City officials confirmed early Tuesday morning that the City Pier dredge hole will soon be no more. CityA dministrator Scott Noethlich and Assistant City A dministrator Bob Hoffman were happy to announce that the long awaited project tof ill the City Pier dredge hole will begin today. Veterans Beach will be closed from 8 a.m. until about noon,Hoffman said. According to the city officials,the ramp at Veterans Beach must be utilized tol ower the dredge into the lake. That portion of the proje ct alone will take about two hours. e just want everyone to k now that the ramp will be utilized so you cant bring y our boats or skis or anything out there during that time. We Work begins to fill dredge hole; City Pier Beach to re-open soon News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS Preparations are under way to fill in the dredge hole at City Pier Beach in Sebring. The city of Sebring contracted with Energy Resources of Missouri to begin filling the hole in today and should complete the job over the next two weeks. S ee BEACH,page 8A By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comThe photos looked unmistakably familiar,some even worse,as I scrolled through Facebook posts and frantic updates Sunday afternoon. I immediately called my sons father and got only a busy signal. I continued scrolling through images of debris flying around,broken trees and dark,threatening clouds when I stopped cold at a photo of the University of Southern Mississippis campus,my alma mater. The famous Ogletree Alumni House,a place where so much tailgate action had taken place,so many early morning strolls and so many late afternoon rest stops happened. The F-4 tornado had shredded a path through my hometown Sunday,Feb. 10 around 6 p.m. (CST vaguely remember seeing a tornado once,off in the distance,when I was only in third grade, but videos of this monster flew up on the social media network just as fast at the 170 mph winds themselves. I called my older sister Terri to make sure my family was OK. They live just a few miles east of Hattiesburg in Petal,which also suffered significant damage. Luckily, my parents,sisters,brothersin-law,niece and nephews had all survived yet another weather catastrophe. My family has been lucky... several times. Following the Storm in 2005 (Hurricane Katrina home suffered some damage but we havent had to feel the loss of everything we know and own like other family members and so many of my friends. A hurricane is much different than a tornado. It is easier to predict and you have time to prepare; tornadoes come and rip things apart in a matter of minutes. This one was no different. Two of my rival high schools were severely damaged. Both ironically suffered major damages to their baseball fields,stadiums and News-Sun reporters family safe after F-4 tornado hits Gohlar See ALMA,page 8A Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The South Florida S tate College District Board of Trustees began its search Monday to find a replacement for SFSC President Norman L.

Thursday,St. Valentines day,the students open their studio to the public from 4-7 p.m.,so those bowls can be put to use. Ten dollars entitles the guest to a handmade bowl, soup,bread,dessert and a drink. The bulk of the entrance fee goes to two young people struggling with cancer,and a smaller amount for scholarships to student artists. Art teachers SteveVan Dam and Jack Van Dam (they are brothers) talked about Sydnee Crow and Pedro Palacios,the students for whom the art club is raising money.

To reflect the beauty of the areas 27 lakes,residents of Camp Florida Resort just completed a 12-b y-20-foot wall mural in the pool and fitness center. Snowbirdartists Jeanne Sineath,Peggy White,Kaye Houston,Barb Snyder andD awn Heinbach,long-time residents of Camp Florida, created the beautiful land-s cape of Lake Grassy highlighting its wildlife,floral beauty and recreationala ctivities. The project is part of a t hree-year effort by the fitness and activities committee to replace the old exer-c ise equipment and refurbish the aging recreation b uilding. As committee chair Diane Lucey put it, e love the murals that tell stories of the history and beauty of the Lake Placida rea. Theres nothing like it anywhere. We want our little p aradise of Camp Florida to reflect the things that make t his place so special. Wve got so much talent in the park ... painting a mural wast he perfect thing to do. The activities of Camp F lorida are managed by the CFR board of directors. In the past few years,board members have approved the upgrading of almost all oft he recreational facilities available to its residents. C urrent members are Peg Vedder,Bruce Ridley,Peg M urray,Diane Snyder and Mike Semans. A recognition ceremony w as recently held at the pool and fitness center. Lucey t hanked the board for its approval of the project and recognized the artists with flowers and a plaque acknowledging them fort heir creative efforts. Special thanks went to H arriet and Bob Porter, coordinators of the Lake P lacid Mural Society. Ken Keller,emcee of the event, thanked members of the fit-n ess center committee Diane Lucey,Wayne and K aye Houston,Wayne Newton,Bob Manning,Tom and Mary Nell Panyard and Jim Lucey for their commitment to the project overt he past years. B y BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentL AKE PLACID Most people have heard of TheAmazing Race,an American reality show where couples have to make theirw ay across various parts of the country,accomplishing tasks of varying difficulty faster and more efficiently than their competition. W hat many dont know is there also is a French version and they have had parts oft heir competition here in the United States. Theuninformed included AnthonyH aney of the Lake Placid Camp & Conference Center, w ho came upon the group Sunday after church. He decided to give one of thec ouples a ride,but it took them a while to finally get t hem in a vehicle. When we first saw them we were taking a test drive ina car we were looking to buy,Haney said. They werey elling at us to give them a ride and I rolled down the w indow and said I cantthis is not my car. It was then Haney decided t o give them a ride. So he returned the loaner and went b ack and got the big gold LPCCC van. e got up there and disc overed we were almost out of gas,so I had to yell at them again to wait,he said. When Haney pulled into the service station he wasb eset by cameramen,filming him gassing up the vehicle then jumping into the vanin order tofilm him picking up the couple. T he pair,identified as Julie and Denis,apparently are f rom the Isle of Elba. WhileDenis spoke noE nglish,his companion Julie did speak enough to converse. According to her accounts,the grouphad started with challenges inH avana,Cuba and were not impressed with the island nation. She said everything there was very run downand thes treets look like a 1950scar show,he said. They said accomplishing their task had been very difficult there. From Cuba,the couple has fulfilled challenges in Mexico City,New Orleans, Dothan,Ala.,Tallahassee, and most recently in Ocala. There,the pair were tied back to back and forced to navigate their way through theO cala National Forest. She asked if we were familiar with the love bug, Haney said. I assured her we were. She said it was liket hat. Apart from the scripted times when the twowere asked to discuss their strategy for the race,Haney saidt he pair was quite interested in the amount of orange groves and cattle pasturest hat lined the highway between LaBelle and the Caladium Capital of theW orld. e had a good time t elling them about Highlands County.We told them about the 12 Hours ofS ebring,explained the history of the area andwhat we do a t the camp and conference center,Haney said. Known as Amazing Race: the biggest race around the world,the French version oft he showis produced by Shine France in association w ith ABC Studios.It is distributed by The Walt Disney Company France and is host-e d by famous french news and sportscaster Alexandre D elprier. Accompanying Haney was his 17-year-old son,Levi. H aney said that since their excursion and appearance on European television,his dad coolness levelhas shot off the chart. I guess Im awesome now,he said with a laugh. Like its American counterpart,The Amazing Race: Franceinvolves acompeti-t ion between teams of two in a race around the world. T he race is divided into a number of legs whereint eams travel and complete various tasks to obtain clues to help them progress to a pit stop where teams are given a chance to rest and recoverb efore starting the next leg; the last team to arrive is normally eliminated from the race (except in non-elimination legs). The final leg ofe ach race is run by the last three remaining teams,and the first to arrive at the final destination wins a grand prizeof $50,000. Haney said he did his part; Julie and Denis were second on their leg of the competition.

It was awarded a $4,000 grant from Keep Highlands Beautiful to install a shallow well for irrigating landscape for a new public garden by the new community center. The fundraiser is bigger and better, Tiffany Green, one of the organizers, said. We had a live band. It went very, very, very well. B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@ newssun.comSEBRING Missy Albrittons concern forh omeless children grew over the years. When she d iscovered recently that 100 quality foster homes were needed in Highlands County and that 30 children are in state care,A lbritton decided something had to be done. She did research. There are about 700 churches in the county,s he said,adding that she asked herself,What if one family in each congregation took in a foster child or siblings,the rest of the congregation could help with financial and moral support. She calls her program 1-1-1,one family,one child,one church. As Christians,Albritton said,we need to be very involved. We need to step up and do the right thing. I hope to have 130 homes by the end of the summer. Churches interested in the program may contact Albritton at 781-0306. Child advocate hopes churches open their hearts COMMUNITYBRIEFS Continued on page 5A Black Tie Gala benefits Highway Park Event takes place Feb. 23 at Hotel JacarandaSpecial to the News-SunAVON PARK At the annual banquet of the Historical Society of Avon Park,set for Saturday,Feb. 23 at the Hotel Jacaranda, youll find the menu includes Then & Now.This PowerPoint presentation by James Deal,society board member and museum volunteer,features historic and current photos of many of the Main Street area buildings,from the way they looked then to the way they look today. ve found this is a good way to present local history to groups of all ages,Deal said.

C M Y K The Sun N Lake board of superv isors chose money that is, c hose to lower costs to the residents and property owners. W e worry unexpected costs are h idden in the projections. More important,we worry that a life and d eath service may be seriously hampered in doing its job. This is no reflection on West S ebring the News-Sun has seen the department in action on many o ccasions. We have nothing but a dmiration for the firefighters courage and skill. T he land area the volunteer force w ill be responsible for,however,is vast,with crowded residential areas a nd expanses of wild scrub and pine where houses are scattered over a wide area. B rush fires are a real concern. Local knowledge in the partially w ild neighborhood is essential for a r apid response. We agree with Lt. Craig Maranas t hat response times will slow should t he community contract with West Sebring. As a volunteer force,its f irefighters will have to gather b efore setting out. T his leads directly to a hidden c ost insurance companies are sure to raise rates for homeowners w ho are more vulnerable because of t he necessarily longer response time from Hammock Road. O n the other hand,at the supervisorsmeeting Friday,Sun N Lake A dministrator Michael Wright made m any important points. He said the professional firefighti ng (two-man) team only served d uring business hours Monday through Friday.West Sebring was a lready covering Sun N Lake 16 h ours a day,Wright said. He added that after research he d iscovered it would cost about $1 m illion a year to maintain a fulltime,professional fire department. Wright also told about a public s afety complex now being planned. F lorida Hospital Heartland Division was making property on Sun N Lake Boulevard available for public use. The complex would be built large enough to grow a larger forcei nto it. It would contain enough r oom for a sheriffs substation,an E mergency Medical Services station and a West Sebring Volunteer Fire D epartment presence. A public safety complex is an e xcellent idea. W right also said that as a community urbanizes,it typically prof essionalizes its fire department. N ow,if we know a professional force will be needed in the future,it s eems shortsighted to do away with t he experienced,well-trained firefighters already organized and familiar with the various neighborh oods. They could be the core of a h ighly efficient and successful service,located in a central location. W e admit that $1 million is a large sum of money. But dividing t he cost throughout the community m eans no one homeowner will bear an overwhelming burden. I n any case we believe there are things more important than saving a little money. Sleeping soundly atn ight is one of those things that is w orth the cost. Besides bringing p eace of mind,working to build a professional fire department will r aise the value of homes in the area, encourage new families to move in, a nd increase public safety w hich,after all,should be the goal.

I could probably recite most of the arguments that are both for and againstS wamp Hammock,because we have heard them several times now. Many of those against Swamp Hammock are residents of Marguerite Road,as well as family members or friends of those resi-d ents. With all due respect to them,though I understand your concerns,I must remind you,the decision to approve Swamp Hammock is being brought before theB oard of County Commissioners not the Board of Marguerite Road. With that said,the board has an obligation to this county and have the authority to take action on programs to improve the county and the welfare of all of the residents. According to Florida State Statute:Title XI County Organization and Intergovernmental Regulations Chapter 125 County Government 125.045 County economic development powers. (1The Legislature finds and declares that this state faces increasing competition from other states and other countries for the location and retention of private enterprises within its borders. Furthermore,the Legislature finds that there is a need to enhance and expand economic activity in the counties of this state by attracting and retaining manufacturing development,business enterprise management,and other activities conducive to economic promotion,in order to provide a stronger,more balanced,and stable economy in the state; to enhance and preserve purchasing power and employment opportunities for the residents of this state; and to improve the welfare and competitive position of the state. The Legislature declares that it is necessary and in the public interest to facilitate the growth and creation of business enterprises in the counties of the state. Will Swamp Hammock stimulate our local economy? Yes. Will Swamp Hammock produce jobs in Highlands County? Yes. Will Swamp Hammock use local vendors and help local businesses? Yes. Will the events and activities that Swamp Hammock will offer bring in visitors from other towns,counties,and states? Yes. It seems that this decision should be an easy one. Are the residents of one street in Highlands County going to dictate whether additional revenue will be brought to our county? That doesnt seem right! I am a taxpayer and have been a resident of Highlands County my entire life. Do I not have a say? Am I not allowed to want more for my county? Is it selfish to want our communitys local economy to prosper? I dont think it is. A question for you Highlands County is,do you want the same? Standing behind Swamp Hammock is standing behind our county and our future. Charissa Buice S ebringEnd the R-word in FloridaEditor: T he Arc of Florida is working to make changes to state laws that are long overd ue. Senate Bill 142,the Intellectual Disabilities Bill,would remove the term mental retardationand replace it with intellectual disabilityin state statutes. The field of intellectual disabilities has e volved over the last few decades. Thirty years ago,when an individual was born with an intellectual disability,he or she would usually be institutionalized. Today, we understand that people with intellec-t ual disabilities can live a full and rewarding life in their community. Terminology used by medical professionals has also evolved over time. An example of this is the term mental retardation.The American Association on Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities replaced its official diagnosis with intellectual disability.The American Psychiatric Association recently made a similar change. In late January,the Social Security Administration announced its intent to make the adjustment to its official Listing of Impairments. Once considered a valid medical term, the R-word has become a hurtful slang that promotes negative stereotypes of people with intellectual disabilities. As someone who has worked in this field for 30 plus years,I know it makes individuals with intellectual disabilities feel bullied. Changing public attitudes about the Rword is not easy. Numerous celebrities and public officials have been criticized in recent years for using the R-word. They include political commentator Ann Coulter,comedian Tracy Morgan,NBA star LeBron James,actresses Kristen Stewart,Jennifer Anniston and Kirstie Alley,singers Lady Gaga and Madonna. Tampa-based radio host Mike Cowhead Calta received complaints for his news segments that used the R-word. Federal health,education and labor policy statutes were changed in 2010 when Congress passed and President Obama signed Rosas Law.Thirty-nine states have also changed their laws. Everyone has the right to be treated with respect. This is an opportunity for Floridians to do just that. Please contact your state senator and representative. Encourage them to support the Intellectual Disabilities Bill and end the R-word in Florida.

A ll items will run on a first-come basis as space permits, although more timely ones could be moved up. I n 2004,the families of eight gunshot victims sued the manufacturer and dealer of the Bushmaster XM-15 used in the DC Sniper ram-p age for negligence. They won. The New York Times reported,Under the terms of the settlement, Bushmaster Firearms Inc. of Windham,Maine,the guns maker,will pay $550,000 to the victimsfamilies; Bulls Eye Shooter Supply of Tacoma,Washington,the gun dealer,will pay $2 million. What about the families from the Amish schoolhouse shootings? Virginia Tech? The 2007 Northern Illinois University shooting? The Gabby Giffords shooting in Tucson? The Carson City,Nevada IHOP massacre in 2011? The Aurora Theater shooting? Or the parents of the first-graders gunned down in Newtown? Those families will never have their proverbial day in court with gun dealers thanks entirely to what is known as the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act of 2005. A Republican House and Senate sent George W. Bush a piece of legislation shielding gun dealers and makers from lawsuits,ensuring they cannot be held liable for any crimes committed with their products. In essence it curbs the rights of Americans to obtain redress for wrongsthe basic idea of tort laws. Wayne LaPierre said of the Arms Act,This is a historic day for freedom. I would like to thank President Bush for signing the most significant piece of pro-gun legislation in twenty years into law. History will show that this law helped save the American firearms industry from collapse under the burden of these ruinous and politically motivated lawsuits. This act of Congress wasn't about the Second Amendment. It wasnt about individual rights whatsoever. It was based on the Commerce Clause of the Constitutioncommerce,meaning business regulations,not personal liberty. So lets recap:The ATF doesn't have a fulltime agency head. Its under-funded and unable to criminally prosecute gun dealers and straw purchasers. Studies have indicated straw purchasers are the number one way guns flood our streets and get into the hands of bad guys.The agency that should be cracking down on this doesn't have the funding or the leadership. And thanks,again,to the Feds (Congressiteers cant b e held civilly liable either. What a wonderful time to be a gun manufacturer. These arms dealers get to spend their profits to spread Obama-will-take-away-our-guns propaganda,hence driving up sales of theird eadly products,which are all reward and no risk to them. Its like the Wild West but the Wild West had more gun control enforcement. The Arms Act hoped also to thwart a trend of lawsuits by cities and counties claiming they were picking up the tab for gun violence which could be avoided if the manufacturers made weapons safer (trigger locks etc.to save the industry from becoming the next tobacco.The Detroit Free Press reported in 1999,gun violence cost taxpayers $850 million a year in medical care,increased security, prison costs,lost tax revenues,decreased property values,police salaries and court costs. New Orleans was the first city to try and make the case that gun manufacturers were in fact negligent. But not now. Not after the GOP gleefully passed the Arms Act. The industry has lobbied to give themselves blanket immunity. Those who make their living off of making and selling deadly weapons have never had it so good. There is no other industry that gets this kind of freedom. They're free from innovation and market forces. There's no other industry (especially one that can easily be held responsible for so many American deaths) that isn't susceptible to criminal OR civil entanglements. It's a charmed industry Congress rigged to be successful and bullet proof. If only we all could be so lucky. From the street level gun dealers' golden era looks distinctly dystopian. Any talk of gun safety needs to include tort restoration. Give us back our right to take manufacturers who neglect to make their products safer to court. Give us back our right to hold dealers accountable when they turn a blind eye to selling to straw purchasers and the mentally ill. Gun owning is about personal responsibility? Then gun dealing should be too. Copyright 2013 TinaDupuy.com, distributed exclusively by Cagle Cartoons newspaper syndicate.

The number isa bit lower than last years a ttendees but Andrews expects riders will join in the c oming days. The event usually brings in between 170 and 200 cyclists from all over.

No boaters will be allowed on Veterans Beach or near the area on Wednesday. Once the dredge is moved into the correct position at City Pier,the process of correcting the dredge hole will begin. Sand from a very large area at the bottom of Lake Jackson,adjacent to the dredge hole,will be pumped directly into the hole. They have to take it from a very large area so there is enough sand. By utilizing a larger area of sand to fill than the current hole area we are able to get it filled safely, Noethlich said. Hoffman confirmed Noethlichs statement. They have to use sand from a larger area so as not to create another dredge hole, Hoffman said. The job is expected to be completed in just a couple weeks,depending on weather conditions. City Pier Beach has been closed for approximately three years while city officials have debated back and forth about what to do regarding the hole. After much debate about methods of filling,leaving the hole as it currently is and just about every other option available,council members voted to fill the hole completely and begin accepting bids for the task last spring. Initially,the council voted to budget $80,000 for the dredge hole project but were in for a rude awakening when the bids came in well over budget last summer. The project came in $34,417 over budget; the lowest bid being $114,000. Last night we met with the CRA (Community Redevelopment Agency) and they agreed to an equal share of the original budgeted amount,Noethlich said. Now,four entities city of Sebring,CRA,Soil and Water Conservation,and the TDC (Tourism Development Council) have ponied up $26,666 (give or take a couple dollars) to go towards the project for a total of $106,664. There was a difference of $7,748 from the total costs; the city will make up the difference,Noethlich said. With the start of the project,city officials can check one more huge item off of their to do list. The City Pier Beach is a vital part of the community and has been missed by many in the community. With the upcoming spring weather and spring break holiday,the area will likely be thriving with visitors. re extremely excited about getting this back open to the public,Hoffman said. City Pier is the best swimming area. It has great facilities,cooking areas,a nice sandy beach; its a great asset to the community. The job could easily be completed by the first of March,Noethlich said. Hopefully itll be done and ready by then (spring break). C ontinued on page 19 Beach to be open by spring break field houses.

H istoric streets in the heart of Hattiesburg are filled with bricks,trees, downed power lines,and siding. Businesses andh omes are gone. Mt. Carmel Baptist and W estminster Presbyterian, churches that have stood for decades through someo f the harshest hurricanes and storms in history,are n ow reduced to a pile of ruble. The local Red Cross facility was unlucky andw as completely destroyed. Through another devastation,comparable to the still t oo vivid Katrina and the storm of last year that w iped out much of the Gulf Coast,Mississippians are s till trying to rebuild and move forward. The continued perseverance,diligence,and immense amount of pride my fellowM ississippians have is breathtaking. I have never seen such comradery and bravery in people who have been beat down and belit-t led for so long. A total of 300 homes and businesses have been reported destroyed; 81 injuries,no deaths. I prayf or the continued peace of those who have lost their homes and their businesses,a nd I am so grateful that not one single life was lost this weekend. Had it notb een for the lack of students on campus due to the U niversitys Mardi Gras holiday this week,that death toll would have beenf ar worse. I commend my friends a nd strangers for their efforts with clean up around my city. The local small businesses that are giving out hot food,coffee,e lectricity and Internet service to those in need, i ncluding clean up crews and electricity workers,are to be applauded. The localh igh school students starting donations for their rival h igh schools in their time of need is amazing. You all are heroes. Even though my b ody is 600 miles away,my heart and my thoughts are with you all. Push forward, rebuild,keep living.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comIf its mid February, that means plans are being made for the annual trek to the L akeland Center for the State Wrestling Finals. S uch is the case yet again a s eight Highlands County grapplers qualified for the penultimate competition out of their regional meets this past weekend. At the Region 2-2Ameet at St. Cloud High School, Blue Streaks Chris DeJesus, Nathan Franklin and Ty Johnson all stamped their ticket with top-four finishes, while at the Region 2-1A meet at Tenoroc, the Red Devils saw five members of their squad confirm their reservations. Jose Torres will be making a return trip, as will Johnny Baldridge, after missing out last season. Delroy Blake, Dre Neely and Bernard Charles will be making their first trips. At St. Cloud, DeJesus took second in the 160-pound weight class and is making a return trip to Lakeland, Franklin went for third place at 120 pounds and Johnson was fourth in the 182 class. Avon Park, continuing its trend of a wrestler qualifying in every year the program has existed, saw Torres and Neely, just a freshman, win their respective weight classes, 120 and 113, and Blake take second at 195. Baldridge and Charles were fourth at 126 and 132, respectively. Noticeably absent from the list of State-bound Devils was senior Dylan Brown, who earned a fifth-place medal a season ago. But in and early round match, a shoulder injury prevented him from getting back to the big stage. So now its on to that big stage for the Highlands County eight the array of mats covering the coliseum floor of the cavernous Lakeland Center for the twoday event before a packed house of thousands of screaming fans. DeJesus, with a 34-5 record on the season, will be facing Alexander Luttrell of Crestview in his first-round match on Friday, while Franklin, at 36-11, will square off with Wilmer Almendarez of Mater SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, February 13, 2013 NASCAR This Week4B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Dylan Brown had plenty of family on hand as he signed a scholarship to Walsh University last Wednesday on National Signing Day. From left, stepmom Cheryl, grandmother Judy, grandfather Rufus, father Mike, cousin Chance Larsen and aunt Nicole Larsen. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK He had plenty of choices, Red Devil three-sport standout Dylan Brown. Some of those choices even included the chance to continue in two of those sports. But while deciding between offers from the likes Augustana in South Dakota, Minot State in North Dakota and Southeast Louisiana, Brown opted for Walsh University. The biggest thing is that they had the best financial package, he said. That would provide the best situation for me and my family Which is, of course, a big consideration. But for a high school football player looking for a place to play, it is sure hard to argue with a university in Canton, Ohio. Auniversity whose football team plays itshome games on the official field of the NFLHall of Fame. oday is the culmination of a lifelong dream for him, Browns father Mike said. s worked tirelessly for this, put in all the extra hours, even beyond practice, not to mention maintaining a 3.5 GPA. Heady stuff indeed, and all that hard work helped pave the way to a fifth-place finish on the medal stand at least years State Wrestling Final. But with the focus now on football, Brown will be working hard toward gettin g ready. From now until I head up there, Ill be getting in better shape, getting bigger, faster, stronger, he said. I want to gain 30 pounds or so of muscle, and without having to worry about cutting weight for wrestling, and a with a few buffet lines, Ill be able to put it on. For the Cavaliers, that weight will be needed as Brown will be playing noseguard in the trenches of the defensive line, up against Division II college competition.

By TAYLOR TUBBS N ews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Experiencing f ierce competition is a factor that will benefit any team in the long run. It is also important to have those matches for a team that can serve as confidence boosters. The Avon Park Red Devils and the Sebring Blue Streaks each got a benefit out of their match on Tuesday afternoon at the Sebring courts. Sebring was able to nearly sweep the courts by winning all of the singles matches and one of the doubles. However Avon Park Coach Lucky Dixon was still able to see a positive side. On any given day, we could have beat some of the Sebring players. Its an intimidation factor with Sebring. Its a mental thing. Connor Angell of Sebring was able to take the No. 1 Singles match in a perfect game, winning 6-0, 6-0 over Avon Parks Eric Parker. D uring the No. 2 Singles match, Avon Park saw a glimmer of hope when Javanghn Wells took on Blue Streak Joseph DeGenero. W ells prevailed over DeGenero in the first set with an exciting tiebreaker of 7-6.

Wrestling eight headed to State B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Sebring head coach Buck Rapps p regame words turned out to be prophetic when he m entioned that at this p oint in the season, the pitching is ahead of the hitting. In fact hitting is pretty far down the list, he continued. Pitching, fielding, base running then further down the line, the hitting will come along. And it turned out to be so as the Streaks lost to Lake Region, 1-0, in the opener of the annual Bill Jarett Ford Early Bird Tournament at Head Field in Avon Park. The Streaks actually out hit the Thunder, four to three, but two of those three hits added up to a run when Erick Railey doubled in the fourth and A.J. Rhone followed with a single to bring him in. Sebring gave itself some early chances, with freshman lead-off hitter Jordan Austin reaching on a walk to open the game. Cullen Lovett would later single to left, but Austin had already been erased on a double play and Lovett was soon forced at second to end the inning. Again in the second, the l ead-off hitter reache d, with Garrett DeRoss sending one back up the middle for a single. But Lake Region righthander Jake Kelley struck out the next batter and induced another doubleplay grounder to get out of it. Things were pretty quiet the rest of the way, with Sebring southpaw Jonathan Struck cruising along and striking out four in his solid four innings of work.

But because there smokeless,youth and adults may underestimate the seri-o us health risks associated with these products. In fact, while cigarette use continues to decline,smokeless tobacco use has remained steadya mong Highlands Countys youth for more than a decade. To help raise awareness about the dangers of smokeless tobacco,The Tobacco Free Partnership ofH ighlands County,Students Working Against Tobacco ( SWAT),and the Florida Department of Healths Bureau of Tobacco FreeF lorida will observe Through With Chew Week f rom Feb.17-23. In Highlands County,high school SWAT students willb e participating in the annual Highlands County Fair where they will set up a booth with educational materials on smokeless and candy fla-v ored tobacco products. The students will have interactive games and activities that will educate the public on the dangers of smokeless andc andy flavored tobacco and advertising tactics of big tobacco companies that makes these products appealing to our youth and young adults. There has been a big push in recent years to market spit t obacco with kid-friendly flavors and packaging,said Dr. Barry Hummel,a pediatri-c ian that works with the local Tobacco Free Partnership. Many children believe that these products are as safe as fruit or candy. Nothing couldb e further from the truth.Health RisksConstant exposure to tobacco juices from these smokeless products can cause oral cancers,which can formw ithin just five years of regular use,and can cause cancer of the esophagus,pharynx, larynx,stomach and pancreas. Smokeless tobacco usec an increase the risk of oral cancers by 80 percent and the risk of pancreatic ande sophageal cancer by 60 percent,according to a 2008 study from the World HealthO rganization (WHO International Agency for R esearch on Cancer. Aside from the increased risk of cancer,using smokeless tobacco can increase the risk of heart attack ands troke. It can lead to other oral problems such as mouth sores,gum recession,tooth decay,and permanent discoloration of teeth. S mokeless tobacco use can also increase the risk of reproductive health problems such as reduced sperm count and abnormal sperm cells form en. Women who use smokeless tobacco may be at an increased risk of preeclampsia (a condition that may include high blood pressure, fluid retention,and swelling),p remature birth,and low birth weight.AddictionL ike cigarettes,smokeless tobacco products contain nicotine,a highly addictive and dangerous chemical. Smokeless tobacco users andc igarette smokers have comparable levels of nicotine in the blood,according to the National Cancer Institute. Smokeless tobacco is not a safe alternative to smoking and the rate at which youth continue to use these products is alarming,said State Surgeon General andS ecretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. Many of these young people may be substituting cigarettes with smokeless tobacco in places where they cant smoke,leading to as tronger nicotine addiction that makes it harder for them t o quit. Tobacco Free Florida has three ways to help smokelesst obacco users quit. Those who want to quit can double t heir chances at success by using one of these free and convenient quit services.

C M Y K By ERIKA NIEDOWSKI Associated PressPROVIDENCE,R.I. When online voters nixed the clothes iron token from Hasbros Monopoly game, the appliance was held up as passe,as something your grandmother once used to ease the wrinkles out of linens and handkerchiefs. Despite being an integral part of life when the token was added to the game in the 1930s,the iron has fallen out of favor with todays fans, the Rhode Island-based company said in announcing its replacement with a cat. But even with the rise of wrinkle-free fabrics,the iron, it seems,is holding its own. While U.S. iron sales declined in volume 1 percent last year,they were up nearly3 percent overall from 2007 to 2012,according to the market research group Euromonitor International. Over the same period,steam generator irons which make more steam than traditional ones,speeding up the process experienced what the firm called enormous growth.Sales were $368 million last year. Kim Kalunian irons nearly everything:sweaters,dresses, pants,even jeans. The 23year-old digital producer at WPRO Radio in East Providence inherited her distaste for wrinkles from her mother,whom she describes as a fierce ironer.She finds the chore and the hiss of the steam therapeutic. s sort of magical,says Kalunian,who irons in the morning before work and at night if shes donning a new outfit and going out. Theres these wrinkles there,and there annoying,and you whip out this iron and you can banish them. When she travels,she always checks her hotel room to make sure it has an iron, but draws the line at adding creases to pants or ironing sheets,pillowcases or underwear. Rowenta,a manufacturer of high-end irons whose U.S. headquarters is in West Orange,N.J.,says the appliance is as relevant as ever. The company,whose products have been used to keep wrinkles out of the clothing on Project Runway,is constantly updating technology to make ironing easier,faster and better for clothes, spokeswoman Michele Lupton says. Its regular models,ranging in price from $70 to $175,now include an eco-friendlyone that uses less energy. Hasbro nixed the iron after it got the fewest votes in a Facebook poll; it is being replaced with a cat. As a nod to its service,Rowenta plans to give away 10 board games with the iron token along with a real iron before the piece is discontinued.

C M Y K By DANIEL ESTRIN Associated PressJERUSALEM Israeli police Monday detained 10 women,including the sister of American comic Sarah Silverman,as they tried to pray at a Jerusalem holy site, the head of a liberal Jewish womens group said. Anat Hoffman,who was among those detained,said the women were stopped because they were wearing religious garb that Orthodox Judaism reserves for men only.The incident occurred at the Western Wall,one of Judaisms holiest sites. Silvermans sister Susan,a Jerusalem rabbi from the liberal Reform stream of Judaism,was detained along with her teenage daughter. Sarah Silverman wrote on her Facebook page that she was SO proudof her sister and niece for their civil disobedience.The original post included more explicit language typical of Silvermans humor. The women belong to omen of the Wall,a liberal group that goes to the Western Wall each month to worship. They conduct certain rituals,such as wearing prayer shawls and skullcaps and singing out loud,practices reserved for men under strict Orthodox interpretations of Judaism. Hoffman, who was among those detained,is chairwoman of the group. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the women were detained because they acted against court-ordered regulations that bar women from wearing prayer shawls at the Western Wall so as not to offend Orthodox Jewish worshippers. Rosenfeld said the women were released after several hours. The group has been gathering at the Western Wall for a quarter century,but in recent years its activists have been increasingly detained by police. Hoffman,who chairs the group,said no woman detained has ever been formally charged with any crime. This is just attrition,said Hoffman. They want to the group to become frightened. The Monday detentions took place after about 300 people gathered at a prayer service at the Western Wall to protest Orthodox control of the site. Among the worshippers in the group,Hoffman said,were about 100 male supporters,including veterans from the legendary Israeli paratroopersbattalion that captured Jerusalems ancient walled Old City,including the Western Wall,in the 1967 Middle East War. In December,after Hoffman was arrested under similar circumstances,Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the head of the semi-governmental Jewish Agency to come up with solutions that would allow for non-Orthodox women to pray freely at the site. Hoffman said two of the women held by police were American rabbis from the egalitarian Conservative Jewish movement who missed a scheduled meeting with the Jewish Agency chief to discuss the very issue that landed them in police custody. T his past Christmas we spent at an old friends home. Actually when I say old,I mean long standing. She is 20 years younger thanI am but has served as mother/sister/daughter as well as friend. Maybe the ability to morph into all these roles is what has cemented ourf riendship. We used to go to her mothers house on Christmase ve. They said it was the Swedish custom to celebrate on the eve. What did Ik now? Only that it was warm and loving and they let m e play Santa Claus one year when the kids were old enough to recognize BigJ im. Imagine me five feet in his six-foot,four-inch s uit. One little boy looked at me suspiciously and said you aint Santa Claus. No,I replied putting theg ift back into the pack. Oh now I recognize you,Santa! a nd out came the package again. Back then it was mechanic al toys and blocks and trains lots of trains and t rain accessories. Starting with the 1-year-old plastic small layout,but later in my h ouse,when you got the fourth step on the cellar stairs,you could walk off on to one of the four ping pong tables that supported thet rain layout. But I must tell you that our best friend (one of many werent we lucky) was the artistic display manager for LionelT rains. His name was Jack Kindler and he supplemented o ur meager skills with lakes and mountains and tunnels. T his year when the gifts were opened each of the children 5,7 and 8 got an iPad. The sweet 5-yearold exchanged his iPad withh is sister when her screen fractured Christmas Day. I complained to my granddaughter Karen about the Haught children,but she toldm e the twins age 7 also got them. Now in her case I could understand that it might be better than letting them use the doctors,which t hey had been doing. (Yes it is plural.T hey are both doctors,says the proud grandma.) B ut not a train set in sight ... anywhere. I felt sad seeing the two little girls tweeting or emailing each other in thes ame house not just in the same house,but in the same r oom. I think what made me sad is that the world is so different to what I have been used to. Since the world is so big,I guess I have toc hange to fit in but this thought makes me think of the quote of Thoreau,The price of anything is the amount of life you exchangef or it. What a happy thought I dont have to!

Special to the News-SunSEBRING A highlight o f the annual Tanglewood ResidentsCancer Benefit is the display of luminaries on the half mile road around the clubhouse. Each year,r esidents purchase luminaries and decorate them to honor loved ones who have survived cancer,are currently fighting it,have lost their battle with cancer orw ho have served as a caregiver to a cancer patient. M ore than 1,000 luminaries are placed around the circle and lit at dusk where theyb urn throughout the night in a moving tribute. R esidents are invited to attend a short presentation in the clubhouse during which all who have been honored with luminariesw ill be recognized. This year,our guest speker will b e Autumn Egan from Cornerstone Hospice which has a philosophy of carew ith an emphasis on quality of life as they work to cont rol pain and other symptoms of their patients and to provide support for theirf amilies. Egan is a native Floridian who grew up in West Palm B each. She has worked with Cornerstone Hospice for the p ast six years. As clinical liaison for Highlands and Hardee counties,she is able to work directly with assisted living facility staff,s killed nursing home staff as well as members of the community to help them understand what hospice is and who can benefit from the services it provides. Egan enjoys getting i nvolved in her community and is currently serving as t he secretary for Highlands County Interagency,soon to be vice president of the Lake Placid Noon Rotary, and is a board member forN u Hope Elder Services. She is also currently a student of the 2013 Leadership Highlands class through South Florida State College. E gan will be speaking about the Five Wishes,a living will developed by Jim Towey that deals with t he personal,emotional, spiritual and medical needs of the dying. Completing the Five Wishesdocument lets patients talk withf amily,friends and medical professionals about the type of care desired. In Florida and 41 other states,the Five Wishesdocument substantially meets the state's requirements undert he law. Wish 1 lets you determ ine who you want to make health decisions when you are no longer able to do so. The person selected should be nearby so they can helpw hen needed and be strong enough to stand up for what the patient wants. Wish 2 outlines the kind of medical treatmentd esired by a person who believes that life is precious and wants to be treated with dignity at the end of life. W ish 3 provides an opportunity for the person to advise how comfortable he or she wants to be. Wish 4 lets friends and f amily know where you want to die as well as who and what you want surrounding you as death nears. Wish 5 is very powerful as it outlines what the per-s on wants those close to them to know about their f eelings and how they want family and friends to treat one another after the death. It also deals with burial or cremation,organ donationsa nd memorial contributions. Everyone in Tanglewood is invited to attend this presentation at 7 p.m. today to better prepare themselvesf or dealing with the tough decisions we will all have to face.

Births By JIM FITZGERALD Associated PressS CARSDALE,N.Y. For these young people from A fghanistan,its the perfect trip to America. They get to scarf down New York pizza,g o ice skating and take the stage at Carnegie Hall. T he Afghan Youth Orchestra,many of whose members are not farr emoved from eking out a living on the streets of Kabul,is on the New York l eg of a U.S. tour that melds Western classics with tradit ional Afghan music. About 50 players held a joint rehearsal Monday with 25 members of the Scarsdale High School orchestra,w hich meant that young musicians from a war-torn country where music was banned for several years by the Taliban were playing alongside those from one of New Yorks toniest suburbs. This is all providing a model for the future of A fghanistan,said William Harvey,the Afghan orchestras American conductora nd arranger. The recomposed music,taking the best f rom both worlds,and the cooperation between the Afghan kids and theS carsdale kids,shows what has to happen for Afghanistan. A mong the pieces rehearsed in advance of T uesday nights Carnegie program were adaptations of Vivaldis Four Seasons and Raves Bolero,both incorporating Afghan instru-m ents and rhythms. A handful of people in the Scarsdale auditorium got to hear familiar melodies perked up with such instruments as the sitar,dilruba and ghichak. Some of theA fghan musicians were barefoot. I love the Bolero,said Milad Yousofi,18,a pianist from Kabul who,like ther est of the orchestra,attends the Afghanistan National I nstitute of Music,which was founded just three years ago. Y ousofi is hoping the orchestras U.S. visit it played in Washington last w eek and is headed for Boston will help him find a way to continue his musical education in America. Im very excited and amazed that we are going to Carnegie Hall,he said. New York is my dream city. I want to come here as soon as possible. But then I want to go back to Afghanistan and teach. Hojat Hameed,21,a violinist who also plays electricg uitar in a rock band,said he became interested in music w hen he heard a Celine Dion recording. That made me want to b ecome a musician,he said. I could feel I wanted t o come home to music. Some of the Afghans may have been saved from des-p erate lives by the music school. One of my violinists u sed to sell chewing gum on the street,said Harvey,who s poke to the musicians in English and Dari,one of Afghanistans two main languages. She had to. The Taliban had beaten herf ather paralyzed and he couldnt work. The return of music to Afghanistan is a victory of the human spirit. Young Afghan musicians in NY for date at Carnegie Associated PressNEW ORLEANS B eyonce is coming back to New Orleans and back to the Superdome.

Breaking the chains FLY Lady L eanne Ely Dear Abby: My daughters are attrac-t ive young women, both doing well in theirp rofessional careers. Melanie,who is 27,is married to Sam,an extremely attractive and successful man. My 30-year-old daughter, Alicia,has been divorced for a year. Her marriage failed two years ago because she and her husband had an appetite for sex outside their marriage. While I was disturbed about that,I was horrified to learn that Melanie allows her sister to occasionally have sex with Sam. Melanies argument is that Sam is less likely to cheat given this situation. When I asked her and Sam about it, he said it wasnt his idea. My current husband says any man who would refuse this set-upwould be nuts. Alicia claims she doesnt have timeto date right now, and after she finishes her MBA,shell seek out a moren ormal relationship. I am distraught about this mess. Melanie says she wants to start a family soon. She says she loves Sam,whoc an handle everything,and she enjoys seeing everyone happy.She says Alicia wont sleep around now and, maybe,one day shell marrya handsome man like Sam who will return the favor. I cant believe these girls are my daughters. Should I continue to protest or let it go? Is this relaxed attitude about sex prevalent in young people today? I cannot understand Melanies lack of desire to defend her turf. Heartbroken Mom in Florida Dear Mom: Your daughters appear to be into the concept of open marriage. Clearly,they do not view marriage and relationships the same way you do. Melanie is naive to think that encouraging Sam to have a sexual relationship with her sister will discourage him from seeking other partners. Far from it. And asf or her wanting to start a family,has she considered what will happen if her husband impregnates Alicia at the same time or first? B ut back to your question: Are you right to protest? You certainly are. Thats what mothers are for to inject a dose of sanity when everyone around her is losing theirs. Dear Abby: The other day at work,my girlfriend overheard a group of people in the break room talking about what thed do first if they won the lottery.Without exception,everyone in that room said the first thing they would do is get a divorce. My girlfriend was stunned. Have you ever done an informal reader survey on this subject? Is the state of marriage in America really that bad? Im also curious if answers would differ along gender lines. Let me know what you think,and thanks. Happily Single But Still a Believer in Marrriage Dear Happily Single: No, I have not done a reader survey on this subject. But Im glad you asked,because I think what your girlfriend heard is a sad commentaryo n the state of the marriages of her co-workers.

A cast member of the MTV reality show Buckwildis facing a drug charge in West Virginia. Salwa Amin,24,was arraigned Monday in Nicholas County Magistrate Court on felony charges of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver.

MTV spokeswoman Candice Ashton says the network doesnt have any comment. By SANDY COHEN AP Entertainment WriterLOS ANGELES Academy Awards producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron have run out of rehearsal space. Dressing rooms,too. The award-winning production duo is planning the most performance-filled Oscar show ever. They promise a wow momentin each of its 13 acts,so the show demands a more dynamic stage and more dressing rooms and rehearsal time than previous Oscar productions. I dont think any Oscars have been as performance-based,Meron said. Its no surprise,given the pairs hitfilled history:They produced 2003s best picture,Chicago,and count TVs Smashand the recent Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Tryingamong their credits. With an unprecedented number of performances,this years Oscars could look a little more like the Grammys, which is typically like a three-hour allstar concert with a few awards thrown in. The Grammys have it easier,of course:Its a show about music wherein the nominees are accustomed to live performances,plus the Recording Academy gives out the bulk of its 81 awards during an untelevised ceremony that precedes the main event. The Oscars televise the presentation of all 24 of its awards and have traditionally relied on clip packages to showcase the cinematic achievements of its honorees. Packing the Academy Awards with performances of various kinds should up the entertainment factor. Some of them are musical,some of them are dramatic and some of them are comedic,Zadan said,adding that running out of space for their A-list roster of performers including Barbra Streisand,Adele and Norah Jones is a great problem. When you do an Oscar show,you dont have a dressing room problem. The presenters dont get dressing rooms. And how many people perform on the Oscars,like one or two?he said. We have a staggering amount of performers, and each of them needs a dressing room... Were measuring the magnitude of how big the show is by the fact that we dont have (enough rooms.

C M Y K LIVING 14BNews-Sun Wednesday, February 13, 2013 With Valentines Day t omorrow I know there are lots of people who are going o ut to enjoy a nice dinner with their special someone. I would love to cook a niced inner for Robbie,however she will be working that n ight. During my years working in restaurants,Valentines Day was a busy but fairly easy night because it is allt wo tops and the menus were pre fixed so some of t he courses could be made ahead of time. I especially liked to do a d ish called Chateaubriand. It is a classic French dish for t wo made from the center cut of beef tenderloin, comes with turned vegetab les and Parisian potatoes and is carved then plated at the tables. I served it with a side of Barnaise sauce, which is Hollandaise saucew ith tarragon and Champagne vinegar reduction added to it. If you havent had the pleasure of trying Barnaises auce on a rich piece of beef then do yourself a favor and o rder it the next time you see it on a menu. R obbies favorite dessert that I make her is Crme Brulee. It is rich vanilla custard with caramelized sugar over the top of it. It isa lways good to have a few berries to go with it as well. Here is a recipe for vanilla bean Crme Brulee that is easy to make and a greatw ay to impress that special someone. Cheers,Chef 5 3/4 each egg,fresh,separated,yolk only 2 7/8 ounce sugar,granulated 1/3 each bean,vanilla, fresh 2 1/4 cup milk,whole Preparation Method Preheat oven to 275 F. Separate yolk from white. Mix egg yolk and sugar in a bowl using wire whisk until the egg and sugar mixture is pale yellow and forms a slowly dissolving ribbon when dropped from the whisk. Split the vanilla bean pod and scrape the seeds into the milk and refrigerate for 20 minutes to infuse. Pour milk and vanilla mixture onto the egg yolks and mix well. Divide mixture into (the number of recipe yield) ramekins and cover with plastic wrap. Place in a bain marie in the pre-heated oven for about 40 minutes. When the edges of the custard are firm but the center is not,remove bain marie from oven and let custards cool. Remove from bain marie,cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. When ready to serve sprinkle sugar on top and glaze the sugar using a blow torch or under a broiler. Allow the sugar to set hard and serve. Optional garnish:serve with fresh berries and dollop whip cream. Valentines Day treat Chefs Corner Tim Spain FAMILY FEATURES Maybe its the single serve proportions,perfect caketo-icing ratio or approachability of this iconic treat, but Americas love affair with cupcakes is holding strong.
