According to the arrest report,the shooting occurred about 1 a.m. Friday on the sidewalk next to 755 LemonA ve. Thomas had what appeared to be a gun wound to the face,and died while on the way to the hospital. When the police arrived,the victim lay in a pool of his ownb lood,the arresting report said. W itnesses told law enforcement,that Collins approached Thomas on the sidewalk and confronted him about money Thomas owed him. Before Thomas could respond,C ollins allegedly shot Thomas in the face before he could speak about the money issue. The report recommends a charge of pre-meditated murder because Collinsi s said to have shot Thomas without giving him a chance to respond.

A time for thrills,fun and entertainmentd uring the 2013 Highlands County Fair and Livestock Show.The annual e vent draws thousands each year for fun and friendly competition. Reithoffer Shows has been putting t ogether the fair at the Midway for more than 20 years adding new rides a nd activities with each passing year.

Collins B y SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Gingerlee Mitchelllindo sat calmly in her yard Tuesday morning speaking mostly to herself. Unlike the countless other mornings when the 503 E. Center Ave. property owner would directly confront city officials and construction workers,this morning Mitchelllindo could not do much of anything. Excavation Point Inc. arrived at Mitchelllindos property early Tuesday morning; before the Sebring Middle School tardy bell had even rang. The demolition team composed of approximately five Excavation Point workers waited calmly in the crisp,cool morning until all the students had crossed Center Avenue and were safely on the school grounds. The workers were approached by Mitchelllindo in the same manner she approaches anyone who trespasses on her property. I told them what was going on and that this may cause them more harm than good down the road in the future ... They just said they were here to do their jobs, Mitchelllindo said. Lee Tolar of Sebrings Building and Zoning Department arrived next. Tolar explained he was sent by City Administrator Scott Noethlich to document and take photos of the demolition. No other city officials were present Tuesday. Tal Rancourt,owner of Excavation Point Inc., was in and out throughout the morning,overseeing and giving directions for the project. Rancourt was careful not to speak to Mitchelllindo Tuesday, only directing questions through Tolar when necessary. The fencing was the first to go. Workers cut the chain link fence away from the concrete wall and steel piping with a saw.The piping was also cut and pulled out. A backhoe was used to knock down each pillar of the wall and the base, which sat just on the sidewalk. Both walls,on Orange Street and Center Avenue, were demolished around the property as well as the sidewalks. --According to Tolar, Rancourt and Excavation Point will add new sidewalks that will be ADA approved.

According to Florida Highway Patrol reports,Dakota S. Keys,21,of Sebring was driving a 2013 Kia Soul south on County Road 17,just south of Tranquility Lane at about 1:17 p.m. For unknown reasons,Keys failed to maintain a single lane and drove into the northbound lane and into the path of the 1991 Mazda Miata being driven by Beck,58. The front right of the Soul struck the front of the Miata. After impact,both vehicles began to rotate before coming to a final rest. Beck worked at the News-Sun in 2011,servicing accounts in Lake Placid. 1 killed in car crash No confrontations, but Internet postings promised News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS Sitting in her yard with camera in hand, Gingerlee Michelllindo records while a demolition crew from Excavation Point tears down the wall surrounding her home at 503 E.

It could be something you hand out to people as they come on council,CouncilorG arrett Anderson said. Palm Beach County is looking for an ethics commissioner,Buhr told the council. Some cities hadc odes of conduct in place,but many did not. How about I do a draft, Buhr said. es,Heston replied, just dont make it real thick. I charge by the page, s aid Buhr,to general laughter.

Also entert aining the crowd of nearly 500 were Tommy Brandt and Kendall Onheiser. The crowd was larger than expected, flowing over to the outside, but the cold temperat ures didnt dwindle the numbers. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING We talk a lot,but take n o action,Steve Nyhan said. He is the new president and CEO of the Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce,and he w as reflecting the general sentiment of chamber members,he said. Members want to impact the community,Nyhan said. Following that direction,Nyhan is o rganizing a series of brain-storming sessions,bringing people from related businesses together to develop solutions to problems,and spark the local economy. For example,bankers,brokers and build-i ng contractors met Monday for lunch each participant paying his or her way. N yhan had a specific proposal for the group to consider Adopt-a-School. I n the draft outlining the program, Nyhan wrote it was not about giving money. The voluntary program focuses on relationships. He wrote its about provid-i ng role models for students,expanding their awareness of possibilities,and showing the relevance of the subjects studied to the adult world. A strong public school system is basic t o the health and growth of a community, Nyhan told the chamber members. Quality schools attract people (and businesses) to the area. H e emphasized this kind of interaction required commitment and active involvem ent over time. School Superintendent Wally Cox said, re raising kids,not teaching in our s chools. You have no idea how much were controlled by the state and federal government. He added parents impacted on their childrens behavior,that many parentsv alued education,but not all of them. In those cases what was mostly missing was a work ethic. Kids with a good work ethic can succeed with help and support,Cox said. Mentoring is key in helping those students. N yhan added,re not asking for a commitment of resources,but of time ande ffort. The Adopt-a-School program suggests a number of activities a business can do with a school from displaying student art in the office to sponsoring a speciali nterest club. A special breakfast to bring nonprofit organizations together for a brain-storming session is being held at the Golf Club Island View restaurant from 8:30-9:30a .m. on Tuesday.All non-profit organizations are welcome. The meal costs $8. RSVP at 385-8448.

This advisory body speaks and advises the commissioners on matters of natural resource protection, environmental clearances, and the stewardship of conservation efforts undertaken by,in,and for Highlands County. The board is currently interested in applicants from the following discipline:Agricultural,which represents occupations or sufficient educational credentials related to any of the following:commercial farm,forestry,fishery activities,agri-business, agri-sciences,or agricultural research or education. Highlands County is fortunate to have many volunteers who serve on various boards and committees. The act of volunteering is considered an altruistic activity,which simply means a selfless concern for the welfare of others. Volunteering is intended to promote good or improve human quality of life. Government itself cannot solve all the nations challenges. Volunteerism is a means to assist organizations with the issues they face with time,expertise and knowledge. NRAC meets at the Bert Harris Agriculture Center the last Wednesday of every month at 4 p.m. for approximately one and a half hours. If interested in serving, contact Corine Burgess at 402-6545 or e-mail cburgess@hcbcc.org.

T he invasive snakes killed in the Everglades are processed and logged by U niversity of Florida researchers who examine e ach one hoping to learn more about the elusives pecies. No one knows for sure how many pythons live in South Florida. Wildlife officials say eradicating pythons from theE verglades was never the goal of the challenge.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Highlands County SheriffsO ffice continues to receive numerous complaints from residents regarding fraudulent charges on debit and credit cards. In most of thec ases the victim is still in possession of the debit or credit card however during some transaction the card number has been captureda nd subsequently used for unauthorized purchases. Card numbers can be skimmedby placing a device on the card readers such as at gas stations orA TMs however it is also possible for thieves to get t his information from point of sale terminals in any retail establishment that acceptsc redit or debit cards. Banks and financial instit utions that issue debit and credit cards watch carefully for uncharacteristic use and possible common purchase points for fraud. In turn theyn otify their customers and law enforcement so appropria te action can be taken as soon as possible. In an effort to limit your losses to unauthorized debit or credit card use,please con-s ider the following suggestions: Check your credit card statements as soon as you receive them. Report ANYc harges that you did not make,even if the charge is minimal. Sometimes that small charge is a test and if it goes through,additional larg-e r charges will appear on future statements. Review your debit card use regularly. Some financial institutions participate in notification programs thatw ill send you an email or text message when your debit c ard has been used. This may be helpful in identifying breaches in a timely mannera nd keep you from unnecessary losses. When purchasing gas at retailers with numerous pumps such as large convenience stores,opt for pumps that are in direct view of thec lerks inside the store. Activity around these pumps i s more likely to be noticed by store personnel thus people planting skimmingd evices usually chose more remote pumps to tamper with. Go inside the convenience store to make yourc redit card payment. Most skimming devices are recovered from the pumps themselves. By using the terminals inside the store you min-i mize your chance for theft. The easiest way not to become a victim of credit card skimming is to pay cash for purchases made at loca-t ions subject to this type of activity such as convenience stores,gas stations and restaurants. Early detection of this activity is the best way tol imit any losses. Once again, if you see charges on your a ccount that you did not make,report them to your financial institution immedi-a tely as well as to law enforcement. Checking your c redit report with one of the three credit reporting companies,Experian,Trans Union and Equifax,is also recommended. I f you would like more information on this subject, c ontact Highlands County Sheriffs Office Crime Prevention Specialist NellH ays at 402-7369. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, February 6, 2013Page 3A MARTIAL ARTS (pp care, rhp, top; 00027030 DR.

Fair opens Friday By GARY FINEOUT A ssociated PressTALLAHASSEE New documents a re raising questions about whether Florida legislators ignored rules intended to prevent political parties and incumbents from influencing the oncea-decade process of redistricting. E mails show that top Republican Party of Florida officials met in late 2010 to brainstormredistricting with political consultants and legislative employees involved in drawing new dis-t ricts for Congress and the Legislature. That was just a few weeks after voters o verwhelmingly adopted the Fair D istrictsconstitutional amendments that set new standards for redistricting and were intended to remove partisans hip from the politically charged job of creating new maps. The Associated Press requested the documents after they were presented ina court hearing last week. Several g roups have filed lawsuits seeking to have a court throw out the maps eventually adopted for both Congress and the Florida Senate. That court battle has sparked a tug-ofw ar over who should be required to testify and what documents should be p resented in court. A bid to force legisl ators and legislative staff to turn over information is currently before an appeals court. But what has emerged is a batch of documents that consist mainly of emails among Florida political consultants including some who were getting paidb y the Republican Party.The emails show how the consultants routinely traded redistricting information,and how it would potentially affect Republican incumbents. B ut some emails show legislative employees exchanging information with t hese same consultants. Sheriffs Office warns about continuation of debit/credit card fraud Emails raise questions about redistricting

C M Y K The management ethic at t he Florida Department of Environmental Protection under the leadership of former shipyard executive Herschel Vinyard is a tri-u mph of message over substance:If you keep saying that you are protecting thee nvironment,you dont actually have to do it. Thus,Herschel has surr ounded himself with a cadre of executives who formerly made a living helping industries avoid DEP regulations. And in a master stroke, t he department has laid off 58 veteran employees who were apparently too serious about doing their jobs. The layoffs,DEP press s ecretary Patrick Gillespie told the Tampa Bay Times presumably without blushing,were not political,but rather to ensure that staffing levels are reflectedb y workloads and supporting the mission of protecting the e nvironment. Rubbish. Under Gov. Rick Scott, environmental regulation and the protection of Floridasm uch abused water resources has become a joke. Scott has gutted growth management laws,fought off federal water quality regulations,s tripped the water management districts of funding and,now,purged the DEP of its most senior and experienced regulators. They want to essentially t urn the agency over to the regulated industries,Jerry P hillips,former DEP attorney,told the Times Mission accomplished. The Department of Environmental Posturing isf unctioning precisely as Scott intends,and it will continue to do so until Floridians begin to elect politicians who are stewardso f the environment,not stooges for industry and developers.

How did you know it was my birthday? our birth date is public information its listed on your voter registration card. But thats not important. What is important is that Im here to help you. Help me? e feel its time for you to upgrade your computer,Tom. Its taking you forever to surf through the Web sites you visit. ou know which Web sites I visit? Of course. Not long ago, America Online got into trouble for releasing such information. We had a good laugh when we learned your favorite search terms are: Madonna,bikini,before she turned 40. This,sir,is an outrage. re just trying to help. Incidentally,that 27-year-old flight attendant you met in the online chat room? What of her? s 64 and married. ou have no right to t get excited,Tom. According to the free blood pressure clinic you visited you remember filling out that card, dont you? your blood pressure is awfully high. ou know my blood pressure? Of course. There are lots of ways to get that information now. Didnt you know that security cameras and other devices mounted in public places are now able to check vital signs? My vital signs! Absolutely. Some surveillance systems can identify you by how you walk. And special programs can track your eye movements. Retailers use them to get a better idea of what shoppers are looking for. ou cant be serious. As serious as a heart attack, Tom. Which is why you ought to cut back on the corn chips. Do you really need to eat three bags a week? ou track my corn chip purchases? That discount card the grocery store gave you is quite revealing. Incidentally,you forgot to redeem your coupon on the free devils food cake. Ill send another if youd like. What youre doing is surely against the law! Law? There are no laws to prevent us from knowing about you. Everything you buy with your credit or debit card is incredibly easy for us to track and most of the things we do to track you are legal. They are? es,and every time you fill out any form,your personal information is stored in computers and shared with goodness only knows who. ithout my permission? Of course. And did you know that your Social Security number has more than 40 congressionally approved uses? You cant drive, vote,apply for a job or open a bank account without revealing that number. Thats a godsend to people like us. But this is immoral! A typical statement from a 50year-old,single,middle-class Catholic conservative who tends to vote Republican. Have you no shame,sir? Im not the one who is 12 months overdue at the library on How to Win Over Women and Influence Courtship. ll report you to the press. Thats a good one,Tom. The press is eager to criticize the government for monitoring phone calls and wire transfers,when there are hundreds of other threats to privacy that the press hardly ever talks about. Then Congress must write new laws to protect us. Thats an even better one,Tom. In the electronic global village in which we all now exist,technology is moving so rapidly that no law can keep up with it. The only way you can protect your privacy is to stop giving out ID numbers,stop using computers and stop using your credit cards." I cant afford that kind of inconvenience. Neither can I,Tom. Which brings us back to the reason I called. I have some products to help you upgrade your computer. There are only two things I want from you:your name and phone number. Sorry,but I cant give you that information. That information is private.

C M Y K By KATE BRUMBACK and JAY REEVES A ssociated PressM IDLAND CITY,Ala. An Alabama family celebrated the rescue of a 5-year-old held hostage for a week in an underground bunker asa uthorities painstakingly checked for bombs on the abductors property Tuesday,a day after a police raid left the man dead. T he FBI and other law enforcement officials left plenty of questions open about how they made the call to rush in and what happened inside the closet-sized hide-o ut on the rural property, where the boy had been held b y Jimmy Lee Dykes. But relatives said there was no question about the relief theyf eel. If I could,I would do c artwheels all the way down the road,the bos greataunt,Debra Cook,told ABCs Good Morning America on Tuesday a dayb efore the bos 6th birthday. d all been walking a round in a fog. She said the boy was happy and playing with his old toys,i ncluding a dinosaur. He was having the biggest time, C ook said. School officials said at a news conference Tuesdayt hat they planned to have a party to celebrate the bos birthday,which is W ednesday,though they had not yet set a date for the p arty. The celebration,likely at the high school football field,would also honor the memory of Charles Albert Poland Jr.,the bus driver credited as a hero for hisa ctions to keep nearly two dozen other children on the bus safe when Dykes boarded to abduct the boy. Principal Phillip Parker s aid his colleagues were eagerly awaiting the bos return,though he did not know when that would be. d love to have him b ack tomorrow,he said. Parker stands at the entrance to the school every day as the children arrive, and described the boy as a friendly,energetic child whoc omes up,shakes his hand and then continues on into t he school as if hes in a hurry. After FBI agents determ ined that talks with an increasingly agitated Dykes w ere breaking down,they stormed the shelter Monday afternoon and freed the kindergartner. The 65-yearold armed captor was killedb y law enforcement agents, an official told The A ssociated Press on condition of anonymity because the official wasnt authorizedt o speak publicly about the investigation into the case t hat had captured national attention. Dale County Coroner W oodrow Hilboldt said Tuesday that officials had not yet removed Dykesbody f rom the underground shelter. Hilboldt said he does not k now how Dykes died because he has not yet examined the body. Hilboldt said the body will be taken to Montgomery for an autopsy, though he did not knowe xactly when that may happen. Meanwhile,federal authorities were tight-lipped about specifics of how theye nded the standoff. Neighbors said they heard a bang and gunshots,but the FBI wouldnt confirm that. Authorities also kept underw raps exactly how they were able to monitor Dykes and the boy in such a confined space. e have a big crime scene behind us to process,s aid FBI agent Steve Richardson of the agencs o ffice in Mobile. I cant talk about sources,techniques or methods that we used. But Ic an tell you the success story is (the boy) is safe. D ale County Sheriff Wally Olson said Dykes was armed when officers entered the bunker. He added the boy was threatened,but declinedt o elaborate. Thats why we went i nside to save the child, he said. It was not immediately c lear how authorities determined the man had a gun. T he boy was reunited with his mother and taken to a hospital to be checked out.O fficials have said he has Aspergers syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivit y disorder. Richardson said he saw the c hild at the hospital,and the boy was laughing,joking, eating and doing the things youd expect a normal 5or 6-year-old to do. T he rescue capped a hostage drama that disrupted the lives of many in a tranquil town of 2,400 people set amid peanut farms and cotton fields some 100 miles southeast of the state capital ofM ontgomery. at 471-6227,ext. 22697.

News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Joy Donglasan puts her all into this serve Monday as the Lady Blue Streaks opened the tennis season in impressive fashion over visiting Hardee. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comS EBRING Turnover is the annual norm in high school athletics, with student-athletes moving up,m aking their mark and graduating. R eplacing them is always the trick, especially when a n umber of athletes on a given team have moved on. F ortunately for the Lady Blue Streak tennis team, while they do have big shoes to fill, it is just one pair as last years No. 1 singles player, Kaley Walter, was alone in graduating from this seemingly eternally youthful squad. And so the team hit the ground running Monday with a 7-0 sweep of visiting Hardee with many familiar names, just shuffled around a little bit. Nisha Patel took over the No. 1 singles spot and didnt miss a beat, nor many shots, in a 6-0, 6-0 win over LadyW ildcat Ashley Baker. Joy Donglasan didnt miss much either, moving up to No. 2 singles and taking a 6-0 6-1 win over Carroline Durrance and, while Kelly B roen had a bit of a tougher test in her new spot at No. 3, s he prevailed over Madison Burnett by a 6-4, 6-3, s traight-set score. Some nagging injuries last season caused some spot shifting that saw all the girls compete at various seeds, so this varsity team returns not only largely intact, but with valuable experience throughout the line-up. Morgan Heston showed that to certainly be the case with a 6-1, 6-0 win over Katie Smith at No. 4, and Micaela DeVane was nearly Lady Streaks sweep into season By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comAnother year, another district title for Avon Park wrestling as the Red Devils rolled to their second straight District 7-1Atitle at Frostproof Saturday. In what has become almost r outine in the short history of the Avon Park program, a host of grapplers moved on with top-four finishes to this weekends Region 2-1Acompetition at Tenoroc. As a team, the Devils easily outdistanced the secondplace Highlanders of Lake Wales, 142-107.5, with none of the other five schools able to break 100. After strong performances throughout the day, eight Avon Park wrestlers had made their way into their respective title matches, with one more reaching the match for third. Just by reaching those matches, all nine had guarant eed a spot in Tenoroc. William Colon, in the 152pound weight class, saw a big comeback from McKeel Academys Connor Baerhold that lead to a pin in the waning seconds of the final period, forcing Colon to settle for fourth. The Devils then saw Kenneth Egan, 106-pounds, Johnny Baldridge, 126, Charles Bernard, 132, Dylan Brown, 220, and Wyatt Page all finish second in their weight classes, while Dre N eely, 113, Jose Torres, 120, and Delroy Blake all capped off the day with final-match wins for first place. With nine headed to Regionals, three previous state qualifiers among them, a nother trip to State seems well within reach for Avon Park. Which would keep the Devils streak intact of getting at least one wrestler to the arena floor of The Lakeland Center in each year of the programs existence. Red Devils roll to Regionals Sebring7H ardee0 See STREAKS, Page 5B B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Their two leading scorers were saddled with foul trouble and riding the pines. T he deficit to Mulberry was three after the first quarter and Lake Placid could well have been stari ng their season ender in Mondays opening game of t he District 10-4A T ournament at Avon Park. But thats when the trials and tribulations of a long season kicked in and brought the Dragons together in their 67-56 win. e finally played as a team, senior guard Heath Harris said. We finally decided that we didnt want to play for ourselves and actually play to win. That, and the refs were whistle happy so we quit taking 3s and started driving in to get some foul calls. That certainly was the case as after trailing 16-13 after one, Lake Placid and Mulberry both spent the bulk of the second quarter at the free throw line. And while the two teams matched each others freethrow totals, with six each, the Dragons were perfect at the line while the Panthers went just 6-of-16. Senior Jonah Brown asserted himself with eight points in the period, four from the line and on a floater to go with a steal and score. S cott Colley added a drive to the rim as well, late in the period before Mulberrys Jarius Garner h it two freebies and Tyrik Johnson hit a three-pointer j ust before the half, the P anthers only basket of the period, to take it into the break tied at 25-25. But the third saw Lake Placid really kick it up a notch, with Harris and Colley getting early scores to offset a pair of Rashad Parrish inside baskets. After a Harris teardrop flitted through the net, Garner put back his own miss, with Colley answering with a short jumper. Johnson drove for two to keep things even, but the Dragons would close the period on a 9-0 run. Brown converted on a spinning drive, Harris sank another floater off the glass before Brown hit one from the outside for a three and then drove to the glass to put Lake Placid up 42-33. Dragons adjust, get Tourney win News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE H eath Harris and the Green Dragons stepped it up Monday night to top Mulberry in the District 10-4A Tournament opener at Avon Park. Lake Placid67Mulberry56 See LP, Page 5B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE DeSoto graduate Kolby Lipe stands her ground to field this sharp grounder to third Saturday in SFSCs split with Seminole. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK This was the truest test of the early season for the Lady Panthers, taking on defending state champion Seminole State in a Saturday doubleheader. And while the 10-6 loss in the opener showed there are still some things to clean up, the 4-1 win in the nightcap showed that this South Florida squad will get back up off the canvas. eah, we lost 10-6, assistant coach Heather Barnes said. But we had six earned runs, they only had three. Which points out both the positive and negative. Take the errors away and the Panthers prevail, but the fact that there were five errors leading to those seven unearned Raider runs shows the other side of the coin. Up 1-0, South Florida had one of those innings in the third where a little mistake ballooned into five runs for Seminole. The Panthers clawed back with two in the fourth, one in the sixth and two in the seventh, but the Raiders tacked on two Lady Panthers make statement See SFSC, Page 5B SFSC6,4Seminole10,1

FTA Heartland February Activities Highlands Hammock offers many trails for running and hiking as dominant with a 6-2, 6-0 win over Selma Macias. In the pair of doubles matches, Patel and Donglasan teamed up for a 6-1, 6-0 win over Baker and Durrance, while Broen and Heston won out over Burnett and Macias, 6-3, 6-2. An impressive debut to the schedule for this now seasoned Sebring squad that is primed to turn in another stellar season. Though they faced what could be a tough early testT uesday with a trip to L akeland. See Fridays News-Sun for the recap and results. Continued from 1B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Kelly Broen follows through on a backhand in her win at No. 3 singles Monday. Streaks start strong Over the final eight minutes, Mulberry would make a few pushes, but couldnt get closer than seven the rest of the way. The final time it was under double digits, after an Austin Epps follow put it at 62-54, Harris scored on the break, freshman Justin Mason powered in underneath and then split a pair at the line to put it out of reach and move the Dragons forward. e had to change the game plan, with both Anfernee (MunningsN ick (Tuason) out with foul t rouble, first-year head coach John Million said. We came out after halftime with the mindset to come together and play the full game. The kids did that, they outhustled them and everyone played hard. We were outside a lot at first, but had to change our philosophy and take it to the hoop, he continued. They did that and hit their free throws and Im proud of their effort tonight. The win set up a Tuesday night meeting with the host and top-seeded Red Devils, who got the better of Lake Placid twice during the season. S ee Fridays News-Sun for a recap of the contest. Continued from 1B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Jonah Brown broke the 20-point barrier Monday night to help Lake Placid topple Mulberry. LP comes together at right time each in the fifth and sixth and one more in the seventh to keep themselves ahead the rest of the way. South Florida got two RBI each from Lexi Belardi, who went 2-for-2 with a double, Amanda Byers and Taylor Upchurch. Rayvin Vick went 4-for-4 with three runs scored and Kelly Brown was 3-for-4 with a double. The killer Bs, Belardi, Byers and Brown, kept up their bat work in the second game, totaling four hits and three RBI. And behind a strong pitching performance from Alexis Adams, the defense proved a lot more stolid in limiting Seminole to one scant run though again, it was unearned. Adams scattered six hits, walked one and struck out three to continue her impressive early-season run on the mound. The split moves SFSC to 5-1 after the first week of the regular season, and has a lot of signs pointing toward the positive. So long as those unearned runs can be taken care of. The Lady Panthers take it on the road for their next two games, Saturday at Sante Fe and Tuesday at Lake Sumter, before returning Thursday, Feb. 14, for a Valentines Day doubleheader against Indian River. T he baseball Panthers have had a rough go lately, dropping four straight since last Wednesdays win over Webber. Mondays 7-6 loss to Lake Sumter saw SFSC come back from a 5-0 deficit to take the lead, 6-5, after seven. But two Sumter scores in the top of the eighth provedt oo much for the Panthers to overcome. Former Blue Streaks Evan Lewis and Seth Abeln had two hits and one RBI apiece. South Florida is back in action tonight against Indian River on Panther Field with a 6 p.m. scheduled start time.

C M Y K B y SAMANTHA CRITCHELL AP Fashion WriterNEW YORK Day-tonight dressing doesnt quite cover it for most people. Its more like sunrise to bedtime,and the clothes need to be appropriate and comfortable for the long haul. That means finding a look that blends in enough at business meetings,the bus stop and the coffee shop so the wearer doesnt draw too much attention without giving up personal style. Lisa Axelson,creative director of Ann Taylor, lives the life of so many working women:She balances duties of home,family and career with those things that change every day. orget day-to-night. You dont even have weekday versus weekend, Axelson says. That goes for clothes and lifestyle. There are many people working from home,and they can end up turning a Sunday brunch date into a business meeting,she says. On the flip side,theres the school event scheduled smack in the middle of the workday. She says she has to approach her day in a uniform that,more often than not (at least four days a week!),starts with black, tightly knit ponte pants that have a little Spandex in them. Axelson recently spent a morning at Ann Taylors renovated location in The Westchester shopping mall in White Plains,N.Y., pointing out the styles that she believes are the cornerstone of a womansw ardrobe in 2013. The store is set up like a closet,without a specific suits sectionor all the denim tucked in the back corner. Displays are more likely to be built around a color theme,or a versatile item. Scarves,necklaces and other accessories get prime real estate,though,smack in the middle of the place. Thats not by accident. I will change my accessories several times during the day. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, February 6, 2013Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; movie listings p/u; 00027309 BL ACKCA TSB y JEFF CHEN ACROSS 1 BREAK IN POETRY 8 COSTUMED ANIMAL, PERHAPS 14 SOMETHING MEDIA EXECUTIVES KEEP AN EYE O N? 19 THE HARE, NOTABLY 2 0 ONE ON THE VERGE OF CROAKING? 2 1 PROMPT AGAIN 22 ALLOWED ABOARD 23 MOLECULES IN NATUR AL GAS 24 ACROBAT DEVELOPER 2 5 CHAINS 26 AKE THAT! 2 8 EGG-SORTING DEVICE 30 OFFENSE THATS PROVOKED BY LURID NEWS 31 32 FINE, HAVE IT YOUR WAY! 3 5 DAVIS OF IM NOT RAPPAPOR 3 7 MOM-AND-POP ORGS. 38 SALTY STREAM 40 AFOREMENTIONED 41 NEW ENGLAND S EAFOOD STAPLE 4 3 AUTHOR WHO WROTE A BOUT FRONTIER LIFE 44 45 VEHICLE THATS OUT OF THIS WORLD? 49 PERSON ON TAP? 51 COLD WAR FIGHTERS 52 SHRED 53 VILLAIN IN MANY A FAIRY TALE 5 5 WINGED 5 7 SALON REQUEST 5 9 27-DOWN PREDATORS 6 0 DIAMOND UNIT 62 WATER PARK FEATURE 6 3 SOWED ONES WILD OATS 65 66 ___-DOZEN 70 METALS GIANT IN THE DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE 7 2 MONTERREY CHEDDAR? 7 5 SANITARIUMS 7 7 CHAISE SCENE? 79 VILLAIN IN MANY AN A CTION MOVIE 82 DARKENS 8 3 ___ MATER 84 PAPARAZZI PAYER 86 BIBLICAL RESTING SPOT 88 BASE OF ASTI WINE 89 90 SANDWICH SPEC 91 FIRST RESPONDERS, FOR SHORT 93 POPS POP 94 WHERE THE METS ONCE MET 9 5 BACK-TO-BACK COMPETITIONS? 1 00 ETS 102 DOMINATRIXS WEAR 1 04 105 SAMPLING 1 06 ___ SEA, BODY OF WATER NORTH OF NORWAY 108 IN ITSELF 109 REALLY HURTS 111 MORE POKER-FACED 113 SHOW TIME 1 15 ACT IMPULSIVELY, AS YOUNG LOVERS 116 WITHOUT ANY OOMPH 1 17 MORE DIRTY, AS SANTAS BOOTS 118 HE WROTE ONE STEP FORWARD, TWO STEPS BACK 1 19 DRAMATIST SEAN 120 SWADDLES DOWN 1 IT MAY BE SPOTTED IN A P ET STORE 2 LAST OLDSMOBILES 3 HINDERS 4 WIFE OF WOODY 5 FANCY FLOWER HOLDERS 6 THE PIED PIPER OF HAMELIN, E.G. 7 YEARS ABROAD 8 MISTY CROONER 9 LEIGH HUNT POEM ABOU BEN ___ 1 0 MIDDLE WEIGHTS? 11 TRAFFIC DIRECTOR 1 2 CRY WITH AN ACCENT 13 MOSAIC TILES 14 SCREWBALL CHARACTER ON THE SIMPSONS 15 MOISTENS, IN A WAY 1 6 MAKE THE BILLBOARD CHARTS, SAY 1 7 UNWIELDY BOAT 18 VICTORIAN LEADER? 20 FOURSOME2 7 INK HOLDERS 29 RETURN ADDRESS LETTERS? 32 BONDING MEASUREM ENT 3 3 FEUDAL VASSAL 34 P.M.S AND SUCH:A BBR. 3 6 SIGMOID CURVE 37 IN ON 39 ACTRESS SOMMER 42 4 3 CRY LIKE A FELINE 4 5 PARTICIPANTS IN SOME RIVALRIES, BRIEFLY4 6 GOING RATE? 47 YOURS, IN YPRES 48 NUMBER-CRUNCHERS NUMBERS 49 HWY.

Atm y house,we eat a lot of salad. Asmany of you know,I serve a large green salad with almost every mealthat goes on the table.A ll of those heads of lettuce can add up. So,I recently started looking into some ways to grow my own lettuceindoors and It hought I would share what Im learning with y all. All you need is: A large round pot, a bout six inches deep (or a container of some sortwith r oughly the same depth) Organic potting soil (look for the kind with perlite in it thatsthose little round white balls) Mesclun mix seeds (or whatever lettuce you like b est) Water A sunny window Y oull need a window that gets at least six hours o f sunlight per day.If your lettuce doesnt get enough sun,it will get tall ands pindlyand that isnt what you want. To grow your lettuce: 1 Fill your container to the halfway mark with soil. Y ou can sprinklesome fertilizer on there if you want to. Moisten the soil and sprinklea couple pinches of seeds on top. Sprinkle al ittle more soil over theseeds and spritz the surface with more water. 2. Water daily and keep t he pot in the sun or under a grow light. Theseeds s hould sprout up in about seven days and your first harvestshould be ready ina bout a month. To harvest your lettuce: A fter you cut your lettucethe first time (leave the growing crownsalone), youll only have to wait another two weeks for af resh crop. And its pretty much just t hat easy. Fresh lettuce greens are just the best,arent they? D o you do any indoor gardening? Have any tips t o share? http://www.facebook.com/savingdinner Grow your own lettuce bowl indoors Dear A bby:My boyfriend and I have been seeing each other for about a year. He was a virgin when we met. Three months into the relationship we had sex. I am 18 and he is 21. We used to have sex often,but now he is completely uninterested in anything sexual. I feel like he isnt attracted to me anymore,although I havent changed much since we started dating. Other than sex,we have a great relationship. We havent had a single fight, but it hurts my feelings that he doesnt want to have sex with me anymore. Whats the solution to our problem? Teen in St. George,Utah Dear Teen:Have a frank, non-confrontational talk with your boyfriend and ask him what has changed. It may be that the novelty wore off. He may have a low sex drive,or he may be interested in women only as friends. But you will never know until you ask him. When you do,let him know that whatever his answer is,you care about him and you hope he feels the same way about you. Dear Abby:My 31-yearold daughter,Layla,is beautiful,accomplished and earns a good living. She hasa lot of friends and always has a boyfriend. She has had b oth long-term and shortterm relationships. Layla isnt married and hopes to meet the right person. Im very anxious about it,but this is her life and her choice. People constantly ask,Hos your daughter? Is she seeing anyone?And when I meet someone for the first time who asks about my children,the second question they ask is,Is she married?(They dont ask that about my son.) This is painful for me. What should I say in response to this omnipresent question? Laylas Mom Dear Mom:All you have to do is smile and say:My daughter is single,loves her job and is quite successful. Now tell me about your children. Dear Abby:I have been divorced for eight years. My daughter is learning how to drive. In her mothers car, while under her mothers supervision,she hit their garage door. My ex believes I should pay half the cost of the new garage door. Also,she did a total upgrade,turning the entrance to the garage into one large door instead of two. I say I shouldnt have to pay. She says if it was someone elses house we would pay. I agree,but it is not,and my ex-wife was in the car not me. Who Pays? in California Dear Who Pays?:She pays. It should not be your responsibility to foot half the bill for an upgrade to your es garage door,particularly b ecause she was the one who was with your daughter when the accident occurred. Dont let her bamboozle you. Dear Abby:Im not too tall or too short. Im not overweight or too thin. I never receive comments about my appearance that cause me to be sensitive. My husband doesnt drink,abuse me or stray. I have had no problems through the years with family members,neighbors or co-workers. My grown children are thoughtful,considerate and loving. Even my in-laws love me. So tell me,did you ever receive a letter such as this? Joy in San Diego Dear Joy:Not in recent history.And its probably because people regard my column as a place to dump their troubles rather than share their many blessings, as you have done today.

Dear Abby Associated PressPARIS If it isnt already daunting enough to pack for a trip to fashionable Paris,female visitors,beware:Its illegal to wear pants. So says a law dating from 1800 that has never been taken off the books only relaxed to allow women the comfort of two legs when riding bicycles or horses. French parliamentarians have occasionally pushed for the law to be set aside,and a senator from the opposition UMP party recently asked again for the government to do just that. The Ministry for Womens Rights said what everyone was thinking last week:This law has been superseded by other laws,including the Constitutions commitment to equal rights. But the ministry said it remains on the books as an element of the archives kept by the Paris police. Ann Taylor designer is a fan of all-day dressing Packing for Paris?

Salmon Penne with Green Beans Vinaigrette Warm Halibut Potato Salad Hope everyone enjoyed the big game onS unday. I went to a Super Bowl party that w as hosted by Jim Palmer,one of the guys that I play golf with in the Sunday Lesco points game. It was cool tos pend time with friends in a venue other than a g olf cart. There was chicken on the grill, refreshments in the cool-e r and too many tasty appetizers to describe. T his week I want to write about Mahi Mahi. I have been told it is mosta bundant in the Gulf of Mexico and the world record is 89 pounds. I h ave caught a few of them when I was lucky e nough to go on a charter fishing tour in the Gulf Stream when I lived in Key West. This fish is great b ecause it is mild in flavor and lends itself nicely to lots of different styles of cooking. It is a good fish to put on the grill after an hour in your favorite marinade or youm ight roll it in sesame seeds and pan sear it u ntil you have toasted the seeds and then finish it in the oven. It also makes for an excellent protein for af ish sandwich. Try taking your grilled Mahi Mahi and putting it on a nice roll and top the fish with coleslaw and Wasabim ayo. The mayo is 1 part wasabi paste to 3 parts mayonnaise. Today I have a cool recipe with Mahi Mahi and Fennel that Im sure you will enjoy. Cheers.
