Instructional coaches are professionals who specialize in helping teachers better perform their jobs in the name of helping children learn from even better instructors than they already have. Reading coach Tina Sterling and math coach Jen Westergom came before the board and spoke about a grant they were seeking to purchase video cameras for teachers to lm themselves and watch for things they can improve, as well as copies of author Jim Knights book Instructional Coaching. Knights book is a manual instructing coaches how to better aid the teachers they work with. Westergom said that while coaches were no doubt great at teaching children (otherwise they wouldnt be coaches), working with the adult teachers was a whole different animal. BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING Larry Ford of Sebring had a bear invade his garage and get into his garbage last weekend. Ford, who works as legislative assistant to Florida Senator Denise Grimsley, said he had seen a bear dragging his trash can a few days before at his home near Highlands Hammock State Park. So, he started keeping his garbage locked in his garage until pickup day. The other night, I had it in the garage and I forgot to drop the door, Ford said. The bear got the garbage and some feed Ford had in the garage. Bear populations have made a comeback, and the larger numbers have meant more encounters with humans. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission of cials held a workshop Tuesday night at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agriculture Center School board to look at refining instructional coaching program SEE COACH | A3 BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING Its time to throw out the ceremonial rst zombie as the Halloween season of cially gets underway in Highlands County tonight. There will be two events locally this evening. The rst will be the opening of the Terror Trail next to the Humane Society of Highlands County and the second, a Ghouls Night Out event in downtown Sebring. Staged by the Humane Society and a host of volunteers, the Terror Trail is back after a years absence. That, coupled with last weekends postponement due to wet weather, could mean a record crowd tonight. My phone has been ringing off the hook, said Humane Society President Judy Spiegel. Plus, we have that deal with Game Time at Lakeshore Mall. They get an hour free play there with a Terror Trail ticket purchase, which is like a $15 value. Our ticket price is only $12, so you do the math on that one.

www.newssun.comFriday, October 10, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A3 3096326 Youre not an administrator, and youre not in the classr oom anymore, so you have to partner with a teacher in a very unusual way, Westergom said. The key she said, was collaborating with teachers, rather than talking down to them. Talk less, she said. Hear what they have to say. Youre dealing with people. Most of the time, we want to live in a place where youre looking at the facts and asking what do you see? Youre working together and having a dialogue to come up with a plan for that teacher. With a smile, she said the advice she just gave would also help in marriages. You have to be con structive, Westergom said. You have to explain what you saw, and y ou hav e to recognize when to stop, because it isnt working or is causing fr ustr ation (with the teacher). The pr esentation ended with statistics of which coaches worked at which schools in the county. Every elementary school in Highlands County has a r eading coach, accor ding to data presented b y S terling, though not many of them have coaches for math, science or other subjects those ar e sav ed for middle schools and high schools, which have a generally wellrounded team of coaches. While not every school has a coach for every subject, Assis tant Superintendent B r enda Longshore said they have general coaches who can help out with multiple subjects. I n the long ter m, Longshore said she wanted every school to have a coach for every specic subject. This, she said, could only ensure even better student performances and outcomes B etter coaching will lead to better teachers, which will in turn lead to better students. The philosophy, Wester gom stressed continually, was not just about doing a job but about a peaceful state of mind when doing it. Be ambitious and push, but also be hum ble, she said. Sometimes you dont get the big hurr ah. Take care of yourself. Find positives in your day. at 863-385-6155, Ext. COA cC H FROM PAGE A A 1 BY LARR YY GRIFFIN STAFF WRITER SEBRING What do the YMCA and Walmart have in common? They both want to see less obesity in Highlands County. This is why the YMCA opened the Healthy Eating Kitchen Thurs day afternoon. W almar t has donated $25,000 through the W almar t Foundations State Giving Program to fund the building of a new kitchen at the Highlands County Fam ily YMCA, to be used for an after -school cooking program for children. It will be used to teach children about healthy eating recipes as well as get them ac quainted with using a kitchen. YMCA P r ogram Di rector Dave Scheck said the county s obesity r ates are higher than the national av er age citing 26.9 percent of adults in Highlands County as being obese and 20 percent of children, with 13.9 percent of adults having high blood pr essure. One less obvious danger to these sta tistics, Scheck said, is that many childr en ar e now coming down with adult conditions such as high blood pressure. Its scary, because kids are on medica tions they shouldnt be taking until they r e adults, if at all, he said. His solution was to go to Walmart and ask for funding for the Healthy Eating Kitchen. Were going by the YMCA Healthy Eat ing, Physical Activity standard, Scheck said. Were teaching them to have a fruit or vegetable with every meal they eat plus just eating mor e healthy food in general. Scheck said a big part of teaching children to eat healthier is through better snacks instead of their parents buying them a candy bar, he said they should have something like raisins or graham crackers. A lot of them are resistant and dont want to change Scheck said. But then they realize (the healthy food) is pr etty good. Laura VanFleet, who hosts the after-school program at the YMCA, said the kitchen was a great opportunity to ed ucate on healthier eating and living choices. They re not going to like everything we show them, she said. But a lot of the time they do. In addition to the kitchen, Scheck is also introducing a garden where the children in the after-school pro gram can plant their o wn v egetables and eat them later. It should be very effective, he said. If they gr o w it themselves, theyll want to eat it more. Theres more ownership involved.

Those planning to attend are re minded that parking this year will be at the S ebr ing International Raceway. Cars will park in the lot at Gate Three, and people will be shuttled over to the Terror Trail, a short distance away in the woods off Haywood Taylor Boulevard.

HALLOWEEN FROM PAGE A A 1 in Sebring so interested parties could come up with solutions W ade Ulrey, doing a study for the University of Kentucky, has found himself enlisted by the FWC to help monitor tally and manage the local bear population. He has tracked bears forg ing north-south cor ridors in undeveloped ar eas east of S ebring and Lake Placid, and also trekking from ar eas west of Lake Placid north to Highlands H ammock S tate Park. The bears are counted using hair snares, said M ike Orlando FWC bear management coordinator. Thr ee tr ees are encir cled with a couple of str ands of barbed wir e, and baited with a treat. Bears walk through the wire to get the treat and leave tufts of fur on the wire. The sam ples are sent to a genetics lab and coded to see ho w many individual animals visited the snar e From that, Ulrey was able to devise a rough estimate of 100 bears in Highlands County he hopes to have a more accurate number by the end of the year with a map showing how far bears are rang ing. Females tend to stay in relativ ely small areas while males explore, he said. B est of all, Orlando said, researchers dont have to trap, tranquilize and collar bears to tr ack them. B rian Pinson, High lands Hammock manager, said the park is getting a ton of bears. We had an adolescent (bear) licking the (campsite cooking) gr ills, Pinson said. Orlando said bears especially at this time of year are try ing to amass 30,000 calor ies per day to store fat for winter hibernation, which is why high-calor ie human food garbage is so attr activ e to them. He told Pinson that to repel bears from Dumpsters or campsites, they could use a high-concentr ation pepper spray called bear spray or paint-ball guns. How ever, he said hungry bears will come back if garbage or other food sources are not se cured. Pinson said he is looking for funding for bear-resistant Dump sters, and Orlando said FW C has gr ants for that. Other solutions include using electric fences fueled b y solar panels in r emote ar eas and better communication with trash collection services to ensure garbage nev er stays unpr otected long enough to attract animals. Angelina S otten, FWC wildlife biologist, said there was a problem recently in Highlands Park Estates and S ylv an Shores where garbage was not being picked up in a timely manner. Bears had all day to get into it, she said. Stakeholders asked about relocating bears, but Orlando said thats not very effective. Not only are bears effective at migrat ing back to their home r ange male bears range over 60 miles, which means any relocation would put them close to their home r ange. Bryda Porter of Highlands Park Es tates in Lake Placid has scar ed bears away with loud noises and has secured her gar bage. Her motto is respect a bear from a distance but has had bears come within 2025 feet of her while she worked in her garden. We have a higher bear count (through) our yard I believe due to it being a pathway into the state-owned lands beyond, Porter said. I nd them very in teresting to look over, and identify ones who hav e visited before. Porter said she would love to see more wild animal education, even in the schools be ing able to have FWC come in and explain local wildlife Other solutions offered for deterring bears included or dinances or homeowner covenants to br ing in animal food at night, using bird seed for parrots because it contains peppers, which bears dont like and placing nail beds under windo ws, but only in rural areas that dont have neighborhood children.

However, he also said that bears that have been food-conditioned, they will look for human food garbage at someone elses home. BY BARR YY FOSTER NEWS-S SUn N CORRESPOn N DEn N T SEBRING Sebring City Council members have taken the next step in the construction of a tness trail and disc golf course at the Max Long Recreation complex, as well as the installation of a new picnic pavilion at Veterans Beach Park. At its Tuesday night session, the council ap proved an interlocal agr eement that will see the city reimbursed up to $17,728 for the capital costs. According to the contract, $16,581 of that total will come from im pact fee dollars set aside for r ecr eation in the Sebring area. The idea initially was intr oduced back in May by Sebring Mayor John Shoop, who serves on the Highlands County Recreation and Parks A dvisor y Council. Shoop told the council he had discovered the city had $9,230 in money set aside in county recreation impact fees for the curr ent scal y ear. If we dont use it, it will just go back to the county, he said at the time. Shoop later report ed an additional $7,000 was av ailable that also could be funneled into the projects. The proposed tness trail and disc golf course is slated to be built on land adjacent to the YMCA and soccer elds at the Max Long. The trail would con sist of a running course with as many as 20 tness stations. Under ter ms of the accord, the trail would be built b y the YMCA and jointly maintained by the YMCA and the city. The city reportedly will purchase materials for the trail, including such things as pressuretreated lumber, galva nized pipe, concrete and har dwar e for the tness stations as well as baskets for the proposed disc golf course.Sebring recreation projects move forward Courtesy photoAktion Club of Highlands County teamed up Saturday, Oct. 4, with members of the South Florida State College Circle K International to pull invasive and poisonous plants out of the Heartland for Horses & Handicapped pasture in Avon Park.

The initial computer glitches were report ed with glee by opponents of the healthcare plan. But, after those challenges w ere met, the program has proven to make a real dif ference in states that elected to expand Med icaid for their under-insured or uninsured. U nfor tunately, Florida was not one of those states. As our Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott sit determined not to accept billions of dollars in federal aid for our working poor and un employed, other states are reaping the ben ets. O n the O ct. 1 anniversary of the ACAs birth, the Department of Health and Hu man Services and the Kaiser Family Foundation released their ndings on the impact of Obamacar e as outlined by writer Jonathan Cohn. They concurred that: Medicaid eligibility levels, uninsured admis sions to hospitals had fallen by 30 percent.

But, according to the C ongr essional Budget Ofce, for ev ery dollar in new spending, there has been at least one dollar in new r ev enue or spend ing cuts. According to the Committee for a R esponsible F ederal Budget, the total bill for federal health care programs will be lower than predicted when the ACA became law. The popular cry by lawmakers in the most conservative states such as South Carolina and Florida, about the government going bankrupt because of Medicaid expansion, will prove to be nothing more than political hyperbole. ly, those already sick and the unemployed str uggle to nd insur ance or give up and take advantage of hospital emergency rooms for treatment, those in other states are se cure with their healthcare. And the billions of dollars that would have been headed our way, are being spent in other states. ers continue to stubbornly cling to a stance on M edicaid expansion that is being proven short-sighted and just plain wrong.An editorial from the Polk County Democrat.Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.com JOIN TT HE C OO N vV ER S aA TIO NLetters to the editor should be 250 words or less.

The man, whose identity was not released, was reportedly suering a medical issue as he was driving very slowly southbound on U.S. 27. He had almost caused several accidents but wouldnt stop when the rst deputy tried to pull him over.

Detectives have learned that our victim was currently the victim of a sexual abuse case with the same man as the offender Sneed was arrested on Aug. 27 and accused of sexual battery on the victim. He was initially held with no bond, but that was changed to $100,000 at which time he bonded out of jail. As a condition of bond, S need was as signed a public defender was to have no contact with the victim, was only allowed to travel within H ighlands and H ardee counties and was r equir ed to turn in all travel documents. Sneed appeared at a court arraignment on that charge on Sept. 29 and a pre-trial confer ence was set for Nov. 18. O ctober is Domestic Violence Awareness M onth and this case only spotlights the ser ious problem of dating and family violence. It is possible that our victim was murdered so that she could not testify against this guy s violence Be a voice against violence and domestic abuse and make a difference for a victim, Benton said in a press release. At least one neighbor reported that Abrams housemates said the woman was killed ex ecution-style when a man br oke into the house and opened r e while she was in a bathroom preparing to go to work. One of the housemates reportedly was home at the time and chased the shoot er as he ed, smashing the windshield of the getaway vehicle with a beer bottle HCSO got a call to the emergency dispatch center about a disturbance with gunshots at the Abrams home shor tly about 7:45 / a.m. H ays said deputies arrived on scene and found the womans body inside the two-story home. A bulletin was re leased that an armed and danger ous suspect had ed the scene in a bluish-gr een v ehicle with a broken windshield, likely headed nor th on U.S. 27 to ward Avon Park. As law enforcement re ceived additional information, specic addresses in and out of the county w er e targeted for surveillance. The F lor ida Highway Patrol located a possible vehicle in DeSoto County matching the descr iption. Troopers detained that vehicle and driver until it was deter mined b y detectives that this person and vehicle were not linked to the killing. HCSO Det. Sgt. B r ian Kramer went to a home in Avon Park the suspect was known to frequent and located a vehicle that matched the suspect car. De tectives and deputies surr ounded the house and the suspect came out and surr endered to law enforcement, Hays said in a press release. Yellow crime scene tape blocked the 200 block of Blue Moon Avenue much of the day Thursday A HCSO mobile command center took up a position in the middle of the r oad as deputies awaited a sear ch warrant before entering the house to gather evidence S earch warrants were also requested for the suspect vehicle and the home where the suspect was located. I t is important to follow procedure and not get in a hurry with a case like this to ensure a good identication and prosecution, said Benton. An unexpected surpr ise came when Ralph R osenber g, who bicycles on Blue Moon Avenue daily, spotted a spent shell casing on the edge of the r oad. H e picked up the brass casing and handed it to a sheriffs deputy who examined it and said it was from a 9-mm weapon. The deputy bagged the shell casing as evidence, indicating that might have been the same caliber as the murder weapon. Rosenberg said he bikes on that road dai ly and was condent the shell casing was not ther e a day earlier A neighbor living about a block to the east of the cr ime scene said he saw a car matching the descr iption of the suspect vehicle drive by his house befor e 8 / a.m. The neighbor, who identied himself only as R obert, said he didnt hear or see anything unusual until a bevy of sheriffs vehicles arrived on scene. A neighbor a block to the w est said he saw and hear d nothing unusual Thursday morning. He said he didn t know the victim but that they often exchanged friendly waves as she drove past his house The sher iff said anyone with information on this or any other domestic violence case should be sur e to call the HCSO C riminal Investigations Unit at 863-402-7250.

p www.newssun.comFriday, October 10, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A7 BY BRITTANY WHITTINGTON NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING An important night was at hand for the Lady Blue Streaks Tuesday night. After a slow night on Monday against Moore Haven, the Streaks knew it was crucial to pick up the pace if they wanted to grasp the rst place in their district. And they did just that, beating Lemon Bay 18-25, 25-20, 2515, 25-21 to lock up the top seed. We were a little slow the rst game, after recovering from a really slow game against Moore Haven Monday night. But we picked up the energy and got some momentum in the second game. We were neck and neck the entire time, but we nished strong and won the second, third, and fourth, said Sebring senior Caylin Webb. Now we are the No. 1 seed in our district. It felt so awesome. It was a really exciting win. We just have to keep working in order to win districts now. The Streaks will be looking to score their rst district title since 2003. They host the District 11-5A tournament starting Oct. 20. The Lady Streaks were in hot pursuit of district title last season, but came up just short to Lemon Bay. Sebring traveled up the road Thursday night to challenge county rival Avon Park. Pick up Sundays edition of the NewsSun for results. SPORTS Last Saturday night marked the beginning of what should be some of the best bass and crappie shing of the year. Overnight temperatures dipped down to 59 degrees locally, and the entire week was forecasted to have milder, overnight lows in the 60s. For many of us, weve been waiting for this change in air temperatures because it typically begins to cool the water temperatures from their highs in the mid-80s and low-90s to a more respectable, and perhaps more comfortable, water temperature for bass and crappie. As the days get shorter and the nights get longer, these cool overnight temperatures will have a dramatic impact on all game sh. Many will return from the deeper water, where theyve spent much of the summer months feeding voraciously in preparation for the upcoming spawn. Bass shermen often look forward to spring and the spawning season when the bass move shallow in search of areas to build their beds and lay their eggs. But here in Highlands County, that could be anywhere from December to May, and as many of you know, thats a long period of varying weather conditions when the shing is often good, but often frustrating. In the fall, the window of opportunity is much shorter. And unlike the spawning period when small buck bass will strike anything near their nest and the big females often suffer from lockjaw, everybody puts on the feedbag after a long, hot summer. Daytime highs will continue to be in the mid to upper 80s all week, but with longer nights in the 60s, waters will cool and shing should get better and better.

An important Southeastern Conference Eastern Division showdown is being overshadowed this week by another deluge of compelling SEC West games. The only ranked teams from the SEC East will meet on Saturday when No. 13 Georgia visits No. 23 Missouri in a game which could provide some clarity in the muddled East race. The game has been set for an early 11 a.m. CDT kickoff as if to serve as a warmup for offerings from the West the nations most powerful division. Georgia receiver Michael Bennett insists hes not insulted by the powerful West overshadowing the East in the regular season. He said the East will have its chance to shine in the SEC championship game. Bennett said he hopes the heavyweights in the West bludgeon each other before the Dec. 6 title game in Atlanta.

The Associated P r ess does not identify people who say they ar e victims of sexual assault. The univ ersity r eleased an 18-page incident report Wednesday after noon, but the major ity of it was redacted, with ofcials citing privacy laws. One of the few par ts that w ere viewable provided Har ris height, weight, hair color ey e color and date of birth. University of Florida spokeswoman Janine Sykes also outlined the steps for the school s student code of conduct review, which is required under a De partment of Education T itle IX feder al statute. Even if Harris faces no criminal charges, he could still face student code of conduct sanctions. M uschamp declined to answer several ques tions about the Harris case including when he found out about the incident, what he told the team and whether he thought Harris has any character aws. He said he felt hav ing a news conference was a little insensitive considering the cir cumstances but he expressed a need to move forward and manage your football team. He later added that its always tough seeing his players deal with adversity. It always hurts any time a young man goes through a tough situation, Muschamp said. I m not referring to that situation individually, but anytime you see our play ers hur t, you see a young man hurt, you spend a lot of time with him, its hard, its very hard. You get emotionally attached in all situations, abso lutely. H arr is might have been named the starter Monday, although Mus champ said Wednesday that str uggling four thyear junior Jeff Driskel would have played against the LSU Tigers (4-2, 0-2). Now, Driskel will start and highly touted freshman Will Grier will compete with Skyler Mornhinweg for the backup role. Driskel, who has started 19 games over the last three seasons, has completed 48 per cent of his passes in confer ence play for 447 yards, with four touch downs and six interceptions.

A10 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, October 10, 2014 www.newssun.com conditions will change as well. Since most cold fronts come down from the north, prevailing winds will generally be from the north and northeast. These will also help to cool the water and push bass shallower in search of food. Crappies, as well, will begin schooling up in large numbers, remaining in deeper water fol lowing bait sh and constantly feeding. Bass sher men will nd bass in areas they havent frequented in months, and they will be much mor e aggr essive, often striking anything that moves. Plastic worms, jigs and spinnerbaits work exceptionally well at this time of the y ear Crankbaits, shed in 6-10 feet of water, will also produce well, particularly on long points and quick drop-offs. Crappie shermen will nd huge schools of these sh roaming in water from 8-15 feet and once found, a limit of 25 can be taken pretty quickly. Most crappie shermen drift sh or troll for crappies at this time of the year with minnows or small crappie jigs. My favorite area to sh in October is Lake Istokpoga for crappies. I can usually nd slab crappies on the north end of the lake in 6 feet of water just west of Little Grassy Island. Because crappie schools may number in the hundreds, once you hit a school, be ready to cash in. My setup includes a couple of rods rigged with crap pie rigs two snelled, longshanked hooks with a sinker on the bottom, baited with minno ws. I ll set the r ods up as I drift and at the same time, Ill cast and work a small crappie jig. Once the action starts, Im quickly forced to work only one rod. Most of the crappies I catch in Lake Istokpoga are in the 10to 12-inch range, although last year I did catch a few monsters over 14 inches. When youre shing a double hook rig such as the one I use, its not uncommon to catch two of these slabs at the same time. Its also pretty easy to lose a good sh boat-side due to their paper mouths. Always have a small net handy when crappie shing, because you never know when that big one decides to bite, and when he does, if you try to ip him in the boat, his sheer weight will often allow the hook to pull through. Ive lost some pretty nice crappies by not us ing a net. D r ift shing can be a lot of fun since youre likely to catch just about anything. Most sh eat minnows and, as a result, Ill typically catch catsh, bluegills, shellcrackers and ev en bass in my dr ifts for crappie. B ut usually once youve hit a school of crappies, its one af ter another, and theyre often the same siz e Bass on the other hand can still be unpredictable at this time of the year. Although they instinctively move shallow as the water cools not all bass ev er do the same thing at the same time. Fall can be a great time to work that water behind you. Buck Perry, the Father of Structure Fishing used to say, For most shermen, if theyd just turn around and sh out away from shore, theyd catch more sh. Water depths in the 8to 10foot range often are more pro ductive than shallow water, par ticularly at the start of the fall shing season. M any bass mo ve in from deeper water sanctuaries and stage in offshore water, then making daily runs into the shallow for food. This is not uncommon, and even going into the pre-spawn ing time period around December and January, this 8to 10foot water depth can pr oduce well. Crankbaits can be highly effective when used more as a sear ch tool, and once the bass are located, a Carolina rig or Jig & Pig work best. The fall shing season is short compared to other times of the year, but its often the best, so get out there and try your luck!Don Norton is a professional tournament Courtesy photoCrappies will begin schooling up in large numbers, remaining in deeper water following bait sh and constantly feeding.

Though Hardee has only won two games, the Wildcats are 1-1 in games against teams that have also played Avon Park, losing to Fort Meade, 26-9, and beating Frostproof, 21-14. They also have beaten the Sebring Blue Streaks, 23-13. They are much bet ter than what their r ecor d shows, said head coach Wade Jackson. They are a solid, typical Hardee football team. Jackson said the Devils dont plan any major changes on of fense in terms of the scheme or play calling, though some injuries have forced a shift in some position assignments, the most notable being that J osh Jones will be moved to running back. We are not sure how long Moise Sat ine will be able to go, said J ackson. Jones wanted the opportunity and he has been running hard in practice. Well see how it goes. Jackson noted that the Devils will have to hold on to the ball as well as move it to have any chance. Defensively, Jackson said the Devils have to focus on wrapping up and making tackles. (The Wildcats) have a couple of play ers that if you go high on, y ou ar e going to have a rough night, said Jackson. Jackson and the coaching staff are pleased how the younger players have matured during the year, despite the fact the team is still look ing for its rst win. (Dar ius) Council continues to get better, said Jackson of his sophomor e quar terback. He is not quite to the point wher e he can always read the defense and make adjustments, but he is progressing every game. Our players remain positive and are work ing hard, Jackson added. We will go to Wauchula, play hard and see what happens. S tar t time is 7:30 / p .m. at Wildcat Stadium in Wauchula.

We made mistakes and we just didnt capitalize on our oppor tunities, said head coach LaV aar Scott. As a family, we came together and talked about the things we did wrong. We are getting our guys ready to handle the aspects of the game that they can control and let the rest fall where it may. The Streaks have been watching game lm intently to see what it is that they are doing and then see ing what the next opponent will offer for them. Tenor oc has had, to say the least, a less than satisfactory season so far. The T itans are 0-5 on the season while going 0-2 against teams in their district. As if the Streaks needed any more mo tivation to compete against T enor oc this week, it is homecoming week at Sebring H igh School. F ootball players who will skip the halftime break for the cer emonies will be Ladante Harris, Breon Jones, Jarvis Bridges, Hunter Livingston, S hawn S ucces, Bran don Rosenbaum, Gar ret Zeegers and Kolten H inkle All these players are vying to get a win on the eld and also to be crowned the homecoming king. The w eek of homecoming can always giv e the play ers and extra boost of energy and many are already feeling it. We are moving for ward from last week, said junior r unning back Toni Jenkins. We have been practicing hard and we have all been getting a good vibe because of home coming week. There isn t really any reason not to be hyped for our homecoming game .

The W est boasts four of the nations top seven teams in the Top 25. H aving those four teams come from only two states, Mississippi and Alabama, only makes the dr ama mor e difcult to ignore. The must-see SEC West showdowns this week include No. 2 Au burn at No. 3 Mississippi State and No. 3 Mississippi at No. 14 Texas A&M. Also N o. 7 Alabama plays at Arkansas. M eanwhile the SEC East race is up for grabs. Missouri (4-1, 1-0) is the divisions only team without a SEC loss. Florida, Geor gia and Kentucky are 2-1 in the SEC. T ennessee is 0-2 in the conference, but the Vols believe theyre still in the East race. Thats an advantage to playing in the SECs weaker di vision. I just kno w that we still have a good chance of winning the East, said Tennessee safety Brian Randolph. I think almost ev ery team on our side has a loss, so its not out of the question for us to make a comeback toward the end of the season. I t denitely gives us a little bit more motivation each day coming in. Asked to explain the po wer shift to the SEC West, Tennessee coach Butch Jones said I think some of it is cy clical. J ones said that doesnt mean the East is packed with pushovers. R eally, I believe the East is extremely competitive as well, Jones said. Its just the nature of the SEC. ... Every team is good. Every team is physical. Every team is well-coached, and every program has very good fan suppor t, so when you go on the road, every away game is a hostile environment. K entucky (4-1) is tr y ing to take advantage of the wide-open r ace in the East. It has back-toback conference wins over Vanderbilt and South Carolina and is moving closer to be coming bowl-eligible for the rst time since 2010. K entucky coach Mark Stoops said the Wild cats are part of a movement toward great par ity in the league. I ts a tough confer ence and theres not a heck of a lot of teams going backwar d, Stoops said. Everybody is trying to move forward like we are. We are trying to do everything we can to improve our program, and I think you see that from a lot of the teams in this league.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, October 10, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: I am an adult heterosexual male who has discovered that I like wearing nail polish. I feel it should not be a matter of gender, but of taste and fashion. I wore a reasonably bold color in public for the first time a week before last. It was a light, metallic blue that changes to green in the sunlight. I got a few raised eyebrows and a few compliments in my conservative, small town. I was told, however, to leave the color red to the ladies. I know some companies are already marketing nail color for men, and I hope nail decor for both genders will one day become mainstream. I want to help that process along. What do you think, Abby? SHOWIN MY TRUE COLORS IN TEXAS DEAR SHOWIN: Although over the last few years I have seen males wear nail polish, it was usually a very dark color and the wearer was a rock star or a Goth. Frankly, I think that for an adult heterosexual male to wear light blue nail polish in public in the great state of Texas shows he is not only a trendsetter, but also has a lot of guts. DEAR ABBY: Im a 38-year-old woman who divorced four years ago. Im educated, attractive and have a successful career. My 18-year-old son lives with me and attends a junior college. I am having a hard time finding romance because most of the men want to survive on my income, or are put off that I have a son at home. I recently met a guy who seems to be head over heels in love with me. He has had little education and abused drugs and alcohol for a long time, but he has changed now. He has three children, but because he is unemployed, hes exempt from paying alimony, and he is fine with the idea. Hed like to have them on weekends, but the mother wont allow it. Should I go ahead and date him? He doesnt seem to mind that I have a child, but my intuition tells me he may be another fortune hunter. LONELY LADY IN NETHERLANDS DEAR LONELY LADY: Listen to your intuition and end this relationship now unless you want to support this man in perpetuity. The longer youre involved, the harder it will be to end it, so dont procrastinate.More than the stars shine brightly in the state of Texas 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. Solution on B6PUZZLE CORNERJust put Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall in a room together and youll have a movie, a truism that The Judge does its damnedest to disprove. David Dobkins film doesnt leave a melodramatic stone unturned, adding to its courtroom drama a sentimental tsunami of story lines: a mothers funeral, a father-son reckoning, a fight with cancer, a dash of alcoholism, a custody battle, a mentally challenged younger brother, and a hint of possible incest, to boot. Objection! Badgering the moviegoer. But for a moment, the big-bud get sheen of The Judge and its contrived, kitchen-sink emotionality is forgotten. Downeys big-city, high-priced lawyer, Hank Palmer, helps his ailing father, Duvalls Judge Joseph Palmer, in an excrement-soiled bathroom, pulling him into the shower while they both struggle for an excuse to keep Hanks young daughter outside. Even with the scenes gratuitous realism, its the one natural moment in the otherwise schematic The Judge. As it is, the considerable appeal of seeing two fine actors as perfectly opposite each other like Duvall and Downey one a rigid old cowboy, the other a manic pinball is limited by the films ceaseless heart string-pulling. This is a movie that uses Bon Ivers mawkish Holocene the cheapest of ploys not once, but twice. Hank is a glib Chicago defense attorney (innocent people cant afford me) turns to his Indiana hometown for his mothers funeral and a reluctant reunion with his domineering father, from whom hes long been estranged. Despite being a community pillar, Judge Palmer is arrested for running over and killing a man he once put in jail. Hank defends him, along with a sheepish local lawyer (Dax Shepard) against a severe prosecutor (Billy Bob Thornton). The case is less the driver of the story than the frame for Hanks return to his roots (Vincent DOnofrio and Jeremy Strong play his brothers, Vera Farmiga his ex-girlfriend) and bonding with his father. Duvall (who perhaps ought to have had more scenes dishing out justice on the bench in a movie called The Judge) is in his wheelhouse, playing a tough-talking, joke-dishing old man, but one haunted by regret and humbled by encroaching old age. Downey, too, is in typical form, though hes never much tested to go beyond his easy, hyper-verbal charm. But his live-wire act remains a thing to behold. Where one actor reacts once, Downey reacts half-a-dozen times, alert to every word and gesture. Seemingly anxious that in todays cinema theres no place for a simple courtroom drama or a coming-home tale, The Judge fuses the two together. This is, after all, Downeys first drama since 2009s The Soloist; hes had Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes franchises to attend to. Dobkin (largely a director of broad comedies like Wedding Crashers) wont rest his constantly moving, always swooping camera. Large portions of the movie are over-lit by cinematographer Janusz Kaminski, who has shot some beautiful movies (Lincoln, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), but his penchant for flares and blown-out windows here gives the film an artificial flatness. If in eight years, Downeys dramatic output amounts to The Judge and The Soloist, we can only feel that something is being squandered. Instead, we get a perpetually watchable film in that lazy-afternoon-cable-movie kind of way. If The Judge proves anything, its that talented, likable actors like Downey, Duvall, DOnofrio and Farmiga can keep a mediocre movie humming.Movie ReviewCRITICS RATING Downey and Duvall battle in The Judge AP PHOTOSThis photo released by Warner Bros.

Friday, October 10, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 www.newssun.com RELIGION IN THE KITCHEN An older lady, who happened to be a very poor cook, gave a preacher and his family a homemade pie. The pie tasted so terrible that the preachers wife had no choice but to throw it in the garbage. The preacher wanted to thank the lady for the gift, but at the same time, he wanted to be truthful. After much thought, he sent the following note: Dear Mrs. Jones, Thank you for your kindness. I can assure you that pies such as you bake never last long around our house. The truth is sometimes a difcult thing for us to handle, and we often have just as much difculty administering it to others. No one would doubt that the Bible teaches us never to lie, but is there a wrong way to tell the truth? Yes! When telling Gods truth, we should never use the Bible as a club to beat someone over the head with what is right. We should always dispense His truth with loving-kindness. Paul gave the members of the church at Ephesus a very important instruction concerning the conveyance of Gods word. He told them in Ephesians 4:15 that they were to speak the truth, but they were to speak the truth in love. That is the only way we are to relate the truth of Gods word to others. Now, we are most certainly commanded to tell the truth. There is no exception to this rule. Lying will only get us in trouble, both presently and eternally (Revelation 21:8). But, when we tell the truth, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it. If we use the right way that Paul outlined to the Christians in Ephesus, the truth may be used to turn a soul away from sin and to the love of God. However, if we use the wrong way and speak the truth out of pride, arrogance, or selshness, then the truth will have been spoken, but a soul may have been lost. So, remember to speak the truth always, but always speak the truth in love. Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 33870. Find them on the internet at www. sebringcoc.com, or e-mail us at sebringparkway@ sebringcoc.com. Kevin PattersonKEVINS KOMMENTS Dont speak the truth incorrectlyWe recently moved one of our associates into a new position in the kitchen that involves a lot of baking production, and I must say this young lady has already impressed me with what she has been making. Baking is more like chemistry than cooking to me in that if you do not have your measurements right, you often end up with an undesirable outcome. Trust me, I know this from my own mistakes, so you need to make sure to read the recipe closely and get the correct measurements when you are baking. Adrianna Ruiz was born in Columbia and came to America as a young adult, speaking little English. She invested in some language software to help her learn English as fast as possible, and if you ask me I think she probably speaks English better that I do. Adriannas role in my kitchen now is to make all of the Limited Time Only specials that we feature each month. This month, we feature pumpkins, so she has had to bake every day and every day I am watching her production get better. I really enjoy seeing someone develop their craft the way Ive seen her do it. She is very modest when I compliment her on a job well done. I think she likes baking but wont admit it. Another associate told me that the reason she is such a good baker is because she is the mother of two small children Cecilia and Santiago so she has all the patience in the world. So true. So all this talk about baking has me ready to get you a simple bread recipe that is so easy to make. Just be sure that you use measuring tools to get accurate amounts of ingredients. Once you see the outcome of this recipe, you might start to wonder what you could top it with. Im thinking it looks like the perfect place to put some sauted tomatoes, onions and garlic. Cheers, Chef. Homemade bread 1 12 pound whole wheat our58 ounce honey13 ounce sea salt14 ounce active, dry bakers yeast 1 23 cup water 1 18 tsp olive/canola Oil (25/75 blend) Preparation method 1. Combine all ingredients EXCEPT our in a mixer and blend. Once blended, pass our to mixture and continue to mix using dough hook attachment for 16 minutes on speed one. 2. Let the dough rest on a oured sheet pan or large bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and proof in cooler over night. Once proofed, portion and roll into desired shape. 3. After forming loaf, brush with olive oil immediately prior to baking. Bake at 450 degrees F for 8-10 minutes. After rst minute in the oven, pop air bubbles so that dough may stay uniform for baking.Baking your own bread tricky, but rewarding Tim SpainCHEFS CORNER Tim Spain is System Executive Chef with Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center and Morrison Healthcare Food Service.

S NAPSHOTS LOCA L RE L IGION N EWS We continue our examination of the important question asked by the jailor in Acts 16:30, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? In the previous article we considered the importance of the words Sirs and what. Each question must be considered and answered in the context of where and when it is asked. MUST The English dictionary denes this word as to be bound or obliged to by an imper ative requirement. The Greek word dei as used in our question under consideration is dened as it is necessary (Vines Complete Expository Dictionary). Common sense tells us that we are discussing something that cannot be avoided or evaded. This same word dei is used in the following: Do not marvel that I said to you, You must be born again (John 3:7) and But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6). These things (born again, believe) are necessary, required, a must to bring something about. I It is amazing what this man understood. He realized his personal accountability to the authorities for the prisoners under his watch. This is why he was willing to kill himself if the prisoners had escaped. More importantly, he understood his personal responsibility regarding salvation. At this moment, his question was not regarding his family, fellow guards or countrymen but self. This is where it starts, but of course, does not end here. Consider Jesus answer to the question, Teacher, which is the great commandment in the law? The answer was to love God with total self and love your neighbor as your self. (Matthew 22:3440) We are not going to love our neighbor until we love, i.e. understand the value of self. This individual response/accountability goes all the way back to creation with Adam and Eve (Genesis 3) and declared through the prophets: The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself (Ezekiel 18:20). Observe the question, Men and brethren, what shall we do? and the answer in Acts 2:38 Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Did you note the plural question we and singular answer every one of you? The jailor had it right! DO Youth are taught earlier that this word is a verb and a verb is an action word. Vines gives us this information; poieo-to make; to do, i.e. to adopt a way of expressing by act the thoughts and feelings. Jesus made it very clear that mankind has a responsibility in Deitys plan of redemption: Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven (Matthew 7:21). Then Jesus goes on to explain that powerful truth in a simple illustration of the wise and foolish builders. The jailors understanding of action on the part of the individual is clearly evidenced by others: Good Teacher, what good things shall I do that I may have eternal life? (Matthew 19:16); Lord, what do You want me to do? (Acts 9:6) Inspiration declares: For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men (Titus 2:11) and But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace God, might taste death for everyone (Hebrews 2:9). Truly, the indescribable gift of grace! And having been perfected, He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him (Hebrews 5:9, emphasis added).
