C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.com SEBRING To reach Hidden Creek Farms Animal Rescue, a visitor drives down a long, rutted track between walls of green overgrowth. The drive o pens suddenly on acres of open pasture land. Ametal skeleton of a long abandoned nursery s hed stands out against the sky to the right only one or two plastic panels are left of the roof. T here is a wonderful surprise within that skeleton, however resting within neatly raked, metal-rail stalls are 22 horses of varying size, color and breed. The horses are friendly and calm. There is a deep peace, quiet enough to hear small h orse noises the soft snort, the swish of a tail, the clop of a hoof. Atrue horse whisperer created this oasis veteran horse trainer Pamela Mosher.

He was one in a group of freshman junior varsity baseball players who were moved up to the varsity team. Not so much as players, but as observers. The young boys watched from the bench rather than from behind the fence and saw what it took to be a championship team. Devlin recalls watching some of his childhood heroes like Greg Jackson, Duane Council, Duane Young, Geno Taylor and his brother Tim go on to win the 1984 state championship under the watchful eye of Coach Ronnie Jackson.

C M Y K F inal in a seriesB y CAROLKLINE News-Sun correspondentIn 2009, women made up 8 percent of the total veteran p opulation in this country. Today the ratio of more than 50,000 wounded soldiers is believed to be that one in 10 are female. That being said,t he Veterans Administration now has five regional Polytrauma Rehabilitation Centers (PRCs country. T he new Polytrauma Rehab Center adjacent to the Audie Murphy Memorial Veterans Hospital in San Antonio is part of that system. It offers an immediates olution for care for our wounded veterans returning f rom overseas or from devastating injuries received during service time here at home. More newly developed p rograms, such as that found in the National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE yet another example ofi mmediate trauma care. It offers cutting-edge treatment, research and technology for military men and women suffering from trau-m atic brain injuries and other psychological health disorders. Still, long-term care is the concern that must be addressed. Here in America, we have c ome a long way toward acute care for veterans, but n ot without complications. Bureaucratic oversight, funding and construction snafus make deadlines hard to hit. Our daughter served as ap ediatric intensive care unit nurse at Wilford Hall Medical Center, Lackland Air Force Base, and was on her way home at the time ofh er car accident. After more than a year in rehab facilities, she was scheduled to be admitted to the new PRC in SanA ntonio. Because of delays in its opening, she was sent to a nursing facility and an 8-month stay caused almost irreparable damage.

Special to the News-SunA VON PARK Jacob Jake Jordan does not fit the typical mold of an undergraduate student. Jordan has a complex life. H e is 36 years old, works full-time running his business Jlj Construction and Development Inc., is responsible for a family, and is af ull-time student in the honors program at South Florida State College. Originally from West Palm Beach, Jordan and his family moved to Highlands County to be close to his grandparents. He earned his high school diploma through SFSCs General Education Development (GED gram in 1995 and then pursued what he thought would be his lifelong career, construction. Jordans decision to go to college was simple for him. The construction business was going downhill, and I was putting all my time and effort into my business without receiving anything tangible in return, he said. Finally, I was not willing to gamble anymore. The economy made it extremely difficult to do business, he said. Personally, I never asked for advanced payment from my customers and I was using my personal money u pfront to purchase all building expenses and materials. People stopped paying me ina timely manner when I finished a job. Times were bad. The difficulties progressed,a nd I had to put a lien on someones property. Jordan said he primary m otivation to go back to college was to pursue a career that provided worthy income, benefits, and stability what you dont really get out of construction, he said. During my first semester of college, I was advised to take one class to see if I could handle being a student. Little did I know that I could handle and surpass my original expectations. My son and wife were even surprised at my success. From there, Jordan made it a personal goal to take on a full load of classes and earn a 4.0 grade point average. I think some traditional students have the skills, mentality, and time, but do not have the drive to excel, he said. My determination, maturity, and experience have been beneficial to my college involvement.

Mothers never stop worrying. In fact, w orrying is a mothers main job. Are the children eating healthy food? Are they working up to their potential?W ill they jump off a cliff if everyone else does? Will they write thank-you notes to their grandparents? Ignore thef ive-second rule? Wear clean underwear every day in case theyre in a car crash? R aising fulfilled and self-confident children takes courage, effort and a strong stomach. It helps to have a senseo f humor. Thats because its usually mothers w ho end up feeding the dog the children promised theyd care for, who learn to score baseball games when they find the game boring, who allow tweens to haves lumber parties and (at least try to with algebra homework. It never ends, as the ladies said. M others loan grown children money, babysit their grandchildren for free and freely give their children the benefit oft heir experience and opinions often having to deal with protests and sarcasm w hile they do. No mother is perfect, but each of our mothers is most likely the most impor-t ant, the wisest, most supportive, most frustrating, most infuriating person each o f us know. M ostly they make us feel loved. Next Sunday is Mothers Day. Were reminding you early so you wont forget. I f you want to take your mother out f or a family meal together, make reservations now Mothers Day is traditionally the busiest day of the year for restaurants. Send your mother a card to let her know youre thinking of her. Let her know how much, looking back, you are grateful she didnt kill you. I f youre at least 40, its probably safe to tell her how you used to drag race down Henscratch road or skinnydip in Lake Denton with friends or howy ou hitchhiked to Clewiston when you were 13. Y ou also might get smacked on the back of your head, but it makes an unexp ected gift your mother will really enjoy. Dont forget Mothers Day, or youll hear about it the rest of the year One day not long ago, a grown son confessed to his mother that when he was a teen he used to go toP ort Everglades, put on Scuba gear and ride the propeller wash from the cruise ships. I have spent the last week suffering from ar ather nasty cold. It has been very unfair; it has m ade me sick enough to be miserable but well enough to go on with my life, moreo r less. Not that going on with m y life has won me any brownie points. When people learn I have a cold,t heir first reaction is pretty much, Stay away! I have felt like I needed to cry unclean, unclean! as I go about my day to warn the h ealthy to give me a wide berth. Actually, I dont need to say anything this cold has come with a deepc ough that has done a decent job of alerting people to my health status. And I have to admit it sounds pretty impressive, like I am trying to hack up a lung. Though all I seemt o bring up is a never-ending supply of mucus. T rying to sleep with such a cough is an exercise in frustration. And yes, I do cover my mouth when I cough andc arry around hand sanitizer that I use liberally. I am doing the best I can, short of isolating myself until this stupid cough decidest o leave (and were on day nine of these fun and games and the cough remains). Yes, I have been checked out by Don, who is a doctor. He has assured me that this is a virus plus allergies run wild, and that it will eventually get tired of me and go away. I am ready for that to happen as soon as possible. Meanwhile, I catch extra rest when I can, to the detriment of my poor house. You may think its taking advantage of the situation to put off housework and blame it on my cold. You would be correct. But something good should come of this misery. I decided to Google common cold facts. Fun (but useless away with: according to a 2010 article on Real Simples website, the germiest jobs are the following: teacher, accountant, banker, radio DJ, doctor, TVproducer, consultant, publicist and lawyer. Think about this one for a minute. I can understands everal of these, especially teachers. Teachers deal w ith kids who are walking germ factories of course theyre going to get sick. A nd doctor is a no-brainer. Doctors spend their days dealing with the sick. A nd a medical license doesnt grant you special i mmunity. Trust me on this one. But radio DJ? That one is a puzzler. Many years ago I did a radio talk showa nd I cant think of anything particularly germy about the job. Sure, I had the occasional guest, but a lot of times it was me and the microphone. Unless germs can travel over ap hone line, Im not sure how your average DJ is put a t better than average risk. According to www.coldeeze.com reports, what weve come to know as the common cold was givent hat name in the 1500s because the symptoms suffered were similar to what happened to people who were out in the cold for tool ong. However, there really is no evidence that being cold makes you get a cold, despite what our moms told us. Oh, and my friend Tina directed me to psychcentral.com which reports, among other things, that some people have managed to slip a disc because they twisted their neck sideways while sneezing. I hope that doesnt apply to coughing as well, because if it does Ive been flirting with disc slippage all week. Until this is over, I will do my best not to breathe on you. In the meantime, if you stumble across a stray lung, let me know I might finally have hacked it up. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Another monument to hubrisEditor: The dedication of George W. Bushs Presidential C enter is yet another monument to hubris and a rewrite of history. Featured exhibits include a piece of the World Trade Center buildings brought down on 9/11, together with his bull horn, which he held while draping himself over a New York fire chief to demonstrate his supposed camaraderie. Modestly omitted is the Mission Accomplished banner from the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln visited in 2003 and his flight suit and the S-3 Viking aircraft, emblazoned with his name as if an aircrew member, to a ship which was 30 miles offshore before his historic hop. Why not? Reagans has an Air Force One as well as a piece of the Berlin Wall. What should have been included was the erroneous data fed to Congress and country to induce us to invade Iraq, all later contained in Congress joint resolution of Oct. 2, 2002. Perhaps also his faux modesty and humor about not finding weapons of mass destruction. Now he pride fully postures and declares it was still a good thing to have done; history will judge him, etc. etc. For the family another occasion to put forward JEB for 2016, his sterling record in dismantling schools in Florida by advancing testing over teaching, with no mention of the familys heavy investment in testing companies by JEB. Just what we need, another Bush to add laurels to the litany of the family creds. Invasion of Panama to arrest one man. Invasion of Iraq based on faulty information. What would JEB like to invade? Perhaps Cuba to mollify his Miami Crazy Constituency. Yeah! Just what we need, another Bush. Randy Ludacer Lake PlacidExamine the statementsEditor: OK, here we go on Guantanamo bay and the prisoner of war holding facility for enemy combatants, or as our president calls it, a recruitment facility for extremists. First of all lets define enemy combatants, lets see, that would be someone who is waging war against a people they hate. Al-Qaeda declared war on the United States in August of 1996, and again in Feb. 23, 1998. This last declaration contained the following instructions to Muslims everywhere: The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies civilians and military is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it Every Muslim who believes in God and wishes to be rewarded to comply with Gods order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. Second, is the president right about Gitmo being a recruitment facility for extremist, well everyone in there is there because they are Islamic extremist caught at planning or committing an act of terror? Im not sure, but it seems to me they had already been recruited before they got there. However, in prisons throughout our country men are being converted to Islam, and extremist views. Our president wants to reinforce this by transferring those in Gitmo to prisons in our country. Please tell me, where is the logic in that? The above statement to Muslims on Feb. 23, 1998 must be examined in light of our Christian heritage. First their god is a lower case g, not upper case G, the Muslim god is an Arab tribal moon god, not the God of the Bible. How do I know this? Well the God of the B ible tells us to love our enemy, to give them water when they are thirsty, to give them food when they are hungry, and to bind their wounds. Im not sure but I believe that is what we are doing in Gitmo. On the other hand, the enemy tortures, starves, and removes the heads of those they capture. Nuff Said. Larry J.

It is part of the mandate of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. It was signed intol aw in 2010, but only now are many of its provisions coming to light. Those who fail to meet government requirements could be forced to pay a fine of up to 1 percent oft heir total annual income. AKaiser Family Foundation poll released last month shows as many as one in four Americans have no idea that the mandatory health care rules are the law of the land and even fewer know what it will meant o them in terms of time, money and expense. Those in the know say much of the focus of the health care debate will center around the impact onb usinesses and employment-based health insurance, as well as the contribution of new taxation and regulation to the rising cost of health insurance premiums and the regula-t ory changes that will be imposed as part of the plan. The most recent session of the Florida legislature came to an end this past week with lawmakers failing to deliver on Gov.

At t he end of May, the time capsule will be placed into the floor of the Government Center lobby, the spot marked with a bronzep laque, and will rest safely suspended in time for the next 50 years. Commissioner Ron Handley, who has a con-s truction firm, oversaw the excavation of the capsules v ault, which will be located near the entrance to the H ighlands County Tax Collectors office on the f irst floor of the Government Center.

Ive literally been on a job right before class and had to shake off the dust and clean myself up a little to look presentable. Jordan will graduate summa cum laude from SFSC on Monday and plans to pursue a bachelors degree in petroleum engineering. Only 12 undergraduate petroleum engineering programs exist in the United States. None are in Florida, so Jordan will have to move out of state to get the degree he desires. When choosing a career, Jordan took six months to carefully research and examine the pros and cons of different industries. He didnt want to go into a career that wasnt moving forward. He has already been accepted to the University of Florida, University of Texas at Austin, Penn State and University of Central Florida. His dream school is the University of Texas at Austin, which has the top petroleum engineering program in the United States. However, hes pursuing the university that offers him the best scholarships. Financial aid is crucial due to the increasing costs of out-ofstate tuition, the need for living expenses and what his family can afford to pay out of pocket. Ultimately, Jordan wants to earn a masters degree in renewable energy. This career path is rapidly expanding and futuristic, he said. While pursuing his bachelors degree, he plans to do side work in construction to lessen his college expenses and to get involved with interning and shadowing people in his field as much as possible. Not many people wake up at age 36 and think about a new direction in life, Jordan said. I figured if I can do it,I will do it. Im a firm believer that you dont know until you try. Make goals and dont let anyone stop you. If you want it bad enough, youll see it through.

C M Y K r est. Youre not going to win with a horse. Remember that jumping is hard on a horse, she said. The pounding radiates up thel egs. Have a heart and quit when the horse tires. Be sure to saddle a horse correctly. The saddle should not be too far forward on the withers. There should be a finger of space between thes addle and the horse. Regularly check a horses l egs and teeth, feed them good hay break up cubes and wet them and walk them after breakfast. Feed horses separately, as it helpsc urb aggression. When changing feed brand, do it slowly, mixing brands at the start otherwise the horse is likely to suffer ab elly ache. Dont over-supplement or over do vitamins, they can mess up a horses digestive system. Belly aches may lead a horse to roll on the ground. This is very dangerous, Mosher said, and has to be stopped. When rolling, a horse tightens his intestines into a stiff knot, she explained. Metamucil every day helps the intestines remain healthy. Dont let a horse overdrink when its thirsty. Allow five sips then raise its head so it catches its breath. Florida provides horses two major aggravations sand and the fleas that live in it. Sand is a special danger because it is everywhere. For example, a horse cant help ingesting sand when it feeds in a pasture. To keep an eye on the level of sand in a horses system, Mosher recommends the bag trick. Take a baggy and pick up a small sample of the horses manure from the top of the pile. Fill the bag half full of water and hang it up. In about 15 minutes the sand in the sample will sift down to the bottom. The amount will alert an owner to developing problems. Its a really good way to check for sand, she said. Regarding fleas, Mosher recommends washing a horse twice in a row. First use Dawn dishwashing detergent its formula soothes dry and scaly skin. Follow immediately with Pine Sol, making sure to suds it up on the h orse. While the combination does not prevent fleas, M osher said, it will kill every flea on the animal. WD-40 helps soothe summer or tail itch. Mosher has advice for peop le considering adopting a wild mustang. Let me tell you Ive seen s ome psychotic horses, but wild Mustangs, you talk a bout psychotic horses, said Mosher rolling her eyes. Because of their build, Mosher added, well-trained mustangs make excellent bar-r el racers. But she warned wild mustangs are dangerous horses. She is the heart and soul, b ackbone and hands of Hidden Creek Farms. Family, friends, and volunteers help her a lot, she emphasized immediately, but caring fors o many horses is time consuming and the bulk of the work falls on her shoulders. Mosher doesnt mind. She is exactly where she wants tob e, doing exactly what she wants to do. Intense and passionate about her animals, she radiates energy. Mosher began working w ith horses in elementary school when her father bought her a pony. Her careere volved naturally as she made a conscious effort to learn all she could abouth orses. She read. She hung out at the vets office. She w orked for private barns and big commercial race tracks. But Mosher didnt like whats he saw. It was push, push, push, s he said, all about the money, never about the horse. Which is why Mosher rescues psychotic horses, ass he calls them, and gives them back their lives. Some h orses are arrogant, she added, but not all. Some are the victims of circumstance. Take Brandy, a horse trained to become a buckingb ronco. She was taught that her job was to buck a rider off asq uickly as she could, Mosher said. Somehow, the horse ended up with a private family. When the daughter tried tor ide, Brandy did her job and bucked (the girlf. She e nded up with me, and she bucked me eight times before I got her quieted down. I had to retrain her to a different job having peo-p le ride on her back, Mosher said, adding that Brandy l oves her new work. Mosher said the three most common problems for horses are the result of their complicated, easily compromisedd igestion system, damage to joints or leg bones and human ignorance. I s that last one that causes the most damage. Most people dont have a clue (about maintaining a horse), she said. You cantj ust keep a horse in a pasture and bring them out to ride w henever you want. Horses need attention, she said. They have to be brushed before every ride, then cooled off and hosed after.S and gets under the saddle causing pain and sores. B ecause horse intestines are twisted, they are prone to all kinds of colic and digest ive problems, ailments that can lead to death. The major sign of physical distress is a sudden inability to gain weight, or suddenlyl ose weight. Two horses currently in her care came to her 300 pounds underweight. Another was 400 pounds too skinny t hats ribs sticking out, near death territory (Mosher used the word emaciated dozens of times). She said it takes about four t o six weeks for a horse to settle in and a good eight months to get back into shape. The horses come to her from all over, mostly byw ord-of-mouth. There are times she steps in herself. At o ne auction she bought a horse that would otherwise h ave gone to a horse meat processing plant. There is one type of horse she cannot help older horses their owners no longerw ant. Mosher said she cannot run a retirement center. She needs to save her resources and space for the neglected or injured. I n any case, she added, horse owners owe their animals comfortable last years. Do whats right. Give the horse who has served you ap roper retirement. Its the least you can do. She finds homes for some of her horses, some are there for earned rest, some help support the shelter. M osher gives riding lessons, provides horse-themed p arties featuring real horses, and has a small petting zoo, a ll to raise funds for Hidden Creek Farms Animal rescue. Afamily may lease a horse to have at their riding disposal. They are expected to feedi t and clean its stall. Another way to help is to sponsor a horse. Expenses are high especially the feed bill. She wel-c omes donations in dollars, supplies or volunteer work. A roof for the barn would be nice. Mosher is looking for a h ome for Shorty. Apermanent injury to a knee renders him unridable, but he is an excellent companion horse. Mosher will give him to a good home.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Dr. Diana D. Carr, a longtime Sebring orthopaedic surgeon and resident, has for the second year been named as a Top Doctor by US News & World Report. Carr treats patients at The Hand & Shoulder Specialists offering specialty care close to home with a concentration on healing shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand problems. She is certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Carrs long list of achievements include being the areas only Orthopaedic Surgeon certified as a hand specialist. This means Carr has a subspecialty certificate in surgery of the hand that can only be achieved by board certified orthopaedic surgeons who have demonstrated qualifications in hand surgery beyond those expected of other orthopaedic surgeons by virtue of additional training, a practice characterized by a majority of cases in hand surgery, and passing a rigorous exam. I am honored to be chosen for this recognition, Carr said. I am grateful to be able to return patients to the enjoyment of their leisure activities and to productive work by easing their shoulder, wrist or hand pain. Carrs practice offers onsite digital x-rays including motion studies of wrist and shoulder that often reveal problems that still films and MRI do not. Most surgeries can be done as outpatient to get patients on the road to healing and a happier life. Other common ailments she treats include office trigger finger release, finger joint replacement, wrist fractures without a cast, hand reconstruction, carpal tunnel syndrome, rotator cuff problems in addition to less common hand and shoulder problems.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comSEBRING If a cold, d elicious treat is whats been missing from your life lately, then youre in luck because downtown Sebring has just the right new business for you. A &Z Frozen Yogurt Cafe opened its doors at 115 S. R idgewood Drive on Monday with high hopes of bringing something uniquet o Highlands County. Owners Zaleatra and A ntwan Taylor are excited about their new venture in Sebring and have big plans for the yogurt shop. The idea to open the shop came toZ aleatra a couple of years ago after the couple moved b ack to Sebring from Orlando. e lived in Orlando for m any years. I would always go out and get yogurt when I l ived there. I love it. When we moved back here in 2011, I thought Why noto pen up a yogurt shop? Taylor said. After talking it over with h er husband, the Taylors began scouting locations a round Sebring. My husband Antwan actually found this spot. He rode by one day and saw it and we just made the call.I s the perfect location. It couldnt have worked out any better, Zaleatra Taylor said. Fresh paint, plumbing and a new wall were the major components in re-vampingt he long-vacant space, she said Its a nice, quiet, quaint space. I hope to bring variety and something different to downtown. I want to bring more things to this great his-t oric community. I was really surprised that Sebring doesnt already have a frozen yogurt shop, but I think it will fit right inb ecause there is definitely a need for it, Zaleatra Taylor said. Offering the two most traditional flavors (vanilla and chocolate) every day with m ore than 30 toppings, A&Z is sure to give patronstasteb uds a nice, refreshing zing. The yogurt shop is set up as a serve yourself buffet where customers grab a bowl, fill it up as much ast hey desire and layer on the toppings. The final concoction is priced by weight at 49 cents per ounce, so the cost is completely up to the customer. There are so many topp ings and everything is fresh and hand-cut here in our k itchen. We have strawberries, blueberries, nuts, caramel and just so much more. Its all included in the weight, so the customer cana dd as much as they like, said Zaleatra Taylor. A&Z also features a decadent red velvet cake which will be available for pur-c hase by the slice daily. In the coming weeks, a second yogurt machine will be added to the shop offering different yogurt flavors. e will have a new flavor each week and sometimes change it out each day. Weve ordered peach, cookie dough, peanut butter, cheese-c ake just all different types of yogurt, Zaleatra Taylor said. A&Z has done well in its opening week and Taylor hopes to continue the quick s uccess with no hiccups. An expansion is in the works f or A&Z if everything at the Sebring location continues to go smoothly. My goal is to open a chain of A&Z shops. Then ext place we are looking at is Lake Placid, once everything is going well and flowing here in Sebring we are going to go down there There are so many things I feel like I can bring to S ebring that the bigger cities have and they will do just as w ell in this smaller community. Its been going really, really well and Im excited to keep moving forward, said Zaleatra Taylor. A &Z is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. The shop is closed on S unday. A&Z will be open for extended hours during the various downtown Sebring events. The phone number is 3810130. Page A8News-SunSunday, May 5, 2013www.newssun.com E.O.

Rehberg, executive d irector of the North Florida Workforce D evelopment Board and one of the key negotiators, spokeW ednesday at the 2013 S tatewide Business Liaisons Workshop at the Chateau lan. The c ourtship began in December2 010 when it was discove red Klausner Lumber One, USA, a G erman Company, planned to build an additional plant and needed a new site that would pro-d uce 350 new primary jobs. The process took years and required research, persistence and teamwork to bring off. I n the winter and spring of 2011, Rehberg and othe rs began their homework doing research, creatingn etworks, partnerships, gathering and sharing information and building a negotiating team. The team needed to find o ut exactly what the German company needed in terms of resources and manpower. For example, the county had to be sure ith ad enough timber to make its site attractive. Tax and financial incentives had tob e developed. In May 2012, the team worked up a proposal package. It met with the county commission, which had toa pprove. Some of those commission meetings, I dont even have to tell you about, Rehberg said to knowingl aughter. To help recruit Florida workers, she and her col-l eagues had the company produce a video showing what was entailed with thed ifferent job descriptions that was shown to potential j ob applicants. Company executives were invited for a tour of the local housing m arket. By August of 2012, the Suwanne team was sure it hadt he resources needed for the c ompany to make the cost of its investm ent worthwhile. I n October 2012, representatives f rom the Workforce, county commissioners and other stakeholders traveled to Germany to meetK lausner company executives to go over any questions and make their pitch. In January of 2013, the company announced itc hose the Suwanne site. In February, a timeline was d eveloped, and the hiring process begun.C onstruction on the plant will begin later this year. The key to success was the teamwork, Rehberg said. Making personalc ontacts, networking, communicating and following up.

That goal was met just three years later when APHSb aseball won the 1987 state championship, beating Miami Opa Locka Pace. I was truly blessed and privileged to be a part oft hat. I learned a great deal not only about sports but teamwork, hard work andc ommitment, Devlin said. He shared a bond with those teammates and with thec oaches, but it was more than that bond that made the t eam. That championship, and all others in the history ofA von Park, were a product of the support of families, c oaches, teachers, teammates, classmates the entire community. Just as it takes a town to raise a child, it takes a community effortt o produce championship caliber programs, he said. D ecades following that 1987 championship title, Devlin and Jackson haver emained close. Close enough in thought and comp assion for a city and its athletic youth to organize the Avon Park Champions Club, a group that provides support necessary for all athletic programs at the middle and high school. That support comes in a v ariety of ways. The better known is probably through recognition of past achievements through the Hall of Fame Banquet. Not onlyd oes this annual event allow past achievements to be reco gnized, it allows upcoming athletes to glean some inspi-r ation.

The Champions Club is not for just one school, ones port or one academic program. Its goal is to provide s upport for all of them.

Wagner came to the attention of police when SPDO fficer Yulier Ortega spotted him in the crowd on W ednesday using his cell phone to video the second vehicle fire. Wagner was in prison from Nov. 21, 2008 until Sept. 30, 2011 for arsona nd aggravated assault, a search of Department of C orrections records show. The officers on the scene did a good job of beingo bservant and recognizing that an individual in the c rowd was filming (the fire), said SPD Commander Steve Carr. Thats a known c haracteristic of arsonists, so it was worth following up on. Carr also thanked the State Fire Marshals Office for itsw ork on the case. On March 28, a truck was set on fire in the parking lot of Yogi Bar at 536 N. Ridgewood Drive, causing$ 1,000 in damage. The fire was started in the drivers s eat. In Wednesdays fire, the v ehicle was a total loss with more than $8,000 in damage. F ire Marshal Miles Davis determined that that fire had started in the area of the dri-v ers seat. While conducting crowd c ontrol at the scene, Ortega saw Wagner recording the fire with his phone and askedh im to move back. Ortega reported that Wagner was acting strange, so he asked for identification. Wagner reportedly spontaneously stated I did not start that fire. O n Thursday, Wagner was brought in for questioning a bout the fires. He reportedly confessed to setting the car fires, using papers fromt he console as kindling. He told investigators he had left t he bar and checked several cars in the parking lot until he found one that was u nlocked. After starting the fire, he went across the street and waited until first responders arrived to start taking video. O n June 10, 2012, Sebring Police were sent to 1622 Dinner Lake Drive in Sebring when somebody noticed a skinny whitem ale walking around the home with a flashlight and k nocking on the door. When officers arrived, t hey found Wagner, who matched that description and w as carrying a flashlight, walking in the side yard of 1655 Dinner Lake Drive. W agner reportedly told police that he had been c hecking on his friends house because he said the friend had told him het hought someone might be staying inside. I nside, officers found all the stove burners were on and the oven was on broil with several items a paper towel, a can of oatmeal ap lastic drink cup and a bag inside. W agner, whose story changed several times according to the arrestr eport, told police he hadnt gone inside, then said he had g one inside through an open door in the laundry room, then again said he hadnt g one inside. The homeowner told police that while he did know Wagner, he should not be inside the residence. W agner also reportedly confessed to breaking into the home when he was questioned on Thursday, stating that the homeowner owedh im money so he broke into the house, drank a beer, and t hen placed the items in the oven and turned it on. Hes aid he later changed his mind and called police. C ontinued from A1 cern. Where do veterans go when the initial acute care they receive at facilities such as the National Intrepid Center, or the Polytrauma Rehab Center ends, and their progress or personal situation inhibits them from going home? Nursing care facilities are simply not the answer, and that is why the newer oneto-one care programs being offered in such organizations as CORE are so important. According to Kristi Jones, admissions director at the CORE facility west of Austin, There are several post-acute rehab facilities in California, several in Texas,a few in Florida, and a few on the Northeast Coast. The rest of the country is very lacking in this kind of care. After watching our daughter (an Air Force major, a registered nurse who served two tours in Iraq) deteriorate in a nursing home setting, it is imperative that more is done. Facilities such as CORE Health Care, who offer postacute rehabilitation and long-term care as well, who are staffed with licensed professionals and provide oneto-one care, are essential in this new era of young men and women veterans. Preserving their dignity and restoring their independence to the extent possible is paramount for those who have given so much to protect this countrys freedom. It is where we must go from here.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Storm clouds that washed away Wednesday nights openingr ound of the state baseball playoffs still lingered on Thursday, keeping most on edge even up until game timea s to whether the Dragons would get their chance a gainst the visiting Tampa Catholic Crusaders. T he skies did finally begin to clear in the early innings, a nd Lake Placid kepts its crowd on edge right up until the waning moments of the 1-0 loss. Heath Harris was tabbed to toe the rubber for the Dragons this night, locking horns with Tampa Catholic right-hander A.J. Gonzalez. And what a pitchers duel this one turned out to be. While Harris struggled at times with his command, hitting three batters on the night, he battled through and kept the Crusaders predominantly in check. I just couldnt get a grip on my curveball, and I hit the third kid on a fastball, Harris said. I dont know what happened there. Gonzalez was certainly keeping the Lake Placid lineup in check, not allowing a hit or even a baserunner through the first four innings. Harris worked around a one-out single in the first and got some help from his defense in the second. Joseph Burruezo lead off the top of the second with a single to right and was moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by James Gizzi. After a wild pitch moved Burruezo to third, Jake Clark then was the first Tampa batter to get plunked on the night. Harris bounced back to get the next hitter looking at strike three, but Josh Russo put a charge into a fastball and sent it screaming to deep, left-center field. But as the ball seemed destined for a two-RBI, extra base hit to the wall in the gap, center fielder Justin LaRosa came streaking across the green of the outfield grass to snare it with an outstretched glove to retire the side. Adefensive miscue in the third would lead to the one run, and an unearned run at that, as Dre Leal lead off the frame by reaching on an error. Paulie Russo followed with a looped single into short left field and another curve got away and hit Jorge Romero to load the bases with nobody out. Kyle Barber came through for the Crusaders with a single to center, bringing Leal in, but LaRosa made a strong throw home where Laine Daum took it and ticked Russo with a sweep tag for the out. Harris then induced a fielders choice grounder to second and a pop-out to short to get out of it, with Tampa Catholic now with a 1-0 lead.

A stunning last push propelled Tubbs to second place. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe wind and rains that washed away much of Wednesday night Regional baseball throughout the state, made its way to Jacksonville and wreaked havoc with the C lass 3AState Finals Friday. Rain and 30 mile-perhour winds, Sebring pole vaulter Blake Fort said of the conditions. W hich would seemed to have had a major effect on her event especially. Whether it was getting a grip on the pole, slick footing, or a combination of things, Fort, who was shooting for at least nine feet in the event, wasnt able to clear 8-feet, 6-inches on this day. A mong the whole field for the event, only two vaulters exceeded their seed height. Similarly, grip and footing a re a vital aspect of Blue Streak Gary Demarests event, the discus. Having had a string of pr ogressively longer personal bests coming into the meet, Demarest had reached the 154-feet, 9-inch mark in winning the Region 2-3Ameeta nd was aiming for the 160s w hich would have had him pushing the top five. The results show the weather had a big impact, with numerous fouls littering the stat lines for virtually every thrower, including two Tubbs takes second at rain-soaked State See STATE, Page B4 News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Garrett DeRoss put forth a stellar effort in holding down a powerful Mitchell line-up for four innings Thursday night in the Class 6A Regional Playoffs. By LAUREN WELBORN N ews-Sun correspondentIt was a long, hardfought battle for SebringT hursday night as they traveled more than three hours to take on the Mitchell Mustangs in C lass 6ARegional Quarterfinal play. T he Streaks were origin ally scheduled to play Wednesday, however the weather had other plans in mind and the game, along with many other regional battles, was rescheduled and relocated. Looking into the Mustangsprevious stats, it would seem Sebring would have a tough time going toe-to-toe with Mitchell. Mitchells previous successes, as well as the recent sting of a ten-run mercy rule from the championship game against Winter Haven just one week prior, put Sebring in a tight spot. However it would seem this motivation fueled the fire within the Streaks, as evidenced by the stellar defense throughout the night led by pitcher Garrett DeRoss. They battled, reflected head coach Buck Rapp. They never gave up. Garrett pitched well and the guys made great defensive plays behind him. Remarkable catches and diving plays in the infield warded off any offensive threats to the Streaks. Their efforts on the defensive side helped t o keep the game interesting a nd scoreless through the first four innings of play. I n the top of the fifth, it was Sebring who brought the opening run of the night in to hold the first lead. Ty Little lead things off with a walk before Matthew Portis found the right-center field gap with a shot that would move Little into scoring position. Jared Lang then moved Portis to second base to put two men close to home with only one out. At the time, Mitchell stand-out Cobi Johnson was on the mound leading the efforts that kept the Sebring offense at bay. However, one passed ball was all it took to grant the Streaks the lead as Little made it safely home to put the board at 1-0. Johnson would make up for this mistake in the bottom of the inning as his rip down the left field line put him on second base while brining in two other Mustang runners. One error slipped through the ever-persistent Sebring defense to allow Mustangs reign over Streaks They battled. They never gave up.

Stephens Jr Continued from B1 SFSC honors student-athletes B y GARYFINEOUT Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Floridas oldest professional sports franchise the Miami Dolphins was dealt a crushing blow Friday after the Florida Legislature ended it session without passing a ny funding plan that would assist the teams quest to refurbish its stadium. The refusal of the GOPcontrolled Legislature to aid t he team wasnt just a defeat for the Dolphins it could also sack South Floridas efforts to lure another Super Bowl to the region in the next few years. Others who lost out include the city of Orlando, which was hoping for help to lure a Major League Soccert eam, as well as the Jacksonville Jaguars and Daytona International Speedway. The professional sports teams were all backing a Florida Senate proposal that would have allowed each of them to compete for a share of state tax dollars. But the House led by Speaker Will Weatherford refused to bring up the legislation. I think part of the complication was the fact that it wasnt just the Dolphins, Weatherford said. You had five or six different franchises that were looking for a tax rebate, and thats serious public policy. Youre talking about hundreds of millions of dollars and I think the House j ust never got comfortable there when the session ended. But the defeat was especially stinging for the D olphins since the team had already agreed to pay for a Miami-Dade County referendum on whether to raise local bed taxes to assist the team. The initial Senate bill authorized the use of the taxes. The failure of legislators to act makes the May 14 ballot q uestion meaningless, even though early and absentee balloting had already begun. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross blasted Weatherford,s aying in a statement that the Wesley Chapel Republican had promised to at least let the legislation come up for a vote on the House floor. He put politics before the people and the 4,000 jobs this project would have created for Miami Dade, and that is just wrong, Ross said. Weatherford, in a tweet, later contended that it wasnt true that he had promised an up or down vote. Ross also said that the decision sent a terrible message to National Football League owners who will soon decide whether to bring a Super Bowl back to Florida in either 2016 or 2017. The Dolphins wanted both state and local help to pay for $400 million worth of renovations to Sun Life Stadium The Dolphins wanted $3 million a year for the next 30 years from the state. I n order to convince skeptical politicians the team agreed to a series of concessions including that itw ould pay part of the money after 30 years. B ut the push by the Dolphins coincided with an e ffort by other cities and professional sports organizations t o also obtain state tax dollars. The Florida Senate passed legislation that would have created a process where pro teams would compete for $13 million a year in state incentives. The bill would also would have let the Dolphins tap into local taxes to help pay for renovations to their stadium. But in the waning moments of the session the Senate passed a revised version that stripped the local tax portion and instead just made the Dolphins eligible for state money. That failed too. I took it 80 yards, said Sen. Oscar Braynon, DMiami Gardens and the bill sponsor. We could have kicked a field goal but were seven points down. I think Ive done everything I can.

Legislature refuses to aid Miami Dolphins News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Caitie Lytle and the Lady Panthers were in danger of falling out of the FCSAA Gulf District Tournament Saturday, but pulled off the shocker of the Friday slate, downing Gulf Coast State 2-1. As the fourth seed in the Suncoast Conference, SFSC was pitted against the Panhandle Conference and tournament top seed Commodores, who came in with a daunting 43-13 record overall, 12-4 in conference play. Gulf Coast was the number one rated team in the state, second in the nation. But behind a lockdown pitching performance from Lexi Adams and a two-run single from Lytle, the Panthers prevailed 2-1. South Florida went to 1-1 on the day, however, after falling to conference foe Polk State by a 5-1 score. In Saturdays game against another conference rival, the Panthers were trailing, but the game was not completed by press time. See Wednesdays NewsSun for a recap of the tournament. Lady Panthers pull off stunner B y TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressLeBron James is getting his fourth Most Valuable Player award and the only mystery left is whether the vote was unanimous. The Miami Heat star will b e introduced Sunday as the award winner, according to a person familiar with the results and who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the league has not publicly announced this years recipient. James will become the f ifth player with at least four MVPawards, joining Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Michael Jordan, Bill Russell and Wilt Chamberlain. No one has ever swept every first-place vote in the NBAs MVPballoting. After the season he had, James could be the first. I dont know who else youd vote for, Heat forward Chris Bosh said Friday. No offense to everybody else, but thats just how good he has played this year James averaged 26.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 7.3 assists this season, shooting a career-best 56 percent. It was absolutely no surprise that he won the award, and given the timetable for Miamis next game the Heat dont open Eastern Conference semifinal play until Monday night against Brooklyn or Chicago it had been widely assumed for several days that Sunday would be the day. If tradition holds, NBA Commissioner David Stern will then present James with the trophy again Monday night in front of the Miami fans. I absolutely have not even thought about it, James said earlier this week when asked if he considered the weight of winning the award four times in five years. I have not thought about it, until you just brought it up. I know the history. It would be a unique, unbelievable class I would be a part of, so well see. Only Russell had won four MVPs in five years, and only Abdul-Jabbar had gone back-to-back on the award twice. Abdul-Jabbar has six MVPs in all, Jordan and Russell have five apiece and C hamberlain won four. James won the award in 2009 and 2010, only got four first-place votes in 2011 his first season with the Heat then reclaimed the award last season. The other day I was sitting there with him, a week or two ago and it dawned on me, Heat guard Dwyane Wade told the AP. I said to him, Do you know youre about to get four MVPs in five years?And hes like, Man, Im just a kid from Akron.He could have gott en five in five. You know how crazy that is? This is crazy The kid from Akron is truly entering rarefied air now. Its certain that stars like New Yorks Carmelo Anthony, Oklahoma Citys Kevin Durant and the Los Angeles LakersKobe Bryant will be listed on ballots the league will unveil the full results Sunday though the only drama left is seeing if any voter thought someone had a better season than James. Apanel of writers and broadcasters from the United States and Canada vote for NBAawards. There also is one combined vote from fans who chose an MVPthrough online balloting or social media. There have been instances of people coming close to sweeping the first-place votes. Shaquille ONeal got 120 of the 121 top votes cast after the 1999-2000 season, with Allen Iverson getting the lone other one that year. And after the 2003-04 season, Kevin Garnett then with Minnesota got 120 of 123 votes, with two going to Jermaine ONeal and the other to Peja Stojakovic. Do the right thing, was Heat forward Shane Battiers suggestion to voters, just before the ballots were due. James finally got his first NBAchampionship last season, followed that up by helping the U.S. win a gold medal at the London Olympics, and then vowed to come back this season even better. The Heat say he did absolutely that. With nary a sign of a championship h angover, Miami went 6616 in the regular season, including a 27-game winn ing streak, the second-best in NBAhistory. A nd since Feb. 3, when James plays, Miami is 36-1. Were all in unison: We think he has earned it, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. He has had an even more historic season than last year. The beauty of that, if he does in fact earn it, is the fact that probably most people didnt necessarily think he could go to a different level, a higher level, after last season. Yet he reinvented himself and showed that he could. Forget that its rare in the NBAto win the MVPaward four times. Its rare in major sports, period. In baseball, Barry Bonds is the lone member of the four-or-more-MVPclub, winning seven. In hockey, itsWayne Gretzky with nine, Gordie Howe with six and Eddie Shore with four. In the NFL, only Peyton Manning has four MVPs. e never take him for granted, Spoelstra is fond of saying about James. When comparing James per-game averages this season against the best years in NBAhistory, only Jordan, Oscar Robertson, Larry Bird and John Havlicek had ever averaged so much in points, rebounds and assists per game as the reigning NBA Finals MVPdid in each of those categories this season, according to STATS LLC. And none had ever done so while shooting such a high percentage Jordan did it while shooting 54 percent, coming closest. Jameseffective field goal percentage (a metric that takes into account 3-pointers being worth more than 2point shots) this season was a career-best 60.3 percent, and he shot just over 40 percent from 3-point range, another career mark. The league handed out six Eastern Conference playerof-the-month awards this season, and James won five of them. I can see why he loves to play the game, Wade said. He can do anything he wants.

But though they were making contact against Gonzalez, nothing was getting through. oull have those games, head coach Dan Coomes said. Where youre hitting the ball well, but right at people. Other games youll hit little flares and theyll fall in. Tonight we were hitting atem ball. That was, until with one out in the fifth, shortstop Tyler Carr got a hold of one and blasted a shot deep down t he left-field line for a standup double. Gonzalez, however, reared back to strike out the next two batters to leave the tying run on. B y now, Harris was locked in the Tampa Catholic made n o more serious threats, so into the Dragons final at bat, with that lone run standing as the margin. And then things got interesting. Lake Placid, of late, has tended to score their runs in bunches, such as the six-run second inning in their 11-0, district-championship win over DeSoto, and it looked like they might be up to it again as Nathan Stanley lead off the bottom of the seventhw ith a sharp single to center. It looked like it might end quickly, however, when the next batter was caught looki ng and Daum hit a grounder to short for what looked like a potential game-ending doub le play. But the one and only defensive miscue by the Crusaders now, as with Stanley at full spring and closing in hard on second, a hurried flip got away to put runners on first and second with one out. Now Tampa Catholic went to the bullpen, bringing in right hander Reeves Martin to face Carr. With two strikes, Carr hit a hard grounder headed up the middle to the left of second base. The Crusader shortstop was able to get a glove on it and make a clean flip to second for the force, but Carr easily beat the relay throw to first, putting runners on first and third with two out. Carr soon stole second to p ut the winning run in scoring position, but Martin got the last out soon enough on a grounder to send Tamapa C atholic on to the Regional Semifinals where they will f ace Berkeley Prep, who n eeded 10 innings to edge DeSoto, 7-6. s tough to come this far and have it right there, Coomes said. But that was a great game, wasnt it? The kids really played their hearts out and what they did here this year really means a lot to this community. Only two teams in the history of this school has gotten to this point, and this is one of them, he continued. Thats something they can be real proud of. Continued from B1 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Tyler Carr fires to first over Crusader Sam Nelson to complete a double play Thursday night. Dragons see great effort fall just short for Demarest. The first fault was a mishap on my part, and the second was the weather my disc was wet and it slipped out early, he said. The weather didnt help and I only had one all right throw, that was a 136. Asignificant drop, amid an event that saw many drops from seed distances. Among the top 10 places, only three saw improved throws, which was just enough to keep Demaresto ut, finishing 12th. Ill be back next year and even more prepared, he said. On to the track events, where there are less components for the rain to effect, the weather still had an obvious impact. B rian Dixon, a Sebring sophomore competing in the 200-meter dash, was among an elite field that saw time across the board drop off from the regional competitions the week before. It wasnt until the ninthplace finisher in the preliminaries that a better time was posted, and that was by a mere .02 seconds. Dixons time fell back a b it as well, by .25 seconds, unfortunately, to keep him outside the qualifying times to reach the finals. And while all four Blue S treaks who had made it to the state competition had legitamite shots at medals, t he surest bet was senior Taylor Tubbs, and she didnt d issapoint. And while it seemed s hed have a clearer path to a win in the 1,600-meter run, coming in as the top seed, Tubbs knew where some competition would come from. Emily Edwards is someone to watch, she had said earlier in the week. Shes had some good times this year and I have a feeling she can really step up with goodc ompetition. Tubbs turned out to be prophetic as the Ft. Myers junior got out early and set t he pace, disrupting Tubbs normal wire-to-wire lead. It was just the three of us t he whole time, with her in the lead, she said of her, E dwards and Rachel Givens of Chiles. (Edwards t he whole way, until I passed Givens and almost got her in the last 100 meters. Almost got her is right, as her last push left Givens in her dust or in this case wake a full five secon ds back by the finish. Was breathing right down her neck is more like it, asE dwards barely held Tubbs off, by a miniscule .19 seconds with a time of 5:00.60 to Tubbs5:00.79. So close, she said. If Id had five more meters, I w ould have caught her. I killed the last bit. A nd so the Florida-bound Tubbs finishes her high s chool career in fine fashion, having steadily moved up through the years, from a 9th-place finish as a sophomore, 7th as a junior and within an eyelash of a win in her final, phenomenal effort.

Sebring came back strong in the top of the sixth facing another Mustang pitcher but were unable to put another run on the board. Mitchell, on the other hand, would find their way around the defense to squeeze in one more insurance run to bring their lead up to 4-1.

This put men on first and second with one out left in the inning and the tying run at the plate. Unfortunately, Sebring could not capitalize on this moment and thus allowed the Mustangs to move on in the Regional bracket.

These guys will go on especially these seniors and they will be successful in whatever they do.

They are all great young men and I cannot say enough about them.

Tom Schwankweiler, Pastor. Phone 453-6052.PLACESTOWORSHIP Stop. Look. Listen. A good name is to be chosenr ather than great riches (Proverbs 22:1good name is better than precious ointment (Ecclesiastes 7:1 These words of Divine wis-d om stress the value of a good reputation as the disciple lives daily for Truth, the cause of Christ. Various names bring diff erent emotions/reactions: Adolph Hitler, Bin Laden, Jezebel, Judas, Nehemiah, David, Timothy, Ruth, Dorcas, Mary, and of course, Jesus, the Christ. You proba-b ly have a list of your own. Why different reactions? B ecause of their reputation ... good/positive or bad/negative. The memory of ther ighteous is blessed, but the name of the wicked will rot ( Proverbs 10:7). What is in a good name? Each person wears three names. The first is the one given to us at birth. The second is the family name we inherit. The third is then ame/reputation we make for ourselves. We have complete control of number three. Our name is not just how we are called, but how we arek nown. True wealth is not found in gold, silver or other tangible forms of treasure. It is found in the possession of a reputation of honor,i ntegrity and justice. (Author unknown it this way: But let your esbe Yes,and your For whatever is more than these is from thee vil one" (Matthew 5:37 Your word, i.e. name/reputat ion is your bond. Who is going to cry at your funeral? You might bea sking ... what does this have to do with a good n ame? Athaliah, daughter of Ahab and Jezebel, a worshipper of Baal, a murderer and a usurper of the throne, died/murdered. So all the people of the land rejoiced; and the city was quiet, fort hey had slain Athaliah with the sword in the kings house (2 Kings 11:20). Now, contrast this to King Josiah's death and the peo-p lesreaction: ...And all Judah and Jerusalem mourned for Josiah (2 Chronicles 35:24). Consider the reaction to Stephens death as he boldly pro-c laimed the gospel of Christ: And devout men carried S tephen to his burial, and made great lamentation over him (Acts 8:2o bvious why the different reactions to these deaths: r eputation i.e. good or bad name. There is one example that really brings this subject home: Dorcas. We read about her in Acts 9:36-41. Note carefully the following: all the widows stood by him (Peter ing the tunics and garments which Dorcas had made while she was with them.T hese actions/works/deeds speak louder than any words regarding her reputation. good name is to be chosen rather than greatr iches. Why? Listen to the Master Teacher: Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal;b ut lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where n either moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal( Matthew 6:19,20). Now learn from the preacher in E cclesiastes 5:13, There is a severe evil which I have seen under the sun: Riches kept for their owner to his hurt. What is the solution? The Holy Spirits instruction to Timothy (First Timothy6 :17-19) answers the preachers problem, Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust inu ncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready tog ive, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold of eternal life. Another of Pauls many e xhortations to young Timothy, his son in the faith, i s First Timothy 4:12: Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to theb elievers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in f aith, in purity. He encouraged Timothy to maintain and exemplify a good reputation among the Christians in Ephesus and beyond in six ways: by what you say (word, conversation,s peech), what you do (conduct, action, deeds), in love (active affection to all), in attitude (spiritual mind faith (faithfulness in allt hings) and purity (thought). The word example means model, pattern, mold. Timothy and each disciple are to set an example/moldo f good living that others could follow. They demonstrate a pattern of godliness that reinforces the message they preached/teach. Therefore, they developeda nd maintained a good name ... a good reputation. R emember, Agood name is to be chosen rather than great riches. F rank Parker can be contacted at frankparker27@gmail.com/.

C M Y K Splashing, playing, s wimming, diving and sliding are just a few of the antics you may see rivero tters performing in the course of a day. These a dorable, furry creatures rely on a healthy, clean water supply since they area dapted to spending the majority of their lives in water. Their webbed feet as w ell as long, thick tails quickly propel them t hrough the water. Since they eat mainly crustaceans, fish, and amphibians, they need to see under the water as theyh unt. They have eyes that allow them to see above and under the water. Nostrils close up when they submerge, allowing them to swim underwater without getting liquid up theirn oses. They also have excellent hearing and sense o f smell. Whiskers are sensitive to touch and allow them to find food on the waters bottom. Because they spend most o f their lives in the water, pollution of water bodies is a huge concern for these animals. Otters were once found all over NorthA merica. When the Europeans settled here and started to clear the land for development, the otters habitat began to diminish. The use of pesticides and fertilizers has also contributed to the decline of the otter. Since otters are at the top of the food chain, if their prey has been exposed to chemicals, they are affected. By the early 1980s, 11 states reported no otter population and 13 states reported very few otter populations. River otters require a large amount of space. Throughout a year, an otter may occupy 50 or more miles of a stream. River otters are active all year and are usually most lively from early evening through early morning. They are fast in the water but they are even faster on land and can run up to 15l8 mph. Adult otters dont have many natural enemies, especially while in the water. However, juvenile otters are vulnerable to predators such as the fox, wolf and raptors. Unfortunately, most otter deaths are caused by humans as well as water pollution. These lively creatures d ig dens, which are called holts. The holts main entrance will most likely be underwater and lead to a small space above the water. Holts are generally dug into a riverbank or hol-l ow log and have several holes placed to allow air in. T he mother otter will have her young within these holts, where they will remain for several months. Historically the North A merican River Otter was sought after for its beautiful pelt, which is waterproof. The fur of the otter allows it to regulate itst emperature. The color of the pelts range from grey and white to brown and black. Swimming at an average speed of seven miles per hour, otters are stealth-like and make hardly a splash or ripple. They can stay under water for up to two minutes and are also excellent divers. They also communicate with their noses by smelling marked territories. When they do speak to one another it is usually with chirps, chuckles, grunts, whistles and screams. River otters are usually small animals that can reach about four feet in length and weigh around 30 pounds. Even though they are not very big, their appetite is quite large and they can consume up to 25 percent of their body weight daily. They spend about five hours a day searching for food. Otters are quite vocal and very communicative w ith each other. They often touch noses when greeting each other. They seem toe njoy every minute of their playful lives and often s eem quite animated and friendly.We could all take a lesson from this joyful c reature whose main goal seems to be eating and playing.

As a result, Jimmy Wohl says the ability to pass ranchp roperty to future generations can be difficult, costly a nd, in some situations, require piecemeal sale of property. That is one of ther easons he is so pleased to put a conservation easement o n a portion of his ranch. Easements over important habitat on 1,064 acres of Rafter Tand on the 318-acre Miller Tract, both inH ighlands County, were acquired Friday by The N ature Conservancy and U.S. Air Force. The easements will not o nly help keep these ranches w hole, they will save important con-s ervation land like rare scrub, help wildlife l ike Florida panther and b lack bear, replenish water supplies, and protect the military missiono f the Avon Park Air Force Range. Like the Wohls, the Millers will use the easement proceedst o help maintain their r anching lifestyle and enhance the management of their cattleo peration. The easements were bought using funds awardedt o Highlands County through a state funded Defense Infrastructure Grant (DIG and federally funded Readiness and Environment Protection Initiative (REPI1. Development of the protected working cattle ranches might have compromised the mission of the Range or interfered with training and testing, as well as impacted numerous plant and animal species. Easements are an economical way of protecting Floridas most critical resources while allowing the landowner to own and manage the land. Cattle ranching provides a very low return on investment, which makes it difficult to pay inheritance taxes or dividends to shareholders, Wohl said. ith the easement placed on the property, we have some liquidity. Furthermore, this easement prevents any subdividing of the property and requires the natural communities be preserved and managed. e are forever grateful to The Nature Conservancy and Department of Defense for providing this opportunity. Not only are we providing assurances that the men and women who protect this country will always have the Avon Park Air Force Range to practice their skills, but we also have assurances that the owners of Rafter T Ranch continue to preserve the Florida ranching heritage and the gifts which MotherN ature has graciously bestowed upon us, said Wohl, a recent recipient of a stewardship award from Audubon of Florida. These win-win-win partn erships allow us to preserve habitat, protect F loridas ranching heritage and prevent incompatible development adjacent tob ases, said Greg Knecht, The Nature Conservancys d irector of protection in Florida. e look forward to working with the military whenever we can, since ourF lorida bases contain acres and acres of native habitat c ritical for a variety of important species. The establishment of t hese easements will facilitate m inimum encroachment to Avon Park AirF orce Range ensuring our warfighters are a ble to obtain the most realistic t raining we can provide, said Lt. Col. Paul Neidhardt, commander, AvonP ark Air Force Range. Not only will the easements provide a buffer for our training, they will alsoh elp preserve the Florida environm ent by providing habitats for threatened and endangered species. A long with the Conservancy and the Range, a variety of partners played vitalr oles in the coordinated effort to protect these ranchlands, including the Department of Defense, Central Florida Regional Planning Council, who worked with Highlands County, Enterprise Florida and the State of Florida. Thanks to support from Enterprise Florida, Inc., the United States Air Force, and Highlands County, these conservation easements will permanently protect the public, the military training mission of the Range, and enable the landowners to continue their ranching activities, said Central Florida Regional Planning Council program director Helen Sears. This is a great example of how the Defense Infrastructure Grant program has been successfully utilized in protecting our military installations and, through this partnership, allowed for the continued protection of the surrounding environment, said Secretary of Commerce Gray Swoope, who also serves as president & CEO of Enterprise Florida. Strong actions like this exemplify Floridas commitment to being the most military-friendly state in the nation.

Base-buffering funding to keep habitat natural River otters spend most of their time eating and playing News From The Watershed C orine Burgess Things you otter know Otters are related to weasels, minks, badgers and wolverines. They are known as Mustelids, which all have scent glands they use to mark territory. River otters can stay underwater for up to eight minutes and can close theire ars and nostrils to keep water out. They can also dive to a depth of 60 feet! River otters primarily e at fish. They are also known to eat whatever is easiest to find, like crustaceans, mollusks, insects,b irds, oysters, shellfish, crabs, crayfish, frogs, r odents, turtles and aquatic invertebrates. River otters live in all types of habitats. The only consistency with these h abitats is accessible high q uality water and an abund ant food supply. A river otter will only settle in a location with sufficient coverage, usuallyv egetation or structures such as rock piles. River otters are very playful animals and can very often be seen playing games. Social groups aret ypically made up of adult f emales and their pups. H owever, there are also groups of individual males. Otters mate from December to April and will have two to three pups.

C M Y K By ANNE DINNOCENZIO A PRetail WriterNEWYORK You can recycle your waste, grow your own food and drive a fuel-efficient car. But beings ocially responsible isnt so easy when it comes to the clothes on your back. Take Jason and Alexandra Lawrence of Lyons, Colo. The couple eat locally grownf ood that doesnt have to be transported from far-flung s tates. They fill up their diesel-powered Volkswagen and Dodge pickup with veg-e table-based oil. They even bring silverware to a nearby c offeehouse to avoid using the shops plastic utensils. But when it comes to making sure that their clothes are made in factoriest hat are safe for workers, the couple fall short. Clothing is one of our more challenging practices, says Jason Lawrence, 35,w ho mostly buys secondhand. I dont want to travel a round the world to see where my pants come from. Last weeks building coll apse in Bangladesh that killed hundreds of clothing factory workers put a spotl ight on the sobering fact that people in poor countries o ften risk their lives working in unsafe factories to make the cheap T-shirts and underwear that Westerners covet. The disaster, which comes a fter a fire in another Bangladesh factory killed 112 people last November, also highlights something just as troubling for socially conscious shoppers: Its nearly impossible to makes ure the clothes you buy come from factories with s afe working conditions. Very few companies sell clothing thats so-called ethically made, or marketed as being made in factoriest hat maintain safe working conditions. In fact, ethically made clothes make up a tiny fraction of 1 percent of the overall $1 trillion globalf ashion industry. And with a few exceptions, such as the 250-store clothing chain American Apparel Inc., most arent national brands. Its even more difficult to figure out if your clothes are made in safe factories if y oure buying from retailers that dont specifically market their clothes as ethically made. Thats because major chains typically use a com-p lex web of suppliers in countries such as Bangladesh, which often contract business to other factories. That means the retailers themselves donta lways know the origin of clothes when theyre made overseas. And even a Made in U SA label only provides a small amount of assurance for a socially conscious shopper. For instance, maybe the tailors who assembled the skirt may have had good working conditions. But thef abric might have been woven overseas by people w ho do not work in a safe environment. For the consumer, its virtually impossible to know whether the product was m anufactured in safe conditions, says Craig Johnson, president of Customer Growth Partners, a retail consultancy. For U.S.-madel abels, you have good assurance, but the farther you get away from the U.S., the less confidence you have. To be sure, most global retailers have standards forw orkplace safety in the factories that make their c lothes. And the companies typically require that contractors and subcontractorsf ollow these guidelines. But policing factories around the w orld is a costly, time-consuming process thats difficult to manage. In fact, there were five factories alone in the build-i ng that collapsed in Bangladesh last week. They p roduced clothing for big name retailers including British retailer Primark,C hildrens Place and Canadian company Loblaw I nc., which markets the Joe Fresh clothing line. I have seen factories in ( Bangladesh and other countries), and I know how difficult it is to monitor the fact ories to see they are safe, says Walter Loeb, a New Y ork-based retail consultant. And some experts say that retailers have little incentive to be more proactive and do more because the public isntp ushing them to do so. Americas Research Group, which interviews 10,000 to 15,000 consumersa week mostly on behalf of retailers, says that even in the aftermath of two deadlyt ragedies in Bangladesh, shoppers seem more conc erned with fit and price than whether their clothes were made in factories where workers are safe and m ake reasonable wages. C. Britt Beemer, chairman o f the firm, says when he polls shoppers about their biggest concerns, they rarely mention where something is made or abuses in thef actories in other countries. e have seen no cons umer reaction to any charges about harmful working conditions, he says. T om Burson, 49, certainly is focused more on price and q uality when hes shopping. Burson says that if someone told him that a brand of j eans is made in sweatshops by 8-year-olds, he wouldnt buy it. But he says, overall, there is no practical way for him to trace where his pantsw ere made. I am looking for value, says Burson, a management consultant who lives in Ashburn, Va. I am not cal-l ous and not unconcerned about the conditions of the w orkers. Its just that when I a m standing in a clothing store and am comparing two p airs of pants, theres nothing I can do about it. I need the pants. In light of the recent disasters, though, some expertsa nd retailers say things are slowly changing. They say m ore shoppers are starting to pay attention to labels and w here their clothes are made. S wati Argade, a clothing designer who promotes her Bhoomki boutique in the Brooklyn borough of New York City as ethically fash-i oned, says people have been more conscious about w here their clothes come from.

She may weigh hardly anything, but she has a ferocious heart. She had been rescued and then adopted by my brother and his wife. She knew who loved her and didt let her size keep her from exercising her defenses. But, that ferocity had set in motion fear in my granddaughter that had her clinging to me like she was draped there. Before we arrived, I hadt been concerned about how Izzy and our grandchildren would get along. Theyre at home with their two pets two large Labrador retrievers. So I didnt think this pint sized bundle would be a problem. But, theyd never encountered such a wiry personality in a dog with a high-pitched bark to match. My granddaughter and I walked over to see the Christmas tree and wrapped presents on the other side of the doggy fence. Izzy was there in an instant barking and jumping, causing all kinds of commotion. Hayley leaped into my arms and whether or not I thought her too heavy to carry, she helped me lift her by crawling up and clinging for dear life. As I think back to that incident, it makes me think of whose arms I jump into when Im frightened or dismayed. When health concerns press in; when financial issues need resolving; when hurts or broken relationships threaten, where do I run to feel safe? It is good to have my husband, children, parents and other extended family and friends to turn to. But, my first thoughts and actions must always be to God. Through my relationship with Jesus Christ, I can cling to him and know that he will strengthen, uphold and sustain me. He will give me the wisdom I need and carry me through difficult times. Recently, one of my daughters-by-love passed ona verse of Scripture that had spoken to her. At a time when I needed it, there were Gods words assuring me again. She found the passage in Isaiah 41:10, NKJV, where it says, Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. And so I lean on God first as I turn to others who care and pray to the One to whomI cling. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a NewsSun correspondent. Leaning on God first Pause And Consider Jan Merop DearAbby: Im a 60year-old woman with grown children. My husband and I divorced after 30 years ofm arriage because he met someone at work. It was a quick process, and because I was in shock, I agreed to the terms of the divorcee ven though they werent in my favor. Two years ago I met a very nice man who treats me with respect and love. He wants a future for us,a nd so do I, but I cant get over one thing: He has two i llegitimate children one he didnt even know about and although the son is ana dult, he is still paying back support. I hate to sound like a snob, but this situation isnt OK with me. Im afraid I will always bring it up when I am angry. Im think-i ng maybe if we wait until the support obligation has e nded I might feel different, but who knows? Id appreciate some advice. Cant Get Over It in Georgia D earCant Get OverIt: I know very few people o ver 35 who dont carry some kind of baggage from past experiences. You dont h ave to approve of everything in his suitcase, but if you plan on having a longterm relationship with this very nice man, you willh ave to accept that he is fulfilling his legal obligation. Dragging the past into the present during an argument is an unhealthy e xpression of anger. Its guaranteed to drive a partner away. U ntil you can find a more constructive way to work out disagreements, yous houldnt marry anyone. D earAbby: My husband and I are in our 30s and have been married 15 years. O ver the past year we have been intimate only a bout once every three months. I tried to spice things up to see if I could get him interested, but he reacted byb ecoming upset, defensive and insinuating that I have a n unnatural fixation on sex. After some discussions, it t urns out hes having erectile dysfunction problems. I w as relieved to know it wasnt lack of interest, but now Im even more conf used by his unwillingness to see a doctor. It has been a couple of months since he confided his problem to me, but heh as done nothing to try and correct it. I offered to go to the doctor with him, have joint therapy I even tried being a little extra kinky to see if it would help. He still refuses to see a doctor or go to therapy. Imc ompletely stumped and unsure what else to do. Any advice will truly be appreciated. Needs Lovinin C alifornia DearNeeds Lovin: You have done everything you can do. Your husband may be embarrassed or afraid, which is why hes avoidingg oing to a doctor. Be supportive, but you n eed to ask him what he plans to do about this if anything because thea bsence of physical affection is unfair to you. DearAbby: My 14-yearold granddaughter Lana has unfriended me on Facebook twice during thel ast week. Her mother told me she h as been unfriended, too, because Lana doesnt want adults seeing what shesd oing on Facebook. How would you handle this? Nana in Ohio DearNana: Id suggest that Lanas mother tell herd aughter that if she wants to continue on Facebook, she had better keep Mom a nd Grandma as friends.

C M Y K ADDICTED? M etrore you addicted to your smartphone or mobile device? If so, rest assured that you are not alone. A survey conducted by SecurEnvoy found that roughly 66 percent of people are afraid of losing o r being separated from their phones. The condition has been dubbed nomophobia, or the fear of being out of contact with someone via mobilep hone. Data collected by the Pew Research Center has c oncluded nearly 85 percent of Americans own cell phones. A 2011 survey by mobile app company TeleNav, Inc., found that 40 percent of people with iPhones said theyd rather give up brushing their teeth for a week than go without their phones. Todays mobile devices are used f or everything from checking stock quotes to scouring for coupons to k eeping tabs on teenagers. Many rely on their phones for directions or to read reviews on local estab-l ishments. Many people have grown so accustomed to using m obile phones that their reliance has grown into an addiction. Who doesnt know the person who is c ompulsively checking e-mail, sending texts or updating their social media status via their phone? While there are many benefits to mobile phone usage, there are pit-f alls as well. Instances of distracted drivers injured or killed while using their mobile phones are well documented. Some even believe that relying too heavily on phones cani mpair a person's ability to focus and may intensify stress and feeli ngs of depression.
