Incumbents, new charter approved by 3-2 voteBy PHIL ATTINGER phil.attinger@newssun.comAVON PARK Turnout m ay not have been heavy a mong the 4,431 registered v oters in Avon Park,but a 32 majority voted to keep M ayor Sharon Schuler and C ouncilman Parkle S utherland. Of 850 votes cast,Schuler g ot 525 votes,or 61.9 perc ent. Her opponent,Greg BubbaWarner,got 323 v otes 38.1 percent. Sutherland got 534 votes, 6 3.1 percent,while Jonathan R emick got 312 votes,36.9 p ercent. Voters also approved of c hanges to the city charter b y a 2-1 margin,with 532 v otes for it (67 percent) and 2 62 votes against it (33 perc ent). Schuler said she is looking forward to improving the business climate in the town, annexing more property and bringing in more jobs for the citizens. I want to thank all the people that supported me and helped us (her and Sutherland) retain our seats, she said. Sutherland was less formal. I guess Im happy,he said while driving the town with his 15-year-old son, taking down campaign signs as quickly as possible. Im going to go home and keep on keepinon. Both said they look forward to having the city revamp the fire assessment to make it more equitable to individual residents. The level of the fire assessment was one of the issues in the campaign, along with local economic development,providing more transparency,helping spur more citizen involvement in city business and the performance of City Manager Julian Deleon. Both Schuler and Sutherland said they were pleased with Deleons performance,especially since he has presided over annexations that have added two square miles to the city limits. Schuler,age ungiven,has served on the Avon Park City Council since 1995. Sutherland,53,is a local businessman and attorney who has served on the council three years and Warner, 57,served the city as a police officer for from 19862006 before retiring and then getting hired as code enforcement officer a year later. Warner did not return calls for comment after the election,but had expressed concerns prior to the election that recent city staff cuts and increased duties would reduce city service. He also said he would like the City Council to relax public participation rules at meetings and throw away the fiveminute timer to encourage more participation. Remick,26,is a relative newcomer to Avon Park city government,although he does work in his fathers gun shop on Main Street and has bought property in the city. He still wants to be involved in city politics. He said he would like to see if the city would consider meeting with Grow Florida, an industrial and economic development gardening think tank out of the University of Central Florida in Orlando,in hopes of finding new ways to improve the local economy. The first meeting for the city council after the election will be a special meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday,Nov. 14. Schuler, Sutherland retain seats By PHIL ATTINGER LAKE PLACID Lake Placid police are warning computer users of a new piece of malware making the rounds on the Internet. Police Chief James Fansler said the software encrypts all files with a military grade encryption key. If the ransomis not paid within three days,all files are lost forever. It is usually delivered through an email attachment,either a ZIP or PDF file that says its from the U.S. Postal Service,FedEx, UPS or another mail/parcel service. According to the U.S. Computer Readiness Team at,the malware messages have even used forged tracking notices to fool users. As a rule,these organizations and companies do not send attachments with their email notifications,Fansl er said. He advises if anyo ne gets something like th is they should not open t he attachment. The reason for this,t he Computer Readiness Tea m states,is the malware h as the ability to find an d encrypt files located with in shared network drive s, USB drives,external ha rd drives,network file shar es and even some cloud sto rage drives. The malware first su rfaced this year,and affec ts Microsoft Windows sy stems running Windows 7, Vista,and XP operatin g systems.

By PHIL ATTINGER phil.attinger@newssun.comSEBRING A domestic d ispute resulted in a man b eing struck with a car and a nother man being charged w ith aggravated battery. Sean Robert Neil Norris I I,24,of 119 E. Belle View S t. in Lake Placid has been c harged with aggravated batt ery and resisting an officer w ithout violence. The charges stem from a c all at 7:58 a.m. last Friday a bout a disturbance involvi ng two people and a vehic le,and one of them possib ly being hit. When a Highlands County s heriffs deputy arrived at t he scene the intersection o f Sherman Terrace and T hunder Road he found a m an crying,laying on his s ide across the edge of the r oad with a tire impression o n the road beside him. There was a red car p arked in the road and a man t he deputy knew to be Norris s tanding over the other man, r eports said. The man said he thought h is leg was broken,so the d eputy called Emergency M edical Services. Reports state that Norris w as behaving angrily toward t he man and aggressively t oward the deputy,including squaring offat him when a sked to walk to the rear of t he car. Norris also spoke b ack to the deputy as he w alked and squared off at h im again when told to stop walking,reports said. Believing a fight would take place,the deputy put Norris in handcuffs,but had to struggle because Norris was trying to pull or push away. Eventually,Norris was placed in the back of the patrol car,reports said. While EMS treated the injured man,he told the deputy that Norris was driving erratically and would not let him out of the car during an argument. When Norris did stop and he tried to get out,Norris took off again which caused him to fall out,reports said. He said Norris turned his car around,drove past him, then spun around again and drove at him,striking him with the open passenger door as he passed,reports said. When the deputy questioned Norris later,he said the other man had struck him during the argument and then just jumped out of the car,reports said. Norris was charged and taken to Highlands County Jail without incident. By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Veterans Day will get an early start this Saturday evening as the Avon Park MowerPlex will offer free admission to veterans and current service personnel with proper military identification. We want tofill stands with the ones who fought for our freedom,said mower racer Michael Graves. A special opening ceremony has been planned, with the Avon Park Reserve Officer Training Corps invited to present the colors and an a capella version of the national anthem to be offered by Anna Maria Feeny Knight. This is our chance to honor our veterans,said Sean Kennedy,who operates the Avon Park MowerPlex with fellow racer Wes Pyburn. In addition to spectators that are military veterans, a number of drivers who will be competing in the third race of the season also have given military service to the country. They will be honored at the halftime between the heat and feature races. Kennedy said that plans are to have a specialtheme and event for each of the monthly races. Last month the racers celebrated Oktoberfest with hayrides and goodie bags for youngsters,and made a special appearance at the Avon Pakr Oktoberfest event in downtown Avon Park. Next month will be a Holiday Spectacular. We have been working on a project that could be good for the fans,good for the racers and good for the community,he said. Kennedy and Pyburn took over the operation of the lawn mower races late last year. This summer, they announced the re-affiliation with the competition under the banner of the North American Society of Grass Racers and Sod Slingers or NASGRASS. By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRNIG Earlier this year,officials of the Country Club of Sebring Utilities system were given notice by representatives of the Southwest Florida Water Management District that the operation could be shut down due to longstanding violations of the water use permit issued to the system by the Southwest Florida Water Management Distrct. Country Club Utilities now has responded with a proposed solution,created by geologist Vivian Bielski of Andreyev Engineering. It suggests that SWFWMD be asked to take responsibility for the problem,saying that the district issued water use permits that put Country Club out of compliance. I would suggest that the utilitys attorney require the district to rescind the fine that they are imposing, wrote Bielski in the memorandum,based upon the districts negligence and incorrect calculations. Bielski cited Chapter 40D-2 of the Florida Administrative Codes, which provide that calculations of permitted water quantities are based upon a compliance per capita use rate that is the average of the last five years of actual pumping data,. The utility was not given that opportunity and the quantities were not based upon the five-year compliance per capita use rate,Bielski wrote in her response. Her suggestion is that the Country Club Utilities work with SWFWMD to develop a water use permit that would not put them immediately into non compliance through permit modification application process. Country Club of Sebring Utility is a private utility company that provides potable water service to the Country Club of Sebring, serving mainly individual residences,some multifamily residences,and some commercial entities. The system has been troubled by high water usage by their customers that placed the utility in a situation of non-compliance with the Southwest Florida Water Management Districts permitted withdrawal rates on their previous and current Water Use Permit. In August,SWFWMDs then-Executive Director Blake Guillory wrote that without a substantial reduction in water use,it is possible that the customers of the utility ... may experience an increase in rates and/or an interruption of service. Guillory explained that the Country Club Utilities service area is within the Southern Water Use Caution area. The SWUCA, as it is known,is an area within which water resources are critical. Guillory said Country Club Utilitieshistory of noncompliance began more than a decade ago. Greg Harris,who owns and operates the system,maintains he has unsuccessfully attempted to implement and encourage water conservation among his utility customers. For example,Country Club Utilities had purchased rain sensors for the homeowners and had been prepared to have them installed. However,Harris said,not one utility customer responded to the offer. In addition,Harris said the company has no enforcement capabilities t o penalize homeowners for over-consumption and is strapped by lack of personnel,with assistance by only one part-time employee. Officials of the water management district have not yet replied to the CCU memo. In an effort to display what they termed a good faith effort of compliance, Country Club Utilities hir ed Bielski to look into the problem. At the time,Harris aske d for a 90to 120-day timeframe for her to gather and analyze a wide array of information ranging from the review of annual repor ts to a site specific review of the geology of the area to develop options for compliance. That report was compiled and now is in the hands of SWFWMDs legal staff.

Florida Blue pointed out to the M iami Herald that,contrary to the c laims of Republican Sen. Marco R ubio,300,000 of its policyholders will n ot "lose their individual coverage b ecause of Obamacare." "Now those people next year,they d on't have health insurance," Rubio s aid. In fact,no Florida Blue members w ill lose their coverage,company offic ials say. What they will lose are curr ent insurance plans that don't meet the b asic criteria of the Affordable Care A ct,better known as Obamacare. Those criteria include coverage of pre-existing conditions as well as yearly and lifetime caps on out-of-pocket costs. ... "We're not terminating anyone's coverage," said Jon Urbanek,Florida Blue's senior vice president of commercial markets. "We're essentially going to go through a transition to qualified plans." Most insurers and millions of individual policyholders who make up about 5 percent of the market face that same transition. Some of the plans will cost more than the policyholders are paying now,as Florida Blue officials noted,and some will cost less depending on whether the members qualify for subsidies under Obamacare. Florida Blue's clarification was a welcome respite from the misinformation and malfunctions swirling around the Obamacare enrollment period, which opened Oct. 1 ... Of course,the Obamacare launch has also "turned out not to be so good," to put it mildly. The program's website,,crashed on opening day. Like a struggling boxer,it has been up and down ever since. Obama called for a "tech surge" to fix the system,and heavy hitters like Google and Oracle have been recruited to help. We hope that Obamacare works because right now there's no better alternative for covering the 30 million uninsured Americans and 80,000 right here in Marion County that the program is intended to help ...

Savory stuffing. Green bean casserole. Sweet potato and pumpkin pie. Every family has its Thanksgiving dinner traditions. With a carefully followed recipe,everyone around the table can enjoy their favorite dishes. If you plan poorly and wait to throw the bird in the oven at the last minute, you will end up with a turkey of a dish. The same can be said for financial planning and preparing for retirement. Follow the perfect recipe and you'll be rewarded with a juicy retirement. Ingredients:one part Social Security earnings, one part savings,a pinch of planning. First,start your retirement casserole with a visit to the Retirement Estimator. As useful as a food processor,the Estimator gives you an instant projection of what you can expect to receive in retirement benefits. Just plug in some simple information and the Estimator uses your past earnings and estimated future earnings to project about how much you'll get when you retire.

It is d esigned to be a pre-school preparatory p hase that will teach 4-year-old child ren the necessary skills to begin learni ng language,pre-reading,pre-math a nd social interaction. As a parent its not always easy to k now whether or not your soon-to-be k indergarten has the skills that the k indergarten teacher will be looking f or. Kindergarten readiness skills help y ou gauge how ready your child is for k indergarten,not all children will be a ble to do all the skills. So dont worry i f your child is missing out,there is a lways time to help your child get r eady for kindergarten. Skills that VPK p rovides are self-help,social/emotiona l,language,fine motor,gross motor, m ath and literacy. phonological awaren ess.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Jamiese Wiley lead 10 players in the scorebook as the 2013-14 Lady Blue Streaks of the basketball court started out there campaign with an overwhelming, 48-11 win over Mulberry on the first night of the Sebring Preseason Tip-Off Classic. The Streaks may have lost a handful of players from last years squad, but do return a strong core of experienced players to the fold, and they got things rolling early. Christacia Dawkins scored eight first-quarter points, with Wiley adding five, as Sebring roared out to an 18 5 lead after one. And it was an aggressive, smothering defense that was setting the pace slowing the Panthers progressions and leading to turnovers that were converted to easy scores. The Streaks lengthened the lead in the second, ridin g a 14-3 advantage over the eight minutes to take a 32-8 advantage at the half. And it was a spread out scoring load that got the job done in the second, with eight different players adding to the total, includin g a bucket apiece from newcomers Olivia Burnett, By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING For a y oung, inexperienced team, t he Sebring girls soccer s quad is certainly playing b eyond expectations as t hey moved their record to 3 -1 after Tuesday nights 10 win over visiting O keechobee. Just five seniors are liste d among the 15-player v arsity roster, which gives t hem some experience, and w ith the likes of returning j uniors Haylee Peters and S hannon Bloemsma adding t heir previous playing time t o the mix and the thought o f inexperience starts to l essen. Perhaps it is their vetera n leadership, the example t hey set with their hard w ork and aggressive play t hat is doing the trick. Or it may just be a group o f tenacious and talented p layers who are taking this o pportunity to show their a bilities. It is likely a combination o f these things, but whateve r the case may be, the L ady Blue Streaks are s howing that they will be a t eam to be reckoned with a s the season goes along. On Tuesday night, for e xample, the 1-0 score might indicate a closely contested match that could have gone either way. But to those watching the battle on the pitch, it really wasnt, as Sebring was certainly the team in control. In control of the pace, in control of field position and in control of the ball. Bloemsma, a talented goalkeeper in her second full season manning the Back in 1972, along with s ome of my fishing budd ies, we started the B ulldog BassMasters, an a ffiliated chapter of the B ass Anglers Sportsman S ociety in Stow, Ohio. Afew years earlier, Ray S cott had gotten his fledgl ing company, B.A.S.S. off t he ground and we were o ne of the early clubs to j oin in this new organizat ion. Tournament fishing back i n those days was just gett ing off the ground and our c lub grew quickly, from the o riginal six Charter memb ers to over 50 anglers in t he first year. I fished in the club for a lmost 20 years, prior to m oving to Florida in the e arly 90s. Having served as presid ent, vice-president, secret ary and treasurer at one t ime or another, I enjoyed t he competition of old and n ew fishing friends and we h ad many great times. Our chapter held fundr aising events, kids tournaments, husband and wife tournaments, club picnics and great end-of-the-year banquets where wed recognize our top fishermen. Many of you may remember that we started another club here in Highlands County back in the late 90s. We were originally a B.A.S.S. chapter, but later dropped out of B.A.S.S. and continued as just a fishing club. When I moved up north in 2006, I think the club eventually disbanded, although Ive heard the club still exists, but none of the original members belong to it. So here it is 2013, and Im looking at starting another B.A.S.S. chapter. Things havent changed much over the years. Each member still has to be a member of B.A.S.S. in order to join a chapter, and it still takes six members to start up a new chapter. I think the thing that I most enjoyed in both clubs was the opportunity to fish with so many different people. All tournaments are draw tournaments boaters in one pile and non-boaters in another and names are drawn prior to each tournament. Unlike most bass clubs where teams compete (two guys who fish together in every event), draw tournaments in a B.A.S.S. chapter tournament pair up a boater with a non-boater, and eventually, you get a chance to fish with a number of different members. Even though two members fish out of the same boat, they are still in competition with each other and everyone else in the club. Most B.A.S.S. chapters have more boaters than non-boaters, and when that happens, a drawing is held and only the number of boaters needed will be drawn from a hat and some boaters may end up fishing with another boater using their boat. There are far too many benefits for each member to go into detail here, but one of the benefits are you and every other member of a B.A.S.S. chapter have an opportunity to earn one of six BassMaster Classic berths. I need five more guys to start the club. If youre interested in learning more or helping me get this off the ground, give me a call at 863-2734998, or stop by REDS II.

BUTLER, FELLOWS & BRADEN ADVT.; 5.542"; 8"; Black; 11/6,8,10; 00033098 But the Destroyers r esponded with a score to m ake it 14-12 at the break. In the second half, the E agles followed another D estroyers score when the o ffense scored on a Gagnon t o Harris pass, bringing the s core to 20-18. In this close game, Harris s cored again but the touchd own was called back due to r ules that players can only s core two touchdowns per g ame in the flag division. Frustrated, the Eagles d efense went to work but the i nclement weather and the s trong offense of the D estroyers brought a disapp ointing loss with a final s core of 33-18. Unfortunately, this loss e liminated the Flag team f rom moving on and ends t heir season with a record of 4 -6. The reigning 2012 Junior V arsity Super bowl champio ns team coached by Cliff H owell and currently seeded f ourth in the division traveled t o Haines City to take on the o n fifth-seeded Haines City R attlers. The game began with the E agles driving down the field w ith quarterback Norris T aylor Jr. completing a pass t o Kevin Rivera for a touchd own only to be called b ack for a penalty. As the Eagles defense took t he field, led by Kevin Webb, J oel Murillo, Austin Oppold a nd Jordan Rose, they quickl y shut the Rattlers down. The JVoffense, led by K asey Hawthorne, Austin G arza, Joey Picior, Jonathan R obinson and Marquis H awthorne, helped plow the w ay for fullback Geo G onzalez, who drove up the m iddle to score a touchdown t o take an early lead at 6-0. Norris completed a short p ass to Kasey Hawthorne w ho ran for 55 yards to the e nd zone. But again, the score was c alled back for a holding p enalty. The Eagles, frustrated with t he costly penalties, rallied t ogether to get back on track. In the Rattlers next offens ive drive, Murillo was going i n for a tackle and popped the b all out. It was snared by Kasey and t aken back 40 yards to the e nd zone and the extra point was scored by Taylor to bring the score to 13-0. The Rattlers responded and were able to get points on the board just before halftime. Going into the second half with a score of 13-7 and the Rattlers receiving the ball, they quickly capitalized and scored again, with a 2-point conversion to take the lead, 15-13. It became a defensive battle with the Eagles shutting down the Rattlers. Taylor was then able to get the ball to Kasey for another score, giving the Eagles the win, 19-15. The win moves them to the second round of the playoffs where they will face the firstseeded Lakeland Hurricanes. Coach Nick Baileys fifthseeded Varsity team took on the fourth-seeded Haines City Rattlers. Earlier in the season, the Eagles were defeated by the Rattlers 12-0 and the team was looking for redemption. The Rattlers won the toss and during their opening drive, Rafael Smith caused a fumble which was recovered by Tremaine Hawthorne and taken back 30 yards for a 6-0 lead. The Eagles offense, led by Christian Rivera, Rafael Smith and Tremaine Hawthorne, got a drive going but quickly met a strong Rattlers defense. The Eagles defense, led by Rodrigo Nolan, Nate Smith, Chris Nolan, Anthony Healy, Tyler Edwards and Jared Lasa, dug in deep and thwarted all the efforts of the Rattlers with key tackles made by Rodrigo, Rafael Smith and Hawthorne. This game became a defensive battle and went into halftime still at 6-0. The second half saw Lasa get an interception and key tackles made by Healy, Nate Smith and Hawthorne. The next drive for the Eagles saw Rafael Smith drive 30 yards for key first downs. Hawthorne then got around the end for his second touchdown of the day to take the lead 12-0. In the fourth quarter, the Rattlers broke free for a run, but Rafael Smith chased the runner down 50 yards to tackle him at the 20-yard line. The Eagles defense did not allow for a Rattlers score all day and was able to secure the win, 12-0, to move on to the second round of the playoffs. The Varsity team will be taking on the first-seeded Lakeland Patriots. The Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC) will be traveling to the second round of the Sunshine PALPlayoffs on Saturday, Nov. 9, in Auburndale at Westwood Middle School, Avenue G NWand 35th St NW, Winter Haven 33880.

As soon as we get a pproval, well hold a genera l meeting for anyone intere sted to attend and learn m ore about the club. Hopefully well get the c lub off the ground and have o ur first tournament in J anuary of 2014! REDS King of the Hill Well, we didnt get eight t eams signed up so we did n ot have enough teams to h old a King of the Hill T ournament as planned. Instead we held a Big B ass Tournament last S aturday on Lake Jackson a nd 13 fishermen showed up o n a foggy morning with r ain in the forecast to see w ho could catch the biggest b ass of the day. Weve been fishing Lake J ackson for the last 17 w eeks and only two fish h ave been weighed in over f ive pounds. Everyone has caught and r eleased dozens of bass 121 5 inches, but very few l unkers have surfaced. Big Bass tournaments are a lot of fun and instead of w eighing in threeor fivef ish limits; each fisherman w eighs in only one fish t heir biggest. At $25 a person, the jackpot was $325, all going to whoever caught the largest bass. I fished with Burt Watkins of Avon Park and we changed tactics to find that one fish that would win the tournament. Crankbaits, spinnerbaits, plastic worms and craws we used them all. Fishing in deeper water as well as the shoreline proved unsuccessful. We ended up with six or seven bass, two of which were the smallest Ive ever caught in a tournament. My biggest fish was a paltry 1.56 pounds. Burt failed to weigh in a fish. The fog finally burned off around 10 a.m., but the wind kicked up and by Noon, the dark clouds were closing in fast. We went back to the boat ramp around 12:30 p.m. to get the boat loaded up before the rain hit and we just made it. Others apparently had the same idea. We weighed the few fish that were brought in and after the final fish was weighed, Mike Woods was the winner with a bass weighing 2.60 pounds. This was by far, one of the lowest weight tournament weigh-ins Id ever seen. But all of the 13 guys who participated want to do it again so I guess were going to hold another Big Bass Tournament on Saturday, Dec. 7, on Lake Lotela. Anyone interested can pick up information at REDS II Tackle shop. To quote the old adage a bad day of fishing is still better than a good day at work seemed fitting. Someone mentioned a cold front and another said the barometer was falling. I heard someone else say the moon was in some special phase. Who knows why the fish developed lockjaw? It happens. Thats why they call it fishin and not catchin. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

Continued from B1 Fish tournament nets undersized winner varsity net, wasnt often tested as the Lady Brahmans attempted six shots on the night all handled with relative ease. Which means that Okeechobee attacks into the Sebring zone were rare occurances. The Blue Streaks, meanwhile, had 27 shot attempts, meaning the ball was heading toward the Brahman goal much more often. Okeechobees defense often proved strong, but the Sebring inexperience was seen as well, with many of the shot attempts not taken with quite the strength and assuredness that head coach Richie Birdsall would prefer. But it was the assured Peters who proved the difference maker as, late in the first half, after a handball call on the Brahmans, she powered in the goal that would decide the match. I think its early in the season and we have some kinks to work out but I felt good about the pressure we put on their team, assistant coach Jessica Bloemsma said. Im ready to see how they fare in district play. The team next has a Saturday morning match against Avon Park at home, beginning at 10 a.m. at Firemens Field, before heading into the district schedule next week. New district foe Poinciana comes to town Tuesday and the Streaks travel to Hardee Thursday Continued from B1 Soccer off to strong start Dan Hoehne/News-Su n Jazmin Gomez races to keep the ball from the sideline in Sebrings Tuesday win. Ashley White, Lydaliz Rodriguez and Michelle Tyson. The lead continued to grow in the third, with Wiley scoring eight of Sebrings 14 points to make it a 46-9 difference. With a running clock in the fourth quarter, Ileana Powell finished the Streaks scoring with a pair of free throws. In the tournament opener, earlier Tuesday evening, a young Lake Placid squad got itsfirst dose of oncourt competition but came up short against Lake Wales, 54-37. The Lady Dragons lost a lot of skill and size as veteran leaders Alex Coyne and Bria Wilson graduated, but they certainly showed a get after itattitude with their effort. After the much bigger Lady Highlanders took advantage of their size to roll out to a 17-2 lead after one, Lake Placid kicked up the defensive pressure and outscored Lake Wales 11-5 in the second quarter to make it a 22-13 game at the half. It was the continued tenacity and a series of baskets by Quiahja Williams that had the Dragons digging into the lead even more in the third, and had it at a six-point margin entering the fourth. But the Highlanders collected themselves over the final eight minutes and again utilized their advantage down low to halt any notion of a Lake Placid comeback. Still, it was a pleasing look at a Dragon squad that, while a work in progress, showed the effor t that will keep them in games under third-year head coach Jackie Coyne. The tournament conclud ed Thursday night as Sebring squared off with Lake Wales and Lake Placid faced Mulberry. See Sundays News-Sun for a recap of the action. Continued from B1 Hoops sees county split rf By The Associated PressAlook at five things to w atch as the Southeastern C onference enters Week 10 o f the season: Game of the Week No. 10 LSU at No. 1 A labama. The Western C onference showdown is s till must-see TVeven if the m atchup lost a little luster w hen the Tigers lost to M ississippi three weeks ago. LSU has one of the l eagues best passing attacks a nd needs a win to stay in t he division race. Undefeated Alabama looks a s formidable as ever, giving u p just 9.8 points per game. Alabama has given up 10 p oints or less in six straight g ames, including two s hutouts. Best matchup Vanderbilt WR Jordan M atthews against Floridas p ass defense. Matthews has been one of t he leagues best receivers t his year, catching 66 passes f or 890 yards and five touchd owns. Florida ranks fourth n ationally in pass efficiency d efense and will try to rattle Vanderbilt QB Patton Robinette, who is expected to make his second start in place of the injured Austyn Carta-Samuels. (Robinette) is young, so we have to make him more comfortable, Matthews said. The more we do that, the more hell continue to improve.Long shotIts easy to see why Auburn is a 7 1/2-point favorite over Tennessee. Auburn leads the SEC with 306.2 yards rushing per game, while Tennessee is allowing a league-high 201.7 yards rushing per game. But Tennessee has shown it can compete with quality teams when its playing at Neyland Stadium. In its last two home games, Tennessee lost 34-31 in overtime to Georgia and won 23-21 over No. 12 South Carolina.Inside the numbersTennessee hosts No. 7 Auburn on Saturday, which means the Volunteers will face a ranked opponent for the seventh time in an eightgame stretch. According to STATS LLC, Tennessee is the first team since Pittsburgh in 1993 to play seven ranked foes in an eight-game stretch within the same season. Georgias Aaron Murray has 113 career touchdown passes, one off the SEC record of 114 set by Danny Wuerffel, who played for Florida from 1993-96. Murray already owns SEC career records for passing yards (12,287) and total offense (12,591).Player to watchLSU QB Zach Mettenberger. The 6-foot-5 Mettenberger had one of his best games last season against the Tide, throwing for 298 yards and a touchdown in a 21-17 loss. The Tigers will need a similar performance on Saturday. I think our quarterback has to play well, LSU coach Les Miles said. I think we have to have balance, both run and pass, so that it becomes something that (Mettenberger) can do routinely or without having to make great plays. No. 10 LSU, No. 1 Alabama meet in SEC showdown


Special to the News-SunSEBRING November is National Hospice and Palliative Care Month,and Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care is joining hospices across the country in reaching out to raise awareness about important care issues for people coping with life-limiting illness. Every year,Cornerstone Hospice provides exceptional hospice care for more than 6,000 Central Floridians living with a lifelimiting illness,said Chuck Lee,CEO of Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care. Our highly-trained professionals and volunteers provide more than quality medical care. They work to make sure patients and families find dignity,respect,and love during lifes most difficult journey. Hospice is more than traditional healthcare. Hospice and palliative care programs provide pain management, symptom control,psychosocial support,and spiritual care to patients and their families when a cure is not possible. Hospice and palliative care combines the highest level of quality medical care with the emotional and spiritual support that families need most when facing the end of life. According to a nationwide Gallup survey conducted for the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization, nine out of 10 adults would prefer to be cared for at home rather than in a hospital or nursing home if diagnosed with a terminal illness. Last year in Highlands, Hardee,and Polk counties, more than 1,000 patients received home and facility hospice care from Cornerstones interdisciplinary team of doctors,nurses, nursing aides,social workers,chaplains and trained volunteers. Cornerstone Hospice Volunteer Specialist Dorothy L. Harris first experienced the benefits of hospice during her fathers illness years ago. My father had been diagnosed with terminal lung cancer. When hospice care began a sense of calm descended. The caregivers explained everything. They told me what to expect, offered advice on our options and ensured my father was comfortable. They made sense of the chaos. I never forgot what a blessing it was,said Harris,who lives in Sebring. Most people still dont realize how beneficial hospice can be for the whole family when a loved one faces a life-limiting illness. Far too often, hospice care is not initiated until very late in the disease process. Additionally,Cornerstone Hospice provides bereavement services to the community whether or not a persons loved one was in hospice care. Page B5 News-SunFriday, November 8, 2013 DR.

T .H.,Seattle,Wash. Answer:Avoid white! By t hat I mean white salt,white s ugar and white flour. The w hite flour is particularly o ffensive because it contains a compound known to harm a pancreas. The pancreas is t he gland you need for h ealthy blood sugar balance b ecause it secretes insulin. Let me back up to the p oint where wheat is growi ng on a farm,before it b ecomes flour. Special care i s taken to till and fertilize t he soil. The field was s prayed with various pestic ides,fungicides and other c hemicals to protect the harv est. About 83 active chemic als are used in pesticides t oday even though studies h ave shown that some cause c ancer in animals or humans. A nyway,when the wheat k ernels are harvested,worke rs keep an eye on the stora ge facilities to make sure e verything stays cool and d ry because we all know rainy,hot weather promotes fungal growth. Fungal contamination of grains is rather common. Once in you,its almost impossible to get out. The wheat kernels get stripped of their branand germlayer,a process which removes all the fiber, minerals and vitamins. Oddly enough,this flour may command a higher price than flour left in its natural state. The insanity has just begun. The naturally brown flour will now be whitened using a chemical similar to chlorine bleach. This chemical forms another substance called alloxan,which is known to destroy pancreatic function. Did you catch that? Alloxan is so outstanding at destroying the pancreas that researchers commonly use it in clinical trials to induce diabetes in lab animals. Bleached white flour is almost always contaminated with alloxan. Are you shocked? Are you wondering why? It happens because of strong demand from you,the consumer,who find pastries, buns,biscuits and bread much prettier when it is white. You cast your vote to continue the nonsense by buying white flour goodies. Ive always been puzzled at the name,All Purpose flour because to me,it doesnt even serve the primary purpose of food,which is to provide nutritional value,so I suggest it be renamed No Purposeflour. Regardless, combine alloxan-tainted white flour with nutritionally naked white sugar and table salt like many baked recipes call for,and you have a recipe for diabetes. In 2008,scientists closely examined how alloxan caused diabetes in animals. This article was published in Diabetologia and it was titled The mechanisms of alloxanand streptozotocininduced diabetes.The researchers stated,These hydroxyl radicals are ultimately responsible for the death of the beta cells, which have a particularly low antioxidative defence capacity,and the ensuing state of insulin-dependent 'alloxan diabetes.Simply put they are saying that free radicals are released,and these kill the pancreatic cells (which secrete insulin and lower blood sugar); the net result of alloxan keeps an animal insulin-dependent.

O ne day, a lthough t he weathe r was q uestiona ble,she s et out on her normal trek to t he elementary school. T hroughout the morning,the c louds began to form. As the a fternoon progressed,the w inds whipped up,along w ith thunder and lightning. M arys mother was conc erned that her daughter w ould be frightened as she w alked home from school. I n fact,the weather was so i ntense that the mother f eared the storm might harm h er child. As lightning was cutting a cross the sky,followed by l oud claps of thunder, M arys mother quickly got i nto her car and drove along t he route that her daughter w ould take home from s chool. She found Mary in t he process of walking h ome,but at each flash of l ightning,the child would s top,look up,and smile. M ore lightning flashed; more t hunder rolled. And,each t ime,the girl stopped, l ooked at the streak of light, a nd smiled. Finally,the mother called l ittle Mary over to the car a nd asked,What are you l ooking at,and why are you s miling?The child a nswered,God keeps taking p ictures of me. Many people fear the f uture,because they are u nsure about what awaits t hem. However,just like the l ittle girl who was not afraid o f the storm,one does not h ave to fear what lies ahead. A ctually,to the Christian, t he future is greatly anticipated. It holds opportunities to obey Jesus Christ more, and it holds eternal life for all those who do. Concerning Jesus,Hebrews 5:9 reads,And having been made perfect,He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvation. Paul wrote to some Christians in Philippians 1:21-24,For to me,to live is Christ and to die is gain. But if I am to live on in the flesh,this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose. But I am hard-pressed from both directions having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better; yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake.Paul loved serving Jesus,and he did so at every occasion,but he looked forward to the time when he would be with his Savior in Heaven forever. He knew that Christ was with him while he was a part of this world,yet Paul desired even more the closeness of being with Christ in the world to come. We each are given the opportunity to follow Christ in this life. By doing so,we look forward to being blessed now and in the hereafter. That means the obedient child of God can look forward to Heaven with confidence. 1 John 4:17 reads, By this,love is perfected with us,so that we may have confidence in the day of judgment; because as He is, so also are we in this world.Fear or confidence?

Snapshots By MARK SHERMAN Associated PressWASHINGTON The Supreme Court is wrestling with the appropriate role for religion in government in a case involving prayers at the start of a New York towns council meetings. The justices engaged in a lively give-and-take Wednesday that highlighted the sensitive nature of offering religious invocations in public proceedings that dont appeal to everyone and of governmentsefforts to police the practice. The court is weighing a federal appeals court ruling that said the Rochester suburb of Greece,N.Y., violated the Constitution because nearly every prayer in an 11-year span was overtly Christian. The tenor of the argument indicated the justices would not agree with the appellate ruling. But it was not clear what decision they might come to instead. Greece is being backed by the Obama administration and many social and religious conservative groups in arguing that the court settled this issue 30 years ago when it held that an opening prayer is part of the nation's fabric and not a violation of the First Amendment. Some of those groups want the court to go further and get rid of legal rules that tend to rein in religious expression in the public sphere. On the other side are the two town residents who sued over the prayers and the liberal interest groups that support them. Greece residents Susan Galloway and Linda Stephens say they and others who attend the meetings are a captive audience and should not be subjected to sectarian prayers. At its broadest,the outcome could extend well beyond prayer and also affect holiday displays,aid to religious schools,Ten Commandments markers and memorial crosses. More narrowly,the case could serve as a test of the viability of the decision in Marsh v. Chambers,the 1983 case that said prayer in the Nebraska Legislature did not violate the First Amendments clause barring laws respecting an establishment of religion,known as the Establishment Clause. In Greece,every meeting was opened with a Christian-oriented inv ocation from 1999 through 2007,and again from January 2009 through Jun e 2010. In 2008,after Galloway and Stephens complained,four of 12 mee tings were opened by non-Christians, including a Jewish layman,a Wiccan priestess and the chairman of the local Bahai congregation. The two residents filed suit and a trial court ruled in the towns favor, finding that the town did not intentionally exclude non-Christians. It also said that the content of the prayer was not an issue because there was no desire to proselytize or demean other faiths. But a three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that even with the high court's 1983 ruling,the practice of having one Christian prayer after another amoun ted to the town's endorsement of Christianity. The case is Greece v. Galloway,12 696. Supreme Court hears case on legislative prayer


By JOCELYN NOVECK APNational WriterEver since she burst onto t he scene in Atonement, p laying a girl with an overl y fertile imagination in a p erformance that earned her a n Oscar nod at age 13, S aoirse Ronan has been one o f the most interesting y oung faces on the big s creen. Her precocious, quirky a nd intelligent look, almost l ike a pre-teen Meryl S treep, has evolved now i nto a more mature beauty, a nd the actress, now 19, r emains just as interesting t o watch, if not more so. Her latest film, the posta pocalyptic How I Live N ow, based on the 2004 y oung adult novel by Meg R osoff, feels something like The Hunger Games sprink led with a liberal dose of Pretty in Pink or any b asic teen coming-of-age s tory. Like in Atonement, t he personal journey u nfolds in the shadow of w orld war only here, its n ot World War II. No, its World War III, w hich begins almost immed iately after Daisy, a selfa bsorbed young American w ith bleached-blond hair, f ashionably ripped black t ights and plenty of eye m akeup, arrives in Britain, s ent by her father to spend t he summer with distant c ousins in the country. S hes not thrilled. When f riendly cousin Isaac (a s weet Tom Holland) fetches h er at the airport, the first t hing she does is mock his a ccent. At the ramshackle count ry home, Daisy imposes h er rules on everyone e lse; she doesnt eat wheat o r cows cheese, because i ts gross. Invited out fishi ng, she sniffs: I dont f ish. But its not hard to see t hat behind the icy veneer l ies raging insecurity shes a teenager! and in any case her rules will change fast once she gets to know her handsome older cousin Edmond (George MacKay, appealing in a stoic way). Edmond, or Eddie, can tame hawks, and pretty quickly tames Daisy. Theres not much buildup here: Daisy goes from haughty to goo-goo eyed, and soon shes in a fullfledged love affair. Meanwhile, the world is convulsing. Anuclear explosion in London kills thousands and coats the idyllic countryside with white nuclear dust a scene hauntingly portrayed by skilled director Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland) and cinematographer Franz Lustig. Soon the countrys operating under brutal martial law. Purposely, basic questions whos in charge? whos doing what, to whom? are left unanswered. Clearly this is a choice by director Macdonald to focus the drama squarely on Daisy and her emotional journey. But sometimes its an uncomfortable mix. Millions are dying, and were worrying about one young womans romantic yearnings, and slowly emerging self-esteem? In any case, girls are soon separated from boys, and Daisy and her youngest cousin, Piper (Harley Bird), are shipped off to forced labor. In a desperate effort to return home to the others (and especially Eddie), Daisy learns just how fierce she can be. It will take a grueling trek for many miles, under threat of rape by marauding gangs, or worse. Macdonalds at his best in the scenes evoking whats happening to a collapsing country (and perhaps, the planet.) On a more intimate scale, there are a few genuinely moving moments. Then again, theres some unnecessarily banal dialogue. Theres a clear message here: Sometimes it takes extraordinary circumstances to realize it, but we all have the capacity to shed our petty concerns and focus on the greater good. (Even if you have to eat Spam to survive an apocalypse.) Plus, even the neediest of us can step up, when necessary, and care for others. That will resonate best for a teen audience, but heres the rub: The movie is rated R for its violence and occasional language. But is this really something harder to stomach than the PG-13 rated Hunger Games? And will the rating be keeping out the audience that would most readily respond Rating: R (violence, disturbing images, language and some sexuality) Running time: 101 minutes Review: ( of 4) DearAbby: I am a 25y ear-old woman with a food a llergy. Last year I was a g uest at a Thanksgiving dinn er where the host insisted I c ould eat the food since t here was just a little in t here. I understand that making s eparate food is difficult, b ut all I ask is that people l et me know if a dish cont ains an ingredient that will m ake me sick. At best, an a llergic reaction is uncomf ortable. At worst, it can be l ife-threatening. Would you please print a m essage about allergy a wareness before the holid ays? If you do, perhaps s omeone will be spared w hat I went through. Not P icky, Really Allergic in I llinois DearReally Allergic: I m glad to raise awareness b ecause every year there is a t least one story in the m edia about some poor i ndividual winding up in an e mergency room or dying b ecause of an allergic react ion. Exposure to even a t race of a substance that an i ndividual is allergic to is d angerous because just a l ittle can hurt you. The symptoms of a p otentially fatal allergic r eaction which have a ppeared in this column b efore are a tingling sens ation, itching or metallic t aste in the mouth followed b y hives, a sensation of w armth, asthma symptoms, s welling of the mouth and t hroat area, difficulty b reathing, vomiting, diarr hea, cramping, a drop in b lood pressure and loss of consciousness. The symptoms can occur in as few as five to 15 minutes after exposure, but lifethreatening reactions may progress over several hours. Someone experiencing these symptoms should be treated at the nearest emergency room or hospital. This information was provided by Food Allergy Research and Education, an organization whose mission is to raise public awareness about food allergies, provide education and advance research. Its website is loaded with valuable information on this important subject. Check it out at DearAbby: Last week I attended two events for my grandchildren. One was a school concert, the other a dance recital. Both times, during the performance I saw electronic devices turned on throughout the audience. It seemed that parents were encouraging children to play video games, watch movies or surf the Internet instead of pay attention to the show. It drove me crazy. What are these parents teaching their children? Not only are they missing out on the experience, but they are also being taught terrible manners. I held my tongue, but it was a struggle because I wanted to slap the parents in the back of the head. (Im old school.) Am I wrong? Holding My Tongue DearHolding: No, youre 100 percent right. Before many performances, the director or principal will request that electronic devices be turned off. That's what should have been done at the concert and recital you attended. Parents who allow or encourage their children to behave this way aren't doing their job, which is to teach them to be respectful of the performers and the effort that was put into the show.
