C M Y K What started with a simple question of where one person could get a little financial help has now turned into a lifeline for many in Highlands County. Beth Gollihue is the creator behind the Facebook Secret Angels group. Gollihue thought that something had to be done to help out community members and families who are in need. I had an acquaintance who messaged me on Facebook and asked me if I knew of anywhere she could go to get help with her utility bill. Her bill was over $500 and she couldnt get any assistance, Gollihue said. Gollihue hopped onto Facebook and made a quick post asking if anyone would be willing to help out the needy woman and her family. There were so many people willing to help. We got the bill paid in two days, Gollihue said. That was late July of 2012. Fast forward nearly one full year and the Secret Angels Facebook group is home to more than 1,000 members who come together to help out or to be helped. Gollihue added close friends and family soon after she created the group, but it quickly became popular and took off, much to her surprise. The group has become so big, that Gollihue has added four administrators to help out with the group efforts. The group is set up as an open forum; those in need are welcome to post any and all needs on the groups wall, which is seen by each of the members of the group. Administrators sift through the requests and make decisions on which requests will be accepted or denied. The administrators get on there and they check it daily. Together they decide who to help and they discuss everything. Its hard to pick and choose what to help with because some people need a lot, but we try to keep it fair. Theyll sometimes ask for help with an electric bill and their cell phone bill and, of course, we pick to help with the electric bill because we feel its a bigger need, Gollihue said. The unique aspect of the Secret Angels group is right in the name: the secret. The majority of donations are made in private and Gollihue can attest to the generosity of many people in the community. When a person is approved for help, the administrators contact the donators and provide banking numbers to deposit funds for the person in need. 079099401001 Phone ... 385-6155 Fax ... 385-2453 Online: www.newssun.com WAUCHULA STATE BANK/Cheryl Hen; 11.25"; 1.5"; Black plus three; process, front strip low down ; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 7 7 7 7 7 7 Angels Among Us Secret Angels Facebook group becomes a place to give & get help No place like homeHost Lake Placid powers into Dixie Ozone district championship game SPORTS, B1 NEWS-SUNHighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Wednesday-Thursday, July 3-4, 2013 Volume 94/Number 79 | 50 cents www.newssun .com Grill up flavorBring big taste to the party with marinades and spices WHATSCOOKING, B10 Less rain High 88 Low 74Details, A10 CelebrationsB7 Classifieds A7 Clubs B6 Dear Abby B9 Editorial & OpinionA3 Friends & NeighborsB7 Obituaries A6 Puzzles B9 Whats CookingB10 Index BYSAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.com See SECRET, page A4Angels Among Us By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Aday full of fun is in the works for the Fourth of July in the City of Charm.

Although no date has yet been set, Highlands County Lakes Manager Clell Ford said plans are to bring in representatives of the Southwest Florida Water Management District to talk about the specific issues and remedies for them. Among other things, they likely will discuss a recent study done by the U.S. Geological Survey into declining lake levels. Most of the focus has been on Lake Lotela, which has consistently run five to six feet below what is termed the Minimal Flow and Level. (Lotela) lake levels have performed poorly and thats putting it mildly, Ford said. Apparently, experts believe there is a geological reason for the problems. Scientists have determined the rate at which water flows from the surface to the Floridian Aquifer is much higher in the Avon Park area.

Seminar to focus on countys northern lakes See LAKE, A6 By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Several individuals responded angrily Tuesday when county staff asked the commission to approve changes in the countys policies regarding a state program that provides foreclosure prevention assistance loans as well as changes to the adopted subordination of liens policy. Chris Benson, administration project manager for the county, said the changes were necessary because a case had come to light showing lax oversight over several years. The homeowner had been given no notification the county money used to avoid foreclosure had to paid back. The county, for its part, failed to catch the non-payments for four years. The homeowner is now paying monthly. At issue was ensuring how to stop this kind of costly negligence. The discussion centered on what changes are needed to make sure it didnt happen again. Four or five private citizens, however, spoke forcefully to a different issue that the government was in the housing business at all. Their main complaint centered on spending tax dollars for people who cant County loan policy debated See COUNTY, A6

Waldron said the district needs to hire 130 to 140 new teachers this summer, mostly due to a wave of Baby Boomer retirements. This is the first time in five years the district has needed so many new teachers. The good news, Waldron said, is 80-plus teachers have already been hired. The Great American Teach-in, a job fair for educators that was held June 25 in Tampa, proved to be a good source, she added. We sent out 18 letters of intent, she said, and have already officially hired 11 of the applicants. Were getting a lot of newly graduated teachers from all over the country, quite a few from the north, and some from other areas of Florida. She said 30 jobs were still being advertised. Some applicants turned down working in Highlands County, Waldron said, because of the salaries; others had accepted other jobs. July 10, the district holds its first new hire processing program. Every new employee attends and is introduced to the districts employment policies, salary schedule, health insurance coverage and retirement accounts. The new teacher orientation is scheduled for Aug. 7. The district trains the new teachers (including experienced teachers new to the county) in every facet of district education, everything the new teacher needs for the first week of school, from district policies, to the new common core curriculum, Waldron said.

ReadingPals is an early literacy initiative supported by the UWCF Womens Leadership Council, created by Carol and Barney Barnett of Publix S upermarkets. The Barnetts donated $3 million to 10 United Ways in the state of Florida to support the program for three years. The early literacy initiat ives goal is to help kindergarten students to read on their appropriate grade level by third grade. ReadingPals volunteers enjoyed island-themed cuisine catered by Chicanes, as they reflected on their experiences and progress with the students over the 2013-2013 school year. We are pleased to have the opportunity show our ReadingPals how much we appreciate them said Kristin Handley, director of the United Way of Central Floridas Highlands County Division. Twenty volunteers served 71 kindergarten students in two local elementary schools, logging an impressive 1,058 total hours. ReadingPals volunteers commit to weekly, one-hour reading sessions from September to May, at two partnership elementary schools in Highlands County, working on development of background knowledge and vocabulary. The ReadingPals program has enabled our Highlands County kindergarten students to develop their reading skills and build the confidence they need in order to succeed academically. We are seeking new volunteers for the 2013-2014 school year, and hope to reach our goal of deploying 2000 ReadingPals state-wide, Handley said. For more information on how to volunteer, contact Handley at 4533401, or email Handley at kristin.handley@uwcf.org.

Heartland Pops put on concert ThursdayAVON PARK The Heartland Pops will present their third annual, free Fourth of July Concert at Our Lady of Grace Catholic By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING For years, residents have been able to celebrate Independence Day at Sebrings Lakeside Playhouse with a free show. This year the Highlands Little Theatre will be back on Thursday with a Patriotic Musical Revue. My job this year is to bring a bit lighter fare to the stage, director Sunny Zengler said, so we have gone back to a variety show. The performances will be every hour on the hour beginning at 11a.m. and run through 4 p.m. Each half hour performance will be peppered with familiar patriotic tunes as well as some that may be a bit new to younger audience members. For instance, we will have a rendition of What did Delaware? she said. Some of the older folks may remember it. There also will be sing-alongs including The Battle Hymn of the Republic, This Land is Your Land as well as a rousing rendition of Yankee Doodle, which will feature a number of verses that might be unknown to some. We will have lyric sheets to help the audience with the words, she said. Each of the shows will end with God Bless America. Well certainly want everyone to sing along with that, she said. Although there will be couple solos featuring HLT favorites Brenda Hippchen and Art Harriman, most of the music will be provided by The HLTChorus. Zengler recruited, assembled and rehearsed the group for this one-time performance. Anotable digression from that will be a solo handbell rendition of America the Beautiful, which will be done by Zengler herself. The show is more than a salute to America, it also serves as the annual fundraiser for the theatres Janelou Buck Scholarship fund. In an effort to fill the coffers, members of HLT will be cooking up traditional holiday fare such as hot dogs and brats as well as serving up chips and cold beverages in Zennons to make the money. There are three kinds of scholarships we give out, Zengler explained. Theres a category for those seeking a degree in the performing arts, those looking for financial aid for higher degrees in the arts, like a masters degree, and a nondegree scholarship such as fees for conventions and workshops. The Independence Day program also provides a great introduction for those who have never before been to the facility. Those wanting additional information may visit the HLTwebsite at www.highlandslittletheatre.org or call the box office at 382-2525. Patriotic Musical Revue returns to variety show July 4th shows every hour on the hour at Highlands Little Theatre By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Organizers of the 1-1-1 program said the Friday meeting at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church was a great kick-off to the Highlands County effort. The title, which stands for one church, one family, one purpose, indicates the focus on finding local foster families for youngsters. In all, there were 65 people in attendance at the Grogan Center session. Some were families interested in the program, while others were from area churches sent to find out additional details for their congregations. We got six families who are looking at the foster care program and six others interested in adoption, said Jeff Roth, director of the Highlands County Champion for Children Advocacy Center. Thats better than what was done in Lakeland. One of the highlights of the evening was a moving testimonial from Michelle Tellone of the Joy FM radio network about her experience as both a foster and adoptive parent. The segment also featured a video of Tellones teenage daughter talking about her tribulations growing up bouncing from home to home until she was adopted by Tellone. Roth said that of the 52 youngsters from Highlands County who have been removed to licensed foster care, only seven are housed here locally. He explained that going into foster care actually is a last resort. The Florida Department of Children and Families first looks to the homes of immediate relatives to take displaced children. If that is not an option, they then go to a second tierand see if there are families of close friends who will become involved, he said. It is only after that the agents look to foster care. One of the problems is that many times siblings are split up until the problems of the nuclear family are resolved. They also are removed from familiar surroundings, friends and schools. Those who want to participate in foster care first must be screened, then are required to go through DCF licensing classes, which takes about nine weeks. We currently have 13 licensed homes here in Highlands County, Roth said. Thats a number that local child advocates would like to change. They have started by soliciting area churches and church members. Roth pointed to Christian homes as good candidates, citing stability both through a good moral foundation as well as having a church family who can help with some of the childrens needs. Children in need of foster homes range the entire gamut of ages, from small infants to teens who are ready to age out of the program. There really is a wide array of youngsters and those who want to be foster parents have the discretion to say for what age and/or sex they feel most adequate to care, he said. Roth re-iterated he was available to talk with churches, as well as clubs, groups and organizations to explain the process. He may be reached at the Advocacy Center at 4026845. 12 families show interest in initial 1-1-1 meeting Jeff Roth Childrens Advocacy Center directorWe got six families who are looking at the foster care program and six others interested in adoption.

C M Y K By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentA VON PARK The Avon Park Charter Review Committee is slated to get together Monday, even though committee chair G eorge Hall will not be able to attend. Asimilar followup session to the committees inaugural meeting last month was called off last w eek due to the passing of a prominent local citizen. Hall had announced that the death of community leader Clyde Hicks had c aused the temporary postponement, as a number of committee members planned t o attend Hicksservices. The group spent several hours the previous week digging through a heavily revised version of the proposed Avon Park municipal charter, finding a wide array of changes to the document they previously had developed and sent along to the council. The plan was to have had a session last week developing a final recommendation to send back to council. Officials say there should be a quorum of at least three members to get together Monday, including Lester Roberts, Joe Wright and Jim Barnard. Barnard was not at the initial June session of the review committee, which was marred by several glitches, including inconsistent charter review copies distributed among the members. Also questioned was a new segment involving who in the city's administration would be allowed to conduct investigations. Once finished, the new charter will be sent before Avon Park voters for their consideration. It was to have been put up for referendum during the last election cycle but was pulled at the last minute due to inconsistencies with the language. The final charter update meeting is set to be held in the city council chambers Monday commencing at 3 p.m. Although the charter review committee will be meeting Monday, the city council will not convene for their regular session. The regularly scheduled council meeting has been moved to this coming Thursday to accommodate at least two council members who cannot attend. Mayor Sharon Schuler reportedly has been scheduled for a medical procedure and Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray reportedly is out of town on a honeymoon. The longtime councilwoman reportedly tied the knot this past Wednesday with semi-pro basketball player Franklin Giles. Gray has served three terms of office and has been the citys deputy mayor for three years. Giles reportedly played several seasons with aTurkish basketball league. The two reportedly also are officers in the Southside Community Resource Center onSouth Delaney Street in Avon Park. Gray is listed as president and Giles is shown as one of the facility's directors. Several items of note are scheduled for the Thursday evening session, including a public hearing on the city's proposed fortune teller ordinance. That was adopted largely from the current Highlands County statute. Other items tentatively slated are a demonstration of polling software for the citys Internet page and possible discussion on recommendations of the citys charter review committee. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Highlands County Commissioner Don Elwell will hold his fifth town hall style meeting with constituents at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Kenilworth Lodge, 1610 Lakeview Drive. As with all of these meetings Ive hosted, everyone is welcome to attend. My last meeting was extremely valuable, and we had about 60 citizens in attendance. The more diverse the audience, the better I am informed as a result. I look forward to hearing from those Im fortunate to represent, Elwell said. He hopes many citizens come to the session, which will be informative as well as a conversation. There are difficult choices ahead, Elwell warns. This years budget is an important one. Its another year of declining revenues and our county is going to face a serious challenge in trying to make ends meet. All the commissioners, he added, were looking for suggestions to save money. Elwell expects the meeting to last about two hours. He promises the budget will not be the only issue discussed, and that there will be a question and answer period allowing for questions about any county topic. There is no fee. There will be free pizza and beverages for those who arrive early. For more information, contact Elwell at 381-5622.

The Governors Commission on Volunteerism and C ommunity Service, Volunteer Florida, was established in 1994 by the Florida Legislature to administer grants under the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993. The Commission grants funds to Florida AmeriCorps and National Service programs; coordinates volunteerism in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery; and helps to strengthen and expand volunteer engagement for everyone from youths to seniors, to people with disabilities. After moderating a statewide forum in December on community service, I was approached and encouraged to apply to be on the governors commission, McLeod said. Before I was appointed, there was a lack of representation in rural south central Florida. Also, I am the only member from a higher education institution. McLeod fills a vacant seat and is appointed for a three-year term that began July 2. Volunteer Florida's Commission is administratively housed within the Executive Office of the Governor and guided by a bipartisan board of commissioners, who are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate. I've always been extensively involved in community service since moving to the United States, McLeod said. It's a great honor to be selected by the governor to be a member of the Commission on Community Service, especially to keep the heartland of Florida in their sights.

It was exactly one year, a week and a day since the batt les of Lexington and Concord, April 18-19, 1775. A large British fleet with troops arrived off Long Island, N.Y. Only a few days before the Fourth of July, English patrol boats were s kirmishing up and down the Delaware river and General W illiam Howe landed on Staten Island with 9,000 men. He and his army soon had Washington and the Continental Army on the retreat. The members of the Second Continental Congress were not soldiers. Most were well-heeled merchants, professionals, clergy or land holders. Imagine the risk these comfortable middle-class men took and the courage they mustered to speak out. The war was a messy, painful one for soldiers. Supplies were often delayed or lost, the winters were colder than normal and the main weapon was the musket an early, muzzle-loading firearm with a long smooth barrel and a bayonet at the end. According to ncpedia.org/, the musket is a short range weapon, only accurate within 100 yards of a target. The formal European way of fighting with it was to line up the armies opposite each other and shoot in volleys with a bayonet charge. Outgunned and outmanned, it was the American adaptation of American Indian guerrilla tactics and the soldierspersistence, which confounded the British, that won the war. Battlefields and wounds, however minor, were dangerous. Medical knowledge was primitive and battlefield care unorganized. Infection was more likely to kill than the original wound. It took organizing at the national level, with a unified Continental Army to defeat the British. It took brave men willing to risk all. If only todays politicians were nearly as brave. Maybe then, something meaningful could be accomplished by a government too often deadlocked by political nonsense.

Todays smarter buying public, recognizing that fireworks essentially function via a controlled burn, use the products carefully and with good common sense resulting in more use of consumer fireworks and fewer injuries. In 1994, the American Fireworks Standards Laboratory (AFSL) began testing fireworks in China for compliance with U.S. manufacturing and performance standards as enforced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). In addition to the testing program, the AFSLs Standards Committee reviews the standards with a view to increasing the safety margins and making the products safer. The AFSLalso conducts seminars in China on quality control and makes factory visits to improve the manufacturing process. In 1994, the first AFSL conducting its testing program, some 117 million pounds of fireworks were imported into the United States. That year, CPSC reported 12, 500 fireworksrelated injuries in the country. By 2011, with a very improved AFSLtesting protocol, fireworks imports into the U.S. grew 100 percent to 234.1 million pounds, but the number of fireworks-related injuries dropped by over 23 percent to 9,600. We anticipate fewer injuries in the next reporting year. Of the 9,600 fireworksrelated injuries, the CPSCs own data suggests 43.4 percent of the injuries are from unspecified firecrackers, homemade and altered devices, illegal explosives, professional displays, and other unspecified devices. If over 43 percent of the injuries have nothing to do with consumer fireworks, the improvement in injury statistics even better. If you factor in use to the injury statistics, the improvement in fireworksrelated injuries is even more impressive. Based on injuries measured per 100,000 pounds of imported fireworks, there has been an amazing 61.68 percent reduction in injuries from 10.7 per 100,000 pounds in 1994 to 4.1 per 100,000 pounds in 2011. The CPSC, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, the American Pyrotechnics Association, and the National Council on Fireworks Safety, Inc., together with most of the larger fireworks companies, all sponsor public relations initiatives and press conferences aimed at promoting fireworks safety and warning against the use of illegal explosives. Phantom Fireworks even conducts free classes on how to use consumer fireworks safely. If we continue to work diligently on the safety message and are able to get people to continue to strictly follow the safety rules, we can further improve the fireworks-related safety record and reduce injuries even further. The cardinal rule is to use common sense. The fireworks burn and produce fire while functioning, therefore you must respect the products for that fact and take all necessary precautions to avoid incidents. Some of the primary fireworks safety rules include: 1. Never allow children to handle fireworks. Only sober adults should handle and ignite the fireworks. A designated shooter, like a designated driver, should be the one in charge of the fireworks. 2. Use in a clear, open space, free from debris and combustibles. Shoot on a hard, flat surface. Keep your audience a safe distance from your launch site and fallout zones. Aminimum safe distance should be 30 feet for ground-based items and 150 feet for aerials. 3. Have a ready source of water close by. Aconnected hose is best, but a bucket of water or fire extinguisher will suffice. Someone should act as the fireman someone to visually track the burning projectiles down to make sure nothing comes down hot. 4. Do not relight duds. Follow all laws. Use a long-neck butane lighter, punk or Phantom Pyro torch to light the fireworks. Never put any part of your body over a firework or in its travel path. For a complete list of all of the recommended fireworks safety tips, visit the Fireworks University section of www.fireworks.com. Lets continue the great American tradition envisioned by John Adams of celebrating with fireworks when he wrote in 1776 that the Independence Day holiday Ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, bonfires and illuminations (fireworks) from one end of this continent to the other, from this day forward forevermore. Please enjoy the Independence Day holiday with your family and celebrate safely in accordance with the laws of Florida. William A. Weimer is vice president of Phantom Fireworks in Youngstown, Ohio.

The game is overEditor: One of the privileges I enjoy most is the right to free speech. In this letter Im going to exercise that right by writing what I believe to be the truth as I see and understand it. Paula Deens repetitive tearful apologies have done more damage than good. The truth as I see it, many people born and raised in the south have not accepted the fact that the Civil War was fought to abolish slavery. The yankees won and the game is over. The die-hards and the ignorant are still with us because they either cant read the headlines or they have a fixation on doing the war all over again. Please dont feel sorry for Paula Deen. She has enough money to live in comfortably the remainder of her life. She needs to pull down her pots and pans, get comfortable in her recliner and take a nap. Its over. The yankees won. Now whats all the bro-ha-ha about the police being dishonest? Havent we seen them on television abusing people physically, exceeding by far their authority? It doesnt just happen in Florida. Havent six million people watching TVseen two police officers, one on each side holding a mans hands and banging his head against the corner of a building in New York? Not once but again and again. How can we respect police that pull over young women and give them a choice of paying a ticket of $150 or having sex with them? That isnt new; thats been going on for years. They lie and protect each other from getting caught. The George Zimmerman case is a good example. The police didnt arrest him after the killing. They let it go. Una V. McLaughlin Sebring BouquetsGlad Rooney took a standEditor: I was glad to see that the U.S. House Appropriations Committee voted to pass an amendment that would save taxpayer money and halt efforts to bring horse slaughter plants to the U.S. soil. As a long-time resident of Sebring, I am, even happier that U.S. Representative Tom Rooney supported the amendment. I am a part of the 80 percent of Americans that is opposed to horse slaughter for human consumption. Horse slaughter in very cruel and unnecessary. Horses are exposed to hundreds of drugs that make their meat unsafe for human consumption. The shocking discovery of horse meat in beef products in the United Kingdom and other European countries shows that if it happens here we would run a risk of public health and the reputation of our agricultural industry just so a few people in the predatory horse slaughter industry can make money. I think Representative Rooney is the best for taking a stand for those of us in his district and all of America. Thanks Representative Rooney for caring. Gail Leavitt SebringTire Kingdom went the extra mileEditor: Thank you Shelby, the office manager, and Dave, the service manager, and to Charles, excellent technician. I had checked a number of places for used tires and it ended up, thanks to the folks at Tire Kingdom, I was able to get new tires for less than used. I couldnt believe it, and they aligned it and checked problems with the car. Charles did an excellent job. They go the extra mile for their customers. I sure appreciate all your kindness. The tires make a big different and car runs better. Thanks to each of you and Tire Kingdom. J.

You probably spent it with friends and family, maybe at a barbeque or picnic, maybe just lazing around at home. If the weather permitted, you might even have caught some fireworks last week (Im typing this on Wednesday so I have no clue what kind of weather we had for the 4th Im a writer not a timetraveler). You might have lucked out and scored a four day weekend from your place of employment. Which meant an extra day to goof off and relax. Or maybe even shop one of the many holiday sales that crop up during times like this. And hopefully hopefully! you took at least a nanosecond to remember that there is a reason for all this hoopla. That the 4th of July is more than fireworks and grilling and shopping. More than a day off. I worry about a lot of my fellow countrymen. It seems were more caught up in the doings of our favorite celebrities than our countrys leaders. Behavior that wed consider irresponsible in ones personal life reckless spending, lying on a regular basis is considered business as usual in Washington, DC. It reminds me of the story of the pollster who asked a man what he thought about the prevalent ignorance and apathy in our country. The man responded, I dont know and I dont care! Is this the kind of attitude that our Founding Fathers risked all for? Did men fight and bleed and die just so that we could have a four-day weekend? Those that started this nation knew they created something worth fighting for. Those who fought and died on too many battlefields knew we had something worth preserving. Do we appreciate what we have? Yes, we are far from perfect. America has its problems and makes mistakes just like any other nation. But even with our flaws we have many things to be grateful for. We enjoy freedom of speech, of assembly, of religion. Most of us have the freedom to choose our path in life, instead of the government shunting us to a particular future. In the grand scheme of things, we are blessed as a nation. How do we honor this? Its more than taking a day off from work. More than watching again or cheering fireworks over Lake Jackson. We honor this by being good citizens. This means that we take the time and trouble to know whats going on with our country, the good and the bad. And when we see our leaders doing stupid things, we call them on it and urge them to do better or we get new leaders. It means participating in the process. Getting informed on the issues at stake and then voting on them. Yes, voting. Aprivilege that is not available all over the world. One that I fear we all too often take for granted. These days information is all over the place and easier than ever to access. Yes, you have to do some work separating the wheat from the chaff, but there are websites that can even help with that. About 237 years ago, some brave men started this country we know as the United States of America. Men and women of today can honor them and all who came after them by making sure they are helping to make this country the best it can be. And then you can watch the fireworks.

Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the staff of the NewsSun. Honoring the Fourth Among other things, the commissioners were accused of ignoring their constituents and being against prayer. The News-Sun believes nothing c ould be further from the truth. For example, in his report County A ttorney Ross Macbeth stated clearly a written policy in no way impacts the current order of things; nothing will c hange. He said, on the other hand, the number of federal lawsuits being filed a gainst prayer at public meetings is growing. Because Highlands County opens meetings with invocations, it is at risk, especially because it has no written policy. W riting down and adhering to a fair set of rules, Macbeth said, discourages l awsuits and strengthens the countys position should it be sued. For example, instead of having to do extensive, expensive research to prove a consistent policy over time, the county can point to the policy and say, There it is. The objective of the policy, in other words, is to save the tradition of having a guiding prayer before meetings for the benefit of the commissioners, not to get rid of it or restrict it in any way. The News-Sun heard Commissioner Greg Harris say he was prepared to fight for prayer. We heard Jack Richie talk about his devotion to Jesus Christ and say clearly, (Awritten policy) protects us from outside forces. We dont know where the anger came from Tuesday. Wedont understand the breakdown of the conversation when commission members were talking about saving invocations and members of the audience heard just the opposite. That observation, however, is not the main point of this essay. The question is: How did something so sensible become such an emotionally charged issue? The good sense of formalizing tradition into written policy seems straightforward to us. This is a resolution in our own best interest particularly those of us who believe in the power of prayer and want it to remain a part of our official culture. A written policy protects us. It makes our intentions clear and, by providing access to all clergy who wish to take part, it shows the countys good faith. In our litigious culture, when too many people have too much time on their hands and chips on their shoulders, its not a matter of if, but when the county will be sued unless we take action and protect what we have. Extra points for doing it politely. BCC working to save prayer, not restrict it County commissioners were targets of anger and scorn throughout Tuesdays county commission meeting especially during a discussion about protecting invocations from lawsuits.

Explaining the imbalance of justiceEditor: Your readers will recall I w rote a letter to the editor expressing my interest in the story about the boys school in Marianna, Fla. Reason because, my son, affectiona tely known as Jiggs, spent a year in the school because of incorrigible behavior. Jiggs has gone to be with the Lord so he wont m ind my sharing this one escapade. This was long a fter he returned from the boys school. By this time he h ad no respect for authority figures. Late in the evening, Jiggs was returning on foot from a hunting trip. As he walked a long this dirt road, he saw the tail light of a car that appeared to be hidden in the bushes. On closer inspection, Jiggs discovered the car was a police car, unlocked and the keys were in the ignition. There were no lights in the house directly across the road. Jiggs backed the car out and drove it several miles down the road where he parked it in plain view beside the road. He wrote a note that said, If you dont tell, I wont tell. and signed his name. He left the car locked. The story came out ... No one was ever accused of the incident. Now about the Edward Snowden fugitive who leaked the security secrets, now wanted for espionage. Who has committed the greater crime? Snowden who has harmed our country by hacking into government security secrets, or George W. Bush, who invaded Iran and slaughtered thousands of innocent people that were no threat to us? This latest ruling of the Supreme Court on same sex marriage. Why are we so surprised? This is not about morals. This is all about money. The Supreme Court is making it easy for the states to loosen up the laws, giving them the benefit of extra revenue. It wasnt so long ago the Supreme Court did the Republicans a favor by ruling big corporations could give as much money to their favorite candidates as they wanted to. The Supreme Court is supposed to remain neutral, however they appear to bend the rules as they perceive the need. People in the United States are up in arms because God has been over ruled in the law to allow same sex marriage in all states. Yet there are those who are not concerned with our Creators feelings that millions of unborn babies have been murdered in their mothers womb while other babies are killed after they survive the abortion procedure. Doctors who perform abortions are permitted to do the killings sheltered by legal law. Life beings at the time of conception according to the Psalm 139 King James Version. Those of us who love the Lord and serve Him to the best of our ability are rejoicing as we see the End Time approaching. What kind of story will the remainder come up with to justify their deeds and explain the imbalance of justice of our laws? Una V. McLaughlin SebringVeterans first, immigrants secondEditor: The veterans of this nation have been neglected for too long. Put the Immigration Bill on hold; represent the American veterans first. The millions of claims by veterans is Americas first priority. To pay for immigration for millions of illegals from all over the world who have violated our immigration laws and our sovereignty is disrespect for those who made freedom in America possible. The Veterans Administration will not give veterans in the millions whose claims in the millions have not been accepted will have to pay for their own health care. The veteran whose claim has not been accepted by the VAshould not use the VAas their health care provider. The reason as it stands now: The VAcannot accept Medicare or a second payer such as AARPor Humana to pay the bill, making the veteran pay the bill out of pocket bankrupting millions of veterans. There is a bill in the House that would rectify this huge problem. It is called VAMedicare Subvention: HR814 would/authorize Medicare payments to VA medical facilities for services to Medicare eligible veterans. As it, the law, stands now, the millions of veterans who use the VAas their health care provider can be bankrupted by one serious illness. If the veteran refused to pay them, the VAnotifies the U.S. Department of the Treasurys financial management service that you owe the VAagency a delinquent debt. Federal law (31 USC 3716) requires the Treasury to reduce the amount of your social security benefit payments to pay the debt to the VA, a process known as offset. Many Americans say this cannot happen in America. It can and has to me. I have Medicare and a second payer, Humana, which the VArefuses to accept payment from and they are now using Law 31 USC 3716 to take part of my social security. The Bill HR 814 is long overdue. As the law stands now, the VAis destroying millions of veterans and their families, also there is an incentive for the VAto deny millions of veterans claims. Defrauding the veteran is a criminal act and should be addressed by the military of this nation. Billie E. Jewett Sebring

Continued from A1 Fourth to be full of music, fun in AP The people who receive the help are never told who helped them; they dont know who does what. There are some really generous people here that just want to help, Gollihue said. Since its inception, Gollihue has kept a track of all of the families and individuals who have received help. Approximately 100 people have received assistance from the group over the last 11 months. People ask help for lots of different things. Some people just get on there looking for baby items and diapers, beds and furniture and things for their home, but most of the requests are for bills. Electric, water, phones, these are the biggest things people need. We have people who are simply asking for food. There really are a lot of people in need right now, Gollihue said. Administrators keep a close eye on other local groups and Facebook pages to ensure that individuals asking for help arent double dipping and looking to take advantage of the generosity of people. People that are looking for help dont just hop on the page and get approved. If it is bills they are looking for help with, they have to have exhausted all other community options before we can help them ... We want to help people out and this is a place to support you but if you cant try to help yourself and others then what good is any of it doing, Gollihue said. Though weeding out the rare bad apples is part of the job, Gollihue is happy to know that those cases dont come up very often and that the vast majority of people are honest about their circumstances and appreciative of any help they receive. The people who get he lp are most definitely appreciative. They come up to me balling their eyes out, hugging me and thanking me. And they give back. Once they get helped, a lo t of people turn right around and help. They may not be able to give financially, but there are people making calls trying to track down beds and help someone els e in need, Gollihue said. Gollihue believes that the group has been a positive aspect in the lives of families in Highlands County.

C M Y K By MIKE SCHNEIDER and KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressSANFORD Aprosecutor in George Zimmermans murder trial on Tuesday tried to pick apart the statements of a Sanford Police detective w ho had been called as a prosecution witness a day before but gave testimony that seemed to benefit the defense. Prosecutor Bernie de la Rionda began by asking the judge to strike from the r ecord a statement Detective Chris Serino made Monday in which he said he found c redible Zimmermans account of how he got into a f ight with Trayvon Martin. De la Rionda argued the statement was improper b ecause one witness isnt allowed to give an opinion o n the credibility of another witness. Defense attorney Mark OMara argued it was proper because Serino was vetting Zimmermans veracit y in his probe. Judge Debra Nelson told j urors to disregard the statement. This is an improper comm ent, the judge said. De la Rionda then quest ioned Serino about his opinion given Monday that he didnt believe Zimmerman d isplayed any ill will or spite to Martin. Prosecutors must prove there was ill will, spite or a depraved mind by the defendant to get a secondd egree murder conviction. De la Rionda played back a police call Zimmerman had made to report Martin in the neighborhood: Zimmerman u ses an expletive and punks and then says, These a-------. They always get away. The prosecutor a sked the investigator if those words showed some spite, and Serino conceded it could be construed that way. Next, de la Rionda chall enged Serinos contention that he found Zimmermans story without major inconsistencies. The prosecutor played back Zimmermans p olice interview in which investigators question Zimmerman about small differences in the neighborhood volunteers story. The prosecutor also pointed out Zimmerman claimed that after he shot Martin, he spread out the teens arms. But a photo taken immediately after the shooting shows Martins arms under his body. Is that inconsistent with the defendants statement he spread the arms out? de la Rionda asked. That position, yes it is, Serino said. But under cross examination, Serino said Zimmermans description of Martins body position was consistent with the medical examiners report. Later, in response to Serinos cross-examination testimony that hed seen a convenience store video that showed Martin in a hooded sweatshirt, de la Rionda asked, Are you saying in Seminole County, its illegal for someone to wear a hoodie at night? No sir. Im not, Serino said. It was Serinos second day on the witness stand. He and another investigator, Doris Singleton, testified Monday about their investigation as jurors heard a series of police interviews in which the detectives grew more pointed in their questioning. In an early interview, just hours after the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting, Singleton recounted that Zimmerman noticed a cross she was wearing and said: In Catholic religion, its always wrong to kill someone. Singleton said she responded, If what youre telling me is true, I dont think that what God meant was that you couldnt save your own life. But in an interview days later, Singleton and Serino suggest that Zimmerman was running after Martin before the confrontation. They also ask Zimmerman why he didnt explain to Martin why he was following him. The officers insinuate that Martin may have been creeped out by being followed. Do you think he was scared? Singleton asked Zimmerman in one video interview. Under cross-examination, though, Serino said Zimmerman seemed straightforward in his answers and didnt show any anger when talking about Martin. Serino said the increasingly pointed questioning is a tactic known asa challenge interview, where detectives try to break someones story to make sure theyre telling the truth. Zimmerman has said he fatally shot the unarmed black teen in self-defense in February, 2012, because he says Martin was banging his head into a concrete sidewalk behind townhomes in a gated community. Zimmerman, 29, could get life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder. The state argued during its opening statement that Zimmerman profiled and followed Martin in his truck and called a police dispatch number before he and the teenager got into a fight. Zimmerman has denied the confrontation had anything to do with race, as Martins family and their supporters have claimed. A44-day delay in Zimmermans arrest led to protests around the nation; he was ultimately charged by a Florida special prosecutor. www.newssun.comNews-SunW ednesday, July 3, 2013Page A5 CENTRAL SECURITY; 3.639"; 3"; Black plus three; process, #1 with changes; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 1 1 2 2 0 0 PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 3.639"; 16"; Black plus three; process, 100910 publix liquour; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 8 8 9 9 9 9 LAKELAND COMFORT SHOES; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, 7/3,5; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 9 9 7 7 9 9 Martial Arts America 2x3 00030990 NEWS-SUN Judge strikes detective statements on Zimmerman MCT Sanford police officer Chris Serino listens to a question during cross-examination from defense attorney Mark O'Mara during the George Zimmerman trial in Seminole circuit court in Sanford on Tuesday.

Additional visitation will be from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturday, July 6, 2013 at Stephenson-Nelson followed by a memorial serviceat 12:30 p.m. at Sebring Parkway church of Christ with Brother Mike Blare officiating.

Arrangements have been entrusted to: Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home Sebring, Fla. 33870 863-385-0125 stephensonnelsonfh.com Obituaries Community Briefs Thats not only Lake Lotela but also Verona, Tulane and Viola have poor performance, he said. Others in the Avon Park area, like l akes Glenada and Lelia, have a muck bottom and appear to not have the same kind of transmissivity issues. Ford said it appeared that lakes in the Sebring and Lake Placid areas also do not seem t o share those problems. But the problems have not always b een there. Ford pointed to docks around Lake Lotela that were cons tructed in the 1940s and 1950s. Those are made out of concrete. You can see where they have been pitted so the levels were up higher then, he said. Those docks all are w ell out of the water now. One theory is that some of the problem may be from activities outside the area, and even outside the county. There are indications that deep well pumping for drinking, citrus irrigation and industry may have lowered the Floridian Aquifer significantly enough to affect the local lake levels. That deeper aquifer has been drawn down and it takes a while for it to recover, he said. Thats where state minimal flow and level rules kick in, with levels recorded below a certain mark mean permitted surface water or groundwater withdrawals would be stopped, due to what are perceived to be harm to the lakes. There also are questions as to whether more water is being held artificially in the waters upstream from Lake Lotela. For instance there is a structure on Lake Glenada. That has been set at a certain level since the 1970s, he said. Some people have asked if that might be lowered to allow for a greater water flow. Ford said any such action would involve yet more studies and more permitting. Highlands County commissioners approved an agreement with the Southwest Florida Water Management District at their Tuesday night meeting in an effort to help get work started on the project. Two meetings will be held as part of that accord. The one currently planned session is the first. Asecond will be held sometime in the fall to discuss water quality. Continued from A1 Lake levels around AP to be studied MILTON (AP) Deputies and animal control workers removed some 200 cats from a home on Monday. Allan and Ella Kirkman of Milton face several charges, including nuisance injurious to health and selling or letting diseased animals roam. The Kirkmans have operated a non-profit, no kill animal shelter called Kirkman Kattery Rescue out of their home for years. Their company website says theyve been trying to raise funds to build a facility for the cats. The cats were taken to a local animal shelter. For the time being we have the space to house and care for them, said animal control interim director Dale Hamilton. Couple arrested after 200 cats seized in Milton maintain their own obligat ions, as in paying their m ortgage. Does the property owner have a job? Gene R eece asked. County Administrator June F isher answered questions from commissioners regarding the program. County dollars go to Tallahassee, she said, where they join a larger pool. That money is redistributed by the state legislature and returned to the county. The dollars are earmarked for housing, meaning the funds cannot be used for anything else. Should the county refuse the funds, the state simply gives them to another count y. The commission agreed unanimously to the subordination of lien in the specific case before it, but also gave direction to staff to ensure a new, tighter supervision policy is developed. It was also agreed the county staff prepare a presentation explaining the program and what it does. Continued from A1 County role in housing loans questioned PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) They were fathers and expectant fathers. High s chool football players and former Marines. Smoke-eaterssons and firstgeneration firefighters. What bound the members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots together was a love of hard work and arduous adventure, and a willingness to risk their lives to protect others. And now, 19 families share a bond of grief. All but one of the Prescott-based c rews 20 members died Sunday when a wind-whipped wildfire overran them on a mountainside northwest of Phoenix. It was the nations biggest loss of firefighters in a wildfire in 80 years and the d eadliest single day for fire crews since the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. In the firefighting world, Hotshot is t he name given to those willing to go to the hottest part of a blaze. They are the best of the best, crews filled with advent ure-seekers whose hard training ready them for the worst. We are routinely exposed to extreme environmental conditions, long work hours, long travel hours and the most demanding of fireline tasks, the groups website says. Comforts such as beds, showers and hot meals are not always common. Above all, the crews members prided themselves on their problem-solving, teamwork and ability to make decisions in a stressful environment. Its a younger mans game, said Prescott Fire Chief Dan Fraijo, and the statistics bear him out. Of those who died, 14 were in their 20s; their average age was just 26. At least three members of the crew were following in their fathersfirefighting footsteps. Kevin Woyjeck, 21, used to accompany his dad, Capt. Joe Woyjeck, to the Los Angeles County Fire Department, sometimes going on ride-alongs. The firehouse was like a second home to him, said Keith Mora, an inspector with that agency. He wanted to become a firefighter like his dad and hopefully work hand-inhand, Mora said Monday outside a fire station in Seal Beach, Calif., where the W oyjeck family lives. He was a great kid. Unbelievable sense of humor, work ethic that was not parallel to many kids Ive seen at that age. He wanted to work very hard. Chris MacKenzie, 30, grew up in Californias San Jacinto Valley, where father Michael was a former captain with the Moreno Valley Fire Department. An avid snowboarder, MacKenzie joined the U.S. Forest Service in 2004, then transferred two years ago to the Prescott Fire Department. Dustin DeFord, 24, was a Baptist preachers son, but it was firefighting that captured his imagination. Hotshots lived the meaning of the word

C M Y K BEATRICE THOMPSON Mrs. Beatrice Adele Thompson, age 96, of Mableton, Ga., passed away Monday, July 1, 2013. Born Nov. 13, 1916, Mrs. Thompson had been a lifelong resident of New Jersey before moving to Florida and later Georgia. She was the daughter of Frank and Dina Wanner, who preceded her in death. She was the wife of over 60 years to Herbert Clifford Thompson, who preceded her in death. Surviving are two daughters: Beverly Vanderpoel of Mableton, Marilyn Savarese of Wylie, Texas; five grandchildren: Deborah Jean Savarese-Kizewski, Joseph Howard Savarese, Patrick Donald Savarese, David Robert Vanderpoel, Dina Vanderpoel Scott; and nine great-grandchildren: Julia Marie Savarese, Macy Noel Savarese, Johnathan Lawrence Savarese, Megan Nicole Savarese, Natalie Anne Savarese, Abigail Ruth Vanderpoel, Kenneth Owen Vanderpoel, Kendall Reese Scott and Kayden Seares Scott. Associated PressPRESCOTT, Ariz. An erratic wildfire driven by ferocious and shifting winds curled around the location of a team of Arizona Hotshot firefighters, cutting off their access to a safety zone and creating a death trap that quickly consumed them, two fire officials have confirmed based on a map of how the tragedy unfolded by The Associated Press. The map shows that the 19 highly trained Hotshots were just over a quarter of a mile northwest of the safety zone using chain saws, axes and other gear to build a line between the wildfire and the small town of Y arnell on Sunday. But the fire, which was northeast of the team, suddenly changed directions after the winds shifted nearly 180 degrees and cut off their access to the safety zone, a large ranch property. The APconfirmed the location of the fire crew, their safety zone and the fires advance based on interviews with people who knew what happened. After building the map, its accuracy was confirmed by Dan Ware, a spokesman for the crews battling the blaze, and Prescott Fire spokesman Wade Ward. Officials said the 20th member of the Prescottbased Granite Mountain Hotshots, who served as a lookout for the Hotshot crew and whose exact location during the fire is unclear, was on a hilltop and warned the team that erratic winds had shifted the fires direction. The Hotshot crew was working to build a line to keep the fire from getting into Yarnell, working on the southeast end of the fire with the wind blowing generally to the northeast. But a thunderstorm that developed north of the fire caused the winds to shift so they were coming from the north, blowing the fire right toward the Hotshots. The crew had designated a ranch house and its surrounding cleared area as their safety zone, a spot they should be able to reach if things went bad. But the fire moved too fast for them to reach the ranch house, killing the 19 firefighters; the lookout, 21-year-old Brendan McDonough, was able to make it to safety. Sanders has held fundraisers over the past couple of months with local businesses, including Ruby Tuesday and Dairy Queen, to help fund the project. Abank account was also opened up for individuals wishing to donate to the fundraiser. The fundraiser collected approximately $1,600 for the family, which was given to them on a debit card along with the Disney tickets, hotel vouchers and toys for Kenna. Kenna, who has an unspecified form of mitochondrial disease, has been ailing since birth. With her constant schedule of doctors, specialists, test, emergency room visits and surgeries, Kenna has yet to have a normal day as a child. Kenna will soon be surrounded by princesses and magic, rather than waiting rooms and doctors. Stephens is especially grateful that the trip includes her entire family siblings Jarek and Kayne and Kennas father Josh. We cant wait, said Stephens. Her health worries me but shes been in better spirits since her daddy has been home with us than she has been in a long time. The excitement takes over and she fights her bodys limits. She doesnt want to be hooked up to her feeding gear, doesnt want to take breaks to cool down or rest. Mitochondrial kids easily wear down and overheat quickly. The project was much more than just an ordinary trip to Disney for Stephens and her family, it is a welldeserved few days off from a constant reminder of the health battles they are facing. Stephens is grateful for all the support of the community for her and her family. It is great but overwhelming, too. So many who dont know Kenna personally felt compelled to get her to Disney. And all the other non-related personal gifts for her specifically. (Im) speechless, Stephens said. Stephens also thanked Sanders for her altruism and hard work with the fundraisers so that everything could become possible. I did not do this on my own. God provided some amazing people to help me, Sanders said. Photo by Mountain Top Kenna Sherwood, 4, dressed in her princess gear will soon be surrounded by the princesses she loves. Sherwood and her family recently received Disney passes, hotel vouchers and more after a local fundraiser raised money for the family to visit the park for the first time.

Continued from A1 Kenna, family ready for Disney World fantasy trip Wildfire cut off Hotshots access to safety zone CAIRO (AP) Security forces boosted p ositions near a protest camp by supporters of ousted leader Mohammed Morsi as authorities Saturday plotted their next m oves after violence claimed at least 36 lives across the country and deepened the battle lines in the divided nation. In a further sign of the concern the unrest could spin out of control, Egypts i nterim president held talks with the army chief and interior minister whose s nub of Morsis authority earlier this week tipped the s cales against Egypts first elected leader. The Interior Ministry a dded that at least eight policemen have been killed s ince the eve of the antiMorsi protests on June 30, marking his anniversary in office. No other details on the deaths were immedia tely given. Officials have briefly d etained top figures from Morsis Muslim Brotherhood and have kept t he toppled president from the public eye, under d etention in an undisclosed location. But Morsis supporters h ave vowed to take to the streets until the toppled Islamist leader is reinstated. His opponents, meanwhile, have called for m ore mass rallies to defend what they call the gains of June 30, a reference to the start of massive protests to call for the o uster of the president. There were no reports of m ajor clashes in Egypt after dawn Saturday, foll owing a night of street battles that added to an overall death toll of at least 75 in the past week. Later, in the northern S inai peninsula, gunmen shot dead a Christian priest while he shopped for food in an outdoor market on Saturday. It was not immediately clear if the shooting was linked to the political crisis, but there has been a backlash against Christians since just before and after Morsis ouster. Attacks have occurred on members of the minority by Islamists in at least three provinces south of Egypt. Christians account for about 10 percent of Egypts 90 people. Morsis Brotherhood and hard-line allies claim the Christians played a big part in inciting against the ousted leader. In Egypts capital Cairo, only a fraction of the citys normally heavy traffic was on the streets Saturday amid worries that violence could flare again. Security forces stepped up their presence near the largest concentration of Morsi supporters on the streets: A sit-in outside a mosque in Cairos eastern Nasr City district, a traditionally Muslim Brotherhood stronghold.

C M Y K SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) For many people gathered to watch July Fourth fireworks at a Southern California park, it took time to realize the wild chain of explosions werent just part of the show. But those up close Thursday night knew immediately that something was wrong. They included Paulina Mulkern, who had to shove her 4-year-old cousin under a lawn chair as shrapnel came flying then shielded a 7-year-old cousin with her body as scorching debris flew overhead. You feel the big old heat come right over your back, Mulkern said Friday, still shaking a day after the chain reaction of accidental explosions at an annual fireworks show that had been put on since 1970 in Simi Valley northwest of Los Angeles. Thirty-nine people ranging in ages from 17 months to 78 years old were injured. Some had burns and shrapnel wounds, and some were trampled, authorities and hospital officials said. The injured included 12 children. Only three remained hospitalized Friday night. One was being treated by specialists at a burn center in West Hills, and two more were in fair condition at a community medical center in Simi Valley, hospital officials said. Mulkern said she went into shock after being hit by a flying piece of debris that left her with bruises and red marks on her back, trembling badly as she was carried to a road where rescuers stripped off most of her clothes and wrapped her in a blanket. I was really terrified, she said. Every time someone launched a firework it got me into panic mode. Cellphone videos captured a frantic scene among the crowd of 10,000. Fireworks exploded in big balls of sparks close to the ground, and smoke enveloped the park grounds. People screamed and ran. Associated PressSANFORD Jurors in the George Zimmerman trial headed into their weekend with a lot of courtroom drama and conflicting testimony to digest. Fridays action-packed session saw the prosecution rest its case, and the judge reject a defense request to acquit Zimmerman of seconddegree murder in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year. The mothers of both Martin and Zimmerman listened to the same 911 recording of someone screaming for help, and each said she was convinced the voice was that of her own son. The question of whose voice is on the recording could be crucial to the jury in deciding who was the aggressor in the confrontation between the neighborhood watch volunteer and the teenager. I heard my son screaming, Martins mother, Sybrina Fulton, said firmly after she was played a recording in which distant, high-pitched wails could be heard in the background as a Zimmerman neighbor asked a dispatcher to send police. Moments later on the call, there was a gunshot and the crying stopped. Gladys Zimmerman, though, testified she recognized the voice all too well: My son. Asked how she could be certain, she said: Because its my son. Martins half brother, 22year-old Jahvaris Fulton, testified that the cries came from the teen. And Zimmermans uncle, Jose Meza, said he knew it was Zimmermans voice from the moment I heard it. ... I thought, that is George. After Fridays session was over, defense attorney Mark OMara told reporters there will be a lot of other witnesses who will testify that the voice on the call is George Zimmermans. But well just present the case, he said. Were just getting started. Gladys Zimmerman was the defenses first witness. OMara said he expects to call several of the states 38 witnesses back as well when trial resumes Monday, and he left open the possibility that he would try to introduce toxicology evidence showing Martin had marijuana in his system at the time he died. Judge Debra Nelson has denied the admission of that evidence for the time being. OMara may also call witnesses who he says have stated that Zimmerman was not a racist. OMara said he could rest his case as soon as next week. Immediately after the state rested Friday, he asked Nelson to acquit Zimmerman, arguing that the prosecution had failed to prove its case. OMara said an enormous amount of evidence showed that Zimmerman acted in self-defense, and he argued that Zimmerman had reasonable grounds to believe he was in danger, and acted without the ill will, hatred and spite necessary to prove second-degree murder. But prosecutor Richard Mantei countered: There are two people involved here. One of them is dead, and one of them is a liar. Mantei told the judge that Zimmerman had changed his story, that his account of how he shot Martin was a physical impossibility, and that he exaggerated his wounds. After listening to an hour and a half of arguments from both sides, Nelson refused to throw out the charge. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, July 7, 2013Page A9 DR.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID The age old nursery rhyme Rain, Rain Go Away was certainly the mindset in Lake Placid o ver the weekend and, literall y, spilling into the early w eek as the Ozone District tournament is trying to reach its conclusion. After Saturdays opening rounds, which saw Avon Park topping Okeechobee and Sebring getting past Lake Placid, with Sebring then getting a second win, besting Avon Park, things looked to m ove into Sunday to set the s tage for the championship. But the relentless rains wreaked havoc and washed away the day, moving the next round to Monday night, when Lake Placid charged into the title round with an 11-0 win over Avon Park. And even that game wasnt without delay. Originally slated for a 5 p.m. start Monday, with the title round to serve as the night cap, continued showers caused another revamping of the schedule. When the rains finally let up and a hurried clean up of the field made conditions playable, the junior Dragons and Devils got underway a little past 7:30 p.m. and Lake Placid wasted little time jumping out in front. Katwan Ward drew a leadoff walk and moved to third on an Erskin Toliver single to right. Toliver stole second and moved to third when a pitch got away and scored Ward, with Cody Carpenters ground out bringing Toliver in for a 2-0 lead. Quwesmael Sholtz took the mound for the Dragons and worked around Gunner Leonard reaching on an error to start the inning. Lake Placid then blew it open with a nine-run second to all but put this one away early. Sholtz reached on an error to start it off, moving to second on a Wyatt Moore grounder to second. A von Parks Cooper Tyler tried making a swipe tag of Sholtz as he ran by, couldnt quite reach him, but alertly threw to first for the out. Kamari Brown, however, soon sent a pitch into the orange groves beyond the center-field fence doubling the lead to 4-0. But the Dragons were just getting started. Jackson Griffin drew a walk and one out later, Lane Graziano, Ward and Toliver each worked the count for walks, bringing another run in. Carpenter then laced a shot into right, scoring two, and when the throw home got away, Toliver scored and allowed Carpenter to motor into second. Cody Jolley then also drew a walk and Royston Daleys single through the right side scored two more. Awalk to Jace Johnston and an errant pick-off throw brought Daley in and the lead stood at 11-0. Jolley then came on to pitch the second and was greeted by a lead-off single up the middle by Mason Huertas. Athrow behind the runner from the Lake Placid catcher got away and rolled into right field, sending Huertas scampering toward second. But a strong throw from right nabbed the runner and cleared the bases with one out.

Special to the News-SunWatkins Glen, NY History was in the making all weekend at Watkins Glen International. It started with the 100th GT3 Cup Race on Saturday and ended with IMSAGT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohamas Ashley Freiberg becoming the first woman to claim an overall GT3 Cup Challenge victory in North America. Freiberg is the second class winner in US GT3 Cup Challenge history, joining Melanie Snow who won her first Gold Cup race in 2009 at Sebring International Raceway and ultimately went on to win the Gold Cup championship that year. Congratulations to Ashley on her inaugural win in the Porsche IMSAGT3 Cup Challenge, said Jens Walther, President & CEO, Porsche Motorsports North America. The Series is a great platform for young driver talent and, clearly, Ashley has proven herself among the elite drivers in a very strong field. To come on the weekend of the Series100th race, seems very appropriate. IMSAGT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama driver Freiberg led the field of 26 flag-toflag in the 101st race to become the first female Platinum Cup female winner as well. Etching her name in the record books is nothing new to the EFFORTRacing driver who has a long resume of first female overall championship and race wins including becoming the first woman in history to win an overall Skip Barber Racing Series championship. We couldnt have asked for a better weekend here at Watkins Glen International, said IMSADevelopment Series Director Steven Sewell. We had the return of IMSAand Porsche to Th e Glen with the 100th race yesterday and then to have the first overall female winner in GT3 Cup today is amazing. The 21-year-old Freiberg has her sights set on the IMSAGT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama championship after taking the top step for the first time in her rookie season. With the win, Freiberg broke the tie leading into the weekend and is now the sole points leader with 96, followed by Madison Snow of Freiberg historic winner at the Glen See ASH, Page B4 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Kamari Brown overpowered this pitch, sending it into the orange groves for a two-run homer in Lake Placids 11-0 win Monday. Lake Placid powers toward Ozone finale See LP, Page B5 By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACIDSummer rains, you can never predict them. Unless, of course, you are a Dixie baseball veteran. In which case, you can always count on the rain to put a damper on summer tournaments. This was proven a fact as the AAAteams of Avon Park and Okeechobee waited out not one, but two days to play the game that would determine who would be given an opportunity for the championship. Already seeded for the final game was Sebring, who had a bye in the winners bracket and had, at the time, been undefeated. This left Okeechobee and A von Park on their last leg, both with one loss and the threat of another to send them home. After postponing Sundays afternoon game until Monday at 5 p.m., and then another two-hour rain delay that night, it seemed the game would finally get underway as the clouds parted. Being the visiting team, Avon Park took an early jump in the first, bringing in four runs that would go unanswered in the bottom of the inning. The starting Okeechobee southpaw continued to struggle on the mound, loading the bases in the top of the second before a reliever would be brought in. Despite this lineup change, six more Avon Park sluggers still found their way around the diamond to put the 10-run mercy rule into effect. The key to this inning seemed to be some carefully laid bloopers, just beyond Soggy start delays Dixie AAA Districts See AP, Page B5 News-Sun photo by LAUREN WELBORN Avon Park starting pitcher Mason Price eyes his target and readies to fire Monday night. Special to the News-SunLAKELAND The Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team (HHST) and Lake Placid Aquatics (LPA) competed in the TBAYInvitational at the Ed Gandy Pool Complex in Lakeland on Saturday and Sunday, June 29-30.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING The tournament without end was finally complete late Thursday morning, with the Sebring Ozone All-Stars taking a 100 win over Lake Placid for the District Championship. With both teams having secured a spot in the Dixie Ozone State Tournament, scheduled for next weekend at East Lakeland, it was a matter of deciding the title and resulting seeds for state. Having trounced the junior Dragons in the opening round at Lake Placid, Sebring was in the drivers seat heading into the finale, needing just one more win to lock it up. But Mother Nature, Cody Carpenter and the Dragon bats werent about to let it end early. Needing two wins over the lil Blue Streaks, Tuesday nights scheduled finale was washed away by the rains and recommenced W ednesday evening. The clouds cleared enough for the two teams to take the field and for Carpenter to h old Sebring down. They had a good game p lan and Carpenter throws r eally good offspeed pitches that kept us off balance, Streak head coach Anthony Gaines said. Hes got good knuckler and we werent able to make the adjustments. Which was something the Lake Placid bats did after being held in check by Josh Rivera in the opening-round loss. After a Dayvon Terry homer just cleared the fence in the first for a 2-0 Sebring lead, the Dragons went to work. Cody Jolley drew a leadoff walk and moved to third when Erskin Toliver reached on an error. Toliver soon stole second and on Carpenters fielders choice, Jolley came in to score and with an error on the play, all runners, including Carpenter, were safe. Toliver scored on a wild pitch to tie it at 2-2, before Katwan Ward belted one over the center-field fence for a two-run homer and a 42 lead. Walks to Royston Daley and Jackson Griffin sandwiched a Quwesmael Sholtz single, a Wyatt Moore RBI single and a scoring ground out by Jace Johnston. Another run came in on a pitch that got away and the lead after one stood at 7-2. Sebring got one run back in the top of the second on a Drew Morris RBI double, but Lake Placid added three more in their half of the frame, highlighted by a Jolley home run to left. The Streaks again notched a run in the third, with Louis Perez knocking in Rivera with a single to right. But the Dragons again answered back. With two on, Jolley smashed his second homer of the game to up the lead to 13-4. Toliver reached on an error, stole second and came around on a Kamari Brown single, who reached second SPORTS B SECTION Inside This Section Hurricane Swim-A-Thon . . .B3 FSU extends Hamilton . . .B3 Cobb makes progress . . .B4 News-Sun Sunday, July 7, 2013 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE The Sebring Ozone All-Stars hoist their district championship trophy after Thursday mornings win.

Johnson and his partner Jim Kentfield won silver medals in doubles. Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Special athletes from three counties competed in the Special STARS District Bowling competition on Saturday, June 29, at Cozs Bowling Center. The event opened with the Lake Placid Elks Lodge presenting the flag while Marti Capodiferro, of Lake Placid, sang the national anthem. Bowlers competed in singles, doubles, teams and ramps. Medals and ribbons were presented and a lunch was served after the competition. Cracker Trail 4-H Club assisted with the awards. During the event, Highlands County took home 31 medals while Okeechobee won 17 medals and Hardee took 15 medals. There were 70 athletes competing. Highlands won five gold, 15 silver and 11 bronze medals. Okeechobee had 12 gold and five silver medals. Hardee had five gold, eight silver and two bronze medals. Amazingly enough, Okeechobee only came with 17 athletes and every one of them returned home with a medal around their neck. This included their gold medal team of six bowlers Joseph Berry, Nathan Perdue, David Westgate, Joe Borg, Mike Spelts and Tom Gorney. They bowled two games with a total of 1,759 with their handicap. Highlands County had two teams that bowled against them in the competition but they received silver and bronze. The Highlands County silver medal winning team consisted of Gerald Bass, Eddie Thomas, Katie Gibson, Travis Moss, Greg Robinson and John Smith. They had a 1,690 score. The bronze winners were Eva Monk, Ricky Marino, Larry Rivers, Annie Horn, Beth Horn and Nicole Lew is. They had a 1,610 score. In doubles, Okeechobee once again swept the field taking firsts. Jodi Main and Rhonda Crews took first in their division while Joanna Austin and Roger Smith won first in their bracket. Kandi McFarland and Ashley Berry, of Okeechobee, teamed up in assisted ramps to win gold. Okeechobee also won silver in doubles with Jessica Roby and Sara Jo Hill in one heat and Connie Doyle and Steve Kotch in another. Hardee Countys Jack Garnett and Lewis Simpson won bronze in doubles. Highlands Countys Jacqueline Furry and Becky Anders also won bronze in Special athletes compete in district bowling See STARS, Page B3 By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondent LAKE PLACID Three days and eight innings later, Avon Park finally trumped Okeechobee in Dixie AAAaction to set themselves to play in the championship game against Sebring. After reconvening from Monday nights rainout, A von Park was ahead of Okeechobee 13-10 in the bottom of the fifth. The delays had occurred just as Okeechobee rallied back from a 10-run deficit, yet time would not slow them down. Okeechobee managed one run in the bottom of the fifth which would go unanswered by Avon Park in the sixth. All that was needed was three outs, and Avon Park would earn the win. Okeechobee, however, had other plans in mind. Loading the bases multiple times in the innings worked to their advantage as they tied the game. This led into a scoreless extra inning. In the top of the eighth, Avon Parks Dawson Bryant slid safely home after a passed ball to put A von Park back in the lead. Again, only three outs stood between Avon Park and the championship game. After eight intense innings of play, as well as three days worth of rain delays, Avon Park earned the win and prepared to take on Sebring. Of course, one more rain delay would take the tournament to another day and a new location as the championship went underway.

Mr. Greg Foster of GSF Enterprises has been gracious enough to incorporate his lot into our lease, on which we would like to construct a NBA-regulation size basketball court, STR8 Up president Sammy Telesco said. This will be a oneof-a-kind, outdoor, regulation-sized court in Lake Placid. The youth currently play basketball on the back parking lot area and have long since outgrown it. They need the challenge of a full court and higher goals. William E. Lewis and Associates have donated the NBA-style fiberglass goals. Bevis Construction and Concrete has once again partnered with the program to provide the labor for this considerable project. STR8 UPis seeking to raise $7,500 for 80 yards of concrete. STR8 UPis asking for donations towards the goal one quarter of a yard of concrete is $25, half a yard is $50, and one yard of concrete is $100. All donations are welcome.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Highlands Hurricanes participated in their Swim-AThon fundraiser on Friday, July 5, at the Highlands County Family YMCA, with 26 swimmers attempting the 5,000 yard (2.84 mile) challenge. In all, 12 were able to complete the entire 200 lengths. There were 13 swimmers attempting the challenge for the first time, with two being up to the task. Those who finished the wearying distance ranged in age from 10to 20-years old with Andrew Brown finishing in 1:09:05 for the fastest time of the day. Kyria Wickman, at 10years old, was the youngest to finish the full 200 laps, and along with 16-year old Anna Freitas, were the two first-timers to complete the swim. Others going the distance were Shannon Cummings, Griffin Chynoweth, Gabriella Dion, Tevin Bullard, Rachel Todd, Lawrence Luepschen, Clara Simpson, Seth Moon and Zach Geitner. Max Carlisle, age 10, and 9-year old Taber Reed completed 180 and 166 lengths, respectively, while 10-year old Mackenzie Moore and 11-year old Isabel Vargas each completed 160 lengths. The rest of the youngsters giving it their all, most in their first year, were J.J. Mason (11-years old, 150 laps), Noah Roth (11, 144), Anthony Barcinas (10, 122), Jordyn Wickham (8, 120), Sophia Kogelschatz (8, 110), Brooke Moon (8, 110), Kevin Barcinas (8, 102), Gerrett Kogelschatz (10, 100), Caroline Dion (9, 100) and Leila Henry (6, 90). Next for the Hurricanes will be a local meet hosted by Lake Placid Aquatics at Lake Placid High School Saturday morning, July 13. Hurricanes headstrong in Swim-A-Thon STARS strike and spare it up The bats were cracking as well for Sebrings undefeated AAAteam as they took on Avon Park for the everdelayed championship game. With the tournament moved to a different location and played at an earlier time to avoid the rain, the teams finally saw its end as Sebring mercy-ruled Avon P ark in four innings. The key for the day was hitting, with every contact adding up to base hits and RBIs as Avon Park struggled to regain the rhythm they had the night before. In the end, it was Conner Delaneys RBI single with t he bases loaded that would bring in Cope Brewer to instate the ten-run mercy rule. It has been a really long week trying to get these games in with the weather, said Avon Park coach Jason Massey. Im super proud of these kids; I could not ask for a better fight in kids. The difference in this game was hits we hit the ball we hit the ball right to them, they hit the ball and put the ball in play. We came out and we finally put the ball in play today, the kids quit thinking about it and they just started swinging, said Sebring coach Kirby Whitehouse. My hat is off to Avon Park, they are a tough team. They are taught baseball the right way and they do a good job with them. Our pitching is spot-on right now, he added, highlighting on the starting efforts of Jonathan Delgado. Weve got great parents. They would do anything for you and anything for these kids. Why, even the bat-boy Carson Andrews contributes his hustle to keeping the team in high spirits, he continued. All the way around, from the fence to the players to the bat boys, they all clicked this week. With Avon Park and Sebring both in good spirits, it was definitely a great Fourth of July for the books.

AAAs take District Title Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State head basketball coach Leonard Hamilton has received a contract extension that will keep him with the Seminoles through the 201617 season. Hamilton led Florida State to the 2012 ACC Championship and helped make the Seminoles as the third winningest program in the ACC since the start of the 2005-06 season. Hamilton was named ACC Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2012. The university announced the contract extension Wednesday. Besides the Seminoles success on the court, the school reports that Hamilton has graduated his players at a rate of better than 94 percent since his March 2002 arrival in Tallahassee. That rate exceeds the national average. While the ACC already has a reputation for being a competitive basketball conference, school officials expect it to be even tougher this coming season with the addition of Syracuse, Pittsburgh, and Notre Dame. Florida State extends Hamiltons contract

Im still taking it all in but I know that my team has worked hard and Ive w orked hard, Freiberg said. It feels good to know that hard works pays off and g ives us a boost to know we can do this and we are in it for the championship. Freiberg posted the second-fastest time in qualifications, giving her the BBS pole position for Race Two at Watkins Glen International. She pulled away from the rest of the Porsche 911 GT3 Cup cars with Snow and Angel Benitez Jr. before a yellow caution flag came out three minutes in. After the No. 13 entry of David Ostella made contact with the wall just after entry to the Bus Stop and and came to a halt in an unsafe position, a nine-minute caution ensued. In the same lap, 100th race winner Benitez Jr. dropped two wheels on the outside of the track and spun in the carousel and ultimately retired from the race. The NGTMotorsport driver remains third in overall Platinum Cup points standings even without finishing. After the restart, Snow tried to keep up with Freiberg but she throttled up and pulled away building a 1.4-second lead by Lap 9 that increased to a 6.4-second gap by Lap 16. She ultimately finished over 10 seconds ahead of the rest of the field. I was chasing Ashley (Freiberg) and then it went full course yellow, Snow said. On the restart she pulled away from me a little more and then I was fighting off Sloan (Urry) at the end. EFFORTRacing finished with two drivers on the podium with Sloan Urry on the third step. Urry started in eighth and powered his way up to third for his second podium finish of the 2013 season. I feel great, Urry said. We started further back than we wanted but by lap two I found myself in third place so I was really excited. I was hoping the two in front would battle and let me catch them but Ashley (Freiberg) just took off so I put my head down and started chasing Madison (Snow). We got two podium positions for EFFORTRacing and Im happy. Behind the podium finishers, Brett Sandberg in the No. 46 TruSpeed Motorsports car clinched fourth place for his highest finish of the season. Sandberg gained a total of five positions in the race, started back in ninth position. I had a pretty good start, Sandberg said. I got a few passes done early on and managed to avoid the instances. The car was definitely better than yesterday and the guys did a really good job." Abattle for fifth took place behind Sandberg between Masters contender Craig Duerson, Miles Maroney, Colin Thompson and Michael Mills. The group of four were separated by less than two seconds on Lap 17. T wo laps later, Thompson had passed both Duerson and Maroney before contact with the wall on drivers left of Turn 7 ended his day. Ultimately Maroney took the fifth position, just behind his TruSpeed Motorsports teammate Sandberg. MGM Racings John Goetz joined in on the history-making by posting a new Gold Cup lap record to break the time Michael Levitas set in Race One. Goetz turned a time of 1:59.476 for the record and took his second Gold Cup victory of the weekend.

C M Y K Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb has thrown off a mound for the first time since being hit in the head by a line drive last month. Cobb had the bullpen session before Friday nights game against the Chicago White Sox. There is no timetable for when Cobb will pitch in a game. The bullpen went great, Cobb said. It felt like I had before I got injured. Surprising because it usually feels a little awkward out there when you havent been on the mound for a while. Getting on the mound is, obviously, a step in the right direction. I dont think were extremely close, but were a lot faster along than we expected. Cobb said his vertigo symptoms have improved over the past week. Its a little bit better, but it should within the next couple weeks, listening to what the doctors say, a drastic improvement in where we are right now, Cobb said. Cobb was struck in the right ear by a ball hit by Kansas Citys Eric Hosmer on June 15 and was hospitalized overnight after being carted off the field. Anytime hes making some progress, thats great, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. o nthe throw to the plate. Ward then singled to score Brown and the lead stood at 15-4, with Lake Placid needing just three outs to win on the mercy rule. Jorge Martinez looked to keep hope alive when he r eached on an error, but C arpenter got the next three batters to secure the win and f orce a rubber match to decide the title. I wasnt expecting this, h ead coach Tracy Carpenter said. They just kept on hitting. As the teams were readying to resume after a short b reak, Mother Nature again d ecided to interrupt the proceedings, unleashing a torr ent that would push things b ack yet again. The teams reconvened T hursday morning at the M ax Long Recreational Complex and any moment um Lake Placid may have h ad from the night before w as soon put in check by Sebring starter Dayvon T erry. The rain actually helped u s because we were able to p ut that loss behind us and c ome out fresh, Gaines said. And we knew we were i na good spot because we h ad Dayvon eligible to pitch the whole game. After a scoreless first, the Streaks put five on the board i n the second, with Perez k nocking in two with a sing le and RBI singles from D rew Smith, Desmond Gaines and Rivera. The Dragons threatened in their half of the inning, with W ard reaching on an error and one out later, Brown doubling off the right-field w all. But Terry struck out the n ext two hitters to keep Lake P lacid off the board. One more dose of precipitation came midway through the contest, as a brief downp our served as a reminder of the long week. But the kids, by now quite accustomed to the daily deluge, played on. Sebring got an RBI from Hunter Vanderpool in the third and added four more in the fourth to push the lead to 10-0 and put themselves three outs away from their own mercy-rule win. And Terry would get those three outs to clinch the victory and claim the title at long last. After five days of stops and starts, cheers and moans, and spirited competition between the teams and the elements, this Dixie Ozone District Tournament was in the books.

C M Y K t he reach of the Okeechobee defense. Okeechobee rallied back i n the bottom of the inning with some strategically placed singles of their own t o put the board at 10-3. Clearly, this was just the b oost Okeechobee needed. With the bats now woken up, they brought in six more r uns in the next innings as opposed to the slowing Avon P ark offense, seeing the score at 11-9 as the fourth i nning came to a close. A von Park would come back with three more runs, c apitalizing on passed balls and successfully executed s teals. The action continued in the bottom of the fifth, with O keechobee still creeping in on Avon Parks lead. Right in the rolling thunder of Okeechobees comeback rally, however, the rain took its toll once again. With the condition of the field deemed unplayable due to risk of injury, the game was rescheduled to finish Tuesday night in the bottom of the fifth, with Dillon Jackson fresh on the mound facing Okeechobees Blake Joyner. Joyner will have a slight advantage, given the twoball count as play resumed. However, with two outs already accounted for and the score at 13-10, there was sure to be some flying sparks. For the time being, the game was left with a theatrelike climax to be continued...

Ive got seven good pitchers to choose from, Lake P lacid head coach Tracy Carpenter said. So I am able to move them in and out for an inning or so each. Eli Fautheree showed some strong pitching for Avon Park t he rest of the way, throwing that scoreless third and getting the Dragon side in order i n the fourth. But down to their final t hree outs in hopes of extendi ng the game beyond four i nnings, the Devils were unable to dent the scoreboard sending Lake Placid to the t itle game against Sebring T uesday night. The Tuesday contest was too late for press time and will be recapped, weather permitting, in Fridays NewsSun. The Dragons, having come up short against the junior Streaks Saturday, would need to top them twice to claim the district championship. But as Carpenter explained, after Mondays win, the rest is gravy. This was the one we needed, this was the important game to get out of the way, he said.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Mary Madison, bonsai expert, was the speaker at the Lake Placid Noon Rotary luncheon on June 27. Madison has 30 show trees along with hundreds in training. She has been sculpting miniature trees for 40 years now. Madison has traveled to Japan and China, and has been accepted into an elite Japanese bonsai club in California for a 500-year-old bonsai she produced. I was the first Caucasian and the only woman accepted into the club, Madison said. That was fun. They had a big party for me. We sat on the floor. They were serving sake, she recounted. Her eyes twinkled as she added, They would refill my sake every time I turned my head and that was fun, too. The club named Madisons tree senryu, which means mystical dragon. She has three trees published in the first U.S. National Bonsai Exhibition 2008 book and has won numerous awards and Best of Shows in Orlando and Miami. She has taught all over the United States, and in Canada and the Bahamas, too. She has lived in Lake Placid for four years, moving here from Homestead. Madison said there are many types of plants that can be made into bonsai, including cypress trees, ficus, junipers and Australian pines. Shrubs like indian hawthorne do well, too. Shes even used a gardenia bush and a sea grape. But bonsai isnt all technique. It involves artistic talent as well as instinct. The hardest part is knowing your tree, knowing what it wants, understanding it, said Madison. When asked if she talked to the trees she said Yes, I do and sometimes it is not a very nice conversation. Bonsais like full sun. Whenever your tree does not grow where you want it to grow, you take a branch and wire it to train it to grow there. By cutting the leaves down you train it to grow smaller leaves. Bonsai is a horticultural art form. Horticulture principles keep it alive and healthy and artistic principles make it attractive. Abonsai is living, growing and ever changing; it is never finished. In styling a bonsai too often we dont call on our imagination and attempt to recreate a bonsai in the image of some basic bonsai icon, stoically following styling traditions which came from Japan some 50 years ago. Do not force your tree into a style, rather give it style. Sometimes Madison has trees for years before she decides what style they are going to take. Madison is active in the Bonsai Societies of Florida, a mother club with 23 chapters all over the state.

The T obler Clean-Up Day had Peggy Alexander, Maria, and Renee Carroll, and Jody Morrell helping, and one of them was manning the pontoon that goes after the duck-weed.

C M Y K Family FeaturesHosting planned or impromptu gatherings with friends and family can be a daunting task. From choosing a menu to preparing everything in time, planning a soiree can be challenging, but it doesn't have to be. Entertaining is as easy as it is delicious when you choose pork as your party protein. W ith its ability to pair with a variety of ingredients, vast cut selection and numerous preparation methods, there's a perfect pork dish for every celebration. Whether you're in the mood for grilling, roasting or slow cooking, something savory, sweet or spicy pork is a versatile and budgetfriendly option that allows you to spend less time planning and more time partying. Choosing pork for the menu is simpler than ever with the release of new pork cut names and labels designed to reflect the names of familiar cuts of steak. These new labels, which will feature familiar names such as Ribeye and New York pork chop, will help ease confusion at the meat case and provide cooking directions to help ensure the pork at your gathering is as juicy, tender and flavorful as possible. From tailgating to cocktail parties, a batch of bacon-infused Double Pork Party Sliders will always please a crowd and can be served as a finger-licking appetizer or mouth-watering main dish. These simple sandwiches can be whipped up in a matter of minutes using only one skillet, making prep and clean up a breeze. For the most succulent sliders, make sure to cook pork chops like your favorite steak to an internal temperature between 145 degrees Fahrenheit for medium rare and 160 degrees Fahrenheit for medium, followed by a 3minute rest. Be sure to use a digital cooking thermometer to ensure an accurate final temperature. Discover and share more pork recipes by visiting PorkBeInspired.com/porksocial.

However, it does get in the way of outdoor activities so I spent Sunday cooking at my house and by the end of the rain I had enough food at least three days. I started out with making a pot of chili and then decided to make a composed salad of cous cous and l ima beans with maple cider vinaigrette. Then I wanted to cook a piece of fish so I had a filet of largemouth b ass in my freezer that I caught a couple weeks back at Little Lake Red Water. I seasoned it with fresh rosemary, shallots and chopped garlic, then gently sauted it in olive oil. Right before the fish was done, I tossed about a dozen asparagus spears into the pan and finished the fish as the asparagus became tender. I enjoyed that fish with a side of t he cous cous and a glass of S auvignon Blanc while listening to t he rain drops hitting outside my k itchen windows. I guess I have discovered that I like to cook at my house on a rainy day because if it wasnt raining and I am off I am sure I would be outside doing something fun. If it were up to me, I would prefer it for the sun to shine 24 hours a day. This week I have a recipe for that c ous cous that I hope you will e njoy.

C M Y K Family FeaturesIn the warmer months, we find ourselves outside more o ften, enjoying nature while playing with the kids and m aintaining our lawns. But this additional time spent o utside means more home & garden tools and more opportunity for a mess. Here are some simple tips to keep your outdoor spaces c leaner and more organized: Storage bench -Usea storage bench to keep your gardening gloves, tools and children's outdoor toys. A vailable in a wide variety of sizes and styles, you can find the bench that fits your dcor. Plus, they offer an extra seating area when you have company. Bundle cords No one likes the unsightly appearance or hazard of cords. Before your gatherings, bundle together stereo and electronic chords that are exposed, as well as any cords that run across the lawn. Helpful products, such as Velcro One-Wrap ties, keep your items bound tight and out of sight. Paverpots Use old pavers to create plant containers. Simply stack the pavers together making a square shape. The heavy weight of the pavers keeps the dirt and plant contained together. Deck space Use the space under your deck for additional, out-of-sight storage. Tuck plastic lidded storage containers underneath for easy access to children's sporting goods and toys. Mesh bags Pool toys, rafts and inner tubes need a space to dry off. Use mesh bags so these summer toys properly are properly dried, preventing mildew or molding. Properplant care Stock up on essentials for a healthy garden, including the tools to make plant seedlings thrive, such as Velcro Peel Away seed pots. These pots make it easy to remove the pots without disturbing the roots, making transitions from pot to flower bed flawless. Repurpose furniture Turn old furniture pieces, such as old filing cabinets, into instant garage storage solutions. Take out the drawers of the cabinet and turn it on its side. Each empty drawer area provides a spot for large items like brooms, shovels and rakes. Fence storage Turn old coffee or paint cans into storage bins for smaller gardening tools like hand shovels and pruning shears. For easy access while in the garden, cut holes and use rope to hang around a close-by fence post. Tires Stack old tires on top of each other for an outdoor toy container that kids can easily access. Paint the outside to match the color of your house or whatever color you fancy. End-of-season storage Keep your garage area tidy by organizing similar tools together. Use One-Wrap ties to keep gardening tools grouped together, or to keep hoses tightly coiled and out of the way. This product also comes in a variety of colors and sizes so that you can keep everything neat and organized. For more helpful home dcor, DIYand organization solutions, visit www.velcro.com.

Jurassic Park, Ice AgeDawn of the Dinosaurs, The Land Before Time and Journey to the Center of the Earth are just a few of the films that feature the large, scaly beasts. Even though most of us think of dinosaurs as extinct, there are creatures that still r oam the earth that have not changed much since the days of the C retaceous, Triassic and Jurassic periods. Members of the Crocodylia order, such as the A merican alligator and the American crocodile, continue to l ook and act very much like their ancient relatives. Florida is home to countless alligators and crocodiles. These prehistoric looking creatures are a c ommon sight when trekking through wetlands or wet areas in t he sunshine state. Crocodilians have fascinated people for centuries and they are the closest livi ng thing to a modern day dinosaur that we may ever see on this earth. A ll members of this order are reptiles and have the same basic layout: big heads; four stumpy, short l egs; and long, scaly bodies and tails. They resemble the huge lizard-like creatures from the M esozoic Era, which also had marine lifestyles. According to some scientists, the earliest crocodiles were small, terrestrial, two-legged sprinters, and some were even vegetarians. But by the beginning of the Jurassic period, crocs had abandoned their terrestrial lifestyles and began to adapt to a marine environment developing the features that we are familiar with today such as long bodies, splayed limbs, and narrow, flat, tooth-studded snouts with powerful jaws. Toward the middle of the Cretaceous period, some crocodiles evolved to enormous sizes, such as the Sarcosuchus, which measured about 40 feet long and weighed around 10 tons. Today, most alligators and crocodiles dont grow over about 9 or 10 feet long, but there are a few exceptions. They inhabit wet areas such as marshes, swamps, rivers, ponds, and lakes. Being reptiles, they rely on external sources for their body temperatures. Often times they may be seen basking near the water in an effort to soak up the sun and stay warm. During cooler months, they will seek the shelter of their den, which is normally a burrow or hole located near the water. Alligators are somewhat unusual in their make up. Most reptiles have a three chambered heart, while alligators have four chambers. Mammals and birds share this feature, which has a few advantages. In a four-chambered heart, the oxygenated and deoxygenated blood is separated, resulting in much more efficient respiration needed in warm-blooded animals. Further, crocodilians have a shunt between the left and right aorta allowing mixing of the two types of blood. This feature enables them to transition to a lower metabolic state and allow them to dive for long periods of time. Alligators feed on most anything that is available including fish, turtles, snakes, birds and small mammals. Juvenile alligators dine mostly on insects, invertebrates and amphibians. Alligators stock their prey by sitting still and watching. They wait for something edible to pass nearby and they lunge at it with incredible speed. Even thoug h alligators may look large and sluggish, they can be surprisingly fast, with a top speed of 11 miles per hour over short distances. They can outrun most humans if the need should arise. They also utilize the ir thick, strong tails to push themselves up to five feet out of the water to snag small animals in lowhanging tree branches. Fortunately, alligators are very well adapted to their watery habitats. These prehistoric looking creatures were once in danger of extinction, but laws were put in place to protect them and they ha ve made a miraculous comeback. Highlands County is fortunate to have a healthy population of alligators. Lake Istokpoga alone houses some 3,400 gators of various sizes. The greatest threat to these creatures today is habitat loss and degradation. Hopefully, these croc odilian species will be around for a long time and future generations will be able to see these modern day dinosaurs.

I made light of it and pushed him away. The third time it happened was when he came to my house to do a little repair job for me. That time he also grabbed my breast. I exploded and told him off. Later on, Dave called and said he was going to come back to do some other things that needed attention. I told him he was not welcome in my house and that Im furious he would do such a thing. He apologized and said he hoped I could forgive him. I am so angry! I no longer want to be in his company. I also dont like that I have to keep his behavior a secret from my sister. I havent told anyone, and it is keeping me up nights. Please help. Fuming in Florida DearFuming: Your mistake was in not setting your amorous brother-inlaw straight the first time he made a pass at you. Because you didnt, he thought his advances were welcome. Now that you have made plain to him that youre not interested, you will probably have nothing more to worry about. But you are wise not to have him over unless your sister is with him. I dont blame you for being angry, but do nothing until you cool off. The question then will be whether to tell Sis that her husband behaves inappropriately and how you know. DearAbby: I recently moved back to my home state and in with my grandmother to get away from my abusive husband. I have also filed for divorce. I love my grandmother dearly, but when it comes to the divorce or the therapy I go to weekly, she is not understanding and constantly brings up what he did to me. I believe shes frustrated because Im in therapy and she doesnt see a reason for me to go. She thinks if its not talked about, then it never happened. I have tried to explain to her that I cant just let go of what he did to me and my son. How can I make her understand that Im trying to heal wounds that arent visible from the outside? Trying to Heal on the Inside DearTrying to Heal: Y our grandmother may come from a generation in which therapy was something to be ashamed of. Away to help her understand the importance of what you are doing would be to invite her to a session with your therapist, let her air her concerns, and let the therapist explain to her why it is important that you work this through to become healthy again. This must be very uncomfortable for you, and you have my sympathy. DearAbby: Im a teenage girl living with my mom, who is a single parent, and my younger sister. We have struggled financially, but we mostly live a relatively comfortable life, and Mom owns her own home. However, she constantly says things to me and my sister like, Were so poor, or, Were going to live under a bridge, even in public! We have asked her to stop several times, but she doesnt care that we are upset and embarrassed. How can I get her to stop? Embarrassed in the South DearEmbarrassed: Rather than ask her to stop, dont you think you should approach her privately and ask why she is saying it? She may be joking, but her concerns could also be a holdover from when her financial situation was less secure. Please do it. Her response might be educational. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Brother-in-laws kisses leave sister in a fury Doyou ever feel like you m ust be losing your mind? Someone says to you, I told y ou that last week! or Dont you remember? We can get defensive about comments like this. I know I have. This morning as I was sleeping in it hit me what the problem is. It is sensory overload and our database has failed to file the information in the p roper place. Can you tell that I am learning to speak geek? Lets think about this overload for a second. When I am sitting at home in my chair with my computer on my lap, four dogs, a television on with a ticker tape scrolling across the bottom or music playing, a house phone, a cell phone, my assistant Michele, my iPod, text messaging and instant messaging, emails coming in, the doorbell ringing and my sweet darling somewhere in the house. It is a miracle that I can do anything much less remember something that is tossed into this chaotic mix. We are so smug at believing that the ability to multitask is a virtue. All it really does is divide our attention, take us longer to accomplish anything and make us feel frazzled. Only thing that it does is make us look busy. Just because we look as if we are doing something doesnt mean we are accomplishing anything. This is called busy work. Its no wonder why we cant remember anything. We are not losing our minds. We are multitasking. My sweet darling laughs and tells me that I must have movie amnesia. This morning I have figured out why I dont remember movies that we watch at home. It is because the movie never has my undivided attention. I watch with my computer on my lap. In the evening I dont usually make business calls but my instant messenger is always up and I am checking emails. This is just the physical things I am doing with my hands. My mind is a million other places; processing ideas for essays and what is going to happen tomorrow. So how do we stop this sensory overload? We have to pull the plugs. Lets practice turning off and tuning in. This is not going to be easy. I know myself too well but I also know the satisfaction that comes from being able to accomplish something. This is how I wrote my first book. I had made myself a strict routine for the morning. I know my mornings are my most productive time as long as I am not pulled in several directions at once. My routine started with getting dressed to lace up shoes, making my bed, swishing and swiping the bathroom, emptying the dishwasher, feather dusting, a quick dust mop of the floors and then eating my breakfast with a strong cup of coffee. This is my normal morning routine. My goal was to write 10 pages or three hours, whichever came first. To accomplish this goal I had some rules for myself. 1. Do my regular morning routine. I could not allow my house to fall apart while I was writing the book. 2. Turn on my computer only after I had my breakfast and bottles of water by my side. 3. I could not turn on my email program or a browser, only my Word Program. 4. I could not turn on my instant messenger program. 5. This one is the most important. I could not answer the phone! I started my day at 7:30 a.m. by 8 a.m. I was ready to start writing and by 11 a.m. I was finished with 10 pages or I had worked for three hours. In two weeks I had a manuscript. Do you see what you can accomplish when you turn off the distractions and tune into your brain power. We are very smart people. We dont have to feel frazzled and pulled in many directions. As I have been writing this essay I have had to stop myself several times from turning on the television, radio or my iPod. We can focus. When we practice unplugging and tuning in to the power that we have in our brains the sky is the limit.

Dear Abby FLY Lady Leanne Ely NEWYORK (AP) Three lawsuits brought by men who said former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash sexually abused them when they were underage were tossed out by a judge who said in a decision published Monday that the men waited too long to sue. U.S. District Judge John G. Koeltl said the claims must be barred because they came more than six years after each man reasonably should have become aware of Clashs alleged violations and more than three years after each turned 18. One other lawsuit is pending in Pennsylvania. Clash resigned from Sesame Street in November after college student Cecil Singleton sued him for more than $5 million, accusing Clash of having sex with him when he was 15. At the time, Clash said he was leaving his job because personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work Sesame Streetis doing. Clash was the man behind Elmo, the popular furry red monster, for 28 years. Singletons lawsuit was among those thrown out Monday. Koeltl also rejected lawsuits brought by Kevin Kiadii, who claimed that Clash initiated contact with him on a gay chat line in 2004 when he was 16, and a third person, a Florida resident, who remained anonymous in his lawsuit as he claimed that Clash befriended him in late 1995 or early 1996 when he was 16 or 17. Sex with a person under age 17 is a felony in New York if the perpetrator is 21 or older. Judge tosses 3 NY lawsuits against ex-Elmo actor

C M Y K www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, July 7X, 2013Page B9 Diversions/Puzzles The process before birth begins with the tiny seed of an idea, a desire, a vision, a hope. The young couple envisions themselves as parents who will love, protect and train their child to be a citizen of integrity.Once conceived, this tiny seedlings development is completed in nine months. Then there is the struggle. Labor pains intensify until the child exits the womb and enters the world.The process of life continues with love, courage, joy and planning, celebrating every milestone. So, it was when our founders signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, marking the birth of our nation. It started with an idea, a desire, a vision, a hope. Godly, honorable, privileged men sacrificed greatly. With a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence... they signed this historic document pledging to each other their lives, fortunes and sacred honor. Pain and struggle ensued.Today we continue celebrating the birth of our nation every July 4. But we must not do so with our head in the sand, pretending that all is as it should be. Alook back magnifies how far we have drifted on this sea of liberty until our freedoms are being lost in licentiousness.How do we get our hearts right again? I recently heard a grandma say how her 4-year-old granddaughter happily sang her thoughts in the back seat of the car as they drove along.Then she sang lyrics to a song about giving Jesus your heart. Emily, have you given Jesus your heart? asked grandma. In the rearview mirror she could see her struggling with her thoughts.Then Emily blurted out, I dont know how to get it out! Are we struggling as a nation to get our hearts out from the safety of Gods protection and mistaking that for freedom?Have we bought into an adolescent frame of mind instead of maturing as our founding parents hoped for? In Christ, we are offered internal freedom leading to rebirth and new life in Him.We dont need to get our hearts out.We need to receive him into the centrality of our being.I Corinthians 15:3, NKJV, makes it clear, Christ died for our sins according to the ScripturesHe was buriedand He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures. The provision for rebirth and freedom is his gift to us. For our nations sake, lets get our hearts right with our Creator Redeemer relying once again on the Giver and Sustainer of life and not on our own selfreliance.

Pisces should open up to the curious DearAbby: I was bullied from second grade all through school. In junior high the abuse was both emotional and physical, and it happened on a daily basis. My parentsresponse was that maybe I was the problem and if I wasnt, people would stop picking on me. (Thats a letter for another day.) What would have been my 10-year high school reunion was two weeks ago. Needless to say, I didnt go. Since the reunion, however, I have received more than 30 messages via Facebook from former classmates. It seems I was the main topic of conversation at the reunion, mainly because everyone apparently wanted to apologize to me. Abby, I dont know how to respond to these people. While I dont doubt the sincerity of their apologies, I truly dont want to have any contact with them (even on Facebook). At the same time, I dont want to be rude and just ignore them. So far, I havent replied to any of their messages. I want to know if I must, and if so, what I should say? To be honest, Id like to tell them all to go to hell, but Im trying to be nice. Lost for Words DearLost forWords: You do not have to say anything to any of these people, and you do not have to be nice. Silence sends a strong message, and it is the one Im recommending. Understand that by apologizing they are trying to make themselves feel better. Its also possible that maturity has caused them to realize what they did was wrong. However, you are not obligated to accept their apologies if doing so will make you feel worse. DearAbby: I am a single mother struggling with my 12-year-old daughter. For the last three months she has been withdrawn, uncommunicative, rude, mean and treats me with contempt. We have been in counseling and are going back again, but I cant ask people to stay with her while I go and recharge my spirit because shes so rude to them as well. I need to know, Abby, what do other parents do to make it through this incredibly painful period in the lives of their teenager and themselves? Single Mom in Canada DearSingle Mom: Any abrupt change in behavior should be regarded as a red flag. Your daughter should be evaluated by her pediatrician to be sure there isnt an underlying cause. Could she have been molested, be using drugs, pills, alcohol, etc.? Do her friends act this way? Does she have friends? Changes like this dont usually happen overnight. Was this behavior tolerated when she was smaller? If a child of mine behaved that way, she would be grounded and her cellphone and Internet privileges canceled until she was 30. As to whom you can leave her with while you recharge, does this girl have a father, an aunt, a grandparent who can give you respite? Thats how some single parents get a break. But if those resources are not available, you will have to deal with this (with the help of a more effective therapist than the one you were using) until your problem child becomes an adult.

Expressing preferences clearly about how any declines in ADLs should be handled, what financial resources are available, and who should provide needed care is a good way to retain control. All adults over age 18 should execute legal documents that appoint one or more individuals to make health care and financial decisions for them in the event they become unable to make decisions for themselves. Adults who lose the ability to make decisions before executing these documents must have the court system appoint someone to make decisions for them. An attorney can also prepare an advance care directive, which is a set of written instructions detailing what medical care you want or do not want. HousingThose who would prefer to stay at home for as long as possible should make a plan to do so, and consider making modifications as needed. Home modifications are often intended to allow maximum self-care, and to help avoid a fall. Avoiding a fall can help delay or avoid the need for long-term care. Typical modifications include widening doorways, adding wheelchair ramps, improving lighting, mounting stairway chair lifts, installing medical alert systems and adding handrails or safety grips. An important consideration for anyone planning to stay home is to ensure the bathroom can be used safely. Ideally, your residence should maximize your ability to continue performing ADLs, and help you avoid a fall.PrimaryCareMaintaining a good relationship with a primary care physicianiskey.Regularcheck-upscanlead toearlydiagnosis of any physical, mental or emotional decline. Be honest and open about symptoms, daily habits or changes in appetite. Be sure to have the primary care physician review all medications. Ongoing medication management is an important part of staying healthy and avoiding a fall.FamilyCareUnpaid family members are the most common source of long-term care help. But, they may not be able to provide all the care you need, or be there every hour of the day. If you intend to rely on family members for long-term care services be sure to involve them in your long-term care planning. Make sure they are willing and able to be caregivers for you.PaidCareAs part of your long-term care plan, look into caregiving services in your area, including inhome care providers and elder daycare centers. Find out about elder shuttles, meals on wheels and other low-cost services offered in your community. Several types of housing come with support services for people who cannot fully take care of themselves due to aging and/or disability. Public housing is available for low-to-moderate income elderly and persons with disabilities. Assisted living homes are group living settings that offer housing in addition to assistance with ADLs and other services, such as meals. Generally, they do not provide medical care. Continuing care retirement communities provide a range of housing options, including independent living units, assisted living and nursing homes, all on the same campus. Nursing facilities, or nursing homes, are the most service-intensive housing option, providing skilled nursing services and therapies as needed. Take the time to familiarize yourself with the different types of facilities available in your area. Ask family and friends for any recommendations they may have and take advantage of information available on the Internet. Visit www.longtermcare.gov to find out more inform ation about each type of facility and costs associated with long-term care. Your local Area Agenc y on Aging office also offers a list of resources available to the elderly in your area. Having your long-term care plan squared away and clear, so there are no misunderstandings or second-guessing, can be the greatest gift you ca n give to your loved ones, and yourself.Formoreinformation,visit www.longtermcare.gov.FAMILYFEATURES The best time to make decisions regarding long-term care is well before its needed. An unexpected illness or injury may force you or a loved one into making hasty decisions. Long-term care is a set of services and supports for people who are unable to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). ADLs are self-care activities, such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, dressing, eating, and bowel and bladder management. About 70 percent of people turning 65 can expect to need some kind of long-term care services as they age. Experts encourage everyone over age 50 to take the time, while you have it, to research options and make important choices. Long-term care planning means developing a personal strategy now for how things should be handled later when you or a loved one is in need of care. Important considerations include the following:

C M Y K What started with a simple question of where one person could get al ittle financial help has now turned into a lifeline for many in H ighlands County. Beth Gollihue is the creator b ehind the Facebook Secret Angels group. Gollihue thought that something had to be done to help out community members and families who are in need. I had an acquaintance who messaged me on Facebook and asked me if I knew of anywhere she could go to get help with her utility bill. Her bill was over$ 500 and she couldnt get any assistance, Gollihue said. Gollihue hopped onto Facebook and made a quick post asking if anyone would be willing to help out the needy woman and her family. There were so many people willing to help. We got the bill p aid in two days, Gollihue said. That was late July of 2012. Fast forward nearly one full year and the Secret Angels Facebook group is home to more than1 ,000 members who come together to help out or to be helped. Gollihue added close friends and family soon after she created the group, but it quickly became popular and took off, much to her surprise. The group has become so big, that Gollihue has a dded four administrators to help out with the group efforts. The group is set up as an open forum; those in need are welcome to post any and all needso n the groups wall, which is seen by each of the members of the group. Administrators sift through the requests and make decisions on which requests will be accepted or denied. The administrators get on there and they check it daily. Together they decide who to help and they discuss everything. Its hard to pick a nd choose what to help with because some people need a lot, b ut we try to keep it fair. Theyll sometimes ask for help with ane lectric bill and their cell phone bill and, of course, we pick to help with the electric bill because we feel its a bigger need, Gollihue said. T he unique aspect of the Secret Angels group is right in the name: the secret. The majority of donations are made in private and Gollihue can attest tot he generosity of many people in the community. When a person is approved for help, the administrators contact the donators and provide banking numbers to deposit funds for the person in need. 079099401001 Phone ... 385-6155Fax ... 385-2453Online: www.newssun.com WAUCHULA STATE BANK/Cheryl Hen; 11.25"; 1.5"; Black plus three; process, front strip low down ; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 7 7 7 7 7 7 Angels Among Us Secret Angels Facebook group becomes a place to give & get help N o place like homeHost Lake Placid powers into Dixie Ozone district championship game SP ORTS, B1 NEWS-SUNHighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Wednesday-Thursday, July 3-4, 2013Volume 94/Number 79 | 50 cents w ww.newssun .com Grill up flavorBring big taste to the party with marinades and spices WHATSCOOKING, B10 Less rain High 88 Low 74Details, A10 CelebrationsB7 ClassifiedsA7 ClubsB6 Dear AbbyB9 Editorial & OpinionA3 Friends & NeighborsB7 ObituariesA6 PuzzlesB9 Whats CookingB10 Index BYSAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.com See SECRET, page A4Angels Among Us By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Aday full of fun is in the works for the Fourth of July in the City of Charm.

Waldron said the district n eeds to hire 130 to 140 new teachers this summer, mostly due to a wave of Baby Boomer retirements. This is the first time in five years the district has needed so many new teachers. The good news, Waldron said, is 80-plus teachers have already been hired. The Great American Teach-in, a job fair for educators that was held June 25 in Tampa, proved to be a good source, she added. e sent out 18 letters of intent, she said, and have already officially hired 11 of the applicants. Were getting a lot of newly graduated teachers from all over the c ountry, quite a few from the north, and some from other areas of Florida. She said 30 jobs were still being advertised. Somea pplicants turned down working in Highlands County, Waldron said, because of the salaries; others had accepted other jobs. J uly 10, the district holds its first new hire processing program. Every new employee attends and is introduced to the districts employment policies, salary schedule, health insurance coverage and retirement accounts. The new teacher orientation is scheduled for Aug. 7. The district trains the new teachers (including experienced teachers new to the county) in every facet of district education, everything the new teacher needs for the first week of school, from district policies, to the new common core curriculum, Waldron said.

This year the Highlands Little Theatre will be backo n Thursday with a Patriotic Musical Revue. My job this year is to bring a bit lighter fare to the stage, director SunnyZ engler said, so we have gone back to a variety show T he performances will be every hour on the hour b eginning at 11a.m. and run through 4 p.m. Each half hour performance will be peppered with familiar patriotic tunes as well ass ome that may be a bit new to younger audience members. For instance, we will have a rendition of What did Delaware? she said. Some of the older folksm ay remember it. There also will be sing-al ongs including The Battle Hymn of the Republic, This Land is Your Land as well as a rousing rendition of Yankee Doodle, which will feature a number of verses that might beu nknown to some. e will have lyric sheets to help the audience w ith the words, she said.

Zengler recruited, assem-b led and rehearsed the group for this one-time perf ormance. Anotable digression from that will be a solo handbell rendition of America the Beautiful, which will be done by Zengler herself.

The title, which stands for one church, one family, one purpose, indicates the focus on finding localf oster families for youngsters. In all, there were 65 people in attendance at the Grogan Center session. Some were families inter-e sted in the program, while others were from area churches sent to find out additional details for their congregations. e got six families who are looking at the foster care program and six others interested in adoption, said Jeff Roth, director of the Highlands County Champion for Children Advocacy Center. Thats better than what was done in Lakeland. One of the highlights of the evening was a moving testimonial from Michelle Tellone of the Joy FM radio network about her experience as both a foster and adoptive parent. The segment also featured a video of Tellones teenage daughter talking about her tribulations growing up bouncing from home to home until she was adopted by Tellone. Roth said that of the 52 youngsters from Highlands County who have been removed to licensed foster care, only seven are housed here locally. He explained that going into foster care actually is a last resort. The Florida Department of Children and Families first looks to the homes of immediate relatives to take displaced children. If that is not an option, they then go to a second tierand see if there are families of close friends who will become involved, he said. It is only after that the agents look to foster care. One of the problems is that many times siblings are split up until the problems of the nuclear familya re resolved. They also are removed from familiar surroundings, friends and schools. Those who want to participate in foster care first must be screened, then are required to go through DCF licensing classes, which takes about nine weeks. e currently have 13 licensed homes here in Highlands County, Roth said. Thats a number that local child advocates would like to change. They have started by soliciting area churches and church members. Roth pointed to Christian homes as good candidates, citing stability both through a good moral foundation as well as having a church family who can help with some of the childrens needs. Children in need of foster homes range the entire gamut of ages, from small infants to teens who are ready to age out of the program. There really is a wide array of youngsters and those who want to be foster parents have the discretion to say for what age and/or sex they feel most adequate to care, he said. Roth re-iterated he was available to talk with churches, as well as clubs, groups and organizations to explain the process. He may be reached at the Advocacy Center at 4026845. 12 families show interest in initial 1-1-1 meeting J eff Roth Childrens Advocacy C enter directorWe got six families who are looking at the foster care program and six others interested in adoption.

C M Y K By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentA VON PARK The Avon Park Charter Review Committee is slated to get together Monday, even though committee chairG eorge Hall will not be able to attend. Asimilar followup session to the committees inaugural meeting last month was called off lastw eek due to the passing of a prominent local citizen. Hall had announced that the death of community leader Clyde Hicks hadc aused the temporary postponement, as a number of committee members plannedt o attend Hicksservices. The group spent several hours the previous week digging through a heavilyr evised version of the proposed Avon Park municipal charter, finding a wide array of changes to the document they previously had devel-o ped and sent along to the council. The plan was to have had a session last week developing a final recommendationt o send back to council. Officials say there should be a quorum of at least three members to get together Monday, including LesterR oberts, Joe Wright and Jim Barnard. Barnard was not at the initial June session of ther eview committee, which was marred by several glitches, including inconsistent charterr eview copies distributed among the members. Also questioned was a new segmenti nvolving who in the city's administration would be allowed to conduct investigations. Once finished, the new c harter will be sent before Avon Park voters for their consideration. It was to haveb een put up for referendum during the last election cycle but was pulled at the last minute due toi nconsistencies with the language. The final charter update meeting is set to be held in the cityc ouncil chambers Monday commencing at 3 p.m. Although the charter review committee will bem eeting Monday, the city council will not convene for their regular session. Ther egularly scheduled council meeting has been moved to this coming Thursday to accommodate at least twoc ouncil members who cannot attend. Mayor Sharon Schuler reportedly has been scheduled for a medical procedurea nd Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray reportedly is out of town on a honeymoon. The longtime councilwoman reportedly tied thek not this past Wednesday with semi-pro basketball player Franklin Giles. Gray has served three terms of office and has beent he citys deputy mayor for three years. Giles reportedly played several seasons witha Turkish basketball league. The two reportedly also are officers in the Southside Community Resource Centero n South Delaney Street in Avon Park. Gray is listed as president and Giles is shown as one of the facility's directors. S everal items of note are scheduled for the Thursday evening session, including a public hearing on the city's proposed fortune teller ordi-n ance. That was adopted largely from the current Highlands County statute. Other items tentatively slated are a demonstration ofp olling software for the citys Internet page and possible discussion on recom-m endations of the citys charter review committee.

The Governors Commission on Volunteerism andC ommunity Service, Volunteer Florida, was established in 1994 by the Florida Legislature to administer grants under the National and Community Service Trust Act of 1993. The Commission grants funds to Florida AmeriCorps and National Service programs; coordinates volunteerism in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery; and helps to strengthen and expand volunteer engagement for everyone from youths to seniors, to people with disabilities. After moderating a statewide forum in December on community service, I was approached a nd encouraged to apply to b e on the governors commission, McLeod said. Before I was appointed, there was a lack of representation in rural southc entral Florida. Also, I am the only member from a higher education institution. McLeod fills a vacant seat and is appointed for a three-year term that began July 2. Volunteer Florida's Commission is administratively housed within the Executive Office of the Governor and guided by a bipartisan board of commissioners, who are appointed by the governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate. I've always been extensively involved in community service since moving to the United States, McLeod said. It's a great honor to be selected by the governor to be a member of the Commission on Community Service, especially to keep the heartland of Florida in their sights.

C M Y K Lets not forget it was elected representatives from1 3 independent colonies working for self government while it appeared they werel osing the war. The Congress had begun its second session at theP ennsylvania State House in Philadelphia on May 10, 1 776. It was exactly one year, a week and a day since the bat-t les of Lexington and Concord, April 18-19, 1775. A large British fleet with troops arrived off Long Island, N.Y. Only a few days before the Fourth of July, English patrol boats weres kirmishing up and down the Delaware river and General W illiam Howe landed on Staten Island with 9,000 men. He and his army soon had Washington and theC ontinental Army on the retreat. The members of the S econd Continental Congress were not soldiers. Most were well-heeled merchants, pro-f essionals, clergy or land holders. I magine the risk these comfortable middle-class men took and the couraget hey mustered to speak out. The war was a messy, p ainful one for soldiers. Supplies were often delayed or lost, the winters were colder than normal and the main weapon was the musket an early, muzzle-loading firearm with a long smooth b arrel and a bayonet at the end. According to ncpedia.org/, the musket is a short range weapon, only accurate within 100 yards of a target. T he formal European way of fighting with it was to line up the armies opposite each other and shoot in volleys with a bayonet charge.O utgunned and outmanned, it was the American adaptation of American Indian guerrillat actics and the soldierspersistence, which confounded the British, that won the war. B attlefields and wounds, however minor, were dangero us. Medical knowledge was primitive and battlefield careu norganized. Infection was more likely to kill than the o riginal wound. It took organizing at the national level, with a unified Continental Army to defeat the British. It took brave menw illing to risk all. If only todays politicians w ere nearly as brave. Maybe then, something meaningful could be accomplished by a g overnment too often deadlocked by political nonsense.

Todays smarter buying public, recognizing that fireworks essentiallyf unction via a controlled burn, use the products carefully and with good common sense resulting in more use of consumer fireworks and fewer injuries. I n 1994, the American Fireworks Standards L aboratory (AFSL testing fireworks in China for compliance with U.S.m anufacturing and performance standards as e nforced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC addition to the testing program, the AFSLs StandardsC ommittee reviews the standards with a view to i ncreasing the safety margins and making the products safer. The AFSLalsoc onducts seminars in China on quality control and m akes factory visits to improve the manufacturing process. I n 1994, the first AFSL conducting its testing program, some 117 million p ounds of fireworks were imported into the United S tates. That year, CPSC reported 12, 500 fireworksrelated injuries in the country. By 2011, with a very improved AFSLtestingp rotocol, fireworks imports into the U.S. grew 100 percent to 234.1 million pounds, but the number of fireworks-related injuries dropped by over 23 percent to 9,600. We anticipatef ewer injuries in the next reporting year. O f the 9,600 fireworksrelated injuries, the CPSCs own data suggests 43.4 percent of the injuries are from unspecified firecrack-e rs, homemade and altered devices, illegal explosives, professional displays, and other unspecified devices. If over 43 percent of thei njuries have nothing to do with consumer fireworks, the improvement in injury statistics even better. If you factor in use to the injury statistics, the improvement in fireworksrelated injuries is even more impressive. Based on injuries measured per 100,000 pounds of imported fireworks, there has been an amazing 61.68 percent reduction in injuries from 10.7 per 100,000 pounds in 1994 to 4.1 per 100,000 pounds in 2011. The CPSC, the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms & Explosives, the American Pyrotechnics Association, and the National Council on Fireworks Safety, Inc., together with most of the larger fireworks companies, all sponsor public relations initiatives and press conferences aimed at promoting fireworks safety and warning against the use of illegal explosives. Phantom Fireworks even conducts f ree classes on how to use consumer fireworks safely. If we continue to work diligently on the safety message and are able to get people to continue to strict-l y follow the safety rules, we can further improve the f ireworks-related safety record and reduce injuries even further. T he cardinal rule is to use common sense. The f ireworks burn and produce fire while functioning, therefore you must respect the products for that fact and take all necessary pre-c autions to avoid incidents. Some of the primary firew orks safety rules include: 1. Never allow children to handle fireworks. Onlys ober adults should handle and ignite the fireworks. A d esignated shooter, like a designated driver, should be the one in charge of thef ireworks. 2. Use in a clear, open space, free from debris and c ombustibles. Shoot on a hard, flat surface. Keep y our audience a safe distance from your launch site and fallout zones. Aminimum safe distance should be 30 feet for ground-basedi tems and 150 feet for aerials. 3. Have a ready source of water close by. Aconnected hose is best, but a bucket of water or fire extinguisher will suffice.S omeone should act as the fireman someone to visua lly track the burning projectiles down to make sure nothing comes down hot. 4. Do not relight duds. Follow all laws. Use al ong-neck butane lighter, punk or Phantom Pyro torch to light the fireworks. Never put any part of your body over a firework or ini ts travel path. For a complete list of all of the recommended fireworks safety tips, visit the Fireworks University section of www.fireworks.com. Lets continue the great American tradition envisioned by John Adams of celebrating with fireworks when he wrote in 1776 that the Independence Day holiday Ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, bonfires and illuminations (fireworks one end of this continent to the other, from this day forward forevermore.

The game is overEditor: One of the privileges I enjoy most is the right to free speech. In this letter Im going to exercise that right by writing what I believe to be the truth as I see and understand it. Paula Deens repetitive tearful apologies have done more damage than good. The truth as I see it, many people born and raised in the south have not accepted the fact that the Civil War was fought to abolish slavery. The yankees won and the game is over. The die-hards and the ignorant are still with us because they either cant read the headlines or they have a fixation on doing the war all over again. Please dont feel sorry for Paula Deen. She has enough money to live in comfortably the remainder of her life. She needs to pull down her pots and pans, get comfortable in her recliner and take a nap. Its over. The yankees won. Now whats all the bro-ha-ha about the police being dishonest? Havent we seen them on television abusing people physically, exceeding by far their authority? It doesnt just happen in Florida. Havent six million people watching TVseen two police officers, one on each side holding a mans hands and banging his head against the corner of a building in New York? Not once but again and again. How can we respect police that pull over young women and give them a choice of paying a ticket of $150 or having sex with them? That isnt new; thats been going on for years. They lie and protect each other from getting caught. The George Zimmerman case is a good example. The police didnt arrest him after the killing. They let it go. Una V. McLaughlin Sebring BouquetsGlad Rooney took a standEditor: I was glad to see that the U.S. House Appropriations Committee voted to pass an amendment that would save taxpayer money and halt efforts to bring horse slaughter plants to the U.S. soil. As a long-time resident of Sebring, I am, even happier that U.S. Representative Tom Rooney supported the amendment. I am a part of the 80 percent of Americans that is opposed to horse slaughter for human consumption. Horse slaughter in very cruel and unnecessary. Horses are exposed to hundreds of drugs that make their meat unsafe for human consumption. The shocking discovery of horse meat in beef products in the United Kingdom and other European countries shows that if it happens here we would run a risk of public health and the reputation of our agricultural industry just so a few people in the predatory horse slaughter industry can make money. I think Representative Rooney is the best for taking a stand for those of us in his district and all of America. Thanks Representative Rooney for caring. Gail Leavitt SebringTire Kingdom went the extra mileEditor: Thank you Shelby, the office manager, and Dave, the service manager, and to Charles, excellent technician. I had checked a number of places for used tires and it ended up, thanks to the folks at Tire Kingdom, I was able to get new tires for less than used. I couldnt believe it, and they aligned it and checked problems with the car. Charles did an excellent job. They go the extra mile for their customers. I sure appreciate all your kindness. The tires make a big different and car runs better. Thanks to each of you and Tire Kingdom. J.

You p robably spent it with friends and family, maybe at a barbeque or picnic, maybe just lazing around at home. If the weatherp ermitted, you might even have caught some firew orks last week (Im typing this on Wednesday so I have no clue what kind ofw eather we had for the 4th Im a writer not a timet raveler). You might have lucked out and scored a four dayw eekend from your place of employment. Which meant an extra day to goof o ff and relax. Or maybe even shop one of the many h oliday sales that crop up during times like this. And hopefully hopefully! you took at least a nanosecond to remembert hat there is a reason for all this hoopla. That the 4th of July is more than fireworks and grilling and shopping. More than a day off. I worry about a lot of m y fellow countrymen. It seems were more caught u p in the doings of our favorite celebrities than our countrys leaders. Behavior that wed consider irresponsible in onesp ersonal life reckless spending, lying on a regular basis is considered business as usual in Washington, DC. I t reminds me of the story of the pollster who asked a man what he thought about the prevalent ignorance and apathy in our country. The man responded, I dont know and I dont care! Is this the kind of attitude that our Founding Fathers risked all for? Did men fight and bleed and die just so that we could have a four-day weekend? Those that started this nation knew they created something worth fighting for. Those who fought and died on too many battlefields knew we had something worth preserving. Do we appreciate what we have? Yes, we are far from perfect. America has its problems and makes mistakes just like any other nation. But even with our flaws we have many things to be grateful for. W e enjoy freedom of speech, of assembly, of r eligion. Most of us have the freedom to choose our path in life, instead of theg overnment shunting us to a particular future. In the g rand scheme of things, we are blessed as a nation. How do we honor this? I s more than taking a day off from work. More than watching again or c heering fireworks over Lake Jackson. W e honor this by being good citizens. This means that we take the time and trouble to know whats going on with our country,t he good and the bad. And when we see our leaders doing stupid things, we call them on it and urge them to do better or we get new leaders. It means participating in t he process. Getting informed on the issues at s take and then voting on them. Yes, voting. Aprivilege that is not available all over the world. One that I fear we all too oftent ake for granted. These days information is all over the place and easier than ever to access. Yes, you have to do somew ork separating the wheat from the chaff, but there are websites that can even help with that. About 237 years ago, some brave men started this country we know as the United States of America. Men and women of today can honor them and all who came after them by making sure they are helping to make this country the best it can be. And then you can watch the fireworks.

Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the staff of the NewsSun. Honoring the Fourth Among other things, the commissioners were accused of ignoring their constituents and being against prayer. The News-Sun believes nothing c ould be further from the truth. For example, in his report County A ttorney Ross Macbeth stated clearly a written policy in no way impacts the current order of things; nothing willc hange. He said, on the other hand, the number of federal lawsuits being filed a gainst prayer at public meetings is growing. Because Highlands County opens meetings with invocations, it is at risk, especially because it has no written policy. W riting down and adhering to a fair set of rules, Macbeth said, discourages l awsuits and strengthens the countys position should it be sued. For example, instead of having to do extensive, expensive research to prove a consistent policy over time, the county can point to the policy and say, There iti s. The objective of the policy, in other w ords, is to save the tradition of having a guiding prayer before meetings for the benefit of the commissioners, not tog et rid of it or restrict it in any way. The News-Sun heard Commissioner G reg Harris say he was prepared to fight for prayer. We heard Jack Richie talk about his devotion to Jesus Christ and say clearly, (Awritten policy) protects us from outside forces. W e dont know where the anger came from Tuesday. Wedont unders tand the breakdown of the conversation when commission members were talking about saving invocations and members of the audience heard just the opposite. That observation, however, is not the m ain point of this essay. The question is: How did something so sensible become such an emotionally charged issue? The good sense of formalizing tradition into written policy seems straight-f orward to us. This is a resolution in our own best interest particularly t hose of us who believe in the power of prayer and want it to remain a part of our official culture. A written policy protects us. It makes our intentions clear and, by providing a ccess to all clergy who wish to take part, it shows the countys good faith. In our litigious culture, when too many people have too much time on their hands and chips on their shoul-d ers, its not a matter of if, but when the county will be sued unless we t ake action and protect what we have. Extra points for doing it politely. BCC working to save prayer, not restrict it County commissioners were targets of anger and scorn throughout Tuesdays county commission meeting especially during a discussion about protecting invocations from lawsuits.

Explaining the imbalance of justiceEditor: Your readers will recall I w rote a letter to the editor expressing my interest in the story about the boys school in Marianna, Fla. Reason because, my son, affection-a tely known as Jiggs, spent a year in the school because of incorrigible behavior. Jiggs has gone to be with the Lord so he wontm ind my sharing this one escapade. This was long a fter he returned from the boys school. By this time heh ad no respect for authority figures. Late in the evening, Jiggs was returning on foot from a hunting trip. As he walkeda long this dirt road, he saw the tail light of a car that appeared to be hidden in the bushes. On closer inspection, Jiggs discovered the car wasa police car, unlocked and the keys were in the ignition. There were no lights in the house directly across the road. Jiggs backed the car out and drove it several miles down the road where he parked it in plain view beside the road. He wrote a note that said, If you dont tell, I wont tell. and signed his name. He left the car locked. The story came out ... No one was ever accused of the incident. Now about the Edward Snowden fugitive who leaked the security secrets, now wanted for espionage. Who has committed the greater crime? Snowden who has harmed our country by hacking into government security secrets, or George W. Bush, who invaded Iran and slaughtered thousands of innocent people that were no threat to us? This latest ruling of the Supreme Court on same sex marriage. Why are we so surprised? This is not about morals. This is all about money. The Supreme Court is making it easy for the states to loosen up the laws, giving them the benefit of extra revenue. It wasnt so long ago the Supreme Court did the Republicans a favor by ruling big corporations could give as much money to their favorite candidates as they wanted to. The Supreme Court is supposed to remain neutral, however they appear to bend the rules as they perceive the need. People in the United States are up in arms because God has been over ruled in the law to allows ame sex marriage in all states. Yet there are those who are not concerned with our Creators feelings that millions of unborn babies have been murdered in their mothers womb while other babies are killed after they survive the abortion procedure. Doctors who perform abortions are permitted to do the killings sheltered by legal law. Life beings at the time of conception according to the Psalm 139 King James Version. Those of us who love the Lord and serve Him to the best of our ability are rejoicing as we see the End Time approaching. What kind of story will the remainder come up with to justify their deeds and explain the imbalance of justice of our laws? Una V. McLaughlin SebringVeterans first, immigrants secondEditor: The veterans of this nation have been neglected for too long. Put the Immigration Bill on hold; represent the American veterans first. The millions of claims by veterans is Americas first priority. To pay for immigration for millions of illegals from all over the world who have violated our immigration laws and our sovereignty is disrespect for those who made freedom in America possible. The Veterans Administration will not give veterans in the millions whose claims in the millions have not been accepted will have to pay for their own health care. The veteran whose claim has not been accepted by the VAshould not use the VAas their health care provider. The reason as it stands now: The VAcannot accept Medicare or a second payer such as AARPor Humana to pay the bill, making the veteran pay the bill out of pocket bankrupting millions of veterans. There is a bill in the House that would rectify this huge problem. It is called AMedicare Subvention: HR814 would/authorize Medicare payments to VA medical facilities for services to Medicare eligible veterans. As it, the law, stands now, the millions of veterans who use the VAas their health care provider can be bankrupted by one serious illness. If the veteran refused to pay them, the VAnotifies the U.S. Department of the Treasurys financial management service that you owe the VAagency a delinquent debt. Federal law (31 USC 3716) requires the Treasury to reduce the amount of your social security benefit payments to pay the debt to the VA, a process known as offset. Many Americans say this cannot happen in America. It can and has to me. I have Medicare and a second payer, Humana, which the VArefuses to accept payment from and they are now using Law 31 USC 3716 to take part of my social security. The Bill HR 814 is long overdue. As the law stands now, the VAis destroying millions of veterans and their families, also there is an incentive for the VAto deny millions of veterans claims. Defrauding the veteran is a criminal act and should be addressed by the military of this nation. Billie E. Jewett Sebring

There are some really generous people here that just want to help, Gollihue said. S ince its inception, Gollihue has kept a track of all of the families and individuals who have received help. Approximately 100p eople have received assistance from the group over the last 11 months. People ask help for lots of different things. Some people just get on therel ooking for baby items and diapers, beds and furniture a nd things for their home, but most of the requests are for bills. Electric, water,p hones, these are the biggest things people need. W e have people who are simply asking for food. There really are a lot of people in need right now Gollihue said. Administrators keep a close eye on other localg roups and Facebook pages to ensure that individuals asking for help arent double dipping and looking to take advantage of the gen-e rosity of people. People that are looking for help dont just hop on the page and get approved. If it is bills they are lookingf or help with, they have to have exhausted all other community options beforew e can help them ...

C M Y K By MIKE SCHNEIDER and K YLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressS ANFORD Aprosecutor in George Zimmermans murder trial on Tuesday tried to pick apart the statements of a Sanford Police detectivew ho had been called as a prosecution witness a day before but gave testimony that seemed to benefit the defense. P rosecutor Bernie de la Rionda began by asking the judge to strike from ther ecord a statement Detective Chris Serino made Monday in which he said he foundc redible Zimmermans account of how he got into a f ight with Trayvon Martin. De la Rionda argued the statement was improperb ecause one witness isnt allowed to give an opinion o n the credibility of another witness. Defense attorney Mark OMara argued it was proper because Serino was vetting Zimmermans veraci-t y in his probe. Judge Debra Nelson told j urors to disregard the statement. This is an improper comm ent, the judge said. De la Rionda then quest ioned Serino about his opinion given Monday that he didnt believe Zimmerman d isplayed any ill will or spite to Martin. Prosecutors must prove there was ill will, spite or a depraved mind by the defendant to get a second-d egree murder conviction. De la Rionda played back a police call Zimmerman had made to report Martin in the neighborhood: Zimmermanu ses an expletive and punks and then says, These a-------. They always get away. The prosecutora sked the investigator if those words showed some spite, and Serino conceded it could be construed that way. Next, de la Rionda chall enged Serinos contention that he found Zimmermans story without major inconsistencies. The prosecutor played back Zimmermansp olice interview in which investigators question Zimmerman about small differences in the neighborhood volunteers story. The prosecutor also pointed out Zimmerman claimed that after he shot Martin, he spread out the teens arms. But a photo taken immediately after the shooting shows Martins arms under his body. Is that inconsistent with the defendants statement he spread the arms out? de la Rionda asked. That position, yes it is, Serino said. But under cross examination, Serino said Zimmermans description of Martins body position was consistent with the medical examiners report. Later, in response to Serinos cross-examination testimony that hed seen a convenience store video that showed Martin in a hooded sweatshirt, de la Rionda asked, Are you saying in Seminole County, its illegal for someone to wear a hoodie at night? No sir. Im not, Serino said. It was Serinos second day on the witness stand. He and another investigator, Doris Singleton, testified Monday about their investigation as jurors heard a series of police interviews in which the detectives grew more pointed in their questioning. In an early interview, just hours after the Feb. 26, 2012, shooting, Singleton recounted that Zimmerman noticed a cross she was wearing and said: In Catholic religion, its always w rong to kill someone. Singleton said she r esponded, If what youre telling me is true, I dont think that what God meantw as that you couldnt save your own life. B ut in an interview days later, Singleton and Serino suggest that Zimmerman was r unning after Martin before the confrontation. They also ask Zimmerman why he didt explain to Martin why he was following him. The offi-c ers insinuate that Martin may have been creeped out by being followed. Do you think he was scared? Singleton askedZ immerman in one video interview. U nder cross-examination, t hough, Serino said Zimmerman seemed straightf orward in his answers and didnt show any anger when talking about Martin. Serino said the increasingly pointed questioning is a tactic knowna s a challenge interview where detectives try to break someones story to make sure theyre telling the truth. Zimmerman has said he f atally shot the unarmed black teen in self-defense in February, 2012, because he says Martin was banging his head into a concrete side-w alk behind townhomes in a gated community. Zimmerman, 29, could getl ife in prison if convicted of second-degree murder. The state argued during its o pening statement that Zimmerman profiled and foll owed Martin in his truck and called a police dispatch number before he and thet eenager got into a fight. Zimmerman has denied the c onfrontation had anything to do with race, as Martins family and their supporters have claimed. A44-day delay in Zimmermans arrestl ed to protests around the nation; he was ultimately c harged by a Florida special prosecutor. www.newssun.comN ews-SunW ednesday, July 3, 2013Page A5 CENTRAL SECURITY; 3.639"; 3"; Black plus three; p rocess, #1 with changes; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 1 1 2 2 0 0 PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 3.639"; 16"; Black plus three; process, 100910 publix liquour; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 8 8 9 9 9 9 LAKELAND COMFORT SHOES; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, 7/3,5; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 9 9 7 7 9 9 M artial Arts America 2x3 00030990 NEWS-SUN Judge strikes detective statements on Zimmerman MCT Sanford police officer Chris Serino listens to a question during cross-examination from defense attorney Mark O 'Mara during the George Zimmerman trial in Seminole circ uit court in Sanford on Tuesday.

Others in the Avon Park area, like l akes Glenada and Lelia, have a muck bottom and appear to not have the same kind of transmissivity issues. Ford said it appeared that lakes in the Sebring and Lake Placid areas also do not seemt o share those problems. But the problems have not always b een there. Ford pointed to docks around Lake Lotela that were con-s tructed in the 1940s and 1950s. Those are made out of concrete. You can see where they have been pitted so the levels were up higher then, he said. Those docks all arew ell out of the water now. One theory is that some of the probl em may be from activities outside the area, and even outside the county. There are indications that deep well pumping for drinking, citrus irrigation and industry may have lowered theF loridian Aquifer significantly enough to affect the local lake levels. That deeper aquifer has been drawn down and it takes a while for it to recover, he said. T hats where state minimal flow and level rules kick in, with levels recorded b elow a certain mark mean permitted surface water or groundwater with-d rawals would be stopped, due to what are perceived to be harm to the lakes. There also are questions as to whether more water is being held artificially in the waters upstream from LakeL otela. For instance there is a structure on Lake Glenada. That has been set at a c ertain level since the 1970s, he said. Some people have asked if that might be lowered to allow for a greater water flow F ord said any such action would involve yet more studies and more permitting. Highlands County commissioners a pproved an agreement with the S outhwest Florida Water Management D istrict at their Tuesday night meeting i n an effort to help get work started on t he project. Two meetings will be held as part of t hat accord. The one currently planned session is the first. Asecond will be h eld sometime in the fall to discuss water quality. C ontinued from A1 Lake levels around AP to be studied M ILTON (AP Deputies and animal control workers removed some 200 cats from a home on Monday. A llan and Ella Kirkman of Milton face several charges, including nuisance injurious to health and selling or letting diseased animals roam. The Kirkmans have operated a non-profit, no kill animal shelter called Kirkman Kattery Rescue out of their home for years. Their company website says theyve been trying to raise funds to build a facility for the cats. The cats were taken to a local animal shelter. For the time being we have the space to house and care for them, said animal control interim director Dale Hamilton. Couple arrested after 200 cats seized in Milton maintain their own obligat ions, as in paying their m ortgage. Does the property owner have a job? GeneR eece asked. C ounty Administrator June F isher answered questions from commissioners regarding the program. County dollars go to Tallahassee, shes aid, where they join a larger pool. That money is redist ributed by the state legislature and returned to the county. The dollars are ear-m arked for housing, meaning the funds cannot be used for anything else. Should the county refuse t he funds, the state simply gives them to another count y. The commission agreed unanimously to the subordi-n ation of lien in the specific case before it, but also gave direction to staff to ensure a new, tighter supervision policy is developed. I t was also agreed the c ounty staff prepare a prese ntation explaining the prog ram and what it does. C ontinued from A1 County role in housing loans questioned PRESCOTT, Ariz. (APThey were fathers and expectant fathers. Highs chool football players and former Marines. Smoke-eaterssons and firstgeneration firefighters. What bound the members of the Granite Mountain Hotshots together wasa love of hard work and arduous adventure, and a willingness to risk their lives to protect others. And now, 19 families share a bond of grief. All but one of the Prescott-based c rews 20 members died Sunday when a wind-whipped wildfire overran them on a mountainside northwest of Phoenix. It was the nations biggest loss of firefighters in a wildfire in 80 years and thed eadliest single day for fire crews since the terror attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. In the firefighting world, Hotshot is t he name given to those willing to go to the hottest part of a blaze. They are the best of the best, crews filled with adven-t ure-seekers whose hard training ready them for the worst. e are routinely exposed to extreme e nvironmental conditions, long work hours, long travel hours and the most demanding of fireline tasks, the groups website says. Comforts such as beds, showers and hot meals are not alwaysc ommon. Above all, the crews members prided themselves on their problem-solving, teamwork and ability to make decisions in a stressful environment. Its a younger mans game, said Prescott Fire Chief Dan Fraijo, and the statistics bear him out. Of those who died, 14 were in their 20s; their average age was just 26. A t least three members of the crew were following in their fathersfirefighting footsteps. K evin Woyjeck, 21, used to accompany his dad, Capt. Joe Woyjeck, to the Los Angeles County Fire Department,s ometimes going on ride-alongs. The firehouse was like a second home to him, said Keith Mora, an inspector witht hat agency. He wanted to become a firefighter like his dad and hopefully work hand-inhand, Mora said Monday outside a fire station in Seal Beach, Calif., where theW oyjeck family lives. He was a great kid. Unbelievable sense of humor, work ethic that was not parallel to many kids Ive seen at that age. He wanted to work very hard. C hris MacKenzie, 30, grew up in Californias San Jacinto Valley, where father Michael was a former captain with the Moreno Valley Fire Department. An avid snowboarder,M acKenzie joined the U.S. Forest Service in 2004, then transferred two years ago to the Prescott FireD epartment. Dustin DeFord, 24, was a Baptist preachers son, but it was firefightingt hat captured his imagination. Hotshots lived the meaning of the word

Born Nov. 13, 1916, Mrs. Thompson had b een a lifelong resident of New Jersey before movingt o Florida and later Georgia. She was the daughter of Frank and Dina Wanner, who preceded her in death. She wast he wife of over 60 years to Herbert Clifford Thompson, who preceded her in death. Surviving are two d aughters: Beverly Vanderpoel of Mableton, Marilyn Savarese of Wylie, Texas; five grandchildren: Deborah Jean Savarese-Kizewski, Joseph Howard Savarese, Patrick Donald Savarese, David Robert Vanderpoel, Dina Vanderpoel Scott; and nine great-grandchildren: Julia Marie Savarese, Macy Noel Savarese, Johnathan Lawrence Savarese, Megan Nicole Savarese, Natalie Anne Savarese, Abigail Ruth Vanderpoel, Kenneth Owen Vanderpoel, Kendall Reese Scott and Kayden Seares Scott. Associated PressP RESCOTT, Ariz. An erratic wildfire driven by ferocious and shifting winds curled around the location of a team of ArizonaH otshot firefighters, cutting off their access to a safety zone and creating a death trap that quickly consumed them, two fire officials havec onfirmed based on a map of how the tragedy unfolded by The Associated Press. T he map shows that the 19 highly trained Hotshots were just over a quarter of am ile northwest of the safety zone using chain saws, axes a nd other gear to build a line between the wildfire and the small town ofY arnell on Sunday. But the fire, which was northeast of t he team, suddenly changed directions after the winds shifted nearly 180 degrees and cut off their access to the safety zone, a larger anch property. The APconfirmed the l ocation of the fire crew, their safety zone and the fires advance based oni nterviews with people who knew what happened. After b uilding the map, its accuracy was confirmed by Dan Ware, a spokesman for the crews battling the blaze, and P rescott Fire spokesman Wade Ward. Officials said the 20th member of the Prescottbased Granite MountainH otshots, who served as a lookout for the Hotshot crew and whose exact location during the fire is unclear, was on a hilltopa nd warned the team that erratic winds had shifted the fires direction. T he Hotshot crew was working to build a line to keep the fire from gettingi nto Yarnell, working on the southeast end of the fire w ith the wind blowing generally to the northeast. But a thunderstorm that developedn orth of the fire caused the winds to shift so they were c oming from the north, blowing the fire right toward the Hotshots. The crew had designated a ranch house and its surr ounding cleared area as their safety zone, a spot they s hould be able to reach if things went bad. But the fire moved too fast for them tor each the ranch house, killing the 19 firefighters; t he lookout, 21-year-old Brendan McDonough, was able to make it to safety. S anders has held fundraisers over the past couple of months with local businesses, including Ruby Tuesday and Dairy Queen, to helpf und the project. Abank account was also opened up for individuals wishing to donate to the fundraiser. T he fundraiser collected approximately $1,600 for t he family, which was given to them on a debit carda long with the Disney tickets, hotel vouchers and toys for Kenna. Kenna, who has an unspecified form of mito-c hondrial disease, has been ailing since birth. With her constant schedule of doctors, specialists, test, emergency room visits and surgeries,K enna has yet to have a normal day as a child. Kenna will soon be surrounded by princesses and magic, rather than waiting rooms and doctors. Stephens is especially grateful that the trip includes her entire family siblings Jarek and Kayne and Kennas father Josh. e cant wait, said Stephens. Her health worries me but shes been in better spirits since her daddy has been home with us than she has been in a long time. The excitement takes over and she fights her bodys limits. She doesnt want to be hooked up to her feeding gear, doesnt want to take breaks to cool down or rest. Mitochondrial kids easily wear down and overheat quickly The project was much more than just an ordinary trip to Disney for Stephens and her family, it is a welldeserved few days off froma constant reminder of the health battles they are facing. Stephens is grateful for all the support of the community for her and her family. It is great but overwhelming, too. So many who dont know Kenna personally felt compelled to get her to Disney. And all the other non-related personal gifts for her specifically. (Im speechless, Stephens said. Stephens also thanked Sanders for her altruism and hard work with the fundraisers so that everything could become possible. I did not do this on my own. God provided some amazing people to help me, Sanders said. Photo by Mountain Top Kenna Sherwood, 4, dressed in her princess gear will soon be surrounded by the princesses she loves. Sherwood and her family recently received Disney passes, hotel vouchers and more after a local fundraiser raised money for the family to visit the park for the first time.

Continued from A1 Kenna, family ready for Disney World fantasy trip Wildfire cut off Hotshots access to safety zone CAIRO (AP Security forces boostedp ositions near a protest camp by supporters of ousted leader Mohammed Morsi as authorities Saturday plotted their nextm oves after violence claimed at least 36 lives across the country and deepened the battle lines in the divided nation. I n a further sign of the concern the unrest could spin out of control, Egyptsi nterim president held talks with the army chief and interior minister whoses nub of Morsis authority earlier this week tipped the s cales against Egypts first elected leader. The Interior Ministry a dded that at least eight policemen have been killed s ince the eve of the antiMorsi protests on June 30, marking his anniversary in office. No other details on the deaths were immedi-a tely given. Officials have briefly d etained top figures from Morsis Muslim Brotherhood and have keptt he toppled president from the public eye, under d etention in an undisclosed location. But Morsis supporters h ave vowed to take to the streets until the toppled Islamist leader is reinstated. His opponents, meanwhile, have called form ore mass rallies to defend what they call the gains of June 30, a reference to the start of massive protests to call for theo uster of the president. There were no reports of m ajor clashes in Egypt after dawn Saturday, fol-l owing a night of street battles that added to an overall death toll of at least 75 in the past week. Later, in the northern S inai peninsula, gunmen shot dead a Christian priest while he shopped for food in an outdoor market on Saturday. I t was not immediately clear if the shooting was linked to the political crisis, but there has been a backlash against Christians since just before and after Morsis ouster. Attacks have occurred on members of the minority by Islamists in at least three provinces south of Egypt. Christians account for about 10 percent of Egypts 90 people. Morsis Brotherhood and hard-line allies claim the Christians played a big part in inciting against the ousted leader. In Egypts capital Cairo, only a fraction of the citys normally heavy traffic was on the streets Saturday amid worries that violence could flare again. Security forces stepped up their presence near the largest concentration of Morsi supporters on the streets: A sit-in outside a mosque in Cairos eastern Nasr City district, a traditionally Muslim Brotherhood stronghold.

C M Y K SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP gathered to watch July Fourth fireworks at a Southern California park, it took time to realize the wild chain of explosions werent just part of the show. But those up close Thursday night knew immediately that something was wrong. They included Paulina Mulkern, who had to shove her 4-year-old cousin under a lawn chair as shrapnel came flying then shielded a 7-year-old cousin with her body as scorching debris flew overhead. ou feel the big old heat come right over your back, Mulkern said Friday, still shaking a day after the chain reaction of accidental explosions at an annual fireworks show that had been put on since 1970 in Simi Valley northwest of Los Angeles. Thirty-nine people ranging in ages from 17 months to 78 years old were injured. Some had burns and shrapnel wounds, and some were trampled, authorities and hospital officials said. The injured included 12 children. Only three remained hospitalized Friday night. One was being treated by specialists at a burn center in West Hills, and two more were in fair condition at a community medical center in Simi Valley, hospital officials said. Mulkern said she went into shock after being hit by a flying piece of debris that left her with bruises and red marks on her back, trembling badly as she was carried to a road where rescuers stripped off most of her clothes and wrapped her in a blanket. I was really terrified, she said. Every time someone launched a firework it got me into panic mode. Cellphone videos captured a frantic scene among the crowd of 10,000. Fireworks exploded in big balls of sparks close to the ground, and smoke enveloped the park grounds. People screamed and ran. Associated PressS ANFORD Jurors in the George Zimmerman trial headed into their weekend with a lot of courtroom drama and conflicting testi-m ony to digest. Fridays action-packed sess ion saw the prosecution rest its case, and the judge reject a defense request to acquit Z immerman of seconddegree murder in the fatal s hooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin last year. The mothers of both M artin and Zimmerman listened to the same 911 recording of someone screaming f or help, and each said she was convinced the voice was t hat of her own son. The question of whose voice is on the recording could be crucial to the jury in deciding who was the aggres-s or in the confrontation between the neighborhood watch volunteer and the teenager. I heard my son screaming, Martins mother, Sybrina Fulton, said firmlya fter she was played a recording in which distant, h igh-pitched wails could be heard in the background as a Zimmerman neighbor askeda dispatcher to send police. Moments later on the call,t here was a gunshot and the crying stopped. Gladys Zimmerman, though, testified she recognized the voice all too well: My son. Asked how she could be certain, she said: Because its my son. Martins half brother, 22year-old Jahvaris Fulton, testified that the cries came from the teen. And Zimmermans uncle, Jose Meza, said he knew it was Zimmermans voice from the moment I heard it. ... I thought, that is George. After Fridays session was over, defense attorney Mark OMara told reporters there will be a lot of other witnesses who will testify that the voice on the call is George Zimmermans. But well just present the case, he said. Were just g etting started. Gladys Zimmerman was the defenses first witness. OMara said he expects to call several of the states3 8 witnesses back as well when trial resumes Monday, and he left open the possibility that he would try to introduce toxicology evidence showing Martin had marijuana in his system at the timeh e died. Judge Debra Nelson has denied the admission of t hat evidence for the time being. OMara may also call witnesses who he says have stated that Zimmerman was not a racist. OMara said hec ould rest his case as soon as next week. Immediately after the state rested Friday, he asked Nelson to acquit Zimmerman,a rguing that the prosecution had failed to prove its case. O Mara said an enormous amount of evidence showed that Zimmerman acted in self-defense, and he argued that Zimmerman hadr easonable grounds to believe he was in danger, and acted without the ill will, hatred and spite necessary to prove second-degree murder. But prosecutor Richard Mantei countered: There aret wo people involved here. One of them is dead, and one o f them is a liar Mantei told the judge that Zimmerman had changed his story, that his account of how he shot Martin was a physi-c al impossibility, and that he exaggerated his wounds. After listening to an hour and a half of arguments from both sides, Nelson refused tot hrow out the charge. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, July 7, 2013Page A9 DR.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID The age old nursery rhyme Rain, Rain Go Away was certainly the mindset in Lake Placido ver the weekend and, literall y, spilling into the early w eek as the Ozone District tournament is trying to reach its conclusion. After Saturdays opening rounds, which saw Avon Park topping Okeechobee and Sebring getting past Lake Placid, with Sebring then getting a second win, besting Avon Park, things looked tom ove into Sunday to set the s tage for the championship. But the relentless rains wreaked havoc and washed away the day, moving the next round to Monday night, when Lake Placid charged into the title round with an 11-0 win over Avon Park. And even that game wasnt without delay. Originally slated for a 5 p.m. start Monday, with the title round to serve as the night cap, continued showers caused another revamping of the schedule. When the rains finally let up and a hurried clean up of the field made conditions playable, the junior Dragons and Devils got underway a little past 7:30 p.m. and Lake Placid wasted little time jumping out in front. Katwan Ward drew a leadoff walk and moved to third on an Erskin Toliver single to right. Toliver stole second and moved to third when a pitch got away and scored Ward, with Cody Carpenters ground out bringing Toliver in for a 2-0 lead. Quwesmael Sholtz took the mound for the Dragons and worked around Gunner L eonard reaching on an error t o start the inning. Lake Placid then blew it open with a nine-run second to all but put this one away early. Sholtz reached on an error to start it off, moving to second on a Wyatt Moore grounder to second. A von Parks Cooper Tyler tried making a swipe tag of Sholtz as he ran by, couldnt quite reach him, but alertly threw to first for the out. Kamari Brown, however, soon sent a pitch into the orange groves beyond the center-field fence doubling the lead to 4-0. B ut the Dragons were just g etting started. Jackson Griffin drew a walk and one out later, Lane Graziano, Ward and Toliver each worked the count for walks, bringing another run in. Carpenter then laced a shot into right, scoring two, and when the throw home got away, Toliver scored and allowed Carpenter to motor into second. Cody Jolley then also drew a walk and Royston Daleys single through the right side scored two more. Awalk to Jace Johnston and an errant pick-off throw brought Daley in and the lead stood at 11-0. Jolley then came on to pitch the second and was greeted by a lead-off single up the middle by Mason Huertas. Athrow behind the runner from the Lake Placid catcher got away and rolled into right field, sending Huertas scampering toward second. But a strong throw from right nabbed the runner and cleared the bases with one out.

Special to the News-SunWatkins Glen, NY History was in the making all weekend at Watkins Glen International. It started with the 100th GT3 Cup Race on Saturday and ended with IMSAGT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohamas Ashley Freiberg becoming the first woman to claim an overall GT3 Cup Challenge victory in North America. Freiberg is the second class winner in US GT3 Cup Challenge history, joining Melanie Snow who won her first Gold Cup race in 2009 at Sebring International Raceway and ultimately went on to win the Gold Cup championship that year. Congratulations to Ashley on her inaugural win in the Porsche IMSAGT3 Cup Challenge, said Jens Walther, President & CEO, Porsche Motorsports North America. The Series is a great platform for young driver talent and, clearly, Ashley has proven herself among the elite drivers in a very strong field. To come on the weekend of the Series100th race, seems very appropriate. IMSAGT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama driver Freiberg led the field of 26 flag-toflag in the 101st race to become the first female Platinum Cup female winner as well. Etching her name in the record books is nothing new to the EFFORTRacing driver who has a long resume of first female overall championship and race wins including becoming the first woman in history to win an overall Skip Barber Racing Series championship. e couldnt have asked for a better weekend here at Watkins Glen International, said IMSADevelopment Series Director Steven Sewell. We had the return of IMSAand Porsche to Th e Glen with the 100th race yesterday and then to have the first overall female winner in GT3 Cup today is amazing. The 21-year-old Freiberg has her sights set on the IMSAGT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama championship after taking the top step for the first time in her rookie season.

Lake Placid powers toward Ozone finale See LP, Page B5 B y LAUREN WELBORN N ews-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACIDSummer rains, you can never predict them. Unless, of course, you are a Dixie baseball veteran. In which case, you can always count on the rain to put a damper on summert ournaments. T his was proven a fact as the AAAteams of Avon Park and Okeechobee waited out not one, but two days to play the game that would determine who would be given an opportunity for the championship. Already seeded for the final game was Sebring, who had a bye in the winners bracket and had, at the time, been undefeated. This left Okeechobee and A von Park on their last leg, b oth with one loss and the threat of another to send them home. After postponing Sundays afternoon game until Monday at 5 p.m., and then another two-hour rain delay that night, it seemed the game would finally get underway as the clouds parted. Being the visiting team, Avon Park took an early jump in the first, bringing inf our runs that would go u nanswered in the bottom of the inning. The starting Okeechobee southpaw continued to struggle on the mound, loading t he bases in the top of the second before a reliever would be brought in. Despite this lineup change, six more Avon Park sluggers still found their way around the diamond to put the 10-run mercy rule into effect. The key to this inning seemed to be some carefully laid bloopers, just beyond Soggy start delays Dixie AAA Districts See AP, Page B5 News-Sun photo by LAUREN WELBORN Avon Park starting pitcher Mason Price eyes his target and readies to fire Monday night.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING The tournament without end was finally complete late Thursday morning, with the Sebring Ozone All-Stars taking a 100 win over Lake Placid for the District Championship. With both teams having secured a spot in the Dixie Ozone State Tournament, scheduled for next weekend at East Lakeland, it was a matter of deciding the title and resulting seeds for state. Having trounced the junior Dragons in the opening round at Lake Placid, Sebring was in the drivers seat heading into the finale, needing just one more win to lock it up. But Mother Nature, Cody Carpenter and the Dragon bats werent about to let it end early. Needing two wins over the lil Blue Streaks, Tuesday nights scheduled finale was washed away by the rains and recommencedW ednesday evening. The clouds cleared enough for the two teams to take the field and for Carpenter to h old Sebring down. They had a good game p lan and Carpenter throws r eally good offspeed pitches that kept us off balance, Streak head coach Anthony Gaines said. Hes got good knuckler and we werent able to make the adjustments. Which was something the Lake Placid bats did after being held in check by Josh Rivera in the opening-round loss. After a Dayvon Terry homer just cleared the fence in the first for a 2-0 Sebring lead, the Dragons went to work. Cody Jolley drew a leadoff walk and moved to third when Erskin Toliver reached on an error. Toliver soon stole second and on Carpenters fielders choice, Jolley came in to score and with an error on the play, all runners, including Carpenter, were safe. Toliver scored on a wild pitch to tie it at 2-2, before Katwan Ward belted one over the center-field fence for a two-run homer and a 4-2 lead. Walks to Royston Daley and Jackson Griffin sandwiched a Quwesmael Sholtz single, a Wyatt Moore RBI single and a scoring ground out by Jace Johnston. Another run came in on a pitch that got away and the lead after one stood at 7-2. Sebring got one run back in the top of the second on a Drew Morris RBI double, but Lake Placid added three more in their half of the frame, highlighted by a Jolley home run to left. The Streaks again notched a run in the third, with Louis Perez knocking in Rivera with a single to right. But the Dragons again answered back. With two on, Jolley smashed his second homer of the game to up the lead to 13-4. Toliver reached on an error, stole second and came around on a Kamari Brown single, who reached second SPORTS B SE CTION Inside This Section Hurricane Swim-A-Thon . . .B3 F SU extends Hamilton . . .B3 Cobb makes progress . . .B4 News-Sun Sunday, July 7, 2013 N ews-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE The Sebring Ozone All-Stars hoist their district championship trophy after Thursday mornings win.

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Special athletes from three counties competed in the Special STARS District Bowling competition on Saturday, June 29, at Cozs Bowling Center. The event opened with the Lake Placid Elks Lodge presenting the flag while Marti Capodiferro, of Lake Placid, sang the national anthem. Bowlers competed in singles, doubles, teams and ramps. Medals and ribbons were presented and a lunch was served after the competition. Cracker Trail 4-H Club assisted with the awards. During the event, Highlands County took home 31 medals while Okeechobee won 17 medals and Hardee took 15 medals. There were 70 athletes competing. Highlands won five gold, 15 silver and 11 bronze medals. Okeechobee had 12 gold and five silver medals. Hardee had five gold, eight silver and two bronze medals. Amazingly enough, Okeechobee only came with 17 athletes and every one of them returned home with a medal around their neck. This included their gold medal team of six bowlers Joseph Berry, Nathan Perdue, David Westgate, Joe Borg, Mike Spelts and Tom Gorney. They bowled two games with a total of 1,759 with their handicap. Highlands County had two teams that bowled against them in the competition but they received silver and bronze. The Highlands County silver medal winning team consisted of Gerald Bass, Eddie Thomas, Katie Gibson, Travis Moss, Greg Robinson and John Smith. They had a 1,690 score. The bronze winners were Eva Monk, Ricky Marino, Larry Rivers, Annie Horn, Beth Horn and Nicole Lew is. They had a 1,610 score. In doubles, Okeechobee once again swept the field taking firsts. Jodi Main and Rhonda Crews took first in their division while Joanna Austin and Roger Smith won first in their bracket. Kandi McFarland and Ashley Berry, of Okeechobee, teamed up in assisted ramps to win gold. Okeechobee also won silver in doubles with Jessica Roby and Sara Jo Hill in one heat and Connie Doyle and Steve Kotch in another. Hardee Countys Jack Garnett and Lewis Simpson won bronze in doubles.

After reconvening from Monday nights rainout,A von Park was ahead of Okeechobee 13-10 in the b ottom of the fifth. The delays had o ccurred just as Okeechobee rallied back f rom a 10-run deficit, yet time would not slow them down. Okeechobee managed one run in the bottom of the fifth which would go unanswered by Avon Park in the sixth. All that was needed was three outs, and Avon Park would earn the win. Okeechobee, however, had other plans in mind. Loading the bases multiple times in the innings worked to their advantage as they tied the game. This led into a scoreless extra inning. In the top of the eighth, Avon Parks Dawson Bryant slid safely home after a passed ball to putA von Park back in the lead. Again, only three outs stood between Avon Parka nd the championship game. A fter eight intense innings of play, as well as t hree days worth of rain delays, Avon Park earned t he win and prepared to take on Sebring. Of course, one more rain delay would take the tournament to another day and a new location as the championship went underway.

Hurricanes headstrong in Swim-A-Thon STARS strike and spare it up The bats were cracking as well for Sebrings undefeated AAAteam as they took on Avon Park for the everdelayed championship game. With the tournament moved to a different location and played at an earlier time to avoid the rain, the teams finally saw its end as Sebring mercy-ruled AvonP ark in four innings. T he key for the day was hitting, with every contact adding up to base hits and RBIs as Avon Park struggled to regain the rhythm they had the night before. In the end, it was Conner Delaneys RBI single with t he bases loaded that would bring in Cope Brewer to instate the ten-run mercy rule. It has been a really long week trying to get these games in with the weather said Avon Park coach Jason Massey. Im super proud of these kids; I could not ask for a better fight in kids. The difference in this game was hits we hit the ball we hit the ball right to them, they hit the ball and put the ball in play e came out and we finally put the ball in play t oday, the kids quit thinking about it and they just started swinging, said Sebring coach Kirby Whitehouse. My hat is off to Avon Park, they are a tough team. They are taught baseball the right way and they do a good job with them. Our pitching is spot-on right now, he added, highlighting on the starting efforts of Jonathan Delgado. eve got great parents. They would do anything for you and anything for these k ids. Why, even the bat-boy Carson Andrews contributes his hustle to keeping the team in high spirits, he continued. All the way around, from the fence to the players t o the bat boys, they all c licked this week. With Avon Park and Sebring both in good spirits, it was definitely a great Fourth of July for the books.

AAAs take District Title Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Florida State head basketball coach Leonard Hamilton has received a contract extension that will keep him with the Seminoles through the 201617 season. Hamilton led Florida State to the 2012 ACC Championship and helped make the Seminoles as the third winningest program in the ACC since the start of the 2005-06 season. Hamilton was named ACC Coach of the Year in 2009 and 2012. The university announced the contract extension Wednesday. Besides the Seminoles success on the court, the school reports that Hamilton has graduated his players at a rate of better than 94 percent since his March 2002 arrival in Tallahassee. That rate exceeds the national average. While the ACC already has a reputation for being a competitive basketball conference, school officials expect it to be even tougher this coming season with the addition of Syracuse, Pittsburgh, and Notre Dame.

C M Y K Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Tampa Bay Rays right-hander Alex Cobb has thrown off a mound for the first time since being hit in the head by a line drive last month. Cobb had the bullpen session before Friday nights game against the Chicago White Sox. There is no timetable for when Cobb will pitch in a game. The bullpen went great, Cobb said. It felt like I had before I got injured. Surprising because it usually feels a little awkward out there when you havent been on the mound for a while. Getting on the mound is, obviously, a step in the right direction. I dont think were extremely close, but were a lot faster along than we expected. Cobb said his vertigo symptoms have improved over the past week. s a little bit better, but it should within the next couple weeks, listening to what the doctors say, a drastic improvement in where we are right now, Cobb said. Cobb was struck in the right ear by a ball hit by Kansas Citys Eric Hosmer on June 15 and was hospitalized overnight after being carted off the field. Anytime hes making some progress, thats great, Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon said. o n the throw to the plate. Ward then singled to score Brown and the lead stood at 15-4, with Lake Placid needing just three outs to win on the mercy rule. Jorge Martinez looked to keep hope alive when he r eached on an error, but C arpenter got the next three batters to secure the win and f orce a rubber match to decide the title. I wasnt expecting this, h ead coach Tracy Carpenter said. They just kept on hitting. As the teams were readying to resume after a short b reak, Mother Nature again d ecided to interrupt the proceedings, unleashing a torr ent that would push things b ack yet again. The teams reconvened T hursday morning at the M ax Long Recreational Complex and any moment um Lake Placid may have h ad from the night before w as soon put in check by Sebring starter Dayvon T erry. The rain actually helped u s because we were able to p ut that loss behind us and c ome out fresh, Gaines said. And we knew we were i n a good spot because we h ad Dayvon eligible to pitch the whole game. After a scoreless first, the Streaks put five on the boardi n the second, with Perez k nocking in two with a sing le and RBI singles from D rew Smith, Desmond Gaines and Rivera. The Dragons threatened in their half of the inning, with W ard reaching on an error and one out later, Brown doubling off the right-field w all. But Terry struck out the n ext two hitters to keep Lake P lacid off the board. O ne more dose of precipitation came midway through the contest, as a brief down-p our served as a reminder of the long week. B ut the kids, by now quite accustomed to the daily deluge, played on. Sebring got an RBI from H unter Vanderpool in the t hird and added four more in the fourth to push the lead to 1 0-0 and put themselves three outs away from their o wn mercy-rule win. And Terry would get those three outs to clinch the victory and claim the title at l ong last. A fter five days of stops and starts, cheers and moans, a nd spirited competition between the teams and the e lements, this Dixie Ozone District Tournament was in the books.

C M Y K t he reach of the Okeechobee defense. Okeechobee rallied back i n the bottom of the inning with some strategically placed singles of their ownt o put the board at 10-3. Clearly, this was just the b oost Okeechobee needed. With the bats now woken up, they brought in six more r uns in the next innings as opposed to the slowing AvonP ark offense, seeing the score at 11-9 as the fourth i nning came to a close. A von Park would come back with three more runs, c apitalizing on passed balls and successfully executed s teals. The action continued in the bottom of the fifth, with O keechobee still creeping in on Avon Parks lead. R ight in the rolling thunder of Okeechobees comeback rally, however, the rain took its toll once again. With the condition of the field deemed unplayable due to risk of injury, the game was rescheduled to finish Tuesday night in the bottom of the fifth, with Dillon Jackson fresh on the mound facing Okeechobees Blake Joyner. Joyner will have a slight advantage, given the twoball count as play resumed. However, with two outs already accounted for and the score at 13-10, there was sure to be some flying sparks. For the time being, the game was left with a theatrelike climax to be continued...

C M Y K Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Mary M adison, bonsai expert, was the speaker at the Lake Placid Noon Rotary lunch-e on on June 27. Madison has 30 show trees along with h undreds in training. She has been sculpting miniature trees for 40 years now. M adison has traveled to Japan and China, and has been accepted into an elite Japanese bonsai club in California for a 500-year-oldb onsai she produced. I was the first Caucasian and the only woman accepted into the club, Madison said. That was fun. Theyh ad a big party for me. We sat on the floor. They were s erving sake, she recounted. Her eyes twinkled as shea dded, They would refill my sake every time I turned my head and that was fun, too. The club named Madisons tree senryu,w hich means mystical dragon. She has three trees published in the first U.S. National Bonsai Exhibition2 008 book and has won numerous awards and Best of Shows in Orlando and Miami. She has taught all over the United States, and in Canada and the Bahamas, too. She has lived in Lake Placid for four years, moving here from Homestead. Madison said there are many types of plants that can be made into bonsai, including cypress trees, ficus, junipers and Australian pines. Shrubs like indian hawthorne do well, too. Shes even used a gardenia bush and a sea grape. But bonsai isnt all technique. It involves artistic talent as well as instinct. The hardest part is knowing your tree, knowing what it wants, understanding it, said Madison. When asked if she talked to the trees she said Yes, I do and sometimes it is not a very nice conversation. Bonsais like full sun. Whenever your tree does not grow where you want it to grow, you take a branch and wire it to train it to grow there. By cutting the leaves down you train it to grow smaller leaves. Bonsai is a horticultural art form. Horticulture principles keep it alive and healthy and artistic principles make it attractive. Abonsai is living, growing and ever changing; it is never finished. In styling a bonsai too often we dont call on our imagination and attempt to recreate a bonsai in the image of some basic bonsai icon, stoically following styling traditions which came from Japan some 50 years ago. Do not force your tree into a style, rather give it style. Sometimes Madison has trees for years before she decides what style they are going to take. Madison is active in the Bonsai Societies of Florida, a mother club with 23 chapters all over the state.

However, it does get in the way of outdoor activities so I spent Sunday cooking at my house and by the end of the rain I had enough food at least three days. I started out with making a pot of chili and then decided to make a composed salad of cous cous and l ima beans with maple cider vinaigrette. Then I wanted to cook a piece of fish so I had a filet of largemouth b ass in my freezer that I caught a couple weeks back at Little Lake Red Water. I seasoned it with fresh rosemary, shallots and chopped garlic, then gently sauted it in olive oil. Right before the fish was done,I tossed about a dozen asparagus spears into the pan and finished the fish as the asparagus became tender. I enjoyed that fish with a side of t he cous cous and a glass of S auvignon Blanc while listening to t he rain drops hitting outside my k itchen windows. I guess I have discovered that I like to cook at my house on a rainy day because if it wasnt raining andI am off I am sure I would be outside doing something fun. If it were up to me, I would prefer it for the sun to shine 24 hours a day. This week I have a recipe for that c ous cous that I hope you will e njoy.

C M Y K F amily FeaturesIn the warmer months, we find ourselves outside moreo ften, enjoying nature while playing with the kids and m aintaining our lawns. But this additional time spento utside means more home & garden tools and more opportunity for a mess. Here are some simple tips to keep your outdoor spacesc leaner and more organized: Storage bench Use a storage bench to keep your gardening gloves, tools and children's outdoor toys.A vailable in a wide variety of sizes and styles, you can find the bench that fits your dcor. Plus, they offer an extra seating area when you have company. Bundle cords No one likes the unsightly appearance or hazard of cords. Before your gatherings, bundle together stereo and electronic chords that are exposed, as well as any cords that run across the lawn. Helpful products, such as Velcro One-Wrap ties, keep your items bound tight and out of sight. Paverpots Use old pavers to create plant containers. Simply stack the pavers together making a square shape. The heavy weight of the pavers keeps the dirt and plant contained together. Deck space Use the space under your deck for additional, out-of-sight storage. Tuck plastic lidded storage containers underneath for easy access to children's sporting goods and toys. Mesh bags Pool toys, rafts and inner tubes need a space to dry off. Use mesh bags so these summer toys properly are properly dried, preventing mildew or molding. Properplant care Stock up on essentials for a healthy garden, including the tools to make plant seedlings thrive, such as Velcro Peel Away seed pots. These pots make it easy to remove the pots without disturbing the roots, making transitions from pot to flower bed flawless. Repurpose furniture Turn old furniture pieces, such as old filing cabinets, into instant garage storage solutions. Take out the drawers of the cabinet and turn it on its side. Each empty drawer area provides a spot for large items like brooms, shovels and rakes. Fence storage Turn old coffee or paint cans into storage bins for smaller gardening tools like hand shovels and pruning shears. For easy access while in the garden, cut holes and use rope to hang around a close-by fence post. Tires Stack old tires on top of each other for an outdoor toy container that kids can easily access. Paint the outside to match the color of your house or whatever color you fancy. End-of-season storage Keep your garage area tidy by organizing similar tools together. Use One-Wrap ties to keep gardening tools grouped together, or to keep hoses tightly coiled and out of the way. This product also comes in a variety of colors and sizes so that you can keep everything neat and organized. For more helpful home dcor, DIYand organization solutions, visit www.velcro.com.

Jurassic Park, Ice AgeDawn of theD inosaurs, The Land Before Time and Journey to the Center of theE arth are just a few of the films that feature the large, scaly beasts. Even though most of us think of dinosaurs as extinct, there are creatures that stillr oam the earth that have not changed much since the days of the C retaceous, Triassic and Jurassic periods. Members of the Crocodylia order, such as theA merican alligator and the American crocodile, continue to l ook and act very much like their ancient relatives. Florida is home to countless alligators and crocodiles. These prehistoric looking creatures are ac ommon sight when trekking through wetlands or wet areas in t he sunshine state. Crocodilians have fascinated people for centuries and they are the closest liv-i ng thing to a modern day dinosaur that we may ever see on this earth. A ll members of this order are reptiles and have the same basic layout: big heads; four stumpy, shortl egs; and long, scaly bodies and tails. They resemble the huge lizard-like creatures from the M esozoic Era, which also had marine lifestyles. According to some scientists, the earliest crocodiles were small, terrestrial, two-legged sprinters, ands ome were even vegetarians. But by the beginning of the Jurassic p eriod, crocs had abandoned their terrestrial lifestyles and began to adapt to a marine environmentd eveloping the features that we are familiar with today such as long b odies, splayed limbs, and narrow, flat, tooth-studded snouts with powerful jaws. Toward the middleo f the Cretaceous period, some crocodiles evolved to enormous sizes, such as the Sarcosuchus, w hich measured about 40 feet long and weighed around 10 tons. Today, most alligators and crocodiles dont grow over about 9 or 10 feet long, but there are a fewe xceptions. They inhabit wet areas such as marshes, swamps, rivers, p onds, and lakes. Being reptiles, they rely on external sources for their body temperatures. Oftent imes they may be seen basking near the water in an effort to soak u p the sun and stay warm. During cooler months, they will seek the shelter of their den, which is nor-m ally a burrow or hole located near the water. Alligators are somewhat unusual i n their make up. Most reptiles have a three chambered heart, while alligators have four chambers. Mammals and birds share this feature, which has a few advan-t ages. In a four-chambered heart, the oxygenated and deoxygenated b lood is separated, resulting in much more efficient respiration needed in warm-blooded animals.F urther, crocodilians have a shunt between the left and right aorta a llowing mixing of the two types of blood. This feature enables them to transition to a lower metabolics tate and allow them to dive for long periods of time. Alligators feed on most anything t hat is available including fish, turtles, snakes, birds and small mammals. Juvenile alligators dine mostly on insects, invertebrates and a mphibians. Alligators stock their prey by sitting still and watching. They wait for something edible to pass nearby and they lunge at it with incredible speed. Even thoug h alligators may look large and sluggish, they can be surprisingly fast, with a top speed of 11 miles per hour over short distances. They can outrun most humans if the need s hould arise. They also utilize the ir thick, strong tails to push themselves up to five feet out of thew ater to snag small animals in lowhanging tree branches. F ortunately, alligators are very well adapted to their watery habitats. These prehistoric looking creatures were once in danger of extinction, but laws were put in place to protect them and they ha ve m ade a miraculous comeback. Highlands County is fortunate to h ave a healthy population of alligators. Lake Istokpoga alone houses s ome 3,400 gators of various sizes. The greatest threat to these creat ures today is habitat loss and d egradation. Hopefully, these croc odilian species will be around for a l ong time and future generations w ill be able to see these modern day dinosaurs.

I made light of it and pushed him away. The third time it happened was when he came to my house to do a little repair job form e. That time he also grabbed my breast. I exploded and told him off. L ater on, Dave called and said he was going to come back to do someo ther things that needed attention. I told him he was n ot welcome in my house and that Im furious he would do such a thing. Hea pologized and said he hoped I could forgive him. I am so angry! I no longer want to be in his company. I also dont like that I have to keep his behavior as ecret from my sister. I havent told anyone, and it i s keeping me up nights. Please help. Fuming in Florida D earFuming: Your mistake was in not setting y our amorous brother-inlaw straight the first time he made a pass at you. B ecause you didnt, he thought his advances were welcome. Now that you have made plain to him that youre noti nterested, you will probably have nothing more to worry about. But you are wise not to have him over unless your sister is withh im. I dont blame you for b eing angry, but do nothing until you cool off. Theq uestion then will be whether to tell Sis that her husband behaves inappropriately and how you know. DearAbby: I recently moved back to my home state and in with my grandmother to get away fromm y abusive husband. I have also filed for divorce. I love my grandmother dearly, but when it comes to the divorce or the therapy I go to weekly, she is not understanding and constantly brings up what he did to me. I believe shes frustrated because Im in therapy and she doesnt see a reason for me to go. She thinks if its not talked about, then it never happened. I have tried to explain to her that I cant just let go of what h e did to me and my son. How can I make her understand that Im tryingt o heal wounds that arent visible from the outside? Trying to Heal on the Inside DearTrying to Heal: Y our grandmother may come from a generation in w hich therapy was something to be ashamed of. Away to help her understand the importance of what you are doing wouldb e to invite her to a session with your therapist, let her a ir her concerns, and let the therapist explain to her why it is important thaty ou work this through to become healthy again. T his must be very uncomfortable for you, and you have my sympathy. DearAbby: Im a teenage girl living with my mom, who is a single parent, and my younger sister.W e have struggled financially, but we mostly live a relatively comfortable life, and Mom owns her own home. H owever, she constantly says things to me and my s ister like, Were so poor, or, Were going tol ive under a bridge, even in public! We have asked her to stop several times, but she doesnt care that we are upset and embar-r assed. How can I get her to stop? Embarrassed in the South DearEmbarrassed: R ather than ask her to stop, dont you think you should approach her privately and ask why she is saying it? She may be joking, but her concerns could also be a holdover from when her financial situation was less secure. Please do it. Her response might be educational.

Someone says to you, I told y ou that last week! or t you remember? We can get defensive about comments like this. I know I have. This morning as I was sleeping in it hit me what the problem is. It is sensory overload and our database has failed to file the information in thep roper place. Can you tell that I am learning to speak geek? Lets think about this overload for a second. When I am sitting at home in my chair with my computer on my lap, four dogs, a television on with a ticker tape scrolling across the bottom or music playing, a house phone, a cell phone, my assistant Michele, my iPod, text messaging and instant messaging, emails coming in, the doorbell ringing and my sweet darling somewhere in the house. It is a miracle that I can do anything much less remember something that is tossed into this chaotic mix. We are so smug at believing that the ability to multitask is a virtue. All it really does is divide our attention, take us longer to accomplish anything and make us feel frazzled. Only thing that it does is make us look busy. Just because we look as if we are doing something doesnt mean we are accomplishing anything. This is called busy work. Its no wonder why we cant remember anything. We are not losing our minds. We are multitasking. My sweet darling laughs and tells me that I must have movie amnesia. This morning I have figured out why I dont remember movies that we watch at home. It is because the movie never has my undivided attention. I watch with my computer on my lap. In the evening I dont usually make business calls but my instant messenger is always up and I am checking emails. This is just the physical things I am doing with my hands. My mind is a million other places; processing ideas for essays and what is going to happen tomorrow. S o how do we stop this sensory overload? We have t o pull the plugs. Lets practice turning off and tuning in. This is not going to be easy. I know myself too well but I also know the satisfac-t ion that comes from being able to accomplish something. This is how I wrote my first book. I had made myself a strict routine fort he morning. I know my mornings are my most productive time as long as I am not pulled in several directions at once. My routine started with getting dressed to lace up shoes, making my bed, swishing and swiping the bathroom, emptying the dishwasher, feather dusting,a quick dust mop of the floors and then eating my breakfast with a strong cup of coffee. This is my normal morning routine. My goal was to write 10 pages or three hours, whichever came first. To accomplish this goal I had some rules for myself. 1. Do my regular morning routine. I could not allow my house to fall apart while I was writing the book. 2. Turn on my computer only after I had my breakfast and bottles of water by my side. 3. I could not turn on my email program or a browser, only my Word Program. 4. I could not turn on my i nstant messenger program. 5. This one is the most i mportant. I could not answer the phone! I started my day at 7:30 a.m. by 8 a.m. I was ready to start writing and by 11a .m. I was finished with 10 pages or I had worked for three hours. In two weeks I had a manuscript. Do you see what you can accom-p lish when you turn off the distractions and tune into your brain power. We are very smart people. We dont have to feel frazzled and pulled in many directions. As I have been writing this essay I have had to stop myself several times from turning on the television, radio or my iPod. We can focus. When we practice unplugging and tuning in to the power that we have in our brains the sky is the limit.

Dear Abby FLY Lady Leanne Ely NEWYORK (APThree lawsuits brought by men who said former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash sexually abused them when they were underage were tossed out by a judge who said in a decision published Monday that the men waited too long to sue. U.S. District Judge John G. Koeltl said the claims must be barred because they came more than six years after each man reasonably should have become aware of Clashs alleged violations and more than three years after each turned 18. One other lawsuit is pending in Pennsylvania. Clash resigned from Sesame Street in November after college student Cecil Singleton sued him for more than $5 million, accusing Clash of having sex with him when he was 15. At the time, Clash said he was leaving his job because personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work Sesame Streetis doing. Clash was the man behind Elmo, the popular furry red monster, for 28 years. Singletons lawsuit was among those thrown out Monday. Koeltl also rejected lawsuits brought by Kevin Kiadii, who claimed that Clash initiated contact with him on a gay chat line in 2004 when he was 16, and a third person, a Florida resident, who remained anonymous in his lawsuit as he claimed that Clash befriended him in late 1995 or early 1996 when he was 16 or 17. Sex with a person under age 17 is a felony in New York if the perpetrator is 21 or older. Judge tosses 3 NY lawsuits against ex-Elmo actor

In junior high the abuse was both emotional and physical, and it happened on a daily basis. My parentsresponse was that maybe I was the problem and if I wasnt, people would stop picking on me. (Thats a letter for another day.) What would have been my 10-year high school reunion was two weeks ago. Needless to say, I didnt go. Since the reunion, however,I have received more than 30 messages via Facebook from former classmates. It seems I was the main topic of conversation at the reunion, mainly because everyone apparently wanted to apologize to me. Abby, I dont know how to respond to these people. While I dont doubt the sincerity of their apologies, I truly dont want to have any contact with them (even on Facebook). At the same time, I dont want to be rude and just ignore them. So far, I havent replied to any of their messages. I want to know if I must, and if so, what I should say? To be honest, Id like to tell them all to go to hell, but Im trying to be nice. Lost for Words DearLost forWords: You do not have to say anything to any of these people, and you do not have to be nice. Silence sends a strong message, and it is the one Im recommending. Understand that by apologizing they are trying to make themselves feel better. Its also possible that maturity has caused them to realize what they did was wrong. However, you are not obligated to accept their apologies if doing so will make you feel worse. DearAbby: I am a single mother struggling with my 12-year-old daughter. For the last three months she has been withdrawn, uncommunicative, rude, mean and treats me with contempt. We have been in counseling and are going back again, but I cant ask people to stay with her while I go and recharge my spirit because shes so rude to them as well. I need to know, Abby, what do other parents do to make it through this incredibly painful period in the lives of their teenager and themselves? Single Mom in Canada DearSingle Mom: Any abrupt change in behavior should be regarded as a red flag. Your daughter should be evaluated by her pediatrician to be sure there isnt an underlying cause. Could she have been molested, be using drugs, pills, alcohol, etc.? Do her friends act this way? Does she have friends? Changes like this dont usually happen overnight. Was this behavior tolerated when she was smaller? If a child of mine behaved that way, she would be grounded and her cellphone and I nternet privileges canceled until she was 30. As to whom you can leave her with while you recharge, does this girl have a father, an aunt, a grandparent who can give you respite? Thats how some single parents get a break. But if those resources are not available, you will have to deal with this (with the help of a more effective therapist than the one you were using) until your problem child becomes an a dult.

Expressing preferences clearly about how any declines in ADLs should be handled, what financial resources are available, and who should provide needed care is a good way to retain control.
