A von Park criminal justice student Roxanne Judd has dove right into the w orld of legislation in her attempt to bring some closure and justice to the family of Aaron Doty,the 20-year-oldm an murdered last June. As Dotys one year death anniversary approaches,Judd has put her efforts into full gear with the help of some family members andf riends. The idea is called t he Aaron Doty La and if accepted it will be used to hold bystanders account-a ble for their in-action during a crime. After speaking with Sheriff Susan B enton,she explained to me that there is currently no law in place that makes it illegal for people to witness a felony and not report it,Judd said. That is just unacceptable. Since Dotys tragic murder,others h ave stepped up to the plate and began similar efforts to change the laws r egarding bystanders and crimes. There was one girl who started doing this same thing several monthsa go,but I dont know what happened to her.

From the creation of the s anctioning body that administrated the race,to improvements at the historic raceway,t o fielding a number of race cars findi ng an individual more involved in S ebring than Don Panoz would be a tough task. To that e nd,American Le Mans Series founder and 12 Hour promoter Don Panoz has been tapped as this years Grand Marshal for the Mobil1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh from Florida. It will b e a bittersweet event,as the 61st running of the grandp rix of endurance will also be the last under the ALMS banner. The ALMS was established under an agreement with theA utomobile Club de lOuest (ACO),organizers of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Officials of the ACO later said that as the creator of the first seriest o bear the Le Mansname and at the same time using its racing rules Panoz had developed endurance racing and taken it to a level probably never before attained on the American continent. Later,standing in a packed pressroom in the old pit structure,Panoz told a conglomeration of journalists his plans for improvements to the track.

Previous Junior Idol champion and well-known aspiring singer Nala Price put on a unprecedented performance during the Teen Finale at the Highlands County YMCA earning the performer her second Idol win. I know what to expect from you because Ive heard you sing so many times before,but tonight you brought something so different. That was awesome,Idol judge Dustin Woods said. Prices familiar,and always amazing,performances have remained sketched in the minds of local fans. However,Thursdays performance thrust the 13-yearold singer into a whole new light. Following Prices revamped version of the chart topping Alicia Kes hit Girl on Fire,judges could give the young singer nothing but positive feedback. That was so sick,said veteran judge Larry Moore. That was frightening. I love your voice. It is so beautiful and so powerful. You came out here to sing; you came here to win. The Teen Idol division was packed with talent. Judges had a difficult time determinFamiliar voice named Teen Idol S pecial to the News-SunAVON PARK The students of Avon Parks Park Elementary and Middle schools had the distinct pleasure of being visited by three professional off-road racers from the GNCC (Grand National Cross Country series on Thursday. Adam McGill,Johnny Gallagher and Branden Henthorn spoke to the students on motorsport safety,teamwork,self-esteem and anti-bullying. McGill is ranked fourth and Gallagher is ranked eighth in the professional series. Henthorn,who is only 17,just turned professional and is a rookie this year. The appearance was coordinated between the schools,GNCC,and Ronnie Jackson,in combination with the Avon Park Champions Club. This is one of the things as a Champions Club we do for the schools,Jackson said,bring in people to talk about bullying,staying in school,teamwork and that type of stuff. Jen Kenyon,who is the media spokesperson for the GNCC Series, stated that they were there to let the pro racers talk to the kids about the importance of safety,goal setting and anti-bullying topics. e are here to mingle with the kids and give them a good positive message,Kenyon said. We use this as a way to get kids involved in what we do in racing,but also it is important to use our pro racers,who the kids look up to,to send a positive message.

B y BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentS EBRING Its hard to believe it has been nearly three decades that fans have been able to Ride the Racetrack,courtesy of the Sebring Chamber of Commerce and the Sebring International Raceway. A creation of former chamber head Mike Lee,it began on a cold,windy day before the races with local drivers John Dean,Kenny LaGrow and Gary Blackman bringing their personal race cars out for fans to get a drivers-eyeview of the historic circuit. The event has grown steadily with the Skip Barber Racing School now donating cars and drivers to send the fans out in packs of three to five cars,where they have the experience of passing andb eing passed while Skip Barber instructors give passengers a running commentary on the points of negotiating the 3.74-mile course. This year will be the first Ride the Racetrack event for new Sebring Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Steve Nyhan. Nyhan says this year there will be some new features, including anFast Pass. It is a $5 upgrade and gets riders in the fast lane,moving them through the line more quickly Again this year,the Cohan Radio Group has donated a live radio remote on 99.1FM WWOJ, Nyhan pointed out that the event would not be possible without the donation of track time by the raceway,and thed onation of the Skip Barber organization. They not only foot the bill for gas and tires, but are bringing their cars from Georgia for the event. Those who want to ride the track will board the cars at the Corvette Corral at Turn 17. Tickets are $20 at the gate.It will begin at 11a.m. this morning and run until 3 p.m. The event is being sponsored by the Alan Jay Automotive Network, Florida Hospital Heartland Divsion,Highlands Regional Medical Center, CliftonLarsonAllen,Sun N Lake Golf Club,the NewsSun and the Cohan Radio Group.

PB:Power Ball Lottery Center B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY email@example.comSEBRING Ever since the man-eating sinkhole in Seffner opened up a weeka go,Highlands Countys director of Emergency Operations Center,Scott Canady,has received a stream of calls from pan-i cked homeowners reporting sinkholes on their property. He got two calls Wednesday morning alone. The news coverage (of the Seffner sinkhole) hasg ot people on edge, Canady said. So far,he a dded,hes been able to say,No. You really dont have a sink hole,at everys ite hes inspected. He said he has only been to one site i n the county where youd say,Oh yeah,thats a sinkhole. There is a good reason Canady has seen only a sin-g le example. Highlands Countys geology is stable. L ocated on the Lake Wales Ridge,the layers of sand, clay and limestone aret hick. This is important because F lorida is built on a foundation of limestone,a rock created out of the remainso f once living creatures. It erodes easily,because the rock is porous. Water seeps i nto the rocks natural cracks forming chann els,eroding it from the inside. Over millennia,caverns are created in the limestone,underground riversf low through the rock,and aquifers form. When a cavern roof is eroded to the point its ceiling is just below the surface crust,the weight of thec rust and everything on it can break though the weakened sedimentary rock,creating a deep hole. The same dynamic c omes into play when water is withdrawn from the aquifer either through drought or human consumption voids are cre-a ted and the brittle limestone,suddenly without support,caves in under thew eight of the surface. The sinkhole Canady witnessed occurred inV enus in August of 2012. Ben Henley and I stood a nd watched it grow, Canady said. The sand poured into the circularh ole that grew wider. s like the sand in an h ourglass,Canady said, an upside down hourglass. Its trying to fill the underground hole. According to the Florida g eological survey conducted in 2004,there are very f ew sinkholes here in Highlands County most of them to the west andv ery,very small. There have only been three of any s ize. A map of sinkholes in Florida shows the great m ajority of them in the central west coast counties like Hernando, Hillsborough,Pasco and Pinellas counties. Then orthern part of the state and the panhandle have them in number too,as does Polk County. South Florida has virtually none. Dont fall into a sinkhole panic Special to the News-SunS EBRING It is unknown at this time what killed John Gonzalez,42,while he was a prisoner at the Highlands County Jail.

C M Y K Its a reminder of just how arbitrary and relative time is,how manm ade. Yes,time is real just as gravity is but think for a minute. We live on an endlessly spinning sphere moving through space. How did we ever learn to measure timei n a line when we keep going round and round? T here was only one way picking a spot to call the prime meridian from which all Earth timew ould be measured. Does it surprise anyone that p icking the prime meridian became a political decision having nothing to do with science? Of course not. England and her empire were at t heir height in 1884. That was the year the Royal Observatory in G reenwich,England officially became the center of world time when the longitude it sits on wase stablished as 0 degrees longitude (which is what the prime meridian i s). This means all time zones begin and end in England. How unsur-p rising that the most powerful country in the world at the time made sure time everywhere else was relative to it. It wasnt until World War I that Daylight Savings Time was used toc onserve energy for the war.And it wasnt until shortly after the end of W orld War II that it was adopted permanently in the United States. According to timeanddate.com, b etween 1945 and 1966 the new system was confusing especiall y as local areas and states were free to pass ordinances exempting themselves from Daylight Savings Time. The state of Indiana is an examp le of this democratic influence. Due to deep divisions over the i ssue,its legislature didnt vote to institute Daylight Savings Time until 2005,and its counties mays till vote to be in Eastern (the majority) or Central time. W hat is not arbitrary,is the way our bodies react to transitions in time. Studies show that moving clocks forward only an hour pro-d uces what amounts to jet lag in many people. The effects may linger for several days. There are reports stating the incidence of heart attacks and males uicides rise immediately following the jump forward in spring transitioning back to Standard Time by the way,when clocks are turned back an hour in the fall, does not appear to have the samee ffect. According to timeanddate.com, e xperts have a couple of suggestions to help adjust. Exercise in the form of a brisk walk or run canh elp people make the change more easily by stimulating serotonin r elease. Another idea is to trick the body into thinking it is later in the day by eating earlier avoiding alcohol and caffeine. Given that measuring time is i nconsistent and fanciful,and that changing from one time to another s tresses the body and mind,why not follow Indianas example. Gather everyone at work and votet o exempt yourselves from Daylight Savings Time. Its all rela tive,after all.

In some p laces,this makes me eligible for a senior discount. It has reminded me t hat I am no longer 20. Other things have conspired to le t me know that I am getting up there i n age. I just got back from a trip to Oregon for a writers workshop,an d the trip left me totally exhausted. It t ook me over a day to bounce back. Where did my energy go? I worry when I forget things. Is m y mind starting to go? Or is it just the result of my occasional scatterbrainedness? (Is that a word? I don r emember). What do the upcoming years hold f or me? Will I gradually deteriorate until Im a shadow of myself? S hould I resign myself to becoming less and less productive,less of myself? T he answer to these questions is why my new heroine is a lady by th e name of Edythe Kirchmaier. A ccording to news.yahoo.com,Ms. Kirchmaier recently passed her California drivers test and had herl icense renewed.Why is this news, you ask?Ms. Kirchmaier is 105 y ears old. T he article states that she is the states oldest driver. She has driven 8 6 years without besmirching her driving record,which puts her ahea d of a lot of people younger than she is. M oreover,she is Facebooks olde s t user. Her page has more than 33,000 followers. According to the page,she b ecame involved in volunteer work back in World War I. Today she works for an organization calledD irect Relief International,which i s a nonprofit organization dedicated to improve the health and lives of peop le affected by disaster,poverty and civil unrest. She has appeared on The Tonight S how with Jay Leno,among others According to all Ive read about her, shes staying active. She certainlyd oesnt seem to be letting a little thing like age stop her. According to an article on www.foxnews.com,when Ms. Kirchmaier took her first driverst est,Calvin Coolidge was president a nd Babe Ruth was playing ball. She said that a lot of things have changed over the years shes driven. For one t hing,there were no rules of the road or speed limit signs. I can think of a lot of other differe nces. There was no Internet, microwave ovens,or cell phones. Cars were certainly different Ms. Kirchmaiers first vehicle was a Model A Ford Coupe. She currently drives a 1997 Dodge Caravan,whic h she takes at least once a week to Disaster Relief International,where she leads a team of volunteers. Ms. Kirchmaiers secret to her long productive life? While appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres show, she said the following:I would say ve always been very happy. Ive had a happy marriage. Ive got a wonderful family. I think positive. I f something happens,I cant do anything about it so I dont let it bothe r me.She also said she believed that technology played a role in keeping people young and active. I read the articles about Edythe Kirchmaier and I think about myself.Suddenly 55 doesnt seem that old.Yes,it might slow me dow n a little,but it doesnt have to stop me entirely. Edythe Kirchmaier reminds me that my excuses for not doing what I can and not pushing myself are just that excuses. She is an example of someone who is living her life to the fullest of her ability and she has a lot of ability. Take a page out of her book. Don look at what limits you look at what you CAN accomplish. As Ms. Kirchmaier shows,you can probabl y do a lot more than you think. Im not saying you should put yourself or anyone else in danger,but dont giv e up on life because of a number. Live. Achieve. Keep on keeping on. If a cheerful 105-year-old woma n can do it,I bet we can,too. No excuses Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at email@example.com Visit her website at www.laurahware.com. Lauras Look Laura Ware Springing forward trips people up Cut the fear mongering and the spendingEditor: The President and other Big Government politicians in Washington,DC are using the most juvenile scare tactics imaginable to intimidate American families into opposing the sequester cuts. For instance,they tell us that air traffic control will be devastated,delaying flights and risking passenger safety. At the same time,the FAA spends money to investigate some college kids doing the Harlem Shakeon an airplane,even though they had the cres permission. Tax-and-spend politicians threaten us with unsafe food, while at the same time pouring $300,000 into a program to promote caviar consumption. The examples go on,and on, and on. We all agree that the federal government shouldnt waste our hard-earned wages on things like caviar consumption especially while so many of us are still hurting. We understand that politicians like Nancy Pelosi are trying to frighten us into opposing any future cuts to spending by making this round of cuts as painful as possible. This means they want government to perform worse than it usually does,all so they can prove a point. Thats not how a public servantis supposed to serve. A lobbyist recently told the Washington Post that the most catastrophic outcome from sequester would be if nothing bad happened at all. You see,they want bad things to happen. Their fear mongering is disgraceful. John Nelson Chair The Highlands Tea PartyKeep English in the work placeEditor: The President,the Homeland Security Head and the Attorney General should all be held accountable for fast and furious and our open border with Mexico. They should all be tried for treason against the American people,the complete disregard for our Constitution and the violation of our immigration laws by a rogue government. The violation of our immigration laws is the number one problem in America today,not the second amendment of these United States,the right of every American to own and bear arms. The Spanish language should not be legal in the workplace,neither should the illegal worker be allowed to work in our nation. We have close to 30 million Americans unemployed and this fall it will top 50 million. We have a rogue political system that is promoting an illegal Spanishspeaking workforce to replace the American worker. They are buying up ammunition and assault weapons and have sent them to Mexico. The rogue politicals have also failed to control our southern border with Mexico and have promoted the flow of millions of illegals to take over millions of American jobs. The flow of illegals is so great as to effect our electoral process, destroying due process of the law. To protect our laws,we must demand term limits for all elected officials in future elections. This term limits should effect local, state and federal office holders. All Americans should demand control of our southern border with Mexico by the military. Our elected officials have failed for more than 50 years. I would hope that the American news media stop promoting an invading Spanish-speaking illegal workforce. NBC is on its way to the bottom in news reporting. It is not the job of news media to make the news. It is their job to report the news. Billie E. Jewett SebringSupport Scotts sequester commentEditor: Governor Scott,in a speech to reporters last Friday,said neither the president nor Congress should get paid until they solve this sequester problem. The people of America should somehow get behind this. Obama and most of the Congress are not worried; their future is financially secure. Obama is obviously playing politics hoping to make the Republicans look bad. I truly believe he was groomed to bring America down. Billy Goff Avon ParkWill the change bring more tourists?Editor: In this March 6 article Mr. (Johnails to tell you that they would raise the 42 percent of the total tax collected, that would only leave 58 percent of the tax to be divided among the other three categories.

This is doing just what they said in 2002,they would never do spend more on administration than any other thing. Remember not one dime over 29 percent. Sounds like another government program to me. Mr. Scherlacher also tells us not to worry,because this plan will only last for three years. Must be he didnt read SS 125.0104(4d stay until it is amended by four commissioners,so it could last forever. Remember back in 2002 when (Ross didnt need a sunset because TDC would only last 15 years? This is the same thing,pure bull. Yes TDC has a problem. They are spending much more on operations than is allowed by the present plan. And at the present time are hiding about 81 percent of Mr. Scherlachers pay and benefits in the other categories and this new plan would correct that problem. But will it bring more tourists to Highlands County? If they truly believe it will, they should have no problem requiring that the plan be amended to the state. The following shall be placed on the 2014 Ballot:Shall a 10year Sunset,the first to be Nov. 1, 2016,be added to the tourist development tax plan. And let the voters decide. If this is just a way to raise the operations cost,they will not agree to adding a sunset clause to the plan. Bill Youngman Sebring

The Chateau Elan Hotel a nd Spa opened at the raceways famous hairpin turn i n 2000 just in time for Race Week. It later underwent a $7 million expansion that included 43 new rooms and suites plus a 4,000-square-f oot Grand Ballroom. In 2008 a new two-story, 10,000-square-foot administration building greeted fans at the raceway. It houses an ew gift shop,registration center,ticket office,business center,conference room,staff offices and archives. On the raceway itself,the Gallery of Legends was built in the paddock. That building annually houses a display of notable vintage race cars during each year's 12 Hour race. The 7,500square-foot structure is available year-round for car clubs,vintage racers and special events. Ultimately it was designed to house the Sebring Hall of Fame. Moreover,Panoz was responsible for a number of d ifferent cars that raced the 12 Hours. It started with the f amous Panoz GTR,with other incarnations such ast he Roadster-S and a series of LMP cars. They were notable amongst Le Mans prototypes for the the placement of the engine in fronto f the driver,instead of the normal positioning behind. The style of the car earned the GTR the nickname Le Batmobile. H e also fielded the Panoz Abruzzi Spirit of Le Mans race car. That was prepared by Tom Milners Prototype Technology Group,and c ompeted at Sebring in 2011. A charter member of the Sebring InternationalR aceways Hall of Fame, Panoz will continue to exert influence over Sebring International Raceway and sports car racing as a whole.H e will continue to serve on the board of a new sports car racing sanctioning body resulting from the merger of the ALMS and the GRAND-A M racing series. A name for that new group is slated to be announced next week. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, March 10, 2013Page A5 DAILY COMMERCIAL; 3.639"; 1"; Black; cornerstone hospice; 00027962 CENTRAL FLORIDA CASKET STORE &; 1.736";6 "; Black; obit page; 00027942 MARTIAL ARTS (pp care rhr top only; 00027966 Stephenson-Nelson FH; 7.444"; 5"; Black; -; 00028345 CHESTER BROJEK Sr. C hester Anthony Brojek S r.,91,of Sebring,Fla., passed away Friday,March 8, 2013.

Petitions have been signed by more than 5,500 individuals through an online petition Websiteh eaded by Meabe (change.org). Judd has established a second site, signon.org/,where individuals may choose to sign ap etition for Aaron Dotys Law that will possibly become a part of the legislation. Basically this law,if it goes into play,will say Ify ou see a felony happening and you dont do anything or report it,you can be held accountable,Judde xplained. Judd has spoken to legislators in Tallahassee,including State Senator Denise Grimsely and her assistantL arry Ford,as well as reached out to State Representative Cary Pigman. ord told me that it is t oo late to get it looked at in delegation now.The next date for legislation delegation is Oct. 1. Im on a mission to get as many signedp etitions as possible before I go up to face them again. I just need the communitysh elp and involvement. If I have to start knocking on doors and going to business-e s,I will. I just feel like God has called me to do this to h elp the Doty family have some type of peace and closure. They havebeent hrough so much,Judd said. D oty,20,was allegedly beaten into unconsciousness at a party in Sun n Lake by two men the morning of June 10,2012. The ment hen loaded Doty into a truck and took him out to t he woods,where they allegedly killed him. There were several young people at the party who witnessed the beating and thet wo men loading Doty into the truck and driving away with him,but no one called 911,ever after Doty laid on the floor and had stoppedm oving.

The students at Park Elementary were excitedw hen they saw the three racers,who were in their racing s uits,the safety gear that was laid out and most importantly two ATVs (all-terrainv ehicle) that they actually use in racing. It is definitely dangero us,Kenyon said. Thats why these guys are going to g ear up with all their safety gear and tell the kids how important it is to wear your helmet,wear long sleeves, gloves and proper footw ear. Gallagher spoke about goal setting and teamwork. He told them that he has been riding for 30 years and knew at a young age he wanted to be a professionalr ider. Even though many told him he would not make it,he c ontinued to pursue his dream and it came true. He also stated that even though he gets to be in front of the camera,sign auto-g raphs and all the other coolstuff,it would not be possible without the help of others. eam work is important, G allagher said,such as people that work on the bikes and those that arranged for us to be here today. They told the students of the saying,Quitters never win; winners never quitand how that can be used in any part of life,whether it is doing homework,chores at home,playing sports and extra-curricular activities, t he most important thing is to never give up. Just like these guys standing before you, Kenyon told the students, they get to travel across the country and race their ATVsb ecause they never gave up on their dream. They also spoke about bullying. Many of the students raised their handsw hen they were asked if they saw someone being mean to someone else during the past week. Look around,Gallagher said. These guys are going to be around for years and should work together as a team. Be nice if somebody is down. Dont beat each other down. s not cool to pick on or m ake fun of other people, McGill said. Dont beat e ach other up. Get to know them,maybe you will find other things that you like. They also had a presentation on safety gear,thati ncluded involving four student volunteers in a race to put all the safety on as the crowd cheered them on. Afterwards,the students h ad the chance to look at the gear. Some got on the ATVs, shake hands or do high fives with the racers. Dr. Brenda Longshore, principal at Park Elementary, thanked the racers for coming to the school. e tell them the same thing,Longshore said,ut when they hear it from them, they listen and repeat it.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d firstname.lastname@example.orgAVON PARK After Thursdays loss to Fort Meade had made it two in a row, after a season-opening nine-game win streak, AvonP ark was looking to right the ship Friday against Mulberry. The visiting Panthers w ere just what the doctor ordered as the Red Devils t ook a 9-5 win. Things had just gotten a little sloppy, head coach Whit Cornell said of the back-toback losses to DeSoto and Fort Meade. We were chasing pitches out of the zone and werent making plays defensively The sloppiness looked like it might continue as the first Mulberry batter reached on an error and stole second. One out later, a single the ricocheted off starting pitcher Colton Brock put runners on the corners and on a pick-off move, the runner at first was caught in a rundown. In the midst of the backand-forth, the runner on third made a break for the plate and slid in safely when the throw home went high and wide. But after surrendering a walk, Brock got a grounder to short that turned into an inning-ending double play. The Avon Park offense, relatively dormant the last couple of games, then seemed to get back on track with a trio of runs to take a lead they would never relinquish. Alfred Brown reached on an infield single and soon stole second. After Tyrone Perry drew a one-out walk, Brown stole third but was forced to stay on a ground-out to third, with Perry moving to second. Apassed ball, however, soon brought Brown in and moved Perry to third before Kyle Kelley reached on an error to bring Perry in for the Devils second run. Kelley stole second while Anthony Caruthers was drawing a walk and the bases were soon loaded when Steven Flowers took a pitch off the helmet. Freshman Luis Martinez then battled back from a 1-2 count to draw a walk to bring Kelley home for a 3-1 lead. That lead would grow by a three-spot in the second when, after Brock worked a scoreless top of the inning, Brown got it started again with an infield single to start the bottom of the frame. When the throw trying to get him at first got away, Brown continued on to second and would soon move to third on a passed ball. Torri Pringle brought him home with a single to right and would soon steal second himself, moving to third on the play when the throw got away. Perry knocked him in when his rocket-shot grounder toward first couldnt be handled. Two outs and an error later, Perry came in to make it a 6-1 lead. The third inning went by quietly, but Perry made some noise in the bottom of the fourth when, with Pringle on board via a hitby-pitch, he blasted a screaming line over the fence in right for a two-run homer.

News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Breauna Corley played long-ball again, knocking one out of the park in Friday nights loss to DeSoto. By ALEX COYNE N ews-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID The Lady Dragons finished off their last game before Spring Break Friday night with a loss under the DeSoto Bulldogs, 157. B oth teams put numbers on the board early, but DeSoto would outscore Lake Placid in the later innings to clinch the win. When the first Bulldog batter was walked and immediately caught stealing second base, hopes were high for the Dragon defense. When the next batter earned a base hit and two stolen bases, she was brought home to earn the only DeSoto run of the inning. Laine WeberCallahan started things off for the D ragons with a base hit and two stolen bases. After two strikeouts, her sister, Annie Weber-Callahan would bring her home with a base hit of her own. As Annie made her way around the bases, a tag out sliding home ended the first inning in a tie ball game, 1-1. As the second inning played out, Lake Placid would only allow one DeSoto run. Three quick outs by the Bulldog defense left the Dragons scoreless in the seco nd, leaving them down 2-1. In the third a DeSoto runner on first took advantage of an overthrow and made her way around the bases for the third run of the night for the visitors. With runners on second and third, Taylor Test caught a fly ball at shortstop to end the inning. Two quick outs in the bo ttom of the third inning left Lake Placid with no base runners and two outs. B ut Breauna Corley stepped up for the Dragons and blasted a home run over the left-field fence. The team celebrated at h ome plate as Corleys home run brought them within one run going into the fourth i nning, down 3-2. T he Bulldogs would expand their lead in the top of the fourth, however, when Bulldogs too much for Lady Dragons See LP, Page B5 DeSoto15L ake Placid7 Avon Park9Mulberry5 Devils slip past Panthers See AP, Page B3 Special to the News-SunOn March 5 and 6, several of Tanglewoods Pickleballers headed north to Solivita at Poinciana, 20 minutes south of Disney World, to participate in the Polk County Senior Games. S oloivita is an active adult l ifestylye community boasting seven pickleball courts with another four to be built in the near future. On Wednesday, the mixed doubles were on the courts. Tanglewood took gold and bronze in the 70-79 division. Jimmy Maynard and Gail Brown teamed up for the gold. Jimmy said it was a very well run tournament with 140 players and excellent facilities. He commented on the very strong winds that made shot making extremely difficult and took much of the joy out o f the game. Marvin Strope and Barbara Miachika didnt play nearly as well as Marvin had hoped they would, but they did manage to earn themselves a bronze medal. Roger Binette and Diane R eynolds represented Tanglewood in the very tough 65-69 year old grouping that saw an astonishing 20 teams taking part in the action. Mens and ladiesdoubles action took to the courts on Tuesday. Tanglewood was represented by Gloria Soltes and Gail Brown who took home the ladiesbronze medal in 70-74 year old competition by winning their first and third matches. Gloria Soltes noted that the level of competition has improved greatly over the years. She and partner Gail Brown had a good shot at d efeating the silver-med al team but acknowledge that the gold medalists from the Villages were in a class of their own. Jimmy Maynard of Tanglewood teamed up with a partner from Solivita in the mens age 70-74 category. They played well in a division with 14 teams. Sadly, Jimmys playing partner hurt his leg and they had to drop out of competition. The Polk Senior Games served as another chance for Tanglewood players to hone their skills in preparation for the Heartland Games for Active Adults Pickleball Tournament that will be held at Tanglewood on Friday and Saturday, March 15 and 16. Pickleball has the largest registration of the 13 events which comprise the Games. This speaks volumes about the growing popularity of the sport.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAmerican racer Ashley Freiberg will join the EFFORTRacing Team as they battle for the 2013 IMSAGT3 Cup Challenge by Yokahama Championship. Freiberg will race the No. 51 Porsche GT3 Cup Car for the Texas-based team in her inaugural sports car racing season. Sports Car racing has a lways been a discipline that h as interested me, said Freiberg. At the end of the 2012 season I began to investigate different racing options. When the opportunity to compete in the IMSA Series with EFFORTRacing materialized it quickly b ecame evident to me that this was the right time for me to make a switch. They are a great organization competing in a highly competitive Series and we share the same goals to become Champions. Freiberg will join EFFORTRacings Driver Development Program, an innovative program designed to cultivate andg row young talented drivers and foster winning performances. Ashley is a perfect fit for t he EFFORTteam and its ongoing pursuit of excell ence said team manager, Hunter Wright. Her work e thic, preparation and professional approach all align w ell with our team concept and make her the perfect fit for our program. She brings an abundance of talent in all aspects of racing and were all very excited to get the season underway and start to get the results we expect. With a predominantly open-wheel racing background, Freibers careerb egan at the age of 13 in gokarts where she won five national championships before moving to the SkipB arber Racing Series where she became the first woman i n history to win an overall Championship. F reiberg continued to make history throughout her c areer as she became the first woman to win a Skip Barber National Series race at New Jersey Motorsports Park, the first woman to wina Skip Barber MX-5 Cup Race, and the second woman ever to be selected as a candidate for the prestigious Team USAScholarship Award. Danica Patrick was the first. Last season, she was chosen as one of six female racers to join the TrueCar Racing Women EmpoweredInitiative, and raced a full season in the highly competitive ProM azda Championship where she garnered six top 10 finishes. The Illinois native, who c urrently resides in Vermont, is looking forward t o her new challenge with EFFORTRacing and making a n impression in the sports car scene. I am extremely excited to be a part of EFFORTRacing this season as I make my debut in sports cars, and am truly appreciative of the opportunity they are giving me, said Freiberg. Although I have had limited time in the car, my past racing experience has helped me adapt to the Porsche GT3 quickly and I already feel comfortable behind the wheel and with the Team. While I know I have a steep learning curve, Im totally committed to this new chapter in my life thoroughly enjoying the new experience and having ab last driving this car, she continued. We are all confident that this year will be a strong one for all of us. F ormer sponsors, TrueCar and Bell Helmets, will be returning in support of F reibers sports car racing debut. T he IMSAGT3 Cup Challenge by Yokohama 16r ace schedule will begin the 2013 season with the first two races March 13-16 at the historical 61st 12 Hours of Sebring weekend at Sebring International Raceway. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, March 10, 2013Page B3 Wells Motor; 11.25"; 10.5"; Process color; -; 00028346 Cody Pearlman on second as a courtesy runner for Caruthers, who had singled, Flowers reached on an error that would score Pearlman and stake Avon Park to a 9-1 lead.

Friends will g ive afghan during National Library Week B y KELLI KENNEDY Associated PressMIAMI When actor Jonathan Pryce first received a copy of River Phoenixs last film DarkB lood,it sat unwatched on his desk for months. He worried about how he would feel reliving Phoenixs death,growingn ostalgic about memorable dinners the two shared after long days of filming in Utah and recalling the shocking 5 a.m. phone call telling him the young actorh ad died. s very hard to comp rehend for a while. It was a terribly sad time,said Pryce,who starred in thef ilm alongside Phoenix and Judy Davis. N ow,20 years later, Dark Bloodmade its U.S. premiere at the Miami International Film Festival on Wednesday,a testamentt o the endurance of 80year-old director George S luizer,who almost died before the film was completed,and a tribute to Phoenixs timeless charisma. Its uncertain whethert he film will ever go to a general release. Sluizer said negotiations are ongoing with the company that owns the movie. I n the film,Pryce and Davis play a jet-set Hollywood couple who travel through the desert desperately trying to savet heir marriage on a second honeymoon. They seek shelter in Phoenixs shacka fter their car breaks down, unaware that he intends to keep them as prisoners.P hoenix played Boy,whose wife died of leukemia from n uclear testing,leaving him alone and isolated in the desert. B ut the journey to complete the film is every bit as d ramatic as the story itself. Phoenix,a rising star from Stand by Meand My Own Private Idaho,was 23 when he died in 1993. Thec ause was heart failure after overdosing on heroin. R iver Phoenixs last film premieres in Miami

Creatures exist that are capable of doing remarkablet hings. For example, stick insects have the ability to give up a leg if a predator clenches on to it,t hen grow it back later. That capability certainly comes in handy in the wild. Although wea ll know these odd looking insects as stickbugs,they are actually in the order Phasmatodea. The name is from the Ancient Greek word phasma,whichm eans apparition or phantom.Stick bugs are difficult t o spot in nature,due to their ability to appear exactly like their surroundings. Thesei nteresting bugs inspire one to dig deeper and find out w hat else they are capable of. Phasmidscan grow to be fairly large. They range from about one inch to twelve inches in length. Some appear as twigs with long,c ylindrical stick-like bodies. Others look more like leaves, with a more flattened,thin shape.T heir bodies are marked with ridges and bark-like nodules that further camouflaget hem.Some species even have mossy orlichenous growths on them to make them even more difficult to spot in their surroundings. S ome of the species have wings and others are wingl ess. All stick bugs have mouthparts which project out from the head. Their legsa nd antennae are long and slender.Phasmids can see q uite well. In fact,they are able to perceive a lot of detail even in bad light. Since they are mostly nocturnal,this serves them well. As they grow and molt,their sight becomes even stronger. S tick bugs have many means of defense. Of course, their main protection comes from their camouflaging abilities; some can evenc hange color to match surrounding vegetation.They also perform a rocking motion to appear like a leaf or branch swaying in theb reeze. Should that fail, these clever bugs will play dead.Thats right! They take their cue from the opossum. They can enter a motionless state that they maintain for al ong period of time,fooling predators into thinking they a re no longer a suitable meal. When defense doesnt w ork,they move toward offense. If a predator is t hreatening,some species flash bright colors normally hidden within their dull covering. They also make loud noises to scare off threatening foe.Still others,especially while in the nymph stage,curl the abdomenu pwards over the body and head,which makes them resemble scorpions or ants, which are generally not attractive prey. If they areu nfortunate enough to be taken into the predators mouth,some species regurgitate a foul tasting substance. Still others ooze a nastys melling blood-like substance from their joints. Most stick insects can reproduce without males. Females lay anywhere from 100 to 1,200 eggs.She thend eposits the eggs in one of the following ways:she f licks them to the ground, buries them in the soil,or sticks them to vegetation. Ift he method of deposit is flicking them to the ground, t his is not quite as heartless as it sounds. The tiny eggs look like seeds keeping carnivores away. Ants are attracted to the e ggs because they have a fatty substance they crave c alled the capitulum. The ants will carry the tiny eggs to their nest and consumet he capitulum. Once this substance is consumed,the a nts lose interest but leave the eggs intact.The unborn stick bugs now have a warm, safe place to incubate where predators are no longer a t hreat. Stick bugs dont bite and a re no threat to humans or pets. They are fascinating to observe and make up part ofn atures diverse wonders. Stick bugs can perform remarkable feats Courtesy photo Stick bugs are difficult to spot in nature, due to their ability to appear exactly like their surroundings. Some appear as t wigs with long, cylindrical stick-like bodies. Others look more like leaves, with a more flattened, thin shape.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARKSixty-five new members of South Florida State CollegesTauE psilon chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK society accepted white roses at an induction ceremony March 1 in the SFSCU niversity Center Auditorium,a gesture symbolizing that they were embracing the PTK mission of devoting themselves tol eadership,academic excellence,and public service. PTK is the international h onor society for two-year college students. Its mission is to recognize and encourages cholarship by providing its members with opportunities f or developing leadership skills,intellectual growth, academic excellence,andn etworking with other PTK members. Membership in P TK is open to students who have completed at least 12 hours toward an associate degree and earned a 3.5 grade-point average. K eynote speaker Jennifer Blalock,PTKs chief student s upport officer,reminded inductees that making positive choices today willi mpact their lives in the future,pointing to other PTK m embers who made great accomplishments. One was PTKs own executive director,Dr. Rod Risley,who Blalock described as a shy and introverted young manu ntil he enrolled in a Texas community college and joined PTK more than 30 years ago.That educational experience formed the foun-d ation for his professional success and his lifelong advocacy for higher education. Blalock encouraged PTK m embers to take full advantage of the leadership and educational opportunitiesa vailable through service projects in their own communities and national confer-e nces that feature notable community college gradua tes,like former professional basketball star Dr. Shaquille ONeal. Make a difference,even if its only one day,a week, o ne hour,Blalock said. Leave your mark,your legacy at South Florida State College. Never miss a chance to give back and you willu ltimately be rewarded with boundless opportunities and r eward for your service and contributions. SFSC counselor Kim H emler serves as the Tau Epsilon chapters co-advisor a long with mathematics professor Jim McBride. PTK recognizes students for their superior academic success, but it is so much more than that,Hemler said. It pro-v ides leadership,service,and fellowship opportunities for students,which can give them the confidence to handle lifes challenges andr each their goals.Induction into the PTK also enhances a students ability to earn grants and scholarships. The Tau Epsilon chapter h as made its mark on the community over the years. One of its major service proj-e ct is Relay for Life,benefitting the American Cancer Society. This year,the chap-t er is raising funds by selling squares on a dedication quilt h onoring people who have been diagnosed with cancer. Each Christmas,the chapterc ollects gifts and delivers them to residents of an Avon P ark nursing home. In the past,the chapter has sponsored seminars for students and planted a Bismark palm tree on the HighlandsC ampus.

Caleb Jackson will plead guilty to felony hazing and manslaughter as soon as April,attorney Chuck Hobbs said at a hearing at the Orange County Courthouse. Jackson currently is being held in the Leon County Jail for violating his probation. Drum major Robert Champion died in November 2011 in Orlando after he collapsed following what prosecutors say was a savage beating during a hazing ritual. A dozen former Florida A&M band members have been charged with manslaughter and felony hazing. He has two hopes,the first being able to help the state with respect to understanding and getting a clearer picture of what happened the night Robert Champion died,Hobbs said. He is hopeful that he can play some small part in bringing closure to the family. Man to plead guilty in FAMU hazing death

C M Y K Dear Abby: I met a man 15 years ago who has recently come back into myl ife. I hadnt seen him in years. He says he wants to be with me and marry me, and I very much would like to be his wife. I live in one state,he lives in another and his work is in yet another state. He does travel not much but some. The problem is I think hes married to his job. He says he wants to be home with me once we are married. But then he says that once his work slows down, he wont earn as much. Im not sure how I can do this,with him working in one state and living in another. Sometimes I wonder if hes really in love with me or if hes stringing me along. How can I be with him if I never see him? If you have any advice for me,please let me know soon. Hearts Awaiting Dear Hearts Awaiting: If a little voiceis telling you this man may be stringing you along,make no hasty decisions. Its important that you visit him at his home at least a few times, get to know his friends and family,if he has any,and see how you would fit in. You also need to decide how you would spend your alonetime while hes working. If you are ani ndependent type, youll be able to fill the time. But if youre not,then face the fact that as much as you care for him,youd be miserable. So look carefully before you leap to the altar. Dear Abby: I am an educated,open-minded,wellspoken,well-mannered single man. I enjoy life and smile just about every waking moment. My problem is that people especially women think Im gay. I assure you, Im not! One woman recently lambasted me,saying her gaydaris never wrong,so I should just admit it to myself. This issue has prohibited me from dating,especially over the last few years, because ladies see me as a peer instead of potential partner. Also,people tell others that Im gay,so there are preconceived opinions. Please dont think I am anti-gay. I have several gay male and female friends. I dont think my speech inflections or mannerisms make people assume this. I dont know what to do.H elp! Straight,But Not Narrow in Alabama Dear Straight: Because there appears to be some confusion about your sexual orientation,I recommend you talk frankly with some of your female and male friends and ask what it is about you that has created this impression. Obviously there is something about the way you present yourself that's causing it,and the quickest way to find out what it is would be to ask direct questions of the people who know you best. Dear Abby: My dear friend,God rest her soul, had a saying I think everyone could benefit from: ou are the master of the unspoken word. Once it is spoken,it is your master forever. Comments,Abby? Discreet Midwesterner Dear Discreet: Your dear friend was a smart woman. Too many times we say things that we wish we could take back. The same is true for the written word.

Virgo should step away from heated discussion E ver noticed how the word whateveris loosely tossed around with an accompanying shrug?Both indicate a lack of enthusi-a sm or desire to engage in meaningful dialogue.Its as if to say,ou decide. It doesnt really matter. But one of my favorite B ible verses uses the word whateversix times accompanied by the word things.The verse is found in Philippians 4:8,N IV,and says,Finally, brethren,whatever things are true,whatever thingsa re noble,whatever things are just,whatever things are pure,whatever thingsa re lovely,whatever things are of good report,if there i s any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy meditate on these things. Whatevernow has positive expectation.We t hink upon what is true, noble,just,pure,lovely,of good reputation,virtue and worthy of praise with determined purpose.T herefore it takes exception to accepting without r egard any thought or philosophy.When we purposefully use our minds int his way,we are promised that the God of peace will b e with us. Recently,I heard each of these whatever things d escribed from their root word in the Greek. This verse is written to brethrenmeaning Paul was writing to fellowb elievers in Christ. When we think of truewe will meditate on Jesus who is Truth and forsake things that are false. N oble reminds us to ponder our relationships w ith one another and work toward unity in agreement. W hen speaking of what is right were to think of godly character and holiness (being set apart for God); innocence wholly conformed to the will of God. Pure thoughts cause us t o consider our bodies; chastity,innocence also, o f what we allow in our mind. We are to be masters of self-control in thesea reas through the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit. O therwise,yielding to tempting thoughts or actions may be small at first,but will accumulate and then strike a deadlyb low suddenly. The word lovely d enotes the affections of the heart.What is our desire?What am I preoccu-p ied with? When we think about s omething admirable,it is of good reputation; respectable.When we seto ur minds on those things, we then starve and forsake those that are not r espectable so the respectable can bear fruit. E xcellence and being worthy of praise begs the question,What is God doing with me and my highest potential? Whatt hings stir my heart and thoughts toward God? Our minds awakened in this way will produce Gods peace. It is a whateverI want to embrace. Selah Whatever re-thought J an Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.

C M Y K LIVING B14 SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, March 10, 2013 Photo courtesy of Getty TrimmingandEdgingtheLawnThe lawn mower cant reach every place that grass grows. So after mowing,youre often left with long grass sticking up around trees and flower beds,as well as along sidewalks,patios and driveways. When you trim,you leave your lawn neat and tidy. Trimming is cutting the edges of your lawn horizontally. It levels unmowed grass so its even with the rest of the lawn. String trimmers are effective tools for this job. A battery powered trimmer,such as the 36 volt Lithium High Performance String Trimmer with Power Commandcontrols from Black & Decker,is a lightweight option for many homeowners. Its battery holds a charge 5 times longer while idle compared to HPB18 NiCad battery packs,and it requires no gas to operate.To trim properly,keep a few things in mindMake sure the area youre going to trim is free of debris.Slowly move the trimmer from side to side,letting the tip of the line do the cutting.Keep the head two to three inches off the ground so you dont scalp the lawn and damage it.Cut thick or tall grass in smaller sections so you dont clog the trimmer.Dont let the line cut into trees and shrubs. This can damage them and make them more vulnerable to disease or hurt their growth.When youre finished,remove clippings and debris from the trimmer.Plan on trimming every mowing to maintain a neat appearance. When you edge a lawn,youre making vertical cuts to remove grass growing over sidewalks or patio edges. Some trimmers require a separate attachment for edging or will not convert to an edger,while many can simply be rotated to operate vertically. MoreEasy FinishingTouchesAdd decorative edging to flower beds. You can use hardscape materials such as brick, stone,plastic or steel,or you can plant living edging with attractive ground cover plantings.Mulch around trees,shrubs and flower beds. Not only does mulch keep weeds in check,but it can give those areas a neater appearance. Look for natural materials such as wood chips or cocoa hulls. While there are a variety of colored mulch options, keep in mind that dark,earth-colored mulch will put the spotlight on your plants,while brighter colored mulch will draw attention to itself.Keep hoses neatly stored with hose reels. You can find wallmounted reels,covered boxes,or even attractive pots to keep hoses from cluttering up your yard.Yard Clean-UpDo a periodic yard check to take stock of what needs to be picked up or removed. Remove twigs and branches.Pick up and store outdoor toys.Make sure pet items such as shelters, bowls and toys are clean and well-maintained.Remove dead plants from flower beds, planters and window boxes.Rake leaves and debris from flower beds, shrubs and around trees. Remove leaves,grass clippings and other lawn debris from sidewalks,decks,driveways and other hard surfaces with Black & Deckers 36 volt Lithium Cordless Sweepe r Vacuum. Its Power Commandcontrols speed for run time or power and easily con verts to vacuum mode when you need it. Taking a little extra time to put the finishing touches on your yard pays off. Youll boost your homes curb appeal and make your yard something everyone can enjoy.

Formal hedges are typically made up of shrubs with small leaves that get sheared into a smooth and uniform-looking surface. Informal hedges are more casual in appearance,and are usually made up of plants that bear flowers or fruit, and have wider leaves. Using a hedge trimmer such as the 36 volt 24-inch Lithium Hedge Trimmer from Black & Decker can make this task easy. The lithium-ion battery holds a charge up to 18 months. The 24-inch dual-action blade cuts branches quickly and has less vibration compared to a single action blade.Here are few tips for trimming a formal hedgeDeciduous hedges should be trimmed in late winter,while evergreens can be trimmed in mid-spring.Sloping the hedge so that the base is broader than the top lets sunlight reach lower leaves.To help you trim hedges evenly,use stakes and string to set up guidelines for height and width. Cut slowly,and use a smooth,up and down sweeping motion. If you apply too much pressure,the blades can tear branches instead of cutting them neatly.Cut the sides of a hedge first.Use a ladder to reach the tops of tall hedges.Keep trimmer blades sharp and clean.FAMILY FEATURES It takes more than just mowing the lawn to get a great looking yard. In addition to making sure you have healthy,well-cut grass,there are some finishing touches you should add so that your yard goes from so-so to something you can be proud of.
