C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comLAKE PLACID This weekend, hundreds of local students will be participating in the ageless ceremony that is high school graduation. The cap and gown, tassel and diploma are part of the tradition along with the immense feeling of achievement when each student walks across the stage. For one student, however, that simple task will take every ounce of effort available. Meesha Munnings is one of 163 graduating seniors at Lake Placid High School. Munnings is an exceptional student as well as an athlete, being a member of the girlsbasketball team throughout her high school career. I knew something was wrong. It was hard to run and then I couldnt run at all, but I didnt want to quit, I wanted to play basketball my senior year, Munnings said. It was shortly after the Lady Green Dragonsseason ended that Munnings learned why she could not run. Munnings was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, an aggressive form of bone cancer affecting adolescents during periods of rapid growth. Munnings received the news on Jan. 26 and has been battling the disease for the past several months. Following her initial diagnosis, Munnings underwent a surgery where NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Friday-Saturday, June 3-4, 2011 www.newssun.com Volume 92/Number 65 | 50 cents www.newssun.com 079099401001 HighLow 93 71Complete Forecast PAGE 12A Mostly sunny and breezy Forecast Question: Do you think this will be an active Hurricane Season?

In a press release dated Tuesday, HCSO Public Information Officer Nell Hays informed the media that Romeo S. Garcia turned himself in after his home at 416 Spring Lake Boulevard was searched on a warrant on May 18. More 25 pounds of marijuana plants were seized in the raid, the release said. According to Hayes, the estimated street value of the 16 plants was $30,000. Garcia was not at home at the time his house was searched, but was convinced to return to Highlands County and turn himself in, Hays said. They were able to contact him via the telephone, and he decided to come in, Hays said. Hays also said on Thursday that Garcia was a self-employed contractor and was out of town working when the raid happened. Hays also stated that she was not able to comment on if the arrest of Garcia would lead to other arrests. It appears Garcia was in the process of retrofitting the residence into a larger grow operation and we were able to adversely affect that possibility, Special Investigations Unit Captain Randy LaBelle stated in the release. Garcia was charged with the manufacture of marijuana, trafficking in marijuana (25 pounds or more) and possession of drug paraphernalia. Garcia is currently being held in the Highlands County jail with a $65,500 bond, Hays stated. 25 pounds of marijuana seized in grow house search News-Sun photo by SAMANTHAGHOLAR Driver Edward Niemiec is placed on a gurney and transported to a local hospital after his Jeep Grand Cherokee collided with a tree and a fence Wednesday afternoon on Lakeview Drive.

Their next stop is St. Sebastian. The group, which fluctuates in number and represents many Indian nations, is taking part in The Longest Walk 3, Reversing Diabetes 2011. The initial Longest Walk took place in 1978, and Longest Walk 2 occurred in 2008. The walk is not, however, restricted to American Indians. Everyone is welcome. For example, two Shinto priests from Japan also walk, as do many students along the way. Starting from La Jolla, Calif., the group is headed to Washington D.C., bringing attention to diabetes and heart disease along the way. Participants, and anyone who cares to join them, will be meeting for a summit with elected and health officials on July 8. First Lady Michelle Obama and the Dali Lama have indicated they hope to meet with the group as well.

Which one? the startled mother replied. Debs oldest son, Capt. R iley McEvoy, was serving in Kandahar with the 1 01st Airborne Divisions 2nd Brigade Combat Team. Her youngest son, 1st Lt. Connor McEvoy, was somewhere in Kunar p rovince. They left for Afghanistan from K entuckys Fort Campbell just two days apart in June 2010. That was an overwhelming weekend, Deb t old The Unknown Soldiers about seeing both her sons leave for war. Debs mind wandered in a thousand different directions as she learned i t was Connor who had been hit. Her sons Army v ehicle had been struck by a rocket-propelled grenade on a mountain road, leaving him with non-life-threatening i njuries but still serious enough to airlift the soldier out of a dangerous war zone. After more than 24 hours, which seemed like an eternity, Deb finally s poke to her son when he arrived in Germany. The p latoon leader had sustained leg injuries that would require months of recovery and rehabilitation, but he would surv ive. Our family is so fortunate, she said. Even though Connor was injured, we came out of it O K. While having two sons deployed at the same time was much different than her initial experiences as a military family member, Deb, 50, had grown to understand the sacrifices of service. Her husband, 1st Sgt. Joe McEvoy, spent 21 years on active duty. While living on Kentuckys Fort Knox, Joe was given the chance to move to TexasFort Hood to train for his first combat deployment. Instead of going to Iraq, Joe, now 51, retired for the sake of his children. We wanted to give Riley the opportunity to stay stabilized and graduate without moving again, Deb explained. As a good big brother, Riley, 26, was trying to figure out how to lift the spirits of Connor, 23, as he continued his recovery at Georgias Fort Gordon. The Army captain helped arrange a special ceremony in the hospital, where Connor was promoted to his current rank of first lieutenant. I think theyre doing fine, Deb said of her two sons. Theyve changed nobody can go over there and not come back a different person but I think theyre better men and better soldiers. The youngest McEvoy is changing right before Deb and Joes eyes as well.

Dennis Banks, co-founder of the American Indian Movement, discovered he had diabetes after being in a c ar crash. Doing research, he found that while diabetes c rosses all racial lines, it is a particular scourge among native Americans, 40 to 50 p ercent of whom struggle with the disease. Banks wanted to do something positive and came up with the idea for a walk. T wo different groups are making their way to the nations capital, one along t he northern tier of states, and the group here, which w alked across the southern states. Members of the Longest Walk 3 have sacrificed a great deal to take part. The w alk began on Valentines day, Good Wolf Kindness said. They plan to be in Washington by July 2. That means many of the participants will have been away from home five months. One of the walkers, who used his Indian name of Y ona, said, Our hearts do yearn for the people we left behind. I have a wife and three kids. Right now shes having to take care of the house, the kids and the bills. She represents the sacrifice behind our sacrifice. It is belief in the cause that keeps people going. Good Wolf Kindness said that diabetes is a danger to all humans, and even cats and dogs who, like humans, develop the disease by eating unhealthy food and not getting enough exercise. Josephine Colb, who lives in Southern California, has become a self-taught dietitian and cooks for the group. We treat diabetes like its a virus, taking injections, she said, but really its about educating yourself, eating healthy and in moderation. My main goal is to educate young mothers, because knowledge is power. Were not telling you what to eat, but letting people know what is healthy and what is not. Good Wolf Kindness said, There are seven teaspoons of sugar in a can of soda, and some of the components are found in embalming fluid. In fact, the group fines a walker $20 if they drink a soda. No fast food is allowed. We say its called fast food, because if you eat it you die faster, said Colb. The group buys local produce when it can and eats a diet strong in fruits and vegetables. Colb carries a twoburner stove, a 36-cup coffee pot, two cast-iron pans and two spoons. The group camps out in state and national parks when it can. Sometimes they are put up by volunteers along the route. The elders among them sleep in vehicles accompanying the march. Coordinators work to keep the walkers sheltered, provisioned with food and on safe walking routes. Sixto Salas, one of the walkers, has seen a change in his health since taking part. Ive left a lot of weight behind, he said. Ive lost 40 pounds and 12 inches off my waist. Im no longer using insulin. This works.

CRA hoping for a large turnout in AP h er femur was taken out of her right leg. I had surgery on April 28. They took out my femur and put in a metal rod and I had a partial hip-replacement, Munnings said. Ava Jones-Moore is a friend of the family and has know Munnings as well as her parents for years. We all attended the same church. I met her parents, Marilyn and Roger, years ago and Ive always kept up with her (Munnings) even after I moved, said Moore. Munnings returned to Lake Placid on Memorial Day after spending time in Tampa at the Moffitt Cancer Center. She is home now. I called and spoke to her and she said she was doing okay, said Moore. Then she said, Im going to walk across that stage. I wanted to walk by myself, but I will have to use a cane, Munnings said Thursday with a somber tone in her voice, which became stronger as she continued with her plans. Its a personal thing. I just want to do it. Its just another goal, said Munnings. Munnings took the week off from her Moffitt routine of two to three weeks of chemotherapy to spend a week home with her family and celebrate her extraordinary accomplishments. She will be graduating at the top of her class. Her grade point average is above 5.0 and with her high school career ending, Munnings has nothing but college on her mind. Im going to FSU (Florida State University) and Im going to be a nurse. Im not leaving in the fall, though. I am going to finish the chemo and then I will be there in January, Munnings said. Munnings is tackling the disease head-on and keeping her head up and her eyes focused on her goals. Through her experience, Munnings has learned and gained many things, but the biggest thing shes gained is her parents. My parents...we are a lot closer now. I wouldnt appreciate them like I do if I hadnt had to go through this. They mean everything to me, Munnings said. Marilyn and Roger Munnings, along with Meeshas two older siblings, will watch their daughter walk across the stage to receive her high school diploma Saturday afternoon. Every person in attendance will witness what hard-work and faith can do in the life of a high school student, both academically and spiritually.

C M Y K Graduations are wonderful rites of passage. They come c omplete with families, formal ceremonies, academic dress and emotions as varied a s joy, pride, relief, even sorrow and apprehension. In our society high school g raduation marks the exit from childhood and entrance i nto adulthood, so congratulations Class of 2011. Welcome into the world. May the rest of your life journey be filled with even m ore success. May you laugh more than you cry but when you cry, may you remember it is adversity that promotes growth and builds character. May you be persistent yet flexible; self-confident, but adaptable remembering that you wont always be right, but willing to fight for what you believe in when you are. May you dream and fulfill those dreams. May you climb onto the shoulders of those who came before you, looking ahead to what they could not see just as a future generation will one day climb your shoulders and see beyond you. In the meantime, may you create new inventions, find better ways of doing things and find fresher ways of saying things. May you remain strong and healthy, optimistic and committed to your ideals. We hope the excitement you feel on graduation day stays with you, keeping you aware of possibility, alive to the gift of life and alert to the wonders of this amazing planet. We hope a day comes when those of you who couldnt understand the need for algebra suddenly find yourselves putting what you learned to practical use or that those of you who wondered why you had to learn about people long ago dead suddenly discover resonance in those older voices. May you continue to learn and grow. We believe in you, Class of 2011. We expect you to find a few new answers and pose a few new questions. We are confident you will be caring and engaged citizens. We count on you to pick up the reins of leadership when that time comes. These next years will be increasingly challenging as you accept more responsibility and take greater control over your own lives. Dont give up. We will follow your progress, cheering you on, bragging about all you do well, and supporting you when you fail. Having been your age once, and in your exact position, we know how much more surprise lies ahead. Life has more twists and tur ns than the biggest roller coaster. Most of us never end up where we thought we were headed, so relax, stay open and enjoy the ride. Y ouve survived high school. Youll be just fine.

I had to put my newspaper down the other day after reading an article about six brave soldiers who recently joined the ranks of the forever young after an improvised explosive device went off in Afghanistan May 26, 2011. Its been a long ten years. War is not for the fainthearted, nor is it for the impatient. I am guilty on both counts, but believe I am not alone in my feelings as I come to understand that the cost of war expands far beyond Americas diminishing treasure; our blood investment must indeed reap benefits beyond an an eye for an eye. We are better than that. With scant media reports about the positive impacts of our presence in Afghanistan, its easy to fall prey to a feeling of hopelessness regarding our operations there. Acursory glance at Afghanistan seems to project a dysfunctional nation infested with godless, faceless, soulless lunatics who will stop at nothing to "kill all infidels." This type of generalization makes us worse than our enemy because we know better. It is far too easy to politicize a war. Those who believe that we should cut and run, reveal their own cowardice and give no thought to the ramifications thereof the certain and absolute loss of untold innocent lives. Think: Cambodia Vietnam. Now is not the time for Tuesday morning water cooler discussions about what couldve, shouldve or wouldve been done yesterday. We are where we are, and must see things as they are today. We must also see the faces of real Afghanis trying to make a difference. Skin in advertising sells magazines the same way bad news sells newspapers. I had to search far and wide for good news regarding our military presence in Afghanistan, and found it at a little known website at www.goodafghannews.com: This spring, 32 Afghan students, including eight women, made history as the first graduating class of American University of Afghanistan. Ambassador to Afghanistan, Karl Eikenberry, gave the keynote speech, and a video message recorded by former First Lady Laura Bush, well-known for her work to promote equality and quality of life for Middle East women, was played during the ceremony. New schools and universities are not the only things to sprout up throughout Afghanistan. New hospitals and airports are in process as well as the rebuilding of canal systems and wells that were utterly destroyed during the Soviet invasion in the 1980s. Once rebuilt, Afghanistan will have the ability to provide food, water, healthcare and transportation for its people, and boost its economy with new jobs and exports. The beverage industry in Afghanistan is growing at 30 percent annually and PepsiCo is building a $60 million plant in Kabul to distribute Pepsi products, which will create 800 additional jobs. Although it seems that for every step forward, we take two back, in reality, we are slowly winning Afghani hearts and minds. The International Council on Security and Development completed a recent survey of 1400 representatives throughout Afghanistan that found our military achievements unquestionable, with the majority believing that NATO and the Afghan government are winning the war. Enjoying a cold Pepsi in Kabul or a woman graduating from college cannot make up for the loss of a single soldiers life, but these events remind us, and the Afghan populace we're not just there to kill Bin Laden, we're there to save a people from the grip of the savages among them who checked out of humanity a long time ago. And for that, the sacrifice is not in vain. Getting lost in the darkness of war has a tendency to overshadow its purpose, and sometimes we need to be reminded why it is good to take the next step forward. In his Lord of the Rings trilogy, author J.R.R. Tolkien amply explained why, when his character, Sam, encouraged his buddy Frodo to continue in the fight. Tolkien wrote, By rights we shouldnt even be here. But we are. .it is only a passing thing, this shadowa new day will come theres some good in this worldand its worth fighting for.

Guest Column Tom Purcell Good foster parents come from different walks of lifeEditor: During the month of May, agencies, organizations, businesses, media and others throughout the nation joined together in events, celebrations and public awareness activities highlighting the importance of May being Foster Care Awareness Month. Here locally we have been working very hard to redesign our local foster care system and provide our local foster parents with quality training, and support, and we are committed to treating all of our local foster parents as valued partners. We have more than 165 family foster homes in Highlands, Hardee and Polk counties that open their hearts and homes to children every day to provide love, nurturing, stability and support to our local children who have experienced trauma. Our local foster parents are amazing and help heal one child at a time. We appreciate them so much. The trauma a child experiences when they come into foster care must be recognized and understood. Those of us that are partners working in the field of child welfare whether we are a case worker, investigator, mental health provider, school employee, or foster parent must be committed to surrounding children with opportunities for them to build healthy relationships and be nurtured so that they can begin to heal from the trauma they have experienced from the abuse and/or neglect. To be a foster parent one doesnt have to be bigger than life, own a huge home, drive a big minivan, be a doctor, be married, etc. Our local foster parents are diverse and come in all shapes and sizes. Heartland for Children would like to talk with you if you have ever thought about being a foster parent. Could you share your family and home with a child? Please give us a call at (863) 519-8900 ext. 289 or visit us at www.heartlandforchildren.org and we will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

The Avon Park Air Force Jr. R.O.T.C, along with Major Galloway presented the colors followed by the singing of the national anthem.

EAA helps local students By BEN FELLER APWhite House CorrespondentWASHINGTON President Barack Obamas top lawyer at the White House is resigning to return to private practice and represent Obama as his personal attorney and as general counsel to Obamas re-election campaign. Bob Bauer will be replaced by his top deputy, Kathy Ruemmler, a former assistant U.S. attorney best known as a lead prosecutor in the Enron fraud case. The move, announced Thursday, means Bauer, 59, will still play a central but outside role in advising a president who is seeking re-election in a time of divided government. The 40-year-old Ruemmler will take over the job as Obamas top inhouse counsel and manager of a White House law office charged with juggling the domestic, national security and congressional oversight challenges confronting the president. In a statement, Obama praised Bauer as a friend with exceptional judgment who will remain a close adviser. As to his new White House-based counsel, Obama said: Kathy is an outstanding lawyer with impeccable judgment. Together, Bob and Kathy have led the White House Counsels office, and Kathy will assure that it continues to successfully manage its wide variety of responsibilities. Bauer has been part of Obamas circle since Obama was a freshmen senator in Washington, and now returns to the campaign counsel role he had when Obama ran in 2008. He has long been a go-to lawyer for Democrats on matters of political law and is married to Anita Dunn, a Democratic communications operative who formerly worked in Obamas White House. Bauer will leave his White House post at the end of June. publix 2x16 poshe day salon 2x2 Bauer leaving, Ruemmler in as White House counsel

C M Y K By SETH BORENSTEIN APScience WriterHOUSTON And now there is only one. With Wednesdays landing of Endeavour, just one more space shuttle flight remains, putting an end to 30 years of Florida shuttle launches and more than 535 million miles of orbits controlled at Houstons Johnson Space Center. Now a sense of melancholy has permeated the community that calls itself the space shuttle family. George Mueller, the man considered the father of the space shuttle, explained why hes not going to watch the final launch next month. Its like going to a funeral. Im never enthusiastic about funerals, said Mueller, who at 92 is still flying cross-country to talk about space. But hes not going to Cape Canaveral to watch the liftoff of Atlantis on July 8. Neither is former astronaut Joe Tanner, who reflected the same thinking in an e-mail: I have so many absolutely wonderful memories of my 24 years at NASAthat I dont want to tarnish them by going to a funeral, if you understand what I mean. In regions that identify so closely with the space program cities like Houston, where the local sports teams are the Astros and the Rockets, and Cape Canaveral which calls itself the Space Coast and even has an area code of 3-2-1 the end of the shuttle era is an emotional punch in the gut. The emotions people describe in dozens of interviews resemble the stages of grief in psychology books: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, and Acceptance. And the shuttle program isnt dead quite yet. The grieving is totally normal; that period of bereavement that we have over this kind of loss is pretty well documented in the research literature, said Sharon Hall, head of the psychology department at the University of Houston Clear Lake which is next door to Johnson Space Center. Its kind of a transitioning en masse. Hall says the fact that the community is going through it together will help speed up the healing process, along with a natural human resilience. It helps that the phrase space shuttle family is more than just management-speak, she said: They are so supportive of each other, very protective, all the characteristics you associate with a family. From orbit Monday, Endeavour Commander Mark Kelly, pilot Gregory Johnson and astronaut Drew Feustel all used the word bittersweet to describe their feelings. Itll be sad to see it retired, Kelly said. But we are looking forward to new spacecraft, new destinations. Were all excited about the future. Some people are trying to bask in the remarkable achievements of the shuttle program, like launching and fixing the Hubble Space Telescope and building the International Space Station. Houston Mayor Annise Parker, who talked about how space is part of her citys inner and now hurting psyche, said, I feel like its a wake. We celebrate the good stuff. family descended on Blacksburg, Va., for the graduation of 2nd Lt. Erin McEvoy, 22, from Virginia Tech. The day before, she graduated from the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets and was sworn into the Army by Connor, who had been read the oath by Riley two years earlier. Now the proud father of three American soldiers, Joe gave his little girl her first salute. Erin, a military intelligence officer with the 1st Cavalry Division, will soon head to Fort Hood, where her father would have been stationed before a deployment to Iraq. Through trial and tribulation, the scariest moment of Debs life gave way to the proudest. It was probably the happiest day of my life, she said. I say that because both my boys were home safe and my daughter finished her college career. Were all happy, were all healthy. Not a day goes by that Deb isnt thankful for her familys blessings. It breaks my heart to hear about families that arent able to welcome their soldier home the way they had hoped to, the military spouse and mother said poignantly. Our family is lucky, and I am very grateful. America is lucky, as we should all feel grateful to live in the same country as even one family like the McEvoys, let alone 1 percent of our population, which volunteers to defend us. Their commitment to service is strong, substantial and quintessentially American. As members of this family of heroes salute one another, they salute the flag with astounding vigor.

I live down the road, over in Eures, and I heard it. My friend was passing by and she texted me You have to go check out the wreck up the street from you., McPherson said. The impact from the truck knocked a pillar from the sidewalk that landed beneath the parking area, nearly 30 feet from the vehicle.

Continued from page 2A POLICEBLOTTER By STEPHEN SINGER Associated PressSPRINGFIELD, Mass. T he Rev. Bob Marrone was pained to see the steeple of his 137-year-old church shattered and strewn on the grass in the central Massachusetts t own of Monson, yet he knows hes more fortunate than some of his neighbors who lost their homes after tornadoes tore through the s tate, killing at least four people and injuring about 200. I can see the plywood of roofs, and see houses where most of the house is gone, s aid Marrone, pastor of The First Church of Monson. The road that runs up in front of my house ... Theres so many trees down, its c ompletely impassable. Residents of 18 communit ies in central and western Massachusetts woke to widespread damage Thursday, a day after at least two lateafternoon tornadoes shocked e mergency officials with their suddenness and violence and caused the states first tornado-related deaths in 16 years. Sens. John Kerry and Scott Brown joined Gov. Deval Patrick on a helicopter tour of the damaged areas, including Springfield, the states third-largest city. Kerry said it looked like a blast zone and was confident that federal disaster aid would be made available, particularly because of damage to businesses. Patrick said it was unbelievable that so much destruction was caused in such a short period of time. You have to see it to believe it, he said after a tour of Monson, a town of fewer than 10,000 residents near the Connecticut border. Houses have been lifted up off their foundations and in some cases totally destroyed or moved several feet. Two people were killed in West Springfield, one in Springfield and another in Brimfield, Patrick said earlier. Public health officials said about 200 people sought medical treatment for stormrelated injuries. One tornado was dramatically captured on a mounted video camera as it tore through Springfield, a city of more than 150,000 about 90 miles west of Boston. At the MassMutual Center, a cavernous event facility, the tornado terrified photographers amassed for a high school prom as it whirled outside the floor-to-ceiling windows. It looked like birds were flying out of the trees and it was rubble, said Martha V achon, of Photography by Duval of Palmer. The prom went on that night as scheduled. The storm pulverized or sheared off the tops of roofs on Main Street in Springfield. Adebris-filled funnel swept into downtown from the west, then swirled across the Connecticut River. Everything started shaking. The whole building was shaking, said Shonda Lopez. Mass. digs out after tornadoes kill 4, hurt 200 Wednesday

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comFollowing a recent shift in student-athletes signing scholarships, Lake Placids Dylan Weber-Callahan focused more on the academic aspect of the opportunity to attend and play baseball at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in Savannah, GA. It was last summer that Weber-Callahan was scouted in Atlanta by SCAD assistant Mike Croley and soon brought to Savannah to throw a bullpen session for head coach Doug Wollenburg. They accepted me last September, WeberCallahan said. And they offered a scholarship, but it took me a while to really make a decision. Thats because the school also was offering an academic scholarship, though the two offers could not be stacked upon each other. I had the option of either one, and the money was pretty much the same, he said. But I wasnt sure how hard it was going to be balancing the time between the architecture program and baseball. I realized that if it was too difficult, Id have to give up baseball but would still have the academic scholarship. Which is shrewd thinking for an 18-year old, but then, after all, his lifelong dream has been to be an architect. Since I was a little kid, I was always drawing, sketching, Weber-Callahan said. Then it was building houses, buildings and cars with Leggos. When I got older I was doing more sketching and when I got into computers, I really took it to another level of designing. So architecture was always the goal, with baseball and swimming being his athletic endeavors. I love swimming and thought about doing that in college, its such a great atmosphere, he said. But once baseball season came around, I know thats what I wanted to play. Ive been playing baseball my whole life and its my first love. I always thought I could play somewhere, maybe Division III or something. But now I have the chance at NAIA. Weber-Callahan had options, looking at FAMU and the University of Florida, but SCAD turned out to be the choice he never expected. I hadnt really even heard of it, though my younger sister has been wanting to go there for design, he said. I didnt think Id like it, but seeing other campuses, where the campus is like its own city, then seeing SCADs, which is kind of spread throughout Savannah. I loved it and it just clicked. On the baseball field, Weber-Callahan has played all over the diamond, but will focus on just pitching for the Bees who, as recently as racked up 39 wins and went to the NAIAWorld Series. Ill just be working as a pitcher, so that will give me a chance to improve, he said. (Lake Placid head coach Dan) Coomes said theyll have coaches to work specifically with me there, which you dont have at the high school level. Theyre sending me a workout program for the summer so when I get there Ill know whats expected. Im just real excited for all of this and hopefully I can find a balance between baseball and the architecture program, he continued. There are some other guys on the team in the program, so I figure, if they can do it, then I can too.

News-Sun file photo by SCOTTDRESSEL Brian Buck Rapp has been named Sebrings head baseball coach, taking over for the recently retired Hoppy Rewis. Outta the Woods Tony Young Well, I want to start off by letting everyone know that my girlfriend (now fiance), Katie Hughes, got her first turkey on her quota hunt. We enjoyed a great hunt together on public land, and I thank fellow outdoor writer Jamie Adams for sending me the slate call that helped bring two big gobblers running in on that foggy Saturday morning. But enough reminiscing. Time to get on with the business at hand. Every hunter knows you have the best chance of catching a monster buck offguard during the first part of hunting season. Thats why many of us enjoy hunting the archery and muzzleloading gun seasons and why we cant miss opening weekend of the general gun season. If you hunt public land, you should know that many of Floridas wildlife management areas (WMAs) require a quota permit to hunt during archery, muzzleloading gun and all or part of the general gun season. Aquota is the maximum number of hunters allowed on a particular WMA. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions (FWC) Quota Hunt Program prevents overcrowding on such areas and provides quality hunts. Quotas also help control game harvests. The FWC sets quotas based on an areas size, habitat, game populations and regulations. There are several types of quota permits, and most are issued by random drawing. The first-phase application period for archery, muzzleloading gun, general gun, youth, family, track vehicle, airboat and mobilityimpaired quota hunt permits runs June 1-30, so youve got all month to get em in. No costs are involved with quota permits, and during this period, you may turn in only one worksheet for each type of quota hunt. One thing to remember Apply for quota permits in June See PERMITS, Page 4B News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE Father Alvin, mother Willette, Assistant Principle Charles Williams and head coach Luther Clemons watch as Avierre Conner signs for the Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING One era ends and another is to begin as Brian Buck Rapp was named to succeed Hoppy Rewis as Sebrings head baseball coach on Wednesday. Rapp follows along the line of local products coming home to be a part of, and give back to, the community as well as following in the family coaching tradition set forth by his father Gary, a legend in Sebring coaching. A1996 graduate of Sebring, Rapp played for the Streaks under current SFCC head coach and athletic director Rick Hitt, before continuing his baseball career at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville from -. After completion of his playing career, Rapp worked toward his masters degree while serving as a graduate assistant at North Florida and went on to teach and coach at The Bolles School in Jacksonville. But the ties that bind soon started tugging at him to return home. My family was still there and my brother had moved back, Rapp said. I just wanted to move back home, be close to family and enjoy the slower pace. And so it was in that Rapp joined the Sebring baseball program under Rewis as an assistant, where hes been for the past six years. Ive learned a lot from Hoppy, and not just about baseball, he said. He taught me a great deal about managing all the different personalities youll get among a group of kids, he taught me a lot of people skills. I also learned a lot just growing up around the game, being the son of a coach, Rapp continued. I always noticed how he dealt with people and how well he was regarded in the community and thats something Ive always wanted to do. And the school couldnt be happier that hes followed his lifelong goal. Coach Rapp has a vast knowledge of baseball and he is familiar with Sebring and its rich baseball history, athletic director Terry Quarles said in a statement released with the announcement. It is wonderful to have an SHS alum return to give back to the youth of this community. Sebring is very fortunate to have him as head coach. And so with it now official, Rapp looks ahead. Im real excited, he said. Sebring has a lot of talent coming through. I cant promise anything along the lines of winning, but we will work hard, develop a work ethic and play with passion and heart. Playing like that, you will be successful, whether you win or not. I thank God for the opportunity as well as my wife, Allison, he continued. Shes the coach at home and I couldnt do this without her blessing. I asked for her support and she said to go for it. And so he did, and another era of Rapp coaching begins. Rapp named head man for Blue Streaks Weber-Callahan glad to go SCAD By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK It was his hard work and determination that finally paid off, said Willette Conner while her son Avierre Conner posed for pictures during his signing day at Avon Park High School. He loves sports, but the academics always came first, she said. Avierre, with a 4.48 grade point average, who will graduate Summa Cum Laude in a few days, decided to attend the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, CTon a full scholarship. According to media material from the Coast Guard, over 4,000 applicants apply each year to the prestigious academy, and just 300 are admitted. Just seven are chosen for the basketball team. It was a lot of work, but it is worth it, Avierre said. It was the best package and will help me to develop my leadership skills while I get to continue to play. He worked hard for this and we are very proud, said Alvin Conner, Avierres father, and one of his basketball coaches. We looked at different schools, but this one as the bast choice. The Coast Guard is the best thing. Avierre is really a team player, said Avon Park head coach Luther Clemons. This year we asked him to play a supportive role as a guard, and he did well. Last year he was a shooting guard, and it had to be hard to give up a scoring position for a supportive role, but he did. Most players would have wanted to take the shots instead of work with the team. Although he is not due in New London until July 18, Avierre will start his training program on Monday. The coach sent me the training schedule already and I have to begin the training schedule of sit-ups and pushups next week, Avierre said. Commitment made and the work begins, something Conner is obviously not averse to and is ready for. Conner signs with Coast Guard

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN Special to the News-SunSEBRING Persistence played an important role as GoinPostal held off a massive charge by JWB Logisics for a 13-10 win Tuesday night at the Max Long Recreational Complex. The strong will of Logistics would show early in the first inning. After a single by Johnny Cobb, a pre-existing knee injury was irritated as he came down on first base. After a few minutes to shake the injury, he was back to running the bases. His devotion would pay off as he later scored on Elijah Gavarretes sacrifice. Amiscommunication in the infield would later fall in his favor and, along with a passed ball, Gavarrete scored to help to settle JWBs lead at three. But leadoff hitter Jacob Cram blasted a home run to start things off strong for GoinPostal. Consecutive RBI singles from Jonathan Struck and Wil Wright continued the action, and one final two-RBI hit from Cobb would end the first inning at 8-3. The pitching staff of JWB was not to be discouraged just yet. The Logistic defense held tight and made two quick outs, but found earning the third to be a bit more challenging. After an overthrow to third, Postal was able to top the third inning at 10-3. It would seem the strong bats yet shaky defense would be the struggle for both teams. As JWB returned to the plate, a few mental errors would allow them to begin creeping in on Postals lead. As the third inning came to a close, Postals once comfortable lead was slowing decreasing. The top of the fourth brought more hope to JWB Logistics as their bats came to life again. With three men on after Michael Fords base hit, Michael Beuche was able to score off a fielding error on an infield fly. Gavarrete then ripped a grounder down the left field line that would score two more runs, closing the gap to 10-8. In the next inning, both teams started tightened their defense to not allow any more runs. JWB would rally back one more time with Jordan Austin contributing an RBI. However, Postal would also put up a fight as they approached their last at-bat. With their lead diminishing, Postal quickly responded with solid hits. This included one hit to deep right by Lou Martinez, who was stopped at the plate as he attempted an insidethe-park home run. He was still able to score one for his team with the hit as the rest of the GoinPostal lineup came to the plate. With men on, a sacrifice attempt resulted in a successful pickle at third on Logistics part. Still, their efforts would fall just a bit short. With the help of closing pitcher Martinez, the outcome saw 13-10 in Goin Postals favor. We were careful with our pitching, explained Goin Postal head coach Dean Cram. We have a big game coming up and we held our staff under their 29-pitch limit. He further explained the ruling that, if a pitcher should throw more than that amount of pitches they are not permitted to pitch in the follow ing game. We came off with the bats, but cooled down for a little, he continued. Our hitting was still strong, we just had a few mental errors tonight. though: Unless exempt, you must have an up-to-date management area permit (or a license that includes one) when applying for a quota permit, or the system wont accept your application. Two of these quota hunts are unique to the FWCs South Region. An airboat quota permit is required for anyone wishing to hunt out of an airboat on Everglades and Francis S. Taylor WMAin Broward and Miami-Dade counties. But, if youd rather hunt off a track vehicle there, or on Rotenberger or Holey Land WMAs in Palm Beach County, youll need a track vehicle quota permit. The FWC offers youth deer hunts on Camp Blanding WMAin Clay County and Andrews WMA in Levy County. If you have children age 8-15, and you want them to have the chance of experiencing one of these great hunts, apply for a youth quota hunt permit. During these hunts, only the youngsters may hunt, and they and their adult supervisors are the only ones allowed on the area. To increase hunting opportunities for youths, youngsters (under 16) may accompany an adult quota permit holder on any WMA even if the area doesnt allow for exemptions. However, in that case, adults and youngsters must share a single bag limit. This coming season, there will be family hunts on 20 different WMAs. Those areas are: Matanzas, Andrews, Devils Hammock, Dinner Island Ranch, Lafayette Creek, Allapattah Flats, Perdido River, Cary, Okaloacoochee Slough, Blackwater, Belmore, Four Creeks, Hatchet Creek, Thomas Creek Kings Road Unit, Hilochee Osprey Unit, Lafayette Forest, Babcock Ranch Preserve, Aucilla Pinhook Area, Chipola River Altha Tract and L. Kirk Edwards. You must have a family quota hunt permit to hunt these areas during specific time periods. Should your name be drawn, the permit requires one adult to take one or two youths hunting. The adult may not hunt without taking a kid along. Hunters certified by the FWC as mobility-impaired may apply for mobilityimpaired quota permits. These permits allow exclusive access to generalgun hunting opportunities on nine of the states better public hunting areas. If any of this is starting to sound exciting to you, youll want to get the correct quota hunt worksheet so you can apply for one or more of these great opportunities. All worksheets can be found at MyFWC.com/Hunting by clicking Limited Entry Hunts. Once youve completed the worksheet, you may submit it to any license agent or tax collectors office, or you may apply online at www.fl.wildlifelicense.com The random drawings to decide who gets these quota hunt permits will be posted in mid-July. To find out if youve been selected, you can go to MyFWC.com/Hunting again, by clicking Limited Entry Hunts. Tony Young is the media relations coordinator for the FWCs Division of Hunting and Game Management. You can reach him with questions about quota permits and how to apply at Tony.Young@MyFWC.com.

But amid tension between ONeal and Bryant after a loss to the Detroit Pistons in the finals, ONeal was traded to the Heat in the summer of 2 004. I often wonder how many they wouldve won if he stayed, said Johnson, the Lakers Hall of Famer. Lakers owner Jerry Buss, who decided to break up the tandem and keep Bryant, thanked ONeal for a long and amazing career, with a huge impact both on and off the court. His contributions were significant to the entire NBA, but we specifically appreciate what he did with and what he meant to the Lakers during his eight years with us, Buss s aid. We have three champio nships that we wouldnt have won without him, and we will forever be grateful for his significant contributions to those teams. After 3? years in Miami, a tenure that included his fourth NBAchampionship, ONeal became a veteran for hire, moving to Phoenix and then Cleveland and finally Boston. But he couldnt deliver another title for Steve Nash and Amare Stoudemire with the Suns, with LeBron James with the Cavaliers, or with the CelticsBig Three of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen. At each stop, he endeared himself to the fans and his new teammates with his effervescent smile and playful attitude, including the habit of adopting a new nickname he felt embodied his role with his new team. In Phoenix he was the Big Shaqtus"; in Boston, the Big Shamroq. What a career for Shaq Diesel!! James wrote on Twitter. The most dominating force to ever play the game. Great person to be around as well. Comedy all the time!! ONeal connected with more than 3.8 million followers of his Twitter account, keeping them informed of his random acts of Shaqness like sitting in Harvard Square, pretending to be a statue, or going out in drag on Halloween. But his off-court persona couldnt disguise the fact he was getting old, and while he showed he could still play with younger opponents, he couldnt manage to stay on the court with them. He missed a week in November with a bruised right knee, a week in December with a calf injury, and another in January with a sore right hip. He returned for three games a total of about 34 minutes before missing the next 27 games with what the team called a sore right leg. Although the injury was originally expected to keep him out just a few games, his absence stretched to more than two months. He returned to play in one more regular-season game, but lasted just 5 minutes, 29 seconds before reinjuring the leg and limping off the court. He missed Bostons entire first-round series against the New York Knicks and made two appearances against Miami, a total of 12 minutes, and scored two points. In all, ONeal averaged just 9.2 points, 4.8 rebounds and 20.3 minutes this season all career lows. And that left ONeal in the market for a new nickname. After announcing his retirement, he asked fans to give him a nickname that befit his retirement. He reported at about 5 p.m. that The Big 401K was the leader. I know you can do better, though, he said in another video. Im here all day. Im retired. AP Basketball Writer Brian Mahoney and AP Sports Writer Tim Reynolds contributed to this report from Miami.

C M Y K Associated PressBERLIN The number of people hit by a massive European outbreak of foodborne bacterial infections is one third higher than previously known and a stunningly high number of patients suffer from a potentially deadly complication than can shut down their kidneys, officials said Wednesday. The death toll rose to 17, with German authorities reporting that an 84-year-old woman with the complication had died on Sunday. Medical authorities appeared no closer to discovering either the source of the infection or the mystery at the heart of the outbreak: why the unusual strain of the E. coli bacteria appears to be causing so many cases of hemolytic uremic syndrome, which attacks the kidneys and can cause seizures, strokes and comas. This particular strain were dealing with now seems to be unique, said Dr. Hilde Kruse, program manager for food safety at WHO Europe: Germanys national health agency said 1,534 people in the country had been infected by EHEC, a particularly deadly strain of the common bacteria found in the digestive systems of cows, humans and other mammals. The Robert Koch Institute had reported 1,169 a day earlier. The outbreak has hit at least nine European countries but virtually all of the sick people either live in Germany or recently traveled there. The Robert Koch Institute said 470 people in Germany were suffering from hemolytic uremic syndrome, or HUS, a number that independent experts called unprecedented in modern medical history. HUS normally occurs in 10 percent of EHEC infections, meaning the number seen in Germany could be expected in an outbreak three times the size being currently reported. That discrepancy could indicate that a vast number of cases havent been reported because their symptoms are relatively mild, medical experts said.

Drug Free Highlands ... You may have come across this name a time or two in the newspaper or out and about in the community, but you are probably wondering what exactly is this and what do they do? Drug Free Highlands is a community coalition that was created in December 2003 in collaboration with The School Board of Highlands County, Highlands County Sheriffs Office and Florida Hospital Heartland Division. The mission of Drug Free Highlands is to organize, inform, educate and unite our community in its efforts to reduce substance abuse among youth. With the guidance and participation of key community leaders, Drug Free Highlands obtained its non-profit status and was successfully awarded a federal Drug Free Communities grant in September 2010. This grant supports community coalitions of youth, parents, media, law enforcement, school officials, faith-based organizations, fraternal organizations, state, local, and tribal government agencies, healthcare professionals, and other community representatives. The Drug Free Communities grant has enabled Drug Free Highlands to strengthen our coordination and prevention efforts, encourage citizen participation in substance abuse reduction efforts, and disseminate information about effective programs. The grant also provided an opportunity to hire three staff members dedicated to coalition activities. Drug Free Highlands currently has three working committees that focus on furthering the mission of the coalition. Each committee is dedicated to the coalitions role in facilitating collaboration, engaging participation, providing technical assistance and information regarding effective substance abuse prevention, changing perceptions and changing policies. Drug Free Highlands is currently working on creating a youth component that will be structured similar to groups such as SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco) and SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) with more emphasis placed on substance abuse and risky behaviors. Drug Free Highlands members will work with local youth to develop a Social Norming Campaign designed to let youth know that most Highlands County students are choosing not to do drugs, drink alcohol, etc. This campaign allows students to create their own slogans and drawings to put on T-shirts and other promotional items. It will also include a pre and post survey so Drug Free Highlands is able to collect data needed to prove the campaigns effectiveness. Some of the exciting activities we are currently involved in include developing a local ordinance to make it harder for underage kids to drink on privately owned trespassed land, and supporting and encouraging our local law enforcement to perform more compliance checks to help prevent underage sales of alcohol. Drug Free Highlands relies on committed community members, organizations, and businesses to accomplish its activities. The coalitions membership is free and open to individuals and organizations in the area that are interested in working together to develop and implement strategies to reduce substance use in Highlands County. If you are interested in learning more, or would like to get involved, join us every second Wednesday of the month at the Florida Hospital Heartland Division at 9:30 a.m. For more information on the coalition call 382-2138 or visit drugfreehighlands.org. Amanda Sherley is the project coordinator for Drug Free Highlands. She can be contacted by email at asherley@drugfreehighlands.org or by phone at 382-2138. Working together to reduce substance abuse One Stop For Drug Talk Amanda Sherley Snapshots Associated PressWASHINGTON House Republicans are pushing back against Obama administration efforts to promote healthier lunches, saying the Agriculture Department should rewrite rules it issued in January meant to make school meals healthier. They say the new rules are too costly. The bill, approved by the House Appropriations Committee late Tuesday, also questions a government proposal to curb marketing of unhealthy foods to children and urges the Food and Drug Administration to limit rules requiring calorie counts be posted on menus. The overall spending bill would cut billions from USDAand FDA budgets, including for domestic feeding programs and international food aid. The panel also cut some farm subsidies to cut spending. Republicans are concerned about the cost of many of the Obama administration proposals, which they regard as overregulation, said Chris Crawford, a spokesman for the chairman of the Appropriations Committees agriculture subcommittee, Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga. Crawford said the marketing guidelines, released last month, are classic nanny-state overreach. Though the guidelines, which would restrict which foods could be marketed to children, are voluntary, many companies are concerned that they will be penalized if they dont follow them. The bill questions whether the Agriculture Department should spend money to be part of the marketing effort. Our concern is those voluntary guidelines are back-door regulation, he said.

But it doesnt have to be this way. Rather than suffer in sniffling silence, you can say goodbye to your unpleasant symptoms with simple lifestyle changes and diet modifications. What you put inside your body can have a tremendous impact on your allergies says Dr. Fred Pescatore, author of The Allergy & Asthma Cure, as well as the bestselling The Hamptons Diet. According to Dr. Pescatore, refined sugars, flours, and processed food all trigger inflammation, so steer clear of them. Instead, look for foods containing vitamin D3, which decreases inflammation, vitamin C, which helps combat the added stress to our bodies caused by allergies, and vitamin A, which helps rid the body of mucus. It also helps to turn your home into a refuge from allergens. Preventing buildup of harmful irritants is a crucial step to breathing easy. Regularly dusting, vacuuming and washing bedding will go a long way in the fight against allergens. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of American recommends wearing a mask while you clean, and leaving it on for a few hours afterward while the dust settles. Be sure to keep your home dry. Water build-up is an invitation for mold growth. Go mold-free by hanging wet towels, fixing indoor and outdoor leaks, and using a dehumidifier. Feathered and furry creatures may be lovable and cute, but they are no friend to your sinuses. Do yourself a favor and keep Fido and Polly out of the bedroom. Irritants from the great outdoors should stay outside. After a jog through the park, or an afternoon picnic, leave your shoes on the porch and take a shower right away. You can also keep pollen at bay by closing your windows at night. And while you cant control every space in which you spend time, you can give your car the same treatment you give your home. Vacuum the interior for a comfortable commute. In addition to modifying your diet to eliminate allergy triggers, Dr. Pescatore has found that nutritional supplements can help allergy and asthma sufferers. Look for ones containing vitamin D3, vitamin C and vitamin A. Additionally, vitamin B12 stabilizes the imbalance of bacteria occurring in the guts of most allergy sufferers. Pantethine works as a natural steroid, quercetin is one of natures best antihistamines, and magnesium helps rid your body of toxins it consumes and faces daily while helping you breathe more easily. For more diet and allergy tips, visit www.drpescatore.com. Following these simple steps, says Dr. Pescatore, could mean the difference between an enjoyable spring and a typically unpleasant one for the millions of Americans who suffer from allergies and asthma. DearPharmacist: My teenage sons dermatologist suggested Accutane (isotretinoin) for acne. I looked it up on the Internet and it scared me. Can you suggest some alternatives? B.A., Orlando Any teenager dealing with acne has my compassion. Its such a difficult age, when theyre trying so desperately to be attractive to peers. Youre reservations regarding isotretinoin are spot on. The medication has potential risks including liver damage, depression, and suicidal ideation; lawyers advertise on TVin order to gain clients. Because it can increase risk of birth defects doctors wont even prescribe it to young women who could get pregnant. Alternatively, antibiotics such as doxycycline, come with their own set of risks that can lead to long-term health issues such as digestive problems, leaky gut and Candida fungal overgrowth. If you take an antibiotic long-term, you definitely need a probiotic to replenish the healthy flora. Fear not, I have a few suggestions that have every likelihood of success. My first suggestion is a skin clarifying system called TRIAthat zaps the bacteria that cause acne. The heart of this three-step acne clearing system is a blue light that penetrates the skin surface and attacks the pathogens that cause acne. This kit did a terrific job on my sons skin when he used it, and we could see results the first week. I recommend this product because it is nonmedicated, in fact, the clarifying cleanser doesnt even contain benzoyl peroxide which can be irritating to some individuals. Now, more about this blue light. It causes a warming sensation on the skin. Blue light treatments are FDAapproved and some dermatologists use this technique in their offices. The TRIA product that Im suggesting is over-the-counter, but is still professional strength. You can learn more at www.TriaBeauty.com Many dermatologists at least the ones who are behind the times still maintain that diet has nothing to do with acne breakouts. Nothing is further from the truth according to new medical studies. For more about what to eat to support beautiful, clear skin I strongly recommend picking up a copy of The Clear Skin Diet written by dermatologist Valorie Treloar, M.D., and naturopathic physician Alan C. Logan, N.D. (Cumberland House, 2007). This book does a good job of outlining what to eat (and what to avoid) to promote clear skin and it offers recommendations for dietary supplements. You could easily implement Dr. Treloar suggestion to avoid dairy products; reason being the hormones used in dairy products adversely affect skin. According to Dr. Treloar, this step alone could go a long way to clear up troubled teenage skin. One more thing, teenage acne, has been tied to low zinc. Supplements of natural zinc lozenges are inexpensive and sold at health food stores nationwide. You might also try dabbing the spots with natural 100 percent Tea Tree Oil. Did You Know? Acompound in green tea called L-theonine has just been shown to help you focus on your daily activities and stress less.

Non-medicated ways to zap zits Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen StatePoint MediaWhile pregnancy is a time of joy, it can include some inconveniences such as back pain and muscle strain. But there are many easy ways to stay healthy and relatively pain-free during pregnancy. The average weight gain of 25 to 35 pounds, combined with the increased stress placed on the body by the growing baby, may result in mild to severe discomfort for pregnant women, says Dr. Rick McMichael, president of the American Chiropractic Association. Studies show that about half of all pregnant women will develop low-back pain at some point. Expectant mothers can take steps to limit discomfort, say experts. Be safe and comfortable How you move, sit and sleep will impact how you feel. When picking up children and heavy objects, bend from the knees not the waist. And never turn your head when you lift. Sleep on your side with a pillow between your knees to take pressure and strain off your lower back. If you work long hours at a computer, make sure the screen is below eye level and use a small footrest to take pressure off your legs and feet, and get up to walk around periodically. Expectant moms should invest in multiple pairs of flat, sensible shoes. High heels can worsen the forward pelvic tilt, exacerbate postural imbalances and make you less steady on your feet, especially as pregnancy progresses. Keep your back pain-free During pregnancy a womans center of gravity almost immediately begins shifting forward to the front of her pelvis. The displaced weight increases stress on joints. As the baby grows, the womans weight is projected even farther forward, and the curvature of her lower back is increased, which can cause back pain. Many pregnant women have found that chiropractic adjustments provide relief from back pain brought on by pregnancy. Chiropractic manipulation is safe for pregnant women and their babies and can be especially appealing to those trying to avoid medications. Chiropractic is a conservative form of health care, explains Dr. McMichael. We focus on the whole person and reduce pain and improve function naturally, without drugs. Get enough exercise Gone are the days when bed rest was considered the most sensible activity when pregnant. Nowadays, doctors know moderate exercise can help prevent excessive weight gain, reduce risk of gestational diabetes and preeclampsia, prepare the body for childbirth and reduce back pain. Walking, swimming and stationary cycling are relatively safe cardiovascular exercises for pregnant women because they dont require jerking or bouncing. Before starting an exercise plan, consult your medical or chiropractic physician. Stop exercising immediately if you notice unusual symptoms, such as bleeding, dizziness, nausea, blurred vision, increased swelling or heart palpitations. Pregnancy brings amazing changes to a womans body and regular hands-on care can help your body adjust to these changes, says Dr. McMichael. Taking care of yourself is the best way to ensure you enjoy your pregnancy as much as possible. For more tips on staying healthy, visit www.acatoday.org/patients.

On the morning that I was scheduled for surgery at 8 a.m. at the Ocala hospital, we found ourselves in heavy going-towork traffic. At the first traffic light on the edge of town, the four-lane highway widens to six lanes. We were in the middle lane of the northbound lane when the traffic light turned green. As I pushed on the accelerator pedal, the engine died and refused to start. We were blocking the middle lane and cars, pickups and semi-trucks were rushing by on both sides; we were helpless. I crawled from the car to see if there was any possible way I could get the car off the road. The situation looked desperate. Suddenly an angel appeared in the guise of a woman. She stopped her lane of traffic and asked if she could help. Aquick decision was made that she would take me to the hospital while my wife stayed with the disabled car. Would you believe that this young woman worked in the insurance office of the hospital next to the admitting office where I was supposed to check in within the next 10 minutes? No sooner had she whisked me away than a second angel appeared in the form of a young man who had my wife steer the car across the outside lane of traffic onto the grass. He then went off and phoned the AAAClub to send help. As often happens in times of great stress, we failed to get the names of these angels. There are many who would say that these folks were not angels and that it was just a coincidence that the right people stopped to help. However, I read some time ago that a coincidence happens when the Lord has just performed a miracle and wishes to remain anonymous. Praise the Lord!

Continued from page 7B RELIGION Church News Associated PressSAN ANTONIO Afederal judge in South Texas has banned public prayer at a high school graduation ceremony after the agnostic parents of a senior went to court. The ruling from Chief U.S. District Judge Fred Biery in San Antonio came as Medina Valley High School in Castroville prepares for Saturdays graduation. Bierys order, released Tuesday, was in response to a lawsuit filed by Christa and Danny Schultz on behalf of their son, Corwin, to block use of prayer. The judge says speakers cannot call on audience members to bow their heads, join in prayer or say amen Assistant Superintendent Chris Martinez says school officials will follow the order against public prayer, but they do not believe the district has done anything wrong.St. Augustine Diocese gets new bishopJACKSONVILLE Two ceremonies that are part of the installation of the new bishop for the Roman Catholic Diocese of St. Augustine will be invitation only. Monsignor Felipe Estevez will become the head of the diocese that serves about 171,000 Catholics in 17 Florida counties. An evening prayer ceremony Wednesday at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine and an installation ceremony Thursday at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Jacksonville will both be invitation only due to the size of the churches. The installation will be broadcast live on television and online. Information is available at www.dosafl.com. Estevez left Cuba in 1961 when he was 15 as part of Operation Pedro Pan. He was among roughly 14,000 Cuban children whose parents sent them out of the country.Prosecutors release $33 million from Vatican Bank V ATICAN CITY Prosecutors ordered the release Wednesday of $33 million seized from a Vatican Bank account last year in a moneylaundering probe. The Vatican welcomed the move and said the funds were ordered returned after the Holy See issued new anti-money laundering and antiterror financing laws to conform with EU and international norms. Italian financial police seized the money in September 2010 as a precaution and placed the bank's top two officials under investigation. Texas judge: no prayer at high school graduation

C M Y K If you read my last article, From the Pit to the Palace you may recall w hat God allowed Joseph to go through with his b rothers. His brothers resented him and hated him b ecause their father showed favoritism toward Joseph. However, God had a purpose and a plan in which Joseph would arise above a ll that the Lord allowed him to go through so that he would be able to reign as king in the palace. Romans 8:28 says And w e know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.Those who read last weeks article may be wondering what ever happened to Josephs brothers or maybe what Joseph might have felt toward his brothers as result of what they did to him. Genesis explains how God worked everything out between Joseph, his Father, and his brothers. Genesis 41:56 tells of the large famine throughout the earth. People were commanded to go to Joseph as he would be able to open the storehouses to sell grain to those in need. Jacob sent his sons to Egypt to by some grain. Lets keep in mind that much time had passed, and Joseph was a different person than when he was living with his father and brothers. When Josephs brothers approached him to buy grain, they bowed before him. They did not recognize him, but Joseph recognized them and treated them like strangers. He spoke in a very authoritative manner toward them (Genesis 42:68). Could you imagine all the thoughts that could have rolled through Josephs mind when he saw his brothers face? Some of us could have the tendency to become very angry and harbor hatred because of the cruel act. In Genesis 45, Joseph revealed himself to his brothers, and this passage gives us a clear indication of Josephs response to his brothers after all they had done to him. He introduced himself to them privately. Verses 3-8 implied that Joseph was very gracious toward his brothers. The first question he asked brothers was whether or not his father was still living. They had a hard time answering because for all they knew their brother had been sold as a slave. Joseph asked them to come closer and he said to them in verse 5, I am Joseph your brother, whom you sold into Egypt. But now do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life. Joseph explained to his brothers that God also had sent him before them so that they would prosper and to save their lives by great deliverance. Verse 8 shows Josephs ability to have seen the Lords hand in all that had taken place. He was able to realize that God was in control of all that had occurred. In verse 8, Joseph said, So now it was not you who sent me here, but God; and he has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. After the death of Josephs father, his brothers were then afraid that Joseph would hate them. They were afraid that Joseph would repay them for all the evil they had done to him. Keep in mind, Joseph had been promoted to such a high position. He was human and could easily taken advantage of this. He could have taken revenge and had his brothers killed, but he was very forgiving. In Genesis 50:19-21 he assured his brothers of his love toward them and said, Do not be afraid, for am I in the place of God? But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive. Now therefore, do not be afraid; I will provide for you and your little ones. The story of Joseph reminds us again of what true humility is, and how we have a choice in how we can respond in difficult situations where we have felt mistreated by others. God has a great plan for each of our lives, and a purpose behind every circumstance He brings into our lives. What the enemy may mean for evil in our lives, God means for our good and His glory. And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the call according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). Leslie Deese is a Sebring resident.

C M Y K By DAVID GERMAIN APMovie WriterMutants, it seems, are only as good as the creators assembling their chromosomes. And the mad scientists behind X-Men: First Class are real artists in the laboratory. Director Bryan Singers first two installments of the X-Men trilogy were superior adventures, about as smart and provocative as comicbook adaptations are likely to get. After Singer left, the trilogy wrapped up with a dud, followed by a limp spinoff chronicling the origins of fan-favorite mutant Wolverine. Now Singers back as a producer and idea man for First Class, a prequel that presents a clever, cohesive, exhilarating big-screen take on how those Marvel Comics mutants came together on opposing sides in the evolutionary battle. Matthew Vaughn, another filmmaker adept at blending smarts and action (Stardust, Kick-Ass), was wisely recruited as director and co-writer. The result is one of the best Marvel adaptations, packed with action, humor, retro 1960s style thats both campy and sexy and a revisionist history lesson that puts the X-Men at the center of the Cuban missile crisis. The young cast led by James McAvoy and Michael Fassbender is no match for Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen and the rest of the grand ensemble Singer enlisted for the first X-Men flick in 2000. Yet McAvoy has playful energy and unshakable nobility, while Fassbender captures slow-burning wrath and unflinching pragmatism, which nicely prefigure Stewarts august Professor X and McKellens dogmatic Magneto. Despite a jumble of screenwriters that includes Vaughn, writing partner Jane Goldman and Thor scribes Ashley Edward Miller and Zack Stentz, First Class is a focused, coherent story. Thats all the more admirable given the large cast, whose stories are woven together with enough immediacy and clarity that even Marvel newcomers can follow along without a playbill. Were introduced to McAvoys telepath Charles Xavier and Fassbenders Erik Lehnsherr, who can manipulate magnetic fields, as boys in the 1940s. Their vastly different upbringings underscore the differences that eventually will turn them from best friends to bitter rivals. Charles grows up in a rich, privileged home, believing hes a freak of nature, the only one of his kind, until he meets shape-shifting mutant Raven (Jennifer Lawrence), the future Mystique character originated by Rebecca Romijn in the X-Men trilogy. Raven and Charles forge a foster-sibling relationship, while Erik, a Polish Jew, suffers unspeakable tragedy during the Holocaust as the Nazis try to unleash the boys power to control metal. Charles and Erik team up in the early 1960s as part of a CIAoperation against Sebastian Shaw (Kevin Bacon), a mutant who can absorb explosive energy and aims to set off a nuclear war to wipe out humanity so his kind can inherit the Earth. Bacons a lot of fun, clearly having a blast playing the U.S. against the Soviets as puppetmaster of Armageddon. Shaw is aided by bad girl telepath Emma Frost (January Jones, whos stunning in her skin-tight Bond girl-style outfits and adopts a suitably icy demeanor). Among those initially fighting for the good guys are intrepid CIAagent Moira MacTaggert (Rose Byrne), her nameless team leader (a sadly under-used Oliver Platt), and mutants Beast (Nicholas Hoult), Banshee (Caleb Landry Jones), Havok (Lucas Till) and Angel (Zoe Kravitz). But allegiances change, and the point of the prequel is to spell out who switched sides and why. At the heart is the break between Charles and Erik, and the filmmakers, clearly plotting a prequel trilogy, leave plenty of loose ends to tie up and a lot of room to introduce more XMen mutants down the line. The story also leaves off around the time the civilrights movement starts to pick up steam, so the franchises parallels between human racism and bigotry against mutants are bound to gain new resonance. Many key questions about the mutants Magnetos helmet, Professor Xs wheelchair and his telepathicamplifying machine are explained. The film also features a couple of amusing cameos by stars from the XMen trilogy. The visual effects are solid, though nothing spectacular. Where the film really shines is in the design, taking the cheesy aesthetic of early James Bond films and doing the s up right with all the glam todays big studio bucks can buy. If the studio can keep Singer, Vaughn and the rest of the First Class team together, theres a chance that this X-Men trilogy could evolve into a better one than the original. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, June 3, 2011Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; 6/3/11 DIVERSIONS DearAbby: I am a teacher with a dilemma. I have taught for 10 years and connected with thousands of former students. With the Internet and social networking, I am able to keep in touch with many of them. I enjoy knowing what theyre doing in their college careers and beyond. One student Ive kept in touch with recently admitted his romantic love for me. Kyle is now in his 20s and on his own. As his teacher 10 years ago, Id never have dreamed of this happening. Whats difficult is I think I reciprocate those feelings. I never expected the man I connect with most to be a former student, but Kyle is an adult and I know him as such. Im not sure what to do. Im aware of my professional boundaries as a teacher and would never cross those lines with a student or minor. What do you do when your former student is an adult, you live in a small town and youre drawn to each other? This could be the love Ive been waiting for my entire life. Would it be totally inappropriate if I followed my heart? Wondering in W yoming DearWondering: No. Because Kyle is an adult, and when he was your student there was no flirting (I presume), I see nothing unethical about pursuing the relationship. However, if your romance becomes fodder for gossip and it very well might you should be prepared to relocate. DearAbby: I went to the zoo with my daughters class as a chaperone. While we were there, I saw several children begin climbing the walls of some of the exhibits. They were not part of the group from our school. I promptly asked the children nicely not to climb on the exhibits for fear they would hurt themselves or fall in. Aparent who heard me ask her son to get down began yelling and cursing at me in front of my daughter and the other children. I said, Im sorry, and walked on. I dont feel I did anything wrong. I was trying to warn the boy that what he was doing was dangerous. Did I do the wrong thing? Or should I have talked to a member of the zoo staff about what happened? Please advise what you would do if someones child did what I witnessed. Vigilant Parent in Oklahoma City DearVigilant Parent: Candidly, I probably would have reflexively done exactly what you did get the child out of harms way. However, the prudent way to handle a situation like the one you encountered would have been to alert the zoo staff or security personnel so they could handle it. DearAbby: In our golfing circle theres a single, 47-year-old professional woman with two children. We thought we knew her. Come to find out, she has been involved for the last five years with a married man who has a child. W ere uncomfortable having her around us now. None of us is perfect, but a woman who would take anothers man and wreck a home is one thing most women cant stand. What, if anything, should we do? Teed Off in Alabama DearTeed Off: Before deciding what to do, talk privately with the woman, tell her what you have learned and hear what she has to say about it. After that, youll know what (or what not) to do. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

X-Men prequel is first-class affair By DAVID BAUDER APTelevision WriterNEWYORK Another television season is in the books for the major broadcast networks, a nd the results may sound familiar. CBS finished the 20101 1 season last week as the nations most-watched television network for the e ighth time in nine years, the Nielsen Co. said on W ednesday. Fox won its seventh season in a row among the youthful 18-to4 9-year-old demographic closely watched by advert isers. The countrys favorite TVshow was Foxs American Idol for the eighth straight season. V iewership was down for each of the four b iggest broadcast networks, Nielsen said. CBS averaged 11.6 million v iewers in prime-time (down 2 percent from last s eason), Fox had 9.8 million viewers (down 2 percent), ABC had 8.5 mill ion (down 1 percent) and NBC had 7 million (down 15 percent), Nielsen said. Much of NBCs decline was because the network b roadcast the Winter Olympics last season; take away sports and NBCs prime-time decline was 3 percent. The ratings also indicate how broadcast televis ion is increasingly seen by viewers as a home for b ig events. Some of televisions most popular programs had bigger audiences this year than the year before, i ncluding American Idol, despite the loss of Simon Cowell, ABCs Dancing With the Stars, NBCs Sunday Night F ootball and CBS NCIS. The Super Bowl, aired on Fox, set an all-time record with more than 111 million viewers. CBS had the five most popular dramas on television, each a crime-solving procedural (NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, The Mentalist, Criminal Minds and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation). The network also had the two most popular comedies in The Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, the latter despite a Sheen-shortened season. Only the writers strike-affected 2007-08 season, won by Fox, stopped CBS from a nine-year winning streak.

The countrys leading Spanish-language network, Univision, saw its prime-time audience increase by 6 percent this season over last. The final week of the TVseason was left largely to the conclusion of TVs two biggest competition shows American Idol and Dancing With the Stars with many other series already in repeats. The final Idol of the season had 29.3 million viewers.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Friday, June 3, 2011 OUT NOWBridesmaids (May 13)Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph team up, and big and bawdy laughs abound. This is the perfect girls night or date night, so long as you head into the theater expecting the jocularity producer Judd Apatow does best (Knocked Up, The 40-YearOld Virgin). If you can get past the occasional grossout joke, youll be rewarded with huge belly laughs as the film culminates.Everything Must Go (May 13, limited release)Will Ferrell portrays a man on the brink, battling alcoholism, and he does so with aplomb. Areal treat for those who loved the Saturday Night Live stalwarts dramatic work in Stranger Than Fiction, Everything Must Go is a worthy addition to your summer movie schedule.The Hangover Part II (May 26)Great comedies dont tend to yield spectacular sequels, which makes the wolf packs far-flung adventure to Bangkok all the more audacious. Can history repeat? Will it work? Should they truly call them floories? Heres hoping we all find out the answers together!Kung Fu Panda 2 (May 26)Never fear, children have their own frivolity to look forward to this summer. The voices of Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman and Angelina Jolie are back in action, ready for kung fu! Experts in escapist animation, Dreamworks provides a natural counterbalance to Pixars more sentimental fare.The Tree of Life (May 27, limited release)Enigmatic director Terrence Malick always delivers deliberate and evocative cinema. Sometimes the result is majestic (The Thin Red Line), while occasionally the work is more germane (The New World). Still, as he only averages a couple of films a decade, hes always worth a watch, especially when he nabs Brad Pitt and Sean Penn for leading roles.JUNEX-Men: First Class (June 3)There are four superhero options this summer but only one was directed by Matthew Vaughn of Stardust and Layer Cake fame. Vaughn is a rangy director, and if anyone can survive taking the XMen back to the origins, it will be him.Beginners (June 3, limited release)Ewan McGregor and talented French actor Melanie Laurent take a crack at explaining the magic and cynicism that hangs over the outset of every relationship. Bonus: AJack Russell terrier plays a prominent (and hilarious) role.Super 8 (June 10)J.J. Abramshomage to Steven Spielberg, produced by Steven Spielberg, looks to be Goonies meets E.T. meets Stand by Me. The only summer film with a legitimate chance to stand the test of time, Super 8 has stylish mystery in abundance.Buck (June 17, limited release)Summer doesnt have to be all about explosions and car chases. For instance, heres a compelling documentary about an empathetic horse trainer just to keep things interesting. Its the perfect remedy for the superficial vibe of summer.Bad Teacher (June 24)Fans of Bad Santa will find this dark comedy in the same vein, as Justin Timberlake, Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz team up for laughs. Though it looks extremely Rrated, it also looks to be chasing extreme amounts of levity.JULYLarry Crowne (July 1)Its a simple equation. Tom Hanks plus Julia Roberts in a modern romantic comedy is likely to equal captivating. As were never going to get a sequel to Forest Gump, we will have to pin our entertainment hopes here instead.Transformers: Dark of the Moon (July 1)Speaking of hope, most summer movie fans have given up hope the third Transformers will be anything nearing transcendent. At this point, the real bright spot is that director Michael Bays robot franchise probably cant get any worse. Thats got to count for something.Winnie the Pooh (July 15)Disney hopes to capture both your nostalgia and an entirely new generation of fans. John Cleese and Craig Ferguson are modern additions to the beloved classic, and the trailer already has fans fondly reminiscing.Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (July 15)Saying goodbye to the Potter franchise isnt going to be easy, but this action-packed 3-D film hopes to send the series out on a high note. Given the track record of the previous seven films, all signs point to massive hit.Cowboys and Aliens (July 29)Sci-fi Westerns never have gotten their full due as a genre. Until now. Seeing Harrison Ford and Daniel Craig battle galactic baddies should be the ultimate in popcorn fun.AUGUSTThe Change-Up (Aug. 5)If it didnt have Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds, the switcheroo premise would be an active contrivance. But Reynolds and Bateman have proven to be particularly likable, so audiences should be willing to take the ride with them.Rise of the Planet of the Apes (Aug. 5)The very definition of cheesy action fun, James Francos latest summer offering should be one of the last big boxoffice draws, and a chance at redemption for his underwhelming Academy Awards performance. Minutes or Less (Aug. 12)Jesse Eisenberg needs to get out from under the shadow of Mark Zuckerberg, and fast. This comedy about a pizza boy caught up in a bank heist should fit the bill nicely.Conan the Barbarian (Aug. 19)Theres very little reason to think the latest take on Conan the Barbarian will deliver. This, oddly, is precisely why it should play well with an audience coming down from a massive summer movie binge.Our Idiot Brother (Aug. 28, limited release)Paul Rudd wowed audiences at Sundance with this sentimental (but raucous) family comedy. Its more Family Stone than Hangover, the perfect film to consider as you shake the sand out of your shorts.BREAKOUT STARSOLIVIAWILDEYouve seen her in Tron: Legacy and House. Now comes the big summer splash, with Cowboys and Aliens and The Change-Up seeking to deliver her into the rarest of air as a crossover action-comedy star.JASON MOMOAJason Momoas turn at Khal Drogo on HBOs Game of Thrones has proven that hes a physical force in the action game. Now he gets his shot at the iconic Conan the Barbarian. Hey, it worked for Arnold!TYRESE GIBSONThe Fast and Furious series keeps steaming along, and Tyrese is perfectly positioned for the new heist vibe they are shooting for. Plus, hes back to reclaim his role as Robert Epps in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Could this be the summer Gibson makes the leap to leading man?KRISTEN WIIGShes made us laugh since 2005 on Saturday Night Live, so its good to see her get a shot to carry her own feature film. Bridesmaids is possibly the funniest film of the summer, so Wiig should have her choice of projects going forward. BOXOFFICE SIZZLERSBYLAREMYLEGELFILM.COMSuperheroes charge into movie theaters this summer, but will they rule the box office? An animated kung fu panda and a gaggle of bawdy bridesmaids may prove worthy opponents. Heres your front-row ticket to the seasons hottest flicks:
