The historic building at 122 S. Commerce Ave. caught fire at about 1 a.m. A garbage truck crew was passing as a window blew out. They notified the fire department immediately. As quickly as the firefighters arrived on scene,however,the smoke was already so thick in the street the firefighters had to grope door to door to find the burning building. It took five hours to control the blaze. The cause of the fire is under investigation,but the Greg Bubb of the State Fire Marshalls office told the News-Sun it looked like a power surge had caused an electrical fire that traveled through the buildings hard pine timbers,joists, trusses and supporting walls.

Centennial Park to be dedicated on Earth Day By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING It a ppears a new plan for the Highlands County Tourist Development Comm-i ssion wont be ready for the commissions scheduled night meeting on A pril 23. What were described as a few wrinklesreportedly needed to be worked out,with a list of items that were not included in the original TDC recom-m endation to the Board of County Commissioners. The items will focus on what to do with the existing funds and their allocation. Plans reportedly are to b ring the issue before the TDCs regular meeting on A pril 25 for their full and complete recommendation. The issues may be revised,and if subse-q uently approved,they could be placed on an upcoming county commission agenda in May. Officials indicate thatl ikely at the evening meeting on May 28. The new TDC plan will be presented at this weeks meeting of the Highlands County Voters League/Citizens for Government Accountability Thursday evening at the Homers Restaurant in the Sebring Square shopping plaza. Organizers say they hope to look at the plan, research what led to the idea of introducing a new structure and discuss the pros and cons of the plan as it now stands. Highlands County Commissioner and TDC Committee Chairman Don Elwell has accepted the invitation to attend and will outline the plan, as well as answer questions from the group. The TDC is recommending all of the socalled net mone that is gross revenues minus all administration and operating expenses be distributed with the following percentages:70 percent for marketing and promotions,20 percent for local events,and 10 percent for lakes maintenance. That is significantly different from the original plan sold to voters 11 years ago. However,the notion of putting the new proposal before voters again for their approval has been repeatedly rebuffed by the majority of county commissioners.

Sheriffs Office undergoes shuffle with transfers provides ideal,long-burning fuel. Once the fire took hold it was almost possible to puto ut. The firefighterseffort was complicated by the buildings older construction. Now forbidden by code,in the late 18th and early 19th centuries a method called balloon f raming was used in building multi-level stories. A ccording to firefighternation.com,balloon-framing involves a continuous wooden stud wall member that stretches from the foundationt o the attic. There are no inherent vertical fire stops. In addition,because floor to ceiling heights were installed at theb uilders whim, there are many gaps within the walls that provide oxygen for the fire. Fire Chief Brad Batz explained the combination of the woods ideal fuel and the construction caused the fire to follow the route of the supporting timbers inside the walls. The firefighters tackled the flames in one area,only to have them pop up in another. The fire burned in a serpentine way following the wood frame,Batz said. It burned inside the walls. Its like (the buildings) spine has burned away. Batz guesses it took about 1,500 to 2,000 gallons of water per minute for five hours to kill the fire. Batz said he is especially proud of his crew because the fire held unique difficulties and the next door business was only a 3 feet away. That building has a modern fire wall on the side facing the fire that retarded its progression long enough for the firefighters to arrive and save it. Once the fire was out,the fire department,fire marshall and building officials faced a dangerous situation with all the framing burned out, only air and ashes held upw hat was left of the building. The structure was twisting slowly,shifting to one side towards LampeKiefer and in i mmediate danger of collapse. In addition to the threat to Lampe-Kieffer,the building might collapse into the street. By 10 a.m.,city and emergency officials were creatinga plan of action to knock the building down. This is a heartbreaking loss,Batz said. I feel terrible, thats their livelihood. He added the owner had rented the building only the day before,and Lampe-Kiefer had evacuated their office until it was safe. Rosanne Kiefer, however,has only one focus. God did us a blessing,she said. He gave (the firefighters) so much wisdom and so much stamina. The chief was not a happy man,he got so frustrated chasing the fire in the building,trying to contain it. Thank God for them. Im a very appreciative woman today,I tell you. I want to send a special thank you to the (driver of the garbage truck),Robert DArinzo said. He has owned 122 Commerce Ave. for 10 years. The fire guys were wonderful,he said.

It also gave us powerful examples of the best.A s first one bomb,then another,exploded along the f inal 100 yards of the 26.2mile course of the worlds most famous marathon,many people in what is simply a reflex born of evolution r an away from the blasts. But judging by the video t hat was played over and over on television in the hours after the attack,even morep eople ran without hesitation straight toward danger. N ot all of those people you saw wading into the carnage were police officers,medicso r firefighters,or even race volunteers. Many of them were simply people standing n earby whose first reaction was to do the opposite of w hat common sense says to do when the world turns inside out. There were also reports of runners crossing the finishl ine and immediately running to the nearest hospital to give blood for the victims. Anyone who has done any kind of long race can tell you that the last thing you want to d o when you cross the finish line is run anywhere. And that is why,no matter who was behind this unspeakable act of violence,n o matter what their reason for doing it,no matter what their ultimate goal is,they wont win. The Boston Marathon is held on Patriot Day.And thes pirit of patriotism that spawned the holiday in the f irst place can not be broken, no matter how many lunatics there are out there who thinkd ropping bombs into trash cans in the middle of a c rowded sidewalk is a victory for their cause. It took mere seconds for the true spirit of Americans to show up following theb lasts,as everyday people turned their faces into the r olling smoke and dust and dropped to their knees amid the blood and carnage to helpp eople they had most likely never seen before. For all t hey knew,there were more bombs waiting to go off. But that didnt stop them. A nd this act of terrorism will not stop America. There will be more Boston M arathons. There will be more Patriot Day celebrat ions. Will they ever be quite the same? No,of course not. But, as we have proved time and time again,Americans arep erfectly capable of picking themselves up off their knees,dusting themselves off and pushing ahead. This time will be no different. Spirit of Americans shines through smoke in Boston For some of our neighb oring children a safe, secure and loving family is not what they experience. These children encounter trauma at a very early age. T he month of April is Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month and the caring staff at the Champion for ChildrenA dvocacy Center is optimistic about the possibility of changing even onec hilds life. They are hoping to generate a community interest in providing fos-t er or adoptive care to the waiting children in our c ommunity. Foster parents are not super-human,they are reg-u lar people who are willing to open their hearts and p rovide safe homes and engage in positive relationships with children. Heartland for Children is the local,community basedc are,lead agency that has redesigned the foster care s ystem for Highlands, Hardee and Polk counties. Teri Saunders,the chiefe xecutive officer,said of the nearly 700 churches b etween these three counties we should be able to find 100 new families to f oster and 30-40 families to adopt the waiting children. Emphasis given to the church is deliberate; research shows that manyo f the families that adopt belong to a faith community and already enjoy the benefits of fellowship and encouragement from ac hurch family. Significance is given in the Bible to the c are of orphans,the books of Isaiah and James tell ust o defend and look after the oppressed and to take up the cause of the fatherless. Many of the children that are placed in foster careh ave been removed from unsafe environments,often times their parents have also experienced trauma and as long as there is trau-m a in the home there will be a need for foster and adoptive parents. M issy Albritton and Pastor Darin Canary of First Christian of Wauchula began the 111 Project in this area and have teamedw ith Heartland to call on Christian families. 111 represents:1 Church 1 Family1 Purpose and is working toward a goal of linking interested Christian fami-l ies to Heartland for Children. Teri said that H eartland is prepared to train,support and license foster homes right now ino ur community. Visit the website for H eartland for Children at www.heartlandforchildren.o rg and preview the Heart Gallery for the precious children that are waitingf or a family. Everyone involved in p revention of child abuse wants families to understand the risk factors fora buse:lack of social networks,immature parents, l ack of concrete support especially when experiencing troubles,low income, i nadequate awareness of child development,substance abuse and others.

Brittany Lauren is a volunteer at the Champion for ChildrenA dvocacy Center. Will you be our hero? Guest Column Brittany Lauren SHS staffed with wonderful peopleEditor: I am very grateful for my children and the way they have turned out. Always well behaved,well mannered and very respectful. I am new to the teaching world and have never been behind the scenes of what goes on in schools. With that being said,I have a whole new respect for all teachers and paraprofessionals in all schools. I have been working at Sebring High School since September of 2012 and I must say what an eye opener. From the principal,Dr. Anne Lindsay,to the para-professionals and coaches,I cannot say enough about them. Coach Travis Rapp,both a baseball coach and a teacher of the (BICvior Intervention Class, is truly something else. The time and patience he takes with each child with a one-on-one approach is beyond amazing in his relentless efforts. I am so thankful that my children are well behaved,but to all those that arent,I am thankful that there are people,teachers like Coach Rapp,that day after day come in with a positive attitude, always giving 100 percent to all kids. It takes a special kind of person to do what he does day after day. Then we have Dean Jeff Shoemaker,a dean that all the teenagers respect and admire. He has a way with the kids that are above average in all ways. He displays compassion as well as a stern lesson with every discipline action he takes. I have seen firsthand how the kids thank him after he has just given them time off for misbehaving. Dean Shoemaker has the skills to make the worst behaving kid into a kid that is truly remorseful and sorry for his actions. He takes the time to make the child understand what he has done and what he or she needs to do to be a better person. Principal Dr. Anne Lindsay is well liked by all and always out there being seen and on top of any kids that are out of class or misbehaving. Principal Lindsay has a outstanding rapport with all the teenagers at Sebring High School; I believe she is the motivating factor on why all the other staff give their all to the students here. I am proud to be a part of the Sebring High School family and believe these actions go unnoticed day after day and I want the Sebring community to know that their children are well taken care of and genuine,heartfelt staff are the reason. Gene Kowalski Sebring Will you trust TDC this time?Editor: The new TDC plan is built on trust. They say:If you will just give us a 3 percent tourist tax, instead of a 2 percent tourist tax (that would be $450,000 per year instead of $300,000 per year),we will bring great numbers of tourists to Highlands County. You can trust us. We know what we are doing and know we can do it. We remember back in 2002 when you were promised that we would charge winter tourists a 2 percent bed tax and use that money to bring summer tourists to Highlands County. Come on now,we did 50 percent of what we said. We charged a 2 percent bed tax and if you allow us to charge 3 percent,we know we can bring tourists this time. I forgot even though they could,the county commissioners are not going to allow you to have a say in this,are they? And we know we said that 10 percent of the money would be used for nothing but maintaining and improving beaches,lakes and rivers. OK,so we took $50,000 out of the lakes fund and used it for advertising. Surely you wouldnt hold that against us. And I know we said that we would promote and advertise culture programs such as Highlands Little Theatre,Highlands Art League,the outdoor drama Florida(that is something like Swamp Hammock with no mud) that didnt fly either. But thats not our fault and the rest didnt request grants,so how can you blame us? But you watch us when we get that $450,000 per year,just trust us... And as far as that not spending one dime more than 29 percent of the tax collected,on administration,well there was a slight misjudgment of how much it would cost to run a top notch operation like we have. You know,to get quality employees you need to pay quality wages and benefits. And that puts us in the 42 percent range,but it only amounted to a $237,226.56 overage in six years. But we never noticed that for the first nine years,because we werent keeping very good records... And you ask if we dont do what we say we will do this time,like we did last time,what can you do about it? Well,if you dont have a sunset in the plan,sorry Charlie, you cant do anything,unless you want to collect petitions from 15 percent of the voters of Highlands County (about 10,000 required then win an election to repeal the Tourist Development Tax. And we know that Ross MacBeth told you that you didnt need a sunset because the tax would only last 15 years. Just a small mistake,on his part,but dont worry about all that,all we need is for you to trust us again.

C M Y K A ssociated PressMIAMI More than 230,000 Floridians would be newly eligible for substance abuse treatment under the federal health overhaul and that number nearly doubles if the state also expands Medicaid,according to research by The Associated Press. While experts are encouraged by the increased access to services,some worry the demand will burden an already strapped industry. Theres going to be a period of stress but in no way does it deter us from fully supporting the full expansion,said Bob Sharpe,president of the Florida Council for Community Mental Health. Currently only 1 cent of every health care dollar in the United States goes toward addiction,and few alcoholics and drug addicts receive treatment. Many experts say one of the biggest barriers has been a lack of health insurance,but that will change under the Affordable Care Act and more Floridians will likely get coverage through some type of alternative to Medicaid expansion and tens of thousands may be eligible for federal subsidies to purchase their own private insurance through the states online health exchange in less than a year. More than 1.3 million Floridians,or 9 percent of the state population,need substance abuse treatment, although only about 112,000 are actually receiving that help. But 231,392 Floridians could get treatment under the federal health law and more than 408,000 could get treatment if the state opts for some type of Medicaid expansion,according to an AP analysis of government data. one-get one half off punch card specials.

The public is welcome to attend this free program. Millions of years ago,the peninsula that would become Florida broke away from the West Coast of Africa and settled into its present location. Since then, its landscape has changed from an African-like Savannah to a subtropical paradise. Ancient megafauna that once roamed the forests and grasslands disappeared as humans arrived. Wentz will describe what life in Florida was like for the earliest Native Americans. Wentz holds a doctoral degree in anthropology from Florida State University and specializes in the analysis of human remains with foci on ancient disease and population health. Wentz has analyzed remains found in prehistoric sites in Windover, Little Salt Spring,and Calico Hill. She has done skeletal work in St. Croix, England,and the Ukraine, and obtained experience in forensics at the C.A. Pound Human Identification Laboratory at the University of Florida.

Martin Richard was a mong the three people killed in the explosions Monday,according to U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch,a friend of the family for 25 years. The bos mother,Denise,a nd 6-year-old sister,Jane, were badly injured. T hey had gone to get ice cream,then returned to the area near the finish line.N eighbor Jack Cunningham said Martins father,Bill, w as a runner but had been injured and didnt run the marathon. They were looking in the crowd as the runners werec oming to see if they could identify some of their friends w hen the bomb hit,Lynch said. Lynch said the family was a ttempting to get over the race barriers and into the s treet when the second blast occurred,killing Martin. Bill Richard and the older broth-e r,Henry were not seriously injured,but doctors did remove ball bearings from B ill Richards leg,Lynch said. Ball bearings are meant as anti-personnel munitions, he said. They were trying to cause carnage here. He described the family as v ery strong and said they were doing better than might be expected,and rallying around the 6-year-old girl. On Tuesday morning,cand les burned on the stoop of the familys single-family home in the citys Dorchester section,and peacewas written in chalko n the front walkway. A childs bicycle helmet lay o verturned on the front lawn. What a gift. To know him was to love him,said long-t ime friend Judy Tuttle,who remembered sitting at the d ining room table having tea with Denise Richard while Martin did his homework. He had that million-dollar smile and you never knew what was going to come out o f him. Denise is the most spectacular mother that y ouve ever met and Bill is a pillar of the community. It doesnt get any better than these people. Neighbor Betty Delorey, 8 0,said Martin loved to climb the neighborhood trees and hop the fence outside his home. I can just remember his m other calling him, Martin!if he was doing something wrong,she said. Just a vivacious little kid. Delorey had a photo showi ng Martin dressed as the character Woody from the Toy Story films,wearing a cowboy hat,a sheriffs badge,jeans and a big smile.H is sister,Jane,was at his right dressed as Woodys friend,Jesse. Their older brother,Henry,was to their left,dressed as Harry Potter. Im sick to my stomach, s he said. Its hard to say anything really. T he childrens father,Bill, is the director of a local community group,and ana vid runner and bicyclist. Denise Richard works as a l ibrarian at the Neighborhood House Charter School,where Martin was a third-grader and Jane attends first grade. C ounselors were being made available Tuesday to s taff and students,said Bodi Luse,a school spokeswoman. We are devastated,she said. The whole community i s devastated. Cunningham remembered running in a community 5Kr ace with the Richard family on a rainy day years ago. He said Martin would jump o ut of a stroller that his mother was pushing to hop i n the mud puddles along the route. I just cant get a handle on it,he said of the bos death.

C M Y K By JIMMY GOLEN Associated PressBOSTON Investigators a ppealed to the public Tuesday for amateur video and photos that might yield clues to the Boston Marathon bombing as thec hief FBI agent in Boston vowed we will go to the ends of the Earthto find whoever carried out the deadly attack. T wo bombs blew up seconds apart Monday at the finish line of one of the worlds most storied races, tearing off limbs and leaving the streets spattered withb lood and strewn with broken glass. Three people were k illed,including an 8-yearold boy,and more than 170 were wounded. A doctor treating the wounded said one of the vict ims was maimed by what looked like ball bearings or BBs. Federal investigators said no one had claimed responsi-b ility for the bombings, which took place on one of t he citys biggest civic holidays,Patriots Day. But the blasts raised the specter ofa nother terrorist attack on U.S. soil. O n Capitol Hill,Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel called the bombings a cruela ct of terrorand said a thorough investigation will have to determine whether it w as planned or carried out by a terror group,foreign or d omestic. Across the U.S.,from Washington to Los Angeles, police tightened security, monitoring landmarks,gov-e rnment buildings,transit hubs and sporting events. e will go to the ends of the Earth to identify the subject or subjects who are responsible for this despicable crime,and we will doe verything we can to bring them to justice,said R ichard DesLauriers,FBI agent in charge in Boston. He said investigators had received voluminous tips and were interviewing witnesses and analyzing the c rime scene. Gov. Deval Patrick said that contrary to earlierr eports,no unexploded bombs were found. He said the only explosives were the o nes that went off. FBI agents searched a h ome in the suburb of Revere overnight. Authorities gave no details. But investigators were seen leaving a building theree arly Tuesday carrying brown paper bags,plastic trash bags and a duffel bag. At a news conference, police and federal agents repeatedly appealed for any video,audio and photos t aken by marathon spectators,even images that people might not think are signifi-c ant. There has to be hundreds, if not thousands,of photos a nd videosthat might help investigators,state police C ol. Timothy Alben said. Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis said investigators also gathered a large number of sur-v eillance tapes from businesses in the area and intend to go through the video frame by frame. This is probably one of the most photographed areas in the country yesterday,he said. Investigators refused to g ive any specifics on the bombs and say,for example, where they might have been hidden or whether they were packed with shrapnel form aximum carnage,as is often the case in terror bombings overseas. But Dr. Stephen Epstein of the emergency medicined epartment at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center said he saw an X-ray of one victims leg that had what appears to be small,uniform, round objects throughout it similar in the appearance to BBs. T he fiery explosions took place about 10 seconds and about 100 yards apart,k nocking spectators and at least one runner off their f eet,shattering windows and sending columns of smoke rising over the street. Roupen Bastajian,a state trooper from Smithfield,R .I.,had just finished the race when he heard the e xplosions. I started running toward the blast. And there werep eople all over the floor,he said. We started grabbing t ourniquets and started tying legs. A lot of people amputated. ... At least 25 to 30p eople have at least one leg missing,or an ankle missing, or two legs missing. A t least 17 people were critically injured,police s aid. At least eight children were being treated at hospitals. In addition to losing limbs,victims suffered broken bones,shrapnel woundsa nd ruptured eardrums. At Massachusetts General Hospital,Alasdair Conn, chief of emergency services, said:This is something Ive never seen in my 25 years here ... this amount of carnage in the civilian population. This is what we expectf rom war. Eight-year-old Martin Richard was among the dead,said U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch,a family friend. Theb os mother,Denise,and 6year-old sister,Jane,were badly injured. His brother and father were also watching the race but were noth urt. A candle burned on the stoop of the familys singlefamily home in the citys Dorchester section Tuesday, and the word Peacewasw ritten in chalk on the front walk. N eighbor Betty Delorey said Martin loved to climb the neighborhood trees,and hop the fence outside his home. Tim Davey of Richmond, V a.,was with his wife,Lisa, and children near a medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners when the injured begana rriving. They just started bringing people in with no limbs,he said. Most everybody was conscious,Lisa Davey said. They were very dazed. The Boston Marathon is one of the worlds oldest and most prestigious races and about 23,000 runners participated. M ost of them had crossed the finish line by the time t he bombs exploded,but thousands more were still completing the course. what was going on until they headed to the subway and saw several fire trucks and ambulances heading to the finish line. Marlier said Monday night that she had spent most of the afternoon in her hotel room,but said the mood she could sense was one of disbelief and shock. s senseless,just senseless,that something so horrific would happen at such a great American event on such a beautiful day,she said. I had one friend who had just finished and saw everything. Most of my other friends running had already finished and were out of harms way. One friend got stopped at mile 25 and had to stop the race then and there. Another local runner,Peter Lewia of Sebring,was also finished with his run and escaped the bombings without injury,according to Chet Brojek of the Central Florida Striders. Marlier,who is currently a middle school teacher in Tennessee,ran Boston for the first time in 2007 during a noreaster,a big contrast from Mondays weather, which was near perfect for a marathon. I would rather run in another noreaster again if this would not of happened, she said. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, April 17, 2013Page A7 PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 3.639"; 16"; Black plus three; process, 98629 publix liquor; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 8 8 8 8 7 7 9 9 SAS ROOFING 7 HOME IMPROVEMENT; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, main A only; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 2 2 3 3 7 7 Continued from A1 BO STONMA RATHONBO MBINGS Local runners unhurt FBI seeks images in Boston Marathon bomb inquiry MCT An unidentified woman reacts in the aftermath of Mondays bombing at the Boston Marathon.

C M Y K By ALEX COYNE News-Sun correspondentL AKE PLACID With ominous storm clouds over-h ead and thunder roaring in the distance, Lake Placid h osted Avon Park for their first District 10-4A Tournament game and time w as precious. T he oncoming storm didnt stop the Dragons from performing strong, as they came out on top 17-0 in a threeinning ballgame. As the storm clouds came closer, the deficit between s cores grew further and further apart. The Lady Dragons certainl y got on a roll in the first i nning, both defensively and offensively. O ne hit batter followed by t hree quick outs allowed Lake Placid to go on a rally in the bottom of the first i nning. It wasnt until one and a half times through the batting order that Avon Park mana ged to get their first out. Asingle for Laine WeberCallahan, a single for Taylor Test and an overthrow at first allowed Annie WeberCallahan to earn an RBI on her double. Asingle for Courtney Delaney and a single to center for Breauna Corley allowed two more runs to score. Tamija Douglas earned a single and Jodi Grassman and Raveen Gobourne were then walked. Ahit to right-center for Shelbi Bertram resulted in a triple and three RBI. Laine Callahan, Test, Annie Callahan and Delaney all added base-knocks to keep the surge rolling. Corley was walked and Douglas earned yet another single for the Dragons. Gobourne then stepped up to the plate and cranked one to left field. Using her speed and athleticism, Raveen made it all the way home, bringing two of her teammates in with her. After the huge rally, Lake Placid went up 15-0 after the first. With hopes to bring the score closer, the Red Devils were left empty-handed as Dragon starter Holly Krett worked a one-two-three inning. Lake Placid went on another small run as Test and Annie Callahan scored in the bottom of the second. In an effort to quicken things up, Corley stepped off the bag early to end the inning in hopes of getting through the third inning before the rain came. The top of the third came, and pressure was coming from everywhere for the Dragons to get three quick outs. SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Wednesday, April 17, 2013 N ASCAR This WeekB4 By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI They had just crossed the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Lauren Fuchs was waiting to get some water. Thomas Fabian started to think about running another race in London this weekend. Moments later, everything changed. One explosion filled the air, followed by another seconds later. The bombs that went off near the finish line on Monday killed at least three people and left more than 140 injured, some critically. And for Fuchs and Fabian, who were among nearly 600 Florida residents entered in the race many of whom were unable to finish the scene would be one to never forget. Im feeling very lucky right now, said Fuchs, a runner from Coral Springs, who escaped without injury. Still, she knows that she will never look at another marathon the same way ever again. Fuchs said shes the type of person who typically worries about what-if, worst-case scenarios. But those plans never led to her even consider the possibility that something like this would happen, least of all at a race. That thought has never, never crossed my mind, Fuchs said. You always feel like youre in a safe environment, that happy environment with runners or with people who are there to enjoy watching the runners. The Fabian family actually had a plan for what to do if something like the scene that played out in Boston on Monday ever happened. Thomas and Carol Fabian have competed in about 100 races over the last five years, according to their son, Thomas Fabian II of Port Charlotte. His father finished shortly before the explosions, and his mother was still several miles back on the course. His parents had a difficult time getting reconnected after the race, since Carol Fabian was among the runners who wound up together at a cafeteria and a chapel on the Boston College campus. But through text messaging and conference-calling, everyone was able to stay in touch and confirm that they were safe. e pretty much always plan for the worst, the younger Fabian said in a telephone interview.

See BOSTON, Page B3 N ews-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Justin Machado went 8 1/3 strong innings Saturday to help propel the Panthers to a 5-2 win. By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comPostseason hopes have g one by the wayside as the bumps and bruises of the long baseball season pile up. And yet, the South Florida Panthers, rather than mail in the remaining games down the home stretch continue to battle, taking a 5-2 win Saturday against visiting Polk State and narrowly being edged on the road at St. Petersburgh, 2-1. Saturdays home win over the Eagles saw sophomore right hander Justin Machado have a strong outing, keeping the Polk bats in check over 8 1/3 innings of work. Josh Baber came on to record the final two outs in the ninth to get the save. Leading the hitting attack for South Florida were Zach Calvin, Ty Jackson, Justin Knight and Jordan Rivera, all with two hits. Calvin had two RBI, with Jackson and Knight batting in a run each. And while Mondays trip to St. Petersburg didnt go their way, it was another fine effort that saw the game tied into the ninth before a walk-off RBI single ended it in favor of theT itans. The Panthers find themselves at the bottom of the Suncoast Conference standings, but can certainly play the roll of spoilers over the next week and a half. They stand just a game and a half behind St. Petersburg and have two games left in this series with the Titans, including a home tilt tonight. From there, South Florida has one more go round with each conference foe. S tate College of Florida is comfortably settled into the top seed, but Hillsborough and Polk are locked into a chase for the second seed, and final entry into the State Tournament. After the series with St. Pete wraps up Friday, the Panthers face State College Saturday at home, travel to Hillsborough Monday, play at Polk Friday, April 26, and close the season at home the following day with one final clash with the Titans. Panthers keep on clawing News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Holly Krett pitched effectively, and quickly, Monday night, keeping Avon Park off the board and getting it done before the rains came. Associated PressMIAMI Lined up in front of their dugouts, all wearing No. 42 on Jackie Robinson Day, theW ashington Nationals and Miami Marlins stood for a moment of silence to honor bombing victims at the Boston Marathon. What began as an annual celebration to salute the man who broke baseballs color barrier 66 years ago turned s omber after a pair of explosions near the finish line in Boston about a mile fromF enway Park killed at least three people and injured more than 140 on Monday. Hours later, Major League Baseball went on with ceremonies for the fifth Jackie Robinson Day at stadiums all o ver the country and north of the border in Toronto. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by this horrible occurrence and w e are monitoring the situation, MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said in a statement. The safety of everyone that comes to our ballparks is always our top priority and we will continue to do everything to ensure a safe environment for our fans. There were moments of silence before each of the seven night games. At Great American Ball P ark in Cincinnati, President Barack Obamas remarks to the nation were shown on the video board while the Phillies were taking batting practice. I think everyone was thinking about it, said Philadelphia outfielder Ben Revere, who taped the message PRAYfor Boston on his glove. It hurts to see something like that happen.

C M Y K Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays started at 11:05 a.m. on Patriots Day in Massachusetts and ended about an hour before the bombings. Fans near Fenway Park, some who had recently exited the game, could hear the explosions. All the teams in action were asked to wear Robinsons number, retired throughout baseball in 1997. Yankees closer Mariano R ivera is the only active playe r who still wears the number, a nd he has said he is retiring after this season. Teams that didnt play on Monday planned to pay tribute to Robinson on Tuesday. Robinsons debut with the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947, is drawing special attention this year with the release of the film , which went into wide release last weekend. Robinsons widow, Rachel, along with the couples daughter, Sharon, and son,D avid, were introduced before the Dodgers played the Padres in Los Angeles. Harrison Ford bounced the c eremonial first pitch to Dodgers manager Don M attingly. Ford plays ex-Brooklyn g eneral manager Branch Rickey in . I n Minnesota, Twins first baseman Justin Morneau saw a screening of the movie in spring training and was pleasantly surprised to see brief footage of himself running onto the field during some of the stock shots of players paying homage to Robinson by wearing his No. 42. I wasnt expecting it, so it was pretty cool, Morneau said. Just quick running across the screen, but to see yourself in a movie of that importance is pretty cool. The Rays had a special screening, too. More than 100 players and o ther club employees watched the film at a theater in Port Charlotte, the Raysspring training site, and I think a loto f guys walked away with a greater appreciation of R obinsons contribution, manager Joe Maddon said b efore the Rays lost 3-2 to the Red Sox. M addon said Robinsons debut helped lead to the broader civil rights movement. I still dont think people understand how much it plays into the Martin Luther King situation, he said. The revolution that occurred at that particular moment, it mattered. That had to happen first to set that whole thing up. So when youre talking about Jackie Robinson, I dont think people realize the significance and really courage that went behind that, and in the movie it points that out the courage to not fightb ack, to be able to win over that particular mindset to be able to make all of this work, he added. R ed Sox manager John Farrell said baseball reflects s ociety in so many ways, whether its the color barriers b eing broken down. In our clubhouse youve got six or s even countries coming together. As a group of 25, you look to not only co-exist, but (recognize ality of everyone in there. Certainly, the Robinson family and certainly Jackie himself may be one of the most significant situations in our countrys history, Farrell said, breaking down segregation to the point of inclusion and I think that happens in the game today The movie earned an e stimated $27.3 million over the weekend, according to Warner Brothers, its distributor. T he subjects popularity extends to the sale of licensed sports merchandise. F anatics.com, a large online retailer of those items, s aid sales of Jackie Robinson gear on its site since the seas on began increased by more than 1,000 percent over the same time period last year. In Miami, the ceremonial first pitch was thrown out by Norman Berman, the ballboy for the Brooklyn Dodgers the year Robinson was a rookie The 84-year-old Berman lives in nearby West Palm Beach. He was the Dodgers19y ear-old ballboy in 1947 when the team reached the World Series. Berman said Robinson b efriended him, played catch with him and gave tips on h ow to make a double-play pivot. He was a wonderful person, Berman said. I learned s omething from him when you go through tough times, youve got to stay positive. I dont think most of the ballplayers who came after him would have been able to be the first black ballplayer, because they couldnt do what he did.

Some of the marathons, small marathons, its not s uch a big concern. But in the bigger cities, so many runners and so many spectators, it always crosses your mind that they can be a prime target. His parents were scheduled to fly from Boston quickly to compete in this coming weekends London Marathon. Im not sure if theyre going to go now, Fabian II said. Fuchs said she did not see, hear or smell anything that would have made her think something so severe was about to happen when she crossed the finish line. The commotion was behind her, as she made her way through the area where runners could get water, warming blankets and the medals awarded to those who finish. I didnt notice anything until the sound of that explosion, Fuchs said. ou turn around to see and all it was was a big cloud of smoke. Everyone looked around and said What was that?Some people thought it was planned, that it was just something that was supposed to happen. And I was like, that cant be it. So I kept moving, got my medal and then the other bomb went off. And thats when a lot of people started crying. Fuchs finished four minutes too late to automatically be invited back for next years Boston Marathon, t hough she said if she hits the necessary time to qualify at another race in the coming months, she would not hesitate to return. I love the town and I love the event, Fuchs said. I know what happened here will put a damper on it, but people need to keep moving forward. People cant be held back by this. Continued from B1 Boston, runners sorting through the shock News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Courtney Delaney hammers this pitch Monday night, something the Lady Dragons made a habit of in their 17-0, D istrict Tournament win. Continued from B1 With fans screaming, coaches yelling, lightning flashing and the thunder roaring, the Dragons managed to get three quick outs and the game was in the books with the 17-0 win. Running for shelter as the rain became to fall hard, Senior Captain Laine Callahan saw the benefit of the surge in offense. e really swung the bats t onight which is great because it helped us prepare for Mulberry tomorrow, she said. We just have to stay aggressive. Considering the top-seeded Panthers trounced the Dragons twice during the season, by 14-0 and 12-1 scores, keeping the bats going would be a very good thing.

Ree Drummond,known to her fans as The Pioneer Woman,is raising four activekids on a working cattle ranch in Oklahoma and has written two best-selling cookbooks. She says she loves to find new ways to put more delicious veggies on her familys table. I get so excited about my garden maybe a little too excited! Drummond says. Sometimes I literally have vegetables coming out my ears. Fortunately,ve got four kids who love to pick just about anything I plant,so everything gets harvested on time if not a little earlier. When I bring those veggies into my kitchen,nothing shows off their fresh flavor like a little bit of butter or,even better,Land O LakesButter with Olive Oil & Sea Salt. I love this product because it comes in pre-measured,one-quarter cup sticks of butter. T hat makes prep easier,because so many of my recipes,like my Pasta Primavera,call for just 2 to 4 tablespoons of butter. If you dont have a vegetable garden or cant always get fresh produce,dont despair. Flash-frozen vegetables retain much of their flavor and nutrient value. Thaw vegetables before using them in these recipes,or just heat them through and toss with high-quality butter for an easy side dish. When they taste this good,kids will be saying,More veggies,please! Ree Drummond has partnered with Land OLakes and blogs at www.ThePioneerWoman.com.

C M Y K D ear Abby: My wife and I have been married 17 years. For the most part, our marriage has been great,and I love her very m uch. Lately,though,I have felt that our sexual and emotional intimacy has been lacking. I spoke to her about it recently and tried to explain how I feel. She has responded,and things are improving. S till,she spends most of her time on her cellphone checking email,Facebook, Pinterest and watching Netflix. At bedtime,she stays on her phone or lapt op until after I have gone t o bed. When she comes to bed,she ignores me and g oes straight to sleep,even if I have been lying there awake in the dark waiting for her. H as she fallen in love w ith her cellphone? Even if w e dont have sex all the time,I would just like to be able to talk to her or h old her for a minute before we go to sleep. Any suggestions other than throwing her phone out the window? Abandoned Husband in Utah Dear Abandoned: You s ay your wife has responded and things are hopeful. That means she is at least receptive to working ony our marital relationship. The problems that cellphones cause in relationships is something I amh earing about with increasing frequency. People have become so dependent upon their digital companions that in some cases its impossible to turn them off because people haveb ecome literally addicted. I n cases like this,a licensed therapist should be consulted. Of course, like any addiction the suf-f erer must be willing to admit there is a problem and want to do somethinga bout it. I wish there was a 12-step program to which I could refer you,but I was unable to locate one. In the future Im willing to bet that thell sprout up like mushrooms. Dear Abby: Six months ago,I realized I had a drinking problem and decided to go through a chemical dependence program as an outpatient. Im sober now and attend meetings a few times a week. My problem is someone I was barely acquainted with was also in the same program. I didnt regard it as a problem at first,but now Im concerned. At a meeting a few months ago,I mentioned to the group that I also attend a meeting in another town closer to my home. Next thing I know,this man is attending the same meet-i ng. He always makes a point of telling me about w hats going on with the people we went through treatment with. I am active in service work and plan to attend a r egional meeting at a reso rt o ver a weekend. Guess who has suddenly decided to do the same? Im nervous about being around this man. I dontw ant to compromise his sobriety,but I cant stand s eeing him at every meeting and event I attend. My husband is also botheredb y it,and Im considering not attending any meetings a t all because hes creeping me out. How should I handle this? Sober and Creeped Out Dear Creeped Out: If there is a group moderator or contact,discuss thisw ith that person. Because you want less contact with your admirer,look around for another group. Even if you will have tot ravel a bit farther,it will be worth the effort. I f you do happen to run into him in the future andh e tries to engage you in conversation about other patients from your program,cut the conversation short by telling him youa re not interested in hearing about them. One of the hallmarks of 12-step programs is anonymity and it should be respected. W rite Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Making stock from scratch i s about as satisfying as it gets. Being theone who purchased (or even better,grew) the vegetables that youreusing to nourish yourf amily means that you know exactly whats inthat pot. Like with anything that comes out of a package, withstore-bought stock you cant really be sure of the quality of theingredients that were used. In my opinion (and thats just what it is my personal opinion),homemade vegetable stock is far superior to the brands youre going tofind on the store shelves, both in terms of nutrition and in taste. And making vegetable stock really couldnt be any easier. First,grab a variety of organic vegetables. I like using carrots,onions,celery, tomatoes,mushrooms and broccoli,but you can reallyuse whatever you like. If youre not sure what to use,remember thefollowing: For sweetness,add carrots or parsnips For body,try using sweet potatoes or white potatoes For a bit of spice,use garlic and onions For color and acidity, add tomatoes For that rich earthiness, add beans,celery,cabbage or broccoli (Heres a frugal tip for you. Save your vegetable p eelings,ends andscraps in a container in the freezer and add those to your veggiestocks instead of wasting all that nutrition.) Y ou then need some seasonings,but nothing too strong. Youre going touse this as a stock,so you will add whatever additional sea-s oningsyou need when youre turning it into soup or whatever dish youregoing to use it for. I usually use garlic,bay leaves,pepper and seasalt. And of course you need water. To make your stock,simply place your roughly chopped vegetables (youdont even need to peel them) in a large pot,add your seasonings andcover the whole thing with water. Bring to a boil and simmer for an hour or so. After straining your vegetables,your broth is ready to use. You caneither store it in jars in the fridge,or portion it out,ladle intoresealable freezer bags and keep them in the freezer. I also like to fill up an ice c ube tray with fresh stock. This givesme my own stock cubes when I only need a couple spoonfuls of theg oodstuff for a recipe (two c ubes equals about a quarter cup). Do you make your own s tocks?
