The instructional, described as a skills-based training program, is designed to prevent intoxication, underage drinking and drunk driving. The program is targeted for employees at any establishment where alcohol is sold, served or consumed. That includes commercial establishments, as well as for volunteers or others who may be serving at a charitable function where alcoholic beverages are given out.TIPS: Its not just to insure promptness anymore ShutterstockThe TIPS program helps train servers on when and how to cut o somebody who has had too much to drink. BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING The City of Sebring has received yet another inquiry about the purchase of Harder Hall. This one is from the Michiganbased Red Leaf Development LLC.

Telesco, who started up a youth ministry called STR8UP in Lake Placid with his wife, has seen this problem in action rsthand. STR8UP focuses on a mix of athletics, academics and spiritual growth, and part of the deal is that students show the adults their grades. Several athletes, Telesco discovered, are still playing sports even with GPAs much lower than the 2.0 standard. Before the school board on Tuesday night, Telesco outlined his case. We all serve the same passion for education, Telesco said. But there is a loophole running rampant in this county and the state. A kid isnt academically invalid (for playing sports) until January. Many of them are still playing anyway. Telescos explanation of the loophole is that after the rst nine weeks, the Youth minister calls for tighter restrictions on footballMourning the loss of a blessing for all of us Katara Simmons/News-SunBalloons are released to heaven Wednesday evening to celebrate the life of Mercedes Blair, a 4-year-old girl who was beaten to death last week, allegedly by her mothers boyfriend, Ivan James Sanders.

Actually, the signs will go up Saturday. Otherwise, it will be business as usual, said John Shoop, who is slated to stay on as the president of the Highlands County market. The merger is some what ahead of schedule. Originally, it was to hav e taken place on Oct. 31 with the nal accord to take effect pending regulatory and shareholder appr o val. There were a number of deadlines that w er e set at Oct. 25, so we moved ahead rather than ask for an extension, Shoop said. The agr eement was signed and announced back in M ay For the past ve months, work on the consolidation has continued, with a number of HIB oper ations moving to Fort Pier ce We moved some of the employees around a bit, but actually the staff isnt changing, Shoop said. In fact, we opened up three lending positions, one commercial and two residential. Shoop said the merger wont change much at the bank. Its still the same concept that we have been op erating under, but w e will be adding some mor e products as we go along, he said. For instance, this coming March, cus tomers in the bank will get new anytime car ds that will be operable at any of the chain s 32 locations. Highlands Independent Bank was originally organized as a state char ter ed independent bank and opened its doors on N ov. 1, 1985. In 1996, HIB opened a second ofce in Avon Park.

p www.newssun.comFriday, October 24, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A3 Mercedes died Oct. 17 from severe injuries sustained in a beating, allegedly delivered by her mothers boyfriend, Ivan James Sanders. Sanders has since been arrested for murder. Candles were placed in a line behind the makeshift stage at Hill-Gustat Middle Schools bus loop at 6 p.m. For 45 minutes, the crowd listened in rapt silence as those closest to the tragedy spoke about Mercedes. That child brought sunshine to our lives, said Tim Hall, the ance of Mercedes paternal grandmother, Carolina Tucciarone. Patricia Baker of Sebring, a friend of the family, recounted some of her own favorite memories of Mercedes, whom she said was a happy child and was always laughing. Im sure shed be laughing if she was here today, Baker said. Just the sight of her smile, I could see it today. Baker went on to say Carolina loved Mercedes like a daughter and was always holding onto her. If I could have done something to make it better, I would have, her uncle Anthony Blair said. I wanted to say (to her killer) If youre mad, take it out on me, man. Not a little kid. Blair went on to say that Mercedes was a great little girl and that she never had a bad word to say about anyone. Things happen in life that you cant explain, Blair said. You have to learn something and then you go on. Several songs were performed by Sebring residents Cammie Lester and Sydney Hornick. Near the end of the ceremony, balloons were passed out some colored blue for Mercedes favorite color and some white for innocence, according to Hall. Then a hot air balloon was lit, which represented the soul of Mercedes, he said, and as he and Tucciarone let it y, the crowd let go of their balloons and let them all soar into the evening sky. Tucciarone took the stage at the end of the ceremony with an animatronic talking teddy bear that shed bought for Mercedes when she was three months old in the hospital. She allowed the bear to speak, which recited a prayer for Mercedes. Mercedes was a blessing for all of us, Tucciarone said to close the ceremony. A Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ justiceformercedes has been set up about the case. at 863-385-6155, Ext. by Sebring Assistant City Administrator Bob Hoffman. We sent them a standard contract, which they then revised and sent back to us, said Sebring City Administrator Scott Noethlich. I now have sent that to our attorney, Bob Swaine, for his review. Red Leaf President Robert Lubin indicated that speaking much about the property at this point would be premature, but said he had been aware of the property for some time. We have known about it for several years and, in fact, theres one guy Ive worked with who tried to make a go of this property four or ve years ago but it didnt work out, he said. Lubin shared that he has been aware of Sebring itself for much longer, saying that a college friend of his from Tampa had always talked about Sebring and the Races here while the two were in law school at the University of Miami. There have been a series of suitors and developers who have expressed interest and even inked agreements with owners since the hotel shut down in 1987. Projects have ranged from historic restoration to a four-star hotel to adult congregate living facilities. Sales of stock in the project by one developer spurred an investigation by the Securities Exchange Commission. Over the course of time, much of the hotels property has been shaved off and sold, such as the golf course and residential lots. In fact, part of the hotel itself was demolished under one of the principals. Now, the abandoned structure sits on a 12acre lot, with the city trying various means to sell off the hotel and recoup part of its investment. We constantly get offers, Noethlich said. This is the rst one in a while that has come in the form of a contract. The latest agreement is slated to come before the council sometime next month.

LOSS FROM PAGE A1bells and whistles go off, and (we) say OK, little Johnny needs help now. However, by Florida law, a student has to be given until January to improve his or her grades. After the rst nine weeks, theres only one football game left in the season, Telesco said. So hes done playing football and he doesnt care. Then he has until January to practice for other sports like baseball and basketball. Telescos main point was that sports are a privilege, and the focus for kids should be education rst. Kids always feel better when they earn something, he said, calling the loophole a disservice to students. With todays educational curriculum, everything is on a building block, he said. If a student falls behind, come week ve, the kid is in class and presumably everything being taught is foreign to him because he shut off three or four weeks ago. I hope the students (with lower grades) are getting tutoring and mediation, District 1 Chairperson Ronnie Jackson said in response to Telescos presentation. The school board vowed to look into the matter and see what their options were to deal with it.

Servers will learn what ar e kno wn as tell signs for overconsumption as well as procedures on how to know when patrons have had enough and stop ser ving them without causing a confrontation. We dont want businesses to lose customers, M oor e said. There also will be instructionals on how to check dr iv ers licenses and other forms of identication to make cer tain they are valid. The goal is to make sure that those who are serving alcohol are thoroughly trained, he said. One of the benets may come in the form of insurance rates. Moore indicated there currently are some companies giving a discount if employ ees are certied and tr ained. O ther benets might include such things as the minimization of property damage that might be caused b y intoxicated patrons and protection of establishments in r educing penalties for alcohol violations.

TIPS FROM PAGE A A 1EDWARD YOUNGMANEdward Alan Youngman, a longtime resident of Lake Placid born March 22, 1956, passed away on Oct. 16, 2014 af ter a battle with cancer. Ed was preceded in death by his moth er, Alma Ramelle Youngman; his father, Alan Edward Y oungman; and his grand parents. He leaves behind his children, Amber Y oungman Willis (Kenny Willis), Adam Youngman, and, Kortney Diesel. He also leaves behind four grandchil dren, Keith Youngman, 12, Megan Wil lis, 8, Payton Willis, 3, and one soon to be born to Adam and Brittany He also leaves a brother, Frank Youngman; two sisters, Faith Hargis and Roxann Kis er; and numerous nieces and nephews, cousins and other family Ed had been living in California for most of the last 35 years. He has an extended family there that includes peo ple who touched his life in many differ ent ways, through his different passions. He enjoyed riding his Harley was a member of the El Cajon Harley Owners Group, and recently became a road cap tain. Ed also collected and made custom knives of all kinds under the brand Circle Y Knives. In addition, he was a lifelong NASCAR fan and collector; he collected coins, and also loved Corvettes. A graveside service was held at the Venus Methodist Cemetery in Venus on Oct. 23, 2014 at 10 / a.m. The service was an Baptist Church of Brighton. His family made to Toys for Tots, a program that he supported for many years in California.Service Commission Chairman Art Graham, Harris announced his intent to abandon the system on Wednesday. I think in the long run this is the best course of action for all involved, Harris said. Harris contend ed that the action was necessar y since the utility currently cannot pay its cost of operation. He also cited actions by a couple of state go v ernmental regulators, including the Florida Department of Environmental P r otection and the Southwest Florida Water Management District, which resulted in additional costs The DEP mandated sev eral actions and impr o vements by the utility including the replacement of a second back-up w ell. The issue betw een Country Club Utilities and the Southwest F lor ida Water Management District has been dr agging on for better than a decade. The system has been under scrutiny by the district over alleged re peated violations on its water use per mit. I n fact, the system has been operating under a SWFWMD Consent Decree. This past J une the District imposed a penalty of $48,411.60 on CCU with an additional $2,000 in costs for violating usage r estr ictions. A revised consent or der r equired an initial payment of $14,102.90 in penalties and costs to the management district. H arr is has responded that he has no authority to mandate his customers use less water. The bottom line is a lack of funds Har ris pointed out that the utility s r ates have not been increased in 30 years, adding that the system does not qualify for a hike under PSC r ules and statutes Harris now has called upon his fellow Highlands County commissioners to le the appr opriate action in Circuit Court seeking a receiver to oper ate the system so there will be no interr uption of service. He also asked the court to establish a reasonable rate so that outstanding en cumbrances on Country Club Utilities could be paid. O ne possibility is that the City of Sebring could be named as tr ustee of the system. That would mean the municipality would then be r esponsible for the operation and maintenance of the facility and could then institute the r ates no w paid by those outside the city. The Country Club Utilitys abandonment process reportedly was led under section 367.165 Florida Stat utes and is expected to take up to 65 days to complete As owner of the system, Harris said he personally has inv ested a signicant amount of money to comply with DEP mandates, seek compliance with permit requirements if SWFWMD and to pe tition the PSC for rate incr eases However, these statutory schemes have, in this case made compliance impossible and fur ther attempts futile , Harris wrote in his letter to the PSC. HARRIS FROM PAGE A A 1 OBITUARIES BY LARR YY GRIFFIN STAFF WRITER SEBRING An attempt to pull over an A v on Park man for speeding Monday night led to charges of drug trafcking, batter ing a law enforcement animal, eeing law enforcement and more. The incident began when the deputy noticed a r ed Chevrolet B laz er traveling at 44 mph in a 35 mph zone. The Blazer then made a wide right turn onto Hart Street without signaling, which affected multiple cars waiting to tur n. The deputy activated his siren and pur sued the Blazer, which slo w ed down, but then drove over two paved driveways and stopped there. The deputy saw a man, later identied as Marcus Wyche, 27, ee ing on foot. W ith the assistance of a K-9 and a second deputy, Wyche was tracked to the Avon Park Executive Airport, and was reported to have also cut through Classic Caladiums at some point in the chase, according to an arrest report. The deputies located him and he report edly ignored calls to surr ender even when they thr eatened to sic K-9 Ozzie on him. So Ozzie was dispatched.

www.newssun.comFriday, October 24, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Y OO UR VIEWS In 1990, as forecasts warned that Flor idas spiraling population threat ened 3 million acres of critical envi ronmental lands, Gov. Bob Martinez l a unched Preservation 2000. Nearly a decade later, it morphed into Florida Forever, an act signed into law by Gov. Jeb Bush. These programs set up state trust funds to buy and preserve sensitive for ests, wetlands and shorelines. The aim was to pr otect dr inking water supplies, improve water quality, preserve wildlife habitat and fund management of state parks and recreation lands. Through Florida Forever alone, approximate ly $300 million was set aside annual ly from taxes imposed on real estate tr ansactions This was supplemented by $100 million from another designat ed trust fund. The progr ams worked. In all, the state has purchased 2.5 mil lion acres since the early 1990s. The $2.89 billion spent by F lorida Forever in 15 years was used for 818 archaeo logical sites, 696,240 acres of ecologi cal greenways, nearly 1.2 million acres of habitat conser v ation areas, more than 1 million acres of oodplains and shoreline, 305,590 acres of wetlands and 351,180 acres of forest. Enough? Hardly. The population boom hasnt stopped. The development pressure will not abate. Florida will soon become the third largest state, with roughly 19 mil lion people. Twenty years from now, that gur e is expected to hit 26 million. Amendment 1 on the N ovember bal lot the Florida Water and Land Con servation Initiative would ensure funding for envir onmentally signicant land acquisition for the next 20 y ears b y using 33 percent of annual net revenues raised through documentary taxes the fees charged on real estate transactions. That revenue source has long been used for conservation. But not recently. When the Great Recession forced budget cuts, money from land preser vation trust funds were diverted for oth er uses, primarily road construction. In the past four y ears only $29 million has been spent on Florida Forever projects. Not nearly enough. The passage of Amendment 1 would ensure an appropriate stream of fund ing for the next two decades somewhere in the range of $19 billion, ac cording to estimates. It would prevent tr ust fund r aids by the Legislature based on expediency something re cent history suggests is necessary. Most important is the long-term commitment to conservation. In order to pass, the measure will need approv al of 60 percent of voters. We believe the suppor t is ther e. Conservation is not a luxury. Clean water, a healthy wildlife population, public access to waterways, open land and the Everglades is key to Flori das natural appeal. As our population gro ws, so should our commitment to a healthy environment.An editorial from The Charlotte Sun.Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.com I am the rst to acknowledge that our missteps have caused unintended disruption for some students who attended Azure College. These disr uptions hav e been widely reported in the community. What has not been conveyed is the efforts we have made to correct our mistakes. I would like to report to the community on the steps we have made to ensure that Azure Col lege is a resource for the community in the future We have worked with the Commission for Independent Education (CIE), the r egulator y arm of the Florida Department of Education, to address all student and consumer complaints that have been r aised. CIE has conducted onsite visits (both announced and unannounced) and concluded that w e ar e in compliance with Florida laws and rules and informed us as such Oct. 6, 2014. Likewise, our accreditor, the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES), has also r eview ed the actions taken to address the r ecent pr oblems, and informed us as of Aug. 1 that they hav e continued our accreditation through February 2016. I personally contacted the ofce of the President at the State College to of fer any assistance needed for those students who chose to tr ansfer We continue to offer quality classes and our passage r ate for students taking their na tional nursing boards as of the end of S eptember for our Licensed Practical Nursing Program at S ebr ing is 80 percent (12 of 15) meeting the states requirements. As for the Registered Nursing Program, the Sebring campus has achieved a 100 per cent passing r ate for the NCSBN NCLEX-RN examination for the 2014 reporting year. Azure College is committed to providing students with an opportunity in Sebring to complete a quality education. Likewise, we are committed to improving our ser vice and service delivery. W e apologiz e to those we have not served as well as we would like, but want all to know that we are working with all our might to correct our mis takes and contribute to this community I f you have any concern or question, please feel free to reach out to me by email Jhonson@azure. edu.Jhonson Napoleon is Presi dent/CEO of Azure College. Guest columns are the opin ion of the writer, not necessar ily those of the News-Sun staff.Azure improving service GUEST COLUMNJhonson Napoleon TT im e for prayerAbout a year ago, my wife and I moved to Avon Park. I just have to say, the atmosphere of this community is so excellent. Our experiences with the neighbors and people hav e just been moving. Most people are polite and courteous. I really feel the climate and atmosphere of a to wn ar e a testimony of the spiritual climate of this community. It is not hard to gure out that there is a disciplined and fer v ent prayer movement going on here. In a time when our society is driving out any and all expressions relating to Christianity, there remains a few that keep ghting. And prayer is what changes cir cumstances I really feel this community has the fervent people to star t a pr ayer movement much like that of Azusa Street revival in Los Angeles. If a neutr al meeting place could be found that would deter denominational prejudice, it could hav e a po werful affect on this region. People, hard times are coming. It is time for people to cry out to our creator for help. There is such po w er in people laying down their differences, coming together and ghting for our liv es Avon Park can make a difference in this world. It just takes willing hearts to do it. And someone to put action to the dr eam. MM ARK SS E cC RES TAvon ParkVote for truthI love my country. America is The Beautiful, a true Republic that r epr esents the people who elected them.

EE THEL VAN RR YS WYKSebringA yes vote for conservationHe and I had a quite vicarious relationship. Id seen him only in lms and r ead of him in stor ies, so my idea of him was vague. One day, he came. And though she had no fear of him, he grabbed her by the wrist and took her away from us. She put up a ght, but nonetheless there was no light and gone she was forever, or so I thought. We all were struck in grief and I was indeed angry with him. I am sure many others felt the same. I could not see why, or for that matter how, someone could just be taken. I perceived it as an ab duction, while in actuality it was no more than par t of life The idea of loss of such was foreign. I was mentally fatigued because of the thought that I will nev er set ey es on such beauty again, nor will I encounter such a brave soul. I could not wr ap my mind ar ound the concept that she was no longer physically her e with us for no one in my life had ever left. It was not until after her vigil that I realized that maybe she was not totally gone and per haps he took her with r eason, not just to be selsh. A t that moment, I began, not to think of the bad, r ather of the good. I began to slo wly but surely reminisce about who she was and what she did; her virtues and admirable values. Kay tlyn Cooper will live on for ev er in our memories and without a doubt many of us will tr y to liv e in her footsteps. Those who did not kno w her w ere deprived of a real treasure. Kaytlyn touched the liv es of many of us in the most unusual ways She had this v er y interesting way of making you get your priorities straight and realizing what was important. O ne of my fondest memor ies was back in February at my rst track meet. I was terribly nervous. When I told her I was ofcially signed up to race, her ey es took up half of her face Thrilled, she gave me a hug and whispered, You go, my girl! From start to nish she ran with me, scr eaming and cheering along with two other dear fr iends in the gr ass on the inside of the tr ack. She didnt care how ridiculous she probably looked or how absorbed her advice was. S he was so sincer e about things, yet so brutally honest. But her honesty was never with malice. It was because she thought you could be better. At this age, most of us tend to be full of ambiguity, narcissism and ignorant habits. Kaytlyn looked over those agonizing traits. She saw the beauty in things and was on a mission to render that from everything. Our conversations were always very en lightening, and beyond doubt gav e me r eassurance that there is hope for our futur e She was light at the end of a long dark tunnel, hopeful and resilient in each of her ways Alas w e all indeed have a purpose and with only an unknown amount of time to fulll that. I know I say it often, and I am going to say it again: We wr ite our book, and it is something w e ought to make good, otherwise no one will read it and remember it. Kaytlyn Cooper wrote a book. It wasnt very long, but it was very real. Her book was full of ways a per son could be their best. S he wr ote it so that we could see that aws can become perfections and humanity should come before hubris, but I say, most notably, she told us how to be the moon in a high tide.Gauri Persad is a Sebring High School student.

p A8 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, October 24, 2014 www.newssun.com Sunday morning, Oct. 19, was a crisp, calm introduction to what turned out to be a great tournament for the Lake Placid Team Trail. There were 21 boats entered in the event, the highest number so far this season, and plenty of really nice bass were brought to the weigh-in. Ken Karol, Dick Morgan, Norman Lee and John Huber did a great job assisting boaters in launching their rigs and parking. At the weigh-in, Norman Lee had a great work-out, lifting bag after bag of fat, heavy bass, struggling at times to shake the excess water out of the laundry basket prior to certifying the weight. And there were plenty of heavy baskets! No strangers to catching big sh, the team of Paul Converse and Rob Freshour won the event with ve bass weighing in at 27.98 pounds an average of 5 pounds per sh. The pair won the jackpot of $660, and after two events, they took over rst place in the Lake Place Team Trail 2014-2015 standings, knocking out Sommereld and Saleeba, who won the rst tournament last month on Lake Okeechobee. Second place honors went to the team of Andy Markham and Cody Barr with ve sh weighing in at 25.22 pounds, earning them $400. The team of Blaze Napier and Mikey Balz won third place with ve bass weighing in at 20.13 pounds and the big bass of the day at 8.12 pounds. Third-place payout was $260 and the Big Bass jackpot was $190. Fourth place went to the team of John Huber and Ken Karoll with ve sh weighing 18.81 pounds. There were 101 bass caught and weighed. Three small sh died but 98 were released alive 100 yards out from the boat ramp and 19 out of 21 teams caught their limit of ve bass. I shed the event with my partner Joe Kozic of Sebring. Joe, who was not in the best of shape for shing the event due to recent surgery on his left hand and wrist, made a valiant effort, but had a dif cult time casting with one hand in bandages. I too had a small problem working the trolling motor with a broken toe, although my poor results were more likely due to our combined lack of knowledge of Lake Placid. Unlike everyone else shing the tournament, Joe and I took off rst thing in the morning to sh the north end of the lake. We were surprised that no other boat started in that area and it really should have told us something. We had three sh in the livewell in the rst hour, with the biggest pushing two pounds, but from there, it only got worse. Moving to the west shoreline, we shed the grass, inside and out, picking up a couple more small sh and nally moving to the SPORTS FISHIN AROUNDDon NortonLake Placid Team TrailSEE FISH | A10 BY DAN HOEHNE NEWS-SUN SPORTS EDITOR It doesnt get appreciably easier for the young Lake Placid squad tonight, as the Bishop Verot Vikings come to town. Though, at the least, the team spirit and mood should be lifted by this Homecoming week. Homecoming is a special week. Its full of fun stuff going on and can also be a distraction when preparing for the game, head coach Jason Robinson said. Our guys have done a good job of separating the two and getting ready for the game. And there is some good that goes along with the bad, as far as facing the Vikings. Though they have a relatively middling 4-3 record on the season, the fact that they are both a school from a well-populated area, FRIDAY NIGHT PREVIEWDragons, Streaks get ready to rollDragons welcome Vikings for Homecoming Freshman QB Tae Williams has been thrown into the re, but has responded well. Now the Dragons just have to give him protection and room to move.SEE FB | A10 BY DAN HOEHNE NEWS-SUN SPORTS EDITOR LAKE PLACID It was a relatively uninspired night, that netted quite inspiring results Tuesday as both the Lake Placid and Avon Park volleyball squads secured their spots in the District 9-4A tournament title game. The Lady Dragons pulled off a sweep over the Mulberry Panthers, though the play was sloppy at times and the sets wound up closer than they should have. We de nitely were not on our A game, but that is usually how we play a team like that, unfortunately, head coach Charlotte Bauder said. Our energy wasnt up. Hopefully they were saving it for Avon Park. Mulberry kept things close in the opening set, staying within 13-12. But a 9-2 run, highlighted by a Mary Grace Bates ace and a Shannon Huber kill from the Lady Dragons, Devils reach title game Dan Hoehne/News-SunSurrounded by Dragon teammates, Sarah Morris rises up for a kill attempt in Tuesdays win over Mulberry.SEE VB | A10 BY JAMES TAYLOR NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT The Lake Placid Green Dragon Youth Football and Sebring Blue Streak Youth Football and Cheer will be sending four teams apiece to the second round of the Mid Florida Football and Cheer Conference (MFFCC) playoffs in Okeechobee this Saturday, Oct. 25. With a total of eight teams going and only ve games, Lake Placid and Sebring will battle head to head in three games. The rst game featuring the county rivals will be the opening game of the day with the littlest of players in the ag game. The Lake Placid ag team reached the second round after getting a rst-round bye for winning the district. Sebring played and beat the Okeechobee Brahmans 19-15 in the rst round held in Lake Placid. The ag Dragons comes into the game at 7-3 versus Sebrings 5-6 record. The Green Dragons won the regular season game 14-13. The second game of the day will featured Sebrings unbeaten (100) and unscored upon Mitey Mites against Lake Placid (8-3). The Green Dragons advanced to the second round by beating Okeechobee in the rst round. Lake Placid will not only attempt to dethrone the Blue Streaks as top dog in the Mitey Mites, they will also attempt to be the rst team to score against Sebring, a feat they were unable to accomplish in their regular season matchup as Sebring won 35-0. Sebring not only brings in a dominate defense, their offense is also potent, averaging 32 points per game.

About 11:30 / a.m., J oe ipped deep into the grass, almost on the bank when a big sh struck his bait and busted through the water, giving us a hear t-stopping glimpse Laying do wn my r od and reaching for the net, I knew it would be a challenge getting to this bass through all the vegetation. After what seemed like an eter nity, we nally reached the bass that had wr apped ar ound the gnarly roots and wasnt interested in getting un-tangled. J oe kept his r od tip high and applied pressure but the lunker just wouldn t move. Finally, I grabbed the braided line with both hands and attempted to pull the bass free. The bass, sensing pressure, pulled hard and the line broke. Still wrapped tight ly around the roots, I gr apped the br oken end of the line that was now oating and held on. A couple of short pulls told me the sh was still there With both of us on our hands and knees, we frantically pulled on the vegetation, only to nd a bare hook, entan gled and embedded in the r oots the bass was gone. It was a heart-breaker for Joe and I, and we both guessed the bass to be in the 7-8 pound range, but had we gotten it in the boat, it wouldn t have helped our paltry catch of four keeper bass. Disappointed, we went back to shing, but just couldnt nd the big bites.

And their r esults have been all over the board, ranging from a 50-7 win over St. Pete Catholic last week, to a 51-3 loss to Ft. Myers early in the season. Bishop Verot also got a dose of what the Dragons experienced last week, as they too fell victim to the Tigers of Clewiston by a count of 56-12 on Friday, Oct. 10. The Vikings offense is a virtually even bal ance between the run and pass as they av er age 127 passing yards per game and 154 on the gr ound. The bulk of the signal calling is done by Q uinn F arrell, who has thrown for 758 yards and 10 TDs. Though Alex McDougal has taken some snaps as w ell, having 131 yards passing for three touchdowns. And those passing touchdowns are quite spread out, with nine different receivers have caught scoring passes. That group is lead by Weston Cole, who has nine catches for 266 yards (29.6 yards per catch) and four touch downs. The B ishop Verot ground game falls mostly on the quick feet of freshman Wil liam Scott, who is aver aging 8.8 yards per car ry, totaling 649 yards and nine TDs Scott gets some breaks when the ball is handed to Ricky Queen (162 yards) and Jimmy Dwyer (143). Verot runs a lot of the same stuff we do. We will need to con tinue to try and stop the r un and for ce them to be one dimensional, Robinson said. We also need to r un the ball better and protect our freshmen QB this week. (Tae Williams) is gamer and is capable of making big time plays but w e need to help him and protect him. The Viking defense can be tough, with 13 sacks on the season, and occasionally op portunistic, with seven fumble r eco veries and four interceptions. But as some of their losses show, they can be scored upon. Football is like life, you have to ght for what you want. You have to be willing to put your whole body, mind and soul on the line each week and you have to hate los ing more than you like winning, R obinson added. We are learning these lessons. The nished pr oduct will be something this community and school will be proud of. We will come out swinging this week. That I promise you.Streaks take on LelyThe Sebring Blue Streaks will be coming off a tough loss to W inter H aven as the Streaks take on Lely in Naples this Friday. Sebring is looking to come back strong after the 41-13, district loss to the Blue Devils. Although, those who saw the game realized that it was a very close game until two min utes into the fourth quar ter when all seemed to go wrong. The Streaks, however, are feeling good and ar e r eady to come back and put up a great game against Lely. We have to stay locked in for all of the four quarters, said head coach LaVaar Scott. Lely is very close to Winter Haven in both size and num bers so we have been stressing to the guys the importance of the focus and determination for this game. I n the game against Winter Haven the Streaks came focused and ready to go as on their rst play the Streaks came out with a nifty trick play that resulted in a 67-yard touchdown pass. Sebring was very cre ative in the contest, as they gained o v er 100 yards on the trick plays. The Blue Streaks are 3-3 on the season, while falling to 0-2 in district play. Even though Lely is not in Sebrings dis trict, this is still an important game, for it can lead to some redemption as Lely beat the S tr eaks by 22 points in last years contest. Sebring is also looking to get out of their slump and back to the winning ways of the beginning of the season. Football great Vince Lombardi once said, The greatest accom plishment is not in nev er falling, but in rising again after you fall, and these words are true for the Streaks. What will be impor tant for the team is about ho w they r ise up after last weeks down fall. S till, it will be a tough game against the 4-3 Lely Trojans, but the Streaks are looking for ward to the battle. The battle will be at Lely H igh School in Naples with kickoff scheduled for 7 / p .m. David DeGenaro FB FROM PAGE A A 8back row, extended it to 22-14, and looked as if the Dragons had pulled it together. But the run only served up a chance for the team to seeming ly relax and the play got slopp y The Panthers rolled off seven of the next eight points, largely aided by the Dragons, to close to within 23-21. But the set was soon nished off by a Jacalyn Baldwin kill to seal the 25-21 win. Lake Placid turned it up enough to make the next two sets less wor risome, winning by 2517 and 25-16 scor es Rachel Alejandro lead the offense with nine kills, followed by Baldwins eight. S etters Maddie Wil son and Kailin Brown set up the offense with 14 and sev en assists, re spectively, while Bates used her jump ser v e to come up with six aces. Bates also anchored the back line of defense with 16 digs. The Lady Red Devils, meanwhile, also turned in a very up and down effort as they were stretched to ve sets in Tuesdays win over McKeel. Just very inconsis tent still, head coach S hane W irries said. I mean we won one set 25-8, then went out and lost the next set. That cant happen. Still, both teams got their respective jobs done to reach the ti tle game and ensure that their season s will continue into the state playoffs. That, not to mention the long-standing, cr oss-county r ivalry, should sure work to inspire the Dragons and D evils mo ving forward.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, October 24, 2014 www.newssun.com Solution on B5PUZZLE CORNER DEAR ABBY: A former colleague recently moved nearby and sent us an invitation to dinner at her new residence. She lives in an area thats populated by wild peacocks, which she knew before she moved there. A condition of her invitation is that we (my spouse and I) agree to use a type of high-powered water gun to shoot at the peacocks from her balcony while we are visiting. I understand that these birds can be messy (I assume from their droppings). However, we find conditioning the visit upon our willingness to shoot water at the birds disconcerting. Because we find this activity distasteful, should we decline and state why, or accept but make clear that we wont participate in the fowl-watering activity? How does one handle this tactfully? NO FOWL PLAY IN FLORIDA DEAR NO FOWL PLAY: Because your former colleague invited you with the expressed understanding her guests will be expected to fowlwater, which would make you uncomfortable, politely decline the invitation. If you feel you must pass judgment on shooting at the peacocks, all you need to say is you prefer not to shoot at any creature that cant defend itself. DEAR ABBY: I have been married for 30 years and have no children. Now in my mid-50s, I realize what a negative force my husband has been in my life. I was not allowed to have children, and over the years I have lost all family and most friends because he didnt like anyone. He constantly badmouths the town we live in -its my hometown -and any interests I have. He hasnt worked in 10 years since closing his business. I wake up every morning with the thought of just trying to make it through one more day. I am a shell of the person I once was, and dont know where to turn. Please help. NAMELESS IN THE USA DEAR NAMELESS: Get out of the house and out of isolation. Volunteering in your community will give you an escape from your husbands negativity and an opportunity to meet others who are involved in positive activities. He wont like it, but do it anyway. If you do, it will save your sanity.Pesky peacocks are featured in invitation to dinner party 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. A single uniformed cop shows up in the hitman-out-for-revenge thriller John Wick. He sees blood on the title characters face and hands. Evening John, he says, all friendly even though there have been some noise complaints. Then he leans over to see inside the mans Architectural Digest home and spies a body. You, uh, working again? A non-denial denial. Ill uh, leave you TO it then. Thats the world screenwriter Derek Kolstad and director Chad Stahelski have created. Theres a fraternity (and sorority) of hitmen and women. They all stay at the swank Continental Hotel when visiting Manhattan. The silky and discreet concierge (Lance Reddick, perfect) knows them by name and anticipates their every need. The owner (Ian McShane, spot-on) keeps them up to code. And everybody who sees John Wick wants to leave you TO it, then. The hitwoman (Adrianne Palicki) and men pay for everything with single gold coins contracts, the services of a mob surgeon or the cleaner crew which hauls away the bodies and wipes up the blood. And theres a lot of it. Because John Wick is another one of those guys with particular skills the movies seem overrun with these days. Keanu Reeves is Wick, whom we meet bloodied as he crash es an SUV into a loading dock. A five minute, almost dialogue-free flashback shows us the love of his life (Bridget Moynahan) and her untimely death. Condolences come from the only colleague (Willem Dafoe) to show up at her funeral. Everybody knows John Wick. As in a Western, a bloody-minded young punk (Alfie Allen) messes with the retired man of violence. As in a Western, the punk crosses the link when he shuts up Wicks puppy. And anybody who ever saw a John Wayne movie knows what happens when you mess with a mans dog. Mayhem ensues, which is fitting because one of the supporting players is Dean Winters, a certain insurance companys Mr. Mayhem, cast here as the sidekick to an alarmingly good, wonderfully expressive villain. Michael Nyqvist of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has his best Hollywood role, as Viggo, the Russian mobster who son just crossed the wrong ex-employee. I once saw him kill EIGHT men in a bar...with only a PENCIL! Babay, Viggo calls Wick. Not just The Bogeyman, but the guy you call to KILL the bogeyman. What ensues is pure, unadulterated slaughter, delivered in a style similar to Luc The Transporter Bessons action films, with a touch of John The Killer Woo. Reeves is a bit rough in a few moments where he has to make a speech, but convincingly enraged in others. And fight choreographer Jonathan Eusebio makes great use of him in action. Watch how Reeves holds a gun two hands, headhigh, elbows bent. Notice how he flicks through every clip-change, how he finishes off a mobster with a cursory head-shot. The fights grow bloodier and more personal as the vengeance is dealt. As fodder for fiction, this is strictly C-movie material. But Reeves animates the action and the filmmakers surround him with wonderful co-stars; the quietly menacing McShane, the chop shop operator (John Leguizamo), the dapper cleaner (David Patrick Kelly of The Warriors) and the spitting, hissing Nyqvist. Listen to the way the Swede sputters about having his treasure hoard trashed. Peee-RICE-LESS! Swedes playing Russians make the best bad guys. Everybody knows that, just as surely as everybody in this world knows John Wick and the slaughter thats coming. Because every body knows that you dont mess with a hitmans dog.Movie ReviewCRITICS RATING 12 John Wick a hitman out for revenge AP PHOTOThis photo released by Lionsgate shows Keanu Reeves as John Wick in a scene from the lm, John Wick.

This is the fth year that the commissioners hav e set aside a week to pay tribute to families. The purpose is to str engthen families b y encouraging them to spend more time together. It is believed that str ong families build strong communities. I mpetus for the pr oclamation came from B ette P rine, founder and chair of Highlands County Week of the Family. In todays technological world lled with so many outside distractions, it is easy for family members to be pulled in many differ ent dir ections and we don t want families to lose sight of the impor tance of spending quality time together, Prine said. Each y ear families are asked to focus on at least one way to str engthen their family. In 2012, the focus was on having a w eekly ev ening at home one night a w eek when all members come together for an evening of fun such as a game a movie, and a spe cial treat. Family members were asked to turn off all their cell phones and personal electr onics during that time. Last y ear the focus was on eating meals together as much as possible. According to many family studies, the dinner table is the place for bonding together as a family; a time when family members communicate, get to know one another and lear n the various interests of one another, Prine said. This year families are being asked to focus on expressing appre ciation and affection for one another F amilies need to look for the good in each other and take time to compliment one another S tr ong families devel op an attitude of All for O ne and O ne for All. During Week of the Family, families are encouraged to spend more active time together by attending some of the many family -fr iendly activities available during or near the w eek. This season ther e is the Fine Arts and Crafts Festival on Nov. 1, the Civilian Conservation Corps Festival at High lands Hammock on N o v. 8, the Sebring Kiwanis Club pancake br eakfast on N ov. 1, Drug Free Highlands Our Big Family Night Out red carpet event on Nov. 14 at the Circle Theater in downtown Sebring, to name a few, and there is the Cele bration of the Family on N o v. 15. The Celebration of the Family is a day of tribute to all Highlands Countys families. I t is a day of fun, demonstr ations, on stage pr esentations patriotism, treats, lunch by Chef M ac of the P alms, Magic by Nelson, mar tial arts, clowns, petting z oo Dance Unlimited, Mountain Dew Cloggers, Heart of Highlands Show Chorus, G ame Lane including sack race, three-legged race, and wheelbar row racing, crafts and a cake walk. O n this day Childrens Art Contest and the fourth-grade essay contest winners will be announced and awarded. The many vendors present will teach such things as how to get started on genealogy and safety, while others will educate in differ ent ways pertaining to health, and family ser vices. Hands-on materials will be in abundance and much more will be av ailable for a fun-lled day that families can do together. This will be the second year the very popular Mean, Green Ice C r eam Machine will be on hand dispensing free ice cream to attendees from the back of a J ohn D eere trac tor; the motor of which tur ns the massiv e churns.

Most of the members of the tiny congregation were absent and had not given much thought as to the impor tance of assembling on that particular morning for worship. Only 13 people were present when the Hoovers and their companions arrived. Afterward, the absent members said, If we had known that the President would be there, we would have gone to worship. There are people who assemble to worship our Lord only when they get around to it. Others come when there is a special event that has attracted their attention. Some come only to let everyone else know that they are there. Now, although coming for all these reasons can do a person some good, they are not the reasons that please God. The Lord expects us to come to worship with an attitude of praise to His name because we desire to do so more than anything else. Can anyone truly say that coming together to sing praises to God is without purpose? Can anyone truly doubt the essential nature and pow er of the prayers of the church? Can anyone truly believe that reading and studying the word of God does one absolutely no good? Most of us would cry, Certainly not! We answer that way because we know by faith and experience of the good that comes by doing things Gods way. However, there are still those who choose not to see the benets of coming together to glorify God and encourage others to grow spiritually. God calls on each of us to seek rst His kingdom and His righteousness... (Matthew 6:33) That means that we must put godly things above all other things. In Matthew 5:6, Jesus blesses those who hunger and thirst for righteousness... Thus, we need to spiritually crave those things that draw us closer to God. When children of God neglect to assemble with faithful Christians and worship God, they miss out on time with someone innitely more important than the President of the United States. Yes, they miss out on time with the King of all Kings and the Lord of all Lords! Dont miss out 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. sebringcoc.com, or e-mail us at sebringparkway@ sebringcoc.com. The above instructions may be impossible regarding a rie, but is it absolutely a must regarding the disciples walk with the Master, Jesus, the Christ and Jehovah God. As Paul was instructing young gospel preachers Timothy and Titus, such instructions were given in Titus 2:11-14. This directive is according to the grace of God. This walk involves some negatives: denying ungodliness and worldly lusts. As in any journey, precautions must be taken to avoid perilous situations. Eyes and ears need to be opened so to avoid the dangers of darkness, spiritual ignorance. O Timothy, guard what was committed to your trust, avoiding the profane and idle babblings and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge-by professing it some have strayed concerning the faith. Grace be with you. Amen (1 Timothy 6:20,21). But the walk with the Master is a way of positive action and inuence: soberly, righteously and godly. Soberly (sensibly NASV) would include spiritual self control as admonished in Titus 2:2,5,6. Righteously conveys the idea of upright living guided by a Divine standard in a world gone astray. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is protable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16.17); How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word (Psalm 119:9). Godly would be a life that manifests the qualities of Deity. This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5). Pay close attention to where and when this is to be done: In the present age! This is the rst direction of aim here and now. Jesus spoke of this situation: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father in heaven (Matthew 5:16). Sadly, many people claim to be willing to die for Christ but are not willing to live for Him. Living daily requires a move out of me-ville and this is a move that is daunting to many. Let no man despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity (1 Timothy 4:12). The second aim of the Christians walk is clearly stated: Looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ. It is interesting to note the balance between the two directions: here and now and looking forward to eternity. This balance is evident throughout Pauls instructions to Titus and Timothy ... who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works (Titus 2:14); Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine. Continue in them, for in doing this you will save both your self and those who hear you and Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Let them do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share, storing up for themselves a good foundation for the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life (1 Timothy 4:16; 6:17-19). As noted above, keeping the balance between living and serving faithfully in the kingdom now and the expectation of the glories of eternity/ heaven requires diligent effort and focus. Listen to Pauls struggle: For I am hard pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. Nevertheless to remain in the esh is more needful for you (Philippians 1:23,24). Perhaps the following was ever before his mind: Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him (1 Corinthians 2:9).Frank Parker can be con tacted at frankparker27@ gmail.com.Aiming in two directionsFrank ParkerGUEST COLUMN .................................... ........................................G Y P A B E D D A H R U N ICA M E S P I A Nil S IMN A N A P O N D G C DS H O R S O O T A M RK A L I N D A IS H A R M ACIE G OD U O S E L M SE S C E L IP E T E R F L O R R I C KS H A D S A T I C A B L EH O C M A R S N E I LE P I C E N E A X E LD E F A T E N EH Y D E S T Y
