Rick S cotts office announced Friday. Polk was one of eight counties to r eceive funds. Highlands County,where a portion o f the 106,000-acre military base lies, r eceived $40,000,which will be used f or marketing,according to the a nnouncement. The Avon Park Air Force Range is t he largest bombing and gunnery r ange east of the Mississippi River. T he facility includes approximately 4 00 square miles of restricted airs pace. A study coordinated by the Central F lorida Regional Planning Council has b een under way since 2009 to exami ne potential land-use conflicts in a reas bordering the base and to look f or ways to eliminate or to mitigate t hose conflicts by liming potential d evelopment. Some conservation easements have a lready been purchased in Highlands C ounty to reduce potential developm ent of ranches adjacent to the base. In Polk County the main ranchland t hat has been under consideration lies o n the south side of Lake W eohyakapka slightly more than a m ile north of the bases boundary. In 2012 the Polk County C ommission authorized the Polk C ounty Environmental Lands Program t o attempt to acquire two tracts t otalling 4,480 acres either through an o utright purchase or purchase of a c onservation easement. By BARRY FOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Officials at the Sebring International Raceway have named their queen for this years running of the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. Wearing the tiara and the sash for the 2014 classic will be 23-year-old Logan Palmer. The Sebring native recently graduated from Florida State University majoring in History with a minor in Media Communications. Having grown up in Sebring,Palmer has been attending the 12 Hours for as long as she can remember. I havent missed a race since I was,like,4,she said. When I was very little,my parents would take me out for night practice on Thursday and when I got older I was allowed to stay for the whole time. Palmers father,the late Mark Palmer,had designs on being a driver himself,she said. He actually had his own car a Mazda and did some club racing,she said. I think he really would have liked to have raced the 12 Hours. Palmer admitted that while she has no personal favorite teams,she is partial to Sebrings most-winning marque Porsche. But really,I love the experience; it is a tradition with my family,she said. To be honest with you,I have a passion for this race. This is more than a race to me,it is a family tradition and I wanted to be Miss 12 Hours because of my dad I know hed be thrilled. Interestingly enough, Palmer is close friends with the two women who served as race queens over the past couple of years. Rickie Albritton was last years Miss 12 Hours and Hanna Shoop,who reigned over the endurance classic two years Logan Palmer named Miss 12 Hours of Sebring E.A.

By PHIL ATTINGER AVON PARK City c ouncil members are expecte d to make a final vote on a nnexing another five parcels i nto the city limits on M onday. The Avon Park City C ouncil already voted u nanimously on Jan. 13 t o annex five parcels into the c ity,for a total 15.55 acres t hat included 50 dwelling u nits at Banyan Woods A partments,north of Lake B yrd,and 40 units at the B rentwood Mobile Home P ark. Parcels include 3.1 acres at 2213 U.S. 27 N .,owned by Roy D. Waters. 1.3 acres at 2181 U.S. 27 N .,owned by Avon Park Inc. 4.6 acres at 1298 W. Gladiola Drive Banyan Woods Apartments. 3.9 acres at 1213 W. Stratford Road,owned by 1213 W. Stratford LLC. 2.65 acres at 700 County Road 17A,owned by Heartland Construction Inc. Those,along with Crystal Lake Golf Club,make 603 homes annexed in the last three months. Annexing Crystal Lake has brought the city into conflict with Progressive Waste Solutions, which claims to have a contract directly with Crystal Lake,despite the park now being in the city limits and eligible for city garbage service. City Attorney Gerald Buhr said the companys franchise with the county which would end with annexation should overrule any contract with park owner Mink L.L.C.,while the companys lawyer argues the opposite. Buhr said hes fairly certain that Progressive does not have an automatic renewal with the county. Unfortunately,neither one has found any case law to back up their arguments,so the matter has to go before a judge,Buhr said. The city council is waiting to hear from the judge on that matter. Phil Attinger can be reached at or 385-6155, ext. 541 and followed on Twitter @PhilAttinger.

Florida Blue made the donation to create an endowed scholarship fund for students in nursing and other allied health programs at all 28 of Floridas community and state colleges to meet the growing need for skilled nurses and allied health professionals and to attract students into the nursing field from populations that are underrepresented. SFSC has received the scholarship each year since 2006. Twenty-nine deserving Allied Health students were selected to receive Florida Blue scholarships this year, said Rebecca Sroda,associate dean,SFCC Allied Health/Dental Education. Program managers chose students from their programs according to pre-established criteria,with preference given to students from populations underrepresented in the workforce. This scholarship can be used for tuition, lab fees,textbooks,or any other expense that would contribute to their success. For some of the awardees, this is the only financial assistance they receive.

Life is an adventure book there is a hero,a quest,a holy grail, and,of course,a destination. We journey daily through t rial and tribulation,and t ravel great distances just to r each that aspired haven. O ne doesnt have to set sail a broad to the other side of t he world,or for that matter g o anywhere; rather a journ ey by definition is a learni ng experience,for everyt hing you do. To set a goal as simple as wanting to run a mile in under nine minutes is an adventure. As exaggerated as it may sound from something modest like running, one can acquire a vast amount of self-knowledge from it. For instance,I would go about having to run every single day and Id have to really build stamina and be motivated to reach that. So in truth,its not about the end result; its what you learned on the way to reaching that metaphorical or literal destination. There is a novel I read that really provoked my thoughts to think about this that way; the book,The House on Mango Streetby Sandra Cisneros. It tells the tale of a girl who lives in a lower class part of Chicago. Throughout the novel, Esperanza endures countless sums of hardships and adversities. She takes each of her misfortunes,whether it is good or bad (there is a lot of bad),and alternates them in to learning experiences. To see the light when it is dark,seize the bad to make it good,to push yourself and press on with the end in mind,but above all learn from everything you do that is a journey. Don William Jr. says, The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey,not the destination. And though we think our victory is a long way ahead, just note that is part of the journey of life. Obstacles are what make a quest so unique and ever so interesting. For without rigor there is nothing to learn,nor nothing to gain. Every step we take is a mark made,so jump every hurdle and learn from all you do,because life is an adventure book. You are the hero and learning is your mission. Gauri Persad is a student at Sebring High School. The NewsSun encourages the countys youth to express their thoughts and opinions. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the NewsSun staff. The first point may be the m ost important. The debate o ver government surveill ance and the publics react ion too much spying,not e nough oversight is a h ealthy sign that Americans v alue their civil liberties and w ant to place limits on intrus ion by an unchecked b ureaucracy. The point of the p residents speech on Friday w as to say:Message r eceived. In the panic after 9/11,the w arnings of civil libertarians t hat privacy rights were b eing trampled fell on deaf e ars in Washington. The e xcesses of the Patriot Act, i ncluding so-called National S ecurity Letters that demand that information be turned over without a subpoena which the Herald opposes were enacted into law. Some provisions have been used to justify some of the most worrisome disclosures about government spying,including the wholesale collection of individual phone records and emails. With all this in mind,Mr. Obama tried to split the baby in half,retaining the post9/11 programs but ordering greater oversight and scrutiny. He would keep the metadata,but,in the long run,it should be stored by private companies,like telecommunications firms. Analysts who want to check phone records will require permission from the federal surveillance court in each instance. The FISA court should disclose decisions affecting privacy rights. These are all sensible changes,as is the promise that the phones of allied leaders wont be tapped although wed feel more sanguine if foreign leaders offered reciprocal promises to rein in their own cybersnoops,both government and freelance. Ultimately,Congress will have to decide how much intrusion is too much and enact reforms rather than allow this president to impose rules that he or a successor can later quietly roll back. Expect pushback from the national-security bureaucracy. The NSA wants to keep its phone records. One FISA court judge has already declared that privacy advocates arent wanted or needed in the courts secret debates. Government investigators hate the idea of requiring case-by-case warrants to eavesdrop on phone content. The ball is in Congress court. Online: So you are the governor of a state. Like most governors,you probably want to put your state in the best possible light. You want to attract businesses and taxpayers to your fine state. So would you go out of your way to tick off a large group of potential residents? Apparently this was Andrew Cuomos strategy. According to an article I read on,there are certain Americans that arent welcome in the Empire State. In a radio interview earlier this month,Governor Cuomo said the following in regards to the Republican Party: Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves ... Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life,pro-assaultweapon,anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if thats who they are and theyre the extreme conservatives,they have no place in the state of New York,because thats not who New Yorkers are. Not surprisingly there was a lot of pushback from state Republicans at these remarks. Last Monday,Sean Hannity, who is based in New York, threatened to move to Florida or Texas and take all his money with him. (Side note:CNN apparently didnt feel this was a story worthy of running on its website,as a search for it demonstrated. I find that quite interesting,given that there is a Chris Cuomo who works for them. According to,he is Andrew Cuomos brother.) The governor tried to soften his remarks in an open letter to the New York Post,which ran the story last Saturday. According to,in the letter he states that his remarks were distorted and that what he really meant was that an extreme conservative candidate couldnt win in statewide elections. He also claimed that hed said in the interview that it was okay to be anti-gun control and antichoice,as he respected both positions. OK. Whatever. To be honest,Governor Cuomo, your initial remarks sure ly dont sound very respectful of those positions. I am a native New Yorker. I was born in Brooklyn (though years away have killed my accent) and spent the first 13 years of my life in the state,three of them on Long Island. By the governors standards,I am apparently not welcome to return. That is a shame,since Id like to visit the state of my birth at some point. And Id spend money there,mone y Im sure the governor would be happy to have. My best friend Tina asked what the outcry would be if a conservativ e governor had stated that extreme liberals were no t welcome in his/her state? Indeed there would most likely be cries of intolerance across the land. It would surely be seen as a poor choice of words. And I bet CNN wouldve covered it. Be that as it may,I think Governor Cuomo should give serious thought to an apology. I doubt any state can afford to alienate a large group of constituents,and while his state as a whole does lean left,that doesnt mean there are no conservatives living there. Conservatives who might resent having the welcome mat yanked out from under them. As in,they just might pack up and leave,taking their votes and their tax dollars right along with them. And if he doesnt back down well,if you live in New York,are a conservative and reading this,let me suggest Florida as your new home. We take everybody no matter their political persuasion,have no state income tax,and while it is chilly at the moment we dont get frigid like the Northeast does. Think about it.

This time,sisters Brittany M cGuire and Candice Anderson w ant to set up a permanent buildi ng for their schools,with 17 classr ooms along with a library,a cafet eria,a music room and an auditor ium. They have posted a plea on G with a goal of $ 3.5 million. Thats the goal for the first p hase,said Anderson,27. If they d ont get enough,theyll do a s maller version. But the whole idea is to do a way with the portables because w e cant expand with those, A nderson said. When the two started a pres chool in September 2008 on A M iracle Avenue,they had six child ren,McGuire said. Within a m onth they had 12,but when it g rew to 16,they capped it. M cGuire was expecting,Anderson s aid,so they wanted to keep the c hildren to a manageable number. Before we opened,we anticipated it being a preschool for 3to 4-year-olds with 36 kids. That would make us happy,Anderson said. Within that first year,we found out that students didnt want to leave. They made provisions to expand every year if needed,and as it worked out,they needed it. Parkview Pre-K is a for-profit venture,but Parkview Prep Academy Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) Christian-based school,Anderson said. McGuire,29,said the schools now operate out of two houses at 107 and 109 A Miracle Ave. Eventually they had to expand the houses and buy 17 acres next door to the homes to accommodate three modular classrooms. Now they have between 109-112 students,she said,split between the two schools. They have 22 staff members,with 10 full-time teachers,and the remaining staff comprised of teaching assistants,an art teacher,a physical education coach/assistant teacher and both a foreign/sign language teacher and a music teacher who each teach half of the year. Keeping class sizes small helps teachers to give attention to students and provide the level of education that the two schools strive to have,McGuire said. They have no more than three or four 1-year-olds in a classroom,with only 12 in each 3and 4-year-old class,she said. The academy keeps classes to 15. For next year,we already have people calling us every single day for a spot,Anderson said. We already have a waiting list of at least 15 growing every day. She expects to hear from more parents by April or May. The way we run our school (is) to help students who dont do well in a public school environment, McGuire said. They seem to do better. Its peaceful. The schools use an individualized curriculum with small classes to keep students challenged. Classes even have web cameras that parents can log into to watch their kids in class,McGuire said. Being a Christian school, Parkview also has Bible study and a prayer circle daily in each class. Right now,with only portable classrooms,the school doesnt have a single place to do a daily service. Thats why they want a common area and auditorium,she said. McGuire also said city code prohibits a private school from having portableclassrooms,so they set them on concrete foundations. Avon Park city code wont allow them to add any more,McGuire said,so if they want to expand, they need to build. McGuire said the $3.5 million goal includes $2.5 million or more for the building and approximately $500,000 to $1 million for additional desks,furniture and equipment. She said one students parent has a degree in architecture and is helping to work up the plans. There are plans on the site,but Anderson said those have been changed since they were posted. For example,the plans include a basketball gym,b ut the newer plans dont have a gym, and have repositioned such facilities as the library and auditorium. Were definitely excited, McGuire said. Were just trying to finalize getting plans drawn. Anderson said she and her sister could have considered fighting the city code or looking for a loophol e to use more permanently-installed portable classrooms,but decided against it. I dont want to spend my money doing that. Id rather it go to the school,Anderson said.

c il on Wednesday,Kris D eLaney said it is wrong a nd unprecedented to conside r voting on a proposal to c hange the name of a street dedicated in honor of s omeone so important to the h istory of the city. He also said his grandfat her led a selfless and comm unity-dedicated life for 87 y ears. Kris DeLaney said Friday h e hopes to have as many f amily members at Mondays m eeting as possible,though m ost people who knew his g randfather including his p arentsgeneration have p assed on. Were a little sorry we d idnt document his history b etter,Kris DeLaney said. Part of the question is who w as he?. His grandfathers history, t hough all over local newsp apers for 30 years,was preI nternet. Delaney Avenue w as named for him on Nov. 2 5,1965,and most people w ould need to visit local a rchives or the Avon Park D epot Museum to learn a bout his contributions. Kris DeLaney has learned t hrough a family scrapbook a nd through local history b ooks that his grandfather k new how to work with peop le and get things done. He had an amazing reput ation. I didnt know how big u ntil I looked it up,Kris D eLaney said. We knew h im as a laid-back guy,smili ng,sitting on the porch a l ow-key person. He was named Highlands C ounty Man of the Year in 1 962,but it wasnt until after h is death on Nov. 18,1979, t hat the elder DeLaney was r ecognized as a founder of S outh Florida Junior College now South Florida State C ollege. Edgar DeLaney Sr. first m oved to Avon Park in 1919 t o serve as superintendent of M utual Crate Company,a m anufacturing operation on t he south end of Avon Park. H istorian Leona Maxwell w rote in her 1980 book, The First Hundred Years of A von Park,that he was unpretentious,prestig iousand guided many l ocal people,especially duri ng the Great Depression. He and his wife,Stella, w ere also among the f ounders of Florida Avenue B aptist Church,Kris D eLaney said. Delaney Avenue got r enamed once before for K ing,on Jan. 28,2003 as p art of the countys E-911 s treet renaming project. H owever,letters from Kris D eLaneys father,Edgar D eLaney Jr.; his uncle,Leon D eLaney; and former mayor a nd long-time resident R obert Barben convinced the c ity council on Feb. 10,2003 t o change the name back in a 3 -2 vote. Then-Mayor Tom Macklin a nd Councilwoman Brenda G ray,now Brenda Giles,diss ented. In his letter,Barben said h e had served with the elder D eLaney on the city council a nd that the man had devote d his entire life to Avon P ark. However,members of the S outhside community r eferred to that reversal w hen they requested on Jan. 1 3 that the city rename D elaney Avenue once again f or King. Aljoe Hinson with the H ighlands County NAACP s aid then that he is embarr assed Avon Park doesnt h ave a street named for K ing. Maria Davis, S outhside Avon Park resid ent,said petitioners chose D elaney Avenue because it r uns through the Southside b usiness district. She also said people were upset that the request 11 years ago was knocked down. Options given both then and now include renaming Delaney Avenue south of Cornell Street,Delaney Avenue north of Lake Verona,Memorial Drive inside city limits,Verona Avenue or Main Street. The city has sent letters to more than 100 residents and businesses on South Delaney Avenue asking them to give opinions at Mondays city council meeting.

DeLaney Sr. Then-president of the Avon Park Chamber of Commerce George Haynie reported that he had surveyed every resident of Fairfield Avenue and found they all agreed with changing the name. Provided to News-Sun A news clipping from more than 40 years ago shows where affordable housing for the elderly will go on the southern shore of Lake Tulane. Then-Mayor Edgar A DeLaney Sr. was among the people who helped bring the federal project to Avon Park. At the time,county officials said the work would probably need financial support from federal programs working to establish larger buffers around military bases. Gaye Sharpe,Polks natural areas manager,said the money will provide a local match for the $800,000 Polk County has received through an application base officials made to the Readiness and Environmental Protection Initiative,which is a federal program that helps to fund buffer purchases. She said more money will be needed to complete the project,explaining Polk County is also seeking funds through the states Florida Forever program. Were trying to pull together a variety of partners,she said. This is good news. This is the latest grant state officials have provided to Polk and Highlands counties in connection with this effort. In 2011,state officials awarded $200,000 each to Polk and Highlands counties. Polk used its portion to resurface a portion of County Road 64,the only public road leading to the base. The road had been in poor repair,a problem Polk officials highlighted during a visit in August 2011 by then-Lt. Gov. Jennifer Carroll. Highlands County was granted funds to aid in securing buffer areas around the base. Highlands County officials also have reportedly applied for federal funds as well. The announcement drew praise from local political leaders. Thanks to this grant, Polk County can work closer with the Avon Park Air Force Range,State Sen. Denise Grimsley (RSebring),whose district includes the military base, said in a statement accompanying Scotts press release. You cannot overestimate the national strategic value of the Avon Park Bombing Range as it is one of only two large-caliber firing ranges in the eastern United States,added State Rep. Cary Pigman (R-Sebring), whose district includes the Highlands County portion of the facility. The successful partnership betwee n Enterprise Florida,the mil itary,and the local econom ic development council is a paragon of effective coope ration that supports the defense industry of Florida and the economic benefits that follow. The Florida defense grants programs are administered by Enterprise Florida,Inc. The grants are awarded annually to communities near military installations.

By FABIOLA SANCHEZ Associated PressCARACAS,Venezuela Tempers flared at airline offices in Caracas on Friday as Venezuelans reacted angrily to international carriersrefusal to sell tickets after the government devalued the bolivar for flights abroad. The offices of American Airlines,Delta,United and Panamas Copa were all either closed or had halted sales for several hours on Friday as the higher exchange rate took effect, adding to uncertainty as carriers try to collect $3.3 billion they say theyre owed by the socialist government. Dont waste your time, a United representative, sticking her head out from behind a closed glass door, told a group of 10 waiting customers standing outside a ticket office at Caracas Centro Lido shopping mall. Its out of our hands. We cant sell more tickets. When customers protested that they would never experience such poor service in the US,the agent, who didnt identify herself by name,said our situation is different than the USand then quickly closed the door shut. Megan McCarthy,a spokeswoman for United in Chicago,said the airline continues to sell tickets in Venezuela but acknowledged that they had been halted for a few hours as prices in its system were adjusted. United has a single daily flight between Houston and Caracas. When the exchange ra te was updated,we had to hold selling them,she said,adding that online sales had resumed and its ticket office in Centro Lido would reopen at regular hours on Saturday. We apologize to our customers who we did not explain this to. Airlines halt ticket sales in Venezuela


Special to the News-SunORLANDO For 22-yearo ld Universal Technical I nstitute graduate Clinton F aircloth,his daily job r esponsibility includes helpi ng wrench two massive 1 0,000-pound vehicles that h ave 1,500 horsepower and c ost more than a quarter mill ion dollars each. Meet G rave Diggerand M adusa the Monster J amtrucks that Faircloth s pends most of his time w orking on. The recent Orlando camp us grad secured an entryl evel technician position at F eld Motor Sportsworking w ith Monster Jam,the ultim ate entertainment event in s howmanship for Monster J am trucks. Since being h ired in early December last year,Faircloth has already traveled to Nashville, Memphis,San Diego and Anaheim. And hell definitely be hitting the road to see more of the world traveling for a total of at least four months during the year. To date, Monster Jam has been seen by more than 4 million fans in almost 40 international cities including Abu Dhabi,Paris,London and Sydney,Australia. For me,this is an absolute dream job, Faircloth said. I come from a small town,so this is a big opportunity. I grew up watching Grave Digger,and its surreal that Im now behind the scenes. Im so proud to be a part of this team and am learning so much. Monster Jam technicians can spend approximately 50 hours of work on each truck preparing for the next show. Depending on how the vehicle performs or if there are any problems,theres lots of hours involved,said Faircloth. When a bug needs to be worked out,we can be there until 2 a.m. and then have to get up at 8 a.m. to prepare for the show. But theres so much adrenalin and energy and reward in knowing youre working on a truck that a screaming crowd of 70,000 fans are waiting to see. Feld Motor Sports recruited Faircloth while making a visit to UTIs Orlando campus to discuss the growing need for technicians as they rapidly expand shows. Our Monster Jam Fleet is one of the largest and most sophisticated motor sports vehicle fleets in the world, said Ryan McSpadden,VPSales for Feld Entertainment,Having high quality technicians from UTI are a key component in our overall operation. Coincidentally,Faircloths hometown of Avon Park is about a half hour from Feld Motor Sportsnew state-ofthe-art service shop in Ellenton. The 700,000square-foot shop is the second-largest building in the state,with 144 garages,a fabrication department to build parts and a 72,000square-foot Monster Jam section. Its a technicians ultimate playground. We hire people like Clinton who have an excellent technical ability and also a passion and personality for what we do,said Susan Kozlowski,director of human resources,Feld Motor Sports. Being part of our team is not just a job; its an adventure and lifestyle so its important that we find the right type of people who can commit to making it a career. At 6 feet tall,Faircloth barely can see over one of the 6-foot-6 giant wheels on Grave Digger. Obviously,the differentials are about five to six times larger than regular vehicles,said Faircloth. So Ive been learning a lot about the planetary gears and how to maximize torque things that Ive learned at UTI,but on steroids. Faircloths advice to future UTI grads is to work hard,focus on professionalism and employment goals then set a roadmap for success. We are honored to have employers such as Feld Motor Sports come to campus,said Mike Coburn, employment services director at UTIs Orlando campus. Its an excellent oppo rtunity for our graduates to participate in a very rewarding program. Their ultimate reward is hearing those 50,000 plus fans cheering f or their favorite team. As for Faircloth,he says hes in this career for the long haul. Ever since I was little, Ive been wired to work on cars,he added. Now I do this for a living with hightech Monster Jam trucks. I couldnt be happier.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comFROSTPROOF The q uest for a district champio nship came to a halt Friday n ight, as the third time was t he charm for Mulberry in t opping Lake Placid in a s hootout for the District 102 Acrown. The Dragons had topped t he perennial district frontr unninng Panthers early in t he season by a 3-2 count, w ith Mulberry earning a tie i n their last meeting. The Panthers playoff e xperience was clear early in t he match, disrupting Lake P lacids possession style p lay. Offensive charges on both s ides, however, were turned a way consistently with topn otch goal tending on either e nd of the field, sending it to h alftime in a scoreless tie. Alfredo (Aguillon) did a f antastic job of denying seve ral Mulberry chances, D ragon head coach James A shley said. We got off to a s low start tonight and had to r egroup at halftime to get m omentum our way. The momentum did swing a s Lake Placid were in more c ontrol of the ball, keeping it o n the Panther side of the f ield and getting off some g ood scoring chances. And then the Dragons b roke through and got on the s coreboard. On an Osvaldo Orduna f ree kick, the ball found the c rossbar and deflected back t o an oncoming Jorge G odinez who powered it in a nd put Lake Placid up 1-0. I had a feeling we were g oing to finish at any m oment, Ashley said. Because of the way we kept M ulberry on their heels s tarting off the half. But that feeling, the lead and momentum was shortlived, as the Panthers got their own scoring chance and made the most of it. Ashot from just outside the penatly box dipped past a helpless Aguillon to even things up. From there, the intensity grew as both teams fought desperately for the titleclinching tie-breaker. But each team held the other off and they battled to the end of regulation still knotted up 1-1, sending it to penalty kicks to decide it. Orduna opened up the PKs with a high blast past the Mulberry keeper, but the next attempt was denied. One by one, the Panthers converted their kicks and the Dragons attempts to catch up would fall just short. Give credit to Mulberry tonight, Ashley said. They did what they needed to do to win and deserve their district crown. The district runner up status has Lake Placid still headed into the state playoffs, albeit on the road for their first match. And while they fell short of their main goal of the season, this team showed a remarkable turnaround from just a season ago. Were going to remind our players that we worked very hard to get here, Ashley said. Its hard to see it right now, but there are positives to take from this experience. We won two games last year, this year we have 14 wins, he continued. We got knocked out in the semis last year and this year we made the finals and took it to penalty kicks. We still have life left in this tournament run. We are going to reset our goals, focus on Berkeley Prep and see where we can take this.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Our goal this season was a district championship, and we accomplished that, Lady Dragon head coach John Merlo said Thursday night. Now we will look to take another step. The journey for this squad of Lake Placid ladies came to an end in the Regional Quaterfinals on a chilly night as the visiting Jaguars of Academy of the Holy Names held off some early Dragon charges and kick it into gear late for a 6-0 win. We were right there with them the first 15, 20 minutes, Merlo said. We had a couple of early chances that if wed been able to convert, really could have made this a different game. Those early forays toward the goal from sophomore Mary Grace Bates couldnt quite be converted, as Jaguar keeper Kendall Catone was able to cover just in the nick of time. Lake Placids own keeper, Tamija Douglas was doing a bang up job in the early minutes as well, making three strong saves in a five-minute span. The adrenaline early in the game really helped us, but after that wore off, it got tough, Merlo said. We have two girls battling the flu, and its hard to keep up the intensity when two of your stronger players just cant run full out. Those two, Stephanie Bennett and Hannah Waller did help keep the Dragons neck and neck with Holy Names, but with their illness, had to be spelled mor e than usual. Even then, it took until t he 12:27 mark of the first half for the Jaguars (15-2), to get onto the scoreboard when Julia Lester got control of a rebound and flipped it in. Alittle more than three minutes later, amid a goalbox scrum, Holy Names wa s again able to convert. But the Dragons held the m there and kept the deficit at 2-0 the same deficit they had come back from to top McKeel for the district Lady Dragons halted by Holy Names See LP, B4 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Osvaldo Orduna battles for control of the ball with Mulberrys Noe Guillen Friday night in the District 10-2A tournament title game. Dan Hoehne/News-Sun fil es Kailin Brown and the Lady Dragons pulled off the upset Friday night, toppling Sebring 44-36. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt was a scenario that was set up for just such an occurance as the Lady Dragons closed out their regular season with a surprising, 44-36 win over Sebring Friday night. One night earlier, the Lady Blue Streaks had cruised to an easy win over Frostproof on their Senior Night by a 55-15 score. Lake Placid, meanwhile, had been on the road and took a thumping from Lincoln Park Academy. We killed a team, they got killed by a team, said Sebring point guard Christacia Dawkins. They were ready to go and we were relaxed. Not too relaxed, though, as the cross-county rivalry always kicks things up a bit for both sides and did so again through a back-and-forth first quarter. Quiahja Williams had the hot hand for the Dragons, scoring six, with Raveen Gobourne adding three points, Jenny Herstein a three-pointer and Annie WeberCallahan chipping in a deuce. But Sebring got six of their own from Jazmin House, along with five from Dawkins and a bucket from Jamiese Wiley. Lake Placids mix of scoring, however, had them up 14-13. Things stayed tight through the second, with each team matching each others scores. Olivia Burnett scored twice for the Streaks, as did Kailin Brown for the Dragons. Herstein hit another triple while WeberCallahan and Lahna Sedatol added a bucket each. But those were answered by three House points and scores from Ilean a Powell and Wiley for an 11-11 tilt that had Lake Placid up 25-24 at the half. The Dragons then kicked up the defensive pressure in the third, sticking with the fullcourt press and tightening the screws. They are tough and relentless, Dawkins said. They didnt let up at all. Wiley would get a score in the paint and hit three of four free throws but that would be all the Sebring scoring in the third. Williams got hot again, scoring three times and Sedatol went 2-of-4 from the line and Lake Placid eked the lead to 33-29 heading into the final eight minutes. And while the Streaks made the push and created more scoring opportunities in the fourth, poor free-throw shooting proved their doom.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWith Anfernee Munnings, Nick T uason and Scotty Colley back in the f old, Lake Placids fortunes seem on t he rise, with a recent drubbing of M ulberry and a close-fought, fourp oint loss at DeSoto. And Friday night at Sebring, the D ragons matched the Streaks in the f irst quarter and outscored them by e ight in the fourth. But it was the two middle quarters t hat was the difference this night, as S ebring went on a 45-22 binge over t he second and third to pave the way t o a 73-58 win. Even at 12-12 after the opening s tanza, the Blue Streaks exploded for 2 9 points in the second. Keizhawn Hester connected on t wo three-pointers, with Quantrae Rouse and Connor Cooke each draining one as well, as eight players got into the scoring column. Sebring also was in attack mode and drawing fouls, shooting 12 free throws in the quarter, converting nine of them. The Dragons saw many trips to the line as well, earning 14 foul shots and making nine. But they would only cash in two field goals and the Blue Streak lead at halftime stood at 41-25. Cooke and Rolando Powery each scored four points for Sebring in the third, and Lake Placid struggled to score, with the 16-9 margin pushing the lead to 57-34. And while the Dragons heated up over the final eight minutes, with Streaks surge past Lake Placid See SEBRING, B4

It was a big win for us, Dragon head coach Jackie Coyne said. The girls played really well and it sends us to districts with some momentum. Lake Placid travels to Avon Park Tuesday to face the Lady Devils at 7:30 p.m. in the District 9-4Atournament. This closely contested loss could well provide a spark for the Streaks as they set to host DeSoto Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the opening round of their District 11-5Atournament. Continued from B1 Lady Dragons, Streaks head to Districts c hampionship a week earlier. Lake Placid kept that hope a live as they continued to r un with the Jaguars and k eep them off the board over t he first quarter of the seco nd half. But at 54:17, Audrey C ooper was in the right p lace to one-time in another r ebound to push the lead to 3 -0. And it was really only then that the tide seemed to turn as Holy Names would add three more scores to halt any further Dragon hopes for their season to continue. Its tough when you face these sorts of teams that basically play year-round, Merlo said. It took us a while to get going this season, with players filtering in from other sports, but once we got the pieces in place and everyone in soccer shape, we finished the season 11-1. It was a great season for us and this is a great group of girls to coach, he continued. Well be losing a couple key players, but weve got a lot of talent coming back and more coming up. This was a good step to take for them, to get to this point and see what they have to do to take that next step of a regional win. Continued from B1 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Senior Hannah Waller gets a good look at the ball as she attempts a header Thursday night. LP ousted, but see next step M unnings scoring eight, T uason five and Markyrie M cCray hitting a three as p art of their 24 points.

The Bloodhounds will h ost 12-3Arunner-up Eau G allie in the Class 3A r egional quarterfinals Jan. 3 0. It is Auburndales fourth c onsecutive district champio nship. That just means everyt hing to me, senior Matt A rnold said. We came out h ere and we played the game t hat we play. I mean, we p layed our game all four y ears and whooped our dist rict, basically. The Bloodhounds were d etermined to keep their s hutout. Sebring is the only 3A-11 t eam that has scored on A uburndale this year. We wanted to send a message that we can keep our opponents scoreless, Auburndale coach Guy Jennings said. Chase Hovious scored the first goal just two minutes into the game. At that point it made everybody relax, Jennings said. And when you relax, you play better. Robert Brambles goal came in the ninth minute of action. Three minutes later, Callahan Warren made a penalty kick. Kendy Pierre made it 4-0 with a goal at the three-minute mark of the first half. Were not selfish, Arnold said. This years team, we have chemistry. Everybody loves each other, and we might not have the talent that we had in the past, but we have a bond. And once you have a team like that, its really hard to break us. Jennings told his team at halftime to keep up the intensity to continue sending Sebring a message in the second half. The Bloodhounds did just that. Elijah Sample made a penalty kick just five minutes into the half, and Dalton Dowd extended Auburndales lead to 6-0 with a goal with 27 minutes left. Sean Horrigan padded the lead with a goal at the 8:42 mark. This isnt where we stop, senior Joel Schmeig said. Were going to go all the way. Thats our goal at Auburndale. We dont settle for district titles. The Streaks had reached the title match with a semifinal upset of No. 2 seed Lake Wales on Tuesday, and secured a spot in the state playoffs. With the loss, Sebring is sent on the road for the regional quarterfinals and travel to face Merritt Island on Thursday. Bloodhounds trample Blue Streaks for district title


By MESFIN FEKADU AP Music WriterLOS ANGELES For m ore than a year,Justin B ieber has had more tabloid h its than Billboard hits:The s ingers music career has t aken a backseat to his wild b oy antics,and a new arrest f or a DUI charge marks a n ew low for the Grammyn ominated pop star. Biebers arrest Thursday is a nother sign of the crazy l ifestyle that has taken over t he 19-year-olds image b ut a more serious one given t he gravity of his alleged o ffenses. Authorities say B ieber failed a field sobriety t est early Thursday and he is f acing driving under the i nfluence charges after drivi ng nearly twice the speed l imit on a Miami Beach s treet. Police said he also r esisted the arrest and s melled of alcohol. After he was charged, s ome key industry watchers w ere hesitant to talk about t he Canadian-born singers w oes and what it would m ean to his imploding c areer. But rapper Macklemore, 3 0,was sympathetic. He said i f he had become a mains tream musician when he w as Biebers age,people w ould also see his struggles. I think its challenging f or anybody to have your life b e a spectacle and to be c hallenged and critiqued and j udged. And its definitely h ard if youve never had any n ormalcy in your adult life o r in your teenage life,said M acklemore,who has strugg led with substance abuse. I t hink thats very challenging. I think if I had blown up at 2 2 or 23,I think you would h ave seen me do some (crazy s tuff) in public. The new year kicked-off i n dramatic fashion for B ieber:Detectives searched his California home looking for surveillance footage that might serve as evidence that the singer was involved in an egg-tossing vandalism case that caused thousands of dollars in damage to a neighbors home. The investigation garnered more attention than his album release, which happened just days earlier. Journalswas released in December and has had some success:some singles have hit then Top 40 thanks to digital sales. But its miles away from the phenomenal, chart-topping success he enjoyed when he debuted as a cherub-faced,soft-voiced teenager in 2009. Since his arrival onto the music scene, hes released multiple platinum albums five of which have debuted at No. 1 and has clocked hit single after hit single,from Baby to Boyfriend.His fulllength 2010 debut,My World 2.0,was nominated for two Grammy Awards, including best pop vocal album and best new artist, where his loss surprised many. Bieber hasnt had that kind of success for a while. His second 3-D film, Justin Biebers Believe, flopped when it debuted in December and grossed just $3.1 million during its first three days around the Christmas holiday. In comparison,his 2011 film, Justin Bieber:Never Say Never,grossed $12.4 million on its opening day and $29.5 million during its opening weekend. Bieber has also lost edge onstage during his recent tour. At a stop in New Jersey in August,he was sluggish onstage and appeared to lip sync throughout the night. He didnt dance as strongly as he has in the past,and he seemed to be uninterested at times onstage. Hes remained in the headlines though for all the wrong reasons. Last year represented a litany of lows, from clashing with a paparazzo to fainting at a show to being photographed smoking marijuana. Some of his troubles have reached the bizarre. By ULA ILNYTZKY Associated PressNEW YORK Babe R uths 1923 World Series c hampionship pocket watch, f or decades thought to be l ost to history,is coming to a N ew York City auction, w here its expected to fetch a t least $750,000. Ruth batted .368 and hit t hree homers in the 1923 W orld Series as the Yankees w on the championship by b eating the New York Giants i n six games. It was a pivotal y ear for the franchise,as it m oved into Yankee Stadium a nd won its first of 27 World S eries championships. The pentagonal gold timep iece is being sold at H eritage Auctions Feb. 22 s ale. It was the beginning of w hats become the most d ominant dynasty in A merican sports,said Chris I vy,director of sports auct ions at the Dallas-based a uction house. It changed t he culture and Babe Ruths t he ultimate leader of that t eam. At the time,winning playe rs got watches,which later w ere replaced by the stills tandard rings. No one knew where the p iece had been. No one has e ver seen it for public sale or p ublic auction,Ivy said. The fact that there was no n ews about it for so many d ecades,it was just thought t hat at some point it had b een lost to time. The 14-karat gold timepiece remained with Ruth until shortly before his death from cancer in 1948. He asked his close friend, Charles Schwefel,what he would like from his collection. The Manhattan hotelier, who shared Ruths passion for helping disadvantaged youth,asked for the watch. Schwefel kept it for two years until his wife gave it to Lewis Fern,her nephew and Ruths frequent golf caddy. It remained with Fern for decades until it was sold privately in 1988 to the current owner,a major East Coast sports collector who kept it in a safe deposit box. A lot of items from that era were lost or discarded, so the fact that the watch reappeared ... obviously is of historical significance,said Steve Costello,executive vice president of Steiner Sports collectibles in New Rochelle,N.Y. The present owner,who wished to remain anonymous,declined to be interviewed. He said through Heritage that he acquired the watch for around $200,000 and was parting with it now to help fund charitable organizations important to him. Ivy said bidding for the watch could easily reach seven figures,being that its the first championship hardware that Ruth won. What makes the watch even more special is that Ruth had his name engraved on it and added a special inscription,To My Pal Charles Schwefel. The engravings really add to the provenance,said Costello. There arent that many things of that nature being done any more. ... How many people in todays society have a pocket watch? The Gruen Verithin watch also is engraved with a pitcher,hitter,catcher,a ball in flight and the words Yankeesand World Champions 1923. Babe Ruths championship ring from the 1927 World Series,the Murderers Row team that swept Pittsburgh,sold at auction for $250,000 in the 1990s. In todays market,theres no question it would be a seven-figure piece,Costello said. Whenever you get something thats one-of-a-kind item from Babe Ruth,the skys the limit,he said. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, January 26, 2014 Page B5 DUMMY 2014; 5.542"; 7.1"; Black; church page dummy; 00034905 CITY OF AVON PARK; 3.639"; 5"; Black; garbage pick-up change; 00035212 Arts & Leisure George Bush Presidential Library/MCT Baseball legend Babe Ruth presents his papers to Yale University in 1948.

Babe Ruths 1923 Series watch coming to NY auction By RYAN NAKASHIMA AP Business WriterLOS ANGELES Over the past few Olympics, NBC has shown more live coverage over the Internet than it has on TV. For the upcoming Winter Games, Comcasts Xfinity TV subscribers will be able to tap the breadth of that online coverage on their big screens. For the first time,subscribers who use Comcast Corp.s latest-generation X1 video set-top box will be able to access content that had once been digital only. That includes use of the NBC Sports Live Extra app on big-screen TVs. This year,the app will include a buffed-up version of a live program called Gold Zone.It will cut in and out of medal events and recap highlights. This time, it will also have hosts and a studio,similar to footballs NFL RedZone channel. Live streaming of events and other coverage from Sochi,Russia,will also be available on the TV through the X1 box. All told,NBC is streaming more than 1,000 hours of live event coverage online. For the first time, that will include popular events such as figure skating. At the Winter Olympics in Vancouver four years ago,live coverage online was limited to curling and ice hockey, plus some training runs, and only 430 hours of online coverage was live. Subscribers of other pay TV companies will be able to catch the Gold Zone and other online coverage only on computers,tablets and mobile phones at least without connecting cables to the TV. Verification through the X1 is automatic,as it will be for some subscribers of other services that can recognize if youre on your home Wi-Fi network. The change is one further step in the TV industrys evolution to become a platform delivered via the Internet. Because the X1 box can handle the HTML 5 Internet programming language,it was easy to repurpose the app,the company said. Its also an example of the benefits Comcast Corp. can reap by owning NBCUniversal,which it purchased in 2011. Gold Zonewill be hosted by Andrew Siciliano,the host of DirecTVs NFL Sunday Ticket Red Zone,and Ryan Burr,an NBC Sports and Golf Channel journalist. The show will stream as live events play out in Russia from about 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern time in the U.S. When the online show ends,NBC will typically have two hours of afternoon coverage starting at 3 p.m. EST and three hours in prime time starting at 8 p.m. EST. Broadcasts will be delayed outside the Eastern and Central time zones. Other affiliated pay TV networks USA, MSNBC,CNBC and NBC Sports Network will carry other events as well When X1 users turn on the TV,they will be notified of what Olympic events are coming up and on which channels if they tap the infobutton on their remote controls. In a handful of test markets including Boston, Philadelphia and parts of New York state X1 users will also be able to watch competition from t he beginning if they show up a bit late,a feature the company is calling Insta nt Video on Demand.Fastforwarding of ads will be disabled,however. Comcast doesnt say how many of its customers use X1. Its available to a ll new customers who subscribe to at least three services video,voice and data. Existing customers can ask for X1 and may be required to pay for an upgrade. NBC plans to make money on the Olympics, thanks in part to heavy use of its multiple TV and online networks.

The River of Grassexhibit is on d isplay for the public now through April 25. T he upper-level gallery is designated as a c ommunity artist gallery and showcases e xceptional artists from our surrounding a rea. Rose is a self-taught artist who is influe nced by the photography style of her late h usband. She has been involved with photogr aphy her entire life,but has been a profess ional for 10 years. My passion for photography runs deep as I feel compelled to continue to capture u nique nature and landscape photos,Rose s aid. I have to see the photo with my eyes a nd when my heart is moved,I focus to capt ure the moment I am experiencing. E motions are stirred,and you become a bsorbed in each photograph by the most i ntricate of details and lighting. This is what e nhances my enthusiasm for photography i t can be seen and felt. The term River of Grasswas populari zed by Marjory Stoneman Douglas and d escribes part of a complex,interdependent e co-system which includes cypress swamps, m angrove forests,tropical hardwood hamm ocks,pine rock land as well as the wildlife a nd marine environment. Growing up in Montana,Rose always l oved nature and enjoyed taking pictures. Living in Florida,with its abundance of b irds,wildlife,and water habitats,spurred m y late husband,Rick Rose,and I to get s erious and begin pouring ourselves into our p hotography,Rose said. The excitement of c apturing wildlife in the variety of settings p rovided by Floridas landscape has greatly i mpacted how I shoot unique photographs. Roses art reflects her passion for this ecos ystem in nature and the world that surr ounds her. Rose shoots with her heart to c apture and help preserve this fragile ecos ystem,bringing the most intricate of details u p close and personal. This exhibition i ncludes photographs taken by Rick Rose, s haring his intense passion for the subjects he photographed in his final artistic endeavors. Roses collection includes photographs from her travels to Italy,Montana,Oregon, Florida,and the northeastern United States. When asked what she liked to focus on during photography,Rose replied,Lighting is one of the most important aspects of photography,and I focus on capturing unique shots with timely lighting effects,she said. My style is nature and landscape photography using a variety of angles. Roses photography is displayed through the Highlands Art League Yellow House Gallery and the Lake Wales Ridge Project Traveling Exhibit,which is on display at the Louise and Arnold Kotler Art Gallery in Tampa. The SFSC Museum of Florida At and Culture (MOFAC) is open to the public from 12:30-4:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday, and by appointment for group tours.

My h earts conviction f rom this biblical p rinciple gave me g reat joy even t hough a tithe f rom my small i ncome wasnt much. Every two weeks,I w rote that check and c heerfully placed it in the o ffering plate. The Bible s ays in 2 Corinthians 9:7, So let each one give as he p urposes in his heart,not g rudgingly or of necessity; f or God loves a cheerful g iver. The verse before this a dmonishes that when we s ow sparingly we will reap s paringly.And the verse t hat follows assures us that G od is the one who will m ake grace abound toward t he giver so that there will b e sufficiency and an a bundance for every good w ork. God doesnt need the o ffering money.Rather, t hrough our giving with a r ight motive and our devot ion to him,he supplies the n eeds of others and blesses u s in return. Giving does require f aith. I remember how my t ight budgets pressed in w ith the thought that I c ouldnt possibly tithe. The n umbers wouldnt work. B ut,thats where faiths s tewardship in Gods econo my became practical. By faith we believe what t he Bible teaches and we a pply it as best we can with cheerful hearts and trust that God is the owner of everything. We are to be his managers. It is wrong to have a poverty theology. This teaches an imbalanced view and a disdain for possessions or money. When the rich person came to Jesus asking what he still needed to do,Jesus told him to sell everything. This was not his plan for everyone. He was seeing into the heart of this inquirer that riches had become his god. On the other hand,prosperity theology assumes prosperity is a reward for righteousness. The love of money can lure people away from God.Jesus warned a rich man that his I,Me and,Minementality would get him nowhere for his soul would be required of him that night. Proper theology views ones possessions as a trust from God (no matter how small or large) that is carefully managed. A glance into Proverbs 31 sees a woman who is a saver, wise in her purchases,a worker,and a giver to the poor. She cares for her household and enjoys the fruit of her labors. Money is a wonderful servant,but a lousy master. So whatever the Lord has blessed us with,lets honor him with faiths stewardship. Selah Faiths stewardship Pause And Consider Jan Merop Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent. Dear Abby: When parents who live many miles away from their adult children visit their homes,to what extent should they be treated as guests? When we visit our son,our daughter-in-law gets herself a snack and then sits down to eat it and watch TV,and there we sit. She never offers us a thing. Are we expecting too much or doesnt she have any manners? Also,when we have a meal in their home,they get their own beverages and never mention anything about what is available to us. Were not used to this kind of treatment. Have you any thoughts on how to handle this without causing any rift? Disrespected in Michigan Dear Disrespected: Assume that your daughterin-law behaves this way because she doesnt know any better. As for your son, because he wasnt raised this way,he is either thoughtless, rude or following his wifes lead. Because youre all family, things should be informal. The way to handle it is to speak up and tell your hosts that youre hungry and/or thirsty,too. If its said with a smile,it shouldnt cause a rift. Dear Abby: Billand I have gone together for three years. Hes a wonderful, sweet man who has never raised his voice to me. We have talked about taking our relationship to the next level. Im hesitant because I suspect hes a high-functioning alcoholic. Bill doesnt seem to crave a drink when he's with me, but he does crave being in bars in the company of men who sit for hours over drinks and then get out on the Interstate. I dont want to be his mother or his hall monitor,but I have begun to suspect I shadow his denial. Im afraid I have become his enabler. We are in our early retirement years and the thought that his drinking will get worse has made me afraid. I love Bill. I cant seem to move forward,yet I resist walking away. We have discussed my feelings many times,and he says he has cut down the amount he drinks and theres nothin g to worry about. Yet,I have this sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Sick Feeling in Texas Dear Sick Feeling: Listen to your intuition. I dont know how often Bill cravesthe company of men who sit for hours in bars becoming increasingly inebriated,but if it is more than occasionally,then I agree you may have cause for concern. Because of the language in your letter,it appears you are already familiar with alcoholism and how it affects relationships. It would be a good idea for you to attend some Al-Anon meetings before your relationship with Bill goes further because he may be in denial about the importance of alcohol in his life. The meetings are easy to find; Al-Anon is listed in your phone directory and can be found at Dear Abby: More and more I receive emails from people using the closing salutation Best.I feel this must be incorrect. Shouldnt it be Best Regardsor Best Wishes? To say simply Bestseems somehow lacking. Best what? What is accurate? Tandi in New Haven Dear Tandi: Closing a communication using Bes t is a shorthand version of saying Best Wishesor Best Regards.Its accept able in less-than-formal communications,and is sometimes used when someone feels that ending their email without it would seem too cold and abrupt.
