The thought of standing before a group and speaking has given many a br av e individual cause to retreat. The Highlands County 4-H Program, in conjunction with Tropicana, provided local y outh a chance to dem onstr ate their public speaking pr ociency at the Annual 4-H Tropicana Public Speaking C ontest on M ay 20. Fallon Curren, a summer intern for Highlands County Extension Services and for mer T ropicana Speech Contestant, opened the competition with remarks and pr aise for the y oung or ators. She noted that all par ticipants had o ver come that pervasive fear and dev eloped a lifelong useful skill. The winner in the elementary division was Laur en S waine from Cracker Trail Elementary School, who delivered a speech entitled The Science of Laughter . The middle school winner N oah Roth, representing Hill-Gus tat, delivered a speech titled HmmWhat Should I Write My Speech About? Following Swaine in the elementary school division were Megan Cooper from Lake Plac id Elementary in second, Abigail Peneld fr om P ark Elementary in third and honorable mention went to Hope Flores from Lakeview Christian School. Following Noah Roth in the middle school division were Claire Phypers from Lake Placid Middle School, Keelan Bevis from Lake Placid Chris tian School, and Shelby Stoner from Sebring M iddle School. F ull scholarships to this summers 4-H Open Enrollment Camps are provided by Tropicana. They are awarded to rst place elementary and middle school division win ners. E veryone can relate to that jittery moment when you rst step in front of a crowd. For many young people, this contest is their rst experience giving a speech, said Dr. Brian Myers, interim assis tant dean for 4-H youth dev elopment pr ograms at the University of Floridas IFAS. Whether or not they win, writing and delivering a speech helps y outh lear n valuable life skills that will benet them later in life, he said. This Y ear Highlands County Public & Private Schools had one four th gr ade class, 47 fth-grade classes and 42 sixth-grade classes participating in the pr ogr am, totaling more than 1,700 students. Over 124,000 young people in fourth thru sixth grades attending 800 different schools statewide participated in the contest last year.

The issue rst was brought forward by Rick Haberman, who raises miniature pot bellied pigs and pigmy goats on his 10-acre r anch near the A von Park Bombing Range. Tuesday, local sh farmer Robbie Bullock came before the board to ask them again to look at the county or dinance which limits the numbers of pigs goats, chicken or sheep on agriculturally zoned property but does not impact other kinds of livestock, like cattle. Bullock also point ed to the Florida Right to F ar m Act, which was written to protect the agriculture industry in the Sunshine State. Among other things, it offers protection both from nuisance lawsuits as well as from local zoning ordinances. Because some agri cultural operations effectively have been z oned out by strict regulations, rules or policies, the states Right to Farm Act prohibits any local government from adopting any or dinance, regulation, rule or policy that would pr ohibit, r estrict, regulate or otherwise limit an activity an activity of a bona de far m oper ation. I can tell you were very interested in that and we are looking into it, said Highlands County Commission Chairman Greg Harris. I agree, we all agree. I think its time. Harris has provided County Administrator June Fisher with doc umentation on such animals in other municipal codes including Brooksville, Pinellas Park, St. Petersburg, Lee C ounty Safety Har bor and Pasco County. A ppar ently, that work was done by attor ney Allison Copley before the City of Sebring dr afted an or dinance to allow a certain number of potbellied pigs as domesticated animals and chickens within the city limits. Haberman, who also was at Tuesdays meet ing, said he already had collected mor e than 100 signatures on a petition. H e also thanked the commission for continuing to research the issue There are a lot of people that are affected by this, he said.Commission to look into animal ordinanceH.U.P.

The program helps identify academically gifted students and provides them with opportunities to support their development. Many other students were recognized during the end of the year awards banquet. The event was a formal affair with an Academy Awards theme and also included inductions for the National Honor Societies. BY CAROLE KLINENews-Sun correspondentSEBRING People honor and remember those who served this countr y o ver the years in a wide variety of ways: parades, mar ching bands speeches, ags and banners waving. With Memorial Day approaching, one such V eter an is remembered along with a r ather unique answ er to a prayer. Kaye Lee Miller is remembered for many things, including his service to his countr y along with the life he built for the family ar ound him. He will also be remembered for the uniqueness of his name: Kaye. He was named af ter a famous race boat dr iv er, said Thelma Miller, his wife of nearly 59 years. Kayes mother and father were real boat racing enthusi asts, she explained. W e met one other man named Kaye dur ing our y ears together. The man told my husband he wouldn t have any problem remembering his name! A V eteran of the U.S. Navy, Petty Ofcer Miller served rst on the U.S.S. M idway and then on the U.S.S. I ntrepid. While the Midway was stationed in Norfolk, Virginia in 1952, he went back to his hometown of Roseville, M ichigan to marr y Thelma, his high school sw eethear t. Kaye was very proud of his service to the Navy, said Thelma. He wore hats with logos of both the ships. Peo ple would stop him and ask about his service; where and when he had ser v ed. When Kaye was rst on the Midway, the ship was in Korean waters, but his tours of duty also took him to G r eece, Italy, Monaco, Gibraltar and Canada. After ser ving pr oudly from 1952 to 1956, Kaye received his discharge w ent back home to M ichigan. He was hired by Michigan Bell Telephone Company as a lineman, but was a switching systems technician when he r etir ed. Like many snowbirds who come to F lor ida, the Millers found their favorite wintertime spot here in Sebring in Leisure Acres Park. The couple made many fr iends and enjo yed retirement living. By 2011, however, Kaye had endured 35 r ounds of r adiation as well as numerous surgeries to ght cancer H e rallied enough to go home after r ecuperating at The Palms of S ebr ing. Miller had so charmed the aids and nurses during his rst stay, they insisted he come to the same hall when his illness worsened and he re turned. H e was so determined to get better again, Thelma Miller said, and everyone took such great car e of him ther e. But he could only stand eight infusions of chemo that time. It was just too much. When it was near the end, Thelma Miller said she put her head on his pillo w next to his face and asked, If things are the way we always thought they would be, will you give me a sign; maybe with a hummingbird? Thelma Miller was looking for that nal assurance that her husband would be okay. B ut she never told anyone about that v er y private moment nor what she asked K ay e just before he slipped away. Their shar ed lo ve of hummingbirds played a very specic part when the chapter of Kaye Millers life was closed, and their lo v e of a Lord they served cheerfully helped as well. F or on the day of the gr aveside service where his ashes were to be placed, Thelma Millers son suddenly drew her attention to something v er y strange and beautiful. As the funeral director nished the last pr ay er, her son leaned over and said, Look, Mom. Theres a hummingbird sitting on Dads ashes! Thelma looked up and was suddenly lled with the peace that passes all understanding, and she knew that K ay e was indeed okay. The couple who had been sweethearts in high school would one day be together again. Her tears still come easily and she misses him today. But, seeing the hummingbird that day gave the nal an swer to the question Thelma asked that night when no one hear d but her husband and G od.A remembrance and a hummingbird Courtesy photoA hummingbird helped Thelma Miller nd peace that passes all understanding after the death of her husband Kaye.Bird served as a sign for widow as she mourned loss of Navy veteran husband in 2011 BY KIRSTEN SCARBOROUGHNews Sun InternSEBRING What could be better than a gas station that is open 24/7?

Five years before President Franklin Roosevelts death, on May 24, 1940, P r esident Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his wife E leanor, welcomed women from the W omen s Division of the Democratic National Committee. The women were visiting Washington, D.C. in order to par ticipate in the DNC convention. E leanor R oosevelt and Franklin planned on touring 100 guests from this group at the White House. The President also planned on meeting them in the Executive Ofce to chat. The Roosevelts were delighted when over 4,000 of these women signed up to chat with the President. The Roo sevelts had to arrange to meet with the women in another location in or der to accommodate the large numbers. Be cause of the political engagement the women exhibited, E leanor R oosevelt successfully advocated for May 24 be established as Democratic W omen s Day. This year, the Florida Democratic Womens Club declar ed the entir e month of May as Democratic Womens Month.

Please be careful that you, your children and your pets do not harm nor interfere with them. The mother is nearby and will take care of her babies. Should you see a baby bird out of the nest, you can put it back into the nest if you can locate it. If not, and you know of the area that it came from, you can make a temporary one. Howev er, this does not work for the hawks o wls, eagles and other birds of prey. They require special handling and care. Mammals should be left alone for they can be very dangerous to han dle, even baby raccoons, opossum, fo xes bobcats and deer. Bats, foxes and raccoons can also have rabies. Should they bite you, then the animal has to be destroyed and test ed. Let s not forget reptiles, like the snakes (poisonous and nonpoisonous), gators tor toise and tur tles as well.

The News Service of Florida said the back-to-school holiday takes place from Aug. 1-3 mark your calen dars and will allow Floridians to buy clothes, school supplies and personal computers without paying sales taxes. The back-to-school holiday expands a discount introduced last year on computers and r aises the taxfree bar from $75 to $100 on the pric es of clothing, bags and backpacks, the News S ervices Jim Turner report ed last week. Last year, sales taxes wer ent collected on personal com puters and related gear worth under $750. This y ear, no sales taxes will be collected on the rst $750 of any com puter and related gear, regardless of the ov erall cost of the piece of elec tronics. Some estimates put the statewide savings at nearly $37 million for tax payers. Families struggling to arm their children with the r ight sup plies to succeed should welcome the chance to save a few dollars The back-to-school sales-tax hol iday is the latest in a series of moves lawmakers crafted and the go vernor supports. Last month, the governor signed into law a move that rolls back vehicle fees that will save motorists $20 to $25 per vehicle. Our own state Rep. Mike Hill made that a goal during his campaign last year and deserves praise for working to get it passed. The vehicle fee reduction is expected to collectively save motorists about $309 million during the upcom ing 2014-15 budget y ear, with the new low ered rates going into effect Sept. 1, the News Service reported. Those savings are expected to grow to about $395 million a year, once they are in effect for the full 12 months of a scal year. When its affordable, we appreciate any effort that puts money in taxpay ers pockets.An editorial from the Pensacola News-Journal. A needed break for taxpayersImagine that you are a young girl, between the ages of 15 and 18, attending a boarding school, and ar e suddenly and vi olently taken away fr om ever ything you once knew As a y oung girl myself who lives away from her family while pur suing further education, I could nev er imagine the feeling of fr ight the girls of the Nigerian boarding school felt as they were being taken away for their home, which was inv aded b y terrorists. Over 200 teenage girls were ab ducted from their dormitory by ar med terr orists on April 15 in a small northern Nigerian town. The reason behind his extreme event? The education of these teen girls. The kidnappers are the extrem ist Muslim group Boko Haram, the name of their gr oup tr anslating into Western education is sin. Though it has only been a couple of y ears since I was in that exact age range, it is hard to comprehend the thoughts these girls must be having, as w ell as the thoughts behind this terrorist group, and the families they are affecting. Just think about it: These girls, who are wanting to better them selves and have a promising future through the aid of education, ar e basically being punished for wanting to be successful. How could a group be so cruel to such young and innocent girls who just want an education? I believe this group is doing this because they are cowards. These terrorists knew that those girls who they violently took away from an education would have turned out to be more successful than them, and could not stand the thought of it. This extremist Muslim group has been known to kill or auc tion off their prisoners to become wiv es of militants, for as low as the equivalent of $12. I believe they are doing the above to make the girls feel lesser and to try and tell them that they ar e not as impor tant or going to be as successful as they had dr eamed. Although I am not a mother and cannot express what the par ents of those abducted young girls ar e feeling, I can offer a per spectiv e from the girls points of views T o be taken from a place of comfort and security, a safe hav en, and be violently placed into a terr or ists facilities has to be completely terrifying and indescribable. N ot kno wing what will happen next. Feeling lost and confused. Scared of the unknown, having your mind racing, constantly assuming, and trying to imagine the next and worst possible scenario because of what has already happened. Ther e may also ev en be a sense of betrayal. These girls were sent to this boarding school, by choice and by their parents, with hope of a better future and a home during the process, and then were ab ducted because of it. Though r epor ts suggest that the Nigerian military have not made any major efforts or shown a large concern in the rescuing of these kidnapped girls, at least one known outside effort has been made and is continuing to gain attention. Along with protests, a formal petition was created and ad dressed to the Obama Administration, asking the international community to take action thr ough the aid of their av ailable resources and bring these captured girls home safely.

She was born on April 4, 1960, in Columbus, Indiana to John and Manuella (Coy) Brewer. Tammy had been a resident of Sebring since 1994, coming from Ft. Lau derdale, Florida. She was a past member of the International Order of the Rainbow Gir ls. She is survived b y her parents: John and Manuella Bre w er of Sebring, FL; son: Brian Radonski (Nicole) of Sebring, FL; sister : T erri Futch of Stuart, FL; brothers: Robert Brewer of Jacksonville, FL, Jess Bre wer of Miami, FL; two granddaughters: Ashlyn and Logan. There will be a memorial service on Saturday, May 24, 2014, 1:00pm, at Bible Fellowship Church with Todd Patterson ofciating. Memorial contributions may be made in Tammys memory to: Moftt Can cer Center, 12902 Magnolia Dr., Tampa, FL 33612 www .moftt.org or Good Shepherd Hos pice, 1110 Hammock Rd., Sebring FL 33870 www. chapterhealth.org Arrangements entrust ed to: Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home of Sebring (863) 385-0125 stephensonnelsonfh.com OBITUARIES Sebring Mayor John Shoop made the announcement this past T uesday that the municipal ISO r ating is set to dr op fr om a 5 to a 3. The rating comes from the Insurance Services Ofce. That group pro vides statistical infor mation on risk. The r ating lev els go from 10 to 1, with one being the best. At one time, almost all insur ance companies calculated their rates based upon the ISO r ating. The number, known as a Public Protection Classication, is based on such things as reghter training, equipment, water supply and ho w r esponses to alarms are handled by the local department. Under the system, a 1 represents superior property re protection, while conversely, a 10 would indicate that the ar ea s re-sup pression program failed to meet ev en ISO s min imum criteria. Representatives of the group came to S ebr ing earlier this year to do another assessment. The last audit was performed here in 1995. Since that time, there have been a num ber of marked improvements, including the addition of new r e trucks. This really was a team effort of the citys re department, utilities department, the city administr ation and the Highlands County Sheriffs ofce, said S ebr ing Fire Chief Brad Batz. The citys utilities department, for instance, provided data on such things as o w testing storage and pump capacities. Batz also cited Highlands County Sheriffs Ofce C apt. J.P Fane for his help in the area of call dispatch. He helped us immensely with that portion, Batz said. We have gone to central dispatch and a portion of our score is based on that, so it was a really important part of the process. In the past, the ISO audits were done upon request although there were some ran dom inspections. They since hav e gone to a mandatory ve-year cycle. Batz said Sebrings inspections came a bit mor e quickly as the inspections al ready were being done in the ar ea. H e also noted that to jump two classication lev els in the system was a great accomplishment. In fact, I am going to ask them to come back because there were some things we didnt have in place when they were here that now would improve our score, he said. I want to keep our score up to date as much as possible. He called the ISO rat ings a benchmark or a template that can serve as a baseline to help the department constantly improve. Our main priority is that we want to be the best and do everything we can for the citizens. We are always striving and looking at what we can do to do better. FIRE F romROM pagPAG E A1 BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterSEBRING When Kristin Handley start ed organizing the 2014 D ay of C aring, she wanted to reach out beyond just local United Way partner organizations and make the biggest impact possible. S he may hav e succeeded, with 30 projects on this years to-help list and 325 volunteers, more than the usual 275-300 people, said Handley, Highlands County Area Director for the U nited Way of Central Florida. We support 17 not-for-prots, but we wanted to make it the biggest impact in one day that we can, Handley said. Staff from the City of Sebring from Utili ties to the Police Department helped repaint interior walls at H abitat for H umanitys ReStore. Priscilla Pin tor of the Sebring Utilities Department said she put in sw eat equity for her Habitat home many years ago, and this is a way to give back. Pat Storti, with Lykes Bros., said President Charlie Lykes wants them to do as much volunteer work as they can in Highlands County and other local communities to give back to others. Thats why Lykes Bros. had 24 people spread around repair ing Nu-Hope clients homes and r epair ing fences at Heartland Horses & Handicapped where the horses just wandered through to other pens. They also helped clean saddles and wash the horses them selves, Storti said. W e were one big family today, said Carmen Rivera, leader of the 36-member F lor ida Hospital team at Highlands Little Theatre. The group cleaned the outside and inside of the building, then set about to help sort props and costumes. They are the best thing to ever happen to HLT, said HLT Ex ecutive Director Vanessa Logsdon. They w ent abo ve and beyond. The sentiment was r epeated by people at the YMCA, where Highlands County Sheriffs Ofce staff came to paint the pool deck, and H ighlands Art League, where South Florida State College staff came to paint and clean. Jeri Wohl, Art League treasurer, said the work on the Visu al Arts Center the league s new classroom building has r eally helped the gr oup grow by providing a steady income from art events and lessons. This years sponsors included Budget Insurance, Florida Hospital Heartland M edical C enter, Lykes Bros. Inc., Duke Energy, The Andersons, H o ward Fertilizer and The Palms of Sebring, which provided lunch for the helpers.

In making her case K elly cited a July, 2007 meeting discussing a development and concerns expr essed about tr afc in the area. We already went through this when they tried to get the golf course re-zoned for multiple family dwell ings, she said. D ev elopers want to construct a 20-room, 18,000-square-foot facility that would deal with such things as teen eating disor ders and drug addiction. Kelly also balked at a letter reportedly sent by Highlands County Zoning Supervisor Lin da Conrad to local developer Dale Polston identifying S ebr ing Shores as a high-density residential area. I t is not high density residential neighbor hood, she countered. W e request the board reverse the zoning supervisors interpretation. K elly also said that residents disagreed with Conrads opinion that the R3-zoned pr oper ty could be used for a health care facility for drug addiction, rehabilitation and/or the tr eatment of mental health disorders. There has been no consideration of the interest of property owners affected by the use of this pr oper ty in the neighborhood, she said. The rst time anybody knew about this is when it came out in the newspaper. County Attorney Ross MacBeth told Kelly that the proper place to take their arguments would be the Highlands County Board of Ad justment. Should they not get the answ er they like, the next step then would be to the courts. Commission Chair man Greg Harris told K elly that under cur r ent zoning statutes, the use is per mitted. But it seems to me there ought to be a meeting with the people that live out there, he said. I n any ev ent, Harris indicated that it might be time for commissioners to take a look at the uses no w appr oved under the R-3 zoning classication, although such a reconsideration would not affect the development current ly set for the proper ty now occupied by the Lakeside C asino B uilding and Tea Room, which is scheduled for demolition. Is our R-3 zoning overly broad? Harris asked. Commissioner Don Elwell listed the possible uses r anging from dentistry ofce, to nursery school, child care centers and hotel or motel use. There ar e some wide r anges here, he said. Macbeth pointed out that once a developer purchases property for a certain use, it could not be down-zoned without consequences. You cant change the rules once theyve got ten started, he said. The B ert Harris Act would cause the governmental entity to hav e to compensate the property owner for losses associated with that change. The next Highlands County Zoning Board of Adjustment would be June 10. However, county ofcials said ther e was nothing set on the agenda for that date so far. REH aA B FROM PAGE A A 1housing development on 9.9 acres there. Among other things, council wanted assur ances that the development would not be lo w-income or subsidiz ed housing, that the pr oposed 600-squar efoot studio apartments would comprise less than 10 percent of the total construction, that the proposed three-sto ry buildings would not hav e a barracks-style appearance and that buffering around the development would be sufcient, especially on the side that borders the Francis 2 Mobile Home Park. Theres still some question as to what that means, said Sebring Zoning & Planning Di rector Jim Polatty. We hav e had suggestions on the types of fencing as well as vegetative buffers When it came to the buildings themselves, property owner Mark Gose told the council that each of the com plexes would look the same on the outside but that the interior lay out could be different. W e will construct one-, twoand threeunit apartments as the market dictates, he said. In the absence of Council President John Grifn and President Pro Tempore Scott Stanley, May or John Shoop chaired the meeting. That is the rst time in recent memory a Sebring may or has taken on that duty. Although he nally voted in favor of the action, new councilman Lenar d C arlisle initially pushed fellow board members to wait until G rifn and Stanley returned so that the full council could v ote on the measure. Cant we work this out tonight? asked Lake Jackson Holdings and Lake Jackson Man agement representative Rick Whidden. S ome of the site plan already had been revised due to concerns b y the city s planning and zoning board. That included increasing the number of parking spaces from 243 or one per unit to a pr oposed 298 spaces. However, the request presented to council Tuesday night had some other changes, including shrinking a number of setbacks and r educing the perimeter from 100 feet to the city s minimum of 30 feet. Gose also indicated there might be additional setback on the side of the dev elopment facing F rancis 2, but that the space could end up as par king. R esidents of the mobile home par k voiced objections to the pr oposed complex back in M ar ch, complaining that they would not be here this summer when the council voted. The issue is not over yet. Once language changes in the devel opment agreement hav e been memor ialized, council members look at a r e zoning that would double the allowed density from 12 units per acr e to 24.5 units per acre. In our code, R-3 only allows up to 20 units per acre, Polatty explained. Should those things be appr o ved, the council then would authorize an amendment to the city s compr ehensive land use management plan to be sent to the F lor ida Department of Community Affairs for their review. They could see the measur e again in June. The council took the action over a rec ommendation of denial by the citys planning and z oning boar d.

H ilda H ernandez said her store in Sebring got mentioned as par t a gr ound beef recall notice on CNN. Theres only one problem: They dont carry gr ound beef. My customers called and said, Hey, did you know youre on TV? I thought, Why the heck is my name in there? Her nandez said. Ther e ar e a lot of stores that go by Surf N Turf, but the CNN story at http://www.cnn. com/2014/05/21/ health/beef-recall/ specically said Se bring, Florida. H er nandez received a letter from her supplier Chaney Brothers food distributor in Ocala, to conr m that they dont have any tainted beef. S ur f N Turf in Sebring doesnt even sell it, H er nandez said. She and her husband, Ray, sell ground buffalo burgers: 10 pounds per w eek. H ernandez said Chaney Brothers did send a shipment of ground beef on April 18, but it wasnt what she ordered, so she sent it right back, along with a set of lids that were the incor rect size. Jon W an, invento ry control manager at Chaney B r others, sent Hernandez copies of the recall notice and media statements in an email on Thursday afternoon, along with a copy of her invoice from April 18 and con rmation that she returned it on April 20.

Every day its something different, said F ir e Chief Bradley Batz, who oversaw the oper ation from the dock of VFW P ost 4300. The call rst came in at 5:08 / p .m. Jack Tur beville, lifetime VFW member said he and a friend were looking on the water when the friend said it looked like a sailboat had capsized. A quick check with binoculars conrmed this, and they called it in. I saw his head bobbing up and do wn, T urbeville said. I dont know how long he was in the water before we looked out there. It turned out not to be long. Landon later said his boat with a 30 foot mast turned over at approximately 5 / p .m. I just got it this month, Landon later said. A seaplane saw the overturned boat and dropped down on the lake to check the situ ation. The pilot taxied o v er to the VFW Post dock and told Batz that the sailor was ne, but just wanted to stay with his boat until another boat could reach him. B atz said the S ebring Fire Department has a boat available to it, but it was still being ser viced in preparation for the M emor ial Day weekend. Fireghter Darren Lamb was able to contact Landons wife, who was walking the couples dog along the shor e 100150 yar ds to the north. He also contacted a neighbor, Cheryl Matthews, who was able to supply another neighbors SeaDoo to rescue Landon. O nce he got on shore, he didnt know how to tell reghters how to unhook the sail, which was under water and would prevent them from righting the boat. F or tunately, Emer gency Medical Technician Melissa Kowalski said she had learned fr om her uncle at age 12 how to deal with a capsized boat, so she told Lamb and Lobozzo how to handle it. Landon then w ent to get his Polaris SLX watercraft and boated out to them while they do v e under the boat in 30-foot waters. However, Landons watercraft stalled and he had to lash it to the por t side of the sailboat and stand by the mast alongside Lamb while Lobo zzo towed them all ashore with the SeaDoo. They had to go slowly. Even with the foresail disconnected, the aft sail was still catching wind, until they r eefed that sail, too and lashed it around the mast. Turbeville said he once sailed a little Sun sh sailboat a per sonal-size, beachlaunched sailing dinghy utilizing a pontoon type hull and he tur ned it o ver himself at least 15 times. B atz wants all people going out on lakes to be careful at all times, especially this weekend. He gave these tips: % Wear a life v est. Even if you are not injured, you can tire fr om tr eading water. % Oper ate your boat with care, and not under the inuence of drugs or alcohol. % Do not ov erload your boat. % Know ho w to operate your boat, and take a safe boater course. Courses are available through the Flori da Fish and Wildlife C onser vation Commission at www.my fwc.com/boating/ safety -education/ courses Boaters under a certain age need that car to operate personal watercraft, Batz said. % Hav e all your necessary safety equipment, including a noisemaker thr ow cushion, rope, re extinguishers and life vests for every one aboard. % Hav e a spotter when towing a skier or inner tube-type craft. E verybody has fun until someone gets hurt, and then its no fun for anybody, Batz said. Take proper pre cautions and use good, sound judgement. rfntbffnbt fnbtbtf rbt frfrbnrrrfb rbrbrrrfr fbnfnbtf nb trfbfrftr ntfnbtrfntrff fbrrfrt rfnfbrr fffrt ffrfrn fnbtrrf nrrtrrntrrtb rnrrf frnrrfrftt 3039459 and teachers from other schools were broken into eight groups one for each habit and given a student-led tour of the school. Each elementary school in the county has its own Leadership Day this month. Where do you nd leaders? stu dent Evonne Simpron asked the guests during the opening meeting in the cafeteria. The answ er is everywhere, especially in our school. Laur en Smithers gave the assembled visitors a lesson on the Seven Habits. This year was the rst year that every one at Cracker Trail Elementary was introduced to the Seven H abits . She said her favorite was Habit 3: Put First Things First. Playing outside sounds more fun than doing your homework, but its not as impor tant, she said. S tudents then tour ed their groups around the school, stopping at classrooms as well as special displays set up in the hallways There were nine classroom stops and eight hallway stations, with each gr oup visiting half of the stops In Clogstons room, the guests learned the classroom mission statement is We ar e r eady to learn new things every day. We are hard workers, helpful and respectful. Each class at the school has its o wn statement, and the students all hav e their own personal mission statements. They also have jobs that rotate through the students. My favorite job was the computers. Tech nology leader, student Dominic Glarner said. You turn the computers on and off and if the computer fr ee zes I had to help. In Ms. Allens second grade class, Gabe Demers showed the student blog. The teacher start the discussion with a pr ompt, and the students r espond. Fellow students can comment on their classmates responses, Facebook style. One of the prompts asked students what they would do differ ently if they were the teacher for a day If I got to be teacher for one day it would be epic, Demers wrote. Our class would be different from oth ers because we would play M inecr aft. There were also stops in the Multiple Intelligence (art) room to see students working on their projects; an update on the tr avels of F lat Stanley, who br ought back some taffy to Ms Hallorans rst-grade HAART class fr om his tr ip to Savannah, Georgia; and presentations fr om the student go vernment and student Lighthouse team, as w ell as lessons on science pr ojects and other activities, like safety patr ol and chor us. Every child had a part in what happened today, whether it was behind the scenes putting stuff in the hallways or on the tour in the classr ooms Several helped with organization or to make display boar ds for the cafeter ia this morning, so we had every student involved, said C r ystal Baugh, the schools guidance counselor and the main organizer of the Leadership Day. Today was very suc cessful. Ive had quite a few teachers fr om other schools and other counties who w ere her e and w ere excited and asked a lot of questions so they could take a lot of it to their schools The Leadership Day is a way for students to demonstrate the les sons theyve learned in the Leader in M e pr ogram are working, she said. We start here at school building a foundation of what the Seven Habits are and we encourage them to take them home and speak it with their parents so they can continued the Seven Habits ev erywhere in their life. Then, it s time for the eighth habit. Once we get the Seven Habits in place and have a good foundation, the eighth habit is to take what y ou ve learned and spread it out in the community, she said.

T op water shing is without a doubt, the most exciting way to sh for bass and for the next 4-5 months, early morning and late afternoon will be the prime time to use these baits. Many of the hard topwater baits, like the Jitterbug require noth ing more than a stop and go r etr ieve, pausing from time to time to allo w a cur ious bass to strike. Other types, like a Zara Spook require some skill on the part of the angler to walk the dog. But most are de signed to oat on the surface and with little effor t, create wakes and r ipples to dr aw strikes from nearby sh. Hard baits typically are not weedless, and often have two to three sets of treble hooks, which generally re quire open-water shing. F r ogs, Toads and Flukes, on the other hand, are typically designed to be weedless, and as a r esult, can often be shed in heavy v egetation or other cover.

In the beginning, it was Elite Plumb ing who took the lead, capitalizing dur ing the top of the rst. Sam Lieske reached on a walk before Reid Whitehouse managed a seeing-eye single and Abe Cervera drew a walk to load the bases. LJ Dosic did not make it to rst him self, but he was able to bring in a r un for Elite Plumbing before the end of their rst atbat. Firemen was quick to respond, however, with Drew Smith send ing a home run over the r ight-center eld fence that scored himself and Mason Price. K eyshawn H icks followed by blasting a double with the rst pitch he saw and was brought in by Ty Mar tz before the end of the inning for a 3-1 lead. E lite P lumbing came back with a run to lessen the margin of Firemens lead as Kaleb Lindsey stole home on a passed ball in the top of the second. Firemen proved to have some live and ready bats, howev er, and they brought their lead up b y thr ee runs in the bottom of the inning when Smith ripped a double that brought in Dustin Drake, Cody Little and Landon Baker.

www.newssun.comFriday, May 23, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A11 As a result, they are often far more productive than open-water shing with hard topwater baits. My favorite, as Ive mentioned many times is a Bass Assassin Silver Phenom, a 6-7 inch uke designed to imitate a struggling baitsh when danced across the surface. Although this bait can also be shed in open-water, casting into the heaviest vegetation with a stop and go retrieve often works best. Frogs and Toads have become increasingly popular over the past couple of years and many, like Live Targets Kopper frog are so life-like that it would be easy to mistake them for a real amphibian in the water. For many shermen, froggin has become a way of life. But for those of you that might be new to topwater bass shing, a couple of key points to keep in mind are that bass will often strike and miss the bait on purpose, hoping to stun their prey and then come back and actually eat it. If you get a strike and the bass has missed the bait, just leave it sit still for a few minutes and the bass will likely strike it again. With frogs and ukes, not only will a bass strike and miss the bait, but once they have it, you need to give them a short 5-count before setting the hook. Ive missed many bass by reacting too quickly to the strike and not giving them time to get the whole bait in their mouth. Spinnerbaits and buzzbaits also fall into the category of topwater baits that every sherman should take advantage of. Again, a stop and go retrieve, allowing the bait to run smoothly for a few feet and then dropping it will provoke the most strikes. A buzzbait is designed to work on the surface while a spinnerbait can be worked at every level within the water column. And nally, oating worms. Not to be overlooked, oating plastic worms can be one of the deadliest lures in your tackle box. Years ago, Doug Hannon introduced his snake bait, which closely resembles a coiled water snake, and coils and recoils as you retrieve it through the water. Ive shed with the snake many times and unlike a plastic worm, you dont have to impart much action on the retrieve to get results. Topwater bass shing is by far one of the most exciting ways to sh in the summertime and will generally produce results, regardless of the type of lure you choose. Reds Fishing Tackle will close on Friday, May 30. As previously mentioned in this column a few weeks ago, I am closing REDS II next week on Friday. Anyone interested may wish to stop by and take advantage of the many items on sale.

FISH FROM PAGE A9 cial ladies that we call Mother, Grandmother or Great-Grandmother and give them Mothers Day wishes. This was the fourth year HYFC has celebrated Mothers Day with the Palms and the rst at Crown Pointe. Four years ago year was the rst time the Eagles did this type of event in our community. The idea came about when Mr. Howell and his son Cole were watching TV one day and saw the Buccaneers giving food to the elderly. Cole turned to me and said Dad can our football team do something for the elderly here in Sebring? That was our rst attempt to give back to our community and it has just connected with our leagues values, beliefs and philosophies and our players and cheerleaders were excited about doing it again this year said Kay Howell, Executive Director for the Eagles. The morning started with two groups visiting the facilities at the same time. Nancy Hawk, Activities Director for the Palms began speaking with the young men and women on how important it is to give back to the community that they represent. She also touched on what a special weekend it was and indicated the fact that everyone has a Mom, how important of a role they play in the lives of their children and what special things Moms do for each one of us every day and we should always remember that simple but yet so very true fact. The group that visited Crown Pointe, gathered with all the lady residents. President Cliff Howell took a few moments to introduce the coaches and board members there and to tell the residents who the Eagles were and about our organization and then the children and coaches started handing out the owers. There were so many smiles and Thank Yous to go around. Working in the medical eld and in home health care, I have had the opportunity to work rst hand with these residents, but this was special, to see the kids smiling and talking with these ladies and their faces light up with joy was overwhelming said Melissa Lane, Public Relations Director for the Eagles. Talking with one resident just brought me to tears, said Mrs. Kay. The woman told me how nice it was to see the children there because all of her children were deceased. She then went on to explain how she lost two children during childbirth and then lost two more at a very young age and the doctors couldnt establish why, she then said you didnt get a ower, here please take mine. With tears rolling down my face, I thanked her but told her No, that was her special ower from her children in heaven. I then introduced her to my son Cole and he spoke with her for a while too. We left her with a hug and a smile as I walked away crying. Just such a touching moment that will stay with me and I believe it does the same for our players and cheerleaders. Its amazing that something so simple like giving a stranger a ower can have such an impact on the person giving it as well as the one receiving it. Several of the ladies were so very touched by the gifts and were happy to see the kids. Pee Wee players Brian Dean and Kyle Turner, Jr. took photos with residents after giving a resident a ower with a big smiles on their faces. New coaches to the Eagles and Pee Wee head coach Kyle Turner and Might Mite assistant coach Dave Neff, said they had never done anything like this before and they were honored to be part of this. Being the fourth year doing this, it never fails to affect me, Howell said. As I looked around, I saw lots of smiles on the faces of the residents and the children as well. My belief is that the kids get as much out of doing for the mothers as the mothers get from the kids, he added. The players, parents and coaches that attended the retirement home did a good thing today; it is great to be part of an association that gives back to their community and I am proud to be part of it, said Chrissi Merrick, Cheer Director for the Eagles. I am so proud of our kids and seeing the tears and smiles today were very touching. All in all the day was a real treat for the Highlands Eagles. It was a great honor and pleasure to pay tribute to these special ladies. HYFC would like to thank Merrick and Melissa Lane, Public Relations Director, Crown Pointe and the Palms of Sebring for coordinating this event and allowing us to be a part of the family. We would also like to thank the parents for allowing their children to participate in this celebration. Every child that participated in this event should be very proud of themselves, Howell said. Because I can tell you all the coaches, team moms and parents are proud of all of you.

There are no guar antees in the draft, H all of F ame general manager Pat Gillick said in pr aise for the book. Some players get to the big leagues quickly, some take longer to make it, and others never get there at all. M yron and Maimon spent nearly three years speaking to play ers, managers, scouts, executiv es and others in the game to nd out why the dr aft remains such a puzzle to even the sharpest baseball minds. Myron, who now lives in Naples, re turned to Sebring for the 2012 F A CA event, where he met many of the draft hopefuls whose stories informed much of the text. A pair of the players with whom Myron spoke that w eekend became rst-r ound draft picks less than two weeks later.

Family Features With a winter that nev er seems to end, f amilies are ach ing to enjoy some fun in the s un, turning their attention to a well-deserved getaway. According to a recent Bank of America survey, 46 per cent of Americans plan on hitting the r oad and organiz ing family-friendly vacations this y ear. But nearly half of these survey respondents, 48 per cent, said the most dif cult part of planning a trip is managing a budget. Fun, Affordable VacationsTravel Channel host Samantha Brown has trekked the globe and is an ace at keeping costs low while maximizing adventure. She shares a few budget saving tips for the millions of Amer icans looking to take a family v acation and ensure lasting memories. When you start research ing vacation destinations, its impor tant to keep in mind that a good rewards card can help to offset travel costs, Brown said. I nd that using credit cards like the BankA mericard Travel Rewards cr edit card gives you great exibility in how to use your points to cover travel ex penses ... more than just for ights You can book your travel whenever, however you choose so there are no restrictions or blackouts. Using a rewards card and following these helpful travel tricks will guarantee an un forgettable family vacation that won t break the budget. Destination, Destination, DestinationThe majority of survey respondents said they are headed to wards easy to ac cess, family-friendly desti nations like beaches, theme par ks and zoos. They also said they are careful to steer clear of popular college par ty destinations. Sixty three per cent of respondents said car trips are the preferred mode of travel because they are easier on the budget and also ensure that the vacation will be an adventure. Road trips are also ideal because travel schedules are more exible; you can stay an ex tra night in a location, or if the w eather is nice, consid er camping or visiting public par ks which are often more affordable. And dont forget travel journals for each fam ily member so they track the v acation and save memories. Save on Lodging, Park Admission FeesFamilies are increasingly looking for ways to stretch the dollar so it doesnt come as a surprise that 36 percent of men and 47 percent of women agreed that costs are extremely important when planning a vacation. Half of the survey respondents agreed that hotels and lodg ing generally eat up most of the budget. S earch for ways to save a bit of money in oth er places by being exible with y our dates or traveling to locations that are off the beaten path. You can also use rewards points youve al ready accumulated towards lodging or air fare expenses. Some travel rewards credit cards let you use your points to pay yourself back for any type of travel purchase such as ights hotels, vacation packages, cruises, rental cars or baggage fees through a statement credit. You can even use your points to pay for theme park tickets and camp sites. Plan Out Your ActivitiesOne of the best parts about a family vacation is getting the whole family involved in the travel planning pro cess. Hold a family meeting about a month befor e your trip and have each member choose and plan an activi ty so everyone is invested in the family v acation. This will take all the responsibility off the parents shoulders and make travel easier. Challenge the family to plan activities that are unique to the area those you wouldnt be able to do in your hometown like surng, mountain hiking or stargazing. These types of new and unique activities will create lasting memories and strengthen the bonds of family which is what fam ily vacations are all about. I ts also fun to choose activi ties that allow your children to see y ou acting like a kid. For example, go-cart racing, trampoline parks or eating ice cream sundaes for dinner are great ways for kids to see their parents lighten up and have a great time. Have a Backup PlanWhenever you travel, youre likely to experience missed connections, wrong turns, long lines or unex pected closings. One thing y ou can do to prepare for the unexpected is to create a plan A and plan B for your entire trip. Start two weeks in advance of your depar ture date by brainstorming with the whole family all of the possible routes, attrac tions, restaurants and hotels that y oud like to incorporate into your trip. Throughout the next two weeks, narrow down the list and create two plans for going to your des tination and heading back home In the event you run into any issues, you wont have to waste time guring out another option. Also, its always important to remember that your children may cop y the way you react dur ing a stressful situation an ideal time to teach y our kids coping skills.Pay with Your CardMost families (77 percent) pay for purchases during va cations with credit cards. This not only minimiz es the amount of cash or travel ers checks you should car ry, but it allows you to offset costs. Since most places accept cr edit cards, think about using a rewards card for big ticket expenses like gas, theme park admission and hotels. If you use a re wards credit card for those pur chases, it frees up cash for smaller expenses and also accumulates points that you can use on your next vaca tion.

What obligation do hardworking people have toward their less successful siblings, especially one who has been a free loader his entire life? Rusty sponged off his aging parents to keep from having to earn a decent liv ing. We feel sorry for him, but it s the bed he made for himself years ago when he took shortcuts. Were afraid if we give him a hand, hell expect an arm next time. As far as Im con cerned, only Rustys laziness prevents him fr om getting a parttime job to help pay the bills. If we give him money, well have to do it for the other siblings on both sides. I know this sounds uncharitable, but we worked for 40 years and struggled through everything life had to throw at us. We saved every penny we could and invested wisely. How do we deal with family members who can take care of them selves, but dont?

The se ries original director, B ryan Singer, contin ues that momentum in the vigor ously enter taining X-Men: Days of F uture Past. While its more dramatically diffuse than the reboot and lacks a denitive villain, the new lm is shot through with a stir ring reverence for the M arvel Comics charac ters and their universe. And it ups the stakes by threatening nothing less than the genocide of the mutant popula tion, among them faces old and new Hardcore followers will have a geek eld day dissecting the chal lenging pretzel logic of wr iter-producer Si mon Kinbergs screenplay, from a story by J ane Goldman, Kinberg and Vaughn, who had originally planned to di rect. The central premise comes from the 1981 U ncanny X-Men comic Days of Future Past, in which Kitty Pryde (El len Page) uses her consciousness transference po wers to go back from a dystopian future and rewrite history. Echoes of the Ho locaust have rippled thr oughout the series, and Singer opens with present-day scenes of a desolate, burnt-out New York, where mu tants and mutant-sympathizing humans have been r ounded up in in ternment camps. J umping to a similar ly devastated Moscow, w e watch Kitty, Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) and a small band of mu tants face an attack fr om the deadly Senti nels. Dropped in from airbor ne carrier ships, these robots are de signed to track and destroy the mutant gene. They r esemble tower ing, muscular versions of the aliens fr om Close Encounters of the Third Kind, constructed out of magnetic plates that allow them to change shape and adapt to whatever force is un leashed against them. The mutants escape and regroup in the rub ble of an ancient Chinese monastery with P rofessor X (Patrick Stewart), Magneto (Ian McKellen), Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) and Storm (Halle Berry). The movie is missing an explanation of how traditional adversaries Professor X and Mag neto reached a collaborative truce. But within the elastic boundar ies of comic-book mythol ogy that seems no big deal, and it s nice to see their bromance rekin dled. Thr eatened with ex tinction, the mutant holdouts hatch a plan to return to the postVietnam Paris Peace Accord of 1973, when Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) killed Dr. Bo livar Trask (Peter Dinklage), a U.S. military scientist dev eloping the Sentinels program. Mystique was captured and experimented on, with the transforma tive powers of her DNA tapped to per fect the Sentinels. Wolverines ability to heal makes him the only one able to with stand the 40-year time jump Kinbergs script milks welcome humor out of sending the least diplomatic of the XMen back to convince the younger Professor X (James McAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fass bender) to join forces and stop the assassina tion that triggered antimutant hyster ia. Hav ing Wolverine awaken on a waterbed star ing at a lava lamp and lis tening to Roberta Flack lightens the mood at just the right moment. Its hard to imag ine fanboys having too much to gr umble about here, as Singer has pulled together an ambitious, suspense ful screen chapter that secur es a future for the franchise while facilitat ing continued reinvention. Audiences should sit tight thr ough the end credits crawl for an enigmatic signoff scene that provides a taste of the next installment, XMen: Apocalypse. X-Men, a 20th Cen tury Fox release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Pictur e Association of America for sequences of intense sciviolence and action, some sug gestive material, nudity and language .

www.newssun.comFriday, May 23, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | B3 3035666 HEALTh H Y L LIVING Ingrown toenails, warts, bruises, moles ....what do they have in common? On the feet, skin cancer can resemble a variety of common foot prob lems. In humans, skin cancer is actually the most common form of cancer. The three main types of skin cancer are basal cell carci noma, squamous cell car cinoma, and mel anoma. Even though, melanoma is the r ar er of the three, 75 per cent of all skin cancer deaths result from malignant melanoma. S kin cancer can de velop anywhere on the body including the feet and legs. Sometimes there is a history of recurrent bleeding, cracking or ulceration but many times they are pain less. O n the feet, mela noma is known as the gr eat masquerader be cause it can resemble benign moles blood blisters, ingrown toe nails, plantar warts, br uises or foreign bodies. This skin cancer many times begins as a small brown-black spot or bump but in one-third of the cas es will lack brown pigment and may appear pink or r ed. A common miscon ception is that melanoma occur only in fair skinned fr eck led, light-haired people. Although darkskinned people ar e less likely to get skin cancer, they are sus ceptible to Acral Lentiginous Melanoma on the soles of their feet. S imple tips to avoid skin cancer include: % A void deliberate tanning in a tan ning bed or outside in the sun. Your risk for melanoma dou bles if you have had mor e than ve sun burns. % Lather up with sun screen SPF 30+ fr om head to pro tect your skin from the sun s harmful rays. % Check y our feet and in-between toes regularly for abnor mal-looking moles or freckles every where, even under toenails and on y our soles. % B eware of moles or freckles that change in size or shape. % Lear n the ABCDs of Melanoma: Asym metry sides dont match; B orders look uneven; Color may have more than one color.; Di ameter wider than a pencil er aser. % A suspicious discol ored ingrown toenail that keeps reoccurring and bleeds easily should be checked. Schedule an ap pointment with your podiatr ist who will help you keep track of suspicious, chang ing marks. May is Melanoma/Skin Cancer D etection & Preven tion Month. Once you suspect that y ou have a skin cancer on your feet call your podia trist for an appointment immediately. A simple skin biopsy can save your life.Dr. Olga Garcia Luepschen and the Gentle Foot Care Center are located on US 27. For more information vis it www.gentlefootcarecenter. com or call 863-314-9255. This information is not in tended to diagnose, treat or cur e your condition.Are you a victim of Melanoma May? FOOTPRINTSDr. Olga Luepschen Dear Pharmacist: What does it mean when it says take on an empty stomach or take with food be cause I never adhere to those war nings and Im still alive. Does it really matter? J.J., Denver, ColoradoAnswer: It matters in most cases, but not all. With antibi otics, it may be that y our medicine reach es a higher blood level when you take it on an empty stomach, but over the course of therapy, it doesnt change the outcome, meaning the patho gens are killed. W ith other medi cations, for example sleeping pills a warn ing to avoid alcohol is important and should be adher ed to because the combi nation could be fatal. S ame thing with cer tain antidepressants (MA O inhibitors) that cant be combined with cheese, or death could result. For your safety, let me give you the prop er questions to ask y our doctor and/or pharmacist: 1. What is the name of the condition that you are treating me for? 2. What is the brand name and generic name of the medica tion that youre prescribing? 3. Do I take it in the morning, or at night, or divide the dose throughout the day? 4. Better with food or empty stomach? 5. About how long before I begin to see results? 6. Is there a less ex pensive generic alter native? 7. Are there any sup plements that could help this medicine work better, or any to avoid? 8. Is it OK to drink wine (if that applies) with my medicine? 9. Will coffee, dairy or mineral supple ments inactivate my medicine? 10. H ow long do I stay on this medica tion? Some medications are only intended for a few days or w eeks, but people re main on them indenitely. This is the most impor tant question to ask. If the caution label states on an empty stomach that means two hours after you eat, or one hour be forehand. If it states take with food it means to take it while eating or right after. If it says do not op erate machinery or equipment that is your clue that your medicine makes you drowsy or clumsy. It means to avoid driving, using a chainsaw, mo wing your lawn or anything that requires you to focus. Heres another good rule of thumb: Start low and go slow! With medications, the low est effective dose is ideal. You dont need to kill a y with a shot gun and if you try, you could wind up with side effects that you would not experience with a lower dose. And nally, if you notice your medica tion keeps you up at night, then don t take it too late in the day. Examples of medi cines that are best taken in the mor ning include thyroid med icine, steroids like pr ednisone, atten tion-decit drugs like Ritalin or the fatigue buster Provigil. Examples of med icine that should be taken at night in clude certain antihistamines (like diphenhydramine), anxiolytics like alpr a zolam, pain medicines like hydrocodone and muscle r elaxers. If in doubt, call your local phar macist or physician.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

E phesians is a followup letter to the saints in that city after Paul taught them the mes sage of grace and their conv ersion/obedience recorded in Acts 19-20. In verses 1-3, he recalls their former life out side of grace, i.e. Jesus, the Chr ist. A key to understand ing grace is under standing mercyis the outwar d manifesta tion of pity; it assumes need on the par t of him who receives it, and the resources adequate to meet the need on the part of him who shows it. (Vines Complete Expository Dictionary) This connection be tween mercy and grace is beautifully descr ibed to Titus: But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righ teousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of r egenera tion and renewing by the H oly Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justied by His grace we would be made heirs, according to the hope of eternal life (Titus 3:4-7). The gift of grace de clared through Jesus was accor ding to Gods eternal plan: who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was giv en to us in Christ Jesus befor e time began, but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immorality to light through the gospel (2 Timothy 1:9,10). Un derstanding this truth helps us to r ealize that this Gift is undeserved, unearned and unmer ited! W e readily recognize the connection in the following triangle: giv er, gift and receiver. If ther e is a gift offered and no receiver, then the power of the gift is voided and the giver is denied the opportu nity of being a benefactor. But, if the gift is r eceived, then the tri angle is completed and the negativ e results are removed. Study the follow ing: For the grace of G od that brings salva tion has appeared to all men (Titus 2:11). But we see Jesus, who was made a little low er than the angels, for the suffer ing of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for every one (Hebrews 2:9). Ther e is no denial that the Gift has been of fered! The H oly Spirit fur ther instructs in Hebrews 5:9 And having been perfected, H e became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him. Of course, this coin cides with the statement of the Master in M atthew 7:21 Not ev eryone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heav en, but he who does the will of M y Father in heaven. Inspiration has provided us with numerous records of receptive hearts to the gift of salvation such as the 3,000 on Pentecost (Acts 2:36-41), great many priests (Acts 6:7), men and women in Sa maria (Acts 8:5-14), L ydia and her house hold (Acts 16:13-15), etc But the Bible deals with reality. There were those who rejected the gift of grace and its blessings. But when the Jews saw that mul titudes, they were lled with envy ; and contra dicting and blaspheming, they opposed the things spoken b y Paul. Then Paul and Barn abas grew bold and said, It was neces sary that the word of G od should be spoken to you rst; but since you reject it, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, behold, we turn to the Gen tiles (Acts 13:45,46). And w e recall the tragic rejection by Agrippa, You almost persuade me to be come a Christian (Acts 26:28). Choice! C on sider the eternal Truth declar ed through Mo ses, I call heaven and ear th as a witnesses to day against you, that I hav e set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descen dants may live (Deuteronomy 30:19).Frank Parker can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Appointed2 brings message to Church of GodPlacid TempleLAKE PLACID Appointed2 features two talented artists, namely Randy and Amy, from Orlando. Both wish to touch lives and inspire peo ple through their love for music They will be hav ing an event on June 8 at the Chur ch of GodPlacid Temple, 51 Lake June Road. The event starts at 10:30 / a.m. A well-known magazine carried an article several years ago about a for est re in Yellowstone Nation al Park. After the blaze was extinguished, for est rangers began their tr ek up a mountain to assess the infernos damage. One ranger found a bird literally petried in the ashes, perched statuesquely on the ground at the base of a tree. Somewhat sick ened by the eerie sight, he knocked o ver the birds remains with a stick. When he struck it, three tiny chicks scurried from under their dead mothers wings. The loving mother, keenly aware of the impending disaster, had carr ied her offspring to the base of the tree and had gathered them under her wings. She could have own to safety but had refused to abandon her babies. When the blaze had ar rived and the heat had scor ched her small body, the mother had remained steadfast. Because she had been willing to die, those under the cover of her wings would live. The rst part of Psalm 91:4 gives us a similar picture of Gods love for us. It reads, He will cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you will nd r efuge ... It is a truly remarkable sto ry that a mother bird would giv e up her life for her babies, but it is a far more remarkable story that God gave the life of His one and only Son to save each one of us from our sins. Romans 5:6-8 reads, For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will hardly die for a righ teous man; though per haps for the good man someone would dare even to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
