UNSUNGHEROES The gift of a Christmas Phil Attinger/News-S un Siblings Lazaro Jiminez, 12, and Paradise Duarte, 15, delight in early Christmas gifts Monday at the Sebring Police Department. Police gather donations each year to provide Christmas to a family who would otherwise not have it. Duarte said the purse she received was her favorite. It came from a couple of anonymous girls who stocked it with perfume, lotion, jewelry and even a wallet with cash from their savings, said Vicki Hicks, administrative assistant to Police Chief Tom Dettman and organizer of the event.

Which is why the NewsS un is delighted to name him o ur Unsung Hero for D ecember 2013. He does have some volunt eer helpers, but Spiegel constructed or designed most of the displays at the Carousel of Lights. Spiegel visits the park every day, making sure every bulb is lit, and the tinsel garland is in place. This year, everything shines brighter than before, because Spiegel refurbished the displays that showed signs of wear and tear. Hes very particular, said his wife, Judy Spiegel.

The vote came with no concerns raised from the communitys residents, except one. Kay Nelson, second vice president for the Crystal Lake Homeowners Association, said residents have a problem with going from two garbage pickups each week under the county to one under the city. Because trash can stink, she said. Nelson also said her members took a vote on the question of garbage collection at their last meeting. Out of 94 votes, 63 didnt want to have the recycling collection offered by Avon Park while 31 said they did want it, and the two 32-gallon refuse carts that would come with it.

Marketing and public relations expert Casey Wohl suggested that the city take the opportunity to create a new look for the citys logo at a June council meeting during the discussion of removing the Sebring Centennial art from the logo and reverting back to the original design.

By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING While many C omcast viewers have been able to w atch the Highlands County C ommission meetings for better t han two decades, the meetings h ave been available only for about f ive years on the Internet. Nevertheless, it appears that m ore people are watching the m eetings online as well. At the last m eeting of the 2013 calendar year, H ighlands County Clerk of Courts B ob Germaine said that in the m onth of November there were 566 people who had watched the meetings, 304 of which were unique visitors. In laymans terms, that would mean that 304 people had come to the site, but some of the ensuing 566 views may have been those same viewers skipping to other meetings or other parts of meetings. Unlike the television broadcasts, the webcasts of the meetings have drop-down menus which allow users to skip to a specific portion of a meeting that they would like to watch. We think that some of those viewers may be county staff looking at archived meetings for one reason or another, said Jerome Kazubowski, who is the senior director of business services for the Highlands County Clerk of Courts. The service costs taxpayers about $16,000 a year, and is hosted by Granicus. The California-based firm manages the worlds largest legislative content and boasts more than 5 million government media files and public records. With all that constant use, they have plenty of bandwidth so we could have a lot of Highlands County people watching our meetings all at the same time without any problem, Kazubowski said. Its a pretty big pipe. Currently, the numbers of live users versus those looking at the archives are not broken out. That is something that could change in the future. The county commission meetings are broadcast both on TVas well as the clerk of courts website at www.hcclerk.org, providing a back-up system for those who want to see the meetings. I have unwavering support to have them available both by broad cast and on the Internet, said com missioner Don Elwell. I think that is 100 percent transparency for people who are not able to attend so they can see whats going on at the meetings and what actually happens. Those who want to view the meetings may go to the Highlands County Clerk of Courts web page at http://www.hcclerk.org and clic k on View Board Meetings at the bottom of the page for a selection of meetings and agendas. Internet viewing of county meeting is on the rise Publix helps pediatric patients have better holiday at Florida Hospital Heartland Division rf Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Seminole fans can catch the team spirit at the Lake Placid Art League. Local carving and painting instructor Bill Snyder has created a unique, full-sized carousel carving of Renegade, the Florida State Seminole mascot, which will be just one of the featured pieces in the InstructorsExhibit to be featured at the Lake Placid Art League on Jan. 3 as part of the 1st Friday Tour Lake Placid activities. I love to try to capture the spirit and personality of each of the horses that I create. Some have a very calm, gentle manner, while others are much more active and dramatic. The challenge is to see beyond physical characteristics and to create art works that capture the essence, the soul, of the equine spirit. That is the challenge of all artists: to create powerful works that portray to others the very spirit of their subject, whatever that subject may be, and go beyond the obvious to give life to their art, Snyder said. The works of several other Lake Placid Art League members who teach locally will also be on exhibition. These include Maria Lorant, Jeni Novak, Marsha Penn, Jean Gragert, and Llewellyn Rinold. The Art League is at 127 Dal Hall Blvd. The exhibit is from 4-8 p.m. Admission is free and refreshments will be served. Snyder was born in south Florida, attended University of Florida on a football scholarship, and later received a bachelor of fine arts degree from East Tennessee State University. He created Renegade for his wife, Marlene, who obtained her masters at Florida State. His masters and doctoral work was in Public Administration at Florida Atlantic University. After 32 years in public education as an art teacher, senior high principal and district executive, he retired in 1990 to pursue his dream of working full time, creating one-of-a-kind art works. Snyder primarily creates wood sculptures and oil paintings, and is honored to have work in private collections througho ut the United States. Utilizing his fine arts background and lifelong fascination with the look and feel of wood, he has designe d and created numerous full-sized carousel horses, but, over the past 10 years, has gradually shifted emphasis to teaching others the fine art of carving and painting.

The siblings, Cole's nieces and nephews, are from left, Hope Estrada, 6; Savannah Roux, 9; Lazaro Jiminez, 12. and Paradise Duarte, 15. By PHILATTINGER phil.attinger@newssun.comSEBRING Mondays family gift exchange had everything families have at Christmas a tree, lots of presents and excited children except that instead of their living room, the children had Christmas in the Sebring Police Department lobby. For at the last three years, police and other generous hearts in the community have given Christmas to a local family. Its not hard to find a family in (Sebring) that needs help this time of year, said Vicki Hicks, administrative assistant to Police Chief Tom Dettman. There is a need in this community for generosity. Gifts went this year to the family of Brenda Cole of Sebring: Paradise Duarte, 15; Lazaro Jiminez, 12; Savannah Roux, 9, and Hope Estrada, 6 her nieces and nephew who have lived with her since Hope was a baby. Man, this is just awesome, Cole said. They have never had (a) Christmas like this. Officer Brandon Low handed out gifts from around the tree, starting first with the very enthusiastic Hope and moving up to the next oldest child. They all got toys, games and clothes including a PS2 game console to share. Lazaro received name-brand basketball shoes;. Paradise got a new purse. Hicks said two anonymous young girls brought in the purse, stocked with perfume, body lotion, jewelry and a wallet with cash from their own savings. I wear purses a lot now. This is my favorite, said Paradise with a huge smile. Every year, the Sebring police try to find a family to adopt. (We) dont think any child should go without a Christmas, Hicks said. She said one of the Sebring officers put out a notice on Facebook and donations poured in from places like Rons Automotive and even Walmart, which gave a bicycle to each child. Cmdr. Steve Carr said the officers love doing this each year. Coles children were very deserving of the honor, he said: Well-behaved with good grades at school. Hicks said this annual event has also helped her instill the love of giving in her own children, and has been a way for Sebring police to give back to the community that has supported the police K-9 program. Like the annual family Christmas, the police K-9 program is funded completely on donations, Hicks said. The police department reached out to businesses and residents in 1999 and by 2000, K-9 Fea a flat-coated black Labrador retriever was the departments first police dog. She served nearly 10 years sniffing out illegal drugs, then retired to Hickshome in 2010, where she unfortunately died of a kidney disease six months later. That same year, Sebring residents helped raise funds for a jet-black German shepherd, imported from Germany and named J.R. in memory of Police Sgt. Jimmie R. Moore, who died in the line of duty in 1976. However, J.R. had to go on medical retirement two years later. His handler, Officer John arrison now handles K9 Beemer his own dog that the police department leases from him for $1 per year, Hicks said. Beemers training in police work was also thanks to donations from the community, she said. Sebring PD, community deliver early Christmas Phil Attinger/ News-Sun Savannah Roux, 9, feels a new soft coat that she got for Christmas from the Sebring Police Department on Monday. to keep the carts, Nelson said. She said residents driving through the city itself have seen trash cans sitting out for days and dont want that happening in their 55and-older manufacturedhome community. Councilman Garrett Anderson said residents decide when to put out their garbage, but Mayor Sharon Schuler said the city has an ordinance to require people to police their trash cans. Councilman Parke Sutherland told Nelson he was able to cut his daily garbage by 60-65 percent through the weekly curbside recycling program. He also said customers can cut down on odors by knotting their bags and regularly rinsing out their trash receptacles. Nelson said the cityissued carts would be overkill for some residents who only produce one little Walmart bag of garbage for each pickup. Many people just leave a bag by the curb, she said. City Attorney Gerald Buhr asked if people not using cans have had problems with raccoons, opossums or other rodents. Nelson said she gets around that by putting her garbage out at first light on collection day. The real serious recyclers will go to the WinnDixie (county collection spot), Nelson said. In an email on Tuesday, City Manager Julian Deleon stated that many municipalities are going to once-per-week garbage collection to save on labor costs, fuel, vehicle wear and damage. He also said his office has not received complaints about the schedule from other customers. As for yard waste, Nelson said Monday that maintenance crews in the park collect that from each home and dispose of it along with the golf course clippings and trimmings. Whether or not the garbage is a problem may not be Avon Parks concer n just yet. As an unincorporated area, Crystal Lakes 513 homes had garbage picked up by Progressive Waste Solutions, under the contract with the Highlands County Board of County Commission. They still do, because Progressive has asserted that the county contract constitutes an exclusive franchise on Crystal Lake at least until the end of th e contract in September 2015. Deleon doesnt want to wait that long, citing a potential loss to the city o f $171,612. He got permission from the city council to have Buhr look into the legality of the case and pursue legal action. Buhr said he can file a motion, and it may take a s long as four to five months for the courts to act on it. However, if residents dont think the change would be in their best interest, the court may not either, he said. As for yard waste colle ction, if the landowners crews are doing it, someone is paying a tipping fee at the county landfill, Buhr said. One way or another, residents are paying that through their arrangements with the park. Buhr promised to provide the city council with more information at the next regular meeting on th e second Monday of January 2014. In other business, the city council agreed to a five-year extension of the waiver on the $20,000 uti lity impact fee for new businesses utilizing existing vacant buildings. It w as approved unanimously wi th no discussion or questions from the public. Phil Attinger can be reached at phil.attinger@newssun.com or 385-6155, ext. 541 and followed on Twitter @PhilAttinger.

It was the second spacewalk in four d ays for U.S. astronauts Rick M astracchio and Michael Hopkins, and o nly the second Christmas Eve spacewalk in NASAhistory. NASAordered up the spacewalks to revive a critical cooling loop at the International Space Station. All nonessential equipment had to be turned off when the line conked out Dec. 11, and many science experiments halted. Mastracchio and Hopkins removed the faulty ammonia pump during Saturdays outing. On Tuesday, they installed the fresh pump 260 miles above the planet. Its like Christmas morning opening up a little present here, Mastracchio said as he checked his toolkit.

Please tell me the truth; is t here a Santa Claus? Virginia OHanlon 115 West Ninety-Fifth Stret Virginia, your little friends a re wrong. They have been a ffected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not b elieve except they see. T hey think that nothing can b e which is not comprehens ible by their little minds. A ll minds, Virginia, whether t hey be mens or childrens, a re little. In this great univ erse of ours man is a mere i nsect, an ant, in his intell ect, as compared with the b oundless world about him, a s measured by the intellig ence capable of grasping t he whole of truth and k nowledge. Yes, Virginia, there is a S anta Claus. He exists as c ertainly as love and gene rosity and devotion exist, a nd you know that they a bound and give to your life i ts highest beauty and joy. A las! how dreary would be t he world if there were no S anta Claus. It would be as d reary as if there were no V irginias. There would be no c hildlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished. Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but thats no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world. You may tear apart the babys rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding. No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. Athousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

Better ideas for spending cutsEditor: On the latest deal in Congress to keep the government solvent, they are cutting benefits to disabled veterans and their families. Dont lay it on the maimed and disabled veterans and their families. This is truly unconscionable. I saw Senator Schumer on TVsaying everybody must take a cut. Then he whines, we have not had a raise in three years. However, Congress exempts its members from everything they lay on the taxpayers. My opinion on this is, Congress should have their salaries cut by 50 percent because of the shape they have put the country in. Furthermore, their use of perks and lobbyist payoffs enhance their income. I have never seen a poor or destitute Congressman. If Congress really wants to make cuts, start with the President, who is a real leech. Keep him off of Air Force One. Let him pay for these extravagant milliondollar-plus family vacations and his childrens vacations, instead of sticking it to the taxpayers. Congress should also stop creating and funding stupid programs such as studying the sex life of bees, etc. Dick Ford SebringGun violence is a problemEditor: It is difficult to imagine a column more misleading than The Death of Personal Freedom on Nov. 20. It is by Rick Jensen, a radio personality in Delaware. Jensen is horrified by Massachusetts gun laws, including those that the legislature hasnt passed yet. We are given an imaginary incident where police shoot a boy holding a BB gun in his own home. This didnt happen but that doesnt matter since Jensen deals only in fantasies. For a look at the facts, lets start with those who survive gun violence, and Jensens obsession, people shot by police. In a typical year in the United States, 694 people are shot by the police and survive. Since 15,815 are shot in accidents and 51,249 are shot by criminals and live, there are a lot more of those. The number of survivors shot by police is equal to about 4 percent of those shot accidentally and about 1 percent of those shot by criminals. When we look at deaths, 334 people die after being shot by police, compared to 11,583 murders and 18,783 gun suicides. The number of Americans who die by police gunfire is equal to about 3 percent of those who are murdered with guns and about 2 percent of those who commit suicide with guns. These typical year figures come from the Brady Campaign Against Gun Violence, which averaged the figures from 2008 to 2010. The Brady Campaign exists because, on a typical day, 282 Americans are shot, including crime, accidents and suicide, and 50 of those are children and teenagers. Of the 282 shot on an average day, 86 die. Rising rates of youth suicide are a cause for concern. The District of Columbia was harshly criticized for its strict law on handguns for many years. Lets take a look at firearm suicides by those under 16 for the years 2000 to 2002. For this three-year period, there were 91 in Texas, 39 in Florida, and four in Rick Jensens Delaware. In contract, there were no suicides by firearm, or any other means, by those under 16 in the District of Columbia for the same period. This is what Rick Jensen cant seem to grasp. Gun violence is a problem and gun laws do make a difference. Dale L.

l ogo, Wohl said then. Since then, Wohl has t aken ideas to a local graphic a rtist company to come up w ith new ideas for the logo a nd brought 12 ideas to the c ouncil meeting last week. The full council, along w ith City Administrator S cott Noethlich and City A ttorney Bob Swaine, were g iven the 12 images to i nspect. One image, labeled No. 4, w as the most popular T uesday night, and has also b een popular with others W ohl has shown it to. No. 4 is the most popul ar. They are all very differe nt from what the city has h ad in the past, Wohl said. Council president Andrew F ells agreed that all the i mages are modern and f resh. I agree. Four is my f avorite of all of them. I like t he subtle hint of the Races, I like that the sun looks like a n orange. I think that is a big part of who we are as a city. I like that the Races arent the main focus, Fells said. Councilmen John Griffin was not aesthetically satisfied with any of the logo designs. I dont like any of them. I dont think theyre very creative, Griffin said. Griffin also liked the wording of one of the designs and thought it should be added in a circle around design No. 4, which the majority of council liked. Thats just going to be too busy and too much going on, Fells said. Scott Stanley, John Clark, Bud Whitlock and Mayor George Hensley all agreed that No. 4 was the best of the bunch. Griffin suggested that some tweaks and changes, suggested by the council, be added to the designs. We can do that. Well go back with your suggestions and have maybe three rounds of input before we approve anything, Wohl said.Max Long Complex improvements Improvements to Max Long Sports Complex near the Highlands County YMCAwill finish up in the coming days after the council approved the request of Sebring Youth Baseball President Bobby Green last week. Tuesdays council meeting allowed Green and volunteers to tear down the dilapidated wall at the rear of one of the ballfields and replace the fence. Weve replaced it once already, about three years ago, and its falling down again already, Green said. Were planning to get it down and just replace it with a normal chain link fence of the same height. Council unanimously approved the request to replace the fence. Green stated the replacement would likely begin Dec. 23 and finish up later in the week if necessary. I just want to say that the fence was in bad shape; it really needed the work done to it, so I support the council allowing this to happen, Fells said. Green said other fences in bad condition will likely need to be replaced in the coming months before the Sebring Youth Baseball season gets into full swing. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, December 25, 2013 Page A5 CARDIOLOGY ASSOCIATES; 5.542"; 5"; Black plus three; process, main A erectile dysfu; 0 0 0 3 4 0 7 9 MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 4"; Black; main A rhr top of ad stack; 0 0 0 3 4 7 1 6 w illy-nilly; he has a pattern, c arefully measured, so every f ixture has optimal lines of s ight.

By PHILATTINGER phil.attinger@newssun.comAVON PARK Members of the advisory board for Avon Parks Community Development Agency Southside district want to move ahead on a state grant application for commercial revitalization. They have stopped short, however, of picking a street to rename in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and have asked to not accept any more local faade grant applications until those already on file have been reviewed. On Monday, the Avon Park City Council, acting as the CRABoard, approved all three of the advisory boards actions. Maria Sutherland, administrative services director, told board members that the Southside CRAAdvisory Board has set aside $90,000 over the last three years to pay for engineering for the Community Redevelopment Block Grant application. If awarded, the grant would provide $750,000 in streetscaping work in the Southside neighborhoods, she said. Sutherland said engineering work needs to be done to get a better idea of the entire cost of the project. She also said advisory board members know that having engineering work done would not guarantee that the city would get the grant, but they need that information for the grant application. Avon Park also has several free faade grant applications at city hall, and some need to be awarded based on safety and health issues at those homes. However, Sutherland said, the board only has $20,000 coming into that fund. Board member Brenda Giles, liaison to the Southside advisory board, had suggested that after paying for engineering work, any leftover funds from the $90,000 should be applied to the faade grant program to help clear that list as soon as possible. The CRABoard did approve a $5,000 faade grant to Marions Community Funeral Chapel, which needs roof work and other repairs. Its a 50/50 grant, which means the applicant would have to make an equal or higher investment in repairs, as well. Sutherland said the total cost of all repairs wil l exceed $10,000, which would cover the applicant s half. As a final item, the advisory board has held off on renaming a street for King and tabled any action on it because the members wan t to be sure to choose a street that isnt already named in honor of someone or in memory of a group or event. We want to get the whole community, not just the Southside, to look at streets, Giles said. Sutherland said the advi sory board wanted to pick a street in time for the next MLK Day events in January. Board chairwoman Sharon Schuler agreed it needs to be a community effort, especially since Avon Park has several streets already named in memory of others.

The 1st District Court of Appeal in e arly December sided with a University of N orth Florida student and a gun rights group t hat had challenged a rule that banned stud ents from storing guns in their cars. UNF President John Delaney told students a nd faculty on Friday that the university w ould not appeal the ruling to the state S upreme Court. He did not explain why. Delaneys message also stated that, effective immediately, students could store guns in their cars. Florida Carry, the group that helped bring the lawsuit against UNF, sent a notice Sunday to all Florida universities and colleges that it will sue any school that does not repeal similar rules by the start of the spring semester. This is the law of the land, said Sean Carrana, executive director of Florida Carry. AFlorida State University spokeswoman said Monday the university would also immediately follow the ruling.

By TAMARALUSH Associated PressWESTMONROE, La. Faith. Family. Ducks. I ts the unofficial motto for t he family featured in the T Vreality show Duck D ynasty and that homespun p hilosophy permeates nearl y everything in this small n orth Louisiana town. Its perhaps most on disp lay at the Whites Ferry R oad Church of Christ in W est Monroe, where the R obertson family prays and p reaches most Sunday m ornings. The family including p atriarch Phil Robertson, w ho ignited a controversy l ast week when he told a m agazine reporter that gays a re sinners and AfricanA mericans were happy u nder Jim Crow laws w ere in a front pew this p ast Sunday. And standing b y beliefs they say are d eeply rooted in their readi ng of the Bible. The rest of the flock, d ecked out in Duck D ynasty hats and bandann as, stood by the family a nd the sentiments Phil R obertson expressed. Alan, Robertsons eldest s on, helped deliver a C hristmas-themed sermon. H e started off by referring t o last weeks controversy. Hope your week went w ell, he dead-panned. Ours was kindaslow. He was referring, of c ourse, to the shows forced h iatus: TVnetwork A&E s uspended broadcasts last w eek after Phils remarks a bout blacks and gays c aused a public uproar. But the controversy barel y resonated above the o rgan music at Whites F erry Road Church. Son W illie the CEO of the m ultimillion dollar Duck C ommander duck call and d ecoy enterprise that i nspired reality show prod ucers to give the family a s how put on camouflage w ader overalls and baptized t hree people, including one m an with cancer. Whos going to be the l ord of your life? he asked, b efore dipping the man b ack into the baptismal p ool at the front of the c hurch. To the people of West M onroe, this is the R obertson family: honest, f amily-focused and filled w ith the love of God and J esus. Its the family that b rought the spotlight to W est Monroe, population 1 3,000, and in doing so put i n sharp relief the cultural, p olitical and religious diff erences that define and often divide America. Folks here dont care that Phil Robertson told a GQ reporter that gays are sinners who are going to hell. Or that as a youth he picked cotton with AfricanAmericans and never saw the mistreatment of any black person. Not once. They do care that A&E suspended the show. The move, they say, was unfair and an affront to viewers, to the Robertsons and to Christians everywhere. The program and his comments take a snapshot and it doesnt represent the totality of what the guy is all about, said Richard Laban, the owner of Redneck Roots, a downtown West Monroe store that sells some Duck DynastyT-shirts and souvenirs. A&E reacted entirely too quickly, added Laban. They really treated Phil as if he was a terrorist. With its lakes and rolling hills and pine forests, West Monroe in northern Louisiana is Duck Country USA, a place where Robertson and his four sons built an empire on duck call devices and decoys before becoming wildly popular TVstars. Politicians have taken a stand on the controversy Sarah Palin posted a picture on her Facebook page of her with the reality show clan with the message, Free Speech is an endangered species. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also lamented the suspension. Even State Rep. Marcus Hunter a Democrat and black man who represents West Monroe issued a statement saying that the faith and family structure exhibited by the Robertsons on the hit A&E show is part of the allure which makes it so special. Hunter did say he would like to enlighten Robertson about the challenges and triumphs of black people during and after Jim Crow. To be sure, not everyone here agrees with the Robertsons. John Denison, a former Monroe TVpersonality who is gay and the head of Forum for Equality, a group that advocates for the equality of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender rights, said hes appalled by Robertsons remarks. I want Phil Robertson and the world to know that what he said hurt me and many people here in our state, said Denison, who wrote an open letter to Robertson, asking him to dinner to discuss not what separates us but what brings us together. Denison said Robertsons beliefs do not resonate with everyone in Louisiana. Im a Christian, said Denison. No one wants to talk about my Christ, they only want to talk about their brand. Rev. Welton Gaddy, who preaches at the Northminster Baptist Church in Monroe and is the president of a national group called the Interfaith Alliance, said it saddens him to think that people would assume all Louisiana residents think the same as Robertson about gays and African Americans. There are some of us who are working hard every day for justice for everybody in this nation, for equality for everybody in this nation, and we dont appreciate people tearing that down, Gaddy said. If Robertson wants to do that as an entertainer, go to it. But to do that in the name of religion crosses the line. But like many people across America who enjoy the show, Robertsons fans here in West Monroe see something genuine about the reality TVfamily and believe he speaks his brand of the truth. Even though its a program about a group of wealthy business owners who hunt and fish, people say it accurately reflects life here, as well as its Christian and American foundations. When outsiders in New York or Hollywood make fun of the show or worse, criticize Robertson for his beliefs its like part of the country is criticizing the essence of West Monroe. To the people here, its just proof that a segment of America doesnt understand the rural, conservative, Christian part of this country. They the Northerners, the liberals, the nonChristians dont get us, people here think. Ironically, those Northerners are the ones who put West Monroe on the map in the first place by producing Duck Dynasty for TV. Marilyn Lovett of West Monroe shrugs off the criticism. The ducks, as she calls them, reflect her and her people. Wholesome values, she said. The fact that they pray after every dadgum meal. I just think its wonderful. I wish there was more people like them. When asked about what people elsewhere in America thought when they read Robertsons comments in GQ, she shrugged. I dont really care, she said. They sure as hell dont care about what we think down here. Duck Dynasty, which is one of the most-watched reality shows of all time, is naturally the areas biggest tourist draw. The Robertsons not only own a large gift store and warehouse where they sell everything from branded body wash to Bearded Blend coffee to a camouflage recliner, but they have opened Willies Duck Diner and a womens boutique called Duck and Dressing. There are self-guided tour maps, so fans can visit places seen on the show the church, hardware store and doughnut shop are on the tour and people say that West Monroe, and the Robertsons, are popular because its all a throwback to small-town America. Ive known Phil for 30 years, said Mike Walsworth, the owner of the Gingerbread Shop, an antique and gift shop. He hasnt changed for 30 years.

By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentIt is every athletes dream t o make history in some w ay. Be it as simple as posit ively impacting the life of a nother, breaking a school r ecord, or being a part of a h ard-fought victory. In his time as a Lake P lacid Green Dragon, N evada Weaver certainly left h is mark. The then linebacker was a t wo-time team MVPin 2011 a nd 2012 and was even n amed News-Sun co-Player o f the Year. Graduating just a year a go, Weaver set his sights on t he Florida Institute of T echnology to pursue a d egree in Mechanical E ngineering. He currently holds a 3.43 G PA, a remarkable average g iven the rigor of not only h is field of study but the s chool as well, which is cons idered one of the toughest t echnical institutions in the U nited States. As an honors graduate f rom LPHS, it was no surp rise that Weaver fit right in a nd started making the most o f his time at FITin more w ays than one. You see, Weaver made h istory at Florida Tech. Together with long-time t eammate and fellow former D ragon Nick Swain and S ebrings Zac Morris, W eaver went down in the b ooks as a member of F lorida Techs inaugural f ootball team. Previously, the Panthers p layed intersquad scrimm ages in preparation for the 2 013 season, where they w ould play their first game a s an official Division II team. Not only was this their first year in the division, but they also stand to be the only D2 program in the state. Needless to say, simply being a part of such a monumental experience was a feat in itself, but red-shirt freshman Weaver and the rest of the squad continued to make their historical impact. Not to be taken lightly, the Panthers came out strong in their first outing, taking on D1 Stetson University. This particular game was Weavers fondest moment, and with good reason. The Panthers managed a 20-13 win over the Hatters, launching their year and the football program as a whole off to the right start. The team went on to finish the season 5-7, including a win in a Bowl game all the way out in West Virginia. Playing now as a cornerback, Weaver recorded two tackles on the season while also seeing some action on special teams. College football is a good experience, said Weaver. It requires a lot of heart, dedication, and commitment. All three factors Weaver has proven to possess, given his successes back home as well as his present and projected triumphs as a Panther. In his Dragon days, Weaver lettered in football, baseball and basketball while maintaining a noteworthy 4.72 GPAand being a member of the National Honor Society. As the old saying goes, You reap what you sow, and Weaver is certainly a positive testimony of that.

By KAREEM COPELAND Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Winter of Winston continues for Florida States redshirt freshman quarterback. Jameis Winston is The Associated Press national player of the year, adding to his cadre of postseason accolades. Hes this years Heisman Trophy winner, the Walter Camp national player of the year, the Davey OBrien quarterback of the year and the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year. Seminole football fans should send a thank you note to Florida States baseball program. If not for coach Mike Martin Sr. and one of his assistants, Mike Martin Jr., Winston a twosport athlete might not be preparing to lead the No.1-ranked Seminoles against No. 2 Auburn in the BCS championship game Jan. 6 with the opportunity to bring a third national title back to the Florida State campus. When Winston won the Heisman he thanked the usual cast of family, coaches and teammates. Then there was the thanks to Eleven and Meat. Most of the country ignored the peculiar names, but Winston wouldnt have attended Florida State without the warm relationship between football coach Jimbo Fisher and the Florida State baseball coaching staff. Eleven otherwise known as baseball coach Martin Sr., who has led the program for 34 years and Meat Martin Jr Martin Jr. was on a recruiting trip to watch Winston during his junio r year of high school when he called to let Fisher know. Fisher actually had tap e of Winston on his desk at the time and decided to put it in. About 30 minutes late r, Fisher called Martin Jr. back and said, Dont let him get away. Winston hit a gamewinning home run that day. Jimbo Fisher deserve s the credit for giving the young man the opportun ity to display his talents in another sport, Martin S r. said. Fisher covets players that come from diverse backgrounds where football wasnt their only sport. He actively looks for athletes that play numerous positions on the foot ball field and play differ ent sports. It makes you a different kind of competitor, Fisher said. You learn to learn the different situations. Handle different pressures. Handle noise. Handle quiet. Different games are played in different ways and in differ ent environments. ...

Romo was the starter in losses to the New York Giants two years ago and Redskins last season. He injured his back in the fourth quarter of Sundays 24-23 win at Washington. Kyle Orton, who hasnt started a game since 2011, is the backup. Jones said he had lengthy discussions with Romo and his doctors Monday about getting the 33-year-old ready to play. The owner wouldnt discuss the details of Romos injury. If you know Tony, you cant imagine what a competitor he is, and he doesnt want to miss a snap, Jones said. He was very disappointed, particularly disappointed for his team, repeated over and over again, Jerry, I cant tell you how badly I feel relative to you and relative to my teammates.

Sebring YMCA has plenty to keep kids busy He was heavily padded a nd medicated the next week a gainst Washington and did e nough to get the Cowboys a n 18-16 win. Tony will play with all t he pain, Jones said. But h is doctor has to clear him. If Romo isnt cleared, O rton will make his first s tart since the 2011 season f inale for Kansas City a gainst Denver, the team that w aived him earlier that year a fter making Tim Tebow the s tarter. Orton signed a three-year, $ 10.5 million contract with t he Cowboys that offseason an investment that Jones says was for just the scenario facing Dallas now. The main thing is that its not like Kyle Orton just gets here this morning or gets here tomorrow morning, Jones said. Kyle Orton has been here and he knows this system frankly as well as Romo does. And has practiced it. He just doesnt have the game time that he would have had as the starter, and he doesnt get the reps. Jones said the Cowboys were bringing in multiple quarterbacks for tryouts Tuesday, mostly looking for someone to ease the throwing load on Orton if Romo is either out or limited in practice. Romo and Orton are the only quarterbacks on the roster after Alex Tanney was claimed off the practice squad by Cleveland last month. If you dont realize that youre going to be dealing with injury information, sudden change in plans, then youre in the wrong area, Jones said. Were in as good a shape under these circumstances as you could possibly be in. We have planned on this very event.

Y oure constantly competing a nd you dont get in that rut o f you only get it once a y ear. I think when youre g etting it two and three diff erent times of year, the m ore youre in competitive s ituations, the more you find o ut about yourself. ... Every time you compete y ou learn something about y ourself. I think its very g ood for athletes to do. I w ish more athletes were m ulti-sport guys than they a re now. Just like the Heisman voti ng, Winston was a landslide w inner in APplayer of the y ear voting. He received 49 out of 56 v otes cast by APTop 25 coll ege football poll voters. Northern Illinois quarterb ack Jordan Lynch received t hree votes. Alabama quart erback AJ McCarron got t wo votes. Boston College running b ack Andre Williams and M ichigan State cornerback D arqueze Dennard each r eceived one vote. Winston is the first F lorida State player to win t he award, which has been h anded out since 1998, and t he first from the Atlantic C oast Conference. Florida State and Winston c ontinued to excel despite a s exual assault investigation t hat became public last m onth. The State Attorneys O ffice announced that it w ould not press charges b efore the ACC champio nship game. Bo Jackson, the 1985 H eisman winner, was also a t wo-sport star from W instons hometown of B essemer, Ala. The 19-year-old Winston s aid after the Heisman cerem ony that he wants to better t han Jackson. The Texas Rangers drafted W inston in the 15th round of t he 2012 MLB draft, but he e lected to go to school. Winston will compete for t he closer job for the No. 5r anked Seminoles when b aseball begins. He has a fastball that r eaches 93-95 miles per hour a nd throws a slider for s trikes. Martin Sr. said there are n o restrictions on the quart erback outside of the norm al rest for pitchers. Winston is poised to b ecome the sixth winner in H eisman history to play coll egiate baseball after winn ing the award and the first s ince Jackson in 1986, a ccording to STATS LLC. Martin Sr. believes W inston could be the No. 1 o verall pick in the MLB d raft if he was to singularly f ocus on baseball, but the c oach doesnt want that. He sees Winston as a firstr ound pick in both baseball a nd football. I never want him to d evote full time to baseball b ecause then I would miss o ut on his talent in football, M artin Sr. said. Hes just o ne of those rare athletes t hat only come around once in a blue moon. Winston said baseball helped him a lot with football because baseball is a failing game. As a quarterback you have to handle every situation the same. So when I throw a touchdown Ill celebrate and whatnot but when I throw a pick I keep my head up and say my fault guys and move on and keep stuff going. Baseball helped me with that.

Its important to have a b alance, and that is difficult w hen there is so much r equired of you. Additionally, Weaver s hared what it is like essentially starting fresh as a college athlete. It is difficult coming onto another team, playing a different position with different teammates. The pace of the game is also faster and more intense. Weaver still persisted, taking this challenge head-on as he has with others in the past, and his hard work paid off as evidenced by his accomplishments. He shared these words of wisdom for aspiring athletes: Put in a lot of work in high school, in both the classroom and on the field. If not, youll fall behind.

Sweet, delicate crab meat is so delicious. Its also an excellentsource of nutrients, protein and those important Omega 3s. Crab isalso a low risk seafood for mercury great news! Now back to the crab boil. Your family is going to love you for fixing a crab boil for dinner.Involve the children by asking them to lay down a tablecloth ofnewspapers and to put down a stack of extra napkins. The kids can also help you with the prep for this meal, no matter whattheir ages. Heres what you need for your basic crab boil: Alarge pot (you may need two pots depending on how many peopleyoure feeding) New potatoes 2 to 3 live crabs per person 1/2 pound of smoked sausage per person An ear of organic corn per person (halve them) Lots of butter Sea salt Tools for getting the meat out of the crab shells Cold white wine and/or beer Theres one item missing from that list and thats your crabseasoning. I usually just throw in my familys favorite spices to thepot and I urge you to do the same. If you need some inspiration, try acombination of: cayenne pepper onion powder garlic powder paprika black pepper Cut your potatoes in slices about a half inch thick and place them inyour pot. Add water to cover the potatoes by an inch or so. Add yourseasoning and a few good pinches of sea salt. Heres where the kidscan be helping. Let them toss in the corn, sausages and crabs to thepot, cover the pot and bring the whole works to a boil. When it startsto boil, reduce your heat to medium high and cook, covered, for about15 minutes or so, or until the crabs are cooked. When its done, use the cover of the pot to help you pour the waterout of the pot. Then dump everything else in the center of the table,pour yourself a cold glass of wine, and dig in!

She always said, Never put off telling the people you love how you feel about them because you might not have a tomorrow. She practiced what she preached, and we all knew that she loved us. When she passed away eight years ago, it was a painful loss, especially for our mother. Last week Mom finally succeeded in talking Dad into opening a stuck drawer in a cabinet. Inside she found a letter from my sister that had been put away and forgotten years ago. In the letter my sister wrote how blessed she felt she was to have a mother like ours, how all the sacrifices Mom made for her had been appreciated and how much she loved her. That long-forgotten letter is now my mothers most prized possession. Please remind your readers not to take tomorrow for granted, and to tell those they love how they feel today. Jules Sister in Louisville, Ky. DearSister: The loving message your sister wrote has conveyed her feelings from beyond the grave, and it is understandable that it is even more meaningful now than when it was written. Im glad to remind readers to verbalize their affection for each other. But the written word is something that can be savored over and over. DearAbby: My brother mocks everything I do, the friends I spend time with and my politics. When were together, he is often condescending and confrontational. Im tired of arguing when I go to his home and he asks me whats going on. I have started to answer, Nothing. So now he tells me how boring I am, in addition to his other criticisms. Abby, his comments are hurtful and I try to stay away from him, but I love my little nieces and want to be around them as they grow up. I dont have problems with anyone but him. Our other brother stopped talking to him years ago, but I dont think I can do anything that extreme. How can I change the dynamic in our relationship? It doesnt seem to have progressed since we were kids. Under Attack in Ne w Jers ey DearUnderAttack: The dynamic in your relationship hasnt changed since you were kids because you r brother never stopped being a bully. He calls you borin g when you dont take the bait because he considers belittling you to be a form of entertainment. You can t change him. If you point out what hes doing, he will deny it and blame you for being too sensitive. You can, however, unde rstand his childish motivation. Ignore him as much as possible and focus your attention on your nieces since that's your only reaso n for going over there anyway. DearAbby: I have been with my partner for six years. She is 14 years older than I am. We get along great and have a wonderful relationship. Marsha and I live in a small Southern city. She is well-known and politically active. While everyone knows she is gay, they rarely realize I'm her partner because I look much younger. We are often approached with, Oh, is this your daughter? How are we supposed to respond? Marsha and I work in the same place, so it happens there, too. Its awkward. Any ideas? Aint My Mam a DearAint: Because Marsha is a public person and its no secret shes gay when the two of you are asked if you are mother and daughter, Marsha should reply, No, she is my partner. (And ask them to spread the word.) To My Christian Readers: I wish each and every one of you a very merry and meaningful Christmas. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

Dont wait until tomorrow to tell the people you love It can be frustrating to find that your coupon will not scan knowing you have done your due diligence in purchasing the correct size, product, etc. to the coupon specifications. Many stores will not allow the cashier to enter the coupon manually and when this happens, what do you do? By being an educated couponer you will be prepared and know your options. Store coupon policy: Knowing your store coupon policy will be a key to your success. When the coupon will not scan, many stores will not allow the cashier to enter this manually. This is because stores are trying to cut down on coupon fraud. Even though you purchased the correct item, if your ink is low, barcode smears or the physical coupon has an error, the store can refuse the coupon. This means you will not be able to redeem it without a manager approval. Product specifications: This is the No. 1 reason that coupons do not scan. Many coupons are coded with the new bar code (GS1) and along with this, the size, weight, expiration and allowances for the product. The coupon may beep or not scan. Low ink levels: Poor print quality can result in the bar code not printing correctly. I am a firm believer in getting the most ink out of my cartridges or milking it to the end, but when it comes to printing coupons you need to make sure you have a good supply of ink. It is OK to print in black and white, but if your prints are gray, they will most likely not scan. PDF coupons: PDF means Portable Document Format or in a couponers world it means unlimited coupon prints. I am still baffled that manufacturers still use pdf coupons with the amount of coupon fraud. Be responsible when you come across a manufacturer coupon in pdf format. Just because you can print without limits does not mean that it is OK to do so. There are many systems that do not recognize pdf coupons. GS1 Data Bar: This is the newest barcode system. Many manufacturers have already converted their coupons over to the new bar code system. In the past you had two bar codes on each coupon with numbers below it. Now you have one bar code and manufacturers can load more information into it like start/end date, product size etc Tanya Senseney has more than 16 years experience saving and teaching others how to reduce their monthly grocery budget and give back to the community.

What to do if your coupon wont scan Savings Diva Tanya Senseney Dear Abby By JAKE COYLE APFilm WriterNEWYORK U niversal Pictures has d elayed the release of Fast & Furious 7 for almost a y ear following the death of s tar Paul Walker. The studio announced M onday that the Fast & F urious sequel will be r eleased in April 2015, i nstead of July next year. S hooting on the film was a bout halfway finished w hen the 40-year-old W alker died in a car crash o utside of Los Angeles. Walker still will appear i n the film, though U niversal has not said e xactly how it will handle h is unfinished performance. Co-star Vin Diesel first posted the news on Facebook, telling his fans that, Hed want you to know first. The franchise has been one of Universals most lucrative, grossing almost $2.4 billion worldwide since 2001. The last film, Fast & Furious 6, made $789 million. Production on Fast & Furious 7 was on Thanksgiving break when Walker and his friend, Roger Rodas, died in a fiery crash in Valencia on Nov. 30. Rodas, 38, was driving his 2005 Porsche Carrera GTwith Walker in the passenger seat. Fast & Furious 7 delayed until April 2015 Associated PressOn a busy pre-Christmas w eekend at the box office, The Hobbit: The D esolation of Smaug held o ff a very different sequel, Anchorman 2: The Legend C ontinues. Peter Jacksons Hobbit s equel took in $31.5 million i n its second weekend of r elease for Warner Bros., a ccording to studio estim ates Sunday. Though the f ilm isnt matching the pace o f the first Hobbit movie, An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug i s doing well abroad. Its n ow made more than $400 m illion worldwide, includi ng $96 million internationa lly over the weekend. The Hobbit topped Will F errells Anchorman sequel, which nevertheless opened strongly in second place. The Paramount Pictures comedy made $26.8 million over the three-day weekend and $40 million since opening Tuesday night. The much-marketed Anchorman 2 actually outperformed The Hobbit on Friday, but failed to best it over Saturday and Sunday. But the $50 million comedy, which Paramount initially turned down, also suggested it will be more popular abroad than most comedies. It made $13.4 million in six international markets. The 2004 original opened with $28.4 million, but only grossed $5.3 million internationally. Hobbit holds off Anchorman 2

Last week, I got a text f rom Dave Ailstock, who is t he owner of 18 East in A von Park. He asked me to s end him a recipe for game h ens. I replied and said I w ould come up with somet hing and send it to him. I t hought about what would b e a great way to prepare a h en, and I decided to create a recipe with oysters and b acon in it. I decided to make a class ic sage stuffing and also a dd oysters to it and stuff t he hen. I also thought it w ould be a nice touch to w rap applewood-smoked b acon around the mid-sect ion and roast it. I put my usual seasoning o f fresh rosemary and fresh g arlic on the hen before s tuffing it and wrapped it w ith the bacon. I cut red p otatoes into wedges and j ulienned some onion and p laced them in a roasting p an, then set the hen on t op. I roasted it at 350 d egrees for about 45 minu tes and it was beautiful. I had a nice glass of red z infandel to go with it and I enjoyed it very much. I h ope that Dave tries this r ecipe at 18 East and I h ope that it pleases his cust omers as much as we e njoyed it. I am already l ooking forward to making t his dish again and I hope y ou to as well. Cheers, Chef.

One Healthy Spud Beyond their appearance in some of the most beloved dishes, potatoes also boast many benefits to your diet.

In fact, potatoes contain more potassium than a banana or spinach. Vitamins Aspud a day may keep the cold germs away.
