At approximately 6:30 p.m. March 28, 2012, Foxs GMC Envoy SUV swerved out of control while southbound on U.S. 27, crossed a curbed median near Alan Jay Automotive Headquarters, hit a raised concrete drain, went airborne and landed on top of a northbound Ford Focus. Peggy Sue Roaf, 52, of Sebring was killed instantly by the impact, accident investigation reports said. He pleaded no contest to vehicular homicide on Monday, March 31, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison, ve years probation and a lifetime drivers license suspension, said Assistant State Attorney Richard Castillo. Castillo expressed cynicism as to whether a lifetime suspension would keep Fox off the road. He didnt have a (valid) drivers license the day of the wreck, Castillo said. The State Attorneys Ofce opted to try Fox on only the vehicular homicide charge. There was an additional charge of driving on a suspended license resulting in death, but that charge would have been double jeopardy and Driver takes plea deal in fatal wreckSentenced to 10 years in prison Christopher Tuf ey/News-Sun le photoNicholas Steven Fox will serve 10 years in prison after pleading no contest to vehicular homicide for this rash on U.S. 27 on March 28, 2012, that killed Peggy Sue Roaf, 52, of Sebring. BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterLAKE PLACID Deputies went out to investigate a 911 call a week ago about a man with head injury lying on the ground. The man was rushed to the hospital, but died. Now deputies want to know who fatally injured him and how. Highlands County Sheriffs deputies found the man at approximately 11 p.m. March 28. He was badly injured and lying on a dirt trail behind Lupita Grocery in Lake Placid. The victim, whose identity has not been released by investigators, was airlifted to Lee Memorial Hospital, where he later died from his injuries. Nell Hays, public information of cer for the Sheriffs Of ce, said the man was a migrant worker from Mexico, and deputies want to be certain family has been noti ed of his death before his name is published.Deputies seeking info on homicide BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING As local citrus growers await the latest numbers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, they say fruit drop continues to be a problem this harvesting season, saying it could be as high as 20-25 percent of this years crop. I think it is a serious problem in some blocks but some blocks are faring better than others, said Highlands County Citrus Growers Association Executive Director Ray Royce. It doesnt appear to be as bad across the board as it was a year ago. Determining why its happening is another matter altogether. Although the citrus greening disease has been an increasing concern, Royce said there is a variety of other factors. Greening certainly gets most of the blame, but I think growers are wondering if it might actually be a combination of things, he said. Royce explained the presence of greening exacerbates any stress on the trees. Stress factors include such things as the levels of water, herbicides and other chemicals, and weather factors. For instance, we had Fruit drop not as bad as last yearStill expected to be at least 20-25 percent of crop BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING It started with a conference and an idea: Have teachers show teachers how to improve their teaching. It has grown into a local movement that, at a national conference in February, had educators from Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City asking to talk with the people from Highlands County to learn how they can collaborate within their school districts to improve teaching skills. Its called Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers, or ECET2.

David Lozano Jr., 22, of 1322 Citrus Drive in Se-bring, has been charged with possession of a weapon or ammunition by a felon, grand theft of a rearm, two counts of possession of a con-trolled substance with-out a prescription, pos-session of marijuana with intent to sell or de-liver, possession of drug paraphernalia and pos-session of methamphet-amine, either 14 or more grams or trafcking. Lozano was found guilty of robbery with a rearm on Feb. 8, 2007, and found guilty of pos-session of a rearm by a convicted felon on Feb. 13, 2010, reports said. Under Florida law, he is not allowed to own a rearm, ammunition, il-legal drugs or drug para-phernalia. Highlands County Sheriffs deputies served a search warrant on Lo-zanos house at 9:01 a.m. Thursday and found: A Lorcin 9mm semiautomatic handgun with chrome-color n-ish and black grips. A Jennings .22-cali-ber J22 semi-automat-ic handgun with black nish, conrmed to be stolen. Three rounds of .40-caliber ammuni-tion. Nine rounds of 9mm ammunition. Forty-one rounds of .22-caliber ammuni-tion. One Vibertrek stun weapon, colored pink. Approximately 306 grams of a green leafy substance that eldtested positive for can-nabis. Approximately 24 grams of a hard crys-tallized substance that eld-tested posi-tive for methamphet-amine. Two Xanax pills. Several plastic baggies, scales and spoons with residue and smoking devices. Reports said one of the guns had a round in the chamber and four rounds in the magazine. Reports also said that the baggies were near the cannabis near an electronic scale, such as would be used for pack-aging. Lozano was ques-tioned by deputies and made a statement, but that statement was re-dacted from reports.Convicted felon found with weapons, drugs BY PHIL A TTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING Jim Wil-liams Terry, 53, of Jim Terry Pools is already facing charges of fraud and grand theft from a Lorida customer, but he has two other cases lev-ied against him, too. Those cases involve pools not installed or not completed at two Se-bring homes. In all cases, charges were led and Terry arrested on Tues-day. Names of victims, although available in re-ports, are not being used to protect their privacy. According to one ar-rest report from the Highlands County Sher-iffs Ofce, a customer contracted Terry in June 2013 and handed him a check to start work at a home on U.S. 98 in Se-bring. On Oct. 1, 2013, con-crete was poured for the pool. The customer, at Terrys request, issued a check to him for con-crete to pour the inner walls of the pool and the pool patio. This $3,500 check was only meant to be is-sued after the concrete work was done, reports said, but the check was cashed and the concrete never ordered or poured. On Oct. 22, the cus-tomer received a notice to owner from Jahna Concrete that Terry had not paid for the concrete. At the other home on Jackson Heights Drive, the homeowner had contracted Terry last year to install a pool heater with accessories on an existing pool. He paid Terry $3,594.13 for the work, including parts and labor, on Nov. 11, 2013, arrest reports said. Reports said the check was cashed the next day, and after sever-al attempts to get the work done, the custom-er was told many differ-ent excuses for why Ter-ry couldnt get the work done. An existing case in-volves a contract on Nov. 5, 2013, to install a pool on Sunnyside Drive in Lorida. The customer had written Terry a check, but no work was done until three weeks later on Nov. 27, when Terry had the pool dug. While there, he asked for an additional $4,632, which according to con-tract, wasnt supposed to be done until steel work was complete. Steel work didnt start until two days later and was never nished, reports said.Pool contractor facing more fraud, theft charges

BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING Highlands County has a new Citizen of the Year. Highlands County Commissioner Don Elwell was given the honor Thursday morning at the Highlands County United Ways annual breakfast and awards ceremony held at the Jack Stroup Civic Center in Sebring. Elwell is known both for his work at the commission and throughout county government as well as with local groups ranging from the Highlands Art League, to the Salvation Army to Heartland Idol. He seems to be involved in every aspect of Highlands County, said Sebring Mayor John Shoop, himself a former Citizen of the Year. Whether it is government related, volunteering on multiple boards or entertaining crowds with his humor and exceptional skills as an emcee. The commissioner called the honor tremendously humbling and said the award came as a complete surprise. I knew something was up, but I had no idea it was for the Citizen of the Year, Elwell said. Id ruled that out. When you look at the names on the list it really is like a Whos Who of founders in the community. Elwell said he realized they were talking about him during the presentation when they mentioned his emcee activities. Highlands County Area Director for United Way of Central Florida Kristin Handley said the Citizen of the Year selection comes through a committee process. We have a roundtable that sits down once a year and goes over the nominations and then we make our selection, she said. It is not a complicated process. Among the criteria used are candidates activities, achievements in the community and their impact on the local United Way efforts. Elwell serves as the United Way Employee Coordinator for the Alan Jay Automotive Network, where he is the director of marketing and public relations. Hes my lead person there, he leads the campaign, gets everything organized and takes care of things, Handley said. In fact, Alan Jay has always been in the top 10 of donators as long as they have been participating with us. Although the Citizen of the Year honor has been given out for some time, Handley said the Highlands County award dates back to 2003. It used to be for the entire tri-county region Polk, Hardee and Highlands because thats our United Way of Central Florida, she said. But then we started having one just for Highlands. The next United Way event will be the annual Day of Caring May 21. Volunteer teams from businesses and organizations will go out an help various United Way clients and partners with everything from landscaping to painting and even clerical work.Elwell named Citizen of the Year by United Way ELWELL BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING Boy Scout Troop 846 of Sebring got the chance to get up close and personal with up-and-coming Skip Barber racer Brandon Angel Saturday at the Sebring International Raceway. Angel, a 21-year-old Ocala resident, earned his Eagle Scout rank in 2009 and uses his Boy Scout experience to help bring the younger scouts into the world of racing. I started Scouts at the age of 13 when we moved back to the U.S. from the Philippines, said Angel. Scouts has been a big part of my life, just as racing has. Though Angel only became a professional racer one year ago, the Troop 172 member has been racing go-carts since the age of 8 and has remained active in the Eagle Scouts since 2005. Throughout the morning and afternoon, young Scouts participated in a number of activities related to the Skip Barber school, including driving simulators, ride-alongs and even waving the ags for the races. Wade Allison was plenty excited about his opportunity to be a part of a real race Saturday. I got to wave the checkered ag. It was really cool, said Allison. Ive never even been out to the race track before; this is my rst time here. The coolest part about it was when the cars would go by it vibrated the crows nest. It was really loud out there, too. A second scout, Max Carlisle, waved the ag at the 11:25 a.m. race. Three scouts were lucky enough to ride along in the Skip Barber pace car that signaled the start of the race. Matthew Andrews, Noah Allison and Julian Crozier hoped into the Mazda pace car just before the start of the second race and enjoyed their ride. This is something we are hoping and trying to adopt at each race we go to, said Angel. This is the rst time theyve allowed Boy Scouts out here to participate in anything like this. Angels father, Walter, said that Sebring is the test run. We wanted tot start here to see if it would work. We are working with the National Eagle Scouts Association to see if we can take it to future races and adopt a local troop at each race, Walter Angel said. Angels next stop is a F1600 Series race in Road Atlanta April 1113, where he is hoping to bring out another troop.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.Local Boys Scouts get taste of racing life Katara Simmons/News-SunBoy Scout Ronald McMahon drives a race car simulator Saturday at the Sebring International Raceway.

BUSINESS BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING For more than 30 years, the Prescott family has provided quality lawn and pest control services to the residents and businesses of Highlands County through their anchor business, Prescott Lawn and Pest Control Inc. Last spring however, the Prescotts felt another avenue was worthy of being part of the familys legacy and opened The Front Porch at Prescotts on June 1, 2013, exactly 31 years to the day after the Prescotts lawn and pest control company. The Front Porch stems from everything my mom loves; holidays, pots, yard decor, said Kelly Prescott Dressel (wife of NewsSun editor Scott Dressel). This is an extension of everything she loves. After acquiring their new building space on Alternate 27 behind the Sebring Southgate Publix shopping plaza, Kelly, her mom Debbie Prescott and brother Jady Prescott knew that their business has found its new home. When the building became available we just couldnt pass it up. We moved Prescott here two years ago and Front Porch came not long after that, Dressel said. The business employs six individuals, including the three family members. Jack Prescott, who started the business with Debbie, remains a huge part of the business even after his unexpected death in 2007. The red and yellow in our logo symbolizes my mom and dad, said Kelly. This is and always will be a family business. When the Front Porch came around last June, the family knew that the opportunity to add retail to their company would be a great asset and began working on putting the store together. Weve been doing well, said Debbie. Retail is different for us and we are still learning things every day. But this is an extension of Prescott, thats why we added it. Yard decor, collegiate items, wall art and colorful handmade items ll the space at the Front Porch, giving customers plenty to choose from. People are always surprised when they come in at all the things we have, Kelly said. One of the popular items is Debbie Prescotts handmade door wreaths, which are available for every season. People love Christmas wreaths, but when Christmas is over they still want to use them. I started making them for every holiday so people can hang them year round, she said. She takes special orders for any holiday or seasonal wreath for her customers. Other popular items include the solar-powered yard decor items and Tervis brand cups in every pattern from owls to Florida Gators. Those are a big hit, said Kelly. We carry a special type of Tervis, every store does. Tervis only allows certain stores to carry certain cups and patterns, that way each store has something different. We keep everything in the store that people would want. We try to have appropriate stock for any size yard or patio. Whether you have a small green space or a large yard, theres something for you here, Debbie Prescott said. The Front Porch at Prescotts is at 2719 Alt 27 South (CR 17 South) behind South Publix.

Of cials at the Sebring Regional Airport say they are delighted following the formal announcement that the Italianbased Tecnam Aircraft has established a U.S. customer service center and will operated from the industrial park there. Tecnam joins E-stone as the second Italian company to be established at the Sebring airport. Reportedly, the effort to land the rm began as many as ve years ago by the Highlands County Industrial Development Authority/ Economic Development Commission under thenExecutive Director Dan Murphy. The Tecnam facility is designed to cover the U.S., Central and South America and Canada for parts supply, sales and marketing. It eventually will provide the company with a base for nal assembly of aircraft for sales in those markets. We are working to be more proactive by making this investment in production, training, customer service and parts supply in the U.S., said Shannon Yeager, director of sales for Tecnam U.S. We plan to have maintenance training at the Sebring facility, as well. The Tecnam US Inc. Sebring customer delivery center, assembly facility and U.S. headquarters has been established in a 43,000-square-foot facility at the airport. Formerly used by the Leza Lockwood Corporation, it more recently was used by Sebring Aviation. Plans are to use about 21,000 square feet in the rst phase of operation. Tecnam is no stranger to the Sebring airport, having participated in the US Sport Aviation Expo for several years. This past January, company executives said they made a number of sales including a pair of their popular P2008 TC aircraft the 115-horsepower, turbocharged version of the P2008 LSA, featuring the Rotax 914. Tecnam had a strong showing at the Expo this year, with four aircraft on display, daily seminars showcasing the history of Tecnam in the world of aviation, as well as several manufacturers showcase ights showing off the ying capabilities of the Tecnam models. We are proud to be the home of the annual US Sport Aviation Expo and our motto the place to see, try, y and buy really does ring true, with Tecnam choosing Sebring as their showcase facility in North America, said Sebring Regional Airport Director Mike Willingham. Company of cials indicated the establishment of Tecnam US Inc. is a result of a signi cant investment that will include not only the new Sebring facility and personnel but will create an enhanced nationwide sales and support network offering a wide range of services.Tecnam Aircraft opens Sebring airport facility BY ROD LEWISNews-Sun CorrespondentLAKE PLACID Representatives from the Southern Florida District of Church of Nazarene, county and local of cials converged on the Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center Wednesday for the of cial groundbreaking of Grace Place and a new addition to the dining center. Grace Place is a 152bed dormitory that will be able to be divided into small pods for small groups, or a 152bed dorm, said Anthony Haney, Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center executive director. Haney went on to say that there are going to be two wings on the building, each one making up a 300-seat, multi-purpose auditorium. The original dream may have started in 1926, when Melville Dewey and his wife built the southern version of the Lake Placid Club, said Dr. Dennis Moore, Southern Florida District Advisory Board secretary. The club was to attract the brightest and best young people to advance new ideas and that would impact people. Moore went on to say that in the year just ending, revenue for the center approached $1.9 million, with 43,000 guests. Out of the 43,000, he said, more than 4,000 young people found Jesus Christ as their savior, which he related back to Melville Deweys dream. Grace Place was a result of a grant from Dr. Fred Bertolet and his wife, Grace, who led revivals all over the America. Shortly before his death, Bertolet bequeathed nearly $1 million to the Southern Florida District with the simple wish that an appropriate building be build to honor his late wife. The added dormitory space will augment the mission of the Center. The mission statement was to establish a base of godliness, Haney said. The vision statement that came of that was serving Jesus Christ by serving others. This summer, there will be approximately 40,000 visitors to the Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center. There will be about 8,000-9,000 youth and children for summer camps. Not only is the camp open for the campers, the facility is open to the public. Corporate events are available as are lunches and catering on and off campus. Haney estimates that the visitors will infuse approximately $3 million in revenue throughout Highlands County. There was also a groundbreaking ceremony for a dining area patio that will seat 200-250. The addition will blend in with the existing building, and will look like it has always been there. Haney estimated that this project will not begin until the fall because of the number of visitors that are expected during the summer.Grace Place continues Deweys dream in LPNew facility at Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center Rod Lewis/News-SunThe rst shovel breaks the ground for the coming Grace Place Dormitory at Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center on Wednesday.

A6 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, April 6, 2014 www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEWIt is possible future historians will look back at our time and call it the Irratio-nal Age. Take the example the U. S. Supreme Court just set deciding in a 5-4 vote that it is unconstitutional to limit the number of candidates to whom a dona-tion may be given by an interested par-ty. The dollar limits per donation remain the same, but now donors may give to as many different candidates across the country as they choose, making it easier to spread money around. In addition, the Supreme Court has al-ready decided that corporations are peo-ple too, so this ruling applies to them. We think this is a mistake. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion and focused it narrowly. He said that the goal of campaign nanc-ing reform should be to prevent quidpro-quo corruption such as cash for an individual favor. Otherwise, he said, it vi-olates First Amendment protections. We wish Roberts and the court had tak-en a more thoughtful approach, espe-cially when it comes to granting human rights to inanimate organizations. How can a corporation speak with one voice? Or have only one opinion? A corpora-tion is a thing, not a breathing organism with feelings, a conscience and ideas of its own. We think there is something else at work. As a newspaper, we value freedom of speech, and ght to protect it. We know an effort to monopolize the conversation when we see it. Being able to stand and express your-self is a fundamental American right. A healthy democracy requires the exchange of ideas. Spending money, however, to repeat the same political message over and over is not healthy at all. Its propagan-da, plain and simple. The result of the Su-preme Courts decision means those with the most money get to out-shout every-one else. Its ridiculous to think of corporations and unions as individual people. It is sil-lier still to think that not being to throw money at every candidate who may one day be in position to do you a favor is a vi-olation of your constitutional rights. And it is completely irrational that the Supreme Court said all this is OK as fu-ture historians will say.Free speech to the highest bidderLast weekend Don and I went to see Noah, a bigbudget lm that claimed to be based on the Bible story of Noah and the ark. The creators of the lm ad-mitted to some artistic li-cense, but insisted that the tale was true to the Biblical account. I admit I went into the lm with warnings about it ringing in my ears. Many Bible believers trashed the lm for various reasons. My hope was that the things that were talked about were exaggerated. After all, the story of Noah is sketchy on some details. Films have al-ways eshed out their Bible stories The Ten Com-mandments took artistic li-cense as well, and its a clas-sic Biblical lm. So I went to the lm wary, but hopeful. My rst sur-prise was when Don and ar-rived at the theater the 4 p.m. showing was sold out. Obviously a lot of peo-ple were coming to see this lm. We managed to get in at 7 p.m. and settled down to see Noah on the big screen. The good news: The mov-ie isnt as bad as I thought it would be. The special ef-fects are pretty cool, the acting is well-done, and were this not purporting to be based on a true story it wouldve been an entertain-ing couple of hours. But it does claim to tell the story of Noah. And therein lies my problem with the lm. Saying that Noah takes artistic li-cense with the subject mat-ter is like saying the Atlantic Ocean is a body of water. Its much bigger than the words imply. It is true, for example, that the name God is not used in the whole lm. Instead, he is referred to as the Cre-ator throughout. If that was the worst thing they did I could forgive them for it. Af-ter all, I can buy they call God by that name. He is, in-deed, the Creator. But the changes they make are much more egre-gious than what to call God. In fact, God never directly speaks to Noah in the lm He communicates with the man through dreams and visions that Noah is forced to interpret. Quite different from the Biblical account, which has God giv-ing Noah specic instruc-tions, down to the type of wood he is to use and the dimensions of the ark. While Noahs oldest son, Shem, has a wife to bring into the ark, his young-er sons enter the ark with-out mates. This directly con-tradicts the Bible account, which states that Noahs sons and his sons wives all went into the ark. This makes a lot more sense than the movie, where the problem of mates for Noahs other two sons is solved by Shems wife bearing twin girls while on the ark. Those babies bring me to the most disturbing change the lm makes, that to the character of Noah himself. The Bible calls Noah a righ-teous man. In the lm, this same man decides that it is the Creators will that all mankind be destroyed, in-cluding his own family. When the twins are born, he decides he must kill them in order to ensure that the hu-man race will die off. See what happens when you are forced to rely on visions? If God had been speaking directly to him like the Bible says this point wouldve been made clear. But Noah goes by what he thinks is best, though in the end he chooses to spare the children and comes around to the concept that man-kind is to continue in the new world. There is so much more wrong with this lm, but I dont have room to raise these points. Sadly, I cant recommend this lm if you are into Biblical epics. But if you are interested in the story of Noah, I can say this much: like so many other lm adaptations, the book is better. Go give it a read.Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Guest columns are the opin-ion of the writer, not necessarily those of the staff of the News-Sun.Hollywood-style Noah cant beat original LAURAS L OO KLaura WarePresident Obama took a victory lap on Tuesday, cele-brating 7 mil-lion Obamacare enrollees. Lets take a look at this suc-cess. President Obama and the Democrats pushed through their signa-ture domestic policy stating the Af-fordable Care Act would cover every American. They have used the gure of million uninsured Americans. To date, Obamacare has then en-rolled less than 2 percent of those un-insured Americans. Its working! exclaimed the Presi-dent. The Rand Corporation crunched the numbers and discovered only 858,000 people of the 7 million enrollees have actually paid their premiums, which is required to actually be covered. Its working! You will soon read that many of the applications in the ofcial White House count are actually duplicate and incomplete applications. The worst of this naively ambitious plan is beginning and the Democrats know it, with millions of Americans having their doctors and hospitals ex-cluded from these government-de-signed insurance plans. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, a partic-ularly virulent attacker against all crit-icism of this failing program, actually said recently that there are no glaring problems with Obamacare. Administrators at Seattles Childrens Hospital told reporters they led stan-dard requests for specialty care for 125 children through the Obamacare ex-change. These include terribly sick children who will die without special-ized procedures and medical treat-ments. Obamacare ofcials only responded to 20 percent of those requests and de-nied eight of them. President Obama promised his plan would require that all children have health care coverage. The hospital is currently treating the children but they cant keep doing so for long. Apparently the death panels are al-ready at work. Its working! The New York Post reports, leading cancer centers including New Yorks Memorial Sloan Kettering are ex-cluded by the largest plans. Californias state-of-the-art Cedars-Sinai cancer center isnt in any ObamaCare plan. Only a few plans include the Mayo Clinic. And if you want a doctor out-side such networks, youll generally have to pay the full cost of care out of your own life savings. No glaring problems. Democrat Senator Harry Reid, an-other crusader for Obamacare, has publicly told the country that all of these stories about people losing cov-erage and doctors are lies. The Post also reports on Michael Cerpok, a leukemia survivor in Foun-tain Hills, Ariz. The ObamaCare law forced his in-surer to kill (his insurance) plan for one that ts the laws rules. Now hell have to pay more for drugs, and his Mayo Clinic doctor is no longer in his network. Last year, his treatment bill was more than $350,000, but thanks to insurance his out-of-pocket was only $4,500. Now, to keep his doctor, the one who has kept him alive for seven years, Cer-pok will have to pay $26,000 out of pocket. Mr. Cerpok is another of Sen. Harry Reids liars, like the kids with cancer losing their doctors and medical care. But then, Senator Reid has never cared much for such kids. The CEO of the Cleveland Clinic re-ports three quarters of Americans who have signed up for Obamacare have seen their premium costs increase. In 2008, President Obama told you, We can cut the average familys pre-mium by about $2,500 a year. Kids with cancer denied medical care, millions of families hammered with cost increases, millions losing their doctors and hospitals while Dem-ocrats call these people liars and claim there are no glaring problems.

Lake Placid Middle School student Chakiah Samp-son joined the First Bap-tist Church of Lake Plac-id for their team walk for the rst time ever Friday evening. Melissa Ojeda, another LMPS student, joined the fun on a whim and others returned to the track for another fun year. Survivors enjoyed a break from the glar-ing sun under the Survi-vors Tent near the cen-ter of the stadium, where live music and special guests entertained nearly 100 individuals who beat many different forms cancer over the years.

BY BARR Y FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING More than a dozen people turned out Wednesday at a coun-ty-owned clay pit north of Avon Park to talk about the possibility of renting the facility. Of the approximately 15 people who turned out for the pre-bid tour, there were two ofcial entities represented: the Heart-land Gun Club and Se-bring-based Spray & Pray Guns and Ammo. The facility, once home to a BMX bicycle rac-ing facility, has been sug-gested as a gun range site the by owners of Boom Booms Guns & Ammo in Sebring. Jeri Canale and Steve Maribel, owners of Boom Booms, were not at the Wednesday tour, saying they already are well fa-miliar with the site. Highlands County com-missioners last month called for request for pro-posals to be issued for those interested in the site for any reason after rst asking for letters of in-terest about turning the site into a gun range and getting two responses from the Heartland Gun Club and Boom Booms. Highlands County Parks and Recreation Director Vicki Pontius said it ap-peared at this time that nobody is interested in re-viving the BMX track. Although bids are set to be opened at 2 p.m. on April 24 at the Highlands County Purchasing De-partment, an addendum to the bid is slated to be released after April 11 to answer a number of ques-tions that were asked at the meeting. One of the questions that came up was the boundary lines, Pontius said. One of the gentle-men said they want to open a rie range, so hes looking for a long stretch of space. For some reason, our site plan has a demar-cation across it so actual-ly the land does not go all the way to County Road 17. Apparently, the area on the north side of the site had been used for park-ing when the bike rac-ers were there but is not included on the current proposal. Pontius said the staff plans to get with the countys mapping depart-ment to try and determine why the site has been de-lineated. There were questions about drainage and wa-ter retention at the site, said Highlands County Purchasing Agent Dani-elle Gilbert, who also was part of the tour. There also were questions about permitting and about the building that is there now. Once the RFPs have been received, they will be looked over by an eval-uation committee com-prised of Ponitus. High-lands County Zoning Supervisor Linda Con-rad and Highlands County Road and Bridge Depart-ment Director Kyle Green to determine whether or not they have met the list of requirements. The proposals are giv-en points based on the criteria, Gilbert said. The committee then tal-lies the scores and makes a recommendation. That recommendation is then given to the ad-ministration, who then will take it to the county commission, which may reject any or all of the pro-posals. No date for that has yet been set.Gun range supporters gather at clay pitTour of facility raises a few questions for county staffTHOMA S HULE NThomas Isaiah Hulen was born in Craven County, N.C. on June 6, 1948 to James Lee and Ozia Manley-Hulen.

Bicyclists using a public roadway are considered operators of motor vehicles and are responsible for observing all traffic laws. With few exceptions, there is only one road and it is up to motorists and bicyclists to treat each other with care and respect. Adherence to the law is the foundation of respect.

So if a jury had found him guilty on both charges, the judge would have had to throw out the lesser charge, he said. Fox was reported to be under the in uence at the time, and had ve passengers, two of them minors. All were treated and released at Highlands Regional Medical Center. Castillo said Fox had a trace of alcohol and marijuana in his system, which was not enough for a DUI manslaughter charge. However, he said, those trace amounts and reports that he was speeding and weaving through traf c prior to the wreck were enough to establish recklessness for a vehicular homicide charge. Castillo added that Fox had to be going fast to cross a curbed, uphill grass median and go airborne at the location of the crash. Fox wasnt charged until almost a year later on March 11, 2013 and wasnt booked into the Highlands County Jail until Feb. 3 of this year, on two counts of failing to appear for the felony offenses of vehicular homicide and driving without a valid drivers license. According to reports, police had trouble getting a witness statement and Fox, who was from Broward County, took a while to nd and charge. We had an outstanding warrant, but we couldnt locate him, Castillo said. PLEA FROM PAGE A1those storms a couple of weeks ago and we had a lot of wind. I got reports from some of our members that a lot of fruit hit the ground because of that, he said. Whatever stresses out the tree takes a greater toll on one infected by greening than it would on a completely healthy one. Determining the amount of fruit drop from year to year also has been a dif cult task. While growers do not keep such statistics, Royce said local groves are closely watched as a barometer of statewide production. Florida Ag Statistics is counting pieces of fruit throughout the year and you can even see their notations on the USDA reports regarding fruit drop, he said. Trees dropping part of their production is not a new phenomenon. Royce said that even under ideal conditions there usually is 5-10 percent of the crop that falls from the trees prematurely. That means a 20-25 percent drop actually represents only 10-15 percent above normal, ideal conditions. The numbers appear far better than last season, when it was estimated that fruit drop was as much as an unprecedented 40-45 percent. Erratic weather and greening were pointed to as culprits. For instance, weather last season was marked by severe temperature shifts. As this season heads into warmer months, ofcials worry that the rate of drop could get worse. That, apparently has to do with overlapping growth cycles. A lot of the guys have had multiple blooms, so when you look into the harvesting trucks youll see a lot of different pieces. Some are big orange ones, some are a lot smaller and not very orange, he said. The good news seems to be that the season evened out to help the upcoming Valencia orange harvest. February and March had a very uniform bouquet bloom. That could translate into a more consistent crop than the past years. Last year, there was bloom that was occurring from early February through as late as early May and therefore you had a lot of fruit that was in different stages of development, Royce said. Theres speculation that in itself created stress. The latest USDA prediction for the 2013-2014 harvest season is set to be released Wednesday. DROP FROM PAGE A1in February 2013 in La Jolla, Calif. They then took six teachers to the Florida conference in May of last year in St. Petersburg, then had the district host a regional conference Nov. 8-9 at Chateau lan in Sebring. More than 120 local teachers attended, including teachers from DeSoto and Okeechobee counties, Ervin said. They want to host another conference this October or November, and recruited Woodlawn Elementary School reading coach Cheryl Vermilye and Sebring High School International Baccalaureate teacher Holly Rapp to write $35,000 grant application to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the venue, food and supplies. With the grant, we want the numbers to grow, Vermilye said. We want to share (this) with everybody. Rapp said representatives from the Gates Foundation were blown away by what theyve seen from Highlands County. She loves how the program brings teachers out of their classrooms to share best practices in their schools and throughout the district. We all have great ideas, Rapp said. This is our forum. Each teacher who had attended the regional conference was asked to bring another teacher to Wednesdays event. Each school had a booth at the Sebring Middle Commons to explain how their teachers collaborate. School Board member Donna Howerton said the fact that teachers are talking about how to help each other is a great sign. Now theyre sharing across the grade levels, Howerton said. David Schuknecht, science teacher at Sebring Middle, said the conference helps remind teachers about why they became teachers. We get to see changes happen with students that we wouldnt see in other careers, Schuknecht said. His colleague, Josh McGhee, in his fth year teaching third grade at Memorial Elementary School, said he looked forward to hearing what other schools do. Aside from doing workshops to share effective teaching methods, schools use incentives. At Memorial Elementary, for example, public data boards showcase student and classroom progress to recognize those who do their best. Other strategies that stood out included Sun N Lake Elementary School, where students learn to nd symbolism and character motivation in stories so they will read with that direction in mind. Park Elementary School is teaching students to formulate their own questions. Avon Elementary School has math and science labs to help students apply what they learn. Lake Placid Middle School and Sebring High School both use WICOR, a system to focus on writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization and reading to help balance those skills. Lake Country Elementary School uses the Kagan Cooperative Structure, which gets students working with each other. At Sebring Middle, students are asked to work on classwork during normal social time, such as while having lunch, but there are incentives. Those with good grade averages may go to special events. TEACHERS FROM PAGE A1Investigators are treating this case as a homicide and are interested in speaking with anyone who may have seen what happened, she said. There has not been much to go on because of a language barrier in the neighborhood and fear of law enforcement. Deputies will not question witnesses about their immigration status, Hays said. They simply want to know what happened. Anyone with information is requested to contact Detective Nathan Coogan of the Sheriffs Of ce Criminal Investigations Unit at 863-4027341 or 863-402-7250. Anyone with information who wants to remain anonymous, and eligible for a cash reward is asked to contact Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477) or on the Internet at www. heartlandcrimestoppers. com.

www.newssun.com Sunday, April 6, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A9 SPORTS BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com SEBRING The rough stretch for Blue Streak baseball continued Friday night in a 4-2, extrainning loss to visiting Oviedo. Its frustrating be cause were play ing well, for the most part, designated hitter Cullen Lovett said. But its just been a little thing here or there thats hurt us. As was the case this night, culminating a week that saw Mondays loss to county rival Lake Placid and Thursdays 5-4 loss at district foe Lemon Bay. In this one, Josh Crouch was locked in a pitch ers duel with Lions righthander Aaron Norman. Sebring got on the board in the third with Everett Hurst rocketing a frozen rope that onehopped the left-cen ter eld wall but was hit so hard and ricocheted so quick ly that he was held to a single. Eli White then laid down a sacrice bunt to move Hurst to second and one out later, Lovett sliced a single to left for the open ing run. And that run held up as the innings progressed, with Crouch and the Streaks dodging a few bul lets. With two outs and Jeff Woodard on second in the top of the fourth, Ryan An derson hit a chopper half way between the mound and the third-base line. Crouch swept in to snare it, but his off-bal ance throw pulled rst baseman Seth Cannady off the base. But Cannady alert ly saw Woodard trying to advance to third and whipped it across the dia mond, with David DeGen aro swiping the tag down for the third out. And in the fth, John Streaks overcome by Oviedo Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Cullen Lovett drove home two runs Friday night, but that marked all the Sebring production in a 4-2 loss to Oviedo at Firemens Field. OVIEDO 4 SEBRING 2 SEE SEBRING | A12 BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com AVON PARK Averaging 12 runs per game during the week, the Avon Park nine sure made things easy on their pitching staff. And it paved the way to a 3-0 record with Fri days 9-2 win over visiting McKeel Academy at Head Field. After Tuesdays 18-run ex plosion at Frost proof, the Red Dev ils tallied another nine in Thursdays 9-4 home win over LaBelle, courtesy of four Mykel Gordon RBI and a three-run homer from J.C. Cobb. It was more of the same Friday night, as the Dev ils also had a little payback in mind. It was exactly one month earlier, on Tuesday, March 4, that the Tigers scored six in the bottom of the seventh for a 7-6 win that gave Avon Park its lone district loss of the season. Southpaw starter Ken ny McGrath kept McKeel scoreless through three and the Devils drew rst blood in the bottom of the third. With two out, Luis Mar tinez and Tyrone Perry drew consecutive walks. Gordon then singled sharply to left for the rst dent on the scoreboard. McGrath worked a scoreless fourth and his offense plated two more in the bottom of the frame. With one out, Trey Fra zier walked and Kyle Thompson was hit by a pitch. An Alfred Brown single loaded the bases and Mar tinez then singled Frazier home. A Perry ground out scored Thompson and the lead stood at 3-0. McGrath walked the rst batter of the fth, but that was erased when a grounder to Gordon at rst was turned into a double play. But back-to-back sin gles marked the end of McGraths night as Per ry came on to get the last out. Red Devils keep on rollin Dan Hoehne/News-Sun les Mykel Gordon tallied ve hits and drove in seven runs in the Red Devils two late-week wins. AVON PARK 9 MCKEEL 2 SEE DEVILS | A11 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Balloons were released as part of the pre-game ceremony Tuesday at SFSC, with Lauren Phillips parents on hand to be honored. BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com Phrases like a trying week or a rough week dont even begin to do jus tice to what the South Florida State College soft ball team went through. From a Thursday, March 27, loss at Hillsborough, to being awakened the next morning with the horri fying news that beloved teammate Lauren Phil lips had been taken from them, to trying to regroup and stay strong through Tuesdays pre-game trib ute to Phillips and hon oring her family and then taking on conference rival Polk State. The team has nobly ad opted the motto to Do it for 20, Phillips uniform number. The girls were obvious ly shocked. Lauren was a huge part of the team. Theyve described her as the glue that held the team together, assistant coach Heather Barnes said early in the week. From a coaches standpoint you cant even ask for a better player. She came to us as a walk on and worked her butt off and instant ly earned a scholarship, Barnes continued. Her work ethic, her want to get better, and her overall positive attitude is some thing that is going to be missed. We are dedicat ing this season to her. She wanted to go to states so bad so were gonna ght to get there. Weve kind of been using the quote #doitfor20 as our motiva tion. But in such a whirlwind of tragedy and emotion, the words are often easier to say than to initially live up to. Though it seemed to be taking hold as the Lady Panthers took a 6-2 lead over Polk in Tuesdays Lady Panthers work their way through trying week SEE PHILLIPS | A12 LINDSEY SHELTON The Natchez Democrat NATCHEZ, Miss. A quick tap on the roof of the electric hunting cart and the pop of two rie shots and Jody Greene and Jeff Goeggle have taken down their rst hog of the night. Its one of hundreds they will kill this year; they bagged 420 last year. Goeggles tap on the roof of the cart signals he has spotted a hog, and he and Greene both shoot to ensure one of them hits the animal. Its a routine theyll repeat during approx imately 200 hunts in 2014. You might call them hog wild, but they are just two of many local hunters who are part of a national trend of rec reational hog hunt ing thats popularity has soared in recent years. Goeggle and Greene, who run Double G Hog Control in Monterey with Greenes wife, Tra cy, have hunted hogs to gether for nearly three years for farmers and landowners who have problems with wild hogs rooting up their prop erty. While they are happy to be of service to those whose land or crops are overrun by hogs, Goeg gle and Greene enjoy hog hunting and dont charge for their services. The hunters general ly stop at gas stations or other places after hunts and give away the hogs. The network of farm ers and friends theyve created provides them with 150,000 acres in Mississippi and Louisi ana to hunt anytime they want. Its fun to do, and its challenging, Greene said. Its something I can do with my family and friends, and its pret ty exciting out there at night. Greene and Goeggle hunt during the day and also at night using nightvision goggles and ther mal scopes.

The tradi tional season opener between Houston and Cincin nati was canceled and a total of 86 games were lost before the strike was settled. 1973 Ron Blomberg of the New York Yankees became the rst major league designated hit ter. With the bases loaded in the rst inning, he was walked by pitcher Luis Tiant, but the Red Sox won 15-5. 1973 At the Oakland Coliseum, Tony Oliva be came the rst designated hitter to homer. The Twins DH hit a two-run shot in the rst inning off of Catsh Hunter to Minnesota to an 8-3 win. 1974 Due to renovations at Yankee Stadium, the New York Yankees home opener took place at Shea Stadium. It was their rst home game outside Yankee Stadium since 1922. 1977 The Seattle Mariners played their rst regular-season game and lost 7-0 to the California Angels at the Kingdome. 1982 A freak storm that brought subfreezing temperatures and dumped heavy snow from the Northeast to the Midwest forced the postponement of American League openers in New York, Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland and Milwaukee, and National League openers in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. 2005 Brad Wilkerson hit for the cycle to lead Washington over Philadelphia 7-3. 2009 Tony Clark and Felipe Lopez each homered from both sides of the plate to lead Arizona to a 9-8 victory over Colorado. 2009 Emilio Bonifacio hit the majors rst in side-the-park homer on opening day since 1968, swiped three bases and had four hits in Floridas 12-6 victory over Washington. 2009 Alfonso Soriano hit his 50th career leadoff home run as Chicago beat Houston 4-2. 2012 Adam Dunn tied a major league record with his eighth opening-day home run. He led off the sixth inning for the Chicago White Sox when he pulled a ball into the second deck of seats in right eld off Texas starter Colby Lewis. Frank Robinson and Ken Griffey Jr. are the other major leaguers who have eight homers in openers. Todays birthdays: Alexi Amarista, 25; Bert Bly leven, 63.

Alex Gomez singled with one out and moved to third on a Frazier double to left. Thompson singled Gomez home and Browns base-knock brought Frazier in. Martinez hit a deep y to left-center, which brought Thompson home, and Gordon would single up the middle to bring Brown around for a 7-0 lead. The Tigers would scratch for two unearned runs in the top of the sixth, but Avon Park got those right back in their half. Gomez and Frazier both walked and Brown doubled to bring Gomez in. Frazier would soon come in on a passed ball to make it a 9-2 game. Which it would stay as Perry squashed any notion of another McKeel rally by retiring the side in order, with two strike outs, to end it. Now 15-3 overall, the Devils are 6-1 and sit alone atop the District 9-4A standings, two games ahead of Mulberry. And its the Panthers who are next on the docket as Avon Park heads to Mulberry Tuesday for their nal district game of the regular season.

South Florida plays at home again Monday night, with a 5 p.m. start against Pasco-Hernando.FORBES, PANTHERS STAY AHEAD OF FIRE The thermals pick up heat, and theres no way they can hide from them, Greene said. Goeggle and Greene have developed a system involving teamwork to effectively hunt hogs at night. Goeggle rides on the back of a Polaris hunting cart scanning the horizon through his thermal scope before moving his eyes to the farmland, looking for signs of rooting or a bright white spot, indicating heat from an animal. When he spots something, Goeggle taps on the roof of the cart and gives Greene whos wearing the night-vision goggles directions to the animal. Sometimes its an armadillo, a deer, maybe even a bear. But if it is a hog or a group of hogs, called a sounder, Goeggle and Greene determine who takes the rst shot, and then a second shot from the other hunter follows to ensure a kill. Goeggle and Greene dont want to give away all their secrets, but they say it takes perseverance and perfected techniques to hunt hogs. Hogs are highly intelligent and thrive in a variety of climates and conditions, which Greene and Goeggle say means they can be run off one spot only to pop up in another. The surge in popularity of wild hog hunting locally follows a national trend of hunting hogs recreationally. Some would argue the increased popularity of hog hunting came as a response to farmland and other property becoming overrun with wild hogs. Others, like Mississippi State extension associate Bill Hamrick, say the translocation and release of wild hogs for hunting is largely responsible for the pervasiveness of wild hogs, which number in the millions around the country. There have always been some pockets of them around, but it seems like in the past 10 years, its really gotten worse, Hamrick said. Wild hogs are considered nuisance animals in Mississippi and Louisiana and have looser regulations than traditional game. Landowners and leaseholders and any hunter with the landowner or leaseholders written permission may hunt nuisance animals year-round at any time of day or night with no caliber restrictions on the lands they own or lease in Mississippi. In Louisiana, wild hogs can be hunted year-round during the day. Nighttime wild hog hunting is allowed March 1-Aug. 31. Those loose regulations compared to regulations on other game are one of the main appeals to local hunters who like to hunt all year and practice their shot between deer, turkey, duck and other game seasons. Hogs are not Tres Atkins go-to game animal, but he does hunt them to stay sharp in between seasons. Theres no season on them, and theres no set limit, and its something for me to do in between deer and turkey season, he said. Hunter Billy Fitt was hunting coyotes when he came up on a group of hogs on a hunting trip years ago on Glasscock Island. Ive been hunting them basically my whole life, but I got real serious about it probably three years ago, he said. Fitt mainly hunts hogs using traps, occasionally with dogs. You have to be relentless, he said. Its not like deer hunting. It takes a lot of time, and they go nocturnal if you pressure them. Theyre unpredictable, too. They can be in one spot one day and then two miles from it the next day. But its a lot of fun when you get one.Information from: The Natchez Democrat, http://www. natchezdemocrat.com/ HOGS FROM PAGE A9 TIM REYNOLDSAP Basketball WriterMIAMI Corey Brewer hit one of two free throws with 1.8 seconds left in the second overtime, and the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Miami Heat 122121 on Friday night.

Their run of good fortune, however, would go by the wayside in the seventh. Norman singled to start the frame, moved up to second and then to third on a sacri ce bunt. Crouch got Shane Miller to pop out to DeGenaro at third for the second out. But an error on a Cameron Peppiatt grounder allowed the tying run to come in and move the game into extras. But there would be just the one extra inning, as Oviedo burst through for three runs in the top of the eighth. Sebring would load the bases in the bottom half and get one run back on a Lovett sacri ce y. But that would be all the could muster as a frustrating week came to an end.

But it wasnt to be as the Eagles came back to win it and then took the nightcap as well. The results didnt get better in Thursdays twinbill either, as the team dropped both ends to Webber, but watching the games, a difference in the team was noticeable. In a hard-fought opener, South Florida held a 1-0 lead until the seventh, when an error opened the gates to a winning rally for the Warriors. The positive trend continued in the second game as the Panthers pushed it into extra innings before falling. And it is a positive feeling that the team had afterward. It was a really good game. We all nally came together and performed, third baseman Kala Thompson said. Instead of just saying do it for 20 we actually did it for her. A mindset that they hope to hold onto in what will surely be a season that continues to test them. Its de nitely going to be the toughest season of our lives, Barnes said.

The late spring is delaying time on the elds for many Vermont high school sports teams. Montpelier High School boys baseball team had a home scrimmage scheduled for next week and the girls tennis team had a home match scheduled for Monday. But both events are being pushed back because spring has been slow to arrive. Baseball coach J.B. McCarthy says spring sports are tough, but after a string of mild winters that saw many teams practicing outside in March, this year is a reminder that weather rules. McCarthy says his baseball players can throw and hit inside, although they cant shag y balls. Senior player Zach Morrill says that can make practices more difcult, but hes more interested in getting to know his new team.Snow is keeping many spring athletes inside

LIVING BSunday, April 6, 2014 Photos courtesy of Getty Images Family Features As a parent, you make decisions ev-ery day to keep your child safe and healthy, which include keeping your child up-to-date on vaccines to help pro-tect against serious diseases. You may wonder if the diseases that vac-cines prevent are even a threat to your child, how they offer protection and why your child needs to get their shots at cer-tain ages. Learning about vaccines will help you better understand why the disease protec-tion they provide is so important for you and your family. Germs, Germs EverywhereThere are many ways your child could be exposed to germs, like bacteria and viruses, that cause diseases. For ex-ample, germs could come from people coughing or sneezing around them or when they put toys in their mouths. When these germs get into your childs body through their eyes, nose, mouth, or open cuts they attack and multiply. This in-vasion is called an infection, which is what makes your child sick. Your childs immune system then has to work to ght it off. If your child has received a vaccine to protect him against a disease, it will help his immune system safely ght off the dis-ease, and develop immunity. Vaccines act like, or imitate, an infection. This imita-tion infection does not cause illness, but instead, it causes the immune system to react in a way similar to how it does to a real infection. As a re-sult, your childs immune system will cre-ate cells to recognize and ght the vac-cine-preventable disease in the future. This protection is called immunity.Immunity Stops OutbreaksImmunity is important to protect your child against vaccine-preventable diseas-es, like whooping cough also known as pertussis and chickenpox, both of which still occur in the United States. If people stopped vaccinating, even the few cases of the vaccine-preventable dis-eases that dont occur as commonly in the United States, like measles, could very quickly become tens or hundreds of thou-sands of cases. Some of these diseases are still com-mon in other parts of the world. You may think this isnt a problem if you dont travel to these countries, but your child could come into contact with inter-national travelers anywhere in your com-munity. Kids that are not fully vaccinated and are exposed to a disease can become seriously sick and spread it through a community. To stop the spread of a disease, the ma-jority of a community has to be immu-nized against that disease. When the ma-jority of the community has the safe, proven protection of the vaccine, the out-break doesnt get the opportunity to keep spreading. Timing Is EverythingWhen you vaccinate your child accord-ing to CDCs recommended schedule, you are providing him with the best protection early in life, before he is exposed to lifethreatening diseases. This recommend-ed schedule is designed to protect infants and children by providing immunity when they are suscep tible to diseases. The con-sequences of these diseases can be very serious, and even life-threatening, for in-fants and young children. The CDC sets the U.S. childhood immu-nization schedule based on recommenda-tions from a group of medical and public health experts called the Advisory Com-mittee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). This group carefully studies all safety and effectiveness data to make recommenda-tions about vaccines. The ACIP also looks at how severe the disease is, and the num-ber of children who get it when there is no vaccine. Vaccines Give You the Power to ProtectImmunizations have helped to great-ly improve the health of children in the United States. By continuing to vaccinate your baby according to the recommend-ed immunization schedule, you are giv-ing him the best protection against 14 se-rious childhood illnesses before he is two years old. To learn more about immunizations, visit the CDC online at www.cdc.gov/vac-cines/parents or call 800-CDC-INFO. How to stop diseases before they start Stress less at your next shot visit Even though you know vaccines are protecting your baby against diseases, it doesnt make it less stressful for you to see your little one get shots. Fortunately, there are simple ways you can support your child before, dur-ing and after shots.Before Getting Shots Read any vaccine materials you re-ceive from your childs health care professional and write down ques-tions. Pack a favorite toy or book, and a blanket that your child uses regularly for comfort.FOR OLDER CHILDREN Be honest with your child. Explain that shots can pinch or sting, but that it wont hurt for long.At the Doctors Office Ask the doctor the questions you wrote down ahead of time. Sit the child upright on your lap. Distract and comfort your child by cuddling, singing or talking softly. Ask your childs doctor for advice on steps you can take to comfort your child at home.FOR OLDER CHILDREN Take deep breaths with your child to help blow out the pain. Point out interesting things in the room to help create distractions. Tell or read stories. Support your child if he or she cries. Never scold a child for not being brave.After the Shots Review information your doctor gives you about the shots, especially the Vac-cine Information Statements or other sheets that outline which side effects might be expected. Use a cool, wet cloth to reduce any redness, soreness or swelling from the injection. Give your child lots of liquid. Its nor-mal for some children to eat less during the 24 hours after getting vaccines. Pay extra attention to your child for a few days. If you see something that concerns you, call your doctor. Preventable Diseases Make sure your baby gets all doses of each vaccine according to the CDCs schedule for best protection against 14 serious diseases before he turns two years old: Chickenpox Diphtheria Flu (Inuenza) Haemophilus in-uenzae type b (Hib) Hepatitis A Hepatitis B Measles Mumps Polio Pneumococcal Disease Rotavirus Rubella Tetanus Whooping Cough (Pertussis) K IDS H EA LT H

My father-in-law, John, has always been a man of extremely few words with me. He most-ly just ignores me when Im around. I have men-tioned it to my husband and mother-in-law over the years, and they say hes just weird. Last year, my broth-er-in-law married a nice woman, Donna. It turns out that John talks just ne with her. Hes not overly chatty, but hes friendly and polite. They had a 20-minute con-versation on Christmas Eve, and I dont remem-ber ever exchanging more than three sentences with the man. Im naturally so-ciable and easygoing, and I dont know why John would treat me so rudely for so long. Of course, Im jealous. I would trade the father-inlaw I have had for the one Donna has in a heartbeat. Im so hurt and angry that I nd it difcult to be in the same room with him now. I am seeing a thera-pist, which helps, but Im still not sure how to get over this or how to pro-ceed. Can you offer me some advice? LIKE IM NOT HEREDEAR LIKE: Ill try. There could be any num-ber of reasons why your father-in-law has been unable to connect with you, and I can think of at least one that might have nothing to do with you. Has it occurred to you that this may have some-thing to do with the way he feels about your hus-band? Sometimes the negative feelings a par-ent has toward a child can spill over onto the spouse. That might ex-plain his warmer attitude toward your sister-in-law. However, if thats not the case, then you will have to accept that peo-ple dont always have the same level of chemis-try with everyone and your father-in-law isnt being intentionally hurt-ful. I have experienced this, and if you think about it, Im sure you probably have, too. Im glad youre see-ing a therapist, although I hope the reason isnt your father-in-law. If be-ing around him is un-comfortable for you, then limit the time you spend with your in-laws. Thats what Id do. DEAR ABBY: Over the past 35 years I have saved all the cards, letters and photographs sent to me by friends. I thought it would be fun to make them into scrapbooks and give them back to those friends one day. Now that I nally have the time to organize them all, Im not so sure. They are pre-Facebook. There are lots of letters about their pregnancies, birth announcements, childrearing experiences and holiday letters. Can you ask your read-ers if they would welcome something like this or should I toss them all? Its time to clean house. UNSURE IN THE WESTDEAR UNSURE: Ill put the question out there, but the people who real-ly should answer are the friends for whom youre thinking of creating those scrapbooks. Speaking for myself, I think they would be priceless gifts, but I cant answer for everyone.Dear Abby is written by Abi-gail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was found-ed by her mother, Pauline Phil-lips.

Jeremy Wade brought a tank with a black piranha and a candiru to a recent appointment. Wade hosts Animal Planets River Monsters, the networks most popular series, where he goes around the world to nd ugly and often legendary creatures that lurk in murky waters. River Monsters begins its sixth season tonight at 9 p.m. with a story on a 1981 shipwreck in the Amazon. Much of the seasons stories are set in the Amazon, hence the piranha and candiru. Toothy piranha you already know about them. The candiru? You dont want to. The tiny, eel-like creature has been known for very unpleasant in ltrations into humans. Unlike many River Monsters episodes, where the sherman Wade hunts for creepy creatures, Sundays story about the Sobra Santos is a mystery. The overcrowded ship sank at a particularly inopportune time and location. It was pitchblack, and the ship wrecked in an eddy near a sh processing plant that attracted a hungry and vicious type of cat sh. Some 200 people were killed, and many body parts of victims were missing. The cat sh are known to feed on human remains.River Monsters returns for 6th season

Let Trojan Golf Cart battery get you hopping! NEW & USED Tires Good Pre-owned Electric Carts Lik e us on WE BUY OLD GOLF CARTS! CROSSWORD SOLUTION ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT FRAZIER MOOREAP Television WriterNEW YORK David Lettermans departure from the late-night realm wont just end an unmatched run on television. It also will close the book on an era reaching almost to the birth of TV. During a taping of Thursdays edition of Late Show, Letterman startled his audience with the news that he will step down in 2015, when his current contract with CBS expires. He speci ed no end date, saying he expects his exit will be in at least a year or so, but sometime in the not too distant future 2015, for the love of God, (band leader) Paul (Shaffer) and I will be wrapping things up. What hell be wrapping up is three decades on the air the longest tenure of any late-night talk show host in U.S. television history since he launched Late Night at NBC in 1982. But more than that, hell be ending a lineage of late-night hosts who pioneered talk and humor in the wee hours Johnny Carson, of course, and, before him, Jack Paar and especially Steve Allen. Ironically, they were all on NBC, the network that denied Letterman the Tonight Show crown he sought and, after he lost out to Jay Leno, prompted him to pitch his tent at CBS as Lenos rival. Referring to CBS chairman Leslie Moonves as the man who owns this network, Letterman told viewers Thursday, I phoned him just before the program, and I said, Leslie, its been great, youve been great, and the network has been great, but Im retiring. Along with his network, Letterman thanked all of the people who have worked here, all of the people in the theater, all the people on the staff, everybody at home thank you very much. What this means now, he cracked, is that Paul and I can be married. Since premiering with Late Show in 1993, Letterman, who turns 67 next week, has reigned at Broadways Ed Sullivan Theater, a historic venue nearly a century old that was famously home to The Ed Sullivan Show. The Los Angeles-based Leno, 63, retired from The Tonight Show this year, clearing the way, not by his choice, for Late Night host Jimmy Fallon to move up to that TV institution. In contrast to Leno, Lettermans leave-taking appears to be his choice. For 21 years, David Letterman has graced our networks air in late night with wit, gravitas and brilliance unique in the history of our medium, Moonves said. Its going to be tough to say goodbye. Letterman, who was a radio talk show host and local TV weatherman, moved to Los Angeles in the 1970s and, among his early gigs, was a writer and performer on a summer variety show and a member of the comedy troupe of a short-lived program starring Mary Tyler Moore. In 1980, he hosted an NBC morning show, which lasted only ve months while winning two Emmy awards. Two years after that, he was turned loose with Late Night, where he clicked. A generation later, Letterman will leave with an unparalleled comic legacy of weirdness, laserfocused sarcasm and an ironic sensibility that saturated the culture. (Letterman-esque may not be in any dictionary, but his fans know what it means.) Meanwhile, the famously private Letterman, a true product of his Midwest upbringing, gave the world an occasional glimpse into his inner life in ways that were as notable for their intensity as they were for their rareness. Viewers will never forget the real-life drama surrounding his quintuple heart bypass and his triumphant return to the air in February 2000, when he brought onstage the doctors and nurses who had saved him. He was nearly in tears as he thanked them. A week after the Sept. 11 attacks, he delivered a riveting, from-the-heart monologue, connecting with his viewers in their shared mourning and disbelief.Letterman announces plans to retire in 2015 MCTDavid Letterman, who has been hosting Late Show on CBS since 1993 and was on NBC for 11 years before that. Thursday, he announced that next year will be his last on the air. Wrapping things up The Associated PressTen memorable quotes from David Letterman, who announced hes retiring from Late Show on Thursday: I think the longer we just sit here, the more uncomfortable it will make Jay. Letterman after sharing awkward silence with Conan OBrien following the fellow talk show hosts mix-up with Jay Leno in 2012. Youre going to be sick for weeks. You wont be out of the egg for a month. Letterman to Lady Gaga after the outlandish pop star put his notes in her mouth during an appearance in 2011. The creepy stuff was that I have had sex with women who worked for me on this show. Now, my response to that is yes I have. I have had sex with women who worked on this show. Would it be embarrassing if it were made public? Perhaps it would, especially for the women. Letterman addressing an extortion scandal that led him to bare his in delities on the show in 2009. Joaquin, Im sorry you couldnt be here tonight. Letterman to Joaquin Phoenix after the Walk the Line stars bizarre 2009 interview in which he claimed he was dropping acting to become a hip-hop musician. This doesnt smell right. This is not the way a tested hero behaves. Somebodys putting something in his Metamucil. Letterman after Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain canceled his appearance at the last minute in 2008. Howd you like being in jail? Letterman to Paris Hilton following her prison time in 2001. If you didnt believe it before and its easy to understand how you might have been skeptical on this point if you didnt believe it before, you can absolutely believe it now: New York City is the greatest city in the world. Letterman during his monologue on his rst show back after the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001. While I was gone, I had quintuple bypass surgery on my heart. Plus, I got a haircut. Letterman during his monologue on his rst show after heart surgery in 2000. I cant thank you enough for that. Letterman after Drew Barrymore ashed her breasts to him on his birthday in 1995. I wanna thank you folks for coming in for this run-through show. Thank you very much. This, of course, will never see the light of day. You wont miss a thing tonight.

In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what esh can do unto me. It is in the midst of lifes storm that God lets us glimpse Him and worship Him as we never can otherwise. We sometimes get in an emotional storm because God wants to hear us say what David said: What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. When you are in the shadows and you see no way out, you have been taken there for a purpose, and that purpose is entirely about your view of Him. Its only when you realize Hes all you have that you discover Hes all you need. Be Blessed! Please support the above businesses. They have made this page possible. RELIGION Have you ever picked up a book and decided to read it because the cover caught your eye? Or vice versa? Since the cover is the rst thing you see, its important in attracting readers. Smart publishers seek the right artistic design to draw us in. However, the contents far surpass the cover. If whats inside doesnt hold your attention, the beauty of the cover is lost. When we published a collection of my columns in a devotional-style book, I asked myself what I wanted the reader to take away from time spent between its pages. I wanted them to be inspired to know their Creator and experience Gods peace, joy, tranquility, hope and rest; to live expectantly in his presence. So, when a photo I had taken some years before came to mind, I quickly located it and knew I had found my cover. A tranquil lake scene with mountain backdrop and a Japanese maple in full color gracefully leaning toward the lake quietly spoke to what was inside. Isnt it the same with each of us? Arent we books that some people read by just looking at us from the outside? Perhaps, were judged too swiftly before they get to know us. Or, just maybe we belie what is inside by putting on a good front. In either case, its good to consider that if we are Christians, our cover and content should match and be a re ection of the One we call Lord. We will not achieve perfection in this sinful world, but we should de nitely not be practicing sinful behaviors. Rather we should seek to please God with our livesour choices. Meeting with the Lord through prayer and Scripture reading allows his thought patterns to become ours. Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth, says 2 Timothy 2:15, NKJV. Growing in our faith chokes out the weeds that would mar the garden of our lives. When our son became a Marine, he had a code of ethics he must live by. Anyone seeing him in uniform knew what this courageous young man stood for. Recently, I saw a bumper sticker that gave us both shared laughter. It said, I may look harmless, but I raised a U.S. Marine. Sometimes a humble exterior will house a courageous spirit! Lets be open minded when looking at others while doing our best to rightly re ect our Lord from the inside out.

LEANNE ITALIEAssociated PressNEW YORK No rent collection while in jail, double the dough for landing on Go and clean out Free Parking if your luck takes you there are among ve made-up Monopoly rules Facebook fans voted in for future editions of the board game. Several thousand people weighed in on house rules over 10 days of recent debate and a year after Hasbro Inc. added a cat token and retired the iron in a similar online stunt aimed at keeping the 79-year-old game fresh. Our goal is to stay current and deliver Monopoly in a way that they want to engage with it and that means sometimes being new and having modern takes on the brand, said Jonathan Berkowitz, vice president of marketing, ahead of Fridays house rules announcement. New means old all over again in this case since house rules are often passed on through generations. Some casual players may have thought a few of the 10 in the running before debate ended Thursday were already in the ofcial rule book. And some, even regular players, might not have heard of others. Did you know some people play that moms get out of jail for free? Always. No questions asked. That one didnt make the cut. Nor did buying houses for a property without an actual monopoly (a complete color set of properties), or starting the game by placing half of all the money on the game board for a cash-grabbing freefor-all on the count of three. Hasbros house rules debate came after the company received results of a survey showing nearly 70 percent of 1,000 respondents reported never having read all Monopoly rules and 34 percent said they had made up rules more than once. The winning house rule for landing on Go means players get 400 Monopoly dollars instead of the of cial 200. As for Free Parking, of cial rules call for absolutely nothing to happen when a player lands there. Under the house rule, any taxes and fees collected are thrown into the middle for a lucky someone who lands on that corner square. Rounding out the ve winners are players must travel around the board one full time before they can begin buying properties, and collecting 500 bucks for rolling double ones. To appease hardcore players not interested in new rules, the Pawtucket, R.I., company will put the winners into a special House Rules Edition to be released in the fall and add them to classic Monopolys game guide next year as unof cial. There are a lot of Monopoly purists who want to play by the classic rules and dont want to change it, but we love the idea of there being some optional rules in there that can mix up the game a little bit, Berkowitz said.No rent from jail, bonus for snake eyes among 5 Monopoly house rules fans pick for new set New house rulesMCTLanding on Go will get you 400 Monopoly dollars instead of 200 under new house rules picked by fans. DARLENE SUPERVILLEAssociated PressWASHINGTON Spring has sprung at the White House and soon the vegetables will, too. With lots of helping hands on Wednesday, Michelle Obama replanted her fruit and vegetable garden on the South Lawn. New this year is a pollinator garden, an area with a variety of owers that were chosen to help encourage the production of bees and Monarch butter ies to help spread pollen, Mrs. Obama told about two dozen students from four local schools who were invited to help with the sixth annual garden planting. Were going to plant all kinds of owers that attract bees and butteries, which is not going to make the Obama girls happy because they dont really like bees, she said of her daughters, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12. But bees are good. Bees are a good thing. Other additions to the garden are oats, speci cally a variety known as Lincoln Oats, and a paw paw tree. The paw paw fruit is native to the eastern part of the country and has a soft, orange esh that tastes like the mash-up of a banana and a mango. Mrs. Obamas planting effort also was aided by the founders of FoodCorps, which is part of the AmeriCorps national service program, and six of its volunteers. First lady plants White House garden for spring ANNE DINNOCENZIOAP Retail WriterNEW YORK J.C. Penney is hoping that some supermodel magic will win over shoppers in the lingerie department. The beleaguered department store chain is launching an exclusive lingerie collection in the U.S. with a partnership with Elle Macpherson, who along with Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and others de ned a new generation of supermodels in the 1980s. The collection will be in 300 of Penneys 1,100 stores starting April 11. Penney says it will wait to see how the brand fares before deciding whether to roll it out to its other stores. The collection, called The Body by Elle Macpherson, which refers to her nickname, offers bras and panties in mostly cotton. Its emphasis is on the smoothest, most precise t that can be worn every day. The collection builds on Macphersons lingerie business that she founded in 1990.Penney teams up with Macpherson for lingerie

At approximately 6:30 p.m. March 28, 2012, Foxs GMC Envoy SUV swerved out of control while southbound on U.S. 27, crossed a curbed median near Alan Jay Automotive Headquarters, hit a raised concrete drain, went airborne and landed on top of a northbound Ford Focus. Peggy Sue Roaf, 52, of Sebring was killed instantly by the impact, accident investigation reports said. He pleaded no contest to vehicular homicide on Monday, March 31, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison, ve years probation and a lifetime drivers license suspension, said Assistant State Attorney Richard Castillo. Castillo expressed cynicism as to whether a lifetime suspension would keep Fox off the road. He didnt have a (valid) drivers license the day of the wreck, Castillo said. The State Attorneys Ofce opted to try Fox on only the vehicular homicide charge. There was an additional charge of driving on a suspended license resulting in death, but that charge would have been double jeopardy and Driver takes plea deal in fatal wreckSentenced to 10 years in prison Christopher Tuf ey/News-Sun le photoNicholas Steven Fox will serve 10 years in prison after pleading no contest to vehicular homicide for this rash on U.S. 27 on March 28, 2012, that killed Peggy Sue Roaf, 52, of Sebring. BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterLAKE PLACID Deputies went out to investigate a 911 call a week ago about a man with head injury lying on the ground. The man was rushed to the hospital, but died. Now deputies want to know who fatally injured him and how. Highlands County Sheriffs deputies found the man at approximately 11 p.m. March 28. He was badly injured and lying on a dirt trail behind Lupita Grocery in Lake Placid. The victim, whose identity has not been released by investigators, was airlifted to Lee Memorial Hospital, where he later died from his injuries. Nell Hays, public information of cer for the Sheriffs Of ce, said the man was a migrant worker from Mexico, and deputies want to be certain family has been noti ed of his death before his name is published.Deputies seeking info on homicide BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING As local citrus growers await the latest numbers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, they say fruit drop continues to be a problem this harvesting season, saying it could be as high as 20-25 percent of this years crop. I think it is a serious problem in some blocks but some blocks are faring better than others, said Highlands County Citrus Growers Association Executive Director Ray Royce. It doesnt appear to be as bad across the board as it was a year ago. Determining why its happening is another matter altogether. Although the citrus greening disease has been an increasing concern, Royce said there is a variety of other factors. Greening certainly gets most of the blame, but I think growers are wondering if it might actually be a combination of things, he said. Royce explained the presence of greening exacerbates any stress on the trees. Stress factors include such things as the levels of water, herbicides and other chemicals, and weather factors. For instance, we had Fruit drop not as bad as last yearStill expected to be at least 20-25 percent of crop BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING It started with a conference and an idea: Have teachers show teachers how to improve their teaching. It has grown into a local movement that, at a national conference in February, had educators from Los Angeles, Chicago and New York City asking to talk with the people from Highlands County to learn how they can collaborate within their school districts to improve teaching skills. Its called Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers, or ECET2.

Those cases inv olve pools not installed or not completed at two Se bring homes. In all cases, char ges were led and Terry arrested on Tues day. Names of victims, although av ailable in re ports, are not being used to pr otect their privacy. According to one ar rest report from the H ighlands County Sher iffs Ofce, a customer contr acted Terry in June 2013 and handed him a check to start work at a home on U.S. 98 in Se bring. O n Oct. 1, 2013, con crete was poured for the pool. The customer, at Terrys request, issued a check to him for con crete to pour the inner walls of the pool and the pool patio. This $3,500 check was only meant to be is sued after the concrete wor k was done, reports said, but the check was cashed and the concrete never ordered or poured. On Oct. 22, the cus tomer received a notice to o wner from Jahna Concrete that Terry had not paid for the concrete. At the other home on Jackson Heights Drive, the homeowner had contracted Terry last year to install a pool heater with accessories on an existing pool. He paid Terry $3,594.13 for the work, including parts and labor, on Nov. 11, 2013, arrest reports said.

BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING Highlands County has a new Citizen of the Year. Highlands County Commissioner Don Elwell was given the honor Thursday morning at the Highlands County United Ways annual breakfast and awards ceremony held at the Jack Stroup Civic Center in Sebring. Elwell is known both for his work at the commission and throughout county government as well as with local groups ranging from the Highlands Art League, to the Salvation Army to Heartland Idol. He seems to be involved in every aspect of Highlands County, said Sebring Mayor John Shoop, himself a former Citizen of the Year. Whether it is government related, volunteering on multiple boards or entertaining crowds with his humor and exceptional skills as an emcee. The commissioner called the honor tremendously humbling and said the award came as a complete surprise. I knew something was up, but I had no idea it was for the Citizen of the Year, Elwell said. Id ruled that out. When you look at the names on the list it really is like a Whos Who of founders in the community. Elwell said he realized they were talking about him during the presentation when they mentioned his emcee activities. Highlands County Area Director for United Way of Central Florida Kristin Handley said the Citizen of the Year selection comes through a committee process. We have a roundtable that sits down once a year and goes over the nominations and then we make our selection, she said. It is not a complicated process. Among the criteria used are candidates activities, achievements in the community and their impact on the local United Way efforts. Elwell serves as the United Way Employee Coordinator for the Alan Jay Automotive Network, where he is the director of marketing and public relations. Hes my lead person there, he leads the campaign, gets everything organized and takes care of things, Handley said. In fact, Alan Jay has always been in the top 10 of donators as long as they have been participating with us. Although the Citizen of the Year honor has been given out for some time, Handley said the Highlands County award dates back to 2003. It used to be for the entire tri-county region Polk, Hardee and Highlands because thats our United Way of Central Florida, she said. But then we started having one just for Highlands. The next United Way event will be the annual Day of Caring May 21. Volunteer teams from businesses and organizations will go out an help various United Way clients and partners with everything from landscaping to painting and even clerical work.Elwell named Citizen of the Year by United Way ELWELL BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING Boy Scout Troop 846 of Sebring got the chance to get up close and personal with up-and-coming Skip Barber racer Brandon Angel Saturday at the Sebring International Raceway. Angel, a 21-year-old Ocala resident, earned his Eagle Scout rank in 2009 and uses his Boy Scout experience to help bring the younger scouts into the world of racing. I started Scouts at the age of 13 when we moved back to the U.S. from the Philippines, said Angel. Scouts has been a big part of my life, just as racing has. Though Angel only became a professional racer one year ago, the Troop 172 member has been racing go-carts since the age of 8 and has remained active in the Eagle Scouts since 2005. Throughout the morning and afternoon, young Scouts participated in a number of activities related to the Skip Barber school, including driving simulators, ride-alongs and even waving the ags for the races. Wade Allison was plenty excited about his opportunity to be a part of a real race Saturday. I got to wave the checkered ag. It was really cool, said Allison. Ive never even been out to the race track before; this is my rst time here. The coolest part about it was when the cars would go by it vibrated the crows nest. It was really loud out there, too. A second scout, Max Carlisle, waved the ag at the 11:25 a.m. race. Three scouts were lucky enough to ride along in the Skip Barber pace car that signaled the start of the race. Matthew Andrews, Noah Allison and Julian Crozier hoped into the Mazda pace car just before the start of the second race and enjoyed their ride. This is something we are hoping and trying to adopt at each race we go to, said Angel. This is the rst time theyve allowed Boy Scouts out here to participate in anything like this. Angels father, Walter, said that Sebring is the test run. We wanted tot start here to see if it would work. We are working with the National Eagle Scouts Association to see if we can take it to future races and adopt a local troop at each race, Walter Angel said. Angels next stop is a F1600 Series race in Road Atlanta April 1113, where he is hoping to bring out another troop.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.Local Boys Scouts get taste of racing life Katara Simmons/News-SunBoy Scout Ronald McMahon drives a race car simulator Saturday at the Sebring International Raceway.

BUSINESS BY SAMANTHA GHOLARStaff WriterSEBRING For more than 30 years, the Prescott family has provided quality lawn and pest control services to the residents and businesses of Highlands County through their anchor business, Prescott Lawn and Pest Control Inc. Last spring however, the Prescotts felt another avenue was worthy of being part of the familys legacy and opened The Front Porch at Prescotts on June 1, 2013, exactly 31 years to the day after the Prescotts lawn and pest control company. The Front Porch stems from everything my mom loves; holidays, pots, yard decor, said Kelly Prescott Dressel (wife of NewsSun editor Scott Dressel). This is an extension of everything she loves. After acquiring their new building space on Alternate 27 behind the Sebring Southgate Publix shopping plaza, Kelly, her mom Debbie Prescott and brother Jady Prescott knew that their business has found its new home. When the building became available we just couldnt pass it up. We moved Prescott here two years ago and Front Porch came not long after that, Dressel said. The business employs six individuals, including the three family members. Jack Prescott, who started the business with Debbie, remains a huge part of the business even after his unexpected death in 2007. The red and yellow in our logo symbolizes my mom and dad, said Kelly. This is and always will be a family business. When the Front Porch came around last June, the family knew that the opportunity to add retail to their company would be a great asset and began working on putting the store together. Weve been doing well, said Debbie. Retail is different for us and we are still learning things every day. But this is an extension of Prescott, thats why we added it. Yard decor, collegiate items, wall art and colorful handmade items ll the space at the Front Porch, giving customers plenty to choose from. People are always surprised when they come in at all the things we have, Kelly said. One of the popular items is Debbie Prescotts handmade door wreaths, which are available for every season. People love Christmas wreaths, but when Christmas is over they still want to use them. I started making them for every holiday so people can hang them year round, she said. She takes special orders for any holiday or seasonal wreath for her customers. Other popular items include the solar-powered yard decor items and Tervis brand cups in every pattern from owls to Florida Gators. Those are a big hit, said Kelly. We carry a special type of Tervis, every store does. Tervis only allows certain stores to carry certain cups and patterns, that way each store has something different. We keep everything in the store that people would want. We try to have appropriate stock for any size yard or patio. Whether you have a small green space or a large yard, theres something for you here, Debbie Prescott said. The Front Porch at Prescotts is at 2719 Alt 27 South (CR 17 South) behind South Publix. Store hours are Tuesday-Friday 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturday 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. For special orders, lawn or pest control inquires, call 385-7264 or nd them on Facebook.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.

Of cials at the Sebring Regional Airport say they are delighted following the formal announcement that the Italianbased Tecnam Aircraft has established a U.S. customer service center and will operated from the industrial park there. Tecnam joins E-stone as the second Italian company to be established at the Sebring airport. Reportedly, the effort to land the rm began as many as ve years ago by the Highlands County Industrial Development Authority/ Economic Development Commission under thenExecutive Director Dan Murphy. The Tecnam facility is designed to cover the U.S., Central and South America and Canada for parts supply, sales and marketing. It eventually will provide the company with a base for nal assembly of aircraft for sales in those markets. We are working to be more proactive by making this investment in production, training, customer service and parts supply in the U.S., said Shannon Yeager, director of sales for Tecnam U.S. We plan to have maintenance training at the Sebring facility, as well. The Tecnam US Inc. Sebring customer delivery center, assembly facility and U.S. headquarters has been established in a 43,000-square-foot facility at the airport. Formerly used by the Leza Lockwood Corporation, it more recently was used by Sebring Aviation. Plans are to use about 21,000 square feet in the rst phase of operation. Tecnam is no stranger to the Sebring airport, having participated in the US Sport Aviation Expo for several years. This past January, company executives said they made a number of sales including a pair of their popular P2008 TC aircraft the 115-horsepower, turbocharged version of the P2008 LSA, featuring the Rotax 914. Tecnam had a strong showing at the Expo this year, with four aircraft on display, daily seminars showcasing the history of Tecnam in the world of aviation, as well as several manufacturers showcase ights showing off the ying capabilities of the Tecnam models. We are proud to be the home of the annual US Sport Aviation Expo and our motto the place to see, try, y and buy really does ring true, with Tecnam choosing Sebring as their showcase facility in North America, said Sebring Regional Airport Director Mike Willingham. Company of cials indicated the establishment of Tecnam US Inc. is a result of a signi cant investment that will include not only the new Sebring facility and personnel but will create an enhanced nationwide sales and support network offering a wide range of services.Tecnam Aircraft opens Sebring airport facility BY ROD LEWISNews-Sun CorrespondentLAKE PLACID Representatives from the Southern Florida District of Church of Nazarene, county and local of cials converged on the Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center Wednesday for the of cial groundbreaking of Grace Place and a new addition to the dining center. Grace Place is a 152bed dormitory that will be able to be divided into small pods for small groups, or a 152bed dorm, said Anthony Haney, Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center executive director. Haney went on to say that there are going to be two wings on the building, each one making up a 300-seat, multi-purpose auditorium. The original dream may have started in 1926, when Melville Dewey and his wife built the southern version of the Lake Placid Club, said Dr. Dennis Moore, Southern Florida District Advisory Board secretary. The club was to attract the brightest and best young people to advance new ideas and that would impact people. Moore went on to say that in the year just ending, revenue for the center approached $1.9 million, with 43,000 guests. Out of the 43,000, he said, more than 4,000 young people found Jesus Christ as their savior, which he related back to Melville Deweys dream. Grace Place was a result of a grant from Dr. Fred Bertolet and his wife, Grace, who led revivals all over the America. Shortly before his death, Bertolet bequeathed nearly $1 million to the Southern Florida District with the simple wish that an appropriate building be build to honor his late wife. The added dormitory space will augment the mission of the Center. The mission statement was to establish a base of godliness, Haney said. The vision statement that came of that was serving Jesus Christ by serving others. This summer, there will be approximately 40,000 visitors to the Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center. There will be about 8,000-9,000 youth and children for summer camps. Not only is the camp open for the campers, the facility is open to the public. Corporate events are available as are lunches and catering on and off campus. Haney estimates that the visitors will infuse approximately $3 million in revenue throughout Highlands County. There was also a groundbreaking ceremony for a dining area patio that will seat 200-250. The addition will blend in with the existing building, and will look like it has always been there. Haney estimated that this project will not begin until the fall because of the number of visitors that are expected during the summer.Grace Place continues Deweys dream in LPNew facility at Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center Rod Lewis/News-SunThe rst shovel breaks the ground for the coming Grace Place Dormitory at Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center on Wednesday.

A6 | NEWSSS U nN | SS unday, April 6, 2014 www.newssun.com NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEWIt is possible future historians will look back at our time and call it the Irratio nal Age. T ake the example the U. S. Supreme Court just set deciding in a 5-4 vote that it is unconstitutional to limit the number of candidates to whom a dona tion may be given by an interested par ty. The dollar limits per donation remain the same, but now donors may give to as many different candidates across the country as they choose, making it easier to spread money around. In addition, the Supreme Court has al ready decided that corporations are people too, so this ruling applies to them. W e think this is a mistake. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion and focused it narrowly. He said that the goal of campaign nanc ing reform should be to prevent quidpr o-quo corruption such as cash for an individual favor. Otherwise, he said, it vi olates First Amendment protections. W e wish Roberts and the court had tak en a more thoughtful approach, espe cially when it comes to granting human r ights to inanimate organizations. How can a corporation speak with one voice? Or have only one opinion? A corpora tion is a thing, not a breathing organism with feelings a conscience and ideas of its own. We think there is something else at work. As a newspaper, we value freedom of speech, and ght to protect it. We know an effort to monopolize the conversation when we see it. Being able to stand and express your self is a fundamental American right. A healthy democr acy requires the exchange of ideas. Spending money, however, to repeat the same political message over and over is not healthy at all. Its propagan da, plain and simple. The result of the Su preme Courts decision means those with the most money get to out-shout every one else. I ts ridiculous to think of corporations and unions as individual people. It is sil lier still to think that not being to throw money at ev ery candidate who may one day be in position to do you a favor is a vi olation of your constitutional rights. And it is completely irrational that the Supreme Court said all this is OK as fu ture historians will say.Free speech to the highest bidderLast weekend Don and I went to see Noah, a bigbudget lm that claimed to be based on the Bible story of Noah and the ark. The creators of the lm ad mitted to some artistic license, but insisted that the tale was tr ue to the Biblical account. I admit I went into the lm with warnings about it ringing in my ears. Many Bible believers trashed the lm for various reasons. My hope was that the things that were talked about were exaggerated. After all, the story of Noah is sketchy on some details. Films have al ways eshed out their Bible stor ies The Ten Com mandments took artistic license as well, and its a classic Biblical lm. S o I went to the lm wary, but hopeful. My rst sur prise was when Don and ar rived at the theater the 4 / p.m. showing was sold out. Obviously a lot of peo ple were coming to see this lm. W e managed to get in at 7 / p.m. and settled down to see Noah on the big screen. The good news: The mov ie isnt as bad as I thought it would be The special ef fects are pretty cool, the acting is w ell-done, and were this not purporting to be based on a true story it wouldve been an entertain ing couple of hours. B ut it does claim to tell the story of Noah. And therein lies my problem with the lm. Saying that Noah takes artistic li cense with the subject matter is like saying the Atlantic O cean is a body of water. Its much bigger than the words imply. It is true, for example, that the name God is not used in the whole lm. Instead, he is referred to as the Cre ator throughout. If that was the worst thing they did I could forgive them for it. Af ter all, I can buy they call G od by that name. He is, in deed, the Creator. B ut the changes they make are much more egre gious than what to call God. I n fact, God never directly speaks to Noah in the lm He communicates with the man through dreams and visions that Noah is forced to interpret. Quite different from the Biblical account, which has God giv ing Noah specic instructions, down to the type of wood he is to use and the dimensions of the ark. While Noahs oldest son, Shem, has a wife to bring into the ark, his young er sons enter the ark without mates. This directly contradicts the Bible account, which states that N oahs sons and his sons wives all went into the ark. This makes a lot more sense than the movie, where the problem of mates for Noahs other two sons is solved by Shems wife bear ing twin girls while on the ark. Those babies bring me to the most disturbing change the lm makes, that to the character of Noah himself. The Bible calls Noah a righ teous man. In the lm, this same man decides that it is the Creators will that all mankind be destroyed, in cluding his own family. When the twins ar e born, he decides he must kill them in order to ensure that the hu man race will die off. S ee what happens when you are forced to rely on visions? If God had been speaking directly to him like the Bible says this point wouldve been made clear. But Noah goes by what he thinks is best, though in the end he chooses to spare the children and comes around to the concept that man kind is to continue in the new world. Ther e is so much more wrong with this lm, but I dont have room to raise these points. Sadly, I cant recommend this lm if you are into Biblical epics. But if you are interested in the story of Noah, I can say this much: like so many other lm adaptations, the book is better. Go give it a read.Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Lets take a look at this suc cess. P resident Obama and the Democrats pushed through their signa ture domestic policy stating the Af fordable Care Act would cover every Amer ican. They have used the gure of million uninsured Americans. To date, Obamacare has then en rolled less than 2 percent of those uninsured Americans. Its working! exclaimed the Presi dent. The R and Corporation crunched the numbers and discovered only 858,000 people of the 7 million enrollees have actually paid their premiums, which is required to actually be covered. Its working! You will soon read that many of the applications in the ofcial White House count are actually duplicate and incomplete applications. The worst of this naively ambitious plan is beginning and the Democrats know it, with millions of Americans having their doctors and hospitals ex cluded from these government-designed insurance plans. D ebbie Wasserman-Schultz, a partic ularly virulent attacker against all crit icism of this failing program, actually said r ecently that there are no glaring problems with Obamacare. Administrators at Seattles Childrens Hospital told reporters they led stan dard requests for specialty care for 125 childr en through the Obamacare ex change. These include terribly sick childr en who will die without special ized procedures and medical treatments. Obamacar e ofcials only responded to 20 percent of those requests and de nied eight of them. P resident Obama promised his plan would require that all children have health care coverage. The hospital is currently treating the children but they cant keep doing so for long. Apparently the death panels are al ready at work. Its working! The New York Post reports, leading cancer centers including New Yorks Memorial Sloan Kettering are ex cluded by the largest plans. Californias state-of-the-ar t Cedars-Sinai cancer center isnt in any ObamaCare plan. Only a few plans include the Mayo Clinic. And if you want a doctor out side such networks, youll generally hav e to pay the full cost of care out of your own life savings. No glaring problems. Democrat Senator Harry Reid, an other crusader for Obamacare, has publicly told the countr y that all of these stories about people losing cov erage and doctors are lies. The P ost also reports on Michael Cerpok, a leukemia survivor in Foun tain Hills, Ariz. The ObamaCare law forced his in surer to kill (his insurance) plan for one that ts the law s rules. Now hell have to pay more for drugs, and his Mayo Clinic doctor is no lon ger in his network. Last year, his treatment bill was more than $350,000, but thanks to insurance his out-of-pocket was only $4,500. Now, to keep his doctor, the one who has kept him alive for seven years, Cer pok will have to pay $26,000 out of pocket. Mr. Cerpok is another of Sen. Harry Reids liars, like the kids with cancer losing their doctors and medical care. But then, Senator Reid has never cared much for such kids. The CEO of the Cleveland Clinic re ports three quarters of Americans who hav e signed up for Obamacare have seen their premium costs increase. In 2008, President Obama told you, We can cut the average familys pre mium by about $2,500 a year. K ids with cancer denied medical care, millions of families hammered with cost increases, millions losing their doctors and hospitals while Dem ocrats call these people liars and claim ther e are no glaring problems.

BY BARR YY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING More than a dozen people turned out Wednesday at a coun ty-owned clay pit north of A von Park to talk about the possibility of renting the facility. Of the approximately 15 people who turned out for the pre-bid tour, there were two ofcial entities represented: the Heart land Gun Club and Sebring-based Spray & Pray G uns and Ammo. The facility, once home to a BMX bicycle rac ing facility, has been suggested as a gun range site the b y owners of Boom Booms Guns & Ammo in Sebring. Jeri Canale and Steve Maribel, owners of Boom Booms, were not at the Wednesday tour, saying they already are well fa miliar with the site. H ighlands County com missioners last month called for r equest for pro posals to be issued for those inter ested in the site for any reason after rst asking for letters of in terest about turning the site into a gun r ange and getting two responses from the Heartland Gun Club and Boom Booms. Highlands County Parks and Recreation Director Vicki Pontius said it ap peared at this time that nobody is inter ested in re viving the BMX track. Although bids ar e set to be opened at 2 / p.m. on April 24 at the Highlands County Purchasing De partment, an addendum to the bid is slated to be released after April 11 to answer a number of ques tions that were asked at the meeting. One of the questions that came up was the boundary lines, Pontius said. One of the gentle men said they want to open a r ie range, so hes looking for a long stretch of space. For some reason, our site plan has a demar cation across it so actually the land does not go all the way to C ounty Road 17. Apparently, the area on the north side of the site had been used for park ing when the bike racers were there but is not included on the curr ent proposal. Pontius said the staff plans to get with the countys mapping depart ment to try and determine why the site has been de lineated. There were questions about drainage and wa ter retention at the site, said H ighlands County Purchasing Agent Dani elle Gilbert, who also was par t of the tour. There also were questions about permitting and about the building that is there now. Once the RFPs have been received, they will be looked over by an eval uation committee comprised of Ponitus. Highlands County Zoning S upervisor Linda Con rad and Highlands County R oad and Bridge Depart ment Director Kyle Green to deter mine whether or not they have met the list of requirements. The proposals are giv en points based on the cr iteria, Gilbert said. The committee then tal lies the scores and makes a r ecommendation. That recommendation is then given to the ad ministration, who then will take it to the county commission, which may reject any or all of the pro posals. N o date for that has yet been set.Gun range supporters gather at clay pitTour of facility raises a few questions for county staffTHOMA sS H H ULE nN Thomas Isaiah Hulen was born in Craven County, N.C. on June 6, 1948 to James Lee and O O zia MM anley-Hulen.

So if a jury had found him guilty on both charges, the judge would have had to throw out the lesser charge, he said. Fox was reported to be under the in uence at the time, and had ve passengers, two of them minors. All were treated and released at Highlands Regional Medical Center. Castillo said Fox had a trace of alcohol and marijuana in his system, which was not enough for a DUI manslaughter charge. However, he said, those trace amounts and reports that he was speeding and weaving through traf c prior to the wreck were enough to establish recklessness for a vehicular homicide charge. Castillo added that Fox had to be going fast to cross a curbed, uphill grass median and go airborne at the location of the crash. Fox wasnt charged until almost a year later on March 11, 2013 and wasnt booked into the Highlands County Jail until Feb. 3 of this year, on two counts of failing to appear for the felony offenses of vehicular homicide and driving without a valid drivers license. According to reports, police had trouble getting a witness statement and Fox, who was from Broward County, took a while to nd and charge. We had an outstanding warrant, but we couldnt locate him, Castillo said. PLEA FROM PAGE A1those storms a couple of weeks ago and we had a lot of wind. I got reports from some of our members that a lot of fruit hit the ground because of that, he said. Whatever stresses out the tree takes a greater toll on one infected by greening than it would on a completely healthy one. Determining the amount of fruit drop from year to year also has been a dif cult task. While growers do not keep such statistics, Royce said local groves are closely watched as a barometer of statewide production. Florida Ag Statistics is counting pieces of fruit throughout the year and you can even see their notations on the USDA reports regarding fruit drop, he said. Trees dropping part of their production is not a new phenomenon. Royce said that even under ideal conditions there usually is 5-10 percent of the crop that falls from the trees prematurely. That means a 20-25 percent drop actually represents only 10-15 percent above normal, ideal conditions. The numbers appear far better than last season, when it was estimated that fruit drop was as much as an unprecedented 40-45 percent. Erratic weather and greening were pointed to as culprits. For instance, weather last season was marked by severe temperature shifts. As this season heads into warmer months, ofcials worry that the rate of drop could get worse. That, apparently has to do with overlapping growth cycles. A lot of the guys have had multiple blooms, so when you look into the harvesting trucks youll see a lot of different pieces. Some are big orange ones, some are a lot smaller and not very orange, he said. The good news seems to be that the season evened out to help the upcoming Valencia orange harvest. February and March had a very uniform bouquet bloom. That could translate into a more consistent crop than the past years. Last year, there was bloom that was occurring from early February through as late as early May and therefore you had a lot of fruit that was in different stages of development, Royce said. Theres speculation that in itself created stress. The latest USDA prediction for the 2013-2014 harvest season is set to be released Wednesday. DROP FROM PAGE A1in February 2013 in La Jolla, Calif. They then took six teachers to the Florida conference in May of last year in St. Petersburg, then had the district host a regional conference Nov. 8-9 at Chateau lan in Sebring. More than 120 local teachers attended, including teachers from DeSoto and Okeechobee counties, Ervin said. They want to host another conference this October or November, and recruited Woodlawn Elementary School reading coach Cheryl Vermilye and Sebring High School International Baccalaureate teacher Holly Rapp to write $35,000 grant application to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the venue, food and supplies. With the grant, we want the numbers to grow, Vermilye said. We want to share (this) with everybody. Rapp said representatives from the Gates Foundation were blown away by what theyve seen from Highlands County. She loves how the program brings teachers out of their classrooms to share best practices in their schools and throughout the district. We all have great ideas, Rapp said. This is our forum. Each teacher who had attended the regional conference was asked to bring another teacher to Wednesdays event. Each school had a booth at the Sebring Middle Commons to explain how their teachers collaborate. School Board member Donna Howerton said the fact that teachers are talking about how to help each other is a great sign. Now theyre sharing across the grade levels, Howerton said. David Schuknecht, science teacher at Sebring Middle, said the conference helps remind teachers about why they became teachers. We get to see changes happen with students that we wouldnt see in other careers, Schuknecht said. His colleague, Josh McGhee, in his fth year teaching third grade at Memorial Elementary School, said he looked forward to hearing what other schools do. Aside from doing workshops to share effective teaching methods, schools use incentives. At Memorial Elementary, for example, public data boards showcase student and classroom progress to recognize those who do their best. Other strategies that stood out included Sun N Lake Elementary School, where students learn to nd symbolism and character motivation in stories so they will read with that direction in mind. Park Elementary School is teaching students to formulate their own questions. Avon Elementary School has math and science labs to help students apply what they learn. Lake Placid Middle School and Sebring High School both use WICOR, a system to focus on writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization and reading to help balance those skills. Lake Country Elementary School uses the Kagan Cooperative Structure, which gets students working with each other. At Sebring Middle, students are asked to work on classwork during normal social time, such as while having lunch, but there are incentives. Those with good grade averages may go to special events. TEACHERS FROM PAGE A1Investigators are treating this case as a homicide and are interested in speaking with anyone who may have seen what happened, she said. There has not been much to go on because of a language barrier in the neighborhood and fear of law enforcement. Deputies will not question witnesses about their immigration status, Hays said. They simply want to know what happened. Anyone with information is requested to contact Detective Nathan Coogan of the Sheriffs Of ce Criminal Investigations Unit at 863-4027341 or 863-402-7250. Anyone with information who wants to remain anonymous, and eligible for a cash reward is asked to contact Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477) or on the Internet at www. heartlandcrimestoppers. com.

Its frustrating because were play ing well, for the most part, designated hitter Cullen Lovett said. But its just been a little thing here or there thats hurt us. As was the case this night, culminating a week that saw Mondays loss to county rival Lake Placid and Thursdays 5-4 loss at district foe Lemon Bay. In this one, Josh Crouch was locked in a pitchers duel with Lions righthander Aaron Norman. Sebring got on the board in the third with Everett Hurst rocketing a frozen rope that onehopped the left-center eld wall but was hit so hard and ricocheted so quickly that he was held to a single. Eli White then laid down a sacrice bunt to move Hurst to second and one out later, Lovett sliced a single to left for the opening run. And that run held up as the innings progressed, with Crouch and the Streaks dodging a few bullets. With two outs and Jeff Woodard on second in the top of the fourth, Ryan Anderson hit a chopper halfway between the mound and the third-base line. Crouch swept in to snare it, but his off-balance throw pulled rst baseman Seth Cannady off the base. But Cannady alertly saw Woodard trying to advance to third and whipped it across the diamond, with David DeGenaro swiping the tag down for the third out. And in the fth, John Streaks overcome by Oviedo Dan Hoehne/News-SunCullen Lovett drove home two runs Friday night, but that marked all the Sebring production in a 4-2 loss to Oviedo at Firemens Field.OVIEDO4SEBRING2SEE SEBRING | A12 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Averaging 12 runs per game during the week, the Avon Park nine sure made things easy on their pitching staff. And it paved the way to a 3-0 record with Fridays 9-2 win over visiting McKeel Academy at Head Field. After Tuesdays 18-run explosion at Frostproof, the Red Devils tallied another nine in Thursdays 9-4 home win over LaBelle, courtesy of four Mykel Gordon RBI and a three-run homer from J.C. Cobb. It was more of the same Friday night, as the Devils also had a little payback in mind. It was exactly one month earlier, on Tuesday, March 4, that the Tigers scored six in the bottom of the seventh for a 7-6 win that gave Avon Park its lone district loss of the season. Southpaw starter Kenny McGrath kept McKeel scoreless through three and the Devils drew rst blood in the bottom of the third. With two out, Luis Mar tinez and Tyrone Perry drew consecutive walks. Gordon then singled sharply to left for the rst dent on the scoreboard. McGrath worked a scoreless fourth and his offense plated two more in the bottom of the frame. With one out, Trey Frazier walked and Kyle Thompson was hit by a pitch. An Alfred Brown single loaded the bases and Mar tinez then singled Frazier home. A Perry ground out scored Thompson and the lead stood at 3-0. McGrath walked the rst batter of the fth, but that was erased when a grounder to Gordon at rst was turned into a double play. But back-to-back singles marked the end of McGraths night as Per ry came on to get the last out.Red Devils keep on rollin Dan Hoehne/News-Sun lesMykel Gordon tallied ve hits and drove in seven runs in the Red Devils two late-week wins.AVON PARK9MCKEEL2 SEE DEVILS | A11 Dan Hoehne/News-SunBalloons were released as part of the pre-game ceremony Tuesday at SFSC, with Lauren Phillips parents on hand to be honored. BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comPhrases like a trying week or a rough week dont even begin to do justice to what the South Florida State College softball team went through. From a Thursday, March 27, loss at Hillsborough, to being awakened the next morning with the horrifying news that beloved teammate Lauren Phillips had been taken from them, to trying to regroup and stay strong through Tuesdays pre-game tribute to Phillips and honoring her family and then taking on conference rival Polk State. The team has nobly adopted the motto to Do it for 20, Phillips uniform number. The girls were obviously shocked. Lauren was a huge part of the team. Theyve described her as the glue that held the team together, assistant coach Heather Barnes said early in the week. From a coaches standpoint you cant even ask for a better player. She came to us as a walk on and worked her butt off and instantly earned a scholarship, Barnes continued. Her work ethic, her want to get better, and her overall positive attitude is something that is going to be missed. We are dedicating this season to her. She wanted to go to states so bad so were gonna ght to get there. Weve kind of been using the quote #doitfor20 as our motivation. But in such a whirlwind of tragedy and emotion, the words are often easier to say than to initially live up to.

A quick tap on the roof of the electric hunting cart and the pop of two rie shots and Jody Greene and Jeff Goeggle have taken down their rst hog of the night. Its one of hundreds they will kill this year; they bagged 420 last year. Goeggles tap on the roof of the cart signals he has spotted a hog, and he and Greene both shoot to ensure one of them hits the animal. Its a routine theyll repeat during approximately 200 hunts in 2014. You might call them hog wild, but they are just two of many local hunters who are part of a national trend of recreational hog hunting thats popularity has soared in recent years. Goeggle and Greene, who run Double G Hog Control in Monterey with Greenes wife, Tracy, have hunted hogs together for nearly three years for farmers and landowners who have problems with wild hogs rooting up their property. While they are happy to be of service to those whose land or crops are overrun by hogs, Goeggle and Greene enjoy hog hunting and dont charge for their services. The hunters generally stop at gas stations or other places after hunts and give away the hogs. The network of farmers and friends theyve created provides them with 150,000 acres in Mississippi and Louisiana to hunt anytime they want. Its fun to do, and its challenging, Greene said. Its something I can do with my family and friends, and its pretty exciting out there at night. Greene and Goeggle hunt during the day and also at night using nightvision goggles and ther mal scopes.Recreational hog hunting popularity soaringSEE HOGS | A11

The traditional season opener between Houston and Cincinnati was canceled and a total of 86 games were lost before the strike was settled. 1973 Ron Blomberg of the New York Yankees became the rst major league designated hitter. With the bases loaded in the rst inning, he was walked by pitcher Luis Tiant, but the Red Sox won 15-5. 1973 At the Oakland Coliseum, Tony Oliva became the rst designated hitter to homer. The Twins DH hit a two-run shot in the rst inning off of Catsh Hunter to Minnesota to an 8-3 win. 1974 Due to renovations at Yankee Stadium, the New York Yankees home opener took place at Shea Stadium. It was their rst home game outside Yankee Stadium since 1922. 1977 The Seattle Mariners played their rst regular-season game and lost 7-0 to the California Angels at the Kingdome. 1982 A freak storm that brought subfreezing temperatures and dumped heavy snow from the Northeast to the Midwest forced the postponement of American League openers in New York, Detroit, Chicago, Cleveland and Milwaukee, and National League openers in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. 2005 Brad Wilkerson hit for the cycle to lead Washington over Philadelphia 7-3. 2009 Tony Clark and Felipe Lopez each homered from both sides of the plate to lead Arizona to a 9-8 victory over Colorado. 2009 Emilio Bonifacio hit the majors rst in side-the-park homer on opening day since 1968, swiped three bases and had four hits in Floridas 12-6 victory over Washington. 2009 Alfonso Soriano hit his 50th career leadoff home run as Chicago beat Houston 4-2. 2012 Adam Dunn tied a major league record with his eighth opening-day home run. He led off the sixth inning for the Chicago White Sox when he pulled a ball into the second deck of seats in right eld off Texas starter Colby Lewis. Frank Robinson and Ken Griffey Jr. are the other major leaguers who have eight homers in openers. Todays birthdays: Alexi Amarista, 25; Bert Blyleven, 63.

Alex Gomez singled with one out and moved to third on a Frazier double to left. Thompson singled Gomez home and Browns base-knock brought Frazier in. Martinez hit a deep y to left-center, which brought Thompson home, and Gordon would single up the middle to bring Brown around for a 7-0 lead. The Tigers would scratch for two unearned runs in the top of the sixth, but Avon Park got those right back in their half. Gomez and Frazier both walked and Brown doubled to bring Gomez in. Frazier would soon come in on a passed ball to make it a 9-2 game. Which it would stay as Perry squashed any notion of another McKeel rally by retiring the side in order, with two strike outs, to end it. Now 15-3 overall, the Devils are 6-1 and sit alone atop the District 9-4A standings, two games ahead of Mulberry. And its the Panthers who are next on the docket as Avon Park heads to Mulberry Tuesday for their nal district game of the regular season.

South Florida plays at home again Monday night, with a 5 p.m. start against Pasco-Hernando.FORBES, PANTHERS STAY AHEAD OF FIRE The thermals pick up heat, and theres no way they can hide from them, Greene said. Goeggle and Greene have developed a system involving teamwork to effectively hunt hogs at night. Goeggle rides on the back of a Polaris hunting cart scanning the horizon through his thermal scope before moving his eyes to the farmland, looking for signs of rooting or a bright white spot, indicating heat from an animal. When he spots something, Goeggle taps on the roof of the cart and gives Greene whos wearing the night-vision goggles directions to the animal. Sometimes its an armadillo, a deer, maybe even a bear. But if it is a hog or a group of hogs, called a sounder, Goeggle and Greene determine who takes the rst shot, and then a second shot from the other hunter follows to ensure a kill. Goeggle and Greene dont want to give away all their secrets, but they say it takes perseverance and perfected techniques to hunt hogs. Hogs are highly intelligent and thrive in a variety of climates and conditions, which Greene and Goeggle say means they can be run off one spot only to pop up in another. The surge in popularity of wild hog hunting locally follows a national trend of hunting hogs recreationally. Some would argue the increased popularity of hog hunting came as a response to farmland and other property becoming overrun with wild hogs. Others, like Mississippi State extension associate Bill Hamrick, say the translocation and release of wild hogs for hunting is largely responsible for the pervasiveness of wild hogs, which number in the millions around the country. There have always been some pockets of them around, but it seems like in the past 10 years, its really gotten worse, Hamrick said. Wild hogs are considered nuisance animals in Mississippi and Louisiana and have looser regulations than traditional game. Landowners and leaseholders and any hunter with the landowner or leaseholders written permission may hunt nuisance animals year-round at any time of day or night with no caliber restrictions on the lands they own or lease in Mississippi. In Louisiana, wild hogs can be hunted year-round during the day. Nighttime wild hog hunting is allowed March 1-Aug. 31. Those loose regulations compared to regulations on other game are one of the main appeals to local hunters who like to hunt all year and practice their shot between deer, turkey, duck and other game seasons. Hogs are not Tres Atkins go-to game animal, but he does hunt them to stay sharp in between seasons. Theres no season on them, and theres no set limit, and its something for me to do in between deer and turkey season, he said. Hunter Billy Fitt was hunting coyotes when he came up on a group of hogs on a hunting trip years ago on Glasscock Island. Ive been hunting them basically my whole life, but I got real serious about it probably three years ago, he said. Fitt mainly hunts hogs using traps, occasionally with dogs. You have to be relentless, he said. Its not like deer hunting. It takes a lot of time, and they go nocturnal if you pressure them. Theyre unpredictable, too. They can be in one spot one day and then two miles from it the next day. But its a lot of fun when you get one.Information from: The Natchez Democrat, http://www. natchezdemocrat.com/ HOGS FROM PAGE A9 TIM REYNOLDSAP Basketball WriterMIAMI Corey Brewer hit one of two free throws with 1.8 seconds left in the second overtime, and the Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Miami Heat 122121 on Friday night.

Their run of good fortune, however, would go by the wayside in the seventh. Norman singled to start the frame, moved up to second and then to third on a sacri ce bunt. Crouch got Shane Miller to pop out to DeGenaro at third for the second out. But an error on a Cameron Peppiatt grounder allowed the tying run to come in and move the game into extras. But there would be just the one extra inning, as Oviedo burst through for three runs in the top of the eighth. Sebring would load the bases in the bottom half and get one run back on a Lovett sacri ce y. But that would be all the could muster as a frustrating week came to an end.

But it wasnt to be as the Eagles came back to win it and then took the nightcap as well. The results didnt get better in Thursdays twinbill either, as the team dropped both ends to Webber, but watching the games, a difference in the team was noticeable. In a hard-fought opener, South Florida held a 1-0 lead until the seventh, when an error opened the gates to a winning rally for the Warriors. The positive trend continued in the second game as the Panthers pushed it into extra innings before falling. And it is a positive feeling that the team had afterward. It was a really good game. We all nally came together and performed, third baseman Kala Thompson said. Instead of just saying do it for 20 we actually did it for her.

The late spring is delaying time on the elds for many Vermont high school sports teams. Montpelier High School boys baseball team had a home scrimmage scheduled for next week and the girls tennis team had a home match scheduled for Monday. But both events are being pushed back because spring has been slow to arrive. Baseball coach J.B. McCarthy says spring sports are tough, but after a string of mild winters that saw many teams practicing outside in March, this year is a reminder that weather rules. McCarthy says his baseball players can throw and hit inside, although they cant shag y balls. Senior player Zach Morrill says that can make practices more difcult, but hes more interested in getting to know his new team.Snow is keeping many spring athletes inside

LIVING BSunday, April 6, 2014 Photos courtesy of Getty Images Family Features As a parent, you make decisions ev ery day to keep your child safe and h ealthy, which include keeping your child up-to-date on vaccines to help pro tect against serious diseases. Y ou may wonder if the diseases that vac cines prevent are even a threat to your child, ho w they offer protection and why your child needs to get their shots at cer tain ages. Lear ning about vaccines will help you better understand why the disease protec tion they provide is so important for you and y our family. Germs, Germs EverywhereThere are many ways your child could be exposed to germs, like bacteria and viruses, that cause diseases. For example, germs could come from people coughing or snee zing around them or when they put toys in their mouths. When these germs get into your childs body through their eyes, nose, mouth, or open cuts they attack and multiply. This in vasion is called an infection, which is what makes y our child sick. Your childs immune system then has to work to ght it off. If your child has received a vaccine to protect him against a disease, it will help his immune system safely ght off the dis ease, and develop immunity. Vaccines act like or imitate, an infection. This imita tion infection does not cause illness, but instead, it causes the immune system to r eact in a way similar to how it does to a real infection. As a re sult, your childs immune system will create cells to recognize and ght the vaccine-preventable disease in the future. This pr otection is called immunity.Immunity Stops OutbreaksImmunity is important to protect your child against vaccine-preventable diseas es, like whooping cough also known as per tussis and chickenpox, both of which still occur in the United States. If people stopped vaccinating, even the few cases of the vaccine-preventable dis eases that dont occur as commonly in the U nited States, like measles, could very quickly become tens or hundreds of thou sands of cases. S ome of these diseases are still com mon in other parts of the world. Y ou may think this isnt a problem if you dont travel to these countries, but your child could come into contact with inter national travelers anywhere in your community. Kids that are not fully vaccinated and ar e exposed to a disease can become seriously sick and spread it through a community. To stop the spread of a disease, the ma jority of a community has to be immunized against that disease. When the majority of the community has the safe, pr oven protection of the vaccine, the out break doesnt get the opportunity to keep spr eading. Timing Is EverythingWhen you vaccinate your child according to CDCs recommended schedule, you ar e providing him with the best protection early in life, before he is exposed to lifethreatening diseases. This recommend ed schedule is designed to protect infants and childr en by providing immunity when they are suscep tible to diseases The con sequences of these diseases can be very ser ious, and even life-threatening, for in fants and young children. The CDC sets the U.S. childhood immu nization schedule based on recommendations from a group of medical and public health exper ts called the Advisory Com mittee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). This gr oup carefully studies all safety and effectiveness data to make recommenda tions about vaccines. The ACIP also looks at ho w severe the disease is, and the num ber of children who get it when there is no v accine. Vaccines Give You the Power to ProtectImmunizations have helped to greatly improve the health of children in the U nited States. By continuing to vaccinate your baby according to the recommend ed immunization schedule, you are giving him the best protection against 14 serious childhood illnesses before he is two y ears old. To learn more about immunizations, visit the CDC online at www.cdc.gov/vac cines/parents or call 800-CDC-INFO. How to stop diseases before they start Stress less at your next shot visit Even though you know vaccines are protecting your baby against diseases, it doesnt make it less stressful for you to see your little one get shots. F ortunately, there are simple ways you can support your child before, dur ing and after shots.Before Getting Shots %  Read any vaccine materials you receive from your childs health care professional and write down questions. %  P ack a favorite toy or book, and a blanket that your child uses regularly for comfort.FOR OLDER CHILDREN %  Be honest with your child. Explain that shots can pinch or sting, but that it wont hurt for long.At the Doctors Office %  Ask the doctor the questions you wrote down ahead of time. %  Sit the child upright on your lap. %  Distract and comfor t your child by cuddling, singing or talking softly. %  Ask your child s doctor for advice on steps you can take to comfort your child at home.FOR OLDER CHILDREN %  Take deep breaths with your child to help blow out the pain. %  P oint out interesting things in the room to help create distractions. %  T ell or read stories. %  Suppor t your child if he or she cries. Never scold a child for not being brave.After the Shots %  Review information your doctor gives you about the shots, especially the Vac cine Information Statements or other sheets that outline which side effects might be expected. %  Use a cool, wet cloth to reduce any redness, soreness or swelling from the injection. %  Give your child lots of liquid. It s nor mal for some children to eat less during the 24 hour s after getting vaccines. %  P ay extra attention to your child for a few days. If you see something that concerns you, call your doctor.

My father-in-law, John, has always been a man of extremely few words with me. He most ly just ignores me when I m around. I have men tioned it to my husband and mother -in-law over the years, and they say hes just weird. Last year, my broth er-in-law married a nice woman, Donna. It turns out that John talks just ne with her. Hes not overly chatty, but hes friendly and polite. They had a 20-minute con versation on Christmas E ve, and I dont remem ber ever exchanging more than thr ee sentences with the man. Im naturally so ciable and easygoing, and I don t know why John would treat me so rudely for so long. Of course, Im jealous. I would trade the father-inlaw I have had for the one Donna has in a heartbeat. Im so hurt and angry that I nd it difcult to be in the same room with him now. I am seeing a thera pist, which helps, but Im still not sur e how to get over this or how to pro ceed. Can you offer me some advice? LIKE IM NOT HEREDEAR LIKE: Ill try. There could be any num ber of reasons why your father -in-law has been unable to connect with you, and I can think of at least one that might have nothing to do with you. Has it occurred to you that this may have some thing to do with the way he feels about y our hus band? Sometimes the negativ e feelings a par ent has toward a child can spill o ver onto the spouse. That might ex plain his warmer attitude to ward your sister-in-law. However, if thats not the case, then you will have to accept that peo ple dont always have the same lev el of chemis try with everyone and y our father-in-law isnt being intentionally hurt ful. I have experienced this and if you think about it, Im sure you probably have, too. Im glad youre see ing a therapist, although I hope the r eason isnt your father-in-law. If be ing around him is uncomfortable for you, then limit the time y ou spend with your in-laws. Thats what Id do. DEAR ABBY: Over the past 35 years I have saved all the cards, letters and photographs sent to me by friends. I thought it would be fun to make them into scrapbooks and give them back to those friends one day. Now that I nally have the time to organize them all, Im not so sure. They are pre-Facebook. There are lots of letters about their pregnancies, birth announcements, childrearing experiences and holiday letters. Can you ask your read ers if they would welcome something like this or should I toss them all? Its time to clean house. UNSURE IN THE WESTDEAR UNSURE: Ill put the question out there, but the people who real ly should answer are the fr iends for whom youre thinking of creating those scrapbooks. Speaking for myself, I think they would be priceless gifts, but I cant answer for everyone.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as J eanne Phillips, and was found ed by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Jeremy Wade brought a tank with a black piranha and a candiru to a recent appointment. Wade hosts Animal Planets River Monsters, the networks most popular series, where he goes around the world to nd ugly and often legendary creatures that lurk in murky waters. River Monsters begins its sixth season tonight at 9 p.m. with a story on a 1981 shipwreck in the Amazon. Much of the seasons stories are set in the Amazon, hence the piranha and candiru. Toothy piranha you already know about them. The candiru? You dont want to. The tiny, eel-like creature has been known for very unpleasant in ltrations into humans. Unlike many River Monsters episodes, where the sherman Wade hunts for creepy creatures, Sundays story about the Sobra Santos is a mystery. The overcrowded ship sank at a particularly inopportune time and location. It was pitchblack, and the ship wrecked in an eddy near a sh processing plant that attracted a hungry and vicious type of cat sh. Some 200 people were killed, and many body parts of victims were missing. The cat sh are known to feed on human remains.River Monsters returns for 6th season

CROSSWORD SOLUTION ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT FRAZIER MOOREAP Television WriterNEW YORK David Lettermans departure from the late-night realm wont just end an unmatched run on television. It also will close the book on an era reaching almost to the birth of TV. During a taping of Thursdays edition of Late Show, Letterman startled his audience with the news that he will step down in 2015, when his current contract with CBS expires. He speci ed no end date, saying he expects his exit will be in at least a year or so, but sometime in the not too distant future 2015, for the love of God, (band leader) Paul (Shaffer) and I will be wrapping things up. What hell be wrapping up is three decades on the air the longest tenure of any late-night talk show host in U.S. television history since he launched Late Night at NBC in 1982. But more than that, hell be ending a lineage of late-night hosts who pioneered talk and humor in the wee hours Johnny Carson, of course, and, before him, Jack Paar and especially Steve Allen. Ironically, they were all on NBC, the network that denied Letterman the Tonight Show crown he sought and, after he lost out to Jay Leno, prompted him to pitch his tent at CBS as Lenos rival. Referring to CBS chairman Leslie Moonves as the man who owns this network, Letterman told viewers Thursday, I phoned him just before the program, and I said, Leslie, its been great, youve been great, and the network has been great, but Im retiring. Along with his network, Letterman thanked all of the people who have worked here, all of the people in the theater, all the people on the staff, everybody at home thank you very much. What this means now, he cracked, is that Paul and I can be married. Since premiering with Late Show in 1993, Letterman, who turns 67 next week, has reigned at Broadways Ed Sullivan Theater, a historic venue nearly a century old that was famously home to The Ed Sullivan Show. The Los Angeles-based Leno, 63, retired from The Tonight Show this year, clearing the way, not by his choice, for Late Night host Jimmy Fallon to move up to that TV institution. In contrast to Leno, Lettermans leave-taking appears to be his choice. For 21 years, David Letterman has graced our networks air in late night with wit, gravitas and brilliance unique in the history of our medium, Moonves said. Its going to be tough to say goodbye. Letterman, who was a radio talk show host and local TV weatherman, moved to Los Angeles in the 1970s and, among his early gigs, was a writer and performer on a summer variety show and a member of the comedy troupe of a short-lived program starring Mary Tyler Moore. In 1980, he hosted an NBC morning show, which lasted only ve months while winning two Emmy awards. Two years after that, he was turned loose with Late Night, where he clicked. A generation later, Letterman will leave with an unparalleled comic legacy of weirdness, laserfocused sarcasm and an ironic sensibility that saturated the culture. (Letterman-esque may not be in any dictionary, but his fans know what it means.) Meanwhile, the famously private Letterman, a true product of his Midwest upbringing, gave the world an occasional glimpse into his inner life in ways that were as notable for their intensity as they were for their rareness. Viewers will never forget the real-life drama surrounding his quintuple heart bypass and his triumphant return to the air in February 2000, when he brought onstage the doctors and nurses who had saved him. He was nearly in tears as he thanked them. A week after the Sept. 11 attacks, he delivered a riveting, from-the-heart monologue, connecting with his viewers in their shared mourning and disbelief.Letterman announces plans to retire in 2015 MCTDavid Letterman, who has been hosting Late Show on CBS since 1993 and was on NBC for 11 years before that. Thursday, he announced that next year will be his last on the air. Wrapping things up The Associated PressTen memorable quotes from David Letterman, who announced hes retiring from Late Show on Thursday: I think the longer we just sit here, the more uncomfortable it will make Jay. Letterman after sharing awkward silence with Conan OBrien following the fellow talk show hosts mix-up with Jay Leno in 2012. Youre going to be sick for weeks. You wont be out of the egg for a month. Letterman to Lady Gaga after the outlandish pop star put his notes in her mouth during an appearance in 2011. The creepy stuff was that I have had sex with women who worked for me on this show. Now, my response to that is yes I have. I have had sex with women who worked on this show. Would it be embarrassing if it were made public? Perhaps it would, especially for the women. Letterman addressing an extortion scandal that led him to bare his in delities on the show in 2009. Joaquin, Im sorry you couldnt be here tonight. Letterman to Joaquin Phoenix after the Walk the Line stars bizarre 2009 interview in which he claimed he was dropping acting to become a hip-hop musician. This doesnt smell right. This is not the way a tested hero behaves. Somebodys putting something in his Metamucil. Letterman after Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain canceled his appearance at the last minute in 2008. Howd you like being in jail? Letterman to Paris Hilton following her prison time in 2001. If you didnt believe it before and its easy to understand how you might have been skeptical on this point if you didnt believe it before, you can absolutely believe it now: New York City is the greatest city in the world. Letterman during his monologue on his rst show back after the Sept. 11 attacks in 2001. While I was gone, I had quintuple bypass surgery on my heart. Plus, I got a haircut. Letterman during his monologue on his rst show after heart surgery in 2000. I cant thank you enough for that. Letterman after Drew Barrymore ashed her breasts to him on his birthday in 1995. I wanna thank you folks for coming in for this run-through show. Thank you very much. This, of course, will never see the light of day. You wont miss a thing tonight.

In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what esh can do unto me. It is in the midst of lifes storm that God lets us glimpse Him and worship Him as we never can otherwise. We sometimes get in an emotional storm because God wants to hear us say what David said: What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. When you are in the shadows and you see no way out, you have been taken there for a purpose, and that purpose is entirely about your view of Him. Its only when you realize Hes all you have that you discover Hes all you need. Be Blessed! Please support the above businesses. They have made this page possible. RELIGION Have you ever picked up a book and decided to read it because the cover caught your eye? Or vice versa? Since the cover is the rst thing you see, its important in attracting readers. Smart publishers seek the right artistic design to draw us in. However, the contents far surpass the cover. If whats inside doesnt hold your attention, the beauty of the cover is lost. When we published a collection of my columns in a devotional-style book, I asked myself what I wanted the reader to take away from time spent between its pages. I wanted them to be inspired to know their Creator and experience Gods peace, joy, tranquility, hope and rest; to live expectantly in his presence. So, when a photo I had taken some years before came to mind, I quickly located it and knew I had found my cover. A tranquil lake scene with mountain backdrop and a Japanese maple in full color gracefully leaning toward the lake quietly spoke to what was inside. Isnt it the same with each of us? Arent we books that some people read by just looking at us from the outside? Perhaps, were judged too swiftly before they get to know us. Or, just maybe we belie what is inside by putting on a good front. In either case, its good to consider that if we are Christians, our cover and content should match and be a re ection of the One we call Lord. We will not achieve perfection in this sinful world, but we should de nitely not be practicing sinful behaviors. Rather we should seek to please God with our livesour choices. Meeting with the Lord through prayer and Scripture reading allows his thought patterns to become ours. Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth, says 2 Timothy 2:15, NKJV. Growing in our faith chokes out the weeds that would mar the garden of our lives. When our son became a Marine, he had a code of ethics he must live by. Anyone seeing him in uniform knew what this courageous young man stood for. Recently, I saw a bumper sticker that gave us both shared laughter. It said, I may look harmless, but I raised a U.S. Marine. Sometimes a humble exterior will house a courageous spirit! Lets be open minded when looking at others while doing our best to rightly re ect our Lord from the inside out.

LEANNE ITALIEAssociated PressNEW YORK No rent collection while in jail, double the dough for landing on Go and clean out Free Parking if your luck takes you there are among ve made-up Monopoly rules Facebook fans voted in for future editions of the board game. Several thousand people weighed in on house rules over 10 days of recent debate and a year after Hasbro Inc. added a cat token and retired the iron in a similar online stunt aimed at keeping the 79-year-old game fresh. Our goal is to stay current and deliver Monopoly in a way that they want to engage with it and that means sometimes being new and having modern takes on the brand, said Jonathan Berkowitz, vice president of marketing, ahead of Fridays house rules announcement. New means old all over again in this case since house rules are often passed on through generations. Some casual players may have thought a few of the 10 in the running before debate ended Thursday were already in the ofcial rule book. And some, even regular players, might not have heard of others. Did you know some people play that moms get out of jail for free? Always. No questions asked. That one didnt make the cut. Nor did buying houses for a property without an actual monopoly (a complete color set of properties), or starting the game by placing half of all the money on the game board for a cash-grabbing freefor-all on the count of three. Hasbros house rules debate came after the company received results of a survey showing nearly 70 percent of 1,000 respondents reported never having read all Monopoly rules and 34 percent said they had made up rules more than once. The winning house rule for landing on Go means players get 400 Monopoly dollars instead of the of cial 200. As for Free Parking, of cial rules call for absolutely nothing to happen when a player lands there. Under the house rule, any taxes and fees collected are thrown into the middle for a lucky someone who lands on that corner square. Rounding out the ve winners are players must travel around the board one full time before they can begin buying properties, and collecting 500 bucks for rolling double ones. To appease hardcore players not interested in new rules, the Pawtucket, R.I., company will put the winners into a special House Rules Edition to be released in the fall and add them to classic Monopolys game guide next year as unof cial. There are a lot of Monopoly purists who want to play by the classic rules and dont want to change it, but we love the idea of there being some optional rules in there that can mix up the game a little bit, Berkowitz said.No rent from jail, bonus for snake eyes among 5 Monopoly house rules fans pick for new set New house rulesMCTLanding on Go will get you 400 Monopoly dollars instead of 200 under new house rules picked by fans. DARLENE SUPERVILLEAssociated PressWASHINGTON Spring has sprung at the White House and soon the vegetables will, too. With lots of helping hands on Wednesday, Michelle Obama replanted her fruit and vegetable garden on the South Lawn. New this year is a pollinator garden, an area with a variety of owers that were chosen to help encourage the production of bees and Monarch butter ies to help spread pollen, Mrs. Obama told about two dozen students from four local schools who were invited to help with the sixth annual garden planting. Were going to plant all kinds of owers that attract bees and butteries, which is not going to make the Obama girls happy because they dont really like bees, she said of her daughters, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12. But bees are good. Bees are a good thing. Other additions to the garden are oats, speci cally a variety known as Lincoln Oats, and a paw paw tree. The paw paw fruit is native to the eastern part of the country and has a soft, orange esh that tastes like the mash-up of a banana and a mango. Mrs. Obamas planting effort also was aided by the founders of FoodCorps, which is part of the AmeriCorps national service program, and six of its volunteers. First lady plants White House garden for spring ANNE DINNOCENZIOAP Retail WriterNEW YORK J.C. Penney is hoping that some supermodel magic will win over shoppers in the lingerie department. The beleaguered department store chain is launching an exclusive lingerie collection in the U.S. with a partnership with Elle Macpherson, who along with Christy Turlington, Cindy Crawford and others de ned a new generation of supermodels in the 1980s. The collection will be in 300 of Penneys 1,100 stores starting April 11. Penney says it will wait to see how the brand fares before deciding whether to roll it out to its other stores. The collection, called The Body by Elle Macpherson, which refers to her nickname, offers bras and panties in mostly cotton. Its emphasis is on the smoothest, most precise t that can be worn every day. The collection builds on Macphersons lingerie business that she founded in 1990.Penney teams up with Macpherson for lingerie

Tue. Today Mon. Tue. Rain and thunderstorms will slowly move from south to north near the Gulf Coast today. Storms will stretch from near Houston to near Savannah; a couple could contain gusty winds. The biggest impact will be heavy, potentially ooding rainfall. Florida will be the only state in the South to escape the wet weather; it will be humid, though. Farther north, high pressure will protect the mid-Atlantic, Ohio Valley and Northeast from any weather risks. It will be mostly sunny and seasonably warm across those regions.
