I wanted to propose in a unique way, Tim Langston said. He and his wife, Jennifer, had been dating for six months they met on July 4, 1991. Now married 22 years, they have three boys: Tyler, 18; Chase, 16, and Bryce, 14. Tim Langston works for Highlands County Emergency Medical Services, Jennifer Langston is a guidance counselor at Avon Park High School and they have split up housework in teamwork fashion. Today marks their 22nd wedding anniversary. They plan on going to a nephews wedding tomorrow on Little Gasparilla Island. The proposal almost didnt take place. It was a comedy of errors, Jennifer Langston said. With a chuckle, Tim Langston recalled how he had climbed the citys 110foot water tower several times when he was younger. The city didnt like young people doing that, he said. Courtesy photosJennifer and Tim Langston take a wedding photo on July 25, 1992, by the sign that started it six months before the big day, hanging from the city water tower in Avon Park.

We have come a long way, but we still have a long way to go, said Champion for Children Foundation CEO Kevin Roberts. He described the inaugural year of operation as a roller coaster, with a wide array of different events at the facility ranging from weddings, banquets and meetings to a series of movies, plays and public speakers lling the historic site. There has been a lot of exhilaration and a lot of excitement, but there also has been a learning curve, he said. There also has been a challenge in getting the word out about the theater and how it can be used. One of the bigger hurdles came midway through the year when the theaters rst manager, Brenda Heston, left the key position. She got married and got a new direction in life, Roberts explained.Opened a year agoSEE MARRY | A3 Coyotes spotted in Lake Haven EstatesFWC o cials advise awareness, education MCTCoyotes like this one, which was trapped near Orlando, have become more common in urban areas, and have been spotted near Lake Huckleberry in Sebring.Circle Theatre comes full circle Kirsten Scarborough/News-Sun/The Champion for Children Foundations Circle Theatre opened a year ago at 202 Circle Park Drive. BY LARRY GRIFFINStaff WriterAVON PARK The long-standing Adult High School (AHS) program was of cially discontinued at a Board of Trustees meeting Wednesday evening at South Florida State Colleges Highlands Campus. But fear not seeking adult education in Avon Park is actually becoming easier and more ef cient. In the past, dropouts or adults who never received degrees could come to SFSC and use the AHS program to take classes and receive a high school degree. Most students who used the program were between 16 and 18. Since one can legally drop out of the public education system at 16, many would drop out of the public school system and come to the Adult High School program instead, where they would take high school classes on the SFSC campus, taught by actual high school Adult education program improving at South FloridaCollege ended Adult High School program Wednesday nightSEE ADULT | A6SEE CIRCLE | A6SEE COYOTES | A6

Keith Anthony Drake, 23, of 2121 Melady Ave. in Sebring also allegedly threatened to harm the ofcer the next time he visits the Sebring area full-service restaurant where Drake works. Drake has been charged with assault on an ofcer and resisting an ofcer without vio lence in an incident that occurr ed at 7:11 / p.m. when the ofcer arrived at 2119 Melady Ave. to investigate a trespass ing complaint.

It was a covert mis sion, Jennifer Langston recalls: He was w earing all dark cloth ing that night for some r eason. Once he got it at tached to the railing, he had to get her to look at it, which was easier said than done They had gone to church that morn ing in separate cars. T im Langston had the ring in his car, but she wanted to drive her car to meet their parents for lunch. None of parents were in on it, he said, so they were waiting on them. First, Tim Langston came up with a sto ry about checking the computers at NAP A Auto Parts, his fami lys business, to get her do wntown. The water tow er, since dismantled, stood behind the J ahna Concrete plant near the railroad crossings on Main Street. It was in plain view of Muse um Avenue, but since she was dr iving, he had to trick her into stop ping there. Then, as she ap proached Museum Avenue, she passed another motorist and missed the tur n. He said, You messed it up. Turn around, Jennifer Langston said. Once he got her to Museum Avenue, he pretended she had car trouble, and had to coax her out of the car to look up at the wa ter tower while he got on his knees and pr o posed. The pr oposal became a part of local histo ry when young NewsS un reporter Romona Washington snapped a photo of the ban ner that same day and wonder ed in the news paper cutline what Jennifers answer was. N ot only did Jenni fer say yes, she became J ennifer Langston less than six months lat er on July 25, 1992. She was 22; he was 29. They even had the banner displayed at the wed ding, she said. Her father, Pastor S.C. Couch of F aith Christian Church insisted on it. Getting the banner down from the tow er was more of a challenge than hanging it, Tim Langston said: The wind caught it and snagged it on the crossbars. When he went to NAPA to get materials for a pole to help dis entangle it, police were called because the stor e was supposed to be closed that day and someone thought he was a burglar, Jennifer Langston said. Now more than two decades later, they still pull it out for special occasions, especially anniversaries. When the city dis mantled the tower, they also got a piece of it Tim Langs tons sister is married into the J ahna family. A 1-foot-by-2-foot slab of the metal tank al most half an inch thick inscr ibed with The Langstons and their wedding date, stands on the mantlepiece in their home. When asked why the piece wasnt any larger, Tim Langston said the steel was so thick, they couldnt have lifted it otherwise. MARRY FROM PAGE A A 1 Phil Attinger/News-SunNow, 22 years later, Jennifer and Tim Langston have a unique souvenir of a marriage proposal that got written into local history when Tim hung it from the Avon Park water tower. Jennifer jokes that their in-laws, the Jahnas, suggested they buy the water tower when it was dismantled a few years ago and construct it in their yard. Instead, they were happy to just have a small piece of the tower displayed in their living room. Phil Attinger/News-SunA 1 foot wide by 2 foot long sheet of metal declares when the Langstons were married. Its a piece of the Avon Park water tower after the city tore it down, the same tower from which Tim Langston hung a banner asking Jennifer Couch, now Jennifer Langston, to marry him.

Education? Transportation? Tax poli cy? Governance? When that question was put to S tate Rep. Ben Albritton recently at a Tiger Bay Club meeting in Bartow, he quickly answered: Water. At rst blush, it doesnt sound like an exciting topic. Water doesnt prepare todays young people for success in the workplace. Water has an insignicant impact on transportation within the state. Water, selling for pennies a gallon (unless you insist on the bottled stuff) doesnt rep resent much potential as a tax source. And water doesn t offer a political ad vantage; there is no such thing as Dem ocratic or Republican water, liberal or conser vative water. As long as clear, potable water comes out of the spigot every time we turn the faucet, we dont give it much thought. But water, more than any other re source, places limits on everything fr om residential development to agri culture to industry. And as difcult as it may be to gr asp, it is not an inexhaust ible resource. Ask long-time P olk Countians to name their favorite recreation venues of the 1950s and earlier, and the odds are great that Kissengen Spring will be at or near the top of the list. The spring, located between Bartow and Fort Meade, was the most popular not to mention the coldest swim ming hole in the southern end of Polk C ounty. But in the 1950s, Kissengen Spring went dry. It was commonly believed at the time that the underground river feeding the spring was cut by phosphate mining. Instead, scientists are more likely to look at the disappearance of Kissengen Spring, and other less well known wa tering spots, as the result of a falling wa ter table. The blame is shared by heavy industr y (mainly phosphate mining), agriculture, and residential develop ment. S o what to do to ensure an adequate supply for future generations? Albritton is quick to admit that he doesnt have an answer. But he pro poses that the Legislature assemble a body of exper ts who are smarter than your average legislator to recommend a comprehensive water policy. He be lieves that the House leadership in 2015 will make this a major pr iority. We hope he is correct. Developing water policy that will solve long-term problems will require not only a lot of smart people, but a will ingness for each major water consump tion group to compromise. It will not be easy ; indeed, it will barely be possible. But we share Albrittons belief that it is the most important issue Florida must resolve.Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.com J oO I nN T heHE CO nveN VE RS atA T I onO N Letters to the editor should be 250 words or less.

I understand why Peter Pan didnt want to gr ow up; he didnt want to become a victim of adolescents nor another mime in the order of so ciety, he didnt want to get a job or mo ve out. What Peter wanted was to stay back and not worry about what lies ahead lose foot and fancy free...forever. I get that, and good for Pete. But guess what? Hes ction. If I could just stay young forever, sounds like the far-fetched notion Ponce de Leon thrived on. It just doesnt work like that, and as far as I know science hasnt g ured out a way to preserve youth yet. Funny, because on the ip side there are plenty people who are just longing to get out of their Pampers and jump into their big girl/boy pants. And for each situa tion, do you know what I hav e to say? Deal with it, because every small, frustrating detail of life is precious. There is beauty in being young; there is beauty in being old; as there is a down side to both. Its natural to want to just get out there and do what you want to do, live your life. I have yet to meet a person my age that hasnt had thoughts like that, be cause honestly I have those moments ev ery once in a while. But why make haste toward the future if you are unable to enjoy the present? And for those who wish they were in their youth and had no worries, I say the same to you. Whether you are a wary parent, an ail ing being, or an in-debt consumer ther e is a time when the parent will become proud, the being will be in peace and the consumer will be free of his worldly burdens, so accept your circumstance. Im not really there yet, and soon I will know what all the things grown-ups do, right now I can see this entire adult perspective from a vicarious point of view, but I surely know in youth we learn; with age we under stand, as put by Marie v on Ebner-Eschenbach. In truth, you will nev er be younger than you are right now. While we long for goals that we cannot reach, set those that you can. The most important objective is to reect on your life and make the best of what you have now.Gauri Persad is a Sebring High School student. The News-Sun encourages stu dents to express their opin ions, which are those of the writer and not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff.Make the best of what you have now GUEST COLUMNGauri Persad Be careful what you wish forThere have been several calls lately to impeach President Obama. There is also a move on to sue him. Speaker John Boehner wants to sue the ip pant man for his running roughshod over the C onstitution with his executive orders. Its about time someone ran with the ball to stop the ve-year run-away train. Obamas famous com ment at the last State of the U nion address, I have the pen and the phone and I will do it without Congress, shows how arrogant the man is. Obamacare was passed by Congress as law. After a lot of hue and cry from different groups about some of the law, Obama simply amended those parts that werent working with his executive pow ers. Folks, those of you that r emember your eighth-grade civics class know the President has only two options when a bill is sent to his desk: (1) sign it into law or (2) veto it, make chang es on a legal pad and send it back to C ongress to be reworked before he signs it in to law. He cannot change it. This guy simply does as he pleases with the advise of his senior ad visor Valerie Jarrett. She is r eally the power be hind the throne. Impeachment is for treason or criminal acts. Obama is simply a poor executive and impeach ing him gets us Joe B iden as his replace ment. B ob Gates, former De fense Secretary, referred to B iden as the joke of Washington. Be careful what you wish for.HAL GRAVESSebringNot voting for CristAn open letter to Charlie Crist: Im a lifelong Demo crat, which you are not. What a gr ave tactical er ror youve just committed! You have lost two v otes, and hopefully the election, by your actions supporting the invasion on our Southern border. If you became gover nor there is no doubt y ou would welcome the invaders to Florida. We have enough crime, homeless, drug ad dicts and disease here in F lorida without add ing thousands more to the w elfare lists and prison system. Havent you seen those people in other states holding signs, stopping busses loaded with the invad ers? They dont want them and neither do we. Those children have parents, and its their re sponsibility to support them, not ours We have a system for those who wish to enter the United States legal ly; my father did it when he came her e from Eng land in the early 1900s, when the inv aders get older then they too can legally apply, but while back in their own coun tries, not after they have cr ossed our borders. The National Guard should have been called up months ago to stop this plague of unwant ed children and others cr ossing our borders. How many thousands have already gotten in without being appre hended? We will never know. Unfortunately, most of the money these illegals ear n is sent back to their home countries, not spent here, and you can be sure no taxes will be paid. I will never vote for a Republican, but I could not and will not support your actions by voting for you.

Over the years, though, interest in the program waned and it morphed into some thing more akin to dual enr ollment taking college class es in order to receive a high school diploma, which could have been done the exact same way while still enrolled in a regular public high school. The reason for the dip in attendance was that the program was not exible the adults who needed the program werent available to take class es during the 8 / a.m. to 3 / p.m. schedule the AHS program worked within so rigidly. Be cause of this, the only ones utilizing the pr o gram were high school dr opouts and former ly home-schooled students looking to fur ther their education. Needs change, peo ple change and times change , said SFSC Chief Information Of cer Chris VanderKaay. Working adults couldnt be here from 8 to 3 every day. Interest was low, with only about 10 stu dents using the program on average in its nal y ears. Financial ly, SFSC could no longer justify paying for the high school teach ers to continue coming to campus and so the AHS program was ter minated as of Wednesday evening. R eplacing the AHS program is the Adult Basic Education (ABE) program, which op erates in a more nuanced and exible manner Students will rst take an exam called the Test for Adult Basic Educa tion (TABE), which will gauge their skills at reading, math and language to nd out where remediation is needed. Some students will only need remedia tion in one subject and some will not need any remediation if they score high enough on every subject these students can move di rectly onto the GED test, with no A dult Ba sic Education classes needed. S ome adults need more extensive help with basic literacy, which VanderKaay said was a need in the Avon Park community. We had people call ing and coming in, saying they had a har d time reading, he said. The age range for the ABE program is much wider than the AHS program was drawing, with stu dents anywhere between the ages of 16 and 70. A big plus for many adults was the heightened exibili ty under the ABE program as compared to its predecessor now, classes are offered at differing times (eve ning classes are available as well as vary ing three-hour block times dur ing the day) and different locations in Lake Placid, Bowl ing Green and Sebring, for students unable to commute to the SFSC Highlands campus. The last full report ing year yielded enrollment numbers showing strong interest in each pr ogram, with 510 students utilizing the ABE program, 90 working on their GEDs and 189 in the ESOL program, which helps students who do not speak English as a rst language obtain fur ther education. These students have had challeng es, VanderKaay said. They come to us for another chance at ed ucation. at 863-385-6155, Ext.

The pair since has worked to provide the citizen ry with a place to stage all manner of activi ties. They also have initiated a unique afterschool pr ogram. Over the past year, there have been sever al capacity and nearcapacity cr owds. Early on, the Highlands Tea Party brought in Den nis Michael Lynch, who spoke on the pr oblem of illegal immigration. He will be coming back for a repeat perfor mance on Aug. 20. We also have had a big chamber mixer here, there was a huge New Years Eve gath ering, several of our concer ts, weddings, graduation events and retirement parties have had capacity crowds, he said. We even had our 20th anniversary of the Champion for Chil dren Award here. M ore recently, the Ju nior Achievement program held a banquet at the facility What does the future hold? Among other things, Roberts hinted at the possibility of a vintage movie se ries to draw seniors. The exibility of the venue has been one of the more surpris ing features, with Roberts saying he has been shocked at how dif ferent groups have been able to change the appearance of the threatre simply be the use of the differing decorations and colors they have chosen. The plays that Sim ple Acts United have staged hav e been really special, he said. Roberts said one of the most rewarding features of the refur bished building has been the success of The Sweet Shop. Once opened just for special events, it now has been operating on a more regular basis with an expanded menu. We have some vol unteers and paid employees from AARP and H eartland Career Con nections so we have been able to go longer hours, said Roberts. It has far exceeded our expectations. Although the theater has been fully opera tional for a year, it has been a pr oject that has consumed well over 36 months, with the Chil drens Services Foundation rst acquiring then r efurbishing a fa cility that dates back to 1923. There still are a lot of creaks and moans in this 10,000-squarefoot building. Keeping everything operating smoothly all the time has been a challenge. It is a large physical plant, Roberts said. All in all, despite a few more gray hairs on my head, the rst year has gone better than I ex pected. CIR cC LE FROM PAGE A A 1two fatal attacks by coyotes in the Unit ed States in the last 60 y ears. They are even more afraid of us than bears are, Morse said. They rarely cause problems, as long as you secure your trash and pets. Ray Napper of Lake Haven Estates saw an old coyote about 20 feet away from him two weeks ago. On Tuesday, he heard a pack mak ing a kill in 440 acres of conser vation land be hind his house. Before the build ing going on, this was a wildlife corr idor, Nap per said. I havent seen any since (r ecently). Im hoping not to. Canis latrans, which means barking dog, resembles a small Ger man shepherd weighing between 15-30 pounds according to www.myfwc.com. East ern coyotes have more r ed fur than their west ern cousins. Typically shy and elusive, coy otes travel alone or in small packs and help control rodent popula tions. F loridas coyotes were thought to be ex tinct, said Highlands C ounty Property Ap praiser Raymond McIntyre, who hunts the animals for lo cal ranchers and dairy o wners when packs at tack livestock. He said the r ed wolf drove coy otes toward extinction, but after it died off in 1990, people started seeing coyotes again by 1996. In the last 10 years, with no natural preda tors, the population in this par t of Florida has grown exponentially, McIntyre said. He gets calls as often from sub urban residents now as r anchers. He harvests 4050 each year, and af ter four years hunting them, their numbers have not decreased. They reproduce as fast as we can harvest them, McIntyre said. Theyre becoming a nuisance. Theyre even in downtown St. Pete. Morse said FWC studies urban coy otes, because of their nuisance potential: Pi nellas County has had them for 30 y ears. The best way to control their populations is not over-hunt them. When their numbers drop too low, coyotes hormones surge and they mate more often with more pups per litter, Morse said. California tried to eradicate coyotes and ended up with more of them, he said. Florida doesnt tally its coyote population. They arent threatened and may be hunted as long as the method is legal and safe to the public. When hes in open country, McIntyre uses high-powered ries, but around residences, trapping is the only ef fective way, if it works. It takes a long time to trap them because they are so smart, Mc Intyre said. Its hard to get them to go into a trap. Morse said not only do coyotes avoid the traps, but traps arent species specic they also catch cats, dogs, raccoons and other animals. McIntyre said state studies have shown Floridas coyotes feed on insects, plants/ber ries and mammals r odents, deer, livestock and pets. Both McIntyre and Napper bring animals in after dusk. I wont go looking for (coyotes), because theyve got big teeth, Napper said. Morse said if there is an immediate public safety issue, the FWC would respond imme diately alongside local law enfor cement. Otherwise, both he and McIntyre advise residents with ques tions to call Wildlife Assistance Biologist Angeline Scotten at the FW C Lakeland ofce at 863-648-3200. COYOTES FROM PAGE A A 1HELEN C.

OBITUARIES BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER To live with coyotes in Florida, take some ba sic precautions to prevent creating the conditions that could lead to them be ing a nuisance.KEEP YOUR PETS SAFECoyotes can and do prey on domestic cats and small dogs. Dont allow pets them to roam freely, especially either at night or at dusk or dawn. Dur ing these times, be careful walking your pet in wood ed areas or in heavily-foli age areas where coyotes might hide. NN EVER FEED cC O YOTESDont place food out doors that will attract wild animals. Clean up pet food, fallen fruit, and bird seed around feeders. Secure garbage cans and compost in ani mal-proof containers.KEEP YOUR DISTAN cC EDont try to pet a coyote and teach children not to approach any unfamil iar animal. With coyotes, teach children to recog nize and not to run from them. If children are ap proached, have them move slowly into a house or climb up on a swing, tree or deck, and yell. Frighten away coyotes by making loud noises and acting aggressively, such as waving your arms in the air, throwing sticks or spraying them with a hose. Dont attempt to hurt the animals, however, be cause injured animals are more likely to attack. BB EWAREBe aware of unusu al coyote behavior, such as approaching people, stalking pets, chasing jog gers/bikers or attacking leashed pets. Close of f crawl spaces under porches and sheds. Coyotes and other ani mals use such areas for resting and raising young.Prevent animal nuisances GAINESVILLE (AP) Police say an intox icated man was run o ver by his own pickup truck after he got into a road rage incident dur ing a rainstorm.

www.newssun.comFriday, July 25, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A7 I must have been 6or 7-years old when I started my collection of old shing lures. My family, particular ly my dad and my uncle were fanatical bass sher men, and even at that young age I can remember spending hours in the wintertime sharpening hooks, painting lures and x ing whatever needed xed for our rst sh ing trip in the spring. Listening to their sto ries about the big sh caught and those lost gave the lures almost a magical history. My collection was small, mostly old, beat en up and scarred topwater lur es that needed hooks, paint or skirts, but I didnt care. I kept them in an old shoe-box, which Id spent hours making small compartments to hold each prized pos session. T o me, they all looked good enough to catch sh and every year Id do my best to get them in shape for the com ing season. B y the age of 12, my grandfather gave me his old Kennedy tack le box, full of Jitterbugs, H ula Poppers, John son Spoons and walleye rigs. M any looked brand new, and they probably were, since he wasnt as crazy about shing as my dad and my uncle, but he knew I was pas sionate about shing and collecting plugs Moving everything from the old shoe box to the Kennedy tackle box was a big deal. With dozens of com partments, my small collection of lur es bare ly took up half the space But that would change over the next few years as I began re pairing shing rods in ex change for lures. My collection grew into the hundreds. Back then, my fa ther rented a stake on one of the lakes and we kept a small 14 jon boat chained up on the shoreline and when I turned 16, my father gave me a key to the lock. Given a choice be tween school and driving my old Buick to the lake it was an easy decision. By the time I was a senior in high school, I skipped classes for a month straight before my father found out and he threatened to take back my key. As much as I hat ed school, the thought of losing my key to the boat and not being able to go shing was more than an idle threat. I knew my dad meant business, so Id go to school and dream about shing. After high school and a couple of years in the Army, my steady sh ing partner became my dad. W e shed as often as we could, often tak ing his buddy Joe along with us Without an elec tric motor, wed take tur ns rowing the 16 Sea Nymph until some one caught a bass, then w ed switch places. Around the early 70s, everyone was talking about a hot, new lure called the Big O. In those days there was no internet, sh ing tackle web sites or ev en much in the way of shing tackle stores. With no Bass Pro Shops or Cabelas to buy tackle, I was left to shop at our local bait and tackle that seldom carried more than a handful of shing lures. The professional tournaments were just getting started back in those days and as a member of B.A.S.S. I would devour ev ery page of the monthly publication, often sending in to v arious companies to get their catalog and mail order new plugs. It seemed we were al ways talking about the SPORTsS FISHIN AROUNDDon NortonFred Young and the Big O Courtesy photoThe Big O shing lure that was such a prized possession for a young Don Norton.SEE LUR EE | A9 BY JAMES TA YY LOR NEWS-S SUn N CORRESPOn N DEn N T SEBRING Four weeks from today 28 days.

B ut in Wednes days championship r ound, the tables were turned on them as Spring Hill took 4-0 and 14-10 wins to capture the state ti tle and head off to the D ixie World Series in Shreveport, Louisi ana. B eing the only un beaten team left, any team hoping to take the crown would have had to beat Sebring twice, but head coach Cesar Martinez saw some bad signs. It really started last night, he said of Se brings 13-6 win over W est Volusia Tues day to reach the title game. You see the scor e and think we won big, but we didnt play clean baseball. And heading into Wednesdays rst game, Martinez knew his boys faced a daunting task against Spring Hills lanky, left-hander J.P. Gates, who had been domi nant throughout the tour nament on the mound. Hes been the stud of the tournament, he said. And he proved it against us. That he did in strik ing out 11 Streaks in v e innings of work before giving way to reliever John Olivera who struck out three more over the nal two innings. The Spring Hill of fense scratched for a r un in the third, add ed two more in the sixth and one in the seventh. But only that rst one was needed as Sebring mustered less than a handful of hits. Facing a new pitcher in the rub ber-match, however, boded well for the nor mally high-pow ered Blue Streak bats. And that tur ned out to be the case as they put three on the board in the top of the rst. Spring Hill an swered with a twospot in their half and evened it with a run in the second. A scoreless third kept things even to add to the ten sion, but that would be seemingly eased when the Streaks put up four in the top of the fourth to make it a 7-3 contest. A lone run for Spring Hill in the bot tom half closed the gap a bit, but S ebring got that run back in the top of the fth to hold an 8-4 lead. But thats when the grip on the steering wheel came loose as a combination of time ly hitting and sloppy defense paved the way to a sev en-run bottom of the fth to put Spring Hill into the lead at 11-8. The Streaks scored twice in the sixth to close the gap to one, but three more Spring Hill runs came across to widen it out to what would be the nal 14-10 margin.

The rst few w ere sold for $15, but my un cle conrmed the price was no w up to $25 and likely to go up again. Today, $25 doesnt seem like that much money (although many would argue that theyd never spend that much on a single lure), but in the early 70s, it was close to a days pay. I was making $3.36 an hour back then, and for most blue-collar jobs, factory jobs, that was considered to be pretty good money. A few days went by and my uncle returned with a Big O for himself, my dad and me. It was like Christ mas and that crankbait quickly became my pride and joy. I couldnt wait to sh with it. When I nally did, I wasnt disappointed. It was incredible. I think even the sh were impressed with its beauty. I shed with it so much that after a few months, most of the paint had chipped off, but the bass didnt seem to mind. I painted it a couple of times but the col or didnt seem to matter. It was that incredible wiggle that got the sh s attention. Then the inevitable happened. I hooked a large bass and as I was bring ing the sh in, my line br oke. It was my own fault. My father had told me dozens of times that I needed to re-tie after catching a few sh, but I just hated to stop sh ing. I t was the rst time in my life I quit shing early. Fred Young eventual ly sold the rights to his lur e to a large manufac turing company, Cotton Cordell. They began pr oduc ing thousands of the bait in a plastic mod el and although they caught sh, they w ere never as good as the original, hand-carved beauties. Years went by and like many bass shermen; I fell in love with the plastic worm and other new and exciting baits that seemed to be com ing from everywhere. F ishing tournaments all over the country, I eventually forgot about the Big O. Then, a few years ago, I dug out my old Ken nedy tackle box and remembered the special slot I kept just for my Big O. Thinking back to those days I decided to go on the internet and see if I could nd one of the original lures. As I expected, there were plenty of Cotton Cordell Big Os adver tised, but I only found one original, handcarved lure made by Fred Young and it was on Ebay. There were only a few days left on the auction, but the lure was already bid up to over $800. It was obvious to me that they had become extremely rare and the likelihood of me ever owning another one was pretty slim. But I did take the op portunity to read up on F red Young and how he started whittling these phenomenal crank-baits. Fred had worked for the Atomic Ener gy Commission in Oak Ridge Tennessee and suffered spinal injuries that left him in a body cast. With time on his hands and a keen in terest in shing, he decided to create his own lur es. He had always been intrigued, watching small sh scatter when hed throw gravel into the waters edge al ways swimming with a tight wiggle, and g ured he could make a lur e do the same thing. He experimented with different types of wood; cedar, white pine, yellow poplar and even redwood, but found that only balsa gave his lure the action he was looking for. The lip, which al lowed the bait to dive and wiggle was also a challenge. He tried em ery boards, plastic plug bo xes, paint can lids and aluminum, before settling on pieces of old circuit boards. Unable to sh the lure himself, he de pended on his brother Odis to eld test the l ure. Odis was a good sh erman and often came back with suggestions on how to improve the lure. Fishermen would of ten ask Odis what he was catching his sh on and when he showed them his homemade lure, many made fun of the fat, over-sized body. But no-one could deny that Odis was catching a lot of sh considerably more than every-one else. Another sherman, Bill Nichols started us ing the plug and people began to notice that he was winning a fair number of local tour naments. B ut it wasnt until Nichols introduced the lure to shing legend Billy Westmoreland that it began to gain nation al attention. W estmoreland en tered one of the ear ly B.A.S.S. tournaments on Lake Sidney Lanier in early 1972 where the rst place prize was a check for $10,000. He didnt win the event but he was a close second, insuring the value of the home made plug would continue to soar. B ass shing profes sionals were actually renting the lure out by the hour, often re quiring a hefty deposit in the ev ent it was lost or broken. Soon the lure was fetching $50 dollars, and then $100, and of ten the wait could take up to 6 months Fred eventually sold the homemade plug and all rights to it to the Cotton Cordell Com pany, but not before renaming it after his 6 6 brother Odis who, with out his help, the lure would hav e never be come famous. T oday I have hun dreds, maybe even thousands of old lur es. Many with the bat tle scars and memories fr om bass, muskies and walleyes. But the most elusive bait of all is still miss ing.

We have had a good turnout, some new energy, said rstyear Lake Placid head coach Jason Robin son. Right now we ar e just trying to get in shape for the season. We missed spring and half of summer, but it is what it is and we will make the best of it. Robinson noted that they have some catch ing up, showing that they w ere still calling plays by using chart that showed play di agrams because the play ers do not know them all yet. We are really we are out here to practice, continued Robinson. I want to see the kids compete, see them against some compe tition going on, somebody besides our selves at practice and see what w e are made of under a little bit of re. Robinson believes that with their sched ule, they have a good chance to be in foot ball games in the four th quarter and with that they will have a chance to win. Looking at last year, we have to play a much better de fense and take care of the ball on of fense, remarked Robinson. Those are the two things that stood out from last year in watching the lm. Those will points of emphasis for us come August, put our best players on defense and go from there. For the moment, se nior Foster Walker has been slated as the starting quarterback for Lake Placid. Walker played run ning back last and may also play some fr ee safety on defense this year. Travis Wiggins will be the starting running back for the Green Dragons this year. We will lean on him to tote the rock, said Robinson. Well be a ground and pound team, I dont think we will be throwing the ball too much ear ly. Hopefully by the time w e get to district games, we will have everything in and run ning more smoothly. As for Lake P lacids offensive and defen sive lines, Robinson indicated that they have pr etty good size on both sides of the eld. Size wont be a problem, asserted Robinson. Its get ting stronger and more physical. I think they spent more time in the weight room the last three weeks than they did the last three months combined. Avon Park knows what they want to do, right now they have not decided on who will at the helm in the quarterback position. These 7-on-7s helps us get into our scheme in what we want to do, said Avon Park head coach Wade Jackdon. It gets us out here competing against other teams. We have been lifting weights all summer long and the walls are starting to close in and we are getting tired of it. So its good to come out here to compete against other teams and see where we are at. Though Jackson stat ed that he was pleased with the effor t, they obviously still have some things to work on like making sure they follow their as signments. I like to see us be a little more aggressive, added Jackson. But overall I am pleased where we are at. Jackson said he was not surprised how fast the competitive juic es started to ow within not only his players, but all the play ers in volved. Our kids like to compete and I know the other kids like to compete, commented Jackson. Some of the kids run their mouth a little bit, but I like that. If you cant come out here to compete, then why come out. Though there are no linemen during 7-on7s, Jackson does not feel that is much of a factor as these scrim mages are designed mor e for timing and assignments. You only have four and a half seconds to throw the ball, said Jackson. Everything we can do out here will be something positive that we can build on during the season. As for the linemen, Jackson declared that they have a pretty good offensive line. They have been in the weight room get ting stronger and wor king on foot work, he said. For Sebring head coach LaVaar Scott, who is now the senior high school football coach in Highlands County, a new offen sive coordinator and offensiv e system will bring change to en hance to speed and abilities of the play ers. These 7-on-7s help us continue to work on our passing game, specied Scott. Get out here and be able to throw the ball and compete. That is the biggest thing, you get to go against oth er guys and getting in plays . For Scott, having a faster team is not a major adjustment in scheme. He maintains that it is getting players in the right spots and nding a way to use them. Though he is satis ed about how competitive his team is, Scott is mor e pleased when they do things right. We put in different stuff every day and we bring it out here to see if we can execute it, Scott said. We started off bad today, but they have progressively got ten better in their execution. That is what we look for We have a new co ordinator, new offense, so ev ery day we are in stalling something new that w e are throwing at them and we want to see it. Avon Park will host the next round of 7-on7s next week, though Sebring will not be a part of it. Sebring will travel to Lakeland Christian High School tomorrow to compete in a 20team, 7-on-7 tourna ment. O n Friday, Aug. 22, Lake Placid travels to Okeechobee to play the Brahams. Sebring travels to Mulberry to face the Panthers and Avon Park will host the Tenoroc Titans. Friday Night Lights 2014 version premieres in four weeks or 28 days.

FRED GOODALL ASSOCIa A TED PRESS TAMPA Lovie Smith talks about making the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rele vant again. And, the thir d coach the struggling fran chise has hired to tr y to end a playoff drought thats grown to six seasons doesnt think it will take near ly as long as last years 4-12 nish might sug gest. S mith not only has a proven track record as an NFL head coach, but inherited a talent ed nucleus the club began accumulating under Raheem Morris and later Greg Schia no, who was red after going 11-21 during a tumultuous twoy ear stint. Players have em braced the change, w elcoming Smiths calm, low-key style af ter feeling stied by Schiano the ex-Rut gers coach whose hands-on, in-y ourface approach seemed more suited for col leges than the pros. Im not going into meetings saying: Hey guys, we were 4-12 last year, weve got to get to 5-11, weve made improvement, said Smith, who went 81-63, won three divi sion titles, advanced to two NFC cham pionship games and made one S uper Bowl appearance in nine seasons with the Chi cago Bears from 20042012. No, you talk about winning the division, making Raymond James Stadium a place that people dont want to come and play at, he added. Its all about winning. Smith and new gen eral manager Jason Licht discar ded Pro Bowl cornerback Dar relle Revis and his $16 million annual salar y, providing addition al salary cap space to o verhaul the roster in free agency. Quarterback Josh McCown, pass rush er Michael Johnson, cor nerback Alter raun Verner, defensive tackle Clinton M c Donald, and offensive linemen Anthony C ol lins and Evan Dietrich-Smith were key additions. The team s top three draft picks receiv er Mike Evans, tight end A ustin SeferianJenkins and running back Charles Sims also gure to get op portunities to contribute to an offense that r anked 30th in scoring and dead last in pass ing and total yardage in 2013. Chicago ex celled on defense under Smith, who hopes to lead the Bucs back to promi nence with a version of the C over 2 scheme Tampa Bay popu larized under Tony D ungy in the late 1990s before winning the franchises only Super Bowl cham pionship under Jon G ruden 12 years ago. The Bucs havent won a playoff game since. Smith is count ing on the 35-yearold M cCown, a career backup coming off his best pro season while lling in for an injured Jay Cutler, to make a difference on offense. Hes a vet. He knows how to lead, Smith said. We feel like we have the right guys competing for certain positions, Smith said. Theyre denitely ready to change the culture and become a rele vant team again.Smith confident Bucs can make quick turnaround

Consider reducing your enter tainment expenses and opt instead for less expensive, family-friendly activities, such as camping trips, hiking adventures or visiting a free art gallery. These activities are typically more enriching on a physical, intellectual and emotional level and increase family bonding which is always a great thing.Reap the rewardsFrom grocery store chains that offer gasoline discounts to clothing retailers who offer special member incentives, rewards programs provide truly great perks for families trying to save some dough. Even popular search engines are joining in on the fun of rewarding members for their loyalty. For example, when people sign in to their Microsoft Account to search for any thing on Bing.com, they can earn Bing Rewards credits. These credits can be redeemed for everything from air line miles, gas points, summer blockbuster entertainment and gift cards to major retailers and restaurants. On average, people can earn credits worth the equiva lent of more than one coffee per month with Bing Rewards.Buy usedFrom clothing to cars, you can typically nd a gently used version of something you need at a much better price. Look for specialty stores who sell used video games for the little ones. Or, if youre in the market for furniture or unique gifts, the local antique dealer or ea market is a great place to check out.

Start a yard sale or take the items to a consignment shop to earn ex tra cash. You can also donate the items to a local charity for a tax deduc tion. If you nd that sentimental attach ment keeps you holding on to too many items, ask yourself if the item has been used within the last six months.

For a fun weekend getaway, look for camping sites at the local state park. If roughing it isnt your thing, there are many websites that showcase rooms or homes you can rent for vaca tion. These options are usually run by the homeowner and offer an affordable and unique alternative to a mundane and often overpriced hotel room.Purchase hand-me-downsFor growing families, clothing purchases can add up fast, especially with multiple kids. While shop ping, choose clothing in colors suit able for boys and girls, such as green, yellow and orange. You can then pass down this wardrobe to the next child in line, limiting the amount of money you spend on clothing they will quickly outgrow.Give homemade giftsFamily life comes with its many giftgiving opportunities from birthdays to holidays to special life milestones. Because these occasions happen often, all of the purchases can add up. Put your creative juices to work and visit your local craft or hobby store for homemade gifts your family and friends will treasure.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, July 25, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: When my friend Fran and I get together with our kids, they often play games on her cellphone until the battery dies. If she tries to take the phone from her 6-year-old to make a call or recharge the phone, he starts yelling at her, pushes her, pulls her skirt and hits her. Her reaction is to hug him and start praying for the devil to get out of his body in Jesus name as he continues to hit her. While I respect Frans religion, Im appalled at his violent behavior, concerned that he will grow up thinking its OK to hit people, and I think this should be handled differently. What do you think? Should I say something? APPALLED BY THE VIOLENCE DEAR APPALLED: Surely by now Fran knows what will happen when she lets her son play with her cellphone. The boy may act this way because his mother never taught him how to deal with frustration in a healthy way. Whether his outbursts are the result of poor parenting or an emotional disability, be less concerned about hurting Frans feelings than about whether her son could seriously hurt her in another year or two. Tell her this and urge her to discuss the boys behavior with his pediatrician before his problems get worse and he becomes unmanageable. DEAR ABBY: I recently got married. The week before our wedding, my husband was so hateful and hard to get along with that I wasnt sure what was going on with him. When I asked if he still wanted to get mar ried, he would say yes. On the day of our wedding he brought up his ex-wifes name twice each time making snide remarks. Nonetheless, he married me. He has slept downstairs every night since our wedding, not in our bed. Our marriage has yet to be consummated. So tell me, Abby, whats his problem? MISERABLE BRIDE IN OHIO DEAR BRIDE: The only person who can answer that question is your husband. Clearly, he is not happy either. Tell him that you are worried about him and ask him to level with you. Offer him the option of marriage counseling, but if he refuses, then, frankly, you both may be better off if this marriage is annulled.Tyke becomes a terror when mom takes her cellphone DEAR ABBY Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. PUZZLE CORNER Movie ReviewCRITICS RATING So lets start with the enticing premise of Luc Bessons Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson: Human beings only use 10 percent of their brain capacity. Imagine what it would be like if we could access all of it? Well, wow. It would be sort of like ... nothing new. Because, it turns out, in real life, humans pretty much DO use their whole brains. DARN! Now, we could choose to be annoyed that Besson starts with a total myth. Or we could give him a pass because, hey, the movie is ction anyway. The more relevant question, though, is how much of your own brain you should use when watching Lucy a truly bizarre if often entertaining romp through, hmm, well, neuroscience, biochemistry, anthropology and basically the entire human experience, in 90 minutes. (Oh, plus a really cool car chase.) And heres another question: Just how much of his brain did Besson access when writing the dialogue? (That may sound nasty, but Mr. Besson, youre the one who got us thinking about cerebral capacity.) The director knows his way around a camera, and you can argue about the merits of the storyline. But the dialogue often sounds like it was produced by a primitive computer: Hammy and clunky. As for the name Lucy, it refers to the famous fossilized skeleton of a female estimated to have lived some 3 million years ago. Thank goodness that primitive woman has now evolved into a bleached blonde, airheaded student of some sort, living in Taiwan. Thats where we meet Johanssons Lucy, who at least seems more mature than her jerk of a boyfriend, who forces her to deliver a mysterious briefcase to a shady gang boss. Turns out, its a drug delivery a shiny blue crystal called cph4. Lucy and a few other unfortunates are the chosen mules, doomed to y to Europe with packages implanted in their stomachs. Only, theres a hitch. Roughed up by thugs, Lucy suffers blows to the abdomen, and the drug starts leaking into her system. Suddenly, shes writhing uncontrollably on the ceiling, no less. And then things get really weird. The drugs effect is to enhance Lucys brain capacity. As it starts to climb 20 percent, 30 percent, and so on Lucy can suddenly speak Chinese. She can shoot six guys at a time. She can hear and see and feel everything. She remembers being an infant. She calls her mother back home: I remember the taste of your milk in my mouth, she says, tearfully. Because shes becoming so smart Lucy uses two laptops at a time, furiously unlocking the secrets of science she knows that her condition gives her only 24 hours to live. Heres where you shouldnt get bogged down attempting logical analysis. As in, if Lucy can control movement and space and time, why cant she expand the 24 hours? And really, why does she need to y commer cial to Paris? Oh yes, Paris. Lucy heads there to meet Professor Norman, an expert on cerebral capacity (Morgan Freeman, in that gravelly voiced, level-headed role youve seen him play so many times). Simultaneously, shes trying to recover all the drug packets, with the help of a police detective (Amr Waked) who really doesnt know what hit him, but they do have an awesome car chase together. Professor Norman advises Lucy that, as she approaches 100 per cent capacity and death she should do something useful with all the precious knowledge shes acquiring. And we really didnt want to say this again, but: This is where it gets REALLY weird. We wont give away the frantic ending, and were not sure we could, even if we tried. At a certain point, the best strategy may be to just sit back, listen to the pounding music, admire those bright colors, and just shut that brain down entirely. Lucy, a Universal Studios release, is rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for strong violence, disturbing images, and sexuality. Running time: 90 minutes.

Friday, July 25, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 www.newssun.com I didnt like tea growing up but now it is a passion. I often want a caffeinated drink that isnt coffee. I used to drink a lot of yerba mate tea, because it lights me and increases my mental focus and energy. Ive discovered Guayusa now. Guayusa is pronounced gwhyyou-suh and its been enjoyed for centuries in other parts of the world. Local growers who live in the Amazon rainforest grow this on small farms and I feel good about supporting them. Guayusa isnt technically a tea, its an herb that comes from the holly tree (Ilex guayusa), which has nothing to do with the tea plant Camellia sinensis that gives us black and green tea. Drink Guayusa early in the day because it gives you a lift similar to coffee but less jolt and jitters. It is not black tea, and its not green tea. This is an herbal tea so that should be okay for people with stones, however make sure you its right for you especially if you have hypertension, heart disease or kidney stones. Im an avid tea maker, and I have noticed that guayusa is a more forgiving of the cook time. By that I mean if I let the yerba mate boil too long, it gets very bitter. With guayusa, its still good if you overcook it. Its less grassy than yerba mate and sweeter, so I dont need to add too much honey which is nice for my insulin and glucose levels! It tastes more like green tea than anything else if I have to compare it to something. Guayusa is very healthy because it contains natural antioxidants and polyphenols. These ingredients are known to improve metabolism and blood sugar, and protect your cells from oxidation (cellular rusting). If youre on a budget, youll love guayusa because you can re-steep the herb numer ous times. So one tablespoon can be re-steeped six times. After that the flavor (and healing goodies) are all gone. The amount of focus and energy you get will also start to wane the more frequently you steep the same herb. My hope is that some of you addicted to caffeine and coffee might be able to break your addiction little by little by adding guayusa (or yerba mate). The potential for allergies with this herb exists, just like it does with any herb or drug. You can drink guayusa hot or cold. You can also add other herbals while brewing it, like a leaf of peppermint, or some ginger or cinnamon. If youre too busy to brew your own, just buy commercially prepared drinks. Look in the refrigerator section because some health food stores sell this bottled and chilled. You can buy prepared tea bags, instead of bulk herb. Ive tried Runa brand and appreciate all the flavors, and the fact that its non-GMO. I travel and find myself in different time zones, or on red-eye flights so theres always a teabag in my purse.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

Aspirin helps prevent the risk of heart attack in men, but not women. It decreases stroke risk for women, but not for men. Osteoporosis (bone that is easier to break) affects women at an earlier age than men who do not catch up until they are in their 80s. Pacer debrillators, such as the device Dick Cheney had implanted, have life-saving benets in men, but none in women. Heart disease, not breast cancer, is the number one cause of death from disease in women. In fact, more women than men die of heart disease. Men have the classic symptoms of a heart attack crushing chest pain, often radiating down the left arm. Women more commonly present to the Emergency Department with nausea and lower abdominal pain and often are misdiagnosed. Seventy percent more women than men have depression (probably from putting up with men) and yet studies trying to understand related brain function have a male to female ratio of 5.5 males for every female. Nonsmoking women have three times the risk of developing lung cancer when compared to nonsmoking men. Women have a 1.5 to 1.7 times greater chance of an adverse drug reaction than men. Most drug studies are done on white males. Expanding the studies to include women costs more money that drug companies are not willing to spend. Even when studies have both males and females, the data is often not analyzed for gender differences. Some of the difference in drug response is that the average woman is smaller than the average man. Women, even thin ones, have a higher fat content. It is what gives women those nice curves. Drugs that are fat soluble may not be cleared as rapidly in women. Some enzymes work differently, causing differences in metabolism, and kidney ltering rates are different. After 20 years on the market, the sleep aid Ambien recently had the recommended dose for women cut in half because 15 percent of women had lingering side effects, including drowsiness sufcient to cause auto wrecks. Women have better response to psychiatric drugs and some colon cancer treatments. My own specialty of orthopedics has one of the most striking differences between men and women. Men have more traumatic injuries, but women have more disability from musculoskeletal causes. Scoliosis (cur vature of the spine), and injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament in the knee are more common in adolescent girls. Because women have looser ligaments, the joint at the base of the thumb wears out becoming painful and requiring reconstruction much more frequently in women. They also have more stress fractures (fractures that occur because of repetitive use rather than a single injury), osteoporotic fractures and osteoarthritis. In 1993, the National Institutes of Health mandated that all research on humans funded by them include men and women and that the data be analyzed for differ ences between the sexes. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons has asked that all presentations at the annual meeting address gender differences where appropriate and the FDA is asking for studies of gender differences in all new medications. Hopefully the new push for DNA person alized medicines and awareness of the problem will result in more effective treatment for women.Men and women not equal in medicine Dr. Diana CarrGUEST COLUMN Dr. Diana D.

The best way to care for skin is to be smart about sun exposure. Too much unprotected exposure to the sun can cause a host of problems, from premature wrinkling to skin cancer. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, millions of cases of skin cancer are reported each year, and many more may go undetected. The best way to protect skin from the sun is to stay out of the sun. When that is not feasible, using a broad-spectrum sunscreen can guard against damage from ultraviolet radiation. Although sunscreen is an enormous help, it is not foolproof. Sunburns and skin damage can occur even when using sunscreen, and user error accounts for much of that damage. To get the best results from any sunscreen product, consumers can educate themselves about proper application and avoid certain information inaccuracies. Myth: The best sunscreen is the one with the highest SPF. Actually, the best sunscreen is the one you will use regularly. Make sure you like the scent and the feel of the sunscreen. Decide if you prefer a sunscreen that is grouped together with a moisturizer or a makeup foundation. Try sunscreens that are lotions or sticks to gure out which application works best for you. Once youve found a product you like, stick with it. But make sure the sunscreen has an adequate sun protection factor, or SPF. Myth: I only need sunscreen on sunny days. The sun can prove harmful even on cloudy days. You may not be safe indoors, either, particularly if you spend a good deal of time next to an open window. Window glass will only block certain types of UV light, making sunburn possible even if you are indoors or riding in a car. Its a good habit to apply sunscreen daily regardless of if you will be out in the sun. Myth: Spray sunscreens are as effective as the rest. Spray products may not deliver enough sunscreen to the skin because droplets are dispersed unevenly. Furthermore, the propellents used in spray sunscreens could be harmful if inhaled. Opt for sunscreens that are applied by hand and can be adequately coated over all areas of the skin. Myth: Sunscreen does not need to be reapplied, especially if its water-resistant. There is no such thing as a waterproof sunscreen. The Food and Drug Administration recently prohibited the use of the term waterproof because consumers falsely believed their sunscreen products would not wash off. Water-resistant sun screens will be effective for a certain number of minutes before they need to be reapplied, usually between 40 to 90 minutes. If you have been sweating profusely or have been in the pool or ocean for awhile, play it safe and reapply often. Myth: A little drop of sunscreen is all thats needed. Many people are applying far too little sunscreen to protect themselves from the sun. The average person needs about an ounce of lotion to cover his or her entire body. Think about the size of a shot glass and use that amount. Myth: Spending more money on SPF 50 will get me superior protection. The rate of protection from SPF 30 to SPF 50 is marginal. SPF 30 (when applied correctly) can protect against 97 percent of UVB rays. Thats adequate for many people. Its most important to choose a sunscreen that protects against UVA and UVB rays.Keep skin healthy by knowing sunscreen factsHEALTHY LIVING CROSSWORD SOLUTION 3054170

It seemed they would not make it to the fence and over it in time, so one boy hollered to the other, Why dont you start praying? What should I say? asked the second boy. Pray that prayer your dad says before you eat, came the reply. Out of breath and almost overrun by a goat, the second boy cried out in a loud voice, Father, make us grateful for that which we are about to receive! Prayer is a wonderful thing, but very often it used only in times of desperation when we feel that there is nothing else left to do. Many times, we resort to prayer when we see no other alternative. Instead, we should look for the opportunities to go to God in prayer whenever we are able. Paul wrote to some Christians in 1 Thessalonians 5:1618, Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is Gods will for you in Christ Jesus. As a Christian, I understand the power and the necessity of prayer. I also understand that God is always faithful in answering my prayers. At the same time, however, I know that God does not always answer my prayers in the ways that I want Him to. He answers them according to what He determines is best for my life. I just need to remember that He knows more about what I truly need than I do. So, how does one pray? And, can anyone pray to God? Does He listen to every prayer that is offered? In the coming weeks, we will try to answer these and other questions. In the meantime, know that a man without prayer is like a car without wheels he is going nowhere!The power of prayer Kevin PattersonKEVINS KOMMENTS Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 33870. Find them on the internet at www. sebringcoc.com, or e-mail sebring parkway@sebringcoc.com. To those who know the power of the gospel of Jesus, the Christ (Romans 1:16,17), this may sound like a strange question. The accounts of the life of Christ (Matthew-John) tell us of many precious lives consumed by sins yet forgiven through Divine mercy and grace. The book of Acts relates to us also many lives, slaves to sins, forgiven in the message of the new birth. Yet, there are volumes of people today who believe they have so sinned that they can never be forgiven and come into a reconciled relationship with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. To these we wish to speak! First, you must understand the following Truth: Say to them, As I live, says the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel? (Ezekiel 33:11). The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. (2 Peter 3:9). God did not create man for failure, but rath er for success and that includes you, i.e. ME! Consider carefully the person who said, But by the grace of God I am what I am. 1) This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I AM CHIEF (1 Timothy 1:15 emphasis added). 2) Indeed, I, myself thought I must do many things CONTRARY to the name of Jesus of Nazareth (Acts 26:9). 3) For I am the least of the apostles, who am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I PERSECUTED the church of God (1 Corinthians 15:9). Pauls conversion/ new birth is recorded in Acts 9 & 22 and he later wrote in Philippians 3:13,14, Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, FORGETTING those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. The church of Christ, the body of Christ in Corinth was reminded, And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctied, but you were justied in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God (1 Corinthians 6:11). What WERE some of you? Fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, homosexuals, sodomites, thieves, covetous drunkards, revilers and extortioners! (verses 9,10) Paul, on this second preaching tour, brought the good news of mercy and grace through the Christ to Corinth (Acts 18:1-11) and continued teaching for a year and six months. In his rst letter to them, Paul reminded the saints, Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you-unless you believed in vain (1 Corinthians 15:1,2). Philip went into Samaria and boldly preached the good news about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ. When they believed the message of forgiveness, men and women alike were baptized including Simon. (Acts 8:4-13). Later, Simon, fell back into some of his old ways! Peter, through the power of the Holy Spirit, informed Simon of the seriousness of his spiritual situation, You have no part or portion in this matter, for your heart is not right before God. Therefore repent of this wickedness of yours, and pray the Lord that, if possible, the intention of your heart may be forgiven you (Acts 8:21,22). Remember Ezekiel 33:11 and 2 Peter 3:9 and the way of escape. A nal exhortation: For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righteous man; though perhaps for a good man someone would dare to die. But God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:6-8). Reading suggestion: substitute the plural pronouns we, us with the singular I or me.

He was ordained a Deacon in July, 1964 and an Elder in July, 1965, at the Eastern Annual Conference of the Evangelical Methodist Church in Wilmore, KY. Cowles is a graduate of Azusa College (Now Azusa Pacic University), California (B.A.); Ashland Theological Seminary (M.A.); and Methodist Theological School of Ohio (M.Div.). He received certication as a Chaplain and Clinical Pastoral Education. He was a licensed social worker in Ohio and has had special training in fam ily systems therapy. Cowles has been engaged as a chaplain in varied health care settings, pastoral ministries in churches, adjunct college professor, pastoral counselor and social worker. He is founder and director of Pacer Ministries. In reection on his ministerial career, Cowles described a brief history of mental illness and hospitalization in his teen years. After his recovery he was concerned about whether this would affect his future education and ordination. Yet, during his chaplaincy ministry he has shared with hundreds of patients in psychiatric hospitals and in a local mental health center and it has had a positive impact on his ministry. Following his retirement and relocation in 2005, Cowles has continued to minister as a chaplain at the Oaks at Avon Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and as a volunteer chaplain at the Avon Park Correctional Institute as well as sharing in music and pulpit supply at local churches and the Avon Park Camp services.

Although the style originated more than 70 years ago, this trend has resurfaced with a fresh revival. Retro colors and simplistic styles are just the beginning when it comes to transforming a home into a sophisticated, mid-century modern residence. Here are some easy, yet impactful upgrades you can do at home: inspiration ric shapes are hallmarks of the mid-century movement. These form the foundation for the newest Brizo bath collection which leverages a number of in uences including a 1950s airliner and automobile tail ns, making it a perfect staple for starting an interior design bathroom transformation. Its obvious the inspiration from the sleek, streamlined aesthetic of an airplane, but its about something bigger than that, too, says Celine Garland, industrial designer for Brizo products. The collection was inspired by the optimism of mid-century America. We took the spirit of the 1950s and reimagined it in a way thats both a nod to the past and a celebration of the present. This signature piece takes modernization to the next level with the option of a closed or channel spout, creating a multi-sensory experience which offers an elegant, beautiful water ow.Vibrant textureMid-century modern design showcases quality pieces of furniture or accessories rather than dcor on the walls. White or neutral color palettes are typical on the walls, but your space comes to life with accessories, bright colors, various patterns and textures. Opt for lamps with curved bases paired with narrow lampshades, accent pillows that tout bright orange and geometric shapes, or retro art to add mid-century modern personality throughout the home. Whether the dining room features a gold bar cart stacked with your favorite beverages or the kitchen shines with a unique, vintage light xture blending designs from the past into a modern home will result in a personalized, sophisticated style that is sure to satisfy your design cravings and impress guests for years to come. Furniture from this era is characterized by clean, straight lines which play up the natural beauty of the design. Pieces that are stripped down to a simple form often speak louder than those with tic kitchen chairs or cabinets with wood detailing in the living room are perfect ways to play up this modern design theme in your home. Looking for one piece of iconic furniture to make a statement? Find an impressive Eames lounge chair featuring a wood and leather combination to act as the focal point for a sitting room or bedroom.
