Dr. Edward Schor, one of the study’s authors, cites Florida’s low employer-sponsored health insurance benefits, coupled with the recession and the weak job market, as one reason. The unemployment rate in Florida and Highlands County stands at 11 percent. “We are seeing people who never had to come to us before. But they’ve been laid off or had their hours shortened, can’t afford insurance, and need specialized medical care,” said Billie Hetherton, administrative assistant at the Highlands County Human Services Department, an agency which has limited funds to pay medical providers for specialty care. In 2009, the most recent year for which figures are available, close to 18 percent of Florida’s population under 18 years of age and close to 27 percent of its parents 19-64 years of age were uninsured. Among low income individuals, the numbers are higher. Atotal of 28 percent of the State’s children ages 0-18 and 50 percent of parents ages 1964 with incomes at or below 199 percent of the Federal poverty level had no health State, county medically uninsured rates are high In 2009 ... 20% of Highlands County's children were uninsured 36% of Highlands County's adults were uninsured By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING — County Commissioners made no decisions, but did state that they would look hard at funding the county’s three chambers of commerce in the upcoming budget. According to County Administrator Rick Helms, the county’s contributions to the chambers has decreased from $7,000 each in 1997 to $2,500 in 2010. “We have to look very closely to what we have. When times are great, people don’t scrutinize as much,” said Commission Chairwoman Barbara Stewart. “It is going to be a hard sell for me.” “For the amount of investment we have received from the county, if you look at the benefits we bring to the county, you are making a County debates chambers of commerce funds By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK — Shawn Finigan, 42, was killed Monday in a crash on I-95 near Boynton Beach.

Her wild orange ice cream and wild orange pie were particular favorites. When she had to leave the park, Davis opened a new take-out restaurant on the corner of Kenilworth and Lakeshore drives called Bon Creek. Bon Creek is the name of a small stream that ran through her family’s property near St. Petersburg, where she grew up. There she serves the same menu she had in the state park — including the ice cream and pie — hamburgers, Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, and barbecue. Six weeks ago, Davis said, Jason Laman bought the Golf Hammock restaurant and reached out to her to turn it into a dinning destination. Now known as the Hammock Family Restaurant, lunch and dinner are served Monday through Friday and breakfast, lunch and dinner on Sunday. The restaurant is closed on Saturdays.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comWAUCHULA— It takes a special person to do the job that Sebring resident and the Center for Great Apes employee Pete O’Neill does. O’Neill has been an employee at the center for only eight months, but he has spent countless hours caring for, learning about and protecting one of the world’s most interesting creatures, the orangutan. When O’Neill was presented with the chance to be a part of a project involving creating another sanctuary for his beloved animals, he jumped at it. O’Neill is one of thousands of candidates to be a part of a feature documentary film. The film will address deforestation by documenting the conservation of rain forests as well as the creation of an ape sanctuary for orangutans. The film will be entitled Project Borneo 3D. Borneo is a large island located in the Pacific Ocean near Southeast Asia. The island is covered in rain forests that rival the ones found in South America. Candidates for Project Borneo 3D must create and upload a video pitch. The 90-second video is part of the selection process that allows the selection committee to choose based on the number of views each video has received. The project will allow volunteers to participate in the documentary for five months. “Deforestation is a big problem there, just like it is in South America,” O’Neill said. “The orangutans are the key species there. This sanctuary will be the largest one in the world.” The competition is stiff but the payoff will be well worth the effort. The chosen entrants will be working with acclaimed scientist Dr. Willie Smits and Orangutan Outreach. Queensland production company and Virgo Productions are the creators of the film and will work in collaboration with National Geographic Entertainment. Sebring resident competes for opportunity of a lifetime Pete O'Neill hoping to be part of orangutan movie in Borneo See SEBRING, page 7A Public safety presentation “This may be the highlight of this game,” Fox Sports announcer Dick Stockton said after Sgt. Mark Foster stunned his wife, daughter and country with a surprise return from Afghanistan on the 20-yard-line of an NFL football stadium. During the Washington RedskinsTennessee Titans game on Nov. 20, 2010, millions watched a tearful family embrace, filling their television screens with the raw emotions of war. As the initial shock began to subside in the stands of Nashville’s LP Field, the 101st Airborne Division paratrooper’s spouse, Jodi, asked a dreaded question. “When do you have to go back?” Sgt. Foster, 38, hated having to tell his wife and youngest child that not long after Thanksgiving, he’d be back in a war zone. “My 12-year-old daughter, Kayla, put it best — (rest and recuperation) kind of sucks when you’re deployed,” Mark told The Unknown Soldiers. “You have to go back and miss your family all over again.” Foster’s feisty wife, who jokingly chastised her Army husband during our conversation for not doing enough laundry while he was home, wholeheartedly agreed. “It was really hard,” Jodi, 33, recalled. “It’s almost like they tease you with R&R — they dangle him being home in front of you.” The sergeant had already been through four combat tours in Iraq, but the last 12 weeks of his first deployment to Afghanistan, after returning from his surprise trip home, were among the most difficult of his life. “It was probably the longest three months I’ve ever spent, although they’re always longer after leave,” Mark said. “It was rough, it was cold and it snowed a lot.” On March 10, Jodi and three anxious kids stood near the TennesseeKentucky border at Fort Campbell, waiting for the first glimpse of a returning hero and his brothers in arms. This time, the family would reunite on an Army airfield instead of a football field, but there was still a minor surprise in store for the soldier’s wife. “I didn’t recognize him at first because he lost so much weight over there,” Jodi admitted. “The last few minutes waiting to get to hug him were tough, but it’s great having him home.” As a career journalist who has never served in the military, I naively asked the soldier how he was enjoying his time off. The sergeant told me he went back to work at 5:30 a.m. the day after getting home. “When we come back, there is a mandatory reintegration period,” Mark explained. “But it’s only The long way home See SOLIDER, page 3A POLICEBLOTTER By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK – City Council voted 5-0 to lower garbage rates for Avon Park residents Monday. According to Interim City Manager Julian Deleon, resident have paid $20 per month for garbage collections since 2002, but Deleon told council that changes in the permitting for the local landfill will save the city $793,796. The changes in permitting at the landfill from a fullscale garbage collection site to just yard waste only is where the cost savings will come from, and the changes reduced the need for post closure costs to the landfill. Changing the permitting also reduced the time for post closure monitoring from 30 years to just 60 days. “We only use the site for yard waste, and by changing the permit, we can drop the costs significantly and do away with the need for a certified operator out there. That is a lot of savings,” Deleon said. According to Deleon, the savings can also be used to pay off $104,639 in debt on sanitation trucks. The council also voted to pay off that debt. The rate decrease may take up to three months to take effect, Deleon said, and will only apply to residential customers. The rate reduction will amount to about 10 percent less in fees and lower the monthly bill to $18.

insurance. Highlands County also fares badly. In 2009, the percentage of uninsured children was 20 percent and the percentage of uninsured adults, including parents and nondependent adults without children, was 36 percent. Among those with incomes at or below 200 percent of the Federal poverty level, 24 percent of children and 51 percent of adults were uninsured. But the recession is not the only reason why Florida has such a high uninsured population. According to Dr. Schor, another reason is Florida’s limited access to public insurance programs. The federal government has set minimum levels at which states must provide insurance coverage for children, pregnant women, and parents in order to receive federal matching funds through Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), known in Florida as Florida KidCare. The levels are based on the Federal Poverty Levels (FPL) released annually. States determine how much above those levels they will provide coverage. Acomparative study of coverage in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured indicates the limitations in Florida: — While Florida provides coverage to children with family incomes up to 200 percent FPL, 25 states and the District of Columbia provide coverage at or above 250 percent, and New York provides coverage at 400 percent. — While Florida provides coverage to pregnant women with family incomes up to 185 percent FPL, 17 states and the District of Columbia provide coverage at or above 200 percent and some at 300 percent. —Even though parent eligibility for Medicaid remains low in all states, Florida’s coverage is among the most limited. Florida caps eligibility at 20 percent FPLfor jobless parents and 59 percent FPLfor working parents. —Florida, like most States, does not provide any coverage to adults who have no dependent children and are not disabled. But seven states do provide Medicaid or Medicaid-comparable coverage. Agencies that work with low-income, uninsured individuals and families have advocated for increasing the levels of public insurance coverage. The Florida Association of Healthy Start Coalitions has tried to get the level raised for pregnant women, but without success. “Medicaid funds just aren’t available,” said Debra Caruso, Highlands County Healthy Fund supervisor. Are there eligible children and parents who could be enrolled in Medicaid and Florida KidCare but aren’t? There probably are. “Some might not know that they’re eligible; some might feel there’s a stigma attached to being enrolled; and some with alien status might be afraid to sign up, even if they’re here legally, for fear of bad consequences,” said Dr. Schor. When children and adults are uninsured, they are less likely to obtain preventive care and early treatment for medical conditions. That puts them at higher risk for serious health problems and chronic conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes. Because they don’t receive regular care, they are more likely to use hospital emergency rooms for non-urgent care, even though more appropriate, less expensive services are available. good investment,” said David Greenslade, the Avon Park chamber’s executive director. “One of the important tasks that we do is to act as welcome centers for visitors to the county,” Greenslade said. “Our costs are going up, but our revenues are going down.” “All of our actions have a positive economic impact to our county,” Eileen May, executive director of the Lake Placid chamber, said. “The chambers welcome thousands of people into our county who have disposal income. Using events to bring visitors to our county that bring an economic impact to our county.” The arguments wavered both ways on funding the chambers, and the public voiced their opposing opinions on the issue. “Your investment last year into these chambers was less than 1 percent of your total economic development, and I would encourage you to continue to make this minimal investment into our community,” said Ray Royce, a member of the Lake Placid chamber board of directors. “Taxpayers also have no money. I know it is just $2,500, but they could raise that if they could just work harder. They could do what they are doing, but do it more effectively,” local resident Kevin Shutt said pointing to social media and the Internet. “I think it is morally wrong to take money from your citizens and give it to these private organizations, whether they are non-profit or for profit,” Shutt said. “I know that they can get the information from the Internet or Facebook. It is a lot different when people come in,” said Lake Placid chamber volunteer Marlene Barger. “The Internet is impersonal, nothing is important as the personal touch. We need to keep people coming in and purchasing and buying homes. I hope you continue to support the chambers.” “The chambers do a great job, but if you all want to join the chambers, write them a check. Don’t spend taxpayer dollars on it,” said local resident Mike Berry. Sebring resident Barry Foster asked the commission to move the money from the Tourist Development Council and give some of it to the chambers. “You could parcel the TDC money out to them and have three locations to take in forms. You could slash the TDC budget in half and give them 10 times the funding you currently have,” Foster said. Amistake was made in 2009 when the county budgeted $2,500 to each chamber and actually paid $3,500, Greenslade told commissioners. Commissioner Jack Richie asked why the $1,000 overage was not sent back to the county. “When the budget was passed, our offices were never notified that the budgets were cut. We did not know anything was wrong until this year,” Greenslade said. Stewart suggested that in the past she recommended that the funding be reduced from $2,500 to $1,500 this year to make up the difference, but the previous commission voted no to that motion. “If for some reason you did not have the $7,500 and you were forced to cut, would you find that funding somewhere else?” commissioner Don Elwell asked. “We certainly won’t close our doors, and we would continue to do the job the best we can,” May said. www.newssun.comNews-SunlFriday, April 1, 2011Page 3A Continued from page 1A a few hours a day, and then you get to come home and spend time with your family.” I asked the soldier how he is doing emotionally after his fifth overseas deployment in support of America’s post-9/11 missions. Foster told me that loud noises and large groups of people make him uncomfortable. “I’ll be honest — the hardest part is going to work and still not having peace and quiet,” Mark said. “It’s nice to just play a video game or watch a movie without having anyone, even the kids, running around. “That’s the most overwhelming thing because I’m just not used to it.” Like so many military families around the nation, the Fosters are either dealing with being apart or moving around together. In the fall, they will transition from Fort Campbell to Fort Hood, a massive Army post about an hour from Austin, Texas. “It’s been an adjustment for all of us,” Jodi said. “You get into a routine, and then you have to change the routine.” Sgt. Mark Foster, who struck me with his up-front, no-nonsense demeanor during our November and March conversations, said it’s critical for a nation fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, and now Libya, to comprehend war’s impact on hundreds of thousands of American families. “It’s kind of like they get stuck holding the bag,” the soldier said. “People have got to understand that when we leave, it’s not necessarily because we want to. It’s because we have to.” To find out more about Tom Sileo, or to read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate website at www.creators.com.

S tanding on the shore of any of our lakes, the w ater's surface glitteri ng in the sun, the b reeze rustling leaves, b ird songs filling the a ir along with the hum o f dragon flies, it is e asy to relax into the w onders of nature; e asy to be at peace; e asy to forget about t he rest of the world.But the rest of the world is o ut there, much of it filled w ith danger, death and pain. We were reminded of that W ednesday as Dr. Cary P igman said a temporary g oodbye to his colleagues at F lorida Hospital Heartland Division, on his way to a sixmonth deployment as an emergency room physician in Iraq. We are reminded with every newscast just how fortunate we are as we watch our military forces help to protect civilians in Libya, continue the fight in Afghanistan and Iraq, and join the effort to contain the damage at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan. We know it is not Memorial Day, or the Fourth of July, or Veterans Day, but if ever there was a time to remember the men and women who expose themselves to terrible risks on our behalf, now is that time. If ever there was a time to come together as a nation regardless of our individual politics and stand united behind our armed forces, now is that time. If ever there was a time to remember the families with loved ones in peril, who stand on the same shores of the same lakes that we do surrounded by the same beauty as we are, but who can't see that beauty, or feel the same peace, because of their worry and anguish now is the time.

Florida's former attorney general, Bill McCollum, and present Attorney General Pam Bondi both favor overturning it in the courts. Governor Rick Scott is refusing to prepare for its implementation. Rep. Tom Rooney, who represents Highlands County, co-sponsored a 2009 bill introduced by Rep. Tom Price of Georgia. The badly misnamed bill is called the Empowering Patients First bill. It is probably close to what we would end up with if the Obama reform is thrown out. Rep. Price claimed that the Empowering Patients Act would insure all Americans "without costing the taxpayers a penny." President Obama replied that it is impossible to insure 30 million Americans without cost. Price's claim seems to be dishonest. Subsidies for insurance companies are included, but taxes to pay for them are not. The Congressional Budget Office, CBO, found that the Republican bill would cost $100 billion a year more than the actual reform law. The Price bill is based on virtually forcing employees to enroll in company health plans. There are two practical problems here. First, insurance companies could still reject those with pre-existing conditions. Second, there is no provision for the jobless, unless the states want to provide insurance for them. Those with preexisting conditions would be forced into high risk pools set up in each state. One criticism is that high risk pools have been around for decades yet only about 200,000 Americans get their health insurance this way, mainly because of cost. On his Web site, Rep. Rooney dishonestly implies that consumers would be unable to change doctors under the Obama reform. Yet many employer health plans restrict employees to a list of doctors. Republican legal opposition to the Obama reform is based on the claim that the federal government cannot force anyone to buy an item such as insurance. This poses an interesting question. If the Federal Congress cannot force an individual to buy insurance, can it force an employee to enroll in a company health plan? Either requirement could make sense under the federal government's power t o regulate interstate commerce. Requiring an individual to buy insurance somewhere certainly give s more choices than forcing everyone into an employe r plan. The Republican plan favors portability, which may not mean what you think it means. Portability doesn't mean that you can keep your health insuranc e when you change jobs. Instead, it means that insu rers can sell insurance across state lines without regard to state law. With portability, when you buy a policy from an out-of-stat e company, the policy overrides state law. This relies on the federal governmen t, with its authority over interstate commerce, givin g insurance companies permission to ignore the states. Oddly enough, Republican Congressmen favor undermining state law for the benefit of insu rance companies. Suppose that the legisla ture in your state decides that health insurance should cover alcoholism, in an effort to reduce drunk driving. Under penalty, an y insurer based in a state without this requirement would be free to ignore th at law. The Congressional Budget Office concluded that under the Republican bill, the number of insured would remain unchanged. In Highlands County, that means that a third of the people would still be with out health insurance. This puts a strain on our hospitals and results in costs being passed on to local taxpayers. The health care bill passed by Congress made insurance companies subject to antitrust law, for th e first time. Liberal critics concluded that Rep. Tom Price's Republican health bill is similar to plans tha t failed in Texas and California. Dale Gillis is a Sebring resident.

V iewpoint shows disrespect E ditor: For 400 years, Americans d edicated to the word of G od, and its application in o ur lives, have offered biblic al references for electing c itizens to office in our vario us forms of government. F rom charters established at t heir departure to come to t his great land, to compacts m ade after establishing a sett lement; from the D eclaration of I ndependence, the Articles of C onfederation, to the C onstitution of the United S tates of America. Adocum ent in existence for 223 y ears this June 21, 2011; this i s historical in itself. This is t he longest representative r epublic under such a docum ent in all of history. This document and the c ountry it governs are now u nder attack by those who h old office and are influe nced by global adherents to a nother ideology. This phil osophy is in contrast to our d ocuments of independence a nd our constitutional repres entative republic. This v iewpoint is based on prog ressive and socialistic writi ngs contrary to the writings o f our founding fathers. It d isrespects the countless A merican men and women w ho have given their lives to d efend the ideals in these w ritings. This must end. This nation was called to d efend the freedoms b estowed on us by God from t he pulpits of various churches in the early years of this republic. That was silenced by a floor amendment to the federal tax law offered by then Senator Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas on July 2, 1954. This amendment was passed without the benefit of congressional hearings. This is an attack on the first amendment to the constitution, and just one of many that have been proposed. Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, "...whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it." We can alter this in 2012 through our constitutional right of voting, as per Article 1, section 2 of the Constitution. Search your heart, but above all search the documents and writings that this country was built on, including The Bible, the most quoted source of or founding fathers, 34 percent in the political writings of the Founding Era. Larry J Overfield SebringPay attention and buy AmericanEditor: Hurrah! Somebody is finally waking up. I'm sure that the powers that be (the purchasing agents at Walmart) haven't seen my notes to the paper but somebody has wakened their buying habits and they are now selling American flags that are made in America. We just replaced the flags in our front yard with new ones from Walmart and they are proudly marked with new ones from Walmart and they are proudly marked made in USA, Camden, N.J. Bravo for you Walmart. Now expand your purchasing of electronics, auto supplies and clothing to American made products and you will decreased the money going into these foreign countries'treasuries to fatten their war chests to buy bullets and bombs to kill our grandkids or their kids. Pay attention to what you buy. If enough people start paying attention to buy American slogans, our movement will take hold. Mention it to your friends and get the word moving. You will be surprised what word of mouth advertising can do. Woodie Jackson Sebring BouquetsStaff shows great, honest serviceEditor: Last Friday night we had dinner at Duffers. I received a call from the manager about 10 that night that they had found my purse. Believe it or not I had not even missed it. I don't carry a purse too often so just got up from the table and left. The manager said he would put it in the safe for the night and I could come at 10 Saturday morning to get it. I just want to thank the Duffers staff. Not only did they safeguard my purse, the service earlier was great and the food excellent.. Melicent Schrader SebringSouthern Lifestyle is wonderful placeEditor: Don't you think that it's about time we hear some happy, thankful news. So I hope everyone reads this. I was recently a patient at Florida Hospital in Lake Placid, where I received good care. And while I was gone, Southern Lifestyle did a good job of taking care of my 20-year-old dog. So profound thanks to all the wonderful people for your help. I would now like to tell you about a hoe-down party that we had at Southern Lifestyle on March 26. The entertainment was amazing. There were large groups of dancers. There were cloggers, whipps and critters, square dancers. Lunch was outstanding provided by Chef Robin and his wonderful staff. Then followed music by Uptown Country, which brought rhythm that we thought we had forgotten. So for all of those reasons, there are not enough "Thank Yous" in the dictionary to thank Southern Lifestyle. Gerrie Matchus Lake Placid

The New Jersey native moved to the area specifically for the Center for Great Apes and hasn’t looked back. O’Neill has gained much experience at the sanctuary in Wauchula and is confident that his work experience will allow him to stand out and become a part of the film crew. “I do this every day. I interact with them and work with them. I have the experience that it would take to be a part of this,” said O’Neill. Currently, O’Neill’s video has just over 1,200 views. Of course, O’Neill hopes that his video pitch will have a huge boost in views during the final two weeks of the contest. The contest ends April 10 at 5 p.m. Visit http://www.youtube.com/w atch?v=StBBY4UG38Q or http://gg.tigweb.org/TIG/ DEFORESTACTION/51351/ to view O’Neill’s videos and help him gain the attention of the selection committee and become a part of the film. Continued from page 2A highway. At the grass verge the vehicles disengaged, but Finigan’s truck overturned, rolling seven times. He was thrown from the truck, which came to rest on top of him and he died on the scene. Michael Finigan was seriously injured and taken to Delray Medical Center. As of Thursday morning he was no longer listed as a patient. The driver of the Honda was also seriously injured and transported to Bethesda Memorial Hospital. As of Thursday morning she was no longer listed as a patient. Zena Finigan said the Florida Highway Patrol told her it appeared the young woman had been texting at the time of the accident. Aservice is being planned in West Palm Beach because so much of the family is there, Zena Finigan said, however, a smaller service will be held here for his friends sometime next week. Dates are still to be arranged as the medical examiner has not yet released Finigan’s body. He had three children, Marissa, 20, Nicholas, 18, and Dylan, 11. Continued from page 1A basically was the government. Stroup was responsible for all the work that today is done by a clerk, treasurer, tax collector and city manager. He collected coins from parking meters, dealt with the public, served the city council, and oversaw many construction projects — including the civic center, the building being named in his honor. Barbara Hines, who was one of a staff of three in 1969 and did accounting, remembers Stroup with affection. “He was a wonderful person and boss,” she said, “just a joy to work with.” Hines said the city was much smaller then. Stroup and three women made up the staff. City hall was located on the Historic Circle in what is now the Douglas McLean Building. Stroup’s office was tiny and tucked into a corner in the back. The city council met upstairs. By the time Stroup retired in 1990, the city had grown considerably, and day-to-day administration required a staff large enough to be divided into departments. It was Stroup who saw the city through the transition, and who was essential in creating the foundation upon which Sebring builds today. Mayor George Hensley invites all who knew Jack Stroup, and all those with a sense of history and gratitude, to turn out Wednesday evening for the dedication of the building. The ceremony begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Civic Center, which is at 355 West Center Ave. Continued from page 1A News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS City of Sebring Public Works maintenance worker John McManus pours paint into a tray Thursday morning to ready the Sebring Civic Center for an upcoming dedication ceremony in honor of Jack Stroup. Stroup to be honored Wednesday News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS Tyler Hobbs works off community service hours Thursday morning by applying a new coat of paint to the Sebring Civic Center. The building is being repainted and spruced up for the upcoming Jack Stroup Civic Center dedication ceremony. Local man killed when truck rolls Sebring man need video views to win place in ape film The most expensive item on the menu is a smoked salmon salad at $8.95. Ahot dog costs $3 and comes with steak fries. Tea, coffee and sodas are on the house with a meal. Davis takes pride in smoking her own meats. She is expanding her dessert list, which already includes blackberry cobbler. The orange ice cream and pie will arrive as soon as the electrician completes his work. Come fall, she will add unusual choices, like vinegar pie. She plans on adding a small market to provide fresh vegetables and some essentials, but was adamant in saying whatever was added would be in keeping with the ambiance of the dinning room. When she left the state park Davis wasn’t sure she would stay in the area, but “everything has taken off so well and the community has been so supportive and generous,” she looks forward to serving Highlands County for some time to come. Hammock Family Restaurant is open from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 4:30 on Sunday. It is at 222 Golf hammock Drive. The telephone number is 3820404.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSebring southpaw Aaron H art didn't start out exactly s harp, allowing the first batt er of the game to reach on h is own error and promptly p lunking the next hitter. But he quickly settled in a nd mowed through the R idge batting order in the B lue Streaks 6-0 win T uesday night at Firemen's F ield. The Boys in Blue would t hen get the only run they r eally needed in their half of t he first, with Seth Abeln d rawing a lead-off walk, stealing second, getting to third when Evan Lewis reached on an error and coming home on Jesse Baker's sacrif ice fly. Of course, Sebring would a dd to the early lead, as u nnecessary as those extra r uns would turn out to be. One Ridge batter reached o n an error in the second, but H art retired the other three w ith no harm done. Johnny Knight provided t he next two insurance runs, b lasting a home run one pitch a fter Nate Greene had singled t o left in the bottom of the s econd. Hart then cruised through a o ne, two, three third and f ourth before giving up the l one Ridge hit of the game in t he top of the fifth. That came with one out a nd was quickly diminished w hen Hart struck out the next b atter and retired the side on a ground-out to first. Gunnar Westergom then tallied a Blue Streak run when, after getting hit by a pitch with two out in the bottom of the fifth, he made it to third on an Abeln single and raced to the plate on a passed ball. Two Bolts reached in the sixth, on an error and walk, but Hart again responded with a strike out to end any thought of a further threat and the Streaks would finish the scoring with two in their half of the inning. Lewis lashed a lead-off double and moved to third on Baker's bunt. Corbin Hoffner then reached on an error, allowing Lewis to come in, with Steven Dunn then coming in to pinch-run. Dunn then promptly stole second and advanced to third on Greene's ground-out. Knight then walked and Sebring pulled off a double steal, bringing Dunn in with the sixth and final run of the night. Ridge then went down in order in the seventh on two ground outs and a strike out, Hart's ninth of the game. Further showing Hart's dominance, he threw just 89 pitches in seven innings, 64 for strikes, with 16 of the 25 Ridge batters seeing a firstpitch strike to quickly fall behind in the count. Now 15-3 on the season, 5-2 in district play, Sebring was to face a tough non-district game Thursday night with a visit from the 11-4 Yellow Jackets of Bartow. See Sunday's News-Sun for a recap of the contest. SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, April 1, 2011 Page 3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Great defensive plays, like this diving catch by Brody Carr, couldn't stave off two losses for the Green Dragons Tuesday in the Lake Placid Spring Break Classic. News-Sun photo by KIM GAUGER Aaron Hart may have stopped Ridge on the mound, but Johnny Knight popped them at the plate with this second-inning, two-run homer in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Bolts. Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Yates Insurance (17-7) defeated Central Security (9-15) on Wednesday in a comefrom-behind game to solidify their hold on first place and win the Lake Placid Senior Softball championship. "This win typifies the spirit of our team," boasted Manager Dusty Hensley."We never quit, and we are never out of a game.We pull for each other, and the results speak for our resolve." Yates trailed by ten runs in the fourth inning, but rallied behind the Four Hit Club of Victor Rodriguez, Ray Hensley, and Harold Welbaum.Bob Fox had five hits for Yates. Barry Hurlbut homered, Jim Morgan had two doubles and Dusty Hensley had two triples. For Central, Jim Louzan homered and Chuck O'Hara, back from a hand injury, had three hits. In other action, Schooni's (11-13) romped over Lockhart Service Center (9-15) 26-8 for their third win in the last four games. Bob Poulin held the hard-hitting Lockharts to single-digit runs, something few teams have accomplished this year. Poulin helped his own cause with three over-thefence and, with all apologies to Bob Seger, againstthe-wind home runs. Bob Roth (double), Gary Steeves (two doubles, home run), John Buja (triple), Don Ward (two doubles), and Ed Engler (two doubles) had four hits in the winning effor t. Jeff Stanley (doubl e) and Manager Darre ll Richards had three hi ts each. For Lockhart, Da ve Reed had four hits whi le Billy Todd and Dor an Quigg had three hits eac h. Lake Placid Marine (1 410), the league runner-u p, squeaked past Semino le Tire (12-12) 12-11. For the Mariners, t he Three Hit Club includ ed Jim Hensley, Larry Lan e, Howard Carney and Glen n Wersch. For Seminole Tire, Ky le Saunders (two double s) had four hits. Charlie Quinn (doubl e) and Tom Walsh had thr ee hits each. After the games, t he league had its annual ba nquet at the Lake Ju ne Ballfield.

Yates Insurance takes Lake Placid Senior League Streaks coast with Hart one-hitter Sebring6Ridge0 By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Monday's rains washed away the bulk of the Lake Placid Spring Break Classic, reducing it to just Tuesday's doubleheader for the Green Dragons. And there are any number of maladies that could help explain the Dragon doldrums of late a continued hangover from the climactic win over Sebring, Spring Break-itis, or simply a banged up pitching staff and sporadic offense. Or it may have been a combination of all of that as the Green Dragons dropped the afternoon game to LaBelle, 7-4, before also falling in a fall-from-ahead, 8-5 loss to Clewiston. "It was in the Sebring game that our pitching started to get nicked up some," head coach Dan Coomes said. "And when the pitching is hurt, the defense falls down a bit and it's a domino effect." That was evident in the opener as Colby Delaney, rife with a laundry list of nagging injuries, struggled with his command against the Cowboys. He started off stron g enough, cruising through t he first and ending it with a knee-buckling, third-stri ke curve. But his usually overpowe ring stuff wasn't in ev idence in the second as three straight hit s, including a doub le down the right-fie ld line, and a fielder 's choice plated tw o runs. Asingle in the thi rd and a wild pitch that allow ed the runner to reach third, w as followed by a sacrifice fly to make it a 3-0 edge f or LaBelle.

This is some kinda Final F our, huh? After two weeks of games e ven the most astute prognost icators couldn't have pred icted, we're finally at a F inal Four unlike any other. After all those brackets a round the country hit the s hredder, Kentucky and C onnecticut will play in the b lue blood bracket, while B utler and VCU face off in t he up-and-comers division. Winners get a chance at the really big stage at really big Reliant Stadium. Whatever happens, it's sure to go down as one of the more memorable NCAA tournaments in history. Heck, it already has been. So, to get you geared up, we've pulled together a little something that's part history lesson, part rundown of this year's teams and, hopefully, an entertaining look at this are-these-really-the-teams foursome. THE UNDERDOGS In honor of underdogs Butler and VCU getting to the Final Four, we'd thought it'd be interesting to look back at some of the all-time upset teams in NCAAtournament history: North Carolina State, 1983. Lorenzo Charles dunking, Jim Valvano running, Pack beats Phi Slamma Jamma. Doesn't get much better than that. Indiana State, 1979. So what if Magic and Michigan State took down the Sycamores? What Larry Bird and his batch of underlings did was incredible stuff. George Mason, 2006. The trendsetter for the current mid-major runs. The Patriots took down big boys Michigan State, North Carolina and No. 1 overall seed UConn to get to the Final Four. Butler, 2010. The Bulldogs set their own standard just last year, coming within a nearly-banked-in halfcourt shot by Gordon Hayward of becoming the ultimate Cinderella against Duke. Villanova, 1985. First year of the 64-team field and the Wildcats made it a memorable one, becoming the highest seed to win a national championship as a No. 8. Louisiana State, 1986. First No. 11 seed to reach the Final Four. NUMBERS 33-5-11 Age in years, months and days of Butler's Brad Stevens, making him the second-youngest coach to reach the Final Four since 1972 (Bob Knight, 32-4-29).

Panther Volleyball Camps second and third in their half of the third, but couldn't capitalize. Heath Harris came on in relief in the fourth and set the side down in order and the Dragons seemed to spark in the bottom half. Kyle Barber doubled with one out and one out later, Nevada Weaver legged out a bunt to put runners on the corners. Dylan Weber-Callahan then knocked one in with a single to left and Weaver came in when Brandon Wells beat out an infield single to cut the margin to 3-2. Weber-Callahan then came on to pitch and kept the margin manageable through the next two innings. The offense then tied it in the sixth, with Weaver coming in on the front end of a double steal, but it all fell apart in the seventh. Asingle lead it off for the Cowboys and one out later was followed by a hit by pitch and bunt single to load the bases. With the infield pulled in, a single up the middle plated two, and despite a diving catch by Brody Carr of a fly to right, another came in on the sacrifice fly. An RBI single followed to push the lead to 7-3. The Dragons mounted a slight rally in the last half of the seventh, scoring on a Barber bloop to right, but the next two were retired to end the contest. Clayton Mason got the nod on the mound in the second game against the Tigers of Clewiston and was effective early on as his team staked him to a seemingly big lead with a five-run third. But the Tigers started clawing back and the bullpen and defense couldn't maintain as three scored in the fourth, three more in the fifth and two in the sixth narrowed the gap, took the lead and sealed the come-from-behind win. "There was a bit of Spring Break fever, it happens every year," Coomes said. "But it's really the injuries that are hurting us. We'll get there. It will be ugly for another week or so, but it will start getting better." The team hopes the doldrums don't continue much longer as two district games come up next week with a trip to Fort Meade Tuesday and a home date with Avon Park Friday. Continued from 1B LP looks to get over injury bug News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Ricky Miller fires off-balance to first to record an out, but the Dragons couldn't pull out a win Tuesday. 3 Number of No. 11 s eeds to reach the Final Four: L SU in 1986, George Mason i n 2006, VCU this year. 5 NCAAtournament g ames won by VCU, most e ver to reach the Final Four. 14 Final Four appeara nces by Kentucky, eight m ore than the other three t eams combined. 19 Games decided by t hree points or fewer in this y ear's NCAAtournament, t ied for second behind the 24 i n 1990 for most since the f ield expanded to 64 teams. 26 Combined seeds of C onnecticut (three), K entucky (four), Butler ( eight) and VCU (11), highe st in Final Four history. The p revious high was 22 in 2 000. 40 Games played by V CU and Connecticut (once t hey play Saturday), matchi ng the modern-day (since 1 948) record, set seven previo us times. ONE-MAN SHOWS UConn's Kemba Walker h as put on a virtuoso perf ormance, not just in the N CAAtournament, but also i n the Big East tournament. H e may be a slender 6 feet 1, but he has carried the Huskies through nine straight elimination games. In honor of his play, here are a few other impressive one-man shows through the years: Stephen Curry, Davidson, 2008. The king of mid-major mayhem. Danny Manning, Kansas, 1988. The Jayhawks were known as Danny and the Miracles, but they might be considered The Untouchables when it comes to one leading the many in NCAAtournament history. Larry Bird, Indiana State, 1979. Larry Legend could have led Moe and Curly to the title game the way he was playing. Bill Bradley, Princeton, 1965. Led the unheralded Tigers to the Final Four, set an NCAAtournament record with 58 points against Wichita State in the thirdplace game. Bill Walton, UCLA, 1973. Big Red had some help but was as dominating as perhaps anyone in NCAAtournament history, capping it with 44 points in the title game. Jerry West, West Virginia, 1959. He set an NCAAtournament record while averaging 32 points and took the noname Mountaineers into the title game against California. Lew Alcindor, UCLA, 1967. The man who would later become Kareem helped the Bruins set a tournament record for average margin of victory on their way to 10 straight Final Four wins. Bill Russell, San Francisco, 1956. Twenty-six points, 27 rebounds in the title game alone. Austin Carr, Notre Dame. 1970. Just three games, but went for 61, 52 and 45. Nice. DID YOU KNOW? Butler is the first Division I school from Indiana to reach consecutive Final Fours. Five-time national champion Indiana, Purdue and Notre Dame had never done it. Kentucky coach John Calipari joins Rick Pitino as the only coaches to lead three different schools to the Final Four.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK —Nursing students at South Florida Community College (SFCC) recently participated in an American Red Cross Sheltering and Disaster Health for Nursing Students workshop preparing students to volunteer with the local Red Cross chapter in the event of a local disaster. “With their strong commitment to community service, our nursing students want to be ready to respond should disaster strike close to home,” said Dr. Michelle Heston, director of Nursing Education. “This workshop will prepare them to volunteer in Red Cross disaster settings.” In the blink of an eye a flood, fire, hurricane, tornado or other natural or manmade disaster can leave people with nothing but the clothes on their backs. That’s why every region needs a plan to respond to local disasters, and trained people ready to staff relief operations. Nursing students, under the direct supervision of Red Cross nurses, are an important part of that response. SFCC is one of 12 U.S. nursing schools piloting the workshop that introduces nursing students to the role of a Red Cross Disaster Health Services volunteer, prepares nursing students to assess the needs of disaster clients and provide needed assistance, provides strategies for working with vulnerable populations and more. The course is part of the American Red Cross National Student Nurse Program. Disaster Preparedness is a critical component of the professional development of nursing students. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) requires emergency preparedness/disaster management content in all accredited baccalaureate nursing programs. Sheltering and Disaster Health for Nursing Students meets AACN requirements. The American Red Cross shelters, feeds, and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nations blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization, not a government agency, and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Unfortunately, every year millions of Americans face the reality of diagnosis and living with this disease. After the initial emotions are faced, then comes the challenge of choosing the best treatment and maintaining the highest level of health possible in the face of cancer. So what can one do to stay healthy and strong, and to build the best possible defenses to beat this disease? Well, you could do what Billy Bynum did when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2005. “I packed-up my things and moved from Las Vegas to Florida,” says Bynum. “After a lot of research and going through several doctors and hospitals, I knew I had to make the move.” The reason for this move was to be treated by Frank Franzese, M.D., oncologist at WellSpring Oncology. “I knew Dr. Franzese’s background and I felt comfortable with the idea of being treated by him. So I made the move while the cancer was still in its early stages, because I knew that would be the best time to beat it.” While such measures may seem extreme to some, to Bynum it made perfect sense for his own well-being, and to remain as healthy as he could. However, if a crosscountry move isn’t for you, there are many alternatives cancer patients can do to stay healthier during this difficult time. Bynum shares some of his personal strategies while his doctor gives advice to those who, like Bynum, are living with cancer.Eat well to live well“Good nutrition is important for everyone,” says Franzese. “However, for those in the midst of chemotherapy or radiation, getting the vitamins and minerals needed in order to stay strong is more important than ever.” And while the side effects of treatment may make eating the farthest thing from your mind, maintaining your basic calorie needs is important for your overall health. When it comes to keeping your body strong and fighting the fatigue that can come with cancer treatment, protein can be your greatest ally. Not only will it aid in boosting your energy, but it will also help rebuild damaged tissue and protect against unwanted weight loss. Natural food sources such as chicken, fish, dairy and nuts are the best way to add protein to your diet. Also, instead of three big meals per day, try to eat five or six smaller ones to maintain your optimal strength. It’s also vital to stay hydrated. According to the American Cancer Society, many issues often associated with cancer and treatment — such as weakness and nausea — may actually be a result of dehydration. So make sure to drink at least eight cups of fluid per day, more if you are experiencing side effects like vomiting or diarrhea. These fluids include anything that your body can handle, from water to broth. However, remember that each patient is unique, so talk to your doctor about your own personal nutrition needs. For Bynum, eating well and changing his diet wasn’t only about eating better foods, it was also a need to lose weight for both his battle against cancer and a recommendation from his cardiologist. “I became a huge fan of fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods,” Bynum says. “Not only did I lose 50 pounds, I also gained more energy that has helped me in my journey to beat this disease.”Be activeFor those going through cancer treatment, exercise can have a huge effect on boosting energy and creating an overall better sense of well-being. Physical activity offers many benefits to those living with cancer. It lessens fatigue, creates a better body image, improves fitness and strength and results in a better quality of life. It can also lessen the anxiety, nausea and depression that may result from your journey with the disease. So if you can, try to exercise every day. Even 15 to 30 minutes of moderate physical activity can have a positive effect. Certain activities, such as walking, swimming and low-impact aerobics, are generally safe and effective. “Just remember to start slowly and listen to your body,” says Franzese. But while it’s important to avoid inactivity, remember that much like nutrition, exercise is not a one-size-fits-all activity. Each patient may need a different exercise regimen depending upon their current level of activity, stage of treatment and type of cancer diagnosis. So ask your doctor if the two of you can design an exercise routine that will fit your personal needs. Rest and de-stressExercise is important, but equally essential is finding time to rest and relax. Taking time for yourself is vital in order to prevent becoming overly fatigued. Whether you simply spend some quiet time alone or retreat to take a nap, making time for yourself will alleviate some of your fatigue. Ways to get the rest you need include getting at least eight hours of sleep per night, taking short naps (less than one hour) throughout the day and relaxing while reading or listening to music. If you have trouble sleeping because of your treatment, talk to your doctor about this side effect and how he or she can help. If stress is stressing you out, try a few of the following to help manage it: — Be realistic about your expectations of yourself. Cut back on your to-do list if you feel it may be too much to handle. Only focus on the most important things and save the rest for future days. Allowing yourself to complete even just a few things on your list can give you a great sense of accomplishment and reduce your stress. — Practice relaxation techniques that you find effective in reducing your stress, such as deep breathing or light exercise. —Consider attending support groups. Meeting other people living with cancer and understanding how they cope gives you a chance to see how others manage the stress associated with the disease.Take care of youRegardless of which steps you take to stay healthy while living with cancer, make sure to take care of yourself. Staying healthy despite the disease can make a big difference in both your physical and emotional ability to battle the disease. Advice on staying healthy while living with cancer By ESTHER HARRIS Special to the News-SunYou’ve made your decision: although you’re eligible to collect Social Security payments, you’re going to keep working and delay receiving your retirement benefits. But don’t forget abou t Medicare. Even if you decide to wait until after you are age 65 to apply for retiremen t benefits, most people should apply for Medicare coverage at age 65. I f you’d like to begin you r Medicare coverage, you should apply within fou r months of reaching age 65. There’s a fast, convenient, and simple way to apply online for Medicare in as little as 10 minutes, even if you’re not ready to receive retirement benefits. Just visit www.socialsecurity.gov/medicareonly. At the website, you’ll find more than just the online Medicare application. You’ll also find information about Medicare, and have the opportunity to watch a short, fun video reuniting the cast of The Patty Duke Show to tell you about the ease and convenience of filing fo r Medicare online. It’s important to note that people who already receive Social Security retirement or disability benefits do not need to apply for Medicare; they will be automatically enrolled. There is no additional charge for Medicare hospital insurance (Part A) since you already paid for it by working and paying Medicare tax. But there is a monthly premium fo r medical insurance (Part B). If you already have othe r health insurance when you become eligible fo r Medicare, you should consider whether you want to apply for the insurance. You may want to consul t with an insurance specialist. To learn more, read ou r online publication, Medicare, a t www.socialsecurity.gov/pu bs/10043.html. Esther Harris is the Social Security District Manager in Sebring. Remember Medicare even when you're not retired SFCC nursing students receive disaster response training Family FeaturesMany Americans follow a gluten free diet in their daily lives. In fact, retail sales for gluten free products nearly tripled from 2004 to 2009 reaching almost $1.7 billion. That number is estimated to top $2.6 billion in sales by the year 2012, according to Packaged Facts. “Families are looking for wholesome, nutritious solutions that are gluten free and convenient but still taste great,” said Keri Glassman, registered dietitian and author. “Gluten free foods can fit into a busy lifestyle, without making mealtime sacrifices. Chex cereal is one of my top picks, and I recommend it as a good breakfast choice to many of my clients with gluten restrictions.” Glassman noted that Wheat Chex and Multibran Chex are not gluten free and advises to always check package labeling and ingredient panels to confirm whether a product is gluten free. From breakfast staple to midday snack, or used in a gluten free recipe, Chex is a versatile pick for families on the go. Glassman and Chex offer healthy tips for anyone following a gluten free diet: —Start the day right: Eating breakfast lays a good foundation for the day. Anutritious breakfast should contain whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean protein such as egg whites or peanut butter, and a serving of fruit. Chex cereals offer at least 8 grams of whole grain in every serving and pair perfectly with fruit such as bananas and blueberries, not to mention milk. — Stock up: Keep the kitchen stocked with delicious options that are naturally gluten free, such as fruits, vegetables, cheese and most yogurts. —Simple snacking: Nutrient-rich snacks can be part of a complete and healthy diet while helping to keep cravings at bay. Keep single servings of raw or dry-roasted nuts and crunchy gluten free cereal in your bag for an on-the-go option. —Keep a food journal: Glassman recommends keeping a food journal to track meals and snacks throughout the day to ensure you’re meeting your daily nutritional needs, including recommended servings of grains, fruits, vegetables and protein. Jot down what works well and what doesn’t so you have a point of reference. —Recipe round-up: Mix up your mealtime by testing delicious gluten free recipes the whole family will appreciate.

Passover receives its name from the last plague inflicted upon the Egyptians; the killing of the first born. The Israelites were instructed to mark their doors with the blood of a spring lamb so that the angel of the Lord would pass over their homes. While Passover is remembered mainly for unleavened bread, Matzo, more importantly, it commemorates freedom from slavery and the beginning of people hood for the Jews. This mass of wanderers shrugged off slavery and ultimately elected to bind themselves to an invisible, single Deity. Afour-course meal including choice of brisket or chicken, gefilte fish, matzo ball soup and all the trimmings will be served.

Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort have developed a tremendous evangelism technique called The Way of the Master. You may get more information from their Web site at livingwaters.com. What makes it so good is that it targets the conscience of an individual rather than just the intellect. Christ used this method by using the law to reveal to sinners their inadequacy to justify themselves before a holy God. Until a person realizes they are lost in the darkness of sin, they will not see the need of a Saviour who loves and died for them. Aseries of questions will reveal if you are good enough to go to heaven. "If you died right now, are you absolutely sure you would go to heaven?" I have asked this question many times receiving a number of different answers. Some say they hope so, others honestly say no. To those who would respond in the affirmative, I will say, "What are you depending on to get you there?" Probably 8 out of 10 people will proceed to tell me about all the good things they have done, their church attendance, and even their baptismal experience. This is a good time to say, "So would you consider yourself to be a good person?" (Now we are getting to the heart of the issue.) Most people feel as though they are a good person. But how good do you have to be to go to heaven? This is where the next series of questions come. "Let us see how you measure up according to God's moral standard the Ten Commandments. Have you ever told a lie?" Of course, we all have told lies before. "Then what does that mean you are?" Aliar. "Have you ever taken something that did not belong to you?" Why sure, who hasn't? Then that would make you " That makes me a thief. "Hav e you ever taken th e name of God in vain?" Yes. "Tha t would mean you are a blasphemer ." By now the pe rson is not so con fident. I may proceed to ask, "Have yo u ever lusted after someone who was not your spouse ?" Sheepishly, they may repl y "Yeah." Jesus said, "If a man looks upon a woman to lust after her, he has committed adultery alread y in his heart." At this point I might say, "So by your own admission, you are a liar, thief, blasphemer, and adulterer at heart. If you were judged in God's courtroom, would you be innocent or guilty?" An honest reply will be "guilty". Then I ask, "Do es this concern you?" At this point, I will rea lize if God is convicting them of their sin. If they don't care about how thei r sinful lifestyle offends God, then they are not ready for the good news o f salvation. But if they are indeed bothered and reali ze they are headed to hell, then they may hear how Christ loved them and die d to forgive them. Only a person in bondage can ever receive freedom. The truth is, "there is none righteous, no, not one. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:10,23) Nobody is good enough to get to heaven. That is why Jesus came to earth, perfectly fulfilled the law and died on the cross for our sin. He arose providin g eternal life to all who believe on Him. Romans 10:13 says, "For whosoev er shall call upon the nam e of the Lord, shall be saved." Luke Knickerbocker is the pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Lake Placid, 216 E.

Hi, my name is Pastor Reinhold B uxbaum from "The Way", and I like t o have a word with you. Let's just look at one country, Syria. L ast Friday the protest against P resident Bashar Assad spread to all m ajor cities of Syria, including D amascus. The majority of the populat ion is Sunni (74 percent). The leaders hip including the president are from a nother Moslem sect, called Allawite ( 15 percent of all Syrian Moslems). Not o nly do the Syrian Sunni Moslems w ant more power and say in the gove rnment, but they also have not forgott en the massacre of the president's f ather, Hafez Assad, in February of 1 982. It happened in the city of Hama w hen the "brotherhood uprising" was c rushed by Hafez Assad's military m ight and between 7,000 and 40,000 S unnis were killed. The bigger picture, however, is S yria's close relationship with Iran. S yria is supplied by Iran with very s ophisticated weapons which are to be used against Israel. The leadership of Iran hates Israel more then ever, especially since Israel introduced the "stuxnet" computer bug into the Iranian atomic power plant. They want Israel wiped off the map. And guess where Iran build their central war commando against Israel to co-ordinate the Arab coalition? Right in Damascus! So here is the danger: If Iran can motivate Syria and many of the other Arab Moslem nations to re-direct their anger against their common enemy, Israel, we could see a major Middle East war in the not so distant future. So where does Bible prophecy come in? Such a war is predicted in Psalm 83, and it mentions the names of the countries. Lebanon (with Hezbollah), Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Gaza (with Hamas) and other Arab nations. What is their cry? "Come, they say, let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more. With one mind they plot together, they form an alliance against you" ( Psalm 83:4-5 NIV) The newspaper tells us that the lineup is in progress. The Bible shows us how this conflict will end. "Make them like tumbleweed, O my God, like chaff before the wind. As fire consumes the forest or a flame sets the mountains ablaze let them perish in disgrace" (Psalm 83:13,14,17) Already new attacks on Israel are happening. AJewish family brutally murdered in the West bank, 52 rockets shot in one night from Gaza, a bomb exploding in a Jerusalem bus. Yes, the stage is set for the second coming of Jesus! Reinhold Buxbaum is pastor of The Way Church, he teaches "An Evening in Prophecy" at Homer's Restaurant at 6:30 p.m. the first Monday of each month.

Continued from page 8B Church News Associated PressRALEIGH, N.C. What does hell mean to you? Is it an endless nightmare for sinners and unsaved souls, as mainstream Christianity has taught for centuries? Or is hell here on Earth, in the distractions, addictions and emptiness of daily life? Those ideas are receiving fresh scrutiny from some believers after a prominent evangelical pastor questioned the traditional idea of hell in his new book, "Love Wins." Even before Rob Bell's book was published this month, religious leaders and their followers were branding it heresy, hailing it as a breakthrough or landing somewhere in the middle. Thousands have weighed in on Twitter, Facebook, blogs or outside their places of worship. Bell "better go back and read his Bible again! He's all messed up!" wrote Ruth Ward of New Albany, Ind., on Facebook. "Satan is having a field day." James Turner, a 49-year-old Chicago laborer, says his concept of hell hasn't changed much since he attended church as a boy. For him, hell "is a place where if you don't accept Jesus, or you reject Jesus, it is a place of torment." Hell is also for those "who are ruthless and brutally hurt people," he said. "I hope that smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee ain't going to get me down there," he said, puffing on a cigarette Sunday outside the Chicagoland Community Church on the city's North Side, where he's attended services for about 10 years. For some readers, the book has been a breath of fresh air and a chance to discuss ideas that have long been taboo in evangelical circles. When Chad Holtz posted a Facebook message supporting Bell's position, he was dismissed from his job as pastor at a United Methodist church in Henderson, N.C. Holtz's posts about the experience on his website drew a flood of responses, including from people who said they were afraid to tell relatives that they did not believe in the notion that God punishes sinners forever in hell. Carol Buikema, who attends Chicago's Wellington Avenue United Church of Christ, said she recently read a fellow congregant's Facebook post about Bell's book, and it prompted her to question her own beliefs about hell. "It does pose more questions than answers for me," Buikema, 64, said Sunday. Believing in Jesus is a basic tenet of Christianity and "if you don't believe in Jesus, you won't go to heaven," she said. "The more I live life, I don't know if I totally believe that. I've always believed that God is not a God of vengeance. He is a loving Go d. How would you equate the idea of a lovin g God with going to hell?" Bell's message is reaching a wide aud ience: On Friday, "Love Wins" was the fourt hbest-selling book overall on Amazon.com and the best-selling book in the religion cat egory. The Rev. Erik DiVietro, pastor of Bedfo rd Road Baptist Church in Merrimack, N.H ., said he felt the need to respond to Bell's boo k after being repeatedly asked about it b y friends, former students and church member s. He disagrees with Bell on several points, b ut said Christians miss out if they don't try to engage the ideas. "Christianity is a conversation," he sai d. "So as we're journeying with these ancie nt writings, we need to be asking question s. These are good questions, and they need to be part of the dialogue." Brandy Fenderson, a 34-year-old teach er and member of St. Ann's Episcopal Church in Nashville, Tenn., said Bell's book remind ed her of the importance of thinking critical ly about one's faith. "I remember thinking I do believe there's a balance between intellect and faith. ... I' ve argued (with friends) that intellect is divin e, given to us by God, and we're not suppos ed to shut it down." What is hell? Book stirs debate about afterlife

Now, he’s followed that up with “Super.” But the movie that really comes to mind while watching it is the brilliant “Shaun of the Dead,” which began life as a funny, loving homage to zombie flicks, then slowly, steadily became a really suspenseful, and really violent, zombie flick in its own right. “Super” starts out toying with the idea of the self-made vigilante superhero, someone with no special powers who nonetheless feels the need to fight crime. But by the end, Gunn’s film has morphed into an intense and bloody exploration of a man on a quest, one who’s hell-bent on vengeance — with a perky pixie by his side. “The Office” star Rainn Wilson plays it deadly straight as Frank, a sad-sack short-order cook whose wife, a waitress and former junkie named Sarah (Liv Tyler), is using again. In no time, she’s also fallen into the creepy, skinny arms of Jacques (Kevin Bacon), an amusingly evil drug dealer. All this is more than one mild-mannered guy can stand, so the doughy Frank — with a little push from the hand of God and some programming on the All-Jesus Network — reinvents himself as a crime fighter. He goes by the name The Crimson Bolt, complete with a makeshift red costume, mask and weapon: a wrench, which he uses to unceremoniously bash people’s heads in. “Super” has a cheeky, geeky sense of humor when it comes to Frank’s awkward attacks: It’s sweet and earnest, but also raunchy and fearless. Wilson finds the comedy in his character’s sadness — he’s funny precisely because he isn’t funny — which makes you feel for him, too. He’s got more than a little Travis Bickle in him, but he’s also just pathetic. But Ellen Page pretty much steals the show as Libby, the comic book store clerk who figures out who he is and insists on serving as his sidekick, even though she turns out to be not-so trusty. She reinvents herself as Boltie (after going through a series of possible nicknames and poses in a hilarious, breathless bit) and just goes gonzo. Page is a complete joy, albeit in a dangerously volatile way, and it’s so much fun to see the “Juno” star in such a different kind of role. She’s not the coolest girl in the room, she just doesn’t have all the answers or just the right, poignant zinger. She’s a giddy goofball, and unabashedly so. But she’s such a cute little thing, you can’t help but adore her, even as she’s reveling in the carnage she’s created. Gunn himself gets some laughs, appearing as the Devil in a couple of scenes alongside “Slither” star Nathan Fillion, who’s unrecognizable and delightfully subversive as The Holy Avenger, the superhero of a super-judgmental Christian television program. It may sound like “Super” is trying too hard to shock, trying too hard to be edgy or weird. But it has such a lowbudget charm, it’s pretty hard to resist. Besides, if you don’t, you risk incurring the wrath of The Crimson Bolt. And you don’t want that. DIVERSIONS DearReaders: It’s April 1, the day I get to share some of the occasional letters I receive from folks who are pulling my leg. Read on: Dear Abby: My wife of 23 years is threatening to divorce me on the grounds that I’m “unreasonable.” Is it unreasonable for me to attempt to keep my socks oriented to the proper feet? When I put my socks on the wrong feet, I run around in circles and become disoriented. I know women don’t have this problem because they wear pantyhose – so it’s impossible to put them on the wrong feet. I sewed a bit of red yarn on the tops of my right socks so I could keep them straight. My wife says I’m crazy, but I insist, “Right on right; left on left.” So tell me, Abby – must I run in stupid circles and endure moments of disorientation and embarrassment? Or should I forgo the red yarn and hang in there with my wife to preserve our marriage? – Disturbed Kentucky Man DearDisturbed Kentucky Man: And a happy April Fools’Day to you, too. The red yarn is preferable to the yarn you have spun for me. (It’s also preferable to running in circles like a decapitated chicken.) And you’re mistaken about women’s pantyhose. Ask any woman who has put hers on backward. DearAbby: I’m concerned about my youngest son, “Sammy.” From the moment he gets up each day until the time he retires at night, he spends almost the entire time playing in the sandbox in our backyard. My wife and I are alarmed by his bizarre behavior, and incidentally, so is his wife. What should we do? – Worried Dad in Georgia DearWorried Dad: Be sure to brush him off if he ever runs a marathon to prevent diaper rash. DearAbby: Lately I’ve been having some strange dreams. I cannot explain how I come up with this stuff. The other night I had a doozy: whips, chains, whistles, yo-yos, circus midgets, a duck, a Romanian peasant woman, and my grandmother riding by on a bicycle giving me the finger. Please advise. – California Dreamin’ DearCalifornia Dreamin’: What a coincidence! I had that very same dream last night. Your grandmother sure gets around. DearAbby: I hate bothering you because I know you’re busy, but I have been getting the runaround from my TVprovider. I have asked them repeatedly to send someone over to fix my set, but they keep saying it can be fixed by remote control. I’ve got a black screen and it just doesn’t work. Can you come over to fix it? – Missing Jerry Springe r in Pittsburgh DearMissing Jerry: I help people solve relationship problems, but the one you’re having with your TVset does not qualify. Sorry. DearAbby: I prefer to sleep facing in; my husband prefers to sleep facing out. My problem is when he’s gassy – which is often – it puts me “in the line of fire.” We’ve talked about how to deal with this problem, but haven’t been able to come up with a solution. Any suggestions? – Gas Taxed in Newark, Del. DearGas Taxed: Yes. Switch sides! Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

Man fears sock drawer mix-up will doom him to run in circles Dear Abby By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticDuncan Jones’first film, the mesmerizing, sci-fi character drama “Moon” from 2009, was a marvel of efficiency, tension and pacing. It signaled the arrival of an artist with an appreciation for the past but also with his own clear, unique voice, ready to leave a distinctive stamp on the culture. And it was the best movie of the year — according to this critic, at least. “Source Code” represents his evolution as a director, now that he has a bigger cast and more expensive toys to play with. It’s swifter, glossier, more ambitious. And for a long time, it’s a thrilling and challenging puzzle based on a clever idea — until it pushes its central gimmick and gets too greedy at the end, that is. It’ll make your brain hurt (in a good way) trying to determine whether it all makes sense — until it quite obviously and frustratingly doesn’t make sense anymore. It also aims for some emotional connections it doesn’t fully develop. Maybe we’re nitpicking needlessly, and should just let ourselves go with it. Still, it leaves you with the nagging sensation that this is a good film that could have been great, if only it had quit while it was ahead. Based on a script by Ben Ripley, “Source Code” keeps us as consistently confused and off-guard from the start as its main character, U.S. Army Capt. Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal). And, to be fair to you, it’ll be tough to describe what happens here without giving the aforementioned fun-of-the-puzzle away. But we’ll try. Adecorated soldier from the battle in Afghanistan, Colter wakes up one morning, disoriented, on a commuter train heading toward Chicago. Across from him is a sweet and beautiful woman (Michelle Monaghan) whom he’s never seen before, yet she’s talking to him with the familiarity of a friend. He takes a quick glance at himself in the bathroom mirror and is startled to discover he’s in the body of another man, one he doesn’t know. Within minutes, the train has blown up, killing everyone on board — but Colter suddenly finds himself still alive, strapped inside a crude metal pod, communicating by monitor with an Air Force captain (Vera Farmiga). She explains that he’s part of a special assignment called “Source Code,” designed to allow him to enter the body of another man for eight minutes. His task is to gain valuable information and hopefully prevent a later, larger terrorist attack. And so Colter must go back and relive the same eight minutes over and over again, gleaning more details each time. Yes, this will probably remind you of “Groundhog Day,” but this is also where “Source Code” is at its most zippy and compelling — and, strangely, at its most plausible. Gyllenhaal, who helped developed the character, makes Colter’s fear, anger and general discombobulation palpable, but “Source Code” also allows him some much-needed flashes of humor. The supporting cast is strong down the line, including Jeffrey Wright as the coldly driven brains of the operation, and even in the choice of actors on the train who only get a couple of lines, but have significance with each go-round. The score is a little insistent and intrusive, especially compared to the gorgeous and haunting score from “Moon,” and Jones could have made more of an impact at times with silence. But we should probably quit while we’re ahead, too, and let you discover the secrets of “Source Code” for yourself — and decide whether they actually add up. Source Code' dazzles until the end Summit Entertainment Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Colter Stevens in Source Code.'

When the victim turns on the faucet, they'll get soaked! Ha! (Just remember not to forget that you've done this or you'll blast yourself!)2.Glue a couple of realistic-looking fake quarters to your driveway or other non-public property. It works better with real quarters, but we hear that's illegal. Your call. Then sit back and watch your kids drive themselves batty trying to pick them up. You'll fall off your porch laughing.3.Stuff tissues or toilet paper into the toes of your family's favorite shoes, then watch them struggle to get them on in the morning. "Dang, Mom. Have your feet swollen that much?"4.After everyone's asleep, set all the clocks ahead one hour. Then wake everyone up (at the usual time) screaming about how they overslept, missed the bus, are going to be late for school or work, etc. As they're all scurrying about, frantic and worried, just lie back and laugh. You stinker. 5. Glue a pen cap on, then ask someone if they can get it off for you.6.Two days before April Fools'Day, start telling someone how badly you're going to get them on the big day. Then tell them again. And again. Tease them. Laugh at them. Tell them there's nothing they can do about it. When April Fools'Day finally arrives, just sit back and relax as their paranoia grows with each passing minute. Yep. You got 'em all right, and there wasn't anything they could do about it.7.If your kids eat apples for lunch, carefully core a thin deep hole in the fruit and retain the plug. Stuff several Gummi Worms deep inside, then replace the end of the plug to conceal your handiwork. If done right, the first-bite reaction is priceless!8.If your family eats cereal for breakfast, remove the plastic bags from the boxes and switch them up. When they go to pour Raisin Flakes, they'll get Cocoa Booms! And if you really want to be mean, replace the milk with a mixture of flour and ... Wait, that is too mean. If you use milk in a cardboard container, just drop some food coloring in it. Pink milk anyone?9.If you work in an office, leave a note on a manly co-worker's desk saying he has flowers to pick up at the front desk. Have someone who has a voice the target won't recognize leave a similar phone message. Then watch and laugh as he tries to convince the front desk to give him flowers that just aren't there.10.Buy a fake video security camera (available in joke shops and online for around $10). The camera looks real and even moves and turns on a red light when it detects motion. Install it in your bathroom, then have a party. The first time a person uses the restroom, have the rest of the guests gather round your TVand laugh loudly enough for the person in the restroom to overhear. When the person returns to the room, they'll see everyone watching a prerecorded video tape of the empty bathroom, thinking they were just being watched in there. Caution: Make sure your friends have a good sense of humor. Until the joke is revealed, this one can be embarrassing! James Fussell, McClatchy NewspapersAt the Web site www.museum ofhoaxes.com, the greatest April Fools jokes have been catalogued. It really is amazing what people are gullible enough to believe. Let us help you prepare to be suspicious by recounting a few of the great pranks of all time. In 1933, the Madison CapitalTimes reported that the Wisconsin Capitol had been destroyed by a number of mysterious explosions, attributed to "large quantities of gas, generated through many weeks of verbose debate in the Senate and Assembly chambers." Along with the story was a doctored picture showing the Capitol as it collapsed. The readers were fooled and shocked. In 1949, a New Zealand deejay for radio station 1ZB announced on the air that a milewide swarm of wasps was headed toward Auckland. He warned listeners to protect themselves by suggesting they wear their socks over their trousers when they went to work, and that they leave honey-smeared traps outside their doors. Hundreds of people took his advice. In 1957, the BBC news show "Panorama" announced that thanks to a mild winter and the demise of the harmful spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. The report included footage of Swiss peasants pulling strands of spaghetti down from trees. Large numbers of viewers were fooled, with many of them calling in to find out how they could grow their own spaghetti trees. In 1962, Sweden had only one TVchannel, which broadcast in black and white. The station's technical expert appeared on the news to announce a recently developed technology that would allow viewers to easily convert their existing sets to display color reception. All they had to do was pull a nylon stocking over the screen, and they would begin to see their favorite shows in color. Reportedly,hundreds of thousands of people tried the conversion process. In 1976, a British astronomer announced on BBC Radio 2 that at 9:47 a.m. an unusual astronomical event would take place that listeners could experience in their own homes. He said the planet Pluto would pass behind Jupiter, which would lessen the Earth's gravity and allow listeners to float in the air if they jumped at that exact moment. When the time arrived, BBC2 received hundreds of phone calls from people claiming to have felt the floating sensation. In 1982, the Connecticut Gazette and Connecticut Compass, a pair of weekly newspapers, announced they were being purchased by Tass, the official news agency of the Soviet Union. Their front pages stated this was "the first expansion of the Soviet media giant outside of the Iron Curtain." Readers were fooled, with one caller informing them that he had always suspected them of harboring communist tendencies. In 1993, a deejay at KGB-FM in San Diego announced that the space shuttle Discovery had been diverted from Edwards Air Force Base and soon would land at Montgomery Field, a small airport in a residential area. Thousands of commuters immediately headed to the landing site, which caused huge traffic jams that lasted for almost an hour. Police had to be called in to clear the traffic and tell people with cameras, camcorders and folding chairs to go home. Corporate types like to have a little fun, too. In 1996, Taco Bell announced that it had bought the Liberty Bell from the federal government so it could be renamed the Taco Liberty Bell. Hundreds of outraged citizens called the National Historic Park in Philadelphia to express their anger. And in 1998, Burger King published a full-page ad in USA Today announcing the introduction of a menu item a LeftHanded Whopper, uniquely designed with all the condiments rotated 180 degrees. Thousands of customers went to BK to request the new sandwich. Neil White, McClatchy Newspapers The BBC show "Panorama" fooled viewers with a story on spaghetti crops. Adoctored Madison CapitalTimes picture shows the Capitol's collapse. Here's the thing about reading the paper. If you do it, it gives you an advantage over those who don't. How can you best use this advantage to show non-readers what fools they be? We have a few ideas. Now let's be clear here. We're not telling you to play April Fools' Day jokes on non-readers. We're just saying, hey, these classic gags are going to be played on somebody. What you do with the following information is entirely up to you. MCTPHOTOS

Dr. Edward Schor, one of the studys authors, cites Floridas low employer-sponsored health insurance benefits, coupled with the recession and the weak job market, as one reason. The unemployment rate in Florida and Highlands County stands at 11 percent. We are seeing people who never had to come to us before. But theyve been laid off or had their hours shortened, cant afford insurance, and need specialized medical care, said Billie Hetherton, administrative assistant at the Highlands County Human Services Department, an agency which has limited funds to pay medical providers for specialty care. In 2009, the most recent year for which figures are available, close to 18 percent of Floridas population under 18 years of age and close to 27 percent of its parents 19-64 years of age were uninsured. Among low income individuals, the numbers are higher. Atotal of 28 percent of the States children ages 0-18 and 50 percent of parents ages 1964 with incomes at or below 199 percent of the Federal poverty level had no health State, county medically uninsured rates are high In 2009 ... 20% of Highlands Countys children were uninsured 36% of Highlands Countys adults were uninsured By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING County Commissioners made no decisions, but did state that they would look hard at funding the countys three chambers of commerce in the upcoming budget. According to County Administrator Rick Helms, the countys contributions to the chambers has decreased from $7,000 each in 1997 to $2,500 in 2010. We have to look very closely to what we have.

Her wild orange ice cream and wild orange pie were particular favorites. When she had to leave the park, Davis opened a new take-out restaurant on the corner of Kenilworth and Lakeshore drives called Bon Creek. Bon Creek is the name of a small stream that ran through her familys property near St. Petersburg, where she grew up. There she serves the same menu she had in the state park including the ice cream and pie hamburgers, Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, and barbecue. Six weeks ago, Davis said, Jason Laman bought the Golf Hammock restaurant and reached out to her to turn it into a dinning destination. Now known as the Hammock Family Restaurant, lunch and dinner are served Monday through Friday and breakfast, lunch and dinner on Sunday. The restaurant is closed on Saturdays.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comWAUCHULA It takes a special person to do the job that Sebring resident and the Center for Great Apes employee Pete ONeill does. ONeill has been an employee at the center for only eight months, but he has spent countless hours caring for, learning about and protecting one of the worlds most interesting creatures, the orangutan. When ONeill was presented with the chance to be a part of a project involving creating another sanctuary for his beloved animals, he jumped at it. ONeill is one of thousands of candidates to be a part of a feature documentary film. The film will address deforestation by documenting the conservation of rain forests as well as the creation of an ape sanctuary for orangutans. The film will be entitled Project Borneo 3D. Borneo is a large island located in the Pacific Ocean near Southeast Asia. The island is covered in rain forests that rival the ones found in South America. Candidates for Project Borneo 3D must create and upload a video pitch. The 90-second video is part of the selection process that allows the selection committee to choose based on the number of views each video has received. The project will allow volunteers to participate in the documentary for five months. Deforestation is a big problem there, just like it is in South America, ONeill said. The orangutans are the key species there. This sanctuary will be the largest one in the world. The competition is stiff but the payoff will be well worth the effort. The chosen entrants will be working with acclaimed scientist Dr. Willie Smits and Orangutan Outreach. Queensland production company and Virgo Productions are the creators of the film and will work in collaboration with National Geographic Entertainment.

Mark Foster stunned his wife, daughter and country with a surprise return from Afghanistan on the 20-yard-line of an NFL football stadium. During the Washington RedskinsTennessee Titans game on Nov. 20, 2010, millions watched a tearful family embrace, filling their television screens with the raw emotions of war. As the initial shock began to subside in the stands of Nashvilles LP Field, the 101st Airborne Division paratroopers spouse, Jodi, asked a dreaded question. When do you have to go back? Sgt. Foster, 38, hated having to tell his wife and youngest child that not long after Thanksgiving, hed be back in a war zone. My 12-year-old daughter, Kayla, put it best (rest and recuperation) kind of sucks when youre deployed, Mark told The Unknown Soldiers. You have to go back and miss your family all over again. Fosters feisty wife, who jokingly chastised her Army husband during our conversation for not doing enough laundry while he was home, wholeheartedly agreed. It was really hard, Jodi, 33, recalled. Its almost like they tease you with R&R they dangle him being home in front of you. The sergeant had already been through four combat tours in Iraq, but the last 12 weeks of his first deployment to Afghanistan, after returning from his surprise trip home, were among the most difficult of his life. It was probably the longest three months Ive ever spent, although theyre always longer after leave, Mark said. It was rough, it was cold and it snowed a lot. On March 10, Jodi and three anxious kids stood near the TennesseeKentucky border at Fort Campbell, waiting for the first glimpse of a returning hero and his brothers in arms. This time, the family would reunite on an Army airfield instead of a football field, but there was still a minor surprise in store for the soldiers wife. I didnt recognize him at first because he lost so much weight over there, Jodi admitted. The last few minutes waiting to get to hug him were tough, but its great having him home. As a career journalist who has never served in the military, I naively asked the soldier how he was enjoying his time off. The sergeant told me he went back to work at 5:30 a.m. the day after getting home. When we come back, there is a mandatory reintegration period, Mark explained. But its only The long way home See SOLIDER, page 3A POLICEBLOTTER By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK City Council voted 5-0 to lower garbage rates for Avon Park residents Monday. According to Interim City Manager Julian Deleon, resident have paid $20 per month for garbage collections since 2002, but Deleon told council that changes in the permitting for the local landfill will save the city $793,796. The changes in permitting at the landfill from a fullscale garbage collection site to just yard waste only is where the cost savings will come from, and the changes reduced the need for post closure costs to the landfill. Changing the permitting also reduced the time for post closure monitoring from 30 years to just 60 days. We only use the site for yard waste, and by changing the permit, we can drop the costs significantly and do away with the need for a certified operator out there. That is a lot of savings, Deleon said. According to Deleon, the savings can also be used to pay off $104,639 in debt on sanitation trucks. The council also voted to pay off that debt. The rate decrease may take up to three months to take effect, Deleon said, and will only apply to residential customers. The rate reduction will amount to about 10 percent less in fees and lower the monthly bill to $18.

insurance. Highlands County also fares badly. In 2009, the percentage of uninsured children was 20 percent and the percentage of uninsured adults, including parents and nondependent adults without children, was 36 percent. Among those with incomes at or below 200 percent of the Federal poverty level, 24 percent of children and 51 percent of adults were uninsured. But the recession is not the only reason why Florida has such a high uninsured population. According to Dr. Schor, another reason is Floridas limited access to public insurance programs. The federal government has set minimum levels at which states must provide insurance coverage for children, pregnant women, and parents in order to receive federal matching funds through Medicaid and the Childrens Health Insurance Program (CHIP), known in Florida as Florida KidCare. The levels are based on the Federal Poverty Levels (FPL) released annually. States determine how much above those levels they will provide coverage. Acomparative study of coverage in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia by the Kaiser Commission on Medicaid and the Uninsured indicates the limitations in Florida: While Florida provides coverage to children with family incomes up to 200 percent FPL, 25 states and the District of Columbia provide coverage at or above 250 percent, and New York provides coverage at 400 percent. While Florida provides coverage to pregnant women with family incomes up to 185 percent FPL, 17 states and the District of Columbia provide coverage at or above 200 percent and some at 300 percent. Even though parent eligibility for Medicaid remains low in all states, Floridas coverage is among the most limited. Florida caps eligibility at 20 percent FPLfor jobless parents and 59 percent FPLfor working parents. Florida, like most States, does not provide any coverage to adults who have no dependent children and are not disabled. But seven states do provide Medicaid or Medicaid-comparable coverage. Agencies that work with low-income, uninsured individuals and families have advocated for increasing the levels of public insurance coverage. The Florida Association of Healthy Start Coalitions has tried to get the level raised for pregnant women, but without success. Medicaid funds just arent available, said Debra Caruso, Highlands County Healthy Fund supervisor. Are there eligible children and parents who could be enrolled in Medicaid and Florida KidCare but arent? There probably are. Some might not know that theyre eligible; some might feel theres a stigma attached to being enrolled; and some with alien status might be afraid to sign up, even if theyre here legally, for fear of bad consequences, said Dr. Schor. When children and adults are uninsured, they are less likely to obtain preventive care and early treatment for medical conditions. That puts them at higher risk for serious health problems and chronic conditions, such as hypertension and diabetes. Because they dont receive regular care, they are more likely to use hospital emergency rooms for non-urgent care, even though more appropriate, less expensive services are available. good investment, said David Greenslade, the Avon Park chambers executive director. One of the important tasks that we do is to act as welcome centers for visitors to the county, Greenslade said. Our costs are going up, but our revenues are going down. All of our actions have a positive economic impact to our county, Eileen May, executive director of the Lake Placid chamber, said. The chambers welcome thousands of people into our county who have disposal income. Using events to bring visitors to our county that bring an economic impact to our county. The arguments wavered both ways on funding the chambers, and the public voiced their opposing opinions on the issue. Your investment last year into these chambers was less than 1 percent of your total economic development, and I would encourage you to continue to make this minimal investment into our community, said Ray Royce, a member of the Lake Placid chamber board of directors. Taxpayers also have no money. I know it is just $2,500, but they could raise that if they could just work harder. They could do what they are doing, but do it more effectively, local resident Kevin Shutt said pointing to social media and the Internet. I think it is morally wrong to take money from your citizens and give it to these private organizations, whether they are non-profit or for profit, Shutt said. I know that they can get the information from the Internet or Facebook. It is a lot different when people come in, said Lake Placid chamber volunteer Marlene Barger. The Internet is impersonal, nothing is important as the personal touch. We need to keep people coming in and purchasing and buying homes. I hope you continue to support the chambers. The chambers do a great job, but if you all want to join the chambers, write them a check. Dont spend taxpayer dollars on it, said local resident Mike Berry. Sebring resident Barry Foster asked the commission to move the money from the Tourist Development Council and give some of it to the chambers. You could parcel the TDC money out to them and have three locations to take in forms. You could slash the TDC budget in half and give them 10 times the funding you currently have, Foster said. Amistake was made in 2009 when the county budgeted $2,500 to each chamber and actually paid $3,500, Greenslade told commissioners. Commissioner Jack Richie asked why the $1,000 overage was not sent back to the county. When the budget was passed, our offices were never notified that the budgets were cut. We did not know anything was wrong until this year, Greenslade said. Stewart suggested that in the past she recommended that the funding be reduced from $2,500 to $1,500 this year to make up the difference, but the previous commission voted no to that motion. If for some reason you did not have the $7,500 and you were forced to cut, would you find that funding somewhere else? commissioner Don Elwell asked. We certainly wont close our doors, and we would continue to do the job the best we can, May said. www.newssun.comNews-SunlFriday, April 1, 2011Page 3A Continued from page 1A a few hours a day, and then you get to come home and spend time with your family. I asked the soldier how he is doing emotionally after his fifth overseas deployment in support of Americas post-9/11 missions. Foster told me that loud noises and large groups of people make him uncomfortable. Ill be honest the hardest part is going to work and still not having peace and quiet, Mark said. Its nice to just play a video game or watch a movie without having anyone, even the kids, running around. Thats the most overwhelming thing because Im just not used to it. Like so many military families around the nation, the Fosters are either dealing with being apart or moving around together. In the fall, they will transition from Fort Campbell to Fort Hood, a massive Army post about an hour from Austin, Texas. Its been an adjustment for all of us, Jodi said. You get into a routine, and then you have to change the routine. Sgt. Mark Foster, who struck me with his up-front, no-nonsense demeanor during our November and March conversations, said its critical for a nation fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq, and now Libya, to comprehend wars impact on hundreds of thousands of American families.

Floridas former attorney general, Bill McCollum, and present Attorney General Pam Bondi both favor overturning it in the courts. Governor Rick Scott is refusing to prepare for its implementation. Rep. Tom Rooney, who represents Highlands County, co-sponsored a 2009 bill introduced by Rep. Tom Price of Georgia. The badly misnamed bill is called the Empowering Patients First bill. It is probably close to what we would end up with if the Obama reform is thrown out. Rep. Price claimed that the Empowering Patients Act would insure all Americans without costing the taxpayers a penny. President Obama replied that it is impossible to insure 30 million Americans without cost. Prices claim seems to be dishonest. Subsidies for insurance companies are included, but taxes to pay for them are not. The Congressional Budget Office, CBO, found that the Republican bill would cost $100 billion a year more than the actual reform law. The Price bill is based on virtually forcing employees to enroll in company health plans. There are two practical problems here. First, insurance companies could still reject those with pre-existing conditions. Second, there is no provision for the jobless, unless the states want to provide insurance for them. Those with preexisting conditions would be forced into high risk pools set up in each state. One criticism is that high risk pools have been around for decades yet only about 200,000 Americans get their health insurance this way, mainly because of cost. On his Web site, Rep. Rooney dishonestly implies that consumers would be unable to change doctors under the Obama reform. Yet many employer health plans restrict employees to a list of doctors. Republican legal opposition to the Obama reform is based on the claim that the federal government cannot force anyone to buy an item such as insurance. This poses an interesting question. If the Federal Congress cannot force an individual to buy insurance, can it force an employee to enroll in a company health plan? Either requirement could make sense under the federal governments power t o regulate interstate commerce. Requiring an individual to buy insurance somewhere certainly give s more choices than forcing everyone into an employe r plan. The Republican plan favors portability, which may not mean what you think it means. Portability doesnt mean that you can keep your health insuranc e when you change jobs. Instead, it means that insu rers can sell insurance across state lines without regard to state law. With portability, when you buy a policy from an out-of-stat e company, the policy overrides state law. This relies on the federal governmen t, with its authority over interstate commerce, givin g insurance companies permission to ignore the states. Oddly enough, Republican Congressmen favor undermining state law for the benefit of insu rance companies. Suppose that the legisla ture in your state decides that health insurance should cover alcoholism, in an effort to reduce drunk driving. Under penalty, an y insurer based in a state without this requirement would be free to ignore th at law. The Congressional Budget Office concluded that under the Republican bill, the number of insured would remain unchanged. In Highlands County, that means that a third of the people would still be with out health insurance. This puts a strain on our hospitals and results in costs being passed on to local taxpayers. The health care bill passed by Congress made insurance companies subject to antitrust law, for th e first time. Liberal critics concluded that Rep. Tom Prices Republican health bill is similar to plans tha t failed in Texas and California. Dale Gillis is a Sebring resident.

V iewpoint shows disrespect E ditor: For 400 years, Americans d edicated to the word of G od, and its application in o ur lives, have offered biblic al references for electing c itizens to office in our vario us forms of government. F rom charters established at t heir departure to come to t his great land, to compacts m ade after establishing a sett lement; from the D eclaration of I ndependence, the Articles of C onfederation, to the C onstitution of the United S tates of America. Adocum ent in existence for 223 y ears this June 21, 2011; this i s historical in itself. This is t he longest representative r epublic under such a docum ent in all of history. This document and the c ountry it governs are now u nder attack by those who h old office and are influe nced by global adherents to a nother ideology. This phil osophy is in contrast to our d ocuments of independence a nd our constitutional repres entative republic. This v iewpoint is based on prog ressive and socialistic writi ngs contrary to the writings o f our founding fathers. It d isrespects the countless A merican men and women w ho have given their lives to d efend the ideals in these w ritings. This must end. This nation was called to d efend the freedoms b estowed on us by God from t he pulpits of various churches in the early years of this republic. That was silenced by a floor amendment to the federal tax law offered by then Senator Lyndon B. Johnson of Texas on July 2, 1954. This amendment was passed without the benefit of congressional hearings. This is an attack on the first amendment to the constitution, and just one of many that have been proposed. Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence, ...whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it. We can alter this in 2012 through our constitutional right of voting, as per Article 1, section 2 of the Constitution. Search your heart, but above all search the documents and writings that this country was built on, including The Bible, the most quoted source of or founding fathers, 34 percent in the political writings of the Founding Era. Larry J Overfield SebringPay attention and buy AmericanEditor: Hurrah! Somebody is finally waking up. Im sure that the powers that be (the purchasing agents at Walmart) havent seen my notes to the paper but somebody has wakened their buying habits and they are now selling American flags that are made in America. We just replaced the flags in our front yard with new ones from Walmart and they are proudly marked with new ones from Walmart and they are proudly marked made in USA, Camden, N.J. Bravo for you Walmart. Now expand your purchasing of electronics, auto supplies and clothing to American made products and you will decreased the money going into these foreign countriestreasuries to fatten their war chests to buy bullets and bombs to kill our grandkids or their kids. Pay attention to what you buy. If enough people start paying attention to buy American slogans, our movement will take hold. Mention it to your friends and get the word moving. You will be surprised what word of mouth advertising can do. Woodie Jackson Sebring BouquetsStaff shows great, honest serviceEditor: Last Friday night we had dinner at Duffers. I received a call from the manager about 10 that night that they had found my purse. Believe it or not I had not even missed it. I dont carry a purse too often so just got up from the table and left. The manager said he would put it in the safe for the night and I could come at 10 Saturday morning to get it. I just want to thank the Duffers staff. Not only did they safeguard my purse, the service earlier was great and the food excellent.. Melicent Schrader SebringSouthern Lifestyle is wonderful placeEditor: Dont you think that its about time we hear some happy, thankful news. So I hope everyone reads this. I was recently a patient at Florida Hospital in Lake Placid, where I received good care. And while I was gone, Southern Lifestyle did a good job of taking care of my 20-year-old dog. So profound thanks to all the wonderful people for your help. I would now like to tell you about a hoe-down party that we had at Southern Lifestyle on March 26. The entertainment was amazing. There were large groups of dancers. There were cloggers, whipps and critters, square dancers. Lunch was outstanding provided by Chef Robin and his wonderful staff. Then followed music by Uptown Country, which brought rhythm that we thought we had forgotten. So for all of those reasons, there are not enough Thank Yous in the dictionary to thank Southern Lifestyle. Gerrie Matchus Lake Placid

The New Jersey native moved to the area specifically for the Center for Great Apes and hasnt looked back. ONeill has gained much experience at the sanctuary in Wauchula and is confident that his work experience will allow him to stand out and become a part of the film crew. I do this every day. I interact with them and work with them. I have the experience that it would take to be a part of this, said ONeill. Currently, ONeills video has just over 1,200 views. Of course, ONeill hopes that his video pitch will have a huge boost in views during the final two weeks of the contest. The contest ends April 10 at 5 p.m. Visit http://www.youtube.com/w atch?v=StBBY4UG38Q or http://gg.tigweb.org/TIG/ DEFORESTACTION/51351/ to view ONeills videos and help him gain the attention of the selection committee and become a part of the film. Continued from page 2A highway. At the grass verge the vehicles disengaged, but Finigans truck overturned, rolling seven times. He was thrown from the truck, which came to rest on top of him and he died on the scene. Michael Finigan was seriously injured and taken to Delray Medical Center. As of Thursday morning he was no longer listed as a patient. The driver of the Honda was also seriously injured and transported to Bethesda Memorial Hospital. As of Thursday morning she was no longer listed as a patient. Zena Finigan said the Florida Highway Patrol told her it appeared the young woman had been texting at the time of the accident. Aservice is being planned in West Palm Beach because so much of the family is there, Zena Finigan said, however, a smaller service will be held here for his friends sometime next week. Dates are still to be arranged as the medical examiner has not yet released Finigans body. He had three children, Marissa, 20, Nicholas, 18, and Dylan, 11. Continued from page 1A basically was the government. Stroup was responsible for all the work that today is done by a clerk, treasurer, tax collector and city manager. He collected coins from parking meters, dealt with the public, served the city council, and oversaw many construction projects including the civic center, the building being named in his honor. Barbara Hines, who was one of a staff of three in 1969 and did accounting, remembers Stroup with affection. He was a wonderful person and boss, she said, just a joy to work with. Hines said the city was much smaller then. Stroup and three women made up the staff. City hall was located on the Historic Circle in what is now the Douglas McLean Building. Stroups office was tiny and tucked into a corner in the back. The city council met upstairs. By the time Stroup retired in 1990, the city had grown considerably, and day-to-day administration required a staff large enough to be divided into departments. It was Stroup who saw the city through the transition, and who was essential in creating the foundation upon which Sebring builds today. Mayor George Hensley invites all who knew Jack Stroup, and all those with a sense of history and gratitude, to turn out Wednesday evening for the dedication of the building. The ceremony begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Civic Center, which is at 355 West Center Ave. Continued from page 1A News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS City of Sebring Public Works maintenance worker John McManus pours paint into a tray Thursday morning to ready the Sebring Civic Center for an upcoming dedication ceremony in honor of Jack Stroup. Stroup to be honored Wednesday News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS Tyler Hobbs works off community service hours Thursday morning by applying a new coat of paint to the Sebring Civic Center. The building is being repainted and spruced up for the upcoming Jack Stroup Civic Center dedication ceremony. Local man killed when truck rolls Sebring man need video views to win place in ape film The most expensive item on the menu is a smoked salmon salad at $8.95. Ahot dog costs $3 and comes with steak fries. Tea, coffee and sodas are on the house with a meal. Davis takes pride in smoking her own meats. She is expanding her dessert list, which already includes blackberry cobbler. The orange ice cream and pie will arrive as soon as the electrician completes his work. Come fall, she will add unusual choices, like vinegar pie. She plans on adding a small market to provide fresh vegetables and some essentials, but was adamant in saying whatever was added would be in keeping with the ambiance of the dinning room. When she left the state park Davis wasnt sure she would stay in the area, but everything has taken off so well and the community has been so supportive and generous, she looks forward to serving Highlands County for some time to come. Hammock Family Restaurant is open from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 4:30 on Sunday. It is at 222 Golf hammock Drive. The telephone number is 3820404.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSebring southpaw Aaron H art didnt start out exactly s harp, allowing the first batt er of the game to reach on h is own error and promptly p lunking the next hitter. But he quickly settled in a nd mowed through the R idge batting order in the B lue Streaks 6-0 win T uesday night at Firemens F ield. The Boys in Blue would t hen get the only run they r eally needed in their half of t he first, with Seth Abeln d rawing a lead-off walk, stealing second, getting to third when Evan Lewis reached on an error and coming home on Jesse Bakers sacrif ice fly. Of course, Sebring would a dd to the early lead, as u nnecessary as those extra r uns would turn out to be. One Ridge batter reached o n an error in the second, but H art retired the other three w ith no harm done. Johnny Knight provided t he next two insurance runs, b lasting a home run one pitch a fter Nate Greene had singled t o left in the bottom of the s econd. Hart then cruised through a o ne, two, three third and f ourth before giving up the l one Ridge hit of the game in t he top of the fifth. That came with one out a nd was quickly diminished w hen Hart struck out the next b atter and retired the side on a ground-out to first. Gunnar Westergom then tallied a Blue Streak run when, after getting hit by a pitch with two out in the bottom of the fifth, he made it to third on an Abeln single and raced to the plate on a passed ball. Two Bolts reached in the sixth, on an error and walk, but Hart again responded with a strike out to end any thought of a further threat and the Streaks would finish the scoring with two in their half of the inning. Lewis lashed a lead-off double and moved to third on Bakers bunt. Corbin Hoffner then reached on an error, allowing Lewis to come in, with Steven Dunn then coming in to pinch-run. Dunn then promptly stole second and advanced to third on Greenes ground-out. Knight then walked and Sebring pulled off a double steal, bringing Dunn in with the sixth and final run of the night. Ridge then went down in order in the seventh on two ground outs and a strike out, Harts ninth of the game. Further showing Harts dominance, he threw just 89 pitches in seven innings, 64 for strikes, with 16 of the 25 Ridge batters seeing a firstpitch strike to quickly fall behind in the count. Now 15-3 on the season, 5-2 in district play, Sebring was to face a tough non-district game Thursday night with a visit from the 11-4 Yellow Jackets of Bartow. See Sundays News-Sun for a recap of the contest. SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, April 1, 2011 Page 3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Great defensive plays, like this diving catch by Brody Carr, couldnt stave off two losses for the Green Dragons Tuesday in the Lake Placid Spring Break Classic. News-Sun photo by KIM GAUGER Aaron Hart may have stopped Ridge on the mound, but Johnny Knight popped them at the plate with this second-inning, two-run homer in Tuesdays 6-0 win over the Bolts. Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Yates Insurance (17-7) defeated Central Security (9-15) on Wednesday in a comefrom-behind game to solidify their hold on first place and win the Lake Placid Senior Softball championship. This win typifies the spirit of our team, boasted Manager Dusty Hensley.We never quit, and we are never out of a game.We pull for each other, and the results speak for our resolve. Yates trailed by ten runs in the fourth inning, but rallied behind the Four Hit Club of Victor Rodriguez, Ray Hensley, and Harold Welbaum.Bob Fox had five hits for Yates. Barry Hurlbut homered, Jim Morgan had two doubles and Dusty Hensley had two triples. For Central, Jim Louzan homered and Chuck OHara, back from a hand injury, had three hits. In other action, Schoonis (11-13) romped over Lockhart Service Center (9-15) 26-8 for their third win in the last four games. Bob Poulin held the hard-hitting Lockharts to single-digit runs, something few teams have accomplished this year. Poulin helped his own cause with three over-thefence and, with all apologies to Bob Seger, againstthe-wind home runs. Bob Roth (double), Gary Steeves (two doubles, home run), John Buja (triple), Don Ward (two doubles), and Ed Engler (two doubles) had four hits in the winning effor t. Jeff Stanley (doubl e) and Manager Darre ll Richards had three hi ts each. For Lockhart, Da ve Reed had four hits whi le Billy Todd and Dor an Quigg had three hits eac h. Lake Placid Marine (1 410), the league runner-u p, squeaked past Semino le Tire (12-12) 12-11. For the Mariners, t he Three Hit Club includ ed Jim Hensley, Larry Lan e, Howard Carney and Glen n Wersch. For Seminole Tire, Ky le Saunders (two double s) had four hits. Charlie Quinn (doubl e) and Tom Walsh had thr ee hits each. After the games, t he league had its annual ba nquet at the Lake Ju ne Ballfield.

Yates Insurance takes Lake Placid Senior League Streaks coast with Hart one-hitter Sebring6Ridge0 By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Mondays rains washed away the bulk of the Lake Placid Spring Break Classic, reducing it to just Tuesdays doubleheader for the Green Dragons. And there are any number of maladies that could help explain the Dragon doldrums of late a continued hangover from the climactic win over Sebring, Spring Break-itis, or simply a banged up pitching staff and sporadic offense. Or it may have been a combination of all of that as the Green Dragons dropped the afternoon game to LaBelle, 7-4, before also falling in a fall-from-ahead, 8-5 loss to Clewiston. It was in the Sebring game that our pitching started to get nicked up some, head coach Dan Coomes said. And when the pitching is hurt, the defense falls down a bit and its a domino effect. That was evident in the opener as Colby Delaney, rife with a laundry list of nagging injuries, struggled with his command against the Cowboys. He started off stron g enough, cruising through t he first and ending it with a knee-buckling, third-stri ke curve. But his usually overpowe ring stuff wasnt in ev idence in the second as three straight hit s, including a doub le down the right-fie ld line, and a fielder s choice plated tw o runs. Asingle in the thi rd and a wild pitch that allow ed the runner to reach third, w as followed by a sacrifice fly to make it a 3-0 edge f or LaBelle.

After all those brackets a round the country hit the s hredder, Kentucky and C onnecticut will play in the b lue blood bracket, while B utler and VCU face off in t he up-and-comers division.

THE UNDERDOGS In honor of underdogs Butler and VCU getting to the Final Four, wed thought itd be interesting to look back at some of the all-time upset teams in NCAAtournament history: North Carolina State, 1983. Lorenzo Charles dunking, Jim Valvano running, Pack beats Phi Slamma Jamma. Doesnt get much better than that. Indiana State, 1979. So what if Magic and Michigan State took down the Sycamores? What Larry Bird and his batch of underlings did was incredible stuff. George Mason, 2006. The trendsetter for the current mid-major runs. The Patriots took down big boys Michigan State, North Carolina and No. 1 overall seed UConn to get to the Final Four. Butler, 2010. The Bulldogs set their own standard just last year, coming within a nearly-banked-in halfcourt shot by Gordon Hayward of becoming the ultimate Cinderella against Duke. Villanova, 1985. First year of the 64-team field and the Wildcats made it a memorable one, becoming the highest seed to win a national championship as a No. 8. Louisiana State, 1986. First No. 11 seed to reach the Final Four.

Panther Volleyball Camps second and third in their half of the third, but couldnt capitalize. Heath Harris came on in relief in the fourth and set the side down in order and the Dragons seemed to spark in the bottom half. Kyle Barber doubled with one out and one out later, Nevada Weaver legged out a bunt to put runners on the corners. Dylan Weber-Callahan then knocked one in with a single to left and Weaver came in when Brandon Wells beat out an infield single to cut the margin to 3-2. Weber-Callahan then came on to pitch and kept the margin manageable through the next two innings. The offense then tied it in the sixth, with Weaver coming in on the front end of a double steal, but it all fell apart in the seventh. Asingle lead it off for the Cowboys and one out later was followed by a hit by pitch and bunt single to load the bases. With the infield pulled in, a single up the middle plated two, and despite a diving catch by Brody Carr of a fly to right, another came in on the sacrifice fly. An RBI single followed to push the lead to 7-3. The Dragons mounted a slight rally in the last half of the seventh, scoring on a Barber bloop to right, but the next two were retired to end the contest. Clayton Mason got the nod on the mound in the second game against the Tigers of Clewiston and was effective early on as his team staked him to a seemingly big lead with a five-run third. But the Tigers started clawing back and the bullpen and defense couldnt maintain as three scored in the fourth, three more in the fifth and two in the sixth narrowed the gap, took the lead and sealed the come-from-behind win. There was a bit of Spring Break fever, it happens every year, Coomes said. But its really the injuries that are hurting us. Well get there. It will be ugly for another week or so, but it will start getting better. The team hopes the doldrums dont continue much longer as two district games come up next week with a trip to Fort Meade Tuesday and a home date with Avon Park Friday. Continued from 1B LP looks to get over injury bug News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Ricky Miller fires off-balance to first to record an out, but the Dragons couldnt pull out a win Tuesday. 3 Number of No. 11 s eeds to reach the Final Four: L SU in 1986, George Mason i n 2006, VCU this year. 5 NCAAtournament g ames won by VCU, most e ver to reach the Final Four. 14 Final Four appeara nces by Kentucky, eight m ore than the other three t eams combined. 19 Games decided by t hree points or fewer in this y ears NCAAtournament, t ied for second behind the 24 i n 1990 for most since the f ield expanded to 64 teams. 26 Combined seeds of C onnecticut (three), K entucky (four), Butler ( eight) and VCU (11), highe st in Final Four history. The p revious high was 22 in 2 000. 40 Games played by V CU and Connecticut (once t hey play Saturday), matchi ng the modern-day (since 1 948) record, set seven previo us times. ONE-MAN SHOWS UConns Kemba Walker h as put on a virtuoso perf ormance, not just in the N CAAtournament, but also i n the Big East tournament. H e may be a slender 6 feet 1, but he has carried the Huskies through nine straight elimination games. In honor of his play, here are a few other impressive one-man shows through the years: Stephen Curry, Davidson, 2008. The king of mid-major mayhem. Danny Manning, Kansas, 1988. The Jayhawks were known as Danny and the Miracles, but they might be considered The Untouchables when it comes to one leading the many in NCAAtournament history. Larry Bird, Indiana State, 1979. Larry Legend could have led Moe and Curly to the title game the way he was playing. Bill Bradley, Princeton, 1965. Led the unheralded Tigers to the Final Four, set an NCAAtournament record with 58 points against Wichita State in the thirdplace game. Bill Walton, UCLA, 1973. Big Red had some help but was as dominating as perhaps anyone in NCAAtournament history, capping it with 44 points in the title game. Jerry West, West Virginia, 1959. He set an NCAAtournament record while averaging 32 points and took the noname Mountaineers into the title game against California. Lew Alcindor, UCLA, 1967. The man who would later become Kareem helped the Bruins set a tournament record for average margin of victory on their way to 10 straight Final Four wins. Bill Russell, San Francisco, 1956. Twenty-six points, 27 rebounds in the title game alone. Austin Carr, Notre Dame. 1970. Just three games, but went for 61, 52 and 45. Nice. DID YOU KNOW? Butler is the first Division I school from Indiana to reach consecutive Final Fours. Five-time national champion Indiana, Purdue and Notre Dame had never done it. Kentucky coach John Calipari joins Rick Pitino as the only coaches to lead three different schools to the Final Four. Calipari also took Massachusetts and Memphis, while Pitino did it with Providence, Kentucky and Louisville. The Horizon League (Butler 2010-11) joins the Big West (UNLV1990-91), Missouri Valley (Cincinnati 1961-62) and West Coast (San Francisco 1955-56) conferences as the only non-BCS conferences to send a member to consecutive Final Fours. All four of UConns Final Four appearances (1999, 2004, 2009, 2011) have gone through the NCAAtournaments West regional. Butler is one of seven teams to reach the Final Four a year after losing in the national title game, joining Ohio St. (1962), North Carolina (1969), North Carolina (1982), Houston (1984), Duke (1991), Michigan (1993). UConns mens and womens teams have reached the Final Four in the same season for the third time. Only six other schools have done it, none more than once. This years tournament marks the first time since 1983 that the Final Four teams have winning streaks of at least five games. This years schools have streaks of 13 (Butler), nine (Connecticut), nine (Kentucky) and five (VCU). In 1983, Houston had won 25 straight, Louisville 16, North Carolina State eight and Georgia seven.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Nursing students at South Florida Community College (SFCC) recently participated in an American Red Cross Sheltering and Disaster Health for Nursing Students workshop preparing students to volunteer with the local Red Cross chapter in the event of a local disaster. With their strong commitment to community service, our nursing students want to be ready to respond should disaster strike close to home, said Dr. Michelle Heston, director of Nursing Education. This workshop will prepare them to volunteer in Red Cross disaster settings. In the blink of an eye a flood, fire, hurricane, tornado or other natural or manmade disaster can leave people with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Thats why every region needs a plan to respond to local disasters, and trained people ready to staff relief operations. Nursing students, under the direct supervision of Red Cross nurses, are an important part of that response. SFCC is one of 12 U.S. nursing schools piloting the workshop that introduces nursing students to the role of a Red Cross Disaster Health Services volunteer, prepares nursing students to assess the needs of disaster clients and provide needed assistance, provides strategies for working with vulnerable populations and more. The course is part of the American Red Cross National Student Nurse Program. Disaster Preparedness is a critical component of the professional development of nursing students. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) requires emergency preparedness/disaster management content in all accredited baccalaureate nursing programs. Sheltering and Disaster Health for Nursing Students meets AACN requirements. The American Red Cross shelters, feeds, and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nations blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization, not a government agency, and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.

Unfortunately, every year millions of Americans face the reality of diagnosis and living with this disease. After the initial emotions are faced, then comes the challenge of choosing the best treatment and maintaining the highest level of health possible in the face of cancer. So what can one do to stay healthy and strong, and to build the best possible defenses to beat this disease? Well, you could do what Billy Bynum did when he was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2005. I packed-up my things and moved from Las Vegas to Florida, says Bynum. After a lot of research and going through several doctors and hospitals, I knew I had to make the move. The reason for this move was to be treated by Frank Franzese, M.D., oncologist at WellSpring Oncology. I knew Dr. Franzeses background and I felt comfortable with the idea of being treated by him. So I made the move while the cancer was still in its early stages, because I knew that would be the best time to beat it. While such measures may seem extreme to some, to Bynum it made perfect sense for his own well-being, and to remain as healthy as he could. However, if a crosscountry move isnt for you, there are many alternatives cancer patients can do to stay healthier during this difficult time. Bynum shares some of his personal strategies while his doctor gives advice to those who, like Bynum, are living with cancer.Eat well to live wellGood nutrition is important for everyone, says Franzese. However, for those in the midst of chemotherapy or radiation, getting the vitamins and minerals needed in order to stay strong is more important than ever. And while the side effects of treatment may make eating the farthest thing from your mind, maintaining your basic calorie needs is important for your overall health. When it comes to keeping your body strong and fighting the fatigue that can come with cancer treatment, protein can be your greatest ally. Not only will it aid in boosting your energy, but it will also help rebuild damaged tissue and protect against unwanted weight loss. Natural food sources such as chicken, fish, dairy and nuts are the best way to add protein to your diet. Also, instead of three big meals per day, try to eat five or six smaller ones to maintain your optimal strength. Its also vital to stay hydrated. According to the American Cancer Society, many issues often associated with cancer and treatment such as weakness and nausea may actually be a result of dehydration. So make sure to drink at least eight cups of fluid per day, more if you are experiencing side effects like vomiting or diarrhea. These fluids include anything that your body can handle, from water to broth. However, remember that each patient is unique, so talk to your doctor about your own personal nutrition needs. For Bynum, eating well and changing his diet wasnt only about eating better foods, it was also a need to lose weight for both his battle against cancer and a recommendation from his cardiologist. I became a huge fan of fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods, Bynum says. Not only did I lose 50 pounds, I also gained more energy that has helped me in my journey to beat this disease.Be activeFor those going through cancer treatment, exercise can have a huge effect on boosting energy and creating an overall better sense of well-being. Physical activity offers many benefits to those living with cancer. It lessens fatigue, creates a better body image, improves fitness and strength and results in a better quality of life. It can also lessen the anxiety, nausea and depression that may result from your journey with the disease. So if you can, try to exercise every day. Even 15 to 30 minutes of moderate physical activity can have a positive effect. Certain activities, such as walking, swimming and low-impact aerobics, are generally safe and effective. Just remember to start slowly and listen to your body, says Franzese. But while its important to avoid inactivity, remember that much like nutrition, exercise is not a one-size-fits-all activity. Each patient may need a different exercise regimen depending upon their current level of activity, stage of treatment and type of cancer diagnosis. So ask your doctor if the two of you can design an exercise routine that will fit your personal needs. Rest and de-stressExercise is important, but equally essential is finding time to rest and relax. Taking time for yourself is vital in order to prevent becoming overly fatigued. Whether you simply spend some quiet time alone or retreat to take a nap, making time for yourself will alleviate some of your fatigue. Ways to get the rest you need include getting at least eight hours of sleep per night, taking short naps (less than one hour) throughout the day and relaxing while reading or listening to music. If you have trouble sleeping because of your treatment, talk to your doctor about this side effect and how he or she can help. If stress is stressing you out, try a few of the following to help manage it: Be realistic about your expectations of yourself. Cut back on your to-do list if you feel it may be too much to handle. Only focus on the most important things and save the rest for future days. Allowing yourself to complete even just a few things on your list can give you a great sense of accomplishment and reduce your stress. Practice relaxation techniques that you find effective in reducing your stress, such as deep breathing or light exercise. Consider attending support groups. Meeting other people living with cancer and understanding how they cope gives you a chance to see how others manage the stress associated with the disease.Take care of youRegardless of which steps you take to stay healthy while living with cancer, make sure to take care of yourself. Staying healthy despite the disease can make a big difference in both your physical and emotional ability to battle the disease. Advice on staying healthy while living with cancer By ESTHER HARRIS Special to the News-SunYouve made your decision: although youre eligible to collect Social Security payments, youre going to keep working and delay receiving your retirement benefits. But dont forget abou t Medicare. Even if you decide to wait until after you are age 65 to apply for retiremen t benefits, most people should apply for Medicare coverage at age 65. I f youd like to begin you r Medicare coverage, you should apply within fou r months of reaching age 65. Theres a fast, convenient, and simple way to apply online for Medicare in as little as 10 minutes, even if youre not ready to receive retirement benefits. Just visit www.socialsecurity.gov/medicareonly. At the website, youll find more than just the online Medicare application. Youll also find information about Medicare, and have the opportunity to watch a short, fun video reuniting the cast of The Patty Duke Show to tell you about the ease and convenience of filing fo r Medicare online. Its important to note that people who already receive Social Security retirement or disability benefits do not need to apply for Medicare; they will be automatically enrolled. There is no additional charge for Medicare hospital insurance (Part A) since you already paid for it by working and paying Medicare tax. But there is a monthly premium fo r medical insurance (Part B). If you already have othe r health insurance when you become eligible fo r Medicare, you should consider whether you want to apply for the insurance. You may want to consul t with an insurance specialist. To learn more, read ou r online publication, Medicare, a t www.socialsecurity.gov/pu bs/10043.html. Esther Harris is the Social Security District Manager in Sebring. Remember Medicare even when youre not retired SFCC nursing students receive disaster response training Family FeaturesMany Americans follow a gluten free diet in their daily lives. In fact, retail sales for gluten free products nearly tripled from 2004 to 2009 reaching almost $1.7 billion. That number is estimated to top $2.6 billion in sales by the year 2012, according to Packaged Facts. Families are looking for wholesome, nutritious solutions that are gluten free and convenient but still taste great, said Keri Glassman, registered dietitian and author. Gluten free foods can fit into a busy lifestyle, without making mealtime sacrifices. Chex cereal is one of my top picks, and I recommend it as a good breakfast choice to many of my clients with gluten restrictions. Glassman noted that Wheat Chex and Multibran Chex are not gluten free and advises to always check package labeling and ingredient panels to confirm whether a product is gluten free. From breakfast staple to midday snack, or used in a gluten free recipe, Chex is a versatile pick for families on the go. Glassman and Chex offer healthy tips for anyone following a gluten free diet: Start the day right: Eating breakfast lays a good foundation for the day. Anutritious breakfast should contain whole grains, low-fat dairy, lean protein such as egg whites or peanut butter, and a serving of fruit. Chex cereals offer at least 8 grams of whole grain in every serving and pair perfectly with fruit such as bananas and blueberries, not to mention milk. Stock up: Keep the kitchen stocked with delicious options that are naturally gluten free, such as fruits, vegetables, cheese and most yogurts. Simple snacking: Nutrient-rich snacks can be part of a complete and healthy diet while helping to keep cravings at bay. Keep single servings of raw or dry-roasted nuts and crunchy gluten free cereal in your bag for an on-the-go option. Keep a food journal: Glassman recommends keeping a food journal to track meals and snacks throughout the day to ensure youre meeting your daily nutritional needs, including recommended servings of grains, fruits, vegetables and protein. Jot down what works well and what doesnt so you have a point of reference. Recipe round-up: Mix up your mealtime by testing delicious gluten free recipes the whole family will appreciate.

Passover receives its name from the last plague inflicted upon the Egyptians; the killing of the first born. The Israelites were instructed to mark their doors with the blood of a spring lamb so that the angel of the Lord would pass over their homes. While Passover is remembered mainly for unleavened bread, Matzo, more importantly, it commemorates freedom from slavery and the beginning of people hood for the Jews. This mass of wanderers shrugged off slavery and ultimately elected to bind themselves to an invisible, single Deity. Afour-course meal including choice of brisket or chicken, gefilte fish, matzo ball soup and all the trimmings will be served.

Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort have developed a tremendous evangelism technique called The Way of the Master. You may get more information from their Web site at livingwaters.com. What makes it so good is that it targets the conscience of an individual rather than just the intellect. Christ used this method by using the law to reveal to sinners their inadequacy to justify themselves before a holy God. Until a person realizes they are lost in the darkness of sin, they will not see the need of a Saviour who loves and died for them. Aseries of questions will reveal if you are good enough to go to heaven. If you died right now, are you absolutely sure you would go to heaven? I have asked this question many times receiving a number of different answers. Some say they hope so, others honestly say no. To those who would respond in the affirmative, I will say, What are you depending on to get you there? Probably 8 out of 10 people will proceed to tell me about all the good things they have done, their church attendance, and even their baptismal experience. This is a good time to say, So would you consider yourself to be a good person? (Now we are getting to the heart of the issue.) Most people feel as though they are a good person. But how good do you have to be to go to heaven? This is where the next series of questions come. Let us see how you measure up according to Gods moral standard the Ten Commandments. Have you ever told a lie? Of course, we all have told lies before. Then what does that mean you are? Aliar. Have you ever taken something that did not belong to you? Why sure, who hasnt? Then that would make you That makes me a thief. Hav e you ever taken th e name of God in vain? Yes. Tha t would mean you are a blasphemer . By now the pe rson is not so con fident. I may proceed to ask, Have yo u ever lusted after someone who was not your spouse ? Sheepishly, they may repl y Yeah. Jesus said, If a man looks upon a woman to lust after her, he has committed adultery alread y in his heart. At this point I might say, So by your own admission, you are a liar, thief, blasphemer, and adulterer at heart. If you were judged in Gods courtroom, would you be innocent or guilty? An honest reply will be guilty. Then I ask, Do es this concern you? At this point, I will rea lize if God is convicting them of their sin. If they dont care about how thei r sinful lifestyle offends God, then they are not ready for the good news o f salvation. But if they are indeed bothered and reali ze they are headed to hell, then they may hear how Christ loved them and die d to forgive them. Only a person in bondage can ever receive freedom. The truth is, there is none righteous, no, not one. For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:10,23) Nobody is good enough to get to heaven. That is why Jesus came to earth, perfectly fulfilled the law and died on the cross for our sin. He arose providin g eternal life to all who believe on Him. Romans 10:13 says, For whosoev er shall call upon the nam e of the Lord, shall be saved. Luke Knickerbocker is the pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Lake Placid, 216 E.

Hi, my name is Pastor Reinhold B uxbaum from The Way, and I like t o have a word with you. Lets just look at one country, Syria. L ast Friday the protest against P resident Bashar Assad spread to all m ajor cities of Syria, including D amascus. The majority of the populat ion is Sunni (74 percent). The leaders hip including the president are from a nother Moslem sect, called Allawite ( 15 percent of all Syrian Moslems). Not o nly do the Syrian Sunni Moslems w ant more power and say in the gove rnment, but they also have not forgott en the massacre of the presidents f ather, Hafez Assad, in February of 1 982. It happened in the city of Hama w hen the brotherhood uprising was c rushed by Hafez Assads military m ight and between 7,000 and 40,000 S unnis were killed. The bigger picture, however, is S yrias close relationship with Iran. S yria is supplied by Iran with very s ophisticated weapons which are to be used against Israel. The leadership of Iran hates Israel more then ever, especially since Israel introduced the stuxnet computer bug into the Iranian atomic power plant. They want Israel wiped off the map. And guess where Iran build their central war commando against Israel to co-ordinate the Arab coalition? Right in Damascus! So here is the danger: If Iran can motivate Syria and many of the other Arab Moslem nations to re-direct their anger against their common enemy, Israel, we could see a major Middle East war in the not so distant future. So where does Bible prophecy come in? Such a war is predicted in Psalm 83, and it mentions the names of the countries. Lebanon (with Hezbollah), Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Gaza (with Hamas) and other Arab nations. What is their cry? Come, they say, let us destroy them as a nation, that the name of Israel be remembered no more. With one mind they plot together, they form an alliance against you ( Psalm 83:4-5 NIV) The newspaper tells us that the lineup is in progress. The Bible shows us how this conflict will end. Make them like tumbleweed, O my God, like chaff before the wind. As fire consumes the forest or a flame sets the mountains ablaze let them perish in disgrace (Psalm 83:13,14,17) Already new attacks on Israel are happening. AJewish family brutally murdered in the West bank, 52 rockets shot in one night from Gaza, a bomb exploding in a Jerusalem bus. Yes, the stage is set for the second coming of Jesus! Reinhold Buxbaum is pastor of The Way Church, he teaches An Evening in Prophecy at Homers Restaurant at 6:30 p.m. the first Monday of each month.

What does hell mean to you? Is it an endless nightmare for sinners and unsaved souls, as mainstream Christianity has taught for centuries? Or is hell here on Earth, in the distractions, addictions and emptiness of daily life? Those ideas are receiving fresh scrutiny from some believers after a prominent evangelical pastor questioned the traditional idea of hell in his new book, Love Wins. Even before Rob Bells book was published this month, religious leaders and their followers were branding it heresy, hailing it as a breakthrough or landing somewhere in the middle. Thousands have weighed in on Twitter, Facebook, blogs or outside their places of worship. Bell better go back and read his Bible again! Hes all messed up! wrote Ruth Ward of New Albany, Ind., on Facebook. Satan is having a field day. James Turner, a 49-year-old Chicago laborer, says his concept of hell hasnt changed much since he attended church as a boy. For him, hell is a place where if you dont accept Jesus, or you reject Jesus, it is a place of torment. Hell is also for those who are ruthless and brutally hurt people, he said. I hope that smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee aint going to get me down there, he said, puffing on a cigarette Sunday outside the Chicagoland Community Church on the citys North Side, where hes attended services for about 10 years. For some readers, the book has been a breath of fresh air and a chance to discuss ideas that have long been taboo in evangelical circles. When Chad Holtz posted a Facebook message supporting Bells position, he was dismissed from his job as pastor at a United Methodist church in Henderson, N.C. Holtzs posts about the experience on his website drew a flood of responses, including from people who said they were afraid to tell relatives that they did not believe in the notion that God punishes sinners forever in hell. Carol Buikema, who attends Chicagos Wellington Avenue United Church of Christ, said she recently read a fellow congregants Facebook post about Bells book, and it prompted her to question her own beliefs about hell. It does pose more questions than answers for me, Buikema, 64, said Sunday. Believing in Jesus is a basic tenet of Christianity and if you dont believe in Jesus, you wont go to heaven, she said. The more I live life, I dont know if I totally believe that. Ive always believed that God is not a God of vengeance. He is a loving Go d. How would you equate the idea of a lovin g God with going to hell? Bells message is reaching a wide aud ience: On Friday, Love Wins was the fourt hbest-selling book overall on Amazon.com and the best-selling book in the religion cat egory. The Rev. Erik DiVietro, pastor of Bedfo rd Road Baptist Church in Merrimack, N.H ., said he felt the need to respond to Bells boo k after being repeatedly asked about it b y friends, former students and church member s. He disagrees with Bell on several points, b ut said Christians miss out if they dont try to engage the ideas. Christianity is a conversation, he sai d. So as were journeying with these ancie nt writings, we need to be asking question s. These are good questions, and they need to be part of the dialogue. Brandy Fenderson, a 34-year-old teach er and member of St. Anns Episcopal Church in Nashville, Tenn., said Bells book remind ed her of the importance of thinking critical ly about ones faith. I remember thinking I do believe theres a balance between intellect and faith. ... I ve argued (with friends) that intellect is divin e, given to us by God, and were not suppos ed to shut it down. What is hell? Book stirs debate about afterlife

Now, hes followed that up with Super. But the movie that really comes to mind while watching it is the brilliant Shaun of the Dead, which began life as a funny, loving homage to zombie flicks, then slowly, steadily became a really suspenseful, and really violent, zombie flick in its own right. Super starts out toying with the idea of the self-made vigilante superhero, someone with no special powers who nonetheless feels the need to fight crime. But by the end, Gunns film has morphed into an intense and bloody exploration of a man on a quest, one whos hell-bent on vengeance with a perky pixie by his side. The Office star Rainn Wilson plays it deadly straight as Frank, a sad-sack short-order cook whose wife, a waitress and former junkie named Sarah (Liv Tyler), is using again. In no time, shes also fallen into the creepy, skinny arms of Jacques (Kevin Bacon), an amusingly evil drug dealer. All this is more than one mild-mannered guy can stand, so the doughy Frank with a little push from the hand of God and some programming on the All-Jesus Network reinvents himself as a crime fighter. He goes by the name The Crimson Bolt, complete with a makeshift red costume, mask and weapon: a wrench, which he uses to unceremoniously bash peoples heads in. Super has a cheeky, geeky sense of humor when it comes to Franks awkward attacks: Its sweet and earnest, but also raunchy and fearless. Wilson finds the comedy in his characters sadness hes funny precisely because he isnt funny which makes you feel for him, too. Hes got more than a little Travis Bickle in him, but hes also just pathetic. But Ellen Page pretty much steals the show as Libby, the comic book store clerk who figures out who he is and insists on serving as his sidekick, even though she turns out to be not-so trusty. She reinvents herself as Boltie (after going through a series of possible nicknames and poses in a hilarious, breathless bit) and just goes gonzo. Page is a complete joy, albeit in a dangerously volatile way, and its so much fun to see the Juno star in such a different kind of role. Shes not the coolest girl in the room, she just doesnt have all the answers or just the right, poignant zinger. Shes a giddy goofball, and unabashedly so. But shes such a cute little thing, you cant help but adore her, even as shes reveling in the carnage shes created. Gunn himself gets some laughs, appearing as the Devil in a couple of scenes alongside Slither star Nathan Fillion, whos unrecognizable and delightfully subversive as The Holy Avenger, the superhero of a super-judgmental Christian television program. It may sound like Super is trying too hard to shock, trying too hard to be edgy or weird. But it has such a lowbudget charm, its pretty hard to resist. Besides, if you dont, you risk incurring the wrath of The Crimson Bolt. And you dont want that. DIVERSIONS DearReaders: Its April 1, the day I get to share some of the occasional letters I receive from folks who are pulling my leg. Read on: Dear Abby: My wife of 23 years is threatening to divorce me on the grounds that Im unreasonable. Is it unreasonable for me to attempt to keep my socks oriented to the proper feet? When I put my socks on the wrong feet, I run around in circles and become disoriented. I know women dont have this problem because they wear pantyhose so its impossible to put them on the wrong feet. I sewed a bit of red yarn on the tops of my right socks so I could keep them straight. My wife says Im crazy, but I insist, Right on right; left on left. So tell me, Abby must I run in stupid circles and endure moments of disorientation and embarrassment? Or should I forgo the red yarn and hang in there with my wife to preserve our marriage? Disturbed Kentucky Man DearDisturbed Kentucky Man: And a happy April FoolsDay to you, too. The red yarn is preferable to the yarn you have spun for me. (Its also preferable to running in circles like a decapitated chicken.) And youre mistaken about womens pantyhose. Ask any woman who has put hers on backward. DearAbby: Im concerned about my youngest son, Sammy. From the moment he gets up each day until the time he retires at night, he spends almost the entire time playing in the sandbox in our backyard. My wife and I are alarmed by his bizarre behavior, and incidentally, so is his wife. What should we do? Worried Dad in Georgia DearWorried Dad: Be sure to brush him off if he ever runs a marathon to prevent diaper rash. DearAbby: Lately Ive been having some strange dreams. I cannot explain how I come up with this stuff. The other night I had a doozy: whips, chains, whistles, yo-yos, circus midgets, a duck, a Romanian peasant woman, and my grandmother riding by on a bicycle giving me the finger. Please advise. California Dreamin DearCalifornia Dreamin: What a coincidence! I had that very same dream last night. Your grandmother sure gets around. DearAbby: I hate bothering you because I know youre busy, but I have been getting the runaround from my TVprovider. I have asked them repeatedly to send someone over to fix my set, but they keep saying it can be fixed by remote control. Ive got a black screen and it just doesnt work. Can you come over to fix it? Missing Jerry Springe r in Pittsburgh DearMissing Jerry: I help people solve relationship problems, but the one youre having with your TVset does not qualify. Sorry. DearAbby: I prefer to sleep facing in; my husband prefers to sleep facing out. My problem is when hes gassy which is often it puts me in the line of fire. Weve talked about how to deal with this problem, but havent been able to come up with a solution. Any suggestions? Gas Taxed in Newark, Del. DearGas Taxed: Yes. Switch sides!

Man fears sock drawer mix-up will doom him to run in circles Dear Abby By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticDuncan Jonesfirst film, the mesmerizing, sci-fi character drama Moon from 2009, was a marvel of efficiency, tension and pacing. It signaled the arrival of an artist with an appreciation for the past but also with his own clear, unique voice, ready to leave a distinctive stamp on the culture. And it was the best movie of the year according to this critic, at least. Source Code represents his evolution as a director, now that he has a bigger cast and more expensive toys to play with. Its swifter, glossier, more ambitious. And for a long time, its a thrilling and challenging puzzle based on a clever idea until it pushes its central gimmick and gets too greedy at the end, that is. Itll make your brain hurt (in a good way) trying to determine whether it all makes sense until it quite obviously and frustratingly doesnt make sense anymore. It also aims for some emotional connections it doesnt fully develop. Maybe were nitpicking needlessly, and should just let ourselves go with it. Still, it leaves you with the nagging sensation that this is a good film that could have been great, if only it had quit while it was ahead. Based on a script by Ben Ripley, Source Code keeps us as consistently confused and off-guard from the start as its main character, U.S. Army Capt. Colter Stevens (Jake Gyllenhaal). And, to be fair to you, itll be tough to describe what happens here without giving the aforementioned fun-of-the-puzzle away. But well try. Adecorated soldier from the battle in Afghanistan, Colter wakes up one morning, disoriented, on a commuter train heading toward Chicago. Across from him is a sweet and beautiful woman (Michelle Monaghan) whom hes never seen before, yet shes talking to him with the familiarity of a friend. He takes a quick glance at himself in the bathroom mirror and is startled to discover hes in the body of another man, one he doesnt know. Within minutes, the train has blown up, killing everyone on board but Colter suddenly finds himself still alive, strapped inside a crude metal pod, communicating by monitor with an Air Force captain (Vera Farmiga). She explains that hes part of a special assignment called Source Code, designed to allow him to enter the body of another man for eight minutes. His task is to gain valuable information and hopefully prevent a later, larger terrorist attack. And so Colter must go back and relive the same eight minutes over and over again, gleaning more details each time. Yes, this will probably remind you of Groundhog Day, but this is also where Source Code is at its most zippy and compelling and, strangely, at its most plausible. Gyllenhaal, who helped developed the character, makes Colters fear, anger and general discombobulation palpable, but Source Code also allows him some much-needed flashes of humor. The supporting cast is strong down the line, including Jeffrey Wright as the coldly driven brains of the operation, and even in the choice of actors on the train who only get a couple of lines, but have significance with each go-round. The score is a little insistent and intrusive, especially compared to the gorgeous and haunting score from Moon, and Jones could have made more of an impact at times with silence. But we should probably quit while were ahead, too, and let you discover the secrets of Source Code for yourself and decide whether they actually add up. Source Code dazzles until the end Summit Entertainment Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Colter Stevens in Source Code.

When the victim turns on the faucet, theyll get soaked! Ha! (Just remember not to forget that youve done this or youll blast yourself!)2.Glue a couple of realistic-looking fake quarters to your driveway or other non-public property. It works better with real quarters, but we hear thats illegal. Your call. Then sit back and watch your kids drive themselves batty trying to pick them up. Youll fall off your porch laughing.3.Stuff tissues or toilet paper into the toes of your familys favorite shoes, then watch them struggle to get them on in the morning. Dang, Mom. Have your feet swollen that much?4.After everyones asleep, set all the clocks ahead one hour. Then wake everyone up (at the usual time) screaming about how they overslept, missed the bus, are going to be late for school or work, etc. As theyre all scurrying about, frantic and worried, just lie back and laugh. You stinker.5.Glue a pen cap on, then ask someone if they can get it off for you.6.Two days before April FoolsDay, start telling someone how badly youre going to get them on the big day. Then tell them again. And again. Tease them. Laugh at them. Tell them theres nothing they can do about it. When April FoolsDay finally arrives, just sit back and relax as their paranoia grows with each passing minute. Yep. You got em all right, and there wasnt anything they could do about it.7.If your kids eat apples for lunch, carefully core a thin deep hole in the fruit and retain the plug. Stuff several Gummi Worms deep inside, then replace the end of the plug to conceal your handiwork. If done right, the first-bite reaction is priceless!8.If your family eats cereal for breakfast, remove the plastic bags from the boxes and switch them up. When they go to pour Raisin Flakes, theyll get Cocoa Booms! And if you really want to be mean, replace the milk with a mixture of flour and ... Wait, that is too mean. If you use milk in a cardboard container, just drop some food coloring in it. Pink milk anyone?9.If you work in an office, leave a note on a manly co-workers desk saying he has flowers to pick up at the front desk. Have someone who has a voice the target wont recognize leave a similar phone message. Then watch and laugh as he tries to convince the front desk to give him flowers that just arent there.10.Buy a fake video security camera (available in joke shops and online for around $10). The camera looks real and even moves and turns on a red light when it detects motion. Install it in your bathroom, then have a party. The first time a person uses the restroom, have the rest of the guests gather round your TVand laugh loudly enough for the person in the restroom to overhear. When the person returns to the room, theyll see everyone watching a prerecorded video tape of the empty bathroom, thinking they were just being watched in there. Caution: Make sure your friends have a good sense of humor. Until the joke is revealed, this one can be embarrassing! James Fussell, McClatchy NewspapersAt the Web site www.museum ofhoaxes.com, the greatest April Fools jokes have been catalogued. It really is amazing what people are gullible enough to believe. Let us help you prepare to be suspicious by recounting a few of the great pranks of all time. In 1933, the Madison CapitalTimes reported that the Wisconsin Capitol had been destroyed by a number of mysterious explosions, attributed to large quantities of gas, generated through many weeks of verbose debate in the Senate and Assembly chambers. Along with the story was a doctored picture showing the Capitol as it collapsed. The readers were fooled and shocked. In 1949, a New Zealand deejay for radio station 1ZB announced on the air that a milewide swarm of wasps was headed toward Auckland. He warned listeners to protect themselves by suggesting they wear their socks over their trousers when they went to work, and that they leave honey-smeared traps outside their doors. Hundreds of people took his advice. In 1957, the BBC news show Panorama announced that thanks to a mild winter and the demise of the harmful spaghetti weevil, Swiss farmers were enjoying a bumper spaghetti crop. The report included footage of Swiss peasants pulling strands of spaghetti down from trees. Large numbers of viewers were fooled, with many of them calling in to find out how they could grow their own spaghetti trees. In 1962, Sweden had only one TVchannel, which broadcast in black and white. The stations technical expert appeared on the news to announce a recently developed technology that would allow viewers to easily convert their existing sets to display color reception. All they had to do was pull a nylon stocking over the screen, and they would begin to see their favorite shows in color. Reportedly,hundreds of thousands of people tried the conversion process. In 1976, a British astronomer announced on BBC Radio 2 that at 9:47 a.m. an unusual astronomical event would take place that listeners could experience in their own homes. He said the planet Pluto would pass behind Jupiter, which would lessen the Earths gravity and allow listeners to float in the air if they jumped at that exact moment. When the time arrived, BBC2 received hundreds of phone calls from people claiming to have felt the floating sensation. In 1982, the Connecticut Gazette and Connecticut Compass, a pair of weekly newspapers, announced they were being purchased by Tass, the official news agency of the Soviet Union. Their front pages stated this was the first expansion of the Soviet media giant outside of the Iron Curtain. Readers were fooled, with one caller informing them that he had always suspected them of harboring communist tendencies. In 1993, a deejay at KGB-FM in San Diego announced that the space shuttle Discovery had been diverted from Edwards Air Force Base and soon would land at Montgomery Field, a small airport in a residential area. Thousands of commuters immediately headed to the landing site, which caused huge traffic jams that lasted for almost an hour. Police had to be called in to clear the traffic and tell people with cameras, camcorders and folding chairs to go home. Corporate types like to have a little fun, too. In 1996, Taco Bell announced that it had bought the Liberty Bell from the federal government so it could be renamed the Taco Liberty Bell. Hundreds of outraged citizens called the National Historic Park in Philadelphia to express their anger. And in 1998, Burger King published a full-page ad in USA Today announcing the introduction of a menu item a LeftHanded Whopper, uniquely designed with all the condiments rotated 180 degrees. Thousands of customers went to BK to request the new sandwich. Neil White, McClatchy Newspapers The BBC show Panorama fooled viewers with a story on spaghetti crops. Adoctored Madison CapitalTimes picture shows the Capitols collapse. Heres the thing about reading the paper. If you do it, it gives you an advantage over those who dont. How can you best use this advantage to show non-readers what fools they be? We have a few ideas. Now lets be clear here. Were not telling you to play April Fools Day jokes on non-readers. Were just saying, hey, these classic gags are going to be played on somebody. What you do with the following information is entirely up to you. MCTPHOTOS
