Supervisors were presented a resol ution from General Manager Michael Wright that basically would ask the Highlands County Board of County Commissioners to expand West Sebring Volunteer Fire Departmenti nto the Sun N Lake district. Currently,the nine firefighters with SNL arep art-time,working eight-hour s hifts each day. The fire station isn ot manned after normal business hours. Most of the firefighters are full-timee mployees with other entities, which means their first duty is with their full-t ime department. Wright made the argument that the current fire department is inadequate and that the proposed idea would be of the most benefit to the residents of the community. SNL firefighters do not respond to many fire calls,going on mostly medical runs,he said,and do not have adequate equipment to take on a large fire if one should occur in the community. or 40 percent of the after-hours calls in the community,we haveto Future of SNL fire station unclear Supervisors discuss options, decide to wait For 40 percent of the afterhours calls in the community, we have to rely on mutual aid.MICHAEL WRIGHT Sun N Lake g eneral manager See FIRE,A3 B y SCOTT DRESSEL firstname.lastname@example.orgSEBRING Its an old wedding tradition to have the bride uses omething borrowed.

The Florida Department of Children and Families identified $22.3 million in Medicaid overpayments between 2007 and 2010 and the federal share is about $12 million. The feds initially said the state should return all $12 million,but amended their recommendation after state officials said they had only collected $4 million of those funds and should not be expected to repay funds they have not yet recouped,according to a report by the Department of Health and Human Services inspector general.
C M Y K By SETH BORENSTEIN AP Science WriterWASHINGTON A top senator says President Barack Obama and NASA are planning for a robotic spaceship to lasso a small asteroid and park it near the moon. Then astronauts would explore it in 2021. Sen. Bill Nelson of Florida said the plan would speed up by four years the existing mission to land astronauts on an asteroid by bringing the space rock closer to Earth. Nelson,who is chairman of the Senate Science and Space Subcommittee,said Friday that Obama is putting $100 million for the accelerated asteroid mission in the 2014 budget that comes out next week. The money w ould be used to find the right small asteroid. Nelson said this would help NASA develop the capab ility to nudge away a dangerous asteroid heading to Earth in the future. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, April 7, 2013Page A3 MARTIAL ARTS (pp r hr top of stack; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 8 8 8 8 1 1 9 9 CITY OF SEBRING; 5.542"; 5"; Black; annexation; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 0 0 4 4 1 1 Courtesy photo John McGehee, an Okeechobee County freshman, works at the fingerprint station set up b y Crime Scene Investigator and Fingerprint Master Jeff Fennell.

Continued from A1 month these students,identified by their respective school districts as gifted ort alented in Science, Technology,Engineering a nd Mathematics (STEM curriculum) receive handson applications and exercis-e s in some area of science or technology. In this case the s tudents travelled to HillGustat Middle School in Sebring where members oft he HCSO Crime Scene Unit set up five stations for study and experience. H CSO Crime Scene Technician Kathy Perez w alked students through a staged crime scene complete with (dummy blood splatter. Students learned the importance ofm ath skills to calculate angles from blood spatter and project elements of the crime from this data. Brittany Milrot,a sophomore at Okeechobee County High School,liked spraying stuff to show bold even if they cover it u p. Crime Scene Investigator Stacy Andrews demonstrated how to make biofoam molds of tire tracks andf ootprints found at crime scenes. Brandon Beatty,a junior in the program,said, Biofoam was the most fun because we made something w e could keep. Crime Scene Investigator Jon Wilkinson demonstrated the tools of the trade that are transported in the crimes cene vehicle. Students were allowed to try out the metal d etectors and discover objects hidden in the grass on the site as well as get anu nderstanding of the dedication it takes to work crime s cenes from start to finish. The fingerprint station was set up by Crime SceneI nvestigator and Fingerprint Master Jeff Fennell. Fennell explained the science of fing erprints,then demonstrated several ways to get prints to b e visible and identified. Computer expert Jason Dionne spoke to the assembly of students about computer and cell phone tech-n ology and how this is used to make connections between criminals and prove cases in court. He also demonstrated how pictures and posts allegedly deleted from cell phones and com-p uters are actually saved and can be restored. J ohn Varady,program coordinator for the Heartland Educational Consortium,said,The FloridaLearns STEMS cholars Program is a great way to expose some of our most gifted and talented students to careers and postsecondary offerings in the f ields of science,technology,engineering and mathematics. These are opportunities that many of our students in small and rurals chool districts cant access as readily as can students f rom larger districts. Sheriff Susan Benton was excited to see these studentsp articipating in the STEM program. These students are our future members and community leaders. Its wonder-f ul to be able to tap into our Crime Scene Investigators to give hands on experie nces for them.

West Sebring covers roughly 40 percent of the county. They responded to 110 calls last month alone,Wright said. The option to expand the fire department in SNL to employ full-time firefighters with adequate facilities would cost more than $1 million,according to Wright. A facility has been proposed on Sun N Lake Boulevard that would house firefighters and serve as an EMS station. The building would be owned by the county,a fact that some board members were not thrilled about. The ... EMS station on Sun N Lake Boulevard can be used by West Sebring if they are brought in,said Wright. The building would serve as a station for the proposed part-time first responders who would work 12-hour days. SNL would pay a third of the cost of the building construction under this proposal,which would have to go before the county commission. If approved,the project would have to begin before the June 30 deadline to make it into the years fiscal budget deadline of Oct. 1. I like the idea of expanding on our first responders. I think its high priority,said board member Curt McCullough. I think the time has come,its been on the books since last June. I think itd be a great benefit to the residents of this community to have a fire department and EMS. Im in favor of bringing West Sebring in here and having the security and Id be willing to partner on any improvements,board member Gene Gangemi said. I dont like the idea of a footprint in here. The countys footprint would be in this district,said board member Richard Holbert. After several more minutes of discussion and input from firefighters,the meeting took a different tone when residents voiced their concerns. Tom Costy,resident and secretary for the Manor Hill Owners Association,had plenty to say regarding the topic of a new facility. e certainly have taken care of our recreation services but havent given adequate efforts to other services,Costy said. I dont see why we would invest money into someone elses property when we are sitting on thousands of acres of land in our own district. Wright reminded meeting attendees that the cost of building a facility separate from the county that would house employees for 24hour shifts would cost upwards of $1 million. ell,we didnt have a problem building a $3 million clubhouse,board president Dave Helbig said. This is a tough one. I wast looking forward to this meeting and now Im looking less forward to it and to whats coming. I think we should look at keeping our own fire department but I dont want to do away with this building concept. I know weve beat it up and beat it up,but I think we need to give it more thought. Wright interjected. I dont feel like you would get any better service,Wright said. So do we transfer our fire department to West Sebring or do we maintain it? That is the big fundamental question here,Helbig said. The item was unanimously approved to be tabled until the next meeting. Wright was given instruction to come back to the meeting with more numbers that would show the cost of employing part-time firefighters on a 24-hour schedule with two firefighters on duty each day,as well as options on the cost of going with the current proposal to construct a facility with the help of the county and the cost of retrofitting a building on Sun N Lake property without county ownership.

It was a terrible time,when civilians misdirected their anger over an unpopular war to the young men who wered rafted to fight it; when the very president and legislators who ordered soldiers into harms way turned their backs on returningv eterans in need of healing and support. For 40 years it was as if the country wanted to forget the Vietnam War ever happened. Its veterans continued to be ignored. When the war was discussed,itw asnt about the countless sacrifices and displays of bravery under fire discussions over Vietnam tended to be about the disintegration of troop discipline and a perceived lack of will. F ortunately,the nation has come to understand what a wrong was perpetrated; how much damage and pain were caused. We are beginning to make amends. President Barack Obamas proclamation n aming March 29 national Vietnam Veterans day is an overdue recognition. Proclamations and official ceremonies,h owever while exciting,rewarding and deserved dont get to the heart of the matter. Only a community can truly make its heroes feel back home. L inda Casali,a member of AmVets Post 21 auxiliary,provided a voice for us all here in Highlands County when she addressed 200 Vietnam veterans during Post 21s celebration and potluck supper int heir honor March 30. Casali said:ou stepped up at a time in our countrys history when many others did not. Today we are here to honor that spirit and show you all the respect youd eserve. Your service to this country will never go unrecognized again. Im here to say,job well done. No one can ever taket hat away from you. Be proud. Walk tall. You are honorable and deserving people. To which we say,Amen. Very late, but from the heart One of the mysteries that l ife has to offer is how airlines come up with their prices for airfare. I have never dared to ask a fellow passenger howm uch they paid for their ticket,but Im fairly sure t hat if you took a poll of those on a plane,you would find all differentp rices for the same seat. The same small,cramped s eat,I should say. Granted,there are all kinds of websites to helpy ou get the bestprice for a ticket. All kinds of factors probably enter in to t he decision of what to charge,and I would not be s urprised if one of those factors involved a dart board. I mean,is it me or do prices seem random at times? B ut I found out today that there is one airline where you can know the exact parameters for setting their prices. You can figure out why youre paying what youre paying. T hat airline is Samoa Air. Their criteria? How m uch you and your luggage weigh. I am not kidding. According to an article found on edition.cnn.com,t o buy a ticket online from this particular carrier,you must give your approximate weight and that of your luggage. Your fare isc alculated at a flat rate per kilo (thats 2.2 pounds) and you prepay that amount. When you get to the airport,you and your baggage are weighed. While there is a 2 percent fudge factor allowed,if youve grossly underestimated your poundage be prepared to fork over extra cash. However,Samoa Air chief executive Chris Langton warns passengers not to expect a refund if they come in underweight. Langton defends the policy as the fairest way to determine price. He figures those who pay more will get more comfortable seats for the price,and everyone will be happy. Samoa Air currently has three aircraft with a total seating capacity of 24. They are planning to purchase a bigger plane and expand their service to nearby countries. This idea of charging passengers by weight has been batted around before, b ut Samoa Air is the first airline to actually go ahead a nd do it. Could it happen here? Will we see our domestica irlines demanding to know how much we weigh a nd charging us accordingly? I admit this worries me a little. I fly a few times a year. This is not because I find flying an enjoyable experie nce,but due to the fact that driving to the west c oast (where I go two or three times a year) isnt practical. So I am well aware of how cramped those seats have gotten. I am short,true,but I am also overweight. Right now the only being to know what I currently weigh is God,because Ive been afraid to step on a scale. I figure my weight is theb usiness of God,my doctor,and me,but thats a bout it. OK,Don can know too. But do I want to stand on a scale at an airport ticket counter where any-o ne can see what those dreaded numbers are? Speaking for myself,the answer is Nope! Can you see the hubbub i f someone tried it here? True,people like my son, John,whos a beanpole, would get bargain prices. But lets face it,a lot of Americans arent slender, and they would be very loud when it came to denouncing this policy. Given our desire to be sensitivto almost everyone in the country,I cant see this coming to pass here. Samoa Air can do what it wants,but I think our American airlines are going to stick to their dart boards. Which means people like me can breathe huge sighs of relief while we think of yet another reason to stay off the scale. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Millions against illegal immigrationEditor: In an article in another publication on immigration it pointed out a few people(Tea Party members) were against immigration reform. It is interesting that the Tea Party members (because they speak up) were singled out. Millions of Americans are against illegal immigration because it is people who have broken the law. In the same article it mentioned that most Americans will not do the work. A large part of the reason is the elimination of the need to look for and do work instead of collecting an unemployment check. Most people will support a guest worker program,provided those workers return to their native country when the work is done,not live permanently in the United States and collect fulltime benefits. For decades we had an immigration program that worked through locations like Ellis Island,not stream across an open border that has not been protected. This country is being crushed financially,supporting millions that take more from the system than they put in. John Larsen SebringDisappointed in Swamp Hammock outcomeEditor: I went to the Highlands County board of commissioners meeting with high hopes and confidence for an acceptable Swamp Hammock solution. I was disappointed. In previous sessions,I was assured the comprehensive ordinance/resolution prepared contained the necessary elements to insure compliance/enforcement of them by all parties involved with managing it. As the meeting passed the four-hour mark,it became clear to me that compliance/enforcement were promised, but not guaranteed. The insurance issue was murky,as was the indemnity promised the surrounding residents in thea greement. The BARA Swamp Hammock organization is bankrupt. Its had three-four failed ventures,a mounting debt and questionable required insurance when I left. I fear not only for those in south Highlands County; I fear for all taxpayers here. The eventual cost will fall on us all. Gabriel Read Avon ParkCommissioners are supposed to look out for usEditor: We received a huge disappointment last night when those particular commissioners chose to vote for the establishment of the Swamp Hammock project. They chose not to protect those old-time generations of Sebring families,but voted in favor of a gentleman from out of our country seeking to bring into the quiet of Sebring on west, which will undoubtedly be a party timeentertainment. Their laughter said no alcohol will be served,yet she failed to say they would not allow alcohol to be brought in with the 1,000 or more coolers. We know personally the dangers alcohol can bring,having one child out of eight become addicted. Thank God, he caused no problems to anyone but himself. It destroyed an extremely talented,smart gifted boy and took him away from us at the age of 47. We will always miss him. Is it clear to see why we object personally to such an activity coming to our town? Those Christian folks who think that this will be good for our children are you right out of your minds? The problems encountered at Race Week here is an example of what we will have continually all year,every year. Do you want your children exposed to a good many drunks,improper behavior and the likes? The narrower roads with no should ers should be enough to scare you to death in case of an accident or illness. Oh,but new roads,funded by the taxpayers,will remedy that no one mentioned that possibility. Another long-time citizen reminded the commissioners that we support Sebring and have all of our lives by buying our groceries,gas,dry goods and on and on. These Swamp Hammockattendees will do little of that in comparison. Five hours of listening to the pros and cons last night convinced us even for that what problems will be brought on to us,by a stranger coming to town for his financial benefits,only to damage our way of life. We need to pray long and hard that our commissioners will look out for us,isnt that what we expected when we voted them into office? Sally Noel Sebring BouquetCorn Hole tournaments help Boys and Girls ClubEditor: The Boys and Girls Club of Highlands County would like to take this opportunity to thank the Blue Lagoon Saloon,Savilles Mugs on 27 and Rent King for sponsoring Corn Hole tournaments for us over the past two months.

The video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch ?v=QE6bsjm-syI ),set to the classic song My Girl,took a couple of takes to get right.D ennis was tired,Brenda recalled. He was very weak. He had to sit down a lot while we were in there. We had to do it then,or we wouldnt have gotten it done, she said. It was fun. There was a lot ofl aughing and a lot of crying at the same time on that day. Alaina recalls that her dad didnt let his condition get in the way of enjoying the day. Even though he was real tired and weak, h e still maintained his personality. He was still very much himself. The video begins with Dennis dancing a long to the music,shortly joined by Alaina. It ends with Alaina and Jeremiah dancing together,while Dennis and Brenda dance af ew feet away. That was totally impromptu,Brenda s aid. He had to sit down while Alaina and J.J. were dancing and I went over there and got him to dance with me. A s the song fades out,the focus is on Dennis and Brenda in a tender embrace, s lowly dancing together as Dennis rubs her back. It was their last dance. There are different parts of the story that everybody was responding to,Maxcy said. Obviously,that it was a daddy-daughter dance for a wedding,but also the last dance f or my Uncle Dennis and Aunt Brenda. I think that was something that really resonated with people. I t was Maxcs first real crack at making a video,she said,and shes shocked at the way i t has circled the globe. One of her first calls about it was from a journalist in Australia. I knew it was going to be a gift for the f amily to cherish and as an artist,thats how I went into it; wanting it to be something beautiful for them that they would have for the rest of their life,she said. The video was originally posted as private, w hich meant only the family could see it before the wedding. It was shown at the reception on March 30,and,at Brendas request,Maxcy changed it to public sometime around 9 p.m. on Easter Sunday,thenw alked away from her computer. By the time she checked back on Monday a fter getting several emails and calls about it from all over,it was at 15,000 views. s overwhelming that its Gods hand t hats in it,Maxcy said. Videos not even my specialty. Honestly,this is me trying it o ut. I wasnt striving for it to be anything special for anybody except for the family. So the fact that its done this is overwhelming. Somebody had commented that (Dennis always wanted to have a video go viral. Itsa lmost like he has a part in this and hes probably cracking up. A fter the dance is over,the video feed returns for a few seconds of Dennis sitting in a chair,showing his true personality. My dad and his best friend always wanted to film their goofy antics and put it on Y ouTube or Facebook. The part at the end, where hes making funny faces; he always wanted to do that and put it on the Internet a nd he got that,Alaina said. God is using my dad even still,and hes not even with us anymore. Hes just not done with my dad. Its humbling. Brenda agreed that the videos stunning p opularity has some heavenly help. e just feel like Gods not done using this story to bring people to himself,Brenda said.

C M Y K B y MICHAEL VIRTANEN Associated PressALBANY,N.Y. Gun e nthusiasts fearful of new weapon controls and alarmed b y rumors of government hoarding are buying bullets practically by the bushel, m aking it hard for stores nationwide to keep shelves stocked and even putting a pinch on some local law enforcement departments. A t a 24-hour Walmart in suburban Albany,the ammunition cabinet was threefourths empty this week; sales clerks said customersm ust arrive before 9 the morning after a delivery to g et what they want. A few miles away,Dicks S porting Goods puts up a red rope after ammunition deliveries so buyers can line up early to get a number,averting races up the escalator tot he gun counter. Both stores are limiting ammunition purchases to three boxes a day. In mid-January,two days a fter New York became the first state to toughen laws post-Newtown,hunter and target shooter Mark Smith spent $250 to stockpile ammunition,including $43 for a brick of 500 .22-caliber bullets,commonly used for target shooting and hunting small game. I had a feeling there was going to be a huge ammunition shortage,said Smith, browsing shotgun shells this week at Dicks. Especially .22s. Its probably the most popular round out there. Likewise,the .223 ammunition used in popular semiautomatic rifles is hard to find. At Hunters Haven,a strip-mall gun shop in the farming community of Rolesville,N.C.,north of Raleigh,clerk Dean Turnage said ammunition is going out as fast as we can get it in, even though new gun controls are not on the states agenda. The run started in November with President Barack Obamas re-election, f ollowed by the mass shooting in December of children in Newtown,Conn.,whichl ed the president to launch an effort to strengthen federa l gun controls and several states to tighten their laws. Connecticut on Thursday b ecame the latest to crack down as the governor signed a measure effective immediately that adds more than 100 firearms tot he states assault weapons ban,creates a dangerous weapon offender registry and institutes eligibility rules for ammunition purchases. H ours before the law took effect,hundreds of cust omers streamed out of Hoffmans Gun Center inN ewington with guns and boxes of ammunition. The bad guys are going to get guns,said John Power,56,of Bristol,a rguing the new law would not stop a troubled gunman. The nations 1 00 million firearms owners are driving the market for some 10 billion rounds annually,with demand and gun purchases both increasing the past several months, driven partly by fear that tougher laws will restrict the ability to buy firearms,said Lawrence Keane,whose National Shooting Sports Foundation is based in Newtown. Theres a concern by firearms owners that this administration will pursue bans on products,bans on ammunition. ... Its not limited geographically to New York or anywhere else. It is nationwide,he said. Some government critics attributed shortages to federal purchases of bullets, accusing officials of trying to hoard a billion rounds and disarm the populace. Department of Homeland Security and the federal government itself is buying up ammunition and components at such a rate,its causing a rtificial shortage of supplies for the regular consumer,said Jesse Alday,as tate corrections officer who was buying a couple of b oxes of primers at Hunters Haven. There buying it up as f ast as they can,for reasons there not officially willing to admit or go into. ... There not willing to come up with any answers as tot he reasons behind why they have enough ammunition on the U.S.,on our own home soil,to wage a 25-year war, he said. Thats kind ofs trange. Keane, w hose group includes manufacturers,said the reports of massive federal purchases were not true. The government routinely buys products in bulk to reduce costs,and Homeland Security has said the latest purchases are no different. Last year,the department put out bids for a total of about 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the next five years. The rounds are to be used for training,routine weapons qualification exercises and normal duty by various department agencies. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, April 7, 2013Page A9 DR.

KOCH CONSTRUCTION CO.; 5.542"; 4"; Black; seam p/u; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 8 8 9 9 5 5 8 8 Most people w ho grew up during the Great Depression and World War II learned to scrimpa nd save as a matter of necessity. Many also gained financial security during subsequent decades whenp ension plans were more comm on,homeownership became the norm and government programs likeS ocial Security and Medicare expanded. F or a time,it seemed their Baby Boomer children stood to inherit amounts unheard of for previous generations. H owever,many economic factors have taken their t oll on seniorsnest eggs in recent years. Thus,if you were counti ng on a sizeable inheritance to help finance your o wn retirement,you may want to rethink that strategy. H ere are several reasons why many seniors are revising their estate distrib ution plans: Most people who investe d heavily in the stock market during the Great Recession watched helplessly as their accounts lost significant value. Althought he market has mostly recovered,many people especially those in or approaching retirement stashed their remaining balances in safer investments earning very lowi nterest,worried the market might plunge further. Many l ikely will have to draw on their account principal to make ends meet,thereby depleting their savings (and estates) much more rapidlyt han planned. Many seniors expected their homes equity would help fund retirement. But after the housing marketc rashed,they instead found its value drastically reduced. Fortunately,the housing market has begun to recover. But many tapped-out seniors have turned to reverse mortgages and home equity loans to draw on their homes equity to cover living expenses, thereby lessening their estates future value. As average life spans increase,so does the period well need to survive on our retirement savings. A 65-year-old man today will live until 83 on average; for women it jumps to 85. Many people never imagined their savings would have to last that long and didnt plan accordingly. Even if they buy Medicare prescription drug and Medigap cove rage,seniors,like everyone else, spend an everincreasing percentage of theiri ncome on medical care. Such costs usually far outpace benefit cost-of-living increases andi nterest earned on investments. B aby Boomers have begun tapping Social Security and Medicare bene fits; and far fewer younger workers now fund those p rograms,so its possible that benefits will decrease, premiums will rise or taxes will increase or a combination of all three; allo ptions would strain fixed incomes. W hen the market was booming,many people retired early,assuming theyc ould afford to bridge the gap before receiving Social S ecurity and Medicare. But plummeting home equity and reduced 401(kb alances have forced many retirees to aggressively withdraw from savings, t rim expenses or even return to work. M any seniors help their children and grandchildren pay for high-ticket expenses like home down payments and college.A lthough such gifts reduce the eventual value of their estate,there are certain tax advantages (lower estate taxes,state tax deductions for 529 Plan contributions, etc.). If youre the recipi-e nt,dont take such assistance as license to take on a dditional debt. Unless theve purchased comprehensive long-term care insurance,your parents will likely burnt hrough most of their savings should they ever require assisted living. And keep in mind that Medicaid will only pay for a nursingh ome once theve exhausted most of their assets. Bottom line:With seniors facing increasing financial challenges,dont depend on an inheritance to provide your financial security. Jason Alderman directs Visa's financial education programs.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgS EBRING The Lake Gibson Braves came to town Friday night in a key District 9-6Amatchup and were f orced to endure an extended visit in Sebrings 6-5, 10i nning marathon win at F iremens Field. Those are always fun games when you go extra innings, head coach Buck Rapp said. But the pressure builds with each inning and defense is key. Usually the team that loses is the one that makes that defensive mistake and our guys really got it done on defense in those extra innings. Also key for the Streaks was the extended relief work of C.J. Payne and Garrett DeRoss, who combined for six innings of shutout ball. e almost pitched a complete game in relief, Rapp said. The Braves got the early lead with two in the second off starter Jordan Baker who only allowed two hits in his four innings of work, but had some control issues in walking seven. Sebring tied it in the bottom of the second with Wyatt Johnson and Cullen Lovett crossing the plate. The Streaks then edged into the lead when DeRoss drove Johnson home in the bottom of the third, but Lake Gibson answered back in the top of the fourth with three runs. Some shaky defense contributed to it, and of the five runs now on the board for the Braves with their 5-3 lead, just three had been earned. But that lead was shortlived as Jared Lang laced a double down the third-base line and Jordan Austin dropped down a beautiful sacrifice bunt. Slightly elevated for a moment, the ball was loaded with backspin and came to a complete stop once it hit the sod, allowing Lang to move to third and the speedy Austin to beat it out for a hit. Both runners wound up coming around to tie it up at 5-5 after four. And thats where it would stay through the fifth, sixth and seventh to move it into extras.

Blue Streaks outlast Braves See STREAKS, Page B4 By ALEX COYNE News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK As the softball season is starting to wind down and move toward the district tourna-m ent, Lake Placid t ravelled to Avon Park Friday afternoon for another Red DevilGree Dragon matchup. Lake Placid ran away with a win after five innings of play, 21-4. T he Dragons were racking up numbers early with seven runs to open the game. Holly Krett kept Avon Park off the board in the bottom of the frame and the lead held at 7-0, entering the top of the second inning. Astand-up triple by Courtney Delaney soon built momentum for theD ragons. T wo more came in, though the Devils got on the board themselves to make it a 9-1 game after two. Both Lake Placid and Avon Park would go on small runs in the third i nning. The Dragons managed to add six runs to their score, Lady Dragons light it up See LP, Page B3 Lake Placid21Avon Park4 Sebring6Lake Gibson5 By DAN HOEHNE d email@example.comAVON PARK It seemed the Red Devilsh ad righted the ship, gotten their swag back. After the offense had gone cold over a fourg ame losing streak, the bats had heated up in two b ig wins. B ut things went cold again Friday in a 7-2 loss to visiting DeSoto. After Thurdays scheduled contest against Sebring was washed away by the rains, Avon Park seemed eager to atone for an earlier loss to the Bulldogs in Fridays contest. Eager and on the attack they certainly were, with Alfred Brown ripping a lead-off double and Tyrone Perry promptly singling him home for a 10 lead right off the bat. The second inning went quietly before DeSoto got on the board with a run in the third. Avon Park re-took the lead with a run in the bottom of the inning, but from there, Bulldog starter Garrett Anderson locked in and held the Devils atb ay the rest of the way. The senior right hander surrendered just four hits in his complete-game e ffort, striking out eight and walking just two t hough he did plunk three b atters. DeSoto got the lead with two in the fourth, added to it with a run in the fifth and put it away with three more in the seventh to provide for the final margin. The outcome moves the Bulldogs to 6-1 and atop the standings in District 10-4Aplay and drops the Devils to 2-4 and behind Lake Placid (4-24-3 in fourth place. But they should find some good medicine Tuesday when they travel to Mulberry, winless in district play and giving up an average of more than nine runs per game.

By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgAs with their girls basketball team this past winter, the Lady Dragons of the tennis courts reached heights this spring that the school hadnt seen in quite a number of years a district championship. With a core group of returning starters, improvement this season was expected, and along with that improvement, their confidence grew. e came to the Districts in Auburndale with very high expectations, head coach Jennifer Giguere said. eve been doing a lot of extra training at the Country Club of Sebring, for which the girls are all very thankful. And contrary to Lake Placid returning their core, teams like Auburndale and Lake Wales had lost three to four seniors each, giving the Dragons a good feel for being able to match-up with them and have a shot at one of the top two spots. For practices, I made sure all of our girls could play through the hot sun and high temperatures that were expected on clay courts, Giguere said. Luckily, both days were reasonably comfortable. But it paid off too, because each of the girls matches lasted two hours or longer That included the marathon finale in No. 2 Singles, where Stephanie Rodriguez and Hardees Susana Oceguera battled for three and-a-half hours. Both girls showed such great consistency, Guigere said. I counted at least 15 ball-play rallies between them. (Oceguera lobs to Stephanie, but she gave it right back and then finished her off with crosscourt winners.

Sebrings offense was clicking in the opener, piling up the runs in a 12-3 win. But maybe they could have saved a few of those for the second game, when the Lady Braves eked out a 4-3 win to earn the split. With the district schedule complete, the Streaks finish the regular season this week with a game Tuesday at Lake Placid and Thursday and Friday at home against Frostproof and Okeechobee, respectively.

C M Y K and Avon Park added three, making it a 15-4 game going into the fourth inning. Laine Weber-Callahan, Annie Weber-Callahan and Delaney scored for the Lady Dragons in the top of the fourth inning. With the bases loaded, the Lady Devil defense allowed no more runs to score on a caught pop fly at shortstop. Krett was responsible for the first two outs with a strikeout and a grounded balla t the pitchers mound. A von Parks Johntavia Perry had fly ball drop behind second base for a single. But she was soon caught stealing second base, and the fourth inning closed with Lake Placid up 18-4. L ake Placid went on yet another small run in the top of the fifth. Taylor Test earned herself a triple before Annie Callahan hit one to the center-field fence and made her way all the way around the bases for an inside-the-park home run. Delaney was then walked and Tamija Douglas beat outa throw to first base on a g rounder before Krett earned a single. Three total runs were scored, but the small streakw as ended when Perry threw two strikeouts. D own 21-4, Avon Park had to make something happen in t he bottom of the fifth inning to avoid the early, mercy-rule e nding, but they fell short with three quick outs. It was a game of execution. My girls hit well today head coach Alicia Cheshire stated after the game. Im very proud of them. The district schedule completed, with seeding still to be determined, the Dragons finish out the regular season this week. Monday they travel to All Saints, host Sebring Tuesday and are at Moore Haven Thursday before getting set to head to the District 10-4A Tournament in Mulberry next week. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, April 7, 2013Page B3 A MERICAN GOLF CARTS; 5.542"; 5"; Black; april ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 8 8 9 9 2 2 2 2 D R.

FTA Heartland Chapter April Activities Lake Gibson did threaten in the seventh when, with t wo out, a hit batter and single up the middle put two on. But a short-hopped throw a cross on a grounder to third baseman Ty Little was scooped nicely at first by Payne to thwart any further rally. Little made a surer throw, after a fine, sliding stop at third for the first out in the eighth, but that would be followed by a walk, hit batter and single to left to load the bases. Bringing the infield in panned out as a sharp g rounder toward first was snared by Payne and fired h ome for the force and the ensuing grounder to Dane M addox at second got the Streaks out of it again. Little almost provided some offensive heroics in the bottom of the eighth when he lead off by powering one to deep left. B ut the Brave left fielder, on a full sprint back, made a leaping catch for the out. The next two Sebring batters went down on strikes and it was on to the ninth. Both teams were held off the board again, and DeRoss g ot through the top of the 1 0th without a score before two Blue Streak freshmen came through to end it in the bottom of the frame. J immy Peck went hitless on the night, but came through by drawing a leadoff walk. He was pinch-run for by G arrett Martinez, who moved to second on a single by Little. One out later, Austin came up, but fell behind in the count 1-2. He really battled back and worked the count, Rapp said. Battled back and came t hrough with a walk-off double, scoring Martinez to give Sebring the win. e called them rookies earlier in the season, but they h ave enough game experience now that theyre not playing like it, Rapp said of P eck and Austin. It was just a real good game with a lot of g uys contributing. The win, and how they got i t, also served to hamper Lake Gibson in another way. They had a rain-out against Kathleen they had to make up Saturday morning, Rapp explained. So they had to play 10 innings, drive all the way home late, then get up and play again at 9a .m. And if Kathleen could beat them, then wed be guaranteed of no worse than the second seed. A t 3-1 in district play, Sebring does control its own destiny with two games left.

Streaks stymie Lake Gibson By STEVE REED A ssociated PressCHARLOTTE, N.C. The Miami Heat were without LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Ray Allen on Friday night. That didnt matter against the NBA-worst Charlotte Bobcats. With a threesome averaging a combined 59 points per game sitting on the bench due to injuries, the Heat showed they can still win in a variety of ways which on this night meant perimeter shooting and stingy defense. Mike Miller, who had played only sparingly up until two weeks ago, scored a season-high 26 points on seven 3-pointers as the injurydepleted Heat beat the Bobcats 89-79. The 33-year-old Miller was 7 of 11 from beyond the 3point arc, not bad for a guy who only scored a combined 41 points during January and February. Chris Bosh chipped in with 18 points and eight rebounds, and Rashard Lewis added 14 points for Miami, which improved to 3-2 since Chicago snapped its 27-game winning streak. Right now its time for the guys who havent been getting a lot of playing time to get a rhythm in case they need us in the playoffs, Miller said. Heat coach Erik Spoelstra expects at some point the Heat will need Miller to make another run at an NBAtitle. He is a big-time weapon that we have, Spoelstra said. He has absolutely bought into the sacrifice. You know the long season of an 82-game season, this is probably the healthiest he has ever been at this time of year and you see his value. He can strike it hot at any moment and go on a string of four, five, or six in a row The Heat held the Bobcats to 31.8 percent shooting from the field, their best defensive performance of the season. The Bobcats scored just eight points in the third quarter on 3 of 18 shooting and the Heat opened a 13-point lead. They never trailed again. The Heat held Gerald Henderson and Kemba Walker, Charlottes two hottest players, to a combined 5 of 31 shooting from the floor. If you dont defend, you dont play on this team, said Miamis Shane Battier. We know what butters our bread. If you play hard on the defensive end, you get a three. With the Heat having secured the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, Spoelstra took no chances and rested James and Wade for a third straight game, as well as Allen, who tweaked his ankle earlier this week after tripping over a cameraman. The Heat decided to win or lose with the 3-pointer, which played right into Millers hands. Although he looked at times like his legs were creaky and tired, Millers shot remained as smooth as ever. Mike can really stretch the floor, Bosh said. Hes an underrated playmaker. He can hit guys and put them in scoring positions. He just knows how to play basketball. Alot of people forget sometimes because he is on a team that is very, very deep but when his number is called he is always ready. Miami (59-16 three victories of setting a new franchise record for wins in a regular season. Rookie Michael KiddGilchrist had 18 points and 14 rebounds for the Bobcats, who lost for only the second time in their last seven home games. Henderson has been a catalyst for the Bobcats in recent weeks, averaging 22.9 points on 51 percent shooting over the past 14 games. He started out strong with eight points in the first quarter but quickly went cold and failed to score in the second and third quarters. He got frustrated with the officiating, even drawing a technical foul in the second half. Henderson finished with 11 points on 2-of-16 shooting. Walker had 12 points and shot 3 of 15. They made me give the ball up, Walker said. I tried coming off ball screens but they were just always in the right spots. They collapsed on me. When I did get some shot opportunities I didnt get them to fall. That was by design. The first thing we always talk about every day and when we come into training camp is our defense, Bosh said. Especially with this group we have to play good defense to give ourselves a chance to win. I think we gave a good effort tonight and pretty much every night for that effort. We have locked up pretty well. NOTES Mario Chalmers returned for the Heat after missing the last three games with a sprained ankle and finished with six points and seven assists. This is the first time James has missed three consecutive games since signing with the Heat. Mike Hatchett Jr., a Bobcats fan from Columbia, S.C., won $7,777 when he swished a shot from halfcourt during a casino-sponsored promotion in the fourth quarter.

C M Y K By LEE REICH Associated PressF or a time many years back,I would become nervous every time I went out to my garden to weed. The weeds were so few that If eared something was wrong with the soil. True,I had taken deliberate steps to create this condition, but initially it was hard to believe that results could sow ell bear out theory. The first step in creating t his weedlesscondition was to stop turning over or tilling the ground. B uried in every soil are countless dormant weed s eeds just waiting to be awakened by exposure to light and/or air. Not tilling whether with a shovel,garden fork or rototiller k eeps those seeds buried and dormant. A dded bonuses to the notill approach are preservation of valuable soil humus( organic matter),earlier planting in spring,more effic ient water use and,of course,not having to go through the trouble of tilling.Keep the soil intact and coveredI now take great pains to a void disturbing the layering that naturally develops over time in any soil. I clean up old marigold plants,tomato vines ando ther spent plants during and at the end of the growing season by just jerking them out of the ground,coaxing out plants with large roots,such as corn,by first cutting around their main roots witha garden knife. I also enrich the soil from t he top down,spreading fertilizers and compost or other organic materials right on the surface. Most of a plants feeder roots the roots thatb enefit most from organic materials and fertilizers grow near the surface anyway. And near or on the surface is where organic materi-a ls can also do the most good offering protection from the pounding of raindrops and the summer sun. Still,there are always those weeds that arrive in the garden as seeds hitchhiking in with the wind or dropped by birds. Each year,I smother them by spreading a thin, weed-free mulch over the soil. The mulch of choice depends on the look I want, the plants and the soil. Buckwheat hulls,straw or wood chips are adequate and attractive for most flowers.Dont walk on my bed!Of course,you cant just stop tilling,throw mulch on the ground and garden as usual. Walking on the soil and rolling a wheelbarrow, garden cart or tractor over itc ompacts the soil; tillage is then needed to aerate it. T he way to avoid compaction in the first place is to lay out the garden with per-m anent areas for plants and for traffic. Trafficked areas also need to be mulched,in t his case with some lean, weed-free material such as w ood chips,gravel or straw. Planted areas in my vegetable garden consist of rectangular beds 3 feet wide surrounded by 18-inch-widep aths. Beds in my flower garden are more free-form or have stepping stones. Planted areas in a vegetable garden dont need to be raised beds,however; they can be laid out flat. A big advantage of bed planting is that you can pack m ore plants into less space. Instead of planting carrots with 18 inches between rows, four or five rows can be planted with only a few inch-e s between them. (That 18 inches is to let you walk between the rows for planting,weeding and harvesting. With a 3-foot-wide bed,youc an do all that from the paths.) Also,different vegetables, flowers,or vegetables and flowers can be grown together in beds.Drip that waterChanging watering technique was the final step onmy road to weedlessness. Not all plants need regular watering,but for those that do,drip irrigation is the way to go. Drip irrigation puts water near garden plants,so none is wasted or promoting weed growth in the areas between plants or in paths. This is not to say that with the above four steps drip irrigation,mulching,keeping traffic off planted areas,and not tilling weeds never appear. They do. But weed problems do not. W hat few large weeds do appear get yanked out of the s oil,roots and all,coaxed out,if necessary,with a garden knife or trowel. C olonies of small weeds are quickly done in with a winged weeder,colinear h oe or some other hoe with a sharp blade that can be slid a long parallel to and just a fraction of an inch below the soil surface. Also important in keeping a garden weed-free is to s earch regularly for them. With the above four steps, this activity is pared down to nothing more than a few pleasant minutes per week.

S he is working on a memoir and policy book about her years as secretary of state, Simon & Schuster told The Associated Press. The book has yet to be titled and is tentatively scheduled for June 2014.F inancial terms werent disclosed. Clinton reportedly received $8 million for the 2003 memoir,Living History,also published by Simon & Schuster. Hillary Clintons extraordinary public service has given her a unique perspectiveo n recent history and the challenges we face,Jonathan Karp,president and publ isher of the Simon & Schuster Publishing Group and the books editor,said in a statement Thursday. This will be the ultimateb ook for people who are interested in world affairs and Americas place in the world t oday. By launching her book tour in June 2014, Clinton will travel the country as Democrats work to recapture the House in the fall midterm elections. Her itinerary w ill be closely scrutinized for any signs she may run for president in 2016 any book tour events in early voting states like Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina would receive broad attention. A s with Living History,Clinton was represented by Washington attorney Robert Barnett,who has handled deals for President Barack Obama and Clintons husband,former President Bill Clinton. Karpp reviously served as editor for another Barnett client,Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, and his memoir True Compass. H illary Clinton,65,stepped down as secretary of state earlier this year after serving throughout Obamas first term. Polls indi-c ate she would be a leading contender for the 2016 Democratic presidential nominat ion,but she has yet to announce a decision about a bid. Clinton was defeated by Obama for the Democratic nomination in 2008. H er book will likely be anticipated on several levels as a possible signal of a p residential run; as the latest chronicle of one of the most eventful public lives o f the past quarter-century; as the continuation of a tradition of secretary of state memoirs that includes Dean Achesons Pulitzer Prize-winning Present at the Creationandw orks by Henry Kissinger,Madeleine Albright and Clintons immediate predecessor,Condoleezza Rice. According to Simon & Schuster, Clinton will write about everything fromt he killing of Osama bin Laden and the Arab Spring to China and climate change. She will share herv iews as to what it takes for the United States to secure and sustain pros-p erity and global leadership. Throughout, S ecretary Clinton will offer vivid personal anecdotes and memorieso f her collaboration with President Obama and his n ational security team, BOOKS Hillary Clinton memoir and policy book expected on shelves in 2014 M CT Hillary Clinton

They are multifaceted and they can see nearly 360 degrees around. It is said that dragonfly eyes contain up to 30,000 individual lenses. Human eyes only have one. Many tales and myths have beeni mparted over the y ears about dragonflies. Inf act,these magnific ent insects derived t heir name from the mythical dragon. Native Americans believed that the dragonfly was,in fact,a dragon that wast ricked by a coyote to shapeshift into its present form of an insect. Once the dragon took the form of a dragonfly, it couldnt shift back. Thena nd now the dragonfly represents swiftness,illusion and c hange. Dragonflies are of the o rder Odonata,and are not flies at all. Worldwide,there are about 5,000 species of Odonata,which also includes damselflies. In the UnitedS tates alone,there are approximately 400 species. Female dragonflies lay eggs in or near lakes, streams,ponds or other wet-l ands. The nymphs that hatch from the eggs feed and grow underwater. These nymphs are predators and eat tadpoles,snails and insects while in this stage. They have a special appendage on their head that they use as a spear to catch prey. They are predatory insects from birth. The gills of the nymphs are located inside the abdomen. The tiny creature will expand and contract its abdomen to move water over its gills and squeeze the water out rapidly for movement. The majority of the dragonflys life is spent in the larval stage in the water. It will molt many times during this time and development varies depending on altitude and latitude. This stage can be from one to six years. They are not born with wings but developt hem throughout the metamorphosis process. Once the l arva has completed its growth and development stage,it will leave its aquatice nvironment and start a brand new life as a dragonfly. O nce the dragonfly reaches adulthood,it only lives for a few weeks in which time it m ust mate and reproduce. Male dragonflies are very territorial. Usually when you see dragonflies chasing each other it is one male protect-i ng his area from another. However,when you see two dragonflies flying while attached,you can be fairly certain they are mating. D ragonflies are extremely swift in their flight,reaching s peeds of up to 30-35 miles per hour. They flap theirw ings at about 30 beats per second compared to a bees 300. Since they have two sets of wings,they can flap without being in unison as othert ypes of insects do. Their back wings can be moving one way and the front another direction. The wings are mostly transparent and movev ery fast,so it often appears that they have more than two pairs. The front wings of the dragonfly are slightly longer than the rear wings. This helps with both speed and maneuverability. They are extremely strong fliers and can hover,fly backwards, sideways and even loop around. Dragonflies have very large,compound eyes. They are multifaceted and they can see nearly 360 degrees around. It is said that dragonfly eyes contain up to 30,000 individual lenses. Human eyes only have one. Even though most of the insects brain is devoted to sight,they dont see detail well but are attracted to movement. However,they do have a special area,directly in front of their compound eyes,that isf lat and is concentrated with eye cells,which allows them t o pinpoint insects as they fly. Even though dragonflies h ave six legs,they cannot walk very well. They are b uilt for flying and grab insects out of the air and eat them while in flight. They are c arnivorous their entire lives and have a voracious appetite in every stage. As adults,dragonflies can eat their own weight ini nsects in less than an hour. This ravenous appetite keeps mosquitoes,which are their main food source,and other insect pest populations inc heck.Dragonfly triviaThough many people fear t hem,dragonflies cause no harm to humans. Dragonflies will sometimes travel in swarms,which may be related to weather changes such as the passage of cold fronts. The largest dragonfly fossil had a wingspan of nearly three feet. That makes it the largest flying insect in known history. Today,the largest dragonfly is found in Costa Rica. It has a wingspan of 712inches. Dragonflies have been seen as evil in many cultures. The nickname devils darning needlecame from the myth that dragonflies would seek out bad children and sew their mouths shut while they slept.

C M Y K B y DAVID BAUDER AP Television WriterNEW YORKNB s recent personnel transition in morning television was a disaster. Executives hope their luck is better latea t night,and they have a year to try and make it a smooth handoff from Jay Leno to Jimmy Fallon at the onightshow. T he network announced Wednesday what has been rumored for the past several weeks:Leno will leave the job hes had most of the times ince 1992,to be replaced by Late Nighthost Fallon. The late-night franchise isa lso returning to its roots, leaving California for a New York studio. T he thinking is clear: Leno is 62,his hair graying. T he eager Fallon is 38,looks younger,hangs with his ultra-hip house band theR oots and slow jams the news with President Obama. A ll Leno does is consistently rank No. 1 in his field, a status not many people at NBC can claim these days. The Todashow was t ops a year ago,too,or at least running neck-and-neck w ith ABCs Good Morning America. Then the toppling of coh ost Ann Curry spread a black cloud. Ratings tumb led,executives lost their jobs,Matt Lauers popularity plummeted and GMAis n ow the most popular morning show. Could history repeat itself at the same network? Im sure the people at ( corporate owner) Comcast and NBC are keeping their fingers crossed that its not another public relations black eye,said BradA dgate,analyst for Horizon Media. N BCs hand was forced, to its perspective,by ABCw hen that network put Jimmy Kimmel in the time slot shared by Leno and CBSDavid Letterman earlier this year. Young peoplea re already seeking out other entertainment choices in late-night,and NBC didnt want ABC to establish itself as the network with they oung,hip host right after the local news. e are purposefully making this change when Jay is No. 1,just as Jay replaced Johnny Carson when he was No. 1,said S teve Burke,chief executive officer of NBC Universal,in a statement. Jimmy Fallon is a unique talent and this is his time. Burke was not made available for an interview to dis-c uss NBCs reasoning and whether the network applied a ny lessons from the Curry mess to its late-night switch. The most pressing quest ion is whether Lenos fans warm to Fallon,or if they u se this as an opportunity to try something else. Lenos fans did not accept Conan O Brien in 2009 when he took over Tonightfor less than a year. Fallons humor is broader than OBriens, and would seem a better fit. L eno also presumably wont be around for a direct comparison this time. When OBrien worked at onight,Leno was in them idst of his failed primetime experiment on NBC. T heres no telling whether fans of Leno will resent then etworks treatment of the comic the way morning viewers took out their distaste for what happened to Curry on Today.NBC isd islodging him from latenight for the second time; what did he do to deserve the door? Viewers might also quest ion the networks regard for them. Why is NBC taking my favorite comic away? Letterman,while hes been no big fan of his rival Leno through the years,was already pushing this narrative on his own show Wednesday,taped shortly after NBCs announcement. How many times can a guy get pushed out of the job?Letterman asked. Whats the matter with NBC? Whats the matter with these guys? You know, honestly,what are they t hinking? He congratulated Leno on h is Tonighttenure,if in fact youre not coming back. Both the New York Daily News and Post ran a frontp age picture of Leno driving a motorcycle with Fallon in t he side car,his fist raised. The News added bundles of cash on Fallons lap,witht he headline:Hit the road, Jay:Leno driven out of Tonightby Fallon. s difficult to give up a program that wins its time p eriod by 33 percent,and Jay has always been a great friend to the affiliates,said John Dawson,general manager for five NBC affiliatesi n Kansas. For that alone it will be hard to give him up. But I believe in Jimmys ability to retain Jays viewers and to bring his ownu nique audience to that time period. N BC is timing the change for maximum impact. It willh appen around the Winter Olympics in Russia,which is expected to give the network a large prime-time audience that will be peppered withp romos. Barring a major change in NBCs sagging prime-time fortunes,Fallon will quickly be on his own when theO lympic flame is extinguished. The Curry debacle was punctuated by her tearful last day as host in June,a deeply uncomfortable television moment. She has largely been silent since,as NBC has tried many differentw ays to convince Today viewers that they shouldnt blame Lauer for an unpopular decision. NBC says privately that F allon has tried judiciously to make sure Leno was on board with the move,and that Leno has a higher regard for Fallon personally than hed id for OBrien. A few years down the line,Leno may be more ready to end his onighttenure than he was before. N BC has taken pride through the years in orderly transitions like whenB rian Williams took over for Tom Brokaw,and Meredith Vieira replaced Katie Couric.I t will put the machinery to work to make this one seaml ess,too. Or at least appear that way. There was a rocky start. W hen Leno needled NBC executives about their misera ble primetime ratings this winter,it hit a nerve with NBC Entertainment President Robert Greenblatt. He sent a note telling thec omic to cool it. That approach backfired when the n ote became public and Leno hammered his network even harder. T he first public sign of the coming transition came M onday night,when Leno and Fallon filmed a genial spoof together making fun of a ll the late-night rumors. It aired between their two shows. s clear they are trying to stave off negative reac-t ion,said Christine Becker, an associate professor at Notre Dame University and author of the News For TV Majors blog. I dont knoww hether its going to be successful or not. T hats because of a sense that theres still somethingm issing,she said. Jay is saying really nice things,but what really is the deal?Becker said. Did Jay tell them that he wants tog o? Will he go someplace else? ... NBC is struggling to play the PR game and make it work but there are so many gaps and holes that itm akes it strange.

C M Y K Page B12News-SunSunday, April 7, 2013www.newssun.com Ant farms still nurture curiosity, interest in children M CT U ncle Miltons Ant Farm hit the market nearly 60 years ago, and is still selling well. Cant beat the classics By SUE MANNING Associated PressLOS ANGELES What does it take to elevate the common ant from picnic pestt o household pet? To thousands of children a nd many adults,the answer is a bit of soil and a see-t hrough enclosure that,in these modern times,can be made from an extra CD case or bought tricked out with special projection lights. A nt farms,the narrow glass or plastic containers filled with soil that mimic ant colonies,have been popular among generations of chil-d ren,and marketers say they remain in-demand even in the age of computers and video games. Uncle Milton Industries,a Los Angeles-based company that has been in business for six decades,has sold more than 20 million ant farms. Company founder Milton Levine and his brother-in-law invented the ant farm nearly 60 years ago,and the company continues to update its main product,such as with a version that includes a light that projects the antsshadows on the ceiling. As the world gets more complex,some of these classic toys become more popular,said Ken Malouf,vice president of marketing and product management. Thousands of people,not just children,enjoy insects as pets and are willing to spend the time and money on them, said Lila Higgins,manager of the Citizen Science and Live Animals exhibit at the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum. e have 16,000 people come to our bug fair every year and a lot of them buy or collect insects as pets. As long as were buying from responsible traders and collecting responsibly,I think the benefit (of taking queen ants) can far outweigh the cost to our environment, Higgins said. Ant farms can be an easy way to help nurture a childs interest in insects,since they can be homemade or purchased. Uncle Milton Industriesant farms come with 12 to 20 harvester worker ants,which are chosen because they are diggers, s trong and robust,Malouf said. Queen ants are not included,so the colony will last about three months,he said.A colony reproduces because of the queen,its sole fertile m ember. Her eggs keep the colony going for years,H iggins said. Noah Shryack of Stanton,Texas,has loved ants since he was 1 or 2 and he putt hem in his bucket and tried to bring them in the house,said his mom,Lana. She promised he could get an antf arm when he was old enough,which was last Christmas,when he was 5. He loves it. He checks every morning to see what the ants have done overnight,said Shryack, who likes taking a look too. I was almost as excited as him,she said. Rachael Estanislao,an Atlanta blogger and mother of a 6-year-old boy,treats her sons ant farm as an educational toy rather than a pet, though she has used the ants to teach him about caring for another living creature. s definitely like learning to have a pet. Its about learning to respect their environment and helping them live healthy,she said. The idea is to help kids discover nature and its critters in the hope it will make them curious about the world around them,Malouf said. Estanislao agreed,saying the farm taught Anakin about ant hills and the mounds he sees outside. Shryack said her son is amazed most by the large pieces of food the ants can carry and their teamwork to dig tunnels. Those who want to build their ant farms can do so with a handful of CD cases and instructions that are readily available online. The trickiest part is filling the colony with harvester ants the best type for keeping as pets and catching a queen,since she has a lot of worker ants protecting her,Higgins said. The best time to catch a queen,which is bigger than the worker ants,is after the mating flight,Higgins said. Once a colony is settled,it will become quite a yearslong investment, Higgins said. Her colleague,Brian Brown,curator and chief of the NHMs entomology department,didnt have an ant farm as a child but his research on ant-decapitating flies forces him to work with the insects. Scientists are working to see if the flies from Argentina and Brazil can control fire ants in the United States,Brown said. To him,ants have limited appeal as pets because there not interactive:Dogs are our perfect pets because weve evolved with them over thousands of years. They react to us,a lot of their behavior is directed toward humans. ... An ant colony is basically indifferent to our presence except when there disturbed when you bang on the glass or give them food or you mess around with their nest,Brown said. Malouf doesnt recommend toying too much with the ant farm,or leaving it in places where it can be knocked over by a pet or a human. He added that escapes, though feared by most parents,are unlikely since the seals around the farm are very tight. Brown figures an equally entertaining alternative to an ant farm could be a computerized projection of a live colony. I think ants are really interesting,but mostly they are maggot fodder for my flies,he said.

S o much so that they claimed him as one of their own when the Directors Guild of America made Ebert an honorary lifetime member at the groupsa wards ceremony four years ago. W hat better testimony for a lifes work in a profession that typically drawss neers from filmmakers and fans alike? But then E bert,who died Thursday at age 70,was not just any critic. He was THE critic. At the Chicago SunTimes since 1967 andt hrough decades as a pioneering film reviewer on t elevision,Ebert championed tiny gems that he scouted out at film festi-v als and took Hollywoods biggest names to task when t hey missed the mark. Ebert drew his own criticism that the thumbs-up,t humbs-down trademark of his TV shows over-simplified the way we look at f ilms. Yet with his chubby frame and thick-rimmed g lasses,he popularized the notion of the dweebish critic as arbiter of cultural taste,inspiring a generation of TV and onliner eviewers much as Woodward and Bernstein inspired a generation of investigative journalists. Just as inspirational was how Ebert continued the work he loved throughr epeated ailments. He lost parts of his jaw and the a bility to speak after cancer surgeries in 2006,yet he came back to writing fulltime and eventually returned to television. A nd that famous thumb barely scratched the surface of Eberts work as a critic,student and just plain lover of film. Roger loved movies. They were his life. His reviews went far deeper than simply thumbs up or thumbs down,said Steven Spielberg,one of the filmmakers who honored Ebert at the Directors Guild ceremony. He wrote with passion through a real knowledge of film and film history,and in doing so,helped many movies find their audiences. Ebert died at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago,two days after announcing on his blog that he was undergoing radiation treatment for a recurrence of cancer. ve lost the love of my life,his wife,Chaz Ebert, said in a statement Thursday. E bert more than just a critic

However,ignoring his l aw or the laws of our land will reap the consequences of sinful actions. T hen there is the fruit of the Spirit of God. I t comes as a result of receiving Jesus Christ into our hearts and lives and walking according to Gods Word,the Bible. It isa ccomplished by yielding more and more to the Holy S pirit abiding within the believer.

So when you feel sadn ess creeping in,agitation taking over,revenge, unkindness,poor attitude, apathy,harshness or lack of self-control,cry out, Help me,Lord.Yielding to the Holy Spirit will prod uce a God-like response.

Leo can master different roles Horoscopes D ear Abby: Im married to the love of my life. Our 25th anniversary will be here soon. My issue is,my husband has a beard I cannot stand. Its long and unkempt,and makes him look 10 years older than he is. It has become a real issue between us. He keeps telling me about women and co-workers who tell him what a nice full beardhe has. I dont care what these women think. I am his wife,and I think he should shave it or at least trim it for me. I am withholding sex (which is very important to him) until he trims it and no longer make eye contact with him because I cant stand looking at him. What should I do? I love him more than anyone else in the world does. Shouldnt he respect my wishes? In a Hairy Situation in Duluth Dear Hairy Situation: If you want to make your marriage last 26 years,please stop using sex as a weapon to manipulate your husband. That said,your opinion should supersede that of the women he sees at work. A beard can be flattering if it is kept clean and trimmed. If its not,a man can look like Howard Hughes in his latter days,which is truly unfortunate. Because you are unable to get your message across, enlist the help of your husband's barber. Perhaps he can get through to him. Dear Happy: Im planning on moving into the same apartment complex as my ex-boyfriend. Its all I can afford and still be close to where my family lives. Hell be on one side,and Ill be on the far side. I dont think he will be driving to the side Ill be living on. Should I text him and let him know Im moving nearby but Im not stalking him? Or should I keep my mouth shut and hope he never sees my car? Too Close for Comfort? Dear Too Close?: Before you sign the lease,ask yourself how you would feel if you saw your ex-boyfriend involved with another woman. If it would be painful,then it would be healthier for you to find an apartment elsewhere. Next,ask yourself why your ex might think you were stalking him. If there is a grain of truth to it, again,you should not move there. If,however,there isnt,it is not necessary to text him about anything. If he sees your car and has a problem with it,do not make it your problem. The romance is over and so is the drama. Live your life and let him live his. Dear Abby: I recently sent my wife flowers,but she took umbrage because I didnt take the time to stop b y the florist and jot down a message myself. I phoned in the order and dictated the message instead. I am hurt and mystified over this alleged faux pas. Did I commit a social no-no? Steven in St. Louis Dear Steven:Of course not. For your wife to have criticized your gift was ungracious. She may have been upset about something else or having a bad day. Dictating the message on the card was perfectly appropriate. Dear Abby: ve been divorced for nearly two years,and my ex and I have moved on. My question is about our family portraits. I dont want to throw them away because of my kids, but I dont really want them around my house either. What should I do?

C M Y K LIVING B14 PA GE News-Sun Sunday, April 7, 2013 Get everything in one suitcase. Get through security faster. Get there looking better.CHOOSE THE RIGHT BAGTHINK COLOR.Rob Cochrane,vice president and chief merchandise officer at Dallas-based Bag n Baggage,says his customers are looking for lightweight luggage in a variety of colors. Over the past three years,the company has seen its sales of black bags decline from 75 percent to around 56 percent. He says its mostly an expression of personality,but it also helps you spot your bag on the luggage carousel.LIGHTEN UP.Weight is a major concern because many airlines now charge a fee for luggage that exceeds certain limits. Cochrane says the challenge for manufacturers has been to develop materials that are durable but lighter,so that travelers can put more in their bags. A popular choice? Ballistic nylon.TRY EXPANDING.Another facet of your bag is expandability. While expandable luggage isnt new,the trend is moving to zipperless expansion. Simply press a button inside your bag and watch it pop up,much like a pop-up camper.PACK IT RIGHTPUT THE SQUEEZE ON IT.The compressor bag,above,has several uses. Place bulky items, like sweaters,inside and then roll the bag to release the excess air and save space. On the way home,put your dirty clothes in it to keep those from taking up as much room,as well. It can also be used for wet things,like swimsuits and towels from that last dip in the pool.SOCK IT TO EM.Pack your socks separately so they dont get lost among your larger items.THE TO-DO ABOUT SHOES.OneBag.com suggests the use of a shoe bag to prevent shoes from damaging your other items. (Ours cost $12.99). Or choose luggage with shoe compartments (ours is a Tumi TTech,$450). The site also advises that you wear your bulkiest pair of shoes, if possible,rather than pack them. For the pairs you pack,turn the soles out and place the heels at opposite ends. You can use the space inside your shoes for fragile items.WITHOUT A WRINKLE.Rolling your clothes is one of the most commonly suggested methods for avoiding wrinkles,though Chris Luce,a buyer for The Container Store,says the real key is keeping clothes from moving around. The Eagle Creek packing folders,each contain a folding board with a step-by-step diagram to help you fold shirts along natural creases. Amy Fletcher,a packing demonstrator for The Container Store,also suggests alternating collars and wrapping pants around shirts to avoid creasing. Or you can skip the folder and just place pants at the bottom of the bag, layer shirts over them,and fold the pants over the top.INSIDER TRICKSTOTE-ALLY HELPFUL.TheTravel Insider.com advises packing a collapsible,lightweight tote bag in your main piece of luggage,so you have a way either to bring home your travel treasures or to make room for them in your suitcase. The Container Store suggests its nylon shopping bag,right, which folds into a carry pouch you can attach to a belt or backpack,$4.99.PLASTIC MAKES PERFECT.TheTravel Insider.com suggests putting all of your loose personal items in a large zip-lock bag before passing through security,so that you can save time instead of emptying your pockets and then collecting everything again. Productivity expert David Allen,author of Getting Things Done:The Art of Stress-Free Productivity(Viking,$24.95),makes a similar suggestion for your personal electronic devices put them in a clear plastic envelope to keep them all together,which also helps to prevent others from accidentally picking up whats yours.NO MORE SPILLS.There are few things more unpleasant than having a bottle spill in your bag. Eagle Creek offers lined packing cubes for toiletries Take the next step and try putting liquid items in Nalgene leakproof bottles,right, from The Container Store, 49 cents to $2.24 each. Just dont forget to label them.LOCK IT UP.If you dont want to worry about leaving your luggage unlocked or having security officers break your lock in a random search,consider a TSA lock. You know the combination,while the Transportation Security Administration has a universal key to open it. Eagle Creek safe lock,left, is about $8.RESOURCES Dont want to forget anything,but too busy to make a list? Let someone else do it. Try The Universal Packing List Web site atupl.codeq.info. Youll select the basic parameters of your trip,and the site will generate a packing list. If you want to pack light,try the tips atOneBag.com. The site shows you how to pack everything you need in a carry-on. TheTravelInsider.comoffers practical pointers from its experts and readers,such as this:Pack a range of old clothing that youre ready to throw away. Wear the items and then leave them behind.IN THE AIRWhen deciding what to pack,you need to know the rules of airline travel. Heres a primer: When flying,your free baggage allowance is limited to two checked suitcases or items,one carry-on and one personal item. Your carry-on is limited to 45 inches (length + width + height and must fit under your seat or in an overhead bin. Some airlines will allow you to check extra bags for a fee. In addition,size and weight limits apply,with oversize bags also incurring fees,if the airline will accept them. Its important to remember that the fees are for one-way travel and are paid upon check-in. Youll have to pay on the way back,as well. Each airline has its own rules,but heres an idea of baggage fees,based on American Airlinescurrent listings at www.aa.com: Fourth,fifth or sixth bag:$80 each Seventh,eighth or ninth bag:$105 each 10th and greater bag:$180 each 50-70 pounds:$25 each 70-100 pounds:$50 each A bag between 63 and 115 inches:$80.
