Two things they all have in common:They are inspirational artists and speakers, and they are all contracted to perform in the Faith on Fire event,a Christian music festival,planned for later this year at Westgate River Ranch Resorts in Lake Wales. Candice Anderson,one of the event organizers,grew up hearing her parents talk about the Jesus Festivals they attended. e felt like God was telling us to do this. Wve always felt that we needed revivals back in this country. Faith on Fire will be like a revised version of the Jesus Festivals. There are a lot of people who are Christians but there just not excited about it anymore. We want them to get excited again,and its also for those who have never known what being a Christian is all about. We want them to get to know what it is,she said.

Rosss wife,Joanie Ross,and his son Dylan were at the dedication Number 54 was an amazing athlete, fun to watch and a natural leader. H e was killed in a car crash in June 2012,wearing his seat belt and sitting a t a stop light on his way to work. A car hit his from behind,causing a five-c ar accident. He was the only fatality. Ross,who graduated from Lake Placid High School in 1978,went on to become a stand-out player for Clemson University. In 1980 he was ap art of the team that played in the Elite Eight NCAA Tournament. He was so good he could have played professional ball. Instead,he chose to put his electric al engineering degree to use working for the power industry,most recently Duke Energy,a right-of-way manager for Progress Energy. After living in other cities for a time,Ross returned home where he worked,raised a family and took part in the community and his church.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunThe Highlands County Sheriffs Office is warningl ocal residents about the rise in number of door-todoor salespeople in the area. Everything from vacuu m cleaners to meat to floor cleaners and water t reatments,people are coming around offering to selly ou the best product ever. Door-to-door salespeople do not have to be licensed in Highlands County,so unless they give you back-g round information its not going to be on file at the county and they have not been verified,said HCSO public information officerN ell Hayes. ortunately over the years we are seeing the number of victims decreasing,likely due to the vigilance of our Neighborhood Watch groups and a concentrated effort on the parts of the Crime Prevention Unit,Road Patrol and Criminal Investigations,but we still have people that make deals they wish they hadnt made. Hayes urges residents to understand that when salespeople are invited in to a home,a product or service is bought and that product does not live up to the hype,the majority of the cases are civil in nature and not subject to action by law enforcement. Unfortunately you have the right to make a poor decision. Our advice is tor efrain from doing business with door-to-door salespeople unless you have verified their product or service through the Better BusinessB ureau or unless you have already established a good r elationship with them. Please remember the threee lements of a scam:If its too good to be true,theres an element of secrecy and theres an element of urgency its a scam? H ayes gives another thought to consider. By allowing someone that you dont know to come into your home,you let thems ee what valuables are there,if you have an alarm system or pet,if you live alone,what your routines are and maybe even if you have medications that could have street value. Good salespeople can find out a lot about you simply by asking a few pointed questions and asking to use your bathroom. Please be cautious about who gets to enter your home and your life Questions on door-todoor salespeople may be directed to the Crime Prevention Unit (Nell Hays) at 402-7369 or call Central Dispatch at 4027200 and request law enforcement response.

There were 25,000 women interv iewed for the service,1,830 were accepted,and 1,074 of us got our w ings,Smith said. When I received my wings,I asked what my rank would be. They said,Pretend youre an officer. No one knows youre a civilian flying military aircraft. Dontt ell anyone.It wasnt until 35 years later that we finally received vetera s status,and in 2010,I was awarded the Congressional Medal of H onor.

No one dared challenge him in the free throw lane, his coach Steve Bullock told the audience filling the bleachers; a blocked shot could end up in the fifth row. He was pinpoint accurate on a dead run,Bullock said. He used two hands and shot from his hip. He had a thunderous slam dunk. He was a McDonalds All American. It was always packed, absolutely packed,when he played. Former Avon Park Coach Ronnie Jackson was at the dedication ceremony. He never had a chance to meet Ross but said,I was teaching in the s when Bill played ball here and in Avon Park,so I did have the opportunity to see him play. Ive heard he was a tremendous person as well. It was because Ross was the kind of man people go out of their way to celebrate, Bullock said,not just his awesome talent,that lead to dedicating the gym to him. He added that the recognition is quite an honor for Bill. Lake Placid has a rich basketball history.Stat books are filled with the records of excellent players and coaches,for example,the first Green Dragon Team,1939,is remembered with a mural of their own at 307 E.

B y KELLI KENNEDY Associated PressHALLANDALE BEACH Investigators found human remains Friday in the former backyard of a South Floridac ouple whose baby hasnt been seen in more than a y ear. Calvin Melvin and Britney Sierra were arrested Friday on neglect charges after a child-welfare worker actingo n a tip from an abuse hotline went to their new home and found only two of their three known children. Police said Dontrelle M elvin was 5 months old when he was last seen more than a year ago and his father has given detectives conflicting statements on where he is. The state Department of C hildren and Families said Calvin Melvin and Sierra a rent married and have an on-and-off relationship. Melvin is the father of Dontrelle and one of Sierras other children,but not thet hird. Child welfare officials said they have been involved with the family several times over the past few years,butd eclined to give details. The other two children,whose ages werent known,were taken in DCF care this week. Police say Melvin,27,told them early this week that Dontrelle was living with hisp arents nearby but when investigators went to the pare ntshome,they said that was untrue. When investigators went back to Melvins home, he had disappeared. He went to the police station Thursdayt o be interviewed and was later arrested. Police said he has changed his story several times,including that the baby was in New Jersey with rela-t ives.

C M Y K R ecently,tension between citizens,city s taff and the county's planning department, w ho is contracted to handle the city's plann ing,showed that deciding how a city develops should be handled by someone i ntimate with the community. Someone v ested in how the city grows. With three CRAs,historical properties,a m unicipal airport,state and Federal propert ies all in and around the City of Charm, d evelopment and redevelopment can create v ery unique questions from property owners. In the recent case,a business owners p lans are put on hold because it was not clear what were the proper rules that effecte d parking for apartments. A lthough county staff is certainly compet ent,this recent incident frustrated both the l andowner and city staff. That is apparent by the e-mails and public banter,but it just p oints out fact that a communitys planning e ffects lives in a personal way.A small m istake can cause delays and problems w ith future development and cost a developer thousands of dollars. Since design is one of the four legs used to judge the success of a community,it definantly warrants care and close attention. Only possible with an in-house s taffer. T he city already pays $20,000 a year for t he service to the county; it takes very litt le,and would be simple to put the work out for bid to see what can done. We e ncourage the city leaders to a take a close l ook at retaining a planner for the Avon Park,and help retain the title City of C harm.

Ronald Reagan was P resident. Facebook wasnt even a gleam in anyones eye. Gary Trudeau began a 20-month break from the cartoon series Doonesbury.The world wasq uite a different place back then. And on Jan. 9 of that year a young man and woman stood upb efore God,family,and friends and promised to stay together till death do they part. For better,forw orse,richer,poorer you get the idea. D on and me. We were a lot younger then we are now. Probably had a lot more stars ino ur eyes before reality brushed some of them away. But here we a re. 30 years older and still together. Wve outlasted appliances, pets,and the economys ups and downs. Weve laughed together,g rieved together,and occasionally yelled at each other.Yet even t hrough the latter weve managed to keep it,and ourselves,together. I n this land of easy divorce, this feels like some kind of a chievement. Especially since were both still happy about being together and not just enduri ng. Im not saying its always sunshine and roses between us, but the good has far outweighed the bad over the years. We compliment each other in o ur gifts. Don is the level-headed one,the one who can keep us in budget and on the right track. Hes the organized one that plans our trips and makes sure thingsm ore or less run well in the house. Im the emotional one,the d iplomat,the one who leads us to fun. Im also the tech person oft he house,who Don turns to when the electronics inevitably act up. Wve put the relationship to the test. We endured five movesi n approximately five and a half years believe me,that was a challenge and in my book fits into the for worsepart of the marriage.Wve had ours orrows.Weve had our fights. But at the same time weve had our joys. Weve had the privilege of raising two wonderful sons. We have shared a lot of fun times,a lot of smiles and jokes. How do we manage to stay together? I have to admit that weve been fortunate in that while weve had our bad times, they have never descended into the way of nightmares. Weve always had God in sight,and I know that this has helped us during the darker times. We agreed a long time ago that no matter what,we would find a way to work together through the good times and bad. Its meant putting up with each others flaws. Wve also had to learn to work around our differences. Don is a morning person; Im a night owl. Hes organized to a fault; my office looks like it was hit by a tornado.My temper is shorter than his,but when Dons temper is ignited,look out. The world has changed over the past 30 years. Don and I have changed as well. Wre older now,with two grown sons. We are hopefully wiser than that starry-eyed couple from 30 years ago,and have a better understanding on what our vows mean than we ever did. One thing that has remained constant and growing is our love for each other.I am grateful for that and know that it will only get better over the next 30 years. Happy anniversary,Don.

God bless those childrens families and give them comfort in this sad time! Lord forgive those who would use this tragedy to proliferate their own well intentioned, albeit misguided political agenda. Joe Schirck III SebringFrom the outside looking in on WashingtonEditor: I,Billie E. Jewett,charge Obama, the sitting President of these United States,with treason against the American people. I also charge the United Nations with interfering with the laws of a sovereign nation people by trying to re-write our Constitution and promoting a take-over by foreign powers of a free democratic nation and its people. Treason and the crime of aiding and abetting a criminal act against the American people by two Presidents. President Ronald Reagan rewarded an invading nation,Mexico,and its people with citizenship for violating American laws on immigration; thus destroying the wage scale in America,thus bringing about the financial collapse of institutions, completely destroying the middle class and working class Americans. It created a magnet for even more of the illegal invasion of Mexicans, a foreign power to violate American sovereignty and its borders. To make matters more unstable,our elected officials sent thousands of AK-47s and assault rifles to Mexico. Our own citizens were killed with these weapons. The United Nations,made up of many foreign nations,stood idly by d oing nothing while a foreign nation invaded and occupied America replacing American workers in the workplace. To a point where,without jobs,millions ofA mericans lost their properties and destroyed the ability of the family to exist,putting our entire economy into complete collapse. Obama is promoting the same c riminal act against the American people. Obama wants to create another super magnetto completely destroy what is left of Americas ability to defend itself and border and our Constitution. As for the near future,the United Nations is wanting to push a small arms act,re-writing our Constitution. This is being promoted by Obama and many elected public officials,thus committing treason against the American people. The time is short. We must demand term limits for all public officials; put it into the Constitution in writing so there will be no mistake. An addition to the 22nd amendment. Billie E. Jewett SebringDo not be frightened and cover up lawlessnessEditor: This is a time in history when I believe all Americans are watching the greatest show on earthas it unfolds in Washington. Since World War II when my husband and childrens father,along with other members of the community were sent off to war,ve had my ear to the ground,so to speak. Im interested in seeing how our governmental issues over money will be resolved this time,if indeed, that happens. We have all watched the Republicans stonewall President Obama in prolonged offers of compromisewith the cliff hovering threateningly in the background. Did anyone ask why the stonewalling? It appears well within reason the Republicans are hog-tied so indebted to lobbyists,they dare not do contrary to the mobs orders. It i snt the NRA only. We need to understand members of both the Republicans and some Democrats are being gifted by pharmaceuticals,Food and DrugA dministration,corporations and a host of big businesses,all looking for a vote that will help to enhance their prefects. Its all about money. Who wants to kill the goose thatl ays the golden eggs? Many of our government officials and employees came to Washington to get rich. The gifts and perks from the lobbia by far has exceeded honest money.Think about the billions of dollars that became lost or stolen by the George W. administration. Halliburton construction still on the payroll. Our Medicare fraud,doctors, medicines and therapies,electric chairs,many kinds of expensive equipment ordered for patients that dont need them. It is easier to count Americans who are not on unnecessary drugs than those who are. Shortly after World War II, Russias Stalin,who headed their country,was quoted as saying, Give me one year and I can bring the Americans to their knees without firing one shot.He may have been right. The Constitution,as written, more than 200 years ago,is no doubt a remarkable document of antiquity. The faithful labor of men who were dedicated to Gods teaching of honesty and compassion for mankind and country,leaves us with sobering thoughts. While there is no doubt it was fitting exactly to the needs of the country and people 200 years ago,we today (I believe) have outgrown or grown out of the traits and decency of our founding fathers. For instance,how can we sit back and watch Congress take advantage of employment and at the same time steal from us,the personal use of government aircraft,make s neaky deals with lobbies to vote as the lobbyists say,for huge sums of money? Or how can we know what they are doing and yet allow them to work a lifetime,some having tob e helped in to work,due to old age or sickness. All government employees should have limited terms of employment. Where are the punitive measures t o apply at a time like this,when outsiders have taken over our government. Our President is openly insulted by Senators and Representatives. The Republicans have continued to accept their paychecks though they no longer take orders from the American people who pay them. We should not allow ourselves to be hobbled by the reverence for the Constitution. Adding several rules that take back the control of our country will not make the document of less value. Any changes in our Constitution would have to be made by ballot. Finally,I think many of us recall when R.J. Reynolds,Phillip Morris and other tobacco companies were adding chemicals in cigarettes to cause smokers to become more addicted. They eventually admitted the secret that made them multi-multi billionaires selling products they knew would cause death.

C M Y K By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING As the economy continues to dwindle,H ighlands County Sheriff's officials are reporting an increase in car burglaries. They say many of these incidents are crimes of opportu-n ity so they are urging residents to rememberand make certain they lock their vehicles. Highlands County S heriff's Office public information officer Nell Hayes said that many of the inci-d ents had occured in the north end of the county,but that there had been no specif-i c pattern or trend. She said thieves usually went car f ishing,meaning that theives gocheckingfor open doors in search of smallo bjects of high value such as GPS units,cell phones,iPods a nd the like. Other items many times left in vehicles include cash,credit cards and personal identification. They just open the vehic le doors and help themselves,Hayes said. T he burglariesgenerally come in clusters,taking place in residential neighbor-h oods often with multiple occurrences and victims in t he same night on the same streets. Theres seldom one incid ent its typically two or more in any given location. We had a case the other night where there were three car burglaries on one street,thena nother just one street over, she said. She said there generally was no vandalism and the thieves dont go to the efforto f removing radios or other equipment,but items do go missing. Sometimes they can tell there are things moveda round in the car,but nothing was taken,she said. Thats because they apparently didt find what they were looking for. S heriffs officials have released a list of things residents can do to keep from becoming a victim; Lock your car take your k eys. Statewide,statistics indicate that almost 25 percent of vehicles stolen inF lorida have the keys left in them. In addition,the vast majority of the car burglariesr eported in Highlands County have no sign of forced entry m eaning the vehicles were not locked at the time of the burglary. Do not make your vehicle a desirable target by leavi ng personal items such as purse,wallet,coins,CD player,etc.,in plain view in your vehicle. Take these items with you or store them in thet runk so that they are out of sight even when your car is p arked at your home Instead of carrying your Social Security card in yourw allet,it is recommended to keep it in a safe place at h ome,or in a safety deposit box. GPS devices,cell phones a nd iPods/Pads are some of the most popular items for thieves. If you have these items,do not leave them in the car when you park,eveni n your own driveway. Engraving an identifying number on the GPS unit,cell phone or computer will also make it easier to identify theu nit if it is stolen and subsequently recovered. Use a u nique number but not your Social Security or driver license number. Turn on the light in your driveway or car port.S tatistics indicate that more than 50 percent of vehicle thefts occur at night and thieves usually prefer to work in the cover of darkness. H ighlands County Sheriff Susan Benton reminds residents to always lock their vehicles and put valuables out of sight,even if they areo n their own property or plan to be gone just a few minutes. These crimes are occurr ing in residential neighborhoods. Please,take your valuables inside and locky our car,even in your own driveway. Dont let yourself b e a victim of crime!she said To assist deputies in solvi ng crimes and to prevent further occurrences,sheriff's o fficials urge residents to call Central Dispatch at 402-7200 to report any suspicious activity thatresidents observe in their respectiven eighborhoods.

The first phase of a trial scheduled to start Feb. 25 is designed to determine the causes of BPs blowout and assign percentages of fault to the companies involved in the Deepwater Horizon drilling project.

Also on Friday,Barbier gave his final approval to the portion of a class-action settlement that calls for BP to pay medical claims by cleanup workers and others who say they suffered illnesses from exposure to oil or chemicals used to disperse it. BP also agreed to spend $105 million over five years to set up a Gulf Coast health outreach program and pay for medical examinations. Last month,Barbier gave final approval to a separate but related economic settlement between BP and a team of lawyers for businesses and individuals who claim the spill cost them money. BP,which has estimated it will pay $7.8 billion to resolve both the economic and medical claims,said the settlements are historic resolutions that avoid years of lengthy litigation.

The hunt starts at 1 p.m. Saturday and ends at midnight Feb. 10. The Burmese python is an invasive species that experts say is decimating native wildlife in the Florida Everglades. Florida currently prohibits possession or sale of the pythons for use as pets. Federal law bans the importation and interstate sale of this species.

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE email@example.comSEBRING We came out on the right side of a rough one, Sebring head coach Princeton Harris saidw ith a beleaguered grin. Beleaguered because this was indeed a rough one, as the Blue Streaks survived a v ery physical and unrelenting Lake Gibson squad 696 6 in overtime Friday night. T he visiting Braves had a distinctive height advantage and made use of it in the first half, controlling the boards and giving themselves extra scoring opportunities. But the Streaks held their own with an early three from Terrell Williams and an inside score from Luke Ancrum. Williams would hit another jumper and Josh Austin overcame the height difference with hard-nosed hustle at the hoop for a follow, a baseline drive and a free throw to edge Sebring up 13-10 after one. But though Ezell Gammage scored inside to open the second and give the Streaks a 15-10 lead, Lake Gibson would answer back with a 12-0 run as their long-limbed defenders wreaked havoc in the passing lanes and lead to a number of breakaway scores. Down 22-15, Decaris Jones got a steal and score and Conner Cook canned a pair of free throws. But Joe Sheperd converted a three-point play and A.J. Brown scored on a drive to re-extend the lead to 27-19. Gammage would get a key rebound and putback ofa missed free throw, but Sheperd got a follow of his own for an answer. Sebring then made a run to close the gap again as Brion Jones split a pair at the line, Cook had a steal and score and Jones added a rebound and score to make it 29-26. Sheperd would score four straight and both squads missed a pair from the line before Jones continued his high-scoring quarter with a drive to take it to halftime with a 33-28 margin. The Braves got on the board first in the third, with Sheperd again working inside. But it was the Streaks board work that stepped up and started to make a difference. e got on them at halft ime and told them if we wanted to win we were going to need to box out and rebound better, Harris s aid. And thats what began to h appen as Austin scored i nside and Ancrum got consecutive putbacks to bring Sebring to within one at 3736. They then took the lead with a Cook free throw and Decaris Jones drive, though Lake Gibson evened it back up with a Torrean Hampton jumper. But Sebring was now working from an advantage and a new sense of physicality as Gammage flipped in a baby hook and made a power move at the hoop to sandwich Ryan Johnson free throw. Ancrum scored again in the paint to put Sebring up 45-39 before a Johnson three just before the buzzer cut it to 45-42 heading into the final eight minutes or so it seemed that there would be just eight more minutes. Thats because the Braves charged right back into it and kept it going back and forth through those eight minutes. Sebring would tie it on an Ancrum free throw, with Gibson getting the lead back with less than one minute left on a Hampton steal and jumper. The Streaks would miss a SPORTS B SE CTION Inside This Section S ebring Kayak Tours . . .3B Senior Softball starts . . .4B News-Sun Sunday, January 13, 2013 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Filemon Chavez flies upfield Thursday night toward the Wildcat goal, but visiting Hardee would get the best of the Blue Streaks. B y TAYLOR TUBBS News-Sun correspondent SEBRING The Hardee W ildcats were just able to tame the Streaks on their own home turf Thursday night for the boys soccer match. I n the exciting game at Firemens Field Hardee came a way with the win in a 3-2 v ictory over Sebring. Hardee is typically a pretty strong program, said head coach Keith Bowyer. We fought hard throughout the entire game. Hardee was first on the board when they scored at the 30minute mark. As the Wildcats approached the Sebring net, keeper Ethan Smith moved forward to block the attempt. The Wildcats were able to slip past Smith and, although he made a lunge back towards the net, he wasnt able to stop the shot in time. Soon after, Sebring had a number of offensive tries on the Wildcats goal. Brian Dixon had a charge on goal at the 26-minute mark that was scooped up by the Hardee keeper. Directly after, Eric Foster had a shot on goal that was stopped by a Wildcat defender. At the 24-minute mark, keeper Smith had a sliding save on the slippery field to recover the ball. The Wildcats took a corner kick at the 21-minute mark that sailed right in front of the goal, but Jared Lang was able to save the day by heading the ball out of Streak territory. Another Hardee offensive a ttempt was stopped by the defensive duo of Neil Wilson and Junior Chavez. In the twelfth minute of the f irst half, Dixon layed down the thunder on the cats with a n astonishing breakaway g oal to tie the game at 1-1. Sebring had another close goal attempt by Carl Dassinger at the 5minute mark. The ball skirted across the front of the goal but was a bit over-angled and went out of bounds on the right side. Going into the halftime break the score remained tied, which would pave the way for an interesting second half. Hardee came into the second half with a strike at goal, but Smith stopped the attempt in its tracks. The Wildcats were still able to slip in a goal at the 37-minute mark to send the score 2-1 in their favor. Riley Watson responded with a 50-yard drive up the field towards a cluster of three Hardee defenders. Watson was able to juke one of the defenders out and take a shot on goal, which the Wildcat keeper blocked. Hardee scored again at the 19-minute mark to put the Streaks in a two goal deficit to the Wildcats, at 3-1. In the final 10 minutes of the game, Watson took a penalty kick against the Wildcats slip past the Blue Streaks Hardee3Sebring2 Sebring69Lake Gibson66 See SOCCER, Page 3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE While it may have looked like the start of a whellbarrow race, Avon Parks Dylan Brown is in the midst of a move to get Sebrings Brandon Fuller to the mat Thursday night.

News-Sun staff reportSEBRING With the postseason chase toward state just beyond the horizon, but rapidly approaching, the wrestling season is getting to the point of locking in and clamping down. Those looking for a return to the state level of competition are refining their moves and readying for the challenges ahead, while those vying for an inaugural trip are just now getting to see the stakes rise toward what lay ahead. Thursdays dual meet between county rivals was the first time out in competition in a few weeks for both Avon Park and Sebring, and certainly got the juices flowing as the Devils edged the Streaks 37-34. I knew it was going to be real close, Avon Park head coach Blake Germaine said. Looking at the lineups, there was one double forfeit, and on other forfeit, but the rest of the weight classes were full on each side and it was going to come down to a couple of swing matches in there. That pivotal match came in the 126-pound class with both wrestlers having moved up. Normally wrestling at 113, Devil Dre Neely was bumped up two classes, while Nathan Franklin normally goes at 120. Neely shot out and was able to get a pair of points in both of the first two rounds and was holding steady as the third round was winding down. Franklin, however, made a move, reversed the flow and got Neely to the mat on his back. But while the three points he earned narrowed the gap, the clinching pin could not be gotten and Neely came away with the 4-3 win. This came after the match had been tied at 10-10 apiece and a forfeit in the 120pound class had given Jose Torres and Avon Park a win for a 16-10 lead. Neelys victory made it 1910 and consecutive pin wins in the next three matches, including one by former state qualifier Johnny Baldridge, blew the lead to an insurmountable 37-10, with four matches to go. The Devils had gotten out to the early lead with a Delroy Blake pin of Joshua Ladd and a majority decision by Dylan Brown.

Despite the Streaks strong attempts, Hardee was still able to walk away with a victory of 3-2 at the conclusion of the game. The game against Hardee gave the Streaks an opportunity to play a competitive match in a non-district game. Districts is looking good for us right now, said Bowyer.

Sebring got back into it with consecutive wins, as Louis Sanchez got a thirdperiod pin in the heavyweight class and freshman Brendan Doty got four points on a majority decision with a 14-3 win over Kenneth Egan in the 100-pound class. Sebring finished out the night with four straight pins of their own, including one by state-qualifier Chris DeJesus and by state hopeful Casey Ricker. But by then, the numbers just werent going to add up to make up for the difference. ere working really hard and the results are showing, Germaine said. Sebring was our biggest thing looking forward and they were really pumped to get this win. The Devils have one more dual meet, with Frostproof next week, before closing out the regular season at the big Spiegel Invitational in Sebring on Saturday, Jan 19, and the Polk County Invite one week later. And despite the loss, Sebring head coach JoshM iller was pleased with what he saw. s always fun to get the kids hyped up and aggressive, he said. They are friends (with the Avon Park wrestlers) so it can be hard to get them pumped up and ready for this match. In the past theyve been lethargic, but Im proud of what they came with tonight. For the Blue Streaks, this was their last dual meet with t ournaments dotting the rest of the regular season calendar. They were at the Palmet to Invitational Saturday, then join Avon Park at the Spiegel and Polk the next two Saturdays.

AP, Sebring head toward State chase chance to tie it again with a miss of the front end of a one-and-one, but with a scant five seconds remaining, the second half awakening on the glass paid off with Ancrum following a miss and scoring. The Braves then nearly p ulled off a miracle when Johnson let loose from three-quarter court just before the buzzer sounded and saw it hit the backboard and back of the rim and just miss going in. So on to the four extra minutes of overtime it went, with Austin opening it up with an inside score and Ancrum hitting two free throws after a Brown three to keep the Streaks up 6261. Free throws would be a bugaboo for the Braves down the stretch, as they went just 2-of-7. Sebring wasnt a whole lot better, going 4-of-8 in OTand just 15-of-37 for the game. But they got a big threepointer from Williams and a steal and score from Decaris Jones to seal the deal. That was a tough and physical game, but thats what we expect with all the teams in our district, Harriss aid. We executed when we n eeded to and got the victory. Well continue to work and keep getting better Sheperd took game-high honors with 19 points, while Hampton added 17 for Lake G ibson and Brown 13.

If youre planning to sell your home,you need to understand the tax implications of selling ah ome as well as be aware of structural and cosmetic flaws in your home and neighborhood that could undermine your asking price or keep the property languishing on the market for months. F irst,the tax tips: In general,if you make money on the s ale,you can exclude the gain from your taxable income (as outlined below) if youve owned and used the home as your residencef or two out of the past five years. You may be able to exclude up to $ 250,000 of the gain from your income ($500,000 on most joint returns If you can exclude all of the gain,you dont need to report the sale on your tax return. Gains that cannot be excluded are taxable. You must report them on Form 1040, S chedule D. You cannot deduct a loss from the sale of your main home. For more information,see IRS Publication 523,Selling Your Home (at w ww.irs.gov). Many factors can negatively impact your being able to attract buyers and ultimatelyg et the price you want. Sometimes theres not much you can do: If youre located on a busy street or the l ocal school district is subpar,you probably wont fetch as much as for the same house i n a better neighborhood. If your house is the only contemporary model in a sea of colonials or if your remodeled McMansion is surrounded by two bedroom/one bathroom cottages,many buyers might be turned off. Not everyone wants tos tand out from the crowd. If you started remodeling and didnt complete the job,many people wont want to take that on,even with a significant reduction in price. H owever,there are many relatively minor changes that may boost your homes marketability. For example: If your interior or exterior walls are painted with bold colors or textures,it mightb e worth toning it down with a more neutral palette. If you can afford it,have your home professionally staged,since they know how to maximize space and show off a homes strong points (while hiding its defects.i f youre using your own furnishings,thin them out. Mismatched appliances,cabinetry and plumbing fixtures stand out like sore thumbs. The same goes for worn floors orc arpeting. Discuss with your realtor which improvements might be worth the investm ent. Make sure your yard is well-tended and has at least basic landscaping. Overgrown weeds and abandoned junk dont help your curb appeal. The same principle applies forc ommon areas if you live in a condominium. If there are foreclosed homes in the neighb orhood,chances are they arent being wellmaintained. Make contacts with the lenders taking over these properties so you canr eport problems such as vandalism,trash or overgrown yards. If there unresponsive, a sk your citys building department whether they can charge fines or penalties. Also,work with your neighbors to keep an e ye on empty homes. Take turns mowing the lawn,picking up trash and removing graffiti. Anything you can do to bring up the quality o f the neighborhood will improve your chance of selling.

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunSEBRING Wes and Rachelle Siegrist are a husband and wife team who specialize in creating exquisitelyd etailed miniature paintings that are gems of fine art for enhancing existing collections,or for filling a display niche. The artists render theiri ntricate artwork in opaque watercolor. These tiny treasures typically measure less than nine square inches and appear even more detailedw hen viewed under magnification. Sebring holds a very spec ial place in the Siegrists' hearts as a home away from home. From 1989 until 1999t he Siegrists taught adult and c hildrens classes at the Highlands Museum of the Arts. In fact,it could be said that it was at the museum that the Siegrists career togetherb egan since Rachelle was one of Wesstudents there in 1989. Rachelle sat in on other classes Wes taught duringt heir time dating and helped as an instructor once they were married in 1990. The duo also served on the board of directors for the HighlandsA rt League during much of the 1990s,with Wes serving stints as the vice-presidenta nd then president for three years. At one point,they practically lived at the muse-u m with Wes teaching a variety of classes from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on one day of the week with full teaching schedules the rest of thew eek as well. Rachelle served as gallery m anager of the musuem for a time and both artists put in extra volunteer time pulling weeds in the landscaping, painting the interior wallsa nd agile Wes was often tapped to climb the ladder to c hange the light bulbs high in the stairway ceiling. Outside of the museum the Siegristsa lso regularly exhibited at shows,festivals and galleries i n the greater Sebring and Lake Placid area and continued to do so until they moved t o Tennessee in July 2001. Miniature art has been in existence for centuries,and the current revival in its popularity has given rise tom iniature art societies,which in turn have given the Siegrists a platform for international recognition among peers and collectors. Wes andR achelle Siegrist are members of The Society of A nimal Artists,the Miniature Art Society of Florida,the M iniature Artists of America, the Miniature Painters, Sculptors & Gravers Societyo f Washington,DC,and the Cider Painters of America. In a ddition,they are the authors of the worlds first standard definition of miniature art adopted by the Association of M iniature Artists. The Yellow House Gallery and Gift Shop is at 1989L akeview Drive. The Art League hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p .m. Tuesday to Friday,and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays.

Paul Emsles portrait of the former Kate Middleton shows the 31-year-oldr oyal against a dark background,her lips pursed into a wry smile,with an ethereal light against her face and hair. Her pale complexion brings out the fine lines under the eyes,and the light adds a hint of silver to her rich brownh air. Shortly after the portrait was u nveiled Friday at the National Portrait Gallery in London,critics began grousing. Im really sad to say this is a rotten portrait,Daily Mail art critic Robin S imon said. Guardian arts writer Charlotte Higgins said that Kates mouth looked clenched,her eyes looked dead,and that the whole thing had sepulchral gloomabout it. Kate Middleton is whatever you think of the monarchy and all its inane surrounding pomp a pretty young woman with an infectious smile,a cascade of chestnut hair and a healthyb loom,she wrote in a post to her newspapers website. So how is it that she has been transformed into something unpleasant from the Twilight franchise? Emsley told reporters at the opening t hat it was always going to be tough painting Kate,who sat for the portrait l ast year,before she became pregnant. A person whose image is so pervasive,for an artist it is really difficult tog o beyond that and find something which is original,he said. You have t o rely on your technique and your artistic instincts to do that and I hope ve succeeded. Royal portraits tend to veer between the staid and the controversial. Lucian Freuds 2001 portrait of QueenE lizabeth II remains a particularly notorious example,with some describing the heavy,severe painting of the monarch as deeply unflattering and others calling it groundbreaking. I n fairness to Emsley,some artists had praise for his work. I liked it,very much so,said Richard Stone,who has frequently painted members of the royal family. So often with official portraits theyc an be rather stiff and starchy,but this has a lovely informality about it,and a w armth to it. In any case,Emsley appeared to have won over his most importanta udience. Kate,who was with her husband,Prince William,at the gallery e arlier Friday,called the portrait just amazing.William liked it too,saying it was absolutely beautiful. Critics divided over Duchess of Cambridge portrait
C M Y K W hat do frogs do with paper? Rip-it! What kind of shoes do frogs wear? O pen toad! What does a frog say when it sees something great? Toadlyawesome! Since ancient times,frogs h ave often been a source of fascination for young and old alike. They are the mysterious creatures in which fairy tales and folklore are madeo f.Not only do frogs serve as spellbinding,enchanting and mesmerizing subject matter in tales of old,they are very important links in the food chain as well as being impor-t ant indicators of ecosystems. F rogs are equipped with absorbent skin that can easily soak up toxic chemicals,w hich makes them extremely vulnerable to environmental d isturbances. Therefore, frogs are given credit to indicate the health of the ecosystem they live in. Unfortunately,frog popula-t ions have been declining worldwide at an alarming r ate.Frogs and other amphibian populations are faced with many challengesi n todays world,which include habitat loss,pollut ion,climate change,infectious diseases and exotic species. I n Florida,one of the main dangers to the native frogs is their own r elatives.Osteopilusseptentrionalis,or the Cuban tree f rog,may be causing more harm to these big-eyed natives than all other factors put together. These invaders come from the Caribbeanr egion,specifically Cuba, Bahamas and the Cayman Islands,and are now the largest tree frog on the continent. They have a voracious appetite and have the ability to thrive most anywhere ino ur tropical climate. They range in size from three to f ive-and-a-half inches in length. These frogs are cons idered invasive species because they are causing a tremendous amount of harm to our natural ecosystems. According to the U niversity of Floridas Department of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation, Cuban tree frogs eat at least five differ-e nt species of native frogs. Because of their larges ize,they also dine on native lizards, snakes, bird hatch-l ings and tadpoles. I n addition to actually consuming their relatives,these frogs take ups pace and eat the food that the natives need to survive. T hese exotic frogs breed year round and the female usually lays about 3,000 eggs in two long stings in shallow water. Once the eggs hatch,t hey remain in the tadpole stage for about one or two m onths. Once they turn into frogs,they live anywhere from five to 10 years.Theyv ary in color from grayishwhite to greenish-brown. T heir toe pads are larger than other tree frogs. They have bright yellow patches hiddeno n the underside of the legs. Often they have an orange tint to their eyes. They have s ome interesting features including the skin on their h eads,which is fused to the skull and does not move when rubbed. When handled, these creatures secrete a toxic fluid that can causeb urning to the eyes,nose and skin. Cuban tree frogs thrive in urban communities. They are extremely adaptable and are commonly found near or even in residences. They con-t inue to spread with rapid speed. Some of the problems t hey cause humans include defecating on walls and windows,taking over birdhouses,clogging up toilets and sinks,laying eggs in fishp onds and bird baths and short-circuiting utility switches. (UFIFAS) Cuban tree frogs are mainly nocturnal and usuallys leep above ground during the day.At night,they go out foraging for food and use natural and artificial light to aid them in the hunt. They are excellent climbers and will eat anything and everything they can get into their l arge mouths. They can survive most anywhere includi ng brackish water and have been known to set up colonies on islands. Theyh itchhike to new locations via shipments of plants,vege tables,packaging,boats and any type of motorized vehicles.Frog facts:When a frog swallows food,its bulging eyes close and sinks into its head.The eyeballs apply pressure and push the frogs meal down itst hroat. Humans get warts from human viruses,not from frogs and toads. Frogs usually have s mooth skin and toads have rougher skin. A group of frogs is called an army; a group of toads isc alled a knot. Most frogs require suita ble habitat in both terrestrial and aquatic environments. Tadpoles keep waterways clean by feeding on algae. Adult frogs eat large quanti-t ies of insects,including disease vectors that can transmit f atal illnesses to humans. Frogs produce a wide array of skin secretions,m any of which have significant potential to improve human health through their u se as pharmaceuticals. Many Australian aborigi ne and NativeAmerican groups believed that frogs brought rain. In Japan,frogs symbolize good luck.

C M Y K Dear Abby: My h usband and I just got back from visiting myd ad and stepmother in another state. We are the only ones in the family who dont live in close proximity,and we get to see him only once a year. Dad is elderly,and I know my time with him is limited. Apparently,his marriage is in a shambles and they are on the verge of divorce. He comes home only to sleep. The rest of the time he finds places to get away from her and her constant arguments. The time we were there was tense,unpleasant and, frankly,a waste of time and money. I wasnt able to spend more than five minutes with Daddy without my stepmother trying to pick a fight with him. My husband and I decided it was best to make excuses and fly home early. Now I dont know how I can see my father without my stepmother. Because he didnt tell me his marriage was on the rocks (I was told by my siblings),Im not sure how to broach the subject of making alternate arrangements to meet him so we can talk and spend time together without all the drama. My husband thinks it may cause more problems with his wife,but I dont know how else to avoid being in a war zone. Have you any suggestions or advice? I just want to spend time with him in the time he has left. Daddys Girl Down South Dear Daddys Girl: Now that you have been in the ar zone,the cat is out oft he bag. Because your stepmother was such a distraction you had no quality time with your father,consider staying elsewhere and hav-i ng him spend time with you away from the house. Alternatively,if hes able to travel,offer to send him a ticket to visit you and your husband for a few days or a week without her. Thats cheaper than plane fare for you and your husband to visit him. Contact your siblings and find out if your father plans to spend the rest of his limitedtime married to your stepmother,because the stress of the hostility in their household could shorten his life. If he plans to divorce her,one of the places where he should seek refuge is his lawyers office. And because your father hasnt been forthcoming,be sure to ask your siblings to keep you more fully informed about the status of his health and his marriage. As his daughter,you have a right to know. Dear Abby: My fiancee, ara,has a problem with social boundaries. She was home-schooled most of her education and missed out ona social life. Recently,a male friend of mine quit talking to both of us because of her behavior. When I talked with him about it,he said Tara makes him uncomfortable. She doesnt understand where friendly joking stops and serious flirting starts. She gave him the impression she wanted to start an affair,so he walked away. Tara has been open and upfront about everything. She doesnt lie. Its like she doesnt know any other way to interact with the opposites ex,and its spooking me before our wedding. I dont want to have to be my fiancees constant social monitor. W hat can I do to help her with this? Are there social classes for late bloomers? Freaked-Out Fiance in Ohio Dear Freaked-Out Fiance: I dont blame you for being freaked out because Tarasbehavior must have been blatant for your friend to avoid both of you. My advice is to put your wedding on hold until you,a female relative (or two) whom Tara respects and will listen to,or a counselor is able to make her understand the boundaries of socially appropriate behavior. If you proceed as things are,the next letter I receive from you may be from Freaked-Out Husband.

Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. By DAVID BAUDER AP Television WriterPASADENA,Calif. If the creators of ABCs The Middlehave their way,p oor Sue Hecks teeth will never be fixed. Actress Eden Sher wore a set of removable braces to her audition to play the daughter on the ABC comedy,helping her win the job. She hasnt taken them off since,at least on camera. There the signature of the geeky,lovable loser that is high school soph Sue Heck. It makes for a strange situation for Sher when she goes out in public. I dont ever get recognized by anyone,said the 21-year-old Sher,who in real life has straight teeth, clear skin and a youthful touch of Hollywood glamour. I dont get offended by it. I take it as a compliment. Getting ready for filming is particularly easy. Sher doesnt wash her hair on filming day so it can be flat and oily on the air. She barely wears any makeup. And shes not allowed to w ax her eyebrows. Sher has had the removable braces since a short stint on Weeds.She had braces in real life but hadt hem taken off in the midst of a seasons filming. Wanting continuity,the show had her orthodontist prepare a set of braces that can be taken on and off. Its a signature look she wouldnt mind losing at some point. I would love to see Sue get her braces off at some point,she said recently. The writers have stopped taking my calls on this. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, January 13, 2013Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; movie listings p/u; 00026464 STANLEY STEEMER CARPET; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 1/13/13; 00026643 DIVERSIONS EDITORIALIZATIONB y GAIL GRABOWSKI A CROSS 1 PRIMARY 5 LAYS AN EGG 10 PART OF A POT 1 4 ON THE LEVEL 19 START OF AN AFTERT HOUGHT 20 OUT OF WHACK 2 1 AGREEMENT 22 HOT 2 3 SNOW-LADEN SPRUCE? 25 NOBLE IN A HE-MAN CONTEST? 2 7 THROW WITH EFFORT 28 INTRODUCTORY C OURSE 30 SANDBAGS MAY BE U SED FOR THEM 31 13 1/2-INCH-TALL HONORS 33 PEOPLE OFTEN SEE PATTERNS IN THEM 35 SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY CITY 39 CURVED SHAPES 42 BEETHOVENS THIRD 45 SEVEN-EMMY ACTOR 46 BIBLICAL TRIO 49 AGHAST RUNWAY FIGU RE? 52 REVEAL, IN VERSE 53 ETCHERS SUPPLY 5 4 POWDER MINERAL 5 5 WAGNER HEROINE 5 6 ILL-GOTTEN GAINS 5 7 JUSTICE DEPT.

Oh,a chipmunks been in there and we were warned that keep-i ng the hood down keeps them cozy and thell begin chewing on the wires. In Colorado,we delight in seeing these little chip-m unks on hikes,walks near the river,or rocky b ackyards.These cute as a buttoncritters make us smile. B ut,when you take one home with you,it can be p roblematic. Such was the case when our son and his wife visited us at our friendshome and kept their car parkedf or the weekend in the driveway. For whatever r eason,the chipmunk hitched a ride to Aspen with them. T he discovery came when his droppings were f irst found on the front seat and later all over the floor boards and under thes eats along with a liquid accidenton the back tarp. Not to mention the sounds o f him somewhere in the car as they drove along. A thorough cleaning and vacuuming didnt send him scurrying at first.Thankfully,this uninvited guest eventuallyf ound his way out of the car to a new adventure. It made me realize I wanted the souvenirsof our experiences and blessings to hitch a ride on my heart back to Sebring. My senses are heightened in the atmosphere of the mountains. Itsl ike I cant get enough. But,the joy of helping our children get settled in their newh ome fulfilled us even more. Working,packing, moving,arranging,sharing meals and ideas together gave us a sense of belong-i ng and family bonding that will always reside in o ur hearts. Yet the spiritual growth through conversations,p rayer,Bible study and transparency with one a nother lit a spark that I want to be fertile ground for more growth and new life in us. We have been blessed to h ave heard the Word of God at our parentsknees a s children and,to grow as adults. Still,growth must continue. I n 2 Timothy 3:14 were reminded of this,where it s ays,But you must continue in the things which you have learned and inc hapter 2,verse 15,it says, Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed,rightly d ividing the word of truth.

Taking special moments home P ause And C onsider Jan Merop Daughter visiting elderly dad seeks sanctuary from strife Dear Abby By E.J. TAMARA A ssociated PressLOS ANGELES Relatives of four passen-g ers killed last month with Jenni Rivera in a plane crash in Mexico filed a lawsuit against Riveras company Thursday alleging the singer was negligent when she hired a faulty Learjet 25. The civil lawsuit filed in a Los Angeles court seeks unspecified financial compensation from Jenni Rivera Enterprises. It claims Rivera picked the aircraft owned by Las Vegas-based Starwood Management and should have known the state of the plane and the pilots status. There are a lot of doubts about why Jenni Rivera chose that aerial clunker,said attorney Vance Owen,of Kiel & Larson,who represents the plaintiffs. Rivers publicist, Arturo Rivera,her makeup artist,Jacob Yebale, her stylist,Jorge Sanchez,her lawyer, Mario Macias,and the two pilots were among the seven people killed when the aircraft crashed Dec. 9 in northern Mexico. Authorities have not determined what caused the plane to plunge, killing all onboard. Jenni Rivera Enterprises collects royalties and copyright payments for Rivera,43,and it manages the singers other businesses and assets.

C M Y K BYST ACEYHO LLENBECKMcClatchy-Tribunehe Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. made his mark on history during the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 1960s. Motivated by his faith,K ing fought against the oppression of his fellow African Americans by protesting segregation. His efforts to combat the injustices were met with hostility and hatred,and eventually led to his early death. But Kings drive to achieve harmony among the races led to the desegregation of the country and set America on the path toward racial equality. HISTORY OF THE DAYIn 1986,nearly 18 years after his assassination,Americans celebrated the first Martin L uther King Day,a holiday established to pay homage to the preacher and inspirational leader. By this time,17 states already had established holidays to honor Martin Luther King Jr. Coretta Scott King,his widow,worked hard to make the national holiday a reality. In 2003,the theme of Martin Luther King D ay became,Remember! Celebrate! Act! A day on,not a day off.Although some professionals and students see the third Monday in January as a day off from work or school,others see it as an opportunity to volunteer their time. By working to improve their communities and help those in need,these Americans are acting on behalf of Kings generous spirit. A STREET NAMED KINGAccording to Derek H. Alderman,author of the essay Naming Streets for Martin Luther King,Jr.:No Easy Roadpublished in Landscape and Race in the United States (Routledge,$34.95),there were more that 730 s treets in U.S. cities and towns named after Martin Luther King Jr. as of 2003. Most of these exist in the southeast United States. Georgia,where King was born,leads the states in streets named after him with 105. States without a street named after King include Montana,North Dakota,South Dakota, Nebraska,Maine,New Hampshire and Vermont.FAMOUS QUOTESThrough his eloquent speeches,sermons and writings,Martin Luther King Jr. inspired a nation. Here are a few of his most memorable and moving quotations: Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Letter from Birmingham Jail, April 16,1963 I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: e hold these truths to be self-evident,that all men are created equal. Kings I Have a Dreamspeech, Aug. 28,1963 I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. This is why right,temporarily defeated,is stronger than evil triumphant. Kings Nobel Prize acceptance speech, Dec. 10,1964 Like anybody,I would like to live a long life longevity has its place. But Im not concerned about that now. I just want to do Gods will. And hes allowed me to go up to the mountain. And Ive looked over,and Ive seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight,that we,as a people,will get to the Promised Land. Kingve Been to The Mountaintop speech,April 3,1968REMEMBER! CELEBRATE!
