C M Y K Qu ality water is essential,but years of drought and growing demand have seriously depleted Central Floridas water resources. Lake and canal levels have fallen leaving many docks and boat housesh igh and dry. Even as significant rain fell in April and the opening days of May,recovery a ppears to be slow. The collection and flow of water in F lorida has always been subject to cycles of natural extremes from flooding to drought. These difficult conditions have been impacted and interrupted by human intervention,complicating matters even more.The basicsAs you learned in elementary s chool,in a process scientists call evapo-transpiration,water evaporates from the earths surface,condenses into rain clouds and returns to the ground as rain. Some of the rainwater evaporates again to continue the cycle.

We have to continue to protect our right as farmers and do all that we can to educate people,said Scott Kirouac,president of the Highlands County Farm Bureau.

Grimsles awards included the Florida Library Association 2012 LegislativeAward and the TBLC Library Advocacy Award. Grimsely,a longtime library advocate,acknowledged that role that libraries play in providing the public with free use of computers for emailing and research, the ability to check out the best-selling novels,the ability to read e-books in the librariescollections,and the interlibrary loan of other librariescollections in the Heartland Library Cooperative. Don Elwell,the library liaison from the Highlands County Board of County Commission,introduced Parker. The TBLC is a library cooperative serving 123 member libraries in Central Florida. It provides training,virtual reference, and group purchases. Parker,a library advocate at state and national levels in the establishment of the ERate program,helped Florida libraries obtain broadband services and networks. Mary Carlton Myers, Sebrings librarian and head librarian of the Heartland Library Cooperative,also welcomed to the awards ceremony:Debbie Worley, Library Advisory Board chairwomen; Mary Beth Isaacson,Avon Park librarian; Mary Booher,Glades County librarian; Maria Chenique,Lake Placid librarian; Patti Lang, Hardee County librarian; Kresta King,Okeechobee County librarian; and other distinguished guests,and many library volunteers. Library users today,from elementary school age through retired grannies, expect a sophisticated level of library services to be provided to them as a matter of course. This takes a lot of planning and fiscal resources. Myers said,I couldnt do this without our many wonderful library volunteers. They provide a great service to the community. Library volunteers assist libraries by checking in and shelving books,conducting story times,and selling used books in the Friendsbookstores.

C M Y K Americans need tok now their IRS inflicts pain fairlyA mericans will never love the Internal Revenue Service. But we need to be able to trust the outfit to deal a straight hand to all players. Clearly that wasnt the c ase when some IRS officials decided that groups with tea p arty or Patriot in their names would get special scrutiny and possibly thes low roll when seeking tax-exempt status under the l aw. This is at the least a big embarrassment to the Obama administration and Democrats, and a politicalg ift to Republicans. Political fallout may have a long reach, but the need to s top such an abuse of power cuts across party lines. John Marshalls oft-quoted m axim, The power to tax involves the power to destroy, has many corollari es, including the power to d elay or audit is the power to deny or hobble. Thats a power that any g overnment must apply within the law, with no favor for supporters and no prejudice against opponents. Naive? N o, essential to good government and the trust on which r epresentative democracy depends. E very organization that applies for tax-exempt status should have to jump through t he same hoops and get the same treatment as every other organization. Meet the criteria, you qualify; fail to meet the criteria, you dont. It should not matter where you live on the political or ideological spectrum. (The whole b usiness of tax-exempt status for some nonprofits shouldb e on the table in tax reform, but thats a different subject.) The FBI is on the case. R ecent reports say that the special attention to tea p artiers wasnt limited to the field office in Cincinnati, but involved Washington, D.C., officials as well. T hose responsible need to answer for their actions prosecuted if theyve brokenl aws, fired if theyve broken trust. With no love lost b etween taxpayers and tax collectors, the IRS must maintain its reputation as ane qual opportunity affliction. An editorial from the Anchorage Daily News in Alaska.

Floridians, and the scientists at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, understand the importance of protecting the health our aquatic habitats, for their recreational value and to assure that the seafood we enjoy is safe to eat. The current rules that define Floridas human health criteria for surface waters are now more than 20 years old virtually ancient when compared to how quickly the world moves today. But after a decade of data collection, risk analysis, scientific peer review and public debate, the Department is moving forward with additional and refined surface water quality criteria. Protecting Floridas marine resources, especially as a source of food, is one of our most important roles as an agency, and we are moving forward with the best science available today. Historically, the Department has regulated only 36 pollutants related to human health. The Department is now proposing to almost double that number by adding 34 new contaminants to the list and updating criteria for 33 of the original 36 contaminants. These criteria cover pollutants in all types of waterbodies within the state rivers, lakes and coastal waters, both brackish and offshore, and consider Floridas most at-risk populations, including young children and pregnant women. These new criteria were considered April 23 by the Environmental Regulation Commission, and will be revisited the topic in the fall. The commission also approved the Departments proposed dissolved oxygen criteria to protect aquatic life. The Department has consulted continuously with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in developing human health criteria, but we have applied more stringent safeguards when calculating our final numbers. The end result: in a side-by-side comparison with EPAs standard approach, the Departments proposed criteria are more stringent in every single case. Because the health of our waterbodies is vital, the Department assembled the best and brightest to peer review and critique our standards. As a result, our scientific methodology has been endorsed by Floridas State Toxicologist from the Department of Health and other scientists who are experts in toxicology and risk assessment. These updates to our human health criteria would protect all Floridians including kids, expectant mothers and self-sufficient fishermen. The Department will also continue to collect data and incorporate emerging science so our standards keep pace in the future. My colleagues and I eat local seafood just like you and your family. It is essential that all of us have confidence that what we eat is safe. Fishing and shellfish harvesting will thrive if our rivers, lakes and coastal waters have strong standards to protect them and Floridas economy and our water-dependent culture will thrive right along with them. Drew Bartlett Director, Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration Florida Department of Environmental ProtectionVindictive punishment is showingEditor: Vindictive. Websters says vindictive means: 1. Revengeful in spirit; 2. said or done in ways as vindictive punishment. Mr. Obama has shown very serious streaks of vindictive punishment. 1. He has closed off the White House for Americans to tour what is rightfully theirs and given an elected person to the presidency this privilege to live in our house. What gives him the authority to shut down the tours of the White House? 2. He has reduced the number of airports the American people use by cutting back on the hours of air traffic controllers plus reducing the work force. This was all done because he did not get his way with sequestration. I believe Mr. Obama is a very vindictive person. The American people dont need that kind of a person to lead us. P.S. The U.S. Senate has corrected the reduction in air traffic controllers. They realized the potential for aircraft problems. Praise the Lord. Charles A. Marr Avon ParkIs socialist president responsible?Editor: Tucked away in an article in a metro daily newspaper the other day was this bit of good news: The U.S. government reported a surplus of $113 billlion for the month of April, the largest in five years and a sign of the nations improving finances. Of course, the conservative newspaper wouldnt want readers to notice this important item so they made it a teeny, little article. The story goes on to point out that economic growth and higher tax rates have contributed to keep this years budget deficit to be the smallest since 2008 (when Wwas destroying the economy). Since the beginning of the year the deficit is $488 billion while last year at the same time it was $720 billion. In another bit of good news, the stock market is at its highest level ever. Wonder if our socialist president had anything to do with this? Millie Grime Sebring IRS must stay out of partisan politics Don and I are frequent visitors to the Walt Disney World theme parks. In fact, like many, weve investedi n annual passes so we can go whenever we feel like it and not feel we have to cram the whole experience into a small amount oft ime. Weve learned little tricks to make our time more pleasant.Since its faster to get in the park if you dont carry a bag, I putm y wallet in a pocket instead of toting my purse ( and to be honest I dont want to keep track of a purse at a theme park any-w ay).We have apps on our phones that give us estim ated wait times on rides so we know which ones we have a shot at and which ones are a lost cause. Even with that weve d one our share of standing in line at Disney.With s ome of the more popular rides it appears impossible to avoid them.Some of ther ides we really enjoy (like Soarin at Epcot) we dont g et to go on very often because the lines are often horrendous. D isney tries to soften the blow by offering Fast Passes. AFast Pass is a t icket you can get that guarantees you entrance at a certain time and will greatly shorten your wait time. We have occasionally made use of the Fast Pass. However, with some of them ore popular rides, the passes go quickly, and we are faced with either staying at the park far later than we planned or not getting a pass at all. If we got there earlier, t his would be less of an issue. But I am not a morni ng person and getting me up and ready to go in the wee hours of the morning, especially a Saturday morning, isnt for the fainto f heart. Don is willing to brave it, but often he gets caught up in desk work and thus doesnt get around to rousing me until later int he morning. Thus we usually dont get to Disney early enough to combat the worst of the lines. According to an article someone shared with me at www.nypost.com, some rich moms have found another way to beat the long lines. The article alleges that these moms have hired disabled guidess o that their families can cut to the front of the lines. The guides arent cheap they run you $130 an hour, which comes to more than $1,000 for an eight-h our stint.One mom boasted in the article that w ith such a guide, they only waited one minute to get into the ride Its aS mall World, while others stood in line for 2 1/2 h ours. Disney lets disabled patrons those using a wheelchair or a motorized scooter to take up to sixp eople with them to a more convenient entrance. A pparently this often cuts down on wait times. In another report I found o n www.wftv.com, the company the Post article m entions, Dream Tours Florida, denied the allegations. Disney also weighedi n, calling the behavior unacceptable. My take? If its true, its a sleazy way to get around the whole long lines issue. I have no issue with the truly disabled getting special treatment. But abusing the privilege in this manner is just not right. N o one likes the long lines. But find another way to get through it, rich mom. Buy your kid a Gameboy or iPod to play while they wait. Have meaningful conversations.P eople watch. But dont teach your k ids that anything goes when it comes to getting what you want. Waiting in line wont kill them, or you. Ill see you there.

C M Y K According to Kirouac,the h ot topic item of immigration was discussed at length during the event. Legislators have been bombarded with information from farmersa nd farming organizations that is needed to create a clearer choice on what steps to take next regarding immigration reform. Its important for people to know that the bureau supports immigration reform, but it does not support amnesty,Kirouac said. Iti s vital to have an accessible and capable work force in the agriculture world.U nfortunately,history has proven that we do not have the domestic workforce tos upport the agricultural work load. T he agricultural field has always taken a lot of flack by citizens and other busi-n ess entities because of what Kirouac calls a misc onception. Comments and beliefs that immigrants are hired as cheap labor are untrue,according to Kirouac and many otherm embers of farm bureaus. It is the furthest thing f rom the truth that we pay cheap labor for immigrants and migrant workers.A ccording to the USDA recent statistics,the average f arm worker makes $10 an hour,which is above minimum wage. We get beat up a ll the time by people saying we are taking away jobs from the American people, but the truth is domestic people wont take thesej obs. They wont go out there and pick tomatoes and pick oranges. Kirouac stated that the Heartland Workforce direc-t or reported just more than 1,000 agricultural-based j obs in Highlands and surrounding counties that haver emained unfilled due to lack of applicants. The immigration reform will be used as a tool to, hopefully,ensure thatm igrant and farm workers are hired legally and come under strict regulation. The comprehensive immigration bill is said tob e coming out from the Senate soon. The word is circulating that Congress has seen it and likes it. They are looking to work off of the Senate bill and negotiating a few changes and trying to meet in the middle, Kirouac said. The immigration bill,if passed,would come with a number of stipulations for migrant and farm workers to undergo if they are hired in Florida and other states. According to Kirouac,the b ill would call for a temporary blue card that would allow workers to live and work in the states. After working two years,for am inimum of 100 to 150 days a year,an immigrant may be granted a blue card. The worker may then legally remain in the UnitedS tates working for approximately five to seven years. Following the time frame, migrants may then be eligible to begin the process ofp ossibly acquiring a green card. This is not an amnesty bill and it is not a free pathway for citizenship. During their time working they willn ot be eligible for any U.S. benefits no food stamps, n o Medicaid or Medicare not until they complete the proper process to become aU .S. citizen,Kirouac explained. K irouac is passionate about educating Floridians and the American people about the immigration laws as well as farming in gener-a l. Organizations such as Florida Farm Bureau have b ecome vital to protecting the rights of farmers,their land and produce. We need to depend on ourselves more for our d omestic foods. Is it cheaper to import food from other countries sometimes,yes,b ut the more and more you become dependent on export the prices rise. Just l ike weve become so dependent on foreign oil, t he prices goes up and we definitely dont want that and can not have that with our food,Kirouac said. Farming is a part of every A merican no matter what food items they eat. Everything comes from farmers and the land they use to harvest crops,feed animals and grow produce. Farmers are the good stewards of the land. We follow rules and regulations just like any other industry. Agriculture is the numbero ne industry in Highlands County,and we have to continue our efforts to protect our rights and thats what this trip was all about,K irouac said. Highlands County agricultural as a whole is in sound shape at the moment Kirouac reported. A con-s tant concern however,is water levels in the area. Kirouac stated that water is the biggest concern and competition for is continues to grow. There isnt much going on in our county that is a ffecting agriculture fortunately,Kirouac said. The younger generations o f farm advocates accompanied Kirouac to Washington a fact that he was very proud of and also seemed impressed Capitol Hill big wigs. e had the highest numb er of participants,county wise,from our state. We all e njoyed it and they (legislators) loved to see the young people there.

C M Y K always draining down hill. In Central Florida the evapo-transpiration cycle ist he only source of water.Highlands CountyBecause of Central Floridas sandy soil and limestone foundation,when there is enough rain,waterd rains into the sand creating reservoirs underground, called aquifers. There are three aquifers under Highlands County t he Surficial,the Intermediate and the Floridan. The countysd rinking water comes from the Floridan,which is deepest. T he countys surface water runs south along the L ake Wales Ridge through an interconnected maze of rivers,lakes,wetlands andc anals that flow into three watersheds also known as c atchment or drainage basins to the west,the Peace River watershed drains into Sarasota Bay.To the east and south,theK issimmee River,Western Okeechobee and Fisheating C reek watersheds all drain into Lake Okeechobee. The Kissimmee River, w hich forms the countys eastern boundary,typically e mpties into Lake Okeechobee at a rate of about 1,400 million gallons a day.The Peace River flows into Charlotte Harbor on the west coast. It normally delivers about 776 million gallons a day,but accordingt o SFWMD since 1960 its water flow has declined due to less rain and more groundwater withdrawals.A hard lesson beginsEven before the Civil War, developers and civil engineers came to Florida with big dreams of taming naturea nd making fortunes. The goal was to drain the wet lands and create real estate capable of sustaining cattle, growing crops and support-i ng housing developments. No consideration was given to the consequences of digging drainage canals, however,or straighteningr ivers or drying out the Everglades. As it turned out,the projects worked too well. So much water was drained out of the area that wetlandh abitats disappeared,as did the plants and animals that l ived in them. Aquifer levels fell. Salt water intrusion began along the coasts. Att he same time,people kept arriving by the hundreds of t housands. Water use soared. It became obvious the old policies and plans created more harm than good. Especially regarding thew ater supply.The state began to address the issue.Water management districts createdIn 1961,the state develo ped five water management districts,each led by a 13member volunteer commis-s ion. A districts responsibility is to manage its water and r elated natural resources to ensure continued quality, a vailability and flow. Districts also are charged to take water-related plants and animals into account when making decisions. T o insure availability,one district task is to move water through the system ensuring minimum water levels,or to prevent flooding. This does not mean each district stands alone. Ana ction in one affects the others,sometimes complicating d ecisions,especially when local needs conflict. Water management dist ricts are divided by natural boundaries,not political o nes,each roughly corresponding to one of the five major watersheds in the s tate:Northwest; Suwannee River; St. Johns; Southwest and the Kissimmee/Everglades the last is better known ast he South Florida Water Management District. Each district includes different counties. Highlands County is d ivided between the South Florida district (SFWMD and the Southwest Florida district (SWFWMD SFWMD is responsible f or the agricultural bulk of the county,but a lightning b olt shaped extension of SWFWMD cuts through it that includes the line ofl akes along the Ridge and Avon Park,Sebring and L ake Placid,as well as the urban U.S. 27 corridor.How the water is movedBased on years of collected data from weeklya quifer,lake level and rainfall reports water managers and hydrologists havea baseline of information going back decades. Waterl evels are managed by SWFWMD and SFWMD based on those seasonal averages. For example,as of Friday Lake Istopokgas level wasa t 38.92. The historic regulation level is 39 feet. This means the lake is right where it ought to be,said SFWMD spokesman GabeM argasak,and why the spill-way gates at Istokpoga were barely cracked open; the water hardly moving. If a major rain event or h urricane threatens flooding,gates are opened beforehand and pump stations used to move water south,lowering water levels in affected areas to creater oom for excess run-off. In times of drought, w eirs and dams help keep the water where it is. For example,there is a solidw eir at the entrance to the Josephine-Jackson Canal f rom Little Lake Jackson, just west of Tubbs Road. Only when the lake rises above its top,does water run over the dam into thec anal. According to SFWMD, t he district is one of the largest water control systems in the world ... it con-s ists of more than 1,600 miles of canals,1,000 miles o f levees and berms,500 structures,700 culverts and 60 pump stations.(Therei s no pump station in Highlands County). Spillways on southeast s hore of Lake Istokpoga are a part of that system. They o pen and close to regulate the water flow from the lake into a canal system that delivers water to Lake Okeechobee. Other spill-w ays and canals move water from Okeechobee to South Florida and the Atlantic Ocean. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, May 19, 2013Page A5 M ARTIAL ARTS (pp 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 8 8 6 6 1 1 Seminole Gaming; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; main RHR hard rock Tampa 18326; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 6 6 3 3 6 6 N ews-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY This weir crosses the Little Lake Jackson entrance to the J osephine-Jackson Canal, near Tubbs Road.

Events are open to the public C ontinued from page A4 B y BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Phase III of the Sebring Parkway again will be a topic of discussionT uesday as Highlands County commissioners meet in regular session. At issue will be the much-discussed intersection at the north endo f that section of the proposed thoroughfare,which would provide access to South Florida State College. Of the half dozen different s cenarios proposed by Highlands County Engineer Ramon Gavarette,schoolo fficials have indicated the their preference for the interchange designated as options ix. It is called The Sebring P arkway and Memorial Drive Roundabout,and would connect the Parkway from thee ast,with entrances to Memorial Drive to the north a nd south,while providing access from College Drive at the west. In a letter to commissioners,Gavarette maintained theo ption would provide for traffic to continue without the n eed for a traffic signal. Moreover,SFSC reportedly is willing to grant the right ofw ay easements necessary to complete the construction of t he traffic circle. However,as part of the d eal,school officials say they would like to maintain control over the center section of the roundabout meaning they would determine thek inds of shrubbery and signage to be placed there. That portion of the roadway has been a bone of contention for better than ad ecade. When the plan was introduced in 2002,school officials at what was then South Florida Community College,strongly opposedt he design of the intersection, which would have directly linked the Parkway andC ollege Drive. In 2009 the interchange was redesigned in a collabo-r ative effort between college and county staff. That was u ltimately endorsed by the College Board of Trustees and approved by the countyc ommission.However,commissioners reversed that decis ion in March of last year,in spite of strong objections from the college. Also on Tuesdays agenda, the commission will be askedt o approve a project by a group simply known as P roject Impala. Developers have indicated a desire to put in a restaurant within anE nterprise Zone,situated in what is known as a brownf ield area.Due to the fact it is in a brownfield,the state of F lorida reportedly would offer the group financial incentives through the state's Brownfield Redevelopment Tax Refund Program tol ocate in the area. The so-called Brownfieldsare defined as sites for which expansion, redevelopment,or reusemayb e complicated by actual or perceived contamination. There are dozens of such locations scattered throughout Highlands County andt he state. There are both state and federal tax incentives for those who choose to takeo ver and clean up such property. Company spokesmen p romise they will create as many as 20 new jobs at the f acility,with county officials prognosticating the eatery could generate as much as$ 33,474 in property taxes and another $28,070 in sales t axes during the first year alone. While the required 20 percent local match is being waived,county officials stilla re required to recommend the firm as a qualified applic ant for the brownfield designation in order for the project to move forward. The actualn ame of the restaurant and other details were not r evealed. Commission to discuss Parkway Phase II, proposed eatery

C M Y K By PAULNEWBERRY Associated PressIs Michael Phelps planning a comeback? Areport Friday night from WBBH, an NBC television affiliate in Fort Myers, Fla., said Phelps will return to swimming with an eye toward competing at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The three-paragraph story on the stations Web site was posted by news anchor Peter Busch, who is the son of Frank Busch, director of the U.S. national swim team. The greatest Olympian of all time isnt hanging up his swimsuit, after all, the report said, without citing any sources. Phelps went on Twitter to downplay the report, but he didnt specifically deny it either. Why do I keep getting texts about coming back? he wrote. Do (people really believe everything they hear or read? There are (toopeople the world that think they have a story Busch followed with a tweet that said he felt very confident with my info. Guess well see. Phelps has said repeatedly his swimming career was over after winning 18 gold medals and 22 medals overall, both totals far more than any other Olympian. He retired at the age of 27 immediately after last summers London Games. There was no other immediate comment from the Phelps camp. Amessage was left with one of his longtime agents, Drew Johnson. Officials at USA Swimming also didnt immediately respond to a request for comment. Just last weekend, longtime rival Ryan Lochte was clearly skeptical that Phelps would stick with his decision to retire from a sport he dominated for the past decade, especially when so many swimmers are competing well into their 30s. I cant really talk about it, Lochte said, breaking into a sly grin during a Grand Prix meet in Charlotte, N.C. Who knows? In an interview last December with The Associated Press, after beating out LeBron James for male athlete of the year, Phelps stressed repeatedly that he had no plans to return to competitive swimming. He said London, where he captured four gold medals and two silvers, By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAgoal without a plan is just a wish. For Avon Park native Reggie Baker, the plan to achieving his goals is a simple one hard work. Which was something he knew and was willing to put in as he made the transition from basketball with the Red Devils to taking the court with the Catamounts of Potomac State College in West Virginia. I knew I had to start all o ver again, Baker said in an interview Friday. I looked at it like I did in middle school and starting my high school career. I was going to work hard and, as a freshman, was g oing to try to take someones spot. I have a cousin, Teddy Allen, playing football in college and he told me what to expect and what I should be doing to get prepared, he continued. So over last summer I lifted weights to get stronger and bigger, ran miles and got in the gym every day to work on my game. But even with the selfdriven rigors he put himself through, Baker was in for a bit of a surprise which catches many a freshman college athlete off guard that even upping the level of what they are used to on the high school level isnt quite enough. I thought I was in tip-top shape, but once we started practicing, I realized I wast, he said. And everything seemed so unreal. I wasj ust in high school and now Im playing college ball. I got a little overwhelmed. But Baker had his sights set and went about working through his plan, which was just to work hard, listen and learn. And as the practice season moved toward the season schedule, Baker saw himself learning more and more, improving every day and earning a starting spot at shooting guard for their opening game. I was about to play my first college game, he said. I was nervous and didnt know how I would play Whether those nerves were calmed, or if they drove him, Baker had quite a debut against the College of Southern Maryland. He shot 13-21 from the field, 2-5 on threes, 4-5 at the free throw line, had seven rebounds, six assists and three steals in addition to his SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, May 19, 2013 Courtesy photo Former Red Devil Reggie Baker is making the most of his opportunity at Potomac State College.

C M Y K was the perfect way to close his career. I wanted to leave that way, he said. Im sure Ic ould come back in another four years, but why? Ive done everything I wanted to do. Theres no point in mec oming back. Everybody is like, Youre going to come b ack.And Im like, No, Im not.Ive done everything I w anted to do in this sport. I dont know a lot of people w ho can say that. After the Olympics, Phelps turned his attention to golf, filming a show with famed instructor Hank Haney for the Golf Channel, signing an endorsement deal with Ping and indicating a desire to see how far he could progress with a new sport. He even joked that the only way he would compete in Rio would be if he qualified in golf, which is rejoining the Olympic program in 2016. Last week, Phelps participated in an event prior to the Tour Championship at the TPC Sawgrass in Florida. He also cheered his hometown Baltimore Ravens on their way to the Super Bowl, attending the title game at New Orleans with a large group of family and friends. Phelps apparently spent Friday swimming at the Interlachen Country Club in Edina, Minn. Lifeguard Stephen Timmes posted a picture on Instagram that showed Phelps, looking extremely fit if not in top condition, smiling and posing poolside. Lifeguarded for and swam with Michael Phelps at work today, Timmes wrote. I love my job. If Phelps does come back, he would have to wait at least nine months to swim in a sanctioned event under the world anti-doping policy, meaning theres no chance of competing at this summers world championships in Barcelona even if he could somehow get into condition. That would peg his return to competition at sometime early next year, leaving plenty of time to get in peak shape and begin gearing up for the 2015 worlds in Russia and, of course, the next Olympics. The timing of the report was intriguing. Phelpscoach, Bob Bowman, took a sabbatical from the deck after London but was set to work with a group including three-time Olympic gold medalist Allison Schmitt during highaltitude workouts at the national training center in Colorado Springs, leading up to the national championships in Indianapolis next month. Bowman also is coaching the U.S. mens team in Barcelona. There was no word on whether Phelps might be among the swimmers taking part in the Colorado workouts.

Quite a stat line for a coll ege freshman in his first college game. Such eye-popping stat lines wouldnt be the norm, of course, but it proved to Baker that he belonged and that his plan was on the right path. After that, I just went out, gave it my all every game and tried my best to help my team win, he said. And his plan of hard work wasnt limited to the court, for Baker knew that the big-g er part of this opportunity he had earned was the chance for a college education. I also took care of busin ess in the classroom, he said about working toward his major in Sports Management. I ended my first semester with a 3.8 grade-point average and my second semester with a 3.4. I knew I had to work at least as hard in the classroom as I did on the court and I was proud of myself. As well he should be, as he added an impressive 18.6 points per game on the season to back up the impressive numbers in the classroom. The goal most of all is to get that college degree, he said. Once I have that, Ik now its something I can a lways fall back on. Plan Ais to play professionally, whether I can one day make it to the NBA, or play overseas. But I know I have to have that back-up plan. As far as the overall transition for the Florida native starting college in Keyser, WV, some aspects were smooth, but Baker had some things to get used to. The school is really nice, the people are really friendly and easy to get along with and the teachers are great and really care about your education, he said. But coming from Florida to West Virginia was a big jump. Im used to hot weather and was a little worried about how cold it might get, he continued. When it snowed,w ell that was the first my f irst time. It wasnt as bad as I thought it would be and after a while, I got used to it. And so the adjustments were made, work was put in and the benefits were seen as Baker sticks to the plan toward achieving his goals. I had so many people tell me I couldnt make it to college, that I wouldnt last a semester, wouldnt get any playing time or make it far he said. I use all that as motivation to work even harder Added benefits were also seen as Bakers strong season and stellar grades have opened up some more doors and given him more options. Ive received offers from three Division II schools andt wo Division I schools, he s aid. I have one more year here to work on getting more offers and move on to bigger and better things. Agoal without a plan is just a wish Reggie Baker has a plan, and its working. Continued from B1 Courtesy photo R eggie Baker is seeing the dividends of his hard work as his stellar freshman season at Potomac State College has garnered him offers from three D-II and two D-I schools. Bakers plan is paying off

W ASHINGTON (AP Solid hiring helped lower unemployment rates in 40 U.S. states last month, the most sinceN ovember. The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates increased in only three states:L ouisiana, Tennessee and North Dakota. Rates were unchanged in seven states. California, New York and South Carolina allr eported the largest unemployment rate d eclines in April. Each states rate fell by 0.4 percentage points. T he report said 30 states added jobs in April, w hile 18 reported fewer jobs. Nationwide, employers added 165,000 jobs in April and the unemploy-m ent rate fell to a fouryear low of 7.5 percent. T he economy has added an average of 208,000 jobs a months ince November. Thats up from only 138,000 a m onth in the previous six months. Unemployment is d eclining in many states because the housing industry is creating jobs a gain. Rates have also d eclined because many of the unemployed have stopped looking for work. Jobless rate falls in 40 states News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY While ownership of The Happy Owl in Sebring changed owners in April, teacher resources remain its main focus.

Call 314-9876 Associated PressBERLIN Justin Bieber h as just hours to reclaim his pet monkey from the animal shelter where it has been since it was seized by German customs, officialss aid Friday, but he will have to pay thousands for the twomonth stay even if he doesnt take the animal back. Aspokesman for Munichs c ustoms office said the teenage singer has until midnight to contact them, otherwise capuchin monkey Mally will be transferred to a permanent home at a zoo or animal park elsewhere in Germany. If no further documents arrive then the seizure order comes into effect and the animal becomes the property of the German state, customs spokesman Thomas Meister told The Associated Press. Mally was seized by German customs March 28 when Bieber failed to produce required vaccination and import papers after landing in Munich while on tour. The now 20-week-old animal was quarantined and cared for at Munichs animal shelter, where manager Karl Heinz Joachim said Mally had fared well and gained weight. The shelter has criticized Bieber for keeping such a young monkey as a pet, saying it shouldnt have been taken away from its mother until it was a year old. Experts say capuchin monkeys also need to be kept in groups as they are very sociable animals. The best thing would be not to buy one at all, but if you do, buy five, said Joachim. He said emails from Biebers management to the animal shelter indicated the singer doesnt want the monkey anymore, but that the final decision would have to be made by German authorities. Our contact is the person that the monkey belongs to, said Meister. Bieber will have to pay for monkey business

Dingwall will be on hand to discuss her research of Celtic legends and lore, read an excerpt from her latest mys-t ery and to autograph books. Library Journal said of Dingwalls debut mystery, Heras Revenge, The authors love of Greece and her insights into a tour groups dynamics make this light romantic suspense debut a welcome distraction for an armchair traveler. A series to watch. In her Holiday Travel Guide, Rita Hernandez said, I usually hate books that have a lot of characters to follow (unless it is an epic but I will say that Mrs. Dingwall does an excellent job of creating all the characters so that while each has their own identity the story still flowed very smoothly.F or a debut novel I will say that it is excellent work. I loved the mix of mythology, Greece, and mystery. I think the best thing was how the mystery sort of crept up on you as though you were actually watching it all unfold. In Celtic Curse, Fiona Batson shares with employer Janice Armstrong her compelling need to return to her childhood home in Peebles, Scotland. Thirty-nine years earlier, her 18-year-old brother, Duncan, vanished, and Fiona can only bring closure by searching for the clues that led to Duncans disappearance. Wendy Dingwall operated h er own travel company in South Florida for more than 12 years. In 2001 she moved to the mountains of Northwest, N.C. and after phasing out her travel business, began working for a local book publisher, marketing authors and their books. In July 2009 she opened her own publishing company and by fall of 2013 will have published 30 books by various notable southern authors. Celtic Curse is available in bookstores and online. Canterbury House Publishing, Ltd. ISBN: 9780-9829054-9-4, trade soft cover, $14.95.

Sebring author to have book signing in Frostproof By CHRIS TALBOTT APMusic WriterNASHVILLE, Tenn. When the producers of the Academy of CountryM usics annual television special approached Tim McGraw about the 2013 edition, the country music star immediately flashed ont he programs format. They were tribute shows and I certainly didnt want anything to do with that, the 46-year-old McGraw said with a laugh. I wasnt ready for that yet. I nstead, McGraw decided to take the show in a new direction, recasting it as as ummer tour preview for fans. ACM Presents: Tim M cGraws Superstar Summer Night, taped one day after the ACM Awards last month in Las Vegas, will air today on CBS (9p .m. EDT). M cGraw invited top country stars like his wife, Faith Hill, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, LukeB ryan and The Band Perry to perform, but said he was most excited by appearances from popand rockworld actsl ike Ne-Yo, Pitbull and John Fogerty. There were a lot o f great country a rtists there, but I see those guys all the time, he joked. M cGraw serves as host, sings some of his own s ongs and joins his fellow artists for others. Most of the invited stars perform one of their own songs during the show. H e and Ne-Yo team up o n She Is. McGraw joins Pitbull on Felt Good on My Lips, and he teams up with Swift and Urban on Highway Dont Care. T he moment that really sticks with him, though, was joining Fogerty, Aldean, Urban and Bryan for Creedence ClearwaterR evivals Born on the Bayou. e were completely floored when he opened his mouth and started singing, McGraw said of Fogerty. Were all Fogerty fans, CCR fans, all the stuff that h e did that was fantastic. But when he started playing guitar and started singing Born on the Bayouin that voice I think hes in his m id-60s, if Im not mistaken. He can flat ... sing. We just sort of stepped back and looked at each other and said, Are you kiddingm Tim McGraw recasts ACMs TV special, airing tonight McGraw

Another photo shows a couple in bathrobes, their feet touching beneath at able. And there is one of a man, in jeans and a T-shirt, lying on his side as he takes a nap. In all the photos, taken by New York City artist Arne Svenson from his sec-o nd-floor apartment, the faces are obscured or not shown. The people are unidentifiable. But the residents of a glass-walled luxury residential building across the street had no idea they were being pho-t ographed and they never consented to being subjects for the works of art that a re now on display and for sale in a Manhattan gallery. I dont feel its a violation in a legal s ense but in a New York, personal sense there was a line crossed, said M ichelle Sylvester, who lives in the residential building called the Zinc Building, which stands out with its floor-to-ceiling windows in a neighborhood of cobblestone streets and old, brick warehouse buildings. S vensons apartment is directly across the street, just to the south, giving him a clear view of his neighbors by simply looking out his window. I think theres an understanding that w hen you live here with glass windows, there will be straying eyes but it feels different with someone who has a camera, Sylvester said. Svensons show, The Neighbors, o pened last Saturday at the Julie Saul Gallery in Chelsea, where about a dozen large prints are on sale for up to $7,500. His exhibit is drawing a lot of attention, not for the quality of the work, but for the manner in which itw as made. Svenson did not respond to a request f or comment from The Associated Press, but says in material accompanying the exhibit that the idea for it camew hen he inherited a telephoto lens from a friend, a birdwatcher who recently d ied. For my subjects there is no question of privacy; they are performing behind a transparent scrim on a stage of their own creation with the curtain raised high, Svenson says in the gallery n otes. The Neighbors dont know they are being photographed; I carefully shoot from the shadows of my home into theirs. That explanation has done little to s atisfy some residents of the Zinc Building, where a penthouse was once listed at nearly $6 million. In an email circulating among the buildings owners and renters this week, a residentw hose apartment was depicted in Svensons photographs suggested legal recourse against the artist. I am not an expert in this area of the law, but I do think we may have some rights and the ability to stopt his, the email reads. I love art, but find this to be an outrageous invasion o f privacy Civil rights lawyer Norman Siegel said that according to New York civilr ights law, there may be a way for Svensons subjects to challenge him in c ourt but the case will depend entirely on context. The question for the person whos suing is, if youre not identifiable, then wheres the loss of privacy? he said. New York City artists secret photos raise privacy issues

However, its important to remember that they, like all living things,s erve a purpose and help balance the natural cycle of things. Florida is home to about 46 species of snakes, of those only six are ven-o mous. Some of these serpents are even considered threatened because of loss of habitat. One example is the Eastern indigo snake( Drymarchon corais couperi), which is the longest native snake species in the United States, reaching lengths of over seven feet. Known as Lord of theF orest, from the Greek word Drymarcho, this serp ent lives up to its name. The indigo snake is quite beautiful with its iridescentc oloration. The scales appear b lue-black with reddish or cream color areaso n their throat and the side of their heads. H atchlings appear similar, however, they somet imes have white bands around their bodies. These shiny serpents have large, smooth scales in 17 scale rows at mid-body. Eastern indigos live in f latwoods, hammocks, stream bottoms, cane fields, d ry glades, riparian thickets and high ground with welldrained sandy soils and needh undreds of acres for their t ravels. They require specific cover requirements, which change with the seasons. They depend on corridors between these different plantc ommunities. In the spring through the fall seasons, the indigo travels from upland communities to creek bottoms and fields. When thew eather turns colder, they must seek out areas where they can den such as open pine forests and areas with plenty of ground growth.T hey will use the burrow of the gopher tortoise or piles of debris as a home during the winter. Eastern indigo snakes are ready to breed at about threeo r four years old. Their breeding season is from June t o January and from April through July the female will lay anywhere from four tot welve eggs in a burrow or u nder debris. When born, the hatchlings are from one and a half to two feet long. They grow fast and can reach a length of five feet in threey ears. Indigos eat most anything they can catch. They are carnivorous and dine on frogs, birds, small mammals, others nakes, fish, lizards, turtles and invertebrates. They usually hunt during the day. One of the interesting features of this snake is the wayi t kills its prey. They have been seen wildly beating their catch against a nearby hard object in order to subdue it. Another interesting fact about Eastern indigos ist hat they can kill and feed on venomous snakes since they s eem to be immune to the poison contained within these reptiles. They haveb een known to flush prey out from cover and then chase a fter it. They use their powerful jaws to subdue their prey and swallow it while still alive. Since indigo snakes require such a wide distribu-t ion and area of territory, its population is declining due t o habitat loss. Greater human population growth continually increases the risko f extinction for these beautiful creatures. Humans are n ot the only danger however, pets, pesticides and vehicles add to the challenges for the indigo snake.

C M Y K DearAbby: I took care of my husband for 10 years before his death from earlyonset Alzheimers. I am in ar elationship now, and Im finding that a widows status is far different than that of a wife. Not long ago, I was invite d to a friends daughters wedding. When I asked if I c ould bring Sam, I was told, No, we dont knowh im and there are a lot of other people we would like to invite. I got the same response from my first cousin when I asked if Ic ould bring Sam to her sons wedding: Abby, Sam and I are a couple; he is not a casual boyfriend. Surely, if we were married he would bei nvited. Please tell me what is proper when inviting a widow to a wedding or other event. I find the responses I received from my friend and relative to be insensitive and hurtful. Widow Stands Alone DearWidow: It is considered a breach of etiquette to ask to bring a guest to an expensive event like a wedding if only you have been invited. If that option were open, your invitation would have been addressed to Mary Smith, and guest. Its likely that money constraints dictated the guest list be limited at both of these weddings. Ift his happens again, it is up to you to decidew hether witnessing t he event is more important than your discomfort. DearAbby: I doubt this will be answered, but I am desperate. I have been dating this awesome guy for threem onths. He is really sweet and I feel like its going somewhere. The problem is, I lied to him. Hes well-educated andh e continuously encourages me to further my education. He thinks Im a college grad, when in reality, I am three credits short of a diploma. I plan to finish this summer. Should I come clean, or should I let him think what he thinks? Going Someplace and Feeling Guilty DearFeeling Guilty: I think youd feel better if you cleared the air, and if you do, Im sure he will respect you for having the character to do so. Explain that in your eagerness to impress him you didnt mention that youre three credits short of graduat-i ng, but youll have them by autumn. If its a deal-breaker, Id be surprised, but it would mean he wasnt the man for you. DearAbby: Is it tacky to r euse birthday candles? It seems silly to throw awayc andles that have been used for only a minute or two, but I know some people think its bad etiquette. What do you think? Madeline in Rio Rancho, N.M. DearMadeline: Most birthday cakes arrive at the table already lit. Some peopler euse birthday candles if they havent burned down very far. I dont know who told you etiquette would be breached if you didnt use candles right out of the box, but the next time someone says it, you have my permission to reply, Better a cake with used candles than no cake at all.

Taurus will need to make a change this week, but Gemini can kick back and relax I heard the story told of a once great boxing legend on a commercial airplane.The flight attendant asked him to please fasten his seat belt. H e replied, Superman dont need no seatbelt. To which she replied, Superman dont need no airplane! K ids love super heroes and aspire in their imaginations to be just like them. Weve all sat transfixed before Batman, Superman orS piderman movies. Not only do their super powers defy natural laws; but, they area lways up against the evil deeds of one adversary or another. T he plot thickens. Were rooting for our hero and t hough it looks like evil may have him for a time, were confident hell pull through.E ven so, an adrenaline rush makes our thumping heart r ace as we hold our breath with anticipation. Do you ever wish you can have super human power? Its available you know. W hen the disciples saw the miracles Jesus performed, t hey knew he was their Messiah as no oneb ut God could do the things he did. After J esuscrucifixion, they were perplexed, dismayed, grief stricken and confused. But on resurrectiond ay their emotions knew no bounds. I can see them rubbing their eyes to be suret hey werent seeing things as their mouths gaped open flabbergasted, awestruck andf illed with inexpressible joy and certain hope. J esus remained with them for a time and appeared to many of his followers as hee xplained that it was for their benefit and that of the kingd om for him to return to his Father in heaven. He promised not to leave them comfortless nor without power. In Acts 1: 8, NKJV,j ust before his ascension, he said to them, But you shall r eceive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and tot he end of the earth. The day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was given turned these once cowering disciples into bold, powerfulm en of God ... revealing to the world the reality of Jesus while coming up against the evil of their day. How about believers t oday? Are we cowering saints or powerful Christians standing for truth in a worldo f lies? Remember who lives w ithin us and to whom we pray. Humbly acknowledge being saved by grace while at the same time standingc onfident in Christs resurr ection power. We are partakers of the divine nature, as 1 Peter 1: 2-4 expresses. Lets be Gods super heroesand attract many tot he Savior.Selah J an Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent. Do you have super power? P ause And C onsider J an Merop Horoscope D ear Abby

And its an annoyance that gets under just about everyones skin. Sixty-five percent of U.S. adults have suffered from some kind of itch in the past 12 months; and for 26 percent of those polled, the itch was bad enough to see a healthcare professional, according to a recent poll conducted online by Harris InteractiveforTriCalm,anewanti-itch gel.You know it when you feel it, but what exactly is an itch, and is there anything you can do about it?AnatomyofanItchThe skin is your largest organ, and the average body is covered by about 20 square feet of it. Because its so large and exposed, it comes in contact with a lot of potential irritants. Itching, known as pruritus, is a built-in defense mechanism against those irritants. Sometimes the bodys immune system overreacts to an illness, producing an itchy rash. (See sidebar story, When is an Itch More than Just an Itch?) But for most non-illness related itching, heres how itw orks:Stimuli such as dust, pollen, bug venom or plant oils land on your skin. When the irritant gets past the surface layer, skin receptors get irritated.The receptors send a signal to your brain.You start to itch. The natural response to an itch is to remove the irritant so the scratching begins. The scratching sensation interrupts the itching sensation because it tells your brain that the irritant is gone. While this may give some initial, immediate relief, scratching ends up irritating the nerve endings in that spot even more and can open up the skin, exposing it to more irritants. And more itching.ItchTreatmentsIts important to make sure you know the cause of the itching so you can take appropriate measures to stop it. There are some things you can do to help reduce itching and soothe irritated skin:Avoid scratching Cover the area with bandages or dressings if you cant stop scratching. If needed, trim your fingernails and wear gloves to bed.Apply cool, wet compresses.Apply a topical anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area.Moisturize your skin with a high-quality cream at least twice a day. Some anti-itch creams work by reducing inflammation, but thats not always enough, says Dr. Vishakha Gigler, a San Diego based dermatologist. TriCalm, a steroid-free anti-itch gel, binds to a subset of nerves called Type C fibers. These are the nerve cells that send the signals of itching, stinging or burning to the brain. By binding to these nerve cells, TriCalm works to inhibit the transmission of those signals. This results in a rapid reduction in itching, stinging and burning.

But what if youre not sure whats causing the itch?Dry Skin Itching that doesnt come with obvious skin changes, like a rash, is most often due to dry skin, also known as xerosis. Dry skin usually results from environmental factors like hot or cold weather with low humidity, and washing or bathing too much.Skin Conditions Eczema, psoriasis, scabies, hives, and chickenpox can cause itchy skin. The itching is usually accompanied by other symptoms such as bumps, blisters, and red, irritated skin.Internal Diseases These include liver disease, kidney failure, thyroid problems, celiac disease and some cancers. Typically the itching affects the whole body, not just one area.Allergic Reactions and Irritations An irritation can come from wearing wool, or coming in contact with soaps, chemicals or other substances. Sometimes the substance can cause an allergic reaction, such as poison ivy or some food allergens.Nerve Disorders Multiple sclerosis, diabetes mellitus, pinched nerves and shingles are conditions that affect the nervous system, and thus can cause itching.Drugs Some antibiotics, antifungal drugs or narcotic pain medications can cause rashes and itching. Its important to understand and treat the cause of itchy skin, so always seek medical advice before choosing a treatment. KidsGetItchy,TooThe TriCalm poll found that itches make kids and their parents feel pretty bad.81 percent of parents are miserable when their kids are miserable from itch symptoms.62 percent said itching keeps their children up at night.68 percent indicated theyve used creams to treat itch symptoms.75 percent said they worry about using steroid treatments on their children to treat itch.

C M Y K Quality water is essential,but years of drought and growing demand have seriously depleted Central Floridas water resources. Lake and canal levels have fallen leaving many docks and boat houses h igh and dry. Even as significant rain fell in April and the opening days of May,recovery a ppears to be slow. The collection and flow of water in F lorida has always been subject to cycles of natural extremes from flooding to drought. These difficult conditions have been impacted and interrupted by human intervention,complicating matters even more.The basicsAs you learned in elementary school,in a process scientists call evapo-transpiration,water evaporates from the earths surface,condenses into rain clouds and returns to the ground as rain.

After a three-day visit to Capitol Hill this week, Kirouac and six other Highlands County residents have gotten fired up about the importance of agriculture in the area,state and across the nation. The annual trip to Washington,known as the Florida Farm Bureau Field to the Hill trip,brings together the heads of local farm organizations to present issues to legislatures and gain more insight to the issues in the nations capital. All the bureaus in the state are invited and we meet with the Congress and Senate. We get up to speed on information that we may be lacking,and we meet up with the representatives from our districts,Kirouac said. During the event,the legislators and farm bureaus focused on three main issues: immigration,the farm bill and tax reform. Ag advocates journey to Washington By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentB ARTOW First degree murder charges have been leveled against Jarmanus Beck. A grand jury in Polk County returned the indictment against the 25-year old A von Park man this past Thursday. Beck is accused in the death of another resident of the City of Charm,Travis Lenard Fogle of of 922 S. WoodrowAve. It reportedly came as the result of an April 27 shooting incident. According to reports, Fogle and Beck who resided at 721 S. Delaney A ve. had met in the parking lot of the First Baptist Hilltop Church,200 Maxcy Drive in Frostproof,for some sort of exchange. Early reports showed that Fogle had asked a girlfriend, identified as Petra Moore of Tampa,to drive to the location to meet Jarmanusto give him something. The narrative alleges a white vehicle arrived at the church lot. At that time, Fogle exited Moores car. He then reportedly walked to the passenger side of the white vehicle. The witness said she had leaned over to close the car door and heard a pop. She told investigators she then saw the white vehicle drive away. Thats when she found Fogle on the ground. Reportedly,he had been shot in the right eye. The report does not give details on what the men were supposed to have exchanged.

C M Y K Americans need to know their IRS inflicts pain fairlyAmericans will never love the Internal Revenue Service. But we need to be able to trust the outfit to deal a straight hand to all players. Clearly that wasnt the c ase when some IRS officials decided that groups with tea p arty or Patriot in their names would get special scrutiny and possibly the s low roll when seeking tax-exempt status under the l aw. This is at the least a big embarrassment to the Obama administration and Democrats, and a political g ift to Republicans. Political fallout may have a long reach, but the need to stop such an abuse of power cuts across party lines. John Marshalls oft-quoted maxim, The power to tax involves the power to destroy, has many corollaries, including the power to delay or audit is the power to deny or hobble. Thats a power that any government must apply within the law, with no favor for supporters and no prejudice against opponents. Naive? No, essential to good government and the trust on which representative democracy depends. Every organization that applies for tax-exempt status should have to jump through the same hoops and get the same treatment as every other organization. Meet the criteria, you qualify; fail to meet the criteria, you dont. It should not matter where you live on the political or ideological spectrum. (The whole business of tax-exempt status for some nonprofits should be on the table in tax reform, but thats a different subject.) The FBI is on the case. Recent reports say that the special attention to tea partiers wasnt limited to the field office in Cincinnati, but involved Washington, D.C., officials as well. Those responsible need to answer for their actions prosecuted if theyve broken laws, fired if theyve broken trust. With no love lost between taxpayers and tax collectors, the IRS must maintain its reputation as an equal opportunity affliction. An editorial from the Anchorage Daily News in Alaska.

Floridians, and the scientists at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, understand the importance of protecting the health our aquatic habitats, for their recreational value and to assure that the seafood we enjoy is safe to eat. The current rules that define Floridas human health criteria for surface waters are now more than 20 years old virtually ancient when compared to how quickly the world moves today. But after a decade of data collection, risk analysis, scientific peer review and public debate, the Department is moving forward with additional and refined surface water quality criteria. Protecting Floridas marine resources, especially as a source of food, is one of our most important roles as an agency, and we are moving forward with the best science available today. Historically, the Department has regulated only 36 pollutants related to human health. The Department is now proposing to almost double that number by adding 34 new contaminants to the list and updating criteria for 33 of the original 36 contaminants. These criteria cover pollutants in all types of waterbodies within the state rivers, lakes and coastal waters, both brackish and offshore, and consider Floridas most at-risk populations, including young children and pregnant women. These new criteria were considered April 23 by the Environmental Regulation Commission, and will be revisited the topic in the fall. The commission also approved the Departments proposed dissolved oxygen criteria to protect aquatic life. The Department has consulted continuously with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in developing human health criteria, but we have applied more stringent safeguards when calculating our final numbers. The end result: in a side-by-side comparison with EPAs standard approach, the Departments proposed criteria are more stringent in every single case. Because the health of our waterbodies is vital, the Department assembled the best and brightest to peer review and critique our standards. As a result, our scientific methodology has been endorsed by Floridas State Toxicologist from the Department of Health and other scientists who are experts in toxicology and risk assessment. These updates to our human health criteria would protect all Floridians including kids, expectant mothers and self-sufficient fishermen. The Department will also continue to collect data and incorporate emerging science so our standards keep pace in the future. My colleagues and I eat local seafood just like you and your family. It is essential that all of us have confidence that what we eat is safe. Fishing and shellfish harvesting will thrive if our rivers, lakes and coastal waters have strong standards to protect them and Floridas economy and our water-dependent culture will thrive right along with them. Drew Bartlett Director, Division of Environmental Assessment and Restoration Florida Department of Environmental ProtectionVindictive punishment is showingEditor: Vindictive. Websters says vindictive means: 1. Revengeful in spirit; 2. said or done in ways as vindictive punishment. Mr. Obama has shown very serious streaks of vindictive punishment. 1. He has closed off the White House for Americans to tour what is rightfully theirs and given an elected person to the presidency this privilege to live in our house. What gives him the authority to shut down the tours of the White House? 2. He has reduced the number of airports the American people use by cutting back on the hours of air traffic controllers plus reducing the work force. This was all done because he did not get his way with sequestration. I believe Mr. Obama is a very vindictive person. The American people dont need that kind of a person to lead us. P.S. The U.S. Senate has corrected the reduction in air traffic controllers. They realized the potential for aircraft problems. Praise the Lord. Charles A. Marr Avon ParkIs socialist president responsible?Editor: Tucked away in an article in a metro daily newspaper the other day was this bit of good news: The U.S. government reported a surplus of $113 billlion for the month of April, the largest in five years and a sign of the nations improving finances. Of course, the conservative newspaper wouldnt want readers to notice this important item so they made it a teeny, little article. The story goes on to point out that economic growth and higher tax rates have contributed to keep this years budget deficit to be the smallest since 2008 (when Wwas destroying the economy). Since the beginning of the year the deficit is $488 billion while last year at the same time it was $720 billion. In another bit of good news, the stock market is at its highest level ever. Wonder if our socialist president had anything to do with this? Millie Grime Sebring IRS must stay out of partisan politics Don and I are frequent visitors to the Walt Disney World theme parks. In fact, like many, weve invested in annual passes so we can go whenever we feel like it and not feel we have to cram the whole experience into a small amount of time. Weve learned little tricks to make our time more pleasant.Since its faster to get in the park if you dont carry a bag, I put my wallet in a pocket instead of toting my purse (and to be honest I dont want to keep track of a purse at a theme park anyway).We have apps on our phones that give us estimated wait times on rides so we know which ones we have a shot at and which ones are a lost cause. Even with that weve done our share of standing in line at Disney.With some of the more popular rides it appears impossible to avoid them.Some of the rides we really enjoy (like Soarin at Epcot) we dont get to go on very often because the lines are often horrendous. Disney tries to soften the blow by offering Fast Passes. AFast Pass is a ticket you can get that guarantees you entrance at a certain time and will greatly shorten your wait time. We have occasionally made use of the Fast Pass. However, with some of the more popular rides, the passes go quickly, and we are faced with either staying at the park far later than we planned or not getting a pass at all. If we got there earlier, this would be less of an issue. But I am not a morning person and getting me up and ready to go in the wee hours of the morning, especially a Saturday morning, isnt for the faint of heart. Don is willing to brave it, but often he gets caught up in desk work and thus doesnt get around to rousing me until later in the morning. Thus we usually dont get to Disney early enough to combat the worst of the lines. According to an article someone shared with me at www.nypost.com, some rich moms have found another way to beat the long lines. The article alleges that these moms have hired disabled guides so that their families can cut to the front of the lines. The guides arent cheap they run you $130 an hour, which comes to more than $1,000 for an eighthour stint.One mom boasted in the article that with such a guide, they only waited one minute to get into the ride Its a Small World, while others stood in line for 2 1/2 hours. Disney lets disabled patrons those using a wheelchair or a motorized scooter to take up to six people with them to a more convenient entrance. Apparently this often cuts down on wait times. In another report I found on www.wftv.com, the company the Post article mentions, Dream Tours Florida, denied the allegations. Disney also weighed in, calling the behavior unacceptable. My take? If its true, its a sleazy way to get around the whole long lines issue. I have no issue with the truly disabled getting special treatment. But abusing the privilege in this manner is just not right. No one likes the long lines. But find another way to get through it, rich mom. Buy your kid a Gameboy or iPod to play while they wait. Have meaningful conversations. People watch. But dont teach your kids that anything goes when it comes to getting what you want. Waiting in line wont kill them, or you. Ill see you there. Ill be the one yawning and playing on my phone while I wait. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Visit her website at www.laurahware.com.

C M Y K According to Kirouac,the hot topic item of immigration was discussed at length during the event. Legislators have been bombarded with information from farmers and farming organizations that is needed to create a clearer choice on what steps to take next regarding immigration reform. Its important for people to know that the bureau supports immigration reform, but it does not support amnesty,Kirouac said. It is vital to have an accessible and capable work force in the agriculture world. Unfortunately,history has proven that we do not have the domestic workforce to support the agricultural work load. The agricultural field has always taken a lot of flack by citizens and other business entities because of what Kirouac calls a misconception. Comments and beliefs that immigrants are hired as cheap labor are untrue,according to Kirouac and many other members of farm bureaus. It is the furthest thing from the truth that we pay cheap labor for immigrants and migrant workers. According to the USDA recent statistics,the average f arm worker makes $10 an hour,which is above minimum wage. We get beat up all the time by people saying we are taking away jobs from the American people, but the truth is domestic people wont take these jobs. They wont go out there and pick tomatoes and pick oranges. Kirouac stated that the Heartland Workforce director reported just more than 1,000 agricultural-based jobs in Highlands and surrounding counties that have remained unfilled due to lack of applicants. The immigration reform will be used as a tool to, hopefully,ensure that migrant and farm workers are hired legally and come under strict regulation. The comprehensive immigration bill is said to be coming out from the Senate soon. The word is circulating that Congress has seen it and likes it. They are looking to work off of the Senate bill and negotiating a few changes and trying to meet in the middle, Kirouac said. The immigration bill,if passed,would come with a number of stipulations for migrant and farm workers to undergo if they are hired in Florida and other states. According to Kirouac,the bill would call for a temporary blue card that would allow workers to live and work in the states. After working two years,for a minimum of 100 to 150 days a year,an immigrant may be granted a blue card. The worker may then legally remain in the United States working for approximately five to seven years. Following the time frame, migrants may then be eligible to begin the process of possibly acquiring a green card. This is not an amnesty bill and it is not a free pathway for citizenship. During their time working they will not be eligible for any U.S. benefits no food stamps, no Medicaid or Medicare not until they complete the proper process to become a U.S. citizen,Kirouac explained. Kirouac is passionate about educating Floridians and the American people about the immigration laws as well as farming in general. Organizations such as Florida Farm Bureau have become vital to protecting the rights of farmers,their land and produce. We need to depend on ourselves more for our domestic foods. Is it cheaper to import food from other countries sometimes,yes, b ut the more and more you become dependent on export the prices rise. Just like weve become so dependent on foreign oil, the prices goes up and we definitely dont want that and can not have that with our food,Kirouac said. Farming is a part of every American no matter what food items they eat. Everything comes from farmers and the land they use to harvest crops,feed animals and grow produce. Farmers are the good stewards of the land. We follow rules and regulations just like any other industry. Agriculture is the number one industry in Highlands County,and we have to continue our efforts to protect our rights and thats what this trip was all about, Kirouac said. Highlands County agricultural as a whole is in sound shape at the moment Kirouac reported. A cons tant concern however,is water levels in the area. Kirouac stated that water is the biggest concern and competition for is continues to grow. There isnt much going on in our county that is affecting agriculture fortunately,Kirouac said. The younger generations of farm advocates accompanied Kirouac to Washington a fact that he was very proud of and also seemed impressed Capitol Hill big wigs. We had the highest number of participants,county wise,from our state. We all enjoyed it and they (legislators) loved to see the young people there. Emma (Reynolds) has done a wonderful job of getting a younger group of people back started and involved in agriculture and the farm b ureau,Kirouac said. We were very well received.

C M Y K always draining down hill. In Central Florida the evapo-transpiration cycle is t he only source of water.Highlands CountyBecause of Central Floridas sandy soil and limestone foundation,when there is enough rain,water d rains into the sand creating reservoirs underground, called aquifers. There are three aquifers under Highlands County t he Surficial,the Intermediate and the Floridan. The countys d rinking water comes from the Floridan,which is deepest. The countys surface water runs south along the L ake Wales Ridge through an interconnected maze of rivers,lakes,wetlands and c anals that flow into three watersheds also known as c atchment or drainage basins to the west,the Peace River watershed drains into Sarasota Bay.To the east and south,the K issimmee River,Western Okeechobee and Fisheating C reek watersheds all drain into Lake Okeechobee. The Kissimmee River, w hich forms the countys eastern boundary,typically e mpties into Lake Okeechobee at a rate of about 1,400 million gallons a day.The Peace River flows into Charlotte Harbor on the west coast. It normally delivers about 776 million gallons a day,but according t o SFWMD since 1960 its water flow has declined due to less rain and more groundwater withdrawals.A hard lesson beginsEven before the Civil War, developers and civil engineers came to Florida with big dreams of taming nature and making fortunes. The goal was to drain the wet lands and create real estate capable of sustaining cattle, growing crops and supporting housing developments. No consideration was given to the consequences of digging drainage canals, however,or straightening rivers or drying out the Everglades. As it turned out,the projects worked too well. So much water was drained out of the area that wetland habitats disappeared,as did the plants and animals that lived in them. Aquifer levels fell. Salt water intrusion began along the coasts. At the same time,people kept arriving by the hundreds of thousands. Water use soared. It became obvious the old policies and plans created more harm than good. Especially regarding the w ater supply.The state began to address the issue.Water management districts createdIn 1961,the state developed five water management districts,each led by a 13member volunteer commission. A districts responsibility is to manage its water and related natural resources to ensure continued quality, a vailability and flow. Districts also are charged to take water-related plants and animals into account when making decisions. To insure availability,one district task is to move water through the system ensuring minimum water levels,or to prevent flooding. This does not mean each district stands alone. An action in one affects the others,sometimes complicating decisions,especially when local needs conflict. Water management districts are divided by natural boundaries,not political ones,each roughly corresponding to one of the five major watersheds in the state:Northwest; Suwannee River; St. Johns; Southwest and the Kissimmee/Everglades the last is better known as the South Florida Water Management District. Each district includes different counties. Highlands County is divided between the South Florida district (SFWMD) and the Southwest Florida district (SWFWMD). SFWMD is responsible for the agricultural bulk of the county,but a lightning bolt shaped extension of SWFWMD cuts through it that includes the line of lakes along the Ridge and Avon Park,Sebring and Lake Placid,as well as the urban U.S. 27 corridor.How the water is movedBased on years of collected data from weekly aquifer,lake level and rainfall reports water managers and hydrologists have a baseline of information going back decades. Water levels are managed by SWFWMD and SFWMD based on those seasonal averages. For example,as of Friday Lake Istopokgas level was at 38.92. The historic regulation level is 39 feet. This means the lake is right where it ought to be,said SFWMD spokesman Gabe Margasak,and why the spill-way gates at Istokpoga were barely cracked open; the water hardly moving. If a major rain event or hurricane threatens flooding,gates are opened beforehand and pump stations used to move water south,lowering water levels in affected areas to create room for excess run-off. In times of drought, weirs and dams help keep the water where it is. For example,there is a solid weir at the entrance to the Josephine-Jackson Canal from Little Lake Jackson, just west of Tubbs Road. Only when the lake rises above its top,does water run over the dam into the canal. According to SFWMD, the district is one of the largest water control systems in the world ... it consists of more than 1,600 miles of canals,1,000 miles of levees and berms,500 structures,700 culverts and 60 pump stations.(There is no pump station in Highlands County). Spillways on southeast shore of Lake Istokpoga are a part of that system. They open and close to regulate the water flow from the lake into a canal system that delivers water to Lake Okeechobee. Other spillw ays and canals move water from Okeechobee to South Florida and the Atlantic Ocean. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, May 19, 2013Page A5 MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; pg 3 or 5 RHR top of stack ; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 8 8 6 6 1 1 Seminole Gaming; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; main RHR hard rock Tampa 18326; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 6 6 3 3 6 6 News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY This weir crosses the Little Lake Jackson entrance to the Josephine-Jackson Canal, near Tubbs Road.

Events are open to the public Continued from page A4 By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Phase III of the Sebring Parkway again will be a topic of discussion Tuesday as Highlands County commissioners meet in regular session. At issue will be the much-discussed intersection at the north end o f that section of the proposed thoroughfare,which would provide access to South Florida State College. Of the half dozen different s cenarios proposed by Highlands County Engineer Ramon Gavarette,school o fficials have indicated the their preference for the interchange designated as option s ix. It is called The Sebring P arkway and Memorial Drive Roundabout,and would connect the Parkway from the e ast,with entrances to Memorial Drive to the north a nd south,while providing access from College Drive at the west. In a letter to commissioners,Gavarette maintained the o ption would provide for traffic to continue without the n eed for a traffic signal. Moreover,SFSC reportedly is willing to grant the right of w ay easements necessary to complete the construction of t he traffic circle. However,as part of the deal,school officials say they would like to maintain control over the center section of the roundabout meaning they would determine the kinds of shrubbery and signage to be placed there. That portion of the roadway has been a bone of contention for better than a decade. When the plan was introduced in 2002,school officials at what was then South Florida Community College,strongly opposed the design of the intersection, which would have directly linked the Parkway and College Drive. In 2009 the interchange was redesigned in a collaborative effort between college and county staff. That was ultimately endorsed by the College Board of Trustees and approved by the county c ommission.However,commissioners reversed that decision in March of last year,in spite of strong objections from the college. Also on Tuesdays agenda, the commission will be asked to approve a project by a group simply known as Project Impala. Developers have indicated a desire to put in a restaurant within an Enterprise Zone,situated in what is known as a brownf ield area.Due to the fact it is in a brownfield,the state of Florida reportedly would offer the group financial incentives through the state's Brownfield Redevelopment Tax Refund Program to locate in the area. The so-called Brownfieldsare defined as sites for which expansion, redevelopment,or reusemay be complicated by actual or perceived contamination. There are dozens of such locations scattered throughout Highlands County and the state. There are both state and federal tax incentives for those who choose to take o ver and clean up such property. Company spokesmen promise they will create as many as 20 new jobs at the f acility,with county officials prognosticating the eatery could generate as much as $33,474 in property taxes and another $28,070 in sales taxes during the first year alone. While the required 20 percent local match is being waived,county officials still are required to recommend the firm as a qualified applicant for the brownfield designation in order for the project to move forward. The actual name of the restaurant and other details were not revealed. Commission to discuss Parkway Phase II, proposed eatery

C M Y K By PAULNEWBERRY Associated PressIs Michael Phelps planning a comeback? Areport Friday night from WBBH, an NBC television affiliate in Fort Myers, Fla., said Phelps will return to swimming with an eye toward competing at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The three-paragraph story on the stations Web site was posted by news anchor Peter Busch, who is the son of Frank Busch, director of the U.S. national swim team. The greatest Olympian of all time isnt hanging up his swimsuit, after all, the report said, without citing any sources. Phelps went on Twitter to downplay the report, but he didnt specifically deny it either. Why do I keep getting texts about coming back? he wrote. Do (people) really believe everything they hear or read? There are (too) many (people) in the world that think they have a story. Busch followed with a tweet that said he felt very confident with my info. Guess well see. Phelps has said repeatedly his swimming career was over after winning 18 gold medals and 22 medals overall, both totals far more than any other Olympian. He retired at the age of 27 immediately after last summers London Games. There was no other immediate comment from the Phelps camp. Amessage was left with one of his longtime agents, Drew Johnson. Officials at USA Swimming also didnt immediately respond to a request for comment. Just last weekend, longtime rival Ryan Lochte was clearly skeptical that Phelps would stick with his decision to retire from a sport he dominated for the past decade, especially when so many swimmers are competing well into their 30s. I cant really talk about it, Lochte said, breaking into a sly grin during a Grand Prix meet in Charlotte, N.C. Who knows? In an interview last December with The Associated Press, after beating out LeBron James for male athlete of the year, Phelps stressed repeatedly that he had no plans to return to competitive swimming. He said London, where he captured four gold medals and two silvers, By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAgoal without a plan is just a wish. For Avon Park native Reggie Baker, the plan to achieving his goals is a simple one hard work. Which was something he knew and was willing to put in as he made the transition from basketball with the Red Devils to taking the court with the Catamounts of Potomac State College in West Virginia. I knew I had to start all o ver again, Baker said in an interview Friday. I looked at it like I did in middle school and starting my high school career. I was going to work hard and, as a freshman, was g oing to try to take someones spot. I have a cousin, Teddy Allen, playing football in college and he told me what to expect and what I should be doing to get prepared, he continued. So over last summer I lifted weights to get stronger and bigger, ran miles and got in the gym every day to work on my game. But even with the selfdriven rigors he put himself through, Baker was in for a bit of a surprise which catches many a freshman college athlete off guard that even upping the level of what they are used to on the high school level isnt quite enough. I thought I was in tip-top shape, but once we started practicing, I realized I wasnt, he said. And everything seemed so unreal. I was j ust in high school and now Im playing college ball. I got a little overwhelmed. But Baker had his sights set and went about working through his plan, which was just to work hard, listen and learn. And as the practice season moved toward the season schedule, Baker saw himself learning more and more, improving every day and earning a starting spot at shooting guard for their opening game. I was about to play my first college game, he said. I was nervous and didnt know how I would play. Whether those nerves were calmed, or if they drove him, Baker had quite a debut against the College of Southern Maryland. He shot 13-21 from the field, 2-5 on threes, 4-5 at the free throw line, had seven rebounds, six assists and three steals in addition to his SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Sunday, May 19, 2013 Courtesy photo Former Red Devil Reggie Baker is making the most of his opportunity at Potomac State College.

The top-ranked American overcame an early break of her serve to roll past Romanian qualifier Simona Halep 6-3, 6-0 Saturday and reach the Italian Open final, extending her career-best winning streak to 23 matches.

C M Y K was the perfect way to close his career. I wanted to leave that way, he said. Im sure I c ould come back in another four years, but why? Ive done everything I wanted to do. Theres no point in me c oming back. Everybody is like, Youre going to come b ack.And Im like, No, Im not.Ive done everything I w anted to do in this sport. I dont know a lot of people w ho can say that. After the Olympics, Phelps turned his attention to golf, filming a show with famed instructor Hank Haney for the Golf Channel, signing an endorsement deal with Ping and indicating a desire to see how far he could progress with a new sport. He even joked that the only way he would compete in Rio would be if he qualified in golf, which is rejoining the Olympic program in 2016. Last week, Phelps participated in an event prior to the Tour Championship at the TPC Sawgrass in Florida. He also cheered his hometown Baltimore Ravens on their way to the Super Bowl, attending the title game at New Orleans with a large group of family and friends. Phelps apparently spent Friday swimming at the Interlachen Country Club in Edina, Minn. Lifeguard Stephen Timmes posted a picture on Instagram that showed Phelps, looking extremely fit if not in top condition, smiling and posing poolside. Lifeguarded for and swam with Michael Phelps at work today, Timmes wrote. I love my job. If Phelps does come back, he would have to wait at least nine months to swim in a sanctioned event under the world anti-doping policy, meaning theres no chance of competing at this summers world championships in Barcelona even if he could somehow get into condition. That would peg his return to competition at sometime early next year, leaving plenty of time to get in peak shape and begin gearing up for the 2015 worlds in Russia and, of course, the next Olympics. The timing of the report was intriguing. Phelpscoach, Bob Bowman, took a sabbatical from the deck after London but was set to work with a group including three-time Olympic gold medalist Allison Schmitt during highaltitude workouts at the national training center in Colorado Springs, leading up to the national championships in Indianapolis next month. Bowman also is coaching the U.S. mens team in Barcelona. There was no word on whether Phelps might be among the swimmers taking part in the Colorado workouts.

Quite a stat line for a coll ege freshman in his first college game. Such eye-popping stat lines wouldnt be the norm, of course, but it proved to Baker that he belonged and that his plan was on the right path. After that, I just went out, gave it my all every game and tried my best to help my team win, he said. And his plan of hard work wasnt limited to the court, for Baker knew that the bigg er part of this opportunity he had earned was the chance for a college education. I also took care of busin ess in the classroom, he said about working toward his major in Sports Management. I ended my first semester with a 3.8 grade-point average and my second semester with a 3.4. I knew I had to work at least as hard in the classroom as I did on the court and I was proud of myself. As well he should be, as he added an impressive 18.6 points per game on the season to back up the impressive numbers in the classroom. The goal most of all is to get that college degree, he said. Once I have that, I know its something I can always fall back on. Plan Ais to play professionally, whether I can one day make it to the NBA, or play overseas. But I know I have to have that back-up plan. As far as the overall transition for the Florida native starting college in Keyser, WV, some aspects were smooth, but Baker had some things to get used to. The school is really nice, the people are really friendly and easy to get along with and the teachers are great and really care about your education, he said. But coming from Florida to West Virginia was a big jump. Im used to hot weather and was a little worried about how cold it might get, he continued. When it snowed, well that was the first my first time. It wasnt as bad as I thought it would be and after a while, I got used to it. And so the adjustments were made, work was put in and the benefits were seen as Baker sticks to the plan toward achieving his goals. I had so many people tell me I couldnt make it to college, that I wouldnt last a semester, wouldnt get any playing time or make it far, he said. I use all that as motivation to work even harder. Added benefits were also seen as Bakers strong season and stellar grades have opened up some more doors and given him more options. Ive received offers from three Division II schools and two Division I schools, he said. I have one more year here to work on getting more offers and move on to bigger and better things. Agoal without a plan is just a wish Reggie Baker has a plan, and its working. Continued from B1 Courtesy photo Reggie Baker is seeing the dividends of his hard work as his stellar freshman season at Potomac State College has garnered him offers from three D-II and two D-I schools. Bakers plan is paying off

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Diana Elders and her parents, Pam and Philip Elders, became the new owners of The Happy Owl at 277 N. Ridgewood Drive in April when Suzette Rhodes sold the business shed owned for 13 years. It has a been a pleasure for Mother and I to serve our community ... It is a great privilege to have such fine people as the Elders take over the tradition and operation, Rhodes said. The Happy Owl will not change its focus, Pam Elders said. The store remains an educational resource for both teachers and parents. The only thing we dont have is blackboard chalk, Elders said laughing. We do have interactive learning games for the (computerized) Smart Boards. Everything for the classroom. Were here to serve. What we dont have well order. Elders ticked off the variety of items on her fingers. We have bulletin boards, pocket charts, flip charts, educational signs and posters and wall maps. We have workbooks, play money, math manipulatives, magnifying glasses and magnets for kids and all kinds of puzzles for toddlers on up. All our toys are educational. Elder said The Happy Owl plans expanding in the near future to include a shop for pastors and churches, selling the specialty items they need professionally. The family has already added a party store room where they sell everything needed to decorate a special event whether its a birthday, wedding or funeral. The Happy Owl is open from 12 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday; from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. The telephone number is 385-454.

Hunter Newsom, founder of Newsom Eye Laser Center, has announced the acquisition of Guggino Eye Center in Tampa. With this acquisition, Newsom Eye creates one of the largest ophthalmology practices in the Tampa Bay area. Pediatric eye specialist, Dr. Nancy Williams; glaucoma and cataract surgeon, Dr. Michael Levitt; oculoplastic and cataract surgeon, Dr. Dawn Bhasin; along with family eye care specialist, Dr. Jaime Santeramo will all continue to provide patient services at the Swann Avenue location.

In addition, Newsom Eye also offers a full scope of hearing care with a wide variety of hearing aids and services. Newsom Eye also provides the broad resources of the Tampa Surgical Center, an award winning, AAAHC accredited surgical facility located at their Carrollwood office in North Tampa. This is where Newsom Eye surgeons exclusively perform eye surgery and the famous Newsom Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery technique was invented. The most exciting aspect of all of this is the scope of care that Newsom Eye patients can now expect, Newsom said. By combining our specialties, we are able to offer the most comprehensive and advanced family eye care available in Tampa Bay. Whether a routine eye exam, a new pair of eye glasses, or the most complex vision care with advanced laser surgery, Newsom Eye has the doctors and highly skilled surgeons to provide the very finest care available. Guggino Eye Center was founded by Dr. Giacomo S. Guggino in 1974 and has since been offering excellent eye care to the residents of South Tampa. We have long held Guggino Eye Center in the highest regard, Newsom said. We wish Dr. Guggino all the best as he enters the next stage of his life. To honor his legacy, we have designated the Swann Avenue location as the Guggino Eye Center. Newsom has attracted international acclaim as the inventor of the Newsom Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery technique. He is a native of Florida having grown up in Gainesville, and earned his bachelors and medical degree from the University of Florida. He interned at the world famous Mayo Clinic and performed his residency in ophthalmology at the University of Iowa, one of the top three training programs in the nation for eye surgery.

W ASHINGTON (AP) Solid hiring helped lower unemployment rates in 40 U.S. states last month, the most since N ovember. The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates increased in only three states: L ouisiana, Tennessee and North Dakota. Rates were unchanged in seven states. California, New York and South Carolina all r eported the largest unemployment rate d eclines in April. Each states rate fell by 0.4 percentage points. The report said 30 states added jobs in April, w hile 18 reported fewer jobs. Nationwide, employers added 165,000 jobs in April and the unemploym ent rate fell to a fouryear low of 7.5 percent. The economy has added an average of 208,000 jobs a month s ince November. Thats up from only 138,000 a m onth in the previous six months. Unemployment is d eclining in many states because the housing industry is creating jobs a gain. Rates have also d eclined because many of the unemployed have stopped looking for work. Jobless rate falls in 40 states News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY While ownership of The Happy Owl in Sebring changed owners in April, teacher resources remain its main focus. The store now also carries a full line of party supplies.

Call 314-9876 Associated PressBERLIN Justin Bieber h as just hours to reclaim his pet monkey from the animal shelter where it has been since it was seized by German customs, officials s aid Friday, but he will have to pay thousands for the twomonth stay even if he doesnt take the animal back. Aspokesman for Munichs c ustoms office said the teenage singer has until midnight to contact them, otherwise capuchin monkey Mally will be transferred to a permanent home at a zoo or animal park elsewhere in Germany. If no further documents arrive then the seizure order comes into effect and the animal becomes the property of the German state, customs spokesman Thomas Meister told The Associated Press. Mally was seized by German customs March 28 when Bieber failed to produce required vaccination and import papers after landing in Munich while on tour. The now 20-week-old animal was quarantined and cared for at Munichs animal shelter, where manager Karl Heinz Joachim said Mally had fared well and gained weight. The shelter has criticized Bieber for keeping such a young monkey as a pet, saying it shouldnt have been taken away from its mother until it was a year old. Experts say capuchin monkeys also need to be kept in groups as they are very sociable animals. The best thing would be not to buy one at all, but if you do, buy five, said Joachim. He said emails from Biebers management to the animal shelter indicated the singer doesnt want the monkey anymore, but that the final decision would have to be made by German authorities. Our contact is the person that the monkey belongs to, said Meister. Bieber will have to pay for monkey business

The public is invited to a signing event Friday, May 24 from 1-3 p.m. hosted by B ooks-A-Million. Dingwall will be on hand to discuss her research of Celtic legends and lore, read an excerpt from her latest myst ery and to autograph books. Library Journal said of Dingwalls debut mystery, Heras Revenge, The authors love of Greece and her insights into a tour groups dynamics make this light romantic suspense debut a welcome distraction for an armchair traveler. A series to watch. In her Holiday Travel Guide, Rita Hernandez said, I usually hate books that have a lot of characters to follow (unless it is an epic) but I will say that Mrs. Dingwall does an excellent job of creating all the characters so that while each has their own identity the story still flowed very smoothly. For a debut novel I will say that it is excellent work. I loved the mix of mythology, Greece, and mystery. I think the best thing was how the mystery sort of crept up on you as though you were actually watching it all unfold. In Celtic Curse, Fiona Batson shares with employer Janice Armstrong her compelling need to return to her childhood home in Peebles, Scotland. Thirty-nine years earlier, her 18-year-old brother, Duncan, vanished, and Fiona can only bring closure by searching for the clues that led to Duncans disappearance. Wendy Dingwall operated her own travel company in South Florida for more than 12 years. In 2001 she moved to the mountains of Northwest, N.C. and after phasing out her travel business, began working for a local book publisher, marketing authors and their books. In July 2009 she opened her own publishing company and by fall of 2013 will have published 30 books by various notable southern authors. Celtic Curse is available in bookstores and online. Canterbury House Publishing, Ltd. ISBN: 9780-9829054-9-4, trade soft cover, $14.95.

Sebring author to have book signing in Frostproof By CHRIS TALBOTT APMusic WriterNASHVILLE, Tenn. When the producers of the Academy of Country Musics annual television special approached Tim McGraw about the 2013 edition, the country music star immediately flashed on the programs format. They were tribute shows and I certainly didnt want anything to do with that, the 46-year-old McGraw said with a laugh. I wasnt ready for that yet. Instead, McGraw decided to take the show in a new direction, recasting it as a summer tour preview for fans. ACM Presents: Tim McGraws Superstar Summer Night, taped one day after the ACM Awards last month in Las Vegas, will air today on CBS (9 p.m. EDT). McGraw invited top country stars like his wife, Faith Hill, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and The Band Perry to perform, but said he was most excited by appearances from popand rockworld acts like Ne-Yo, Pitbull and John Fogerty. There were a lot of great country artists there, but I see those guys all the time, he joked. McGraw serves as host, sings some of his own songs and joins his fellow artists for others. Most of the invited stars perform one of their own songs during the show. He and Ne-Yo team up on She Is. McGraw joins Pitbull on Felt Good on My Lips, and he teams up with Swift and Urban on Highway Dont Care. The moment that really sticks with him, though, was joining Fogerty, Aldean, Urban and Bryan for Creedence Clearwater Revivals Born on the Bayou. We were completely floored when he opened his mouth and started singing, McGraw said of Fogerty. Were all Fogerty fans, CCR fans, all the stuff that he did that was fantastic. But when he started playing guitar and started singing Born on the Bayouin that voice I think hes in his mid-60s, if Im not mistaken. He can flat ... sing. We just sort of stepped back and looked at each other and said, Are you kidding me? Tim McGraw recasts ACMs TV special, airing tonight McGraw

Phone 453-6052.PLACESTOWORSHIP CROSSWORDSOLUTION NEWYORK (AP) In one photo, a w oman is on all fours, presumably picking something up, her posterior pressed against a glass window. Another photo shows a couple in bathrobes, their feet touching beneath a t able. And there is one of a man, in jeans and a T-shirt, lying on his side as he takes a nap. In all the photos, taken by New York City artist Arne Svenson from his seco nd-floor apartment, the faces are obscured or not shown. The people are unidentifiable. But the residents of a glass-walled luxury residential building across the street had no idea they were being phot ographed and they never consented to being subjects for the works of art that a re now on display and for sale in a Manhattan gallery. I dont feel its a violation in a legal s ense but in a New York, personal sense there was a line crossed, said M ichelle Sylvester, who lives in the residential building called the Zinc Building, which stands out with its floor-to-ceiling windows in a neighborhood of cobblestone streets and old, brick warehouse buildings. Svensons apartment is directly across the street, just to the south, giving him a clear view of his neighbors by simply looking out his window. I think theres an understanding that when you live here with glass windows, there will be straying eyes but it feels different with someone who has a camera, Sylvester said. Svensons show, The Neighbors, opened last Saturday at the Julie Saul Gallery in Chelsea, where about a dozen large prints are on sale for up to $7,500. His exhibit is drawing a lot of attention, not for the quality of the work, but for the manner in which it was made. Svenson did not respond to a request for comment from The Associated Press, but says in material accompanying the exhibit that the idea for it came when he inherited a telephoto lens from a friend, a birdwatcher who recently died. For my subjects there is no question of privacy; they are performing behind a transparent scrim on a stage of their own creation with the curtain raised high, Svenson says in the gallery notes. The Neighbors dont know they are being photographed; I carefully shoot from the shadows of my home into theirs. That explanation has done little to satisfy some residents of the Zinc Building, where a penthouse was once listed at nearly $6 million. In an email circulating among the buildings owners and renters this week, a resident whose apartment was depicted in Svensons photographs suggested legal recourse against the artist. I am not an expert in this area of the law, but I do think we may have some rights and the ability to stop this, the email reads. I love art, but find this to be an outrageous invasion of privacy. Civil rights lawyer Norman Siegel said that according to New York civil rights law, there may be a way for Svensons subjects to challenge him in court but the case will depend entirely on context. The question for the person whos suing is, if youre not identifiable, then wheres the loss of privacy? he said. New York City artists secret photos raise privacy issues

However, its important to remember that they, like all living things, s erve a purpose and help balance the natural cycle of things. Florida is home to about 46 species of snakes, of those only six are veno mous. Some of these serpents are even considered threatened because of loss of habitat. One example is the Eastern indigo snake ( Drymarchon corais couperi), which is the longest native snake species in the United States, reaching lengths of over seven feet. Known as Lord of the F orest, from the Greek word Drymarcho, this serp ent lives up to its name. The indigo snake is quite beautiful with its iridescent c oloration. The scales appear blue-black with reddish or cream color areas on their throat and the side of their heads. Hatchlings appear similar, however, they sometimes have white bands around their bodies. These shiny serpents have large, smooth scales in 17 scale rows at mid-body. Eastern indigos live in flatwoods, hammocks, stream bottoms, cane fields, dry glades, riparian thickets and high ground with welldrained sandy soils and need hundreds of acres for their travels. They require specific cover requirements, which change with the seasons. They depend on corridors between these different plant communities. In the spring through the fall seasons, the indigo travels from upland communities to creek bottoms and fields. When the weather turns colder, they must seek out areas where they can den such as open pine forests and areas with plenty of ground growth. They will use the burrow of the gopher tortoise or piles of debris as a home during the winter. Eastern indigo snakes are ready to breed at about three or four years old. Their breeding season is from June to January and from April through July the female will lay anywhere from four to twelve eggs in a burrow or under debris. When born, the hatchlings are from one and a half to two feet long. They grow fast and can reach a length of five feet in three years. Indigos eat most anything they can catch. They are carnivorous and dine on frogs, birds, small mammals, other snakes, fish, lizards, turtles and invertebrates. They usually hunt during the day. One of the interesting features of this snake is the way it kills its prey. They have been seen wildly beating their catch against a nearby hard object in order to subdue it. Another interesting fact about Eastern indigos is that they can kill and feed on venomous snakes since they seem to be immune to the poison contained within these reptiles. They have been known to flush prey out from cover and then chase after it. They use their powerful jaws to subdue their prey and swallow it while still alive. Since indigo snakes require such a wide distribution and area of territory, its population is declining due to habitat loss. Greater human population growth continually increases the risk of extinction for these beautiful creatures. Humans are not the only danger however, pets, pesticides and vehicles add to the challenges for the indigo snake.

C M Y K DearAbby: I took care of my husband for 10 years before his death from earlyonset Alzheimers. I am in a relationship now, and Im finding that a widows status is far different than that of a wife. Not long ago, I was invited to a friends daughters wedding. When I asked if I could bring Sam, I was told, No, we dont know him and there are a lot of other people we would like to invite. I got the same response from my first cousin when I asked if I could bring Sam to her sons wedding: Abby, Sam and I are a couple; he is not a casual boyfriend. Surely, if we were married he would be invited. Please tell me what is proper when inviting a widow to a wedding or other event. I find the responses I received from my friend and relative to be insensitive and hurtful. Widow Stands Alone DearWidow: Itis considered a breach of etiquette to ask to bring a guest to an expensive event like a wedding if only you have been invited. If that option were open, your invitation would have been addressed to Mary Smith, and guest. Its likely that money constraints dictated the guest list be limited at both of these weddings. If this happens again, it is up to you to decide whether witnessing the event is more important than your discomfort. DearAbby: I doubt this will be answered, but I am desperate. I have been dating this awesome guy for three months. He is really sweet and I feel like its going somewhere. The problem is, I lied to him. Hes well-educated and he continuously encourages me to further my education. He thinks Im a college grad, when in reality, I am three credits short of a diploma. I plan to finish this summer. Should I come clean, or should I let him think what he thinks? Going Someplace and Feeling Guilty DearFeeling Guilty: I think youd feel better if you cleared the air, and if you do, Im sure he will respect you for having the character to do so. Explain that in your eagerness to impress him you didnt mention that youre three credits short of graduating, but youll have them by autumn. If its a deal-breaker, Id be surprised, but it would mean he wasnt the man for you. DearAbby: Isit tacky to reuse birthday candles? It seems silly to throw away candles that have been used for only a minute or two, but I know some people think its bad etiquette. What do you think? Madeline in Rio Rancho, N.M. DearMadeline: Most birthday cakes arrive at the table already lit. Some people reuse birthday candles if they havent burned down very far. I dont know who told you etiquette would be breached if you didnt use candles right out of the box, but the next time someone says it, you have my permission to reply, Better a cake with used candles than no cake at all.

Although you may feel like you're made of money right now, eventually the well will dry up. Taurus (April 21-May 21) Making changes is seldom easy, but change is necessary this week, Taurus. You may need to analyze which areas of your life can use the most work. Gemini (May 22-June 21) Gemini, kick back and have some fun in the next few days. Otherwise, you may waste an opportunity to recharge your batteries. Work responsibilities will not wait for long. Cancer(June 22-July 22) Cancer, expect some rejuvenated ambition and energy. Spurred on by this newfound energy, you can successfully tackle many of the things on your to-do list. Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, unless you can focus you will just be puttering around without a goal. Put your mind on one thing and stick with this line of thinking for a few days. Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo, once you set your mind to something, it can be difficult to alter your opinions or perceptions. You may need to be a bit more flexible with a loved one this week. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra, if you want someone to take you seriously you have to make up your mind. Dont flip-flop on your ideals this week or you may come across as a pushover. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Scorpio, just when you think you have reached a dead end, a new path miraculously opens up. Dont miss your opportunity because time is fleeting. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) If practice makes perfect, then you have just about reached perfection, Sagittarius. You have been over and over something from every angle. It is now or never. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Capricorn, there are many things you will not be able to change about this week, so why focus on the negativity? Instead, work around any issues and get the job done anyway. Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) You often seem immune to the seriousness of certain situations, Aquarius. This week is no different. Try to recognize the gravity of a certain situation and put your best foot forward. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Dont think that your efforts have gone unnoticed, Pisces. Afew key people have been keeping track of your accomplishments.

Taurus will need to make a change this week, but Gemini can kick back and relax I heard the story told of a once great boxing legend on a commercial airplane.The flight attendant asked him to please fasten his seat belt. He replied, Superman dont need no seatbelt. To which she replied, Superman dont need no airplane! Kids love super heroes and aspire in their imaginations to be just like them. Weve all sat transfixed before Batman, Superman or Spiderman movies. Not only do their super powers defy natural laws; but, they are always up against the evil deeds of one adversary or another. The plot thickens. Were rooting for our hero and though it looks like evil may have him for a time, were confident hell pull through. Even so, an adrenaline rush makes our thumping heart race as we hold our breath with anticipation. Do you ever wish you can have super human power? Its available you know. When the disciples saw the miracles Jesus performed, they knew he was their Messiah as no one but God could do the things he did. After Jesuscrucifixion, they were perplexed, dismayed, grief stricken and confused. But on resurrection day their emotions knew no bounds. I can see them rubbing their eyes to be sure they werent seeing things as their mouths gaped open flabbergasted, awestruck and filled with inexpressible joy and certain hope. Jesus remained with them for a time and appeared to many of his followers as he explained that it was for their benefit and that of the kingdom for him to return to his Father in heaven. He promised not to leave them comfortless nor without power. In Acts 1: 8, NKJV, just before his ascension, he said to them, But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. The day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit was given turned these once cowering disciples into bold, powerful men of God ... revealing to the world the reality of Jesus while coming up against the evil of their day. How about believers today? Are we cowering saints or powerful Christians standing for truth in a world of lies? Remember who lives within us and to whom we pray. Humbly acknowledge being saved by grace while at the same time standing confident in Christs resurrection power. We are partakers of the divine nature, as 1 Peter 1: 2-4 expresses. Lets be Gods super heroesand attract many to the Savior.Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent. Do you have super power? Pause And Consider Jan Merop Horoscope Dear Abby

And its an annoyance that gets under just about everyones skin. Sixty-five percent of U.S. adults have suffered from some kind of itch in the past 12 months; and for 26 percent of those polled, the itch was bad enough to see a healthcare professional, according to a recent poll conducted online by Harris InteractiveforTriCalm,anewanti-itch gel.You know it when you feel it, but what exactly is an itch, and is there anything you can do about it?AnatomyofanItchThe skin is your largest organ, and the average body is covered by about 20 square feet of it. Because its so large and exposed, it comes in contact with a lot of potential irritants. Itching, known as pruritus, is a built-in defense mechanism against those irritants. Sometimes the bodys immune system overreacts to an illness, producing an itchy rash. (See sidebar story, When is an Itch More than Just an Itch?) But for most non-illness related itching, heres how it works:Stimuli such as dust, pollen, bug venom or plant oils land on your skin. When the irritant gets past the surface layer, skin receptors get irritated.The receptors send a signal to your brain.You start to itch. The natural response to an itch is to remove the irritant so the scratching begins. The scratching sensation interrupts the itching sensation because it tells your brain that the irritant is gone. While this may give some initial, immediate relief, scratching ends up irritating the nerve endings in that spot even more and can open up the skin, exposing it to more irritants. And more itching.ItchTreatmentsIts important to make sure you know the cause of the itching so you can take appropriate measures to stop it. There are some things you can do to help reduce itching and soothe irritated skin:Avoid scratching Cover the area with bandages or dressings if you cant stop scratching. If needed, trim your fingernails and wear gloves to bed.Apply cool, wet compresses.Apply a topical anti-itch cream or lotion to the affected area.Moisturize your skin with a high-quality cream at least twice a day. Some anti-itch creams work by reducing inflammation, but thats not always enough, says Dr. Vishakha Gigler, a San Diego based dermatologist. TriCalm, a steroid-free anti-itch gel, binds to a subset of nerves called Type C fibers. These are the nerve cells that send the signals of itching, stinging or burning to the brain. By binding to these nerve cells, TriCalm works to inhibit the transmission of those signals. This results in a rapid reduction in itching, stinging and burning.

But what if youre not sure whats causing the itch?Dry Skin Itching that doesnt come with obvious skin changes, like a rash, is most often due to dry skin, also known as xerosis. Dry skin usually results from environmental factors like hot or cold weather with low humidity, and washing or bathing too much.Skin Conditions Eczema, psoriasis, scabies, hives, and chickenpox can cause itchy skin. The itching is usually accompanied by other symptoms such as bumps, blisters, and red, irritated skin.Internal Diseases These include liver disease, kidney failure, thyroid problems, celiac disease and some cancers. Typically the itching affects the whole body, not just one area.Allergic Reactions and Irritations An irritation can come from wearing wool, or coming in contact with soaps, chemicals or other substances. Sometimes the substance can cause an allergic reaction, such as poison ivy or some food allergens.Nerve Disorders Multiple sclerosis, diabetes mellitus, pinched nerves and shingles are conditions that affect the nervous system, and thus can cause itching.Drugs Some antibiotics, antifungal drugs or narcotic pain medications can cause rashes and itching. Its important to understand and treat the cause of itchy skin, so always seek medical advice before choosing a treatment.
