Massey and Washington are the reigning J unior Miss and Miss Avon Park. The two girls not only have their crowns in common, but they share a sad common denominator as well. Both Massey and Washington have had to d eal with a loved one battling heart disease within the past year.

W ashington lost her grandmother,Janet Horsham,in August as a result of difficulties during her heart transplant. They are trying to bring awareness to this issue.

Miss, Jr. Miss AP use status to raise money for worthy cause By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY firstname.lastname@example.orgAVON PARK In a 3-2 vote Tuesday evening the Planning & Zoning Advisory Board recommended the city council deny Yudith Fernandezs application for a variance regarding parking at her proposed boarding house. Her property is the historic Touchton building at 1 W. Main St. This is a controversial issue. On the one hand,Fernandez who has been trying to open her proposed business for months,has been met with new demands each step of the way. She pointed out to the P&Z advisory board,she had fulfilled every demand every step of the way. Part of the wary response to her business is that through Fern and Fern Corp. and Fern Finance, Fernandez owns 21 properties in Highlands County. One of those properties is the Sharon Motel at 2180 U.S. North in Avon Park,an establishment that is neglected and in disrepair. However,when accused of multiple code violations at the P&Z meeting,City Manager Julian Deleon said Fernandez had no outstanding code violations. Her plan to turn the second floor of her building into a 16room boarding house for migrant agricultural workers is opposed by many in the community. Tuesday evening Fernandez was asking for a variance from the onstreet parking code. Speaker after speaker Tuesday night got up demanding the board vote against giving Fernandez that variance.

C M Y K By SAMANTHA GHOLAR firstname.lastname@example.orgS EBRING Investigations were recently conducted and have been concluded into twoS ebring Fire Department i ssues. City Administrator Scott Noethlich shared letters regarding the two incidents and investigations that shed light onto what has been allegedly going on at the c itys fire department. A racial discrimination investigation was headed by Mayor George Hensley,CityA ttorney Bob Swaine and City Human Resources Manager Charlotte Mann. A ccording to a letter written by Hensley to Noethlichf ollowing the wrap up of the investigation,the complaint was deemed unfounded. Firefighter David Avila was the center of the investigation. Avila contacted city o fficials on Jan. 11 via mail. In his letter Avila stated,I h ave been a loyal and respectful member of the Sebring Fire Department for several years now. I dont like being the one who firsts peaks up about this but I feel l ike it has impacted my life ... Chief (Brad me feel like an unequal member of this department through his racial actions. A vila went on to describe details of the things that heh as witnessed in the department that he feels were disc rimination and or racist. Avila described an instance w hen Batz walked through the floor I just mopped and looks down at me without saying a word.The lettera lso stated that Batz ,at one time,kept a noose in his office. T he presence of a noose w as confirmed by many firefighters when questioned by Hensley.The object had been in and out of the firehouse over a two-year time frame due to the moving of offices and a temporary trailer, a ccording to the investigation report. Avila stated on Feb. 4, 2013 that the noose was in a closetin Batzoffice. The object,which was tied in a standard training rope man-n er on the wall,according to the SFD employees,was notf ound by Hensley when he searched Batzs office. H ensley found no traces of a rope of any type during his investigation. Firefighters stated that Batz had not disp layed the object in a racially motivated way or otherw ise made a racial comment or gesture to it. According to Hensley and Noethlichs report,Avila told city officials that he did notf ind offense in the presence o f a noose initially,but he became offended when a colleague told him what the object meant. The investigation continu ed with digging into comments being allegedly madet owards Avila by not only Batz but fellow firefighters. H ensley report stated that Avila was not taking thec omments too seriously but that firefighters may be racially insensitive,but believes Chief Batz isn onetheless wrong for allowing it to happen. Firefighters agreed that j oking and poking fun at one a nother on duty is a common occurrence and that Avila is usually joking right along with the others. After further investigation, speaking individually with other firefighters and followu p interviews with Avila,the citys position remained that Avilas allegations of racial discrimination are unfound-e d. Hensley stressed to Noethlich that the city would not tolerate any racial dis-c rimination. As a result of the investigat ion,the Sebring Fire Department will undergo e ducational courses on diversity training in an attempt to ensure the discrimination policy is upheld. The classes a re currently being scheduled by Mann. N oethlich spoke about the investigation and what steps the city is taking next. I think there have been some misperceptions. Oncey ou look at things with a cert ain pair of glasses on they are going to look different, Noethlich said. As for Avila I dont know,I cant really say how he is doing. I donth ave a good read as the whether he is okay or not att he fire department,but I believe that he doesnt really w ant to speak up anymore about any of this. L ocal Union Chapter 3210 President Ross Edmunds spoke about the situation stating that Avila had plenty he wanted to talk about. He (Avila) does want to talk,they (city m ake things seem differently than they really are. I know he wants to talk,hes afraid ... Theres something going on here and the city just s wept it right under the rug, Edmunds said. If this was a serious investigation why w ouldnt you question everyb ody on the department? They went out of their way to m ake this look like a perfect i nvestigation and do a good j ob but in reality everybody in the department is looking around like what in the worldi s going on? E dmunds stated that the n oose incident was a big enough incident that someone took down the noose.E dmunds also stated that A vila will no longer go into B atzoffice. The union followed Avilas racial discrimination claim with a hostile working environment claim, which was also deemed unfounded. Though Edmunds could not speak of the other details surrounding t he investigation (he was not q uestioned) he knows of o ther instances where the work environment has had racial discrimination undert ones. I hope somebody out there cares enough about this community to stand up for whats right no matter what the timeline of these things happening are,Ross said. Being a firefighter is an amazing job; its sad that its been turned into somethings o stressful and difficult.

Corrections Continued on page 8A B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY email@example.comSEBRING As a result of an extended p eriod without rain,the aquifer serving Highlands County has dropped significantly s ince Jan. 18,2013. On Jan. 25,the aquifer stood at 1.43 feet, down approximately a quarter of an inch from the week before. By Feb. 6,it had fallen to 0.17 feet,down 1 .15 inches from Feb. 1. Thursdays update by the Southwest Florida Water Management District reports the aquifer is in the negative range,at 0.68 inches. The bad news is normal fluctuation is between one to eight inches. The good news is,the aquifer is higher than i t was a year ago at this time,-1.82 inches below the minimum normal. A s for rain from Jan. 1-23,the region received only 0.18 inches of rain. In the first week of February,there was virtually no rainfall at all,just 0.01 inches. In the week since,not counting Thursday,only 0.06i nches of rain fell. For a sense of context,the historic record of rain fall for this time of year is 2.59 inches. Water conservation remains important.

This is a position that is filled each yearb y a local individual who has had a journey with canc er,and Baker has had a remarkable journey. Born in Cincinnati, B aker moved to Florida the night she got married in 1 968,and lived in Miami.

More than one and a half million families have positively changed their financial future through Dave Ramses Financial Peace University (FPU 2012,the now nine-week course provides families and individuals with practical tools to gain control of their finances and set themselves up for long-term financial success.

C M Y K Those who survived the fall of R ome might disagree or those who lived through plagues and wars lasting 100 years. The world has always been dangerous,and always will be. Even if no one ever picks up a weapon again,t here will be tornadoes,earthquakes, hurricanes,landslides,tidal waves and f loods to survive,not to mention automobile accidents and falling in the bathtub. H arsh as it is to say,there is no such thing as being entirely safe. I s when terrible things happen, like the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School,that our vulnerability cant be denied; when the first and most common reaction is the wantt o curl up at the back of a closet. As adults,however,it is our respons ibility to clear our heads and decide what to do to keep our children safer. We mean really safer. W e do not believe putting armed guards in schools will keep harm from h appening for several reasons. A guard cannot be at every entrance to a school. A single individual can easily be out-maneuvered,out-gunned or out-manned. There are twisted people whose g oal is to die by cop.Adding armed guards may only excite maniacs to a ction just for the adrenaline rush. We are most opposed to armed guards,however,because there areb etter and more sensible things to do. Schools are still the safest place for c hildren. In the first place,the odds against an attack are very low; administrators are keenly aware of danger and have created plans to respond to any attack; and teachers have shownt ime and time again they are willing to die protecting their students. T he object is to keep violence away from children. Positioning cameras in parking lots a nd at approaches to school entrances, wired to monitors inside the school, g ives those inside an early warning. T hat,however,certainly isnt all that needs to be done. If we are to truly make a difference,there are bigger problems that need to be solved,one of the biggest being mental health care. Tina Dupuy pointed out in her guest column in our Wednesday edition,that the federal Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms Agency is currently underfunded,and making due without a full-time director. This means u nscrupulous gun dealers have almost f ree rein to sell weapons without c hecking a customers background,or s elling to straw purchasers who move guns along to anyone who wants one. We need to halt the sale of assault rifles and cartridge clips with enoughb ullets to kill dozens of people. These w eapons and accessories were not d esigned for hunting or target practice. The time has come for a serious d iscussion and legislative action. If w e are sincere about protecting our children we have to make sacrifices although living without assault weapons can hardly be called a sacri-f ice.

He said that his proposals would not add one dime to the deficit. He is right. They are going to add a lot more thano ne. I know that the President gives lip service to not growing the government,but his actions speak a lot loud-e r than his words. When he lists a number of things he wants government to doe ven though there is no budget and we are deeply in the red,you have to asky ourself what hes really thinking. T he Republicans arent doing much better in this area. They also say all kindso f things about wanting to cut spending,but I dont see t he will to do it. It seems that Mitt Romnes loss in November sucked all the fight right out of them,with a couple of exceptions. C ounty Commissioner Don Elwell said on F acebook recently that if he could he would lock all the senators and representativesi n the chambers until they passed a balanced budget. T his makes more sense than anything said last night; its too bad that we cant really d o it. If I sound cynical I admit I am. It hasnt helped that ve spent a good part of the day thinking about this sub-j ect,trying to figure out how to turn my ponderings into a coherent column. This is not an uplifting subject to be spending a lot of brainpowero n. Thus,I am cranky. Why is it so hard for our l eaders in Washington to grasp certain monetaryt ruths?The president says we cant cut our way to prosperity. Does he really think well get there by spending money we donth ave? At some point our debts are going to overwhelm us unless we take steps to cut them down. But our leaders dont s eem worried about it. They just raise the debt ceiling, the equivalent to taking out another credit card to pay off the interest on the ones we have. If I did this with my finances,I would be called irresponsible. In Washington its standardo perating procedure. When are we going to learn that were going to have to make some tough choices in the short run top revent a disaster down the line? And the choices get harder the longer we wait tom ake them. Dont get me wrong. I think we should pay ourd ebts. And I think there are some legitimate things that t he federal government needs to be doing and getting money for. But theb loated monstrosity we currently have in Washington b ears little resemblance to the central government our Founding Fathers had in mind when they crafted the Constitution over 200 yearsa go. Most of our politicians s eem unwilling to face the ugly truth we cant afford to do everything we ared oing.Cuts and changes are going to have to be made at s ome point,or else we may well go down the same road Greece is traveling. And that i s one trip Id like to skip, thank you very much. I really wanted this column to be a snarky look at Washington and their versiono f sticking to a budget. Something that you would read and chuckle over as I poked fun at our leaders and their unthrifty ways. F or some reason the humor of the situation is e scaping me this week. Maybe because our leaderss eem so deliberately blind to the facts. Or they think we are. But if you see the funny side,drop me a line and let me know.After thinkinga bout this all day,I could use the laugh.

Guest columns are the opinion of the w riter, not necessarily those of the staff of the News-Sun. A lot to consider in childrens safety No simple solution to nuclear messEditor: We are at the beginning of the process of shutting down older nuclear power plants; a job easier said than done. Because you cannot just shut down and lock up all the windows and doors,lock everything up tight and walk away with some feeling of security. Where will all the waste go? Where will all the cracked cement go? The plants are falling apart from the radiation eating it up from the inside. Where will all the radioactive metal go? We do have a few choices. One is to hire guards to watch over a decaying plant and keep people out especially adventurous kids. But, how will you manage to keep all the mice and other critters out? In no time at all you will have radioactive mice running around contaminating our house pets and plants. Another thing that can be done is to bury the entire thing in concrete like in Chernobyl. That concrete shell is now cracking and pollution is leaking out into the ground. There appears to be no simple solution to the mess that the nuclear industry has created. The Japanese are now struggling with this dilemma with their disabled nuclear power plants in Fukushima. Irene Hasapes SebringUnintended consequences Editor: When Woodrow Wilson got us in World War I do you really think he knew that would give rise to Communist Russia who helped start World War II and that would spread to China and would lead to the Cold War and that would give us the Korean War,then Cuba,then the Vietnam War and the vacuum it created in the Middle East,which gave us multiple conflicts there, which gave us 1991 Gulf War,then the 9-11 attack, then the war in Afghanistan then the second Gulf War. This President is starting Class War.What will be the unintended consequences of this war? Examples of this war are the constant attacks with help of the media on successful people and companies saying they dont pay their fair share. Why is an athlete or movie star or rock star who makes $10 or $20 million a year and fly in their private jets held in high esteem,but a business executive who makes the same money but has created 10,000 jobs,he is evil rich. Makes no sense to me unless you are just vote grabbing. What is the definition of air share. Are these just focus group words that no one can be against. Where is the media to ask and how dumb is the electorate not to demand the definition. No one knows the unintended consequences of this class war so maybe it is best not to start the war in the first place. Thomas Lanfier SebringFundraiser did not take placeEditor: We,at Wredes Wildlife Rehabilitation Center Inc., would like to thank all the sponsors who donated items to the fundraiser golf tournament. We also want to thank all the sponsors who paid for tee and green signs that were to be placed on the golf course. We want to thank all the Wredes volunteers who helped with setting up the event; it was hard work for everyone involved. I also want to thank everyone who was going to help at the golf tournament to make it a success. This was going to be the first fundraiser golf tournament. The money raised from this tournament was going to be used to build two eagle cages and to keep the center open for three more months One of the eagle cages was going to be for Thunder,our mascot here at the wildlife center. However,a decision was made by (golf course management) and only by them, that the tournament was canceled. So there was no fundraiser golf tournament. They did not even contact David Wrede or anyone at Wredes Wildlife. I did not know of the cancellation until Friday afternoon when I called to make sure everything was going good on our part and that we from Wredes would be there along with Thunder,the Bald Eagle. Wredes Wildlife even had to make our word good and pay for the tee signs that were going to be used in the tournament. We will be out $102 in money that the wildlife center did not have to spend. I want to thank the ones at (the golf course unprofessional way that they worked with us. I only hope that other nonprofit organizations (501c3 like Wredes Wildlife Rehabilitation Center Inc. will think twice before they have a fundraiser at (the golf course) and even the golfers who play there will try to understand how the country club is being managed. David Wrede SebringCollege Drive should not be de facto linkEditor: The Highlands County commission is scheduled to take action to authorize additional steps toward completing the construction of Phase III of the Sebring Parkway. To date,plans call for the use of College Drive as the de facto link between U.S. 27,the Sebring Parkway,and Memorial Drive. A traffic study conducted on behalf of South Florida State College (SFSCws that using College Drive in this manner will substantially change the nature of traffic on College Drive. The District Board of Trustees and the administration of SFSC oppose the use of College Drive as the de facto link between U.S. 27,the Sebring Parkway,and Memorial Drive. Both the Highlands Countys current and year 2030 road functional classi fications define College Drive at the lowest level of use,a minor collector. In those same plans,the count y defines all the roads for which College Drive would then be the connector at higher use functions:U.S. 2 7 a major arterial; Sebring Parkway a minor arterial; and Memorial Drive presently a minor arterial b ut future use as a minor collector. The use of College Drive as the de facto link between these higher use roads appears on its face to be contrary to Highlands Countys own Comprehensive Plan Transportation Element. On e suggestion is to go ahead and extend the Sebring Phase III all the way to U.S 27 north of Lake Lelia as already shown on future county plans. The county should not try to make College Drive an intermedi ate term expressway. Joe Wright Vice Chairman District Board of Trustees South Florida State College

Earlier,in response to these parking concerns, Fernandez made arrangements for off-street parkingi n a vacant lot. That lot,however,is well down the block f rom the building. Some individuals worry boarding house residents wont park thereb ecause they would have to walk. Residents could be parked there (on the streeto or three days,said Carl Cool,whose business is further west on Main Street. This is bad for Avon Park. Other objections revealed t hemselves during the evening. Jim Barnard,a candidate f or the city council in 2012, said,e have many schools a nd churches in the area. Thell just be walking up and down the street. I worrya bout our children. Others were too,one man rising to say he had changed h is mind about the boarding house,of which he had been i n favor. I am now totally, 100 percent against it,he said. I do have a daughter. How is this a betterment, another speaker asked. Wen eed restaurants and businesses on Main Street. Boarding house people would live downtown; they would be customers,board member David Cloud replied. He repeatedly said that as ab usiness in an historic building,city code clearly said F ernandez was entitled to an exemption regarding parking, because no provisions forp arking had been made when the commercial building was b uilt. Jean Jordon,another member of the board,disagreed. The building is not really commercial,she said. It is for her,but is really a resid ence.Therefore,she added, no exemption was allowed. M ulti-residential buildings have to provide a specified amount of off-street parking per living space. At one point Fernandez a nd Jordon got into a heated discussion regarding the past use of the Touchton building. If the Touchton building had once housed residents, Fernandez argued,it should qualify for a parking grandfa-t her exemption,like the Jacaranda. F ernandez,citing material at the Historical Society,said the second floor of 1 W. MainS t. had once been residential. Im 80 years old and its n ever been residential in all that time,Jordon said. The building has always beeno ffices. There is no precedent of people living there. Fernandez replied she read i t in a book at the Historical Society. J ordon admitted a book she helped write with Leoma Maxwell years ago was not well fact-checked and filled with errors. Fernandez hadb ad information,she said,but that didnt change anything. The code was the code. re trying to bring (the city) back to the charming town it was before,Jordan said. D eleon said according to city code the matter was m oot. A building has to have been uninterruptedly residential,he said. Even if peopleh ad once lived in the Touchton Building,they left l ong ago. 1 W. Main St., therefore,did not qualify for a grandfather clause. I n the end,Jordan made the motion to refuse Fernandezs request for a p arking variance. Paul Miller and board chair Roger G urganus voted with Jordon. David Cloud and Rebecca Jaramillo voted against her motion. The matter now comes b efore the city council, which has the final say on the matter.

I saw you sing through your eyes and that is great. You have a greatb ubbly personality; you should watch your enunciation when you sing though. You need to enunciate your words a little better,but other than that you g ot it going on. Vassell admitted her nerves g ot the best of her,which lead to her unusually short performance,but judges heard just enough to encourage her to return this week.

Alberto Morales was shot shortly after midnight when officers,with assistance froma police helicopter,spotted him in a wooded area near a lake in North Texas,Grapevine police Sgt. Robert Eberling said. Two hours earlier,officers responded to a report that jewelry and mens clothing had been stolen during a break-in at a home near where Morales was found. Eberling said police officers and U.S. marshals were trying to apprehend Morales when he was shot,but he declined to say whether the fugitive had a weapon or made any threats toward them. He said Morales was still wearing part of his prison-issued jumpsuit as well as jogging pants,but Eberling said he couldt comment on whether the stolen clothing and jewelry was found with him. The residents arrived home around 10:30 p.m. Friday to discover the burglary at their home and called law enforcement officials, Eberling said. The 42-year-old Morales escaped Monday at a Wal-Mart store parking lot in Grapevine,a community near the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. Police said he used a sharp piece from his eyeglasses to stab a Miami-Dade detective who was transferring him by car to Nevada,where Morales was to serve a sentence of 30 years to life after being convicted of a sexual assault.

C M Y K By MARCIA DUNN A P Aerospace WriterC APE CANAVERAL A space rock even bigger than the meteor that exploded like an atom bomb over Russia could drop out of the skyu nannounced at any time and wreak havoc on a city. And Hollywood to the contrary, there isnt much the worlds scientists and generals can doa bout it. But some former astronauts want to give the world a fighting chance. There hopeful Fridays cosmic coincidence E arths close brush with a 150-foot asteroid,hours after t he 49-foot meteor struck in Russia will draw attention to the dangers lurking ino uter space and lead to action,such as better detect ion and tracking of asteroids. After today,a lot of people will be paying attention, said Rusty Schweickart,whof lew on Apollo 9 in 1969, helped establish the planetp rotecting B612 Foundation and has been warning NASA for years to put more musclea nd money into a heightened asteroid alert. E arth is menaced all the time by meteors,which are chunks of asteroids or cometst hat enter Earths atmosphere. But many if not most of them are simply too small t o detect from afar with the tools now available to a stronomers. The meteor that shattered over the Ural Mountains was estimated to be 20 times more powerful than the atom-i c bomb dropped on Hiroshima during World War II. It blew out thousands of windows and left more than 1,000 people injured in Chelyabinsk,a city of 1 million. And yet no one saw itc oming; it was about the size of a bus. This is a tiny asteroid, said astronomer Paul Chodas, who works in NASAs Near-E arth Object program in Pasadena,Calif. It would be very faint and difficult to detect not impossible,but difficult. A s for the three-timeslonger asteroid that hurtled by Earth later in the dayF riday,passing closer to the planet than some communications satellites,a stronomers in Spain did not even discover it until a year a go. That would have been too late for pre-emptive action such as the launcho f a deflecting spacecraft if it had been on a collision c ourse with Earth. Asteroid 2012 DA14,as it is known,passed harmlessly within 17,150 miles of Earth, zooming by at 17,400 mph,o r 5 miles per second. Scientists believe there are a nywhere from 500,000 to 1 million near-Earthasteroids comparable in size toD A14 or bigger out there. But less than 1 percent have a ctually been spotted. Astronomers have catalogued only 9,600 of them,of which n early 1,300 are bigger than 0.6 miles. Earths atmosphere gets hit with 100 tons of junk every day,most of it the size ofs and,and most of it burning up before it reaches the ground,according to NASA. These fireballs happen about once a day or so,but we just dont see them b ecause many of them fall over the ocean or in remote a reas. This one was an exception,NASAs Jim Green, director of planetary science, said of the meteor in Russia. A 100to 130-foot asteroid e xploded over Siberia in 1908 and flattened 825 s quare miles of forest,while the rock that is believed to have wiped out the dinosaurs6 5 million years ago was a monster 6 miles across. T he chances of Earth getting hit without warning by one of the big ones are extremely low,so low that its ridiculous. But the smaller ones are quite different, Schweickart said. He warned: If we get hit by one of them,i s most likely we wouldnt have known anything about it before it hit. Chodas said the meteor strike in Russia is likeM other Nature is showing us what a small one a tiny o ne,really can do. All this points up the need f or more money for tracking of near-Earth objects,according to Schweickart and the f ormer space shuttle and station astronaut who now heads u p the B612 Foundation,Ed Lu. A few years ago, Schweickart and others recommended NASA launch a$ 250 million-a-year program to survey asteroids and work u p a deflection plan. After 10 years of cataloging,the annual price tag could drop to $75m illion,they said. Unfortunately,NASA n ever acted on any of our recommendations,he lamented. So the result of it is that i nstead of having $250 million a year and working on this actively,NASA now has $20 million. ... Its peanuts. Congress immediately w eighed in on Friday. odays events are a stark reminder of the need to invest in space science,said Rep. Lamar Smith,R-Texas,chair-m an of the House science, space and technology comm ittee. He called for a hearing in the coming weeks. B ill Cooke,head of the Meteoroid Environments Office at NASAs Marshall S pace Flight Center in Huntsville,Ala.,said the s pace agency takes asteroid threats seriously and has poured money into looking for ways to better spot them. Annual spending on asteroid-d etection at NASA has gone from $4 million a few years a go to $20 million now. ASA has recognized that asteroids and meteoroidsa nd orbital debris pose a bigger problem than anybody a nticipated decades ago, Cooke said. Schweickarts B612 Foundation named after the asteroid in Antoine deS aint-Exuperys Le Petit Prince has been unwilling to wait on the sidelines and is putting together a privately funded mission tol aunch an infrared telescope that would orbit the sun to hunt and track asteroids. Its need cannot be underestimated,Schweickart warned.R eal life is unlike movies such as Armageddonand Deep Impact.Scientistsw ill need to know 15,20 or 30 years in advance of a killer rocks approach tou ndertake an effective asteroid-deflection campaign,he s aid,because it would take a long time for the spacecraft to reach the asteroid for ag ood nudge. Thats why we want to f ind them now,he said. As Chodas observed Friday,s like a shooting gallery here. Associated Press writer Alicia Chang in Los Angeles con-t ributed to this story.

By JENNIFER KAY Associated PressK EY LARGO While hunters stalked the elusive Burmese python through Floridas Everglades over the past month,state and federalw ildlife officials set traps for other animals menacing native wildlife in a fragile ecosystem. The python gets most of the attention in Floridas animal kingdom and is accused of decimating populations of native mammals in the Everglades,but wildlife officials say other species including feral cats,blackand-white tegu lizards and Cuban tree frogs pose equally serious threats. And while a state-organized Python Challenge was held this year,a Kitty Cat Challenge or Lizard Chase is unlikely. Killing or capturing feral cats would be controversial,and other species lack the daring appeal of pythons. A Cuban Tree Frog Challengewouldnt get anyone excited. Im saying that in the context of understanding how humans respond to things,said Frank Mazzotti,a University of Florida professor of wildlife ecology who is helping the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission with the python hunt. State wildlife officials say the monthlong python hunt that ended Sunday was a success in raising awareness about invasive species,even though the number of snakes killed idled at 50 in the hunts last days. The final tally will be announced at an awards ceremony Saturday. Cash prizes will be awarded to the hunters who bagged the longest python and killed the most snakes. No one knows for sure how many pythons live in the Everglades. Wildlife officials estimate about 10,000 to 100,000,but thats smallc ompared with the several million feral and free-ranging cats believed to be stalking through Florida. Those cats kill several mill ion wild animals in Florida each year,hunting even when there regularly fed,state officials say.At particular risk are small mammals and migratory birds that pass through the suburban areas where cats roam. Food laid out for cats also can attract raccoons and other wildlife, which can bring disease or disrupt nearby turtle and bird nests. For the most part,the state leaves feral cat control to local authorities,some of whom promote managing cat populations through spaying or neutering but still allow the cats to roam. State and federal officials discourage such trap-neuterreturn programs because they dont protect native wildlife. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service last month finalized a plan that includes setting traps for cats and other predators in national wildlife refuges in the Florida Keys, where cats are known to pounce on the dwindling populations of two endangered species,the Key Largo wood rat and the Lower Keys marsh rabbit. Those mammals have lost habitat to development in the Keys,but predation by cats is their highest source of mortality,said Phillip Hughes,an ecologist with the federal wildlife agency in the Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges Complex,comprising four refuges that stretch from the waters off Key West to where Key Largo meets the Everglades. Native wildlife caught in the traps will be released,but invasive species will be euthanized. Pythons not Floridas only invasive animal problem

B y DAN HOEHNE email@example.comSEBRING For some, only a certain college will do, whether it be from a family legacy or a rooting allegien-c e, though a course of study isnt certain. For others, the options are open, and their search is to f ind the best fit for their objective. F ormer Blue Streak soccer s tandout Heather Bloemsma is in that latter group, and she a virtual plethora of options as to where to play. Thanks to her performances at Sebring and in travel ball, which earned her a place in the 2nd Annual PostYourT North South All-Star match coming in early March, and a brief time on a scouting website, her name and ability got out there and Bloemsma had dozens upon dozens of offers coming in. Some schools were making it a point to call on a weekly basis, older sister and former college player herself, Jessica said. But in sifting through the cavalcade of invitations, one thing kept coming up that wasnt finding a match. Whereas many high school seniors, up through their first couple or three years of college, arent sure the path they want to take, academically, Bloemsma has her sights set on a degree in Special Education. The thing is, even if I forgot about playing and went to a school like Florida, they dont have a four-year program for it, she said. I s more of a general education program, and then a fifth year where the concentration is then on Special Education. But NCAADivision II E rskine College in Due West, SC did have a four-yeard egree program, and they just happened to be one of those schools shed been hearing from. Familiar with the ar ea from her time working up there at Camp Joy, her visit to Erskine served as a reminder. The scenery is amazing on campus and around South Carolina, she said. All red brick buildings, big, beautiful trees and the grass is so green. Meeting with the coach and this past years team captains from the Flying Fleet, who play in the Carolinas Conference, the ever-hard working Bloemsma got the feeling she was welcome. Their coach is from Scotland and I really enjoyed his accent, even if he was hard to follow sometimes, she giggled. But he seems like a very aggresive coach, they type who will put the peope in who work for it, r egardless of your year. And the captains were really nice, and you could tell they were hard workers. Her time with the Bl ue Streaks saw her perform predominantly on defense, with even a brief stint in goal for a portion of a game this past season. Bloemsmas path leads to Erskine News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Tyrone Perry found a rare clear path to the hoop to score on this floater Thursday night. By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgAVON PARK This is playoff basketball, you win or your season is done, Avon Park first-year head coach Marty OHora said after Thursdays 75-38 Tampa Catholic win ended his squads season in the Class 4ARegional Quarterfinals. If you dont play smart from the start, a team like this is going to bury you, fast. Which is pretty much how it played out in the Red Devil gym as some big-stage jitters paved the way to a number of early mistakes, and Crusader scores. e played a little scared and had 12 turnovers in the first half, OHora said. And about 10 of those were right near midcourt, which Tampa Catholic turned into points. Alfred Brown had four points in the opening quarter, but Avon Park only managed another jumper from Tyrone Perry and two Steven Roberts free throws. Tampas Isiah Thomas, meanwhile, scored nine on his own over the opening eight minutes, and Chivarsky Corbett added seven to stake the visitors to a 19-8 lead. Perry would open the second-quarter scoring with a floater from the left, though Crusader guard Thomas Dziagwa answered it with a three. Sam Harris then hit a jumper for Tampa Catholic, and Roberts hit two at the line to help keep Avon Park within relative reach. Thomas added to his scoring total with a trey, but Perry got those points back with a free throw and a score off of a Recarus Burley steal to make it a 27-15 game. But that would be as close as the Devils would be the rest of the night. The Crusaders would soon blow it open, scoring the rest of the points before the break, 13 in all, to take a 4015 lead at halftime. The scoring run extended to 20, with Tampa opening the third with seven straight, before Brown got the Devils back on the board with a drive. Corbett would score the next two buckets however, and the Crusaders lead 51-17. e only had one starter back from last years team, so this was the first experience with this sort of pressure for a lot of these guys, OHora said. It wasnt until midway through the third that they were able to get into it and start playing well. They did pick it up at that point, matching Tampa over the rest of the quarter, with 11 points apiece. But it did little to actually get them back in the game. A7-1 tilt to open the fourth pushed the lead to an even 40 and got the running clock started on its trek toward the inevitable. Though Avon Park did get a couple of highlights down the stretch with Jovan Pratt elevating for an impressive tip-in and Travis Lawton exploding on a break for a throw-down dunk that gave the home crowd a shot of excitement. s a tough way to end the season, but we had a lot of positive during this season, OHora said. We won district, went undefeated in the district during the season and were really able to turn a lot of things around within the team. ere losing a couple of seniors, but well pretty much have everyone back, he continued. I told them to take some time off, get basketball off their minds for the next couple of weeks. Then well start getting back into it, get ready for summer ball and work to take another step next year Devils drubbed, season ends See SOCCER, Page 4B News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHNE Above: Sebrings Chris DeJesus has his arm raised in triumph after topping Mike Aroyo for his second win of the day Friday at the FHSAA State Wrestling Finals at the L akeland Center.

B y DAN HOEHNE email@example.comLAKELAND Things started off in strong fashion for the Highlands County Eight at the FHSAAState Wrestling Finals at the Lakeland Center Friday, with five of the combatants claim-i ng victories in the opening r ound. And two of those three losses would have a chance in the wrestleback round to continue on their path toward the medal stand. Sebrings TyJohnson, however, wasnt one of them. His leg was locked when he was taken down and he hurt his hamstring pretty bad, Blue Streak head coach Josh Miller said. Ahard pill to swallow, having to withdraw due to injury in his first appearance at this penultimate event, but the junior has another year ahead of him to build on this experience. Avon Parks Bernard C harles, also a junior making his first appearance at State, lost a major decision in his opening match and came ups hort in his wrestleback attempt, leaving him with a c hance to take the experience as a building block next seas on as well. Not having another chance a t it is Sebring senior Nathan Franklin, who lost two close decisions Friday, totaling five points between them. s tough, Miller said. But you know, he came so close to getting here last year, its great that he was able to make it to State in his last year. That itself is an accomplishment for him to have. The second round of Fridays matches proved tougher for the remaining five as they went 2-3 in their respective weight classes. Avon Park freshman Dre Neeley and senior Jose Torres each took two-point losses in the Class 1A113and 120-pound classes, respectively. Neeley was on the short end of an 8-6 decision to Cardinal GibbonsDominick Gibson, while Torres lost 6-4 Tampa Bay Christians Ty Lucas. Red Devil senior Johnny Baldridge, after a 12-10 shootout win in his opening match, couldnt solve Jupiter Christians Elijah Cleary in Four of eight alive at State See STATE, Page 4B

Andrews Allstate takes two in Sebring 70s B y BARRYFOSTER Special to the News-SunSEBRING Officials of t he American Le Mans Series have made a couple of a nnouncements that will mean even more excitement at this years 61st running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring fueled by Fresh From Florida. First comes word that Extreme Speed Motorsports famous for their Tequila Patron colored Ferraris will move to prototypes for 2013. Scott Sharp reportedly has finalized plans for a two-car HPD ARX-03b P2 program. Im very proud that ESM will move to the P2 class, effective immediately, said Sharp. We enjoyed our three-year run in the GTclass with Ferrari. If the GTclass is a factory-supported class and you are not a full manufacturer entry, everything falls on the shoulders of the team. Sharp, who was the 2009 ALMS P1 class champion, said that moving to P2 is a new chapter for ESM and a homecoming of sorts for Tequila Patrn. He called the move a terrific opportunity to learn and develop the P2 car. The first car, purchased from reigning FIAWorld Endurance Championship s eries LMP2 champ Enzo Potolicchio, worked out earl ier this week at the Sebring International Raceway and w ill debut at this years 12 Hours. It also is being reported that ESM has ordered a brand-new second chassis that is scheduled to be delivered in time for the ALMS season-opener here. The driver roster lists all four of its current pilots including Sharp, Johannes van Overbeek, Guy Cosmo and Ed Brown. Interestingly enough, the ESM appearance at the ALMS Winter Test at Sebring featured its two Ferrari F458 Italias, which had been upgraded to 2013-spec. The announcement also could mean another team may re-join the competition. Officials at Level 5 Motorsports, now say they will re-evaluate their announcement to withdraw its planned effort this year due to lack of entries. Analysts have speculated that should Level 5 re-commit, that could result in a domino effect, with as many as a four-car HPD ARX-03b battle for this years P2 championship. Additional entries, including the already confirmed G reaves Motorsport Zytek Z11SN Nissan and potentiall y two others from Europe, could be on the grid for S ebring In other news, BMW Motorsport and BMWTeam RLLhave rolled out their new BMWZ4 GTE which also is expected to run in anger at this years 12 Hour classic. Obviously I am very excited to enter this new year with the BMWZ4 GTE. There is a lot of enthusiasm in the team for the new car said team principal and former 12 Hour winner Bobby Rahal. There will be a development period involved but ultimately I see no reason why we cant be competitive with the great competition that exists in the GTcategory in the ALMS. Although he allowed, in many respects, it might be a development year, Rahal pointed to the teams driver talent. They include the two new exciting additions with Maxime Martin, who will share the No. 55 car with veteran and former Sebring winner Bill Auberlen, and John Edwards who will drive the No. 56 car with another veteran, Joey Hand.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comIn girls tennis action earlier in the week, the Lady Blue Streaks had a domi-n ant peformance Tuesday, getting seven match wins, w hile only giving up seven game losses, for a sweep of v isiting Haines City. Nisha Patel had just one g ame lost in her 6-1, 6-0 win at No. 1 Singles, while at Nos 2 and 3, Joy Donglasan and Kelly Broen cruised to 6-0, 6-0 wins. Morgan Heston took two game losses, but still won easily at No. 4, 6-2, 6-0, and Micaela DeVane went 6-1, 6-0 at No. 5. Patel and Donglasan kept it rolling with a 6-0, 6-0 win at No. 1 Doubles, though Broen and Heston had the closestmatch of the day at No 2. Doubles, winning 6-2, 6-1. The Lady Dragons, stinging from their loss to Sebring the previous week, looked strong in a close, 4-3 loss to LaBelle Monday, but came back stronger with a win at Hardee Tuesday. In Tuesdays match against the Cowgirls, the first three singles positions lost, before Jenna Blount got a win at No. 4, 6-3, 7-6. Rachel Shattler came up just short at No. 5, winning the first set 6-3, losing the second 4-6 and then the tie-breaking third set, 3-6. The doubles teams then both got wins as Hannah Waller and Stephanie Rodriguez paired up for an 8-3 win and Claire LeBlanc joined Blount for an 8-4 win. The team then carried that late momentum into T uesdays contest and cleaned up the Lady W ildcats. Waller, Rodriguez, LaBlanc and Shattler picked up wins in singles and the doubles teams of Waller and Rodriguez, LeBlanc and Blount also rolled to wins. At 4-1 after the Haines City win, the Lady Streaks host Okeechobee Tuesday before getting set to be the host of the Heartland Conference Tournament Friday at 1 p.m. and Saturday starting at 9 a.m. Lake Placid stands at 3-2 and hosts a rematch with LaBelle Tuesday befo re heading to the Heartland for the weekend. The boys side of the Heartland tournament will be held at Avon Park and, like the girls, begin Friday at 1 p.m. and Saturday at 9 a.m. an 8-2 loss in the second round. All three would still have their chance to continue with wins in the ensuing wrestleback round. Unfortunately, Torres wouldnt make it out of the wrestlebacks. H aving just missed reaching the medal rounds a year ago, Torres again found his path blocked as Jamel Morriso f Cardinal Gibbons outpointed him to end his quest. N eeley and Baldridge, however, bounced back in i mpressive fashion to continue on their missions. N eeley won by fall just 38 seconds into the second round of his match with Mourning High Schools Maher Jaser, and Baldridge took an 11-5 win over Josh Calhoun of The Bolles School. While insuring their continuation into Saturday, both Neeley and Baldridge still need one more win to guarantee a place on the medal stand. Neeley was slated to face Jarred Wolfenberger of Indian Rocks Christian early Saturday, with Baldridge set to meet Christian Perez of Doral Academy. The final two wrestlers still alive have already assured themselves of bring-i ng home some hardware by going 2-0 on Friday Sebrings Chris DeJesus and Avon Parks Delroy Blake. Both took strong wins in their opening matches and had to battle for wins in the second round. In the Class 2A, 160pound class, DeJesus took an 8-3 win over Alex Luttrell of Crestview, before facing a physically imposing Mike Aroyo of Olympic Heights. s a very strong kid, Miller acknowledged. But Chris is very sound with his tactics and usually does well against strong opponents. He would need to get those tactics in order late as Aroyo carried a slim lead into the third round. But a couple of scoring moves within the final two minutes nabbed the 8-4 win f or DeJesus. After reaching State, but going two-and-out last year,t he turnaround to 2-0 this time around was a very welc ome accomplishment. s a great feeling, having my first medalist as a coach, Miller said. Its also a relief, like a great big monkey off my back. And he made things easy f or himself, he continued. When I medaled, I had a loss going into Saturday, so Ih ad to fight my way back into it. He got his two wins and can now take the rest of the night to recover and relax. Blake, a Red Devil junior making his frist trip to State, was competing in the Class 1A, 195-pound weight class and wasted little time in coming out of the gates with a 10-3 win over Mark Hinchcliffe of Florida High. In his next match, against C ardinal GibbonsRyan Thomas, it was more of a feeling out process as the early going was light on decisive scoring moves. B ut the pace soon picked up, as did Blakes scoring. At one point, Thomas nose began to bleed, leading to a delay in the action as b oth he and the mats were attended to. And when the action continued, Blake held his lead and took a 6-3 win to stamph is medal reservation. e came through here earlier this week for a walkthrough and warm-ups and at first I was scared, Blake said. But when we came back, it wasnt so bad and I was feeling a lot better. o do well, it feels great, but for me its so much about being a part of this team and how well everyone is doing and the support for each other, he continued. I just love being a part of Avon Park wrestling. Page 4BNews-SunSunday, February 17, 2013w ww.newssun.com COCHRAN BROTHERS ROOFING; 5.542"; 3"; Black; feb ads; 00027287 DR.

C M Y K B ack when people from my parents generation were firstp lanning their lives together,most marr ied couples looked forward to working hard for a few d ecades,buying a house,raising a family and then retiring together while they still hade nough money and energy to travel and pursue favorite hobbies. Some couples do manage to pull this off and thrive;b ut for many others,any of a host of obstacles can block t heir ability to retire at the same time. For example: T hanks to periods of unemployment,home-value decline or 401(k loss suffered during the Great Recession,many cou-p les simply dont have enough money to retire together comfortably. If theres a significant age difference,one spouse mayn ot have accumulated enough Social Security credits to qualify for a benefit by the time the other is ready to retire. Women often worry that the couple hasnt saved enough since there statistically likely to survive their spouses often for a decade or more. One spouse must continue working to supply employerprovided medical coverage until both reach Medicare eligibility age (65 in most cases). One spouse is just hitting his or her stride,career-wise, and isnt ready to slow down. Among couples who have managed to save enough to retire together,when it comes time to pull the trigger many realize they havent fully agreed on where or how to retire; or they discover that their wishes have diverged over the years. This can put tremendous strain on a marriage if youre not willing to compromise and talk things through. Long before you actually retire,ask yourselves: Should we downsize to a smaller dwelling or even move to a retirement community? Sell the house,buy a trailer and live like nomads for a few years? Move to a warmer climate or to be nearer our grandchildren? Move to a state with lower taxes or cost of living? Start a small side business to keep money rolling in? Are we finished supporti ng our children financially? Even before aski ng those tough questions,you a lready should have begun estimating your retirement i ncome needs. Social Security has a helpful online Retirement Estimator that canh elp ( www.ssa.gov/estimator ). After youve explored various retirement scenarios, consider hiring a financialp lanner to help work out an investment and savings game p lan,or to at least review the one you've devised. A long with the financial impact retirement will have on your marriage,keep in m ind that this may be the first time that youve been together,day in and day out.M any people are so consumed by their jobs that they h avent taken time to develop outside interests and hobbies. Well before retirement, y ou and your spouse should start exploring activities and networks of friends you can enjoy,both together and independently. Considert hings like volunteer work, hobbies,athletic activities or even part-time employment if you miss the workplace interaction and need them oney. And finally,if your plan is t o have one spouse continue working for a while,try liv-i ng on only that one salary for a few months before retiring as an experiment. T his will give you an inkling of how well youll do financially and whether youm ight both need to keep working to amass more savi ngs.

Slimy. Poisonous. Ugly.These are only a few o f the words that describe many peoples negative feeling towards snakes,lizards, toads and other reptiles and amphibians. They haveat ough time getting people to think of them in a positive light. Even their collective name herps comes from a Greek term meaning creeping things. But these critters have t heir good points. While all snakes are predators,most are harmless. In fact,less than one-third of the worlds snake species are venomousa nd less than 10 percent are dangerously venomous. In t he United States,90 percent o f the snakes are non-veno mous. Plus,they are actuall y beneficial to humans because they prey on rodents. As a matter of fact, s nakes are the worlds most e ffective natural control on r odent population. These animals called herps salamanders,frogs, lizards,snakes and toads are part of the balance of n ature you learned about in grade school. Their health is an indicator of the health of t he environment. Dont think of the lowlyt oad as an unwanted guest. If you have toadsa round, they will eat the things you most wantt o get rid of like slugs and mosquitoes,which are among its favorite meals. Lizards are probably the most familiar of all reptiles. There are more than 3,500d ifferent types of lizards throughout the world,existi ng in all climates. Lizards are as diverse as their dwellings. They are oftenm isunderstood and feared because of a lack of knowle dge and exposure. The truth is,lizards,like so many other reptiles and amphibians,are beneficial to humans. In many countries,l izards are welcome houseguests,catching and eating m any annoying insects. They walk the walls and ceilings a nd live their lives unharmed by understanding humans. S ome lizards are not so fortunate and could become non-existent because of a lack of understanding. Beaded lizards and GilaM onsters,the only two poisonous species,are often killed out of fear. They are unlikely to bite pets or people. When they do,its likely to be in self-defense. Left alone,both lizards are docilec reatures. Many countries use lizards in ceremonies. Some Indian tribes of North America used lizard tails ina recipe for love potions. They are also eaten and their s kin used for leather. In the t ropics,the Green Iguana is killed for its flesh and eggs. And what about the slimy s alamanders? Well,they too h ave a purpose. Salamanders are predators of arthropods and insects. They are essential in keeping these popula-t ions in balance,which k eeps the wetlands healthy. They are also,like their rela-t ives the lizards,a great form of pest control. Common myths and untruths about herps: Toads and frogs cause warts the defensive skin secretions of toads do notc ause warts. Rattlesnakes add one rattle every year Contrary to this belief,a rattlesnake addso ne rattle every time it sheds its skin. Snakes may shed s everal times a year,each time adding a new rattle; in a ddition rattles may break off.For these reasons, counting rattles is not usual-l y an accurate method of determining a rattlesnake's a ge. Snakes travel in pairs; the survivor seeking revengei f one is killed This myth is entirely false; snakes hardly ever travel in groups or pairs. Snakes do not have any social bonds and wouldf eel in no way vengeful if o ne of itsconspecifics were to be killed.One possible explanation for this mythm ay be that in a prime habitat situation,several snakes o f the same species may be observed in a small area. A nother possible explanation for the origin of this myth could be related to the typi-c al reproductive behavior of snakes. During the mating s eason a male snake may closely follow a female snake. Snakes must be in a coiled position to strike In reality,snakes can bite or strike from any position.Coiling does howe ver,increase the distance that a snake can strike. A common inquiry relating to cottonmouths (Agkistrodon piscivorous),concerns their ability to bite underwater. Cottonmouths can in fact bite underwater,whichm akes sense since they live in wetland habitats,and fee d on fish and water snakes. All reptiles lay eggs Many reptiles are capable of g iving birth to live young. This can either be through the form of simple egg retention,in which all the nutrients still come from the calcified eggs (ovoviviparity), o r by having the babies actua lly grow inside the mother without an egg. At most the babies are covered in a membranous sack. This form of live birth is a type of v iviparity,and it is commonl y seen in vipers and chameleons. Still other rep-t iles,like the skinkChalcideschalcides give birth to live youngu sing a placenta,just like m ammals. H erps have a bad reputation, but they are beneficial to humans N ews From T he W atershed Corine Burgess Courtesy photo Salamanders are predators of arthropods and insects.

Carringtons Money Jungle a fresh take By JONATHAN LANDRUM Jr. A ssociated PressATLANTA Stevie W onder is not happy with Lil Waynes vulgar lyrics that reference Emmett Till, a black teen who was killed in 1955 for allegedlyw histling at a white woman. The R&B legend says the rappers disturbing verse should not have made it beyond the recording studiof or the world to hear. ou cant equate that to Emmett Till,Wonder said. You just cannot do that. ... I think you got to have someone around you that e ven if they are the same age or older is wiser to s ay,o,thats not happening. Dont do that. Wonder,who says he is a f an and friend of Lil Wayne,made the comments when asked what he t hought of Lil Waynes controversial lyrics in an interview Thursday. On a remix to Futures song Karate Chop,Lil Wayne compared a rough sex act to the tortuous deatho f 14-year-old Till in Mississippi,an incident that ultimately helped change the national conversation on race. Following ac rude reference to rough sex,Lil Wayne indicates that he wanted to do asm uch damage as had been done to Till. T ills family has asked the rapper for an apology, and Epic Records,Futuresl abel,said the official song will not feature the vulgar w ords and is employing great effortsto pull it down.

There by amateur photographers who had the foresight to record everything longb efore such a practice became the norm with the a dvent of the iPhone and YouTube from the mundane moments of their dailyl ives to scenes of violence, upheaval,death and eventuall y some sort of victory. There very different films from very different directors on very different topics. Broken Camerasi s a collaboration between Palestinian farmer Emad B urnat and Israeli director Guy Davidi featuring years of footage Burnat shot in hiso ccupied village of Bilin,a place that became a sort of s ymbol for nonviolent resistance. Each of the five cameras was destroyed in them idst of protests or gunfire; one still has a bullet lodged in the lens. But it also i ncludes daily events in the life of this husband and f ather of four; he actually bought the first camera in 2005 for the reason so many parents do,to record the first smiles and steps of hisy oungest son,Gibreel. Plagueis a collection of archival footage from the late 1980s and early s,asm embers of the New Yorkbased AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP) fought to find a cure for the disease as it quickly spreada nd claimed millions of lives. Director David France,who was in the middle of many of these boisterous planning meetings and theatricald emonstrations,culled through thousands of hours of footage from about two dozen different sources. Burnat of Broken Camerassaid hed alwaysi ntended to make a movie, but initially figured it would b e something private to show to family and friends. He felt it was his responsibility tod epict the fight for territory through his own eyes. Many films were made about Palestine and the subject but the story was being told by people who live outside. They didnt feel thisf eeling,this relation between the person and the land and h ow to live,how to survive in this situation under occupation,Burnat said. H e watched his brothers get arrested and friends get s hot by Israeli military,and even though he knew it was dangerous to venture into ita ll with his camera,this is the situation,this is our life, our daily life,Burnat said. At the same time,I was thinking for my kids,the f uture of my kids,to make this for them. My goal is to show the world and to spread the film and to change people,to change the situation.S o this was important for me. Burnat sought out Davidi, who shaped the film andw rote the narration,because he knew him as an Israeli peace activist. Together,the two aimed to craft a documentary with no politicals lant or judgment. Davidi spent a year and a half editing from 900 hours of footage that Burnat and a few others had shot beforeb ringing in French editor Veronique Lagoarde-Segot to help fine-tune the narrative. He said the naturalistic,intimate look of Broken Camerasisnt as effortlessa s it may appear. People have a lot of a ppreciation for a film that looks like it was heavily thought,it was planned,itl ooks spectacular with nice, big cameras,and in our film w e actually try to make it simple,he said. That included ruining some of the footage to make it appear even more authentically raw. T he people whose video appears in How to Survive a P laguesimilarly wanted to share their story with the world. France said the pho-t ographers had a number of motivations,from filling in t he gaps of traditional media reporting to documenting when police were excessivelyr ough during demonstrations to capturing quiet moments with loved ones before they d ied. The result:France often had the benefit of coverage of t he same event from several different angles. It was a true witnessbearing,said France,who spent two years cutting thef ilm. You also see in those scenes how comfortable people were on camera because the cameras were always present,which was onlym ade possible by a true revolution in home video. They w ere not these tiny,handheld things but for the first time it was affordable to ordinaryp eople to record things in that way.The camcorder c ame out in 1982,you had HIV in 1981 and by 1987 those tools were being usedb roadly. As in Broken Cameras, France wanted to tell a story t hat was free of partisanship. What we were reaching f or in How to Survive a Plaguewas to allow somebody who had no knowledge of this time and this movement to have the experiencew e had when it was happening,to really not know the outcome,to not know from day to day and scene to scene who was going to live andw ho was not going to live, France said. Would we get t here in time? We realized in the course of editing it that this was a real-life medicalt hriller. AJ Schnack,founder of the C inema Eye Honors for nonfiction filmmaking where both of these movies werer ecent winners Broken Camerastook the top prize, while Plaguewon for its e diting views this approach as an extension of t he kind of long-form investigative journalism that television networks dont do as much of anymore. By comparison,he said,a provoca-t eur like Michael Moore is tantamount to an opinion page writer. (Davidi) has the task of taking not only footage from his narrator/co-director/subject but also footage that other people shot at that time and still making it feel like a first-person account. I thinkt hats one of the things thats a success in that film,is that i t feels constantly like its Emads voice and camera but its the culmination of ab unch of different people shooting,said Schnack, w hose films include Kurt Cobain About a Son.w to Survive a Plagueis some-w hat similar in that hes taking the video from a number of sources at the time and tryi ng to craft a narrative that feels fairly singular thats w hy the editor remains the most important person in the documentary in some ways. In the case of both films, he added,both become suc-c essful if they tell you something new about something you think you know. C ontact Christy Lemire through Twitter: http://twitter.com/christylemire B y DAVID BAUDER AP Television WriterN EW YORK Mark Farkas is used to his teenage daughters showing little interest in his work. After all, he is a producer at terminallyu nhip C-SPAN. This time is different. The girls are intrigued by some of the stories Farkas is finding for the public service net-w orks series on first ladies. The 35-episode series begins with an overview Monday,on Presidents Day,and ends with an hour on Michelle Obama next Feb. 10. The series gives C-SPAN the chance to look at political and social history through a different prism,said Farkas, its executive producer. The White House Historical Association is teaming with C-SPAN to make it,after the idea came from a network historian who had been working on an oral history of White House social secretaries. The more digging that we did,we found that so many of these women were influential and had fascinating biographies,he said. James Madisons wife, Dolly,set the tone for the roles played by presidential spouses and was sought after for advice by first ladies who followed her,Farkas said. He considers Madison and Eleanor Roosevelt,who held regular news conferences and called upon news organizations to send female reporters,the most influential first ladies. All have settled on roles corresponding to their intere sts,up to Mrs. Obamas focus on military families a nd childrens fitness. Most of the women theres been no first man yet get a single hour in CSPANs series. In a fewc ases,a handful of 19th century first ladies have their stories compressed into a single hour. Anna Harrison,for example,never made it to theW hite House:She stayed in Ohio recovering from an illness and was packing for Washington when her husband,William Henry Harrison,died one month into his term. The first ladies had particularly divergent roles in the nations first century,when women did not have the right to vote. Abigail Adams was a strong writer and stood up for women,Farkas noted. Lucy Hayes was the first collegeeducated first lady and was considered more popular at the time than her husband, Rutherford B. Hayes. She set up the annual Easter Egg Roll,a tradition that continues today,and banned alcohol from the White House. Franklin Pierces wife, Jane,had the most tragic s tory. She never wanted her husband to run for president. T wo of the couples children died before age 5 and the lone survivor,11-year-old Benjamin,was killed in a train accident while travelingw ith his parents two months before inauguration. Jane Pierce spent most of her time in the White House residence and didnt make an officiala ppearance as first lady until two years into her husbands term. Even if that hadnt happened,Im not sure she would have been prepared for the role,said Farkas. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, February 17, 2013Page 11B DUMMY 2013; 5.542"; 7.1"; Black; church page dummy; 00026400 E.O.

C M Y K D ear Abby: I recently marrieda loving m an who works full timea nd is studying for his MBA online. A few months ago,h e received a promotion and was transferred to another state,so after ourw edding I moved here to be with him. W hile he was living here alone before our wedding, he got into some troublew ith the law and hes now on probation. He was never i n trouble before. I have no family or friends here,and he cant go out and socialize to meet new people now that hes under thoses trict guidelines. I have always been popu lar and have many friends back home,but Im lonely and depressed now. Im oved here because I love him,but I cant get over t he fact that this has dampened our first year as husband and wife. How should I handle the future of our marriage and our life here with all these unsettling issues he has put me in? Hurt Wife in Michigan D ear Hurt Wife: Unless your husband is under house arrest which probation is not he can socialize. He can makef riends through work,and look for volunteer opportun ities if he has the time. Both will help him to makec onnections with constructive people. The same is true for you to help you connect with the community. I know this is a big adjustment for you,but in time you can both put this unfortunate chapter behind you. I wish you both af uture filled with success. Dear Abby: Help! My husband wont wear clothes. When our children were young,he walked around naked because he wanted to make sure they didnt have the same hangups about nudity that he grew up with. (His father was ultra-conservative and uptight.) My husband began wearing clothes again when the kids got older,but now they have all moved out and he has quit. He sits naked in his recliner to watch TV. The recliner is right next to the front door, a nd theres only the storm door between him and the world. Abby,he literally strips all his clothes off to do the dishes. W e live in a neighborhood. Its not like were out in the country. If I say anything to him,he says I can go into a differentr oom if I dont like it. Is this normal? Nudies Wife in Florida D ear Nudies Wife: It appears to be normal for your husband. Some nota ll families are very relaxed about nudity. As l ong as your living room isnt visible to the neighbors and you dont haved rop-in visitors,your husband is harming no one. If y ou dont want to look at him,take him up on his suggestion. P.S. I hope you thank him for doing the dishes.N ot all husbands are so helpful. Dear Abby: My daughter was a bridesmaidr ecently.The bride chose a designer dress that my d aughter had to put a nonrefundable deposit on. A month later,the bride c hanged her mind about the color and canceled the order,so all six bridesmaids had to purchase another dress.

They had just endured a very long ride made longer by traffic to visit us for Christmas and be here through a family reunion that would begin Dec. 28. At the moment,they knew of no other plans; just the warmth and welcome of Grammas and Pop-Pops arms that never wanted to let go. Eagerness and anticipation welled up in them. Inquisitive eyes took in all the Christmas decorations. Their faces lit up with the sheer joy of being together as we sat down to a simple meal. I could list the many happenings in the week that followed and the happiness of each moment. But,true joy now thats something almost indescribable because it isnt measured in doing but in being. We had come across a box of old cars that had belonged to their daddy and uncles and had them ready with simple wooden blocks borrowed from our church.You would have thought wed provided buried treasure. But,the call came often play with me Gramma. Ride bikes with me Pop-Pop. They were happy to have these things to entertain them. But joy wasnt in the thing it was in the company. Joy has to do with relationship. In John 15:1-10,(NKJV Jesus shared with his disciples the lessons of the vine and the branches. He taught them lessons from the vineyard and described himself as the true vine.He expressed that they (we the branches. Like grape branches bear fruit according to their attachment to the life-giving vine,so we,too, bear much fruit when we abide in Jesus,the true vine. Jesus instructs us to abide in his love as he does with the Father. Then he says in verse 11,These things I have spoken to you,that My joy may remain in you,and that your joy may be full. The doing and enjoyment of all God provides is enhanced by our relationship with him. Thats where the joy comes from and remains securely within. Even if we are going through difficult or sorrowful times,that joy bubbles to the surface and overflows because its source is God; and in John 16:22 we are reminded, and your joy no one will take from you. Tears of joy were silently wiped away as our grandson responded to a song and poem at church.Our granddaughters eyes lit up as she sang songs of faith knowing we had taught them to her. Joy! Its deep and abiding and I treasure it.
