First on the agenda will be a board discussion of published reports regarding the City of Avon Park and the Town of Lake Placid and their investigation into the hauling of solid waste to the Okeechobee land ll instead of using Highlands Countys facility. The City of Avon Park has requested any issues of objections by commissioners to be provided to them so they in turn can be given to city council members when the issue comes up for discussion there. Most recent gures show that Avon Park spent some $282,398 in tipping fees at the Highlands County land ll between March 1 of last year and Feb. 28 this year. Lake Placid totaled up $137,062 in fees over the same period. Commissioners also are slated to hear from County to talk military air zones, city garbage BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING School board members had positive news from a recent trip to Tallahassee to talk up the districts plan for a halfcent sales tax referendum. Board members Donna Howerton and Jan Shoop went to the State Legislature on March 1920 to speak with Representatives Ben Albritton and Cary Pigman as well as Senators Bill Galvano and Denise Grimsley. Both Howerton and Shoop said Legislators support half-cent school taxHowerton, Shoop take sales tax pitch to Tallahassee BY SCOTT DRESSELEditorWhen the weather heats up for spring, it puts a series of things in motion. The most noticeable, of course, is the snowbirds starting to make their way back up north. But closer to the ground, and at a much slower pace, there is another migration of sorts under way gopher tortoises are on the move. As the weather gets warmer, every reptile in the state gets out and about. Thats what they do. Theyre cold-blooded, so they all move, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) spokesman Gary Morse said. A basic need drives the tortoises to venture out food. Tortoises stay under ground in their burrows when its cold out and they come out looking for food when it warms up, Morse said. The FWC wants residents to be aware that gopher tortoises are out and about so they can help protect the creatures, which can live up to 60 years and are a vital part of the ecosystem. They are what we call a keystone species. Other species use their burrows for protection ... against heat, against water, against the cold and against other predators. They are a very important key in keeping the wildlife system sustaining, Morse said.Katara Simmons/News-SunA sign near the entrance of Highlands Hammock State Park cautions drivers to watch out for wildlife on the move.

Call 863-446-2878 TERESA STEPZINSKIThe Florida Times-UnionJACKSONVILLE Whether its Yogi and Boo Boo wandering through neighborhoods, deer feast ing on garden veggies, raccoons slipping through the doggie door or squirr els moving into the attic, wild life and people in Florida shar e the same space more often than not. People and wildlife are living in closer proxim ity now more than ever, said E lizabeth Fleming, se nior Florida representative for D efenders of Wildlife, which has a program to help people co-exist with wildlife. That means many Flori da residents have stories to tell about close encounters with wildlife Just ask Roger Gannam of Jacksonville. The morning after Gan nam cooked burgers on his backyar d grill last Au gust, an uninvited guest sho wed up at the familys Barrington Oaks home off Craven Road near Beau clerc Elementary School on the S outhside. A lean black coyote chomped, tugged and shredded chunks of Gan nams grill cover likely hoping to nd some lefto vers. Stunned at the sight, Gannams wife and 8-year-old daughter watched from safety in side the home as the predator, which in Florida generally weighs about 20 to 35 pounds tore at the grill cover several minutes be fore loping away in defeat. Im never going out side again, said Gannams daughter fear cr eep ing into her voice as her mother captur ed the inci dent on video. In the eight y ears the family has lived at their home, it was the rst time a coyote came calling although raccoons, foxes, armadillos, rab bits, eagles and osprey visit from the woods nearby, G annam said. Coyotes roam all 67 counties statewide. A coy ote in the backyard might not be r outine but its not uncommon. We gured it was just passing through. howev er, Im not so sure, said G annam, who believes the coyote is back after he heard a very distinctive barking, whining, yipping and howling coming from his backyard about 2 / a.m. late last month. The commotion went on for several minutes. Gan nam said it matched recordings of wild coyote calls that he found on the Internet. The coyote visits left him alert but not over ly alarmed. I got pretty comfort able after doing some research that they are rarely a threat to humans, and usually not to pets And I think it has plenty to eat in the woods, though that doesnt quite explain why it went after my grill, Gan nam said, W ildlife authorities, however, caution that sev eral coyote attacks on dogs and cats hav e been report ed in Florida over the past few y ears. Reclusive and rare ly seen, Florida panthers br eed in the states south ern tip. Experts say a few y oung male panthers have traveled as far as North east Florida. And one was ev en documented as far north as Central Georgia near the Alabama line. But smaller, elusive bobcats live and breed here. A bobcat sought refuge from the heat beneath the wooden deck of Bill Gore schaks home in River Oaks P lantation in St. Johns County. The animal ed when Goreschaks teenage son, David, came out onto the deck. My son was on top of the deck at the top of the stairs and the bobcat was right under him under neath the stairs, and skittered across the grass about 25 feet then stopped at the edge of the grass and looked back at him, Goreschak said. That was about 18 months ago. But the bob cats been back, he said. We saw it about six months ago. It was on the boardwalk out to our creek. It was probably about 150 feet from our house, Goreschak said. Brenda and Darrell Shields are accustomed to wildlife visiting their Jacksonville Beach home. Their yard is like an oa sis for creatures great and small with its fr eshwater pond, broad-limbed oak trees and myriad plants adjacent to the neighbor ing marsh, woods and Intracoastal Waterway. O tters sun themselves on the couples dock. Pos sums, armadillos and raccoons are at home amid the many plants Song birds overhead in the trees. Owls snowy egrets, king shers, herons and wood stor ks line the bank of the pond. The couple keep the yard as natural as possi ble so wildlife will feel at home We dont try to make them pets. We want them to be wild animals. Were cultivators of nature and were glad we can help them have a place to live, Brenda Shields said. The couple recently res cued a snowy egret that nearly dr owned while sh ing in their pond. A turtle had gr abbed the egrets leg to pull it beneath the wa ter as rain poured down. S truggling for its life, the egret was exhausted and covered with weeds, leaves and twigs oating in the pond. The Shields eased their boat out to it then brought it to shore where they rinsed clean with barely warm water. They kept the bird warm with a towel and wash cloth then caught some minno ws from the pond and put them in a dish near the egret, which perked up at the sight. When a minnow opped out onto the oor, Shields gently fed it to the egret. By morning, it had recov ered and when the couple r eleased it, the egret ew up into a nearby tree and then away, she said. Habitat loss due to de velopment means wildlife and human inter actions are more frequent. Consider Floridas black bear, said Janet Larson, program chairwoman of the Sierra Club Northeast Florida Group. Bears have been com monly seen in what is now N ocatee because its con nected generally to larg er rural/wild lands to the south and w est, said Lar son, adding its logical ther e could be more hu man-bear encounters ther e in the future. Urbanization of rural ar eas means roads are built that intersect wildlife tr av el areas meaning animals can t readily cross from one section of habitat to another. Wildlife corri dors such as tunnels under highways ar e expensive. Encounters between Floridians, wildlife increaseRed Huber/Orlando Sentinel/MCTInga Bateman holds a tabelt with a picture she recently took of a black bear in Longwood last year. As the bear population in central Florida increased so did human encouters with the creatures. Most made of fun social media posts and stories but recently some have turned violent including Bateman and her dogs being chased by a bear which later pressed its paw on her front window.

www.newssun.comSunday, April 13, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A5 NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEW YOUR VIEWSWe thank the Avon Park City Council for recognizing the importance of remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., one of this countrys great heroes. Dr. King should be admired by all for the courage and humanity he showed as he led by example during the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 60s. On the one hand, we think renaming Memorial Field in Kings honor is an excellent idea. The site already has a history of afterschool programs and organized sports. With vision and cooperation it can be grown into a vital neighborhood center for children a place worthy of Dr. King. On the other hand, we are disappointed in the council taking the easy way out. Yes, renaming Memorial Field is a genuine tribute, but it wasnt what they were asked to do. Citizens wanted to name a street after King like a lot of communities did a long time ago. That request, however, ruf ed feathers. First it was because the city didnt want to dishonor somebody by taking away a street already named after a gure from the citys past. We agreed with that. But there are plenty of other streets with no historical names tied to them. Then some city of cials said they were worried about the hassle for people having to change addresses. In reality however, thats not an overwhelming obstacle. The necessary paper work is a one-time, short-term effort. And as to costs, weve checked and address changes are considered a business expense, which means they are tax deductible. Law enforcement agencies also played a part, expressing concern that because there would be two streets named after King in the county there could be confusion during emergency communications. We are not sure this is the problem emergency responders say it could be. If one street is called a boulevard, simply call the other an avenue. A quick look at a county map shows there are plenty of streets with similar names. For example, we have a Maple Avenue, a Maple Drive, a Maple Lane, a Maple Road and a Maple Street, and responders seem to be capable of distinguishing between them just as they can already tell the difference between Lark Avenue, Lark Place and Lark Street or Austin Drive, Austin Road and Austin Avenue. If Memorial Field was good enough to be named after Dr. King, then so was Memorial Drive. In the end, we do not have a clear idea of why the city council copped out. We hope this issue is revisited again in the future. In the meantime, we urge the Community Redevelopment Agencys Southside Advisory Committee to lead the way in making Martin Luther King Jr. Field a place to remember for itself.No good choicesReading the April 10th letters to the editor, I have come to the conclusion that Florida has little or no choice in picking a worth while governor. The candidates to date are the incumbent, Mr. (Rick) Scott, and the challenger being Mr. (Charlie) Crist. Mr. Ludacer, in his letter, decries of how Mr. Scott earned his personal wealth. He refers to Mr. Scott as an economic chameleon. Mr. Carmonys letter tells about his staggering out-of-pocket expenses for his wifes surgery while being insured under The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Then we have Charlie Crist, former Governor of Florida. He has been a Republican, an Independent, a Democrat and an advocate for Obama and Obamacare. Referring back to Mr. Ludacers letter, I would classify Mr. Crist as a political chameleon. Therefore, my statement about poor choice when it comes to choosing a governor.DICK FORDSebringShould be ObamacaresWhy do the republicans referring to the Affordable Heath Act, use the derogatory term Obamacare? In their ignorance they even misspelled it; the correct spelling should be Obamacares! Remember the onerous Bush Prescription Drug Plan? It was written by and for the drug companies, one of the biggest nancial contributors to the Republican party. The Affordable Care Act closes the Part D doughnut hole, the gap in drug coverage during which people with Medicare must pay the full cost of their prescriptions out of pocket. That means the drug companies lose money and that equals less money in the pockets of Republican politicians. So to borrow a line from Paul Harvey now you know the rest of the story.SANDY OLEESKYSebring LETTERS TO THE EDITORShoulde be 250 words or less and must contain the writers full name, address and telephone number for veri cation.

Yes, I am a geek). My grandmother used to send us boxes of comics that we would read and reread, and sadly, unthinkingly throw away. (I try not to think about how I couldve funded my sons college education if Id just been a little more careful). Among the comics I spent time reading were the Archie series about Archie Andrews, the kind redhead who lived in Riverdale and had adventures with his pals. His companions included the well-to-do Veronica Lodge and the plucky Betty Cooper, both of whom vied for his romantic attention. For the most part, the Archie series was a wholesome one. It was funny, but sometimes drifted into more serious subjects. Overall, the comics were a break from the real world. I havent really followed the series as an adult. There is only so much time in my day, and so much I want to read. Somewhere along the way, like many, I fell out of the habit of reading Archie. So I was surprised to learn that there is a series out there that takes the gang past high school into adulthood. Life With Archie was a title revived in 2010 that examines Archie and companys life as grownups. Apparently the creators of the comic didnt want to actually choose between his girlfriends so they have written parallel universes one where Archie marries Veronica and another where he weds Betty (I admit that if asked to choose Id vote for Betty, but thats me). These stories take different directions, and according to the Wikipedia article I read, has somewhat fallen into soap opera territory. But that wasnt the biggest surprise to greet me concerning the all-American boy. According to an article I read on www.foxnews.com, the current owners/writers of the Archie franchise, theyve decided to do something dramatic in the series next-to-last issue kill off the iconic character. The Fox News article linked to an article on www. nypost.com, which gives more detail on the decision. According to Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater, son of the characters creator John Goldwater, showing Archies death is a natural conclusion to the series. I couldnt nd much detail about what the storyline will entail except that Archie will die heroically, saving the life of a friend. The last issue of the series will deal with his friends coping with his death a year later. While Archie will continue to live in the comics that continue to explore his high school years in the present day, his upcoming death is irreversible. No fantasy, what if, or dream sequence here. Archie is going to die. I must admit this bothers me to a certain extent. You want to show Archie at the end of his life? Fine, I get that. But why kill him as a young man in his prime? Why not grant one of our favorite teenagers a long and happy life and show him dying in bed at the ripe old age of 96, surrounded by family and loved ones? This is sad. It reminds me of the old saying, the good die young. Apparently in Archies case this is true. Will I read it? I might. But then again, I may choose not to support this action with my money. In either case, Im sure Ill nd out just how Archie meets his end. And then I may indulge in a moment of silence. Thank you, Archie, for being a part of my childhood. Im sorry you have to leave us in this way. Rest in peace.Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@embarqmail.com. Visit her website at www.laurahware. com. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the staff of the News-Sun.RIP Archie Andrews LAURAS LOOKLaura WareYes, its a new century. Just look at David Letterman, Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush. Theyre all symbols of a new era. Letterman surprised the entertainment biz by suddenly announcing he intends to retire from CBSs Late Show, as soon as next year. His late-night-nemesis Jay Leno gave up his NBC Tonight Show throne last month. In making his decision, Letterman proved himself smart and a symbol of baby-boomers slowly leaving the stage. He clearly recognized a late night television generational shift and goes out on top. Letterman, 66, and Leno, 63, are baby-boomers imprinted by 1950s television who earlier worked comedy clubs. New Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is 39. CBSs Letterman replacement, Stephen Colbert, is 49. The Johnny Carsons, the Dick Cavetts, the Merv Grif ns all gave way to babyboomers, who are now gradually yielding to a younger generation raised on a different kind of comedy and accustomed to being plugged into the Internet. Meanwhile, in politics, we see two contradictory symbols as baby boomers Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are seemingly poised to enter the nations 2016 Presidential race. When Clinton lost her 2008 Democratic nomination bid to Barack Obama, she symbolized a woman trying to break the glass ceiling for the nations highest of ce. In 2016, shed symbolize how being a woman in the race is no longer a novelty. Prediction: well before the end of this century the U.S. will shed its Fred Flintstone-era attitude towards a woman as president. In contrast, Bush is a bittersweet symbol for moderates and centrists. He expressed conservative heresy to Fox News, saying that when illegal immigrants come here its an act of love and commitment to their families. He advocates bringing back bipartisanship and respecting political foes. Which is why Buzzfeeds Ben Smith says Bush is a terrible candidate. Bush champions the return to when people cared more about substantive issues than 24/7 personal attacks on the other political tribe an era when compromise and consensus were considered strengths, not treason or wimpishness. And I think: Well, SURELY someone will step forward and offer this kind of politics again and will win big. But given what were seeing with hyper ideologists and political tribalism, is it realistic to expect a but yet this time?Joe Gandelman is a veteran journalist who wrote for newspapers overseas and in the United States.

He will appear with C entral Florida Re gional Planning Council Planner Jennifer CodoS alisbury and Highlands County Zoning Supervisor Linda Conrad asking for amendments to the High lands County Land Use D evelopment Plan. That action comes as part of a Joint Land Use Study done in 2011 re garding the use of current dev elopment standards in areas around the range. It would involve the estab lishment of three Military Airpor t Zones (MAZ). There are three desig nations, with maps indicating a MAZ III zone that would totally encompass the cities of Avon Park and Sebring and extend well into the south end of Lake Istokpoga. Ofcials say the MAZ overlay would be estab lished to ensure that land uses and activities ar e compatible with the Avon Park Air Force Range by establishing development standards and criteria for unincorporated areas of the county. Among the restric tions for MAZ I and MAZ II which co vers sparse ly populated areas immediately around the R ange and to the east and south of the Range ex tending into Okeechobee and O sceola counties are height limitations for buildings to as low as 50 feet with airspace man agement and approach pr ocedures to take pre cedence in setting height limitations in some of the designated areas. Street and parking lot lighting would also be limited in height and ful ly shielded in MAZ I and MAZ II. N on-shielded x tures without cutoffs like the decor ative lamps in downtown Sebring would be prohibited in those two zones.

Both events will involve several steps and procedures ahead of time, all of which must be approved by council before hand. After the passing of the motion to fund the July 4 rework show at the April 1 meeting, council must now discuss and approve the next steps. Council members will likely approved the consent agenda item to form a committee to handle next years July 4 rework show in order to avoid a repeat of this years problems.

A native of Weehawken, N.J., he had lived in this area for more than 30 years. He was a member of Leisure Lake Baptist Church, Lake Placid. He was a member of the Highlands County Amateur Radio Club, holding a HAM operator license since 1931 with the call W2MAV. A railroad enthusiast, he had a working train system traveling a half mile track around his home at the Iron Horse Ranch. He was member of the Highlands Organ Society. He enjoyed traveling worldwide. He was preceded in death by his wife, Barbara. He is survived by ve sons, Dana Hutchins of Allentown, N.J., David Hutchins of Beachwood, N.J., Roger Hutchins of Perth, Australia, Jeffrey Hutchins of San Mateo, Calif., Curtis Hutchins of Glen Rock, N.J.; two brothers, Don and Allen Hutchins, of New Jersey; four grandchildren, Jason, Mark, Sarah and Greg Hutchins. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at Leisure Lakes Baptist Church, Lake Placid, with Pastor Don Roberts ofciating. Arrangements with Fountain Funeral Home. OBITUARIES legislators seemed to like the idea, especially since the Highlands County School District already has a plan for the projected $4 million in revenue. The tax funds would pay for capital improvement to build new facilities and repair existing ones. Howerton said plans would include adding wings onto Lake Country Elementary and Park Elementary Schools, as well as buying new classroom technology and building a facility in Lake Placid to house school buses that cover routes on the south end of the county. Shoop said the list also includes such things as replacing worn carpet and rusted gutters. The problems with rusted out gutters is that the leaks can put water into the building foundations, which causes more extensive and expensive damage, Shoop said. Some such repairs are as many as four years overdue. Like (fellow board member) Bill Brantley said, there are items on the list since we started the walkthroughs (inspections), Shoop said. Shoop said she also was also making appointments to speak to local homeowners associations about the proposed tax. At the moment, the Highlands County School Board would like to have the tax expire at some date in the future, but a term hasnt been de ned yet. At Tuesdays school board meeting, Shoop also said legislators acknowledged that capital improvement funding was low and that a halfcent sales tax would help. It takes the pressure off them (to provide funds), Chairman Ronnie Jackson said. Highlands County, like most taxing entities, lost revenue when property values dropped in the recession, down from $5.8 billion in 2006-07 to $4.8 billion for this scal year (2013-14), almost half the original projection of $9.2 billion, said Assistant Superintendent Mike Averyt, head of operations. Superintendent of Schools Wally Cox said the district was hit again when the Florida Legislature redirected a half mill 50 cents for every $1,000 of taxable value from the districts capital improvement fund into its general fund. The change came in two 25cent installments, rst in 2008-09 and then in 200910. Averyt said it cut the capital improvement revenue from $13 million per year to $6.9 million, but Cox said a half-cent sales tax would close that gap. For scal year 2013-14, the capital outlay plan has $6.9 million in revenue, $1.6 million carried over from last year and another $15,000 in interest. However, the district needs to transfer $950,000 to the general fund for maintenance and has a debt payment of $5.1 million this year and another of $5.3 million next year, Averyt said. TAX FROM PAGE A1were the prettiest shed seen. Mae, a businessschool graduate from North Carolina, had been homeless for ve months when Espiritu met her while feeding the homeless as part of of her IB studies. I chose homelessness and hunger because, how hard could it be? Espiritu said during a speech at Thursdays bene t banquet for Sebring Highs IB program. Espiritu discovered it was hard to have empathy, but she learned it from visiting with Janie Mae, who had lost her husband and daughter in a car accident. A homeless man told Espiritu that Janie Mae had considered jumping from the East Colonial Drive overpass onto Interstate 4, but didnt. She wanted to see Espiritu again. She told me as long as people like me, with hands like mine, are willing to touch hands calloused by the streets, there is hope, Espiritu said. Thursdays bene t banquet at Chateau lan co-sponsored by the School Board of Highlands County and Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center raised funds for Sebrings International Baccalaureate program. The accelerated college-preparation program stresses high academic and creativity standards, as well as a global perspective. Today, more than a million students are enrolled in IB programs in approximately 3,600 schools in 145 countries. There is a perception of students today as being self-involved and not hard workers, said JoAnna Cochlin, IB coordinator for the Highlands County School District. They come to us amazing people. We help them grow their potential. The local program will have 171 enrolled in 2014-15, Cochlin said, with 69 incoming freshmen accepted into the program and 52 incoming juniors, Cochlin said. Students research projects this year included studying the effects of Wet n Wild amusement park rides on the human body. Community service was the rst-ever Care Mob on March 1, where 99 students helped repaint and spruce up the Highlands Art Leagues art village in Sebring. IB senior Kelby Mahoney, who spoke about the traits the program stresses, said the program forces students to step out of comfort zones, learn to talk with and understand others, take risks, ask questions and consider the world around them. IB alumna Bridget Egan, class of 2012, said the program helped her learn to appreciate different people while gaining con dence to share her opinions. Shes currently at Florida International University, with plans to transfer to the University of Florida then to Harvard Business School. While her travels as a model take her all over the world, Egan said she loves Miamis cosmopolitan culture. Mason Whidden who teaches gifted students teacher at Hill-Gustat Middle School and is husband to Sebring High Principal Sandy Whidden said in his address that hes humbled by how students succeed in life on the memories of a few teachers. Often old students see him again, including once at LaGuardia International Airport in New York City. Often Whidden doesnt remember their names from the hundreds of students he taught each year, but they remember him. You have inspired me to be the person I am today, the former student in New York told him. Whidden said he can recall every teacher who taught him about good character, even if they might never remember him. They will have an impact you will never know, Whidden said.

Eternally yours, Renaldo Fernandez, Milii To Those I Love and Those Who Love Me You mustnt tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy we had so many years. Its only for a while that we must part. So bless the memories within your heart. So if you need me, call and I will come. And if you listen with your heart, youll hear, And then, when you must come this way alone, A Comfort To Those Who Mourn: Approximately 350 other species make use of gopher tortoise burrows, studies hav e shown. We try to raise aware ness and set precautions for people this time of year when the tortoises are very active. Highlands County certainly has its share of gopher tortois es, so it is of importance to r esidents and visitors there to know how to keep them safe, Morse said. The tortoises are espe cially vulnerable when their slo w-motion roam ing takes them across a str eet. After all, its not like they can jump out of the way of a passing car. To make matters even worse, some drivers may even take aim at them. In 2012, Clemson stu dent Nathan Weaver was tr ying to nd a way to help protect turtles (and, by default, tortoises) as they cross roadways. In stead, he ended up discovering that some drivers will go out of their way to tur n them into a speed bump. In the span of an hour, seven out of 267 cars near the Clemson campus purposely crushed rubber turtles Weaver placed on the busy streets. Morse knows that inci dents between cars and tor toises are inevitable, but was willing to give drivers more credit than that. I dont think drivers purposely hit them, but it does happen, which is why we have the informa tion and precautions in place to help keep them safe, he said. The FWC encourages drivers to slow down on highways to help protect gopher tortoises. If one is crossing the road, it is OK to pick it up and move it to safety but keep it pointed in the direction it was heading. And while the tortoise will probably appreciate a lift across the street, what ever you do, do not put it into any nearb y water. Its a tortoise (which is a landbased animal), not a tur tle. Gopher tortoises dont kno w how to swim. The FWC has launched a smartphone app for both iPhone and Android that will let people to re port to the FWC when and wher e they spot gopher tortoises. When users of the app take a photograph of a tortoise or its burrow, the photo and its GPS co ordinates will be sent automatically to the FWC. An inter active map of the sightings is coming soon, the FWC reports. App-generated data col lected by citizen scientists will help guide conser vation of this threatened species the FWC said. Bi ological information and a quiz testing the user s knowledge of the only tor toise east of the Mississippi River also are included in the app. The FWCs Gopher Tor toise Management Plan spells out goals and ac tions to protect the tor toises, their burrows sheltering hundreds of other species and their habi tat. Prescribed burning is cr itical to maintaining the sandy, open elds and forests and the growth of soft-stemmed plants that tortoises need to survive. To access the manage ment plan, go to MyFWC. com/W ildlife and select Managed Species. People can report in jured or dead gopher tor toises to the FWC by calling 850-921-1030 during w eekdays or by contacting the Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-3922. Harming a gopher tortoise, its bur rows or eggs is against the law .Staff writer Samantha Gholar contributed to this report.

Raymon McIntyre said in his recent address to the Greater Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce. Hurricane Charlie, Hurricane Francis and Hurricane Jean all hit that summer and it was impossible to tell which storm did what damage. McIntyre was charged with assessing the damage that the storms caused. He was informed by the state that he would handle the disasters like one storm. About a month later, the hurricanes seemed to have no effect on market growth, McIntyre said. In 2005 there was a 22 percent increase, and in 2006 there was a 42 percent increase in the property values of Highlands County. In 2007, however, there was a sharp decline and it has been down every year since then. Right now we are back at about the level of 2002 for the county, McIntyre said. The question is, where are we going from here? Is our market in recovery? Recent numbers showed the county at a small decrease, but McIntyre was optimistic that by the end of the scal year in July housing values will show an increase. Highlands Countys trends usually lag behind the coasts by about a year. Many coastal areas are showing positive growth. Signs are showing that the resale market may be getting stronger in our area, however, there is still not a lot of construction going on, McIntyre said. We wont know for sure if there is an increase in Highlands County until July rst, said McIntyre. But we are still making changes and analyzing until then. McIntyre weaved comedy and serious information throughout his presentation and gave some anecdotes about some of the things that he has experienced over the years as an appraiser. A lady who lived in Istokpoga called and asked me to re-evaluate her home. I asked what the problem was and she said buzzards have overtaken my house, McIntyre said. Buzzards have decided to take her house over as a roosting area. Every night they come to roost. McIntyre said the buzzards were breaking off the TV antennae, tearing up the screen room of the pool and that the whole roof was covered with carcasses. Since buzzards are endangered, they could not be eradicated so McIntyre suggested that she could call the game commission and ask them if they are your buzzards or are they my buzzards? If they are your buzzards you owe me a bill to repair my home. Since then, the buzzards have left the house, McIntyre reported. The Student Of The Month and the Teacher Of The Month were awarded during the chamber luncheon as well. Sereana McMillan was awarded the teacher of the month by the Lake Placid Noon Rotary, McMillan is a teachers aid for kindergarten and some rst graders at the Montessori Academy in Lake Placid. This was such a surprise, McMillan said. I had no idea where I was going today, all I was told was to dress nicely. Jenna Blount was awarded the student of the month. It is an honor, it is really cool, she said. Blount participates in her local church, mission activities, serving as an intern, nursery worker and Vocation Bible School leader. She has also worked for Camp Joy, which is a camp for children with disabilities. She is the treasurer for the senior class, a member of the National Honor Society and is active in student government. She is a member of both soccer and tennis teams, and a one year member of the golf team. Blount does all this while maintaining a 5.9 weighted GPA. She plans on getting her degree in graphic design and visual arts.Lake Placid Chamber hears hopeful housing market report from McIntyre Rod Lewis/News-SunEileen May (left) presents the student of the month award to Jenna Blount.

www.newssun.comSunday, April 13, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A11 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING The momentum builder that Thursdays win over Avon Park could have been, wasnt to be Friday night as the Blue Streaks dropped their regular season, district nale to Hardee, 3-2, at Firemens Field. Starter Everett Hurst pitched well, but was dodging bullets early on. With two out in the top of the rst an error was followed by a single to put two on before a grounder to short ended it. Again in the second, an error and single had the Wildcats threatening to get on the board before Hurst got an inning-ending ground out. The top of the third was a lot less nerve-racking as Hurst retired the side in order, and things were looking up when the Streaks got broke through in the bottom of the frame. David DeGenaro lead it off with a single and Justin Bickman dropped down a sacrice bunt BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comThursdays loss in the backyard brawl to Sebring proved to just be a bump in the road for the Red Devils. While their offense was stied by the Streaks, and still wasnt up to its highscoring standards Friday against visiting Sarasota Booker, they did get the job done in a 4-2 win. We bounced back with a good win, head coach Whit Cornell said afterward. Trey Frazier pitched a great game and we got back on track. A great game indeed as Frazier threw an efcient seven innings, needing just 88 pitches, and surrendering just one earned run. The offense, meanwhile, got the runs it needed for the win. In the second, Kyle Kelley lead off with a single up the middle and one out later moved to third on Kyle Thompsons double. Alfred Brown then brought both runners in with a single to center. Kelley was in the mix of scoring in the next inning as well as the Devils plated two more. Mason Jahna lined a single to right with one out before Kelley sent a one-strike pitch screaming down the left-eld line. The only question was whether it would stay fair or hook foul. That question was quickly answered when the ball hit the foul pole for a two-run homer. The Tornadoes would get on the board in the fourth when Albert De Los Santos was awarded rst on a catchers interference call and would come around on singles by Sam Proctor and Ar mando Benitez. They would strike again in the seventh SPORTsS BY ZACH MILLERSpecial to the News-SunENGLEWOOD Lemon Bay High School senior Jessica Lown and Sebring senior Micaela DeVane battled for near ly two hours on Thursday, but each teams fate was sealed before the end of their match. Lown eventually won the No. 2 singles match 6-7(5), 6-2, 6-1, ending a 5-0 victory for Lemon Bay to make them Region 2A-6 champions. The win sends the Manta Rays to the state tournament for the fifth straight year. They won Thursdays match with depth, as Linda Antonova, Sar ah Lown, Maddie Casad and Ashley Tormey put any anxiety about Lowns match to rest by winning their singles matches in straight sets. I was glad that (Jessica Lown) came back and won it, it showed a lot of character on her part and a lot of class, Lemon Bay coach Darrell Roach said. She pretty much knew the team would make it even if she didnt win, but she didnt let up and she fought hard all the way to the end and thats going to bode well for her at the state tournament when she gets into trouble and is able to be resilient and come back. The Class 2A state championships get underway Monday in Casselberry. The Manta Rays enter the tournament red hot after dominating district play last week and shutting out opponents in regional matches on backto-back days. They beat Bishop Verot 4-0 on Wednesday. Playing on consecutive days wasnt a big deal to Lemon Bay, which played both matches at home, but was a major challenge for Sebring. The Blue Streaks, making their first regional finals appearance since 2003, beat Golden Gate on Wednesday after the match was rained out on Tuesday and tried to move the Thursday match to today, but couldnt because Lemon Bays prom is tonight. I thought if we could just have a rest day in between, because we drove three hours to Naples and a good two hours here and theyre tired, Sebring coach Jane Hollinger said. But they did well, so I cant complain. I think (DeV ane) played the best tennis shes ever played. I think all of the girls stepped up. We had our No. 3 (Alaina Keith) not feel well, so we bumped everybody up. We threw in No. 6 (Amanda Rios) at the No. 5 position and she did great, Im very proud of them.Lady Streaks soured at Lemon Bay Dan Hoehne/News-Sun lesMicaela DeVane put up forth a monumental effort Thursday, but her and the Lady Streaks would come up short against Lemon Bay in the Class 2A Regional nal.

Such was the case Thursday night at Head Field, where a scufing Blue Streak squad met up with a team of Red Devils that had been on a roll. And perhaps it was the spark Sebring needed, the expected jolt of this ageold rivalry, as they came away with an 8-2 win.

NOT EVER. 4x4 RUNS GREAT Dan Hoehne/News-SunJustin Bickman can only watch as Alex Gomezs drive to left clears the wall for a home run Thursday night.Sebring then rallied in the third to take a lead it would not relinquish. Austin started it with a single to left and one out later moved to third on a Matt Portis single to right. Austin came in again on a pitch that got away as Seth Cannady was drawing a walk, and Josh Crouch sent a single to right to load the bases. David DeGenaro then drew a walk to push Por tis across, and during the next two at bats, a ur ry of wild pitches and passed balls brought three more runs in to give Sebring a 6-1 cushion. From there, Streak southpaw Jonathan Struck worked through scoreless innings, striking out eight in his time on the mound, before giving way to Crouch with two outs in the sixth. Avon Park would scratch the scoreboard again in the bottom of the seventh when Kyle Kelley doubled and would later be driven in on a Trey Frazier sacrice y. But Crouch would soon retire the side and secure the Sebring win. This is a game you dont have to get the kids up for, Blue Streak head coach Jayson DeWitt said. And it showed, they played a real good game. The win moved the Streaks to 8-12 heading into Fridays district contest with Hardee. For Avon Park, the loss snapped a fourgame winning streak and brought their record to 16-4 heading into Fridays non-district tilt with Sarasota Booker. STREAKS FROM PAGE A11 when, with two out, Anthony Swanson singled and came in on a Berry Holland double to right. But Frazier soon got a grounder to short for the nal out to secure the win. Now 17-4 on the season, the Devils get set for the nal week of the regular season before hosting the District 9-4A tournament. They will travel to Wauchula to face Hardee Tuesday and welcome DeSoto to Head Field Thursday. AP FROM PAGE A11 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Mackenzie Hunt reaches above the fence to rob State College of Florida of a home run. This would prove crucial as the Lady Panthers held on for a 9-7 win in the opener of Thursdays doubleheader. South Florida would, however, come up short in the nightcap as a controversial call at the plate left them on the wrong end of a 9-8 score. The let-down seemed to have a carry-over effect as well, as on a trip to St. Petersburg to make up for Tuesdays rain out, the Panthers tanks were empty in a lopsided sweep. The team returns home for more conference action Tuesday with a visit from Hillsborough.LADY PANTHERS RISE, THEN FALL TIM REYNOLDSAP Basketball WriterMIAMI LeBron James scored 36 points, and the Miami Heat moved back atop the Eastern Conference standings by running past the Indiana Pacers 98-86 on Friday night. The Heat scored the rst 16 points of the second half and werent in trouble again. Miami (54-25) leads the Pacers (54-26) by a half-game in the East race. Mario Chalmers scored 13, Udonis Haslem added 11 and Chris Bosh and Ray Allen each scored 10 for the Heat. Paul George scored 22 for Indiana, which got 18 from David West, 12 from Luis Scola and 11 from Lance Stephenson. Pacers center Roy Hibbert had only ve points and one rebound, grabbing it with just over 2 minutes left in the game. Miami has games against Atlanta, Washington and Philadelphia left. Win them all, and the Heat would have homecourt advantage through at least the East nals which went seven games against Indiana last season. The Pacers who sat their starters against Milwaukee on Wednesday in an effort to rest for this one still play Oklahoma City and Orlando. In the opening minutes of the second half, a predictably tight game turned into a surprise blowout. The Heat were up three at the half, then opened the third on a 16-0 run. Chalmers opened the barrage with a 3-pointer and James hit a pair of free throws after taking a hard foul from West in transition.Heat back atop East, beat PacersLeBron scores 36, Heat beat Pacers 98-86 to move atop Eastern Conference

Ty Little followed with an RBI single that moved Bickman to third. Later, a pick-off attempt was thrown to third, with no elder on hand to receive the throw, and Bickman scampered in with the ball rolling away. Little was also waved around, but a good throw in nabbed at the plate. Sebring would get runners to third in both the fourth, and sixth, but would leave then stranded, while Hurst worked out of threats in both the fourth and fth to maintain the 2-0 lead. But Hardee would tie it in the sixth. With one out, Justin Dolcater drew a walk, but stayed put as Hurst struck Tanor Durden out. But with his pitch count nearing 100, this would end his night and send a call to the bullpen. A hit batter, wild pitch and a Kris Johnson single later, however, and the ty ing runs had come across. And in the seventh, another bout of wildness would haunt the Streaks as a walk, wild pitch and single allowed Cody Spencer to race across with the go-ahead run. Little would single with two outs in the bottom of the seventh, giving Sebring one last glimmer of hope, but it would not come to be. Now 2-4 in District 115A, the Blue Streaks are locked into the third seed, and will start the district tournament with a rematch with the Wildcats, on the road Tuesday, April 22. Prior to that, Sebring will look to build up some momentum this week with a home date against George Jenkins Tuesday and a trip to Port St. Lucie Thursday.

LeBlanc and Becerra also qualied by taking third and fourth, respectively, in the pole vault. Perez would also get two more advancements, in both the 1,600and 3,200-meter runs. For the Green Dragon boys, Julian Obregon, Mercer Gabriel, Scott Sigrist and Dalton Shelton qualied in the 4X800, with Shelton also moving on in the 1,600 and 3,200. Dalton Hillier moved ahead to regionals in the pole vault. For the Lady Red Devils, Imani Tate continued her strong throwing with qualifying nishes in both the discus and shot put, with Genesis Moro also moving on in the discus. Lashady Love won the 200-meter dash (27.37 seconds) and took second in the triple jump (31feet, 6-inches). She was also part of the 4X100 and 4X400 relay teams to move on with Kenneda Jones, Keyanessaha Fullerd and Brittany Egan. Shanice Leverson then won the 100-meter hur dles and nished second in the 300 hurdles to move on in both. The Avon Park boys also saw advancement from their 4X400 relay team of Ahmaad Smith, Christian Suarez, Warren Buckner and Dre Neely. Josh Jones also moved on with a third-place nish in the 200-mete dash and fourth in the high jump. The Region 3-2A meet takes place Wednesday, April 16, at Berkeley Prep in Tampa, beginning at Noon. TRACK FROM PAGE A11 Wow, what a great day for our track athletes.Scott Morgan Lake Placid head coach Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Josh Crouch res to rst for an out in Fridays contest. JOE KAYAP Baseball WriterCINCINNATI Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore plans to play catch in a few days to see how his left elbow is feeling and decide whether he can try to recover from his latest problem without surgery. Moore went on the 15day disabled list Tuesday and had an MRI. The Rays are waiting for a team doctor to return from a trip over the weekend and compare the latest scans to earlier ones. Moore also experienced elbow soreness last year while going 17-4 with a 3.29 ERA for the Rays. Moore said on Friday before the opening game of a series against the Reds that the elbow felt better than it did a year ago, when he spent the month of August on the disabled list. The way it feels compared to last time, I feel a whole lot better, he said. I feel Im in a lot better place. I think in the next three to ve days, we should have a decent idea which direction this is going. Left-hander Cesar Ramos, who competed for the nal spot in the rotation during spring training, will take Moores place on Sunday for the nal game of the series. Ramos has made four relief appearances totaling four innings. Its based on the spring training he had, a lot of the conversation we had with him and the other pitchers as we broke spring training, manager Joe Maddon said. Were trying to stay true to our word. We thought it was the right thing to do now, to give him that opportunity. Maddon estimated that Ramos could throw as many as 75 pitches on Sunday. The Rays could make a move to bolster their bullpen for Sundays game, depending upon whether they need to use their relievers a lot in the rst two games of the series. Before Fridays game, the Rays recalled outelder Kevin Kiermaier from Triple-A Durham. He took the roster spot opened when the Rays optioned left-hander Jeff Beliveau to Durham on Wednesday.Rays Moore will try to throw in a few days MCT photo Matt Moore is opting for rest to see if that helps his sore elbow.

We started hanging out again soon af ter, and everything fell into place We were talking recent ly, and he mentioned that he s planning to move across the country to San Francisco to be near his family. He made it plain he wants to live on the West Coast forever. I am close to my family closer than Ian is to his. Were both 24, and while were not going to get en gaged anytime soon, Im not sur e what to do. We love each other, but the geography is causing so many issues. Please ad vise. NEW YORK GIRLDEAR N.Y. GIRL: Its good that you and Ian arent planning on becom ing engaged anytime soon, because y ou have some serious thinking to do. If you plan on having a fam ily and want your parents to be close to their gr and children, it would be better for you to nd another boyfriend. Im advising y ou and Ian to take an other break this time for YOUR benet to see which is more important to you: the man or the lo cation. DEAR ABBY : This issue with my wife may seem trivial, but its making me crazy. I like to cook; she doesnt. When I cook its an expression of love, and our family sits down together to enjoy the meal. We dont watch TV and we dont an swer the phone. Sounds ideal, wouldn t you say? The problem is, after I put the food on the table, my wife gets up and starts pulling other food from the fridge to microwave. Or shell start making a salad. These last-minute ad ditions make me furious. S he knows it, but wont stop. Either she doesnt want the leftover to go bad or she thinks some thing is missing from the table I say she should pre pare these additions while I m making dinner so ev erything will be on the table at the same time, or else for get it. What do you think? STEAMING IN THE KITCHEN IN TEXASDEAR STEAMING: Is the layout of your kitch en conducive to tandem cooking? I f its not, that may be why your wife goes in there after youre no longer using it. Do you tell your wife what you will be preparing for dinner and ask if there is anything else she wants included? That may prompt her to think ahead so she wouldnt have to get up and leave the table. If the answer to my questions is yes, then there may be something going on in your relation ship for which shes trying to punish y ou. DEAR ABBY: My daughter goes to a preschool in a chur ch where we are not members. Pastor Joe is very involved with the classes, often chat ting with the parents and calling them b y their rst names. I have seen him around town various times, but Im never sure how to ad dress him. I feel strange calling him Pastor since he isnt my minister. On the other hand, calling him Joe doesnt quite seem right either. How should a man of the cloth be greeted on the street?

Join us at Crown Pointe Assisted Living Facility for Easter Bunny Pictures! Monday, April 14th 5pm-7pm at 5005 Sun n Lake Blvd., just one mile down from the hospital.863-386-1060www.cpcommunities.com Welcome to the roost! Readers may be following the suggestion made that the Bluebird Tail located on the state-owned parcel of Royce Ranch be named in honor of Bud Warren, who was devoted to that projects success. Our hope is that the Highlands County Audubon Society will act quickly and we can all breath a sigh of relief. In the meantime, let us enjoy the Creators gifts, especially birds and all of the great outdoors. A good gift to contemplate would be the red-bellied woodpecker (Centurus carolinus), other names: zebra, guinea sapsucker, orange sapsucker, and cham-chack. The black-and-white, zebra-like striping of the back of this bird, together with the red crown and neck (not the whole head) will make identi cation easy. The female is exactly like her mate, but lacks the red on the forehead. Though there is a reddish wash on the belly, it can rarely be seen except when the bird ies off. At other times, it is against the treetrunk or whatever perch the bird is using, and therefore invisible. This is probably the most abundant woodpecker in Florida and occurs all over the state at all seasons. The harsh chrring note is a familiar sound and at once recognizable when one has connected it with the bird. The bird nests from April to June and both male and female work very hard to excavate a hole in a dead tree or in decayed stubs of palmettos. The bird will use man-made boxes and will enlarge the entrance hole to suit it.The size of the bird from 8.5-10 inches should be taken into consideration when making the box. Four to six white, glossy eggs are laid, and by the end of May the rst young to be hatched may be seen climbing to high branches of the home tree, or those close by. The birds food is two-thirds vegetable and one-third insect matter. This consists of acorns, beechnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, wild fruits, and perhaps some corn. When they attack our bird-feeder, we notice they make every effort to get at the black-oil sun ower seeds. The bird will devour ants, grasshoppers, caterpillars, lizards, beetles, stinkbugs, tree frogs, eggs of cockroaches, and wood-boring beetles and is fond of poison ivy seeds, mulberries, woodbine, fox grapes and the mast of the sour-gum. The one criticism against the race in certain sections is its fondness for oranges. But as it pecks holes in dead ripe fruit, and patrols the ground under the trees to consume whole dropped and decaying oranges, it is a valuable grove and forest scavenger, as well as a truck crop protector. The bird is on the University Department of Agriculture honor roll. Nick and Jan Swanson sent in a couple of photos they took of a Florida sand-hill crane sitting on one egg, and a nest made of a couple sticks. What a lazy couple of birds. The nest has been placed on the bare wood of a dock. I hope the Swansons will let me know how this plays out so that the readers will be informed. Until next time, please remember to send me any unusual bird or wildlife sightings (just as Nick and Jan did) so that readers can enjoy such antics too. As always, get out there and enjoy the Creators outdoors; its a quality of life activity that will add years to your life and life to your years.Hank Kowalski lives in Lake Placid and is a graduate of the Dr. Reed Bowman Bird Study Course, given at South Florida State College.

OUTDOORS BIRDS & OTHER WILD THINGSHank Kowalski Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Exciting things are happening at the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative in Lake Placid. Many changes have been taking place during the past year to better meet the needs of members. According to Judy Nicewicz, president of the coop, We have had many challenges this year, but we have made the necessary changes to build an even stronger future. We are thriving and look forward to future growth. By changing the coops Bylaws and Standing Rules, we are now able to increase membership opportunities, Nicewicz added. Some of the changes include allowing artists and crafters to have full membership without the need to work counter and special event hours. The previous work obligation made membership dif cult for some of the older members with health issues and for younger members who hold fulltime jobs. Members who choose the new option change their percentage to a 6040 percent split, with the artist receiving 60 percent for any of his or her sales. The new option also creates an opportunity for people who do not live in the Lake Placid area to become full members. Memberships where counter and special event hours continue to be required, still receive a 75 percent commission for work sold. The annual membership fees remain the same. Another important change to the Bylaws was the removal of the noncompetition clause that prevented co-op artists from selling their art through other local outlets. Nicewicz said, We believe it is important that we welcome all artists and crafters and to encourage them to consider the co-op as a place where their work will be displayed and sold in a professional manner. A new membership category has been created for non-artists who want to support the organization nancially and administratively. The new Patron of the Arts members pay an annual membership fee of $125. In addition to a tax-exempt contribution to the co-op, Patrons can vote at membership meetings and serve on the board or as an of cer. To create a more ef cient board of directors, the six vice presidents are now Standing Committee Chairs without some of their previous board responsibilities. Student arts and crafters are also encouraged to become a part of the co-op. The annual membership fee of $125 is waived for those 18 or younger.Changes at the Caladium Co-op

Youre brilliantly funny, youve proven yourself in the Comedy Central farm leagues, and odds are you will be a worthy successor to David Letterman. But forgive us if we spend a few wistful moments thinking about what might have been. Nothing personal here, but your anointment is just so, well, predictable. Yes, theres big bucks at stake, even in the shrinking world of ratings and advertising dollars that late-night TV has become. And CBS, the broadest of the major broadcasters with a strategy that aims for the most viewers, not niche audiences, is the least likely to take a chance. But the swiftness of the networks announcement Thursday about Colbert allowed little breathing room for online and water-cooler speculation, the kind that can be both juicy and illuminating. There are other engaging entertainers around, whether they have or havent occupied a talk show chair. And did the last network late-night job likely to be open for years have to go to yet another man? And did it have to be another white guy? Here are a few who could have been contenders, worthy competitors to NBCs Jimmy Fallon and ABCs Jimmy Kimmel:Ellen DeGeneresIn the post-Oprah Winfrey world of daytime talk, DeGeneres holds fast as queen bee despite heavyweight challengers, including Katie Couric. DeGeneres easy charm has translated to the biggest stage, hosting the Academy Awards, so her mainstream credentials are proven. Plus, she can dance.Tina Fey and Amy PoehlerTogether or separately. They always kill, whether on Saturday Night Live, on their respective sitcoms ( Rock, Parks and Recreation) or on the Golden Globes, where they bring their sassy and oh-so-21st-century female empowerment vibe. Picture that in late-night and try not to smile.Chelsea HandlerShes done her time in the minor leagues and indicated shes ready to leave her E! Entertainment Television talk show. Yes, she might have to soften her tough-chick persona for network TV and the blue jokes de nitely would go, but she would still bring the rarity of free-wheeling sexiness to late-night.Neil Patrick HarrisSo obvious. The CBS sitcom star (the just-ended How I Met Your Mother) is a jack-of-all-entertainment who handles stage and screen with the greatest of ease. Sing, dance, whatever; he could probably have done Late Show Shakespeare soliloquies with the air to make them online sensations. Louis C.K. Who can deny that great stand-up comedians can make great hosts? Hes a true original, a wily veteran of stage and sitcom but, at 46, still comfortably within the age range of late-nights new young guns who are following 60-somethings Letterman and Jay Leno. Hey, Colbert is 49 and hes cool.Jamie FoxxWant energy, con dence and a hosts roster of Alist colleagues a show can summon at will? Heres your man. Foxx is an Oscar-caliber movie star as well as a comedian and singer, with a winning unpredictability that could lure new viewers, especially the advertiser-favored young ones Fallon is drawing to Tonight.Lynn Elber can be reached at lelber@ap.org and on Twitter@lynnelber.Who else was worthy of Late Show prize?

Star Farms 5600 Kenilworth Blvd. Sebring, FL 33870863-655-3485Mon-Fri 7am-5pm TODD MCCARTHYThe Hollywood ReporterLOS ANGELES The pre-pre-season opening kickoff of the 2014 National Football League schedule is returned for a score in Draft Day, an entirely conventional serio-comic sports world melodrama that pushes its buttons with undeniable professional nesse. In his most effective full star turn in perhaps a decade, Kevin Costner dominates as the greenhorn general manager of the beleaguered Cleveland Browns who could emerge from the heavy shadow of his late revered father with the successful handling of the annual draft of college players. Most great sports stories center on an underdog and Costners Sonny Weaver Jr. can claim that status on at least two counts: Hes a man well into his 50s who has never been able to make his own mark due to his dads legendary status, and his team is Cleveland, a dyedin-the-wool football town that hasnt had a team win it all since 1964. Further cementing Sonnys status as a late bloomer, if not something of a Peter Pan, is that hes just learned hes to become a dad for the rst time, courtesy of his secret relationship with one of the teams nancial executives, Ali (Jennifer Garner). From every point of view, Sonnys got something to prove. The screenwriting team of Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman make it easy even for the uninitiated to get with the program, using real ESPN announcers and plenty of other commentary to clarify the workings of the draft, as NFL teams annually line up and sometimes jockey for position to select new players; although the order of selection is theoretically based on performance from the previous season, teams can bargain with each other for higher picks, negotiations which involve last-minute phone calls right down the wire and owe much both to shrewd talent assessment skills and great gambling instincts. This season, the number one pick belongs to Seattle and the consensus favorite for player to be signed rst is star Wisconsin quarterback Bo Callahan (Josh Pence), whos the sort of talent you build a team around. Seattle wants to claim him but, under pressure from the intimidating Cleveland team owner (Frank Langella) to make a splash, Sonny negotiates rst dibs on Callahan for a tall price, that of the Browns rst draft picks for the next three years. Although the whole football world seems to think Callahan is the latest incarnation of Joe Montana or Tom Brady, Sonny isnt so sure, prompting alternately amusing and concerning probes into the QBs past behavior. Not only that, but Sonny has long had his eye on two other great college players, played by Chadwick Boseman (from ) and actual Houston running back Arian Foster. But he would seem to have given up on them by dealing for Callahan, a move that has understandably infuriated the Browns present quarterback (Tom Welling). Its Sonnys lot to take a lot of crap from almost everyone around him, particularly from his disrespectful coach (Denis Leary), who loves to shove his Super Bowl ring from his Dallas days in his face, and even from his mother (a most amusing Ellen Burstyn), who selects this of all days to conduct a memorial ceremony for her husband and cast his ashes upon the practice eld named for him. But making Sonny human, and warming up the lm so much that even non-fan female viewers will likely nd it engaging, is his relationship with Ali. Real life would probably see a man in Sonnys high-pressure situation telling the woman hes just learned hes knocked up to please put their needed conversation on hold for 24 hours. Raised a Browns fan, Ali is into the draft frenzy herself, realistic and helpful to Sonny when he needs it. All the same, the two amusingly retreat to a storeroom several times in an attempt at some private moments, which seldom go uninterrupted for long. Garners a treat here.

MOVIE REVIEW CRITICS RATING: DAVID BAUDERAssociated PressNEW YORK Kiss made up, but its music went unheard. Nirvana used four women rockers to sing Kurt Cobains songs. And Bruce Springsteens E Street Band predictably turned its honor into a marathon. The three acts were ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday in a colorful induction ceremony at Brooklyns Barclays Center. They were joined by the blue-eyed soul duo Hall & Oates, British rocker Peter Gabriel, 1970s folkie Cat Stevens and the absent Linda Ronstadt. Nirvana was the emotional centerpiece. The trio rooted in the Seattle-area punk rock scene was voted into the hall in its rst year of eligibility. Smells Like Teen Spirit hit like a thunderclap upon its 1991 release, but the band was done after Kurt Cobain committed suicide 20 years ago this month. Nirvana fans walk up to me every day and say thank you for the music, said Krist Novoselic, the bands bass player, who was inducted with drummer Dave Grohl. When I hear that, I think of Kurt Cobain. A subdued Courtney Love, Cobains widow, was booed by some in the audience. She said Cobain would have appreciated the honor. Nirvana tapped into a voice that was yearning to be heard, said former R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe, who described how the band made a community of the disaffected. Joan Jett was chosen to sing Smells Like Teen Spirit. Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, St. Vincent and Lorde each took turns at the microphone, with Lordes version of All Apologies ending the night. Kiss was responsible for pre-ceremony drama. The two original members still active, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, thought the replacements for ex-bandmates Ace Frehley and Peter Criss should perform at the ceremony instead of the original four. The result was Kisss music went unheard. Still, the estranged band members spoke warmly of each other when the quartet appeared behind the microphone. In and out of makeup, Ill always be the Catman, said drummer Criss, referencing his makeup in the band. Youve got to forgive to live. The band received a crowd-pleasing endorsement from Rage Against the Machines Tom Morello, who said Kiss inspired him to play music. He said he had to ght off high school bullies who ridiculed him for liking the band. Tonight proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the high school bullies and critics were wrong, he said. Kiss fans were right. Springsteens 1999 entrance into the Rock Hall without the E Street Band was a sore point for some of its members. They got their due Thursday in the sidemen category, although it was a posthumous honor for saxman Clarence Clemons and keyboard player Danny Federici. Their leader recalled a kitchen conversation 15 years ago with his buddy and bandmate, Steve Van Zandt. Springsteen took pride in his independence and the band was only beginning to repair relations after a decade apart. He had no problem being inducted alone. Steve said, yes, I understand, Springsteen recalled, but Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, thats the legend. So the band, known for its long concerts, made up for lost time. Their induction took 85 minutes, as individual members ignored requests to keep their speeches short. Then they took the stage for performances of The E Street Shuf e, The River and an epic Kittys Back. Lucky for you, there are only two of us, Daryl Hall said when he was inducted with partner John Oates. The duo was a mainstay on the radio during the late 1970s and early 1980s. They performed some of their hits Shes Gone, I Cant Go For That and You Make My Dreams Come True although hitting some of the high notes again was a struggle. Hall said he was surprised to learn that his act was the only Philadelphia-bred band in the hall. Ronstadt, the sexy siren of the Los Angeles country-rock scene of the 1970s, couldnt make it to her induction. Now retired, she suffers from Parkinsons disease and doesnt travel much. Glenn Frey, who played with fellow future Eagle Don Henley in Ronstadts backup band, saluted her with an induction speech. Ronstadt was saluted by some royalty of female country rock. Carrie Underwood sang Different Drum, Ronstadts rst hit with the Stone Poneys. Emmylou Harris and Bonnie Raitt joined for Blue Bayou. Sheryl Crow and Frey made it a quintet to sing Youre No Good. Then Stevie Nicks came out to lead them in Its So Easy and When Will I Be Loved.Nirvana, Kiss and the E Street Band join rock hall MCTBruce Springsteen, along with the E Street Band, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Thursday.

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. The alarm blared. My husband, Ken, reached to shut it and we both turned over and fell back to sleep. An hour later, we suddenly awoke greatly aware we had overslept. With much to do, we leaped from bed trying to make up for lost time. Once weve lost that early morning edge, something usually has to give. We can bemoan the loss, or put it in its proper perspective and move on. And that is what I believe God would have us do. The triumphal entry into Jerusalem where Jesus is hailed as King with shouts of Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! is over. A serious time of re ection follows during the Passover meal. Come back with me to the hours after that meal. As they made their way through the grape arbors, Jesus taught them about how a branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me, as we read in John 15: 4b, NKJV. Its sad how they missed their next opportunity to abide. Jesus asked the disciples to watch and pray with him in the Garden of Gethsemane as he went a little further from them to seek his heavenly Father in prayer. Imagine being asked by Jesus to be his prayer partner and being found asleep when he returns? Thats what happened more than once that night. Though disappointed in his followers, Jesus at last says Sleep on now, and take your rest (Matthew 26: 45, KJV). But shortly afterward, a new directive comes, Rise, let us be going. Its as if Jesus is saying that they cant do anything about what is past, but they can rise up and move forward. Isnt it the same with us? The past haunts us with disappointments, selfpity or blame. We attempt to carry a burden we cannot bear along with a debt we cant repay. By blaming others or Satan, we fail to take responsibility producing an endless cycle of despair. But, Jesus says to come and abide in Him and leave the past in his hands. And he is about to prove to the disciples and us that he can restore what seems lost. As Jesus is then arrested, mocked, beaten and cruci ed, the disciples are drowning in sorrow and regret. But, Sunday is about to dawn with new hope. They will know what it is to leave the irretrievable past at the cross.

Lawmakers are moving ahead with a proposal to name the Bible as Louisianas of cial state book, despite concerns the bill would land the Legislature in court. A House municipal committee advanced the bill Thursday with an 8-5 vote, sending it to the full House for debate. Rep. Thomas Carmody, R-Shreveport, said he sponsored the proposal after a constituent made the request. But Carmody insisted the bill wasnt designed to be a stateendorsement of Christianity or a speci c religion. Its not to the exclusion of anyone elses sacred literature, he told the House committee. Again, later he said, This is not about establishing an of cial religion of the state of Louisiana. Lawmakers who voted against the measure said it raises questions about whether Louisiana would be violating the separation of church and state. Rep. Wesley Bishop, DNew Orleans, said as a preachers son, he loved the concept. But he said as a lawyer, he thinks the bill has problems. He voted against the measure. I think were going to open ourselves up to a lawsuit. You cant adopt the Bible and not adopt Christianity, he said. Other lawmakers objected to Carmodys proposal to use a specific version of the Bible, so that language was stripped from the bill before it was passed. Rep. Barbara Norton, D-Shreveport, said she didnt feel quali ed to vote on anything thats related to the Bible, so she voted against it. Rep. Ebony Woodruff, D-Harvey, said adopting the Bible as the states ofcial book could be offensive to people who live in the state and who arent Christian. Youre OK with offending some of the citizens of this state? she asked. Its not meant to be offensive, Carmody replied. Theres no requirement that they would have to follow this particular text. Voting for the bill were Reps. Taylor Barras, RNew Iberia; Johnny Berthelot, R-Gonzales; Robert Billiot, D-Westwego; Terry Brown, I-Colfax; Mike Danahay, D-Sulphur; Dalton Honore, DBaton Rouge; Stephen Ortego, D-Carencro; and Tom Willmott, R-Kenner. Voting against the bill were Bishop, Norton, Woodruff and Reps.

Long Mile Home, by Boston Globe reporters Scott Helman and Jenna Russell, is a surprisingly fantastic read. The basic outline is well-known: Two brothers are suspected in the April 15 bombings that killed three people, seriously injured hundreds and caused utter chaos. Its the lesser-known nuggets, and the interweaving of the characters stories, that make Long Mile Home a must-read. The book starts out with a beautiful history of the Boston Marathon and poignant description of its opening moments: a column of bobbing runners, thousands of them, surging downhill on a twisting two-lane road, a kinetic rainbow of tank tops, radiant T-shirts, race-day costumes, visors, headbands, and hats. Readers are introduced to the races longtime director, Dave McGillivray, whose short stature challenged his dreams of being an athlete until he found a refuge in running. As for the Tsarnaev brothers, the authors write that the older one, Tamerlan, heard voices in his head and erupted at fellow Muslims who celebrated secular holidays like Thanksgiving and honored non-Muslims like Martin Luther King Jr. The younger brother, Dzhokhar, was a former high school honor student who foundered in his studies at college and became a high-volume pot dealer, they say. The disintegration of their family and personal failures appeared to leave the brothers with few positive in uences, no direction, and little to lose, the authors write. The vivid descriptions of the explosions and the rsthand accounts of their aftermath are beyond chilling. The randomness of who survived and who didnt is captured by a moment in which Krystle Campbell allowed a fellow spectator to take a prime viewing spot because her friend was closer to the nish line. Campbell was killed by the explosivelled backpack dropped close to where she was standing.

First on the agenda will be a board discussion of published reports regarding the City of Avon Park and the Town of Lake Placid and their investigation into the hauling of solid waste to the Okeechobee land ll instead of using Highlands Countys facility. The City of Avon Park has requested any issues of objections by commissioners to be provided to them so they in turn can be given to city council members when the issue comes up for discussion there. Most recent gures show that Avon Park spent some $282,398 in tipping fees at the Highlands County land ll between March 1 of last year and Feb. 28 this year. Lake Placid totaled up $137,062 in fees over the same period.

Both Howerton and Shoop said Legislators support half-cent school taxHowerton, Shoop take sales tax pitch to Tallahassee BY SCOTT DRESSELEditorWhen the weather heats up for spring, it puts a series of things in motion. The most noticeable, of course, is the snowbirds starting to make their way back up north. But closer to the ground, and at a much slower pace, there is another migration of sorts under way gopher tortoises are on the move. As the weather gets warmer, every reptile in the state gets out and about. Thats what they do. Theyre cold-blooded, so they all move, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) spokesman Gary Morse said. A basic need drives the tortoises to venture out food. Tortoises stay under ground in their burrows when its cold out and they come out looking for food when it warms up, Morse said. The FWC wants residents to be aware that gopher tortoises are out and about so they can help protect the creatures, which can live up to 60 years and are a vital part of the ecosystem. They are what we call a keystone species. Other species use their burrows for protection ... against heat, against water, against the cold and against other predators. They are a very important key in keeping the wildlife system sustaining, Morse said.Katara Simmons/News-SunA sign near the entrance of Highlands Hammock State Park cautions drivers to watch out for wildlife on the move.

During an outdoor as-sembly shortly after noon, Jerve encouraged students to choose their own weather, meaning they should always pick a positive sunny attitude, no matter what difcul-ties they face. If you have big dreams, its up to you, Jerve said. Its hard work, but if you get knocked down, what are you go-ing to do? Get back up, said all 560 students. Jerve then took ques-tions about the stations helicopter (a 1989 AStar), how weather oc-curs, how stations know how many people are watching (Nielsen rat-ings) and how long Jerve has had the dream to work in news (40 years). He also said that mete-orologists, who study for years, get reports right 80 percent of the time, al-though they strive to al-ways get it right. Doing each days forecast takes three to four hours of an-alyzing data from various weather sources, he said. One little girl asked if Jerve had ever photo-graphed an erupting vol-cano for the news. Jerve deffered to photojour-nalist Paul Lamison, who said hed not seen a vol-cano through his lens but had seen dolphins and tornados. Principal Melissa Blackman said that Jerve came over to take part in the schools Leader in Me program, which is working on the word synergy right now, and the schools early-re-lease Science Technolo-gy Engineering and Math (STEM) days, of which the rst theme was weather. Phil Attinger/News-SunStudents at Woodlawn Elementary School wave good-bye Friday to meteorologist Steve Jerve, photojournalist and pilot Judd Chapin, as they nish their visit to talk about leadership. Jerve encouraged students to choose sunny, by maintaining a positive attitude no matter if its raining or not.

The grand opening and ribbon-cutting will be 5-7 p.m. April 30 at 6011 U.S. 27 N. in Se-bring. Red Cross volun-teers, members of the Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce and oth-er community partners will be present, along with American Red Cross MidFlorida Regional CEO Kar-en Hagan a 29-year Red Cross veteran Regional Disaster Program Ofcer Ray Perez and Commu-nity Development Ofcer Sara Olson. We never left, said Erin Pagn, director of communications for the Mid-Florida Region. The Red Cross had a lo-cal ofce through Feb-ruary 2013, but needed a better facility with better accessibility and visibility, Pagn said. By September 2013, they had found a new building along front-age road north, near Sun N Lake Boulevard. Volunteers used per-sonal vehicles and gath-ered supplies from a local storage facility or from the Winter Haven ofce when those supplies ran low, she said. Pagn said there are 13 counties and 10 ofces in the region, so volunteers are responding to disas-ters all the time without bricks and mortar of-ces. These county lines are just dotted lines, Pagn said. It gives us a stron-ger means of supporting each other. Were able to respond and keep serv-ing. Right now, the Red Cross is gathering furni-ture and technology for the new ofce and mov-ing in the half dozen lo-cal volunteers. The region also hopes to hire a disas-ter program manager for the Polk and Highlands County territory, the for-mer Polk County Chapter area, which is one of ve territories in the 13-coun-ty region. Michael Fratti, former disaster program manag-er has taken a new posi-tion, but will continue to serve the territory until the region hires a new di-saster program manager, Pagn said.

Call 863-446-2878 TERESA STEPZINSKIThe Florida Times-UnionJACKSONVILLE Whether its Yogi and Boo Boo wandering through neighborhoods, deer feast-ing on garden veggies, rac-coons slipping through the doggie door or squirrels moving into the attic, wild-life and people in Florida share the same space more often than not. People and wildlife are living in closer proxim-ity now more than ever, said Elizabeth Fleming, se-nior Florida representative for Defenders of Wildlife, which has a program to help people co-exist with wildlife. That means many Flori-da residents have stories to tell about close encounters with wildlife Just ask Roger Gannam of Jacksonville. The morning after Gan-nam cooked burgers on his backyard grill last Au-gust, an uninvited guest showed up at the familys Barrington Oaks home off Craven Road near Beau-clerc Elementary School on the Southside. A lean black coyote chomped, tugged and shredded chunks of Gan-nams grill cover like-ly hoping to nd some leftovers. Stunned at the sight, Gannams wife and 8-year-old daughter watched from safety in-side the home as the pred-ator, which in Florida gen-erally weighs about 20 to 35 pounds, tore at the grill cover several minutes be-fore loping away in defeat. Im never going out-side again, said Gannams daughter fear creep-ing into her voice as her mother captured the inci-dent on video. In the eight years the family has lived at their home, it was the rst time a coyote came calling although raccoons, foxes, armadillos, rab-bits, eagles and osprey vis-it from the woods nearby, Gannam said. Coyotes roam all 67 counties statewide. A coy-ote in the backyard might not be routine but its not uncommon. We gured it was just passing through. howev-er, Im not so sure, said Gannam, who believes the coyote is back after he heard a very distinctive barking, whining, yipping and howling coming from his backyard about 2 a.m. late last month. The commotion went on for several minutes. Gan-nam said it matched re-cordings of wild coyote calls that he found on the Internet. The coyote visits left him alert but not over-ly alarmed. I got pretty comfort-able after doing some re-search that they are rare-ly a threat to humans, and usually not to pets. And I think it has plenty to eat in the woods, though that doesnt quite explain why it went after my grill, Gan-nam said, Wildlife authorities, however, caution that sev-eral coyote attacks on dogs and cats have been report-ed in Florida over the past few years. Reclusive and rare-ly seen, Florida panthers breed in the states south-ern tip. Experts say a few young male panthers have traveled as far as North-east Florida. And one was even documented as far north as Central Georgia near the Alabama line. But smaller, elusive bobcats live and breed here. A bobcat sought refuge from the heat beneath the wooden deck of Bill Gore-schaks home in River Oaks Plantation in St. Johns County. The animal ed when Goreschaks teenage son, David, came out onto the deck. My son was on top of the deck at the top of the stairs and the bobcat was right under him under-neath the stairs, and skit-tered across the grass about 25 feet then stopped at the edge of the grass and looked back at him, Goreschak said. That was about 18 months ago. But the bob-cats been back, he said. We saw it about six months ago. It was on the boardwalk out to our creek. It was probably about 150 feet from our house, Goreschak said. Brenda and Darrell Shields are accustomed to wildlife visiting their Jacksonville Beach home. Their yard is like an oa-sis for creatures great and small with its freshwater pond, broad-limbed oak trees and myriad plants adjacent to the neighbor-ing marsh, woods and In-tracoastal Waterway. Otters sun themselves on the couples dock. Pos-sums, armadillos and rac-coons are at home amid the many plants. Song-birds overhead in the trees. Owls, snowy egrets, king-shers, herons and wood storks line the bank of the pond. The couple keep the yard as natural as possi-ble so wildlife will feel at home. We dont try to make them pets. We want them to be wild animals. Were cultivators of nature and were glad we can help them have a place to live, Brenda Shields said. The couple recently res-cued a snowy egret that nearly drowned while sh-ing in their pond. A turtle had grabbed the egrets leg to pull it beneath the wa-ter as rain poured down. Struggling for its life, the egret was exhausted and covered with weeds, leaves and twigs oating in the pond. The Shields eased their boat out to it then brought it to shore where they rinsed clean with barely warm water. They kept the bird warm with a towel and wash-cloth then caught some minnows from the pond and put them in a dish near the egret, which perked up at the sight. When a minnow opped out onto the oor, Shields gently fed it to the egret. By morning, it had recov-ered and when the couple released it, the egret ew up into a nearby tree and then away, she said. Habitat loss due to de-velopment means wildlife and human interactions are more frequent. Consider Floridas black bear, said Janet Larson, program chairwoman of the Sierra Club Northeast Florida Group. Bears have been com-monly seen in what is now Nocatee because its con-nected generally to larg-er rural/wild lands to the south and west, said Lar-son, adding its logical there could be more hu-man-bear encounters there in the future.

www.newssun.comSunday, April 13, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A5 NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEW YOUR VIEWSWe thank the Avon Park City Council for recognizing the importance of remembering Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., one of this countrys great heroes. Dr. King should be admired by all for the courage and humanity he showed as he led by example during the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 60s. On the one hand, we think renaming Memorial Field in Kings honor is an excellent idea. The site already has a history of afterschool programs and organized sports. With vision and cooperation it can be grown into a vital neighborhood center for children a place worthy of Dr. King. On the other hand, we are disappointed in the council taking the easy way out. Yes, renaming Memorial Field is a genuine tribute, but it wasnt what they were asked to do. Citizens wanted to name a street after King like a lot of communities did a long time ago. That request, however, ruf ed feathers. First it was because the city didnt want to dishonor somebody by taking away a street already named after a gure from the citys past. We agreed with that. But there are plenty of other streets with no historical names tied to them. Then some city of cials said they were worried about the hassle for people having to change addresses. In reality however, thats not an overwhelming obstacle. The necessary paper work is a one-time, short-term effort. And as to costs, weve checked and address changes are considered a business expense, which means they are tax deductible. Law enforcement agencies also played a part, expressing concern that because there would be two streets named after King in the county there could be confusion during emergency communications. We are not sure this is the problem emergency responders say it could be. If one street is called a boulevard, simply call the other an avenue. A quick look at a county map shows there are plenty of streets with similar names. For example, we have a Maple Avenue, a Maple Drive, a Maple Lane, a Maple Road and a Maple Street, and responders seem to be capable of distinguishing between them just as they can already tell the difference between Lark Avenue, Lark Place and Lark Street or Austin Drive, Austin Road and Austin Avenue. If Memorial Field was good enough to be named after Dr. King, then so was Memorial Drive. In the end, we do not have a clear idea of why the city council copped out. We hope this issue is revisited again in the future. In the meantime, we urge the Community Redevelopment Agencys Southside Advisory Committee to lead the way in making Martin Luther King Jr. Field a place to remember for itself.No good choicesReading the April 10th letters to the editor, I have come to the conclusion that Florida has little or no choice in picking a worth while governor. The candidates to date are the incumbent, Mr. (Rick) Scott, and the challenger being Mr. (Charlie) Crist. Mr. Ludacer, in his letter, decries of how Mr. Scott earned his personal wealth. He refers to Mr. Scott as an economic chameleon. Mr. Carmonys letter tells about his staggering out-of-pocket expenses for his wifes surgery while being insured under The Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Then we have Charlie Crist, former Governor of Florida. He has been a Republican, an Independent, a Democrat and an advocate for Obama and Obamacare. Referring back to Mr. Ludacers letter, I would classify Mr. Crist as a political chameleon. Therefore, my statement about poor choice when it comes to choosing a governor.DICK FORDSebringShould be ObamacaresWhy do the republicans referring to the Affordable Heath Act, use the derogatory term Obamacare? In their ignorance they even misspelled it; the correct spelling should be Obamacares! Remember the onerous Bush Prescription Drug Plan? It was written by and for the drug companies, one of the biggest nancial contributors to the Republican party. The Affordable Care Act closes the Part D doughnut hole, the gap in drug coverage during which people with Medicare must pay the full cost of their prescriptions out of pocket. That means the drug companies lose money and that equals less money in the pockets of Republican politicians. So to borrow a line from Paul Harvey now you know the rest of the story.SANDY OLEESKYSebring LETTERS TO THE EDITORShoulde be 250 words or less and must contain the writers full name, address and telephone number for veri cation.

Yes, I am a geek). My grandmother used to send us boxes of comics that we would read and reread, and sadly, unthinkingly throw away. (I try not to think about how I couldve funded my sons college education if Id just been a little more careful). Among the comics I spent time reading were the Archie series about Archie Andrews, the kind redhead who lived in Riverdale and had adventures with his pals. His companions included the well-to-do Veronica Lodge and the plucky Betty Cooper, both of whom vied for his romantic attention. For the most part, the Archie series was a wholesome one. It was funny, but sometimes drifted into more serious subjects. Overall, the comics were a break from the real world. I havent really followed the series as an adult. There is only so much time in my day, and so much I want to read. Somewhere along the way, like many, I fell out of the habit of reading Archie. So I was surprised to learn that there is a series out there that takes the gang past high school into adulthood. Life With Archie was a title revived in 2010 that examines Archie and companys life as grownups. Apparently the creators of the comic didnt want to actually choose between his girlfriends so they have written parallel universes one where Archie marries Veronica and another where he weds Betty (I admit that if asked to choose Id vote for Betty, but thats me). These stories take different directions, and according to the Wikipedia article I read, has somewhat fallen into soap opera territory. But that wasnt the biggest surprise to greet me concerning the all-American boy. According to an article I read on www.foxnews.com, the current owners/writers of the Archie franchise, theyve decided to do something dramatic in the series next-to-last issue kill off the iconic character. The Fox News article linked to an article on www. nypost.com, which gives more detail on the decision. According to Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater, son of the characters creator John Goldwater, showing Archies death is a natural conclusion to the series. I couldnt nd much detail about what the storyline will entail except that Archie will die heroically, saving the life of a friend. The last issue of the series will deal with his friends coping with his death a year later. While Archie will continue to live in the comics that continue to explore his high school years in the present day, his upcoming death is irreversible. No fantasy, what if, or dream sequence here. Archie is going to die. I must admit this bothers me to a certain extent. You want to show Archie at the end of his life? Fine, I get that. But why kill him as a young man in his prime? Why not grant one of our favorite teenagers a long and happy life and show him dying in bed at the ripe old age of 96, surrounded by family and loved ones? This is sad. It reminds me of the old saying, the good die young. Apparently in Archies case this is true. Will I read it? I might. But then again, I may choose not to support this action with my money. In either case, Im sure Ill nd out just how Archie meets his end. And then I may indulge in a moment of silence. Thank you, Archie, for being a part of my childhood. Im sorry you have to leave us in this way. Rest in peace.Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@embarqmail.com. Visit her website at www.laurahware. com. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the staff of the News-Sun.RIP Archie Andrews LAURAS LOOKLaura WareYes, its a new century. Just look at David Letterman, Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush. Theyre all symbols of a new era. Letterman surprised the entertainment biz by suddenly announcing he intends to retire from CBSs Late Show, as soon as next year. His late-night-nemesis Jay Leno gave up his NBC Tonight Show throne last month. In making his decision, Letterman proved himself smart and a symbol of baby-boomers slowly leaving the stage. He clearly recognized a late night television generational shift and goes out on top. Letterman, 66, and Leno, 63, are baby-boomers imprinted by 1950s television who earlier worked comedy clubs. New Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon is 39. CBSs Letterman replacement, Stephen Colbert, is 49. The Johnny Carsons, the Dick Cavetts, the Merv Grif ns all gave way to babyboomers, who are now gradually yielding to a younger generation raised on a different kind of comedy and accustomed to being plugged into the Internet. Meanwhile, in politics, we see two contradictory symbols as baby boomers Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are seemingly poised to enter the nations 2016 Presidential race. When Clinton lost her 2008 Democratic nomination bid to Barack Obama, she symbolized a woman trying to break the glass ceiling for the nations highest of ce. In 2016, shed symbolize how being a woman in the race is no longer a novelty. Prediction: well before the end of this century the U.S. will shed its Fred Flintstone-era attitude towards a woman as president. In contrast, Bush is a bittersweet symbol for moderates and centrists. He expressed conservative heresy to Fox News, saying that when illegal immigrants come here its an act of love and commitment to their families. He advocates bringing back bipartisanship and respecting political foes. Which is why Buzzfeeds Ben Smith says Bush is a terrible candidate. Bush champions the return to when people cared more about substantive issues than 24/7 personal attacks on the other political tribe an era when compromise and consensus were considered strengths, not treason or wimpishness. And I think: Well, SURELY someone will step forward and offer this kind of politics again and will win big. But given what were seeing with hyper ideologists and political tribalism, is it realistic to expect a but yet this time?Joe Gandelman is a veteran journalist who wrote for newspapers overseas and in the United States.

He will appear with Central Florida Re-gional Planning Coun-cil Planner Jennifer CodoSalisbury and Highlands County Zoning Supervisor Linda Conrad asking for amendments to the High-lands County Land Use Development Plan. That action comes as part of a Joint Land Use Study done in 2011 re-garding the use of current development standards in areas around the range. It would involve the estab-lishment of three Military Airport Zones (MAZ). There are three desig-nations, with maps indi-cating a MAZ III zone that would totally encompass the cities of Avon Park and Sebring and extend well into the south end of Lake Istokpoga. Ofcials say the MAZ overlay would be estab-lished to ensure that land uses and activities are compatible with the Avon Park Air Force Range by establishing development standards and criteria for unincorporated areas of the county. Among the restric-tions for MAZ I and MAZ II which covers sparse-ly populated areas im-mediately around the Range and to the east and south of the Range ex-tending into Okeechobee and Osceola counties are height limitations for buildings to as low as 50 feet with airspace man-agement and approach procedures to take pre-cedence in setting height limitations in some of the designated areas. Street and parking lot lighting would also be limited in height and ful-ly shielded in MAZ I and MAZ II. Non-shielded x-tures without cutoffs like the decorative lamps in downtown Sebring would be prohibited in those two zones. Also indicated for those two areas are a lighting curfew after closing hours until sunrise for unneces-sary lighting by business-es as well as prohibited lighting sources and man-dates for sign lighting. In other action, com-missioners will hold a public hearing to con-sider modifying develop-ment standards Deer Lake RV Resort, a 50-acre prop-erty on County Line Road north of Avon Park. Designated as a Flex-ible Unit Development or FUD, property owners Michael and Debria Falk are asking for changes in setbacks and accessory structures on the property. They also are ask-ing for permission to al-low screen rooms, glass rooms, vinyl rooms or ca-bana rooms up to 500 square feet with plumbing as well as utility buildings of up to 100 square feet, carports and decks of up to 500 square feet decks on the front or rear yards of the lots.

OBITUARIES legislators seemed to like the idea, especially since the Highlands County School District already has a plan for the projected $4 million in revenue. The tax funds would pay for capital improvement to build new facilities and repair existing ones. Howerton said plans would include adding wings onto Lake Country Elementary and Park Elementary Schools, as well as buying new classroom technology and building a facility in Lake Placid to house school buses that cover routes on the south end of the county. Shoop said the list also includes such things as replacing worn carpet and rusted gutters. The problems with rusted out gutters is that the leaks can put water into the building foundations, which causes more extensive and expensive damage, Shoop said. Some such repairs are as many as four years overdue. Like (fellow board member) Bill Brantley said, there are items on the list since we started the walkthroughs (inspections), Shoop said. Shoop said she also was also making appointments to speak to local homeowners associations about the proposed tax. At the moment, the Highlands County School Board would like to have the tax expire at some date in the future, but a term hasnt been de ned yet. At Tuesdays school board meeting, Shoop also said legislators acknowledged that capital improvement funding was low and that a halfcent sales tax would help. It takes the pressure off them (to provide funds), Chairman Ronnie Jackson said. Highlands County, like most taxing entities, lost revenue when property values dropped in the recession, down from $5.8 billion in 2006-07 to $4.8 billion for this scal year (2013-14), almost half the original projection of $9.2 billion, said Assistant Superintendent Mike Averyt, head of operations. Superintendent of Schools Wally Cox said the district was hit again when the Florida Legislature redirected a half mill 50 cents for every $1,000 of taxable value from the districts capital improvement fund into its general fund. The change came in two 25cent installments, rst in 2008-09 and then in 200910. Averyt said it cut the capital improvement revenue from $13 million per year to $6.9 million, but Cox said a half-cent sales tax would close that gap. For scal year 2013-14, the capital outlay plan has $6.9 million in revenue, $1.6 million carried over from last year and another $15,000 in interest. However, the district needs to transfer $950,000 to the general fund for maintenance and has a debt payment of $5.1 million this year and another of $5.3 million next year, Averyt said. TAX FROM PAGE A1were the prettiest shed seen. Mae, a businessschool graduate from North Carolina, had been homeless for ve months when Espiritu met her while feeding the homeless as part of of her IB studies. I chose homelessness and hunger because, how hard could it be? Espiritu said during a speech at Thursdays bene t banquet for Sebring Highs IB program. Espiritu discovered it was hard to have empathy, but she learned it from visiting with Janie Mae, who had lost her husband and daughter in a car accident. A homeless man told Espiritu that Janie Mae had considered jumping from the East Colonial Drive overpass onto Interstate 4, but didnt. She wanted to see Espiritu again. She told me as long as people like me, with hands like mine, are willing to touch hands calloused by the streets, there is hope, Espiritu said. Thursdays bene t banquet at Chateau lan co-sponsored by the School Board of Highlands County and Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center raised funds for Sebrings International Baccalaureate program. The accelerated college-preparation program stresses high academic and creativity standards, as well as a global perspective. Today, more than a million students are enrolled in IB programs in approximately 3,600 schools in 145 countries. There is a perception of students today as being self-involved and not hard workers, said JoAnna Cochlin, IB coordinator for the Highlands County School District. They come to us amazing people. We help them grow their potential. The local program will have 171 enrolled in 2014-15, Cochlin said, with 69 incoming freshmen accepted into the program and 52 incoming juniors, Cochlin said. Students research projects this year included studying the effects of Wet n Wild amusement park rides on the human body. Community service was the rst-ever Care Mob on March 1, where 99 students helped repaint and spruce up the Highlands Art Leagues art village in Sebring. IB senior Kelby Mahoney, who spoke about the traits the program stresses, said the program forces students to step out of comfort zones, learn to talk with and understand others, take risks, ask questions and consider the world around them. IB alumna Bridget Egan, class of 2012, said the program helped her learn to appreciate different people while gaining con dence to share her opinions. Shes currently at Florida International University, with plans to transfer to the University of Florida then to Harvard Business School. While her travels as a model take her all over the world, Egan said she loves Miamis cosmopolitan culture.

So bless the memories within your heart. So if you need me, call and I will come. And if you listen with your heart, youll hear, And then, when you must come this way alone, A Comfort To Those Who Mourn: Approximately 350 oth-er species make use of go-pher tortoise burrows, studies have shown. We try to raise aware-ness and set precautions for people this time of year when the tortoises are very active. Highlands County certainly has its share of gopher tortois-es, so it is of importance to residents and visitors there to know how to keep them safe, Morse said. The tortoises are espe-cially vulnerable when their slow-motion roam-ing takes them across a street. After all, its not like they can jump out of the way of a passing car. To make matters even worse, some drivers may even take aim at them. In 2012, Clemson stu-dent Nathan Weaver was trying to nd a way to help protect turtles (and, by default, tortoises) as they cross roadways. In-stead, he ended up dis-covering that some driv-ers will go out of their way to turn them into a speed bump. In the span of an hour, seven out of 267 cars near the Clemson campus purposely crushed rubber turtles Weaver placed on the busy streets. Morse knows that inci-dents between cars and tortoises are inevitable, but was willing to give drivers more credit than that. I dont think drivers purposely hit them, but it does happen, which is why we have the informa-tion and precautions in place to help keep them safe, he said. The FWC encourages drivers to slow down on highways to help protect gopher tortoises. If one is crossing the road, it is OK to pick it up and move it to safety but keep it pointed in the direction it was heading. And while the tortoise will probably appreciate a lift across the street, what-ever you do, do not put it into any nearby water. Its a tortoise (which is a landbased animal), not a tur-tle. Gopher tortoises dont know how to swim. The FWC has launched a smartphone app for both iPhone and Android that will let people to re-port to the FWC when and where they spot gopher tortoises. When users of the app take a photograph of a tortoise or its burrow, the photo and its GPS co-ordinates will be sent au-tomatically to the FWC. An interactive map of the sightings is coming soon, the FWC reports. App-generated data col-lected by citizen scientists will help guide conser-vation of this threatened species, the FWC said. Bi-ological information and a quiz testing the users knowledge of the only tor-toise east of the Mississippi River also are included in the app. The FWCs Gopher Tor-toise Management Plan spells out goals and ac-tions to protect the tor-toises, their burrows shel-tering hundreds of other species and their habi-tat. Prescribed burning is critical to maintaining the sandy, open elds and forests and the growth of soft-stemmed plants that tortoises need to survive. To access the manage-ment plan, go to MyFWC. com/Wildlife and select Managed Species. People can report in-jured or dead gopher tor-toises to the FWC by call-ing 850-921-1030 during weekdays or by contacting the Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-3922. Harming a gopher tortoise, its bur-rows or eggs is against the law.Staff writer Samantha Ghol-ar contributed to this report.

Florida Fish and Wild-life Conservation Com-mission biologist Tim Dellinger says a survey-or recently spotted the female crane in Glades County on the lakes western shore. The bird was one of 37 chicks hatched from 289 captive-bred cranes re-leased between 1999 and 2008. Dellinger tells The Miami Herald that less than a dozen birds from the ock survive, includ-ing just a handful of the chicks.

In 2005 there was a 22 percent increase, and in 2006 there was a 42 percent increase in the property values of Highlands County. In 2007, however, there was a sharp decline and it has been down every year since then. Right now we are back at about the level of 2002 for the county, McIntyre said. The question is, where are we going from here? Is our market in recovery? Recent numbers showed the county at a small decrease, but McIntyre was optimistic that by the end of the scal year in July housing values will show an increase. Highlands Countys trends usually lag behind the coasts by about a year. Many coastal areas are showing positive growth. Signs are showing that the resale market may be getting stronger in our area, however, there is still not a lot of construction going on, McIntyre said. We wont know for sure if there is an increase in Highlands County until July rst, said McIntyre. But we are still making changes and analyzing until then. McIntyre weaved comedy and serious information throughout his presentation and gave some anecdotes about some of the things that he has experienced over the years as an appraiser. A lady who lived in Istokpoga called and asked me to re-evaluate her home. I asked what the problem was and she said buzzards have overtaken my house, McIntyre said. Buzzards have decided to take her house over as a roosting area. Every night they come to roost. McIntyre said the buzzards were breaking off the TV antennae, tearing up the screen room of the pool and that the whole roof was covered with carcasses. Since buzzards are endangered, they could not be eradicated so McIntyre suggested that she could call the game commission and ask them if they are your buzzards or are they my buzzards? If they are your buzzards you owe me a bill to repair my home. Since then, the buzzards have left the house, McIntyre reported. The Student Of The Month and the Teacher Of The Month were awarded during the chamber luncheon as well. Sereana McMillan was awarded the teacher of the month by the Lake Placid Noon Rotary, McMillan is a teachers aid for kindergarten and some rst graders at the Montessori Academy in Lake Placid. This was such a surprise, McMillan said. I had no idea where I was going today, all I was told was to dress nicely. Jenna Blount was awarded the student of the month. It is an honor, it is really cool, she said. Blount participates in her local church, mission activities, serving as an intern, nursery worker and Vocation Bible School leader. She has also worked for Camp Joy, which is a camp for children with disabilities. She is the treasurer for the senior class, a member of the National Honor Society and is active in student government. She is a member of both soccer and tennis teams, and a one year member of the golf team. Blount does all this while maintaining a 5.9 weighted GPA. She plans on getting her degree in graphic design and visual arts.Lake Placid Chamber hears hopeful housing market report from McIntyre Rod Lewis/News-SunEileen May (left) presents the student of the month award to Jenna Blount.

www.newssun.com Sunday, April 13, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A11 BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com SEBRING The mo mentum builder that Thursdays win over Avon Park could have been, wasnt to be Fri day night as the Blue Streaks dropped their regular sea son, district nale to Hardee, 3-2, at Firemens Field. Starter Everett Hurst pitched well, but was dodging bullets early on. With two out in the top of the rst an error was followed by a sin gle to put two on before a grounder to short end ed it. Again in the second, an error and single had the Wildcats threatening to get on the board before Hurst got an inning-end ing ground out. The top of the third was a lot less nerve-rack ing as Hurst retired the side in order, and things were looking up when the Streaks got broke through in the bottom of the frame. David DeGenaro lead it off with a single and Justin Bickman dropped down a sacrice bunt BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com Thursdays loss in the backyard brawl to Se bring proved to just be a bump in the road for the Red Devils. While their offense was stied by the Streaks, and still wasnt up to its highscoring standards Friday against visiting Sarasota Booker, they did get the job done in a 4-2 win. We bounced back with a good win, head coach Whit Cornell said afterward. Trey Frazier pitched a great game and we got back on track. A great game indeed as Frazier threw an efcient seven innings, need ing just 88 pitches, and surrendering just one earned run. The offense, mean while, got the runs it needed for the win. In the second, Kyle Kel ley lead off with a single up the middle and one out later moved to third on Kyle Thompsons dou ble. Alfred Brown then brought both runners in with a single to center. Kelley was in the mix of scoring in the next in ning as well as the Devils plated two more. Mason Jahna lined a single to right with one out before Kelley sent a one-strike pitch screaming down the left-eld line. The only ques tion was whether it would stay fair or hook foul. That question was quickly answered when the ball hit the foul pole for a two-run hom er. The Tornadoes would get on the board in the fourth when Albert De Los Santos was award ed rst on a catchers in terference call and would come around on singles by Sam Proctor and Ar mando Benitez. They would strike again in the seventh SPORTS BY ZACH MILLER Special to the News-Sun ENGLEWOOD Lem on Bay High School se nior Jessica Lown and Sebring senior Micaela DeVane battled for near ly two hours on Thurs day, but each teams fate was sealed before the end of their match. Lown eventually won the No. 2 singles match 6-7(5), 6-2, 6-1, ending a 5-0 victory for Lemon Bay to make them Re gion 2A-6 champions. The win sends the Manta Rays to the state tournament for the fifth straight year. They won Thursdays match with depth, as Linda Antonova, Sar ah Lown, Maddie Casad and Ashley Tormey put any anxiety about Lowns match to rest by winning their singles matches in straight sets. I was glad that (Jes sica Lown) came back and won it, it showed a lot of character on her part and a lot of class, Lemon Bay coach Darrell Roach said. She pret ty much knew the team would make it even if she didnt win, but she didnt let up and she fought hard all the way to the end and thats go ing to bode well for her at the state tournament when she gets into trou ble and is able to be re silient and come back. The Class 2A state championships get un derway Monday in Cas selberry. The Manta Rays enter the tournament red hot after dominating district play last week and shut ting out opponents in re gional matches on backto-back days. They beat Bishop Verot 4-0 on Wednesday. Playing on consecutive days wasnt a big deal to Lemon Bay, which played both matches at home, but was a major challenge for Sebring. The Blue Streaks, mak ing their first region al finals appearance since 2003, beat Golden Gate on Wednesday af ter the match was rained out on Tuesday and tried to move the Thurs day match to today, but couldnt because Lemon Bays prom is tonight. I thought if we could just have a rest day in between, because we drove three hours to Na ples and a good two hours here and theyre tired, Sebring coach Jane Hollinger said. But they did well, so I cant complain. I think (DeV ane) played the best ten nis shes ever played. I think all of the girls stepped up. We had our No. 3 (Alaina Keith) not feel well, so we bumped everybody up. We threw in No. 6 (Amanda Rios) at the No. 5 position and she did great, Im very proud of them. Lady Streaks soured at Lemon Bay Dan Hoehne/News-Sun les Micaela DeVane put up forth a monumental effort Thursday, but her and the Lady Streaks would come up short against Lemon Bay in the Class 2A Regional nal. BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com AVON PARK As the old saying goes, it doesnt matter the records when theses two teams get to gether. Such was the case Thursday night at Head Field, where a scufing Blue Streak squad met up with a team of Red Devils that had been on a roll. And perhaps it was the spark Sebring needed, the expected jolt of this ageold rivalry, as they came away with an 8-2 win. The Streaks took the early lead off Kenny McGrath, when Jordan Aus tin raced home on a passed ball, but Avon Park tied it in the bottom of the second on an Alex Go mez home run toward the scoreboard in left. Blue Streaks down Red Devils Dan Hoehne/News-Sun David DeGenaro attened this pitch for a rst-inning single in Sebrings Thursday night win at Avon Park.

Wow, what a great day for our track athletes, Green Dragon head coach Scott Morgan said. We have 15 moving on.

NOT EVER. 4x4 RUNS GREAT Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Justin Bickman can only watch as Alex Gomezs drive to left clears the wall for a home run Thursday night. Sebring then rallied in the third to take a lead it would not relinquish. Austin started it with a single to left and one out later moved to third on a Matt Portis single to right. Austin came in again on a pitch that got away as Seth Cannady was drawing a walk, and Josh Crouch sent a single to right to load the bases. David DeGenaro then drew a walk to push Por tis across, and during the next two at bats, a ur ry of wild pitches and passed balls brought three more runs in to give Sebring a 6-1 cush ion. From there, Streak southpaw Jonathan Struck worked through scoreless innings, strik ing out eight in his time on the mound, before giving way to Crouch with two outs in the sixth. Avon Park would scratch the scoreboard again in the bottom of the seventh when Kyle Kelley doubled and would later be driven in on a Trey Frazier sacri ce y. But Crouch would soon retire the side and secure the Sebring win. This is a game you dont have to get the kids up for, Blue Streak head coach Jayson DeWitt said. And it showed, they played a real good game. The win moved the Streaks to 8-12 heading into Fridays district con test with Hardee. For Avon Park, the loss snapped a fourgame winning streak and brought their record to 16-4 heading into Fri days non-district tilt with Sarasota Booker. STREAKS FROM PAGE A11 when, with two out, An thony Swanson singled and came in on a Berry Holland double to right. But Frazier soon got a grounder to short for the nal out to secure the win. Now 17-4 on the season, the Devils get set for the nal week of the regular season before hosting the District 9-4A tournament. They will travel to Wau chula to face Hardee Tues day and welcome DeSoto to Head Field Thursday. AP FROM PAGE A11 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Mackenzie Hunt reaches above the fence to rob State College of Florida of a home run. This would prove crucial as the Lady Panthers held on for a 9-7 win in the opener of Thursdays doubleheader. South Florida would, however, come up short in the nightcap as a controversial call at the plate left them on the wrong end of a 9-8 score. The let-down seemed to have a carry-over effect as well, as on a trip to St. Petersburg to make up for Tuesdays rain out, the Panthers tanks were empty in a lopsided sweep. The team returns home for more conference action Tuesday with a visit from Hillsborough. LADY PANTHERS RISE, THEN FALL TIM REYNOLDS AP Basketball Writer MIAMI LeBron James scored 36 points, and the Miami Heat moved back atop the Eastern Conference standings by running past the Indiana Pacers 98-86 on Friday night. The Heat scored the rst 16 points of the sec ond half and werent in trouble again. Miami (54-25) leads the Pacers (54-26) by a half-game in the East race. Mario Chalmers scored 13, Udonis Haslem add ed 11 and Chris Bosh and Ray Allen each scored 10 for the Heat. Paul George scored 22 for Indiana, which got 18 from David West, 12 from Luis Scola and 11 from Lance Stephenson. Pacers center Roy Hib bert had only ve points and one rebound, grab bing it with just over 2 minutes left in the game. Miami has games against Atlanta, Washing ton and Philadelphia left. Win them all, and the Heat would have homecourt advantage through at least the East nals which went seven games against Indiana last sea son. The Pacers who sat their starters against Mil waukee on Wednesday in an effort to rest for this one still play Oklaho ma City and Orlando. In the opening min utes of the second half, a predictably tight game turned into a surprise blowout. The Heat were up three at the half, then opened the third on a 16-0 run. Chalmers opened the barrage with a 3-point er and James hit a pair of free throws after taking a hard foul from West in transition. Heat back atop East, beat Pacers LeBron scores 36, Heat beat Pacers 98-86 to move atop Eastern Conference

Ty Little followed with an RBI single that moved Bickman to third. Later, a pick-off attempt was thrown to third, with no elder on hand to re ceive the throw, and Bick man scampered in with the ball rolling away. Little was also waved around, but a good throw in nabbed at the plate. Sebring would get run ners to third in both the fourth, and sixth, but would leave then strand ed, while Hurst worked out of threats in both the fourth and fth to main tain the 2-0 lead. But Hardee would tie it in the sixth. With one out, Justin Dolcater drew a walk, but stayed put as Hurst struck Tanor Durden out. But with his pitch count nearing 100, this would end his night and send a call to the bullpen. A hit batter, wild pitch and a Kris Johnson single later, however, and the ty ing runs had come across. And in the seventh, an other bout of wildness would haunt the Streaks as a walk, wild pitch and single allowed Cody Spen cer to race across with the go-ahead run. Little would single with two outs in the bottom of the seventh, giving Se bring one last glimmer of hope, but it would not come to be. Now 2-4 in District 115A, the Blue Streaks are locked into the third seed, and will start the district tournament with a re match with the Wildcats, on the road Tuesday, April 22. Prior to that, Sebring will look to build up some momentum this week with a home date against George Jenkins Tuesday and a trip to Port St. Lucie Thursday. SEBRING FROM PAGE A11 Jacqueline Barajas, Ga briella Perez and Gloria Elizabeth. Bodon was also part of the 4X400 relay team that is moving on, with Sonia Becerra, Kathryn LeBlanc and Belkis Rivero. LeBlanc and Becerra also qualied by taking third and fourth, respec tively, in the pole vault. Perez would also get two more advancements, in both the 1,600and 3,200-meter runs. For the Green Drag on boys, Julian Obregon, Mercer Gabriel, Scott Sigrist and Dalton Shel ton qualied in the 4X800, with Shel ton also mov ing on in the 1,600 and 3,200. Dalton Hillier moved ahead to regionals in the pole vault. For the Lady Red Dev ils, Imani Tate contin ued her strong throwing with qualifying nish es in both the discus and shot put, with Genesis Moro also moving on in the discus. Lashady Love won the 200-meter dash (27.37 seconds) and took second in the triple jump (31feet, 6-inches). She was also part of the 4X100 and 4X400 relay teams to move on with Kenneda Jones, Keyanes saha Fullerd and Britta ny Egan. Shanice Leverson then won the 100-meter hur dles and nished sec ond in the 300 hurdles to move on in both. The Avon Park boys also saw advancement from their 4X400 relay team of Ahmaad Smith, Christian Suarez, Warren Buckner and Dre Neely. Josh Jones also moved on with a third-place n ish in the 200-mete dash and fourth in the high jump. The Region 3-2A meet takes place Wednesday, April 16, at Berkeley Prep in Tampa, beginning at Noon. TRACK FROM PAGE A11 Wow, what a great day for our track athletes. Scott Morgan Lake Placid head coach Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Josh Crouch res to rst for an out in Fridays contest. JOE KAY AP Baseball Writer CINCINNATI Tam pa Bay left-hander Matt Moore plans to play catch in a few days to see how his left elbow is feeling and decide whether he can try to recover from his latest problem with out surgery. Moore went on the 15day disabled list Tuesday and had an MRI. The Rays are waiting for a team doctor to return from a trip over the week end and compare the lat est scans to earlier ones. Moore also experienced elbow soreness last year while going 17-4 with a 3.29 ERA for the Rays. Moore said on Friday before the opening game of a series against the Reds that the elbow felt better than it did a year ago, when he spent the month of August on the disabled list. The way it feels com pared to last time, I feel a whole lot better, he said. I feel Im in a lot better place. I think in the next three to ve days, we should have a decent idea which direction this is going. Left-hander Cesar Ra mos, who competed for the nal spot in the rota tion during spring train ing, will take Moores place on Sunday for the nal game of the series. Ramos has made four relief appearances total ing four innings. Its based on the spring training he had, a lot of the conversation we had with him and the oth er pitchers as we broke spring training, manager Joe Maddon said. Were trying to stay true to our word. We thought it was the right thing to do now, to give him that opportu nity. Maddon estimated that Ramos could throw as many as 75 pitches on Sunday. The Rays could make a move to bolster their bullpen for Sundays game, depending upon whether they need to use their relievers a lot in the rst two games of the se ries. Before Fridays game, the Rays recalled out elder Kevin Kiermaier from Triple-A Durham. He took the roster spot opened when the Rays optioned left-hander Jeff Beliveau to Durham on Wednesday. Rays Moore will try to throw in a few days MCT photo Matt Moore is opting for rest to see if that helps his sore elbow.

CANCER You have a rare opportunity to show off your skills this week, Cancer. When your talents are on display, dont worry about hogging that spot-light. Enjoy your time in the limelight. LEO Take some time for quiet inspiration, Leo. It is just what you need after a busy week in which your stamina was put to the test. Rest and recharge for a few days. VIRGO Tasks at work have certainly tried your patience, Virgo. Just when you are settled in, you get pulled in another direc-tion very quickly. Save up those vacation days.

My boy-friend of four years, Ian, and I took a break from our relationship for two months because he was scared hed miss out on the single life. We started hanging out again soon af-ter, and everything fell into place. We were talking recent-ly, and he mentioned that hes planning to move across the country to San Francisco to be near his family. He made it plain he wants to live on the West Coast forever. I am close to my family closer than Ian is to his. Were both 24, and while were not going to get en-gaged anytime soon, Im not sure what to do. We love each other, but the geography is causing so many issues. Please ad-vise. NEW YORK GIRLDEAR N.Y. GIRL: Its good that you and Ian arent planning on becom-ing engaged anytime soon, because you have some serious thinking to do. If you plan on having a fam-ily and want your parents to be close to their grand-children, it would be bet-ter for you to nd anoth-er boyfriend. Im advising you and Ian to take an-other break this time for YOUR benet to see which is more important to you: the man or the lo-cation. DEAR ABBY: This issue with my wife may seem trivial, but its making me crazy. I like to cook; she doesnt. When I cook its an expression of love, and our family sits down together to enjoy the meal. We dont watch TV and we dont an-swer the phone. Sounds ideal, wouldnt you say? The problem is, after I put the food on the table, my wife gets up and starts pulling other food from the fridge to microwave. Or shell start making a salad. These last-minute ad-ditions make me furious. She knows it, but wont stop. Either she doesnt want the leftover to go bad or she thinks some-thing is missing from the table. I say she should pre-pare these additions while Im making dinner so ev-erything will be on the ta-ble at the same time, or else forget it. What do you think? STEAMING IN THE KITCHEN IN TEXASDEAR STEAMING: Is the layout of your kitch-en conducive to tandem cooking? If its not, that may be why your wife goes in there after youre no longer using it. Do you tell your wife what you will be preparing for dinner and ask if there is anything else she wants included? That may prompt her to think ahead so she wouldnt have to get up and leave the table. If the answer to my questions is yes, then there may be something going on in your relation-ship for which shes trying to punish you. DEAR ABBY: My daugh-ter goes to a preschool in a church where we are not members. Pastor Joe is very involved with the classes, often chat-ting with the parents and calling them by their rst names. I have seen him around town various times, but Im never sure how to ad-dress him. I feel strange calling him Pastor since he isnt my minister. On the other hand, calling him Joe doesnt quite seem right either. How should a man of the cloth be greeted on the street? FEELING AWKWARD IN JAMESTOWN, N.Y.DEAR FEELING AWK-WARD: I think youre ask-ing the wrong person. Why not ask HIM how hed like to be addressed? I remem-ber a delightful priest in Chicago, who when meet-ing people would immedi-ately say, Call me John. I used to refer to him as Fa-ther Call-Me-John.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil-lips, and was founded by her moth-er, Pauline Phillips.

Join us at Crown Pointe Assisted Living Facility for Easter Bunny Pictures! Monday, April 14th 5pm-7pm at 5005 Sun n Lake Blvd., just one mile down from the hospital.863-386-1060www.cpcommunities.com Welcome to the roost! Readers may be following the suggestion made that the Bluebird Tail located on the state-owned parcel of Royce Ranch be named in honor of Bud Warren, who was devoted to that projects success. Our hope is that the Highlands County Audubon Society will act quickly and we can all breath a sigh of relief. In the meantime, let us enjoy the Creators gifts, especially birds and all of the great outdoors. A good gift to contemplate would be the red-bellied woodpecker (Centurus carolinus), other names: zebra, guinea sapsucker, orange sapsucker, and cham-chack. The black-and-white, zebra-like striping of the back of this bird, together with the red crown and neck (not the whole head) will make identi cation easy. The female is exactly like her mate, but lacks the red on the forehead. Though there is a reddish wash on the belly, it can rarely be seen except when the bird ies off. At other times, it is against the treetrunk or whatever perch the bird is using, and therefore invisible. This is probably the most abundant woodpecker in Florida and occurs all over the state at all seasons. The harsh chrring note is a familiar sound and at once recognizable when one has connected it with the bird. The bird nests from April to June and both male and female work very hard to excavate a hole in a dead tree or in decayed stubs of palmettos. The bird will use man-made boxes and will enlarge the entrance hole to suit it.The size of the bird from 8.5-10 inches should be taken into consideration when making the box. Four to six white, glossy eggs are laid, and by the end of May the rst young to be hatched may be seen climbing to high branches of the home tree, or those close by. The birds food is two-thirds vegetable and one-third insect matter. This consists of acorns, beechnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, wild fruits, and perhaps some corn. When they attack our bird-feeder, we notice they make every effort to get at the black-oil sun ower seeds. The bird will devour ants, grasshoppers, caterpillars, lizards, beetles, stinkbugs, tree frogs, eggs of cockroaches, and wood-boring beetles and is fond of poison ivy seeds, mulberries, woodbine, fox grapes and the mast of the sour-gum. The one criticism against the race in certain sections is its fondness for oranges. But as it pecks holes in dead ripe fruit, and patrols the ground under the trees to consume whole dropped and decaying oranges, it is a valuable grove and forest scavenger, as well as a truck crop protector. The bird is on the University Department of Agriculture honor roll. Nick and Jan Swanson sent in a couple of photos they took of a Florida sand-hill crane sitting on one egg, and a nest made of a couple sticks. What a lazy couple of birds. The nest has been placed on the bare wood of a dock. I hope the Swansons will let me know how this plays out so that the readers will be informed. Until next time, please remember to send me any unusual bird or wildlife sightings (just as Nick and Jan did) so that readers can enjoy such antics too. As always, get out there and enjoy the Creators outdoors; its a quality of life activity that will add years to your life and life to your years.Hank Kowalski lives in Lake Placid and is a graduate of the Dr. Reed Bowman Bird Study Course, given at South Florida State College.

OUTDOORS BIRDS & OTHER WILD THINGSHank Kowalski Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Exciting things are happening at the Caladium Arts and Crafts Cooperative in Lake Placid. Many changes have been taking place during the past year to better meet the needs of members. According to Judy Nicewicz, president of the coop, We have had many challenges this year, but we have made the necessary changes to build an even stronger future. We are thriving and look forward to future growth. By changing the coops Bylaws and Standing Rules, we are now able to increase membership opportunities, Nicewicz added. Some of the changes include allowing artists and crafters to have full membership without the need to work counter and special event hours. The previous work obligation made membership dif cult for some of the older members with health issues and for younger members who hold fulltime jobs. Members who choose the new option change their percentage to a 6040 percent split, with the artist receiving 60 percent for any of his or her sales. The new option also creates an opportunity for people who do not live in the Lake Placid area to become full members. Memberships where counter and special event hours continue to be required, still receive a 75 percent commission for work sold. The annual membership fees remain the same. Another important change to the Bylaws was the removal of the noncompetition clause that prevented co-op artists from selling their art through other local outlets. Nicewicz said, We believe it is important that we welcome all artists and crafters and to encourage them to consider the co-op as a place where their work will be displayed and sold in a professional manner. A new membership category has been created for non-artists who want to support the organization nancially and administratively. The new Patron of the Arts members pay an annual membership fee of $125. In addition to a tax-exempt contribution to the co-op, Patrons can vote at membership meetings and serve on the board or as an of cer. To create a more ef cient board of directors, the six vice presidents are now Standing Committee Chairs without some of their previous board responsibilities. Student arts and crafters are also encouraged to become a part of the co-op. The annual membership fee of $125 is waived for those 18 or younger.Changes at the Caladium Co-op

Youre brilliantly funny, youve proven yourself in the Comedy Central farm leagues, and odds are you will be a worthy successor to David Letterman. But forgive us if we spend a few wistful moments thinking about what might have been. Nothing personal here, but your anointment is just so, well, predictable. Yes, theres big bucks at stake, even in the shrinking world of ratings and advertising dollars that late-night TV has become. And CBS, the broadest of the major broadcasters with a strategy that aims for the most viewers, not niche audiences, is the least likely to take a chance. But the swiftness of the networks announcement Thursday about Colbert allowed little breathing room for online and water-cooler speculation, the kind that can be both juicy and illuminating. There are other engaging entertainers around, whether they have or havent occupied a talk show chair. And did the last network late-night job likely to be open for years have to go to yet another man? And did it have to be another white guy? Here are a few who could have been contenders, worthy competitors to NBCs Jimmy Fallon and ABCs Jimmy Kimmel:Ellen DeGeneresIn the post-Oprah Winfrey world of daytime talk, DeGeneres holds fast as queen bee despite heavyweight challengers, including Katie Couric. DeGeneres easy charm has translated to the biggest stage, hosting the Academy Awards, so her mainstream credentials are proven. Plus, she can dance.Tina Fey and Amy PoehlerTogether or separately. They always kill, whether on Saturday Night Live, on their respective sitcoms ( Rock, Parks and Recreation) or on the Golden Globes, where they bring their sassy and oh-so-21st-century female empowerment vibe. Picture that in late-night and try not to smile.Chelsea HandlerShes done her time in the minor leagues and indicated shes ready to leave her E! Entertainment Television talk show. Yes, she might have to soften her tough-chick persona for network TV and the blue jokes de nitely would go, but she would still bring the rarity of free-wheeling sexiness to late-night.Neil Patrick HarrisSo obvious. The CBS sitcom star (the just-ended How I Met Your Mother) is a jack-of-all-entertainment who handles stage and screen with the greatest of ease. Sing, dance, whatever; he could probably have done Late Show Shakespeare soliloquies with the air to make them online sensations. Louis C.K. Who can deny that great stand-up comedians can make great hosts? Hes a true original, a wily veteran of stage and sitcom but, at 46, still comfortably within the age range of late-nights new young guns who are following 60-somethings Letterman and Jay Leno. Hey, Colbert is 49 and hes cool.Jamie FoxxWant energy, con dence and a hosts roster of Alist colleagues a show can summon at will? Heres your man. Foxx is an Oscar-caliber movie star as well as a comedian and singer, with a winning unpredictability that could lure new viewers, especially the advertiser-favored young ones Fallon is drawing to Tonight.Lynn Elber can be reached at lelber@ap.org and on Twitter@lynnelber.Who else was worthy of Late Show prize?

Star Farms 5600 Kenilworth Blvd. Sebring, FL 33870863-655-3485Mon-Fri 7am-5pm TODD MCCARTHYThe Hollywood ReporterLOS ANGELES The pre-pre-season opening kickoff of the 2014 National Football League schedule is returned for a score in Draft Day, an entirely conventional serio-comic sports world melodrama that pushes its buttons with undeniable professional nesse. In his most effective full star turn in perhaps a decade, Kevin Costner dominates as the greenhorn general manager of the beleaguered Cleveland Browns who could emerge from the heavy shadow of his late revered father with the successful handling of the annual draft of college players. Most great sports stories center on an underdog and Costners Sonny Weaver Jr. can claim that status on at least two counts: Hes a man well into his 50s who has never been able to make his own mark due to his dads legendary status, and his team is Cleveland, a dyedin-the-wool football town that hasnt had a team win it all since 1964. Further cementing Sonnys status as a late bloomer, if not something of a Peter Pan, is that hes just learned hes to become a dad for the rst time, courtesy of his secret relationship with one of the teams nancial executives, Ali (Jennifer Garner). From every point of view, Sonnys got something to prove. The screenwriting team of Rajiv Joseph and Scott Rothman make it easy even for the uninitiated to get with the program, using real ESPN announcers and plenty of other commentary to clarify the workings of the draft, as NFL teams annually line up and sometimes jockey for position to select new players; although the order of selection is theoretically based on performance from the previous season, teams can bargain with each other for higher picks, negotiations which involve last-minute phone calls right down the wire and owe much both to shrewd talent assessment skills and great gambling instincts. This season, the number one pick belongs to Seattle and the consensus favorite for player to be signed rst is star Wisconsin quarterback Bo Callahan (Josh Pence), whos the sort of talent you build a team around. Seattle wants to claim him but, under pressure from the intimidating Cleveland team owner (Frank Langella) to make a splash, Sonny negotiates rst dibs on Callahan for a tall price, that of the Browns rst draft picks for the next three years. Although the whole football world seems to think Callahan is the latest incarnation of Joe Montana or Tom Brady, Sonny isnt so sure, prompting alternately amusing and concerning probes into the QBs past behavior. Not only that, but Sonny has long had his eye on two other great college players, played by Chadwick Boseman (from ) and actual Houston running back Arian Foster. But he would seem to have given up on them by dealing for Callahan, a move that has understandably infuriated the Browns present quarterback (Tom Welling). Its Sonnys lot to take a lot of crap from almost everyone around him, particularly from his disrespectful coach (Denis Leary), who loves to shove his Super Bowl ring from his Dallas days in his face, and even from his mother (a most amusing Ellen Burstyn), who selects this of all days to conduct a memorial ceremony for her husband and cast his ashes upon the practice eld named for him. But making Sonny human, and warming up the lm so much that even non-fan female viewers will likely nd it engaging, is his relationship with Ali. Real life would probably see a man in Sonnys high-pressure situation telling the woman hes just learned hes knocked up to please put their needed conversation on hold for 24 hours. Raised a Browns fan, Ali is into the draft frenzy herself, realistic and helpful to Sonny when he needs it. All the same, the two amusingly retreat to a storeroom several times in an attempt at some private moments, which seldom go uninterrupted for long. Garners a treat here.

MOVIE REVIEW CRITICS RATING: DAVID BAUDERAssociated PressNEW YORK Kiss made up, but its music went unheard. Nirvana used four women rockers to sing Kurt Cobains songs. And Bruce Springsteens E Street Band predictably turned its honor into a marathon. The three acts were ushered into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday in a colorful induction ceremony at Brooklyns Barclays Center. They were joined by the blue-eyed soul duo Hall & Oates, British rocker Peter Gabriel, 1970s folkie Cat Stevens and the absent Linda Ronstadt. Nirvana was the emotional centerpiece. The trio rooted in the Seattle-area punk rock scene was voted into the hall in its rst year of eligibility. Smells Like Teen Spirit hit like a thunderclap upon its 1991 release, but the band was done after Kurt Cobain committed suicide 20 years ago this month. Nirvana fans walk up to me every day and say thank you for the music, said Krist Novoselic, the bands bass player, who was inducted with drummer Dave Grohl. When I hear that, I think of Kurt Cobain. A subdued Courtney Love, Cobains widow, was booed by some in the audience. She said Cobain would have appreciated the honor. Nirvana tapped into a voice that was yearning to be heard, said former R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe, who described how the band made a community of the disaffected. Joan Jett was chosen to sing Smells Like Teen Spirit. Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, St. Vincent and Lorde each took turns at the microphone, with Lordes version of All Apologies ending the night. Kiss was responsible for pre-ceremony drama. The two original members still active, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, thought the replacements for ex-bandmates Ace Frehley and Peter Criss should perform at the ceremony instead of the original four. The result was Kisss music went unheard. Still, the estranged band members spoke warmly of each other when the quartet appeared behind the microphone. In and out of makeup, Ill always be the Catman, said drummer Criss, referencing his makeup in the band. Youve got to forgive to live. The band received a crowd-pleasing endorsement from Rage Against the Machines Tom Morello, who said Kiss inspired him to play music. He said he had to ght off high school bullies who ridiculed him for liking the band. Tonight proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the high school bullies and critics were wrong, he said. Kiss fans were right. Springsteens 1999 entrance into the Rock Hall without the E Street Band was a sore point for some of its members. They got their due Thursday in the sidemen category, although it was a posthumous honor for saxman Clarence Clemons and keyboard player Danny Federici. Their leader recalled a kitchen conversation 15 years ago with his buddy and bandmate, Steve Van Zandt. Springsteen took pride in his independence and the band was only beginning to repair relations after a decade apart. He had no problem being inducted alone. Steve said, yes, I understand, Springsteen recalled, but Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, thats the legend. So the band, known for its long concerts, made up for lost time. Their induction took 85 minutes, as individual members ignored requests to keep their speeches short. Then they took the stage for performances of The E Street Shuf e, The River and an epic Kittys Back. Lucky for you, there are only two of us, Daryl Hall said when he was inducted with partner John Oates. The duo was a mainstay on the radio during the late 1970s and early 1980s. They performed some of their hits Shes Gone, I Cant Go For That and You Make My Dreams Come True although hitting some of the high notes again was a struggle. Hall said he was surprised to learn that his act was the only Philadelphia-bred band in the hall. Ronstadt, the sexy siren of the Los Angeles country-rock scene of the 1970s, couldnt make it to her induction. Now retired, she suffers from Parkinsons disease and doesnt travel much. Glenn Frey, who played with fellow future Eagle Don Henley in Ronstadts backup band, saluted her with an induction speech. Ronstadt was saluted by some royalty of female country rock. Carrie Underwood sang Different Drum, Ronstadts rst hit with the Stone Poneys. Emmylou Harris and Bonnie Raitt joined for Blue Bayou. Sheryl Crow and Frey made it a quintet to sing Youre No Good. Then Stevie Nicks came out to lead them in Its So Easy and When Will I Be Loved.Nirvana, Kiss and the E Street Band join rock hall MCTBruce Springsteen, along with the E Street Band, were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Thursday.

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. The alarm blared. My husband, Ken, reached to shut it and we both turned over and fell back to sleep. An hour later, we suddenly awoke greatly aware we had overslept. With much to do, we leaped from bed trying to make up for lost time. Once weve lost that early morning edge, something usually has to give. We can bemoan the loss, or put it in its proper perspective and move on. And that is what I believe God would have us do. The triumphal entry into Jerusalem where Jesus is hailed as King with shouts of Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord! is over. A serious time of re ection follows during the Passover meal. Come back with me to the hours after that meal. As they made their way through the grape arbors, Jesus taught them about how a branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me, as we read in John 15: 4b, NKJV. Its sad how they missed their next opportunity to abide. Jesus asked the disciples to watch and pray with him in the Garden of Gethsemane as he went a little further from them to seek his heavenly Father in prayer. Imagine being asked by Jesus to be his prayer partner and being found asleep when he returns? Thats what happened more than once that night. Though disappointed in his followers, Jesus at last says Sleep on now, and take your rest (Matthew 26: 45, KJV). But shortly afterward, a new directive comes, Rise, let us be going. Its as if Jesus is saying that they cant do anything about what is past, but they can rise up and move forward. Isnt it the same with us? The past haunts us with disappointments, selfpity or blame. We attempt to carry a burden we cannot bear along with a debt we cant repay. By blaming others or Satan, we fail to take responsibility producing an endless cycle of despair. But, Jesus says to come and abide in Him and leave the past in his hands. And he is about to prove to the disciples and us that he can restore what seems lost. As Jesus is then arrested, mocked, beaten and cruci ed, the disciples are drowning in sorrow and regret. But, Sunday is about to dawn with new hope. They will know what it is to leave the irretrievable past at the cross.

Lawmakers are moving ahead with a proposal to name the Bible as Louisianas of cial state book, despite concerns the bill would land the Legislature in court. A House municipal committee advanced the bill Thursday with an 8-5 vote, sending it to the full House for debate. Rep. Thomas Carmody, R-Shreveport, said he sponsored the proposal after a constituent made the request. But Carmody insisted the bill wasnt designed to be a stateendorsement of Christianity or a speci c religion. Its not to the exclusion of anyone elses sacred literature, he told the House committee. Again, later he said, This is not about establishing an of cial religion of the state of Louisiana. Lawmakers who voted against the measure said it raises questions about whether Louisiana would be violating the separation of church and state. Rep. Wesley Bishop, DNew Orleans, said as a preachers son, he loved the concept. But he said as a lawyer, he thinks the bill has problems. He voted against the measure. I think were going to open ourselves up to a lawsuit. You cant adopt the Bible and not adopt Christianity, he said. Other lawmakers objected to Carmodys proposal to use a specific version of the Bible, so that language was stripped from the bill before it was passed. Rep. Barbara Norton, D-Shreveport, said she didnt feel quali ed to vote on anything thats related to the Bible, so she voted against it. Rep. Ebony Woodruff, D-Harvey, said adopting the Bible as the states ofcial book could be offensive to people who live in the state and who arent Christian. Youre OK with offending some of the citizens of this state? she asked. Its not meant to be offensive, Carmody replied. Theres no requirement that they would have to follow this particular text. Voting for the bill were Reps. Taylor Barras, RNew Iberia; Johnny Berthelot, R-Gonzales; Robert Billiot, D-Westwego; Terry Brown, I-Colfax; Mike Danahay, D-Sulphur; Dalton Honore, DBaton Rouge; Stephen Ortego, D-Carencro; and Tom Willmott, R-Kenner. Voting against the bill were Bishop, Norton, Woodruff and Reps. Jared Brossett, D-New Orleans, and Austin Badon, DNew Orleans, chairman of the committee.Bill would name the Bible as Louisiana state bookIts not to the exclusion of anyone elses sacred literature.

Long Mile Home, by Boston Globe reporters Scott Helman and Jenna Russell, is a surprisingly fantastic read. The basic outline is well-known: Two brothers are suspected in the April 15 bombings that killed three people, seriously injured hundreds and caused utter chaos. Its the lesser-known nuggets, and the interweaving of the characters stories, that make Long Mile Home a must-read. The book starts out with a beautiful history of the Boston Marathon and poignant description of its opening moments: a column of bobbing runners, thousands of them, surging downhill on a twisting two-lane road, a kinetic rainbow of tank tops, radiant T-shirts, race-day costumes, visors, headbands, and hats. Readers are introduced to the races longtime director, Dave McGillivray, whose short stature challenged his dreams of being an athlete until he found a refuge in running. As for the Tsarnaev brothers, the authors write that the older one, Tamerlan, heard voices in his head and erupted at fellow Muslims who celebrated secular holidays like Thanksgiving and honored non-Muslims like Martin Luther King Jr. The younger brother, Dzhokhar, was a former high school honor student who foundered in his studies at college and became a high-volume pot dealer, they say. The disintegration of their family and personal failures appeared to leave the brothers with few positive in uences, no direction, and little to lose, the authors write. The vivid descriptions of the explosions and the rsthand accounts of their aftermath are beyond chilling. The randomness of who survived and who didnt is captured by a moment in which Krystle Campbell allowed a fellow spectator to take a prime viewing spot because her friend was closer to the nish line. Campbell was killed by the explosivelled backpack dropped close to where she was standing. Also killed in the explosions were Boston University graduate student Lu Lingzi and 8-year-old Martin Richard, whose friends say told the best knock-knock jokes and stuck up for other kids. Stunningly, the death toll remained at three in great part because of the location of the bombing: near a medical tent and within 2 miles of six top hospitals, the authors write. The suspense and anxiety is palpable as investigators sift through surveillance video in search of the suspects.
