By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING At 6:30 a.m. on W ednesday, those with police scanners no l onger will be able to hear radio traffic f rom Highlands Countys safety services. O nly authorized personnel will be able to p ick up the chatter from area police, fire a nd ambulances. Its all part of a $7.2 million project t hat has been years in the making and b rings Highlands County into the 21st c entury of radio communication. The r adios will switch from the previous anal og system onto the new P-25 Digital 800 m egahertz band. Now we will have a very robust selection of channels that will allow us to communicate with the counties that surround us, said apt. J.P. Fane of the Highlands County Sheriffs Office, who has been overseeing the project at the communications center. All first responders in the county will be switching on Wednesday morning. The Federal Communications Commission has reserved the frequencies for public safety services in an effort to ensure secure and uninterrupted communications. The project has been in the making for better than a year and involves radios in patrol cars, ambulances and fire vehicles throughout the county. It began with a radio failure incident and after officials looked in to what it would take to fix the problem, they decided it would be less expensive and more efficient in the long run to go ahead and move forward into a completely new communications system. They decided they had been putting band-aids on it long enough, Fane said. Additionally, all law enforcement channels will be encrypted for added security.

B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK A ccording to email messages f rom city manager Julian D eleon, the city council is g oing ahead with a special j oint meeting with the police p ension board at 6 p.m. W ednesday. The meeting w as set at the last minute d uring the councils regular m eeting Monday. Deleon made this decision d espite a communication f rom the boards attorney, S cott Christiansen, Friday i nforming him several key b oard individuals are not a vailable that evening. Of five trustees contacted, C hristiansen said, three r equested the meeting, but t wo did so only if C hristiansen could attend. The lawyer told Deleon, I h ave a long scheduled quart erly pension meeting with a nother client that night. I w ill not attend on 9/4. He added that Carol K napp the plans administrat or, also had a timing conf lict and that Greg Warner, t he board chairman, did not c all the meeting. Christiansen told Deleon, Should the city council still m eet 9/4 and two or more trustees attend the meeting, those trustees attending would have no authority to take any action as the Board of Trustees ... I would recommend that if two or more trustees do attend that they not participate in the discussion or make any statements about the issues. Christiansen went on to recommend setting another meeting date for a time when all appropriate parties could be present. Deleon responded saying, the city will move forward with a special joint meetingas advertised by the city clerk ... Whether you show up or not, the issues will be discussed by the city council. Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Students at S outh Florida State College w ill benefit from nearly $ 15,500 in scholarships t hanks to the Florida College S ystem Foundation. The f oundation recruits gifts and d onations from national and s tatewide groups and disburse s them among the 28 Florida c ommunity and state coll eges. South Florida State C olleges (SFSC) allocation f rom the foundation was $ 8,278 from Florida Blue for n ursing and allied health s cholarships, $2,840 from H elios Education Foundation f or first-generation scholars hips, and $4,159 from Bank o f America for first-generat ion students. The Florida College S ystem Foundation has been c ontributing scholarship doll ars to our college since 1 999, said Don Appelquist, e xecutive director, SFSC F oundation, Inc. We've been a ble to match many of these g ifts with local contributions, a nd hundreds of needy and d eserving students have bene fited. Scholarships for students i n nursing and allied health f ields have been provided by e ndowed funds from Florida B lue since 2006. These prog rams are among the most e xpensive degrees for stud ents to pursue given the c osts of laboratory courses, b ooks, national board exam f ees, uniform fees, and equipm ent. Scholarships will prov ide the community with m ore nurses and allied health p rofessionals meeting critical w orkforce needs. We are so blessed to have a community that loves S FSC, said Wendall W illiams, former SFSC t rustee and founding member o f the Florida College S ystem Foundation. The p eople in our community r eally deserve credit. What a d ifference the college has m ade in the life of these stud ents. SFSC has been one of t he best things to ever happen t o this district. Funds for first-generation student scholarships were provided by endowments from Bank of America and the Helios Education Foundation. First-generation students often face unique challenges, including less academic preparation, limited access to information about the college experience, and lack of support. Scholarships can help alleviate financial struggles for many of these students. SFSC has received scholarship funds from Helios Education Foundation since 2007 and from Bank of America since 2001. The Florida College System Foundations endowed scholarships help make a difference in the lives of thousands of students across the state, said Dr. Thomas E. Furlong Jr., chairman of the foundations board of directors. We are proud to support first-generation college students as well as students in the nursing and allied-health fields. The Bank of America Dream Makers Scholarship and the Helios Education Foundation First Generation Scholars Program scholarship are awarded to students who meet the eligibility requirements as a first generation in college student. Students must also be in good standing with the college and must submit a copy of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application along with the scholarship application. Students can apply to these scholarships through an online application. Call 784-7254 for more information. The aim is for every student to go to college, said Violeta Salud, member of the board of directors for the Florida College System Foundation. Few people know what goes into the process of raising funds. Im extremely impressed with the Florida College System, and it's a pleasure to give these checks to SFSC. The Helios Education Foundation is a non-profit organization that focuses on improving student success and creating postsecondary educational opportunities for individuals in Arizona and Florida. The SFSC Foundation, Inc. manages more than 100 endowed scholarships, raises funds to support academic programs at SFSCs four campuses, and organizes community-focused events that highlight the Heartlands sole public college. The SFSC Foundation Inc. accepts contributions in the form of cash donations, check, or credit card. Donorstax-deductible contributions directly support students and educators, while helping the continued growth of the college.

There are a lot of things going on to commemorate the event, including speeches by former presidents Clinton and Carter and current president Obama. I have only heard recordings of the speech, since I was only 5 years old when it was given. But it has a lot of power. And if you have any inkling of what things were like in 1963, it was a bold speech, calling for equality and fairness. One line of the speech has always struck me. It goes, I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. This is something worthy to aspire to. Atruly colorblind society. Where skin color is no more or less important than hair or eye color. Where people are judged by who they are, not by how they look. How are we doing with that? I could point to progress that has been made in the last 50 years. The fact that we no longer have Whites Only water fountains or entrances in any of our 50 states. The fact that there are blacks in professions across the board in this country. The fact that our president is half-black, something that couldnt even be dreamed of in 1963. But we are not there yet. We are not yet colorblind. There are several reasons for this. One is there still exists a group of people to whom race matters. They think they are superior because they happened to be born with a white skin. They ignore the teachings of the Bible, which states in Galatians 3:28 that There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus (KJV), signifying that race doesnt matter. These people are difficult to reason with and filled with hate. If it werent for the harm that they do I would feel sorry for them. To them, everything is about race and how bad the ones they choose to hate are. But there is another group that fights the goal of colorblindness. I hate to say it, but there are those in the civil rights movement to whom race still matters and must be paid attention to. For these people everything is about race as well. They are allowed to be bigots when it comes to whites, but woe to the person who criticizes a person of color for any reason they are automatically labeled as racists. To these people race must be considered in every facet of life, and preference must be given to those they represent. If we refuse to do so if indeed, we call for a society where race isnt a facto r to anything we are automatically against them. T o them, it doesnt matter ho w much progress weve made over the years in race rela tions its still an issue, and race will always matt er to them as much as it matters to the Klan member, albeit for different reason s. I side with Dr. King. Th e goal must be for us to achieve true equality a way to treat people that h as nothing to do with what they look like and everything to do with who they are. Thats how I persona lly try to treat people. My dream, if you will, is that we get to the point that its how everyone treats each other. Is that so terrible a thing to want?

Commonsense solution needed for renewable fuel standard E ditor: As the owner of Palmetto C reek Farms, I am extremely c oncerned about the impact o f this countrys Renewable F uel Standard (RFS) on my b usiness. Over the past three y ears, my farm has faced h ardship and struggled to b reak even in the wake of r ising grain and fuel prices. There are several aspects o f the RFS mandate that put m y business at risk. The c orn I use to feed my lives tock each day is becoming i ncreasingly expensive as m ore than 40 percent of U.S. c orn is now being used to p roduce ethanol. Farmers a nd refiners are now competi ng for this resource and my s mall farm can scarcely a fford to pay the high prices c aused by decreased supply a nd increased demand. The rising cost of corn is m aking gasoline more e xpensive, as well. The fuelo perated equipment and v ehicles required for heavy f arm work make it more e xpensive to run daily operat ions. To make a bad situat ion worse, this biofuel is l ess fuel efficient and e thanol content beyond 10 p ercent (E10) could damage t he fuel pumps and engines i n my costly equipment. The RFS poses a great t hreat to Palmetto Creek F arms. If Congress does not find a way fix this policy, it will continue to hurt small farms like mine and our ability to support our families. We need a commonsense solution that will reform Americas renewable energy policy. Jim Wood Avon ParkMarch on Washingtons 50th anniversaryEditor: Aug. 28, 2013, marked the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.s 1963 March on Washington. This momentous event in the Civil Rights Movement, led to the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the 1965 Voting Rights Act and 1968 Fair Housing Act. It served as the proverbial foot in the door that strengthened, solidified and forwarded the freedom movement. Reflecting upon that day, and countless moments since, I find myself assessing how far have we come since Dr. King proclaimed, I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal." Today, the first AfricanAmerican president and the U.S. attorney general preside over the highest seats of government. In entertainment, Oprah Winfrey and Magic Johnson lead multibillion dollar media empires. African-Americans sit atop large corporations, like Merrill Lynchs president Stanley O'Neal, and head major educational institutions of higher learning, like Ruth Simmons who became the first African-American president of an Ivy League university. I, myself, earned a masters and doctorate from New York University and have had many opportunities to success as I serve as an associate director for Program Development and External Affairs at the University of South Florida. Would I have had the incredible opportunities to reach this level had those brave individuals not marched on Americas capital city, shouting, We shall overcome on that day 50 years ago? Perhaps. Or maybe, perhaps not. The 1963 March on Washington for jobs and freedom remains a pinnacle event in the Civil Rights Movement and the very history of our great nation. Although the speeches may wane and the posters may fade, the movement must live on. Commissioner Dr. Donna Elam Florida Commission on Not funding IDA/EDC a good call ... for right now While politicians and administrators h ave usually tried to balance needs and c osts, too often tax payers have been t reated like the golden goose a ready s ource of easy cash while politicians m ade short-sighted choices that were s elf-indulgent and inefficient. T houghtless spending gave government a bad name. Unfortunately, many Americans have b ecome just as cynical, selfish and s hort-sighted, focusing on lowering t heir tax bill, not on solving problems. T oo often the prevailing mood is, Whats in it for me? and Its your o wn fault. Given the general refusal to raise t axes, tensions continue to grow especially as tax revenues continue to fall. Where once there was extra money to spend, now there isnt enough to go around. Public safety, clean water, working utilities, trash collection and road surface maintenance are essential, but expensive. The county has had to cut back or cut out support to many important programs like the Boys & Girls Club shifting fund raising to the private sector. Which brings us to the county commissions decision to not fund the Industrial Development Authority/Economic Development Commission in 2013-2014. All things being equal, investing in an IDA/EDC makes a great deal of sense. Thanks to technology, companies around the world now look far afield when preparing to expand or relocate operations. Aprimary IDA/EDC function is to look for those growing companies that are a good fit with county resources and facilitate their movement here. While important to the future, in terms of priorities during hard economic times, recruiting new businesses doesnt rank as high as a new ambulance or keeping a full compliment of deputy sheriffs on the road. While we regret the need for the decision, we understand the commissions do-the-least-harm choice. It is in everyones best interest to keep at least some form of IDA/EDC active and involved. There are some funds put aside, and the local business community can do more to raise money and provide volunteers. Even so, we believe public support for thoughtful development sends the most powerful message. We hope the county can find more funding next year. In the meantime, official fiscal policy for many groups seems to be reach out to private individuals. That may have do in do in this emergency, but remember: While it may seem cheaper in the short run, relying on the kindness of strangers is always expensive often more expensive than paying a tax. T axes are always a difficult topic. Nobody likes to h and over hard-earned m oney. On the other hand, e veryone expects quality p ublic services.

w as pronounced dead at S ebastian Regional Medical C enter due to severe head t rauma. The week-long trial began T uesday and concluded by 4 p .m. Friday. The 19th C ircuit States Attorney O ffice was represented by D avid Dodd and Chris T aylor. Avery emotional Carlson r ecalled the details of what w ent on the weekend of his w ifes death. Wed always try to find w eekends we were all availa ble Julie and I owned t he boat. We took it out seve ral times a week. It was just a general weekend at the b each, just a vacation. We g ot there Thursday night a round 10 or 11 (p.m.). We d idnt do any fishing that n ight, we went to sleep. F riday morning, Scott ( Noethlich) and I got up e arly before daylight and w ent fishing without the g irls because they liked to s leep in, Carlson said. According to Carlsons t estimony, he and Noethlich s pent the day fishing in the f amiliar waters around North H utchinson Island near their F ort Pierce campground. C arlson and Noethlich r eturned to their wives a round lunch time. The coup les enjoyed dinner and a m ovie Friday evening. Carlson recalled the e vents of the Saturday night t he accident occurred. Did you drink that day? d efense attorney Michael S nure asked Carlson. We probably had a coup le of beers around 10 a.m. b oth days, yes, Carlson r eplied. Snure questioned Carlson r egarding his meals, mood a nd the condition of the b oat. After several minutes of r ecounting his grouper and s oup at a local restaurant, C arlson described the g roups activities just before s unset on that day. We left Waterside Grill a nd I went to check boat to m ake sure it would start a round 12:30. The batteries w ere dead, so I went to try t o find one. It was low tide, s o while we were waiting, w e fished. When the boat w as charged, we headed b ack to campground. We had d ogs with us so we let the d ogs out, I sat in hammock, c harged the boat again. At l east another hour passed b y, Carlson said. We left c amp again and headed north a round 2:30. Snures next questions s parked emotions in Carlson. What were you headed n orth for? Was there any p articular destination you w ere headed to? Snure a sked. No, we were just heading n orth. The girls liked to look a t the houses around the i nlet especially around Vero. T here is some beautiful p roperty around there, C arlson said. So just sight-seeing and f ishing, Snure asked. Yes, sir, said Carlson. Carlson was then asked if h e recalled having any alcoh ol around that time. Carlson s tated that he probably had a c ouple of beers while they w ere around the inlet. There was a pretty sunset t hat day, Carlson said, f ighting tears. We stopped a nd took pictures. We saw s ome dolphins then we heade d to Captain Hirams for d inner. When you arrived did y ou feel under the influence at all? Snure asked. No, sir, said Carlson. Carlson recalled having two rum and Cokes at dinner, one while eating appetizers and one approximately 30 minutes later when his main entre arrived. Carlson also recalled having at least one glass of water with dinner. I left table around 9 p.m. I paid, signed credit card receipt, went to dance floor. We danced for about 45 minutes. The set ended and the band took a break around 10 p.m. so we left the restaurant and walked to the dock and prepared the boat to leave, Carlson said. Noethlich initially moved the boat away from the dock as he stated in his testimony earlier this week, Carlson confirmed. The boats spotlight was not working so Carlson and Noethlich switch positions and Carlson took over. It was a full moon that night; it was pretty bright out. You could see reflective material in the distance could even see some of the bigger signs. Went out towards what I thought was the channel, Carlson said. Julie, Scott and Annie were situated at the front of the boat keeping watch. Just before the collision, Carlson stated he recalled hearing Scott and Annie yell something along the lines of look out. I turned the boat to the right slightly because I thought that was the best thing to do. Just before we hit the piling my wife stood up and starting walking toward me, Carlson said. Carlson stated again that he was not drunk when the group left the restaurant. Dodd cross examined Carlson briefly, asking why he would navigate waters he was not fully familiar with without a spotlight at night. You are aware that you cant stop immediately. Youre an experienced boater. You know there are no brakes on a boat. You couldve, if you wanted to, idled out like you did when you came in, correct? Dodd asked Carlson. I couldve done a lot of things, Carlson said. But you made the decision to throttle it out. Your 200-horsepower boat, you put it on a plane going what experts say and have calculated approximately 28 miles an hour. You went in at 10 miles an hour in the day time but came out going almost three times that at night, after drinking all day, Dodd said. Snure offered Carlson two more simple questions following the states cross examination. Jeff when you made the decision did you think it was safe? asked Snure. Yes. Jeff did you try to kill your wife? No, Carlson said in tears. Earlier Friday, Dodd lead the testimonies and cross examining questioning of the defenses witnesses Friday, asking a slew of questions to certified auditor Janine Arvizu. Arvizu testified that blood alcohol level results could easily be contaminated. The witness spoke of her concerns about fermentation of blood as result of lab work. If you have the right conditions, fermentation can happen, left at room temperature, said Arvizu. Arvizu stated she had been analyzing gastromatolgoy results for decades. States witness, Ruth Vacha FDLE Crime Lab Analyst, disagreed later during the trial that provisions are made to ensure no errors are made when making a blood analysis. Dodd stated in his closing argument that the defense has tried to create forced doubt amongst the jurors, stating that incidents such as the boats GPS data being missing for nine days following the incident, the fact Carlsons blood sample was destroyed in error and unavailable to the defense for independent testing and the disagreement between Vacha and Arvizu could not hide the fact of the blood alcohol level itself. Carlsons alcohol level following the incident, which was taken three hours after the collision, was around 0.07. According to the states expert witness earlier this week, for a man of Carlsons size the body eliminates approximately .015 percent of alcohol per hour. According to the experts calculations, that would have put Carlsons blood alcohol level at .121 at the time of the accident. (Impaired persons are considered to have blood alcohol levels anywhere between .05 and .08; .08 is legally impaired.) Thats what we are here about today, the actions of this defendant. The death of Julie Carlson is tragic, not a tragic accident. Its that recklessness fueled by alcohol that brought us here today, said Dodd. Im not going to stand up here and tell you Carlson was drunk. Impaired is different than drunk He was going too fast, in the dark, after drinking. Whats changed to make him feel so confident that he could navigate those pilings after dark? Three variables changed: dark instead of light, he has had more to drink and that spotlight didnt come on. That is the evidence. Snure stated that what happened was indeed an accident. Theyve spent the better part of this week trying to prove a crime was committed. They want to taint. They arent interested in the witnesstestimony. All their effort is to say that this was such a bad judgment, but experts said you can navigate the Intercoastal Waterway at night without spotlight. His judgment was not, Can I make it to Fort Pierce? It was, Can I make it to right there? said Snure. Snure continued his closing argument by stating that the state had been careless with evidence, that their expert witnesses were not credible and that the police departments lack of field sobriety test is an indicator that the state has not proved guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Not every accident is a crime. Not every death is a crime. The medical examiner said he was not impaired (and) said it was an accident. (Police) couldn't keep track of the evidence. This whole thing smells. Was it a mistake? Of course it was a mistake. Real people make mistakes. But not every mistake is reckless. Pretty obvious he knows he made a mistake and he wishes he hadnt made that mistake, Snure said. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 1, 2013 Page A5 DR.

We have more s pace to move around and f or centers and we can split u p into groups and do more t hings, said Leaphart. What makes the teaching m odel unique at SNLE is the n umber of students in the c lassroom itself. Most of the other schools Woodlawn, Cracker Trail they have about 40 to 45 s tudents. We have 53 in o urs, said Schuknecht. Due to the large classroom n umber, administration hired a substitute to help in the c lassroom for the first two w eeks of school. Acertified t eaching assistant (CTA) will b e placed in the classroom o n Monday. This isnt a HARRT c lassroom. Its almost like a r egular fifth grade classroom e xcept we have more kids. W e have a very broad range o f students in here on all diff erent levels and of all diff erent backgrounds and k nowledge, Schuknecht s aid. The diverse classroom is another unique attribute to SNLEs team teaching model. The students have been grouped based on how they did on the baseline assessment given the first week of school. The groups may likely change once the nine weeks progresses and students show changes in their knowledge levels. Right now we have three groups. That group with Mr. (Todd) Coleman is going over homework. Over here we have instruction or reteaching and back here this group is broken up into the centers, said Hornick. Weve seen a lot of models that show that the team teaching is successful. This is just an opportunity for more information and resources to be shared. Supervilles superhero students are well on their way to a year filled with learning and growth. Hornick and Schuknecht have worked on many different ways to teach concepts and curriculum by attending conferences and forums during the summer months. Hornick, who speaks with other team teachers in the district, sees the model as a way to network and share information not only with teachers in one specific school but with others in the district. Hornick explained the model allows each teacher to have personal one-on-one time to help with the needs of the individual while not taking away from a lesson. This model is really working well. We thought it would work better with our veteran teachers. The administration is very supportive of this classroom and the model, said Assistant Principal Isaac Durance. The kids are getting a lot of education in a lot of different ways. It keeps them excited about learning.

l ock out any receiver which i s not registered. Used to be, you could go o ut an buy a radio and if you g ot the internal information y ou needed, you could prog ram it and then listen to u s, he said. But not anym ore, this one is so smart t hat if you turn on a radio it w ill sense that a new unit h as been added to the syst em. If the system does not k now who you are, you will b e locked out. In addition to making it e asier for different units in H ighlands County to talk to e ach other, it also connects t hem with units in neighbori ng Polk and Hardee count ies. Moreover, officials say i t will eliminate dead spots i n the area which have been a problem for law enforcem ent officers and other first r esponders. That is due to major piece o f equipment known as the Motorola Switch, a hub in P olk County which is used b y a number of other units in C entral Florida. Polk has been kind e nough to let us tie in, and t hat switch alone cost $4-5 m illion, Fane said The unit allows patrol cars t o drive as far away as T ampa and Orlando and still b e able to transmit and r eceive the same as they w ould right here in H ighlands County. Fane e xplained it continues to e xpand as more and more a gencies tie into the system. The new system also prov ides greater ease for disp atchers as it will eliminate cross-talk between mobile u nits. Before, they could talk o ver each other. Now if two u nits key up, the system will d ecide who was first and let t he second one know hey, y ou need to hang on for a s econd, Fane said. Moreover, the digital computerized system can move the transmissions between different frequencies and direct the console to automatically follow the broadcasts so they are seamless for safety services communicating with dispatchers. Safety service personnel will be able to travel even long distances with a roaming capability that will not only provide a greater range, but clearer levels of communication. This new system will greatly improve the safety of our deputies, firefighters and emergency medical folks, Sheriff Susan Benton said in a press release. Further, our ambulances will be able to communicate with the hospital emergency rooms from the scene rather than just before they arrive at the hospital. This could truly improve the level of treatment for our residents while en route to the hospitals. Thank you to all of the hard working folks at Motorola, the County project manager, Chris Benson, and all of the technicians at EMS, Fire and the Sheriffs office. Although the new system involves handheld radios for individuals, vehicle radios and consoles in the communications center, Fane said that due to budget constraints there were a number of radios that were not purchased this year. Costs were held down to some extent through a deal with the vendor, Motorola. For every radio we bought, wed trade in our old one and they would give us a discount, he said. As the switch in radio frequencies happens Wednesday morning, there will be a commensurate physical switch by dispatchers, who had to move from the communications center to the countys Emergency Operations Center while the upgrade was taking place. Aspecial and loud shout out goes to our dispatchers who again without complaint had to move from the new communications center to the EOC while this upgrade was taking place, Benton said. They are amazing and never missed a beat in answering your calls for help and then dispatching the help to you.

J.P. Fane HCSO captainNow we will have a very robust selection of channels that will allow us to communicate with the counties that surround us. New public safety radio system takes over airwaves on Wednesday activities. It will also provide an opportunity to shop with local merchants and dine in the cafes that will be open. Five of Lake Placids non-profit organizations will be participating the Caladium Arts & Crafts Cooperative, Tobys Clown School and Museum, the Lake Placid Art League, the Mural Society, and the Train Depot Museum. Special activities and refreshments will be available at each business on the tour. The Caladium Arts & Crafts Co-op at 132 E. Interlake Blvd. will be honoring the September Artist of the Month, Bev Fyffe, with a reception. Not only will the artist be available, but purses, aprons and table settings that she made will be displayed. The artists that will be teaching the fall classes will be demonstrating their skills, as well as signing up students for classes. Classes have a size limit, so it is important to sign up early to insure you place in the class, Hinskey said. Many of the member/artists at the Caladium Arts & Crafts Coop have donated special one-of-a-kind items for a basket that will be given away during the tour. Big Al Pelski, president of Tobys Clown Museum at 109 W. Interlake, said he is very excited about the First Friday Tour. Pelski will be out of town at a national clown convention, but will make sure there are clowns doing their thing for the event. Tobys Clown Museum will be donating a clown Tshirt and some surprise clown memorabilia for their basket. The clowns will offer free face painting, a magic show and balloon animals. Near the Clown Museum is the Train Depot and Museum. The building has been refreshed and many of the exhibits have been reorganized. When visiting the Museum, one can view a video that features Melvin Dewey, who founded Lake Placid, and the history of Lake Placid. On display will be a wealth of memorabilia and artifacts. Anumber of Bibles were recently donated by Florida Hospital in Lake Placid. The building is being painted and repairs are being made due to a recent donation. Donation s from the Museum will include a Caboose coffee cup, the Melvin Dewey video and a few surprise items. The Wood Carvers and other artists will be showcasing their skills at the Lake Placid Art League at 127 Dal Hall Blvd. Many of the artists wares are not readily accessible to the public, but unique for Firs t Friday, some of their creations will be available fo r purchase, Hinskey said. The Lake Placid Mural Society, located inside the Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce at 18 N. Oak Ave., will be showing the Mural Societys video on the history of the local murals. The highlight of the evening will be the drawin g for a huge basket filled will items from each location which will include many original pieces. To enter th e drawing, one must pick up an entry form from each o f the participating vendors and have it stamped. The completed form must then be put in a box at the final stop on the tour. The draw ing will take place Monday, Sept. 9. One need not be present to win, but entrant s must be 18 years old. Each location will have official entry rules.

By DAVID DEGENARO News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Expectations w ere high this week as a l ively Sebring squad squared o ff against what looked to be a strong Lake Highland Prep t eam. Sebring, who had thumped M ulberry the previous week in the preseason Kickoff game, took their confidence into Friday nights contest to face its first real test of the season. And their confidence s howed as Streaks took care o f the Highlanders, 27-7, at a soggy Firemens Field, foll owing thunderstorms in the a rea which delayed kickoff. We will take a win, said h ead coach LaVaar Scott. We definitely have things to w ork on, but we will fix it. The primarily defensive f irst quarter ended with no s core and the game up for g rabs. Sebring quickly grabbed a nd held on tightly to the l ead as the Streaks started o ff their scoring with a phen omenal 43-yard rushing t ouchdown by AJ Gayle. After Hunter Livingston t ook care of the extra point, S ebring was now in the lead 7 -0 with 11:42 left in the s econd quarter. The Streaks scoring cont inued as Toni Jenkins, who h ad another strong performa nce carrying the ball, ran 13 yards into the end zone, that was followed by a Livingston converted extra point. Sebring made their way into the second half with a 14-0 lead over the Highlanders. The Streaks started off the second half with a bang, referring to the cannon that sounds every time the Streaks score, as quarterback Jair Watson ran 55 yards into the end zone. That scoring drive was capped off by another Livingston extra-point conversion making the score 210. Watson wasnt quite finished, however, as later in the same quarter he would rush for another touchdown. Following the blocked extra point, the score was 27-0 with 3:36 left in the third quarter. Lake Highland Prep just couldnt get anything going against a tough Sebring defense until the fourth quarter when they scored on a seven-yard pass and then converted the point after attempt.

Gayle finds a gap in the Lake Highlands defense on his way to a long scoring run in Sebrings 27-7 win Friday night. Dan Hoehne/News-S un Lindsey Whittington tries to get this tip past Breauna Corley Thursday in Sebrings sweep o f Lake Placid. Dan Hoehne/News-Sun fil es Robert Walton ran for one touchdown and threw for another in Lake Placids 28-14 win at Celebration Friday. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWhat a difference a week, and better conditions, can make. After spinning their wheels on a soggy field in an 8-0 Kickoff Classic loss to Okeechobee one week prior, Lake Placid saw the offense get rolling in a 28-14 win at Celebration Friday night. It was a good thing too, as the Storm drew first blood and the Dragons found themselves playing catchup pretty quickly. After taking the opening kick off, Celebration started to move and saw running back Grant Crider find a seam and race 35 yards for a touchdown barely one minute into the game. The point after was good and it was Lake Placids turn to march down the field. And march they did, with the running attack moving the chains in rapid fashion before Marquavein Copeland took a page out of Criders book and raced 28 yards for a score, while Jorge Godinezs point after attempt split the uprights and tied it up at 7-7. Last week we did a terrible job of executing, quarterback Robert Walton said. This week we pulled it together and scored on almost all of our drives. The Dragon defense then held on the Storms next possession and would get the ball back to the offense at their own 40 with just over four minutes left in the opening period. The offense kept churing out the yards, getting inside the Celebration 20 as the first quarter bridged into the second. Moving it to the one as the second quarter commenced, Walton snuck through on a keeper to give the Dragons the lea d. Godinez again connected on the point after to put the score at 14-7. Agood return on the ensuing kick off saw the Storm get the ball near midfield and soon surge inside the Lake Placid 20. But again the defense stiffened and got the ball back at the 20 with three minutes to go in the half. Picking up the pace, th e Dragons roared down the field, getting it down to the one with less than one minute left. Eldon McKenzie then bulled it in, Godinez booted it through and the lead at the half stood at Dragons subdue the Storm Lake Placid28Celebration14 Sebring27Lake Highlands7 See LP, Page B3 By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAs often happens when a p rogram is in a rebuilding m ode, a step forward can be f ollowed by two steps back. That was the case for the R ed Devils of the gridi ron Friday night, as t hey couldnt continue t he momentum of last w eeks 13-0 Kickoff C lassic win over T enoroc, and took a 4 2-14 thumping from F rostproof. The signs were there from t he start that this would be a l ong night for the Avon Park f aithful who made the short t rek just across the Polk C ounty border. Though the Devils were to r eceive the opening kick, the Bulldogs built themselves a 13-0 lead before Avon Park even ran an offensive play. The first two kick offs by Frostproof couldnt be held onto by the Devils, the Bulldogs recovered each time and would turn the ensuing possession into a touchdown. The Gaines brothers, quaterback Xavier and running back Kaleel, scored those first two, with Trevis Harrington soon running in a 37-yard touchdown. Kaleel then caught a 25yard touchdown pass from Xavier at the 5-minute mark of the first, and when Cecil Cherry returned an interception 33 yards for a score at the 2:22 mark, it was a 33-0 Frostproof lead. It was the Avon Park defense, however, that got them on the board when, three minutes into the second quarter, Zack Farr scooped up a fumble and dashed 20 yards to make it a 33-6 game. But the Bulldogs answered back with two more secondquarter scores, including a touchdown pass with one second left on the clock, making it 48-6 at the break and implementing the running clock for the duration of the game. This saw the third quarter go by pretty quickly with no further damage done, which was how the fourth quarter was moving as well until the Devils at least got one more to end on a relatively high note. With just over two minutes to go, Lauer Lewis crossed the end zone from six yards out to provide for the final margin. Its kind of tough to overcome with two fumbled kick offs and four turnovers in the first quarter, head coach Wade Jackson said. We did see some good things offensively, but we are a young team and weve got to build up their confidence. Well continue to work on that. Avon Park returns home next week as they look to take another step forward as they host the Mulberry Panthers. Bulldogs take bite out of Devils Frostproof48Avon Park12 By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING After sweepi ng the Frostproof Bulldogs l ast Tuesday, the Lady S treaks were determined to s weep the next team they p layed. Coincidentally enough, it w ould be the Dragons of L ake Placid. The history between this m atch up have been similar w ith a few exceptions, in t hat they are usually knockd own, drag-them-out, fives et battles. Thursday nights contest, h owever, was a big except ion to that rule. For the first time in years, t his match did not end in f ive sets or four, but it was a s weep with the Blue Streaks o n top. My girls came to play t onight, I was really proud o f them, explained Sebring head coach Venessa Sinness. My girls are on a mission, and Im really enjoying watching them and I think our fans are too. To kick the match off, a pair of aces by Lake Placids Jacalyn Baldwin put the Lady Dragons on the scoreboard first. Three consecutive kills by Sebrings Hannah Gotch allowed the Streaks to go on top 3-2. The next few points were back and forth between the two evenly matched teams. Another Gotch kill tied the score at 6. The Blue Streaks went on a short run adding, three more points to the score, until a Bella Caraballo kill sided out and made the score 9-7 with Sebring on top. At this point, the Lady Streaks were definitely on a mission and started to put the Green Dragons back on their heels and put fans on the edge of their seats. AHannah Tucker ace put the score at 14-10 leading Lake Placids head coach Charlotte Bauder to call a timeout to try and settle her team down. The timeout did not slow down Sebring by any means. Both teams added an additional four points to their scores making it 18-14. Apair of tips by Jordan Hinkle and a kill by Harris was cause for another Lake Placid timeout at 22-14, but Sebring soon finished the set 25-17. Akill by Cadie OHern started the Streaks off right in the second set, but a kill by Breauna Corley tied the score. The Blue Streaks went on a 6-1 run over the Dragons Lady Streaks sweep Dragons See SEBRING, Page B4 Blue Streaks handle Highlanders See STREAKS, Page B3 We definitely have things to work on, but we will fix it.LAVAARSCOTT Sebringhead coach

From there the Dragon defense halted two Celebration drives to move things into the fourth quarter. Early in the fourth, their was a bit of a Storm surge as they got inside the Lake Placid 20, then inside the 10, before Stefano Saragusa plowed in from the three. The point after was good and the lead had been cut to 28-14. But thats where it would stay as the Dragons closed it out and got their regular season started with a solid win. Our offense still has some things to work on, b ut they are little things, Walton said.

Its the national pastime of C uba and has long united e xiles and those still on the i sland. It also has divided them. Over the years, dozens of t op players have defected to t he U.S. On Saturday, a retired g roup of those players will finally match up against their island counterparts in a game that would have been inconceivable a decade ago and that was nearly derailed earlier this summer. The Fort Lauderdale game is between former members of the Industrials, Cubas version of the Yankees. It had been slated for last month at Florida International University. But in July, the university canceled the deal, citing contractual issues. But a letter from the schools attorney sent to the ACLU shows officials got twitchy about the events political nature. Im excited, this is pretty cool, said Carlos Campos, 30, who left Cuba a decade ago. He waved away questions about the controversy. This is about a game, not political arguments.

By BRENTKALLESTAD Associated PressTALLAHASSEE F lorida State redshirt freshm an quarterback Jameis W inston makes his highly a nticipated collegiate debut M onday when the defending A tlantic Coast Conference c hampions visit Pittsburgh in t he season opener for both t eams. Seminole fans have been a nxiously awaiting the twos port stars football debut f rom the day he signed a lett er of intent to bring his w idely chronicled athletic a chievements to Florida S tate some 19 months ago. Theyve already been t eased by Winstons spectacu lar spring game showing a nd his feats on the baseball d iamond experiences S eminoles coach Jimbo F isher believes will translate t o success for the 6-4, 225p ound 19-year-old. In all team sports you h ave your individual respons ibilities, but baseball a little m ore so, Fisher said. Hes p layed in big games and p layed in the tournament. Winston was projected as a high pick in the 2012 M ajor League Baseball draft, b ut dropped to the 15th r ound before being chosen b y the Texas Rangers, maki ng his decision top pursue a c ollege career a bit easier w ith any sizable baseball b onus not available. Winston appears at ease w ith the attention although h es been mostly off-limits t o media the last three w eeks. Its a blessing that Im g etting all that publicity, but a t the end of the day were l ooking at that big picture, h e said. I dont find anyt hing embarrassing. Winston becomes just the t hird freshman to start a seas on opener in Florida States g lorious football history. The other two, Chris Rix a nd Drew Weatherford, both g ot wins in their debuts. Hell be very anxious, I m sure, Fisher said during t he weekly ACC media call w hen asked about what to e xpect when Winston takes o ver for EJ Manuel, the lone q uarterback chosen in the f irst round of last springs N FLdraft. Control what you can c ontrol, Fisher advised. Understand youre part of s omething bigger than yours elf. If you have to play a b ig part that day, play a big p art. The affable Winston showed little, if any, anxiety before fans attending the spring game when he embarrassed Florida States first team defense, hitting 12 of 15 passes for 205 yards and a pair of touchdowns in little more than a quarter of action. Alot of the guys rally around Jameis. Thats pretty rare as a young guy, said senior cornerback Lamarcus Joyner, who was burned by the freshman on a 58-yard touchdown pass on Winstons first play in the spring game. This kid is going to be special. Fisher wasnt surprised Winston went after his most experienced defensive back on the play. He likes to be challenged, Fisher said. Unranked Pitt will present a formidable obstacle for the rookie quarterback, returning the nucleus of a defense that was ranked 17th nationally a year ago. Winston hopes to benefit from an experienced offensive line that has a combined 80 starts. The Seminolestop receiver, Rashad Greene, has nursed a finger injury through the latter part of the preseason drills but is expected to play Monday. We can go with the ball anywhere, said Winston, the latest prominent two-sport athlete at Florida State in a group that includes Deion Sanders and former Heisman Trophy quarterback Charlie Ward. Winston spent a week being coached by Ward a year ago in a high school All Star game in Texas. One thing about Charlie Ward, you can see it in his eye, he has that it factor, Winston said. I saw what he did on the field, he was great. Winston finds himself often compared to Ward arguably the schools most favorite athlete among its fan base. Ward, the 1993 Heisman winner, began his career as a redshirt junior with mixed results before settling into one of the most storied careers in the college game. Its just a new chapter in Florida State history, said junior left tackle Cam Erving, who will have a bulk of the responsibility of keeping the new quarterback safe. He has created his own identity with this team. Winston deflects credit to those around him and describes himself as little more than a cog despite the almost impossible expectations. Its us, instead of me, Winston likes to say. If we can get that us factor, whos going to beat us? Winston didnt nail down the starting assignment until last week after besting redshirt sophomore Jacob Coker, during August drills to claim the starting job for the nationally televised Labor Day opener in the Steel City. We definitely learn from each other, Coker said, adding that when youre playing quarterback at Florida State, youre inheriting a lot of pressure. Especially with the buildup that has surrounded Winston.

But the run continued as Sebring poured it on to the tune of a 17-4 lead before another timeout was called. Carabella and Corley tried to jump start Lake Placid with a pair of strong scores, and another Corley kill helped narrow the gap to 2315. But they soon ran out of time as the Streaks closed it out. This wasnt unfamiliar territory for the Lady Dragons, who had been down 2-0 two nights earlier, before staging a miraculous comeback and downing Okeechobee in five. And it looked like they may have flipped the switch to join this battle in the early going of the third set, keeping within range into the teens. But at 17-13, Sebring began to pull away, scoring six out of the next 10 to extend it to 23-17 before freshman Cadie OHern smashed a kill that put the finishing touches on the night. It was ugly, Bauder said. They werent talking, moving in slow motion. This was not the same team from last Thursday. We have some girls sick and injured, which has made our practices less productive and it showed on the court tonight. The Streaks traveled to Stuart Saturday to partake in the South Fork Tournament before returning to regularseason action Thursday at DeSoto. Lake Placid has the weekend and early week off before traveling to Lakeland for their first district match of the season against McKeel Academy.

By PETER ORSI Associated PressHAVANA The Florida Strait, a dangerous stretch of sea full of sharks and jellyfish that is prone to sudden, violent storms, has stubbornly resisted Diana Nyads repeated attempts to conquer it. Yet the Florida-raised endurance athlete was back in the water once again Saturday, launching her fourth bid in three years to become the first person to swim from Cuba to the Florida Keys without a protective shark cage. I admit theres an ego rush, Nyad said. If I three days from now, four days from now am still somehow bringing the arms up and I see the shore ... I am going to have a feeling that no one yet on this planet has ever had. She expects to take about 80 hours to arrive somewhere between Key West and Marathon, more than 110 miles (177 kilometers) from Havana. Nyad, who recently turned 64, tried three times in 2011 and 2012. Her last attempt was cut short amid boat trouble, storms, unfavorable currents and box jellyfish stings that left her face puffy and swollen. She says this will be her final try. She has said the same after previous defeats, but likened those statements to the rash promises of a heartbroken spouse. Every person whos married, the day after they get the divorce they say, Never again! Nyad said. But you need to heal, your heart needs to heal, and pretty soon not all men are bad again. Nyad has spoken of night swimming in particular as a mystical, almost out-of-body experience where she finds herself contemplating the nature of the universe. Still, she acknowledged some might wonder, Why would I come back to a place where maybe Im lucky I didnt die before? The answer is that its a longtime dream shes been unwilling to give up, and she said she shares an em otional bond with Cuba unlike any other place she might have chosen for a marquee swim. Nyad hopes a new silicone mask will protect her from jellyfish at night when they rise to the surface more. Shell also don a full bodysuit, gloves and booties. The kit slows her down, but she believes it will be effective. A35-person support team will accompany her at sea. Equipment that generat es a faint electrical field around her is designed to keep sharks at bay, and she stops from time to time fo r nourishment. Australia n Susie Maroney su ccessfully swam the Strait in 199 7 with a shark cage, which besides providing protection from the predators has a draftin g effect that pulls a swimmer along. Nyad also made an unsuccessful attempt in 1978 with a cage. In 2012, Australian Penny Palfrey swam 79 miles toward Florida without a cage before strong currents forced her to abandon the attempt. This June, her countrywoman Chloe McCardel made it 11 hours and 14 miles before jellyfish stings ended her bid. Amid shouts of Onward! from supporters, Nyad jumped from the seawall of the Hemingway Marina into the warm waters off Havana Saturday morning. My adrenaline is pumping very hard, she said. Which means in one half Im excited. I did all the training. The body is read y. My mind is ready. On the other hand, I admit Im scared.

Temperatures soared to records in recent days in parts of the region, reaching nearly 100 degrees in some areas. The heat wave struck many farm states from the Dakotas to Wisconsin, down through Missouri that have seen too little rain this growing season. Its about the worst case scenario we could have with these high temperatures and the lack of water with soil moisture declining, said Roger Elmore, an agronomy professor at Iowa State University. Awet, cool spring delayed planting and slowed crop growth but it also replenished soil moisture in many crop producing states, causing some of last years widespread drought to retreat. The rain stopped in July in many of those states, however, and as the soil dried out, the heat set in and stressed co rn and soybean crops. The southeast Iowa city of Burlington, which is surrounded by corn fields, ha d its wettest spring on record at 19.23 inches of precipitation, nearly 8 inches above normal. Yet its now on track to have its driest summer on record, with only 3.86 inches so far, 8.41 inches below normal. Corn and soybeans have developed enough that weather conditions are not likely to reduce the number of kernels on the corn cob or the seeds in soybean pods. But those kernels and seeds could develop smaller and weigh less, which cou ld reduce the harvest this fall, Elmore said. Midwest hot, dry spell brings back drought worries FLATROCK, Mich. ( AP) For the first t ime, Ford is making its F usion sedan in the U.S. The companys Flat R ock, Mich., plant began m aking the Fusion on T hursday. The plant, w hich is about 25 miles s outh of Detroit, made t he Ford Mustang sports c ar before getting a seco nd shift of 1,400 worke rs to make the Fusion. T he 66-acre plant now h as 3,100 workers. Ford Motor Co. had b een making around 2 50,000 Fusions each y ear at its plant in H ermosillo, Mexico. But t hat wasnt keeping up w ith demand for the hots elling midsize sedan, w hich was revamped last y ear. Sales this year are u p 13 percent to 181,668 t hrough July, making the F usion one of the bests elling cars in the count ry. We could have sold m ore if we had more, J oe Hinrichs, Fords presi dent of the Americas, t old a cheering crowd of w orkers at the plant. With the production at F lat Rock, Ford will be a ble to make 350,000 F usions each year. H inrichs said the cars b eing made Thursday w ould likely be sold w ithin two weeks, a m uch faster rate than the 6 0-day average for the i ndustry. The Flat Rock plant w as built by Mazda M otor Co. in 1987 and b ecame a joint venture w ith Ford in 1992. When F ord and Mazda severed t ies in 2010, the fate of t he Flat Rock plant was u ncertain. This very location w as on the chopping b lock. We didnt even k now if it was going to s tay open, said Jimmy S ettles, the chief Ford n egotiator for the United A uto Workers union. During contract talks w ith the UAWin 2011, F ord agreed to bring F usion production to Flat R ock. While Ford will h ave to pay U.S. workers m ore compared with M exico, where workers m ake $2 to $3 an hour, t he wage difference isnt a s high as it once was.

In a 1927 legislat ive session by way of S enate Concurrent R esolution Number 3, the m ocking bird was deemed t he representative bird for F lorida. Mockingbirds are known f or their ability to imitate s ounds that they hear. In f act, in addition to their u ncanny ability to replicate t he songs of other birds, they c an make sounds similar to a c ats meow, a dogs bark, a f rogs chirping and even a h umans vocals. It has been s aid that they can even m imic some mechanical n oises such as a fence gate s queaking. Throughout their l ife, they continue to acquire n ew sounds. They are avid s ingers and may continue w ell into the night with their v arying sounds. Mockingbirds are not as c olorful as many other songb irds. They are generally g ray on their backs and u pper body with white u nderneath. Usually they g row to be about 10 inches l ong and can have a fairly l arge wingspan of about 15 i nches. Besides their mimicking a bilities, mocking birds are k nown for their aggressive b ehavior. These birds are e xtremely territorial and t heir belligerent conduct is u sually because they are protecting their nests. Both the female and male construct the nest of twigs, roots, grass and other items they can find. The couple will usually begin to fabricate the nests in February or March. The area of choice is in a shrub or short tree. The mother bird can lay anywhere from three to six eggs and sometimes uses more than one nest. The eggs are usually a light bluish green with lots of brown spots. Mockingbirds will generally raise more than one batch of babies each year. In fact, they can lay as many as three times annually. While the mother bird is incubating the new eggs, the father will take care of the new fledglings that hatched previously. Mockingbirds have been known to mate for life and are usually monogamous. Both parents share in the rearing of young. As with other species of birds, the female incubates the eggs while the male hunts for food and keeps predators at bay. Mockingbirds dine on both meat and vegetation. They are omnivorous and consume bugs, bees, worms, lizards, butterflies, fruits and seeds. This quality makes the bird useful to humans by keeping the creepy-crawly bugs to a minimum. They also help to propagate many varieties of fruits by consuming them and spreading the seeds to other areas. Fortunately, mockingbirds easily adapt to urban situations. In fact, they can often be seen on a freshly mowed lawn seeking insects and worms. Since they are not particularly shy and timid, these birds tend to thrive in areas where other species may not. Mockingbirds have even been known to attack humans and chase them around in an effort to protect nests and territory. If you would like to attract these amazing birds to your yard, place a feeder with fruit, suet or mealworms where you can have a good view of it. But be aware that these feisty birds may chase other birds and critters away. Corine Burgess is and Environmental Specialist for the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department.

By ROD LEWIS News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Highlands L ittle Theatre finishes its t wo comedies for the summ er lineup with Lend Me A T enor at the Blackman S tage Sept. 11-22. The play w ill be directed by Allan G rosman, who directed The D iary of Anne Frank last y ear. This is a madcap comedy i n the vein of the Marx B rothers and Frank Capra of t he 1930s with mistaken i dentities, slammed doors a nd a very fast pace, says G rosman. The trick to this p iece is the timing. There are e ight bold characters, great r omance in the characters a nd each has a strong drive t o get what they want. One example is the chara cter of Sanders, who is p layed by Pete Pollard and is t he general manager of the Cleveland Opera Guild where the play is set. He is like a boy in a dike who has to use his hands and his feet to keep everything plugged, which is typical of 1930s style. In the play, world famous Italian opera singer Tito Merelli, also known as Il Stependo, is to perform Guiseppe Verdis Otello. Max, who is Sanders assistant, and Maggie Sanders, who is the daughter of Sanders and sometimes girlfriend of Max, complicate matters. Max wants to be a great singer and Maggie is secretly in love with Merelli and hides in the closet of the hotel to get his autograph. Merellis wife, Maria, discovers Maggie in the closet and assumes that he is being unfaithful. She writes a note stating that she is leaving and goes. In the meantime, Merelli accidentally takes too much tranquilizer and falls fast asleep. Before he takes his nap, however, he has time to give Max a singing lesson. When it is time for Max to wake Merelli, he is unresponsive because of the tranquilizer. When Max sees the note, he thinks Merelli is dead and tells Saunders, who sees his career flying out the window and decides that he must act to save his career and reputation. He dresses Max to look like Merelli, and tells him that he must perform in Merellis place. No one will know the difference, or will they? What happens next is a series of mistaken identities, slamming doors and utter confusion. Will Merelli wak e up in time to sing in the opera or will Max take his place? Will Maggie get her autograph? Will Sanders save his career? Will Maria make up with Merelli? Will there be a happily ever after to the story? To answer the se questions, you will have to see the play. Upcoming productions at the HLTinclude: Little Shop of Horrors coming in November, On Golden Pond will be performed in January, The Fox On The Fairway will be opening in March, The Wizard of Oz will be the July offering and Bus Stop will round out the 2013-2014 series. For tickets to Lend Me A Tenor or any of the performances, contact Highlands Little Theatre Bo x Office at 382-2525 or stop by at 356 West Center Avenue, Sebring to place your order. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, Septemeber 1, 2013Page B7 E.O.

Comedy debuts Sept. 11 NEWORLEANS (AP) A painting by a 37-year-old L ouisiana primate who a pplies color with his tongue i nstead of a brush has been d eemed the finest chimp anzee art in the land. Brent, a retired laboratory a nimal, was the top vote-gett er in an online chimp art c ontest organized by the H umane Society of the U nited States, which a nnounced the results T hursday. He won $10,000 f or the Chimp Haven sanctua ry in northwest Louisiana. AChimp Haven spokeswoman said Brent was unavailable for comment Thursday. I think hes asleep, Ashley Gordon said. But as the society said on its website, The votes are in, so let the pant hooting begin! pant hooting being the characteristic call of an excited chimp. Five other sanctuaries around the country competed, using paintings created during enrichment sessions, which can include any of a wide variety of activities and playthings. Chimpanzee researcher Jane Goodall chose her favorite from photographs she was sent. That painting, by Cheetah, a male at Save the Chimps in Fort Pierce, Fla., won $5,000 as Goodalls choice and another $5,000 for winning second place in online voting, Humane Society spokeswoman Nicole Ianni said. Ripley from the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula, Fla., won third place and $2,500. More than 27,000 people voted, Ianni said in a news release.

By JAKE COYLE APEntertainment WriterNEWYORK Tom H anks didnt know where t he cameras were. Captain Phillips, a b ased-on-a-true-story tale a bout a cargo ship taken by S omali pirates, was Hanks f irst time working with Paul G reengrass, the United 93 a nd Bourne Identity direct or known for his visceral, d ocumentary-like filmmaki ng. Hanks, who plays the t itular captain in a performa nce sure to be hailed as one o f his best, had been warned b y Matt Damon about the c haos of Greengrasss u nblocked, naturalistic a pproach. But Hanks, after one part icularly chaotic take, asked h is director: Are you going t o get that little session over b y the maps? Theyd say: No, we got t hat,recalls a still perp lexed Hanks. When? W hen did you get that? Captain Phillips (out O ct. 11) is only one way m oviegoers this fall will be f ully, often staggeringly i mmersed in worlds as vari ed as slavery-era Louisiana ( Years a Slave), 1970s M assachusetts conmen ( American Hustle) and o uter space, among the detrit us of a space station torn a part by a storm of debris ( Gravity). The movies, perhaps more t han any other art form, have t he ability to transport a c apacity to carry away t hats on full display this f all. We shot this in the real w orld: the real engine r ooms, the real decks, says H anks. Theyll say: How d id you make that movie w here that ship was out in t he middle of the ocean? W ell, we got on a ship and w e went out to the middle of t he ocean and we shot it t here. Extraordinary how t hat happens. Soon, the fall movie seas on will unofficially comm ence, the superheroes ( mostly) falling from thea ters like autumn leaves. A fter a summer of blockb uster gluttony, Hollywood w ill, as if penance for its b inging, trot out its more s erious and ambitious fare. G eorge Clooney this fall d irecting (The Monuments M en), producing (August: O sage County) and acting ( Gravity) will put down s takes. Theres some hope that a fter a knock-about summer h eavy with city-destroying t umult and some spectacular f lops, that a degree of levity w ill return to the multiplexe s. (That is, until the evere xpanding Oscar horse race c ommences in earnest.) Last fall, after all, showed t hat good, adult-oriented m ovies could still draw c rowds. Avaried best-picture f ield, from Lincoln to Life of Pi, made more than $ 2 billion at the box office w orldwide even before the A cademy Awards. This autumn promises no l ess a mix of both aspirat ional filmmaking and mains tream attractions. As if her f ans needed notice, Jennifer L awrence will return not just w ith Silver Linings P laybook director David O. R ussell in American H ustle, but also as Katniss E verdeen in The Hunger G ames: Catching Fire (Nov. 2 2). Aquite different fervor w ill greet Will Ferrells Anchorman: The Legend C ontinues (Dec. 20), the l ong-in-coming sequel. T here will be other sequels, t oo, including Chris H emsworth in Thor: the D ark World (Nov. 8) and P eter Jacksons high-frame r ate The Hobbit: The D esolation of Smaug (Dec. 1 3). As the CIAanalyst of the best-selling Tom Clancy books, Chris Pine will try to jumpstart a new franchise in Jack Ryan (Dec. 25). But other types of powerhouses will compete with action spectacle. John Wells adaptation of Tracy Letts Pulitzer Prize-winning play, August: Osage County, features an ensemble cast topped by the tantalizing duo of Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts as mother and daughter. As a moviegoer, I would much prefer that films were spread more evenly over the year, Wells says. But realistically, weve now programmed everyone to expect this when these kind of films are going to be there. Not unlike a certain fruit or vegetable thats in season at certain times of the year, you kind of anticipate it and look forward to it. Its picking time. True talesFor Years a Slave (Oct. 18), director Steve McQueen drew from Solomon Northups 1853 autobiography about his horrifying odyssey as a free black man with a family in upstate New York kidnapped and sold into slavery in 1841. With undiminished dignity, Chiwetel Ejiofor (Dirty Pretty Things, Kinky Boots) plays Northup as hes led from plantation to plantation. McQueen tells the story straightforwardly, often in long takes, submerging the audience in the world of slavery. Ejiofor says McQueen aimed to tell Northops story literally, without embellishment. In doing that, it creates its own intensity, says the actor. I remember having conversations about if one can capture even for a moment for an audience what any of these things might have felt like, might have tasted like, might have really been like, then I think its a really powerful piece of filmmaking, says Ejiofor. Even for a season known for prestigious biopics, theres a plethora of films based on true stories: Nicole Kidman plays Grace Kelly (Grace of Monaco, Nov. 27); Benedict Cumberbatch plays WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange (The Fifth Estate, Oct. 18); Idris Elba plays Nelson Mandela (Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom, Nov. 29); and Matthew McConaughey plays an industrious HIVinfected man (Dallas Buyers Club, Nov. 1). Theres also Hanks as Walt Disney (Saving Mr. Banks, Dec. 20); Naomi Watts as Princess Diana (Diana, Nov. 1); Ralph Fiennes as Charles Dickens (The Invisible Woman, Dec. 25); Daniel Radcliffe as Allen Ginsburg (Kill Your Darlings, Oct. 18); Hemsworth as Formula One driver James Hunt (Ron Howards Rush, Sept. 27); and Channing Tatum as Olympic wrestling champ Mark Schultz (Bennett Millers Foxcatcher, Dec. 20).Cinema starsLike McQueen, Alfonso Cuaron (Children of Men, YTu Mama Tambien) is known for his predilection for uninterrupted takes. He opens Gravity (Oct. 4) with an unbroken 17-minute shot, the kind that bravura craftsmanship cinephiles will drool over. In the film, Sandra Bullock and Clooney play astronauts tethered together after theyre left stranded in space. The film is, in part, a chamber piece between two characters, floating in the black abyss. Its also a playground for Cuaron and his cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki to experiment with 3-D effects and zero-gravity camera movement that isnt beholden to up or down. To keep the audience adrift in space, Cuaron resisted cutting. Its the idea of trying to create a moment of truthfulness in which the camera happens to be there just to witness, and respecting that moment in real time, says Cuaron. In this film, we felt it was going to bring the added value of the immersive element. Many other top-flight filmmakers will be showing their craftsmanship this fall, including Martin Scorsese, wholl release his The Wolf of Wall Street (Nov. 15), a story of the decadence of modern finance starring Leonardo DiCaprio that should rival that of the actors last film, The Great Gatsby. The Coen brothers have Inside Llewyn Davis, (Dec. 20), a film about a folk musician struggling in early 1960s Greenwich Village. Ridley Scott will release The Counselor (Oct. 25), a dark Mexican border thriller from a script by Cormac McCarthy. Nebraska (Nov. 22) is Alexander Paynes return to his native Midwest, a blackand-white father-son road trip. Spike Lee has his remake of Chan-wook Parks Oldboy (Nov. 27). More fanciful will be Ben Stillers The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (Dec. 25), an adaption of James Thurbers short story; and Spike Jonzes Her (Dec. 18), a futuristic romance starring Joaquin Phoenix. Family fissuresTo create a realistic impression of the Westons, the Oklahoma family of August: Osage County, Wells congregated his cast picked to feel like a family at an old Osage County home. The cast lived in a complex of small town homes together throughout the shoot, says Wells, the producer of ER and Shameless, making his second feature film following 2010s The Company Men. It was a ways from town and from home. People didnt return to the trailers often. We were just in the house, living as a family and rehearsing. The cast even started adopting similar physical gestures and facial expressions to match their fictional parents, Wells says. Streeps three daughters (Roberts, Juliette Lewis and Julianne Nicholson) aped her mannerisms to lend a familial truthfulness. Other tales of family, albeit of very different sorts, this fall include Prisoners (Sept. 20) a thriller in which Hugh Jackman and Terrence Howard play fathers whose daughters go missing. In Out of the Furnace, Christian Bale and Casey Affleck star as brothers separated when one is lured into a gang while in prison. In Jason Reitmans Labor Day (Dec. 25), Kate Winslet plays a mother who, with her 13-year-old son, encounter an escaped convict.Awards attentionMany of these films will naturally enter the awards circuit and the months-long handicapping leading up to the Oscars. It was only months ago that Russell went through that gauntlet with Silver Linings Playbook, which received eight Academy Awards nominations, winning one for Lawrence. An instinctive filmmaker (Theres an immediacy when it comes from the gut , he says), Russell escaped the frenzy by jumping quick er than he ever had between films into American Hustle (Dec. 25). The film, which stars Bale, Lawrence Bradley Cooper and Amy Adams, is a stylish story about the FBI Abscam operation and a cast of corrupt characters operating in the s recession-era Northeas t. Its about the world of these people who are jawdropping to me, says Russell. You look at them, and youre like: Oh my God. Who are these people? Theyre messed up and human, but theyre fighting to survive. Russell can again expect the prestige of a release in the heart of awards season. But the aura of the season, he says, ultimately means little. The film has to prove itself, says Russell. Let th e proof be in the pudding.

DearAbby: Twenty years ago, my oldest sister, Olivia, loaned me $3,000 at a time when I was struggling to make ends meet. I promised to repay the loan at the end of the year. The time came and I wrote her a check for the full amount, but she didnt cash it. She said she didnt need the money and the loan was forgiven. Fast-forward 20 years: While Olivia has remained financially stable, I am now in a better place financially because of an inheritance. After learning about this inheritance, Olivia asked me for the money back. Because I can afford it, I plan on repaying her, but I cant get over her surprising request. Do you have any words of wisdom to help me make sense of this? Unsettled Sibling DearUnsettled: Your sister may have forgiven the loan all those years ago because she thought repaying her would have caused you financial stress. Now that she knows youre well able to give her the money, she would like to have it. You and I dont know why shes asking for it, but trust me, there is always a reason. DearAbby: I have been talking to Ricky for about two months. Im 28 and he is 27. Acouple of weeks ago we decided to date exclusively. This morning, Ricky found out that his ex is three monthspregnant with his child. I knew he was last intimate with her three months ago, but we were both kind of shocked. I dont have kids and I prefer not to date men who do, let alone one who has a baby on the way. However, I do care about Ricky and could definitely see us together. After this bombshell, Im not sure what I want to do. Any advice would be appreciated. Thrown for a Loop in Philadelphia DearThrown fora Loop: After this bombshell, the person who has some serious decisions to make is Ricky. Will this cause him to reunite with his ex-girlfriend? Is the baby really his child? If so, what will be his responsibility financially and morally? If he stays with you, do you want to help raise another womans child? Until you have a better idea of what lies ahead, my advice is to do nothing. You have known Ricky for only two months, and while you could see a future for the two of you, can you also see one that includes the three or four of you? Im including the ex in the equation, because she'll be a part of it. Forever. DearAbby: I quit drinking three years ago. I realized I had a problem, addressed it, and Im now sober. I never was a big drinker socially. I drank alone. When I go out with friends for dinner, they usually rack up a large liquor bill, which is evenly split. Occasionally, Ill ask that the liquor portion of the bill be subtracted from my tab, but doing so makes me feel awkward. I enjoy going out with these people, but I dont want to add another 20 to 25 percent to my tab. Whats your advice for addressing this situation? Sober in the South DearSober: Congrat-ulations on your sobriety. Away to avoid being charged for the liquor your friends consume would be to quietly advise the server at the start of the dinner that you would like a separate check.

With the first, we watched as four pieces of a modular home constructed at a factory made its way to our property. Under the direction of our contractor, cranes hoisted one-fourth of the house to sit upon the half already secured on the basement foundation.Then the last fourth was raised and anchored a two-story colonial house in place. When we moved to Florida, we contracted with a builder to construct the present house in which we have lived for 25 years. We can attest to its strengths and solid construction and have been grateful for it all of these years. However, while selecting reputable builders for both houses, our reliance was firmly on God. We dedicated each house for his purposes and built on the solid rock of our faith in Christ Jesus. He alone is the cornerstone and, therefore, our work in building and living our lives has been on that firm foundation. Tomorrow is Labor Day, a time to celebrate the worker and his work. Work has its joys and its difficulties.But, at the end of the day, we are the most fulfilled when we accomplish meaningful work. During these tough economic times, many companies have downsized affecting many careers. And, of course, men and women still want to work to care f or their families, but also, to fill the need to accomplish a task well. Whether still actively employed or seeking employment, a reminder from Scripture may be a wise word in season. It says in Psalm 127: 1, NKJV, Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it; unless the Lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain. So, in every activity, we are to include the Lord Go d in our plans and labors so they are not self-centered, and, consequently withou t true results. The same holds true wi th caring for our city. We must acknowledge Gods sovereignty if we want his blessing of safe-keeping. Following that line of thought, whether already in a job/career or seeking on e, involve and acknowledge the Lord for the work in which he has you or to which he will lead you. Psalm 128 continues the thought when in verse one it extols those who fear the Lord and walk in his way s, continuing in verse 2, When you eat the labor of your hands, you shall be happy, and it shall be well with you. Your labors will not be in vain. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.

Thats not to say you cant have fun, j ust be aware of how much you are s pending. This includes joining a fratern ity or sorority. Ask questions, and m ake sure you know fees and how they w ork, Schaefer said. Every chapter is different, but a q uick scan around Forbestop-100 coll eges list finds prices to be, well, pricy w ith average dues as high as $3,362. If you still need a more rigid budgeti ng structure, Kobliners book suggests t rying a free website like w ww.mint.com.

Mint collects all of your transactions i n one place, allowing you to see where y our money is going and how you can s ave.HOUSINGAccording to the College Board, the average college student pays between $8,000 and $9,500 a year for room and board, with $2,500 to $4,500 of that total going toward food. Although that can take up a large portion of total college costs, there are ways to minimize these high prices. Obvious options include living with family nearby. Arecent report by student loan provider Sallie Mae said 57 percent of students are using this option. However, with most colleges requiring incoming freshman to live on campus, that may not be an option. Here are some tips to keep in mind: Location:It is no doubt that low-cost areas, smaller towns and public colleges come with a cheaper price tag. According to a 2012-2013 U.S. News and World Report, Fordham University in Bronx, N.Y., charges $15,374 per year (including board) for their spacious New York City apartment-style spaces. Tamara Almai, a senior communications/media major at the university, paid approximately $1,700 a month when living in dorms and will pay $800 after moving to an apartment in Brooklyn. Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva, Okla., offers the most affordable room and board in the nation, according to U.S. News, charging just $1,300 for a modern suitestyle dorm with basic amenities, and $3,700 including the weekly 19-meal dining plan. Its all supply and demand and local market driven, said Marc Wallace, director of students and housing at the Oklahoma school. Its a town of only 5,000, and theres no major highway or city nearby. Stick to the basics: No need for extravagance in freshman dorms. Schools like Clemson University have a $3,000-per-year discrepancy between the cheapest, basic dorm and the most expensive, luxurious one. Volunteer: Schools like UCLA, offer a cheap co-op housing option in exchange for four hours of chores a week. University Cooperative Housing Association Executive Director Arusha Weerasinghe said that price-wise, UCHAis about a third of what it costs to live on campus, meals and utilities included. USEFULTIPSWhen it comes to other ways to save on campus, here are some smart habits to help avoid living off ramen noodles. Schaefer said the key to saving money is your attitude: If youre likely to look at everything with a question in mind, youre likely to save. Here are some questions Schaefer recommends:Is there an event going on?If youre a freshman, most likely, yes. There will always be events on campus with free food, shirts and other activities. Take advantage of them.Should I bring my student ID?Yes! If youre on a college campus, most establishments from hair salons to concert venues will have a student special or discount on one or more days of the week. If youre paying full price, question it.Can I make that myself? This doesnt just apply to two-ingredient recipes (http://bit.ly/RRJwH8). If you can turn cereal boxes into useful storage organizers, go ahead! And if you cant, visit websites like www.instructables.com, or Schaefer suggests finding someone that can. Its about using your social network, she said.Is there an app for that? Always. And with the college crowd being wellversed with technology and social media, many of the discounts are easy to obtain. Check in at establishments on Foursquare and Yelp on your smartphone, and subscribe to Groupon and LivingSocial deals for your college town, Schaefer said. TRANSPORTATIONUnfortunately, for most incoming freshmen, many schools have policies that prevent you from having a car on campus. Here are some tips for what you can do when you need transportation that your own two feet cant provide. If youre in need of travel within your college town, many schools offer a bus system that is free for students. One great service that many universities are turning to is NextBus (www.nextbus.com/ homepage/), a free online site that alerts students to when buses will be arriving for certain stops. For those going to school in a cit y, Almai said, if you ride the train (subway) several times a week, then it certainly pays off to have a weekly or monthly unlimited MetroCard. Alma i also said she rides her bike as much as she can. Amtrak (www.amtrak.com) offe rs more than 500 destinations with stops in 46 states for those avoiding the airport. With a mobile app compatible on most smartphones, it allows you to book trains, check schedules and can generate an e-ticket. That said, always compare prices with airlines; the train might not always be cheaper. Hipmun k (hipmunk.com) is a site and app that i n addition to price can sort your flight options by agony, or the number of connections and the duration of the tri p including any layovers. If youre looking for a cheaper alternative to Amtrak, look no further than Greyhound buses. Greyhounds prices are reasonable and it serves more than 3,800 North American stops. If you are absolutely in need of a car and dont have one of your own, yo u can always turn to carpooling. Make friends with someone who has a car an d you can both benefit you, by getting where you need to go, and them, by sharing the cost of gas. Of course technology has eliminated the need to personally know someone with a car. You can reach out to people on your class Facebook pages, or you can turn to ride sharing apps such as Lyft, Ridejoy or Sidecar Ride to get where you need to go. By Jace Evans and Zainab MudallalMcClatchy-TribuneCollege is meant to be the best years of your life and they better be for the price youre paying. For the 2012-2013 school year, the average students budget hovered around $22,261 and $43,289 for public and private institutions respectively, according to the College Board. Thats a lot of money. Although Congress approved a bipartisan student loan deal that ensures lower federal loan rates, higher education still comes with a massive price tag. This fall, 21.6 million students are expected to attend U.S. colleges and universities, a 6.2 million increase since fall 2000, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. For many of these students money management will be one of the most important and toughest things theyll face. To help ease the process, weve complied these tips and hints.
