Residents Bruce Arrowood and Joanne Tay lor protested the tax increase because it would r aise their xed-income households property taxes by $389 and $206, respectively, according to their tax notices. Elwell calculated that since the tax notice had a rate of $9 per $1,000 of taxable value, the $8.55 rate would cost Arro wood and Taylor $300 and $160, respectiv ely. Arrowood said the $389 amount was a 15 percent increase for him: That hits me hard. That was especial ly true after he lowered his r etir ement income to make it last longer, he said. Taylor asked if residents could expect another $200-$300 increase next year. I f I were a gambling man, I would not say were done, Elwell said. The tax rate was $9 per $1,000 of taxable value before the boom. It was lowered to $7.10 during the recession to give property owners a break, and held there to keep from piling on tax increases and forc ing the county to live off savings instead, E lw ell said. He said much of the overall county budget goes to constitutional ofcers and unfunded mandates from the state which the coun ty commission cant cut. O ut of the $60 million general fund, Elwell said commissioners only oversee 46 percent, or $27 million. After deducting mandates, the actual budget the county can cut is $17 million. The county star ted the budget pr ocess with a $10 million decit, which is huge, Elwell said, and while $3 million is less of a shortfall, i t s big. Another person asked why the county held a referendum on its one-penny infrastr ucture sales tax dur ing the August primary instead of the N o vember ballot, and Elwell also elded that question, since he proposed it. H e said the main concern was that The School Board of High lands County also has a half-cent sales tax on the N ovember ballot. Rather than have the two coincide, and risk that voters would defeat both measures togeth er in opposition to any new taxes he wanted to have them each to have separate opportunities to be considered alone. He said the one-penny infrastructure sales tax was on the pr imar y ballot in 1989 when it was last r enew ed. Elwell said, otherwise, he would have preferred to have the decision on the November ballot. TAX FROM PAGE A A 1 SPECIAL TO THE NEWsS-SUnN SEBRING The National Teach Ag Campaign is an initiative to bring attention to the car eer of agr icultural education, get students thinking about a possible car eer in agr icultural education, and support current agriculture teachers in their car eers Agricultural education teaches students about agriculture, food and natural r esour ces. Through these subjects, agricultural educators teach students a wide v ar iety of skills, including science, math, communications leadership management and technology. Ag teachers teach b y doing, not just telling; shar e their passion for agriculture; cr eate lessons that ar e hands-on; reach students, including those who might not be successful in a traditional classroom; teach about cutting edge topics like cloning, satellite mapping, biofuels alter native energy and more; tr av el in state, nationally, and even internationally; and work with new and emer ging technology fr om agr ibusiness companies C urr ently there is a national shortage of agricultural educators at the secondary lev el. I t is estimated that there will be hundreds of unlled positions across the United States this year, simply because not enough students ar e choosing to be agr icultural educators. The curr ent list of H ighlands County agriculture teachers consists of the following: Avon Park Middle, Tim Price; Avon P ar k High, Gary Dressel; Hill-Gustat Middle, Gordon Cox; Lake P lacid M iddle, Luci Johnston; Lake Placid High, Sharalyn Vester; Sebring High, Rebekah Wills and Sarah Cleveland; and Sebring Middle, Callie M addo x. According to Lee, Brittany Ware, a 2010 graduate of Sebring High School and 2009-10 chapter presi dent, has spent more than a y ear as a N ational Teach Ag Ambassador. In her role as ambassador Ware has presented workshops at both state and national FF A C onventions, made presentations in secondary classrooms, pr esented at the F lorida FFA Alumni Annual Retreat and much mor e Lee stated that Ware has a passion for agricultural education and the FFA and is one of only about a half do z en college students chosen nationwide as an ambassador. Lee w ent on to add that H ighlands County ag teachers do an amazing job as attested by having recent state FF A pr esidents hailing from Highlands County: Charlie Brown (APHS) in 2011-12, and M egan S tein (SHS) in 201314. Additionally, Angie Patino (SHS) is currently serving as State FF A vice pr esident and both current district ofcers are from H ighlands C ounty (Emily Little, District president, SHS and Jessica Belcher, District secretary, SHS). S helb y Hill (Lake Placid High School) in 2013-14 was a nalist (top four) in the state for Star Farmer for her outstanding record of accomplishments with her livestock pro gram and is currently a fr eshman at ABA C in Tifton, Ga. Highlands County has had numerous recipients of the pr estigious American FF A degree; the two most r ecent that will be r ecognized in Louisville, Ky. at the 2014 National FFA Convention will be Kyle Jahna (APHS) and Megan Stein (SHS). Rebekah Wills was selected as one of 20 educators across Flor ida to participate in the 2013-14 Flor ida Agriscience Leadership Program.National Teach Ag Day highlights teacher shortage Courtesy photoFormer FFA member Jerry Lee Wright (left) poses with his former agriculture teacher, Kellie Duke, and mentor Gary Lee. Wright is now a teacher at Woodlawn Elementary School and is quick to point out that agriculture education, the FFA and role models such as Duke and Lee made a tremendous impact on his life.

W e came into this week knowing it was going to be exhausting, said head coach V enessa Sinness. We beat Avon Park in four on Monday, we swept DeSoto on Tuesday, its been a very emotional week for us. But tonight was so much better than the rst time we played Okeechobee earlier this season, to go from that game to this was like a complete turnaround. With the busy week they had already en dured it was easy to understand what caused S ebr ings sluggish start. They trailed the Lady Brahmans for most of the rst set, but stayed right of the heels of their hooves. Even with being hit at, Sebrings defense Brahmans too much for Lady Streaks Dan Hoehne/News-SunKiersten McSheery, No. 4, and Caylin Webb got up for a block attempt against Okeechobees Cheyenne Nunez Thursday night.SEE VB | A11 BY JAMES TA YY L OR NEWS-S SUn N CORRESPOn N DEn N T LAKELAND After a half hour delay to star t the game the Avon Park Red Devils stunned the heavily fav or ed homecoming crowd of the Lakeland Christian Vikings, but a key injury and the Vikings aerial attack was too much for the R ed Devils as they lost to the Vikings 51-13. With rain falling at start time, Avon Parks Montrae Braswell stood near his goal line to receive the opening kickoff. Catching the ball on the ve, he moved up on his blockers as though he was going to turn in either direc tion. I nstead, he r an right through the heart of the Vikings kickoff cov erage as though he was being shot thr ough a gridiron wormhole, emerging in the open around the 50 with a full head of steam toward the end zone. B r aswell returned the kickoff 87 yards before nally being pulled down by Lakeland Christian at the 8-yar d line Seizing the moment, Avon Parks Joe Nance carried the ball for seven yards to the one before Adarius Council broke the plain on a quar terback sneak up the middle for one yard and the touchdown. Less than two minutes in and the Red D evils held a 7-0 lead over the quieted Lake land Christian crowd. The A v on Park defense carried the momentum, forcing the potent V iking offense to punt after three plays and getting the ball back for the offense at the Red Devils 19. What star ted as a eld of dreams moment soon snapped back to r eality as the Red Devils fumbled and lost the ball on their 14 yard line. Lakeland Christian capitalized on the Red Devils mistake, scoring on two running plays to tie the game at 7. The Red Devil offense stalled on their next possession and a shor t punt gave the Vikings the ball on Avon P ar ks 36. Lakeland Christians Larenz Deshazor got behind the Avon Park defense on their rst Vikings sail past Red Devils James Taylor/News-SunAvon Parks Darius Council (7) follows his oense line to sneak in for a 1 yard touchdown to give Avon Park a 7-0 lead.SEE AP | A12 BY DAN HOEHNE NEWS-S SUn N S SPORTS E EDITOR Head coach Jason Robinsons worries were realized Friday night as the Poinciana Eagles notched a 3830, overtime win over his Green Dragons. Watching lm of their game against Celebration, they moved the ball well, he had said. They would get into scor ing position, but just w er ent nishing. They took that step Friday night. Two touchdowns came in the rst quar ter, while Lake Placid counter ed with touchdo wn and Carlos Santana eld goal for a 14-10 Eagle edge after one. The D r agons seemed to take control as the defense stiffened and the offense put two more touchdo wns on the board for a 24-14 lead at the half. But Poinciana cut the lead to 24-22 with a third quarter touch down, and dueling touchdo wns in the fourth, with the Eagles making good on their two-point conversion and Lake Placid not, the game was knotted at 30-30 at the end of regulation. And it was in over time that Poinciana did, in fact, nish with a touchdo wn and two-point conversion to send the Dragons home with a loss. But while coming home on the short end of the stick, it was another learning ex perience in a closely contested game for the young squad. The impor tant part of the Dragon schedule now approaches, wher e lessons lear ned will be needed to help in the district standings.

B ut a win is a win, and the district record was kept without a loss thus far. Things started out well enough, with the Dragons racing to a 7-2 lead in the opening set, before the Wildcats stayed even over the next eight points. But staying even wasnt going to do much as it just kept the Lake Placid lead steady. The Dragons were helped in the set by three Rachel Alejan dro kills, with two more fr om R aveen Gobourne and two service aces from Maddie Wilson as Lady Dragons keep district record clean Dan Hoehne/News-SunRaveen Gobourne watches a McKeel shot get past the block attempt she and Maddie Wilson were going for.SEE SFSC | A11SEE LP | A11Green Dragons downed in OT 1V/Jra.fit 8 _w+dM omi1 I'

They managed to keep the ball in play and volley back and forth numerous times throughout the set. Keeping just a few points behind up until 20, the Brahmans were able to slide past Se bring and take the rst set 25-20. The second set seemed as though it was a mirrored image of the rst. Okeechobee was able to maintain control throughout most of the set with Sebring still right on their tails. Okeechobee did have control of the set, but the Blue Streaks did not back down without a ght. They continued to make the Brahmans work for each and ev ery point they made. The Lady B r ahmans were nally able to break away again as they had in the rst set and nished off the second set 25-15. The third set would be one to show just how much heart and perseverance Sebring had left after being down two sets to none. This time around would play out just a little more in the Blue Streaks favor. In the start, it was the same story as the rst two sets. Both of the teams battled back and forth for two reasons in the set: Okeechobees pur pose being to take a sw eep home with them, Sebrings was to stay alive and hopeful for a comeback win. There almost seemed like there was a spark of energy that struck within the Blue Streaks in the third set. If Okeechobee want ed a win, they were going to have to earn it. S ebr ings frontline put a wall up along the net and allowed very few balls past. Over passes that came too close for comfort were shut down quickly for easy points for Sebring. Late in the third set it looked like Okeechobee was going to take the set and match, but Sebring was able to squeeze in two more points to take it 25-23. Seeking revenge, the Brahmans came out in the fourth set hungry for a win. They pulled away from Sebring, extend ing their lead up to 6-0, for cing S inness to call a timeout to settle down her team. The timeout helped slow down Okeechobee as the Blue Streaks were able to put up a couple points to put the Brah mans back on their heels The Lady B rahmans nally kicked it into gear to take the set and match 25-19. Hannah Gotsch led the team in kills with 9, followed by Cadie OHearn with 8 and Hannah Kaszubowski with 6. Kylie Bowers led the team in assists with 11, followed by Kiersten McSheffrey with 10. Ansley Selander led the team in digs with 25; followed by Saman tha Allison with 11. C aylin Webb led the team in blocks with 4. The busy week complete, the slate is a lot clear er this w eek with only a Tuesday home date against Hardee on the docket. VB FROM PAGE A A 9 play, look like the prohibitive favorites, leaving a wide-open battle for the second seed. They ar e a very athletic team, more athletic than us, head coach K im C rawford said. But from the looks of it, were going to be very competitive in the conference this year. And if those two, high-adrenaline matches werent enough for one week, South Florida hosted a tournament Friday and had two more matches on the day, which the Panthers split. Against St. Johns River in the early-af ternoon contest, they came away with a four set win. They took a 25-15 win in the opener before dropping the second set 25-21. B ut then they w ent on to convincing, 2514 and 25-18 wins to close it out. Jada Spano and Elle Barnett posted dou ble-doubles, displaying their v ersatility with 12 kills apiece 22 and 13 digs, respectively. Darby Jones and Melanie Sandoval also went for double-digit digs with 17 and 12. Friday nights match didnt quite go so well as South Florida was swept by a strong San ta Fe team, though they did put up quite a ght. The S aints came in with a 15-2 record on the season and have won nine of their last 10. But the Panthers hung right with them in the opener and had a lead into the teens before being edged 2522. Santa Fe breathed a little easier with a 2518 win in the second set, but SFSC pushed them to their limit in the nal set before the Saints escaped with a 27-25 win. Barnett lead the team in both kills and digs with 10 and 17 and setter Kelsey Sand ers had 17 assists. The P anthers w ere slated to nish the tournament Saturday with matches against Broward and Webbers JV team, and jump back into conference play with a Tuesday date at Polk State Col lege and a home contest against St. Petersburg Thursday. SFSC FROM PAGE A A 9they pulled away for a 25-14 win. But things went awry in the second set as McKeel kept things even most of the way through. Tied at 19-19, the visitors went on a 6-1 run to nish off the 25-20 win and even the match at one set apiece. It got a little scram bled in that set, head coach Charlotte B auder said. Girls were try ing to do too much and w e d have three girls going for a dig, or trying to pass the ball. McKeels momentum seemed to car ry over at the start of the thir d, holding a 4-3 lead early on. But thats when the Lady Dragons regrouped and locked in, going on 21-9 r un to have them on the brink of the 25-14 win. Jacalyn Baldwin was the big hitter of the set, recording four kills, with Gobourne adding two. Shannon Huber had two service aces in the set. Lake Placid then kept it going in the fourth and nal set. Tied at 4-4, a 13-6 run broke it open with three Baldwin kills and two from sophomore Sarah Morris leading the way. Mary Grace Bates had four of her teamhigh 14 digs in the set as the Lady Dragons closed it out with the 25-17 win. We still get caught playing down to the competition and not staying focused, Bauder said. But that will get a kick this weekend. This weekend was the 14-team OVA In vitational in Orlando where the competition was assuredly stepped up That will be good for us because well have our hands full on Monday against Okeechobee, Bauder added. Our team has been r eady for the competition for a long time and were looking forward to the challenge to get us playing our best.

Avon Park was forced to punt on their next drive, and the Vikings started from inside their own 20. D isaster str uck on a quarterback run to the right when the Red Devils linebacker, Claudy Antoine, severely injured his left ar m that caused a half hour delay and he was transported to the hospital. The Vikings struck quickly as Deshazor again got behind the defender on the left side to catch a 69-yard touchdown pass to pad their rst quarter lead to 20-7. The game continued to spiral downward for the Red Devils in the second quarter as a partially blocked punt and a bad snap to the punter led to two of the three touchdowns scored by the Vikings as the Red Devils fell behind 41-7 at the half. To be honest with you, when Claudy (An toine) went down, a lot of air came out of us said Avon Park head coach Wade Jackson. Hes the defensive leader of this team and they saw that, we kind of played tentatively after that. We cant do that, he added. I expressed to them at halftime that we have to play hard from the get go and however the ball bounces, it bounces. I hope we are learning that. The Red Devils did not roll over, stop ping the Vikings on their rst dr iv e on the second half and then putting together and impressive drive that was capped off by an 8-yard touchdown run by D re Neely to make the score 41-13. Lakeland Christian responded quickly with a drive of their o wn that r esulted in a touchdown on a 36yard pass down the middle from Alexander to RB Marlow as the V ikings led 48-13. The Vikings added a 33-yard eld goal in the fourth quarter to account for the 51-13 score. We are young, we are beat up right now, said Jackson. Weve just got to get some people healthy and get some people back. I liked the ght we had in the second half. Despite the loss, Jackson stated that he saw some positive things. We are still mak ing some mistakes, but we ar e ghting hard and doing some good things, we just got to keep our heads up and working hard, Jack son emulated. H e noted that they have been building towards districts all season and will put their schedule up against anybody s in the state of Florida. We are going to keep ghting and we are not going to make excuses, Jack son stressed. This is a gr oup of ghters and warriors and I know they will keep doing that. The Red Devils start their district season next week at Clewiston against the Tigers. Nothing fancy, said Jackson. They play good, hard-nosed football and they do not make mistakes. You have to go in there and beat them and that is a tough place to play. We are going to give it our best shot and see what hap pens.

I t is hard to get momentum going, said A v on Park head coach Shane Wirries. It was so quiet here tonight and the games were not close at all. That last game I put people in different po sitions, Wirries added. R egardless, I still want to have a good game and see them do good things. Otisha Smith is slowly recovering from a knee injur y but was still dominant as she led the team with 10 kills. Her sister, Acuria, added 5 more as did Imani Tate for the Red Devils. Otisha Smith also led Avon Park with 7 blocked shots. With that, she added 4 aces to her offensive totals for the evening. Kashaundra Martel led the Red Devils in aces with 5. Aaliya Eastburn post ed 15 assists and Krystal Rivera had 39 digs for team highs in each r espective category.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, September 28, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: My wife is in a nursing home and will be for a long time. While I was caring for her at home, I was very lonely. She wasnt there for me except to demand that I do this and that. I did what I could to keep her happy, but nothing worked. I had no life of my own. My life was wrapped around her and doing the best I could to take care of her. I did all the chores that were required to keep the home running. Would it be wrong to find a lady friend to do a few things with, like have dinner, go to a movie or just for a ride in the country or to the beach? My son thinks I shouldnt do it, but he doesnt know how lonely I am, nor do the other kids in the family. NO LIFE OF MY OWN DEAR NO LIFE: Youre asking me a question no one can decide FOR you. Much depends upon the quality of your marriage before your wife became ill. You promised to love and cherish her until death do you part. If shes still in her right mind, you owe it to her to be there for her to the extent that you can -just as she would be if you were sick and in a nursing home. You should discuss all of this with your children. While it is important that you spend enough time with your wife to ensure that shes being well cared for, you are also entitled to have a life. Some husbands WANT to spend every possible minute at their wifes bedside, while others do what you are contemplating. Only you can look into your heart and decide what would be best for all concerned, because it may affect your entire family. DEAR ABBY: My boyfriend of five years, Spencer, has always been very sweet -until this year. This year he has become verbally abusive, telling me Im a drunk (I dont drink liquor) and insane. (No one else says there is anything insane about my behavior.) Spencer frequently tells me my opinions prove Im a jerk. Until this year, I have been deeply in love with him. I know his verbal attacks on me are unwarranted. All I want is some peace and quiet. Please advise. BEATEN DOWN IN L.A. DEAR BEATEN DOWN: Your boyfriend is showing all the signs of a man who wants out of a relationship, but doesnt have the courage to come out and be direct about it. If you want peace and quiet in your life, find a man who appreciates what you have to offer, doesnt make false accusations and treats you well. Youll find what youre looking for after you tell Spencer youre NOT drunk, youre NOT crazy and youre not in love with him anymore, so GOODBYE. DEAR ABBY: I have been having a problem with my husband ever since his mom died. All he talks about is how much he misses her and how he wants to die. I loved his mother like she was my own, but it has been a year since she went, and Im getting tired of the attitude and the behavior he displays. He is so mean now that I am thinking of leaving him because I cant take it anymore. Can you help? TIRED OF IT DEAR TIRED OF IT: It is one thing to grieve for a deceased loved one, and quite another to say you wish you could join the person. Your husband is stuck in his grieving process and needs professional intervention. Please urge him to get help. Was he always mean and abusive? If the answer is yes, by all means give serious thought to getting away. If not, tolerate it a little longer -providing hes willing to admit he needs to talk to someone and follows through.Husband craves companionship after wife enters nursing home DEAR ABBY Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www. DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. WEEKLY HOROSCOPEARIES Aries, though you are usually up for a conver sation with someone you dont know, this week you could be in a more conservative mood. Youll have future chances to chat. TAURUS You have been on a shopping binge of late, Taurus. If you have unlimited funds, this would not be so problematic. But finances are tight, and you should be more cautious. GEMINI Gemini, you are often an entertaining and fun person to have around. This is probably why you get so many invitations to parties and other social occasions. Enjoy your fanfare. CANCER Surround yourself with children this week, Cancer. Theyll provide the unedited, honest information you desire right now. It can certainly be eye-opening. LEO Spend some quality time with a romantic partner this week, Leo. He or she can provide more of what you need, such as true affection and companionship, than whats offered by friends. VIRGO Virgo, you deserve credit at the office. If youre patient, some measure of recognition will come your way this week. Its a start to getting what you need. LIBRA Few people will accuse you of being uncommunicative, Libra. In fact, youre usually downright chatty. Its one of the traits people will admire most in you this week. SCORPIO Scorpio, a new person comes into your life and your attraction to this person catches you off guard. Its okay to flirt, but if youre already attached to someone, leave it at that. SAGITTARIUS Sagittarius, youre often the one to take the lead in conversations in your group of friends, but this week someone else takes the lead. Youre content to sit back and simply listen. CAPRICORN Capricorn, once you have gained enough confidence in a special interest, you may be able to turn it into a career instead of just a hobby. Keep working toward that goal. AQUARIUS Its time to tie up some loose ends, Aquarius. Rustle up some energy to take care of all those little things that need to be wrapped up. Youll feel a weight lift afterward. PISCES Pisces, increase your level of activity this week. Exercise can do you a world of good, especially if youve felt sluggish of late. Virgo, you deserve credit at the office FAMOUS BIRTHDAYSSept. 28: Hilary Duff, Actress (27); Sept. 29; Alfie Boe, Actor/ Singer (41); Sept. 30: Barry Williams, Actor (60); Oct. 1: Matt Cain, Athlete (30); Oct. 2: Brian Regan, Comic (57); Oct. 3: Clive Owen, Actor (50); Oct. 4: Shontelle, Singer (29).Across 1 Man with memorable thumbs 6 Watch displays, briey 10 Indian butter 14 Brief concession 19 Opposite of neo20 Childlike scirace 21 __ cloud: distant solar system region 22 Amadeus director Forman 23 Trust me 26 Latvians, e.g. 27 Caribbean music genre 28 Extremely cold 29 Mother in a colony 31 Accuse of misconduct 35 Soprano Dame Nellie __ 37 Westminster gallery 38 Condiment for pommes frites 39 On me 43 Classic muscle car 46 Spring 48 Match decision 49 Bad news from home? 50 Quarterbacks call 51 Voice of the difcult homeowner in Up 53 __acte 56 What a pump may supply 57 Small amounts 58 Manchester measurement 59 __ dream: optimists philosophy 62 Ogled 64 Expel 66 Tennessee team 68 Lindas role in Dynasty 69 Form 1040 no. 71 Help me 74 Poetic contraction 75 Faculty retirees 77 List in a subsequent printing, perhaps 78 Auctioneers word 80 Dixie bread 82 Themes 84 New York governor Andrew 87 Opera highlights 88 Clumsy sort 90 Three-time speed skating gold medalist Karin 91 Passed, as a bad check 92 Students goals: Abbr. 93 Vote out 96 __ Jima 98 Edible herring 99 Sturdy wood 100 Tell me 104 Is for you? 105 Chamber music piece 107 Greet warmly 108 Jordan, for one 110 Goes over again 114 Davis of Dr. Dolittle 116 Bit of chat room shorthand 117 Beth preceder 118 Search me 124 Nobelist Curie 125 Line at the dock 126 ER tests 127 Like a wolfman 128 Transports using runners 129 Fancy pitcher 130 Actor John __-Davies 131 Kates TV roomie Down 1 Skillful, kiddingly 2 Farm cry 3 The Hartford logo 4 Candy company mogul Harry 5 Suris parents, in entertainment media 6 Ben-Hur author Wallace 7 Tub trouble 8 The Sound of Music song 9 Edges furtively 10 Parting word 11 Old TV knob abbr. 12 La Salle of ER 13 Words to Brutus 14 What a loooong day! 15 Really big 16 Let me 17 Formal choice 18 Being, to Brutus 24 Americas Cup entry 25 Obscured by haze 30 Louisiane, par exemple 31 Mullahs faith 32 Reagans second attorney general 33 Kiss me 34 Followed a trail, say 36 Gillette razor 40 Piano composition 41 Stir up 42 Reagans alma mater 44 Cantina fare 45 Raw bar item 47 Machu Picchu locale 50 Corp. exec 52 Sends again 54 Erie or Huron 55 Comeback 57 Marine maintenance site 60 Bull: Pref. 61 Like many home movies 63 Seashore iers 65 Miss Gulchs bugbear 67 Participated temporarily 69 If You Go singer Jon 70 Campre snacks 72 Johnnys Edward Scissorhands co-star 73 Cope 76 Genetic strands 79 Baseball Hall of Famer Aparicio 81 Word with Side or End 83 Afx, as a button 85 Anne of comedy 86 Harder to account for 89 Spill, with up 93 Oops 94 Enjoyed a friends moms cooking 95 __ Dreams: 1986 #1 hit 97 Once around 100 They may be made after coin tosses 101 Former Disney exec 102 Tell 103 Big name in pianos 106 Expeditious 109 L.A.s region 110 Smacks into 111 Flier to Ben Gurion 112 Sinn Feins land 113 Production 115 Like French toast 119 Barbary __ 120 Covert WWII gp. 121 Rapper __ Kim 122 Sch. with a Narragansett Bay campus 123 Storm featureAh, Me!

Sunday, September 28, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 www.newssun.com SEBRING After more than 2,500 seats sold for its wildly popular Art Uncorked acrylics and watercolor painting classes, the Highlands Art League has announced Art Uncorked Palm Frond and Wine Glass painting classes now offered for non artists and artists who want to learn to paint on wood and glass in a casual, fun setting. Instructor Megan Ekenstedt said she is thrilled to be adding these techniques to the variety of art classes HAL currently offers, which includes acrylics, watercolor, culinary, drawing, sketching, multimedia and photography. Palm frond art is a three dimensional wall hanging that is made from an actual palm frond taken from a Florida Palm. As a palm tree grows, the branches dry and are trimmed. Whats left is a natural, wood-like hardened base that is durable and ideal for painting. No two palm fronds are alike, which lends to the uniqueness of each painted piece. Hand painted wine glasses are all the rage, and doing it yourself is a fun way to create unique, personalized gifts for friends and family or just to keep in your own kitchen. Upcoming classes include: Glasses of Hope pink wine glass painting on Oct. 3 (A portion of the proceeds from this class will fund mammograms for local women in need.) Mahi Mahi palm frond painting on Oct. 15 Turtles wine glass painting on Oct. 17 UF/FSU Masks palm frond painting on Oct. 22 Witches Brew wine glass painting on Oct. 28 Attendees will complete a project (one palm frond or three wine glasses) in one evening, led by a professional artist, and enjoy a fun, laid-back evening of creativity with wine and light snacks offered. Private parties and gift certicates are also available. Pre-registration with payment is required; class seats are limited and ll quickly. All class materials are supplied. Wine and light snacks will be available; attendees can bring their own as well. Art Uncorked classes start at 6 p.m. and are held at HALs Visual Art Center (the turquoise building behind Yellow House). Registration is $30 for HAL members; $35 for not-yetmembers. Register at www.

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Sunday, September 28, 2014 www.newssun.com Heartland Culture Alliance will debut a mother/daughter exhibit of art featuring Beverly Marshall and Tina Bologna with an artists reception Oct. 4 from noon to 2 p.m. Marshall is an award-winning artist who has competed internationally and placed in prestigious shows. She works in a variety of medium with sensitivity and skill. Bologna is a young, talented and driven artist exploring drawing, painting and digital art. I was around 9 years old and my older brother and I had always been rivals growing up, Marshall said. We competed in just about everything. We are close in age, just two years apart. Growing up, we always tried to outdo each other. He was older, and usually better at things than I was. One day, we were drawing and he was rubbing in how much better he was. Needless to say, that set a spark in me, started a drive. From that moment on, I decided that one day I would be better at drawing than he was. Within a few months, that day happened, and I found a new passion. I loved to draw with just a simple No. 2 pencil and a sheet of paper. I have never taken my talent too seriously, until now. I dabbled a little with it, here and there, as the years passed by. My kids came along, all four of them, and there was no longer any time to do what I loved. Life got in the way. So, after years of raising kids and helping in our family business, things nally slowed down. My kids were nearly grown, and there was time to draw again. In March of 2012, I once again picked up a pencil, for the rst time in over 10 years, and began to draw. I had forgotten how much I loved it. I had forgotten the passion that can drive me to capture, with my pencil, what I see. With lots of encouragement from some great friends and family, I decided to take a whole new path. I decided to take my talent a bit more seriously. I decided to follow my dream to become an artist, and share my art with others. Here I am, making that dream come true. I was born in 1997 and Ive wanted to be an artist ever since. From a young age I was always trying to create or learn something; whether it be teaching myself to sew or drawing pictures of things I had seen. Everyone around me always seems impressed by my work, especially for my age, Bologna said. Whenever I draw in class I would nd the other students looking over my shoulder to see what I had done, most of the time theyll make a comment about how good I am or how they wanted to learn how to draw as well, this kind of thing kept me determined and going. I know most artists my age tend to give up when they see someone do better work then them, but for me, it just drives me to work harder and be better. There are many forms of art that interest me, from painting to drawing and digital work, I like to try a little of everything. When I draw I like to do portraits, people with different styles and lives, models and kids, adults and children, just amazing wonderful people. Im still working on my painting skills, though for now I enjoy using spray-paint to create beautiful space scenes. My digital work is rather interesting, as I love making pictures of robots, along with the occasional human, more often then not my digital work will be cartoonish in style but I believe it is still great work. The event will be at the HCA Galleries in the lobby at Sebring Regional Airport. The reception is free and open to the public. Guests will meet the artists, enjoy food and drinks and hear classical guitar by Kenny Summers.

At rst, I felt intimidated to walk by as they ran toward us barking up a storm. Former mailman Ken talked calmly to the dogs as we approached. But I felt threatened. And then the most unusual thing happened. They stopped just short at an invisible line on their property. A boundary had been set that kept them from doing harm and kept us from harm. God did that when he gave us the Ten Commandments. Some have quipped that they are not the 10 suggestions. Others have seen them as too many dont rules and have shunned them. I see them as a loving God giving us boundar ies to keep us from doing harm and to keep us from harm. The Lord knew that sin would powerfully tempt us. And though it might actually look appealing and even have a bit of truth weaved in, it would cause us harm. He also knew that sin would cause us to forgo moral values and do harm for selsh reasons. Therefore, as protection and guidance for living lives that would keep us close to him and in good stead with others, he set up boundaries through the law. Later, the Lord Jesus Christ fullled the law. In Romans, the Apostle Paul helps us to under stand the laws pur pose in setting forth boundaries; while preparing us for its fulllment to change hearts, establishing right behavior through Gods grace. Paul admonishes us to recognize the law as a tutor to teach us how to live while through Christ we become new creations. He says in Romans 6:14b, NKJV, for you are not under law but under grace. And then in chapter 7, verse 6b we read, we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter. The law exposed sin and helped to keep us from it. But in Christ Jesus, we are new creations. His Spirit within us helps us to live by grace within the boundaries of righteous living. Those dogs could not approach us because the collars they wore were devised to shock them if they crossed that invisible fence installed underground. Through Gods Spirit within, we respect his laws and his guidance through the Scriptures to live lives that are pleasing to him and, as a result, a blessing to others. Selah. Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.Boundaries to protect and guide us Jan MeropPAUSE & CONSIDER BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (AP) The Catholic nuns who operate a suburban Detroit school plan to re-examine policies regarding the decision to re a gay teacher after she became pregnant. Sister Mary Jane Herb, president of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, said in a letter to Marian High School alumnae Monday that the congregation has been inspired to view similar incidents with a different outlook, the Detroit Free Press (http:// on.freep.com/1qts8F5 ) reported. Pope Francis has brought a sense of hope to our lives and encourages us to look at our Church with new eyes, she said. No, it is not likely that doctrine will change, however the Pope emphasizes that the values of mercy, inclusion and compassion need to be included in our response to complex situations. It was shared Tuesday on a Facebook page created to support the schools former science teacher Barbara Webb of Madison Heights. After notifying her employers of her pregnancy in July, the 33-year-old teacher was red from the all-girls high school in Bloomeld Hills the following month, she said, after working there for nine years. Her termination letter didnt provide a reason for dismissal, but Webb said administrators indicated the decision stemmed from her lifestyle decisions. The schools morality clause states employ ees can be red for actions that are directly contradictory to the Catholic faith. Herbs letter doesnt mention Webb by name. But it said the congregation will work with school ofcials to re-examine policies and procedures and others with expertise will provide various perspectives before a decision is made. When situations such as the one that emerged recently occur, the IHM community will provide a team of consultants to work with the administration, Herb said in her letter. Webb said she was happy after reading Herbs letter because it opens the door for change. I was relieved that someone had responded. To me, it was a response for a positive outlook for change It just opens the door for a new conversation, and thats what I was hoping for from the beginning, she said.
