I just want to be a part of making a difference, Sebring City Council candidate Lenard Carlisle said Thursday morning to the NewsSun. This city election season marks Carlisles second attempt at becoming a part of the political world in the small city. Carlisle ran against current council members John Grifn and Scott Stanley dur ing the previous city election and was defeated. The persistent businessman, however, has no trouble getting back in the candidate seat once again. A lifelong resident, Carlisle is a third-generation Sebring native who is xed on doing all he can to help, enhance and maintain the city. Owner of Living Waters Ser vices, Inc., the citrus irrigation expert is certainly no stranger to hard work. I come from a real working class family. My entire family my dad, my mom, my dads sister, her husband and me all worked at the same restaurant downtown many years ago Fishers, Carlisle said. Table bussing was a pretty easy gig back then but after being drafted by the United States Army and growing up quite a bit, Carlisle ultimately returned to the home he loves to pursue a career. I love Sebring. My favorite thing (about Sebring) is the races. I grew up around them, and my son and I both enjoy Chump Car racing every year, Carlisle said. Though his main hobby involves a more fun side of Sebring, Carlisle is dedicated to helping the city grow and ourish.

Bobby Lee Mathis, 15, was charged Monday with rst-degree felony arson of a building with people present. He was later taken to the Juve nile Assessment Center in Bartow. The incident took place at approximately 2:30 p.m. Monday and was investigated by Deputy David L. Lightsey Jr., school resource ofcer with the Highland County Sheriffs Ofce. Cer tain details were withheld from arrest reports because of an open investigation, according to Sheriffs Ofce Public Information Ofcer Nell Hays. Lightsey heard about the soap dispenser on re over the school radio at approximately 2:30 p.m., arrest reports said. When staff arrived at the mens restroom in Hall 2, they found re damage to the dispenser and the smell of smoke, but no ames. The deputy, along with an assistant principal, re viewed the schools sur veillance camera, reports said, and saw Mathis entering the bathroom and not coming out for two minutes. After Mathis left the bathroom, reports said, another student entered the bathroom then came out immediately and re turned with a school employee to report the re. School ofcials estimated damage at $100$200. Lightsey and dean LaVaar Scott then got Mathis out of class and took him to Scotts ofce, where they asked if he had anything on him that he shouldnt have. Mathis response was re dacted from reports. Scott asked Mathis if he lit the soap dispenser on re, and Mathis said, No. Scott then told Mathis the surveillance system showed him as the only one going into the bathroom. Based on that and fur ther redacted information, Lightsey found probable cause to arrest and charge Mathis, since the re took place in the school while it was in session and occupied, reports said.

A4 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, February 7, 2014 www.newssun.com VIEWPOINTS NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com ANOTHE R VIE W The Florida Legislature will meet in one month to kick off the 2014 session, and some hopeful signs have appeared regarding the publics right to know, as well as bills encour aging the ethical conduct of our public of cials. But a troubling effort is also underway in the Legislature to restrict the publics right to know the names of candidates for top job po sitions in public universities and colleges. House Bill 135 and a companion Senate Bill 728 would exempt information from public records regarding applicants for presidents, provosts, or deans of state universities or Florida public colleges. The bills would also provide exemptions from public-meeting re quirements for any meetings held for the pur poses of identifying or vetting applicants for presidents, provosts, or deans. The bill would then require the release of names of specied applicants within a certain time frame. Legislators should stop these bills attempting to restrict the publics right to know. Florida has established some of the most open access laws in the 50 states. But that access sometimes makes people nervous. By excluding names of candidates in the beginning and middle parts of the executive search at our universities and colleges, the Legislature would begin taking the people and their rights down a slippery slope. Today, its candidates for top positions at colleges. If that happens, whats to stop future legisla tors from attempting to restrict information about candidates for city or county manager positions, or superintendent positions, or really any taxpayer-paid positions? The Legislature should avoid this slippery slope. Lets keep the hiring process for all public positions including colleges and universities as open as possible. The Legislature should focus on protecting public access this session, while improving opportunities for public ofcials to educate themselves on ethics. Its what will keep Flor ida government out of the shadows.An editorial from the News-Journal in Daytona Beach.State should keep all government in the sunshineBelieve it or not, there is good news when it comes to income inequality. It turns out Republicans nally believe that the gap between rich and poor has become a problem. The bad news is, according to a new poll, is that Republicans think the best solution is cutting the taxes for the wealthy and big corporations so money and opportunity can rain down on the poor. Addressing poverty by ensuring that cash does not become lonely in the wallets of the wealthy is what passes for a Republican governing philosophy these days, and it is exactly why Barack Obama has decided to go it alone on income inequality. The issue isnt that income inequality exists but that the wealthiest 1 percent has achieved the nancial equivalent of escape velocity, leaving us poor folk back here on Planet Broke. In 1982, the top 1 percent highest-earning families took home one out of ev ery $10. Now they get more than twice that, leaving the other 99 percent of us to make do on less. The last time it was this bad was the Gilded Age, and majorities of Republicans, Democrats and In dependents agree its time to do something about it. As was made clear in his State of the Union address, the problem Obama faces is that his potential governing partners believe in an economic ideology roughly equivalent to fairy dust but stand resolutely opposed to thinking happy thoughts. Herein lies the Hell that Republicans envision for the poor: Most Republicans (51 percent) believe that the poor are poor due to a lack of effort, that our economy is generally fair to most Americans (53 percent), and that most people who want to get ahead can make it if theyre willing to work hard (76 percent). In other words, Republicans believe that income inequality is that fault of lazy poor people, which is why they want to put more money into the hands of rich people who are do ing all the work. Demographically, the Republi can Party dominated and dependent upon aging white men is literally dying, but the sunset must cast a bewitching light. Only in the hazy glow of magical thinking could it make sense that Mitt Romneys effective tax rate of 13.9 percent takes too much. Most Re publicans (59 percent) agree that lowering taxes on the wealthy and corporations to encour age investment and economic growth is the solution to income inequality. The notion that the only way to help the poor is for government to encourage the rich to become even richer is gospel among Re publicans, most of whom (65 per cent) believe that government aid to the poor does more harm than good by making people too dependent on government. It seems not to occur to our self-satised ruling oligarchy that if the wealthy require incentives to create jobs, then it aint the poor who are dependent upon government. During increasing income inequality, Reaganomics has become indefensible economically, politically, and morally. Any economic theory that assumes a majority of ones voters are lazy good-for-nothings should preclude ever getting a majority of votes, but cest la red states. It qualies as radical thinking among Republicans that the wealthy should pay their fair share of taxes and a worker should get a fair wage. Extending unemployment benets is well-nigh seditious. Instead, Re publican dogma would have the long-term unemployed accept not only a minimum-wage job but also the blame for the poverty that came with each paycheck as their due for being lazy. Agreeing that income inequal ity is bad does not count in the Republicans favor if they blame it on the poor. As long as it easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than it is to get a minimum wage increase and an extension of unemployment benets through Congress, Obama will have to go it alone if he wants to get anything done.Jason Stanford is a Democratic consultant, author, and nationally syndicated columnist.

Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff.Theres good and bad news on income inequality GUEST COLUMNJason Stanford When the Hindenburg ew over Lakehurst Naval Air Station in New Jersey on May 6, 1937, as it burst into ames, causing 35 fatalities, WLS radios Herbert Morri sons eyewitness account became one that would be remembered for the ages: Oh, the humanity! Were now witnessing the explosion and lightning nosedive of Gov. Chris Christies carefully cultivated and executed political branding. Some suggest he wont be politically destroyed if it turns out he wasnt directly involved in the intentional slowing of trafc on the George Wash ington Bridge, and if it isnt proven he held money des ignated for Hurricane Sandy relief hostage because Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zim mer didnt green-light a redevelopment project. But its now clear his political image has been tarnished, if not shattered. Christie now joins the list of political gures who had been considered political dynamos because they were either charismatic or could attract votes beyond their own political sports team but crashed and burned. Some (former Minneso ta Gov. Jesse Ventura and former California Gov. Ar nold Schwarzenegger) came from the world of entertainment or sports, made it to the state level and proved to be lousy politicians or administrators. Christie joins the category of the politician who became a national gure then saw his credibility swiftly collapse. Weve seen massive crash and burns before. In 1988, we saw Sen. Gary Hart (D-Co.), a Kennedy associate (and some claimed a Kennedy imitator) who rose in the polls and dominated the news media in his bid for the Democratic Presidential nomination. Amid rumors he wasnt faithful to his wife, he dared the media to fol low him. They did, exposing his affair with Donna Rice, making the name Gary Hart and the dish topped rice a popular punch line. Hart was like a shooting star who zoomed up, skyrock eted down, then dropped out of Presidential-contender sight. He suspended his campaign, and when he reentered he got just 4 per cent of the vote in the New Hampshire primary. This the biggest parallel to whats happening to Christie. The Hart scandal didnt involve allegations of cor ruption or abuse of power like the scandals swirling around Christie. But Hart had been seen as an upand-coming Democrat. The camera loved him and he seemed to be someone destined for either the White House or a great cabinet job. The rapidity and totality of his descent was breathtaking. Hart went on to have a highly distinguished career as a professor, writer, author, commentator and public speaker. But politically? He was damaged goods. Then there was former Sen. John Edwards (D-N.C.) whose brand never quite put him over the top. His im age was of a sincere, caring person who talked from the heart. It turned out he actually talked out of a lower part of the anatomy when it was proven he betrayed his terminally ill wife, his staff, and his followers. The word is overused, but he was a liar. Yet another stunning de scent was seen 2012 with conservative Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry, whose advance billing described him as a formidable political master, a charismatic gure who would have the mon ey, charisma and smarts to get the Republican nomination. But after he underper formed in debates, and after his (in)famous Oops debate brain freeze, his support collapsed faster than Mel Gibsons invitations to bar mitzvahs. All three politicos had per sonas created by their actions and words as politicians, their political positioning, their skillful staffs and a media that covered what them extensively and reported how people perceived them. But when they stumbled, perceptions about them were quickly negatively redened in the publics mind. Ive said dont count Chris tie out yet. But it increasingly looks like Christie faces more, not fewer problems. Some other shoes could drop. He now looks done as serious Presidential prospect, and its so sad: he had positioned himself in Amer icas middle, became a cultural personality due to appearances on late night shows and parody videos, and seemed different than most tiresome politicians. That status is now gone for ever. Oh, the humanity.Joe Gandelman is a veteran journalist who wrote for newspapers overseas and in the United States.

BRITTONbeen established for Musselman. It was announced that No one person would be running it, encouraging people to add what information they knew to the site. Early in the week, the page had struggled to reach double-digit interest and comments about the story have been mixed be tween supporters, critics and those asking for additional information. Musselman was arrested after repeated visits by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission asking her to stop feeding bears and warning her she was in violation of state statute. Ofcials of the FWC say it appears that some citi zens do not understand the consequences of feeding bears, indicating that it is more than picnic baskets snatched by Yogi and Boo Boo at Jellystone Park. Bears are normally shy and retiring and that is the behavior that allows us to co-exist with them, said FWC spokesman Gary Morse. However, humans feeding bears short-cir cuits that behavior. Morse said that bears are opportunistic creatures and literally can smell food up to ve miles away. He said it is believed that as many as four bears had been frequenting the Mus selman property. Bringing the bears into such a populated area, said Morse, could easily have created a dangerous condition for residents, children and pets who might have come in con tact with the bears as they searched for food. The problem comes when bears have no fear of people. Thats when we have them breaking into sheds and even screenedin porches to get at food that has not been secured properly, he said. Over the years there have been periodic reports of such incidents, most ly in more rural areas of Highlands County. In one instance, a calf was reportedly killed by a bear in a small barn near the Sebring Regional Airport. The good news, said Morse, is that this is a time of year when bears are becoming less active, and be cause food sources are less plentiful, they tend to hibernate. He said the idea that bears would starve without help from humans is quite simply, incorrect. The black bears that live in Florida are the same kind of black bears that live in Alaska and they have much less opportu nity to feed up there than they do down here, he said.

Its hard to say what your main plan is for the council (if youre elect ed) though. Until you get in there and see what you can do, its just hard to say. Carlisle did speak briey about a plaguing problem that has long been a thorn in the side of the Sebring council: Harder Hall. What I can say is I would like to see some thing happen with Harder Hall. Sometimes you just have to cut your losses and just move on. Id like to see it cleaned up, updated and get it back on the payroll somehow. I dont think its right to let it sit like that, Carlisle said. Carlisle current ly serves on the Sebring Code Enforcement Board. If elected, he would resign from the board to fulll his duties as a council member. Carlisle will be in attendance at the NewsSuns Candidate Fo rum on Monday, Feb. 17 at the Jack Stroup Civic Center.

Commissioners also struggled with the idea of a sidewalk through the area, with an idea at one time that the walkway might be jumped across the Parkway for a span. However, commissioners agreed for long-term planning that a single, continuous walkway would be the safest. The nal piece of the puzzle will be the acquisition of the southernmost parcel, known as the Gilbert property. Those negotiations still are ongoing. Once the nal purchase is made, county ofcials say they will try to work with the Yarbrough to coordinate site improvements. We need to do this in conjunction with them. They are going to be putting in a driveway so it only makes sense that we do it at the same time so nothing has to be redone, said Highlands County Engineer Ramon Gavarette. As it looks currently, there will still be trafc backups for the forseeable fu ture. However, Gavarette hopes to have things in place so that work can begin at the end of the school year. Obviously if you want to do improvements there, the optimum time to do it would be the summer months, he said. PARKWAY FROM PAGE A1 BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterAVON PARK Drainage has been a problem in Avon Parks Southside district since the last time the city made improvements. South Delaney (Avenue) residents had water in their houses, said Ar nold Davis, advisory board member for the citys Community Redevelopment Agency Southside District. The advisory board, serving as the Citizens Advisory Task Force for a state Community Development Block Grant application, hopes that in addition to surface improvements, the city and CRA can improve drainage, as well. City-contracted engi neer Carl Cool of Cool and Cobb Engineering Inc. has drawn up initial plans and provided them to Administrative Services Director Maria Sutherland at Avon Park City Hall. He said once Avon Park starts improvements, drainage may only get worse. If we put curbs on both sides, the water will only get deeper, Cool said. Fortunately, the city owns a vacant lot at a low point on South Del aney Avenue between Hal McRae Boulevard and East Green Street the perfect spot for a retention pond. Plus, Cool said, the Astatula sand would soak up the water. One citizen at the meeting suggested Cool install a sump by lling the pond with a layer of gravel, but Cool advised that the Southwest Florida Wa ter Management District would certify pond capacity based only on the space between the rocks 30 percent of the volume. The SWFWMD wants retention ponds to handle once-in-20-year storms, Cool said. Davis asked if the CRA could shift the main focus to drainage, but Suther land said that would mean applying for a stormwater mitigation grant, not a community redevelopment grant. Davis also suggested sending water to a nearby retention pond on an old railroad right of way, but Cool said it would be too far to reach with pipes and too far uphill for water to ow. Sutherland asked if Cool could make the reten tion pond pretty. Cool said engineers use straight lines and are not good at sculpturing stuff. Davis asked if CSX Transportation might be willing to talk about in stalling a retention pond on its property, but Cool warned that would hold up the redevelopment grant for another year. Beatrice Peterson, a southside resident, be moaned the fact that streetscaping improve ments had already taken ve years since they were rst discussed. Cool estimated the project to widening sidewalks, realign parking spaces and install curbs and lighting would cost $343,200 for Delaney Avenue, $195,000 for Hal McRae Boulevard and $53,895 for a 10 per cent contingency fund for an approximate total of $600,000. Sutherland said once the city adds on administrative fees and other costs, the project would use the whole $750,000 grant. Advisory board members conrmed the project area: all curbs and sidewalks along South Delaney Avenue from East Green Street to Fred Conner Street and along Hal McRae Boulevard from Tulane Drive to South Car olina Avenue, including intersections. Davis asked if the project area could extend drainage improvements to the triangle at the junction of Lake Tulane Drive and South Verona Avenue. Sutherland said that might come under unmet needs through the grant. Other questions included installing antique-style pedestal lamps along the street at $2,000 each versus overhead lamps on utility poles. Advisory board member Teresa Whiteside also discussed rerouting power lines un derground, which Cool said would be expensive. Davis asked Cool if Duke Energy would be willing to do any underground installation pro bono, but Cool found that unlikely. Ill get you out there to help me beg (Duke Ener gy), Cool said.

www.newssun.comFriday, February 7, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A9 SPORTS This headline caught my eye as I read through the latest issue of B.A.S.S. Times magazine. Written by Robert Montgomery, the article raises some interesting points regarding slot limits and lakes with stunted sh growth. Ray Scott, Founder and past President of B.A.S.S. (Bass Anglers Sportsmen Society) held his rst tournament in 1968. In those early tournaments, daily bass limits as well as size restrictions were minimal and slot limits didnt exist. For the rst couple of years, anglers would bring in their bass on stringers, in coolers and cloth bags, usually dead. There were no livewells and little to no effort was put forth to keep the sh alive. As one might expect, it wasnt long before the public became concerned that bass tournaments would deplete our shery. The public outcry was tremendous and Ray Scott knew he had to do something or his newly formed bass shing organization, as well as future tournaments would be doomed. Fishing for any species, including bass was always looked upon as a great past-time with a bonus if you did well. George Perry, back in the 1920s caught the cur rent world record bass a whopping 22-pound, 4-ounce monster and promptly lleted it out and invited the neighbors for a fresh cooked meal. Eating the sh you caught was a given. I grew up in a family of shermen, catching and eating jumbo perch, bluegills, walleye and bass. Our family freezer was always full of fresh lets and we probably ate as many bass as we did other species. In 1970, Scott began to promote catch and release in all tournaments and it caught on immediately. Soon afterward, boat manufacturers began building boats with aer ated livewells and bonus points were given to anglers weighing in bass that were alive. For me and millions of other anglers, this new concept, catch and release made sense, and whether we shed a tour nament or we were just out to have some fun, we started releasing our bass in the hopes of allowing them to grow larger and catching them again in the future. Going back to Montgomerys article, he states protective slot limits have proved to be a good tool for improving bass sheries during their more than 30 years of use. But arguably they would have been and still could be far more effective if anglers followed them as sheries managers intended, but about the same time as slots were recognized by wildlife agencies as a strategy for growing larger bass, anglers began to embrace catch and release. Too often, those two work at cross purposes, which has prompted managers to rethink how and when to use protective slots, if at all. Jason Dotson, an FWC section research leader stated recently that har vest rates are low; usually less than 10-percent and most sheries biologists are not as concerned with overshing as they were in the 1980s. Now were more concerned with growing trophies and providing larger bodied sh than being sustainable, he stated recently. A protected slots pur pose is two-fold. First, it is intended to shield a certain size of sh, say 15 to 24, from harvest. Second, its intended to encourage the harvest of sh smaller than 15 to reduce competition for for age and habitat brought about by too many bass. When anglers follow both practices releasing all sh between 15 and 24 and keeping the Eat more bass, catch bigger fish?

BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comLake Placids season, which had been on the upswing in recent weeks, came to an end Tuesday as their local and district nemesis, Avon Park, took it to them in the District 9-4A tournament seminal 69-39. We just did not shoot well tonight, head coach Dan Coomes said after ward. Nothing was going in. When youre not scoring any points, everybody gets demoralized. While the Dragons had a hot hand shooting in Mondays win over Mulberry, they were ice cold from the start, not getting on the board until an Anfernee Munnings free throw with 2:10 left in the rst quarter. By then, Avon Park poured in 12 points, mostly on fast breaks and inside scores attacking the basket, which was the game plan. We really emphasized after our last game to get the ball inside and attack from the inside out, Devil head coach Mar ty OHora said. We were very perimeter oriented when we last played, taking a lot of three-point shots, we took very few tonight. But they did hit two of those late in the rst, as the forays to the rim had pulled the defense in to free up Dameon Braswell and Chemoya Louis for long jumpers to build the lead to 18-6 after one. Lake Placid did heat up a bit in the second, outscoring Avon Park 14-13, despite hitting just 3-of-8 free throws. Tyrone Perry and John Mason each scored twice in the frame, but Munnings had ve points and Nick Tuason added four and the lead stood at 3219 at the half.Devils, Streaks cruise into district title tilts Dan Hoehne/News-SunTyrone Perry fought through a tenacious Lake Placid defense to score a game-high 16 points for Avon Park in Tuesdays seminal win over the Dragons.

It is a revamped lineup for Sebring, with the graduations of Joy Donglason, Morgan Heston and Kelly Broen, and the only returning varsity starters from a season ago being Nisha Patel and Micaela DeVane. Though it was actually Patel who took the one loss on the day, falling to Lady Tiger Anessa Leyva at No. 1 singles. DeVane answered back and evened it up for the Streaks with a 6-1, 6-0 win at No. 2 singles over Jordan Pencarinna. And then it was the newcomers that pushed Sebring ahead. At No. 3 singles, Alaina Keith topped Alyssa Middler 6-0, 6-1, and Amanda Rios went 6-1, 6-0 at No. 4 over Alexa Middler. Finishing up the singles matches, No. 5 player Ashley Castelli took a 6-0, 6-1 win over Susan Wallar. Patel got a little pay back when she teamed with DeVane at No. 1 doubles and got a 6-1, 6-0 win over Leyva and Pencarinna. And Keith and Castelli duplicated that score in the No. 2 doubles match to get the win over Wallar and Carolina Garcia. With the rst win of the season under their belts, the Lady Streaks were back at it Thursday, traveling to Lake Placid to face the Lady Dragons.

Gus Owens and Mason combined for 15 points in the period, two more than Lake Placid would muster, and Josh Jones added four and Perry a bucket to blow the game open and push the lead to 53-32. Perry then added six to his game-high 16 in the fourth as the Devils put the nishing touches on the 30-point win. Perry was joined in double gures by Mason with 15 and Owens with 13. We had open looks and did not make them, Coomes said. I dont know how many we had bounce inside the rim and bounce out. Its like being snake-bit when that keeps happening. But this is a great group of kids, most of whom will be back next year, he continued. Im happy with the work theyve put in this season and look forward to next year. For the Devils, the win moves them to tonights championship game against McKeel and assures them a spot in the Class 4A playoffs. And coach OHora likes what hes seeing out of his team. This was one of the few games this year where we had almost every body with a few assists and looking for each other, he said. They really looked like a team out there and this is the time of the year when you need to play your best ball. Avon Park tips off tonight at the Frostproof gym at 7 p.m.Blue Streaks hammer HardeeSEBRING The Blue Streaks took care of business in their District 115A seminal, besting the visiting Wildcats 73-55. The aggressive, scrappy and physical Hardee squad was looking for the upset and had played Sebring tough in both meetings during the regular season. But Sebring was more than enough to handle them, making the most of their size advantage in crashing the boards and limiting the Cats secondchance opportunities. On the night, the Streaks outrebounded the Wildcats 43-25. Luke Ancrum, all 6-foot-5 of him, got the ball rolling with an offensive rebound putback, though that was soon answered by a Jordan Jones three. Hardee would get another trey from Djes Youte to put them up 7-3, but the Streaks would come charging back. Jordan Strickland hit a three, Terrell Williams worked inside for two and Keizhawn Hester drained one from beyond the arc to put Sebring up 11-7. The Wildcats would tie it on consecutive drives from Marco Deleon, but the Streaks would score the nal six points of the period to make it 17-11 after one. Sebrings own aggressiveness on defense, along with their size advantage, really played out in the second as varying presses wreaked havoc on the Hardee ball handlers. Quantrae Rouse scored on a fast break, as did Hester, before Youte got inside for a Wildcat score. But that would be the only score in the quar ter for the visitors as the Streaks continued to stretch the lead. Dylan Nielander gathered one off the offensive glass and put it back in, Hester hit a jumper and Williams a three. Breon Jones then scored on a drive, Hester split a pair at the line and Jones cashed in both of his freebies to make it a 33-13 lead at the half. Hardee would scrap its way throughout the second half, ghting tooth and nail to dig into the lead. But the Blue Streaks held them at bay, with Hester the star of the game with 15 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and four steals. Connor Cook added 13 points, Williams 11 and Nielander nine. The win moves Sebring to tonights district title game when they will host Lemon Bay at 7 p.m., with the winner then getting to host their rst-round playoff contest. HOOPS FROM PAGE A9 Dan Hoehne/News-SunBreon Jones lofts a oater in the lane during Sebrings Tuesday win over Hardee in the District 11-5A tournament seminal. smaller sh and removing them from the watershed the slot sized sh grow even faster and larger, while their numbers increase. But because of the popularity of catch and release, reality has trumped theory. In fact, in a worst case scenar io, they can result in a shery with an overpopulation of small to medium-sized sh. A lot of time, theres ample food for young bass to 8 or 10 inches, but where you begin to see stockpiling is at 10 to 14 bass because theres a lack of 3 to 4 bluegill for them to eat. When that happens, the bass population hits a wall and wont grow anymore. So what does the future hold for protective slots? Fisheries managers believe they are effective management tools, but they also know that how effective depends largely on angler behavior. The key is educating anglers about how harvesting bass below a protected slot actually im proves their chances of catching bigger sh. This is certainly an interesting subject and it readily brings to mind one of Sebrings premier bass shing lakes, Lake Jackson. From June through December last year, Paul Tardiff held a weekly bass tournament every Wednesday on Lake Jackson and I shed most of them. In the rst few months, catching 20-30 bass wasnt unusual. In fact, a few of the guys, including me had days where we caught as many as 40 bass in a short, four-hour time period. I tracked the tournaments and well over 1000 bass were caught, and almost all released, yet few were larger than 15 inches. In fact, the vast majority were less than 14 inches, requiring immediate release based on our current minimum size limit in Florida. Most of the tournaments were won with three sh weighing 6 to 7 pounds. That represents three sh that were on average, 14 to 15 in length. Only three sh in the entire time frame over 5 lbs were weighed in. Im sure, given that most sh were released alive; many were probably caught two, three or even four times during that same period. But why are there so many sh in this one size range? I suspect it goes to the central theme of Montgomerys article; we keep releasing these small sh instead of harvesting them to allow the remaining sh to grow larger. As shermen, harvesting these smaller bass will create more food and greater habitat creating a better shery in Lake Jackson and other lakes that we love to sh. So maybe its time to eat more bass! Sebring Bassmasters After two tournaments, Ronnie Westcott is leading the pack with 163.92 points, followed by Kyle King with 142.84 points and Nick Dubois with 117.92 points. Sunday we had seven teams sh Lake Placid and I won the tournament with three sh weighing 6.8 pounds. My largest bass, a 3+ pounder also took big bass honors. Geoff Balogs Friday Istokpoga Tournament Kyle King and I shed Geoffs tournament last Friday in the pouring rain and won the event with three bass weighing around 8 pounds. We also won the big bass pot with a nice 4 pounder. REDS Big Bass Tournament The next Big Bass Tournament will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22, at Lake June in Lake Placid. Only 15 boats will be allowed to participate, 12 are currently signed up. A maximum of two shermen per boat.

The American speedskaters were missing items like soap and trash cans in their rooms. Brian Hansen says a U.S. company specializing in personal care products helped get soap for the skaters. I still dont have an ex tra pillow, he says, so Im actually using a blan ket stuffed inside a T-shirt and using my pillow under my legs. Jilleanne Rookard is a little frustrated about the missing trash cans. Every time we get a lit tle bag, the maid takes it and then were stuck throwing trash on the oor in a pile again, she says. The housekeeping staff tends to arrive at inconve nient times, too. They dont speak the language, so sometimes theyll just bust into our room. They dont knock, she says.

LIVING BFriday, February 7, 2014 PRITCHARD/MCT photos by DANA GALLAGHER courtesy of FamilyFun magazine BY DEBORAH WAYFamilyFun magazineTIPPY TOWERIts hard to say what kids will love more about this game: building the giant block tower or watching it come crashing down.SET UP: Collect 15 to 20 empty boxes from your recy cling bin (our boxes held cereal, oats, crackers and other dry goods). Tape the tops shut and, if you like, wrap the boxes with paper. PLAY: The rst player selects a box and sets it in place. The next stacks a box on top of it. Play continues with each person adding to the tower. The player who topples the tower is out, and a new round begins. Play until only the winner remains. POM-POM CURLINGThis tabletop tournament is loosely based on curl ing, the granite-stone-sliding, broombrushing game played on ice.SET UP: Youll need two sets of three pom-poms and several drinking straws. Create a target approximatly 8 inches in diameter (see diagram, left) and tape it to the end of a rectangular table. Mark a boundary line a few inches away with painters tape, as shown. PLAY: Divide into two teams of three (if you have fewer than six players, you can rotate positions so that each person gets a turn as the bowler). The rst team picks two players to hold drinking straws and sit on either side of the table, and one bowler, who stands at the end opposite the tar get. The bowler rolls a pom-pom toward the target, and the strawholders blow through their straws to direct the pom-poms path. Once the pom-pom crosses the tape line, the straw-holders must stop blowing and let it roll to a stop. The second teams bowler then rolls her pom-pom, steered by her teams strawholders. (Youre allowed to knock the other teams pom-pom with yours.) Teams alternate turns until all six pom-poms have been bowled. The rst team to a predetermined number of points wins. THIN ICEThe die adds an element of chance to this suspenseful game of strategy and skill. SET UP: Use a rubber band to secure a facial tissue tautly over the top of a mug.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, February 7, 2014 www.newssun.com PUZZLE CORNER DEAR ABBY: I have been dating someone for about six months. We fell in love very quickly and spend al most every second together. Our relationship has hit a rough patch ever since he found out that I have dated African-American men. He cant seem to get over it, but he keeps saying he wants to try to make it work. He says cru el things sometimes when he gets mad, and it seems to be on his mind constantly. I dont know what to do or how to make this better. We fell in love, but it seems to be spoiled because of my past. This isnt a big deal to me. I have always dated people I thought were good people. He seems to view it as disgusting. I thought he was my soul mate because we connect ed so well on everything else, but Im afraid he will never get past this issue and I may be wasting my time. What should I do? Rocky Road in the South Dear Rocky Road: Give him a hug and let him go. You are the sum total of your experiences and your upbringing, and the same is true of your boyfriend. He comes from a back ground of racial prejudice. When a person is raised that way, the mindset can be very difcult to change. As much as you might want to, you cant x this man; only he can do that. And from your descrip tion of him, I dont think hes capable of that kind of growth. DEAR ABBY: Im writing to you in the hope that you will share something with your readers. When I travel, I stay in hotels and it never ceases to amaze me how inconsiderate my fellow travelers can be. Late at night, the drunken par ty animals carry on, often until the sun rises. Then families with small children invade the halls, and the kids race up and down the halls screaming. Behind every one of those closed hallway doors there may be a per son who is trying to sleep. Fellow travelers, please be considerate! Walk softly and talk quietly in the halls. And parents, please teach your children manners. This includes not playing noisily where people are trying to sleep. Sleepless Near Seattle Dear Sleepless: I have experienced the same difculties that you have while traveling. Heres how I deal with it: I pick up the phone and notify the front desk or security if there are rowdy drunks keeping me awake after 10 p.m. and the same goes for neighbors who have the volume on their television sets turned up so high I cant sleep. If the problem persists, I ask to be moved to a quieter room. As for the screaming children chasing each oth er in the hallways I have been known to poke my sleepy head out the door and ask them to please quiet down. Maybe I have just been lucky, but they usually do.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil lips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.Whirlwind romance deflates over mans attitudes about race DEAR ABBYJeanne Phillips JE SSIC A HERND ONAP Film WriterYoung and old fans alike know the joy of dumping a set of Legos on the oor and chucking that instruction manual. After all, throwing a portion of a helicopter on an incomplete racecar could produce the ultimate hybrid. In The Lego Movie, the toy brands rst theatrical feature, audiences are encouraged to wave off routine. When average construction worker Emmet (voiced by an endearing Chris Pratt) accidentally falls into a pit at his worksite, he is met by Wyldstyle (Elizabeth Banks), a sassy, Goth chick channeling Trinity in this Matrix for kids. Wyldstyle believes Emmet is a Special master builder who can save Bricksburg from the evil President Business (played with charming bite by Will Farrell), who wants to douse the town with a Krazy Glue-like substance called kragle. Unfortunately, Emmet is a reluctant hero, but not because hes shy. Hes just never really had an original thought. Hes been more than happy to adhere to every rule, become overly excited about taco Tuesday and adore any song on the radio. (The addictive Everything Is Awesome pops up throughout.) A lax-toned Morgan Freeman plays Vitruvius, the almighty wizard who helps Emmet believe hes more than just a mediocre block of plastic by encouraging him to trust his instincts. Written and directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs), The Lego Movie ranks high among other animated favorites about courageous toys, such as Pinocchio and Toy Story. Lord and Miller nail the fuzzy believe-in-yourself message and score with a spoof-heavy, yet engaging plot. Film editors David Burrows (Happy Feet) and Chris McK ay (Robot Chicken) create stopmotion animation thats perfectly paced so the story never lulls. The facial expressions of the mini-gures move as any other animated characters would, but the Lego bodies remain robotic and true to reallife form. However, it is fun to see how the animators conceive a wavy sea. (The lm was made using an astounding 3,863,484 unique bricks.) The effects stretch the imagination just enough, but not so much as to deter from an all-too-familiar Legoland setting. Lord and Miller ensure that the laughs persist, as they focus on Legos ability to be the butt of the joke. Batman (Will Arnett), who plays a major supporting role, is a bit of a bully and when Emmet at tempts to rally a band of familiar good guys with a speech highlighting his ordinariness, we see that Wonder Woman, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and even Milhouse from The Simpsons could care less. And by mingling the Lego world with relics like a Band-Aid, nail polish remover and a mostly eaten sucker (Vitruvius staff), the mockery ensues. The lmmakers could have easily made one long, monotonous ad for the beloved brand thats been around for more than 55 years. Instead theyve created a delightful tale championing self-reliance and distinctiveness. And though it detours from a strict brick world in the nal act, the cheery humor always clicks. The Lego Movie, a Warner Bros. release, is rated PG for mild action and rude humor. Running time: 100 minutes.L ego Movie: Tiny toys, huge laughs Courtesy of Warner Bros.

Cameron of First Presbyterian Church in Lake Placid will be starting a sermon series on the Book of Acts. This sermon series will begin Sunday and will continue through 2014. The Book of Acts ex plores how God calls ordinary people to do extraor dinary things through the power of the Holy Spirit. Many lives were touched and warmed beyond Jerusalem and Judea, out to the world and all the people. We too should be mission minded and venture forth and share in this heroic task to witness for Christ in all the world. First Presbyterian Church is at 117 N. Oak Ave. between Dal Hall Boulevard and Interlake. SNAPSHOTS RELIGION EVENTS Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID First Presbyterian Church of Lake Placid will host a special hymn festival at 4 p.m. Sunday to celebrate the life and hymns of Fanny Crosby, the Queen of Gospel Songs. After more than 100 years, Crosbys hymns are still being sung in churches across the United States and around the world. Her more popular songs include such favorites as Blessed Assurance, All the Way My Savior Leads Me, Near the Cross, To God Be the Glory, Pass Me Not, and Praise Him! Praise Him! The hymn festival will include all of these, as well as other familiar hymns and Crosbys famous solo, Open the Gates of the Temple. Frances Jane Crosby was born in upstate New York on March 24, 1820, and became blind as a re sult of improper medical treatment at the age of six weeks. Despite her disability, Crosby displayed remarkable gifts in music and poetry, dedicating these to the ser vice of Christ by composing thousands of gospel songs. It has been reported that Crosby set a per sonal goal of leading a million souls to Christ through her music and kept careful records of conversions in response to her hymns. In the course of her 90 years of life, she also wrote cantatas and collaborat ed with some of the most prominent musicians in 19th century America. Crosby died on Feb. 12, 1915 and the hymn festival marks the 99th anniversary of her passing. Sundays hymn festival will celebrate the legacy of her hymns and strong testimony in the face of suffering through congregational singing and special music. The program has been prepared by Dr. Russell Ramsey, a military ofcer, history professor, and published author who resides in the Lake Placid area. Ramsey will introduce each of the songs, and provide short insights into the events of Fannys life that molded her into one of the most inuential women in the history of the church.

K.B., San Antonio Answer: Knowing if you have the u versus the common cold is helpful. The u comes on fast and furious, presenting itself with a high fever (often above 101 degrees), chills, joint pain, body aches and sheer misery head to toe. The inuenza virus causes the u, whereas the common cold can be caused by any one of 200 viruses. Symptoms of the common cold are above the neck and much wet ter than the u, so theres more mucus, as in runny nose, congestion, watery eyes and sneezing. Do you realize that your nose and throat are the two main entry points for 90 percent of germs? You can either ush them out with a neti pot, or you can try a product that coats the pathways into the body. With a new product on the market shown in lab tests to keep the bugs from dividing, you can lit erally spray cold and u germs in your nose and throat. Its called FluNada, and its a new, over-thecounter natural remedy that contains a homeopathic blend of mint, wintergreen, eucalyptus and elderberry. Spray it in your mouth, and nasal passages, right where the bugs try to enter your body. FluNada (sold nationwide) was tested by two independent labs and found to be 99.9 percent effective against multiple cold and u strains, including swine, bird and seasonal. I believe in this product so much I became their pharmacy consultant! You think about the u during the wintertime, however, Id like you to think about it year round so that you can make bigger health investments every day of the year. For example, a health investment would include juicing each day, exercising, eliminating rened foods and sweets, and sleeping more. These put deposits into your immune system so that you can withdraw the benet of natural killer cells that ght pathogens for you! Stress contributes to colds and u by weakening your immune system. I know, I know. Youre ob ligated to certain events, parties, business meetings and travel, but maybe you can say no to some things, especially if youre weak and your health is at stake. The u causes approxi mately 200,000 hospitalizations annually in the United States, and about 36,000 deaths from complications such as pneumonia. Since Im in your brain right now, I hear you asking me about the u shot, and if it works. You can get the u shot if you choose to, that is between you and your practitioner. Most think its a rst line of defense. Why not add other layers of defense by considering probiotics, the fundamental immune supplement as far as Im concerned. Aged garlic, CoQ10, and Vitamin D and maitake mushroom are popular antioxidants known to support immunity. Finally, if you can ditch the soda and drink more green tea or tulsi tea, you will catapult your body into a much higher state of health.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

www.newssun.comFriday, February 7, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B7 BY KEVIN PATTERSONKevins KommentsLast week we talked about the fact that Gods grace saves us. Gods grace is offered to us freely, and it is this free gift (a gift that we do not deserve) that gives us eternal life. Let us also remember that there is nothing that we can do to earn this grace or work our way into Heaven. However, that does not mean that God does not set conditions that we must rst meet in order to receive His grace. If I announced to the community that I was giv ing away $1 million to each person who came to my home before Friday at noon (assuming I had that much money!), how many people do you think would come? Between now and Friday, I am quite sure I would get very little sleep and hand out a whole lot of money! But, let me ask this question: For those who came and collected the money, what did they do to earn it? Nothing! They did follow my instructions in or der to get the money, but they did nothing to deserve it. They received it simply because I decided to give it away. Notice, though, that I did not give money to everyone. Those who chose not to come to my house by Friday at noon received nothing. Only those who met the conditions set received the reward. Gods grace works in the same way. There is noth ing we have done to deserve it and nothing we can do to earn it. However, God still makes His grace available to every one, but not everyone will receive it. Only those who follow His instructions will receive the reward. In Ephesians 2:5, Paul tells the Christians at Ephesus that God even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ. He further makes the statement, by grace you have been saved. Why were these people saved by grace? It is be cause they were Christians. They had obeyed Gods plan of salvation. Thus, He had granted to them His gift of saving grace. They had not earned this gift through their own works, but they had obeyed the conditions set by the Father in order to receive it. Paul elaborates on this point in Ephesians 2:8 & 9 when he writes, For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. First of all, the inspired apostle made it clear that these Ephesian Christians had been saved by grace. But, this grace was given through faith. In other words, because they had met Gods condi tion of developing an active faith in Him, He freely gave this gift to them. Second, notice that Paul says this gift was given not of yourselves. That simply means that grace belongs to God and is His and His alone to give. Grace nev er comes from us or is ever due us because of our works. In fact, that is just what Paul then writes: it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. No one can brag about the good works they have done, because these good works do not save us. Only Gods grace can do that. However, these works do save us only in the sense that they are the condi tions set by God that we must rst meet if we want to receive the grace that He so freely offers. This is why Peter said to the multitude on the day of Pentecost in Acts 2:40, Save yourselves from this cor rupt generation. Peter knew that if they acted upon his command in Acts 2:38 to Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, then they would have obeyed the Father. By meeting the Fathers conditions, He would then bestow upon them His saving grace. Jesus Christ said it best in Matthew 7:21, Not ev eryone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter. Why would the person who does the Fa thers will be granted access to Heaven? It is because that person alone will receive the gift of Gods saving grace. Whoever disobeys the Fathers will shall be lost. We must have faith (Hebrews 11:6). We must put that faith into action (James 2:14-17, 24). We must make sure that our faith is one that can be seen by others (Galatians 5:6, James 2:18). By do ing these things, we obey God. By obeying God, He is pleased and happy to give us what we do not deserve, but what we so desperately need His saving grace!Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway.

KEVINS KOMMENTSKevin Patterson BY FRANK P ARK ERGuest ColumnistIn our nation of freedom of speech and press, much advertising is comparing one product to another of the same kind. Evidence is present ed to show the superiority of their product. In our course, Comparative Religion 101, our rst class will use this freedom to compare Christianity and Islam, i.e. Jesus and Mohammed. Our evidence will be the Bible and Quran. John 4 records a conversation Jesus had with a Samaritan woman. She took the opportunity to ask Jesus help on a long disputed matter, Our fathers worshipped in this mountain, and you people say that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship (John 4:20). Note that her concern was regarding the proper place: Mount Ger izim or Jerusalem. Jesus responded, Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. The Spirit does not specify a place as holy, but rather persons: Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and for eigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief corner stone, in whom the whole building, being tted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit (Ephesians 2:2022). This truth is further emphasized in 1 Corinthians 3:16,17, Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are. Likewise, there is no specic place or hour of prayer! Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17). I desire there fore that the men every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting (1 Timothy 2:8). In the Lords prayer, we learn in John 17:1 Jesus spoke these things and lifted up His eyes to heaven, And in His model prayer to the disciples, He instructed, Pray then, in this way: Our Father who is in heaven (Mat thew 6:9). Yet, some 600 years later, Muhammad declared in the Quran, Surah II, 144, We have seen the turning of thy face to heaven (for guidance, O Muhammad). And now verily We shall make thee turn (in prayer) toward a qiblah which is dear to thee. So turn thy face toward the Inviolable Place of Worship. [The Kabah at Mecca], and ye (O Muslims) wheresoev er ye may be, turn your faces (when ye pray) toward it. Lo! those who have received the Scriptures know that (this Revelation) is the Truth from their Lord. And Allah is not unaware of what they do. One of the Five Pillars of Islam is to pray ve times a day facing Mecca or Makkah. The conversation Jesus had with the Samaritan was an introduction to a better Way so clearly set forth in scripture. The Holy Spirit stated in First Timothy 2:5, For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, and in Hebrews 4:14, Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. Revelation 5 gives us graphic picture of the Lamb of God, i.e. High Priest, in heaven. The new and living way (Hebrews 10:19-22) does not bring us back un der the shadow of the law (Daniel 6:10) or shades of paganism (1 Kings 18:26-29), but rather condence to enter the holy place/heaven by the blood of Jesus.
