Nineteen volunteers gathered at Heartland Food Bank behind Lakeview Plaza on U.S. 27 and packed 500 takehome food bags of breakfast, lunch and dinner meals in less than 30 minutes. I tried to slow them down, said Kevin Butler, a weekly volunteer with the Food Bank, but they came over (from other tables) to help. Margie Blanda, Food Bank volunteer and organizer of the program, also accepted a $2,000 grant from the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Lodge 1529, which Past Exalted Ruler Ronna Mason had secured from the national organization for the Food Bank.

SEE FOOD | A6 BY BARRY FOSTERNews-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING The results of the 2013 Semi-Annual Crime Report have been released by The Florida Department of Law Enforcement. For Highlands County, the gures show a 20.9 percent increase in the total index of offenses moving from 2,737 in 2012 to 3,309 in 2013. Those numbers not only include numbers from the Highlands County Sheriffs Of ce, but also the municipalities as well as other agencies like the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton. She noted the statistics also re ected the rst year that the HCSO provided law enforcement for Avon Park. The FDLE report showed arrests were up by 7 percent in Highlands County during 2013 with increases in both violent crimes which were up 31.5 percent and non-violent crime which increased 19.6 percent.FDLE report shows crime rose 21 percent in county in 2013 BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING The only thing worse than taking a test could be being ready and not being able to take it. Highlands County middle and high school students had that problem this week. Though the problem was supposed to be xed Wednesday morning, the Highlands County School District lost Internet access that day, said Marcia Davis, coordinator of Student Services for the Highlands County School District. She called the Florida Department of Education, and was told to continue having students take their Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests and end-ofyear course exams, and then transmit the results later, Marcia said. Now Highlands County students are a day behind in their testing, but Davis isnt too worried. Testing has Internet issues for two days SEE SUSPECT | A7SEE CRIME | A7SEE TESTS | A7 A3

SFSC students Mason Belcher, Ashley Bennett, Gabe Clogston (design team leader), Antho ny Darby, Teya Edwards, H ope Flowers, Ashley Kinkade, Luis Mata, Jen nifer Napier, Erika Pascual, Holly Scherlacker, and J ared Turner creat ed the sculpture named Wildower Obelisk. Each of these students contributed a clay tile of a wildower that was made with white earth enware clay, red, and then glaz ed to create the coloring of their selected wildower. The sculpture was part of a group project where students were in charge of creating an interesting wall to display their clay tiles depicting wildower designs. Students collect ed materials for the project, gathering 28 wildower images, sketching out possible ideas and assembling the tiles to all four sides of the obelisk in a matter of a month. After completion of the drafted plan, the group was required to present a proposal to SFSCs ad ministration for approval so they could make their idea come to life. The group had some help from SFSCs Main tenance Department, which assembled the concrete that was at tached to a welded frame and embedded into a poured concrete founda tion. Wildower Obelisk can be viewed in the sculpture garden east of the SFSC Art Depart ment, outside the back potter y room door, and north of the graphics lab and MOFAC.SFSC students create Wildflower Obelisk Courtesy photoSFSC students Mason Belcher, Ashley Bennett, Gabe Clogston (design team leader), Anthony Darby, Teya Edwards, Hope Flowers, Ashley Kinkade, Luis Mata, Jennifer Napier, Erika Pascual, Holly Scherlacker, and Jared Turner created the sculpture named Wildower Obelisk.

A post on the restaurants Facebook page earlier this month said the news came as unexpectedly as we deliver it to you. However, after receiving numerous calls, ofcials of Fairmount Partners, who recently bought the shop ping complex on U.S. 27, hav e revealed the closing came as part of a protract ed rental dispute. I n fact, the landlord/ tenant matter was heard in the 10th Judicial Cir cuit Court on April 4 with the F airmount Partners in search of back rent. At the time, the complaint al leged that Yiannis Prime Choice was mor e than $62,000 in arrears. It fur ther alleged more than $5,600 was o wed in cur rent rent plus sales tax and other char ges. Court documents show that although owner John Emanolidia testied that he had paid the March rent, ofcials from Prime Choice failed to produce any cancelled checks as directed by the court. The order directed the restaurant to pay $56,813 into the Registry of the Court in and for Highlands County by April 9. On April 10, a nal judgement of eviction was issued by 10th Judicial Cir cuit Court Judge Peter Estrada after Prime Choice S teakhouse failed to com ply. The document then di rected the sheriff of Highlands County to place F airmount Partners in possession of the property. It was April 11 that Yian nis posted on their Facebook page, The owners and staff at Yiannis announce with a heavy heart, that we have closed our doors for business. The news came to us as unexpectedly as we deliv er it to you. We thank you for the last eight and a half years. You made it what it was. It was our pleasure and our honor to serve you. Representatives of the owners of the Fairmount Plaza said they wanted to clarify the timeline in re gard to the situation, inasmuch as there might have been some confusion as to the circumstances sur rounding the closing. M eanwhile, ofcials from RE/Max Realty Plus say they continue to look for a new restaurateur to take over the space.

Hami M. Asmar, 58, of Dingmans Ferry, Penn., was cited after his 2006 Peterbuilt hauling a box trailer shoved a 2011 Penske International cab and atbed, causing possible injuries to driver Thomas Richard Yelton, 59, of Zephyrhills, who was treated at Florida Hospital Heartland Division. Asmar said that Yelton had stopped suddenly at the red light, but Yelson said he had been waiting at the light when he was hit. The impact also blew out the back window of Yeltons truck and bent the rear bumper of the trailer while causing $10,000 in damage to the nose of Asmars cab, being examined here by a member of West Sebring Fire & Rescue.

But others arent so sure. Open-govern ment rules are seen as stumbling blocks to efcient action, and inquisitiv e mem bers of the public cast as annoying gad ies. Trust us, these ofcials say. We know what s best. These warring points of view play out in nearly every session of the Legislature. Last year, proponents of good govern ment scored signicant victories, push ing back against attempts to increase secr ecy in government and making sub stantial progress in reforming the states patchy ethics codes And when the states annual legislative session started in March, it looked like another good year for Floridas residents. But with just two weeks left in the ses sion, things arent looking so rosy. F irst, a straightforward bill that would further strengthen Floridas open-records rules has stalled out. The same fate has fallen SB 846, which would improve upon landmark cleangovernment legislation passed in 2013. The bill would extend ethics rules to qua si-governmental entities like Enterprise F lorida, putting better oversight on agen cies that spend billions of state tax dol lars. I t also would include city and county ofcials in ethics-training requirements spelled out for state-level ofcials in the 2013 reforms, and empowers the state Commission on Ethics to act against of cials who scoff at the states annual nan cial-disclosure requirements. B oth the ethics and the open-records bills are awaiting action in the House. And they have one more thing in com mon the House versions are sponsored b y Rep. Dave Hood, R-Ormond Beach. Hood, who has a long and laudable his tory in local government, should do his utmost to convince House leadership to pass the Senate bills.An editorial from the Daytona Beach News-Journal.Legislature not bolstering faith in governmentThere are still some Good SamaritansI would like to thank the many people who stopped to assist my 89-year-old mother and me Sunday (April 20) about 11:45 / a.m. My car stalled at the intersec tion of U.S. 27 and Flare Road. Even with ashers on my car it was only a matter of time until, I fear, we would have been hit. I believe two individuals turned around to assist and then one young man risked his life to cross 27 to offer to push my car off the road. Three other gentlemen also risked their lives to cross 27, then pushed my car off the road. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kindness and valor.MIC heHE LL eE B aA C KUS A n N D R R U th TH Dav DAV ISSebringChristians should avoid Sea WorldAs a Christian, I nd it deplor able that SeaWorld Orlando used Easter as a mar keting ploy, by holding an Easter Sunday church service at the marine mammal abusement park. The documentary Blacksh ex poses how SeaWorld tears orcas fr om their pods, connes them alone in tiny concrete tanks, rips babies away from their wailing mothers and ships them to oth er parks, denies orcas veterinary car e, and withholds food from or cas who dont perform the confusing tricks that the trainers de mand. I doubt that many of S eaWorlds executives have spent much time reading the Bible. If they had, they would note several verses in which God condemns cruelty to animals. Most theologians recognize that when God gave Adam domin ion over the animals in Genesis 1:26-28, the wor d is more accu rately translated as stewardship, meaning that humans are to watch o ver and respect the rest of Gods creation. We were created in Gods im age of love (1 John 4:8) and are called to sho w love to the world. God commends those who do so, saying, Blessed are the merci ful (Matthew 5:7). Jesus tells us in M atthew 25:40, As you did it to one of the least of these, my brethren, you did it to me. Christians should ee from Sea World as quickly as the animals would if the gates w ere opened.MIC heHE LL eE K K R etE T Z eE RDunedinEvery so often, someone in politics says something so preposterously hilarious that were at pains to pre vent our coffee from exiting our noses So it went on Sunday morning, when Democrat ic national chairwoman D ebbie Wasserman Schultz opined on Meet the Press about the Obama adminis trations decision to punt on the K eystone XL pipeline. The project, which would ship tar sands oil from Can ada to Texas reneries, has been in limbo for v e years. Team Obama decided in 2011 to postpone a decision until after the 2012 elec tions; last Friday, it decided to postpone a decision until after the 2014 elections. But when asked about the timing of those punts, Wasserman Schultz said: I want to make sure that the right decision is arrived at. And that the president makes that decision care fully, and he doesnt factor politics into his decision. Which I dont think he is. He doesnt factor politics into his decision... What a thankless job she has, sling ing bull with a straight face. Any one who thinks the timing of the latest punt is non-political must surely believe in unicorns. Obama is trying to stoke a robust midterm turnout from lib eral Democrats, and he kno ws theyre more likely to stay home if he said yes to an oil project that they hate. Karl Rove was right (yes, he was) when he said this weekend on Fox News, If course it was about politics. Its all about politics. Rove knows what hes talking about, because he similarly intertwined poli tics and policy when he was a G eorge W. Bush opera tive. Back in March 2002, the B ush team suddenly scrapped its free-trade prin ciples and slapped a 30 per cent tariff on foreign steel in or der to protect Ameri can steelworkers. The Bush team said with a str aight face that its decision was solely based on good eco nomics, but everyone knew what R ove, a key player in this episode, was really up to. He was doing political spadework for Bushs reelection bid, by wooing la bor voters in key steelworker states like Pennsylvania, W est Virginia, and Ohio. We can endlessly de bate the policy upsides and do wnsides of the Keystone pipeline its job-creat ing potential (or lack thereof), its energy potential, its envir onmental impact (27 million additional tons of carbon dioxide pumped an nually into the atmosphere, accor ding to the State De partment) and these tr ade-offs are undoubtedly weighing on the Obama ad ministration. M y focus is on the politi cal factors that continue to v ex the president. If Obama had decided to nix the pipe line prior to the midterms, he would ve pleased his lib eral base but he wouldve fur ther imperiled the redstate Democratic senators who are currently struggling to win re-election. S upport for the pipeline is particularly strong in those states, and Republicans wouldve ratcheted up their efforts to tie the incum bents to a liberal president who s perceived as hostile to oil. On the other hand, if Obama had decided to OK the pipeline prior to the midterms, his liberal base, and many of his biggest lib eral donors (most notably, billionaire Tom Stey er), wouldve gone ballistic. They view the K eystone de cision as a major test of Obama s willingness (or lack thereof) to combat glob al warming, so a Yes on the pipeline might w ell have closed the donors check books and turned potential liber al voters into midterm couch potatoes. By the way, the liber al base is out of the mainstream on Keystone. A ccording to an ABC NewsWashington Post poll last month, 65 percent of Amer icans including 65 per cent of independents want the pipeline Only 36 percent of self-identied liberal Democrats agree. We talk a lot here about how of ten the Republicans are beholden to their right-leaning base; on Keystone, its Obama beholden to his So, politically, it appears that his arguably best deci sion was to forego a decision (yet again). His punt leav es both Democratic fac tions somewhat dissatised, but, fr om the Obama teams perspective, it wouldve been worse to choose. Problem is, there will al ways be another election on the hor izon not sur prisingly, likely 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton has y et to take a position on Keystone so who knows when or whether this limbo will end....and whether any one still believes what JFK said 52 y ears ago in Phila delphia: Our responsibility is one of decision for to govern is to choose.Dick Polman is the national political columnist at NewsWorks/ WHYY in Philadelphia (ne wsworks. org/polman) and a Writer in Resi dence at the University of Philadelphia.

Scali s mother-in-law, Jackie, also battled cancer for several years, along with other serious ail ments. She had breast cancer, but she didnt receive any chemotherapy for hers. She also passed of old age last fall, Scali said. Although two deaths would be enough to break the spirit of almost any one, Scali and her family faced a third tragedy inv olving a close family friend. My good friend, Nora Meadows, passed in De cember. She also had br east cancer as well as a brain tumor. She had her breast removed ... and then chemotherapy. Un fortunately, after that they found a tumor in her brain that was inoperable. They tried radiation with her, it just did not work, Scali said. Scali led a team of walk ers in her hometown of F rostproof since 2004 and served as chairman of the Frostproof Relay for two years. I enjoy doing these, particularly how they do them here where each city has its own Relay. Ev eryone has their opportunity to make a difference in their community and sort of show off what all they can do for the Amer ican Cancer Society. It makes for good competi tion, said Scali. Scali s small team of seven members is a rsttime entry into the Avon Park Relay. The fami ly relocated to Highlands C ounty from Frostproof recently.

Anonymity is guar anteed. SUSPECT FROM PAGE A A 1There also was a bump in murders locally which went from three to four cases last year. Two of those were ours and two were in the city of Sebring, Benton noted. The report showed ag gravated assaults increased from 151 to 258 incidents larceny cases increased from 1,527 to 1,960 cases and motor ve hicle thefts went up from 105 to 139. Ther e were decreas es in the index for Highlands County as well. Sex offenses dr opped by 23.9 percent and robbery inci dents went down from 65 to 52 cases a 20 percent decrease. The report also indicat ed there had been near ly $5.3 million in property v alue taken with an esti mated $1.6 million recovered. The biggest single categor y there was motor vehicles. Of the $1.9 mil lion worth of cars stolen, a little o ver $1 million worth was recovered. We are still reviewing all of these numbers and the denitions by category to see what they really mean, Benton said. Statewide, Floridas crime rate dropped 4.7 percent in 2013 compared to 2012, putting Florida at a 43-year crime low. The total number of crimes across the Sun shine State reportedly fell 3.8 per cent from 2012 numbers, which translates into 27,380 fewer crimes in 2013. The number of violent crimes also was down 2.4 percent. Murder was down 3.9 percent state wide, with forcible sex offenses and robbery each declining b y 2.8 percent. Aggravated assault was down 2.1 percent. There were 15 fewer vic tims of domestic violence in 2013 statewide with co habitants being the largest group of victims in this categor y. Spouses re mained as the second lar gest group. The complete 2013 An nual Uniform Crime Report, including countyb y-county breakdowns, can be found on FDLEs website at www.fdle.state. .us/fsac/ucr/. CRIME FROM PAGE A A 1They had an eight-day window, starting Tues day, to nish end-of-year testing for the distr ict, which includes FCAT, end-of-year exams and tests for both advanced placement and Inter national Baccalaureate classes The full shut-down Wednesday was the scar iest thing weve dealt with, Davis said Thurs day. Because everything is r unning smoothly (now), Im hoping its re solved. P roblems started Tues day when a computer glitch canceled testing that day for several school distr icts through out Florida, including H ighlands. Davis rst learned of that issue at 8 / a.m. Tues day when the districts car eer academy at South Florida State College at tempted to start testing and ran into problems. At 8:15 / a.m., her ofce got a phone call from Commissioner of Education Pam Stew art acknowledging the pr oblem and promising updates on the situation throughout the day. We never got on, Da vis said. Some districts w ere stopped mid-test. Some couldnt submit (tests). Davis also didnt hear back that day. A confer ence call between Stewart and Florida school super intendents re vealed that the problem was not test provider Pearson Educations w ebsite, but was Centu ryLink, the Internet ser vice provider under contract with Pearson. D avis told the High lands County School B oard at Tuesdays reg ular meeting that Pear son was planning to hire another pr ovider, test the system overnight and decide Wednesday morning whether or not to move forward. Da vis was concerned local testing could still be at r isk because Century Link is the districts local pr ovider. A message Davis re ceived from Stewart ear ly Wednesday morning said the D epartment of Education had worked with Pearson through the night, and Pearson had put in safeguards, such as backup access lines to its production servers. The message also stat ed that Pearson had xed the or iginal com patability issue that interr upted service through CenturyLink, but had also hired an other service provider to minimiz e the risk of fur ther interruptions. The new connections w ere tested and veried over night, the message said. D avis said elementa ry school tests were not affected, because they were in the midst on on-paper exams. Their computer-based test ing wont begin in those schools until next w eek, she said.

A8 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, April 25, 2014 www.newssun.com Last week I covered a few of the myths regarding bass shing and in this column Ill review a few more. Myth 6: Trophy bass are old sh. Fact: False. Most double-digit bass, at least from southern waters where 10-plus pound bass are not uncommon, are fast growing and relatively young. A study in Florida found that a high per centage of angler-caught bass over 10 pounds were only 7 to 10 years old. Myth 7: Bigger lures always catch bigger bass. Fact: False. The key word here is always. Little lures catch big bass and big lures catch little bass. In feeding studies where bass were offered a range of forage sh sizes from small up to the maximum size they could eat, the bass always selected forage sh near the center of the size range. How big a forage sh can a bass eat? Largemouth can easily swallow a forage sh up to one-third its length. I have seen photographs of one 15-16 bass with a smaller 1314 bass stuck in his jaws. Bass will eat almost anything that moves in the water and appears to be food. Myth 8: The bass bite better when the water is moving; the ow brings forage to them. Fact: Kind of True. Flow can turn on the bite in tidal waters and hydropower reservoirs with periodic current. But loads of bass are caught in lakes and ponds where they never see owing water. Bass get active when the for age gets active. A great example of this is when they open the locks on the Kissimmee River. Bass seemingly go crazy as the water rushes out and bait sh seem to be everywhere. Myth 9: Female bass help the male guard the eggs; thats why you often see two bass on a nest and can irritate the female into attacking your offering. Fact: False. You will nd a female bass at a nest before she spawns. Every biological study of bass spawning has found that the male guards the eggs and the female spawns and leaves. It is well established that female bass often spawn in multiple nests, depositing only a por tion of her eggs in each nest. Soon afterward, the female moves out into deeper water to rest and recuperate while the male stays on the nest, protecting it from marauding predators. Myth 10: The big bass always spawn rst. Fact: True. This generalization is true, but several of the reasons Ive heard that attempt to explain why are pretty hokey. Just accept it and expect the size of the bass you see on beds to get smaller as the spawning season wanes. I repeat, this is a generalization. Myth 11: The male bumps the female to loosen the eggs. Fact: False. The bass courtship and spawning ritual can get a little animated, but the male bumping SPORTsS FISHIN AROUNDDon NortonBass Fishing MythsSEE BASS | A10 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK One Highlands County team kept their baseball season alive Tuesday night, albeit at the expense of another, as the Red Devils moved to the District 9-4A title game with a 6-0 win over Lake Placid. We just couldnt get it going when we needed to, Dragon head coach D.W. Daum would say afterward. The pitching of freshman Daniel Simons had a little something to do with that. The young right hander went the whole way, scattering ve hits, walking one and striking out six to pick up his 11th win of the season without a loss. And Kyle Kelley sparked the Avon Park (19-4) offense with three hits and three RBI. Lake Placid posed a minor threat in the rst when Tyler Carr walked and Laine Daum singled with two out. But Simons got a grounder to shortstop Trey Frazier to get out of it. The Devils then got all the runs they would need in the bottom of the frame. Alfred Brown reached on an error to start it, with Luis Martinez then reaching on an ineld single before Tyrone Perry smashed a single to right to bring Brown in. Lake Placid starter Jacob Cram struck out the next two batters, but Kelley lined a single to center to score both Martinez and Perry and stake Avon Park to a 3-0 lead. Cram tried to help his own cause with a single to lead off the second, and moved to second on a Justin Mason sacrice bunt. But Simons worked out of it with consecutive ground outs and got through the next three innings with only one Dragon batter reaching base. The Devils added some insurance runs in the bottom of the fth. With one out, Perry and Mykel Gordon drew walks and when Mason Jahnas grounder was thrown away, two runs came in and put Jahna in scoring position. He would soon come home when Kelley sent another single to center to make it a 6-0 game. Simons then worked out of a sixth inning jam, which included a Daum double and Justin LaRosa single, and worked a onetwo-three seventh to secure the win. Heading in to the game we were pretty condent and knew we had to get the job done to stay alive, Kelley said. And we are reaching a goal of putting another number up on the board. That other number would be a district championship, which will take a win over McKeel (11-15) tonight at Head Field. The Wildcats edged past Mulberry by a 5-4 score in Tuesdays early seminal game, to set up the rubber match with Avon Park. McKeel gave the Devils their lone district loss of the season with a sixrun, seventh-inning rally at home on March 4, with Avon Park getting a little bit of atonement in a rematch a month later with a 9-2 win. They have a good team and they are well coached, Red Devil head coach Whit Cornell said. But I think we match up well with them.Kelley, Simons key Red Devil win Dan Hoehne/News-SunWith an anxious Luis Martinez on third, Kyle Kelley smashed this two-run, rst-inning single to set the tone in Avon Parks 6-0 win over Lake Placid Tuesday. Dan Hoehne/News-SunDaniel Simons had another stellar outing Tuesday, pitching a completegame shutout to move the Devils to tonights District 9-4A title game. BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe stage was a little bigger Wednesday, and the competition a whole lot stronger in the Region 3-3A Track and Field meet at Lake Minneola. But after the day long event of extreme efforts, three Blue Streaks stamped their ticket to next weekends FHSAA State Finals. Jordyn Blount, Gary Demarest and Byron Cobb all placed in the top four of their respective events to qualify for the penultimate track event of the year. Blount, who was competing in three events at regionals nearly advanced in two of them. He just missed qualifying in the high jump, placing fth, and the 4X100 relay team was just three slots, and mere seconds, from moving on. But Blount more than made up for it by going for gold in the long jump. The junior Blue Streak has won the event in every one of Sebrings meets this season and kept up the winning streak by soaring a distance of 22feet, 11 1/2-inches. With the leap, Blount also set a new Sebring High School record. Demarest also just missed on moving on in two events. He took fth in the shot put, but tossed the discus 149-feet, 6-inches to take second and make a return trip to state in the event. Byron Cobb completed the trio of Streaks heading to state, as he took third in the pole vault, clearing 12-feet, 6-inches. These qualifying efforts, along with the near misses and other topeight placements tallied up points for the Sebring boys to nish fth as a team in the 26-team eld. I couldnt be more proud of the effort given by our athletes, head coach Cynthia Cook said. We took 20 athletes to regionals and got a lot of experience. For Blount, Demar est and Cobb, the season continues Saturday, May 3, with the Class 3A Finals at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, beginning at 9 / a.m. Blue Streaks sending three to State Dan Hoehne/News-Sun lesJordyn Blount set a new Blue Streak record in the long jump, winning the event at the Region 3-3A meet and moves on to the state nals next weekend. Special to the News-SunENGLEWOOD Vy ing to reach the District 11-5A Tournament title game, the Sebring baseball squad saw its season end with an 11-6 loss to host Lemon Bay Tuesday. The predominantly young Streaks, battle tested through an intentionally brutal regular season schedule, came out strong, plating two runs in the top of the rst. But the Manta Rays answered right back with two of their own and exploded for four in the second to take a 6-2 lead. Sebring added two in the fourth, with Cullen Lovett belting an RBI single to shave it to 6-4, but Lemon Bay put up another four-run inning in the fth to again pull Lemon Bay ends Streaks seasonSEE SEBRING | A10 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun les Cullen Lovett had a single, triple and RBI in his nal game for the Blue Streaks.

First place went to the team of Gerry Esty, Will David, Jay Payne and Ed Grifth who scored a 9-under par 63 strokes. Their nine birdies included a stretch of ve birdies on holes 4 thru 8.

These Streaks, however, were not going to go down quietly and they scored two more in the top of the sixth. Lovett and Matt Portis pulled a rare feat of hitting back-to-back triples, with Seth Cannady then singling for the second run. But that would be all they could muster, with the Rays adding a run in the bottom of the frame to provide for the nal mar gin. For rst-year head coach, Jasone DeWitt, the season didnt end the way he had envisioned it. But the shaping of the program provided some strong lessons learned from which to move ahead next season. Im proud of the guys for the dedication they put in this year, all the hard work, he said. This is a great group and well come back stronger next year. That determination is evident among the play ers as well. Its not what we expected from the season, sophomore third-baseman David DeGenaro said. But we learned a lot this year and I think that will just re us up and make us more ready for next year. SEBRING FROM PAGE A8

LIVING BFriday, April 25, 2014 Outdoor-Friendly MaterialsHave you ever wondered how some products are suitable for the outdoors while others can only be kept inside? Various processes and materials give outdoor furniture and decor durability and weather-resistant appeal. SYNTHETIC FIBERSEver think about all the abuse from the elements outdoor pillows, seat cushions and umbrellas suffer? Between the sun, rain and everything in-between, fabrics made for outdoor use are designed to withstand the elements, keeping your newly designed patio fresh for all the parties to come. Synthetic bers used in these fabrics are designed to bead water, resist stains and maintain their color. With this in mind, you can lengthen the lifespan of such materials by covering them when not in use and avoiding prolonged exposure to rain or sun. ACRYLICS AND MELAMINEOutdoor drinkware and dinnerware made of acrylic and melamine provide much of the same great style as their glass counterparts with out the breakability. A nice set of acrylic drinkware and melamine dinnerware, such as Summer Quench Turquoise Goblets and Trellis Dinnerware, both from Pier 1 Imports, will keep your outdoor soiree safe and fun throughout the evening.SYNTHETIC RATTAN AND WICKERWicker may be the traditional material for outdoor furniture, but this new generation of synthetic wickers and rattans is not your grandmothers porch furniture. All-weather chairs, tables and more are woven of synthetic rattan or wicker over durable, rust-resistant frames, making them durable and easy to clean. This approach offers the exibility to incorporate a woven look into furniture of all styles from traditional to global, modern to whimsical without sacri cing durability and longevity. Family Features The arrival of summer, along with its sunny skies and beautiful weather, beckons homeowners to create a space to entertain guests and enjoy the great outdoors. Design an outdoor living room that merges style and function, and incorporates elements of indoor comfort. Whether entertaining for two or 10, the warmer weather provides an abundance of opportunities to lounge in peaceful, open-air surroundings. New offerings in decor and design breathe indoor inspiration into your outdoor spaces, creating a beautiful extension of your home for all to enjoy. Its easier than ever to bring the comfort and style of your favorite indoor spaces into your porch, patio and other outdoor areas, said Aimee Beatty, in-house stylist with Pier 1 Imports. From comfy throw pillows to trendy rugs, colorful artwork and cheery curtains, new outdoor products boast durability and so much style that your patio will be the neighborhoods go-to summer hot spot. Beatty shares some of her stylish secrets to make your outdoor space an elegant living space worth sharing.Arrange awayTreat your outdoor area as you would your living room. If space is limited, use sectionals to create seating in whatever arrangement ts best. If there is more room, add an investment piece, such as the Echo Beach Dining Table from Pier 1 Imports. This high-quality piece is made from handcrafted, all-weather synthetic rattan and offers plenty of space to arrange chairs just as you would in your dining room. Finish the look by layering your favorite accessories, such as handcrafted trays, detailed lanterns and a colorful oral arrangement to create a cheerful centerpiece that makes your guests feel welcome.Tie it all togetherTo let you in on a little secret outdoor rugs tie everything together and really bring a space to life. Simply layer a rug, such as Pier 1 Imports chic Wavy Geo Rug, with a beautiful seating collection, colorful cushions and pillows, and youve got an outdoor area that makes everyone comfortable and happy.Embrace the boldSome might be afraid to create a statement outside because its outside. But an outdoor living space lends itself to adventures with color and pattern, providing the opportunity to be bold and to go beyond your comfort zone. When shopping for the outdoors, remember anything goes.Make it uniquely yoursMix and match with color and patterns, and personalize your space with accents such as outdoor artwork, planters, umbrellas and more. A smart combination of accessories really transforms an outdoor space from simple to fabulous. Be bright, all nightThe sun may still be shining when the guests arrive, but youll need something to light up the night and keep the party going all evening long. Create a delightful, welcoming atmosphere with a variety of outdoor lighting options, such as string lights, paper lanterns or oating LED candles placed around the patio. Fashion an elegant glow with lanterns in various sizes, such as the Scroll Trim Lanterns from Pier 1 Imports.Serve in styleAl fresco entertaining always focuses on food, drinks and friends. A self-service food station or bar enhances the casual tone, freeing guests to grab refreshments whenever they please. This also allows you, the host, to focus on the fun at hand. Look for serving and drink carts that maximize space, such as the Rania Serving Cart from Pier 1 Imports, which has three levels so theres plenty of room to stash an ice bucket, drink dispenser, snacks, lawn games and more. So let the warmth of the season bring many memorable moments to your life and stylish elements into your outdoor spaces. For more great decorating ideas, visit www.pier1.com.

B2 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, April 25, 2014 www.newssun.com PUZZLE CORNER Solution on B6 J OCELOCEL Y N N NO NO V EC EC KAP National WriterThere are plenty of minimalist lms out there. And then theres the tiny sub-genre of the truly, ultra-min imalist lms: One character. In one place Think Buried, in which Ryan Reynolds spent 94 minutes stuck in a cofn, with a waning cellphone. Or All is Lost, in which Robert Redford spent 106 minutes adrift on a strick en sailboat, with waning options. And no w theres Locke, in which Tom Hardy spends 85 minutes in his car, just driving south on a British motorway, toward London. His life isnt in danger well, not in the liter al sense. And the Bluetooth is working just ne. The only thing waning is quite simply, his carefully con structed existence. In the course of one car r ide, its all falling apart. It sounds almost trite to say that a lm like this lives or dies on its cen tral performance (other actors appear here, but only by telephone.) T rite, but true. And luckily, Hardy is compelling enough here to drive forgive the pun the action. Thats not to say Locke will work for everyone. Hardys performance as an upstanding, tightly controlled family man trying to right a terri ble mistake is admirably restrained, in a situation when o veracting must have been a constant temptation. But its precisely this strength of the lm, written and directed by Ste ven Knight, that makes it heavy lifting for the viewer. It demands a lot of patience especially when it r e ally sinks in that this car, and Hardys face will be everything you see. And it demands a willingness to absorb countless details on the fascinating subject of concrete pouring. Yes, concrete pouring. Did you know the difference between C6 con crete and C5? By the end of this lm, y ou will. Ivan Locke (Hardy), you see, is a construction foreman, and early the next morning, hes due to supervise a huge project the concrete pour at the site of a new skyscraper. This is, in fact, the largest concrete pour to happen in Europe, outside of mili tary or nuclear sites, as we keep being reminded in phone calls of escalating desperation with Lockes boss and an underling. Why ar e these calls desperate? Be cause on the eve of the biggest day of his car eer, Locke has left it all and started driving to London. Nine months earlier, on a business trip, he wound up with a bottle of wine and a lonely woman. Now, she is giving birth, all alone, and though he barely knows her, he feels he has no choice but to join her. Im going to do the right thing, he says, in a line that becomes a mantra. The dialogue takes place almost entirely in phone calls, and the most effective of these are between Locke and his wife (an excellent Ruth Wil son), who gets the shocking news as she s preparing a family evening watching football on the telly. Hi love. I got sausages, she tells Locke happily when he rst calls. Soon, shes vomiting in the bath room. Locke insists this is the only time he s ever transgressed in all their years together. The difference be tween never and once is the differ ence between good and bad, she tells him. The dialogue here feels raw and real. By contrast, things get unnecessar ily maudlin when Locke starts speaking aloud to his dead father. Its as if Knight, who s penned an otherwise excellent screenplay, lost his nerve and felt compelled to add another layer of drama. Locke, an A24 Films release, is rated R for language throughout. Running time: 85 minutes. Three stars out of four.Hardy drives taut, compelling LL o cke, in every possible way The Associated PressThis image released by A24 Films shows Tom Hardy in Locke.DEAR ABBY: I am a woman in a loving re lationship with another woman. My family has been harsh in their r e marks to me, saying they would r ather I was dead than doing this, or that I should move away if this is the way I am going to live. I have been married twice. Neither marriage worked out. During my childhood, I was molested by a family member. Since then, I have been scared of men and dont want to be around them. I have had crushes on women in the past, but didnt tell my family because Im a 30-year-old adult and I felt it was none of their busi ness. I keep asking myself if my attraction to my lov er was a choice, but I dont r emember choosing this. All I remember is fall ing for her and not wanting to look back. Should I end this r elationship and live alone forever? I nev er want to be with another man as long as I liv e. ACHING IN AMARILLODEAR ACHING: Be cause your family is so unaccepting of your sexual orientation, it would be inter esting to know how they view your molester. Did you tell anyone what happened, and did you re ceive counseling about it? I f the answer is you didnt, then PLEASE consider getting some now to help you deal with any residu al issues because you appear to have a few like y our fear of and aversion to all men.

Unfortunately, Im TOO mature. What I want most in the world is sex appeal. I long for the per fect sex-crazed boyfriend. What can I do about this craving? BEYOND MY YEARS IN KENTUCKYDEAR BEYOND: The rst thing you should do about this craving is learn all you can about birth control and self-con trol, because the per fect sex-crazed boyfriend could get y ou and him self into a world of tr ouble. At 13, you should be focused on sports and getting into and out of high school with a diplo ma. Whoev er told you you are mature for your age must have meant physi cally, because when a girls N o. 1 desire in the world is sex appeal and a sexcrazed boyfriend, it is not a sign of EMOTIONAL maturity.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil lips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

www.newssun.comFriday, April 25, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | B3 HEALTh H Y L LIVING Metro News ServiceRegular exercise can benet the body in many ways, helping men and women maintain healthi er weights and lower their r isks for developing po tentially deadly diseases. Though many people ar e quick to associate exercise with its physical benets, those hours spent on the treadmill also can boost brain power. According to Dr. Bar ry Gordon, professor of neur ology and cogni tive science at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions and coauthor of Intelli gent Memory: Improve the M emory That Makes You Smarter, exercise has a direct impact on the brain. Thats because ex ercise works directly on br ain tissue, improving the connections between nerve cells, creating new synapses, growing new neurons and blood ves sels, and improving cell ener gy efciency. So while many people may begin an exercise reg imen with a goal of trimming their waistlines or toning their bodies they might be happy to know that those physical ben ets are accompanied by sev eral cognitive benets as well. As the American Psy chological Association acknowledges, the connection between exercise and mental health is har d to ignore, and the APA notes that the following are just a few of the mental ben ets men and women might r eap from regular exercise. Improved mood Many people feel great after exercising, especial ly if that exercise comes at the end of a par ticular ly stressful day. However, those extra laps on the tr ack or those hours spent on the treadmill dont just pay short-term dividends. In a controlled trial overseen by Duke Univer sity researcher and clinical psy chologist James Blu menthal, sedentary adults with major depr essive dis order were assigned into one of four gr oups: su pervised exercise, homebased exer cise, antide pressant therapy, or a placebo pill. Those in the exer cise and antidepressant gr oups had higher rates of remission than those in the placebo group, and Blumenthal concluded that exercise was generally comparable to antidepres sants for men and women with major depr essive dis order. I n addition, in follow ing up with patients a year later Blumenthal found that those who continued to exercise had lower de pression scores than those par ticipants who were less active.Studies show exercise benefits the brain, too MetroStudies show that exercise works directly on brain tissue, improving the connections between nerve cells, creating new synapses, growing new neurons and blood vessels, and improving cell energy efciency.Dear Pharmacist: I started bioidentical hor mones thanks to you, and feel dr amatically better. I cant convince my sister who still takes a prescription estrogen drug from horse urine. What can I tell her since she wont switch medi cines? T .W., Decatur, Ill. Answer: Forget the horse urine if you can, the bigger problem with estrogen is their byproducts. Most doctors agree, the human body preferentially breaks down estrogen hormone into cancer-promoting by-products (termed me tabolites) instead of anticancer metabolites. This is more apt to happen if you tax your liver with a poor diet, household chemicals and other tox ins. Your liver is always on o verdrive and it has to break down the estro gen that you take, eat or make When I say take, I mean take as medi cine; when I say eat, I mean eat fr om com mercial meats or drink fr om plastic water bot tles with BPA; and when I say make, I mean the estrogen hormone that men and women natu rally produce. As women, w e make estrogen for years (or take it or eat it). Men with prostate problem can benet from what Im about to say too. The goal for all of us is to cre ate more of the safer estrogen by-products, and less of the har mful byproducts. Heres how to do that: %  M ethionine This dietary supplement supports pancreatic health, so I often rec ommend it for people who drink alcohol. M ethionine provides sulfur (not to be con fused with sulfa drugs) so it acts as a cellular cleanser. We call me thionine a methyl donor because it literally donates methyl gr oups for a biochemical reac tion in your body that r ids you of poisons and harmful estrogen byproducts. Foods that donate methyl groups are good for you like beets, broccoli, leafy greens and sunower seeds. %  M ethylcobalamin This over-the-counter form of vitamin B12 r educes nerve pain and helps spark en ergy. It provides that methyl group I men tioned above that clears poisons fr om your body. Its this spe cic methylcobalamin form of B12 that helps y ou, so read la bels before purchasing. If you take a drug mugger of B12, y ou may need more than the dosage recom mended on the label, but ask y our doctor if thats okay. Antacids, some diabetes medi cations, certain cholesterol binding medicines and alcohol wipe out y our stash. %  C alcium D-Glucarate This supplement is not the same as plain calcium. Toxins and carcinogens have to combine with watersoluble substances to leave your body so this one combines with es trogen to help it get out. F olks with cancer often have high lev els of a bad enzyme, Bglucur onidase, and low levels of a protective substance called Dglucaric acid. This is yet another benet to taking calcium D-glu carate supplements. %  I odine Deciency of this protective mineral is common in women with brocystic breast pain and breast can cer. Iodine is essential for you to produce thyr oxine thyroid hor mone plus, iodine has br oad antifungal and antimicrobial benets. It helps you make safer forms of estrogen.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24Hour Pharmacist and Real Solu tions. For more information, visit www suzycohen. com.

It reads: U.S. S hip: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a colli sion. C anadians: Recom mend you divert your course 15 degr ees to the south to avoid a collision. U.S. Ship: This is the captain of a United States naval vessel. I say again, divert your course. Canadians: No. I say again, you divert your course! U.S. Ship: This is the aircraft carrier USS Coral Sea. We are a large warship of the United States Navy. Divert your course now!! Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call. I think about the cap tain of the ship who was about to collide with a lighthouse all because he would not heed the warn ing being sent to him. He thought that since he pi loted the bigger, more po werful vessel, he had the right of way. That, my friends, is what we call good, old-fashioned stub bornness. S tubbornness is a dan gerous quality to possess, because it many times causes us to believe that we can never be wrong. And, when faced with the fact that we are sometimes wrong, we fail to repent of that wrong. In fact, we will often defend our error to the bitter end. Stubbornness absolute ly has no place in our spir itual lives. Paul wrote to a gr oup of Christians in the rst century who had this very problem. Romans 2:5-8 reads, But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who will render to each person accord ing to his deeds: to those who b y perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortali ty, eternal life; but to those who ar e selshly ambi tious and do not obey the tr uth, but obey unrigh teousness, wrath and indignation. Do not let stubbor nness get in the way of your re lationship with God. Remember, that He might just kno w more about some things than you ever will. So, listen more to Him and less to yourself. You will be eternally glad that you did!Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ, 3800 Sebring Park way. On the Internet visit www. sebringcoc.com, or e-mail se bringparkway@sebringcoc.com.Would you be too stubborn to divert your course? K evinEVIN sS K ommentsOMME NTS Kevin Patterson For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of your selves, it is the gift of God; not as a r esult of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workman ship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which G od prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them (Ephesians 2:810). Tragically, this beauti ful Truth has been abused and misr epresented by theologians for centuries. As any Biblical subject, grace must be understood in view of Jehovah Gods eternal plan for mankinds redemption consider ing Deitys part as well as the individual person s in volvement in salvation. W ilsons Old Testament Word Studies identies grace (chen) as: de notes a free and spontaneous willingness to bestow good on him that is destitute of it, either in a way of kindness, or in a way of compassion; hence to show favour, mercy, pity, as the act of previous goodwill. The word ex cludes all idea of merit or deser t in the object of free favour. The will and the act are closely conjoined in this word as it is used of God, and the force and emphasis are transferred to the New Testament in the words of Ephesians 1:6 and Luke 1:28. Vines Complete Expository Dic tionary denes grace ( charis) as having vari ous uses: objective, that which besto ws or occa sions pleasure, delight, or causes fav orable regard, the spiritual state of those who have experienced its exercise; subjective, on the part of the bestower, the friendly disposition from which the kindly acts pro ceed; on the part of the receiver, a sense of the favor besto wed, feeling of grati tude. As a testimony to its v ar ious uses, grace/favor is used some 150 times in the New Testament. An ex cellent summary of this is seen in P auls statement regard grace in his life: For I am the least of the apostles, who am not wor thy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me (1 Corinthi ans 15:9,10). P erhaps a good starting place to study this most profound subject would be a familiar event in his tory, Noah and the ark/ ood. But Noah found grace (favor NAS, RSV, NIV) in the eyes of the Lord (Genesis 6:8 NKJV). What constituted Jeho vahs grace/favor to Noah? W arning of the coming de struction/ood and how to escape it. H e was giv en instructions to build the ar k/boat and Thus Noah did; according to all that God command ed him, so he did (Genesis 6:22; 7:5). Hebrews 11:7 giv es us this additional in formation, By faith Noah, being divinely war ned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righ teousness which is according to faith. Q uestion What saved Noah: Gods grace, No ahs faith, Noahs obedience? Some would quickly answer: Gods grace only! and others Noahs faith only! But rethink the answers in the con text of the matter. As previously stated, Gods grace to N oah was information about the pending ood and instruction on how to build the ark of safety. Now he had to make a de cision: ignore the warning and pay the consequences or by faith heed the warn ing and follow the instructions and, of course, we kno w what he did. Noah did not earn or merit the favor of God (see deni tions above) but rather activated the gift of grace by an obedient faith. As w e shall see in future studies of grace, the gift of Jesus, the Christ (Romans 6:23) is received in the same way obedient faith. We do not refer back to the history of the ood to learn how to build a boat but, rather to learn about saving faith as one of the many such examples. Now all these things hap pened to them as examples, and they were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come (1 Corinthians 10:11). He brews 11 is lled with such lessons that will demand our attention and study.Frank Parker can be contacted at frankparker27@gmail. com.

His beatication, an explo sion of pride and jubilation. But days befor e John Paul II is to be declared a saint, many of his countrymen are greeting the landmark with little more than a shrug. One reason is that John Paul has al ready long been a saint in Polish hearts so making it ofcial with Vatican pageantry is just a bit of icing on the cake. But its also clear that less than a decade since his death, the enthusi asm that Poles accord their great countryman seems to be dissipating, just as memor ies of him fade and a new gen eration comes of age in this young EU countr y that is moving toward a more secular outlook. Only a few hundred people turned out in Warsaws main square for prayers before the popes relics on April 2, the ninth anniversary of his death. And there is little talk in Polish media of the April 27 saint-making ceremony at the Vatican. It all contrasts sharply with the pontiffs 2011 beatication, which was preceded by months of media frenzy and church preparations across Poland. Who needs this canonization? said Andrzej Grendys, stressing that he is Catholic but does not go to church. We all know that he was a very good and decent man with a great heart and mind. That is most important and needs no ofcial conrmation. And many say the country has al ready completed its emotional reckoning with John Pauls life and death. We have discharged our emotions in spontaneous outpourings at John Pauls beatication and death, said Ar tur Sporniak of the Tygodnik Powszechny Catholic weekly.No JP IIII fever in Poland as canonization nears The Associated Press/In this April 2 le photo an unusually empty main square with a commemorative cross in downtown Warsaw, Poland during observances marking nine years since the death of much-loved Polish-born Pope John Paul II.

B6 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, April 25, 2014 www.newssun.com PHUONG LEAssociated PressSEATTLE The Boy Scouts of America has re voked its charter agreement with a Seattle chur ch that refused to re move a gay troop leader after the organization withdr ew his member ship. A B oy Scouts attorney told Rainier Beach Unit ed Methodist Church last w eek that it no longer could host troops under the Boy Scouts name. The church has stood by Geoff McGrath, 49, a Seattle software engineer and Eagle Scout, after his membership in the orga nization was revoked last month, setting off an im passe between the church and one of the countr ys most popular youth orga nizations. The B oy Scouts of America told McGrath in a March letter that it no choice but to revoke his registration after he said he was gay while being proled by NBC News. Boy Scouts of America ofcials said McGrath vi olated the groups leader ship qualications. They also said he deliberate ly injected his sexuality into the scouting pr ogram when he made state ments to the media and the or ganization about his sexual orientation. As a Reconciling Con gregation, its important to us that w e are open to all people, said the Rev. Monica Corsaro of Rainier Beach United Methodist. The church supports Mc Grath because his work r eects its spirit and val ues. M cGrath has been lead ing Seattle Troop 98 since its for mation last fall. The church also spon sors a Cub Scout Pack for y ounger boys. The church has ob tained legal counsel to ev aluate its options, Cor saro said. The B oy Scouts began accepting gay youth for the rst time this year but has continued to exclude openly gay adults from leadership positions. McGrath said Monday he will continue to par ticipate in the churchs y outh program even if it cant use the Boy Scouts name. Just because the BSA doesnt want to be in volved with this church and these kids we will still have a robust youth program for our kids, McGrath told The Associ ated Press in a telephone inter view. Its one of the best things I do. One of the things that really makes my week is spending time with these kids.

For Highlands County, the gures show a 20.9 percent increase in the total index of offenses moving from 2,737 in 2012 to 3,309 in 2013. Those numbers not only include numbers from the Highlands County Sheriffs Of ce, but also the municipalities as well as other agencies like the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, said Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton. She noted the statistics also re ected the rst year that the HCSO provided law enforcement for Avon Park. The FDLE report showed arrests were up by 7 percent in Highlands County during 2013 with increases in both violent crimes which were up 31.5 percent and non-violent crime which increased 19.6 percent.FDLE report shows crime rose 21 percent in county in 2013 BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING The only thing worse than taking a test could be being ready and not being able to take it. Highlands County middle and high school students had that problem this week. Though the problem was supposed to be xed Wednesday morning, the Highlands County School District lost Internet access that day, said Marcia Davis, coordinator of Student Services for the Highlands County School District. She called the Florida Department of Education, and was told to continue having students take their Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests and end-ofyear course exams, and then transmit the results later, Marcia said. Now Highlands County students are a day behind in their testing, but Davis isnt too worried. Testing has Internet issues for two days SEE SUSPECT | A7SEE CRIME | A7SEE TESTS | A7 A3

SFSC students Mason Belcher, Ashley Bennett, Gabe Clogston (design team leader), Antho-ny Darby, Teya Edwards, Hope Flowers, Ashley Kinkade, Luis Mata, Jen-nifer Napier, Erika Pas-cual, Holly Scherlacker, and Jared Turner creat-ed the sculpture named Wildower Obelisk. Each of these students contributed a clay tile of a wildower that was made with white earth-enware clay, red, and then glazed to create the coloring of their selected wildower. The sculpture was part of a group project where students were in charge of creating an interesting wall to display their clay tiles depicting wildower designs. Students collect-ed materials for the proj-ect, gathering 28 wild-ower images, sketching out possible ideas, and assembling the tiles to all four sides of the obelisk in a matter of a month. After completion of the drafted plan, the group was required to present a proposal to SFSCs ad-ministration for approval so they could make their idea come to life. The group had some help from SFSCs Main-tenance Department, which assembled the concrete that was at-tached to a welded frame and embedded into a poured concrete founda-tion. Wildower Obelisk can be viewed in the sculpture garden east of the SFSC Art Depart-ment, outside the back pottery room door, and north of the graphics lab and MOFAC.SFSC students create Wildflower Obelisk Courtesy photoSFSC students Mason Belcher, Ashley Bennett, Gabe Clogston (design team leader), Anthony Darby, Teya Edwards, Hope Flowers, Ashley Kinkade, Luis Mata, Jennifer Napier, Erika Pascual, Holly Scherlacker, and Jared Turner created the sculpture named Wildower Obelisk.

The Avon Park Noon Rotarys fourth annual Bluegrass and Blueberry Festival from 10 a.m. un-til 4 p.m. at Donaldson Park will feature blueber-ries, bluegrass music and maybe even a few blue tongues by the time every-thing is said and done at the end of the day. The festival, which is free to attend, will offer a wide range of blueber-ry-themed items for sale along with live bluegrass music performed by two local bands and a clogging show. And there will be eating. Lots of it. Childrens activities will keep the kids occupied while parents, grandpar-ents and friends enjoy barbecue chicken dinner plates, fresh local blue-berries, blueberry plants, blueberry pie and cobbler, jams, blueberry lemonade and honey. Those with a compet-itive streak are likely to be found at the Blueber-ry Festival Bake-off or the blueberry mufn eating contest, both from 12:35 until 1:35. Entries will be judged based on the three basic criteria: taste and appeal, appearance and presen-tation, and originality and creativity. Winners will be announced at the enter-tainment tent during the festival. The festival is great. Its just a fun time. Were going to have almost 30 vendors this year. Id say about half of them are re-turning from last year. The bands performing will be Flatland Bluegrass and Generation Bluegrass, said Kimberly Batty-Her-bert, Rotary president. The dunk tank is fun. Its a fundraiser for the Avon Park football team, so that should be nice and refreshing for everyone. Theres bounce houses, pony rides, face painting. Were going to have lots of rafes including a ma-jor prize of a grill donated by Home Depot. Its im-portant to reinforce that all the money raised goes back into the community. Its a fun event for every-one. For more information visit www.rotaryblueber-ryfestival.com.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.

A post on the restaurants Facebook page earlier this month said the news came as unexpectedly as we deliver it to you. However, after receiving numerous calls, ofcials of Fairmount Partners, who recently bought the shop-ping complex on U.S. 27, have revealed the closing came as part of a protract-ed rental dispute. In fact, the landlord/ tenant matter was heard in the 10th Judicial Cir-cuit Court on April 4 with the Fairmount Partners in search of back rent. At the time, the complaint al-leged that Yiannis Prime Choice was more than $62,000 in arrears. It fur-ther alleged more than $5,600 was owed in cur-rent rent plus sales tax and other charges. Court documents show that although owner John Emanolidia testied that he had paid the March rent, ofcials from Prime Choice failed to produce any cancelled checks as directed by the court. The order directed the restaurant to pay $56,813 into the Registry of the Court in and for Highlands County by April 9. On April 10, a nal judgement of eviction was issued by 10th Judicial Cir-cuit Court Judge Peter Es-trada after Prime Choice Steakhouse failed to com-ply. The document then di-rected the sheriff of High-lands County to place Fairmount Partners in possession of the property.

Hami M. Asmar, 58, of Dingmans Ferry, Penn., was cited after his 2006 Peterbuilt hauling a box trailer shoved a 2011 Penske International cab and atbed, causing possible injuries to driver Thomas Richard Yelton, 59, of Zephyrhills, who was treated at Florida Hospital Heartland Division. Asmar said that Yelton had stopped suddenly at the red light, but Yelson said he had been waiting at the light when he was hit. The impact also blew out the back window of Yeltons truck and bent the rear bumper of the trailer while causing $10,000 in damage to the nose of Asmars cab, being examined here by a member of West Sebring Fire & Rescue.

Eva Christine Jackson, 23, of Sebring, has also been charged with sim-ple battery and resisting an ofcer with violence. Deputies were called at 2:37 a.m. Tuesday about a suspicious person in the area of Sparta Circle off Sparta Road in Sebring. A woman in a pink/or-ange shirt was yelling for someone to call 911. Deputies spoke to a man at 1813 Sparta Cir-cle, who said the wom-an was banging on his door yelling to be let in and have someone call 911 before running away. Deputies learned she was at 1751 Sparta Circle, where residents had let her come in until depu-ties arrived. Deputies, in arrest re-ports, described Jackson as scared and jumpy, changing her name from Sara to Eva and back, then asking where the deputys gun was. When the ofcer attempted to use his radio to call dis-patch, Jackson tried to grab it, reports said. He led her outside, and she allegedly tried to grab the radio again, along with the deputys shoul-der, against orders not to do so, reports said. When deputies told her she would be placed in hand-cuffs, she yelled no and tried to pull away, but deputies were able to re-strain her and took her to the Highlands County Jail, reports said.Sebring woman charged with aggravated battery on deputy BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterLAKE PLACID A man is in jail on charges of hitting a 15-year-old boy while ghting with the boys mother.

www.newssun.comFriday, April 25, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A5 NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIE W YOUR VIE WS For decades, Floridas best leaders have embraced open, accountable, ethical government as a fundamental right of the states residents. But others arent so sure. Open-govern-ment rules are seen as stumbling blocks to efcient action, and inquisitive mem-bers of the public cast as annoying gad-ies. Trust us, these ofcials say. We know whats best. These warring points of view play out in nearly every session of the Legislature. Last year, proponents of good govern-ment scored signicant victories, push-ing back against attempts to increase secrecy in government and making sub-stantial progress in reforming the states patchy ethics codes. And when the states annual legislative session started in March, it looked like another good year for Floridas residents. But with just two weeks left in the ses-sion, things arent looking so rosy. First, a straightforward bill that would further strengthen Floridas open-records rules has stalled out. The same fate has fallen SB 846, which would improve upon landmark cleangovernment legislation passed in 2013. The bill would extend ethics rules to qua-si-governmental entities like Enterprise Florida, putting better oversight on agen-cies that spend billions of state tax dol-lars. It also would include city and county ofcials in ethics-training requirements spelled out for state-level ofcials in the 2013 reforms, and empowers the state Commission on Ethics to act against of-cials who scoff at the states annual nan-cial-disclosure requirements. Both the ethics and the open-records bills are awaiting action in the House. And they have one more thing in com-mon the House versions are sponsored by Rep. Dave Hood, R-Ormond Beach. Hood, who has a long and laudable his-tory in local government, should do his utmost to convince House leadership to pass the Senate bills.An editorial from the Daytona Beach News-Journal.Legislature not bolstering faith in governmentThere are still some Good SamaritansI would like to thank the many people who stopped to assist my 89-year-old mother and me Sunday (April 20) about 11:45 a.m. My car stalled at the intersec-tion of U.S. 27 and Flare Road. Even with ashers on my car, it was only a matter of time until, I fear, we would have been hit. I believe two individuals turned around to assist and then one young man risked his life to cross 27 to offer to push my car off the road. Three other gentlemen also risked their lives to cross 27, then pushed my car off the road. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your kindness and valor.MIC HE LL E B A CKUS AN D R UTH DAVISSebringChristians should avoid Sea WorldAs a Christian, I nd it deplor-able that SeaWorld Orlando used Easter as a marketing ploy, by holding an Easter Sunday church service at the marine mammal abusement park. The documentary Blacksh ex-poses how SeaWorld tears orcas from their pods, connes them alone in tiny concrete tanks, rips babies away from their wailing mothers and ships them to oth-er parks, denies orcas veterinary care, and withholds food from or-cas who dont perform the con-fusing tricks that the trainers de-mand. I doubt that many of SeaWorlds executives have spent much time reading the Bible. If they had, they would note several verses in which God condemns cruelty to animals. Most theologians recognize that when God gave Adam domin-ion over the animals in Genesis 1:26-28, the word is more accu-rately translated as steward-ship, meaning that humans are to watch over and respect the rest of Gods creation. We were created in Gods im-age of love (1 John 4:8) and are called to show love to the world. God commends those who do so, saying, Blessed are the merci-ful (Matthew 5:7). Jesus tells us in Matthew 25:40, As you did it to one of the least of these, my brethren, you did it to me. Christians should ee from Sea-World as quickly as the animals would if the gates were opened.MIC HE LL E K R ET Z E RDunedinEvery so often, someone in politics says something so preposterously hilarious that were at pains to pre-vent our coffee from exiting our noses. So it went on Sunday morning, when Democrat-ic national chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz opined on Meet the Press about the Obama adminis-trations decision to punt on the Keystone XL pipeline. The project, which would ship tar sands oil from Can-ada to Texas reneries, has been in limbo for ve years. Team Obama decided in 2011 to postpone a decision until after the 2012 elec-tions; last Friday, it decided to postpone a decision until after the 2014 elections. But when asked about the timing of those punts, Wasserman Schultz said: I want to make sure that the right decision is arrived at. And that the president makes that decision care-fully, and he doesnt factor politics into his decision. Which I dont think he is. He doesnt factor politics into his decision... What a thankless job she has, sling-ing bull with a straight face. Anyone who thinks the timing of the latest punt is non-political must surely believe in unicorns. Obama is trying to stoke a robust midterm turnout from lib-eral Democrats, and he knows theyre more likely to stay home if he said yes to an oil project that they hate. Karl Rove was right (yes, he was) when he said this weekend on Fox News, If course it was about politics. Its all about politics. Rove knows what hes talking about, because he similarly intertwined poli-tics and policy when he was a George W. Bush opera-tive. Back in March 2002, the Bush team suddenly scrapped its free-trade prin-ciples and slapped a 30 per-cent tariff on foreign steel in order to protect Ameri-can steelworkers. The Bush team said with a straight face that its decision was solely based on good eco-nomics, but everyone knew what Rove, a key player in this episode, was really up to. He was doing political spadework for Bushs reelection bid, by wooing la-bor voters in key steelwork-er states like Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio. We can endlessly de-bate the policy upsides and downsides of the Keystone pipeline its job-creat-ing potential (or lack there-of), its energy potential, its environmental impact (27 million additional tons of carbon dioxide pumped an-nually into the atmosphere, according to the State De-partment) and these trade-offs are undoubtedly weighing on the Obama ad-ministration. My focus is on the politi-cal factors that continue to vex the president. If Obama had decided to nix the pipe-line prior to the midterms, he wouldve pleased his lib-eral base but he wouldve further imperiled the redstate Democratic senators who are currently struggling to win re-election. S upport for the pipeline is particularly strong in those states, and Republicans wouldve ratcheted up their efforts to tie the incum-bents to a liberal president whos perceived as hostile to oil. On the other hand, if Obama had decided to OK the pipeline prior to the midterms, his liberal base, and many of his biggest lib-eral donors (most nota-bly, billionaire Tom Stey-er), wouldve gone ballistic. They view the Keystone de-cision as a major test of Obamas willingness (or lack thereof) to combat glob-al warming, so a Yes on the pipeline might well have closed the donors check-books and turned potential liberal voters into midterm couch potatoes. By the way, the liberal base is out of the main-stream on Keystone. According to an ABC NewsWashington Post poll last month, 65 percent of Amer-icans including 65 per-cent of independents want the pipeline. Only 36 percent of self-identied liberal Democrats agree. We talk a lot here about how of-ten the Republicans are be-holden to their right-lean-ing base; on Keystone, its Obama beholden to his. So, politically, it appears that his arguably best deci-sion was to forego a deci-sion (yet again). His punt leaves both Democratic fac-tions somewhat dissatised, but, from the Obama teams perspective, it wouldve been worse to choose. Problem is, there will al-ways be another election on the horizon not sur-prisingly, likely 2016 can-didate Hillary Clinton has yet to take a position on Keystone so who knows when or whether this limbo will end....and whether any-one still believes what JFK said 52 years ago in Phila-delphia: Our responsibility is one of decision for to govern is to choose.Dick Polman is the national po-litical columnist at NewsWorks/ WHYY in Philadelphia (newsworks. org/polman) and a Writer in Resi-dence at the University of Philadel-phia.

Terry worked at the High-lands County Sheriffs Ofce as a Detention Depu-ty beginning Aug. 15, 1986 and retired on July 19, 2005. She re-ceived a Valor award in 1994 for saving the life of another. Through-out her time serving the community at the Sher-iffs Ofce, Terry received nu-merous recognitions and let-ters of appreciation from supervisors and citizens. She is survived by her daughters, Robin Hinote of Avon Park and Kim Hinote of Sebring; son, Craig Hinote of Lecanto, Fla; ve grandchil-dren, Joshua Catarelli, Lee Hinote, Kiana Antone, Gina Catarelli and Mya Antone; -anc, Warner Graham; and brother, Roy C.

HINO TE OBITUARIES Backpack program from coverage in the Feb. 2 News-Sun, and members of the Elks agreed to vol-unteer for the entire year, especially since helping children is an Elks mis-sion. What better way to help children than to feed them? Mason asked. She said that the pro-gram provides weekend meals for 100 local ele-mentary school children who would have little or nothing to eat during that time otherwise. You never think you have it in your own back-yard, Blanda said. Blanda said there are 25 children each in the program from four local schools: Avon Elementa-ry, Fred Wild Elementary, Lake Country Elementary and Memorial Elementa-ry. They each get breakfast with Frosted Flakes and milk; lunch with grano-la bars, applesauce, can-dy and juice, and dinner with Chef Boyardee meals, vanilla pudding, juice or milk. This is the only real food they have all week-end, Mason said. The individual bags are placed in plastic tubs and delivered each Wednesday to school administrators, who then distribute them, Blanda said. Blanda said she and fel-low Food Bank volun-teers have picked food items for nutrition as well as easy storage and no preparation they dont need chilling, heating or a can opener. Blanda said there are more than 300 students in the affect-ed schools who qualify for free or reduced-price lunch at school cafeterias under federal assistance guidelines. She said the program started with a $22,000 in grants and donations. The community has been very generous with their food, time and mon-ey, Blanda said. She said the hope is to raise $41,000 for next school year and expand the program to 200 stu-dents, 50 per school. Right now, each weekend costs less than $4 per child, with a 30-cent surplus and no extra administration costs, Blanda said. She works with volunteers like Butler and shopper Adam Ray, who nds bargains or do-nations to keep costs low. Ray, with Unity of Se-bring Life Enrichment Centre, said he spends one day each month fo-cused on shopping for food for 20 households approximately 50 peo-ple who are either dis-abled, low-income or both. Blanda said keep-ing costs down would be impossible without local churches help and weekly volunteers.

He didnt have to have any chemotherapy, they (doctors) were able to remove it all surgically each time he needed it. Crosbys battle with the disease was a struggle, but it did not defeat him. He passed away in Oc-tober, but not from can-cer. He died from old age, natural causes, said Sca-li. Scalis mother-in-law, Jackie, also battled cancer for several years, along with other serious ail-ments. She had breast cancer, but she didnt receive any chemotherapy for hers. She also passed of old age last fall, Scali said. Although two deaths would be enough to break the spirit of almost any-one, Scali and her fam-ily faced a third tragedy involving a close family friend. My good friend, Nora Meadows, passed in De-cember. She also had breast cancer as well as a brain tumor. She had her breast removed ... and then chemotherapy. Un-fortunately, after that they found a tumor in her brain that was inoperable. They tried radiation with her, it just did not work, Scali said. Scali led a team of walk-ers in her hometown of Frostproof since 2004 and served as chairman of the Frostproof Relay for two years. I enjoy doing these, particularly how they do them here where each city has its own Relay. Ev-eryone has their opportu-nity to make a difference in their community and sort of show off what all they can do for the Amer-ican Cancer Society. It makes for good competi-tion, said Scali. Scalis small team of seven members is a rsttime entry into the Avon Park Relay. The fami-ly relocated to Highlands County from Frostproof recently. When I got here I de-cided to join the Avon Park relay. I already have so many friends here it just was an easy deci-sion, said Scali. The team goal is $1,000 for this years relay. So far, 18 teams and 193 registered participants have raised nearly $18,000 for this years Relay for Life at the Avon Park High School Joe Franza Sta-dium Friday, May 2, at 6 p.m. This years honorary chair will be 15-year-old Avon Park High School student Jade Jackson.

The report also indicat-ed there had been near-ly $5.3 million in property value taken with an esti-mated $1.6 million recov-ered. The biggest single category there was motor vehicles. Of the $1.9 mil-lion worth of cars stolen, a little over $1 million worth was recovered. We are still reviewing all of these numbers and the denitions by catego-ry to see what they really mean, Benton said. Statewide, Floridas crime rate dropped 4.7 percent in 2013 compared to 2012, putting Florida at a 43-year crime low. The total number of crimes across the Sun-shine State reportedly fell 3.8 percent from 2012 numbers, which translates into 27,380 fewer crimes in 2013. The number of violent crimes also was down 2.4 percent. Murder was down 3.9 percent state-wide, with forcible sex of-fenses and robbery each declining by 2.8 percent. Aggravated assault was down 2.1 percent. There were 15 fewer vic-tims of domestic violence in 2013 statewide, with co-habitants being the larg-est group of victims in this category. Spouses re-mained as the second largest group. The complete 2013 An-nual Uniform Crime Re-port, including countyby-county breakdowns, can be found on FDLEs website at www.fdle.state. .us/fsac/ucr/. CRIME FROM PAGE A1They had an eight-day window, starting Tues-day, to nish end-of-year testing for the district, which includes FCAT, end-of-year exams and tests for both advanced placement and Inter-national Baccalaureate classes. The full shut-down Wednesday was the scar-iest thing weve dealt with, Davis said Thurs-day. Because everything is running smoothly (now), Im hoping its re-solved. Problems started Tues-day when a comput-er glitch canceled test-ing that day for several school districts through-out Florida, including Highlands. Davis rst learned of that issue at 8 a.m. Tues-day when the districts career academy at South Florida State College at-tempted to start test-ing and ran into prob-lems. At 8:15 a.m., her ofce got a phone call from Commissioner of Education Pam Stew-art acknowledging the problem and promising updates on the situation throughout the day. We never got on, Da-vis said. Some districts were stopped mid-test. Some couldnt submit (tests). Davis also didnt hear back that day. A confer-ence call between Stew-art and Florida school superintendents re-vealed that the prob-lem was not test provid-er Pearson Educations website, but was Centu-ryLink, the Internet ser-vice provider under con-tract with Pearson. Davis told the High-lands County School Board at Tuesdays reg-ular meeting that Pear-son was planning to hire another provider, test the system overnight and decide Wednesday morning whether or not to move forward. Da-vis was concerned lo-cal testing could still be at risk because Century-Link is the districts local provider. A message Davis re-ceived from Stewart ear-ly Wednesday morning said the Department of Education had worked with Pearson through the night, and Pearson had put in safeguards, such as backup access lines to its production servers. The message also stat-ed that Pearson had xed the original com-patability issue that interrupted service through CenturyLink, but had also hired an-other service provider to minimize the risk of fur-ther interruptions. The new connections were tested and veried over-night, the message said. Davis said elementa-ry school tests were not affected, because they were in the midst on on-paper exams. Their computer-based test-ing wont begin in those schools until next week, she said.

A8 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, April 25, 2014 www.newssun.com Last week I covered a few of the myths regard ing bass shing and in this column Ill review a few more. Myth 6: Trophy bass are old sh. Fact: False. Most double-dig it bass, at least from southern waters where 10-plus pound bass are not uncommon, are fast growing and relatively young. A study in Florida found that a high per centage of angler-caught bass over 10 pounds were only 7 to 10 years old. Myth 7: Bigger lures al ways catch bigger bass. Fact: False. The key word here is always. Little lures catch big bass and big lures catch little bass. In feeding studies where bass were offered a range of forage sh sizes from small up to the maximum size they could eat, the bass al ways selected forage sh near the center of the size range. How big a forage sh can a bass eat? Largemouth can easily swallow a forage sh up to one-third its length. I have seen photo graphs of one 15-16 bass with a smaller 1314 bass stuck in his jaws. Bass will eat almost anything that moves in the water and appears to be food. Myth 8: The bass bite better when the water is moving; the ow brings forage to them. Fact: Kind of True. Flow can turn on the bite in tidal waters and hydropower reservoirs with periodic current. But loads of bass are caught in lakes and ponds where they never see owing water. Bass get active when the for age gets active. A great example of this is when they open the locks on the Kissimmee River. Bass seemingly go cra zy as the water rushes out and bait sh seem to be everywhere. Myth 9: Female bass help the male guard the eggs; thats why you of ten see two bass on a nest and can irritate the female into attacking your offering. Fact: False. You will nd a female bass at a nest before she spawns. Every biological study of bass spawning has found that the male guards the eggs and the female spawns and leaves. It is well established that female bass often spawn in multiple nests, depositing only a por tion of her eggs in each nest. Soon afterward, the female moves out into deeper water to rest and recuperate while the male stays on the nest, protecting it from ma rauding predators. Myth 10: The big bass always spawn rst. Fact: True. This generalization is true, but several of the reasons Ive heard that attempt to explain why are pretty hokey. Just accept it and ex pect the size of the bass you see on beds to get smaller as the spawning season wanes. I repeat, this is a gen eralization. Myth 11: The male bumps the female to loosen the eggs. Fact: False. The bass courtship and spawning ritual can get a little animated, but the male bumping SPORTS FISHIN AROUND Don Norton Bass Fishing Myths SEE BASS | A10 BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com AVON PARK One High lands County team kept their baseball season alive Tuesday night, albeit at the expense of another, as the Red Devils moved to the District 9-4A title game with a 6-0 win over Lake Placid. We just couldnt get it going when we needed to, Dragon head coach D.W. Daum would say af terward. The pitching of fresh man Daniel Simons had a little something to do with that. The young right hander went the whole way, scat tering ve hits, walking one and striking out six to pick up his 11th win of the season without a loss. And Kyle Kelley sparked the Avon Park (19-4) of fense with three hits and three RBI. Lake Placid posed a mi nor threat in the rst when Tyler Carr walked and Laine Daum singled with two out. But Simons got a grounder to shortstop Trey Frazier to get out of it. The Devils then got all the runs they would need in the bottom of the frame. Alfred Brown reached on an error to start it, with Luis Martinez then reach ing on an ineld single be fore Tyrone Perry smashed a single to right to bring Brown in. Lake Placid starter Jacob Cram struck out the next two batters, but Kelley lined a single to center to score both Martinez and Perry and stake Avon Park to a 3-0 lead. Cram tried to help his own cause with a single to lead off the second, and moved to second on a Jus tin Mason sacrice bunt. But Simons worked out of it with consecu tive ground outs and got through the next three in nings with only one Drag on batter reaching base. The Devils added some insurance runs in the bot tom of the fth. With one out, Perry and Mykel Gordon drew walks and when Mason Jahnas grounder was thrown away, two runs came in and put Jahna in scoring position. He would soon come home when Kelley sent another single to center to make it a 6-0 game. Simons then worked out of a sixth inning jam, which included a Daum double and Justin LaRosa single, and worked a onetwo-three seventh to se cure the win. Heading in to the game we were pretty condent and knew we had to get the job done to stay alive, Kelley said. And we are reaching a goal of putting another number up on the board. That other number would be a district cham pionship, which will take a win over McKeel (11-15) tonight at Head Field. The Wildcats edged past Mulberry by a 5-4 score in Tuesdays early seminal game, to set up the rubber match with Avon Park. McKeel gave the Dev ils their lone district loss of the season with a sixrun, seventh-inning rally at home on March 4, with Avon Park getting a little bit of atonement in a re match a month later with a 9-2 win. They have a good team and they are well coached, Red Devil head coach Whit Cornell said. But I think we match up well with them. Kelley, Simons key Red Devil win Dan Hoehne/News-Sun With an anxious Luis Martinez on third, Kyle Kelley smashed this two-run, rst-inning single to set the tone in Avon Parks 6-0 win over Lake Placid Tuesday. Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Daniel Simons had another stellar outing Tuesday, pitching a completegame shutout to move the Devils to tonights District 9-4A title game. BY DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.com The stage was a little bigger Wednesday, and the competition a whole lot stronger in the Region 3-3A Track and Field meet at Lake Minneola. But after the day long event of extreme ef forts, three Blue Streaks stamped their ticket to next weekends FHSAA State Finals. Jordyn Blount, Gary De marest and Byron Cobb all placed in the top four of their respective events to qualify for the penul timate track event of the year. Blount, who was com peting in three events at regionals nearly ad vanced in two of them. He just missed quali fying in the high jump, placing fth, and the 4X100 relay team was just three slots, and mere sec onds, from moving on. But Blount more than made up for it by going for gold in the long jump. The junior Blue Streak has won the event in ev ery one of Sebrings meets this season and kept up the winning streak by soaring a distance of 22feet, 11 1/2-inches. With the leap, Blount also set a new Sebring High School record. Demarest also just missed on moving on in two events. He took fth in the shot put, but tossed the dis cus 149-feet, 6-inches to take second and make a return trip to state in the event. Byron Cobb completed the trio of Streaks head ing to state, as he took third in the pole vault, clearing 12-feet, 6-inches. These qualifying ef forts, along with the near misses and other topeight placements tallied up points for the Sebring boys to nish fth as a team in the 26-team eld. I couldnt be more proud of the effort giv en by our athletes, head coach Cynthia Cook said. We took 20 athletes to regionals and got a lot of experience. For Blount, Demar est and Cobb, the season continues Saturday, May 3, with the Class 3A Finals at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville, beginning at 9 a.m. Blue Streaks sending three to State Dan Hoehne/News-Sun les Jordyn Blount set a new Blue Streak record in the long jump, winning the event at the Region 3-3A meet and moves on to the state nals next weekend. Special to the News-Sun ENGLEWOOD Vy ing to reach the District 11-5A Tournament title game, the Sebring base ball squad saw its sea son end with an 11-6 loss to host Lemon Bay Tuesday. The predominant ly young Streaks, battle tested through an inten tionally brutal regular season schedule, came out strong, plating two runs in the top of the rst. But the Manta Rays answered right back with two of their own and exploded for four in the second to take a 6-2 lead. Sebring added two in the fourth, with Cul len Lovett belting an RBI single to shave it to 6-4, but Lemon Bay put up another four-run inning in the fth to again pull Lemon Bay ends Streaks season SEE SEBRING | A10 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun les Cullen Lovett had a single, triple and RBI in his nal game for the Blue Streaks.

That determination is evident among the play ers as well. Its not what we ex pected from the season, sophomore third-base man David DeGenaro said. But we learned a lot this year and I think that will just re us up and make us more ready for next year. SEBRING FROM PAGE A8

LIVING BFriday, April 25, 2014 Outdoor-Friendly MaterialsHave you ever wondered how some products are suitable for the outdoors while others can only be kept inside? Various processes and materials give outdoor furniture and decor durability and weather-resistant appeal. SYNTHETIC FIBERSEver think about all the abuse from the elements outdoor pillows, seat cushions and umbrellas suffer? Between the sun, rain and everything in-between, fabrics made for outdoor use are designed to withstand the elements, keeping your newly designed patio fresh for all the parties to come. Synthetic bers used in these fabrics are designed to bead water, resist stains and maintain their color. With this in mind, you can lengthen the lifespan of such materials by covering them when not in use and avoiding prolonged exposure to rain or sun. ACRYLICS AND MELAMINEOutdoor drinkware and dinnerware made of acrylic and melamine provide much of the same great style as their glass counterparts with out the breakability. A nice set of acrylic drinkware and melamine dinnerware, such as Summer Quench Turquoise Goblets and Trellis Dinnerware, both from Pier 1 Imports, will keep your outdoor soiree safe and fun throughout the evening.SYNTHETIC RATTAN AND WICKERWicker may be the traditional material for outdoor furniture, but this new generation of synthetic wickers and rattans is not your grandmothers porch furniture. All-weather chairs, tables and more are woven of synthetic rattan or wicker over durable, rust-resistant frames, making them durable and easy to clean. This approach offers the exibility to incorporate a woven look into furniture of all styles from traditional to global, modern to whimsical without sacri cing durability and longevity. Family Features The arrival of summer, along with its sunny skies and beautiful weather, beckons homeowners to create a space to entertain guests and enjoy the great outdoors. Design an outdoor living room that merges style and function, and incorporates elements of indoor comfort. Whether entertaining for two or 10, the warmer weather provides an abundance of opportunities to lounge in peaceful, open-air surroundings. New offerings in decor and design breathe indoor inspiration into your outdoor spaces, creating a beautiful extension of your home for all to enjoy. Its easier than ever to bring the comfort and style of your favorite indoor spaces into your porch, patio and other outdoor areas, said Aimee Beatty, in-house stylist with Pier 1 Imports. From comfy throw pillows to trendy rugs, colorful artwork and cheery curtains, new outdoor products boast durability and so much style that your patio will be the neighborhoods go-to summer hot spot. Beatty shares some of her stylish secrets to make your outdoor space an elegant living space worth sharing.Arrange awayTreat your outdoor area as you would your living room. If space is limited, use sectionals to create seating in whatever arrangement ts best. If there is more room, add an investment piece, such as the Echo Beach Dining Table from Pier 1 Imports. This high-quality piece is made from handcrafted, all-weather synthetic rattan and offers plenty of space to arrange chairs just as you would in your dining room. Finish the look by layering your favorite accessories, such as handcrafted trays, detailed lanterns and a colorful oral arrangement to create a cheerful centerpiece that makes your guests feel welcome.Tie it all togetherTo let you in on a little secret outdoor rugs tie everything together and really bring a space to life. Simply layer a rug, such as Pier 1 Imports chic Wavy Geo Rug, with a beautiful seating collection, colorful cushions and pillows, and youve got an outdoor area that makes everyone comfortable and happy.Embrace the boldSome might be afraid to create a statement outside because its outside. But an outdoor living space lends itself to adventures with color and pattern, providing the opportunity to be bold and to go beyond your comfort zone. When shopping for the outdoors, remember anything goes.Make it uniquely yoursMix and match with color and patterns, and personalize your space with accents such as outdoor artwork, planters, umbrellas and more. A smart combination of accessories really transforms an outdoor space from simple to fabulous. Be bright, all nightThe sun may still be shining when the guests arrive, but youll need something to light up the night and keep the party going all evening long. Create a delightful, welcoming atmosphere with a variety of outdoor lighting options, such as string lights, paper lanterns or oating LED candles placed around the patio. Fashion an elegant glow with lanterns in various sizes, such as the Scroll Trim Lanterns from Pier 1 Imports.Serve in styleAl fresco entertaining always focuses on food, drinks and friends. A self-service food station or bar enhances the casual tone, freeing guests to grab refreshments whenever they please. This also allows you, the host, to focus on the fun at hand. Look for serving and drink carts that maximize space, such as the Rania Serving Cart from Pier 1 Imports, which has three levels so theres plenty of room to stash an ice bucket, drink dispenser, snacks, lawn games and more. So let the warmth of the season bring many memorable moments to your life and stylish elements into your outdoor spaces. For more great decorating ideas, visit www.pier1.com.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, April 25, 2014 www.newssun.com PUZZLE CORNER Solution on B6 JOCEL YN NO VECKAP National WriterThere are plenty of minimalist lms out there. And then theres the tiny sub-genre of the truly, ultra-min-imalist lms: One character. In one place. Think Buried, in which Ryan Reynolds spent 94 minutes stuck in a cofn, with a waning cellphone. Or All is Lost, in which Robert Redford spent 106 minutes adrift on a strick-en sailboat, with waning options. And now theres Locke, in which Tom Hardy spends 85 minutes in his car, just driving south on a British motorway, toward London. His life isnt in danger well, not in the liter-al sense. And the Bluetooth is work-ing just ne. The only thing waning is, quite simply, his carefully con-structed existence. In the course of one car ride, its all falling apart. It sounds almost trite to say that a lm like this lives or dies on its cen-tral performance (other actors ap-pear here, but only by telephone.) Trite, but true. And luckily, Hardy is compelling enough here to drive forgive the pun the action. Thats not to say Locke will work for everyone. Hardys performance as an upstanding, tightly controlled family man trying to right a terri-ble mistake is admirably restrained, in a situation when overacting must have been a constant temptation. But its precisely this strength of the lm, written and directed by Ste-ven Knight, that makes it heavy lift-ing for the viewer. It demands a lot of patience especially when it re-ally sinks in that this car, and Hardys face, will be everything you see. And it demands a willingness to absorb countless details on the fascinating subject of concrete pouring. Yes, concrete pouring. Did you know the difference between C6 con-crete and C5? By the end of this lm, you will. Ivan Locke (Hardy), you see, is a construction foreman, and early the next morning, hes due to supervise a huge project the concrete pour at the site of a new skyscraper. This is, in fact, the largest concrete pour to happen in Europe, outside of mili-tary or nuclear sites, as we keep be-ing reminded in phone calls of esca-lating desperation with Lockes boss and an underling. Why are these calls desperate? Be-cause on the eve of the biggest day of his career, Locke has left it all and started driving to London. Nine months earlier, on a business trip, he wound up with a bottle of wine and a lonely woman. Now, she is giving birth, all alone, and though he barely knows her, he feels he has no choice but to join her. Im going to do the right thing, he says, in a line that becomes a mantra. The dialogue takes place almost entirely in phone calls, and the most effective of these are between Locke and his wife (an excellent Ruth Wil-son), who gets the shocking news as shes preparing a family evening watching football on the telly. Hi love. I got sausages, she tells Locke happily when he rst calls. Soon, shes vomiting in the bath-room. Locke insists this is the only time hes ever transgressed in all their years together. The difference be-tween never and once is the differ-ence between good and bad, she tells him. The dialogue here feels raw and real. By contrast, things get unnecessar-ily maudlin when Locke starts speak-ing aloud to his dead father. Its as if Knight, whos penned an otherwise excellent screenplay, lost his nerve and felt compelled to add another layer of drama. Locke, an A24 Films release, is rated R for language throughout. Running time: 85 minutes. Three stars out of four.Hardy drives taut, compelling L ocke, in every possible way The Associated PressThis image released by A24 Films shows Tom Hardy in Locke.DEAR ABBY: I am a woman in a loving re-lationship with anoth-er woman. My family has been harsh in their re-marks to me, saying they would rather I was dead than doing this, or that I should move away if this is the way I am going to live. I have been married twice. Neither marriage worked out. During my childhood, I was molested by a family member. Since then, I have been scared of men and dont want to be around them. I have had crushes on women in the past, but didnt tell my family because Im a 30-year-old adult and I felt it was none of their busi-ness. I keep asking myself if my attraction to my lov-er was a choice, but I dont remember choosing this. All I remember is fall-ing for her and not want-ing to look back. Should I end this relationship and live alone forever? I nev-er want to be with another man as long as I live. ACHING IN AMARILLODEAR ACHING: Be-cause your family is so un-accepting of your sexu-al orientation, it would be interesting to know how they view your molester. Did you tell anyone what happened, and did you re-ceive counseling about it? If the answer is you didnt, then PLEASE consider getting some now to help you deal with any residu-al issues because you ap-pear to have a few like your fear of and aversion to all men. What your family said was cruel and uncalledfor. Its apparent they know nothing about ho-mosexuality. There is a chapter of PFLAG (Par-ents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) about two hours away from your community, lo-cated in Lubbock. You can nd it online at paglub-bock.org. It can provide information to help you build bridges of under-standing with your family. Assuming the feelings you have for this wom-an are reciprocated, the two of you might be hap-pier moving to a commu-nity that is more welcom-ing. Texas is a big, diverse state and Dallas, Houston or Austin might be a bet-ter t for you. DEAR ABBY: Im a 13-year-old girl who has been told many times that Im very mature for my age. Unfortunately, Im TOO mature. What I want most in the world is sex appeal. I long for the per-fect sex-crazed boyfriend. What can I do about this craving? BEYOND MY YEARS IN KENTUCKYDEAR BEYOND: The rst thing you should do about this craving is learn all you can about birth control and self-con-trol, because the per-fect sex-crazed boyfriend could get you and him-self into a world of trouble. At 13, you should be focused on sports and getting into and out of high school with a diplo-ma. Whoever told you you are mature for your age must have meant physi-cally, because when a girls No. 1 desire in the world is sex appeal and a sexcrazed boyfriend, it is not a sign of EMOTIONAL maturity.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil-lips, and was founded by her moth-er, Pauline Phillips.

www.newssun.comFriday, April 25, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 HEALT H Y LIVING Metro News ServiceRegular exercise can benet the body in many ways, helping men and women maintain healthi-er weights and lower their risks for developing po-tentially deadly diseases. Though many people are quick to associate exercise with its physical benets, those hours spent on the treadmill also can boost brain power. According to Dr. Bar-ry Gordon, professor of neurology and cogni-tive science at Johns Hop-kins Medical Institutions and coauthor of Intelli-gent Memory: Improve the Memory That Makes You Smarter, exercise has a direct impact on the brain. Thats because ex-ercise works directly on brain tissue, improving the connections between nerve cells, creating new synapses, growing new neurons and blood ves-sels, and improving cell energy efciency. So while many people may begin an exercise reg-imen with a goal of trim-ming their waistlines or toning their bodies, they might be happy to know that those physical ben-ets are accompanied by several cognitive benets as well. As the American Psy-chological Association ac-knowledges, the connec-tion between exercise and mental health is hard to ignore, and the APA notes that the following are just a few of the mental ben-ets men and women might reap from regular exercise. Improved mood Many people feel great after exercising, especial-ly if that exercise comes at the end of a particular-ly stressful day. Howev-er, those extra laps on the track or those hours spent on the treadmill dont just pay short-term dividends. In a controlled trial overseen by Duke Univer-sity researcher and clinical psychologist James Blu-menthal, sedentary adults with major depressive dis-order were assigned into one of four groups: su-pervised exercise, homebased exercise, antide-pressant therapy, or a placebo pill. Those in the exer-cise and antidepressant groups had higher rates of remission than those in the placebo group, and Blumenthal concluded that exercise was generally comparable to antidepres-sants for men and women with major depressive dis-order. In addition, in follow-ing up with patients a year later, Blumenthal found that those who continued to exercise had lower de-pression scores than those participants who were less active.Studies show exercise benefits the brain, too MetroStudies show that exercise works directly on brain tissue, improving the connections between nerve cells, creating new synapses, growing new neurons and blood vessels, and improving cell energy efciency.Dear Pharmacist: I started bioidentical hor-mones thanks to you, and feel dramatically better. I cant convince my sister who still takes a prescription estrogen drug from horse urine. What can I tell her since she wont switch medi-cines? T.W., Decatur, Ill. Answer: Forget the horse urine if you can, the bigger problem with estrogen is their byproducts. Most doctors agree, the human body preferentially breaks down estrogen hormone into cancer-promoting by-products (termed me-tabolites) instead of anticancer metabolites. This is more apt to happen if you tax your liver with a poor diet, household chemicals and other tox-ins. Your liver is always on overdrive and it has to break down the estro-gen that you take, eat or make. When I say take, I mean take as medi-cine; when I say eat, I mean eat from com-mercial meats or drink from plastic water bot-tles with BPA; and when I say make, I mean the estrogen hormone that men and women natu-rally produce. As women, we make estrogen for years (or take it or eat it). Men with prostate problem can benet from what Im about to say too. The goal for all of us is to cre-ate more of the safer es-trogen by-products, and less of the harmful byproducts. Heres how to do that: Methionine This dietary supplement supports pancreatic health, so I often rec-ommend it for peo-ple who drink alcohol. Methionine provides sulfur (not to be con-fused with sulfa drugs) so it acts as a cellular cleanser. We call me-thionine a methyl do-nor because it literally donates methyl groups for a biochemical reac-tion in your body that rids you of poisons and harmful estrogen byproducts. Foods that donate methyl groups are good for you like beets, broccoli, leafy greens and sunower seeds. Methylcobalamin This over-the-coun-ter form of vitamin B12 reduces nerve pain and helps spark en-ergy. It provides that methyl group I men-tioned above that clears poisons from your body. Its this spe-cic methylcobala-min form of B12 that helps you, so read la-bels before purchas-ing. If you take a drug mugger of B12, you may need more than the dosage recom-mended on the label, but ask your doctor if thats okay. Antacids, some diabetes medi-cations, certain cho-lesterol binding medi-cines and alcohol wipe out your stash. Calcium D-Glucarate This supplement is not the same as plain calcium. Toxins and carcinogens have to combine with watersoluble substances to leave your body so this one combines with es-trogen to help it get out. Folks with cancer often have high lev-els of a bad enzyme, Bglucuronidase, and low levels of a protective substance called Dglucaric acid. This is yet another benet to taking calcium D-glu-carate supplements. Iodine Deciency of this protective mineral is common in women with brocystic breast pain and breast can-cer. Iodine is essen-tial for you to produce thyroxine thyroid hor-mone plus, iodine has broad antifungal and antimicrobial benets. It helps you make safer forms of estrogen.Suzy Cohen is a registered phar-macist and the author of The 24Hour Pharmacist and Real Solu-tions. For more information, visit www. suzycohen. com.

It reads: U.S. Ship: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a colli-sion. Canadians: Recom-mend you divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision. U.S. Ship: This is the captain of a United States naval vessel. I say again, divert your course. Canadians: No. I say again, you divert your course! U.S. Ship: This is the aircraft carrier USS Coral Sea. We are a large warship of the United States Navy. Divert your course now!! Canadians: This is a lighthouse. Your call. I think about the cap-tain of the ship who was about to collide with a lighthouse all because he would not heed the warn-ing being sent to him. He thought that since he pi-loted the bigger, more powerful vessel, he had the right of way. That, my friends, is what we call good, old-fashioned stub-bornness. Stubbornness is a dan-gerous quality to possess, because it many times causes us to believe that we can never be wrong. And, when faced with the fact that we are sometimes wrong, we fail to repent of that wrong. In fact, we will often defend our error to the bitter end. Stubbornness absolute-ly has no place in our spir-itual lives. Paul wrote to a group of Christians in the rst century who had this very problem. Romans 2:5-8 reads, But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God, who will render to each person accord-ing to his deeds: to those who by perseverance in doing good seek for glory and honor and immortali-ty, eternal life; but to those who are selshly ambi-tious and do not obey the truth, but obey unrigh-teousness, wrath and in-dignation. Do not let stubbornness get in the way of your re-lationship with God. Re-member, that He might just know more about some things than you ever will. So, listen more to Him and less to yourself. You will be eternally glad that you did!Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ, 3800 Sebring Park-way. On the Internet visit www. sebringcoc.com, or e-mail se-bringparkway@sebringcoc.com.Would you be too stubborn to divert your course? K EVIN S K OMMENTSKevin Patterson For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of your-selves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workman-ship, created in Christ Je-sus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them (Ephesians 2:810). Tragically, this beauti-ful Truth has been abused and misrepresented by theologians for centuries. As any Biblical subject, grace must be understood in view of Jehovah Gods eternal plan for mankinds redemption consider-ing Deitys part as well as the individual persons in-volvement in salvation. Wilsons Old Testament Word Studies identies grace (chen) as: de-notes a free and sponta-neous willingness to be-stow good on him that is destitute of it, either in a way of kindness, or in a way of compassion; hence to show favour, mercy, pity, as the act of previous goodwill. The word ex-cludes all idea of merit or desert in the object of free favour. The will and the act are closely conjoined in this word as it is used of God, and the force and emphasis are transferred to the New Testament in the words of Ephesians 1:6 and Luke 1:28. Vines Complete Expository Dic-tionary denes grace (charis) as having vari-ous uses: objective, that which bestows or occa-sions pleasure, delight, or causes favorable regard, the spiritual state of those who have experienced its exercise; subjective, on the part of the bestower, the friendly disposition from which the kindly acts pro-ceed; on the part of the re-ceiver, a sense of the favor bestowed, feeling of grati-tude. As a testimony to its var-ious uses, grace/favor is used some 150 times in the New Testament. An ex-cellent summary of this is seen in Pauls statement regard grace in his life: For I am the least of the apostles, who am not wor-thy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all, yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me (1 Corinthi-ans 15:9,10). Perhaps a good starting place to study this most profound subject would be a familiar event in his-tory, Noah and the ark/ ood. But Noah found grace (favor NAS, RSV, NIV) in the eyes of the Lord (Genesis 6:8 NKJV). What constituted Jeho-vahs grace/favor to Noah? Warning of the coming de-struction/ood and how to escape it. He was giv-en instructions to build the ark/boat and Thus Noah did; according to all that God command-ed him, so he did (Gene-sis 6:22; 7:5). Hebrews 11:7 gives us this additional in-formation, By faith Noah, being divinely warned of things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared an ark for the saving of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righ-teousness which is ac-cording to faith. Question What saved Noah: Gods grace, No-ahs faith, Noahs obedi-ence? Some would quick-ly answer: Gods grace only! and others Noahs faith only! But rethink the answers in the con-text of the matter. As pre-viously stated, Gods grace to Noah was information about the pending ood and instruction on how to build the ark of safety. Now he had to make a de-cision: ignore the warning and pay the consequences or by faith heed the warn-ing and follow the instruc-tions and, of course, we know what he did. Noah did not earn or merit the favor of God (see deni-tions above) but rather ac-tivated the gift of grace by an obedient faith. As we shall see in future studies of grace, the gift of Jesus, the Christ (Romans 6:23) is received in the same way obedient faith. We do not refer back to the history of the ood to learn how to build a boat but, rather to learn about saving faith as one of the many such examples. Now all these things hap-pened to them as exam-ples, and they were writ-ten for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come (1 Corinthians 10:11). He-brews 11 is lled with such lessons that will demand our attention and study.Frank Parker can be contact-ed at frankparker27@gmail. com.

His beatication, an explo-sion of pride and jubilation. But days before John Paul II is to be declared a saint, many of his countrymen are greeting the landmark with little more than a shrug. One reason is that John Paul has al-ready long been a saint in Polish hearts so making it ofcial with Vatican pageantry is just a bit of icing on the cake. But its also clear that less than a decade since his death, the enthusi-asm that Poles accord their great coun-tryman seems to be dissipating, just as memories of him fade and a new gen-eration comes of age in this young EU country that is moving toward a more secular outlook. Only a few hundred people turned out in Warsaws main square for prayers before the popes relics on April 2, the ninth anniversary of his death. And there is little talk in Polish media of the April 27 saint-making ceremony at the Vatican. It all contrasts sharply with the pontiffs 2011 beatication, which was preceded by months of media frenzy and church preparations across Poland. Who needs this canonization? said Andrzej Grendys, stressing that he is Catholic but does not go to church. We all know that he was a very good and decent man with a great heart and mind. That is most important and needs no ofcial conrmation. And many say the country has al-ready completed its emotional reckon-ing with John Pauls life and death. We have discharged our emotions in spontaneous outpourings at John Pauls beatication and death, said Ar-tur Sporniak of the Tygodnik Powszech-ny Catholic weekly.No JP II fever in Poland as canonization nears The Associated Press/In this April 2 le photo an unusually empty main square with a commemorative cross in downtown Warsaw, Poland during observances marking nine years since the death of much-loved Polish-born Pope John Paul II.

B6 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, April 25, 2014 www.newssun.com PHUONG LEAssociated PressSEATTLE The Boy Scouts of America has re-voked its charter agree-ment with a Seattle church that refused to re-move a gay troop lead-er after the organization withdrew his member-ship. A Boy Scouts attorney told Rainier Beach Unit-ed Methodist Church last week that it no longer could host troops under the Boy Scouts name. The church has stood by Geoff McGrath, 49, a Seattle software engineer and Eagle Scout, after his membership in the orga-nization was revoked last month, setting off an im-passe between the church and one of the countrys most popular youth orga-nizations. The Boy Scouts of America told McGrath in a March letter that it no choice but to revoke his registration after he said he was gay while being proled by NBC News. Boy Scouts of America ofcials said McGrath vi-olated the groups leader-ship qualications. They also said he deliberate-ly injected his sexuality into the scouting program when he made state-ments to the media and the organization about his sexual orientation. As a Reconciling Con-gregation, its important to us that we are open to all people, said the Rev. Monica Corsaro of Rainier Beach United Methodist. The church supports Mc-Grath because his work reects its spirit and val-ues. McGrath has been lead-ing Seattle Troop 98 since its formation last fall. The church also spon-sors a Cub Scout Pack for younger boys. The church has ob-tained legal counsel to evaluate its options, Cor-saro said. The Boy Scouts began accepting gay youth for the rst time this year but has continued to exclude openly gay adults from leadership positions. McGrath said Monday he will continue to par-ticipate in the churchs youth program even if it cant use the Boy Scouts name. Just because the BSA doesnt want to be in-volved with this church and these kids, we will still have a robust youth program for our kids, McGrath told The Associ-ated Press in a telephone interview. Its one of the best things I do. One of the things that really makes my week is spending time with these kids.
