Its from Race Week to Race Week. You know how some people look forward toN ew Years every year,well we look forward to this. Only instead of one night,its three nights of partying,Donny Clotz said Saturday morningj ust minutes before the start of the 61st annual Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring. One word that can be used to describe the 12 Hours of Sebring is traditional. For years,friends and family have gathered throughout the Sebring International Raceway to partake in debauchery,fun and fellowship. Clotz,an Indian Rocks resident,has been coming to Sebring races since he was 16 years old. It was 1983,Clotz said. My dad wouldnt take me until I was 16. I watched him walk down the Midway with a stuffed pheasant and a mask on. He was just waving at people and being weird ... Thats when I learned way back then,its all about being weird and having fun. The wackier the better. Each year,the time honored event continues to draw seasoned Race veterans,and newbies,to the beloved Raceway to carry out old traditions as well as try out a few new ones. For first-time Race attendee Dallas Gunning,17, of St. Petersburg,the tradition of going to the races on the cusp of adulthood is something his father and his By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING The 61st Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida was greeted Saturday by clear skies and cool temperatures. Not the bikini weatherthat has been the hallmark of past years,but certainly not cold enough to put the slightest hitch in the Boner Outfitters Model Search/Bikini Contest now an afternoon staple of the Sebring International Raceways Spring Brake Party Zone. By the time the event had arrived,the air had warmed and the field was packed with faithful attendees. The crowd,estimated at more than 100,000,was better than well-behaved. In fact,as of Friday Highlands County Sheriff's officials had reported only four arrests. There were none on Wednesday or Thursday of Race Week with three cases of underage possession of alcohol and one count each of giving false information to an officer and resisting an officer without violence registered on Friday. Only one accident was recorded over the first three days. A 58-year-old man reportedly fell from a golf cart in the Paddock Thursday evening. He was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital. However,there was no indication as to his condition,.

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c email@example.comSEBRING Those who have passed up attending the Heartland Idol until now should rethink that decisionT hursday.The new venue at the Highlands Family YMCA improves the sound quality tremendously,and having an actual floor meanst here is more room for comfortable seating. Don Ewell and David Flowers have polished their master of ceremonies pattera nd keep the evening flowing. But what makes this y ears contest out of the ordinary is the quality of the singing. T here are individuals among the semi-finalists w ho have the talent for professional careers. Miraculous. So gifted. S o talented. You have a future,judge Larry Moore t old Mary Hazel Teope. t doubt,judge Vickie Watson told Erin Sena. You can sing. For the show Thursday W atson says the contest will ride on song choice. Pick a s ong that matches your voice. Pick a song that you can own. W ith only eight semifinalists,Diana Walker,the h eart behind the Heartland Idol,made a founders decisionand changed the w ay the finalists are chosen. Instead of eliminating singers,each will sing in both semi-final rounds. The two scores will be addedt ogether and the top five scores move on to the finals. A perfect score for a single perfomance is 200. Don Elwell,told the cont ests to focus on getting to the finals. Remember you d ont have to be first. You just have to be in the topf ive,he said. Adam Meredith ends the first round with the highest score,164. Johanna Johnston had the lowests core of 110. She has an amazing voice,however, and depending on song choice is not out of the running. Both Meredith andJ ohnston act and sing with the Highlands Little Theatre. Lindsey Sears earned 147 points; Ashley Nicole Elder, 147; Mary Hazel Teope, 1 40; Gary Johnson (who built a small pier from which he sang Sitting ont he Dock of the Bay) earned 137; and Erin Sena, 115.

Several items placed on the upcoming agenda are revisits from previously tabled items,i ncluding an update on last meetings proposal to create a boat channel at Veterans Beach. Council members tabled t he item due to lack of specifics regarding cost and permitting procedures. Thep roposed project would be known as maintenance dredgingand would re-e stablish an already created channel. (The channel was p ermited and constructed in 1982.) The channel would benefit b oaters and beach goers greatly due to the considera bly low levels of Lake Jackson. In periods of low water, such as the one we are in now,there is an issue gettingb oats into the water,City Administrator Scott N oethlich stated at the March 5 meeting. Though no action was t aken,council members had plenty of opinion about how the project could be done if iti s voted into play. Other agenda items include a new restaurant proposal for the city of Sebring, property re-zoning anda nnexations and three public hearings for land use/zoning. Representatives from the Golden Corral franchise have been in contact with city stafft o discuss a potential property purchase of city-owned land along U.S. 27. A site plan has been drawn up and given to city officials for consideration which reveal ap ossible lay out of the restaurant. F ollowing the discussion of the potential sale of the property,council membersw ill consider furthering the project by discussing adjustm ents to the water system outlay,engineering specifics and other details.

C M Y K T his editorial is not about medical care or politics. It is about good news and bad. Heres the good news about Sebrings city electionT uesday:There was no waiting in line,it did not take long to count the votes andt he voting tallies were uncontroversial. Now heres the bad news: O f the 5,501 registered voters within Sebrings city limi ts,only 278 bothered to vote. That rounds up to about 5 percent. C ity Councilman John Griffin,who won re-election, b lamed the media for the low turn-out saying we had not publicized the election, n or covered it well. We must agree that we did not do the thorough job our readers expect and need to be responsible citizens. TheS unday before the election, for example,we didnt mention it at all. T hat will never happen again. We cannot agree with C ouncilman Griffin,however,when he lays sole respons ibility for the miserable turn-out on the media. Surely the candidates have a n equal responsibility to fire up citizens and get them i nvolved. If candidates dont put out any effort,why should citizens bother to put any effort into them? O n the other hand,the fact is elected municipal officials put a lot of time,energy and m oney into their work, which amounts to volunteering,the stipend is so low. Why should candidates t ake part in public forums or spend money on their campaigns boosting the local economy by the way when 95 percent of regist ered voters stay home? A nd dont prattle on about a pathy being a sign of cont entment. It is not. Highlands County has a long history of poor turnouts,except in presidentiale lections,and even then the numbers are nothing to brag a bout. We urge voters to engage in the next municipal election. Surely if youre happyw ith the way things are going,its not too much to ask you to actually re-elect the officials responsible. After all,if some of our n eighbors are willing to sacrifice their time and energy, serving the community making decisions most of us prefer to avoid the least we can do is turn out in num-b ers to say thank you. Beyond that,high turno uts at the polls attract attention especially from elected officials whose jobsd epend on public approval. By voting,in other words, y ou do more than fulfill a civic responsibility,you serve your own interests. Next time:Vote.

Good. And,by the way, h a. Ha. Ha. Its nice to know there is a judge somewhere that has some sense. And the whole thing strikes me as funnya nyway. Mayor Bloomberg promi sed to appeal the ruling, according to an article on the New York Timeswebs ite. He defended the ban, saying it would save lives. Obesity kills. Theres no question it kills. For those who dont k now what Im talking about,let me explain. Last year New York Citys Board of Health passed a ban on the sale of sugaryd rinks in containers larger than 16 ounces. It was supp osed to go into effect last Tuesday,but was struckd own before it could happen. The ban was hailed by some as a shot in the war against obesity. Othersf ound it ridiculous and contradictory milkshakes, for example,were exempt. And there were those who saw it as a civil libertiesi ssue should the government be telling us what size soda we could drink? As I scanned articles on the topic to prepare for this column,a statement by one person supporting the ban struck me. Found again on the New York Times website,a 48-year-old diabetic was quoted as saying,If we dont look out for ourselves ... its good that somebody is looking out for us. Say what? What about personal responsibility?What about people making intelligent choices on their own? Do we really WANT the government to look out for us? Where does this kind of thing end? Today the government decides what size soda we can buy. Tomorrow might they give a maximum number of calories allowed in an entre? Limit the size of hamburgers? Ban fried foods? Dont laugh. It could happen.Who thought thed be trying to limit the size of sugary drinks? Look,I know what eati ng and drinking a lot of high-calorie stuff can result i n. I see the results on the scale. But I dont blame the government,the fastf ood industry,or anyone else for being overweight. O ne person is accountable for that me. (For the record,I dont d rink sugary sodas,having partaken of diet soda these many years. I freely admit to being a Diet Dr. Pepper addict.Soda isnt my prob-l em.) I also agree that obesity is not just my problem. Many people are in my situation. In fact,that numberi s growing. Should we be concerned about that? S ure. But does that mean the government starts play-i ng with a heavy hand in peoples lives? We need to quit thinking of government as some sort of parent,treating us ase rrant children who dont know whats good for us. Its not the governments job to make sure we eat right.That,dear readers,f alls on us. I hope that Mayor Bloomberg finds something else to obsess about. I understand that he wants to leave the job having made his mark somehow. But this is just silly.And who wants to be remembered for doing something silly as mayor? Meanwhile,at least for now,New Yorkers can drink their large sugary drinks in peace.But keep an eye on this case.Today, its your soda tomorrow, who knows?Could be your favorite snack food.Give government in inch,and thell take your foot-long. Let the government mind their own waistline,and ll mind mine,thank you very much. Big soda Lauras Look L aura Ware Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Much to be understood in the wordsEditor: You were missed Sunday in Lake Placid by the Church of Christ if you did not attend any church assembly Sunday. Not only do you know your reason for not attending,but more important,God knows and He cares. A seat is always saved for you in Lake Placid Church of Christ,even if the building is for sale. Come fellowship and worship with us. We learn every time we gather that way we also grow. Come grow with us,wont you please? Creston Frezzell teaches Sunday for the adults at 9 a.m. Bring your Bible and follow along. Your Bible is the only book you will be studying. This is the only map for us to follow,for us to walk so that we are pleasing to our Father. If you have not been studying,this is the time and place to start. At 11 a.m. Creston again opens the Bible for us to learn. Did you know that was a very important word used in the Bible. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word,and the Word was with God,and the Word was God.John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life:and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore,and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father,and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. You can see that what is after the word andis just as important as what is before. Sunday at 6 p.m. we sing and watch So the Word Might Know. What a good learning experience this is. Wednesday at 7 p.m. Frank Parker opens the Bible and also your eyes with that he points out in the word. He taught us a little about our heart. Jeremiah 29:13 And ye shall seek me,and find me,when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Psalms 119:2 Blessed are those who keep His testimonies,Who seek Him with the whole heart! We must be careful with conscience,look at one example given us,Acts 23:1 And Paul,earnestly beholding the council,said,Men and brethren,I have lived in all good conscience before God until this day. Ask Frank about his friends quote about Pure Butter Fat. Hope to see you with open the Bible where the Church of Christ meets in Lake Placid on route 27. Chapman Chamberlin SebringTheft of States Rights is criminalEditor: The thief of States Rights, by the executive branch of government and the selfappointed gang of eight and a sitting president,is criminal. The Supreme Court,the governors and attorney generals of every state should all file criminal charges against the group. Reagans amnesty has destroyed every state financially and economically. The more than 50 years of debate over the selling of citizenship is over. Seal our southern border with Mexico. The wrath of 50 million unemployed Americans in the near future demands self deport,while there is still time. Our military has had no qualms about killing those who invade and pose a threat to our way of government. Our very freedom is at stake. I would say to those in political power who are the lap dogs for an industry that wants more and more of cheap labor,that your days of government service are over.The takeover of our two political parties and American jobs by an illegal, invading workforce is also over,to the illegal I would say go home. Our elected officials were hired to serve, not to dictate to the people. Demand that the American military close our borders to Mexico. The debate of illegals in America is over. Its been going on for more than 50 years. It is no longer in the hands of our elected officials,that no American trusts. Its in every Americans hand. It affects all Americans and their social programs and their very lives. It affects our military,our unemployed,the funds for all veterans,it touches the lives of Americans yet unborn. The 23 million unemployed that will double in the near future. ... Class warfare is right around the corner with the illegals. Americas economic downturn will pit class against class. In the near future,America is looking at more than 50 million people out of work. Mexico has a four percent unemployed workforce. Common sense requires that you go home. You and your brothers and sisters have done what no foreign nation has been able to do,you have collapsed the American financial system and its political system. ... Billie E. Jewett Sebring Where were you at election time?

The new m oniker represents the merger of the American Le Mans S eries presented by Tequila Patron and the GRAND-AM Road Racing series. The two organizations had revealed their merger thisp ast September but only presented their branding and new logo Thursday in a press conference at the Chateau Elan Hotel & Spa alongside the Raceways famous Hairpin turn. F ans also got their first glimpse of the new D eltaWing coupe. The sleek racer was put on display for the first time Friday inS ebrings paddock area. The original DeltaWing, w hich features an open cockpit,made its debut at last years 12 Hours with a num-b er of exhibition laps around the storied track. That car,now in a chrome a nd red livery,ran in competition in the LMP1 division at t his years grand prix of endurance. Fans were treated early on by a flawless race,unspoiled by yellow flags or any on-t rack incidents to slow the action. As expected,the whispering Audis,as they were described,led the 42car field around the 17-turn circuit that the marquee has dominated for better than ad ecade. It is the last race for Audi i n the top division of the sport,although it is expected fans will see Audi return ine nsuing years in the GT class. As part of their soc alled farewell tour,the Audi motorsport experience was displayed at their TurnO ne compound. The display featured former winning cars,with past w inners Marco Werner,Frank Biela,Emanuele Pirro and D indo Capello there at various times to meet and speak with the fans. As of noon Saturday,the 61st Mobil 1 12 Hours ofS ebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida looked to be a great send off to the American LeMans Series presented by Tequila Patron.

C M Y K tions old family cabin in the N orth Carolina woods the one with the shady porch,the rocking chair and the view. Last year we only spent 13 days at the cabin out of3 65,Langford said. I intend to use it more. Getting ready to step away from the judicial system after about 26 years on the bench,L angford looked back on how different everything was when he started working in t he Highlands County Courthouse in 1975. The biggest change is how much the population has grown,the judge said. In1 975,there were about 42,000 people,now its 100,000. When I started as an assistant state attorney therew as only one full-time and one part-time position. Today there are seven or eight. Back when Langford was starting out,there was onlyo ne resident judge in H ighlands County and none in Hardee. Today Hardee has its own resident judge and Highlands County has four circuit court judges and onec ounty court judge. Because circuit court judges rotate divisions every 18 months to two years, Langford said his careerr emained challenging and never boring. From Jan. 1, 2007 to June 30,2011,he served as chief judge. Despite the larger case l oads,Langford said crime i tself hasnt changed all that much. People are people, he said. There will always be differences of opinion and conflicts. O ne thing Langford misses is the way things were more relaxed then. All four doors into the building were open all day.P eople just came and went as they liked,he said. Langford said the reason he announced his retirement early is to give the 10thJ udicial Circuit time to find a replacement before he leaves. Appointing a judge is a time-consumi ng process. All applications must be reviewed by a committee that narrows the list down to six. That list is sent to the governor who makest he final selection. Consistency is important,Langford said,one person doing the same thing. When judges stand in for onea nother,or cover a vacancy, the courtroom changes with them. Kenny Vincent,a deputy sheriff at the courthouse,hasb een watching judges come and go for a long time. Theres nobody finer, Vincent said of Langford. Hes as fine a person as you ever want to meet. Hes just a perfect gentleman. There is no facade. And thats not just my opinion; its shared bye verybody who knows him. Sixty-two is a good age to retire,Langford said. Im ready to sit and look at the mountains,spending timew ith our grand kids and enjoying days at church. Last words of advice? Just do what your parents taught you,and if you sayy oure going to do something,do it. R AYMOND HALL Raymond Alan Hall,69, of Avon Park,Fla.,passed away on Thursday,March 14,2013.

There are seven tables with movingp arts each has a different motion to tone muscles, i ncrease circulation,regain range of motion and mobility, and release stress. Its asm uch prevention as it is rehabilitation. C andidates for joint replacement surgery or recovering,benefit greatly, Pieretti said. Before surgery it helps strengthen the bodyf or the procedure and helps p romote healing afterwards. It is excellent for people post rehab and maintains h ealth,Pierette said. Bea Lonergan,in her mid80s,but looking closer to 65, h as been taking advantage of the exercise program for about a year. It makes a big difference,she said. Its reallyg ood for the leg muscles and stomach and keeps you nice a nd limber. Its great fun. Pieretti said the typical program has individualss pending up to 10 minutes on each of the seven machines. In a little over an hour, youve had a complete workout.Pieretti said. The moste ffective routine is to come three days a week. HALLO,which is a unique p rogram,has been in Highlands for close to three d ecades,but it has always been a struggle to build up a local clientele. It persists in being a too well kept secret, Pieretti said. T he center is open to the public. It costs $4 a session. The cost is kept down as an incentive,made possible by volunteer workers. Y early memberships for $25 are available. In addition to the exercise center,HALLO takes part in many health fairs and runss upport groups at various regular venues:The first T hursday of the month for people with traumatic brain injuries; the second Thursdayf or amputees and the third Thursday for those with low v ision.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Sean Rayhall of Comprent Motor Sports led the Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Powered by Mazda field to the green flag for Fridays 45-minute timed Race 2 at Sebring International Raceway. But ultimately, it was Performance Tech once again taking the top spot on the L1 podium, this time with Ryan Booth behind the wheel. Nearly immediately after the green flag flew over Rayhall, a full-course caution was implemented due to an incident in Turn 13 as the No. 88 car of Dan Weyland spun into the wall and sustained significant damage to the left front and rear of his lan DP02, Eurosport Racing entry. The field went green again on Lap 2, and Ryan Booth took advantage of the restart to pass his Performance Tech teammate Daniel Goldburg for second position. After a few frenzied laps the Prototype Lites drivers settled in with Rayhall focusing forward and gaining a four-second advantage on second-place Booth by lap 7. Running out front with an unobstructed track, Rayhall bested the race lap record he set in Race 1 at Sebring witha flying lap of 1:58.732. On lap 9 Race 1 winner Daniel Goldburg lost control of his Performance Tech car while closely pursuing Ryan Booth for second position and spun nose first into the Turn 1 wall, bringing out a full course caution. e were racing hard, Goldburg said. I followed my teammate Ryan (Booth into Turn 1 and I got a little off of my line. I hit a bump and the whole thing ended up coming around on me. The green flag flew again on lap 12 giving third-place Goikhberg a strong run on Ryan Booth for second position, but his momentum was slowed by another full course caution brought out when Owen Kratz spun in Turn 7 and collected Jim Garretts Eurosport Racing car. The next restart gave Ryan Booth the break he needed to pass Sean Rayhall for the lead, which he held onto until the checkered flag flew two laps later. I didnt know if I was going to pull out the win today because I was in second for most of the race, Booth said. I got a few breaks with the full-course cautions and just barely squeezed by Rayhall at the end in Turn 1. Im super stoked and want to thank everyone at Performance Tech for giving me an awesome car Booths victory was his second win in Cooper Tires Prototype Lites Powered by Mazda competition.

By DAN HOEHNE d email@example.comIt has been a rough and tumble season for the 2013 Baseball Panthers of SFSC, but things had been looking up recently before Fridays 6-5 loss at Polk State College. S itting on a 5-24 record, 0-5 in the Suncoast Conference, after a March 6 loss to Hillsborough, the team got itself on a bit of a roll. The Panthers earned their first conference win on Friday, March 8, taking a 2-0 win at Hillsborough to salvage one game of the threegame series, and then swept a doubleheader the following day over the University of Tampas Junior Varsity squad. Justin Machado pitched effectively in the 3-1, opening game win and Kevin Schubert followed it up with a o ne-run performance of his own. Carlos Matamoros had two hits and two RBI, while Josh Townsend went 2-for3 with an RBI and run scored in the 5-1, nightcap win. Four days later, SFSC made it four in a row with an 8-4 win over Lincolnland Community College (IL Wednesday, March 13. Submariner Zach Bailey got the win on the mound and Matamoros again rapped out two hits and scored twice. Former Blue Streak Seth Abeln also added two base knocks, scoring once, and Jordan Rivera had two RBI on the day. R evitalized by their good play of late, the Panthers headed to Winter Haven to face a top-notch Eagle team that came in with a 23-6 record overall. e played a lot better and had the lead late in the game, sophomore infielder Lucas Bagnara said. We were hitting better and had Panther streak stopped at Polk See SFSC, Page B5 Polk State6S FSC5 News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Assistant coach Heather Barnes gives some advice to Amanda Byers in a recent Lady Panther win. By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgA n 18-17 non-conference record can mean a lot of things. Some big wins, a few i nfuriating losses were mixed within that record, o f course, but it all amounts to a learning c urve. And really, that is the s ole purpose of the nonconference schedule, giving the team the time and experience to grow through the rough patches and find out what is the best way to win. es, we had a few rough games where some of the mistakes we were making, there was no excuse for, shortstop Lexi Belardi said. It started to get in our heads and stressed us out. But we all got back into the mindset to just relax and play like we know how, she continued. Its really turned around quickly, thankfully That seems to have been accomplished as the Lady Panthers now head into their Suncoast Conference schedule on an upward trend, winning three out of four games this past week. Tuesday saw a road trip to face Broward and South Florida came away with a split that was close to being a sweep. After routing the Seahawks 8-1 in the opener, the Panthers came up just short in a 5-4, secondgame loss. Thursday had the team back on the road to face a Pasco-Hernando squad that had swept South Florida on March 7 two of those infuriating losse s. But the Lady Panthers h ad their revenge in taking two from the Conquistadors. Alexis Adams got the w in on the mound in the opener, a 7-5 victory, b efore the two teams went an extra inning in the n ightcap. But they pulled it out in t he eighth, getting a 4-3 win for pitcher Gennifer Raulerson. The past few games weve been having fun and keeping our cool, but still doing really well, Belardi said. So long as we keep that up, were golden. That is the hope, as the Suncoast Conference looks loaded. Each team has a winning non-conference record, with the State College of Florida at 25-9, Polk State at 25-10, Hillsborough at 26-15 and St. Petersburg at 21-18. But with the talent assembled more aware of what it takes to succeed, the Panthers look to make their mark. Theyre looking better, assistant coach Heather Barnes said. Theyre starting to hit more to the right side and make the adjustments they need to win games. I think theyre going to be a serious contender this year in conference if they come out and play to their ability One more non-conference game remains on the docket with a Tuesday home date against Sante Fe, with the Suncoast schedule getting underway with a Thursday visit from the Polk State Eagles. Lady Panthers get set for Suncoast Drivers, start your engines!

C M Y K By STEVEN WINE Associated PressMIAMI Once again, the United States could only watch as an opposing pitcher celebrated at the World Baseball Classic. This time it was 38-yearold right-hander Nelson Figueroa, who became the pride of Puerto Rico on Friday night when he led his team into the semifinals and eliminated the Americans, 4-3. After Figueroa threw his last pitch to end the sixth inning, he leaped off the mound with a hoot like a kid at recess, then ran to catcher Yadier Molina to share a hug. On Thursday, demonstrative Dominicans dominated the All-Star-laden U.S. lineu p. The Americans endured a scoreless streak of 14 innings spanning the two defeats, and Figueroa limited them to two singles in six shutout innings. J.C. Romero escaped a bases-loaded jam in the eighth and retired the final four batters for his first save. The last out triggered a pileup of Puerto Ricans behind the mound. T hey advanced for the first time to the semifinals, which begin Sunday in San F rancisco. They were to play the Dominican Republic on Saturday in the final game in Miami, which will determine seedings for the championship round. Two-time defending champion Japan and the Netherlands round out the final four. Figueroa (2-0 est 20-35 record for six teams in nine major-league seasons, with his most recent big-league game in May 2011. After pitching in Triple-A last year, he dominated the Americans, allowing only a single by Brandon Phillips in the fourth and a single by Jimmy Rollins in the sixth. Puerto Rico lost to the U nited States 7-1 on Tuesday, then staved off elimination Wednesday, rallying from a 3-1 deficit int he eighth inning to beat Italy. T he hits kept coming Friday, and the Puerto R icans scored all four runs with two out. M ike Aviles had an RBI single in the first, and Andy Gonzalez doubled home two runs in the sixth. Ryan Vogelsong (1-1 gave up two runs in 5 2-3 innings. When Figueroa hit the tournaments 80-pitch limit, Giovanni Soto came on and gave up an RBI single to Giancarlo Stanton in the seventh. Trailing 4-1, the Americans continued their rally in the eighth. Rollins and Phillips sing led off Jose De La Torre, and Ryan Braun followed with an RBI double. Joe Mauer walked to load t he bases, and with two out, Fernando Cabrera walked B en Zobrist to force in a run and make it 4-3. E ric Hosmer then grounded out again Romero, who f ollowed with a perfect ninth. The crowd of 19,762 was smaller and more subdued than on Thursday, when the Dominican Republic transformed the ballpark into a Caribbean carnival by beating the United States. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, March 17, 2013Page B3 WELLS MOTOR COMPANY; 11.25"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, used cars; 00028453 e nd of the 2012 race season in Race 1 at Petit Le Mans Powered by Mazda.

The speedy Sebring nativedid set the race lap record with a time of2:30.727. That translates into an average 89.327 mph around the 3.74 mile circuit.

Its a little bittersweet with Christian it came one year too late Dean followed his Thursday performance with a second podium appearance Friday afternoon, scoring a third place finish in round two of the series. E lliott Skeer, of Vista, C alif., made a dramatic move in the last turn of that second race to break Szymczaks first-race domination. Dean scored a third-place finish. He was in contention for most of the race, even having led lap two. Szymczak, however, repassed Dean to take second. Christian was really defensive and I was looking to get by wherever I could, Dean said. The gap never really opened up for me.

The former New York Jet signed a one-year contract with the Dolphins. He said he wanted to join a playoff contender and likes the Dolphinschances under coach Joe Philbin in 2013. Coach Philbin is putting all the pieces together to win now, Keller said. This team is in a position to win, and thats what were going to do. The Dolphins are coming off their fourth consecutive losing season, but they did finish a game ahead of the Jets at 7-9, and optimism is high in the wake of several free agent moves this week. The Dolphins signed receiver Mike Wallace and re-signed receiver Brian Hartline. With those wideouts and Keller, who has 17 career touchdown catches, Miami should be better able to spread the field for young quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Ive been following him for a while, Keller said. He does a great job. To have a guy who can work the middle of the field and stretch the field, I think I can really help him out. There are a lot of pieces, and Im just happy to be one o f those pieces. Keller was slowed by a left ankle injury last year and made 28 catches for 317 yards and two scores in eight games. It was pretty frustrating, he said. This is a fresh start for me. Its an opportunity to go somewhere and re-prove myself. The Dolphins acquired Keller to replace Anthony Fasano, their starting tight end the past four years. He signed Tuesday with the Kansas City Chiefs. Keller has 20 catches of at least 25 yards over the past five years, compared with 11 for Fasano. Keller agrees to deal with Miami The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN

Get rid of that Spring Fever By YURI KAGEYAMA AP Business WriterTOKYO Boeing said Friday it sees commercial flights of its grounded 787 jets resuming within weeks even though it has not pinpointed the cause of battery overheating. Boeing Co. Chief Project Engineer Michael Sinnett outlined a fix centered on a new design for the lithiumion battery system that has layers of safeguards to prevent overheating and measures to contain malfunctions. e could be back up and going in weeks and not months,Sinnett told reporters at a Tokyo hotel. A third of safety tests have already been completed. A Japanese official said it was possible flights could resume next month. The 787 fleet was grounded worldwide by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration,its counterparts in Japan and other nations in January,following a battery fire in a Dreamliner parked in Boston and an overheated battery that led to an emergency landing of another 787 in Japan. All Nippon Airways,a major Japanese carrier,was the launch customer for the technologically advanced Dreamliner planes. With Japan Airlines another customer,about half the jets are with Japanese carriers. Special to the News-SunSEBRING Downtown Sebring is more than just the Circle and itss pokes.Its a collection of diverse and unique people who all fell in love with the City on the Circle. And each and every one of thosep eople has a story to tell. Kathy Doherty believes people should visit Downtown Sebring so they can be surprised by the new shops opening around theC ircle and its spokes,and to explore and consider for t hemselves the possibility ofs tarting their own b usiness with startup and property enhancement funds provided by theS ebring Community Redevelopment Agency ( CRA). I see a return to busynessin DowntownS ebrings future,she said. People aresearching out d estinations that allow for exploration,relaxation,and entertainment.Wve beenw orking well to become that destination. Originally from C incinnati,Doherty started coming to Sebring to visit h er cousins and was permanently lured to the sunny weather more than 20 years ago. About 10 years after her move,she purchasedh er main business,Kathys Consignment Boutique, from the previous owner and was soon in need of more space. She purchased the stores current location, a Cracker-style,charming h ouse at 659 S. Commerce Ave.,and soon expanded h er inventory to include mens consignment as well as ladies. Doherty notes the resilience of the DowntownS ebring core that is now emerging from a downcycle economy into a vibrant,attractive and desirable place to be as the merchants have joined together to get through a strained economy and theS ebring CRA has stepped up to market Downtown Sebring to increase visitors. Her store provides a u nique niche in the Downtown Sebring retail mix as she uses careful selection in providing her customers with tasteful, affordable style that com-p liments them and is age and event-appropriate. By d efinition,consignment offers a two-fold purpose: 1) a chance to sell what isg ood but no longer needed and 2) a chance to buy what i s often not available anywhere else. I hear compliments everyday on the selection,organization,andt he appeal of my shop,and that shopping here is an e njoyable experience,she said.They also appreciate the networking we do toh elp them find what there looking for,even if I don't h ave it in my shop. Its fun to see people enjoying themselves.Its a rare dayt hat I dont enjoy coming to work. In 2012,she purchased a nother Downtown Sebring building at 301 Circle Park D rive,formerly Gilberts Drug Store. When her friend and fellow consignment store owner Tami Boss of Still Chic Boutiqueo utgrew her space,Kathy and Tami teamed up to move Still Chic into the 301 building,which is now referred to as Galleria 301. With her second large investment downtown,D oherty felt it was time to get more involved,and she j oined the CRA board in early 2013. She is also a part of the Destination Downtown Sebring (DDS group that plans and coor-d inates monthly,themed events the second Friday of each month.

B oth Statler and Willis can b e contacted at any one of the three Heartland Workforce locations and on Monday, Wednesday or Friday in Highlands,or Tuesday or T hursday in DeSoto or H ardee. Questions to consider when deciding to come to a Heartland Workforce OneS top Career Center to visit a v eterans representative: S hould out-of-work veterans call ahead for an appointment before visiting a H eartland Workforce OneS top Career Center for the first time,and how long does the initial visit typically take? No appointment is necessary any staff member can serve you as a walk-in; h owever,there are times w hen the veterans representatives will make appointments to assure their availability to better serve you. Each meeting with a veterans representative,or any staff member, can take 20-30 minutes. Veterans can speed things up by registering online ahead of time on the Employ Florida Marketplace website at www.employflorida.com, and entering their personal general information,a resume,and the basic background information. The following website offers additional guidance and assist ance to veterans: www.employflorida.com/port als/veteran. Along with job referrals provided to you by staff,employers also use thes ystem to locate qualified candidates; therefore,the m ore information you enter into the system,the better your chances of landinge mployment. W hat should veterans bring with them for their first visit? For their initial meeti ng with a veterans representative,the veteran should bring a copy of their Department of Defense form DD214 (their discharge doc-u ment) and a copy of their resume. This provides the veterans representative with information on your history and work experience. This ish elpful whether you are considering training,additional e ducation,or employment. The veterans representat ive will conduct an initial assessment of your skills, needs,work history,prior training,and goals. This information helps in makingr ecommendations for training or other services,or jobs,and whether you are looking for full-time or part-time employment. What if the veteran doesnt have a resume,and isnt sure how to prepare one? Resume writing workshops are available at each Heartland Workforce One-Stop Career Center.

All services are at no cost. Is there a dress code,even unofficially,for veterans vis-i ting a Heartland Workforce One-Stop Career Center? As a rule of thumb,you should be dressed appropriately for all job-search activities.M any times,Heartland Workforce is hosting employe rs interested in interviewing someone on the spot; or we may be on the phone with an e mployer who wants a qualified candidate referred immediately.Services are designed to help prepare the veteran to be ready to meet an employera t a moments notice. Is there any reason for a veteran who is struggling to find work,to be embarrassedo r hesitant about meeting with a veterans representat ive? Absolutely not. Heartland Workforce honorso ur military veterans and is grateful for their service. V eterans representatives are veterans themselves,and have likely seen or experienced many of the situations that may be of concern. S o whether you have recently been released from t he military,are a veteran who recently lost their job,or are a veteran thinking aboutm aking a career change take time to visit a Heartland W orkforce location and meet with one of the veteran representatives.

Wve seen signs,such as t racks and scat from the bears,but now we know without a doubt that thesec reatures pass through this area. Jim loves to walk diff erent areas of the Preserve and photograph wildlife. He is more than willing to share his photos with county staff, which enables us to recordh is sightings and have a better knowledge of what travels through the Preserve. Jim got started w ith the hobby of wildlife photography as a very young boy. He found joy while roaming thef ields and woods around his home. He said, My dad introduced me to fishing and hunting a t a very young age and he taught me to enjoy my surroundings and my life in rev-e rence to Gods gift. Over the years,I came to understand what Dad meant as Is at in a tree stand and watched the doe,fawns, f oxes,etc.,living their lives while I silently observed with wonder. I began notic-i ng the call of the geese and the ducks,the pheasants,the s quirrels,the deer and especially the hawks. I thrilled at the sound of the beatings of wings in the air. I developed a strange relationship to theC hickadees,as every year a flock would visit me on my deer watch. It was like meeting old friends. I knew that all was well with the world. J im still enjoys his time in nature,but he finds that, with the years,he is no longer capable of roaming the hills and woods as he didw hen he was a young boy. So about three years ago,he decided to attempt wildlife photography,where he didnt have to travel far by foot butc ould still enjoy the wonders of nature. Jim shared,As I winter in F lorida,I searched for an area to practice my hobby. As luck would have it,some-o ne suggested the Sun N Lake Nature Preserve nearb y. Well,what a wonderful place it is! Filled with manicured trails large and small,i ntriguingponds,and woods of oak and cypress trees to b e enjoyed by hikers,bicyclists,birdwatchers,fishermen,nature lovers of all ages and,yes,photographers. I found the Sun NL ake Preserve to be a serene place to relax the soul and p lace ones life back into perspective. I do not want to leave out the myriad of wildl ife that inhabits this awesome preserve. I have succ essfully photographed the elusive Florida panther,bobcats,Florida black bear, deer,coyotes,wild turkey, vultures,raccoons,opossumsa nd those ever present armadillos. I have had occas ion to meet with two of the folks who manage this Sun N Lake Nature Preserve and i t is immediately obvious as to why this Preserve is one of the hidden jewelsint his wonderful world of ours. W e meet with Jim often to see what he has captured on his cameras. It is always a pleasure and we wait with childlike anticipation to seew hat new photos he has. With limited staff and r esources,the Highlands County Parks & Natural Resources staff is certainly g rateful for folks like Jim. He benefits from sharing his passion and we benefit froml earning more about this amazing treasure of H ighlands County.

Arranging care of a beloved pet for an extended absence can be daunting. Knowingw hat to look for in a kennel, and what to look out for,can help you choose wisely.Ask aroundamily and friends can be a good source of recommend ations,says Christi Olszewski,registered veterinary technologist (RVT) andi nstructor at Brown Mackie College Albuquerque. our veterinarian is also ag ood reference point.Scout out facilitiesBe sure to tour a facility b efore boarding your pet. Ask to see everything,not just a single room or two, says Dr. Barry Kellogg,senior veterinary advisor for theH umane Society Veterinary Medical Association. H ere are some factors to consider during your tour: Cleanliness:Floors,runs a nd kennels should be clean and free of debris. Light and ventilation: The interior should be bright, with odors whisked away. Cage size:Each animal needs space for a bed,plus room to move. For cats,the s pace also should accommodate a litter box,and offer a p lace to hide. Exercise runs:Runs are usually located both inside and out; those with a doublegated entry provide extras ecurity. Separation of dogs and cats:Ideally,cats and dogs are kept in separate rooms, not just separate enclosures; i t can be highly stressful for cats to reside near unfamiliar canines.Who are the caretakers?Most kennels wont have a veterinarian on staff; however,the staff should bet rained and experienced,and include at least one RVT with t echnical knowledge of health concerns and elderly pets,says Olszewski.K ellogg reminds pet owners to watch staff interaction w ith your pet. You want to see if they can sense the personality,and understand ani-m al communication and behavior.The experts also advise to ask about the ratio o f staff to pets. The fewer animals each staffer is r esponsible for,the more individual attention your pet is likely to receive.Daily activityAsk about the daily routine,the number and lengtho f walks and exercise sessions,Olszewski advises. Exercise should occur more frequently than is necessary for bladder relief. K ellogg suggests defining xercise.Do they put him i n a run by himself,or is there a person there with hands-on interaction? Some dogs prefer to go running alone. Other animals wouldb ecome highly stressed without human playtime,he s ays. He also recommends against group play. Dogs are pack animals, b ut the pack is hierarchal. There will be issues. This is a lways the risk associated with group play,he says. When boarding a cat, b eware the cat condo structures with lots of cubbyholes. A big castle may look a ppealing,but the carpeted surfaces pose a sterility probl em. It cannot be cleaned thoroughly,and can become a source of disease,Kellogg says.Individual needs and preferencesEven though the Humane Society of the United States names boarding kennels as a known cause of stress in pets,y ou can take steps to help calm your furry friend. Providing a familiar blanket or sleeping pad can help to reduce anxiety associatedw ith being in different surroundings,Olszewski says. This stress coupled with a sudden change in diet can lead to gastro-intestinalu pset. I recommend providing the kennel food your pet regularly eats. If your dog is on medication,ask about the administration procedure. Most facil-i ties will give medications, but some will not. Ask ahead o f time to be sure.Safety issuesSafety is the most important thing you want for yourp et. Here are some important issues to address. Vaccination policy:Look for a strict vaccination policy,verified through a veterinarian; unvaccinated animals could threaten the health ofv accinated ones. Aggressiveanimal s creening:You will no doubt feel better if aggressive animals are not permitted. ER clinic affiliation: Many kennels have a cont ract with a local ER clinic; an RVT on staff is trained to know what to look for and w hen to take an animal for treatment. On-site supervision overnight:Is someone on the premises 24 hours a day? Disaster plan:Fires, floods and earthquakes happen. Ask for details of the facilitys plan to be sure they have one in place. Brandpoint Boarding your four-legged family member P et owners have many responsibilities,and keeping your pet healthy withv eterinary care is a significant one. To help make sure y our pet receives high quality medical care,several veterinarians offer adviceo n how to find the right vet for your pet. A good way to begin your search for a high quality veterinary practice is to ask for recommendations from friends and family,s ays Dr. Meredith Hope, fulltime Veterinary T echnology instructor -at Brown Mackie College Louisville. Word of mouthf rom people with experience as a client can be valua ble. You can also read online reviews and look at veterinary websites for i nformation on specific doctors and practices. Dr. Barry Kellogg,senior veterinary advisor of the Humane Society VeterinaryM edical Association,-suggests paring down your list of options by looking for a practice that is certified by American Animal HospitalA ssociation (AAHAThis independent organization h as developed accreditation standards to measure excellence in veterinary medi-c ine. AAHA represents the gold standard in quality, K ellogg says. Certification is voluntary and shows that a practice goes above and b eyond to ensure certain standards are met both for t he doctors and the facility. Practices grow by developing relationships that show you are valued as a client,says Hope. Thet emperament and qualifications of the overall staff say a lot about the practice. Staff members trained as registered veterinary tech-n icians (RVTs) are a good sign of quality care,cont inues Hope. The training provides clinical competence and technical knowle dge. One of the first things many people notice about the veterinarian is his or her bedside manner. Are youc omfortable talking to and listening to this person? Keep in mind you are looking for a medical expert; you want to weigh moret han personality. Brandpoint How to find the right vet for your pet
C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c email@example.comAVON PARK Some students learn easily,others have problems thinking straight,only learning from their mistakes. Such is the case with an 18-year-old student at Avon Park High School who is learning the hard way. The students alleged first mistake on Feb.19,was stealing a Samsung Galaxy Prevail cell phone from the bos locker room. He was arrested March 8 and is charged with a felony larceny grand theft of property valued between $300 to $5,000. The reason the student has been charged in the theft is because of his second mistake on Feb. 19. He used the cell phone while in school. Cell phone use is against school board policy.As a result of being caught using the phone,it was confiscated from him by a teacher. When Dean Tom Zwayer was made aware of the alleged theft,he recalled the teacher taking a Samsung Galaxy Prevail phone from the student. Retrieving the cell phone from the teacher, it matched the description of the stolen phone. Zwayer secured it in an envelope, writing the students name on the front. The student was arrested Friday and booked into the county jail at about 1:30 p.m. Bond was set at $1,000. He wasnt released until more than two days later,on Sunday,March 10 at 10:30 p.m. His first court date is April 15. Associated PressL OS ANGELES CBS Corp. is rolling out past seasons of The Good Wife online,the first time the broadcaster is allowing Internet access to a drama that is still airing new episodes on TV. The deal announced Wednesday means that the first three seasons of the hit crime show will be available starting Thursday to fans who pay for Amazon.coms Prime membership,which costs $79 a year. Hulu Plus subscribers who pay $8 a month will be able to see the back seasons of the show in September. The fourth season of the show wraps up in March and the fifth season is expected in t he fall. CBS had previously not licensed shows that were still on air to online video providers. It lifted that restriction with some reality TV shows such as Survivor and The Amazing Race, which began playing on Hulu Plus in January. CBS was the last among t he broadcasters to see the benefit of putting back seasons of currently airing TV shows online. After studying the matter, executives came to believe that putting shows that have season-long story lines online allows fans to catch up.

T he Heartland Educational Consortium s erves as a partner in this grant as well,providings upport and training for the three districts involved. The schools were selected because of the commitment and willingness fromd istrict and school leadership to implement the proven AVID system and work with professors from S outh Florida State College (SFSCThe districts have high poverty student populations and struggle with a lack of funds for innovation.N early half of the educators in each school will receive AVID training,with approximately 125 educators attending an AVID SummerI nstitute in the next three years. Approximately 60 professors from SFSC willa lso attend a Summer Institute to enhance the vertical teaming component oft he grant. Looking forward to learni ng more about and experiencing AVID,Hardee Senior High SchoolP rincipal Michele Polk said, The moreI learn about the A VID system,the more enthusiasticI become. Having spoken with principals who have already implemented AVID in theirs chools,whichfacemany of the same challengesas H SHS,it is clearto me thatour studentscan greatly benefit from the instructiona ndopportunities AVID will provide." T he AVID college readiness system is designed to give students options when t hey graduate from high school. AVID targets students in the academic middle who have college potential with support and equipst hem with the skills necessary to be successful in more rigorous coursework. AVID supports every student in the school by train-i ng teachers to use innovative strategies to increase u nderstanding of difficult material and become moree ngaged in their learning. Soon,the selection process for the AVID elective will begin. Students will be selected based ons pecific criteria as well as teacher recommendations. Students who are placed in the AVID elective will r eceive training in specific skills,which will help them to be critical thinkers,be organized students,and have success in honors anda dvanced courses. The AVID students will also have tutorials twice weekly during school the school day,which are conducted byc ollege students trained to guide students to find the answers on their own. TheA VID students will also have the opportunity to tour college campuses and hearf rom community leaders about different career path o pportunities. Nelson Stephenson, DeSoto Middle School prin-c ipal,agreed,At DeSoto Middle School,we are conf ident that implementing the AVID program will help us build a strong foundation for making positive connections with our students. Web elieve that pairing the rigor with the AVID focus on acad emic and emotional support will be key to making long-term significant posi-t ive impact for all of our students. T he grant will serve these schools for five years and intends to increase both the n umber of students who are college ready and the number of students who persist in college,as well as improve the teaching andl earning at each of the eight schools. The grant will also provide opportunities for teachers and professors to work collaboratively withins ubject areas to create consistency in the ways inform ation is presented at all levels. With AVIDs school-w ide college readiness focus,teachers throughout the schools will be using innovative strategies to help students become criticalt hinkers so that regardless of their future endeavors, they will be successful.

C M Y K Dear Abby: I wasd ivorced when my son was 9. Hesn ow 24. My exwife married the man she had been having an affair witha nd they have a 12-yearold son. I am also remarried and in a good place inm y life. For the past two years, my son has brought hish alf brother to our beach house for a weekend of f un. We honored this request and enjoy time with our son,but it is diffi-c ult having his half brother in my home. It brings up e motions I thought I had put behind me years ago. I do not want these visits to continue,and I need to communicate this. Id liket o have an adult conversation with my son to explain t he situation. How much do I tell him about my emotional reasons withoutb eing negative about his mom? I also dont think he should have to carry the news to my ex or disapp oint a 12-year-old. Should I send a simple note to her and explain that we will no longer host her son? Needs the Right Words D ear Needs: By all means write your ex. Explain that entertaining her son brings up emotions you would rather not havet o relive. Its not the bos fault that hes the flesha nd-blood symbol of his mothers infidelity,but youd ont have to have him there if you dont want to. If you would like to have a man-to-man talk with your son,go ahead and do it. Hes an adult.T ell him pretty much the same thing that having the boy over is painful for you and,therefore,you prefer the beach house vis-i ts stop. You are entitled to your feelings,and your son is old enough to appreciate them. D ear Abby: Im a widow,as are many of my friends these days.W idowhood is difficult. If youre not prepared,it can be horrible. Thats why Idl ike to urge women to learn to take care of themselves b ecause the odds are they will be alone sooner or later after the age of 50.S ome suggestions: 1. If you havent already, l earn to drive. 2. Learn to pump gas and how to check your tires and the fluids in your car. 3 Learn to use a few basic tools and do home r epairs. 4. Pay attention to financial matters such as balanc-i ng a checkbook. 5. Know where your r ecords are,whats in them and what information you will need for taxes. 6 Buy a shredder and shred unnecessary papers. 7. Make friends with other women. If you dont, life gets lonely. 8 Be courageous and do what you need to do to be happy. 9. Start to simplify your home. It will free yourm ind from clutter and,if necessary,allow you to m ove to smaller quarters. 10. Let your children l ead their lives,lead your own and present a cheerful face to the world! Kathleen in Duluth, Minn.

H ad I been shot? Had the rapture just happened? I couldnt see or hear anything. Then in just as quick an instant,the air bags deflated,the car filled with smoke and gagging fumes,and I knew where I was. We were celebrating our 31st wedding anniversary on a vacation in Georgia. Driving along,we came over a slight rise when we suddenly realized the vehicle in front of us had come to a complete stop in a moving left lane. Witnesses assured us there was no way we could have stopped and avoided hitting her. I was crying out to God as I saw the inevitable playing out before us. The collision and bangof the air bags deploying stopped all reasoning. It was as if we were gone and back within the same instant. The smok w as from the escaping air bag powder. Aside from some minor facial burns from the air bag and a sore eye from my glasses slamming against my left eye; we came away unscathed.The other driver was also spared injury,for which we are so grateful. But,our car was totaled. Suddenly like angels dropped from heaven,first responders were there taking care of our every need. Kindness and compassion abounded. The officers assured us that more accidents occur in that stretch of road because a left turn lane is so desperately needed. In the aftermath of the confusion,shock,and emotional trauma,our only response was praise to God for allowing us to walk away from what could have been so much worse. By His grace and mercy we were granted protection. And that got me to wonderi ng about how we were protected? Had angels cushioned the impact? Had they surrounded us within the car so the airbags did less harm? What other unseen care had been happening Im convinced as never before that there is greater reality in what we cannot see than what we can see. I know what I had been seeing before the impact; and,by faith,called out to the only One who could do anything about it. Since then,ve been reminded of Hebrews 11:1& 3,NKJV that says,Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,the evidence of things not seen By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God,so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. When the realities of our physical world threaten us, remember the ultimate reality of the unseen.

C M Y K he selection of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina as the next pope is an indication that the axis of influence in the Catholic Church has shifted from Europe to the Southern Hemisphere,where Catholicism is expanding in great numbers. Bergoglio,76,is a Jesuit from Buenos Aires. Hes the first pope from South America. He is the first pope to take the name of Francis. Equally important,the new pope is viewed as an advocate for the poor, who make up much of the Churchs flock in Latin America,Asia and Africa. How Pope Francis spreads the Gospel to a population that now has as its spiritual leader a man who understands South America and the challenges of the impoverished and the need for economic justice is t he great promise of his papacy. He rides the bus,visits the poor,lives in a simple apartment and cooks his own meals. To many in Buenos Aires,he is known simply as Father Jorge,according to the Catholic News Service. For those looking for major doctrinal change,there is little in the new popes background to suggest that his views will be different from that of his predecessor,Pope Benedict XVI. Pope Francis has been called a remarkable theologian/scholar who has firmly upheld the Churchs teachings against abortion and same-sex marriages. But his personal history is so unlike that of any other pope,there is great excitement and anticipation of what that might mean for one of the worlds great religions.

H is choice of Francis,a first for the Roman Catholic Church, was seen as a sign of how his pontificate might shape up. According to Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi,a Jesuit like the new pope,the n ame Francis expresses simplici ty and evangelical testimony. His demeanorand first words as pontiff,uttered from the central balcony of St. Peters Basilica,certainly suggested a humble and relaxed personality. Popes usually choose to name themselves after a favorite predecessor or saint. Saint Francis of Assisi is known throughout the world as the 13th century friar who renounced his merchant familys w ealth to live in poverty. He is also known for his love for animals and,in 1979,the late popeJ ohn Paul II declared him the patron saint of the environment. The choice therefore suggests that the new pope will want to b reak from the Churchs image as a wealthy institution. It could a lso signal that he intends to consider the status of the Vatican bank,the Institute for Religious Works,which has in the past been associated with money laundering and was the subject of heated debate during the days leading to the conclave. In the past 120 years,there have been only seven papal names used:Pius,Leo,Gregory, Benedict,John,Paul and John Paul. Bergoglios choice is a d eparture from tradition,but not the first in papal name-taking. J ohn Paul I was the first to adopt a double name,in 1978. His choice was seen as an attempt to honor the two men who preceded him,John XXIII and Paul VI. Historians date the beginning of the tradition of changing ones name to 996,when Bruno von Karnten of Germany adopted the name Gregory V. For some pontiffs,the name change itself is a blessing. The bishop of Albano,who became Sergius IV in 1009,had previously been known as Pietro Bucca Porci (Peter Pigs Snout). Nick Rigillo,dpa LIVING B14 SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, March 17, 2013T he choice of Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio as the new Poper epresents the first time a pontiff comes from the Jesuit order. Spaniard Ignatius von Loyola founded the Societa Jesu in 1534, a group dedicated to the renewal of the Catholic Church and its saints. That is often accomplished by spiritual exercises,30-day retreats of silence for contemplating the mysteries of the faith. Unlike other orders,Jesuits do not have special robes. Nor do they retreat to cloisters,but live m ore publicly,teaching in schools, for example. Jesuits often are con-s idered at the intellectual forefront of the church and are known for their sophisticated sermons. Education,missionary work, s pirituality and care for the poor are among the duties of order m embers. Each Jesuit is expected to complete a degree in theology and philosophy. Jesuits played a key role during the European counter-Reformation, butwere outlawed in many areas by rulers who feared they had become too powerful. The order also has been seen as slightly out of favor within the Church because of its politically aggressive campaign against poverty.
