C M Y K B y SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comAVON PARK If you asked Rob Dague, a localf ather and husband, what the most important things in his l ife are his answers would be simple: his daughter, his wife and his new-found healthyl ifestyle. Dague cherishes time he w ill spend on Fathers Day and every other day with his 10-year-old daughter J anelle after a life-changing transformation. The changes werent easy or quick by any means, and Dague can recall the verym oment he knew they were necessary. February 2010, I had to get a new suit for a father/daughter dance. I wasa t Casual Male XLand got the largest suit coat in the s tore and it would not button. It was a 62 long. The dancew as the next day so I could not special order a bigger one. When you have to special order from the big/tall store,i s time for a change, Dague said. The then 37-year-old father and his daughter went to the father/daughter danceo n a Friday evening. Two days later, he signed up for Weight Watchers Monthly Pass. I walked into my first meeting on April 17, 2010 at 438.6 pounds, Dague said. With no real goal in mind outside of becoming more healthy, Dague kept his mission somewhat of a secret for a short time. Neither Dagues wife or their daughter knew that he had joined Weight Watchers. I had heard several times you will not be successful until you make the decision to lose the weight for you, not for someone else. It is very true. I had lost and gained weight several times before, because it is the right thing to do take off the weight for your wife or your child. But this time was different because it was for me, Dague said. Dagues first and only goal was to get healthy and stayh ealthy. After the first few months of maintaining a m ore nutritious, educated diet, Dagues clothes became noticeably looser and he felt t he weight falling off. After only 28 days on the program, Dague had lost 30.2 pounds on dieting alone before even beginning anye xercise routines. I never had, and I still dont have, a number in mind. My goal was and is to be healthy and active,D ague said. And he is doing just that. T wo years and four months later, Dague has lost anda stonishing 220 pounds. Dague has now settled at a healthier weight of 225 pounds and makes as much time as possible to participatei n active events. Dague no longer spends over $700 each year on medications and doctor visits. In fact, his blood pressure issues have vanishedc ompletely and he has remained medication free since November 2012. I have continued to run. I now run a 5K in just under 30 minutes. I have also started running obstacle races and mud runs. (Janelle having a dad who is able to get up, out, and play. She loves to run and she is the reason I continue to run. She and I have run several 5K races. She usually beats me, and as she has gotten older she is now running obstacle races with me. She likes to tell me that as she gets bigger, she will keep getting faster. I tell her that as I get smaller, I will keep getting faster, Dague said playfully. They duo just completed the Mudzilla Run in midMay. Dague is all signed up for three more obstacle runs this year in various locations around the country (South Carolina, Mississippi andV irginia). With a new body and a n ew opportunity to live a full, healthy life, Dague is determined to set an example f or Janelle. I am setting a great example for her in how to live healthy and actively. Ive also shown her that no matter how daunting the endeavor, it can be done, Dague said. This Fathers Day, Dague i s reminded that hard work and dedication not only bene fit the person doing the work but are shared with the ones you love. It has become clich, but they do grow up so fast. E ven though I was here I feel like I did miss out on some great time with my daught er, Dague said. Dont miss out. Do what ever you can to be active in your kids lives.

Apparently the NSAhasb een doing this for a while in secret before the cat was l et out of the bag. Some people are outraged, screaming invasiono f privacy and the like. Others shrug and say its n ot a big deal. The NSA isnt actually listening to the phone calls, theyre just l ogging the information such as who is being called and for how long. I d love to say Im surprised at this, but Im not. Not really. I figure the government has the ability to do this kind of data search. S adly, it also doesnt surprise me that they would go ahead and do it. Civil rights? What civil rights? Part of this is our own f ault. Take a look at places like Facebook, where we share all kinds of informa-t ion about ourselves without any thought as to who might be looking. Oh, we might limit it to our friends, but friends isa loose term on Facebook. I say this because I know in my case I tend to befriend those who are more accurately friends of friends. Surely Im not the only one guilty of this. So you have to ask yourself, how well do you know your Facebook friends? And if, like me, you are a member of Foursquare, an app that lets you tell the world where you are, you are freely broadcasting your whereabouts to whoever cares to access the information. It is amazing what we reveal about ourselves without any encouragement from others. Am I concerned about the fact that the NSA(or a smart computer hacker) could discover my web searches, emails, Facebook statuses, and phone calls? Yes and no. On the one hand, anyone listening to my phone calls runs the risk of dying of boredom. Most of my phone conversations arent exactly the stuff of intrigue. They are usually concerning fascinating information such as when Don will be home from work or errandsI need to run before I come home. Now I will admit m y phone calls with James sometimes have entertain-m ent value, but they are hardly national security r isks. Im a little more concerned about the fact they c an access my web searches. I am a writer, which means I research a variety of subjects. If I am writinga murder mystery, as I have d one from time to time, I might well search for ways to dispose of a body, or to kill someone. That might alarm someone who didntk now I was merely engaged in fiction. T here is also the fact I listen to Rush Limbaugho nline when I am writing at Brewsters. I also frequent The Drudge Reports website. These two items might bother this current adminis-t ration, under which being conservative has sometimes resulted in hassles from the IRS. (I say this having the utmost respect for the IRS,e specially since my best friends husband works for them.) What a lot of this comes down to is a matter of trust. If you trust the people gathering the information, then you dont worry about how they will use it. But if you have questions about those in charge, you might find yourself concerned. I have questions about those in charge. So what do you do? Do you unplug your computer, throw away your cell phone, go off the grid? These days thats almost impossible. Do you become paranoid? Some feel that isa viable option. Me? Im going to keep on doing what Im doing. Im too plugged in to step away now. So I guess until we can change things the government will have access to my information. Hope they arent too bored. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

What do they know? According to the Center for Disease Control, Florida has the highest rate ofU .S. drownings for children between 1 a nd 4 years old more than double the national average. Here in Highlands County just last Sunday, a 1-year-old drowned in a swimming pool. N ow is the time to take the matter s eriously. Now is the time to take action t o keep your family and friends safer this summer. Toddlers love to explore. Fence off your pool completely with a gate that automatically closes and locks. C ollect all toys at the end of every swimming session so you dont leave anything near or in the pool that might tempt a child. The vast majority of children who survive are discovered within two min-u tes of immersion. Most children who die are found after 10 minutes, so superv ise, supervise and supervise some more. Drowning can happen quietly and quickly. Never leave children unattend-e d, not even for a minute. Bring your phone out to the pool. K now that while children ages 1-4 d rown most often in swimming pools, older children especially teens drown more often in natural water, like lakes and rivers. Be especially careful. Ayoung boy drowned at Veterans Beachi n 2010. Take a CPR course. Seconds count when its a matter of blood flow to the brain. The ugly fact is death is not the worst that happen. Near-drownings can cause terrible damage sometimesl eaving victims alive, but unable to speak or function. M ake sure your children learn how to swim, be persistently vigilant, protect them from danger, be sure they wear lifej ackets while in a boat or water-skiing and teach them to respect the water and n ever swim alone. Every year, summer brings its joys and dangers. The cooling relief of a lake or a swimming pool are joy and danger combined. We tend to forget the danger Dont turn a moment of joy into a lifetime of despair Lauras Look Laura Ware EDITORIALPAGEPOLICYMake sure to sign your letter and include your address and phone number.

Parents are best defense against substance useEditor: Proverbs 22:6 Train up a Child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it. Just as you inoculate your children against illnesses like chicken pox and measles, you can help immunize them against drugs. Children have to feel comfortable talking to their parents. Kids who arent properly informed are at greater risk of engaging in unsafe behaviors and experimenting with drugs. Parents who are educated about the effects of drugs use, learn the facts that can help correct any misconceptions. Make talking about drugs a part of your general health and safety conversations with your child. Parents are role models for their children so your views on alcohol, tobacco and drugs can strongly influence the views of your child.

C M Y K TALLAHASSEE (AP F lorida Gov. Rick Scott is backing a contentious bill that w ould bar local governments from enacting their own ordinances on benefits fore mployees. Scott signed the bill (HB 655) and 59 other bills on F riday before he left the country on a trade mission to Paris. T he Republican governor on Friday also vetoed 2 bills, including one that would have raised the cost of the wildflower specialty licensep lates. He also vetoed a measure that would have created a public records exemption for email addresses listed on voter registration applications. Scott in his veto message s aid addresses of voters have traditionally been public records, which ensures voters h ave access to election-related materials. state and defense attorneys c ontinue depositions and look for more information surrounding the case. N icole Hebert and Adrianna Rodriguez both a ccepted plea deals last month as accessories after the fact and have agreed tot estify about what happened on the night of June 10, 2 012, when Doty was beaten to death at a party. Two other defendants, Travis Makris and GiovanniB urgos, will face Circuit Judge Angela Cowden this week on their accessoryc harges. Assistant State Attorney Pete Barone stated a t two previous pre-trial conferences that only Makris was cooperating with thes tate.

It was really hard, there were fantastic kids to c hoose from ... it came d own to how they wowed us in the interview A lan Jay Wildstein, who f ounded the scholarship program and matches the m oney raised by the business community, was just as impressed. I was so impressed meeting with these kids and listen to them talk about faith and family N ine finalists from S ebring High School and t he Highlands University Preparatory School were chosen as a result of their academic success, athletic participation, community and school involvement and an interview before a committee. The four winners were chosen from those nine, all graduates of Sebring High. Emily Helterhoff r eceived a $1,000 scholarship, as did David Heston. H elterhoff wants an interesting life. She is enlisting in the Coast Guard and plans for a college degree starting out at South Florida State College. Heston is headed to the University of South Florida to study communications. Taylor Tubbs received a $2,000 scholarship. She is a legendary runner at Sebring, this year coming in first overall during twoc oed races and finishing second in the state in the 1,600 meters. She is going to the University of Florida where she plans to studyp re-med. Sarah Benevides was a warded a $3,000 scholarship. Like Tubbs, she ish eaded to the University of Florida to study biology and pre-med. Asked what she will miss about high school,B enevides said, Every single teacher in high school wants you to succeed. Its not the same in college; you have to do it by your-s elf. The other five finalists were: Kayla Selander, who is going to Flagler College to learn sign-language so she can work with the deaf; Harrison Harvey, who is taking a year off to study at the Great Commission Bible Institute in Sebring and then plans to study business at USF; Sarah Liles, who is going to the University of Florida to study accounting and inter-n ational relations; Ashley Conrad, who is starting out SFSC and plans to obtain a masters degree from Florida State University;a nd Adisak Moonquakland, who was unable to attend. T he lowest grade point average among the gradu-a tes was 4.0, most had averages of 5.0 or higher. Wildstein thanked members of the Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce fort heir support of young students. ere hoping to raise more money than we pay out, he said. We want tom ake this an endowed scholarship so we can give more in the future. The audience, which included State Senator Denise Grimsley and Sebring Mayor George Hensley, raised $5,270 at the luncheon. An individual donor added another $5,000. Wildstein matched both, so $20,540 was raised.

The numbers are down across the board. The biggest dip percentage-wise comes in the municipality of Sebring, with the Orange Blossom City down 5.75 percent from the previous years totals. McIntyre said that came as a result of the Majestic Cove project going into foreclosure. It will be $157,490 less in revenue for them this coming fiscal year under the current millage rate, he said. The biggest drop in ad valorem tax revenue will be for the Highlands County School Board. Although the total valuation for the board is a bit higher this time because they are not subject to some of the exemptions the county is, those figures will be off $924,727 from the previous fiscal year under the current millage. Highlands County will be down almost as much. Collections this fiscal year are projected at $806,290 less than last year. Although percentage-wise, Avon Park was down almost as much, they will only lose $20,334 because so few people pay property taxes in the City of Charm. Low on the list is Lake Placid. At a 2.16 percent decline, the town will see $12,634 less to spend this budget year than last. Despite the fact that these are what are preliminary numbers the longtime property appraiser said the figures are very close. However, McIntyre held out hope, saying indications for next year are showing improvement. From the beginning of 2013 to where we are today in June, the market has started to turn, he said. We still could see some growth this year. But the fact remains that the money city council, school board and county commission members will be dealing with will come from the 2012 fiscal calendar and the pending 2013-2014 budgets will be based on those numbers. ere cautiously optimistic, McIntyre said The tax collectors numbers will be certified July 1. County, municipal and school board budgets must be completed and submitted to the state by Sept. 30.

In all, three horses, two rabbits, a duck and 75 chickens went out the door to the highest bidder. Reportedly, receipts for the sale came in at just over $300. That money will be puta gainst the food stock used to feed the critters over the past several weeks. Highlands County Animal Control Director Darryl Scott, who did the auctioneering, said this will be the last such sale for a while since t he number of feral chickens being trapped in Highway Park has tapered off. e are going to hold off for a while, then come back and hit it again later, he said.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe Sebring Dixie Boys (Age 14All-Star team has been named. Daniel Simons, Trey Frazier, Justin Bickman, Brendan Doty, Jay Bible, Luis Lugo, Kyle Helms, Seth Cannady, Gabe Gomez, Everett Hurst, Trevor Thomas, Hunter Martinez and Clint Patrick were selected after the completion of the Dixie Boys City Tournament last week. This squad will be the local representation at the Dixie Boys State Tournament. And they wont have to travel to the Panhandle or other far reaches of the state as both this summer and next, the Boys State Tournament will be held right here at the Max Long Recreational Complex in Sebring, beginning Friday, July 19. The diversity and ability of the team is impressive, boasting good speed and big hitting, backed up by some strong pitching and solid defense. Adding to that is the core of players that have tournament experience both on the state level as well as in the World Series. Simons, Frazier, Doty, Bible, Helms, Cannady and Hurst were all part of the multiple World Series winning teams at both the Ozone and Junior Boys levels so being daunted by the big stage will not be an issue. Practicing will be underway and ongoing as the team eyes the tournament just over one month away. Before then, plenty more tournaments will be played, including a few hosted in Highlands County.

T hey also made tarpon a catch and release fish for the first time. The FWCs proposed rule, passed by a 4-3 vote, would prohibit gear rigged with bottom weights a technique that is notorious for catching tarpon, even if they are not feeding. Tarpons, also known as silver kings, can grow up to eight feet and weight over 300 pounds and are prized by fishermen because they jump and fight when snagged. In Boca Grande Pass, the largest and most prolific tarpon nursery in the world, the hotly debated issue is whether illegal snagging occurs in during the Professional Tarpon Tournament Seriesannual round of tournaments. C onservationists claim that PTTS is responsible for many dead silver kings washing up on beaches duri ng their contests. Several speakers told the s even-member panel that the d isagreements have degenerated to threats, intimidation and harassment. The Save the Tarpon organization asserted that PTTSreality TVshow is the motivation behind the use of the flossing method that allows trophy fish to consistently be caught. The TVshow has an audience of 44 million viewers, according to PTTS claims. Alawyer for PTTS speaking at the public hearing threatened the commission with a lawsuit if it passed the proposed changes to the gear. The Boca Grande Chamber of Commerce director Lew Hastings, a proponent of changes that may conserve the fishery, told the panel that the business community supports FWCs draft proposal. Hastings told The Associated Press that the fishery can collapse if not protected and that would bring economic devastation to his small island community. Hastings fear may have some basis. Half a century ago, the tarpon fishery did just that in P ort Aransas, Texas, a small town that built its fortune on the silver kings and lost it when the fishery collapsed due to runoff pollutants. The town once known as Tarpon, Texas, is actively trying to restore the tarpon habitat. Dave Markett, a long-time fishing guide who works Boca Grande Pass, called the acrimony that has destroyed lifelong friendships a modern day tragedy There is no scientific evid ence that this gear causes snagging, he told the panel. There is no biological issue with tarpons. No tragedy will happen today or tomorrow if you do a study. He urged the commissioners to table the proposal or to vote it down. S everal long-time fishermen told the regulators that numbers of tarpon have declined. T hey expressed serious concern that without action o n the part of FWC, the tarpon will be driven away. C harter captain Mark Futch of Boca Grande related to the panel that he invented the bottom-weighted circle hook that is currently used by members of the PTTS tourney to snag tarpon. He says he and fellow anglers quit using it years ago when they saw the resulting carnage washing up on local beaches. He told the commissioners that the snagging gear kills tarpon and harms the vulnerable fishery. Celebrities who have lent sponsorship in the past to the PTTS include revered illustrator Guy Harvey and New York Times best-sellin g author and former fishing guide Randy Wayne White. Both have publically reversed their stance and supported the FWCs proposed restrictions. The scientist in charge of the Tarpon and Bonefish Trust, Dr. Aaron Adams, also called on the FWC to protect the unique tarpon resource. I n explaining the FWCs decision to move the draft rule forward, chairman Kenneth Wright said, As a legal matter, we dont have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt with scientific certainty that its snagging fish. Wed be studying this to death. I think we have compelling evidence of the need for the rule. Commissioner Ronald Bergeron dissented. He said that he did not have enough scientific evidence to prove the gear is harmful. He said he will request further information before the final passage of the proposed rule is taken up in Pensacola in September. The commission voted unanimously to make bothb onefish and tarpon catch and release only. Possession of a single tarpon will be allowed only w hen in pursuit of an International Game Fish A ssociation record. T arpon 40 inches or more must stay in the water at all times. FWC staff determined that larger fish are harmed if withdrawn from the supporting waters. The PTTS and other tournament organizers have recently adopted a calculation of weight based on measurements that can be taken with the fish in the water, but the new rule will be now applied across the state. Bonefish will not be allowed to be weighed and must be returned to the water with as little harm as possible. Neither fish is considered edible. Fla. officials approve new rules for tarpon Lilly Byrd, Robert Swaine, Zachary Van Fleet, Evan Dressel, Parker Kampman, Kassidy Caputo, Emma Rowe, Chelsea Schellenberg, Ellissa Nawrocki, Emma Rapp, Ashton Griffin, Shayla Cox, Madeline Swaine, Damian Nawrocki, Xander Farrow,M ichael Byrd, Walker Dressel, Kylie Caputo, Elisabeth Van Fleet, Keegan White, Matthew Andrews, Mason Griffin, Katelyn Van Fleet, Chase Doty, Devon Farrow, Trevor Doty and Julia Van Fleet.

Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Tampa Bay slugger Evan Longoria was the Raysdesignated hitter for the second straight game Friday night due to a sore right foot. Longoria says he has been bothered by plantar fasciitis for probably the past two weeks. Im kind of getting to the point where I really dont feel like Im doing it any good to go out there and run around on it, so I can DH and still be effective, Longoria said. Weve had some long games, and one of those games in the Boston series (earlier this week ing by the end of the game. Its something I havent dealt with before. Its pretty painful. Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said the third baseman could be limited to DH through a weekend home series with Kansas City. The Rays are off Monday before starting a road trip Tuesday at Boston. Our hope is that with a couple DH games and then the day off going into Boston that should give it enough time to be fine and I should be back out there, Longoria said. Kelly Johnson, who played third base for the first time in the majors on Thursday, filled in defensively again Friday for Longoria. Longoria limited by sore foot Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS The NCAAhearings to determine if the University of Miami committed major infractions involving former booster Nevin Shapiro ended Friday after 16 1/2 hours over two days. The Committee on Infractions typically releases its report six to eight weeks after a hearing. I know everybodys glad to get it to this point, Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford said. Everybody will also be glad when its fully culminated and hopefully that will be sooner rather than later. Certainly the hope would be prior to the beginning of another football season. Its been an extraordinary long investigation. The NCAAalleges improper benefits went to 72 players, three recruits and 12 friends and family members. The improper benefits, including cash, memorabilia, strip-club outings, yacht rides and even paid for prostitutes, were distributed between 2002-10. Shapiro is serving a 20year sentence for his role in a $930 million Ponzi scheme. The NCAAbegan its investigations in 2011. Virtually all of the individuals who were named by Shapiro in claims published by Yahoo Sports in August 2011 are no longer at the university, and several people the NCAAwanted to talk refused to cooperate. I think it is (a relief everybody involved, Swofford said. Ive said before, I think the sheer length of the investigation has been a penalty in itself. The Hurricanes have already imposed penalties on themselves. Miamis football team has missed three postseason games two bowl games and what would have been an appearance in last seasons Atlantic Coast Conference championship game in response to the investigation. Football coach Al Golden also is holding back a number of scholarships from the 2013 roster and eight players were suspended last season for varying lengths. Two basketball players were also suspended. School President Donna Shalala, Swofford, Golden, athletic director Blake James were in attendance at a downtown Indianapolis hotel both days. Former football assistants Clint Hurtt and Aubrey Hill were present Thursday, then met with the committee Friday morning and left at 11:15 a.m. All Miami officials, Hurtt, Hill and committee chair Britton Banowsky declined comment. NCAAPresident Mark Emmert does not sit on the committee and was not present either day. The ordeal was complicated on both sides as the NCAAadmitted it botched aspects of the investigation. There were allegations its investigators intimidated witnesses and that they improperly collected information using the subpoena powers of Shapiros own attorney in a separate bankruptcy case. Shalala previously called the NCAAprobe unethical and unprofessional and attempted to have it dismissed. Former NCAAenforcement chief Julie Roe Lach was forced out in March after a report showed the NCAApaid Shapiro attorney Maria Elena Perez more than $19,000 to collect evidence in the case despite objections from the NCAAs legal department and against NCAArules. The NCAAdoes not have subpoena power, and has said it tossed out some details from the notice of allegations against the Hurricanes. Now the waiting begins as the committee creates its report and contemplates further sanctions. Miami officials attend Day 2 of NCAA hearing

C M Y K By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressSAN ANTONIO LeBron James and Dwyane Wade lingered at the edge of the court for a few extra moments after Game 4 of the NBAFinals, waiting to tend to one last piece of business. They wanted to shake Chris Boshs hand. By now, its not a surprise when the biggest man in Miamis trio of stars gets overshadowed, which surely seemed to be the case once again in the game that essentially saved any hope theH eat have at winning their s econd straight NBAtitle. James scored 33 points in his best game of the finals and Wade played his best game in about three months with 32 points, but Boshs 20-point, 13-rebound effort in Miamis 109-93 win over S an Antonio was not lost on the Heat. He got into the battle. He got into the fight, Wade said. He played big for us. Thirteen rebounds, thats what we need from him and obviously 20 points. He played the way that we love to see Chris Bosh play Put another way, if Bosh keeps playing like this, there could be another paraded own Biscayne Boulevard in a few days. Maligned throughout much of the playoffs for relyinga lmost too much on the long jumper and 3-point shot h s exceptional from the outside for a big man, but w ent 0 for 4 from 3-point range in Miamis loss in G ame 1 of the finals Bosh quietly changed his approach. In the next three games of the finals, hes taken one 3pointer, and that was a meaningless misfire with the Heat down by 26 points midway through the fourth quarter of San Antonios romp in Game 3. Hes had three straight double-doubles, just the second time thats happened all season. Hes stayed in more comfortable offensive locales inside the arc, and has totaled 44 points and 33 rebounds in the most recent three games of the series three more points and three more rebounds than the SpursTim Duncan has collected in that span. Yes, the NBAfound him guilty of flopping in Game 4, fining him $5,000 for his arms-flailing fall after a nudge by Duncan. Overall, though, Bosh was anything but a flop in a game that kept Miami from going into what would have been a dreaded 3-1 hole. I dont know really what the difference has been with Chris, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said on Friday, an off day for both teams before the series resumes with Game5 in San Antonio on Sunday. All we know is we need it. And last night he played all his minutes at the center, where we needed it even more. It will be a collective effort. But there wont be anybody else we can turn to. The Heat have an offensive style all their own, the socalled positionless approach. The starting lineup in Game 4 was James, Wade,M ario Chalmers and Mike Miller along with Bosh, m eaning it was four perimeter players with one big man, a gainst a Spurs lineup that has, in Duncan, one of the b est power forwards of all time. Bosh played Duncan evenly. Both scored 20. The other star matchups, those were Miami routs. James and Wade combined for 65 points. San Antonios Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili combined for 20. When those guys play like that, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said of Miamis three stars, you better be playing a more perfect game. Spoelstras decision to start Miller in Game 4 sparked a flurry of trickledown effects. The Spurs went to their bench 47 seconds into the game. Millers mere presence helped open up some space for James and Wade, and their big scoring nights were no coincidence. It also gave Bosh extra room to maneuver inside, where he seemed active as hed been at any point in the series, maybe the entire playoffs. I was able to get in the paint a lot more, Bosh said. I think it really opened up my game a little bit. The jumper really wasnt there in the first half, but it came eventually. I was just able to get in a really good flow The second half, he was darn close to perfect. He made five of his six shots, had nine rebounds, two blocks to keep the game tied in a two-possession span midway through the third quarter, even got on the floor for a loose ball as teammates a round him couldnt wait to pull him up and slap his backside. And when the night was o ver, Bosh really wasnt all that fascinated with his stat line. A ll that mattered was the win. Its just the disposition, first of all, with myself, and t hen everybody else, Bosh said. Those things are going to follow. I dont really pay too much attention to the numbers. Its just how Im doing, the energy and effort that Im giving out there, and everything else falls into place. I always believe that ifI bring the necessary energy, t hings will go well. Thats why the Heat have called him their most important player for the last three y ears. Thats also why, after a game where they grabbed the h eadlines, James and Wade wouldnt walk into the Texas n ight without their big man. Ever since weve gotten t ogether, since the first game, weve had to respond to adversity, Bosh said. Thats something that we pride ourselves on. And we really concentrate. When things get rough and theyre not going like you want them to go, thats when we pull together even more.

C M Y K By BETH J. HARPAZ Associated PressNEWYORK Laura Radocaj of Vero Beach wasw arned when she was pregnant with twins that motherhood would be harder than she imagined especially because she planned to gob ack to work while the twins were still babies. But this has been the easiest transition, said Radocaj, 28, who works from home in corpo-r ate communications. So whats her secret? Her husband, Marco, also 2 8, puts in just as much time with child care and housework as she does, event hough he works full-time for an air-conditioning company. If your partner is splitting things 50-50, its easy, said Laura. Before, when every-o ne made motherhood seem like such a big deal, men w erent chipping in as much. Something is changing with todays young fathers. By their own accounts, byt heir wivestestimony, and according to time-use studies a nd other statistics, more men are doing more around the house, from packings chool lunches and doing laundry to getting up in the m iddle of the night with a screaming infant. If its not my job, then its h er job, and that wouldnt be fair, said Marco. But its not just about sharing chores. For dads in their 20s and 30s, being ani nvolved father is part of their identity. They blog about changing diapers, they chat nonchalantly with colleagues about breastfeeding,a nd they trade recipes for baby food while working o ut with guys at the gym. Creed Anthony, 37, a t eacher and father of two in Indianapolis, recalled standing in a hallway at work talking about breastfeeding with three women. It wasn atural. They didnt bat an eye. Another conversation with colleagues, male and female, involved poopy diapers, puke and eatingc ycles, he said. And there are a number of guys at school who talk to each other about these things, whether its my sons getting up at two in the morning, hes got this diaper rash, what did you do?or running a vacuum cleaner to help a colicky baby. Its funny, but its perfect. His wife, Amal Anthony, 35, who works at a law firm, says Creed not only handles diapers and sick kids, but also does most of the shopping and laundry. But please dont call her husband Mr. Mom. The Mr. Mom thing gets thrown around a lot and a lot of us dont like that, said Anthony, who writes a blog called Tales from the Poop Deck and also contributes to the Life of Dad social networking site. Its normal to us to be a dad. This is what were supposed to do. He said hed like to see more focus on all the really good dads out there ... rather than being portrayed as some doofus that only sits on the couch and watches sports. Part of why dads are doing more around the house may be that women are doing more in the workplace. A study from the Pew Research Center this month found that mothers are the breadwinners in a record 40 percent of families. At the same time, the number of stay-at-home dads is twice what it was 10 years ago though still a relatively small number at 176,000. And in two-thirds of married couples with children under 18, both parents work, according to the U.S. Census. As working moms increasi ngly become the norm, and as their financial contributions become more critical, theyre doing less cleaning and cooking. APew study released in March shows that since 1965, fathers have increased the amount of time they spend on household c hores from four hours to 10 hours a week. Women still do more, but as dads share goes up, moms goes down: In the same time period, mothers reduced their housework from 32 hours a week to 18. Dads have also tripled the amount of time they spend with children since 1965, even though moms still put ina bout six more hours a week with kids than dads overall, a ccording to the Pew study. Theres no question that g uys are doing more, twice to three times as much, in fact for couples working two full-time jobs and caring for children 6 and under thani n the 1970s, said Arlie Hochschild, whose groundbreaking book The Second Shift, documented how an earlier generation of womend id the lions share of child care and housework even if they had outside jobs. Jay Fagan, a sociology professor at Temple University in Philadelphia and founding editor of the academic journal Fathering, says the inverse relationship between hours worked outs ide and inside the home makes sense: When the mother is working full-time,i t is impossible for her to do everything. But theres a nother aspect too, he notes: The more you earn, the more it buys you out of someo f the mundane responsibilities. F or their part, the new dads say they want things divided equally. Fatherhood, says Jeremy Foster, 37, of Kansas City, Mo., has gonef rom a provide, protect scenario, to a team effort, espec ially nowadays with couples raising children where both work full-time. A t one point, when his 1year-old Sophia wasnt sleepi ng well, Foster even moved into the nursery so that his wife, a social worker, could g et enough sleep. Id rock Sophia and get her back to sleep so my wife wasnt doing all the work, said Foster, a creative director andd esigner for an online platform called CD2 Learning. Foster and his wife also have his-and-her diaper bags hers with a floral pattern, h is a gray-and-orange messenger bag from D iaperDude.com. The company was founded 10 yearsa go by Chris Pegula of Santa Monica, Calif., a father of three who was put off by his wifes taste in diaper bags. They were so feminine, t here was no way in hell I was going to carry one of them, said Pegula, now 41. They had colorful stripes and flowers and leopardp rints. They were basically purses. I went to look for a bag for myself but there wast anything on the market ina dad category. Diaper Dude now sells dozens of styles designed to appeal to men, from camouflage prints to bags with baseball team logos. Other signs that hands-on dads are now mainstream range from changing tables inm ens restrooms to unisex baby showers to paternity leave in the workplace. Or, asa new survey from Mens Health magazine andB abyCenter.com summed it up, Dad is the New Mom. But the outside world has not completely accepted the notion of dads as equal part-n ers. Randi Wall, 25, of Northfield, N.J., says she still gets a lot of negative com-m ents from elders about her fiance, Douglas White, Jr., 24, who works as am echanic and also helps around the house and with t heir two kids. Wall, who works from home in advertising and mar-k eting, tunes the naysayers out, saying, Im extremely p roud of the man and the father that he is. Sharing our responsibilities makes our relationship, and our family, function much more smooth-l y. White, for his part, says his choice to help out and t ake part in our childrens lives does not diminish Randis ability to be a won-d erful mother and significant other F agan, the Temple professor, says theres no question that young fathers are far m ore involved, not just in how much time they spend with kids, but also in their sense of who they are as individuals their personali dentities. But he noted that the trend of sharing child care and housework is largely happening among college-edu-c ated couples. Families where parents lack college d egrees and are struggling with unemployment are more likely to be raising their children as single parents, he said. Its a real concern. Even in two-parent famil ies, how much dads do around the house depends on how much the mother is working and how much she is earning, Fagan added. heF agan added that there is also a downside to a world where dads and moms not only both work full-time, but share all the chores, too. Now everybodys exhausted, he said.

Good Morning ToYou P roductions Corp., which is working on a film tentatively titled Happy Birthday argues in a lawsuit filed Thursday that the song should be dedicated top ublic use and in the public domain. T he company is seeking monetary damages and restitution of more than $5m illion in licensing fees collected by W arner/Chappell Music Inc. from thousands of people and groups whove paid it licensing fees. More than 120 years a fter the melody to which the simple lyrics of Happy B irthday to You is set was first published, defendant Warner/Chappell boldly, butw rongfully and unlawfully, insists that it owns the copyright to Happy Birthday to You, the lawsuit states. W arner/Chappell, based in Los Angeles, claims exclusive copyright to Happy Birthday to You, which Guinness WorldR ecords has called the most famous song in the English language. Good Morning ToYou Productions argues that evidence dating to 1893 helpss how the songs copyright expired around 1921. I t says four previous copyrights to the melody of the similar-sounding song Good Morning to All, filed in 1893, 1896, 1899 a nd 1907, have expired or been forfeited.

Amirror pole is a mirror that is attached to a very long expandable pole. It is used to look inside of birds nestst hat are up very high. We were doing a survey ono sprey nests to see how many young the mating pairs hadh atched. I am happy t o report that even though some of the nests held eggs, most of then ests had at least two or three babies. We are fortunate in H ighlands County to have such a healthy population of ospreys. Ospreys usually lay two or three eggs per clutch. Thee ggs do not hatch at the same time and if food is limited, the younger babies may not survive since they cant compete with their larger sib-l ings. The female bird does most of the incubating, which lasts from about 34 to 40 days. Once hatched, the mother continues to stayc lose to the young and care for them while the father goes out and hunts to provide food for his new family. Osprey nests are quite l arge and can reach widths of 5 feet and depths of 2 or 3 feet. Year after year, the ospreys return and continue to add branches and other material to the nest, increas-i ng the size. The males gather most of the material for the o uter structure, while the females find softer objects for the lining of the nest.T hey like to nest in high trees, channel markers and m ost any platforms that rise up out of the water. Ospreys are generally monogamous. The pair will return to the same site tor aise their young and may even stay together their entire lives. Recent surveys state that about 50 percent of young ospreys die in the firsty ear. However, if they are fortunate enough to get t hrough that tough year, they usually live for 15 to 20 years, although some haveb een estimated to be much older. W ith the summer months approaching, the nesting season will come to an end. A common sight will be the adult birds flapping theirw ings and loudly chirping as they instruct their young how to fly. Once they gain some instruction and confidence, the fledglings will begin tom ove their wings, leap from the nest and begin the p rocess of flying. Some of the immature raptors wont get it the first time and maye nd up in the water, but they will shake it off and soon be f lying like their brothers and sisters. After the adult ospreys teach their young to fly, they must show them the art ofh unting. Since about 99 percent of their diet is fish, youll almost always see ospreys near the water. They are excellent hunters aided byt heir exceptional vision, sharp talons, closable nostrils and incredible speed. They prefer fairly large fish, usually about 10-14 inches inl ength. Ospreys fly from 33 to 130 feet above the water, waiting and watching for a proper meal. Once a suitable fish is spotted, the bird plum-m ets feet first into the water with its reversible outer toes, backward-facing scaled talons, and spikes on the underside of its toes and grabs the unsuspecting fish.A ll of these features enable the raptor to spear and hold o nto the slippery creature. The fledglings will leave the nest when they reachs even or eight weeks. But they will stay close to their p arentsnest for about a month. When they first begin hunting, they may follow a male osprey and beg for food. T he osprey (Pandion haliaetus) is often referred to as the fish hawk, fish eagle or sea hawk. Adult ospreys reach lengths of about 2 feet w ith a wingspan of almost 6 feet. The beautiful raptors appear to have a brownish body with lighter grey on the head and chest, dark blackw ings and a black circle around the eyes. Ospreys have been revered for centuries by the Greeks, Romans and even WilliamS hakespeare in his Act 4 of Coriolanus. More recently the osprey has become a symbol of healthy ecosystems in nature, has been featured on more than 50 differ-e nt stamps, been used as emblems for military and s ports teams have been named for the beautiful bird. Corine Burgess is and Environmental Specialist for the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department. Guest columns are t he opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the NewsS un. Young ospreys are preparing to leave the nest N ews From T he W atershed Corine Burgess Courtesy photo The female osprey does most of the incubating, which lasts from about 34 to 40 days.

Out of the graduating class of 27 s tudents, 23 attended the reunion on Saturday, June 8. Six of the students began their academic venture in 1951 at the Lake Placid School from kindergarten to the day they graduatedf rom 12th grade in 1963. Classmates came from Indiana, California, Colorado, Arizona, Georgia, and all around Florida. e had a spectacular turnout, it w as even more special that SFSC allowed us to walk the hallways, visit old classrooms, and reminisce on oldm emories, said Sally Claire, a graduate of 1963 and reunion organizer. Prior to the building of Lake Placid E lementary in the early 1970s, the Lake Placid School was the place of l earning for students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. The building was later opened as SFSC's Lake Placid Center in December 1984. I n attendance was Dr. Robert Fitzgerald, one of their former high school instructors, a former member of the Highlands County School Board, and a retired professor fromS FSC. e thoroughly enjoyed retracing our steps from our first grade classroom right up to our senior year class taught by Dr. Robert Fitzgerald,C laire said. Everyone was just delighted to have Dr. Robert Fitzgerald join us in the classroom where he taught us as his first students when he began teaching in the 1962-6 3 school year. The highlight of their reunion was visiting the gym where they used top lay basketball, perform class plays, and hold school assemblies. What a special day it was to return t o our old school building and walk the halls together once again, Claire s aid. Although there have been many changes, it still felt a lot like home.

C M Y K WASHINGTON (AP U.S. factories barely increased their output in May after two months of declines, a sign that manufacturing is providing little support for the economy. The Federal Reserve said Friday that factory production rose just 0.1 percent in May from April. Output fell 0.4 percent in April and 0.3 percent in March. Factories produced more autos, computers and wood products last month, offsetting declines in the production of primary metals such as steel and furniture. Manufacturing output has risen just 1.7 percent in the past 12 months. Manufacturers are still struggling to cope with the ongoing weakness of global demand, said Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. Overall industrial production was flat in May after a 0.4 percent drop in April. Utility output, which is heavily influenced by the weather, fell 1.8 percent after a 3.2 percent April drop. Mining output rose 0.7 percent after a 1.1 percent increase in April. Manufacturing, the most critical component of industrial production, has struggled this year. Factories have been held back by weak economies overseas that are buying fewer U.S.-made goods. And American businesses have reduced their pace of investment in areas such as equipment and computer software. The decline has held back hiring. Factories have slashed jobs in each of the past three months. And the Institute for Supply Managements manufacturing index fell in May to its lowest level since June 2009, the final month of the Great Recession. Deep government spending cuts that began on March1 may further reduce activity for some companies.

We arent Caesar and besides, those Ides are last month. However, all taxpayers who have refunds coming hadb etter beware these Ides. First, some background. For months we have seen news reports of criminals filing false returns and gettingo ther taxpayersrefunds. What the news reports dont tell you is what about thosef olks whose refunds were taken? Well, heres the rest of the story: S o, you were due a refund. You indicated on your return t hat you wanted your refund direct deposited in your checking account. You filede lectronically. You did everything correctly and then ... n othing. What do you do? First, you go to the IRS website. Enter all the information requested and you read that your refund will be comingi n two weeks. Two weeks later, no refund, so back to t he IRS website for the same answer. Two more weeks and, once again, no refund.Y ou dont want to go back to the website again. To do the s ame thing over and over and expecting a different result is a definition of insanity. So: Y ou write a letter and enclose a copy of your return. You wait a month. No answer. You write again. No answer. You wait a month.N o answer. You write again. No answer. So you call the IRS and you get a human. And you are told that if you send a copy of your taxr eturn with a letter, the IRS will think you are amending t he return, that you have amended it incorrectly and t hey will ignore the letter. Yes, this is true. You ask what you should do. And you are told this: Go to the police and file a criminal report,w hich you then submit to the IRS. No kidding. After seven months of p hone calls, referrals, letters, a voice in Washington said the refund would be sent in1 0 days. And it was. There was no explanation, n o apology, nothing. This was the writers story of the refund due him on the 2010r efund and the writer is an experienced CPA. T his year the struggle is for refunds for two retired people. The struggle for that of an 89-year-old man for his $4,000 plus refund from his2 011 return now has gone on for over a year. A nd now for the advice from a tax professional: Do not make estimated tax pay-m ents to the IRS. They dont pay you interest. They wont b e able to give your refund to someone else. They dont cooperate with those trying t o get their refund. You say, they might charge you interest on your tax payments? Sure. But, would you rather risk your wholer efund? The IRS is not your friend. Douglas McLean is a CPA in Sebring. Guest columns are theo pinion of the writer, not necess arily those of the News-Sun staff. The IRS is not your friend Guest Column Douglas McLean By BARRYFOSTER N ews-Sun correspondentAVON PARK It appears the HighlandsC ounty ordinance regulating fortune tellers will now become the law in AvonP ark. After presenting the council with several ordinance options from cities andc ounties across the Sunshine State, the measure developed b y Highlands County commissioners more than 20 years ago seemed the mosta ppealing to council members. Ironically, I was surprised to find that Highlands had an ordinance. Unfortunately, I had to get all the way to the s before I found thatH ighlands County had an ordinance, said City A ttorney Gerald Buhr. Mayor Sharon Schuler said that it would be easier andm ore efficient to simply adopt the Highlands County m easure than to write an ordinance from scratch. s very specific and very t ime consuming. If somebody is actually interested in doing a business as such, there is a lot of things they are going to have to do. T hat would include such things as fingerprinting, background checks and other information as part of the permitting process. The point of course, is to make sure we prevent any f raud associated with this, Buhr said. C ouncilman Garrett Anderson asked about the cost of the license and whether that would also be changed. City attorneyG erald Buhr cautioned against raising the $500-peryear business license charges, saying the fee already was on the high endo f the areas he had researched. Council instructed Buhr to draft an ordinance so as to allow the city to adopt the mandates currently enforced by the county. The measure will be brought back later for council approval.

C M Y K D earAbby: I am writing you not because of a probl em, but because of two special people in my life. I have two daughters, both in their 20s. They are welleducated and happy. I adoret hem. My wife and I consider ourselves lucky to be their parents. We never pushed them toward goals or to succeed, but they are self-motivated and confident. I have come to the conclus ion that some of us are quite blessed. Id like you to know t hat at least two parents in this world realize that we are, and that we count our blessings. I am older now, and my relationship with myd aughters continues to mature and grow. Older age has its joys, too some far deeper than I had ever imagined. An Appreciative Father in Oregon DearAppreciative Father: Thank you for writing an upper of a letter. Your daughters didnt turn out so well by magic, and congratulations to you and your wife for what was obviously successful parenting. I would like to wish you a very happy Fathers Day and offer the same to fathers everywhere birth fathers, stepfathers, adoptive fathers, foster fathers, and those caring men who mentor children and fill the role of absent fathers. D ear Abby: My s on is married to a wonderful young woman, Dana, and they have a small baby. Dana suffered a brain injury years ago that left her somewhat developmentallyd elayed. Until the baby was born, it wasnt much of an i ssue, but it is becoming apparent that Dana is not always able to parent the child appropriately. (She will leave her on a table to get ad iaper, doesnt feed her according to schedule and doesnt dress her warmly in cold weather.) My son takes care of t hings when hes home, but he works every day. When I think of my own daughters development, I see that Dana is operating at approximatelya middle-teen level even though shes 28. Can you advise what I can do to ensure my granddaughter is safe and secure without making my daughter-in-law feel inadequate? I dont want to seem like a meddling M-I-L. Loves Dana D earLoves Dana: If Dana would leave the baby on a t able while she went to get a diaper, would she also leave the baby in a tub while she went to answer a phone? If you havent voiced your con-c erns to your son, please do because your granddaughter could be seriously injured. Parenting classes might help your daughter-in-law, or involving a social worker or arranging for day care for theb aby could also solve this problem. DearAbby: My wife of 37 years is calling out another mans name and moving her lips in her sleep. I dont rec-o gnize the name and I believe it might be someone she works with. Should I be concerned? Sleepless in Texas D earSleepless: You should be curious, but sleeptalking is not necessarily indicative of romance. If you havent already, ask her who the man of her dreams is. She could be mumbling the name of an old boyfriend from high school or that of a beloved pet from childhood. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

His antics were innocent enough; but disobedient as he had been told numeroust imes not to hang over the railing. My Dad scared for his safety, angry at his disobedience and eager to get himt he necessary care instantly scooped him up wrestling between huggingh im and spanking him.His screams and bloody face had us all pale and shaking. T o this day, Danny has the scar to remember why a lovi ng Dad tried to keep him from hurting himself. Our Dad took his role of p rovider and protector very seriously and did both very w ell.And though he knew to get him medical attention, it was to the ultimate Healer he prayed during such times of crisis. W hen we think of our dads today, remember that G od has built into their masculinity the desiret o provide and protect.As a child, I lovedc limbing into my Daddys lap and feeling the safety of his arms around me. A s a young mother who had known the wounds of divorce, he was there oncea gain as protector.I recall wanting to go on vacation with my young son.But Dadf elt I would be too vulnerable and suggested we go t ogether so that he could provide that protective covering. T hese attributes come from a loving heavenly F ather who is our ultimate provider, protector and healer. As children, we run to daddy when were scared, when we need something, ort o help heal a hurt even if were not sure of how he w ill do it. Our heavenly Father longs for us to run to him as well. But, there is something that Im learning. I need to seek the Provider, not the provision.This eliminates the search for how and when. I need to seek the Protector, not the protection, seeking his loving care and trusting in a provision I cant imagine. I need to seek the Healer, not the healing. Worry and anxiety flee as I come to ap lace of trust in the One who loves me perfectly and has promised to never leave meo r forsake me. As it says in I John 4:18, There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fearJesus loves us perfect-l y; so we have nothing to fear. G od our Father created the heart of a man to mimic his own.Many blessings on our fathers this day. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a NewsSun correspondent.
