By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Troy Bostick was born Jan. 17,1983. He died Feb. 22,2009. In those 26 years,Troy went through 22 operations and dealt with developmental delay,autism and renal failure. His parents,Arthur and Beverly Bostick,learned the hard way,while Troy was alive,how much families of the disabled were on their own. In 1983 there were no resources or support,Arthur Bostick said. Tros life became a merry-go-round of doctors,nurses and hospital visits. The family,by default, became a center of information for other families in the same situation,the hub of a network providing knowledge,introductions and supplies for those struggling in the bureaucratic maze.

By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Highlands County schools started the week off with a little more security for students,par-e nts,employees and all individuals on the campus in the wake of F ridays shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown,C onn. Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton made a conscious effort to better serve the schools by implementing extra law enforcement onc ampuses throughout the county. Monday morning,students couldnt help but notice the extra officers and deputies on campus. The sheriff chose to take a unit from road patrol and put them in each of the schools,HCSO Public Information Officer Nell Hays said. oday,there will be a meeting to d iscuss protocols and plans for schools. After that we will sit down with the schoolsresource officers and discuss their protocols. We will m ake sure their plans are up to date and that the schoolsprotocols are in line with the sheriffs offices in thee vent something like that happens here,Hays explained. Woodlawn Elementary School Principal Kaye Bowers spoke to a small group of parents Monday after-n oon during the after-school pick ups on the campus. e are just trying to get a feel of t he parents feelings about what has happened. Wve been thinking,and not just since what happened lastw eek but for about three years now, about changing the way in which School security increased Lawmaker favors ending ban on guns in schools We want to make sure these students are always safe.RICKKOGELSCHATZ KLCdean of student See SECURITY,page 6A See STATE,page 6A See CHARTER,page 3A See RACING,page 3A B y BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentS EBRING A moveto grant Highlands County workers a one-time lump sumb onus was not successful at the regular Tuesday county c omission meeting.

C omissioner Don Elwell suggested the proposed polic y change that consists of three elements. First,there would be no more designated vaca-t ion timeor sick timeas such. Instead, employees would go to a paid time ofor PTO program. That would mean that any time off would come out of t heir PTO allotment,Elwell said. Whether they were headed to the dentist office or taking the family to Disney World,it all becomes thes ame. Under the new plan, employees also would not be permitted to accrue sick time as they do now. Elwell wasq uick to point out that current employees that had banked such time would not lose any ofit but after such a policy was put into effect,that practice would be halted. The proposal alsowould permit employees to sell backa weeks worth of paid time to the county for cash.

PASADENA, Calif. (AP Apair of NASAspacecraft crashed into a mountain near the moons north pole on Monday, bringing a deliberate end to a mission that peered into the lunar interior. Engineers commanded the twin spacecraft, Ebb and Flow, to fire their engines and burn their remaining fuel. Ebb plunged first followed by Flow about 30 seconds later. Afterward, NASAsaid it had dedicated the final resting spot in honor of mission team member, Sally Ride, the first American woman in space who died earlier this year. By design, the impact site was far away from the Apollo landings and other historical sites. Rides sister, who huddled in the NASAcontrol room for the finale, said it might be time to dust off Rides first telescope to view the newly named site. e can look at the moon with a new appreciation and a smile in the evening when we see it knowing that a little corner of the moon is named after Sally, the Rev. Bear Ride said in an interview. Since the back-to-back crashes occurred in the dark, they were not visible from Earth. The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter circling the moon will pass over the mountain and attempt to photograph the skid marks left by the washing machine sized-spacecraft as they hit the surface at 3,800 mph. After rocketing off the launch pad in September 2011, Ebb and Flow took a roundabout journey to the moon, arriving over the New Years holiday on a gravitymapping mission.

C M Y K LOS ANGELES (AP C onfidence among U.S. homebuilders inched upward this month to the highest level in more than six and a half years as builders report-e d the best market for newly built homes since the housi ng boom. The National Association of Home Builders/WellsF argo builder sentiment index released Tuesday i ncreased to 47, up 2 points from a revised 45 in November. Thats the highe st reading since April 2006, just before the housing bubble burst. Readings below 50 suggest negative sentimenta bout the housing market. The last time the index was at or above that level was in April 2006, with a reading of 51. It has been trendingh igher since October 2011. The latest index, which is b ased on responses from 441 builders, reflects growingo ptimism that a turnaround in housing will endure after years of stagnation. While there is still much room for improvement, the consistent upward trend in builder confidence over the past year is indicative of theg radual recovery that has been taking place in housing m arkets nationwide and that we expect to continue in 2013, said David Crowe,t he NAHBs chief economist. More people have started l ooking to buy homes, encouraged by a gradually improving economy, a steady rise in home values and mortgage rates that haveb een low all year. At the same time, the i nventory of previously occupied homes available for sale has fallen sharply,r educing the competition for newly built homes. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, December 19, 2012Page 3A M ARTIAL ARTS (pp 2 x3 ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 5 5 6 6 5 5 8 8 GRIFFIN'S CARPET MART; 7.444"; 10"; Black; 12/19/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 6 6 0 0 5 5 5 5 S pecial to the News-SunSEBRING Aribbonc utting for the traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibition, Journey Storiest ook place Dec. 7.

The charter is now with the attorney, where thosei ssues are being addressed. City Manager Julian Deleon and City Attorney Gerald Buhr expect to have a final copy ready in plenty oft ime for the off year election in 2013. s really just a matter of tweaking and clarifying some language, Buhr said. Rewriting the city charter w as given a high priority in the spring of 2012. It has b een many years since the city revisited its city charter. No one in office today can remember the last revision. The current document does not reflect changes in state statutes. In addition, the language used is awkward and in some places confusing. For these reasons, a decision was made to write a new c harter using a modern, clearer, simplified style. City council selected a committee of volunteer citi-z ens to act as the primary authors under the direction o f the Buhr. The committee produced a 1 0-page document, as opposed to the 28-page chart er currently in place. T he councils produ ct moved smoothly through the public hearing process until particular details caused concern. Removed for consideration to make the needed adjustments, Deleon expected the revised charter would be ready in time for the mand ated three public hearings a nd public referendum in the fall. The Charter Commission is not taking part in the fine tuning. The Avon Park city website took the proposed charter down, until the latest revisions are complete and discussed. The current city charter is posted. Continued from page 1A moment of it. Troy was a constant source of unconditional love with a wonderful outlook on life, his parents said. He had a contagious smile that would light up a room, his father said. After Troys passing the Bosticks wanted to do something permanent in his memory. Building on their established organization, they created Racing 4 Rights, The Troy Bostick Foundation Corp. the name comes from Troys love of NASCAR and racing. His favorite driver was Jeff Gordon. Racing 4 Rights provides supplies, transportation and other support for families caring for a disabled member. There have cutbacks in funding for the handicapped, Bostick said. Some people really dont know where to go, or who the specialized doctors are. Some supplies are expensive. For example, having to keep a 14-year-old in diapers adds up in a hurry From 6 to 9 p.m., Thursday, the foundation is joining with Dairy Queen in front of Home Depot for a fundraiser to benefit Racing 4 Rights. The restaurant is giving it 10 percent of the proceeds earned during the event. Because Troy loved racing, Aggressive Eagle Racing will have trucks available for inspection, and Arthur Bostick himself AKAMr. Athe D. J. will be spinning discs. He hopes to raise $80 to $100 during the night.

C M Y K Its not as if heart twisting grief doesnt come to us naturally just SaturdayL indsey Hammortrees family and friends put her to rest at the end of her short, but bravel ife. They will never be the same again. It isnt as if weve never f aced terrorism; have never been targets as we go about o ur lives. In the last two decades alone weve seen terrible actso f violence in the most unlikely places: In 1984 a s hooting in a McDonalds in California (21 people dead the Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995, blown up by a Navy veteran( killing 196 people); two snipers terrorizing the W ashington, D.C. area in 2002, killing 10 people at random; a gunman runningt hrough the peaceful West Virginia Tech campus in 2007 s hooting 33 students and teachers as he went. Weve seen young people s hot in a movie theater, shoppers shot at in a mall and, of course, are still in a state of shock at the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2011 with their incomprehensible toll. Even with all this experie nce, however, we were unprepared for Fridays terrible attack on 6and 7-year-o lds. We mean emotionally prepared. The schools staff andl eadership had plans of action teachers, administrators a nd at least one custodian responded alertly saving lives by staying calm and thinkingq uickly. The women who died, died saving their stud ents, knowing full well what they risked. We owe it to them to remember teachers do more than bring learning and skills,a t school they are our childrens first line of defense. T he principal and school psychologist are reported to have been killed when theyt hrew themselves at the gunman in an effort to stop him. S uch stories of heroism and courage abound. Can we who are not directl y touched by the tragedy even begin to imagine the overwhelming, soul-killing pain parents feel when a child is yanked out of existence this way? When family and friends are left looking intot he dark, jagged hole of nothing left behind? Can we, who have never lost, comprehend sitting at a table with an empty chair? C an we, whose bodies have never tangled in knots of desperation and grief, unable to eat, unable to sleep, really understand the horror? T hink of the parents on other continents, watching their son or daughter beingc arried away, kidnapped into a life of war, slavery, servitude or prostitution. C hildren all over the world are at risk. O ur children are not unique. The fact that our childrens g reatest danger comes from fellow citizens turned predat ors is a bitter, unsettling realization. But we must not succumb to despair or to misjudge the situation, we must not over-r eact, as difficult as that will be. W e cannot build walls and gates, imprisoning our children in the name of safety.T he last thing we need to do is give in to irrational fear. W e need to remember going to school is still one of the safest things a child can d o. Armed guards, high fences, parents restricted outside closed gates will only reinforce fear and heighten paran oia. Should schools have of p lans of action and practice them? Absolutely. Do we need to revisit mental healthc are in this country? Yes. But right now what we n eed to do is remember the 26 lives stolen from us Friday by a 20-year-old who may turn o ut to also be a victim. Now is not a time to react. Now is a time to pray and reflect.

In Florida, we have given corporations grants of millions of dollars to move to Florida, (no strings attached any assurance of jobs to be created. Recently an attempt to amend the Constitution to shift property tax burdens away from business property to residential taxpayers was but narrowly defeated. Tampa is offering millions to attract a big box sporting goods store, presumptively to compete with local merchants although it is difficult to find any community benefit in this. Similar arguments are advanced for reducing federal spending on so-called entitlements, those programs which benefit the middle working class; so we can be more competitive in the world markets; presumptively compete with China, Indonesia and other parts of the world where very low wages and a total absence of concerns for citizens welfare permits those countries to out perform the United States in world competition for markets of manufactured goods. Who decided thatgovernments, state and federal, were supposed to subordinate all of their other concerns to the acquisition of bigger and bigger markets, regardless of the impact on tax bases, on the quality of life of their citizens is something of a mystery. No longer to promote the general welfare. No vote to achieve this structuring of our priorities has ever been taken. Only throughstealthy campaigns, manipulating the legislatures through threats and campaign contributions, lobbying and lambasting have our governments come to represent the business interests of our communities, to the virtual exclusion of all other concerns. Randy Ludacer Lake PlacidNext time could be worseEditor: I have given a lot of thought about the shooting of all of those little children. Its a blessing that the horrible person did not have an AK47 or some other kind of machine gun. Its just a matter of time before some nut tries to out do the last nut. I believe it is time to ban machine guns. Only the military and SWAT teams should have them and the rest of us allowed only six bullets in our guns. I am not anti-gun. I served in the U.S. Marines in a combat unit and was allowed to carry my pistol with me. I have had a permit to carry since 1970. Twice I have had to draw it. I always wondered how I would react under those conditions. No problem. Thank goodness for my Marine training. Item No. 1 Have a real policeman full time in every school. Have all students come in through the front door. Stop any student wearing a mask or gives the police a hard time, place the person under arrest. With a minimum of two weeks in jail, I will bet this wont happen often after that. Have all other doors with push bars that can be opened from the inside only. Have a large sign saying For Emergency Use Only. Opening the door will result in a lock down of the school, there are many cameras and will result in an arrest and a minimum of two weeks in jail. Item No. 2 Have a second policeman stay until the last bus has unloaded the last students. Have police nearby. If one must leave, have others nearby in case they are called to help out. Item No. 3 Have all classroom doors so they can be opened from the inside only. Use shatterproof glass only. Locate the window so the teacher can see out and locate the door opener so even if the window is broken the suspect can not reach the door opener and have an alarm sound for a lock down. Have the teacher and all students get as far away from the door, and lie down on the floor. Item No. 4 Have all sales people and all visitors come in through the front guard station. If anyone looks nervous, detain them and call for back up. Better safe than sorry. Remember guns now can be made out of steel and even plastic. Item No. 5 Have a second police watching all delivery people for any unusual conduct. I hope Im wrong, but Im afraid the next time could be much worse. Joseph J. Oros Sebring Last week can l ose my number, stop telling people we dated in college and untag the pictures of ust ogether on Facebook. Its a bad week when my first reaction to whath appened in Newtown was, Oh, another one. I s a bad week when I asked myself what was stopping somethingl ike this from happening at the elementary school my c hildren attend in Austin, and I couldnt come up with an answer. I s a bad week when you have to turn off the n ews to stop crying. Its a bad week when I forgot about the mass shooting in the Clackamas Town Center where I wenti ce skating as a child even though it had only happ ened a few days earlier. Its a bad week when a friend mentioned theA urora shooting, and I remembered that I had r ecently watched The Dark Knight Rises without once thinking about t hose poor people who died in the movie theater. Its a bad week when political cartoonists are running out of ideas form ass shootings. Its a bad week when we need 20 dead children to be reminded to pray and to hug our children. I s a bad week when Fox News commentator M ike Huckabee trots out a conservative trope to blamen on-evangelical Christians for the school shooting. e ask why there is violence in our schools, but weve systematicallyr emoved God from our schools. Should we be so surprised that schools would become a place of carnage because wevem ade it a place where we dont want to talk about eternity, life, what responsibility means, accountability? asked Huckabee. I spent many Sundays in a fundamentalist Christian church back home, and I dont remember our pastor ever depicting God as a Mafioso who demands protection money lest something happen to our children. Did we kick God out of the Oregon shopping mall, the Colorado cinema or the Wisconsin Sikh temple? Has secularism become so powerful that we can exile an omniscient deity from our public spaces? Or is there an answer that doesnt demand we suspend both our critical thinking skills and the New Testament promise of a merciful God who loves us unconditionally and doesnt kill our children? Obama did well to react to this, as he said, not as a president, but as a nybody else would as a parent. And when you see childsized body bagso n television, parents demand we do something. As a country, we have beent hrough this too many times. Whether it is ane lementary school in Newtown, or a shopping mall in Oregon, or a templei n Wisconsin, or a movie theater in Aurora, or a s treet corner in Chicago, these neighborhoods are our neighborhoods andt hese children are our children. And were going to h ave to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics, said Obama. F or too long, we have silently assented to dealing w ith mass shootings by indulging ourselves in public expressions of griefw ithout agreeing to have a grownup discussion about w hat to do about an obvious problem. It has been our unspoken h abit to retreat to our trenches in a national tragedy instead of inviting each other to common ground with the humilityt hat we dont have to agree on everything to do something. Gun-control advocates have a point that assaultw eapons make mass murderers a heck of a lot more e ffective than a knife. Second Amendment back-e rs have a good point that the problem isnt the guns, its the crazy people using them. Arecent poll of National R ifle Association members and gun owners conducted by a Republican pollster provides a good place to start. Three quarters ofN RAmembers and 87 percent of other gun owners support requiring criminal background checks of anyone buying a gun. Will that prevent another Sandy Hook? No, but thats not the point. The kernel of that polls finding is that gun owners agree that dangerous people shouldnt be allowed to have guns. Making it the policy of this country that dangerous criminals and lunatics shouldnt have guns is long overdue. Lets start here. Otherwise, well be right back here again, perhaps as soon as next week.

The last component of the poposal allowed employees the opportunity of a special one-time sell backof additional hours to the county. That still has to come back before the commission. County Administrator June Fisher will get with our human resources department and design a final,detailed plan for us to look at,Elwell said. After the new proposal was presented,the original special payconcept was voted down 5-0. Although there was no vote taken on the new proposal,commissioners agreed by concensus to move ahead with the idea. Because Tuesdays session was the last Highlands County commission meeting of the year,any such plan will not be consid-e red at least until Jan. 8. I expect it could come to us in early January.There was a lot of interest shown in fleshing out the details to this,he said. Although the idea came up under Fishers portion of the agenda,reportedly,it was commission chair Jack Richies idea thata one-time lump sum be paid to workers based on a sliding scalt. Those checks would have run between $200 and $400 depending upon the employees annual salary. The bulk of the money for that plan,a little more than $200,000,would have come from the countys reserve for contingency fund.

P arents around the country are letting the small stuffs lide,indulging their kids just a little bit,relieved as Heenan is to have them safe only a few days after a gunman claimed the lives 20 students and six adults in N ewtown. In Safety Harbor,Fla., close to Tampa Bay,Christie O Sullivan feels it with her two boys,5 and 6,the latter the same age as many of the victims at Sandy Hook Elementary.

I had to just stop and appreciate my messy bathroom,she said. Having a 6-year-old myself and imagining him seeing this horror in his life crushes me. Just t he very thought of it makes me break down into tears. Child experts urge,among o ther things,that parents worried about the reaction of their children to the Newtown tragedy maintain routines.

C ountry Christmas in Lake Placid children are picked up. I just want to get some feedback. How would you feeli f we didnt allow you all to come up here to pick them up but made the policy that you all stay in your vehicles? Bowers asked. P arents concerns and issues with the proposed change ranged from understanding to dislike. One father explained his concernw ith the safety of the pickup car line and that its easier to exit his car and wait for his children at the pickup site. Though many of the pare nts agreed that the car line was more efficient, the cons ensus was that the parents enjoy seeing their children walk from their classroomst o the pick up site each afternoon. K indergarten Learning Center Dean of Students Rick Kogelschatz described how the school has been since the implementation oft he law enforcement on campus. Yesterday we had one sheriffs deputy and two Sebring police officers onc ampus. Today I know we have one officer and a d eputy has been here as w ell, Kogelschatz said. Though many of the 5and 6-year-olds that roam the halls of the KLC are not fully aware of the SandyH ook tragedy, parents have been on edge over the past several days, most fearing for the safety of their students. The kids notice the police car, of course, but for the parents Ive spoken to they feel its very comforting. They are relievedt hat the community and law enforcement have shown concern and work to protect us. Every year we do a lockdown procedure with the kids; we just had oursi n October. We will be doing another this year w hen we get back into school after the holiday break, Kogelschatz said. We want to make sure these students are always s afe. Other schools in the district have also held procedural lockdowns since the week began. Cracker TrailE lementary School staff confirmed that a practice l ockdown took place Monday afternoon. Mrs. McGowan and I w ent to every classroom and handed out lockdown p rocedures, reviewed the s afety manual and procedures. We didnt have any students ask for any counseling; they know whats going on. It was hard toa void it, but we havent had one student visit the office or guidance counselor asking questions or anything, said principal Dr. RichardD emeri. According to Demeri, Deputy Superintendent Rodney Hollinger sent out several emails yesterdaya fternoon instructing school prinicpals to implement (if they hadnt already) a locked door policy across the campuses. Demeri also stated that Cracker Trail isc urrently looking into implementing a buzzer syst em for the school. eve had an outstanding presence from the sher-i ffs office. This morning as I was opening doors in the c ar line I saw one parent roll down her window and thank the deputy for being there. Ive had calls from parents asking What arey ou doing to protect my child?and I explain to t hem procedures and safety. They all appreciate it and are receptive to what thed eputies and the schools are doing right now, Demeri s aid. Continued from page 1A harm weve created all these gun-free zones and what weve inadvertently done is weve made them a target, he said. helpless target is exactly what a d eranged person is looking for where they cannot be stopped. Baxleys idea wasnt welcomed by the Florida Education Association, the states largest teachers union. B axley said he understood some people would respond to the Connecticut shootings w ith a call for more gun control laws, but he said the laws dont work. If you prepare ordinary people to take responsibility for stopping violence, they do. Otherwise were just creating more vulnerability, he said. I know that its very foreign to people that live in a more left and urbanized culture to see how that works, but in fact it does work. Baxley was the sponsor of the bill that became known as the stand your groun law, which allows deadly force to be used ifn ecessary to prevent death or serious injury.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It wasnt quite the matchup that Lake Placid girls basketball head coach Jackie Coyne might have hoped for in her teams5 0-25 win over visiting Clewiston Monday night. But the one-sided affair and it really wasnt as closea s the final score indicated did have itsbenefits to her s quad. It gave a lot of girls a c hance to get some court time and we were really able to w ork on some things, Coyne said. Theres stilla lot of inexperience on this team, and while were definitely improving, we were able to work on setting up the offense better tonight. The Lady Tigers were hampered coming in, having lost a strong player from last years squad whose family moved away, and without the services of injured sophomore point guard Kiana Hardy. This left Tianna Thomas as a virtual, one-woman show who would lead Clewiston with a game-high 18 points. That really hurts them, being without (Hardy Coyne said. (Thomas strong player, but she cant do it all by herself. Which was the polar opposite of what the Dragons were about, as nine different players got into the scoring column. Raveen Gobourne got it started with two lay-ups before Alex Coyne hit a baseline jumper and then slippeda pass inside for a chip-in from Breaunna Corley. Shaquavia Gayle then worked inside for two before the Tigers finally got on the board with a long two from Krissharia Roye. But then Lake Placid was off on another 10-point run with Corley getting a putback, Coyne scoring on the break, Corley getting another dish from Coyne for an inside score, Cassidy Teachout scoring in the lane and Coyne spinning in a reverse on one of the many fast breaks the Dragon defense was creating. Thomas halted the run with a follow, though SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, December 19, 2012 NASCAR This Week3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Adelrose Jerome puts one up in the lane during Lake Placids fourth straight win Monday night. Lady Dragons tame Tigers Lake Placid50Clewiston25 MCTphoto New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz wears a tribute to one of the shooting victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School on his shoes for the game against the Atanta Falcons Sunday, Dec. 16. P AULNEWBERRY Associated PressThere are times when s ports bring out the best i n us. Like Victor Cruz writing a heartfelt message on his cleats, dedicated to a 6-year-old victim of the carnage at Sandy Hook Elementary School. There are times when s ports bring out the worst in us. Not even 72 hours removed from the horror in Newtown, there were racist tweets blasting NBC for pre-empting its regular Sunday night football coverage to show President Obamas speech from that devastated community. One of the tweets a pparently was sent by a walk-on player at the University of North Alabama (who quicklyb ecame a former player). Sports, of course, had n othing to do with Adam Lanzas walking into that s chool and killing 26 people, most of them innoc ent little kids filled with nothing but hope and wonder and goodness. America needs to come to grips with truly important issues: gun control, mental illness, a violent culture among them. Yet, we need sports perhaps more than ever to help us get started on that path toward being a better nation, a better people, a better world. Maybe, just maybe, in some small way the games we play can show us how to be a little nicer to each other, or at least more respectful. The athletes can lead the way. Their actions have meaning, now more than ever. So, instead of ranting at the ref for blowing a call, try to remember theres more at stake than a game. Instead of hitting someone after the whistle or getting so enraged that injuring the guy in the other uniform seems a worthy option, try to remember theres more at stake than a game. Instead of standing triumphantly over a vanquished foe, trumpeting themselves at the expense of someone else, try to remember theres more at stake than a game. So many are watching. Given the huge importance we place on what happens in our stadiums and arenas, sports are again positioned, just as they were after 9/11 and other national horrors, to help us uncover some meaningful purpose to a n u tterly senseless tragedy. Lets not waste it this time. Theres no doubting the power of sports to lift people up, to inspire us to greater heights, to bring us together as one. T heres no doubting the power of sports to console the grieving, to comfort the ailing, to make it easier to move on when we can barely find the strength for our next breath. Sports is one of the most effective consolations for people dealing with grief, said Ron Marasco, a professor atL oyola Marymount University who has written a book on dealing with loss. In the earlys tages of grief, isolation and loneliness are the b iggest problems. That shared communal experie nce of sports is actually a very healthy thing. J ust look at what Cruz, a receiver for the New York Giants, did during Sundays game in Atlanta against the Falcons. He was the favorite player of Jack Pinto, one of those whose life ended on what shouldve been just another day at school, such a hero to the child that his family planned to bury him Monday in one of Cruzs No. 80 jerseys. R.I.P. Jack Pinto, Cruz wrote on his playing shoes, along with Jack Pinto, my hero and This one is for you. It didnt really matter that the Giants played one of their worst games of the season, losing 34-0. Such is the power of sports. ith a family facing that much tragedy, you want to be someone that inspires them, someone that can put a smile on their face at a time where its tough to do that, Cruz said after a loss on the field but a win in life. That said, sports must do more. Lets have a serious discussion about all that is wrong with the games we play. The misplaced priorities. The sense of life and death when nothing could be further from the truth. And, especially, the nastiness and hatred it stirs from deep within our souls. Sport can help lead us down a better path Jingle Bell Run resultsPage 4B See LP, Page 4B See SPORT, Page 4B Associated PressORLANDO Glen Davis scored 28 points and J.J.

C M Y K Not long after Cruz played with a heavy heart, we got a sampling of that other side on Twitter. Some used social media to dole out racist vitriol against Obama while demonstrating how utterly meaningless their own lives must be, since they apparently thought the first quarter of the San Francisco-New England game was more important than a presidents stirring words in Newtown. One of the tweets was reportedly sent by Bradley Patterson, a walk-on long snapper who joined North Alabamas NCAADivision II football team during the season, though he never actually played. Now, he wont get the chance; the school said he was no longer welcome on the team, even as a blocking dummy in practice. While those such as Patterson, who were actually willing to type out their ugly thoughts in 140 characters or less, make up a very small minority, there was surely a much greater number muttering to themselves about missing their football while Obama spoke, totally oblivious to the suffering in Connecticut. Thats why its time for all of us to look in the mirror, to not let another tragedy pass without some meaningful change. So, instead of punching someone in the face down at the local bar because they trash-talked your favorite team, try to remember theres more at stake than a game. Instead of posting a vile tweet about a coachs mental capacity because you think he made the wrong call, try to remember theres more at stake than a game. Instead of screaming an obscenity at an 18-year-old kid because he dropped a pass or threw an interception, try to remember theres more at stake than a game. This is not in any way suggesting we shouldnt strive for triumph as much as we ever did. Celebrate it, too. Life has always been about the Ws and the Ls. But we can play nice, or at least nicer. That would be the best way for sports to remember Newtown.

Thomas then snared a turnover and went on her own break for a score to close out the quarter with Lake Placid up a comfortable 22-6.

They got more game experience and we were also able to work on some things. Corley, Gayle and Coyne started off the second quarter with scores to push the lead to 28-6 before Roye split one-of-two at the line. Corley and Gobourne then each hit one-of-two themselves, but Thomas went on a six-point run of her own to cut the lead to 30-13. But the Dragons scored the last six with Williams hitting a leaner in the paint, Kyana Boden powering inside for two and Teachout getting out on a fast break to make it 3613 at the half. Things played out evenly in the third, with both squads netting seven points. Katelynne Reed had four of those for Lake Placid, while Teachout notched a three-point play on a drive and a foul. Thomas scored four for the Tigers and assisted on the other bucket to freshman Laice Varnum, with Maliyah Bell hitting a free throw at the end of the period to make it a 43-20 game. And though there was little doubt as to the outcome, Alex Coyne erased whatever there was of any Tiger comeback when she opened the fourth with a three-pointer. Thomas answered with a long two and then scored to answer a Gayle free-throw. Adelrose Jerome, though, got in the paint and put the finishing touches on the win with a floater to make it four in a row for Lake Placid. ere on a bit of a roll since the Avon Park win, coach Coyne said.

Along the south side of t he building is a row of neatly trimmed boxwood framed with giant green liriope and variegated schefflera. A large crepe myrtle sits on t he corner of the lot. An area on the north side of the building holds an arrange-m ent of boxwood,schefflera,giant liriope,Mexican p etunia,plumbago and blue daze. A sago palm greets visitors as they enter thep arking area. An East palatka holly tree is filled with red berries in time for C hristmas. Two large containers containing ficus t rees sit beside the front doors. A layer of cypress mulch helps inhibit weed growth and aids in retaining mois-t ure to the plants. It has taken years of trial and error planting to achieve the design that you see today. The building sits largely u nnoticed on the corner of A noka Avenue and Walnut S treet. The company owns the laundromat and car wash d irectly behind on Walnut Street. They do accounting w ork and prepare tax returns,own rental property a nd hold the Papa John P izza franchise for H ighlands County. The Founders Garden Club feels that businesses, as well as residents of the city,deserve recognition for their efforts in making Avon P ark a place that people will want to visit.

There was such a nice turnout to decorate the float and the end result was really impressive. Too bad people didnt get to see it. Judy Muse was in control and she could be proud of the job. The Lake Placid Christmas Parade is always something to see especially for a small town; people come from far and wide to view it. However,this year it had to be postponed. The boat was supplied by the Lake Placid Marine,many thanks. The Military Soup and Sandwich Dec. 9 was well attended. Philly cheese beef sandwiches,french onion soup and chicken noodles soup was enjoyed by 139 people and so were the Christmas cakes. This time of the year the Military Committee is busy sending gifts.

Carol Noel,our Sunshine person,gave the illness report and we have Sandra Humpries,Jack Schricker and Nancy Schricker in the hospital. Fred Filipettos wife,Jane,passed away. Hope our greeting cards let them know that they are in our thoughts and prayers. There were two people for us to sing Happy Birthdayto this morning.

C M Y K All of our lives we have spent putting out fires.T hese fires were started by our perfectionism and our procrastination. Along with panic of these fires come the squeals of martyrdoma nd yells of dissatisfaction. We have all done this and it is our family who have had listen to it. Why do we torture our f amily with hurtful words? I can tell you why.You are so stressed out and feeling likea martyr. This has got to stop. I can help you get rid of the stress,but it us up toy ou to curb those angry words. The first steps is to f ollow our directions for your routines,getting dressed to shoes,hair andf ace. It is up to you to change y our attitude toward your family. Once you change your martyred outlook to one of blessing your family and giving teachingm oments,you will see a change in them. I know that y ou dont believe me,but you can only change yourself. It is by your examplet hat your family will begin to help and support your e fforts to secure a peaceful home. What does your wicked t ongue do to your children, your husband and most of all you? It doesnt tell them you love them.It makes them feel less than; it hurtst heir self-worth. They feel that they have no say in things. It makes your husband feel that he is married to his mother. I dont evenw ant to go there. They feel like servants,instead of f amily members. Those harsh words are w orse than a whipping. You cut your family out of the conversational loop. The family cant even say what is on their mind becauset hey are afraid of you. Home life is based on the fear of not making mother mad. Your family members hide from you. Theyb ecome afraid to tell you when something happens. After those words have come from your lips,just how do you feel then? Do you feel laden with guilt or do you even realize you are barking nasty remarks their way. Oblivious to the torture you have inflicted upon your loved ones. There is absolutely no excuse for this. I dont want to hear that this is the only way I can get my family to do anything. This is the lie that you tell yourself to not feel guilty. It is time to forgive yourself and then ask them to forgive you. Many times in our lives we are faced with things that are difficult. As sidetracked people we allow our perfectionism to hurt us and our children. We just do not know that is what is causing us to be raving banshees. Now you have a chance to change by taking actions. You may not have known how to change in the past but you are learning. Take these words into your heart and forgive yourself. You know the things you have said. This can be the beginning of a new relationship with your family. I would like to suggest that you start writing your feelings down too. Not just the pain you are feeling but how you can change. First you have to forgive yourself. You are just learning these things; the more you write the more you will discover about yourself. You are not expected to be perfect. Love yourself enough to take these words and go forward from here. T his is not the end but the beginning of a new life. A fter you forgive yourself and get in touch with your own feelings; then you can ask for forgiveness. My heart goes out to you. Myp rayers are with you and your whole family. Y ou can do this; you found us because you were looking for a change iny our life. You are willing to make changes. Y our tongue can criticize or it can encourage. The choice is all yours. If youh ave not changed your attitude,then how can you expect to see a change in t hem. It has to come from the heart. If not they will s ee right through you. They may not even believe it at first,because you will not be sounding like the mother that have been used to ally our life. The children may think the aliens have taken their real mother away. Prove to them and their father that you have changed.Sprinkle your words of love,encour-a gement and teaching,all over your home. A pologize for your tongue. Dont play the martyr game anymore. No one loves a martyr. Not even you. I t time to FLY without the guilt; forgive yourself.

Last summer I started having an affair with Jordan,the father of my first child. He left me when our daughter was a year old and has been engaged for three years in an on-again,off-again relationship. I could give you excuses about why the affair started up again,but the truth is we both knew it was wrong and continued to do it anyway. I never stopped loving him and I thought it would bring him back to me. Today I found out from Jordans fiancee that they have set their wedding date for next spring. She said they would like for me to come. As if it wouldnt be painful enough to go to the wedding,his fiancee has also asked me to do her hair for the occasion. (Im a hairstylist.) Abby,Jordan and I are still having an affair. I want to tell her,but I dont want him to hate me. I believe this wedding is a big mistake for many reasons,not just the obvious. Please give me some outside advice. Cant Help Myself in Ohio Dear Cant:O K,the first thing to do is wake up, smell the coffee and accept that resuming the sexual relationship with Jordan has not had the desired effect. He WILL be marrying someone else. Next,concentrate on saving yourself and waste no more of your time on him that is,if you would like a permanent,monogamous relationship with someone. Jordan has given you ample proof that he is incapable of being faithful to one woman. And last,tell his fiancee that you do not plan to attend the wedding or do her hair because you are in love with Jordan and have been sleeping with him since last summer. Dear Abby: I have known my husband for seven years and I love him very much,but I am no longer in lovwith him. Somehow along the way the spark has fizzled. We have a wonderful family and have been through so much together. I dont want a divorce. I want to make our marriage work, and so does he. So how do I get my spark back? Sparkless in Texas Dear Sparkless: That you and your husband want your marriage to work means it is capable of being resuscitated. While you didt give any details,it is possible that you have been through so muchthat it didnt allow you to concentrate on each other. Exhaustion and distraction can cause a spark to fizzle. A way to reignite it would be to spend more time alone together,participate in activities you both enjoy,and make time on a regular basis to talk,relax and touch each other. And if necessary,enlist the services of a licensed marriage c ounselor. Dear Abby: My sister relinquished custody of her kids in a divorce 30 years ago. I recently made contact with them to re-establish lost ties. The contact I made with the daughter has beena wonderful success. The other resulted in complete and understandable rejection. Now my sister,who didt want to open the door, blames me for her heartache because her son rejected her. Was I wrong for bringing at least one of them back into the family? Sister in the South Dear Sister:Because you did it over your sisters objections,I think you were. While the daughter seems interested in establishing contact at least for now your sister has now losther son TWICE. And if the daughter eventually backs off,your sister will be zero for two.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Wednesday, December 19, 2012 W hen I worked in Montana,I lived in the high Rocky Mountains and there were large ranches everywhere.
