By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Technology has changed the way everyone lives; through everevolving technology, people have learned to live, work and play easier and more efficiently. The world of education has also grown and changed thanks to electronic innovations. School systems have come leaps and bounds from where they were even less than a decade ago, all with the help of technology. Highlands County classrooms have been equipped with a number of technological tools over the past decade including Smart Boards, Apple iPads and iPods, video systems and Internet connections. Though nearly every classroom in the district uses some or all of these tools to enlighten and educate the young minds, at least one classroom has taken an extra step.

Charges range from rioting, introduction of contraband, grand theft, burglary, felony criminal mischief, petit theft, tampering with a coin operated device and theft of a controlled substance. Damage caused by the rioting juveniles between 16-18 years old has been estimated at $350,000 by Mark Frederick Magrini, maint enance director for G4S, the company that operates the facility for the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice.

Council members will address the purchasing departments bids again during the 6 p.m. meeting at Sebring City Hall. The janitorial services bid died at the last meeting after John Clark and Scott Stanley voted to go with the low bidder, while Andrew Fells and Bud Whitlock voted in favor of hiring two part-time employees to do the cleaning work for five city buildings. John Griffin was absent at the last meeting, and it is hoped he will serve as the tiebreaker on Tuesday.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The Kissimmee Valley Archaeological and Historic Conservancy's Speaker Series will present Butch Wilson, director of the Clewiston Museum, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 19, in Building B, Room 101, at the South Florida State College Highlands Campus. Wilson will present the program, Mayaimis People of Lake Okeechobee. The public is invited at no cost. The Mayaimis people were part of the Glades Culture, which existed from 500 B.C.E. until shortly after European contact and inhabited the Lake Okeechobee and Kissimmee Valley regions. Asixth-generation Floridian, Wilson grew up on the southern shores of Lake Okeechobee and enjoyed stories by his greatgrandmother, grandparents, and other Glades pioneers about the history of the area. Wilson will review several of the archaeological digs around Lake Okeechobee, provide interpretation, display artifacts, and recall some of the tall tales the old-timers told him about these ancient people. He recounts information from prehistoric days to the terrible 1926 and 1928 hurricanes that wrought havoc and death to the Glades residents living around the lake. Wilson holds a bachelor of arts degree in history from Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn. He worked for U.S. Sugar for 32 years and was a commercial frog hunter and catfisherman. After retiring, he became the director of the Clewiston Museum, which preserves the history of Hendry County.

The proposed annexation a rea is basically a 43-acre s quare with 92 improved p roperties on the north side o f Lake Lelia, bordered on t he north by Ernest E. Sims S treet, the west by South L ake Boulevard and the e ast by Cummings Avenue. Peggy Ogg, supervisor of e lections, said polls will o pen for residents of the c ommunity from 7 a.m. u ntil 7 p.m. that day at the S outh Florida State College l ibrary. Residents didnt have m any questions for the A von Park City Council l ast Wednesday during the s econd of two public meeti ngs on the proposed a nnexation. City Manager Julian Deleon said it has been the councils intention to grow the city. Avon Park has added two square miles to the city limits in the last two years, he said. This has allowed the city to reduced the property tax rates, he said. In accordance with Florida Statute 171, only residents will be allowed to vote on the annexation referendum. People who own property in the area but dont live there will not be allowed to vote on the matter. Deleon said this is the first time the city has annexed any area using a referendum. Advantages to the residents, he said, would be protection under the citys fire and police departments, garbage services, a 25 percent reduction in utility bills and the ability to take grievances to the city council. Annexation of Lacey Hills set for vote Sept. 17 Governor hopeful to speak to Tea PartySEBRING Adrian Wyllie, a candidate for Florida governor, will speak at Tuesdays meeting of The Highlands Tea Party.

Highlands Republicans Community Briefs Continued on A5 www.twitter.com/thenewssun www.facebook.com/newssun By ROD LEWIS News-Sun correspondentIn 1886, Clara Barton t raveled to Europe during t he Franco-Prussian war, and b ecame involved with an o rganization called the I nternational Red Cross. W hen Barton returned to the S tates she founded the A merican Red Cross N ursing Service on Jan. 20, 1 910. Since that time the R ed Cross has become the l argest privately funded h umanitarian organization. While many hear of the R ed Cross providing relief d uring hurricanes, floods, e arthquakes, tornadoes, and o ther disasters all over the w orld, they do not realize t hat the Red Cross is active w herever disasters occur, e ven if they dont make h eadlines. In fact, recently, two Lake P lacid families were helped b y the Red Cross when flood w aters invaded their homes. Two families were being h elped with food and lodgi ng, said Erin Pagn direct or of communications for t he American Red Cross M id-Florida Region. All of t he Red Cross services are p rovided free of charge. The o nly requirement for help f rom the Red Cross is that it m ust be a disaster such as a wild fire, house fire, flood, or something similar. There are several different methods to contact the Red Cross during or after an emergency, and if one cannot contact the Red Cross, the organization may even initiate the contact. Pagn mentioned the Disaster Action Team (DAT) that was in the area earlier this summer when the flooding was at its worst were in the area and monitored 10 additional homes that were affected by the flood and may have needed assistance. They did not, but it is nice to know it was available. The Red Cross also has a great relationship with the fire departments and emergency management, who may alert the Red Cross in times of crisis, Pagn said. In addition to responding to emergencies, the Red Cross is also proactive and has lists of relevant information for emergencies listed on its website. There is also a place to register to let family members know that everyone is safe. One may access the Red Cross from a cell phone by pressing **Red Cross. There is even an app that pinpoints the closest shelter for phones that are GPS enabled. The Red Cross is in many places because of the volunteers. We need volunteers of all types from students to seniors, Pagn stated. We need volunteers in many different areas, including disaster services, health and safety, fundraising, advocacy and even taking a class. The Red Cross also provides counseling for adults and children who have gone through a disaster. In addition to mental health services, they also provide professional nurses who can help with physical needs like prescriptions and other medications, hearing aids and glasses, little things that are needed, but lost during a crisis, said Pagn, and they provide it free of charge for those who need it. The Red Cross may look different than it did in 1910, but the mission is still the same. It continues to help those in need.

So is insanity, lack of sleep, and gaining gray hairs. In my case, I raised two boys. Often they got along about as well as Cain and Abel. On top of that, one of them was incredibly strongwilled. Let me hasten to say they werent awful kids per se; people looking at them would probably have said they were pretty normal. But when you are trying to turn two human beings into civilized adults, trust me, its not easy. God did extend a mercy to me. Neither of my kids were handicapped, mentally or physically. I didnt have the additional burden of dealing with that in the mix. I know parents who have autistic children. One of them is my best friend. Her son, Matthew, keeps her hopping. She jumps through hoops to make sure hes getting things he needs. And on top of that she puts up with me, no small task. I know she struggles sometimes. In my opinion she and her husband are doing a fantastic job raising Matthew. But it takes a lot to be that kind of parent. Especially when your child presents difficulties for others. Another such parent I only know of through a blog post is Kelli Stapleton of Michigan. Kelli has an autistic daughter, Issy. This 14-year-old, to be blunt, is a handful. She can be violent and has sent her mother to the emergency room at least twice. On Sept. 3 Kelli posted on her blog, The Status Woe. She reported on some major setbacks shed had in getting Issy into school. Her frustration and sorrow at the situation rings clearly through her words. This is a parent who is at the end of her rope. Apparently the rope snapped. The same day she posted on her blog of her struggles, Kelli and Issy were found in a van with the windows rolled up and two portable charcoal grills burning inside. Both Kelli and Issy were unconscious. They were rushed to a hospital. The mom is going to be all right, and Issy from the reports Ive read is making a good recovery. Kelli is being charged with attempted murder. Some want her charged with a hate crime. The comments about this situation have generally fallen into two categories. One category is that Kelli is a monster who deserves no sympathy for the unspeakable crime of trying to kill her child. The other is that Kelli is as much a victim as her daughter and deserves prayers and support, not condemnation. I started out in the secon d camp. I cant imagine the depths of despair Kelli found herself in, and Ive been in some pretty dark places. It is possible that in that place, she looked around her world and felt there was only one way ou t. In a twisted way she may even have thought she was doing her daughter a favor by taking her out of a wor ld that seemed against her. But the more I think about it, the more I come back to the fact that in the end, Kelli Stapleton tried to murder her child. Someone who depended on her for protection and help. Someone she loved. We have little sympathy for others who have murdered their children. We tend to dismiss their pleas for understanding. In our society, there are few crimes more heinous than killing your child. So I admit that my sympathy for Kelli has diminished to a certain extent. But it is not entirely gone. I know that parenting a child with normal issues can cause one to consider tearing out their hair. I cant fathom the frustration that comes from dealing with a special needs child especially if you feel alone in the fight. Kelli needs to pay for what she tried to do. But I also hope she gets help for herself. And that Issys situation is the best it can be for her. And that I never find myself in that dark place Kelli was for a few hours earlier this month.

EDITORIALPAGEPOLICY In the past several months I have t hought of a young girl who left a huge i mpression on me, not only when I k new her as a child, but still today. It w as an impression of a life taken way t oo soon and a memory of just how h orribly ugly some people can be. A m emory of how unfair justice is. A m emory that perhaps caused me to be o verprotective of my own children w hen I became a mother. My friend, Kathy, threw shot put w ith me in junior high (your middle s chool in the south) track. She was a n ice girl, a year younger than myself, a nd always had a propensity to seek my d ad out in a crowd. Dad was a police o fficer and all of the young people l oved him. In the rural community where we l ived in Illinois, it was nothing to see c hildren riding their bikes or walking i n their neighborhood, across town, to t he store, to school, wherever. With less t han 3,000 people living there, everyo ne knew you and knew your business. Kathy was sent to the store one day a nd didnt come back home. Her little b ody was found days later in a cornf ield. She had been raped and murdered b y a man who had escaped from a ment al facility in Indiana. I wont go into more of that story b ecause there isnt enough space here f or me to even begin to tell you how it s till makes me and my parents feel s ome 37 years later. Those memories and the feelings that I had once tried to suppress have come flooding back as I hear of another young girl from near my hometown who was taken away too soon. Early last Sunday morning, a 7-yearold Effingham County girl disappeared and was reported missing by her mother. The childs body was found late Monday night 40 hours later and after hundreds of people searched for her. Now it is being reported that Willow Longs uncle has been charged in her death. His father, Willows grandfather, tells television reporters that the little girl tripped and fell into a pile of sticks in her yard with one impaling itself from under her jaw up into her head. Her grandfather told reporters the uncle, his son, became scared and put her out of her misery, hiding her little body in a river bed several miles away. What? Are you kidding me? This is a 22-year-old man. Granted, he may be young but he should have had enough sense to seek medical help, even if he was scared. After all, this man lived in the same house with Willow, her brother, their mother his own sister, and his own parents. Did he not have a feeling of some type of responsibility for the childs well being? Put her out of her misery? Unbelievable. Besides, nothing released to the press by investigators indicate any of this childs injuries were evidence that her neck had been impaled as the grandfather said. One newspaper reported Wednesday afternoon that the uncle is now facing three charges of first degree murder. The Effingham Daily News says the uncle told police he took a knife from his bedroom, knelt beside Willow slashed her throat and said he stabbed her multiple times, aiming for the heart before wrapping her body in garbage bags, sealing them with duct tape and eventually dropping her body in a body of water. The uncle now faces three counts of first degree murder charges; bond has been set at $5 million. Moms initial story doesnt match whats being said now. Questions need to be answered. Someone needs to pay for this tragic crime. I try really hard to not be too judgmental, but this is a child. I have little concern for what happens to those sick people who hurt our innocent children. Bless this precious little angel who died at the hands of someone she loved. Romona Washington is publisher of the News-Sun. She can be reached at 385-6155, ext. 515. Bless, and protect, our children At Random Romona Washington Take a deep breath and plant some lettuce It is easy, in other words, t o say I will stop smoking, b ut almost impossible to t hrow the tobacco away. At l east without help. The fact still remains, h owever, that we do need to c alm down. Surrounded as w e are by continuous inform ation much coming to u s in breathy exaggerations and having to witness h arsh historical events, it is a ll too easy to lose any sense o f perspective, to give up h ope, to become fearful and n egative. If only for the sake of our loved ones, we need to find ways to relax and re-connect so we keep a sense of possibility and confidence in the future. One excellent way of reducing stress is to tend a garden whether it fills a back yard or is a tomato in a pot on the porch. This is fortunate, because the Highlands County Extension Office has a robust gardening program, including a cadre of master gardens available to the public from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. The extension office also offers periodic seminars at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Center. Excellent, in-depth, but easy-to-read papers are posted at the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences extension website to guide not just novice gardeners, but the experienced as well. If attendance at the Sept. 5 seminar is an indicator, there is great interest in gardening here. Extra chairs had to be put out for the large audience. Participants were given a 10-question pre-seminar quiz, then given it again at the end. On average, participants improved 20 percent. In other words, we have a wonderful resource right at our fingertips. And we can become a resource ourselves by passing on the extra vegetables we grow to local food pantries. If you or your children like digging your fingers in to rich soil, enjoy watching plants grow and vegetables form, gardening is an ideal way to reconnect with the small wonders of life. The extension office is planning its calendar for the winter. Among many ideas is a class for canning; let the office know if you are interested. The Highlands County Extension Office is at 4509 George Blvd. Master gardeners and extension agents can be reached at 402-6540. The email address is highlandsmg@ifas.ufl.edu/. Information from the United of Florida is available at ifas.ufl.edu/ I t is easy to say we need to calm down in these p erilous times. The d ifficulty is how to d o it.

It is called Edmodo ( www.edmodo.com), B elanger said. Edmodo is a f ree and secure learning netw ork for teachers, students a nd schools. It provides a s afe way for teachers and s tudents to connect, share c ontent, access homework, p articipate in discussions, m anage due dates and r eceive class information. The site provides an i nstant link between teachers a nd students (and parents) to c ommunicate issues regardi ng anything that takes place i n the classroom. According t o Belanger, he and I brahims class are the only c lass at the school currently a ccessing the tool. It is a great tool. For e xample, we had a science t est (and) I posted a link to a d ocument of a secret study g uide.I had 15 students w ho had read it before they w ent to bed, said Belanger. The instructors are able to upload podcasts, videos, instructions or just about anything that will help students understand homework and study guides. Students log on, create a profile and are able to instantly discuss problems with Belanger and Ibrahim. I also post videos before or after discussions to flip where the learning is happening. I have also had discussions at all hours of the evening, posting videos to YouTube to clarify homework questions, Belanger said. Its crazy how much they use this, said Ibrahim. I get on here and post homework and most of the time about 30 minutes later its like ping, ping, ping, ping, theyve already done the work. The love it. Though the tool is somewhat similar to a social media, Edmodos guidelines specify that it can be used for school-related and educational purposes only. Students are required to use proper and correct grammar (no text language or slang). Students are unable to send messages amongst one another, only to the teacher, and the content must remain positive and friendly at all times. Allie Cannady was busy logging into Edmodo and checking her profile Friday afternoon alongside fellow classmate Chance Smoak. I like it because you can do things a lot faster. The homework and stuff is easier, said Cannady. Its just simple. Its easy to talk to people. Its simpler to do homework. Its just cool, Smoak said. Parents are able to sign up to an account that is linked to their students account. Through the account, parents are able to view homework and project due dates, assignments, grades, school events and the content of the communication between the teacher and their student.

Judd said that includes a pproximately $20,000 dama ge to prescription drugs. During a press conference F riday, Judd said DJJs cost m ay go higher. He plans to invoice the a gency for the cost of r esponding to the riot, which i n labor cost alone could run b etween $30,000-$40,000 f or the 75 deputies he sent to t he riot, he said. He doesnt know if other a gencies that responded will f ollow suit, since the riot d rew a total 75 more officers c ombined from the H ighlands County Sheriffs O ffice, the Sebring Police D epartment, the Osceola C ounty Sheriffs Office, the F lorida Highway Patrol, the F lorida Fish and Wildlife C onservation Commission, t he State Fire Marshals O ffice and the Department o f Corrections. Meghan Speakes, director o f communications for DJJ, s aid she wouldnt be able to c omment on any invoice u ntil her agency receives one f rom Judd. However, she did say paym ents from DJJ to other a gencies are usually only d one if there is a contract a greement already in place. Judd said APYAis a great p rogram and G4S had e nough staff to handle the r iot. However, he asserts that n o outside response would h ave been necessary if staff h ad been given pepper spray a nd flex cuffs and the t raining to use them. Speakes said Secretary W ansley Walters has no i ntention of changing the a gencys policy against u sing chemical restraint, e lectronic control devices or w eapons on inmates. G4S personnel receive training in de-escalation techniques and are told to call law enforcement if they feel its necessary. Judd said his deputies didnt have to use the tools they had, but said merely the fact that they had them and were trained to use them was a deterrent to the inmates. There has to be discipline, and if theres not discipline, you have to have the tools to deal with that, Judd said. Let me ask you something, and Im big on this: Why do we use pepper spray? It reduces injuries to our deputies. It reduces injuries to those we have to arrest. Judd said if APYAstaff had pepper spray, they could have stopped the riot at the start and prevented both the damage, arrests and five juveniles going to the hospital from injuries sustained during the riot before officers arrived. Alittle pepper spray goes a long way, Judd said. The riot that broke out on Aug. 17 stemmed from a basketball game between two inmate teams. The loser was to pay the winner three packages of Cup o Noodles but refused to pay, Judd said. The teams started fighting. Members of G4S staff tried to break up the fight, but couldnt and it escalated. G4S staff were forced to retreat to a building near the gate while inmates broke into and damaged other buildings, including setting fire to the office that held inmate records and a Dumpster, Judd said. He said that when his deputies arrived, inmates were throwing objects at them from rooftops and riding around in stolen golf carts. They owned that facility. They took it away from G4S that night, Judd said. Atotal seven juveniles were taken to Florida Hospital Heartland Division in Sebring with injuries sustained during the fight and riot. Judd said there wasnt any video surveillance on site. Although it would not have prevented the riot, video footage would have helped identify all of those responsible for the damage, Judd said. He also said it would have helped demonstrate the full extent of the damage to DJJ officials before G4S personnel had inmates start cleanup the next day. Speakes said DJJ was very grateful that the Polk County Sheriffs Office offered to house inmates at the South Polk County Jail and was also thankful that the most serious inmate injury was a broken leg. She also said DJJ is doing a full investigation of the incident. We hope to learn how we can prevent it in the future, Speakes said.

The two boxes at the top contain the photos of the two basketball teams that began the incident w ith a fight over an unpaid bet of three Cup o Noodles packets. APYAriot could have been prevented with pepper spray, PCSOs Judd says (Andersons) ammunition manufacturing company, Anderson Arms Inc., would face serious charges. Anderson claimed that his business was inspected by the county building inspector and the city fire department inspector shortly after. Anderson alleged that both inspectors told him they were told to find something wrong. During the ethics investigation, both inspectors denied being sent by Deleon or telling Anderson they had been threatened with their jobs if they did not find violations. For his part, Deleon told the ethics investigator the inspections had arisen as a result of a citizen complaint about faulty wiring. Deleon added that he couldnt have threatened the county inspector because he doesnt work for the city. Early on in this process, I publicly stated that I would resign as City Manager of Avon Park if found guilty of his charges. Clearly, this is not the case, and I intend on staying her e for a while, Deleon wrote in Fridays statement. Acall to Andersons pla ce of business on Friday was not answered.

Aproposed ordinance for identification signs of commercial zones will be presented to council, and discussion will also take plac e on the filling of the soonto-be vacant utilities direc tor position. Current director Marty Roepstorff will retire in late December. Continued from A1 Council to discuss service contracts whether to bring charges in what appeared to be the nations latest deadly cyberbullying case. The bullying started over a boyfriend issue last year at Crystal Lake Middle School, Sheriff Grady Judd said. But he gave no details. Police said Rebecca was suspended at one point for fighting with a girl who used to be her friend. Rebecca had been absolutely terrorized by the other girls, Judd said. He said detectives found some of her diaries at her home, and she talked of how depressed she was about the situation. Her writings would break your heart, he said. The case has illustrated, once more, the ways in which youngsters are using the Internet to torment others. There is a lot of digital drama. Middle-school kids are horrible to each other, especially girls, said Perry Aftab, a New Jersey-based lawyer and expert on cyberbullying. Last December, Rebecca was hospitalized for three days after cutting her wrists because of what she said was bullying, according to the sheriff. Later, after Rebecca complained that she had been pushed in the hallway and that another girl wanted to fight her, Rebeccas mother began home-schooling her in Lakeland, a city of about 100,000 midway between Tampa and Orlando, Judd said. This fall, Rebecca started at a new school, Lawton Chiles Middle Academy, and loved it, Judd said. But the bullying continued online. She put on a perfect, happy face. She never told me, Rebeccas mother, Tricia Norman, told the Lakeland Ledger. I never had a clue. I mean, she told me last year when she was being bullied, but not this year, and I have no idea why. After Rebeccas suicide, police looked at her computer and found search queries such as what is overweight for a 13-yearold girl, how to get blad es out of razors, and how many over-the-counter drugs do you take to die. One of her screensavers al so showed Rebecca with her head resting on a railroad track. Police said that she had met the North Carolina boy at an airport and that they had remained friends onlin e. The 12-year-old boy didn t tell anyone about the Im jumping, I cant take it any more message he received from her on Monday morn ing, shortly before her suicide, authorities said. Detectives said the other girlsparents have been cooperative. Florida has a bullying law, but it leaves punishment to schools, not police Legal experts said it is diff icult to bring charges again st someone accused of drivin g a person to suicide. Weve had so many sui cides that are related to dig ital harassment. But we als o have free-speech laws in this country, Aftab said. Continued from A1 Bullying led to girls suicide

By HANNAH WALLER News-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID It seems the Lake Placid High School football team walked under one too many ladders before playing their Friday the 13th football game. Though it appeared to be a close game in the first and second quarters, the Dragonsopponents, the Cardinal Mooney Cougars, kicked it into high gear in the second half and flew past the unsuspecting Dragons, finishing with a final score of 44-7. ADragon kickoff started off the game, giving the Cougars their first scoring possibilities. But the Dragons defense stayed strong on the drive, forcing just a field goal, making the score 3-0 at the 7:54 mark. Aloose ball a minute later gave Cardinal Mooney their second scoring opportunity, with a fumble recovery and return by Cougar Sean Morris, moving the lead to 9-0. Neither offense seemed to be able to break past the brick wall defenses for a while, that is until 9:29 in the second quarter when Lake Placids quarterback Robert Walton found Alec Sassins hands, making a 25yard touchdown pass. With a good extra point kick by Jorge Godinez, Lake Placid was up on the scoreboard, which now read 9-7. Apparently the two-point gap was unsettling for the Cougars, as they wasted no time widening the gap between themselves and the Dragons with a 63-yard touchdown run by Demardre Patterson at the 3:37 mark. The score didnt stay 16-7 long, as Cougar quarterback Reese Vita connected with Austin Leach for a 40-yard touchdown pass at 2:10, making the score 23-7 after a good extra point. By DAVID DEGENARO News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Its not w hether you get knocked d own, but whether you get b ack up, said football lege nd Vince Lombardi. The Sebring Blue S treaks will have a week t o get back up after they w ere knocked down Friday n ight by the visiting H ardee Wildcats. Sebring dropped their f irst contest of the season t o the Wildcats while being s hutout 21-0. That was a good footb all team we played, and w e are a good football t eam ourselves, Streak h ead coach LaVaar Scott s aid. We just need to stop t hese self inflicted w ounds. Hardee came into F ridays matchup with a 11 record coming off a most r ecent loss to a tough Fort M eade squad. With Sebring carrying in t he confidence and swagg er of a 2-0 season record a nd a 17-0 win over O keechobee the previous w eek; these two rivals w ere in for a physical g ame. Hardee started their s coring in the first quarter w ith a 20-yard pass into t he end zone that was t ipped out of the hands of t he intended receiver and a s the ball was about to f all, in swooped another H ardee receiver to make a stunning diving catch for the touchdown. After the extra point split the uprights, the score was 7-0 Hardee with four minutes to go in the first quarter. The second quarter showed promise for the Blue Streaks offense with a string of drives, including a 40-yard rush by Toni Jenkins due to great blocking in the field. The Streaks, however, couldnt capitalize on anything as they went quietly into halftime without putting up a number on the board. The Wildcats struck in the third quarter with a rushing touchdown from the quarterback, followed by a successful extra point kick which made the score 14-0 Hardee. The fourth quarter had similar results as Hardee would throw 57 yards to a receiver that would take it all the way for the third and final Wildcat touchdown of the game. The Streaks will travel to LaBelle on Friday, Sept. 20, for a 7 p.m. contest, where they will look to get back to their winning ways. S PORTS B SECTION News-Sun Sunday, September 15, 2013 Special to the News-SunDAYTONABEACH The International Motor Sports Association (IMSA) announced today that Tudor an innovative and retrochic watch brand has been named entitlement partner for the next five years of what now will be known as the Tudor United SportsCar Championship. The IMSAannouncement Thursday morning precedes Tudors official U.S. launch this evening during New York Fashion Week. The 2014 season will feature the rebirth and revitalization of sports car racing in North America, and therefore its the ideal time to introduce a premium watch brand like Tudor to our U.S. fans and partners, as well as further solidify our relationship with the international motorsports community, said IMSA CEO Ed Bennett. This is a natural progression of the fantastic relationship weve cherished for decades with our partners at Rolex. In Tudor, we have an optimal match for the Championship, as its brand attributes align with ours, specifically its Grantour collection that was created for sports car aficionados. The Tudor United SportsCar Championship extends ties of the prestigious Swiss watchmaking market to premier U.S. sports car racing dating back to 1959, when NASCAR Founder and IMSACoFounder Bill France Sr. and Rolex formed their initial relationship. Rolex will continue to serve as Title Sponsor of the annual Rolex 24 at Daytona, and Official Timepiece at Sebring International Raceway and the Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. For years Tudor has been inspired by motorsports, said Tudor Brand Manager Russell Kelly. This new partnership IMSA announces new sponsor for race series See TUDOR, Page B4 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Cadie OHern hammers a shot past Lady Devil Harley Hutzinger in Sebrings T hursday win at Avon Park. 0-for Friday night Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Duran Randolph breaks up this pass intended for Tristen Lanier in Fridays Sebring, Hardee contest at Firemens Field. Dan Hoehne/News-S un Green Dragon Marquavein Copeland takes down Cardinal Mooney quarterback Reese Vita Friday night. Sebring tamed by Wildcats Cougars run away from Dragons See LP, Page B3 Special to the News-SunThere wasnt much to write home about, regarding the Red Devils road trip to Fort Meade Friday night. Rather, it was the Miners who made the most of their Homecoming game with a dominant, 48-0 win over Avon Park. With a sizeable crowd on hand to kick off the celebratory weekend, Fort Meade scored early and often to cruise to a 35-0 lead by the half. Quarterback Jay Smith threw two first-quarter touchdown passes, and added one more in the second quarter. That second-quarter toss was flanked by a 35-yard punt return for a score from Tobias Culpepper and a three-yard Tyler King run. King would total 173 yards on nine carries on the night, 80 coming on a fourth quarter touchdown run that sealed the scoring. We just did not get it done, Avon Park head coach Wade Jackson said. I see some kids that absolutely give their heart and soul when they are out there. W e have to have 11 kids that give it all theyve got no matter what. Talent does not always win and that is what we are going to look at. We are not going to reinvent the wheel, we are going to do what we do best, he continued. We are going to run our offense and stay the course like we talked about, and get kids in there that are going to fight on every play until the whistle blows. We just have to find 11 young men that will battle. And battle they will need to do as the Devils hit the road again next week with a Friday date in Sarasota against Cardinal Mooney. Miners bury Red Devils B y BRITTANYWHITTINGTONNews-Sun correspondentAVON PARK The tens ion was high and in full f orce on Thursday night in t he Red Devil gym as the L ady Streaks and Lady D evils squared off for the f irst time this season. Without any prior play a gainst each other, the m atch could have easily g one either way. With both teams being e venly matched, the comp etition was not a disappointment. We pulled out a great win, kudos to Avon Park, they didnt quit, said Sebring head coach Venessa Sinness. They played hard right from the beginning. Avon Park started with the lead thanks to a kill by Harley Huntzinger. The Red Devils kept the momentum with a tip by Huntzinger to put them up by two 3-1. Sebring was able to tie the score at 4, but an ace by Huntzinger pushed Avon Park ahead by one. Hannah Tucker completed a kill to side out for the Streaks, but they were trailing 8-6. Avon Park tacked on more points to put their lead at 13-9, causing Sebring to use their first time out of the set. This pause changed the momentum temporarily, Lady Streaks pull away from Avon Park See STREAKS, Page B3

With the first half winding d own, the Dragons werent r eady to go to the locker r oom just yet. Though an interception by t he CougarsDavid B racciano with one minute t o go delayed the Dragons m omentarily, they wasted no t ime taking back what was r ightfully theirs when R amon Galaviz-Rinald made an interception in their own end zone. Without a doubt GalavizRinald would have been long gone for a 100-yard touchdown run if it wasnt for a whistle signaling the play dead, which was eventually overruled. With only 21 seconds left in the first half, a few short runs werent enough for the Dragons to make it to the end zone. The third quarter remained scoreless for both teams, but several runs by Jerry Fields, Foster Walker, Eldon McKenzie, Marquavein Copeland, Nick Tuason and Isaiah Velazquez surely put the pressure on Cardinal Mooneys defense. At 5:52 in the fourth quarte, Patterson again broke through the Dragon defense again for a touchdown run, making the score now 30-7 after a good extra point kick. The scoring didnt stop there, as the Cougars made yet another touchdown after a fumble by the Dragons at 4:56. The final touchdown came at the 4:38 mark, when Patterson took it in from seven yards out, locking in the score at 44-7. Though their fate was already set, the Dragons kept on fighting til the very end. An 11-yard run by Walker and six-yard run up the middle by Copeland were the Dragonsfinal attempts at a score, but they came up short. Key defensive plays by Chase Griffin, Malachi McLean and Jake Baker saved the Dragonsmore heartache from other potential touchdowns by the Cougars. We played hard, but our execution was terrible, sai d head coach Jason Holden afterward. Were on the verge of greatness, but now we have to translate that in to play. Lake Placid will work on that execution this week before heading to Naples to face Golden Gate Friday. church page; 5.542"; 7.1"; Black; church page dummy; 0 0 0 2 6 4 0 0 biz spotlight; 5.542"; 8"; Black plus three; process, heartland biz spotlig; 0 0 0 3 1 9 7 5 TriPower; 5.542"; 10.5"; Process color; -; www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 15, 2013 Page B3 Continued from B1 Lake Placid done in by big plays b ut not for long with the L ady Devils battling back f or the upper hand and slowl y started to pull away again. They were able to pull a way and were able to keep a four point lead until an ace b y Maci Harris closed the l ead by two and forced c oach Shane Wirries of Avon P ark to use a time out. After this time out, the set b ecame a nail-biter. Point after point it was b ack and forth. The score was 24-22 with A von Park on top, but the c onsistent Streaks still f ought their way to try and s teal the set. Sebring tied the set at 24, m eaning that the set would h ave to then be won by a d ifference of two points to b e completed. The Devils scored, putting t hem up 25-24, but a kill by T ucker tied the score yet a gain. Avon Park scored the next t wo points, however, ending o n a Marina Torres kill fini shing the set 27-25. The second set was much d ifferent than the first. Sebring started off strong, s hocking the Devils and putt ing them back on their h eels. Aquick time out was c alled early by Wirries to try a nd settle down his team, d own 8-5 with no luck. Akill by Tucker and tip b y Jordan Hinkle put the S treaks up 11-5. Asolo block by Sebrings C adie OHern added another p oint to the scoreboard, cont inuing the run to make it 1 3-5. Another point was added for the Blue Streaks before Wirries called his final time out with the score 14-5. After the 10-point run, Avon Park ended the streak, but Sebring was reluctant and got the service back and added another four points to their lead making the score 19-6 and a bigger hole for the Red Devils to dig out of. Akill by Briana Roque kept Avon Park alive when they gained possession and went on a slight run. The score was at 24-8 after a Lindsey Whittington kill and the Devils knew it was time to step up if they wanted to take the second set. Playing smart, a tip and solo block by Roque closed the gap to 24-13, and a Torres kill put the score at 24-15, but Sebring was able to side out and close the set 25-15. The third and fourth set would pan out extremely similar to the second in more ways than one. Throughout both sets Sebring would stay in control and maintained a decent led over the Red Devils. Every few points, and then at the end when the Streaks only needed one more point to close the sets, Avon Park would sneak up and gain five or six points, putting the Blue Streaks on their heels. Sebring was able to close out each, however, taking the match with the scores 25-20 and 25-18. Abusy week awaits the Devils, with a Monday home game against Hardee before getting back into district play Tuesday at Lake Placid and Thursday at McKeel. Sebring faces new district foe Lemon Bay at home Monday and host Okeechobee Thursday.

This is the perfect alignment between partners dedicated to performance and precision. In 1926, Rolex founder Hans Wilsdorf registered The Tudor brand and established Montres Tudor SAin 1946. From 2009 to 2011, Tudor had a partnership with Porsche Motorsports as Timing Partner, and two years later, it began its collaboration with Ducati as global Timing Partner. Its affiliation with the FIAWorld Endurance Championship which includes a race in Austin, Texas, alongside the American Le Mans Series race later this month commenced this year. Not only do Tudors brand attributes of performance, prestige and elegance align with the nature and character of endurance sports car racing, but clearly, we are the only form of motorsport in which the race length is determined by time, not distance, said IMSAPresident Scott Atherton. Based on our mutual strengths, a watch and timing partner is a superb match for our serie s. Were pleased that Tudor recognizes that our passionate fans are absolutely the right clientele for them. The inaugural Tudor United SportsCar Championship will debut next January with the 52nd Rolex 24 At Daytona. The complete 2014 schedule will be announce d at a later date.

WASHINGTON (AP) A mericans boosted their s pending at retail businesses o nly modestly in August, i ndicating that economic g rowth remains sluggish. C onsumers bought more c ars, furniture and electroni cs last month but held back o n most other purchases. Spending at retail busin esses rose just 0.2 percent l ast month, the Commerce D epartment said Friday. It w as the smallest gain in four m onths. But the government s aid retail spending was s tronger in the previous m onth than first estimated, r evising the July estimate to 0 .4 percent from 0.2 percent Excluding volatile spendi ng on autos, gas and buildi ng supplies, sales in August i ncreased just 0.2 percent, or l ess than half Julys 0.5 perc ent gain. Consumer may be growing m ore cautious about spendi ng, a trend that could slow e conomic growth in the JulyS eptember quarter. Slow w age growth, modest job g ains and higher taxes have l imited Americansspending p ower. Retail sales are closely w atched because theyre the g overnments first look each m onth at consumer spending, w hich accounts for 70 perc ent of economic activity. Consumer spending remained stuck in middle gear in the summer, said Sal Guatieri, an economist at BMO Capital Markets. Guatieri forecasts that spending is growing at an annual rate of roughly 2 percent in the current JulySeptember quarter, about the same as the previous quarter. That suggests economic growth is slowing to an annual rate of about 2 percent, down from the 2.5 percent annual rate that the government estimated for the April-June quarter. Most economists said the retail sales figures are likely healthy enough for the Federal Reserve to begin cutting back its monthly bond purchases when it meets next week. The Fed is buying $85 billion in Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities each month to keep interest rates low and spur more borrowing and spending. Sales of autos and furniture both jumped 0.9 percent in August. Electronics and appliance sales rose 0.8 percent. But clothing sales dropped 0.8 percent and sporting goods sales also fell. Last week automakers reported that their sales in August topped 16 million at an annual pace for the first time since November 2007, just before the recession began. Toyota, Ford, Nissan, Honda, Chrysler and General Motors all posted doubledigit gains over last August. But many retailers have said in recent weeks that shoppers have been reluctant to spend freely for back-toschool shopping. According to a tally of 10 retail chains by the International Council of Shopping Centers, sales rose 3.6 percent last month. Thats down from a 6 percent gain for in August 2012. Job gains have been steady this year. But the pace of hiring has been too weak to rapidly lower the unemployment rate, which is 7.3 percent four years after the Great Recession officially ended.

The exhibit is called Black and White E xpressions and is being d isplayed in the upper g allery of the museum. The c ompelling works displayed a re pencil drawing that this a rtist has created. The exhibi t will run from September 2 013 through to December 2 013. Marshall began her prof essional art career a little o ver a year and a half ago. H er children were grown and t he family business had s lowed. She had always l oved to draw and now there w as time again. She had d rawn as a child with the e ncouragement of her grandm other, whom had noticed h er talent at a young age and a lways kept a supply of penc ils and paper around. When M arshall turned 13, the fami ly moved from Baxter, T enn. to Boca Raton. When she started her f reshman year of high school a nd met an art teacher by the n ame of Mrs. Osborne. She w as a wonderful teacher who h ad a way of really bringing o ut the talent of her young s tudents, Marshall said. A fter graduation, life got in t he way and there was no l onger time for Marshall to c reate her art. So in March of 2012, M arshall once again, picked u p a pencil and began to draw for the first time in more than 10 years. She had forgotten the passion that can drive her to capture, with her pencil, what she sees. So with a lot of encouragement from some great friends and family, Marshall decided to live her dream, to become an artist, to share her art with others, and to one day have her art displayed in a museum. So here she is a year and a half later making that dream come true. Marshall finds that, as an artist, there is an internal drive, a passion to draw, a passion to create, a passion to always try something new.She loves old photos, local sites, people, and just about anything that she finds something special in, something she can bring out in a drawing and show to a viewer to make them see, what she sees. She likes to capture a moment and put it on paper. Although for this exhibit, only her pencil work is shown, Marshall also paints and has begun to sculpt recently. Sunsets are her favorite to paint with food coloring and wax and she has dabbled with acrylics as well. She has sculpted with old books and has created a clay sculpture or two. Sculpting, she is sure to do a lot more of in the future. She is always looking for some new medium to try, something to be creative with. So even though pencil drawings are her first love, expect more forms of art from Marshall in the future. Black and White Expressions, featuring local artist Beverly Marshall, can be viewed in the Upper Gallery at the South Florida State College Museum of Florida Art & Culture, 600 W. College Drive, Avon Park. The viewing hours are from 12:30-4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Weekly hours begin Sept. 18. For more information call 784-7240 or 4536661.

Todays mighty oak is just yesterdays nut that held its ground. David Icke Nature constantly amazes me. Take the mighty oak for example. This h uge, magnificent species is b orn from a tiny acorn that p lummeted to the forest floor. T he small, somewhat i nsignificant looking acorn f inds a place on the ground a nd begins its journey into b ecoming one of the largest, s trongest trees on the planet. If left undisturbed, the a corn will germinate and s prout in the spring. But, as w ith most things in life, to b ecome tough, robust, and u seful, the oaks journey will p rove long and difficult. In f act, it may take a decade or l onger before it begins to p rovide adequate shade. What we dont see, is what i s happening underground. O ak trees can send roots as d eep as five feet in their first y ear of growth. This is what m akes them such sturdy, s trong trees. The tiny acorn does face i ts challenges in early life. N ot all acorns sprout, some s imply lay dormant upon the f orest floor. Others may be d ug up by birds, squirrels and o ther small mammals looking f or a snack. Even if they do s prout, deer and rabbits find t he new, bright green growth v ery tasty and will often nibb le the sprouts before they h ave a chance to grow. Those a corns that are fortunate e nough to make it past the s prouting stage still have a f ight ahead of them. These young trees must compete with nearby plants for space, shade, sunlight, nutrients and water. Once the slow growing oak begins to make its way to the sunlight, it will gain height and width, sending branches in all directions. These strong limbs provide perches for birds and homes and shelter for numerous creatures. The leaves provide oxygen as well as nutrients to the forest floor. Much sought after shade is provided once the oak begins to spread out and begin its quest to be the mightiest tree in the forest. There are about 600 species of oaks, which are considered any tree or shrub of the genus Quercus of the family Fagaceae (beech family). Oaks are cultivated for lumber as well as landscaping. The wood that oak trees produce is strong, durable and has an attractive look to it. The wood has been used for centuries for shipbuilding, railroad ties, barrels, tools and furniture. Even the bark has many uses. Some species of oak bark has been used for medicinal purposes. Oak bark is also used in tanning and for various dyes. Acorns that the oak produces are used as animal feed, tannin, oil and even food. One of the most wonderful factors about these trees is that you can grow your own! Its fairly simple, free, and fun for anyone who appreciates the process of nature. If successful, the reward is limitless since you will have an oak tree that will most likely outlive you and possibly the next generation. Your oak may provide shade in the yard, branches to hang a swing on, limbs to climb, habitat for animals, and beauty for all to enjoy. Involve your kids or grandchildren; planting an oak provides them with a great opportunity to learn about a trees life cycle. How to grow your own oak tree (Source: http://www.wikihow.com/Grow-an-Oak-Treefrom-an-Acorn) 1. Collect green acorns in early fall. Choose ones that are free of worms, holes, and fungus. Ideally, the acorns should be brown or nearly black. 2. Put the green acorns in a bucket of water for a couple minutes. Discard any acorns that float. 3. Take out the remaining acorns. Place them in a large zipper bag with damp sawdust; you should be able to fit up to 250 acorns in these bags. Put them in the refrigerator for a month or longer, as needed to germinate the new oak. This process is known as stratification, which is simply having a seed exposed to cold temperatures. This primes the seed for sprouting in the spring. 4. Keep an eye on their growth. The root end will begin to crack through around early December (late fall, early winter). Once the root has cracked through, the acorn is ready to be planted. 5. Plant each acorn in a 2inch diameter pot deep enough so the tap root can grow. Place the acorn about 2-4 inches below the surface with the root facing down. Water regularly. 6. If preferred, just bury the root, and gently tuck the acorn to one side on top of suitable rich, soft soil. This will only work if the tap root is already well established, long, and has detached adequately from the acorn. 7. After the oak has grown about four inches, which should take less than six months, it can be planted into the ground. In the meantime, continue to care for it in its potted environment. Ideally, the containers should have holes in the bottom that allow for drainage. Alternatively, the acorns can be planted directly into the ground by clearing a 2by-2-foot area and placing two acorns into that space, with one or two inches of so il on top. The circle should have full access to sunlight and good soil. Lay a mulch of bark chip about one foot around the tree, but make sure it does not touch the stems. In the middle, dig a hole about a foot or two deep and a foot wide. Place the oak seedling into the hole, sloping the soil away from the seedling so that the water does not sit at the trunk of the tree. Oaks do not like water sitting on their trunks. Next, pack down the earth and water the seedling. Wat ch it grow over the years! Corine Burgess is and Environmental Specialist for the Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department.

DearAbby: I am a divorced woman with three children ages 24, 22 and 16. I live on my own with my girls. I have been dating a man, Reed, for three years. We are very much in love and have been working to blend our families. (He has two children.) We have decided to move in together at the end of October. My lease will be up then, and Reed has sold his condo. We will be moving into the house he shared with the ex-wife while they were married. Im comfortable with the move, and our kids are very excited about it. Everything is fine except for one thing: His ex-wife has not yet found a new home to move into. With little time to go, hes now suggesting that we move in and live with his ex-wife until she finds a new place. Reed believes this will be very short-term a month or so. The house is big enough for all of us, so thats not an issue. His ex-wife and I are friendly, so thats not an issue either. But Im not comfortable with this plan. Am I being irrational? Should I just act like a grown-up and make the move, or should I refuse? Second Thoughts in Massachusetts DearSecond Thoughts: You are neither immature nor irrational. You are thinking ahead and that is what grown-ups do. What if Reeds ex cant find a place that suits her in a month or so? What if it takes six months or even a year? While you may like the woman, do you really want to share your dwelling with the Ghost of Marriage Past? If I were you, Id talk to my landlord and ask if you can work out a monthto-month extension of your lease. If thats agreeable, Reed can move in with you for the short term. Im sure youd both be happier. DearAbby: My mother is in her mid-50s. Shes a wonderful woman, but she makes us late for everything. My husband and children, my siblings and I often attend family functions and other events as a group. When we go to pick up Mom, she announces she has just a few chores she wants to do first, and they take forever. We are not a few minutes late; were significantly late, and sometimes miss events altogether. These have included weddings and funerals, and we have wasted hundreds of dollars on tickets to missed events. Shell often make a show of apologizing, but her behavior never changes. We have stopped inviting Mom to some events, but she makes us feel guilty if we dont take her to a family event. We have tried helping her do her chores the day before and lied about starting times. Nothing works, and Mom finds more to do. We have asked her friends about this behavior. They say she never pulls these stunts when they pick her up for things. When we talk to Mom about it, she insists she needs to get things done ahead of time. Her house isnt messy, nor is it known for being overly tidy. Shes in good mental and physical health. Were fresh out of ideas on how to deal with this. Help! Late For a Very Important Date DearLate: Its interesting that your mother doesnt behave this way with her friends. That tells me her behavior is controlling although its hard to understand what perverse pleasure she gets out of it. I would handle it this way: Tell Mama you will pick her up at a certain time and that you will wait no longer than five minutes for her. If shes not out by then, you will leave. And then do it.

Solution on page B10 Have you ever filled a glass with liquid and distractedly cast your eye elsewhere while pouring?In that split second, the liquid reaches the rim of the glass and immediately overflows.In haste to correct the mistake, you knock it over and watch it cascade over the counter down to the floor. What had only been a glass full looks like buckets of liquid spreading to far reaching places. Like a glass that is full and overflowing, thats the kind of people we can be. Instead of just being momentarily helpful, lets be full of help with far reaching impact, overflowing like the glass of liquid and finding new crevices to fill. I have written about the wonder of the mountains and the drapery of stars that fill the inky skies of Colorado. Without other lights to distract, all I can say is that its wonderful. But, suppose I said that it is full of wonder. Thats really what I feel. So, full that it spills out of me to you because I cant be blessed like that without sharing the experience. In Isaiah 9:6b, NKJV, it says of Jesus Christ, And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. His name is full of wonder. His person is full of wonder. H is countenance is fu ll of wonder. His works are full of wonder. We should be awestruck and fall before him full o f the wonder of his love and faithfulness. And that leads me to another term faithful. When a person is trustworthy, it indicates that he is dependable and faithful in his person and that his actions follow suit. When that person is faithful to h is calling in life, there is steadiness and integrity. So, turn that word around. Full of faith. That person leads with faith. She trusts in God and goes to him first for guidance. Then she is alert to his leading. When she goes forth, she does so with confidence, assurance and anticipation of the great adventure ahead. Usually when someone is full of faith they are als o joyful or, you guessed it, full of joy. I was once told that joy is an acronym for Jesus, others and you. Put him first, than reach out to others and consider yourself last, and he will fill you with his abundant joy Then you will be filled to the brim and overflowing with contagious faith and joy that spreads to far reaching places.
