The campers nd out its not just about going for rides. Theres also record keeping, veterinary requirements, farrier work and, of course, mucking the stable.

A suspicious package was planted in the sor ting r oom of the post ofce, unbeknownst to employees. The package was addressed to Mayor John H olbr ook with a fake address; the return label was from The Munsters with the famous T V sho ws address. On the ofcial-looking parcel was Youre time is up. Another warning sign was the white po w der trickling out of it. The package was sorted in the custom ary fashion and not agged and r epor ted, which delayed the start of the drill. We had some aws, stated Charles Andrews, county Fire Service supervisor. Overall, the team per formed well. There are a couple of minor details we need to improve on. When the call was made police, ambulances, re and hazmat tr ucks had the post ofce surr ounded with a quick r esponse time of three minutes. The emergency call went out at 9:20 / a.m., was r elayed by dispatch at 9:22 and emergency agencies were on the scene at 9:25 / a.m. Do zens of rst re sponders set up operation stations and a decontamination tent. Each team had v er y specic goals. We wanted to test our product sampling with an unknown agent, explained Andr ews. O ur system checks for over sixty thousand chemicals. In a real situation, we would test the powder and if it came up as a pro tein, like anthrax does, w e would aler t the FBI and State Warning Point and they would take over the criminal investigation. Andrews points out that, although the ex ercise wasnt perfect, at least the pr oblem was caught in a training scenario. That is the objectiv e to tr aining, practice, drill and make impr o vements. I was very impressed with every one involved, said Andrews. If this was a r eal scenar io, I would have felt comfortable with the way it went.Hazmat drill reveals areas for improvement Kim LL eatherman/ LL ake PP lacid JournalFirst responders from local emergency rescue departments work on a strategy to handle a suspicious package in the Lake Placid post ofce during Thursdays training exercise. BY BA RRYRRY F OO S TERTER News-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING Taxes and land restrictions again will be the focus of Highlands County commissioners when they meet in regular session Tuesday mor ning. A t their last session, commissioners discussed the re-implementation of the extra penny on the dollar sales tax and a number of new places those monies could be spent. Or iginally designed to provide funding to allow for growth under the comprehensive land development plan, the or dinance that will be presented Tuesday would allow for court-related functions and the funding of economic dev elopment pr ojects. Commissioners dismissed a staff r ecommendation that the sunset on the tax be extended fr om 15 to 20 years. As part of the effort, commissioners again will be asked for a $25,000 allocation of tax dollars to prepare a mail out, telling residents of the positive aspects of the tax and ho w it has beneted the county. The matter must rst be put before the voters. Preliminary plans are to have it in cluded on the primary ballot in A ugust. Commissioners also will look at extending the suspension of impact fees in the county. The collection was halted in J uly of 2009 with the promise that it would spur additional growth. I f commissioners take no action, the fees again will be implemented. Letters hav e been sent to the school board and all three municipalities requesting their comments and input on the matter I n April, commissioners were supposed to look at the establishment of M ilitar y Airport Zones or MAZ s acr oss the county. The action is part of a Joint Land Use Study done in 2011 regarding the use of current dev elopment standar ds in areas around the r ange There are three designations, with maps indicating a MAZ III zone that would totally encompass the cities of A v on Park and Sebring and extend well into the south end of Lake Istokpoga. Ofcials say the MAZ overlay would be established to ensure that land uses and activities are compatible with the Avon Park Air Force Range by establish ing development standards and criteria for unincorpor ated ar eas of the county. Among the restrictions for MAZ I and MAZ II, which co ver sparsely populat ed areas immediately ar ound the R ange and to the east and south of the Range extending into Okeechobee and O sceola counties are height limitations for buildings to as lo w as 50 feet with airspace management and approach procedures to take precedence in setting height limitations in some of the designated ar eas. S tr eet and parking lot lighting would also be limited in height and fully shielded in MAZ I and MAZ II.

It seemed to come out of nowhere, said Lorena Aleman of Waterway Avenue. The wind was blowing so hard, I thought we were experiencing a tornado. The western portion of the Placid Lakes subdivision took the brunt of the high winds and lashing rains. Animals were displaced as well as foliage. A raccoon entered Alemans porch of the Alemans, trapping himself inside. He tore up the porch, Aleman said. Terry Durante rescued a tiny edgling that had its nest ousted from a tree. I was working on Cumquat Road and I saw him on the ground, stated Durante. I made him a makeshift nest and I am feeding him with a syringe and surgical tubing. I am hoping he makes it. BY KIRSTEN SCARBOROUGHNews-Sun InternSEBRING The Annual Juneteenth Multicultural Festival is gearing up for its 15th y ear of br inging together Highlands C ounty s diverse population into one setting. N umerous church groups and organizations within Highlands C ounty attend our annual ev ent. We even dr aw people fr om outside our county, bringing others from places such as Daytona B each, said Sebrings festival organizer Bob Saffold. The Sebring Juneteenth celebration is scheduled to begin at 10 / a.m. S aturday, June 21 and last until 4 / p .m., weather permitting, at Bountiful Blessing Field, 820 Martin Lu ther King Blvd., across fr om B ountiful Blessings Church of God. J uneteenth became an ofcial state holiday in 1980 in Texas and has since spr ead through the U.S. and other countries, adding up to 39 participating states as of May 2011. The holiday has his torical roots. On Sept. 22, 1862, A br aham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. S ome ar eas, such as Eastern Texas, were re sistant to this change, ho w ever. On June 18, 1865, Union General Gordon Granger and troops ar rived in Galveston, Texas, to take possession of the state with intent to enforce the emancipation of the slaves. A ccor ding to legend, June 19 was the day Granger stood on the balcony of Galvestons Ashton Villa as he read General Order No.3, which states the abso lute equality of all and fr eedom of those enslav ed. The name June teenth was derived fr om a combination of the words June and nineteenth. The festival in Sebring will offer a wide v ar iety of activities as well as fun for the whole family. I wanted to bring the festival to Sebring to inform our commu nity and the surrounding area of Juneteenth and the histor y behind it, as well as inform others of different cultures, explained Saffold. S tor ytelling, step dancing, music and face painting are just a few of the activities on the schedule. A variety of vendors bringing food such as barbecue and desser ts, agencies featuring healthcare and childcare information, and merchants offer ing ar t and jewelry will also be present. Hundreds of indi viduals and groups attend each year. We nev er kno w exactly how many to expect, and vendors tend to show up last minute, too, which is great; we just never know what all well have until the event begins, Saffold said. Since the date of the actual holiday, the 19th, is on a Thursday, we celebrate ours the rst Saturday following so that more people are able to attend. Were expecting a larger crowd this year and have lined up a re ally good list for enter tainment that a lot of people should r eally enjoy, Saffold said.

www.newssun.comSunday, June 15, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEW YOUR VIEWSIf there was a saving grace to the events of March 9, it was that no ofcers or innocent bystanders were injured or killed when Floyd Gene Hodge Jr. went on a shooting rampage in his Sebring neighborhood that only ended when he was shot and killed by a Sheriffs dep uty. B y assessing the situation and think ing on his feet, Sgt. J ohn Singha was in position when H odge r aised his rie one last time to re shots at deputies. He stopped Hodge with a single bullet to the head. There is another positive aspect to this incident that needs to be addressed. The News-Sun has had its differences about public information with the Sheriffs Of ce in the past, which is why we thank Sher iff Susan Benton, Detective Nathan Coogan and Lt. Darin Hood for an ad ministrative review which is extensive and helpful not just so civilians can hav e a better understanding of what happened that foggy morning but so problems in the eld can be identied and dealt with. For example, there are still problems with confusing street names and num bers, even years after the 911 reconcil iation was supposed to be complete. S ingha or iginally responded to Old Plantation Avenue in the Carva Hills subdivision instead of Plantation Drive off of U.S. 98. That put the other two deputies who responded at even greater risk. On the foggy night, they thought the head lights they saw were Singhas patrol car, since he had reported being on scene. Instead, it was Hodges car. That set up what could have been a deadly ambush. Part of this problem is that High lands County streets and roads still do not confor m to the N ational Emer gency Number Association standards, which would eliminate duplicate str eet names. In the past the county commis sion has refused to adopt those stan dards. It is time for todays commission to take action. W e also thank H ood for including an analysis of the new radios in use. Like with any new technology, old habits are hard to break, and new ones to get set into routine. There should be more use of the new two-way radios, Hood pointed out, and less of use of wireless phones. The radi os provide more information to more ofcers without compr omising the content. Earpieces are recommended for every ofcer to keep their lives safer by making communication quieter. There is one last issue that must be addressed by the community, and it has nothing to do with the law enforcement response. If Hodge deserves any com passion, it is because he had no place to go for help for his obvious mental in stability Neither did his wife, who had become distr aught as H odges behavior spiraled out of control. It is time to get serious about having a local emergency mental Baker Act facil ity. We need a place where people at risk can get inter v ention before anyones life is put at risk again.Shooting report reveals changes need to be madeEvery now and then, when I am perusing Facebook, I get I have to ask myself, Self, do I want to get involved in that discussion? And believe me, if you have enough Facebook friends there are a TON of discussions you can get involved with. On just about any subject. I admit there are times I cave in and toss in my two cents worth. Just this very evening, some one posted a cartoon that equated members of the Tea Party with Islamic terrorists. The per son is a good friend of mine and I couldn t let the comparison pass without comment. There was one per son who was technically on the same side as I was that was pr actically fr othing at the mouth, anger ed b y the cartoon. I remained calm and inserted a comment here and ther e in a discussion that gr ewlets use the wor d inter esting, including the part where one poster postulated that I might be a terr orist because I claim to be a conservative Christian. And of course, doing so meant spending mo ments I can never get back. M oments expr essing a viewpoint I believe in to pr obably no av ail. Looking over the comments I dont see anyone changing their minds on the subject. I nstead, as I said in the previous paragraph, things got to the lower level rather quickly. The moral of this tale is this: Thou should not get involved in Facebook discussions. I was actually smart a couple of days ago and refrained from challeng ing another friend who posted a car toon that implied fundamentalist Christians were ter ried of science. Now I kno w that while some so-called Christians might be anti-science that most of us arent scared of it or see it as the enemy. I was tempt ed to correct the poster, but refrained, guring it wouldn t really do any good. When I posted that I had decided not to engage in a Facebook debate (dont look at me like that, it s not the worst thing to post on Facebook) I got a lot of support from others. At least one fellow writer pointed out that such activity pr obably failed what is known in my literary circles as the WIBBOW test Would I Be B etter Off Writing? So why was I able to restrain myself earlier, only to get sucked in by a different debate a short time later? I am not entirely sure. I suspect I thought giv en the person who posted the cartoon I could maybe make a differ ence just this once. That I could persuade her on my point of view on this matter. Nope. For the record, she is not the one who referred to me as a pos sible terrorist. But my fr iend s views were not changed by my points, and hers didnt do any thing to change mine. W e re pretty much agree ing to disagree on this one But Laura, some of you might say, You took a stand! Arent there times one must make a stand, even on Face book? While I agr ee w e can and should express our views, there are times and places to do it in. What good did my taking a stand do? Did it persuade any one? B ring anyone closer to God? Do any good besides maybe give me a column topic and entertain those who r ead the discussion? A t this point I feel like vowing I will restrict my Facebook activity to messaging friends and posting cute puppy pictures (there are enough people posting cute cat pictur es). But I know myself better than that. Someone will post something that catches my attention, and I will once again be tempted to get sucked into anoth er fruitless discussion. I f y ou catch me giving in, be gentle. And remind me Im better off wr iting. There are plenty of people willing to waste time debating on F acebook. I dont have to be one of them.Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@embarqmail.com Visit her website at www .laurahw are.com.

The major play ers in the Persian Gulf are the Shia Iranians and the Sunni S audis Iraq, former ly Sunni dominated and viewed as a counter balance to I ran, has become Shia dominated and manifests more and more cooperation with Iran while ren dering only lip ser vice to the democratic concepts it ostensibly embr aced ... As General Petraius observed, the success of Amer ica s surge depended in large part on the S unni population s participation in ghting Al Q ueda in r eliance on pr omises b y the U.S. that the new government would include signicant par ticipation, as M alaki had promised. We ar e no w witnessing a recreation of the conditions which existed when our forces had to play the major r ole in F allujah and the west. N ew alignments r esulting from the war in S yr ia, have provided the Sunni with a new ally M alakis duplicity and the lackluster performance of his for ces is no w being morphed into some fault on the par t of Obama, as if the U.S. had an obligation to maintain a substantial military presence to preserve Malakis government, despite the I r aqis opposition to our staying and it unwillingness to extent any meaningful status of forces agr eement. U nless and until Sunni and Shia can come to some realistic accommodation concer ning the go vernance of Iraq, any U.S. par ticipation somehow would be an exercise in futility.

A6 | NEWSSS U nN | SS unday, June 15, 2014 www.newssun.com 3045825 rrrf fn tfbr r 3049340 As a registered nurse, I can tell you one of the most important preventive steps people can take to stay healthy is to stay up to date on their vaccines. Illnesses such as seasonal u, pneumonia, meningitis and shingles infect Amer icans every year. E v en relatively rare diseases can make a comeback if too many people skip their vaccines. Par ents must be doubly diligent in keeping up-to-date on v accines for both themselves and their children. A ccor ding to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), vaccines save hundreds of thousands of liv es and prevent millions of cases of serious illness. Knowing this, it is alar ming that so many people do not receive the vaccines recommended for their age group. For example, ac cording to the 2012 N ational H ealth Interview Survey, only about 20 per cent of adults age 60 and older have been vaccinated against shingles. While better, the 60 per cent of senior adults vaccinated against pneumonia still leaves four in 10 seniors unprotected. And Floridas u vac cination rate among adults age 18-65 was a dismal 34.1 per cent during the 2012-2013 u seasons, the worst in the nation, according to an analysis by the T rust for Americas Health (TFAH). N umer ous outbreaks of dangerous v accine-pr eventable diseases are occur ring in the U.S. even no w According to the CDC, Princeton University is experiencing a prolonged outbreak of a rare form of meningitis that has sickened sev eral students. Ohio is experiencing a surge in mumps and is also gr appling with the largest outbreak of measles in the nation since 1996. And whooping cough, or per tussis, is up 24 percent nationally in the rst few months of this year. While there are a number of reasons people may not be getting the recom mended vaccines, w e can ensur e that access is not an issue. We must continue to eliminate barriers that keep people fr om getting v accinated. T wo y ears ago, the legislature passed and Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill per mitting pharmacists to administer the pneumonia and shingles v accines that are so critical for our seniors. Until then, Florida was in a small minor ity of states that had not taken that step. That was a positive development, and it makes sense to con tinue to expand the v accines phar macists can offer. In fact, pharmacists should be permitted to administer all CDC-recommended vaccines to those ages sev en and older. Thats because pharmacists are highly accessible health providers, often times more convenient and much mor e accessible than physicians. There are more than 4,000 community phar macies in Florida, including many in urban and r ural locations where there may be a shor tage of physicians. During the most recent legislative session, I worked with the H ealth and H uman Services Committee and other bill sponsors to add an amendment that would permit phar macists to administer meningococcal v accinations and to giv e the shingles v accine without a prescription. This legislation had str ong bipartisan support and I am pr oud to say it passed overwhelmingly in both the H ouse and S enate. Friday, Gov.Rick Scott signed this legislation into law. This is a gr eat step in the r ight direction and I plan to continue to advocate for additional v accinations Currently, 44 states authorize pharmacists to administer any v accine while Florida only currently allows pharmacists to administer thr ee With the continued strong support of both Republican and Democratic legislators, we will continue to pass v accine access expansion legislation and create more opportunities for Floridians to take this important preventive step for their health.Denise Grimsley represents the people of Okeechobee and par ts of Highlands,Martin, Osceo la, Polk and St. Lucie counties, which make up the 21st District in the Flor-Vaccine access should be expanded again VIEWPOINTS GUEST COLUMNDenise Grimsley Who is NATO?The recent take over of the Crimea by Russia has brought up the question, big time Who is NATO and where are they? With the break up on the Soviet Union in 1991, the think ing at the time was that the 28 countr ies that make up NATO were now a solid buffer against the spread of C ommunism in E urope. W ell, w e have found out thats so much jazz ... as the richest continent on earth is now being held hostage by Russia over oil and gas which E urope has in abundance. They (Europe) have also reduced their var ious military capabilities down to the siz e of N ational Guard units. Well, guess what? They want the Americans to come and defend them for the third time in ex actly 100 years.... W e alr eady have troops on the ground, planes over Poland and ships in the Black Sea. Its time the Europeans stood up to be counted. Why must we always have to sacrice our young people, our tears, and our tr easur e to accommodate people not willing to defend themselves? What P utin hasn t learned yet, however, is that the world is not run by armies any more, but economics. Money talks and he may hav e bitten off more than he can chew. I dont know what the foreign policy of America is, but it ap parently isnt scaring any one and I might add, neither is NATO.HAL GRAVESSebringEveryone should payHalf-cent sales tax will be on the ballot in November. This money raised will be for school impr o vements. When my children were in school, I paid school taxes. I still pay school taxes. I wonder how much money could be raised if everyone (documented or not) paid something (even 25 cents per child per week) for each child they have in school. Now these children want to go to college and want the resident rate, and I think ev ery child who wants to fur ther their education should be al lowed to have the opportunity.

The qualifying time for county judge was back in April. Judge Anthony Rittenour didnt pull any opposition so he won t be on the ballot, Ogg said. C andidates who wish to run for ofce need to have some paperwork completed, including the Florida Commission on Ethics Form S ix, which is nancial documentation, and a notarized copy of the Candidate Oath.

That then giv es us a chance to get them veried before qualifying is over with, Ogg said. That means that lastminute candidates will have to pay a qualify ing fee. Each amount is based upon the salar y of the individual ofce they are seeking. It also includes a party assessment for partisan candidates. I n the past, ther e have been some last-minute candidates who have come in at the deadline on Friday, but Ogg said that could be a risky strategy.

Sgt. John Singha was able to get within 42 feet of Floyd Hodge and re a single shot from his departmentissued AR-15 rie. The shot killed Floyd Hodge and sparked an investigation that cul minated Thursday with the release of an administr ative report. Lisa H odge said in her statement for that report that she and her husband had been married for 10 years, had known each oth er for 11-12 years and had liv ed together befor e marriage. But F lo yd Hodge stopped being himself in October or November 2013, accor ding to Lisa Hodges statement. He was staying over at a friends house until 2 / a.m., smoking weed and stuff. He was already tak ing a painkiller to help w ean him off a dependence on other pain killers she said. O n or around Nov. 13, he came back say ing he saw demons on the neighbor s house, and then dressed in his military fatigues and told her he saw Chinese soldiers hiding in the bushes. After seeing him passing out, and nding drug paraphernalia around the house, she disco v ered a bag with a white powdery substance. She threw it away and then confronted him about it. D espite his denials and hers and her mother -in-law s attempts to drive away his dr ug supplier the situation got worse on Feb. 18 when he didnt sleep for three days. At the end of those three days, Lisa Hodge said, she attempted to drive the demons out with prayer, but even tually her husband became violent shoving, slapping, dragging and kicking her only stopping when he seemed to be talking to someone who wasnt there, telling that per son to stop hurting her. F r om that point on, they would argue regularly, and he asserted that the neighbors had infected him with demons or w ere using microwave radiation against him. He would ask her to rebuke the demons, but when she prayed, he would become more irritated and break things in the house, her statement said. The day before her birthday, she tried to talk him into volun tarily getting help, but he wouldn t listen, she said. Then on March 5, and again on March 6, for her birthday, she asked if he would go to a church service with her. He agreed, and on the way there, they held hands and told each other I love you. She asked leaders at the church to pray for him. Floyd didnt want to leave the ser vice, she said, but after they left, he didnt dr iv e home, but to a house she didnt know off State Road 64. Then he drove home. She tried to ask him about the house if it was a drug suppliers house but he just turned the radio up loud, she said. Over the weekend before the shooting, Lisa Hodge had pre pared paperwork to invoke the Marchman A ct, a F lorida law that helps family members get help for a loved one who is unwilling to seek help for substance abuse. She had planned to tur n it in on Monday, March 10. The night of March 8, after riing through her purse and ring a gun in the house, he left in the night for where Lisa Hodge be lieved he had a drug supplier in P olk C ounty. She had a GPS tr acker on the car and was watching his travel on her phone. She spent the night texting his mother about his movements and fell asleep texting and praying in a sec ond house on the couples property, located away fr om their nor mal r esidence. A t 4:24 / a.m., she was awakened to gunre, and saw him out by their car ring his gun at something, so she called 911, telling dis patch he was demonpossessed and asking them not to hurt him. Deputies arrived and tried to reason with him, but Singha ultimately had to shoot him to get him to stop shooting at neighbors and his fellow deputies. I n the day and the week following the shooting, Sheriff Susan Benton said she would hav e pr eferred that Lisa Hodge had been able to get her husband help sooner. Right now, deputies must dr iv e to Bartow to take someone to the nearest Baker Act facility, which allows ofcers to institutionalize an individual inv oluntar ily for mental health examination. S ince becoming sheriff 10 years ago, Benton has said she wants interconnected and local preventative substance abuse and mental health care, which are often inter connected in cases like H odge s. Law enforce ment often encounters people who hav e both issues, she said, because one problem often affects another. H er ofce in partnership with the Highlands County Board of C ounty C ommission and Tri-County Human Services, applied on O ct. 20, 2013 for a Criminal Justice, Mental Health and Substance Abuse Reinvestment Grant to facilitate tr eatment within the county, but it was denied. S he is still looking for ways to establish a facility, she said. For now, police ofcers and deputies will have to rely on out-of-coun ty resources and hope family members can get help for their lo ved ones. WIFE FROM PAGE A A 1for Humanity.

Owls Fastpitch was the brainchild of Avon Park native and SFSC assistant coach Heath er Barnes. I was giving hitting lessons to some local girls that were talking about getting a competitive local team together, Barnes said. I said if I can get at least 12-14 local girls that would commit that I would do it. Barnes set up a pair of tryouts, which drew girls from Highlands as well as neighboring counties. Heather posted it on Facebook and girls from Hardee, Lake Wales and Lake Placid all ended up coming, said Lady Blue Streak Mattie Coe. She made some cuts but really didnt have that much talent, so I got in touch with all of the local girls I grew up playing with Raveen (Gobourne), Emily (Gilbert), Shan non Huber, Kiana Antone and Lahna (Sedatol) are the ones that really got it put together because H eather wanted a r eally competitiv e team. The pr edominantly H ighlands County team now together, with Lady R ed D evils Victoria Perry and Alyssa Rivera also joining in, an initial pr actice was held on May 22, with their rst competitive tournament taking place just two days later .New local team stands out at Showcase Dan Hoehne/News-SunSebrings Emily Gilbert hauls in this y ball for an out in Owls Fastpitch win over Cape Corals Lady Panthers Friday in the Shockers Summer Showcase at the Highlands County Sports Complex.

SEE OWLS | A11 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Overcast skies remained from Friday nights deluge and caused some wor ry for race organizers as the annual H ear tland Kids Triathlon was set to go S atur day morning. But the start of the weekend went off without a hitch, and Satur days throng of child tr iathletes only got w et from the waters of Lake Jackson and their own perspiration. There were two seg ments of races that w ent in wav es as the 6to 10-year olds got set to start at 7:30 / a.m., while the 11to 15-year olds got the later start. The 10-year olds were the rst wave of their segment to start the 100-yard swim, fol lowed by a three-mile bike r ide and nishing up with a half-mile run. The older kids saw those distances double for their segment, with a 200-yard swim, sixmile bike ride and onemile run. In the eldest age group, Bradentons Emma Stock won in the girls 15-year old, while Tampas Ricardo Reyes topped the boys. Locally, Trevor Doty placed fth in the age group, little more than three minutes back. In the girls 14s, Rea gan Quilty of St. Petersburg won in 27:50 and L uis Or tiz of Orlando took rst among the boys in 25:04. Paige Van Mid dlesworth of Seminole topped the list of the 13-y ear old girls, while Sebrings Katelyn van Fleet nished eighth in the group. On the boys side, Lachlan Hovius of Groveland took rst with Sebrings Chase Doty placing third. Meghan Buchan an won the girls 12s in 28:24 while S ebr ing saw locals Kyle Caputo and Elisabeth van Fleet get 15th and 16th. In the boys 12s, Colin Wilson of Miami won in 27:39, with three Se bring boys came to the nish line in the for ms of Keegan White, 6th, Matt Andrews, 8th, and Mason Grifn, 12th. The girls 11s had Parklands Hannah Fowler nishing rst with Sebrings Shayla BRIAN MAHONE YY AP Basketball WriterMIAMI The San Antonio Spurs left Miami last June looking so human, T im Duncan nearly in tears talking about ho w close they were to another championship. They don t look human now. They look like a machine. U p 3-1 and shooting the ball at a level never seen in the NBA Finals, the Spurs headed home with a chance to wr ap things up on Sunday night in Game 5. The Miami Heat, who were able to deny the Spurs last year, had two days to gure out what can possibly be done to do it again. Theyre a highoil machine and they move the ball ex tremely well, LeBron J ames said. They put you in so many difcult positions. If youre not r ight on time right on target, theyre going to make you pay for it. The S purs won by 19 and 21 in the two games in Miami and are shooting 54.2 per cent in the series. The NBA F inals r ecord for a series of any length is 52.7 per cent. N o team has over come a 3-1 decit in the nals and the Heat were so thor oughly manhandled in M iami that the only reason to think they could be the rst is what they did in the past. Duncan said the memory of last sea sons loss the pain that s driven the Spurs through this entire season would denitely come up before S unday As I said, we know the caliber team they are, and we have a lot of respect for what theyre able to do, Duncan said. Theyre able to throw it an other gear and theyre going to do just that. They don t want this to be done. Duncan probably meant done as in the series. Of course, it could also mean the era. Two off days were sure to be lled by talk of the Heats uncertain future, with James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh all eligible for free agency. Might such a onesided beating con vince James he had to leav e to nd a better roster elsewhere? Make him more res olute in his desire to stay and get the H eat back on top? The two-time champions have more ur gent concerns now. D id we expect to come here and lose two the way we did at home? No way, Wade said. But we also expect to go to San Antonio and put up a better effort and try to come out with another win. S o well get away from it (Friday), but well still think about what we need to do to try to get another win to keep the series alive. James simply acknowledged the obvious, that the Spurs w er e the better team, when they swept his Cleveland Cavaliers in 2007 for the last of their four NBA championships. B ut he wasn t supposed to be on the wr ong side of the talent differ ential once he bolted for M iami, where the Heat would build a Big Three for this decade that would rival what San Antonios did last decade.

www.newssun.comSunday, June 15, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | A11 Cox taking seventh and Rowan Moulds 23rd. Back to the ear ly segment of the day, Lawson M cLeod of Lutz won the boys 10s in a blistering 16:23, just 11 seconds ahead of Largos William Stone. For the girls of that age group, Court ney Diemar lead the eld in 17:27, with S ebr ings Kassidy Caputo taking 9th in 20:28 and Lake P lacids Madison Kinchen getting 16th in 22:48. Kinsley White of Sebring won the girls 9s in 18:34, with A v on Parks Katelyn Van Rooyen taking fourth in 21:26. On the boys side of the 9s, Colin Kruger of Trinity won the closest race of the day, edg ing Minneolas Colton C ar dwell by a mere four seconds and Sebrings Bud Cox by v e. Other locals in the age group for the boys were Zacharay van Fleet (6th), Reeve Moulds (9th), Luke Swain (10th), Kaden Roberts (15th), Park er Kampman (18th), J acob B aucom (19th) and David Stephens (20th). Ryann McLeod won the girls 8s, with Sebrings Hannah Andrews taking eighth, and J ack D iemar won the boys side, with Lake Placids Kaleb Zahller getting 10th, Loridas Joel Smith 11th, Avon Parks Hunter van Rooy en 12th and Sebrings G eor ge Leidel 16th. Reese McClellan of Reddington Beach won the girls 7s and Turner Glenn of Fleming Island won the bo ys while Mika Lonsdale of Lake Placid was second, C ale D elaney of Sebring fth, B r ooker Revell of Sebring seventh, Lincoln K ampman of S ebring ninth and Nolan Stephens of Sebring 10th. And the y oungest of competitors saw Or landos Connie Cur ti win the girls 6s, with S tuar ts Madison Heath in second, while B lake H uff of Lithia win the boys. It was a very quick process, Barnes said. Weve played in a couple tournaments and hav e held our o wn in each of them. Right now were a bunch of girls playing softball, but theres a lot of talent and once they become a team, we will be a team to be r eckoned with. R anging in age fr om 13-18, Barnes sees this as a valuable asset to have for Highlands County softball players moving forward. This is our rst showcase, so they can get a feel for what its like, she said. Its to tally different than high school or city league. Hopefully by next summer we will be a true sho w case team. The difference being the level and intensity of competition, along with the exposure such big tournaments bring, as evidenced by the many college coaches on hand to scout play ers. And while B ar nes is the founder and organizer of it, she cant actually coach the team because of her position at S outh Florida, so those duties go to Avon Park head coach Brittany Spencer. And the squad sur e looked much better than a team formed less than a month ear lier in their opener Friday, topping the Lady P anthers of C ape Cor al 7-0. They star ted quickly with Hali Bohannon of Lake Wales leading off the top of the rst with a double and moving to second on Gobournes single. A C oe gr ound out brought Bohannon in and Gobourne scored on a grounder from starting pitcher Kalissa Sexton of Bartow. Sexton then took to the mound and worked around a one-out sin gle in the rst, the only hit she would surr ender in the contest. The Owls tacked on two mor e in the second when Rivera drew a lead-off walk and scor ed on Antones triple. G ilber t then beat out an ineld single to plate Antone for a 4-0 lead. Bohannon would score again in the fourth on a Gobourne double, before the Owls closed out their scoring in the fth. Perry singled to start it and moved to second before Gilberts single brought her in. Gilbert would then score the nal run of the contest when Seda tol belted a double. W ith the clouds that would douse the area with torrential rains moving in, the Owls got out to an early lead in their next game too, against the Blue Run Bullets out of Dunnel lon. W e were winning 2-1 with two outs and they took us off the eld because of lightning three times in a four -minute span, Barnes said. Then it started downpouring and we made a couple wet-ball errors and gav e up two r uns. Then they scored twice and they called the game. But not at all a bad start for the newfound Owls, who were back in action with two games Saturday night and close out their week end with games today against the B ar tow Intimidators at 8:30 / a.m. and the W olfpack at 10 / a.m. Dan Hoehne/News-SunOther local girls showed up in the Showcase as Jade Sinness races around second on her triple for the Shockers 16-under team. Dan Hoehne/News-SunEmily Bible readies for the pitch from her second-base perch for the Shockers 16-under team in Fridays opening round of the Shocker Summer Showcase. OWLS FR oO M PAG eE A A 9has done no worse than battled James to a draw over the last two games. Or Boris Diaw, who wasnt even in the starting lineup until Game 3 and had eight points, nine rebounds and nine assists in Game 4, serving as one of the catalysts for the Spurs mesmerizing ball movement. Individual players get hot all the time. The Spurs are on a team-wide hot streak. I just think were playing Spurs bas ketball, Parker said. W ere just moving the ball and were just play ing the way weve been playing all season. W ed like to do a good to great, the extra pass, and we preach that, and right now were clicking. It gets a little hard er to keep that going when tr ying for that fourth win, the one the Spurs couldnt quite get last year, when even the real freewheeling teams tend to tighten up a bit. I mean, every close out game is very difcult, for all the obvious r easons , Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. Especially if James delivers as so often when the Heat faced elimination, from his 45-point game in Boston in the 2012 Eastern C onfer ence nals, to a triple-double against the Spurs in Game 6 last year, followed by 37 points in Game 7. He may need to de liver something similar, or a championship r eign could be o ver sooner than expected.Follow Brian Mahoney on Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/Briancmahoney HEAT FR oO M PAG eE A A 9 Dan Hoehne/News-SunThe transition stage between the swim and bike ride can get a little congested at times, as this group found out Saturday.

LIVING B Sunday, June 15, 2014 Smarter Green LivingSimple tips that can lessen your familys carbon footprint: %  Save W ater, Change the World: In just one year, the average family could save nearly 5,000 gallons of water and up to $150 by shortening shower time by just two minutes. The Suave Turn-Off-the-Tap program encourages everyone to also turn off the water while shampooing and condition ing, which can save an additional 3,000 gallons of water per year. %  One Tote Bag Can Mak e a Big Impact: Carrying a tote bag to avoid the use of plastic grocery store bags while out and about can make a big difference. Less than ve percent of plastic bags are recycled in the U.S. thats up to 95 billion bags in the trash system, where decomposition can take hundreds of years. %  Love Y our Leftovers: No one wants to eat the same thing over and over, which is why its time to get creative. Its possible to transform your leftovers into a delicious new meal, cut down on waste and save money. For a leftover makeover, check out: http://ulever.us/leftovers. Just because school is out, doesnt mean learning has to stop. The sum mer months are a great oppor tu nity for families to spend time togeth er and see rsthand that small actions to live more sustainably can tog et her make a big impact on the future a concept that echoes the mis sion of Unilever Project Sunlight. The company behind many of the food, h o me and per so nal care products many people use every day launched Project Sunlight in 2013 to help make sustainable living commonplace. Get your family in on the action and encourage others to adopt sustainable habits at home by trying one of the below Summer Sunlight Activities: Go Green in Your BathroomNearly 40 percent of Americans toss plastic bottles from the bathroom in the trash, not realizing that along with cardboard product packaging and toilet paper spools many bathr oom toiletry bottles including Dove and Suave shampoos and body washes are recyclable. One Ingredient, Five WaysEach year the world produces about 1,477 pounds of edible food for every person on the planet, but only about half of that is ever eaten. Empower the kids of the household to plan a menu for the week by thinking up ve meals with one main ingre dient, and teach the entir e family that simple ingredients can go a long way. Challenge your children to get creative with their menu planning there are plenty of recipes to choose from on www.knorr.com or www.hellmanns.com for inspiration. Transform Shampoo Bottles into Decorative CaddiesIts important to green your bathroom and recycle plastic bottles whenever possible, but theres also some fun up-cy cling you can do to make use of empty plastic bottles. Turn your empty S uav e or Dove bottle into a handy caddy for every thing from keys to mobile phones a craft thats perfect for kids to create for everyone in the house. Be Your Own Farmers MarketGrowing your own vegetables, fruits and herbs is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint and positively impact the environment. Add some fresh avor to your next family dinner by up-cycling empty con tainers like H ellmanns mayonnaise jars to create a garden of your favorite herbs and vegetables. T eaching the next generation to live sustainably is essential to ensuring our children and our childrens children thrive in a world with clean water and food on the table, said Sarah Michelle Gellar, Unilever Project Sunlight Ambassador, actress and mother. Whether its challenging their creativity to reimagine the use of a box, turning off the faucet while they brush their teeth or growing a summer garden, we can build a world where everyone lives well if we all do our part. Go Green in Your Bathroom WHAT YOULL NEED: WHAT TO DD O :Step 1: Cut off aps of box and set aside for later use. Step 2: Measure paper needed to cover large sides and bottom of box and add two inches on each side; do same for small sides and bottom of box. Step 3: Choose side to start working on rst (large or small side), and spray adhesive on re spective paper. Step 4: Place one side of box onto spra yed paper leaving two inches on each side and top. Lay bottom and then last side, then fold two inches of extra paper into box neatly and se cure with adhesive. Repeat same steps to cover other sides. Step 5: T ake both longer aps and place them side by side (on long side). Cut enough gift wrap to cover one side leaving 1 inches on each of four sides. Spray paper with adhesive and place two pieces in center; fold over four sides and secure with tape. Dont worry about exposed cardboard, which wont be seen. Step 6: Line your bin with trash bag and place wrapped longer aps at bottom of bin (pretty side up). Step 7: Take both shorter aps and place one atop of other using longer side and mend the two together with packing tape to tightly se cure.

B2 | NEWSSS U nN | SS unday, June 15, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: I have an attractive friend who was bypassed for a front-ofce promotion. Miranda is pleasant, clean, efcient, energetic and had the same qualications as the individual who was promoted. A management team member conded that the reason for M ir andas lack of advancement might be due to the numer ous tattoos difcult to cover on her ar ms and wr ists, which the manager said isnt the image the business wants to convey. Is this discrimination? I think its unfair because Miranda is a good wor ker She keeps asking me if I have any ideas why she was bypassed. Should I tell her? I dont want to violate the managers faith in my condenti ality, even though I will be r etir ing soon. LOYAL FRIEND IN MASSACHUSETTSDEAR LOYAL FRIEND: Your friends obvious tattoos prevent her from presenting the corporate image your employer pr efers be conv eyed to clients who visit the front ofce. To my kno wledge people with tattoos are not members of a pr otected class which would put an emplo y er at risk for a discrimination suit. Because Miranda continues to ask why she wasnt promoted, and you have nothing to lose by telling her what you were told, I think you should lev el with her. She might pr efer to wor k at a company where her chances for advancement arent stymied. DEAR ABBY : I hav e two children who are not yet old enough for school. My motherin-law watches them for free a few times a week. She has been trying to quit smok ing for the last couple of y ears Nine out of 10 times when I take my children to her, she asks me to br ing her a pack of cigarettes. I feel obligated to do it because she watches my children for free. I kno w I m not doing her any favors, and I hav e asked others how I should handle this. They say I should make excuses like, I dont have any money with me, or, I forgot to get them. I gure theres only a few more years before she wont have to watch my kids, so after that, Ill never feel obligated to bring her smokes again. Any advice? SMOKED OUT IN WISCONSINDEAR SMOKED OUT: Yes. When you are done reading this, go online and see what the American Cancer Society and the Amer ican Lung Association hav e to say about the effects of secondhand smoke on children. Then, rather than lie to your mother-in-law, the next time she asks you to bring her a pack when you drop off the kids, summon the courage to tell her no because it isnt healthy for your children. DEAR READERS: I would like to wish a Happy Fathers Day to fathers everywhere birth fathers, step fathers, adoptive and foster fathers gr andfathers, and all of those car ing men who mentor childr en and ll the r ole of absent fathers LOVE, ABBYContact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

You would rather be out hav ing fun, but putting off chores now will only lead to more work down the road.

LEO Leo, serve as a diplomat this week, plac ing yourself in the middle want to help. Keep a level head and dont get swept into the argument. VIRGO Virgo, your ability to focus is very strong, but this week you cannot seem to get your mind to cooperate. You may have a million things to think about. LIBRA You are tempted to join the party this week, even though you know it is probably a bet ter idea to decline. But the prospect of socializing and having a good time is too tempting. SCORPIO Scorpio, you often feel uncom fortable when you have too many loose ends. It may take quite a while this week to wrap up all of your obligations before you can relax. SAGITTARIUS Sagit tarius, the more you pon der the decisions you have to make, the more you struggle to determine a positive outcome. Give yourself some breathing room.

A legacy is dened as anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor. In light of the legacy both your grandfather and father created for us and the legacy that is ours as a result of your love and care for us, we want to express our apprecia tion to you. I asked the kids gr andkids, and even great-grandson to write a few words. What follows goes back two generations. Your own words about your father and grandfather which were written to the historical society: My father, Wood row Harshman, was a v er y generous man to many...including his children, other family members and friends. I still hear of instances of where he helped someone out in some way He was very private about it all. I understand that when my pater nal gr andfather died someone made the remark, There goes the last of the poor mans friends. It seemed my Dad deter mined to prove that his D ad was not going to be the last of the poor mans friends... As a Dad, he was everything a guy would ev er want in a D ad. He was always there for all of us. He followed our interests and became involved where w e had inter ests. As a young husband and father, my wife and I became involved in the things of the Lor d J esus. We were involved in chur ch and home Bible Studies, confer ences and camps with our childr en; he was always ther e giving us mor al suppor t and encouraging us. From my perspectiv e my Dad was almost bigger than life. One day I went into his ofce and told him I had something I wanted to run by him for feedback. I told him he was leaving an aw ful big set of tracks, and I hope he didn t mind if I didnt try to ll them, because I knew I couldnt. So I deter mined that I would just make my o wn set of tracks and hoped he understood. He teared up and laughed, and said, Anything you do will be alright with me, and I love you just the way you are. Thats my Dad. WaltMissieMissie, your oldest daughter writes: M y Dad is the rock in my life; he is the man I can count on. Ive always known that he would be ther e for us. When growing up it never crossed my mind that he may...choose to leave. I just knew that I could depend on him to always be there. He is funny and witty...he can even laugh at him self. Hes very tender hearted; its obvious if you touch the ar eas of his heart that he is most passionate about. When he says something, you can count on it to be the complete truth. I like to use one wor d sometimes to see if I can describe people. The word for my Dad would be trust. You can trust him being available, you can tr ust him telling y ou the truth, you can trust in him being completely dependable, you can ev en tr ust him in his humorous moments; you can trust in his character always. Yes, trust is my Dads descriptive word. I love y ou, Thanks . MissieGreggGregg, our oldest son, writes: Milkshakes and Key Learnings with Dad: Challenge to drink every drop of a 64 oz. or maybe 44 oz. butterscotch milk shakereward the cash pr ice of the shake and no need to stop playing for dinner! ... Never spill diesel fuel on your clothes..especially on the lower regionsunless you enjoy a good re dance!... Letting us hav e dir t bikes priceless! ... Unlimited license to kill snakes pr iceless! ... There should be many rewards in heaven for Dad for sitting through little league baseball games! Dropped off in a wilderness of 72 acres of grove, sun and coachwhip snakes. I could always count on Dad to rescue me sev eral times a day with huge S pr ite and good food!! ... View from the roof of the school not worth it! Going to jail might have been better. ... Always knew D ad would be ther e if I needed him!! Dad loved me through it alland still does!!! Love, Gregg.TroyTroy, our youngest son, writes: Fathers Day: Despite his sometimes hard exterior he has a v er y soft heart. I see it in the way he is quick to forgive me for my shortcomings. He has been a shining example to me of ho w to tr eat a woman by watching the loving and caring respect he giv es my M om. I want to be like Dad, and that says a lot right there. Honest like him, loyal like him and a good steward of what God has given me like him. More than any thing, Dad, I want you to be pr oud of me for what I have been able to accomplish; and I want to be a good father to my children as y ou hav e been to me. You have done great things for me, and I will never forget them. You have been a great spir itual leader and mentor, land I will always lo v e you and thank you. Have a blessed Fathers Day and know that I will nev er for get that y ou chose me and r aised me like y our own. Love, TroyHeatherHeather, our youngest daughter, writes: H appy Fathers Day to the neatest Dad ever! ..being adopted is the greatest assurance that God has us right in the family of His choos ing. In thinking of segments of my life: In the gr o wing up years you were funny, kind and helped us learn to toe the line. We learned about completing long, boring and redun dant jobs. We learned to go to chur ch ev en when we didnt feel like it. We learned to sit in the family room and work out our differences because running from problems and people in life is r eally not an option. I watched and lear ned what real love and care in a marriage was all about as I grew older. To this day, the bar is set very high. Thanks for loving me so much that I never needed a man to be my life, but can look for a man that can complete my life. As I grew older you were also the protect ing championYou w er e always engaged in our lives grandkids, rides, milkshakes. The kids say y ou ar e a cool Papa.,.You have walked steadily by my side. Thank you for loving me; you are Gods blessing to me Thank you for loving me so completely and for hanging in there with me. I love you. Heath er I close with my thoughts: F irst and foremost I value your supreme love for the Lord Jesus Christ. You have great integrity; you are honorable and very truthful even to a fault. I dont ever recall a lie you told me or any one else for that matter. (I think your Dad took care of that as it erupted one time in your childhood years!!). One man re marked once that you w er e the most truthful man he has known. Y ou hav e no guile. You have remained faithful; you keep your word. Our house was built on a handshake. You are very generous and compassionate. You are a devoted husband and father. I recall the day you came home from work and told me you had had a conversation with your Dad. You had gone into his ofce and told him he was mak ing an awful big set of tr acks And, if he didnt mind, could you make your own set of tracks. He laughed, and with a tear in his eye, he said he wouldnt want you to do any other than to make your own set of tracks. Well, beloved, your tracks are mighty big also, and we are very thankful for you. We love you very much. With all my love and respect, your devoted wife, Bobbie Proverbs 17:6 says, Childrens children are the crown of old men; and the glory of chil dren are their fathers.

Our church family would load up in the early morning hours in buses and cars for the several hour trip to this moun tain hideaway. The unmistakable sights and sounds of the wooded area with the pretty lake shimmering in the sun beckoned us to have a funlled day I f Dad didnt have to work, wed drive there as a family. But, sometimes his duties at Maxwell House required his presence at wor k. Though disappointed, wed drum up enthusiasm and r ide the bus with our friends. Mom and my aunts would unpack the unbelievable spread of food they br ought. I t was a real Italian feast along with the typical picnic fare. Our friends loved to share our picnic table! B ut, without D ad, we felt a little lost. Sometimes, if he didnt have to work too many hours, hed meet us there later in the day. When he arrived, I felt we were complete, at last. Our guardian was present and all was right with my world. Even the look on Moms face said the same. All dads are to be guardians of their fam ilies. I t is most unfor tunate that in our society men have not been held in high r egar d over the last several decades. Theyve been bashed and made to look like fools in some T.V. sitcoms and this has translated to reality. Gone are the days of F ather Knows Best. Likewise, it is also a shame that some men have abandoned their post as watchmen over their families or taken advantage of them. We may try to delude ourselves into thinking it doesnt matter. B ut it does Womens and mens roles are designed and dened by G od and his ways ar e always best. Though not perfect in this fallen world, the family has always been the bedrock of our cultur e Following the advice of Proverbs is a good place to begin. For example, Proverbs 1:7a and 8, NKJV says The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledgeMy son, hear the instr uction of y our father, and do not forsake the law of y our mother . This indicates an active role by Dad. This F ather s Day, commit or recommit to being the strong guardians God intended. Guide, protect, provide and love sacr icially Your sons and daughters will aspire to emulate you and be G od s sons and daughters as well. SelahJan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.Guardian of the family P auseAUSE & C onsiderONSIDER Jan Merop The Associated PressAn al-Qaida breakaway group, apparently backed by other Sunni groups and ghters, has seiz ed a lar ge section of northern Iraq after pr eviously taking much of nor theastern Syria with an eye to war d establishing an Islamic state straddling the two countries. The situation on the ground is changing rapidly, but some pat terns and explanations ar e no w emerging:Q: Why is this happening now?A: The group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Lev ant, is taking adv antage of two tr ends: gr owing discontent among Iraqs minor ity S unnis toward Prime Minister N our i al-Malikis Shiite-led government, which they accuse of discr imination; and the increasingly sectarian dimension of the Syr ian civil war, as mostly Sunni rebels ght to oust a r egime dominated b y members of a S hiite sect. Taking advantage of the breakdown of state authority, militant ghters easily cross the border. The I r aqi territory recently seized by militants is populated o v erwhelmingly by Sunnis, many of whom, at least for no w, may see al-Maliki as more of a threat than the I slamic S tate. Signs are also emerging that the Islamic State is backed in its cur rent campaign by for mer military ofcers and other members of ousted dictator S addam Husseins regime.Q: Will II raq be a d ivided state?A: The recent developments have renewed the possibility much discussed during the war a decade ago, that Iraq be divided into three separate regions or even nations the mostly Shiite sec tion, made up of Baghdad and much of the south and east bor der ing I ran; a Sunni area, compr ised of w estern Iraq and parts of the north; and a Kurdish zone, also in the north and including the cities of Irbil and Kirkuk, which S addam tr ied to populate with Arabs.Q: What happened to the II ra qi security forces? A: Corruption and sectarianism are widespread problems in the secur ity for ces, with little sense of professionalism or loyalty to the B aghdad go vernment. Sunni soldiers tend to serve in Sunni areas like Mosul and Anbar, where many of them are demoralized by the idea of ghting against members of their own Muslim sect. Po lice forces are usually dr awn fr om local populations so are particularly vulnerable to local pr essur es like intimidation. In at least one case the I slamic militants beheaded an ofcer and then distributed a video of the attack.Q: How have the rebels been able to move so quickly?A: The Islamic State commands between 7,000 and 10,000 ghters, according to U.S. intelligence ofcials The groups military strategy is still somewhat of a mystery, but the extr emists hav e cunningly crafted their tactics and message to meet local consider ations. I n S yria, they are quite open about their ideology and goals, imposing their strict brand of Islamic law, banning music and ex ecuting people in the main squar e of the city of Raqqa, which they control. In Iraq, they focus on portray ing themselves as the pr otectors of the S unni community from alM aliki s government and have at least so far overlooked some practices they consider for bidden.Q: What is II ra ns position?A: Irans president has blasted the Islamic State as barbaric, and its foreign minister offered his countrys support to Iraq in its ght against terr or ism. Iran has halted ights to Baghdad and is beeng up border security. As a Shiite country, Iran shares an afni ty with the current governments of Iraq and S yr ia.Whats going on in Iraq and why? .........................................................................
