Auntie Mameis a laugh aloud play with a large cast of zany characters from a teacher who advocates free love to a Lithuanian Bishop. The plot is simple. Patrick Dennis becomes an orphan and goes to live with his aunt,an irrepressible woman in love with life. Two conflicts complicate Mame and Patricks lives the Great Depression and bankruptcy,and trustees put in place by Patricks father to ensure his son received a staid,button-downed,conventional education. As Patrick grows,the pull between freedom and playing by the rules becomes a real problem,especially after he falls in love with a girl from an extremely conservative family. Tammie Pollard is wonderful as Mame, whom she describes as ... eccentric,crazy intelligent,sophisticated and deeply loving and protecting of her nephew. s a lot of fun,Pollard added. When she rips into people,sometimes she lets them know it,sometimes shes subtle and they dont even get it. Pollard said the play has special meaning for her. Auntie Mamewas the first HLT production 30 years ago. Her close friend and mentor,the late Janelou Buck,former NewsSun editor,played Mame then. One more connection,Pollard said,a role we got to share. Pete Pollard,Tammies husband,directed B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comS EBRING It was a good clean shot,one shot to the head,Calvin Turner said. I used a 12-gauge shotgun and no. 4 steelh eads,like you do duck with. I shot him under the jaw; it left the top of the head intact in one piece. Luck was in my favor. If I were as lucky with the lottery,Id be enjoying it. T urner is talking about an 11-foot python he killed in t he Everglades Sunday. Turner,and his friend and fellow hunter,Chris Henry,entered the Python Challenge 2013,sponsoredb y the Florida Wildlife Commission. From now until midnight on Feb. 10, the commission,with the help of several private foun-d ations and public agencies,is holding a python hunt and kill program. Hunting opened Saturday. Two cash prizes are at stake $1,000 for the largest snake killed; $1,500 for the most. The challenge is not about sport. Its not too much to say t he balance of nature is seriously threatened in the Everglades. The challenge is to remove the intrusive pythons,which have no nat-u ral enemies there and threaten local mammals, reptiles and birds. Turner entered the challenge unconvinced thatp ythons were a menace. He changed his mind during h is first two days hunting. His GPS tracking 229m iles. It was eerie,Turner said. We didnt see hide nor hair of small animals. No field rats,no raccoons,n o rabbits,no alligators under five feet. Didnt see any wading birds. That was the strange part of the deal, there was nothing moving.I t was funny,no mammals on the levy at the area where I was. There not there. Theres nothing to see. Turner and Henry did not see any snakes Saturday. It wasnt until Sunday afternoon that they encountered their catch. Turner walked up to the top of the levy with a pair of binoculars to scout the area. Looking down where the levys berm met the water,he saw a python sunning itself in an area of saw grass and cattails. His first thought was that it was so big he needed a gun to kill it. His second thought was that his 12gauge shotgun was back on his air boat. He ran to the boat,got his gun and ran back to the snake,afraid it would have disappeared. It hadnt,however,which turned out to be its final mistake. Back up to the top of the levy,Turner took aim and killed the male Burmese python with a single shot. He and Henry pulled the body up to the Courtesy photo The 11-foot python that Calvin Turner (above left Lake Placid, killed in the Everglades on Sunday.

He currently lives in Lake Placid. W ith the market depressed, he told the city council,he has not been able to sell hish ome in Lake Placid. His request upset C ouncilor Garrett Anderson. Why couldnt you move,he asked Deleon. Why is it ourp roblem? Rules are rules. He said he would not vote an extension. T he rest of the council spoke strongly in support of D eleon partly because members feel he is critical to the towns progress,and partly because of the sluggish real estate market. J im Barnard,who ran for the council in 2012,said he knew Deleon had lowered the price on his home $20,000 in an effort to move the process along. He added that it would be hard for Deleon to replacew hat he has a house on Lake June with six bedrooms, o n about two acres. Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray said,He has done the best Ive seen in 12 years. An extension is called for. C ouncilor Parke Sutherland took the argument to the philosophical level. I am not in support of any geographical limits (for any-o ne),he said. We need the best people for the job. I do not think setting limits benefits the city. Sutherland made a motion to delete the city limit home requirement from Deleons contract completely,rather than simply extend the deadCity deletes clause in Deleons contract See DELEON,page 7A I nside Search is onA PHS again h unts for coach 2A

C M Y K B y BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Fans at Americas oldest sports car endurance race are used tos pectacular displays from the Goodyear blimp to the cannonade of fireworks that signals the end of the oncearound-the-clock classic. This year,a new display is slated to be up and ready fort he 61st running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring. C onceptualized and executed by Sebring artist James R. Hahn,it is slated to be a 312foot mural commissioned by the Italian internationalm osaics company,The Trend Group. Hahn is best known locally for his recently-completed mural honoring SebringsC entennial while Trend does work worldwide,with subsidiaries innumerous countries. Trend Group iswell knownfor their design collaborations with famous names like Gucci,Kusama, and others. Area residents may be familiar with one of the Trend Groups local subsidiaries,E-Stone Manufacturing. The folks at E-Stone were pivotal in helping the project come together as a whole, Hahn said. He titled the mural Trend at the Track.It will adorn a10-by-312-foot,threes ided,smooth concrete wall facing the raceway. Materials f rom E-stone will be utilized in the mural. The rendering willdepict checkered flags with the Trend logo book-ending twor acing scenes. Oneside depictsa day race,while the other is at night paying homage to the two sides of the Sebring classic. There are cars swerving on a track in front of cheering fans and a Floridian backdrop of palms,sun and moon, Hahn said. The design features amalgams from my own photos,different models and interpretive sections of cars but no specific branding so the design becomes more a homage to racing and the mosaic artform,than a spotlight to one company or another. The mural deal was struck last month withTrend Group executivesflying infrom their business center in Vicenza Italy to review and a pprove Hahn's design. During the meeting,Hahn unfurled his mural rendering that was printed out andproved tobe aslong ast he table itself. Everyone at the table was smiling,so I knew we were, excuse the pun,on the right track,Hahn said. Since that time,Hahn has been working with Trendsm osaic designers in south Florida to finalize the artw orkthat will be transformedonto large panels to createthe race scenes he created. The project is slated for c ompletion in March,just in time for the 61st running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring. Hahns plans areto use m aterial provided through EStone came due to concerns about the weather here,especially the sometimes brutal Florida sun. This muralwill bedone in durable glass and agglomerate that is made for exterior exposure:pools,monuments, walls,fountains,etc. Trend is known for creating some of the highest quality mosaics in the industry,he said. Over the past year and a half,Hahn has been busy creating projects from hisSebring gallery. He also gatheredadditional attention painting live at last years 12 H ours and showing his artwork in special private events to avid art lovers and collectors. In addition tolast y earsCentennial Mural rendering,Hahns better-known artwork includes paintings commissionedand exhibited by the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg as well ashuge murals for thew orlds most successful tequila maker Patron Spirits. T he Trend Groups work spans the globe,including projects atthe Golden Buddha temples,the tallest building in Saudi Arabia ando ther major important jobs. Additional work by James R.

We had some general conversations after the season and took some time for reflection,Avon Park Principal Tealy Williamss aid. After we got back from break he offered his resignation. He did a great job in starting to turn the program around in many regards,buti n the end,we just realized it wasnt the right fit for e ither side. And so the search is on again,this time with thei nitial look being closer to home. Last year we did a nationwide search and went through about 40 applicants,Williams said. Now were starting ours earch in house,well give our own guys a look first a nd see where we go from there. If nothing hits here, t hen well expand out to look around the county. Our focus early on is to look around here and see what we have,he contin-u ed.

And though there is some t ime to play with,the spring practice season is on the horizon and getting someone in place soon is the priority.

By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING For the past 65 years,Glorious Community Church of Jesus of the Apostolic Faith has been serving the residents of Sebring. The church,which began as a four-bedroom house has grown into a neighborhood place of worship that currently accommodates 150 people comfortably. With a vision to complete Gods work,Pastor Lenavol Blackstock and his wife, Euda,transformed the church to what it is today.Though they had their share of hurdles along the way,with the help of their small congregation,the pastor has continued to provide service to his people. Twenty years ago in the wake of one of the biggest hurricanes to ever touch Highlands County (Andrew), GCC was nearly torn to pieces due to the storms damage. The grandiose winds caused water damages to the church ceiling that patches can no longer seal. Pieces of sheet rock are now detached from the ceiling. Nothing but faith and God is keeping our ceiling up,member Alfonso James said. Through the trials,the years have rolled on quickly and without fail for the pastor and members at GCC. The congregation is excited about the future of the church,rarely ever looking back. Many plans for GCC are under way and the church is in full force re-vamp mode. Last Sunday marked the beginning of GCCs year long fund raising kick off. The members of Glorious Community have come up with creative ways to raise additional funds and are making strides to get the wheels in motion. Though Blackstock is excited about the fundraising efforts and upcoming plans, he somewhat worries that the efforts will allocate the funds necessary to complete the planned expansion. Being that the state of the church is so far gone,he (Blackstockyond the limits of his hands in hopes of reaching yours. Any donation large or small will help this pastor of 38 years obtain his vision of servicing the community in a building that will accommodate and provide a safe refuge,James said. Even in the churchs current state,the pastor and helpful congregation remain concerned more about the community than about themselves. A number of different services are constantly provided to members of the community,services that are greatly needed,according to Blackstock. The list of services include:prison ministry,hospital ministry,nursing home ministry,sick and shut in as well as a growing youth ministry. GCC hopes to be able to continue serving the needy of the community while moving forward with the re-modeling and expansion of their beloved sanctuary. GCC invites guests and visitors to their weekly services and church. Anyone interested in giving a cash donation to the church to assist the re-construction and expansion efforts may send those donations to P.O. Box 1792, Sebring,FL 33870.

Center Ave. has yet to come tumbling down as prop-e rty owner Gingerlee Mitchelllindo inadvertently bought herself a little more time with her ongoing fight with the city of Sebring. T he retaining wall surrounding Mitchelllindos property was initially scheduled to be demolished during the Highlands County SchoolD istricts winter break; the city had hoped to have the project completed by Jan. 7. C ity Administrator Scott Noethlich stated multiple times that the city hadi nstructed the demolition and engineering team,Excavation P oint,to complete the project while school was out in order to avoid any transportationp roblems or issues. Excavation Point got a bit o f a scare on Jan. 2 when Mitchelllindo verbally threate ned the workers,according to City Attorney Bob Swaine. The contractor showed up to do the work; she threatened to sue him if theyt ouched her wall,Swaine stated. Mitchelllindo openly stated that she did in fact speak to the contractor,informingh im that she has an ongoing civil suit with the city (as well as the county) and that it was an issue that they did not want to get involvedw ith. I told them if they did (get involved) that I would justa dd their name to the suit. I told them that I would sue ... Im not going to physicallyd o anything,but I will sue anybody who touches my w all,Mitchelllindo said. The tactic worked,obviously; the contractor has yett o return to Mitchelllindos property though a few other e ntities have been there. According to Mitchelllindo,a u tilities company and a water company have both been by checking water lines and such on and around the property. T he citys plan to have the wall demolished before school started back up is obviously a past memory at this point; the next step is toe nsure the comfort of the workers contracted to do the job. He (contractoranted a little extra comfort. Hesn ever gone to a site and been threatened to be sued if he touched the property,S waine said. The indemnification in a contract provides the con-t ractor with ease and directions by which they must foll ow to complete the job. The contract was presented before the Sebring Council Tuesdaye vening for approval. No new date had been set f or the wall demolition at the time of press.

C M Y K W e,on the other hand,not only t hink our coverage is warranted, we think the community should be p aying attention,even getting i nvolved. To briefly recap: M itchelllindos property,a small s ingle house,is opposite the Sebring Middle School at 503 C enter Ave. In 2009,with the construction of Sebring Parkway Part II,C enter Avenue was reconfigured and widened for a safer entrance i nto the middle school and to feed i nto the Parkway. Properties along the affected a reas were surveyed. A s a result of the survey,the city judged Mitchelllindos retaini ng wall encroached on the citys r ight-of-way by about a foot. H owever,when succeeding surveys were done,none of the r esults were exactly the same. M itchelllindo insists when she b uilt the wall in 1996,she stayed w ithin the line set by the surveyor, who happened to be Buddy W hitlock. Whitlock went on to sit o n the city council and took part in the controversy. He is on record v oting on the issue. People who have complained a bout the wall to the News-Sun r efer to the walls appearance,not safety issues. I n 2012 the city won a legal f ight to demolish the wall,and Mitchelllindo was denied an i njunction against it. Once the last p recautionary paperwork to protect the construction company d oing the work is completed, M itchelllindos wall will come d own. I t was supposed to have been t orn down during the schools winter break. It is not known at t his time when the work is r escheduled. Our reasons for supporting M itchelllindo include:1) questions regarding the surveys; 2) q uestions regarding the actual m otives for removing the wall being ugly in some eyes is no reas on for government to trespass on a citizens property,making demands; and 3) removing the r etaining wall takes away Mitchelllindos security. T here are other,more important issues involved. We admire M itchelllindos single-handed fight for just process against t remendous odds. It isnt often a c itizen stands up to a government. It takes money,persistence,a t hick skin,courage and a lot of research to stand up on your own. M itchelllindo told the NewsS un she is on her own because local lawyers refused to take on her case. The only lawyers who d id express an interest,she said, work out of Miami and are proh ibitively expense. Mitchelllindo s aid the reason she did not get the injunction was because she had m ade a mistake in the paperwork. We wonder why the city,in t hese tough times,continues to spend thousands of dollars in its f ixation to tear down a retaining wall. The News-Sun doesnt yet h ave the latest figures,but by 2 011 the city had spent $22,325 in legal fees. What a waste of money. W hat a waste of Mitchelllindos t ime,City Attorney Mike Swains t ime,and the city councils time. W orse,what arrogance of power. T o paraphrase President Ronald R eagan,Sebring,dont tear that wall.

Thism eant viewing all 24 episodes in a three-day period,watching several a second time,digging up print reviews and features Ih ad ignored over the past two years plus a few m ore obsessive gambits, such as searching for theI sraeli series on which the Showtime hit is based. This type of famine or feast approach to media is not new for me,but itsp robably not what the producers have in mind. I do find that more and more people are either fully into things these days,or com-p letely out of them. We have so many entertainment options,yet few of us enjoy sampling; we latch on to something we like at the media buffet and then gorge. At least Homelandreferences now make sense, most notably the Saturday Night Livsketch I went back and watched online. Turns out Bill Haders Sauland Anne Hathaways Carriewere among the funniest sendups SNL has ever done. Whats that? Youve never watched Homeland? The way I figure it that places you among roughly 300 million Americans. Homelandis a thriller about the CIAs post-9/11 efforts to wipe out Al Qaeda,featuring almost as many plot twists as,well, the real CIA. Its one of televisions biggest hits, but unlike,say,American Idol,which has been sampled at one time or another by virtually everyone who owns a TV,Homeland has been seen by a tiny fraction of the U.S. audience. Roughly 2 million people watched the second seasons finale a few weeks ago. By comparison,over 30 million tuned in the Cowboys-Redskins game on NBC two weeks later. Still,when it comes to the zeitgeist,Homelandis right up there with the NFL. President Obama told People Magazine that Homelandis one of his favorite shows,and the Clintons are also said to be b ig fans. Last March,the program's male lead, D amian Lewis,was invited to the White House for a chat with Mr. Obama about w here the plot might lead. I missed the Homeland debut in 2011,and found myself trapped. I was afraid to join the series inm id-story,so I managed to avoid it altogether. But this Christmas I received the first season on DVD,and my son Danny and I w ho together once watched all 154 episodes of NBCs The West Wing,three times from start to finish,a fter the series was no longer on the air polished off the first 12 Homelandshows in less than 48 hours. L ocating the second season was tougher. I preordered the DVDs on Amazon.com and then realized I had no ideaw hen thed be released. I signed up for a one-month trial of Netflix,only to find out it doesnt offer Homeland.Fortunately, theres an app called Showtime Anytime,which I downloaded to my iPad, and then rushed to the Apple store for a cable that would let me watch iPad video on a full-size TV. Ah,but it seems Showtime wont allow that. While the show played perfectly on the iPad,a printed notice on the TV screen said I was out of luck. Still,we watched episodes 13 through 24 on the small device in a day-and-a-half. That done,I began Googling the Israeli series, Hatufim,(Abductees and learned that it exists on DVD with English subtitles but to watch it Id have to buy a machine that accommodates the TV format called PAL,used widely outside the U.S. ... Anyway,I rushed into the New Year fully prepped to discuss Homeland, only to find that those who have seen it are already talked-out,and the other 300 million couldnt care less. It seems the buzz has shifted. I hear that two seasons of Downton Abbe are available on DVD. Peter Funt is a writer and speaker and can be reached at www.CandidCamera.com Peter Funt.

The United States is the only country in the world where police routinely wear bulletproof vests. In a recent letter,someone defined the militiaas every man over 17 with a gun. Why do our police need so much protection from our own militia? Why are our politicians so afraid of the National Rifle Association,the NRA? Lets look at the 2012 U.S. Senate race. In Maine,the NRA endorsed Republican Charlie Summers,who was defeated by Angus King,an Independent. In Missouri,the NRA endorsed Republican Todd Akin,who was defeated by Democrat Claire McCaskill. In the gun-friendly state of Virginia,the NRA endorsed Republican George Allen,who was defeated by Democrat Timothy Kaine. In Wisconsin,the NRA endorsed Republican Tommy Thompson,who was defeated by Democrat Tammy Baldwin. In Ohio,the NRA endorsed Republican Josh Mandel,who was defeated by Democrat Sherrod Brown. Then theres Florida, where the NRA endorsed Republican Connie Mack, who was defeated by Senator Bill Nelson. According to mediamatters.org,the NRA spent almost $18 million on the 2012 election. Does this money come from members dues and selling hats and bumper stickers? Much of it comes from the arms industry. The San Antonio Express-News estimates that gun and ammunition manufacturers have given between $22 million and $63 million to the NRA since 2005. The NRA had worked closely with ALEC,the American Legislative Exchange Council. ALECs Public Safety Task Force worked at getting more states to adopt laws like Floridas Stand Your Ground law. In April,ALEC disbanded the Task Force,after the Trayvon Martin killing. The reaction from the public was simply too negative. Mediamatters.org quite accurately calls Stand Your Ground a Kill at Willlaw. The NRA is proud of its role in teaching the public to use firearms. Last summer the NRA lost a court case in Michigan and had to pay out $75,000,we learn,from a Brady Center newsletter. A NRA firearms instructor, Thomas Simpson,accidentally shot a person taking the class,Terry Gonser,in the face,causing serious injury. Dale L. Gillis SebringAviation Expo continues to improveEditor: Well it looks like someone in the know reads some of the articles that I write and the paper prints. I got hold of a copy of the Sports Aviation Expo program for the show at Hendricks Field this Thursday through Sunday and the first thing I noted was that there will be no fee charged for parking your car! Thats $5 saved right off. I wrote years ago scoring the show for charging a fee for parking on ground that we were paying tax money to buy and maintain. Happy Day. The program show is a full day of activity for all four days and into the nights (there are a couple of aftershow hour dinners scheduled) along with the dedication of the new E.A.A. Hangar that is to be used for the Young Eagles training program that is conducted by the E.A.A. Icing on the cake will be provided by an Air Show Friday and Saturday by Patty Wagstaff and a team aerodynamics show. I have been to every one of these expos since the first when I wrote an article predicting that they would never get off the ground. Boy was I ever wrong. The expo has grown to be the thing to see if you are at all interested in light plane flying or in flying of any dimension. If you have pressing business on any day of the show, stay away from the airport because if you go in,you will not be able to tear yourself away to attend to anything but light aircraft business. For you old fogies in wheelchairs or using canes or walkers as I do,dont worry, there is plenty of room for us and,as in the past,there will be benches-a-plenty to rest on. This is a show that the industry shows off its wares and there are forums on all aspects of light plane use. The only thing I will miss are the old B-26 Marauders that I stood guard on many a night back when Hendricks was the Sebring Army Airfield back in the early 1940s.

C M Y K Associated PressTALLAHASSEE A group with strong ties to business interests is urging Florida lawmakers to turn three new prisons over to private operators who will provide substance abuse and mental health treatment. The proposal Tuesday by the Florida Smart Justice Alliance drew opposition from public employee unions representing guards and other prison workers. They questioned the safety o f private prisons and claimed cost savings. The debate took place in front the Senate Criminal Justice Committee,which took no immediate action. The Smart Justice proposal calls for diverting nonviolent felons to prisons the state has built but never u sed because Floridas crime rate has fallen in recent years. P lacid.

C M Y K By KELLI KENNEDY A ssociated PressF ORT LAUDERDALE Child welfare officials said Monday that Hallandale Beach Police should have filed a missingperson reporti n October after talking with a mother who hadnt seen her b aby in more than a year. Authorities dug up what theyb elieve are the babys remains in the backyard of the parents former home last week. An officer called the state a buse hotline in October after Brittney Sierra complained that the father of her 5month-old son,Dontrelle, made excuses whenever shea sked to see him. The couple were not married and had an on-and-off relationship. She doesnt even know,I mean,whether the baby is even alive or not,an officer said on a transcript of the callr eleased Monday. When the operator asked what was going on in the case,the officer added,We really just dont know thew hereabouts of this child. Authorities charged Sierra, 2 1,and the babys father,27year-old Calvin Melvin,withc hild neglect Friday.After talking with the couple,they began digging in the backyard of their former home and eventually unearthed aw ooden box with human remains. The medical examiner is conducting DNA tests to identify the remains. It is unclear why it took so l ong for authorities or family members to investigate the babys whereabouts. Calvin Melvin repeatedly told Sierra that the baby was with Melvins parents. He told authorities the samet hing in October,but Hallandale Police said they didnt follow up then to see if that was true. Police did not immediately r espond to an email from The Associated Press seeking c omment Monday. Officials from the state D epartment of Children and Families said they did not follow up on the October call to the departments abuse hotline because they do noth ave the authority to investigate missing persons or criminal cases. The operator who took the call in October said shew ould document the officers concerns and asked him to call back if there was evidence of abuse or neglect, according to the transcript. After that,the case was essentially dropped by policea nd DCF. There was no allegation of abuse or neglect of this child in the October 2012 hotline report,DCFS ecretary David Wilkins said in a statement. T he case came to a head last week after a child protec-t ive investigator who was following up on another hotline call about the couples children went to the house and noticed there were only twoc hildren instead of three. Melvin again said the baby was with his parents but when the investigator followed up with the parents,t hey said that was untrue. When investigators went back to Melvins home,he had disappeared. He went to the police station Thursday to be interviewed and was later arrested. Police said he has changed his story several times and at one point said he dropped the child off at a fire station. Meanwhile,DCF has taken the babys two siblings into custody. By JENNIFER KAY Associated PressMIAMI A South Florida university is taking over a Florida Keys underwater research laboratory that had been set to close because of federal budget cuts,officials said Tuesday. Florida International University has received a grant to maintain Aquarius Reef Base for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in 2013. The Miami-area school also will develop a business model to fund future operations at the lab. NOAA owns the pressurized lab that sits about 60 feet below the oceans surface a few miles off Key Largo. The 43-foot-long metal tube it looks like a mobile home encrusted with coral allows scientists to live and work underwater for days at a time without coming up for air. Aquarius was the last government-funded underwater lab until President Barack Obamas administration cut its $3 million annual funding. It had been scheduled to shut down at the end of 2012 unless private funding could be secured. The new business model would aim to broaden financial support for the labs operations to include other scientific institutions and private donations, instead of relying only on the federal government, said FIU biology professor Jim Fourqurean,who will oversee operations at Aquarius. Marine scientists made what they thought would be their last dive to Aquarius in July. For two decades,year-round research at Aquarius allowed scientists to compile a continuous stream of data from one coral reef ina region where those fragile ocean ecosystems have rapidly declined. Scientists largely blame climate change and man-made stresses for that decline. the show.The opening curt ain and introduction to the show is a fresh and complete surprise.

C M Y K By LARRY NEUMEISTER A ssociated PressNEW YORK A federal appeals court denied bail Tuesday for a New YorkC ity police officer charged with conspiring to rape,kill a nd eat women after a judge cited evidence that the case wasnt built on a fantasy. T he three judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court o f Appeals agreed with three lower-court judges that Gilberto Valle should r emain imprisoned until his trial,which is scheduled to start next week but is likely to be delayed several weeks. Their decision was a nnounced without additional comment immediately after oral arguments. Valle was charged last year with using a law-enforce-m ent database between last January to Oct. 24 as he m ade plans to kidnap,rape, kill and eat women whilec ommunicating with others on a website devoted to the exploration of deviant sexual fantasies. Defense lawyers have said all alongh e was engaging in sexual fantasies and intended no violence. During Tuesdays argum ents,defense lawyer Edward Zas said Valle was just like 40,000 other people who go online to engage in the most heinous depraved chats but they are imaginary. Circuit Judge Chester J. Straub questioned how the defense could argue that the case was built solely on fantasies when there was evidence that Valle and others used real names,engaged in surveillance and discussed how much money would be charged to kidnap a woman. Zas said aspects of the governments case were already crumbling,including its claim that he went to Maryland to do surveillance on a woman,who now says s he knew the police officer and there was nothing unusual about his visit. Zas called the prosecution misguided and predictedV alle would be exonerated. s done nothing e xcept imagine bad things and put them foolishly on the Internet in a very badw ay,Zas said. If there is just role playing ... there is n o crime at all. The only crime is in Mr. Valles imagination. A ssistant U.S. Attorney H adassa Waxman told the court that the government had inadvertently mischaracterized the purpose of Valles visit with the womani n Maryland but added that there was plenty of other e vidence that went beyond fantasy. She said,for instance, t hat Valle had accessed the recipe for chloroform and s ent it to a co-conspirator and had an operating plan for kidnapping and cooking w omen. B y MALCOLM RITTER and LINDSEY TANNER Associated Press NEW YORK Mental health experts say a newt ougher New York state gun control law might interfere with treatment of potentially dangerous people and even discourage them from seek-i ng help. The law would require therapists,doctors,nurses and social workers to tell government authorities ift hey believe a patient is likely to harm himself or others. That could lead to revokingt he patients gun permit and seizing any guns. In interviews Tuesday,one e xpert called the new law meaningless and said he e xpects mental health providers to ignore it,while others said they worry abouti ts impact on patients. Dr. Paul Appelbaum at C olumbia University said the prospect of being reported to local mental health authorities and maybe the police might discourage peoplef rom revealing thoughts of harm to a therapist,or even f rom seeking treatment at all. The people who arguably most need to be in treatmenta nd most need to feel free to talk about these disturbing i mpulses,may be the ones we make least likely to do so,said the director of law, e thics and psychiatry at C olumbia. If people with suicidal or homicidal impulses avoid treatment for fear of being reported in this way,theym ay be more likely to act on those impulses,he said. Currently a mental health professional has a duty to protect potential victims of ap atient,but there are several ways to do that,he said. The patient can be committed to an institution,voluntarily or not,or his medication can bec hanged to reduce the risk,or the intended victim can be warned,he said. T he patients family can be asked to lock up any guns in the house,or to keep an eyeo n the patient to see if hes doing something that could b ring on violence,like drinking or skipping his medicat ions,Appelbaum said. The family could then notify the mental health professional. This flexibility allows a therapist to deal with a risk ofv iolence without breaching confidentiality in all cases, he said. And even if those steps are enough to blunt the danger,the proposed laww ould still require that the patient be reported to mental health authorities,he noted. It undercuts the clinical approach to treating thesei mpulses,and instead turns it into a public safety issue, Appelbaum said. H e also noted that in many mass shootings in the past, the gunman had not beenu nder treatment and so would not have been deterred by a l aw like the proposed measure. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, January 16, 2013Page 7A MARTIAL ARTS (pp r ead top only; 00026387 Wells New; 9.347"; 12.5"; Process color; -; 00026754 line.

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It came to an end Monday night, this latest edition of Avon Park girls soccer. A nd though it ended in a 5-1 loss to DeSoto in the District 10-2ATournament, there were plenty of posit ives taken from this night as well as the season on the w hole. They had beaten us before with their running and that was something we wanted to control, firstyear head coach Chris Sboto said afterward. The girls really did a good job of that tonight which shows how much they are improving. The Lady Devils had fallen to DeSoto by 6-0 and 5-0 scores during the regular season, but were holding them in predominant check early on in this latest goround. In fact, during the first 10 minutes, it was pretty much an overall stalemate with Avon Park getting out in its fair share of attacking runs. At the 8:40 mark, however, the Lady Bulldogs got on the board when sophomore keeper Rosa Cuellar got caught in no-mans land. Racing out to corall a loose ball, a quick-moving DeSoto forward got to the ball first and flipped it past for the opening score. Later, at the 15:08 mark of the game, a corner kick lead to the second score for the Bulldogs. Booted into the box, the ball was jostled around in a mass of swirling feet. Suddenly it appeared nestled between the feet of a Devil defender, when a DeSoto player forced it, literally, through the wickets and into the back of the net. From there though, Avon Park locked in and kept the Bulldogs at bay. DeSoto didnt even have a serious shot attempt over the next 15-plus minutes. And when they did, at the 31:18 mark, Cuellar made a pair of remarkable plays. On the initial shot, Cuellar dove and deflected it back in front of the goal and a little to her right, but left her in a prone position. Aquick second attempt saw the Devil keeper lunge and reach, while still on the ground, to smother it andk eep it a 2-0 game at the half. Cuellar made three more standout saves through the f irst 15 minutes of the second half, but the Bulldogs w ould soon break it open a b it with inside scores off of corner kicks. e really limited them with their running, but they got us on the corner kicks, Sboto said. Another adjustment for us to make. Avon Park would provide a few offensive thrills in the waning minutes with two breakaway opportunities. On the first one, it was a mad dash that the sprinting Bulldog keeper hopped on just in the nick of time. But moments later, the Devils were racing down again and saw senior Josianna Fils maintain control and beat the charging keeper to close out the scoring of the match and the season. s been an interesting year and were definitely on the right track, Sboto said. The girls have worked so hard and its shown in how much they have improved. They will have a lot more involvement in club play during the offseason and well be ready to go and looking forward to next year In addition to speck fishing at night, Ive made a couple of trips bass fishing to Lake Istokpoga with somewhat limited results. On New Years Day, I spent about eight hours checking out a number of past productive spots all over the lake. Water temperatures ranged from 61 degrees to 65 degrees, depending on my location. I started out flipping the West Wall, picking up two small bass on a jig and pig, with no takers on a plastic worm. The water looked good with reeds in water that ranged from 2-3 feet, but no early signs of spawning bass or newly made beds. On the south end of the lake, around the small reed islands, the water temperature was the coldest at 61 degrees. No takers on a jig or worm, although I did catch a nice 2 1/2pound bass on a Silver Phenom Bass Assassin in the hydrilla south of Bumblebee Island. Working the shoreline of the Big Island, I was surprised to finally hook into a large fish, unfortunately, it was a toothy gar and although it was a pretty good fight, he ended up cutting my line and escaping with one of my prized Medlock jigs. There are a number of reed islands, as well as reeds extending from shore, stretching across the East shoreline that have always produced some nice bass, but after a couple of hours flipping the area, they either werent in and around the reeds, or they were just shut down. My best results were on the north end where the water temperature was 64 degrees. Ive always done well flipping the reeds in this area and although I didnt see any action until around 2:30 p.m., I caught three bass in a 15 minute time period. The biggest was 3.13 and heavy with eggs. The other two, within 25 of each other, were both hefty 2 pounders. I tried to get a picture of one of the two pounders, but its hard to take a picture and land a fish even a two pounder. Early January can be a tough time to catch bass on Lake Istokpoga, as the bass are in an early pre-spawn mode, but as the water warms and we get closer to the first full moon of 2013, the biggest spawners in the lake should be showing up. Ive always heard the north end of the lake will warm up first and many bass will be spawning on both the North and West shorelines. The good news is that the bass fishing will only get better as we move into the New Year. By mid-February through March, your chances of catching that wallhanger will be at its highest. On a different note, I wanted to mention our local bait and tackle shops. I stopped by the Lorida Bait and Tackle store the other day and I was surprised when John Wood, the owner, mentioned that business was slower than usual for this time of the year. John has a great fishing tackle store with a terrific selection of tackle, rods and reels as well as live bait. Hes also an incredible fisherman, whos always happy to share his fishing knowledge with anyone who asks. In 2005, I fulfilled a lifes dream, by opening a bait and tackle store in Avon Park called Reds. We opened in December, and held our grand opening in January 2006. We had a great couple of months and then by April, business just died. Whether it was due to the fact that all the snowbirds went back up north, or everybody just quit fishing, Ill never know. But we went days with only one or two customers. Finally, by September of that same year, it was obvious to me that running a business, particularly a fishSPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, January 16, 2013 N ASCAR This Week4B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE This three-point shot would hit nothing but the bottom of the net and bring Lake Placid senior Alex Coynes career scoring total to an even 1,000 points.

B y DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It is a m ark of ability as well as l ongevity, as Lake Placid senior Alex Coyne verified Monday night soon after scoring her 1,000th career point in a blowout win of Frostproof. ou pretty much have to be playing varsity since youre a freshman, she said. Which points to the remarkable ability Coyne possesses, as she started her high school career with a powerful Chartiers Valley squad in suburban Pittsburghs Bridgeville. That 2009-10 team went 23-6, 12-0 in conference play, and would graduate two seniors who each had 1,000 career points. On a sophomore dominated team the next season, Coyne played a big part in guiding the Lady Colts to a 17-6 record, 8-2 in conference. From there, the Coynes made their way to Lake Placid where mother Jackie took over the head coaching duties and Alex continued to shine and add on to her career point totals. But Coyne isnt all about the scoring, it is just one aspect of the game she happens to excel at. Monday night showed that, along with her other abilities, not to mention her sense of team play. Heading into the conte st, Coyne stood at 978 career points, needing 22 to reach the coveted mark. Going against an overmatched Lady Bulldog squad, it was up in the air as to whether shed get enough playing time. Not to mention, her shoo ting hand may have gone cold with the goal getting ever closer. Her shooting touch, how ever, would not be an issue this night. After Quiahja Williams g ot things started with back-toback inside scores, Coyne scored 10 straight on her own. Consecutive three-pointers, both swishes, were followed by steals near halfcourt and drives for scores with both the left and right hand. The Lake Placid bench got some time on the court, with the score now at 16-0, but Coyne nets 1,000th in Dragon win See COYNE, Page 3B Fishin Around Don Norton Istokpoga and Tackle Shops See SHOPS, Page 3B Lady Devils finish soccer season on high note News-Sun file phot by DAN HOEHNE Shannon Bloemsma notched 18 saves to help Sebring win Mondays District 13-3A Tournament opener.

Frostproof would finish out the first-quarter scoring with a jumper that made it a 22-2 game. Coyne began the second quarter with another steal, but dished off an assist to Breauna Corley on the break before snaring another steal and taking it in herself for number 15, leaving her seven away. Two more lay-ups off of turnovers got her to 19, just three away, before she slipped another pass inside for an assist to Corley. Soon after, after a pass inside was kicked back out, Coyne quickly surveyed the set, looking for an open teammate. But with the Frostproof defense sagging, she measured out the three-pointer and drained it to hit the 1,000p oint mark. She was soon awarded the ball with which she attained the great achievement and had the rest of the night off as the Dragons would finish off the 44-15 win. s exciting and a relief, Coyne said. From suburban Pittsburgh to rural central Florida, Alex Coynes basketball journey has been well-traveled. And through it all, her concept of team play and exceptional ability to elevate those around her has shone through. But as Monday nights achievement also showed the girl can fill it up. Lake Placid is back in action Thursday at Okeechobee and get back into district play with a key match-up Friday at Avon Park. Continued from 1B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Coyne received the ball with which she scored No. 1,000 Coyne connects as Dragons cruise ing tackle store in Highlands County was going to be challenging. By November, I made the decision to close my business. It was a tough decision to make, but without steady customers throughout the year, my inventory was killing me. I had a going out of business sale and sold everyt hing for pennies on the dollar. It was a huge financial loss for me and my family, but more importantly, my dream of owning and operating a fishing tackle store in my retirement years was vanquished. I moved to Highlands County in 1996, and since that time, Ive seen a number of fishing tackle businesss start up and eventually close. There are probably a good many reasons, but its a shame since we all benefit from having a quality fishing tackle store in our area. I suspect many of you do what I do, and thats just go on the internet to Bass Pro Shops or Cabelas (or anyo ne of the other fishing tackle companies), order what you want and wait for it to be delivered to your door. Its an easy way to shop, certainly at your leisure and you dont have to drive anywhere to get what you want. If not the internet, big box stores like Walmart and Dicks Sporting Goods. But heres a suggestion, figure out what you want and call one of your local tackle dealers. They may even have what youre looking for in stock. From what Ive seen, their prices are competitive to Bass Pro Shops and Cabelas and they get the benefit of the sale, while you get the benefit of supporting a Highlands County business. There are other bait and tackle shops in Highlands County that deserve your patronage as well. Aquick look in the Highlands Countywidep hone book only lists L orida Bait and Tackle, 1 747 US 98, Lorida 863655-5510, under Fishing Tackle Dealers, but there a re others that sell tackle and live bait.

In Avon Park, Hendrick s also sells tackle and live bait. As fishermen and residents of Highlands County we should do all we can to patronize these businesss. If we dont, our only choice in the future may be going on-line to make our purchases. Don Norton is a professional t ournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

C M Y K P erfectionism is like a monster with hundreds of tentacles and it reaches into every part of our lives and holds on till we canf ind it and rip it out. The only problem is that if there is the least little bit left,it will fester till it tries to take over your lifea gain. I find little vestiges of my perfectionism almost every single day. It is a never ending process to eliminate this from my thinking,much like declut-t ering. I have to nip them in the bud before they take o ver. See,in my perfectionism I want to rip out every single bit of it,but Ic ant because I dont know where it is hiding. The t rick is to be aware of its signs. The perfectionism monster makes us obsess and do too much,as well asp rocrastinate and do nothing. We have been dealing w ith issues that we have been procrastinating about. Many times we put offd oing something because it is just too hard to get all of o ur ducks in a row to ge started. We allow Parkinsons L aw to kick in without even thinking,As Professor C. Northcote P arkinson says,ork expands so as to fill the t ime available for its completion.Do not allow yourself to get caught up in this inefficient way of thinking. H e uses the example of a lady wanting to send a card to her niece. She has to look for the right card, find her glasses,then,after she has toiled with writing the perfect words on thec ard,she has to try to find the address,then to find a s tamp. Then it is raining outside and she cant find her umbrella so she can walk down the street and put it in the mailbox. A ll of this over a little card that could take many of us just three minutes to write,address,stamp and mail. Why did she take sol ong to accomplish this simple task? It was because she didt have a system for efficiently using her time. Busy people keep everything they need for paying bills in one spot,or do they. Do you have to hunt for your bills in your mail hotspot,a pen,stamps or, better yet,you cant pay bills because you do not know how much money you have in the bank and you need to balance six months of bank statements or spend hours bringing down your balance in your checkbook. Or do you just write the checks and pray that you wont be overdrawn. Half the battle of paying bills is being able to have everything in one spot so you only have to spend 15 minutes doing it,not all day.This is why we procrastinate because we dont think we have time. Many of us are busy with jobs outside the home,soccer practice,dance class and tons of other appointments that we spend many hours in waiting rooms or waiting in our cars for our babies to join us. This is time that we never do get back. F or years I have used my version of our Office in a Bag. In it I kept myc heckbook,pens,pencils,a colored pen for signing c ards,greeting cards, thank you notes,my address book,postage stamps,a calculator,paper clips,a little stapler,ar uler,some graph paper,a high lighter,some pretty s tationery,some plain paper and a little notebook paper. This was like havinge verything in a desk drawer with me at all times. I t ook it with me to work,so on my lunch hour,I could pay a bill,balance my c heck book,write a letter, send a card,make out a grocery list or plan my menus for next week. This little tool allowed me thef lexibility to use tiny bits of time while I was waiting for football practice to end. An Office in a Bag k eeps me from procrastinating and taking a lot of t ime to just mail a card or a check. Or the best part,it k eeps me from running around the house looking for a pen,a stamp and the address; Parkinsons Law is not going to creep ina nd take over my life like the lady in Professor Parkinson book, arkinsos Law.

We tell each other everything, and I have fallen in love with him. A few months ago,Myles sent me a text saying he needed to tell me a secret. He went on to say the guy he had told me was his brother, Jeff,is really his lover. Needless to say,that bombshell floored me. We have discussed it in person,and I have never told him how I feel. I visit them a couple of times a month and always go home feeling hurt.I want Myles for myself, even though I know I cant have him. I dont want to lose him as my friend,but it hurts seeing him and Jeff together. How do I resolve this? Girl Left Behind in California Dear Left Behind: Start by being as honest with M yles as he was with you. Tell him that over the course of your friendship you fell in love with him and that you wish you had known he wasg ay before you became so emotionally involved. If you want romance,you will have to look for it elsewhere. In order for you to find it,I cannot stress strongly enough that you will need to feel good about yourself. Stop torturing yourself by visiting the two lovebirds and take a break for a while. A long while. Dear Abby: I am a 36year-old woman who has never been married or had children. For the past two years Ive been seeing a man ll call Frank. I love him deeply,and I believe he feels the same about me. Frank is still married but legally separated from his wife. They have one child who lives with his mom. Frank lives with me,and Franks wife lives with another man and has a second child by yet another guy. My problem is,Franks wife calls me whenever she has a fight with her boyfriend. She confides in m e like Im her best friend. I have never talked to Frank about divorcing her,but Im at my wits end over this whole circle. Sometimes If eel like Im wasting my time with him. Abby,Im a longtime reader who needs to find a solution to this soap opera. Please help me. Getting Dizzy in East Boston Dear Getting Dizzy: You need to talk to Frank about his degree of commitment to you. Two years is a long time to live with someone whos married to someone else let alone be trying to solve his wifes love problems. Perhaps its time to distance yourself from both of them and figure out what you want to do for you. Dear Abby: My friend Maggieis getting a divorce. She has been living with my husband and me for four months. She pays onethird of our utility bill but pays no rent. My husband feels that since Maggie is living with us,she should pay something even if its only $100a month. Shes a lifelong friend,and I dont know w hat to do. Maggie is very upset over her messy divorce. Should I ask her for rent money? (I dont want to fight over this with my hus-b and.) Only Friend in Kentucky Dear Only Friend: It depends on Maggies financial circumstances. If she has the money,its certainly OK to ask. If she doesnt have the resources or a job she should consider finding one so shes not completely financially dependent on others.

Woman in love with gay man must begin to look elsewhere Dear Abby Associated PressLOS ANGELES Lindsay Lohan is expected to be arraigned Tuesday in a misdemeanor case over allegations she lied to police about a June traffic accident,though the actress is not required to attend the hearing. Lohan is charged with reckless driving,lying to police about whether she was driving when her Porsche slammed into the back of a dump truck,and obstructing police from performing their duties. The accident occurred while Lohan and her assistant were on their way to shoot a beach scene for the television movie Liz and Dick. Lohan told police that she wasnt driving,but police suspect she was behind the wheel. The wreck sent her to the hospital briefly. The actress was on probation at the time for a 2011 necklace theft case and could be sentenced to 245 days in jail if a judge determines her conduct violated her probation. Her probation was revoked last month but she had yet to enter a plea on the new charges. Lohans publicist and longtime attorney Shawn Holley did not return messages Monday about the hearing. The accident was not the only problem she encountered while shooting Liz and Dick,a film based on the love affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. A week after the accident,paramedics were summoned to Lohans hotel room when she was late to a shoot. Her publicist at the time attributed her absence to fatigue and dehydration.

I have been working in Tampa at Florida Hospital Tampa for the past two weeks helping them do another Great Living Menu roll out and it is an awesome experience for me every time I see the menu roll out in other accounts. It pleases me to see the look on the culinary team members faces when they see all the fresh ingredients and colorful dishes. Rolling out a menu makes for a very involved process because there are so many steps to getting it started. From putting the menus in place to buying the food to creating all the taste and temperature logs so that there is accurate records of the quality of all foods being served to our patients as well as in our caf. One of the main focuses of these logs is temperature control. It is so important to maintain the safe temperatures of the foods during the entire production for both hot and cold foods. The most challenging is the cold food so we go the great lengths to maintain the proper temperature of all our cold dishes by chilling all the plates and building all the cold foods from ingredients stored in containers that are held on ice. While in Tampa I tried a recipe that the chef made and thought I would share it with you this week. It is a simple Succotash recipe but made with whole wheat cous cous that can be served as a hot side dish or a chilled salad. Cheers,Chef. 24 ounce whole wheat Israeli couscous 3/4 cup corn,cut,whole kernel,frozen 3/4 cup beans,lima,baby, frozen 1/2 cup peppers,bell,red, fresh,diced,1/4" 2 ounce onions,red,fresh, chopped,1/8" 1/4 cup fresh herb mix with lemon 1/3 cup maple cider vinaigrette Preparation method Prepare couscous according to instructions on package Toss couscous with corn, lima beans,red pepper, onions,herbs and maple cider vinaigrette.
