To hear how brave these women are is just amazing,said Bruce Rogers, owner of Brewsters Coffee House at 2191 North US 27 in Sebring. Rogers has created a unique,and uncomfortable, display of artwork which now is being displayed in the coffee shop to break the silence around breast cancer. I wanted to do something that was different. Something that was a little more bold,a little out of the box,said Rogers. You know breast cancer isnt always the pretty picture that is displayed on the magazine covers and I want people to get that. The shop owner first began his mission to pay tribute to those who have won and lost the battle with breast cancer. Rogers first got the idea to have a non-traditional breast cancer campaign in the summer when he learned that one of his employees father was diagnosed with cancer Brewsters exhibit showcases body molds to support breast cancer awareness News-Sun photo by SAMANTHA GHOLAR Breast cancer survivors and supporters created bust molds that are currently on display at Brewsters Coffee House in Sebring.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunS EBRING Highlands County Sheriffs members R obin Sanders,R.N. and Detention Deputy Dale Vaughn received MeritA wards at the Highlands County Sheriffs Offices Quarterly Recognition C eremony held on Nov. 7. On Aug. 14,2012,an i nmate in the Highlands County Jail appeared to suffer some type of seizure and became unresponsive. A medical emergency wasc alled by the post officer. Vaughn and Sanders,a Registered Nurse with more t han 20 years experience, attempted to revive the i nmate using CardioPulmonary Resuscitation (CPRut were unsuccessful.U ndeterred,they tried the Automated External Defibrillator (A.E.D. p le times to no avail. CPR continued until the arrival of E mergency Medical Services at which time the victim was transported to an appropriate medical facility. The inmate survived and t he actions of immediate emergency care taken by Vaughn and Sanders were i nstrumental in saving the life of the inmate. S heriff Susan Benton complimented the quick actions taken by these members say-i ng,This is the third inmate that Nurse Robin Sanders has revived during her tenure h ere and the second one this year. This is further proof t hat while all of our Detention members are trained in CPR,having an experienced Medical Team on staff makes a significantd ifference in our first responder capabilities.

Continued on page 5A Associated PressWASHINGTON The Supreme Court said Friday it will consider eliminating the governments chiefw eapon against racial discrimination at polling places since the 1960s. Acting three days after the election,the justicesa greed to hear a constitutional challenge to the part of the landmark Voting Rights Act that requires all or parts of 16 states with a history of discrimination inv oting to get federal approval before making any c hanges in the way they hold elections. The appeal from Shelby C ounty,Ala.,near Birmingham,says state and l ocal governments covered by the law have made significant progress and no longer should be forced to live under oversight fromW ashington. The high court conside red the same issue three years ago but sidestepped what Chief Justice JohnR oberts then called a difficult constitutional quest ion. Since then,Congress has not addressed potentialp roblems identified by the court. Meanwhile,the las opponents sensed its vulnera bility and filed several new lawsuits. A ddressing those challenges,lower courts have concluded that a history of discrimination and more recent efforts to harmm inority voters justify continuing federal oversight. T he justices said they will examine whether the formula under which states are covered is outdated because it relies on data that is now4 0 years old. By some measures,states covered by the law are outperforming some that were not. Tuesdays election results a lso provide an interesting backdrop for the courts action. Americans re-elected Barack Obama,the nations first AfricanAmerican president. Exitp olls across the country indicated Obama won more t han 70 percent of Hispanics and more than 90 percent of blacks. InA labama,however,exit polls showed Obama won o nly about 15 percent of the states white voters. In neighboring Mississippi, the numbers were even smaller,at 10 percent,exitp olling found. The case probably will be a rgued in February or March,with a decision expected by late June. Thea dvance approval,or preclearance requirement,was a dopted in the Voting Rights Act in 1965 to give federal officials a potent tool tod efeat persistent efforts to keep blacks from voting. The provision was a huge s uccess,and Congress periodically has renewed it over t he years. The most recent occasion was in 2006,when a Republican-led Congress overwhelmingly approved and President George W.B ush signed a 25-year extension.

There was a lot of money spent at the s tate level,too. According to the Florida Secretary of State website,between Jan. 1 and Nov.1 ,2012 Denise Grimsley spent about $660,000 in her run for the Florida S enate. Again,a barely contested election. Crystal Drake and Cary Pigman, a ccording to the Florida Secretary of State,spent $40,000 and $174,000, r espectively,running for the Florida House of Representatives. The amount of money spent getting elected in 2012 is beyond shocking its obscene. J ust take the $6 billion spent at the federal level. Think about how many housing loans,college scholarships,andg rants to small businesses could have been created with all that cash. What a colossal waste. A ccording to the Center for Responsive Government and the Center for Public Integrity brace yourselfa gain between April 2012 and Nov. 1, 2012 there were 1.1 million ads that ran o n T.V.,most running in battleground states,as we here in Florida can attest. Two generations ago the threat to repr esentative government hid in smoke filled back rooms,where established l ocal political powers manipulated the process. Reforms begun in the 1960s,meant to bring politics out of the shadow and into the light,unfortunately created differ-e nt,but equally serious problems. Money has become the life blood of elections,but spending millions and billions of dollars to gain power can come to no good. The sums are irrational to say the least,and a danger to democracy at the worst. Folks,we cant count on politicians themselves to change the process. It will be up to us to unite and change how we choose candidates,how we finance campaigns,and how long we allow the election cycle to last. We also need to be sure every vote counts. Lets revisit the Electorial C ollege. Created in the 18th Century, when the landed gentry lacked any confidence in men without property,the e lectoral college was invented to restrict the common mans power. I t is time to ammend the constitution on this issue and simply count the popular vote the candidate with the most votes wins. B eyond big changes,there is a smaller action we must take being sure all the votes from soldiers,sailors,marines, airmen or coast guardsmen are counted, and counted before everyone elses e specially from those serving in theaters of war. Election spending out of control Here is the most startling result of the 2012 election:Candidates for the presidency and the federal Senate and House of Representatives spent a record amount of money this election cycle you may want to sit down for this $4.2 billion and counting. According to CNN,the final total will be about $6 billion. So,in case you havent heard,President Barack Obama was re-elected to a second term in office. Both sides vowed to comet ogether in a spirit of unity a nd work for what was best for the country instead of their own partisanship g oals. B wahaha! That last was a joke on my part,in ana ttempt to cheer myself up today. Because of course, as a friend of mine aptlyp ut it,it didnt matter who won the election this go round,half the country was going to be unhappy.And she was right. I am unhappy for two reasons today.The first is that my candidate lost this time. Like many,d hopedf or a different outcome this election. The second reason I m unhappy is that James i s not moving back to Florida as Id hoped. What does that have to do with t he election,you ask? Nothing,but its contributing to my all around bad mood. It doesnt help that I stayed up far later than I should have to watch election coverage and talk with James on the phone. This means I spent a lot of today sleeping and Not Getting Stuff Done. Thisd oes not make a happy columnist. But lets look at what we have here. President Obama won. Fair and square,he got a majority of the electoral votes. It is what it is. The question now is,what happens next? If looking at Facebook is any indication,both sides are as far apart as ever. Many of the winners lost no time in letting the rest of us know wed lost. (At least this is how it appears the day after; I ignored Facebook election night on purpose). Many on my side of the issues bemoaned what is happening to the country,if the election results were any indication. I worried about friends of mine and their state of thought and was prepared, in spite of my own feelings,to talk people off ledges today. At least we dont have a repeat of the election of2 000,which neither side wanted as far as I know. T hat is one bright light to look at in this mess. Another bright spot is t his:when I got up this morning,the sun was up,it was pleasant outside and I s till lived in the United States of America,which is s till a pretty good country to live in. Yes,we are having trials now in this country,and we all have very different ideas on how tod eal with the problems now facing us. But we are still Americans,and we can still deal with whats going on. I really believe that we can still avoid the fiscal cliff ahead of us if we willo nly work together to do so. I dont think any A merican,conservative or liberal,Republican or Democrat,wants to sail off that cliff. This means letting go of our disappoint-m ent and finding ways to work under the circumstances. Im not saying its going to be easy or fun but its either that or builda bunker and wait for Armageddon. I choose to try to salvage our nation, not write it off. I hope all Americans make the same choice. On a more positive note, I will be doing a book signing today for my novel, Dead Hypocrites,which is now a print book as well as an ebook. Itll be at Brewsters Coffee House on U.S. 27 from 3-5:30 p.m. Id love a chance to meet my readers,so if youre free this afternoon, come on by. I promise Ill be in a better mood.

Opinions expressed in letters or columns are solely the opinion of that author and not necessarily the opinion of the staff or editors of the News-Sun No match for the Creators powerEditor: It would behoove all of us to pause and rethink what the Scripture says,Be still and know that I am God. When we look at the devastation caused by that wild, unpredictable hurricane, Sandy,we are reminded our technology we have come to idolize is no match for the power of our Creator. For many,many years early every morning and late every evening,I have searched the Bible for wisdom,knowledge and understanding. Though I cannot always understand perfectly,this one I know:Jesus Christ is the living Son of God and He is about to return. These are the days of sorrow.The signs of the times match accurately with the KJV (King James Version) of the Scriptures,written more than 2,000 years ago. The best selling book on the market today. Lets look at Matthew, chapter 24:6-8,Jesus is saying this:And ye shall hear of rumors of wars:see that ye be not troubled,for all these things must come to pass but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom and there shall be famines and pestilences and earthquakes in divers places. All these are the beginnings of sorrows. The Apostle St. Luke writes what he hears what Jesus says,Chapter 21,verses 25-26,36:And there shall be signs in the sun,in the moon and the stars and upon the earth distress of nations,with perplexity,the seas and the waves roaring: Mens hearts failing them for fear and looking for those things coming on the earth; for the powers of Heaven shall be shaken. Watch ye therefore and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass and to stand before the Son of Man. Una V.McLaughlin SebringNext candidate needs to appeal to all votersEditor: Another election over and President Obama won a second term. I think President Obama owes some thanks to the Republican governors of Florida,Ohio and Wisconsin for his win. Governors Kasich in Ohio,Scott in Florida and Thompson in Wisconsin all are well known as lackes to large corporate special interests and all slavishly follow the Billionaire Koch brothers agenda. The voters in these states had seen enough of these governors to realize that Mitt Romney was cut from the same mold. Obama won all these states. These governors and Mitt Romney pay lip service to the issues that conservatives care about,but many voters didnt buy it and stayed home or voted for Obama. The GOP had a nominee and swing state governors that were living breathing examples of the country club set and corporate crony-ism. If the Republicans thought these clowns were appealing to working class conservatives,they have been way too deep into their own koolaid. As a lifelong Republican,I could see this train wreck coming. No doubt the GOP will draw the wrong conclusion from this loss and think they werent acting enough like Democrats. The real reason for their failure is the fact that they are picking candidates that only have appeal on Wall Street and in the Hamptons. Maybe they will get it right next time. D. B. Orr Avon Park BouquetGFWC Womans Club grateful for donationsEditor: The GFWC Womans Club of Sebring extends a big Thank Youto all who made our flea market a huge success.The members and some husbands (you know who you are) donated generously of their time and labor. The community has supported us with both donations and attendance at the sale. With such good customers we were able to break previous record sales. During the year we were given storage space for our treasures by U-Lock-It Storage and Century Storage.We are very grateful for this support of the club and our community. Any items that were not sold were also put to good use. Recipients were The Peace River Safe House,and the Church Service Center. A large supply of yarn was given to the Methodist Prayer Shawl Committee, and paperback books were delivered to the jail. Events like the flea market enable us to fund the programs we support all year, including:The Peace River Safe House,Adopt-a Highway Program,Salvation Army,HOBY (The Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Program),Woodlawn Elementary School RIF program (Reading is Fundamental),and scholarships for woman at SFSC. Funds are also used for supplies to make items for local hospitals,hospice centers, and nursing homes. Toni Goff,Flea Market Chairman GFWC Woman's Club of Sebring

For example,in May at the e nd of the 2011-2012 school year nine students from four schools were referred to the districts substance abuse program.

I had several friends this yeard iagnosed with different types of cancer. Many of them didnt even know it. Thats the scariest part about cancer. We all admire the beautifulw oman walking down the beach in her bikini looking pretty and perfect,but we dont know her story. She may not even know her story.Y ou could very well be a walking time bomb,Rogers explained. W ith his mission in hand, Rogers set out to recruit local models and artists who haveb een touched by breast cancer to create a campaign that will h ighlight their struggles and victories. After seeing a body mold o f a pregnant friend,Rogers knew just what to do to create u nique artwork that will also show breast cancer support and awareness. With the help of six models and local artist,Rogers creat-e d the first annual Brewsters Breast Cancer Awareness E xhibit. Models were cast by local artist Krista Flores. Each of the womens breasta nd tummy were molded, similar to the pregnancy molds,then dried and hand painted by local artists. The artists were asked by Rogers to create whatever comes to youby using the different stories of each of the models. The artists went to work creating one-of-a-kind artwork to go along with the touching stories of each of the women. T he busts were hand pain ted and now hang on display inside Brewsters Coffee House to continue the awareness of the disease beyond the traditional awareness month. Brewsters currently is working with the local Samaritans Touch organization to raise money to help w omen with the cost of mammograms. Any donations for t he cause may be given directly to Samaritans Touch. Im going to leave them up indefinitely; as far as I know I havent gotten any complaints. We dont have to go to New York or California to enjoy culture and art. Whos ays culture and art cant be right here in little old Sebring, Florida?Rogers said. omen dont have to suffer in silence. I dont feel its anything to be ashamed of. Is it al ittle bit uncomfortable,yes. But I feel like thats the way it should be sometimes.

I knew from the beginning that infantry was what I wanted to do if I was going to go in,he said. M cKee took the entrance test and was told he could pretty much go in any division he wanted. He wanted infantry,and thats where hew ent. Amanda joked that was best for Josh,because he doesnt like to sit at a desk. McKee spent three months i n Parris Island,S.C. at boot camp. He then went to the School of Infantry at Camp Geiger,N.C. and was assiged to the 3rd Battalion/8th Marines at Camp Lejeune,N .C. Josh and Amanda Screws m et at a Fourth of July cookout in 2009. The next day, Josh went back to NorthC arolina. For the next 364 days,Amanda spent a lot of l ong weekends in North Carolina. Theywere married July 3,2010. This was Joshs second deployment to Afghanistan. D uring his first deployment,Josh was on foot p atrol,and in front of his group serving as leader and point man since there wereo nly a few of them when hw stepped on an improvised e xplosive device,or IED. Fortunately it was faulty. The blasting cap went off a nd a puff of dirt came up between my legs when I stepped on it,he said. A b omb disposal unit rushed in and told Josh to back away. T hey dug up a jug with 20 pounds of explosives in it. That was a really wierd day,he said. He served in Afghanistan about ninem onths before he would be sent back to the States. He was in the States just shy two days of a year before he was sent back for his second deployment. At the time of his incident,he had beeni n Afghanistan for five of the seven months he was supp osed to be there. He said the American troops partner a lot with the Afghanistan soldiers,letting them do as much as possible. I n his humble way,Josh said he was in charge of his post on Sept. 20,a more gentle way of saying he was acting squad leader. He hadr eceived a call to come down to the entrance of the fixed o perations base. Their job, basically,was to assist as n eeded those coming into the camp. The Afghanistan army guys had stopped a Pakistan guy who had come in. Theyw ere getting him fingerprinted to make sure there were n o hits on him. Then another Afghanistan guy comes in on a dirt bike,Josh said. He a nd a fellow Marine and an Afghanistan translator began w alking to the motorcyclist to find out what he needed. It all felt really wierd. It j ust didnt feel right. The way he brushed his hand through his hair was just wierd. Then w hen we were about 30 meters from him,he rocks his A K back. I tried to take cover,but the closest cover was actually between us. I had to run toward him about 10 feet,Josh said. A s Josh reached cover,he looked behind him for his Marine buddy. Rounds were hitting all over the ground around him. I yelled at him to get up there with me. By the time he got to me,he justl aid out. He couldnt do anything,he recalls. J osh knew he still had to deal with the insurgent who had posed as an Afghan ally. He told the Afghanistan to go one way and he would go theo ther. Josh was shot in the right leg,but the gunman went down as well. As he did,Josh said,the gunmans body exploded. O nce he knew the area was s ecured,Josh radioed in that he and a fellow Marine were i njured. The security team came in and put a tourniquet on Joshs leg. I didnt think it was too bad. It felt like a punch whenI was hit. I was more conc erned they get my buddy help,he said. W hat he thought was only a bullet hole on the back of his leg turned out to be the back part of his hamstring that had been blown away. J osh and his 19-year-old comrade were both flown to the hospital. Josh has had four surgeries; his buddy, who received two gunshots in a leg and one in the stomach,has had more. I t took four days after his injury for Josh to make it b ack to the States and another two weeks in the hospital before he was released. His wife and parents,Marty and Jackie McKee,rushed up tob e at his side. His parents returned to Lake Placid after a few days,but Amanda stayed behind. I wouldnt have been able t o make it without her there, Josh said as he looked at his w ife. The damage to his leg has m ade it difficult to walk. The loss of nerve has made it so my foot doesnt work right,and its very painful, he said. J oshs future is uncertain. For now he has physical thera py three times a week,trying to improve the range of motion in his foot. He hasb een told to expect about a year of physical therapy. A manda said one of the things that irritates them the most is the large number of people who think its all over. Our men and women are going out on patrols all t he time. e still have people over t here but you never hear anything about them on the news anymore. In the backs of their mind every day,they wonder if they are puttingt heir own lives on the line. Josh,a lance corporal, returns to Virginia next week for a follow-up appointment with doctors. He will learn then what the next steps will be,but alreadyk nows he will be promoted to the rank of corporal. A lot of people talk about seeing their life pass before their eyes when they face something like I did. All I could think about as it wash appening,was the things closest to me ... my wife,my parents,my sister. All I could think about was getting out of there andb ack to them.

BYGREGORYCLAYMcClatchy-TribuneThey accepted the call to serve. Some even volunteered. All are sports figures who found honor,duty and commitment in serving their country in the military. Some left their respective playing fields and arenas lucrative monetary deals notwithstanding simply to make a difference.And many athletes-eager-to-be-soldiers offered their services to the Armed Forces mere days after the Day of Infamy (Dec.7,1941). In sports,there is a clich called impose your will.Well,this group imposed its will of patriotism,with s ome even paying the ultimate sacrifice. Dont just identify with them because of their memorable games or matches in their sports;also think of them during Memorial Day,Veterans Day,the Fourth of July and the anniversaries of V-E Day and V-J Day. In fact,we should acknowledge them with a firm one-handed salute every day,especially during our current circumstance of war involvement abroad. The following is a historical testament to the athletes some established and some aspiring who should be remembered also for earning their stripes away from the playing fields. On Veterans Day,we honor them with a 21-gun salute of course,in the form of 21 questions. CGSC.ARMY T HE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS


C M Y K D ear Abby: A friends daughter was married several years ago. I attended the shower and her wedding, and gave gifts for both. Two months after the wedding,I received a thankyou note in which a form letter was enclosed that read, By the way,we are now separated and getting a divorce! I was shocked not only by the news,but even more that my gifts were not returned with the divorce announcement. This young lady is now being married again to a different man. If I attend the shower/wedding,am I obligated to give her another set of gifts? Or should I skip the shower and go to the wedding without giving another gift? What is proper in this case? Confused in Massachusetts Dear Confused: The rule of etiquette regarding disposition of wedding gifts whena couple divorces after a short time is that any unused items (preferably in their original packaging) go back to the givers. However,to return cookware,linens, china,glassware,etc.,that have been used is impractical,so please dont hold a grudge. If you decide to attend the shower and/or wedding for your friends daughter,it is customary to give a gift. Dear Abby: I recently began a new job,and although I love what I do,I have only one problem. My boss,Harold,does not like eating lunch by himself. Every day,he asks me what Im doing for lunch. If I sayI brought my lunch,he wants me to eat it in his office with him. If I tell him Im going out,he wants us to go out together. I dont think hes attracted to me; I just think he hates being alone. Hes entirely too clingy,and I feel my lunch break is supposed to be a time to do whatever I want to do. I dont believe the last lady who worked for him had a problem with this,butI do. How do I tell him no without offending him or h urting his feelings? Lunch Buddy in South Carolina Dear Lunch Buddy: Tell your boss politely but firmly that you need your lunch hour to perform personal tasks go shopping,make personal phone calls or catch up on some reading. You are entitled to that break time, and that is what it should be used for. Dear Abby: A family member has six cats and wants to have the Thanksgiving meal at her house. Every time I eat there,I find cat hair on the table,on the plates and in the food. I dont want to cause hard feelings,but how do I handle this? Im allergic to cats. Hold the Fur in Amarillo,Texas Dear Hold the Fur: Your health must come first. Arrange to celebrate Thanksgiving elsewhere and curtail your visit. If the relative attempts to guiltyou into changing plans,explain that you cannot because you have become allergic to cat hair and dander and your doctor has instructed you to avoid exposure. Dear Readers: Today is V eterans Day,and I would like to take this opportunity to thank not only our veterans,but also those men and women who are still on active duty for their service to our country.

Or when we see how theyh umbly give of themselves or whatever they have for a child in the midst of suffering; or a mother or fatherw ho needs a hand up. War tears down and ravages a country and destroysi nnocent lives. But,our men and women in uniform are held to ac ode of ethics that sees the many needs and tries to m eet them even in the midst of the horror there forced to face. They aret here to liberate and protect; not divide and conq uer. They are motivated to operate with winsome wisdom in the situations with which they are presented.H ow thankful and proud we are of our vets. T he Bible,in James 3: 13-18,NKJV describes behavior that is touted asw isdom; but is not. And, then,it moves on to d escribe true wisdom. Who is wise and understanding among you:Let h im show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. (vs. 13 Right there we see the a ttitude that will reflect good conduct meekness. Meekness isnt weakness. It is strength under control. Like the wildh orse that is tamed,a meek character still possesses g reat strength; but,that strength is channeledr eflecting appropriate b ehavior. How often have you thanked a hero only to hear him humbly say, I was only doing my job. However,the verses warn that bitter envy ands elf-seeking shouldnt pretend to be wisdom. That heart lies since envy and selfseeking are earthly,sensua l,demonic for where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evilt hing are there.(vs. 16 Have you ever experienced someones accusa-t ions accompanied by an attitude of discord while t rying to impress you with godlywisdom? Confusion and doubt are present. G odly wisdom has a different face. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable,gentle, willing to yield,full of mercy and good fruits,w ithout partiality and without hypocrisy.(vs. 17 T rue wisdom wont antagonize,alienate or emphasize othersmistakes.I t wont minimize other peoples feelings; but, r ather is sensitive. Ones own agenda takes second place to anothers.That p erson is reasonable,teachable,approachable,easy to work with and non-critical of the suggestions of others.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Archaeologist Dr. Bob Austin presents Economic and Social Uses of Lithic Raw Materials at Fort Centerduring theK issimmee Valley Archaeological Conservancs Speaker Series at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15,at South FloridaS tate College,Highlands Campus,Building G,Room 101. The public is invited at no cost. Excavation at Fort Center in the 1960s recovered stonet ools from several contexts. These were interpreted as having been produced on-site for use in utilitarian tasks. Reanalysis indicates all oft he stone was imported and that much of it arrived as finished bifaces or small cobbles. Little evidence exists for o n-site production of bifaces, but convincing evidence can be found for the making of flake tools and microliths. The association of thermally altered Archaic-period pro-j ectile points with burials and a possible charnel house suggests they were meant to function in the realm of mortuary ritual. A ustin is vice president and principal investigator of Southeastern Archaeological Research,Inc. He received his doctoral degree in anthro-p ology from the University of Florida and his Masters of Art degree in cultural resource management from the University of South Florida. He has worked as ana rcheologist for over 30 years conducting projects in Florida and the greater southeast,the American west,the mid-Atlantic,the Caribbean,a nd Africa. He is interested in the social and economic uses of lithic raw material, site formation processes,the Woodland-Mississippiant ransition,and Seminole War military archaeology.

C M Y K Page 6BNews-SunSunday, November 11, 2012www.newssun.com The term Gastropod sounds like somethingo ut of a bad science fiction movie. In reality,g astropods are generally defined as being as inglevalved,soft bodied animal belonging to the mollusk phylum. Slugs are basically a terrestrial gastropod without an obvious shell. Most of as lugs body is the huge muscle that is the foot. It creeps a long by contracting a series of muscles on the underside of the body.These unpopular,s limy looking critters require moisture to survive. They t end to dry out very easily; therefore they reside in habitats where they can get to moisture when the weather is dry. S lugs,like all gastropods, undergo a process called tors ion,which means that while developing,their internal organs rotate 180 degrees. This process usually places the anus above the creatures head. Although slugs vary greatly from family to family,m ost types have two pairs of tentacles on their head. The top pair senses light and sports eyespots on the tips. The bottom tentacles providet he sense of smell. All of the feelers are retractable and will regrow if damaged. Slugs are symmetrical in appearance. They move byc ontracting their muscles on the underside of the foot, which leaves a film of mucus in its path as it travels. This slimy layer protects the slugs tender tissues from damageb y keeping moisture in its path. The slugs underside or f oot is surrounded by tiny structures called foot fringe, which aids in the preventiono f slipping down when crawling up a surface. S lugs are hermaphrodites, which means they have both female and male reproductive organs. They do seek mates however and once the deed isd one,the slug lays approximately 30 eggs in or on the g round a few days later. Because they secrete the mucus,slugs leave a slime trail. This sticky path aids other slugs in the mating process by following ther oute to the desired creature. Unfortunately for the slug, t he slime route also assists predators in finding their slippery prey. S lugs bodies are made up of mostly water. Since they d ont have shells they dry out quickly and need to produce moisture for their survival. They produce two different types of mucus. One is at hick,sticky substance while the other is thin and watery. T hey use the thick mucus to spread from front to back and the watery type to spread from its center out to the edges. They also produce slime to coat their bodies. B ecause slugs need moisture,they are usually active a t night or when it rains. During the heat of the day, they can be found unders tones and logs,in leaf litter and around the base of plants. S ome species will dig very deep to escape the heat and find moisture. Slugs breathe through the pneumostome or an externalo pening of the lung on the right or left side of their b ody. Even though slugs appear to be without a shell, most of the slimy creatures retain a small portion of it. The shell is usually internal and serves as a storage area for calcium salts,which aidsi n the digestive process. Most slugs are completely harmless to humans; however they do cause damage to some crops. They can actual-l y destroy foliage faster than the plant can grow. Although known mostly as a pest,slugs do benefit the environment in some ways. They eat deada nd decaying vegetation and fungus. Some slugs are carnivorous and eat other slugs and snails or worms. They also feed on carrion. But what eats the slugs? F rogs,snakes,salamanders, turtles,rats,insects and some b irds prey on slugs. When threatened,slugs contract their bodies,making them-s elves smaller and more solid. When they do this,the s lime that covers their body makes it difficult for the predator to get a grip. The mucus is also not tasty to the attacker and many times thes limy creature can make its escape. S ome slugs even go so far as to selfamputate their tail to get away.Slug factsSlugs are invertebrates; which means that they dont have a backbone. In fact,they dont have bones at all. Slugs dont have teeth or t ongues. They have a special organ called a radula that has thousands of tiny protrusions that help them grind up their food. Slugs are hermaphrodites; which means that they have both male and female organs and can fertilize their own eggs. The biggest slug in the United States is the Banana Slug; it can grow to be nearlya foot long! Slugs can absorb oxygen directly from the atmospherei n addition to breathing through the respiratory pore. Depending on the species,slugs live from one to six years.

C M Y K BUSINESS C SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, November 11, 2012 TRAUTMAN, BOB; 9.347"; 12"; Black plus three; process, main residential; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 4 9 9 8 8 6 6CLASSIFIED PAGE3C Young adults applying for college or preparing to enter the workforce are sometimes shocked to find out that that c ertain behaviors that were either tolerated or ignored when they were younger now fall under closer scrutiny and could actually hurt t heir advancement possibilities. Among the biggest culprits are oversharing sensi-t ive personal information in public forums and getting e xtreme tattoos or body art that may not yet be fully acceptable in certain work environments.R ed flagsIt should be common knowledge that many employers perform onlinep rofile searches of job or i nternship candidates. Thell scour public postings on Facebook,Twitter or YouTube looking for inappropriate content like racy photos or videos,racist r emarks or evidence of illegal activities that would rule inappropriate candidates. But many people dont r ealize that colleges,insura nce companies,law e nforcement and government agencies sometimes do the same. Thus,an underage student hoping to boost his coolf actor by posting photos that s how him engaging in drinking games could be disqualified for college admission or even have his scholarship revoked. Privacy settingsAccording to projections by Consumer Reports, roughly 13 million Facebook users have never set,or didt know about,the sites privacy tools,and 28 percent share all,or almost all,of their wall posts with more than just their friends. It pays to thoroughly read the privacy policies of all sites where youve registered, including social networks, your bank,retailers,blogs and news sites where youve made comments,etc. Email is foreverDeleting an email from your computer doesnt mean it no longer exists. Chances are your email provider or employer,if sent from work will retain a record for years to come. Plus,recipients wont necessarily delete the email and may in fact forward it to others. Haunting photosJust like emails,photos posted online can live forever.That includes pictures of you that someone else posted and tagged with your name. My rule of thumb:If you wouldnt want your grandmother to see it,dont do it, say it or film it. Also,dont post photos of your kids that Avoid these privacy red flags Personal Finance Jason Alderman B y SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Vehicle owners in Highlands County now have a newo ption when it comes to getting their cars the loving care they deserve. AAMCO Total Car Care has opened its doors at 555 Highway 27 North (next toL akeshore Mall) in Sebring at the experienced hands of long time technician and owner,StanK ucyzynski. Kucyzynski has been in the car care business for 20 years. The self-d escribed transmission builder had a brief career in the minor l eague baseball world with the Atlanta Braves organization before he decided he needed to find a mores table career. After baseball I went to college. I worked my way through grad school by working as a mechanic, explained Kucyzynski. With formal school training and plenty of on-the-job experience,K ucyzynski was able to provide the money he needed to earn his gradua te degree. After several more years of schooling,Kucyzynski now has completed two other courses andh olds two doctoral degrees from the University of South Florida. O n top of running the automotive shop,Kucyzynski also instructs part time at the University of South F lorida,teaching archeology and history to budding college students. The road to opening the AAMCO came much easier than Kucyzynski e xpected,though he debated the idea for a couple years before putting his plan into action. I had been wanting to do it for two or three years. I had been looki ng for an area in Florida that I could open an AAMCO franchise and there really wasnt many places t hat didnt already have one.

The new name of the company is technically Russell Cellular,but it will still read Verizon on the outside. The new owner is an experienced lady who owns five other stores here in Florida. Russell Cellular has 173 stores in 13 states, Baldwin explained. The biggest change for the store wont be the name,but the products in it. Before the ownership switch on Nov. 1, the establishment was limited in the products and services that it offered. Now the store offers a variety of other services including Direct TV and Comcast contracts for the home,phone and internet. The store also features the newVerizon bill pay stations.

Employers can easily determine if the d egree or past job titles youre claiming are legitimate. Another no-brainer:If y our resume is posted online on Monster.com or LinkedIn, make sure there arent major inconsistencies with the one you submit to prospectivee mployers.TattoosOne-fifth of adults have at l east one tattoo the percentages are higher among younger adults. A few yearsa go,job candidates wouldnt get past the first interview sporting tattoos; today, d epending on the industry and type of customer contact i nvolved,many employers will look the other way. However,some employers d o enforce strict no-tattoo policies which,if based ons ound business reasons,are legal. F ortunately,my own kids a rent old enough for body art to be a consideration,but when they are,ll give them the same advice Id give any young adult:Think about thel ong-term consequences of your actions.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comA VON PARK Its been a trying season for a pair of young teams, learning to find their respective ways. A nd while Sebrings ended on a high note Friday, in a 3 6-0 win at Avon Park, both have a lot to look forward to. Its been an adjustment for me and the players, firsty ear Red Devil head coach Lee Brown said afterward. Bringing in a new system, a new culture, its a learning period. And that doesnt even include the freshman who werent here in the spring and had to learn on the fly Which often lead to mistakes, both physical and mental as the season, and this game, moved along. After receiving the opening kick, Sebring rode their workhorse, running back A.J. Gayle, on a 16-play, 65-yard drive that ate up the first 7:49 of the game and culminated in a one-yard Gayle plunge for a 7-0 lead. Gayle carried 11 times on the drive for 60 yards. Avon Park then got things moving a bit, as the quarterback platoon of Ryan Dick and freshman Damon Braswell each had their moments. Dick ripped off a 21-yard run on a keeper and Braswell completed an 11-yard pass to Steven Roberts. Then a little razzle dazzle was put into action as Braswell tossed a pass along the line back to Dick, who sent a pass downfield for a 29-yard gain. But a penalty, a bad snap and an incomplete pass shortcircuited the progress made and forced a punt. Further snafus would come back to haunt the Devils when, after a 59-yard Gayle run, defensive back Jarviel Hart got into the backfield on a second-andseven, sacking Jari Watson for a loss. This lead to a punt, but another penalty gave Sebringa first down. Two Gayle runs went for short yardage and the StreaksHunter Livingston attempted a 34-yard field goal against a slight, cool breeze that came up short. Having avoided that scoring threat, Avon Park got the ball back at the 20, but promptly saw a pass picked off by Jacquae Peart, giving the Streaks possession at the 17. Davaris Faulk then took a handoff and raced around the left end for the score to make it a 14-0 lead.

N ews-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE A ustin Westergom tries to keep control of the ball while being pressured by this Lake Wales defender in Thursdays Blue Streak win over the Highlanders. By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Coming from behind is probably one of the greatest accomplishments and feelings when it comes to sports. T hats exactly what the L ady Blue Streaks were able to do Thursday night as they triumphed over a talented Okeechobee team on the final night of the Preseason Tip-Off tournament. eve been together so long, we dont have such a s teep learning curve, said head coach Mike Lee. The girls have been working together very well since the summer and theyve really come together. Sebring beat Okeechobee 60-42, but the start for the Streaks was sluggish. They allowed the Lady Brahmans to excel to a 12-2 l ead in the first quarter, marking the start of their uphill b attle. B ut they started the climb quickly and decisively as the rode a second quarter offensive surge to catch and then p ass Okeechobee. With the defense clamping d own, the offensive opportunities went up, as did the n umbers on the scoreboard, Lady Streaks make it two in a row See SEBRING, Page 5D By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING The temperatures were going onew ay, the Blue Streaks another Thursday night. F or as the degrees plummeted during the e vening hours, the Sebring soccer squad heated up, s coring five times over the final 60 minutes of the match for a 5-1 district win over visiting Lake Wales. Byron Cobb got the scoring started, fresh from returning from his 11th-place finish in the State Diving Finals in Orlando, got the scoring goal with the Streaks first goal of the game. Riley Watson added one of his own, as did Filemon Chavez. Cobb then added another, perhaps taking out some vengeance that his diving scores couldnt have added a mere 2.25 higher and put him in the top-10, to all but put the match away. Brian Dixon later added the final touches on the match with a goal to provide for the final margin. I feel like we were getting stronger offensively because we passed more and worked more as a team, said Blue Streak senior Elias Salgado. It went really well and Im r eally glad we got another district win. This puts Sebring at 2-0 in the early going of thed istrict slate, after Tuesdays 2-0 win at T enoroc. The Lady Streaks, howe ver, werent able to make it two in a row as they fell o n the road at Lake Wales, 2-0. First-year varsity keeper, Shannon Bloemsma, had a fantastic night, turning back shot after shot to the tune of 16 saves. But the Lady Highlanders managed to get two past and while Haylee Peters and Heather Bloemsma lead the Streaks with five and three shots on goal, respectively, none would find the net. Both Sebring squads have a busy week, with three matches coming up. The boys host LaBelle Monday, with the girls on the road against the Lady Cowboys, a similar home and away takes place Tuesday against Winter Haven and the teams flip the script with the girls hosting Auburndale Thursday and the boys on the road to face the Bloodhounds.

Gayle was a workhorse Friday night, carrying 30 times for 182 yards in Sebrings 360 win over Avon Park to wind up the 2012 football season. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK The term cross-county battle doesnt get any more literal than it did Thursday night as the Avon Park and Sebring wrestling teams opened up their respective seasons by squaring off on the mat. Lake Wales and Frostproof were on hand as well, in the four-team Pre-Season Classic, and would be matched up with as well. But the evening got started mano a mano, Red Devil versus Blue Streak, as former teammates Blake Germaine and Josh Miller now opposed each other from across the squared circle Germaine is in his first year at the helm with program founders Ed Brown and Lee Elder leaving it in his charge. And though Sebring came with a teeming line-up of wrestlers, it was the experienced Avon Park squad that got the win. This is the largest group of wrestlers Ive ever had, Miller said. But we still have a lot of inexperienced wrestlers who need to get matches. But the advantage of the high numbers saw itsimpact as Corey Barnes got a win by forfeit in the 106-pound weight class, as did Juardo Bautista at 132. The Streaks then earned three other wins the hard way, on the mat. Chris DeJesus had a battle on his hands with Red Devil Delroy Blake, in the most evenly contested and riveting match of the night. The two went back and forth into the final period before a couple of late scoring moves had DeJesus winning on points in the 220pound weight class. Ty Johnson saw his effort a bit easier and a tad more dominating as he got a pin in the second period of the 182pound match, and Matt Juve also won by a pin in the second period of the 170 class. But from there, Avon Park returned the favor as two state qualifiers from a year ago showed off their strength and experience.

Josh Hamilton, B.J. Upton and Kyle Lohse were among nine free agents who turned down $13.3 million offers from their former clubs Friday as the annual general managersended and team officials headed home for what figures to be a busy month of negotiations. Also rejecting the one-year guaranteed offers were the New York Yankeestrio of N ick Swisher, Rafael Soriano and Hiroki Kuroda along with David Ortiz, Michael Bourn and Adam LaRoche. Under baseballs new labor contract, all the deadlines of the business season has been speeded up in an attempt to prompt quicker decisions before the Christmas holidays. That should create more activity in the market before teams head to the winter meetings in Nashville, Tenn., from Dec. 3-6. It expedites things, People are out there and available and being discussed right away, said Dave Dombrowski, president of the ALchampion Detroit Tigers. It definitely has picked things up more quickly Under the old rules, teams had until Dec. 7 to offer salary arbitration to their former p layers who became free agents. Top players under a statistical formula that was part of the 1981 strike settlement had compensation attached if they signed with new clubs which would lose high-round draft picks. Under the labor contract agreed to last November, that system was replaced by qualifying offers. Ateam could make a qualifying offer last week that was the average of the 125 highest big league contracts by average annual value $13.3 million this year. Just nine of 165 major league free agents were given the offers Ortiz then agreed to a $26 million, two-year deal to stay with the Red Sox. The group all said no in anticipation of receiving more dollars and years in the open m arket. Now if they switch teams, their new club will lose a draft choice next June its highest pick, unless that selection is among the top 10 in the first round. If a club signs more than one qualified free agent, it forfeits its highest remaining pick for each additional qualified free agent it adds. For some of the remaining eight players, compensation may cause some teams to shy away. ould I have less interest in guys if I lost my No. 1 pick? Yes, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said. Ive been recently trying to steer clear of losing our draft pick. In the past decade, free agents requiring compensation ranged from a low of 12 in 2003 to a high of 41 the following year with the average at 22. The new rules mean teams can sign more players without figuring in the loss of draft selections, who are prized because they are years from eligibility for arbitration and free agency. Only the elite players require compensation. The group thats below them include pitchers Zack Greinke and Ryan Dempster, outfielders Torii Hunter and Ichiro Suzuki, catcher Mike Napoli and first baseman Carlos Pena. Melky Cabrera, the All-Star game MVP, also is available after serving his 50-game suspension for a positive drug test. Most qualifying offers are really for players of the highest value, agent Scott Boras said. Theres a lot of good players that didnt receive qualifying offers. It allows for s o much earlier planning than the other system, so I think its really been very good. It allows more freedom for those players that fit below that top regime of talent. There wasnt a major trade announced during the threeday session, and the podium at the Hyatt Regency Indi an Wells Resort & Spa owned by Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort wasnt used a single time. But there was ample discussion among team executives and with the many agents on hand. While in past seasons teams held off completing free agent deals until Dec. 8 not wanting to lose draft picks they anticipate being more aggressive. Trade talks appear to be in t he feeling-out stage. Among the players who might be available are Arizona outfielder Justin Upton and Boston outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury. Individually there might be people who are gaining momentum in their discussions, Cashman said. Im not.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe late-season surge by the Lake Placid offense continued Friday as they closed out the season at Lemon Bay. Their defense, however, had trouble keeping up with the Manta Rays in the 55-35 loss on the coast. For a moment early on, however, it was the Dragond efense that got them on the b oard. Lemon Bay was driving behind quarterback Lucas Sparks and had it deep in Lake Placid territory. Sparks was then running the ball and was near the Dragon four, w hen Jerry Fields stripped it away from him and was off to the races. The sophomore defensive back didnt stop until crossing the end line 96 yards away to give Lake Placid an early 7-0 lead. But the Class 7ARays w erent about to let their undefeated home record come to an end on this night, and Sparks was goingt o make up for his mistake. On the next drive, Sparks t ook a keeper 45 yards for the tying score, and after L emon Bay recovered the ensuing onside kick, he w ent left on a 25-yard touchdown run to put his squad on top. Soon after, Sparks connected with Nicholas Mostyn on a 30-yard score, the Manta Raysthird in just over four minutes. Late in the first half, Sparks would carry it in again, from 15 yards out, but from there it would be a shoot out with the Dragons more than matching the Rays scoring output. Robert Walton would c onnect with his favorite target Ricky Miller on a 39yard touchdown to make it a 28-14 game at the half. L emon Bay went up with two touchdowns in the t hird, to Lake Placids one, and added to it with a 50y ard Sparks run early in the fourth to make it 48-21. With 8:42 left, Alan Borovsky punched in one more Mantas score on a one-yard plunge, but Marquavein Copeland added a 15-yard touchdown run. After recovering the ensuing onside kick, the Dragons drove again and Copeland found a gap and raced 22 yards for another score. B ut it wasnt going to be enough in the end. P lenty of positives could be seen, however, as Walton c ontinued the progress seen t hroughout his junior season, topping 200 yards passing on the night and bringing his season total to 819 yards with 12 touchdowns, while Miller had six receptions for 138 yards. And while Miller, and his 631 yards on the season and nine touchdowns, will be lost to graduation, along with eight other Dragon players, Lake Placid will return much of this years squad, which saw the offense grow by leaps and bounds.

But a sack and a reverse that went for minus-two yards soon saw the drive again stalled and the half would soon end with the two touchdown Sebring lead. Things took a turn as the s econd half got underway as t he opening kickoff was fumbled, giving the ball to Sebring, and Avon Park linebacker Lacy Turner lay in pain on the field with what is believed to be a broken elbow. After Turner was attended t o and taken for further care, the Streaks went right to work, with Ladante Harris taking a reverse 31 yards, Gayle a handoff for four yards and Faulk for 20 to the one. Faulk then covered the final yard and Harris took in the two-point conversion and the lead was 22-0 at the 10:14 mark of the third. From there, both defenses l ocked in, save for a 58-yard Gayle touchdown run that was called back on a penalty, and it went into the fourthq uarter with the scoreboard unchanged. We were trying to get (Gayle S ebring head coach LaVaar Scott said. He had it too, if t hat run doesnt get called back. He came close though, as Gayle would total 182 yards on 30 carries. But the rest of the scoring came via the Blue Streak defense. On a first and 20 early in the fourth, Dick dropped back under heavy pressure. Sacked near the end zone, t he ball came loose and senior lineman Ezell Gammage pounced on it for a touchdown at the 8:15 mark. L ivingston would split the uprights and make it a 29-0 l ead. Then, with little more than t wo minutes remaining and the ball just past midfield, S ebring forced another fumble and there was Gammage again to get it. And not only get it, but scoop it up and rumble the remaining 55 yards for his second touchdown in six minutes, to provide for the final margin. s been a tough year, but these kids kept playing hard, right up until the end,B rown said. I give them a lot of credit for that. And with as young as we are, we have time to get back to worka nd get them ready for next year S cott, too, took the positives out of the season. It was nice to get a win to finish up and give us some m omentum, its been a while, he said. We did some things well and there are still things we need to get better at.

C M Y K Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State raised its Atlantic Coast Conference championship banner before its season opener. Then the Seminoles took the floor and struggled in every way. Antoine Allen hit four 3pointers and scored 21 points to lead South Alabama to a 76-71 season-opening upset of No. 25 Florida State on Friday night. Augustine Rubit added 12 points and Mychal Ammons had 11 points and 11 rebounds for South Alabama, which shot 9 of 15 from 3point range. They were a little tougher than we were, Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton said. They played with a lot more maturity. They executed their game plan better than we did. The Seminoles had won 10 straight season openers coming into Fridays game every game since coach Leonard Hamilton arrived on campus. And Florida State had routed South Alabama 80-39 on Nov. 20, 2011, in Tallahassee. But on Friday, Florida State struggled late in shooting just 10 of 28 (35.7 percent) from the floor in the second half. The Seminoles also had 17 turnovers and just nine assists. Theyre a very good team, Allen said. But we werent scared at all. We were ready for the challenge. We gave it our all for 40 minutes and we came out with the win. South Alabama coach Ronnie Arrow credited a summer trip to Canada that gave the team extra practices and exhibition games for helping the team prepare for the season. t let anybody underestimate those trips once every four years, Arrow said. We went on it, we got 10 extra practices, we got three games. You cant coach experience. It just takes time to develop into it. Hopefully our guys know what it takes now and we just get better and better and better Five Jaguars scored in double figures. s been a long time since we allowed five guys to score in double figures, Hamilton said. They were very on point with everything that they did. Terry Whisnant and Montay Brandon had 11 points apiece for the defending ACC champions. Senior guard Michael Snaer had 10 points at halftime but was held scoreless in the second half. He shot 2 of 11 in the game. Terrance Shannon returned from a shoulder injury to score 10 points for Florida State. Shannon played in just seven games last season after having season-ending sur-g ery in November. The biggest thing with us is we have to have a shortterm memory, Shannon said. Put this game in the past and move on. We know we are young. We know its going to take time. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, November 11, 2012Page 5D DR. LEE, IKE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 11/11/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 4 9 9 9 9 3 3 E .O.

The Brahmans were stunned as their offense had been shut down and their defense was torn apart. T he second half leaned obviously into Sebrings favor as well, as once they seized the lead, they never looked back. With a combined 25 points between the third and fourth quarters, the Streaks were able to stay ahead of Chobees 22 total points of the second half. The final makes it a quick second win for the seasonopening tournament, after Tuesdays defeat of Lake Placid. Four of the Lady Streaks were able to hit double digits on the night. Allie Mann and Shalontay Rose lead the pack with 17 points, while Jamiese Wiley a nd Rondaja Williams each added 10 for the night. The Streaks look to continue their improvement with a triple-header this week, starting with a rematch against the Green Dragons on Tuesday, a trip to another county rival, Avon Park, Thursday and a visit from DeSoto Friday. In other early season action, Bartow was just too much for Lake Placid inT hursdays tournament finale, as the Dragons try to work back into shape and await the addition of Anne Weber-C allahan who was unavailable for the tournament after finishing her swimming season. Lake Placid also plays three g ames this week, traveling to Sebring Tuesday, playing host to Fort Meade Thursday and hitting the road to Lake Wal es Thursday.
