A 2-yard run on fourth and short gave them a first down at the 49, and one play later, a 13-yard pickup set the Eagles up with a first down at the Dr. Phillips’ 38. Three plays later, Atlantic opted not to try a 47-yard field goal on fourth down and, instead, pitched the ball outside, but DPHS’s Cameron Williams chased down the running back and knocked him out of bounds a yard short of the stick to give the Panthers the ball once again. Atlantic’s final possession of the third quarter met the same fate as its other drives. The Eagles drove 49 yards in six plays down to the DPHS 13, looking to break through, but Ingram and Powell crashed through the line and drove the quarterback down for a 10-yard loss. On fourth and 22 from the 23, Atlantic heaved a pass toward the left side of the end zone, but DPHS senior safety Tanner Ingle knocked it away for the third consecutive turnover on downs. The Dr. Phillips High School football players are excited to add a state championship ring to their fingers. The mighty DPHS offense took over at the 23 and needed to chew time off the clock but could not pick up a first down in its previous two possessions. Things were different on this drive, though. On third and 5 from the DPHS 28, sophomore receiver Trey Schyck caught a pass from McCray in the right flat and dove for a first down across the 36- yard line to move the chains. After a pair of runs by McCray for 8 yards sent the Panthers into the fourth quarter, the senior quarterback zipped a third-down pass into the hands of junior Devon Buckhanon and the 6-foot-3-inch receiver churned ahead for a gain of 19 and another DPHS first down. While the drive stalled at the Atlantic 34, the success was in the 4 minutes burned off the clock and gave Stockwell another opportunity to flip the field with a punt down to the Atlantic 15. Still trailing 10-0, Atlantic immediately went to the air, but it proved disastrous. On second and 10, Cameron Williams, who was lined up at the 20, saw the Atlantic running back flare out to the right and immediately saw the screen pass coming. Before the quarterback could even see him, Williams charged to his right, intercepted the pass with one hand, and, in a split second, was in the end zone, nearly buried under a pile of Panthers. For Williams, who has so consistently and quietly delivered all season long, this was his defining play of the year and the redemption he so richly deserved. With a 17-0 lead and just over 9 minutes remaining, the DPHS defense was tested again on Atlantic’s ensuing possession. Completions for 18 and 23 yards gave the Eagles a first down at the DPHS 35, but one play later, Powell slipped into the backfield and drilled the quarterback for a 10-yard loss to forever wash away his disappointment of a year ago, as well. Three plays later, on fourth and 5, Cameron Williams put the CONTINUED ON PAGE 8 Andy Phillips, Agent 7608 W Sand Lake Road Orlando, FL 32819 Bus: 407-354-1320 andy.phillips.kraa@ Save $761. * Combine Home & Auto.

Jackson Often the poorest people leave their children the richest inheritance. Regardless of how much or how little, throughout one’s lifetime most people acquire some measure of prosperity. Whether it is simply family photos, an old car and a small bank account or an abundance of wealth including real estate, savings, insurance policies, and investment accounts, most everyone today dies having acquired something to leave behind to their loved ones. If you have made no plans to pass your prosperity on to your loved ones, you may burden them with needless family feuds and substantial legal and court costs to settle your estate. Realize “You Can’t Take It With You.” Although the holidays are supposed to be a time for family and celebration, for many it is a time for unexpected sadness. According to a study published in the journal of Social Science & Medicine, it found that more people are likely to die on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day than any other day of the year. Also reported by the National Center for Health Statistics, as many as 18% more people die during the holiday season, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, than any other time of the year. In the Charles Dickens’s classic, The Christmas Carol, the Ghost of Christmas Present told Ebenezer Scrooge that “There is never enough time to do or say all the things that we would wish. The thing is to try to do as much as you can in the time that you have. Remember Scrooge, time is short, and suddenly, you’re not here anymore.” Realizing that one, or both, of your parents is getting older and possibly needing assistance is difficult to process. Often parents are unwilling to discuss their health with you because of their embarrassment, shame, denial or even pride. There is no better time than the Holidays to open the dialogue with your parents about their health, welfare and happiness. Why are the Holidays an opportune time for discussions about family health issues and asset protection? Most people are less pressured by daily work routines, family members are able to come together, and most importantly, you, your spouse and your siblings can comfortably open a discussion over a glass of eggnog and a turkey leg or while opening gifts. Rarely, if ever, is there a first-hand opportunity throughout the year to have such discussions with your parents. So how do we make our parents feel comfortable talking about their health and asset protection? Remember, the discussion is about is your parents’ estate planning which includes their health, assets, family, loved ones, not-so-loved ones, gifts, feuds, drama and more. It is about their dayto-day living and their legacy and not simply about their demise. So start the discussion anywhere. One way to begin is to discuss those documents everyone should have during life such as a health care surrogate or a durable power of attorney. If your mother enters the hospital while unconscious, your father or another family member cannot make a medical decision for her without her having granted written authorization them to do so. If your mother is your only surviving parent, who will pay her bills while she lay unconscious? This too, requires a durable power of attorney signed by her. The Holidays are meant to be a joyous time for family and friends to share intimate and loving concerns for one another and to celebrate the coming New Year. And once you have shared eggnog, turkey, gifts, champagne and fireworks with family and friends, think about beginning the New Year by setting up a consultation with an estate planning attorney to discuss how to help safeguard your parents’ future. Remember, mom and dad, “time is short, and suddenly, you’re not here anymore and you can’t take it with you.” Legal Areas of Practice By our Team of Attorneys Administrative Advance Directives Bankruptcy Business Buy / Sell Contracts Commercial Contracts Corporation Criminal Employment Estate Planning Family Law Guardianship Litigation Last Wills Medicaid Powers Of Attorney Pre-Nuptials Probate Real Estate Special Needs Title & Closings Trusts Trademark Estate Planning Wills, Trusts, Probate, Living Wills, Powers of Attorney, Health Care Directives, Pre-Need Guardians, Trust Administration, Pet (Animal) Trusts Probate With or without a Last Will, in order to obtain assets, pay debts and taxes and distribute remaining assets to the heirs or beneficiaries, the deceased’s estate requires the assistance of an attorney to manage the court supervised administration.
