It began with Hurricane Charley. The Category 4 storm made landfall just west of Fort Myers on Aug. 13, 2004. It moved northeasterly through Hardee County, brushing Highlands with hurricane-force winds. At the time it was the second costliest hurricane in history. On Sept. 5, Frances made landfall on the east coast of Florida with 105 mph winds, moving very slowly northwesterly again pummeling Highlands County with high winds and torrential rain. Finally, Jeanne a Category 3 storm made landfall at Stuart on Sept. 26 with 120 mph winds. The eye of that storm crossed through Highlands County as it moved across the Sunshine State. The storms left in their wake billions of dollars in property damage and stories of how residents coped with weeks of power outages, limited phone service, schedule interruptions and the constant drone of generators in various Hurricane seminar set for Saturday It began with HurTRACKING MAP BROUGHT TO YOU BY Hurricane season prepSPECIAL SECTION IN THIS ISSUE UNSUNG HEROES Open hearts, open homeFranklins heard call, became foster parents Katara Simmons/News-SunFoster parents Gary and Mary Franklin have an open door policy when it comes to foster children and their families.

One woman asked a group she saw at Walmart about it, and when they told her the story, she bought a bunch of shoes to give away. The shoes will trav el this summer to the feet of orphaned and underpr ivileged children in the Dominican R epublic with S arah Beth Rogers, 17, who gr aduates fr om the Sebring High School International Baccalaureate program this year. R ogers who has taken two mission trips with Homeless and Orphans Outreach Inc. in Lake Placid, plans to take another trip on June 30. She said 100 of the shoes will go with her. The rest will be shipped in September to the missions orphanag es and schools with 60 childr en in S an Cristobal and a community feeding center in San P edr o de Macors that feeds 150 children each day. It may take a big box. She collected 500-600 pairs in three services at Grace Bible Church in Sebring, directly off the church-goers feet. The response from the congregation was amazing, Rogers said. The majority of them left the shoes they were wearing. Rogers had ap proached Dustin W oods lead pastor, about putting a collection box at the church, but he invited her to talk to the congr egation at the Saturday night and Sunday morning services. I felt this was some thing that God wanted to challenge Grace B ible (Chur ch) to do, Woods said. He had met Rogers once before, while judging candidates for the 2014 S ebring Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Student of the Year which she won. He was impressed with her passion then, he said. Rogers said she even had 50 pairs of shoes waiting at the door of the church on Sun day morning, after they had alr eady collected shoes from the Satur day service. Two hours after the ser vices people were still bringing shoes to the chur ch, she said enough to ll the bed of a full-size pickup truck bed. Woods said photo graphs from Rogers F acebook posts star ted trending and at least one person fr om C alifornia bought shoes to send to the mission. This S unday she hopes to talk to her home church Unit ed Methodist Church in Lake P lacid about funding the cargo container to help her send the shoes to the children. When asked if S unday shoes would be pr actical for orphans in the Dominican Republic, Rogers said she has nev er had pr oblems nding children who can wear the shoes she receives and expects these shoes will nd new feet, too. There will always be children who can wear them, Rogers said. They wear bro ken shoes that they mend themselves . She said shoes are often a forgotten need, r anked behind food and clothing, but its a need nonetheless. (I knew) God had a mission for these shoes and he would fulll it, Rogers said. This third trip is also a bit of a triumph for Rogers, who before age 16 couldnt travel any where. She said she has her editar y spherocytosis, a genetic red blood cell disor der char acter ized by anemia, jaundice and enlargement of the spleen. R ogers said her spleen quit working, so she had to have it removed. he no w takes penicillin each day but that has made her immune system str ong enough to travel, especially on mission trips. I want to do everything. I want to go mor e places , Rogers said.Got Shoes?Gods children give theirs up to help students mission PP rovided to NN ews-SunMembers of Grace Bible Church in Sebring count the many dozens of shoes donated during the Memorial Day weekend church services to a local outreach to take shoes to orphans in the Dominican Republic. SarahBeth Rogers, 17, who organized the effort, said the three services collected 500-600 shoes. PP rovided to NN ews-SunSarahBeth Rogers, 17, of Lake Placid pauses while packing up a few dozen of the hundreds of shoes collected over Memorial Day weekend for orphans in the Dominican Republic.

Rogers big winner of Alan Jay scholarshipA4 BY CH RR IS TOTO PH ERER TT UFFL EYEY News-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING Jacob Landis, 24, rode down U.S. 27 through Highlands County Wednesday on his way to Miami and Marlin Park. H e was nishing a r emarkable bicycle odyssey he began in 2013. Landis began to lose his hear ing at the age of age of 2. To this day, doctors have no idea what went wrong. By kindergarten, he was tted for a hearing aid, his father Randy Landis said. By fourth grade, the aids no lon ger helped his helped his son. Things came to a head one evening, Randy Landis added when Jacob burst into tears when he saw his sister and br other running to answer the phone and realized he could no longer hear it ring. In 1999, when he was 10 years old, Lan dis parents managed to pr o vide him with a cochlear implant which typically cost between $70,000 and $100,000. It took sacrice from his parents, Landis said, something he keeps in mind. F ourteen years later, Landis decided to take a long bike ride to raise money so other individuals with hearing loss but without the nancial means to get cochlear implants H is goal is to raise enough money to pay for 100 cochlear implants. So, in 2013 he mounted his bike and set off on an odyssey to r aise money. A lover of base ball, Landis organized his bike r ide b y visiting the countrys 30 major league ball parks. F or six months he rode from state to state with his cousin alongside in a chase van. He had successfully visited 29 ball parks, and was on his last lap to M iami and Mar lin Park, when he was clipped b y a semi whose driver never stopped on U.S. 27 near F r ostproof after bicycling more than 10,000 miles Landis sustained a concussion, broken nose and cheek as well as severe road rash. While the injuries were not life threaten ing, he was unable to nish his r ide Which is why he was out on U.S. 27 Wednesday afternoon one year later with a sher iff s ofce escort and his father driving alongside deter mined to accomplish his mission. While he sat in the shade b y Lake Josephine Drive drinking G ator ade catching his breath having ridden over from Tampa that morning headed for Clewiston that night his dad took pleasure in bragging on him. Hes changed lives, Randy Landis said. Hes shown that even if you are hearing im paired you dont have to feel limited. Y ou should go for your dreams.

At the close of ceremonies Saturday, the local auto dealership will hav e given out just short of 60 vehicles to students who have scored top marks. In addition to Avon Park, Lake Placid and Se bring, cars also have been giv en to seniors in Wauchulla and in Clewiston, where Alan Jay maintains dealer ships. O n Thursday The Alan Jay Automotive Network agian teamed up with the Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce to give out $6,000 in scholarships to a trio of Sebring High School students. Walking away with top honors and a $3,000 scholarship was SaraBeth Rogers. With a weighted grade point average of 5.37, she has done a number of local projects, in cluding missions work for people in the Dominican Republic and work for the M ason G. Smoak Foundation. Rogers is a member of the Christian Blue Streaks and an Inter national Baccalaureate diploma candidate, among other accomplishments. She plans to attend W ake Forest University. Receiving a $2,000 scholarship was Jar ed Lang. He was top scholar in his class with a w eighted grade point average of 5.9. Lang has been accepted at the United States N av al Academy, the University of Florida and Harvard Universi ty. He plans to attend H ar vard. Senior Angie Patino picked up $1,000 in scholarship money. Born in Bogata, Columbia, she emigrated to the U nited S tates as a child. Her plans are to attend the Univer sity of Florida with an ey e to ward being a vet erinarian. A member of the FFA, P atino said one of her goals would be to ght world hunger through agriculture. The thr ee w ere selected from a short list of eight nalists All of the students received swag bags containing an array of food and r etail discount cards, movie tickets and a voucher good for $250 in gasoline pur chases. Ov er the course of the past 21 years, the scholarship fund has given out more than $250,000 to students. Alan Wildstein, who formulated the pro gram with former G r eater Sebring Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Mike Lee o v er two decades ago, said he wanted to raise enough money to make an endowment fund. Attendees at Thurs days luncheon pledged mor e than $4,800, which was matched by the Alan Jay Automotive Net work. The Alan J ay Wheels for As program has given out 54 cars since its inception with a v ehicle pr ice tag in excess of $600,000. The rst of this years cars will be given out this evening at the Avon Park Senior High School gradua tion ceremonies.Alan Jay Network hands out scholarships Barry Foster/News-SunAngie Patino, Jared Lang and SaraBeth Rogers hold their checks after receiving scholarships at the Alan Jay Automotive Network/ Greater Sebring Chamber of Commerce awards banquet held Thursday at the Island View Restaurant at Sun N Lake. In all, $6,000 in scholarship money was awarded. The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN BY KIRSTEN SCARBOROUGHNews-Sun InternSEBRING The Paul J. Gustat Band Fund will begin aiding students for the 20142015 academic school year in the Sebring school system. This scholarship fund is available on a need basis, to provide musically-inclined stu dents with support for the pay-to-play costs in Highlands County schools. The PJGBF was founded due to the loss of Paul J. Gustat, Sebring High Schools former band director of thirty-six years, who passed in late 2013. It was Pauls father, Peter J. Prof Gustat, who founded the Sebring band program in 1927, and Paul Gustat fol lowed in his footsteps. I t is this family legacy that the PJGBF wishes to memor ializ e. This fund will become part of the SHS band s ongoing fundraising activities, but it is not necessar y to wait for a SHS band fundraising event to make a donation to the fund. As for fundr aising progress, so far a total of $2,250 has been donated. The fund has been pr ovided with a commitment of $10,000 o v er an eight-year time period from an extended member of the G ustat family Stephen and Tammy James of Atlanta. An additional donation has been made by P aul s Widow, Merrilou K. Skee Gustat, offering $1,000 to begin the community -wide fundraising campaign. The Jameses offered a matching amount of $1,000 once Mrs. Gustats pledge was made. The PJGBF has outlined a set of operating guidelines and pay -toplay costs as w ell. The operating guidelines for donations to this fund ar e to spend up to one-half of the annual donations on Sebring community students, saving the other half to build an endo wment base. It is hoped that at some future time, the base of these funds can provide ample div idends which will fur ther aid in the amount of av ailable scholar ships C urr ently, the payto-play cost per student is between $200$260 per y ear the higher cost being when a student leases an instrument through the band program, rather than through a private sector music store. Once the funds capi tal base has increased, ther e is a plan in place to expand to the Avon Park and Lake Placid school programs as w ell. Any donations made to The Paul J. Gustat Band Fund are tax-deductible and should be dir ected to the fund s duciary, Mr. Robert Perry, 426 School St., Sebring, 33870.Paul J.

www.newssun.comFriday, May 30, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Y OO UR VIEWS When it comes to Floridas prop erty insurance rates, what a d i fference a little pressure from the states chief nancial ofcer can make. In 2013, most of Floridas proper ty insurers, as usual, led for rate in creases despite eight straight years without a hurr icane and sharp r educ tions in insurers costs. And why not? The state Ofce of I n surance Regulation had approved mor e than 100 r ate increase requests each year since 2009 many of them in double digits. As a result, Floridas average prop erty insurance premium $1,933, based on 2011 gur es became the highest in the nation, and double the national average, according to the Na tional Association of Insurance Com missioners. Then, late last y ear Florida CFO Jeff Atwater, who oversees insurance reg ulation, directed Insurance Commis sioner Kevin McCarty to compile a r epor t detailing how much property insurers had saved in 2013 and why consumers had not beneted. After all, besides avoiding hurri cane-damage payments since 2005, F lor ida insurers had saved hundreds of millions when the cost of reinsur ance the policies they buy to back up their claims fell by 20 per cent or more. The 10 largest Florida-based prop erty insurance companies had made $283 million in net under wr iting prots through the third quarter of 2013, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported. And most of the property insurers were looking for more. But, after Atwater asked for the re port, things began to change. M cC arty reported in January that a half-dozen of the states 30 major property insurers have a recently ap proved or pending request for a rate cut betw een 2.4 per cent and 9.2 per cent, the Tampa Bay Times reported. S ome companies that initial ly sought incr eases even have back tracked. The single-digit r eductions so far are dwarfed by the increases Flori da insurers reaped for several years. Last year alone homeowner insur ance rates across the state rose 11 per cent, according to insurance consultants Perr & Knight. Still, the rate cuts that M cCarty reported are a start and, thankfully, just a start, Atwater indi cated in a recent statement. There s no doubt that Florida homes and businesses face special risks, in cluding the threat of hurricanes and tornadoes rising sea levels and even the increased frequency of sinkholes. But when nature spares Florida from the onslaught of hurricanes for an eight-year period and insurers benet from reduced costs as a result property insurance rates should re ect that good fortune. Thanks to A twater s pressure, the tide has begun to turn in favor of homeowners.An editorial from The Gainesville Sun.Turning the tide on insurance ratesStop further erosion nowFirst it was the Fast and Furious gun smuggling incident, then the IRS inv estigating the r eturns of Tea Party people, the Benghazi disaster and now the VA scandal, all of which that community or ganiz er in the White House claims no kno wledge of and his A ttorney General refuses to prosecute any one involved. Obama appar ently only hears of these problems after the fact, usually while he is out making yet another campaign speech at a donors dinner somewhere The head of the V A, General Eric Shinseki, has commented that 26 VA facilities are under investigation for various problems and others for falsifying records. This is all due to the fact of the o v erwhelming number of veterans and underwhelming number of people to handle the cases S enator John McCain and Representative Nancy Pelosi have both said the V A should allow veter ans to go to private hospitals and local medical facilities to lessen the wor kload on the VA hospitals. I agree, the only difference in VA and private medical care is the VA people are government employ ees, which in turn allows the federal government absolute control, which of course is the whole pur pose of this administration The most transparent administration, as promised back in 2008, has become the most deceptiv e and closed administration in recent memory. Read Bob Gates recent book, Duty ... Memories of a D efense S ecretary, and get a look at how the Oval ofce views the world. The 2014 elections are an absolute reason to change the makeup in the U.S. S enate if w e are to stop the further erosion of our Constitution and further sliding into Socialism.

Brian walked over to our gr ouped acr oss 27 with his arms lled with bottles of cold water. His rst words to me were Thank you for your service, then he said Thanks for our patriotism. I want to say thanks from The Highlands Tea Party to Brian, and the mem ber of Alan Jay Nissan for their hospitality The water was welcome in the 90-degree heat. I also want to extend a big thanks to B oom Booms Guns and Ammo for sponsoring the event. A veteran showed up to wave a ag, who had open heart surgery a week ago. What a veteran! Thanks Terry for your service/patriotism. We were honored by young man currently serving. He drove by and said to himself, I have to be in volved. He came and took a ag in hand. I want to thanks to all of the drivers who honked, gav e us waves and high signs I am disappointed in the number of people who sho w ed total indifference to the ag of our country, by turning away or giving us offensive gestures. Very sad!JOHN NN ELSONChairman, The Highlands Tea PartyA commencement speaker at Point Park University here in Pittsburgh urged graduates to brush their teeth. Whether she was grasping at a clev er metaphor for handling life after college or she actually felt that a diploma along with good dental hy giene were keys to happiness, I couldn t tell. Commencement speeches come in many avors. Ill be attending three college graduation ceremonies this month and I imagine that besides tooth br ushing Ill also hear about rising to ones full potential, reaching for the stars, and not being discouraged by failure. Solid advice, indeed. But to the Class of 2014 I also offer this: %  Read a newspaper Also, watch C-SPAN periodical ly, become a fan of Minutes, and try listening to NPR. The mor e college students I speak with, the more alar med I become about the general disregard for current events. I dont mean whats trending on the Internet or whats hot in Hollywood, I mean real news. If you tru ly hope to get ahead, keep up with the infor mation y ou ought to know not just the material you want to know. %  Limit mobile devices. A t Point Park, administrators were compelled to warn students not to use cellphones while crossing the stage to receive their diplomas. They should have extended the ban to the seating areas, where thumbs tapped furiously throughout the speeches. Instant com munication has revolutionized our lives and your gener ation, but dont let it become an obsession. %  Go slo wly. Sure, you want a good career, a lot of mon ey and a family of your own. B ut if those things don t pres ent themselves immediately, then get a paid internship, wor k for a non-pr ot, or be a volunteer if you can afford to. Do the things that many of us wish we had done after college, and then found too difcult to arrange once our lives became mor e complicated. %  Call home After college I went for almost a decade in a self-absorbed world of my own. I felt I didnt need help with life, and I took that to mean I could drift away from my family. Big mistake. The time is pr ecious and if y ou squander it now, chances are youll regret it later. Being independent doesnt mean cutting fam ily ties. %  Vote Now theres an unusu al piece of advice for college gr ads but its troubling to learn how many people in their twenties arent registered and dont v ote Sometimes its because they are transplanted to new communities; or, its just a conviction that a single vote wont mean anything. Voting is not only your civic respon sibility, it actually makes you feel good when y ou do it. %  Smile once each day We live in an age when the letters LOL are typed routinely by people sitting at key boards without even cracking a smile Laughing out loud or at least smiling isnt just a mental exercise, its a facial exercise; in fact, its a fullbody wor kout. And tr y doing it once in a while when youre alone. Andy Rooney was right when he said, If you smile when no ones around, it proves you really mean it. %  Go somewher e. As soon as you can manage it, get out of the country and see what the rest of the world is about. Broadening the horizons of your mind is enhanced by ex panding the horizons of your tr av els. %  Get o ver yourself. At graduation they pump you up because youve earned it. Now, get r eal. The diploma counts for a lot, but it doesnt mean you know it all or even a small part of it. View the next phase of life as an even greater learning experience than the one you just went through. In fact, if you really want to help your own cause, sign up now for that literature class you were afraid to take last year because it might have hurt your GPA. Plus, I suppose, you should brush after meals and oss reg ularly. If nothing else it will cut the dental bills once y our par ents are no longer paying them.

Memo rial gifts may be made to Wild wood Lifestyle Center 435 Lifestyle Lane, Wildwood, GA 30757-4174. PALSGROVE OBITUARIES NEWS-SUN neighborhoods. This years hurricane season begins Sunday. To help get people pr epar ed, Highlands County Emergency M anagement ofcials will present a hurricane seminar at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agr icultur al Civic Center this Saturday beginning at 10 / a.m. Among other things the meaning and different levels of warnings will be explained, information will be distr ibuted on wher e emer gency shelters are located and where water and ice might be av ailable as w ell as instructions on building and maintaining hurricane supply kits and where to nd emer gency infor mation. We will have pamphlets and some handouts, said Highlands County Public Information Ofcer Gloria Ry binski. We usually have a few speakers to pr esent infor mation. It usually lasts about an hour and half. F lorida emergency ofcials are especially urging elderly citizens to take precautions to ensure they are prepared. They say people with mobil ity issues or health problems should r egister with local emergency ofcials for extra help in a major storm. The Florida Department of Elder Affairs is urging people to prepare evacuation kits with a supply of their reg ular prescription medications, water, ashlights, nonper ishable foods and other items they might need if they get stuck on the road while evacuating. Ofcials also say it is important for people to know wher e they will go if a stor m approaches and to leave well ahead of the storm. On Sunday, the state will begin a nine-day tax-free holiday on hurricane readi ness supplies to help in the effor t. I t will cover hurricane supplies such as ashlights, batteries, weather radios and other basic items. It was the hurricane sea sons of 2004 and 2005 that pr ompted state ofcials to start offering the tax-free holidays. The sales tax holiday is expected to save Flor ida families $3.7 million as they pr epar e for the upcoming hurricane season. The N ational O ceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts between eight and 13 named storms this season, which lasts until Nov. 30. Thr ee to six could become hurricanes with one or two major stor ms SEMIN aA R F rR O mM pagePAGE A1for the upcoming cycle as well as other exciting things that ar e happening in our ofce, Ogg said. Among other things will be the possible splitting of the countys largest polling place Pre cinct 15. That decision apparently was driven by the fact the Restor ation Center located at the intersection of S tate Road 66 and Sparta Road is in foreclosure. There had been indications as far back as 2012 that the facility might not be able to be used, but Ogg said they had held off the decision, hoping the property might have been sold. However, with elec tion dates looming on the hor iz on, Ogg said she felt that new provisions now needed to be made. Preliminary plans reportedly call for the precinct to be split. Some of the voters would be sent to Lake Jo sephine Baptist Church with the r est to cast their ballots at the Bible Fellow ship Church. Also P recinct 21, which now is located at South Florida S tate C ollege, may go away altogether. That reportedly is a r esult of annexations b y the city of A v on Park. Ogg said it now has reached the point where it does not make sense nancially to maintain a pres ence at the school, as ther e no w may not be enough voters there to support a polling place B oth of those changes are scheduled to be brought to H ighlands C ounty commissioners at their meeting this coming T uesday. ELECTION F rR O mM pagePAGE A1 NewsSS un leHurricane Francis made a slow-motion trek across the state in September of 2004, leaving behind plenty of damage. TOM KRISHERAP Auto WriterDETROIT General Motors recalled a small number of Pontiac G6 midsize cars to x a faulty brake light system in 2009, yet waited more than ve years to call back o v er 2 million other cars with the same system, accor ding to company docu ments led with feder al safety regulators. The documents led Thursday, show that GM recalled about 8,000 Pontiacs from the 2005 and 2006 model years because the brake lights might not work when the driver stepped on the brake pedal. But the company didnt recall later-model G6s or the Chevrolet Malibu and Saturn Aura until three weeks ago. The cars are nearly identical. GM says the prob lem has caused 13 accidents and 2 injuries. GM thought the addition of a lubricant would x the pr oblem in new er cars, but it pr o ved insufcient. Dealers were made aware of the problem, but car owners werent told directly. As a re sult, a potential safety pr oblem w ent uncor rected for years. The company waited to recall the other cars until this year because the pr oblem didnt happen as frequently as it did in the 2005 and 2006 G6 models spokesman Alan Adler said. We were monitoring these vehicles and looking to see what was hap pening with them all along, he said. We made a decision that we thought was appro priate. I n addition, the N ational Highway Trafc S afety A dministration didnt pressure GM to recall the newer cars. It even closed an investigation into the matter in 2009 after GM announced the initial G6 r ecall. The company says it has changed its criteria for recalling cars. I t no w issues recalls based on the severity of a safety problem rather than the number of warr anty claims or complaints A dler said. Its another example of how GM previously resisted recalling cars and trucks to x safety problems. The company is fac ing investigations from C ongr ess and the Justice Department over why it waited at least a decade to r ecall about 2.6 million older small cars to x an ignition switch problem. The company says that problem is linked to crashes that killed 13 people, but trial law yers say the death toll is at least 60.Documents show another delayed GM recallDocuments: GM recalled Pontiac midsize cars but left 2 nearly identical models on the road in 2009 TAMPA (AP) A Seattle man has pleaded guilty to charges related to sending letters to GOP donors questioning their citizenship status and ability to vote in the 2012 election.

Married for 25 years and restless after the move, they began to think about what to do next. Mary was aware of the need for foster par ents. The idea of opening their home to children in need had been fester ing in the back of my mind, she said. She contacted the Florida Baptist Childrens Home in Lakeland to get information, but did nothing r ight away One day their church, Highlands Community Church, had a guest speaker. He was a missionary involved overseas, but reminded the congre gation one didnt have to jour ney to distance places to do Gods work. I felt as if he was speaking directly to me, Mary said. I asked G ary if he thought the same thing, and he said yes. When the couple ar rived home from the ser vice ther e was an email follow-up from the Baptist Childrens Home. Okay God, I gotcha, Mary said, and she and G ar y applied. They have been taking in children for going on three years now. T ypically they hav e ve at a time. Most of their foster children have been v e y ears or younger. Theyve come in all colors shapes and sizes a few ar riving with only the clothes on their backs Some children stay for months, some only a few days. The most difcult part of fostering, Gary said, is saying goodbye to the children when they go back to their families. Thats the heart problem, said Mary. When they come in they are my children. I rock them to sleep. I take them to the doc tor. Its a big adjustment for everyone when someone leav es for the other kids and for us. But Im just here to take care of the children while their par ents cant. I m 57 years old, Gary said. Ive done more crying in the last three years than I did in the 54 years before. Its hard to let go. He smiled, But the mem ories of these children last a lifetime. I wouldn t take $5 billion for them. There have been moments of challenge. F or example one very young boy insisted on pushing the beds and cribs around the oor. It got to be a problem. Gary said he waited until the boy was at day car e and screwed all the beds to the walls. One 4-year-old had never used a fork. At their rst meal togeth er, the child lowered his head to the plate and sho ved the food into his mouth using his hands. And while the couple started out using bunk beds, they stopped when one boy refused to use the ladder and kept jumping to the oor instead. Ashley Vaughn is the Franklins case work er. (Gary and Mary) take kids in with open ar ms, and create a sup port system, she said. Then added that what makes them so unusual as foster par ents is the effort they put into building relationships with the parents, to get them inv olv ed with their children. For opening their hearts and home, for helping parents and children get back to gether and for putting other people s needs before their own, the News-Sun is privileged UNSUNG FROM PAGE A A 1 Katara Simmons/News-Sun GG ary Franklin talks about a tandem bike they call the limo, which he rides with some of the older foster kids.

F inancially speaking, the city is in excellent shape, City Manager Julian Deleon said in an email to the N ews-Sun. Our general fund has a reserve balance of 41 per cent of the total gener al fund expenditures. M ost or ganizations aim for 20 percent. Because expenditures were minimized in 2013, w e added $492,075 to the gener al fund, bringing total r eser ves to (more than $2.5 million). This was accomplished despite a decrease of almost $200,000 in pr oper ty tax revenue due to lowering the millage rate fr om 5.9 mills in 2012 to 3.6 mills in 2013. Avon Parks enterprise funds also sho w ed growth. The water and sewer fund revenues increased by more than $885,000 to $2.8 million, and solid waste revenues increased more than $23,000. I n all, ex cess revenue increased by more than $900,000 to more than $2.6 million. The airport fund remains a disappointment, however, continuing to operate at a loss F or years the air port revenues, which come fr om r ental of facilities, have been up and do wn, typically in the red. In fact, the auditors said, the airport fund owes the sani tation department mor e than $500,000 from what can called an in-house loan. The city should either set up a repayment sched ule, the auditors said, or for giv e the debt and take it off the books. That is a decision the city council will have to make. Last year we did not complete our audit in a timely manner, De leon said in his email. B ecause of delays, we went past the required state law deadline. For this year, we completed the audit within the allo wable time fr ame in compliance with state law. Auditors had made 13 signicant ndings over the years, Deleon said. In 2013 the city cleared seven of those issues and partially cleared another two. This leaves us with four more ndings that need to be cleared go ing into 2014. M ost of the issues inv olve internal control, like the need for mor e precise accounting or clearer policy language in specic situations. For example, the auditors said there is confusion regarding the limit for petty cash expenditures. One city publication states a $25 maximum, another says $50. The city also needs to do an inv entory of all its equipment and tools, the auditors said, and regularly review of journal entries for ac curacy. 3035666 3035675 AUDIT FROM PAGE A A 1 DELEON JESSE J.

S he came into the room, recalled Al Sharpton, and she said: The rst problem is you dont have women in here of equal status. We need to cor rect you before you can corr ect the countr y. Angelou, who died Wednesday at 86, made an impact on American culture that transcended her soar ing poetry and searing memoirs S he was the nations wise woman, a poet to presidents, an unapologetic conscience who became such a touchstone that gr ief over her loss poured from political leaders, celebrities and or dinar y people in generous doses. Above all, she was a storyteller and her greatest stories were true, President Barack Obama said. Never hesitant to speak her mind, An gelou passionately defended the rights of women, young people and the ignored. She effortlessly traversed the worlds of literature and activism, becoming a condante to the or iginal civil r ights leaders, their successors and the current gener ation. Ive seen many things, Ive learned many things, Angelou told The Associated Press in 2013. Ive cer tainly been exposed to many things and Ive learned something: I owe it to you to tell you. Marc Morial, presi dent of the National U rban League remembered the incredibly po w erful experience of being invited to Angelous home. They sat at her kitchen table for hours Morial said, as Angelou told stories and talked about life, art, culture and humankind. W ith equal parts majesty and humility, she held court and I listened intently absorbing every word and meaning that she had to impart, Morial said. A for mer singer and dancer as well as once being the rst black streetcar conductor in San Francisco she also put her impr int on the new world of celebrity, mentoring Oprah Winfrey, instructing Alicia Keys in lining out, a call-and-r esponse form of singing popular in Southern black chur ches acting in a television sketch with Richard Pryor and inspiring singers, authors and actors of all r aces and genders. Angelou was a phenomenal woman of insight, eloquence and ar tistr y who gave voice to the rawness and loftiness of our history and our humanity, said R ep Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., the nations rst female H ouse speaker. Angelous talents and platforms were boundless: poetry, books, mo vies the spoken word, television, a weekly SiriusXM satellite radio show and ev en Twitter and Facebook. She collected accolades from all por tions of society: a Tony A war d in 1973 for her appearance in the play Look Away; three Grammys for her spoken-word albums; an honor ar y National Book Award for her contr ibutions to the literary community; a National Medal of Arts; and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the countrys highest civil ian honor.

Or, whats the state record for bluegill or crappie. Obviously, a lot of shermen dont know the answers, and some, who believe they know, are wrong. For example, many shermen believe the Florida State record for a largemouth bass is over 20 pounds. They are off by a good three pounds. The ofcial Florida State record is 17.27 pounds, caught and certied in 1986 by Bill OBerry in an un named lake in Polk C ounty There have been a number of bigger largemouth bass caught, or at least claimed to have been caught, but none were certied and recognized by the state. The most famous and certainly a sh that could have been the ofcial state record was caught by F r ederick Friebel in Big Fish Lake in 1923, weighing in at 20 pounds 2 ounces. This sh was caught on a Creek Chub num ber 700 Pikie Minnow nine years before G eor ge Perrys world record largemouth that weighed 22.4 pounds. But the weight of the sh was never certi ed and as a result, stands in the r ecor d books as the unofcial Florida State record. A ccor ding to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, uncertied state record means it is believ ed to be accurate based on reliable witnesses and other evidence, but is not cer tiable according to FWC reg ulations.

Due to the recent downpours, Elite Plumbing and Firemen had to reschedule their Monday night game for Wednesday.

In addition, Pool Paradises Desmond Gaines, who was at tending as a spectator, was pulled from the bleachers to play for E lite Plumbing. Sporting his school clothes, Gaines was the ninth player Elite Plumbing needed to play. Boys who come to play ball do just that come to play ball, so neither team was going home without playing.

www.newssun.comFriday, May 30, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A11 3035688 3044373 Photo courtesy of www.luckylures.nlThis whopping, 21.6875-pounder, caught by Jed Dickerson in Lake Dixon, California on May 31, 2003, is just fth on the alltime record list.17.27 pounds, and has been for the last 28 years. Surely there has to be a bass larger than 17 pounds swimming around in one of our lakes here in Highlands County. Of course catching it is another matter. Two years ago, the Florida Fish and Wild life Commission created Trophy Catch, a pr ogr am that recognizes trophy catches in ev er y species. Ive mentioned it before in this column. I t s easy to register a sh, and worth it to just register since they give away a boat, motor and trailer every y ear to one of the lucky people who registered on the site. Cash awards, as well as certicates are available to shermen w eighing in their catch. Any one who shes in the state of Florida should register. But what about some of the other popular gamesh in Florida? Again, most sher men dont readily know when they catch a lar ge sh if its a potential state record or not. The following list may help. The recognized state record for Black Crap pie is 3.83 pounds; B luegill is 2.95 pounds; Redear Sunsh is 4.86 pounds; Warmouth is 2.44 pounds; Chain Pickerel is 6.96 pounds; Longnose Gar is 41 pounds and the Blue Tilapia is 9.38 pounds. Other species listed for the state of Florida can be found on their website. For those of you in terested in the World R ecor d Largemouth Bass, and the top 25 largest bass according to B.A.S.S., the list is painfully lacking big sh fr om Florida. The Top 25 Large mouth Bass of all time 1a. 22.3106, caught b y Kurita, Manabu in Lake Biwi, Japan on July 2, 2009 1b. 22.2500, caught by George Perry in Montgomery Lake, Georgia on June 2, 1932 3. 22.0100, caught by Robert Crupi in Lake Castiac, California on March 12, 1991 4. 21.7500, caught by Mike Arujo in Lake Castiac, California on March 5, 1991 5. 21.6875, caught by Jed Dickerson in Lake Dixon, California on May 31, 2003 6. 21.2000, caught by Raymond Easley in Lake Casitas, California on March 4, 1980 7. 21.0100, caught by Robert Crupi in Lake Castiac, California on March 9, 1990 8. 20.9375, caught by Dave Zimmerlee in Lake Miramar, Califor nia on June 23, 1973 9. 20.8600, caught b y Leo Torres in Lake Castiac, California on February 4, 1990 10. 20.7500, caught b y Mike Long in Lake Dixon, California on April 27, 2001 11. 20.2500, caught by Gene Dupras in Lakes Hodges, Califor nia on May 30, 1985 12. 20.1250, caught b y Fritz Friebel in Big Fish Lake, Florida on May 19, 1923 13. 19.7000, caught by George Coniglio in Lake Mission Vie jo, California on March 21, 2006 14. 19.5000, caught b y Mark Balloid in Lake Castiac, California on May 28, 1990 14. 19.5000, caught by Randy Crabtree in Lake Casitas, California on April 9, 2002 14. 19.5000, caught by Keith Gunsauls in Lake Miramar, Cali fornia on February 29, 1988 17. 19.4375, caught b y Mac Weakley in Dixon Lake, California on M ay 20, 2003 18. 19.2500, caught by Chris Brant in Lake Miramar, California on March 22, 1998 19. 19.1875, caught by Steve Beasley in Lake Wohlford, Califor nia on February 3, 1986 19. 19.1875, caught b y Charles Hanline in Lake Morena, Califor nia on February 17, 1987 21. 19.1500, caught b y Kazuya Shimada in Lake Ikehara, Japan on April 22, 2003 22. 19.0625, caught by Sandra DeFranco in Lake Miramar, Califor nia on March 14, 1988 23. 19.0400, caught b y Dan Kadota in Lake Castiac, California on January 8, 1989 24. 19.0313, caught by Larry Kerns in Suc cess Lake, California on J anuar y 27, 2001 25. 19.0000, caught by Riley Witt in Lake Tarpon, Florida on June 26, 1961 So there you have it! The top 25 largest bass according to the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society, (B.A.S.S.). H o w many of these sh are actually certied and recognized by their r espectiv e states or countries is another matter. But it is surprising that on this list there are only two bass from the state of Florida. Whats not so surpris ing is that all the bass, ev en those caught in Japan have been certied as Florida strainlar gemouth bass Its time Florida starts adding a few wallhangers to the list!Don Norton is a professional tournament bass sherman, bass shing guide, and custom rod b uilder He lives in the Golf Hammock area of Se bring with his wife Lexie, and is the o wner of a custom rod building company appropriate ly named The American Fisherman.

RECORD FRO mM PAGE A A 9 BY JOHN RAWLINGS GG uest ColumnistA recent survey taken by B.A.S.S. establishing the top 100 bass sher ies in the United States of Amer ica left Lake Istokpoga off the list, raising the question, Why? Could it be since they had the Major League Fishing Show tele vised nationwide with the best sher men world saying the lake was a tough shery? Could it be even though the Fish and Wildlife Commission recommends 20-40 percent aquatic veg etation, the lake has gotten as lo w as 12 per cent due to the ex cessive weed eradication? I n mid-2000, the Florida Lake Istokpoga had a plan to take Lake Istokpoga to a new level of bass shing experience, a trophy bass lake M illions of dollars were spent bulldozing the dead sediment left fr om the y ears of submerged weeds that had been treated with chemicals and left to rest on the bottom of the lake. This raises another question. After they removed the sediment off the bottom of the lake down to the sand, why did they return to kill ing the submerged w eeds again causing the same problem all over again? Not to mention all the sh we lost when the gates were opened. Now they have used stronger or different chemicals to eradicate the weeds because the weeds have built up a tolerance to previous chemicals used. Since Lake Istokpo ga is sometimes used for irr igation, I wonder if these chemicals are getting into our food chain and also from sh caught from the lake. The pan shermen went home with their tails between their legs because the spec and bream shing was way off. Could this be due to the water clarity affect ing the sh to spawn? A water clar ity r eading taken by a Secchi Disk from 2001 thr ough 2004 sho ws it decreased 40 percent in Lake Istokpoga. The last time I was on the lake, you couldnt see down six inches. Lately I have heard several people refer to it as the mud hole. Many people be lieve if we get rid of the w eeds the alligators, snakes and unwanted species will leave the lake. That is true to some extent, but these crea tures are a part of the beauty of F lor ida. Lake Jackson is a good example of what happens when you get rid of all the weeds. It is great for skiing, but not for shing or sightseeing. I dont see very many skiers and even less people shing on Lake Jackson. At one time you could catch 50 bass in a single day on Lake Is tokpoga and limits of specs and br im w ere common. Twenty-ve pound bags of sh were not uncommon with most tournament sher men and most of them caught sh. M ost sher men that had visited the area couldnt wait to come back because of the great shing. Now 25 pounds might win a tourna ment, but a major ity of the anglers get skunked. The question must be asked, why Okeechobees water clarity is so much better than Istokpogas. O keechobee made the top 100 list at number 6. K issimmee was 21st, Stick Marsh ranked 42nd and St. Johns was 48th. Could it be that too much of a good thing has gone sour and the lake needs to return to at least 20-40 percent submerged weeds like the LakeWatch people recommended back in early 2000. If we could take a deep breath for a year or so and let na ture repair the damaged excessive chemical spraying, digging the tussock and bur ning off acr es of natural v egetation has done wouldnt it be interesting to see if there was some impr o vement in the sheries. The hydrilla and the pond weed, which by the way helps lter the water, has all but dis appeared. The old saying spoken by many pros, F ind the grass and you will nd the bass, is true. Since Lake Istokpoga is mostly a shing lake you would think the county and the Florida Wildlife Commission would try to do things to improve the sh ing including stocking Lake Istokpoga fr om the FWCs state of the art hatchery. Everyone that cares about Lake Istokpoga needs to ask why it was left out of the top 100 lakes in the nation when at one time it was number 3. Now it has the nick name the mud hole.

But thats when the Tractors kicked it into gear and took the lead for good. Five runs would come across in the bottom of the third, highlighted by a Dayvon Terry RBI triple. Another run was milked for the visitors in the fourth to squeeze a little closer, but another ve runs came across in the bottom of the frame. With a run in and the bases loaded, Lusby blasted a shot to deep center eld for a triple to make it 11-3, and when Fautheree followed with a single to bring Lusby in, the lead stood at 12-3. Wheelock came on in relief and got a strike out to end the frame, but Terry took to the hill for the Tractors and struck out the side in the fth before two more runs scored in the bottom to end this one on the mercy rule. The Tractor Service traveled down to Lake Placid to face Bevis Construction Thursday night and are off until Tuesday, June 3, when they will take on Bevis again, this time at Max Long. Got Milk is back in action Monday, June 2, against Sweet Frogs at Max Long. TRACTOR FROM PAGE A9 Dan Hoehne/News-SunLucas Missall belted this pitch for an RBI double Tuesday night. putting Firemen up 2-0 after their rst at-bat. Elite Plumbing was able to respond with a run of their own in the bottom of the rst. A single from Sam Lieske and another borrowed player Gaines followed by Abe Cerveras walk loaded the bases with only one out. A elders choice then scored Lieske to put the board now at 2-1. The top of the second saw no scoring opportunities for Firemen, while Elite Plumbing overcame the lead in the bottom of the inning. Tyler Simmons beat out a throw to put himelf on second base before Kaleb Lindsey drew a walk and both stole bases to put two runners in scoring position. Kyle Mercers pop-up caused some confusion amongst the Firemen defense, allowing it to fall to the ground and score Simmons to tie things up. The Firemen defense still appeared a bit shaky, which allowed Lindsey to score and Elite Plumbing to take their rst lead of the night. With runners in scoring position again, Gaines grounder was elded by the Firemen third baseman, who was able to recoup from the mishaps and throw out Gaines. This effort, however, scored one more for the Plumber boys to put them up 4-2. In spite of a shaking performance in the last inning, Firemen took back their lead in the top of the third. Cody Little, Price and Spoone quickly loaded the bases before Smith stepped into the batters box, drawing a walk and bringing in another Firemen run. Hicks then rattled the eld just like the lingering thunderstorm, sending a grand slam over the fence. Elite Plumbing could not respond to this, despite putting two men on base, ending the third inning 7-4 with the lead back in Firemens hands. Not to be silenced just yet, Elites defense forced Firemen to go three up, three down in the top of the fourth. Then, in the bottom of the same inning, Elite Plumbing crept back on Firemens lead. Mercer, Lieske and Gaines loaded the bases early on before Cerveras single scored two runs to see the score now at 7-6. Elite Plumbing ended the inning with the bases loaded, and where they could not capitalize in the bottom of the fourth, they made up for it in the bottom of the fth. Simmons stole home to tie the game up one more time before Lieskes RBI scored Lindsey to give Elite Plumbing the lead again. Three outs later, Elite Plumbing won the game. While the win was not an of cial one, it certainly gave each team some learning experiences. They came out and hit the ball, but they kind of took the night for granted, said Firemen coach Issac Martz. They just did not get the runs when they needed to, and (Elite Plumbing) came out with their best pitcher and shut us down when they needed to. Martz spoke of Cervera, a southpaw who performed well for Elite Plumbing throughout the night. The kids played very well, shared Elite Plumbing coach Micky Mercer. We had some struggles with the bats towards the bottom of the lineup, but the kids did very well. Theyre coming along and I know they are going to make it, he said, and hopefully the nights outcome gave them the con dence boost they needed. All of the kids have improved a lot, and Im proud of them.

LIVING BFriday, May 30, 2014Drive with CareAccording to the American Academy of Pediatrics, motor vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death and acquired disability for children and teens. These tips can help you and your children to stay out of harms way while in or around vehicles. Teach your children to buckle up every time they get into a car, regardless of the length of the car ride. Buckling children in ageand size-appropriate car seats, booster seats and seat belts dramatically reduces the risk of serious and fatal injuries. Check around your parked car for children before you pull away. Teach children to be aware of moving vehicles and to wait in safe areas where drivers can see them. Accompany young children when they get in and out of a vehicle. Hold their hands when walking near moving vehicles, in driveways and parking lots. Mowing MattersWhile it may seem like just a common household tool, thousands of children are injured in lawn mower accidents each year, some with severe effects. Teach children to never play on or around a lawn mower, even when it is not in use. They should never be permitted to walk along side, in front of or behind a moving mower. Children under six years of age should be kept inside the home while mowing.Fire Safety SimplifiedEvery hour, approximately 16 children are injured from res or burns, according to the Safe Kids Worldwide organization. Use these tips to keep your little ones safe around reworks, grills and other heat sources: Teach kids never to play with matches, gaso line, lighter uid or lighters. Make a habit of placing these items up and away from young children. Do not leave children unattended near grills, camp res, re pits or bonres. Always have a bucket of water or re extinguisher nearby when burning res. To ensure a safe celebration, leave reworks to the professionals. If your child is injured by re or reworks, immediately take them to a doctor or hospital.Playground 101The Centers for Disease Control revealed that emergency departments treat more than 200,000 children ages 14 and younger for playground-related injuries every year. Before you let them play at the park or school playground, be sure they keep these precautions in mind: Use appropriate and properly tting safety equipment when participating in any sport, such as helmets and goggles, which can greatly reduce the risk of head and eye injuries. Take your children to playgrounds with shock absorbing surfaces. Choose parks and play grounds that are appropriate for their age. Check for hazards or broken equipment and continuously supervise your children while they are at play. Teach children to use playground and sports equipment properly. Remind children that pushing, shoving and crowding on the playground can result in accidents and injuries.Make a Safe SplashWhile playing poolside may be a blast, the Safe Kids Worldwide organization also revealed that drowning is the leading injury-related cause of death for children between 1 years of age. Fill your familys summer days with these safe practices around the water: Teach children to never go near or in the water without an adult present. Children and adults should never swim alone. Give children your undivided attention when they are swimming or near any body of water. Always have your children wear a Coast Guard approved, properly tting life jacket while on a boat, around an open body of water or when participating in water sports. To learn more, visit www.shrinershospitalsforchildren.org/safesummer. Family Features Summer is a time of playground fun, camping, swimming and other outdoor activities. When kids are outdoors, their sense of adventure and curiosity soars, which can, unfortunately, lead to a higher risk of injuries.In fact, according to the Safe Kids Worldwide organization, each year one in four children 14 years of age and younger will sustain an injury that requires medical attention. The good news is that many of these injuries are preventable by following a few simple tips and learning how to avoid accidents and injuries. We know kids are active, especially during the summer months, said John Cinotto, chairman of the board of directors of Shriners Hospitals for Children. At Shriners Hospitals for Children, we see patients every day with lifechanging injuries caused by accidents. Were always working to help raise awareness that our medical experts are here to get young patients back on track to the childhood they deserve, regardless of the families ability to pay. Here are some tips to help your family safely enjoy all the fun summer has in store. LOVE TO THE RESCUEWith a talented and experienced team of medical professionals, Shriners Hospitals for Children is transforming lives every day through innovative pediatric specialty care, world-class research and outstanding medical education. One young patient who experienced this remarkable care is 14 year-old Brendon Wiseley, who lost his foot and part of his leg in a lawn mower accident. A fth genera tion race car driver, Wiseley was referred to Shriners Hospitals for Children when his rst prosthetic leg did not t correctly and was dif cult to use. The event had caused him to lose hope of ever racing again. But with an experienced team of medical experts, he was provided with a custom-built prosthetic and child-centric rehabilitation that not only rebuilt his strength, but also his spirit. I was injured in a lawn mower accident. Thanks to Shriners Hospitals for Children, I was able to get back to doing what I love, said Wiseley, who is now a patient ambas sa dor for the organization.

M y son says he cannot convince her to lighten up a bit. I dont know what to do. I am ... SO CONCERNED FOR HER IN ILLINOISDEAR SO CONCERNED: Y ou ar e right to be concerned for your daughter-in-law. For years, dermatologists have cautioned the public about the dangers of exposur e to the sun. With the invention of tanning beds, the rates of melanoma among young people have soared. For anyone who isnt aware, mela noma is an aggressive type of skin cancer that can be fatal. T anning can be addictive, and you should ur ge y our daughterin-law to discuss this with a dermatologist. Because tanning also causes premature ag ing of the skin, she should explor e sunless tanning, which is much safer DEAR ABBY : We play softball at school a lot, and I cant play well.

Family wants mom to lighten up on tan DEAR AA BBY J OCELOCEL Y NN NONO V ECEC KAP National WriterMaybe its too soon to say the tide has shifted denitively. But its certainly been a unique time for fairy-tale villains. After hundreds of years of moral clarity, suddenly were getting a new look at these evil creatures, who are actually turning out to be complex be ings, and not that bad at all. R eally theyve just been misunder stood. (And, by the way those char ming princes? Highly over rated.) The most ob vious r ecent example is F rozen, the animated Disney blockbuster that showed us how the S no w Queen, long portrayed as an icyhearted villain, was actually a tragic victim of circumstance, with a pur e and lo ving heart. And now w e have Malecent, which tells us that one of the most evil char acters in all of pop cultur e is equally vulner able and misunderstood. All this is a r ather seismic dev elopment in fairytale-dom. Ther e ar e numerous versions of Sleeping Beauty, stemming back even before Charles Perraults fr om 1697, but the fairy who casts an angry spell on the baby pr incess dooming her to prick her nger, has always been, well, just nasty. But now, 55 years af ter Disney introduced the char acter named Malecent in its 1959 classic lm and colored her skin an eerie gr een the studio is back with a live-action (not to mention 3D) Malecent whos more superheroine than evil fairy. Think Malecent by way of Lara Croft. And though Malecent is no longer green-skinned, it s hard not to think of another greenskinned villainess whos also been reha bilitated, by means of the dur able B roadway hit Wicked: the witch E lphaba fr om The Wizard of Oz, who, it turns out, we just didnt know enough about. And so it is in Ma lecent, in which director Robert Stromberg and screenwriter Linda W oolv erton take us back to the fairys youth to better understand her. Shes a plucky y oung thing with lovely wings and bright pink lipstick, which will turn bloodred when she becomes an adult (the fair y world clearly isn t lacking for cosmetics.) One day she meets a young man from that other, darker world, where humans live. The two form a strong bond. But the ugli est human emotions jealousy and ambition will intervene. Young S tefan will grow into the power-hun gry older Stefan (the wild-ey ed S outh African actor Sharlto Copley.) And his stunning betr ayal of M alecent will instantly harden her, turning her into the villainess we recognize. Alas the stor ys still all about a guy, in the end. But we digress. Malecent is sure ly targeted to the same audience y oung and female which has so lovingly embraced Frozen and its appealing message of female solidar ity and empowerment. But Frozen felt clever, charming, and fr esh. Malecent, less so. Part of this is due, paradoxically, to Jo lies star wattage. Dont get us wr ong: she s the best thing about the movie, and always worth watching. But it blunts the effectiveness of the narrative if w e can nev er quite believe Malecent is bad. Thats because we know shes essen tially good, and she seems to kno w that w e know it; You can see it in the upturned wrin kle of her mouth. And fr ankly the other characters are simply not that interesting Stefan, but also E lle F annings Aurora, or Sleeping Beauty. In the end, Malecent is fun for its appealing visuals especially in the forest and for watching J olie. But thats not enough to make the whole lm interesting. As the minutes tick by, you might even start feeling a bit like Sleep ing Beauty herself comes to feel: D r owsy. Malecent, a Walt Disney Studios release, is rated PG by the M otion Pictur e Association of America for sequences of fantasy action and violence including frightening images.

www.newssun.comFriday, May 30, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | B3 HEALTh H Y L LIVING I would have taken better care of my bones B one mass peaks in the early 30s. After that, everyone begins losing bone (osteoporosis). This makes the bones more vulnerable to fractures especially in the ver tebrae (bone building blocks of the spine), the wr ist and hip. Women start losing bone mass earlier and lose 30-50 percent of their bone mass. Men start losing bone later and, on average, have larger bones. As a re sult, they lose about 20-30 per cent of their total mass. In 2005 $19 billion was spent on treating osteoporotic fractures. Compression frac tures (squashing the bone) in either the last vertebra xed in place by the rib or the rst of the unconstrained vertebra of the lo w er back were called grandma fractures. As men are living past 80 when the bone loss in men catches up with that in women, grand pa is starting to have the same pr oblem. O ne third of men with hip fractures and one in ve women will die within one year of hip fracture. After a hip fracture, only one third of patients will return to pre-injury function. Many will not be able to return to indepen dent living. H er edity, smoking, excessive alcohol intake, some drugs especially steroids and inactivity ar e all r isk factors. Vitamin D and calcium deencies are common as people eat out more. The current recommended daily amount of calcium is 1,000-1,200 units and for vitamin D is 400800 units. Milk, even low fat milk has both calcium and vitamin D. The best predictor of sufcient bone to pre vent fracture is a signicant fall without a fr actur e in your hip, wrist or vertebra. Since this testing method has obvious drawbacks, Dexa scanning is pr eferr ed. It is recommended for women ov er 50 and men over 65. For those with risk factors, scanning may be started at a younger age. A quick scr eening test you can do your self is to subtract your age fr om y our weight in kilograms and divide by ve. Women with a score of less than 2 and men with a scor e of less than 4 are considered at risk. What can you do to decrease your fracture risk? Make sure you get enough calcium and vitamin D in your diet. Stop smoking. (This is easier said than done but will do many oth er good things for your o v erall health). Start doing regular weightbearing exercise (think walking). This is also good for your heart and your weight. If these are not enough then you may want to talk to your doctor about bone strengthening drugs. Most of these work by slowing the work of the bone clean up cells (osteoclasts) to remove dead bone. There is also one that works by increasing bone for mation. Y ou can also help your children and grandchildren by encouraging healthy diet and exer cise habits to build a bigger bone mass. It is also far easier not to start smoking than it is to stop. O ur D ad always told us that we did not have to worry about the longterm effect of smoking as he would just kill us now.

GUEST COLU mM NDr. Diana Carr Soon-to-be high school graduates Juan Patino, Tamara Stokes, Jessie Sanders and Jessica Sturgill are recipients of the annual Sonni Family Foundation Scholarship. After four years of hard work and dedication, the seniors will be on their way to college with the help of longtime community business owners and philanthropists Ashok and Rajeswarl Sonni. The Sonnis built a successful medical practice from the ground up. Dr. Rajeswari was an early pediatrician and neonatologist in Highlands County while her physician husband Ashok Sonni was an Orthopedic Surgeon when they landed here 32 years ago. They have never forgotten their own humble beginnings In India and the help they received from others when they needed it most. We have been a part of this community for many years. We just want to give back a small portion of what we received both In India and here in United States. We want to be active in the community in a positive way Sonni said. The Sonnis have long been supporters of local organizations such as the Childrens Advocacy Center and similar agencies and work closely with South Florida State College for a number of things. Education is a big part of what makes the Sonni Famlly Foundation work. The purpose of this scholarship is to help a student complete college and earn a bachelors degree by establishing a safety net for those who might otherwise fall through the cracks in our present system said Sonni. Four years ago, we started this and they currently have six students that are still receiving scholarship funds. This years recipients from Avon Park, Juan Patino and Tamara Stokes are two of only six applicants to apply for the scholarship at the high school. Of the nearly 30 applicants graduating from Sebring High School, the Sonni Family Foundation chose only Jessica Sturgill. Lake Placids recipient Jessie Sanders was one of 20 applicants from the high school. Each of the students will receive a total of $16,000 each spread out over four years to complete their educations. Each semester the money will be glven to either the student or the institution they are attending in monthIy Installments. Patino, Stokes, Sturgill and Sanders must all maintain a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 in order to keep their scholarships. Recipients must attend an in-state community /state college or a public university and should take enough credit courses to qualify as a full time student. Whereas there no required courses to be under taken by the recipients, we do want them to get a college degree at the end of four years in order to qualify for the scholarship. The Foundation, which was established over a decade ago has made contlnulng to support the community as their top priority. Both my children are Sebring High School graduates. Theyve gone on to complete their higher studies as Doctor and Banker and both are very successful. They whole heartedly subscribe to the notion that we have to continue to support the community where they came from and where they got a great education from. This is something that we will always continue to do as a family as long as we have the resources said Sonni.

B4 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, May 30, 2014 www.newssun.com HEALTh H Y L LIVING Dear Pharmacist: Ive been fainting (or almost fainting) several times a year for the last six y ears and no one has been able to gure out why. Ive done every scan on my brain and arteries, and everything is nor mal. I take two blood pr essur e medications, something for depression and thyroid. What can y ou say to someone pr one to fainting? -B.W., Silver SpringsAnswer: Normal? Its not normal to pass out. After passing out, a person requires little more than just lying at (supine) until consciousness is regained. S melling salts can help you come to a little faster and you can buy those online. The real danger is hitting your head on the way down! Your physicians should keep asking the ques tion Why? The sudden loss of consciousness from fainting is scary and occurs fr om diminished blood ow to the brain. Im relieved your scans are OK, but that leaves you in a quan dary as to how to manage another episode. I ll help y ou think this through. Most fainting is triggered by damage to the v agus ner ve, which connects your brain to your digestive system. When you eat, this ner v e sends blood to your stomach and intestines and pulls it fr om y our brain. If it yanks too much, you could pass out. Same thing can hap pen if you reduce blood pr essur e too quickly, if you bear down for bowel movements, or if you vomit or have chronic diar rhea. S o eat slo wly, and nurture your digestive tract by eating w ell, taking pr obiotics and avoiding food tr iggers Check your blood pressure rou tinely, your medication dose may be too high, or the combination of your two drugs could be triggering this. The vagus nerve is a touchy little nerve that could be infected. I tru ly believe most people carry pathogens in their body that attack the vagus nerve, and you don t even know it. Images dont show these bugs on MRIs, MRAs, CT or CTA scans. Denitely avoid de hydration. Too little water in y our bloodstr eam lowers your blood pr essur e (plus you take medicine), and this stimulates the vagus nerve causing dizziness and fainting. Living in hot climates can make this worse. So can anxiety, like the sight of blood or shock ing news. Drinking alcohol or taking certain dr ugs even prescription drugs, can cause blood v essel r elaxation and dehydration which cause fainting. Diuretics like HCTZ, furosemide or natural diuretics can make the lights go out in y our br ain! Other medications that make you more prone to fainting include nitrates for angina, stimulants for attention-decit, heart dr ugs and all the blood pressure medications. A condition called carotid sinus hyper sensitivity occurs in elderly men and the slightest r ubbing to a certain area of the neck can make you drop. Doctors dont usually look for this. Heart dis ease, anemia and hy pothyroidism are other common causes for fainting. M or e on that at my new website, www. TheThyroidSummit. com. Bottom line is to keep exploring why the blood drains from your brain so quickly and dont resign yourself to living with this.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

O ne of the most evident differ ence is seen in the pr iest and priesthood. A Biblical and historical under standing of this matter is essential in understanding the gospel of Chr ist and the blood purchased church of Christ and the blessings therein. The patr iar chs (Noah, Abraham, Job, Isaac, Jacob, etc.) per formed priestly acts in their capacity as fathers of the family or heads of clans F rom the beginning, priesthood with its acts of worship was thus r ecognized as a Divinely instituted ofce. But in pre-Mosaic times there was no special class of pr iest recognized. Priestly succession in a single family was established by the authority of G od thr ough Moses in Exodus 28:1-3. From this time onward the priesthood (pr iest and high pr iest) of Israel was conned to the family of Aaron. All of these served as a shadow of the real that was to come: There fore, if perfection were thr ough the Levitical priesthood (for under it the people received the law), what further need was there that another priest should rise according to the order of Melchizedek, and not be called ac cording to the order of Aar on? F or when the priesthood is changed, of necessity there takes place a change of law also (Hebrews 7:11,12). The Hebrew letter, an inspired treatise ex pounding the superiority of the gospel of Chr ist in a point to point comparison to the law, clearly por trays Jesus as the High P r iest. (2:17; 3:1; 6:20; 8:1) This position of Jesus, Messiah, Christ is shar ed with no man: Seeing then that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession, for we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympa thize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as w e are, yet without sin (Hebrews 4:14,15). This profound truth is repeated in 1 Timothy 2:5,6: For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Him self as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time. The doctrines and councils of men have introduced the concept that Mary, the mother of J esus and saints are intercessors also. This is supposed to be supported b y J ames 5:16: Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effectiv e prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. The claim is that Mary was sinless (no such Biblical doctrine) and therefore her prayers are more powerful. Righteous does not mean sinless as proved by the context and the example of Elijah in verses 17,18 where he is described as a man with a nature like ours! Praying to statutes of Mary or any per son has their origin in man and not R ev elation! Pauls sermon in A thens (A cts 17:23-31) carries the same message and warning as J eho vahs law to Israel, You shall have no others gods befor e M e (Exodus 20:3). Let us hear the conclusion of the matter: For it was tting for us to hav e such a high priest, holy, innocent, undeled, separated from sinners and exalted abo v e the heavens; who does not need daily, like those high priests, to offer up sacrices, rst for His own sins and then for the sins of the peo ple, because this He did once for all when H e offered up Himself (Hebrews 7:26,27). The one and only Advocate is clearly identied: My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous; and He Himself is the propiti ation for our sins; and not for our sins only but also for those of the whole world (1 John 2:1,2).

SNAPs S HOTs S CHURCH SERVICESThere was once a preachers family who was very poor (hard to believe, huh?). The wife came home from shopping one day with a dress that was very expensive. In fact, it was simply more expensive than they could afford. In an effort to justi fy her purchase, the wife told her husband that the temptation to have the dress was more than she could bear, so she bought it. The preacher re sponded to his wifes claim of o v erwhelming temptation by asking, Did you tell Satan to get behind you? As a matter of fact I did, replied the wife, and he said the dress looked marvel ous from the back, as w ell. Many times, I wish that I could wave some sort of magic wand and do away with all of the temptations in my life. I kno w without a doubt, that I want to do what is right, but I do not always make the right decisions. However, when I choose the wr ong path, it is not because I cannot help it. R ather it is because I give in to the temptation, instead of nding the way out that G od pr omises to provide me. 1 C or inthians 10:13 reads, No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endur e it. In other words, no temptation can over take us, unless we allow it to happen. God always pr o vides a way to escape sin and Satan. The next time y ou hear someone say, The devil made me do it, realize that you are listening to an excuse given by a per son who has made a bad choice but r efuses to take responsibility for his actions. When it comes right down to it, choosing to live the right way or the wrong way is just that a choice. And, it is our choice to make. So, which path will you choose? Make it the path to Heaven.Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring P arkw ay, Sebring, FL 33870.

(AP) The nations largest Protestant denomination saw membership decline for the seventh str aight y ear in 2013, according to an annual report released W ednesday The report by the Southern Baptist Conventions publishing ar m, Lifeway Chr istian Resources, puts total membership in the N ashville-based SBC at 15.7 million. Thats down from 15.9 million in 2012, a decrease of a little less than 1 per cent. W eekly church attendance decreased mor e than 2 per cent last year, falling to 5.8 million as a weekly average for the year. The r epor t also notes a 1.5 percent de crease in the number of baptisms falling to 310,368. Baptisms are an important measure for the denomination because of its strong commitment to evan gelism. The conv ention has been concerned about the membership and baptism trends for several years. After 2012 saw a drop in baptisms of 5.5 per cent, a task force was conv ened to study why. The group of pastors released their report earlier this month and recommendations included praying for a spiritual awakening in our chur ches and our nation. Lifeway P r esident and CEO Thom S. Rainer said in a news release about the 2013 declines, I am grieved we are clearly losing our evangelistic effec tiveness. D avid W. Key Sr., director of Baptist studies at Emory Universitys Candler School of Theology said the declines ar e not surprising. They mirror an o v erall decline in Prot estant church membership .Less Southern Baptist members for 7th year ..............................................................................................................................

May 31st.Its a Lakefront Paradise!Jen BrownGRI & Waterfront Specialist JenBrown@email.com www.LakeIstokpoga.com With the knowledge and experience you need.863-655-5554 Family FeaturesWhen considering a home renovation, think outside the box for design inspiration and setting the overall tone. With homeowners staying in their homes longer due to the econo my, renovations should focus on usability and personal style. For those homeowners looking to sell, the market is still very much a buy ers space, so quality additions that increase value are certainly top of mind. Luckily, theres no need knock down walls or move plumbing to make an impact simply start with small, quality updates to pack a dra matic punch for less money. Here are some ways to add quality and comfort within the different spaces of your home:EntrywayAs the rst thing visitors see, y our front door should always provide a good impression, reecting the beauty that emanates throughout your home. With doors, matching the exterior and interior creates a ow into outdoor living spaces. Using doors as a part of the over all aesthetic can also allow for some creativity with glass accents or bold color choices. Choose a reliable door manufacturer, such as Ma sonite, that offers a wide breadth of nishes and styles using wood, steel and berglass. Living roomAdd decorative touches to your living room with repurposed items found around the house. Fill a dec orative pitcher or an old tin watering can with fresh owers from the garden to add elegance to your coffee table. Wrap assorted globe lighting xtures or mason jars with wire and hang them in a grouping to display votive candles. For an eclectic and shabby chic feel, turn a vintage drawer on end to use as a bookshelf or bring in an old wooden crate to use as a side table. KitchenRefreshing your kitchen doesnt require a major update. Add a new color to existing cabinetry by ren ishing or addinga new coat of paint. Would you like to add a glossy shine to the kitchen? Simply apply meshback glass tile to t the dimensions of cabinet door panels. Finish the update with a modern touch by re placing outdated hardware with the many new, stylish options available.BathroomFrom tiles and countertops to faucets and showerheads, the options are endless for bathroom updates. With wall-hung, stand-alone or pedestal styles, your choices for a new vanity are no exception. During a renovation, some homeowners begin their project by focusing on other bathroom elements like those mentioned above. But starting with the addition of a new vanity, like one of the many beautiful options from Ronbow, will set the stage for your bathroom and provide a focal point for the other design elements. Rooms throughoutFrom the master bedroom to the hall entryway, hardwood oors provide the ultimate in beauty and ambiance. Renishing gives your existing tired, worn out oors an instant upgrade that shines from room to room. By focusing on a few quality up dates, you can add beauty and comfort to your home to be enjoyed for many years or add value in a competitive housing market. Add quality and comfort with room-to-room home additions

Many couples w ho downsize their homes do so after raising a family. A home might be lled with memories, but downsizing a home helps couples save more money, and that nancial exibility often allows men and women to more fully enjoy their retirement. But in spite of the nancial impact of downsizing a home, theres more than just money at stake for homeowners thinking of downsizing their homes. The following are a handful of factors homeowners should consider before downsizing to a smaller home. FurnitureWhen downsizing to a smaller home, many couples realize their current furniture is unlikely to t into a smaller home. That means couples w ill have to sell or donate their current furniture and then buy all new items for their new home. If its been a while since you purchased new furniture, you might be in for some sticker shock on your rst visit to the furniture store. Another thing to consider regarding your furniture is which items y ou simply cant live without. An antique dinner table might have been the centerpiece for your family holidays over the last several decades, but theres no guarantee it will t into y our smaller home. You may want to pass this down to your son or daughter, but thats only possible if he or she has the room for it. Before deciding to downsize, consider your attachment to certain items that you may or may not be able to take with you to your new home and the emotional toll that selling such items might take if youre left with no other options.Real estate marketThe real estate market can be a sellers friend or foe. Many sellers have a sale price in mind when they decide to sell their home, but the real estate market can be ckle, so homeowners should do their research before putting their home up for sale. Will the current market make it easier for you to get the most for your home, or will you have to settle for less than you prefer? How fast are similar homes in your area selling? When studying the real estate market, its also a good idea to study the market for smaller homes. If you plan on moving into a condominium but the market is not ush with properties, you might end up paying more than you want to for your new home, which might negate the savings you are hoping for. Proximity to familyWhen downsizing to a smaller home, many couples move out of the suburbs and into cities or towns with more ready access to culture and restaurants. While that accessibility is great, grandparents may nd that it comes at the cost of less time with their grandchildren. Thats a steep price to pay for doting grandparents, and it may also impact your children if they frequently rely on grandma and grandpa for babysitting. Before downsizing, consider if youre willing to move further away from your family. If not, you likely can still nd a smaller home in close proximity to your current home and any nearby family members.Medical careMany older men and women must also consider the effect that moving may have on their medical care. Downsizing to a home in the country may make it harder to maintain contact with your current physician, and rural areas typically have less medical practitioners than more densely populated towns and cities. In addition, if you have been visiting the same physician for years, you may not want to move and have to start all over again with a physician who is unfamiliar with your medical history. Consider how much maintaining your existing relationship with your physician means to you, and if your next home will provide the kind of access to medical care youre likely to need. Downsizing a home is not just about moving into a smaller property. To ensure youre making the right decision, many factors must be considered before making that move.

Trees are often beautiful elements of a natural landscape, adding aesthetic appeal to a property or even an entire community. But there are times when a tree must be removed, an action that, in many instances, requires the services of a professional tree service. A tree with roots invading the foundation of a home or infringing on a patio or walkway can become a safety hazard. Other trees may cast shade where a pool is planned or cause disagreements between neighbors when the tree straddles a property line. These are instances when tree removal w ill be necessary, and a reputable service can advise as to the best methods for ridding the property of the troublesome tree. Homeowners will need to do a bit of planning and research to remove trees safely and securely. It is best to contact a variety of different tree removal services and compare their offerings and prices. The cost of a tree removal will vary depending on various factors, including the height of the tree, its width, the number of branches it has, its location on a property and the proximity of that location to potential hazards like power lines. Tree removal may range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand. When a tree is being removed, most of the branches will be removed to make the tree more manageable. Trees are rarely chopped at the base and allowed to fall, as there simply isnt enough room to safely take this approach. Sections of the tree will be cut, roped off and slowly lowered. A climber will scale the tree or use a cherry picker machine to reach the top of the tree to facilitate the process. The pieces of the tree will be loaded into a wood-chipper for grinding before they are hauled away. Larger, heavier portions of the stumps may need to be moved later on with machinery. Hauling trees off the property may cost extra, so it is important that homeowners read their contract thoroughly before signing on the dotted line. Additional costs may be factored into the bill. These can include stump-and-root grinding. Trees will be cut down to the stump. To prevent eyesores or tripping hazards, some homeowners opt to have the stumps ground down into sawdust. This will not remove all of the roots but will take care of most of the above-ground portion of the remaining stump. It is usually up to the homeowner to discard the sawdust or use it as a mulching material. Expect the ground around the former tree to be soft, and there may be a depression depending on how much stump grinding took place. Some people prefer to wait a season for the ground to recover before planting something new. It may take a while for grass to sprout where a tree was once located, and there may be bare spots when grass starts to grow in. Tree removal can be an expensive venture but is necessary for different reasons. Be sure that tree-removal services are fully insured before signing a contract.What to expect when getting a tree removedMetroInstallation of a pool may require the removal of trees. Larger trees are best removed by a professional.

In fact, many can prove bene cial to gardens.BatsBats have a bad reputation, as people unnecessarily fear bats because they believe them to be carriers of disease. But many bats feed off of insects or fruits and will not harm a human. The average brown bat can eat 1,000 mosquitoes in an hour, so its easy to see why bats are good to have around. FrogsFrogs and toads will prey on insects and make the local insect population more manageable. Toads eat mainly slugs, who feed on the leaves and fruits of many plants. Frogs and toads are attracted to water, so including a pond or another water feature in the garden will provide them with a habitat they like.BirdsWhile it is true that some birds can damage crops, many birds are content to feed on insects attracted to the garden, which helps to keep insect numbers in check. Chickadees, for example, will dine on aphid eggs, while larger birds may prey on mice or other rodents or simply scare them out of the garden. Jays and mockingbirds are known to be feisty and can even deter dogs and cats from a yard. Hummingbirds will sip on the nectar of owers and help pollinate plants.SnakesSnakes in a garden can be disconcerting to some people, but snakes are ideal predators who feed on insects and rodents several times their size. Snakes are the right size and shape to invade the burrows of pest animals.Butterflies and beesButter ies and bees are responsible for pollinating the vast majority of plants. Avoid using pesticides that may diminish butter y or bee populations. A beehive right next to a garden may not be practical, but dont make attempts to destroy it. Consult with a professional beekeeper to see what can be done to move the beehive without destroying it.These animals may help your garden

BY MEGHAN BARR Associated PressNEW YORK A slower-than-usual hurricane season is expected this year because of an expected El Nino, federal forecasters said Thurs day, but they warned that it takes only one storm to wreak havoc and urged Americans to be prepared. The El Nino, which warms part of the Pacic every few years and changes rain and temperature pat terns around the world, will likely reduce the number and intensity of tropical storms and hurricanes, the National Oceanic and Atmospher ic Administration said in New York City. Cooler temperatures on the sur face of the Atlantic Ocean compared w ith recent years will also lower the probability of hurricane formation. El Nino helps to reduce the abili ty of storm systems coming off Africa to strengthen into tropical storms and hurricanes, said Dr. Gerry Bell, NOAAs top hurricane season fore caster. Bell cautioned that El Nino has not yet developed and ofcials have not yet issued any forecasts for it. Ofcials expect about eight to 13 named tropical storms and three to six hurricanes. One or two ma jor hurricanes with winds over 110 miles per hour are forecast. The six-month storm season be gins June 1. Forecasters got it wrong last year when they predicted an unusually busy hurricane season. There were 13 named storms and two hurri canes, Umberto and Ingrid, both of which were Category 1, the lowest on the scale that measures hurri canes by wind speed. There were no major hurricanes. In 2012, storm surge was devastat ing to the New York area when Superstorm Sandy slammed the East coast, killing 147 people and causing $50 billion in damage. Sandy lost hurricane status when it made landfall in New Jersey. A new mapping tool this year will keep coastal residents updated on the storm surge threat, using tides and currents to predict how high the surge might be and where exact ly it will hit, said Dr. Holly Bamford, director of NOAAs National Ocean Service. Storm surge can be deadly, Bamford said. It only takes six inch es of fast-moving water to knock an adult over. The map will be activated when a hurricane or tropical storm watch is announced, or about 48 hours before the onset of tropical storm force winds, and updated along with National Weather Service advi sories every six hours. New York City ofcials also launched Know Your Zone, a hur ricane awareness campaign that is being billed as a one-stop-shop for hurricane preparedness. New York ers can go onto the citys website (http://nyc.gov/knowyourzone ) to nd out which evacuation zone they reside in and other critical storm-re lated information. The effects of Sandy make it clear why you must be prepared, said Jo seph Bruno, the citys commissioner of the ofce of emergency management. The Atlantic hurricane season goes through cycles of high and low activity about every 25 to 40 years based on large scale climatic pat terns. Since 1995, an average season has 15 named tropical storms, eight hurricanes and about four major storms. The last time a major hurri cane made landfall in the U.S. was when Wilma came ashore in 2005, an eight-year stretch that is the lon gest on record. During the six-month season, forecasters name tropical storms when top winds reach 39 mph; hur ricanes have maximum winds of at least 74 mph.Forecasters predict slow Atlantic hurricane season ... but theyve been wrong beforeEl Nino helps to reduce the ability of storm systems coming off Africa to strengthen into tropical storms and hurricanes.Dr. Gary Bell NOAAs top hurricane forecaster

Hurricanes produce storm surges, tornadoes and often the most deadly of all inland ooding. In the last 30 years, in land ooding has been responsible for more than half the deaths associated w ith tropical cyclones in the United States, said Ed Rap paport, National Hurricane Center. While storm surge is al w ays a potential threat, more people have died from inland ooding in the last 30 years. Intense rainfall is not di rectly related to the wind speed of tropical cyclones. In fact, some of the greatest rainfall amounts occur from weaker storms that drift slowly or stall over an area. Inland ooding can be a major threat to communi ties hundreds of miles from the coast as intense rain falls from these huge tropical air masses. The United States has a signicant hurricane prob lem. More than 60 percent of our nations population live in coastal states from Maine to Texas, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Hurricane Floyd (1999) brought intense rains and record ooding to the east ern U.S. Of the 56 people who perished, 50 drowned due to inland ooding. Tropical Storm Alber to (1994) drifted over the southeast United States and produced torrential rainfall. More than 21 inches of rain fell at Americus, Ga. Thir ty-three people drowned. Damages exceeded $750 million. Tropical Storm Claudette (1979) brought 45 inches of rain to an area near Alvin, Texas, contributing to more than $600 million in dam ages. Hurricane Agnes (1972) produced oods in the northeast United States which contributed to 122 deaths and $6.4 billion in damages. So, the next time you hear hurricane think inland ooding.What can you do? When you hear hurricane, think inland ooding. Determine whether you live in a potential ood zone. If advised to evacuate, do so immediately. Keep abreast of road con ditions through the news media. Move to a safe area be fore access is cut off by ood water. Do not attempt to cross owing water. As little as six inches of water may cause you to lose control of your vehicle...two feet of water will carry most cars away. Develop a ood emer gency action plan with your community.
