The H ighlands County Sheriffs Ofce reports that Robert Kresge, one of several adults that day pr esent in the pool area of 4517 Garden Ave. in Sebring, heard a splash and turned to nd a 4-year-old child under water. He dove into the pool while anoth er adult called 911. Kresge pulled the child from the water, placed the child on the pool deck where the childs mother and another adult, Moni ca Berkett, started car diopulmonary resuscitation. Another neighbor a retired paramedic whose name was not reported, heard the commotion, jumped the fence and took over CPR. By the time para medics and Sheriffs deputies arriv ed, the child was alert and breathing on his own. He was then transported to Florida Hospital Heartland and then to All Childr en s Hospital in St. Petersburg, just in case.

Ebola does not spread thr ough air food or water, and with adher ence to public health measur es poses no signicant infection risk to the U.S. population. Another speaker at the confer ence was Medical Director of Infections and Disease L uis D uharte. Duharte said it usually takes between thr ee days and thr ee weeks before signs of Ebola start to show and that many symptoms headaches, sore throats, bodily pains and more were com mon of regular colds and common illnesses M uch of the confer ence focused on the staff s preparedness for Ebola in terms of wear ing protective gear and hospital wor kers using a buddy system to pr ev ent mistakes in these precautionary measures. Director of E mer gency Services Lori Ashworth said the hospital was fully pr epared in the case of any infectious disease. However, she emphasized the fact that E bola wasn t the only thing these measures were in place for. They are needed for any contagious or danger ous disease. W e have equipment here to ght many different diseases, not just E bola, she said. While there have been only two cases of Ebola diagnosed in the United States (and isolated others in countries like Spain and G er many), the bulk of the trouble is centered in Africa, most notably Liberia. Continuing on their path to raising money and helpful equipment for doctors there with Sebring-based chari ty Liberian Medical Relief Fund, Kevin and Natu S trathy of Sebring Plastic Surgery have not faltered as Ebola reached America. Through their ofce at 805 U.S. 27 S., the Strathys are still open to donations of medi cal supplies, protective equipment and disinfectant. Donations are also open at W aypoints Financial at 2478 U.S. 27 N. Since the News-Sun ran a story about their efforts in August, the Strathys have donated two 40-foot containers full of supplies to hos pitals in Monrovia, the Liber ian capital. Africa is still the hotbed for Ebola, Kevin said. We have to get rid of it there. Aggressive early treatment is the answ er . Above all, however, a statement from Ashford illustrates the reality of Ebola while it is danger ous many hospitals are already well equipped to ght it and other equally dangerous diseases. There are many conditions not report ed in the news that we tr eat the same (as E bola), Ashford said. We don t have these safety measures in place only because of Ebola. In a statement released Tuesday, ofcials of Highlands Regional Medical Center indicated that C enter for D isease Control and P r evention screen ing protocols have been posted and ar e in use with all patients there. In the event that a patient has potential symptoms and risk fac tors for Ebola, the patient will be placed in isolation, HRMC ofcials wr ote. We will wor k with local and state health departments and the CDC and follo w their guidance to pr otect our emplo y ees, physicians and patients. The release further indicated that HRMC has a dedicated isolation room and supplies of r ecommended per sonal pr otective equipment. M or eover, HRMC ofcials have distributed CDC E bola guidelines to all of their clinicians. Public Information Ofcer of the Highlands County Health D epar tment John Gountas referred all questions to the Joint Information Center. The JIC also indicated that the Florida Department of Health has put a system in place to pr ovide emergency readiness packages to requesting hospitals in an effort to supple ment existing supplies in the ev ent of a suspect case of E bola or other ser ious disease The packages are slated to be strategically stationed with each of sev en R egional Emergency Response Advisors for rapid delivery within three hours The packages r eportedly include personal pr otectiv e equipment (PPE), point of care testing equipment, disposable patient care supplies guidance on use of equipment as well as instructional videos on safely putting on and taking off the PP E. F lorida ofcials reportedly want to spend mor e than $7 million to help the state prepare for the possible outbr eak of E bola.Barry Foster contributed to this report. EBOLA FROM PAGE A A 1 between that day and 4:30 / p .m. the next day when Holder took the boy to the Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center emergency r oom. The HCSO r eports that the child was then own via Aeromed helicopter to Tampa General Hospital, where he died fr om his injur ies at 12:01 / a.m. J une 6. Holders convictions were related to bur glary and drug charges, not to violent crime or cr imes against childr en. (C onviction) does not in and of itself make that person a dangerous person, said Kristi Gray, communications director for DCFs 12-county Central Region. She added it depends on the type of cr ime and the persons interaction with children. The DCF website states that more than 25 percent of child pro tective investigations in 2013 inv olv ed a nonrelative caregiver. Gray said this is often a per son the parent has only kno wn for a shor t period of time, or people who hav e no r eal involvement with their o wn childr en.

She had known him since she was a y oung child and left her son in his care many times. That speaks to (how) it doesnt matter how well you know some body, Gray said. H older told deputies the bo y behaved, play ed, ate walked and napped normally on June 3. After a nap, the child appeared to have soiled himself. Holder said he took the child, who was wob bly, to the bathtub to clean him. During soaping and rinsing, the child fell backward, hit the back of his head on the bathtub and began to convulse Holder said. He told deputies he picked the child up and both he and his fami ly members drove the child to the hospital. A r epor t on June 4 from the Bartow Child Protection Team medical director stated that the child s brain injuries were as severe as injur ies fr om a vehicle wreck. Florida Department of Corrections records state that at the time of the childs death, Holder had been out of incarceration for two years and eight months. His most re cent term was for bur glary of an unoccupied dw elling on M ay 30, 2010. He was sentenced Aug. 19 of that year and served 14 months. He received other sentences on Feb. 28, 2006, serving two years for burglarizing an un occupied structure on M ar ch 11, 2004, and again on Oct. 28, 2008, serving 18 months for convictions of possessing and purchasing cocaine on Feb. 27, 2008. HOLD eE R FROM PAGE A A 1 BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER The Florida Department of Children and Families offers a checklist for par ents to ask themselves about their partner friend or child caretaker be fore leaving a child in their care. Anyone who can answer yes to these questions could have a child at risk. Does this person: Treat other women or men in his or her life with disrespect? Get angry when you spend time with your child? Get angry or impatient when your child cries or has a tantrum? Call your child bad names or put them down? Think its funny to scare your child? Make all the decisions for you and your child? Put you down, tell you youre a bad parent or say you shouldnt have your kids? Pretend when he or she hurts your child that you are to blame or that its no big deal? Tell you that our child is a nuisance or annoy ing? Scare or threaten your child using guns, knives or other weapons? Also, ask yourself how your friend, partner or child caretaker treats and interacts with other chil dren, such as nieces, nephews or friends chil dren. It could indicate how safe a person is, or isnt. How well do you know whos watching your child?

www.newssun.comFriday, October 17, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A5 Several months ago, before the arrival of our little guy, my wife and I went shopping for bath soaps and I bought cologne. S omething musky Something peppery. Something that would dr iv e my wife wild. I checked. I had her sniff it, and yep, I found the right one. Ive hardly worn a drop of it in the last three months because my left shoulder and clavicle no w belong to my bo y. Thats where he rests. Thats where his head goes while I pace him around the house as he slowly gets heavier, turning to dead weight as he slips into deeper sleep. Note I say deeper sleep. Hes fooled me occasional ly. When Ive tried to make the tr ansfer into the cr ib or right before that maneuver he twitches and coos. And I take another 20 laps through the living room and den trying to get him to sleep. All of that would not happen if he were snifng and sneezing out my cologne. So, Ive held off. That stuff isnt going anywhere. Its still in my bathroom. With any luck, Ill get to use it on a date or two with my wife before my boy nds it and starts experimenting with it as all boys do. In the meantime, Ive discov ered another cologne my wife absolutely lo v es: Milk Neck! Thats right. I kid you not. When I hug her and her nose goes into the same place my boy has drooled the night before, she just melts. Who knew? N o w baby formula is also expensive like cologne, but it has some adv antages: I t soaks easily into skin and doesnt wash away with sweat or a next-day shower. The distinct aroma marks you as a man of stability, a responsible family man. You can mix up a batch when you need it so it doesnt fer ment when not used. Believe me milk does not age w ell. It doubles as a food source for your hungry infant. What could be better? If I can gure out how to synthesize it, I could make a killing. Unless its something to do with the slobber component. Ill bet thats the secret. Figures. Out of the mouths of babes, comes a great scent.Phil Attinger can be reached at or 385-6155, ext. 541 and followed @PhilAttinger NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher Scott Dressel Editor VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Jameis Winston and Ray Rice may or may not have a lot in common. But one thing is certain. Their actions, alleged and otherwise, have forced National Football League brass, college administrators and coaches to turn the page on how they deal with violence especially toward women. If you dont follow sports, you may not be that familiar with the two names. Winston is the Heisman Trophy winning quarterback for Florida State University. That means he was voted the best college player in the nation last year. Rice was a running back for the NFL Balti more Ravens. B oth w ere accused of violence against women. Rice was caught on video and had no choice but to admit to punching his nowwife in a hotel elevator knocking her out after a night of partying together. Winston was accused of rape in an infa mous incident that brought to light serious shor tcomings with the FSU administr ations handling of the charges and a lack of urgen cy inside the Tallahassee Police Department. Winston has so far escaped char ges although a civil suit by the alleged victim is pending, and awaiting an upcoming disci plinary hearing to decide if he violated the univ ersity s code of conduct in connection with the alleged sexual assault in December 2012. He also was suspended for one game earlier this season after being videotaped on campus shouting a sexually explicit phrase. Rice has been suspended indenitely by the NFL. In a sense we owe Rice and Winston. If not for their actions both real and alleged colleges and professional sports might have never been exposed for their play-rst, paylater philosophy. A great example occurred last week. A year ago, the University of Floridas quick action to suspend its own quarterback, Tre on Harris, may not have happened. H arr is, a freshman, had just made a semisuccessful debut for the Gators in a win against Tennessee. He was then accused by a female student of assaulting her in a dorm during the early morning hours after the game. Nothing was proven, and the woman in volved in the matter withdrew her complaint. But what did happen was that UF of cials took immediate action. And, so did the G ainesville P olice Department and the University Police Department. That is a far different outcome than we experienced with Winston when po lice failed to investigate the allegations for months M ost likely, the Winston case was on the minds of University of Florida ofcials when the allegations were made against Harris. And, to their credit, they didnt hesitate to act. We believe in letting the legal system work. But, we applaud sports ofcials who at least have started, it seems, to have nally gotten the message. Athletes have no special privileges. There will be less pay to play while awaiting the outcome of criminal charges that some times take months to play out.An editorial from the Lake Wales News.Glen Nickerson President JOIN TT HE C OO N vV ERS aA TIONLetters to the editor should be 250 words or less.

On Wednesday morning we learned a second nurse was in fected by the virus in a Dallas hospital while taking car e of the Ebola patient from Africa who died Oct. 8. When the head of the Centers for Disease Control and Pre vention, Dr. Tom Frieden, went on T V, he admitted his government agency wasnt aggressive enough in managing and containing the spread of Ebola. W e couldve sent a more robust hospital infection control team and been mor e hands-on with the hospital from day one about exactly how this should be managed. Thanks for the newsash, Doc. This latest failure of the fed eral government is really incredible. Just how incompetent can it get? I r aq, Syria, ISIS and now Ebola. Isnt there anyone in Washington whos qualied to do anything r ight? The pr esident made fun of ISIS last year when he called them the JV team, but it turns out the real JV team is based in DC and hes the captain. Quarantines, restricting ights from West Africa I dont pretend to know the best way to keep the USA safe from Ebola. Thats supposed to be the CDCs mission. But I do know that the best way for the federal government to deal with this or any prob lem is to put qualied people in char ge of solving it. W eve known for six years that the president isnt qualied to be where hes at. We know Susan Rice isnt qualied to be his national security advisor. And now were nding out that Dr. Frieden of the CDC isnt qualied to take your tem perature. The CDC boasts that it s the nations health protection agency, working 24/7 to protect America from health and safety threats, both foreign and domestic. But when a guy with the worlds deadliest virus showed up for treatment at a Dallas hospital, what did the expert bureaucrats running the CDC do? Little more than send in a few advisers. Now we see the head of the CDC on TV giving us his shoul da, coulda, woulda speech. Too late Dr. Tom. You shoulda already given us your resignation speech. Y ou knew ho w dangerous Eb ola was. You knew we were going to bring infected people her e for tr eatment. When it happened, you and your agency were unprepared, inept and slow to respond. Dallas hospital personnel were ill-equipped, untrained and basically forced to learn how to properly and safely han dle an Ebola patient on their own. Late Wednesday afternoon, when President Obama appeared with his cabinet to speak about E bola, he said the CDC was going to aggressively monitor the deadly virus and would not r epeat the mistakes made in Dallas. He said the CDC would be setting up a medical SWAT team to handle new cases and itll make sure all local hospi tals receive proper training and equipment. H e r eassured us that the dan ger of any one of us contracting E bola is extr aordinarily low. So is the chance of a serious outbreak in the USA. And he said he has condence in the CDC and the healthcar e system to handle what the media are already calling The Ebola Crisis. Unfortunately, this president and the federal government in general doesnt have much cr edibility left on any thing. Let s hope hes right this time.Michael Reagan is the son of Presi dent Ronald Reagan. Visit his web sites at and www.mi Send comments to Follow @ reaganworld on T witter.

VIGIL FROM PAGE A1 BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING The mother of a child who died just nine days after birth has been charged with child neglect in that case. Charity Lynn Harriman, 31, of 936 Shamrock Drive in Sebring was arrested Wednesday and is being held in the Highlands County Jail in lieu of $200,000 bond. The case dates back to Feb. 2, when the Highlands County Sheriffs Of ce dispatch center received a 911 call at 2:37 a.m. about an unresponsive infant at 936 Shamrock Road in Sebring, near Little Lake Jackson. Deputies spoke to the parents, Charity Lynn Harriman, 31, and David Eugene Croom, 46, and learned the child, Skiler, had been born healthy, weighing 6 pounds, 5 ounces. However, according to arrest reports, the child had lost 1 pound and 1.05 ounces during his nine-day life. On Feb. 1, a Saturday, three mutual friends of hers and Crooms came over to visit at approximately 7 p.m., at which time Skiler was fed an ounce of milk. Harriman again tried to feed Skiler around midnight, but he did not want the bottle, reports said. She found him unresponsive more than two hours later. When deputies searched the house, they found drug paraphernalia and smoking devices in the master bedroom where Skiler slept near his parents. The items eldtested positive for cannabis. The three friends, unnamed in arrest reports, told deputies they saw Harriman smoking marijuana from a bowl on the back porch and drinking Crown Royal whiskey while Skiler was unattended in the bedroom, reports said.Mom charged in Feb. death of newborn 1JSINESSKEITH HATHAWAY'S Advertisejj,TjacLotuckS&e,th S c Your Business.1A Here!Highlands County 863-385-6155 or 863-465-2522rIRE RUsPolk County 863-533-4183 or 863-676-3467COOPERTIRES Fill & Grading Bushhogging Shell Drives & RoadsBFGoodrich Complete Site Preparation c SUN CIASSIFIEDS1109 W.

p www.newssun.comFriday, October 17, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A9 Most bass shermen have a secret spot a honey-hole, a place that only they know about where they always catch bass. I have them; in fact I have many, on many different bodies of water. Some of these spots Ive shared with partners over the years and sworn them to secrecy. Most have kept their promise, although I suspect a few have revisited the spots without me. And thats okay. Ive certainly learned a few spots from others that Ive kept between me and them. Most shermen wont share these secret spots. Most are found by accident, and once found become etched in the mind of the sherman as a result of the sh that can be caught consistently from the area. Like most bass shermen, I get asked all the time where I caught my sh. My typical answer is in the lake or on the east, west, south or north side of the lake. I seldom ever give the exact location away. But before you condemn me or other shermen like me, theres a reason behind this secrecy. Most of these socalled honey-holes are small, and at best may yield 3-5 bass on most trips. Recognizing that the sh are released, the assumption is that they will continue to use the area in the future. If I told a friend about the spot, he might tell his best friend, and his best friend might tell his buddy and on and on and on. Before you know it, everybodys shing your secret spot and the bass are quickly caught or run off. Years ago, when I lived in Ohio, I found a couple of real honeyholes on one of my favorite lakes, Berlin Reservoir. This was a large, deep lake that held a strong population of walleye, smallmouth and largemouth bass. I knew the lake well, having shed it hundreds of times in tournaments as well as just pleasure shing. Every year the state would draw-down the lake until it was only a fraction of its original size. One year, I went out to the lake after the draw-down with a camera in hand and took pictures of dozens of spots Id shed and done well. The pictures were quite revealing as most showed staircase drops of 1 and 2 feet, normally submerged humps hidden from view when the water was at its normal elevation and numerous areas with steep drop-offs in close proximity to the river channel. I spent hours walking the new shore-line, ghting off the bitter SPORTS FISHIN AROUNDDon Norton FRIDAY NIGHT PREVIEW BY DAN HOEHNE NEWS-SUN SPORTS EDITOR As Avon Park found out two weeks ago, Lake Placid will have its hands full when District 6-4A leading Clewiston comes for a visit tonight. Clewiston is a state power, head coach Jason Robinson said. They have the ability to play for a state title this year. Their 6-0 record is one thing, their average margin of victory being 27.5 points further demonstrates their dominance. The Tigers do most of their damage with a smash-mouth running game, with ve running backs having totaled more than 100 yards on the year, lead by Dominik Spains 602 yards and six touchdowns. Tyrone Washington is another threat out of the back eld, averaging 8 yards per carry and adding another four touchdowns. Clewiston can also take to the air, as quarterback Davis Witt has thrown for 705 yards and six touchdowns, while compiling a quarterback rating of 100.7. We are looking at this game as an opportunity to prove we are getting better, Robinson said. When you play games like this you have to look at it as opportunity to shock the world. No one expects us to challenge them so we have nothing to lose. Its a great opportunity so we will approach it that way. The Dragons are coming off their bye week, so the team is well rested and chomping at the bit for this big challenge.Big challenges face county football teamsGreen Dragons look to tame Tigers Eddie Diaz and the Lake Placid defense will have their hands full with the high-scoring Clewiston o ense.SEE FB | A11 Secret spots for bass SEE BASS | A12 BY DAN HOEHNE NEWS-SUN SPORTS EDITOR AVON PARK South Florida volleyball worked its way up the Suncoast Conference standings Tuesday night with a big, fourset win over visiting Hillsborough. The match was a bit of payback for a four-set loss in late September, and also moved them past the Lady Hawks into third place in the conference standings. The opening set started out sloppy, with Panther errors helping Hillsborough build on an early lead. But the tide began to turn as South Florida tightened it up. Down 20-13, the Lady Panthers started to dig their way back in, scoring 9 of the next 14 points. It was too late in that set, however, as they took a 25-22 loss, but the momentum had de nitely shifted. After the highying Hawks got on the board early in the second set, SFSC came roaring back and snared a 25-20 win to even the match up at a set apiece.

For those that have watched the Red Dev ils this year playing teams like F or t Meade, Hardee, Lakeland Christian, Clewiston and Frostproof, the courage and commitment of the players is bey ond r eproach. They have battled and they have endured, the only thing that is missing is a win. T onight, A von Park travels to play District 6-4A opponent, the LaBelle Cowboys. The Red Devils are currently 0-1 in the district while the Cow boys are 1-0 with a win o v er Lake Placid, but 1-5 on the season overall. This game tonight is special, as a win will virtually guarantee a tie for second place. Wins tonight and next week against Lake Placid will put the Red Devils in the playoffs. A loss tonight ends any chance of making the postseason. We have been talk ing about a threegame season said head coach Wade Jackson. And we are building for next year. This is something that can catapult us into the offseason and be very positive. Jackson noted that LaBelle does not do a whole lot offensive ly, but they do have a quar terback that is very slippery and athletic. Ther e is nothing fancy, said Jackson. They dont pass the ball a lot, they run the power, dive and trap pretty effectively, so that is what we have to stop. It is that plain and simple. If we can stop those things, we can stop them. Jackson indicated that LaBelle is not that strong or athletic on the defensive side of the eld, but what they lack in those areas they make up it hus tling to the ball. They play har d and we will have to go down there and nish blocks and do what w e ar e supposed to or it is going to be a long night for us. Another area that LaBelle is good at is creating penalties on the other team through psychologi cal warfare and instigation. LaB elle gets mouthy and will call you names, said Jackson. It has been like that for the 20 years I have been here. We have to watch what we say and what we do and be on top of our game as far as that goes. We have got to be quiet and play football. Avon Park and La Belle have played each other the last thr ee years with the Red Devils winning the rst two, both by the score of 21-14 and LaBelle won last year 3128. Though the postseason is in sight for the R ed D evils if they can win at LaBelle tonight and beat Lake P lacid next w eek, Jackson emphasized that they ar e focused solely on the C owboys and if they can execute and tackle they will be ne. One last quote from Orison Swett Marden, an author from the late 1800s early 1900s who wrote several books on how to be successful in life: Dont wait for ex traordinary opportunities. Seize common occasions and make them gr eat. Weak men wait for opportunities; strong men make them. G ame location is LaBelle High School with a star t time of 7 / p .m. James TaylorSebring looks to catch up in district raceSEBRING The Sebring Blue Streaks face a v er y tough opponent in Fridays home game as they take on the heavily touted Winter Haven Blue Devils. This will be an im portant district game as a victor y would giv e the Streaks a better chance to inch their way back up in the standings which they are currently in third place. Hopefully the Streaks will still be hyped a week af ter their electrifying win against T enoroc with a score of 44-8 to conclude the Streaks homecoming week. We played well [against Tenoroc], but we still made some mistakes and we went over it as a team be cause we know that w e hav e a lot riding on this upcoming game, said head coach LaVaar Scott. This will need to be a w ell-fought battle for the Streaks to come away with a win, though sho wing the grit and desire to win has never been a challenge for Sebring. The S tr eaks are 0-1 in district play so far this year with a 22-19 loss against Lake Region that left a bitter taste with the team. S o it is impor tant for the Streaks to bounce back in their second matchup against a district team in this battle with Winter Haven, which comes in with a 6-1 r ecor d on the year while also being ranked 27th in the state accor ding to The Streaks are go ing to need all of their play ers to step up and accept the tough challenge that awaits them. This ranges from the stable upperclassmen that have been solid all year, to the recent call ups from the Junior Varsity squad that in clude quarterback Brian Lane and running back R afael S mith, who both had great games with their limited varsity experience. W e know the importance of this game, it is understood b y all of the players and I believe we will be able to keep the intensity up for this game , added Scott. This matchup will be played at Firemens Field tonight, with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 / p .m.

W ith winter ahead of me I had plenty of time to organize and label the pictures, and come spring, once the ice came off the lake and the water had re sumed its normal elevation, I used the pictures to nd some gr eat shing spots areas that I might never hav e found without the dr aw-do wn and the pictures. And, more importantly, you guessed it I found sh in a number of the spots. W ithout the aid of a GPS, I mar ked the spots on my topo graphical map and felt extr emely condent when the rst tour nament of the year took place in early A pr il. I won the tournament with three smallmouth bass weighing between 3 and 5 pounds and two lar gemouths one taking big bass honors at just o v er 6 pounds. After the tournament, a guy with the local paper who wr ote a column asked me wher e I caught the sh. I was pretty proud of myself and I gave him the exact details on three different spots where Id caught a total of 25 bass. The one spot where Id caught the three smallmouth bass was just crawling with sh, but most were in the 2-pound range. There were so many smallies I actually caught two on a lure at the same time, twice. Every time Id catch a smallmouth, ve more would be chas ing it and my bait to the boat. This was a tr ue honey-hole. I ev en got out my map to sho w him the exact location. A few days later, the newspaper writer devoted his entire column to a big picture of me holding up my sh, along with pr ecise details on wher e I caught them. I t nev er occurred to me that other shermen read his column. Of course I don t have to nish the story. The following week end, after his column came out, I w ent back to sh some of my secret spots. B oats w ere lined up all around every place I told the outdoor writer about. I was shocked. I went from one place to the next only to nd shermen al ready in each of my honey holes I don t know if they found sh as I had, but I was forced to go out and try some new areas. W eeks later I shed the lake again and this time no-one was shing my spots. B ut after hours of casting and not catching anything, it was ob vious to me that the boat tr afc or the sher men ran off what was left of any sh in my honey holes I t was a hard lesson to learn and to this day, Im very careful sharing too much information with other shermen. I still ask other shermen where they caught their sh; I just don t very often believe them. And for the record, some spots can be hot today and never pro duce again. W eather conditions water temperature and time of the year all play a big part in where bass will decide to be on any given day. But these areas were text book spots. W ith the kno wledge Id gained from the drawdown, there was an obvious reason why the sh were there. So the next time you see me coming off the lake, or maybe you see other shermen and you ask where our sh were caught, be pre pared for an answer like in the lake . Just remind yourself, thats probably the answer youd give.Don Norton is a professionBASS FROM PAGE A A 9 win in the third set before Hillsborough stepped it up and was threatening to even it up again. But with the Hawks on the brink, leading 24-19, the Lady Pan thers dug their claws in. They scor ed the next ve points to even it at 24-24 and would soon nish off the match with a 27-25 win. It was an outstand ing performance by the team, head coach Kim Crawford said afterward. A team effor t it cer tainly was with Sydney Durham leading thr ee play ers in double gures in kills with 13. E lle B arnett and Jada Spano added 10 each, while Madison Bitton just missed double gures with nine. D ur ham also had six blocks, and Spano lled out her score sheet with 17 digs and four blocks It also shows the level of the competition with our digs, C r awford added. Nor mally youll see the Libero with a ton of digs, but w e had v e girls in double gures, which means the competition is really spreading the ball ar ound. Libero Darby Jones did lead the team with 22 digs, but along with Spanos 17, Bar nett had 15 and setter K elsey S anders had 17 as well. Sanders also set up the offense with 43 assists. S he had an amazing night, Crawford said. With the win, the Lady Panthers evened up their Suncoast record at 3-3 to sit in thir d place behind State College of Flor ida (5-1) and Polk (41), with S outh F lorida having given the Manatees their lone loss on the confer ence docket. They looked to add one more loss to Polks total Thursday night. That will pretty much determine things for us Craw ford said. They are a v er y good team and Ive watched a lot of lm of them.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, October 17, 2014 Solution on B8PUZZLE CORNERDEAR ABBY: My fiance, Derrick, and I have been engaged for almost a year. The whole time weve been together he has been overseas. While he has many of the characteristics I look for in a man, he isnt as downto-earth as Id like him to be. Hes now back in the U.S. for good, and we are living together. Derricks a great father to his children, a good provider, intelligent, handsome and we have a lot in common. I love his family. But for a few months now I have been rethinking my decision to marry him. I feel like I cant be myself around him without him judging me or making facial expressions. I have tried telling him how I feel, but I always end up hurting his feelings or he ends up pointing the finger at me. Hes the best person I have ever met, but Im not deeply in love with him. He doesnt bring out the best in me and I dont know what to do. How should I handle this situation without breaking our engagement? MS. ENGAGED IN FLORIDA DEAR MS. ENGAGED: You and Derrick might be able to communicate more effectively if you had premarital counseling. However, if it doesnt resolve your issues, do not marry him, regardless of how handsome he is or what a good provider you think he will be. To have a successful marriage, you will have to be yourself and you and Derrick should bring out the best in each other. With help, you may be able to save the relationship. But if counseling doesnt work, do both of you a favor and become Ms. DIS-engaged. For everything you need to know about wedding planning, order How to Have a Lovely Wedding.

Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby. com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Da de los Muertos or the Day of the Dead may seem like a somber celebration as the focal point of a childrens animated lm. However, the roots of the Mexican holiday that typically spans from Halloween through All Saints Day revolve around the essence of what brings families together. The Book of Life director Jorge R. Gutierrez (Nickelodeons El Tigre: The Adventures of Manny Rivera) explains in the press notes: Its more than a holiday; its a philosophy. The core belief behind The Day of the Dead is that as long as you remember those who came before you, and as long as you tell their stories, cook their dishes, and sing their songs theyre with you. They live inside your heart. Animation company Reel FX (Free Birds) has weaved a wonderful tale of enchantment in The Book of Life, which turns the macabre aspect of death and dying into a mythical, magical, kid-friendly world. The story is narrated by tour guide Mary Beth (Christina Applegate), who takes a busload of juvenile delinquents into the catacombs of a museum to relay a lesson on the Book of Life. The book tells the stories of every soul on the planet. At the center of the universe is Mexico, where families on the Day of the Dead remember their dearly departed with estas, parades and special tributes. In the small village of San Angel, lifetime friends Manolo (Diego Luna), Joaquin (Channing Tatum) and Maria (Zoe Saldana) are trying to carve their own paths in the world. Manolo comes from a long line of bullghters and is a natural in the ring, but his sensitive heart and musical soul wont allow him to commit the nal act of slaying a bull. Joaquin yearns to be as courageous as his fallen-soldier father at all costs. Maria is a modern maven who is constantly being pushed to traditional ways by her overbearing father, General Posada (Carlos Alazraqui). Unbeknownst to the children, they become the subjects of a love triangle with otherwordly consequences. La Muerte (Kate del Castillo), the ruler of the Land of the Remembered, and her unfaithful, estranged husband, Xibalba (a dastardly Ron Perlman), who oversees the Land of the Forgotten, wager on which boy can win the heart of Maria. La Muerte believes in the fundamental goodness of humans and bets on the noble Manolo. On the other side, deceitful Xibalba loves to toy with mortals and plays with Joaquins competitive streak by giving him an emerald medal that gives him everlasting life. Thus begins Manolos epic journey lled with gorgeous scenery through the Land of the Remembered, where souls whose families keep them in their minds are treated to a heavenly afterlife lled with epic estas every day and all-you-can-eat churros; the forsaken Land of the Forgotten, where souls who are not remembered spend perpetuity alone; and the Cave of Souls, where a goofy Candle Maker (Ice Cube) helps put the Book of Life into perspective. Produced by lmmaker Guillermo del Toro, The Book of Lifes meticulous, eye-popping visuals alone would be reason enough to upgrade to a 3-D seat. But once you hear the inspired renditions of Radioheads Creep and Biz Markies Just a Friend and the eclectic score from Oscar winner Gustavo Santaolalla (Brokeback Mountain, Babel), you will be hooked on this tonguein-cheek tale of redemption and romance. The back-and-forth between the story and the narration was a bit jarring at rst but became useful as a comedic tool during the darker parts of the plot. What comes to light in this lm is the sweet earnestness and devotion of protagonist Manolo, as when he tells Maria: I may not be the town hero, but I swear with all my heart that I will never stop loving you. If you have to choose one Halloween treat this season, this is the one to savor.Movie ReviewCRITICS RATING Book of Life weaves a tale of enchantment AP PHOTOSThis image released by Twentieth Century Fox shows the character Maria, voiced by Zoe Saldana in a scene from The Book of Life.

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, October 17, 2014 IN THE KITCHEN Its that time again to carve out a pumpkin with the family and display it on your front porch. I noticed a carving kit on our kitchen counter at home, so I guess I will be carving one, too. I am pretty basic when it comes to carving them, but through trial and er ror I have discovered that you need to draw out your design with a marker and make sure you draw it out a little higher than you think so when it is lit, the carving isnt too low and pointing down. As a chef, I think carving them is cool, but Im also thinking what can I do with what I take out of the pumpkin. I love to roast the seeds and eat them as a snack. They are also a source of protein, ber and potassium. I like roast them with a little Cajun seasoning and kosher salt and either snack on them or toss them into a salad or maybe even top a piece of sh or chicken with them. The recipe I have for you today is a cupcake recipe that I am sure with go over well at your Halloween party or even your Thanksgiving dinner. Now you just have to decide what you want to top them with and I suggest you use some cream cheese frosting and a cinnamon sugar sprinkle. You might even want to rough chop some of your roasted pumpkin seeds and fold them into your cupcake batter before baking so you have a nice little crunch to your cupcakes. I hope you make these cupcakes with your family this holiday season. Cheers, Chef.

S NAPSHOTS LOCA L RE L IGION N EWS LAKE PLACID Ruth Bowling explained Florida Hospital Shares International when she was the speaker for a Thursday, Oct. 9 meeting of the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club. Florida Hospital Shares International was started 20 years ago by an administrator from Florida Hospital to help forge alliances to heal children and bring hope to families with special medical needs. Its mission teams target patients and partners in Latin America and the Caribbean. Medical teams partner with local Rotary Clubs, hospitals and government leaders to perform cleft lip and palate operations for needy families, free of charge. Shares International also partners with local physicians and therapists to provide physical, occupational and speech therapy to Caribbean children who have been placed in orphanages. While short term medical and surgical trips do provide a valuable service, organizers believe a larger footprint can be left when Shares International acts as a catalyst to bring about a more sustained, on-going reaction in their host cities and states. Bowling said Shares International works hand-in-hand with the ministry of Health in Latin America to promote the creation of multi-disciplinary cleft teams that collaborate to evaluate, diagnose and plan the ideal treatment strategy so that each patient receives the best possible aesthetic and functional results. We used to leave equipment on location but when we came back it would have grown feet and walked away, she said. Now that we have partnered with Rotary we no longer have this problem.

He painted a sign advertising 20 of them and nailed it to a post on the edge of his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked down into the eyes of a little boy. Mister, the little boy said, I want to buy one of your puppies. Well, said the farmer as he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, These puppies come from good parents and cost a great deal of money. The little boy dropped his head for a moment. Then, reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer. Ive got 39 cents. Is that enough just to look at them? Sure, said the farmer as he let out a whistle. Here, Dolly! he called. Out from the doghouse and down the ramp came the mother dog followed by several tiny balls of fur. The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse. Slowly, another tiny ball of fur appeared, but this one was much smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then, in a rather awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up. I want that one, the little boy exclaimed, pointing to the runt. The farmer knelt down at the little boys side and said, Son, you dont want that puppy. He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs. With that, the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers. By doing so, he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg, attaching itself to a specially made shoe. Looking back up at the farmer, he said, You see, Sir, I dont run too well myself, and that little fellow will need someone like me who understands. We are in many ways like the little boy and the puppy. We are spiritually lame because of our sin. And, that sin separates us from a perfect God who knows no sin. However, that does not mean that He does not sympathize with us as we go through life trying to battle sin and its powerful temptation. In fact, God understands all too well because of Christ. Hebrews 4:14, 15 read, Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Let us all realize that Jesus understands the weaknesses of the esh because He, too, lived life as a man. Nevertheless, Jesus showed us how to overcome those struggles. When we, like He did, set our minds on things above and carry out only the Fathers will, sin is not an option and the temptation to sin will always be overcome just like Jesus did.Someone who understands Kevin PattersonKEVINS KOMMENTS Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 33870. Find them on the internet at www., or e-mail us at sebringparkway@ Questions are gener ally asked for specic information. And how one responds to the answer will determine the seriousness of the questioner! In our nal study of the jailors question, Sirs, what must I do to be saved (Acts 16:30), we will note the object of his question to be saved. First, his question was not dealing with threats on his life from the authorities for the prisoner had not escaped. Apparently he had heard enough of Paul and Silass message of the gospel and observed enough of their actions to realize his spiritual needs. We do not know how long these servants of the Lord had been in Philippi after the conversion of Lydia and her household and before their imprisonment. (Acts 16:23, 24) As observed before, the answer to a question is given from when and where the question is asked. The jailor did not believe on the Christ for he was told in answer to his question, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household (Acts 16:31). Why was he told this? Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins (John 8:24). Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12). The two gospel preachers spoke to him and all who were in his house the word of the Lord. Why? Jesus said, Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15); Cornelius was to send for Peter who will tell you words by which you and all your household will be saved (Acts 11:14); For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart (Hebrews 4:12); Therefore lay aside all lthiness and overow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves (James 1:21,22). Another step in the jailors journey of saving faith and salvation was And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes [wound-NASV] (Acts 16:33).This was an obvious act of repentance, i.e. change of mind and action toward these disciples of Christ and their message of mercy and grace. And immediately he and all his family were baptized (Acts 16:33). Their response to the gospel message was the same as the 3,000 on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2) where the worldwide plan of salvation was declared. Did you note the time frame of immediately? This event began at midnight and was concluded by morning. (Acts 16:25, 35,36) The urgency of the matter is clearly stated in response to the same question asked in Acts 2:37, Repent and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). We learn in verse 41 that those believers who repented were baptized the same day. As in physical birth, when it is time for spir itual birth, delay brings forth some serious consequences. The account of the new birth of the jailor and his household ends with this beautiful picture, Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household (Acts 16:34). They were now in Christ, in His spiritual body, the church. For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ (Galatians 3:26,27). It is very evident that this man was serious about his question, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
