First council meeting re-enacted I nside Ag-VentureStudents get hands-on lessons By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Highlands County commissioners Tuesday voted to amend the plan for allocating tourist tax dollars. The countys Tourist Development Commission has come under fire in recent years for not spending the money as promised in percentages that were held out as a tourist development plan when it was first offered to the voters a decade ago. Marketed under the slogan Summer Tourists Make Cents,the notion was that money taken from short-term stays at a wide range of facilities ranging from hotels and motels to fish camps and even private homes would be used during the summer months to help bolster the sagging summertime economy. At Tuesdays meeting, attorney for the Highlands County Board of County Commission Ross Macbeth allowed that the percentages may not have been kept,but finding out how much had been misspent or misappropriated was virtually impossible due to the labyrinth of different forms of administration anda totallack of accurate record keeping. In an effort to reconcile the spending,Macbeth explained a formula had been created and approved by the TDC to redistribute $332,338.64 remaining in the TDCs account collected by different means over the past nine years. Under the so-called ReallocationPlan, $93,420.39 would be put in an account established to promote and advertise to attract tourists to Highlands County in the off-season. Another $163,277.97 of the remaining fund balance would go to promote and County straightens out TDC accounting See TDC,page 5A Plan reallocates tourism tax collections


C M Y K B y SAMANTHA GHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comAVON PARK Avon Elementary and Park Elementary are once again working together to raise funds and bring fun to the students,parents and friends of the area with the second annual Harvest Festival on Main on Saturday. Last years inaugural Harvest Festival proved to be a huge success after two schoolsParent Teacher Organizations teamed up to deliver a family-friendly event that raised money for the schools. Harvest Festival on Main is an old fashioned funevent that takes place in downtown Avon Park. It is a wonderful family event geared toward the elementary school aged kids, said Park Elementary PTO member Laura Barben. The festival offers a number of activities and loads of fun highlighted by the upcoming Halloween holiday.The biggest concept of the festival is the costume parade. The parade kicks off the all-day event by giving kids up to age 11 the opportunity to strut their stuff in their Halloween best. The costume parade is proceeded by a costume contest. Children will be judged in their costumes beginning at 9:15 a.m. The winners of the contest will lead the way during the parade down Lake Avenue and into Donaldson Park. Other activities during the day include pony rides,train rides,obstacle courses, slides,games,face painting,m usic,a bounce house,food and,of course,the ever-popular pumpkin patch. The festival is open to the public and free admission. Wrist bands will be sold for $5 which will allow children to play all the games and most of the activities at the festival. All the money raised goes to the schools,said Shannon McCracken,a volunteer for the festival. The money is split evenly between the two schools. Harvest Festival on Main will be held Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. The costume contest and parade will begin at 9:15 a.m. Both events will take place on Main Street and Donaldson Park. For parade information a nd costume instructions, contact Park Elementary at 452-4373.

For two days,attendees can take part in the fun and creepy nature of the long celebrated holiday.The past several years have brought back kids and families to the event to share in the festivities, all while helping to raise money for the organization. The YMCA uses the money raised to help out with the Strong Kids Campaign. Proceeds also go to benefit Julies Funds for Kids. The foundation was founded to help provide financial assistance to families with children who seek to participate in activities and memberships at the YMCA. The Halloween Spooktacular has become one of the biggest events at the facility, according to Program Director Dave Scheck. Spooktacular guests return year after year to get a few treats and frights in a familyfriendly and safe environment. Volunteers from the YMCA and local community provide plenty of activities for attendees. Everything from bounce houses to face painting are available for little super heroes and princesses. Spooktacular also features a haunted house full of creepy creatures that are sure to give brave guests a few scares. For a $2 donation upon entry,parents and kids can experience a classic,communityfocused event that continues to give back. Spooktacular will serve snacks and refreshments such as popcorn and hot dogs throughout the event for additional costs. And,of course,the candy will be flowing at each fun station for kids to collect. The Highlands County YMCA Spooktacular will take place from 6-9 p.m. today and Saturday. Call 382-9622 for details. YMCA Spooktacular brings scares this weekend S pecial to the News-SunAVON PARK After 10 years of guiding the college through institutional growtha nd transformation,South Florida State College president Dr. Norman L. Stephens Jr. has announced that he will retire from the colleges topp ost effective June 30,2013. This decision was made with considerable difficulty and not without second and third thoughts,Dr. Stephenss aid. After 45 years in the community college world, Im ready to join my wife Laurie in a new phase of our lives in active retirement. In the 47 years of this g reat institutions existence, we have worked under the leadership of only three presidents,each outstanding, said Tami Cullens,chair of SFSCs District Board of Trustees. Such a feat is unheard of. As tough a decision as it was for Dr. Stephens to make,he is well-d eserving of this time to write,travel,and just go out and play.It is difficult to let go of a man as outstanding as Dr. Stephens,but as he moveso n,so must we. Since coming to SFSC on Sept. 3,2002,Dr. Stephens has championed numerous changes for the college. InJ uly 2012,South Florida Community College became South Florida State College. This fall term,the college began offering a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Supervision and Management,which has laid the groundwork for future bachelors degrees in nursing ande lementary education. Also on the horizon will be the Bioenergy Education Program in conjunction with BP-Highlands that launchesi n January 2013. During Dr. Stephenstenure,the college saw the addition of programs in radiography,dental hygiene,dental assisting,p aramedic certification,practical nursing at the Hardee Campus,and auto collision repair at the DeSoto Campus.

C M Y K www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, October 19, 2012Page 3A Rotary Apple 3x10.5 00024380 Asked to review the citys challenges and growth during those decades,Hensley spent an hour in a free flowingr eminiscence,ticking off the events and decisions he thinks did the most to shape Sebrings recent history. He insisted,time after t ime,that he should not be portrayed as the man respons ible for the citys success. Sebring has always been about collaborative effort,he s aid,adding,I was there, but did I make it happen? No. In any case,he added, some of what he remembers dates from long before he ever held elected office. The most important change for Sebring,Hensley said, was the expansion of U.S. 27 from two lanes to four. This happened beginning in 1965, w hile he was still a private citizen. Four lanes opened up the highway for development, he said. Before there was nothing out here (on the western side of Lake Jackson). U. S. 27 was the biggest thing. Hensley said the second most important development began in 1969 with plans to raise $4 million for investment in Highlands County schools,especially establishing individual high schools in Sebring and Avon Park, which opened in 1971. The new schools started the growth of the school district, he said,and helped economic development. The third major event was t he creation of the Community Redevelopment Agency,Hensley said. That was a wonderful development that helped updated owntown and Washington Heights. The CRA has done a great deal and is still very viable,providing grant funding for residents and busi-n esses. The Airport Authority on whose board Hensley served for a time is the fourth important development,he said. The airport needed a lot of updating. Among other improvements,the authority restored the neglected railroad siding, leading to the airports industrial site. We needed to develop rail service to bring in new business,he said. Since then the airport itself has become a success story of its own. The fifth most important story in the citys history, Hensley said,is the long,sad tale of ill-fated Harder Hall. S ince it first opened in 1920s developer after developer failed in their attempts to m ake a success of the pink white elephant. We tried to make it work,Hensley said,by signing on with a loan from the government.When the developer failed after putting$ 4 million into the building, the city had to foreclose. It has been looking for a buyer ever since. The Sebring Raceway,of course,was a major development in 1952,Hensley said,a nd sixth on his list. As important as the race itself is, h owever,the benefit from it came to Sebring primarily through the Firemens Association Inc.,Hensley said. It was the Firemens Association that put together a race committee and volunteers. As a result of that,the Firemen got the receipts froma ll the concession stands and thats how they got their money in those years. Because of that money they could built the football and baseball fields and the fairgrounds. Hensley made clear,however,that events were secondary to Sebrings growth and success,what really counts is the people. I cant say enough about our staff and employees,he said. We have so many people who have the city at heart. Groups cooperate and the community itself is unselfish and very,very giving. It always steps up. Continued from page 1A 1960s to control area floodi ng. This is a fact-finding trip t o see whether there is a federal nexus,Rooney told the News-Sun,and if there isnta federal nexus,then what are the options. Im here to meet t he players and try to learn the issue better. James Dean,a lakeside resident who has been in the forefront of seeking a solu-t ion,was on the tour. It went well,he said. We got the r ight people to come and see. The first step was the meeting (with citizens and statea nd county experts in September). This was the s econd step. No decisions have yet been made as to what actionss hould be taken or when. There are two reasons for that the question of funding and the need to understand the scope of the problem in the context of the entire water system. F or example,Clell Ford, the county lakes manager, e xplained to the group that filling in the canal between t he two dams would cause flooding upstream. The focus right now,Ford said,is building a cooperat ive effort between the vario us agencies and governm ents. The Florida D epartment of Transportation has agreed to get permits to clear the channel under the bridge and requests for funding are in p rocess. In the meantime,recent rains have raised lake levels. C ontinued from page 1A Praise and Worship Team and Joe Lewis,as well as the messages delivered byW ings of Faith Pastor Robert Shannon,The Salvation Armys Major Bruce Stefanik,and First United Methodist ChurchP astor A.C. Bryant. Unity,legacy,love and compassion resonated through the messages delivered by the various pastors. A llen Altvater opened the service with other members of the First Baptist Churcho f Lake Josephine Praise and Worship Team. Between songs he said the crowdg athered to celebrate how blessed we are to be living i n the best place in the state.He encouraged everyone to think about thep eople God has given to us and taken away. He rememb ered Centennial Committee member Sandia Wehenkel,who passed away in June. He also reminded guests about Saturdaysd edication of Kenilworth Boulevard to one of S ebrings favorite sons, Major Tommy McGuire. Shannon told the crowd t hat its important to understand that legacy has to do w ith unity. One cannot make that transition without unity and the only way to h ave a legacy is to harvest yourself. Everyone who was at the service was there to celebrate God,who brought ush ere together in unity. Unity,he said,helps us to recognize the differences in each other. Unity applauds the greatness in each of us.L ove has a propensity to f orget the negative things and promote the positive things. A s he closed,Shannon pointed to Lake Jackson and s aid,I couldnt swim out there until I was 14. I had to swim at Dinner Lake. Lets all pray for unity.Shannon,a black pastor,referenced a t ime in his childhood when he and his friends were not a llowed to swim at Lake Jackson because of their color. B ryant carried the message of love a little further. H e said the Scripture is clear what love really is. Love is not a feeling; its a demons tration,he said as he quoted I Corinthian 14:3-8. He told guests how a young Nancy Heacock would spend summers inN orth Carolina where she met a young George Hensley. George eventually visited Sebring and Nancy just tod iscover that her heart w ould never leave Sebring. Today he is our mayor. God works in us to do a job....T his city is what it is because of the men and w omen who God has willed to do not what they wanted it to be,but what God wants it to be.

Upon reviewing the college for its reaffirmation of its accreditation in November 2011,the visitation team from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission (SACS) on Colleges had no recommendations for the college. In other words,the college was found to be an educational institution of the highest standards. As part of its reaffirmation of accreditation,SFSC created the Guide to Personal Success (GPSa new and comprehensive student orientation,a First-Year Experience seminar,and a Teaching Excellence Institute. The SACS visitation team cited the GPSs development process as an educational best practice. Further,SFSC was among 120 out of over 1,200 community colleges across the United States to be nominated for the prestigious Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence,not just once but two years in a row. SFSCs reputation,its outstanding faculty,and community support have made SFSC the college of first choice for Highlands,Hardee,and DeSoto county high school students. Four out of five,or 80 percent,of first-time college-bound graduates in its tri-county district attend SFSC. Dr. Stephens encouraged partnerships with local entities to enhance the educational experience of students, such as through the development of the Career Academy of South Florida State College in partnership with the Highlands County School District in August 2008. The program allows 10th12th graders to take required high school courses and select college technical courses,preparing them to enter the workforce and to continue their education. Remedial programs were established at SFSC,such as the Summer Bridge Program, helping at-risk high school students prepare to enter college and the workforce.

The object of Red Ribbon Week is to educate teenagers and their families about the dangers of abusing drugs, howt o recognize addiction and what to do when adolescents need help. A ccording to MedicineNet.com, substance abuse is caused by multiple factors rather than any one cause. Those f actors include low parental supervision, family conflicts, inconsistent or severe parental discipline and a family history of drug use. At the individual level, those young people who have been physically or sex-u ally abused, have learning or emotional problems, or have low impulse control, thrill-seeking behavior or the belief that drugs are not dangerous, are much more at risk. A ccording to the Florida Youth Substance Abuse Survey of 2010 Highlands County teen drug use iss lightly higher than the state average. For example, 32.1 percent of county adolescents reported using alcohol int he preceding 30 days, while the state percentage was 28.8. T here is a wider discrepancy in terms of cigarette smoking 12.6 percent of county teens report having smokedw ithin 30 days of the survey, versus 8.8 percent statewide. T here is good news regarding smoking, however. Use of tobacco is steadily trending downward. In 2000, for example, nearly 20 percent of middle and high school students had smoked in a 30-day period. As a community, however, it is not e nough to simply track drug use.

For youth development, for healthy living, for social responsibility, Dave Scheck Sebring YMCAProgram Director Amendments are difficult to change, voidEditor: Today, Oct. 16, there were two good letters one by Hal Graves on term limits and one by Bill Youngman on Constitutional Amendments. One of the reasons our country is in such desperate shape today is due to people in Congress aging in office to the point they cant cope with the changing world and times. They have used taxpayer money to offer perks to their constituents to keep themselves in offfice. This can be stopped by term lim-i ts, which would prevent them from creating their dynasties. Some of these 80to 90-year-old Senators dont know the time of day, leta lone understand what is in the bills they are agreeing to and passing. I think that eight amendments to the State Constitution is ridiculous. They might just as well come up with a new constitution. With all these changes being asked for, I can only think that the persons offering the amendments have an iron in the fire somewhere. As for myself, I am going to vote No on every amendment change. Let them make these changes by state law, which can be repealed if necessary. Amendments to a constitution are very difficult to to change or void. Dick Ford SebringLook at your own glass house firstEditor: George Hensley ... tsk, tsk, tsk. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. I find it amusing that our mayor would have issues with Ms. Flecks example, that he goes on about in length in distaste, a letter to the editor Sept. 30, trying to sway future votes. He has not said one word about current city council member Bud Whitlock running an unlicensed survey business for many years while a Sebring City Council member. (Whitlock fined by the Florida Department of Business Regulation in this wrong doing and would be a convicted felon if he did not have the Florida Statute of Limitations save him from my complaint to theD epartment of Justice and State Attorney for my survey he did more than 20 years ago. Even though he is not scot-free as anyone who hash ad a survey done by Whitlock Land Surveying the past five years could still file a felony complaint with the State Attorneys office as the surveys are of no value and in error since it was an unlicensed business doing the work. (Hensley tioned the ethic issues this brings about in (Whitlock serving as a current city council during the mayors term and on his watch. The mayor has said nothing nor filed any ethic complaints against this wrong-doer while being present to see Whitlock vote on more than one item at council meetings on issues he was directly involved with. This is how the mayor protects We the People? This is just one issue of many I will bring to light. The truth will set you free and I have tried to keep a tight lip until after the citys 100-year anniversary so as to not sully the event until the mayor found it necessary to make a statement he knows will lean a vote simply based off of his word before Sebrings 100th anniversary and the voters who depend on and trust his word. Not that Im against free speech, because Im not. However, you have big skeletons in your closet, George Hensley. I think its time you addressed the bigger issues of bad example and ethic issues in your own glass house before judging others. Gingerlee Mitchellindo SebringAmendment will not promote religious freedomEditor: First of all, Florida Amendment 8 has nothing tod o with more religious freedom. This title was chosen as many are to get the uninformed voters pointed in the direction to get this amendment pushed through. It deals with how your tax dollars will be spent. The ballot issue reads, Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution providing that no individual or entity may be denied, on the basis of religious identity or belief, governmental benefits, funding or other support, except as required by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and deleting the prohibition against using revenues from the public treasury directly or indirectly in aid of any church, sect, or religious denomination or in aid of any sectarian institution. If passed, this amendment will not promote religious freedom, it will do the opposite. It will open the door to silence religious organizations and their beliefs in order to receive government funding. It will give the government the ability to promote religious activities through government funding, directly undermining the true principle of separation of Church and State. Keeping the government out of the church. It will force the taxpayers to fund all religious activity, to include Islamic, Satanic and cult religious activity. You notice it says no individual or entity may be denied, on the basis of religious identity or belief, governmental benefits, funding or other support. Wonder what other support means? And where do you think the state will get the moneyt o do this funding, another tax? No, you dont think they would do that, do you? The way it is now is a long way from perfect andt hat is because the government is running it and I have a problem allowing the government the power to move into the church. I dont them running my health care or my church. Now the government has no say on how I serve my God. And you are not required to fund how I serve my God. You can fund any religion you please, as much as you please and the government has no say over it. Look at the ones supporting this amendment and what they are looking to gain, if it passes. They will tell you, you can trust the government. Sorry, but I cant trust the government over God, because I know God will keep his Word until the end of time. Vote No on Amendment 8. Bill Youngman SebringJohnson is the man for PresidentEditor: Every four years, American voters choose the next occupant of the White House. We flail back and forth between the Republicans and the Democrats. Both parties try to convince us to not so much vote for them, but to vote against the other party. Every election the voters do the same thing, a vote for the Democrat or the Republican. Then they wonder why nothing ever changes and things keep going downhill. Isnt the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over and e xpecting different results? The two major political part ies are counting on voter insanity to maintain their grip on the power and thep urse strings. The only way to stop this incompetent and idiotic merry-go-round is to g et rid of both major parties. They both are far more intere sted in staying in power than doing the right thing for the people. I dont need a crystal ball to predict that nothing willi mprove until we stop this two party hegemony and vote independent or third party. This year we have very viable choice for President who will be on your ballot.G ary Johnson, a former twoterm governor of New M exico. He is a real fiscal conservative and was very popular governor. Please people, we have to try something different whilew e have a chance. The Republicans and the Democrats will drive this ship right into the rocks while fighting over who getst o steer. I am tired of the party power brokers laughing at us because we keep giving them the keys to the car and the liquor cabinet. This is the time to show both parties we are tired of this idiocy. Vote for Gary Johnson for President. D.B. Orr Avon ParkThree election distractions to avoidEditor: I recently had a fellow professor say, I live in a world of distractions. I am sure that many of us feel the same way as we go through our daily activities. Avery important activity coming soon is the Nov. 6 election. This should not be a time when distractions keep us from choosing the most qualified candidate for an office. The voting for the Office of Superintendent of Highlands County Schools is an important one for the students of our county. Voters need to avoid three distractions that could keep them from voting for the best candidate. Those distractions are political party affiliation, the good old boy mind set, and the need for improvement in the grades many of our county schools have received over the past years. The first distraction is an all too familiar scenario. With our two-party political system, it is all too often that voters make a selection Continued on page 8A


C M Y K advertise arts and culture events with $75,640.27 pointed toward promoting and advertising local events. W hat constitutes off seasonhas been a moving target since the tourist tax passed by a 521-vote margin in 2002. Following the nar-r ow approval by voters,the idea of summertourists was enlarged to include what were termed shoulder months,increasing thedefi-n ition of off-seasontime from April through December. A requirement for verified overnight stays also was added for any event that wanted funding. Long-terme vents also were excluded for eligibility for funding. D uring the discussion, Macbeth told commissioners that in prior years it was feltt hat the funds were being appropriately expended u nder the percentages as designated. However,it has been shown that administrative expenses,including wagea nd benefit packages for TDC staff,exceeded the 29 p ercent figure that is part of the plan. Macbeth told commissione rs they could dispense with the intricacies of accounting f or the moniessimply by authorizing the expenditure of funds for purposes that area uthorizedby the statute, explaining that the statute has expenditure provisions t hat are broader than the current TDC plan approved by v oters. That would take a supermajority,or four of the comm issions five votes. Another suggested method to meet the percentages is raising the tourist tax assessment from 2 percent to 3 per-c ent. A motion to that effect reportedly already has been passed by a majority vote of the TDC board. That is slated to come to thec ommissionsome time afterthe November general elections. The TDC has been under the scrutiny ofFloridas JointL egislative Auditing Committee. However,during the meeting,interim County Administrator June Fisher produced an email from that board accepting the countyse xplanations and saying they had no further questions at t his time. Citizen Bill Youngman asked commissioners to looka t figures showing that revenue from the Tourist D evelopment Commission had dwindled nearly each year since the inception of the tax. The numbers,based on taxes assessed againsts hort-term stays,ranged from a high of $462,280 to last y ears total take of $292,291. He suggested they consider farming outthe TDC admin-i stration to the private sector. Commissioner Don Elwell, w ho also sits as the chairman of the TDC,explained the only way to legally re-alloc ate the remaining funds was to amend the plan. Elwell maintained it was nothing more than trying to restore the funds remaining to thep roper accounts rather than leaving any of it in administration/payroll/overhead. That account,he pointed out, has been overspent for nearlya decade. Jack Nelson,the chairman of the Highlands Tea Party organization,told the commissionthe controversy overt he matter was a great example of why the tourist tax should have a sunset provision.A number ofcommissioners have steadfastly opposed the idea of puttingt he tourist tax up for a vote of the people saying they feared i t might be defeated. Commissioners Barbara Stewart and Greg Harriss olicited assurances from Macbeth that the TDC had n ot engaged in any misconduct or abuse,and had done nothing fraudulent orunlawful. Macbethindicated they had not. He told commission-e rs the pending action would put the issue to rest.

C M Y K Page 8ANews-SunFriday, October 19, 2012www.newssun.com of the candidate based on their party affiliation. Many school districts in many states have the position of s uperintendent a non-partisan position. To select a candidate for any office, one should move beyond the party affiliation to evaluate the past history of the candidate and their qualifications. In considering the two individuals running for this office, it is quite clear that Rebecca Fleck has the neede d past experience both in t he classroom and in administration to take the schools ystem of Highlands County t o a new level. From her initial classroom experience t hrough various levels of a dministration to her current Assistant Superintendent of C urriculum position, she understands all levels and their challenges. The second distraction is the on-going good old boy mind set that exists not o nly in Highlands County b ut in many parts of our g reat country. While it is always great to have friends a nd supporters as a result of community and family history, it should never be the basis upon which to select a c andidate. Arecent letter written to your paper is an o bvious example of the good old boy system at w ork. This letter was written by one of the good old b oys and had statements supporting Mr. Cox thatc learly reflected little in depth analysis of the qualific ations of Mrs. Fleck. The most important dist raction voters must avoid is the outward appearance t hat every thing is fine in our school system and if it i s not broke, dont fix it. One look at the grades many of our schools have received from the state over the past y ears would quickly show the voter that there are manyp arts of our school system that need fixing. While Mr. Cox has faced many challenges during our economic down turn, many of our schools have made no advancements in their overall school grades. This should be a wake up call for the citizens of Highlands County that the current status quo should not be the basis for our schools for the next four years. Rather than going along with the status quo, Mrs. Fleck, with her vast past experience, will take a new, fresh look at what is needed to bring our schools up from where they are to a grade level which will make all of us more proud of the Highlands County School system. Voters, please do not let distractions keep you from considering the candidacy of Rebecca Becky Fleck for our Highlands County Superintendent of Schools. Lynn B. Mac Neill Professor, South Florida State CollegeCox has proven his leadershipEditor: Wally Cox has the balance of leadership, management, and business skills to lead our school system. He respects otherspoints of view and cares deeply about employees, students, parents, and the community. He is running this campaign with strong moral and ethical Christian values. His focus is on working with all stakeholders to continue to improve our Highlands County school system. Mr. Cox has the necessary skills and experience to continue as your Superintendent of Schools. He has served as president of the Florida Association of School Superintendents. This grouph onored him as the Superintendent of the Year for the entire state of Forida. Recently he was selected as one of seven superintendentst o advise our governor on educational issues. Again this is a strong indication of his reputation and experience at the state level. L inda Eldridge, a clinical professor at the University of Florida's Department of Educational Administration and Policy, said a business leader could run a schoold istrict. It would depend on the skill set of the person w ho is running, Eldridge said. She said the person must be focused on puttingt ogether a talented team of administrators. Its the team t hat builds a school district, she said. (Does level of education matter with superintendent candidates? By Joe Callahan, Staff writer,O cala.com, Published: Monday, May 21, 2012 at 7 :40 p.m.) Wally Cox uses a talented team of administrators toa ccomplish the goals of our district. Mr. Cox is not only s killed, but he is also a visionary. Arecent news article told a bout new state legislation for advanced academics. Highlands County is in an e xcellent position regarding this legislation since Mr. C ox and his teams have been working on this for about 10 years. Under his leadership advanced academics has expanded to all grade levelsf rom elementary HAART classes to advanced middle and high school courses, including the lauded International Baccalaureate program. Vote Wally Cox proven l eadership, fiscally responsible, and a visionary for our c hildrens future. Diane L. Lethbridge Retired Teacher and Administrator Lake PlacidFacts you didnt know about the boy with pink hairE ditor: I want the public to know the true facts about this story and the outfall, which resulted in the printing/airing of an inaccurate story. This mother signed the Code of Conduct indicating she agreed to adhere to its rules, which included no hair of unnatural color. This child was not in ISS all day. He was there for less than 10 minutes before being checked out. The child returned the next day with purple hair. In a conversation with the mother, suspension was never mentioned and the mother admitted that her sons hair was now purple after dying it black twice. She even asked Mr. Doty to help her fix the problem. The mother didnt share these facts with reporters. This mother embellished her side of the story on this very serious subject, because she knew it would touch the hearts of many thus causinga media frenzy. As a result of her inaccurate story, the school was inundated with hate calls and e-mails verbally attacking the principal, his staff and the schools policies. It even resulted in physical threats against Mr. Doty. This is absurd and unacceptable. Rules are a part of life, whether youre an adult or child. And when they are broken, there are consequences. Why should this case be any different? Where do you draw the line when making exceptions to the rules? And what message are we sending our kids bya llowing rules to be broken or overlooked? Mr. Doty was portrayed to be an indifferent, heartless bully who was against any-o ne showing their support of Breast Cancer Awareness. Mr. Doty has witnessed this horrific disease in his own family, so he does supportB reast Cancer Awareness. But more importantly, he supports the schools policies/procedures, enforces them and holds those who break the rules accountablef or their actions, which is his job! I n closing, I hope people see this story in a different light. Lets keep it abouts upporting the cause and not about someone who was l ooking for some public attention. Cindy Hamilton SebringMud bogs arent so family-friendlyEditor: Proposed mud bog Swamp H ammock is being advertised as a family-friendly, o utdoor activity, but recent news stories from other mud parks around Florida reveals omething else ... Ateenager at a concert at Redneck Yacht Club in P unta Gorda found her car smashed by a monster mud t ruck, whose owner thought he had permission to destroy the car. Acouple was arrested at the St. Lucie Mudjam inM arch for fighting while watching girls dance on stripper poles mounted (to ATVs. Note that owners of this event did not bring in stripper poles (common at mudding events), guests did. Aquick Internet search of Okeechobee Mudfest r eveals photos and videos of girls with breasts bared. When a young man was critically injured in an ATV accident at Mudfest, it tooko ver an hour for a medical helicopter to arrive to his aid amongst the chaos. Atoddler was backed over and killed by his auntl ast year at Hog Waller Mud Bog in Putnam County. A horrible accident amongst the chaos. APasco County teenager fatally stabbed a man at Horse Hole Creek as they argued over engine revving. His father was also involved in the fight. The laws designed to keep intoxicated drivers off roads are not enforced in most mud bogging facilities. Swamp Hammocks family friendly activities arent what families in Highlands County need. This community is still mourning the loss of a promising young man, just months ago, to the reckless group mentality that comes along with underage drinking at parties. Swamp Hammock is likely to foster that same sort of environment, even if that is not their intention. Thousands of people, alcohol vendors on site, open coolers, hundreds of vehicles being driven offroad, and hundreds of acres of space to disappear unsupervised on the property is a recipe for disaster. It isnt a matter of if deaths will occur, it is a matter of when deaths will occur. When someone dies at Swamp Hammock, who is to blame? Is it the participants? Parents? Security? Land owners? County commissioners? Zoning officials? Or citizens of the community who knew it would happen eventually but encouraged it anyway?

C M Y K By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentSEBRING There is no better way for a high school senior to finish their athletic career in high school than with a win. Kayla Selander, senior of Highlands University Preparatory School, had the final game of her high school career Tuesday night. I have never had an athlete like her, said head coach Shannon Cleveland. o watch her grow over the past five years has been amazing. Selander started her career in volleyball playing on varsity as an eighth grader, back when they were the Heartland Christian Crusaders, and stuck with it all the way to her senior year. Being the only senior for the Lady Pride, Selander was expected to take on the role as the leader and did so very well. s just been an amazing leader, explained Cleveland. Selander has a couple schools in prospect of where she might continue her career Flagler College of St. Augustine and University of North Florida in Jacksonville. s been a journey said Selander when asked about her career with the Lady Pride. Selander explained her favorite part is helping out the younger girls to better their skill level. Im hoping what I can teach them will better them in future years, she said. Selander is a natural leader and will be greatly missed by the Lady Pride. Special to the News-SunPLANTCITY The Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC this week to Plant City to take on another team of Eagles on Saturday, Oct. 13. In honor of Breast Cancer A wareness Month, several of the teams have been wearing pink tape on their cleats, shoelaces, arm bands, mouthpieces, chin straps and bracelets and the Cheerleaders wearing pink ribbons in their hair on game days for the month of October. Some of the Youth Football staff have family members that are battling breast cancer or are a survivor and is it a great tribute and support to see the players and cheerleaders proudly supporting this cause. Going into final game of the season, the Highlands Eagles Football teams wrapped up the regular season with each team making the playoffs in the Sunshine Police Athletic League (PAL) association. The first game featured the Flag team which got going early when Fred Hankerson returned the opening kickoff 60 yards for a touchdown. The offense quickly made i tspresence known with 30-yard touchdown by John Alexander and Hankerson scoring his second kickoff return of the day. But Plant City quickly responded with some scores of their own. The defense stood strong in this dogfight, with key defensive plays by Keldrice Legree, Christian Edwards, Darian Peterson and Willie King. Hankerson stole the show for the day, scoring another two touchdowns for four on the day, leading to a 31-25 Eagle win. With the win, the Flag teams final record stood at 7-2, good for third place in the NFC division of the Sunshine PALLakeland League. The next game featured the Mighty Mights. The Eagles offense took the field but struggled and had a hard time getting refocused as they were concerned about their teammate Ronnie Roberts who was injured during the game with a broken wrist. The defense fought hard with solid tacking by Xavier Mobley, Wheelock and Coston, holding Plant City to 14 points going late into the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough and the Eagles were dealt a tough 20-0 loss to My son Chris, who lives in Jupiter, Florida, recently partnered with me to buy a 2004 Ranger 2300 Bay boat with a 250 hp Yamaha. We had an opportunity to take it out last week and it performed well. Although we didnt spend a great deal of time fishing, we both bought snook s tamps just in case we were lucky enough to catch one in Jupiter Inlet. Fishing with shrimp, we caught lots of fish; jacks, catfish, pinfish, sailors delight, hogfish and even a s mall manta ray. Redfish, snook and s eatrout, although touted to be all over Jupiter Inlet, w ere nowhere to be found. B ut it was still allot of fun. Cruising along the boat docks with the electric motor, we got pretty excited when a large school of jacks began hitting the surface. Casting into the school, w e both hooked up and had a great time landing a coup le each before the school moved on. Theyre an incredibly strong fish and lots of fun on light tackle. Saturday and Sunday I decided to leave my bass fishing gear behind and try my luck on Lake Istokpoga for specks. For anyone who was out last Saturday, you know it was an extremely windy day. Launching the boat around 9 a.m., I was surprised at the ferocity of the wind, and although I had ta rgeted the north end of the lake, I was surprised to find myself all alone. One thing I learned a long time ago, if the specks are hitting, just look for the high concentration of boats in one area and join in. With no other boats in the vicinity, I began questioning whether Id picked the right day for speck fishing. Fishing in about 5-feet of water, my concern was vanquished pretty quickly as I dropped my first crappie rig into the water and before Ic ould get my second rod rigged, a huge speck had nailed my bait. Now maybe its been a while since Ive caught some nice specks, but this o ne was a beauty. I had to measure the fish and I was pleased to see it was just a tad over 15 inches in length. Now thats a good sized speck. The winds continued to blow and the waves got even SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, October 19, 2012 Page 4B Fishin Around...

Selander leaves her mark with Lady Pride B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID The Dragons got a dose of their own medicine Tuesday night. After the Lake Placid football team had spoiled Avon Parks Homecoming game the previous Friday, the Lady Dragon volleyball squad saw itsSenior Night ruined in Sebrings stunning 3-2 win Tuesday. It had been a tumultuous 12 days since Blue Streak setter Lindsey Whittington had gone down with an ankle injury on Sebrings own Senior Night on Thursday, Oct. 4. Since then, it has been a rough adjustment for the Streaks and head coach Venessa Sinness. e havent looked good, she said before Tuesdays contest. We havent been getting the contributions from some of the older girls that I had been expecting. Even with Whittington gradually back in action this night, the lull of her absence w as still evident as Lake Placid broke the first set open. Up just 6-5 after kills from Whittington and Hannah Tucker kills, the Lady Dragons ran off the next seven points for a 13-5 advantage. Sebring would make a mini-run later to pull to within 22-15, but a Breauna Corley kill and Jacalyn Baldwin ace paved the way to the 25-16 Lake Placid win. But though the five-set curse of this rivalry had gone by the wayside the last two years, these county combatants never go down easy and it wasnt long before the Blue Streaks rejoined the fight. The Dragons started the second set strong, holding a Lady Streaks flip script on Dragons See SEBRING, Page 3B

Back and forth it went, with each team retaking the lead at several junctures, but it was Bertram who proved the difference with the third of her kills in the set going for the winning point in the 25-23 win. With just one more win needed to take the match, Lake Placid head coach Linette Wells saw an opportunity to mix it up in the third. But the change soon saw a shift in momentum and the Lady Streaks flipped the script from the first set. This time it was Sebring that went up big early, getting out to a 15-8 lead, before the Dragons responded and closed the gap to four. But a pair of Whittington kills and service aces from Hannah Lollis sealed the 2516 Streak win. The duplication and reversal of the first two sets continued in the fourth as Lake Placid picked it up and got out to an 11-5 lead. But the Streaks charged back and soon saw it all even at 23-23 before Meghan Lollis soon finished it off with a kill for the 25-23 match-tying win. APaige Lewis kill saw Sebring holding a 6-3 edge in the 15-point, fifth-set tiebreaker, but the Dragons made a valiant rally to even it at 9-9. Sebring would score four of the next five points, however, and would close it out with a 15-12 win to complete the miraculous comeback. Im happy with how we played, Wells said. I found a group that plays well together, we just lost momentum and never got it back. Lake Placids regular season is complete with their next date on the court being Tuesday, Oct. 23, as they host the District 10-4A Tournament and face Avon Park at 7:30 p.m. The Lady Streaks sought to spoil the Red Devils Senior Night Thursday before heading to the District 9-6A Tournament at Kathleen to face Lake Gibson at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

C M Y K higher, but the bite was slow. Id catch one every 10 or 15 minutes, most in the 1213 size, but the farther I got from the north end the rougher the water got. Specks like a moving bait and the rough water certainly provided plenty of that. I had to change the weight I was using three times just to get the minnows down n ear the bottom. B y 1 p.m. on Saturday, the bite stopped and I headed for home with 11 nice sized specks. Id only caught four undersize fish, so I was pleased to have a nice mess of filets. Sunday morning I went out a little earlier, around 8 a.m. and the water was just about as rough. I moved in closer to shore and found fish in 4-feet, 2inches of water. The drift, like Saturday, was very fast, but I started catching specks within a few minutes in the shallower water. Unlike the previous day, the first three or four specksI caught were all undersized. Moving out to 5-feet, 4inches of water, I started catching larger fish and even caught one double-header. By noon the waves were just too much for me so I decided to call it a day. When I arrived, there were three other boats in the vicinity, all apparently drift fishing or trolling for specks. By the time I left, I was the only boat on the water. None of the specks from Sunday were over 15 but a few were in the 14 range and with 11 specks on Saturday and the 13 from Sunday, I had 48 nice sized filets for future meals. Im not a big fish eater, but my wife and Mother-inLaw love fish, so Ill be going back out to catch more before the season is over. We really havent had a cold spell yet in Highlands County, and I suspect when we do the speck fishing will be great. Judging by the fish I caught over the weekend, catching a limit of these great eating fish is something every fisherman should be considering over the next month or two.

She comes from a sizable family herself with five sisters and one brother. W hen Perkins was 13,her mom and dad decided to return to Puerto Rico. I t was a cultural shock to Diana who did not speak,read or write Spanish. After graduating high school in Puerto Rico,Perkins had aspirations to become a doctor,but lacking required resources,shea ttended the nursing program at EDP College in San Sebastian,where she eventually r eceived an associates degree in nursing, graduating magna cum laude. After working three years in the ER at G ood Samaritan Hospital in Aguadilla, Perkins decided to move to Highlands C ounty,where she worked at Highlands Regional Medical Center six years. In due course,she learned Cornerstone H ospice was in search of a bilingual nurse to facilitate communications with the many Spanish-speaking patients and families residi ng in Highlands county in need of hospice care. Y vonne Cannon,RN and patient care supervisor at the Cornerstone Hospice office o n Sparta Road,said we are elated at having a registered nurse of Dianas caliber join Cornerstone Hospice not merely for her bilin-g ual ability,but because she has a track record of great nursing work in Puerto Rico a s well as at Highlands Regional Medical Center.

NEW YORK (AP Pfizer Inc.s advanced kid-n ey cancer treatment Inlyta missed its main late-stage study goal when compared to another drug in patients who had not been treated fort he disease. The New York drugmaker said Wednesday that patients taking Inlyta had a median progression-frees urvival that exceeded that of patients taking the drug sorafenib,but the differencew as not statistically significant. Progression-free survival measures the timef rom the start of treatment until a patients cancer begins advancing again or the patient dies. A Pfizer official said in a statement the drug narrowly missed the goal,and the company would analyze the findings to figure outw hether it should study Inlyta in subpopulations of so-called treatment-naive patients. Inlyta,known chemically a s axitinib,is a pill thats part of a promising new generation of targeted can-c er drugs from Pfizer,the worlds largest drugmaker. It targets proteins that affectt he growth and spread of tumors and the development of new blood vessels to feed those tumors. It has already receiv ed a pproval in Europe,the United States and several other countries to treat adult patients with renal cell carcinoma who have been treated unsuccessfully with other drugs. Renal cell carcinoma is the sixth-leading cause of cancer deaths. About a third of patients are not diagnosed until the cancer hass pread to multiple body p arts,limiting chances of survival. Pfizer: Kidney cancer drug narrowly misses study goal W ASHINGTON (AP A federal appeals court in W ashington is considering whether marijuana should be reclassified from its cur-r ent status as a dangerous drug with no accepted medi cal use. Last year,the Drug Enforcement Administrationr ejected a petition by medical marijuana advocates to change the classification, w hich kept marijuana in the same category as drugs such a s heroin. The DEA conc luded that there wasnt a consensus opinion among e xperts on using marijuana for medical purposes. The petition had been filed in2 002. A medical marijuana g roup,Americans for Safe Access,want the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Districto f Columbia Circuit to force the agency to hold a hearing and conduct findings based o n the scientific record. The groups lawyer,Joe E lford,said that the DEA h ad misapplied the law. He added there are numerous s tudies that show marijuana is effective as a medical treatment. The groups legalb rief said marijuana could help people with chronic p ain and the negative side effects of chemotherapy, among other things. M arijuana is classified under Schedule Iof controlled substances,meaning i t has a high potential for abuse and no currently a ccepted medical use.

CanI use cinnamon spice to lower my blood sugar if Im taking metformin? Does cin-n amon have other health benefits? E.G.,Decatur,Ill. Answer: There are different kinds of cinnamon,andt he spice that you sprinkle on your oatmeal is not the b est one in terms of health benefits. Yeah for real,didnt you know there were varieties of cinnamon? Hang on. I think its alright to comb ine cinnamon spice with metformin,but if you cons ume commercial supplements along with your medications,I suggest you tracky our blood sugar routinely and gain your physicians b lessings. Remember,taking two anti-diabetic agents will enhance the blood sugar-l owering effect,and if it plunges too low,you get hypoglycemia. If you cons ume authentic,high-quality brands of cinnamon,this c ould actually happen to you. Symptoms of hypoglycemia include nausea, sweating,palpitations,weakness,fainting and anxiety. D oes cinnamon work? Several studies that have established health benefits for the warming,aromatic spice of autumn. Researchers who conducted a metaanalysis concluded that cin-n amon extract could reduce fasting blood sugar. Thats great because its well established that elevated fasting blood sugars are a risk factorf or diabetes and heart disease. The glycemic action of cinnamon is almost comparable to your medication butd ont take that as an invitation to stop your metformin. My point is that cinnamon has some merits that need to be further elucidated. Heres one reference:Davis PA,Y okoyama W.Cinnamon intake lowers fasting blood g lucose. J Med Food. April 2011. Another study found that d aily intake of cinnamon (for about two months) could s ignificantly lower the fasting blood glucose,weight, and body fat mass in a patient with Type 2 diabetes, as compared to a controlg roup. Scientists are trying to tease out whether cinnam on helps with colorectal cancer now. Just outstanding, but wait. A s I mentioned earlier, there are different varieties o f cinnamon. The most popular kind is called Cassia and its found in grocerys tores,and served at coffee shops and restaurants. Its everywhere. G enuine cinnamon,the kind I strongly recommend i s called Ceylon,and you must buy it from nice spice shops,some herbal apothecaries or online. Cassia and Ceylon cinnam on come from two different species. Cassia,while tasty and used by millions of us,has a stronger,harsher tasted compared to Ceylon. Cassia is actually known to contain as mall amount of a moderately toxic component called coumarin. You dont have to w orry about this,but hypothetically,if you took a g inormous dose,it could cause liver and kidney damage; its also known to thin blood,considered a good thing but those of you ona nti-coagulant drugs need to know. Ceylon has a fine texture, tastes lovely,and contains a lot of health-promoting compounds. As we head into fall, s prinkle it on everything because Ceylon cinnamon contains eugenol and terp inoids,which are strong antiviral agents.

There are a number of online tools such as My Family Health Portrait at https://FamilyHistory.hhs.g ov to help you gather and store that information. Family FeaturesThe teen years bring plent y of changes for students,as well as new worries for parents. Smoking is at the top of that list for many parents. Every day in the U.S.,a pproximately 3,600 children between the ages of 12 and 17 start smoking cigarettes,according to the Centers for Disease Control( CDC). That number has plenty of parents looking for ways to help keep their children from starting,too. There are a number of influences that get youngp eople to start smoking, including: Having friends,peers or parents who use tobacco. Linking smoking with a p ositive social image and bonding with a peer group. Seeing tobacco use as a transition to adulthood. Underestimating the health consequences of tobacco use. Not understanding that the nicotine in tobacco is a ddictive. Low self-esteem. Lacking skills to resist i nfluences. What keeps kids and teens f rom smoking? One of the biggest influencers is having strong parental support.H aving conversations about the issue really does have an impact on teensdecisions a bout tobacco use. Here are some tips for talking to your t een: Keep the lines of communication open. Talk on a regular basis. The more you talk about a wide range of issuesw ith your child,the easier it is to talk about specific topics such as tobacco. In general conversation,emphasize all the things your child does well rather than things they dont do well. And demon-s trate respect for your childs opinions. Show youre listeni ng and ask follow-up questions. Talk,dont lecture. Discussions will be received far better than a monologuef rom you. Here are some conversation starters: I understand youve been talking in school about peer pressure and the healthc onsequences of tobacco use. Tell me about some of the things youve learned. If you see smoking portrayed in the media,say I wonder why the director had that guy light up a cigarette in the last scene. What do you think? If you and your child see a young person smoking, use it as an opening by saying something like,How much tobacco use are you seeing in your school? I wonder if its the same as when I was your age. Talk about health consequences. They need to know w hat can happen to them. Tobacco smoke contains m ore than 4,000 chemicals. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse( NIDA),the most dangerous chemicals in cigarette smoke, b esides nicotine,are tar and carbon monoxide. NIDA also states that tar causes lungc ancer,emphysema,and bronchial diseases,and that carbon monoxide causes h eart problems. According to NIDA, h ealth risks can be immediate,affecting breathing,for example. And addiction can occur after smoking as few as 100 cigarettes,according tot he Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Another influencer for adolescents is having a school program that teaches them to identify the social i nfluences of tobacco use, and that teaches them refusal s kills. Thats why many middle schools use the free supplemental teaching materialsk nown as Right Decisions Right Now (RDRNa prog ram sponsored by R. J. Reynolds. RDRN helps educate stud ents about the risk of using tobacco products,helps them build good decision-making s kills,and gives them ways to handle peer pressure. The p rogram is available in an easy-to-use,digital format, which lets educators,com-m unity youth groups,and anyone concerned about r educing youth tobacco use utilize the free materials.

C M Y K By DAVID BAUDER A P Television WriterN EW YORK In an earlier era,the 9.2 million viewers who watched NBCs Revolutionin its regular time slot on televi-s ions premiere week wouldnt impress many tele vision executives. Now,that number is only part of the story. A dd in people who saw the show on DVR playback w ithin the following seven days numbers released by the Nielsen company on M onday and the drama about a suddenly electricity-free world was seen by 14.2 million people. That estimate also i ncludes only a handful of the people who ordered the episode through an ondemand service or who saw it online. P eople arent watching television the way they u sed to,a transition that has accelerated markedly thisf all,making it much harder to judge whether or not a show is successful. s quite stunning,said Andy Durwitz,ABCs chiefs cheduling executive. re seeing all of the audience becoming much more sophisticated with the DVR and making their owns chedules. During the first two weeks of the season,digital video recorder usage is up 30 percent over last season, said David Poltrack,top research executive at CBS. That may settle down,he said. Clearly,the DVR has become an essential tool for people interested in sampling many of the new series that come with a fall season,he said. Now,when the overnight ratings come in,Poltrack cautions,you cant read anything from them. Thats not entirely true. You can usually smell a hit pretty quickly,and the same is true of a dog. Its all those shows in between that are more of a mystery. For the networks,it should teach patience. With extra data to sift through,it may take executives more time to cancel series (only o ne,CBSMade in Jersey,has bit the dust so far this season) and decide whether to extend their initial episode orders,general-l y the first sign that a new show has a real future. Some things about Revolutionmade NBC executives suspect it mayg et a big boost from DVRs, said Jeff Bader,NBCs top s cheduling executive. It appeals to men and scie nce fiction fans,both relatively big DVR users. Its also new; given a choice between shows to watch live or later,a viewer willm ost likely focus on a familiar series first,he said. Shows on ABC and CBS have increased their audiences by an average of 20p ercent when adding in those who watched on tape within a week,said Nielsen,which measures TV audiences. Fox is up 18 percent and NBC 15 percent. The shifts are even more noticeable among younger viewers:ABCs audience within the 18-to-49-yearold demographic increased by 32 percent and CBSby 29 percent,Nielsen said. The live audience for the Emmy-winning comedy Modern Familywas 14.44 million on premiere week. The audience increased to 18.85 million with taped viewing factored in,Nielsen said. ABCs Castleincreased its audience from 10.47 million to 13.84 million. Foxs Glee jumped from 5.18 million to 7.68 million. The weeks most timeshifted shows were actually shown on cable. FXs e pisode of Sons of Anarchy,for example,was seen live by 2.5 million people with its viewership jumping to nearly 6 millionw ith DVR figures added in, Nielsen said. Live or sports programming is the least affected by DVR usage. F or example,NBCs Sunday night football had a l ive audience of 22.76 million,only rising to 22.82m illion with DVR added in. Sometimes there is little science in predicting DVR success beyond popularity. CBSNCIS,usually TVsm ost-watched scripted series,had 20.48 million live viewers for its season premiere,increasing to 24.13 million with DVRu sage added in. The troubled comedy artnershad a small audience live (6.55 million didnt add much (7.25 million after seven days). The environment this year is quite different from the environment last year, which is quite different from the year before, Poltrack said. Every year when we go into the first two weeks,the whole world has changed. Though we are not comm anded to build a tebah i.e. ark,boat,vessel as Noah ( Genesis 6),yet we can learn valuable lessons (Romans 15:4) from him and his faith and Jehovahs grace. Yes, indeed,But Noah foundg race in the eyes of the Lord(Genesis 6:8 First,we must understand what this grace/favor was to Noah. The grace/favor/gift of God to Noah was:1) warning of the coming rain andf lood; 2) the means to escape the flood by the i nstructions to build the boat. Now,Noah had to make a decision to act upon this grace and he did:Thus Noah did; according to allt hat God commanded him, so he did(Genesis 6:22 The Holy Spirit through Hebrews 11:7 gives us this information By faith,Noah,b eing divinely warned of things not yet seen,moved with godly fear,prepared an ark for the saving of his household,by which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness,which is according to faith. Thus,we have a combination of Gods grace and Noahs faith and obedience. The three worked together to save Noah and his family. There was no grace only or faith onlyor obedience only. After the ark was constructed,they then had to make the decision to enter the ark for salvationfrom the flood. They were saved in the ark. Yahweh did not take them by the collar and drop them into the boat but they made a choice to enter by the one door. Lets suppose that Noah acknowledged Gods clear warnings and instructions, but refused to obey what then? Gods grace would have been in vain,useless to Noah and he would have perished in the flood. There are three things that work together for success:the giver,the gift and the receiver. Now consider Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death,but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.Here we have the warning and escape Gods amazing grace (charis through the gift of Jesus,the Messiah. Please observe sev-e ral important facts about this gift. The gift was in Jehovah's eternal plan before time began. (2 Timothy 1:9,10; Ephesians 1:3) Therefore,there is no way one can earn,deserve orm erit this gift. This grace/favor makes salvation a vailable to all people. (John 3:16; Titus 2:11; Hebrews 2:9) But,all people will not accept the gift of salvation. Then Paul and Barnabasg rew bold and said,'It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken to you first; but since you reject it, and judge yourselves unwor-t hy of everlasting life, behold,we turn to the Gentiles(Acts 13:46 When we consider the whole counsel of God,we clearly see a balanced relationship between amazing grace and obedient faith. We have already observed this fact in the saving of Noah and his family from the flood. After Peter and the other apostles proclaimed the gift of salvation through Christ on Pentecost (Acts 2 the believers then asked, Men and brethren,what shall we do?What followed were clear instructions on how to obtain remission of sins and with many other words he testified and exhorted them Be saved from this perverse generation.(Acts 2:40 NKJV Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.(NIV Saves yourselves from this untoward generation.(KJV Save yourselves from this crooked generation.(ASV The apostles understood as well as those baptized this relationship between grace and faith. The 3,000 precious souls accepted the gift of salvation by an obedient, saving faith. The Hebrew writer proclaims that Jesus is t he author of eternal salvation to those who obey Him. ( Hebrews 5:8,9) Obedience to Divine commands do not destroy or eliminate the grace of God,but rather activates it,i.e. Noah and the3 ,000 on Pentecost. The inspired statement through the apostle Paul work out your own salvation with fear and trembling(Philippians 2:12) is in full agreement with amazing grace. Brethren,my hearts desire and prayer to God for I srael is that they may be saved. For I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God,but not according to knowledge. For they beingi gnorant of Gods righteousness,and seeking to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted to the righteousness of God( Romans 10:1-3). Herein is an age old problem that remains alive and well today. The saints in Roman and mankind in general had been informed (Romans 1:16 the gospel of Christ is the power of God to salvation and the gift of salvation is in Christ Jesus. (Romans 6:23 Yet,Israel is not the only one who has gone about establishing their own system of righteousness. All we need to do is scan the religious world and see the many systems/works of men, i.e. sects and denominations. Obedience to Divine commands is not works of men. or I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes,for the Jew first and also for the Greek (Romans 1:16What a profound and simple statement of Gods amazing grace and mans acceptance of that gift though an obedient/saving faith. This power is clearly manifested in the many accounts of conversions of precious souls in Acts. Frank Parker can be contacted at frankparker27@gmail.com.

The conversation ran something like this: Mom,I dont want to go to church! You have to go,Son. But,I dont like to go. Why dont you like to go? Mom,the sermons are b oring,the worship is dull, and the people there dont like me. ell,Son,I know that, but you still have to go. Why do I have to go, M om? Give me just one, good reason. ll give you three,Son: 1. Its the right thing to do. 2 It will do you some good. 3 And,youre the preacher! Sure,it is sometimes tough to attend church services. In fact,one might evenh ave to make plans to attend. However,one might also c hoose to skip church services altogether while reaching into that world-famous bago f excuses just to explain the absences. And,as much as a person might fool some people some of the time,he will never fool God any of the time. God knows where ourh earts are and what we desire to do most (or least! w ith our time. Worshiping God in spirit and truth (John 4:24w ish to do the same is not only the right thing to do, b ut it does a lot of good for those who choose to attend. Hebrews 10:23-25 reads, Let us hold fast the confession of our hope withoutw avering,for He who promised is faithful; and let us c onsider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds,not forsaking our owna ssembling together,as is the habit of some,but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.The Hebrews writer does not discount the importance of worshiping the Almighty when the church assembles,but he does impress upon the reader the need for Gods family to gather together for the pur-p ose of building each other up. And,you cannot build up or be built up if you are not there. Encouragement and mutual edification from one another are some of the most important reasons for attending church services. Why? The answer is simple. It ist ruly a blessing to be in a p lace where you are surrounded by others who love t he Lord and love you,too. Have you been to worship w ith the Lords church lately? If not,give it a try.Youw ill be glad you did. K evins Komments is presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 3 3870.

C M Y K B YBOB GARVER Special to the News-SunIts hard to believe that it wasnt so long ago that Ben Afflecks career was a joke. After his early success with Good Will Hunting, he went on to become an increasingly bland leading man that critics seemed to enjoy picking apart. He was also a fixture in gossip magazines for his alcoholism and troubled relationship with Jennifer Lopez. His professional and personal life collided badly in 2003s Gigli, a film widely recognized as one of the worst of all time and was also blamed for his breakup with costar Lopez. But he turned things around in 2007, reinventing himself as a director with the acclaimed kidnapping mystery Gone Baby Gone. He proved this success was no fluke with 2010s also acclaimed The Town. Now comes Argo, a film so respectable that it has garnered more Oscar buzz than perhaps any other film this season. I wont go so far as to say it deserves an Oscar, but it certainly solidifies Afflecks new-found reputation as a competent and compelling director. The film takes place during the Iran hostage crisis of the 1970s. Iranian militants storm the American embassy in Tehran and overpower most of the buildings employees. However, six people escape and hide out in the home of a nearby Canadian ambassador (Victor Garber). The CIAlearns of the six escapees and brainstorms ideas for how to get them out of the country before they get killed. Specialist Tony Mendez (Ben Affleck) shoots down poor strategies like having the fugitives pretend to be teachers or enabling them to flee the country on bicycles. He decides that it will be much more plausible to have the targets pretend to be part of the production team for a cheesy sci-fi movie. His boss (Bryan Cranston CIAbrass that this overcomplicated plan is the best bad idea we have. The film is clearly trying to turn that particular line into a memorable and popular quote. Mendez gets help from a movie-wise makeup artist (John Goodman tler producer (Alan Arkin). Together they set up a fake production company to halfway legitimize the phony credentials for the refugees. At this point the film detracts from the intense Iran storyline to allow the characters to exchange smart-aleck comments about the film industry. Many will say that these scenes add a refreshing levity to the otherwise serious tone of the film. I say they throw the film off balance, practically forgetting the urgency of the situation. Eventually Mendez does fly out to Iran to rescue the refugees. They arent especially eager to go along with the plan, but once again nobody can think of anything better. I think the objections and mistrust are only in the film for dramatic effect to add an obstacle to the story since the plan actually unfolds rather smoothly. Everybody plays their parts coolly and the few snags are resolved quickly. The action comes down to Mendez and the refugees staying calm as they get through the various checkpoints while the Iranian bad guys recklessly rush after them trying and failing to catch up. It would obviously be impractical for such a trueto-life film to include an explosive final showdown, but its just not that thrilling when the characters do little more than run away. To be sure, Argo is a well-made film, and Affleck deserves a lot of credit for his attention to detail in the dialogue and scenery. But I wouldnt have put so much focus on the Hollywood people or even the CIAagents. To me, the most interesting aspect of the film is the escapees. I want to know how they coped with being trapped in that house knowing that capture and probably death was waiting for them outside? Sadly the film doesnt touch nearly enough on the subject. Argo wastes an opportunity that I think it should have taken, but admittedly it does very well with the storyline it chooses to pursue.

I exercise, eat lots of fruits and vegetables and mostly whole foods. M y problem is I think I may be becoming obsessed. It has becomeh arder and harder to eat away from home. I constantly plan what I'm goingt o eat next. Im still happy, but too much of my time is b eing spent on this. Apparently, theres a disorder similar to anorexiak nown as orthorexia. Its the psychological obsess ion with eating healthy. I dont think I could be classified as an extreme case, but what should I do beforeI become one? Obsessed in Boston DearObsessed: As with a ny obsessive disorder, the first step is realizing and admitting you may haveo ne. Then discuss it with your physician and ask for a referral to a psychologist who specializes in eating disorders. T his is not to say that you have a disorder but because more and more of your time is being devoted to thoughts of food, itw ould be a good idea to check. Too much of a good thing can be harmful if it is taken too far. D earAbby: I am 23 and have one child. I have been m arried for three years, and my husband hasr ecently become physically abusive. He was prosecuted for his actions and pleaded guilty, but he still blames me entirely for the scenarioa nd refuses to accept any responsibility. I fear for the safety of myself and my daughter every day, and I want tol eave him for good. Many of the shelters I have called require that I quit my job, which is something I feel is counterintuitive to establishing a life on my own, so I refuse. That said, I dont make much money, and the money I do make goes toward paying the fine my husband incurred for harming me. Am I aiming too high? I feel the only way to break free from him entirely is to quit my job, but I dont w ant to have to resort to this. What would you advise? Conflicted O ut West Dear Conflicted: I would advise you to take your childa nd get out of there before the next episode of domestic vio-l ence. And, if you truly want to break free entirely from your abuser, that youf ollow to the letter the instructions you receive f rom the people at the domestic violence shelter. And one more thing: Lett he person who incurred the fine pay it himself! DearAbby: I have a question about office microwave etiquette. I work in a building witho ne kitchen for 40 people. Often there is a wait to use t he microwave around lunchtime. Recently I needed to use it and found aw arm packaged meal in there, and no owner a round. I waited five minutes and came back. It was still there as if it had been f orgotten. I decided to place it on the counter with a napkin covering it so I could use the microwave. When Iw as finished, no one appeared to claim it, so I put it back in and went on my way. Did I do the right thing? T here was no way to know whose meal it was. Whats p roper in this situation? Should I have just waited? Hungry in Ithaca, N.Y. DearHungry: You handled the situation appropriately. However, had it been me, I would have left thei tem on the counter so it wouldnt be touched by the other 38 hungry people in your office who also needed to use the microwave.

The filmmakers who adapted it expanded the title to Alex Cross. They might as well have g one for broke and called it yler Perrys Madeas Stab at Expanding Her-His Hollywood Marketability as James Pattersons AlexC ross. Perrys name will draw his fans in. Pattersons namew ill draw his fans in. Theres no trace of Madea in director Rob Cohens adaptation, yett he spirit of the sassy grandma inevitably hangs over the p roject for viewers curious to see Perry playing it straight and dramatic. A lex Cross the man and Alex Cross the movie w ind up suffering for it. Its perfectly reasonable for Perry to try to broaden his enormous popularity beyond the Madea lineage in hiso wn raucous portraits of family life. I s also perfectly reasonable to say that casting Perry as Cross was a bad idea,t hough its not necessarily the worst in a movie built on b ad ideas. Perry has little allure as supposedly brilliant criminal p rofiler Cross. He looks the part of Pattersons big, athletic hero. And no one expects a Morgan Freeman, who played Cross in Kisst he Girls and Along Came a Spider. But Perry is low-key bordering on sleepwalker dull, and the standard-issue cop-v s.-serial-killer story presents Cross as more of a d opey psycho-babbler than a guy whose incisive mindc uts right to the heart of the case. In this scenario, Cross is early on in his career, a star on the Detroit police departm ent along with partner and best pal Thomas Kane (Edward BurnsTheyre tracking a killer code-named Picasso (Matthew Foxw hos working his way up the food chain with murders a nd attempted murders of execs at an international conglomerate, with the bigb oss, Giles Mercier (Jean Reno), clearly the ultimate t arget. Its unclear just how the showy crimes against under-l ings are going to get Picasso closer to his goal, rather than simply alerting a uthorities to put extra security on Mercier. But such is t he hazy thinking of the twisted mind, and such is the hazier thinking of Hollywood hacks who dont care about making sense. I t made enough sense to Patterson, though, a producer on the movie. Director Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) and screenwriters Marc Moss and Kerry Williamson weavei n as bland a home-life as imaginable for Cross, with h is perfect wife (Carmen Ejogo), their perfect kids and his perfect live-in mom (Cicely Tyson). The filmmakers offer a miserly personal life for Kane, whosf eeling his way through a new romance with a fellow detective (Monica Ashe). As the irascible police chief, John C. McGinley looks permanently constipated and wishing he could bea nywhere but here. Unlike Freemans R-rated A lex Cross movies, the grisly crimes are only talking points, the images sanitized t o a Perry-friendly PG-13 level. Cohens strong suit usually is action, but fights, chases and gunplay are mostly a jumble of quickc uts. An opening scene in which Cross literally dodges a bullet a second or more after its fired kind of sums up the action trajectory,w hich eventually devolves from bad police procedural i nto a bad Dirty Harry copycat. Fox plays Picasso like a d rop-out from the Heath Ledgers Joker school of cackling villainy, repeatedly c alling Cross on the phone to toss around dreary taunts.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Friday, October 19, 2012 Q:D o I need to be vaccinated against the flu? A:The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends everyone age 6 months and older receive a flu vaccine. Those who most need immunization: seniors age 65 and older,pregnant women,patients with certain medical conditions,caregivers of patients who develop serious complications from contracting the flu.Q:How does a flu shot work? A :S easonal influenza vaccines combine inactive strains of three flu viruses. The formula, when injected,encourages your immune system to build antibodies that fight infection. The vaccine works against the three most commonly circulating flu viruses:influenza B,the H1N1 A strain and the H3N2 A strain.Q:Do I really need a vaccine every year? A:Yes. Thats because public health officials annually look at which flu viruses will be most prevalent,then set a vaccine formula designed to thwart those particular strains. So the formula can change from year to year. In fact,the 2012-13 vaccine cocktail is different from last years, meaning you could be unprotected if you skip this years shot.Q:What about children? A:Some children 6 months through 8 years of age require 2 doses of influenza vaccine, according to the CDC. Children in this age group who are getting vaccinated for the first time will need two doses. Some children who have received influenza vaccine previously will also need two doses. Your childs health care provider can tell you whether two doses are recommended for your child.Q:When does flu season start? A:It typically begins in October and can last through May, with the season peaking in February. But flu is unpredictable, and seasonal peaks vary by region.Q:Why should I get vaccinated? A:The CDC advises people to b e vaccinated as soon as shots are a vailable,so thell be ready when flu season starts. Many providers b egan receiving vaccines as early as August,as manufacturers are shipping earlier. Shots given now should protect you through the season,and you wont have to worry about supply shortages later. It takes your body two weeks following the vaccine to form flu-fighting antibodies. But even if its later,the CDC suggests you still go ahead and get a shot.Q:What about the new high-dose shot for seniors? A :The Fluzone High-Dose for people older than 65 first became available in 2010. It has four times the antigen of a standard shot to boost the immune response as the body loses the ability to produce antibodies as we age. More side effects have been reported with the high-dose vs. the regular shot. People who h ave severe egg allergies or who had a serious reaction to a standard flu vaccine should not get the high dose.Q:W hat about the nasal spray vaccine? A:This vaccine is different f rom the shots in that it contains a live but weakened version of the flu virus. Healthy people ages 2 to 49 can use the spray. People with egg allergies and serious medical conditions or weakened immune systems and their caregivers should not use this vaccine or should check with a doctor first.Q:How much does it cost? A:Seasonal shots cost around $25 to $35. Prices may be higher for the high-dose and intradermal vaccines.Q:I hate needles! Can I take a flu pill instead? A:Sorry,no. But now there is an intradermal vaccine that uses a pin-prick needle,about 90 percent smaller than the standardm odel. It injects under the skin rather than deep into the muscle, causing less arm-ache afterward. People ages 18 to 64 can have intradermal vaccines.Q:Does Medicare or my insurance cover vaccines? A:Flu shots are covered under Medicare Part B and most private insurance plans. There usually are no out-of-pocket costs to consumers,but ask your provider.Q:Where can I get immunized? A:The majority of people get flu shots from their primary care physicians. Some local health departments also offer them. But many local retailers,drug stores and supermarkets are offering shot programs as well. Most dont require appointments but allow you to make them. Among those with vaccines: Walmart (walmart.com/pharmacy), Walgreens (walgreens.com/pharmacy) and CVS (cvs.com). Not all stores or retailers carry intradermal and high-dose shots,so call first.Q:What are the risks? A:Serious complications from flu vaccines are rare. Common mild problems include:soreness or redness where the shot was given,fever,headache,fatigue and cough. Allergic reaction symptoms include:difficulty breathing, fast heart rate,dizziness or hives. People with severe allergies,especially to eggs,should talk to their doctor before getting a shot.Q:Still have questions? A:Contact the CDC at 800232-4636,or go to cdc.gov/flu.l u season is officially here, and the Flu shots today signs are out in force at pharmacies,supermarkets and bigbox discount stores. Last year was one of the mildest flu seasons on record,said Dr. Lisa Grohskopf,a medical officer with the Centers for Disease Control and Preventions influenza division. But she says consumers shouldnt get complacent; the CDC still recommends everyone older than 6 months be vaccinated. e know the flu is unpredictable,so we cant say what this s eason will be like,Grohskopf said. Federal statistics projected drug manufacturers would produce up to 149 million vaccines for this season. The CDC does not anticipate shortages. About 132 million immunizations were given in 2011-12,covering about 45 percent of adults. More people are getting immunized at the same places where they buy their groceries and fill their prescriptions rather than doctors offices. Many say they like the convenience. Retailers usually are set up to process insurance billing onsite,so customers with coverage or on Medicare pay nothing out of pocket. A CDC report found that in the 2010-11 flu season about 18 percent of adults received their flu shots in stores,while 40 percent went to their doctors office. States regulate how vaccines are given outside of medical settings, and the CDC has no recommendations about the best place to get a shot. We think its fortunate you now can get a flu vaccine in a wide variety of places,Grohskopf said.
