French trading conglomerate Louis Dreyfus Commodities has forecast that Florida would produce 96.6 million boxes of oranges during the upBY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING Its been better than two years in the making, involving dozens of interested citizens, animal activists and county staff, but a new statute regulating dogs, cats and ferrets now is in place. Highlands County Animal Control Director Darryl Scott said the new measure actually has taken even longer. This is the rst signi cant ordinance since the leash law and running at large law of 1965, he said. They have made some modi cations and tweaked some things over the years, but this really is the rst comprehensive law in about 50 years. The issue came to light in April of 2012 when animal lovers approached the Highlands County commission over what they charged were health and BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING County commissioners didnt need much explanation Tuesday to approve this years assessment for West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department. Residents, however, were confused by their notices. Commissioner Don Elwell said he got a lot of phone calls. Many people thought they would be paying an additional assessment on top of the one they had. Commissioner Jack Richie said he had residents confused that they would face a new tax. That wasnt the case, however. West Sebring Fire Chief Scott Mann said people in Sun N Lake, in fact, would be paying less: $25 per home versus $32. When notices went out to approximately 32,000 households, 5,000-6,000 of those people were new customers from Sun N Lake Special Improvement District and another 100 were new customers in Fairmount Mobile Estates, said Bea Johnson, non-ad valorem assessment coordinator. For those people, the assessments would change, but for all others, it would stay the same as last year: $25 per house $15 per mobile home $5 per lot BY LARRY GRIFFIN STAFF WRITER SEBRING The girls of the Hansen House just got a much more colorful living space. In an attempt to make the safe house for victims of abuse and neglect more visually pleasing, a local artist was commissioned to paint the walls with a mural. That artist was Tori Roman. Based out of Sebring, Roman is a freelancer who teaches classes at the Highlands Art League, sells her own art sometimes and does illustrations for anyone who needs one. The illustration the girls of Hansen House chose was a serene indigo night sky with a light blue bird silhouette rising above the clouds to the moon. They wanted something very retro looking, Roman said. So I got this idea from what they were saying. They wanted their favorite colors in it, so I used certain colors. And then some of the girls helped out with it, Mural at Hansen House to make residents more comfortable Local artist Tori Roman works on a mural for the girls living at the Hansen House. Roman said she hopes the mural will encourage the girls to express themselves artistically.Early citrus crop predictions bleak County OKs West Sebring Fire assessmentCitizens complain about confusion, unclear budget SEE MURAL | A6SEE FIRE | A3SEE CITRUS | A3Some call for worst crop in 50 years, but Ray Royce says local harvest likely isnt that badNew ordinance gives county Animal Control some bite The new animal control ordinance makes it illegal to interfere with Animal Control o cers like Aubra McAnally.

The notices also said WSVFD would allocate the funds to pr o vide re protection, but didn t say exactly how the protection would be pr o vided. My brother was a fallen hero for 9/11. I have nothing but respect for reghters, G ambino said. (But) you need to put forth what you plan to have in a budget. Gambino called a phrase stating the district would use the funds for other pur poses as deemed appropriate an open door for y ou to do what you want without a public review. County Attorney Ross Macbeth said the assessment letters spell out what the re dis trict plans to do with the money in gener al. He dened re protection as providing personnel, equipment, tr aining, hydrants, vehicles and facilities and making sur e all ar e ready for a re. Sometimes, he said, re districts have to build a station or pur chase a re truck, and that s often done with borrowed funds, paid back through the assessment. T im E ures, emergency operations director, said he didn t know exactly how much is in the W est Sebring account every year after the estimated $580,000 annual r evenue is put to use. The county has 10 re districts, Eures said, and if any district has money left over at the end of the year, it stays in that districts account. He said West Sebring hasnt had any debt since it was formed in 2002, so it should have funds in the account. After hearing from other residents who thought, at rst, they would face a new as sessment on top of their old one commissioners asked staff to examine ways of making notices a little more clear Thats whats wrong with government, Commissioner Jim Brooks said. We have a hard time explaining ourselves sometimes. FIRE FROM PAGE A A 1 Scott Dressel/News-Sun/A West Sebring Volunteer Fire Departments annual assessment was approved by the county commission on Tuesday.coming harvest. Private forecaster Elizabeth Steger, another closely watched independent forecaster, has estimated the cr op at just 89 million boxes. Both forecasts are below the U.S. Department of Agricultures nal 2013-14 estimate of 104.4 million bo xes If correct, either predicted amount would be the lo w est production since 1965-66, when Floridas output was 95.9 million boxes. Last years harvest already was the lowest in nearly thr ee decades Highlands County Citrus Growers Association Executive Director R ay R oyce has seen the reports, but is not ready to give up quite yet. What is it Mark Twain said? The reports of my demise hav e been gr eatly exaggerated, he said. I don t think its going to get that low. I just dont think its going to drop another 15 percent. At this point, from talking with member growers and looking at area trees, Royce said the crop does not ap pear to be as bad as the initial for ecasts at least in Highlands County. Its certainly not going to be a huge crop but I believ e that this year will be at levels comparable to last y ear , he said. Citrus greening again was identied as the culprit. Greenis caused by a bacteria which is spread from tree to tree by a tiny insect called the Asian citrus psyllid. Once infected, the trees leaves turn yellow and fall. The trees fruit then fails to mature, falling to the ground before the tree slow ly dies. R o yce said the drop rate of fruit was one of the determining factors in both private for ecasts He believes it may not be as bad as they fear. There is some optimism that it wont be as bad this y ear as it was last year, he said. This season we have had a more uniform bloom and more tradition al weather in the early season. M oreover, although there is no cure for greening, Royce said growers are nding bet ter ways to relieve stress on the tr ees and better manage the debilitating effects of the disease. Its about how we feed and water the trees to lessen the drop and other negative effects of the disease, he said. Last years weath er also resulted in signicantly smaller fruit than in years past. Royce said this years weather could result in more traditional sizes for oranges, grapefruit and specialty fruit. Last year, we had a very long bloom and the fruit was set over an extended period of time. This year, the fruit appears to have set within a couple of weeks, he said. Its siz ing up nicely and uniformly and weve had good r ain her e, but let me say that its early yet. At least at this point it appears that for the most part trees look stronger and healthi er here. O n the other hand, Royce said while things appear a bit better here and in the southwest portion of the state, re ports from Floridas east coast w er e not as encouraging. In all, some groves are doing better than others, some management regimens are wor king better than others, he said. All I can tell you is that the guys that I really respect in this business ar e planting new tr ees. Upon release of the Steger and Dreyfus independent reports, pr ices of concentr ated orange juice futures jumped a r epor ted 2.5 percent to $1.47 per pound. Those increas es reportedly come at a par ticularly bad time as demand for OJ reportedly is trailing off in light of additional options for consumers.

A t the time decreasing revenues were cited as the main r eason for problems there. When you cut the budget, you have to cut services, Scott said at the time. Critical issues were identied as licensing, the need for stronger nes, requiring vac cinations, hold times, computer updates and coor dination with citizens groups, among others This new est measure has four major components. I t star ts with a state statute, which mandates that all dogs, cats or ferr ets that ar e four months or older must be vaccinated by, or under the direction of, a licensed veterinarian. Under provisions of the or dinance the initial vaccination must be a 12-month dose followed the next year by a 12-month inoculation. After a pet has r eceived its second 12-month shot, a v eter inarian can use a thr ee-y ear shot if they so choose, Scott said. But owners have to keep their paperwork for the three-year shot in case there is a prob lem. The feeding of fer al cats also is part of the measure. This was a complaint-driven problem, said Scott. H e said ther e have been areas around the county where people had been establishing cat colonies, by feed ing the ownerless felines behind shopping centers and on v acant properties. The food source causes the cats to congregate and the population to grow rapidly. Ther e were some places where people were putting out 2530 feed dishes a day, he said. Land owners then complained about the mess that was left behind. Additionally, other property owners called Animal Control ofc es about cats walking on and spraying their v ehicles and other ar eas to mark their pr oper ty. One guy had a cat spray the windows of his house and its a pretty rough smell, Scott said. Under provisions of the new ordinance, people can feed cats on their own property but must have permission to feed them on land they do not own. That will cut down on some of the prob lem areas, like behind shopping centers he said. The humane treatment of animals is also included in the new statute meaning that owners have to provide adequate food, water and shelter for their pets This also was a complaint-driven part of the ordinance, Scott said. Much of that problem came from pets being obser v ed tied up outside without food, water or a place to get out of the blazing sun. After we notify an owner of the violation, we can come back and issue a warning, and if there are repeated calls, we can even is sue a citation, he said. A rst offense can cost a pet o wner $50 with nes ranging as high as $500. Other provisions would bring offenders before a county magistrate for disposition of a situa tion. Basically, it now puts some teeth into the or dnance, he said. In extreme cases, animals may be impounded. There was a r ecent case wher e staff members had to impound a dog that apparently had been neglected for some time and whose chain had become so kinked the animal could barely move. We had to take that one to the vet, Scott said. The ordinance now also protects the Ani mal Control ofcers, pr ev enting people from striking or inter fering with staff, giving them false infor mation, stealing traps or damaging Animal C ontrol property or, as Scott put it, anything that impedes the investigation of a case. W e have had people get up in our faces, spit on us and thr eaten us with bodily harm, Scott said. Generally in those cases, Scott said High lands County sheriffs deputies ar e called to the scene. There also have been instances where individuals have tried to hide pets giv e false names and even lie about instances involving bite or other incidents I n some cases, peo ple have removed or v andaliz ed traps, and even taken captured animals and attempted to carry them off. W e have had cases where people have gone to the back of Animal Control ofcers tr ucks open up their cages and try to release the animals, he said. W e had one lady grab a cat in a cat car rier off the tailgate of a tr uck and r un down the street screaming Youre not killing this cat! Youre not killing this cat! The bottom line, said Scott, is the new laws outline owners rights and responsibilities for the care of their pets such as dogs, cats and ferrets. We really want to start by educating the public. Our goal is not to go out and write a bunch of citations, but if we have to we can do that now, he said. Also people now have to have a micro chip (or) county tag for their animals and they hav e to show that they have had the vaccinations to get their tags. The tags or chips also will help r euniting owners with pets that have gone astray. If they have a chip or a tag, we can get pets back to their own ers I cannot tell you ho w many animals w e get in that have no collar and tag. We dont hav e a clue as to who owns them.

Ports around the state, in cluding Port Manatee and Port Tampa, have embarked on their own expansions to accommodate the larg er ships that pass through the canal to a nd from the U.S. The U.S Army Corps of Engineers estimates container volume at Gulf Coast ports could more than double by 2029. Floridas 15 deep-water ports plan to spend $2.6 billion over ve years deepening their channels, adding cranes, dockside rail and other infrastructure to better position them selves to capture the cargo trafc and the good-paying jobs that trade gen erates, according to Florida Trend magazine. The r ace to lure shipping from West Coast ports is not without risk, both for the port authorities making multimillion-dollar investments and state economic dev elopment ofcials steer ing billions of dollars in infrastructure investment. The COE study noted that a manufacturing shift from China to India and Southeast Asia would make shipping containers through the Suez Canal to U.S. east coast ports more economical, at the expense of south ern U.S. ports. Another wild card is climate change The Corps study stated, recent climate models indicate the Northwest Passage (thr ough the Arctic Ocean) could be ice-free for up to nine months by the year 2030. Ships from China could traverse the passage to reach Northeast U.S. ports without having to pay costly canal toll fees. Florida has some advantages, though. The state is soon expected to become the third most populous in the country and its location makes it costly to transport goods here by land. Direct shipping to Tampa or Man atee could be an attractive alternative. Another incentive for shippers is the ability to reload with F lorida agri cultural exports and avoid empty return trips. A report by Shipping Watch magazine estimated shipping empty containers back to Asia costs industr y leader Maersk Line more than $1 bil lion a year. Florida Agriculture Secre tary Adam Putnam traveled to Pana ma earlier this year to see the progress on the canal expansion and to pitch expor ts. It remains to be seen how grow ing import trafc will affect commu nities away from ports, such as Polk County Demand for distribution centers, warehouses, cheap land and intermodel facilities will almost certainly rise, especially along Interstate 75 and I-4. Asian demand could impact which cr ops Florida farmers plant. One hundred years ago, the Panama Canal transformed global shipping. It is about to do it again and Florida has a front-row seat.An editorial from the Polk County Democrat. Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.com RR esponse to HH al G ravesI was glad to see a response Hal, hope it got your blood owing! You are entitled to your opinion of me but when y ou include r eferences to radical, anarchist writings while criticizing B ar ack Obama (BO) (or maybe you were equating them to me not sure) you are using the same rhetoric popularized by Faux and other well-known Obama haters. Since the modern era of The Presidency, most if not all presi dents have used their time in ofce to expand executive power thr ough the use of executiv e authority, executive action and executive discretion at the expense of The C ongress. Many, if not all, have been challenged and they sometimes lost when the Supreme Court of the United States declar ed that action as unconstitutional. When it happens that does not mean a pr esident has broken the law, violated his oath of ofce or deserves to be impeached, but with BO that is all w e hear fr om the same people (and you) who consider him to be an illegitimate president, subscribe to birtherism and still believ e he is a M uslim. At this time we have a very successful conspiracy originally put for war d by the Senate minority leader the same day BO was inaugur ated to block, not for ce compromise, anything the President puts forward. B ecause things need to get done this President, who tried in the beginning to reach out and work with Congress as Reagan did, was forced to go it alone using executive action, authority and discr etionar y power. He has done this far fewer times than the last 10 men who occupied the ofce and that is a fact you cannot dispute; please check the records.ROY T. ALLENSebringProud of RR ubi os stanceI would like to thank Senator Marco Rubio for standing up to crime by cosponsoring the Pre vent All Soring Tactics (PAST) A ct (S. 1406/H.R. 1518), an anti-cr ime bill that will stop an abusiv e horse tr aining practice known as soring. I am proud that he supports stopping this cruel practice and it is time for Senator Bill Nelson and Representative (Tom) Rooney to take a stand against this criminal animal tor ture as well. H orses ar e sored to exaggerate a natural high stepping gait. Unfortunately, they are often conned to their stalls for extended periods of time, with legs swathed in caustic chemical and wr apped in plastic to cook the chemicals deeply into their skin. It is common to see horses lying down in their stalls, consumed with pain. This cruelty is done for one reason only for people who turn a blind eye to this brutality masquerading as entertainment. The Florida Veterinary Medical Association, the American Vet erinary Medical Association, the Association of P r osecuting Attorneys and the National Sher iffs Association endorse this bill, as do o v er 350 members of Congress. Senator Nelson and Representative Rooney need to follow the lead of v eter inary professionals, law enforcement, and senator Rubio by cosponsoring this anti-cr ime bill.G aA IL LL E aA VI ttTT SebringA state, a plan, PanamaJust as World War I didnt prove to be the war to end all wars, the 20th century didnt turn out to be when the nearly unimag inable brutality and indescr ibable evil represented by German dictator Adolf Hitlers N azi r egime was denitively laid to rest. The evil is back. Big-time. This time its in the form of the militant Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), which is bat tling to take over Syria and Iraq and has alr eady blurr ed the two countries boundaries. Its leav ing trails of bodies and horrors in its path. I f it w ere a movie, you could title early 21st century The Evil Strikes Back. The images of this Sunni group that even Al Qaeda reportedly found too brutal are coming fast and furious and sickening ly. Only this isnt Hollywood, but a nightmar ish r eality faced by those in Syria or Iraq whose lives cross with a group seeking to take over the Middle East and some believe beyond by imposing an ultra-conservative caliphate. I t s a case of the bloody ends justifying the warped, theological means. According to The Daily Mail, a 21-page letter found at O sama bin Laden s compound after his killing urged the cutting of all ties with ISIS because its ultr a-br utality could damage Al Qaedas reputation. And Al Qaeda didnt exactly enjoy the reputation of a group that played Patty Cake with indels. P opulations that cr oss paths with Caliph Abu Bakr al-Baghdadis self-declared Islamic State must conv er t to Islam and pay tribute or else. The Internet brims with grim examples of orelses: photos and videos, many hyped via social media by ISIS to create fear and recruit. Among other things, they show mass execution shootings of Iraqi security forces, graphic be headings, and rows of victims heads on sticks O ne shows ghters walking bound prisoners over to the water s edge, making them kneel, then shooting them in the back of the head and pushing them quickly into the water. Its uninching assembly-line-massmurder that would make Hitler proud. According to Reuters, an Iraqi government ofcial recently re ported that ISIS has killed 500 Yazidis, including women and chil dren who were buried alive. ISIS is also systematically destr o ying Iraqs cultural and religious artifacts. Ill never forget how stunned my late father Richard Gandelman was in the w eeks following 9/11. He and other members of The Greatest Generation thought the kind of evil H itler repre sented was eradicated when America won the war S hortly after 9/11, I sat with him and other family members at Carmines Tuscan Grill in New Haven and when 9/11 came up he seemed doubly anguished. I sensed he had felt that his grand kids wouldnt have to grow up in this kind of world and no w it was clear that The Evil had not vanished but merely resur faced elsewhere under a differ ent name. Y ou get the feeling that the extent of ISIS threat including in the long-term to Americas national security isnt fully gr asped b y policy makers or the American public. A militarized Islamic State made secure and permanent by dismembering Syria and Iraq is a far worse danger to the world order than Russias annexation of Crimea, wrote The Moder ate Voices Foreign Columnist B r ij Khindaria. It will alter power equations in the entire region str etching fr om Lebanon to India and West China. It could inspire creation of similar Islamic S tates in Lib ya and Afghanistan, which are teetering on the edge of chaos. He warns: It will also trigger a erce rivalry between IS and the remnants of al-Qaeda..... Both may undertake spectacular acts of terrorism against Americans and Europeans to seek leader ship of Muslim extremists ght ing against the Wests decadent inuence and moderate M uslims in the Arab world. Can Americans take this seriously enough? Khindaria and others point out that P r esident Barack Obama still seems to view ISIS as a regional problem. Are we too mired in our seles, and 24/7 partisan and ideological polemical wars? Can we nally get dead serious? Because, fr om all indications ISIS is d-ea-d serious, as the people who were crucied, beheaded, shot or buried alive by them could contest.

DOMER OBITUARIES BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING A month after adopting the Avon Park Air Force Ranges military airport zones into its land regulation, Highlands County commissioners have appr o ved $500,000 from the conservation trust fund to purchase land around the range. The money, along with funds from several other cooperating or ganizations would go toward securing a $3 million 2015 Department of Defense R eadiness and E nvironmental Protection Integr ation Grant, said Hilary Swain of the countys Natural Resources Advisory Commission. F unds will be dr awn out of the countys conservation trust fund as needed to pur chase easements, she said. NRAC is delighted to be able to get conser vation land and support the military mission, Swain said. A par tnership be tween the military, county, The Nature Conservancy and other conservancy groups would keep land undeveloped natural habitat near the Air Force r ange so it wont inter fere with range operations. Charles B uck MacLaughlin, range director of operations, said MAZ 1 is the most cr it ical area that needs to be dealt with regar d to development and use. The public needs to know if they are in proximity to a military mission, at least in MAZ 3 (a r elativ ely low-impact area). We still owe citizens notication that they are in that ar ea, MacLaughlin said. Lands pur chased with the grant would prevent development in what is called the Military Airport Zone 1, or MAZ 1, creating a buffer around the Air Force range. Swain said funds partners have committed so far provide a 3-to-1 match of county funds to nal grant funds, but the match could go as high as 12 to 1. S wain said Highlands County landowners in MAZ 1 have agreed to be part of the program. They are willing sell ers, she said, but prices havent been discussed yet. C ommissioner Don Elwell wanted to know how much land is being considered and what affect that would hav e on county tax rolls. Swain said 23,210 acres are in discussion out of the approximate 300,000 acres total that lie within MAZ 1. Raymond McIntyre, county property appraiser, said a conser vation easement drops the taxable v alue b y half, depending on how the property is assessed. Pasture valued at $200 per acr e would be assessed at a $100 per acre value, he said. Meanwhile, under Flor ida law, the landowner could still maintain an agr icultural operation on that property. Elwell calculated at the meeting that the proposed purchases, taxed at $7 per every $1,000 in taxable value, would remove only $2,200 in tax r ev enue from the county. McIntyre concurred. Commissioner Jim Brooks, liaison to NRAC, said his family sold 425 acres to The N atur e Conservancy, which was then sold to the state of Florida to be managed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The county gets nothing out of that acreage, Brooks said. A conservation easement is a good way for the county to get some thing out of the easement. B r ooks is not sure, though, if all 300,000 acres in MAZ 1 would qualify for conservation easements. The impor tant thing in my mind is the encroachment area, C ommissioner J ack Richie said. Im concerned about that, because (we) cannot have what happens to most airpor ts.$500K earmarked for conservation land around Avon Park bombing range BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER LAKE PLACID Police have made an ar rest in a strong arm r obber y from April where the victim was struck with a handgun and knocked to the ground.

MURAL FROM PAGE A A 1 BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER AVON PARK An argument between two women last week has led to charges of lewd and lascivious behavior by a 57-y ear -old man on an 11-year-old girl. Willie Jerome Crum ity, 57, of 1101 South C ar olina Ave. in Avon Park, is being held in the Highlands County Jail without bond. Arrest reports state that a Highlands County Sheriffs dep uty was at the victims home on Aug. 12 when the victim s grandmother accused the victims mother of trying to get Crumity in trouble because y ou know he has a problem with kids. All of the family members names are being withheld from this report to protect the identity of the vic tim. The deputy inquir ed and learned Crumity had allegedly enticed the girl to have sex and touch him, according to reports. R epor ts said that the mother had sent the daughter to Cru mitys home at noon A ug. 12 to ask if they could wash clothes in his washing machine. The mother said she usually would go with the victim, reports said. Crumitys residence is two streets from their home, reports said, and the vic tim was gone longer than it would have taken to simply get per mission and return home. When the mother arrived at Crumitys home, she allegedly heard him telling the victim to touch him and pull their pants down, reports said. So the mother knocked on the door, reports said. When Crumity answered the door, he appeared aroused, reports said, so the mother took the daughter home. On the walk back, the mother asked the daughter what had happened. Alleged ly, when the girl asked about doing the laundry at his house, Crumity went to get change for them to do laundr y at their own home, reports said, but returned not wearing any clothing on the lower half of his body and asked the girl to touch him and pull her pants down. She refused, reports said, so he pulled her clothing down, ex posing her. At that moment, the mother had knocked on the door accor ding to what the girl told her mother. In a later interview, the girl told deputies that she had pulled her clothes back up, but Crumity had told her to bend over the bed before hearing a knock on the door. After deputies were called, Crumity al legedly went to the mother s home and asked why she was trying to send him back to prison.Man charged with lewd conduct on 11-year-old CRUMITY q .49The Least ExpensiveFuneral I Ionic in Polk( 0UntV is Otlcrin" the"Mile meal services inHi'ihlands County 'I oo!'Full Service BurialIncludes: All ticr\ ices,Casket c, VaultPay our RespectsNIot "our Life SavingsCrematory on premises.Phone 24 Hours Duily(863) 669-1617Rww.easketstore.net3090 Fast I?dgcwood I)r.I.akeland.

Id be worried if they had come in and just blew by us in three straight, Lady Devil head coach Shane Wir ries said. But we had big leads in the rst two games and won the third big. That was certain ly the case as after ear ly back-and-forth exchanges in the rst two games A von Park rode runs to stretch out to big leads. Down 10-9 in the opener, the Devils went on a 9-4 run to go up 18-14. Lake Placid tied it at 19, but Avon Park scored the next ve to sit on the brink of win ning at 24-19. B ut it was the D ragons who heated up at just the r ight time scoring the last seven points of the set to take a stunning 26-24 win. That late-game lull didnt carry over for the Devils into the second game as they took the early lead at 5-3 and then ballooned it to as much as 15-6. But a pair of scoring runs brought Lake Plac id back to within 15-14, then ahead 22-19, before pushing through for a 25-21 win. This time the momentum seemed to hav e shifted in the Dragons favor, as they took a 9-4 lead in trying to make it a three-set sweep.

A8 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, August 22, 2014 www.newssun.com shery biologists have believed for years; when it comes to bass waters, farm ponds are the likeliest bodies of water to hold them. Its there, in a small body of water, often less than an acre that the largemouth bass has the greatest oppor tunity to feed and grow, undisturbed by most shermen. Farm ponds are generally regarded as big bass factor ies; in fact if you research internet sites like TrophyCatch youll be surprised how many of the 10+ pound bass reported each year come from small, undisclosed lakes and ponds. Most of these small bodies of water are lo cated on private land, golf courses or or ange groves, providing a much needed water supply for liv estock or irrigation. Large bodies of water like Lake Okeechobee and Lake Isokpoga play host to thousands of shermen each year, particularly in the late fall and winter months. These shermen catch and release hun dreds of bass, often shing ev er y nook and cranny of the lake. Is it possible that a world or state record bass exists in these lakes? Again, ask the biolo gists. M ost will tell y ou its pretty unlikely. Big bass in most tournaments are in the 10-pound range, and only occasionally do you hear about an 11or 12-pounder being weighed in. Even though both lakes offer acres and acres of un-accessi ble, weed-choked water that a bass may choose to inhabit, most will be disco vered and caught at some point in their lives and will never know the peaceful tranquility of a small far m pond wher e they might occasionally have to put up with a couple of co ws sloshing ar ound in the shallows. I t s fair to say that even the big national tournaments, which come our way fr om time to time, with the best shermen in the world competing, seldom do they catch bass o v er 12 pounds in the larger lakes. But everybodys heard about the young kid bluegill shing that hooks into a real mon ster in his favorite shing hole. F ar m ponds are highly regarded as lunker factor ies for the simple reason noone shes them. The reason is often the fact that they are on private land. But when we talk about small bodies of water, Im not just talking about farm ponds. I n H ighlands County we have over 100 named lakes and probably another 50 with names noone has ever heard of. Only about 40to 50-percent of these lakes offer boat launch ing sites, which places the other 40to 60-per cent in the same category as farm ponds. Like the small bodies of water on private land, without boat r amps the bass in these lakes enjoy similar benets; little to no shing. I liv e in G olf Hammock and behind my house is a small body of water named Lake Clara. When we bought the house a few years ago, I assumed the lake was excavated and used for land ll 20+ years ago when many of the homes were built. I further assumed that over the years it had lled in and was likely not much deeper than 6-8 feet. Taking a portable depth nder on my Jon boat out on Lake Clara I was surprised to nd water depths over 20. Plenty of water to hold a state record sh. And although I havent shed the lake very much, I have caught a couple of bass over 10 pounds right off my dock. But bass dont need a lot of space or depth to grow big. What they need is food. And in many farm ponds, due to the runoff of fertilizers and in the case of farms and cattle ranches, cow ma nure, these waters are often extr emely fer tile. As a result, small sh proliferate, providing an over-abundance of quality food for a hungry bass. S o if y oure after a real wall-hanger, try shing some of the smaller bodies of water in Highlands County. You might just be the rst angler on the wa ter in years.Don Norton is a profession BASS FROM PAGE A A 7 Inaugural Summer Series 2014 AA ge GG roup RR esults PP lace Name/ RR ace AA ge Time F emale

A10 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, August 22, 2014 www.newssun.com the players to get into game shape, which is so much different than practice shape. Game experience allows a young team to play together and build cohesiv eness. Though many coaches will emphasize how y oung they ar e, Jack son rarely alluded to the age of his play ers though he would have good cause. As of Monday, he has only seven seniors and ve juniors on the var sity roster, and not all of those ar e star ters. Instead, it is the sophomore class that dominates the Red Devil roster and includes their starting quar terback, A darius Council. We like his leader ship, said Jackson. He kno ws the offense the best and right now he is best suited because of what he has shown in 7-on-7 drills and the last couple weeks of practice. Jackson says that Council is a heady player and he knows the game of football. As a coaching staff, Jackson stated that they looked at the things Council can do best and that is what they are going to try and run. If you dont have a drop-back passer, then you are not going to drop back and throw 30-40 times a game, Jackson said. Jackson named War ren Buckner as the backup quarterback. The thing about Warren is that he can play anywhere on the eld. That is going to give us a big advantage both offensively and defensively. In the running back position, senior J.C. Cobb will be splitting time with sophomores Jaques Gordon and Claudy Antoine. I feel condent with any of those three in there, Jackson said. I am very excited to see what they do during the year. At the receiver and tight end positions, se nior Josh Jones will be surr ounded b y several sophomores in Moise Satine, Deonta Kerney, Buckner and Ahmaad Smith. I am real excit ed about these guys, J ackson said. They can all catch the ball. Kody Littles is moving out and has excellent hands, so I am r eal condent that w e can do the things we want to do with this offense. The offensiv e line may be of most concern at this time with only one star ter r eturning from last years roster, that being Bryan J ohnson. Thats the thing I focus on the most, said J ackson, but I feel condent in the other kids: Zach Landress, P aul D evlin, Dalton Brock, Lincoln Esmie and Tyler Scully. These guys have a good rotation, (weve) just got to get them some game exper ience and get some things under their belt. Jackson also noted that they would have to look at the offense and see what they do best. What they do best is what we are going to do, but I am condent that the more they play, the better they will get. The Red Devils plan to run a 4-4 defense, meaning four linemen and four linebackers. Jackson believes this to be the strength of the team. We have some young kids, but many played towards the end of last season, he said. John Dor returns at defensive tackle, Bri an Johnson returns at defensiv e tackle Zach Landress has shown a lot at defensive end for us. Our biggest problem is going to be depth at those positions. W e have a good starting 11, but I am looking for Wyatt Page and Jeremy Ethridge to step up and do something their senior year. J ackson is r eally excited about his linebacker corps. W ith four star ting sophomores Antoine and Gordon in the middle and B uckner and S mith on the outside they anticipate great things from them. Also they hav e thr ee solid back up players to add depth at this position. A v on Park is also solid in the defensive backeld at the cor ner and safety positions, with senior Josh Jones, Braswell, Cobb, Council and Littles splitting time in those positions We have a strong defense, emphasized Jackson. Not strong in numbers, but we can put a solid 11 out there. Jackson said his team may be young, but they are very coachable kids. That they are go ing to make mistakes, but they ar e able to take constructive criticism and they can take coaching if they do something wr ong. The thing I like most is that they go 100 mph no matter what, said Jackson. If youve got that, you can teach them the game of foot ball. They kno w my expectations and they kno w the coaches expectations and they w e will not accept any thing less than what w e pr each ev ery day and they are buying into that. According to Jackson, Tenoroc is running a double tight wing and a wishbone, so they will probably not throw the ball that much. But it is one of those offense that is difcult to replicate in prac tice, said Jackson. So w e will hav e to play assignment football. That is what w e pr each, play your gap, play your assignment and do your job so that will be a big test for us right from the beginning. The game against Tenoroc is scheduled to start at 7 / p .m. to night at Joe Franza Stadium. James Taylor/News-SunDeonta Kerney follows the block of Adarius Council during practice on Monday. Council has been named the starting quarterback for the Red Devils. AP FROM PAGE A A 7ing to a new offensive system this season, which will seek to create more balance and giv es Watson an added learning curve. Jair has been very consistent in learning the new offense, Scott said. We were heavy on the run last year, and gained a lot of yards on the ground early. But later on, teams were loading up in the box, so we want to get more balance and really make use of the weapons we have. Size and experi ence on the line is not among those early season w eapons, how ever. This is one of the smaller offensive and defensive lines weve had, Scott said. But with our workouts, they will be tough as nails, aggressive and stout. And that will play into us making use of our speed. Were a fast team and were going to use that to our advantage. That speed carries over to the defense, where Scott sees his defensive backs as the teams strength. Were very strong there, but we have some holes were ll ing at linebacker and on the defensive line , he said. But our biggest goal is to play our hear ts out and let the chips fall where they may. And with their district competition, they will need to br ing their best to the table. We know what were getting with Winter Haven and Lake G ibson they re big, well-coached and are physical, Scott said. And Lake Region is improving each year and they beat Frost proof in their spring game Tonights Kick Off Classic against Mulberry should be a good test for what awaits the S treaks. They are a good physical challenge for us right out of the gate, Scott said. They are a big team that well have to use our speed against. The challenges dont end there as the Streaks get the regu lar season started with home dates against J upiter Christian and Okeechobee before heading to Hardee for what is always an entertaining, competitive contest. W e just have to eliminate mistakes and not beat our selves, Scott said. We just need to play har d and pay attention to detail. If we do that, with our ability, then well come out on top most of the time. STREAKS FROM PAGE A A 7 Dan Hoehne/News-SunJair Watson has taken to the new oense well, which will look to mix in more passing to make it a more balanced approach.14-10 lead and continuing to break it open to keep the match aliv e with a 25-16 win. Avon Park continued to battle in the fourth, bouncing back from an early decit to take a 7-4 lead behind a kill from Otaysha Smith and a block from Imani Tate. But the Dragons, buoyed by kills from Jacalyn Baldwin and Raveen Gobourne, re claimed the lead at 8-7 and would nev er tr ail again. After Lake Placid built up the margin to as much as 20-11, Avon Park would make one nal run to get it to 2216. But their night would soon end as the Lady Dragons nished off the 25-17 win. We obviously saw where we need to tight en things up, and thats what these games ar e for, Wirries said. But we also saw that we have hitters and when theyre on, we can beat anybody. For Lake Placids part, the tough competition right out of the gate showed a lot. You could tell there was some nervousness, especially in our new comers, senior Shannon Huber said. But they play ed thr ough it and when we fell behind, we fought harder and thats what you want in a team. That sentiment was echoed by coach Char lotte Bauder. I saw some r eally great things as far as them playing as a team and not giving up , the second-year head coach said. We have some things to work on, but thats a given with any team at this time of the season. In Tuesdays nightcap, it was a bit of a differ ent story, on the competitive side of things, as scheduled foe F r ostproof dropped out and last-minute r eplacement M oore Haven lled in. The T erriers, a Class 3A team coming off a down season, was not quite on the Lady Streaks level, which made for some inconsistency despite a thr ee-set win b y scores of 25-11, 25-15 and 2522. In a match like that, you look for how the team communicates, works together and stays on top of things, head coach Venessa Sinness said. And the girls were good with those aspects. But I did see that our serve receive needs some work. The Preseason Clas sic concluded Thursday night with A v on Park facing Moore Haven in the consolation match, while the Streaks and Dragons locked horns for the championship. See Sundays NewsSun for a recap of those contests.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, August 22, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: My sons wife passed away very recently. He works days, so I have been helping him by looking after his 15-year-old daughter, Leyla. Leyla recently told her father that her boyfriend, Dylan, has asked her to vandalize things -TV, Blu-ray player, etc. -if her daddy enrolls her in a private school or moves her to another school closer to his company for a better education. Leylas grades arent good, and she spends most of her time chatting or texting with Dylan. Abby, Im really worried. The last thing Dylan asked her to do was kill her daddy because he controls her too much. Before school ended, Dylan skipped a field trip. He didnt want Leyla to participate either because he feared that without him, she might have a chance to make friends with others, so she didnt turn in her paperwork and stayed home. We plan to send her to a psychologist in the coming weeks. Should we bring this problem to the attention of her school principal? Thank you for your help. WORRIED SICK IN CALIFORNIA DEAR WORRIED SICK: Im glad your granddaughter will soon see a therapist. Im sure theyll have a lot to talk about. Because Leyla is in constant communication with Dylan, take her cellphone away and monitor her activity on the computer. That he would ask her to damage property or cause physical harm to another person is something that should be immediately reported not only to the school principal, but also to his parents and the police. This young man could be dangerous to the adults in your family, as well as to your granddaughter unless there is an intervention NOW.

Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby. com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Solution on B5PUZZLE CORNER Tis clearly the season for exceedingly attractive young adults in mortal peril. Just two months ago, we had the charming Shailene Woodley as a teen cancer patient, ghting for time while learning about life and love in The Fault in Our Stars. Last week, we had Aussie heartthrob Brenton Thwaites in The Giver, risking his life for the sake of truth and memory. And now we have the sweet Chloe Grace Moretz in If I Stay, spending the movie in a state of limbo between life and death, after a catastrophic accident shatters her comfy world. Like all successful YA novels brought to screen, If I Stay, based on the 2009 teen tearjerker by Gayle Forman, brings with it a ready-made audience. All the lmmakers need do is cast the most appealing couple they can nd and stay faithful to the story, and the kids should be happy. Its safe to say director R.J. Cutler has done that Moretz is beautiful to look at, and as her rocker boyfriend, Jamie Blackley is satisfyingly sensitive and hunky. And they have good lips. This is one screen couple that knows how to kiss. If only the dialogue worked as well. Shauna Cross script lapses into syrupy platitudes far too often. Just as a scene is building, you may suddenly feel like youve walked into a life-size Hallmark card. Moretz plays Mia, a beautiful young cellist whose locker at high school is lined with I Love Yo Yo Ma stickers. Mias a classical music nerd. This is tough to believe, rst of all because her parents are totally cool former rocker types, and even more because Moretz, with those deep eyes and perfect, pillowy lips, just doesnt look one iota like a nerd. Nice try, though and if she can make the cello seem cool to the younger generation, all the better. One day at school, gorgeous Adam, a soft bang falling over his left eye just so, spies her playing the cello from a distance, and falls for her on the spot, even though he hangs with the cool crowd. He even buys tickets to the symphony for their rst date. (Note to youngsters: This does not happen in any high school weve ever seen not even on Glee.) Mia falls for Adam just as fast. You know how you meet someone and they just already are the person theyre meant to be? she asks dreamily, in voiceover. We see this happy meeting in ashback, because Mia is looking back at life from the precipice. That horric accident has left her trying to decide, in the words of the Clash song, Should I stay or should I go? (The fact that the song isnt used seems a wasted opportunity.) Its hardly a spoiler to say much of the lm takes place in a hospital, and the combination of pretty girl, hospital corridors and voiceovers recalls nothing so much as an extra-long episode of Greys Anatomy (Meredith Grey even had an episode where she, too, crossed over into that middle ground between life and death.) Theres no question that youll cry at some point during this lm. Beautiful young people on the brink of death will do that. But the lm could have done much better with a dry-eyed editor for that dialogue. Even an actress as genuine as Mireille Enos, who plays Mias mother in the lms best performance, has you wincing a bit when she says, empathetically, What can I say, baby? True loves a bitch. Stacy Keach also provides touching support as Mias grandfather, admirably keeping a tricky bedside speech restrained and moving. But the lm lives or dies (sorry) on the strength of its young lovers. And especially Moretz. Though she crinkles her nose a little too often and a little too consciously, shes enticing enough to make you hope that she, well, stays. If I Stay, a Warner Bros. release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for thematic elements and some sexual material. Running time: 106 minutes.

No, snapped his wife, you havent, but youve been listening in a most aggravating manner, and Im not going to stand for it! As a preacher of the gospel of Christ, I share with others the good news of Jesus through sermons, one-on-one Bible studies, newspapers and television. It is most rewarding when those who hear the word of God choose to believe and obey it. However, I also face the problem of those who will not listen to the word of God, and I must admit that that aspect of my work is often frustrating and even discouraging. I ask myself the question, Why wont they listen to God? Jesus encountered these same kinds of people in His day. He often told parables to teach lessons that the people might nd difcult or be unwilling to learn. One of these stories deals with the differ ent ways that people choose to hear and accept the word of God. Matthew 13:3-9 reads, And He spoke many things to them in par ables, saying, Behold, the sower went out to sow; and as he sowed, some seeds fell beside the road, and the birds came and ate them up. Others fell on the rocky places, where they did not have much soil; and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil. But when the sun had risen, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. Others fell among the thorns, and the thorns came up and choked them out. And others fell on the good soil and yielded a crop, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty. He who has ears, let him hear. The parables that Jesus told often had a clear meaning that needed no explanation. However, Jesus decided to explain this one to His hearers more fully. In Matthew 13:18-23 He continued, Hear then the parable of the sower. When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is the one on whom seed was sown beside the road. The one on whom seed was sown on the rocky places, this is the man who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy; yet he has no rm root in himself, but is only temporary, and when afiction or persecution arises because of the word, immediately he falls away. And the one on whom seed was sown among the thorns, this is the man who hears the word, and the worry of the world and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. And the one on whom seed was sown on the good soil, this is the man who hears the word and understands it; who indeed bears fruit and brings forth, some a hundredfold, some sixty, and some thirty. In this parable, there were four types of soil. Out of the four, only one allowed the seed to grow and produce a crop. There are four types of hearers today, but only one is acceptable to God. To be that good hearer, one must listen to the word of God and grow strong in its understanding. Only then can one yield a spiritual harvest that will be pleasing to God. Of the four soils, which one are you? NOTE: Hearing Gods word is absolutely necessary for eternal salvation. However, hearing by itself is not enough. Next week, we will examine more of what God requires of each individual in order to be a child of God and saved in the end. The role of hearing in salvation Kevin PattersonKEVINS KOMMENTS Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 33870.

SEBRING Faith Lutheran Church, 2740 Lakeview Drive, will screen Virtuous today and follow it up with a Virtuous Womens Conference on Saturday. Virtuous is a modern day version of Proverbs 31. Its the story of a hardworking single mother, a loyal wife, a driven career woman, and many more. Virtuous is a multi-plot lm focusing on empowering women to live righteously while remaining unapologetic in their beliefs. Virtuous also introduces the Potters House for Women to an audience that has yet to hear of the amazing, redemptive, and transformational stories happening through this ministry every day. The impact of Potters House will continue to grow exponentially through increased funding and expansion. As todays generation of women are vastly diverse, so are the various stories in this lm. The lm depicts the lives of 10 unique ladies from different ages, backgrounds and life experiences. These conferences are designed to make the lm come to life as audiences personally hear from the actresses. The Virtuous Womens Conferences are designed to use this highly acclaimed lm as the story guide for a conference lled with testimonies, teaching and astonishing music. Among the actresses and speakers will be Private First-Class Jessica Lynch. She is a former United States Army soldier who, at age 19, became the rst ever rescued female POW/ MIA. Brandy Allison is a top 10 Contemporary Christian recording artist who plays the lead role of Simone Burner in Virtuous. She also sings the Virtuous theme song, Walkin On Faith. Holly Spears is an uprising Christian actress and artist, known throughout Nashville as an amazing worship vocalist and musician and owner of Girl on a Mission Music. Angelita Nelson has a humor that will keep the ladies chuckling throughout the day. She is best known for her lead role as Carmen Martinez in the hit lm Courageous.

S NAPSHOTS CHUR C H SERVICES LAKE PLACID Denver Bierman, lead singer and trumpet player for the Mile High Orchestra, will perform in concert at First Presbyterian Church of Lake Placid at 7 p.m. Saturday. Biermans Mile High Orchestra was the inhouse band for the 2005 Gospel Music Awards and has performed at the Praise Gathering with Bill Gaither, the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, at conferences with Beth Moore and Gary Chapman, and numerous national and worldwide broadcasts including Charles Stanleys In Touch Ministries, the Crystal Cathedrals The Hour of Power, and Lester Sumeralls New Harvest Show. Bierman has also toured with Jaci Velasquez, singing on her Christmas tour in 2001. Bierman has enjoyed playing the trumpet from the minute he rst picked up the instrument in sixth grade. He wrote and recorded his rst song, Just Believe, in a woodshed outside his hometown of Plymouth, Ind., his senior year of high school. The song was entered into a statewide contest, winning a spot among the top 10 original songs by high school students in the state in 1995. From there, he earned a schol arship to study trumpet at Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn., joining the Christian music industry upon his graduation. The only problem that Bierman ran into was that it seemed to be hard to nd many bands in need of horn players. This issue inspired him to start his own band, one that would have room for a number of brass players. The result was the birth of the Mile High Orchestra, a high ener gy, modern-day horn band playing a variety of music styles including swing, jazz, pop, latin, and rockabilly. The group has toured since 1999, appearing in the nale of FOXTVs The Next Great American Band and garnering praise and a devoted fan base from Greece to Hollywood, having played the Summer Olympics in Athens and the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City. Bierman will present a solo concert at First Presbyterian Church of Lake Placid at 7 p.m. Saturday. The church is at 117 N. Oak Ave. between Dal Hall and Interlake boulevards in Lake Placid. There is no charge for the concert, but a love offering will be collected for the artist and his travel expenses.

The proposed project consists of approximately 325,000 CY of lake excavation within SLID de-silting existing canals and waterways, the development of a stormwater treatment area in the northeastern section of SLID and the purchase of additional lands for water quality treatment. Construction also includes the replacement of six weir and control structures along the northern SLID boundary, the installation or upsizing of approximately 670 LF of culverts ranging from 36-inch to 48-inch in size and the modi cation or rehabilitation of two control structures and the stormwater pumping station located on the east portion of SLID. The alternatives considered to the proposal include: the construction of drainage collection systems and water quality structures for each of the developments within SLID. This alternative would still require the de-silting and waterway expansion needed to convey stormwater to the pumping station. The construction of this alternative would result in costs four times higher than the proposed design. As required by the National Environmental Policy Act, the Rural Utilities Service has assessed the potential environmental effects of the proposed project and has determined that the proposal will not have a signi cant effect on the human environment and for which an Environment Impact Statement will not be prepared. The basis of this determination is that there will be no adverse impact to farmland, wetland or oodplain. In order to avoid or minimize any adverse environmental impacts, the District will comply with all State and Federal environmental regulations. Measures will be taken to minimize dust, odors, noise, erosion and disruption of traf c during construction. The Districts work effort will be restricted by the requirements speci ed in the Environmental Resource Permit as issued by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for this project. Copies of the Environmental Assessment can be viewed or obtained at 420 S State Road 7, Suite 166, Royal Palm Beach, Florida, 33414, telephone 561-792-2727.
