Most events will take place in Stuart Park, but activities will be in different places including Devane Park and along the streets. The festival has traditionally been in August, but according to Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce President Eileen May, the date was moved forward in the hope of avoiding the height of hurricane season. (This was that we took lightly, she said. This is a big deal for the vendors. Last year they lost all of Sunday because of the hurricane that was swirling around out there. There will be plenty to do during the Caladium Festival. There will be more than 100 vendors selling unique specialty items along the side streets. Food booths will provide satisfying fare for a fee.

The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature wanted the state high court to block a challenge to last years new map for state Senate districts. But a divided high court ruled Thursday that blocking the lawsuit would undermine the will of voters who adopted new standards for redistricting in 2010. Justices split 5-2 on the decision. The Supreme Court last year initially rejected the Senate map but then approved a revised version during a 30-day review period. Legislative lawyers argued that the courts approval precluded any future lawsuits. But Thursdays ruling states that the initial review was limited and did not include any facts or evidence. Supreme Court wont stop legal challenge of new legislative districts

Sold as a convenience for employees and a m oney-saver for employers, payroll cards are unfairly eating into workerswages.W ith the incentives of major banks and employers aligned, w orkers need federal and state regulators to step in and end the gouging. Payroll cards are like debit cards and can be used tor eceive cash at ATM machines or to make purc hases. Typically, lowerwage hourly workers are the ones who receive their payt his way, with Taco Bell and Walmart among the dozens o f large employers that offer them, according to an investigation by the New York T imes. Nearly 4 million households have someone paid through these prepaid cards, according to a 2011 survey by the FederalD eposit Insurance Corp. Employers like them because they can save thousands of dollars a year over the cost of producing paper pay-c hecks. The cards offer conveni ence, and for some employees without a bank account,t hey can be cheaper to use than check-cashing services. B ut the cards are also another way to extract money from vulnerable workers. Fees are imposed for virtuall y every transaction, including making a cash withdrawa l, making a purchase or checking a balance. Monthly fees can add up to $40 or $50, taking so much out of a paycheck that an employee may fall below the minimum wage. Employees say there is almost no way to avoid paying to access their money. Some employees who are given the option to be paid in more traditional ways, through a paycheck or directd eposit, complain that the choice is illusory since they are automatically enrolled in the payroll card system... P repaid cards are a growi ng area of the financial sect or because these products h ave largely escaped the new r ules and regulations protecti ng financial consumers, and b anks are looking to recoup t he millions of dollars lost as a result of the new restrict ions. For instance, there is a $ 7 inactivity fee for infreq uent use on payroll cards used by more than two dozen major retailers. The Federal R eserve has barred inactivity f ees on credit and debit cards. Employers who want to u tilize this system for payroll should bear the cost for employees. The situation now, where workers have to pay to get paid, is unacceptable. An editorial from The Tampa B ay Times. Low-wage workers getting gouged New York Citys politics has now gotten more titillating. First came news that Anthony Weiner, the Democrat whose crotchshot sexting to a woman he never met led to his resignation from Congress, was running for mayor. Now comes the news that former New York Gov. Elliot Spitzer, who resigned due to his involvement in a prostitution scandal, is running for city Comptroller. New Yorker satirist Andy Borowitz couldnt resist doing a fake news story about former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who a Milan court sentenced to seven years after finding him guilty of paying for sex with an underage prostitute and abusing his office, with the headline: BERLUSCONI MULLS NEW YORK CITYRACE. Hey, the way things are going, it could happen. Long gone are the days when then-New York Gov. Nelson Rockefellers 1962 divorce from his wife and his remarriage shocked many, lost him droves of women-voter support and destroyed his early 1963 status as the front-runner for the 1964 Republican nomination. By the late 90s it was clear there had been a shift in American society and culture: despite the Monica Lewinsky scandal and impeachment. Bill Clinton rose in the polls, left office with the highest end-term rating (68 percent remains one of the countrys most popular political figures. Sex scandals are now becoming ongoing reality shows: the set up (the good career), the fall (the tearful apology), the short-term consequences (resignation resurrection (running for office again). Much of the media was wrong earlier this year in predicting South Carolinas voters would tell Mark Sanford to take a hike when he ran for a House seat in a special election. Sanford resigned as Governor when it turned out that when he was missing for six days in 2009 he wasnt hiking on the Appalachian Trail as he said, but visiting his girl friend in Argentina. Critics and some in the media considered Sanford shameless in the way he framed his affair and trumpeted his happy life with his new wife, his Argentinean soul mate. Endemol Productions couldt produce as compelling a reality show and The Mark Sanford Show got boffo ratings (he won Writes The Daily Beasts Political Director John Avlon: The sad fact is that in our celebritydriven society, sex scandals guarantee that a politician will rise above the humdrum of campaigns full of earnest legislators. The press is eager to cover the soap opera, and the public seems eager to engage in the real-life telenovela. Now the clichd old rule of Hollywood theres no such thing as bad press seems to apply to public service. What could possibly go wrong? The question is: so where does it end? Times Mark Halperin on MSNBCs Morning Joe asked Spitzer: Are there any things people in elective office, a high office like governor of New York, could do, that involved law breaking, lying to the public, that you would consider as a voter disqualifying? Or nothings disqualifying if a person comes back and says look at what Ive done for the last five years, look at my great ideas? Spitzer basically replied that hell leave that up for the public to decide. And many think he can win. Meanwhile, polls suggest Weiner is catching on and you just KNOWthe New York tabloid headline youll see if he does: einer Rises Again. WeinerSpitzer wins would be a sign of how impotent 20th century standards have become in todays seemingly shrugging, reality-showloving 21st century world.

Amendment IV, U.S. Constitution When I started kindergarten in the f all of 1953, the administration of public schools was mostly a localm atter. Other than a record of my birth five years earlier, little had probably been recorded about me at the state or federal level. In 1964, when I was a sophomore in h igh school, several key events put me on the state and federal radar screen. Like all sixteen-year-olds, I got my drivers license, which was followed in short order by the purchase of myf irst car, which, of course, also had to be registered with the state. That year I also secured my first paying job. The federal government immediately issued me a card with my very own nine-digit number on it. I was assured that it was not for identification purposes. It even said so right on the card. Soon, another branch of the government, the Internal Revenue Service, wanted to know exactly how much money I was making. Two years later, I graduated from high school and headed off to college, with a federally guaranteed student loan and a Selective Service draft deferment. Two more files with myn ame on them. In 1968, I decided to work for a semester and try to figure out what I really wanted to do with the rest of my life. Soon, Uncle Sam decided toh elp me with the decision. The letter stated that I had until April 3, 1969, to c hoose a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces or the choice would be madef or me. I chose the Air Force, thereby creating another four-year federal file on myself. During that time, my wife and I were married. Another file, at all levels. H onorably discharged in 1973, I returned to college on the G.I. Bill. Regular checks and another file, this time with the Veterans Administration. Then came kids, car payments and a m ortgage, all recorded in the annals of government at every level. When we declared our children on our first itemized income tax return, we were required to accept a nine-digit number for each of them as well. As our finances became more sophisticated, we had to document all of our expenses for the IRS. The amount we give to charity is known. So is the kind of car I drove for business last year and how many miles I put on it. Of course, that was no secret, since it had to be licensed to be legal. The government knows at least as much about my property as I do. They h ave all the information on my home, including its value, which they determine in order to charge me a fee called property taxes for the privilege of living there. T hey know my race, gender, age, health problems, where I was born, where I live now, and, unfortunately, how many guns I own. They know which church I attend, w hat candidates I support and how many credit cards I carry. Several y ears ago, when Bill Clinton was president and I was a state leader int he Christian Coalition, I suspect that an FBI file with my name on it was among those illegally stored on White House computers. They even know which library b ooks Im reading. I must deal with the reality that even my cell phone records, email messages and Internet searches are subject to scrutiny by these people.A fter all the privacy I have forfeited in the last 60 years, you wouldnt think that it would bother me anymore, would you?

Walter T. Richardson, a longtime pastor and chairman of Miami-Dade Countys Community Relations Board, which has been holding town hallstyle meetings about the case. Weve already lost one soul and we dont want to lose any more. Martin, from the suburb of Miami Gardens, was 17 when he died. He was in Sanford visiting his father and fathers fiancee when Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, fatally shot him during a physical confrontation in a gated community in February 2012. Martins supporters portrayed the shooting as racially motivated, while Zimmerman, who identifies himself as Hispanic, claimed self-defense. Charged with seconddegree murder, Zimmerman is pleading not guilty at the trial unfolding in a Sanford courthouse. After police initially refused to arrest Zimmerman, there were many large but peaceful protests in both Sanford and the Miami area as well as in New York and other cities. Those demonstrations included a mass walkout at nearly three dozen South Florida high schools. Many in Sanford say they doubt the trials outcome would spark local residents to take to the streets. The main focus was to get Zimmerman arrested and have him tried before a jury of his peers in a court of law, said Clayton Turner Jr., president of the Seminole County branch of the NAACP. That was the main issue, not how we felt about whether hes innocent or guilty Not everyone is so certain. Shantree Hall, 37, a lifelong Sanford resident who is black, said a Zimmerman acquittal might anger many in the African-Americanc ommunity who already feel they are less likely to obtain justice. The protests that led to Zimmermans arrest taught many people that was the only way to get things done, she added. ith Trayvon, the noise was too loud for them. Thats why they couldnt sweep it under the rug, she said. Recent Miami-area high school graduate Jude Bruno, 18, said he doesnt sense from friends and peers that there is a powder keg in South Florida waiting to explode should Zimmerman be found innocent. Bruno is chairman of the Miami-Dade County Youth Commission, which has been working with local youth groups to stress a peaceful reaction. e want to be the example to the world because the whole world is watching us, Bruno said. Bruno spoke after a Community Relations Board meeting this week that drew several hundred people to a Miami Gardens library auditorium, some of them wearing Justice for Trayvon T-shirts. Continued from A1 budget. It means big c hanges for people. We have to shrink government. This is partly because all allocations for one year ared ecided on the numbers from the preceding year, and Highlands County still lags behind the countrys recovery and is still dealingw ith the recession and lower property values. Elwell said revenues for 2013-2014 are $1.55 million lower, and expenses $1.95 million higher than2 012-2013 a gap of $3.5 million. W hy are expenses higher? Retirement contributions have higher premi-u ms, health insurance is going up, the constitutional o fficers have gone five years without cost of living increases and the cost of fuel continues to fluctuate radically, Elwell said. H e presented figures to give the audience an idea of h ow things have changed. For example, in the boom period of 2005-08 the coun-t y had plenty of revenue, he said. At the peak in 2008, w ith the millage rate at 7.1 percent, the county took in slightly more than $42 mil-l ion, on property valued at more than $6 billion. In 2013, on the other h and, property values had dropped to about $4 billion. W ith the millage remaining at 7.1 percent, tax revenues are predicted to be about $31 million, slightly less than the $32 million col-l ected in 2012. Elwell said the bulk of the countys revenue (35 percent) goes to public safety, while 28 percent goes to transportation, 14 percent goes to generalg overnment and 11 percent to the physical environment. The balance of allo-c ations, each only 2 percent or less of the budget, go to h uman services, culture and recreation, economic environment, financing uses and court-related expenses. Elwell was asked if the c ommission could cut the budgets of constitutional o fficers (the sheriff, the clerk of courts, the elections supervisor, the proper-t y appraiser and the tax collector), especially because t he sheriff has asked for an additional $1 million this year. The commission can-n ot call specific cuts in constitutionals, he said. e do not have a line-byl ine veto power. He also explained that the tax coll ectors office was funded through fees, not through the countys general fund. Elwell was asked if the sheriff was asking for morem oney because of taking over law enforcement in Avon Park. Elwell said no, Avon Park pays for its own services. There is no fiscal impact on the county. The commissioner said v olunteers being used to save money is a great idea, but it does haved rawbacks. Volunteers are not as available as employe es. For example, he said two volunteers at the Animal Control shelter have gone north for the summer and citizens haveb een very slow to volunteer for county and municipal a dvisory boards, many of which have more than one opening. E lwell was asked if raising the homestead except ion has hurt revenue collection. He said no. What are we doing to a ttract businesses to Highlands County? he was asked. It will be slow growth, Elwell replied. We dont h ave the workers for a big industry; look for smaller businesses. He added the county had to improve its technical infrastructure. Look for businesses dealing with distribution, administration and light manufacturing. The county commission will begin budget discussions at the next morningc ommission on Tuesday.

C M Y K By JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Being a member of the Florida Army National Guard for the past 16 years and currently a technician for the Florida Army National Guard and is a Member of 3116 Forward Support Company HIMARS located in Lake Wales, Sergeant First Class Eltoro Lewis knows the commitment necessary to serve our country. Last year he found out that serving the community as Avon Parks Youth Football and Cheer (APYFC just as demanding. Lewis has been part of the Mid-Florida Football and Cheer Conference (MFFCC has been part of all three Mitey Mite championship teams. When then president of the APYFC, Richard Dick, decided to step down after the 2011 season, Lewis stepped up into the leadership role. Richard (Dick great job in getting the organization to where it needed to be. Said Lewis, When I came in, I was just trying to maintain what they built and get the organization to grow from there. In his first year, Lewis was instrumental in getting the clubhouse rebuilt. Lewis found out later that it was in such disrepair that it was actually slated to demolition a few years ago. Lewis went to the city, which in turn went to the county and got approved for a grant to fix the clubhouse, both inside and out, at no cost to the football league. e have a new roof, working toilets, working urinals, storage space for the equipment, said Lewis as he gave a quick tour of the facility, and an office to actually work out of. Some of the work the contractors did without even charging us. Lewis noted that that roof was contracted to be silver, but Marleys roofing upgraded, at no cost, to a green roof so it would match the surrounding buildings. The soffett was installed by Bobby Lee Aluminum. These businesses recognized what the organization stood for and was willing to go the extra mile to help said Lewis. He was especially proud of two trophy cases that were built and donated by the building contractor, Watts Construction from Haines City. e had no place to put everything, said Lewis, they were just sitting around all over the place. Watts Construction built these two cases so we could store and display our trophies. I cant say enough for what they did. Now that parents are seeing improvements in the facilities questions are being asked when will the Memorial Field Stadium get the much needed repairs done such as the press box needs to be restabilize which the coaches keep bringing to my attention, the stadium needs to be pressure washed and painted are just some of the current issues said Lewis. Though Lewis is proud of what they accomplished in his first year, he notes By LAUREN WELBORN N ews-Sun correspondentIf you are a regular attendant of Sebring High School football games, you are sure to know the name Zac Morris or, as he is often called by classmates, ZacMo. A2011 graduate, Morris made the journey over to Melbourne to attend Florida Institute of Technology pursuing a degree in Business Administration. Now preparing for his j unior year, he will also be preparing for his first offic ial game as a college athlete. is our inaugural season, Morris explained, So we have not yet had any official games. This p ast year we did have four official intra-squad scrimm ages in front of the community In the upcoming season, Morris will be a part of an NCAADivision II ranked team in the Gulf South Conference. That is not to say that the last two years have gone to the wayside, however. Scrimmage games persisted in order to continually build up the team. For Morris, this included one cherished memory of a t riple-overtime win in the third official scrimmage of the season. The fun part was, due to team injuries, I even had the chance to play three series as linebacker, which reminded me of my Sebring High School days. In his senior season as a S treak, Morris set a singleseason record for most tackles with a total of 140 as well as having one interception that was returned for a touchdown. This pace was set even in his previous year, when he recorded 99 tackles, five forced fumbles, five fumbles recovered and one safety as a junior. Named his teams defensive MVPtwice and defensive MVPof Highlands County his junior year, Morris always p roved to be a force to be reckoned with. As he has grown with his new Florida Tech team, so have his skills as a free safety. The most improved aspect of my game would be my mental aspectjust the amount of knowledge learned from the coaching staff, as well as constant film studies has improved my game. With this improvement came a need for adjustment and transition, naturally, as he began his first years of college. The transition to collegiate football was tough and fast. Literally, he shared. Everything speeds up: from the pace of practice,t he athletes you are playing against, and even inside the classroom. The change comes fast, b ut to be in the position to continue doing what I love i s well worth it. When asked how he is a ble to manage his time on and off the field, Morris summed it up in one word: focus. s all about focus. I attended college to receive an education to provide myself a future. That has helped me set my prioriW ell, Ive been officially retired for two months, and although retirement provides unlimited opportunities to r elax, do a little reading, work around the house and y ard and most importantly g o fishing whenever I want, my dream has always been to own a fishing tackle store. Kind of a Man-Cave sort of thing. Back in December, 2004, I opened REDS Fishing Tackle in Avon Park. It was a pretty big store and for the first few months we were open, we did relatively well. But by mid-April, business began to fall off and by June, we were lucky to have more than an occasional shopper stop by. I named the store for my father, a big burley redhead who loved fishing and hunting, and always said hed love to own a fishing tackle store when he retired. He died at the age of 54 and never had that opportunity. We closed REDS in early 2006, and it was one of the biggest disappointments in my life. In hindsight, I think it was just too big and with the over-stocked inventory I tried to carry, daily sales just couldnt support the overhead. So Ive decided to try again, on a much smaller scale. REDS II, located at 3603 Sebring Parkway, in Sebring, Florida will open in August, 2013. Unlike the original REDS, Im not planning a big grand opening such as we had back in January 2005, no fan-fare, well just open the doors to the public. REDS II is relatively small, 600 square feet, and will likely be crammed, floor to ceiling with all the latest and greatest fishing tackle that fishing tackle stores typically carry. Walking distance from Lake Jackson will be a plus, and our plan is to carry plenty of live bait. I hired a couple of guys to do the buildout for me and they did a great job. Bob Mysliwy, owner of RM Home Repairs, LLC, (863-840-0991 Richard Neely have done work for me in the past, replacing sinks, repairing toilets, painting and building my fishing dock and you couldnt find a harder working couple of guys who are also avid bass fishermen. I have to leave them alon e to get any work done though, since they both love to swap fishinstories. I highly recommend them. Now that I have the sign up on the store, and the built out is complete, I wanted to mention it in my column since a few folks have asked me when wed be opening. Right now, my plan is to open sometime in August, but it will depend on when I get my orders filled, priced and up on the pegboard. By the way, I dont really plan on working there as much as just hanging out. My daughter Amy will likely manage the store and Ill be in and out between fishing trips. Once we firm up an opening date, Ill let everyone know in my column. I hope youll stop by and do a little shopping.FISHIN GALS I got an email from Debra Doud, a Cardiologist at Florida Hospital last week about fishing on the 4th of July. You may recall from one of my previous columns, I took Debra on a trip to Lake Istokpoga a few months ago and we caught a dozen bass flippinthe reeds. Apatient of hers had shown her a square billed crankbait that he swore was the hottest lure ever made and she was anxious to give it a try. I typically dont fish on holidays, particularly the 4th of July, since jet skiers, water skiers, tubers and the like tend to take over the water and the boat ramps can be a mess. But she wanted to go early so we agreed to meet at 6 a.m. on the 4th. Right on time, Debra brought a friend of hers, Kristina Jones, a Sebring resident and we dropped the boat in Lake Jackson a few minutes after 6, just as the sun was starting to rise. The wind was blowing SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, July 12, 2013 Page B3 C ourtesy photo Debra Doud, left, and Kristina Jones joined Don for an early morning fishing trip on the 4th of July.

The Florida athletes traveling to Cleveland qualified for the National Senior Games at the 2012 Florida International Senior Games and State Championships last December in Polk County. The 2013 National Senior Games will be contested from July 21 through August 1 with more than 10,000 athletes, age 50 and over, competing in 19 sports. Sebring athletes competing in the 2013 National Senior Games will be Anna Smith in Archery and Track and Field, Lillian Webb in Bowling and Track and Field, Gail Brown in Golf and Pickleball, Jerry McClain in Golf, James Maynard in Pickleball, Diane Reynolds in Pickleball, and Tom Stadler in Pickleball as well. Notable accomplishments of the Sebring athletes competing include, 98-year old Sebring resident Lillian Webb, competing in bowling and track and field.

Besides Webb, two other Sebring athletes will compete in two sports. Gail Brown will compete in golf and pickleball in the 75-79 age group. She won a gold medal in golf at the 2012 Games with a score of 85 and won a womens doubles pickleball gold medal. Anna Smith will be in archery and track and field events in the 7074 age group. Once again, the state of Florida is among the top five traveling contingents to the biennial Games. Since 2001, over 3,000 Florida athletes have travelled to the National Senior Games, which is held in odd numbered years. The most Florida athletes to travel to the National Senior Games came in 2007 when 645 athletes represented the Sunshine State in Louisville, Ky. Among the most popular sports for the Florida contingent is softball with 86 athletes competing, track and field has 70 Florida participants and tennis will have 53 Floridians on the courts. The 568 athletes in Cleveland will have a tough act to follow. At the 2011 National Senior Games, in Houston, Texas, the Florida contingent of 496 senior athletes collected 243 overall medals (101 gold, 80 silver and 62 bronze), the second highest total of all states, behind only the host state of Texas. In six National Senior Games events between 2001 and 2011, Florida athletes won 1,119 medals. Follow the Florida athletes during the 2013 National Senior Games at www.flasports.com. The 2013 Florida International Senior Games and State Championships, presented annually by the Florida Sports Foundation, will be held December 7-15 in Lee County and eight local qualifying events will be held between lateSeptember and November. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, July 12, 2013Page B3 E.O.

Between the balance of school and practice there isnt much time for anything else and thats the key to staying on top of them both. If it is not school-related its football-related and vice versa. Ive had to learn to m anage time wisely and make sure nothing is wasted. Of course, Melbournes prime location does offer some benefits. I enjoy Florida Tech and living in the Melbourne area. The location is good and living ten minutes from the beach helps relieve the stresses of college. Also, to be able to play in front of my family and loved ones makes it an enjoyable experience. His attitude towards his schoolwork reflects as he offers some words of wisdom to younger athletes as well. Stay focused on your grades, he advised. Athletics can only get you so far, but academics can get you past that. Always go above and beyond what people ask and expect of you. Morris is a key example of l eadership on and off of the f ield, and this is one of the aspects he is working on improving for the big season. As a potential starter on new team, I find myself in a position to be able to lead, not only by example, but vocally. I feel this is one area I must improve to help the team. He explained that vocal leadership includes up making sure players are playing at full potential, being prepared to address and work with those who are not, as well as getting people together to do the right things. Morris is grateful for his opportunities as a Florida Tech Panther. My favorite thing about being a college athlete at Florida Tech is the ability to receive a quality degree while doing something I love. It provides me a sense of solitude, escape, and has blessed me with a group of friends for a lifetime. The life a college athlete is hard. Aches, bruises, e xtreme time-management t ests, late nights, early mornings, naps and unparalleled excitement all are included in my life as a college athlete. Morris has some pretty great fans he is thankful for as well-fans he considers his greatest support group and that he credits for his success. My mom, for a friendship only a mother could bear. My dad for his efforts to provide and support me no matter what. My older brother who is my first coach, my biggest fan, and my foundation of football. My sister, for the smiles when I am having a rough day, my little brother who provides me the opportunity to be a role model for someone, and my granny for her prayers and constant reminder to have faith. ithout my family, I wouldnt be the position I am today Morris also wanted to recognize Sebring High School coach LaVaar Scott. His efforts during my days as a Blue Streak have m olded me in becoming a successful in college athlete. T he discipline, dedication and perseverance he not only displayed but developed in me have allowed me to succeed at Florida Tech. He is a true role model for the youth of Highlands County Now, with the strong and ongoing support of him family, the experiences he had asa Blue Streak, and the preparations he has taken as a Panther Morris is looking with hopeful blue eyes into this first season for Florida Tech. Next year is when it all begins. Next year will be our first ever season at Florida Tech and will begin September 7 at 7 p.m. against Stetson. Morris shared that the conference his team will be playing in will put them against National Division II Champion Valdosta State. I am looking forward to everything. The competition, the challenge, and the reward of playing collegiate football have me eager to return. Continued from B1 Morris anxious for Panther debut right into the ramp, and for considering how early it was, I knew it would be a tough day fighting the wind. The gals didnt seem to mind the rough water as they tossed crankbaits and worms in and around the underwater structure all morning. Locating the brushpiles and sunken boats was the easy part. Trying to keep the boat positioned over or near the structure was thec hallenge. S outhwest winds of 1015 mph made it near impossible to hold a position in the vast openness of Lake Jackson. At one point, Debra hooked two bass on two casts, only to see them p erform their acrobatic jumps and spit the hook. It was a tough day on the water as we motored in when I suggested to Debra that she might want to drive the boat. Although hestitant at first to take the wheel, she had the Ranger running full bore and crashing into the waves in a matter of minutes. I think she was surprised at how fast a bass boat can run.LAKE JACKSON I had the opportunity to fish again with Paul T ardiff on Lake Jackson l ast Tuesday. He truly knows that lake and although we didt kill em, we did manage to catch 7 bass in water between 12 and 22 feet deep. Paul is an incredible fisherman, and hes armed himself with equipment that assists him like a remote controlled electric motor that he can set to keep him over a structure, as well as a side reading depthfinder. Ive never fished Lake Jackson that much, always preferring to fish lakes like Istokpoga, Okeechobee and Walk-inWater that offers heavy vegetation and lots of opportunities for flippin and topwater. L ike most fishermen, deep water structure fishing is not my strong suit. But its definitely Pauls. Fishermen can be a strange lot. Ive fished tournaments with guys that actually tried to hide their baits from me. And most fishermen would never share their hotspots. But Paul is more of a teacher, as well as a gentleman bass fishermen and his willingness to share his secret spots with me is an indication of what a truly great sportsman he is. D on Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, b ass fishing guide, and custom rod builder. He lives in the Golf Hammock area of Sebring with his wife Lexie, and is the owner of a custom rod building company appropriately named The American Fisherman He will soon be opening REDS II, a fishing tackle store in S ebring.

Lewis noted that it unrealistic to think that everyone is going to make it to the NFL, but the kids to use this as at ool. Playing sports helps to build character, stated Lewis, it helps teach kids how to get along. We all get mad in the heat of a situation, but you have to control your emotions and that is what we do with the kids. L ewis also believes that football is not the sole answer. e encourage the kids to play other sports, he continued. Whether it is baseball, basketball, soccer, track and field, badminton, as long as they participate in other sports. At the end of the day it gives you more opportunity and more to fall back on. Lewis remarked that by p laying different sports, you get to interact with different people and experience different coaching styles. Lewis highlighted three areas on why he believes the APYFC has been successful and feels that it builds af oundation of future successes of their kids. Discipline, respect, integrity; cited Lewis. ith those three it is a recipe for success for our kids. It is fine they can come out here and be an all-star, but what are you doing in the classroom. Lewis noted that when school starts, they start checking on their grades and behavior reports from school. From flag, to include the cheerleaders, all the way to the seniors, they want to make sure they are doing what they are supposed to do both on and off the field. I am a firm believer in discipline. We do corrective behavior, if they bring in a bad report; we make them doe xtra runs and such as a consequence and to help build c haracter. This is what you did wrong and this is the repercussions of that, at the same time, we are not going to let a child leave feelingd efeated. We have to hold them responsible for their actions. We are not going to hold their hand, but we willl ead the way for them. Both parent and kids alike have bought into the program. Several parents had cited t hat their child will make them go home before practice just to bring their school reports in, knowing that there are consequences if they do not bring them. Lewis is a firm believer t hat if a kid is in high school, they should be playi ng Junior Varsity or Varsity and not youth leagues. Alot of the kids want to stay in the youth leagues because that is what they know, said Lewis. We let them know that you have to step out of that comfort zone. You cant always choose your coaches, so you have to step up and try new things. Running the league is a lot of responsibility and timec onsuming. Lewis noted that there is always a need for volunteers, especially during home games. H is wife, Tymica Lewis, is the concession manager and supports him to the upmost in all areas of the Organization. Jamie Beck handles registration for about 120 kids int he organization. From the start of a home g ame on Saturdays, Lewis and board members may spend up to 15 hours at the football field in getting the field and concession standr eady as well as cleaning afterwards. There are actually peop le out there that are willing to help the organization and like any other organization, we need volunteers, expressed Lewis. When the same people keep helpingo ut, they get burned out. I just like working with people. When you treat people with dignity and respect, you get more out of it. Safety, especially concussions, has been in the forefront for the past several years and even though Lewis has several items on his agenda, this is on the top of the list. The league will be holding fundraisers and seeking donations to refurbish or replace older helmets, shoulder pads and uniforms. All donations can be sent to APYFC PO Box 218 Avon Park FL33826. Because of the success of t he league, they were invited and sponsored by Heads Up Football to attend a clinic on concussions, in which Vice President of the APYFC Dale LaFlamboy is going to represent the league. We do not just want success locally, concluded Lewis. We want success all over. Everyone knows who Avon Park is. We are a smallc ity with a big name.

Sertoma hits Hammock News-Sun photo by LAUREN WELBORN W ill Redding watches his approach shot Thursday morning as the Sertoma Junior Tour took on Golf Hammock. See Sundays News-Sun for results. By MARK DIDTLER A ssociated PressTAMPA Alex R odriguez says hell have a day off from his injury rehab assignment Friday leaving him free for a possible meeting with Major League Baseball investigators. The New York Yankees third baseman is scheduled for the interview as part of baseballs probe of the closed anti-aging clinic Biogenesis, which is accused of distributing banned performanceenhancing drugs. Rodriguez has said he used PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has denied using them since. Rodriguez says he has been told not to discuss the probe. While it may take a long time for MLB to sort out whether A-Rod and others w ill be suspended, his shortterm focus is on his comeb ack from hip surgery last winter. He was 1 for 3 with a linedrive RBI single for Class A Tampa on Wednesday, leaving him 2 for 15 during his rehabilitation assignment. It was his first RBI in six minor league games. I was happy with all three at-bats, Rodriguez said. Two balls right on the nose. This process, theres going to be some good days and some bad days, but it was a good day Rodriguez grounded out against injured Toronto reliever Sergio Santos, who pitched one inning for the D unedin Blue Jays. Rodriguez had an extens ive defensive session on a back field after the game. Im trying to replicate my spring training routine as much as possible, Rodriguez said. Rodriguez said he will play third base on Thursday with Tampa. Rodriguez has been working the past couple days with Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, who was part of a postgame batting practice session Tuesday and watched the game Wednesday from the dugout. Jackson is a Yankees adviser. Like he told us, he has 45 years of major league experience. He reminded us of that, Rodriguez said with a smile. Reggie is great. Reggie is fun to have around. He was very helpful after the game yesterday Rodriguez has played a maximum of five innings at third base in any minor league game and he would not be surprised in the next few days to increase his time at third to seven innings. When asked whether could rejoin the Yankees at first as a DH, Rodriguez said manager Joe Girardi puts up the lineup and whatever he wants me to do Im going to do. Im just anxious to get up there and help the team win, Rodriguez said. A-Rod off Friday, free to meet with MLB I was happy with all three atbats. ALEXRODRIGUEZ

C M Y K DearPharmacist: I see a naturopathic doctor for chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. She recom-m ended coffee enemas. Suzy, Im a faithful reader, do you think this is safe? V.A., Seattle, Wash. Answer: Yes. Coffee enem as are used by holistic physicians for all sorts of conditions including cancer. Lots of people find help with constipation, fatigue and liver detoxification con-c erns. I know this sounds bizarre b ecause you prefer to taste your coffee, not insert it rectally! Agreed. Y ou may be hearing about coffee enemas today, but t hey are nothing new and complications from coffee enemas are highly unusual. Hey, I just thought of a new franchise concept calledS tarbutts ... entrance in the rear. S eriously, coffee enemas may help relieve constipation, insomnia and cognitivep roblems; they may eliminate (or control c andida and other pathogens (without disrupting intestinal flora). Coffee enemas aref requently used in natural cancer protocols such as the Gerson Therapy (www.gers on.org). Coffee enemas were outl ined as a treatment in the revered Merck Manual, a thick book that physicians used as their primary reference for decades, until them id 1970s. Its not the enema as much as it is the coffee that helps. You are exposed to a barrage of toxic compoundsi n your life; you can easily become overloaded. Some of y ou cannot detoxify properly. Coffee enemas help you make glutathione, an antioxi-d ant, and that sends poisons packing. More on that m omentarily. Coffee enemas can be done at home inexpensively. You just need a comfortable spot on the floor of yourb athroom, or bathtub. As the coffee is retained in your b owel, the fluid goes through your intestinal wall, through the portal vein toy our liver. The stimulating effects and healing comp ounds of coffee jumpstart your liver and gallbladder. Bile flows. T here are compounds in coffee like kahweol and cafestol that spark product ion of glutathione, and that is a strong cleansing comp ound in your body one that consumers pay good money for when they buy glutathione as a dietary supplement, or get IVinjectionso f it. To make more glutathione naturally (by using a coffee enema) is awesome. These enemas may allow for relaxation, a better moo d, more energy, refreshing sleep and greater mental clarity. If you do too manye nemas per week, you may e xperience electrolyte imba lances. Restoring your electrolytes is crucial, as coffee is a potent drug mugger of m inerals. While the controv ersial cancer specialist Dr Max Gerson suggested up to six per day, I think that is way too much for the aver-a ge person. Doing a coffee e nema weekly (even daily for awhile) is probably OK f or most, but always follow y our doctors recommendat ion. T he recipe for a coffee enema is different than the beverage. Ive written ane xtended version of this co l umn to teach you more about coffee enemas, the terrific health benefits, as well as the best coffee, enema equipment and safety concerns.

British sailors were known as Limeys because of the use of limes to prevent scurvy on long sea voyages. Jason and theA rgonautsmagical golden apples were probably oranges. Linus Pauling, the only winner of two unshared Nobel prizes( Chemistry and Peace), thought that Vitamin C in high doses was the cure for everything from cancer to the common cold. He was ridiculed by many, but now 20 years after his death he may be getting the last laugh. More and more curative powers are being attributed to Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant fighting the free radicals that cause aging and some cancers. It is needed for the connective tissue that forms the framework of our bodies from eyes and skin to bones. Using data from the Framhingham study (a longterm health study that initially looked for links between lifestyle and heart disease); Vitamin C was linked to thicker knee cartilage and less arthritis. A new study shows that it helps with complex regional pain syndrome, a very painful disorder occurring after some hand and foot injuries or surgeries. Vitamin C deficits are a ssociated withi ncreased blood pressure, stroke and heartd isease. There is a direct effect on the for-m ation of plaques in the arteries and there appears to be a beneficial interaction with LDLcholesterols. Smoking decreases the levels of Vitamin C adding to its deleterious effects on lungs, hearts and healing in general. Vitamin C does not, unfortunately, cure the common cold, but there is evidence that people who take it regularly may have fewer colds of shorter duration. There definitely is a beneficial effect on the immune system. It helps with exercise induced asthma and may help with other allergies and asthma. There is good evidence that with Zinc and Vitamin E, Vitamin C helps against macular degeneration. Why arent we hearing about more studies? First there is no money to be made on a vitamin, no matter how wonderful. There is less money for research than there are projects. Vitamin C is difficult to s tudy because it occurs in so many foods and is vari-a bly absorbed making it hard to standardize. What should you do? There is agreement that the best source is naturallyo ccurring. So eat more vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, tomatoes and brussel sprouts. Citrus fruits so plentiful here in Florida area lso good sources of Vitamin C. If you are concerned, you can take a supplement but probably do not need more than 500 to 1000mg a day. Vitamin C is a water-based vitamin so it is difficult to overdose, but excess will not be stored. So help our local economy and give your taste buds a treat with lots of fresh vegetable and citrus.

C M Y K Jesus said many startling things during His earthly ministry! However, whatw as equally startling was how he challenged the worlds standard of greatness. When we think of Jesus, the Christ, we most often reflecto n the great sacrifice on the cross but lets turn our attent ion to the Messiah-Servant. Among paganism, heat henism, idolatry and superstition, a gentleman was one who never worked, yet Jesus said I am among you as the One who serves (Luke2 2:27). It is interesting to note that His Father was not ashamed to direct the attention of man to His Son, the Christ as a servant. In fact,t his was in the Eternal plan: But made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a servant, and coming in the likeness of men (Philippians 2:7). Jesus, in setting an example to the Twelve, stated in Matthew 20: 27-28 And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave, just as the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many The Messiah not only taught about being a slave, but manifested it in action such as recorded in John 13. Luke (22:24 tude of the apostles in the upper room: But there was also rivalry among them, as to which of them should be considered the greatest. On the eve of His cruel death, fully conscious of His Deity and His glory, like a common Oriental slave, Christ girded Himself with a towel and washed the disciplesfeet. Jesus did not institute feet washing as an ordinance but used an age old custom to teach humility and servitude. Jesus set the model/example that is to be carried out in His spiritual body, the church. The sons ofZ ebedee (Matthew 20: 2025) did not get the message a nd their heirs today have also failed to see there is noh ierarchy in the Lord's kingdomall are servants. This fact is also made very clear in Jesus' teaching to the Pharisees and scribes inM atthew 23:5-12. This same mindset is stated by the apostle Peter as he speaks to elders/pastors of the church: Shepherd the flock of Godw hich is among you, serving as overseers, not by constraint but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock (First Peter 5:2,3). Think upon this statement by the Messiah-Servant: A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher (Luke 6:40 When these truths are implanted into ones soul/spirit (James 1:21 will be no place for such manmade distinctions as clergy and laity or manmade titles as Reverend, Father, Priest, Cardinal, Pope, Pastor, etc. What a new concept the Messiah brings to the world. Old traditions tottered on their thrones and received their death sentence, for the Greatest stooped to become the lowest. And in this act of condescension, there was grace, the shinning glory of the mercy of God. All through the life of Jesus can be felt the throbbing pulsethe Highest has stooped to serve; the Purest of all hass tooped as a servant to bear the sins of the vile and rebellious Messiah-Servant.

We noted that from the beginning, lying has always been against Gods will. Whether one looks to the Old or New Testament,l ying has always been wrong. We may live in a time when some people excuse lying for a variety of reasons, but God has nevere xcused lying for any reason. Where did lying originate? Well, the first recorded lie took place in the garden of Eden. In Genesis 2: 16-17,G od commanded the man, From any tree of the garden y ou may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall note at, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely d ie. However, in Genesis 3:4, the serpent (Satan the woman just the opposite. He said, You surely will not die! And, the rest is history.A dam and Eve fell for the lie, ate of the forbidden fruit, a nd were cast out of a paradise on earth because of their sin. J esus compared a group of people to Satan in John 8:44. H e said, You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is not ruth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from h is own nature for he is a liar and the father of lies. On the other hand, Paulw rote in Titus 1:2 that God cannot lie. So, when we l ie, we are following in the footsteps of Satan, not God. Because Satan represents the very essence of evil, he has always been at us to turna way from God and toward him. But, if we want to p lease God, we will seek the truth that comes only from Him and obey that truth. In 1J ohn 2: 4-5, we read, The one who says, I have come t o know Him,and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of Godh as truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him. Therefore, we must do more than just tell the truth to be pleasing to God.W e must also live that truth. Finally, what are the consequences of lying? They are the same as for any sin. Revelation 21: 8 reads, Butf or the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burnsw ith fire and brimstone, which is the second death. T he choice is ours: Live the truth and live with God, or live a lie and live withS atan. When you get right down to it, it is not much of a choice, is it? So, choose well now and live with God forever.

C M Y K DearAbby: I am a 30year-old transgender woman who has just started her journey. Feeling more comfortable in my skin, I have been going to some local hangouts with some friends from work and meeting straight men. My question is, when is it appropriate to disclose that I am a preoperative trans woman? I have tried online dating on trans-friendly websites, as well as visited the local transgender bar, but those men tend only to be looking for sex, and I am looking for more than that. I would love your advice on the matter. Starting My Journey DearStarting: For your safety, it is important that you disclose your status early, before there is any sex involved. If you dont, the straight man could react violently. At this point, it would be a good idea to contact PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) because it can put you in touch with resources to help you through your journey. The largest increase in new individuals reaching out to PFLAG is now among people with trans issues and this includes both trans individuals and their family members. It is critically important to seek out a culturally competent therapist to help you with specific issues. To find referrals and a local chapter, visit pflag.org. DearAbby: My husband is in Afghanistan for a year. When he returns, I want to ask him to get tested for STDs before we have sex. I do not have any specific reason to think he would be having sex with someone while deployed, but lets face it. Hes a man, and a year is a long time to abstain when there are females present. How do I approach the subject in the most effective way? I know that when I do, he will be mad, but its not the first time that STDs have been a problem in our relationship. Help! Thinking Of My Health DearThinking Of Your Health: One would think that a man who loves his wife would want to be absolutely positive that he wouldt give her a sexually transmitted infection. However, because your husband has given you one before, it is perfectly logical that you tell him it is the reason you want him to be tested before resuming your marital relationship. DearAbby: Im a single 32-year-old who lives across the country from my family.I have two sets of grandparents who both send me birthday and holiday cards containing checks. The problem is, I earn close to six figures, which is far more than my grandparentsincome in retirement, and I have only myself to support. I typically shred their checks when I receive them. Should I continue to do this, or should I tell them that as much as I appreciate the sentiment, a simple card would be fine? Secretly Shredding in Seattle DearS.S. in S.: When a check isnt cashed, it is obvious to the check writer, and it can cause problems in balancing the person's checkbook. I think your solution to tell them you no longer need the checks is a good one. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, July 12, 2013Page B9 Solution, B8 Diversions/Puzzles Review: Pacific Rimis skillful and very noisy B y JOCELYN NOVECK APNational Writer Its one of the saving graces of Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toros newm ega-budget monsters vs. robots extravaganza, that at a key juncture, it knows how to make fun of itself. This welcome bit of comic relief amid all the crunching,s mashing and groaning in 3D comes just as the good g uys that would be the robots, or rather the humans operating the 25-storym achines built to save humanity have hit a snag. T hese massive, digitally controlled contraptions suddenly all fail at once. But then eureka! someone points out that oner usty old robot is analog. And so, in a movie that has s pent some $200 million to boast the very best in stateof-the-art tradecraft, an ana-l og machine saves the day, at least temporarily. Ha! Holy r etro technology. Its too bad that del Toros film, a throwback to theJ apanese Kaiju monster films made famous by Godzilla, doesnt have m any more such deft moments. T hough its made by an obviously gifted director and will likely please devotees of the genre, it ultimately feels very short on character andl ong on noise, noise, noise. Did we mention the crunching, smashing and groaning? Happily, the plot is not convoluted (the script is by Travis Beacham and delT oro) and theres at least one really cool concept, called The Drift. No, this doesnt involve land formations. Its the mind-melding that occurs between the twop ilots of each Jaeger thats what they call the m ega-robots that humans have built to fight the monsters rising from the sea.S ubjected to a pre-flight neural handshake, the p ilots are suddenly sharing brains, the better to command their robot. T his leads to amusing dialogue, such as: You know what Im thinking? Beat. Im in your brain! Thats meant to be funny, but a l ater remark seems inadvertently so, when the hero balks at going back to battle: I cant have anyone in my head again! T he real action begins some seven years into the Kaiju offensive (and circa 2020.) The Jaeger program, once successful, is failing. Global defense authorities decide to drop it and go for ag iant coastal wall. Didnt they see World War Z? A sk Brad Pitt: Walls dont keep out zombies, and they wont keep Kaiju out, either.I s back to the Jaegers. Enter jaded former pilot Raleigh Becket (a handsome but bland Charlie Hunnam). Raleigh lost his co-pilot and brother in a Jaeger fight, and is in no mind to share his, er,m ind again. But humanitys at stake. H is new co-pilot is a young Japanese woman named Mako (Rinko Kikuchi) with a serious beefa gainst the Kaiju. Showy supporting parts are played b y Idris Elba as the impressively named commander Stacker Pentecost; CharlieD ay as a manic, nerdy scientist (but not as funny as he c ould be); and Ron Perlman as a shadowy Kaiju-parts dealer. I t takes a good hour for the real battle to get going. Youre glad when it does, b ut mostly, you wish the mind-melding concept had b een mined more fully, especially since the scenes inside peoples minds show, too briefly, another, subtler side of del Toros talents. Onea rresting flashback to Makos youth almost seems to come from a different movie like the directors powerful 2006 Pans Labyrinth. Too bad del Toro doesnt s hare a bit more of that terrific side of his moviemaki ng mind with us here. Mega-budget Pacific Rim is skillful and very noisy K erry Hayes/Warner Bros.

Its important to add routine inspections of often overlooked areas and regular maintenance to your list of tasks. Every home can have unhealthy, harmful, or even hazardous areas, said Mike Holmes, renowned contractor on HGTVand healthy home expert. Its important to check them out, especially during regular maintenance. Addressing these hidden hazardshelps create a healthy home and keeps your family safe. Holmes recommends following his SAFETY checklist to ensure your home is safer and healthier for your family. SSeekoutleadinthehome. If your home was built before 1978, it could contain lead. Your family could be exposed to it through the air, drinking water, contaminated soil, deteriorating paint and dust in and around the house. If you disturb any material that contains lead, tiny lead particles could become airborne at home. Talk to a professional to test the entire house, and take the necessary steps to ensure your familys safety. AAddressindoorairqualityandchangeyour airfilter. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollution levels can be 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor levels sometimes even 100 times higher. Your lungs shouldnt be cleaning the air inside your home. Use an electrostatically charged Filtrete Brand air filter to help capture odors and airborne particles, such as mold spores, dust mite debris, bacteria and viruses.

For months, officials in Sanford and South Florida have been working with pastors, youth coaches, community activists and summer camp counselors to stress a non-violent approach if Zimmerman walks free. At the same time, police say they have quietly been making plans for dealing with any potential emotional flare-ups that could quickly turn into storefront-smashing, car-burning riots.

Most events will take place in Stuart Park, but activities will be in different places including Devane Park and along the streets. The festival has traditionally been in August, but according to Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce President Eileen May, the date was moved forward in the hope of avoiding the height of hurricane season. (This was) not a decision that we took lightly, she said. This is a big deal for the vendors. Last year they lost all of Sunday because of the hurricane that was swirling around out there. There will be plenty to do during the Caladium Festival. There will be more than 100 vendors selling unique specialty items along the side streets. Food booths will provide satisfying fare for a fee.

Dozens of teams take on the 750-foot, dirt oval on the far west end of the Avon Park Airport in several different classes to see who has the fastest mower and the keenest driving skills. To be eligible, contestants take the blades off their mowers, then soup them up under various guidelines to qualify for the different divisions. Its the taking the blades off part that now has officials of the Florida Lawnracing Association in a bit of a quandary. They are looking for a business that wants to take on the task of keeping the facility mowed and edged. The group is looking to strike a deal, offering signage and other amenities during the season as an enticement to finding an official groundskeeper for the nationally-known track. We really can offer them alot, said FLAVice President Wes Pyburn. We have a ton of local people who come to the races each month and I can tell you from experience that race fans are some of the most loyal fans anywhere. They support the businesses that support racing. The mowing, edging and spraying currently is handled by FLAmembers who come out periodically and keep the place trimmed, then make certain it is ready before their monthly competitions. Really, the grass does not grow that bad out there, Pyburn said. He noted the members take care ofthe acre-plus facility about once every other week during the summer and about once a month during the regular race season. The 2013-2014 season will get back under way Sept. 7 with a full slate of classes and racing action. Lawnmower racing began at the Avon Mower-Plex better than a decade ago, when enthusiasts got together and cleared an area which at one time had been a rodeo arena but had become a dump. A track was constructed and racing has continued ever since. It is the first for-purpose lawnmower racing facility in the United States and has hosted several national events Businesses interested in working with the FLAcan get in touch with Pyburn at (863) 581-6381. Courtesy photo Mowers are lined up awaiting the start of a race at the Avon Park Mowerplex. The facility is looking for a company to mow the grass at the raceway.

The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature wanted the state high court to block a challenge to last years new map for state Senate districts. But a divided high court ruled Thursday that blocking the lawsuit would undermine the will of voters who adopted new standards for redistricting in 2010. Justices split 5-2 on the decision. The Supreme Court last year initially rejected the Senate map but then approved a revised version during a 30-day review period. Legislative lawyers argued that the courts approval precluded any future lawsuits. But Thursdays ruling states that the initial review was limited and did not include any facts or evidence. Supreme Court wont stop legal challenge of new legislative districts

Sold as a convenience for employees and a m oney-saver for employers, payroll cards are unfairly eating into workerswages. W ith the incentives of major banks and employers aligned, w orkers need federal and state regulators to step in and end the gouging. Payroll cards are like debit cards and can be used to r eceive cash at ATM machines or to make purc hases. Typically, lowerwage hourly workers are the ones who receive their pay t his way, with Taco Bell and Walmart among the dozens o f large employers that offer them, according to an investigation by the New York T imes. Nearly 4 million households have someone paid through these prepaid cards, according to a 2011 survey by the Federal D eposit Insurance Corp. Employers like them because they can save thousands of dollars a year over the cost of producing paper payc hecks. The cards offer conveni ence, and for some employees without a bank account, t hey can be cheaper to use than check-cashing services. But the cards are also another way to extract money from vulnerable workers. Fees are imposed for virtually every transaction, including making a cash withdrawal, making a purchase or checking a balance. Monthly fees can add up to $40 or $50, taking so much out of a paycheck that an employee may fall below the minimum wage. Employees say there is almost no way to avoid paying to access their money. Some employees who are given the option to be paid in more traditional ways, through a paycheck or direct deposit, complain that the choice is illusory since they are automatically enrolled in the payroll card system... Prepaid cards are a growing area of the financial sector because these products have largely escaped the new rules and regulations protecting financial consumers, and banks are looking to recoup the millions of dollars lost as a result of the new restrictions. For instance, there is a $7 inactivity fee for infrequent use on payroll cards used by more than two dozen major retailers. The Federal Reserve has barred inactivity fees on credit and debit cards. Employers who want to utilize this system for payroll should bear the cost for employees. The situation now, where workers have to pay to get paid, is unacceptable. An editorial from The Tampa Bay Times. Low-wage workers getting gouged New York Citys politics has now gotten more titillating. First came news that Anthony Weiner, the Democrat whose crotchshot sexting to a woman he never met led to his resignation from Congress, was running for mayor. Now comes the news that former New York Gov. Elliot Spitzer, who resigned due to his involvement in a prostitution scandal, is running for city Comptroller. New Yorker satirist Andy Borowitz couldnt resist doing a fake news story about former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who a Milan court sentenced to seven years after finding him guilty of paying for sex with an underage prostitute and abusing his office, with the headline: BERLUSCONI MULLS NEW YORK CITYRACE. Hey, the way things are going, it could happen. Long gone are the days when then-New York Gov. Nelson Rockefellers 1962 divorce from his wife and his remarriage shocked many, lost him droves of women-voter support and destroyed his early 1963 status as the front-runner for the 1964 Republican nomination. By the late 90s it was clear there had been a shift in American society and culture: despite the Monica Lewinsky scandal and impeachment. Bill Clinton rose in the polls, left office with the highest end-term rating (68 percent) of any President, and remains one of the countrys most popular political figures. Sex scandals are now becoming ongoing reality shows: the set up (the good career), the fall (the tearful apology), the short-term consequences (resignation) and the resurrection (running for office again). Much of the media was wrong earlier this year in predicting South Carolinas voters would tell Mark Sanford to take a hike when he ran for a House seat in a special election. Sanford resigned as Governor when it turned out that when he was missing for six days in 2009 he wasnt hiking on the Appalachian Trail as he said, but visiting his girl friend in Argentina. Critics and some in the media considered Sanford shameless in the way he framed his affair and trumpeted his happy life with his new wife, his Argentinean soul mate. Endemol Productions couldnt produce as compelling a reality show and The Mark Sanford Show got boffo ratings (he won). Writes The Daily Beasts Political Director John Avlon: The sad fact is that in our celebritydriven society, sex scandals guarantee that a politician will rise above the humdrum of campaigns full of earnest legislators. The press is eager to cover the soap opera, and the public seems eager to engage in the real-life telenovela. Now the clichd old rule of Hollywood theres no such thing as bad press seems to apply to public service. What could possibly go wrong? The question is: so where does it end? Times Mark Halperin on MSNBCs Morning Joe asked Spitzer: Are there any things people in elective office, a high office like governor of New York, could do, that involved law breaking, lying to the public, that you would consider as a voter disqualifying? Or nothings disqualifying if a person comes back and says look at what Ive done for the last five years, look at my great ideas? Spitzer basically replied that hell leave that up for the public to decide. And many think he can win. Meanwhile, polls suggest Weiner is catching on and you just KNOWthe New York tabloid headline youll see if he does: Weiner Rises Again. WeinerSpitzer wins would be a sign of how impotent 20th century standards have become in todays seemingly shrugging, reality-showloving 21st century world.

Amendment IV, U.S. Constitution When I started kindergarten in the fall of 1953, the administration of public schools was mostly a local matter. Other than a record of my birth five years earlier, little had probably been recorded about me at the state or federal level. In 1964, when I was a sophomore in high school, several key events put me on the state and federal radar screen. Like all sixteen-year-olds, I got my drivers license, which was followed in short order by the purchase of my first car, which, of course, also had to be registered with the state. That year I also secured my first paying job. The federal government immediately issued me a card with my very own nine-digit number on it. I was assured that it was not for identification purposes. It even said so right on the card. Soon, another branch of the government, the Internal Revenue Service, wanted to know exactly how much money I was making. Two years later, I graduated from high school and headed off to college, with a federally guaranteed student loan and a Selective Service draft deferment. Two more files with my name on them. In 1968, I decided to work for a semester and try to figure out what I really wanted to do with the rest of my life. Soon, Uncle Sam decided to help me with the decision. The letter stated that I had until April 3, 1969, to choose a branch of the U.S. Armed Forces or the choice would be made for me. I chose the Air Force, thereby creating another four-year federal file on myself. During that time, my wife and I were married. Another file, at all levels. Honorably discharged in 1973, I returned to college on the G.I. Bill. Regular checks and another file, this time with the Veterans Administration. Then came kids, car payments and a mortgage, all recorded in the annals of government at every level. When we declared our children on our first itemized income tax return, we were required to accept a nine-digit number for each of them as well. As our finances became more sophisticated, we had to document all of our expenses for the IRS. The amount we give to charity is known. So is the kind of car I drove for business last year and how many miles I put on it. Of course, that was no secret, since it had to be licensed to be legal. The government knows at least as much about my property as I do. They have all the information on my home, including its value, which they determine in order to charge me a fee called property taxes for the privilege of living there. They know my race, gender, age, health problems, where I was born, where I live now, and, unfortunately, how many guns I own. They know which church I attend, what candidates I support and how many credit cards I carry. Several years ago, when Bill Clinton was president and I was a state leader in the Christian Coalition, I suspect that an FBI file with my name on it was among those illegally stored on White House computers. They even know which library books Im reading. I must deal with the reality that even my cell phone records, email messages and Internet searches are subject to scrutiny by these people. After all the privacy I have forfeited in the last 60 years, you wouldnt think that it would bother me anymore, would you? Well, it does.

C M Y K Associated PressATLANTA Health officials say the homicide rate for older children and young adults has hit its lowest point in at least three decades. In 2010, the homicide rate for victims ages 10 to 24 was down more than half compared to 1993. That was during an explosion in crime tied to crack cocaine. The government report released Thursday echoes earlier findings about a national decline in murders and other crimes in the last two decades. Youths account for about a third of homicide victims. Researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention went back to 1981 and found youth homicide rate declines across the board in males, females, whites, blacks and Hispanics.

Walter T. Richardson, a longtime pastor and chairman of Miami-Dade Countys Community Relations Board, which has been holding town hallstyle meetings about the case. Weve already lost one soul and we dont want to lose any more. Martin, from the suburb of Miami Gardens, was 17 when he died. He was in Sanford visiting his father and fathers fiancee when Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer, fatally shot him during a physical confrontation in a gated community in February 2012. Martins supporters portrayed the shooting as racially motivated, while Zimmerman, who identifies himself as Hispanic, claimed self-defense. Charged with seconddegree murder, Zimmerman is pleading not guilty at the trial unfolding in a Sanford courthouse. After police initially refused to arrest Zimmerman, there were many large but peaceful protests in both Sanford and the Miami area as well as in New York and other cities. Those demonstrations included a mass walkout at nearly three dozen South Florida high schools. Many in Sanford say they doubt the trials outcome would spark local residents to take to the streets. The main focus was to get Zimmerman arrested and have him tried before a jury of his peers in a court of law, said Clayton Turner Jr., president of the Seminole County branch of the NAACP. That was the main issue, not how we felt about whether hes innocent or guilty. Not everyone is so certain. Shantree Hall, 37, a lifelong Sanford resident who is black, said a Zimmerman acquittal might anger many in the African-American community who already feel they are less likely to obtain justice. The protests that led to Zimmermans arrest taught many people that was the only way to get things done, she added. With Trayvon, the noise was too loud for them. Thats why they couldnt sweep it under the rug, she said. Recent Miami-area high school graduate Jude Bruno, 18, said he doesnt sense from friends and peers that there is a powder keg in South Florida waiting to explode should Zimmerman be found innocent. Bruno is chairman of the Miami-Dade County Youth Commission, which has been working with local youth groups to stress a peaceful reaction. We want to be the example to the world because the whole world is watching us, Bruno said. Bruno spoke after a Community Relations Board meeting this week that drew several hundred people to a Miami Gardens library auditorium, some of them wearing Justice for Trayvon T-shirts. Continued from A1 budget. It means big c hanges for people. We have to shrink government. This is partly because all allocations for one year are d ecided on the numbers from the preceding year, and Highlands County still lags behind the countrys recovery and is still dealing w ith the recession and lower property values. Elwell said revenues for 2013-2014 are $1.55 million lower, and expenses $1.95 million higher than 2 012-2013 a gap of $3.5 million. Why are expenses higher? Retirement contributions have higher premiu ms, health insurance is going up, the constitutional o fficers have gone five years without cost of living increases and the cost of fuel continues to fluctuate radically, Elwell said. He presented figures to give the audience an idea of h ow things have changed. For example, in the boom period of 2005-08 the count y had plenty of revenue, he said. At the peak in 2008, w ith the millage rate at 7.1 percent, the county took in slightly more than $42 mill ion, on property valued at more than $6 billion. In 2013, on the other h and, property values had dropped to about $4 billion. W ith the millage remaining at 7.1 percent, tax revenues are predicted to be about $31 million, slightly less than the $32 million coll ected in 2012. Elwell said the bulk of the countys revenue (35 percent) goes to public safety, while 28 percent goes to transportation, 14 percent goes to general g overnment and 11 percent to the physical environment. The balance of allocations, each only 2 percent or less of the budget, go to human services, culture and recreation, economic environment, financing uses and court-related expenses. Elwell was asked if the commission could cut the budgets of constitutional officers (the sheriff, the clerk of courts, the elections supervisor, the property appraiser and the tax collector), especially because the sheriff has asked for an additional $1 million this year. The commission cannot call specific cuts in constitutionals, he said. We do not have a line-byline veto power. He also explained that the tax collectors office was funded through fees, not through the countys general fund. Elwell was asked if the sheriff was asking for more money because of taking over law enforcement in Avon Park. Elwell said no, Avon Park pays for its own services. There is no fiscal impact on the county. The commissioner said volunteers being used to save money is a great idea, but it does have drawbacks. Volunteers are not as available as employees. For example, he said two volunteers at the Animal Control shelter have gone north for the summer and citizens have been very slow to volunteer for county and municipal advisory boards, many of which have more than one opening. Elwell was asked if raising the homestead exception has hurt revenue collection. He said no. What are we doing to attract businesses to Highlands County? he was asked. It will be slow growth, Elwell replied. We dont have the workers for a big industry; look for smaller businesses. He added the county had to improve its technical infrastructure. Look for businesses dealing with distribution, administration and light manufacturing. The county commission will begin budget discussions at the next morning commission on Tuesday. Continued from A1 alligators wiggle out of the eggs. For guests that want a hands-on experience, ask for the Hatch and Hold package. This package allows you to actually hold an egg and let the baby alligator hatch in your hands. Depending on how many eggs are hatching that particular day, 20-30 eggs will be offered on a first come first served basis. Other activities for kids include building their own gator tooth necklace and catching their own baby gators at the Baby Gator Round Up Pond. This isnt a drive through instant experience, but remember the facility is totally dependent on Mother Nature and birthing babies takes time. V isitors to Gatorama will also be able to learn about the history of the American alligator and how the populations have been protected through one of the most truly successful, sustainableuse management programs ever implemented. American alligators have been off the endangered species list since 1987 and populations are still growing.Alligator farming is an important part of the program.

C M Y K By JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Being a member of the Florida Army National Guard for the past 16 years and currently a technician for the Florida Army National Guard and is a Member of 3116 Forward Support Company HIMARS located in Lake Wales, Sergeant First Class Eltoro Lewis knows the commitment necessary to serve our country. Last year he found out that serving the community as Avon Parks Youth Football and Cheer (APYFC) President was just as demanding. Lewis has been part of the Mid-Florida Football and Cheer Conference (MFFCC) since 2009 and has been part of all three Mitey Mite championship teams. When then president of the APYFC, Richard Dick, decided to step down after the 2011 season, Lewis stepped up into the leadership role. Richard (Dick) did a great job in getting the organization to where it needed to be. Said Lewis, When I came in, I was just trying to maintain what they built and get the organization to grow from there. In his first year, Lewis was instrumental in getting the clubhouse rebuilt. Lewis found out later that it was in such disrepair that it was actually slated to demolition a few years ago. Lewis went to the city, which in turn went to the county and got approved for a grant to fix the clubhouse, both inside and out, at no cost to the football league. We have a new roof, working toilets, working urinals, storage space for the equipment, said Lewis as he gave a quick tour of the facility, and an office to actually work out of. Some of the work the contractors did without even charging us. Lewis noted that that roof was contracted to be silver, but Marleys roofing upgraded, at no cost, to a green roof so it would match the surrounding buildings. The soffett was installed by Bobby Lee Aluminum. These businesses recognized what the organization stood for and was willing to go the extra mile to help said Lewis. He was especially proud of two trophy cases that were built and donated by the building contractor, Watts Construction from Haines City. We had no place to put everything, said Lewis, they were just sitting around all over the place. Watts Construction built these two cases so we could store and display our trophies. I cant say enough for what they did. Now that parents are seeing improvements in the facilities questions are being asked when will the Memorial Field Stadium get the much needed repairs done such as the press box needs to be restabilize which the coaches keep bringing to my attention, the stadium needs to be pressure washed and painted are just some of the current issues said Lewis. Though Lewis is proud of what they accomplished in his first year, he notes By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentIf you are a regular attendant of Sebring High School football games, you are sure to know the name Zac Morris or, as he is often called by classmates, ZacMo. A2011 graduate, Morris made the journey over to Melbourne to attend Florida Institute of Technology pursuing a degree in Business Administration. Now preparing for his j unior year, he will also be preparing for his first offic ial game as a college athlete. is our inaugural season, Morris explained, So we have not yet had any official games. This p ast year we did have four official intra-squad scrimm ages in front of the community. In the upcoming season, Morris will be a part of an NCAADivision II ranked team in the Gulf South Conference. That is not to say that the last two years have gone to the wayside, however. Scrimmage games persisted in order to continually build up the team. For Morris, this included one cherished memory of a t riple-overtime win in the third official scrimmage of the season. The fun part was, due to team injuries, I even had the chance to play three series as linebacker, which reminded me of my Sebring High School days. In his senior season as a Streak, Morris set a singleseason record for most tackles with a total of 140 as well as having one interception that was returned for a touchdown. This pace was set even in his previous year, when he recorded 99 tackles, five forced fumbles, five fumbles recovered and one safety as a junior. Named his teams defensive MVPtwice and defensive MVPof Highlands County his junior year, Morris always proved to be a force to be reckoned with. As he has grown with his new Florida Tech team, so have his skills as a free safety. The most improved aspect of my game would be my mental aspectjust the amount of knowledge learned from the coaching staff, as well as constant film studies has improved my game. With this improvement came a need for adjustment and transition, naturally, as he began his first years of college. The transition to collegiate football was tough and fast. Literally, he shared. Everything speeds up: from the pace of practice, the athletes you are playing against, and even inside the classroom. The change comes fast, but to be in the position to continue doing what I love is well worth it. When asked how he is able to manage his time on and off the field, Morris summed it up in one word: focus. Its all about focus. I attended college to receive an education to provide myself a future. That has helped me set my prioriW ell, Ive been officially retired for two months, and although retirement provides unlimited opportunities to relax, do a little reading, work around the house and yard and most importantly go fishing whenever I want, my dream has always been to own a fishing tackle store. Kind of a Man-Cave sort of thing. Back in December, 2004, I opened REDS Fishing Tackle in Avon Park. It was a pretty big store and for the first few months we were open, we did relatively well. But by mid-April, business began to fall off and by June, we were lucky to have more than an occasional shopper stop by. I named the store for my father, a big burley redhead who loved fishing and hunting, and always said hed love to own a fishing tackle store when he retired. He died at the age of 54 and never had that opportunity. We closed REDS in early 2006, and it was one of the biggest disappointments in my life. In hindsight, I think it was just too big and with the over-stocked inventory I tried to carry, daily sales just couldnt support the overhead. So Ive decided to try again, on a much smaller scale. REDS II, located at 3603 Sebring Parkway, in Sebring, Florida will open in August, 2013. Unlike the original REDS, Im not planning a big grand opening such as we had back in January 2005, no fan-fare, well just open the doors to the public. REDS II is relatively small, 600 square feet, and will likely be crammed, floor to ceiling with all the latest and greatest fishing tackle that fishing tackle stores typically carry. Walking distance from Lake Jackson will be a plus, and our plan is to carry plenty of live bait. I hired a couple of guys to do the buildout for me and they did a great job. Bob Mysliwy, owner of RM Home Repairs, LLC, (863-840-0991) along with Richard Neely have done work for me in the past, replacing sinks, repairing toilets, painting and building my fishing dock and you couldnt find a harder working couple of guys who are also avid bass fishermen. I have to leave them alon e to get any work done though, since they both love to swap fishinstories. I highly recommend them. Now that I have the sign up on the store, and the built out is complete, I wanted to mention it in my column since a few folks have asked me when wed be opening. Right now, my plan is to open sometime in August, but it will depend on when I get my orders filled, priced and up on the pegboard. By the way, I dont really plan on working there as much as just hanging out. My daughter Amy will likely manage the store and Ill be in and out between fishing trips. Once we firm up an opening date, Ill let everyone know in my column. I hope youll stop by and do a little shopping.FISHIN GALS I got an email from Debra Doud, a Cardiologist at Florida Hospital last week about fishing on the 4th of July. You may recall from one of my previous columns, I took Debra on a trip to Lake Istokpoga a few months ago and we caught a dozen bass flippinthe reeds. Apatient of hers had shown her a square billed crankbait that he swore was the hottest lure ever made and she was anxious to give it a try. I typically dont fish on holidays, particularly the 4th of July, since jet skiers, water skiers, tubers and the like tend to take over the water and the boat ramps can be a mess. But she wanted to go early so we agreed to meet at 6 a.m. on the 4th. Right on time, Debra brought a friend of hers, Kristina Jones, a Sebring resident and we dropped the boat in Lake Jackson a few minutes after 6, just as the sun was starting to rise. The wind was blowing SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, July 12, 2013 Page B3 Courtesy photo Debra Doud, left, and Kristina Jones joined Don for an early morning fishing trip on the 4th of July.

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.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunTALLAHASSEE The State of Florida will be well represented at the 2013 National Senior Games in Cleveland, Ohio in July as 568 Florida Senior Athletes have registered to compete in the 19 sports of the Games. Of the more than 500 athletes, seven are from Sebring. The Florida athletes traveling to Cleveland qualified for the National Senior Games at the 2012 Florida International Senior Games and State Championships last December in Polk County. The 2013 National Senior Games will be contested from July 21 through August 1 with more than 10,000 athletes, age 50 and over, competing in 19 sports. Sebring athletes competing in the 2013 National Senior Games will be Anna Smith in Archery and Track and Field, Lillian Webb in Bowling and Track and Field, Gail Brown in Golf and Pickleball, Jerry McClain in Golf, James Maynard in Pickleball, Diane Reynolds in Pickleball, and Tom Stadler in Pickleball as well. Notable accomplishments of the Sebring athletes competing include, 98-year old Sebring resident Lillian Webb, competing in bowling and track and field. Webb, the 2004 Florida Senior Games State Championships Female Athlete of the Year, is the womens singles bowling record holder in the 90-94 and 95-99 age group and holds 12 track and field records in the 985-89, 90-94 and 95-99 age groups. Besides Webb, two other Sebring athletes will compete in two sports. Gail Brown will compete in golf and pickleball in the 75-79 age group. She won a gold medal in golf at the 2012 Games with a score of 85 and won a womens doubles pickleball gold medal. Anna Smith will be in archery and track and field events in the 7074 age group. Once again, the state of Florida is among the top five traveling contingents to the biennial Games. Since 2001, over 3,000 Florida athletes have travelled to the National Senior Games, which is held in odd numbered years. The most Florida athletes to travel to the National Senior Games came in 2007 when 645 athletes represented the Sunshine State in Louisville, Ky. Among the most popular sports for the Florida contingent is softball with 86 athletes competing, track and field has 70 Florida participants and tennis will have 53 Floridians on the courts. The 568 athletes in Cleveland will have a tough act to follow. At the 2011 National Senior Games, in Houston, Texas, the Florida contingent of 496 senior athletes collected 243 overall medals (101 gold, 80 silver and 62 bronze), the second highest total of all states, behind only the host state of Texas. In six National Senior Games events between 2001 and 2011, Florida athletes won 1,119 medals. Follow the Florida athletes during the 2013 National Senior Games at www.flasports.com. The 2013 Florida International Senior Games and State Championships, presented annually by the Florida Sports Foundation, will be held December 7-15 in Lee County and eight local qualifying events will be held between lateSeptember and November. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, July 12, 2013Page B3 E.O.

The Mens League played a round on Wednesday, July 3.

Between the balance of school and practice there isnt much time for anything else and thats the key to staying on top of them both. If it is not school-related its football-related and vice versa. Ive had to learn to m anage time wisely and make sure nothing is wasted. Of course, Melbournes prime location does offer some benefits. I enjoy Florida Tech and living in the Melbourne area. The location is good and living ten minutes from the beach helps relieve the stresses of college. Also, to be able to play in front of my family and loved ones makes it an enjoyable experience. His attitude towards his schoolwork reflects as he offers some words of wisdom to younger athletes as well. Stay focused on your grades, he advised. Athletics can only get you so far, but academics can get you past that. Always go above and beyond what people ask and expect of you. Morris is a key example of leadership on and off of the field, and this is one of the aspects he is working on improving for the big season. As a potential starter on new team, I find myself in a position to be able to lead, not only by example, but vocally. I feel this is one area I must improve to help the team. He explained that vocal leadership includes up making sure players are playing at full potential, being prepared to address and work with those who are not, as well as getting people together to do the right things. Morris is grateful for his opportunities as a Florida Tech Panther. My favorite thing about being a college athlete at Florida Tech is the ability to receive a quality degree while doing something I love. It provides me a sense of solitude, escape, and has blessed me with a group of friends for a lifetime. The life a college athlete is hard. Aches, bruises, extreme time-management tests, late nights, early mornings, naps and unparalleled excitement all are included in my life as a college athlete. Morris has some pretty great fans he is thankful for as well-fans he considers his greatest support group and that he credits for his success. My mom, for a friendship only a mother could bear. My dad for his efforts to provide and support me no matter what. My older brother who is my first coach, my biggest fan, and my foundation of football. My sister, for the smiles when I am having a rough day, my little brother who provides me the opportunity to be a role model for someone, and my granny for her prayers and constant reminder to have faith. Without my family, I wouldnt be the position I am today. Morris also wanted to recognize Sebring High School coach LaVaar Scott. His efforts during my days as a Blue Streak have molded me in becoming a successful in college athlete. The discipline, dedication and perseverance he not only displayed but developed in me have allowed me to succeed at Florida Tech. He is a true role model for the youth of Highlands County. Now, with the strong and ongoing support of him family, the experiences he had as a Blue Streak, and the preparations he has taken as a Panther Morris is looking with hopeful blue eyes into this first season for Florida Tech. Next year is when it all begins. Next year will be our first ever season at Florida Tech and will begin September 7 at 7 p.m. against Stetson. Morris shared that the conference his team will be playing in will put them against National Division II Champion Valdosta State. I am looking forward to everything. The competition, the challenge, and the reward of playing collegiate football have me eager to return. Continued from B1 Morris anxious for Panther debut right into the ramp, and for considering how early it was, I knew it would be a tough day fighting the wind. The gals didnt seem to mind the rough water as they tossed crankbaits and worms in and around the underwater structure all morning. Locating the brushpiles and sunken boats was the easy part. Trying to keep the boat positioned over or near the structure was the challenge. Southwest winds of 1015 mph made it near impossible to hold a position in the vast openness of Lake Jackson. At one point, Debra hooked two bass on two casts, only to see them perform their acrobatic jumps and spit the hook. It was a tough day on the water as we motored in when I suggested to Debra that she might want to drive the boat. Although hestitant at first to take the wheel, she had the Ranger running full bore and crashing into the waves in a matter of minutes. I think she was surprised at how fast a bass boat can run.LAKE JACKSON I had the opportunity to fish again with Paul T ardiff on Lake Jackson last Tuesday. He truly knows that lake and although we didnt kill em, we did manage to catch 7 bass in water between 12 and 22 feet deep. Paul is an incredible fisherman, and hes armed himself with equipment that assists him like a remote controlled electric motor that he can set to keep him over a structure, as well as a side reading depthfinder. Ive never fished Lake Jackson that much, always preferring to fish lakes like Istokpoga, Okeechobee and Walk-inWater that offers heavy vegetation and lots of opportunities for flippin and topwater. Like most fishermen, deep water structure fishing is not my strong suit. But its definitely Pauls. Fishermen can be a strange lot. Ive fished tournaments with guys that actually tried to hide their baits from me. And most fishermen would never share their hotspots. But Paul is more of a teacher, as well as a gentleman bass fishermen and his willingness to share his secret spots with me is an indication of what a truly great sportsman he is. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder. He lives in the Golf Hammock area of Sebring with his wife Lexie, and is the owner of a custom rod building company appropriately named The American Fisherman He will soon be opening REDS II, a fishing tackle store in Sebring. You can reach him at 863-273-4998 or by email at donorton13@gmail.com. V isit his American Fisherman Facebook page or his website at theamericanfisherman.com.

We are trying to build good young men and women and make them good citizens, said Lewis, Football is a way to get to the next level, help them get a better education, help them pay for college. Lewis noted that it unrealistic to think that everyone is going to make it to the NFL, but the kids to use this as a t ool. Playing sports helps to build character, stated Lewis, it helps teach kids how to get along. We all get mad in the heat of a situation, but you have to control your emotions and that is what we do with the kids. Lewis also believes that football is not the sole answer. We encourage the kids to play other sports, he continued. Whether it is baseball, basketball, soccer, track and field, badminton, as long as they participate in other sports. At the end of the day it gives you more opportunity and more to fall back on. Lewis remarked that by p laying different sports, you get to interact with different people and experience different coaching styles. Lewis highlighted three areas on why he believes the APYFC has been successful and feels that it builds a foundation of future successes of their kids. Discipline, respect, integrity; cited Lewis. With those three it is a recipe for success for our kids. It is fine they can come out here and be an all-star, but what are you doing in the classroom. Lewis noted that when school starts, they start checking on their grades and behavior reports from school. From flag, to include the cheerleaders, all the way to the seniors, they want to make sure they are doing what they are supposed to do both on and off the field. I am a firm believer in discipline. We do corrective behavior, if they bring in a bad report; we make them do extra runs and such as a consequence and to help build character. This is what you did wrong and this is the repercussions of that, at the same time, we are not going to let a child leave feeling defeated. We have to hold them responsible for their actions. We are not going to hold their hand, but we will lead the way for them. Both parent and kids alike have bought into the program. Several parents had cited that their child will make them go home before practice just to bring their school reports in, knowing that there are consequences if they do not bring them. Lewis is a firm believer that if a kid is in high school, they should be playing Junior Varsity or Varsity and not youth leagues. Alot of the kids want to stay in the youth leagues because that is what they know, said Lewis. We let them know that you have to step out of that comfort zone. You cant always choose your coaches, so you have to step up and try new things. Running the league is a lot of responsibility and time consuming. Lewis noted that there is always a need for volunteers, especially during home games. His wife, Tymica Lewis, is the concession manager and supports him to the upmost in all areas of the Organization. Jamie Beck handles registration for about 120 kids in the organization. From the start of a home game on Saturdays, Lewis and board members may spend up to 15 hours at the football field in getting the field and concession stand ready as well as cleaning afterwards. There are actually peop le out there that are willing to help the organization and like any other organization, we need volunteers, expressed Lewis. When the same people keep helping out, they get burned out. I just like working with people. When you treat people with dignity and respect, you get more out of it. Safety, especially concussions, has been in the forefront for the past several years and even though Lewis has several items on his agenda, this is on the top of the list. The league will be holding fundraisers and seeking donations to refurbish or replace older helmets, shoulder pads and uniforms. All donations can be sent to APYFC PO Box 218 Avon Park FL33826. Because of the success of the league, they were invited and sponsored by Heads Up Football to attend a clinic on concussions, in which Vice President of the APYFC Dale LaFlamboy is going to represent the league. We do not just want success locally, concluded Lewis. We want success all over. Everyone knows who Avon Park is. We are a small city with a big name.

Sertoma hits Hammock News-Sun photo by LAUREN WELBORN W ill Redding watches his approach shot Thursday morning as the Sertoma Junior Tour took on Golf Hammock. See Sundays News-Sun for results. By MARK DIDTLER Associated PressTAMPA Alex R odriguez says hell have a day off from his injury rehab assignment Friday leaving him free for a possible meeting with Major League Baseball investigators. The New York Yankees third baseman is scheduled for the interview as part of baseballs probe of the closed anti-aging clinic Biogenesis, which is accused of distributing banned performanceenhancing drugs. Rodriguez has said he used PEDs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has denied using them since. Rodriguez says he has been told not to discuss the probe. While it may take a long time for MLB to sort out whether A-Rod and others will be suspended, his shortterm focus is on his comeback from hip surgery last winter. He was 1 for 3 with a linedrive RBI single for Class A Tampa on Wednesday, leaving him 2 for 15 during his rehabilitation assignment. It was his first RBI in six minor league games. I was happy with all three at-bats, Rodriguez said. Two balls right on the nose. This process, theres going to be some good days and some bad days, but it was a good day. Rodriguez grounded out against injured Toronto reliever Sergio Santos, who pitched one inning for the Dunedin Blue Jays. Rodriguez had an extensive defensive session on a back field after the game. Im trying to replicate my spring training routine as much as possible, Rodriguez said. Rodriguez said he will play third base on Thursday with Tampa. Rodriguez has been working the past couple days with Hall of Famer Reggie Jackson, who was part of a postgame batting practice session Tuesday and watched the game Wednesday from the dugout. Jackson is a Yankees adviser. Like he told us, he has 45 years of major league experience. He reminded us of that, Rodriguez said with a smile. Reggie is great. Reggie is fun to have around. He was very helpful after the game yesterday. Rodriguez has played a maximum of five innings at third base in any minor league game and he would not be surprised in the next few days to increase his time at third to seven innings. When asked whether could rejoin the Yankees at first as a DH, Rodriguez said manager Joe Girardi puts up the lineup and whatever he wants me to do Im going to do. Im just anxious to get up there and help the team win, Rodriguez said. A-Rod off Friday, free to meet with MLB I was happy with all three atbats.ALEXRODRIGUEZ

C M Y K DearPharmacist: I see a naturopathic doctor for chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia. She recommended coffee enemas. Suzy, Im a faithful reader, do you think this is safe? V.A., Seattle, Wash. Answer: Yes. Coffee enemas are used by holistic physicians for all sorts of conditions including cancer. Lots of people find help with constipation, fatigue and liver detoxification concerns. I know this sounds bizarre because you prefer to taste your coffee, not insert it rectally! Agreed. Y ou may be hearing about coffee enemas today, but they are nothing new and complications from coffee enemas are highly unusual. Hey, I just thought of a new franchise concept called Starbutts ... entrance in the rear. Seriously, coffee enemas may help relieve constipation, insomnia and cognitive problems; they may eliminate (or control) parasites, candida and other pathogens (without disrupting intestinal flora). Coffee enemas are frequently used in natural cancer protocols such as the Gerson Therapy (www.gerson.org). Coffee enemas were outlined as a treatment in the revered Merck Manual, a thick book that physicians used as their primary reference for decades, until the mid 1970s. Its not the enema as much as it is the coffee that helps. You are exposed to a barrage of toxic compounds in your life; you can easily become overloaded. Some of you cannot detoxify properly. Coffee enemas help you make glutathione, an antioxidant, and that sends poisons packing. More on that momentarily. Coffee enemas can be done at home inexpensively. You just need a comfortable spot on the floor of your bathroom, or bathtub. As the coffee is retained in your bowel, the fluid goes through your intestinal wall, through the portal vein to your liver. The stimulating effects and healing compounds of coffee jumpstart your liver and gallbladder. Bile flows. There are compounds in coffee like kahweol and cafestol that spark production of glutathione, and that is a strong cleansing compound in your body one that consumers pay good money for when they buy glutathione as a dietary supplement, or get IVinjections ofit. To make more glutathione naturally (by using acoffee enema) is awesome. These enemas may allow for relaxation, a better moo d, more energy, refreshing sleep and greater mental clarity. If you do too many enemas per week, you may experience electrolyte imba lances. Restoring your electrolytes is crucial, as coffee is a potent drug mugger of minerals. While the controversial cancer specialist Dr Max Gerson suggested up to six per day, I think that is way too much for the average person. Doing a coffee enema weekly (even daily for awhile) is probably OK for most, but always follow your doctors recommendation. The recipe for a coffee enema is different than the beverage. Ive written an extended version of this co lumn to teach you more about coffee enemas, the terrific health benefits, as well as the best coffee, enema equipment and safety concerns.

British sailors were known as Limeys because of the use of limes to prevent scurvy on long sea voyages. Jason and the A rgonautsmagical golden apples were probably oranges. Linus Pauling, the only winner of two unshared Nobel prizes ( Chemistry and Peace), thought that Vitamin C in high doses was the cure for everything from cancer to the common cold. He was ridiculed by many, but now 20 years after his death he may be getting the last laugh. More and more curative powers are being attributed to Vitamin C. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant fighting the free radicals that cause aging and some cancers. It is needed for the connective tissue that forms the framework of our bodies from eyes and skin to bones. Using data from the Framhingham study (a longterm health study that initially looked for links between lifestyle and heart disease); Vitamin C was linked to thicker knee cartilage and less arthritis. A new study shows that it helps with complex regional pain syndrome, a very painful disorder occurring after some hand and foot injuries or surgeries. Vitamin C deficits are associated with increased blood pressure, stroke and heart disease. There is a direct effect on the formation of plaques in the arteries and there appears to be a beneficial interaction with LDLcholesterols. Smoking decreases the levels of Vitamin C adding to its deleterious effects on lungs, hearts and healing in general. Vitamin C does not, unfortunately, cure the common cold, but there is evidence that people who take it regularly may have fewer colds of shorter duration. There definitely is a beneficial effect on the immune system. It helps with exercise induced asthma and may help with other allergies and asthma. There is good evidence that with Zinc and Vitamin E, Vitamin C helps against macular degeneration. Why arent we hearing about more studies? First there is no money to be made on a vitamin, no matter how wonderful. There is less money for research than there are projects. Vitamin C is difficult to study because it occurs in so many foods and is variably absorbed making it hard to standardize. What should you do? There is agreement that the best source is naturally occurring. So eat more vegetables such as spinach, broccoli, tomatoes and brussel sprouts. Citrus fruits so plentiful here in Florida are also good sources of Vitamin C. If you are concerned, you can take a supplement but probably do not need more than 500 to 1000mg a day. Vitamin C is a water-based vitamin so it is difficult to overdose, but excess will not be stored. So help our local economy and give your taste buds a treat with lots of fresh vegetable and citrus.

C M Y K Jesus said many startling things during His earthly ministry! However, what w as equally startling was how he challenged the worlds standard of greatness. When we think of Jesus, the Christ, we most often reflect o n the great sacrifice on the cross but lets turn our attent ion to the Messiah-Servant. Among paganism, heat henism, idolatry and superstition, a gentleman was one who never worked, yet Jesus said I am among you as the One who serves (Luke 2 2:27). It is interesting to note that His Father was not ashamed to direct the attention of man to His Son, the Christ as a servant. In fact, t his was in the Eternal plan: But made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a servant, and coming in the likeness of men (Philippians 2:7). Jesus, in setting an example to the Twelve, stated in Matthew 20: 27-28 And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave, just as the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many. The Messiah not only taught about being a slave, but manifested it in action such as recorded in John 13. Luke (22:24) records the attitude of the apostles in the upper room: But there was also rivalry among them, as to which of them should be considered the greatest. On the eve of His cruel death, fully conscious of His Deity and His glory, like a common Oriental slave, Christ girded Himself with a towel and washed the disciplesfeet. Jesus did not institute feet washing as an ordinance but used an age old custom to teach humility and servitude. Jesus set the model/example that is to be carried out in His spiritual body, the church. The sons of Zebedee (Matthew 20: 2025) did not get the message and their heirs today have also failed to see there is no hierarchy in the Lord's kingdomall are servants. This fact is also made very clear in Jesus' teaching to the Pharisees and scribes in Matthew 23:5-12. This same mindset is stated by the apostle Peter as he speaks to elders/pastors of the church: Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by constraint but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock (First Peter 5:2,3). Think upon this statement by the Messiah-Servant: A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher (Luke 6:40). When these truths are implanted into ones soul/spirit (James 1:21), there will be no place for such manmade distinctions as clergy and laity or manmade titles as Reverend, Father, Priest, Cardinal, Pope, Pastor, etc. What a new concept the Messiah brings to the world. Old traditions tottered on their thrones and received their death sentence, for the Greatest stooped to become the lowest. And in this act of condescension, there was grace, the shinning glory of the mercy of God. All through the life of Jesus can be felt the throbbing pulsethe Highest has stooped to serve; the Purest of all has stooped as a servant to bear the sins of the vile and rebellious Messiah-Servant.

In Breaking Free: The Journey, The Stories (Updated Edition), Beth Moore looks at the Book of Isaiah through the lives of the kings who ruled during the prophets ministry. This in-depth womens Bible study draws parallels between the captive Israelites of the Old Testament and New T estament believers in Jesus as the Promised Messiah. These kings exemplify many of the obstacles to freedom with which one must deal. Using Scripture to help ide ntify spiritual strongholds in your life, no matter how big or small, Moore explains that anything that hinders us from the benefits of knowing God is bondage. This study is open to all women, regardless of church affiliation. Fellowship and learning are the main focus of the group. This is a 12week study, starting at 1 p.m. Wednesday. For more information on the study it can be looked up on the Internet at www.lifeway.com/n/Produc tFamily/Breaking-Free(2009). Participants are responsible for their own books, which can be purchased online at the link lis ted above, or by calling the church at 385-7848 or Traci Roberts at 835-0141.

We noted that from the beginning, lying has always been against Gods will. Whether one looks to the Old or New Testament, l ying has always been wrong. We may live in a time when some people excuse lying for a variety of reasons, but God has never e xcused lying for any reason. Where did lying originate? Well, the first recorded lie took place in the garden of Eden. In Genesis 2: 16-17, G od commanded the man, From any tree of the garden y ou may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not e at, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely d ie. However, in Genesis 3:4, the serpent (Satan) told the woman just the opposite. He said, You surely will not die! And, the rest is history. A dam and Eve fell for the lie, ate of the forbidden fruit, a nd were cast out of a paradise on earth because of their sin. Jesus compared a group of people to Satan in John 8:44. H e said, You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature for he is a liar and the father of lies. On the other hand, Paul wrote in Titus 1:2 that God cannot lie. So, when we lie, we are following in the footsteps of Satan, not God. Because Satan represents the very essence of evil, he has always been at us to turn away from God and toward him. But, if we want to please God, we will seek the truth that comes only from Him and obey that truth. In 1 John 2: 4-5, we read, The one who says, I have come to know Him,and does not keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him; but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him. Therefore, we must do more than just tell the truth to be pleasing to God. We must also live that truth. Finally, what are the consequences of lying? They are the same as for any sin. Revelation 21: 8 reads, But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. The choice is ours: Live the truth and live with God, or live a lie and live with Satan. When you get right down to it, it is not much of a choice, is it? So, choose well now and live with God forever.

C M Y K DearAbby: I am a 30year-old transgender woman who has just started her journey. Feeling more comfortable in my skin, I have been going to some local hangouts with some friends from work and meeting straight men. My question is, when is it appropriate to disclose that I am a preoperative trans woman? I have tried online dating on trans-friendly websites, as well as visited the local transgender bar, but those men tend only to be looking for sex, and I am looking for more than that. I would love your advice on the matter. Starting My Journey DearStarting: For your safety, it is important that you disclose your status early, before there is any sex involved. If you dont, the straight man could react violently. At this point, it would be a good idea to contact PFLAG (Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) because it can put you in touch with resources to help you through your journey. The largest increase in new individuals reaching out to PFLAG is now among people with trans issues and this includes both trans individuals and their family members. It is critically important to seek out a culturally competent therapist to help you with specific issues. To find referrals and a local chapter, visit pflag.org. DearAbby: My husband is in Afghanistan for a year. When he returns, I want to ask him to get tested for STDs before we have sex. I do not have any specific reason to think he would be having sex with someone while deployed, but lets face it. Hes a man, and a year is a long time to abstain when there are females present. How do I approach the subject in the most effective way? I know that when I do, he will be mad, but its not the first time that STDs have been a problem in our relationship. Help! Thinking Of My Health DearThinking Of Your Health: One would think that a man who loves his wife would want to be absolutely positive that he wouldnt give her a sexually transmitted infection. However, because your husband has given you one before, it is perfectly logical that you tell him it is the reason you want him to be tested before resuming your marital relationship. DearAbby: Im a single 32-year-old who lives across the country from my family. I have two sets of grandparents who both send me birthday and holiday cards containing checks. The problem is, I earn close to six figures, which is far more than my grandparentsincome in retirement, and I have only myself to support. I typically shred their checks when I receive them. Should I continue to do this, or should I tell them that as much as I appreciate the sentiment, a simple card would be fine? Secretly Shredding in Seattle DearS.S. in S.: When a check isnt cashed, it is obvious to the check writer, and it can cause problems in balancing the person's checkbook. I think your solution to tell them you no longer need the checks is a good one. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, July 12, 2013Page B9 Solution, B8 Diversions/Puzzles Review: Pacific Rimis skillful and very noisy By JOCELYN NOVECK APNational Writer Its one of the saving graces of Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toros new m ega-budget monsters vs. robots extravaganza, that at a key juncture, it knows how to make fun of itself. This welcome bit of comic relief amid all the crunching, s mashing and groaning in 3D comes just as the good g uys that would be the robots, or rather the humans operating the 25-story m achines built to save humanity have hit a snag. T hese massive, digitally controlled contraptions suddenly all fail at once. But then eureka! someone points out that one r usty old robot is analog. And so, in a movie that has s pent some $200 million to boast the very best in stateof-the-art tradecraft, an anal og machine saves the day, at least temporarily. Ha! Holy r etro technology. Its too bad that del Toros film, a throwback to the J apanese Kaiju monster films made famous by Godzilla, doesnt have m any more such deft moments. Though its made by an obviously gifted director and will likely please devotees of the genre, it ultimately feels very short on character and l ong on noise, noise, noise. Did we mention the crunching, smashing and groaning? Happily, the plot is not convoluted (the script is by Travis Beacham and del T oro) and theres at least one really cool concept, called The Drift. No, this doesnt involve land formations. Its the mind-melding that occurs between the two pilots of each Jaeger thats what they call the mega-robots that humans have built to fight the monsters rising from the sea. Subjected to a pre-flight neural handshake, the pilots are suddenly sharing brains, the better to command their robot. This leads to amusing dialogue, such as: You know what Im thinking? Beat. Im in your brain! Thats meant to be funny, but a later remark seems inadvertently so, when the hero balks at going back to battle: I cant have anyone in my head again! The real action begins some seven years into the Kaiju offensive (and circa 2020.) The Jaeger program, once successful, is failing. Global defense authorities decide to drop it and go for a giant coastal wall. Didnt they see World War Z? Ask Brad Pitt: Walls dont keep out zombies, and they wont keep Kaiju out, either. Its back to the Jaegers. Enter jaded former pilot Raleigh Becket (a handsome but bland Charlie Hunnam). Raleigh lost his co-pilot and brother in a Jaeger fight, and is in no mind to share his, er, mind again. But humanitys at stake. His new co-pilot is a young Japanese woman named Mako (Rinko Kikuchi) with a serious beef against the Kaiju. Showy supporting parts are played by Idris Elba as the impressively named commander Stacker Pentecost; Charlie Day as a manic, nerdy scientist (but not as funny as he could be); and Ron Perlman as a shadowy Kaiju-parts dealer. It takes a good hour for the real battle to get going. Youre glad when it does, but mostly, you wish the mind-melding concept had been mined more fully, especially since the scenes inside peoples minds show, too briefly, another, subtler side of del Toros talents. One arresting flashback to Makos youth almost seems to come from a different movie like the directors powerful 2006 Pans Labyrinth. Too bad del Toro doesnt share a bit more of that terrific side of his moviemaking mind with us here. Mega-budget Pacific Rim is skillful and very noisy Kerry Hayes/Warner Bros. Pictures/MCT Charlie Hunnam, left, and Rinko Kikuchi star in Pacific Rim.

C M Y K Page B10News-SunFriday, July 12, 2013www.newssun.com Living F AMILYFEATURES Keeping a healthy home for your family means more than daily chores and the occasional deep cleaning. Its important to add routine inspections of often overlooked areas and regular maintenance to your list of tasks. Every home can have unhealthy, harmful, or even hazardous areas, said Mike Holmes, renowned contractor on HGTVand healthy home expert. Its important to check them out, especially during regular maintenance. Addressing these hidden hazardshelps create a healthy home and keeps your family safe. Holmes recommends following his SAFETY checklist to ensure your home is safer and healthier for your family. SSeekoutleadinthehome. If your home was built before 1978, it could contain lead. Your family could be exposed to it through the air, drinking water, contaminated soil, deteriorating paint and dust in and around the house. If you disturb any material that contains lead, tiny lead particles could become airborne at home. Talk to a professional to test the entire house, and take the necessary steps to ensure your familys safety. AAddressindoorairqualityandchangeyour airfilter. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollution levels can be 2 to 5 times higher than outdoor levels sometimes even 100 times higher. Your lungs shouldnt be cleaning the air inside your home. Use an electrostatically charged Filtrete Brand air filter to help capture odors and airborne particles, such as mold spores, dust mite debris, bacteria and viruses. Plus, changing your filter at the start of every season helps protect and maintain your system.FFixleakstopreventmoldandmildew.Mold spores need moisture to grow and thrive in warm, humid conditions. When mold is disturbed, its spores can get into the air you breathe. Inspect your home for excess water and moisture build-up from leaky roofs, faucets, basement drains, dishwashers and washing machines, and fix them immediately. Also, reduce your indoor humidity to 30 to 60 percent, and use vents and exhaust fans whenever possible. EExercisecautionaroundappliances.Before using appliances such as space heaters and toaster ovens, make sure they are working properly. Never drape an electrical cord over a sink, as electricity should never come into contact with water or any other liquids. Also avoid overloading wiring or plugging too many appliances into a single wall socket because it can cause electrical sparks, leading to an electrical fire.
