Sinness, 11, a Sebring Middle School student, won the annual Heartland Idol junior competition in March. Following Idol, Sinness has been making a few appearances throughout the county showcasing her talents to local residents and visitors. After performing for music producer Jack Gale, Sinness was offered a music contract with Playback Records Nashville last month. While away in North Dakota visiting relatives for summer vacation in June, Sinness got a call from a fan of Heartland Idol who advised her that she should give Gale a call. When Sinness arrived back in Sebring a couple of weeks later, she met with Gale and sang a couple of songs in the music producers home. I had a real estate agent call me and tell m e about this terrifi c 11-year-old who sang at Heartland Idol. I really was not looking for anybody 11 yea rs old at the time, but I thought Id be courteous and talk to them. The lady gave my number to (her mother) Candy (Sinness-Farmer) and told her to call me. Candy called me and we set up a time for her to come over and sing, Gale said. She sang and she just knocked me out with how terrific she is.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING Highlands County 4-H ended the summer off with a bang on Aug. 13. Approximately 20 youth, ages 8-12, attended Get Fit Day Camp excited to learn about healthy eating and being active. Morgan Gibbs, 4-H Shooting Sports president, planned and coordinated the day camp with the assistance of Kate Stewart, 4-H assistant, and Lauren Hrncirik, 4-H agent. To start the day off, the youth were taken outdoors to compete in an obstacle race, which included jumping through hula hoops, avoiding many obstacle cones, and doing more jumping jacks than imaginable. Soon after the obstacle course, campers began their strength training class with 4-H mom and personal trainer Laura VanFleet. VanFleet brought along her four children (Julia, Katelyn, Elisabeth, and Zachary) who are also 4-H members, to assist her in the strength training class. Campers were taught how to properly do push-ups, crunches, squats, suicides, and much more. Soon after strength training class campers were introduced to yoga. Yoga instructor Nancy Dale gladly donated her time to teach a short yoga class with the youth. Dale taught youth several of the most basic yoga poses and educated them on the importance of stretching and flexibility. Lunch time was a big hit for all campers. They were able to use hands-on-learning to create their own healthy lunch. Campers worked together to make chicken kabobs with pineapple, red and green peppers, mushrooms, and marinated with a sweet and sour glaze. Campers were then introduced to quinoa; youth mixed the quinoa with avocados, corn, black beans, and then seasoned well. Unfortunately for most campers this was not their most favorite part of lunch, but definitely a new experience for them. Lastly, for dessert, campers had taken yogurt and froze it that morning to make a yogurt popsicle. This was the perfect end to a hot fun day. Once parents arrived for pick up, youth were instantly teaching them the new strength training exercises and yoga poses they had learned at camp that morning. Get Fit Day Camp was a major success in teaching the youth of Highlands County that being active and staying healthy is important and can be lots of fun.

Highlands County E mergency Operations D irector Tim Eures told c ommissioners he had met s everal times over the p ast three years in regard t o the mutual aid agreem ent providing fire prot ection services there. We wanted to make c ertain first and foremost t hat the citizens will have a consistent level of servi ce for their area, Eures s aid. He said the agreement m irrored a similar accord c obbled together several y ears back with the assist ance of now-commission c hairman Jack Richie for f ire coverage at Sun N L ake of Lake Placid. Earlier this year, the b oard of Sun N Lake of S ebring Improvement D istrict voted unanimousl y to enter into a contract w ith the West Sebring e ntities to take over fire p rotection. Reportedly, the p lan is to expand the West S ebring District in the c oming fiscal year to i nclude the Sun N Lake I mprovement District. The districts volunteer f ire station was closed J uly 12, and West Sebring V FD, which before prov ided after-hours mutual a id coverage, has been h andling the districts c alls full time since then. The business model t hat we had did not w ork, said SNL I mprovement District G eneral Manager Michael W right. We had employe es of other departments t hat would work eight h ours a day for us and t hen act as volunteers a fter 4:30 in the aftern oon Wright said the problem w as the getting calls a nswered by the districts f irefighters after hours. We found 40 percent o f the calls after hours w ere not answered, he s aid. He told commissioners t hat in one year there w ere 100 mutual aid calls t hat went unanswered. T hat, he said, was what c aused the district to seek o ther alternatives. As part of the plan, the i mprovement district will p rovide a satellite location i nside Sun N Lake for u nits there. I have asked that they ( Sun N Lake) provide a s tation location, Eures s aid. That would be both f or travel times and for i nsurance considerations. Commissioner Ron H andley asked if they also m ight consider in time c ohabiting with an E mergency Medical S ervices unit. Eures r esponded that would be p ossible, but would r equire a substantial County approves SNL fire changes See COUNTY, A4 Deal with West Sebring VFD gets OK By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Highlands County commissioners are coming down to the wire in efforts to cut the budget for the upcoming fiscal year. However, it appears that the drop in property values coupled with the lack of significant economic expansion over the past decade will leave them few options in bridging the gap between revenue and spending. The board will hold a budget meeting Thursday at 5 p.m. In previous budget workshops, commissioners have been able to find a few hundred thousand dollars in cuts from the boards side of the ledger. Of that, only $280,000 actually will come out of general fund revenues, which is the pot of money fueled for the most part by property taxes. Asession last week with constitutional officers found with those underwritten by property tax dollars indicating they had already cut their budgets to the bone, with no more savings to be realized without cuts to services. The so-called Truth In Millage, or TRIM, notices have been sent to taxpayers with two scenarios one at the tentative tax rate of 8.3 mils, or $8.30 for each $1,000 of taxable property values, the other at the socalled roll up rate of 7.2931 mils. That would be the millage needed to generate the same amount of tax dollars generated in the current 2012-2013 fiscal year. At 8.3 mils, property taxes would bring in about $5.5 million, while the roll up rate would bring in $830,000. Property taxes represent about 50 percent of the general fund budget (including current fund balance). In any case, it appears neither will bridge the gap between revenue and spending. Some of the problem comes in the nearly 2 percent decrease in ad valorem valuation as measured by Highlands County Property Appraiser Raymond McIntyre. One resident has pointed out that even at the tentative rate of 8.3 mills, his payments actually dropped by about $12 this time due to the devaluation of his property.

Forgive me, pontiff, for I have sinned. Is 65 years since last confession. Sixty-five years! said the pontiff. This is going to be a long one. Go on, Fidel. As a boy, I once cheat on an exam. Yes? As a teen, I once steal a melon from market. Yes? And in 1959, I and my rebel forces squash evil dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista so common man could share wealth of great Cuba, and to ensure sharing, I imprison and kill my enemies, seize most property and become new dictator of Cuba! Have you ever considered cutting back on your caffeine, Fidel? Then in 1961, great Fidel rise against Yankee imperialists and win victory at Bay of Pigs! For many years, Fidel squash American attempts to dispose of him. And today, Fidels great revolution continues! In my country, wealth is shared between rich and poor. Wealth, Fidel. What wealth? Cuba boasts largest fleet of 1950 Studebakers in all of Caribbean. Look, Fidel, confession is about truth. The truth is that your country is a wreck. Your buildings are falling down. Your people eat scraps. Nobody has ever ridden a flotilla from Miami to your shores. What you getting at, pontiff? You, sir, are on the wrong side of truth and history. How many communist countries have to fall before you realize that central planning doesnt work? Pontiff, you speak words of American capitalist pigs! Hel-loooo! Anybody home? Fidel, the Soviet Union has unraveled. Your $5 billion annual stipend is gone. Yet while your people live in squalor, you live in splendor, drinking wine and sleeping on silk sheets. Dictator must keep up appearances. But not only are your people poor economically, you have bankrupted them spiritually. Spiritually? You discouraged the practice of religion, Fidel. You seized paintings of Jesus Christ from your peoples homes. You shut down th e Catholic schools, even though you received an excellent education in one. And only in the later years of your dictatorship did you begin allowing people to worship God openly. With all due respect, pontiff, your mythical God is not solution to any prob lem. All problems are eco nomic. Only reason Cuba not richer is because of ev il American embargo agains t my people! Fidel, I dislike the U.S embargo because it hurts the poor worst of all. But the primary reason your people suffer is because o f you. You have imposed a system on them that stifle s freedom, creativity and spirituality. But Fidels revolution not complete! You will se e, pontiff! Day will come when forces of history overturn your mythical Go d and Cubas classless socie ty be heaven on Earth! Look, Fidel. There is right and there is wrong, and each is measured by our God. Whether or not you believe in God, the only way to prosper and b e at peace is to align ourselves with human truth. Truth? America is far from pe rfect, but its political syste m is closer to truth than you rs is, Fidel. Freedom is the only path to prosperity. An d if you set your people free great things will follow. Fidel thanks pontiff fo r hearing confession, but Fidel can never agree with you. And I cannot complete your confession if you are not contrite. All I can say is that it is good that you allow your people to hang pictures of Jesus Christ in their homes again. Pictures of Jesus Chris t? But Fidel thought they we re pictures of Fidel!

Fidel Castro goes to confession Guest Column Tom Purcell We are proud of the men and women w ho work for G4S, the private compan y contracted to administer APYA. T hey stood their ground until help a rrived doing so without the benefit o f any crowd control equipment. We are grateful to the Polk County S heriffs Office, which coordinated a c omprehensive response involving a pproximately 150 officers from 10 a gencies. Thank you to Highlands C ounty Sheriffs Office, the Sebring P olice, the Osceola County Sheriffs O ffice, Florida Highway Patrol, Florida F ish and Wildlife Conservation C ommission and the Department of C orrections, and to the State Fire M arshal and Polk fire and EMS units, w hich were also on scene. There are issues that will have to be d iscussed in the near future. Two of the m ost important are providing the academy staff with crowd control equipment like pepper spray and helmets and installing a video system. These decisions, however, are at the hands of the Department of Juvenile Justice. At his press conference Monday, Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said he has long opposed the DJJ rule prohibiting those kinds of tools at its facilities. We agree. There also is the question of who will pay for the damage to APYA. Whatever that decision, we are delighted the residents are already working to clean up the mess. One thing alarmed us, beyond the violence itself. Even before the incident was over rumors overran Facebook, many taken at face value. Some of the so-called information was wildly wrong and upsetting from a report that 113 juveniles had escaped to several law enforcement officers were shot. People need to remember Facebook is a social media designed for conversation. It is not a reliable news source. For corroborated facts, look to the professional news media. Which leads us to our last point today. The public owes a special debt of gratitude to Judd and his public information officers. Although the riot occurred Saturday night, updated information was issued while the incident was ongoing and throughout Sunday and Monday. Phone calls were answered and questions answered quickly. That is something we cannot say about the HCSO, which has the habit of hiding behind a veil of silence which is exactly how rumor mills gain traction. The sad truth is the worst and most malicious of the rumors are always the one people chose to believe. For the benefit of everyone, just give us the facts, maam, as Joe Friday would say. Community grateful for a job well done controlling riot S taff at the Avon Park Youth Academy faced their worst nightmare Saturday night when many of the resident juvenile delinquents rioted on camp us and briefly took over the dormitory area. Real enforcement needed for protection E ditor: The riot at the Avon Park Youth A cademy is an object lesson regarding s erious dangers associated with the forp rofit prison concept. The riot at this y outh facility reportedly caused hund reds of thousands of dollars in damage a nd several of the youths were treated a t local hospitals. All at taxpayer e xpense. The buildings damaged were owned b y, you guessed it, taxpayers. The comp any that operated the facility was i ncapable of dealing with the situation s o they called 911. Real law enforcement personnel from t he Polk and Highlands County S heriffs Departments. The Florida D epartment of Corrections, and many o ther local and state law enforcement a gencies responded and quickly b rought the situation under control. The c ost of this response, because of the p rivate companys error, is also on the d ime of the taxpayer. You may ask why the state even b others with the private prison industry w hen you see this type of problem o ccur repeatedly. The reason is simple, t he private prison industry spends mill ions of dollars lobbying politicians. O ne company, GEO corrections, even p aid for Rick Scotts inauguration. When the lobbying efforts result in a c ontract with the state, you can be cert ain that the contract terms are very f avorable for these private prison outf its. The politicians who benefit from the l obbying dollars claim it saves money. O f course, they never calculate the cost o f having public law enforcement bail o ut the private companies when these c ompanies fail, like at the youth academ y. The solution to this problem is simp le, the people of Florida need to tell t heir elected officials that they want r eal law enforcement officers and not r ent-a-cops protecting them and their loved ones. All the lobbying money and glitzy marketing used by the private prison industry cant hide the fact that public safety is not their first priority. Their profit is. Dana B. Orr Avon Park BouquetCools Automotive slogan is accurateEditor: Recently, I noticed that my cars air conditioning was not running as it should. I was terrified to take my car to a mechanic, estimating that the cost of the repair would be anywhere from unreasonable to astronomical in price. Desperate for some air conditioning, I was recommended to Cools Automotive in Sebring. I will be honest, I was skeptical because every other mechanic I have ever been to has ripped me off to say the least. Well, my faith in mechanics and business owners was restored today! Clinton Cool was beyond amazing as he went off to check my car and shortly came back with an answer. He was kind, honest, and shockingly wouldnt accept a payment. He said to me that if I would have went somewhere else, they would have said I needed a compressor and charged me around $800. I told him that was what I was scared of. To paraphrase, he responded, we dont do that here. He even popped the hood and showed me what was wrong with my car. Mr. Cool gave me a business card and wished me a happy weekend. Upon getting in my car with the refreshing A/C now hitting my face, I looked at his business card with the slogan Honesty with a smile listed on the bottom ... which got me thinking ... what is in a slogan? Afew catchy words thrown together to captivate and draw in customers? While this may be a clever marketing ploy to drive us in, do these companiesactions actually match their words? Often times, not. As a woman who was raised knowing her word is her bond, I do not use my words lightly nor do I make promises that I cannot keep. I highly respect people who have similar values, especially in a world where the crook seems to get ahead and cruelty instead of kindness is considered news worthy. When I see words, they mean nothing to me unless I also see actions. I can say that Mr. Cools slogan is 100 percent accurate and that I will be referring everyone I know to Cools Automotive. Its so refreshing to see that good people and good businesses still exist ... and locally to boot! Thank you for your kindness, it did not go unnoticed. I wish nothing but the best for you and your business in the future! Dawn Schrader Sebring EDITORIALPAGEPOLICYMake sure to sign your letter and include your address and phone number.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Wredes W ildlife Rehabilitation C enter Inc. has taken in a t hree-legged fawn that was f ound by a Wauchula couple i n mid-June. The couple had b een caring for the fawn t hey discovered with an i njured rear leg. David Wrede and his d aughter drove to Wauchula t o pick up the deer to transp ort it to the rehab center n ot knowing of the severity o f the deers injury. Thats when I noticed t hat the deer had a severed l eft rear leg. The leg was j ust hanging on by the skin, W rede said. After seeing that the leg h ad come apart at the ankle j oint, Wrede knew that the f awns leg had to be amput ated. The staff at Anderson A nimal Clinic were waiting f or the arrival of Wrede and t he young fawn. Dr. Anderson and I disc ussed removing the leg to save the fawn. We both knew that it was going to be touch and go to keep the fawn alive, Wrede said. The surgery was successful. Wrede said the fawn was able to get outside to drink water and eat two weeks later. The fawn is currently residing with the Wredes in their home on the facility grounds. Since its arrival at the rehab center, the young deer has begun learning how to live life without all four legs. The fawn is now up and learning to walk on three legs. It was put outside with the other fawns to help fit in with her own kind, Wrede said. Wrede now faces the challenge of what to do with the fawn after the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission sent an inspector to the facility. The department spoke of its concerns that the fawn will not be able to survive in the wild. We talked about the fawn and asked what we could do with her since it is a Florida state deer. (The inspector) said that the fawn may have to be put to sleep, Wrede said. Wrede made a suggestion to the FWC that would allow the facility to keep the deer since Wredes Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is already permitted for deer. Wrede is currently waiting to hear back from the FWC. Wredes Wildlife Rehabilitation Center is currently working on seeking petitioners to help aid in the fight should the ruling be that the fawn is to be put to sleep. For more information, to check the status of the fawn or to donate funds to help facilitate the fawn call 3852770. Donations may be mailed to Wredes Wildlife Rehabilitation (please make checks out to the center) at 4820 Wilderness Trail, Sebring, FL33875.

Back to school can be very expensive with new clothes, haircuts, and the seemingly unending school supply list. Over the last weekend, STR8 UPwas able to bless many youth with school supplies. We had many organizations and members of the community step up to fill a need. We were able to send our youth off to school with the supplies that are vital to their academic success. The kids and their parents truly appreciated it, Dana Telesco said. STR8 UPYouth Ministry would like to thank the Lake Placid Noon Rotary Club, the Masonic Lodge, Happiness Farms and the community members of Lake Placid for donating the school essentials. While it was a busy summer filled with fun and service projects, it is time to switch gears and put academics first. We are excite d to see new faces as we get an influx of new sixth graders.

We as a community use on average 5,000 gallons domestic and 25,000 gallons irrigation for a total of 30,000 gallons (per househould per month), it said. This far exceeds our allowable amount. Harris said he believes the permitted use of 150 gallons per day is too low, but that the district is demanding that we bring our numbers into compliance as expeditiously as possible. He suggested that reduction in irrigation would be the best way to accomplish the task. Continued from A1 Richie silent on utility issue c ommitment from Sun N L ake.

Florida Department of Juvenile Justice Secretary Wansley Walters led a press tour of the facility Tuesday to show how much progress has been made in cleaning up since the riot. The campus was quiet with few signs of the vandalism in the area reporters toured. While there was significant vandalism to furnishings, 95 percent of the total damage to 18 buildings was broken windows Brian Neupaver, vice-president of G4S, said. G4S runs the facility under a contract with DJJ. Most of the windows seen on the tour had already been replaced, but not with glass. Lexan, a plastic product, is being used instead. Neupaver said the contents of the medical building had been one focus of juvenile attention. They spent some time in here, he said. The refrigerators had been turned upside down and files holding medical records tipped over. Some over-the-counter medications were taken and vials of vaccine had been smashed. Packets of fake blood, used for training, had been sprayed on the floor. Again, by the time of the tour everything had been put right. Walters said she was pleasantly surprised at the facilitys condition during the tour. Its not what I was expecting to find, she said. The riot began at about 8:30 p.m. after a basketball game between two groups of juveniles, five from St. Petersburg and five from Orlando. Abet of three Cup ONoodles soup had been made. The losing team from St. Pete refused to pay up. This led to a small fight between the players that grew into a larger fight as young men near the basketball court joined the fray. The noise attracted the attention of boys in the dormitories, many of whom ran outside. It was at this time the situation spun out of control. Astaff radio and all the facilities golf carts were commandeered by the rioters. Fire extinguishers and television sets were thrown through windows of the 20 dormitories were completely trashed, Judd said. Juveniles were climbing up onto a roof, throwing things over the fence at deputies, and started two fires, one in a dumpster and the other a building housing records. Both fires were put out without incident. The initial 911 call to Polk County dispatch was received at 8:34 p.m. Acalm female voice tells the dispatcher, we have a riot situation here. We need some assistance here. The juveniles are out of control at this time. In the background, a male voice can be heard urgently ordering staff to, report to your units, I repeat, report to your units, report to your units. It took deputies about 20 minutes to reach the site because of the distance and roundabout drive to get to the academy thorough Highlands County. Judd told reporters Monday the first thing the PCSO did on arrival was secure the perimeter. Some deputies geared up and K-9 units were brought in. Using public address systems in police cruisers, the juveniles were told to stop fighting and come to the front gate. Many boys were not involved in the rioting and most of them came immediately. Eventually all did, but it took several hours before the most disruptive gave up. Every resident juvenile has been accounted for. The key, Judd said, was not to overreact. The damage was already done, the perimeter secured, and the law enforcement presence overwhelming. With tear gas and dogs on hand, all the juveniles were taken peacefully into custody. Several times Judd said the academy staff had done an excellent job and worked valiantly to contain the fighting as soon as it began. Judd also complimented DJJ for its cooperation at the time and since. DJJ rules prohibit special crowd-control equipment at the facility, so the staff had no resources, like pepper spray, to stop the violence once it got under way, he said. G4S staff tried really hard to quell the fight and were directly engaged until they were overpowered ... overwhelmed by the sheer volume (of juveniles runnin g wild), Judd said. We worked as a team. I cant sa y enough good about the G4S people. The bottom line, lets not forget, that it was the delinquents that caused (the riot) not DJJ, not G4S. By the time the it was over, about four hours after it began, seven juveniles had sustained injuries, the two most serious being a broken leg and a concussion. As of Monday, the boy with the broken leg was still in the hospital. Everyone else was treated and released. Of the 138 juveniles, the 64 suspected of being involved were transported to the PCSO South County Jail in Frostproof where they are being held apart from the adult population. G4S president Jim Hill said the young men without immediate charges should be returned to APYAby the end of this week. At that time, the DJJ will reevaluate them for po ssible reassignment to other facilities. Walters emphasized APY A is not a prison. It is an inte nsive vocational school for boys who have been in trou ble with the law. The academy is a secure detention ce nter, and while residents may move about the campus, the y do so with supervision. This program is misunderstood, Walters said. Theres a lot of good being done here. Vocational training is provided by Home Builders Institute. It provides seven different, hands-on trade programs. The boys typical ly spent six hours a day maintaining and repairing the campus.

Sinness signed the 18m onth contract to record h er first album with P layback Records Nashville o n July 24. Writers have submitted 1 0 songs for her to record o n her first album. Several o f the songs have been crea ted by writers who have w ritten songs for big-name a rtists. One of the main writers h as written songs for Elton J ohn and Reba McIntryre, C aitlin said. Though big names are not foreign to Gale or Playback Records Nashville, a young singer like Caitlin is. Shes the youngest ever, said Gale. We had a 12-year-old signed, but she beat him. Caitlin will travel to Nashville over Labor Day weekend to record her 10track album at the Playback Records Nashville studio. I got all of the songs within a week. Ive been practicing them. Im excited. Im a little bit nervous but Im really excited about recording, said Caitlin. Normally, we would have singers record all the songs in one day, but because shes so young we are going to break up the recording over two days. So she will be recording five one day and five the second day, said Gale. Were expecting it to be tremendous. Playback Records wouldnt spend all the time and money we are if we didnt think its going to be great. Sinness has been a singer since the age of 1. Her parents stated that at age 4 she began singing karaoke. I hope the album does really well. I want to sell a lot of them. I want to sing on stages and go on tours. I want people to ask me for my autograph and just love my songs, Caitlin said. The album will likely be released in late October.

Her stellar summer of play h as not only put her on the m ap, but will soon have her t raveling well across the m ap after her performances r esulted in an invite to play a t this prestigious event. The invitation was obvio usly well received, but t here were soon complicat ions as Griffin and her mom T racy were in Denver at the t ime, to watch the Solheim C up, and the realization soon c ame that visas would need t o be gotten to make the trip p ossible. Of course, they didnt f oresee this chain of events b efore their trip to Colorado. We had walked inside the r opes with Stacy Lewis at t he CME Titleholder tournam ent last year and her did a sked if we were going to t he Solheim, so he planted the seed, Tracy said. After much searching, we found a super package that allowed us to go. We realized that Kendall is 14 and this would be great inspiration for her. The next time the Solheim is in America she will be 18. And though this was quite an experience for her, the invitation for an even greater one was now in hand, and the dash was on from halfway across the country. An official letter of invitation from someone in China had to be procured, then brought to the Chinese consulate, and then the harried wait to see if it would all come together in time. The paper shuffling did all come together, in the nick of time as it turns out, as mother and daughter fly out this Saturday, Aug. 24. We are flying with Bailey Tardy and her dad, Tracy said. Bailey was the low medalist after two days at the US Girls Junior this summer. She is a junior in high school from Atlanta and is committed to Georgia. Im hoping that Bailey is yet another good example for Kendall to look up to. As for some of the perks of the trip, other than getting to play internationally on By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK It was a d awning of the new season M onday night as the South F lorida State College P anthers welcomed S outheastern University for a best-of-three scrimmage. The visiting Fire eked out a 2-1 win, bookending a 252 3 second-set loss with 251 9 and 25-21 wins, but in t he loss to the four-year univ ersity, South Florida s howed ample evidence that t his could well be a breakout s eason. We were excited, head c oach Kim Crawford said. We believe we have found o ur chemistry group and we h ave depth. Depth and something else t he Panthers have been lacki ng in recent seasons, height. For a change, the visiting t eam wasnt towering over t he South Florida squad. For while Southeastern certainly had plenty of size taking to the court, the Panthers had them matched, with a roster that features just one player under 5-foot8 and eight players ranging between 5-11 and 6-2. The difference this brought to the style and tempo of play was a definitive change that saw plenty of action at the net throughout the evening, with the young Panthers more than standing their ground or perhaps defending their air space. Which was another aspect to be gleaned from this opening match, South Floridas youth. This was basically a match between a high school team against 20and 21-year olds, Crawford noted of her squad that has just two returning players from a season ago. The rest are high school grads who have been practicing together for about two weeks. Which would explain some of the rough edges that were seen. We had a rough start with our outside hitters and our setter connecting with our middles, Crawford said. And there is some adjusting to new positions. Some girls that were used to playing middle are moving to the S PORTS B SECTION News-Sun Wednesday, August 21, 2013 NASCAR This WeekP AGE B3 By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAnew era is underway at A von Park, though that s eems to have been a comm on theme in recent years, w hich new head coach W ade Jackson readily a dmits as his Devils prep f or the 2013 football seas on. It is unfortunate that our s eniors will have their third c oach in the last three y ears, the latest in the hera lded Jackson coaching line s aid. That is just the way t he ball bounces sometimes, b ut I still expect them to s tep up as leaders and help i n changing the culture. It is a culture born of d own seasons, with Avon P arks last winning camp aign coming in 2006. And Jackson, who saw a d ream realized and is in it f or the long haul, is already s eeing that take shape, in a h urry. We have gone from havi ng some individuals on our t eam, to growing together as a unit this summer, he said. Moreso and much sooner than I ever thought it would. And so the attitude is seeing rapid improvement, but in order to continue, production and progression on the field will need to be seen. And while Jackson sees there are areas to work on, he also knows where the Devils will be strong. I think our offensive line will be big enough to handle most teams that we are going to play, he said. We will have a ball-control type of offense. We need to stay on the field and eat up some clock to give our defense a break. Given the school and roster size, Avon Park will be seeing a lot of players doing work on both sides of the ball, hence the need to control the flow and time of games. Red Devil rebuild is under way See DEVILS, Page B4 Courtesy pho to Left to right, JasoneDeWitt, KatelynnStoll and Sarah Hunnicutt were guests on Ed Lynchs Sports Talk show on Saturday, Aug. 17.

Lady Panthers show big potential By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentOne match, following one day of play, stood between 60 Sertoma patrons and the end of yet another spectacular summer season. After Fridays scores rolled in, the young golfers were reseeded and returned to Sun NLake Country Club for the last match-up of the season. Among the low scores was Rhett Pooley, who managed to hold on to first place in the boys1718 division after bringing in a two-day score of 148.

Sarah Liles kept the pace to win the girls1418 division as she carded a 174, with Chloe Nelson and Meredith McKenna both moving themselves up in the ranks after the second day put them at 176 and 183, respectively. The girls in the 11-13 group all held on to their placings, with Ashley Engle finishing at 83, Hannah Revell at 115, and Alyssa Jordan at 134. Ashuffle in the scores after day two regrouped the 15-16 boys, with Ben Tubbs finishing almost ten strokes under his first score to bring in a card of 167. Just one stroke shy of first place was Andrew Wally with a 168, who was trailed by a 172 from Matthew Arnan. Also locking in their placings from the first day were the boys of the 13-14 division, with leader Seth Hamilton carding a 99, Scott Hamilton carding a 104, and Julian Crozier carding a 144 for the event. Beckham Donovan he ld the lead of the 11-12 boys with his rounds totaling 104.

Sign up for one of them a nd go on the second one for 2 5-percent off. Aug. 24, Noon Hillsborough River We will meet and launch f rom John B Sargeant Park o ff of Hwy 301 in Tampa a nd paddling down to Trout C reek Wilderness Park. We will make a stop halfway down at Morris Bridge Park for lunch. Bring your (waterproof) cameras and be on the lookout for gators, turtles and birds Oh my! Aug. 31, 10 a.m. Peace River We will meet and launch from Brownville Park north of Arcadia and paddle down to the public boat ramp off of Hwy 70. This is a full day (4-5 hr) paddle downstream with a fairly swift current. Be prepared to stay in the kayak for the entire trip as high water levels may not allow us to get out. Pack a lite lunch that you can eat while traveling. All trips are $39 per person (single or tandem kayak) and includes kayak, equipment, tour fee and shuttle Cost is $10 per person for those bringing their own kayak (except Lake Jackson trip) which includes tour fee and shuttle All reservations must be confirmed via phone or email at least 24 hours prior to trip. Kayaking is a water activity, you will get wet so dress appropriately. Sebring Kayak Tours reserves the right to cancel any tours that do not meet the minimum amount of participants. We do not typically cancel tours due to rain unless we encounter dangerous weather such as thunder/lightning. Sebring Kayak Tours two more August outings And toward that end, Jackson will rely on his coaching staff to help do that. We have a good group of coaches that can make adjustments to what is not working, he said. If we are putting our kids in positions where they cannot succeed, we are going to have to adjust. I have always heard that the best coaches make adjustments at halftime, and I think we have the coaches that can do that. Which is crucial for this season and the program overall as Jackson looks to move it forward and regain the status that the Red Devils reached in the past. But when a program suffers for a few years, interest and support from potential athletes can wane. And while great success right out of the gate cannot be assured, steps in the right direction are sure to be seen as both coaches and players are putting in the work. The team will certainly be tested early on, have itsfeet held to the fire with games at Frostproof, home against Mulberry and at both Fort Meade and Cardinal Mooney. And while those games will be trying battles, they will have Avon Park more than ready for a tough, though not daunting District 6-4Aschedule. Sure, playing at Lake Placid, and hosting both LaBelle and Clewiston are not exactly easy pickings, the district overall seems pretty evenly matched. And while the Devils might be digging out of a deeper hole, Jackson and his staff will have them ready to play and work toward rebuilding Avon Park glory. I know these kids and I know what they are giving us in practice, he said. They understand what were trying to do.

One area tha t should always be checked is the number of calories in a lo-cal snack and, more importantly, always read the number of servings in that calorie count.

It was the birthday of our Queen Mom, Mary Sue Teague, and she received a creme brule in her honor.

Page B8News-SunWednesday, August 31, By LEANNE ITALIE Associated PressNEWYORK Emily O ster isnt a baby doctor. S hes an economist and a m om who wanted to know m ore about all those rules h anded down to women after t he pregnancy stick goes p ink. Only two cups of coffee a d ay! No alcohol. Beware d eli meats. Being pregnant, she said, f elt a lot like being a child, s o she decided to take a deep d ive into research covering e verything from wine and w eight gain to prenatal testi ng and epidurals. What she f ound was some of the mains tays of pregnancy advice a re based on inconclusive or d ownright faulty science. To this data-cruncher, an a ssociate professor in the U niversity of Chicagos b usiness school, those magic al nine months became a q uestion of correlation and c ausation. Some of her conclusions? W eight gain during pregnanc y is less important than a w omans starting weight and n ot gaining enough may be m ore harmful. Light drinki ng is fine (up to two glasses o f wine a week in the first t rimester and up to a glass a d ay in the second and third t rimesters). And much of the e vidence supports having t hree to four cups of coffee d aily, which made Oster v ery, very happy. Theres more, of course, a nd not all of it runs counter t o standard medical advice. A nd she happily reports in Expecting Better, her book c orralling all the research for o ther women to share, that h er 2-year-old daughter, P enelope, is healthy and h appy. The book, from Penguin P ress, is out this week. A c onversation with Oster: AP: Have you written t he Freakonomics of p regnancy? Oster: I think its right t hat it feels a little bit like Freakonomicsbecause S teve (Levitt) and I are both e conomists, but the goal here w as really to write down an a pproach that was right for m e. The approach being t hinking carefully through a ll of these decisions, getting t he best data that you can a nd then structuring the d ecision in a way that takes i nto account your personal p references, tolerance for r isk and all the kinds of t hings that we should be t hinking about every day. AP: Do you anticipate blowback from women and doctors because youre an economist and not a medical professional who helps manage pregnancies? Oster: For sure but I certainly do not envision women reading this book and saying, Oh, like, I can deliver my own baby now, right?I think that theres a real sense in which pregnancy should be something that you do with your doctor, but I think that for a lot of women the time you have with your doctors is limited and it can be difficult to get all of the answers to your questions. AP: Are most pregnant women ill-informed? Are doctors and otherpregnancy professionals lax in keeping up to date on research that might lead to more specific recommendations? Oster: I think we see sometimes where practice lags behind recommendations. Not all practitioners, obviously. As an example, in the case of prenatal testing, even though more recent recommendations dont favor the 35-year-old cutoff as much, thats still a highly practiced thing, so I think theres a sense in which there is some slow creep of knowledge. I actually think pregnant women are really wellinformed but I think that theres a tremendous amount of confusing and conflicting information out there. You could read every pregnancy book and every pregnancy website and come away thinking on some topics I have no idea what the real facts are. AP: Isnt that what the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is for? They have committees to vet research and keep up to date. Oster: Yeah, it is, and actually in a lot of cases I found that women would do quite well to read the ACOG opinions. There were a few cases where I thought perhaps they were overly cautious but actually theres a lot of settings in which I think that would be a great place to start. There are certainly times in which practice hasnt really caught up to those opinions. Alot of the choices that women need to make in pregnancy, its sort of not possible for ACOG to tell them the right answer. For example, if you think about prenatal testing youre thinking about a case in which youre trading off more information about the baby for some small risk of miscarriage. Ultimately that needs to be combined with womens own ideas about how they feel about a miscarriage versus how they feel about a developmentally delayed child and thats not something a recommendation can tell you. Thats something you need to learn to think through on your own. AP: That leads me to the vices, including alcohol. You and ACOG differon that one. ACOG recommends no alcohol. Oster: I think we can all agree that heavy drinking and binge drinking, even occasionally, is very dangerous, and I certainly say that in the book. What I found is there are a large number of quite good studies with a lot of women that show having an occasional glass of wine does not seem to pose a problem, that children of pregnant women who drink occasionally have similar or in some cases even better outcomes than children of women who abstain. This is a very personal choice. In some other countries the recommendations are its OK. AP: When in this country did pregnancy become this exercise in self-denial? Are women needlessly suffering? Oster: I think sometimes. I think weve moved this way over time and in some ways its very good, thinking through pregnancy and parenting in a thoughtful and careful way. I think thats great. But I think there is, sometimes, this kind of shaming aspect to pregnancy. Thats maybe not so productive. AP: The editors at have already called some of yourrecommendations flat-out dangerous to pregnant women, particularly yourviews on alcohol and caffeine consumption. Oster: Many of the OBs that I have spoken to and many of the women who I have talked to about the recommendations from their doctors have told me that the doctors say, Yeah, its fine to have a couple glasses of wine.This is a conversation which will continue to evolve. AP: What were some of the surprises when you started digging into the research? Oster: One thing that came up that I found quite surprising is that a number of women that I knew who have been pregnant were pu t on bed rest. When I started looking into that more I found the evidence doesnt really support any benefit from bed rest in terms of preventing preterm labor. I think that lately doctors hav e started moving away from that pretty extensively. It has some negative impact, particularly around issues of muscle atrophy and other medical reasons. AP: Should women trust their doctors? Oster: Absolutely. But women have a responsibilit y to learn things about this process for themselves so they can actively participat e in this conversation with their doctors. AP: What are yourtop five fallacies about pregnancy? Oster: One is that much o f the evidence suggested an occasional drink is OK. Bed rest is not a great idea. Gaining too much weight may in fact be less risky than gaining too little weight. Sushi is OK. And coffee in moderation is fine And in terms of toxoplasmosis, which is a parasitic infection that can cause birth defects, when I looked at the data on this, theres actually no evidence that women wh o clean the cat litter box or have cats are more likely to get this, but I do see some links between doing a lot o f outdoor gardening and having this infection. There are all kinds of animals that might poop in your garden. Not just cats. Coffee, wine and sushi! New pregnancy book says OK HeresSome subscribeto forjustpenniesaday...r Your complete source for all your local news & entertainment Metro A new book Expecting Better challenges some of the long-standing advice doctors have given pregnant women, but many say the author is wrong. Many say books ideas could be dangerous Books By MAE ANDERSON Associated PressWhen reclusive director S tanislas Cordovas beautiful 2 4-year-old daughter Ashley i s found dead under mysterio us circumstances, grizzled i nvestigative journalist Scott M cGrath takes up the case in M arisha Pessls gothic thriller Night Film. Cordova, modeled on cult f ilmmakers like Stanley K ubrick and Roman P olanski, is known for horror m ovies with names like Thumbscrew and At Night A ll Birds Are Black. His m ovies seem to affect people s trangely and are rumored to s how real violence, and he h as been disavowed by mainstream cinema. Agroup of rabid fans dissect his movies obsessively and show them at secret screenings at night. As McGrath and two 20something partners he picks up along the way delve deeper into Ashleys death, they all get sucked into the sinister world of Cordova, which includes a psychiatric ward, black magic and a sprawling, deserted compound in upstate New York known as The Peak. Pessl, who won critical raves for her 2006 debut novel, Special Topics in Calamity Physics, knows how to keep the creep factor simmering on low while the plot thickens, but ultimately she is more interested in storytelling than scares. She interweaves the narrative with visuals such as reprinted websites, photographs, magazine articles and typed-up notes that all deepen the Cordova mystique. At nearly 600 pages, keeping track of the novels twists and turns can be exhausting, but Night Film is never boring. And some set pieces are exhilarating, including one near the end when McGrath finds himself stumbling through an endless maze of perfectly preserved Cordova movie sets, increasingly unsure if he is still investigating Cordovas death, or inside a movie himself.

Paternal g randparents are Rosalba Celebrations Births Associated PressLONDON His newborn son is a little bit of a rascal and car seats can daunt any dad, Britains Prince William says. The second in line to the British throne has described his joy at introducing his son to the world on the steps of a London hospital last month and about his nerves over fitting the car seat securely into the Land Rover before driving off. William told CNN in his first interview since Prince Georges birth on July 22 that both he and the Duchess of Cambridge couldnt wait to show off their son when they emerged from St. Marys Hospital to meet the worlds media a day later. Im just glad he wasnt screaming his head off the whole way through, he said in an interview broadcast Monday. William was quizzed on a range of child-rearing topics from baby toys to diapers and sleep deprivation and acknowledged that his expert performance sliding his childs car seat into the back of the royal four-wheel drive was a welldrilled exercise. Believe me, it wasnt my first time. And I know theres been speculation about that. I had to practice, I really did, he said. William and his wifes assured, do-it-yourself performance in front of the hospital helped cement the couples image as the modern face of Britains monarchy. But William said the decision to take his own baby in hand and drive home in the glare of the international press was a way of establishing his independence. I very much feel if I can do it myself, I want to do it myself, he said. And there are times where you cant do it yourself and the system takes over or its appropriate to do things differently. But, I think driving your son and your wife away from hospital was really important to me. As for the nearly 1-month-old baby, William referred to him as a little bit of a rascal who h e said reminded him of his younger brother, Prince Harry. Striking a slightly exasperated tone familiar t o many new fathers, he said he wished Prince George would settle down a little. At the moment, the only legacy I want to pass on to him is to sleep more and maybe not have to change his nappy so many times. The interview is part of a one-hour CNN doc umentary, Prince Williams Passion: New Hope New Father, due to air on Sept. 15.

One thing t hat tends to scream summer i s a cold dip. AndIm not t alking swimming pools h ere, people! Some fresh c risp veggiesand a nice r efreshing dip makes for a p erfect summertime lunch. When its hot outside, you m ay be tempted to head to t he deli for yourfavorite d ips. But, nine times out of 10, t hose packaged food i temsare full of non-healthy i ngredients. Luckily, you can easily m ake yourown summer dips t hat can take a regular snack o r mid-day meal fromOK to r estaurant-worthy. Lets take a look at five p opular summertime dips a nd how you caneasily m ake them yourself. Tzatziki. Absolutely w onderful as a dip for fresh c ut veggies,tzatziki is also g reat on a sandwich, with t ortilla chips or on s omenicely grilled fish. To m ake this Greek dip, mix s ome plain Greekyogurt w ith a shredded cucumber, s ome olive oil, lemon juice, m incedgarlic and a pinch of dill. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy. Hummus. Ridiculously delicious, hummus is a great source of proteinand a very versatile dip. Great with fresh cut veggies, warm bread orcrisp tortilla chips, hummus is easy peasy to make at home.Traditionally made with chickpeas, lemon juice, olive oil and tahini,hummus is easy to tailor to your own tastes and dietary needs. For thepaleoistas out there, swap out the chickpeas and swap in some organicchopped zucchini and a bunch of fresh parsley. Yum! Ranch dip. Another classic dip for fresh veggies is the famous oldstandby: ranch dressing. Its not easy to find a version of ranchdressing that doesn?t contain GMOs, but it is easy to make your own.All you need is some Greek yogurt, a bit of apple cider vinegar, rawgarlic, fresh dill, sea salt and black pepper. Mix until you get ataste and consistency that you like and enjoy. Guacamole. More than just a dip, guacamole is great with chips, sure,but its also amazing on a sandwich, spread on burgers, on top ofchicken breasts, mixed in with spicy seasoned ground beef or justeaten with a spoon. So yummy! And its a cinch to make your own. Allyou need is a perfectly ripe avocado, fresh garlic, lemon or limejuice, cilantro and some salt. From there, you can just enjoy as is,or you can toss in whatever you like: lobster, crab, tomatoes,pineapple, red pepper, and so on and so forth. Baba Ghanoush. Quite close to hummus in the ingredient list, babaghanoush requires just a bit more labor. You start with roastedeggplant that must be chopped well (or it could also be blended if youlike a more smooth baba ghanoush). Add in some garlic, lemon juice,tahini, olive oil and spices of your liking. Traditionally, youd usecumin, crushed red pepper, a bit of basil and cilantro or parsley.Serve with cucumbers, tomatoes and/or pita bread. If you have picky eaters at home, if you can find a dip they like, itcan be a great motivator to try new veggies and meats. Have you heard about the 30-Day Paleo Challenge?

Two years ago, I met a man who is 12 years my senior. He is sweet, thoughtful and caring, and would do just about anything for me. What started as companionship has turned into a full-blown love affair. The problem is that he is married. His wife is not well. She has a chronic disease and other medical problems. The way he cares for her is what attracted me to him in the first place. He spends what time he can with me, but mostly he is there for his wife. I am OK with the situation, as I dont want him to leave her for me. I have tried breaking it off with him, but he gets me to take him back, saying he doesnt know what he would do without me in his life. He is very strong-willed. Abby, I feel like Im in the background waiting for her to die so I can take her place as his wife, and I hate this feeling. What should I do? Guilty in Kentucky DearGuilty: Your feelings are well-founded. You are waiting in the background for this mans wife to die. But what if she doesnt? You say you have never been good at choosing men, and I have to agree. Please dont think I am unsympathetic, but its time to ask yourself why you chose to get involved with someone who isnt available except for a few stolen moments. If marriage is what you really want, your priority should be to find a man who doesnt have the kind of previous commitment this one does. DearAbby: I have recently been contacted by an old boyfriend who is now incarcerated. He claims I was the love of his life and he thought about me often after our breakup. He is now asking me to become his pen pal and send him money occasionally. I have bitter memories of our relationship, so its hard to believe he cared for me as much a s he says. He is be gging me not to abandon him o r forget about him, but I dont want the role of pen pa l and provider. Ho w do I share my thoughts without hurting his feelings? Reluctant in Californ ia DearReluctant: If you are smart, you wont respond to him at all. I have printed letters from more than one prison guar d who wanted to warn kindhearted, gullible women that inmates send multiple solicitations of this kind in the hope that several of the recipients will send money. You are not responsible for this mans well-being. Since your breakup, your lives have obviously gone in polar opposite directions. My advice is to kee p it that way, for your own sake. DearAbby: What is th e proper way to dispose of leftover milk in your cere al bowl? To dump it out is wasteful, to spoon it up like soup seems a bit muc h, and to drink it right from the bowl seems rather cat like. Does the answer diff er if you are in your own kitchen vs. a restaurant or other residence? Got Milk in Sa n Francis co DearGot Milk: If youre in a restaurant, you should not lap liquid from the bowl. If youre at home anything goes. And if you have so much milk left in your bowl after the cereal has been consumed, yo u are pouring too much in and need to adjust the amount. Write Dear Abby at or P.O.

Woman considers her place in affair with married man Dear Abby Dinner Diva Leanne Ely By SANDYCOHEN APEntertainment Writer LOS ANGELES (AP) Lee D anielsThe Butler is serving up succ ess at the box office. Starring Forest Whitaker as a longt ime White House butler and Oprah W infrey as his boozy wife, the W einstein Co. biopic debuted in the top s pot with $25 million, according to stud io estimates Sunday. But the weeke nds three other major new releases, i ncluding the action romp Kick-Ass 2 , failed to find traction with fans. We expected to do well, but we didn t expect to do this well, said Erik Lomis, president of distribution and home entertainment for Weinstein Co., adding that The Butler is the companys first No. 1 debut since 2009s Inglourious Basterds. Even with a full slate of newcomers, last weeks top movies claimed the second and third spots in the box-office race. The Jason Sudeikis-Jennifer Aniston Warner Bros. comedy, Were the Millers, held onto second place in its second week of release with $17.78 million, while last weeks No. 1, Sonys Elysium, dropped to third with $13.6 million. It was tough if you were any other film opening other than The Butler, said Paul Dergarabedian of box-office tracker Kick-Ass 2, Universals tale of everyday teenagers who dress up as superhero crime-fighters, opened in fourth place with $13.56 million. Open Roads Steve Jobs biopic, Jobs, debuted in seventh place with $6.7 million. And Relativitys Paranoia, which stars Harrison Ford, Gary Oldman and Liam Hemsworth, didnt crack the top 12. Maybe it should have been Oprah Winfreys Jobs,Dergarabedian said. It would have had a better shot. The Butler serves box-office success at No. 1 News-Sun Wednesday, August 21, 2013 Page B11
