Idalmy Rios and Debby Larkins face the same difficult struggle on a daily basis dealing with the grief of losing their sons to suicide. Larkins lost her son, David Hullitt, on April 23. Riosson, Giovanni Rios, took his life two years ago. The mothers have organized the Suicide Awareness Walk, which will begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 25 at Highlands Hammock State Park to honor their sonsmemories. Rios said she has been struggling to cope with the loss ever since she found her son in his home in March of 2011. s still very difficult, Rios said. It never crossed my mind that he would take his own life. If I had really thought he would do that, I never would have left him that day According to his mother, Giovanni suffered from depression and bi-polar disorder.

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING The good news is that April was full oft he proverbial showers. The bad news is that Lake Jackson apparently didnt get the message. After years of severe d rought for example, 1.16 inches of rain fell in February, less than half its historic average of 2.5 inches SFWMD reported the second wettest April since 1997. We are moving water said Greg Margasak, a s pokesman for SFWMD. Lake Istokpoga is right where it ought to be. Today( May 8) the water level is 38.92 feet, according to the r egulation schedule it should be at 39 feet. As of May 10, the aquifer has risen from 1.95 feet b elow the normal in February to slightly higher than 5 feet. U nfortunately, this good news has yet to reach Lake Jackson. We have a lot to make up, said county lake manage r Clell Ford. For example, the dam at the entrance to the Lake Josephine-Lake Jackson Canal is locked d own because the water is too low. O n top of the drought, Lake Jackson has its own disappearing water mysteries. L akeside residents raised an alarm regarding Lake J ackson about a year ago. As a result a combined agency study project was approved to take a much closer look at s eepage and getting up to date information. Nothing is quick in government, Ford said, but the cooperative funding proj-e ct is moving ahead. e are on the path to be a ble to answer those questions. We just need more information. And we need more rain. Childrens Museum to offer Discovery CampS EBRING The Childrens Museum of the H ighlands will once again offer summer Discovery Camp for elementary ages.

A nd yes, it is one of those m an-made holidays that s erve to enrich greeting card companies and retaile rs. The cynical side of me g ets that. S till, its a day that purports to honor moms. And I want to take the advantage of this column space to e ncourage you to do something for your mom today. B eing a mom isnt always easy. In the beginning, youre handed this life to love and take care of with nothing remotely resembling an owners manual. You muddle along, giving up sleep, alone time, and often sanity. Im not saying there arent perks to the job. You swiftly get addicted to your babys smile. Cuddle time with the little one is a gift. The love you feel gets you past the ickier parts of the job. But there is no question that challenges come with the good stuff. You survive the terrible 2s and get through the No! and Why? phases. If you work outside the home, you worry that you arent doing enough as a mom. If you are home full time, you worry that you are doing too much. Then they start school. A cord that ties you together is cut. This is one of many cords that tie a child and their mother. As the child grows, more and more cords are snipped, sometimes painlessly, sometimes with tears. Moms make mistakes. And often we are all too aware of them. Speaking for myself, I can look back and see where if I had to do it over again I would do it differently. Moms carry this burden. Guilt is often part of the job description. Then one day you wake up and the child is now an adult. They are moving out, going on, and the cord cut this time bleeds a little. It is hard to let go, to let the child go on, make their own way, which will usually entail at least some different paths then you w ould choose for them. But if you love them, y ou let them go. You pray for them, weep for them, cheer their successes andp rovide sympathy for thei r f ailures. And always, you try to be there for them when they need you. W hat do you give a mom? How do you thank h er for all that shes done, for the love she still feels for you, no matter how old you are or how far away you live? L et me help you out a little. You dont have to spend a lot of money. You dont need to buy her jewelry or an iPad or even flowers (Im not saying you cant do these things,j ust that you dont have to). You dont even have to go o ut and get her a card. What does a mom want? Mom wants to know that the years she invested in raising you and caring fory ou mattered. That she did something good. That despite the mistakes she made, someone appreciates the fact she did the best shec ould. How do you show that? It can be as simple as a phone call. Or if you can, a hug and a Thanks, Mom. This Mothers Day, let your mom know you appreciate the job she undertook raising you. It could well make her day. And dont wait. My own beloved mom passed away 13 years ago. I can no longer tell her how much her love means to me. I wish I could. Let your mom know how much she means to you while you still can. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

In 2008, a man cramped and drowned while swimming over a deep hole left by decades old dredging. In response, the cityd eclared the beach unsafe and ordered it a no-swim zone. T he hole is now filled, the beach safe once again and the city managed to get the job done in only five years. Thats notr eally a compliment, despite the bureaucracy and money involved. W e still wonder why, instead of closing the beach altogether, the city didnt just post Deep hole! Danger! Dont swim here! This means you! signs to mark the area, and let the community continue enjoying the lake. B e that as it may, the dredge hole became a danger in the first place because Lake Jackson has bigger problems. The lake appears to be losing water and shrinking. The dredge hole, while well docu-m ented, was never dangerous before because it lay in water well over anyones head. For years now, however, Lake Jackson is only knee deep for dozens of yards offshore, meaning non-swimming waders were at risk. H omeowners alerted city, county and state agencies regarding their concerns a bout falling water levels in 2012. Despite rain, homeowners insisted, Lake Jackson kept losing water. I n response, the government agencies gathered to hold a series of public meeti ngs. They listened to complaints and witnessed for themselves changes in water levels and shore lines. Congressman Tom Rooney took a tour to see for himself. As a result of the meetings, a multi-step, cooperative funding project was approved to study Lake Jackson and Little Jackson more closely. The countys lake manager and scientists with the Southwest Florida Water M anagement District say that a long drought has greatly impacted area water basins and aquifer for the worse. The area needs above average amounts of rain to get b ack normal. At the same time, the experts agree t here are anomalies regarding water retent ion in both Lake Jacksons that need to be examined. This puts home and boat own-e rs in the uncomfortable position of having t o be patient. It is one thing, however, to understand the situation in the abstract. Its another to look out the window and see your tax-burd ened boat dock standing on dry land. S adly, there is nothing to be done but wait for data to be collected and analyzed. Patience is difficult, but sometimes its the only choice Al ong with the rest of the community, we celebrate the reopening of City Pier Beach on Lake Jackson tos wimming. When executives of corporations are caught aiding and abetting criminal behavior of their employees, the executives are prosecuted and the businesses are destroyed. Its time to do the same with the Department of Education. The DOEs unconscionable high-stakes testing through Bushs No Consultant Left Behind and Obamas Slog To The Bottom have produced millions of dollars for consultants, tedious hours of data training for teachers who would be more effective actually teaching and compelled hundreds of teachers to cheat for profit or survival. At least 178 teachers and principals are involved. Superintendent Beverly Hall is being prosecuted as the ringleader, allegedly raking in half a million dollars in bonuses for excellence in academic achievement. That achievement was changing the answers on studentsCRCTtests to reap millions for her district. The 65-count indictment accuses Hall and 34 others of racketeering along with other crimes including theft by taking, making false statements or writings, influencing witnesses or false swearings. Not all of the teachers involved were necessarily greedy opportunists working the system created by the DOE. As reported in the Atlanta Journal Constitution, one of the teachers said she was afraid of retaliation if she didnt play along, saying Halls district was run like the mob. Boss Lady Hall was a superstar of the Obama DOE, hosted at the White House by Secretary of Education Arne Duncan as 2009 Superintendent of the Year. The Atlanta teachers cheating scandal is only one of many. What makes it unusual is that the district attorney chose to prosecute the ring. Where there is no prosecution, there is no crime. Columbus, Ohio, students who blew the whistle on teachers who gave them test answers were ignored and a teacher who supported the studentsaccusations said the principal took away her classroom piano, unaccountably locked her room and took other actions that led her to take a disability leave. According to the L.A. Times, she said other teachers and many parents are convinced that the coaching occurred, in part because principals who show improvement get cash rewards of as much as $1,000. An investigation is underway in Washington, D.C. where big money bonuses followed alleged school test improvements. Claims of cheating have surfaced all across the country from West Virginia to Los Angeles. Potentially thousands of teachers have aided and abetted the federal government in robbing children in the poorest of school districts from an education that could lift them out of poverty. There would be no opportunity for these crimes without the corrupting influence of the Department of Education. If the department was to be eliminated as a cabinet position and the organization of educators was returned to an association instead of such a political entity, there would be no DOE to exert such influence and corruption. You may ask, Dont we need the DOE? Why? It was created by President Jimmy Carter in return for the 1976 endorsement by teachersunions. Its budget has grown to about $78 billion a year and seems to reward administrators and consultants more than teachers. But what of poor districts that need money? Create a system wherein districts apply and compete for federal largess based on need with no federal strings attached. Let the teachers teach and return control to the local school districts. Allow the principals and superintendents to find and implement meaningful ways to teach our children. The existence of topdown, high stakes testing larded with millions of dollars in bonuses for improved test scores provides the incentive for criminally-minded administrators and teachers, demonstrating to your child that the majority of honest teachers are chumps. This model also puts too many honest teachers in fearful survival mode, either cheating to save their jobs under a greedy, tyrannical administrator or to save their jobs due to test results of slacker students. The very existence of the DOE and its top-down meddling with your children is a corrupting influence that needs to end.

C M Y K wondering if you can get t hrough everything and push beyond what you thought were your limits is really a good feeling for people. O bstacle course races have been around pretty much since the dawn of civilized society; the ancient Greeks had a race called the Stadion, where runners ran naked around a track covered with obstacles. The current trend in obstacle racing started a few years ago, when elite athletes started looking for new challenges, ones without the joint-jarring pain of longdistance running or the cost of triathlons. The Spartan Race, created in 2005 by seven ultra athletes and a Royal Marine, was one of the first major obstacle course races, and The Warrior Dash and Tough Mudder races werent far behind. Now there are over 50 races and series across the United States, from the difficult, fire-and-electricity types to entertainment-slanted ones like the Run for Your Lives 5K, where participants are chased by zombies. s really taken off in the past three years or so, said James Villepigue, co-owner of one event called The Survival Race, and author of the Obstacle Race Training Bible (Alpha, 2012 think were hitting critical mass now with races popping up everywhere. Obstacle course races are all based on the same basic principles testing competitorslimits in unique ways but there is a wide variety of distances and types of obstacles. Many, like The Survival Race and Warrior Dash, are more family-oriented, with shorter distances and obstacles that arent too punishing, such as climbing walls and cargo nets, going through mud pits, scrambling up and over shipping containers sometimes with a net in between and running through tires like prospective professional football players do at the NFLcombine. The difficult obstacle course races are run over longer distances and have more challenging obstacles, such as climbing ropes, carrying heavy objects like tires and sandbags, and crawling under barbed wire. The Tough Mudder races, arguably the most difficult in the genre, feature up to 25 obstacles along courses that c over 10 or more miles, including a plunge into a dumpster filled with icew ater and a sprint through fire. The series, which haso ver 50 events in several countries, also has the shocking obstacles: live wires carrying up to 10,000 volts of electricity hanging in a tunnel that runners have to go through, and a crawl through frigid water with more live wires hanging above. But even some of the toughest races have a range of distances and challenges. The Spartan Race series, which has three dozen races in Canada and the United States this year, includes four distances, from 3 to 26 miles, and many other races include shorter versions and kid runs. Of course, there are always those athletes who want the ultimate challenge, so for them theres the Spartan Death Race, which last 48 hours, and the Worlds Toughest Mudder, an invitation-only race that lasts 24 hours. Whatever the distance or d ifficulty of the obstacles, these races require a decent level of fitness. Villepigue has been a personal trainer for over 20 years and gets his clients ready for races with workouts that focus more on time than a certain number of repetitions. He gears workouts toward the movements theyll need during the race, like building upper-body strength (to climb ropes), planking exercises that include dragging the lower body (for mud pit crawls), and running up and walking down steep hills.

C elentano is focusing on a more military and first responders feel for this upcoming mud run since the event will be held on Memorial Day weekend, and the armory is the perfect place for that.W ith the go-ahead from the higher ups in Tampa and St. Augustine, Celentano h as gained much support from National Guard members and others. I looked at multiple venues. I was flipping through one of my workout books and I just saw an ad for Warrior D ash and saw that it is nationally sponsored by the National Guard (and light bulb went off. I just called up the National Guard and ran the idea by them, Celentano said. It was no easy task, but two months later Celentano had secured the site for h er fourth Dirty Dozen, which has been h eld at Sebring International Raceway since its inception. Eleven sponsors have joined the movement, including returning main sponsors Crossfit Sebring, Golds Gym, Budweiser and Alan Jay. New sponsors such as Don Joses and Big Sky Builders a re all working together to help create a unique course with new obstacles, challenges and tasks. Using raw materials from the armory as pieces of the challenge, Celentano h as transformed the run into a more challenging and dirtier event. This place is going to have a lot more mud. At the Race track we had that s ugar sand so it didnt get that muddy. W ell, we wont have that problem here. Were using all kinds of things this time expired missiles as hurdles; there are 12 shipping containers that participants will have to climb over; weve dug rabbit holes under the armory fences near the groves; there will be four huge mudh oles. s just going to be better C elentano said. People are very happy with the venue change. Theres plenty of space for the sponsors to advertise and its in a b etter location.

G irls Night Out A ssociated PressWASHINGTON The Federal AviationA dministration will keep open for now the 149 control towers at small airports that were slated to close as the result of governmentwide automatics pending cuts imposed by Congress, the Transportation Department said Friday. The towers, which are operated by contractors for the FAAat low-traffic airports, had been scheduled to close June 15. They will now remain open at least through Sept. 30, the end of the federal budget year, the department said in a statement. Abill hastily passed by Congress last month to end air traffic controller furloughs also makes enough money available to keep the towers open, the statement said. The bill gave the FAAauthority to shift $253 million from accounts with unspent funds to keep controllers on the job. The furloughs at all FAAoperated airport towers and air traffic control facilitiesc aused widespread flight delays across the country for nearly a week before Congress stepped in. FAAofficials have previo usly said they needed at least $200 million to eliminate the need for furloughs. The bill didnt require the FAAto spend the remaining funds on keeping towers at small airports open, but lawmakers said they anticipated the agency would use the money that way. The FAAwill also put $10 million toward reducing cuts and delays in its program to move from a radar-based air traffic control system to one based on satellite navigation, the statement said. Another $11 million will go to partially restore the support of infrastructure in the national airspace system, the statement said. While the decision gives the small airports a temporary reprieve, FAAofficials wills till be under pressure to find ways to further cut spending in next years budget. The FAAs initial decision to close the airport towers seto ff an intense lobbying campaign to keep them open by airport operators, the communities where the airports are located and members of Congress with an airport in their district or state. The broad coalition of communities, airports, air traffic controllers, aviation system users and members of Congress that has emerged in recent months united in the fight to keep contract towers open is a testament to the important role these facilities play in enhancing the safety and efficiency of the nations aviation system, J. Spencer Dickerson, executive director of the U.S. Contract Tower Association, said. Control towers at 149 small airports to stay open

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWhile New Years came and went nearly five months ago, for a community newspaper sports writer, the year just came to an end. When Sebring track star Taylor Tubbs crossed the finish line in second place in the 1,600-meter run at the FHSAA3AState Track Finals on the night of Friday, May 3, thus closed out the year for high school athletics in Highlands County. And while it was a Blue Streak that ended it on a very high note, it turned out to be quite a year for the Green Dragons of Lake Placid. Five different Dragon teams claimed district championships this year, to go with two district runners-up. Avon Park saw both its volleyball and boys basketball teams earn district crowns, as did Sebring in girls tennis and boys track and field. The Streaks also saw district runners-up from boys soccer, cross country and baseball, along with the Lady Streaks of the softball field. But it was Lake Placid that stood out with miraculous runs to titles that was unprecedented in school history. The fall seasons werent overwhelming, but saw the Dragons making some strides, as football went 2-3 in District 6-4Aplay. And while the volleyball team came up short in its bid for a seventh straight district title, it was a very young, predominantly inexperienced varsity squad that gained momentum and came together as the season went on. And in the end, there they were again, in the district title game, where they fell to a strong Lady Red Devil team. Things got rolling in the water, where the Lake Placid boys and girls swim teams continued their dominant runs of district championships. Into the winter season it went, which is where things really began to heat up, with the girls soccer team qualifying for the state playoffs with a secondplace district finish. And not only did the Lady Dragon basketball team win their district title and qualify for the playoffs, they took two dominant wins to reach the Class 4A Elite Eight. Lead by senior point guard and Southern Miss signee Alex Coyne, Lake Placid took down the Academy of the Holy Names by a 51-37 score in the regional quarterfinals and then reached the regional finals by crushing the Tampa Catholic Crusaders 63-39. And just as that remarkable season was coming to an end with a loss to Dunbar, the spring seasons were starting up and would see two more district wins. After some early season struggles against tough competition, the Lady Dragons of the tennis courts soon reaped the benefits and saw their wins being to mount.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Most athletes struggle for that perfect ace serve in tennis and Special STARS athlete Mac Smith has spent years trying to master his technique. With the racket under his left arm and the tennis ball in his right hand, Smith, 57, lines up behind the service line. He places the ball down on the ground so he can pull the racket out from under his arm with his right hand. Ill show you, he proudly said. Smith then bends down with the racket in his right hand and picks up the ball with two fingers from his right hand. He tosses the ball up and slams it into the service box. I did it! he screamed. Smith his limited use of his left hand but he has never let that slow him down in playing any sports. He plays softball in a similar way by using his one good hand. No one showed him how to serve that way, he just developed the technique on his own. He used to bounce the ball and hit it to serve but he changed his technique this year and has great success at it. I have learned that you never tell Mac that he cant do something, Special Special STARS host tennis competition See STARS, Page B3 By ANDREWSELIGMAN Associated PressCHICAGO LeBron James was off target for most of the night and Dwyane Wade was a nonfactor. Somehow, that did not spell doom for the Miami Heat. S omehow, they managed to squeeze out another win and take a 2-1 lead over the Chicago Bulls in their Eastern Conference semifinal series. Thats because Chris Bosh and Norris Cole came up big, and James came on strong down the stretch to lead the Heat to a 104-94 victory on Friday night. James scored 25, Bosh added 20 points and 19 rebounds, and the Heat did enough at the end to pull this one out after delivering the most lopsided playoff win in franchise history in the previous game. Shaking off a shove to the court that earned Nazr Mohammed an ejection and James an accusation of flopping from Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau, the four-time MVPcame through by scoring 12 points in the fourth quarter. Cole matched his postseason career high with his second straight 18-point performance, and the Heat pulled out a tight win after blasting the Bulls 115-78 on Wednesday. Nothing is going to be easy in this series, coach Erik Spoelstra said. Tonight, we didnt play particularly well and a lot of that was due to Chicago. There was a lot of ebb and flow to the game until we got it going in the fourth quarter This time, Chicago refus ed to go quietly. Never mind that the Bulls w ere coming off the worst playoff loss in franchise histor y. P ut aside that the ailing Luol Deng and injured Kirk Hinrich (calf lined, not to mention Derrick Rose, and the Bulls had to go without Mohammed after he was ejected. In the end, it was the Heat grinding out the victory. ou cant win a championship being pretty and shiny, Bosh said. Youre going to have to get dirty. Youre going to have to play physical. Youre going to have to dive on the floor. Youre going to have to do things that are extremely tough. I think people forget just two years ago we were a halfcourt, grind-it-out kind of team that was trying to beat you down. Just because weve moved to more of a free-flowing offense, were more spread a little bit, that doesnt mean that we are just a runand-gun team. The Heat prevailed on a night when James was off target most of the way, hitting just 6 of 17 shots and even getting blocked on a layup by Nate Robinson in the third quarter, and Wade attempted just seven shots. But James and Cole hit two big 3-pointers, Bosh perked up after two quiet games, finishing one rebound shy of the club playoff record, and Miamis bench outscored Chicagos 36-8.

C M Y K STARS Coordinator Cindy Marshall said. He amazes me every time and I am so proud of his determination to participate. He just wants a chance to do everything like everyone else. I love giving him the opportunity to suceed in these sports. In addition to improving his serve, Smith teamed up with his housemate John Smith in doubles to learn more about the game. Mac started out in skills but was ready to move ontog ame action this year. Special STARS athletes competed in tennis on Saturday, May 4, at South Florida State College. There were 29 athletes with disabilities who competed either in skill levels or doubles on the courts. They practiced for two weeks with volunteers. In doubles competition, the athletes played one set. Robert Collier, of Lake Placid and Nicole Lewis, of Sebring, teamed up to beat Eva Monk and Shawn Squires, both of Sebring. The game score was 7-5. Elizabeth Jordon, of Sebring, and Katie Gibson, of Avon Park, teamed up to beat Mac Smith and John Smith, both of Sebring. Their game score was 6-1. The skill level is designed to help teach the fundamentals of the game to players. They are then tested on each skill such as volleys, serves and ground strokes. The players are matched up against others who have similar abilities and placed in heats. Winners in Heat 1 were Francesca DiMeglio, first; Ilana Levy, second; Annie Horn, third; Beth Horn, fourth; Becky Anders, fifth; and Ronnie Gladson, sixth. Winners in Heat 2 were Maria Rivera, first; Cole Germaine, second; Jackie Furry, third; Penny Holder, fourth; Fred Moore, fifth; and Linda Decker, sixth.

Those two guys were the reason we won. Carlos Boozer led Chicago with 21 points. Robinson and Jimmy Butler each scored 17. Joakim Noah added 15 points and 11 rebounds, and M arco Belinelli had 16 points, but the Bulls couldnt pull this one out. They were within 85-83 when Cole scored on a finger roll with about four minutes left and Miami started to take control from there. James answered a 3-pointer by Belinelli with one of his own, and after Boozer hita jumper for Chicago, Cole buried another 3 for the Heat to make it 96-88 with 1:48 remaining. Finally, the Heat could breathe a little easier. Playing in Chicago for the first time since their 27game win streak ended there, the Heat got all they could handle. The Bulls made it clear early on they were going to put up a fight, and that hadn othing to do with all the pushing and shoving. Yes, there was plenty of that again. A fter Noah and Taj Gibson got ejected in Game 2 things got tense early in t his one. There was Miamis Chris Andersen landing on a driving Robinson late in the first quarter, and Noah giving the Heat forward a shove while he was still down. Things reached a boiling point early in the second. With James dribbling upcourt, Mohammed said he reached in because he wanted to take a foul and stop a potential break. Their arms got tangled. Mohammed fell, and when he got up, he gave James a hard shove to the court. Both players picked up technicals. Mohammed got tossed with 9:29 left in the half, saying he didnt deserve it. He did, however, point the f inger at himself for delivering that shove, but he also insinuated that James flopped. I mean you saw the play Mohammed said, laughing. Thibodeau came right out and said James did just that. From my angle, I just s aw a guy basically, flop, Thibodeau said. And Im going to leave it at that. James sat there for a few m oments before his teammates helped him up. H e opted not to retaliate. Im here to play basketb all, he said. For the Bulls, the ejection forced an already shorthanded team to get by without another player. Thats the way our league is now, Robinson said. Its not like back in the day wh en Isiah Thomas and guys damn near had fights back in the day and nobody use to get kicked out. But youve got to play through it. NOTES: Gibson said he was not surprised the league fined him $25,000 for the outburst toward an official that led to his ejection from Game 2. He also sounded relieved that the punishment from the league on Friday was not worse. I knew I was going to get hit, he said. was just hoping it wasnt a suspension, but I deserved (the fineat Scottie Pippen got a loud ovation when he presentedt he game ball before the opening tip. ... Has this been a physical series? Despite all the pushing and shoving in t he first two games, Heat F Udonis Haslem said before t his one that idea was being overexaggerated. He added, Everybody wants to say its physical, but the Clippers and Memphis just got over a physical series, and everybody thought that was fun to watch. Now this is a physical series. Its just two teams playing at a high level, and thats it.

Heat pull away late, lead series for the district tournament, they were playing their best tennis and came away with the title. Things played out similarly on the baseball field, with Lake Placid starting out slow and building momentum as the season went on. The team last lost in the regular season on March 26, 8-2 at Hardee, and atoned for it two days later with a 3-0 win. From there, it was seven m ore wins in a row during the month of April, up through the 11-0 district championship win over DeSoto on April 25.

C M Y K B y DAVID BAUDER APTelevision WriterNEWYORK Sean Hayes, Parker Posey, Minnie Driver and Gillian Andersonw ill have prominent roles in new television series that NBC has decided to air next season. The network said Thursday that it had ordered five new series, in advance of its annual schedule announcement Sunday, when it will detail where the rookie and returning shows will be placed on the schedule. NBC also said that it has renewed Parks and Recreation, the comedy that gets much critical respect but generally poor ratings. Four sitcoms are being canceled, the network said: Up All Night, Guys with Kids, Penn and Whitney The long-struggling network had a strong fall this season behind NFLfootball and The Voice but tumbled in midseason and recorded some of its worst ratings ever. NBCs biggest hope for next season is its comedy starring Michael J. Fox, which was announced in the winter. Hell play a sportscaster with Parkinsons disease who is returning to work, much like Fox is an actor with Parkinsons who is returning to series television. Hayes, the former Will & Grace actor, stars as a gay divorced dad in Sean Saves the World, juggling work responsibilities with raisinga 14-year-old girl. The series, one of three new comedies NBC announced Thursday, is from Hayes production company and has the veteran sitcom hand James Burrows as an executive producer and director. P osey plays a divorced mom in The Family Guide, with an 11-year-old son who had always been his blind fathers guide but isr eplaced by a guide dog named Elvis. The third comedy ordered by NBC is an adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel About a Boy. Actor Will Freeman is the ultimate man-child who bonds with the 11-year-old son of a needy, vegan single mom played by Driver. Brand-name producer J.J. Abrams (Lost, Alias already has Revolution on the NBC schedule. The network said it will also add Believe, about a young girl coming to grips with superpowers like levitation, controlling nature and predicting the future. Anderson, who made her name on The X-Files, is a featured actor on Crisis, about a bus full of high school students who are the children of Washington elite and are kidnapped. NBCs series pickups came a day after Fox announced the new series it will introduce next season. Networks used to try to keep such news a secret before a nnouncing their schedules to advertisers. (Those meetings are all scheduled for next week.) But word often leaks out beforehand, sos ome of the networks are trying to take control of that process this year.Later, Dawg: Randy Jackson leaving American IdolLOS ANGELES (AP Jackson out. Randy Jackson, the lone original American Idol judge, says he wont be returning to the Fox talent competition. o put all of the speculation to the rest, after 12 years of judging on American Idol,I have decided to leave after this season, Jackson said in a statement Thursday. I am very proud of how we forever changed television and the music industry The 56-year-old record producer and bassist called the experience a life-changing opportunity. He said hes leaving Idol to focus on his record label and other business opportunities. Jackson has served as a judge on all 12 seasons of Idol. He first appeared on the panel alongside Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul when the competition debuted in 2002, becomingf amous for his easygoing yo, dawg rapport with contestants. Jackson currently judges the show with pop royalty Mariah Carey, R&B diva Nicki Minaj and country star Keith Urban. His exit comes amid reports the entire panel w ill be replaced next season. Aspokeswoman for Fox and spokesman for Idol producer FremantleMedia declined to comment. R atings for Idol have plummeted this season. The show has been the most popular entertainment program in prime time for nine years running, but its likely Idol will lose that distinction this season. Its now regularly behind the NBC singing c ompetition The Voice in the weekly ratings. The current 12th season is set to conclude this week. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, May 12, 2013Page B5 church page; 5.542"; 7.1"; Black; church page dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 6 6 4 4 0 0 0 0 DR.

On Saturday, shell headl ine the annual McDonalds Gospelfest at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. Donnie McClurkin, Hezekiah Walker and CissyH ouston will be featured. But thats not the only event on Franklins weekend calendar. She also has a meeting about her upcoming biopic, which has been in thew orks for years. Franklin says shes heavily involved i n the project, including who will play her in the film. Front-runners includeJ ennifer Hudson and Tony winner Audra McDonald. I just try to come up with the names I feel are going to best present this, who are thep eople that will best present my biopic and what I have in mind, the 71-year-old singer said in an interview Thursday with TheA ssociated Press. AP: Whos going to be a part of the meeting about yourbiopic? Franklin: Mr. (Clive D avis has gotten in the group and Suzanne de Passe, who co-wrote Lady Sings the Blues.Taylor Hackford, who did ... Ray... and the William Morris agent andm yself. Those are the principals that will be meeting this w eekend. AP: What do you think about Audra McDonalds tarring in the film? Franklin: The question w here Audra is concerned is whether or not Audra can get i nto soul. That would be the question because she has the voice, she has a beautifuli nstrument. I just wonder how far she can get over into soul. AP: What about Jennifer Hudson? She has a lot ofs oul. Franklin: Jennifer would come up with some good things. AP: Anyone else? F ranklin: The rest would come out of the producers book. People that they want me to listen to that I may not know. A P: Some people are upset because Zoe Saldana is playing Nina Simone in that biopic and they dont believe she resembles Simone. F ranklin: I did know Nina and I would have liked to s ee someone with a little more of a likeness and hopefully played the piano. But Id ont know Ms. Saldanas work and Hollywood can do a lot of things in terms of changing your features and all of that. A P: What its like to perform forgospel fans? Franklin: Its just being me and back at home thats it. Just being back ont he old campground; thats how I was brought up. I came up in gospel. Like Johnnie Taylor used to say, Im an old gospel singer A P: What are you going to sing? Franklin: Im going to sing some things from Amazing Graceand then One Lord, One Faith, OneB aptism. AP: Are you working w ith Babyface on yournew album? Franklin: Clive (Davis h as talked to Face and to Danger Mouse about producing my new CD for RCA. And right now I am just waiting to hear from them tos ee exactly what they are going to do. AP: What sound do you want to take on? Franklin: Well, Im not p roducing it. Im just waiting to see what they come with. ... It should be good. As long as its good music. I love all music. Its got to bec onstructed properly. AP: I know youre a fan of Adele, and shes covered some of yoursongs. Would you everdo a duet with her? F ranklin: I think it would be good. ... She has some g reat material. I like her material. Shes a very fine writer. (Her songsv ery original and all very different. Music Q&A: Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin talks biopic, Gospelfest Aretha Franklin

C M Y K Bright blue in color, melodious in song, the eastern bluebird is a welcome visitort o backyards across much of the United States. Recently, thousands of concerned people have put up bluebird houses in an ongo-i ng recovery effort to ensure a future for the bluebird. Nesting from southern Canada to the southern U.S. border, and from the Rocky Mountains to the east coast, the bluebird migrates to winter habitat in the middle parts of eastern North America south into Mexico, the Gulf coast, and southern Florida. Two-thirds of the bluebirds diet is insects and other invertebrates; the remainder is wild fruits. Insects, include grasshoppers, crickets, katydids, beetles, earthworms, spiders, centipedes, and sow bugs. Fruits especially useful for winter food, when insects are scarce, are wild grape, dogwood, hawthorn, and sumac and hackberry seeds. Grassy areas with scattered hardwoods, including meadows, grazed pastures, yards, roadsides and grassed farmlands are ideal habitat for bluebirds. Mowed areas including golf courses, large lawns, and rights of way are also well used. Open grasses provide foraging habitat; scattered trees or fence posts offer the perches bluebirds use to spot and then swoop down on insects on or near the ground. The eastern bluebird is a cavity-nesting bird, but cannot make its own cavity. It relies on abandoned woodpecker cavities, open tops of rotted out stumps, and holes in wooden fence posts. Manmade wooden boxes are also readily accepted if they are designed and installed correctly. Nest boxes can be used to augment natural cavities in grassy areas that lack snags or natural cavities. A ccording to Melissa Mayntz in her About.com guide How to Attract Bluebirds/ Tips for Attracting Bluebirds to Your Backyard,t here are some fairly simple steps you can take to entice these blue beauties to your area: The key to attracting bluebirds is to meet these birds specialized needs for food, water, shelter and nesting sites. Food: Bluebirds consume a wide variety of insects, particularly during the nesting season when hatchlings need protein for adequate growth. Avoiding insecticide use is critical for giving these birds a healthy food source, and backyard birders can augment the natural insect supply with mealworms in ground or platform feeders. Bluebirds will also eat a wide variety of berries, such as sumac, holly and elderberry, and adding these berry-producing shrubs to the yard will help create a bluebird-friendly landscape. Suet offered as crumbles or shreds can also be valuable for attracting bluebirds, particularly with insect or fruit blends. Water: Bluebirds require fresh, clean water for drinking and bathing, and a low basin with 1-2 inches of water is ideal for these thrushes. Moving water witha bubbler or small fountain will attract their attention more quickly, but choose a bird bath design that is largee nough to accommodate bluebird family flocks that may have a dozen birds all vying for a drink. Shelter: Bluebirds typic ally prefer mature, widely spaced trees, and they are less likely to visit a backyard with dense areas of foliage. Instead, choose just a few mature trees and opt for low ground cover surrounding open grassy areas to provide these ground-feeding birds security while foraging. Berry-producing shrubs that are a good food source are an excellent choice for plants that will do double-duty as food and shelter. Nesting sites: Bluebirds are cavity-nesting birds, and they will regularly nest in wooden bird houses of the appropriate dimensions, which should ideally be placed 4-7 feet above the ground in open areas. Putting out nesting materials such as pine needles and cotton scraps may attract bluebirds attention to the houses.

Assistant Park Manager Brian Pinson planned and initiated a major First Annual HabitatR estoration event that will carry on the April 22 legacy for many y ears to come. Pinson worked closely with Bill Parken, Ridge Rangers coordinator,F lorida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission, in s cheduling two public volunteer workdays to maximize results. Florida scrub-jay habitat restoration was the focus of this years effort. H ighlands Hammocks North Branch area is predominantly sand p ine scrub with an overstory of sand pines and an understory of dwarfed, shrubby oaks, saw pal-m etto, prickly pear cactus, and other scrub vegetation. It is comp rised of three management zones totaling 125 acres. The objective is to reduce the d ensity of sand pines and transform the acreage to an oak scrub that would draw families of scrub jays t o establish new territory and maintain breeding populations. A s scrub jays are communal, some jays assist the breeding pair with the care of nestlings and act as sentinels alerting the family group to the presence of predatorss uch as hawks, owls, and snakes. Optimal habitat must have low, uniform oak thickets for nesting in proximity to bare, open sandy patches for acorn-caching. The height of the oaks is low, 3 to 5 f eet from the ground, not exceeding 7 to 10 feet. Ideally, there should only be one or two taller pines between 15 to 20 feet in height per acre. These zones area lso targeted for prescribed burns, which will further enhance and improve the habitat for the jays and other wildlife species. Prior to Earth Day, quite serendipitously, Walker Memorial A cademy contacted the park requesting a volunteer project for students in need of completing Community Service hours required for college admission. SevenW alker high students and three instructors worked closely with Pinson and jump-started the restoration by working for three hours on April 19. They took down some 400 sand pines with hand saws and loppers. The following Friday, Pinson a nd a group of 13 Ridge Ranger volunteers picked up where Walker A cademy had left off. Pinson had also scheduled a major resource management exotic removal sprayd ay for all available park staff, which included Park Manager S teven Dale, four park rangers, the maintenance mechanic, two park service specialists, and the twoe xotic crew. The 10 park staff, armed with herbicide backpacks and loppers, s plit into two groups to treat areas in the park where two highly invas ive, non-native plants from Southeast Asia had begun to spread. Both Cogon grass and old world climbing fern can invade natural areas including habitatsw here threatened and endangered native plant species occur. Unchecked they blanket areas and pose serious management problems related to fire. Park staff worked through the morning into the early afternoon dispersing 42 gallons of herbicide. The final push occurredo n Saturday when 14 Lake Placid High JROTC members associated w ith the Ridge Rangers teamed up with 13 rangers and seven park staff. The JROTC downed 537s and pines. Working under the tutelage of t he Ridge Rangers, the unit is becoming adept and gaining valuable experience. The RidgeR angers, one of Floridas premier stewardship organizations, are masters with chainsaws and brush cutt ers. Their cumulative experiences f rom many Saturday mornings contribute to their success in working effectively as a team in the extreme heat and inhospitable prickliness of scrub. Collectively over the twod ays, Ridge Ranger volunteers and park staff removed a total of 7,487 sand pines. The combined total from all three workdays totaled an astounding 8,424 trees. 8,000 sand pines removed from Hammocks North Branch Courtesy photo Fourteen members of the Lake Placid High School ROTC worked to help down 537 sand pine trees at Highlands Hammock as part of an Earth Day scrub jay habitat restoration project at Highlands Hammock.

C M Y K Ill never forget the day t hey placed my son, Chris, into my arms. Swaddled tightly in a baby blanket, this tiny bundle fit securely in my embrace and went straight to my heart. He had dark hair and l ooked at me with one eye open while the other r emained closed. It had been a long and arduous journey from the safety of my womb to my arms for him and for me. Profound joye mbraced me. Every new mother knows what Im talking about whether natural birth or adoption. S ome, like my niece, are awaiting that special moment; while still others long for it with all their hearts; but, remain waiting. But, even in the waiting a mothers heart is present in every woman and can overflow to the child closest at the moment. Perhaps it is through church, Sunday school, Vacation Bible School, Scouts, school, other clubs and activities. Whenever there are children in our midst, we should let our mother hearts enfold each one with love, affection and e ncouragement. Children may at first be shy with us. But, w hen we get down t o their level, show that we care and listen to what they have to say, amazingly, the shyness dis-a ppears. Eventually, these little ones run and throw their arms around us. Children know genuine love when they experiencei t. Sparkling eyes and eager voices respond to truth displayed through love. Recently I wrote about helping a child to walk in Gods steps, but in their own shoes. In other words, each child is unique with a specific personality and gifts given by God. And as parents, educators and anyone in childrens ministry, we need to encourage their individuality. However, each one still n eeds to know the Lord Jesus as his personal Savior and Lord because the Bible teaches that from birth we have a sin nature that wants its own way. So from the earliest o pportunity, introduce a loving God to children through m usic, stories and prayer. Help them to see their need of a Savior so they may walk with him on the path of truth from their youth.InE phesians 6: 4, NKJV, parents are reminded, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonitiono f the Lord. On Mothers Day Im thankful my mom (and dad did this for me and my brother, as well as other godly women whom the Lord placed in my path. When mothers see their children walking with the Lord, their joy knows no bounds.

Aries should watch out for the irresistible DearAbby: My partner and I have been together 23 years and his parents have embraced me as one of theiro wn. Afew years ago, we bought his mother a beautiful diamond cocktail ring for Mothers Day. Shes now 84, and when she passes on, Idl ike that ring back to have it turned into a ring for my partner. Its a gesture Im sure would please him, and I hope his mother as well. I believe shes leaving herj ewelry to her granddaughter, which is fine. But this p articular ring will mean so much if I turn it into a ring for her son. W ould it be tacky for me to request this of Mom if I t ell her why? I dont want to offend anyone, and I know the person who inherits her jewelry will probably pawn or sell it anyway. (Id alsol ike to keep it on the down low so my partner doesnt f ind out until the ring is given to him.) What do you think, Abby? Phil in Pennsylvania DearPhil: I think what y ou have in mind is beautiful, and I cant imagine why your partners mother wouldo bject if you raise the subject. Estate planning is a fact of life. However, if she doesntw ish to change her will, and you think theg randdaughter is likely to pawn the ring anyway, you could offer to buy it from the granddaughter when the time comes. DearAbby: I am no a dvice columnist, but may I offer a few wise words to future brides? I have been married for 25 years and have never had an a rgument with my motherin-law. Never! My mother gave me some valuable advice before my wedding that Id like to pass along.S he said, Always respect the woman who made the m an you love. I never forgot it, and my MILhas always been wel-c ome in my home for as long as she wishes. If we h ad any differences, a respectful dialogue was opened right away espe-c ially if it concerned our kidseducation. We have enjoyed shopping, eating, cooking, parties, caring for newborns and family moments together fora s long as I can remember. Sadly, she is now frail and can no longer travel as much as she once could. The women who made our h usbands deserve all the respect we can offer them because if we are happy as wives, it is thanks to all of them. Simone in San Francisco D earSimone: Your mother is an intelligent lady, and s o are you for having taken her advice to heart. Because few people are in totala greement about everything, there is much to be learned w hen adults can air their opinions respectfully. This is true of all human relationships.

C M Y K Page B12News-SunSunday, May 12, 2013www.newssun.com Living Prepare meals in advanceThe days of yore when mom cooked all the meals are largely a thing of the past, as nowadays both parents tend to share cooking duties. Moms can cut down on the time it takes to serve up family meals on weeknights by cooking meals in advance. Think of dishes you can prepare on the weekends and then freeze until youre ready to serve. Or purchase a slow cooker that slowly cooks your meal all day while youre out and about. By the time you and your family arrive home at night, dinner will be ready and you will have more time to relax after a long day. Stay involved with your childs schoolMany mothers find staying active with their children's school is a great opportunity for them to bond with their kids and keep abreast of developments at their school. Such involvement can be minimal, such as attending a monthly luncheon with kids or agreeing to be a chaperone on one or two class trips per year. Such events are typically scheduled months in advance, so you should have ample time to arrange a break from the office without neglecting your professional responsibilities. Source:Metro Services Page design: Scott Dressel Tips for working momshe responsibility of raising a family while maintaining a career is never easy. Working moms often wish there were more time in the day to spend with their families or get more done at the office. While theres no way women can add a 25th hour to their days, there are ways to manage your time more effectively so you can get around to doing those things you never seem to have the time to do.T Get a head startP erhaps no time of day is more hectic for a working mother than the morning, when she must get ready for w ork while getting the kids ready for school and ensuring they have a good breakfast. Some moms even drop their youngsters off at school. Thats a lot of tasks to tackle before you even sit down in your office to answer the first e-mail or listen to the mornings first voice-m ail. To make mornings less frantic, get a head start the night before by laying out the next days clothes for you and encouraging your kids to do the same. Preparing lunches, packing a gym bag and even setting the coffee maker can all be done the night before to save you time and make mornings more relaxing. Share the responsibilitiesWhile the days of the single-income household may be a thing of the past, many of the conventions of those days remain. Women may still feel the responsibility to cook family meals, clean up aftert he children and make it to all of their children's sporting events or other school-related events. But those responsibilities should be shared so women can ensure they're giving both their careers and families the attention each deserves. Devise a sched-u le where both parents tackle such responsibilities equally so each parent knows when they have some wiggle room. For example, if your husband routinely cooks on Tuesdays, then you know you won't need to rush home on Tuesday night and you might be able to stay at the office a little later to work on a project or catch up on work. Such sharing and scheduling can considerably reduce the stress of juggling a family and a career. Take advantage of work-from-home policiesTake advantage of work-from-home policies. As technology has advanced, many companies have become much more lenient with regard to employees working from home. If your company allows you to work from home, even if it's only once per week, then take advantage of that offer. This can provide more time with your kids, it will likely save you money on childcare, and you are certain to appreciate the opportunity to skip your daily commute, even if it is only once a week or a couple of times per month. Exercise dailyJuggling a family and a career is often stressful, and stress can have a very adverse effect on your health. Women with high stress levels are more likely to suffer from depression, anxiety and cardiovascular disease. But the American Psychological Association notes the positive impact of exercise as a means to alleviating stress, citing studies that have shown that physically active people have lower rates of anxiety and depression than people who are sedentary. It's easy to become irritable when stressed, and no mother wants to be irritable in the presence of her children. Incorporating exercise into your daily routine is a great way to alleviate the stress of juggling a family and a career, and you can even incorporate your family into your exercise routine, going for nightly walks after dinner or playing with your children in the yard. Catch up on work o ver the weekendThe weekends are a time when many working mothers look to unwind, but spending an hour or two catching up on work on a Saturday or Sundaym orning is a great way to make the week a little less hectic. As the week progresses toward the weekend, set aside certain tasks that arent urgent but can be easily addressed in an hour or so over the weekend. This frees up time during the week tot ackle larger projects and might even allow you to leave your office earlier on weekdays.
