The News-Sun is honored to celebrate him as the Unsung Hero for July of 2014. We chose him for more than one reason. First, for his 35 years of sel ess dedication and outstanding skill, and second because he is the quintessential example of the volunteer re ghter men and women whom we too often take for granted. In todays world, volunteer re ghters are only volunteer in the sense that they dont get paid. In every other way they are professionals, as well trained as the men and women who get paid for doing the same work. Al Coleman was the chief in 1979. Fortier said Coleman was always pushing for recruits.

They w er e operat ing at the former BP gas station at M emor ial Drive and Cornell S tr eet with permission from the owner, but Avon Park Code Enforcement said they w er e not allowed in that zoning. If possible, they wanted to see if the city would allow them to operate at the Suno co gas station at U.S. 27 and Hal McRae Boulevard. A ccor ding to agenda materials for Mondays joint meeting between the Avon Park City Council and the P&Z Board, city code per mits car washing and detailing oper ations at service station lots, but does not specify the types of car washing operations permitted, such as hand-washing, automated or self-ser vice. Also standalone car washes are not listed in the city code; neither are development and oper ational standar ds for such businesses, except that car washing and detailing must have one parking space for every two emplo y ees and must be done in an enclosed building, such as a ser vice bay. Xclusiv e D etailing was proposing to use a metal pole and aluminum or cloth over hang, similar to businesses at Citgo stations in S ebr ing and Lake Placid. However, suggested changes to the code, as stated in the agenda, would require any car wash to be in a xed, non-movable and roofed structure locat ed on a concrete slab or existing pav ement. Colors and nishes of the structure would have to match or blend with that of existing structures, too. The site would also have to have a mini mum of four parking/ waiting spaces pr o vided to customers, oper ating hours no earlier or later than that of any business that s already there, and would hav e to hav e on-site restroom facilities, according to the suggested code. The suggested code would also r equire stand-alone car washes to use a water recycling system, with water r unoff not impeding mo vement of cars and pedestr ians on the property. The joint City Council and P&Z Board meeting is scheduled for 5:15 / p .m. Monday in the council chambers at 123 E. Pine St. in A v on Park.

www.newssun.comSunday, July 27, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | A3 3064956 BY MIKE MCMILLAN SPECIAL TO THE NEWs S-SUn N Can you name a library that has no card, no fees, no nes and no operating hours a library that is open 24/7? The answ er is the Little Free Library (LFL), concept of Rick B r ooks and Todd Bol of Wisconsin in honor of their mothers, who were teachers and avid book readers. In its most basic form, the Little Free Library is a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book and bring back another to share. The LFL Program is designed to help people recycle their gently used books and to discover new favor ites. While the concept of fr ee libraries has existed for 100 years, the idea of placing small structures containing books in high trafc areas is relative ly new. The LFL is such a no v elty the mere presence of one can stop trafc. The motto of the LFL is Take a Book. Return a Book and since there is no librarian and no late fees, if you decide to keep the book, thats OK, too. Initiated in 2010, there are now over 15,000 LFLs spread over 62 countries, and that number is ex pected to grow exponentially in 2014 and 2015. I n H ighlands County, at least one LFL already exists in the Golf Hammock subdivision. Residents across the country in communities where LFL s have been established have witnessed a sense of community r eminiscent of the old days. N eighbors often meet for the rst time at the LFL. The structures themselves are as varied and imaginativ e as the books they hold; repurposing of old items is common. Themed LFLs are com mon, too. For example, one LFL outside a medical center featur es books on health and wellness and another located outside of an ecology center is lled with books on nature and wildlife. On a local level, this initiative will be managed by the Highlands C ounty P arks and Nat ural Resources Department in partnership with the H ighlands C ounty Library system. The weatherproof containers, or kiosks, will be built with scr ap mater ials from various construction projects and be of little to no cost. I n-house labor forces will build the kiosks Steve Becker constructed the rst County-maintained LFL. Mary Myers, Director of the Highlands County Library System will sup ply the books to initially stock the kiosks and then r estock as needed. The Friends of the Library are donating the $35 registra tion fee which adds the LFL to a nationwide system. Lake G lenada P ark received the rst countymaintained LFL, which was installed J uly 15. Other potential locations are county -o wned facilities at the Lake Olivia walking trail, George Boulevard Campus (Agri-Civic Center), Istokpoga Park, W indy P oint Park, Lorida Schoolhouse and Martin Luther King Park at Carver Park. S imilar to the community gar den concept, this pr ogr am should foster a sense of community for our citizens and visitors as well as enhance the public services provided by these two B oar d of County Commission departments. I f y ou would like more information concerning LFLs in Highlands County, please call the Parks & N atur al Resources Department at 863-402-6812.Take a book, return a book at Little Free Libary Courtesy photoSteve Becker ( left) and Guy Culp work on installing the Little Free Libary at Lake Glenada (below).

www.newssun.comSunday, July 27, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | A5 Response to Teapublicans commentsMs. Grimes, can you please point me to the documents that state Head republicans held se cret meetings to not pass any Obama legislation and They vowed that any law on the econo my would be rst on the list? The facts that I hav e sho w the house has passed 40 job bills in the last 18 months that have yet to be act ed on by Senate Democrats. P lease sho w me the documented facts. Anti Amer icans. Pretty harsh words considering an economy has only improved minimally, it denitely has not dramatically improved. Statistical facts July 22, 2014: The share of adults who are work ing is at 1984 levels, this is the worst r eco very ever for long-term unemployed, more adults have left the workforce than found new jobs, Six years later, 32 states have yet to recover the jobs lost due to the recession. Adults working-full time are at record lows prior to recession. Millions of individuals in the 2545 age group are not working. Millions of jobs created are part time, many in workforce have had their hours lowered from 40 to 30 hours. Personally I think your com ments are totally un-founded, hav e no facts to back them up what I have presented here is based on Bureau of Labor statistics, Market Watch, Federal GDP and F orbes numbers.JOHN NN ELSONSebringWhat world is that?I was encouraged by Millie Grimes letter concerning the economy . Sadly it turned out to be a tirade on the teapublicans. As to her version of the economy, we are living in the greatest of times. Her recital about the number of jobs which hav e been dr amatically created, 52 months of private sector job growth. It really makes one feel great to think of how our economy and country are growing. But why do we have 40 million people on food stamps? According to her the teapub licans are angry because of this upsur ge in this utopian econom y. Then, I look at my countr y and feel it is going do wn the tube. Seventeen-plus trillion dollars in debt. The cost of food keeps going up every week, with hamburger at $4 per pound and milk also $4 per gallon. And to top this off the county wants to r aise the sales tax. O ur country is being overrun by illegal immigrants, which are not just Hispanics but from all countries including the Middle Eastern people, whose primary concern is to destroy us and our country. Reality keeps me from enjoying Millies world, but I am glad that she enjoys the world we are liv ing in today.DICK FOR dD SebringEditors note: The countys onecent infrastructure tax has been in place for many years and will be the ballot to be renewed.

Its a civNEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OU rR VIE wW YOU rR V IE wW SThis editorial is asking a lot from all of us maintaining the one-pen ny sales tax to continue funding c o unty infrastructure projects, and granting The School Board of High lands County half-cent sales tax. The county has had a current onecent sales tax in place since 1989, but it is due to expire in 2019. Chris Benson, administrative projects manager, said the tax will have generated $235.9 mil lion over its 30-year life. The county is asking to extend it for another 15 years In the past the tax has paid for, among other things, a new Veterans Servic es building, animal control improve ments and new dog pens, Avon Park Libr ar y renovations, supervisor of elections equipment and resurfaced 560 miles of r oad. P lans for the next 15 years, should the tax be approved, include an EMS ambulance eet, sheriffs ofce patrol cars, a downtown EMS station, pub lic works equipment, intersection and road safety impr ovements and an addi tional parking lot at the Sebring Health D epar tment. School boards are dependent on state funding. Through the Great Reces sion, housing values dropped, mean ing property tax revenue dropped as w ell. G overnments were forced to slash budgets, including the public school system. As a result, maintenance issues were put off, as were upgrades in technology and safety issues. According to Mike Ayvert, assistant superintendent for business opera tions, the half-cent sales tax will gen erate approximately $4.3-4.5 million annually o v er the next 15 years. This revenue may only be used for capital outlay expenditures. The tax would be be used for safety and security projects like fencing and and cameras, technology to maintain and upgrade computers and software in the classrooms (essential in pre paring our students for the high-tech world that will only transfor m faster in the future), maintenance projects for 17 schools and the district ofce, new construction for classrooms at Lake Country and Memorial elementary schools and nally to purchase buses to get back to the districts former 10year replacement cycle. We know the the same nancial woes that plague governments haunt us cit izens as well, and that while a penny and a half may not seem like much, it can take a bite when making a lar ger purchase. What we need to remember is that overdue repairs, safety issues and cru cial emergency vehicles cannot materialize as the result of magical thinking. F unds need to be raised. We feel continuing to pay a penny we already fork o v er is not too much to ask for. As for contributing a half-cent when purchasing a product, if it ensures our children a quality and safe education we feel its not only a bargain in our own self-interest, but a civic responsi bility.Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.com J oO IN THE C ON vV E rR S atAT I oO NLetters to the editor should be 250 words or less.

This was the day when, accor ding to the website www.food.com, you w er e to forget your diet and give in to whatevers calling your name Kno wing my fello w Americans, theres a good chance that a number of you celebrated this without kno wing about the holiday and have carried on with it extra days as well. What is junk food, you ask? Dictionary.com actually lists the phrase and denes it as, food, as potato chips or candy, that is high in calories but of little nutritional value. You might think look ing at this that as long as y ou stay away fr om potato chips or candy youre ne in this depart ment. Oh, no. Most fast food far e falls into this category, and dont for get delicious stuff like ice cr eam, pr etzels, hot dogsyou get the idea. Unfortunately for our waistlines, we have a love affair with junk food. Dont believe me? Drive down U.S. 27 and count how many fast food places line the road. Check out the park ing lots of these establishments and you will see that a lot of y our fello w citizens are in them, stufng their faces with food that exper ts say will eventually make us fatter than pigs and then kill us I am not judging. I like me a good Burger King Whopper with cheese (no pickle, please). I spend my share of mon ey in these fast food places And do I hav e to mention my addiction to chocolate? It is a shame to me that no one has managed to make the food thats good for us as tasty as the food thats bad for us. How come no one can make cauliower, for ex ample, taste like bacon? Br occoli taste like onion rings? Brussel sprouts taste like anything else? The Bible tells us our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Many of us have to admit weve been taking lousy care of our temples. And we are going to have to make drastic lifestyle choic es in order to get our bodies into any kind of healthy shape This probably means cutting back on our visits to those great-tasting fast-food joints P lease note I said cutting back, not cutting out. I think there is room in most peoples worlds for an occasional Whopper or Big Mac. Just probably not every day. Hard? It sure is. One of the problems of junk food is its so convenient. In our hurry-hurry rushrush lives it sometimes seems easier to grab something quick and tasty on the way home than to take the time to x a remotely healthy meal. And contrary to what you might have read, a balanced diet is NOT a cookie in each hand. Balance is the key to all this. Enjoy your junk food at times. Chomp into that burger! Suck down that milkshake! Lick up that ice cream cone! Just remember the healthy, if not quite as delicious, choic es available to you that will keep y ou aliv e and well. Eat up those lean meats, those colorful vegetables, those luscious fruits! Be healthy and happ y I promise if you give this a try, I wont make you eat Brussel sprouts.Laura Ware is a Sebring resi dent.

Ridge Area Arc and The Arc of Florida, non-prot organizations that advocate on behalf of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), have seen positiv e changes in these ar eas since the ADA was signed into law in 1990. J ust a few years before its passage, many Floridians with I/DD were institutionaliz ed. T oday, many are living and wor king in their community. While great strides have been made in our society, discrimination still exists. A ttitudes poor enforcement of the law, under funded pr ograms and scal difculties in state and local go v ernment budgets all contribute to the on-going need to be vigilant advocates for full inclusion and equality Ther e are still issues here in Florida. I n 1999, the U.S. S upreme Court ruled in a landmar k case O lmstead v. L.C. that unnecessary segregation of individuals with disabilities in institutions is a for m of discrimination. D espite this our state continues to house some individuals with I/DD in institutions and children in nursing homes W e hope our elected leaders will work to fund additional community-based programs, ensuring that all F lor idians are treated equally and able to liv e in the community where they belong.RHONDA BECKMANCEO, Ridge Area Arc LETTERSFROM A5 VIEWPOINTS Recently, (in a letter to the editor that ran on Wednesday, July 23) Janice Magoon criticized cell phone use in chur ch. A pparently, she has many qualms about cell phones altogether. After attending a worship ser vice in Lake Placid, something she admittedly had not done in a while, she left with this reection: someone on stage used a cell phone. And this really both ered her. So much so that she wr ote an ar ticle expressing her frustration. The cell phone user happened to be my dad. She tried to explain in the article that she did not understand cell phone speak (not sure I have heard it called that before). She also said she under stood that this person had do wnloaded some type of app. He was actually pulling up his set list. The ir ony in this situation bur ns. As she stands star ing into a screen with words pro jected onto it prompting her on the next line to sing, she is getting fr ustrated at someone who is staring at a screen with words pro jected onto it prompting him on the next song to play And this blew her away. Whatever happened to good ol fashioned hymn books (sarcasm intended)? In the letter, she made a note about Beethoven and ques tioned how he ever wr ote his F ifth Symphony. M y dad is a v olunteer harmonica play er at his church. Surely Beethoven was not br ought in for compar ison. I mean, he is pr et ty stinkin good if you ask me but he is no Beethoven. But she brings up a good question: Does technology have a place in worship? And does it have any limits? In the larger scheme of the American church, technology may have overstepped its bounds at times. There exist online services where you can create an ava tar and select what seat y ou would like to sit it, and multi-cast projection screens. Maybe we hav e pushed the limits It should be noted, though, that Paul seemed ne using culture to make the Gospel known. In Acts 17, he pr eaches a ser mon using an altar he found attributed to an unknown god. It appears P aul didn t mind using culture as long as Chr ist was pr eached. Much more would need to be said about this passage, but we do see a precedent here. Wherever the lim it may be, I think the point is clear that using a cell phone to pull up a set list on stage hardly deserves as much attention as was given. Especially in the midst of such a glor ious occasion as Church wor ship on Sunday. People for over 2,000 years hav e gather ed together to celebrate the mystery of the death and r esurr ection of this God-man Jesus. The bigger problem here is that we are no longer awed as a people by this message, but r ather offended as spectators at a seemingly petty thing. The G ospel is sur ely more captivating than that. Maybe we should all give a better listen.Guest columns are the opinion of the writ er, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staf f.

Z eigler and Leaphart were able to evacuate the vehicle and escape on foot as Watson crashed his vehicle purposefully into Zeiglers. As Zeigler and Leaphart ed on foot, Watson pursued them in his vehicle and hit Zeigler, accord ing to deputies. Watson left the scene and then par amedics w ere called. Zeigler was airlifted to a regional medical facility and was in ser ious condition S aturday after noon, the HCSO reported. C andy C rews, a relative of Leapharts, told the N ews-S un that Zeigler had suffered several broken ribs, a broken shoulder, a broken hand and that much of the skin on his back had been torn away. Law enforcement located Watsons home at 658 Raccoon Lane, and found his truck there, but when deputies tried to make contact with the resi dents of the home, no one came to the door The deputies then learned that Watson may have had sever al rearms inside his home so the SW AT team and Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) wer e called to assist at Watsons home and a sear ch warr ant was obtained. Watson eventually exited his home without further incident and was ar rested. He was booked on two counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggr av ated assault with a v ehicle Neighbors of Wat sons, who declined to be named, said W atson owned sever al guns and that this is not the rst time he has been in tr ouble with the law.

Liz Barber of the Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce said the rumblings of changes to the mall have renewed interest among the community. If theres anything new, people will ock to it, Barber said. Theres a curiosity on what happened with the mall now, lots of neighborhood chatter. When they see whats going on there, there will be more traf c. Barbers hope is that the renovations will make a difference in the local economy. Anything that gets people out and spending money is good for the economy, she said. Belk is in tune with the pulse of Sebring. Prior to doing anything, he and his people visited Sebring and talked to people around town about what people wanted. I wasnt going to buy the mall unless I gured out what made it right, he said. B.V. Belk Properties started work immediately after closing the deal to buy the mall on May 5. They have already completed the major landscaping repaired and painted the signs outside and done painting on the inside of the mall. They are starting to renovate the food court. Later this summer, they will begin to paint the outside of the mall. Belk wants to expand the mall to include more variety in retailers, more restaurants in the food court, new public bathrooms and a childrens play area. He also wants to add new faces in stores already in the mall and freshen them up to look more modern and inviting. The Cinemarx Theater inside the mall will also be renovated, Belk said, and new lighting will be installed in the parking lot. To accomplish these goals, Belk said investment management company Jones Lang LaSalle Inc. has been hired on to manage the mall. They are expected to arrive before the end of the summer.

The commission has balanced the budget for the past few years by cutting expenses, using one-time monies and tapping into our countys savings account or Fund Balance, Elwell said. After doing that for several years, weve emptied nearly all of the one-time monies, and the savings account is almost at its minimum threshold as well. The remaining options before us at our August budget workshops are to either make massive additional cuts, increase revenues through tax increases or try to nd alternative, creative solutions. Since he was elected back in 2010, Elwell has used the semi-annual meetings to both inform and receive information and ideas from the citizens on county issues. Many of those ideas have helped to stimulate discussion, and even helped to shape decisions at future commission meetings. This years budget de cit is huge, Elwell said. However, that means we have a responsibility to work even harder to help eliminate or reduce the amount of money needed to balance the budget, and Im hoping to pick up a few suggestions from the folks in attendance, as I have in the past. In addition to the budget, Elwell will have other topics of interest on the town hall agenda including the proposed extension of the onepenny infrastructure sales tax, countywide recycling efforts, the Sebring Parkway project and several more. Elwell invites citizens from all political parties, groups and ideologies to attend. The more diverse the crowd, the more viewpoints well hear, and the more information that will get shared. That one voice you may not normally hear from might well be the one with the best solution, Elwell said. As has become a tradition at Elwells town hall meetings, the commissioner will provide pizza, sodas and bottled water. For more information, contact Elwell at 863-381-5622. ELWELL FROM PAGE A1cultural resources, said Highlands Hammock Park Manager Brian Pinson. It is Pinsons latest initiative. He was tapped as the new chief at the Hammock this past February with an eye toward increasing the number of events and programs at the facility, which is one of the oldest state parks in Florida. We have all the materials and we are ready to go. Its already out on Facebook, Pinson said. We have received some pretty good initial response. Ranger Laura McMullen has been assigned to spearhead the project. As the parks Interpretive Chairperson, McMullen analyzes the parks cultural and natural resources. As the chair, Laura helps to decide what kinds of programs we do, when we are doing them and what some of our topics or themes will be, Pinson said. The idea will be to start with an afternoon program, marketed initially to home schoolers so that the initial surge will be manageable. If we get, like, 500 kids out here, we dont have the resources currently to support that kind of response, he said. Later, Pinson said the park might try to get the Junior Ranger program incorporated into school curriculum, possibly with science classes. It involves a series of worksheets and activities. Once completed, the applicant then can have their information submitted to the state of Florida. Once they become a Junior Rangers, the youngsters can get a free admission to the park, come back here and get a passport, then once they do those activities they become eligible for patches, pins and other kinds of rewards, Pinson said. In fact, the Junior Ranger program may not only be for the young. Pinson said there already has been interest around the state from some who are in their second childhood. Its targeted toward the elementary and junior high school level, he said. But we did this years ago and there were seniors groups that came in and wanted to be Junior Rangers as well. There is an initial batch of Junior Ranger program activities packets available at the Ranger Station at the entrance to the park. The rst 40 were provided by the state. After that, said Pinson, the park will foot the bill for additional materials. Reportedly, members of the Friends of Highlands Hammock citizen support group will help with that effort. We also are going to do a workshop at the park this Monday from 3-5 p.m., McMullen said. Well go through the packet and explain the program to them. The idea is to create interest in youngsters in nature and the park in general. Those wanting more information can go to the Friends of Highlands Hammock Facebook page. JUNIOR FROM PAGE A1 TALLAHASSEE (AP) Former Gov. Charlie Crist was given a climate-change lecture Friday and used the opportunity to point out that Republican Gov. Rick Scott isnt saying much about the issue. Crist, now seeking his old job as a Democrat, was considered a national Republican leader on the topic when he served from 2007 to 2011 twice holding climate-change summits that attracted international experts. The candidate said Friday that he continues to believe it is a serious issue that threatens Florida, the state most vulnerable to rising sea levels. So the half-hour presentation from Florida State University environmental science professor Jeffrey Chanton wasnt to convince Crist theres a problem. Its to try to push the dialogue, Crist said. Im convinced. Im a believer and I notice that my opponent, Rick Scott, would not meet with this wonderful scientist. Its important for people who have the opportunity to help direct policy to be openminded and to listen. Chanton and nine other scientists offered to meet with Scott on climate change after the governor de ected a question on the topic, saying he wasnt an expert. Crist immediately said he would meet with the scientists. Scott later said he would also meet with them, but he hasnt scheduled anything. I havent heard from his of ce directly, Chanton said. Im sure he hasnt gotten around to it yet. Im just waiting by the phone. Scotts campaign on Friday didnt directly answer questions about whether the governor believes climate change exists and whether humans are causing our contributing to it. Instead, the campaign twice pointed out that Scott supports restoring the Everglades and other water projects.Crist meets with climate change expert Living DangerouslyPlanes Halp.

C oleman got a hold of him, asking him What if you had a re? Who would come? Fortier said. It all came together. Then it got into my blood. Back then, Forti er said, there was not too much tr aining. They just stuck you out there. Its a different world now. The coun ty has a training ofcer, in addition w e tr ain all the time in-house. With volunteers ,you dont know exactly who will show up, so we get everyone trained so the rst on scene can begin to get things up and going. Back in the day, For tier said, reghters wore r ubber boots, a long coat and little plastic helmets. Todays bunker gear is far mor e pr otective and weighs about 50 pounds. The gear costs $2,000 per reght er. The breathing apparatus, perhaps the most life-saving addition, adds weight and costs $5,000. Another technological adv ance is the thermal imaging camera. A huge difference, Fortier said, is the use of computers and soft ware. Back in the day, w e didn t do reports, nobody cared unless there was an injury or death, then there was a pile of it. Getting Fortier to talk about how things have changed is easy to do. He doesnt have to asked about work ing with his fellow reghters, he praises their ability and teamwork including other departments and the F or est Service. Getting him to talk about himself, however, is much harder. He doesn t remember his rst re, for example. He did say his son was killed in an automobile crash. What gav e him comfor t was the way the Highway Patrol and responding reghters treated his son and the situation with respect and com passion. That s when I tied reghting with the Christian life, a Christian ministry. Its an impor tant r eason Im still doing it. He added he talks about it to giv e others comfor t. Lt. Eric Hanks, who along with his brother Lt. Jeff Hanks and father Assistant Chief Scott H anks have served with Fortier 10 or 11 years, said Hes a great guy and a great chief. Hes an asset wed hate to lose. HERO FROM PAGE A A 1 Katara Simmons/News-SunMark Fortier puts on his bunker gear Thursday at Placid Lakes Volunteer Fire Department in Lake Placid. When he started as a volunteer reghter 35 years ago, the gear was a lot less protective. BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER LAKE PLACID Sheriffs deputies have made an arrest in a bur glary that took place at the end of O ctober in Lake Placid. Deondre Mijahn Chisolm, 21, of 443 Maclyn Circle No. 5, in Lake P lacid, is facing char ges of burglary, grand theft and grand theft auto. The owner of 234 Baltimore Way was away on O ct. 30, 2013, when the burglary took place, but according to arrest reports, a neighbor saw and reported suspicious activity, including see ing a man. When H ighlands County Sheriffs deputies arrived, they found someone had gotten in thr ough a rear window over a sink. The house was ransacked, reports said., with several items thrown about.

And while the Erskine College she attended in Due West, S outh C arolina has a student body in just the 500s, considering Bloemsma was home schooled, it was quite a jump. I took some class es at SFSC, so that helped pr epar e me a little for the school setting, she said. But it was hard at rst. Oddly, it was on a trip home that opened her eyes to the transition. I got injured dur ing the fall season and missed a couple of games so I came home for a visit, Bloemsma said. And I r ealized that life had moved on and I couldnt wait to get back to school. I got to experience my rst change of seasons saw the leaves change in the fall, had a couple of snow storms, which were fun for the rst couple of days. Bloemsma is work ing toward a degree in special education and is on the fast tr ack, having tested well ahead, but shes in no rush to nish. I have my rst placement this fall al ready and could have my degr ee in thr ee years, she said. But I want to experience this for as long as I can. You only get four years of college so why rush to grow up. Ill be working for the rest of my life any way. That s as far as the whole college experience, while there is also one of the r ea-Catching up with Heather Bloemsma Dan Hoehne/News-SunFormer Sebring soccer standout Heather Bloemsma showed she has what it takes as she earned a starting spot with the Erskine College Flying Fleet team as a freshman.SEE H EE ATH EE R | A12 SSPECIAL TO THE N NEWS-S SUN TEXARKANA, ARK Add another World Series crown to the annals of S ebr ing Dixie Baseball. The S ebr ing Pitching Machine All-Stars have come so far in the past few weeks and it all culminated in winning the inaugur al D ixie AA World Series on Monday in Arkansas. They rst won the D istrict 8 Title in June earning them a spot at the state tournament in Marianna. Then, on Wednesday, July 2, the boys claimed the State Champion ship, earning them a spot in the inaugur al Dixie Youth AA World Series in Texarkana, Ar kansas. This of course lead to the team traveling more than 16 hours, but they sure made the trip worthwhile by bringing home the hardware. The team, who be came Team Florida, won the W orld Series with a record of 7-1. Team Florida competed against 10 other states and a host team. F lorida was randomly placed in pool play with teams fr om S outh Carolina, Texarkana, Al abama, Tennessee and M ississippi. O n day one, Florida was paired with Ten nessee, which was a close game fr om star t to nish. Going into the sixth inning, the score was 8-7 in favor of Tennes see. F lor idas defense held Tennessee scoreless and needed some runs on the board in the bot tom of the inning if they wanted a win. Aiden W yatt was able to single with an RBI scoring Jayden Gar rett for the tying run, then Z ain C armichael stepped up to the plate with Brody Green, the winning run, on third. He smacked one straight up the middle for a single and Green came racing in for a 9-8 Florida win. Day two didnt start off too well as Florida was defeated 16-6 by Alabama as both the teams defense and of fense seemed sluggish. B ut a little br eak and some fun during the skills completion got the team back on track for games two and three of the day. Florida was victori ous over Texarkana 6-4. The last out of the game was an ex cellent snare by third base man Clayton Evans, who r ed it o ver to rst where Ezera Jackson, doing the splits, caught the ball for the out. The next game up was against South Car olina, who was undefeated in pool play up until this point. Theoffense was r ed up and ready to go as Cody Littleeld and Jackson both had doubles with an RBI. G eor ge Sebring tripled with an RBI during the game I n the sixth inning with two outs, South Carolina sent one soar ing into the outeld. R acing into the gap in left-center, Rhett Vaughn leapt into the air for a diving catch that would end the inning and the game to str ip S outh Carolina of their undefeated record with a nal score of 12-7. O n day thr ee, Floridas last pool play game was against M ississippi. F lorida needed to win it to stay in it, and that they did. This was another close one coming down to the very end, with Florida down by two heading into the sixth. The defense did their job and held them Sebring wins first AA World Series Courtesy photoThe 2014 Sebring Pitching Machine All-Stars, also known as Team Florida, are the rst-ever Dixie AA World Series Champions. SEE CHAMPS | A11DAVIE Loosening up for their rst training camp practice, the M iami Dolphins highstepped sideways up and down the eld while House of Pains song Jump Around blared on the loud speakers. P r o Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes took in the scene and allowed himself a long yawn. With the rst game more than six weeks away, the Dolphins tempered their excite ment Friday regarding the 2014 season. E ven so, every team is undefeated and optimistic in July, and the Dolphins w er e no different as they opened camp We want to play deep into January and February, quarterback Ryan Tannehill said. Our goal is to win the division and play in the playoffs. Anything less than that is not up to our standards. Actually, thats way above the Dolphins re cent standards. They hav en t made the playoffs since 2008, which is also their most recent winning season. They needed to win only one of their nal two games last season but lost both by a com bined score of 39-7 to nish 8-8. T annehill and coach Joe Philbin are back for their third season with the team, but a woeful offensive line has been overhauled, theres more depth at receiver and running back, and the defense has the po tential to be excellent. W e want to win. Thats what were all here for, new general manager Dennis Hickey said. Were really ex cited about this team and what theyre going to be able to accomplish. S ome pr ognosticators rank the Dolphins among the NFL s worst teams, but owner Stephen Ross anticipates postseason play I dont think I start any season without wanting to make the playoffs, Ross said. If you dont have those expectations, you shouldnt be in the game. You own a team because you want to create a winner. On a 90-degree day, Philbin was already on the hot seat, and Ross was asked if the coach must make the playoffs to keep his job. Im not going to say here he has to, because I can understand what the headlines would be, Ross said. I like Joe Philbin very much. Im expecting Joe Phil bin to be here a long Dolphins talking playoffs as training camp beginsSEE MIAMI | A11 MCT photoRyan Tannehill and the Dolphins have high hopes as training camp gets underway. a,: fit.` ;<`+. -: .'1 1 1fro,NF. ; lll'=1.

www.newssun.comSunday, July 27, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A11 scoreless in the top of the inning and Austin Joiner started the offense off in the bottom half with a double. Three straight singles followed, including a zinger that was hit into left eld by Brad Benton. Jackson then came up to bat with the bases loaded with the tying run on third and winning run on second. Jackson hit a grounder to the shortstop and took off running. Just when he thought he would be out with the throw, the rst baseman was unable to make the catch. The crowd soon erupted as the two runs scored to end the game and move Florida into the number one spot for pool play and advancing them to the double elimination bracket. The teams remaining for double elimination included Florida, North Carolina, Arkansas and South Carolina. First up in bracket play for Florida was Arkansas. In a nerve-racking game where Arkansas scored three runs in the sixth in an attempt to come back, Floridas defense stiffened and they held on for a 6-5 win. They moved on to one nal game of the evening against North Carolina who was undefeated in both pool and bracket play. Florida jumped out with the lead as Brody Green and Chase Sevigny had key hits with an RBI each. Florida led 13-3 after the fourth and the game was ended with the mercy rule. Florida had no losses in bracket play which earned them a bye to the Championship game, with the Carolinas squaring off the following day to determine Floridas opponent. On Championship day, North Carolina held strong and sent South Carolina home as the third-place team. And now it was time for the grand nale, what everyone had come here for, the Championship game. Florida was rested and ready to go and their con dence was shining through. A win would mean they were Champions and a loss would force the if necessary game. A survey of the boys was unanimous that they wanted to end this in one game. North Carolina had home eld advantage, but Floridas offense was strong in the rst managing two runs against a erce defense. Floridas defense was then on point as they put away the rst three batters that came to the box. By the end of the fth inning, the score had only increased to 4-2 in favor of Florida and in the top of the sixth, Florida managed one more run on the board to nudge it up to a 5-2 margin. Florida needed to hold North Carolina to two or less runs to avoid a second game. The rst ball of the bottom of the sixth was a grounder to Garrett at short. He made a perfect throw to Jackson at rst for the initial out. Ball two was an in eld y that went straight into the glove of Sebring like it was a magnet. The third batter then hit a high pop up over the head of the pitcher, Wyatt. He made the catch for the nal out and win, sending the boys into a wild celebration, raising Wyatt to their shoulders. Team Florida had accomplished something that noone else can ever say they did they were now the very rst ever Dixie Youth AA World Series Champions. A city celebration is being planned with a possible parade of the boys down Commerce Avenue on Tuesday, August 5. The boys would love to see as many people as possible come out to support them. Team updates can be found on their Facebook page at www.facebook. com/2014SebringPMAllStars. The team would like to thank everyone that has supported them. Many donations were made to help get them to both the state tournament and the World Series and they are very appreciative of the generosity and support.

CHAMPS FROM PAGE A9 time. But every year you want to see improvement. The Dolphins desperately need a better locker-room culture after a troubled relationship between offensive linemen Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin led to a bullying scandal that sent the franchise reeling. Incognito and Martin are gone, and the Dolphins brought in outside consultants for training sessions with players to foster better leadership. Center Mike Pouncey, implicated in the scandal, said the culture will be much healthier this season. Coach Philbin and Mr. Ross have done a bunch of things to change that, Pouncey said. Right now were heading in the right direction. Everyone has bought into the way we want it done around here. The start of camp came as Pouncey and his brother Maurkice were named in a lawsuit led by three people who said the twins attacked them at a Miami Beach nightclub July 12. The Pounceys attorney has said the brothers were not involved in any altercation. As anticipated, Pouncey (hip) and running back Knowshon Moreno (knee) began camp on the physically unable to perform list. Both worked on the side Friday, and while Pouncey is expected to miss at least a couple of games, he said hes ahead of schedule in his recovery. Moreno, who signed a $3.275 million, oneyear contract after a breakout season with Denver last year, is expected to join practice sometime during camp. Every other player passed his conditioning test. Defensive end Dion Jordan practiced and will be allowed to play in exhibition games, even though he has been suspended for the rst four games of the season after testing positive for a stimulant prohibited by the NFL. Receiver Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson were back on the eld after recovering from knee injuries last season. Koa Misi remained at middle linebacker after moving there from the outside as an offseason experiment deemed successful. The rst practice was predictably sloppy. With Pouncey out, quarterback Ryan Tannehill dropped at least three snaps. He mis red deep to Mike Wallace a frequent occurrence last year the rst time he threw long, but they later connected on a 40-yard throw that brought a cheer from spectators. While the stands were only half full, season-ticket sales are up, and the rst three home games are projected to be sellouts. Miami wants to support a winner, Ross said. We start winning, well have a lot more support, and there will be a lot more enthusiasm. ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_ NFL MIAMI FROM PAGE A9 DENNIS PASSA ASSOCIATED PRESS GLASGOW, Scotland New Zealand extended its Commonwealth Games winning streak in rugby sevens to 26 matches with a 39-0 win Saturday over Canada to open the competition at Ibrox Stadium, the 115-yearold home of Rangers football club. The teams met in the Glasgow nal of the IRB sevens tournament in May, when New Zealand again dominated 54-7. There were a number of other one-sided matches early Saturday in the two-day, 16-team tournament Wales beat Malaysia 52-0, South Africa blanked Trinidad and Tobago 36-0 and Australia defeated Sri Lanka 62-7. More than 185,000 sevens tickets have been sold, with all medal matches sold out on Sunday. New Zealand has won all four previous Commonwealth Games golds. Rugby sevens will debut as an Olympic sport in 2016 at Rio de Janeiro. Ben Lam scored two tries for New Zealand. It was great to keep them at zero points, Lam said. We got on top of them early, pushed and kept the press on them. Fiji, which has won two silver medals and a bronze at the Commonwealth Games, will not be competing. Although the country was partially reinstated to the Commonwealth after a promise to hold democratic elections, the decision came too late for organizers to revise the draws to include the South Paci c island team. ___ ENGAND WINS TEAM TRIATHLON: England continued its domination of Commonwealth Games triathlon when it won the mixed teams relay Saturday, with South Africa second and Australia taking bronze. Olympic champion Alistair Brownlee and Jodie Stimpson, who won the individual mens and womens races on Thursday, were members of the four-person England team.

And that she did. W e had an intrasquad game during the pr eseason for the coaches to evaluate us and I won the MVP of that game, she said. I came in with a recruiting class of 11 players and four of us ended up star ting. It was tough for us as a team at rst though because there were girls coming from very different types of soccer, Bloems ma continued. There w er e two girls from England, two from Australia and from dif ferent states, so it kind of took us a while to come together and gur e out how best to play with each other There were also some physical match ups that taught her some new things. In high school, I would only have match-up problems with some schools, like McKeel Acade my, which had bigger girls, she said. In college, everyones bigger. I mean I m str ong and a physical player, but there are disadvantag es to being 5-2. B ut B loemsma just took it on as another challenge to get better, work harder and make those match ups more even. It was humbling, but it showed me what to do to catch up. And with her rst season, and year away at school behind her, Bloemsma is eagerly looking ahead. We have another re cruiting class of eight girls coming in that w ell be working into the team and how we play, she said. I have a core group of friends there and its been tough this summer. Its nice to be home, but Im anxious to get back. Its been an adven ture, Ive grown up a lot and lear ned some life lessons through stepping out alone, she added.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, July 27, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: I am a woman in my 30s. Every morning I walk my dog in the park near my house. Each morning I see the same maintenance man in the park and he stares at me in a way that makes me uncomfortable. I have tried saying Good morning, but he doesnt reply and just continues to stare. I dont think I should have to stop frequenting the park because this creepy man works there. Is there a way I can confront him about his staring without making the situation more uncomfortable? DOG WALKER IN SAN FRANCISCO DEAR DOG WALKER: Has it occurred to you that the man may be mute, or perhaps doesnt speak English? Talk to some of the other women who frequent the park and ask if this happens with them, too. There may be an explanation for his behavior, and he may be perfectly harmless. If you are still uneasy after that, contact the parks department. But Id hate to see someone lose his job who might be concerned only about whether youre picking up after your dog. DEAR ABBY: When my son visits me, he stays in a hotel with his family instead of in our home. When he visits his parentsin-law, he stays in their home. His inlaws would consider it disrespectful if he didnt. He used to stay here before he got married. His siblings and I feel hurt and disrespected, and we also think it is inappropriate. When his siblings visit, they stay at our home. My wife died 19 months ago. I know if she were here, he wouldnt even think of staying anywhere else. How should I (and my other chil dren) handle this? PROUD DAD IN NEVADA DEAR PROUD DAD: The important thing is that they are visiting and sharing good times with you, not where they stay. Im sure they have their reasons for wanting to sleep at the hotel. At the end of the evening, they may crave some private conversation. Or, your daughter-inlaw may feel uncomfortable now that your wife is gone. The way I would handle it is to simply ask them why, without being confrontational. DEAR ABBY: When I attended the recent funeral of a family member, I saw someone walk up to the open casket and begin taking photos of the deceased. Then, if that wasnt enough, the person asked the deceaseds caregivers to pose by the body! I feel it was in extremely poor taste. Am I wrong? I know Ill see the photographer again at future funerals. BAFFLED IN SOUTH CAROLINA DEAR BAFFLED: In some cultures it is not offensive to take photos of people in their coffins; it is accepted, and relatives cherish these last mementos of their loved one. If you follow that logic, then its understandable that having a photo of the deceased with the people who cared for him or her at the end would not only NOT be in poor taste, but would be desir able. I dont advise challenging the photographer unless youre sure everyone else feels as you do.

They specialize in wrapping full-size graphics onto hard surfaces for pure aesthetic beauty or for business purposes. Wrapping in this case means colorful, imaginative graphics designs printed on vinyl. Then they are laminated and laid onto a trailer, a car or anything else with a hard surface. After the initial Eureka moment, the Dalkes spent three months preparing to open their new venture. They sought education in Fort Lauderdale, at a 3M installer training class that taught them how to install wrap onto trailers, concrete, brick, motor vehicles and anything else they can wrap a sign to, according to their Facebook page. The set up of their own space proved to be more time consuming. After moving into a location on North Ridgewood Drive in January, they had to acquire the equipment to produce and laminate their designs which they did one piece at a time, until, in February, they nally had everything they needed. Even then they werent done. To ensure that they knew how to use every piece of equipment they bought, the Dalkes also brought in technicians to teach them how to use it. This process took three days, but once it was nished, the Dalkes were nally feeling condent in their graphic-designing abilities. Since opening, the monthly Wine Walks in downtown Sebring have proved an asset in gaining customers. Especially since, as Liz admitted, B&E Graphics does not do much advertising. The advertising, however, is done for them in the form of the colorful, exuberant graphics that adorn customers vehicles. Sometimes, these graphics are merely for show, such as one they did for an individuals PT Cruiser: they made his hood a shiny chrome color that looked better against the black exterior of the rest of the car. Other times, they do work to make business vehicles and carts more attractive. Liz relayed one story of a food cart owner who was pleased with the graphic they wrapped onto his cart. His excitement (over the graphic) made me realize, wow, this is all real, were running a business now, Liz said. Their excitement makes it all worth it. B&E Graphics is located at 104 N. Ridgewood Drive, and can be reached at 863-385-9727. They are open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.B&E Graphics & Signs ready to spread art around Sebring By LARRY GRIFFINSTAFF WRITER LARRY GRIFFIN/NEWS-SUN PHOTOLiz and Brian Dalke stand outside their B&E Graphics location, with a ashy sign sure to draw many wandering eyes in exactly their intention. CHICAGO (AP) Fast food workers say theyre prepared to escalate their campaign for higher wages and union representation, starting with a national convention in suburban Chicago where more than 1,000 workers are expected to discuss the future of the effort that has spread to dozens of cities in less than two years. About 1,300 workers will attend sessions Friday and Saturday at an expo center in Villa Park, Illinois, where theyll be asked to do whatever it takes to win $15-an-hour wages and a union, said Kendall Fells, organizing director of the national effort and a representative of the Service Employees International Union. The union has been providing nancial and organizational support to the fast-food protests that began in late 2012 in New York City and have included daylong strikes and a protest outside this years McDonalds Corp. shareholder meeting that resulted in more than 130 arrests. We want to talk about building leadership, power and doing whatever it takes depending on what city theyre in and what the moment calls for, said Fells, adding that the rampedup actions will be more high prole and could include everything from civil disobedience to intensied efforts to organize workers. I personally think we need to get more workers involved and shut these businesses down until they listen to us, perhaps even by occupying the restaurants, said Cherri Delisline, a 27-year-old single mother from Charleston, South Carolina, who has worked at McDonalds for 10 years and makes $7.35 an hour. Delisline said she and her four girls live with her mother, but the family still has difculty paying utilities and the mortgage while providing for her children. She said she has not been to a doctor in two years and does not get paid if she stays home sick. To have a livable wage, its going to need to be $15 an hour, said Delisline. We make the owners enough money that they have houses and cars and their kids are taken care of. Why dont (they) make sure I can be able to do the same for my kids and my family? she said. The campaign comes as President Barack Obama and many other Democrats across the country have attempted to make a campaign issue out of their call to increase the federal and state minimum wages. The current federal minimum wage of $7.25 an hour translates to about $15,000 a year for someone working 40 hours a week, though many fast-food workers get far fewer hours. Obama and others have called for increasing it to $10.10. Fast food workers say even thats not enough because most people working in the industry now are adults with children, rather than teenagers earning pocket money. The restaurant industry has argued that a $15 hourly wage could lead to business closings and job cuts. A McDonalds spokeswoman did not return a message seeking comment. But the National Restaurant Association said Thursday that increasing wages to $15 will not solve income inequality and that the campaign was an attempt by unions to boost dwindling membership. Instead of demonizing an industry that opens doors for workers of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels, the focus should be on nding better solutions to lift individuals out of poverty, including policies that increase education and job training, said Scott DeFife, the associations executive vice president of policy and government affairs. Turnout for the protests has varied, but theyve struck a chord at a time when the gap between the countrys rich and poor has widened. Executive pay packages also are coming under greater scrutiny, including that of McDonalds CEO Don Thompson, who was given a pay package worth $9.5 million last year. Nevertheless, shareholders this year overwhelmingly voted in favor of McDonalds executive compensation practices.Fast food workers prepare to escalatewage demands 3064397 rfnrtbrfntbtb nfrnntnbnnrrnnfnbntnn frtnrrnntfrbbnt rrfnnttb brrf trbbn ftnnnbnnrr nrrntbbbnb rfnrtbtbtr rf ntbtbn 3067487 CENTRAL FL HEARING SERVICES Dr. Andrea LivingstonBoard Certied Doctor of Audiology863-386-9111rfn tbrb b 3058664 theJ fI I I I i71i I 1 1 I"I I I I I'I' I I I I I I I I I7111 I II' I I I I II I 1 ISOUTHFLORIDAYOUR EXPERIENCE BEGINS THIS FALL.REGISTER NOW THROUGH AUG. 21Talk to an Advisor View the Schedule of Classes:about SFSC Programs: www.southflorida.edu453-6661 Financial Aid is Available to Those Who halify.South Florida State College is an equal access/equal opportunity institution.South Florida State College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges(SACSCOC) to award the associate and baccalaureate degree.

It is deeper than the ocean, higher than the heavens, wider than the ends of the earth and unfailing. Because of who he is, his love is matchless, sacricial, protective, unending and beyond our human comprehension. His love is painted across the heavens in each morning sunrise. He repeats this majesty in a new way in the evening sunset. Then he hangs the curtain of stars and the extraordinary light of the moon to brighten the darkest sky. Flowers, trees, mountains, streams and waterfalls beckon us to receive his loving care as do the animals. He expresses himself through the love of spouses and children, parents and other extended families and friends. A simple smile from a stranger can hug us on a dreary day. And because of who he is, we can become all that he has created us to be. Today is my par ents 68th wedding anniversary! In 1946, two vibrant and loving people united in holy matrimony promising to love and cherish in sickness and in health till death would part them. Together they raised my brother and myself and taught us by example about love, devotion, trust and consideration. Theirs is a 1 Corinthians 13 love. Does that mean they were always patient and kind; never envious; always humble; never proud or rude; unselsh at all times; etc.? No. They werent perfect. But, most importantly, they walked hand in hand with the Lord seeking to emulate I Corinthians love. For that to happen, there were tests along the way. In each of those, they turned together to God and sought his direction. Today, the tests continue with Mom, 92 and Dad, 95. Dads steps are faltering and his mind and speech are slower. Mom, in turn, has issues with her eyes and has partially lost sight in one eye. Yet, her spirited approach to life keeps Dad cared for and content while she continues to keep their home and prepare their meals. They are an incredible duo to watch even now. Love bears all things, says I Corinthians 13: 7, NKJV. Believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. We have watched how Gods amazing love has infused their marriage with keeping power, belief, hope, trust and endurance. And, so, we can agree with verse 8, Love never fails. Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad. We celebrate Gods amazing love demonstrated in your marriage.

(AP) The American Civil Liberties Union in Michigan and two other groups led a federal lawsuit Wednesday seeking an injunction against a Michigan citys ban on an atheist booth in a municipal building. The groups said the Detroit suburb of Warren lets a church group run a prayer station, distribute religious materials, discuss religious beliefs and pray with visitors in a City Hall atrium but refuses to let atheist Douglas Marshall use the same space. Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the Freedom from Religion Foundation also are part of the lawsuit in U.S. District Court that says Marshalls request in April to install a reason station was rejected by Mayor Jim Fouts. Once the government opens public space for use by private groups, it cannot pick and choose who can use the space based on the content of their message or whether public ofcials agree with that message, said Dan Korobkin, ACLU of Michigan deputy legal director, adding The city cannot allow speech supportive of religion and reject speech supportive of atheism. Fouts told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Marshalls reason station would be diametrically opposed to prayer. The city has certain values that I dont believe are in general agreement with having an atheist station, nor in general agreement with having a Nazi station or Ku Klux Klan station, Fouts said. I cannot accept or will not allow a group that is disparaging of another group to have a station here. The city of Warren is just north of Detroit in Macomb County, and has a population of about 140,000 people. The city doesnt endorse the prayer station, but has allowed religious groups to set up tables in the atrium for several years, according to Fouts. They dont walk up to people, Fouts said. They are just there if someone wishes to seek solace or guidance from them. The atheist station does not serve that purpose. It will not contribute to community values or helping an individual out. In December 2011, Warren prohibited the Madison, Wisconsinbased Freedom from Religion Foundation from displaying an anti-religion sign next to a nativity scene at City Hall. A federal judge later ruled Fouts had authority to bar the poster because he felt it was antagonistic and would cause hostility. The judge also said city ofcials were not excluding a religious group or a non-religious group. Fouts said the issue is not about his faith or one faith. The city allows Ramadan displays during the Islamic holy month. Im a Christian but I believe in freedom of religion for all groups, he said.Rejected atheist booth in city hall draws lawsuitCROSSWORD SOLUTION ................................................ ... .......................DOG I T O C T O P I C A T C A L L SO P E R A W A I V E S A R B O R E A LB R E A K I N G N E W S R E A L E A S YB A N N A I N I N J E I DE J A I RU S H A T T E R S P R I E D D E L IO S H S A O N E D U R A N T EG R A T I P P I N G P O I N G OL U N T N E R D D O N Q U IC I N N A M O N U P S I D E H U R LS T NI F I S H I N G L I N E S A E N S T I E T 0 N O L A N B O S S AE N T S S I T T N G B U L L T ME R G O A C R O S S E N T I T I E SN A A N L O A S O N S R O N ET R R O U S I N G C H E E R A N T E B I G G E S T S O R E S N E GU R L S A N T O N S T O N E M A NM A M I E P A T E A S P R A C I N EA M E N A M E N P A R T I N G W 0 R D SR I N G R O A D A P I E C E A L E R TI N T O N A T E D 0 0M E D T I D E S

B6 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, July 27, 2014 www.newssun.com WASHINGTON (AP) Nearly 300 passengers perish when their plane is shot out of the sky. Airlines suspend ights to Israels largest airport after rocket attacks. An airliner crashes during a storm, and yet another disappears. Aviation has suffered one of its worst weeks in memory, a cluster of disasters spanning three continents. Industry analysts and safety experts shake their heads at the seeming randomness of the tragedies, saying they can nd no common themes. Nor do they think the events indicate that ying is suddenly becoming less safe. Less than one in 2 million ights last year ended in an accident in which the plane was damaged beyond repair, according to the International Air Transport Association. That includes accidents involving cargo and charter airlines as well as scheduled passenger ights. One of the things that makes me feel better when we look at these events is that if they all were the same type event or same root cause then you would say theres a systemic problem here, but each event is unique in its own way, said Jon Beatty, president and CEO of the Flight Safety Foundation, an airline industry-supported nonprot in Alexandria, Virginia, that promotes global aviation safety. But Beatty said he also nds the disaster cluster a cold reminder that airline accidents are likely to increase because the industry is growing, especially in developing countries. The more ights there are, the more potential for accidents, he noted. The misfortunes began July 18 when Malaysia ight 17 was shot down over eastern Ukraine with 298 people on board. Its still uncertain who red the missile that destroyed the plane, but Ukrainian ofcials have blamed ethnic Russian rebels and U.S. ofcials have pointed to circumstantial evidence that suggests that may be the case. The shootdown doubled Malaysia Airlines misfortunes this year. The mysterious disappearance of Malaysia Flight 370 with 239 people on board in March combined with the destruction of Flight 17 added up to more than twice the total global airline fatalities in all of last year, which was the industrys safest year on record. Ascend, a global aviation industry consulting rm headquartered in London, counted 163 fatalities in 2013 involving airliners with 14 seats or more. On Wednesday, a mere seven days after the shootdown over Ukraine, a TransAsia Airways plane crashed in Taiwan in stormy weather trailing a typhoon, killing 48 passengers, injuring 10 others and crew, and injuring ve more people on the ground. The next day an Air Algerie ight with 116 passengers and crew disappeared during a rainstorm while en route from Burkina Faso to Algerias capital. The plane was operated for the airline by Swiftair, a Spanish carrier. A Burkina Faso ofcial said late Thursday that wreckage of the plane had been found in Mali. Together, the disasters have the potential to push airline fatalities this year to over 700 the most since 2010. And 2014 is still barely half over. With three tragedies in such quick succession, many people will, understandably, be asking questions about aviation safety, Tony Tyler, director general of the International Air Transport Association, whose members include most airlines that y internationally, said in a statement. He sought to assure the public that despite the events of the past seven days, ying is safe. Aviation industry analyst Robert W. Mann Jr. said he doesnt expect the recent events to deter travelers from ying. Theyre all tragic, but the global air travel consumer has a very short memory and its highly localized to their home markets where they y, he said. The places where these things are happening, 99 percent of passengers never go to or y to. ... This isnt a headline issue for most people, and thats why people continue to y despite the headlines. Airline passengers interviewed by The Associated Press said they werent overly concerned about their safety. It could be happening every day or never again, said Bram Holshoff, a Netherlands traveler at Berlins Tegel Airport. Its a bit much that it happened three times this week, but for me nothing will change. Lam Nguyen, 52, of Tahiti, who was headed to Los Angeles from Paris Charles de Gaulle airport, said he considers ying a very safe mode of transportation. And if it has to happen, it will happen. It doesnt prevent me from taking planes, he said. The shootdown of ight 17 has raised questions about whether airlines and the aviation authorities in their home countries are adjusting ight routes quickly enough when unrest in troubled parts of the world threatens the safety of planes. But aviation safety consultant John Cox, a former airline pilot and accident investigator, said he sees no connection between that event and the other disasters. I dont know how you could respond to anything when there is not a commonality of events, he said. We dont have a full understanding of the Taiwan accident and certainly not on the Air Algerie plane. Cox attributed the Federal Aviation Administrations decision Tuesday to prohibit ights to Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv to hypersensitivity to the possibility of another shootdown. The FAA issued the order after a Hamas rocket exploded about a mile from the airport. The prohibition was lifted 36 hours later.
