Over 60 percent of those 339 were domestic violence cases. While the sheer number of domestic violence cases in Highlands County is rife with minor familial scuf es, many cases are serious, involving families trapped in cycles of abuse where the abuser can keep coming back again and again. One of the main reasons for this, according to Victims Advocate Terry Leaphart, is that many families nd themselves in dire nancial straits once an abusive member of that family is jailed or otherwise removed. When the victim has had a bellyful of (the abuse), and they nally call the police, they have no way of making a break for it afterward, Leaphart said.

Were extremely happy with it. The new $7.2 million P-25 digital 800 MHz system was years in the making. It took the engineers quite a while to do the topographic study to determine the tower sites and things like that, Fane said.

The ev ent star ted Friday in heavy rains. By Saturday morning the rains had subsided, and residents and guests alike w er e outside in the brisk air, admir ing shiny classic cars G uests came fr om all over the state of Florida. For $25 they were able to stay all weekend long and enjoy a host of differ ent events including a car judging show and an oppor tunity to drive a classic car around the Sebring International Raceway. Liv e music fr om the California Toe Jam Band also made an appearance. Even without the numerous events, guests were simply en joying the ability to come out and hav e a good time with their cars. Pine Island resident Jane Wason, who ar rived with her husband Bob and their 1957 Chevr olet B el Air, said she liked the community aspect of the event. We like meeting people, Wason said. We like sharing our car with people. Some people will see it and itll remind them of their honeymoon car it could be any thing. The W asons attend numerous car shows per year and said they enjoy driving their Chevrolet Bel Air on back roads. Pat Higgins attended the show with a 1972 O ldsmobile say ing that attending car sho ws was r elaxing to him. It makes you feel young again, Higgins said. Plus, its better than hanging out in bars. Some people, such as Sebring resident Richard Pipher, found the car show not only entertaining, but ben ecial. I found par ts for my car, Pipher said of his 1977 Porsche 911, grinning ear to ear. This is a restored car, but I was miss ing a few parts (for the bumper). This guy offer ed me the parts I need he s just going to give them to me.

Shelton, recently re tired from Food Lion at the time said he just walked in one day and found out that the store was for sale. He walked out that day the new owner of All Star Video. Since then, he has kept the DVD rental and retail store rolling. His secret to staying in business is getting new movies earlier than Redbox. Its the way the stu dios set it up, Shelton said. The big businesses cant get a new mo vie for 30 days after its release, but we dont fall in that category. Were able to get them a month before every one else. S helton said the intent behind the stor e under his management was to take things back to the way they were. Twenty-ve years ago, it was $1 to rent a movie, he said. We went back to the way it used to be. Shelton called Redbox the biggest thing he had to compete with to keep the store open. Even though the store has survived, Shelton said it had to compromise in some ways such as adding Boost Mobile phones to the stores inventory and selling them at the front of the store. While the main busi ness remained movies, the phones w er e necessary to keep sales up. I ts hard to get away from something youve been doing for so long, he said. But I dont want to just close up. Shelton said despite the new options avail able to rent and buy movies today, people still like coming into the store. People dont want to stand at a machine, he said. They like coming inside a real store. All-Star Video can be reached at 863-4530500. The address is 1581 U.S. 27 N. in Avon Park. at 863-385-6155, Ext. In the age of Redbox and Netflix, All-Star Video keeps up the fight Brian Shelton, owner of All Star Video in Avon Park, stands with a rack of movies at his store. Customers can rent them for prices as low as $1.of concrete and steel. However, those have long-since been solved. I have to tell you, the folks from Motorola really bent o v er backwards to fix all of that. I cannot say enough good things about them, Fane said. One of the biggest drivers to the change was the age of the old system. We literally were having to look on ebay for some of the parts we needed; it was that critical. We just got to the point where we realized we couldnt just BandAid it anymore, he said. During one criti cal situation, Fane said he actually had been using the r adio for some communications while talking on a cell phone for others Under the new system, Highlands now is linked with H ar dee, Polk and as far away as Or ange and Hillsborough counties. Y ou literally can be in contact with dispatch all the way up to Tampa or Or lando on a portable r adio , Fane said. The new system has been an easy switcho v er for the dispatch system. Communications Training Coor dinator Josh Cordero said that other than a small change in the displays, the new system is operated in much the same way as the old one. Every time we have had to work with other agen cies, like if Polk has to br ing in their helicopter we have interoperability master channels so w e can easily all work together, he said. O ther wise, local units stay on the same channels ev en if they have to go out of county. Fane said the new system should serve the needs of the county for at least the next decade. Al though some fire depar tments and Emergency Medical Service units still may be hear d on home scanners, the law enforcement channels now are totally encrypted. They also hav e a system that automatically locks out an unapproved receivers that might tr y and log into the system. In fact, if we lose a radio, we can just turn it off and it becomes unusable to whoev er has it, Fane said.

OBITUARIES MIAMI The state of Florida red 32 prison guards Friday as part of an investigation into the deaths of inmates at four state pr isons. The Miami Her ald reported Saturday that all of the r ed guards were accused of criminal wrongdoing or misconduct in connection with the inmate deaths which date from 2010 through April. Florida Department of Corrections S ecr etary Michael Crews said in a statement released Friday that his agency has a z ero-tolerance policy for abuse or corruption and that the r ings were part of that policy We continue to root out any and all bad actors who do not live up to our expectations, he said. The T eamsters Union, which repre sents the guards, said the guar ds w ere red without due process. The union said the guards were following protocols established by their bosses, who have not been held accountable. The pr ocedure they were following in Charlotte was w ell kno wn and condoned by the war den, Teamsters spokesman B ill C ur tis said. Essentially they promoted the people most r esponsible and liable for the incident and r ed everybody else down the chain. Inmate Randall Jor dan-Aparo, a 27, died at F r anklin Correctional in September 2010. R ecor ds unearthed by the newspaper show that a no w-r ed guard or dered Jordan-Aparo gassed as the inmate pleaded to be taken to the hospital for a blood disordered that had ared up. The inmate died later that night. D arr en Rainey, a mentally ill inmate at Dade Correctional, died in June 2012. After defecating in his cell and refusing to clean it up, Rain ey was locked in a closet-like sho w er by guard, the newspaper reported. After turning on a stream of hot water that R ainey could not contr ol, corr ections ofcers allegedly taunted the inmate as he begged to be let out. Guards left him in the hot chamber for nearly two hours before he collapsed and died. Inmate Rudolf Rowe died at Union Correctional in Au gust 2012. Five of the guar ds r ed on Friday were accused of using ex cessiv e force in his death. Inmate Matthew Walker died at the Charlotte Correctional Institution on April 11. E ighteen of the red guards are accused of using inappropriate force in his death.State DOC fires 32 prison guards for wrongdoing The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN dI i 0 fir.4r"..

The News-Sun believes this benets in dividual ofcers and the general pub lic. The camer as br ing police ofcers the peace of mind that they can prove their innocence if they are accused of mis treating the public, while the public has the peace of mind they can pr o ve mis treatment if it occurs. H ad the police ofcer in F erguson, Mo., been wearing a body camera the night Michael Brown was shot, the facts of the incident would have been clear from the beginning. In the event of a tragedy, such as an ofcers murder, the camera can answer crucial questions, leading to a quicker identication and capture of the killer. There is an expense in acquiring the cameras. There are grants to help offset costs and, yes, we understand that grant money ultimately comes from our tax dollars but the rst accusation of police misconduct that is resolved without the expense of a protracted in vestigation and lawsuit would easily pay back the cost of a whole tr uckload of $400 cameras. Police departments across the state and across the country are embracing the use of body cameras. The devices are small about the size of a standard deck of cards and not obtrusive, but can be easily seen by citizens interact ing with police. In H ighlands County, the Lake Placid Police Department has been using body camer as since A pril. Chief James Fansler touts the benets that include public condence and ofcer safe ty. The cameras can be paired to cell phones and used to look ar ound cor ners or mounted to a pole and used for r ooftop sear ches. We do have one reservation the is sue of when the cameras will be in use. Tur ning a camera on and off can lead to problems in the courtroom was an entire incident recorded, or only a por tion of one? W e feel law enfor cement ofcers and civilians are better protected when the cameras are on continuously. For exam ple, if an ofcer has the camera turned off and something unexpectedly goes wr ong, he or she may not have time, or the free hand, to turn the camera on. Sebring Police Chief Tom Dettman has said hes watching LPPDs experi ence with body cameras. Sheriff Susan Bentons staff has said body camer as have not stirred much discussion in that ofce The N ews-Sun believes body camer as will soon be considered an essential piece of police equipment. W e encour age the Sebring Police Department to explor e the possibility of adopting body cameras for its ofcers and we encour age the sheriffs ofce to at least open that conversation.Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.com In her column of Sept. 5, pharmacist Suzy Co hen makes grave accusations. She accuses the CDC of co v ering up the dangers of the MMR (measles, mumps & rubella) vaccine for over 10 y ears deceiving parents. Cohen believes that the MMR vaccine creates a risk of autism, particularly in African-American boys. In short, Suzy C ohen joins the antiv accine movement. Snopes.com consid ers this claim to be little more than a rumor often spr ead b y email. They base that conclusion partly on articles by medical doctors on the Science B ased Medicine website. Critics reject the claims that Cohen accepts partly because they are based on alleged quotes from research ers that cant be veried. The only item appr oaching r eal evidence: a study found that v e Afr ican American boys in Geor gia developed autism. This is a danger ously small sample if y oure going to dr aw sw eeping conclusions. This isnt the rst time Suzy Cohen has been controversial. In her 2010 book, Diabetes Without Drugs, Cohen claims that diabetes can be treated with diet and vi tamins. Medical doctors ar e uh, obsessed with managing sugar intake. One chapter is Milk and Bread, Cause for Dread. Cohen says that she is horried by the nasty things in milk. One sub heading: Got Milk? Might Get Diabe tes. While S uzy C ohen thinks that milk contributes to diabetes, reputable sources say other wise. Dairy Foods May H elp P revent Diabetes is an article on the webmd site. The medpagetoday site has a similar ar ticle, Whole-Fat Milk and Cheese M ay Lo wer Diabetes Risk. Suzy Cohen claims to be a functional medicine practitioner as well as a phar macist. What is functional medicine? According to the Institute for Functional Medicine, most physicians don t understand the or igin of disease and dont kno w ho w to treat complex disease or chronic disease. Most phy sicians are behind the times and don t know the value of therapeutic diets and detoxication. I fear that this is not only gobbledygook, but dangerous to patients. I dont know why papers are still carrying Suzy Cohens column.Dale Gillis lives in Sebring. Guest columns are the opin ion of the writer, not necessar ily those of the News-Sun staff.Disputing Cohens claims GUEST COLUMNDale Gillis First, a disclaimer: I normally dont pay a lot of attention to football. Yes, as I have stated in the past, I am a Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan. That is to say, I try to pay atten tion to how theyre doing and if they ar e having a nor mal year (read: bad) I proceed to ignore them until the next season when my hopes ar e once again r aised. Bucs fans go through a lot to like their team. I say all that to explain that up until a week and a half ago I had no clue as to who R ay Rice was Even now the man could pass me on the street and I would probably not recognize him. B ut like most ev eryone else who watches television, Ive seen what he is capable of. On Sept. 8, TMZ released a video allegedly taken from inside a hotel elev ator In the video, one can see Rice and his then ance Janay Palmer in a ght. Not just with wor ds at one point P almer lunges for Rice, who punches her in the face, knocking her out. This video has been played countless times on news shows. It is disturbing. Another video shows Rice dr agging the unconscious woman out of the elevator. This all happened back in February. It has become news now because of the video, and because NFL C ommissioner R oger Goodell acted like he didnt know what to do. Why do I say that about the commissioner? Initially, after Rice took a plea bar gain that kept him out of jail, Goodell decided to suspend him for a whole two games. A month later, after people criticized him for the decision, he decided to expand the suspension for rst-time domestic violence offenders to six games. Then the video of Rice punching Palmers lights out became public, and Goodell suspended Rice indenitely. Rices team also released him. G oodell claimed not to hav e seen the video prior to TMZ airing it, though some have raised doubts about that assertion. As I type this, Rices former ance now wife (they got married in M ar ch) is standing by her man. Rices union has led an appeal of the latest decision. And some fans are not shy about expressing their support for Rice. (By the way, my thanks to www. foxnews.com where I pulled the information about the case. They even had a timeline to r efer to). The r eaction to some fans is troubling. The summation of the attitude I m hear ing from a number of those supporting Rice goes something like this: he made a mistake, he deserves a second chance. A mistake? Okay, let me be clear on this. 2+2=5 is a mistake. My misspell ing a word in this column is a mistake. Trying to get me to eat Brussel sprouts instead of chocolate is a mistake P unching a woman in the face is not a mistake. What, his st accidently ran into her? He was wander ing around the elevator with his st up and it r andomly hit her? S ome things are not mistakes. Some things are plain wrong. Hitting a woman used to be one of those things that was considered a bad thing to do. Now? It seems that some people dont care as long as their team is winning. I do believe in redemption. I do believe people can change. But I dont believe in making something less than what it is. Dismissing what Rice did as a mistake is wrong in and of itself. Maybe if we took acts like those we saw in that infamous video seri ously and dealt with them accordingly they wouldnt be so common. A ccor ding to Fox News, an NFL running back was arrested Wednesday on aggr av ated assault charges that occurred at his home and involved a woman and an 18-month-old child. He was immediately dropped by his team and, according to the article the NFL will review the case under the leagues personal-conduct pol icy. G o team?Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

Its not uncommon for an abuser to get arrested and go to jail, and all of a sudden, the victim whos left in the household with may be a few kids has no lights or the r ent comes through and doesnt get paid. So then theyre down at the state attor neys ofce dropping the char ges canceling the injunction, so they can get the household back together and get the bills paid and go on with life such as it is. Leaphart said one solution to this prob lem the Victims of C r ime Program has come up with is a relocation assistance program, in which victims of domestic abuse ar e given a leg up nancially to help them relocate. In addition, pr ogr ams at the Highlands Family Safe H ouse offer education to prepare to move out of an abusive situation. Leaphart said he also tries to personally help victims when they come thr ough his ofce. I talk to people before the fact, he said. Not always, not enough, but I try to give them a little checklist of things they need to accomplish before they make it. If youre going to get out, you need to do some things ahead of time. You cant just gather your children, get in your car and leave. You have to gather doc uments, you have to hav e a way to sustain yourself, have a place to live those are all things that need to be anticipated. Sherrie Schwab with the Highlands Fami ly Safe House said they ar e tr ying to focus their attention on placing more accountability on the perpetrators of domestic violence. Things get out of control, Schwab said. If we dont keep the batterer accountable, they will keep doing it. We cant just put a Band-Aid over the situ ation. Schwab said one initiative the Safe House is explor ing is a new program where, when an abuse call comes through, a child protective team is contacted. The team then wor ks with the family to plan for their safety, with more requirements and restrictions on the perpetrator. Schwab expressed disdain for the current system, in which the victim is typically left to do classes on do mestic violence and is r esponsible for keeping the batter er out of the house In addition, the Safe House is working to le more restraining orders for children. The shelter always has people, and its al ways 50 percent children, Schwab said. Domestic violence is still happening, and its always affecting children. O n what the av er age person can do to combat domestic violence, Leaphart said the best way for people to help is to be ther e as emotional support for friends going through abusive relationships. In terms of complete strangers witnessing domestic violence situ ations, he advised calling the police. B y getting law enforcement to inter vene, you may prevent someone fr om getting hur t or even killed do wn the line Report it if you see it, he said. The Highlands Family Safe House is a refuge for domestic violence victims, oper ated by the Peace River Center Safe House.

The Panama City News H er ald reports that oyster harvesting from the bay could be closed because of problems with water supply and over shing. Angry seafood workers protested at a Friday night meeting, saying a closure will devastate the re gions economy. The workers want the entir e bay open to har vesting. The state implemented new conservation measure in August, closing some commer cial and r ecreational ar eas of the bay to harvesting.Oystermen fear closing of Apalachicola Bay BRENDAN FARRINGTON ASSOCIa A TED PRESS TALLAHASSEE Floridas unemploy ment rate was up slightly in A ugust and Gov. Rick Scott is try ing to make the best of the r epor t released Friday. The A ugust r ate of 6.3 percent is up slight ly from 6.2 percent in J uly and r emains above the national average of 6.1 percent. The states unemployment rate has been at all year, beginning at 6.2 per cent in January. H ighlands C ountys rate stayed at 8.6 per cent. Scott has made job cr eation the central theme of his re-election campaign and chose to point out that 23,000 pr ivate sector jobs were created in August, rather than focusing on the slight uptick in the unemplo yment rate. He called the r epor t great news. As we continue to create an opportunity economy and a business-friendly environment, we are seeing mor e jobs being cr eated throughout Flor ida communities, Scott said in the pr ess release. We will continue to work so that ev er y Floridian who wants a job can get one. Scott campaigned in 2010 with the slogan Lets get to work and the promise of creating 700,000 jobs over sev en y ears. When it was pointed out to him that his promise was 300,000 fewer jobs than the 1 million state economists projected Florida would gain as it emerged from the re cession no matter who was go v ernor, Scott said his promise was 700,000 jobs above the projection. The governors of ce said 643,100 private sector jobs have been cr eated since D ecember 2010, meaning Scott is a long way away fr om meeting his promise of 1.7 million jobs in seven years. Scotts slogan for the re-election campaign is Lets keep working. In August, 602,000 Floridians were unem ployed. Monroe County had the lowest unemployment rate at 3.9 percent, follo wed by Walton County at 4.0 percent and Okaloosa County at 4.9 percent.

CARE FROM PAGE A A 1 BY BARR YY FOSTER NEWS-S SUn N CORRESPOn N DEn N T SEBRING Building 60 at the Sebring Regional Air port had some very special guests o v er the past month. A 40,000-square-foot hangar there was not full of aircraft, but in stead became an er satz studio for a Spanish TV reality show. The sho w is par t of the popular Spanishlanguage version of Americas The Voice. Called Yo Soy El Ar tista or I Am the Ar tist the NBC/ Universal/Telemundo program is described as a search for the to tal artist. P r evious installments of the 13-week ser ies w ere lmed at Universal Studios in Orlando. The Sebring airport facility served as the nal phase of the program, The Hanger Bootcamp, where contestants were taken to a re mote location for the lming. The pr oducers were looking for a venue that is old and has some character. We have some of our buildings listed on LoopNet. Thats where they saw the pictures of Building 60 and gave us a call, said Sebring Regional Air port Executive Director Mike Willingham. The sur vivors of the rst four r ounds par ticipated in their nal auditions inside the hangar. Although the show will focus on the inter ior sets, producers also plan to do an opening sequence as a scenesetter. They will give the history of the Se bring airport as a W orld War II training facility and show the vintage hangar where the episode takes place. The show will have a history of both the airport and the han gar. It will be quite extensive, Willingham said. The makeo v er of the building was comprehensive, including the placement of a number of large, industrial-strength air conditioning units inside. They actually air conditioned that entire 40,000 square foot hangar Willingham said. Plus, due to the amount of electrical they planned to use, they also set up a Cat erpillar generator that supplied the po w er for all of their production equipment, cameras, lights and every thing. W illingham said he had received a behind-the-scenes tour befor e the contestants were on site, however, after they arrived at the airport the securi ty was tight. Y ou could not get in without credentials or without being invited, he said. This episode will air next month in the U.S. market via Telemundo and Latin America via T elemundo Inter national. E v en before the nal cuts, Willingham said he alr eady had received word that the airport had gotten rave reviews. They said it was absolutely perfect here, he said. Willingham held out hope that the lat est lming could open the doors to mor e such activity at the airport. You know, some of the scenes from the movie The Great Waldo Pepper were shot out here, so you never know, he said.Spanish TV show films episode at Sebring airportFRONT-END DD AMAG eE Phil Attinger/News-SunA grey Chevrolet Camaro with severe front-end damage sits crippled as a result of a wreck Friday morning at U.S. 27 and Hammock Road in Sebring.

Afterwards, I realized, this could have been bad, G uerra said. His wife, Dr. Summer Khan, with whom he shares an obstetrics/ gynecology practice, said she heard about it from news reporters in Alabama before her husband even had a chance to call her. Im sure David was surrounded by angels, Khan said. Guerra said he rst noticed problems at 4:30 / p .m. central time Tuesday. The weath er was beautiful with a few clouds belo w him as he cruised at 233 knots at 17,000 feet. His indicators showed a drop in man ifold pressure the pr essur e that keeps the propeller turning so he rechecked the throttle and locked it in place. That boosted power, but within two minutes the manifold pressure had dropped to the same as atmo spheric pressure, so he gur ed he had a leak in a turbocharger. He called air traf c control to say he would need to div er t to another airport, then both the manifold and oil pressure dropped. He declared an emer gency, reduced power to save the engine and set up to glide into a landing. H e was over Chilton County, north of Montgomery, Ala., so he found and circled the local airport. As he got lower, he saw kids playing baseball in a eld and decided he needed to land the plane befor e he circled again. I thought, If I crash on these kids, I wont forgive myself, Guer ra said, and if I circle ar ound again, I might not make the runway. He hit the last part of the runway, rolled off the end and his retractable landing gear collapsed. The plane spun on its belly and slid to a stop just a few yards away from a 20-foot drop, Guerra said. I think the plane is totalled, Guerra said. It was ironic, he said, that he thought that day all his plane need ed was fresh paint. Sear ch and rescue planes immediately picked up his planes automatic emergency beacon while he notied ofcials that he was on the gr ound, was OK and his plane was just off the end of the runway in case other planes might overshoot their land ings. S ince he wasn t injured, he wasnt wor ried yet about calling home y et and told air trafc control to hold on calling his wife. He was still speaking to local deputies and preparing to talk with the the Federal Avia tion Administration in the mor ning when Khan got calls from reporters wanting her reaction. S he still hadn t heard from Guerra yet. She said her whole life ashed before her eyes and she thought, Im too young to be a wid ow and raise (our) kids b y myself. The news reporters were very nice about it and told her the pilot was OK. They reassured me, Khan said. The couple had tak en their children on a ight two w eeks befor e to have lunch at Lakeland Linder Regional Airpor t, and the couple had used the plane to go on mission trips in Haiti, Khan said. It was fortunate that the engine didnt fail with the whole family aboard. She said she and Guerra, as doctors, go through mental check lists in a crisis. Guerra said he w ent thr ough his as a pilot. I felt the peace of God, Guerra said. The Bible says, They who call on The Lord will be saved. Khan said he was saved because he such a good pilot. And the grace of God, Guerra added. Khan said she feels like God has a plan for them, and that they can take commercial ights for mission trips in the future.

PETERSBURG A group of University of Flor ida researchers are using steam in an attempt to kill a deadly citr us disease thats ravaging the states groves. Researchers at the Institute of Food and Agricultur al Sciences said Thursday they v e tented and then enveloped trees in 136-degree steam for about 30 seconds in an attempt to kill citr us greening bacteria. Citrus greening is a bacteria spread by the Asian Citrus Psyllid. The disease begins in the root and starves the tr ee of nutr ients, eventually killing the tree. F lor idas citrus growers have been the hardest-hit in the U.S. and researchers are working furiously to come up with a vaccine or cure. Researcher Reza Ehsani said the steam treatment is not a cure for greening be cause it cannot reach the tr ees root system. The steam heat kills the bacteria, and while it doesnt cure the tree entirely from the disease, it does extend the tr ee s lifespan, allowing a grower to harvest mor e fr uit. The treatment also might ultimately attract more bacteria-carrying psyl lids. Ehsani said trees treated with steam usually drop their old leav es and a signicant number of new shoots dev elop on the tr ee. Those new shoots then attract the psyllid, the bug that carries the bacteria and then the chances of re infection are high. Ehsani will present his ndings Friday at the International Citrus Beverage C onfer ence in Clearwater. On Wednesday, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said that a federal Tree Assistance P r ogram is now being extended to Florida growers affected by citrus greening. The citrus industry contributes $9 billion per year to the state s economy and supports about 76,000 jobs. Most of Floridas oranges are used for juice, unlike C alifor nia oranges which are destined for the fresh fruit market. According to the USDA, the U.S. citrus crop was worth $3.15 billion in the 2012-2013 growing sea son, down 15 percent from the pr evious season. The value of the Florida citrus crop was $1.53 billion in the 2012-2013 growing season, and the state comprised 63 percent of all U.S. citrus production.Steam being used to kill citrus greening bacteria Park it in the CLASSIFIEDSj=nand watch itgofast!

Zachary told the tour nament director the Chamber of C ommer ce would vote on whether it wanted to help sponsor the event, and Scott r etur ned to Montgomery. I n a couple of w eeks, Scott was back in Springdale to talk with members of the Chamber of Commerce, who had arr anged for an investigation of Scott and found two things: (1) That he was a pret ty fair country insur ance salesman, and (2) that, ther e was no pr evious record of such an or ganization as the AllAmer ican Bass Tournaments. The Springdale Chamber decided that a r eal estate developer named Joe Robinson should confr ont Scott. They met in Scotts room at the Holiday Inn in Springdale. Now, tell me, Mr. Scott, Robinson said, how much experience do you have in putting on bass tournaments? Not a dang bit, Scott told him bluntly. The truth did not bother Robinson My son and I were involved in developing land out at Beaver. We were looking for some body to stir up something, so we decided to go along, R obinson recalls. The Chamber of Commerce had v oted not to suppor t the project. Lee Zachary was half scared, too because he d never even heard of a bass tour nament. Some were concerned that this outsider would y the coop with the entry fee money or get in a nancial mess and cause some bad publicity . R obinson nev er believed that, and neither did a local physician named Dr. Stanley A pplegate Applegate owned a large share of the Hickory Creek Boat Dock and also was looking for someone to help promote inter est in Beaver Lake. He loaned R ay Scott and the All-American Bass Tournaments $2,500.00 for expenses with only one admonition! If this tournament goes, I want my mon ey back, Dr. Applegate told Scott.

The highly anticipated matchup between Labelle and S ebr ing was rained out long before the scheduled 7:30 / p .m. start time. Usually in these cases the officials will hold off until 9:30 / p .m. to make a decision as to wheth er or not the game will be play ed. B ut with nearly half the field under water from Fridays hourslong deluge, the decision was made easy That situation had already arisen a few weeks ago against Jupiter Christian in the S tr eaks season opener. I t seems to be the recurring theme for Sebring with their games this year, rain ing at four of the five games scheduled and getting r ained out in two of them. With this washout the Streaks will have more time to prepare for the meeting with the Cowboys. It has been unde cided whether or not the game will be made up however, and it being a non-distr ict game the coaching staffs for both teams will have to mull over the importance of the game itself for when it comes down to the wire in actual district games. This gives Sebring an extra week of rest and recuperation as it heads into its bye week. The next scheduled game for the Blue Streaks is a district game against Lake Region on the road at 7 / p .m. on Friday, Oct. 3.When it rains, it pours BY JAMES TA YY L OR NEWS-S SUn N CORRESPOn N DEn N T AVON PARK Tor rents of rain befell Joe F r anza Stadium in Avon Park as the Red Devils faced the Cardinal Mooney Cougars, r esulting in a ood of turnovers. There were six in all for Avon Park and they had a punt blocked as well, as they fell to Car dinal Mooney in the soggy conditions 14-0. You live for nights like this, said Avon Park head coach Wade Jackson. This is what it is all about. You get out there and get in the trenches and its war, we have to start getting that way. We had some kids do that tonight. The defense again played well for the Red Devils, they were just unable to overcome the number of turn overs. O nce again we keep shooting ourselves in the foot, Jackson said. The effort is there from a lot of kids and we are rebuilding, I hate to keep saying this week in and week out, but we are. We just have to keep believing in our selves and get over that hump he added. Like I told the kids, they pr actice har d, they work hard, and we have to nd a way to turn the switch on when we get on the eld from the practice eld. An early turnover by Avon Park gave Cardi nal Mooney excellent eld position. I nside the D evils red zone, the defense held rm and forced a turnover on downs at the 19. N either team got their offense on track in the rst quarter in the sloppy weather conditions. The Red Devils put together the rst solid offensive drive of the night to start the sec ond quarter. S tar ting from their 19, they put together a 10-play drive to the Cougars 30 before the drive stalled and they turned the ball over on downs. With less than ve minutes in the half, the Cougars intercept ed their second pass of the night on the R ed Devil 45. A 20-yard pass and a face mask penalty on Avon Park quickly put the ball on the 14. Cougar running back Jaz Mungeon ran the ball twice, the second time for four yards, to reach the end zone to give Cardinal Mooney a 6-0 lead. The Cougars got the Devils cant quite cage Cougars James Taylor/News-SunAvon Parks Warren Buckner (3) and Claudy Antoine (31) hold Cardinal Mooneys Bryce Williams (21) to no gain.SEE AP | A12 FISHIN AROUND I*_ ,; ,rte-. :.J ``III.400................................

So he and Robinson dr o ve to Rogers to vis it the ofces of DaisyH eddon. Ray talked to the folks in charge of publicity at Heddon, then, and offer ed H eddon the sponsorship of the tournament if they would put up $5,000, Robinson remembers. But they turned him do wn, with the old business deal: Mr. Scott, we have exhausted our advertising budget for this year, and ther e s no way we can help you sir. . Discouraged, Scott returned to the eightfoot square ofce in the back of the Spring dale Chamber of Commerce building, and star ted tr ying to drum up entries for the AllAmerican tournament. I knew from the insurance business that if y ou begged people to come or put up handbills on telephone poles no one would respond, Scott says, We had to make it seem like a big deal, so w e sent out invitations to make people think that being invited was an honor. As he had in his insurance business, Ray Scott began a prospect le. In one box, he had 3 x 5 note cards with the name of a sher man on each card. In another bo x, he had 5 x 7 cards with the names of nominators. Everybody could be a nominator, Scott now explains. The cards would the name of the nominator at the top, plus the names of good shermen hed suggested. Wed write letters of invitation to the shermen whose names had been sug gested. When I rst star ted, I had four names in the box. I still use that system, but now the box has 270,000 names in it, declares Scott. One of the rst names Scott had was Tom Mann, a fellow Alabamian and a shing tackle manufactur er whom Scott had met in 1964, when Mann was a state game ranger. Scott talked to Mann on the WATS line and invited him to attend the All-American tour nament. He also got the names of sev er al other shermen from Tom Mann. Each was sent a letter: Dear Sir: On June 6, 7 and 8, 1967, the most important event in sport shing will take place at Beaver Lake in north-west Arkan sas. It is the happening called the All-Amer ican I nvitational Bass T our nament in which Americas greatest anglers will come forth in a r od-to-r od combat of shing skills. The awards are out lined on the enclosed br ochur e, as are the rules that will govern this event and insure a fair competition. Y ou hav e been recommended by your good fr iend T om Mann. Tom says that you are an honorable, decent gentleman who is also an ex cellent bass sher man and dev oted to the spor t. F or this reason, we extend our war mest invitation to you to participate. Please read over the enclosed awards schedule and rules that will govern the tour nament. After making y our decision, please let me know within three or four days by calling collect and in dicating your intention to par ticipate Sincerely yours, Ray Scott Not all the sher men we invited called back, but a lot did, Scott recalls. When they did, the secretary would tell em I was in conference. Id call back on the WATS line, get their reply to the letter and ask em for more names. For most of the fol lowing two weeks, Ray Scott spent hours in the cr amped Springdale ofce. Some nights he slept ther e But with less than a month before the tournament, ther e w ere only 35 entrants! Scott and his backers had decided it would take 65 shermen at $100 each to pay expenses Scott went to Robinsons of ce J oe, were stalled out at 35, he said. If you say the word, Ill go home, and well forget the whole thing. What do you mean go home? Joe Rob inson sputtered. My business isn t very large, but Ive got enough funds to make the difference if we come up short. Were going to show regard less! Scott took hear t. Almost immediately things began to fall in place A shing club from Memphis decided it was going en masse to sh the tournament. Scott also knew there were a number of eager bass shermen in the Tulsa, Oklahoma, area, but none respond ed. Scott prevailed on a Tulsa T ribune outdoor editor named Bob C obb (no w the editor of BASSMASTER) to issue a challenge to the S ooner shermen to meet Memphis anglers face-to-face. All Ive heard around Beaver Lake is how that Tulsa crowd keeps the road hot coming backand-forth, Cobb was told by Clyde Harbin, president of the Mem phis Bassmen. And, we keep hear ing about all the bass you Tulsa boys are catchin. Well, we think Memphis has some pretty good bass shermen, and we dont think another group can outsh us ev en on their home waters. The Tulsans took the challenge hook, line and sinker. They agreed the total score of the top 10 Tulsa bass shermen would be compared against the total catch of the top 10 from Memphis. Each member of the win ning team would then get to take his spoils one lur e from the tacklebox of his counterpart on the losing team. The members of the Memphis team decided to go even fur ther: If they lost, they would giv e each angler fr om Tulsa a badge which r ead I Beat A Memphis Bassman.

P alm B each was up next and came in with a 12-6 record, but dropped to 12-8 after Pasco and SFSC topped their namesake Panthers in four sets each.

SFSC FROM PAGE A A 12 BY LINETTE WELLS NEWS-S SUn N CORRESPOn N DEn N T LAKE PLACID The Lady Dragons were back in action Thursday night as they hosted county and district r iv als Avon Park. This long-standing rivalry perennially brings out the best in both teams and this night didn t disappoint. I t was perhaps, the battle of the season for both squads as Lake Placid came back from an early decit to win in ve sets. This is the second meeting of the year, with Lake Placid cruis ing to a win in the Sebring Preseason tour nament, which gave the Lady D evils all the incentive they needed. The rst set started out nip-and-tuck as things r emained tied up until 9-9. Thats when Kailin Brown got hot from the service stripe and served up ve aces in a six-point run to blow it open and put the Dragons up 15-9. From their, Lake Placid kept up the pace and took a 25-16 win. But that only fueled the Lady Devils, who would turn up the heat by winning the next two sets. Both were the typical back and forths ear ly on, with Avon Park pulling away at the end. I mani Tate and Keunna Robinson would tally four kills each in the two games, Otisha Smith added three more to go along with two blocks to push the Devils to 2519 and 25-22 wins. Facing their rst dis trict loss of the year, ho w ever, and the Dragons had to come up with something to not let this one get away After the third game they realized that they needed to come back together and play like a team, head coach Charlotte Bauder said. The momentum would soon change in game four when Lake Placid seemed to wake up and tie the series at two games apiece with great plays from Dani Daigle, who served up a four-point run with an ace. Rachel Alejandro had three kills, Tamija Douglas added two and one each fr om Maddie Wilson and Sarah Morris. Raveen Gobourne would later get the winning point on a big block to even the match back up with the 25-19 score. And so it was onto the 15-point tie break er to settle this one. B ut it was all Lake Placid as they rode the momentum of their previous win and rode a ve-point run, with Wilson serving up three aces for a 5-0 lead. A later run would be highlighted by two Morris kills and one each from Douglas and Jacalyn Baldwin as the Dragons closed it out with a 15-3 win. I told them that Avon Park wants us bad and that very well could be a preview of the district champi onship game, Bauder said. We cannot let teams as good and as scr appy as them go on scoring runs and not play hard and still expect to win.News-Sun Sports Edi tor Dan Hoehne con tributed to this story.Dragons claw past Lady Devils Linette Wells/News-SunSarah Morris goes up for a block attempt of this Keunna Robinson shot Thursday.

The Dragons gave the ball right back on an interception, but took it right back when Marquez Pride leapt in front of a Condomina pass near mideld. Lake Placid QB Foster Walker soon hooked up with Pride on a long pass down the sideline before Ja marques Coleman took it ar ound the r ight side to even things up at 7-7 at the 6:08 mark. But Caleb Dhaiti returned the ensuing kick into D r agon territory and it wasnt long befor e G arcia bulled his way into the end zone for a 14-7 lead. Garcia would take it in again less than four minutes later and Dhaiti would take one in from 12 yards out early in the second quarter for a 28-7 lead. Lake Placids offense would see some pos itive gains, but their speed and quickness w ere often nullied by the ever-slickening conditions. Late in the rst half, Isaiah Dhaiti ran in an eight-yard score with 1:11 left, and the Titans went for the kill with an onside kick which they recovered. A quick drive was capped off when Dhaiti scored his sec ond in a row with two seconds left befor e halftime to make it 427. The 35-point advan tage caused the second half to be play ed with a running clock throughout, but the Titans managed to add thr ee more touchdowns to provide for the nal margin. Its tough facing these larger schools, Robinson had said. But we just want to try and hang with them, not get anyone hurt, and be better pre pared for when we face schools that ar e mor e on our level. The games weve got coming up, Poin ciana and LaBelle, are teams w e can be mor e competitive with, he continued. And with how things are looking, its going to be a dog ght for second place in distr ict to hav e a shot at the playoffs.

They drove the ball to the Red Devil 13 with less than 30 seconds left before inter mission. O n four th-and-7 at the 10-yard line, the Cougars completed a dump pass over the middle. The Red Devil de fense responded instantly, holding the receiver short of the rst do wn and the goal line as time ran out in the rst half. Cardinal Mooney went into the break leading 6-0. Both offenses strug gled in the third quar ter as they both lost fumbles and neither team managed much movement with the ball. Cardinal Mooney created their break at the end of the third on special teams when they blocked a punt and recovered the ball on Avon Parks 30-yard line. Cougar quarterback Reese Vita capitalized and completed 2-of-3 passes, including a 13yard touchdown pass in the left corner of the end zone to Mitch Arimura. Arimura also caught the two-point conver sion to give the Cougars a 14-0 lead. The R ed D evils re sponded, driving to the C ougar 27-yar d line as Red Devil quarterback Darius Council connected on 3-of-4 passes for 40 yards. The tur no ver bug bit the Red Devils again as Council soon lost control of a snap and the C ougars r ecovered to foil the drive. That was the last threat by either team as Avon Park lost 14-0. Defense only gave up one big play, said Jackson. Other than that we had our backs against the wall most of the game, so Im real proud of the defensive effort. We did not tack le that well in the rst half, but the second half w e came out and took it to them. Jackson also noted that the offensive str uggles w ere on him and that they have to do better next week. The most important games are the district games and they are yet to come, he said. We have to get some of our playmakers healed up, until then somebody has to step up. One concern, besides the turnovers, is the number of personal foul penalties that the Red Devils have gotten the past few weeks. I will never con done what happened out ther e , said Jackson. I am proud they ar e physical and play ing tough football. You play that way whistle to whistle, but once that whistle blo ws you need to shut your mouth and get back in the huddle. The Red Devils will have another tough game Friday, Sept. 26, at Lakeland Christian.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, September 21, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: I co-own a professional service business with a woman whose appear ance has deteriorated significantly over the last three or four years. Mary was never a fashion plate, but she used to be presentable for business. Four years ago, she put on quite a bit of weight. She refuses to buy new clothes until she loses it, but she makes no real attempt to do so. Mary wears the same three pair of baggy pants to the office day after day. She does have two good outfits she will wear to see clients, but even those are threadbare. I dread the idea of a client dropping in and seeing Mary in her normal state, especially since she takes her shoes off at the office because her feet swell. She has become an embarrassment. How do you think I should handle this? IMAGE IS EVERY THING IN CALIFORNIA DEAR IMAGE IS EVERYTHING: If clients havent dropped in during the last four years, they are not likely to start coming in droves. However, your partner should look her best when she calls on clients, and she should not represent the business looking threadbare. You should handle this by addressing this part of the problem only. Unless you dress for the office looking like a page out of Vogue, let the woman be comfortable. P.S. I take MY shoes off at the office because I see no reason to wear 6-inch stilettos while my feet are under my desk. If someone comes in, I put them back on. Thats what your partner should do if the need arises. DEAR ABBY: I have been estranged from my family for many years. It was a decision I thought long and hard about, and I have no regrets. It was one of the wisest decisions I have ever made, and it helped me to maintain my mental and physical health. I recently had a baby, and my family has been sending me gifts. In the past, I have returned them all, but I feel torn under these circumstances because the gifts are not for me, but for my child. Normally, I would write thank-you cards for such things, but in this case I dont want to mislead anyone or set a precedent that such things are welcome. Please tell me how I should delicately handle this. There is no hope for reconcil iation, and my child will not be having a relationship with any of these people. I dont want to hurt anyone; I just want to be left alone. ETIQUETTECHALLENGED DEAR CHALLENGED: You have already cut your ties with these people. You do not plan to have a relationship with them, nor will your child. You are under no obligation to thank them for unwanted gifts, and your child will not be deprived if you send the gifts back. It appears this is an attempt by them to buy their way back into your life. The gifts should be returned unopened, with no comment.

Sunday, September 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 www.newssun.com FEELING FIT DEAR DR. ROACH: I heard that there is a sudden surge in people coming down with severe meat allergies. Is there any information as to why, after years of eating red meat, you suddenly can become extremely allergic? E.V. ANSWER: Meat allergies are uncommon; however, there has been a recent surge of meat allergies due to tick bites. I have read that over 5,000 cases of meat aller gy have been estimated in the United States, mostly in the Southeast. The allergy is most often caused by a bite of the Lone Star tick, which carries the carbohydrate alpha-gal. If introduced into the bloodstream, it can cause a reaction from eating meat, especially beef, pork and lamb. Interestingly, it is much more likely in people with blood types A and O. It isnt yet clear if the allergy will be temporary or long-lasting, but it can be very severe, and people who develop this allergy should avoid meat and carry an epinephrine device in case of exposure. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have a problem with my throat. I have something on my vocal cord. They have taken biopsies of it and have told me that it is not cancer, but that it could become cancer. I have heard that oral sex could be where I got this problem with my throat. Could you let me know? W.O. ANSWER: The majority of cancer and precancer ous lesions in the mouth, pharynx and larynx, and of the head and neck in general, are squamous cell cancers, and the most common risk factors are smoking and alcohol. However, recently there has been an increase in cancers in people who do not have these traditional risk factors, and there is strong evidence that one particular strain of HPV (HPV-16), the human papilloma virus, causes many of these cancers. The average time from exposure to HPV, which can be through sexual contact, is six years. I would suspect HPV in people with squamous cell cancer of the head and neck but no history of smoking or drinking, especially if there is a history of sexual exposure to HPV. I dont know what you have on your vocal cord. Its possible that you have a hyperplastic or dysplastic lesion on the cord (these are terms that indicate increased and abnormal growth, and are precursors to cancer). If so, your doctors will keep a periodic eye on your cord to look for any change or growth. Although not proven, we believe the HPV vaccine will prevent most of these cancers if the vaccine is given before exposure to the cancer-causing strains of HPV. Once exposed, the vaccine has little or no efcacy.Dr. Roach regrets that he is unable to answer individ ual letters, but will incor porate them in the column whenever possible.

Health newsletters may be ordered from www. rbmamall.com.The mystery behind meat allergiesBY KEITH ROACH, M.D. The Florida Department of Health in Polk County recognizes September as National Childhood Obesity Month and reports more than 23 million children and teenagers 31.8 percent ages 2-19 are obese or overweight in the United States. The State Surgeon General Dr. John Armstrong, has identied unhealthy weight as one of the biggest public health threats, said Dr. Ulyee Choe, director of the Florida Department of Health in Polk County. The problem with obesity is that it is linked with chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and strokes. Childhood obesity is a great concern in Polk County and the state of Florida. The most recent data from Florida Charts shows middle and high school weight proles for Polk County youth compared to the state of Florida: Middle and high school students who are overweight 18.8 percent of students in Polk County 15.5 percent of students in Florida Middle and high school students who are obese 14.5 percent of students in Polk County 11.5 percent of students in Florida Although these numbers may be alarming, public health ofcials strive to change unhealthy patterns that lead to obesity and inspire new, healthy lifestyle choices to reduce childhood obesity in the county. One way FDOH-Polk strives for healthier change is by bringing awareness to Fruits and Veggies month in September. Including fruits and vegetables in a diet lowers fat and calorie consumption and helps reduce the risk of cancer and other chronic diseases. Substituting high-fat and sugary snacks with fruits and vegetables is one of the rst steps to making healthier choices. FDOH-Polk is taking action to decrease child obesity by using the Women, Infant and Children program (WIC) resources that encourage eating more fruits and vegetables, along with other healthier lifestyle changes. As a way to promote Floridas Healthiest Weight Initiative, the WIC departments prescription for healthier, active living is the -2-1-0 Initiative. This effort is designed to encourage children and their families to adapt a lifestyle with simple and healthier options by choosing ve fruits and veggies a day, two or fewer hours of screen time a day, one hour or more of active play a day, and no sugary bever ages a day. The WIC department in Polk County began using the -2-1-0 Initiative this July, says Suzanne Wright, WIC interim nutrition director.

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, September 21, 2014 www.newssun.com PASSION FOR PETS We received a phone call this week from a woman wanting to settle a debate with her husband. The husband wanted to offer their Chihuahua Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, to which the wife objected. She called us to conrm that chocolate can be toxic to dogs. This got me to thinking that many people are familiar toxins to cats and dogs, but not necessarily to birds. There are several potential household agents that are toxic to birds. Heavy metal toxicosis from lead or zinc ingestion can lead to detrimental effects on birds. Birds are very inquisitive and like to explore with their mouths. Lead can be ingested from certain paint, toys, drapery weights, plumbing materials, shing sinkers or stained glass. Zinc is commonly found in hardware such as wire, nuts and bolts. It is also found in pennies minted since 1983. Zinc in wire and hardware comes from the process of galvanization, which is used to prevent rusting. Food and water dishes may be made of galvanized metal. Any items which show rusting or aking should be eliminated from a birds environment. Both types of metal toxicity can affect multiple tissues throughout the body and cause a variety of signs. Commonly, weakness, vomiting and neurologic signs may be present. Birds have unique and highly sensitive respiratory systems, composed of both the lungs and a series of air sacs. Noxious fumes can damage the fragile air sacs. Cigarette smoke can cause damage to the air sacs, but in addition the side effects of the nicotine can cause excitation and skin irritation. Teon coated pans should be used with caution around birds. If Teon is overheated, it emits a fume which can be toxic. Care must also be taken with cleaning agents, such as ammonia and bleach, which have strong fumes. While many fruits and vegetables can be good sources of nutrition for birds, avocados are toxic. The toxic agent in avocado is persin. This can be found in all parts of the plant, including the leaves, fruit, bark and seeds. Smaller birds are considered to be more susceptible to toxicity, but all species can be affected. Signs of respiratory distress and even death can occur within 12-48 hours after ingestion.Common toxicities in birds PHOTO PROVIDEDThere are several potential house hold agents that are toxic to birds. Dr. Ashley Lab Pet Vet For many pet lovers, bringing a furry friend along on a shopping trip would be the perfect way to spend a day. While many big-name chain stores do have a ser vice dogs only policy, you may be surprised to know that a number of them will in fact allow you to shop with your Shih-Tzu or browse with your bulldog. Please keep in mind that many of these stores only welcome pets on a limited basis. In some cases, the decision to allow pets is left to individual store managers. This means that while one chain location may welcome your pooch, another may have a no-pets policy. In other cases, a stand-alone chain location may allow pets, while a mall location may have to comply with that malls no-pets policy. Rules and policies change all the time from store to store and from location to location. Its important to contact any store you plan to visit with your pet to ensure that they will in fact allow him in even if you have brought him into that store before. Out of respect to the establishment and its patrons, any time your pet visits a store he should be leashed and under your control at all times. Some stores ask that pets ride in shopping carts and be kept securely and tightly leashed, and some ask that they be contained in a carrier. Make sure you are aware of the stores specic policies before visiting.Department storesSeveral department store chains around the country have been known to welcome pets. Banana Republic is notably dog-friendly, with some locations offering treats to canine visitors. The Gap and Old Navy, which are owned by the same company as Banana Republic, have also been known to allow dogs. Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, TJ Maxx and Marshalls allow dogs in at least some of their locations, and Nordstrom has welcomed pooches through its doors for over 20 years. Bed Bath and Beyond goes above and beyond at some of its locations by not only allowing pets, but providing specialty dog carts for them to ride in. Pet storesPerhaps not surprisingly, both Petco and PetSmart celebrate their doggie clientele, and leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome throughout each store at every location.

Sunday, September 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B5 www.newssun.com CROSSWORD SOLUTION PASSION FOR PETS DALLAS Brian Boone is practicing his silly voice. The 39-yearold soldier, who lost his lower left leg while serving in Afghanistan, looks down at Brindle, a 2-year-old Labradorgolden retriever mix and highly trained service dog. Good boy, says Boone. Sarah Koch, Brindles trainer, looks on. I want you to get a little silly with your praise, she says. Boone tries again. Goooooood booooooooy, he coos. Brindle looks up with doe eyes at his new master and looks all too pleased with himself. Brindle and Boone are one of four teams united through a partnership between Canine Companions for Independence and Baylor Scott and White Health in Irving, Texas. They believe its the rst partnership between a service dog organization and a health care system in the U.S., says Corey Hudson, CEO of Canine Companions. It costs $50,000 to train each service dog. Canine Companions, based in Santa Rosa, Calif., typi cally provides the service free of charge. In the new partnership, Baylor Scott and White Health nds patients who could benet from having a service dog, covers the cost of training the dogs and their owners, and supports them once they are home. Theres a need for service dogs among their patients, says Joel Allison, CEO of Baylor Scott and White Health. It ties in to our mission, he says. We think of it as part of our commitment to serve and meet the needs of all the patients that we serve. More than 25,000 Americans use ser vice dogs, according to Assistance Dogs International, a coalition of assistance dog organizations. The animals are trained to help children and adults living with physical and mental disabilities. Some service dogs are able to sense oncoming seizures and protect their owners from falls. Others help the visually impaired. Dogs raised by Canine Companions are trained to pull wheelchairs, pick keys off the oor and tug off clothes. The Baylor-Canine Companions partner ship began this week by training four clients. The group plans to expand to 60 clients next summer when a specially built facility with six rooms and 24 kennels will open in Irving. Boone is thrilled at his prescription for a dog. Lower back pain makes it difcult for him to pick things up, and he hopes Brindle will save him lots of wear and tear on his back. Recently, Boone was one of four Texans being matched with a service dog. He was joined by Stacey Odom, 45, a special education teacher; Melanie Knecht, 24, a music therapy intern; and Mackenzie Dunckelman, 13. They were selected from hundreds of applicants because their physical needs matched the help that Canine Companion service dogs can offer. The Texas location saves Boone and his classmates a trip to Canine Companions Southwest region campus in Oceanside, Calif., for the weeklong training. When they told me that pretty much everything was here right now that just was even more amazing, Boone says. He says he heard about Canine Companions through a friend at the Center for the Intrepid at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, a program for soldiers who have suffered burns or amputations. That friend has the same injury as me, he says. Hes a below-theknee amputee, and I saw how well-behaved and helpful his dog was. Boone was an explosives ordnance disposal ofcer when he was injured in 2011. Its like the Army bomb squad, he says. We took care of improvised explosive devices. It was an IED that severed his left leg and damaged nerves in both of his shoulders. Boone was unable to use his right arm for a year. Months of rehabilitation and physical ther apy helped him regain some strength, but he hopes that working with Brindle will make him even stronger. One recent morning, in a long classroom at Baylor Health Center at Irving-Coppell, Brindle is joined by four other Labrador-golden re triever mixes. (The fth dog serves as a backup in case one of the other dogs doesnt pass muster.) All sit silently in their kennels at the edge of the room looking out at Boone and his three classmates. A bark would mean instant failure. Only 40 percent of the dogs raised by Canine Companions graduate from the nine-month training program. The dogs that make it to Texas are the cream of the crop. Not everyone in the classroom needs a ser vice dog for themselves. Stacey Odom, a special education teacher from Bullard, hopes a service dog will facilitate her work with autistic children. Odom is the rst to volunteer for the drills that Koch asks the class to practice. The service dogs are taught at least 40 commands and the new students must learn the proper sequence of words to help the dogs respond. Illia. Down. Dont! Down. Good girl! says Odom to Illia, a shiny black dog. I just want to cuddle her, says Odom. She ghts the urge and instead asks Illia to obey a second command. Illia obeys and eagerly plants herself on the schoolteachers foot. Odom and Boone have waited more than seven months for this opportunity. Theyre the lucky ones. Canine Companions receives more than 100 applications a month, says Simi Balter, program manager at the organizations Southwest regional ofce. We get to witness small miracles, says Balter. She recalls a child with learning difculties who, having never spoken before, uttered his rst word to a service dog. Then there was the stroke victim who moved a previously paralyzed arm to stroke a service dog. Boone isnt asking for a miracle. But he says its not just physical tasks that Brindle will help him with its the mental task of healing. Dogs are very soothing, he says. Especially these calm dogs. Just being around them brings your spirit up. Thats hard to beat.Good boy!: Program pairs service dogs with health care systemBy SEEMA YASMINTHE DALLAS MORNING NEWS MCT PHOTOBrian Boone, 39, who lost his lower left leg while serving as a soldier in Afghanistan in 2011, holds the leash to Brindle, his two-year-old Labrador-golden retriever mix at Home Depot in Irving, Texas. Some locations even offer doggie day care for shoppers.Home improvement storesLowes Home Improvement and Home Depot are both well-known for allowing pets however, the degree to which pets are welcome varies widely from location to location. Its important to check with each individual store before bringing your dog with you to help you select your lumber or bathroom xtures.Outdoor storesTractor Supply Company, a wellknown agricultural and farming supply store, welcomes leashed, friendly dogs at most of its locations but thats what you might expect from a store that supports pet adoptions and holds an annual Pet Appreciation Week. Bass Pro Shops and Cabelas both of which are hunting, shing and all-around outdoor authorities also allow pets at many of their locations; a fact thats not wellknown, but also not surprising. Craft storesMichaels Craft Store has a reputation for being dog-friendly. While not every location may welcome your pooch, some of them will allow him to ride in the cart as you browse.Local storesMany local chains or mom-and-pop stores work to develop personal relationships with their clientele. They also tend to have a lot of discretion and autonomy when it comes to whether or not they will allow pets in their establishments. Call ahead to your favorite local retailer. They may surprise you by saying your pet is welcome, especially if hes small enough to t in a carrier or shopping cart.RETAILFROM PAGE 4 rfntMade for iPhone Hearing Aidbb TruLinkfr rbbtbbb bbb bbb ntbnbCall 863-386-9111 today. rbb Stream calls from your iPhone directly to your hearing aids using Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology Deliver pristine sound and exceptional listening clarity Help you hear comfortably in noise Eliminate buzzing and whistling Stream FaceTime, music and more directly to your hearing aids863-386-9111 4040 US 27 N.

Thump! Now my husband Ken was also awake. We looked at each other and that awful, crawling fear crept into us. Whats that? we both asked each other. Carefully leaving the bed at yet another thump against the bedroom door, we inched toward the door. Ken opened it slowly and peered out. Then I followed. Nothing. There was something out there, but what was it? Have you ever had fear wash over you? Then you know how debilitating it is. Paralysis overwhelms and you feel good for nothing while at the same time adrenaline pumps through your veins to face the unknown. No wonder the Bible instructs us to fear not. There are many verses that guide us to be courageous. For example in Joshua 1:9, NKJV, the Lord says to Joshua, Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord our God is with you wherever you go. In another Psalm we are shown how myopic faith can lead to the wrong perspective and cause fear. This faith cant see past whats right in front of us. Therefore, looking at the here and now without an eye to the big picture causes stumbling. Asaph, the musician and worship leader during King Davids reign, had shifted his focus from Gods goodness to seeing the prosperity of the wicked. He said in Psalm 73:2-3 that his steps had nearly slipped. For I was en vious of the boastful. That attitude actually takes away trust and replaces it with fear. He had to put his eyes back on God and declare his faithfulness and goodness. With faith renewed and re freshed, he could see the whole picture. No more myopic faith for him. As it says in Psalm 112:1b, 7-8, Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who delights greatly in His commandments He will not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. His heart is established. For us, all was in order so we calmed down. Suddenly, we heard the thump coming from the foyer. Condently, we explored. We laughed with joy to see a frog trying to nd his way out. Laughing we gave him a nudge in the right direction. Its good to remember that fear in the right place gives rise to not having it. Fear of God equals no fear. SelahJan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.The right kind of fear Jan MeropPAUSE & CONSIDER VATICAN CITY The battle lines are being drawn before a major church meeting on family issues that represents a key test for Pope Francis. Five high-ranking cardinals have taken one of Francis favorite theologians to task over an issue dear to the popes heart: Whether Catholics who divorce and remarry without an annulment can receive Communion. They have written a book, Remaining in the Truth of Christ, to rebut German Cardinal Walter Kasper, whom Francis praised in his rst Sunday blessing after he was elected pope as a great theologian and subsequently entrusted with a keynote speech to set the agenda for the twoyear study on marriage, divorce and family life that opens Oct. 5. Kasper, for a decade the Vaticans top ofcial dealing with the Orthodox and Jews, delivered his remarks to cardinals earlier this year on the issues to be discussed during the synod. At the popes request, he asked whether these divorced and remar ried Catholics might be allowed in limited cases to receive the Eucharist after a period of penance. The outcry that ensued has turned the 81-year-old Kasper into the biggest lightning rod for internal debate that the Catholic Church has seen in years. Conservatives, including the ve cardinal authors, have vehemently opposed Kaspers suggestion as contrary to Christs teaching on the indissolubility of marriage. The second most powerful man in the Vatican has backed their view: Cardinal George Pell, one of Francis key advisers, wrote in another new book that debating something that is so peripheral to begin with and so clear in church teaching amounts to a counter productive and futile search for short-term consolations. Every opponent of Christianity wants the church to capitulate on this issue, Pell wrote. We should speak clearly, because the sooner the wounded, the lukewarm and the outsiders realize that substantial doctrinal and pastoral changes are impossible, the more the hostile disappointment (which must follow the reassertion of doctrine) will be anticipated and dissipated. Francis, however, seems to think otherwise. He praised Kaspers speech, calling it profound theology that did him much good and represented a true love for the church. Church insiders say Francis is none too pleased by the war of words that has ensued, such that he instructed one of the book authors Cardinal Gerhard Mueller, the Vaticans top doctrinal chief not to promote it. The unusually raw and public debate has crystalized the growing discomfort among conservatives to some of Francis words and deeds, and sets the stage for a likely heated discussion on family issues. Church teaching holds that Catholics who dont have their rst marriage annulled or declared null by a church tribunal before remarrying cant participate fully in the churchs sacraments because they are essentially living in sin and committing adultery. Such annulments are often impossible to get or can take years to process, leaving untold numbers of Catholics unable to receive Communion. Francis has asserted church doctrine on the matter but has called for a more merciful, pastoral approach. He reportedly told an Argentine woman earlier this year that she was free to receive Communion even though her husbands rst marriage was never annulled. Knowing the issue is divisive, though, he has convened the whole church to discuss it. The new book asserts there really is no better solution and no grounds to argue for it since Catholic doctrine is clear. Aside from Mueller, the authors include another high-ranking Vatican ofcial: Cardinal Raymond Burke, the American head of the Vaticans supreme court.Cardinals debate marriage before crucial meetingBy NICOLE WINFIELDASSOCIATED PRESS .............................. ............................... .... ... .... ..
