BY BRENDAN FARRINGTON Associated PressTALLAHASSEE While the GOP on the national level discusses whether it needs to change its messaging to appeal to a broader base, Republicans in the Florida House are clearly sticking with a conservative social agenda. They voted to send a message to Congress and President Barack Obama to keep their hands off citizens guns in the wake of the Newtown,Conn.,elementary school shootings. In addition, the House is considering a bill that would allow guns in schools. It already has sent the Senate three bills aimed at protecting fetuses,along with another that would speed up the death penalty. Then theres the bill the chamber passed to ban Shariah,or Islamic law,and other foreign laws from being applied in state courts, though theres no evidence judges have used foreign law against Floridians. e dont need to change our principles; we do need to communicate that there is compassionate reason for some of the things that we do and why we hold to those principles,Rep. Dennis Baxley,R-Ocala,said. Principles are the foundation upon which you build, and thats a pragmatic choice to have the right foundation in place. Thats what value issues are all about. Democrats say the focus on conservative social issues in the House distracts from more serious and immediate issues facing the state,such as the economy and unemployment. The challenge back to our Republican colleagues is to say,Look,what does this do to advance the dialogue of making Florida better?said Rep. Alan Williams. I dont think it does a whole lot. Right now we should be focused on how do we come out of this recession as a stronger,better Florida. Williams,D-Tallahassee, said the conservative agenda doesnt reflect the states moderate makeup or the message voters sent by backing Obama in the past two elections. I understand that they feel that they have to stick to their conservative core values,but Florida is a very moderate state,Williams said. We miss the mark when we focus on bills like speeding up the death penalty,when we focus on a lot of the abortion issues,when we dont expand Medicaid. House Democrats did join Republicans on one abortion bill sent to the Senate. The measure (HB 1129ould require medical care for newborns surviving botched abortions. Fla.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Sara Canali recently participated in the Ms. Wheelchair Pageant att he Hilton Carillon Park Hotel in St. Petersburg. T here were nine contestants from all over the state of Florida in the pageant onA pril 5-6.It was based on the persons platform about d isability awareness. It was not a beauty pageant. This was the first time S ebrings Canali participated in the contest. She spoke about how important it is for c olleges,universities and programs for people with l earning disabilities to provide wheelchair accessible transportation. In her experiences with the local college, she is unable to participatei n field trips with the Art Club because the college only has regular vans and there is not a wheelchairaccessible van available to accommodate her. My grandparents can b ring me,but thats not being independent,Canali s aid. Highlands County is limited on transportation services for people with disabilities. Vans are available form edical appointments or other health needs but there are no services for people in wheelchairs who need to shop or work,let aloneo btain a higher education, according to Canali. I took a tour at College Living Experience School in Jacksonville,she said. They provide assistance for students with disabilities for academics and living skills. They dont have wheelchair accessible vans either. They take students to the college,grocery shopping and social outings. They also teach students how to take public transportation. Staffa re available to assist with trips to doctors. T he college focuses primarily on individuals with learning disabilities and nott hose with physical disabilities. They do assist people w ith cerebral palsy. Canali has cerebral palsy and a processing disorder,b ut she needs to use a wheelchair in order to get around. That program should m eet all needs including physical disabilities,not just f ocus on learning disabilities,Canali said. During the contest on April 5,Canali met Mayra Paulina Reyes,Ms.W heelchair of 2011,for the first time in person. They has been friends through email. e have a lot in common. Mayra read my article when I got my GED in 2010,a nd shes also going for her GED and has cerebral palsy. S he tried to help me by giving me confidence to give my speech. So were helping each other,Canali said. The next day,Canali and t he other contestants met with a coach to practice giving their speeches. They also heard speakers on womens health,health fitness,dis-a bility policies and judging sessions. I knew one of the judges that I havent seen in 10 years. She is my friend Robyn,who used to work at Shriners when I was a patient there. She is one of my role models. She has CP, graduated with a BA in journalism,does paralympics and is an adaptive sports coach at a local YMCA. I met some people who have graduated from college witha degree and they are inspiring as well,Canali stated. C amile Araujo was crowned Ms. Wheelchair 2013. She served 11 yearsf or the Miami-Dade Police Department. She was in a c ar accident that left her paralyzed from the chest down. Even though I didnt win, I had a good time,a great learning experience and met many inspiring people. I h ope to attend Ms. Wheelchair Pageant next y ear,Canali said. Canali was sponsored at the contest by Central Barber Styling,Special STARS of Highlands Countya nd Charla Ellerker, Disabilities Specialist counselor of South Florida State College. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, April 28, 2013Page A3 MARTIAL ARTS (pp only summer camp; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 3 3 5 5 1 1 SAS ROOFING 7 HOME IMPROVEMENT; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; main A; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 5 5 4 4 9 9 Canali uses pageant to discuss problems in transportation for disabled Courtesy photo Sara Canali, of Sebring, (third from the left) poseswith other contestants who participated in the Ms. Wheelchair Pageant in St. Petersburgon April 6.

USPCA to hold regional certification t rials in Highlands By JOSH LEDERMAN Associated PressWASHINGTON President Barack Obama says the congressional fix for widespread flight delays is an irresponsible way to govern, but hes prepared to sign the legislation that lawmakers fast-tracked. He says the bipartisan bill to end furloughs of air traffic controllers is a Band-Aid solution rather than a lasting answer to this years $85 billion in across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester. The cuts have affected all federal agencies,and flight delays last week left thousands of travelers frustrated and furious and Congress feeling pressured to respond. Republicans claimed victory when the sequester first took effect,and now theve decided it was a bad idea all along,Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address,aired Saturday. He singled out the GOP even though the bill passed with overwhelming Democratic support in both the House and Senate. The president scolded lawmakers for helping the Federal Aviation Administration while doing nothing to replace other cuts that he said harm federal employees,unemployed workers and preschoolers in Head Start. Rushed through Congress with remarkable speed,the bill marked a shift for Democrats who had hoped the impact of the cuts would increase pressure on Republicans to reverse the broad cuts. There are some in the Obama administration who thought inflicting pain on the public would give the president more leverage to avoid making necessary spending cuts,and to impose more tax hikes on the American people,said Rep. Bill Shuster of Pennsylvania in the Republican address. Associated PressMIAMI Federal wildlife officials are reviewing a South Florida butterfly survey that concluded that five rare species have vanished. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service hired entomologist Marc Minno to perform the survey. In reports filed late last year, Minno concluded that the Zestos skipper,the rockland Mesks skipper,the Zarucco duskywing,the nickerbean blue and the Bahamian swallowtail apparently had disappeared for good in Florida.

I have written at all hourso f the day, under all kinds of circumstances, in different places. Try that with your boss. This flexibility has a d ownside, however. Its easy to get up and think, I have all day to write. It hen spend the day doing all kinds of important things such as spendingt ime on Facebook or playing word games. Later in t he day, I look back and smack my forehead. Why didnt I get anythingd one? In an effort to help me o ut, Don sat me down and together we put together a schedule for me to follow. It has time for writing, time for housework, timet o (ugh other things. We even p lugged play time and reading into the schedule, so that I wouldnt have toq uit my iPod games cold turkey. I ve tried to follow the schedule, but I keep running into problems. One is I m supposed to be writing early in the morning several days a week, but Im finding myself listening to Barry Foster on AM 730a nd struggling to get my brain started. Theoretically I could listen to Barry and write at the same time, but I havent quite pulled it offy et. And the time we set a side for exercise? I made it once since we put thes chedule in place. I admit to feeling slightly guilty about that. But it seems when the schedule gets knocked off-kilter ands omething has to be pitched, exercise gets picked. I recently discovered another flaw in the sched-u le. While we tried to include every possible thing that I can do or should be doing, we left out something pretty important. We did not schedule any naptime for me. T o understand my affinity for naps, you have to understand that I am a night person forced to live in a world run by day peo-p le. This means that Id like to stay up late and sleep in. While I have thes taying up late part down, life keeps interfering with my desire to sleep in. S o around the middle of the afternoon Im often s tarting to flag. This is where the strong desire to drop everything and take as nooze is the strongest. If I dont at least lay down for a bit then I finish out the day feeling somewhat cranky. I am not a very fun person to be around when Im cranky. I dont know why people are down on midday naps f or adults. We encourage kids to take naps, so why do we have to stop theh abit when were adults? A siesta in the middle of the d ay has the potential to reenergize one without resorting to caffeine. w ww.webmd.com has an article that talks about naps and their benefits to ones creativity and energy levels. T ake a stand with me for naps. Or better yet, lay down. Even a short 15to 20-minute snooze will recharge your bodys bat-t eries. Lets encourage employers throughout the c ountry to accommodate the afternoon nap! T heres more that can be said about this subject, but its getting to the middle of the afternoon. I hear a nap calling me. And I ama nswering the call. If only exercise had a louder voice. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

They are true Muslims to the core in that they exemplify the mind of the founder of Islam, Muhammad. Anythingl ess would be forsaking true Islam. Moderates and peace-loving Muslims are offensive to their own religion.. The Islam religion has never been from its beginning with Muhammad to this day peace loving. Read the Quran and history! Political correctness will be another nail in the coffin of the United States of America. Tolerance is sure death, destruction and defeat. Wake up America. Frank Parker SebringGun owners will be ready for 2014Editor: The recent U.S. Senate vote on anti-second amendment gun control legislation left little doubt which side the various Senators were on. The vote of John McCain w as interesting. He sided with the gun control crowd. J ohn McCain just showed the anti-gun colors that many Republicans suspected he had back in 2008. What about the GOPPresidentialc andidate in 2012, Mitt Romney? The same Mitt Romney who passed antisecond amendment legislation as governor ofM assachusetts. Neither candidate was considered a stalwart defender of gun rights by many politically active gun owners. Both McCain and Romney were considered the lesser evil compared to Obama by gun rights groups, but gun owners didnt see it. In 2012 many gun owners in swing states like Florida and Ohio saw little difference between Obama and Romney on guns so they voted based on other issues. The loss of these and other pro-gun swing states cost Romney the election. Lawabiding gun owners will, however, be galvanized in the next two elections by the attacks on them and their rights by the elitist left. The past elections should be a cautionary tale for both parties. For the democrats, as long as you shut up about g uns like Obama did during his first term, you can win e lections. When you attack second amendment rights like in 1994 you lose ... badly. For the Republicans, running candidates who pre-t end to be pro-gun candidates results in lost elections. How many times do voters have to remind both partiest hat not supporting the Second Amendment will cost them? Millions of gun owners refuse to be blamed by the media and politicians for the actions of criminals. These same gun owners are passionate about their inalienable rights and in many cases are single issue voters. The gun issue. Gun owners will be ready for the 2014 elections because punishing anti-gun politicians at the polls is almost as much fun as a day at the range. Every law-abiding citizen should try both. It will put a smile on your face, I guarantee it. Dana B. Orr Avon ParkPolitically correct cowards in WashingtonEditor: I t is past time for the Politically Corrects in W ashington to tell America the truth about the terrorists. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslims. To hear all the PCsi n Washington speak they want us to believe that they must be Christians, Jews, Tea Party people, anyone but a Muslim. T housands of Americans have died in Iraq, Afghanistan and in America at the hands of terrorists. We should remember forever the photo of the Boston bomber walking past the crowd at the finish line moments before the explosion that killed and injured innocent Americans. The PCs in Washington do not want you to ask who did this, just move along and dont ask any questions about terrorists. It only takes one terrorists to kill and injure hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent Americans. If there are any honest speaking politicans in Washington they would be telling Americans the truth about who the terrorists are and not try to hide behind the PC banner of we must not offend a class of people. Some of our schools of higher learning are teaching that the Jews and Americans are the enemy, not the terrorists that continue to kill and injure innocent Americans. Are we to feel safe at any major event knowing that terrorists may be there with the intent to kill innocent Americans. It is time to stand up to the PC politicans in Washington and if they do not speak out with the truth about who the enemy is that wants to kill all Americans, vote them out of office as they are not there to protect Americans but to hide behind their PC desk.

On April 10, t he State of Florida executed a man held on death row for 32 years.Between 1980 when he was convicted of kidnappinga nd murdering 10-year-old Eliza Nelson and 1990 he w as re-sentenced three times. It still took another 23 years. This is not a discussion a bout the death penalty. The death penalty is a fact of law, w hether you approve of it or not. n that context we feel a critical issue is the amount of time that passes between sentence and execution. O nce jury or judge have made a decision as to an indiv iduals guilt or innocence, and a reasonable appeals process settles all the legali ssues concerning evidence, witnesses and competent c ounsel, it should not take decades to follow through on the death penalty. For examp le, one death row inmate has been awaiting execution since he was sentenced in 1974 39 years. According to the Florida D epartment of Corrections website, currently there are 405 individuals on death row 249 white men and 148 black men. Thirteen are classified as other. There are f ive women on Floridas death row. Since 1979, when the U.S. Supreme reinstituted the states right to execute con-v icted criminals, Florida has put 74 people to death. On average, those who are s entenced to death row live 13.22 years before facing the executioner. T en years just too much wasted time. W e do not favor a fast track into the execution chamber it is a sin for thes tate to kill an innocent man or woman. We strongly feel t he state must prove guilt, as opposed to a suspect proving his or her innocence. Once a suspect is proven guilty, however, and had anh onest appeal process to be sure the trial was fair, we can s ee no reason to drag things out for years. It is cruel to the families of v ictims, who need justice in order to find some peace. It is u nfair to society because any possible lesson is lost over the long years of delay. It is u nfairest of all to the victims, who by the time their killer is executed often have faded from the publics eye. Why should convicted murderersb ecome better known than the people they kill? Justice must come quickly if it is to truly act as a deterrent. Rotting on death row a waste of space and time

The event was held in Orlando and drew competitors from law enforce-m ent agencies across the state. S gt. Dave Stewart finished sixth in the individual competition in a field of 32 com-p etitors. The event spanned two d ays and included eight individual events. Each event was designed to test the snipers fitness level,speed, endurance,marksmanship and problem solving ability. The snipers were required to maneuver through obstaclesw hile carrying their equipment and fire on targets ranging from 15 to 500 yards away. Each target was different in size and appearance s ome as large as a human, some as small as a wooden dowel. The different events were set up to mimic scenarios the sniper might have to dealw ith in an actual SWAT incident.

C M Y K have to be approved by the board and I have not presented any of this to them yet, she cautioned. A graduate of Avon Park High School,Trinder attended Florida State University, worked for a time at Walt Disney World then went into the local financial world both at SunTrust and Highlands Independent banks. Most recently,she has been doing information technology consulting,which leads to the direction she would like to take the chamber. I think we could make better use of Internet and technology even automation,she said. In addition to using the Internet for marketing, Trinder said plans are under way to work more closely with her fellow chamber executives in Sebring and Lake Placid. Plans are being formulated to hold additional tri-chamber events and for Trinder to get together with Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Steve Nyhan and Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Eileen May on a more regular basis to see how they can maximize their efforts by working together. Because most of the big Avon Park chamber events have already taken place, Trinder said it would give the organization time to implement and perfect programs before the season picks up again in the fall. The one large event yet to be taken care of is the chambers annual banquet that will be in June. Although the serving as the director for the chamber and working for a board is a bit different from her past jobs,Trinder said she is looking forward to it. I think this is going to be good. I love a challenge,she said. Reportedly,things have started moving forward,with more volunteers already working at the chamber offices. Trinder said more things will be nailed down following the next meeting of the chamber board.

I wasnt going to doi t,Marshall said. After completing his first 5 K run on day one of the Challenge,Marshall discovered a confidence and drivei n himself that hadnt ever emerged before. Marshall said completing the run felt g ood and he was surprised at his completion time of 37.9 m inutes. Marshall began his journey on the Biggest Loser Challenge at 227 pounds with approximately 27 per-c ent body fat. Marshall is a type 1 diabetic,diagnosed when he was 13. At the time Marshall started his challenge,his metabolic age was 44 and he was using more than 100 units of insulin ad ay. When I saw my metaboli c age I just thought Wow. Im only 29,Marshall said. The ah-ha moment put Marshall in an even higher gear,giving him the motiva-t ion he needed to go at the challenge with everything he had. VanFleet created a diverse series of workouts that wereb oth fun and physically challenging for the 15 participants. Oh,she kept it interesting. There was a broad range of activities. We didnt ever know what we were getting into. She just told us where t o meet up and what to wear,Marshall said. There was never a dull moment. Marshall admits balancing a tough training regimen, early workout hours and a full-time job was a difficultt ask,but he managed to stick with it,despite the fact that t he first four weeks of the challenge were really brutal. His transformation was a jaw-dropper for sure,V anFleet said. The percentage of weight loss was great. The second-place winner wasnt even really close to what he lost. He is theB iggest Loser poster boy. The last challenge for the 13-week project was a second 5K run,which Marshall had no problem finishing. His new time was 24.4 minutes. Marshall lost a total of 47 p ounds over the course of t he Biggest Loser Challenge. His current metabolic age is now 19 years old. Getting healthy for m yself has becoming addicting. Im very active now. If you want to change,you have to try to want to changea nd you have to stay dedicated. If you dont,its just notg oing to work. You cant g ive up. I didnt know doing s omething just for myself, j ust to better myself,would inspire so many other people,but Im glad it has, Marshall said. Marshall received a $250 check,a one-year family membership to the YMCA,a gift basket full of Everglades Seasoning goodies,personal training sessions with V anFleet and many other items for his accomplishment. Marshall has also beenf eatured on the NBC Biggest L oser website, www.nbc.com/the-biggestloser/. The next Biggest Loser Challenge will take place later in the year. VanFleet is launching a Biggest Loser Boot Camp,which will last only six weeks rather than 13,on May 28.

Continued from page A1 Many changes seen in area, business B y BEN FOX Associated PressABOARD THE HIGH SPEED VESSEL SWIFT Drug smugglers who race across the Caribbeani n speedboats will typically jettison their cargo when spotted by surveillance aircraft,hoping any chance of prosecuting them will van-i sh with the drugs sinking to the bottom of the sea. That may be a less winning tactic in the future. The U.S. Navy on Friday began testing two new aeri-a l tools,borrowed from the battlefields of Afghanistan a nd Iraq,that officials say will make it easier to detect,track and videotaped rug smugglers in action. One of the devices on d isplay aboard the High Speed Vessel Swift is a large,white balloon-like craft known as an aerostat, which is tethered up to2 ,000 feet (600 meters above the ships stern. The o ther tool on board for tests in the Florida Straits is a type of drone that can bel aunched by hand from the deck. T ogether,they expand the ability of Navy and Coast Guard personnel tos ee whats beyond their horizon,according to officials from both military b ranches and the contractors hoping to sell the d evices to the U.S. government. The devices should allow authorities to detect and monitor suspected drugs hipments from afar for longer sustained periods, giving them a better chance of stopping the smugglers. They also should allow them to make continuous v ideotapes that can be used in prosecutions. Being able to see them and watch what they are doing even before we gett here is going to give us an edge,said Chief Chris Sinclair,assistant officer in charge of a law enforcement detachment on boardt he Swift,a private vessel leased to the Navy that is about to begin a monthlong deployment to the southwestern Caribbean,tracking the busy smugglingr outes off Colombia and Honduras. C rews practiced launching and operating both systems before a small contin-g ent of news media on board the Swift,managing t o bring back video of vessels participating in a mock surveillance mission as well as radar and video images of the fishing char-t ers and sailboats that dot the choppy seas separating C uba from the U.S. mainland. Both the aerostat and the d rone have been used widely by the U.S. government f or overseas actions,but Harris and others aboard the Swift said neither hasb een used before by the Navy to conduct counterdrug operations. U nmanned aerial devices,however,are not n ew to the drug fight.

Its not clear,however,if t he tuition hike for college and university students will take effect because Gov. Rick Scott has said he would oppose any attempts to raise tuition. B ut budget negotiators went ahead Friday night and a greed to the tuition hike as part of the final negotiations over a $74 billion proposedb udget. Legislators have until Tuesday to wrap up their w ork in order to end the session by May 3. Sen. Joe Negron,R-Stuart and Senate budget chief, defended the proposed hikea s a modest increase. He also pointed out that in the final g o-round of negotiations, legislators agreed to put more money into financial aid pro-g rams. e have made a number o f wise investments in making sure students in Florida can attend college,Negrons aid. Florida college students do pay among some of the lowe st tuition rates in the nation. But Scott earlier this week r epeated his opposition to any tuition hikes this year. Florida families cant afford it,said Scott,a Republican who faces re-e lection next year. ...Every time they raise tuition,which they have done for five straight years,it impacts the poorest families in the state. By CHARLES BABINGTON A ssociated PressW ASHINGTON Some feisty Republicans are chall enging a claim widely held among GOP leaders that the party must support more liberal immigration laws if its to be more competitive inp residential elections. These doubters say the Republican establishment has the political calculation backward. Immigration reform,they say,will mean millions of new D emocratic-leaning voters by granting citizenship to l arge numbers of Hispanic immigrants now living illegally in the United States. The argument is dividing the party as it tries to reposi-t ion itself after losing the popular vote in five of the past six presidential elections. It also could endanger President Barack Obamas bid for a legacy-building rewrite of the nations probl ematic immigration laws. Many conservatives are s cared to deaththat the Republican Party is committing suicide,that were going to end up legalizing 9 million automatic Democratv oters,radio host Rush Limbaugh recently told Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.a leader of the bipartisan team pushing an immigration overhaul. Strategists in both parties s ay several factors,including income levels,would m ake many,and probably most,newly enfranchised immigrants pro-Democratic, at least for a time. Every political movem ent,conservatism included,depends on the ability to convince people that do not agree with you now to agree with you in the future, Rubio told Limbaugh. Politically,Republicans f ace two bad options. They can try to improve r elations with existing Latino voters by backing a plan that seems likely to add many Democratic-leaning voters in the years ahead. Ort hey can stick with a status quo in which their presidential nominees are losing badly among the electorates fastest-growing segment. Florida lawmakers s ign off on college tuition hikes Some say immigration bill is bad deal for GOP

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN New-Sun correspondent LAKE GIBSON The moon shone brightly over center field in Lake Gibson Thursday night during the last few innings of the District 9-6Achampionship game where Sebring took on Winter Haven. Unfortunately, as Creedence Clearwater Revival would have put it, there was a Bad Moon Rising for the Streaks as they were unable to come back from a 12-1 deficit, thus granting the Blue Devils the tournament title. If Sebring were going to pick a game to have a few hiccups, this would be the one to do it. After Tuesday nights win against Kathleen, the Blue Streaks automatically clinched a spot in the Regional quarterfinals no matter the outcome of the championship. The Streaks were able to put some early pressure on Winter Haven as Wyatt Johnson and Cullen Lovett found their way to third and second base in the top of the first, yet no runs would be scored as the third out was made. In the next innings, Winter Haven kept the bats alive and managed to bring the threat of a 10-run mercy rule. Sebring proved to still have a little fight left in them as they managed to load the bases in the top of the third, but they were unable to capitalize on the opportunity. In the top of the fourth, Ty Little started the inning witha stand-up double and was later brought home by a sacrifice fly from Brad Doty. Even with the lifted spirit of the Streaks, this was the final run scored, offering one run to Winter Havens 12 for the night. I have got to give Winter Haven credit, they are a good team and they swung the bats tonight, said Sebring head coach Buck Rapp. Seemed like everything we threw up there, ball or strike, they hit it somewhere. Fighting the powerhouse Blue Devil offense were pitchers CJ Payne and Matthew Portis. e didnt play excellent defense behind our pitchers but we still have a chance to play next Wednesday, added Rapp. That is where you have got to put it behind you. Im still proud of the guys, they fought. e were a little bit shorthanded going into it with injuries, but each guy stepped up in their own way and hopefully we can do that again next Wednesday and scratch out a win. Sebring will now take the weekend to clear their minds before coming back Monday to prepare for the journey to New Port Richey where they will take on Mitchell. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comBABSON PARK It was seven years in the making, with karma perhaps playing a role as Lake Placid claimed the District 10-4AT ournament Title with T hursdays crushing, 11-0 defeat of DeSoto. It was, after all, on the Webber International University baseball field, perched along the shores of Crooked Lake, that head coach Dan Coomes Dragons h ad last won a district championship, back in 2006. When they said they were moving the games here, it felt pretty good, Coomes said afterward. It was a nice feeling knowing that last time we played here, we had won. The progress of the season matchups between the two squads also gave an indication that this latest contest would be a good one. I n the seasons early days, the Bulldogs had handled Lake Placid 7-2, but the Dragons greatly closed theg ap in their most recent contest, falling just short in a 4-3 l oss. And with Heath Harris and D onovan Day locking horns on the mound, it seemed a l ow-scoring contest would be in order, which the first inning indicated. Lake Placid went down in order in the top of the opening frame, and save for an infield single for DeSoto, their half of the inning went by quietly. But in the second, the Dragons went on the attack. Laine Daum lead it off with a solid single to center before Tyler Carr was hit by a pitch. Jacob Cram followed with an RBI single to center, moving Carr to third, and Rufino Gutierrez brought car in witha sharp single to right. With runners on first and second, Harris put down a bunt to move them both into scoring position. The bunt trickled out to the right of home plate, and a hustling Harris caused a rushed throw to first, which got away, allowing Cram to come in and put runners on second and third with still nobody out. Day did retire the next batter for that first out, but Ricky Miller followed with a single to score a run. One out later, Morgan Lott was hit by a pitch to load the bases and Daum came through with a single up the middle to bring home two. Abattered Day finally ended the inning, but the Bulldogs were suddenly looking up at a 6-0 deficit, and Days day was done. Harris, meanwhile was just settling into what would be a masterful performance. Oh, he did hit a batter after striking out the lead-off hitter in the bottom of the second. But DeSoto helped him out a bit when the next batter struck out as well. The bounced curve ball that induced the swinging third strike got away, but both the Bulldog batter and runner, perhaps caught up in the tension of having this big lead to overcome in the biggest game of the season, took off running. In the moment they forgot the rule that, with first base occupied and less than two out, a dropped third strike is merely a strikeout, with the batter not being able to advance. The runner can, though by now a moment of confusion set in and the Bulldog runner found himself in no-mans land and was soon tagged out to end the inning on a bizarre dropped third strike double play.

Associated PressDAVIE Eager to force more turnovers, the Miami Dolphins drafted two cornerbacks Friday with a knack for interceptions. Miami added Jamar Taylor of Boise State in the second round, then traded up to select Will Davis of Utah State in the third round. Taylor made four interceptions last year and Davis had five, while the Dolphins totaled only 10 to tie for fourth-worst in the NFL. Both Will and Jamar have very good ball skills, general manager Jeff Ireland said. Taylor is very physical. He can go up and get it, or he can knock it out. Will is very good at getting the ball out too. I think theyre both going to be playmakers. Adearth of takeaways contributed to the Dolphins7-9 record, and theyve devoted three of their four picks so far to changing that. Pass rusher Dion Jordan of Oregon was their firstround choice Thursday. On the second day of the draft, Miami also added guard-tackle Dallas Thomas of Tennessee and dealt away receiver Davone Bess. The Dolphins made three trades involving draft picks and now have five in the final four rounds Saturday. Bess is under contract for $3.4 million this year, and became expendable when the Dolphins acquired free agent receivers Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson. e did some things in the offseason that made us feel better about the position, Ireland said. We feel very good about the group we have. While tackle was considered the Dolphinsmost pressing need, their early focus was on defense. Taylor, the 54th overall selection, was a three-year starter at Boise State, and his 40-yard dash time of 4.39 was among the fastest at the NFLScouting Combine. As the third round wound down, Ireland decided one rookie cornerback wasnt enough. He traded with Green Bay to acquire the 93rd overall pick and took Davis, a two-year starter at Utah State. Dolphins take CBs in 2nd, 3rd round of NFL draft See MIAMI, Page B3 MCTphoto The Dolphins were defensive minded in the early going of the 2013 Draft, selecting Dion Jordan, defensive end from Oregon, in the first round and taking cornerbacks in both the second and third rounds.

Taylor and Davis will compete for a starting job after the departure of Sean Smith to the Kansas City Chiefs via free agency. Im just going to try to contribute the best way I can, Taylor said. Im happy to be a Dolphins, and man, I cant even explain it right now Davis, who broke up 17 passes last season, said the Dolphins are correct that he has a nose for the ball. I think thats one thing Ive got above a lot of people, Davis said. I know at the combine I showed it. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Thomas was the 77th overall selection. He started at left tackle for two seasons with Tennessee but switched to guard as a senior, and he said hes flexible regarding his position. I can do it all, he said. I can play left or right. Its just up to coach. Im just happy I got picked. Miami is in the market to replace Pro Bowl left tackle Jake Long, who departed to the St. Louis Rams via free agency. But Ireland and coach Joe Philbin were coy about their plans for Thomas. I love the versatility Ireland said. We see a big guy who can pull and move his feet and play guard and tackle on the left side. Thats pretty unique. Miami moved up nine spots to No. 3 overall to draft Jordan, trading the 42nd overall pick to the Raiders. Oakland coincidentally used that pick on a tackle Florida States Menelik Watson. If the Dolphins had kept the No. 12 overall pick, a team official said, they would have taken Notre Dame tight end Tyler Eifert. As part of the Bess trade, Miami and Cleveland swapped picks. The Dolphins acquired the Brownsfourth-round choice (104th overall fifth-round choice (164th overall) and gave up their fourth-round choice (111th overall) and seventh-round choice (217th Continued from B1 Miami addresses defensive woes By FRED GOODALL Associated PressTAMPA If Josh Freeman isnt Tampa Bays long-term solution at quarterback, the Buccaneers are hoping theyve found an alternative. The team selected North Carolina States Mike Glennon in the third round of the NFLdraft Friday night, saying he was too g ood a fit for their offense to ignore even though Freeman became the franchises first 4,000-yard passer while also setting a club record by throwing for 27 touchdowns last season. General manager Mark Dominik and coach Greg Schiano reiterated Freeman is the starter, while also noting Glennon was highly productive in college has the size 6-foot-6, 220 pounds and arm strength they like in a quarterback. If something happens to Josh Freeman, we want to be able to keep the season rolling, Dominik said. With Freeman entering the final year of the contract he signed as the 17th pick of the 2009 draft, the Bucs eventually will have tom ake a decision on whether to give him a new deal. The 25-year-old led the team to 10 wins and narrowl y missed the playoffs in his second full season as a s tarter in 2010, however his c areer has been marked by inconsistency. Schiano has said hed like to increase competition at every position on the team, including quarterback. Veteran Dan Orlovsky currently in Freemans backup, and the hope is Glennon will be able to learn the system and develop without having the pressure that comes with being a high draft pick expected to come in and start right away. Glennon, who played behind Russell Wilson for three years at North Carolina State, completed over 58 percent of his passes for 4,031 yards, 31 touchdowns and 17 interceptions for the Wolfpack as a senior. He was the third quarterback selected in the draft behind first-rounder E.J. Manuel and second-rounder Geno Smith. It comes as somewhat of a surprise, but Im excited to go down there and play football, Glennon said, adding he hadnt had much contact with Tampa Bay since the NFLcombine. Schiano recruited Glennon coming out of high school when the coach was at Rutgers and the quarterback was the state of Virginias player of the year,so theyve been familiar with each other for years. Wilson, who transferred to Wisconsin, led the Seattle S eahawks to the playoffs as a rookie in 2012. Glennon plans to speak with him about what Wilson did to make a successful transition to the NFL. I think theres a lot of talent in this class, Glennon said of this years crop of quarterback prospects, which was not highly rated by draft experts. Hopefully, 10 years from now, well look back said say this class wasa little under-rated. The selection of Glennon with the 73rd overall pick came after the Bucs used their second-round pick to seek more help on defense. When Johnthan Banks learned Tampa Bay had acquired the top cornerback in football in the days lead-i ng up to the draft, he figured there was no way hed wind up being selected by the Bucs. M uch to the former Mississippi State stars d elight, hes going to get a c hance to learn from Darrell Revis as part of the Bucs effort to rebuild the worst pass defense in the league. s a dream come true, 2012 Jim Thorpe Award winner said by telephone after becoming the 11th pick of the second round, No. 43 overall. I cant wait to get there. The Bucs did not have a pick in Thursdays opening round after trading the 13th overall pick to the New York Jets in exchange for Revis, a three-time All-Pro whos the centerpiece of what Dominik and Schiano are doing to shore up a secondary that came within 38 yards of setting a NFL record for passing yards allowed last season. In addition to obtaining Revis and drafting Banks, who had 16 career interceptions in college, the Bucs added All-Pro safety Dashon Goldson to their defensive backfield through free agency in March. eve improved our size, physicality and ball skills, Dominik said of the collective moves this offseason. The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Banks was a captain at Mississippi State, where he tied the school record for interceptions and routinely was assigned to cover opponentsNo. 1 receiver. He was the guy who made their defense go, period, Schiano said. Hes a strong, rangy guy. ... Were happy to have him. Despite not having a firstround pick for the first time in 10 years, Dominik entered Friday night feeling the Bucs had done more to help the team by acquiring Revis than they could ever have hoped to by holding onto the 13th pick of the first round and using it try to upgrade a defense that contributed to a late-season collapse in 2012. The Bucs lost five of six down the stretch to finish 79. Revis is a proven star whos generally regarded as the games best player at his position. The Bucs signed him to a new six-year, $96 million contract and are counting on the seventh-year pro to be a mentor for Banks, who despite winning the Thorpe Award as the nations top defensive back wasnt the first player from his college secondary selected in the draft. Mississippi State cornerback Darius Slay was taken earlier in the second round, No. 36 overall, by the Detroit Lions. But Banks wasnt complaining. Tampa Bay had been one of his preferred destinations since spending time with members of coaching staff a nd scouting departments at the Senior Bowl in January. s a blessing I got drafted. There are a lot of kids still sitting home waiting and hoping to be p icked, the 23-year-old native of Maben, Miss., said. God works in mysterious ways. ... Revis is the best and I get a chance to play next to him. Im going to try to learn everything I can from him, Banks added. I play with passion. I give it everything Ive got. ... Thats what Im coming there to do. Bucs select CB Johnthan Banks in second round By BARRYWILNER Associated PressNEWYORK Manti Teo and Geno Smith provided the sizzle previously missing from the NFLdraft. Teo is headed to San Diego, Smith is a Jet, and Radio City Music Hall shook with the kind of noise usually heard in stadiums when they were selected. The theater rocked with two picks within minutes ofe ach other Friday night. T eo, the Notre Dame AllAmerica linebacker, was chosen sixth in the second round by the Chargers, drawing a loud roar from the fans. One spot later, the Jets took the West Virginia quarterback, drawing a raucous r eaction of cheers and boos. The big names had taken over from the bulk and beef of opening night, when 18 linemen went in the first round. Teo, who led the Fighting Irish to the national championship game, was projected as a first-rounder last year. But his poor performance in a rout at the hands of Alabama, some slow 40-yardd ash times, and a tabloidready hoax involving a fake girlfriend that became a national soap opera droppedh is stock. I did expect to go in the f irst round, Teo said. But things happened and all it did w as give me more motivation. W hen former Chargers defensive back Jim Hill was handed the card to make the announcement by Commissioner Roger Goodell, he was told, oure going to get a big cheer when you announce this pick. It was more a mix of surprise and recognition of the most talked-about player in the draft finally finding a landing spot at No. 38 overall. The Chargers traded up with Arizona to grab Teo, the Heisman Trophy runnerup. Teo ran a 4.82-second 40yard dash at the NFLcombine, slow for a linebacker. He did better at Notre Dames pro day, but NFL teams already had plenty of football reasons to doubt his worthiness as a first-round pick. San Diego was willing to gamble on him. e did a lot of work on Teo and Ive seen him for a number of years, first-year general manager Tom Telesco said. He loves football. Hes passionate about it. He loves to practice. He loves to play Two officials, each with a different team, said their clubs passed on Teo in the first round partly because of his off-field issues. The men, speaking on condition of anonymity because team draft strategy is confidential, said the decision was not just because of a disappointing combine performance or the linebackers poor performance in the national title game. Teo was the third linebacker chosen in this draft. s a perfect scenario. My parents can come and watch, I can go home, its San Diego, said Teo, a native of Hawaii. Were all excited. I cant be any happier With the very next pick, the Jets sent their QB situation spiraling into further chaos. They already have Mark Sanchez, who struggled last season but was brought back in great part because of a prohibitive contract. They still have Tim Tebow, who almost certainly soon will be cut. They signed David Garrard, who hasnt played in the NFLsince 2010. And now there is Smith, who waited futilely throughout the first round, returned to the theater Friday and wasr ewarded. s extremely relieving. I withstood the test of time, he said. It felt like forever in t here. If Smith thought that was tough, wait until he enters the c auldron overseen by Jets coach Rex Ryan, where every m ove by every QB on the roster is tabloid-Internet fodd er for days. Im a competitor and Im going to accept my role on the team, whatever is handed to me, Smith said, but my job is to compete day in and day out. Safety Johnathan Cyprien of Florida International was the first selection of the second round. Cyprien was a standout in the Sun Belt Conference and really solidified his stock with an excellent performance in the Senior Bowl. s got a passion for the game, coach Gus Bradley said. He is very animated. He just enjoys it. He loves to play the game. I think hes going to add to what we have here and the attitude that were looking for Arizona added some spice to the third round by selecting former LSU cornerback-kick returner Tyrann Mathieu. The Honey Badger was a 2011 Heisman Trophy finalist that LSU dismissed from the team last August for failing a drug test. He was arrested in late October after police said they found marijuana at Mathieus apartment. He impressed me so much in my office one on one, knowing at this point in time what he needs to do in h is life, Cardinals first-year coach Bruce Arians said. I was really taken aback a little bit. He knows what his problems are, he knows what he has done to himself, but he also knows that someone will give him a chance, that he knows what he needs to make sure he succeeds. Other notable secondround picks Friday wereT ennessee wide receiver J ustin Hunter by the Titans, who traded up with San Francisco; Stanford AllAmerica tight end Zach Ertz by Philadelphia; and North Carolinas Gio Bernard, the first running back chosen, by Cincinnati. A fter no running backs were selected in the first round, five were taken in the second. The number of linemen dropped to five. The presumed top-rated running back, Eddie Lacy of Alabama, went with the nextto-last selection of the round, to Green Bay. NCAArecord-setting RB Montee Ball of Wisconsinw as chosen by Denver. Washington, which traded it first-rounder last year to draft Robert Griffin III, wentf or defensive back David Amerson of North Carolina S tate at No. 51. New England, known for t rading early picks for a bunch of later selections, c hose linebacker Jamie Collins of Southern Mississippi at No. 52. Seattle, after trading down six spots with Baltimore, closed out the second round by taking running back Christine Michael of Texas A&M. Cleveland used its secondrounder, which would have been 39th overall, in last years supplemental draft to take wide receiver Josh Gordon of Baylor, who made 50 catches for the Browns in 2012. New Orleans was stripped of its second-round pick in the bounty scandal. The final pick of Day 2 was the Titansselection of Missouri linebacker Zaviar Gooden. Among those who didnt go were quarterbacks Matt Barkley of Southern California, Landry Jones of Oklahoma and Ryan Nassib of Syracuse; South Carolina RB Marcus Lattimore, who is recovering from a severe knee injury; and two starters from national champion Alabama, OLBarrett Jones and DTJesse Williams.

Miller reached and stole second before a swinging bunt, a high chopper to the pitcher, off Nathan Stanleys bat moved him to third. Lott then laced a double down the third-base line for an RBI and Daum reached on an error to put runners on the corners. Carr followed with a fly to d eep left center that brought Lott in and bump the lead up to 8-0. Harris retired the side in order in the bottom of the fourth, on three straight ground-outs, and the fifth, with a pop-out and two s trike-outs. And it was in the top of the sixth that Lake Placid put it away. With two out, Daum reached on an error and Carr singled on the infield. Cram then doubled to right-center, bringing both runners all the way around, a nd moving to third himself on the throw home. Gutierrez blooped a single to right to score Cram and the Bulldogs were down to their final three outs needing to score two or else an early ending on the mercy rule. It looked like they might make some noise as a humpback liner off the end of the bat dropped just at the outer edge of the infield behind second base for DeSotos first hit since the first inning. Afielding error followed and two were on with nobody out. But Harris caught the next b atter looking, got a pop-out to second baseman Miller and Carr snagged a grounder to short, raced to second and just beat the runner for a game-ending, championshipwinning force-out. I said before the season started that this team had the makings to be real good,c oach Coomes said. Its a great group of kids that likes to have fun, but they listen. For example, just two weeksa go we really started working on two-strike swings, cutting d own the swing and making contact, putting the ball in p lay. They listened, worked at it, and it really came t hrough for us tonight. And while the offense proved timely and tenacious, it was the dominance of Harris on the mound that stood out. Over six innings of work, the senior right hander threw just 61 pitches, hit one batter, surrendered just the two hits and struck out six. In fact, the hardest hit ball of him all night may well have been a deep fly-out to left leading off the first inning for DeSoto. My first inning is normally always my worst, Harris said. But after that firsti nning my command got better, and thats when everything started falling in my favor A nd when the Bulldog bats fell silent while the Dragons r oared to the District Championship the fifth c laimed by Lake Placid High School this year.

This day in Baseball History Get the paper delivered to you! NEWS-SUN-6155 By GREG BEACHAM A ssociated PressLOS ANGELES While the Los Angeles Lakers have been a jumble of injury, inconsistency and general weirdness throughout their tumultuous season, Tim Duncans San Antonio Spurs have spent yet another year as the model of NBA efficiency as they grind out wins with their usual dominance. Its not tough to guess which team has the other on the brink of playoff elimination particularly with Steve Nash watching in a suit and Kobe Bryant sitting in the training room. Duncan had 26 points and nine rebounds, Tony Parker added 20 points and seven assists, and the Spurs beat the Lakers 120-89 in Game 3 on Friday night, the worst home loss in Los Angeles lengthy postseason history. Alargely silent Staples Center watched San Antonio bully the Lakers to the precipice of first-round playoff elimination for the first time since 2007. The short-handed Lakers played without their top four guards due to injury, and the Spurs posted their biggest win of a series thoroughly controlled by coach Gregg Popovichs playofftested club. e respect these guys, and were not trying to give them any momentum whatsoever, Duncan said. We try to play the whole 48 (minutes the right way. We dont want to build their confidence, and they dont get their rhythm. The Lakers exceeded their 29-point home loss to Portland on May 22, 2000, the previous worst home defeat for the 16-time NBA champion franchise. Staples Centers lower bowl was half empty in the final minutes, an unfamiliar sight in an arena used to celebrating championships. San Antonio led throughout the final 44 minutes, going up by 18 in the first half and 25 early in the fourth quarter with its smooth, flexible offense. Tiago Splitter limped to the Spurslocker room late in the third quarter with a sprained left ankle, but not much else went poorly for San Antonio. I think were playing fairly well, Popovich said.

With Bryant and Nash joined by Jodie Meeks and Steve Blake on the injured list, the Lakers started Goudelock, signed from the NBAs D-League 12 days ago, and Morris, who barely played for long stretches of this season. The young guards didnt play poorly, but they werent enough to overcome Duncans dominance and Parkers continued move back to top form. The first half, we gave everything we had, and it obviously wasnt enough Los Angeles coach Mike DAntoni said.

C M Y K This pastM onday, April 22 was Earth Day. Many s chools had students doing educationalE arth Day projects. Various groups of environmentalist around the world took part in clean ups, reforestationp rojects, educational activities, plant give a ways, and a v ariety of other earth friendly events. Did you do anything spec ial to celebrate the planet this year? Y ou may be asking, whats all this fuss about Earth Day anyway? Well, it all started with a man by the name of Gaylord Nelson, a WisconsinS enator who was sick and tired of seeing our planet b eing abused. In 1969, one of the worst oil spills in history spewedh undreds of thousands of gallons of crude oil and gas i nto our beautiful oceans over an 800-mile area. The spill affected 35 miles o f coastline and killed more than 10,000 birds and countless other species of wildlife. T his, in combination with factorys smoke stacks bill owing out black contaminates into the atmosphere, pollutants gushing directly into lakes, streams and oceans, and cars that sportedV 8 engines pumping gallons of leaded gas, led him to take a stand and make a difference when it seemed that many Americans were oblivious to the damage that was being done to the Earth. I n 1969 Senator Nelson proposed a national teach-in o n the environment, which he hoped would send a message to Washington that the general public wanted to see politicians do somethinga bout the environmental challenges of the times. Activism was all the rage in the s, and the Senator took advantage of the cli-m ate of the times and gathered environmentally passionate students to help rally the public. This resulted in a national day of recognition regarding the environment. With public support behind it, Earth Day was born and has been celebrated for over four decades. But just in case you forgot to celebrate or maybe you didnt even know it was Earth Day, heres a little test you can take to help you be more knowledgeable about the planet you live on: To test your planet IQ here are some questions, whose answers may surprisey ou. How much solid waste does the United States produce in one year? A 50 million tons B. 150 million tons C. 250 million tons Answer: C 250 million tons, says the EPA. Thatsm ore than 1,000 times greater than one of the largest cruise ships in the world. How many pounds of t rash did the United States create, perperson, every d ay in 2010? A. 1.23 lbs. B. 3.46 lbs.C 4.43 lbs. Answer: C Less than 5 p ounds may not seem like much, but if you multiply it by 365 days, that's 1,617 pounds of garbage per person over a year. Which of the following t akes the longest time to break down? A. Plastic six-pack holderB Hard plastic container C. Disposable diaper A nswer: A Aplastic sixpack holder takes 450 years to disintegrate. Consider thei mpact of plastic water bottles, which take as long to biodegrade. The I nternational Bottled Water Association says that in the t op 10 global markets alone, people consumed more than 61 billion gallons of bottled water in 2011. W hich of the following accounts forthe greatest percentage of total waste in the United States? A. Paper C. Plastics D. GlassA nswer: A Paper is by far the No. 1 item Americans d ispose of. But it is also the most recycled material. About 70 percent of the Earth is covered withw ater. Only a relatively small amount of it is potentially potable fresh water. How much? A. 1 percent B. 2.5 percentC 7.3 percent Answer: B Only 2.5 percent of water on Earth is fresh water. And 70 percent of that is locked up in polari ce. Though fresh water would seem somewhat precious, Americans use a loto f it every day. On average, what is the approximate daily wateruse of each household? A. 25 gallons B. 50 gallonsC 300 gallons Answer: C 300 gallons. T hats what the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says. Meanwhile,m ore than 750 million people (more than 10 percent of t he worlds population) still dont have adequate access to drinking water, according to the United Nations. A lot of the wateris used by Americans on their l awns. What percentage, on average, is used foroutdoorpurposes? A About 10 percent B. About 30 percent C About 60 percent Answer: B About 30 percent of U.S. residentiala nd commercial water goes for outdoor use. And up to 50 percent of that evaporates i f you water in the heat of the day, the EPAestimates. It has been said that knowledge is power, so hopefully now you know a little bit more about whatsh appening on our earth. Its actually fairly easy to take a few simple steps and make small lifestyle changes that have a huge impact on our environment. Cut down on water usage b y turning water off when not in use; irrigate less, your l awn only needs so much water. Recycle and reuse. Youd be amazed how many things are thrown away that can ber eused in practical ways. Throw organic waste on your gardens; it decreases the amount of trash and helps plants grow. Look up some environmental prac-t ices; make it a family project. Take care of our planet, its the only one we have. The wealth of the nation is its air, water, soil, forests,m inerals, rivers, lakes, oceans, scenic beauty, wildlife habitats and biodiversity Thats the whole economy. These biological systems are the sustaining wealth of the world. G aylord Nelson 1995 Corine Burgess is and Environmental Specialist for the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department.

America loves its outlaws, and few are asa dmired and lionized as Willie Nelson. As the enduring American icons 80th birthday has approached, hes been honored with lifetime achievement awards, serenaded at specialp erformances and saluted by musicians from every genre of music. A nd Nelson has taken it all in with a bemused smile. s a nice thing to do for someo ne on their birthday and I appreciate it, Nelson said in a recent interv iew aboard his bus. Usually I like to forget my birthdays as much as possible. The hubbub is as much about celebrating Nelson as it has been cele-b rating with Nelson. The singer whose birthday is M onday or Tuesday Nelson says April 29, the state of Texas claims April 30 occupies a unique spacei n Americas cultural memory. A walking bag of contradictions, he w ears his hair long in braids and has a penchant for pot smoking, yet remains arguably conservative coun-t ry musics greatest songwriter. Hes accepted by left and right, black and white and is instantly recognizable to a majority of Americans. Like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash or F rank Sinatra, hes become a figurehead for a uniquely American way of thinking. He represents the outlaw and the maverick. If Elvis was all about the pelvis and the sexual revo-l ution, Nelson is American independence: the raised middle finger tossed with a twinkle in the eye. America is a bizarre place and Willie is our captain, said Jamey Johnson, Nelsons good friend and s ometimes opener. Willie in every way represents all the greatest things about America to me. Nelson didnt set out to be a folk hero, as Charles Kelley of LadyA ntebellum calls him. He explained he just came to Nashville wanting someone to buy his songs. That young man never imagined hed be on the road for more than 50 years. H is first real songwriting job paid $50 a week. He played and somet imes slept at Tootsies on Lower Broadway in Nashville, just a few miles but really a million miles away from Music Row. Nelson is home as he sits at the pleasantly cluttered kitchen table of h is bus, as much a part of Nelsons mythos as his braids and battered old g uitar. An invitation to join Nelson on the bus is coveted. Ive never smoked weed ever in my entire life, Lady As HillaryS cott joked. But if I got invited on the bus I might have to make a concession just because of purely what it is, what it represents. Music Accidental outlaw Willie Nelson celebrates 80th birthday this week MCT Jamie Johnson c ountry music starAmerica is a bizarre p lace and Willie i s our captain. By CHRIS TALBOTT A PMusic WriterNASHVILLE, Tenn. G eorge Jones, the peerless, hard-living country singer who recorded dozens of hits about good times and regrets and peaked with the heartbreaking classic HeS topped Loving Her Today, has died. He was 8 1. Jones died Friday at Vanderbilt UniversityM edical Center in Nashville, according to his p ublicist Kirt Webster. He was hospitalized with fever and irregular bloodp ressure, forcing him to postp one two shows. With one of the most goldenv oices of any genre, a c lenched, precise, profoundly expressive bari-t one, Jones had No. 1 songs in five separate d ecades, 1950s to 1990s. He was idolized n ot just by fellow country artists, but by Frank Sinatra, Pete Townshend, Elvis Costello, James Taylor and countless oth-e rs. If we all could sound like we wanted to, wed all sound like George Jones, Waylon Jennings once sang. In a career that lasted more than 50 years, Possum evolved fromy oung honky-tonker to elder statesman as he recorded more than 150 albums and became the champion and symbol of traditional country music, aw ell-lined link to his hero, Hank Williams. Jones surv ived long battles with alcoholism and drug addiction, brawls, accidents andc lose encounters with death, including bypass s urgery and a tour bus crash that he only avoided by deciding at the last moment tot ake a plane. His failure to a ppear for concerts left him with the nick-n ame No Show Jones, and he l ater recorded a song by that name and often o pened his shows by singing it. H is signature song was He Stopped L oving Her Today, a weeper among weepers about a man who carries his love for a woman to his grave. The 1980 ballad,w hich Jones was sure would never be a hit, often appears on surveys as the most popular country song of all time.

Taped to a wall at the entrance to the ConnecticutF ilm Center in Stamford is this greeting: Welcome (backValley Pine Valley, of course, is the mythical setting of AllM y Children, a daytime drama that ran on ABC for nearly 41 years until it was snuffed in 2011. But now, in one of those p lot twists so common to soap operas but so rare in the real world, All MyC hildren has been raised from the dead. Was its cancellation just a b ad dream, from which the show is now awakening? In a ny case, AMC will be back starting Monday with much of its august cast intact( including David Canary, Julia Barr, Jill Larson, Debbi M organ and Cady McClain, and perhaps even Susan Lucci eventually returning to the fold), along with shiny new actors to add more pizazz. B ut this time, AMC will not be on a broadcast network. It will be online. S o will One Life to Live, another venerable soap cut down by ABC after4 4 seasons. It, too, will spring back to life on M onday. (Welcome back to Llanview, everybody!) Returning fan favoritesi nclude Erika Slezak, Robert S. Woods, Robin Strasser a nd Hillary B. Smith, each of whom has logged decades on the show. Each serial will unveil four daily half-hours per week, plus a recap/behind-t he-scenes episode on Fridays, with 42 weeks of original programming prom-i sed for the first year. They will be available for streaming on computers ont he Hulu website. Subscribers to Hulu Plus can w atch on a variety of other devices. And the episodes will be available for pur-c hase on iTunes. This resurrection could r everse the doomsday plot that has plagued soaps for decades as their viewership withered and their numbers sank (there are only four left on the broadcast networks;t here were a dozen in 1991). And it is somehow fitting that TVs oldest genre, car-r ied over from radio, should now be making the transition to a 21st-century online plat-f orm complete with Agnes Nixon, who created both s hows, as a digital pioneer. Its a potentially restorative move that could prove theT Vmedium failed soaps, not the other way around. R eflecting a new age of viewing patterns and business strategy, AMC and OLTL will be the first offerings of The Online Network, an ad-supported outlet for first-run entertainment delivered online. What better way to start than with two shows that have been watched by fanatical fans for as much as 40 years? says Rich Frank, ap artner of Prospect Park studios, which owns The Online Network. He notes that even as ABC pronounced death for theset wo soaps, AMC was averaging 3.2 million viewers a day and OLTL had 3.8m illion viewers. He sets the threshold of success for his new venture at a very con-s ervative percentage of that broadcast audience. Being online is going to draw people in, predicts Jennifer Pepperman, OLTLe xecutive producer. You can click on it and watch it a ny time you like. Meanwhile, the drama will adapt to its new medium. We dont want to totally reinvent the wheel, but we want to make the wheel turn better and turn quicker Pepperman says. AMC executive producer Ginger Smith echoes Pepperman from her office a few steps away at the justmoved-in-looking, bustlingh eadquarters the two shows share. e want to keep the core, says Smith, who has risen on AMC from pro-d uction assistant in 1988. I still want escapism and romance, but were going toh ave stories that are sometimes a little darker and edgier than we did on ABC A s she is speaking, AMC is wrapping its first w eeks in front of the cameras. Then OLTL takes over the 27,000-square-foots oundstage to start production. In this back-and-forth a rrangement, each series will tape 210 episodes in the year ahead. Online Pair of beloved TV soaps revived on the Web starting Monday J ennifer Pepperman One Life to Liveexecutive producerBeing online is going to draw people in. You can click on it and watch it any time you like. We dont want to totally r einvent the wheel, but we want to make the wheel t urn better and turn quicker.

C M Y K B y TODD McCARTHY The Hollywood ReporterThe story of a sympathetic fugitive who forges a bond with two teenage boys near am ighty river down South, Mud is shot through with traditional qualities of American literature and drama. Jeff Nicholsmuch-a nticipated follow-up to his breakthrough second feature ake Shelter feels less adventurous and unsettling but remains a well-carpen-t ered piece of work marked by some fine performances and resilient thematic fiber. N early every relationship in Nicholss screenplay is threatened, fractured or bro-k en. Ellis (Tye Sheridan) has good reason to believe that h is parents (Sarah Paulson, Ray McKinnon) are headed for a divorce, while his bestp al, Neckbone (Jacob Lofland), is being raised by h is oyster-diving uncle Galen (Michael Shannon Ellis, whos 14, lives in a funky old houseboat while the nearby Arkansas town isa characterless wasteland of large chain stores and housi ng developments. On a deserted island out in the Mississippi, the boyss tumble into the grizzled, unkempt Mud (Matthew M cConaughey), whos hiding out in an old boat stuck up in a tree. Even though M ud soon admits that hes killed a man in a dispute, the boys are willing to give him the benefit of the doubt and, in exchange for the promiset hat they can have the boat once hes done, they start ferrying food across to him in a launch. Nichols readily admits the i nfluence of The Adventures of Huckleberry F inn on his story, in addition to those of otherS outhern writers. Such stories were formerly staples of American writing and theres enough dramatic and emotional meat on this one tos uspect that audiences would easily engage with it. The title character is a perennial,a flawed man who admits the error of his ways andh opes for a second chance in the face of those who vengefully seek to take him down. Significantly more appealing is the boy, Ellis, a sensitive, watchful, tough kid w hos able to stand up for himself. Although much s maller, he punches out an older high schooler and is flirted with seriously enoughb y an older girl to imagine that shes become his girlf riend. His anger at his parents for not finding a way to remain together is painful enough to give them pause. Sheridans performanceg rows in stature and confidence as the film pushes on; h e often keeps his words to a minimum, but his eyes and increasingly untrusting atti-t ude toward adults and what they say speak volumes for h is burgeoning understanding of the unsavory ways of the world. M uds getaway plans require the boys to steal an outboard motor for him but he also asks Ellis to contact his ladylove Juniper (ReeseW itherspoon), whos laying low in town waiting for the green light to join Mud. Also hovering, however, is a squad of bounty hunters ledb y a hulking bad old boy (Joe Don Baker M ud killed. Theres more than enough a nger, disappointment and disillusion to go around in Nicholss carefully constructed, slightly overextended drama. Its easy to criti-c ize Mud for being old-fashioned, too redolent in familiar dramatic tropes, overly intent on establishing interlocking motifs and themes,a nd happy to fall back on both climactic violence and wishful thinking when it comes to second chances. More than anything, the characters of the boys keep i t real and alive, the films emotional credibility overr iding its dramatic convenience. W ith messy hair, tattoos and a chipped tooth,M cConaugheys Mud is a mess but still not without c harm. After a string of silly and underperforming commercial outings, Witherspoon is on the money here in a strictly supportingt urn as a trampy gal whos wasted her life thus far. Young Lofland as Elliss pal, has a great face; Shannon, the star of Take Shelter seems present more for m oral support than for his r ole, which is very incident al, while Sam Shepard puts far more than his recent norm into his acute characterization of a man who may or may not be Muds real father and may or may not have been a government hit man.

It wasw here I was fulfilled and through which others told m e they were blessed. Proverbs 22:6, NKJV, reminds us to Train up a child in the way he should go.Then it continues tos ay, And when he is old, he will not depart from it.

S o, pray, watch, listen, suggest and engage with them in various pursuits that are importantt o them. I have watched how our oldest son and his wife dot his with their children. And I think of our oldest grandson, Walter, who is1 5. From his toddler years, h e has had a winning personality, been a helper, comfortable with people,a nd willing to work hard to achieve goals. His mom h as been actively engaged in Boy Scouts alongside him to help him achieve his goals, as has his dad. The fact he will achieve E agle Scout status before he is 16 attests to what is u nfolding for the future. His Christian testimony is clear and we are veryp roud of him and so thankful to God for his faithfuln ess. Aunique path awaits each of our grandchildren. A ccording to their individual gifts, talents and personalities, they will build on the firm foundation of good parenting in order tow alk in the steps God has planned for them. Lets help all of our children, grandchildren and any others he brings ourw ay to walk in his steps; but, in the right fit of their o wn shoes. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent. His steps, my shoes P ause And C onsider Jan Merop Be ready to face a few challenges this week, Virgo Horoscope DearAbby: As a father of two teenage daughters, Ih ave a question about couples living together. Do relationships that start this way have a higher failure rate than those that dont? What should be considered when a young girl has the living together question presented to her by a young man? And most important, what can I as a father do to help my daughters make an intelligent decision about this, other than just load my shotgun (LOL As always, thank you for broadening my wisdom horizon and giving me examples of solid advice from which both my and my family's life have been enriched. Longtime Fan in Ohio DearLongtime Fan: It depends upon whether the couple living together are engaged to be married and their level of education. From what Ive read, the higher the level of education, the more stable the couple will be. If the question is presented to your daughters, ideally you will have gotten to know the young man, and the relationship will have developed beyond the casual stage. However, I cannot stress strongly enough the importance of your girls being independent, self-supporting and completing their education before they decide to do this. One of the most common reasons women remain in unhappy marriages/relationships is the fear they cant survive on their own. DearAbby: My husband and I are hoping you could shed some light on the practice of throwing rice at a wedding. We were not only wondering when and how the practice started, but also do people still throw rice today at weddings? We had heard that guests had stopped doing so to help protect wildlife (especially birds). Have you found this to be true? If so, what do we throw now? Empty-Handed in Wisconsin DearEmpty-Handed: Rice-throwing is an ancient tradition that may date back to ancient Rome and Egypt or even earlier. It was a ritual having to do with fertility many grains of rice equating to having many children. In some countries, the couple is pelted with dates, raisins or even eggs, according to Ask Yahoo. According to Emily Post: All the traditional materials have their drawbacks: Rice can be dangerous for birds if ingested; birdseed can sprout weeds in unwanted places; rose petals are notoriously slippery; and even bubbles can stain a gown. Instead, you might distribute colored flags or streamers for guests to wave. ... It beats assigning someone then early impossible task of trying to recover grains and seeds from grass and flower beds. Its Abby again: This is why I recommend that instead of tossing anything, you shower the happy couple with good wishes. DearAbby: My husband and I have three daughters, identical triplets. We, like many parents of multiples, are tired of questions and unsolicited comments from strangers concerning IVF which we did not use, hence identical or anything else triplet-related. I dont think people realize how rude they are being. I have been asked when did I know, how much did they weigh, what are their full names, etc. Abby, would you please discuss baby etiquette with the world? I do not feel questions about my children from total strangers are appropriate. They even make me feel unsafe. Multiple Mom in Oklahoma DearMultiple Mom: Identical triplets are unusual, and what the questioners are doing is exhibiting natural curiosity. While I agree that asking how your daughters were conceived is inappropriate, a polite way to respond would be to say, They were conceived with love. Write to DearAbby.com or P.O.

C M Y K I I s s y y o o u u r r c c h h i i l l d d r r e e a a d d y y ? ?Many children start showing an interest in potty training a round age 2, but others arent ready until theyre older because successful potty training begins when a child is physi cally and emotionally ready, which doesnt always happen at the same time for everyone. Here are some s igns of readiness you can look for: Ability to stay dry for two or more hours during the day. Interest in the potty chair, toilet or wearing underwear. Communicating with words, b ody language and facial expressions when they need to go. Complaints about wet or dirty diapers. W W h h a a t t y y o o u u n n e e e e d dBefore you start potty traini ng, consider having a few of these tools ready to help make the t ransition as smooth as possible: Potty chair Put a potty chair in the bathroom. Look for a model w ith a removable top that can be placed on top of the toilet seat when your child is ready to start making the transition. Asmall footstool Some k ids feel a little insecure sitting on the big potty. Placing a stool under their feet can help stabilize them. Training pants Training pants are a great way to move o n from diapers, and help toddlers feel like a big kid before making the jump to underwear. Rewards In addition to verbal praise for their efforts, consider small rewards such as stickers or stars on a chart. Every five or 10 stickers equals an extra bedtime story or game. T T r r y y s s o o m m e e t t h h i i n n g g n n e e w wB abyCenters 2012 American Media Mom Report shows that as many as 65 percent of moms now own a smartphone, and 74 percent of moms let their children use their smart-p hones.

Brands such as Pull-Ups now offer a wide variety of mobile tools to ensure youre always ready for potty training success, wherever you go.

O O v v e e r r c c o o m m i i n n g g o o b b s s t t a a c c l l e e s sY oull probably hit a few roadblocks and encounter stubbornness at its finest with your toddler after youve started the potty training process. Keep in mind these dos and donts i n order to get past them: Dont use punishments or threats. Always use positive reinforcement. Let children learn at their own pace. Stay positive when accidents happen. Take training breaks if needed. Boost fruit and veggie intake to help prevent constipation. Roadblocks aside, potty training successes are always worth sharing and celebrating.
