Investigators tight-lipped on Council shooting No new info on death of former homecoming king Council By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Highlands Countys recycling effort took another step forwa rd Tuesday evening as county commission ers voted to allow County Administrator June Fisher to begin negotiations with Progressive Waste Solutions for a curbside recycling program. Florida statutes require that counties under 100,000 population have a goal to meet, County Engineer Ramon Gavarette told commissioners. Once the county reaches the 100,000 population level, that goal becomes a mandate. Once that happens, should the county be below the mandate, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection gets involved. Gavarette said Highlands County currently has a voluntary program, where residents may bring rec yclable materials to a collection box central location point. He said that program has not been as successful as had been hoped. Anew proposal by Progressive officials would give the county a number of options. One would be garbage collection with recycling every week; another County takes step toward recycling Fisher Gavarette Fisher to begin negotiations with waste company By SAMANTHAGHOLAR samantha.gholar@newssun.comSEBRING Whether it comes from a parent or a friend, guidance is something every child needs.

The campaign started Nov. 1 and will continue through Feb. 4. The idea behind the campaign is as simple as its slogan Real men mentor. Vazquez hopes to light a spark in the hearts of local community members to step up to the plate to help aid in the lives of local children.

Community Briefs By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING After a rebuke by a Highlands County commissioner, members of the board Tuesday night agreed to look at the potential of entertaining a resolution that might reject propositions having to do with Agenda 21. The Agenda 21 program refers to an action plan of the United Nations regarding sustainable development. While some believe that the product of the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development simply is an action agenda to solve the problems of today, others contend it promotes the reinvention of government through the support of, and appointments to, regional boards that act like Soviet councils. Resident Dale Pflug again brought the issue to the commission hinging his remarks on the issue of private property rights. Across the country, federal and state governments including big non-governmental organizations are taking control of ever larger amounts of land, he said. Pflug cited Nevada, where 90 percent of land is now owned by government, and said Florida is approaching 30 percent of property that is owned and operated by government bodies. According to the office of Property Appraiser Raymond McIntyre, 24 percent of Highlands County is owned by the military, forests, parks, schools, colleges, the county and the state. He also charged that groups like the Central Florida Regional Planning Council have no direct accountability to the citizenry, but are responsible for setting plans for vast areas of the Sunshine State. Ever-increasing regulations are placing restrictions on land use, such as the drawing of flood plain maps, he noted. They limit the use of the land and often result in dramatic increases in insurance costs for the property owner. Pflug said that one of his greatest concerns is the sale of development rights to third parties. Comments on government-controlled easements had drawn the ire of Commissioner Jim Brooks at the boards Nov. 5 meeting. That discussion revolved around the sale of easements to the government. through the Nature Conservancy, of properties surrounding the Avon Park Air Force Range. The Central Florida Regional Planning Council is not an arm of Agenda 21. They are not part of some conspiracy. They are acting as the administrator between the Department of Defense, who asked them to get involved. The state of Florida and the federal government are acquiring easements around military installations so those military installation s can continue to employ peo ple and function as they are supposed to without the encroachment of development, Brooks said at the time. Pflug said his remarks Tuesday night were not abo ut easements sold around the Bombing Range, but rather was a plea for the commission to stand on constitutional principals and to rejec t such proposals in the future . He also asked for an inve ntory of land in Highlands County owned by governmental entities, controlled b y governmental agencies, non governmental entities or under easement restrictions. While not addressing the issue of compiling such an inventory, commissioners di d respond to the possibility of looking at a resolution, asking for other such measures passed by other municipal bodies. It might be worthwhile t o at least get examples of suc h and get some opinions from our staff as to what their thoughts are on it, Don Elwell said. Commission Chairman Greg Harris agreed, and instructed Assistant County Administrator Randy Vosbu rg to gather the information an d bring it back to the commissioners at a December meet ing.

By PHILATTINGER phil.attinger@newssun.comSEBRING While investigating a year-old burglary, sheriffs deputies reported that a man living nearby not only had left fingerprints, he had pawned the stolen items. Jason Dusseault, 36, of 7424 Valencia Road in Sebring, is now facing charges of burglary of an unoccupied dwelling, grand theft, dealing in stolen property and false representation of ownership to a pawnbroker. The burglary took place sometime between 7:30 p.m. Oct. 23 and 8:39 a.m. Oct. 24, 2012, at an apartment in the same complex where Dusseault lives, according to Highlands County Sheriffs Office arrest reports. The victim reported two items stolen: a 32-inch flat screen Vizio television valued at $400 and a Blu-Ray video player valued at $150. Latent fingerprints found on the outside of her sliding glass doors were later identified as Dusseaults after sheriffs detectives checked with a local pawnbroker and found Dusseault had put his thumbprint on a pawn ticket for the two items on Oct. 27, 2012. Detectives also examined stored accounts on the player, and found stored Internet video and audio accounts with user names that matched the victim. When asked about the fingerprints, Dusseault explained how they got the re by saying he had walked by the neighbors apartment an d saw the door open, so he shut it for her. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, December 1, 2013 Page A3 Martial Arts; 3.639"; 4"; Black; -; Cardiology Associates; 5.542"; 5"; Process color; -; Chateau Elan; 5.542"; 10.5"; Process color; -; By PHILATTINGER phil.attinger@newssun.comAVON PARK Council m embers voted 4-0 Monday t o table any discussion of c hanging the city fire a ssessment until their next m eeting Dec. 9. Until then Deputy Mayor B renda Giles wants to hear w hat residents think about t he proposed new plan. At least one was heard M onday. George Hall, local p astor and former city c ouncilman, said his assessm ent would go up $100 b ecause he has more than $ 150,000 in improvements o n his property. City Manager Julian D eleon said thats the e xception. Most property o wners would see a drop. Deleon said the current s ystem covers 75 percent of t he fire department cost and a ssesses based on zoning a nd the demand for servi ce a parcel would genera te. Adifferent method prop osed Monday by Chris R oe of Bryant Miller Olive P .A. legal firm would base a ssessments on the cost of m aintaining the fire departm ents readiness to serve. I t would get the city away f rom reviewing statistics of e mergency calls and adjusti ng assessments every three t o four years based on that, D eleon said. It would have two tiers. T ier 1 would charge a flat r ate of $40 for every lot, d eveloped or not, with a m aximum possible fee of $ 234 per lot and a maxim um revenue of $1.03 mill ion. Tier 2 would be a $1.68 c harge per $1,000 of a ssessed property value on e ach lot, he said, which is t he highest the city could g o, for a maximum revenue $ 479,310. As proposed, the two t iers would raise half of the f ire departments $1.3 mill ion annual budget, Deleon s aid. The real impact is to y our empty lots, Deleon s aid. At last count, he said, the c ity has 4,416 total parcels, w hether developed or not. Other properties that h ave seen a financial burd en would get a break, he s aid: apartment complexes, m obile home parks, nursing h omes and churches. Under the current system, e very dwelling unit is a ssessed $165, which has to b e adjusted every three to f our years based on the n umber of calls dwellings r eceive. Crystal Lake Golf Club soon to be annexed has 513 dwellings, which at $165 each would cost landowner Mink L.L.C. $84,545, plus the assessment on the clubhouse, Deleon said. Under the new system, the landowner would pay less: $2,052 in flat rates for all dwellings, plus $40 each for any empty lots and $1.68 for every $1,000 of improvements. Roe said the advantages of a fire assessment versus tax revenue is that its designated specifically for the fire service and has no homestead or legal exemptions: Everyone pays something. He told the city council that if they decide to change the method of calculating the assessment, thats considered a new assessment and has to go through the same publicly-noticed series of workshops and hearings as the one approved 10 years ago. Roe said the readiness method assumes that all property owners benefit in some way, whether through improved property values, lower insurance rates or just peace of mind. Hall said the city established a fire assessment because the fire department needed trucks with ladders tall enough to reach local tall buildings. He suggested the city not worry about the current assessment or look to reduce the fire assessment by raising property tax rates. If were scared of getting sued, dont be. (Weve) not been sued in 10 years, Hall said. Councilman Parke Sutherland, an attorney, begged to differ. I dont agree with Pastor (George) Hall that we wont get sued because we havent. (We) need to be careful, Sutherland said. Giles said she liked the new proposed method of assessment, while Mayor Sharon Schuler would like to keep the current system and just set lower rates for everyone. Councilman Garrett Anderson said someone would end up paying more, whether the city council adjusts the current assessment, tries a new one or raises taxes. Its less abrasive to keep what youve got, Anderson said. Whatever decision they make, Roe advised council members to decide in time to start having hearings in January and February if they want to change the assessment.

Sure, there are bargains. But getting your hands on them requires a couple of things: Getting to the store well before the sun comes up, and battling crowds of people for those bargains. I very rarely get up before the sun (there has to be a really good reason for such an atrocity) and large crowds of people tend to make me jumpy. I know there are people who see Black Friday as a challenge and an opportunity. More power to them. Unless they have something I want really, really badly really, really cheap (say an iPad for $50) I would rather sleep through it, thank you very much. But some retailers are no longer content to wait for Black Friday to entice shoppers into their stores. Theyve come up with something new enticing shoppers to come in on Thanksgiving Day itself. I am not kidding. According to an article in Wednesdays News-Sun, a number of local stores are going to open their doors on Thanksgiving with the hope of bringing in customers ready to part with their hard-earned cash. For example, Kmart plans to be open at 6 a.m. Thanksgiving Day. Afew other stores at the mall, such as Sears and JC Penney, will open at 8 p.m. that evening, with the mall overall opening at 6 a.m. Friday. Walmart, as far as I know, isnt closing at all. (Note: I realize as you read this it has all already happened. I am typing this on Wednesday, when this is all still in the future. For now, just ignore my verb tenses as we go merrily along.) Curious, I posed a couple of questions on my Facebook page. What stores overall would be open Thanksgiving, and did any of my friends plan to go shopping on that day? I got a number of responses. One person made a point of telling me of some store chains that would not be open Thanksgiving. Everyone denied that they planned to shop on that day though one friend confessed that shed found herself having to shop on Thanksgiving Days in the past when shed realized shed forgo tten, as she put it, a critic al menu item. I totally rela te to that comment, having had to make an emergency run to the grocery store myself during some past holiday meal preparations. Acouple of people thought that the outcry over Thursday shopping was overblown. Why shouldnt people spend the time shopping if they wan ted to? Others felt that it was wrong to make employees work on a holiday, especially one that people usually spent with family and friends. I will admit to tremendously mixed feelings on the whole thing. I am grateful for people in essential services, such as health care, law enforcement, and firefighting who are giving up part of their holiday to work. And if Don or I have to make an emergency run to a groce ry store to pick up something we forgot to get for dinner I will be thankful for the store being open. And I certainly dont want to tell people how to spend their holiday. If shopping floats your boat, then go for it. Even on Thanksgiving, assuming you can move after ingesting huge amounts of turkey, dressing, and mashed potatoes. But somehow, I have to admit that I dont like the fact that a day that is supposed to be focused on counting our blessings and being with loved ones is becoming just another excuse for a sale. However you chose to spend Thanksgiving, I hop e you found a lot to be thankful for. I know one thing I am grateful for are all of you readers out there you are a pleasure to write for. May we recall our blessings as we careen into the holiday season. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Dont be a spectator E ditor: We have turned our worship of God i nto a spectator sport, not a true wors hip pleasing to God. We should look f orward to worship service and our fell owship with other, worship in spirit a ndtruth. When we gather together on t he Lords Day it is not meant for us to b e entertained by a minister or others. W e are as much involved as the minist er by paying attention to what he says f rom the Bible. Giving thanks and learning are both p arts of our worship. If a tramp stagg ers in and lies down in the last pew a nd sleeps through the worship service w e do not say that he worshiped just b ecause he was present for the service. A n atheist might attend your service, b ut does he worship? Many of us do not sing because we c annot carry a tune. Our thoughts m ight be on the weather and what a n ice day for golf, fishing, or the roast i n the oven. What a brother or sister is w earing. How long will he speak today. T he trip planned this afternoon or who w e may visit this afternoon. This form of spectator is just as p leasing to God as the drunk asleep in t he pew. Colossians3:16 Let the word o f Christ dwell in you richly in all wisd om; teaching and admonishing one a nother in psalms and hymns and spirit ual songs, singing with grace in your h earts to the Lord. When we are worshipping we are as m uch a part of the service as the men w aiting on the Lords table. Types of worship that can be found i n the Bible as acceptable worship; p rayer giving, singing, The Lords S upper, the apostles doctrine teaching. T hese are the pleasing types for God. Y ou can find other worship that is not p leasing to God such as ignorant wors hip, or vain worship. When we study o ur Bible, let us do this prayerfully w ith love that we may worship pleasing t o God, (private worship) that is done a nytime. Serve God acceptably with revere nce and godly fear. If we do not get a nything from worship, we must unders tand that true worship is a giving e xperience, not just a receiving experie nce. God does not like idle worship on our part.Going to worship does not make us a Christian any more than standing in the kitchen makes us a cook. Chapman Chamberlin SebringBetter Breathers a blessingEditor: I am fortunate enough to go to the Better Breathers Club at Florida Hospital Heartland. Our instructor is Carol. It is part of Floridas Hospitals Community Education. The information received is invaluable. We are also treated to a healthy lunch. I want to thank Carol and Florida Hospital for making breathing easier and putting a smile on our faces. I also want to pass something else on. Acouple of Sundays ago I decided to make myself a decent lunch. I stood at the gas stove adding ingredients to a pan. Then I froze. I had my oxygen on and the tubing was five inches from the flame. I remember my propane company saying dont cook while using oxygen. I shut off the flame and backed out of the kitchen. I took the oxygen off and there on my oxygen supply is the sign I see every day No Smoking (flame). Oxygen in Use. I finished my cooking sans oxygen.

Johnson was professional in appearance and precision in presenting the National Colors. Many kudos to these talented young people from Highlands county. As chairperson of the Empty Bowls Luncheon, I personally wish to thank the following individuals who contributed greatly to the success of the Empty Bowls Luncheon: Rich Hetherton, Mary Foy, Carol Bogdan, Judy Jordon and her granddaughter, Elizabeth, Gail Escobar and her son, Anthony, Barbara Cook, Kevin Butler, my right-hand man. To anyone that I have inadvertently omitted, my sincerest apologies. Thank you again, and we look forward to celebrating our Fifth Annual Empty Bowls Luncheon with you next year. Marjorie Blanda Chairperson Empty Bowls Luncheon In short, Avon Park is p oised to build on its p rogress. As 2013 begins to wind d own, the News-Sun urges A von Parks City C ouncil/Community R edevelopment Agency to b egin investing in that p rogress. Of course new restaurants a nd stores are welcome and n ecessary, but the city needs t o think bigger and broader i f it is to attract more visit ors and investors. For example, every year several publications list the 100 most livable cities in the world. The selections are based on a list of criteria from public education to public transportation. Each index measures culture, environment and recreation. Highlands County has great natural beauty and a wide array of outdoor activities from excellent fishing lakes to fine golf courses and up-to-date team sport complexes. We also have something of a cultural foundation to build on. For example, South Florida State College and the three historical societies each has a museum and there are more unusual places to visit like Tobys Clown Museum in Lake Placid, the Military Sea Services Museum, and the Childrens Museum in Sebring. We think the Heartland Cultural Alliances proposed art museum for the second floor of the Avon Parks Community Center at 310 W. Main Street is the next natural step. The city is most fortunate to have been offered a permanent display the works of Peter Powell Roberts, a nationally known, local artist. It is fortunate, too, that the HCAwill organize and maintain the collection. In fact, the only thing the city has to do is come up with the $35,000 needed to repair and upgrade the space. The city has the money, but it we hope the council members dont lack the imagination and courage to spend it. They will hardly be alone if that happens. Too often elected officials across the country make choices as if they were running profit making organizations. But cities are not companies designed to make money. They are habitats and communities the places we live. Successful city leaders understand the focus should on enriching communities and raising the quality of life. Here is a opportunity to do just that. We hope Avon Park grabs the chance. APshould say yes to museum A von Park has made tremendous financial progress by streamlining policies, downsizing staff and c utting redundancies and waste. At the s ame time, it has increased revenues t hrough annexations and new utility cust omers.

The program was put in place for the first time last year, Deleon said, and seemed to be very successful since most of the staff participated in it. Deleon said later in the week that he considers the program a win-win. Its a win for the city because it reduced the citys liability to pay out accrued vacation and sick-time when an employee leaves, he said. Meanwhile, each employee gets muchneeded year-end cash. Deleon also said he would have to work the program through union leadership among employees, but expected it would be accepted. In other business, the city council allowed Crystal Lake Golf Club residents to speak or ask questions about a pending annexation of the manufactured home park. However, a representative for the residents said they appreciated getting the opportunity, but had no questions. Mink L.L.C. owns Crystal Lake and signed a covenant when the city bought the onsite water utility in 2010 to annex the community into the city once the property became contiguous with city limits, park manager Tami Martin said. Two annexations in March this year 2661 Lake Denton Road and 2952 Grove Ave. brought the city limits to Crystal Lake. Deleon has said formal annexation hearings are set for the regular December meetings: Dec. 9 and 23. Still, he wanted to allow for public participation throughout November. If the city annexes, as planned, Crystal Lake would add approximately 850 more residents in 513 home sites, Martin said. Of those residents, slightly less than half are seasonal residents. The city did annex 14.8 acres of land owned by Lake Byrd L.L.C. undeveloped lots on the north end of Lake Byrd, located just northwest of the city along U.S. 27. The city council also voted to rezone 7 Lassiter St. so its zoning would conform to its current and historic use as an auto repair shop and also revoked the fee from the citys permit for having rental property in the city limits. Both Mayor Sharon Schuler and Sutherland were sworn into office since their re-election. The city council chose Councilwoman Brenda Giles to continue in the post of deputy mayor.

We were pretty busy yesterday. We did well, said Rhonda Barnes, owner of Brighton at 113 Circle Park Dr. Barnes and her store associates were busy straightening displays and waiting on customers just after 10 a.m. Saturday. One customer, Jane Bayless, made a purchase while in store helping to support the Small Business Saturday campaign. Over at Gene Brenners Pottery and Fine Art Gallery, shop attendants helped customers find just what they were looking for to kick off the holiday shopping season on a much smaller scale. Couple Suzi and Chip Hennessey checked out a few items in Brenners while having a little bit of fun in downtown Sebring. The couple were working on the Heartland Holiday Festivals monthlong Scavenger Hunt contest, which puts potential customers in eight of the Circle stores to answer questions that can qualify participants for a vacation. Were out doing the scavenger hunt. We just moved downtown about a month ago because we love it so much, Suzi said. Husband Chip finds the local shops much more appealing than the big corporations that draw thousands of customers regularly. We definitely do not do Black Friday. No, no. Were downtown folks. We like the small shops, we like shopping here. Brenners is one of our favorites, Chip said. Suzi stated that Galleria 301 is another of the downtown, small business shops that the two frequent when spending extra cash. Frank and Kaye Pytlowany split their time between big holiday sales and Small Business Saturday shopping. The couple stated that they werent out looking for anything special but enjoyed the downtown shops. Black Friday, yes we do it, but we like the small businesses, too, Frank said. Brenner store clerk Darian Dumont said that the holiday season is always a busy time at Brenners. We did okay yesterday (Black Friday). Acouple of items were sold, but we love those who come out and support the small businesses on Saturday, Dumont said. Brenners clerks were hoping for a big day of sales following the slow start Saturday morning. Several downtown merchants remained open throughout the day Saturday hoping to entice passers-by taking in the downtown holiday festivities into their shop doors for new items this holiday season. The holiday schedule varies for each downtown merchant. Business inform ation can be found by logging onto www.downtownsebring.org/.

A t hird option would be to o ffer garbage collection once a week with recycling coll ection each week as well. Another variable would be t he provision of recycling c arts. One option would h ave Progressive offer that s ervice, while the other w ould put the county in c harge of the carts. Additionally, Progressive w ould take over operation of t he countys the recycling c enter as well as the semia nnual collection of haza rdous and e-waste. Gavarette said that under t he proposal, the most e xpensive option would involve a $2.89 increase per month, per household, while the least expensive option would be a $1.33 per month per household hike. The proposed 10-year pact also provides that Progressive would not be responsible for tipping fees for collected recyclable goods and yard waste would be collected every other week with bulk collection once a month. They also want the performance bid reduced from $5 million to $1 million, Gavarette said. He told commissioners the market for recyclables isnt what it once was. While the average market value in October 2011 put it at $159 per ton, it now has dropped back, with most recent figures at about $89 per ton. Its a supply-and-demand thing. The more there is in the market, the lower the price will be. We havent seen it break the $100 per ton mark for a while, he said. The proposal still would put Highlands at the low end for collection assessments at $155 per year. That would be at or below the current charges of the municipalities in Highlands and any of the neighboring counties. Under current guidelines, Highlands should be recycling at a 40 percent rate, with that number to go to 50 percent next year. Adjusted rates under the current voluntary program, Gavarette said, are about 16 percent. Continued from A1 Metro Highlands County officials are in negotiations to start a curbside recycling program.

u pwards of 50 are boys, V azquez said. Unfortunately, with the l ack of volunteers, Vazquez h as had to cross-match some o f the children in the prog ram, pairing males with f emale Bigs. We cant pair males with g irls but we can put a female w ith a boy Little. We are f ocusing on getting men. It is h ard to find men willing to v olunteer their time, V azquez said. BBBS may be in need of m ore solid, strong male volu nteers but that doesnt mean t he organization doesnt a lready have a few great p airings. Vazquez named several B ig-Little pairings that have b een very successful, one of w hich is a perfect match in m any peoples opinion. Pastor George Miller and h is Little, 10-year-old Fred W ild Elementary student C ornelius Douse, have been p aired together for a year a nd a half. Miller came into t he program at the request of c ongregation members Roxie a nd Hardrick McMillon who h ave been active members of t he community for some t ime. They approached me and s aid that they think it was s omething I should look into d oing and that they would b ack me and support me all t he way, Miller said. After an extensive interv iew and background check, M iller was given the goa head to be paired with a L ittle. I was lucky, its a lengthy p rocess normally. Since I k new the McMillons it was a b it easier for me. They asked t he parents many questions s o it does take a while. They d ont want to match a person w ith a Little and the parents n ot be comfortable with that p erson. They (BBBS) dont m ess around, Miller said. When the process was f inally done, Miller met his L ittle for the first time at B ooks-A-Million for hot c hocolate and a little book e xploring. He enjoyed it so much. W hats interesting about C ornelius is he is always so t hankful, humble and apprec iative. The second time we m et we were going to go to B ooks-A-Million again but t he Halloween store was o pen next door so we spent a n hour or two just wanderi ng around there. He was so f ascinated with the costumes a nd make up. He enjoys all t hings, big and small, Miller s aid. Recently, Miller has been s haring his love of theater a nd performance with his L ittle by bringing Douse to H ighlands Little Theater prod uctions of which Miller is a p art of. Sundays show of Little Shop of Horrorsproved to be a fantastic time for Douse. The elementary student had only seen one play prior to being a special guest at HLT. He came to see me at the theater. He even had the chance to usher on Sunday. We let him watch from backstage and he sat in the lighting booth. He got to raise the line during one scene to lower some props ... Hes very extroverted. He enjoys doing a little bit of everything. Hes respectful and friendly; he doesnt take anything for granted, Miller said. Cornelius recognizes that this (HLT) is something very special to me so he enjoys it more. He likes doing things together. Hes even expressed interest in trying out. Millers Little also shares a great deal of his favorite things with his Big, adding a little something extra to the relationship. Hes a big athlete and he loves football. I know nothing about the sport so when we watch football together he has to explain to me whats going on. Cornelius enjoys that as well; its not just about me. He is giving me something and teaching me something, Miller said. Miller and Douse spend a fair amount of time with one another throughout the months. BBBS only requires Bigs to spend four to six hours a month for community based program participants and one hour each week for school-based program participants. Miller stated that he and Douse hang out approximately three days a month. The pair have plans to visit Disneys Hollywood Studios and more HLTexperiences. Vazquez stated that Miller is one of the biggest role models in the organization currently. Hes been one of the very active Bigs weve had. He does a lot with Cornelius. He takes him to the beach, to the theme parks, to games and sometimes they just do simple stuff, Vazquez said. Big Brother Miller has many years experience with disadvantaged youth of all backgrounds, ethnicities, mental capacities, and circumstances and knows that the most important thing for the children is the time, not the activity. I think its important for men to understand that children need strong, positive, safe, and healthy role models. They (BBBS) dont require that much of you and the kids are not expecting huge fireworks, they just want and need someone there who validates them and spends time with them, Miller said. Weve grown past just a big and a little. Were friends. The Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast is actively seeking new volunteers to serve as mentors to local youth. The 100 Men in 100 Days campaign is a great way for men in the community to be a part of a young boys life, to create positive and memorable experiences and teach new things. We of course are accepting women but our main focus right now is getting more men, more mentors out here with these young boys, Vazquez said. There are two options available for pairings a school based program and community based program. The school-based program allows bigs and littles to visit with one another during school hours to become acquainted with one another and may be more suitable for busier individuals. The community based program allows a bit more independence for bigs to interact with youth through trips, events, outings or anything the parent has deemed permissible for the child to participate in. For more information on becoming a part of the organization, contact Vazquez at the BBBS office at 402-9001.

Thanks to a tool that allows teachers to communicate instantaneously about whats happening at school, parents can monitor their youngstersconduct via smartphone throughout the day. Several Flagler and Volusia county teachers use Class Dojo, a free website and app where students receive points for good behavior or lose points for misdeeds. Class Dojo was created using $75,000 from the 2011 Citi Innovation in Education Prize, awarded to entrepreneurs who use technology to help educators. Hundreds of thousands of teachers worldwide now use Class Dojo, according to the website. Class Dojo is among a growing number of educational apps more than 40,000 are available for the iPad alone. One teacher who uses Class Dojo, Christina Claudio, said the program brings out her students competitive streaks because they want to earn more points they can redeem for free incentives, like using the teachers rolling desk chair or sitting with a friend for the day. This generation of students, I feel, loves anything thats gamified if it feels like a game, theyre in, said Claudio, who teaches fourth-grade at Pine Trail Elementary in Ormond Beach. To help students feel more accountable, Claudio allowed them to customize their avatars, little icons that represent each student. Class Dojo ranks also include fifthand sixthgrade teachers at Rymfire Elementary in Palm Coast. On a recent morning, sixthgrade teacher Janie Ruddy compared the thickness of the earths atmosphere to the skin on an apple and asked students to find out, using their iPads, which gases comprise that layer. During that activity, Ruddy asked Daijah, 11, to use her teachers iPhone to add points for two students who shared their answers with the class and deduct a point for a boy who wasnt staying on task. Parents of those students, if they were logged on at the time, coul d find out right away whether their students earned or lost points and why. At the start of the school year, Ruddy said she sent 41 invitations to parents detailing how to sign up for Class Dojo and track their students progress, and 37 accepted. Before, as a teacher, you really only had time to call home when a kid made a major error, Ruddy said. Class Dojo goes deeper than simply showing whether a child had a good or bad day. Each students report, Claudio said, includes time-stamped info rmation about their ups and downs each day. The paren ts of a student with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder showed a printout of their sons Class Dojo page, which showed more problems in the afternoons than in the mornings, to their sons pediatricians, who determined the boys medication wore off about lunchtime each day.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAcross country standout a t Sebring is certainly s omething to be proud of, b ut doesnt guarantee succ ess at the next level e specially when that next l evel is as an NCAArunner f or the University of F lorida. But former Blue Streak T aylor Tubbs hit the g round running in her first c ross country season with t he Gators, which just w rapped up at the South R egion Championships F riday, Nov. 15. In high school during c ross country season, I a veraged 25-30 miles a w eek, she said. In coll ege, I maxed out at 60 m iles and probably avera ged around 50. It sounds like a huge i ncrease, but I barely n oticed it happening. We t rain harder, and smarter, in c ollege. And it certainly paid off. One of four freshmen l isted on the Florida roster, w hich leans on the young s ide with nine out of 13 b eing underclassmen, T ubbs was one of only two G ators to compete in all six e vents the team raced in t his fall the other being s ophomore Julie Macedo. Obviously lower on the p ecking order as the season g ot underway, she showed r ight away that she could s tep in by taking fourth on t he team, and overall, at t he Western Carolina I nvitational, finishing the t wo-mile race in 10:59.09, l ess than seven seconds off t he pace of top Gator Agata S trausa, a redshirt senior f rom Riga, Latvia. In her first experience w ith the increased distance o f college racing, Tubbs moved up a notch by taking third on the team, 14th overall, in the UF hosted Mountain Dew Invitational with a time of 22:01.77 over the six kilometers. With nearly a month of training before the next meet, Tubbs could feel the positive effects in both her ever-decreasing times, as well as confidence with her standing on the team. Its great to have such talented and driven girls to run with every day, she said. They really push me during our workouts. Then it was on to the Disney Cross Country Classic, where it was back to the more familiar 5K distance of her high school running. With Strausa unavailable for the meet, Tubbs took another step forward in the 24-team event, by finishing second among the Gators and fifth overall to help the team take second place. She finished with a time of 17:41.40, eight seconds behind Macedo. When Tubbs finished seventh at State her senior year, her time for the 5K was 18:34.61, while the winning time was 17:48.78. And as opposed to the month layoff between these two meets, the Gators had just one week to then get ready for the Wisconsin adidas Invitational in Madison for the largest meet of the season amid 37 Division I teams from around the country. With Strausa back in the line-up, Tubbs finished third on the team with a time of 21:15 for the 6K. She was less than one minute behind Strausa, 34 seconds behind teammate Cory McGee, a junior from Pass Christian, MS, and News-Sun Sunday, December 1, 2013 BSection Sports Photos courtesy of Mountain To p A bove left: Nearly 600 enthusiasts took time from their holiday to take part in the 2013 Turkey Trot at Highlands Hammock Thursday morning, amid very chilly temperatures.

The Sebring grad had the third best finish on the team, though the Gators fell short of reaching the NCAA Championships. By KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressORLANDO South Florida has had setbacks during coach Willie Taggarts first season in Tampa. The Bulls left the field after Fridays 23-20 loss to No. 17 UCF with a few more regrets to dwell on for sure, but it also displayed flashes of the team Taggart has been hoping to see for weeks. UCFs Breshad Perriman caught a 52-yard touchdown pass from Blake Bortles with 4:50 left to give the Knights the victory and keep them on course for a conference title and BCS bid. USF (2-9, 2-5 American Athletic Conference) had a final chance to win or send the game to overtime, but Jordan Ozerities intercepted Mike Whites pass and returned it 52 yards with 1:20 left in the game to seal the win. The Bulls lost their fifth straight, their longest losing streak of the season. At halftime Im sure not that many people thought that we would come out and play as well on offense as we did in the second half, Taggart said. Credit to our guys, they kept fighting. UCF (10-1, 7-0) secured at least a share of the conference title. Avictory against SMU next week will give the Knights the title outright and their first bid to the BCS. And they beat the Bulls, despite committing five turnovers, including three by Bortles. USF had two turnovers, one leading to a UCF touchdown. We had an opportunity and we didnt take advantage of it, Taggart said. We had a chance on that last drive to take the lead or kick a field goal and tie it up. And we threw an interception. The Bulls came into the game with just nine offensive touchdowns on the sea son, but had a pair of rushing scores by Chris Dunkley and Marcus Shaw. We werent surprised w e had a chance to win the game, Bulls receiver Andr e Davis said. We could have easily taken that game, gone up two scores. It is what it is. Bortles, who came into t he game with just five interceptions on the season, finished 17 for 26 for 219 yards, wi th two touchdowns and two interceptions. He also had a fumble. White, one of three quarterbacks USF has used this season, was steady at times completing 15 of 34 passes for 211 yards. Davis caught seven passe s for 87 yards. USF took a 20-16 lead early in the fourth quarter o n a 1-yard touchdown plunge by Shaw with 14:17 left. UCF took over with 6:54 remaining, but Bortles was picked off on the first play of the drive to give the ball back to USF inside the Knights 35. The Bullsensuing drive stalled and a 51-yard field goal attempt by Marvin Kloss sailed wide right to s et up the Knightsgo-ahead drive. USF drove to the UCF 39 in its final drive, but White s third-down pass was intercepted by Ozerities. Miscues by the Knights allowed the Bulls to stay in USF comes up short at No. 17 UCF See KNIGHTS, B3 By BARRYFOSTER Special to the News-SunSEBRING In addition to a full slate of support series, those who attend the December Sebring Historic Races presented by Alan Jay Dec 6-8 will have a rare treat. More than a half dozen former winners of the 12 Hours of Sebring will gather for a very special competition. Seven champion drivers and one rock star racer will get behind the wheel to help raise funds and awareness for Huntingtons Disease. Donations will be accepted in the name of the event and former Sebring champion John Paul Jr., who suffers from the disease. Reportedly, arrangements are being made so that Paul may join the Saturday evening reception through a Skype hook-up, along with other West Coast-based race car drivers lending their support. Slated to take the wheel of a Porsche 935 JLPHD1 in the four hour endurance competition are Rob Dyson, John Fergus, Hurley Haywood, Roger Mandeville, Jim Pace, Brian Redman and Dorsey Schroeder. They will be joined by rock star and driver Brian Johnson who may be best known as the lead singer for the rock band AC/DC. They all are going to share the one car over the course of the four hour race, said James Redman of HSR. They will all do 2025 minute stints.

IAN HARRISON Associated PressTORONTO LeBron J ames scored 27 points, D wyane Wade had 22 and t he Miami Heat won their n inth straight game, beating t he Toronto Raptors 90-83 o n Friday. Ray Allen and Michael B easley each scored seven p oints and Chris Bosh fouled o ut with four points as the H eat won their 13th straight o ver the Raptors and their s eventh straight in Toronto. Miami has not lost to the Raptors since Jan. 27, 2010. DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points and Rudy Gay had 21 points and 11 rebounds for the Raptors, who lost their second straight. Kyle Lowry had 15 for Toronto. Miami called timeout after back-to-back baskets by Lowry and DeRozan cut it to 83-79 with 5:24 left in the fourth quarter. After DeRozan missed a pair of free throws, Gay grabbed the rebound and scored on a layup, cutting it to 83-81. James responded with a 3, pushing the lead to five, and Toronto missed its next four shots. Gay had a chance to end the scoring drought when he went to the free throw line with 1:37 to play, but missed both attempts. James answered with a layup, pushing the lead to seven. Toronto made just two of 10 free throw attempts in the final quarter. Jamesonly points in the first came on a reverse slam dunk, but Wade and Chalmers each had six for the Heat, who led 27-22 after one. James scored eight in the second, including a pair of alley-oop dunks, and Chalmers also had eight as Miami took a 57-43 lead at halftime. n udged ahead of Macedo by o ne second. Two weeks later it was t ime for the SEC C hampionships, which the G ators hosted, which saw a s light step back from Tubbs, f inishing fourth on the team, 3 7th overall, with a time of 2 1:41.30. But that proved her one l ull of the fall as she r ebounded two weeks later at t he earlier mentioned R egional meet at the U niversity of Alabama in T uscaloosa. There, Tubbs moved back u p to third on the team, 33rd o verall, and broke the 21m inute mark for the first t ime. And in a 5K split for the r ace, Tubbs was timed at 1 7:29. Alas, Florida took fourth a nd were unable to qualify f or the NCAA C hampionship. But it was an initial seas on that introduced Tubbs to t op-tier collegiate competit ion and saw her make p rogress with her results and t raining. We also go into he w eight room and I can see h ow much stronger Ive gott en, she said. Ive gone f rom doing one pull-up to e ight. I also eat a lot healthie r, and a lot more, than I did i n high school. Which was among the e xtra bonuses of a Division I program with which Tubbs got herself familiar. Protein shakes and recovery after workouts are great, she said. We have trainers that work on us if we have pain anywhere. We can get massaged or stretched out and there is a great cold tank we can go in for recovery too. Not a bad gig, if you can get it. Well, Taylor Tubbs got it, and has quickly shown in her first months as a Gator, that she belongs. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, December 1, 2013 Page B3 EO Koch; 5.542"; 4"; Black; -; Reds Fishing Tackle; 5.542"; 10.5"; Process color; Sports; Courtesy photo Tubbs, prior to the race in Tuscaloosa, also had the opportunity to run at the University of Wisconsin in this, her first semester as a Gator. the game in the final 30 minutes. Leading by seven at the break, UCFs fourth turnover of the game a fumble by Bortles inside the UCF 30 allowed USF to tie the game at 1313 late in the third quarter. The Bulls needed three plays to get into the end zone, scoring on an 13-yard end around run by Dunkley. The Knights came right back, though, using a long kickoff return to Rannell Hall to set up a 29-yard field goal by Shawn Moffitt to put them briefly back in front by three. The first half had rough moments on both sides, though UCF had just enough success to take a 13-6 lead into halftime. UCF survived three turnovers, taking its first lead of the game late in the half thanks in part to failed USF gamble. Leading 6-3, the Bulls went for it on fourth-and-2 on the UCF 8, but the snap from center Austin Reiter never reached White, and was recovered the Knights. UCFs offense quickly went to work and capped a 12-play, 92-yard drive that used more than 6 minutes with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Bortles to Justin Tukes that made it 10-6. Taggart said he hopes this latest defeat will moti vate his team going forward. Were trying to teach our guys to hate losing, h e said. You have to hate losing in order to start winning.

Were going to be doing a panel discussion with the drivers like we did at Daytona, Redman said. Those events have been hugely successful. Many fans may recognize Rob Dyson as the patriarch of Dyson Racing a perennial competitor at the Mobil One 12 Hours of Sebring, Hurley Haywood for many years held a record for the most starts at the 12 Hours in addition to being an overall winning driver. Brian Redman, James Redmans father, is both an internationally known driver as well as a two-time winner of the once around the clock classic Although most people now know Dorsey Schroeder as a sports and racing commentator, he also is a winning driver at Sebring and at other road racing venues. Mazda stalwart and IMSAchampion Roger Mandeville will take a stint as will Former class winner Joyun Fergus and Camel Light champion Jim Pace. The all-star competition will be just part of the weekend with a number of sprint races, enduros and even a night race scheduled.

Please k now that each and every s uch offering will be dedic ated to the memory of my d ear wife, Ruth, who was c alled to an important job s omewhere out there a mongst the stars in Heaven. It is almost with misgivi ngs that my first report is r ather sad, as it has to do w ith cats an animal for w hich I have the highest r egard. Two of these wond erful creatures are now a llowing me to live with t hem in peace and harmony. Now comes the distressf ul, upsetting story: While w aiting at the pharmacy c ounter at a local drug store, I noticed that the lady standi ng near me had a report f rom our hospital, and at the s ame time I made notice of h er left hand, which looked b adly mauled with many s cratches and what appeared t o be, a puncture wound. I e xcused myself for being nosy, and asked the lady what happened to her hand. She told me that she usually feeds stray cats out her back door each morning. This particular morning, one of the cats attacked her hand and did the damage. She will have to face possible antirabies treatment if the cat is not found. Our Animal Control people, working efficiently and promptly, captured the cat, and it was found not be to rabid. Christine Rivera is one lucky cat feeder. In the Living Bird summer issue, Dr. John W. Fitzpatrick, Director, Cornell Lab of Ornithology, has a very illuminating full-page article pertaining to the impact feral and free-roaming domestic cats have upon birds and mammals. According to the report, a landmark analysis estimated that every year in the United States alone, free-ranging domestic cats kills between 1.4 and 3.7 billion birds, and from 6.9 to 20.7 billion small mammals. The authors conclude that predation by domestic cats likely constitutes the single greatest source of anthropogenic mortality for U.S. birds and mammals. I join Dr. Fitzpatrick when he says, Hats off to the many responsible cat owners who already keep their cats indoors. If you would like a copy of Dr. Fitzpatricks report, send me a businesssize, stamped envelope and I will be happy to forward this important message. Hank Kowalsi lives in Lake Placid and is a graduate of the Dr. Reed Bowman Bird Study Course given at South Florida State College. He is a past commissioner of the Natural Resources Advisory Commission (NRAC), having served for two years. He is also a past president of the Highlands County Audubon Society.

By ANNE FLAHERTY Associated PressWASHINGTON Its a b ig question for marketers: W hat kind of a buyer are y ou? And, as important, w hat are you willing to pay? In the search for answers t his shopping season, cons umer behavior online and o ff is being tracked aggress ively with help from a dvances in technology. And it can happen whether b uyers are on their work c omputers, mobile devices o r just standing in the groc ery aisle. The data can be c onnected with other persona l information like income, Z IPcode and when a pers ons car insurance expires. Retailers say these techn iques help customize shopp ing experiences and can l ead to good deals for shopp ers. Consumer advocates s ay aggressive tracking and p rofiling also opens the door t o price discrimination, with c ompanies charging someone m ore online or denying them e ntirely based on their home p rice or how often they visit a site. You cant have Christmas a ny more without big data a nd marketers, said Jeff C hester, executive director at t he Center for Digital D emocracy. You know that s ong where Santa knows w hen youve been sleeping? H e knows when youre a wake? Believe me, thats w here hes getting his inform ation from. Consumer tracking has l ong been a part of American c onsumerism. Retailers push s hoppers to sign up for loya lty cards, register purchased i tems for warranty programs a nd note ZIPcodes to feed t heir mailing lists. Online stores and advertising services employ browser cookies, the tiny bits of software code that can track a persons movements across the Internet, to analyze shoppers and present them with relevant pop-up ads. More recently, marketers have developed increasingly sophisticated ways to combine offline and online data that creates detailed profiles of shoppers. They also are perfecting location-tracking technology as a means of attracting new customers and influencing shoppers as they wander through brick-andmortar stores. Amajor push encourages shoppers to agree to be tracked in exchange for a good deal. Brick-and-mortar stores used to balk at customers who used smartphones to compare prices at rival stores, but retailers like Target are now pushing their own mobile apps and offering in-store Wi-Fi. The mobile apps entice shoppers with coupon deals or ads as they move throughout a store, while in-store Wi-Fi is another way to track a consumers online movements. To further lure buyers, major holiday retailers, including Macys, Best Buy and JCPenney, have partnered with the Shopkick mobile app. If shoppers turn on the app while in their store, they can be rewarded with discounts or song downloads for trying on clothes, scanning barcodes and making purchases. Another app, Snapette, blends Americans addiction to social media sites with location technology. Aimed at women keen on fashion, consumers can see what accessories or shoes are creating a buzz in their particular neighborhood, while stores get a chance to entice nearby shoppers with ads or coupons. Not all new technology tracking is voluntary. Stores have been experimenting with heat sensors and monitoring cellphone signals in their stores to see which aisles attract the most attention. One product called Shopperception uses the same motion-detection technology in the Xbox Connect to track a customers movement, including whether they picked up a product only to return it to the shelf.

DearAbby: I am ready to explode. My father-in-law dotes on my 16-year-old daughter, who is his only grandchild. The biggest issue, aside from his overspending, is that he takes her to and from school every day and then expects to stay and visit. I have neither the time nor the inclination to sit and chitchat with him about the same old stuff over and over. My husband doesnt want to be involved. (He doesnt get home until after his father has left, anyway.) It would probably end up in a nasty fight. I want to politely make Dad understand that he doesnt need to come in every single day. I know he will think we are being negative or against him personally, and from past events, I dont want to come across in this manner. Please help. Too Much of a Good Thing in Pennsylvania DearToo Much: Obviously, your father-inlaw doesnt have enough going on in his life to fill his time. Things wont change until you manage to set some boundaries. It would not be negative against him if you had to go out and run errands or your daughter had to do homework after she gets home from school. It would also not be negative, since you dont have time to sit and chat, to ask him to pitch in and help with the chores. You might also suggest that he do some volunteer work to fill his time. But you will have to schedule a time for him to feel welcome perhaps a Sunday dinner when your husband is home and can help to entertain his father. DearAbby: We are the parents of two adult children. We have always lived below our means so we could save for college expenses and retirement. Now that our two sons have finished college (with no debt), we splurged and purchased two luxury vehicles. Our oldest son, Sam, lives in another state but comes into town for business and pleasure, and when he does, he wants to borrow one of our cars. Although Sam has a good driving record, we are hesitant to loan him one of them. He is no longer on our car policy and can well afford to rent a car. Sam is upset with us and says from now on he will stay with friends. I offered to share the rental expense, but my husband said Sam is an adult now and responsible for his own expenses. Are we being unreasonable by not letting him borrow one of our cars? Conflicted in Dallas DearConflicted: You have been generous with your children. Many students finish college with a mountain of debt. It appears that Sam is less interested in what you have done for him than what you will do. Hes acting like a spoiled brat, and I hope you will stick to your guns because your husband is right. DearAbby: Over many years of travel in the U.S. and Europe, I have collected postcards picturing the main sights. Now it is time to toss the trip memorabilia, but the cards are in pristine condition. Any suggestion as to what could be done with them? Globetrotter Out West Dear Globetrotter: If there are schools in your area that offer art classes to the students, you might be able to donate the postcards as material to be used in art projects. Or contact nearby senior centers and ask if they would like to have them to be used for discussion groups or art classes. (They would be wonderful for decoupage projects.)

It was just my little son and me. Though I loved him with all my whole heart, there was a longing that couldnt be denied. I longed to be a wife as well as a mother. I prayed continually for the man who would fulfill his role as husband to me and daddy to my son. Hope and expectation spring from longing that is rightly placed and includes God in our desires. Psalm 37:4, NKJVsays, Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Through seven years of waiting, God refined my longing to go beyond husband and daddy to a soul mate who desired to serve the Lord and raise my son as his own. My steadfast, hopeful prayers continued. Almost 32 years have passed since Ken and I said I do, joyfully serving God together. My son has known a steadfast daddy that has loved him as his own. God knows about the longings in our hearts. And though sometimes it seems he is slow in bringing the satisfaction we crave, we can trust his heart even when we cant see the evidence of his hand at work. Many years before God took on human form as a babe in a manger, the plan had been set of how salvation would come into our world of sin. Isaiah was given this prophecy to pen, as we see in Isaiah 61:1-2. The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; t o proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord. One day, Jesus went into the synagogue on the Sabbath and stood up to read. He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. He opened the book an d came to the above verses written hundreds of years before and read them to th e people. What he said in verse 21 closed the gap from longing to fulfillment. He said, Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing. There is an old hymn (lyrics by Charles Wesley), which says, Come, Thou long expected Jesus, born to set Thy people freejoy of every longing heart. May the longing in each of our hearts be fulfilled this Christmas season by the only One who can sat isfy. Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.
