SPORTS, B1 By PHILATTINGER firstname.lastname@example.orgAVON PARK If youve ever wondered how many units the U.S. Army has created over the years, you might arrange a visit to the Avon Park National Guard Armory. Theres a collection there of approximately 2,000 insignia pins, framed under glass. Old vets come in to find their unit, said Sgt. 1st Class James Metz. Metz said he hopes to catalog the collection, complete with information sheets on each insignia and photographs. Without photos, hed have no idea how to put it back together, he said. The only man who could help him do that is 1st Sgt. Edwin J Kurabieski, who amassed the collection during and in between three wars: World War II, Korea and Vietnam. Kurabieski, since 2005, has been resting at Arlington National Cemetery, joined by his wife, Jennie J., in 2007, and their beloved dog, Benjamin, whose ashes were tucked under Kurabieskis arm before his funeral, said their son, Bob. Bob Kurabieski donated the collection to the Armory because he wanted a place where it could be both appreciated and kept safe from harm. Ed was meticulous with these. He Jackson began chemotherapy for her cancer treatment in July. As the weeks went by, the most noticeable and well-known side effect from the chemo began. Her hair was falling out in fistfuls, said Stewart. She decided she wanted to shave it because she was losing so much of it so quickly. Stewart and Mandy Guthrie, also one of Jades aunts, decided they would also shave their heads in order to support their ailing niece. Jade shaved her head on a Wednesday. We arrived in Sebring that weekend. It was a Saturday and our brother-in-law Travis (Crosson) shaved our heads, Stewart said. After the shaving was done, family gathered to inspect Beths freshly-bald head. Beth and I are both active, rough girls growing up, so were looking at her head, checking for scars and war wounds and we see this spot. It wasnt actually a spot, though. We knew it wasnt a mole or a scab (but) I dont really know how you would describe it, Guthrie said. Once the head survey was done, they moved on to Guthries new haircut and the spot was soon forgotten.

By PHILATTINGER firstname.lastname@example.orgAVON PARK For H alloween this year, V eterans of Foreign Wars P ost 9853 has sent in the c lowns. This years haunted house i ncludes a circus theme. Volunteer Crystal Vines s aid she, her husband and d aughter and volunteers f rom the VFWand from H ighlands Lakes Volunteer F ire Department have bande d together again to put on t he annual fundraiser. At $3 per person, Vines s aid it's among the least e xpensive live-performer H alloween events in H ighlands County. All proceeds go to the V FWto help local veterans, s he said. We do it for the local v eterans, Vines said. Both she and her husband a re members of the posts a uxiliary, since both of their f athers served in the U.S. A rmy. Several of the volunteer a ctors are from the fire d epartment, she said. Having l ive performers allows them t o ramp up or tone down a p erformance based on the n ext group that comes t hrough the house. People do jump out, Vines said, but they can adjust it to any audience. Last year, the performers adjusted their performance for a group from the Ridge Area Arc. Vines said she may have to work on that. The scary clown mask she and her husband got this year scares her, even when her husband is wearing it. As in years past, the VFW Haunted House will be selling drinks and food hamburgers, hot dogs and shrimp and will have candy bags for the kids. Kids may get stuffed animals and other prizes if they have a really good costume, or if they are very wellbehaved, Vines said. If you go, the VFW Haunted house is from 6-9 p.m. Friday and Saturday at 75 N. Olivia Drive in Avon Park, just off State Road 64. For details, contact Vines at 449-0617. Special to the News-SunAVON PARK South Florida State College will host Food Day, a nationwide celebration and a movement toward more healthy, affordable and sustainable food cultivating. Food Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on on Thursday, Oct. 24, in the SFSC University Center auditorium and lobby. The event is free and open to the public.

Students will have the opportunity to practice and teach the public what they have learned about nutrition and how it relates to their profession. The event will feature healthy cooking and gardening demonstrations, student videos, sidewalk art, a movie screening, and several informational booths. Local farmers will provide fresh fruit and vegetables available for purchase. SFSCs chapter of the Association of Florida Colleges will hold a food drive during the event and will accept healthy, nonperishable food items including boxed, bagged, and canned food.

The so-called governm ent shutdown is being blamed f or the lag in the release of joblessn ess numbers for the month of S eptember. Astatement from the D epartment of Economic O pportunity indicated it is being a ttributed to to the federal governm ents shutdown saying in part; ... the U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics suspended all data collection activities. Officials of the Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) did not indicate how long it might take for the bureau to obtain the survey figures they use to determine the unemployment estimates released monthly for cities and counties throughout the Sunshine State. The data that we use to process the states unemployment and job creation figures come from the U.S. Department of Labors Bureau of Labor statistics, said DEO spokeswoman Jessica Simms. They collect the data that we use to process those numbers. That is done through a survey process of phone and records sampling which they use to arrive at their estimates of the numbers of people that are employed, unemployed and in the labor force. That then is used in a formula to determine a joblessness number. Nevertheless, there are job indicators available from the private sector as Florida heads back into the season of tourists and citrus harvesting. According to the ADPRegional Employment report released earlier this month, Florida added 16,640 jobs during September. Noted as a leading provider of human capital management, ADPdid the study in connection with Moodys Analytics. That survey indicated some 13,120 of those jobs came from the service providing sector, with the remainder from goods-producing services. More specifically, the break down included 4,310 in trade transportation and utilities, 2,970 in professional and business services, 2,840 in natural resources, mining and construction with the final 690 in the manufacturing section. Meanwhile, DEO officials said it appeared that unemployed Floridians are beginning to file for jobless claims again. Anew $63 million system used to process unemployment insuran ce claims came online earlier this week. The old system used by the sta te was shut down last week. An estimated 235,000 people in Florida receive unemployment be nefits every two weeks.

By PHILATTINGER firstname.lastname@example.orgSEBRING Deputies have arrested and charged a husband and wife believed to be part of a four-month ring of fraudulent returns at JCPenney at Lakeshore Mall. Christopher Michael Thomas, 32, and Nancy Jeanne Thomas, 30, have been charged each with a count of grand theft, dealing in stolen property and fraud by swindling. Nancy Thomas is in Highlands County Jail in lieu of $184,500 and Christopher Thomas is in jail in lieu of $122,000. During the investigation, deputies learned that a cashier hired in late April was involved in a scheme to return merchandise without store receipts in exchange for gift cards. According to reports, Christopher Thomas was involved in at least eight transactions from May 11 through July 28, 2013, adding up to a total of $1,958.30. Reports also connect Nancy Thomas with 12 incidents from May 11 to July 27, 2013, adding up to a total of $1,446.22. The scheme, according to reports, also included another man and two other women, along with the cashier. Reports do not indicate whether they all have been arrested or charged at this time. Reports state that it turne d out the items were never even purchased in the store and the value of the gift cards was often more than the value of the clothes. After people involved in the scam received the cards the cards were then sold at a local gold buyers store for half of the loaded value of the cards, reports said. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, October 20, 2013 Page A3 JC PENNEY; 7.444"; 15"; Black plus three; process mainA IO085091358136#1; 0 0 0 3 2 4 6 6 MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 3"; Black; rhr top of ad stack; 0 0 0 3 2 6 8 4 ORANGE BLOSSOM TOURS; 3.639"; 4"; Black plus three; process, main rhr top salvidor; 0 0 0 3 3 0 5 6 By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Highlands C ounty Economic D evelopment commission m embers met this past W ednesday for their annual r etreat and officials say t hey plan to stay the course i n spite of financial chall enges. Those funding chall enges were handed to the E DC by the Highlands C ounty Commission during S eptember budget hearings, w hen commissioners voted t o let the organization live o n its savings and solicit s upport from the local c ommunity. Wednesday began with t he EDCs monthly busin ess meeting then transf ormed into the retreat w here goals and a strategic p lan for the upcoming m onths were formulated. Paul McGehee, who c hairs the EDC board, said t he purpose of the retreat w as to obtain both a view o f the operations current s tatus and then turn toward t he future, both short and l ong term. Quite frankly, we wante d to have a positive outl ook and plan for three to f ive years out, he said. The only thing that makes a strategic plan work is s trategic thinking. The board arrived at t hree goals: to strengthen t he economic base of the c ounty, to collaborate with o ther area entities to elimin ate duplication of effort a nd to consider improvem ents to infrastructure and s ustainability in the county. From those goals, a more s pecific action plan will be d rawn. We will established a s ub-committee to develop t he actual action steps, M cGehee said. He said that method both w ould help keep the EDC o n its path as well as e nable it to provide quart erly reports to county commissioners who want to track the groups progress. During the business meeting, members were told about a couple of potential business prospects for the county. We are hearing they both are interested in the same location, McGehee said. Due to confidentiality restrictions, he could neither reveal the entities nor the location they had been eying. One is a distribution company, I can tell you that much, he said. As you know, some of these projects can take a bit of time from the first contact to completion. The group also discussed a new metal roofing company slated to relocate to the Sebring Regional Airports industrial park and adopted their budget, at least until April. We are going to maintain our allocations for Floridas Heartland Rural Economic Development Commission (FHREDI) for small business development and for the Sebring airport, McGehee said. The board was unanimous in saying they wanted to continue with those relationships. McGehee also revealed the EDCs fundraising drive, which reportedly had been on the back burner, will again be revitalized. He said each member of the board had been tasked with making personal contacts. We should be out advocating in the community, he said Aplan to develop informational materials, such as a pocket card with The 5 Good Reasons for Joining the EDC also is in development.

As if being unable to cond uct civil meetings wasnt e nough, attitudes during d ebate revealed an alarming i solationism and prejudice a mong many present. We do not refer to racial t ensions, but to the stubborn i dea that only someone born a nd raised in Avon Park can h ave the citys best interests a t heart. The issue arose during d ebates about how to celeb rate Martin Luther King Jr. D ay in January. Discussion devolved into shouting back and forth; Monday, Mayor Sharon Schuler had to threaten expulsion in order to quiet the chamber. Some members of the Southside Advisory Board want to hire a planner, spend $10,000, have a parade and a three-day celebration downtown. Other members want to keep the celebration small and focused on education. They want to have the celebration on Kings birthday, and confine it to that day as a neighborhood event in the Southside area. They suggest a budget of $3,000. We find it hard to understand why such a seemingly simple conversation could become so hostile so quickly. We were taken aback, for example, when the professional event planner was taken to task for not being an Avon Park native. Even more astonishing was a similar attack on a long time Southside activist who, while spending most of his life here, was born in Wauchula. Avon Park has worn blinders for many generations. Too many people living in the city look with suspicion on anyone from somewhere else. Ideas proposed by outsiders are rarely taken seriously, especially if their plans include change. Things are never going to get better in Avon Park with that kind of thinking. It is what you do that makes the difference, not where youre from. The idea that only a life-long resident can be true to the city is preposterous. Its like saying you cant really love your husband or wifes family because you werent born into it. In fact, it can be argued that new residents are more connected because they can compare Avon Park to other places and see its beauty and opportunity with fresh eyes. The city needs new energy, new investment and more ideas. If it is to attract larger companies with more to offer the community, its leaders and residents have to move into the 21st century and recognize the global economy. This means we have to outgrow our xenophobia and accept people for who they are. Remember, that person from far away may have the key to the citys future. Time to get rid of the blinders C itizens, appointed board members and elected representatives joined in another acrimonious meeting at t he Avon Park Community R edevelopment Agencys meeting M onday evening. Now that the budget crisis is over (or on temporary hold) it is time for us to turn our attention to a real problem looming over the horizon. Aproblem that both Democrats and Republicans can unite to solve because the issue is so far above petty politics. What am I talking about? The looming chocolate crisis, of course. I am not kidding. According to an article I read on www.indianexpress.com, some industry experts are concerned that the worlds cocoa supply will not be able to keep up with the rising demand. At a recent meeting at the British Library in London, these people even projected a date when the world will run out of cocoa. If youre marking your calendars, its Oct. 2, 2020. Chocolate expert and taster Angus Kennedy is quoted in the article, saying that much of the space that was used for cocoa plantations is no longer there. While there isnt much growth for cocoa consumption predicted for Europe and the Americas Kennedy is expecting there to be a huge amount of growth in Asia. As a confirmed chocoholic, I am taking this report very seriously. Run out of cocoa in less than seven years? This cant be allowed to happen! I dont remember a time when I didnt like chocolate. Yes, I know the warnings about pimples and weight gain and all sorts of other dire things. When it comes to chocolate, Im willing to take my chances. When it comes to candy, I love dark chocolate. I was very happy when news came out that dark chocolate could be good for you. Doctors agreeing that I could eat chocolate? Oh, yeah. But I dont limit myself to candy. For a long time my favorite Dairy Queen Blizzard flavor was German Chocolate Brownie, though the quality of the concoction varied depending on if whoever was making Blizzards that day remembered how to create this one (its not a regular flavor). Then last month they came out with Choco-covered Cheesecake Blizzard and a new love was born. At my favorite coffee shop, Brewsters, I indulg e in their signature Brewsters Mocha white chocolate and caramel. Purists will argue that white chocolate isnt reall y chocolate at all. These pe ople need to shut up and have a Brewsters Mocha. I havent even gone into all the other ways one can feed their chocolate habit pies and cakes and even chocolate milk. And there are hot fudge sundaes with sliced banana (dont knock it until youve tried it). Andand The point is that running out of cocoa is a Bad Thing. And we need to do what we can to stop it. How? Obviously we need more cocoa plantations. Since it takes four years to get cocoa beans from a cocoa plant, we must start now and not wait until the last minute. Start what, you ask? Annexing land for cocoa plantations, thats what. Why is there less land for these necessary locations anyway? What got put in their place? Condos? Now the problem is that cocoa plants have to be grown near the equator. So we cant exactly use our own United States to resolve the crisis. We mus t head south. Surely theres somethin g we can offer those who own prime cocoa growing land. Maybe a chance to be the 51st state? An all expenses paid trip to Disneyworld? Congress? (On second thought, who would want our Congress in its current state?) Call your Senator! Call your representative! Demand they deal with the impending chocolate shortage before its too late! I plan to join you, as soon as I finish up this hot fudge sundae and chocolate milk. Yum. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

You can easily see t hat it was a difficult farewell as she found the words to explain why this happened and what the future holds. The articles written by Ms. Burgess were always well researched, accurate and interesting. Apparently our county commissioners were not advised in advance of the move as I know that they looked to Ms. Burgess for help in trying to answer environmental questions, posed to them be constituents. Whoever was responsible for having Ms. Burgess discontinue her fine articles, should be made to testify before the county commissioners and give their reason for the action. After all, this is a taxpayer funded agency whose expertise concerning environmental concerns is always sought after. I would bet dollars-todough-nuts that many citizens of our county never knew we had a Highlands County Parks and Natural Resources Department, until Ms. Burgess started writing her most informative, interesting articles. Ms. Burgess should have been receiving a bonus for all the extra work she had to do in writing the articles. My dear wife, Ruth (residing now in Heaven), and I were happy to writ e wildlife and bird articles for the News-Sun for many years, and know from that experience how great it was to know we were educating readers.

Signs and banners greeted Sebelius a nd her laptop-swinging sherpas with a t hrong of media, all awaiting the crowd o f Pennsylvanians so hungry for afforda ble major medical health insurance p olicies that some wondered if Heinz S tadium, which holds 65,000, would be a large enough venue. About 100 people showed up. Yup. Heinz had plenty of room. Ready to show the world that O bamacare is ready to serve America, t he 100 people sat down in their turns w ith the 20 specially trained expert O bamacare navigators. Expectations were high. Confidence o verflowed. They were sitting with the b est of the best, one-on-one, in a high p rofile setting with the woman whose j ob it is to make sure everything works a s advertised. Everyone knew that they w ould be leaving the stadium with an a ffordable insurance policy and a great s tory of how the very best of the D emocratic Party personally led them t o the great manna of health care. What could possibly go wrong? Hours later, none of the now lesst han-enthusiastic Obamacare supporters got online. They waited hours and hours to see error 404 messages and blank white screens on the laptops. When asked how this could happen to the highest ranking leader of the agency leading the way with 20 of the most rigorously trained navigators, Sebelius murmured, I dont know. ALexis-Nexis search shows the mainstream media decided not to publish or broadcast the results. ITexperts have an explanation: the code is sloppy. The whole thing has to be rewritten. Oops. Aetna, Blue Cross, and Coventry are being denied to policyholders by Obamacare in many states. Some of these companies are actually leaving states because the rates paid by the federal government through the exchanges are so low that the companies can no longer provide the level of services that bring them so many customers. The President admonished, You can keep your doctor. You can keep your health insurance. You may have to move to another state to do so. For example, Obamacare is denying sick children in Missouri to be treated at the best childrens hospital in the state. As reported in Kaiser Health News, The network for the Anthem BlueCross BlueShield plans, which will be sold through Missouris Obamacaremarketplace, does not include BJC HealthCare and its 13 hospitals among them Barnes-Jewish Hospital, the areas premier academic medical center, and St. Louis Childrens Hospital. In California, The Daily Caller reports, ,000 will lose their plans to Obamacare. Oh, well. Blame it on Democrat Nancy Pelosi who insisted on opening the genies bottle. Obama spokesweasel Jay Carney needs to craft a spin that assures us that losing our doctors and insurance plans doesnt mean losing our doctors and insurance plans. Either that or craft a message by January 15th that those evil Republicans have used their wiley ways to force a year-long suspension of the Obamacare rollout and work like crazy behind the scenes to fix these endemic problems which are obviously more substantive then mere glitches. #Obamacare = #EpicFail Rick Jensen is Delawares award-winning conservative talk show host streaming live on WDEL.Com from 1-4 p.m. Contact Rick at email@example.com, or follow him on Twitter@JensenVoiceover/.

Bob Kurabieski said his f athers hobby of collecting i nsignia pins was a labor of l ove, in part for the men he s erved with and to ferret out f akes at veterans events and s wap meets. He could tell, Bob K urabieski said. His father stayed close to t he men with whom he served, h e said, including fellow Dd ay veterans who landed at N ormandy and were honored b y the French government 12 y ears ago for helping liberate F rance. When the French Consulate a sked to honor 63 veterans on F lag Day, June 14, 2001, Bob K urabieski wanted to tell the p ress about his father, but his f ather was reluctant. However, Bob Kurabieski i nsisted and gave detailed i nformation about his fathers s ervice to a reporter. His f ather kept the writers article a nd didnt make any comp laints about it a first, Bob s aid. Ed Kurabieski joked with b rothers in arms that day that i f any of them knew they w ould have lived so long, they w ould have taken better care o f themselves. He did live a little while l onger. Ed Kurabieski died at a ge 83 on May 1, 2005, a lmost four years after receivi ng thanks from the French. He was in active combat in E urope from June 6, 1944, u ntil May 8, 1945, ultimately s pending more than two years i n France. He served with the U.S. A rmy 15th Cavalry R econnaissance Squadron M echanized and received a P urple Heart for a gunshot w ound in his ankle in S eptember 1944 but not r ight away. Ed Kurabieski was tight with his fellow soldiers and didnt want to be reassigned to another unit after a stay in a hospital, so he hid his wound. He said walking on it was like having a stick shoved through his ankle. Bob Kurabieski cant imagine how his father marched on a bullet wound. Ed Kurabieski later served with the 40th Tank Battalion in Korea and with the 4th Infantry Division 1st Cavalry 2nd Squadron in Vietnam. His son, Daniel, was a Spec 4 with the 78th Artillery Unit at Fort Hood, Texas, during the Vietnam War and got orders to deploy. Since the rules still prohibited two family members from being in the same theater of war at the same time, his father with 25 years in the military took the orders instead. That tour ended in 1968. Bob Kurabieski, more than three years younger than Daniel, served in Vietnam from 1971-72 as a helicopter pilot chief warrant officer of ACompany of the 229th Assault Helicopter Battalion 1st Cavalry Division. His aviation unit pin may not be in the collection, he said, but his father definitely had pins for infantry, armored and artillery units. Metz said some units were added for the buildup after 9/11. With the drawdown, theyre talking about folding some of those flags, Metz said. He couldnt recall how many total units the Army had and still has. Keeping track of the right pins is important, Bob Kurabieski said, because when a soldier is killed in combat he or she must be buried with their correct pins and the funeral director cant wait for their effects to be sent home. For Ed Kurabieskis funeral, he was buried in his old dress blue uniform, the new standard for dress uniforms, Metz said an homage to the Union Army of the Civil War. He never asked anything of his family, said Dawn Kurabieski, except to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery. Of course, they honored his wish, she said. Each year they visit his father and put a cigar in the ground by his grave for him. As for his fathers award from the French, Bob Kurabieski said that will go to his grandson his fathers great-grandson to honor family history.

For instance, an MSBU is a special assessment. In o rder to be implemented, the a ssessed property must d erive a special benefit by t he improvement or service p rovided. Moreover, the assessment m ust be fairly and reasona bly appointed among the p roperties that receive the b enefit. According to the s tatutes, there must be a l ogical relationship between t he service and the benefit. While there generally is n ot a significant saving to t he general fund, it does s erve to redirect payment to t hose who receive the servi ce. Some examples of the s ervices permitted under an M SBU include fire or g arbage services and street i mprovements. On the other hand, an M STU may encompass the e ntire unincorporated area, a p ortion of the unincorporate d area or even all or part of t he boundaries of a municipality. However, to include any cities or towns, the councils of those municipalities also must consent to be included. Under the statutes, an MSTU is an ad valorem tax. That means the taxable values still would be subject to approved exemptions. It also permits the board to isolate the cost of services. Some examples of services allowed under an MSTU include law enforcement and libraries as well as parks and recreation. Fisher said that either an MSBU or and MSTU would have to be established within a time frame that would allow it to be included on the tax roll. Should the commission decide to pursue that course, the process would have to be completed by May. Also up on the Tuesday night agenda will be a fiscal year-end presentation by Tax Collector Eric Zwayer. That report is expected to cover the activities of Zwayers office over the past year, including such things as transactions, what they have done on the tax rolls as well as a number of new things that will be upcoming. Zwayer did indicate that although he would be returning some money to the board, it probably will not be as much as has been in years past. Last year we gave back to the board about $650,000, he said. But with the tax roll shrinking, it is going to be less this year. He said that commissions from the tax rolls represents nearly 70 percent of the revenue for his office. The meeting will get underway at 5 p.m. Tuesday evening in the Highlands County Government Center.

Continued from A2 Board member Parke Sutherland said the Southside CRAAdvisory Board had planned on a four-day event starting on Jan. 17, 2014, and ending on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Jan. 20. However, approximately 25 community members at the special meeting said they want a one-day event on Jan 20. The voice from the majority of the community, those present, is that they wanted to take back the running of the Martin Luther King Jr. events, Sutherland said. They also want to reroute the parade. For the past two years, it started at Museum Avenue and then followed Main Street to Memorial Field, he said. They would rather have the parade march through the Southside community. The CRABoard asked community leaders to submit a proposal for the event, including any funding requests, in time for the boards regular meeting Oct. 28. At previous meetings of the advisory board, community members objected to the CRAplans which included a $10,000 budget and fundraiser on Nov. 1 on the basis that it made the event more of a carnival than an remembrance. They also objected to the high budget, stating those funds would be better served providing home repairs and infrastructure improvements in the Southside CRAdistrict. Arnold Davis, advisory board alternate, had submitted a request for a small( $3,000 or less) event to the advisory board. He was not available for comment Friday. However, Advisory Board Chairman Gerald Snell, who had originally supported the four-day event, told the City Council on Monday and the CRAboard on Thursday that he fully supported the CRAboards decision. Its all volunteers, and Im OK with that, he said in a phone interview Friday. The advisory board would still be meeting on Nov. 14, the second Thursday of the month, he said, if any one has requests for facade grants and other improvements to the Southside district. Administrative Services Director Maria Sutherland told the advisory board at previous meetings that the CRAhad already spent $3,500 to hire Travis Garcia as the event planner and $1,800-$2,000 to bring artist James Hahn to do a live-painting fundraiser on Nov. 1 at the Jacaranda Hotel. The fundraiser was meant to help offset the costs of the four-day event, since projected revenue from the event was estimated at $6,000 at $25 per ticket. Snell said, as far as he knew, the fundraiser was still scheduled and could easily pay for the communitys funding request, with a surplus. Continued from A1 Continued from A1 Fisher MARYB.

Obituaries County Commission meets Tuesday Community Briefs MLK Day celebration to be smaller in AP rf By TAMARALUSH Associated PressST. PETERSBURG Senior U.S. House Republican Bill Young was being remembered as a defense hawk, with a passion for looking after the needs of men and women in uniform and those of his constituents back in Florida. Young died Friday at age 82, a week after announcing from his hospital bed that he wouldnt seek a 23rd term. Its only been a week since we began trying to imagine the House without Bill Young an impossible task in its own right and now he is gone, House Speaker John Boehner, said in a statement. In our sorrow, we recall how not a day went by without a colleague seeking Bills counsel as he sat on his perch in the corner of the House floor. Looking out for our men and women in uniform was his lifes work, and no one was better at it. No one was kinder, too. Florida was always top priority. Young brought hundreds of millions of dollars in earmarks back to the Tampa Bay area in his 43 years in Congress, and built up a defense contracting industry in the region, creating jobs and stirring the economy. His loss is a great one for his constituents, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said in a statement. For over 13 years, I considered Bill to be a dear friend and a colleague that could always be counted on to provide sage advice based on decades of experience. First elected to the House in 1970, Young was one of the strongest supporters in Congress of defense. So he made headlines in 2012 when he said the United States should withdraw its forces from Afghanistan. Young told The Associated Press at the time that were killing kids who dont need to die, and reflected the growing weariness with a conflict that had dragged on for more than a decade. Young, who had been involved in Florida politics since 1957, was considered the elder statesman of the states Republican Party and in the U.S. House of Representatives. In recent years, Young became increasingly frail and relied on a wheelchair. He was quoted by The Tampa Tribune recently as saying that his decision to retire an d not seek re-election in 2014 was based on both his healt h and a desire to spend more time with his family. His chief of staff, Harry Glenn, said in an email that Young died at 6:50 p.m. at Walter Reed Medical Cente r in Bethesda, Md. APphoto Rep. C.W. Bill Young, Florida's longest-serving member of Congress and a defense hawk who was influential on military spending during his 43 years in Washington, died Friday. He was 82.

Not only was it the final h ome game for the Streaks, b ut it was also Senior Night. Coming off of an emotiona l loss Tuesday night to the G reen Dragons, the two S ebring seniors, Jordan H inkle and Lindsey W hittington, did not want to r emember their senior regul ar season end with two losse s to county rivals. After being swept by the D ragons, the Streaks flipped t he script Thursday and stepped up to sweep the Devils. Its just frustrating, I feel like we never really got going tonight. I dont think we ever had focus, said Avon Park head coach Shane Wirries. The Streaks were off to a booming start with senior leader Hinkle at the front laying down kill after kill and forcing Avon Park to call a timeout down 5-0. ADevil kill put them up on the board for the first time right after the timeout. And this seemed to have given the Red Devils a shift in momentum as they started to close the gap on Sebring to an 11-10 lead, until a Hannah Gotsch kill tied the score at 11. Kills by Marina Torres and Harley Hutzinger put the Devils just one point behind the Streaks 18-17. Atricky tip by Hinkle pushed Sebrings lead to 2218, forcing Avon Park to use their second timeout. With Hinkle bringing in point after point, she was a key weapon Whittington used to keep her offense on top. Another Hinkle tip followed by a kill would end the set 25-18 with the Streaks on top. The Devils would be first on the board at the beginning of the second set as the two teams battled for the lead back and forth. An Imani Tate kill would decrease Sebrings lead over Avon Park by one 13-12. The Blue Streaks began to pull away by three, forcing the Red Devils to call a timeout at 17-14. An ace then kill by Hinkle would make the score 20-14. Astuffed block between Whittington and Cailyn Webb would add a point making the score 21-15. Another kill by Hinkle would add another point. With the Streaks within one point of stealing the second set Torres served an ace for the Devils keeping them alive 24-21. Asmart roll shot taken by Otaysha Smith would add another point 24-22, but a missed serve would end the Lady Streaks snap back, take Senior Night sweep Dan Hoehne/News-S un Jordan Hinkle came up big on Senior Night in helping the Streaks get past Avon Park. See SEBRING, B4 Dan Hoehne/News-S un The junior Blue Streak defense dodged some bullets and stayed strong throughout Thursday nights 8-7 win over Clewiston to close their season out undefeated for the second year in a row. By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comSEBRING One might c all it a junior varsity d ynasty as the Sebring JV f ootball team finished off t heir second straight undef eated season Thursday night w ith a grueling, 8-7 win over v isiting Clewiston. The Tigers came in with j ust one loss on the season t hemselves and would not m ake for an easy match. This is a big night for t hese kids, theyre part of s omething special here, h ead coach Dustin Woods s aid before the game. And i t wont be easy. These are t wo quality football teams g oing at it. But it was the junior Blue S treaks who jumped out quickly as, just over three minutes into the contest, running back Jalen Williams knifed through the line and broke into the open for a 45yard touchdown run. Quarterback Bobby Mathis then bulled into the end zone for what would turn out to be a crucial twopoint conversion. Clewiston then got their own drive going and were looking to match Sebrings score, but Jordan Acevedo stepped in front of a Tiger pass at the 11-yard line for an interception to thwart the threat. After trading possessions that moved the game into the second quarter, the Streaks faced a fourth down and set up to punt. But Clewiston broke through the protection, blocked the attempted boot and were able to corral the loose ball and take it 40 yards for a score. And while they matched Sebrings touchdown, for the extra point, the Tigers went more traditional and booted it through the uprights to narrow the gap to 8-7. The Streaks were able to dodge a couple bullets as Clewiston rode some big plays and seemed on the verge of scoring later in the period. They did reach the end zone on one play, in fact, but a penalty brought it back. Defensive back Wyatt Kinslow then halted the Junior Streaks stay unbeaten See STREAKS, B3 Paul Crate/News-Chief Blue Streak quarterback Jair Watson fires downfield Friday night, but the offense wouldnt be able to get much going in the 46-0 loss at Winter Haven. By HANNAH WALLER News-Sun correspondentCLEWISTON Dragons are fairy tales, a Clewiston sign read, proven false after the Friday night football game between the Lake Placid Dragons and the Clewiston Tigers. Although a final score of 46-3 in favor of the Tigers did little to prove this, the Dragons surely gave the Tigers a run for their money. Almost three minutes into the first quarter the Tigers crossed into the end zone with a touchdown by Lenorris Gaines, followed by an extra point kick by Brandon Torres. With a score of 7-0, it was the Dragonsturn to receive the kickoff, which Lake Placids Marquavein Copeland did and more. Copeland ran it back 55 yards and was barely stopped from running the leftover 45 yards by a Clewiston defender. Afumble a few plays later by the Dragons stopped their progressive run short, however. At the 3:37 mark of the first quarter the Tigers scored again when Derry West ran in the ball, making the score 14-0. The Tigers managed to squeeze in one more touchdown before the time ran out for the first quarter when Clewistons Tyrin Summers ran in a touchdown. With a 21-0 lead at the start of the second quarter, the Tigers switched to defense as the Dragons came in ready to score. Runs by Foster Walker and Copeland pushed the Tigers back bu t werent enough to make it to the end zone. After a punt by Eldon McKenzie, the Dragon defense came onto the field. Tackles by Malachi McLean, Nick Tuason, Tyler Farmer and Isaiah Velazquez put the pressure on the Tigers and resulted in an interce ption by the Dragons. Though they couldnt seem to reach the end zone, the Dragons Jorge Godinez kicked a field goal that finally put the Dragons on the scoreboard. Tigers too much for Dragons See DRAGONS, B4 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun fil es Alfred Brown ran for two scores and threw for another, but Avon Parks late comeback came up short Friday night. By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgAll season long, Avon Park head coach Wade Jackson has been looking for that spark. That big play that builds into another and soon becomes the norm, with wins following soon after. They didnt quite get there Friday night, but the Red Devils made some big steps in that direction as they fell just short against LaBelle, 31-28. Things didnt start off too well as a 12-yard gain on the Cowboys first play was extended by a horse collar penalty, and on the next play, running back Danny Robinson took it in from the 19 for a 7-0 lead. But the Devils quickly answered back and showed this was going to be a battle throughout. An 11-play drive was capped off by a one-yard Alfred Brown plunge at the 5:22 mark to tie it up after Brooks Whiddens extra point kick sailed true. LaBelle then stuck to Red Devil rally falls just short See DEVILS, B4 By BILLKEMP Ledger Media GroupWINTER HAVEN D efense wins championships b ut special teams had a big s ay in this one.

The Blue Devils had 14-0 l ead before their offense e ver stepped on the field, c ourtesy of 56-yard punt r eturn by Kendrick Holland a nd a 71-yard punt return by D Angelo Gaines after S ebrings offense was s tymied and forced to punt o n its first two possessions. Sebring went to punt a gain on its third possession b ut the snap sailed away f rom the punter and Winter H aven recovered on the Blue S treaks14-yard line. Two plays later, Mario Leonard scored on a 3-yard run to give Winter Haven a commanding 21-0 first quarter lead. We wanted to clinch district so we wanted to put the game away early, Holland said. It was crazy. We wanted to get another (punt return) and keep it going and keep our offense off the field the whole game. Winter Haven scored two more times in the second quarter on a 3-yard run by Holland and a 23-yard pass from Darian Mills to Darius James to take a 36-0 halftime lead and force a second-half running clock. Through it all, Winter Havens defense held Sebring to 97 yards of total offense and picked up the shutout. Defense is about a mindset, Winter Haven head W inter Haven sprints past Blue Streaks See LOSS, B4

But the rest of the points would all be scored by Sebring, with three kills between Samantha Allison and Webb finishing the match off with a Gotsch ace, 25-21. With districts coming up for both teams, moods have gone from fun to serious. One thing that both Whittington and Hinkle have expressed about their senior year is to bring home a district championship. Our girls had gotten really serious, and Ive been trying to get them to loosen up more, Sebring head coach Venessa Sinness said. We just need to be positive going into districts.

GRAVES Associated PressLOUISVILLE, Ky. Eighth-ranked Louisville couldnt believe how it let Central Florida slip from its grasp. Twice. Credit UCF quarterback Blake Bortles and the Knights for not giving up after falling behind, resolve that toppled Teddy Bridgewater and the Cardinals. Bortles threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Godfrey with 23 seconds remaining and the Knights stunned the Cardinals with a 38-35 victory on Friday night, ending Louisvilles perfect start. Much of the season remains for the Cardinals (6-1, 2-1) to fulfill their goal of winning the inaugural American Athletic Conference title before heading to the Atlantic Coast Conference next year. It will just involve chasing the Knights (5-1, 2-0) after coming unraveled in the second half. Our goals are still there and we still have a chance to win the conference, Louisville coach Charlie Strong said. Now, were one win behind them (UCF). Weve got to continue to play well and get better. We can improve. The Knights meanwhile are eager to see if things can get better after mounting two huge comebacks to beat the highest-ranked team they have ever faced. I said, Lets get some 2-minute calls ready, Bortles said. We knew we were going to have to go 2minute. ... Our offensive line did a great job and our receivers did a great job of getting yards after the catch. Down 28-7 midway through the third quarter, the Knights responded with three touchdowns in a 7:22 span. Storm Johnson had a 1-yard TD run and a 20yard reception for another score, and William Stanback ran 12 yards for the tying TD. UCF then went in front on Shawn Moffitts 34-yard field goal with 7:36 remaining. Louisville reclaimed the lead on Dominique Browns 15-yard run with three minutes to go, but the Knights drove 75 yards in 11 plays to take the lead for good on BortlesTD and then held off the Cardinalscomebac k attempt. Bridgewater made one last desperate heave into the end zone as time expired, but the Heisman Trophy contender was unable to find anyone. The Knights then rushed the field in jubilation as a sma ll gathering of fans in one section chanted UCF, UCF! What can you say? It was a heck of a game, Knights coach George OLeary said. Both teams played their hearts out. That was a great drive and it was a great win in a tough environment. Obviously, its a big win. Its a big win because of the conference. We had great effort and great execution. ... We could have hung our heads, but we go t after it. Bortles finished 21 of 32 passing for 250 yards and two touchdowns while Johnson rushed for 109 yards and a TD on 18 carries, leading a spirited comeback during which th e Knights outgained the Cardinals 269-210 in the second half to finish with a 446-445 edge.

Though tackles by Chase G riffin and McLean slowed t he Tigers somewhat, it wasn t enough to keep C lewistons Derrick Jackson f rom receiving a touchdown p ass at the 4:21 mark. After Lake Placid blocked the extra point kick attempt, the score sat at 40-3. Afumble in the fourth quarter by the Dragons temporarily delayed them before the DragonsRamon Galaviz-Rinald recovered a Clewiston fumble a few plays later. The Dragon offense forward procession was shortlived before the Dragons had to punt once again. The final score of the night came at 4:30 when Clewistons Tyrone Washington locked in the score at 46-3. The Dragons kept fighting until the last few seconds when quarterback Robert Walton connected with Alec Sassin, but the clock ran out before the Dragons could progress further. The Dragons will be traveling to Bishop Verot next Friday, and between then and now will be working on being more physical and not putting the ball on the ground as much, said quarterback Walton. Continued from B1 the ground for most of their next drive, with one eightyard pass play amid a 13play drive that bridged into the second quarter. Robinson again took it in for the score, this time from five yards out, to put the Cowboys up 14-7 with 9:22 left in the half. Avon Park went three-andout on their next series, but Josh Jones came up with a big interception to get the ball right back. Then, just three plays later, the Devils tied it up on a Lauer Lewis touchdown from the two. The teams traded possessions, but LaBelle got one more short drive in that resulted in a 31-yard field goal at the buzzer for a 17-14 lead at the half. The third quarter was all Cowboys as they looked to run away with it, scoring twice one a 22-yard Robinson run and an 82-yard burst up the middle by Jerome Baxter. Weve been working on our tackling and thought we had that taken care of, Jackson said. But were still too timid with our tackling. Down 31-14 into the fourth, Avon Park soon made things interesting. A10-play drive saw a mix of runs and passes, with Brown connecting for 16 and nine yards to freshman Moses Satine and Ahmaad Smith, respectively, before finding Satine again for a 12yard touchdown. This moved the score to 31-21 with 2:41 left, with the Devils then giving themselves a chance when they pounced on the ensuing onside kick. After a couple of incomplete passes and a 13-yard loss, Brown broke off runs o f 24 and 30 yards to bring it t o the Cowboy one. Brown then burst in with 51.8 seconds left to narrow the gap to 31-28. Another onside kick was tried, but the ball was ruled touched by Avon Park befor e it had gone the necessary 10 yards, giving the ball to LaBelle. Two kneel downs later an d the final seconds ticked off the clock to end the game. Were still getting down too much after a bad play or a turnover, Jackson said. They need to realize that th e big play happens on the nex t play. But I saw a lot of good things, a lot of guys had rea lly nice games and Im happy with the freshmen we brought up, they really contributed. Continued from B1 Devils take steps forward c oach Charlie Tate said. And its nice when you get a shutout so you can start p reaching that this is how y ou are supposed to play. G ood defenses win football g ames not great offenses. Its n ice to watch offense, but d efense wins. So it was nice f or those guys to build some c onfidence. Five miles away Lake G ibson beat Lake Region 52-0 to ensure the Blue Devils would win the district championship tie-breaker even if they lose to Lake Region on Nov. 1. I think we are getting healthy at the right time and I think our momentum is where it needs to be. And I think the rest will do us good. Tate said. Sebring looked pretty good on film and they had some wins stacked on top of wins. But I was pleased with the way our kids came out tonight and set a tone. Special teams jumped on them. For the Streaks, the loss drops them to 5-2 overall and 1-1 in district play, giving them a chance still to reach the playoffs. They will host Lely Friday for their own Homecoming game and then host Lake Gibson the following week, where a win would get them into postseason play. Continued from B1 Loss does not end playoff hopes d rive with an interception to k eep the slim lead protected. And it turned into a defens ive slugfest from that point o n, with Sebring turning b ack the Tigers time and a gain to keep their lead and u nblemished season intact. With their schedule now c omplete and the 8-0 record o ne for the books, many of t his standout squad will a ssuredly be called up to the v arsity level for the remaini ng three games to both h elp the varsity squad and g et themselves some valua ble experience for the comi ng seasons.

Penney is opening its doors on Thanksgiving evening to kick off the holiday shopping season, as the beleaguered retailer hopes to get back in the game for the crucial selling period. The Plano, Texas-based chain will open most of its 1,100 stores at 8 p.m. on the holiday, the same as rival Macys, and will be open 25 hours straight, closing at 9 p.m. the following day. The Thanksgiving evening opening is much earlier than last year, when Penney didnt open until 6 a.m. Friday. That made the retailer one of the laggards for the unofficial kickoff to the season. Penney is also bringing back a tradition it ditched last year: It will give away nearly 2 million holiday snow globes starting at 4 a.m. on the Friday after the turkey feast. Obviously, we were one of the last to open (last year), said Tony Bartlett, Penneys executive vice president of stores. But he noted this year, Were all in. He promised that Penneys deals will be at least as good as two years ago and will be much better than last year, when Penney gave away buttons tied to a prize giveaway. Penney is also hiring at least 35,000 seasonal work ers for the holidays, nearly 50 percent more than a year ago. The holiday plan is ye t another example of how Penney is unraveling the strategies of its former CEO Ron Johnson, who was ous ted in April after 17 months on the job amid a botched up plan to reinvent the retailer. Johnson was fired two months after the comp any announced horrific fourth-quarter results that covered the holiday shopping season. That ended a fiscal year n which the Penney amassed almost a billion dollars. J.C. Penney to open on Thanksgiving day By MICHAELLIEDTKE APBusiness WriterSAN FRANCISCO H eres a new twist on fantas y sports: a San Francisco s tartup is offering a chance t o bet on the moneymaking p otential of star athletes. The unusual investment o pportunity kicked off T hursday with an IPO filing p roposing to sell stock for a s take in the future income of t he Houston TexansArian F oster, a top running back in t he National Football L eague. The initial public offering h inges on a deal requiring F antex Holdings Inc. to pay F oster $10 million in return f or a 20 percent share of his remaining contract with the Texans, his endorsement income and any other future money tied to his football career. Those earnings could include potential broadcasting jobs that Foster gets after his playing career is over. It doesnt include money Foster would make if he pursues a career unrelated to football. Fantex plans to sell about 1 million shares at $10 apiece to pay Foster and cover other expenses. The tracking stock wont trade on a major stock exchange; instead, it will be bought and sold on a trading platform set up by Fantex, which was co-founded last year by Silicon Valley entrepreneur Buck French. Foster, who is in his fifth season with the Texans, is just the first player in what Fantex hopes will become a diversified line-up of star athletes. Foster declined to comment citing Securities and Exchange Commission regulations. The company is aiming to do IPOs featuring players in professional baseball, basketball, hockey and golf, as well. Our philosophy is to work with people who we believe have interesting brand attributes that we can work with and they can work with us, said French. IPO to give investors a stake in NFL running back
By J.M. HIRSCH APFood EditorNEWYORK Talk about a n unlikely recipe for success a cable network dedicated t o... food? It may not seem even a litt le preposterous today, but w hen Food Network l aunched 20 years ago A merica was sitting at a very d ifferent dinner table. After a ll, this was before wed l earned to fetishize cupcakes, b efore Instagram made our e very mouthful a shared e xperience, before vegetables h ad cult followings. And yet this backwater n etwork launched, plunking c ameras in front of chefs m any of them truly not ready f or prime time and hoping f or the best. The gamble paid off. Two d ecades on, the Food N etwork has morphed b eyond a television station t hat teaches us how to cook ( more about that in a m oment). It has become a l ifestyle, a marketing behem oth turning chefs and h ome cooks into househ old names even, if not espec ially, with people who never c ook. It surprised me at first. B ut I think now, it doesnt s urprise me, longtime netw ork star Bobby Flay said T hursday at a party to celeb rate the 20-year milestone d uring the New York Wine a nd Food Festival. When the network l aunched, Americans didnt t ake food seriously. Less than a decade later, a culinary a wakening fueled in part b y the network itself a llowed Food Network to s ucceed, Flay said. Food Network didnt i nvent the food celebrity t he fame of James Beard, J ulia Child and others predate i t by decades but it codif ied it into an industry. And it d id so with such efficiency, s pawning the likes of Flay, R achael Ray, Tyler Florence a nd Emeril Lagasse, that o ther networks were left s crambling. In many ways, the network w as in the right place at the r ight time. To Giada De Laurentiis, star of Giada at Home among other shows, the right time was 9/11 and the nesting instinct it triggered in so many Americans. I truly believe my success is because of 9/11. Had it not been for 9/11, I dont know that I would be here, she said. Today, of course, food television is a crowded field. Bravo helped redefine the reality segment with Top Chef and its various spinoffs. Gordon Ramsay spouts fire on Fox. ABC gave food a golden hour of daytime chat with The Chew. Even CNN and Travel Channel have pulled up a chair, snatching up Food Network alum Anthony Bourdain. Still, Food Network one of many lifestyle brands owned by Scripps Networks Interactive touts enviable numbers, reaching some 100 million U.S. households, never mind programming in more than 150 countries around the world. It has its own magazine, its own lines of cookware and kitchen gear. Want Food Network wine or tablecloths? Theres a product for that. Of course, thats broad strokes history. Theres also plenty in those 20 years the network would rather forget. Paula Deen (conspicuously absent from the party) speaking her mind, anyone? Or not minding her diabetes. And theres Robert Irvines little resume flub (the Dinner: Impossible star was fired for fabricating some of the more fantastic parts of his resume, but later returned with Restaurant: Impossible). Meanwhile, lower-tier talent love to grumble about stranglehold contracts that give the network near complete control over budding careers. And then theres the profitability algorithm, which goes something like: less cooking equals more viewers and sizzling ad dollars. It actually took years for the network to get profitable. And many say it did so by turning its back on some if its own fans and stars. In those early red ink years, the network was known mostly for food television with a how-to attitude aimed at people who cook. But on television, personality trumps talent, entertainment trounces know-how. That spelled the demise of shows with chefs offering teachable moments at the stove. To Irvine, it was a smart and necessary choice. Weve all got choices now. And our choices are very, very different from what they were 10 years ago, 20 years ago, he said. The television world has become so cutthroat, theyve got to continue coming up with better programing. So shows like Sara Moultons easy paced Cooking Live gave way to frenetic competitions like Iron Chef, Chopped and Rachael vs. Guy. The switch from chefs to personalities, from information to entertainment, got ratings and advertisers, but triggered an MTV-style backlash. Just as the music network was ridiculed for letting videos die, Food Network was ribbed for favoring reality TVover real cooking. Bourdain practically launched his post-Food Network career by bashing it as well as some of its less pedigreed stars. In response, much as MTV launched sister networks to recover its lost ground, Food Network in 2010 created The Cooking Channel, a back-tobasics, edgier sibling. What about the next 20 years? Its hard to imagine Americans tuning out foodas-entertainment. But that doesnt mean Food Network gets an easy ride. Some of their biggest properties are feeling stale, have been shown the door (Lagasse, for example), or in Deens case simply imploded on their own. Meanwhile, Food Network hasnt launched a major celebrity since Guy Fieri won The Next Food Network Star in 2006, a lifetime ago in TVyears. I think that Food Network is trying desperately to evolve, said De Laurentiis. They cannot stay the same. There is so much competition that there wasnt 20 years ago when they started.

One at a time, dunk each apple into the candy melts, spooning it up the sides and over the top for an even coating. Set the coated apples upright on a sheet of waxed paper to set. Meanwhile, use a rolling pin to roll out Tootsie Rolls until flat. Use a paring knife to cut round eyes and a heart-shaped nose from the flattened Tootsie Rolls. Glue the eyes and nose (mount the heart upside down) to the apples using piping gel or a bit of purchased frosting.Doughnut spiderSet a chocolate glazed doughnut in the center of a large serving platter. Place a chocolate cake doughnut up against it. The glazed doughnut forms the spiders body; the cake doughnut is the head. Place 2 chocolate doughnut holes on top of the cake doughnut to form eyes (use a dab of frosting to hold them in place). Top each doughnut hole with a dab of white or yellow frosting, then gently press a chocolate chip into each. For the legs, arrange three sets of three chocolate doughnut holes coming off of each side of the body doughnut. If desired, additional frosting can be used to keep the leg doughnut holes in place.Vampire doughnutsMake a stack of honeyglazed doughnuts on a large serving tray.

By DERRIK J. LANG APEntertainment WriterLOS ANGELES His n ame is Riley. Unlike his squad mates in t he next installment of the r abidly popular Call of D uty series, hes not adept a t sniping enemy combatants o r piloting drones. He cant e ven pick up a gun. Call of Duty: Ghosts i snt due until November, but R iley has already become the b reakout star of the military s hoot-em-up. He even has an u nofficial Twitter account @ CollarDuty. Yup, Riley is a dog, and h es one of the largest and m ost popular technological l eaps forward in the next g eneration of Call of Duty. After footage released earl ier this year revealed that Ghosts would feature a f our-legged soldier, the I nternet uniformly wagged its t ail in anticipation. The mere t ease of a canine character i nspired fan art, doggy cosp lay and the unofficial T witter account, which has a ttracted over 28,000 followe rs. Ghosts executive prod ucer Mark Rubin said duri ng a recent visit to developer I nfinity Wards offices that t he German Shepherd origin ated as an idea on a notec ard during a brainstorming s ession. The developers didn t actually know anything a bout military service dogs, j ust that unleashing one on t he Activision Blizzard Inc. f ranchise was a cool idea. Call of Duty fans d rooled over Riley again last m onth when a new trailer r eleased for Ghosts feat ured him lunging at a helic opter, taking a bite out of t he human pilot and bringing t he chopper whirling down to t he ground. As Rileys fame u nexpectedly surged online, R ubin said the developers i nclination was to let the g ame go to the dog. There was a risk of shoeh orning the dog into scenes w here he wasnt originally g oing to be, he said. Fortunately, that only lasted f or a few weeks and everyb ody got back to concentrati ng on making the game. Its g reat that Riley is so popular, b ut lets focus on the game. L ets have Riley make sense a nd not just put him in space o r in a scuba suit. While canine companions h ave been featured in many g ames from Fable II to Grand Theft Auto V the d evelopers of Ghosts set o ut to create more than a nother best friend. They w anted a hero, a dog that w ould not only assist players b ut could be commanded at c ertain points throughout b oth the singleand multip layer modes. In the game, Riley is outfitted with several gadgets based on technology employed by his real-world counterparts. For players, Rileys battlefield perspective can be glimpsed through a camera mounted to the back of his tactical suit, and he can receive orders, such as creating distractions or taking down enemies, issued from afar by players. To make Riley as believable as possible, the gamemakers first met with a retired Navy SEALand his former military service dog to learn more about how soldiers and hounds work together. They later cast a pair of pooches, a German Shepherd named Ruger and a smaller Belgian Malinois called Rico, to be digitally captured for the game. We had several mo-cap (motion-capture) shoots, and some of them we just had to write off as learning experiences, said Ghosts lead animator Zach Volker. Ruger and Rico were outfitted with custom motioncapture gear made from form-fitting suits intended for dogs with skin conditions. Neversoft mo-cap supervisor Kristina Adelmeyer said they originally wore special booties on their paws so dozens of cameras could film their range of motion. However, they didnt act natural in their fancy footwear. We ended up using these pieces of tape that the mocap system could see as markers, said Adelmeyer. Rico provided the biting and tackling, while Ruger performed the movements. Chris Connell, Rugers trainer, said during a demonstration of his abilities at Neversoft earlier this month that the biggest challenge for the Schutzhund competition champion thats German for protection dog was playing make-believe. In this environment, we didnt have trees or grass, said Connell. It was like, OK, Ruger. Pretend were in a desert area and act accordingly.Ruger is like, Dude, this is a studio with mats like people do exercises on at the gym, and theres white lines on the ground.Just trying to get him to act as if it was a real environment was the hardest thing.

DearAbby: I have two sisters and three brothers, ranging in age from 52 to 69. All of us except one are comfortable financially. The exception is our brother Jerry, who is homeless. He lives in a park and does odd jobs. He owes money for old student loans and probably back taxes, so hes hesitant about finding a real job and having to fill out a W-4 form. I believe he uses alcohol and marijuana, but not often. I am the only family member who is in contact with him, and I give him money occasionally. The others may not be aware of how bad his living situation is. I have no room for him in my house because my adult daughter and grandson moved in. We are not a close family, although we have no animosity. Should I send an email or letter to my siblings about our brother? Should I ask for suggestions on how to help him? How should it be worded? Sensitive Sis in California DearSensitive Sis: The answer to both questions is yes. Your message doesnt have to be long or fancy. If I were writing it, I would put it this way: Are you aware that our brother Jerry is homeless, living in a park and surviving on odd jobs? This is a disgrace to our family. Do you have any suggestions about how to help our brother? People who live on the streets (or in parks) usually have more problems than unpaid student loans and back taxes. There is often a significant mental health or substance abuse issue. My suggestion would be to involve a social worker in steering your brother toward the help he needs to get his life back. If there is money involved, wouldn't it be more wisely spent that way? DearAbby: I am a senior citizen and an above-theknee amputee. I wear a fullleg prosthesis and use crutches. I love being out and about, going to theaters, restaurants, outdoor markets, etc. How should I respond to the many people who ask me what happened? Did I break my ankle, have knee surgery or what? I know telling them the truth would embarrass them. Abby, please ask your readers to think twice before asking a stranger such a personal question. Amputee in New Jersey DearAmputee: OK, Ill try. Readers, I have advised many times that you not ask strangers personal questions, and this is yet another example. Now that I have repeated that advice, Ill offer some to you: Please do not worry about embarrassing the questioner. Feel free to tell the truth if you wish. It might teach the person a needed lesson when he or she gets more information than was bargained for. However, if you dont want to divulge, all you have to say is, Thats very personal, and Id prefer not to discuss it. DearAbby: Im getting married next year, and in my excitement, I asked four of my good friends to be my bridesmaids. As the date grows closer, I am realizing just how much a wedding really costs. Would it be wrong for me to change my mind about having bridesmaids? The girls havent paid for anything yet or wasted any time during the planning process. Please help me. I dont want to hurt anyones feelings, but I cant afford to have a wedding party. Southern Belle DearSouthern Belle: Contact your good friends individually and explain the situation just as you have explained it to me. Once they understand that financial constraints prevent you from having the wedding you fantasized about, none of them should feel slighted that you need to scale back. Frankly, I commend you on your good judgment in recognizing this now. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, aka Jeanne Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

We reach them in lots of ways. Where to go to college when accepted at more than one? Where to live and settle when two equally good possibilities are available? Is a business opportunity right for you? You waver wondering if you should jump in, take the risk or stay with the status quo. You need wisdom. Proverbs has a lot to say about wisdom as does the book of James in the Bible. In Proverbs 2 2, NKJV were reminded, Incline your ear to wisdom and apply your heart to understanding. In Proverbs 4:11 we are shown two paths and two outcomes. The writer says, I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths.When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble. Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; keep her, for she is your life. The verses that follow warn against the path of the wicked, of evil and we are told in verse 15, Avoid it, do not travel on it; turn away from it and pass on. It seems that in reading these verses, we see that the end of wisdom brings practical benefits. In fact, wisdom is often referred to as skillful living or truth applied. Life works best when we observe the outcomes of choices and stay away from negative paths. But what about a choice where there is no obvious negative path? Perhaps God is asking us to exercise freedom of choice while trusting him to clear the way or close the door. Whether a clear choice between right and wrong or between two rights,if w e only look to outcomes its like opening the last page of a book and seeing the end of wisdom. We must remember Proverbs 1:7, The fear of the Lord is th e beginning of knowledge. Ahealthy fear or reverence of God, for God and about God matters even more than the outcome or end of wisdom. It speaks of our relationship with our Creator and our desire to please him, factoring him into every decision. So when we seek who God is with awe and won der, we will come away with inspired thinking (wisdom).James 3:17 says, But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. So remember the beginning of wisdom if you wa nt a godly, beneficial end. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.
