By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY New-Sun correspondentSEBRING Thursday morning a handful of World War II veterans, most over 90 years old, gathered at the Military Sea Services Museum for a reunion. The men were all survivors of a kamikaze attack on the USS Terror, a mine laying ship. The kamikaze hit the Terror at night on her port side when the ship was off the Kerama Retta Atoll, taking part in the assault on Okinawa. The crew, most of whom were teenagers, had swept mines off Iwo Jima beaches just before the American attack on that island. It was sent to Okinawa for the same task. As it happened, mine sweeps were unnecessary as the Japanese had laid none. Warned of possible attacks, however, the Terror remained and had laid a smoke screen. Ed Wolfe, part of the third gun crew positioned back at the stern, said the crew had been summoned to general quarters early in the morning. By 4 a.m. the men had been at their stations for several hours without a hint of action. In fact, Wolfe said, it was dead quiet, all we were doing was waiting. For unknown reasons, a gun crew fired their 40-mm tracers from which alerted the Japanese pilots of the ships position. I looked up out of the side of eye and saw a plane coming on the port side, Wolfe said. It sounded like this, vroom, vroom vroom, each vroom growing louder. The engine was revving. It was quick. The explosion was big. Bob Smick was part of a gun crew facing the kamikaze. I was looking down the barrel as the plane came in, but I couldnt get the gun down low enough (to get a shot). It was a little frustrating. It was scary, said Bob Brewster, but I wasnt scared. Brewster, just 18 at the time, was first powderman on the No. 2 gun forward crew. He was in the process of loading a powder keg up the scupper to the gun when the plane hit. It was interesting to say the least, he said. It hit right amidships, between the stacks. The lights went out until we got the auxiliary lights working.Survivors of World War IIship hit by kamikaze hold reunion in Sebring N EWS -S UNHighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Friday-Saturday, September 27-28, 2013 Volume 94/Number116 | 50 cents www.newssun .com 079099401001 Classifieds A9 Crossword PuzzleB11 Dear AbbyB11 Editorial & OpinionA3 Healthy LivingB5 Local Golf NewsB3 Obituaries A5 Religion B7 Sudoku PuzzleB11 Sports on TVB2 Index Drying out High 89 Low 69Details, A12 WAUCHULA STATE BANK/Cheryl Hen; 61p6; 1.5"; Black plus three; process, front strip; 0 0 0 3 2 1 5 5 News-Sun staffSEBRING The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a hit-and-run that seriously injured a Sebring teenager Wednesday night.

The 44-page document covers everything including the vision, goals and maintenance of the countys law enforcement operation into the year 2015. The planning program was started by Sheriff Susan Benton in 2005, her first year as the countys top cop. We brought together around 175-200 citizens from all walks of life in our community and basically had a three-day workshop, Benton said. That group reviewed the history of the Highlands County Sheriffs Office, looking back a decade and determining how the growth of the county had occurred as well as the scope of local law enforcement duties. From that, the group was asked to look at a vision of what they thought the sheriff should be doing in future years. The first plan was for a single year, but the scope was enlarged to a revolving, threeyear plan, which rolls over withHCSO plans for the futureSafer roads, neighborhoods part of latest strategic outlook Benton See HCSO, A4 By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The Palms Apple Harvest Festival kicked off Thursday morning with a long line of patrons taking in the aroma of fresh cinnamon, apples and all smells of autumn.

By PHIL ATTINGER pattinger@newssun.comAVON PARK In a argumentative meeting that was attended by City Manager Julian Deleon, the Avon Park Police Pension Board voted 3-1 Thursday to retain an attorney, just in case the city takes legal action. Board member Jason Lister, elected to succeed ousted member Greg Warner as chairperson, voted against retaining attorney Matt Mierzwa of Lake Worth for up to $8,000. The Avon Park City Council removed Warner as chairperson of the Police Pension Board Monday and asked City Attorney Gerald Buhr to send a letter asking the pension board to comply with the citys public records request by Oct. 11. If not, Buhr has been authorized to sue for release of those records when he returns from vacation on Oct. 12. The pension board opted to retain Mierzwa just in case the City Council makes good on that threat, since board attorney Scott Christiansen doesnt handle litigation. The board agreed Thursday to hold a joint meeting with the City Council at 5 p.m. Oct. 17. No agenda of items to discuss has been set yet. Councilman Parke Sutherland, liaison to the board, said he would hope that the pension board can satisfy the records request before Oct. 11 and save the city and pension board from a lawsuit. I want to avoid litigation at all costs, Sutherland said.

Special to the News-SunMADISON As part of the UnitedHealthcare and Florida 4-H Eat4Health partnership, more than 70 4-H youth leaders from across the state gathered at Camp Cherry Lake in Madison on Sept. 14 to learn important skills about eating healthy and the importance of exercise as part of a program aimed at reducing obesity rates among young people and families in Florida. The youth utilized the training they receive to be Teen Health Ambassadors and to bring their knowledge and skills back to their communities to promote healthy living at schools and special events to help reach thousands of residents about these important health issues. 4-H youth leaders divided into teams and were challenged to successfully complete a series of fitness obstacles and nutritional challenges during a day full of health and fitness activities modeled after Survivor type competitions. 4-H youth leaders utilized the OptumizeMe smartphone application technology during the competitions to optimize their health and learning activities. UnitedHealthcares mascot, Dr. Health E. Hound, joined 4-H leaders as they worked together to complete a series of fitness challenges that included testing strength and endurance with fun exercises designed to burn calories as well as being able to advance to the next level of the competition by answering trivia questions on nutrition, diet and healthy living. TheUnitedHealthcare 4-H Eat4-Health partnership is in its third year, already activating thousands of 4-H Teen Health Ambassadors to make healthy choices for themselves and in the communities where they live. The activities at the Camp Cherry Lake retreat are part of a series of trainings and events made possible by a $30,000 grant provided this year by UnitedHealthcare to the University of Florida Extension Service, which provides 4-H programs to all counties in the state.Area youth become Teen Health AmbassadorsAn article that appeared in Success, a special section of the News-Sun on Wednesday, incorrectly stated that Roseann Kiefer is an audiologist. She is, in fact, a nationally board certified hearing instrument specialist. Kiefer, who grew up in Michigan, has a bachelor's degree in Business Management and was working on her masters degree in Audiology at University of South Florida until the death of her father, Richard Lampe, who started the practice of Lampe & Kiefer. It was after her fathers death that Kiefer returned to the practice full time. The office renovation of Lampe & Kiefer Hearing Aid Center was completed Jan. 1. In April, a fire next door caused a loss of the smell of new paint. The remodeling of the office was not a result of damage caused by the fire next door.

They present a world of information and tips that Community BriefsContinued on A5 By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID Even as the rains began to fall again, crews from the Highlands County Road and Bridge Department began pumping Thursday morning in an effort to reduce flooding in the Highlands Park neighborhood. The county-owned 6inch pump is designed to move as much as 1,500 gallons per minute in an effort to push the water more quickly in the direction of Lake Istokpoga. County officials had to wait for approval from the Southwest Florida Water management district before they could proceed with the action. They didnt get that word until late Wednesday afternoon The accumulation of water has displaced several families from their houses in the area. The hope is that by pumping down a low-lying area now referred to as the pond, a trickle-down effect will occur which in turn will lower water levels on nearby Washington Boulevard. Highlands County Road and Bridge Department Director Kyle Green said staff gauges have been installed to help monitor the progress of the pumping activity. However, Thursday morning he did not hold out much hope for a quick fix. It will surprise me if we see any effects before I have to report back to the commissioners at their meeting next Tuesday, he said. It took Highlands County commissioners nearly two hours Tuesday night to come to a decision on a plan that will involve temporary pumping, the digging of swales and placing of culverts, as well as negotiations with the water management districts. We cannot do any of this recommended work without their approval and we have been working with both the South and Southwest Florida water management districts, Green said. Green said that even with approval from the water management district, no digging can start until a significant amount of water has been moved out of the area. The entire project will be funded with assessments from the Highlands Park Special Taxing District. Over the course of the years, residents in the community have assessed themselves a little more than $262,000. Some of that money reportedly was to have been spent on a clubhouse, however speculation is that most or all of it will go to help solve the water problem that has been plaguing the area as storms have battered the county since the beginning of the summer.County starts pumping flooded LPareaWork to reduce future flooding has to wait until water level drops

UF has offered online degree programs for years, mainly on the graduate level. Its new effort, called UF Online, is different in that it will provide completely online undergraduate degree programs aimed at attracting freshmen as well as the more typical transfer students. State lawmakers authorized the effort and provided initial funding this past session, mandating that its in-state students pay 75 percent or less of the tuition paid by their on-campus counterparts. ... UF Online should attract a different cohort of students than the oncampus university. Their average age is expected to be 25, including those with jobs and other obligations that keep them from campus. Expanding access to the university at a reasonable price is a good thing. But theres also a risk of losing the in-person interactions that help students broaden their perspectives and make connections. In his latest State of the University address, UF President Bernie Machen gave examples of students in the universitys online programs. ... UF officials say theyre developing ways to create an online sense of community for students in the online program. Theyre also considering Gator Dens in some of the states major cities where those students could meet and see advisers. Another concern is that UF Online might become the go-to option for students of modest means, risking making the main campus a place just for students from wealthy backgrounds. UF must maintain diversity in all its offerings. It also needs to maintain quality. The university doesnt have to pay for on-campus infrastructure and gets other savings with online students, but it cant expect to ramp up enrollment so significantly without adding faculty and making other investments. UF Online offers great promise for the university to raise revenue and take a leading role in the growing field of online education. But UF and other universities in that field also must ensure that theyre not losing their best qualities in the process. An editorial from the Gainesville Sun.Virtual campus will lack traditionsThe University of Florida plans to boost its enrollment by about 50 percent over the next decade with a major caveat.Great people achieve great things. However, these great things are born from past fatal faults. What make us thrive are in fact our imperfections, nevertheless it is how we choose to interpret these actions and words that either makes or breaks us. To think we are right, I whole heartedly agree, is human nature. But what happens when we face ridicule and someone tells us that we are entirely wrong? For instance, when my mom tells me Im doing something wrong or I ought to improve my way of doing something, obviously I dont really want to do that because I think however or whatever Im doing is the most efficient way. But lately Ive noticed that whole theory wasnt getting too far. Literature and history are packed with events and happenings about people who think theyre all high and mighty, and turn out to be devastatingly wrong. To name a few, Hitler and King George III were both highly ignorant leaders who never thought of the common good, yet somehow managed to think they knew what they were doing. Similarly in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, Scout has a very honest, innocent perspective. However, she makes the same mistake of having good intentions and trying to help, which gets her in to more trouble; though she was able to redeem herself by being warned, she still never manages to figure it out. Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them, claimed Bruce Lee. Although that is completely brilliant of him to say, we often times do not want to confess our faults. Alas, this problem nevertheless can be unraveled! It may sound completely foreign, but I assure you it works. Close your mouth and open your ears. It may sound crazy, but true. We make mistakes and often times need help to learn from it, so when given a couple of pointers, take that and work with it. Life is what you make it. We have no instruction manual; we write our own rules, pave our own paths but to make it totally remarkable, we will at times need a little push to help us get back on our feet. We fall to rise and its critical to learn from our falls. We are as drawn to ourselves as the moon draws the tide; thinking we are the best. I have been graced with the understanding that there is at least one person out there who cares for our future, if not more parents, teachers, friends. People will be people, and though we are at times conceited, as a whole, we still have empathy and care. So, when they open the doors to success with constructive criticism, take it in and embrace that, because we all need a little help on the way. Gauri Persad is a student at Sebring High School.

A city gone wrongEditor: Sept. 23, 2013 was by far the worst city council meeting I have ever witnessed. Aside from a decision being made to dismiss Greg Warner (from the police pension board). I saw how the people have become divided. First, why were decisions based on basically? This was a major decision. I thought at one point and time maybe the council would take a suggestion made by Councilman (Parke) Sutherland to set a time frame to reply, but in the end he voted along with (Terry) Heston, (Brenda Gray) Chiles, and Sutherland himself to handle it otherwise. Thank you (Garrett) Anderson for not being a part of this. Most of the time, the mayor asks if anyone has any questions following a decision. This was not asked that night. I raised my hand, even stood up to come forward. I was not allowed. My advice to everyone attending the city council meetings, fill out the paper regardless of if you plan to speak or not to insure you will be given the opportunity to use your First Amendment, the Freedom of Speech. This is insurance that should you change your mind during the meeting, you can speak. You can always decline when the time comes. ... Thank God the one lady got to speak about and read an email concerning (City Manager) Julian (Deleon). Thank you for sharing this with the public. The worst, most shocking of Mondays meeting was the fact that the city has become so divided. At this meeting I saw what our city has become. There were people turning against each other more than anything I have witnessed in my time in Avon Park. Some during the meeting; more so after. There was no certain race against each other. There were people for and against Julian. People openly expressing between themselves and others their hate or in defense of Julian. ... People turning their noses up to others who would have normally smiled and welcomed each other. Hateful looks were given to each other. What I saw at this meeting was scary. What has our city come to? What will happen next? There is lawsuit after lawsuit filed against the city. Its obvious there is a problem here, a huge problem. Every time there is a problem in the city, its always brought up what Deleon has done for the city. People are tired of hearing this. Nothing, and I mean nothing, takes priority over humane decisions. The city is like a book. You cant judge a book by its cover, You must wait until you read it all. Just because the citys overall physical appearence is better doesnt necessarily mean the rest is good. ... To the people of the community, have an open mind. Go outside the box. Listen to who/what is said at city meetings, but listen to the feedback from the community and you will get the overall and real picture as to what is taking place in Avon Park. ... Come together Avon Park and put a stop to this and pray more than ever for Avon Park. May God have mercy on Avon Park. We must pray for change; we must.

MIAMI (AP) Shellie Zimmerman said Thursday that she hasnt been able to find her estranged husband to serve him divorce papers and that she doesnt know what hes capable of because he has changed since he was acquitted in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Shellie Zimmerman said on NBCs Today Show on Thursday that she is conflicted over her George Zimmermans assertion that he killed the 17-year-old Martin in self-defense. But she said she believes the evidence and respects the jurys verdict. Martin, who was unarmed, was fatally shot in February 2012 after getting into a scuffle with Zimmerman as he walked home from a convenience store in Sanford, Fla. Shellie Zimmerman later pleaded guilty to perjury for lying about the couples finances after her husbands arrest. She was sentenced to probation and community service. After standing by him, he kind of left and I guess kind of went on a victory tour without me, Shellie Zimmerman said. I thought I was living a life with him and that we were going to kind of rebuild after all this, and he had other plans for me. Zimmerman told Lauer she doesnt believe her believe her husband profiled Martin, who was black. However, she said she now doubts his innocence on the selfdefense claim. Shellie Zimmerman, 26, also said she stands by her account of a Sept. 9 altercation with her husband at the house they shared in Lake Mary. She told a 911 dispatcher that her husband was threatening her with a gun. The dispute took place just days after she filed for divorce. Shellie Zimmerman, her father and a friend were removing items from the home when her husband showed up and began taking photos. I didnt see a gun, but I know my husband, she said. I saw him in a stance and a look in his eyes that Ive never seen before. His shirt was halfway unbuttoned and he was putting his hand in his shirt and saying, Please step closer, please step closer.Special to the News-SunSEBRING Ballots are still available for todays hospice benefit dessert competition.

Now what we do is drop the completed year and add the third year out so we have a continuous three-year plan in place, she said. Among the listed goals in the plan are to create safer neighborhoods, enhance vehicular and pedestrian safety, assure accountability both individually and for the agency as well as assuring effective judicial and detention services. Benton said some of the goals have been challenging as the office has had to balance the levels of service against budget allocations, especially in recent years. She said the utilization of technology has been an integral part of the effort. When this all started, we didnt have laptops or cameras in our cars, she said. We also have continually upgraded our software as an ongoing part of our strategic plan. Even the recent move to the 800mz radio band for was folded in as a part of the long range strategy for the office. We knew thats the way the federal guidelines were headed, so that became part of what we incorporated into it, she said. As much as the plan has been a road map for the development of the department, Benton said that some goals and priorities have had to be re-shuffled as conditions in the county have changed. There are times we have had to back up and punt, she said. For instance, we had plans to build a facility that would house communications, property, evidence and laboratory and administrative functions so we could move all of that out of the jail building downtown, she said. That didnt happen and now we have piecemealed those duties out to other locations. Such adaptability, she said, highlighted the flexibility that has been built into the strategic plan so that the means to reach goals and objectives can be modified and amended. At the end of the day, said the sheriff, it is all about accountability. The plan has a tracking mechanism based on how well objectives have been attained on a sliding scale from partially or uncompleted, to fully accomplished. Benton said the plan has proved to be a good barometer of how well the office has functioned, despite setting the bar high. If you look back even to the first year, I dont think we have ever had a year where we accomplished less than 80 percent of our goal, which is pretty significant, she said. The strategic plan is reviewed and updated on an annual basis, just prior to the countys annual budget review cycle. The objectives are assessed and re-prioritized if necessary based on operating expenses, crime statistics or special initiative.

It is a political event sponsored by the Aiken County, S.C. Tea Party on Oct. 12 with a primary goal of increasing voter education. The Aiken County Tea Party was founded in October 2010 with a mission to promote adherance to the U.S. Constitution. Its motto comes from Sam Adams: It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men. Payne was asked to speak about his recent book, Vietnam Veteran Memoirs, and how noteworthy issues from the Vietnam War era relate to current developments in the world today. He will offer suggestions on how to approach current situations based on his experiences during the Vietnam War era. Payne has spoken at patriotic meetings across the state and uses episodes from his book to illustrate and promote concepts of freedom and liberty in a dynamic speaking performance. His book is available at or at to speak at political rally in S.C.Special to the News-SunSEBRING All Gods creatures, along with their human owners are invited to St. Agnes Episcopal Church at 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6 for a Blessing of the Animals.

Knapp said that searching email and finding the pertinent files was an area of expertise and was not willing to let just anyone go into her personal computer or email account to help her find messages and documents. Knapp also said shes already had Mierzwa helping her to interpret requests for records sent by Deleon, which she said have changed several times. Mierzwa, in a letter to the pension board, said he had already spent time beyond the $2,500 billable hours spending cap the board had set for his services answering requests that have been extensive, changing and inconsistent. Deleon said he merely added to requests, but Christiansen said he had seen requests change from asking for certain items to stating those items were not needed. He said the city had been waiting eight weeks for the records, which was unacceptable. Knapp said she didnt want to discuss further what records were required because thats was the point of the joint meeting on Oct. 17. Lister asked Knapp to explain why emails appear to talk about terminating the pension plan and were only sent to certain members. Knapp said she had received several inquiries from police officers about the pension plan last October when the city transitioned from having its own police department to contracting with the Highlands County Sheriffs Office. Officers who were vested and who werent vested in the city-based pension plan wanted to know what would happen to their retirement funds, she said. She referred them to officials in Tallahassee who understood the differences between the city plan and the Florida Retirement System. This board cannot close or terminate the plan, Knapp said. Only the city can do that. Lister then asked why Knapp sent emails to only the board chair and not to other board members, and Knapp said that was board policy because sending to everyone would put her and the other members at risk of violating Floridas Sunshine law. Florida Statute, Chapter 286, bars members of governmental or quasijudicial boards from using phones or electronic communication to discuss matters pertaining to public business. A message may be sent, but once members start having a dialogue, they could fall victim to a violation. Such communications are public record, which is why Deleon is asking for them. Whats getting lost (in this issue) is that the public or retirees have a right to call and ask anything, Knapp said. Deleon accused Knapp and Warner of having an agenda and Lister said he was tired of the negativity surrounding the issue. Knapp said she sent the emails that were requested and was tired of the lying. Former police officers Jose Molina and Jamie Davidson said they were frustrated all the arguing. The way I feel about this, it hurts, Molina said. I think we deserve better, OK? I hope you figure out how to solve this problem. Davidson, a former board member, said he only saw a political agenda surrounding the management of his, Molinas and other officers money. Sutherland said the arguments over public records would not endanger the retirement plan, but Davidson said any legal costs would still affect the citys bottom line and he didnt agree almost 20 years ago to put his life on the line to be worried about his pension and the board being sued over public records. This is going to get bad if some people dont step up and just plain talk (about it). Get this out in the open, Davidson said. Warner was present at Thursdays meeting, but did not address the board. In related business, Lister suggested and the board voted to look for a web-based email service for board business to make pulling emails for public records requests easier and faster. Continued from A1Police Pension Board selects Lister as chair, hires lawyer Forty-eight men lost their lives and 123 were wounded, but the crew managed to keep the ship afloat and make it back to safety. In the 68 years since, the men got on with their lives, going their different directions. With the encouragement of Allie Ryan, who used to live locally, they hold regular reunions. It was clear from the hugs and laughter the men were close. Listening to them reminisce and catch up, it also was clear their shared experience had a great deal with their bond. Wolfe said it succinctly, My best ship was the Terror. Continued from A1Crew of USS Terror reunites in Sebring By LAURAN NEERGAARD AP Medical WriterWASHINGTON More children than ever got vaccinated against the flu last year, and health officials urged families Thursday to do even better this time around. Far too many young and middle-aged adults still forego the yearly protection, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warned. And this year, Americans have an unprecedented number of vaccine options to choose from: The regular shot; the nasal spray; an egg-free shot for those allergic to eggs; a high-dose shot just for those 65 and older; and a tiny-needle shot for the squeamish. The bigger change: A small number of the regular flu shots, and all of the FluMist nasal vaccine, will protect against four strains of influenza rather than the traditional three. Theres something for everyone this year, said CDCs Dr. Anne Schuchat. A severe flu strain swept the country last winter, sparking a scramble for last-minute vaccinations. Theres no way to predict if this year will be as bad. But it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to take effect, so health officials say early fall before flu begins spreading widely is the best time to start immunizations. Now is the time to get vaccinated, said Dr. Paul Biddinger of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. Dont wait until its in your community. Boston declared a public health emergency last January when hospitals were filled with flu patients, and Biddinger said he treated many who openly regretted not having been vaccinated. January and February typically are the peak flu months in the U.S. But small numbers of flu cases circulate for much of the year, and Biddinger said a couple of people have been hospitalized already. That first cough or fever is not the time to think about influenza vaccine, Schuchat said. Flu vaccine is recommended for nearly everyone ages 6 months and older. Yet just 45 percent of the population followed that advice last year. Flu is particularly risky for seniors, children, pregnant women and people of any age with asthma, heart disease and other chronic diseases. Two-thirds of adults 65 and older were vaccinated last year. So were nearly 57 percent of children, an increase of 13 percentage points over the past two years. The number is even higher among babies and toddlers 77 percent and Schuchat said pediatricians get the credit for pushing flu vaccination in recent years. The CDC doesnt recommend one vaccine over another. All flu vaccine protects against two strains of Type A.More kids protected from flu; CDC says keep it up

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe Blue Streak Cross Country teams peformed well last Saturday in the large North Port Invitational. On the boys side, with 21 teams represented and competing, Sebring took an impressive second place with a series of strong finishes. Eric Foster lead the way by taking sixth with a time of 17:14, with Damian Foster also finishing in the top 10, taking ninth in 17:28. Malcolm Holdmans 18:18 time was good for 15th, while Tim Koning (19:14) and Wesley Koning (19:58), took 28th and 44th, respectively, to round out the Streaks scoring finishes. Lucas High and Andrew Rivera ran well, each within the 20minute area, to show they will likely have an impact as the season progresses. For the Lady Streaks, in a field of 19 teams, their finishes landed them in ninth as a team. Ashley Castelli, Dianna Salinas and Kaytlyn Cooper all finished within 11 seconds of one another to place 32nd, 35th and 37th in a tightly contested grouping. Ashley White placed 79th and Erin Lamb 82nd to give Sebring their scoring finishes. Christen Pyles and Marilyn Lorino also finished the course not too far behind to add to the depth of the squad. The teams are back at it this weekend, as they take part in the Seffner Christian Invitational.By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt is a festive mood in Lake Placid this week leading up to this weekends Homecoming activities. And the Lady Dragons of the volleyball court wasted little time with their task at hand Tuesday night, so they could get back to enjoying their week, sweeping visiting McKeel in three sets. But to their coach, the angst to get the job done was evident and not necessarily in a good way. Im happy with the win, she said. But we really didnt play like we can. Its definitely Homecoming week. Lake Placid started out strong enough, taking a 25-15 win in the opener, behind four kills fromBy DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Heading into Tuesdays home match against visiting Mulberry, Lady Devil head coach Shane Wirries was confident but not too expectant. Were playing well and seem to be making progress with staying consistent, he said. But youre not going to be able to really tell too much from a match like this. That is often the case when a team faces an overmatched opponent, during a schools Homecoming week no less, such as Avon Park was this night. The Panthers are showing signs of progress, but still have a ways to go and are a few seasons away, and the Devils showed them how far away they are in a 25-11, first-set win. But then, as can happen in a match like this, after a win like that, Avon Park let their level of intensity and focus lag and let Mulberry stay uncomfortably close before finishing off the 25-20 win. Sparked by the tooclose call, the intensity level kicked back up a few notches and the Devils made short work of it in reestablishing their dominance with a 25-9 win. The victory moves Avon Park to 5-1 in District 9-4A play, which they looked to build on Thursday with a district tilt at Frostproof. Then it was off to enjoy Homecoming weekend. Thanks to the abovenormal rain in Sebring, Lake Jacksons water level has come up not inches, but feet, providing some of the best shallow water fishing seen on this lake in years. Three months ago, at the start of our rainy season, the boat ramp was 8-feet out of the water. A few fishermen with 4-wheel drive trucks were able to launch their boats, but most of us just stayed clear of the lake. Getting from Little Lake Jackson to the big lake was next to impossible using the bridge over Route 27 since it had, at best, only inches of water flowing from one lake to another. But all that has changed. Grasslines, bushes and small trees that were growing along Lake Jackson's shoreline are now in 3-4 of water. Docks that months ago you couldnt get a boat alongside are now deep enough to swim off of. And the bass love it! So do the fishermen and women who have realized they dont have to travel far from their homes to find quality bass fishing. Weve been holding weekly bass tournaments on the lake for the last couple of months and virtually everyone who participates has had no problem weighing in three fish. Some of the guys claim to have caught as many as 40-50 bass in a single, four-hour tournament. The fish have been shallow for most of the summer, using the grass and the shoreline vegetation to feed and ambush prey. Most have been in the 2-3 pound range, although a few 5 pounders have been caught in our weekly tournament. The key is to work that shallow water cover with frogs, flukes, spinnerbaits and worms. Ive fished around the entire lake, as well as Little Lake Jackson and I can tell you, its hard to find shoreline cover that isnt holding a bass or two. And the fishing hasnt just been good for those of us fishing from a boat. Shore fishermen, as well as waders have found the newly flooded areas to provide plenty of bass fishing action. Flippin Out Salons owner Shannon Crivello, REDS IIs neighbor in the Parkway Plaza, recently stopped in and picked up some plastic Yum Dingers saying she was going to walk down to the lake and try her luck. An hour later, she returned with Boo Crivello having caught eight bass and running out of hooks and worms. She did admit that a few of the worms and hooks ended up in the trees, but many more were lost from quick attacks from bass once the bait landed in the water. Shannon has been operating her salon for the past year and has a steady flow of new and old clients. She provides hair cutting and styling for all members of the family, as well as special events where she cuts and styles everyones hair. So if you like to talk fishing while youre getting your hair cut, give Shannon a call at 863402-4605 or Get her advice on the hot new fishing baits and then stop next door at REDS II and tell Amy that Shannon sent you.

By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Revenge was in the air and the Blue Streak gym when the Desoto Bulldogs arrived. In their last meeting the contest went to all five sets to have the Bulldogs come out on top over the Streaks in a heartwrenching district loss. Coming into this match, the Sebring squad knew it was going to be crucial to win this match to become the leaders of the race for the top seed in the district. The Streaks started off the match in the right direction, having two kills by Hannah Gotsch and Caylin Webb putting Sebring at a 3-1. The Bulldogs gained momentum and were able to take a small lead ahead of the Blue Streaks. A Hannah Tucker kill followed by a tip tied the score at 13. Sebring head coach Venessa Sinness called a timeout down four points 19-15 in order to gain back their lost momentum. A kill by Jordan Hinkle and Gotsch kept the Streaks alive at 24-18, but they eventually fell to Desoto 25-20. The second set would pan out extremely similar to the first. The sets were so similar that the score was exactly the same with the second also ending at 25-20 with the Bulldogs on top. The third set, however, was the mood changer of the night. The Streaks started off to a quick 9-4 lead after a solo block from Cadie OHern. OHern added a kill to keep the lead at 10-7. Three kills by Hinkle allowed Sebring to keep their lead at 15-11, forcing Desoto to call a timeout. The Blue Streaks continued their run by tacking on four points to make the score 19-13 and making the Bulldogs call their final timeout of the set. An ace by Lindsey Whittington would make the set 23-14 and the set would be called after an OHern kill with the final 25-16. Keeping Sebrings hopes of revenge alive. But after battling back to steal a set away from the Bulldogs, the Streaks fell again to Desoto after a neck-and-neck fight to the end. The fourth set score would surprisingly end the same as the first and second, 25-20, to spoil Sebrings search for atonement. I just dont think we were there mentally all night, head coach Venessa Sinness said. We saw what we could do when we were there, in the third set, but we really just beat ourselves tonight. The Streaks will have another chance at vengeance in a little less than one month, when the district tournament commences and they are likely to be the second seed. But they will have to take care of a little district business Tuesday night as they travel to Hardee to try to rebound and add another win to their record.Golf HammockLast Monday, Sept. 23, the Mezza Group played Individual Pro-Am Points.

By KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressORLANDO Theres a standard response UCF coach George OLeary gives when hes asked about the opportunity that comes with playing opponents from college footballs top-rated conferences. Its not enough to just play those games, he says. Winning them is what matters. No. 12 South Carolinas visit to UCF on Saturday wont be the first time that the Knights have had a chance to notch a signature victory during OLearys tenure. But at 3-0 and fresh off one the its biggest wins in school history at Penn State, suddenly the program thats previously only nibbled at grabbing some national attention could finally do it. They understand its a big game, OLeary said of his teams mindset this week. The biggest thing is not who it is its national TV. The kids understand that. They understand it very well. Both teams understand that because youre sending your resume out. Thats what youre doing. UCFs fan base didnt really know what to expect out of this season with the Knights entering their first year as members of the stillevolving American Athletic Conference. The conference formerly known as the Big East will undergo another makeover this summer, but for one more year its winner will gain a spot in the Bowl Championship Series. Beat the Gamecocks (21) in front of a national television audience, though, and everyone not just upcoming conference opponents will have no choice but to pay attention to one of Floridas programs not named the University Florida, Florida State or Miami.Page B4News-SunFriday, September 27, 64 WEST COLLISION; 9p4.98; 2"; Black; tv p/u; 0 0 0 3 2 1 1 9 DR.

Second place went to the team of Willer/Watkins with three bass weighing 7.02 pounds. Lots of fish were caught and released and most of the teams weighed in three bass. We continue to see good fishing on this lake with lots of fish in the 2-3 pound range, but few big ones are being caught. In 11 tournaments, only two fish over five pounds have been weighed in. The $1 big bass pot, which requires a bass over 6.5 pounds to win, continues to grow.Friday, Sept. 20, Lake Glenada TournamentWe had a good turnout on Lake Glenada with seven boats. The team of Williams/Michalak took first place with three bass weighing 7.86 lbs. This was their second win on Lake Glenada. Second place went to the team of Ameling/Stanley with three bass weighing in at 6.56. No big bass were weighed in and the big bass pot continues to grow. Friday, Sept. 27, will be our last tournament on Lake Glenada. Beginning on Oct. 4, we will be holding our weekly tournament on Dinner Lake and it will be a One-Man Tournament instead of a team tournament. We will also be going to a five fish limit, all of which must be 14 or greater with only one fish larger than 22. The big bass pot will be $2 instead of $1 and the bass must be 8 pounds or larger to win. The big bass pot on Lake Glenada will be won on Friday, Sept. 27, by whoever catches the largest single bass. Anyone fishing the tournament for the first time can catch up the big bass pot by paying $1 for each of the previous tournaments and still win the total pot.Splish-Splash Last Fridays tournament on Lake Glenada was a tough day for me and my partner, Burt Watkins of Avon Park. We only boated two fish all day, the first one of these week day tournaments where I failed to bring in at least the limit of three bass. Not sure why, since Lake Glenada has always been a good lake for me. In fact, Ive caught more big bass out of Lake Glenada than any other lake Ive fished in Florida, including Okeechobee and Istokpoga. But its been a tough lake to crack this year. So at five minutes to Noon on Friday, Burt and I finally made our last cast and decided to head on in. Most everyone was already at the boat ramp, loading boats or preparing to load when I eased up to the new dock to let Burt off so he could get my truck. Rather than step out of the boat, Burt chose to jump off the front onto the dock and with all that forward motion, he kept right on going. Burts no small guy and everyone heard the splash as he hit the water and quickly submerged. I watched as I removed my cell phone and wallet, expecting to jump in after him when he re-emerged, laughing and dog paddling after his hat. Pulling himself onto the dock with the help of a couple of guys, he was quick to laugh it off, and fortunately, he wasnt hurt. It was a fitting end to a tough day on the water and we all had some good-natured ribbing for Burt. But it reminded us all of the dangers of stepping out of a boat onto a stationary dock thats often wet and slippery. He could have been seriously hurt. At the dock he received a couple of 8.5s and a 9.0 for his less than perfect dive. My guess is Ill be getting the truck from now on. Just a quick thank you to all the folks who have called, emailed or stopped in the store after reading my column. I appreciate the kind words and encouragement. As always, please feel free to give me a call or stop by to talk about what, when, where and how the fish are biting. I love to fish, and I love talking to people who love to fish!

The Lady Wildcats inched a bit closer in the second set, though not much really, as the Dragons still won going away, 25-16. Bella Caraballo stepped up offensively with four kills and Mary Grace Bates was strong on the back line with seven digs. McKeel then did make things a bit more interesting in the third set, staying close throughout and within a point at 18-17 before Lake Placid pulled away, scoring seven of the final eight points for a 25-18 win. Bates really stepped it up in the set, racking up 13 digs to bring her match total to 26 on the night. Dani Daigel got into double figures in digs as well, totaling 10 for the evening. Baldwin and Caraballo added four and three kills, respectively to tie them for the team lead for the match with 10 each. Corley finished her night with four aces and two blocks, and Andrea Barajas put the offense in motion with 21 assists. Now at 5-0 and atop the District 9-4A standings, Lake Placid went out of district Thursday night at Hardee before kicking back and enjoying their Homecoming weekend.CONTINUED FROM B1Bass Tournament switching lakes for Fridays LP stays undefeated in district By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING The ChumpCar World Series returns this weekend to the Sebring International Raceway for the Slightly More Than 12 Hours of Sebring. Competitors began arriving earlier this week for the competition, which is slated to run better than 14 hours around the historic airport circuit. Sebring will be well represented at the race which begins at 9 a.m. Saturday by the Carlisle clan. Jason Carlisle, his father Lenard, and his son Trenton will challenge the 90-plus competitors who are slated to take to the track. We really are a Sebring team, he said. My dad was born at the old Weems Hospital here as was my grandmother and my greatgrandpa was actually the first casualty when they first were building Hendricks Field out here during World War II, Collectively, the Carlisles are known as Backwoods Racing, and will put the No. 77 Mustang GT on the track. One of their primary goals is to better their finish from last year, when they came in 43rd out of a 105car field. We had a couple gremlins that bit us, he said. We had some electrical problems that took some sorting out. But since that time weve progressively gotten better and faster. Carlisle said when the car ran the airport circuit last year, it ran well. In fact, they turned in the fourth fastest race lap time. Despite the massive starting grid, Carlisle said like the early days of Sebring, there is a significant amount of attrition anticipated as competitors drop out for one reason or another. He said the familys goal has been to make their machine as reliable as possible to stand up to the grind at the 3.72-mile raceway, which is noted for its toughness. Carlisle got the ChumpCar bug when he was invited to see a race. I watched it for about a half hour then I told my dad Im going out to find a car so I can do this, Carlisle said. He took driving classes including those offered by the Sports Car Club of America (SCCA), the Porsche and BMW Owners Club (PBOC) and the National Auto Sports Association (NASA) sessions among others. All three of us have plenty of track time, he said. But those sessions really dont prepare you for actual wheel-to-wheel racing, Although both Carlisle and his father have had actual race experience, this will be the first time in action for 16-year-old Trenton. He has been waiting years for this and he finally meets the age requirement, said Carlisle. This will not be the first time out for the car, which ran last year at Sebring, and has been on the grid for events in Daytona, Charlotte and at Road Atlanta. Carlisle said that being able to run the major circuits, which have seen the greats of stock car and road racing, was one of the biggest draws for him to get involved in the sport. The feeling of just being on those tracks is just amazing, he said Unlike the big, professional teams, the Carlisles have no major sponsors. The car carries the name of their irrigation company Living Waters Services as well as the Lake Wales-based D-Tire Shop. They give the team a break on their tires. Theres also significance to the cars number, 77. Well, my wife was born in 1977, and in the Bible seven is the perfect number, he said. It has meaning behind it. Free viewing is offered in the general admission area from the viewing mounds at the Track around the Big Bend to the Hairpin. Those wanting to get closer to the action can get passes that will allow them into the Paddock area. Those are $10 each.ChumpCar World Series hits Sebring on Saturday UCF welcomes opportunity against No. 12 Gamecocks


TALLAHASSEE (AP) Data shows that oxycodone was responsible for most of the drug-related deaths in Florida last year. The Florida Medical Examiners released the report on Tuesday. The data shows there was an 8.8 percent decrease in the total number of drug-related deaths last year from 9,135 in 2011 to 8,330 in 2012. The number of deaths caused by oxycodone decreased by 41 percent, but it remains the drug responsible for the most fatalities. The deaths caused by cocaine decreased by 9.1 percent while methadone dropped 21.4 percent. Heroin had an 89.5 percent increase as the cause of deaths from 2011 and the report named it the most harmful drug. WASHINGTON (AP) From mercury to pesticides, Americans are exposed daily to environmental chemicals that could harm reproductive health, the nations largest groups of obstetricians and fertility specialists said Monday. The report urges doctors to push for stricter environmental policies to better identify and reduce exposure to chemicals that prove truly risky. But its likely to scare pregnant women in the meantime. Thats because during the first prenatal visit, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists wants doctors to ask mothers-tobe about their exposure to different chemicals. Theyre also supposed to teach women how to avoid some considered most worrisome during pregnancy. What were trying to get is the balance between awareness and alarmist, said Dr. Jeanne Conry, president of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. Specialists with ACOG and the American Society for Reproductive Medicine examined research about industrial chemicals and pollutants that people can absorb from the air, water, food and everyday products. Few chemicals hit the market with good information about safe levels something the groups hope to change. But certain chemicals are linked to infertility, miscarriages, birth defects and other problems, the committee said. Risks are greatest for women with high on-thejob exposure. So doctors should ask about workplaces during that first prenatal visit, the committee advised. But the report also cited research suggesting virtually every pregnant woman is exposed to at least 43 different chemicals. Its unclear how many matter, but some can reach the fetus.www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, September 27, 2013Page B5 DR.

Its not all the time, but Im worried. It takes the fun out of it. My doctor said dont worry. But I do. E.L., Dunnellon Answer: Orgasmic headaches or plain old sex headaches affect about 1 in 100 people. The pain often begins at the base of the brain and radiates to the front of your head at any point. It can happen any time during lovemaking. Most people get a sudden, sharp headache right at the Big O, as in orgasm. The headache comes on suddenly and its severe. I suspect migraineurs and clusterheads are more prone to these, although sex headaches have no aura, stars, blurriness, no halo, nothing... and theyre short-lived. If its postural the pain will reoccur as soon as you get out of bed and stand up but then it goes away quickly. Lots of you have sworn off sex. These headaches dont always happen to people who get lucky, they can also be brought on by exercise, coughing or exertion. Scary. You probably think you burst an aneurysm! Fortunately, its just a headache, but do all the tests and brain scans your physician orders okay?! A Russian study evaluated 19 participants who suffered from sex headaches. The researchers discovered that 58 percent developed headaches during foreplay but before orgasm, and 26 percent of them developed the headaches during orgasm. Some participants developed their headache postorgasm. Most headaches lasted for several minutes., although one unlucky persons did linger for 24 hours! The researchers suspect that sex headaches are caused from a disturbance of venous outflow and dysfunction of antinociceptive systems. Essentially, something is amiss with your blood vessel around your brain and your pain perception. Experts also wonder if it happens from an increase in blood (arterial) pressure combined with tension from big event. That makes sense to my good friend, Douglas Hall, MD, who has four decades experience in obstetrics and gynecology. He says, Endothelial dysfunction with low nitric oxide (NO) can cause vasoconstriction with resulting headaches. You can check NO levels with urine testing strips. NO is stimulated by estrogen and thyroid so you might have to increase these hormones to a physiologically normal level in order to prevent the headaches. Other ways to relieve these include the following (ask your doctor): Take an antiinflammatory about 1 hour before the big event, such as 500mg acetaminophen or 400mg ibuprofen. Dont be so active during sex, take it easier if you know what I mean. Maybe race a little faster to the finish line? If you linger for an hour to get there, your blood pressure remains higher, for longer. Prescribed beta blockers (propanolol) are sometimes used, but not with great success. Foods with natural beta blocking activity include bananas, potatoes, raisins, beans, celery, citrus, spinach and chamomile. Progesterone. Its the pregnancy hormone, but you should only apply this cream, or take pills if you are low. Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

In recent years, there has been a critical concern about the fact that new diseases are increasing due to childrens lifestyle choices. Poor eating habits and lack of physical activity that have led to an obesity epidemic. Overweight children and adolescents are at risk for many health problems such as asthma, high blood pressure (hypertension) and Type 2 diabetes. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has issued its first ever clinical guidelines for Type 2 diabetes. The new guidelines reflect the growing childhood obesity epidemic. In a study of 1,065 patients diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes before 30 years of age, 23.7 percent of these patients were blind by a mean age of 32 years due to complications of the disease. Research indicates that obese children have lower self esteem and self confidence. This has been linked to poor academic performance, having fewer friends and depression. For all of these reasons, it is important to try and prevent childhood obesity and identify overweight children quickly so they can begin treatment. Your childs pediatrician can help you identify this problem and perform an assessment to treat this condition at its early stage. There are plenty of statistics available that prove childhood obesity in America is at epidemic levels. In the last 30 years the number of children who are overweight has tripled to 15 percent. The mixture of fast food diets along with sedentary lifestyles is creating a generation of children who are facing adult health issues like high cholesterol, diabetes and heart disease. Poor nutrition choices and lack of activity are the primary child obesity causes. Parents must teach children about nutrition and exercise in order to help them lose weight. Here are some tips that can help parents to avoid obesity in their children: promote breastfeeding limit sugarsweetened beverages limit television time encourage outdoor activities with focus in participation, not competition do not watch television while eating include fruits and vegetables in your meal preparation September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. I believe it is time to encourage children and parents to improve healthy eating habits that can help them live a healthy life! Our offices offer oneon-one nutrition visits to address any concerns with eating or physical habits. Dr. Raisa D. Camilo, M.D, FAAP, FAAC is with the Sun 'N Lake Medical Group.

Metro ServicesFew, if any, families can say they have never had an experience with cancer. Cancer is a potentially deadly disease with no cure. While cancer can be treated effectively, there is no way for men and women to eliminate their risk of developing cancer. Though cancer may strike even the healthiest of persons, there are ways men, women and even children can reduce their risk. One such way is to consume certain foods that researchers feel can reduce cancer risk. Though precisely how these foods fight cancer remains a mystery, cancer researchers feel they can effectively lower an individual's cancer risk when combined to form a healthy diet. Beans: Beans boast numerous healthy attributes, and their potential to reduce cancer risk is one such attribute. Beans contain many phytochemicals that researchers feel protect the cells from the type of damage that can ultimately make a person susceptible to cancer. Beans also have been shown to decelerate tumor growth and prevent tumors from releasing potentially harmful substances that can damage nearby cells. Colorful fruits and vegetables: It may seem odd that a food's color can have an impact on cancer risk, but colorful fruits and vegetables contain more cancer-fighting nutrients than fruits and vegetables that aren't as flashy.Consuming such fruits and vegetables also helps men and women maintain a healthy body weight, an important benefit when considering overweight and obesity increases a person's risk for multiple cancers. Foods with folate: Folate is a B vitamin that can reduce a person's risk of developing several cancers, including those of the colon, rectum and breast. Those who are fond of a healthy breakfast to begin their day may already be getting healthy doses of folate, which can be found in eggs, fortified breakfast cereals, orange juice, and strawberries, among other foods. If toast is your breakfast of choice, opt for whole wheat toast, as whole wheat products are a good source of folate. Grapes: Studies have shown that resveratrol, a key ingredient in grapes, may prevent the type of damage that triggers the production of cancerous cells. Though scientists are not yet comfortable saying grapes, or beverages like grape juice and wine, can reduce cancer risk, they believe that the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of grapes make them a healthy option. Tomatoes: Tomatoes are widely beloved, and perhaps that love affair stems from the tomatos role in fighting cancer. Though the reasons are unknown, tomatoes have been linked to lowering men's risk for prostate cancer. One such study, a 1995 study from researchers at the Harvard Medical School, found that men who ate 10 or more servings of tomatoes per week reduced their risk of developing aggressive prostate tumors by nearly 50 percent. Later research from the author of the 1995 study found that processed tomatoes, such as those found in tomato paste and tomato sauce, were even more effective at reducing cancer risk than fresh tomatoes. Tomatoes have also been linked to lowering a person's risk for lung and stomach cancers. Water: Water may not qualify as a food, but it may protect people from bladder cancer. Potential cancer-causing agents in the bladder are diluted when drinking water. In addition, the more water you drink the more frequently you're likely to urinate, which means cancer-causing agents have less time to come into contact with the lining of your bladder. Many foods can help individuals in the fight against cancer. Though one food alone may not be potent enough to do the job, when several cancerfighting foods are included in a person's diet, the effects may be significant.

Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, informed the assembled leaders that the man was healed by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Then he boldly proclaimed, Nor is there salvation in any other name, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:812). The boldness of the Messiah was imprinted on their souls, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (John 14:6). Consider the following vital information about Jesus, the Savior! Jehovah. When Isaiah told of the coming of John (Isaiah 40:3), he was to prepare the way of Jehovah. When John started his mission, the apostle Matthew (3:3) identified, this preparer as the one spoken of by Isaiah with this statement, For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying: The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight. Lord is both of these passages also translates Jehovah i.e. the existing one; the eternal living one. Eternal. Since we are surrounded with things related to time, it is very difficult to comprehend the eternal Word but that is the very thing John 1:1 proclaims, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. And this is an inspired commentary on Genesis 1:1 and the word Elohim. This marvelous character of Jesus is expounded upon by Spirit inspired writers like Paul in Colossians 1:15-17 and John in Revelation 1:8, I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, says the Lord, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty. Sinless. There was only one who would dare ask such a question as, Which of you convicts Me of sin? (John 8:46). They desperately tried to charge Him with sin and set him up to sin, but For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin (Hebrews 4:15). This attribute of Jesus is a must for Him to be a perfect sin offering. The Hebrew letter continues in 7:26,27, For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens; who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the peoples, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself. Universal. Abraham was promised that his seed would bring forth a blessing to all the families of the earth. (Genesis 12:3) The Divinely inspired prophets for many generations added more information to this promised Messiah/Savior. Galatians 3:16 and 29 brings it all together, Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, And to seeds, as of many, but as of one, And to your seed, who is Christ. and And if you are Christs, then you are Abrahams seed, and heirs according to the promise. This universalism of the gospel was clearly stated in the world wide orders to take the message of Jesus/Savior to every creature. (Mark 16:15,16) Sufficient. The multitude of animal sacrifices were unable to take away sin as is clearly stated in Hebrews 10:1-4. Early is his ministry, John declared about Jesus, Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29). The Hebrew writer, in that marvelous treatise on the superiority of Jesus, declared And for this reason He is the mediator of the new covenant, by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions under the first covenant, that those who are called may receive the promise of the eternal inheritance (Hebrews 9:15). Sufficient! Abundant! Adequate! Superior! No wonder the same penman declares repeatedly that Jesus died once for all to obtain eternal redemption! The men and women who walked and talked with the Messiah give us some reassuring conclusions. Martha: Yes, Lord, I believe that You are the Christ, the Son of God, who is to come into the world (John 11:27). Peter: Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God (John 6:68,69). Centurion: Truly this man was the Son of God (Mark 15:39). Chief priest and Pharisees: What shall we do? For this Man works many signs (John 11:47). Amen!

Page B10News-SunFriday, September 27, 2013www.newssun.comA Native American and his friend were walking in downtown New York City near Times Square in Manhattan. It was during the noon lunch hour, and the streets were filled with people. Cars were honking their horns, taxicabs were squealing around corners, sirens were wailing, and the sounds of the city were almost deafening. Suddenly, the Native American stated, I hear a cricket. His friend said, What? You must be crazy! You couldnt possibly hear a cricket in all of this noise. No, Im sure of it, the Native American reaffirmed. I heard a cricket. He listened carefully for another moment and then walked across the street to a big cement planter where some shrubs were growing. He looked into the bushes, beneath the branches, and sure enough, he located a small cricket. His friend was utterly amazed. Thats incredible, his friend said. You must have superhuman ears! No, said the Native American. My ears are no different from yours. It all depends on what youre listening for. That cant be! said the friend. I could never hear a cricket in this noise. Yes, you can, came the reply. It all depends on what is really important to you. Here, let me show you. He reached into his pocket, pulled out a few coins, and discreetly dropped them on the sidewalk. Then, with the noise of the crowded street still blaring in their ears, they noticed every head within 20 feet turn and look to see if the money that tinkled on the pavement was theirs. See what I mean? asked the Native American. It all depends on whats important to you. What is important to you? To what or whom do you listen? Of all the things in this world that find priority in our lives, there is nothing more important than listening to Jesus Christ. In fact, while Peter was speaking to Jesus in Matthew 17:5, ... a bright cloud overshadowed them, and behold, a voice out of the cloud said, This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well-pleased; listen to Him! The command from God was true in the first century, and it is true today. We must listen to Jesus, our Savior and Friend. Through the word of God, He speaks to us today. Are you listening?

The 3-foot-by-3-foot granite monument weighs 850 pounds and sits in front of the headquarters of Faith and Action, a Christian outreach ministry. The group installed the tablets in a garden outside its offices in 2006, and the groups president says the tablets were angled so that justices arriving at the high court would see them. The Rev. Rob Schenck, who heads the organization, says the vandals pushed the monument forward so the commandments cant be seen, suggesting antipathy toward a message revered by Christians, Jews and people of other faiths. But SchenKarnowskick says his organization hasnt decided whether to press charges if security camera footage identifies the vandals.Senate chaplain prays budget battle will be resolvedWASHINGTON (AP) U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black is asking God to give senators the wisdom to know how to pass a budget that would avert a government shutdown and the backbone to do it. Hours before Texas Republican Ted Cruz began a filibuster in opposition to President Barack Obamas health care law, Black used Tuesdays invocation to express what he called the American peoples jitters over a possible shutdown next week. Cruz is urging his colleagues to oppose moving ahead on a bill that would fund all of government except Obamacare to prevent Majority Leader Harry Reid from stripping the health care provision from the bill. A test vote could take place Wednesday. Black asked God to give our senators the wisdom to know what is right, and the backbone to go through the doors you open.Judges weigh religious exemption for health lawWASHINGTON (AP) Another federal appeals court, this one in the nations capital, is considering whether forprofit businesses can be exempted from a contraceptive mandate in the health care law because of the owners religious views. Two brothers who own businesses in Ohio say the requirement would force them to violate their Roman Catholic faith and values. Two of the judges at Tuesdays hearing questioned whether business owners should have to give up their religious rights. But the third judge said he believes religious freedom must sometimes yield to the greater good. The case comes as two other appeals court circuits have issued conflicting rulings in similar cases. The Obama administration has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to take up a case involving Hobby Lobby and Mardel Christian bookstores. Their Christian owners won a temporary exemption from the mandate after the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the companies are likely to prevail in the case. But the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the Mennonite owners of a Pennsylvania furniture manufacturing company.Vatican official to be in Kan. for sainthood nodHUTCHINSON, Kan.

Dear Abby: I am the mother of a 4-year-old daughter and pregnant with my second child. My boyfriend and I live in a nice house and have a comfortable lifestyle. We each pay our own bills, and I pay half the mortgage that is in his name. I want to find another job after my maternity leave, but Im afraid my soon-to-be-fiance wont be willing to pick up the slack financially while Im temporarily unemployed. Isnt this the normal give-and-take that married couples go through? Shouldnt I expect him to help me if Im going through a rough patch? Are my expectations unreasonable? Expecting and Depressed in Texas Dear Expecting: I assume that you have discussed this with your boyfriend and he wasnt receptive. Your expectations wouldnt be unreasonable if you were married or at least engaged. But youre not. While you and I think he should help you financially over this rough patch, he may feel no obligation to do so. If thats the case, your notquite-fiance appears to be treating you like a roommate-with-benefits. Because you are not on the title of the house you pay half the mortgage on, there is no guarantee you will ever have anything to show for your contribution. In light of that, of course he should be supportive emotionally and financially if you leave your job. Expecting him to step up to the plate is not unreasonable. But whether he agrees with you and me is another matter. Please find out before you invest any more money or he impregnates you again. Dear Abby: My husband and I are well into a relaxed retirement. His successful, middle-aged son Rory has developed the habit of stopping by unannounced occasionally on his way home from work. This would be fine except that it falls in the middle of the dinner hour. Although we ask Rory to join us, he prefers to just stand over us and talk about his day while we eat. This wasnt his childhood home, so its not a matter of an extended familiarity with this residence. I have asked his father to speak to him about it, and while he agrees that his sons actions are rude, he refused to say anything. My husband is mildmannered and seems to be happy that Rory takes the time to see him. Because I have had a good long-term relationship with my stepson, I took him aside and politely explained that these dinner interruptions are discourteous. Rory blew up at me! I was astonished to see a mature man I respected act in such a childish manner. Now Im the culprit in a family rift, while my husband remains mute. Should I have focused on digestion and held my tongue? Disappointed Stepmom Dear Stepmom: Because your husband refused to say anything and wont back you up, it appears the answer is yes. While some people consider the dinner hour to be sacred, not everyone does, and your stepsons visits were only occasional. Your request might have been better received had you told Rory that his hovering makes you nervous, and if he didnt care to share the food you had prepared, youd appreciate it if he would at least sit at the table with you for everyones comfort.

Solution, B7 Diversions/PuzzlesBy PETER DeBRUGE VarietyLOS ANGELES (AP) Sometimes you have to travel 30,000 miles just to appreciate the guy who lives down the hall or so goes Baggage Claim, a movie about a Flight Attendant Barbie type who runs herself ragged chasing romantic prospects while her perfect suitor may as well be waving lighted wands from the runway the entire time. Girl, open your eyes! That kind of talkback is typical of playwright David E. Talberts popular urban theater shows, though this watered-down adaptation of his 2003 novel is too worried about attracting white audiences to let its African-American attitude take off. As a book, Baggage Claim allowed Talbert to entertain his female following with corny advice on finding the ideal man. After years of world travel, Montana Moore has developed a theory that all guys fall into one of five categories, ranging from overnight bag (nostrings fling) to trunk (old and worn), but the perfect man is like the perfect set of luggage: Full of compartments. So many that just when you think youve figured him out he surprises you with a hidden nook or a forbidden cranny. So if youre onboard with Talberts tortured metaphor and want to know the right match for Montana, just look for the one with the forbidden cranny. The trouble with Baggage Claim the movie is that it makes immediately obvious which man Montana (Paula Patton) should wind up with. Back in elementary school, neighbor William Wright (Derek Luke) proposed marriage with a ring retrieved from the bottom of a Cracker Jack box, and now, whenever Montana needs cheering up, good old Mr. Wright is just across the hall, ready to boil a lobster and mix apple martinis until she feels better. But Montana is hopelessly slow on the uptake. While its not unusual to want a man, Montanas reasons are all wrong: Her altar-obsessed mother (Jenifer Lewis) has been married five times, and shes been pressuring Montana to get hitched as well. Now that her much younger sister (Lauren London) is engaged, Montana calculates that she has 30 days to find a fiance of her own or risk irreparably disappointing her mother. And while her latest beau (Boris Kodjoe) has awesome abs, the rest of the package is far from perfect. Thats where Montanas boy-crazy best friends, fellow flight attendants Gail (Jill Scott) and Sam (Adam Brody), hatch the scheme to find her a husband in one months time: They will track the travel itineraries of all Montanas exes and arrange for her to bump into them en route, hoping that these men have matured into worthier suitors in the time since they split up. And so the film pretends that any of Montanas exes stands a chance: Theres the hiphop star (Tremaine Neverson, aka Trey Songz), the aspiring Congressman (Taye Diggs) and the international businessman (Djimon Hounsou), all of whom seem desperate to pick up where they left off the last time around. However handsome they may be, these characters just arent the right fit for Montanas baggage though Talbert manages a few decent laughs at their expense. Chemistry you can fake, but charm is far harder to pull off, and Baggage Claim never quite succeeds on that front. Talbert has clearly studied what makes similar films click, but instead of finding a fresh spin on old cliches, he merely repeats them (as when an unhappy Montana asks no one in particular, Could this get any worse?, cuing the rainstorm).Baggage Claim lost on arrival Tony Riveti Jr./Fox Searchlight/MCT Jill Scott, from left, Adam Brody and Paula Patton star in Baggage Claim.
