By SAMANTHAGHOLAR samantha.gholar@newssun.comSEBRING Apink flag waves in t he wind just below Old Glory at S ebring Middle School. Unlike most p ink seen during the month of O ctober, its not for breast cancer a wareness, but it is for something j ust as important. SMS has joined an international c ampaign against bullying known as S tand Up to Bullying. The special e vent will take place today in more t han 3,100 schools in the United S tates and 25 different countries. O ver one million people have signed t he anti-bullying Stand Up pledge, w hich reassures students, friends and peers that bullying will not be tolerated. SMS Language Arts instructor Courtney Germaine was the first person to bring up the campaign at the school and has worked hard to not only get her students to sign the antibullying pledge, but to also inform students about the results of bullying. Wednesday morning, sixth and seventh graders entered Germaines classroom with only one topic up for discussion: bullying. Written on the board as the students entered the classroom was their daily guiding question. Germaine asked her students all the same question. Why do bullies bully and what ramifications does bullying have for victims? Germaine asked. Students quickly began writing their thoughts and picking apart the topic.

The most recent was Tuesday night was the I Maze store at 4 U.S. 27, which was robbed at gunpoint at approximately 9 p.m., according to Sheriff Susan Benton. There were no injuries and the suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of cash according to Sheriffs Office reports. Benton said the clerk didnt call the HCSO immediat ely, but first called the owner who sent a representative to the store before reporting the crime to the Highlands County Sheriffs Office. So it was almost a 30minute delay before we got there, Benton said. We even put a dog on the groun d and the dog tracked for several blocks, but without any solid information that (track ) could have been a customer .

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the bus was stopped with its lights flashing and stop signs extended in the eastbound lane of State Road 62 at 7:23 a.m. when 69-year-old Louis Edward Stephenson of Bowling Green was driving east in his 2000 Ford F-250 truck. Stephenson told deputies he didnt realize the flashing lights were on a school bus, instead thinking they were the red flashing traffic control lights at the intersection of S.R. 62 and U.S. 17. By the time he realized there w as a bus stopped in his path, it was too late to stop. Stephenson took evasive action and swerved to the right to avoid a collision, bu t when he drove onto the shoulder he hit three children who were in the process of getting on the bus. Caylin Morgan Skipper, 9, was critically injured and airlifted to Tampa General hospital. Savannah Keishawna Williams, 6, and Alexis Albivter-Martinez, 8, suffer ed minor injuries and were transported to Florida Hospital-Wauchula. Stephenson was cited for failure to stop for a school bus.

Saturday, Nov. 2 on Oak A venue at Interlake B oulevard. All events are f ree. The so-called bicycle rodeo resembles more of a street festival than a series of exercises designed to raise young ridersawareness of safety on the road. Volunteers will be on hand cooking free hot dogs and offering snacks and drinks. They will also be fitting participants with a free bicycle helmet donated by the Florida Department of Transportation, and handing out free bags of goodies donated by area merchants supporting the event. The clinic is a response to the fact that Florida leads the nation in bicycle-related deaths. Police department organizers hope this fun and educational street festival will help reduce the risk of children from getting hurt while operating their bicycles on local streets. Participants will learn the importance of learning and following the rules of the road even as they develop better riding habits. Families whose children do not own bicycles are encouraged to take part. The police department offers a full fleet of child-sized loaner bikes suitable for children of all ages, thanks to a state DOT grant. Volunteers handing out helmets have been trained by the Florida Bicycle Association to properly fit helmets to ensure the helmets do their job in case of a fall. The volunteers can also adjust fittings for children who already own helmets. The event is made possible by more than two dozen volunteers who will be on hand running the event, as well as the donations of food, mater ials and cash donated by the community. Anyone with questions ca n contact LPPD Officer Heather Mulligan at 6993758, or any on-duty officer Pre-registration forms are now available in the front lobby of the police department.

Unless the problems can b e fixed soon, they threaten t o undermine the ability of t he health care exchanges to h elp enroll some seven mill ion uninsured Americans in 2 014. The administration created t he Web site so the buck n ecessarily stops with high o fficials Kathleen S ebelius, the secretary of h ealth and human services, a nd President Obama hims elf who allowed this to h appen. The administration a ttributes the problems partl y to unexpectedly high d emand from people eager to c ompare insurance policies a vailable in their states and p artly to technical glitches t hat blocked or slowed peop le from submitting applicat ions and erroneous data b eing sent to insurers. Why t he administration failed to a nticipate the high demand h as never been explained. N or has it clearly explained t he nature of the technical problems or who in government or among the private contractors is primarily responsible for them. The problems with the site have frustrated millions of people trying to get information and coverage. In response, the administration has put forward a two-part approach to coping with Web site failures. It has added information technology experts from inside and outside the government to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week to try to overcome the technical glitches. Second, it has expanded and publicized alternative ways to find out about health plans and costs like increased staffing at call centers that will help people enroll by phone at all hours of day and night, counselors (called navigators) in each state who will help people enroll in person, and applications that can be downloaded and mailed in. Mr. Obama also made this important pledge to all consumers who tried to apply through the federal Web site and got stuck somewhere in the process: In the coming weeks, we will contact you directly, personally to recommend how to complete the application, shop for coverage and pick a suitable plan. Its now up to his office to make good on these promises, and there is no reason to believe it cant be done. The health exchanges in several states appear to be working better than the federal site. And even with the federal sites problems, some halfmillion Americans have successfully submitted applications through state and federal exchanges, the first step in the enrollment process. Many Congressional Republicans are eager to exploit the start-up problems as evidence that health care reform is doomed to failure and ought to be delayed. They ignore the fact that Republican-led states contributed to the start-up problems by refusing to set up their own exchanges and dumping the task on the federal government. Even so, carrying out the law and making the technology work is the responsibility of the administration as are the swift repairs required to ensure that millions can actually sign up for the coverage they need.

Editorial & Opinion Page A4 News-SunFriday, October 25, 2013 President has to make good on Obamacare fix promises P resident Obama rightly acknowledged on Monday that there is no excuse for the horrendously botched opening o f the federal Web site consumers are supp osed to use to sign up for health insurance p olicies under the Affordable Care Act. V eterans are only ones to make sense E ditor: Well folks, the 535 crooks i n Washington have done it t o us again. Another fabric ated disaster, a shutdown g overnment (only 17 perc ent) and a promise to do it a gain in January. We have g one through the sequester, f iscal crises, and now shutd own. Can they come up w ith a new name in January? The graft and corruption i n Washington is so vast that t he average voter has no idea w hat is happening. The lobb yists control the money and t he politicians do as they are t old. Dont believe for a m inute that your call to your c ongressman is going to h ave any effect on their vote. T hose 535 crooks have mana ged to get lifetime jobs w ith all the perks because t he American voter is either 1 ) dumb, 2) lazy, or 3) one o f those on the government h andouts that are breaking t he backs of the working p eople. The latest poll shows 74 p ercent of Americans want t he government to change, h owever the same polls s how that during the last e lection 91 percent of House m embers and 90 percent of S enators were re-elected. D ictatorships usually range i n the 90-95 percent range. The name calling in W ashington borders on a m iddle school election for c lass president. Incidentally, while talking a bout the President, Obama i s the most arrogant presid ent that I can recall and I h ave been around for 12 p residents with 17 terms. T he man constantly refers to h is election mandate 23 of 5 0 states is not a mandate; 5 1 percent to 49 percent of t he popular vote is not a m andate. If half of the count ry doesnt like your polic ies, I would think he might b e a little more humble. Folks, Ive said it before a nd Ill say again, term limi ts is the only way to shake u p that crowd up there in D .C. As a final comment, how d o you get furloughed for 16 d ays and then get all your b ack pay? Isnt that like a 16-day paid vacation? The only people that made sense in this whole debacle were the World War II veterans that tore down the barriers around the WWII memorial. They tore down Hitlers Atlantic wall; those iron gates were childs play. Stay tuned for round two in January. Hal Graves SebringWhat is next?Editor: As of April this year there were 804,420 veterans claims denied, delayed or pending. There were 570,598 pending over 125-plus days. The percent of claims over 125 days is 70.9 percent. In 2009 $537,000,000 was spent on a new computer system to eliminate the backlog/claims issues. As of September 2012, 19,500 veterans died waiting for their claims to be paid. And now comes The Affodable Care Act. All of your health care history will now be on computers at Health & Human Services. All of your medical expense history will now be on computers at the Internal Revenue Service. Aclick on a computer at Social Administration can identify all citizens over 65 years old. Aclick on a computer at HHS and IRS can identify the over-65-year-olds using the most services and accumulating the higher expenses. Will citizens(over 65) medical procedures be delayed, denied while those that are waiting die? This does two things immediately eliminate social security payments and stop payments on any future medical expenses. Before you dismiss this possibility, did the IRS delay or deny groups and organizations their legal tax exempt status? Has the NSAread your e-mails, listened to your phone calls, looked at your financial transactions? Has this administration stopped or restricted religious services in the military? Was increased security at embassies before 9/11/12 denied? Were reinforcements denied to those defending the embassy at Benghazi? Are statesrights being denied while trying to enact voter I.D. laws? Were guns given by this administration to gangs in Mexico that killed an American agent? Have natural resources been denied the citizens while doubling the cost of fuel for their vehicles? These are a few of the many, many questions you should be asking about your future under the Affordable Care Act. John Larsen SebringLegal system still heavily flawedEditor: Pity the poor person who does not have friends in high places to influence the judge. It is amazing to see what a local car dealer, a county commissioner, a bank president and a city administrator can do to get a person freed from the legal consequences of his own choices/actions. But, tragically, this is not the first of a kind. Our legal system is the best in the world, but still heavily flawed. It doesnt take a Solomon to see that money is a big factor in justice being handed out. It is very obvious that a person represented by a public defender is at a great disadvantage over one being represented by a street lawyer, i.e. private and paid. Frank Parker Sebring Is Americas center rising again? It certainly seems that way. After months of looking as if it was being prepared for embalming by a political mortician, several things have happened. American voters, the Republican establishment and Wall Street got a harrowing glimpse of how the Republican far right was ready to willingly shove the United States over political and fiscal cliffs in the government shutdown and debt default crisis. So now Americas mainstream has started to make known its ire and willingness to inflict consequences on ideologists. Meanwhile, a certain New Jersey Governor who refuses to march lockstep with the Tea Party and their enablers made a shift that confirms the centers influence. Whether its called the might middle (by centrists, moderates and independents) or the mushy middle (by Republican conservatives and by Democratic liberals who now call themselves progressives, which is like used cars being called pre-owned cars), a new NBC News/ Esquire poll found 51 percent of Americans in the middle. NBC News notes its a 21st century work in progress: Yes, the center is mostly white (78 percent) but so is most of the American voting public (72 percent) and the center is changing. Already it contains a fifth of African-American voters, one in two Latino voters, and half the women in America. The center is roomy, or in other words, welcoming. Far-right conservatives seem to be actively working to alienate these groups. More NBC: Among the middle groups, 64 percent are in favor of same-sex marriage and 67 percent want to see a federal minimum wage hike. Sixty three percent believe women in their first trimester should have the right to an abortion and 52 percent believe marijuana should be legalized. Of those responding, 54 percent of the middle say the government needs to maintain public assistance programs. In other words, the opposite of what Tea Partiers advocate. Poll after poll shows Republicans reaping political sewage from the shutdown. ACNN/ORC International poll found that more than half of Americans now feel Republican control of the House is bad. Anew ABC/Washington Post poll finds that only 20 percent think Republicans are interested in doing whats best for the country. While experts such as The National Journals Charlie Cook still say Democrats retaking the Hou se in 2014 is a lon g shot, the unimag inable is now imaginable. The Tea Party s poster boy is shu tdown fiasco arch itect Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, the embodiment of Rush Limbaughs ideological dreams, a kind of Sarah Palin 2.0, a first-ter mer threatening to politica lly take out fellow Republican Senators who dont agree with him. Humorist Andy Borowitz s tweet underscores how Cruz and the Tea Party are outside Americas mainstream: BREAKING: Bipartisan Effort in Senate to Avoid Making Eye Contact with Ted Cruz. Meanwhile, an open Republican civil war has begun as traditional conse rvatives vow to remain silent no more. As Tea Partiers have announced that theyll work to defeat GOPers who voted to lift the shutdown, such as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, Republican donors unhapp y with Tea Partiers are with holding checks -and som e Wall Street linked groups will reportedly work to defeat Tea Partiers. Meanwhile, in New Jersey, Governor Chris Christie, who is heading t o a landslide re-election, ou traged social conservatives by dropping the states opposition to same sex marriage. It was an acknowledgement of the reality where the country is on the issue -and Christi e does reality-based politics Christie is loathed by T ea Partiers, many Internet co nservatives and the conservative talkers, but is he a GOPnominee in waiting? The Weeks Marc Ambind er calls Christie the leading edge of politics, the most broadly acceptable captain of a change movement tha t the Republican Party can embrace. That makes him the de facto leader of red state America, even if its not willing to accept him just yet. The old saying all goo d things come to those who wait may not be accurate All signs now point to Americas political center not waiting to give a thumbs down on Tea Party Republicanism. The question is whether the Republican Party can halt the Tea Partierscrusade t o weed out non-Tea Partiers and take the party over before Americas voters an d The Might Middle give a thumbs down to the GOP.

Call 314-9876 By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING There was an e mpty chair at the Highlands C ounty commission meeting T uesday evening as chairman J ack Richie took time off to r ecover from a procedure d one at Florida Hospital H eartland Medical Center. Commissioner Don Elwell m ade the announcement after b eing queried about the c hairmans absence from the r egular nightly session. Im doing great, they let m e go yesterday, Richie said f rom his home in a telephone i nterview Wednesday. Everything went well. The procedure is called a c arotid endarterectomy. It is a c ommonly performed surgic al treatment designed to r emove plaque within the c arotid artery (the artery that s upplies blood to the brain). Richie said his condition was discovered several weeks ago during a routine checkup. The doctor ordered an ultrasound because he heard something he didnt like, Richie said. They wanted me to go in last week but I had to be up in Gainesville. Richie was there to attend a mandatory class as part of the Advanced County Commissioner education program. Known as The Florida Forum for County Leaders, it is an advanced leadership program designed for graduates of the Certified County Commissioners program. The course is limited each year to 30 CCC graduates. Richie said that all things considered, he did not suffer much in the way of discomfort and did allow that the surgical procedure may well have provided him with a costume for Halloween. They cut your neck and stitch you back up, so I could go as Frankenstein, he said with a laugh. During his recovery, Richies daughter is in town to look after him. Shes tough. Shes a school teacher, so you figure it out, he said. Richie said he was unsure when he might be back on the commission dais. They told me to use my common sense and to see how I feel. Im just going to take it as it comes and see how the recovery goes, he said. Aspecial meeting for the commission has been scheduled for next Tuesday morning to deal with budget adjustments for the countys constitutional officers. Richie recovering from surgery Community Briefs By PHILATTINGER phil.attinger@newssun.comSEBRING Anthony Tony Odierno went to pick up his 2012 Lincoln MKT Wednesday after getting oil changed and tires rotated, as part of regular service. At 11:30 a.m., he was waiting to leave the parking lot at Alan Jay Ford Lincoln in Sebring. He never made it out of the lot, and his car is now back in the service center with front-end damage. Awreck on U.S. 27 sent a Ford F150 pickup spinning into the front of his car, crunching the grille. No one was seriously injured in the wreck, although the driver of the pickup Jeffrey Asher, 57, of Lake Placid was taken to a local hospital as a precaution, said Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr. At 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Asher was northbound on U.S. 27 and turned left into the dealership in the path of a southbound crimson Nissan sedan driven by Margarete Kaiser, 85, of Sebring, said Carr. The impact flipped the truck into the grille Odiernos car and sent the Nissan into a spin. It stopped on the shoulder just south of the entrance, facing north. Officer Brandon Low as well as other officers were on scene investigating the wreck until approximately 12:30 p.m. Sebring Fire Rescue also responded to the wreck, which backed up southboun d traffic to Alternate 27 and forced some motorists to detour onto DeSoto Road. Carr said Asher would face a citation for violation of the right of way.

By PHILATTINGER phil.attinger@newssun.comAVON PARK Its been a year since Avon Park contracted with Sheriff Susan Benton for city law enforcement. Now she is opening the doors from 4-6 p.m. Thursday at the Sheriffs Office North District Substation at 304 W. Pleasant St., Avon Park. Its an opportunity for the Sheriffs Office to show its capabilities to the Avon Park community through demonstrations by the Sheriffs Office K-9 unit, the Special Weapons and Tactics Team (SWAT), the Crisis Negotiation Team and other agency support equipment. Deputies and civilian staff will also be on hand to answer any questions people may have, said Nell Hays, public information officer. She said anyone who wants to view the K-9 demonstrations should get there between 4:30-5:30 p.m. Despite the event falling on Halloween night, Oct. 31, Hays said the open house wasnt planned to have any connection to the holiday or trick-or-treating, especially since trick-ortreating is set for Saturday. It just happened to be the best night available to schedule all Sheriffs Office departments. Public safety, already a topic of discussion among Avon Park City Council candidates, has taken on a new concern with a convenience store robbery on Tuesday, the fourth such robbery in just more than two months. Benton said the city has seen 31 percent more calls for service in the 2013 fiscal year when her agency covered Avon Park than in the previous fiscal year when the city still had a full police department. She doesnt believe that crime is actually up, but instead people trust their law enforcement agency. For me, it shows peoples confidence because someone will come, Benton said. The same is true of child abuse and sex crimes, because without confidence in system, (people) dont call. Benton also said that her Alpha 2 and Alpha 3 zones the areas covering Avon Park always have a deputy and can draw on deputies immediately outside those zones if needed. They have more people available than they did whe n had full-time police department, Benton said. Plus, Benton said, her agency is reporting crime statistics thoroughly, which she believes was not done as well before the change. HCSO hosting open house in AP

Ive p ulled articles about people who w ere bullies and who have been b ullied so we have both perspect ives, Germaine said. Weve d iscussed Rebecca Ann Sedwick, t he girl from Lakeland, in the seve nthand eighth-grade classes. T omorrow, we will have a round t able discussion about how bullyi ng affects them and others. Germaine said that the discuss ion about 12-year-old Sedwick, w ho killed herself in September a fter months of being bullied, hit c lose to home for many of her s tudents and she has noticed a lot o f talk regarding the incident. Alot of them admitted that t hey used to be bullies or had bull ied before because of this, G ermaine said. The story was sad. She was g etting death threats, said sixthg rader Willis McGuire. Its mean a nd cruel. If I knew it was happ ening to someone I think Id s peak up and tell a trusted adult. SMS Guidance Counselor D onna Foster has jumped on b oard with the Stand Up camp aign in hopes of bringing a deepe r understanding of bullying to t he school. Foster purchased nearl y 100 of the light pink shirts for t he Stand Up to Bullying pledge d ay out of her own pocket. The pink shirts are a symbol of r espect and acceptance introduced b y Travis Price and David S hepherd, two former students at C entral Kings High School in C ambridge, Nova Scotia, who i ntervened when a new freshmen s tudent was being bullied for w earing a pink shirt on his first d ay at the new school. Price and Sheperd returned to s chool the following day with s everal pink shirts and handed t hem out to seniors to wear to s how their support for the bullied student, according to I was really nervous at first that the students wouldnt take a big interest in this, but its better than I thought. They are really engaged and active, its going great, Foster said. On the front of the shirts, two words Stood Up are printed in big, block letters. The backs of the shirts are labeled with the stand up pledge and read: Today I have an obligation no longer will I be silent if you need help. Silence is participation. I refuse to participate in the problem. Were all different, but we deserve respect. If you need help, come to me. If I think you need help, Im getting involved. I Got Your Back. Seventh-grade girls Camryn Lee and Chyenne Short have both dealt with bullying first hand and shared their experiences and their friendsexperiences during the reading activity. In fifth grade there was a kid that said I wasnt cute enough to ever get a boyfriend, Short said. I told my dad. My dad tells me things to say to bullies whenever they start to bother me. Lee spoke of a friend at her last school who tried to hurt herself after being bullied constantly. I had a friend last year in sixth grade, she almost killed herself. She tried cutting herself. She had to stay in the hospital a couple of weeks. People would always make up stories about her. I told them to leave her alone all the time but she didnt want me to get involved because I guess she was afraid more people would bully her, Lee said. Lee said her friend was eventually removed from their previous school and has been doing better. I havent talked to her in a couple weeks. I usually call her on the phone. When I came to the new school I had someone look after her. I told them to make sure no one bullies her, Lee said. SMS students will don their pink anti-bullying shirts and hand-made buttons today to show their support for all those who have been bullied and to demonstrate that SMS has no tolerance for bullies. SMS, along with all of Highlands County schools, utilize what is known as a bully box. The box is conspicuously placed in a common area at each school where students can anonymously drop letters or concerns to inform administration of any bullying going on or off campus. Foster says the box has been effective. They use it. Theres not a ton of things going into it, but it is being used. We investigate and discuss everything I find in there. Its a great tool that all of the Highlands County schools use. But there is so much more than we can do and that we will do to stop bullying in our schools and do all we can to prevent something tragic from happening, Foster said. Germaine feels like the schools has been affected greatly by the recent bullying incident in Lakeland. They dont quite get that being silent is participating. So many of them feel like theyre being a snitch or a tattle tale, but they have to understand sometimes you need to speak up and its okay to tell someone, Germaine said.

Page A8 News-SunFriday, October 25, 2013 able to lift fingerprints at I Maze in hopes of getting further leads, but again, Benton said those prints could be customers. She strongly urges anyone who is robbed or witnesses a robbery to call 911 immediately. This is the fourth convenience store robbery since Aug. 14, when a suspect entered the Shell gasoline station at 998 U.S. 27 N. with a handgu n and demanded money. The clerk opened the cash drawer and handed over the money, but the suspect shot the clerk an d fled the scene, Sheriffs Office reports said. The clerk was treated and released at a local hospital and was expected to survive. The second robbery was shortly before 11:30 p.m. Sept. 22 at Sunoco convenience store at 99 9 U.S. 27. Aman standing 6 feet tall with a bulky build came in at closing time wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black pants, and armed with a knife, reports said. He forced his way into the store, reports said, then ordered the clerk to open the cash register and get down on the floor. He then fled the store with the money. The clerk waited a few minutes to make sure the suspect was gone before calling 911, reports said. AK-9 unit arrived and searched the area, but didnt find the man, described as white/Hispanic and speaking both English and Spanish, reports said. The third robbery took place on Oct. 8 at the Citgo station at U.S. 27 and Morrill Ave. It was another robbery at gunpoint, Public Information Officer Nell Hays said, but no one was shot or injured. Benton said she has put all four recent Avon Park armed robbery cases under one detective in hopes of comparing methods and suspect descrip tions for similarities. She also said she has reached out to other agencies to see if they have had similar robberies. Many communities have rules that require convenience stores to have two people in the store after certain hours or lock the main doors after a certain hour, Benton said. She said there was a recent incident at Shell Food Mart, 400 E. Main Street, where the suspe ct did not get in because the clerk had shut down and locked the doors. That provides good preven tion, she said. Of course, we want to catch these bad guys, Benton said. Anyone with information is requested to contact Detective Nathan Coogan with the Sheriffs Office Criminal Investigations Unit at 863-4027250. Anyone who wants to remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward may contact Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-8477 (TIPS) or online at Continued from A1 Things are going good so far, were all geared up, said Jen Brown, Sebring Historical Society board member and president of the Sebring Centennial Celebration Inc.

For more information contact Brown at or 6555554 or visit Continued from A1 A dministrator June Fisher r evealed that MSTUs actuall y are assessed in the same m anner as property taxes, m eaning that they are subj ect to the same kinds of e xemptions, so those who a re paying such taxes now w ould be hit again, while t hose who do not pay would a lso escape such an assessm ent. The one feature such a tax m ight provide would be to d elineate costs, directing the m oney assessed to a specific s ervice, meaning it could be u sed to give citizens a better i dea how much they are payi ng annually for a given c ounty service. Some of the services listed f or MSTUs included law e nforcement, libraries and p arks and recreation. M oreover, one of the provis ions of instituting an MSTU w ould be that any municipali ty in the county also would h ave to sign off or citizens w ithin the city limits would n ot be subject to it. We were looking at it as s omething that would genera te revenue that wasnt nece ssarily subject to the exempt ions that ad valorem taxes a re, but since it is an ad valo rem tax, then the same peop le that are paying now w ould be paying this versus c apturing some money from e verybody who is using the s ervice, said Commissioner J im Brooks. Is it possible to d o some of these things with a non-ad valorem assessm ent? County Attorney Ross M acbeth explained that the F lorida Supreme Court, as w ell as several courts of a ppeals, have issued a numb er of decisions on the M SBUs, indicating such l evies must show a benefit to t he real property and not just t he owners on it. If it doesnt have a benef it to real property, you cann ot assess it, he said. That i s one of the qualifiers. The county already has m ore than 30 special taxing d istricts with assessments d edicated to road, sidewalk s treet lighting and even law e nforcement. Several residents came forw ard to suggest such things a s privatization of services, u ser fees and the reduction of c ounty services as commiss ioners look toward a bleak b udget in the upcoming 2 014-15 fiscal year. That spawned a discussion o n the development of a citiz ens advisory committee to l ook at other possible o ptions. What I would like to ask i s if the commission would c onsider a citizens committee t o focus on the budget that m ight come up with some i deas, similar to the animal c ontrol committee we put t ogether, suggested commiss ioner Don Elwell. He pointed to groups such a s the Highlands Tea Party, t he Group for Better G overnment, the Highlands C ounty Voters League as well a s representatives from the t wo major political parties as s ources for such a committee. That would give us more r ecommendations so choose f rom, he said. Of course, s ome will be more feasible t han others, but it would give u s some choices. Macbeth cautioned that a ny such committee created b y the commission would be s ubject to government in the s unshine laws. Vice-Chairman Greg H arris, running the meeting i n the absence of Chairman J ack Richie, requested that t he matter be turned over to s taff for research and a reco mmendation at a later date. Continued from A1 County looks at funding Founders Day festivities on tap Saturday in Sebring HCSO probing store robberies in Avon Park By PHILATTINGER pattinger@newssun.comSEBRING Just three months after breaking ground, the aerospace/aviation program at Lake Placid High School plans to dedicate its Aviation Development Center at Sebring Regional Airport on Saturday. Areception will start at 9 a.m. with the program and ceremony at 10 a.m., said John Rousch, career and technical instructor at LPHS. Its also designed to be an education facility, said Rousch, vice president of Heartland Experimental Aircraft Association Chapter 1240 and youth education coordinator for the groups Young Eagles program. Were at a point now where we need to grow, he said. Rousch told the School Board of Highlands County that there is an opportunity to take the program to all three county high schools. The building grew out of the Heartland EAAand the school board partnership that started two years ago. The program itself has been at LPHS for the last 10 years The building was built in part with a $175,000 donation from James Ray of the Aviation Education Foundation of Naples and also represents a partnership between Heartland EAAand both the Sebring Regional Airport and Heartland Workforce Board. The 40-by-70-foot hangar provides space for aircraft projects, classrooms, bathrooms and storage, Rousch said. Students learn about the physics behind aviation, help restore and repair old planes two airframes have been donated to the school and then learn the technical aspects of powered flight. When we get them up to speed on the tech, we put them in the righthand (copilot) seat, Rousch said. Then the students get to learn what its like to take the controls of an aircraft in flight, he said. Once they realize they can keep the plane stable, it builds confidence. Plane restoration has included putting new fabric on the frame of a 1946 taildragger. It was donated as a project piece, along with an engine, Rousch said. Instructors and students opted to keep the engine around for a future project, but have refitted the fuselage to serve as a parade float. Its been at homecoming, Rousc h said. In the near future, he hopes to hav e them build an all-metal aircraft, if it s possible to get a kit from a manufacturer. Students also helped at Sebring Regional Airport recently when formation flyers in T-28 Trojans and T-6 Texans came to train and get recertified in preparation for this springs Sun n Fun Fly at Lakeland Linder Regional Airport. The students helped with logistics and even got to ride along for a few flights, Rousch said. News-Sun reporter Samantha Gholar contributed to this report.

By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentENGLEWOOD The regu lar season had come to an e nd and the Lady Blue S treaks led by their two seni ors, Lindsey Whittington a nd Jordan Hinkle, had a d istrict championship on t heir mind. They would travel to E nglewood to face the M anta Rays of Lemon Bay i n the first round of districts. The record between these t wo finishing at a 1-1 tie it w as a mystery to see how t his night would end. Sebring shot out to the l ead like a rocket with a q uick 3-0 advantage over the M anta Rays. But a quick momentum s hift would put Lemon Bay u p front 7-3 forcing Venessa S inness to use a timeout. The Streaks were still d own but fighting back n onetheless as three consecu tive points were scored first b y Cadie OHern with a solo b lock, then a kill by Hannah T ucker, followed by a tip f rom OHern to bring the s core 14-10 with Sebring s till trailing. Akill from Hinkle still kept the difference at four making the score 18-14, Manta Rays still on top. An assisted block between Caylin Webb and Hannah Gotsch shortened the difference to two 19-17, soon after the Blue Streaks tied the score at 21 forcing Lemon Bay to use a timeout. Akill by Webb gave the lead back to Sebring 22-21, but the Manta Rays quickly recovered pushing two points ahead making the Streaks use their second timeout 23-22. Back-to-back kills by Hinkle and a stuffed solo block by OHern ended the set 25-23 with the Blue Streaks on top. The second set was exhilarating to say the least. Sebring again jumped out to the lead thanks to an ace by Hinkle 2-0. AGotsch kill continued the lead for the Streaks 3-2. Lemon Bay gained some Crayfish, also called crawfish or crawdads, and commonly referred to by fishermen as craws are closely related to the lobster. More than half of the more than 500 species occur in North America. Nearly all live in freshwater, although a few survive in saltwater. Crayfish are characterized by a joined head and thorax, or midsection, and a segmented body, which is sandy yellow, green or dark brown with occasional red streaks. Crayfish are usually about three inches long. Crayfish, common in lakes and rivers, often conceal themselves under rocks, logs or in heavy vegetation. Young crayfish are more likely to be the ones out on a bright, sunny day, while the older crayfish are more active on cloudy days and at night. General movement is always a slow walk, but if startled, crayfish use rapid flips of their tail to swim backwards and escape danger. So what does all this have to do with bass fishing? Alot! Largemouth bass love to eat crawfish, and they eat a lot of them. Monday I took a couple from Illinois, the Warners, out on a guide trip to Lake Istokpoga. We put the boat in on the south end of the lake at Windy Point and the fog was so thick we were forced to fish in the area of the boat ramp. They were anxious to learn how to flip for bass, so I rigged up a co uple of flippinsticks and gave them a short presentation. Normally I like to flip with a blue/black YUM Dinger, but Steve Dubois had given me a few bags of plastic craws that hes been having some good luck on so I rigged up th e rods with two different colors of Strike Kings Rage Tail. I moved the boat in close to the reeds and within a few flips, Sandy who was fishing from the front deck, hooked into a nice three pounder, and failing to set the hook, watched as the bass spit the hook out and swam away. I told her to watch me as I flipped around a clu ster of reeds and another News-Sun Friday, October 25, 2013 BSection Sports Friday Night Football Sebring vs. Lely 7 p.m., Firemens FieldSebring 5-2, lost at Winter Haven, 43-0.

Dan Hoehne/News-Sun files Trips to the district championship and state playoffs were just out of reach of Ansley Salender and the Lady Blue Streaks as they fell at Lemon Bay Tuesday night. Dan Hoehne/News-Sun files Marina Torres and the Lady Devils rose above Tuesday night, topping Frostproof to reach the District 9-4A tournament title game and assure themselves a spot in the state playoffs. Avon Park was all set to face Andrea Barajas and the Green Dragons, who swept past McKeel to clinch their own spot in the playoffs. By JOHN HAHN Ledger CorrespondentLAKELAND Avon Park a nd Lake Placid locked up s pots in the Class 4Aregiona l volleyball playoffs T uesday night by winning D istrict 9 semifinal matches a gainst Frostproof and M cKeel Academy, respect ively. Avon Park defeated the L ady Bulldogs, 25-18, 25-6, 2 5-10 in the first match and L ake Placid ousted the host M cNeel Wildcats, 25-13, 251 7, 25-15. We settled down in that s econd game and got some momentum, said Avon Park coach Shane Wirries, whose Red Devils had an 11-5 overall record. We had some really good serves, especially in that game. Otaysha Smith was part of a 15-point run in the second and Keuanna Robinson finished a 22-3 lead with an ace for Avon Park. In the third game, the Red Devils raced to a 13-2 lead and cruised. In the second match, McKeel battled back to come within 18-16, but the net play of the Lake Placid (20-5) was too much for the smaller Wildcats. Our net play has been stronger in the last month, said Dragons coach Charlotte Bauder. Weve played a lot of games and the net play has seemed to jell. McKeel, however, stayed with the visitors, holding leads of 7-4 and 10-9 in the second contest, but Lake Placid pulled away near the end, building a 22-16 margin. With the title match set up between the two Highlands County opponents, the tournament shifted to Lake Placid Thursday, with the top-seeded Dragons getting the nod to play host. The two teams will be squaring off for the fourth time this season, including the Preseason Classic at Sebring, with Lake Placid holding a 3-0 edge. But as is well known around these parts, when it is a match between county foes, recent history could well be out the window. See Sundays News-Sun for a recap of the championship contest.

Taking third, with a -13, were Tom Lacy, Ed Bartusch and Gene Ransom. Getting closest to the pin on the day was Lacy, who hit to 14-feet, 2-inches from No. 11. The Womens Golf Association played a Scramble on Tuesday, Oct. 22. The team of Von Lacy, Karen Wallin, Pat Haas and Handan Schneider totaled 61.2 for the win, with Sue Mackey, Carol Olsen, Narola Rosenberg and Joan Sniffen were second with a 63.1. Rose Hunter, Bobbie Miller and Jeanne Ransom took third place with a 63.5. Mackey had closest to the pin at No. 11, getting to within a miniscule 2-feet, 6-inches. The Lake Placid High School Baseball Scramble was played on Saturday, Oct. 19, with a field of 76 players on hand. Taking first in Flight 1 was the Heartland National Bank team, with Kerry Thompson, Jason Rogers, Sam Rogers and Tripp Watters totaling a 16 for the win.

Team C&C, made up of Terry and Jackie Coyne along with Scott and Andy Canady, found itself claiming second while the Holiday Inn Express team was a Warner family outing with Alan, Mike, Michael and Rocco finishing third. b ass picked up the craw. I set up and handed her t he rod and she landed the f ish. Handing her back the rod, I watched as she continued t o get pickups, only to lose f ish after fish because she d idnt set the hook. Meanwhile, her husband, f ishing out of the back of the b oat was having the time of h is life setting up and landi ng fish after fish. He couldnt believe how e asy flipping was. I continued to help his w ife and eventually ended u p setting the hook for her a nd letting her land the fish. She seemed pretty happy w ith that arrangement. The fog finally lifted and w e moved from spot to spot, f inding hungry bass at every s top. By 2 p.m., although we w ere catching and releasing e ach fish, we estimated that w ed easily caught over 20 b ass. We also figured wed m issed at least that many. And wed used up every R age Tail craw in the four p ackages that Steve had g iven me. It was a great trip and one t hat this couple from Illinois w ill remember for a long t ime to come. But it also reminded me j ust how effective plastic c rawfish can be particularl y this time of the year. Lots of companies make p lastic craws and it would be i mpossible to mention all of t hem, but you might want to a dd them to your bass fishi ng arsenal. Consider the natural colo rs mentioned in my opening p aragraphs and fish them s low, with an occasional r apid jump. You may end up with a day on the water like we had last Monday.Wednesday, Oct. 16 tournamentI didnt get to fish last Wednesday because I had another guide trip on Lake Istokpoga. Kyle King won the event with three bass weighing in at 6.38 pounds. Paul Tardiff took second place with three fish weighing 6.10 lbs.Friday, Oct. 18, tournamentFridays tournament was a tough one but Paul Tardiff won again with three fish weighing 6.14 lbs. I took second place with only one fish weighing in at 5.06 lbs. I lost a big fish five minutes from quitting time on a deep-diving crankbait in 12 of water. I dont usually like to talk about fish that I lost, but Im gonna be dreaming about this fish for some time to come. It was a real beauty.Okeechobee/Istokpo ga Team Trail Nick DeSanta and I fished the first tournament with John Woods Team Trail on Lake Istokpoga last Sunday. We knew it would be a tough tournament for us since neither of us had fished the Big O for quite a while. We found a few fish, lost a few and ended up not even weighing in five bass. Our biggest, a 4 1/2 pounder was caught by Nick with a peanut butter Medlock Jig. Im not sure who won the event, but I think it took around 28 pounds to win. I know the guy who weighed in his fish ahead of us had a 7.70 pound bass and I heard John tell him it was the third largest. There were some big sacks of fish weighed in. Were looking forward to the next tournament on Lake Istokpoga.REDS King of the HillFor those of you who follow basketball and football playoffs, weve put together a small bass tournament on Lake Jackson beginning Saturday, Nov. 2, that will have only eight teams but each team will be paired against only one other team, and whoever wins will advance to the following week. Well start on Nov. 2 with eight teams, the winners only four teams, will fish on Nov. 9, and the two winning teams will fish against each other on Nov. 16 for the championship. Only eight teams will be accepted into the tournament, with an entry fee of $50 per boat (you only pay for the first tournament), and a payout of $500 $300 for 1st place, $100 for 2nd place and $100 (donated by REDS II) for big bass of the tournament. It should be a lot of fun. Remember, you only have to beat the team youre scheduled to fish against in order to proceed to the next week. Once you lose, youre done. If you are interested, stop by REDS II and pick up an entry form and sign up. Once eight teams have paid their entry fees the tournament will be closed. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder. He lives in the Golf Hammock area of Sebring with his wife Lexie, and is the owner of a custom rod building company appropriately named The American Fisherman.

The Blue Streaks kept rolling with two kills by Hinkle and another by Webb forcing the second timeout by Lemon Bay still early in the set at 14-10. Three tricky tips by Webb and two by the setter Whittington would put the Streaks out to a five point lead over the Rays 19-14. Aroll shot by Hinkle would put Sebring within two points of finishing the second set 23-19, but there was a shift in the waters and the Manta Rays took full advantage. Both teams battled back and forth with both having opportunities to end the set, but it was eventually finished off by Lemon Bay 29-27. The final two sets were complete 180 degree shifts from the first two. It seemed as though the Streaks had run out of steam and began to slowly dwindle down in power. They were able to hang neck and neck with Lemon Bay throughout both of the whole sets and then let the Manta Rays steal all momentum finishing up both at 25-19. Like coach always say s, Unfortunately someone h as to lose, Hinkle said. W e played well in all four sets but not good enough. And to my amazement, this might have been the first game that none of us missed a serve. Lindsey and I both are sad its over for us but we cant help but smile when we remember all the mem ories we made over the past four years.

Instead, phone calls and t ext messages were the culp rits. Compliance issues a l ack of monitoring certain a reas well enough at times were part of Miamis m ess over the past few y ears. And even though NCAA C ase No. M362 is now e ssentially over, with a small n umber of scholarship losses f or football and mens bask etball as the most signific ant penalties left to address, t he Hurricanes want to e nsure this saga never r epeats itself. The challenge for all of u s is to make sure the less ons learned in what weve g one through are never forg otten, Miami athletic d irector Blake James said W ednesday, one day after the N CAAs report on the H urricanes was finally r eleased. Miami self-reported n umerous violations regardi ng improper phone calls and t ext messages in 2009 t hings that on their own w ould have seemed like p arking tickets. The NCAAstarted looking l ooked at the Hurricanes t hen and amped-up the probe a few months later when the f ormer booster and masterm ind of a $930 million P onzi scheme began sharing h is story with investigators. Staff members had a poor u nderstanding of NCAA r ules or felt comfortable b reaking them, the NCAA s aid Tuesday. It would seem unfair to a pply those words to everyone at Miami and worth noting that former Hurricane compliance director David Reed once confronted Shapiro at a football game and warned others at the school about him. But if nothing else, its a reminder of the need for vigilance. Its building a culture where people have relationships with compliance and trust that compliance is there to help them and assist them, said Jennifer Strawley, Miamis senior associate athletics director for administration. Its creating an atmosphere where its OK that if a mistake happens, we deal with it. Most Miami athletic administrators have been hired since the Shapiro scandal broke widely in 2011 or have assumed new roles since. Compliance officials have more of a public persona now, utilizing social media and seminars to educate boosters, coaches and athletes about right and wrong. Miami is still asking donors for support but warning them that it wont buy unfettered access. Everybody in our community has been, to a person, totally supportive, Miami President Donna Shalala said. Whether its the students or the faculty or the alumni, theyve been supportive both of the sanctions we imposed on ourselves and the way we conducted ourselves. Theyre also committed to how much were going to have to invest in making sure that we do everything we can to stay within NCAArules. Miami is not the only school to be tightening the reins. Coaches know finding the right balance when it comes to compliance isnt easy. You know, its really a double-edged sword because you want your guys to meet some people that are going to be beneficial to them down the road, West Virginia basketball coach Bob Huggins said. Potential employers, people who have contacts, people who can make calls, people who can be references. At the same time, youre supposed to stay away from those very people. Atwo-page list shows how seriously Miami is taking all this. The NCAAs infractions report shows the corrective measures Miami has taken to safeguard against a future Shapiro-like mess. Boosters now have limited access to Miami athletes and facilities. Even the compliance office was moved so there could be better access to athletes. Nothing is foolproof, but this scandal showed the Hurricanes areas where they were vulnerable. Education, James said. I think thats the biggest component of it. Alot of the structure weve put into place. Now its educating everyone. Its continuing to educate our coaches. Its continuing to educate our student-athletes. Its doing more reach-out with our fans and our alums on the process. Around campus Wednesday, it was back to work. Is it nice to have it over? Yeah, its nice, said Craig Anderson, Miamis associate athletic director for compliance. And were moving forward. AP Sports Writer Dave Skretta in Kansas City, Mo. contributed to this report.

DearPharmacist: I have eczema that comes and goes, and Im currently using a steroid cream which helps. I am sure when I stop the cream, it will return. Any advice? E.H., Tampa Answer: There are many factors to consider when treating eczema, including the state of your digestive tract, immune system and what youre touching. First I would take high-quality probiotics because that helps both your digestive tract and immune system. Then I would eliminate common food triggers such as eggs, soy, wheat (gluten), dairy and corn. Next, look at what youre touch. Some of you react to metals that contain nickel which is in coins, necklaces, eyeglasses, watches, and rings, for example. Astudy published in the July 2012 issue of Contact Dermatitis that is called Coin exposure may cause allergic dermatitis. We knew about this problem as far back as 1991, when a case report was published in the August issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology featuring a 48-year-old cashier with hand eczema and a genuine nickel allergy. Eczema is actually common in cashiers. If I had dyshidrotic eczema (hand eczema), I would stop counting out change, which I do this frequently, much to the annoyance of people standing behind me. If you are one of these folks, its easy to remedy. I suggest that you remove all your jewelry and not touch coins for a few weeks. Definitely avoid white gold and costume jewelry. Think about what you are touching, maybe a metallic pen, a cell phone, gear shifter, stainless steel pots or a laptop keyboard. I found a product that tests for nickel in your items, so your skin doesnt have to. Its called The Nickel Solution Kit by Athena Allergy. You can also buy a little bottle of Nickel Guard from that company and paint it on your glasses or your jewelry to stop the rash you would normally get from these items. Theres a prescription drug called Psorizide Forte that contains fumaric acid which blocks the skin cells from growing wildly; it contains a homeopathic form of nickel which desensitizes you to nickel. Also by prescription, Eczemol tablets by Plymouth Pharmaceuticals. Thinking about a skin prick test or intradermal injections to gauge allergic reactions to metal? Um, can I just say no? Metal hypersensitivity blood tests are better. Visit to find a suitable lab. The MELISA test detects sensitivities to gold, cobalt, chromium, palladium, titanium, tin, nickel, cadmium, mercury and others. This test may help someone with autism, scoliosis, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and osteoporosis. Your physician orders the blood test for you Theres much more including soothing creams, teas, home remedies and medications all in my Eczema: ItchinFor ACur e book, only available for Ereaders on Amazon.

As an aunt of a n ephew with a utism, I have seen f irst hand the intric acies of the b ehavioral patterns o f this condition. S ince he lives in P ensacola, my first i nteraction with h im was when he w as about 18 m onths old. He h ad not yet been d iagnosed; however, it was o bvious to me that somet hing was wrong with him v isually. Even when I got d own on his level and held h is little face in my hands, h e would not make eye c ontact with me for any l ength of time. My son is the same age a s my nephew, and I r emember thinking that s omething was not quite r ight, but as my in-laws had n ot received a diagnosis y et, I remained quiet. It w as shortly thereafter that m y sister-in-law was told t hat her son was autistic. Autism represents a very c omplex developmental c ondition that usually m akes itself known very e arly in life. Difficulties w ith communication and s ocial interaction are hallm arks of this disease and r ange from mild to disa bling in severity. The earl ier intervention is initiated, t he better the prognosis. In 2010, it was believed t hat 1 in 1,500 people were d iagnosed with autism. The C DC revised this number in 2 012 to 1 in 150. The advoc acy organization, Autism S peaks, estimates that the p revalence of autism may b e as high as 1 in 88, with b oys being three to four t imes more likely than girls t o be affected. The A merican Academy of P ediatrics states that autism s pectrum disorders may be d iagnosed as early as 14 m onths of age and that child ren should be screened for t hese disorders twice by the a ge of 2. This is where p ediatric vision exams c ome in. As an InfantSEE p rovider, I see children as y oung as 6 months old. A ssessing visual developm ent in a child begins with t he babys gaze. Healthy b abies are engaged by looki ng into your eyes. This is h ow kids later identify f riendships. Babies that are j ust a few minutes old will b ond with their mother by g azing into her eyes. Clearly, an eye examinat ion on an infant is much d ifferent than on an older c hild or adult. How well an i nfant sees can be establ ished during the exam as w ell as eye movement, alignment and overall assessment of ocular health. Possible indicators of autism may be seen through pupillary reflex, blink reflex, attention, choice of fixation object, eye movement, and gaze following. Eye movement and fixation are the areas to look at closely when autism is suspected. Noting where the infant looks, how long they look, and how well they track are important. Parents may even observe this during the babys tummy time. Most healthy babies love to make eye contact with the parent when on their tummies. This should be an interactive time between parent and child, not the time to put the baby on his tummy and walk away. Visual indicators alone are usually not enough to diagnose a child with autism; however, if something seems amiss during the childs exam, its recommended to see if the findings change over the course of a month. If problems continue, other specialists may be consulted. In my nephews case, our family was devastated, but to my sister-in-lawscredit, she intervened early to get my nephew the support he needed to interact with others. His condition has improved more than we could have hoped, through a variety of treatments and diet modifications. He will actually make eye contact with people now, and socially interacts better than before. As with most autistic children, he is exceptionally smart and is reading on an eighth-grade level at the age of 8. He will never be what the world calls normal, but hes ours and we love him.

Special to the News-SunSALTLAKE CITY The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) will partner this month to present an original production about the history and values of scouting. ACentury of Honor commemorates the 100-year relationship between the church and the BSA, and will be staged at the church's 21,000-seat conference center on Tuesday. The event will be broadcast live at 7 p.m. (MDT) to thousands of church meetinghouses across the United States and streamed live at, where it will also be available for later viewing. Scouts from all denominations and chartering organizations, as well as all community members, are invited to view the broadcast. Hundreds of Scouts will participate in the 85-minute program, featuring Scout choirs, historical vignettes, and videos highlighting important events, service and achievements from the past century. The churchs Young Men general president, Brother David L. Beck, says scouting has helped instill Mormon young men with a sense of duty to serve in their families, congregations and communities. Scouting enables our young men to learn to look outside themselves and to join with people of other faiths and organizations in service, he said. On May 21, 1913, the church became the first nationally chartered organization to affiliate with the Boy Scouts of America, based on a mutual interest in helping boys and young men understand and live their duty to God. Over the past 100 years, countless young men have participated in Boy Scouts through church-sponsored troops. We are pleased to be celebrating this 100th anniversary with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said Wayne Brock, chief scout executive, Boy Scouts of America. The church was the Boy Scouts of Americas first sponsor in 1913, and a century later remains dedicated to the scouting movement. We thank the church for their commitment to our mission and join with the rest of the scouting family to celebrate the immeasurable impact it has had on our nation's youth as we look forward to our ongoing relationship. The BSAwill also hold its national and regional board and committee meetings in Salt Lake City this week in commemoration of the partnerships centennial year. As the crowded airliner w as about to take off, the p eace was shattered by a 5y ear-old boy who picked t hat very moment to throw a t antrum. No matter what his f rustrated and embarrassed m other did to try to calm h im down, the boy continu ed to scream furiously and k ick the seats of those a round him. Suddenly, from the rear of t he plane, an elderly man in t he uniform of an Air Force g eneral slowly walked up t he aisle. Stopping the flust ered mother with an u praised hand, the whiteh aired, soft-spoken general l eaned down and, motioning t oward his chest, whispered s omething into the boys e ar. Instantly, the boy c almed down, gently took h is mothers hand, and quie tly fastened his seatbelt. A ll the other passengers b urst into spontaneous a pplause. As the general slowly m ade his way back to his s eat, one of the cabin attend ants touched his sleeve. Excuse me, General, she a sked quietly, but what m agic words did you use on t hat little boy? The old m an smiled serenely and r eplied, I showed him my p ilot's wings, service stars, a nd battle ribbons. Then I e xplained that those e mblems entitled me to t hrow one passenger out of t he plane door on any flight I choose. Ageneral is a man of g reat authority. He is over m any men, and each of t hose men strictly follow each one of his commands. However, an earthly general's authority is limited. It may be limited only to the soldiers who serve under him. It may be limited only to his branch of the military. Or, it may be limited only to the nation under which he serves. But, there is One whose authority is without limits, and that One is Jesus Christ. After Jesus had been crucified, buried in a tomb, and resurrected on the third day, Matthew 28:16-20 records the following account before His ascension into Heaven: But the eleven disciples proceeded to Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had designated. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some were doubtful. And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." After Jesus established that He had been given all authority, He gave His disciples the command to go and make other disciples of all the nations. This would be accomplished in two ways: (1) Baptizing in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (2) Teaching obedience to all of Jesuscommands. If Jesus has all authority, who am I to disobey any of His commands? To disobey one in authority invites trouble, but to disobey the One with all authority invites eternal death. Are you a disciple of Jesus Christ? Have you been baptized? Are you obeying all that is commanded of you? If not, then submit yourself to Jesus Christ and obey His authority today.

Phone 453-6052.PLACESTOWORSHIP In the first article on the h ome and marriage study, w e considered from the perf ect How to book. i.e., t he Bible, the following b uilding blocks: C ommitment for Life, S hared Identity, Absolute F aithfulness and U nderstanding the R oll/Work of Each Other. A s in all Divine instruct ions, the plan will work if y ou will work the plan. 5. Unreserved love: So J acob served seven years f or Rachel, and they seemed o nly a few days to him b ecause of the love he had f or her (Genesis 29:20). It t urned out to be a total of 1 4 years! (Genesis 29:30) J acobs love for Rachel was t ested and it passed the test. First, consider the quali ties of this unreserved l ove desperately needed in m arriages and homes today a s listed in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (NASV): patient, kind, not jealous, does not brag, not arrogant, not act unbecomingly, not seek its own, not provoked, not take into account a wrong suffered, not rejoice in unrighteousness, rejoices in truth, bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things and never fails. Amplified NT: endures long, patient, kind; never envious nor boils over with jealousy; not boastful or vainglorious, not haughtily, not conceited-arrogant or inflated with pride, not rude, not act unbecomingly, not insist on own rights, not self-seeking, not touchy, fretful, resentful, no account of evil done, not rejoice in injustice, rejoices when right prevail, bears under all things, ready to believe the best, hopes are fadeless, endures everything, never fails. When these Godly traits are living in wife and husband, mother and father, son and daughter the home will be able to withstand anything a godless society can hurl at them! Wives, submit to our own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord. Husbands, loves your wives and do not be bitter toward them. Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord. Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged (Colossian 3:18-21). There is no better How to book than the original Book. 6. Mutual submission: The effectiveness of this quality is based on the mindset that each member of the family is a servant. But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God (1 Corinthians 11:3). Though the husband is the head of the wife and home, So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies, he who loves his wife loves himself (Ephesians 5:28) and Fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). Wives, though submissive to their husbands, are to see that she respects her husband (Ephesians 5:22,33). Children are not only to obey their parents but to honor your father and mother (Ephesians 6:1,2). Children can obey (out of fear) and not honor but they cannot honor and not obey. Jesus stated the principle this way, But why do you call me Lord, Lord,and not do the things which I say? (Luke 6:46). 7. Sexual fulfillment: Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning, made them male and female (Matthew 19:4). Divine plan has always involved design for a purpose. What was the purpose of male and female? 1) Be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:27,28) for the procreation and nurture of continuing generations of mankind upon earth is a God-ordained privilege and commandment. Of course, this can only be accomplished by a union of Adam and Eve and not Adam and Steve. 2 Proverbs 5:15-20 describes the intimacy of sexual relations between wife and husband. Further inspired instructions are in 1 Corinthians 7:1-5. Hollywood has dragged sex into the gutter and that tragically is the masse s source of information. There was always the need to restore Biblical teaching and respect for that which is sacred. Note Malachi 2:10-16 with the above mentioned scriptures. Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge (Hebrews 13:4). To be continued...

Arrival of baby brings anxiety for father to be Dear Abby By SCOTTFOUNDAS VarietyLOS ANGELES If the Jackass movies have always spit exuberantly in the face of age and mortality, its fitting that co-creators Johnny Knoxville, Spike Jonze and Jeff Tremaine have now given us one devoted to Knoxvilles octogenarian alter ego, Irving Zisman. Strangely touching, too, given that the Jackass boys are all in their 40s now and still throwing caution to the wind. Strapping a loose narrative framework onto the seriespatented stunts and candid-camera gags, Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa shows theres still comic life in this decadeold franchise provided, of course, the sight of a senior citizen getting his penis caught in a vending machine is the kind of thing that brings a smile to your face. Originally introduced during the final season of Jackass on MTV, the Zisman character has been a mainstay ever since, sometimes paired with Jonzes nonagenarian prostitute character Gloria for maximum elder-care chaos. In Bad Grandpa, Irvings family is fleshed out to include a crack-addict daughter (Georgina Kates), who, on the verge of returning to prison, tasks Irving with transporting his 8year-old grandson (Jackson Nicoll) to the boys deadbeat father (Greg Harris) in North Carolina. Thats the plot as far as it goes, which is really just a device for putting Knoxville and the cherubic, foul-mouthed Nicoll (The Fighter) in a car together and letting them wreak their inspired havoc across state lines. Acouple of the movies best and most outrageous payoffs come right up front, when Irving enlists a couple of unwitting furniture movers to help him load the corpse of the late Mrs. Zisman (Catherine Keener) into his car, then tries to circumvent the road trip by simply UPS-ing little Billy all the way to Raleigh. The m.o. of Jackass has always been the comedy of physical pain a Three Stooges for the XGames era married to a kind of anarchic street theater. Knoxville and company delight at finding ways to make life veer off its neatly ordered path and in capturing the flummoxed reactions of those who bear witness. Here, they take an added glee in playing off social mores concerning children and the elderly how they should be treated, and when they shouldnt be held responsible for their actions (as when Irving and Billy eat their way through a mini-mart, then make a run for it). Even with Knoxville buried under layers of latex, his willingness to do anything for a laugh is a gift that keeps on giving, whether hes getting smashed between the jaws of a spring-loaded adjustable bed or hurled through a plate-glass window by a malfunctioning strip-mall kiddie ride. But the most talked-about sequence from Bad Grandpa seems likely to be Irvings impromptu bootie shaking (complete with low-hanging elastic scrotum) on the floor of an allblack male strip club. Bad Grandpa isnt as sustained a piece of work as the earlier Jackass pics, and it can even seem tame in light of the more outrageous bits in Borat and Bruno perhaps a sign that Knoxville et al. are ever so slightly maturing. Too much of the film gets bogged down in Irving making lewd passes at uninterested younger women (and one possibly interested drive-thru attendant), but even at its low ebb, the movie effuses an infectious, mischief-making joy. After spending most of the movie as the relative straight man, Nicoll proves himself every bit as fearless as his battle-scarred mentor during a drag-kiddie-pageant finale thats like tobacco juice in the eye of Little Miss Sunshine. Bad Grandpa shows Jackass is still spry Movie Review Bad Grandpa Rating: R (strong crude and sexual content throughout, language, some graphic nudity and brief drug use) Running time: 91 minutes Review: (of 4) Sean Cliver/MTVFilms/MCT Johnny Knoxville portrays accident-prone Irving Zisman while Jackson Nicoll plays his grandson in Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa.


t was a dark and spooky night, but Wilhelmena was not going to miss Halloween. She put on her flowered angel costume and picked up her brightest lantern. She bounced out the door, and SMACK! Willie ran right into her best friend Lily. Ouch. With Lily by her side and her father and baby brother Tom (and his bottle) trailing behind her Willie went out to see what treats she could find. The night swirled with strange noises and wild animals. Three frogs croaked in the distance. Two white opossums stirred from their hanging spots. Flutter, flutter, PFFT. Willie jumped. Something was on her nose. ACK! Lily laughed. It was a ladybug. The dotted bug fluttered off, and Willie looked around. Six ladybugs were around her neighborhood! There were also lots of her classmates from school disguised in fun and interesting costumes. Josh, Patrick and Tiffany were dressed as characters from Harry Potter. They each had magic wands. Jaclyn was dressed as the Statue of Liberty and carried a torch. And Jordan was a cowboy in his ten-gallon hat. The girls were ready to make their first trick-ortreat stop at scary Mrs. Peabodys. Mrs. Peabody was the neighborhood widow, and no one liked to stop there. There were always cats in the attic and an owl on the roof. The kids at school said Mrs. Peabody liked to eat children for a nighttime snack especially little girls on Halloween. Willie and Lily walked up to the door and reached for the doorbell. SPLAT! Something smacked the sidewalk behind them. WHAAAA! Little Bobby, Mrs. Peabodys next door neighbor wailed. The girls turned around. Acat had knocked Bobbys jack-o-lantern off the railing, and it had splatted on the sidewalk. Luckily, there were plenty of other pumpkin faces around (10, if you counted them). Before Willie could turn back to the door, Lily had reached up and BZZZZ she rang the doorbell. The heard a noise from behind the door, and CREEEEAK the door slowly opened. There stood Mrs. Peabody with a giant black kettle. She lowered the kettle to the girls. GASP! Willie was too scared to breathe. The kettle came lower low enough for Willie and Lily to see into it. And there it was the kettle, the big, black kettle full of apples. Lily and Willie each took a shiny red apple. Mrs. Peabody smiled at them. Then she asked them to wait. The girls froze. Mrs. Peabody reached into her pocket. She bent down close to the girls. Mrs. Peabody handed each girl a dollar and congratulated them on being so brave. Then WINK! Mrs. Peabody winked at them and flashed a big smile. Willie and Lily turned and skipped down the sidewalk, ready for more tricks and treats. Eight bats circled above their heads and the night was dark, but it wasnt so spooky anymore.
