Heartland Workforce job fair surpasses May attendance within two hoursBy PHILATTINGER pattinger@newssun.comSEBRING Geri Snyder, with 37 years of insurance experience, has been looking for a job every day since Aug. 1. Carl Paustian, retired from the U.S. Navy and recently laid off from a manufacturing job, has been looking since June. Meanwhile, younger applicants Jenna Velez and Brodie Hulsey who graduated from local high schools within the last two years want something to pay the bills as they work toward other goals. They were all at Thursdays job fair at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Center in Sebring. The first hour was reserved for military veterans only. At 11 a.m., it opened to the general public. Stephanie Christenson, staff sergeant with the U.S. Army, said she managed 22 soldiers as a platoon sergeant and could have served as a drill instructor. By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Business owners, community leaders, residents and representatives of the local faith community turned out Wednesday at the Jack Stroup Civic Center in the Allen Altvater Cultural Complex for the annual Blessing of the Businesses. Based on the blessing of the fleet activities in Destin, the event is designed to give members of the business community an opportunity to seek prayer for their economic efforts. The colors were presented by a team from the Lake Placid High School Reserve Officer Training Corps followed by the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag and an opening prayer from Sebring Mayor George Hensley.

P igman and Grimsley for t heir help in bringing him up t o speed on local issues, noti ng his widespread new territ ory includes parts of H ighlands, Hardee, DeSoto, G lades, Manatee, northern C harlotte and southern H illsborough counties. I do a lot of driving, he s aid Galvano touted several a ccomplishments of the last s ession, including ethics r eform in the form of the d issolution of committees of c ontinuous existence, which w ere fundraising mechan isms for a number of electe d officials. But because there were a buses in that type of entity, a s of last month they have c eased to exist in the state of F lorida. We worked on more t ransparency and less opport unity for conflict of intere st, he said. Galvano also discussed o ther action, such as the pass age of a measure that curt ails the use of drones by l aw enforcement agencies, n ew rules tightening and c larifying gambling statutes a nd resistance to federal m andates such as a push t oward a nationalized health c are program. We did not implement O bamacare because we were j udicious about it. There still i s a great deal of unpred ictability. Every day we see s omething new about it. It s eems to me at this point it i s breaking under its own w eight, he said. Grimsley, a former state r epresentative and now a f reshman senator, described l ast years session as one of t he most successful in the p ast few years. She said t here was a lot more bipartis anship in the state senate. I think the difference is .. there are 120 members in t he House and only 40 in the Senate so it makes it a lot easier to get along with your neighbor whether you agree with them or not. Its still very civilized, she said. I found that having that working relationship makes it a lot easier to get legislation done, legislation blocked or appropriations passed. Grimsley also noted that as a state senator she had significantly more committee assignments than she did in the house. She also explained that as appropriations chairwoman during her last two years in the state House of Representatives she was not able to sponsor personal legislation. Grimsley also told the audience about work she had done on specialized legislation, including such things as biosimilar medications and water quality credit trading mandates. She also noted that the legislature had been able to reduce some taxes while putting money back into reserves. I believe the state is in a very strong financial position, she said. Pigman did not get into legislative issues during his opening remarks, instead discussing his deployment in Kuwait where he was the Director of Emergency Services with the 48th Combat Support Hospital attached to the Central Command of the 3rd Army. He discussed restrictions under which service personnel were forced to work, both on a social and physical level. During his talk, Pigman took the opportunity to remark that the United States should stay out of the Syrian conflict, opining that America has no interests there. When it came to Gov. Rick Scotts recent tour to discuss state tax cuts, Grimsley said it was her understanding that would not come in the form of handing costs down to local governments but would be reductions in state charges and fees. The legislature had passed some fees on tags and driverslicenses and what we are looking to do is roll those back, she said. Galvano agreed, saying legislators needed to be cautious about handing down unfunded mandates. He also agreed with many comments in opposition to the proposed Common Core education standards advocating for local control of the system. We all share the same view that you do, we are united states. We are not one federal government that runs everything for everybody, he said. I dont want to see federal overreach. The panel also agreed they would not hesitate to invoke the 10th Amendment of the Constitution when it came to the issue of states rights versus federal mandates. We have a federal government that is out of control, said Tea Party member Dale Pflug. You, as our elected state officials, really are our only hope to stop and reverse the infringement of the federal government. The group will be back to work soon. Committee meetings for the upcoming session are set to begin Sept. 23, with subsequent hearings to be held each month until the full session next year ,which will commence in March. pub block; 5.542"; 4.5"; Black; publishers block; 0 0 0 2 6 4 0 3 Page A2 News-SunFriday, September 13, 2013 www.newssun.com This weeks question: Should utility systems add fluoride to drinking water?

The society will be accepting nominations for the annual Pioneer Woman Community Briefs Continued on A6 Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID One Cornerstone H ospice patients greatest desire was r ecently fulfilled due to a collaborative e ffort involving the Anthropology d epartment at UCF and a UCF student, a ll assisted by a number of Cornerstone H ospice staffers and volunteers. Having lived among Navajo Indians i n our nations southwest, Donna D ubose of Lake Placid owned a sizable p ersonal collection of native American a rtifacts, but her concern about her coll ection being lost in a weekend garage s ale and disrespected upon her passing k ept her up nights. Enter Cornerstone Hospice Social W orker John Burd. Aware of the hospice p atients emotional concern to see her c ollectibles appropriately cared for, B urd contacted Dr. Sarah S. Barber at t he UCF anthropology department. B arber promptly recruited an undergradu ate student, Maria Castro, who drove to L ake Placid to meet with Ms. Dubose a nd catalogue her collection. Cornerstone Hospice volunteers Janet D ann and Shirley Dowling dedicated c ountless hours providing companions hip and assisting Dubose to record the s tory of her collection. Dorothy L. H arris, volunteer specialist with C ornerstone Hospice, assisted in trans cribing all the data. After hundreds of hours of work by a ll involved, Florida Museum of Natural H istory agreed to accept virtually the e ntire collection. Upon signing the docu ment donating her collection, Dubose s he was grateful to have the collection where it will be appreciated. Dubose said that her grandfather, V ernon Bloomfield, the son of one of t he missionaries out west, had built the f irst trading post on the Navajo reservation. He had grown up among Indians his age and spoke as fluent Navajo as he did English. Vernon was a go-getter kind of guy and competed with the regions favorite son and U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater on the subject of collecting hand-made Kachina dolls as they were very good friends. One of the prized pieces is the Two Grey Hill Rug. The only wool used on these rugs are natural wools without the use of any artificial dyes. These wools are in high demand because there are only so many native Indian weavers getting fewer and fewer, like everything thats wonderful, said Dubose. The rug was purchased in Farmington, N.M., during the early 1950s at the local trading post. My mother purchased it at the time, and hoarded it all those years. I got it after she died during the s and have enjoyed it all these years, said Dubose. The owner of the trading Post was Elijah Blair from Cortez, Colo. I want to make sure that Elijah is mentioned because we worked for him for several years, my husband traded and he could speak Navajo fluently like one of the Indians. I wanted to mention Elijah because he was a great guy. We at Hospice are ecstatic to see that this native American collection by a former patient is on its way to soon be enjoyed by visitors to Florida and we at Cornerstone Hospice thank everyone who played a role in making this possible, said Cornerstone Hospices Deborah Harley, who oversees the Polk, Hardee and Highlands region.

But erratic enforcement of t he law has emboldened supp orters of legislation in C ongress that would end the r estriction. Far from needing t o be repealed, the ban on p olitics in the pulpit ought to b e enforced more aggress ively. Abill sponsored by Rep. W alter Jones, R-N.C., would r epeal a 1954 amendment to t he tax code sponsored by t hen-Sen. Lyndon B. J ohnson. The amendment s ays that churches and other s o-called 501(c)(3) nonprofit o rganizations may not part icipate in, or intervene in a ny political campaign on b ehalf of (or in opposition t o) any candidate for public o ffice. Joneslegislation seeks to restore the st Amendment rights of churches, but thats misleading. Churches may have a 1st Amendment right to endorse candidates, but there is no constitutional right to a tax exemption. Congress is free to condition such exemptions which can be worth millions of dollars on an agreement by churches and charities to refrain from partisan political activity. And its the IRS responsibility to enforce compliance. Unfortunately, enforcement has been minimal, despite highly publicized protests in which some preachers have endorsed or opposed candidates by name during religious services, daring the IRS to sanction them. Paradoxically, the lack of enforcement is cited by some critics as a reason to repeal the law. Not all critics of the Johnson amendment would abolish it. The Commission on Accountability and Policy for Religious Organizations, comprising religious leaders from several traditions, recently suggested that members of the clergy should be allowed to endorse candidates in the context of a religious worship. But churches would still be barred from spending taxdeductible contributions on election activities. The problem with that proposal is that a political endorsement from the pulpit is likely to be influential precisely because it occurs as part of a religious rite. The ban on such endorsements should remain, but the IRS needs to have clearer standards for determining when a preacher has crossed the line. ... In a 2007 Supreme Court decision interpreting federal election law, Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. wrote that a political advertisement should be construed as an endorsement only if it is susceptible of no reasonable interpretation other than as an appeal to vote for or against a specific candidate. That should be the test for a sermon as well. The IRS should adopt such a standard, and then vigorously enforce it. An editorial from the Los Angeles Times.

Does GOP now stand for the Grand Old Peace party? Youd think so if you listen to many Republican conservative talkers, pundits, and nervous politicians holding their fingers up to the wind, then holding up a certain finger to the White House. There has been a shift in the way the Republican Party traditionally conducts its foreign policy business. The question is whether its substantive or greatly bloated due to a polarizing President with a D in front of his party affiliation in the White House. President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry needed to expertly tweak international and American public opinion to build support for a limited strike on Syria to send a message about the illegal use of chemical weapons. Instead, Obama and Kerry looked like they were politically twerking with the same response from their international and domestic audiences as Miley Cyrus got from the audience watching the Music Video Awards. Only this time Russian President Vladimir Putin is singing the tune. Polls have shown support for the strike steadily plummeting. The most telling was a Gallup Poll that found support for military action in Syria low in contrast to past conflicts. But the polls most shocking part was the partisan and ideological breakdown. Democrats favored it 45 to 43 percent and Republicans opposed it 58 to 31 percent. Liberals opposed it 51 to 37 percent while conservatives opposed it 59 to 33 percent Conservatives oppose a military action more than liberals? Has you-knowwhat frozen over? The Democrat/liberal numbers arent surprising. Democratic liberals have often separated from their own party on war issues, even if it meant losing future elections, their agenda and even influence in the courts. Liberals bailed on LBJ and Hubert Humphrey, contributing to Richard Nixons 1968 victory which gave him a chance to start transforming the judiciary, bureaucracy and policies. Some Democrats saw little difference in the parties in 2000 so they voted for Ralph Nader over Al Gore and, with help from the Supreme Court, helped elect George W. Bush President. P.S.: Bush didnt turn out to be the same as a Democrat. Republicans had a strong isolation list strain in the early 20th century, but since the mid-50s they touted themselves as the party strong on national security and protecting Americas world image. Some of todays Republican opposition is due to not wanting to spend the money and gen uinely rejecting neocon type military operations. But rank partisanship also plays a role in the huge number of GOPers rejection of a military action that they would have likely backed if a President with an R affiliation was seeking it. Partisanship 101: Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions: I do believe if President Bush had told Bashar Assad You dont use those chemical weapons or youre gonna be sorry, were coming after you, and thisll be a consequence you will not want to bear,I dont believe he would have use d it. Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer told conservative talker Hew Hewett that he wasnt act ually opposed to hitting Syria but wasnt supportin g Obamas strategy The reason Im for staying out is because this president doesnt know what hes doing. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell whos re-election battle is again st a Tea Party opponent on the right and a strong Democrat on the left leaked an advance copy of his Senate speech saying hed vote no on Syria. It was a speech that insisted he was no isolationalist, but basically declared Obama too incompetent to mount an operation that McConnell claimed was too weak anyway. He wan ted it both ways. No one will ever confuse McConnell with the Senates great former Republican leaders who focused on bigger things than their own political scalps. So should the new Republican Partys slogan be Give Peace a Chance? No. Perhaps it should be: Give the Consistency of Your Past Principles a Chance.

Fansler said Lake Placid has had a few child sexual assault cases and hadnt had one in many months, but it has been a little while since hes seen a case with such an age difference.

As for the local job mark et, the 2011 Avon Park H igh School graduate said t heres not a lot in Highlands C ounty. Shes talked to several p ossible employers, but n othing has jelled. Velez said s he cant commute outside t he county because of her b aby. Paustian said his recently e arned online masters in b usiness administration hasn t given him an edge yet in f inancial management jobs. Thats why I went through all the fun and games to get it, Paustian said. Most employers are looking for younger people, said the 49-year-old veteran who saw mostly people his age at the job fair. He also said salaries in Highlands and other parts of central Florida are not high enough to make a reasonable living. Theres always something out there. Youve got to keep looking to keep the bill collectors happy, Paustian said. Snyder said most jobs are asking for people to work for at or slightly above the $7.79-per-hour minimum wage. Nobody can live on that, Snyder said. However, she gives kudos to Heartland Workforce for providing Internet access, job availability tips and jobrelated training for job seekers. And she said her heart goes out to everyone who is looking. God is helping me through this, Snyder said. I have given my problem to God. I will find a job when its needed. Prospective employers included corrections and law enforcement agencies; hospitality employers such as Chateau lan and Olympic Restaurant; retail such as Marshalls and Books-AMillion and Lowes; service industries such as UPS and Edward Jones, as well as health field providers such as Positive Medical Transport and The Palms of Sebring. Maria Pazos and Kathy Perry with Lykes Bros. Inc. said the company is trying to fill mechanic, labor, and clerical positions, as well as a new position for a ranch manager at Silver Lakes Preserve an 1,876-acre hunting preserve near LaBelle. The company hires yearround, Perry said, (but) this is the most openings weve had in a long time. Crystal Moore, with Highlands County Sheriffs Office human resources, said the agency is looking for a cook, a nurse and a dispatc her. Former call personnel from Agero which has a local roadside assistance ca ll center have helped swel l their ranks since the Sheriffs Office started dispatching police, fire and emergency medical service s, said Kathy Fluharty, human resources administrator. Meanwhile, retailers like Marshalls and Books-AMillion want people who ca n be flexible, both in hours and job tasks. Karen Alexander and Audra Brown, managers at Marshalls, said the compan y may need five or six more people for the holiday season. The hardest thing for them is to find people who can work nights, weekends or holidays because of family obligations. Nadine Sombrio, BooksA-Million general manager said she needs up to 10 peo ple this season as booksellers and baristas,. She wants them crosstrained so they can promote books, coffee and gift cards as well as help customers find the books they want. Thats what I want to do with them, Sambrio said.

The school board voted in favor of a total tax rate of $7.27 per every $ 1,000 of taxable property value in t he county, compared with last years c ombined rate of $7.70 per $1,000. The budget document states that a h omeowner with a $125,000 home and a $25,000 homestead exemption w ould pay $727 in annual school dist rict taxes in the coming fiscal year. In total, school district taxes are e xpected to bring in $33.6 million: $23.2 million from district s chool property tax of $5.02 per every $ 1,000 in taxable value. $3.45 million in district discret ionary tax of 75 cents per every $ 1,000 in taxable value. $6.92 million in district capital i mprovement tax of $1.50 per every $ 1,000 in taxable value. Averyt said the school board only h as discretion capital improvement tax r ate, and at that, over only $1.50 of t he $2 capital improvement rate 50 c ents of it is determined by the state. The district once had $2 million a nnually to spend on 18 facilities and t he main offices. Now its $250,000. Ideally, the district would buy 10 n ew buses per year to stay ahead of t he mileage racked up by the fleet of 1 00 buses, Averyt said. Weve bought no new buses in three years, Averyt said. Buses already are being rotated through the routes to keep each one from clocking too many miles, he said. Eventually, the district may have to dip into the general fund for buses, Averyt said, but that would take away from salary and benefits. For now, the budget makes up for any losses by using existing fund balances, transferred funds and both state and federal funding. The district plans to put 8 percent of the general fund toward purchased services and 4 percent for utilities and energy. Finally, 3.5 percent plans to pay for materials and the remaining 1.5 percent will cover equipment and other needs. The school district hopes to have $8.83 million over the coming year for federal food programs, including free and reduced-price meals. While $6.19 million of that would be direct reimbursement, another $2.06 million comes from U.S. Department of Agriculture commodities, food service supplements, interest and food service sales. The district also has $578,324 left over from the current years food service budget. Capital improvement taxes and other revenues will give the school district a boost of $7.01 million, which when combined with $1.78 million in the capital improvement fund will give the district $8.8 million for improvements, a drop of approximately $3 million from last years budget. The district allocated $8.42 million in the 2012-13 fiscal year for land, renovations, software and fund transfers. For the 2013-14 budget, the budget covers those same needs, as well as site improvements and equipment. The district has also allocated $5.71 million in saved funds, transfers and revenue toward debt service, which when added with the current fund balance should give the district $6.7 million to pay debts in the coming year. The 2013-14 fiscal year budget states that Highlands18 public schools have a combined 12,229 students, 73 percent of which qualify for free or reduced-price meals. The district counts 6,061 students in its 10 elementary schools, 2,804 in four middle schools, 3,285 in three high schools and 79 in the districts homebound, disability, jail, alternative and virtual school programs. Board members and the public had no questions for Averyt or Superintendent Wally Cox. Averyt, breathing a sigh of relief, told board members he planned to start immediately on the 2014-15 fiscal year budget, since putting together this budget took several months to complete.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Avon P ark head coach Shane W irries didnt have to w orry too much about his t eamsfocus Tuesday night d uring the Lady Devils t hree-set sweep of visiting F rostproof. The team has battled i nconsistency early on this s eason, though their talent h ad overcome it for the m ost part. And yet, in the days leadi ng up to the Tuesday night d istrict contest, Wirries was c onfident yet wary. It should be a win for u s, but well just have to s ee which team shows up, h e had said. What showed up was a t eam seeming to have a bett er grasp at keeping their f ocus, getting up early and m aintaining their level of p lay. It was strong serving e arly that propelled the D evils, with OTaysha Smith and Imani Tate rocketing sharp serves that were giving the Lady Bulldogs fits. And when Frostproof was able to settle in with their serve receive, heavy hitting from Marina Torres, Briana Roque, Hailey Hutzinger and Tate, set up by Smith assists, that allowed Avon Park to win the opening set in dominant fashion, 25-6. Avon Park, Lake Placid, Sebring all notch three-set wins I thought Id read every definitive book out there on bass fishing but one of my customers, Dave, brought me a copy of Bob Underwoods book Lunker, and I cant believe I missed reading it. Published in 1975, this particular book is pretty dogeared, with the cover nearly gone, and it has undoubtedly been read many times by many people. Bob Underwood spent over 1,700 hours underwater studying bass and their behavior, as well as a lifetime of bass fishing, and his book is filled with some interesting observations and concepts. I think one of the most interesting findings that he shares in his book is the importance of cover to a bass. In fact, he rates cover as the most important thing there is to a bass more important than water temperature, depth and even food. Cover takes priority over everything else. Availability of food places second while proximity to deep water places third. Temperature rates low in priority. Cover must be such as to allow the bass to hide his head (at least) when frightened. This rule is absolute, Underwood shares in his first chapter. He then goes on to say light does not bother the eyes of a bass. The fact that he prefers cover and depth has nothing to do with any harmful or painful effect of light on the eyes. As an interesting sidenote, he also believes that bass are near-sighted, and that although he believes color to be a strong factor, its importance quickly fades when a lure is beyond three feet from the bass. Being near-sighted forces the bass to focus on size and shape, combined with action to determine if he wants to pursue it. Ive often wondered about the sound of an electric motor, and what if any impact it may have on nearby bass, particularly when Im flippinthe reeds in Istokpoga. According to Bobs observations underwater, an electric motor doesnt bother ba ss at all. He indicated that while underwater he observed bass within a few feet of a working electric motor that showed absolutely no concern. But scrape the bottom of the boat and youll have every bass within 100 feet quickly facing in the direction of the sound and fully prepared to seek cover. When not frightened, bass will spend most of their time over cover. Bottom to the bass appears to mean the top of the cover Should they sense danger or be actively feeding using the ambush tactic, they will submerge into this cover preparing to attack their prey. After years of research both above and below the surface, Underwood stronge st belief was the importance of action. Although he claims color is important too, the action of a lure, more than any other factor contributed to substantially more strikes Theres no better teacher than being on the water, but books like Bob Underwoods Lunker can be a good source of information when youre not fishing.

By BRITTANYWHITTINGTONNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Coming back f rom their hard-fought, fives et loss in DeSoto last week, t he Lady Blue Streaks looked t o redeem themselves against H ardee at home Tuesday. The home team was able to s weep the Wildcats in three a nd called it an early night. Sebring started off strong with a quick jump start 4-0 lead after a Hannah Gotch kill. This allowed Maci Harris to continue her service run and was able to serve an ace tacking on another point for the Streaks. Lady Streaks cruise past Cats See STREAKS, Page B4 By HANNAH WALLER News-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID Justice was served, literally, on the volleyball court Tuesday as the Lady Dragons swept the Mulberry Panthers right off the floor with a final score of 3-0. This game marked the second District 94Awin for the Lady Dragons, with hopefully many more to come. Its good to be off with a 2-0 start in the district, said head coach Charlotte Clanton-Bauder. The Dragons started off with service and made a quick first point with a kill by Jacalyn Baldwin. Three more points for the Lady Dragons would follow before Mulberry would get the ball back. But it was only for a short while, before Lake Placid would regain possession, making the score 5-1. The first service error of many, however, soon caused the Lady Dragons to hand the ball back over to the Panthers. We missed way too many serves, Bauder said after the match. Lucky thing for the Dragons that they played well everywhere else on the court, and it wasnt long before several combination plays, many with Baldwin, Bella Caraballo and Breauna Corley along the frontline, finished out their first set with a score of 25-10. The second set wasnt quite as quick and to the point as the first. Though the first point went to the Panthers due to an error by the Dragons, a kill by Corley quickly tied Dragons power past Panthers See LP, Page B4

The lake water level is up c onsiderably over two m onths ago and the smaller b ass are concentrated in the n ewly flooded grass and b rush along the shoreline. The water is clear in most a reas with the exception of Little Lake Jackson, where the water is considerably darker. Friday, Sept. 6 Tournament We only had three boats show up last Friday for the Lake Glenada tournament. Not sure why since this lake typically yields much bigger fish, but it didnt seem to matter to Dwight Ameling, who along with his partner, Bob Stanley took first place with three bass weighing well over 10 pounds. Dwight had a nice 7 pounder that he caught on his fourth cast of the day on a spinnerbait. In only three tournaments weve had two fish weigh in at over 7 pounds on Lake Glenada, while at Lake Jackson, in nine tournaments, weve had two fish weighing in at over 5 pounds. With three boats its winner take all. Congratulations Dwight and Bob! Friday, Sept. 13, will be my 65th birthday and since I havent won a tournament yet on Lake Glenada, Im counting on that being my lucky day. Both tournaments were a lot of fun and were looking forward to seeing some new faces join us as we fish this weeks tournaments. Come on out and join us. Its only $20, three-fish limit and we only fish from 7:30 a.m. to Noon. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

It has often been after easy w ins like this that the ladies i n red would often then settle i nto a comfort zone and a llow their opponent to r etake momentum. But that wasnt the case t his night, as the second set s aw a team determined to c ontinue itshigh level of p lay. Libero Maria Tataris kept t he back-line defense rolling, a long with Torres and Alexis W illiams, and Williams j oined in with some big hitt ing at the net as well. The Devils surged out to a nother big lead and kept b uilding it up, leading 23-9 a nd looking to hold F rostproof in the single digits y et again. Aslight lapse in focus, h owever, saw an inadvertant n et violation to give the Lady B ulldogs their 10th point b efore Avon Park finished off t he 25-11 win. Alittle bit of that relaxa tion did creep back in duri ng what was the third and f inal set, though that could w ell have been expected after t he two lopsided wins. But the Devils didnt let it g o too far, regrouping and s tepping up when needed to f or a 25-18, match-clinching w in to keep Avon Park undef eated and tied for the top s pot in the District 9-4A s tandings. The Lady Devils hosted S ebring Thursday night in the a lways intense county rivalry, a nd then travel to Lake P lacid, their district col eader, Tuesday for a crucial s howdown. Two key match-ups that s hould certainly help Avon P ark keep itsfocus. An error gave Hardee their f irst point of the game, but a q uick kill by Gotch ended the s ide and made the score 6-1. Cailyn Webb soon went b ack to serve and was able to s erve up an ace which b rought the score to 11-3, a lso forcing the Wildcats to c all their first time out of the s et. The time out did not slow t he Streaks one bit, with yet a nother Gotch kill putting S ebring up 22-10. Hardee called their second a nd final time out of the set, but was still unable to slow Sebring with the set finishing 25-10. The Wildcats started with the serve in the second set, but came up short with a Samantha Allison kill to give the Blue Streaks possession of the ball. Jordan Hinkle went back to serve and served an ace, adding another point to the scoreboard. The Lady Blue Streaks went on an 8-5 run and forced the Lady Cats to call their first time out of this particular set. This time out seemed to have shifted momentum in favor of Hardee as they were able to close the Streaks lead to just a two point difference. But a pair of kills by Hinkle extended the lead to four to force Hardee to try to shift momentum by calling their second time out. No damage was done and the Blue Streaks finished the set 25-16. The Lady Streaks made an explosive run on the Cats in what would be the final set, starting out at 9-4 and causing Hardee to call an early time out. It was easy to tell that Sebring was ready to close up shop and end the night going on a 7-5 run with a kill by setter Lindsey Whittington bringing the score up to 17-9. Another kill by Webb put the Streaks up 21-12 and they went on another short run finishing the set and game at 25-13. It was a key win that got the ladies in blue into the win column of the District 11-5A standings. Sebring took a short road trip north to battle their cou nty rival Red Devils in Avon Park on Thursday.

Lake Placid was still strugg ling with serves, but quickly g ot possession again with a b lock by Corley. Asix-point run followed w ith more kills by Corley a nd Carabello, giving the L ady Dragons a comfortable l ead of 8-2. But the Panthers wasted no t ime putting the pressure b ack on the Dragons, shrinki ng the gap to make the score 9 -6. Keeping the crowd on the e dge of their seats, points w ent back and forth between t he two teams before reaching a 21-21 tie. It was as if a light switched on for Lake Placid, who finally shifted into gear and finished out the set quickly with a score of 2522. Not wanting a recap of the set before, the Lady Dragons started the third set off strong with a quick lead of 6-1, thanks in part to two aces by Joanna Sanchez. Once again the Lady Dragons let the Lady Panthers get a little too close for comfort, with a score of 8-7, before going on a few good runs with kills by Carabello, Baldwin and Tiffani Broder. With the score now sitting at 19-10, Lake Placid was ready to finish up. And finish they did, with a six-point run to end out the game with a bang, making the final score 25-10. Though happy with the Lady Dragonsplay overall on the night, coach Bauder still expects more from the girls. I think sometimes they play down to the level of their opponents, Bauder said. We did that at times tonight, but Im happy with the win. Lake Placid looked to make it 3-0 as they traveled to Frostproof Thursday night, before the big early-season matchup with fellow district front runner Avon Park Tuesday.

Special to the News-SunThe new self help group for people in the local community who have had a stroke and are living with the effects has started. The purpose of the group is to provide an informal, confidential space to share experiences, support and information. Meetings will feature speakers, occasional outings and exercise. The meeting place will be at the Sebring Christian Church, 4514 Hammock Road, from 1-2:30 p.m. The group meets twice a month on the first and third Tuesdays. The first Tuesday will be dedicated to a guest speaker who will facilitate the meeting. Printed information from the National Stroke Association will be distributed. The third Tuesdays will be reserved for movement therapy. Therapists adapted to working with people affected from stroke will take the group through different techniques of exercises depending on their ability to participate. Also on the third Tuesdays, students from Azure College will be taking blood pressure readings and pulse rates for those interested. On Tuesday Music in Motion will be demonstrated by Belinda Wright, Sunshine Ambassador CNA/HHAwith Ace Homecare. Joining Wright will be Carol Kelly, MSEd., RN and Rebecca Moore, Sunshine Ambassador CNA/HHA, both also from ACE Homecare. Music influences human behavior by affecting the brain and subsequently other bodily structures in ways that are observable, identifiable, measurable and predictable, thereby providing the necessary foundation for its use in treatment procedures. Recent studies have examined the effect of music therapy on stroke patients, when combined with traditional therapy. One study found the incorporation of music with therapeutic upper extremity exercises gave patients more positive emotional effects than exercise alone. Current research shows that when music therapy is used in conjunction with traditional therapy, it improves rates of recovery and emotional and social deficits resulting from stroke. Other studies reveal that participants gained not only more flexibility and wider range of motion, but an increased frequency and quality of social interactions and positive mood. It is not necessary to have music ability to benefit from music therapy. The new Stroke Recovery Group is through H.A.L.L.O (Handicapped Americans Love of Life Organization). To be on thelist for notification of the meetings and guest speakers, call HALLO at 385-1196, email halloinc@embarqmail.com, or write H.A.L.L.O., P.O. Box 7082, Sebring, FL33872. DR.

Ive tried predn isone, Celebrex, ibuprof en, Vicodin, physical thera py, chiropractors, massage, r eiki, acupuncture, prayer w ork, laser and two surgeri es on my neck. Nothing h elps. Please, any ideas? D .C., San Diego, Calif. Answer: Assuming your d iet is good, Id try yoga n ext. I hear you thinking, I c ant even sit without pain, w hy should I twist myself i nto a knot? Because r esearch proves yoga can h elp certain types of neck a nd back pain, headaches, m igraines, anxiety, high b lood pressure and osteop orosis. Since youve tried addict ive narcotics, anti-inflamm atories, steroids, surgery a nd whatever else, spending t housands of dollars and s uffering endlessly, I think y ogas worth a shot. It has n o side effects other than m aking you feel refreshed, s ort of like a human breath m int. In a 2012 German study, r esearchers saw how a ninew eek yoga program helped p articipants with chronic n eck pain. Yoga has been a round for centuries, and t heres no harm so long as y ou dont push your body p ast its limits, but in your c ase, I would still get your p hysician and chiropract ors blessings. And speaking of blessi ngs Ive never associated a religious connotation with yoga, its about stretching and breathing. Besides, youll be the life of the party if you can turn yourself into a human pretzel. If your hips are tight, it may be the result of inflexibility, and it can subsequently cause your knee joint to become misaligned with the other bones in your leg, causing pain throughout the leg. Sciatica is a rather common condition in which lower back pain extends into one or both legs, by way of the sciatic nerve. AJanuary 2013 study demonstrated that certain asanas or yoga poses relieved symptoms of sciatica including pain, rigidity and walking. Flexibility helps your posture, and the strength that yoga builds in your bones and muscles may reduce your odds for arthritis. Asystematic review was performed earlier this year in New Zealand; evidence showed regular yoga practice might alleviate pain caused by musculoskeletal disorders. What about your bones? Different yoga poses and transitions create mild stress on your bones, which causes the bone to become denser (and stronger!) in order to balance out this stress. Your mind benefits too. A2012 study performed in London showed yoga and meditation significantly reduced anxiety and blood pressure and improved mood. That occurs by increasing happy serotonin levels, while lowering cortisol, a stress hormone. Choose classes carefully. When I walked into my first yoga class, it was 105 degrees! Its called Bikram yoga, or sometimes hot yoga. What a nightmare for me; I despise heat. I could not get out of there fast enough. So call in advance and ask about the class you want to take. Classes labeled restorative or yin are gentle, and cool, also those labeled Vinyasa or Hatha are also fairly easy, at least for me. Start out slowly and with your doctors permission since youve had surgeries. Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

PLACESTOWORSHIP In a previous article, we emphas ized the challenge and wisdom f rom Romans 12:16 Do not be w ise in your own opinion. We then d rew great lessons from Nadab and A bihu, the elders of Israel, Naaman, a nd Jeroboam. Romans 15:4 tells us t hese examples will teach us if we h eed the lessons. Jesus encountered many situat ions where human wisdom/opini ons became a hindrance to unders tanding Truth. Once again the M essiah told the disciples He must g o to Jerusalem, suffer many things, b e killed and be raised the third day. ( Matthew 16:21) This would never h appen according to Peter! Jesus t urned to Peter and said, Get b ehind Me, Satan! You are an o ffense to Me, for you are not m indful of the things of God, but t he things of men (Matthew 1 6:23). The things of men? The c omic Close To Home showed it perfectly: Two are having a conversation in front of a building, Were trying to attract more young people, so we changed our name. The sign on the building? The First Church of the Holy Playstation. The things of men are entertainment and churches of your choice but the things of God are the power of the gospel (Romans 1:16) and the one faith, one body. (Ephesians 4:4-6) The religious leaders in the time of Christ were no match for His simple teaching.. The wisdom of the Pharisees was to set themselves up as the model and standard for all religious teaching. Modern day translation: You cannot teach the Bible because you do not have a PhD or DD or you have not graduated from our college or seminary. When Paul was in Caesarea to speak in his own defense, he made the confession, Indeed, I myself thought I must do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth (Acts 26:9). Pauls opinions, though false, led him to try to destroy the church, the body of Christ. His conversion, new birth, recorded in Acts 9 and 22, and his life of service in the kingdom, declared the weakness of human wisdom and the power of Divine wisdom when Paul proclaimed, I am what I am by the grace of God! All that he obtained by human wisdom/opinion he counted as rubbish. (Philippians 3:8) Perhaps there is no clearer example of the folly of human wisdom/opinion than Romans 1:1832. Paul states that the creation of the world shows the attributes of Jehovah, and therefore, men are without excuse, but although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools Romans 1:21, 22). What was the fruit that evidenced they became fools? Read on! For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the women, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due (verses 26,27). The Holy Spirit through Paul continued a long list of fruits of human opinion! Now back to some solid, sensible ground. Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your wa ys acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths (Proverbs 3:5, 6). This is an ageless admonition. Isra el needed that Divine wisdom. In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes (Judges 21:25). Today is also in desperate need of this wisdom with it 43,000-plus denominations, creeds and doctrin es of men. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their ow n desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables (2 Timothy 4:3, 4).

Continued from page B6 Awoman from southern A labama went into the local n ewspaper office to see that t he obituary for her recently d eceased husband was publ ished. The obituary editor i nformed her that the fee f or the obituary was 50 c ents per word. She paused, r eflected, and then said, Well, have it read, Billy B ob died. Amused at the womans t hrift, the editor said, Sorry, Maam, but there is a seven-word minimum on a ll obituaries. The widow was only a l ittle flustered, but she t hought things over for a f ew moments. Finally she r esponded to the editor, In t hat case, put down, Billy B ob died. 1983 pickup for s ale. I wonder who or what w as the greatest priority to t he widow? Was it her husb and, or was it the pickup? E ach of us lead busy lives s ome busier than others. N evertheless, we each crea te priorities in our lives t hat take precedence over a ll other matters. To some, t heir jobs fill the position o f highest priority. To othe rs, their families fill that r ole. Still, to others, money, p ower, or some other mater ial influence always seems t o come first. Jesus taught that of all t he priorities we may have i n this world, we must a lways place Him at the top of the list. That means that Jesus must take precedent over everyone and everything in our lives. That may not always be the easiest thing to do, but it will always be the right thing to do. In Matthew 10:34-38, Jesus said, Do not think that I came to bring peace on the earth; I did not come to bring peace, but a sword. For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a mans enemies will be the members of his household. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. This passage teaches a very fundamental lesson: If you place Jesus above all others, you may suffer the alienation or loss of all others. Not everyone is willing to accept this difficult teaching, but those who wish to be worthy in the eyes of Jesus will. Even at my young age, because of the priority that Jesus plays in my life and the respect that I have for the Bible as the inspired word of God, I have suffered the alienation and/or loss of several friends and family members. I did not enjoy it, and it grieves my heart to this day, but I still must serve Jesus Christ as the Lord and Master of my life. Everyone and everything else must come second. The decisions of life are not always easy, and when Jesus becomes your greatest priority, life can become even harder in some ways. But, when we put Him first, Jesus promises us eternal rewards that will far outweigh the sufferings of this life. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

By DAVID ROONEY The Hollywood ReporterLOS ANGELES Blue C aprice is a disturbing, m asterfully controlled t hriller based on the 2002 s niper attacks in the W ashington, D.C., suburbs. T he national discussion of m ass shootings and gun cont rol stands to heighten the i mpact of director Alexandre M oorshead-turning debut, w hich is driven by performa nces of brooding intensity f rom Isaiah Washington and T equan Richmond. Following a grainy mont age of news and surveill ance video accompanied by t raumatized 911 calls reporti ng shootings in the D.C. a rea, the story opens amid t he lush island vegetation of A ntigua in the Caribbean. A t eenage boy, Lee ( Richmond), watches in m ute fury as his mother l eaves their home to take w ork elsewhere, saying s hell be back for him. But a s her absence stretches on, L ee grows bored, frustrated a nd then desperate, seemingl y attempting to drown hims elf in the rough surf. He is rescued and taken in b y John (Washington), a visi ting American whose three y oung daughters have been r emoved from their country i n violation of a custody a greement. With no word f rom Lees mother, John e ventually takes him back to T acoma, Wash. From early in their relat ionship, John begins drilling h is life-is-unfair views into L ee, whose absence of a f ather figure renders him h ighly susceptible to the o lder mans influence. The b ottomless pit of Johns a nger becomes steadily more a pparent back in the U.S., as h e takes Lee on a tour of the m iddle-class suburban neighb orhood of his former life. H e talks of the evil that lives t here, the ghosts left behind, a nd the vampires like his exwife, who sucked him dry. Since their return from Antigua, she has taken out a restraining order against him and removed their children to parts unknown. This gnaws at him like a cancer. When Lee is taken along with John and his Army buddy Ray (Tim Blake Nelson) to let off steam with some target practice in the woods, he reveals himself to be a natural with a gun. Watching the boys face the first time a semi-automatic widow-maker is placed in his hands is especially disquieting in light of recent events. After Johns erratic behavior gets them kicked out by his girlfriend (Cassandra Freeman), they end up staying with Ray and his equally trashy partner Jamie (Joey Lauren Adams), providing access to Rays arsenal of firearms. Some of the films most powerful scenes are brutal interludes in which John subjects his young protege to various tests, leaving him tied to a tree overnight in the woods or forcing him to fight in a systematic campaign to harden the boy and break his moral resistance. Demanding proof of Lees love and gratitude, John instructs him to shoot a woman who testified against him during the divorce proceedings. That initiation kick-starts the escalating chain of violence that leads them to the D.C. area, where John has traced his estranged family. Showing refreshing faith in the audiences ability to connect the dots, Moors employs frequent narrative ellipses and nonlinear editing to strong effect. The film expertly manipulates mood and atmosphere with a muscular sound design that juggles dense textures, uneasy silences, a suspenseful score and striking classical music choices. Visually, too, the work is impressive, with cinematographer Brian OCarrolls nighttime shots of the Caprice cruising along the Beltway planting an ominous sense of dread. The randomness of the Beltway killing spree shocked America a decade ago but recedes from the national memory with every new mass shooting. Revisiting that episode, the filmmakers have made a smart, sobering movie that speculates with compelling detachment on how the abhorrent urge to take innocent lives might evolve. Rating: R (disturbing violent content, language and brief drug use) Running time: 93 minutes Review: (of 4) DearAbby: Now that C alifornia law prohibits d rivers from using cellp hones and texting while d riving, an additional issue n eeds to be addressed and a cted upon. Bicyclists are s upposed to abide by the v ehicle codes, too, but they r arely do and that includes n ot wearing protective gear. Im now seeing people on b ikes texting, talking while r iding and routinely ignoring s top signs. Disappointingly, I h ave never seen a single r ider pulled over or ticketed f or doing this. How many lives must be d estroyed or lost before the p olice start enforcing penalt ies for the danger these peop le cause to others? Caring Reader, Sacramento, Calif. DearCaring Reader: Y oure asking something I h ave been asking myself for s ome time. I understand that t eenagers may think theyre i mmortal as they whiz along t he streets, but the adults I s ee weaving in and out and i gnoring stop signs are old e nough to know better. Many cities promote bicyc ling as a way to mitigate t raffic congestion and e ncourage a healthier, more a ctive lifestyle. Police may i gnore the infractions b ecause they have more serio us crimes to attend to. Or p erhaps they have been i nstructed to do so. (If memb ers of law enforcement w ould like to address this, I d love to hear from you.) While Im on the subject o f cyclists, I should mention m y own concern about riders w ho wear dark clothing and ride after dark. Not all neighborhoods are well lit, and I have seen near misses because of it. Although dark colors are fashionable, wouldnt it make sense for people who ride at night to wear jackets with reversible linings in a lighter color? (I have seen a few with fluorescent trim, but there havent been many.) And if drivers are pulled over for broken or missing headlights or taillights, shouldnt the same be true for bicyclists? DearAbby: My son serves on a ship in the Navy in an area known for terrorism. People who know this tell me how safe his ship is, how strong the U.S. military is, etc. Please, people, when I (or anyone else who has a family member in the military) ask for prayers or express concern, do not offer these platitudes. Understand that our fears are real, and so are our tears. Offer a hug, a handsqueeze, say you will pray for us but understand that until our loved ones are back on U.S. soil, our fears and tension wont lessen. Unless you have been in our shoes, you cant know how we feel when we watch the news because we have no true idea of what is going on. Our military family members cant tell us, and often we have no (or limited) contact with them. I cry alone often. I am proud of my son for his service and even encouraged it, but this is a rough time for me and others who are in this situation. Military Mother DearMilitary Mother: Thank you for writing. Many people are uncomfortable when they encounter an emotional situation and dont know what to say. Their impulse is to make it better, not realizing that sometimes a gesture is more eloquent than words can be. I agree with you that when a loved one is in harms way, it is an emotional rollercoaster ride for all concerned the parents, the siblings, the spouses and the children of our servicemen and women.

Page B10 News-SunFriday, September 13, 2013 www.newssun.com Living Sub Headl PlanningPitfall ChaosHow to avoid it: Start planning at least four to six weeks in advance; some hot spots book six months in advance. Keep in mind shipping times from online sites. Make a list of all party supplies, and a separate list of food supplies to ensure you arent looking for something at the last minute. Hire a baby-sitter to help manage the kids or recruit relatives to help supervise. When you start socializing, the party may start falling apart. Have a backup plan if an activity flops or gets rained out. Keep the games simple and age appropriate. Make a schedule of how you expect the party to unfold. For very young children, an hour-long party is plenty. For grade-schoolers, keep it to two to three hours. Avoid your childs nap time at all cost. Make calls to follow up with parents who do not RSVP(and many do not), so you have an accurate head count. If the kids are engaged and having fun, skip opening presents for the crowd, which can slow down a party. Best bets: New twists on old favorites: Dress-up relay races, hot potato (for a sports theme toss tennis balls). Backyard scavenger hunts can be very popular. And, in the summertime, go crazy with water: Water painting, sprinklers, water balloon toss and fishing in wading pools. Update musical chairs with popular High School Musical or Hannah Montana soundtracks. Money saving tip: Search online for games to play with everyday objects. Award dollar-store prizes. EntertainmentPitfall Scary clownHow to avoid it Tell entertainers to ditch makeup, which can scare toddlers and even some preschoolers. Dont force timid guests to participate in activities such as facepainting. Check out the entertainers portfolio and call references. Sign a contract and find out who will step in if your entertainer gets sick. Avoid entertainment that forces young children to wait for a long time for a turn. Or offer activities they can do while waiting. Manage the line. Make sure every child gets a turn, even the shy ones, who tend to get elbowed out of line. Find out exactly what the entertainer includes in his or her fee. How many children will they accommodate? Do they include setup and cleanup time in their total time? According to St. Louis etiquette expert Maria Everding, if the entertainer comes from a charity or nonprofit organization, a tip is appropriate. If the entertainer is running an independent business and has a set fee, he or she should not be tipped. If hiring a petting zoo, warn parents in advance in case their children have allergies and keep antibacterial lotions handy. Best bets: The most popular party entertainers book far in advance, so call early if you have your heart set on a specific person. Among the most popular entertainers for hire: storytellers, musicians, face-painters, balloon sculptors, clowns, characters such as princesses, petting zoos, snake handlers and magicians. In the summer, ice cream truck rentals are a big hit. Money saving tip: Hire a high school student or recruit another parent who can paint faces, act out a skit or do simple magic tricks. Rather than booking a party at a studio, see if you can get a dance teacher, cheerleader or karate instructor to give a group lesson at home.FoodPitfall Sugar crashHow to avoid it: Consider mini-cupcakes instead of cake to control portion size. Offer some non-sugary snacks, such as pretzels, fresh veggies and fruit. Let kids assemble their own food, such as sandwiches, fruit salads or yogurt with mix-ins. Incorporating cooking or assembling a snack into the party activities kills two birds with one stone. Order pizza. Or buy frozen chicken nuggets in bulk. Avoid any possible allergens, such as nuts.
