Commissioners have the option of assessing anywhere from 1 to 5 cents per gallon on the local option, and have long opted for charging the full nickel with another penny per gallon coming from the so-called ninth cent. Money from those taxes go to main tain local streets and roadways. County ofcials have projected the nancial impact for the ninth cent fuel tax will be better than $500,000. The income from the 5-cent local option fuel tax is projected at around $1.5 million. The action actually will extend both the ninth cent and the local option fuel tax through the year 2019. Under Florida State statutes, county governments are authorized to levy up to 12 cents of local option fuel taxes in three separate levies on fuel sold with in the county. The funds are used for transportation expenditures. Highlands imposes the full 5 cents per gallon. The local option fuel tax is levied on gasoline only and not on die sel. Those proceeds also are used for transportation expenditures.County renews fuel taxesSEE FUEL | A8 B Y R OD L EWISNews-Sun CorrespondentLAKE PLACID Heated debate was the norm Monday night when the Town Council discussed re inspec tions, annexing areas into the town for the creation of a Community Redevel opment Agency (CRA) and a resolution for funding to improve the health of Lake McCoy.

The 20-foot long, 8-foot tall replica of the human colon will be here as part of Colorec tal Cancer Awareness month. It will be on display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fri day, March 1, at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Civic Center. Nurse Do reen Moran made the ar rangements to bring the display in connection with the Florida Depart ment of Health and Prevent Cancer. It is the second leading cause of death from can cer and it is preventable, Moran said. Usually a $12,000 charge, Moran explained the display will be in Highlands County at no cost. Among other things, plans are to have guid ed tours and show people how polyps and tumors develop and how they are removed. There will be physi cians and different people there in an effort to help increase awareness, she said. In fact, were going to have an Ask a Doc table where people can get their answers on the spot. Additionally, Moran plans to have YouTube videos playing, demon strating colon procedures and how they are per formed. The local nurse got the idea while working on Christmas decorations. I was decorating my door at work. I was look ing for ideas and stumbled across a YouTube video on the Super Co lon, she said. Part of the reason Mo ran was able to enlist the help of Prevent Cancer, was because of the de mographics of Highlands County. The median age is 51, and that is the time colorectal cancer screen ings should take place, she said. Unless there is a family history, then they should begin sooner. Moran, who described herself as being on a mission, said if the dis play helped one individual it would be worth it.Super Colon coming to visit BY BARRY F O S TERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING When he took over as head ranger at Highlands Hammock State Park, Brian Pin son said one of his goals would be to increase outreach and special events at the states old est Civilian Conservation Corps-built facility. It begins for him from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sat urday with Know Your Neighborhood, which will bring together dif ferent agencies and displays designed to educate the public in a fun way at the Hammock. The community has been here for Highlands Hammock for so long and we just want to give back he said. This is just another reason to come out to the park. There will be a wide ar ray of Florida Park Ser vice rangers with infor mation about Highlands Hammock as well as in formation about other functions they perform. Some of the staff are park rangers, some of them are wildland re ghters, so we will be talking to the visitors about those things, he said. Representatives of the Florida Forestry Ser vice also will be in attendance and will discuss how to rewise homes in wooded areas as wild re season approaches. The Florida Depart ment of Environmental Protection will be on hand as well with dis plays and information. The DEP will be there with their regulatory di vision out of Fort Mey ers. They will tell citizens what they can and can not do under state law, he said. A special presenta tion will be made by the Florida Fish and Wild life Conservation Commission. The agency has been talking about bears. A Sebring woman was re cently arrested for feeding bears after a judge ordered her to stop. They will have their brand new culvert trap, which they have utilized to trap and relocate nui sance bears, Pinson said. In addition to the dis plays, Pinson said there will be a wide array of equipment that residents may touch and climb on to see it up close and personal. Were going to have an airboat, a tractor/ plow unit from the For estry service and a wide array of trucks and oth er equipment used by the various agencies, he said. Were even go ing to have a decommissioned helicopter so kids can actually get up in it, ip the switches and get their pictures taken in it. Also on display will be a completely refurbished brush re truck that dates back to the 1940s. In addition to the out door displays, the Civilian Conservation Corps Museum at the park will be open, and members of the award-winning Highlands Hammock Citizens Support Orga nization will be cooking hot dogs and selling Tshirts as a fundraiser. The trams will be run ning as they always do. We plan to show folks the results of a couple of prescribed burns we have just completed, he said. The displays will be set up Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. There is no additional charge for the event, only regular park admission fees will be assessed. Saturday evening will be another edition of Music in the Park. Staged by the Friends of High lands Hammock State Park, the program will feature the popular Cal ifornia Toe Jam Band. There will be a separate fee of $5 per person for that event, with children 12 and under admitted free. The concert will run from 7-9 p.m.Know Y our Neighborhood event set at HammockSaturday also features Music in the Park M C Y K

A4 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, February 21, 2014 www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS The drive is on to bring whiz-bang gadgetry to schools as the next big thing in education. There are smart ways to harness electronic learning, and there are dumb ways. Dumb: The Los Angeles public schools headlong, $1 billion, belly-op leap last year into putting an iPad in the hands of every student, much as proposed by for mer City Council Speaker and mayoral candidate Christine Quinn. Educators in L.A. were seduced by the shiny devices. But software wasnt ready. Wireless connectivity, which is a must, was spotty at best. After a backlash, the L.A. board was forced to slow the rollout to get it right. With (New York) Gov. (Andrew) Cuomo pledging to offer $2 billion in technol ogy upgrades for schools if they deliver thought-through plans, and with Pres ident Obama looking at a similar $3 bil lion national program, the lesson is that the gizmos are secondary to the educa tional material they can provide. Theres great stuff out there if teachers know where to look. To cite one example, American history nerd Ken Burns is out with an iPad app that organizes bite-size sections of his 40 years worth of docu mentaries for easy absorption. Users can delve into major events along a time line that stretches from the coun trys founding to the modern stories of baseball and jazz. Or they can explore the sweep of the American story by theme: race, innovation, politics, hard times, etc. Similarly, the Khan Academy is reshap ing how kids and adults can learn with an exhaustive library of amazing animated content. The point is that, as Cuomo follows through on his $2 billion promise, school districts will have no excuse for falling short of excellence if they apply for mon ey.An editorial from the Daily News of New York.Gadgets no substitute for educationANOTHER VIEWThe big debate is on as it becomes clear that de spite GOPers and Fox News continued clam or about Benghazi, Hillary Clinton is riding high in polls that match her up against Democrats and Republicans. According to a McClatchy-Marist poll, the former Secretary of State would today hand ily beat all of her potential Republican challengers, with Rep. Paul Ryan giving her the toughest run (52 percent to 44 per cent). Among Democrats, a new Washington PostABC News poll gives her a six to one lead over poten tial party competitors. So this means you can throw away your new crys tal ball? Not quite. If doing well in early polls and looking like a front-runner was a certainty then we would have had President Edmund Muskie, Presi dent John Connally, President Rudi Guiliani and President Hillary Clinton. Amid growing Democrat ic consensus about Hillary and a circular ring squad in the GOP, Republicans are going after her. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has been hammer ing former President Bill Clintons predatory be havior with Monica Lewinsky, and saying while it isnt Hillarys fault, its sometimes hard to sepa rate one from the other an argument bound to in sult many women voters. Some conservative talkers now gleefully echo Paul. Republican National Com mittee chairman Rance Priebus says everything is on the table to use against Hillary Clinton, in cluding a truckload of negative material. But the strategy of mak ing Bill Clinton the issue is bound to fail for many reasons. Just a few: un der-30 voters who could care less about the 90s, Bill Clintons 1990s sexu al escapades have lost all shock value, and the fact that there was that teeny weenie thing called im peachment which happened which ended in Clinton nishing his term with sky-high poll num bers and Hillary Clinton later getting handily elect ed as New Yorks Senator. A strategy counting on 21st century voters hav ing Clinton fatigue may be cheered by Rush Lim baugh and Sean Hannity, but its a creaky strategy that dates back to the end of Bill Clintons rst Presidential term. The late Christopher Hitch ens, who was often highly critical of Hillary Clinton, raised the issue when Hillary ran for President in 2008: What would it take to break this cheap little spell and make us wake up and inquire what on earth we are doing when we make the Clinton fam ily drama yet again a central part of our own politics? And then theres that other question. The GOP is abuzz about efforts to try and get former Florida Jeb Bush into the Republi can Party 2016 Presidential Nomination Sweepstakes now that Bridgegate has turned former-perceivedfrontrunner New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie into what comedian Bill Maher calls pounds of toast. Blogger Martin Longman bluntly asked the ques tion this way: Is Jeb Bush inevitable? Would anoth er Clinton/Bush contest prove that were not a rep resentative democracy but a nepotistic oligarchy? Those who argue Hill ary Clinton is not inevitable take arguments on why she seemingly is and ip them around. But Democratic strategist Bob Shrum, writing in The Dai ly Beast, argues the bottom-line reality can be seen in Republican re action: From contorted Benghazi conspiracy theo ries to Rand Pauls babble about Monica Lewinsky, they are attacking Hillary ercely because they fear her most. And they should be very, very afraid. One reason: Hillary Clin ton had a re in her belly to have a signicant im pact on the world long before she met her husband. She got in political trouble during his 1992 Presiden tial campaign by candidly saying about her work as an attorney: You know, I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulll my profession, which I entered before my husband was in pub lic life. She may not be inevi table, but those who try to microwave old attacks against her and her hus band and think they can send her home to bake cookies and have teas may nd she cooks their political goose. And pun dits who underestimate her strengths could nd themselves eating crow on election day.Joe Gandelman is a veteran journalist who wrote for newspapers overseas and in the United States. Follow him on Twitter: www.twitter.com/joegandelman. Guest columns are the opin ion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff.Are we inevitably on the path to Hillaryland? GUEST COLUMNJoe Gandelman Response to Kevins Komments on GraceI experienced a bit of angst in reading the Kevins Kom ments column on Feb. 14. Id go to the wall for Pastor Kevins right to say what he did, but I hope not too many accept his conclusion that one who has been truly born again can undo what God has done in making him His child. This isnt the place to refute his interpretation of all the Scriptures he used to prove his point. It should be noted, though, that each one, in its context, suggests something altogether different. Im not embarrassed to be among those who believe in the eternal security of those who have truly received Christ as Savior. All of us know peo ple who have professed a relationship with Christ, and seem to have gone back or fallen from grace. The parable Kev in cites from Luke 8, however, doesnt teach that those who have the real thing can fall away, but that those that fall away never had the real thing to begin with. Not one of the three soils cited ever bore fruit the one true mark of a believer. Do I believe once saved, al ways saved? Oh, yes. Else what does Jesus mean when He says in John 10:28-29, And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; nei ther shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Fathers hand? Or what is the signicance of John 5:24, where Jesus declares, Most as suredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has ever lasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life? Kevin correctly quoted Peter as saying, Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure. But, far from a warning about losing ones salvation, its a call to assurance, for the believ er to afrm that his call and election are the real deal, and to say with the Apostle Paul, I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have com mitted to Him until that Day.DR.

Tuesdays regular council meet ing brought more sign amendment requests to the council and mem bers were reluctant to budge. Majestic Cove sales execu tive John Riley approached council Tuesday asking for a little leeway when it came to the upcoming open house and sales special. Riley was requesting temporary signage that would help promote the sale of the condo units. Majes tic Cove is zoned residential, which restricts real estate signage to four square feet. Riley also requested permission from council to incor porate three swoosh signs tall ags also known as feather ban ners on the north and south end of the property to market the up coming open house and condo sales at the property. The requests opened up deep discussion by council members, many who have long had a bad taste in their mouth when dealing with signage throughout the city. I can see the advantage, for your type of business, of having swoosh signs, but an over-abundance of them can be an annoyance to the adjacent property owners. I dont have a problem with these on a temporary basis, council presi dent Andrew Fells said. But violations at other properties ended up standing in the way of Majestic Coves request. I really appreciate you at least coming and asking permission be fore just adding signage to your property, but I really have a prob lem. I question why we have an or dinance when its not even being enforced, Fells said. I am frus trated when I see pictures of all these violations for such a long time. Id like these signs removed and I think we need to enforce what we have on the books now. Fellow councilman John Clark echoed Fells frustration with vio lations at other apartment complexes. I dont know, I have a real hard time making an exception for you and then telling someone else they cant put up a swoosh sign. For the time being though, I support the residents, the people who have picked up the phone and com plained. Its obvious we dont enforce our rules so well sometimes, but I would like to see these signs removed, Clark said. The discussion continued with Mayor George Hensley weighing in with his opinion. Its time to get our act togeth er and eliminate this other stuff ... Should we give these other proper ties a time limit and allow this? Im more inclined to say let everybody keep them up while we clean it (or dinance) up. Lets let P and Z (Plan ning and Zoning) nish up this or dinance, Hensley said. Im not for giving them another second. Theyre lucky theyve got ten this far, Fells said. City Attorney Bob Swaine spoke on behalf of the properties and said it was inappropriate to beat up on them (Majestic Cove) while the other people are already do ing it. Planning and Zoning director Jim Polatty said his department is knee deep in the re-vamping of the overall sign ordinance, which was ordered by the council late last summer. Majestic Cove ultimately was de nied the opportunity to place any new signs on the property after two of councilman Bud Whitlocks motions died due to a second. No action was taken on the re quest to propose an amendment to the ordinance. Fells, Clark and Hensley were very vocal about the future en forcement of the citys current sign ordinance. How are we permitting the signs that are there now? Fells asked. I think in light of this, we need to step up our sign enforcement, Hensley said. I agree with George, Clark said. I want our current ordinance en forced.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.Majestic Cove request sparks sign ordinance discussion Katara Simmons/News-SunMajestic Coves request for temporary signage was denied by Sebring City Council on Tuesday.

Soon after, dozens of riders paraded on horses and wagons into the lot to visit with the students and demonstrate horse riding and whip cracking skills. The Cracker Trail Ride stopped off at the school again on its annual ride, which has been going on for 27 years to pay trib ute to south central Flor idas cattle ranching and cattle-driving history. The ride winds its way from East Manatee County to Fort Pierce for a parade on Sunday. The group camped Tuesday at Kahn Ranch in east Hardee County before taking State Road 66 to Highlands. After the school visit one of two on the route the group crossed U.S. 27 at noon, at the junc tion with U.S. 98 and State Road 66. Its the halfway point of the trek. Sadness visited the ride this year as Crack er Trail Association president Charlie Mercer led a riderless horse through the intersection to hon or longtime ride patron and supporter Clarence Polston, who passed away in January. Were doing this as a tribute to his family and Clarences passion for the Cracker Trail, Mercer said. The school visit was lively, however. Riding to school on horseback may not be typical, but it was enjoyed by students and the young riders, alike. Paul and Suzanne Park of Sarasota County, who have ridden the trail for 10 years, were there with their son, Todd, and daughter, Isabella. Su zanne said riders stop at Cracker Trail Elementary because of its name and proximity to the route. They also stop at a school in Zolfo Springs, she said. Todd showed off his skills cracking a whip sparring a bit with his mothers skills while Is abella had her paint horse, Even Steven, perform tricks. Paul led a horse around the lot to visit with students. Kim Ming of Bradenton also led her mustang, Des ert Rose Rosie for short to visit with students and teachers. She said the rusty brown 8-year-old had been brought in from the wild and trained by Wolfes Born to Ride. Before the riders ar rived, youngsters were instructed to approach the horses calmly, one at a time, and to follow directions of the riders. Assistant Principal Jean nie Inagawa said the school is proud to pay homage to Floridas cat tle heritage, and is even playing a free-admission Hoedown from 5-7 p.m. March 27.

BY BARR Y FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Did the Founding Fathers advocate the separation of church and state? Did they reject expressions of Christiani ty in government? Did they intend for federal institu tions to be religiously neutral? Did they even approve of same-sex marriages? These and more ques tions are slated to be addressed in a three-day seminar to be held today, Saturday and Sunday at Sebring Parkway church of Christ. Titled The Silencing of God, the program will be presented by Dr. David Miller. Dr. Miller and I have been friends for years, said Kevin Patterson, who preaches at Sebring Park way church of Christ. We just felt in light of world events it was time for us to host such a program. Miller is a graduate of Lubbock Christian Uni versity, where he earned a bachelors degree in speech and Bible. He earned a masters degree in speech communication from Texas Tech Universi ty and two more masters from the Harding School of Theology. Dave has been doing re search on this for years. He will be showing photos of founding documents and other information that re ally will startle some people, Patterson said. Miller will make the ar gument that the forces of political correctness have systematically been ex punging Christianity from American life. Attendees will be shown what Mill er says is evidence of how the American Republic was purposely founded on the moral principles of the Christian religion. In the evening sessions, we will have a break be tween the 7 and 8 (p.m.) presentations so peo ple can get up and stretch their legs, Patterson said. Sunday morning, it will be part of our 9 (a.m.) Bible study and 10 (a.m.) wor ship service. We also will have a covered dish dinner following. The nal session will be Sunday afternoon at 1.

There can be no purchase requirement and the person receiving the alcohol must be the legal age of 21 or older. The council approved the motion to contin ue Wine Walks and similar events with a 3-1 vote. There were a few stipula tions set in place for mer chants and participants of the events. Mayor George Hens ley, who is no stranger to the world of insurance, ex plained that the city needed to be covered in the event an accident takes place as a result of atten dance at one of the Wine Walks or a similar func tion. The city has protec tion. We want to put it into place where the city is re moved from any naming of a lawsuit. You have to set up certain barriers, similar to a construction contract, Hensley said. Council members con tinued discussing the necessary stipulations needed in order to keep the alcohol-centered events in downtown Sebring, how ever, there was one council member who was not in favor of the changes or the Wine Walks at all. It is the role of this council to protect the tax payers, said councilmen John Clark. If they (mer chants) cant get insurance as the city specied then we wont waive the open container ordinance. Clark was eventually outnumbered as he cast the only dissenting vote. Bud Whitlock made the motion to allow the Wine Walks, and similar events, so long as the city is in cluded as an additional insured in the merchants insurance plan, the citys special event application would be amended to in clude hold harmless language, and the Certicate of Insurance species ei ther liquor liability is included in the remarks section of the certicate or the host liquor liability is specied in the certicate.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or at 385-6155 ext: 526.

Neither defendant was present in court for their pre-trial hearing Wednesday but Makris defense attorney, Bill Fletcher, did speak on his behalf. This is a similar situ ation (to the last docket). Its an accessory after the fact in a murder case. Depositions are being taken ... Im requesting a one-cycle continuance, Fletcher said. Fletcher mentioned briey that a plea ar rangement has been discussed with Houchin. There is a plea antic ipation; we just havent talked negotiations, Fletcher said. Fletcher said that Makris has continued to cooperate with the state. A agreement for Makris was expected last spring, however the deal was never brought to the ta ble. Makris is accused as an accessory because pros ecutors say he held a bag of clothing, tennis shoes and other items for one of the accused killers. Burgos has been less cooperative with the state and no plea deal or arrangement is expect ed. Burgos is accused of hiding Rodriguez and Felipe at his Orlando apartment following the brutal killing of Doty.

DOTY FROM PAGE A1along with Cynthia Letcher, said 255 middle, junior high and high school stu dents from DeSoto, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Glades and Okeechobee counties converged on the college this week. Its about the only place big enough to hold us, Thomas said. Of those, 24 will go to state competition April 8-10 at the Lakeland Cen ter in Lakeland, he said, while four from this re gion two competitors and two observers will be sent directly to the In ternational Science and Engineering Fair, held this year in Los Angeles, he said. The winners will be announced tonight. Some students at this weeks fair had competed at the international lev el, including Rayna Parks (Pittsburgh, 2012) and Meagen Shivers (Phoe nix, 2013). Both are 11thgraders at Hardee Senior High School. They, along with oth er students who did well, found real-world appli cations to their research and tried to answer the questions of why and how, said teachers and judges. For example, Cady Mc Gehee of Okeechobee High School wanted to know how dairy farmers might test calves early for Mycoplasma bovis, a bac terium that poisons milk, causes respiratory infec tions and costs the dairy industry $102 million each year. Current treatments cant be given to lactating cows, but theres no effec tive way to test cows before they give birth at 22 months and give milk, McGahee said. By then, its too late. Drawing from her fa thers veterinarian background and her mothers nursing experience, Mc Gahee drew both tears and sinus uid from in fected cows and found the disease. Next year, she hopes to test calves the same way. Shivers wanted to nd a way to remove crude oil from water and send it for rening. She designed a centrifuge and tested ab sorbent substances to see how well the two would work together. She said the idea for her three-year project came from watching news cov erage of the British Petroleum Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010. BP absolutely had no plan of attack, Shivers said. Testing both chemical and organic substances, she found a sunower ex tract absorbed the most oil for the amount of sub stance used, and spun out the most oil in one minute at 6,500 rpm. She hopes to increase ef ciency by varying the spin time, spin rate or sub stance mixture. Parks 2012 project in volved protecting har vesting and processing equipment from citric acid. She found a polymer coating worked better than paint. This year, she studied the effects of diz ziness on cognitive ability. It had some effect but not enough to make a differ ence, she said. Each county is allowed to send up to 50 students from secondary schools, said Larry McCandless, science teacher at Hardee Junior High School. This year, 25 students went from his school while 24 students under his col league Rob Beatty came from Hardee Senior High School. Beatty said students ex cel best by rst learning scientic fundamentals in middle school so they understand the phys ics, chemistry and biology, then branching out in high school to ask why and how things happen, and if things could be dif ferent. Leana Revell, vice pres ident of Educational and Student Services at SFSC, said students work was remarkable, especial ly when they presented their own work. For some, it was the rst time they had ever done that. One student who im pressed her was Jansen Walker of Hardee Junior High School, whose study on citrus showed that un usually cold nights increase sugar content. She hadnt expected it, Revell said. Revell also said Walk er presented her ndings well. That girl had it togeth er, Revell said. SCIENCE FROM PAGE A1 FUEL FROM PAGE A1 Placid last year, he said. I am satised with what the businesses are doing and I think they are doing a good job, said council member Debra Worley. The busi nesses have been inspected by their families or themselves, which is the state statute. The debate continued until Ray Royce reframed the issue. There are two things we can do, Royce said. Either we contact the county and have them do inspections like the interlocal agreement says or we do nothing. Royce added that a let ter should be drafted by the Mayor John Hol brook reminding the county that they are re sponsible for inspections and that the mayor be notied when and where the inspections took place and of any viola tions that were found. The motion carried and Town Administra tor Phil Williams suggested that the business tax would be on the next agenda and there should be a discussion on trig gers and other related issues. The discussion about the proposed CRA heat ed up rather quickly, also. I dont want anyone to be annexed into the town under the thought of being in the CRA and have the wheels fall off, Holbrook said. If they want to be considered for the CRA, they need to be annexed into the town, said Councilman Steve Bas tardi. We are looking for the potential for a CRA, and if they want to be part of it, there is no oth er way. Worley requested that Williams come with her to discuss annexation in the areas that are recom mended for the CRA. The debate spilled over into the audience and Holbrook had to ask the spectators to be quiet so that council members could hear each other. The debate nally end ed when Holbrook said that the council had already given approval for Williams to accompa ny Worley on annexation trips. I would like to make a motion to hold up the RFQ (Request For Quo tation) temporarily to nd out about the an nexation pursuit, said Royce. Two or three weeks is recommended. Worley, who is spear heading the CRA project, said two weeks or three weeks will be OK. We can discuss it at the next council meeting. The Lake McCoy dis cussion started when Worley brought up a re quest for help from the town in funding support a project to save the lake. Worley said the Soil and Water district was willing to give a match of $25,000, but there was an unexpected shortfall of $17,500. Worley stated that she is looking at many differ ent avenues to raise the funds the funds needed. There is a watershed committee meeting (to day) at 6 p.m. and the public is invited to at tend. The discussion got more intense when de tails such as how the money will be spent, the amount of the lake that is in the town limit and the fact that the lake has no public access. The council was dead locked with Royce and Bastardi voting no and Worley and Waldron vot ing yes. Holbrook broke the tie with a yes vote so that $2,500 will be set aside for the project. In other business: The county intends to close West Interlake Blvd. from Main Street to North Tangerine Drive due to paving beginning Saturday at 5 a.m. until Monday at 5:00 a.m. Detours will be posted. The council decided to continue with sup plying water to Lake Country Elementary School. The council approved the Police Department to surplus items that are no longer needed. COUNCIL FROM PAGE A1 BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterLAKE PLACID Responding to rumors that a local re station might be closing its doors, Emer gency Operations Director Time Eures said that is not the case. There are no plans underfoot to close re departments, Eures said Thursday to questions re garding Sun N Lake Volunteer Fire Department in Lake Placid. The only county-run station that has closed in recent histo ry was Sun N Lake Volunteer Fire Department in August 2013. It covered the Sun N Lake Im provement District in Sebring. Those services are now being handled by West Sebring Volun teer Fire Department. Of the 12 departments in the county, only two Avon Park Fire Department and Sebring Fire and Rescue are paid depart ments funded by municipalities. All other departments are run by the Highlands County govern ment and are volunteer departments with budgets from proper ty assessments, Eures said. Charles Andrews, Fire Servic es supervisor, said some departments havent raised those assessments in 20 years while the cost of fuel and replacing equip ment and trucks have all gone up. Assessments also pay to train vol unteer reghters for all emer gency situations. Currently, the Sun N Lake sta tion in Lake Placid has two paid reghters to augment the de partments ability to call in volunteers on weekdays. It is not the only volunteer department that pays for personnel, Eures said. In strictly volunteer stations, assessments pay only for over head costs, equipment and training. Eures said he and his re chiefs would review budgets this year and make sure that re sta tions can maintain their levels of re service. If they can offset that (with as sessments), great. We try to nd a situation where everyone wins, Eures said. Chief Stan Schuham, when asked about the rumors, de clined to comment and deferred questions up the chain of com mand. Andrews also declined to comment on any specic ques tions about stations staying open or closing and referred detailed questions to Eures. I have never and would never tell members not to speak, Eures said about the reluctance of his chief and supervisor to discuss cost matters. Eures said he would only ask members not to speak if ques tions involve protected medical information or a subject of policy, which needs to be answered by a supervisor or director like him.Eures: No fire stations slated for closing M C Y K

www.newssun.comFriday, February 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A9 SPORTS BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Nerves and anxiousness were on display early in the Blue Streaks 64-40, regional seminal loss to Mariner Tuesday night. The Sebring program hadnt reached this stage of the state playoffs in more than a decade and it was a rst step onto this stage for these particular Streaks. Hurried passes, missed lay-ups and four, rst-half charge calls certainly were evidence of the excess adrenaline, and helped the visiting Tritons expand on their lead. Down 7-0 after inside scores from Rodney Hunter and a three from Kaleb Darrett, Sebring got back into it on a Quantrae Rouse trey and a lay-in on a break from Gary Demar est. But those charges and turnovers gave Mariner extra opportunities to cash in on and that they did. Darrett hit another from downtown and Hunter put in a baseline drive before Connor Cook dropped in a oater. Rodney Powery later crashed the offensive boards for a follow and foul for a three-point play, but Darrett and Hunter each scored again to put the decit at a still manageable 18-11. The Tritons, however, began to pull away when they began the second with an 8-0 run. Darrett got loose on a fast break and threw down a thunderous dunk and would get another fastbreak lay-up moments later. Hunter scored inside and Darrett snagged a steal and slammed home another and the margin stood at 26-11. Jordan Strickland hit a baseline oater and Rouse put back his own miss. But the Streaks would add just one more free throw while Mariner got a trey from Kris Carpenter and a three-point play from Caleb Taylor to make it a 33-16 game at the half. Any hope of clawing their way back into it began to fade away for the Blue Streaks as the Tritons kept their offense rolling to the tune of 20 third-period points. Carpenter hit a pair from downtown, Isaiah Darrett scored three times and Hunter twice, while Sebring totaled 12 in the frame to make it a 53-28 contest and be all but out of reach. We could have stayed with them, but the turnovers really hurt us, 13 turnovers, Blue Streak head coach Princeton Harris said. We gave them the game with the turnovers. But Harris post-game frustration soon subsided as he reected back on the season his squad turned in. We won just ve games last year, he said. It says a lot for the hard work of these kids to have the kind of year they did. I couldnt be prouder. And as far as looking ahead, Harris certainly likes what he sees. We have some very good depth with our JV team and the future looks bright for us.Bucs blast Red DevilsAVON PARK Up on the northern edge of the county, the Devils game was less in doubt as the Buccaneers of Berkeley Prep took over early and never relented in a 76-46 win in the Class 4A regional seminal.

SEE HOOPS | A11 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK The tide may be starting to turn for the South Florida State College baseball team. After a slow start to the season, as far as the win column is concerned, the Panthers won their second in a row Wednesday night, climbing back out of two decits to top Indian River 12-9. Weve been playing good baseball most of the season but we werent getting the wins, head coach Rick Hitt said. Weve been in close games where we just needed to make a play and didnt. On Wednesday night they did, and needed to as the visiting Pioneers broke out of the gate with a four-run rst. Shaquille Rolle and Randy Batista greeted Panther starter Tyler Knowles with a single and double, respectively to put runners at second and third. Knowles got a ground-out to third, but Ryan Ripken soon slashed one up the middle to bring both runners in. A later error and back-toback, swinging-bunt base hits plated two more for a 4-0 Indian River lead. South Florida scratched for one in the bottom of the second when an ineld single from Dalton Scarborough brought Justin Tedder in, and RBI singles from Isaiah Dean and Tedder, along with a runscoring grounder off Jorge Flores bat, tied it at 4-4 after three.SFSC Panthers put it to Pioneers Dan Hoehne/News-SunRichard Trotter res to rst off a bunt attempt in SFSCs 12-9 win over Indian River Wednesday. SEE SFSC | A11This has been a strange winter so far; near record high temperatures, multiple cold fronts and over night temperatures dipping into the 20s and 30s. Not that Im complaining mind you. One look at the weather theyre getting up north and Im real happy with the weather here. But it has been an unusual weather pattern for the past two months. Two weeks ago Lake Istokpoga water temper atures were in the midseventies, with spawning sh up in the shallows and good numbers being caught all over the lake. Then a cold snap, compounded by some cold nights and early this week the lake water temper atures were back in the mid-sixties. This sudden increase and then decrease has a big impact on the spawning bass, allowing them to move shallow and then running them off the beds again. This has been happening off and on for the last six weeks. Monday I had a guide trip with Craig Herrick and his friend Andy and shing was tough. Youd never know it from the number of trucks and boat trailers in the parking lot at Windy Point, but in about eight hours of shing, we only had seven hits. The water temperature was around 65 degrees when we started and with plenty of sunshine and no wind, the water temp increased to 71 by 5:30 p.m. We caught a few sh but lost the best one of the day in the reeds close to quitting time. Tuesday I went out with Bill Jiedy, a hardcore sherman from Illinois who shed with me back in December with his sonin-law. The water had cooled overnight and was 68 degrees when we headed out in the morning around 9 a.m. The weather was even nicer than Monday with bright blue skies, light wind and plenty of sun. We spent the rst two or three hours ippin Istokpoga slow to warm up with fluctuating weather FISHIN AROUND...Don NortonSEE FISH | A11BOYS BASKETBALL STATE PLAYOFFS Dan Hoehne/News-SunThough the defensive effort was there from Alfred Brown and the Red Devils, there was just no stopping the Berkeley Prep offense Tuesday night.

Wells looked into allegations that Martin had been bullied by teammate Richie Incognito and others. At the NFL combine in Indianapolis, Philbin immediately said he would look under every stone to change the culture inside Miamis locker room.

Avon Park, meanwhile, did get three buckets from Alfred Brown, but managed just one other score and a free throw to leave them looking up at a 23-9 decit. The Devils got the offense going better in the second, with ve points from Tyrone Perry and four each from Gus Owens and Recarus Burley, helping post 15 points onto the board. But Berkeley werent letting up and added another 25 to their total to make it a 48-24 lead at the half. Brown would pick it up in the second half, scoring 10 of his teamhigh 16 points, but the Buccaneers were not about to let the Devils back into this one. A 21-point third pushed the lead to 69-37 and essentially sealed the deal. What you saw tonight was that they have basketball players, who can score from inside and outside the arc, head coach Marty OHora said. We have good athletes who play basketball. Were only losing one senior next year, so we will see who wants to become basketball players, he continued. But were making progress. We went 20-8 and went a round further than we did last year, so overall Id say were on the right track. HOOPS FROM PAGE A9 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Justin Tedder slides home ahead of the throw in the rst inning Wednesday night. Tedder went 4-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored in the Panthers 12-9 win.The Pioneers retook the lead with a run in the top of the fourth and added four more in the fth to go up 9-4. Again the Panthers began to claw their way back with Tedder working a bases-loaded walk and Austin Bingham lofting a sacrice y to make it 9-6 after ve. Then in the sixth, Chris Kazen took one for the team to lead things off and moved to second on a Damian Boyum single through the left side. The runners were moved into scoring position on an Austin Johnson bunt and then on a tapper back to the mound by Rodney Forbes, the pitcher threw toward the shortstop to try to nab Boyum. But the throw wasnt handled, Kazen came in and runners were on the corners. Tyler Bender beat out an ineld single to score Boyum and one out later, Tedder drove Forbes in with a base-knock to tie it 9-9. The seventh went by with neither team scor ing and Brad Burdett came on in relief early in the eighth and got out of a bases-loaded jam by getting a strike out and a elders choice grounder to second. Then in the bottom of the frame, the Panthers put it away. Johnson lead off the inning with a blast over the left-eld fence for a tiebreaking home run. Forbes then reached and stole second before moving to third on Deans bunt single. Flores tagged another sacrice y, bringing Forbes in, and Tedder laced another run-scor ing single to put South Florida up 12-9. Burdett then made it hold up by working around a one-out single in the ninth and striking out the nal two batters. The guys, as theyve been doing, just kept battling back, Hitt said afterward. Down big twice and they continued to work. Were continuing to play good baseball and now the wins are starting to come. They hope to continue the roll when they face Daytona State at home today at 2 p.m. and will take on Dundalk of Maryland in a doubleheader at 1 p.m. Satur day. SFSC FROM PAGE A9 reeds on the south end of the lake and again on the north end. After a couple of hours with no hits, we nally caught a couple of 2and 3-pounders but it was a very slow start. Water temps moved into the low 70s by midafternoon but it soon be came pretty clear the bass werent in the reeds. The beauty of Lake Istokpoga is there are plenty of alternatives to ippin the reeds. Back on Sunday, Feb. 9, my partner Nick DeSan ta and I caught some nice sh on the north end in the pads so we decided to give that a try. We were rewarded almost immediately with a nice 5-pounder loaded with eggs. From then until we quit around 5 oclock, we av eraged about one hit per hour. We were throwing black Zoom Trick Worms and although Bill tried a few other plastics, it seemed the sh would only hit the black baits. In the time we spent in that same area, we saw at least a half dozen big sh roll or blow up on baitsh, but we couldnt seem to get them to hit. Finally, around 4 p.m. I felt a solid tap as my bait hit the water and I could tell immediately that it was a big sh. I set the hook hard and I thought my rod would snap. It was like setting into a Mack truck! I looked over at Bill and offered him the rod and he said no, Im afraid Ill lose it and he reached for the net. Now Ive caught some big sh before but this one must have been on steroids because she immediately charged the boat, running under the boat alongside the electric motor and made a ferocious leap behind the boat. My G Loomis GLX spinning rod was bent over so far under the boat I was sure if she kept going it would snap like a straw. But it held on and for tunately, I began to gain back line as the bass turned and came back towards the boat. My fear was that she would get my line caught up in the electric motor but she came right back the way she went under and suddenly she was in the air again in front of the boat. What a ght! After what seemed a long time (probably less than a couple of minutes) I managed to bring her alongside the boat where Bill expertly slid the net under her and lifted her into the boat. A quick measurement and a couple of pictures and she was back in the water to give another sherman a thrill. Unlike many shermen, I worm sh with a spinning rod. Ive always believed I have more strength in my right arm and that my reexes are better. I sh everything else with a bait casting rod and reel. The G Loomis GLX worm rod is a very light rod and extremely sensitive and I have to admit, I was really impressed with its strength. But even more impres sive is the new line that Im using. Its called Nan-O-Fil. Its not mono and its not braid. Its something altogether different and I really like it. Unlike mono, it doesnt take a set and coil off your reel, and unlike braid, when its wet, it doesnt stick to your rod tip or guides. Unfortunately it only comes in 12-17 lb test. But Ive been using it quite a bit and I can tell you, unlike mono and braid that gets nicked and frayed after you catch a few bass, it looks like its never been used. Anyway, to get back to the sh, it was a real beauty. 26 inches in length and just over 11 pounds. Thats Lake Istokpoga shin at its best! Tomorrow I have a trip with two brothers, David and Daniel Lane. I called them tonight to set up our time to meet and give them a choice. I told them I could take them over to Lake Jackson and we could probably catch 20-25 bass up to a couple of pounds, or we could go to Lake Istokpoga and maybe get into a big sh. But I warned them that bites are few and far between. David insisted quality over quantity. Theyre looking for a wallhanger. Ill let you know.

LIVING BFriday, February 21, 2014 On Feb. 9, 1964, The Ed Sullivan Show increased its legendary status by leaps and bounds, with three guitars and a drum set. For an hour, beginning at 8 p.m. ET, Sullivan owned the tele vision stratosphere as a mindboggling 45.3 percent of U.S. households with televisions tuned in to see those four guys in their customary dark suits and ties. Lets take it a rock n roll beat further. An astound ing 60 percent of the nations households with televisions in use watched his New York-based show. Yes, CBS was living a dream scenario. On Feb. 7, 1964, Pan Ameri can Airlines Flight 101 with the inscription Beatles on its side panel landed at New Yorks new ly named Kennedy International Airport. A musical tsunami was arriving in the form of The Bea tles Coming to America party. Has it been 50 years already since Paul McCartney (age 21 and the only left-hander), Ringo Starr (23), George Harrison (20) and John Lennon (23 and mar ried with child) left Londons Heathrow Airport for a red, white and blue rst-time hello? Jackie DeShannon was among several artists, including the Righteous Brothers, performing as warm-up acts for The Beatles North American Tour in She vividly remembers their sense of humility. They were great, said De Shannon, now 72, during a telephone conversation from her Los Angeles home. They were not stuffy. They were very nice to everybody. They werent standofsh. They were lots of fun. And their wit they had a very wicked sense of humor. You could go to any coun try in the world and people could sing along with Beatles songs. They were a once in a lifetime group; the only person who comes close is Elvis Pres ley. They had God-given talent and they worked hard, so they earned their stripes. Those stripes resulted in the unprecedented top ve spots on the Billboard Hot 100 song chart in 1964: No. 1, Cant Buy Me Love; No. 2, Twist and Shout; No. 3, She Loves You; No. 4, I Want to Hold Your Hand; No. 5, Please Please Me. The Beatles got the party started with their rst news conference on U.S. soil, held at Kennedy Airport. The occasion was part welcome mat and part hilarity. When one media member asked how much money the band expected to make in the United States, drummer Ringo Starr calmly responded, Ten dollars. With that, the British In vasion had been launched. It was a veritable orgy of jos tling crowds, teenage screams, law-enforcement ofcers and a most curious media. Amid the high-decibel hoop la, the United States needed The Beatles unquestionably. The country was mired in a perpetual state of mourning a nation of grief and disbelief. When the Beatles rst arrived in New York, it had only been 77 days since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. His successor, Lyndon Johnson, had delivered his rst State of the Union address only 29 days be fore their arrival, espousing the virtues of JFKs ideals. John Kennedy was a victim of hate, Johnson said, but he was also a great builder of faith faith in our fellow Americans, whatever their creed or their color or their station in life; faith in the future of man, whatever his divi sions and differences. Then the Beatles made a dif ference; they brought the buzz; they gave Americans reason to cheer and applaud again; they also supported the transforma tive U.S. civil rights movement of the 1960s, refusing to perform before segregated audiences in the South. In 64, Bert Shipp was a televi sion news correspondent-camera man for WFAA in Dallas. When the Beatles arrived there for a concert at Memorial Au ditorium on Sept. 18, 1964, he utilized his knack for stealth to sneak into the Fab Fours dress ing room for a rare one-on-four private interview. The Beatles were good for the country, said Shipp, now 84, via telephone. Their songs were popular; they were such a spirit ed group. A healthy atmosphere followed them everywhere they went. Simply, The Beatles were icon ic game-changers. Their rst appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show garnered 73 million viewers; the nations popu lation in 1964 was about 190 million. That means approximately four out of every 10 Americans were watching. Simply put, those stats can only be explained in Su per Bowl terms. To put the viewership total for the Beatles appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in per spective, said Neil Best, sports media-sports business colum nist for Newsday in New York, it wasnt until 1978 that the Super Bowl surpassed that gure for average viewership attract ing 78.9 million viewers for the Cowboys victory over the Bron cos. By that point, the estimated United States population had grown to about 221 million. On Feb. 11, 1964, the Beatles performed their rst U.S. con cert, at the Washington Coliseum in the nations capital during their winter tour. Ironically, on that same snowy day, the moth er of Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who assassinated Kennedy, was entrenched in her second day of testifying a few blocks away on Capitol Hill before the Warren Commission, charged with investigating the murder. Concert ticket prices were an affordable $2 to $4. It was a sell out with 8,092 fans, including a wide-eyed 16-year-old who lat er became vice president of the United States Al Gore. We all loved their music, Gore told The Washington Post, but clearly there were a lot of people in that crowd who loved it even more than I did because they couldnt stop screaming. Im thrilled that iTunes now has the lm of that concert, because Ill get to hear the words clearly for the rst time. The screaming shrills by most ly female fans induced several Washington police ofcers rep resenting the huge law-enforcement presence to stuff their ears with bullets to cushion the son ic boom. Afterward, the Beatles again performed on The Ed Sulli van Show in Miami, where they found a new friend in Cas sius Clay (now Muhammad Ali), who was there training for his Ishook-up-the-world ght with heavyweight boxing champion Sonny Liston. Following a return to Britain for their United King dom spring tour, the Beatles were back in North America for an ex tensive summer tour 24 cities in 32 days with each perfor mance lasting approximately 30 minutes. The rst stop was the Cow Pal ace in Daly City, Calif., on Aug. 19, 1964. The audience was screaming, We want the Bea tles; We want the Beatles. It was great exposure for us, re called DeShannon, whose signature song was What the World Needs Now Is Love. The warm-up groups and the Beatles sometimes would en gage in jam sessions on plane trips, DeShannon recalled. And they had a pillow ght, too. Before the Beatles headed south to play at the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville on Sept. 11, they wanted assurances of desegre gation in crowd seating. John Lennon, at the time, added ma jor clarity on the Beatles stance: We never play to segregated au diences and we arent going to start now. Id sooner lose our ap pearance money. Message understood. And they ultimately played on in the Sun shine State. After their earlier winter tour, the Feb. 24 edition of Newsweek magazine published a cover story titled, Bugs About Beatles. Its premise was harsh in tone: Visually they are a nightmare: tight, dandied, EdwardianBeatnik suits and great pudding bowls of hair. Musically they are a near-disaster: guitars and drums slamming out a merciless beat that does away with secondary rhythms, harmony, and melody. Their lyrics (punctuated by nutty shouts of yeah, yeah, yeah!) are a catastrophe, a preposterous far rago of Valentine-card romantic sentiments. The conclusion: And so the odds are that they will fade away, as most adults condent ly predict. Now, approximately 1.6 billion records sold ... and counting ... numbers never lie.

B2 DAILY COMMERCIAL Friday, February 21, 2014 B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, February 21, 2014 www.newssun.com PUZZLE CORNER Solution on B5 J E SSIC A HERND ONAP Film WriterThere have been many stage and screen adaptations of Therese Ra quin, Emile Zolas 1867 novel about love and betrayal. Perhaps most no table was lmmaker Marcel Carnes 1953 version, The Adultress, star ring Simone Signoret and Raf Vallone. It was a classic slice of lm noir; a feverish take on a sordid love affair. In Secret is the latest rendering of Zolas bleak story. Elizabeth Ol sen, Oscar Isaacs, Tom Felton and Jessica Lange offer compelling per formances in a provocative remake thats stirring until its withered end. Set in 1860s France, Therese (played seductively by Olsen) is sent to live with her aunt, Madame Ra quin (Lange), an entitled and needy dame who forces her niece to marry her sickly son, Camille (played deli cately and artfully by Felton). When Camille gets a job as a clerk in Paris, the three move from the country to the bustling city, where Madame Raquin opens a fabric shop. Resigned to an uninspired life working in her aunts store, Therese, whos become increasingly lascivi ous, is even welcoming the idea of sex with her effeminate cousin to satisfy her desires. When she meets Laurent (Issacs), Camilles childhood friend, the two begin an erotic affair. Olsen and Isaacs are extremely effective to gether and their lust-ridden scenes and there are plenty only in tensify. As Therese and Laurent continue to sneak around, their devotion deepens. Uninhibited and raw, Isaacs is at his sexiest. In his rst lead role since starring in the Coen brothers Os car-nominated Inside Llewyn Da vis, he offers another authentic performance and we see his talents swell in many directions. As Llewyn, Isaacs had one consistent tone: gloomy. Here, he easily shifts from charming and arousing to dark and devious while seducing Therese and leading her down a murderous path. To be together freely, Laurent de vises a plan to kill Camille and make it look like an accident. Therese agrees to be an accomplice and the deed is done. With her cousin dead, Therese is faced with increasing guilt and be gins to lash out, including a tirade against Laurent on their wedding night. The couple then begins to unravel emotionally and phys ically. Its here that Madame Raquin starts to gain heavy sympathy. Lange plays a grieving mother, go ing from agonized to helpless, so poignantly that your heart breaks for her. At this point, the story becomes utterly unrelenting. Shirley Hender son, as Suzanne, a part of Madame Raquins social bunch, serves as the only steady comic relief. She is a constant snoop who is easily us tered, especially when the conver sation turns to detailing the atmosphere inside a morgue. Unfortunately, the nal act of the lm seems to drag on. Therese and Laurent are caught in a tedious state of misery. While Zolas prose keeps us engaged in her couples steady spiral downward, the lms conclu sion could have come much sooner. In Secret, a Roadside Attractions release, is rated R by the Motion Pic ture Association of America for sexual content and brief violent images. Running time: 107 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.Follow Jessica Herndon on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/SomeKindIn Secret is a provocative, but taxing, tale of betrayal Phil Bray/MCTJessica Lange and Tom Felton star in Charlie Strattons In Secret.MOVIE REVIEW CRI T I C S RA T ING: Dear Abby: I have been married to a wonderful man for 17 years and we have two children. My life should be perfect, and it is until its time to visit my in-laws. We dont see them more than a few times a year, but Ive taken to plead ing work as an excuse not to see them on holidays or special occasions if I can avoid it. I have even spent Christmas at home alone because I cant stand how verbally abusive my inlaws are. My mother-in-law ad mits to being mean and nasty. She says she doesnt care because she hates people. They are now pressuring my husband to move nearer to them. The thought makes me sick. My life could have been so different if these rela tives were nice, normal people. I wanted us to be friends. Im a kind per son, but I have never been good enough for them. How can I make their verbal abuse stop? Im sick of being the brunt of jokes and sarcastic comments. Outlaw in Arizona Dear Outlaw: If your husband is wonder ful, why has he tolerated his parents treating you this way for 17 years? He should have insisted from the beginning of your marriage that you be treat ed with respect. You cant make your in-laws stop their ver bal abuse, but your husband might be able to if he locates his spine and puts his foot down. There should be no more talk of moving close to these tox ic people, nor should there be any more visits to them until they either change their attitudes or learn to watch their mouths. Dear Abby: My husband is an alcoholic who at tends AA meetings. Last night he forgot to sign out of his email and I saw he has been corresponding with a woman he met at the meetings. In her mes sage she conded her problems nding a man. His reply was that she has been picking the wrong men, that he cares and that they need to talk faceto-face. I wish I had never seen the email. Because of it, I cant eat or sleep, worrying about what might possibly be going on. I dont want to confront him because he has a nasty temper, yet I feel I must do something. But what? Lost in Nowhere, Montana Dear Lost: Instead of confronting your hus band, simply ask him if he has become this womans AA sponsor. It might ex plain why she is conding in him, and why he sug gested they meet face-toface to talk, which could be entirely innocent. Does he have a history of cheat ing on you? If something is going on, it would be better for your emotional health to know what you are deal ing with. And if your husband responds with verbal or physical abuse because of his nasty temper, you should insist on marriage counseling or get out of there for your own safety.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips.

Friday, February 21, 2014 DAILY COMMERCIAL B3 www.newssun.comFriday, February 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 HEALT H Y LIVING Dear Pharmacist: What are popular medications, and their natural counter parts? A.T., Dallas Answer: This is a great question, and theres a lot of different things that come to mind. For exam ple, when I think of popular medications, I think of allergy drugs (antihis tamines), pain relievers, antacids, blood pressure drugs, cholesterol reduc ers and sleeping pills. That covers a lot of ground. Ill give you some op tions, but these natural choices do not work as strong as a drug, and Im not recommending you stop your drugs and take these either. This sort of decision is between you and your doctor. With that said, here are some interesting ideas. Allergy drugs (antihis tamines) Quercetin, a supplement that oc curs naturally in fruits and vegetables, is a powerful mast cell stabilizer, which means that it helps reduce histamine in the body. Think of it as a natural ver sion of loratadine, a popular effective drug used to treat allergies. As a benet, quercetin may help with other things like stressinduced anxiety, asthma and inammatory pain syndromes. Pain relievers Willow bark and California poppy are two herbal remedies used to relieve pain by ho listic physicians. There are drug interactions and side effects to herbs too, but these two herbs offer ef fects like natural aspirin and natural (weak) opiate drugs (respectively). Antacids Slippery elm, marshmallow root, digestive enzymes, DGL and probiotics are my go-to supplements here. Its not that they direct ly reduce acid (they dont), but they help reduce gut inammation and other problems that could trig ger the burn. There is also the possibility you need more acid (betaine with pepsin supplements) to di gest your food. Blood pressure drugs Grape seed extract can help reduce systolic blood pressure (the top number). Potassium citrate found in foods and supplements can do so too. Be careful though, not everyone can take potassium; it has in teractions. Magnesium is a strong anti-hypertensive too. Youll want to eat more basil, and perhaps garlic. I recommend eating gar lic, or taking aged garlic supplements. Cholesterol reducers I think of natural statins here Red Yeast Rice or vitamin C, particularly li posomal C. Coenzyme Q10 can help as can a cup of Tulsi tea each day. Sleeping pills This category is perhaps the hardest. As humans, we sleep thanks to melato nin and GABA. To get this pathway running, you have to go slowly and care fully, under supervision. Supplements of 5-HTP turn into serotonin, then melatonin (provided you have good B vitamin sta tus), but I suggest low doses. Special phenylat ed GABA supplements may help, like Kavinace sold online. Lemonbalm, hops and passionower are other natural relaxation herbs to discuss with your doctor. In summary, there are many choices you can consider, Ive only touched the surface. I love natu ral options, and your safety comes rst. While natural, and expected to be safer than pharmaceuti cals, botanicals may cause similar interactions, aller gies and setbacks.

www.newssun.comFriday, February 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B5 RELIGION Ladies group plans new study groupSEBRING A group of interdenomination al ladies (year-round and snowbirds) has just n ished doing a Senior Adult Bible Studies for Life (by LifeWay). The group is now looking to start the Spring 2014. The two study themes in the study are Productive: Finding Joy in What We Do and Let Hope In. The rst six weeks are in the Productive section. Many people work too much, fueled by a work aholic drive; some barely make an effort, doing the bare minimum just so that they can pay the bills and keep the house from falling apart. Both groups need balance. Many earn more than we personally need and ll their lives with the ex periences and stuff money affords; others of strug gle to get by. Both groups need balance. And many play as hard as they work; they also need balance. This study lifts up the biblical man dates to both work and rest, and it points to the way to achieve bal ance. The focus on gener ous giving will also help achieve balance. For information call the church at 385-7848 or 414-3260. The study will be at 1 p.m. Fridays, start ing March 7. The rst lesson is titled Good Work. The passage comes from Genesis 1:28, 2:8-9, 15-17. The point: Work is a gift from God, not a curse.Gods Bible School and College Choir to perform at Holiness CampAVON PARK Gods Bible School and College Choir will present a concert at the Florida Heartland GBS Choir Rally at the Avon Park Holiness Camp on Monday, February 24th at 7 pm.

SNAP S HOT S LO C A L RE L IGIONA preacher once presented a powerful lesson on the differences between Heaven and Hell. He talked about the beautiful images that the Bible gives of Heav en and the terrible descriptions it provides of Hell. He went on to talk about how every one should do their best to live their lives accord ing to Gods plan so that each might nd a home in Heaven. As is sometimes the case, this particular con gregation had a Sunday morning regular (This is the person who goes to sleep every Sunday morning like clockwork during the sermon.). It just so happened that this fellow was sitting on the front row. Toward the end of the lesson, the preacher made a forceful point about how sinful living would lead to an eternity in Hell. He was so excited about the message he was deliv ering and the absurdity of anyone choosing to go to Hell that at an emotional high point of the sermon, he shouted the question, If anyone present today chooses to go to Hell, then let him stand up right now! Well, all that poor fel low on the front row heard was, Stand up right now! So, he stood up right then and there. As he looked around, he noticed that except for the preacher behind the podium, he was the only one standing! Un sure as to what had just happened and trying to compose himself, the man turned to the front and said, Preacher, I dont know what we just voted on, but it looks like you and I are the only ones for it! I frequently ask chil dren how we talk to God, and they correctly an swer, Prayer. I then ask them how God talks to us, and again, they cor rectly respond, The Bible. The rest of us, however, sometimes forget this basic point when it comes to our commu nication with God. We are more than happy to talk to Him through prayer when we feel we need to, but how often do we stop to listen to what He is trying to tell us through His word. Of ten, we behave just like the Sunday morning regular. Either we drift in and out of the Bible periodically or we sleep right through Gods en tire message for us. 2 Timothy 3:16 and 17 reads, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, re buking, correcting and training in righteous ness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. If God speaks to us through scripture, and all scripture is use ful to us, then should not each of us be listen ing to God as closely as we can through the daily study of His word? May be it is time for each of us to wake up, pay at tention, and listen closely to what God has to say.Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Se bring Parkway.

KEVINS KOMMENTSKevin Patterson PHILADELPHIA (AP) A Philadelphia couple who believe in faith-healing have been sentenced to 3 to seven years in pris on in the death of a second child who died without seeing a doctor. Philadelphia Com mon Pleas Judge Benjamin Lerner told Herbert and Catherine Schaible on Wednesday that it wasnt 8-month-old Brandons time to die. He said: Youve killed two of your children ... not God, not your church, not religious devotion you. The Schaibles pleaded no contest. They are thirdgeneration members of a small Pentacostal com munity, the First Century Gospel Church in north east Philadelphia. Both expressed remorse and apologized for violat ing a court order to seek medical care for their chil dren following the 2009 death of a 2-year-old son of untreated pneumonia. Their six surviving mi nor children are now in foster care. We believe in divine healing, that Jesus shed blood for our healing and that he died on the cross to break the devils pow er, Herbert Schaible said in a 2013 police state ment. Medicine, he said, is against our religious beliefs. A jury had convict ed both parents of involuntary manslaughter in Kents death, and they were put on 10 years of probation that includ ed orders to seek medical care if any other child got sick. After Brandons death, an irate judge found they had violated parole. Prosecutors have de scribed the boys symptoms as eerily similar, and said they included la bored breathing and a refusal to eat. Catherine Schaibles lawyer, though, said her client tried to feed Brandon during his illness and applied baby powder to keep him comfortable. Their pastor, Nel son Clark, has said the Schaibles lost their sons because of a spiritual lack in their lives and insisted they would not seek medical care even if an other child appeared near death.Pope talks poverty, eyes finance branch overhaul VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Francis penned a new missive on the injus tices of poverty Wednesday amid indications he is eyeing a major over haul of the Vaticans nancial house by creating a nance ministry to better serve the church. Honduran Cardinal Os car Rodriguez Maradiaga, a key adviser in Francis Group of Eight cardinal cabinet, told the French Catholic newspaper La Croix that creating a nance secretariat was needed to better organize the diverse nancial de partments. He said a cardinal would probably head it, assisted by a permanent advisory body of lay experts. The development came as Francis and his G8 cardinals ended three days of meetings to hear proposals for reform by experts who have been studying the Vaticans nancial institutions. Based on the experts reports, the G8 cardinals made their own nancial reform rec ommendations to Francis, but no decisions were im mediately announced .Parents sent to prison in Pennsylvania for second prayer death of child M C Y K

Future studies will com pare the various teachings of religions under the umbrella of Chris tendom and the Bible. But now Christ is ris en from the dead, and has become the rst fruits of those who have fallen asleep. (1 Corin thians 15:20) Observe the array of witness es listed in verses 5-8. It is interesting to note the writing of Muham mad some 600 years after the resurrection: And because of their say ing: We slew the Messiah Jesus son of Mary, Allahs messenger-They slew him not nor cruci ed, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concern ing it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain. (Quran, Surah IV, 157) Contrast this to Jesus own statement in Mat thew 20:18,19 and the apostles in Acts 2 regard ing the death and resur rection of the Messiah. Ahmed Deedat, a Mus lin writer, stated: Let me give you a quick summa ry of the points we have discussed so far, con cluding that Jesus Christ was neither killed nor was he crucied, as al leged by the Christians and the Jews, but he was ALIVE! (Crucixion or Cruciction, page 78, written in l984). Then he lists 30 points in an ef fort to verify his claim that Jesus was not cru cied/died. This effort is hypocritical because the uses a book (Bible) that he does not accept as authority in an effort to prove his points. Ob serve point No. 9, Ency clopedia Biblica under article Cross. Column 960 says that when the spear was thrust Jesus was alive. Contrast this to an eyewitness account in John 19:33-35. Yahi ya Emerick stated, So in their anger they plot ted to crucify him on a Roman cross. But Jesus slipped from their grip at the last moment, and all the while they thought they had succeeded. They were sure they had killed him, but God an swered Jesus prayer and saved him from their schemes. Confusion overtook the mob and they might have killed the man who betrayed Jesus instead. In any case, Jesus escaped from their grasp. (Who Was Jesus?... published by Is lamic Circle of North America) Once again, it is re freshing and uplifting to read in the four gospel accounts of eyewitness of the death and buri al and resurrected Lamb of God. The Twelve stood bold ly on Pentecost in Jerusalem and declared the resurrection of Je sus: Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attest ed by God to you by mir acles, wonders and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves knowHim, being delivered by the determined coun cil and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucied, and put to death; whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death because it was not possible that He should be held by it (Acts 2:22-24). This was within 50 days of Jesus death and resurrection and these claims were not refuted. In fact, some 3,000 souls (verses 3641) were convicted of the Truth proclaimed. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who accord ing to His abundant mer cy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (First Peter 1:3). This event changed dejection, disillusion, hopelessness and despair into a burn ing zeal that knew no bounds! They spread the teachings of the Christ throughout the world with rapidity unequaled in history. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable (First Corinthians 15:19).Frank Parker can be contacted at frankparker27@gmail.com/.

Houchin said the state is ready to put Jonathan Ro driguez and Kenneth Felipe on trial for rst-degree murder in connection with the June 2012 beating death of the 20-yearold Doty. The main defendants will be tried this summer, thats the goal, Houchin said Thursday afternoon. Certainly the states ready, the state has been ready. The defense is still taking depositions. In fact, we have another confer ence in a few days with witnesses. There are a lot of witnesses in this case. Unfortunately, I cant give you an exact date. My goal is to have this case begin trial by midsummer. One of the de fense attorneys is booked through the end of summer, so Im wanting to get this bigger case done rst.

Commissioners have the option of assessing anywhere from 1 to 5 cents per gallon on the local option, and have long opted for charging the full nickel with another penny per gallon coming from the so-called ninth cent. Money from those taxes go to main tain local streets and roadways. County ofcials have projected the nancial impact for the ninth cent fuel tax will be better than $500,000. The income from the 5-cent local option fuel tax is projected at around $1.5 million. The action actually will extend both the ninth cent and the local option fuel tax through the year 2019. Under Florida State statutes, county governments are authorized to levy up to 12 cents of local option fuel taxes in three separate levies on fuel sold with in the county. The funds are used for transportation expenditures. Highlands imposes the full 5 cents per gallon. The local option fuel tax is levied on gasoline only and not on die sel. Those proceeds also are used for transportation expenditures.County renews fuel taxesSEE FUEL | A8 BY R OD L EWISNews-Sun CorrespondentLAKE PLACID Heated debate was the norm Monday night when the Town Council discussed re inspec tions, annexing areas into the town for the creation of a Community Redevel opment Agency (CRA) and a resolution for funding to improve the health of Lake McCoy.

The 20-foot long, 8-foot tall replica of the human colon will be here as part of Colorectal Cancer Awareness month. It will be on display from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, March 1, at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agricultural Civic Center. Nurse Do reen Moran made the ar rangements to bring the display in connection with the Florida Department of Health and Prevent Cancer. It is the second leading cause of death from cancer and it is preventable, Moran said. Usually a $12,000 charge, Moran explained the display will be in Highlands County at no cost. Among other things, plans are to have guided tours and show people how polyps and tumors develop and how they are removed. There will be physicians and different people there in an effort to help increase awareness, she said. In fact, were going to have an Ask a Doc table where people can get their answers on the spot. Additionally, Moran plans to have YouTube videos playing, demon strating colon procedures and how they are per formed. The local nurse got the idea while working on Christmas decorations. I was decorating my door at work. I was look ing for ideas and stumbled across a YouTube video on the Super Colon, she said. Part of the reason Moran was able to enlist the help of Prevent Cancer, was because of the demographics of Highlands County. The median age is 51, and that is the time colorectal cancer screen ings should take place, she said. Unless there is a family history, then they should begin sooner. Moran, who described herself as being on a mission, said if the dis play helped one individual it would be worth it.Super Colon coming to visit BY BARRY F OS TERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING When he took over as head ranger at Highlands Hammock State Park, Brian Pinson said one of his goals would be to increase outreach and special events at the states old est Civilian Conservation Corps-built facility. It begins for him from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday with Know Your Neighborhood, which will bring together different agencies and displays designed to educate the public in a fun way at the Hammock. The community has been here for Highlands Hammock for so long and we just want to give back he said. This is just another reason to come out to the park. There will be a wide ar ray of Florida Park Ser vice rangers with infor mation about Highlands Hammock as well as information about other functions they perform. Some of the staff are park rangers, some of them are wildland re ghters, so we will be talking to the visitors about those things, he said. Representatives of the Florida Forestry Ser vice also will be in attendance and will discuss how to rewise homes in wooded areas as wildre season approaches. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection will be on hand as well with displays and information. The DEP will be there with their regulatory division out of Fort Mey ers. They will tell citizens what they can and cannot do under state law, he said. A special presentation will be made by the Florida Fish and Wild life Conservation Commission. The agency has been talking about bears. A Sebring woman was re cently arrested for feeding bears after a judge ordered her to stop. They will have their brand new culvert trap, which they have utilized to trap and relocate nui sance bears, Pinson said. In addition to the displays, Pinson said there will be a wide array of equipment that residents may touch and climb on to see it up close and personal. Were going to have an airboat, a tractor/ plow unit from the For estry service and a wide array of trucks and other equipment used by the various agencies, he said. Were even going to have a decommissioned helicopter so kids can actually get up in it, ip the switches and get their pictures taken in it. Also on display will be a completely refurbished brush re truck that dates back to the 1940s. In addition to the out door displays, the Civilian Conservation Corps Museum at the park will be open, and members of the award-winning Highlands Hammock Citizens Support Organization will be cooking hot dogs and selling Tshirts as a fundraiser. The trams will be running as they always do. We plan to show folks the results of a couple of prescribed burns we have just completed, he said. The displays will be set up Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. There is no additional charge for the event, only regular park admission fees will be assessed. Saturday evening will be another edition of Music in the Park. Staged by the Friends of High lands Hammock State Park, the program will feature the popular California Toe Jam Band. There will be a separate fee of $5 per person for that event, with children 12 and under admitted free.

There are smart ways to harness electronic learning, and there are dumb ways. Dumb: The Los Angeles public schools headlong, $1 billion, belly-op leap last year into putting an iPad in the hands of every student, much as proposed by for mer City Council Speaker and mayoral candidate Christine Quinn. Educators in L.A. were seduced by the shiny devices. But software wasnt ready. Wireless connectivity, which is a must, was spotty at best. After a backlash, the L.A. board was forced to slow the rollout to get it right. With (New York) Gov. (Andrew) Cuomo pledging to offer $2 billion in technol ogy upgrades for schools if they deliver thought-through plans, and with Pres ident Obama looking at a similar $3 bil lion national program, the lesson is that the gizmos are secondary to the educa tional material they can provide. Theres great stuff out there if teachers know where to look. To cite one example, American history nerd Ken Burns is out with an iPad app that organizes bite-size sections of his 40 years worth of docu mentaries for easy absorption. Users can delve into major events along a time line that stretches from the coun trys founding to the modern stories of baseball and jazz. Or they can explore the sweep of the American story by theme: race, innovation, politics, hard times, etc. Similarly, the Khan Academy is reshap ing how kids and adults can learn with an exhaustive library of amazing animated content. The point is that, as Cuomo follows through on his $2 billion promise, school districts will have no excuse for falling short of excellence if they apply for mon ey.An editorial from the Daily News of New York.Gadgets no substitute for educationANOTHER VIEWThe big debate is on as it becomes clear that despite GOPers and Fox News continued clamor about Benghazi, Hillary Clinton is riding high in polls that match her up against Democrats and Republicans. According to a McClatchy-Marist poll, the former Secretary of State would today hand ily beat all of her potential Republican challengers, with Rep. Paul Ryan giving her the toughest run (52 percent to 44 per cent). Among Democrats, a new Washington PostABC News poll gives her a six to one lead over potential party competitors. So this means you can throw away your new crystal ball? Not quite. If doing well in early polls and looking like a front-runner was a certainty then we would have had President Edmund Muskie, President John Connally, President Rudi Guiliani and President Hillary Clinton. Amid growing Democratic consensus about Hillary and a circular ring squad in the GOP, Republicans are going after her. Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has been hammer ing former President Bill Clintons predatory behavior with Monica Lewinsky, and saying while it isnt Hillarys fault, its sometimes hard to separate one from the other an argument bound to insult many women voters. Some conservative talkers now gleefully echo Paul. Republican National Committee chairman Rance Priebus says everything is on the table to use against Hillary Clinton, including a truckload of negative material. But the strategy of making Bill Clinton the issue is bound to fail for many reasons. Just a few: under-30 voters who could care less about the 90s, Bill Clintons 1990s sexual escapades have lost all shock value, and the fact that there was that teeny weenie thing called impeachment which happened which ended in Clinton nishing his term with sky-high poll numbers and Hillary Clinton later getting handily elected as New Yorks Senator. A strategy counting on 21st century voters having Clinton fatigue may be cheered by Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, but its a creaky strategy that dates back to the end of Bill Clintons rst Presidential term. The late Christopher Hitchens, who was often highly critical of Hillary Clinton, raised the issue when Hillary ran for President in 2008: What would it take to break this cheap little spell and make us wake up and inquire what on earth we are doing when we make the Clinton fam ily drama yet again a central part of our own politics? And then theres that other question. The GOP is abuzz about efforts to try and get former Florida Jeb Bush into the Republi can Party 2016 Presidential Nomination Sweepstakes now that Bridgegate has turned former-perceivedfrontrunner New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie into what comedian Bill Maher calls pounds of toast. Blogger Martin Longman bluntly asked the ques tion this way: Is Jeb Bush inevitable? Would another Clinton/Bush contest prove that were not a representative democracy but a nepotistic oligarchy? Those who argue Hillary Clinton is not inevitable take arguments on why she seemingly is and ip them around. But Democratic strategist Bob Shrum, writing in The Daily Beast, argues the bottom-line reality can be seen in Republican reaction: From contorted Benghazi conspiracy theories to Rand Pauls babble about Monica Lewinsky, they are attacking Hillary ercely because they fear her most. And they should be very, very afraid. One reason: Hillary Clin ton had a re in her belly to have a signicant impact on the world long before she met her husband. She got in political trouble during his 1992 Presidential campaign by candidly saying about her work as an attorney: You know, I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas, but what I decided to do was to fulll my profession, which I entered before my husband was in pub lic life. She may not be inevitable, but those who try to microwave old attacks against her and her husband and think they can send her home to bake cookies and have teas may nd she cooks their political goose. And pundits who underestimate her strengths could nd themselves eating crow on election day.Joe Gandelman is a veteran journalist who wrote for newspapers overseas and in the United States. Follow him on Twitter: www.twitter.com/joegandelman. Guest columns are the opin ion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff.Are we inevitably on the path to Hillaryland? GUEST COLUMNJoe Gandelman Response to Kevins Komments on GraceI experienced a bit of angst in reading the Kevins Kom ments column on Feb. 14. Id go to the wall for Pastor Kevins right to say what he did, but I hope not too many accept his conclusion that one who has been truly born again can undo what God has done in making him His child. This isnt the place to refute his interpretation of all the Scriptures he used to prove his point. It should be noted, though, that each one, in its context, suggests something altogether different. Im not embarrassed to be among those who believe in the eternal security of those who have truly received Christ as Savior. All of us know peo ple who have professed a relationship with Christ, and seem to have gone back or fallen from grace. The parable Kevin cites from Luke 8, however, doesnt teach that those who have the real thing can fall away, but that those that fall away never had the real thing to begin with. Not one of the three soils cited ever bore fruit the one true mark of a believer. Do I believe once saved, al ways saved? Oh, yes. Else what does Jesus mean when He says in John 10:28-29, And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of My Fathers hand? Or what is the signicance of John 5:24, where Jesus declares, Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has ever lasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life? Kevin correctly quoted Peter as saying, Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure. But, far from a warning about losing ones salvation, its a call to assurance, for the believ er to afrm that his call and election are the real deal, and to say with the Apostle Paul, I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.DR.

Arrangements entrusted to: Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home stephensonnelsonfh.comOBITUARIES BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING Signs keep popping up at Sebring City Council meet ings, and council members continue to express their frustrations with sign ordinance issues of all types. Tuesdays regular council meet ing brought more sign amendment requests to the council and members were reluctant to budge. Majestic Cove sales executive John Riley approached council Tuesday asking for a little leeway when it came to the upcoming open house and sales special. Riley was requesting temporary signage that would help promote the sale of the condo units. Majestic Cove is zoned residential, which restricts real estate signage to four square feet. Riley also requested permission from council to incor porate three swoosh signs tall ags also known as feather banners on the north and south end of the property to market the upcoming open house and condo sales at the property. The requests opened up deep discussion by council members, many who have long had a bad taste in their mouth when dealing with signage throughout the city. I can see the advantage, for your type of business, of having swoosh signs, but an over-abundance of them can be an annoyance to the adjacent property owners. I dont have a problem with these on a temporary basis, council presi dent Andrew Fells said. But violations at other properties ended up standing in the way of Majestic Coves request. I really appreciate you at least coming and asking permission be fore just adding signage to your property, but I really have a problem. I question why we have an or dinance when its not even being enforced, Fells said. I am frus trated when I see pictures of all these violations for such a long time. Id like these signs removed and I think we need to enforce what we have on the books now. Fellow councilman John Clark echoed Fells frustration with violations at other apartment complexes. I dont know, I have a real hard time making an exception for you and then telling someone else they cant put up a swoosh sign. For the time being though, I support the residents, the people who have picked up the phone and com plained. Its obvious we dont enforce our rules so well sometimes, but I would like to see these signs removed, Clark said. The discussion continued with Mayor George Hensley weighing in with his opinion. Its time to get our act togeth er and eliminate this other stuff ... Should we give these other proper ties a time limit and allow this? Im more inclined to say let everybody keep them up while we clean it (or dinance) up. Lets let P and Z (Plan ning and Zoning) nish up this or dinance, Hensley said. Im not for giving them another second. Theyre lucky theyve gotten this far, Fells said. City Attorney Bob Swaine spoke on behalf of the properties and said it was inappropriate to beat up on them (Majestic Cove) while the other people are already doing it. Planning and Zoning director Jim Polatty said his department is knee deep in the re-vamping of the overall sign ordinance, which was ordered by the council late last summer. Majestic Cove ultimately was de nied the opportunity to place any new signs on the property after two of councilman Bud Whitlocks motions died due to a second. No action was taken on the request to propose an amendment to the ordinance. Fells, Clark and Hensley were very vocal about the future enforcement of the citys current sign ordinance. How are we permitting the signs that are there now? Fells asked. I think in light of this, we need to step up our sign enforcement, Hensley said. I agree with George, Clark said. I want our current ordinance en forced.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.Majestic Cove request sparks sign ordinance discussion Katara Simmons/News-SunMajestic Coves request for temporary signage was denied by Sebring City Council on Tuesday.

The Cracker Trail Ride stopped off at the school again on its annual ride, which has been going on for 27 years to pay trib ute to south central Flor idas cattle ranching and cattle-driving history. The ride winds its way from East Manatee County to Fort Pierce for a parade on Sunday. The group camped Tuesday at Kahn Ranch in east Hardee County before taking State Road 66 to Highlands. After the school visit one of two on the route the group crossed U.S. 27 at noon, at the junc tion with U.S. 98 and State Road 66. Its the halfway point of the trek. Sadness visited the ride this year as Cracker Trail Association president Charlie Mercer led a riderless horse through the intersection to honor longtime ride patron and supporter Clarence Polston, who passed away in January. Were doing this as a tribute to his family and Clarences passion for the Cracker Trail, Mercer said. The school visit was lively, however. Riding to school on horseback may not be typical, but it was enjoyed by students and the young riders, alike. Paul and Suzanne Park of Sarasota County, who have ridden the trail for 10 years, were there with their son, Todd, and daughter, Isabella. Su zanne said riders stop at Cracker Trail Elementary because of its name and proximity to the route. They also stop at a school in Zolfo Springs, she said. Todd showed off his skills cracking a whip sparring a bit with his mothers skills while Is abella had her paint horse, Even Steven, perform tricks. Paul led a horse around the lot to visit with students. Kim Ming of Bradenton also led her mustang, Desert Rose Rosie for short to visit with students and teachers. She said the rusty brown 8-year-old had been brought in from the wild and trained by Wolfes Born to Ride. Before the riders ar rived, youngsters were instructed to approach the horses calmly, one at a time, and to follow directions of the riders. Assistant Principal Jeannie Inagawa said the school is proud to pay homage to Floridas cattle heritage, and is even playing a free-admission Hoedown from 5-7 p.m. March 27.

BY BARR Y FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Did the Founding Fathers advocate the separation of church and state? Did they reject expressions of Christianity in government? Did they intend for federal institu tions to be religiously neutral? Did they even approve of same-sex marriages? These and more questions are slated to be addressed in a three-day seminar to be held today, Saturday and Sunday at Sebring Parkway church of Christ. Titled The Silencing of God, the program will be presented by Dr. David Miller. Dr. Miller and I have been friends for years, said Kevin Patterson, who preaches at Sebring Park way church of Christ. We just felt in light of world events it was time for us to host such a program. Miller is a graduate of Lubbock Christian University, where he earned a bachelors degree in speech and Bible. He earned a masters degree in speech communication from Texas Tech University and two more masters from the Harding School of Theology. Dave has been doing research on this for years. He will be showing photos of founding documents and other information that really will startle some people, Patterson said. Miller will make the ar gument that the forces of political correctness have systematically been expunging Christianity from American life. Attendees will be shown what Miller says is evidence of how the American Republic was purposely founded on the moral principles of the Christian religion. In the evening sessions, we will have a break between the 7 and 8 (p.m.) presentations so people can get up and stretch their legs, Patterson said. Sunday morning, it will be part of our 9 (a.m.) Bible study and 10 (a.m.) wor ship service. We also will have a covered dish dinner following. The nal session will be Sunday afternoon at 1. Patterson said there would be plenty of room, as the church has 400 seats in the sanctuary. The church is at 3800 Se bring Parkway.

There can be no purchase requirement and the person receiving the alcohol must be the legal age of 21 or older. The council approved the motion to contin ue Wine Walks and similar events with a 3-1 vote. There were a few stipulations set in place for mer chants and participants of the events. Mayor George Hens ley, who is no stranger to the world of insurance, ex plained that the city needed to be covered in the event an accident takes place as a result of attendance at one of the Wine Walks or a similar function. The city has protection. We want to put it into place where the city is removed from any naming of a lawsuit. You have to set up certain barriers, similar to a construction contract, Hensley said. Council members continued discussing the necessary stipulations needed in order to keep the alcohol-centered events in downtown Sebring, however, there was one council member who was not in favor of the changes or the Wine Walks at all. It is the role of this council to protect the taxpayers, said councilmen John Clark. If they (mer chants) cant get insurance as the city specied then we wont waive the open container ordinance. Clark was eventually outnumbered as he cast the only dissenting vote. Bud Whitlock made the motion to allow the Wine Walks, and similar events, so long as the city is in cluded as an additional insured in the merchants insurance plan, the citys special event application would be amended to include hold harmless language, and the Certicate of Insurance species ei ther liquor liability is included in the remarks section of the certicate or the host liquor liability is specied in the certicate.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or at 385-6155 ext: 526.

Neither defendant was present in court for their pre-trial hearing Wednesday but Makris defense attorney, Bill Fletcher, did speak on his behalf. This is a similar situ ation (to the last docket). Its an accessory after the fact in a murder case. Depositions are being taken ... Im requesting a one-cycle continuance, Fletcher said. Fletcher mentioned briey that a plea ar rangement has been discussed with Houchin. There is a plea anticipation; we just havent talked negotiations, Fletcher said. Fletcher said that Makris has continued to cooperate with the state. A agreement for Makris was expected last spring, however the deal was never brought to the ta ble. Makris is accused as an accessory because prosecutors say he held a bag of clothing, tennis shoes and other items for one of the accused killers. Burgos has been less cooperative with the state and no plea deal or arrangement is expect ed. Burgos is accused of hiding Rodriguez and Felipe at his Orlando apartment following the brutal killing of Doty.

DOTY FROM PAGE A1along with Cynthia Letcher, said 255 middle, junior high and high school students from DeSoto, Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Glades and Okeechobee counties converged on the college this week. Its about the only place big enough to hold us, Thomas said. Of those, 24 will go to state competition April 8-10 at the Lakeland Cen ter in Lakeland, he said, while four from this region two competitors and two observers will be sent directly to the International Science and Engineering Fair, held this year in Los Angeles, he said. The winners will be announced tonight. Some students at this weeks fair had competed at the international lev el, including Rayna Parks (Pittsburgh, 2012) and Meagen Shivers (Phoenix, 2013). Both are 11thgraders at Hardee Senior High School. They, along with other students who did well, found real-world applications to their research and tried to answer the questions of why and how, said teachers and judges. For example, Cady Mc Gehee of Okeechobee High School wanted to know how dairy farmers might test calves early for Mycoplasma bovis, a bac terium that poisons milk, causes respiratory infections and costs the dairy industry $102 million each year. Current treatments cant be given to lactating cows, but theres no effective way to test cows before they give birth at 22 months and give milk, McGahee said. By then, its too late. Drawing from her fathers veterinarian background and her mothers nursing experience, McGahee drew both tears and sinus uid from infected cows and found the disease. Next year, she hopes to test calves the same way. Shivers wanted to nd a way to remove crude oil from water and send it for rening. She designed a centrifuge and tested ab sorbent substances to see how well the two would work together. She said the idea for her three-year project came from watching news coverage of the British Petroleum Gulf of Mexico oil spill in 2010. BP absolutely had no plan of attack, Shivers said. Testing both chemical and organic substances, she found a sunower ex tract absorbed the most oil for the amount of substance used, and spun out the most oil in one minute at 6,500 rpm. She hopes to increase efciency by varying the spin time, spin rate or substance mixture. Parks 2012 project in volved protecting har vesting and processing equipment from citric acid. She found a polymer coating worked better than paint. This year, she studied the effects of diz ziness on cognitive ability. It had some effect but not enough to make a differ ence, she said. Each county is allowed to send up to 50 students from secondary schools, said Larry McCandless, science teacher at Hardee Junior High School. This year, 25 students went from his school while 24 students under his col league Rob Beatty came from Hardee Senior High School. Beatty said students excel best by rst learning scientic fundamentals in middle school so they understand the physics, chemistry and biology, then branching out in high school to ask why and how things happen, and if things could be different. Leana Revell, vice pres ident of Educational and Student Services at SFSC, said students work was remarkable, especial ly when they presented their own work. For some, it was the rst time they had ever done that. One student who impressed her was Jansen Walker of Hardee Junior High School, whose study on citrus showed that unusually cold nights increase sugar content. She hadnt expected it, Revell said. Revell also said Walker presented her ndings well. That girl had it together, Revell said. SCIENCE FROM PAGE A1 FUEL FROM PAGE A1 Placid last year, he said. I am satised with what the businesses are doing and I think they are doing a good job, said council member Debra Worley. The busi nesses have been inspected by their families or themselves, which is the state statute. The debate continued until Ray Royce reframed the issue. There are two things we can do, Royce said. Either we contact the county and have them do inspections like the interlocal agreement says or we do nothing. Royce added that a let ter should be drafted by the Mayor John Holbrook reminding the county that they are responsible for inspections and that the mayor be notied when and where the inspections took place and of any violations that were found. The motion carried and Town Administrator Phil Williams suggested that the business tax would be on the next agenda and there should be a discussion on triggers and other related issues. The discussion about the proposed CRA heated up rather quickly, also. I dont want anyone to be annexed into the town under the thought of being in the CRA and have the wheels fall off, Holbrook said. If they want to be considered for the CRA, they need to be annexed into the town, said Councilman Steve Bas tardi. We are looking for the potential for a CRA, and if they want to be part of it, there is no other way. Worley requested that Williams come with her to discuss annexation in the areas that are recom mended for the CRA. The debate spilled over into the audience and Holbrook had to ask the spectators to be quiet so that council members could hear each other. The debate nally end ed when Holbrook said that the council had already given approval for Williams to accompany Worley on annexation trips. I would like to make a motion to hold up the RFQ (Request For Quo tation) temporarily to nd out about the annexation pursuit, said Royce. Two or three weeks is recommended. Worley, who is spear heading the CRA project, said two weeks or three weeks will be OK. We can discuss it at the next council meeting. The Lake McCoy discussion started when Worley brought up a request for help from the town in funding support a project to save the lake. Worley said the Soil and Water district was willing to give a match of $25,000, but there was an unexpected shortfall of $17,500. Worley stated that she is looking at many differ ent avenues to raise the funds the funds needed. There is a watershed committee meeting (today) at 6 p.m. and the public is invited to attend. The discussion got more intense when details such as how the money will be spent, the amount of the lake that is in the town limit and the fact that the lake has no public access. The council was dead locked with Royce and Bastardi voting no and Worley and Waldron voting yes. Holbrook broke the tie with a yes vote so that $2,500 will be set aside for the project. In other business: The county intends to close West Interlake Blvd. from Main Street to North Tangerine Drive due to paving beginning Saturday at 5 a.m. until Monday at 5:00 a.m. Detours will be posted. The council decided to continue with sup plying water to Lake Country Elementary School. The council approved the Police Department to surplus items that are no longer needed. COUNCIL FROM PAGE A1 BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterLAKE PLACID Responding to rumors that a local re station might be closing its doors, Emer gency Operations Director Time Eures said that is not the case. There are no plans underfoot to close re departments, Eures said Thursday to questions re garding Sun N Lake Volunteer Fire Department in Lake Placid. The only county-run station that has closed in recent history was Sun N Lake Volunteer Fire Department in August 2013. It covered the Sun N Lake Im provement District in Sebring. Those services are now being handled by West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department. Of the 12 departments in the county, only two Avon Park Fire Department and Sebring Fire and Rescue are paid departments funded by municipalities. All other departments are run by the Highlands County govern ment and are volunteer departments with budgets from proper ty assessments, Eures said. Charles Andrews, Fire Services supervisor, said some departments havent raised those assessments in 20 years while the cost of fuel and replacing equipment and trucks have all gone up. Assessments also pay to train vol unteer reghters for all emer gency situations. Currently, the Sun N Lake station in Lake Placid has two paid reghters to augment the departments ability to call in volunteers on weekdays. It is not the only volunteer department that pays for personnel, Eures said. In strictly volunteer stations, assessments pay only for over head costs, equipment and training. Eures said he and his re chiefs would review budgets this year and make sure that re sta tions can maintain their levels of re service. If they can offset that (with as sessments), great. We try to nd a situation where everyone wins, Eures said. Chief Stan Schuham, when asked about the rumors, de clined to comment and deferred questions up the chain of command. Andrews also declined to comment on any specic questions about stations staying open or closing and referred detailed questions to Eures. I have never and would never tell members not to speak, Eures said about the reluctance of his chief and supervisor to discuss cost matters. Eures said he would only ask members not to speak if ques tions involve protected medical information or a subject of policy, which needs to be answered by a supervisor or director like him.Eures: No fire stations slated for closing M C Y K

www.newssun.comFriday, February 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A9 SPORTS BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Nerves and anxiousness were on display early in the Blue Streaks 64-40, regional seminal loss to Mariner Tuesday night. The Sebring program hadnt reached this stage of the state playoffs in more than a decade and it was a rst step onto this stage for these particular Streaks. Hurried passes, missed lay-ups and four, rst-half charge calls certainly were evidence of the excess adrenaline, and helped the visiting Tritons expand on their lead. Down 7-0 after inside scores from Rodney Hunter and a three from Kaleb Darrett, Sebring got back into it on a Quantrae Rouse trey and a lay-in on a break from Gary Demar est. But those charges and turnovers gave Mariner extra opportunities to cash in on and that they did. Darrett hit another from downtown and Hunter put in a baseline drive before Connor Cook dropped in a oater. Rodney Powery later crashed the offensive boards for a follow and foul for a three-point play, but Darrett and Hunter each scored again to put the decit at a still manageable 18-11. The Tritons, however, began to pull away when they began the second with an 8-0 run. Darrett got loose on a fast break and threw down a thunderous dunk and would get another fastbreak lay-up moments later. Hunter scored inside and Darrett snagged a steal and slammed home another and the margin stood at 26-11. Jordan Strickland hit a baseline oater and Rouse put back his own miss. But the Streaks would add just one more free throw while Mariner got a trey from Kris Carpenter and a three-point play from Caleb Taylor to make it a 33-16 game at the half. Any hope of clawing their way back into it began to fade away for the Blue Streaks as the Tritons kept their offense rolling to the tune of 20 third-period points. Carpenter hit a pair from downtown, Isaiah Darrett scored three times and Hunter twice, while Sebring totaled 12 in the frame to make it a 53-28 contest and be all but out of reach. We could have stayed with them, but the turnovers really hurt us, 13 turnovers, Blue Streak head coach Princeton Harris said. We gave them the game with the turnovers. But Harris post-game frustration soon subsided as he reected back on the season his squad turned in. We won just ve games last year, he said. It says a lot for the hard work of these kids to have the kind of year they did. I couldnt be prouder. And as far as looking ahead, Harris certainly likes what he sees. We have some very good depth with our JV team and the future looks bright for us.Bucs blast Red DevilsAVON PARK Up on the northern edge of the county, the Devils game was less in doubt as the Buccaneers of Berkeley Prep took over early and never relented in a 76-46 win in the Class 4A regional seminal. A barrage of three pointers, four of them in the opening quarter, combined with ve free throws Streaks, Red Devils bounced Dan Hoehne/News-SunGary Demarest splits a pair of Triton defenders, but the Streaks wouldnt be able to get past visiting Mariner Tuesday night. SEE HOOPS | A11 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK The tide may be starting to turn for the South Florida State College baseball team. After a slow start to the season, as far as the win column is concerned, the Panthers won their second in a row Wednesday night, climbing back out of two decits to top Indian River 12-9. Weve been playing good baseball most of the season but we werent getting the wins, head coach Rick Hitt said. Weve been in close games where we just needed to make a play and didnt. On Wednesday night they did, and needed to as the visiting Pioneers broke out of the gate with a four-run rst. Shaquille Rolle and Randy Batista greeted Panther starter Tyler Knowles with a single and double, respectively to put runners at second and third. Knowles got a ground-out to third, but Ryan Ripken soon slashed one up the middle to bring both runners in. A later error and back-toback, swinging-bunt base hits plated two more for a 4-0 Indian River lead. South Florida scratched for one in the bottom of the second when an ineld single from Dalton Scarborough brought Justin Tedder in, and RBI singles from Isaiah Dean and Tedder, along with a runscoring grounder off Jorge Flores bat, tied it at 4-4 after three.SFSC Panthers put it to Pioneers Dan Hoehne/News-SunRichard Trotter res to rst off a bunt attempt in SFSCs 12-9 win over Indian River Wednesday. SEE SFSC | A11This has been a strange winter so far; near record high temperatures, multiple cold fronts and over night temperatures dipping into the 20s and 30s. Not that Im complaining mind you. One look at the weather theyre getting up north and Im real happy with the weather here. But it has been an unusual weather pattern for the past two months. Two weeks ago Lake Istokpoga water temper atures were in the midseventies, with spawning sh up in the shallows and good numbers being caught all over the lake. Then a cold snap, compounded by some cold nights and early this week the lake water temper atures were back in the mid-sixties. This sudden increase and then decrease has a big impact on the spawning bass, allowing them to move shallow and then running them off the beds again. This has been happening off and on for the last six weeks. Monday I had a guide trip with Craig Herrick and his friend Andy and shing was tough. Youd never know it from the number of trucks and boat trailers in the parking lot at Windy Point, but in about eight hours of shing, we only had seven hits. The water temperature was around 65 degrees when we started and with plenty of sunshine and no wind, the water temp increased to 71 by 5:30 p.m. We caught a few sh but lost the best one of the day in the reeds close to quitting time. Tuesday I went out with Bill Jiedy, a hardcore sherman from Illinois who shed with me back in December with his sonin-law. The water had cooled overnight and was 68 degrees when we headed out in the morning around 9 a.m. The weather was even nicer than Monday with bright blue skies, light wind and plenty of sun. We spent the rst two or three hours ippin Istokpoga slow to warm up with fluctuating weather FISHIN AROUND...Don NortonSEE FISH | A11BOYS BASKETBALL STATE PLAYOFFS Dan Hoehne/News-SunThough the defensive effort was there from Alfred Brown and the Red Devils, there was just no stopping the Berkeley Prep offense Tuesday night.

It was the rst time he has publicly addressed the ndings in the Ted Wells report, which was released late last week. Wells looked into allegations that Martin had been bullied by teammate Richie Incognito and others. At the NFL combine in Indianapolis, Philbin immediately said he would look under every stone to change the culture inside Miamis locker room. He said he was not aware of the language or the nature of the bully ing when it happened and said he would have inter vened earlier if he had.Philbin promises better work environment in Miami M C Y K

Avon Park, meanwhile, did get three buckets from Alfred Brown, but managed just one other score and a free throw to leave them looking up at a 23-9 decit. The Devils got the offense going better in the second, with ve points from Tyrone Perry and four each from Gus Owens and Recarus Burley, helping post 15 points onto the board. But Berkeley werent letting up and added another 25 to their total to make it a 48-24 lead at the half. Brown would pick it up in the second half, scoring 10 of his teamhigh 16 points, but the Buccaneers were not about to let the Devils back into this one. A 21-point third pushed the lead to 69-37 and essentially sealed the deal. What you saw tonight was that they have basketball players, who can score from inside and outside the arc, head coach Marty OHora said. We have good athletes who play basketball. Were only losing one senior next year, so we will see who wants to become basketball players, he continued. But were making progress. We went 20-8 and went a round further than we did last year, so overall Id say were on the right track. HOOPS FROM PAGE A9 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Justin Tedder slides home ahead of the throw in the rst inning Wednesday night. Tedder went 4-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored in the Panthers 12-9 win.The Pioneers retook the lead with a run in the top of the fourth and added four more in the fth to go up 9-4. Again the Panthers began to claw their way back with Tedder working a bases-loaded walk and Austin Bingham lofting a sacrice y to make it 9-6 after ve. Then in the sixth, Chris Kazen took one for the team to lead things off and moved to second on a Damian Boyum single through the left side. The runners were moved into scoring position on an Austin Johnson bunt and then on a tapper back to the mound by Rodney Forbes, the pitcher threw toward the shortstop to try to nab Boyum. But the throw wasnt handled, Kazen came in and runners were on the corners. Tyler Bender beat out an ineld single to score Boyum and one out later, Tedder drove Forbes in with a base-knock to tie it 9-9. The seventh went by with neither team scor ing and Brad Burdett came on in relief early in the eighth and got out of a bases-loaded jam by getting a strike out and a elders choice grounder to second. Then in the bottom of the frame, the Panthers put it away. Johnson lead off the inning with a blast over the left-eld fence for a tiebreaking home run. Forbes then reached and stole second before moving to third on Deans bunt single. Flores tagged another sacrice y, bringing Forbes in, and Tedder laced another run-scor ing single to put South Florida up 12-9. Burdett then made it hold up by working around a one-out single in the ninth and striking out the nal two batters. The guys, as theyve been doing, just kept battling back, Hitt said afterward. Down big twice and they continued to work. Were continuing to play good baseball and now the wins are starting to come. They hope to continue the roll when they face Daytona State at home today at 2 p.m. and will take on Dundalk of Maryland in a doubleheader at 1 p.m. Satur day. SFSC FROM PAGE A9 reeds on the south end of the lake and again on the north end. After a couple of hours with no hits, we nally caught a couple of 2and 3-pounders but it was a very slow start. Water temps moved into the low 70s by midafternoon but it soon be came pretty clear the bass werent in the reeds. The beauty of Lake Istokpoga is there are plenty of alternatives to ippin the reeds. Back on Sunday, Feb. 9, my partner Nick DeSan ta and I caught some nice sh on the north end in the pads so we decided to give that a try. We were rewarded almost immediately with a nice 5-pounder loaded with eggs. From then until we quit around 5 oclock, we av eraged about one hit per hour. We were throwing black Zoom Trick Worms and although Bill tried a few other plastics, it seemed the sh would only hit the black baits. In the time we spent in that same area, we saw at least a half dozen big sh roll or blow up on baitsh, but we couldnt seem to get them to hit. Finally, around 4 p.m. I felt a solid tap as my bait hit the water and I could tell immediately that it was a big sh. I set the hook hard and I thought my rod would snap. It was like setting into a Mack truck! I looked over at Bill and offered him the rod and he said no, Im afraid Ill lose it and he reached for the net. Now Ive caught some big sh before but this one must have been on steroids because she immediately charged the boat, running under the boat alongside the electric motor and made a ferocious leap behind the boat. My G Loomis GLX spinning rod was bent over so far under the boat I was sure if she kept going it would snap like a straw. But it held on and for tunately, I began to gain back line as the bass turned and came back towards the boat. My fear was that she would get my line caught up in the electric motor but she came right back the way she went under and suddenly she was in the air again in front of the boat. What a ght! After what seemed a long time (probably less than a couple of minutes) I managed to bring her alongside the boat where Bill expertly slid the net under her and lifted her into the boat. A quick measurement and a couple of pictures and she was back in the water to give another sherman a thrill. Unlike many shermen, I worm sh with a spinning rod. Ive always believed I have more strength in my right arm and that my reexes are better. I sh everything else with a bait casting rod and reel. The G Loomis GLX worm rod is a very light rod and extremely sensitive and I have to admit, I was really impressed with its strength. But even more impres sive is the new line that Im using. Its called Nan-O-Fil. Its not mono and its not braid. Its something altogether different and I really like it. Unlike mono, it doesnt take a set and coil off your reel, and unlike braid, when its wet, it doesnt stick to your rod tip or guides. Unfortunately it only comes in 12-17 lb test. But Ive been using it quite a bit and I can tell you, unlike mono and braid that gets nicked and frayed after you catch a few bass, it looks like its never been used. Anyway, to get back to the sh, it was a real beauty. 26 inches in length and just over 11 pounds. Thats Lake Istokpoga shin at its best! Tomorrow I have a trip with two brothers, David and Daniel Lane. I called them tonight to set up our time to meet and give them a choice. I told them I could take them over to Lake Jackson and we could probably catch 20-25 bass up to a couple of pounds, or we could go to Lake Istokpoga and maybe get into a big sh. But I warned them that bites are few and far between. David insisted quality over quantity. Theyre looking for a wallhanger. Ill let you know.

LIVING BFriday, February 21, 2014 On Feb. 9, 1964, The Ed Sullivan Show increased its legendary status by leaps and bounds, with three guitars and a drum set. For an hour, beginning at 8 p.m. ET, Sullivan owned the tele vision stratosphere as a mindboggling 45.3 percent of U.S. households with televisions tuned in to see those four guys in their customary dark suits and ties. Lets take it a rock n roll beat further. An astound ing 60 percent of the nations households with televisions in use watched his New York-based show. Yes, CBS was living a dream scenario. On Feb. 7, 1964, Pan Ameri can Airlines Flight 101 with the inscription Beatles on its side panel landed at New Yorks newly named Kennedy International Airport. A musical tsunami was arriving in the form of The Bea tles Coming to America party. Has it been 50 years already since Paul McCartney (age 21 and the only left-hander), Ringo Starr (23), George Harrison (20) and John Lennon (23 and mar ried with child) left Londons Heathrow Airport for a red, white and blue rst-time hello? Jackie DeShannon was among several artists, including the Righteous Brothers, performing as warm-up acts for The Beatles North American Tour in She vividly remembers their sense of humility. They were great, said De Shannon, now 72, during a telephone conversation from her Los Angeles home. They were not stuffy. They were very nice to everybody. They werent standofsh. They were lots of fun. And their wit they had a very wicked sense of humor. You could go to any coun try in the world and people could sing along with Beatles songs. They were a once in a lifetime group; the only person who comes close is Elvis Presley. They had God-given talent and they worked hard, so they earned their stripes. Those stripes resulted in the unprecedented top ve spots on the Billboard Hot 100 song chart in 1964: No. 1, Cant Buy Me Love; No. 2, Twist and Shout; No. 3, She Loves You; No. 4, I Want to Hold Your Hand; No. 5, Please Please Me. The Beatles got the party started with their rst news conference on U.S. soil, held at Kennedy Airport. The occasion was part welcome mat and part hilarity. When one media member asked how much money the band expected to make in the United States, drummer Ringo Starr calmly responded, Ten dollars. With that, the British In vasion had been launched. It was a veritable orgy of jostling crowds, teenage screams, law-enforcement ofcers and a most curious media. Amid the high-decibel hoopla, the United States needed The Beatles unquestionably. The country was mired in a perpetual state of mourning a nation of grief and disbelief. When the Beatles rst arrived in New York, it had only been 77 days since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. His successor, Lyndon Johnson, had delivered his rst State of the Union address only 29 days be fore their arrival, espousing the virtues of JFKs ideals. John Kennedy was a victim of hate, Johnson said, but he was also a great builder of faith faith in our fellow Americans, whatever their creed or their color or their station in life; faith in the future of man, whatever his divi sions and differences. Then the Beatles made a difference; they brought the buzz; they gave Americans reason to cheer and applaud again; they also supported the transformative U.S. civil rights movement of the 1960s, refusing to perform before segregated audiences in the South. In 64, Bert Shipp was a television news correspondent-camera man for WFAA in Dallas. When the Beatles arrived there for a concert at Memorial Auditorium on Sept. 18, 1964, he utilized his knack for stealth to sneak into the Fab Fours dressing room for a rare one-on-four private interview. The Beatles were good for the country, said Shipp, now 84, via telephone. Their songs were popular; they were such a spirited group. A healthy atmosphere followed them everywhere they went. Simply, The Beatles were iconic game-changers. Their rst appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show garnered 73 million viewers; the nations popu lation in 1964 was about 190 million. That means approximately four out of every 10 Americans were watching. Simply put, those stats can only be explained in Super Bowl terms. To put the viewership total for the Beatles appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show in per spective, said Neil Best, sports media-sports business columnist for Newsday in New York, it wasnt until 1978 that the Super Bowl surpassed that gure for average viewership attract ing 78.9 million viewers for the Cowboys victory over the Broncos. By that point, the estimated United States population had grown to about 221 million. On Feb. 11, 1964, the Beatles performed their rst U.S. con cert, at the Washington Coliseum in the nations capital during their winter tour. Ironically, on that same snowy day, the mother of Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who assassinated Kennedy, was entrenched in her second day of testifying a few blocks away on Capitol Hill before the Warren Commission, charged with investigating the murder. Concert ticket prices were an affordable $2 to $4. It was a sell out with 8,092 fans, including a wide-eyed 16-year-old who lat er became vice president of the United States Al Gore. We all loved their music, Gore told The Washington Post, but clearly there were a lot of people in that crowd who loved it even more than I did because they couldnt stop screaming. Im thrilled that iTunes now has the lm of that concert, because Ill get to hear the words clearly for the rst time. The screaming shrills by most ly female fans induced several Washington police ofcers rep resenting the huge law-enforcement presence to stuff their ears with bullets to cushion the sonic boom. Afterward, the Beatles again performed on The Ed Sullivan Show in Miami, where they found a new friend in Cassius Clay (now Muhammad Ali), who was there training for his Ishook-up-the-world ght with heavyweight boxing champion Sonny Liston. Following a return to Britain for their United Kingdom spring tour, the Beatles were back in North America for an extensive summer tour 24 cities in 32 days with each perfor mance lasting approximately 30 minutes. The rst stop was the Cow Pal ace in Daly City, Calif., on Aug. 19, 1964. The audience was screaming, We want the Beatles; We want the Beatles. It was great exposure for us, recalled DeShannon, whose signature song was What the World Needs Now Is Love. The warm-up groups and the Beatles sometimes would engage in jam sessions on plane trips, DeShannon recalled. And they had a pillow ght, too. Before the Beatles headed south to play at the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville on Sept. 11, they wanted assurances of desegre gation in crowd seating. John Lennon, at the time, added major clarity on the Beatles stance: We never play to segregated audiences and we arent going to start now. Id sooner lose our appearance money. Message understood. And they ultimately played on in the Sunshine State. After their earlier winter tour, the Feb. 24 edition of Newsweek magazine published a cover story titled, Bugs About Beatles. Its premise was harsh in tone: Visually they are a nightmare: tight, dandied, EdwardianBeatnik suits and great pudding bowls of hair. Musically they are a near-disaster: guitars and drums slamming out a merciless beat that does away with secondary rhythms, harmony, and melody. Their lyrics (punctuated by nutty shouts of yeah, yeah, yeah!) are a catastrophe, a preposterous far rago of Valentine-card romantic sentiments. The conclusion: And so the odds are that they will fade away, as most adults condently predict. Now, approximately 1.6 billion records sold ... and counting ... numbers never lie.

B2 DAIL Y COMMERCIAL Friday February 21, 2014 B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, February 21, 2014 www.newssun.com PUZZLE CORNER Solution on B5 JE SSIC A HERND ONAP Film WriterThere have been many stage and screen adaptations of Therese Raquin, Emile Zolas 1867 novel about love and betrayal. Perhaps most notable was lmmaker Marcel Carnes 1953 version, The Adultress, starring Simone Signoret and Raf Vallone. It was a classic slice of lm noir; a feverish take on a sordid love affair. In Secret is the latest rendering of Zolas bleak story. Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaacs, Tom Felton and Jessica Lange offer compelling performances in a provocative remake thats stirring until its withered end. Set in 1860s France, Therese (played seductively by Olsen) is sent to live with her aunt, Madame Raquin (Lange), an entitled and needy dame who forces her niece to marry her sickly son, Camille (played delicately and artfully by Felton). When Camille gets a job as a clerk in Paris, the three move from the country to the bustling city, where Madame Raquin opens a fabric shop. Resigned to an uninspired life working in her aunts store, Therese, whos become increasingly lascivi ous, is even welcoming the idea of sex with her effeminate cousin to satisfy her desires. When she meets Laurent (Issacs), Camilles childhood friend, the two begin an erotic affair. Olsen and Isaacs are extremely effective to gether and their lust-ridden scenes and there are plenty only intensify. As Therese and Laurent continue to sneak around, their devotion deepens. Uninhibited and raw, Isaacs is at his sexiest. In his rst lead role since starring in the Coen brothers Oscar-nominated Inside Llewyn Davis, he offers another authentic performance and we see his talents swell in many directions. As Llewyn, Isaacs had one consistent tone: gloomy. Here, he easily shifts from charming and arousing to dark and devious while seducing Therese and leading her down a murderous path. To be together freely, Laurent de vises a plan to kill Camille and make it look like an accident. Therese agrees to be an accomplice and the deed is done. With her cousin dead, Therese is faced with increasing guilt and begins to lash out, including a tirade against Laurent on their wedding night. The couple then begins to unravel emotionally and physically. Its here that Madame Raquin starts to gain heavy sympathy. Lange plays a grieving mother, going from agonized to helpless, so poignantly that your heart breaks for her. At this point, the story becomes utterly unrelenting. Shirley Henderson, as Suzanne, a part of Madame Raquins social bunch, serves as the only steady comic relief. She is a constant snoop who is easily ustered, especially when the conversation turns to detailing the atmosphere inside a morgue. Unfortunately, the nal act of the lm seems to drag on. Therese and Laurent are caught in a tedious state of misery. While Zolas prose keeps us engaged in her couples steady spiral downward, the lms conclu sion could have come much sooner. In Secret, a Roadside Attractions release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for sexual content and brief violent images. Running time: 107 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four.Follow Jessica Herndon on Twitter at: https://twitter.com/SomeKindIn Secret is a provocative, but taxing, tale of betrayal Phil Bray/MCTJessica Lange and Tom Felton star in Charlie Strattons In Secret.MOVIE REVIEW CRI TICS RA TING: Dear Abby: I have been married to a wonderful man for 17 years and we have two children. My life should be perfect, and it is until its time to visit my in-laws. We dont see them more than a few times a year, but Ive taken to plead ing work as an excuse not to see them on holidays or special occasions if I can avoid it. I have even spent Christmas at home alone because I cant stand how verbally abusive my inlaws are. My mother-in-law ad mits to being mean and nasty. She says she doesnt care because she hates people. They are now pressuring my husband to move nearer to them. The thought makes me sick. My life could have been so different if these rela tives were nice, normal people. I wanted us to be friends. Im a kind per son, but I have never been good enough for them. How can I make their verbal abuse stop? Im sick of being the brunt of jokes and sarcastic comments. Outlaw in Arizona Dear Outlaw: If your husband is wonder ful, why has he tolerated his parents treating you this way for 17 years? He should have insisted from the beginning of your marriage that you be treated with respect. You cant make your in-laws stop their ver bal abuse, but your husband might be able to if he locates his spine and puts his foot down. There should be no more talk of moving close to these tox ic people, nor should there be any more visits to them until they either change their attitudes or learn to watch their mouths. Dear Abby: My husband is an alcoholic who attends AA meetings. Last night he forgot to sign out of his email and I saw he has been corresponding with a woman he met at the meetings. In her mes sage she conded her problems nding a man. His reply was that she has been picking the wrong men, that he cares and that they need to talk faceto-face. I wish I had never seen the email. Because of it, I cant eat or sleep, worrying about what might possibly be going on. I dont want to confront him because he has a nasty temper, yet I feel I must do something. But what? Lost in Nowhere, Montana Dear Lost: Instead of confronting your hus band, simply ask him if he has become this womans AA sponsor. It might explain why she is conding in him, and why he suggested they meet face-toface to talk, which could be entirely innocent. Does he have a history of cheating on you? If something is going on, it would be better for your emotional health to know what you are deal ing with. And if your husband responds with verbal or physical abuse because of his nasty temper, you should insist on marriage counseling or get out of there for your own safety.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips.

Friday, February 21, 2014 DAIL Y COMMERCIAL B3 www.newssun.comFriday, February 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 HEALTHY LIVING Dear Pharmacist: What are popular medications, and their natural counter parts? A.T., Dallas Answer: This is a great question, and theres a lot of different things that come to mind. For exam ple, when I think of popular medications, I think of allergy drugs (antihistamines), pain relievers, antacids, blood pressure drugs, cholesterol reduc ers and sleeping pills. That covers a lot of ground. Ill give you some op tions, but these natural choices do not work as strong as a drug, and Im not recommending you stop your drugs and take these either. This sort of decision is between you and your doctor. With that said, here are some interesting ideas. Allergy drugs (antihis tamines) Quercetin, a supplement that occurs naturally in fruits and vegetables, is a powerful mast cell stabilizer, which means that it helps reduce histamine in the body. Think of it as a natural ver sion of loratadine, a popular effective drug used to treat allergies. As a benet, quercetin may help with other things like stressinduced anxiety, asthma and inammatory pain syndromes. Pain relievers Willow bark and California poppy are two herbal remedies used to relieve pain by ho listic physicians. There are drug interactions and side effects to herbs too, but these two herbs offer effects like natural aspirin and natural (weak) opiate drugs (respectively). Antacids Slippery elm, marshmallow root, digestive enzymes, DGL and probiotics are my go-to supplements here. Its not that they direct ly reduce acid (they dont), but they help reduce gut inammation and other problems that could trigger the burn. There is also the possibility you need more acid (betaine with pepsin supplements) to digest your food. Blood pressure drugs Grape seed extract can help reduce systolic blood pressure (the top number). Potassium citrate found in foods and supplements can do so too. Be careful though, not everyone can take potassium; it has in teractions. Magnesium is a strong anti-hypertensive too. Youll want to eat more basil, and perhaps garlic. I recommend eating gar lic, or taking aged garlic supplements. Cholesterol reducers I think of natural statins here Red Yeast Rice or vitamin C, particularly liposomal C. Coenzyme Q10 can help as can a cup of Tulsi tea each day. Sleeping pills This category is perhaps the hardest. As humans, we sleep thanks to melato nin and GABA. To get this pathway running, you have to go slowly and care fully, under supervision. Supplements of 5-HTP turn into serotonin, then melatonin (provided you have good B vitamin status), but I suggest low doses. Special phenylat ed GABA supplements may help, like Kavinace sold online. Lemonbalm, hops and passionower are other natural relaxation herbs to discuss with your doctor. In summary, there are many choices you can consider, Ive only touched the surface. I love natural options, and your safety comes rst. While natural, and expected to be safer than pharmaceuticals, botanicals may cause similar interactions, aller gies and setbacks. Always discuss changes to your health regimen with your doctor because we are all individual.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24Hour Pharmacist and Real Solu tions.

www.newssun.comFriday, February 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B5 RELIGION Ladies group plans new study groupSEBRING A group of interdenominational ladies (year-round and snowbirds) has just nished doing a Senior Adult Bible Studies for Life (by LifeWay). The group is now looking to start the Spring 2014. The two study themes in the study are Productive: Finding Joy in What We Do and Let Hope In. The rst six weeks are in the Productive section. Many people work too much, fueled by a work aholic drive; some barely make an effort, doing the bare minimum just so that they can pay the bills and keep the house from falling apart. Both groups need balance. Many earn more than we personally need and ll their lives with the ex periences and stuff money affords; others of struggle to get by. Both groups need balance. And many play as hard as they work; they also need balance. This study lifts up the biblical mandates to both work and rest, and it points to the way to achieve balance. The focus on generous giving will also help achieve balance. For information call the church at 385-7848 or 414-3260. The study will be at 1 p.m. Fridays, starting March 7. The rst lesson is titled Good Work. The passage comes from Genesis 1:28, 2:8-9, 15-17. The point: Work is a gift from God, not a curse.Gods Bible School and College Choir to perform at Holiness CampAVON PARK Gods Bible School and College Choir will present a concert at the Florida Heartland GBS Choir Rally at the Avon Park Holiness Camp on Monday, February 24th at 7 pm.

SNAPSHOTS LO CAL RE L IGIONA preacher once presented a powerful lesson on the differences between Heaven and Hell. He talked about the beautiful images that the Bible gives of Heaven and the terrible descriptions it provides of Hell. He went on to talk about how every one should do their best to live their lives according to Gods plan so that each might nd a home in Heaven. As is sometimes the case, this particular congregation had a Sunday morning regular (This is the person who goes to sleep every Sunday morning like clockwork during the sermon.). It just so happened that this fellow was sitting on the front row. Toward the end of the lesson, the preacher made a forceful point about how sinful living would lead to an eternity in Hell. He was so excited about the message he was deliv ering and the absurdity of anyone choosing to go to Hell that at an emotional high point of the sermon, he shouted the question, If anyone present today chooses to go to Hell, then let him stand up right now! Well, all that poor fel low on the front row heard was, Stand up right now! So, he stood up right then and there. As he looked around, he noticed that except for the preacher behind the podium, he was the only one standing! Un sure as to what had just happened and trying to compose himself, the man turned to the front and said, Preacher, I dont know what we just voted on, but it looks like you and I are the only ones for it! I frequently ask chil dren how we talk to God, and they correctly answer, Prayer. I then ask them how God talks to us, and again, they cor rectly respond, The Bible. The rest of us, however, sometimes forget this basic point when it comes to our communication with God. We are more than happy to talk to Him through prayer when we feel we need to, but how often do we stop to listen to what He is trying to tell us through His word. Of ten, we behave just like the Sunday morning regular. Either we drift in and out of the Bible periodically or we sleep right through Gods entire message for us. 2 Timothy 3:16 and 17 reads, All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. If God speaks to us through scripture, and all scripture is useful to us, then should not each of us be listening to God as closely as we can through the daily study of His word? May be it is time for each of us to wake up, pay attention, and listen closely to what God has to say.Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Se bring Parkway.

KEVINS KOMMENTSKevin Patterson PHILADELPHIA (AP) A Philadelphia couple who believe in faith-healing have been sentenced to 3 to seven years in prison in the death of a second child who died without seeing a doctor. Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Benjamin Lerner told Herbert and Catherine Schaible on Wednesday that it wasnt 8-month-old Brandons time to die. He said: Youve killed two of your children ... not God, not your church, not religious devotion you. The Schaibles pleaded no contest. They are thirdgeneration members of a small Pentacostal com munity, the First Century Gospel Church in northeast Philadelphia. Both expressed remorse and apologized for violating a court order to seek medical care for their children following the 2009 death of a 2-year-old son of untreated pneumonia. Their six surviving minor children are now in foster care. We believe in divine healing, that Jesus shed blood for our healing and that he died on the cross to break the devils pow er, Herbert Schaible said in a 2013 police statement. Medicine, he said, is against our religious beliefs. A jury had convicted both parents of involuntary manslaughter in Kents death, and they were put on 10 years of probation that included orders to seek medical care if any other child got sick. After Brandons death, an irate judge found they had violated parole. Prosecutors have de scribed the boys symptoms as eerily similar, and said they included labored breathing and a refusal to eat. Catherine Schaibles lawyer, though, said her client tried to feed Brandon during his illness and applied baby powder to keep him comfortable. Their pastor, Nel son Clark, has said the Schaibles lost their sons because of a spiritual lack in their lives and insisted they would not seek medical care even if another child appeared near death.Pope talks poverty, eyes finance branch overhaul VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Francis penned a new missive on the injustices of poverty Wednesday amid indications he is eyeing a major over haul of the Vaticans nancial house by creating a nance ministry to better serve the church. Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, a key adviser in Francis Group of Eight cardinal cabinet, told the French Catholic newspaper La Croix that creating a nance secretariat was needed to better organize the diverse nancial departments. He said a cardinal would probably head it, assisted by a permanent advisory body of lay experts. The development came as Francis and his G8 cardinals ended three days of meetings to hear proposals for reform by experts who have been studying the Vaticans nancial institutions. Based on the experts reports, the G8 cardinals made their own nancial reform recommendations to Francis, but no decisions were immediately announced .Parents sent to prison in Pennsylvania for second prayer death of child M C Y K

Future studies will com pare the various teachings of religions under the umbrella of Christendom and the Bible. But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the rstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. (1 Corinthians 15:20) Observe the array of witnesses listed in verses 5-8. It is interesting to note the writing of Muhammad some 600 years after the resurrection: And because of their say ing: We slew the Messiah Jesus son of Mary, Allahs messenger-They slew him not nor crucied, but it appeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt thereof; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him not for certain. (Quran, Surah IV, 157) Contrast this to Jesus own statement in Matthew 20:18,19 and the apostles in Acts 2 regard ing the death and resur rection of the Messiah. Ahmed Deedat, a Muslin writer, stated: Let me give you a quick summary of the points we have discussed so far, concluding that Jesus Christ was neither killed nor was he crucied, as alleged by the Christians and the Jews, but he was ALIVE! (Crucixion or Cruciction, page 78, written in l984). Then he lists 30 points in an ef fort to verify his claim that Jesus was not crucied/died. This effort is hypocritical because the uses a book (Bible) that he does not accept as authority in an effort to prove his points. Ob serve point No. 9, Ency clopedia Biblica under article Cross. Column 960 says that when the spear was thrust Jesus was alive. Contrast this to an eyewitness account in John 19:33-35. Yahi ya Emerick stated, So in their anger they plotted to crucify him on a Roman cross. But Jesus slipped from their grip at the last moment, and all the while they thought they had succeeded. They were sure they had killed him, but God an swered Jesus prayer and saved him from their schemes. Confusion overtook the mob and they might have killed the man who betrayed Jesus instead. In any case, Jesus escaped from their grasp. (Who Was Jesus?... published by Is lamic Circle of North America) Once again, it is refreshing and uplifting to read in the four gospel accounts of eyewitness of the death and burial and resurrected Lamb of God. The Twelve stood boldly on Pentecost in Jerusalem and declared the resurrection of Je sus: Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attest ed by God to you by mir acles, wonders and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves knowHim, being delivered by the determined council and foreknowledge of God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucied, and put to death; whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death because it was not possible that He should be held by it (Acts 2:22-24). This was within 50 days of Jesus death and resurrection and these claims were not refuted. In fact, some 3,000 souls (verses 3641) were convicted of the Truth proclaimed. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who accord ing to His abundant mer cy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead (First Peter 1:3). This event changed dejection, disillusion, hopelessness and despair into a burn ing zeal that knew no bounds! They spread the teachings of the Christ throughout the world with rapidity unequaled in history. If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men the most pitiable (First Corinthians 15:19).Frank Parker can be contacted at frankparker27@gmail.com/.
