The three-day protest will begin t oday when tens of thousands of A mericas truckers are planing to d escend on Washington to take a stance a gainst the nations policies on top of a l ist of the truckersown woes and frust rations. McConniel is eager to join his fellow t ruckers on what has been dubbed the Truckers Ride for the Constitution. The government has been regulating the trucking industry so much that its hard for independents to make a living, McConniel said. The regulations and all the rules on top of the fuel costs, its just getting ridiculous. The owner and operator of Robert Brack Trucking has been in business for 15 years and has watched government change the way the trucking industry is being run. On July 1, the government implemented the newest set of regulations for truckers, which has McConniel and other truckers feeling frustrated and overpowered. McConniel and other truckers are unhappy with rules such as no driving between the hours of 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. more than twice a week and a Federal Motor Carrier Administration rule that says a driver may not drive after 60 hours on duty in a seven-day period or 079099401001 Phone ... 385-6155 Fax ... 385-2453 O nline: www.newssun.com N EWS -S UNHighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Friday-Saturday, October 11-12, 2013 Volume 94/Number 122 | 50 cents www.newssun .com WAUCHULA STATE BANK/Cheryl Hen; 11.25"; 1.5"; Black plus three; process, front strip; 0 0 0 3 2 7 0 5 Battle of the bestLake Placid tops APto clinch top spot in district SPORTS, B1 Hanks stellar on sea Tom Hanks is masterful in the REVIEW, B9 Pleasant High 87 Low 65Details, A10 Classifieds A7 Crossword PuzzleB9 Dear Abby B9 Editorial & OpinionA4 Healthy LivingB5 Religion B6 Obituaries A5 Sports on TVB2 Sudoku PuzzleB9 Index Katara Simmons/News-Sun Shawn McConniel (from left), Brandi McConniel and Almeda Bariteau will join what they hope are thousands of fellow truckers this weekend to protest on Washington during the Truckers Ride for the Constitution.

King has been held in Highlands County jail without bond since his arrest. King, a divorced father of two, faces charges of aggravated manslaughter of a child and child neglect resulting in great bodily harm.

By PHILATTINGER firstname.lastname@example.orgAVON PARK When the Boys & Girls Club of Highlands County started serving elementary students in Avon Park seven years ago, the organization served 35 children. Now, with more than 300 children applying to take part, the organization has had to turn away as many as 75 children this year, said Wally Randall, director of community relations. That doesnt have to be, he said. The Boys & Girls Club has two portable classrooms on a quarter-acre plot at 217 Gwen Hill St., adjacent to Memorial Field and the Avon Park Recreational Complex. The land is leased from the city, he said. The two classrooms can only hold 45 children at a time, said Dawn Balsamo, Boys & Girls Club treasurer. Occasionally programs are held in the recreation center such as during storms but children are usually in the portable classrooms or the field, she said. If the Boys & Girls Club can get a long-term lease and more room, staff could expand tutoring to middleschool students and serve all of the children who signed up, Balsamo said. The Boys & Girls Club has been offered three portable classrooms and a double-wide mobile home from Avon Park Lakes Baptist Church as long as they can be moved by Dec. 31, Randall said. The club would like to get a long-term lease expand to 1.75 acres and start a capital campaign to build permanent structures. City staff advised Randall to talk to the School Board of Highlands County. The school board gave Memorial Field, including the soccer field and the walking/running track around it, to the city approximately 20 years ago. However, the gift had a reverter clause, said John McClure, school board attorney. The Avon Park City Council could give the property back to the school board, which could then lease it to the Boys & Girls Club directly. Randall asked about that at Tuesdays regular school board meeting. The school board gave consent for both McClure and Superintendent Wally Cox to look into it. Any change would only affect the property to the north of the running track and leave the rest in city hands, Cox said. Randall said the Boys & Girls Club has had great cooperation from the city, but added, Its way past time to expand. The Boys & Girls Club has had a 98.6 percent success rate getting students ready to enter middle school, Balsamo said. Randall said most would normally score in the middle to low range. He also said 98 percent of them qualify for free or reduced-priced meals at school, so the Boys & Girls Club serves them meals. In addition to tutoring, Boys & Girls Club helps children develop character, leadership, career paths and their education, health and life skills. Students can also participate in sports, fitness, recreation and arts programs, as listed at www.highlandsbgc.com/pr ograms. Once the Boys & Girls Club gets more space, staff would apply for a 21st Century grant for elementary school tutoring up to $70,000 reimbursement per year for five years, or $350,000 total, Randall sai d. That only reimburses what has been spent. Its not a lump sum payment, he said. Randall said the Boys & Girls Club in Sebring is in the fourth year of a 21st Century grant to provide tutoring for elementary and middle school students in partnership with the school board. The Boys & Girls Club gets one-fifth of that grant, he said. Overall, the Boys & Girls Club operates with a budget between $475,000 and $500,000 per year, Balsam o said, with approximately 75 percent from grants and tutoring fees. The rest of their funding comes from either direct donations or the organizations Emporium, a twostory thrift store at 248 Pomegranate Ave. in Sebring, Balsamo said.

If only Florida was as serious about i ts own water use. The dispute with Georgia relates to w ithdrawals from Lake Lanier, a reserv oir on the Chattahoochee River that p rovides water to the Atlanta area. The r iver is part of a system that forms the Apalachicola River, which flows to the Gulf of Mexico. Low levels caused by Atlantas excessive consumption have increased salinity in Apalachicola Bay, killing oysters and devastating the seafood industry there. Florida is seeking an equitable distribution of the water in the system. Georgia has refused to fairly share the waters that flow between our two states, so to stop Georgias unmitigated consumption of water we have brought the matter before the U.S. Supreme Court, Gov. Rick Scott said in a statement. Scott deserves credit for pursuing the lawsuit. Hopefully hell treat Floridas water use with a similar level of seriousness when lawmakers next pursue legislation protecting springs. Scotts statement focused on the economic impact of reduced freshwater flows on the oyster industry and that regions economy. The reduction of spring flows from groundwater withdrawals has a similar potential to harm tourism and the natural resources in our region. Atlantas unsustainable use of surface water threatens our states environment and economy. Floridas use of groundwater poses the same threats, and we dont need the Supreme Court to step in to address the issue. An editorial from the Gainesville Sun. State needs to get serious about water use F lorida is suing Georgia over consuming too much of the fresh w ater that should be flowi ng to the Panhandle. Its time E ditor: It is time for the people of o ur country to take a critical l ook, however painful, at w hat we have permitted the U nited States to drift into. The defenders of democrac y and human rights, the s tate best remembered as t hat shining city on a hill s o sure of the superiority of o ur democratic republic that w e have fostered regime c hange and supported intrus ive wars all over the world. Frequently, the law of u nintended consequences, or j ust bad judgment, has led to u s creating disasters by d estabilizing evolving democ ratic movement. Poor data, poor planning, b ad doctrine all of these h ave helped create countries w ho once admired and d esired to emulate us into c ountries and peoples who h ave learned to distrust us; b oth for acts of duplicity and a bandonment. We now display for the w orld to see what has turned i nto inherent rot in our own b ody politic, zealots intent o n destroying anything that g ets in their way to achieve d ominance and secure total c ontrol of the governments o f our nation and states w hile using posturing and p latitudes to seduce the elect orate. ... And now we display as o ne of the final lessons of h ow truly dysfunctional our o wn city on a hill has b ecome; legislators intent on c losing the government d own, regardless of the p otential for great harm, z ealotry displayed for the home folks, get reelected t hats all that matters, advoc ates of small governments, l ower taxes and yet want to s upport a worldwide military t o promote our economic i nterests. How persuasive in w inning worldwide approval a nd acclaim while passing l egislation at home designed t o frustrate the social a dvances of growing minorit ies by limiting their opport unities to vote, destroy prog ram to improve educational o pportunities, price higher e ducation out of reach, decim ate health care for the poor a nd then loudly disparage o ther western countries who e xcel in these areas. Our middle east advent ures has destabilized the r egion to such an extent that o ur righteous wars have e ssentially destroyed the i nfrastructure of much at the a rea, rekindled the conflicts t o the verge of new civil w ars, and largely destroyed t he local economy, in addit ion to killing untold thous and of their citizens and t urning millions into refugees. Intervention or isolation are not our only options. Windows of opportunity to resume diplomatic dialogues for problem solving should always be pursued. If our adversaries are skeptical of our bona fides we need only look at the history of our dealing with these people in the past decades to appreciate the causes for their concerns. Randy Ludacer Lake PlacidCruz is like an arsonistEditor: Texas Senator Ted Cruz, blamed by his fellow Republicans and Democrats as the chief architect of the ongoing government shutdown, struck back on Saturday, faulting President Obama and Senate Democrats for the political stalemate. Thats like an arsonist blaming the fire department for trying to put out the fire he started. Sandy Oleesky SebringPetty man is in control nowEditor: The Democrats are pounding the Republicans these days about the state of the country. Its all the Republicans fault, they are obstinate and stubborn. However, consider that the Democrats have controlled Congress since the last term of George Bush. They have run the government year after year without creating budgets. Now that they have brought the country to the edge of bankruptcy and default, they are trying to blame the Republicans. To make matters worse, we have a president who talks out of both sides of his mouth. He says that the debt is coming down. If this is so, why do he and the Dems want to raise the debt limit? The President is a petty individual. With the present shut down in effect, he closes all the things that the people are interested in, such as the World War II Memorial that was built with contributions from veterans, and the national parks, which people enjoy, but he manages to keep his government-run golf course open. With this petty man, it is anything to aggravate the people, make their lives more miserable. Dick Ford Sebring BouquetSTR8 UP thanks communityEditor: STR8 UPYouth Ministry is sending out a huge Thank You to everyone who made last weeks yard sale a success. We want to thank all of the volunteers, the donors and the customers. The sale was a great way to raise money, awareness, and make new friends, says Sammy Telesco, president. The ministry will continue to raise funds for the much anticipated second floor addition. The addition will be used as an academic room and computer lab. Str8 UP offers free tutoring and use of the computers for homework. STR8 UPYouth Ministry Lake Placid I remember when a billion used to be a number so big nobody could comprehend it, though it is still a massive number. According to Snopes.com 1 billion seconds equals 31.7 years. Abillion seconds have elapsed since 1981. One billion minutes is equal to 1,901 years which would take us back, almost, to the time Jesus Christ roamed the Earth. One billion hours is equal to 114,000 years which would take us back to the Stone Age. In more recent times, our inability to comprehend the sheer magnitude of 1 billion has been eclipsed by our inability to comprehend 1 trillion. One trillion is equal to one thousand billion. Our federal deficit has been averaging nearly $1 trillion since the collapse of 2008 causing us to rack up more than $5 trillion in new debt. In order to cover our nearly $4 trillion annual budget, the U.S. Treasury spends about $1 billion every two hours accumulating $1 billion in new debt about every eight hours. ABCs Jake Tapper tried to simplify these incomprehensible numbers. He compared Americas finances to a typical Americans finances. By removing eight zeros from Americas $3.8 trillion budget, he came up with a sum of $38,000. Now if you are a retiree, you are probably getting by OK if you are able to spend $38,000 a year unless your finances are as messed up as Americas. Though you are spending $38,000 annually, your income is only $29,000 you are growing your debt by $9,000 every year. Whats worse is that you already owe nearly $170,000 to creditors. Paying off that amount of debt with $38,000 in income would be hard under any circumstances. But of course your income is $29,000, not $38,000, so you must borrow about $175 a week to keep up with your expenses. In other words, the U.S. government is growing our debt by $175 billion a week, which is producing around $1 trillion in new debt ever y year. Still not comprehending how much $1 trillion is? Then youll like this description by Bill Bryson, one of m y favorite authors, from his book Notes from a Bi g Country. Bryson asks his readers to guess how long it woul d take to initial and count 1 trillion dollar bills if you worked without stopping. If you initialed one do llar bill a second, writes Bryson, you would make $1,000 every 17 minutes. After 12 days of non-stop effort you would acquire your first million. Thus, i t would take you 120 days to accumulate $10 million, and 1,200 days something over three years to reach $100 million. After 31.7 years you would become a billionaire. But not until 31,709.8 years elapsed would you count your trillionth dollar bill. We all understand that very large numbers are OK so long as they add up. So long as we have trillions o f dollars coming in to the government to balance ou t the trillions of dollars we have going out, we should be OK. But that is the frightening part. We are not even close to covering our spending. Our economy h as not recovered enough to generate the growth and t ax revenue we need to pay o ur bills. Piling on new entitlement programs and lots o f new regulations, rules and mandates certainly isnt helping the recovery. And so we limp along racking up debt and our leaders are doing little to address this incredible challenge. In fact, we hav e racked up more than $11 trillion in new debt since George W. Bush assumed office in 2002. We are the proud owners of nearly $1 7 trillion in debt, a startling ly incomprehensible sum. Yet too few people wor ry about it. Who can blame them? After all, $17 trillio n is only 17,000 billion dollars. Tom Purcell is a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review humor columnist. Send comments to Tom at Purcell@caglecartoons.com/.

70 hours in an eight-day period without taking 34 or more consecutive hours off duty, which must include two periods from 1-5 a.m. and may only be used once per week, or 168 hours, measured from the beginning of the previous restart. McConniel, and his drivers, find the regulations restraining. I like driving early in the mornings. Its safer, there is less traffic on the road. The reset hours is ... nearly impossible. Theres so much stuff that goes into getting loads dropped off, McConniel said. Drivers feel the only way to voice their needs and to take a stance against the government is to ride into Washington and make their presence known. They (congressmen) really dont understand. If we stop rolling, you guys are out of a job. Im tired of career politicians, McConniel said. Everything in this country depends on us. On these truck drivers and us running these trucks. McConniel along with his drivers Almedia Bariteau, Terry Collins, Scott Hauck, Jack Dillion and Debbie Fralish will join the thousands of other drivers and head to Washington today. Fuel costs, regulation and wages are just a few of the items truckers will be protesting on Capitol Hill. I dont know of anyone else local in the area who is doing this ride, but we are. Our parent company, 5 Daughters Trucking, has drivers going up there too, McConniel said. The The Truckers to Shutdown America Facebook page accumulated over 86,000 likes in a matter of days before the page was removed by the social media site, proof that the disgruntled American population is not only paying attention and supporting one another, but rapidly growing. Asecond page, Truckers Ride for the Constitution, has gained over 118,000 likes the past several days. Comments on the Facebook page show support and offer prayers as well as some unkind words about the federal government. Alexandra Odom, a Nebraska resident, posted this message Wednesday evening: The vibe that comes from this group and event makes me want to get into my car and join you guys... I wish you all the best, stay as safe as you can and god bless you! Other Facebook group members offered rides to disabled veterans wishing to join in the protest. Apost put up. Thursday morning claimed that the government and the Department of Transportation (DOT) have made plans to block I-495, better known as the Capital Beltway. Some reports say the protest will entail truckers clogging traffic on the Beltway by driving 55 mph as they circle Washington. Aroute map on the groups Facebook page shows that trucks will be directed to the Inner Loop of the Beltway and other participants in cars or motorcycles directed to the Outer Loop, according to the Washington Times. Maryland and Virginia state police have reportedly said they will not interfere with the protest as long as it is peaceful and doesnt create a safety issue on the roads. Its unclear how many truckers plan to take part in the protest, which some have said will be a dud due to it being held on a weekend. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, October 11, 2013 Page A5 CENTRAL FLORIDA CASKET STORE &; 1.736"; 6"; Black; obit page; 0 0 0 3 2 6 6 9 MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 3"; Black; rhr top of ad stack; 0 0 0 3 2 6 8 4 ICS CREMATION; 1.736"; 3"; Black; obit pg tv p/u; 0 0 0 3 2 7 0 7 ARCHER'S ART; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, buy 3 get 1 #2; 0 0 0 3 2 7 6 3 Special to the News-SunSEBRING Area young people ages 8-17 will have a chance to take to the skies on Saturday as Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 1240 hosts a Young Eagles Flight Rally and Pancake Breakfast at Sebring Regional Airport.

The NASGRASS racers most recently made a stop at the Sebring Thunder car show, where Graves fired up the engine of his racing mower during the Noon Thunder, where cars were encouraged to rev their engines simultaneously. Pinky can get pretty loud, Graves said with a smile. Following their appearance at the Oktoberfest in downtown Avon Park, the drivers will adjourn to the MowerPlex for tech inspection and practice laps in preparation for the second race of the NASGRASS season. In addition to the racing action, which draws participants from Lakeland to Naples, the first autograph session of the year will be held.

Continued from A2 d ent to defer it at this point, a t least until after our r etreat, he said. That gathering is set for O ct. 16 at the Heartland W orkforce Center on U.S. 27 s outh of Sebring. Members a re expected to discuss plans o n how to conduct business i n the wake of the defunding o f the group during recent c ounty budget discussions. The retreat is where we a re going to look at our s trategic plan, our fundraisi ng activities and things of t hat nature, he said. I think w e need to set measurable g oals and standards. Stephen Weeks, executive director of the IDA/EDC, said there was no formal agenda for what will be a wide open session. We left it open so members could talk about what theyre proposing to be the future of the organization, he said. During August budget hearings, Highlands County commissioners instructed IDA/EDC officials that they could live on their savings at least for the next six months while fundraising efforts were underway. They also indicated they wanted to see some results from efforts to recruit and retain business here. We have a limited amount of funding currently and thats our budget, said Weeks. In the meantime, a private sector fundraising effort has been under way. Weeks said that program has not been as aggressive as first hoped when it was started. Actually, we have been trying to figure out what we are going to do here at the office, said Weeks. Ive lost two people so I have been looking at the internal structure of the organization and the delegation of responsibilities. Continued from A1 is going to start, said Ogg. It appears to still be in a testing mode at this time. Elections officials will use data collected by the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles as a starting point. Any voter records that come back with an alien identification number will be further checked using data compiled under the Department of Homeland Securitys Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements or SAVE program. Currently, local elections officials have been using the a program from the Florida Division of Motor Vehicles they were given a year ago during an initial voter registration purge. The process is familiar to Ogg, who was put in charge of that program under former Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Joe Campbell. Basically what it does is it tells you the persons status, like their drivers license and citizenship information, she said. Its pretty tightly regulated. Going forward, supervisors of elections will have access to the SAVE program through the DOE. Although SAVE does not show undocumented residents, U.S.-born citizens, or American citizens who have renounced their citizenship, it does indicate documented residents and their current immigration status. Highlands County already has had at least one brush with an illegal voter. That occurred last year when citizen Richard Frankhauser revealed that he was aware of an illegal voting situation. After negotiations with then Campbell, Frankhauser revealed the name. There was no prosecution. Officials of the States Attorney Office determined that the statute of limitations had expired on the case. I dont like the statute of limitations on that, Ogg said. I have already brought that up. As part of the new process, once a voter receives a letter of non-citizenship, they will have 30 days to respond. They then can either pro vide documentation of proof or request a hearing with the supervisor. They also have the right to appeal the decision in circuit court. However, if after 30 days, if there is no respon se and the supervisor feels the information is accurate, th e voter may be removed. However, until that time, they will be deemed eligible to participate in any elections. Only supervisors of elections are empowered to remove a voter from the registration rolls. In all, Detzner is expected to hold five meetings with the states supervisor s of elections to explain the steps the state will be taking in an effort to identify non-U.S. citizens who may currently be on the rolls. Continued from A1 responded, but were unable to save her. According to arrest reports, King told investigators that his 4-year-old son put Amelia in the truck while he was inside his home at 507 Ryan Road. The son, however, reportedly told investigators that King took the children to the store to get a lighter and left Amelia in the truck for a long time. During Wednesday mornings pre-trial conference the state and defense teams spoke briefly regarding the case and its expected witnesses. Aforensic meteorologist and a medical examiner are two of the witnesses who will very likely testify in the case. The trial could begin as early as Tuesday. Defense attorney Shirle y Whitsitt is representing King, who was present during Wednesdays pre-trial hearing. Judge William Sikes wi ll preside over the trial. Continued from A1 Community Briefs King trial set to start next week Ogg learns about process for next purging of non-citizen voters The Highlands Little Theatre is also a part of the strut, which was moved to the downtown Sebring area for this years event.

Fishing with frogs and toads has become a way of life for many bass fishermen. For some, the artificial amphibians have replaced the spinnerbait, crankbait and plastic worm. And theres a very good reason for its popularity over the past couple of years. These plastic replicas of common frogs and toads catch fish. Not just fish, but really, really big fish. Ive fished with frogs and toads over the years and caught some nice fish, but for whatever reason, Ive always felt more confident with other baits. I need to spend a little more time froggin. But recently, Ive had a number of customers ask for different frog and toad lures so I decided to do a little research to see exactly what is out there. I was surprised to find the large number and wide variety and different choices there are. To quote Mike Pehanich, senior writer for B.A.S.S magazine, the quest for the perfect frog has stretched the creative minds of fishermen and manufacturers alike. Mike goes on to say that frog itself is a four-letter word is surely no coincidence. Just listen to the litany of expletives that missed frog strikes inspire. And hes right! Frogginmay be one of the most exciting techniques in all of bass fishing, but it can also be extremely frustrating. Casting out a frog or toad look-alike may seem similar to casting any topwater bait and working it back to the boat. But thats where the similarity ends. Allowing for a bit of imagina tion, these new frog replicas look just like a real frog or toad swimming through the pads, reeds an d hydrilla. And bass love to strike them! Astandard stop and go retrieve, or a frantic hop and skip along the surface is usually all thats needed to cause a bass to blow up on the bait. And when those blow ups hap pen, like many other baits, the angler is quick to set the hook, often too quick, pulling it away from the bass without getting a good hookset. Patience is needed, as well as nerves of steel if you choose to go froggin. Advice my father gave me 40 years ago when fishing a jitterbug, dont move the bait until all the rings in the water disappear. That takes patience, but often, the strike will come seconds aft er the frog lands in the water. When that happens, take a deep breath and do a slow coun t, 1001 1002, then set up. Frogs and toads are definitely big bass baits. I believe they are effective on big bass simply because they are slow moving, often stationary, requiring little effort for a big bass to attack what they believe is easy quarry Special to the News-SunTwo boys from Sebring, ages 11 and 12, were named local champions of the 2013 Knights of Columbus Soccer Challenge and have earned the right to compete at the district level. Pope John XXIII Council 5441 in Sebring sponsored the local competition at the St. Catherine Youth Center which took place on Saturday, Oct. 5. All youngsters ages 9-14 were eligible to participate.

Don Norton By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comAVON PARK It was t he expected battle T uesday night, as D istrict 9-4Afrontrunn ers Lake Placid and A von Park squared off f or the first three sets a nyway. Having fallen to the D ragons in the earlier m eeting of the season, t he Lady Devils were l ooking to force a tie at t he top of the standings b y giving Lake Placid i tsfirst district loss. It wasnt to be, howeve r, as the Lady Dragons c linched the top spot w ith a four-set win. The visiting gals in g reen held a steady, t hough small, lead t hroughout the opening s et never really pulling a way, but continuing to k eep the Devils at an a rms distance before s ealing a 25-18 win. Lake Placid came out m uch stronger in the seco nd set, getting off to an 8 -3 lead. But Avon Park was in n o mood to let this one g et away and went on a f ive-point run with a M arina Torres kill, to p ull even at 8-8. Things stayed backa nd-forth over the next f ew points, but a pair of M ary Grace Bates aces h ighlighted a Dragon run t hat pushed the lead out t o 21-13. But again, atonement w as on the Lady Devils m inds and they made a c harge to close the gap t o 22-19. After a Lake Placid t ime out was called by h ead coach Charlotte B auder to stem the tide, the Dragons got it back together and scored the final three points, highlighted by a Jacalyn Baldwin kill, to take the set 25-19 and put the visitors on the verge of a sweep. We have the best record weve had in years with just three losses coming in, and we atoned for one of those, Avon Park head coach Shane Wirries said. We lost to All Saints earlier and atoned for that by beating them Monday night. And it was that mindset that the Devils took into the third set, which became a trade-off of big runs. Up 4-0, Avon Park saw Baldwin spark a Lake Placid run with a kill and ace to go up 5-4. Later, with it tied at 77, it was the Lady Devils spurred by a Torres kill to score five straight and take a 12-7 lead. They were maintaining their lead at 16-13, but back came the Dragons, scoring five straight with another Baldwin ace, to go up 18-16. Lake Placid stayed up two on a Bella Caraballo kill, but Avon Park tied it up again by scoring the next two to make it 2020. The two teams battled back and forth with some fantastic rallies over the next few points, neither side willing to let the ball hit the deck. Still tied at 24-24, the Devils soon secured the next two points to get back into it with the 2624 win. But that valiant effort to get over the hump may have taken something out of the red-clad hostesses, as the fourth, and as it turned out final, set was all Lake Placid. An Aaliya Eastburn kill opened the scoring and had the Lady Devils up 1-0, but that would be the only lead they would have in the set. Still close at 5-4, the Dragons began to pull away. Lake Placid kept putting together runs, with Avon Park unable to score consecutive points until the Green Dragons were sporting a 23-12 lead. The Red Devils finally put together back-toback scores, but then so did Lake Placid to close out the 25-14 win that sealed the match. They played awesome as a team, Bauder said. Their communication, defensive coverage was some of the best Ive seen all season. Theyre getting better and better, and I think Lady Dragons clinch district Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Marina Torres smashes this kill over the net Tuesday night for the Lady Devils.

The No. 17 Gators are giving up j ust 12.2 points per game, but t heyll be tested Saturday. No. 10 LSUs offense is among t he best in the league, thanks to Q B Zach Mettenberger, WRs J arvis Landry and Odell Beckham J r. and RB Jeremy Hill. Said Mettenberger of Florida: You are only as successful as y our next game. If I go out S aturday against Florida and fini sh with a lot of incompletions and t wo interceptions, I will be considered a terrible player again in the medias eyes. BESTMATCHUP: Georgia QB Aaron Murray vs. Missouri QB James Franklin. Murrays great senior season is no surprise and No. 7 Georgia is right in the thick of the SEC race, but Mizzous emergence behind Franklin has been a little more unexpected. Franklin appears fully healthy after a variety of injuries slowed him in 2012, and the 25th-ranked Tigers are off to a 5-0 start. He has thrown for 1,407 yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions. INSIDE THE NUMBERS: Auburns offense is rolling under first-year coach Gus Malzahn. The Tigers are especially effective in the ground game, averaging 242.2 yards per game.

N ick Marshall (57.6), C ameron Artis-Payne (51.2) a nd Corey Grant (49.6) give A uburn plenty of options. ... T op-ranked Alabama and F lorida are clearly the class o f the league on defense. Both teams are giving up j ust 12.2 points per game, w hich is nearly 10 points b etter than the next best d efense. LONGSHOT: No. 9 T exas A&M at Ole Miss. T he Rebels have lost two in a row and will be the underd og on Saturday in Oxford, M iss. But Ole Miss was one o f the few teams to give J ohnny Manziel trouble last s eason, forcing the Aggies i nto six turnovers. Texas A&M needed a late rally to escape with a 30-27 victory. PLAYER TO WATCH: Texas A&M WR Mike Evans. The 6-foot-5 sophomore is having a huge season, with 28 passes for 691 yards and five touchdowns. His 24.7 yards per catch is the best mark in the SEC. Hell have a big size advantage on the Ole Miss secondary, so look for Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin to find ways to exploit that matchup. Said Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze on defending Evans: Weve thought about a lot of crazy things. Were trying to think out of the box a little bit on who we might put on him in some situations that could compete for a jump ball with him. Placid Lakes The Mens Golf Association played a Two Best Ball Front, One Best Ball Back tournament on Wednesday, Oct. 9.

Manager Joe Maddon f inds it laughable, though, t hat anyone would suggest t hat finishing with 90-plus v ictories four consecutive y ears without making it to t he World Series might be g etting old. Of course you want to w in the final prize, there no q uestion about that, said M addon, whose team was e liminated from the ALdivis ion series in four games by t he Boston Red Sox. In the latter part of the s eason, in short series, somet imes the matchups are tough a nd sometimes they just d ont roll your way, M addon added. But I really h ope and believe that the p eople in the Tampa Bay a rea would not frown upon 9 0-plus wins on an annual b asis, and a bunch of guys t hat come out and play with t he kind of zeal our guys do o n a nightly basis. Despite having one of the lowest payrolls in baseball, the budget-minded Rays won 92 games, including a Game 163 tie-breaker to earn a playoff berth for the fourth time in six seasons. The only team to win more games than Tampa Bay over the past six seasons is the New York Yankees, quite an accomplishment for a franchise that was a perennial 100-game loser for the first decade of its existence. Once again, the Rays simply couldnt muster enough offense to advance. It was the same challenge they faced in losses to Texas in two other ALDS appearances since Tampa Bays surprising run to the 2008 World Series. Built to win with pitching and defense, nine pitchers a postseason record for a nine-inning game combined to hold Boston to three six hits in a 3-1 loss that ended Tampa Bays season on Tuesday night. The game ended with ace David Price the only remaining available pitcher warming up in the bullpen for a possible 10th inning.

t he amount of game time t heyve been having has h elped them get into a good g roove. For Wirries and his Lady D evils, the feeling wasnt t oo down. It was a good match and t he girls stayed real competit ive, he said. Thing is, you c ould put both these teams b ack out here tomorrow and i t would still be a toss-up t hat could go either way. A nd well see them again in t he district tournament. And so after the Dragons l ong run of district champio nships had ended recently, i ts back to the top and perh aps a head start on a new s tring of titles. Avon Park is back in a ction Tuesday with a visit f rom Lake Wales and close o ut the regular season at S ebring Thursday, Oct. 17. Lake Placid, meanwhile, k ept busy with a trip to M ulberry Thursday, and play t hree matches next week. They face Lake Wales at h ome Monday, host Sebring T uesday and finish up at Remember, big bass, u nlike their smaller family m embers, often arent willi ng to waste the energy n eeded to chase down a m eal. But when a big fat frog, or f or that matter a big shiner o r worm drops in front of t hem, they have no choice b ut to eat it. Getting back to the many f rog and toads on the mark et, I wanted to mention the d irty dozen froggin lures y ou might want to try on y our next trip. 1. Koppers Live Target F rog. Unbelievable paint job o n this hollow-bodied frog, w ith soft plastic allowing it t o collapse when a bass s trikes. 2. Snag Proof Ishs Phat F rog. Ish Monroe designed t his one with a separate cavit y for the hook so theres no h ole going through the frog. T his frog is impossible to s ink and probably one of the e asiest to walk-the-dog. 3. Spro Bronzeye Pop. D ean Rojas created this popp ing, spitting version of a f rog back in 2004 and caught e veryones attention at the B assMaster Classic that year. 4. Tru-Tungsten Mad M axx. The company added a d rain hole to help keep the f rog afloat, as well as a keel d esign for better walking a ction. It also features a ratt le. 5. Big Bite Baits Fighting F rog. Another Dean Rojas l ure but this soft plastic bait w as designed for flipping a nd pitching as well as C arolina-rigging. 6. YUM Money Frog. It w orks as a surface-running b uzz frog, with the ability to s top and drop in pockets of vegetation. 7. Horney Toad. Probably one of the best known soft plastic frogs with its own special wide gap hook and corkscrew to attach the bait. 8. Cane Toad. Similar to the Horney Toad but with a much slimmer profile. Excellent swimming bait. 9. NeverSnag Swimming Wormfrog. This twin-ribbontail wormfrog is a born swimmer. It features a spring-style weedguard that acts as a keel and allows for a straight retrieve. 10. Ugly Frog. Ultimate Bucketmouth sought to create a more realistic-looking frog and its floating profile legs down may be the most realistic dimension. 11. Deps Basirisky Hard Belly. This Japanese bait has had a cult following since the first sighting of its wild side-to-side water dance. 12. Stanley Ribbit Floater Frog. An unusual looking frog with a soft body and kicking feet. There are actually a few more frogs and toads out there but not enough room to include them all in this column. But find one you like, cast it out and brace yourself!Wednesday, Oct. 2, TournamentTough fishing day for everyone except Gary Willer and his partner Burt Watkins who won the tournament with only two fish weighing in at 7.76 lbs. One of the fish, a hefty 4 1/2 pounder proved to be the big fish of the day. Second place went to Nick DeSanta with three fish weighing 5.24 lbs. Wednesday, Oct. 9, was the last team tournament held on Lake Jackson. Beginning Oct. 16, all future Lake Jackson tournaments will be one-man events.Friday, Oct. 4, TournamentThis tournament was scheduled for Dinner Lake but the water is so high that trucks need to back into the ramp too far to unload their boats so we opted to change the tournament back to Lake Glenada. First place went to Nick DeSanta with three fish weighing in at 6.50 lbs. Second place went to Dwight Ameling with three bass weighing in at 6.14 lbs. Anote of caution if you are launching your boat at Lake Jackson, be aware that there are numerous nails exposed alongside the railings on the boat ramp. Anumber of boats have been scratched up pretty badly on these nails. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

I need it for hot f lashes. M.G., San Diego, Calif. Answer: Estrogen is a highly misunders tood hormone that both men and women h ave. Some men dont even realize they h ave estrogen, likewise, women have testost erone, the manly hormone. Its the a mount of each that helps shape us. When the word estrogen is used, its r eally defining three different hormones, e strone, estradiol and estriol. Estrone or E1 as we call it, is the predominant estrog en post-menopausally. Its important b ecause theres a strong correlation between h ealthy levels of estrone and your bone h ealth, as well as proper insulin and BMI ( body mass index) values which translate to d iabetes risk. Estradiol or E2 is the most p otent estrogen, and its what you h ave most of before menopause h its. Estradiol in a drug version a s you have been prescribed is c onsidered bio-identical (because w e make estradiol), but if its a p rescription cream or tablet, the d osage is much higher than what y ou need physiologically. It may h elp reduce hot flashes but I w orry about long-term use ( unless you test your levels). N ow, contrast that with estradiol that is s ometimes put into compounded bio-identic al creams, they are using a fraction of the p rescription dose, and its customized based u pon your lab work. Keep in mind, the h igher your serum estradiol, the greater the r isk of certain cancers. Estradiol, in normal p hysiological amounts, assists the body in m any good ways, its not to be feared, its to b e respected and dosed only according to y our needs. With a prescription dose, I fear i t may be too much if taken daily for more t han a few weeks or months. Estriol or E3 as we call it in the literat ure is actually derived from the other two e strogens. Its the least potent of all three e strogens, and considered the safest. Estrogen levels that are erratic or low, can cause menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, vaginal dryness, urinary leakage (incontinence), chronic anxiety, and increased risk of cardiovascular disease. Low estrogen in a man can result in some bone loss, high insulin, elevated blood sugars and abnormal cholesterol ratios. They dont get the hot flashes! What about high estrogen? Termed estrogen dominance or progesterone deficiency it could cause heavy, painful periods (bad PMS), uterine fibroids, endometriosis, fibrocystic breasts, higher risk of breast cancer, and increased TH1 immune activity which increases risk of autoimmune disorders like Hashimotos or Lupus. In men, high estrogen tilts the hormone see-saw such that testosterone (T) goes down and estrogen goes up! Darn because that may cause low sex drive, erectile dysfunction, shrinking muscles, increased fat tissue (remember, estrogen causes weight gain), a disappearing six-pack in trade for a beer belly, enlarged prostate, diabetes and higher risk of cancer.

T housand of such books are p ublished each year at the c ost of millions of dollars to t he buying public. One of the best books on a purpose-driven life is a s tudy of Nehemiah. And of c ourse, the best book on g uidance from the successf ul marriage and home is a lready in your home: the B ible. But, like any other How To book, it must b e read and followed even i n those areas that cut to the h eart. For the word of God i s living and powerful, and s harper than any two-edged s word, piercing even to the d ivision of soul and spirit, a nd of joints and marrow, a nd is a discerner of the t houghts and intents of the h eart (Hebrews 4:12). Consider some How T o from the Book of b ooks: 1) Marriage is a commitment for life. Any other mind set is doomed for failure. This commitment was expressed in the joining of Eve and Adam, Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh (Genesis 2:24). As in so many things that are sacred, mankind corrupted through the centuries this Divine plan (Malachi 2:10-16). Jesus, of course, fully conscious of these departures, called for a return to the original intent of marriage in Matthew 19:3-9. Commitment is almost a lost word in our society today and that takes it toll on marriage. History clearly teaches that as goes the home/marriage so goes the nation. Friends, this being true, the USAis in deep trouble. 2) Shared identity in a marriage union. And the Lord God said, It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper (companion in the Jewish Bible) comparable to him (Genesis 2:18). The context of this statement shows the knowledge and intelligence of Adam and the kind of superior being suitable help would need to be. Thus woman was made from man to compliment each other but not in competition with each other. And Adam recognized this truth, This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called woman, because she was taken out of man (Genesis 2:23). This same truth was confirmed by the Holy Spirit through the pen of Paul in Ephesians 5:28,29. 3) Absolute faithfulness to each other. Can a man take fire to his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Can one walk on hot coals and his feet not be seared? So is he who goes in to his neighbors wife; whoever touches her shall not be innocent (Proverbs 6:27-29). As the warning was needed in the time of Isaiah, so it is desperately needed today, Woe to those who call evil good and good evil; who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight (Isaiah 5:20,21). When humans set the standard of morality, there is really no standard for situation ethics being the norm then anything goes. The evidence of this is clearly seen in same sex marriage doctrine. We should be thankful that we have the living, unchangeable Truth for guidance in all things. (2 Timothy 3:16,17) There is no doubt as to Jehovahs standard for purity in marriage: Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge (Hebrews 13:4). 4) The role of husband and wife. Society, through its many avenues of communication, has plotted wife and husband as competitors even in the marriage relationship. Of course, this under minds the oneness of the Divine plan. The How To book (i.e,.Bible) clearly recognizes the different rolls of husband and wife. The husband is placed at the head of the marriage/home (1 Corinthians 11:3, Ephesian s 5:23) but this is not a place of a dictator or a tyrant. It is a place of leadership that leads from the position of a servant. The wife is submissive to her husband (Ephesians 5:22, 24, 33) no t as a slave or inferior but as an equal in Christ (Galatians 3:28). There are many differences between male and female beyond the obvious and the Creator of both too k these into account in setting forth their rolls. As in all things, the Divine plan is perfect.

Biblical refe rence is from Jeremiah 29:1, 4-7. Continued from B7 Ayoung preacher was contacted b y the local funeral director to hold a grave side service at a small, c ountry cemetery for someone w ithout any family or friends. The p reacher started out early but q uickly got himself lost. After m aking several wrong turns, he a rrived an hour late. The hearse w as nowhere in sight, and the w orkmen were eating lunch. The preacher went to the open g rave and found the vault lid a lready in place. Taking out his B ible and funeral notes, he read the s ervice. As he was returning to his c ar, he overheard one of the workm en say: Maybe wed better tell him that was a septic tank. If the preacher had taken a little more time to look a little more closely at what was obviously before him, he would have realized that a septic tank is a far cry from a burial vault. Nevertheless, people make the same mistake with Gods word. They do not take the time to look more closely at what is obviously before them the eternal truth of the Almighty God! Afriend of mine once asked me, With so many opinions about what the Bible teaches, can anyone really know the truth? I replied, Yes! We can know the truth. However, I was quick to add this point to my answer: But, you may never find the truth if you are searching for it amidst all of those opinions. The opinions of men change, but the opinions of God never change, and His opinions (found in the Bible) are absolute truth. So, how do we know Gods truth, and how do we separate that truth from the opinions of men? Simple. We must study Gods word and His word alone. Only then can we know the real truth. In John 8:31 and 32, Jesus told a group of Jews who believed in Him, If you continue in My word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free. The Son of God taught us that we can know the truth that will set us free from sin by continuing in His word. But, we cannot continue in something unless we first have begun. So, begin reading and studying the Bible today. You wil l find that the truth was right there all along.

Kevins Komments Kevin Patterson As women, God created u s with the desire to be l oved and cared for. Are y ou one of those women w ho do not feel special, p retty, or cared about? Do y ou feel less important than o thers? Often, these t houghts can lead to becomi ng unsatisfied. If you are one of these w omen, do you find yours elf looking to people, t hings, or other substances t o comfort your heart? I nstead of looking to other s ources, let me encourage y ou to turn to Gods Word. G ods Word offers encoura gement and truths to feed y our soul and help you feel b etter about yourself and m ore loved by God, the O ne and Only. Are you uncomfortable w ith your outward appeara nce, age, or role in life? R emember that God looks p ast all of these factors. A fter all, He is the one who c reated you, and He wants a p ersonal relationship with y ou. When He looks at you, H e is interested in your h eart. I Samuel 16 (NKJV) s hows how King David was c hosen by God because of h is heart. Hopefully t hrough examining Gods p rocess in choosing him, y ou will have a greater u nderstanding of what truly m akes you important. When David was being a nointed king, God also u sed two other people, S amuel and Jesse. Samuel w as given the task of a nointing the king, and J esse was given the job of b ringing the king to Samuel. Although God had someone specific in mind already, Jesse kept bringing the wrong men to Samuel. What was causing Jesse to make the wrong choices one after another? What was he looking at compared to God? Consider the command given to Samuel in finding the king. I Samuel 16:7: Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as a man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. From this passage, it appears that Jesse was looking only at external things such as the outward appearance. Adescription of Davids outward appearance is given in I Samuel 16:11, 12. He was young and watched after sheep for a living. He was also good looking. Although the passage mentions him to be attractive and young, God was mostly looking at Davids heart and humble character. Just as God, the One and Only, chose David before He was born, He has also chosen you. You are His beloved. Your outward appearance, mistakes, and flaws are not relevant. He already knows you. Psalm 139:13-17 (NIV) says For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mothers womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If you have gotten out of fellowship with the One and Only or have started looking elsewhere to find satisfaction for your soul, you can easily get back in fellowship with Him. He is waiting with His arms open wide ready to meet you where you are. It is my prayer that you may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God(Ephesians 3:18, 19 NIV).

They are good young men, m ature, responsible, active i n community service and g ood in school and sports. My challenge is their table m anners. They were never t aught any! They use their u tensils like shop tools, lifti ng food using fork and k nife together to transfer h uge bites from plate to m outh. They use a bread k nife to cut a pancake as if it w ere a tough steak. They s louch over the table to get t heir faces as near the plate a s possible, while leaning on t he table with one or both e lbows. Their mother shows no c oncern about their uncouth m anners. Im worried that w hen they eventually go out i nto the world, theyll be p erceived as having no class w hen they are actually nice y oung men. Their ignorance o f table manners could cost t hem relationships, jobs and p romotions. What to do? San Antonio Stepdad DearStepdad: Your wife m ay have felt she was teachi ng her sons more important l essons than table manners; t hings like character and r esponsibility. However, you h ave a point. People DO m ake negative judgments a bout people who have poor t able manners and it c ould be detrimental to them i n the future. Thats why you should d iscuss this with their mothe r, if you havent already, a nd enlist her help in talking t o the boys in a nonconf rontational way and e xplaining your concern. DearAbby: I am almost 3 0, and when we have famil y get-togethers several t imes a year, it seems like t hey make a point to leave m e out of pictures. My mom a nd sister lost quite a bit of w eight recently, and my b rothers and cousin are a ttractive people. It seems l ike theyre trying to keep t he "fat one" out of the p hoto, and it hurts my feeli ngs. Recently, a cousin came i nto town and made copies o f two excellent pictures of m y mom and sister and poste d them online. Again, I was n ot included. What should I d o? I am depressive anyway, a nd these obvious oversights a re upsetting me. Left Out in Tennessee Dear Left Out: Talk with y our mother and sister to c onfirm if what you suspect i s happening is true. Its poss ible your mother and sister a re so proud of their weight l oss they want to show it off. ( There are ways to pose fami ly members in photographs s o their weight isnt appare nt.) As to the visiting c ousin, there may be such a m arked change in their a ppearance that he/she t hought it was worth posting o n the Internet.

Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Good table manners a challenge with boys Dear Abby Hopper Stone/Courtesy of SMPSP/MCT Tom Hanks, center, stars in Columbia Pictures Captain Phillips. By JOCELYN NOVECK APNational WriterIf you saw Paul Greengrasss United 93, a terrifying depiction of one of the doomed flights on 9/11, you know this director can evoke a harrowing, real-life event like few others. In fact, you may not have recovered yet from the experience. So its no surprise that Greengrass has produced another expertly crafted, documentary-style film based on a real event the 2009 hijacking of a cargo ship by Somali pirates and the five-day standoff that ensued, with the ships American captain, Richard Phillips, held captive in a stifling covered lifeboat after offering himself as a hostage. Amajor difference is that this movie has a happy ending for the captain, anyway, who was rescued in a dramatic high-seas Navy sniper operation. Three of the overmatched attackers were killed; the fourth is in a U.S. prison. More cinematically speaking, the difference is that Captain Phillips is a star vehicle. In some cases, this can detract from the sense of veracity of a truthbased film. Tom Hanks, though, delivers some of his finest work here, playing the Everyman role he does so well, in this case a fairly ordinary guy forced by circumstance to be a hero. And yet Captain Phillips is a remarkably unsentimental film, with an emotional catharsis coming only at the very end, when were all ready for some kind of release. This is where Hanks digs deepest as an actor. Oddly, the film falters only at the beginning in a brief and awkward domestic scene between Phillips, preparing for what he assumes is a routine voyage, and his wife, Andrea (Catherine Keener, in a tiny part). The two share stilted dialogue on a drive to the airport, with her asking: Its gonna be OK, right? and him commenting stiffly that the world is moving so fast. But once Phillips gets onto his ship, the movie truly starts. What Greengrass excels at is action taut and visceral and it happens as soon as the captain suddenly looks at a screen and sees two small dots moving toward the ship. Two skiffs are carrying bands of armed men; from an early scene on a Somali beach, we know theyve been whipped into action by their warlords. When they realize theyve happened upon a U.S. ship, they cant believe their luck. What WE cant believe is how a huge cargo ship is so vulnerable to small bands of armed men. But the Maersk Alabama has no gun power aboard, only huge hoses to repel pirates and their machine guns. They dont work. Soon, four pirates have hoisted a ladder onto the ship. Im the captain now, says their leader, Muse. And the ordeal begins. Greengrass and cinematographer Barry Ackroyd are at their most effective in scenes like the frightening search in tense, dark spaces, in extreme closeup by increasingly angry pirates hunting down the crew. On the other hand, this is where the camerawork gets ever more unstable and jittery. Good for dramatic effect but bad if youre susceptible to queasiness or nausea at such times. Be forewarned. Things get even more intense in the lifeboat, where the pirates are locked in with Phillips for several agonizing days. With the U.S. Navy bearing down, its pretty clear where its all headed. The only question: Who will die? The movie humanizes the pirates but is not inclined to forgive them. All four Somali actors are excellent, but especially Barkhad Abdi, memorable as Muse. As for Hanks, his final moments are his best, as Phillips registers in an intensely personal way the cumulative effects of what hes endured. Its safe to say those moments will be whats remembered most from this movie, and for a long time. Movie Review Captain Phillips Rating: PG-13 (sustained intense sequences of menace, some violence with bloody images, and substance use) Running time: 134 minutes Review: (of 4) Hanks stellar in harrowing saga of Captain Phillips

It's one of the best times of year for crafting, cooking and scaring up some truly creative treats and decorations. Whether you love creating a little glitz and glamour or something frightening and fun, the experts at the Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores have come with ideas and inspirations for making this Halloween your best one yet. Frightful Fun: Lead trick-or-treaters to their doom or, at least, your front door by lining the sidewalks with glowing rocks. Paint smooth river rocks with glow-in-thedark spray paint. Once dry, use black paint and a brush to write scary words or draw silly designs on the rocks. Decorate YourHeart Out: Use black glass paint to turn a thrift store cake stand into a pedestal for your scariest Halloween decorations. Pile plastic hearts or skulls in the middle and cover with a clear glass cloche. Decorated cupcakes or a cakepop display would also work well under glass. Eat, Drink and be Scary: Scary food ideas abound, but few drinks scream Halloween more than an embellished decanter of swampy green brew or blood red punch. Before pouring the brew into fun glassware, drop plastic spider rings inside ice cube trays, fill with bottled water and freeze. Your guests will love a few frozen creepy crawlies in their drink. Making your own embellished decanter and glassware is a simple project for crafters at every level. The best part is you can get the whole family involved.
