SMS was recently named the recipient of a $15,000 grant from Rack Room Shoes. SMS was one of three big winners from around the country that were awarded the funds following an online video submission contest. Music instructor Kara Williams has been a part of SMS for 12 years. Before this contest,Williams and her students had never taken a chance at such a huge possibility; she is glad they did. The spontaneous effort seemed to be exactly what the contest judges were looking for. I saw the contest and thought it would be neat if we did it,but we didt have a whole lot of time to get it together. One of my students moms was right there cheering us on saying we should do it,we should do it. I really didnt think we had a chance, Williams said. With the encouragement of parent helper Samantha Bickman,Williams and her eighth-grade chorus class threw together a short video following a field trip while on their way back to the middle school. e just stopped at the Rack Room at the mall and flash mobbed right there. I thought one of two things would happen wed get it done or the store manager would have me taken out in handcuffs,Williams said with a laugh. Luckily,the store was completely fine with the studentsefforts and Williams was able to create a unique video for the contest. Over the school districts Christmas break,students and SMS personnel encouraged family members,friends and even strangers to vote for their video online. The three videos with the most votes were chosen as grant recipients. It took us hours to upload this thing. I was about to just give up; we were having so much difficulty. Then one of the parents tried a few more times and we finally got it. After we uploaded it,we had to get votes.

From politicians to non-profit organizations,w ell-intentioned Americans are saying all the right things about ensuring that returning warriors receive the benefits they so richlyd eserve. Still,amid a 24-hour news cycle and the hustle and bustle of our daily lives,a key component of helping c ombat veterans adjust to being home is sometimes overlooked. Too often,we forget to listen to the brave men and women who understand war like no civiliane ver could. Listening has become a b ig part of U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Josh Gillettes life since a Nov. 1,2012,impro-v ised explosive device (IEDWith shrapnel e mbedded in his eyes,it's still difficult for the soldier to see the faces of his wife and 8-year-old daughter. But if you ask the wounded war-r ior to describe his harrowing sixth deployment,he w ill gladly oblige. I like telling my story, Sgt. 1st Class Gillette toldT he Unknown Soldiers. A lot of people dont realize ( the war) is still going on. After serving three tours in Iraq and one in Bosnia,J osh was on his second deployment to Afghanistan in September 2012 when a p owerful explosion threw him into the air before he l anded several feet away. A fellow soldier had stepped on an IED and suffered devastating injuries. I was concussed and had to get to a fallen comrade who had lost both legs,J osh said. We applied first aid and cleared a helicopter to land. T wo days later,the wounded soldier succumbed to his wounds,which leftJ osh and his Special Forces unit in a state of shock. D espite their grief,however, the soldiers knew they had to keep patrollingA fghanistans volatile Helmand Province. We were pushing outside again to take over a stronghold that the Taliban had, Josh said. We wanted to show the (Afghan LocalP olice) that we could take this area. O n Nov. 1,while approaching a mud hut with his trusted military workingd og,Banan,the 32-year-old soldier sensed something w as wrong. I knew he was looking for an IED because of his c hanged behavior,Josh said. Moments later,Josh was overwhelmed by blunt force and searing heat. The dog had stepped on an IED, sending Banan and Josh flying through the air. Josh remembers nothing aboutt he ensuing battle,in which his fellow soldiers defeated Taliban fighters who attacked the helicopter evacuating him to safety. At that point I blacked out,Josh said. Banan was killed in the attack,while Josh spent the next two weeks in a con-f used,nearly comatose state. I kind of remember waking up in the hospital 15 days later,which is weird since people said I was talk-i ng to them and writing things down,he said. I d ont remember anything. With shrapnel digging into his eyes,Josh couldb arely see his battered face in a mirror. Missing his t eeth and impaled with rocks,the soldier also needed a titanium rod in his arm and plates in his cheekbones. I have limited vision, Josh said. I cant watch T V,and I cant really read. After hospital stays in Germany and Bethesda,M d.,Josh is home in Tennessee,just across the b order from Kentucks Fort Campbell. The company of his wife and daughter soft-e ns the frustration of his restricted eyesight. s been great,Josh s aid. Ive been getting stronger every day,and the d octors are saying Im recovering a lot faster than expected. W hile the Jacksonville native applauds the military f or taking great care of him since his injury,the soldiers family suffered severef inancial hardship while Josh was hospitalized far f rom home. That prompted Joshs brother,Shain,to set up a website to ask for thep ublics help. Nearly $8,000 was raised to help Josh and his family. It was real emotional for me,the grateful soldier s aid. I wish the best for so many wounded warriors, police,and firefighters ... I h ope they get that kind of support. L ike so many U.S. troops and veterans,Sgt. 1st Class Josh Gillette repeatedly puth imself in harms way without asking for anything in r eturn.

Clarifications By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Megan Marie Baker,27,was arrested Saturday on charges of criminal mis-c hief and burglary with assault or battery after an altercation with her boyfriend,Samuel H arrison,the father of their 5-month-old baby. She was released Sunday on a $2,500 bond. At about 10:30 a.m. Monday,Harrison appeared at the Highlands County Sheriffs Office complaining that Baker was harassingh im with text messages. She had allegedly sent 13 messages since her Saturday arrest. The report states all the messages were obscene,insulting and threatening; it also states no return messages from Harrison weref ound. The investigating officer reported contacting Baker by phone and telling her to stop texting Harrison. The officer added Baker was rude and argumentative during the conversation. She also repeatedly asked if Harrison was at the Sheriffs Office. A question,the officer states,he never answered. About a half hour later,Baker allegedly confronted Harrison in the courthouse parking lot very angry and apparently ready to brawl. She did this despite the fact Harrison was sitting in his 2006 Kia Sedona right next to ap arked Highlands County deputy sheriff. Feeling his patrol car rock back and forth, t he deputy got out to investigate. He found Baker trying to get at Harrison through the KIAs driver door. The two cars,however,were parked close together and Baker repeatedly slammed the KIAs drivers door into the patrol car trying to g et in. Ultimately,she caused $200 in damage to the deputys car. T he police report states that Baker,unable to get through the door,reached through a partially opened window,slapping and scratching Harrison in the face. She was taken into custody and remains in the county jail on a $17,000 bond. The largest portion,$10,000,is related to the charge of stalking cyber talk death and injury.

C M Y K votes,Williams said. B ickman agreed that the process was difficult but o verlooked Williamsposition of forgetting about the contest. It was kind of crazy,it took me like days to get this video uploaded,but it worked out. Yay! Im so excited. Ive been videoing the chorus for-e ver so Im happy they are getting recognized and Mrs. Williams is just an awesome music teahcer,said Bickman. W illiams admitted she didt think their spontaneous, u nchoreographed video would gain a winning spot b ut she remained hopeful throughout the contest p rocess. The students had just completed a book that involved leadership,takingc hances and other themes, which gaveWilliams the extra push she needed to keep a positive mindset about the contest even after so much h ad happened with the schools districts budget cuts. I lost a big part of my music room three years ago because they had to expandt he cafeteria,Williams said. Im very thankful we still have music,but it is a hard reality knowing that music programs are the first things being cut left and right. We are so blessed to have admini stration at the school board like Mr. (Wally) Cox and the o ther members and the parents that understand how important music is. They ares o committed to it and the school board is committed to not cutting music. M ore than 50 percent of students at SMS are involved i n the music program in some way.Williams knows that the percentage is so much lower in other schools. Currently there are 230 students inW illiamsmusic classes with each class being close to 35 students per class. e are going to use the money creatively and wisely, especially with the eighthgraders that made the videog oing on to high school next y ear. They said how disappointed they were that thell b e leaving when we start using the money for things like risers,new music booksa nd other things. But I told them that Ive got something special planned for them and n ot to worry,Williams said. The grant money will go to b enefit the SMS chorus classes directly.Williams is thrilled and excited that the hard work and motivation of not only her students but par-e nts have resulted in such a wonderful recognition and opportunity. e are all so excited and we are definitely looking forward to the check presentation ceremony in a couplew eeks,Williams said. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, February 22, 2013Page 3A M ARTIAL ARTS (pp care, rhp, top; 00027030 GRIFFIN'S CARPET MART; 7.444"; 10"; Black; 2/20/13; 00027778 Comprehensive Healthcare; 3.639"; 5"; Black; -; 00027792 C owden.

April 18 next court date Continued from page 1A Continued from page 1A Money will benefit schools chorus classes By CHRISTOPHER T UFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Shoppers at the two Walmart stores in Highlands County shouldb e careful to pay for everything they take out of the store. Walmart personnel,with the help of law enforce-m ent,caught one couple allegedly shoplifting in Sebring on Sunday,and one individual allegedly shoplifting in Avon Park onF riday. Each led to arrests. On Friday,Dean Hermosillo,a resident ofW auchula,is accused of leaving the Avon Park store with $724 worth of itemsh e did not pay for. Confronted by the mana ger when he was placing the items into his vehicle, Hermosillo could not pro-d uce a receipt. The store manager began escorting h im to the store,when he fled into an orange grove. The Sheriffs Office was called and a K-9 unit dispatched. Hermosillo wasf ound in a sandwich shop, and taken into custody. A s of Tuesday,he remains in the county jail on $2,000 bond. S unday,Phillip Quetot and Rachel Quetot were a rrested by the Sebring Police Department for a llegedly shoplifting in the Sebring Walmart. A store loss prevention employee reported she had observed the defendantse nter the store with an empty shopping cart. The witness observed Rachel Quetot placing items from the shelves int he shopping cart. According to the police report,Rachel Quetot concealed the items in a large black trash bag. P hillip Quetot is alleged to have taken the items to the customer service deskw ith an old receipt,returning all of the stolen items for cash,except for a pack-a ge of diapers,which were not accepted back. T he witness said the couple was observed returning to the diaper aisle,return-i ng the diapers the store did not accept and taking a l arger one,which,the witness said,the couple hid under a coat. According to the police report,the Quetots pro-c eeded to try and slip out the grocery side exit,but w ere stopped by store personnel. Booked into the county j ail,the Quetots were released the same day,each o n $500 bond. Walmart nabs shoplifters over the weekend By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comS EBRING Sebring council members tabled the proposal to replace the sidewalks within the Woodlawn Subdivision between Woodlawn Drive and State Road 17 Tuesday evening,h owever after council members were unable to come to a clear consensus. Building and Zoning Director Lee Tolar laid out plans and numbers for the council to consider regarding the proj-e ct. The expected costs of the project is $35,900 of which some of the costs is absorbed by the property owner. Tolar has run into some objection from residents who do not feel the need for side-w alks and do not want the burden of paying for them. J ay Carnes,a resident in the 1500 block of LaGrange,said he simply could not afford the costs of adding andr eplacing sidewalk on his property. s going to cost me about $230 for t his sidewalk. I cant afford it. Im taking care of a family of four,I have maybe $20 or $30 left after the bills are paid. I dont think I should have to pay for something that is on city property, Carnes said. T he sidewalk in front of Carnes home is damaged due to an oak trees roots pushing the concrete up from the ground. Clarks concern with a lawsuit against t he city for a trip and fall was echoed by Tolar. Im not only concerned with trip hazards but we have to be concerned with ADA standards too,Tolar said. The city certainly has been sued over a trip as well as a homeowner,City Attorney Bob Swaine added. Council members continued the discussion of the replacement and addition of sidewalks in the subdivision,stop-p ing to pay special attention to Roberta Avenue,which currently has no sidew alks at all. Councilman Andrew Fells posed the question of whether or not sidewalksw ere needed there or not. The addition of sidewalks on Roberta would cost an a dditional $11,000. As long as Ive been here,the past 20 years,there havent been any sidewalks there. We havent talked to all of the residents about putting in sidewalks there so I dont know how they are feeling about this,Tolar said. F ells suggested that a survey be taken t o see whether or not residents in the a rea feel the need to have sidewalks at a ll before going forward with the project. The costs of the sidewalks repair and installation varies from property to property. Council members felt that the costs will certainly be a factor for these residents with this project. Some of these arent that much but theres one here thats $1,000,Hensley said,referring to the B&Z spreadsheet. These are some pretty significant numbers were asking these people to pay. Council members agreed unanimousl y to table the item until the next meeti ng after an audience member stated that a previous trip and fall lawsuit has set a precedence for sidewalk repairs,guidelines and statutes. The tabled item will allow Swaine time to determine whether or not the suit has relevance to the city of Sebring. Council discusses sidewalks in Woodlawn subdivision

C M Y K But theve have been as soft as butter on incentives for businesses,offer-i ng hundreds of millions in cash and tax breaks to companies in return for the promise of new jobs. L awmakers havent just been lazy about ensuring that companies hit their job numbers. Theve also been care-l ess and indiscriminate in the basic design of tax breaks. A s the Sentinel reported recently, Universal Orlando has claimed more than $2.3 million in state tax creditss ince mid-2010 for adding hundreds of jobs with its hugely popular Wizarding W orld of Harry Potter expansion. Universal qualified for this subsidy by taking advantage of an incentive program intended to spur businesses to invest in urban high-crime areas. T he program,which dates from 1997,lets local governments nominate areas within their boundaries plaguedb y poverty,unemployment,physical deterioration and economic disinvestment.Businesses that add jobs int hese areas can claim tax credits. But the law lets local governments d esignate areas of up to 20 square miles. The one Orlando drew under former Mayor Glenda Hood makesC orrine Browns gerrymandered congressional district look logical. ... H arry Potter has been a boon for Central Floridas economy,but did state tax credits drive Universals decision to c reate its new attraction? Not likely. In its first year alone,the Wizarding World boosted the compans profits by tens of millions of dollars. The high-crime area tax credit calls t o mind another overly broad break lawmakers created to encourage companies to redevelop polluted areas. Under this credit,land that is merely perceived to be contaminated can quali-f y. Last year,Publix Super Markets was awarded $390,000 in tax breaks to build a distribution center on farmland near Orlando International Airport because of the perception that the landw as contaminated from pesticide use. We realize that companies will take f ull advantage of opportunities to collect incentives or reduce their tax bills. But lawmakers,who approve fundingf or incentives and can rewrite the tax code,need to be more careful to ensure t hat such opportunities are worth the dollars they may divert from other priorities. ...

In fact,lawm akers have been tough as nails in many parts of the budget,slashing billions of dollars for education,health care and other basic services. 2 227 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 863-385-6155D AN HOEHNESports Editor E xt. 528daniel.hoehne@newssun.com BUSINESS OFFICEJANET EMERSONExt. 596legals@newssun.com EDITORIAL& OPINION N EWSROOMROMONA WASHINGTONPublisher/Executive Editor Ext. 515editor@newssun.com V ICKIE WATSONExt. 518vickie.jones@newssun.comM ITCH COLLINSExt. 507mcollins@newssun.com A DVERTISING It is our policy to not printu nsigned letters to t he editor,but this iso ne except ion I will have tom ake. I remember well the restaurant that he speaks of a nd the room in the back that was dedicated to the m any veterans that would often come there and dine. Though some of the names escape me now,the faces are burned in my memo-r ies. So heres to the gentleman who wrote the following letter and the many friends he remembers. My friend and World War II veteran died twow eeks ago. I have seen nothing but a brief mention i n the obituary section to note his passing. He wanted nothing to be said about him,but something must be said on his behalf. Hew ished to remain anonymous,as do I. Some things are too painful to discuss publicly. Highlands County had t he honor of being Resident County for the last two survivors of the Burma Road,a World War II project commanded by General Joseph W. (Vinegar Joe) Stillwell. Both of these old soldiers were my friends and brother warriors. The three of us were kids off to war to have a little fun. We returned home old men and with heavy baggage. The oldest of us died in 2009 in Avon Park where he lived many years working as chef of the buffet that was adjacent to Reeds Motel. That buffet closed its doors when my friend died. He hailed from Arkansas. The Army needed mule handlers to move army mules over the Hump of the Himalayas. His being from Arkansasc aused our Army to think he was familiar with m ules. My friend was a city boy and had never seen a mule. No matter,heb ecame a mule handler. I miss talking with him a bout what we shared during freedoms greatest challenge and its most des-p erate struggle ever. After my oldest friend died,there was one left. He r eturned from Burma a veteran with unthinkable s cars. He was an engineer on the Burma Road. He became a Michigan Sawduster.He owned and operated a saw mill pro-d ucing walnut veneer. The tales of horror we shared in private were mind bending. I miss him. My hat is off to them. My hope is that they are together on the other sidew here I shall join them. Thank you,my brothers, f or your service and for offering your all on the altar of freedom and for bravely and honorably serving this land of thef ree and home of the brave, our America. At 14 years of age,I joined the Army and went off to flying school,gradu-a ted and served with the squadrons of the 475th in the South Pacific as a fighter pilot flying the mighty P-38 Lightning. When hostilities ended,I was 19 and had four enemy kills. After more than 30 years of service,I retired in Sebring,boyhood home of Tommy McGuire. Tommys 38 kills were second only to Richard Bongs 40 kills.

The News-Sun has a long history of encouraging public discussion through letters. Are the incentives for tax breaks worth it? A lot more to consider than jobsEditor: In her letter of Feb. 13, Charissa Buice says that the Swamp Hammock mud bogw ould create jobs for Highlands County. She cites a state law encouraging economic development. Unfortunately,she ignores the laws protecting our wild and scenic areas. What about the Florida Constitution, Article II Section 7a,which lays down the prevention and abatement of unnecessary noise as of a basic purpose of the state? The area near Swamp Hammock contains a lot of wildlife,including Florida sandhill cranes,which appear to be nesting in the area. The Florida sandhill cranes are a threatened species under Florida law and it is policy to protect these birds,which are easily disturbed. Would the money made off of Swamp Hammock be greater than the cost of treating the injuries? Just take one type of activity planned for Swamp Hammock. There will be mud bogging with ATVs and also ATV trails, we are told. The Swamp Hammock property has no fence on the sides but the neighboring ranches have barbed wire fences. There are six miles of barbed wire on the border and there may be more fencing off the cattle area inside Swamp Hammock. At the Planning and Zoning hearing,developer Jeff Kennedy resisted the suggestion that a chain link fence around the property is needed. Unfortunately,collisions between ATVs and barbed wire are a serious problem. Despite all we hear about rollovers,according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission,56 percent ofd eaths in ATV accidents come from collisions with a fixed object. In 2006,Mary Aiken, M.D.,testified before a Congressional committee on the hazards of children and teens under 16 riding ATVs. Dr. Aiken spoke on behalf of the American Academy of Pediatrics. She mentions patients with severe face and neck lacerations due to driving ATVs through barbed wire fences,including one youth who survived a near decapitation ...She also says that ATV injuries tend to be extremely dirty... A position paper on ATVs by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons,AAOS, says that they are inherently unstable due to the high center of gravity. Some of these accidents happen after dark when a rider cant see the barbed wire. Others happen when a rider loses control and crashes into barbed wire. When mud-boggers are injured,taken to our county hospital and cant pay,the cost will be passed on to the taxpayers. Dale L. Gillis SebringOpen borders have touched nationEditor: The competing of those who speak Spanish and those who speak only English is playing with fire. The selling of citizenship for votes is a crime against every American citizen. The 23 million unemployed whose homes and ability to care for their families are at the breaking point. The amnesty given by Reagan destroyed them. The American people do notw ant to see a repeat of this crime against the people. The 900,000 veterans whose legal claims have been denied due to the cost of the illegals on our social systems,we should have declared war on Mexico. We fought the wrong war.They are dying at 740-plus a day. We the American people have had it with both the corrupt political parties who are going after the illegal invaders who they wish to make citizens to vote for them,regardless of the huge cost to the American people. If the sitting president is truthful about wanting to put the American working class back to work,he would demand that all illegals return to the nation of origin. If he does not want to serve the American people and wishes to serve illegals,he should resign. Americas race to the bottom by catering to the illegal worker has to come to an end. We need our military on our borders. The last 50 years of open borders have destroyed and touched every American family. Every public official needs to address the problem of who they serve,the American citizen or the illegals,you cant serve both. The American people have had it with corrupt government. The American people can no longer trust our elected leadership to serve the people. They,the leadership, have decided to serve foreign governments. Our immigration laws have been ignored for more than 50 years to serve the needs of cheap labor for our greedy manufacturing and all other industries,including large farmers who have incorporated,there are no smallf arms left. Putting the American working class on the bottom rung of the economic lattice, using an illegal Spanish workforce,will cause civil war between Spanishand English-speaking people. The English speaking Americans must demand no amnestyfor those who have already broken our laws. Billie E. Jewett SebringWest Sebring VFD barbecue a big successEditor: Chief Mann and the entire membership and board of directors of the West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department extend their thanks for the following sponsors who so generously donated their time and/or goods to help us with our 38th Annual Barbecue:Aeromed,Cohan Radio Network,the NewsSun,Sams Club,Walmart, Winn-Dixie and the support of our community. The raffle winner of a $100 gasoline card was Noreen,a snowbird from Virginia,and Newell Hull of Sebring won $95 in the 50/50 drawing. This years annual barbecue was a great success and we couldnt have done it without the help of these sponsors and our local community. Their generosity is genuinely appreciated.

Competing in bocce were Jacquelyn Furry,Minnie S ue Reid,Emily Harrison, Lorraine Steeves,Rob Ward, Helena Spies,Sharon Carpenter,Alex Lopez, Special to the News-SunSEBRING Pickleball is a game which is still foreign to most people in Highlands County,but there are several active seniors who are working hard to change that. One of those is David Majick of Highlands Ridge,a high school teacher for 34 years who had students playing pickleball way back in the 70s. David was a head basketball coach for 25 years in five high schools in Ohio. The Majicks bought in Highlands Ridge in 1999 and David has kept busy with golfing,fishing and playing pickleball. He,along with Brian Gilles,introduced pickleball to Highlands Ridge in 2010. Highlands Ridge now has two good courts but the 30 players would love to have more. Majick knows that his players in Highlands Ridge still have work to do to compete against other communities. He has now worked to re-introduce the concept of crosstown rivalry that exists at the high school level by starting the South Central Florida Pickleball By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It started o ut sloppy for Lake Placid Tuesday in their early-seas on,cross-county contest with Sebring. But the Dragons cleaned it u p,kept battling and flipped the script late in a 5-4 win over the Blue Streaks The kids played hard, Lake Placid head coach Dan C oomes said afterward. Not well,but hard. They stuck with it after getting down early and have that go-after-i t-ness,if thats even a word. They needed to get after it when the Streaks struck f or a pair of runs in the top of the first. J ordan Austin lead things off by drawing a walk off Dragon starter Jacob Cram, and after moving to second one out later,came in tos core on a Cullen Lovett single to right. An error then put runners on first and third,with another error brought home thes econd run of the inning. Southpaw Jonathan Struck then took the mound for Sebring and rolled through the Lake Placid order,striking out eight in his four innings of scoreless work. Cram settled in and w orked a one-two-three second,but the Streaks got on the board again in the third. Catcher Wyatt Johnson started the frame with a sin-g le to center before giving way to designated runner Landon Willey,who promptly stole second. Dragon shortstop Tyler Carr then made a diving stab of a liner off Lovetts bat, though Willey got back to s econd in time to avoid being doubled up. He then stole third and came in on a wild pitch to inch the lead up to 3-0. L ake Placid got itsfirst runners on base in the bottom of the third,with Heath Harris drawing a walk and Rufino Gutierrez reaching on an error. But they were stranded as Struck struck out the side. T hey threatened again in the fourth when Morgan Lott laced a one-out double down the left-field line and moved to third on a grounder to ther ight side by Cram. But a deep shot to center off Nathan Stanles bat was tracked down to retire the side. A pair of errors in the top of the fifth then allowed My son Chris and his wife Cindy live in Jupiter and from time to time they come over for the weekend with their two daughters,Kayla and Kate,and the newest member of the family,my grandson Connor. My granddaughters love to visit Grandma and Grandpa,I suspect because we have a poola nd they love to swim. They also enjoy fishing; although their atten-t ion span leaves alot to be desired. Before the weekend a rrived,I checked the weather report and it was pretty clear that we were in for the coldest weekend of 2013,so heating the pool seemed to make little sense. Im sure Kate,the boldest of the two,would have gone swimming regardless of the cold weather,but Mom and Dad probably wouldnt have approved. With the wind blowing at 15 20 mph,taking the girls out in my bass-boat, didnt make alot of sens e e ither,so we opted to fish off my new dock on LakeC lara,the small lake in my backyard. Catching up with Kate proved to be the biggest challenge. S he had to take a ride on her great-grandmothers electric wheel-chair, then numerous attempts to ride my new 21-speedb icycle,play with the dogs,and then feeding her hamster. While Chris and I were getting the rods,electric motor and battery ready, my cell phone rang. It was my wife,who was apparently locked in SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, February 22, 2013 P age 3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE The Green Dragons erupt in celebration after a 5-4, come-from-behind win over visiting Sebring Tuesday night.

This game is the first time we have beatH aines City in the past four and a half years. Quite an amazing f eat for the Lady Streaks. On Tuesday night the S treaks took on the Haines City Hornets at home,where t hey were able to come away with an exciting,5-4 victory. Sebring got a big lead early on in the bottom of the first after holding the Hornetso ff in the top half of the inning. Kara Faircloth, Loren Eures,Chelsea Bassett and CarlyH offner were all able to come across the plate,giving Sebring a4 -0 lead. That was really great,said Sinness. It was ag ood way to start the game. A similar story weaved i tself for the second inning, as the Sebring defense was able to hold off the Hornets in the top of the second. Sebring scored again in the bottom of the second when Taryn OBannon was able to make a run into home off of a hit by Hoffner,giving the Streaks a substantial 5-0 lead. The third inning went by w ithout a run for either team. In the top of the fourth, H aines City seemed to find i ts mark with the ball and was able to make several runs. The Hornets made their f irst score of the night after a force out attempt was missed. Haines City scored three more times in the fourth inning,after a hit flew out toc enter field,to make the score a more closely contested match of 5-4. In the top of fifth inning the Streaks were able toe ffectively handle the Hornets with two ground outs from short to first,and the third out caught by the leftf ielder. In the bottom of the fifth H offner and Bassett got on base with walks,but the Lady Streaks sting Hornets S ebring5H aines City4 S ee SEBRING,Page 4B Courtesy photo Emily Harrison aims her bocce ball down the court as she competes in the Special STARS Senior Games on Monday, Feb. 11.

C M Y K League. The league has five teams: Highlands Ridge, Tanglewood, Riverbend (LaBelleAshton (Lake Wales) and Del Webb (Haines City). Majick has purposely restricted the number of teams as he knows how busy seniors are and wants to ensure that teams are able to fulfill their playing commitments. The league provides an way for players to move from recreational to competitive level by allowing stronger players to meet head to head Although he started the league, Majick lavishes praise on Wayne Buck and Mark Telfer of Tanglewood, Larry Judd from Lake Ashton, Riverbends Mickey Dorman and Bob Hoffman at Del Webb and mentions that, in his opinion, the best pure pickleballer in the league is Tanglewoods 75-year old Jim Maynard. To Majick,the future of pickleball is without limits. Presently, 150,000 people play pickleball, 10,000 play in The Villages alone. It was under the radar for years but has exploded over the last 5-10 years as players, who once played tennis, are turning to pickleball as an alternative. If youve never seen the game being played, venture over to Highlands Ridge or Tanglewood to see some great action. Tanglewood will be holding the league shootout on Monday, March 4, starting at 10:30 a.m. The Heartland Games for Active Adults Pickleball Tournament will also be held at Tanglewood on Friday, March 15 and Saturday, March 16. To register contact Lauren Redick at 784-7388 or by email at CommunityEducation@southf lorida.edu The registration deadline is this Friday, Feb. 22. Carpenter, Alex Lopez, Kerrie Baker and Sandra Harper.

Things started to spark in the sixth, however, as two fine defensive plays kept Sebring off the board. First, Ricky Miller tracked down a grounder headed for right and threw on to first for an out. And a rocket-shot off Brad Dotys bat ricocheted off D ragon reliever Cody Lambert, but was scooped up by Harris at third and thrown across for the final out of the inning. The momentum from the defense then seemed to carry over to the offense as Carr walked to lead off the bottom of the sixth and moved to second on a Justin LaRosa single to left. C.J. Payne then came on in relief and struck out the first batter he faced, though a wild pitch moved the runners to second and third. Lott then sent a shot toward left, though Justin Acevedo made a diving stop at short to keep it on the infield. But a run came in and Lott reached first to put runners on the corners with just oneo ut. Abalk then brought LaRosa in and moved Lott to second, with another balk b ringing Lott to third. But he was soon caught in n o-mans land when a s creaming shot off Crams bat was caught by the Sebring third baseman who then stepped on the bag for an unassisted double play. Still, the lead had been cut in half and after getting out of the top of the seventh unscathed, the Dragons had one more rally in them. Consecutive walks to Stanley and Layne Daum got things rolling, but the next two batters were retired. Apitch in the dirt and another balk, though, moved the runners up and brought one in, and an error on a Carr grounder allowed Daum tos core and tie the game at 4-4. Awalk to LaRosa put runners on first and second and Millers bouncer up the midd le brought Carr around with the winning run. I have to give them credit, t hey never quit, Sebring head coach Buck Rapp said of the Lake Placid squad. e beat them for the first five innings, but in the last two innings they beat us. And it was another hardluck outing for Struck, who has nothing yet to show for two fine performances on the year. Last time out he lost a 10 game to Lake Region and when he left tonights game he had a 4-0 lead, Rapp said. But hes pitched two real good games and hopefully as the weather warms up, so will out bats. F or the Dragons, a win like this, especially how they won it, could well be a catalyst as the season moves forw ard. They kept up their intens ity when they could have p acked it in, Coomes said. And when you stick with it like that, little things start to happen. Lake Placid was back at it Thursday night, with a road date at Bartow, while the Streaks return to action tonight at Firemens Field against visiting DeSoto. Continued from 1B LP saves best for last News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Ricky Miller, who would later provide the game-winning hit, fires to first baseman Morgan Lott to record an out in Lake Placids 5-4 win over Sebring Tuesday night. Streaks were unable to bring them around. The sixth inning went by in a similar manor with neither team adding to the scoreboard. The Hornets were shut down in the top of the seventh with grounders and a fly ball to the center fielder, securing for the Streaks the 5-4 win. The big win against Haines City in their second home game shows much promise for the Streaks upcoming season. e have a young team this year, said Sinness. We have four seniors, but I feel like we have a really good team this year too. After the outstanding win against Haines City, the Streaks were back at it Thursday night against DeSoto. Continued from 1B Sebring softball halts Haines City her outdoor workshop along with Cindy, asking me to come out and unlock the door. Kate, who was standing guard outside the door thought this was pretty funny. Mom and Grandma were not impressed. Kayla, the 13-year old, j oined us for a few casts on the dock, but she wasnt too anxious to climb into the water-laden boat, so she stayed on the dock and took pictures in between texting and calling her friends on her new i-Phone. We fished for awhile on the dock, with no luck, and then decided to load up the boat and see if we could find some fish farther down the lake. Of course, Kate couldnt sit still for a moment. First, she wanted to drive, then she wanted to sit in the front seat, then the middle seat, and then she wanted to take her life jacket off. In between all this, she did manage to cast her plastic worm a couple of times,a nd finally, hook into a bass. Her father, Chris and I both shouted commands, keep your rod tip up, slow down, etc. but true t o her nature, she ignored o ur suggestions. She is of course, 9 years old and an experienced bass fisher-girl, whos landed h er share of bucketmouths and doesnt require any advice from us. As I lipped the 2-pound bass and brought it on board, Kates excited giggles and enthusiasm reminded me of how I was when I was a kid, fishing alongside my brothers and my Dad. I t was easier to calm the fish down than it was Kate, who was determined to catch one even bigger. Afew casts later, she caught another small bass and posed for another pict ure before begging us to keep this one for a pet. But as the wind howled and the temperatures dropped, she decided it was too cold to fish and she wanted to just drive the boat. Dropping me off on shore, Kate moved to the rear of the boat and with h er fathers steady hand, started making figure eights in the white-capped water. Two granddaughters can be a handful, especially when they are as different as Kate and Kayla. But at least they both like to fish, or at least they like to catch fish. P atience is something that may come in time. My grandson Connor, the youngest of the trio, is only about 16 months old and just learning to walk even though he already has his own custom built fishing rod. I try to imagine what fishing will be like for him in the next 50 years. There have certainly been many changes in my lifetime. The day will come when he gets older that we can teach him how to fish too, but todays not the day. Today, hes busy chasin g the dogs, getting fingerprints all over my fish tanks and biting Kates fingers. I m looking forward to fishing with him though, sharing my experiences an d telling him about the good old days. In the meantime, Kate and Kayla will keep me busy because girls just wanna have fun.

C M Y K Dear Pharmacist: Im not a fan of fungus,but Ive heard t hat shiitake mushrooms are good for cancer. What do you think? C.E.,Boston Answer: I think some mushrooms are amazing.S hitake,known botanically as Lentinula edodes,are seriously great for immune function. There not just a Japanese delicacy,these mushroomsh ave been used for centuries, and have a safe history of healing that goes back thousands of years. Chinese medicine traditionally uses mushrooms to enhance qi (pro-n oucned chee,which refers to your vital life force). W e are not talking portabello though,this is altogether different. Shiitake extracts definitely s upport immune function,but they also appear to have antiviral (even influenza), antibacterial,and antifungal effects. Ironic that fungusf ights fungus,but its basically the good fungus (shitake) killing the pathogenic ones. The 2009 study published in Complimentary Therapiesi n Clinical Practice had data to show thatshitake had xtensive antimicrobial activity against 85 percent of the organisms it was tested on, including 50 percent of they east and mould species in the trial.This study even comp ared it to ciprofloxacin,a popular antibiotic. I found a trial suggesting antiviral effects against HIVv irus as well as proliferation of leukemia. The activity was due to lentin,an antifungal compound found in shitake. I s the study tight enough for you to go off your current treatment? No way,but its worth including in your regimen,with your doctors bless-i ngs. Researchers isolated a substance called lentinanin shiitake that sparks your own immune system to do a better job at getting rid of cancerc ells. Researchers conclude that lentinan helps prolong t he survival of patients with advanced gastric cancer.In another Japanese study,pub-l ished in Cancer & Chemotherapy,July 2012, r esearchers looking at shiitaks effects on liver cancer suggested that the mushrooms might be used for alleviating side effects of chemotherapya nd preventing the progression of liver cancer for p atients with chronic hepatitis. S hiitake is active against the hepatitis B virus,so you might say this is a liver-loving mushroom in many ways. It protects the colon too. More than 10 years ago,a s tudy published in the Journal of Alternativeand C omplementary Medicine found that lentinan was able to retard the development oft umorsin mice. In fact,they said,significant regression in t umor formation was observed.Remarkable! Many studies have found that shiitake mushrooms are helpful for everyday ailments.F or example,some research shows that shiitake may r educe cholesterol levels in the blood,and lower blood pressure. Did I mention that shiitake mushrooms are a nat-u ral source of protein and vitamin D? Both are important for immunity. Shiitake mushrooms taste good,I add them to my jas-m ine rice along with pure saffron,turmeric,onions,grapeseed oil and garlic. Yum! There are excellent supplements/extracts of Shitake solda t health food stores,and you can also buy multi-tasking formulas that contain several different medicinal mushrooms. Those are a little harder to find,two good ones areM ycoPhyto by Econugenics or Mushroom Optimizer by Jarrow. The most common wrist fracture,t he Colles fracture w as described by anI rish surgeon, A braham Colles,in the early 1800s before x-ray. H is description of a two-part fracture of the distal radius (the larger bone on the thumb of the wrist) with angulation of the distal por-t ion and what looked like a dislocation of the hand is very accurate for a doctor who had no x-ray to see beneath the skin. F or the next 150-plus years the treatment remained t he same straighten the bones and immobilize thew rist and elbow.Anesthetic for straightening and immobilization methods improved but the basic treatment did not change. Patients oftene nded up with some deformity but since this fracture generally occurred in the old who often had other bad joints,the deformity was tol-e rable. The faster growing segment of the population is the 65-plus group and unlike our grandparents,they are very active and need good wrists. Fortunately fracture treatment with the development of antibiotics,safer anesthetic and better fracture fixation now lets us fix these fractures without significant deformity. The nerves enter the arm in a group with the artery in a fascial tube in the axilla (armpitilling this tube the arm becomes numb. Sedation can be used giving the patient the unawareness of a general without the risk or many of the side effects. Once the fracture is put back in place,it can be held there using two or three small wires inserted under x-ray control. The new digital xrays minimize x-ray exposure for both the surgeon and patient. A small incision is made and nerve and tendons are pushed out of the way and the pins inserted using a drill or for very soft bone a small mallet (hammerThese are placed at an angle so that they bend off the other inside cortex (the hard outer shell of bone) of the radius. This gives a springresisting the tendency of the fracture to return to its unreduced position. If the bone is very soft,then some of the newer bone substitute materials made of a substance similar to the non-living part of the bone can be placed in the defect left when the fracture is reduced. Once the pins are correctly placed,the ends are bent and left under the skin. Rarely they become annoying and need to be removed once the fracture is healed. A hard splint is used for about a week until the soft t issue bruising from the original injury settles down. The patient can use his hand forl ight activities such as eating almost immediately.This a voids the stiffness in the wrist and fingers that was required after 8-12 weeks of i mmobilization and lets us get back to golf,shuffleball or for a few of us work a lot faster.

(Galatians 3An excellent outline of this history is Nehemiah 9 and Acts 7. Now read Acts 13:14-48 to see how all this relates to Jesus,the Christ. When we turn to MatthewRevelation,they too,are arranged like a library according to subjects:biography,history and letters. The four gospelaccounts compliment each other in recording the life of Jesus (note John 20:30,31; 21:25 Acts is a history of some 30 years of the preaching the gospel. The letters from RomansRevelation are not necessarily in chronological order. It is interesting to note that many of the letters were written during the time/years of Acts. As an example,Paul was in Philippi (Acts 16 and wrote to them from Rome (Acts 28. (Philippians 4:22 The Bereans are worthy examples to any student of the Word:Theywere more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica,in that they received the word with all readiness,and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so(Acts 17:11 readinessand searched for these are two key attitudes for a productive/soul saving study of the inspired scriptures. Therefore,many of them believed,and also not a few of the Greeks, prominent women as well as men(Acts 17:12 The disciples questioned Jesusauthority cleansing the temple and wanted a sign of his verification so He said Destroy this temple,and in three days I will raise it up (John 2:19They did not understand His answer then but some time later, when He had risen from the dead,His disciples remembered He had said this to them; and they believed the Scripture and the word which Jesus had said(v. 22). This principle is true in any phase of education understanding grows over time and with further study/information. Now back to James and a final exhortation:But be doers of the word,and not hearers only,deceiving yourselves(James 1:22This reflects back to the Master Teacher But why do you call me Lord,Lord,and do not do the things which I say? (Luke 6:46) When the sword of the Spirit is implanted,engrafted,i.e. takes root in a good and honest heart,one will obey. But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it,and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work,this one will be blessed in what he does (James 1:25 Frank Parker can be reached at frankparker27@gmail.com. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily that of the News-Sun. Continued from page 7B Arranged like a library Years ago,a preacher for a frontier congregation ended a stirring sermon by stating, All those who want to go to Heaven,raise your hands! Everybody,of course,enthusiastically raised their hands high ... everybody,that is,e xcept a grizzled,old cowboy who had been slouching against the door post at the back of the room. He only stared with a look of doubt onh is face at the preacher and the individual members of the church. All heads turned as the rugged cowboy sauntered with spurs jangling up to the frontn ear the minister and said, Preacher,that was too easy. H ow dya know if these folks are serious? I cn gar-an-tee to prove to you who reallym eans to go to Heaven an who dont! B ewildered at the statement,yet wanting to show confidence in the congregation,the preacher mustered up the courage to reply,OK,s tranger,go ahead and put the faith of these good people to t he test. Ask them anything you want to! At that,the cowpoke pulled h is twin six-shooters from their holsters,turned to the c ongregation,aimed the guns right at them,and asked, Alright,who wants to goH eaven right here and now? Raise your hands! I believe that most of us w ould be just as enthusiastic about our answers as the peop le in the story if someone asked us during a sermon if we wanted to go to Heaven. Surely,there would be a chorus of people shouting, YESHowever,Heaven is not simply the result of answering a question in the affirmative. It is the result of following the right path in our lives. And,that path is not always an easy one to follow.T his is especially true since the Bible teaches that most people will not follow the roadt o eternal life. Rather,most people will follow the road that leads to eternal destruc-t ion. Jesus said in Matthew 7:13, 1 4,Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads tod estruction,and there are many who enter through it. F or the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life,and there are few who find it.In other words,we have two choices:a way thatl eads to death (which most will follow) and a way that l eads to life (which few will find). So,how do we find the p athway to eternal life? Listen again to Jesus in John 14:6, Jesus said to him,I am the way,and the truth,and the life; no one comes to the F ather but through Me.Jesus is the only way to Heaven,but one must listen to and obey Him in order to get there. Are you following the way of trutht hat leads to life? Are you following Jesus today? Kevins Komments is presented by the Sebring Parkway churcho f Christ assembling at 3800 S ebring Parkway.

C M Y K Dear Abby: My wifeo f six years was recently arrested for wiref raud, involving the receipt of unemployment benefits. She was receiving money when she should noth ave been. I knew she had applied for benefits since s he was laid off; however,I was not aware that she was falsifying documents ino rder to receive the benefits. I feel hurt,betrayed and o ffended. I am a retired law enforcement officer and currently an independent fraud investigator. Our relationship had been on the rocksf or some time prior to this humiliating event. How do I h andle this mess? Betrayed in Florida Dear Betrayed: The first t hing to do is realize that your wifes indiscretions are a reflection only on her character,not yours. Then let the law take its course,a nd once you have cooled off,decide rationally if you want to continue a marriage t hat has been on the rocks for some time. Dear Abby: Before my daughter turned 18,she followed the courts visitation specifics,as her brotherd oes. Now that shes 18,she doesnt call or come over at all. She wont answer phone calls,so I text her. Shell respond with one-word answers yes,no, maybe. I t doesnt bother me that she chooses to live this way. S hes an adult. I sent her money for her birthday. She didnt acknowledge it. If I text invitations to her,I still dont hear from her. S he doesnt go to college, doesnt drive,doesnt have a job and lives off her enabling mother. According to her brother,she playsv ideo games all night and sleeps all day. After her birthday silence, should I continue sending her money for occasions? The lack of respect makes me think not,but my love for her says I should. Is there a lesson to be taught, or do I continue dropping a check in the mail twice a year? The money is insignificant. Learning respect,I believe,is important. Dad in Battle Creek,Mich. Dear Dad: It doesnt bother you that your daughter chooses to live this way? That she doesnt work,doest go to school,plays video games all night and sleeps all day? Is she on drugs? Suffering from severe depression? Your daughters behavior is not normal. You have described a young woman i n serious need of counseling to b ring her back to reality. If y ou love your daughter,for g et the etiquette lesson and h elp her to get the psychological help she needs. D ear Abby: When I was 17,I was checked into a ps yc hiatric hospital for severe depression and a suicide a ttempt. While I was there I met Jim,a boy who was t here for the same reasons. To make a long story short, we kept in touch and now w re dating. We benefitted from the experience and are g ood for each other. T he catch is that he lives m ore than an hour away from me. We see each othe r frequently,but friends often ask how we met and we dont know how to answer the question. Generally,we say something vague about how we have known each other for a long time,but some people continue to press. Neither of us wants t o advertise that we spent time in a psych ward. How can we gracefully sidestep the question? Dodging the Question in the U.S.A. Dear Dodging: It is diffi cult to sidestep a question that is asked so frequently in the course of conversation especially if a couple seem s compatible. Because youw ould rather not be specific, j ust say you met in a teen c ounseling group a few yea rs ago. Its the truth you were being counseled.

ROTMAN, DARRIN; 1.736"; 3"; Black; healthy living; 00027211 By BOB GARVER F ilm criticA fter its first act, Identity Thiefbecomes a predictable,mildly amusing road trip comedy.This is actually a really good cre-a tive decision because the film is effectively cutting its losses after realizing that it cant keep milking laughs from identity theft. I can accept that its supposed to be funny to see Melissa McCarthys con artist Dianapaint the town red with ill-gotten funds. But I simply cannotb uy into the humor involving Jason Batemans hapl ess victim Sandy Patterson. Granted,not everything about his ruin is played forl aughs,but it isnt funny to see him constantly treated w ith rudeness and incompetence by people who think hes a loser. Nor is it funny to see people make fun of him for having the nameS andy,a gag that is used liberally even after the w orst is over. Dianaruins Sandys life with her scheme,affect-i ng everything from his credit to his career to his p ersonal reputation. This is coming at a horrible time for Sandy,as he and hisw ife (Amanda Peet soon expecting their third child. The police are port rayed as powerless,so Sandy heads to Florida to t ry and coax Dianainto traveling with him back to Denver to confess. Shes understandably resistant (in the form of a punch to thet hroat),but leaving town with an escort might protect her from violent retaliation from more bloodthirsty victims. Even with her relative cooperation,Dianaisnta n ideal travel companion. Her obnoxiousness and diso bedience promise to drive Sandy crazy,as if he werent already at his b reaking point over the identity theft. The pairs adventures include eluding gangsters (Genesis Rodriguez andT .I.,in the film solely to appear in trailers) and a bounty hunter (Robert Patrick,in the film for reasons undetermined),multiple fights and car crashes,a snake attack,and an identi-t y theft scam of their own against Sandys former boss ( Jon Favreau,in the film for a total of one scene). T he most notable detour is a romantic rendezvous with a southern-friend real estate agent (Eric Stonestreet). Its a grosss cene,but I laughed,and d rather watch it again t han that horrific GoDaddy ad from the Super Bowl. Eventually we see a more s ympathetic side to Diana and Sandy struggles with t he decision whether or not to turn her in. The humor is the stand ard R-rated comedy fare. Profanity and sexual references are thrown around a l ot. McCarthy,to her credit, t hrows her back into more than her fair share of physical gags. Several jokes are made at the expense of Dianaweight anda ppearance. One gag thats used quite often is one where Dianatells a stranger a wild story about Sandy (usually involving his genitalia) and Sandy tries to deny it,but thes tranger doesnt believe him. These gags are supp osed to tell us that Dianais good at lying a nd Sandy is bad at defending himself,but really they just tell us that the strangers doing the judging are stupid. B atemans character is a square and the script is e ven flatter than you probably expect. So your opinion of Identity Thiefboils down to how much you can laugh a t Melissa McCarthy. For many people,thats a lot. She earned an Oscar nomi-n ation last year for Bridesmaids,a rarity for such a vulgar comedy. I ll admit that shes easily the best thing about this m ovie,even if she does often resort to crass clichs. That isnt to say that she savesthe film by any means. A t best,Identity Thief is a mostly-mediocre comedy,at worst its an instruction manual for future identity thieves. Identity Thief is rated R for s exual content and language. Its running time is 112 minutes. Contact Bob Garver at rrg251@nyu.edu. Some laughs come from Identity Thief Diana, played by Melissa McCarthy, ruins the life of Sandy Patterson, played by Jason Bateman, at a very important period for him. Movie Review Identity Thief Rating: R Running time: 112 minutes Review: (of 5 By JILL LAWLESS A ssociated PressLONDON British music put on a brash,confident show at the Brit Awards on Wednesday,celebrating a resurgent industry whose bands and artists are topping charts around the globe. Winners ranged from established acts such as Coldplay and Adele to worldconquering boy band One Direction,who won in the new Global Success category. One Directions Louis Tomlinson called the prize absolutely mind-blowing. American artists Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey were among the non-British winners at a ceremony that embraced the mainstream while rewarding artists with distinctive personalities. Surfing English folk singer Ben Howard and chanteuse Emeli Sande each won two awards. Sande was named best British female artist and won the album of the year prize for her debut Our Version of Events,which has been in the British charts for more than a year. Scotland-raised Sande got a big boost in 2012 when she performed at both the opening and closing ceremonies of the Olympics. This is a dream,really, said Sande,who beat Alt-J, Mumford & Sons,Plan B and Paloma Faith to the album prize. She thanked everyone who made me feel like Im part of something much bigger. Howard was named British breakthrough act and British male artist of the year. Im not very good at speeches,the 25-year-old singer said,accurately though he may have to get good at it if his career continues to take off. Long derided as dull,the Brits have become a lively celebration of Cool Britanniamusic and style, featuring a dinner for hundreds of artists and industry figures followed by a televised concert and awards show for thousands of paying fans. Hard rockers Muse opened the show at Londons O2 Arena with a typically robust performance of their song Supremacy all thundering music,dazzling light show and 60-piece orchestra. Other performers ranged from tween-pleasing One Direction to American artists Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake. Timberlake,dapper in a tuxedo as he performed Mirrors,was described by host James Corden,in a nod to Europes horse meat scandal,as percent beefcake with just a little touch of horse. One Direction performed a mashup of post-punk classics One Way or Anotherand eenage Kicks,their single for Britains Comic Relief charity. Mumford & Sons were named best British group. The banjo-twanging band topped U.K. and U.S. charts with their second album Babel,which was named album of the year at the Grammys earlier this month.
