Billy Gorman has bicycled in two Brotherhood Rides including from Naples to New York City in 2011 for the somber 10th anniversary of 9/11. But Gorman said his third Ride which will be just around part of Southwest Florida likely will be more dif cult than the 22-day, 1,734mile trek to the Big Apple. Fallen CCSO Sgt. Mike Wilson is one of four law enforcement of cers from around the state that will be honored during the 2014 Ride, which begins today in Naples, and ends Monday in Port Charlotte. The riders will spend Sunday night in Lake Placid. This is a ride you dont want to take, Gorman said. Its different to ride for (fallen) of cers you knew about or read about or heard about. But this is one I was actually involved with, and on scene with. Its tough. Wilson was shot and killed while responding to a domestic disturbance call the evening of Aug. 5, 2013, in Port Charlotte. This Ride is just another way to keep the memory alive, Gorman said. Theres no other ride like this. The Brotherhood Ride is an annual tradition founded by North Naples Fire Lt.

BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT AVON PARK They have appeared at a number forums to give their platforms and positions as well as to meet the voters, but the questions were a bit different Wednesday evening when District 5 School Board candidates came to the Avon Park Lakes Baptist Church for an hourlong forum. Some of the questions tonight may be a bit spiritual in nature, said Pastor George Hall. Hall, who served as the emcee of the event, is a businessman in the City of Charm and a former Avon Park city councilman as well. The round-robin questioning started with an identi cation of each candidates denomination and church attendance. Jill Compton said she had grown up in Lake Placids Memorial United Methodist Church but currently attends sporadically; Clinton Culverhouse identi ed himself as a Baptist, saying he now serves as a deacon at Grace Bible Church; William Pep Hutchison declared himself a lifelong Episcopalian and attendee at St. Agnes Episcopal Church in Sebring; Trevor Murphy indicated he was raised in and actively attends Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Avon Park; while William Tres District 5 candidates quizzed at church BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING More than 100 residents packed the Grand Ballroom in the Kenilworth Lodge Tuesday evening to get an update on county activities and to make known their opinions on a number of different local issues. By my count we had a high of 105, County Commissioner Don Elwell said of his seventh town hall meeting. The rst one there were 21 people, so this is pretty good. Elwell rst gave a budget lesson, discussing where the countys money come from, where it goes and ending the segment by discussing a looming budget de cit he put at $10,863,574. He asked those in attendance how they thought the county had arrived at a place where year-end budget shortfalls had become a regular problem. Among the ideas were that the county had overspent during the boom years and that the bust had gone longer than anticipated. Elwell also polled the crowd on places where they thought commissioners could trim the budget. Why are we still in the housing business? asked resident Paul Hinnman. Other questions revolved around the Elwell town hall draws 100-plus ELWELLSEE FORUM | A4SEE DERBY | A6SEE HALL | A6SEE RIDE | A4Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 192750 NEWS-SUN T 1s stletv-'sA,pNpR *DEDICATION O PR'OFB;with, erah(94.R'1D'Ewww.v.BrotherhoodRide.

After a workshop meeting Monday be tween the Board and the Av on P ark City Council, Jeff Schmucker planner with the Centr al F lorida Regional Planning Council said he could include denitions of car wash and auto detailing facil ities and update regulations to govern their appearance and oper a tion, especially with respect to trafc ow and water use/runoff. The issue came up with P&Z on J une 10 when Calvin Arjona and Nicholas Caruso of Xclusive Detailing asked to set up a per mitted car wash and auto detailing oper ation under a metal carpor t in the parking lot at Sunoco gasoline station at U.S. 27 and Hal M cR ae Boulevard. That business didnt have any denition or guidelines in the city code. Ed Dickerson, P&Z Board member, said the board wanted to hear from city coun cil members rst before making any decisions. Schmucker pr esent ed a draft code making a car wash and auto detailing business a per mitted use under the city s C-2 land use categor y as an accessory use at a lling station or as a stand-alone facility S tand-alone facilities would have to comply with requirements for par king, customer lineup and par king lot trafc ow, Schmucker said. Also, there would be a requirement to re cycle water and have r unoff o w into a catch basin system, instead of running directly to storm drains. Mostly, he needed to know if the city coun cil would allow a metal awning/carport str uc ture. Council members said metal would be allowed, but gave the recommendation with some grumbling. B oar d Chairman Roger Gurganus said if the city goes that direction, other v endors may want to set up fruit/ v egetable stands or sell rugs at local lling stations. W e wanted to come up with a workable situation, Gurganus said. Vice Chair J ean J or dan said she would be worried about fr uit v endors popping up if the city appro v es changes to allow a metal structure, especially in the citys histor ic distr ict. However, Council man Garrett Anderson didn t expect that to be a problem right now. If people come and ask (and) if they want fruit stands, well deal with that when it comes to it. When asked, City At torney Gerald Buhr said the city can t appr ove metal carports as acceptable for car washes and nothing else: If the str ucture is approved for the city, its accepted for all land uses. City Manager Julian Deleon said that would depend on the citys aesthetic vision for the downtown and com mercial areas. Y ou ve got to think about the unintended consequences, Buhr said. Schmucker said a carport structure at an existing lling sta tion would probably already meet drainage requirement, since the lling station would hav e a basin system. Any stand-alone facility would need to set up a drainage and catch basin system, he said.City to rework code regarding car washes Phil Attinger/News-SunCalvin Arjona of Xclusive Detailing (left) at a workshop on Monday shares site plans for placing a detailing business in a carport on the site of Sunoco gas station in Avon Park. City Council members Terry Heston (from left), Parke Sutherland and Deputy Mayor Brenda Giles looked over the plans, but asked planners with the Central Florida Regional Planning Council to update city code on car washes before saying whether or not they could approve him putting an establishment in at the U.S. 27 location.

SNAPs S HOTs S LO cC A lL NEWS BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING Otis Williams, original member of The Temptations, says the band learned early on to always perform My Girl, arguably the groups most popular hit. The audience went crazy when we didnt sing it, Wil liams said. It s on the playlist for their performance this November at the 20th annual Florida Hospital Foundation Gala, he said. Foundation ofcers and G ala or ganizers announced The Temptations would be the Gala s lead act during a press conference Friday morning. Williams speaking longdistance fr om California, said The Temptations look for ward to returning to Florida, and Gala par ticipants should expect to see a well-choreographed show and to come away entertained. This is ex citing for us because we love what we do, Williams said. B eing the last living mem ber of that legacy, he said hes enjoy ed br inging on younger band members to pass on The T emptations music to the next generation. Its been a teaching experi ence for me, Williams said. When he and the original T emptations started recording in 1961, they had no idea the band and its music would still be popular and in gr eat demand now, having stood the test of time, something Williams attributes to making music their living instead of a hobby, and the mentors at Motown Records who taught them to be professional. It wasnt until they recorded the Smokey Robinson writ ten-and-produced song The Way Y ou Do the things You Do that they became stars. Soon after, another Smokey Robinson song, My Girl, would catapult them further. Williams said its his favorite, and that Robinson has it for a ringtone. Mike Rouse, co-chair of the Gala, said the concert will take place at 8 / p.m. N ov. 13. Jamie Bateman, executive di rector of the Florida Hospital Foundation, said seats will sell for $35, $40 and $45 in the S outh F lorida State College Performing Arts Center, with the rst two center-section r o ws 30 seats selling at $75 to ultimate fans. Bateman said half the concer t seats will go to dinner at tendees and the other half to the general public Tickets go on sale Monday by calling 863-402-5525 or by visiting the Foundation ofce at Flor ida Hospital Heartland Medical Center. R ouse said people attending the banquet on N o v. 13 will have a social hour at 5 / p.m. and dinner at 6 / p.m. in the SFSC gymnasium, converted into a ballroom. A silent auction that night is gathering donations said Jean Lund, auction organizer. Even with these hard eco nomic times, I very rarely get a no, L und said. Kim Heintz, organizer of the Gala golf tournament, said sign-in will be 7:30 / a.m. N ov. 14 with a shotgun start on the Sun N Lake Golf and Country Club Deer Run and Turtle Run golf courses. Ear ly registration begins Monday by calling (863) 402-5525. Each y ear sells out last year had 172 players, she said and she hopes this year sells out, too. Bateman said the Bill Jar rett Ford 5K/10K Fun Run will be No v 16, on two separate route behind the hospital in Sebring. Early $20 registration will open Monday online, only at www .or idahospital.com/heartland/giving-back, and end Nov. 12, said Christen J ohnson, foun dation development coordinator.

Do you like to be in the outdoors? Do y ou need a way to get more exercise? Are you striving to eat a healthier diet. Do you enjoy do-it-your self projects? Wish you could tur n back the clock to those days when you were a farmer? Soon, folks in Highlands County can do these things b y joining in the new C om munity Garden enterprise Growing in the Hear tland announced this week by the local Soil and W ater Conservation District. Gr ants hav e been won, acreage has been measured, the dirt has been prepared (grass removed and plots leveled), a water ing system arranged, a picnic area cr eat ed, a produce wash stand constructed and guidelines for par ticipation hav e been spelled out. The future gar den is just south of the Bert Harris Agricultural Center and the 25-by12-foot plots have been lined out. Any resident of Highlands County can sign up for a plot once he or she has signed the partici pation agreement. The plot can be used for v egetables owers, herbs or ornamentals, but the planting, tending and harvesting will be done by each individual par ticipant. Along with the shar ed picnic ar ea and wash stand, there will be a shared, safe facility for storing some basic hand tools, equipment etc., provided by the community gar den, making it handy and conv enient for the gar deners. The Community Garden concept has been popular in numerous areas of the countr y and befor e launching the idea, Highlands Soil & Wa ter Conservation District Executive Director Susie Bishop visited Gainesville Or lando and Panama City to explore their gar dens, gathering information and knowledge from what they have lear ned. F rom these sources, she learned that agricultur al business es and related agencies sponsor grants to help underwr ite the cost of establishing and maintaining such projects. Bishop applied for and was awarded a grant from the Heart of Florida (Florida Di vision) of the American Planning Association in the amount of $ 1,000 for start-up costs of a community garden. This project would not have been possible without the support of the elected ofcials who serve on the D istr ict B oard of Supervisors Dr. John Causey, Pamela Fentress, Ida Jackson, Audrey Vickers, Jackie Bailey and Supervisorelect Scott Kirouac, the Highlands County Board of County Com missioners and the City of Sebr ing, Bishop said. Additionally, various businesses and individuals have donated labor materials and supplies for the establishment of the gar den with mor e is expected in coming weeks. After sharing the project to the lo cal Master Gardeners group, several of their members were quick to volunteer assistance and become mentors for anyone who needs their ex pertise and encour agement. Ther e is genu ine value in the act of planting something, cultiv ating it and then reaping the product, County Extension Director Les Bucum said. S uccessful gar dening is something you accomplish with y our own hands, plus you have the reward of fresh food or beautiful plants (or) owers. The cost of a plot is a nominal rental fee of $10 per six months of gardening. This means that winter vis itors will be welcome to be active in the gar den during their stays in sunny Flor ida. B ish op noted that she has often heard r etir ed farmers speak of missing their farming activities back home and hopes this will ll that v oid for them. R ecently, a work day took place to complete preparation of the garden site with irr igation being installed within the month.

Shortly after that, according to Highlands C ounty S her iffs Ofce reports, Eli Clay How ard Sr., 29, came running over from the other unit of the duplex into their home, and told his neighbors It was an accident. Dont call the police. They did anyway. Howard is now facing three felony charges of shooting a deadly mis sile into a dwelling. Ho war d lives in Unit A of a single-story duplex at 1206 S. Verona Av e in Avon Park. His neighbors are in Unit B, arrest reports said. The gunshots came through the wall from Howards bedroom, into and through Unit B at approximately 8:21 / p.m. M ay 30, re ports said. The couple was in the immediate area where the shots came through. Right after H o ward came running over explaining it was an accident, he then offered to x the holes in the walls the victims said. H owever, Howard im mediately ran out, reports said. Repor ts did not state what type of gun was used, only that it was unknown.Man accused of shooting through neighborss home BY LARR YY GRIFFIN STAFF W WRITER AVON PARK The City of Avon Park wants to purchase the Brickell Building, but will have to wait a little while longer after the issue was tabled by the city council on Mon day. The city initially tried to pur chase the parking lot of the Brickell Building at 2 East Main S tr eet for downtown parking pur poses they thought the increased par king for the multiple businesses on Main Street could only be a positive thing for downtown trafc. However, the bank r efused to sell the par king lot without the Brickell Building also included in the purchase The pr ice of the Brickell Building at that time was over $1 million, but in the intervening years, it has r eceded to a little o v er $370,000. Along with the increased parking, the city will be gaining access to a historically important building with 26,000 squar e feet of space to be utiliz ed for purposes to be determined later. Upon inspecting the building, the city de termined that the rst oor was not in bad shape, while the second oor would need a little more wor k, but was far from being beyond repair. The exterior has been restored to current standar ds Former mayor Tom Macklin said he was opposed to the city purchasing the building due to perceiving discrepancies in the contr act for buying the building. H e cited an addendum to the contract made by City Manager Julian DeLeon, in which the addendum would have precedence o v er the text of the contract, Macklin said. Macklin said the addendum appeared to ov err ule the 45-day due diligence period the city would have had to use to investigate the B r ickell Building fully. Macklin also stated he didn t believe the Flor ida state statute r egarding 30-day public notice for the city to announce its intention to pur chase the build ing had been honored as of Monday s meet ing. The discrepancy M acklin noticed was that the contract stated the city would look at the purchase pending council appr o val on Oct. 28 of this y ear However, the addendum signed by DeLeon changed that date to July 28 instead. This Macklin said, indicated that the addendum took prior ity o ver the original contract and violated the 30-day public notice required by state law. Because of kinks that needed to be worked out in the contract as noted by DeLeon as well as City Attorney Gerald Buhr, as well as working out a mutually agreeable price for the building, the discussion was ta bled and will resume at the next meeting on A ug. 11. at 863-385-6155, Ext.

A4 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, August 1, 2014 www.newssun.com BY LARR YY GRIFFIN STAFF WRITER AVON PARK At Mondays City Council meeting, the council shot down a petition by a r esident of Joe Hilton Street to vacate the right-of-way dead ending into a grassy ar ea near Lake Lotela. Due to the lack of a second, the petition died on the table and will not go fur ther The area has been a public easement used for lake access, but due to a lack of maintenance and a lack of people actually us ing that area, private land owner K im K ildahl wanted to vacate the right of way and prevent people from using the lake from Joe Hilton Street. She stated that she had never seen anyone using the Joe Hilton Street por tion of the lake to sh in the year and a half she has o wned the property. She also said her neighbor, Doug Barnard, who has lived there for 10 years, agreed that nobody used that area for shing. Bar nard, Kildahl said, has kept the area clean ar ound his residence where there used to be a lot of trash. Several citizens of Avon Park who did not own land on the lake were up set with the petition, thinking it would mean they would lose access to the lake and would not be able to sh. Im against that, Avon Park resident Alice Pais ley said. Thats access to the lake. I m a sher man. That roads been there for years...theres very few places to sh on that lake. (Joe Hilton Street) is one of them. I think this is wrong, another Avon Park resi dent, AlJoe Hinson, said. All this pr iv atizing of the lakes ... people feel they own these lakes. They are beautiful lakes, but some people dont want any one to use them but the people living close to the lakes Kildahl pointed out that there was a public lake access area and a shing dock just one street o v er on Ben Hicks Street. Despite the public outcry against the petition, no one spoke out against it at the P lanning & Z oning meeting where it was originally br ought for war d, Kildahl said. When the discussion mo v ed back to the council, Parke Sutherland mov ed to pass the motion to vacate a portion of Joe Hilton Street, due to the fact that no one had publicly used it and that no one had protested at the P lanning & Zoning meeting. Ho w ever, Deputy May or Brenda Giles disagreed, saying that due to the N o Trespassing sign that used to be up near the area, many residents sim ply had not known it was a public area. The petition died due to the lack of a second.Petition to vacate part of AP street dies Stephenson identied himself simply as a Christian, who attends the B ible F ellowship Church in Sebring. All ve candidates agr eed on some of the questions, including a query on whether they believe the United States was founded in Christian values and should be identied as a Christian nation. The second ar ea of accor d was that all supported the upcoming half-cent sales tax initiative designed to fund a num ber of differ ent school projects and needs That will be up for a voter referendum in the November general election. Over the course of the evening, some of the candidates skirted answers or responded to questions by talk ing about other topics or platform planks. T o the question of prayer in schools, Murphy, Stephenson, Culverhouse and Compton expr essed support of the practice. Suppor t for the looming Common Core principals was a bit less enthusiastic. Although he did not support it, M ur phy pointed out that the contro v er sial new provisions ar e the law , a position echoed by Hutchinson,who r e sented the Feds pushing this down our thr oats. Stephenson said he supported the Florida Standards. I do and I dont, Culverhouse said, adding that the Flor ida Standards the name for Common C ore in the Sunshine State were a more rigorous focus on education. Compton, while saying she was not for Common Core, did indicate she liked the critical thinking portions of the pro gram. When asked Who will prot most from Common Core? the answers varied. Hutchinson, alluding to a previous answer, referred to the book companies. Murphy and Stephenson add ed the testing companies to the list. Those who invent ed Common Core, not the teachers and not the futur e , Compton said. While allowing that there will be a monetary cost, Culverhouse maintained our kids will prot. The last question of the evening was about school choice. The Avon Park Lakes Baptist Church has helped to initiate the new Cornerstone Christian Academy and Hall asked the candidates about ed ucational alternatives. All ve agr eed that Highlands County parents should have options on where their youngsters should be allowed to be educated. The meeting was the rst of two.

FORUM FROM PAGE A A 1Jeff Morse to honor law enforcement and re/r escue her oes killed while in the line of duty the prior year. Morse helped to come up with the idea because he wanted to do something unique to r emember nine r eghters who died in a massive infer no at a furniture store June 18, 2007, in Charleston, S.C. The rst Brother hood Ride was from Naples to Charleston the next y ear around the same time. We really thought the rst ride would be a one-time deal, Morse said. But there was so much support ... and here we are. Each year, partici pants which include current or retired public safety personnel cycle thr ough communities who have lost someone to raise awareness and money for the victims families. A different route is chosen each year and past destinations have included Texas, New Yor k, and other par ts of Florida. The 2014 Brother hood Ride will begin at Nor th N aples Fire Sta tion 45 before riders tour through Clewiston, P or t St. Lucie and Lake Placid, and end at P ort Charlotte Elks Lodge 2153. The Lake Placid Elks will be providing din ner at about 6 / p.m. and hosting a meetand-greet social hour. The Brotherhood Riders will bunk down for the night at the Elks Lodge befor e continuing on the last leg of their journey after br eakfast. There will be about three dozen riders from various parts of the country. One of them will be Tim Elder, Okeechobee district manager for the F lor ida F orest Service. I will be honor ing Brett Fulton and Josh B ur chs memory by riding through the State of Florida in four days, covering over 400 miles, Elder said. My family, friends and neighbors are in vited to share in this adventur e b y supporting this great cause. Flor ida F orest Ser vices Wildland Fireghters Brett Fulton and Josh B ur ch died on June 20, 2011. Since its inception six years ago, the Br other hood Ride has raised $191,000 for families of the fallen who were being hon ored. Those being remembered in the upcoming Ride include S t. L ucie C ounty Sher iffs Sgt. Gary Morales, Br o ward County Sher iffs Deputy Daniel Rivera, P olk County Sheriffs Master Deputy Joseph Shane Robbins and Wilson. When someone dies in the line of duty, it affects the whole department, and other brothers and sisters in the pr ofession, Morse said. The 2014 riders are expected to nish their tour around 3 / p.m. M onday at the Port Charlotte Elks Lodge after passing by the Lakes of Tuscana Apartments where Wilson was killed to pay respect, Morse said. Riders will eat and sleep at the Elks Lodge at no cost to them. Weve always been close with re and law enforcement, Port Charlotte Elks lectur ing knight John DeR oche said. But this is close to our hear ts be cause we lost Michael Wilson.

We got a dose of both when Polk Cou nty Sheriff Grady Judd met with editors from our newspaper group recently. His main message was that the referendum language is so poor ly written that it would create loop holes big enough to sail a battleship t hro ugh. He said polling showing broad support for medical marijuana is awed and that people he speaks to change their minds when he explains that the amendment would essential ly legalize marijuana, not just make it le gal for medical purposes. He said the writers of the amend ment were exploiting voters compas sion for people suffering from illness es.. He touted the growing availability of dr ugs containing medically bene cial compounds contained in marijuana (without the euphoric effect of THC) as a r eason to not legalize pot. He cited the Florida Legislatures ap proval this year of a low-THC marijua na called Charlottes Web as an exam ple. W e agr ee with J udd and other sher iffs that voters should read both the abbr eviated ballot language and the full text of the amendment. Voters can go to the state Division of Elections website at election.dos.state..us and click on Constitutional Amendments. Amendment 2 is titled Use of Mar ijuana for Certain Medical Conditions. What w e r egr et is the FSA and indi vidual sheriffs engaging in overt scare tactics to convince v oters medical mar ijuana will unleash a host of an ti-social ills, including spiraling rec reational use and abuse (especially by minors), crime and the inv olv ement of criminals in the distribution chain. As we have noted before studies of states where medical marijuana is legal have shown the opposite to be true. There is no evidence medical marijuana pro duces a generation of young potheads and a Univ ersity of Texas study con cluded medical marijuana laws were not found to hav e a cr ime exacerbat ing effect on any of the seven crime types O n the contr ary, our ndings indicated that MML precedes a reduc tion in homicide and assault. We respect the position taken b y Florida sheriffs on this important public policy issue. They and their ofcers are on the front lines of cop ing with drug-related crime. We think they ear nestly believ e medical mari juana would make their jobs harder. That said, w e disappr o ve of the fearmongering tactics employed by Judd and others that smack of 1930s-era lms such as Reefer Madness that distort the issues even as they implore voters to look at the facts.A Polk County Democrat editorial.Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.com JOIN TT HE C OO N vV ERS aA TIO NLetters to the editor should be 250 words or less.

Now due to some accounting conict due to poor managing, they cant nd 450,000 of them. The P entagon says it is due to the manner in which we (the United States) keep track of the weapons and the Afghanis keep track, i.e., we use comput ers and they use paper and pencil.

Ive know Mr. Helms for 30 years and found him highly intelligent, motivated to task, opinionated in a good sense and a highly successful attor ney with vast exper ience in circuit court. Now he wants go give back to the community that he has worked in and raised his family. Judicial elections have always been dif cult because the candidates are w ell qualied and there is minimal advertising or name recognition. For me, personally, it has been a coin toss in the past. Lar ry Helms will not be a coin toss H e is honest and blessed with unbelievable common sense and is my choice for judge for Cir cuit Court Group 16.PETER SS VV ERRILL, MDWinter HavenHeres a trend that may not bode well for the future of our country: According to data from the Bur eau of Labor S tatistics, only 40 percent of 16to 19-year-olds have sum mer jobs down from 75 percent of teens a gener a tion ago. As it goes, accor ding to the NerdWallet website, teen summer employment has been declining for decades. Why? One r eason is that jobs typically tailored for teens are either shrinking or being taken by older folks. Another is that more teens ar e attending summer school, participating in ex tracurricular activities and volunteer ing. B ut a third reason is the most troubling: Fewer teens are willing to ip burgers or wor k manual labor during their summer vacation, according to re cruiting rm Challenger, Gr ay and Chr istmas. Which is a shame, because work is good for teens. I t exposes them to how industry works. It teaches them the value of a dollar. It gives them the dignity of exchanging their labor for money that they can use to support their education or maybe buy their rst junker car. But most of all, teens who dont work are miss ing out on some incredible growth experiences. I got my ver y rst job in the summer before I became an eighth-grader. I persuaded a neighbor to hir e me to cut her lawn for ve bucks. She had an electric mower with a long extension cord which I promptly ran over and de stroyed. I got canned before I nished the job. The next few summers, I wor ked at a driving range. I had to wake up at 5 / a.m., r ide my bike 2 miles up a hill, then pick up a couple of acres of golf balls with an aluminum picker. Sometimes, I worked the ev ening shift. I wor e a metal cage as I worked as dozens of people tried to hit me with golf balls. I was paid $1.25 an hour for this honor. The summer before 10th grade, I built up a decent business mowing lawns, but the summer before my junior year when I had my drivers license, nal ly I hit the mother lode. I put ads in the paper offering a service to rebuild stone and block retaining walls I worked a series of jobs in college: dishwasher, janitor, handyman, grass cutter I wor ked as a bouncer, too, which in volved kicking drunk people out of bars and mopping up that which some patrons couldn t keep down the most respect I ever got, then or now. In any event, these jobs helped me learn how to socialize and work with others. I learned how to sell, bid jobs and man age money. I learned selfreliance and the jo y that comes with a job well done. As more of todays teens miss out on such experiences, how might that affect their future? How might it affect Amer ica s future? Are we encouraging more kids to rely on the government, rather than themselves, to meet their basic needs in their adult years?

Its not about the competition. The word camaraderie was a common theme among the women when asked what they liked about the sport. I dont like sports that involve balls, and Im not terribly ath letic, Lisa Everhart said. B ut I know how to skate. This is a good sport for females without full contact. Lisa s two sisters Amy Everhart and Rachel Greene, are also on the team, having caught the bug fr om her. Lisa Everhart moved to Sebring after Rachel already had, and said roller der bying was not a part of life she wanted to leav e behind. Im a homebody, Lisa said. If Id never joined, theres plenty of people I never would hav e met. They are good people and good friends. There are cops, teachers, stay-at-home moms, and more. People have a stereotype of roller derby girls, and ... its not (true). The other girls on the team also spoke of what brought them into the fold the an swers were varied and wide-spanning, showing the div ersity of the team. I had been r oll er skating since I was a kid, T iffany Daigle, who goes by the name Rainbow Fright, said. When I was a kid, I heard the song Roller Derby Queen by J im C r oce, which got me interested in roller derby. All the teams I was nding wer e too far away. When I saw the ad for this one, I came out to join. Ive got two jobs, two kids, said Kristin Nelson, who goes by the stage name Nor ma Lee Wicked. Its good to get a break and good anger man agement (to come out to roller derb y pr actice). When I leave, I feel like I can pick up a car Doing this r eally helps your self condence. Amy Ev er hart is Lisas sister, and got into roller derb y fr om her. She saw there was no league in Sebring, Amy said of Lisa. Im on a mission to help her make one. Its good exercise and good to hang out with the other girls. We do other stuff, too. We go to parties and thats fun, too.

DERBY FROM PAGE A A 1funding of the countys Economic Development Commission and a suggestion that the county take a look at its pr operty inventory and consider selling off assets, including a number of parks. E lw ell took a num ber of impromptu polls of the audience. Of those in atten dance, there were an abundance of Republicans few er independents or minor party members and a smattering of Democrats. Most claimed to be pr operty owners, but only three raised their hands as business owners. A majority of the crowd responded that they had not had rais es in their jobs in the past seven y ears and a large number of the group said they had either taken pay cuts or lost their jobs altogether. Ov er the course of the ev ening, Elwell and the group delved into a number of other issues, including questions on why commissioners w er e seeking a tax increase but suspended impact fees, a suggestion on the priv atization of the countys Emer gency Medical Services, a move to one or more nighttime sessions b y the commis sion, the pending recycling program and a suggestion to suspend wor k on P hase III of the Sebring Parkway I think three quar ters in the people in the room indicated they did not want Phase III, and that surpr ised me, he said. Another hot-button topic was the upcoming referendum on the county s one-cent addition to the sales tax. An extension of the tax will be on the bal lot A ug. 26. While there w er e a number of audience members who did not vote either way, many responded that they would vote against the upcoming levy and about a third of those responding indicated that they did not think some or all the money had been spent wisely in recent years. Of those that re sponded, I think a majority said ... they would not v ote for it, but there were a fair amount who didnt raise their hands either way, Elwell said. A t the end of the session, the D istrict 2 commissioner provided a number of handouts, including spending graphs for the county o v er the past decade and CD ver sions of the countys pending 2014-2015 tentativ e budget, an 800-page document. That breakout of the budget over 10 years I thought would be helpful, he said. It showed the budget, how much had been saved and how much had been spent. That is information you dont normally get. I was happy to be able to provide that. Elwell said he planned to hold the eighth in the series later this year, possi bly in December.

The event will have displays and instruc tional sessions both inside and outside the church building. I t will run from 11 / a.m. until 2 / p.m. at 3235 Grand Prix D rive. We have a great motto in our church: Always Be Prepared, so we try to do these every year or so to help the community so peo ple are ready for whatever kind of emergency it is. That way, if you are pr epar ed, you can go out and help your neighbors and your friends, said organizer Michelle Leight. Participants will in clude the Highlands County D ivision of the Health Department, the Red Cross, the West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department and the Boy Scouts. Topics and displays will include aquapon ics, water purication and storage coupon ing, canning and preserving, rst aid, alternative cooking and food storage We have a bishop in our church that does aquaponics with his son, she said We call them our sh farmers. Its really gardening and sh farming. Boy Scout Troop 827 is slated to pres ent alternative cooking methods, demonstrat ing solar cooking and the use of Dutch o v ens. They say the methods are very effective, especially in case the power goes out. Those who want to cr eate a family disaster plan will get help from Red Cross ofcials as well as emergency nancial and insurance information fr om local experts will be included as part of the program. W e ll have plenty of handouts for people who want to go home, sit down and do some of these things as well, Leicht said. The Highlands Coun ty Division of the Flor ida Department of Health will hav e an ex hibit with information on county shelters and hurricane tr acking maps. In case families have to evacuate, WSVFD reghters will help residents with pro cedures for shutting down their house like turning off the gas and electric. They also will explain restrictions the department operates under in the event of a weather disaster. When the winds reach a certain speed, they cannot get out to respond, she said. One of the main fo cuses of the program will be the prepar a tion of 72-hour disaster kits. That station will help residents know what items they need to build and stock such kits, not only for themselves, but also for children and pets. I will be sho wing people how they can use coupons and store sales to get these items either very inexpensively and even sometimes for free, Leicht said.Emergency Preparedness Fair is Saturday in Sebring BY BARR YY FOSTER NEWS-S SUn N CORRESPOn N DEn N T SEBRING Ofcials from CareerSource Heartland have announced they are again polling the area business community The online surv ey is a fol low-up to a poll they conducted in May We want to nar row and better identify which workshops our local businesses would nd most benecial, said CareerSource CEO Donna Doubleday.

Carol Noel and Barbara Sweed told about the vacation they took tr av eling with their granddaughters. On June 13, Car ol and B arbara left with Carols 13-year-old granddaughter, Jade, from Palm Beach, to travel to Savanna for the rst night. The next day they traveled to Wilm ington, N.C. and stayed with Barbar a S weeds daughter and picked up Barbaras granddaughter, Shannon, also 13 years old. The next day they traveled to Washington D.C. It was an 80-degree sunny day and they saw Washington on the Red Bus Tour. They saw many historical places but J ade s favorite was the Lincoln Memor ial. They all enjoyed the Smithsonian, and the girls lov ed see ing the rst ladies inaugural gowns and Dorothys Red Slippers from the W izard of Oz. They also saw Arlington Cemetery. The next day they headed for New E ngland and they arrived in Massachusetts in time for their rst party I t was their 4th of July clambake and 73rd family reunion though it had to be postponed to July 5 because of H urricane Arthur. The next day the weather was great and everyone enjoyed the family reunion. The next week Car ol Noel and Jade went to Cape C od with C ar ols sister, Margaret, and they took a boat ride on the C ape Cod Canal. There they had lobster roll, which was delicious. Next, they took a tr ip to Plymouth and visited Plymouth Rock. After a few busy weeks they decided it was time to go home, so they ew out of Worcester Air port into Fort Lauder dale. She took Jade back home with her mother and Carol came back to T r opical Harbor on July 16. A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the FRIENDS & N NEIGHBORS HHEALTHY L LIVING Dear Pharmacist: What spray do you recommend for hiking or picnicking outdoors? T.K., D enver, Colo. Answer: This may shock you, but I prefer chemical sprays that contain DEET, picar idin or oil of lem on eucalyptus. I am all about good bug protection and can t nd any natural spr ay that works. Mosquitoes and ticks and other vectors, as they are called, carry pathogens that can infect y ou and disable y ou with encephalitis, malaria, Lyme, Babesia and other diseases. When I tr av eled to Johannesburg, South Africa to give a lecture, there was so much concern about Den gue fever transmission from the mosquitos that some men boar ded our plane with one specic task, to spray it do wn while all of us passengers covered up our face and nose to avoid breathing the fumes. Their intention was to kill any mosqui to on board, God for bid it infected a passenger. So I take no chances I used to take mor e chances, until I saw the r amications of this in my own family from one darn tick. No w I spr ay the chemicals on as if I was on the television show Naked & Afraid. It would be my survival item, ha ha. I go out when abso lutely necessary and avoid endemic ar eas and lakes that har bor disease-carrying critters I w ear long pants while hiking. I also keep up my B vitamins. Most of the time, the mosquitoes will swar m my husband and ignore me. I think the B vitamins matter I f you have a methylation snp (pronounced snip), you will be decient in B vitamins After I found out I had low B vitamins, I restored levels with a high-quality B complex, and added methylfolate and no w the bugs dont nd me quite as tasty. Science doesnt back me on that, but many report the same nd ing as me. Its really all about how attr activ e a bug nds you, thats why (if you can believe the Internet) spraying yourself with Listerine or eating garlic makes you less attractive to bugs. I respect that some of you dont want to spray on the chemi cals, and if you want a natural alter nativ e, heres a suggestion, but it may not work as well when applied: 32 ounces of apple cider vinegar 2 tablespoons each of dried sage, rosemary, lavender, thyme and pepper mint 1 tablespoon of dr ied basil 5 dr ops of essential oil of catnip Put all of this in a big glass jar and tighten the lid. Leave it there for three weeks (shake it every day though). Strain it and dilute by half with distilled wa ter. Put it in little spray bottles that you can carr y in your backpack or purse. Use as needed before going out. No w I d like to end the myth that taking antihistamines like Benadryl or Claritin before going out re pels bugs. Its not true. These drugs especial ly Benadryl, reduces itching and redness but thats all. Finally, some bug bites require medical attention. If you de velop swollen lymph nodes fev er headaches, hives or low blood pressur e this r equires medical attention.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Phar macist and Real Solutions.

No natural method works nearly as well. DEAR PHARMACISTSuzy CohenMost people arent paying too much attention to their feet during the summer time but feet ar e at their most vulnerable dur ing these hot months. Y ou can follo w a few foot tips to prevent these future foot pre dicaments so you can get back to your fun summer days: 1. Limit walking barefoot as it exposes feet to sunburn, as well as plantar war ts, athletes foot, ringworm, and oth er infections and also increases possible injur ies to y our feet. 2. W ear shoes or ip-ops around the pool, to the beach, in the locker room and even on the carpeting or in the bathroom of your hotel room to limit the likelihood of contracting any bac terial infections. 3. Remember to apply sunscr een all o ver your feet, with specic attention to the tops and fronts of an kles and don t forget to reapply after y ou ve been in the water. 4. Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water throughout the day. This will help with overall health, and will also minimize any foot swelling caused by the heat. 5. When traveling long distances in a car or plane, keep the blood owing with regular ankle exes, toe wiggles and calf stretches. 6. If your shoes get wet, they should be dried out complete ly before the next time you w ear them to pr event bacteria or fungus from growing. In case of minor foot pr oblems, be pre pared with the following on-the-go feet savers: 1. F lip ops for the pool, hotel room, and airport security check points. 2. Sterile bandag es for covering minor cuts and scrapes 3. Antibiotic cr eam to treat any skin injury. 4. Emollient-enr iched cr eam to hy drate feet. 5. Blister pads or moleskin to pr otect against blisters. 6. Motrin or Advil (anti-inammatory) to ease tired, swollen feet. 7. Toenail clip pers to keep toenails trimmed. 8. E mer y board to smooth rough edges or broken nails. 9. Pumice stone to soften callused skin. 10. Sunscreen to protect against the scorching sun. 11. Aloe vera or Sil vadene cream to relieve sunburns.Beware of the flip flop!Although the style is a favorite, this type of shoe has no arch support at all. If worn for a long period of time they can cause severe arch pain or pain on the ball of the foot. Flip ops offer no stability which means the foot moves when walking, especially at the end of gait when coming off the toes, instead of remaining stable. As a result, blisters or pain on the ball of the foot can dev elop Ballet-style ats can be just as bad because they also have inadequate foot support. F limsy shoe suppor t shouldn t be your only summer foot fear F ungal infections and warts are more common during the summer months due to the increased heat and humidity of en closed shoes. Due to so many r isks your feet might run into this summer, be certain you are taking the appropriate precautions to keep y our feet HAPPY.Dr. Olga Garcia Luep schen and the Gentle Foot Care Center are located on U.S. 27.

A8 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, August 1, 2014 www.newssun.com It was a chilly, wet morning in April, 1972, when my partner Chuck cast out an F-11 oating Rapala into the early morning, calm water. We had caught a few small bass on other top water lures and one on a plastic worm, but the action had slowed down quickly when the sun rose from the east. I watched and mar veled as Chuck let the minnow-imitating lur e just sit there, alongside a fallen tree, patiently waiting for the water rings to still. Like many guys I never really had his patience, often retrieving the lure fast just to get it and cast it to another likely looking spot. But he allowed the bait to just sit there, and after what seemed like minutes, he twitched his rod top ever so slightly impart ing a short jump to the lure Almost immediately the water beneath it exploded as a huge bass blew up on the tiny bait and the ght was on. M inutes later a tr ophy-sized bass lay in the boat and I started searching my tackle box for a similar lur e Many of you may be familiar with the Rapala lure, but few sher men know the history behind this legendary award-winning oating minnow. Lauri Rapala was born in 1905 on an island in Lake Paijanne, the lar gest lake in centr al F inland and part of the Sysma P ar ish, in the village of Rapala. Born out of wedlock to Maria Eerikintytar, Lauri never met his father. I n 1914, in or der to obtain work as a maid, his mother was required to register in the Sysma P ar ish. It was common for people who did not have a family surname to adopt one for the purposes of registra tion. The clergyman made a mistake when enter ing Laur is particulars and wrote the name of the village wher e Lauri was born in the space allocated for his sur name. Instead of being r eg istered as Laurie Saainen (the adopted family name) he was register ed as Laur ie Rapala. Little did the cler gyman know that he had single-handedly changed the course of shing histor y for ev er and had made an insignicant village in centr al F inland famous throughout the entire shing world. Lauri had little education and at the age of 10, began wor king at the Tommola farm, assisting in planting potatoes, caring for animals and picking fruit. Reading and wr it ing were not considered essential; what mattered was that y ou could put in a full days work on the farm. Fishing was essential for the livelihood of households and young Laur i was more than happy to catch some sh than perform end less farming chores. Lauri was called up to do his militar y ser vice in 1925 and he serv ed in the F innish army through 1926. In 1927, he met Elma Leppanen, and married in 1928. The only work available to the newlywed couple was for farmers and the mor e wealthy families, just like Lauris mother had done. Emma became a maid and Laur i, a farmhand, taking whatever work came available. Farm work took up most of his time in the summer, but any free time was taken up with shing, which Lauri enjoyed. The sh he caught supplemented the usu al diet of potato soup and pork stew Life was har d for both of them. Their accommodations were very basic and their income so lo w it was almost impossible to buy decent clothes to protect them from the harsh F innish winters. In 1933, Laurie and Elma made a signicant decision. They decided that the way of life to which they had become ac customed was not for them. They did not want to spend the r est of their lives doing menial labor for other people for pitiful wages. They decided the best course of action was to work for themselves. Lauri had become a successful sher man and if need be he could always turn to far ming and casual labor. Elma had skills as w ell; she made brooms and brushes from plants such as crowberry and heather, and she made Christmas tr ee decorations from pine cones, which Lauri could sell on his sh stall in the nearby Lahti mar ket. It is probably true to say that Lauri Rapala was not the hardest-working man you might hav e met in F in land in the 1930s.

The event is sanctioned by the International Sports Combat Feder ation and r esults will count on the ghters record. I t s the same thing as the professionals, just a few different rules said Chris Miller. The last half of the ghts is on the professional lev el. There is only one or two things they cannot do I f you have over three ghts, the rules change. Miller stated that it takes about three months of coordina tion to put this event together. Y ou have to ar range for the ofcials from the state to come do wn, he said. All the ofcials are licensed, you have the weight ofcials, referees, the three scoring judges and the ringside doc tors. Despite that, M iller said that getting ghters was the hardest part. B ecause they are not professionals and not under contracts, they are able to back out at the last mo ment, said Miller. Or if they for get their bloodwork and they cant get a hold of their doctor to send the results, they cannot ght. You get tested for ever ything, so bloodwor k is important. Another inter esting tidbit is that none of the ghters get paid because they ar e am ateurs, although their trav el, lodging and meals are paid for.

The Heat have 12 players locked in for next season, Bosh and Dwyane Wade fore most among them, and Riley expects the four -time defending Eastern Conference champions to compete once again this coming year But much of his rst session offering indepth remarks about free agency revolved, predictably, about James the MVP who got away. I went into it with the thought and the notion that he was coming back and I was selling that to players, Riley said. I believed that rmly so I was selling that to players. And thats the only way I went into it. I let him know that. He never said to me, No, dont do that. Riley, however, not ed that he did not feel misled by J ames dur ing fr ee agency. James is no w back with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the team that he left for Miami in 2010, four trips to the NBA Finals and two championships ago. The Heat scrambled quickly to move on to Plan B, locking up Bosh (whose signing was agreed to weeks ago) and Wade be fore long and avoiding what could have been an absolute disaster otherwise. Riley said hes become energized by the task of building a champion again. W e are up to the challenge, Riley said.

A10 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, August 1, 2014 www.newssun.com He enjoyed his shing and he would often take himself off in his r o wing boat and search for sh, often not returning for days. But he always br ought home sh for his family and to sell at the market. Although Lauri generally considered live bait chubs and wor ms to be the most effectiv e choice, his wifes brothers often used store-bought lures E ventually, Lauri came into possession of a well-worn sh imitating lure and star ted thinking about carving his own. He began carving his wobbling, minnow-imitating lure, and using his y ears of exper ience continued to improve the design until it actually began out-per forming live bait. The story of R apala lures had begun. It wasnt until 1936 that Laurie had carved a rough-looking lure that produced an offcenter and enticing wobble. His rst lures were carved from cork and were extremely buoy ant. The lure was sealed with a v arnish containing ecks of goldcolored metal. Finally the lur e was painted black along the top half, reecting a lighter colored underside, betting what Laur i himself felt a baitsh best resembled. News of Laur i s lures began to spread amongst shermen of Lake Paijanne, and he began receiving orders from other villages. His big break came in 1938 when the local cooperative store in Kalk kinen village (which is still standing today) purchased a small number of the lures to sell to its shing cus tomers. It was a modest star t, but the orders increased steadily though it proved to be short-lived as the shadows of war were looming over Europe. As the war br oke out, Laur i suspended his business and went back into the service. It wasnt until 1946, after the war, that he started up again. In 1949, he entered the lure into a local ag ricultural fair and won rst place. P r oduction of the lure picked up with Lauris sons now assist ing in making the ear ly lures. But ev en with pr oduction increasing, Lauri insisted on testing ev er y lure to make sure the action was just what he wanted. B y 1952, the Rapala lure was becoming well known and in 1953, Laurie received his big gest order ever 300 wobblers. W ith the payment of that order, Elma and Lauri made the decision to build a new house and workshop O nce the workshop was complete, Lauri began hiring craftsman and soon had over 25 workers. Most worked from home and were paid by the number of lures they carved. In 1955, the Rapala lure was making inter national news. They became inter national exporters, shipping their no w famous lur es all o ver the world. Today R apala lures holds more international world record sh titles than all other shing lur es combined! Like many sher men, Rapalas have been part of my shing tools for more years than I can remember. But the original F-7, F-9 and F-11 oaters have always been my favorite. If youve never ex perienced shing with one of these lures I suggest you give it a try. If, like me, youve used the lure before, dust it off and try it again. Theres a reason this lure holds so many world records! (Excerpts from the book RAPALA, written by John E. Mitchell in 2005 were used in this article)Don Norton is a profession RAPALA FROM PAGE A A 8The rst is my coach, Steve Weed, and I have been to so many of these events that we though a small town like Sebring could use some excitement, said Miller. Plus we dont have to travel. We were traveling two to four hours to an event. The second reason is because last years Swamp Brawl was a huge success with pos itive feedback and reviews. Miller will also be ghting in the ev ent as will six other locals ve from Sebring and one from Avon Park. Justin Chin, who lives in Sebring, trains at the Future Dragon Kung Fu Club in Se bring under the watchful eye of his father, Enrico Chin, who is also the SIFU Chief Instructor at the club, will be ghting in the only kickbo xing match of the night. Chin has been doing martial arts since he was ve and kickbox ghting for three years while compiling a 5-0 record. Chin said he prefers kickboxing over mixed martial arts because he likes to stand up and ght on his feet. Kickboxing has wrestling in it, he said. Like you can slam someone to the ground, there is just no continued grappling after that. They stand you back up, I just pre fer standup ghting. He plans on going pr ofessional when he is 10-0 as an amateur ghter. Another ghter from the Sebring area is Noah Weed current ly 6-4 in amateur bouts including a tough loss b y decision in last years Swamp Brawl. Weed, like Chin, is trained by his father Steve Weed at the Uni versal Center of Natural Martial Arts in Sebring. Weed admittedly has only a half a y ear of high school wrestling experience and needs more work in takedowns The most difcult aspect of ght ing is tr ying to balance out all areas of offense and defense, said Weed, who plans to turn professional by this time next year. At times I will get good on the ground and other times I will get good at the striking. When I get good at one, the oth er seems to go down a little bit, so my biggest pr oblem is keeping both up at the same high level. When asked whether those with an extensive wrestling background have an advantage in mixed martial arts, his father and trainer stat ed yes and no. Wr estlers have to learn not to have everything tied up all the time, said the elder Weed. To be able to submit and punch in which the balance on top of somebody is a little different. They do have the advantage in that they do not have to learn the hip bal ance, how to put their weight on somebody and the takedo wns. Those two areas they are fantastic at. Somebody with extensive wrestling experience is a newcomer in the mixed martial ar ts ar ena, J ohnny Baldridge, who will be making his debut appearance in the caged ring. B aldr idge, from Avon Park, had an impres sive 162-24 record as a high school wrestler B aldridge, who is 19 (turns 20 on August 4), says he got involved when he was approached b y Chr is Miller while working out in the gym. Ive wanted to do this since I was little, said Baldridge. When Chris (Miller) asked me if I wanted to try it out, I thought that this was my opportunity. Baldridge currently trains with Justin Chin at the Future Dragon Kung Fu Club. Two other local ght ers, Hale Kelly and Mike M cK enna from Sebring, were out of town and unavailable for interviews. It should also be noted that Weed, Miller, K elly and M cK enna are trained by Steve Weed of the Universal Center of Natural Martial Arts. The event will take place at the Highlands Today Center on Satur day, Aug. 9, in Sebring with the doors opening at 6 / p.m. and the festivities beginning at 7 / p.m. The cost is $20 for general admission with VIP tables (seats up to 6) for $250. The Sebring Fire men are doing the beer sales while Don Jose R estaurant will be pro viding food. BRAWL FROM PAGE A A 8 Jim Taylor/News-SunNoah Weed and Justin Chin, both from Sebring, and Johnny Baldridge of Avon Park will be ghting on Saturday, Aug. 9 at Swamp Brawll II. anybody, I think, in the Eastern Confer ence. I feel great, right now today making sure that we got Chris signed, got him under contract, and got DWade back and Udonis (Haslem) and the cor e of our foundation and w e ll go from he re. Before he announced his decision, James and his inner cir cle summoned Riley and Heat gener al manager Andy Elisburg to Las Vegas for a meeting. Riley and Elisbur g left believing they had done well. A day later, James was meeting with Sports Illustrated, col laborating on the rstperson essay that would come out and announce his decision to return to Cleveland. The Heat were told of the contents of that essay moments before it was released pub licly. I don t get hurt, Riley said. This is business. This is all business. As soon as something happens in this business I had to react, we had to re act as an organization, and we did. Riley said Wednesday that once the Heat learned that J ames was leaving, it was too late to get involved in the pursuit of Carmelo Anthony, who wound up re-signing with the New York Knicks. Still, it was more than a salvage project. Wade and Bosh are both likely Hall of Fame players. The Heat wound up with some of their top free-agent targets in players like Luol Deng and Josh McRoberts, both of whom Riley raved about about. Perhaps most im portantly, the Heat not only gure to be good enough to compete now, but have the exibility nancially for Riley to go out in the alr eady -anticipated free-agent summer of 2016 and try to build what he did when he got James, Wade and Bosh to team up. And instead of blast ing James as Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert did when he left Cleveland in 2010 the H eat have taken the high road, with managing general par tner Micky Arison writing an open letter to fans this week reminding them that ev en without James, the franchises goal of winning more titles hasnt changed. Were going to try to make it another gen erational team, Riley said.

L IVING BFriday, August 1, 2014 Family Features When it comes to offering specialized, one-on-one support and niche product offerings, nothing beats shopping with a locally-owned small business. In a recent survey elded by The UPS Store to get the pulse of business in America, 94 percent of consumers believe that supporting small companies within their community is important. The survey also found that consumers are increasingly willing to spend more money and travel further out of their way to shop with a small business. We know that small businesses are a vital part of our neighbor hoods and our entire economy, said Tim Davis, president of The UPS Store. Small business owners, from startups to well-estab lished neighborhood businesses, have the ability to make a big impact within their community and beyond. As an entrepreneur, you may wonder how you can cash in on this rising popularity and expand your own enterprise to reach these quality-seeking customers. Here are a few ways to make a big impact with your small business: 1. Go above and beyond for customers While it seems companies keep getting bigger, instances of ex cellent customer service seem to be dwindling. Due to this widespread lack of quality, many individuals are choosing to support small business when it comes to obtaining what they need. Small companies have the unique oppor tunity to provide one-on-one attention to their customers. Those who excel at enticing and serving customers set themselves apart from the competition. 2. Get involved in your community Some of the best marketing you can provide your small compa ny is with involvement in philan thropic efforts in your local community. Though restricted budgets cause some small businesses to keep charity to a minimum, there are a variety of other meaningful ways to show your organiza tions generosity. Give your time to charitable causes related to your eld. For example, if you sell pet products, offer to volunteer at a local animal shelter. Or, if your eld is architecture, get your company involved in organizations that build homes for families in need. If you have employees, en courage them to also help out. Sponsor a company-wide volunteer event at a local food pantry or offer paid time off for such charitable endeavors. 3. Make products and services stand out As a small business owner, you have the advantage over big box stores who lack specialized knowledge. Offer your customer base a niche product or service that cant be found elsewhere. Give them quality, both in the product and customer support, and your busi ness will reap the rewards of happy, repeat customers and wordof-mouth promotion. If you offer several products, but nd that most customers want only one or two offerings, focus on increasing the quality on that area of business. 4. Share your knowledge through education and mentorship As a small business owner, you offer those within your commu nity a unique background and expertise. One of the easiest ways to give back is by educating eager minds interested in your eld. Whether lecturing at the local college or getting involved in a men torship program, present ing yourself as a respected colleague not only sheds a positive light on your company, it also helps you build relationships. These relationships can be informal or you can team up with an organization like SCORE to volunteer as a mentor. For more information, visit www.score.org. 5. Expand your reach through technology Social media allows small businesses to reach a global popula tion like never before. Start small with just one social media outlet and then build on your presence from there. If you have a marketing team, ask that they maintain the account, or hire an outside consultant. Your website is also a powerful tool, so make sure it re ects your business in the way you want to be portrayed. Regular ly update your site to keep it current with the changing times. Also, make sure your website is opti mized so more people looking for your unique products and services can easily nd you.

My small business is not as small as you might think. Through the stories I tell, I get to impact the lives of parents and kids all around the world.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, August 1, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have a lake house and invited a couple (close friends) to join us for a few days. The husband has cancer and has been taking chemo. We wanted them both to rest, as the wife is his only caregiver. We all thought this would be a wonderful oppor tunity to relax and enjoy nature. The second night they were there, the husband went to bed very early and the three of us were visiting. At one point, my friend went into the kitchen. When she didnt come out, I went to check on her and found her close to a diabetic coma. It was very frightening. She hadnt eaten much dinner and her blood sugar had crashed to a dangerous level. Fortunately, we knew what to do because my dad was diabetic. We were an hour from the nearest hospital and had no cell reception. We did not know where her medication was. My friend was making no sense and couldnt remember. I want to respect my friends privacy, but if you travel with someone you know has a medical condition, is it OK to ask where they keep their meds in case of an emer gency? How do you approach the subject? CARING FRIEND IN CALIFORNIA DEAR CARING FRIEND: Of course its OK. And a perfect way to lead up to that question would be to relate the story you have written to me.

Solution on B5PUZZLE CORNER At the height of their powers, our overlords at Marvel have deigned to prove, like an emper or tolerating a court jester, that they do, in fact, have a sense of humor. The Marvel universe, of course, isnt entirely lacking comedy, as weve seen in Iron Man and The Avengers. But on the whole, the Marvel kingdom is built on an unshakable foundation of self-seriousness. The comic book studio seems to fear that if the solemnity of its fiction isnt diligently guarded, people might start questioning whether all these men in spandex merit quite so much attention. Yet Guardians of the Galaxy, a 3-D space opera about a ragtag crew of mercenaries, is Marvels most irreverent film yet, and has a welcome, slightly self-mocking tone that dares to suggest inter galactic battles over orbs might actually be a tad silly. This is all very much to the good, but the problem with Guardians of the Galaxy, directed by James Gunn, is the weakness of the comedy it wears so proudly. It takes more than a soundtrack full of s tunes, a talking raccoon and a few gags about Footloose to be funny. Its zany in quotes. As if demonstrating its tonal distance from Marvels other planetary bodies, Guardians of the Galaxy takes place at the far reaches of space, where we find Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) skipping along on an abandoned planet. He removes his mask, presses play on a Walkman and does something normally sacrosanct in Marvel-land: He dances. Blaring is the irresistible 1974 hit Come and Get Your Love by Redbone, the first of many such old radio hits. The music, as we learned in the prologue, is from a mixtape given to Quill as a child by his cancer-stricken mother shortly before her death. Distraught, he rushes outside only to in quite the double-whammy be beamed up by a spaceship. Twenty-six years later, Quill is a Han Solo-like scavenger who stumbles across a silver orb also sought by some powerfully evil forces: Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace, obscured by makeup but still a severe presence) and his boss, Thanos (Josh Brolin). The warm spirit of Guardians owes much to Pratt, the guileless, formerly doughy Parks and Recreation star; his casting in inspired. The resulting scrum for the orb introduces several more seekers: the green-skinned Gamora (Zoe Saldana), the hulking Drax (Dave Bautista) and a CGI odd couple: a bitterly sardonic raccoon named Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and his sidekick, a talking tree called Groot (Vin Diesel) who looks like he sprouted from The Lord of the Rings. All reluctantly unite like a sarcastic Dirty Dozen. The Guardians, who were first introduced in a 1969 comic, are far from Marvels star players. But their not-primetime-player status is freeing to Gunn, whose 2010 comedy Super starred Rainn Wilson as a wannabe crime fighter. He wrote the film with Nicole Perlman, clearly aspiring for a rollicking adventure in the mold of Indiana Jones or Star Wars, which the movies poster evoked. But the film is terribly over stuffed and many of the jokes get drowned out by the special effects. Presumably awaiting meatier work sequels to come, fine actors like Glenn Close, John C. Reilly and Benicio Del Toro come and go with just a few lines. (How can a movie seeking humor in outer space not utilize Reilly?) The pervasive movie references detract from the stab at freshness, and Guardians depends all too much on the whimsy of s anthems for an original beat. Others, eager for any play fulness from Marvel, will surely be more excited by Guardians of the Galaxy.

However, when you live in the Midwests tornado alley (as our family did in Kansas and Missouri) or the in path of tropical storms and hurricanes visited upon the southern and eastern coasts (as our family does in Florida now), bad weather is a part of life and the world in which we live. Sadly, some of these storms bring much destruction to personal property. Some of these storms even carry with them the great cost of human life. Years ago, my oldest son and I once were talking about the apartment in which we had lived years ago in Dallas, Texas, and how it compared to the house in which we then lived in Kansas. We talked about how if we were going to be in the midst of a tornado, we would rather nd ourselves in the basement of a house than the second oor of an apartment building. Neither place would guarantee our safety, but the house would offer greater security against the incredible power of the storm. There exists in our physical world certain forces that can be devastating to our material possessions and, yes, even our lives. However, as terrible as these natural disasters are, they in no way measure up to the spir itual devastation that can be caused by Satan and his constant efforts to sway us toward lives of sin. It is his aim to pick us up in his evil grips and take away not simply our earthly lives, but our immortal spirits. Just as we would seek refuge from the storms of life, there is also one in whom we may seek refuge from the storms of the spirit. Psalm 46:1-3 reads, God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea; Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains quake at its swelling pride. One of the greatest blessings of Christianity is the ability to stand rm and secure through whatever Satan sends our way, because God is always with us. Paul wrote in 2 Thessalonians 3:3, But the Lord is faithful, and He will strengthen and protect you from the evil one. If we lean on the Lord for strength and guidance, He will always be there for us. If we decide to seek refuge anywhere else, then we may suddenly nd ourselves in the midst of a spiritual storm that will cost us our eternity with God. Remember, Satan never sounds a siren to alert us that he is near. If we do not stand alert to his dangerous presence, then by the time we realize he is near, it may be too late. Are you ready for the storm?

PHILADELPHIA (AP) A Sudanese woman who refused to recant her Christian faith in the face of a death sentence, which was later overturned, left Europe on Thursday for the United States, where she will make her new home. The woman, Meriam Ibrahim, was due to arrive with her husband and their children in Philadelphia on Thursday on a flight from Rome, where last week they met privately with Pope Francis. The Rev. William Devlin, a New York City pastor who has helped the family, said they would be flying onto Manchester, New Hampshire, about 50 miles north of Boston. Meriams husband, Daniel Wani, had previously lived in New Hampshire, where hundreds of southern Sudanese refugees have settled over the years. He had been granted U.S. citizenship when he fled to the United States as a child to escape civil war, but he later returned and was a citizen of South Sudan. Sudan initially blocked Ibrahim from leaving the country even after its highest court overturned her death sentence in June. At one point, the family took refuge at the U.S. embassy in Khartoum. Devlin said Ibrahim expressed some sadness when he talked to her Wednesday. She is leaving everything she knows behind, he said. Ibrahim had been sentenced to death over charges of apostasy. Her father was Muslim, and her mother was an Orthodox Christian. She married Wani, a Christian from southern Sudan, in 2011. Muslim women in Sudan are prohibited from marrying non-Muslims. By law, children must follow their fathers religion. Manchester, with 110,000 people, is northern New Englands largest city and has been a magnet for immigrants and refugees for decades. There are about 500 Sudanese living in the city just north of the Massachusetts state line. A small gathering is planned at the airport tonight, said Gabriel Wani, Ibrahims brother-in-law. He spoke to his brother and said the family is doing well. Were just going to go and bring them home, he said. They want to come home and they want to rest. Monyroor Teng, pastor of the Sudanese Evangelical Covenant Church in Manchester, said Ibrahims release gives him hope. People are really happy to receive them when they come home, he said. Its a miracle to me. I didnt think that something like this would happen because in Sudan, when something happens like that, its unreal. It happens to so many people. Maybe, who knows, Im praying for those (other) ladies who are in jail and those who have died.Sudan woman who faced death over faith heads to US i......................................T A P A U M A H U S KA M O U R N A N O V A LH A M I E T W H O M U L ER H O D E S E A T A L E EM I N D T H E G A O ILS C A L E N E M E N E SH O N O R E E A R AF L A G G M U G I D O C A E S U R AS A N E R A L L A Y E T DL O N G F E L L O W MENS H A G A G A H A B I T SC A K E C A B A R A B I AU S E R E N E E N E M YD A D1, S D O L E X E S
