By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING September is national coupon month, but a couple of local women have been celebrating the practice for years. Michelle Leicht and Liz Epps have also started helping others to mine newspaper gold by clipping and redeeming coupons. The major vehicle they use to swap tips and information about money saving offers is a Facebook page called Highlands Coupon Moms. That group has 176 members. Although most are local, Leicht said there are some from out of the area as well, weighing in on different money-saving opportunities as well as asking questions about different store policies and coupon applications. Leicht and Epps met through a parent-teacher organization at their kidsschool. The two later became friends and subsequently engaged in the world of couponing. She would tell me what she was doing, then I started couponing and then we decided to share what we knew with others, Leicht said. Earlier this month, the duo held a couponing seminar in a meeting room at the Sebrings Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. They first discussed the best way to obtain coupons, By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Plans are under way to improve the Highlands County Medal of Honor Park. County commissioners Tuesday, by consensus, gave a conditional go-ahead to Medal of Honor Park Foundation members Harry Oakley and Don Laycock to continue development of a preliminary concept and enhancement plan that could see a new road built and the addition of new structures. The proposal would expand the park on 72,000 square feet of property currently unused on the grounds that house the Highlands County Veterans Service Office and the Highlands County Health Department. What I think theyre asking is a consensus from us that we will work with them on it, County Commissioner Ron Handley said. It may not be 72,000 square feet by the time we get done. Commission Chair Jack Richie echoed those sentiments.

The vote was 15-1 among the 16 voters who turned out between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Tuesday, said Supervisor of Elections Penny Ogg. That was an 18 percent turnout at the South Florida State College library from the 86 registered voters in Lacey Hills, she said. We knew it would be a smaller election, Ogg said. Presidential elections dra w an average of 60 percent of registered voters, she said, while mid-term/gubernatori al elections draw 48 percent, on average.

Toddler run over by lawn mower Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Handicap access ramps are a common sight at public buildings, but for the Historical Society of Avon Park Depot Museums Silver Palm Dining Car an access ramp only recently became a reality. Anumber of years in the planning and soliciting funds and donations made the ramp possible. The Depot Museum owes a huge gratitude of thanks to the following groups and organizations who devoted a week to the construction: Avon Park Noon Rotary and Highlands Habitat for Humanity for the overall planning and construction; Cool and Cobb Engineering for the design plans; the Avon Park Correctional Institution for providing working volunteers; Bagwell Lumber of Avon Park for providing the materials at a reduced cost; and last but not least, Norma Jean Jordan, vice president of the Avon Park Historical Society, for her untiring and relentless pursuit of bringing it all together. The Silver Palm Dining Car is not open to the general public but is available for private functions by reservation only. Aseating capacity of 40 makes it adequate for many functions. The dining car is in full compliance with Department of Health regulations and the volunteers that staff the events have completed the required hours for food handling to the public. For reservations to schedule an event call the museum at 453-3525 and speak with Elaine Levey, museum director. Contact the Depot Museum at 453-3525 or 4143316.

Pigman told Tea Party members recently that food there is very bland and hot sauce would be very welcomed. John Nelson, chair of the Highlands Tea Party, said, I would also like to recognize and extend our appreciation to GoingPostal for including many pre-paid phone cards for the unit. I want to express a special thanks to the young ladies from Sebring High School, Savannah and April, who volunteered to help inventory, pack, and complete the paper work to ship these items.

B y SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The City o f Sebring elections will r emain in the month of M arch after the council v oted down a proposal to m ove the election date to N ovember to coincide w ith gubernatorial and p residential elections. The 3-2 vote came after a month of council meeti ngs and tabled discussion w eighing the pros and c ons of moving the city e lections to the fall. Scott S tanley, John Griffin and B ud Whitlock cast the no v otes while Andrew Fells a nd John Clark cast yes v otes. The motion to move the e lection date died at the S ept. 3 council meeting d ue to a tie vote. Griffin, w ho was not present at the S ept. 3 meeting and won h is seat in March by four v otes, was Tuesdays t iebreaker on whether or n ot the members were e ven interested in adding t he proposed election date c hange to an upcoming a genda. Fells asked the memb ers during the council m embers if any of the m embers would be intere sted in adding the prop osed change to the next m eeting agenda. Fells and Clark have b oth been very vocal a bout disappointment in v oter turnout over the past f ew years and argued that t he proposed change is w hat the residents wanted, t hough Griffin disagreed. Im not saying theyre n ecessarily complaining J ohn, Fells said to G riffin. Im just asking f or this council to give t hem (voters) the opportun ity to say if they want it o r not. Theyre happy with the w ay things have been runn ing, said Griffin. (The) o nly thing youre going to g et if you change it to a g eneral election is your g oing to get more people g oing to the polls because i ts a bigger election but t heyre going to have to g o further into the ballot t o get to that item. I dont s ee any sense in changing i t. (There) doesnt seem t o be a lot of interest, or p eople are basically satisf ied, so they forget about i t because its not a high p riority, but I think if y oure there youre going t o vote, said Mayor G eorge Hensley, who d oesnt have a vote. Griffin stated that the e xceptionally low voter t urn out for the March city c ouncil elections was a r esult of little to no advert ising in local publications o r media outlets.

The states r ejection of about $5 billion i n federal money to expand M edicaid to more than a mill ion Floridians may prove to b e terribly ill-advised. But now, an order issued l ast week by the state D epartment of Health, proh ibiting county health d epartments from allowing so-called navigators to help low-income people sign up for subsidized health insurance, is simply mean spirited. C. Meade Grigg, deputy secretary for statewide services at the Department of Health, told 60 local health department directors that they may accept materials from the navigators. However, navigators will not conduct activities on the grounds of the health departments, he wrote. Gov. Rick Scott and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi have said the navigators counselors hired under the Affordable Care Act could threaten the private information of people trying to get health insurance. In August, Gov. Scott said he wanted to know how this information will be shared among federal agencies or if the federal government will also distribute it to outside groups. If you already have health insurance, you know how confusing it can be to examine the many options each year and navigate the signup process. It will be that much harder for people who never have had health insurance to understand the health exchanges and other options under Obamacare. Dr. Marc Yacht, retired director of the Pasco County Health Department and an occasional My View writer for the Democrat, called the order cruel and irresponsible and said it would significantly compromise a multitude of needy Floridians from getting critical health care. The mission of the Florida Department of Health is To protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida. With about 3.8 million Floridians living without health insurance, the governor and Department of Health should reverse this directive immediately. An editorial from the Tallhassee Democrat. Citizens suffering as state resists the Affordable Care Act F loridas leadership in an ill-fated quest to stop Obamacare in the courts was a legitimate effort that l ed to a landmark Supreme Court ruling. The Idiots Against Guns in the media a nd Congress overdid it this time. Not wanting to miss a chance to p oliticize a shooting tragedy, the antig un nuts went berserk Monday when n ews broke that a man had gone on a r ampage at a D.C. naval base and killed 1 2 people. Long before the facts were known or c lear, The Washington Post, The New Y ork Times, CNN and their liberal c ousins launched their latest gun-cont rol jihad. Seizing on an early report from the s cene that Aaron Alexis used an AR-15 a ssault rifle, the Idiots Against Guns p ulled out their hymnbooks and sang t heir favorite tune all day. Forget the madman who pulled the t rigger. It was the evil AR-15 assault rifle t hat was responsible for his killing s pree. And here was the latest proof t hat this demonic weapon of death s hould be banned by the federal gove rnment. We now know the killer didnt buy a n AR-15 in Virginia, legally or illegall y. We know he didnt pick up an AR-15 d uring his rampage. And we now know the AR-15 never e xisted. But the nonexistent AR-15 proved to b e a godsend to the liberal media and t he professional gun-grabbers in C ongress. Sens. Dianne Feinstein and Dick D urbin were at the top of their political g ame. They leaped in front of the TV c ameras, blamed the slaughter on a military assault rifle and called for more gun control almost before the blood of the victims stopped flowing. In the media, CNN won worst prize. It was so hung up on pushing the AR-15 angle that on Tuesday, after the FBI reported Alexis had used a shotgun to do his killing, CNNs journalists invented a new weapon, the AR-15 shotgun. Meanwhile, Monday nights performance by Piers Morgan was pathetic. CNNs prime-time hysteric was so irrational, so emotionally revved up about the AR-15 being to blame for yet another mass shooting, he could barely blather about Americas need for greater gun control or interrupt his guests. Youd think charter members of Idiots Against Guns like Morgan, Durbin and the editorial writers at The Washington Post would know by now to get the basic facts of a shooting straight before they begin politically exploiting these tragedies. But that assumes they are interested in finding truth, not spreading propaganda. Facts and nuance and complexity mean nothing to the IAG crowd. All mass shooting are the same to them. Its always the guns that are to blame, not the troubled humans who pull their triggers. And their simplistic solution to stop future mass shootings is always to call for new laws to ban military-style guns like the AR-15. But whatever we do, well never stop every mass shooting. Ive said before, as one of my fathers Secret Service men once told me, You cant defend against the crazies. Alexis in Navy Yard, as well as Holmes in Aurora, Harris at Columbine, and many other mass shooters, were crazies. They each had serious mental problems. Did they turn violent because they were naturally psychotic, or were they twisted by the side effects of the powerful anti-depressant drugs they were taking? Could their rampages have been prevented by better medical care, better ways to keep guns out of the hands of crazy people, more armed guards in public places, or by ending the gun-free zones that attract young men bent on mass murder? I dont know if any of these common-sense methods would prevent or reduce future mass shootings. The Idiots Against Guns in government and the mainstream media obviously dont know, either. But they dont want to find out. For them its always the gun thats to blame even when it doesnt exist.

Media pulls trigger too soon on Navy Yard shootings Making Sense Michael Reagan So much for voters being poised to show that they dont care about sex scandals anymore. Forget about former South Carolina governor Mark Sanfords surprise May election to the House of Representatives despite the sex scandal stemming from his lie about hiking on the Appalachian trail rather than being in Latin America visiting his girlfriend. This year voters made humiliating examples of the Three Stooges of sex scandals Bob Filner, Elliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner and politicians everywhere, beware. Voters sent a strong message that said: You can run again and we might give you a second look, but if you mess up again we wont want you and if we have someone who hasnt messed up before well probably pick them over you no matter what you say. Give it your best shot but dont quit your day job. At one point it seemed each of the three would survive, but their political storms proved to have been hurricanes, leaving shattered political dreams. Sanford had indeed survived. He was seriously mentioned as a likely contender for the 2012 Republican Presidential nomination, had headed the Republican Governors Association and had been praised by Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele as someone to watch. Sanfords extra marital affair ended the buzz, impeachment efforts failed, and he finished his term in disgrace in January 2011. Still, his Appalachian trail fiasco left a narrow enough path for a comeback trail. Perhaps its because his biblical and political sin was more accessible to many Americans: he seemed to clearly mean it when he said that Argentian Mara Beln Chapu was the love of his life, and later confirmed it when he married her. His scandal wasnt terribly quirky, or shocking, or messy like former North CarolinaSenator John Edwardsaffair while Edwards wife had terminal cancer. Many voters wouldnt do what Sanford did, but they might understand how he felt, and why he did what he did. Spitzer, Filner and Weiner werent as lucky. Until he lost the New York City Comptroller nomination to Scott Stringer in early September in what The Huffington Post called a stunning rebuke, Spitzer seemed destined to becom e the next Mark Sanford. Early polls showed the former governor who had resigned in the face of a prostitution scandal had a 19 point lead By election day polls narrowed: Stringer had hit him on the poor judgment shown by Sptizers private stimulus program for pricy call girls, and his refusal to turn over his tax returns. San Diego Mayor Bob Filner probably could have survived one allegation of sexual harassment and perhaps even a lawsuit litigate d by Gloria Allred. But he couldnt survive the virtual parade of respected San Diego women stepping forward to accuse him in often graphic detail of being a serial sexual harasser. He became a major national punch line for comedians, viral satires, and target for bloggers taking cheap shot s. (Ill NEVER do that even if he starts a rump roast company...). Polls showed voters, Democrats and Republicans wanting him out ASAPand he resigned. But the worse humiliatio n was reserved for former Rep. Anthony Weiner whose sexting made his name branding in more ways one. He was ahead in his race for the Democrati c mayoral nomination until it was revealed he had sexted again. After over-the-top behavior, verbal abuse from voters, and a shameful badgering interview by MSNBCs Lawrence ODonnell seemingly doing a Bill OReilly impression, Weiner ended the race with just 5 percent and gave th e finger to a reporter as his exit gesture. Just as voters had given theirs to him. Filner, Spitzer and Weiner later earned an honor: they were listed in Shalom Lifes Top 10 Jewish Scandals list. The good news? 2013s voters signaled there are limits in American politics And future politicians can and will ignore them. At their political careers serious risk.

Fields stated that the solid w aste issues are time cons uming, and he has gathered m uch information regarding t he waste schedule and rates f rom neighboring cities, c ounties and other regions of t he country in hopes of gett ing a clearer view of which d irection the department s hould be headed. Wed like the councils g uidance with working t hrough this, Fields said. Were requesting that counc il provide assistance t hrough either a committee, a workshop or some sort of c ombination. City staff wants to adjust t he schedule to include bigg er waste cans with fewer pick-ups, which is the opposite of what is being encouraged by residents. The way its currently structured, people are encouraged to get smaller containers with more frequent pick-ups and staff wants to do the exact opposite, said Fields. During this process weve encountered some issues. Council President Andrew Fells quickly suggested a workshop that would include council members. I think all of us may have different ideas of where wed like to see this go, whatd wed like to see done and what level of service solid waste should provide to the city. I would implore council to go with a workshop route so we could all be involved in this decision, Fells said. Council member John Griffin disagreed slightly regarding the forming of a committee regarding the solid waste department and its issues. I dont think a workshop is the way to go. Some of us know a little bit more than the other council members because weve gone through these committee meetings for the last nine or 10 months. Id like to see a committee hold one or two meetings, then hold a workshop, Griffin stated. After discussing more options, a suggestion was made to hold a special meeting. Aspecial meeting would provide the complete council the ability to take any action they deem necessary during the meeting, unlike at a workshop, where no action can be taken until the issues are placed on an agenda for a regular meeting. Griffin made a motion to hold a special meeting to discuss solid waste commercial rates and other issues; the motion was approved unanimously by the full council. Adate is in the works to be set for the solid waste special meeting.

The question was ... who was the founder of Avon Park? All students passed with flying colors.

Deleon had hoped to annex the neighborhood and expand the citys water and sewer customer base. He said he didnt know of any other municipality in Highlands County that had ever used the referendum process for a proposed annexation. However, he said he was glad the city had used the law, not only because other local cities might use it but also because city staff gained some valuable experience. With initiative and chance taking, there is always a chance for success or failure, Deleon said. Being the first through the gate simply means that sometimes I can expect to take one right in the teeth. He said the city paid less than $2,000 to have the election, which he characterized as a minimum cost. In the past two years, the city has annexed more than two square miles, the biggest addition being South Florida State College. Deleon also said the city hopes to expand by considering approval of a proposed expansion of Tire Terminal on U.S. 27, across from the citys public works complex. That vote is expected to come before the Avon Park City Council on Monday, Sept. 23. Continued from A1 which transcends newspapers. There are sources ranging from online printouts to in-store sources such as tearpads and dispensers known as blinkies because of the flashing red light on the box. Some stores also have special credit cards as well as the option of electronic coupons through the use of smart phone technology. That information was followed by an instructional on the ways coupons may be used for maximum savings by matching them with store sales and other offers to get the lowest price. Although they are not extreme couponers, they did advocate stocking up on various kinds of merchandise to take further advantage of retailers12-week sale cycles. Leicht said the Facebook group has a constant stream of newcomers asking basic questions on the best way to apply their coupons at individual stores. The most important thing I can tell you is to be familiar with each stores couponing policy, she said. Some of them actually will change from month to month. She also recommended interested people could find additional information and tips on the Internet at such web sites as www.krazycouponlady.com, www.raininghotcoupons.com and www.truecouponing.com Their initial seminar was a great success, drawing nearly two dozen people. That surprised Leicht. I thought it would be mainly my friends from church but we actually had more non-church members than church members, she said. The pair now plan a second seminar and coupon swap. That will also be held at Sebrings Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and will run from 1-3 p.m. on Sept. 28. That one will deal with how to cash in on register rewards, and extra cash back credits issued by local drug stores as part of their efforts to lure cost-conscious shoppers. While some people charge to teach such classes, the local women dole out their information at no charge. Leicht and Epps also appear the first Friday of each month at 9 a.m. on WWTK 730 AM, where they give out information and answer call-in questions.

Call 314-9876 MIAMI (AP) Tubing can be a dangerous water sport that leads to accidents on the water, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Tuesday in a message to boaters to be safe while towing passengers on the inflatable tubes. The popular boating item known as inner tubes, towables or inflatable tubes has led to several recent accidents across the state, the commission said in a statement, adding that passengers on tubes have crashed into docks, channel markers or even other boats. Last year, five people were injured and two were killed in these types of accidents. Boaters can take safety precautions to keep those tubing safe. When you are operating a boat that is towing passengers on a tube or something similar, their fate is in your hands, said Maj. Richard Moore, head of the commissions Boating and Waterways Section. They are not able to steer themselves in a safe direction and must rely on you to keep them safe. The main safety consideration is keeping them away from all other objects. Although there isnt a required specific distance to keep away from fixed objects or other boats, the commission said operators should avoid pulling the tuber close enough to any thing it can crash into. One good rule of thumb is: Twice the line should be fine, or keep the boat at least two lengths of the towline away from all objects. Tubers should also wear a life jacket, but not the inflatable kinds. Another tip is for there to be a spotter on the boat, or another person besides the driver to monitor the tuber and alert the driver of any issues. FWC urges safety while tubing Maj. Richard Moore FWC Boating & Waterways headThe main safety consideration is keeping them away from all other objects. By MIKE SCHNEIDER Associated PressORLANDO H ousehold income r emains stagnant in F lorida almost five years f rom the depth of the r ecession as the states l argest cities rank at the b ottom in income levels f or the nations most popu lous metro areas, a ccording to U.S. Census f igures released T hursday. Floridas median h ousehold income in 2 012 of over $45,000 d ecreased slightly from t he previous year, but the c hange was statistically i nsignificant. However, F loridas median househ old income is down m ore than 11 percent f rom when it was $ 50,700 in 2000. Only s even other states had h igher decreases in the p ast dozen years, the C ensus figures showed. Nationally, the median h ousehold income was $ 51,371 in 2012. Of the n ations 10 most popul ous states, Floridas m edian household income w as the lowest. Among the states hit h ardest by the recession, F lorida has yet to make u p for lost ground and t hat is reflected in the h ousehold income, econo mists say. This recovery is still a w ork in progress, said S ean Snaith, an econom ist at the University of C entral Florida. It may b e four and a quarter y ears old, but in many w ays its still embryoni c. The slow recovery has c reated a cycle of cons umer caution that helps t ap down household i ncome. Even though F lorida had some of the n ations largest job gains i n July, the unemploym ent rate was still 7.1 p ercent. The slack labor m arket creates little room t o negotiate higher wages a nd consumers end up s pending less money, S naith said. You kind of keep m oving long and waiting f or some lift to come a long but it doesnt a ppear to be along the n ear horizon, he said. Three Florida metro a reas ranked at the bott om of the list for househ old income in the n ations 25 most popul ous cities. The Tampa m etro area was last with a median household i ncome of about $44,000 half that of W ashington, D.C., the c ity at the top of the list. M etro Orlando was the n ext lowest at $46,000, f ollowed by South F lorida made up of M iami, Fort Lauderdale a nd West Palm Beach a t $46,600. Those figures w ere unchanged from the p revious year. Metro Tampa, which i ncludes St. Petersburg a nd Clearwater, has a h igher percentage of resid ents on Social Security t han the national rate. Census: Income stagnant in Fla.

informational gatherings so those who rent lodgings for six months or less will be familiar with the statutes. Were going to start with an educational open house on Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., he said. That will be at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Civic Center. The idea is to bring together those who have been remitting the tax, as well as those who want to learn more about what the levy is and how it operates. In addition to Zwayer and his staff, Highlands County Tourist Development Commission Executive Director John Sherlacher will be in attendance along with some of the countys TDC board. We really want to explain it and let people know who is part of this tourist tax. There are a lot of folks who may rent their house out for those coming to the 12 Hours of Sebring for instance and they need to know about the tax, he said. There are others who may be exempt and not know it. One example is an RVpark where more than 50 percent of the spaces are rented on a full-time basis. Owners of such facilities may be exempt from the tax when renting out remaining spaces on a short-term basis. It was this past April that Zwayer announced plans to take over the collection of the tax even though at first the cost collection might outweigh the revenue. At 3 percent of the total, we are only looking at about $9,000 a year to the tax collectors office. That is based on the Tourist Development Commissions current figures, he said. However, with local enforcement, Zwayer believes those numbers could increase when all of the entities that should be paying the tax are assessed for it. It wont be a money generator for the county but it could be self-sustaining and it would be good for the county as a whole, he said. Zwayer contended that by making certain of universal compliance, a level playing field would be created between competitors. He said there are professional lodging facilities that have told him that while they are remitting the tax, there may be some others who are not. That, he said, represented an unfair advantage. Rather than have a staff in the field, Zwayer said a vast amount of the work could be accomplished simply by utilizing technology. I want to do as much as we can from the office. We can look at how things are listed through the property appraiser, send out informa tion to folks and educate them. In addition to surveying those advertising lodging facilities, the tax collector wanted to establish a complaint-driven program wher e residents or business owners might inform his office of those who may not be in compliance. If people have folks in their neighborhood renting something out maybe they could let us know about that, he said. Zwayers office also is looking closely at a practic e where leases are set for six months and one day to escape the tax. Renters then may leave after only a few weeks, with the landlord then free to rent the proper ty again. If we find they are doing that, and doing it multiple times, they are going to be subject to a penalty, he said. l y historians.

While expressing support f or the idea, Commissioner D on Elwell cautioned the c ommittee to take into cons ideration the possible f uture expansion of parking a t the facility as well as the b uilding itself. We dont want to paint o urselves into a corner, he s aid. I think there are an a wful lot of considerations h ere as this moves forw ard. County Facilities D irector David Flowers t old commissioners currentl y there is no master plan f or the property. In addition t o the Health Department a nd Veterans Services opera tion, it has been suggested t hat the Highlands County S heriffs Office could ultim ately be headquartered t here as well. Moreover, Flowers said, w hile it would be a beautif ul park and a wonderful t ribute, as presented, there w ere no provisions for restr ooms or for current or l ong-term maintenance of t he grounds, walks or monu ments. I am just trying to be r ealistic about this, he s aid. We do not have the s taff to maintain a park of t his magnitude. Laycock, a certified general contractor, showed the commission plans the group had laid out with the assistance of an architect. Laycock has done work on such projects as the Dollywood theme park. Among other things, the pair asked that the current road coming into the facility be named Medal of Honor Drive, to signal entrance into the park and requested the placement of a larger and bolder sign. There are 21 Florida veterans who have earned the Congressional Medal of Honor, dating back to the Indian Wars and extending up to the most recent recipient from the conflict in Iraq. Currently, all that is listed for those veterans at the countys facility are the name, the conflict, and dates served engraved on large granite stones. You dont get the feeling of what these men sacrificed their lives for, Laycock said. The new proposal would change that, with each of the veterans pictures added with a page-long description of the acts of valor performed by each of them. Those tributes would be enshrined in a gazebo, dubbed The Hall of Citations. Anumber of new flagpoles also have been suggested to carry flags depicting the three different incarnations of the medals of honor bestowed upon the servicemen over the years. Landscaping, said Laycock, would be provided by the Florida Native Plant Society, which has indicated they would help with the plan. Oakley told commissioners the local park is one of a kind, being the only Medal of Honor Park that represents only those recipients from the state. Continued from A1 Medal of Honor Park to get an upgrade Katara Simmons/News-Sun Proposed renovations would expand the Medal of Honor Park in Sebring to 72,000 feet.

By HANNAH WALLER News-Sun CorrespondentLAKE PLACID The t ension in Lake Placid H igh Schools gym was so t hick you could cut it with a knife as arch rivals Lake P lacid and Avon Park s tepped onto the volleyball c ourt Tuesday night. Both undefeated in dist rict play, the two H ighlands County volleyb all teams have been close c ompetitors on the volleyb all court for years, but it w as the Lake Placid D ragons who came out w ith a win of 3-1 over the R ed Devils. Lake Placid started off w ith service but the first p oint of the match went to A von Park. The Lady Dragons r esponded to that with a q uick eight-point run, with B reauna Corley getting a s pike and two blocks. By the time the Dragons h ad 18 points, the Red D evils were trailing far b ehind with only 8. Those numbers didnt s eem to sit well with Avon P ark, and it didnt take t hem long to shrink the gap f rom a 10-point gap to only a two-point lead for the D ragons, making the score n ow 18-16. This impressive comeb ack forced the Lady D ragons to pick up their g ame, and the final score o f the first set was 25-23. The Red Devils were once again first to make it on the scoreboard, but after a kill by Corley, the scoreboard read 2-1 with Avon Park in the lead. It seemed like a game of tag was occurring as points were traded back and forth between the two teams before reaching a score of 19-15, with Lake Placid ahead. Kills by Corley and Bella Caraballo got the score up to 21-15. But again, Avon Park wasted no time catching up to the Dragons after a block by Avon Parks Marina Torres and a wellplaced kill by Imani Tate, making the score 24-21. The fact that it was set point didnt seem to faze the Red Devils, as an extremely long volley between the two teams was finally finished with a kill by Avon Parks Otaysha Smith. Another point for Avon Park tied up the score, but a spike by Lake Placids Jacalyn Baldwin and a mishit by Avon Park finished the set 26-24. Athree-point run by Avon Park started out the third set, but was cut short with a spike by Corley. Neither team seemed to be able to get a grasp of things as points flipped back and forth, with Avon Parks Torres and Lake Placids Corley often at the front to finish the point off. Lake Placid struggled to stay up with the Lady Well, here it is, the third week of September, and the beginning for many of us to start fishing for crappie, or as the locals call them, specks. Ive been getting reports for the last few weeks of good crappie catches in Lake Istokpoga and Lake June as well as a few of the smaller lakes. Jigs, tipped with a minnow in 4-6of water have been working well, particularly on the south end of the big lake near the spillway. Acouple of guys showed me pictures last week of a 15 crappie, as well as a number of 13 and 14 inch fish theyd taken on deer hair jigs and minnows earlier this month from Istokpoga. Last year I started fishing for Crappie in midSeptember at Lake Isokpoga and I was able to find good, quality fish all over the north end of the lake. I like to fish with crappie rigs two snelled, long shank hooks with a weight on the bottom, drifting with a couple of rods in 4-6of water. I was catching most of them during the day, from about 9 a.m. to Noon, although Im sure the bite would have been better after dark. I did fish into the evening a couple of nights in October but the bugs were so bad that even with a headgear made of mosquito netting, theyd drive me off the water. The three lakes I fished for crappie last year and early this year were Lake Istokpoga, Lake Glenada and Lake Lotela. I know there are strong crappie populations in many other lakes in Highlands County, but of these three lakes, the largest crappies I caught came out of Lake Istokpoga. I fished there from September through the end of November and then switched over to Lake Glenada and Lake Lotela. The fish werent as large in Lotela and Glenada but they were much more plentiful. Although to be fair, I fished these two lakes after dark. The bugs were bad a few nights, but if there was any wind at all, the bugs were manageable and after the first hour theyd pretty much settle down and leave you alone. What was interesting is that in Lake Istokpoga I drift fished with crappie rigs in 46of water while at Glenad a and Lotela, I typically anchored in 2224of water and let the fish come to me. Bob Scranton of Avon Park would often take his boat and meet me at Lotela, setting up between 4:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. Wed fish fairly close to each other and typically catch a few before dark, but once the sun went down the real action would get starte d. My depthfinder is set to beep when it scans a fish and by 6:30 p.m., it would be beeping like crazy as one school of crappies would swim by, followed by anoth er and another. We did catch a few really nice 13 inchers, but most were in the 10 to 12 rang e. Fishing with the crappie rig is a lot of fun and its not unusual to catch two crappies at the same time on the same rod. If theyre big ones it will feel like a real monster bringing them up from a 20+ depth. So get out your light action spinning rods and pick up some minnows. Its time to get out there and cash in on one of the best eating fish in Florida. Wednesday, Sept. 11, Bass Tournament We had seven boats show up for last Wednesdays bass tournament on Lake Jackso n.

Don Norton Crappie Season is already here? Dan Hoehne/News-Sun J ada Spano of Brandon rises up for the Lady Panthers Tuesday night as South Florida gave Polk State all it could handle. By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Progress is surely being made and the results are beginning to show as the young South Florida volleyball squad is looking poised to make some noise. The Lady Panthers were back in action at home Tuesday night against Polk State after a long two weeks on the road, which included a rare win over a perennially tough Daytona State College team. Although they came up empty handed, they battled tooth and nail to the very end; and were even able to steal a set away from the Eagles. It was a slow start for the Panthers with Polk starting off with a run, but back-toback kills put them on the board trailing 7-3. Anice assisted block between Evin Foster, from Stuart, FL, and Madison Bitton, from Clinton, UT, added another score for South Florida. In the blink of an eye, the Panthers were tied up at 10 with the Eagles after a kill from Houston Texan Jasmine Kelly. Slowly, South Florida began to pull away from Polk and an ace by Abbey Rouch put the Panthers up 13-11, forcing the Eagles to call a timeout. There was no stopping the persistent Panthers as they continued to put up points on the board with the score now 14-12, but Polk gained a little momentum and tied the score at 15, causing the Panthers to use their first timeout. The momentum slowly shifted more and more towards the Eagles and they were able to take away the first set 25-18. South Florida came out strong and looking for a win in the second set. An assisted block between Jada Spano, from Brandon, and Bitton put the Panthers up 3-2. Multiple kills by Brianna Ballow, from Elkhart, IN, tied the score at 10. After these consecutive points, South Florida began to slowly ease away and in ch closer to taking the second set. The Eagles took a timeout at 16-14 to try and slow the run, but were unsuccessful when South Florida retaliated with another assisted block between Foster and Kelly, making the score now 20-14. Polk was able to score a few points to catch up, but a timeout called by head coac h Kim Crawford stopped the run at 21-17. South Florida was just tw o points away from victory when another timeout was called by Polk State at 23Lady Panthers are on the prowl See CRAPPIE, Page B3 See SFSC, Page B4 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun files Lake Placids Bella Caraballo came up with some big hits in Tuesdays district showdown with Avon Park.

By FRED GOODALL Associated PressTAMPA Tampa Bays D ashon Goldson is proud of h is reputation as a hard-hitt ing safety, but concedes it b others him that theres a g rowing perception that hes a dirty player. Im an aggressive player, w e all know that. My intent ion is to never to go out and h urt anybody, the seventhy ear pro said Wednesday a fter the NFLreduced his o ne-game suspension for a h elmet-to-helmet hit on S aints running back Darren S proles to a $100,000 fine. I try to keep my hits w ithin the rules. Thats what I m going to do week in and w eek out, Goldson added. Im going to try to get guys o n the ground. But at the s ame time, Ive got to be c areful. The decision by Matt B irk, who handles appeals of d iscipline of on-field punishm ent for players for the l eague and NFLPlayers A ssociation, allows Goldson t o practice this week and p lay Sunday at New E ngland. The appeal went OK. I sat there and had a good argument, I felt, said Goldson, who suspended one game without pay Monday for flagrant and repeat violations of NFLsafety rules prohibiting hits to the head and neck area of defenseless players. I explained my side, and they went and explained the rules. We met halfway on the deal pretty much, the twotime Pro Bowl selection said. The good thing is Im not suspended. I get to play this week, which was the most important thing. Goldson was flagged for unnecessary roughness in last weeks game against New Orleans for the hit, one of three helmet-to-helmet penalties called against the Buccaneers. Defensive end Adrian Clayborn was called for a head shot on quarterback Drew Brees, and safety Ahmad Black drew a penalty for hitting tight end Jimmy Graham in the helmet. The unnecessary roughness call on Goldson for hitting Sproles was the second against the safety in two weeks, and his fifth overall since 2011. Hes had a lot of those. He certainly has no regard for the rules in the middle. Hes going after guysheads. You can see it, Brees said. Obviously, $100,000 is a pretty hefty fine. And Im sure if it continues to happen itll be even greater punishment than that. Brees also was critical of Blacks hit on Graham, which came on an incompletion. I know its tough playing the safety position in the middle. Things happen fast, Brees said. But then again, theres some instances where you can see it was pretty obvious a guy was going at another guys head. And that happened on at least two occasions in our game. Since the start of the 2010 season, Goldson has drawn a league-high 15 major penalties, including three for unsportsmanlike conduct. Birk upheld a $30,000 fine for another Goldson hit two weeks ago against New York Jets tight end Jeff Cumberland. Ive got to take my shots when they present themselves, but theyve got to be clean. No launching, of course. No hats on hats, making sure I get the guy down and do it properly, Goldson said. I know theres going to be a lot of eyes on me from now on. And thats ok, he added. Ive just got to be smart. Im not trying to hurt our team. Im definitely not trying to hurt myself or another player. Commissioner Roger Goodell said he had not yet seen Birks decision, but noted that Goldson received a substantial fine that shows a violation of the rule has consequences. Players are adapting to the rules and techniques, Goodell said, adding the culture doesnt change overnight. Goldson was an All-Pro last season with San Francisco, helping the 49ers reach the Super Bowl. He joined Tampa Bay as a free agent, signing a fiveyear, $41.25 million contract. If the seventh-year pros suspension had been upheld it would have cost Goldson $264,705 in salary. Coach Greg Schiano welcomed the news that Goldson would be able to play Sunday. Dashons become a big part of our defense, obviously. Its great that we have him back. Were fortunate, the coach said, adding the coaching staff will continue to work with players and make sure they adhere to the rules. I dont want to be in this position. I know he doesnt want to be in this position, Schiano said. Its something weve got to work very har d on. ... Weve got to get it corrected because we cant afford to lose him, and we want to play the game with in the rules. The Bucs have committed a league-high 23 penalties for 220 yards in two games. Theyve been flagged for six personal fouls five for helmet-to-helmet contact an d the other for a late hit on Jets quarterback Geno Smith.

Nick DeSanta and Roy C lark won the event with t hree fish weighing 6.50 p ounds, followed by Paul T ardiff with 6.32 pounds and D wight Ameling and Bob S tanley with 5.76 pounds. It was pretty tough fishing l ater in the morning with g ale force winds and rain f orcing most of us off the l ake early as the storm hit h ardest around 11:30 a.m. I caught a lot of bass but j ust couldnt find any big f ish. Friday, Sept. 13, Bass T ournament We had a few more boats j oin us on Friday the 13th at L ake Glenada. Although one of my f avorite big bass lakes, this l ake has been tough over the l ast couple of months for me and I was looking at trying a new strategy. Burt Watkins of Avon Park was my partner for the day and I shared with him that unlike the past few tournaments when Id fished a Bass Assassin or flipped the reeds with a Yum Dinger, today Id be throwing a white spinner bait with oversized, silver willow-leaf blades. On my fifth or sixth cast I was rewarded with a 4 3/4-lb largemouth, and a few minutes later, a chunky bass just under 3 pounds. Just as I was congratulating myself with picking the right lure for the day, Burt hooked into a good fish weighing almost 4 1/2 lbs with my go-to bait, a Bass Assassin Silver Phantom. So by 8 a.m., only 30 minutes into the tournament, we figured we had about 11 pounds and even if we didnt add any weight, it would surely be enough to win. Seeing as how it was my birthday, that seemed like a pretty good present. Although we did catch quite a few more bass throughout the rest of the morning, we never added to our weight and with great confidence, we carried our fish up to the scales to weigh them in. The total was 11.38 pounds, and then Dwight Ameling and Bob Stanley brought their fish to the scales and I knew as I looked into their bag, we were in trouble. Dwight and Bob had a nice 5 pounder, one around 4 1/2 pounds and a third just over 3 pounds. Their winning weight 12.02 pounds. The funny part to the story is they caught one of the larger fish at 11:30 a.m. and their biggest; the 5 pounder on what Dwight called his last cast. Nevertheless, it was a good tournament with some nice fish caught and released and everybody had a good time. And it was still a pretty good birthday for me. By the way, were only fishing a couple more Friday tournaments on Lake Glenada. Beginning on Friday, Oct. 4, we will be holding our Friday tournament on Dinner Lake. Lake Placid Team Trail The Lake Placid Team Trail held its first tournament of the 2013-2014 season on Lake June, Sunday, Sept. 15. I fished the event with Paul Tardiff and we had a total of 15 boats fish the event. The winning team of Converse and Frosour won with five bass weighing in at 18.82 pounds. They also won big bass with a 6.99 lb lunker. The team of Bennett and Moore came in second with 14.59 lbs and third place went to the team of George and Balog with 12.26 lbs. Fishing was tough for us. Paul knows the lake well and we fished a number of tree piles all day but couldnt catch anything but small fish. We weighed in five fish but we were a long way from the winning weight. The guys did a great job of running a truly professional tournament. Id have gotten some pic tures but a storm hit just as we were weighing in our fi sh and everybody scattered pretty quickly.

The Panthers were slowly creeping their way back up to the lead with a 6-2 run over the Eagles, forcing Polk to call a timeout at 2220. An assisted block by Spano and Kelly closed the gap by one making the score 22-21. Akill from Spano would be counted as the last score for the Panthers with them down 25-23. The fourth set would be an almost replica of the third with the Panthers trailing but battling back to make it a nail-biting finish with the score 26-24. With our starting libero out, Darby Jones (from Okechobee), we had to make some adjustments, said Crawford. But we still played very well especially in defense, serve receive, and service. Continued from B1 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Madison Bitton of Clinton, UT looks to tip this ball over the net in Tuesdays tough match with Polk. SFSC starting to show signs Devils, staying about four points behind a majority of the set, until it was 22-18, when Avon Park swept in and won the third set 2518. Since they couldnt finish it on the third set, the Lady Dragons were determined to finish the Red Devils on this fourth set. Several spikes by Avon Parks Tate kept the Red Devils right up with the Dragons, but they still lagged behind 14-10. There was a battle at the net as Caraballo spiked the ball, but a great block by Avon Park won them the point. It was all downhill from there for the Lady Devils, however, as the Dragons cleaned up house 25-16. They were on fire, said Lake Placid head coach Charlotte ClantonBauder, who is proud of their 4-0 district record. Though the loss was disappointing, Avon Park head coach Shane Wirries is confident in his teams abilities. We can beat them, they can beat us, he said. Tonight was their night.

Match goes to Lake Placid Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID On behalf of Miracle League for Highlands County I would like to extend an invitation to the opening day of our 2013 season on Saturday, Sept. 21. Miracle League, in its seventh season of play here in Highlands County, is a baseball league for children and adults with physical and/or cognitive disabilities. Currently the Miracle League field, located at the Lake June ball field complex in Lake Placid, sits quietly. That will change at 9 a.m. this Saturday when the cry Play ball echoes through the air and a record number of players take the field for opening day festivities. Miracle League is a noncompetitive baseball league, where the goal is for the athletes to have fun while developing the skills to play baseball as independently as possible. Each player works with a buddy for assistance. These Angels in the Outfield, as Miracle League buddies are called, assist the players to whatever the degree necessary. Some players require more support than others while some are able to play with minimal help. The games are played on a specialized field to ensure safety and accessibility for the players. The field is the only one of its kind in our region, and has made an amazing difference with regard to the independence the athletes enjoy, as many use adaptive walkers or wheelchairs for mobility. Opening Day ceremonies begin at 9 a.m., followed by two adult games and then a youth game. During the season, games begin at 9 a.m., with two adult games for varying ability levels, followed by a youth game at 11 a.m. Fans and buddies are greatly appreciated throug hout the season. For more information yo u can contact John Varady at 863-840-0482, or direct your browser to www.ml4hc.com for updated information. Also, find us on Facebook by searching for The Miracle League for Highlands County. Join us on Saturday, Sep t. 21, to cheer on the players as well as to treat yourself to a truly uplifting and pos itive experience. Miracle League set to start anew Saturday By DAVID BRANDT Associated PressOXFORD, Miss. Texas A &Ms Johnny Manziel has t he Heisman Trophy. A labamas A.J. McCarron h as the national champio nships. Those two are the S outheastern Conferences m ost famous quarterbacks, b ut theyre just the main h eadliners theres a host o f talented signal-callers that h ave offenses rolling across t he league Georgias Aaron Murray, L SUs Zach Mettenberger, M ississippis Bo Wallace a nd South Carolinas Connor S haw are among the many q uarterbacks who have had a g ood start this season. Last weeks ManzielM cCarron showdown, whose t eams combined for 1,196 t otal yards in the Tides 494 2 victory, demonstrated w hat a banner year this has b een so far for SEC offense s. The gaudy stats are popp ing up everywhere. Georgias Murray t hrew for 323 yards against C lemson and 309 yards a gainst South Carolina. Hes o n pace to become the only S EC quarterback in history t o have four straight 3,000y ard passing seasons. Mississippis Wallace t hrew for 177 yards and two t ouchdowns, and also ran for 5 7 yards and a touchdown, a s the Rebels walloped T exas 44-23. Wallace hasnt t hrown an interception this s eason. LSUs Mettenberger needed just 18 pass attempts to throw for 264 yards and three touchdowns against Kent State on Saturday. He has the highest efficiency rating in the SEC so far this season, completing nearly 65 percent of his passes for 797 yards, nine touchdowns and no interceptions. South Carolinas Shaw picked apart Vanderbilts defense, completing 21 of 29 passes for 284 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for 84 yards. Even the Mississippi State-Auburn game provided offensive fireworks. Auburns Nick Marshall threw for a career-high 339 yards and two touchdowns while Mississippi States Dak Prescott countered with 213 passing yards, 133 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns. Quarterbacks will make this season awfully tough for proud, traditionally stout SEC defenses. What Ive noticed the most is that quarterbacks now in the SEC are becoming more and more mobile as the years advance, Tennessee senior defensive end Corey Miller said. I feel like these guys are now able to make plays not only with their arms but with their feet. Theyre able to get outside the pocket, prolong drives, prolong passing plays. Seven SEC teams averaged at least 30 points per game in 2012. So far this season, 10 teams are above that threshold. Manziel, McCarron headline crop of quality SEC QBs

DearPharmacist: I take a d ozen antibiotics per year d ue to frequent infections. W hat else can I take? Dont w orry, I take probiotics, w hat I want is a natural a ntibiotic. M.W., Santa Barbara, Calif. Answer: For millions of y ears, honeybees have prot ected themselves with a s ticky substance called p ropolis to coat and clean t heir hives. Call it bee g lue this compound has e xceptional medicinal benef its just like other tree saps s uch as Frankincense and M yrrh. Propolis has more than 2 00 active ingredients i ncluding cinnamic Acid d erivatives that cause cancer c ells inside you to kill thems elves (even leukemia). It h as antibacterial, antiviral, a ntiseptic, anti-fungal and a ntimicrobial effects. Im stocking up now b efore cough and cold seas on rolls in. The Brazilian s pecies, as in Brazilian green p ropolis, has higher amounts o f these healing compounds, s old at health food stores a nd online. When combined with vitam in D, probiotics, Matcha t ea, Maitake mushrooms and p rescribed low-dose naltrexo ne (LDN about 4.5mg at n ight), I am confident you w ill ramp up your immune s ystem. Talk to your doctor a bout these options. Now, Id like to focus on h ow propolis can rapidly c lear the body of dangerous p athogens, improve blood s ugar and cholesterol, all the while reducing pain-causing cytokines. Artepillin C, a compound in propolis shuts down NFKB, a metabolic pathway in your body that churns inflammatory compounds that make you hurt. So propolis is an anti-inflammatory. It supports healthy blood sugar levels, as well as blood lipids (like cholesterol). Ive always been somewhat afraid of these critters, but after studying this, lets hear it for the bees. As an antibiotic, propolis has been shown to kill H. pylori is implicated in gastric ulcers and colitis; also MRSA, as in the potentially fatal bug Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. It acts on these pathogens without destroying your probiotic flora. Id still take probiotics, but its good to know propolis doesnt harm your gut like conventional antibiotics. That means no diarrhea, cramping and bloating like you get from antibiotics. As an anti-fungal, propolis has been shown to fight Candida strains of all sorts including C. albicans, C. glabrata and C. krusei. That last one is dangerous, and it occurs during production of chocolate and wine. Astudy compared natural propolis to the drug Nystatin, and they were equally effective. Propolis boosts your own macrophages to go and fight harder. One of the most difficult to treat viruses known to man is influenza, another one is herpes, and of course theres the infamous small pox. Would it shock you at this point if I told you various studies have shown antiviral capacity by propolis? Two separate studies have shown it work against HPV, or human papilloma virus, implicated in cervical cancer. Whenever I see hype about injecting little kids with vaccines for HPV, I wonder why propolis doesnt even get honorable mention? For enhanced immune benefits, youll see high quality brands combine the Brazilian green propolis with probiotics, astaxanthin or other immune-boosting antioxidants.

Small incisions can help minimize some of these problems. Trying to diagnose and treat problems with little or no cutting dates back to Hippocrates, who e xamined hemorrhoids with a specul um. Laparoscopic trochars have been f ound in Roman ruins. Arab doctors in t he 16th century used sunlight focused t hrough flasks of water to examine n asal cavities. Their ideas were way a head of the available technology. In earlier times, there was no way to p revent injury to abdominal organs duri ng blind insertion of trochars for organoscopy, unreliable at-best light s ources, cautery for controlling bleedi ng often caused thermal injury. I nfection before antibiotics was always a threat. Bozzini in 1806 used wax cand les and mirrors to provide light to l ook in the bladder with an aluminum t ube. Nitze in 1877 made cystoscopes w ith a light source to look in the bladd er. Two years later he used the same s ystem to examine a knee. These systems and procedures were c uriosities and not widely used. The r eal breakthrough came in 1954 when L awrence Chutes showed that fine g lass tubes could carry light. B. H orowitz in 1957 used this fiber optic l ight with a flexible scope to examine t he esophagus and stomach. GYN surgeons were among the first t o take advantage by doing laparoscopi c tubal ligations and ovarian biopsies. When I was a general surgery resid ent, removing a gall bladder required a large incision, a multiple day hospital s tay and no eating for several days u ntil the colon started working again. N ow a laparoscopic gall bladder r emoval can, in many cases, be done as a n outpatient surgery through several s mall incisions. AJapanese scientist called Takagi b egan using a cystoscope (developed to look in to bladders) to study knees, but the World Wars intervened and it was not until 1957 that one of his students, named Dr. Watanabe, published the first atlas of arthroscopy. In 1976, Dr. Robert Jackson, an American student of Dr. Watanabe, published the first English atlas of arthroscopy. Two years later, when I was an orthopaedic resident, we were beginning to use this arthroscope to look in knees. There were no special instruments then, so we used dental drill bits on our drills, spinal biters (for removing ruptured discs) and long-handled knives through small incisions to smooth damaged joint cartilage and remove torn menisci. We had to lean over to look through the scope while manipulating the instruments. When we got a camera to attach to the eyepiece of the scope we were thrilled. It weighed 10 pounds and hung from a hook in the ceiling. We could watch everything on the TVmonitor. The miniaturization for NASAprojects brought us 2-ounce cameras with detailed pictures. New specialized knee instruments were developed. Knee surgery is now outpatient, and healing times for some reconstructions have been shortened because the normal muscle and uninjured structures do not have to be cut to get in to the knee. Scopes have been tried in almost all joints. In the shoulder, the outcome from arthroscopic repairs are nearly as good as those done with a very tiny open incision. Endoscopic carpal tunnels have not been as big an improvement as we would have hoped. Even on joints that are difficult to operate on such as hips, elbows and ankles we have learned a lot about what causes the pain. This helps us to devise new, more effective treatments. All of these advances cut down on complications, shorten hospital stays and get the patient back to healthy living, faster. Dr. Diana D.

The fictional story is told of a group o f scientists who got together and d ecided that mankind had come far e nough on its own that it no longer n eeded God. So, they picked a representative from a mong their number to go and inform G od that they finally were through with H im. The scientist walked up and said, God, weve decided that we no longer n eed You. Were to the point that we c an clone people and do many amazing t hings by ourselves, so why dont You j ust go off and leave us alone. God listened very patiently to the s cientist, and when he finished talking, G od said, You believe that you do not n eed Me. I believe that you need Me. S o, let us resolve this dilemma the oldf ashioned way. Let us have a man-maki ng contest. The scientist replied, That sounds great! But, God q uickly added, Were going to do this j ust like I did it back in the days of A dam. We will make a man from the d ust of the Earth. The scientist agreed, b ent down, and grabbed a handful of d irt from the ground. God looked at h im and said, No, no! That will not work at all. You are going to have to create your own dirt! Genesis 1:1 reads, In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Therefore, we know that God is the Creator of all things. Exodus 20:11 reads, For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day ... Therefore, we know that God created all things in six days. Jesus said of mankind in Matthew 19:4, And He answered and said, Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female. Therefore, we know that humanity has existed from the beginning. Romans 1:20 reads, For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse. Gods omnipotence (all-powerful nature) has been seen and understood by man since the creation of the world. It is so clearly evident that we are without excuse to believe anything else. My question is simple: Why would anyone want to believe anything else? If God tells me what He did (created everything) and how long He took to do it (six days), then that is good enough for me. Is Gods word good enough for you? Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway.

Is Gods word good enough for you? Kevins Komments Kevin Patterson Snapshots Entertainment By TODD McCARTHY The Hollywood ReporterLOS ANGELES Beholding the late James Gandolfini doing a lovely job in a change-of-pace role significantly intensifies the already funny/sad aspects of Enough Said, an engaging comic romance set amid the minefields that imperil starting up mid-life relationships. The title notwithstanding, writer-director Nicole Holofceners look at a 50-ish divorced mother with a daughter about to leave home is never at a loss for words, many of them quite amusing, making the film a leading contender for best girlsnight movie of the season. For their part, men will enjoy watching Gandolfini in a relaxed, regular guy performance. Employing to her advantage a more traditional story structure than is her norm, Holofcener builds her snappy social comedy around a key piece of information that her heroine doesnt know, that the guy shes beginning to date is the much-disparaged ex of her new best friend. This sort of trick has provided the trigger for rich farcical doings going back at least as far as Shakespeare, and Holofcener uses it as a springboard to look at a raft of self-absorbed, often myopic LAWestside types who have it together in some ways but not in others. Almost everyone here is divorced with an ex living nearby and one kid whos about to fly the coop for college. Eva (Julia LouisDreyfus) is a massage therapist who lugs her portable table to her clientshomes and is preparing emotionally for the looming moment when her smart daughter Ellen (Tracey Fairway) heads East for school. A crowded cocktail party provides a convenient way to start stirring the pot, as well as for the writer to show her knack for lively, acerbic banter, much of it coming from Eva, who early on decides that theres no one there she finds attractive. The man shes just met, Albert (Gandolfini), agrees. With her uncensored emotional expressiveness and ready humor, Eva is an instantly accessible protag onist, always ready to confide and/or make a joke about a situation or herself. No intellectual, she nonetheless strikes up a quick friendship with an odd bird, Marianne (Holofcener regular Catherine Keener), a divorced poet whose refine d lifestyle Eva admires and who speaks very openly about the many shortcomings of her unnamed former husband. The castoff, of course, is Albert, who, on a dinner date with Eva, proves to be spirited company. He is, admittedly, quite heavy (Im planning on losing some weight. I really need to, says Gandolfinis character, who has to work at not being a slob. But hes got a daughter (Eve Hewson) heading for college as well, he and Eva laugh easily together and there are no awkward silences. Promising. In what turns out to be his second-to-last film (Animal Rescue will be released next year), Gandolfini is quite wonderful playing a mensch with plenty of faults but an hon est, relaxed, slyly funny gu y whos reassuring to be around.

Diversions/Puzzles By JAKE COYLE APFilm WriterMaybe, just maybe, Ron Howard and screenwriter Peter Morgan are perfect opposites: one a swinging playboy, the other a cold calculator. They have twice now collaborated on what you might call coin-flip films: movies about dueling, diametrically opposed forces. Their latest, the Formula One thriller Rush, is a lot like their Frost/Nixon, only on wheels. Chris Hemsworth plays the English bounder James Hunt, a dashing head of blond hair whose daring-do and highclass accent turn women into mush. Daniel Bruhl plays Niki Lauda, an analytical Austrian with pointy front teeth and a complete dearth of what you might call people skills. Whereas Hunt is a classic, carousing, big-ego racer, Lauda is a methodical tactician. The film, based on the lives of the two famous racers, captures the climax of their collision in the 1976 world championship that came down to the final race and that also featured a crash that left Laudas face terribly burned. Just as Frost/Nixon marveled at the contrast of flashy TVnewsman David Frost and the curmudgeonly Richard Nixon, Rush (also set in the s) toggles between Hunt and Lauda. Howards film is propelled by the clash of styles that repels them from one another, even as their mutual dedication draws them closer. Racing films often speed inevitably toward clichis of fast-paced living catching up to the men behind the wheel. Rush has plenty of that the adrenaline-fueled death dance required for the checkered flag. (Hunt describes his car as a little coffin, really, surrounded by high-octane fuel.) But it veers toward something much sweeter: a simple ode to rivalry. Rush makes for a terrific double feature with the superb 2010 documentary Senna, about Brazilian Formula One racer Ayrton Senna, which Howard has said he studied in making Rush. Formula One, which engenders far more passion in Europe than in the NASCARfavored U.S., has otherwise seldom turned up in the movies. Most notably, there was the handsomely photographed Grand Prix (1966). While Rush has plenty of exciting, highly saturated racing scenes as it makes pit stops through famous Formula One courses, Howard (whose directorial debut, 1977s Grand Theft Auto, was a far less accomplished tale of car chases) is more concerned with the personality conflict, played out at high speed. Without Thors hammer in tow, Hemsworth looks particularly unburdened in a role perfectly suited to his talents and natural bravado. Bruhl, though, is even more compelling. The German-born actor (who also makes a strong impression in the upcoming WikiLeaks drama The Fifth Estate), makes Lauda, with a clipped Austrian accent, endearing in his obsessive pursuit. Howard, with cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle, frames both actors in closeup, letting the ping pong of their competition fill the movie. There are other good supporting performances (Olivia Wilde, Alexandra Maria Lara as the drivers wives), but the film belongs to Hemsworth and Bruhl as they weave through a tumultuous racing season. Its not only one of the better racing films, its one of Howards best. For Morgan, who also penned another distinct sports film, 2009s The Damned United, its yet another example of his great talent for taking seemingly minor true stories and expanding them operatically. Whatever the nature of Howard and Morgans collaboration, it seems to be pushing them like Hunt and Lauda to greater heights.

Fathers continuing dalliance takes a toll on moms health Dear Abby NEWYORK (AP) Scandal star Kerry Washington is the worlds best-dressed woman, according to People magazine. Washington, 36, has proved a red-carpet risk-taker, wearing up-and-coming designers and making atypical choices such as a crystal-covered coral Miu Miu gown for the Oscars. At Tuesdays pre-Emmy reception, she wore a hot-pink cocktail frock. Unlike her character on ABCs Scandal, Washington says she doesnt wear many power-broker pantsuits. Washington, selected by the magazine editors, works with stylist Erin Walsh. People then tapped other tastemakers to pick their favorites, including Jennifer Lawrence for her high-fashion style, Jessica Chastain specifically for her red-carpet looks, Kate Bosworth for street style and Zoe Saldana for her denim style.
