If theres one thing that most fishermen cannot agree on, its the right color of the plastic baits they use to catch bass. Day in and day out I watch as customers search through the hundreds of plastic baits lining our shelves looking for that special color that they believe the fish will strike. But is color really that important? I can tell you, weve had many heated discussions regarding color with few fishermen reaching the same conclusion. There are really two questions regarding color. The first is whether color even makes a difference, and assuming you believe it does, what is the best color? As a tournament bass fisherman and bass fishing guide, I dont believe color is that important. Yeah, I have my favorite colors specifically blue/black, but I personally dont think color makes a difference to a fish. But Im kind of out there on a limb on this subject as most fishermen would tell you Im wrong. Ive heard hundreds, maybe even thousands of stories from fishermen trying to convince me that color does make a difference and they try their best to convince me. But I remain unconvinced. Way back in the 70s, I worked with Buck Perry (often referred to as the father of structure fishing) and his associates, putting together fishing seminars to sold-out crowds in Cleveland, Ohio. The seminars would feature different speakers, film and slide shows followed by Buck Perry himself explaining how and why he could catch fish when no one else could out of the same body of water. He talked about the home of the fish being deep water and the imporBy DAN HOEHNE AVON PARK Looks of disappointment were evident on the faces of the Lady Green Dragons after Fridays 49-40 loss to McKeel left them as District 9-4Arunners up. But they should take great solace in even having gotten to this point. Nobody was expecting anything from this team this season, head coach Jackie Coyne said afterward. For these girls to have had the season they had, to even get to title game of the district tournament, thats something they should be proud of. Perhaps even prouder still that against the districtstop seed, they certainly gave themselves a chance to take the title. Their mad-scramble, pedal-to-the-metal defense got the Lady Wildcats off their game during various stretches throughout the night, allowing the Dragons keep within striking distance. Still, McKeel would also have their good sequences, like a 10-0 run with Lake Placid holding an early 6-4 lead. But the Dragons would edge back in, with Quiahja Williams converting a threepoint play and connecting on a leaner to get to within 1411 before Wildcat Summer Alamm ended the opening quarter with a fast-break layup for a 16-11 lead. It looked as though McKeel was going to run away with things, opening up the second with 10 of the first 11 points to push it to 26-12. But Lake Placid would push right back with an inside score from Shaquavia Gayle, a free throw each from Jenny Herstein and Annie Weber-Callahan and a Williams follow. Avree Carpenter split a pair at the line for the Cats, but so did Williams, to close the half with McKeel up 2719. The Dragons closed the gap a bit to start the third, with a Herstein free throw and Williams drive getting it to 27-22, but the Wildcats scored five straight to push the lead to an even 10. Williams answered with a three-point play and would score inside again after an Avery Reed bucket, but Carpenter would connect on two baskets and a free throw before the buzzer and the lead was up to 39-27.

Don Norton How important is color to fish? See BAIT, B4 Courtesy photo Senior Breauna Washington, a former Miss Avon Park, has helped the Walker Memorial Lady Eagles to a 16-0 record this season. Walker Memorial Academy is at it again, rolling their way through the girls basketball schedule with nary a loss to be seen. At 16-0 on the season, the Lady Eagles were coming off a 53-20 trouncing of Lake Wales Vanguard in the District 6-2A semifinal. The strong team defense that has been the teams trademark throughout the year continued in keeping the Panthers in check. Another staple of the season has been a balanced scoring attack for the Eagles, who were lead this night by freshman India Washington with 16 points. Not far behind was sophomore forward Toni Garcia with 12 points. The win moved topseeded Walker into the district title game against Lakelands Victory Christian Saturday night. On the season, the Eagles topped the Storm twice, by a 3726 count on Thursday, Dec. 12, and 44-32 on Tuesday, Jan. 7. Lady Eagles soar toward district tourney title Walker53Vanguard20 TAMPA Aseason long on soccer success came to an end Thursday night as Lake Placids Green Dragons fell at Berkeley Prep by a 4-1 score in the Class 2A Regional Quarterfinals. With very little knowledge of each other heading into the match, it was a night where both teams just went at it, both showing that they would be worthy of advancing. But it was the host Buccaneers who drew first blood, and quickly, as they got onto the board less than one minute into the contest. With the ball bouncing around in the box amid a flurry of legs, a Berkeley foot found it and powered it into the net. But from there, Lake Placid responded and played the style that had served them well all season, controlling possession for much of the half, most it on the Buccaneer end of the field. Despite the chances, however, the Dragons couldnt close out on the opportunities to tie it back up and the 1-0 Berkeley lead held at halftime. But things turned in the second half, with the Bucs stepping up their game and going on the attack to build up the lead. On one, a free kick was sent toward the goal where it was headed in from one in a group of six attacking players. Lake Placid would finally break through late, with senior captain Osvaldo Orduna booting in a Carlos Santana assist to put the Dragons on the board, albeit too little, too late. But while the season came to an end, it was a season to be proud to look back upon, which head coach James Ashley certainly did. This team has come so far, from just two wins all Soccer Dragons stopped by Bucs By DAN HOEHNE Friday night served as a somewhat promising bookend to the Blue Streaks eight-game winning streak, as they fell at Lakeland by a 49-40 score. For it was the Dreadnaughts that had given Sebring its last loss, running away with a 40-point win on the final day of the Tavaniere Tournament. From there, they had gotten two wins against county rival Avon Park, including Thursday night, and convincing wins over Hardee, Lemon Bay, Clewiston, Tenoroc and Lake Placid. And even Friday night, without point guard Connor Cook available do to a sore wrist, and with Gary Demarest going out early in the contest with a knee injury, Sebring gave Lakeland all they could handle. Maintaining a small lead throughout most of the game, by the final quarter, however, the short-handed Streaks began to fade and the Naughts rebounded for the win. Thursday grudge matchWith the regular-season schedule dwindling down to its final days, the Blue Streaks had themselves on a roll at just the right time. Having won seven in a row since that loss to Lakeland in late December, Sebring faced off with Avon Park in the ritualistic, lateseason tempest for both squads. And while the Streaks are, well streaking, the Red Devils have been a bit up and down lately and that trend continued down Thursday night as host Sebring took a 65-51 win. The Blue Streaks came out firing and took control early, racking up 21 first-quarter points and holding Avon Park to 12. They bumped the lead to double digits by halftime at 36-25 before the Devils put the defensive clamps on in the third, holding Sebring to just 10 points. But the Streak defense responded in kind as Avon Park could only muster 10 for the period themselves. And then the balanced Blue Streak attack stayed out in front as the Devils tried to climb back, taking a 19-16 edge over the final eight minutes to provide for the final margin. Sebring landed four players in double figures, with Connor Cook totaling 15 to lead the team. Gary Demarest added 13, Terrell Williams 12 and Quantrae Rouse 11. Blue Streaks hot streak ends at Lakeland Dan Hoehne/News-Sun files Terrell Williams and the Blue Streaks saw their eight-game win streak come to an end Friday night.

Associated PressINDIANAPOLIS The Pacers are adding size and scoring to the Eastern Conferences best team Saturday, signing free agent center Andrew Bynum for the rest of the season. Team officials did not release additional details of the contract. He is expected to join the team next week. Because Indiana had an open spot on its roster, it will not have to make a roster move to add the mercurial 7-foot-1, 285-pound backup to All-Star center Roy Hibbert. Bynum has played only 24 games since the 2011-12 season ended. He played with Cleveland before conduct detrimental to the team forced a trade to Chicago, which then released him. He was averaging 8.4 points and 5.3 rebounds this year with Cleveland and has career averages of 11.5 points and 7.7 rebounds. By DENNIS WASZAK Jr. Associated PressNEWYORK Pete Carroll and John Fox smiled as they stood and posed next to the Lombardi Trophy. By Sunday night, one of the Super Bowl coaches will be holding it up in victory. The other will be left thinking about next season. The trophy really does symbolize the ultimate challenge and competitiveness in our sport and in our world of coaching or playing, said Carroll, whose Seattle Seahawks take on Foxs Denver Broncos on Sunday. To dream about being in this position as a kid and then working all through the years of coaching, battling and watching other guys do it, and for the first time for us its a tremendous honor. Carroll and Fox fulfilled their final media obligations Friday, a day after their players finished theirs. The coaches appeared relaxed as they answered questions for 30 minutes, j oking with each other and the audience. Both teams will have a walkthrough Saturday, and then its time to play. Finally. I think this is the pinnacle of it, Fox said. Unlike different levels of football, theres only one happy camper at that end. Heres a quick look at a few of the other Super Bowl story lines from Friday:CH-CH-CHANGES NFLCommissioner Roger Goodell held his annual preSuper Bowl news conference, and painted the picture of an ever-evolving league. There was talk of adding playoff teams, monitoring instant replay from league headquarters in New York and possibly creating a set of guidelines to prevent lockerroom bullying. Speaking at a theater in midtown Manhattan, he said theres a lot of benefits to increasing the postseason field from 12 to 14 teams, citing a more competitive league. That proposal would require Yes votes from 24 of the 32 owners. Goodell said the competition committee will make recommendations to all the owners about having replays from all games overseen by the league office, similar to the centralized replay systems used by Major League Baseball and the NHL. What we all want is consistency and fairness in our officiating, Goodell said. Another focal point, according to Goodell, will be preventing the kind of alleged bullying that rocked the Miami Dolphins this season.OTHER ISSUESGoodell did not respond directly to questions about whether other cold-weather cities with outdoor stadiums could host NFLchampionship games. But some well-timed fake snow made for a funny moment. Among the other topics the commissioner discussed included him saying the NFL is working to convince a federal judge in Philadelphia that the tentative $765 million settlement reached with former players who sued the league over concussions can provide the kind of benefits that we intended, and were confident that well get there. Goodell added that the league is not actively considering allowing players to use marijuana for medical reasons; placing a franchise in London is closer to reality than a year ago; and he deflected a question about whether hed call a Native American a Redskin faceto-face, saying, Lets not forget this is the name of a football team.TALKING ABOUT PRACTICEThe Broncos and Seahawks went through their final full practices of the season. Denver used the indoor field at the New York Jets practice facility in Florham Park, N.J., for its nearly 90minute practice after Fox determined that the outdoor synthetic field was too hard. Defensive tackle Sione Fua was the only non-participant. Hes nursing a calf injury and is listed as doubtful. The Seahawks practiced for 77 minutes at the Giants facility in East Rutherford, N.J., opening the five doors at the Quest Diagnostics Center to simulate the mid30s temperatures expected Sunday night. Seattle is healthy entering the game, with all 61 roster and practice squad players participating fully.NO THREATThe FBI said a suspicious powder mailed to several locations in New York and New Jersey, including at least five hotels near the site of Sundays Super Bowl, appeared not to be dangerous. The agency said further testing was being conducted on the substance. White powder also was found in a letter sent to former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giulianis business in New York City, where police said preliminary tests showed it posed no threat.HELLO, GOVERNORAday after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said he wont be going to the Super Bowl, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced he will be attending. Cuomo, who was offered a complimentary ticket by the NFLbut is paying the $2,000 price tag with campaign funds, will join New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at the game at MetLife Stadium. New York and New Jersey are co-hosts. Meanwhile, de Blasio said hes watching the game in New York with his teenage son in part due to the high cost of tickets.

tance of breaklines and migration routes, as well as how to fish different types of water under different types of conditions. And of course, we brought along plenty of spoonplugs, spoonplug rods and reels and no-bo-line to be sold at the conclusion of the meeting. But one point that Buck always made during these seminars was that color had absolutely no influence on a fishs decision to strike a lure. That one statement always evoked the same question from the audience. Buck if color makes no difference to the fish, why do you sell lures in all different colors? Bucks answer was always the same. I make my lures, just as every other lure manufacturer does in different colors for the fishermen, not the fish! Buck would go on to explain that bass have a peasized brain and unlike a human being they lack many of the capabilities we humans take for granted. He would go on give this example do you think a bass will swim up to a black plastic worm hopping up and down in a downed tree, study it and swim away because its the wrong color? Do you think the bass chose not to eat it because he was in a mood to eat a blue worm or a watermelon red? Buck would just laugh and say of course not. The bass could care less. To him its just food and if it happens to be red, so be it. Its been 40 years or more since those seminars and Buck Perry is no longer with us, having departed this world at the ripe old age of 92 back in 2009. But for me and hundreds, perhaps thousands of followers, he truly made us think about the importance of color. I know you probably have a story of your own where youre certain that color made a difference. And maybe it did, but before you write Buck Perry off as being wrong, consider other potential reasons why that particular color may have worked better. Did the clouds move in, did the sun come out, was it later in the day, earlier in the day. Did the water warm up, cool down? Did the barometric pressure rise or fall? How about the wind? Did it pick up, slack off or change direction? The list of variables is almost unending, yet all or any of these factors may have contributed to the fact that youre suddenly catching fish. Oh, and dont forget, are you fishing new water? You see, we catch fish or dont catch fish on what we choose to fish with. Whats funny is that when we catch fish, we attribute it to the color of the bait, and yet when we dont catch fish with the same color, its not the fault of the bait, its because the fish just arent biting, or the clouds moved in, or the sun came out. And on and on and on. Biologists, who have studied bass and specifically, how they see color, claim that a bass is near-sighted and at best, in clear water can only distinguish color at a range of a few feet. And unlike humans who are able to see the full spectrum of blues, but lack the full range of reds, bass see the full spectrum of red. Im not sure this means much because like Buck, I have a hard believing a bass swims up to a plastic bait or a hard bait and says to himself Oh, I was looking for blueberry and swims away. I think if he sees the bait, hell strike it. As Ive argued for years, I believe bass respond to sound. Not the type of sound that we humans hear, but sound as its transmitted through water. Sound travels five times faster in water than in air and bass are equipped with lateral lines that pick up this sound or vibration and allow them to target a potential food source. When your bait, whether its hard bait or soft bait enters the water, it produces sound. When you move the bait, depending on its size and characteristics, it continues to produce sound. And even lying still on the bottom, the slight movement of the bait by water currents continues to send that sound to a bass in search of food. The bass, I believe, hones in on that sound and begins his search. Once he finds the object producing the sound, if question remains, its likely to be can I get it in my mouth. I just cant imagine that color figures into the equation. I would agree however, that in certain water claritys or murky conditions, or perhaps in very bright or shady situations, color may help the bass to see the bait, but once seen, the bass will strike it regardless of color. Now you might ask yourself, if color doesnt matter, why do I run a fishing tackle store full of hundreds of plastic baits, as well as hard baits in every color in the rainbow. My answer would echo Buck Perry for the fisherman. Let me know what you think. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

McKeel would answer back with baskets from Carpenter, Ariel Kelly and Tanner Esposito, but so would the Dragons with hoops from WeberCallahan, Williams and Kailin Brown. But the problems would soon come at the free throw line. With chances to cut further into the lead down the stretch, the Lady Dragons would go just 1-of-7 from the charity stripe and the Wildcats were able to stay out of reach. Too many open looks were missed, open lay-ups and free throws, Coyne said. You cant do that and expect to win anyway, especially against a program as good as McKeel. But these girls worked hard all season and kept improving, she continued. They never let up tonight and put themselves in position to get a win, but we just couldnt quite get there. Still slated for a date in the Class 4ARegional Quarterfinal, Lake Placid will head on the road to face the District 10-4A tournament champion. Academy of the Holy Names and Tampa Catholic squared off to decide their tournament Saturday night.Streaks stoppedDown in Englewood, things didnt go any better for the Lady Blue Streaks as they too settled for the runner-up slot in the District 11-5Atournament. Having lost to Lemon Bay twice during the regular season, Sebring had made it a much closer game in the second meeting, giving hope that this could be the game to get them over the hump. But the Lady Rays werent about to let their top-seed slip away as they held the Streaks off in a 5743 win. Both teams now head into the Class 5ARegionial Quarterfinals, with Lemon Bay hosting their first match against the District 5-12Arunner-up, while Sebring will likely travel to Cape Coral to face the Seahawks. Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Shaquavia Gayle finds the baseline cut off by McKeels Avree Carpenter Friday night in the Wildcats win to claim the District 9-4A tournament title. LP, Sebring hit road for regional last year, he said. This year we finished 15-3-2 and had a 15-game unbeaten streak. We lost to a good team tonight, but didnt give up our fight, he continued. Anyone that has seen us play this year has seen us play whistle to whistle and they did that again tonight. Im so proud of the heart of this team and the hard work they put in to make this season a memorable one.Sebring shut downAnd while it was a memorable season in itsown right for the Blue Streak soccer squad, things didnt end so memorably Thursday night at Merritt Island as the Mustangs stampeded Sebring with an 8-0 win in the Class 3ARegional Quarterfinals. Still, through the ups and downs of the season, and in a tough district lead by Auburndale, who won their Thursday match by a 6-2 score over Eau Galle, the Blue Streaks persevered and can be proud of finishing both the regular season and district tournament as the runner up. Players for both the Dragons and Sebring will be lost to graduation, on this continual cycle that is high school sports. But it is through reaching such levels as a team that establish a tone and lays the groundwork for those returning players to build upon and reach for more. Soccer ends for Dragons, Streaks Bait color not key to getting bites They never let up tonight and put themselves in position to get a win. r

4 News-Sun | Community Showcase | February 2014 Metro News Service Home improvements are typically made to improve the functionality and look of a home, but renovations also can increase the value of a home. Certain changes to a home can make it more attractive to prospective buyers, while other renovations may make a home less appealing. For example, a complete overhaul of an outdated kitchen is often a smart financial move, while installing a pool or hot tub may not be worth the cost to homeowners. Separating the good from the bad renovations makes smart financial sense, and homeowners looking to improve their homes resale values may want to avoid the following projects.Bedroom and garage conversionsChanging a rooms traditional function often turns off buyers. For example, turning a garage into a home gym might seem like a great idea for you, but it may not be so appealing to prospective buyers. Buyers can certainly reconvert the space, but they would consider the costs of such a conversion when making their offers on the home. Stylized colors on trims and roomsPainting over unappealing colors is a project many homeowners can handle. However, some may be discouraged by a home that has too many bright colors or textures on the walls and trims. Buyers often want homes that are move-in ready, meaning they can get settled in before undertaking large projects. A living room painted in purple or zebra print may not fit the design scheme of many buyers. Dark colors do not easily disappear, and taping off and painting trimwork or changing it entirely can be equally time-consuming. Stick with neutral colors when selling a home, even if this means giving rooms a new coat of paint before putting your house on the market.Outdoor hot tubs and indoor spa tubsMany people find soaking in a bubbling brew of hot water quite inviting. But buyers often do not want to inherit a used hot tub. Although hot tubs are cleaned and maintained with sanitizing chemicals, some people may view them as unsanitary. Removing a hot tub can be laborintensive. And much like a pool, a hot tub may not be appealing to buyers with young children.Removing closetsCloset space is often high on buyers priority lists. Turning closet space into an office or removing a closet to make a room bigger may be fine for those who are staying put. But these modifications can be a turn-off to prospective buyers.Too many featuresIn an effort to keep up with the Joneses, some homeowners will overimprove their home to the point that it outshines all others on the street. There is a case for having nice things, but homeowners may struggle to sell a home that is disproportionate to other homes in the area. Practice moderation when making improvements to attract more buyers. These suggestions are merely guidelines and should not replace the advice of a reputable real estate agent when marketing a home. Housing features and what buyers are interested in vary across the country. Some items may be desireable in specific areas but undesireable elsewhere. Making informed choices before renovating can help homeowners recoup the largest share of their investments. These home improvements may actually lower home value METRO Though luxuries,pools or hot tubs are not always attractive to prospective home buyers.

6 News-Sun | Community Showcase | February 2014 Family Features When the weather conditions are just right, a relaxing evening spent on the porch or patio is perfect for enjoying good company and the beauty of the outside world. Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy these comforts regardless of the season? Bring the rejuvenating, refreshing and calming effects of nature into your personal space with a few simple touches. The best place for incorporating these organic elements is the space closest to your patio or outdoor space. Let this area serve as a transitional space where the outside world connects with the comforts of your interior. Here are a few tips to make your outside world an extension of your home: Choose natural materials For chairs, sofas, rugs, pillows and other dcor, choose natural patterns, textures and fibers. Pair materials like hemp, rattan, bamboo, wicker and jute, with softer textures, such as cottons, velvet and velour for added dimension. Light up the room Nothing pleases the senses like natural light, so be sure to rid windows and doorways of heavy drapery and other barriers. Bring this beautiful resource inside by adding a retrofit folding patio door, such as the JELD-WEN(r) W-4500, which uses floor-supported technology for a simpler fit into an existing door opening. Choose Natural Colors Pick chairs, sofas, coffee tables and buffet pieces that are white or ivory. These light colors will make the outdoor tints of greens, blues and browns pop. For the woodsy look, choose faux bois upholstery, a textile pattern that mimics the grain of wood. Spruce up the view Add trees or other lush landscapes to serve as your focal point when you look outside. Attach window boxes and plant flowers and shrubbery in colors that complement your dcor.

Frame it The best way to incorporate your favorite natural nuances is to photograph it. Do you have photographs from that trip to the Grand Canyon or Glacier National Park? Display those beautiful memories and scenery. Dust off your favorite old photos and place them in neutral-toned frames to set throughout the space.

10 News-Sun | Community Showcase | February 2014 BROWN, JEN; 5.104"; 2.66"; Black; feb showcase; 00035129 Family Features After returning home from a long day at work, a weekend soccer tournament or an all-day shopping excursion, its natural to want to drop everything and relax. However, literally dropping everything can cause a tremendous amount of clutter in the home, leading to stress, misplaced items and wasted time. To eliminate the clutter that busy lifestyles create, try establishing designated drop zones throughout your house to regain a sense of order. Dont worry, you can still drop everything and relax when you come home just drop everything in the right spot. Entryway As the first and last access point of your home, a lot of activity occurs here. Coats, scarves, hats and bags are dropped everywhere, while dirty shoes are kicked off and left behind. Basically, the entrance to your home can become a minefield. To control unruly entryway clutter, try creating a drop zone near the door. The addition of a coat rack or hooks make it easy to hang up outerwear, while a storage bench, like ClosetMaids 3Cube Bench, is a convenient place to take off shoes and neatly stow them away. Kitchen Since the kitchen is the heart of the home, many family members congregate here. Establish a corner of the kitchen counter to drop lunch boxes, bottles and coffee mugs used throughout the day. To prevent a pile-up of papers and misplaced items, set up a command center with enough space to file mail and bills and store your keys and other small essentials. Living Room Dont let relaxation be delayed because of disorganization. Depending on the size of your living room and how you use the space, you may need to establish several drop zones. For example, a coffee table tray or basket is ideal for storing remotes and chargers. Add storage cubes with bins as a convenient place to store and hide laptop cords, tablets, gaming equipment and childrens toys. Consider labeling a bin for each family member to drop or stow their stuff. Bedroom To clear clothing clutter, use a valet rod to hang up tomorrows outfit or clothes that need to be taken to the tailor or dry cleaner. Additionally, try designating a dresser drawer as a drop zone for jewelry, watches, your wallet or other valuables. Make it a habit to use your strategically placed drop zones and your house will be organized and clutter free in no time.

Control the Clutter with drop zones FAMILY FEATURES Having a place designated for dropping items can help ease clutter and make it easier to relax
