In its new home at the Highlands County YMCA, Heartland Idol drew close to 250 attendees on its first night of the season Thursday.The qualifying round for the junior and teen divisions was jampacked with talent and provided plenty of entertainment for guests. The junior qualifiers included 11 singers each who took the stage to sing their rendition of their chosen song. The junior division was open for contestants ages 12 and younger. A spectrum of songs were thrown out at the crowd including an s pop hit,a classic show tune and of course the most popular soul-singer on the air waves today,Adele. Their voices,though not as strong as their teen counterparts,were enough to grab the attention of the six-judge panel who tallied up their scores quickly and chose the top six semi-finalist:Shelby Stoner,10, Zolfo Springs; Ashdon Dennison,7,Avon Park; Mariah Finney,12,AP; Abigail Smith, 12,Sebring; Kalie Christian, 12,Sebring; and Hailey McDonough,7,Sebring. Those that passed on to the next round were thrilled to have made it to the semi-finals and were given words of encouragement from a few of the judges. ou did a lot of things right. I like that you have stage presence. Youve set the bar and youve won my ear. I like you, long-time judge Larry Moore said of semi-finalist Ashdon Dennison.

Twelve states have joined the union since the club was founded it says. According to the WKC,35 breeds and 1,200 entries took part in the firsts how,held in 1877. About 3,200 entries,competing in 162 breeds a nd varieties,are expected to compete in 2013,including the introduction of two new breeds. There is only one Westminster,and in its long andp restigious experience just about every superlative imaginable has been used to describe the club, (which of the pure bred dog,the clubs ays. The Highlands County Animal Shelter doesnt have the WKCs pedigree,its influence or its money.There are no bright lights or red carpeting. No one wears a tuxedo or long gown. What the shelter does have is as great a variety of breeds,halfbreeds,and wonderfully odd-ball mixes,as any dog show in existence. The shelter is democratic, not elitist. It takes in any stray, no matter how dubious its family lineage. The director of the countys Animal Control department Darryl Scott said,So many different dogs pass through here, Beauties that outshine pampered show dogs N ews-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEYOK,so this hound hasnt mastered posing with county Animal Shelter c aretaker Aubre McAnally just yet. But,what she lacks in the finer points of presentation she makes up for with effort. S pecial to the News-SunT ALLAHASSEE Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton,president of the Florida S heriffs Association,has been appointed to the National SheriffsAssociation Board of Directors. Benton was one of three sheriffs sworn in during the NSA winter conference board meeting on Feb. 2 in Washington,DC. S he joins Beckham County,Okla. Sheriff Scott Jay and Brazos County,Texas Sheriff Christopher Kirk as the newest members of the NSA board. e are extremely proud to have Sheriff Benton represent Floridas Sheriffs at the nationall evel,said FSA Executive Director Steve Casey. The N ational Sheriffs Association is a highly respected organization which elevates issues of public safety to Congress and nationalf orums. We are honored that Florida will continue to have a voice at the national level. Benton brings with her nearly 40 years of experience,eight serving as Highlands County sheriff. Part of her extensive experi-e nce comes from advanced and specialized training in courses from the National Sheriffs Institute and the F.B.Is Enforcement Executive Development Training program. She has a highly successful tenure as a leader and has earned multiple honors and awards. Benton has served as chair for the FSA Board of Directors in addition to holding the positions of treasurer,secretary,vice president and is currently serving a one-year term as FSA president.

D uring the meeting Friday morning,Administrator M ichael Wright said money was a primary worry,as was c oncern that the current department were all part time. This means he said at wo-man team is on duty for an eight-hour day shift,but for the remaining 16 hours,t he community already relied on West Sebring. W right said the dilemma was in choosing the best long-term solution for Sun NL aks future emergency issues. O n the one hand,the district did not have the experie nced manpower to create a purely volunteer fire department,Wright said. The cur-r ent force of 14 paid firefighters mostly work full time for other fire depart-m ents and receive advanced training from them. This s aves the district considerable money.Training volunteers and maintaining stan-d ards would be expensive. Wright said during the m eeting Avon Park City Manager Julian Deleon told h im it costs about $1 million annually to run a full-time fire department,and thatw ould be without any pension costs. There is another option, W right told the supervisors. Talks with Florida Hospital H eartland Division led the hospital to offer land (to which the hospital wouldr etain title) so that a larger emergency complex could be b uilt on Sun N Lake Boulevard east of the first t raffic circle. Eventually,the center would contain county Emergency MedicalS ervices,some kind of firefighter presence and a Highlands County SheriffsO ffice sub-station. The idea,Wright said,and t he supervisors agreed,was to build the new complex with an eye to accommodat-i ng the future,growing into it over time.

Military Ball plans i n full swing N ews-Sun staff reportsARCADIA An Avon P ark man was seriously injured early Saturday morning in a a motorcyclea ccident in Arcadia. According to Florida H ighway Patrol reports, Andrew Dewayne Louis, 20,was driving his 2008K awasaki Ninja southbound on Oak Wood Avenue at around 12:38 a .m. Saturday.

Charges are pending furt her investigation. 1 seriously injured in motorcyle crash Special to the News-SunSEBRING On Wednesday,Highlands County Superintendent of Schools Wally Cox,schoolb oard member Donna Howerton,school principals and key staff met with Sheriff Susan Benton and her law enforcement team along withm embers of the Sebring Police Department to discuss school security issues. Particularly,the sheriff wanted to discuss the ActiveS hooter General Order of the sheriffs office and what the schools could expect from law enforcement should one of the schools get into an active shooter situation. A ccording to public information officers Nell Hayes, t here was thorough discussion among the participants l eading to many questions asked and answered. Leaders vowed to address what improvements to school safety can be achieved and toc oordinate procedures among all schools that will be needed should such an emergency arise. Captain Tim Lethbridge p resented a history lesson of sorts on school shootings, outlining emergency response procedures over time up to the current actives hooter response plans that are currently in place. Sheriff Benton offered the services of her members to help evaluate each campus to assist in creating such plans. F urther,relative to Crime Prevention Through E nvironmental Design (CPTEDformal site evaluations were offered that take i nto consideration proper design and effective use of the environment to lead to a r eduction in crime as well as traditional crime prevention t ools such as fencing and locks. Additional meetings will be held as plans progress. Cox said,d like to thank S heriff Benton for spearheading this collaborative process. Its obvious that the primary concern of the sheriffs office is the same as thato f the School Board; the safety of our students and staff. We will schedule a meeting with the sheriffs core staff to plan for individ-u al school site surveys. Benton said that our get together was extremely valuable; everyone was engaged and willing to put in the time necessary to ensure that wea re all prepared to protect our kids should we be faced with s uch a serious event.

A ssociated PressSTARKE Florida has h osted a five-day national hurricane exercise to test the ability of state,local, federal and private emergency responders to com-m unicate with each other. Operation Radar II ended Friday at the Florida National Guards Camp Blanding Joint TrainingC enter near Starke in north Florida. About 500 participants from across the nation were on hand. The exercise scenario was a double dose o f hurricanes within 10 days one striking F loridas east coast and the other the Gulf Coast. The exercise focused on communications among local,regional,state,fed-e ral and private operations. Gaps in communications systems and networks were evaluated. Also,field communications werea ddressed and determinations made on where to focus future efforts. A similar exercise, Operation Radar I,was held in 2010.

The WKC speaks about a breeds elegance,grace and dignity; Scott and his staff talk about individual dogs and finding them homes. The most important qualities a dog possesses dont have as much to do with sleek bodies or glossy ears,Scott said,as they do with loyalty and willingness to please. Attracted to fluffy lap dogs? Big athletic runners? Or sturdy,even-tempered dogs who dont mind children pulling their ears? Wve got them,Scott said, or will before long. Mixes,he said,often contain the best qualities of several breeds. It isnt difficult to adopt, he added. Come on out. If theres a dog you want,fill out the forms and tell us which veterinarian to take the dog to (to be spayed or neutered),then you go on home. You pick up the animal at the veterinarian. By state law,every dog or cat released from the pound has to be spayed or neutered. They also get de-wormed and vaccinated. They are not released from the pound. The fee for adoption includes the medical costs. A female dog is $85,a male $75. Cat fees are $70 for females,$55 for males. As of Friday there were 60 dogs,50 cats,one rabbit anda chicken looking for homes or a dedicated FFA or 4-H student. Call 655-6475 for more information.

C M Y K Catherine Smith,a graduate student r esident at the Lawrence C. Mill Museum of the Glades,delivered the presentation. She said one of the chal-l enges in learning about the culture and its history is that no written record was left behind. Historians and social scient ists are piecing together the story by using excavated artifacts from burial and h abitation mounds. Archeology,Smith said,is the only way to learn about these early societies. Bobbie C. Billie,the spiritual leader of the Council of the OriginalM iccosukee Simanolee Nation Aboriginal peoples,on the other hand, demanded archeologists stop work. We are responsible for our own culture,he said. There are two major issues regarding archeological excavations:Currenta rcheological methodology is such that an historical site has to be taken apart in o rder to find the story-telling details. Even more sensitive is that many sites are sacred places themselves,or places where human bodies are consecrated. Billie spoke for those who do not wantt heir ancestors disturbed,their artifacts stolen,or their history written by outsiders,he said. We have to admit archeology has a checkered past. M ost people know about the selftaught amateur archeologists from Europe in the 18th and 19th centuries. Men like Howard Carter,who discovered Tutankhamuns tomb,hunted treasure in the name of science,and kept what they found. Thomas Bruce,the 7th Earl of Elgin, is another famous example. He smuggled significant Greek sculpture to England, including friezes removed from the Parthenon in Athens. A few years later h e sold the collection to the British Museum. To this day,the Elgin Marbles remain highly controversial. Greece stillw ants them back. At the same time,the study of early human history is important. Besides b eing a part of Highlands Countys past, the Belle Glades Culture has a lot to t each modern day man about the creative use of resources and living in balance with the natural habitat. There have been improvements in the field,and in how scientists work closerw ith local inhabitants. Congress passed the NativeAmerican Graves Protection and Repatriation Act in 1990,for example,giving native Americans the authority to make decisions about historical sites that involve them,and the United Nations has recog-n ized the need for indigenous peoples to have a right to protect their heritage. T his may seem like a rarefied discussion,but it affects Highlands County. A site in Lake Placid,known as the Blueberry Patch,is being excavated and explored. It is thought it might haveb een a sizable Belle Gades Culture settlement at one time. This means the push and pull between scientific exploration or leaving the dead in peace may affect us here. B oth sides have powerful arguments. We feel,however,we cant walk away from learning. The best way to increase respect for a people is teach others about its contributions and successes. We hope the excavation of the Blueberry Patch continues. We also hope the feelings and beliefs of descendants of the Belle Glade Culture are taken seriously and made a part of the process. Page 4AN ews-SunS unday, February 10, 2013www.newssun.comTO DAYSED ITORIALTODAYSLETTERS Asignifiant different of opinion emerged during the question and answer period following a presentation sponsored recently by the Lake Placid Historical Society. It was about the indigenous people who lived in the area and around Lake Okeechobee roughly between 500 BC and 1500 AD. The people are known collectively as the Belle Glades Culture. EDITORIAL& OPINION On Feb. 5,Sebrings city council approved a project designed to promote fitness, encourage development in thed owntown district and throughout the city,and increase economic growth. The project known as Sebring Trails,Trailheads andB lueways received a unanimous vote. Sebring Trails,Trailheads, a nd Blueways will connect bike trails throughout the city and widen the path of existingt rials to 8 feet. Trailheads at the Sebring Civic Center, V eterans Beach,and other designated locations will provide bike racks,water foun-t ains,benches,and restrooms. Trailheads will provide a s hady rest area for bikers and encourage longer bike rides throughout the city. Two blueways,or canoe routes,will also be provided on LakeJ ackson. Why is Sebring pursuing s uch an ambitious trail project? The council discovered that cities that invested inb ike facilities received economic rewards for their e xpenditures. For example,in North Carolinas Northern Outer Banks,the annual econ omic impact of cyclists was $60 million in 2004. Bicyclists promote economic growth because they typically have a large disposablei ncome. When bicyclists were surveyed regarding their income,almost half reported earning more than $100,000 a year. Providing bike paths too ur downtown area and restaurants will encourage b icyclists to make purchases from our local businesses andf uel our local economy. The trail system will add additional recreational opportunities for the large influx of winter visitors seeking aw armer climate. It will also encourage fitness among Sebring residents. Healthy lifestyles and physical activity promote healthy bodyw eights. Exercise such as biking decreases the likelihood of diabetes,high blood pressure,and heart disease. The benefits,including economic growth and a healthier Sebring,are obvious,but how much will this project cost taxpayers? According to the councils proposal,funding will come primarily through grants,private partnerships with nonprofit organizations and local businesses,and donations. The project will be completed over a span of several years as funding becomes available. According to the report,new city taxes or bonding are not recommended to be used but may be used to fund trail improvements only upon approval by the city council.The city councils conservative record regarding spending seems to affirm the statement made in the proposal. Soon Sebring residents and visitors will be able to bike around beautiful Lake Jackson,head downtown to shop and eat,and then peddle their way to the local library on the new Sebring Trails, Trailheads,and Blueways. Merchants,residents,and visitors will be able to enjoy the benefits of the new plan, including a slimmer waist, recreation,and fatter wallets. Relying on grants,donations, and partnerships with nonprofits and businesses will make the project even more appealing. City council members hope to add to the fun without adding fees for local residents. Melissa Main is a Sebring resident. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer. Thinner Sebring residents, fatter merchant wallets Guest column Melissa Main This week I want to talk about two big changes coming down the pike.These don ot include a change Im hoping for,which is that I quit trying to cough up one of my lungs like Ive been doing for the past week.No,t hese changes affect more than just your humble columnist.They will impact all of us to a greater or lesser extent. T he first one comes from the Postal Service. For years weve enjoyed six days a week of mail deliveries in this country.Wve also endured hearing how theP ostal Service is constantly losing money for various r easons. Surprisingly,even though they are a government pro-g ram,theve decided that losing money is a Bad T hing,and are trying to take steps to slow the loss down.One major way there going to do this is by no longer delivering mail onS aturdays,beginning on Aug. 1. Packages and priorit y mail would still come on Saturdays,but first class mail would languish wherev-e r it waits to be delivered until Monday. T here is a wrinkle to this, however.In the past,the Postal Service claimed thatC ongress had to change a law to stop Saturday delivery. Congress has made no m ove to do so,yet the Postal Service is going ahead with i ts plans.The argument between these two groups might be entertaining to watch if there is one. I can understand the Post Services reasoning here. They would undoubtedlys ave money by cancelling out one days worth of deliveries.It would mean one less day of getting junk mail. But there are things I like g etting in the mail.Cards, checks,interesting things to read.No Saturday delivery means such things will be delayed as well.It will also mean that things I mail out,s uch as manuscripts,will be delayed by a day. T rue,I dont use the US Postal Service as much as I used to.Thats probably oneo f the reasons there having financial problems.But I use i t enough that I will miss Saturday deliveries when they cease. The other change coming about has to do with thatv enerable game Monopoly.Everyone reading t his column has probably played Monopoly at least once in their life.Whichm eans you might remember the tokens we used to move a round the board; the iron, the dog,the wheelbarrow, the shoe,the car,the battle-s hip,the thimble,and the top hat. Well Hasbro Inc.,the c ompany that owns the game,decided to make a c hange.They threw it open to the fans and gave them a choice:ditch the iron, wheelbarrow,or shoe token and replace it with one off ive alternate choices. Voting took place on Facebook and closed this past Tuesday at midnight.If you were a fan of the iron, you will be sad to hear that it was voted off the board.I n its place?A cat,no doubt doomed to be chased around t he board by the dog token. I for one will not miss the iron as a token.As a person who is challenged when it comes to housekeeping,i roning does not rank high on my list of Things I Enjoy Doing.So I really dont need to be reminded of it in a game. H ope youre ready for these upcoming changes.d go on about them,but Im still busy trying to cough up that lung.Lets hope an end to this virus is a change that comes soon. Changes Educated public needed to protect countryEditor: The past few years there have been numerous stories about DNA information that have cleared suspects and have caused many criminals to be convicted. Todays science shows the DNA for each human is determined at the conception of each person. The general public is not very much aware and are uninformed about information about science and law. We need an educated and aware public to protect our country. These apathetic views appear to be caused by our addiction to entertainment and the bent on following the details of the stories of celebrities. All the reality on TV shows do not educate very much. These are surely not good for our country. How many of the general public following the rulings both courts and the Supreme Court? Today,looking at Civil War history and the life of Lincoln,it is time to look at two Supreme Court decisions. The first,the Dred Scott decision that ruled a slave was not a person. Now the Roe v. Wade decision (40 years old appears to say that a person (an unborn baby) is not a human. The Roe v.Wade decision ruled that a human before birth is not to be considered human if the baby is living before the third quarter after conception. Todays courts should keep in mind that all humans have our own unique DNA starting at conception. Most people believe that humans start at conception. In fact,a heartbeat is detected at 19 days. Persons believing that humans exist at conception expressed their view by more than 500,000 pro-life demonstrators in Washington,D.C. Most of the media did not cover this huge demonstration. Why? Mac McCauley SebringGetting past itEditor: Examining our difficulties with Iran today,it seems useful to examine two other countries where we have had difficulties in the past, Vietnam and Cuba. In Vietnam,we have normalized our past war relationship to a level that permits American citizens to visit as tourists and a growing economic relationship. This despite a war that cost Americans over 58,000 lives and several million Vietnamese. By contrast we still maintain a hostility toward Cuba,based largely on the belligerence of a small minority of former Cubans,largely resident in south Floridawho have developed a political footprint significant enough to dominate our foreign policy and elect several persons of Cuban descent who place old hostilities ahead of our more important interests and better angels. Truly a tail wagging the dogsituation. In Iran,the ancient grievances on the Iranian side are largely based on our role in ousting the democratically elected government of Mossadeghin 1953,his subsequent assassination,and supporting the military takeover which installed Pahlavi as Shah,whose regime brutalized the Iranian people. Eventually the Iranians rebelled against the Shah despite his continued support by the U.S. and other western governments. On the U.S. side,we still cultivate our outrage over the takeover of our embassy in 1979 and the subsequent anti-western theocracy established by Khomeini,who filled the void created by the Shahs departure. Currently,some low level talks signal a beginning; perhaps some reason for hope. It seems obvious that some effort to get past old grievances and look for the potential for establishing mutually beneficial relationships is a necessary first step. Reaching out to Cuba,and rejecting the cultivation of old grievances as the Miami refugee community insists on pursuing,should be fairly easy. Unlike Vietnam we did not lose 58,000 American lives there. Our embarrassment is largely tied to the Bay of Pigs fiasco in 1961 and the subsequent missile crisis in 1962 which involved both Cuba and the Soviet Union. We now have normalized our relationship with Russia,the successor state of the Soviet Union,yet still treat Cuba as an enemy.We should get over it and recognized thatmost of the Cubans today were born many years after our political contratemps and are eager to normalize their relationship with the U.S.If we could,perhaps put aside our former offenses and lookto current opportunities for mutual accords,we just might be able to reduce the world tensions which currently drive our foreign affairs.

Firefighters currently working at Sun N Lake expressed shock and dismay at the decision,whicht hey said was a surprise. There was no round table discussion,Lt. Craig Maranas said. We have a lot of ideas of how to savem oney. He added that the job was only part time. but losing the job would be a hardship for the firefighters who need it to make ends meet. H owever,Maranas emphasized,their financial l oss was not what worried him or his fellow firefighters about disbanding thed epartment. With two nursing homes, a n elementary school,a middle school,a hospital and many doctors offices in the area,as well as large areas of brush,and isolatedh ouses,Maranas said, response time is his biggest c oncern. ith a volunteer force, Maranas said,the fire-f ighters have to get to the station to get the truck b efore they can leave for the scene. That takes about five minutes,then therest he time it takes to get to the emergency.West Sebrings station is well to t he south on Hammock Road,he said. M aranas is just as concerned about losing the departments vast local store of knowledge. s not like we just s tarted yesterday,Maranas said. We dont just know where the golf courses are; we know the quickest way to every hole on the course. T his,said Maranas,is a part of the hidden equation. When firefighters are called out,he said,but their services are refused upona rrival,the call does not count in the response statistics. This makes it seem as if a station is not as busy as it is,he said. M aranas added,that doing away with the Sun N Lake department meant more work for the county, which would have to take over pre-fire inspectionsa nd other paperwork being done now. S hould an arrangement be worked out with West Sebring,Sun N Lake resi-d ents and property owners will be charged the count s $25 annual fire assessment towards the expense. The district currently charges a $32 annual fire assessment. T here was discussion among the supervisors as to w hether or not to do away with the districts assessment,when the countysa ssessment takes effect. Some supervisors want to e nd the districts assessment,others feel future expenses for public safety whether contributing toward building the new complex,or buying new e quipment means now is the proper time to save and p repare. The final closure of the Sun N Lake Fire Department will be decided after approval by countyc ommission and West Sebring VFD.

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK It was their season in a nutshell, encapsulated in 32 minutes of game time. A rough start, missed shots and poor decisions early. But with a continued e ffort, the defense kicked in, shots began to fall and h eady play down the stretch s ecured the District 10-4A Tournament title with Avon Park topping DeSoto 56-51 Friday night. eve preached it all season long, this is a marathon, not a sprint, first-year head coach Marty OHora said. There were a lot of misses early on, but they played hard and it wasa total team effort. Weve made progress and are playing for one another and not against each other But those early misses caused a little tension among the home crowd as a Recarus Burley leaner, a Gus Owens jumper in the lane and a Tyrone Perry power move in the paint were all that would go on the board in the first period and allowed the visiting Bulldogs to stake a 12-6 lead. The shots, more specifically free throws, started to fall as the scoring increased in the second, with Steven Roberts going 4-of-4 from the charity stripe, Burley hitting four straight and Perry chipping in one. Perry and Alfred Brown also connected on threepointers and Jovan Pratt ended the quarter with a steal and score to give the Devils the lead at the half, 25-23. But DeSoto wasnt going to go down without a fight, figuratively speaking of course, though this was a physical, rough-and-tumble battle as the two playoffbound teams were scrapping for both the trophy anda home game to start the state tournament. The Avon Park scoring stayed spread out in the third, with Owens scoring inside, Burley hitting a three, Brown canning a jumper from the wing and Perry driving for two. But the Bulldogs picked it up and the Devils went cold from the line, missing all four of their foul shots in the frame and DeSoto went back up by a point at 37-36 heading into the final eight minutes. The dogs then looked to break it open as they got the first two scores of the fourth to move up 41-36. But Brown hit a free throw and a trey before Pratt split a pair at the line to draw the Devils even. DeSoto went back up on a free throw and basket, but Burley drained one from B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID The district championship was nearly a decade in the making, but to recall the last time a Lake Placid girls basketball team actually won a state playoff game, one must go back to last century. OK, so it isnt as far back as that makes it sound, but not since 1999 have the Lady Green Dragons done what they did Thursday night with a 51-37 win over the Academy of the Holy Names. I knew if we played our game, if the girls played smart that we could play with them, head coach Jackie Coyne said. They were missing their starting point guard, the star of their team, with an injury, so that hurt them. But that is still a very good basketball team. The goal is to always be within 10 at halftime, she continued. Were a secondhalf team and when I saw we were down just four, as bad as we were shooting, I felt we had this one. That shooting was brutal, indeed, as Lake Placid star guard Alex Coyne agreed. Nobody was hitting anything from the outside and there were some easy shots we were missing too, she said. But it was a great team effort on defense that made up for it. Fortunately, Bria Wilson started out hitting from the field, as she opened the scoring with a long two-pointer and later hit a jumper in the lane. Coyne found Breauna Corley inside for an easy deuce and would close out the first-quarter scoring when she rattled in a three-pointer. But the vaunted defense hadnt quite kicked in yet, as the Lady Jaguars got six points from Brianna Wharton, five from Victoria Martinez and a trey from Cristina Snyder to claima 14-9 lead. Wharton got the second quarter started by hitting a pair at the line, but Wilson worked down low for two and Coyne hit two free throws. Holy Names got a jumper from Kelli Cartwright, but Lady Dragons claim first playoff win in 15 years SPORTS B SE CTION Inside This Section Winter Test wraps up . .4B 70s softball at midseason . .4B News-Sun Sunday, February 10, 2013 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE S haquavia Gayle screams in celebration after the final buzzer sounded on Lake Placids 51-37 Regional Quarterfinal win over Academy of the Holy NamesT hursday night.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID The twists and turns early in a season play a role in howt he year progresses. After a strong, openingday win, the Lady Streaks took a step up in competit ion and were hammered by Lakeland. B ut facing that level of play will serve to benefit S ebring as the season moves along, much like Thursdays big win over a young Lake Placid squad should serve the Dragons well moving forward. The Ladies in Green had rolled to easy wins over Clewiston and Avon Park to start their season, but got a dose of stiff competition in the cross-county match, with the Streakss weeping to the win. N isha Patel handled Hannah Waller pretty effectively in the first set of the No. 1 Singles match, taking a 6-1 win. Forced to up her game, Waller did just that and gave Patel all she could handle before escaping Lady Streaks serve up win over Dragons See STREAKS, Page 3B Courtesy photo The 2013 District 10-4A champion Avon Park Red Devils display their trophy after F ridays hard-fought, five-point win over DeSoto.

Joining him for the big moment were, in addition to his parents Ezell Sr. and Christina, Sebring assistant principal Ilene Eshelman, Blue Streak head football coach LaVaar Scott and Sebring athletic director Chris Cook. By ERIKACORD News-Sun correspondentSEBRING The years of hard work and dedication finally paid off for Sebrings Ezell Gammage, after signing to the school of his choice, Miles College, on National Signing Day Wednesday. The key defensive end for the Blue Streaks is transferring his skills to the Golden Bears in Fairfield, AL. The athletic program is great and not to mention the education I will be getting, Gammage said, before adding, with a laugh, and the great benefits help too! I love how everyone there is cool with each other. He has been playing football his whole life, and has shown his athletic versatility on the basketball courts for the Blue Streaks as well. Gammage will be expected to play both defensive tackle and defensive end at Miles, and is externally thrilled to do so. I am most worried about being away from my mama he explained. But I cant say Im not excited to leave. Ive worked hard for this and its finally paying off. I want to thank (Sebring head) coach (LaVaar) Scott for being a big part in getting this far. If not for him I wouldnt be here, Gammage said. He has been such a great role model, and Reverend Robert Shannon as well for financially supporting me and being my motivator At Miles, a Division II school plays in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference against such schools as Kentucky State, Albany State, Morehouse and Tuskegee University, and reached the NCAAPlayoffs for the first time in school history last season. In accumulating their 8-2 regular season record, the Golden Bears two losses were by a total of 11 points, Gammage now a Golden Bear See EZELL, Page 4B

C M Y K the Dragons answered when Coyne found Corley with a long pass for an easy two on the break. Martinez then had a putback and an easy lay-in off a well executed pick-and-roll to put the Jaguars up 22-15. But Coyne drained a three just before the half to cut the lead back to 22-18. And it was soon after that the Lady Dragon defensive attack was unleashed and turned things around. ere a well conditioned t eam and have a few girls w ho can just run all day coach Coyne said. That allows us to stay aggressive and really get to teams in the second half of games. The younger Coyne got the offense started, defensively, with a steal and score on H oly Names opening possession. Raveen Gobourne then did the same thing on the next possession and it was back to an even game just seconds in. Shaquavia Gayle followed with a follow and Coyne got another steal, was fouled and hit one-of-two at the line. Snyder would hit a three to halt the run, but Wilson answered with a baselinej umper. Siobhan Lynch would hit an eight-footer, but that would mark the Jags lasts core of the period. From there, Wilson scored i nside, Coyne hit two free throws, Corley powered in f or two and Coyne canned a triple for a 36-27 lead. T he lead was pushed into double figures on a Coyne drive to start the fourth, and after Wharton hit a free throw, Wilson popped a short jumper off an inbounds play to make it 40-28. Snyder and Wharton went for consecutive scores, and it looked like Holy Names might have one more run in them to close the gap. But Quiahja Williams hit a big lay-up off a Coyne pass and Corley scored on a break, was fouled and sank h er free throw to all but put it out of reach. Coyne then went 4-of-4 from the line and Williams 2of-2 to seal the deal. I know we made a little history here, and we couldnt h ave done it without the great support the community showed us tonight, coach C oyne said. It was a great crowd here tonight and that provided such a great lift for the girls. And the excitement continued with the news that Lake Placid would be hosti ng their next game, against D istrict 9 champion Tampa Catholic, who beat DeSoto 60-54 Thursday. e know that Holy Names beat them twice during the season, but lost to t hem in their tournament, Alex Coyne said.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Sebring Seventy and Over Softball League results on Thursday saw Buttonwood Bay try hard to get into the win column against the Silent Salesman. The first four innings went quite well for the Rebels as they only trailed 16-12. The Salesman decided to play a little defense the last four innings for a final score of 23-12. The Salesman were swinging hot bats as they scored five times in four of the seven innings they batted in. Norm Grubbs had the only extra base hit, banging out a double and two singles.

John Kloet, winning pitcher, had 3-for-6 The Salesmans Don Goodwin is to be commended for stepping in to pitch in place of regular pitcher V ictor Rodriquez.

Thank you to all of the spectators who attend the games on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10 a.m. at the Highlands County Sports Complex in Sebring. alms.comSEBRING The 2013 American Le Mans Series presented by Patrn Winter Test at Sebring International Raceway is now in the books, and the second day of the two-day session saw times come down in all classes. Defending ALMS P1 co-champion Klaus Graf posted the quickest t ime of the test on Friday morning, t urning a 1:46.368 (126.579 mph lap in the No. 6 Muscle Milk Pickett Racing HPD ARX-03c. The time was more than a full second quicker than teammate and fellow co-champion Lucas Luhr posted to lead Thursdays sessions. It was a very productive test, Graf said. We made a lot of changes and went through a big program. We did a lot of miles, and the car was very reliable. It was a very i mportant test for us to go through the updated components and make sure everything works OK and is reliable. Alot of what we did will help us throughout the season as well as for the Sebring race. The track conditions change so much here, and t hats normal, that its hard to say how things will be come race week. It depends on so many factors. Overall, it was a very satisfying test and we collected plenty of data for us to look over In the Prototype Challenge (PC class, Kyle Marcelli turned in a late flyer aboard the No. 8 BAR 1 Motorsports ORECAFLM09 to take over Winter Test bragging rights from the No. 18 Performance Tech team. M arcellis quick lap was a 1 :54.803 (117.279 mph). This is going to be the second year for BAR 1 Motorsports, Marcelli said. Last year was put together really after the test at this point. It was so last-minute, and we were just battling from behind all year. e were fast, we had good appearances at certain events here and there, but we really pieced together the puzzle for this year with everything it took to go after a championship. The team looks good, weve got good people, weve got a good driver lineup and I think our only focus is to go after a championship. As it did Thursday, the No. 62 Risi Competizione Ferrari F458 Italia once again showed the way in the GTclass with a lap at 1:59.862 (112.329 mph) in the afternoon sess ion. The morning session lead went to the No. 02 Extreme Speed Motorsports Ferrari F458 Italia with Anthony Lazzaro at the wheel, which may have provided some consolation after Johannes van O verbeek crashed the teams No. 01 machine earlier in the tests only s ignificant incident. Van Overbeek was not injured. As drivers and competitors, youre always concerned about the lap time, so my last time in the car this morning, we were quite quick, Lazzaro said. Thats what we can leave on, so Im happy with that. Ive said it before, this team when I came here for Sebring (in 2012 made me feel welcome right away. Its an extremely comfortable atmosphere to be in. Its a really good group of guys that are really happy and love what theyre doing, but also quite serious. Thats what you saw as they got a couple of wins last year, most notably at Petit Le Mans. They know how to perform. Top honors in the GTC class we nt to the No. 44 Flying Lizard Motorsports Porsche 911 GT3 Cup with Spencer Pumpelly behind the wheel. Pumpelly logged a best lap at 2:06.061 (106.805 mphhe afternoon session. Im proud of the lap time, but I t hink what was more important was t he work we did to learn more about this car and get it ready for the race and try some things that will be helpful throughout the season, Pumpelly said. These guys are new to this car, but theyve got a ton of experience. I cant be happier to be a part of this team and this organization, and [co-drivers] Nelson [Canache] and Archie [Hamilton] also did an awesome job. It was a really good test for us and I cant w ait for the season to start.

This pristine site is at the end of Sun N Lake Boulevard.O nly walkers and bicyclers may enter since there are no m otorized vehicles allowed inside the gates. When it comes to natural a reas,some folks think that if you leave a piece of land a lone,it will be just fine,but that is not usually the case. The land actually needs to be managed to keep it in itsp ristine condition. If the land isnt managed properly, exotic species may take over, succession will occur and pretty soon,the area is nol onger hospitable to the plants and animals that have always lived there. Management activities that are generally performed ine nvironmental areas include prescribed fire,roller chopping,selective thinning and exotic removal. Each practice is important to specifica reas for specific reasons. Many plant communities are fire dependent,whichm eans they need fire to survive. The pineflatwood community is one of thesea reas. Pines need the sun. When hardwood trees,such a s oaks begin to grow in these areas,they shade out the sun-loving pines,whichc annot reproduce without an open area and lots of suns hine. Without fire,eventually the pine forest will b ecome a hammock. You may be asking,why i s this so bad? The pineflatwood community supports thousands of species of floraa nd fauna that cannot survive anywhere else. If all t heir sources of food,shelter and type of community are no longer available,they will perish. Prescribed burns are performed mainly to reduce fuelo n the forest floor and kill hardwood trees that threaten to take over the pine forests. The survival and resilience of many plant speciesd epend on the nutrients the burning provides to the soil. Burning permits new growth of many species,especially wildflowers. A variety ofw ildlife species are attracted to lower lying vegetation, which is provided after a burn.Another very important reason to burn on a regularb asis is for safety.When certain plant communities are not burnt for many years,f uels build up on the forest floor.Pine needles,dead branches,leaves and vegeta-t ion are very attractive to wildfires.Keeping these f uels to a minimum seriously reduces the possibility of wildfire,keeping nearby res-i dences and other structures out of harms way. T here was a time when fire was a common and natural occurrence. Frequently, especially in the summerm onths when weather can be severe,lightening would strike a pine tree,shrub or grasses and start a raging flame throughout the forests.T he fire would burn for miles until it met up with a natural fire break such as a lake,swamp or hardwood hammock.Once the blazesm et up with the wetter areas, they would go out. With this in mind,it is easy to understand why fire is still important to ourr emaining natural areas. However,with hospitals,residences,schools,roads ando ther human inhabited structures all around,fire is not a very welcome visitor. That isw hy mankind must occasionally step in and lend Mother N ature a helping hand by burning in a safe and planned manner. N ow hopefully you understand why fire is i mportant as a tool.Prescribed burns are very carefully written prescriptions for a specific areat hat requires fire to survive.Many factors such as weather,ground moisture, wind speed and direction, and humidity are calculatedi nto the prescription. If any of these factors are not ideal, the burn does not happen that day. Recently a prescribed b urn was performed in the northern most sections of the Sun N Lake Preserve. Within the next couple of weeks,two more burns willb e done north of gate six. Very soon,the new growth will begin to emerge fromt he ashes. Animals will come to forage in the wide open spaces where food is readilya vailable.Wildflowers will begin to pop up all over,givi ng the forest floor a burst of color. As it was in the past, the plant communities thatw ere touched by fire will thrive,rejuvenate,and regene rate. Many natural areas require periodic fire to stay healthy News From The W atershed Corine Burgess Courtesy photo SamVanHook strings fire in the north section of the Sun N Lake Preserve during a prescribed burn that was performed on Jan. 23.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 23 Leo,dont get too excited when things seem out of whack this week. Keep calm and find out how you can set things on the right course. Lead by example,and others will follow. Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22 Virgo,try not to participate in any new activities this week. You are already over-extended. Clear your to-do lists before you take on any other responsibilities.

His fiancee is an only daughter with three brothers,and her family ist hrowing a large,traditional,formal wedding. M y husband and I have just been informed by Stevs mother that we aret o host the rehearsal dinner for the wedding party,their s pouses and out-of-town guests. It will cost thousands of dollars in addition to the cost of us attending the wedding,and we willh ave to go into debt to pay for it. Is this fair? W hen we were married, we had a simple wedding. We prepared everythingo urselves because it was all we could afford. Should w e be expected to fork over money we dont have to feed people we dontk now just because the brides family can afford to throw a large,formal wedd ing? Stepmom in Canada D ear Stepmom: No, you should not,and you should let the brides family know it ASAP. Although,traditionally,ar ehearsal dinner is hosted by the parents of the groom,today it can be hosted by just about anyone who is willing. And while the guest list normally includes all atten-d ants and their spouses or partners,close relatives a nd special guests such as the clergyperson and spouse,you are not obligated to include out-oftown guests. Out-of-towng uests should be given a list of local restaurants and should not expect to be entertained beyond the wedding and the reception. Dear Abby: I had a working relationship witha couple,and Millie,for many years. I considered them personal friends as well. I have since left the company and moved about 80 miles away. While I have enjoyed staying in touch with them, their phone calls to me have been overwhelming. They sometimes call at inappropriate times day and night. Ignoring them or not returning calls didt work. Ed sent me texts, and I finally responded with Please dont call me anymore,but his callsc ontinue. I changed my phone number,but now Im starting to get calls where I work,and they have evenc alled my daughters phone. I know Ed is retired now and has some health issues,but I dont know why Im the one he calls when hes bored and wants s omeone to talk to.

How do I get these nice people to give me some space? Smothered in Carrollton,G a. Dear Smothered: How s ad. Multiple daily phone calls and 20 email messages a week after youh ave asked the person not to contact you isnt normal b ehavior. Is harassment.

Solution on page 5B Grooms parents balk at cost of hosting rehearsal dinner Dear Abby W hen my husband, Ken,puts the camera to his eye to photograph wildlife or landscapes,he creates a window for met o see what he has seen. He frames the scene so that the camera will capture the essence of what he observes. Then he putsi t on the computer adjusting where necessary and presenting to the viewer the heart of the matter. When I and others see the undisturbed image, we see a bit into his soul. His photography is a reflection of the beauty he sees in Gods creation that inspires him to capture it and preserve the moment. When we are together on a hike or walk,I sit back and watch him taking pictures,wondering what his eye is beholding. Other times,I scout ahead and call him to come quickly. He may not always come running until hes finished seizing the moment where he is.So,I hold my place till he catches up. Quite often,hell say that he cant take the picture because the light is not right or some other reason. But,I see it so clearly and I beg him to indulge me. When we get home Im anxious to see if somehow the camera has magically snagged a trophy for me. But,usually Im disappointed and realize I must trust his judgment not my untrained eye. Photographs provide a window for the viewer to see into the soul of the artist and the artistry of Gods creation.So,too, the lives of Christians should be windows through which others learn to live life according to the One who gives life Jesus Christ. Sometimes others look from afar and just watch, observe and patiently wait to see why that person has peace amidst struggles; or,joy in the midst of hardship.Other times they may run ahead and try to figure things out on their own. Then a friend catches up with them and lends a bit of wisdom,a truth that opens their eyes. When Paul instructed young Timothy,he said in1 Timothy 4:12 & 15b, NKJV,Let no one despise your youth,but be an example to the believers in word,in conduct,in love,in spirit,in faith,in purity that your progress may be evident to all. Being a window to lifehas nothing to do with age and everything to do with our relationship with Jesus Christ. Lets be sure our windows are squeaky clean allowing the light of Christ to shine through clearly. Selah Window to life Pause And Consider J an Merop Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.

C M Y K LIVING 14BNews-Sun Sunday, February 10, 2013 Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour,cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. In a glass measuring cup or small bowl,stir together the buttermilk and vanilla extract. In a large bowl with a hand mixer set at medium speed,beat the butter and sugar until evenly blended,about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the egg, increase the speed to high,and beat until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute more. Pour half the flour mixture into the butter-sugar mixture, and beat at medium speed until combined. Add the buttermilk mixture and continue beating until just blended. Add the remaining flour mixture and beat again. Use a cookie scoop or spoon to place a heaping tablespoon of batter on a prepared cookie sheet. Add more mounds of batter,evenly spacing them,until there are nine on each sheet. Slightly flatten each mound with a spoon. Bake cakes one sheet at a time for 10 minutes (they should be moist and spongy). Cool on the sheet for 2 minutes, then carefully transfer them to a rack to cool completely. Reline the sheets and scoop,shape and bake the remaining batter. Using an electric mixer at medium-high speed, beat all the filling ingredients except the coloring in a medium bowl until evenly blended, about 2 minutes. For a Valentine hue,fold in drops of red food coloring until the desired tint is reached. To make each pie, spoon and spread a heaping tablespoon of the filling onto the bo ttom of a cake,then gently press another cake on top.1 .In Roman mythology,Cupid is the god of erotic love and beauty.
