Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The second annual Friends of the Library Week in Avon Park will be Oct. 20-26. Friends President Lucy Derkman encourages everyone to visit the Avon Park Public Library and the Friends Used Book Store during that time to show their support for their library and their city. The Avon Park Library is considered by many to be among the citys most valued community institutions. It provides books and movies for checkout and provides computer terminals for email, research and education. As part of the Friends of the Library Week celebration, a free book bag will be given to the first 100 people who buy a used book or video. Money made by the Used Book Store is used by the Friends to provide services and supplies for the library. During the summer, the Friends provide financial support for fun educational programs for Avon Parks children. Among the many exciting events this summer were Pirate Tales, featuring professional storyteller Katie Adams; and Over the Rainbow, a Wizard of Oz craft day. The Friends also provided the small prizes given to children who accomplished their weekly reading goals, encouraging them to keep reading throughout the summer. The Friends of the Library contribute to everything we do, and we could not provide such a high level of customer service to our community without their help, Avon Park librarian Mary Beth Isaacson said. All of our childrens programs are put on with their assistance. The Friends have also agreed to donate 10 new computers to the library to replace outdated machines. For many of the people in our community, the library is the only place where they can apply for jobs or do school assignments. So much these days depends on technology, and the library plays an important role in making sure that everyone has access to the Internet. I am so happy to have such wonderful Friends of the Library to help us with our mission of fulfilling the communitys information needs. Amuch-anticipated program sponsored by the Friends will be ALand Remembered: Patrick Smiths Florida, presented by Rick Smith, son of the esteemed author Patrick D. Smith. This is an unforgettable multimedia tribute to one of Floridas greatest authors and will bring Smiths best-selling novel ALand Remembered to life with videos, photos, music and visual effects. The event will be held at the Avon Park Community Center on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 11 a.m. The Community Center is located on Main Street just south of the library and the across Museum Avenue from the Depot Museum. New copies of Patrick Smiths books, including ALand Remembered, will be for sale.

Make your voice heard at By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Things are going great guns for the annual 4-H Fundraiser set for this Thursday at the Island View Restaurant & Pub in the Sun N Lake. Representatives of the Highlands County 4-H Foundation, which stages the annual gathering, said they hope to put as much as $30,000 in the coffers to help out local 4-H clubs and projects. Tickets are $75 apiece, with patrons to receive both a meal and access to the open bar. It is the only fundraiser the 4-H puts on each year. It is a great dinner and a great event, but those who want to attend need to call me and let me know by the close of business Monday, said 4-H Foundation Treasurer Lisa Sherman. We need to know how many dinners to reserve. In addition to a banquet, there will be both silent and a live auctions with items donated from throughout the community. Up on the block will be events and excursions such as a a saltwater fishing trip, hot air balloon rides or tickets to the NASCAR race in Homestead. Consumer products also will go up for bid including a 15 cubicfoot refrigerator, a solid oak fireplace mantle and a truckload of sod. Okeechobee Countys Brian Trimble will be handling the gavel for the live auction. He does a lot of livestock auctions there and h as been the auctioneer for us for many years, Sherman said. Sherman emphasized that all of the proceeds from the dinner and auction would be spent locally. All the money stays right here in Highlands County, she said. Targets for the fund range from annual scholarships to equipment, such as a request for a trailer submitted by the new 4-H shooting sports club to be used when they attend their various meets. The banquet will commence with a social hour at 6 p.m. with dinner to be served at 7 p.m. The live auction will begin around 8:30. We try to get everybody to sit down around 7 for dinner, but this is really a social group, Sherman said. Plus, there are a lot of people who want to con tinually check their bids on the silent auction so they can get what they want. Those wanting additional information, to make mon etary donations or who would like to make donations to the event, may co ntact Sherman at 465-2835. 4-H fundraiser set for Thursday Courtesy photo Library Assistant Linda Carter reads to children at the Avon Park Public Library.

Both sides have dug in and are spending a lot of time talking about how the whole thing is the other sides fault. We appear to be no closer to a solution then we were when the whole thing started. If you are a political junkie, some of this has entertainment value. If youre a columnist, it provides fodder. Other than that, its a mess. And we need to remember that there are real people who are being hurt by the stubbornness of our political leaders. My best friends husband has been furloughed. They are having to figure out how to keep paying their bills while Democrats and Republicans wrangle over funding the government. Meanwhile many of the congresscritters are still getting their pay and perks. How is that even fair? Interesting things have occurred during the shutdown. Part of the government that wasnt shut down was Obamacare and insurance exchanges were opened up with great fanfare. Immediately, there were glitches and problems and promises to fix it all. Republicans took great delight in pointing out the flaws of the sign-up process. I already have health insurance, so Im not one of those overloading the website. But even if I didnt have insurance, Im not sure Id be rushing over to sign up. Its the same reason I normally dont rush out and get the latest Windows operating system better to wait and see whats broken about it before I dive in. There is increasingly alarmist talk about the debt ceiling, which according to a number of people needs to be raised by Oct. 17. What happens if we fail to do this? It depends on who you talk to. The predictions run from its not going to be a problem to the country will be destroyed. Some articles I skimmed on the debt ceiling even admit that no one is quite sure what will happen if we dont raise the debt ceiling its never happened before. The government has picked odd things to close and keep open. For example, while federal workers like my friends husband have to sit at home, the gyms that are provided for exclusive use to the House and Senate members are still open and running. I guess having physically fit congressmen and women is way more important than, say, Head Start or making sure the CDC is adequately staffed. Neither the Republicans nor the Democrats are willing to take their share of t he blame in this. And everyon e involved is taking a hit in the polls because of it. While more people blame the Republicans, Democrats arent getting a pass. And President Obama? According to an article found on www.npr.org, his approval rating is down to 37 percent. Ive said this once, and Ill say it again: a pox on both your political parties. In my humble opinion, bo th sides are guilty of playing politics instead of doing the jobs they were elected to do. And I for one am sick of it. If it were up to me, I would cut off our elected officialspay so fast their head would spin. Id close their fancy gyms. And I would lock the leaders of both parties in a room and feed them bread and water until they hammer out an agreement of some kind. Do your jobs, people. P ut on your big-boy (or biggirl) pants and start like behaving like adults instead of petulant children. Or get out of the way and make room for people who will. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Texting law not strong enough E ditor: One wonders about the s anity of Floridas senators p assing a secondary bill for t exting while driving. I am in favor of stringent p unishment for anyone text ing while driving. I have h ad three close calls with p eople driving while talking o n a cell phone. Why cannot texting while d riving carry a much stiffer s entence than the present l aw calls for? Charles A. Marr Sebring This is affordable? E ditor: Response to Millie G rimes: Millie, where are t he facts that all Republicans i n the House are milliona ires? Attempts at defunding O bamacare were made to m ake a point to America ( that) Obamacare is not g oing to work, plus the P resident cannot change the v ery law that Congress p assed. The Republicans w anted what was fair for the P residents friend to be fair f or Middle America, what is w rong with that? The Republicans/America k nows from statistics that t his is a train wreck waiting t o happen. Some facts you p robably have not taken time t o look up: The IPAB, ( Independent Payment A dvisory board) has one job: Stop treatments its memb ers do not favor by setting rates to levels where no doctor or hospital will perform them. This is the Death panel you heard of. It exists. IPAB members are not doctors (but) they will make decision on your health care. Areport in Forbes shows that a healthy 30-year-old man or women will see increases of 260 percent average in premiums. This is affordable? The Manhattan Institute (said) Obamacare will increase average individual market insurance premiums by 99 percent for men and 62 percent for women. This is affordable? Middle America will suffer two ways: higher premiums (latest figures, family of four, rates up to $7,450 annually for the Bronze plan), two, higher taxes to pay other peoples subsidies. Its estimated most people will not receive enough subsidies to counteract increase in premiums. Two-thirds of the uninsured are under 40 years of age, most will not sign up because of exorbitant cost of premiums, cheaper to pay the fine. This is affordable? Americans will pay an average premium of $328 monthly for mid-tier health insurance; this figure is based on data for approved insurance plans in 48 states. This is affordable? The president promised he would lower premiums by up to $2,500 for the typical family per year, by end of his first term. We are in (his) second term, Heres the facts: (a) family of four will see an increase up to $7,450, that is a $10,000 increase from what the President promised them. This is affordable? Fact: Regarding your 30 million uninsured, the GAO stated that Obamacare will still have 30 million uninsured., Wasnt this the whole reason for Obamacare, to insure these 30 million? This is why they voted to defund it, so America could see the train wreck. John Nelson Chairman The Highlands Tea PartyWhy has it come to this?Editor: Why has our country come to this? The answer to this very valid question lies exposed and naked before us. Yet we, the people do not pause in humility, or the search for answers. We bypass, step over or find ways to avoid addressing the facts. By the love of money and power, we become drunk with self importance. Our success by hook and by crook is assured; we dont need God to speak to our conscience so why bother to listen? Our lack of morals, addiction of drugs and chemicals provides a means of escape from reality and responsibilities. Disobedience to Gods ordinances are atoned for by appearance in the right places, socializing with the right crowd, saying the accepted things people want to hear. We get elected to the highest offices in the land and once a toehold on the ladder, we can say and do whatever we please, or nothing at all. Our paychecks will be forthcoming. The facts of the matter is our two-party system no longer works. When the Constitution was crafted by God-fearing men, our forefathers shaped and molded the lows to guide civilization of honest, humble hard working people of that time. By prayer and supplication our forefathers made known their needs to the Lord Jesus Christ and the combined work and wisdom became the law of the land. Two hundred thirty seven years later we find the law of the land has become a war zone of bitter words, disagreements and rebellion. Astand your ground law has hurled us into regression of disrespect for our President, for the members of the Senate and the few members of the House that are trying to bring about a workable solution to ending this shutdown of the government. John Boehner, Speaker of the House claims he cannot negotiate because he fears the extremists of his party. It doesnt take a rocket scientist to understand the Speakers statement underscores the need for a makeover of our government. Una McLaughlin Sebring The story is loaded with Hiaassent ype characters zealots and s calawags all saying the most hypocriti cal things with straight faces. For e xample, the politicians who keep the C ongressional gym open while laying o ff 800,000 other non-essential worke rs. Despite the potential for fun, were a fraid this story has the potential for t ragedy. Beyond the disruptions in many peop les lives the families who have to w ait to bury their loved ones in nationa l cemeteries, the parents with no place t o send their children to pre-school t here is the hardship of surviving financ ially when paychecks stop. As it happens, we are fortunate in Highlands County so far. According to Gloria Rybinski, the countys public information officer, as of Friday only the federal E-Verify system was down, and according to Richard Birt, director of finance for the school board, the district has not yet been touched. There is something very dangerous, however, in the way our federal representatives and senators are behaving, especially those who seem willing to destroy our government and economy in their effort to save us from ourselves. At a difficult time when we need statesmen and leaders, instead we have one too many self-satisfied, overly confident, want-to-be despots who lack wisdom and common sense and who obviously dont care about collateral damage. The fact is, a majority of Americans elected and re-elected Barack Obama, which by default means a majority of Americans voted in favor of fixing the cost of health care in this country. Despite that, the federal government is being held hostage by a handful of elected vigilantes who feel they know better what is best for everyone else people who believe comprise means agreeing with them. This editorial is not for or against Obamacare. It is about good government and finding a way of doing our nations business without hurting innocent people and turning us into the worst kind of example. It is about standing up forcefully for the constitution and parliamentary law and in defense of the majoritys expressed will, whether we agree with it or not. It would be funny, if it werent such a tragedy A t first glance, the current federal government shutdown and stalemate in Washington could have been written by Carl Hiaassen. It certainly h as his satiric air and dark comedy.

Wells Fargo donates to Heartland Food Bank Sebring City Council has plenty to discuss Tuesday Special to the News-SunTAMPA The Florida Department of Elder Affairs SHINE (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) Program is available to provide free, unbiased help for Florida Medicare beneficiaries as they carefully evaluate their health care options during the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period. During the Annual Enrollment Period, which runs Oct. 15 through Dec. 7, Medicare beneficiaries have the opportunity to make changes to their Medicare Prescription Drug or Medicare Advantage plans. SHINE encourages beneficiaries to review their benefits each year for a variety of reasons. Individuals often experience subtle changes in their health over the course of the year, and these changes may alter the kind of care they need. This could directly affect their need for more or less health insurance, the types of prescription drugs they require or their access to particular doctors or pharmacies. Health changes can also increase costs, which can be particularly critical for Medicare beneficiaries on fixed incomes. SHINE volunteer counselors through West Central Florida Area Agency on Aging Inc. provide free, unbiased one-on-one insurance counseling and information on Medicare options and prescription drug assistance for elders, their families and caregivers. To receive help from SHINE to review and enroll in a plan, individuals may visit designated SHINE counseling sites, attend enrollment events, or conta ct trained SHINE volunteer counselors at 1-800-9635337.

Rick Scott, w hose catchphrase Its w orking is the theme for h is re-election, has been w illing to try just about anyt hing to get Floridians to l ike him. Its not working. Since the day he was e lected, polls have shown t hat more Floridians dislike h im than like him. Not that h e hasnt made efforts to w in them over. He tried s ocial media outreach, then g ave it up. He tried dressing c asual, then gave it up. He t ried doing Lets Get to W ork Days but seems to h ave abandoned those, too. While Scott has said polic y and not popularity is w hats important, its clear h is staff and his party are t rying hard to make him m ore likable. That could be e specially important, with t he prospect of opposing one o f the states most likable politicians, former Gov. Charlie Crist, as he seeks reelection. They keep trying to grab at straws in trying to get his name out there, and they just need to let him be who he is, said Jamie Miller, a Republican political consultant. They dont need to change who he is, they just need to portray him as who he is. Scott once said in an interview that polls dont matter. People think that being governor is a popularity contest. No. Your job is to be the governor, Scott said during an interview with The Associated Press his first year in office. But Scotts actions indicate hed like to be more popular. His political committee and the Republican Party of Florida together have paid Virginia-based pollster Tony Fabrizio more than $1 million since Scott took office. Some say the image that Scotts handlers are trying to create just doesnt fit who he is. (Voters) think that most of his actions are calculated calculated on the polls, calculated by consultants, said former Republican Sen. Paul Dockery. Its not that Scott isnt a nice guy he is friendly and polite and takes time to talk to people when he travels the state but he often doesnt look comfortable in crowds. On a one-on-one basis, Gov. Scott is a very likable person. Hes somewhat socially awkward, but he is likable. He seems very shy and he searches for similarities, things that you have in common, Dockery said. Gov.

Jessie De J ongh recalled when she r ealized that her mother was f acing a serious problem. It was back in 2003. The f amily had all come to P uerto Rico to visit and it w as around Christmas time. W e spent every day of the w eek walking up and down t his area (and) we walked p ast this bridge several times o n a daily basis. Then I n oticed one day my mom s aid Oh, I dont remember t hat bridge, its so beautiful, a nd she kept saying it. I t hought, How could she not r emember it? We pass it e very day. Thats when I knew s omething was wrong, so I c alled my brother and we got h er to a doctor, Jessie De J ongh said. After her initial diagnosis, J essie moved from Puerto R ico to Sebring to take in a nd care for her mother. Sandy, an SFSC student pursing a nursing degree, and Gaby both pitch in with their grandmothers care. She is not in a facility. She lives at home with us, said Gaby. We keep a very close eye on her. We watch her. Shes never wandered away. She can eat by herself. We have to do the cutting of food and things like that for her, of course, but she can do a lot herself. All of her medicines are natural except maybe one. Perez, who spent her life working as an registered nurse, is now being repaid her many years of service by the ones who love her most. We take care of her because she used to take care of others, Jessie said. The family enjoyed Saturdays event in downtown Sebring. This was a great walk. We heard about it from the paper so we decided to come. Its our first year, but we will definitely be back. We will keep walking for her, said Jessie. The 2013 Sebring Walk to End Alzheimers featured guest speakers such as State Representative Dr. Cary Pigman, County Commissioner Greg Harris and several Alzheimers Association board members, leaders and volunteers. Six local assisted living facilities, including Change of Pace, Lake Placid Health Care Center, Oaks of Avon Assisted Living Facility and others participated in the walk Saturday. There are currently 5,000 people in Highlands County who suffer from Alzheimers and 7,500 caregivers helping these patients. Highlands County is one of 17 counties included in the Florida Gulf Coast Alzheimers Association.

We will have three different scenarios, one for each pavilion, she said. One will be set up as a living room, another as a kitchen and a third as a bedroom Also offered at the Haunted Hammock will be The Scary Tram Tour. Riders will be taken through the Hammock after dark, which is scary in and of itself Nelson said. It doesnt get much spookier than that. Plus, we will have some surprises set up along the way, she said. The tram ride will be a different route than is generally run, with some detours and jogs. Nelson revealed it also will run at a much slower pace. Were going to go through some places where the forest is a bit more dense, places where cars cannot go, she said. I am telling you, it is pitch dark out there. For the younger set and those who want a bit more fun Halloween evening a No Scare Kid Zone will be offered. That will be set up in front of the CCC Museum and will involve carnival games with a liberal sprinkling of members from Tobys Clown Alley. Well have some candy rewards for the games, said Nelson. It will be kind of like game trick-ortreating. Alive DJ will provide music for the event, which also will serve as a sort of buffer between the scary and non-scary events of the evening. While park rangers will be directing traffic and administrating the event, i t actually is being staged by the Friends of Highlands Hammock State Park organization. The citizens support group traditionally helps the park with a wide array of service and fundraising functions. The ghouls, goblins and other participants for this first ever event all will be volunteers. We have recruited som e youngsters from the college and high schools and people from other areas to help us put this on, Nelson said. Without the volunteers and our citizens support group, this event would not be possible. In fact, without them a lot of things we do would not be possible. The event will be from 610 p.m. both evenings. Co st will be $5 for those ages 13 and up, youngsters 6-12 will be $2 with those 5 and under getting in free. All proceeds will go back to the Friends of Highlands Hammock. Call Nelson at the park at 386-6094. Continued from A1 N AACPPresident Aljoe Hinson said he w ould rather see $3,000 of Southside C RAmoney go to a Southside event r ather than see it go somewhere else. Snell said he wanted to hold Davis r equest until after a fundraiser on Nov. 1 which is expected to raise $5,000$ 6,000 to help pay for MLK Day e vents. If you need to do something to m ake money, create your own event, H inson said. Davis said Snell, Sheppard and advis ory board member Eloise Watson were i gnoring a majority in the audience w ho didnt want a money-making e vent, but wanted a family reunion. Hinson said changes in the last two y ears have alienated the events core p articipants from the last 19 years, e specially elderly Southside residents w ho cant drive but would wait outside t heir homes to see the parade. Beatrice Peterson, who organized the e vent for many years, said CRAfunds s hould help people in the community b efore anything else. Your business is to see who needs h ouses fixed, Peterson said. Whatever they need. That is what the CRAmoneys for, not up here wasting my time talking about a Martin Luther King parade. I love you to death, baby, Peterson told Snell, but your job is as chairman is to see what needs to be done on the Southside. Several times during Fridays heated discussion, Snell asked audience members not to interrupt speakers or yell comments from the floor. There were several exchanges between him and local resident Johnny Roberts and exchanges also included statements that Sheppard, although a city resident, shouldnt be on the board because he was born in Wauchula. Im so sorry we live in a community that we have so many differences where we cant work together, Sheppard said. Watson said she saw a lack of communication on both sides. Roberts also said he was embarrassed people were made to throw away food before entering the 2013 event. Snell said a no outside food rule was unanimously approved by the board out of respect for vendors. Roberts asked if that decision was in the best interest of single mothers. Im only one vote on the board, Snell said. Resident Willie Gammage said parents could end up spending $100 on food vendors at an event, but churches and volunteers provided free food at past events. Roberts accused Snell of getting paid for the 2013 event, but Administrative Services Director Maria Sutherland said he wasnt and raised $1,500 on his own. No one on the (advisory) board got paid with any CRAdollars, Sutherland said. Gerald did not get a dime. Sutherland also said Whiteside provided event T-shirts from her business at cost. She said the 2013 event would have been only $5,000 had an organizer not brought in entertainment, a football team and referees without getting advisory board approval. She said the board agreed to pay them after the fact. This year, the CRAhired an event planner for $2,400, Sutherland said, because she is not an event planner and cant take time from other city staff duties.

Board: MLK Day events to stay downtown By PHILATTINGER firstname.lastname@example.orgSEBRING Ghouls, g hosts and goblins can find s ome new fun at this years H ighlands County Family Y MCAHalloween S pooktacular. The annual Halloween fest ival next Friday and S aturday, Oct. 18-19, will i nclude new free activities, s uch as a kiddie train for the l ittle ones, a big slide for all k ids and a dress-up photo a rea, said Program Director D ave Scheck. The photo area will have h ats and other garments so v isitors can throw on that one m issing costume piece for a quick photograph, he said. YMCAand community volunteers have signed on to provide the activities and scares, including everything from bounce houses to face painting. And as last year, free activities will include a haunted house, a cake walk, fun stations with plenty of candy and a dunk tank, Scheck said. The event is designed to provide treats, frights and family friendly, safe entertainment, he said. Crowds keep growing each year, and hes hoping for a bigger crowd this year. We have over 1,000 people, almost 1,100 last year, Scheck said. The event is one of the biggest for the YMCAand raises funds to help the Strong Kids Campaign, which provides scholarships for children whose parents would not be able to send them to YMCAprograms, such as the annual summer camp. Of the $150,000 raised annually for the Strong Kids Campaign, the Spooktacular provides $5,000, Scheck said. Although he couldnt recall exactly how many children the campaign has helped since the 2012 Spooktacular, he said at least half of the 60 students at summer camp this year went on scholarship and a third of the 300 enrolled in soccer were helped by it. Admission to the Spooktacular is $3 per person, up from $2 last year. All children age 2 and younger get in free. Spooktacular staff will also sell snacks and refreshments such as hot dogs and popcorn throughout the event. Get there early, as spooking is scheduled from 6-9 p.m. Oct. 18 and 19. Call 8382-9622.

Success brings about rewards By MIKE COBB Ledger correspondentLAKELAND Sebring u sed a flurry of big plays in t he first half to take a 35-0 h alftime lead and went on to b eat Tenoroc, 42-7, in the T itanshomecoming game at M ount Olympus Stadium F riday night. After a slow start that saw S ebring lose two early fumb les, Duran Randolph ignited t he Blue Streaks with a 70y ard punt return with 3:11 l eft in the first quarter. By the end of the quarter, t he Blue Streakslead was 2 1-0 as Breon Jones scored on an 11-yard run and Giovanni Jenkins added a 44-yard touchdown run. Special t eams got us going for the s econd week in a row, said S ebring coach LaVaar Scott. Our offense never got a d rive going. We had some big p lays, but thats the way its b een for us this year. Blue Streak quarterbacks J air Watson and Connor C ook, who shared playing t ime throughout the game, e ach had touchdown passes i n the second quarter. Watson connected for a 72y arder to John Berry, and C ook hit Landante Harris for a 46-yard touchdown pass g iving Sebring its 35-0 halft ime lead. Randolph added a 3-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. Alot of kids played, and there were a lot of (starters) that we took out early in the game, Scott said. Tenoroc (0-6) controlled play early in the game and had a chance to take an early lead after recovering a fumble at the Sebring 32. That would have been huge, Tenoroc coach Michael Burns said. We havent led at any time this year. The Titans drive stalled, however, and their 42-yard field goal try drifted wide left. We had some success early, and Im proud of that, Burns said. The first seven or eight minutes, we controlled the tempo. Tenoroc did score late in the third quarter with a 73yard drive, with 50 coming on a pass from Dylan WrightSirmon to Lucious Everett. That set up WrightSirmons 1-yard touchdown pass to Nico Gallon. Sebrings next game is Friday at home against Winter Haven.

Sebring42Tenoroc7 Dan Hoehne/News-S un Red Devil Jonelson Dorce battles for this reception with Hardees Ricky Delarosa Friday night, but Delarosa would come away with the interception in the Wildcats win. By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comAVON PARK You c ould look at the scoreboard a nd say Im crazy, but Im n ot discouraged, Avon Park h ead coach Wade Jackson s aid after his Red Devils 540 loss to visiting Hardee F riday night. We just got t aken behind the woodshed a nd got a beating from a v ery good football team. There have been a few woodshed type games for t he Devils this season, as J ackson readily acknowle dged that the teamsschedu le has been brutal. That is backed up by the f act that the combined r ecords of six of this seasons opponents thus far is 30-6 which is a tough road to take with a rebuilding program. Although things did start off pretty well as Avon Park received the opening kick and put together a nice drive. On third down from their own 20, quarterback Alfred Brown connected on a slant over the middle to Josh Jones for a 30-yard gain that brought it to midfield. Brown then raced around the right side on a keeper for a 12-yard gain, with an extra 15 added on for an unsportsmanlike conduct call on Hardee. Lauer Lewis picked up two yards and Brown 10 and two to bring it inside the Wildcat 10. But the next play saw a three-yard loss and Avon Park was left to attempt a 30-yard field goal, which was blocked. It went downhill from there. Behind the behemoth running back tandem of Keyonte Holley and Timmy Steedley, Hardee drove 80 yards on eight plays, with Steedley taking it in from Wildcats waylay Red Devils Hardee54Avon Park0 See AP, B4 By FRED GOODALL Associated PressTAMPA The Tampa B ay Buccaneers say a third p layer has been diagnosed w ith MRSA, a staph infect ion that is resistant to m any common antibiotics. General manager Mark D ominik made the a nnouncement Friday, a d ay after confirming guard C arl Nicks is being treated f or a recurrence of MRSA. Dominik and coach G reg Schiano declined to i dentify the third player i nvolved in the case diagn osed late Thursday, sayi ng the player requested h is name not be released. Ive spoken to the playe r, Ive spoken to his a gent, and were not at libe rty to confirm or deny a ny player right now, D ominik said. NFL.com reported the p layer was rookie cornerb ack Johnthan Banks. The second-round draft pick out of Mississippi State was the only new addition Friday to the injury report, which said Banks did not practice due to illness. Banks is listed as questionable for Sundays game against Philadelphia. Nicks, who along with kicker Lawrence Tynes was diagnosed as having MRSAin August, also sat out practice. He is questionable to play against Philadelphia. The team flew in an infectious disease expert to answer questions players had before practice. Schiano said the session lasted more than an hour, pushing back the teams practice schedule. As in anything, I think so much of the fear is the unknown, Schiano said. So as we became better educated, I think kind of understands the game plan and how to make sure this doesnt become a bigger problem. Dr. Deverick J. Anderson, an associate professor of medicine at the Duke University Medical Center and codirector of the Duke Infection Control Outwork Network said even though there are no other confirmed cases of MRSAon other NFLteams that he doesnt feel players and staff in Tampa Bay are at any higher risk of coming in contact with MRSA. Meanwhile, NFLPlayers Association executive director DeMaurice Smith issued a statement on the situation. We have been involved in an ongoing review of the MRSAincidents in Tampa Bay initiated by the concerns we had about the manner in which team officials responded to these cases, Smith said in a Buccaneers confirm 3rd player has MRSA infection See BUCS, B4 By EDDIE PELLS Associated PressDENVER Any given Sunday? Well, probably not this Sunday not in Denver, at least. Next up for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are the Jacksonville Jaguars, whose 51 points this season are as many as Mannings offense put up last week. That doesnt mean, of course, that Sundays game wont draw an audience, especially in Denver, North Florida and certain establishments in Southern Nevada. This is The Point Spread Game, where its not so much about who gets the W, as whether the Broncos (5-0) can cover the 27-point spread, largest ever put on the board in Las Vegas for an NFLcontest. It aint got (expletive) to do with me at all, so I dont want to hear about it, Jaguars receiver Cecil Shorts III said, clearly tired of a question thats been bubbling in Jacksonville for the better part of two weeks. No more questions about the point spread, please. Thats dumb. Manning, whose 20 touchdown passes are the most through the first five games in NFLhistory, certainly didnt want to discuss the line either, shaking his head before the question was even completed, then talking up the winless Jags. Completely irrelevan t to me, he said. Were playing a good NFLfootball team. I dont look at anything besides what I see on the tape. On defense, I see a team thats stingy in the red zone. Ive seen some offenses that have made some really good plays against them, that have been hard to defend, and certainly its a team with a lot of pride. Here are five things to know as the Broncos try to extend their regularseason winning streak to 17:Laser focus Part of whats been impressive about the Broncos since they last lost a regular-season game on Oct. 7, 2012, is that they havent had an off day or a day where they looked like they were glancing past that weeks opponent. In setting up the weeks talking points, coach John Fox said he remembered being a two-touchdown underdog at home when he was defensive coordinator for the New York See SPREAD, B3 Broncos big favorites in Point Spread Game LaVaar Scott Sebring head coachSpecial teams got us going for the second week in a row.

The 18-year-old American h ad five birdies in her b ogey-free round for a 17u nder total of 196. Lee held the overnight l ead but mixed three birdies w ith two bogeys for a 70. Suzann Pettersen was a nother three strokes back a fter a 67, tied for third with S hanshan Feng of China. Thompson is aiming for h er second career tour title a nd first since the Navistar L PGAClassic in 2011. I felt really well going i nto today, I had a good p ractice session before my r ound, so I was pretty confid ent, Thompson said. Every player wants to go i nto the final round with a l ead. Pettersen has switched g olf balls for this week and s aid shes hitting it longer as a result, but she struggled w ith her putting all day. Im playing pretty steady, h itting almost 18 greens, and n ot making a putt. Its very h ard to stay patient, P ettersen said. Four under i s pretty much the worst s core I could shoot. Just glad there is one more round tomorrow. Lexi is playing great, so theres definitely a low one needed tomorrow. Swedens Anna Nordqvist had the best round of the day with a 65 to climb from joint 29th to a tie for fifth alongside Karine Icher of France at 204.

G iants. The year was 1998. The opponent was the D enver Broncos, who came i n with a 13-0 record. They left with a loss, F ox said of the 20-16 Giants w in over a team that went on t o capture the Super Bowl. And this team has beaten us f our out of the last five t imes weve played. Nobody h ere is taking anybody lightl y. Cover men The Broncos got embarr assed on defense last week i n that 51-48 win over D allas, allowing Tony Romo t o pass for 506 yards and f ive touchdowns. The Jaguars have shown n othing near that sort of p otential on offense, but cert ainly they can gather ideas w atching the tape from a g ame in which Champ B ailey sat and his replacem ent, Chris Harris, missed t he second half. Harris has a concussion, a nd was listed as probable f or Sunday. Bailey, meanwhile, said hes ready to make his 2013 debut against the Jaguars. This also marks the last week of linebacker Von Millers suspension good news for a defense that needs to start getting players back instead of losing more. Starters Wesley Woodyard and Robert Ayers also were hurt against Dallas and listed as doubtful for Sunday. Cover himThe Jaguars had an offensive explosion of sorts last week 20 points thanks in part to receiver Justin Blackmons return from a four-game suspension. Blackmon had five catches for 136 yards and a touchdown. The Jaguars have another offensive threat in running back Maurice Jones-Drew, though Jacksonvilles running game along with everything else has been stifled, averaging 58 yards a game, ranked 30th. Overall, the offense is last in points and total yards. In order to be successful in anything you have to go through some trying times and thats what were going through right now, JonesDrew said.Jacks old teamThis will be the first coaching opportunity for Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio against the team that fired him in 2011 after nearly nine seasons. The Jaguars have gone 422 since he left. The one thing we always respected about coach Del Rio is that hes always going to put you in a situation to be successful, said JonesDrew, who was drafted during Del Rios tenure. Just a reminderJacksonville has pulled off big upsets in Denver before. In their second year of existence, the Jaguars were double-digit underdogs to John Elways Broncos in the 1997 divisional playoffs. Led by Mark Brunell, who now does radio work for the team, the Jaguars overcame an early 12-0 deficit for a 30-27 win that still goes down as one of the most painful losses in Broncos history. Continued from B1 Spread could be misleading By HOWARD FENDRICH Associated PressMuch is being made of how lopsided everyone expects Sundays game to be between Peyton Mannings Denver Broncos and the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars. One team, after all, is 5-0 and scored 51 points last weekend. The other is 0-5 and scored a grand total of 51 points all season. One team has Manning and his TD-interception ratio of 20-1. The other has backup quarterback Chad Henne and his 2-2 ratio. So how big a deal would it be if the Jaguars actually beat the Broncos? The stakes are not high its simply Week 6 in a 16-game regular season but it sure would be unexpected. That sort of thing does happen occasionally. Its called an upset, and the chance of one is a big reason we watch even the supposedly unfair matchups (at least until the score is 42-6 at halftime ...). Heres a Pick 6 of memorable, major upsets around the world of sports: N.Y. Jets beat Baltimore Colts, 1969 SuperBowl: Lets start with an example from professional football, and a step on the way to the NFLs stratospheric popularity. Joe Namath, the quarterback of the Jets, famously issues a guarantee that his AFLupstarts will beat the NFLs Colts despite being more than two-touchdown underdogs and hes right. New Yorks 16-7 victory shows the AFLis ready for a merger and help make Broadway Joe an icon. U.S. beats the U.S.S.R. in ice hockey, 1980 Olympics: The Miracle on Ice. Jim Craig, Mike Eruzione and the rest of coach Herb Brookssquad of amateurs stuns the feared Soviets 4-3 en route to although not for the gold medal. The games significance stretches beyond a rink in Lake Placid because of the Cold War, the hostages in Iran, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the energy crisis, and a general malaise hanging over the United States. Chaminade beats Ralph Sampson and Virginia, 1982: Chaminade boasts all of 800 students, plays at the NAIA not NCAA level at the time, and does not even have its own gymnasium (it rents one from a high school). And yet the Silverswords, coming off a loss to Wayland Baptist, manage to shock No. 1ranked Virginia and the 7foot-4 Sampson, a threetime national college basketball player of the year, 77-72. James BusterDouglas beats Mike Tyson, 1990: Douglas knocks out Tyson in the 10th round of their scheduled 12-round fight in Tokyo. Tyson, the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history, comes into the bout 37-0 with 33 knockouts, while the unknown Douglas is 29-41 with 19 KOs. Rulon Gardnerbeats AlexanderKarelin, 2000 Olympics: Gardner, an American heavyweight in Greco-Roman wrestling, wins a gold medal at the Sydney Games by stoppin g Russian Alexander Karelins 13-year unbeaten streak. Karelin enters with thre e Olympic titles already and is considered a lock for a fourth. N.Y.Giants beat New England Patriots, 2008 SuperBowl: Only seems right to finish this list with an NFLgame. The Patriots, quarterbacked by Tom Brady and coached by Bill Belichick, boast an unprecedented 180 record heading in and are 12-point favorites. But thanks in part to David Tyrees helmet-catc h of a desperation pass from MVPEli Manning, the Giants pull off the 17-14 surprise. Pick 6: From Broadway Joe to Buster, major upsets rfntbr By RICH DUBROFF Associated PressBALTIMORE A w oman who lost her leg in t he Boston Marathon bombi ngs has returned to a race c ourse, serving as the hono rary starter for the B altimore Marathon.

By ROB MAADDI Associated PressPHILADELPHIA If C hip Kelly hadnt turned the T ampa Bay Buccaneers d own, Greg Schiano might n ot be in the NFL. The two coaches can talk a bout their career paths when t he Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) v isit the Buccaneers (0-4) on S unday. Two years ago, the Glazer f amily tried to lure Kelly a way from Oregon. The three Glazer brothers a nd general manager Marc D ominik met Kelly on the r oad while he was on a recruiting trip, made a pitch and offered him the job in Tampa. Kelly declined, respectfully. And Greg Schiano, then at Rutgers, slipped into that spot. Two years later, they are both in the NFC, both head coaches at the highest level of the game, and both looking for some consistency from rebuilding teams.

Another touchdown came with less than a minute to go in the opening stanza when quarterback Kris Johnson hit Nelson Bethea from five yards out. Three more scores came in the second quarter with Johnson taking one in himself from the 10, hitting Bethea again on a 16yarder and Holley barging in from the seven. With the 35-0 lead, the running clock was on during the second half, but that didnt stop the Wildcats from adding three more touchdowns. Jerry Browdy broke free on a 98-yard run on the second play of the third period and on the last play of the quarter Adrian Briones took it in from 19yards out. Early in the fourth, Tyler Dunlap added the final score on a six-yard run. But while they may have been overmatched this night, there were a handful of plays that could have made the final a bit more palatable. Two Hardee scores came soon after Avon Park mishandled kickoff returns and gave the Wildcats the ball in prime field position. And Brown threw two passes right on the money to receivers that could well have gone for touchdowns had they been caught. Thats kind of how its been this year, Jackson said. Well have some nice plays, but then not take advantage. Well take two steps forward and then five backward. But theres no quit in these kids. They kept competing to the end. Going through this bru tal schedule has been tough, he continued. Bu t well continue to accentua te the positive, and were at a point where with the teams coming up, theyre more on a level that we should be able to compete with. Theyll have time to accentuate the positives as the Devils now go into the ir bye week before facing district foes each of the next two with a visit from LaBelle on Oct. 25 and a trip to Lake Placid on Nov 1. As crazy as it is, with how this season has been, if we get a couple of wins there, we could be in the playoffs.

We advised the NFLand the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that an outside expert should be brought in to assess the situation and we are pleased with their decision to take that recommendation, Smith added. We have also been in regular contact with the player representatives from Tampa Bay. We will reach out to the Philadelphia Eagles player representatives today and provide them with our best medical guidance and regular updates from the outside experts. The initial cases of MRSAwere confirmed while the Bucs were in New England holding joint practices with the Patriots before a preseason game. The team hired a company to sanitize One Buc Place, the teams headquarters and training facility, on two separate occasions in an effort to minimize the prospect of other cases. The Bucs said at the time they did not know where Nicks and Tynes were exposed to MRSA. Anderson did not plan to recommend a third cleaning of the facility, but that he was working with the team on things players can do themselves to minimize the risk of getting MRSA. I can say that I believe it is a safe environment for players and staff, said Anderson, who toured the complex in August and also observed how the team practices after Nicks and Tynes were diagnosed in August. The expert said the case s involving Nicks and Tynes do not appear to be related, explaining there are differ ent strains of MRSA. We dont know about the third one yet. We still need additional information about the specific MRSA that were dealing with, Anderson said. But we can actually definitely say tha t the first two cases were no t related to each other. And, the doctor said Nicks and Tynes did not g et the infection from one another.

By CHRIS TALBOTT APMusic WriterNASHVILLE, Tenn. N othings been as hard for R obert Kirkman as killing o ff Glenn. Not only did he do away w ith a beloved character in t he comic book version of The Walking Dead, he k new hed eventually have t o face actor Steven Yeun, w ho plays Glenn on the hit A MC zombie apocalypse t elevision series. Although t he series departs from its s ource material, he knew Y eun would wonder about h is fate on Season 4, which b egins today at 9 p.m.. It was really strange for m e writing that, knowing t hat Steven was going to r ead it, Kirkman said. There was a concern like I d idnt want Steven to read it a nd think I was mad at h im. Lucky for Yeun, then, that K irkman isnt like George R .R. Martin. When fans w ent bonkers over the seas on-ending Game of T hrones episode Red W edding, Martin, author of t he books the series is based o n, chided fans they needed o nly to read his novels to k now what was coming. K irkman gives his watchers, r eaders and actors no s uch road map. Kirkman and the shows c reators long ago decided to v eer away from the source m aterial in key places, so G lenns sudden passing in t he pages of pivotal issue N o. 100 were not going t o tell you anything more, b ut rest assured its spectacu larly terrible did not m ean Yeuns days are numb ered on the show. N ecessarily. No, theres never reass urances on the show, Yeun c onfirmed. Obviously, I w ould like to keep it going a s long as possible, but it w ould be fun to go out that w ay too. ... At first when I r ead it I was like, Wow.I t hought it was brave. I t hought it was terrifying. I a ctually loved it. I mean w hat a way to take a b eloved character away f rom the readers, just snatch i t away. The Season 3 finale, w hich drew a cable dramati c series record 12.4 million v iewers, left the comic b ooks fans in a titter as the e pically megalomaniacal b ad guy The Governor m owed down most of his f ollowers with an automatic r ifle and fled, very much a live. At that point, the s how took a hard turn from t he comic where the showd own with The Governor h ad a very final conclusion. There are other differe nces that consume longt ime fans of the comic. For i nstance, whens Rick going t o lose his arm? Or will he? W hy did they have to kill o ff Andrea, who plays a l arge role in the comic? Kirkman sits in a room alone dreaming up the comic, but when he gets in a room with the shows producers and other writers, he says hes not protecting his baby. I sometimes am the loudest when it comes to lets change things up and lets make things different, Kirkman said. Were all of the mind that the television show is a different animal, so while were adapting these stories we do want to keep things fresh and new for the television audience just like it was fresh and new with the comic book audience the first time they read it, so I feel like those changes are important. Though few details have leaked out about Season 4, Kirkman and supervising producer Scott Gimple confirm The Governor plays a role going forward and the shows main characters, led by Rick Grimes, remain in their hard-won prison safe haven with several new additions from Woodbury. Were doing some very new and interesting things with The Governor in Season 4, as youll see, Kirkman said. ... The new season is about the continuing progression of these characters and their lives, so while were still in the prison, it is a very different prison than what weve known thus far, and they have kind of built a little pocket of civilization within those fences. In a trailer for the upcoming season, we see new faces, crops growing within the prison walls and children learning lessons all signs of civilization. There are also walkers within the walls and plenty of trouble. In an unguarded moment, Kirkman says the character Daryl is expanding the prison population by bringing in new survivors under a special protocol to screen out the dangerous a clear reference to future events in the comic book. Gimple said fans of the comic will see bits and pieces like that incorporated more and more into the show. While Kirkman has always pushed for fresh storylines, Gimple acknowledges that a 16-show season means theyll likely be relying on the source material more than before. I use this term a lot its like were remixing the comic, Gimple said. Gimple promises more character studies in his first season as show runner, and varied storytelling formats. There will be plenty of gore and the horror conventions that bring in some fans, but there will also be more philosophical examinations into human nature. Ultimately theyre in an ugly world and how ugly is that going to make them? Gimple asks. I will say the theme of this season is are we too far gone, are these characters too far gone, have they gone through too much? Have they endured too much to still be people, to still be able to just be human beings, to experience love, to experience happiness, to be more than animals just surviving? www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, October 13, 2013 Page B5 GRIFFIN'S CARPET MART; 7.444"; 10"; Black; 10/13/13; 0 0 0 3 2 8 8 3 For the past six years, I have had the privilege of sharing my experiences, knowledge and thoughts regarding natural resources with the wonderful citizens of Highlands County through my News from the Watershed column in the News-Sun. It has truly been a blessing to write these articles and share my passion about the natural world and its plants, animals and environmental issues. I have also had the opportunity to get to know many of my readers and have enjoyed sharing stories and experiences. But, as we all know, all good things must come to an end eventually. This will be my last column. I am not leaving the county, but other duties in my position require more attention and so my News from the Watershed writing days have come to an end. But I am still available to help out and answer questions regarding environmental subjects at any time. As the Environmental Specialist for Highlands County, I have various and diversified duties. I enjoy my job very much and am happy that there is a sense of accomplishment at the end of each day. One of the tasks that I enjoy the most is managing the Sun n Lake Preserve. The beautiful, 1,350-acre stretch of land has become one of my favorite places and I consider it a pleasure to work there. I am fortunate to have a job that allows me to be out in nature and lend a helping hand at the same time. We have come a long way since I first became the Environmental Specialist and many goals and accomplishments have been completed. But there is always so much more to be done when it comes to the natural world. Environmental lands must be managed in a way that they stay healthy and pristine. That takes quite a bit of work. Many folks may believe that a piece of land left on its own will be just fine, but that is simply not the case. Invasive exotic plants and animals can take over a site in no time at all. Thats why we must all do our part not to spread these plants and animals into natural areas. Just look at the problem the pythons are causing in the Everglades. But its not always such an obvious dilemma. Many plants that have been introduced to our state such as Lygodium and Cogon grass are literally taking over. Removal of these invasive species is one of the main tasks in managing the Preserve. These exotic plants take up nutrients; space and water that the native species need to survive. Another important undertaking in keeping the forest in its natural condition is performing prescribed burns. Back in the early days, before the Europeans came to this land, fire was a natural occurrence. It would burn for miles until it came to a natural fire break and put itself out. These flames kept the forests in healthy condition by getting rid of excess fuels and thinning out the weaker trees and shrubs. It also kept the forest from being taken over by a different type of plant community by burning out the unwelcome species of plants. So we must give Mother Nature a helping hand and perform such burns on a yearly basis. Today, we cannot allow the fire to burn wherever it wants, so each burn must be carefully planned. Lately, since the past couple of prescribed burns, we have discovered gopher tortoises residing on the site. Another task that has been undertaken is trying to get these critters more comfortable. Gopher tortoises enjoy wide open spaces. Plants such as trees, vines and shrubs have a way of encroaching in these areas. It is our mission to keep these areas open so that these animals have a place to live in comfort so that they will reproduce and some day we could have a healthy popula tion of these threatened species on the property. This is only a small sampling of some of the assignments I have the privilege of carrying out for the past several years. Not all the duties are as fun, but all are vitally important to the natural resources of our amazing county and I take them all quite seriously. I strive to do my best for our environment and the citizens of Highlands County. I will miss writing the co lumn, but it is my hope that these articles have taught ot hers as much as they have taught me. Since the beginning of my writing the New s from the Watershed, the research that I have done has added to my education and abilities. Thanks to the many wonderful people who have commented, written and acknowledged this column. I hope you will stay in touch and remember I am still her e to help in any way that I am able.

We have the t echnology. The term bionic man w as the stuff of science fict ion in the 1970s, when a p opular TVshow called The Six Million Dollar M an chronicled the advent ures of Steve Austin, a form er astronaut whose body w as rebuilt using artificial p arts after he nearly died. Now, a team of engineers h ave assembled a robot u sing artificial organs, limbs a nd other body parts that c omes tantalizingly close to a true bionic man. For r eal, this time. The artificial man is the s ubject of a Smithsonian C hannel documentary that a irs Sunday, Oct. 20 at 9 p .m. Called The Incredible B ionic Man, it chronicles e ngineersattempt to assemb le a functioning body using a rtificial parts that range f rom a working kidney and c irculation system to c ochlear and retina implants. The parts hail from 17 m anufacturers around the w orld. This is the first time t heyve been assembled t ogether, says Richard W alker, managing director of S hadow Robot Co. and the l ead roboticist on the proje ct. (Its) an attempt to showc ase just how far medical s cience has gotten, he says. The robot making appeara nces in the U.S. for the first t ime this week. Having c rossed the Atlantic tucked i nside two metal trunks a nd after a brief holdup in c ustoms the bionic man w ill strut his stuff at the N ew York Comic Con festival on Friday. Walker says the robot has about 60 to 70 percent of the function of a human. It stands six-and-a-half feet tall and can step, sit and stand with the help of a Rex walking machine thats used by people whove lost the ability to walk due to a spinal injury. It also has a functioning heart that, using an electronic pump, beats and circulates artificial blood, which carries oxygen just like human blood. An artificial, implantable kidney, meanwhile, replaces the function of a modern-day dialysis unit. Although the parts used in the robot work, many of them are a long way from being used in humans. The kidney, for example, is only a prototype. And there are some key parts missing: theres no digestive system, liver, or skin. And, of course, no brain. The bionic man was modeled after Bertolt Meyer, a 36-year-old social psychologist at the University of Zurich who was born without his lower left arm and wears a bionic prosthesis. The mans face was created based on a 3D scan of Meyers face. Meyer says he initially felt a sense of unease when he saw the robot for the first time. I thought it was rather revolting to be honest, he says. It was quite a shock to see a face that closely resembles what I see in the mirror every morning on this kind of dystopian looking machine. He has since warmed up to it, especially after the man was outfitted with some clothes from the U.K. department store Harrods. And the cost? As it turns out, this bionic man comes cheaper than his $6-milliondollar sci-fi cousin. While the parts used in the experiment were donated, their value is about $1 million.

On Nov. 16, GrooVus will p ull out the saxes and rev up t he stage with their eclectic b lend of high energy jazz a nd rock hits from the past 5 0 years. Concert goers can r elive high school days from t he 1950s and s with L otela Gold on Jan. 18, 2014 a nd recall a simpler time w hen youth rocked around t he clock, Elvis was King, a nd Sam Cooke pioneered s oul music. Plan to arrive early on F eb. 22 to get your spot w hen California Toe Jam p acks the park, playing the b est classic rock from the 1 960s and 70s. On April 1 9, Rick Arnold, who wrote Hog Wild and other songs f or Hank Williams Jr., will b lend country and oldies f rom the s, s, and 70s. The band Quasimojo, k nown for penetrating guitar, w ill close out the series on M ay 17 with s and s r ock, alternative, and hardd riving blues.

Bring blank ets, lawn chairs and flashl ights and plan to enjoy an e vening of music under the s tars. Food vendors will be o nsite. Park entry fee of $6 p er vehicle (up to 8 people) i s waived after 6 p.m. on c oncert nights. Dont miss t his seasons party in the p ark! The Friends of Highlands H ammock State Park is the n onprofit Citizen Support O rganization (CSO) that w orks hard to support the p ark and promote a partners hip between the community a nd the park. Proceeds from t he concerts and other CSOs ponsored events benefit p ark improvements. Whether you attend a concert, or run in the Turkey Trot 5K, youre supporting the park. The Friends have forged a lasting partnership with the park, and a recent project proves that public/private partnerships pave the way for success. Relentless summer rains combined with years of heavy traffic from RVcampers, county roaders and park visitors had really taken a toll on park roadways by the end of August. The crumbling edges and potholes did not escape the attention of Park Manager Steven Dale. He proposed that the park split the cost of approximately $20,000 with the Friends. Consequently, the ranger station entrance, the campground entrance and the loop entrance between the county road turn-off and the Orange Grove were resurfaced by Highlands County Road and Bridge. Bicyclists, joggers, and campers on evening strolls to view the deer are delighted. Park staff suspects that the snakes are pleased, too, when they stretch out in the late afternoon to warm up and find smooth pavement. Another project of great benefit to visitors is the phone line. Callers can now get information about the park, tram tours, recreation hall and pavilion rentals, camping, the Friends, and special events without having to speak to a ranger. Camp Host Steve Mitchell, a retired AT&Temployee, installed the system this past summer. He generously donated a phone switch, the software and other equipment valued at $10,000. During the 1930s, preservation and maintenance were a primary concern of key historical figures including the Roeblings, Alexander Blair, Allen Altvater, Richard Lieber and others. In keeping with this same spirit of stewardship, the Friends work to advance and further preservation and maintenance. During the 2012-2013 fiscal year, a total of $84,000 in CSO funds was used to purchase vehicles and equipment including two Kubotas, a Polaris, weed-eaters, chainsaws, brush cutters, fuel, and complete repairs essential to park operations. Highlands Hammock has been gearing up for fall. A total of 52 volunteers representing five groups worked with park staff for three hours on National Public Lands Day. The Ridge Rangers, Boy Scout Troop 156 (Avon Park) and Boy Scout Troop 315 (Lake Wales) removed a total of 786 sand pines in an ongoing Florida scrub jay habitat restoration. The acreage can now undergo a prescribed burn in late fall. Simultaneously, Kids That Kare, a group of young Sebring families and Lake Placids Country Clovers 4H Club trimmed five loop trails. Four other volunteers completed two longer trails. The upshot of their collective efforts: seven of the eight loop nature trails have received a much needed sprucing up. In early September, sculptor Frankie Flowers and his Mountain Dan Chainsaw Art team camped in the park as volunteers with a most unique project sponsored by the Friends. They transformed two large stumps in the picnic area into a southern black bear and a Florida panther. These two large mammals tread softly in the hammock and rangers and visitors are delighted to occasionally catch a glimps e. These true Americana carvings will be officially unveiled at the 28th Annual CCC Festival on Saturday, Nov. 9, so please save the date and plan to attend this years festival. Consider joining the Friends as a member, a volunteer or bot h, and remember that Highlands Hammock is you r State Park. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, October 13, 2013 Page B7 merchant directory; 5.542"; 8"; Black plus three; process, heartland biz spotlig; 0 0 0 3 2 6 4 1 DR.

Arts & Entertainment Special to the News-SunAVON PARK A Review of the Habitation Timeline at the Blueberry Site will be presented by Dr. David Butler, archeologist, at 7 p.m. on Thursday in Building B, Room 101, at the South Florida State College Highlands Campus. The presentation is part of The Kissimmee Valley Archaeological and Historic Conservancy's (KVAHC) Speaker Series. The public is invited at no cost. The occupation of Blueberry spans thousands of years. Humans took advantage of the bountiful landscape for hunting and gathering before settling in the village site on a permanent basis. Current evidence places the initial temporary occupation in the middle archaic period (circa 5,000 to 3,000 B.C.). The permanent occupation of a group of people belonging to the Belle Glade Archaeological Culture began around A.D. 1190. Dr. Butler will show why and when these habitations began and give his understanding of why they ended. Dr. Butler is a registered professional archaeologist with 18 years of experience in Florida archaeology. He has worked in all phases of excavation and has been a field technician and supervisor for public archaeolog y research initiatives and cu ltural resource managemen t (CRM) projects. He owns his own CRM company and taught anthropology and archaeology at the college level for nine years before joining Full Sail University in 2009, where he works as an applied anthropologist focusing on the impact of culture on internet market ing. Dr. Butler has been the principle investigator at th e Blueberry Site in Lake Placid since August of 2005. Call Anne Reynolds at 863-840-3995 for details. KVAHC speaker to discuss Blueberry Site at SFSC Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Kevin Main, a Sebring resident and author of I See You There: My Fathers Love, will be speaking at the Lake Placid Library on Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 4 p.m. Main will be reading his book and providing arts and crafts for young readers ages 3-8. His book has been recognized and applauded by Michael Card and Crystal Bowman, award-winning authors. With poetic language against a backdrop of nature, this story beautifully illustrates a fathers love for his children, stated Bowman. The book is a delight for little ears and the beautiful pictures by local artist Monica Turner are sure to keep children ages 3-8 captivated. I See You There: My Fathers Love is a book written in love and with love that will bring th e young reader closer to the Heavenly Father who loves all of us, stated Sandra McLeod Humphrey, childrens author. I wrote this book because I wanted children to know that they are simply and completely loved, said Main. And I wanted to draw a parallel between a fathers love and our Heavenly Fathers love. As a parent of four children, I know how important it is for children to be cherished.

By MELISSARAYWORTH Associated PressHalloween, the holiday b uilt around the twin pleasu res of playing dress-up and e ating too much candy, is o bviously a hit with child ren. But send invitations to y our grown-up friends and y oull probably find they h avent outgrown the urge t o don creepy costumes and c elebrate in spooky, theatric al style. Want to host a party that m erges Halloween fun with g rown-up sophistication? T urning your home into a h aunted mansion is surprisi ngly easy, says interior d esigner Brian Patrick F lynn, founder of Flynnside O ut Productions. Just ditch the cheerful o range pumpkins and smili ng ghosts for darker, more c reative dicor. Stay away from anything c ute, Flynn says, and i nstead opt for creepy-chic. Here Flynn and two other d esign experts Jon Call o f Mr. Call Designs and the l atest HGTVStar winner, T iffany Brooks offer deco rating advice for a memor able, stylish and affordable H alloween party. Natural fabrics Cheesecloth evokes a ncient mummies, while b urlap brings to mind scarec rows. Both fabrics are i nexpensive and lightw eight, but sturdy perf ect for Halloween party t ablecloths. These solid-color pieces a lso have a more adult feel t han the whimsical prints on H alloween tablecloths or n apkins designed for kids. Call likes using large s heets of brown craft paper o n buffet tables or as a runn er down the center of a H alloween dining table. C luster small gourds (the d arker and more oddly s haped, the better) along the r unner, he says, then add a f ew large pillar candles. Easily and inexpensively, youve knocked out a table t hats great for any fall holid ay, Call says. And c leanup is simple: After a p arty, throw the paper out. Flynn says you can make y our homes entryway extra c reepy by soaking large p ieces of cheesecloth in tea, t hen shredding the cloth o nce its dry. Hang the p ieces from the ceiling a bove your porch or drape it f rom walls with a few wellp laced nails to conjure up t he feel of a haunted house. Dark and dangerous colors All three designers sugg est using a muted palette o f grays, browns and black. B rooks suggests sprayp ainting pumpkins glossy g ray to create a glamorous c enterpiece. Use orange only as an a ccent, Flynn says, perhaps adding a few orange napkins to an otherwise black and gray table setting. You can also create a dramatic scene by spray-painting empty wine bottles in a matte black, he says, then replacing the labels with your own creations: Using scrapbooking labels or cardstock and a Sharpie, come up with creepy names for the liquids supposedly in the bottles. Flynn also suggests buying inexpensive wooden birdhouses or cheap Christmas village houses, then spraying them with dark gray or black paint to create a minighost town for display on your buffet table or bar.Weird wallsTake down any cheerful artwork and replace it with old portraits from thrift shops or flea markets. Halloween stores sell deliberately creepy portraits made for this purpose, but its more fun to hunt down real paintings, says Flynn. Brooks agrees that this easy decorating move can transform the feel of a room, especially if the room will be lit only by candles. (She plans to shut off her electricity entirely during a Halloween party this year, filling each room with just enough black pillar candles to provide dim, flickering light.) Once youve hung your new gallery of portraits, Flynn suggests taping tiny pieces of black construction paper over the eyeballs in the pictures for a haunted mansion feel. Serious thingsFlynn also recommends trolling thrift shops and flea markets for items that evoke dusty, dated Victorian style, or midcentury pieces that seem lifted from a s Hitchcock movie. Fill old apothecary jars and other glass containers with water tinted with yellow and green food coloring to suggest formaldehyde. Then drop anything tiny plastic animals, seed pods, bits of moss into the colorful liquid. Or create terrariums by filling glass vases with twigs, moss, and tiny plastic bugs and snakes. Seek out second-hand treasures: real or fake taxidermy, stone bust bookends, antique dolls and toys, and vintage books and laboratory or surgical equipment. If youre lucky, you might even come across some old mannequin heads. What was once a wig display can serve as an eye-popping Halloween centerpiece. Other inexpensive additions to your party space: Fill vases with bare branches spray-painted black, tying a few small bats from a craft store to the limbs. Flynn also suggests slipping belts around the backs of chairs to suggest that dinner guests may not escape the table easily. And Brooks recommends using a hodgepodge of mismatched and even scratched dishes from thrift shops (cleaned well, of course) to give your table an off-kilter, haunted house feel. Afinishing touch to inspire Halloween guests: One of my neighbors here is an actor, says Brooks, who lives in Antioch, Ill. So shes going to come in as a guest and get the conversation going in a creepy direction. Chances are you know at least one person who would take on the role of spooky storyteller or mystery visitor, adding a layer of theater to the party.

This i s an astounding accomplishm ent for the duo who took t he real estate market in H ighlands County by storm i n late 2010. Many people (both in the r eal estate industry and out) t old us we were crazy for g etting into real estate when w e did, Mandy Elliott said. The market was down and y ou never heard anything g ood about the market or the i ndustry in general. H owever, we were determ ined to be successful e ven in a badmarket. T here were still sellers who n eeded to sell and buyers w ho wanted to buy. And thats exactly what t hey have done. Through h ard work and dedication to t heir business they have made a name for themselves in the business. Failure was not an option, Norman Elliott said. We treat our business as a job. More often than not we are the first ones in the office bright and early in the morning and many times, the last to leave. The Elliotts pride themselves on their customer service and communication with their buyers and sellers and have put a team in place to do so. Their team consists of a full-time buyers agent, a full-time personal assistant as well as a phenomenal partnership with Clifford R. Rhoades PAand staff, who not only closes their transactions with ease, but also negotiates short sales for their sellers in record time. The Elliotts agree that their motivation for success is driven by their family. They have six children with ages ranging from 2 to 17 who are all very busy with school and extracurricular activities. The Elliott Team can be reached at 273-2861. Their office is at RE/MAX Realty Plus in the Keys Plaza just south of Hammock Road at 809 US 27 South.

DearAbby: I am a 19year-old female who is serving in the U.S. Air Force. Im stationed overseas at the moment, and I plan to make the military my career. I have reached a point in life when I am ready to have a family. Unfortunately, I havent found a man who is compatible with me. Every relationship I have ends because it conflicts with my military schedule. I know adoption is a hard process, but Im willing to go through it. What do you think about my trying to adopt as a single parent? Unsure of My Next Move in England DearUnsure: Im glad you asked because I think youre jumping the gun. At 19, your search for someone compatible has been limited because of your youth and job responsibilities. Who would care for your little one if you, as a single mother, were transferred to a hot spot, or injured or worse? Would relatives assume the responsibility? Before becoming a mother adoptive or otherwise its important that you think about this realistically from the point of view of what would be best for the child. If you wait to become a parent until you are older, as many women do today, you will be better equipped emotionally and financially for the responsibility. DearAbby: I have a friend whose child is brilliant. He is testing in the 99.5 percentile. At 7, he is already far in advance of his classmates. He has read chapter books since age 5, is doing algebra and asking post-doctoral math and science questions, according to a professor close to the family. His mother is in denial. She says the other kids will catch up in time. If he had special needs in another area, I know shed be in there fighting to get him appropriate services and accommodations. Please, Abby, what can we do to convince his mother that he needs more than what his inner-city schools can provide? I was one of those kids, and I know he needs contact with other kids who match his intellectual level more closely. Concerned Friend in New Jersey DearConcerned: The mother may be in denial, but the childs teachers and principal must surely have recognized his abilities. Enlist their help in convincing the mother to see that her son advances at a rate appropriate for his IQ. When students are as far ahead academically as the child you describe, they can become bored and disruptive. It would be in everyones interest to see that he is placed in classes where he can continue to excel regardless of whether the others catch up. DearAbby: With Halloween fast approaching, I would like to remind cat owners to keep them safely indoors on the days surrounding this holiday. Unfortunately, some people still associate cats with Halloween superstitions. Please do not assume that black cats are the only felines at risk. Any cat can be the target of a cruel Halloween prank. Cat Lover in the South DearCat Lover: Thank you for the reminder. Please, everyone, keep yourselves and your pets safe this Halloween.

I was a 28-yearold single mom struggling to get by. I lived in a tiny but adequate apartment with my young son. Preschool was just around the corner. My world still felt somewhat upside down, but was beginning to right itself. Then news from my landlord blew my fragile boat like strong wind in a storm. They had decided they wanted our apartment back. We needed to move. As I checked the local newspaper for apartments, I realized how fair my present landlords had been with the rent.How could I ever afford first month, last month and security at such high rates? I was scared. Each morning I awoke with the dread of another day of wondering how I would be able to find another place on my extremely limited income. Looking at my situation from the whim of other peoples plans was insurmountable. I was sinking fast. After about a week of tossing and turning, I realized my thoughts had become wayward and, therefore, led to wayward actions. When I cried out, Lord, help me! my perspective changed to Godward thinking and blessings followed. It reminded me of Peter seeing Jesus walking on the stormy sea toward the disciples struggling boat.They were afraid, so as we read in Matthew 14: 27 NKJV, Jesus said, Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid. Peter, emboldened by Jesus words, said, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.Then Jesus said, Come. (vs. 28 29) Now here was the test. With his eyes and thoughts Godward, Peter walked on the water to Jesus. But, the minute his thoughts and eyes left Jesus, he began to sink and cried out for help. Thats where I was. I ha d been walking by faith, thoughts Godward, and righting my upturned life little by little. But, then an unexpected storm arose an d my thoughts became wayward. However, when I called out to the Lord, one by on e his saving hand opened doors I couldnt have discovered without him. And I heard his admonition, O you of little faith, why did you doubt? (vs. 31) Godward thoughts should begin the moment we open our eyes because they are formative thoughts and critically important. Pursue the presence of God with praise and thanksgiving. His blessings are unlocked by a heart pursu ing him first. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent. Wayward or Godward?

Page B14 News-SunSunday, October 13, 2013 www.newssun.com JOIN ASTAR PARTYAs the astronomer described the constellation Sirius, pinpoints scattered in the wide, black sky slowly took shape as Orions faithful dog. I watched the faces of my kids, Holley, Collin and Bridget, light up: that excitement is what I love about stargazing. Over the years, we have returned many times to McDonald Observatory in Fort Davis, Texas. We tap into professional knowledge at outdoor star parties, glimpse heavenly sights, such as star nebulae and Saturns rings, through a telescope and peruse exhibits in the visitorscenter. With its clear skies and temperate weather, fall is a perfect time to visit the observatory, part of the University of Texas at Austin (and to camp in nearby Davis Mountains State Park, where stars barely visible at home shine brightly in the dark night). Weve also made treks to other observatories, including Canyon of the Eagles Lodge and Nature Park in Burnet, Texas (canyonoftheeagles. com; 800-9770081). Wherever we go, my kids now make a point of looking for Sirius. (McDonald Observatory holds star parties three times a week: $12 for adults, $8 for kids ages 6 to 12, free for kids 5 and under; mcdonaldobservatory.org; 877-984-7827.)FIND ONE NEAR YOU:For listings of star parties and telescope viewings, go to telescopes.stardate.org/ guide/public.php or contact your local astronomy club (locate one at skyandtelescope.com/community/ organizations, nightsky.jpl.nasa.gov, or goastronomy. com). Some national parks, including one of our favorites, Big Bend National Park in Texas, also hold regular stargazing events (search nps.gov by park or event). Melissa GaskillSAMPLE CIDER AT THE SOURCEWhen the air takes on a November chill, my familys thoughts turn to a special holiday treat: rich, tart apple cider. Its time to head to the Warwick Valley Apple Trail in New York state, which leads to local cider presses and sweet sipping spots. Dark and delicious, the cider they sell is as different from commercial apple juice as cream is from skim milk. Our son, Aidan, 9, a connoisseur since his first seasonal sip at age 1, eagerly awaits the chance to sample varieties from the five farms along our route. Our favorite stop is Pennings Orchard, where we also pick apples and visit baby animals; its wooden hand press gives up our first fragrant cup. The only thing Aidan likes better than cold cider? Hot, cinnamon-y mulled cider! he says. Especially when its served with warm, cider-infused, nutmegflecked doughnuts, which we watch being cooked in the open kitchen. (warwickvalleyapple trail.com; penningsfarmmarket.com; 845-986-1059)FIND ONE NEAR YOU:To create your own cider trail, visit orangepippin.com. It has detailed information on thousands of apple orchards located in more than 40 states, along with descriptions of apple varieties. Some orchards outsource their cider production, so if you want to watch presses in action, call before you go to see if thats on tap. And ask about other activities they may offer, including apple picking, hayrides, festivals, or visits with farm animals. For ideas on cooking your apple bounty, see nyapplecountry.com/recipes.htm. Melissa KlurmanWITNESS WILDLIFE MIGRATIONIf you look down at your binoculars, the guide warns, youll lose sight of the birds. Instead, he tells us, keep your eyes on the eagles and bring the binoculars up to your face. Using this technique, we spy a bald eagle sitting on the ice, an ominous blackbacked shadow just far enough away from a flock of mallards that they bob unconcerned in the unfrozen part of the lake. Then it happens. I cant believe what my three children and I are seeing. The eagle takes to the air and swoops down upon a sickly duck hes been eyeing, carrying it away in his sharp talons. The Klamath Basin National Wildlife Refuges, on the California/Oregon border, are the winter homes for one of the largest concentrations of bald eagles in the country (see right). (They begin arriving in November and stay until March.) But spectacular viewing of the raptors wasnt our only reward for braving the cold. On the 10-mile Lower Klamath Refuge loop road, we were lucky enough to spot two coyotes, four river otters, one mule deer and a great horned owl. (fws.gov/klamathbasinrefuges; 530-667-2231)FIND ONE NEAR YOU:Raptors migrate through or overwinter in many regions of the country. Other hot spots for eagles include Skagit River Bald Eagle Center, Rockport, Wash. (skagiteagle.org); Karl E. Mundt National Wildlife Refuge, Lake Andes, S.D.

(fws. gov/blackwater); and the American Bald Eagle Foundation, Haines, Ala., (baldeagles.org). At Cape May Bird Observatory, in Cape May, N.J. (birdcapemay.org), you can see many migrating hawks. Jennifer MargulisMASTER ACORN MAZEIn 2011, my then-7-year-old upped the adrenaline factor on our annual pilgrimage to the corn maze at Lyman Orchards in Littlefield, Conn.: he navigated it unchaperoned, with his three best friends. Four acres of corn way over their heads, and two miles of trails in which to lose themselves (or not, thanks to teenage corn cops posted at major intersections). Seen from above, the maze depicted an American flag with an eagle inset. Designed by international maze maven Brett Herbst, it included two bridges that peeked over the amber waves of grain, but apparently those (and the map) werent of much use to our valiant crew of second-graders. We just kept trying different paths, Quinn said, explaining their strategy. It was a little freaky, but it was awesome. The best part? When we found the eagles eye! This years Lyman Orchards design features Lady Liberty. (Maze is open through Nov. 3; $10 for adults, $5 for kids ages 4 to 12, free for kids 3 and under; lymanorchards.com; 860-349-1793.)FIND ONE NEAR YOU:Theres now a corn maze in nearly every state. Two online directories (themaize.com and cornmazesamerica.com) can help you locate one in your area. Always check with the hosting farm in advance to confirm details and learn about their other offerings, such as wagon rides, farm stands or pick-your-own harvesting. When you go, wear good walking shoes and pack sunscreen, water and a watch (so you can time your trek).
