Gayle Moran, 69, was last seen on at her home at 125 Lime Road N.E. in the Placid Lakes Lake. According to the website, www.helpfindgaylemoran.co m, Moran was in bed when her unidentified daughter checked on her at approximately 2:30 a.m. on July 30. Moran, whose nickname was Clarkie, was described as being disoriented, according to the website, and her daughter asked if she wanted medical attention. Moran indicated that she was OK, but when the daughter checked again at 3:45 a.m., Moran was missing and so was her 2006 red Nissan Murano. At the time of Morans disappearance, her husband was terminally ill and was receiving in-home care. He died on Aug. 12, 2009, the website reported. Morans skeletal remains were discovered in a densely wooded area off of U.S. 441 approximately 16 miles south of Okeechobee, according to a press release Thursday from Highlands County Sheriffs Office Public Information Officer Nell Hays. The release stated that the Martin County Sheriffs Office was contacted and subsequently the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the accident scene.

Rick Scott on Tuesday. Scott made a campaign promise to support a requirement forcing those seeking welfare benefits with the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) to pay for drug testing, and he followed through with his promise by signing House Bill 353. While there are certainly legitimate needs for public assistance, it is unfair for Florida taxpayers to subsidize drug addiction, Gov. Scott stated in a press release. This new law will encourage personal accountability and will help to prevent the misuse of tax dollars. According to Elizabeth Arenas, Central Region public information officer of the Department of Children and Families, the law could affect 448 families in Highlands County. We dont have the policy yet, that comes from Tallahassee, and we should get that soon. It does not affect those collecting food stamps, as far as I know, just those on the TANF program, Arenas said. The new law states that those seeking assistance will be sent out to a testing facility where they will have to pay for a drug test, which is estimated to be between $10 and $40 by the DCF. If the individual passes the drug test, they get reimbursed for the costs and are eligible to receive benefits under the TANF program. If an applicant fails the drug test, they become ineligible for assistance for one year. Asecond failure could disqualify the applicant from receiving benefits for three years. TANF recipients are eligible for cash assistance for a lifetime cumulative total of 48 months, and their eligibility is checked every six months. Floridas American Civil Liberties Unions Executive Director Howard Simons stated in a press release on Tuesday that his organization would challenge the law.

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Dr. John A lleyne of the Highlands County Extension Service conducts tests at a demons tration field on biomass plants, looking for those m ost compatible with Central Floridas climate. This is important, because production of biomass fuels could become the new driver i n the countys economy. The questions Alleyne has t o answer are simple: How quickly does the plant grow? How much will it yield? D oes it need irrigation? Will it tolerate the cold? Will it r esist local pests? Will it behave itself, or become the 21st Centurys kudzu vine? To find out, Alleyne plants the seeds. Then he stands back and records his observ ations. It is all a part of the comp licated process breaking free from the nations dependence on foreign oil. Having discovered that plant material can be used as a n alternative fuel, the push is on to turn that potential into a practical reality. Doing this is a complicated business. It takes study, time, cooperation, funding and a willingness to risk doing something different. The first step, Alleyne said, is to find the ideal plant to grow in each region of the country. The early front runner in Florida was a species of jathropa whose fruit, when crushed, produces an oil suitable for conversion into jet fuel. The problem, Alleyne explained, was jathropa is not cold tolerant, and so is unsuitable for Highlands County. When he warned local planning leaders about this, however, there was some reluctance to accept the truth on his word alone, which is how the demonstration plantings came to be. V arieties of jathropa were planted, each one of which died back during cold snaps, losing all of their fruit. In its place Alleyne is growing varieties of kenaf, camelina, sweet sorghum, elephant grass and eucalyptus. Camelina and kenaf, in particular show tremendous Page 2ANews-SunSunday, June 5, 2011www.newssun.com DUMMY 09; 5.542"; 4.5"; Black; publishers block Kaylorand Kaylor3x1.5 Auto Accident (above lottery, late ad) Kaylorand Kaylor3x1.5 Social Security (below lottery, late ad) Pub block The News-Sun would like to remind the readers that the names listed below reflect those who have been charged with a crime, but they are all innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.

PB: Power Ball PP: Power Play Lottery Center Special to the News-SunENGLEWOOD As the summer temperatures rise, so do energy costs, but a local p rogram is helping homeowners reduce their monthly energy bills. The Weatherization Assistance Program at the Centro Campesino Farmworker Center provides free repairs and updates to homes of eligible, lowincome families in seven counties across South Florida including Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry and Highlands. The program hires local contractors to service homes whose owners are within 200 percent of the poverty guideline. Some of the services provided are weather stripping, caulking and other energy efficiency updates. The focus is on energy conservation and saving low-income residents money on utility costs, with the help of eligible contractors. One Englewood homeowner, Sharon Meeker, received a new central air conditioning unit and refrigerator after calling the program and learning that she qualified for repairs. The 67-year-old depends on food stamps and supplemental security income and says that because of the weatherization services, she has lowered her monthly energy bills by more than $30 and can now meet her payments without worry. Residents who are interested in the program should contact Centro Campesino Farmworker Center. All applicants are asked to submit eligibility information which includes: Social Security card, drivers license, proof of residence, tax information, utility bills and proof of income with a completed application so that their eligibility may be determined. We enjoy making these vital improvements available to families every day, said Diane Cantor, executive director of the Centro Campesino Farmworker Center. When families save on energy, they have more disposable income for other needs. The ARRAfunds will be expended in early 2012, so we encourage low-income families to contact our office to find out if they are eligible to receive weatherization assistance.

Program offers homeowners free energy efficiency updates By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comSEBRING Acomment by a county commissioner last week has put the Highlands County Industrial D evelopment Authority/Economic Development Councils budget on agenda for discussion at the meeting on Tuesday. I think we need to address this s ooner thank later, commissioner Greg Harris said. It is a critical time for the EDC, and I dont know what kind of hope we can give them or assurance we can give them. We are about to ask someone from out of state to take a position that may or may not be funded, and I dont know if we should talk about that now, Harris said. Krista Anderson, from Kentucky, was offered the executive director position by the EDC board last week, and according to Board member Susie Bishop ad accepted the position with knowledge of the budget season approaching. It would be good to know sooner than later, said Bishop, who was in the audience. It is my understanding that the offer has been made and accepted, and it has been made with complete openness to the candidate that position is hinging on the decision of the budget from the commission. But she is quite aware of that. Board Chairperson Barbara Stewart asked County Administrator Rick Helms to put budget discussions on the table at the last meeting in May after Harris had expressed his concerns. We are not bound by anything until we adopt the budget in September, but it would be nice to know what the staff is recommending at what level, etcetera, Stewart said. The EDC budget for this fiscal year was $255,000. Anderson is scheduled to sta rt work July 1. Commissioners will take a look at EDC budget on Tuesday Elks serving up breakfast todaySEBRING The Sebring Elks 1529 will be offering a country breakfast buffet (scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage links, hash browns, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, fruit bowl, toast, coffee, tea, orange juice, etc.) from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. today.

C M Y K What an interesting week. It provided a great deal of food for thought. Just as Governor Rick Scott required random drug testing of Florida government employees and the Florida Legislature mandated drug tests for all welfare recipients, an international commission including former presidents from a variety of nations, as well as Americans George Schultz ( secretary of state under President Richard Nixon) and G eorge Volcker (former head of the Federal Reserve S ystem) has declared the War on Drugs impossible to win. The commission then went f urther, recommending gove rnmentsshould end the c riminalization, marginalization and stigmatization of people who use drugs but do no harm to others. We are not about to argue the pros and cons of this c omplex and emotional issue. The policy of randomly testing employees without probable cause, however, raises a side matter of contention that we are willing to discuss. One of the reasons presented most forcefully by proponents of random testing, and tough Homeland Security laws, is that innocent individuals have nothing to fear. If people are not breaking the law, they should have no qualms about presenting a urine sample, for example, or having their private conversations recorded. These proponents say its a case of no harm, no foul. Now consider the kerfuffle up in Avon Park, where some city officialsconversations with the chief of police were recorded by him without their knowledge. Denizens of city hall exploded in outrage over the invasion of their constitutionally guaranteed privacy rights. Where was the probable cause, many people asked on the officialsbehalf. Keep in mind, we are not here discussing the merits of the police chiefs actions, or why he took the actions he did we are talking only about how individuals responded to becoming targets of closer scrutiny. Our point is, its always easier to be on the side of intruding into peoples lives when one is a part of the group doing the intruding. Those under scrutiny, however, even the pure and innocent, experience the situation very differently. People will always make mistakes. Some people will always to take advantage of other people. Asad few will persist in self-destruction. These are simple truths we need to remember. Ultimately, we believe that average citizens and elected officials going quietly about their business should be left alone, unless there is a specific cause for concern. Those who arouse suspicion, however whether a secretary coming back from lunch with slurred speech or a council member whose relative suddenly gets a lucrative contract cannot be surprised if they come under investigation.

I would lie awake most nights, Don snoring beside me, tossing and turning and trying to figure out how to turn off my overactive brain. This, of course, made trying to get up the next morning a lot of fun, since I was invariably sleep deprived. It got so bad that I was actually put on medication for a while in order to fall asleep. It worked thanks to the meds I fell asleep very quickly but didnt help a lot in the waking up department. I found myself groggy waking up, still shaking off the effects of the medicine Id taken hours before. After a while, my doctor agreed to wean me off the pills, and I now fall asleep most of the time without any trouble and without any medical help. But Im still dealing with the waking up thing. I know that part of it is that I am just not a morning person. You can tell me about beautiful sunrises and the lovely stillness and the cool of the air and I will just grunt and roll over in bed. I have no problem waking up after the sun has been up a while. The funny thing is, if I have a particular reason to be up say, I have to be somewhere in the morning I have no problem dragging myself out of bed. Im not particularly cheerful at first, but I can be on my feet and more or less functioning. My problems arise on days I have nothing scheduled. Of course, some of you out there think you see a simple solution: schedule something. The problem is it cant be something I schedule. Ive tried. Ive told myself, Self, we will get up and by eight oclock well be sitting in our office, writing. Self just chuckles when Im not listening, because it knows good and well that it can beat me at this game and when eight oclock comes around we will be snoozing. I am even at the point where I lay in bed arguing with myself about getting up. I suppose thats an improvement over just giving in without protest but so far it hasnt resulted in my arising when I really want to be out of bed. My youngest son James suggested I take my phone, set the alarm to five minutes past the alarm on my clock radio, and place the phone across the room. He was confident that once I was out of bed and walking, I would stay up and thus my day would start when I wanted it to, not hours later. It sounds great in theory, and I wish that I could say it worked. However, there seems to be a powerful magnet attached to my mattress, because after I stagger over to where my phone sits blaring a very annoying sound and shut the thing off, I find myself making my way back to my bed, there to argue with myself until I fall asleep. Im wondering if I will have to resort to a new kind of alarm clock that Marissa Meli writes about on www.ugo.com. According to the article, this alarm clock plays a nasty trick on you should you hit that snooze button. It starts to shred your money. I am not kidding. Theres even a picture of the clock slowly turning a $100 bill into confetti. While I wouldnt be crazy enough to feed my alarm clock that much money, I could see a stack of ones going byebye while I dream. Im hoping for a solution that doesnt cost me quite that much. Any ideas out there? Anything that will help me win the fight with Self. Warning: shes a stubborn thing. She wont be defeated easily. But maybe you know a way. Im looking forward to hearing about it. After I wake up, of course. Five more minutes, please? Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Wakey, wakey Lauras Look Laura Ware Disrespectful actionsEditor: For days the media (TV, radio, and print) hyped up Memorial Day and all those things that were going to happen in different areas. None of this media said one word that I heard or read speaking of what should be done with the U.S. flag hanging outside homes, business and governmental facilities. APresidential Proclamation was released by the White House on May 27 requesting all to fly the flag at half-staff until noon on May 30 to honor fallen service members. The disrespectful actions I am speaking about were plainly visible as I drove around Sebring about 9 a.m. Both post offices did not lower their flags and Highlands County chose to remove many flags from their flag poles rather than be troubled with the extra effort to show respect. The City of Sebring did comply fully, with one exception. Those noted above are governmental facilities. However, I did not see one bank or business that flew their flag at half-staff. To me, these actions show that these individuals are displaying the flag only for bragging rights. This allows them to go out and state that they are patriotic and support the United States, her actions, and those that defend their right to fly the flag and enjoy the freedoms that they have. However, their actions show that their support for those defending their rights is nothing but hot air. Al Bowles Sebring CMSgt, USAF (Ret)Wrongful informationEditor: I have just finished reading an e-mail from my nephew that contained an article called Washington Insider that tells an entirely different story about the Bin Laden affair than all the news reports I have read. From what I gather from the article, the raid on the compound where Bin Laden was hiding was in progress before the President knew about it. Seems that he (the President) and his close advisors were still kicking around giving approval to the idea presented by Leon Pannetta (the CIA) and since approval was slow in coming, the operation was started and completed before even the President knew of it. The raid was conducted by a unit of the Navy Seals, Delta Force, Army Rangers and a special operating unit of the Air Force. The whole group is known as the JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command). It seems that the plans were all made and submitted for approval to higher-ups, but when the delays hazarded the operation, the goahead was given by Pannetta before the President said a word. Success of the operation guaranteed no reprisals for Pannettas decision. Maybe we should put Pannettas name in the hat to run for President next time! Woodie Jackson Sebring BouquetMany helped make Bluegrass and Blueberry Festival a hitEditor: The Avon Park Rotary Club wants to thank the companies and individuals who helped to make our first annual Bluegrass and Blueberry Festival a fun experience for the hundreds who attended the festival in downtown Avon Park. Special thanks to sponsors and contributors, Avon Park Downtown CRA, Longs Air Conditioning Co., Walter Nunnallee, Nancy Nunnallee, Highlands Today newspaper, America First Heating & Air Conditioning Co., and Winn Dixie. Special appreciation is also extended to the following for their contributions of equipment, supplies and help: Avon Park Chamber of Commerce, SFCC, Florida Hospital, Long's Air Conditioning, Heartland Food Reservoir, Union Congregational Church, Avon Park Housing Authority, Bill Jarrett Ford, Maxwell Groves, and Heartland National Bank. The blueberry pies were baked by the Avon Park Youth Academy, and the blueberry muffins for the muffin eating contest were baked by the Avon Park Middle School Family and Consumer Science and Career Education class under the supervision of Ronda Stunkard. The bounce house was contributed by Liz's Cupcakes. Special workers included Beth Andrews, Cam Barnard, Cindy Mungall, Coach Andy Bonjokian, David Herbert, Garrett Andrews, Jackie Holeshoe, the Blueberry Clown, Phyllis Amos and youth from the Center for Kingdom God church. The sold-out chicken barbecue was from the grill of Master Barbecuer Bob Strenth and the Rotary crew led by John Barben. The festival was an overwhelming success in large part to the fresh blueberries, blueberry jam, blueberry honey, and plants from Milton Farms. And a special thank you to the wonderful entertainment provided by the Mountain Dew Cloggers, Highlands County Bluegrass band and the Mountain Brew trio!

PETERSBURG The tough task of guessing what hurricane season will look like could be even more difficult this year for forecasters, who wont be able to rely on the relatively predictable forces known as El Nino and La Nina. So far, forecasters are predicting that the season that began on Wednesday will be busier than normal, with as many as 18 named tropical storms, three to six of them major hurricanes. El Nino and La Nina warming and cooling trends in the ocean that can either rev up hurricanes or suppress them are expected to be essentially neutral, complicating any predictions. The last time temperatures were neutral was 2005, when hurricanes Katrina and Rita hammered the Gulf Coast with lethal results. With a strong La Nina or El Nino year, the forecast is much easier, said Dan Kottlowski, senior meteorologist at AccuWeather.com. Since we dont have a strong signal toward El Nino or La Nina, theres somewhat more uncertainty in trying to determine how strong this season will be. The La Nina effect is a cooling of Pacific Ocean waters near the equator. It decreases wind shear in the Atlantic and can give storms extra giddyap as they form. It has been linked to above-average hurricane seasons in the Atlantic. But it appears to be weakening. The opposite phenomenon, El Nino, warms Pacific waters, increases wind shear and can blow storms apart. But El Nino isnt happening this season. La Nina helped make last year the third-most active hurricane season on record, said meteorologist Jeff Masters, who writes a popular weather blog. Last year, there were 19 named storms, 12 of which became hurricanes, including Earl, which sideswiped North Carolina just before Labor Day weekend and was the first hurricane to threaten New England since 1991. The seasonal average is 11 named storms, including six hurricanes, two them major. Meteorologists say La Nina also contributed to this past winters barrage of blizzards in the northern United States, heavy summer flooding in Australia and recent tornadoes in the Southeastern U.S. But those events are no indication of what hurricane season might be like. Even though La Ninas cooling effect is expected to end by June or July, the federal Climate Prediction Center says it could continue to affect weather for months. To be sure, there were other important factors that caused last years tropical storms to form and strengthen: record warm Atlantic waters, low barometric pressure in the Caribbean Sea and favorable winds coming off Africa. Forecasters also looked at something called the multi decadal signal, or weather patterns that tend to last several decades. Since 1995, the Atlantic basin has been in a pattern of high activity. Meteorologists use all of these patterns, tools and data to predict the storm season, which runs through Nov. 30. The National Hurricane Center released its seasonal hurricane forecast May 19, while another prominent group of forecasters from the University of Colorado has already predicted that 2011 will have 16 named storms, nine hurricanes and five major hurricanes. The hurricanes could inflict more misery on places like Louisiana and Alabama that have been plagued by flooding and deadly twisters this spring. Ultimately, experts say, people should take note of the seasonal forecasts but not rely on them. Having an emergency kit and an evacuation plan is important even if the season isnt expected to be active. Said Kottlowski: You prepare for the worst, regardless of what the forecast is. Marshall Gaines, 75, recently moved from Maine to a barrier island on the Gulf of Mexico near St. Petersburg. He visited city hall and was given him a brochure on what to do to prepare for a hurricane none of which he has done yet. He said that his top hurricane-season priorities are stockpiling water and batteries, obtaining renters insurance and determining which shelters or hotels take pets in case he and his two dogs must evacuate. Im not too worried, I guess, he said. Im planning on getting the basics. Certainly, hurricanes are a possibility. Predicting hurricane season could be tough MCTphoto Hurricane Rita in 2005 was the last landfalling hurricane in Florida. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida is suing to stop enforcement of a new elections law that critics say was written to discourage voters likely to support Democrats. ACLU Florida argues in the suit filed Friday that the changes in election law must first be approved by the federal Justice Department to ensure that they arent discriminatory. The law created tighter restriction on groups that conduct voter registration drives, requires voters who change their address at the polls to cast a provisional ballot and reduces the number of early voting days. Critics say minorities are often the target of voter registration drives and that the provision that doesnt allow voters to cast a regular ballot if theyve changed addresses will disproportionately affect lower income residents and college students.Scott signs pill mills billFORTLAUDERDALE Gov.

The remains found at the accident site and later identified by the District 19 Medical Examiner as being Moran. Preliminary investigation indicates the accident took place around the time of the original disappearance, Hayes stated. It was reported that the remains were discovered by Billy Jack Cole of Canal Point, who stopped to honor the death of his cousin who had died in the same area according to the Martin County Sheriffs Office. The Martin County report states that Cole observed what appeared to be a human skull and informed another individual, Jessica Arnel, who then called 911. Martin County Deputy Anthony Grillo, who was dispatched to the scene, discovered human bones, the two titanium knees Moran was reported to have had, and what appeared to be a green pullover shirt, red underpants and dark-colored pants the same items Moran was reportedly wearing when she went missing. Grillo also discovered Morans red Nissan, which was about 80 feet from a sharp curve on U.S. 441, and Morans purse with identification. The airbags were deployed and the windshield was broken, according to the report.

C M Y K By ANNE DINNOCENZIO and CHUCK BARTELS Associated PressF AYETTEVILLE, Ark. Expanding globally and marketing to the next generation customer are Wal-Mart Stores Inc.s long-term goals, i ts CEO told shareholders Friday, but the company also needs to fix slumping domestic sales. Wal-Mart President and CEO Mike Duke outlined a five-point program at WalMarts annual meeting to help the company sell more on the Internet at home and abroad while keeping its costs and prices low. Our next-generation customer will include millions who are striving to join the emerging global middle class, Duke said. Theyre connected to the world through smartphones and social media. Theyre in charge of when they shop and how they shop, and they know who has the lowest prices. Offering consistent low prices will win the trust and loyalty of those customers, Duke said. Duke pledged that WalMart will continue to grow through also opening new stores and acquiring other retailers. This week, WalMart won approval for its $2.4 billion purchase of a majority share in South African retailer Massmart. But Duke said the worlds largest retailer will also win new customers in Chicago and New York, where WalMart has struggled to win approval to build stores. Wal-Mart is working to increase its sales presence on the Internet, particularly in China and the U.S., an effort that Duke says must extend to all countries in which the company operates. We can combine our stores, our systems and our logistics expertise into one continuous channel to drive growth and serve the next generation customer around the world, Duke said. We will play to win in this area also. Duke also promised the company would to do more to develop diverse management and keep striving for higher sustainability goals, which he said customers want to see. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, June 5, 2011Page 9A MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; main ff top right only CREATIVE FLOORS; 3.639"; 3"; Black; toma DOT'S RESTAURANT; 3.639"; 3"; Black; toma EDWARD JONES/ED BURNSIDE***; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 6/5/11 BUSINESS PRECO strongly encourages its nearly 35,000 member/consumers to create a personal hurricane plan, including an emergency food and supply kit.

Continued from page 8A Special to the News-SunSEBRING As Americans move past the economic downturn and begin considering plans for i nvesting in the coming year, many believe that technology stocks and gold will set the pace for 2011. In a recent survey from f inancial services firm Edward Jones, more than one-third (36 percent) of Americans said that they believe technology stocks will perform best in 2011. G old followed close behind with 31 percent of A mericans betting on a positive performance in 2011. While Americans believe t hat technology stocks and gold will perform the best t his year, its important that they keep a diversified and balanced portfolio despite their predictions, said Kate Warne, investment strategist a t Edward Jones. What seems likely to perform best a t the beginning of the year may stumble. Unpredictable events highlight the need for b road diversification. Gender seemed to influe nce this sentiment as 40 percent of female respondents indicated they expect t echnology stocks to perform best, while more than onethird of male respondents ( 37 percent) indicated they believe gold will be the winn er this year. Age was also a factor as nearly half of Americans (47 percent) between the ages of 18 and 34 were considerably more o ptimistic about technology stocks than those in older age brackets. Geographically, respondents in the West indicated they were more bullish on technology stock performance in 2011 than their counterparts in the rest of the country, with 42 percent responding that they are optimistic about investing in technology this year. Our research of golds performance since 1970 indicates that gold tends to fall as quickly as it rises, and over longer-term periods, it fails to match the performance of stocks as represented by the S&P500, Warne said. Our research also shows that gold tends to be considerably more volatile than the S&P500, Warne said, citing that since 1970 Edward Jones found that 35 percent of the 10-year periods measured resulted in a loss for an investment in gold, compared to a mere 6 percent for the S&P500. Optimism about golds performance was higher among respondents with lower incomes. Thirty-seven percent of those polled in the lowest income bracket (respondents whose income was less than $35,000 per year) indicated they believe gold will do best in 2011 and only 25 percent of those in the highest bracket (respondents whose income exceeded $100,000 per year) express the same sentiment. Americans also noted that they were still uncertain about the performance of blue chip stocks as only 10 percent believe those stocks will perform the best this year. Similarly, real estate stocks scored low, as only 9 percent think it will outperform other asset classes. However, respondents in the Northeast showed more optimism than their peers around the country, with 14 percent indicating they expect real estate stocks to surpass other investments. The study of 1,019 respondents, conducted by Opinion Research Corporation on behalf of Edward Jones, revealed that household income and size influenced Americans choice of stocks. Respondents with a household income of more than $100,000 believe that technology stocks will perform significantly better (39 percent) than gold (25 percent).

C M Y K The public outcry from Chicago Bulls fans, Michael Jordan fans and many basketball aficionados was loud and angry. This was, of course, last week when former Jordan teammate and fellow Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen said that while Jordan was the best scorer in NBAhistory, LeBron James might be the best all-around player. He pulled back, of course, after the backlash, proclaiming he meant to say James could become the best allaround player. My fellow Bullsfaithful may get on me about this. May? Of course they will, vociferously but I dont think Pippen needed to back off of his original statement. If Jordan is regarded by many as the best player of all time, then from a purely physical standpoint, James very well might be the bett er player. Everything that Jordan could do, physically, on the basketball court, James can do as well.

Daniel Simons then finished of the back-to-back-to-back-to-back home run streak with this rocket to right.

McPhail gets a handshake from Firemen head coach Andrew Bible after McPhails grand slam home run Thursday. By LAUREN WELBORN Special to the News-SunSEBRING Competition was high as Rotary took on Firemen at the Dixie Youth Baseball Complex Thursday evening. And it was the Firemen who would get off to a strong start and get their work done in the early going of the 5-2 win. Starting pitcher Jay Bible got things rolling in the top of the first inning, retiring the side in order. As the Firemen took their turn at the plate, leadoff hitter Alex Lopez smacked a single that went just above the outstretched arm of the Rotary left fielder. Sean Osceola added his own single and moved Lopez into scoring position. Bible then blasted a hit into left field which would be bobbled, allowing the first Firemen run to score. Kyle Helms was hit by a pitch, leaving the bases loaded for DJ McPhail who responded with his very first home run and a grand slam at that. Rotary approached their second at bat down by five Firemen, State Farm take first-round wins See DIXIE, Page 3B By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Pool Paradise has put on a power display all s eason, but took it to another level Friday in its13-1 win over JR State Farm in the Dixie Ozone City Tournament Semifinal. Sure, the team had seen back-to-back home runs numerous times this season. Heck theyd even hit three home runs in a row at least a couple of times. But in the second inning this night, they took it a step further and hit four consecutive home runs to break open a 4-1 lead and make it 10-1 on their way to the win. State Farm had actually drawn first blood on a Josh Rivera home run in the first inning. Youve got to give him credit and tip your hat to him, Paradise head coach Dean Frazier said. He put a good swing on the ball and hit it out. And it was State Farm that had been the only team to extend Pool Paradise beyond the fourth inning all season. But though they werent hammering away quite yet, the Pool boys quickly erased the lead in the bottom of the first. Trey Frazier singled to lead off the bottom of the frame and went to third on Seth Cannadys single to left. Frazier came in when Jimmy Peck reached on an error, moving Cannady to third. An errant pick-off attempt at third brought Cannady in and, with one out, Daniel Simons reached on an infield single. David DeGenaro then knocked Peck in with a hit to right before stealing second during Jan Martinezs at bat. He was then cut down trying to swipe third, but Martinez then beat out a chopper on the infield to keep the inning going. Buddy Jolly then brought Simons in and the margin stood at 4-1 heading into the second. Frazier worked around a walk to strike out the side and the power parade was about to commence. With one out and Cody Jolly on via walk and Frazier on with a double to right, Cannady lofted one that cleared the Blue Monster in right for a three-run shot. Peck then ripped one down the left field line that had enough of a slight hook that it seemed it would curl foul. But it never quite did, seeming to go though the grating attached to the right of the left-field foul pole. Similarly, Josh Crouch followed with a laser line-drive then never seemed to get more then eight feet off the ground and looked to ricochet off the left-center field fence. But it never did make contact, somehow clearing the fence a mere matter of seconds after the connection at the plate, for the third home run in a row.

C M Y K And then it was Simons, caught reaching on the pitch before, waiting back on the next offering and sending it over the fence in rightcenter to make it four in a row and making it a 10-1 game. Peck would connect again in the third, with Cannady aboard, and Crouch would triple and eventually score to provide for the final margin when play was completed in the fourth due to the mercy-rule. The 12-year olds really stepped up and did the job tonight, coach Frazier said. Weve put the time and effort in and its showing as were playing our best ball. And so the win sends Pool Paradise to the tournament title game Monday night against the Firemen. Thats the big one, Frazier said. With coach Bible and coach Helms, I expect a good game from that team. In other action Friday on the consolation side of the tournament bracket, the Elks broke out to a 3-2 lead, courtesy of a Nick Jones two-run homer. But Rotary would rally as Lukas High doubled in the fifth and worked his way around via the stolen base to tie it up at 3-3. Then, in the bottom of the sixth, Sam Davis singled to left center and soon stole second. Two outs later, Justin Bickman came through with the game-winning single to move Rotary into a matchup with State Farm for third place on Monday. By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressDALLAS The first time Chris Bosh returned to Dallas as an NBAplayer in 2003, he needed 175 tickets for family and friends. He wont get anywhere near that many on this trip home. You dont get your hands on extra tickets, Bosh said. The ticket thing, man, its something else. Especially now, in the NBAfinals. Bosh and the Miami Heat arrived in Dallas on Friday to begin prepping for Sundays Game 3 of the finals, a series thats knotted at a game apiece with the next three games all to be played on the Mavericks home floor meaning Miami will need a road win to keep its title hopes alive. And to Bosh, thats all that matters. He was a high school star in Dallas, led a team to a 400 record and a state title, but the jolt of energy that accompanied returning to his hometown as an opponent began to dim a long time ago. Its almost just like another stop on the NBAschedule now, and given the stakes the Heat and Mavs are playing for, Bosh doesnt see anything wrong with that way of thinking. My family and I have had conversations about the difference of the regular season and now, Bosh said. The thrill of playing at home is gone. I just concentrate on trying to win games. Ive been there a bunch of times, played in that arena my fair share of times. I go back all the time. Nothings changed, it looks the same, the people are the same. Thats why the thrill is kind of gone. As you get older, it becomes more of a task. Nothing compares to the task that awaits Bosh and the Heat now. Dallas fans are still smarting from seeing the Heat celebrate the 2006 NBAtitle on their floor, and theres nothing the Mavs would enjoy more than wrapping up this series and hoisting their first championship trophy on Thursday night. Dallas outscored Miami 22-5 to close Game 2, a stunning rally that rescued the Mavs from a 15-point hole and carried them to a 95-93 win. Bosh is averaging 15.5 points so far in the finals, but his shooting has been atrocious, 9 for 34. Maybe a trip home will provide a boost after all, even though Bosh has steadfastly said he will not let Dallas become a Texas-sized distraction. Hes had that all year long, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Hes a very intelligent, mature player and person. Hes able to compartmentalize things in his life and in his profession. He keeps an even keel, but dont mistake that for a lack of competitiveness. He has a burning fire inside of him. It took me a little bit by surprise. We did a lot of research about him, but hes one of the more competitive players Ive ever been around. And once you get to coach him, you realize that pretty quickly. It might be harder for Bosh to have the just-another-game approach had he been a Mavericks fan growing up. LeBron James will forever be tied to Cleveland, Dwyane Wade grew up rooting for his hometown Chicago Bulls, and trips to those cities will be emotional for those two Bosh teammates throughout the remainder of their careers. With Bosh, that doesnt seem to be the case. Truth be told, he hardly followed the Mavs as a kid, focusing more on individual players instead. They struggled, Bosh said. They struggled for a number of years and they always tried different formulas. They always went to the drawing board and when things didnt work they just kept trying, kept trying, kept trying until about 10, 12 years ago they really started to turn the curve. When Bosh played his first NBAgame there with Toronto on Dec. 15, 2003, he was nervous. He missed a dunk in the first minute before settling down, and got a bit embarrassed by a video montage that played in the arena that night. I was 19. I was a year removed from home, Bosh said. It was my first NBA game at home. They played a little tribute. It was nice. We lost. And we went home. That was about it. Going homes always exciting for a while, but you get used to things and you just do your job. Home is the hotel room. He acknowledged there are pros and cons to playing in Dallas, though he was hardpressed to actually identify anything. The pros is just being in the finals, Bosh said. Thats enough for me.

This tight situation would be their motivation. Grayson Caldwell quickly found the left-center field gap and drilled a single. He would later proceed to second base as the Firemen attempted to throw out Lucas High at the plate. Asacrifice bunt from Larson Angell would allow the scoring opportunity for C aldwell, who just beat out the double-play attempt of first baseman Emily Bible, s coring the final Rotary run. Both teams showed a tight defense as no more runs scored for the following innings, leaving the win to Firemen. We had the lead in the top of the first on our side, said head coach Andrew Bible. We hit the ball well, and that was enough to get the win. On another field, tensions grew high in the fifth inning as the Elks turned the tables on State Farm. AHunter Martinez double would allow the Elks to take the lead as the final inning approached. Despite good efforts to rally back, State Farm would respond with hits of their own, ending the game with a lead of 7-5. After the game, the State Farm head coach Hector Rivera explained how much hard work the boys were contributing to their practice schedules. Our offense opened up-it was an overall good game, he said. The boys made me proud. Rumor has it a trip to Beef O' Brady's is in order for the team if they keep the ball rolling as the tournament continues.

The difference then is, that James is a bigger version of MJ. Call him the Jordan, 2.0. It took me a while to reali ze it, as I was front and center for all of Jordans career, and youll find nobody more boisterous in the assertion that he is the best of all t ime. But I am facing the facts. From a purely physical and talent standpoint, James is Jordans equal, and has the added bonus of superior size. But thats it. Saying that does not in a ny way suggest that in the overall scope of things that James can be called the best e ver. Theres that little matter o f six championships that stands in the way, for starters. But, to me, its the mentality that is an even bigger s eparation between the two. There were many fingers p ointing at James last year during the playoffs regarding him mailing in a game or t wo. Whether it was an exhibit ion game, a January game against a bad team, or an NBAFinals game in which h e was ill, such accusations never arose about Jordans effort. His will to win was borderline maniacal, his browb eating of teammates weeded out the weak and steeled those that could take it. And if his team wasnt up to it, he would simply take o ver in mesmerizing performances. James has the ability to do that and has shown it at times. But its that hes not at that level at all times. Jordan was the unquestioned alpha dog of six championship teams. Sure, he had some great players around him Pippen himself but there was never any question as to who THE man on those teams was. By deciding to leave Cleveland and join forces with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, James surrendered that opportunity. Had he stayed the course as a Cavalier, had he waited a bit longer until the right supporting cast was there and then went on to reel of a slew of championships, this could very well be a whole other discussion. But James wasnt built that way. And thats not such a bad thing, as we now see more clearly that Jordans competitiveness, his relentless drive to win, is a factor in other aspects of his life and probably isnt the healthiest way to be. But as far as comparisons as to who the best of the best is in NBAhistory, thats the defining difference. James wants to win, but the burden of doing it as THE man on a team was too much. Jordans will to win made that burden his fuel. Dan Hoehne is the Sports Editor for the News-Sun. He can be reached at daniel.hoehne@newssun.com.

Associated PressNEWYORK In their own style, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina are the newest duo on the country scene. Just a week following the season finale of American Idol, the teenagers are together doing press like a team and this team doesnt roll alone: Theyre equipped with publicists, security guards, managers, record label extras and their real bosses their mothers. McCreery beat Alaina to become the season 10 champ, but the fact that they are both young country singers with similar goals puts them on the same career track. Ahead of their Idol Top 11 tour which starts next month they will visit Nashville to begin prep on their debut albums. Were going to work with the record people down there and get some songs straightened out and hopefully Ill get to listen to them, get to learn them, McCreery said. American Idol the No. 1 rated show on TV can make you a star, but not all of the shows winners actually come out on top. Remember Taylor Hicks? What about Ruben Studdard? Alaina, 16, thinks country music fans are what kept her and McCreery in the running. Well, country fans are really loyal, so I think thats why Scotty and I did so good, she said. Were young and so we appeal to a younger crowd, and I think that the combination of those two things really helped us out. McCreery, a 17-year-old from Garner, N.C., said growing up, his friends listened to Backstreet Boys and N Sync, while he jammed to Elvis and Johnny Cash. I guess you could say I was the weird one. But, no, I was the one who listened to good music, he said. Idol winner, runner-up play like a country duo The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Millers Central Air 5x6 color

C M Y K Associated PressRANCHO PALOS VERDES, Calif. Disney CEO Bob Iger defended the companys production of 3-D films Thursday after 3-D ticket sales for several recent movies lagged their predecessors. Its way too early to write 3-Ds epitaph, Iger said at the D: All Things Digital conference. I think a lot of conclusions are being reached about a business thats still relatively new. Industry experts point out that The Walt Disney Co.s fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie and the second installment of Kung Fu Panda, from DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., generated around 40 percent of their revenue from 3-D screenings, compared with about 60 percent from earlier films such as Shrek Forever After and How to Train Your Dragon. Some analysts trimmed estimates on DreamWorks and 3-D technology company RealD Inc. as a result. Shares of RealD are down about 14 percent since the weekend, DreamWorks shares are down 7 percent and Disney shares are off about 3 percent. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, June 5, 2011Page 7B CENTRAL SECURITY; 5.542"; 5"; Black plus two; red & yellow, 6/5/11 FIRST PRESBYTERIAN (SB RETAIL); 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 6/5,12 ARTS& ENTERTAINMENT Special to the News-SunSEBRING Duffers Sports Grille will be thinking in twos on Saturday as the staff prepare for the second K araoke Kontest but this time its for duets.

By PAULDERGARABEDIAN For The Associated PressLOS ANGELES After a record-setting Memorial weekend, movie theaters around the country are preparing for yet another summer blockbuster to drive customers to the multiplex. T wentieth Century Foxs X-Men: First Class, featuring a critically-acclaimed director and top actors, is set to earn a leading $50 million by Sunday night. The prequel is the fourth installment in the highlysuccessful X-Men franchise, which has generated over $1 billion in global revenue to date. Warner Bros.The Hangover Part II is poised to have a strong second weekend, with a likely No. 2 finish of around $40 million. In just seven recordtoppling days, the film has earned nearly $150 million in North America and over $200 million worldwide. Dreamworks Animations Kung Fu Panda 2 from Paramount is looking at a third-place finish this weekend, earning just under $30 million. The family-friendly PG-rated film had a secondplace debut over Memorial weekend, earning $67 million in its first five days of release and $135 million worldwide. Disneys Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is an international sensation, having amassed a fortune approaching the $600 million mark in about two weeks. Entering its third weekend with over $170 million earned in North America, the film is still a major summer contender and is expected to come in at No. 4 with around $20 million. Bridesmaids fro m Universal is clearly an audience favorite with a strong midweek gross and weekend drops in the low 20 percent range. Expect a fifth-place finish in the low teens for this R-rated favorite that should cross the $100 million mark by the end of the weekend.

The indigo snake is unique in many w ays; it is certainly one of the most beautiful species of snakes, it is the largest indigenous snake in the United States reaching lengths of nine feet, and it is known to be s omewhat gentle in temperament. These creatures are dubbed indigo because of their iridescent blackblue-purple scales which, when seen in sunlight may look dark blue. T hey are truly amazing reptiles. Indigos are non-venomous and can be identified not only by their iridescent skin, but the reddish and tan coloration on their throat, cheek and chin. They prefer flatwoods, s crub, hammocks, fields and other high ground communities. They e njoy sandy soils and are often found sharing the burrow of a local gopher tortoise. They travel mostly in the summer time when it is warm and have been k nown to journey as much as 273 acres. But in the winter they are more apt to stay in one area. They cant tolerate the cold weather and generally hold up in a burrow or d ebris pile until the warmer temperatures arrive. As with all snakes, the indigo is carnivorous and will eat just about any critter it can catch. To subdue p rey, the snake has been known to beat it against a nearby object such as a rock or tree. This action can be quite violent and the snake may even be injured while restraining its catch. Indigos are known rattlesnake killers. These blue creatures will indeed kill other snakes and they dont seem to mind if the prey is venomous or not.In fact, it is said to be immune to the venom of the North American rattlesnakes. Other than that, they will dine on frogs, lizards, turtles, birds, small mammals and eggs. They hunt during the day and travel long distances in search for prey, which they swallow whole and alive. Oddly enough, the eastern indigo rarely bites when handled. It has the reputation of being a gentle snake. However, that does not mean that it wont try to defend itself from predators or when it feels threatened. When in defensive mode, it will flatten its neck, hiss and vibrate its tail. Many snakes practice these moves when they are frightened or threatened in any way. Unfortunately, these beautiful creatures are disappearing at an alarming rate for many reasons. Many people are fascinated by the mystical creature and since they are somewhat gentle, they have been captured for the pet trade. Of course, habitat destruction is the main reason for their status. They need quite a bit of territory and when their habitat is destroyed, they cannot survive. Another cause for their low population numbers is gassing gopher tortoise burrows in an effort to round up rattlesnakes that also inhabit the tunnels in which they dwell. The indigo snake is an integral part of many plant communities particularly the scrub ecosystems. Because of the relationship with the gopher tortoise and the sharing of its home, both species must be protected if the other is to survive. To protect these important species, conservation and proper management of large tracts of natural areas is necessary. Since the indigo travels from ecosystem to ecosystem, fragmentation of habitat is a huge dilemma for the snake. Wildlife corridors and uninterrupted protected areas are vital for its survival. Fortunately, eastern indigo snakes are federally protected as threatened under the Endangered Species Act. The State of Florida also lists them as protected. They have an average life span of 15 years, so if they are left alone and their habitat is saved from destruction, it is possible that their numbers will increase and their story may have a happy ending. Indigo facts The eastern indigo is diurnal, living in a communal existence with the gopher tortoise. I t stays in the burrow to prevent dehydration and to stay warm in low temperatures. The eastern indigo snake is in severe decline. Its habitat is prime land for development because it is usually the best draining soil. Because of declining populations, the indigo is one of the most protected snakes in the U.S. Laws are very strict concerning touching, catching, killing or in any way harassing the creature. At one time the indigo was a popular snake in the pet trade. It has all the characteristics that make pets popular. It is large, calm and beautiful. The eastern indigo has one of the most varied diets of any snake in the world. It is capable of eating mammals, amphibians, birds and even venomous snakes. But most surprising is that it is one of the only snakes known to eat young turtles. It does all of this without venom or constriction. It relies on its surprising strong jaws and by holding the animal down with its body.

The mysterious, iridescent indigo News From The W atershed Corine Burgess Courtesy photo Eastern Indigo snakes are so named because of their iridescent blackblue scales which, when seen in sunlight appear dark blue. They are the largest indigenous snakes in the United States and they are as docile as they are beautiful.

ROTMAN, DARRIN; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; 6/5/11 Associated PressDETROIT Jack Kevorkian, the audacious, fearless doctor who spurred on the national right-to-die d ebate with a homemade suicide machine that helped end the lives of dozens of ailing people, died Friday at a Detroit-area hospital after a b rief illness. He was 83. Kevorkian died about 2:30 a.m. at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, close friend and prominent attorney M ayer Morganroth said. He had been hospitalized since last month with pneumonia and kidney problems. The retired pathologist, who said he injected lethal d rugs that helped some 130 people die during the 1990s, l ikened himself to Martin Luther King and Gandhi and called prosecutors Nazis, his c ritics religious fanatics. He burned state orders against h im, showed up at court in costume, called doctors who didnt support him hypocritic oafs and challenged authorities to stop him or m ake his actions legal. The issues got to be r aised to the level where it is finally decided, Kevorkian said during a broadcast of C BS Minutes that aired a Lou Gehrigs disease p atients videotaped 1998 death as Kevorkian challenged prosecutors to charge h im in the case that eventually sent him to prison. Experts credit Kevorkian, w ho insisted that people had the right to have a medical p rofessional help them die, with publicizing physicianassisted suicide. Even so, few states made it legal. Laws went into effect in Oregon in 1 997 and Washington state in 2009, and a 2009 Montana Supreme Court ruling effectively legalized the practice in that state. Somebody has to do something for suffering humanity, Kevorkian once said. I put myself in my patientsplace. This is something I would want. People who died with Kevorkians help suffered from cancer, Lou Gehrigs disease, multiple sclerosis, paralysis. They died in their homes, an office, a Detroit island park, a remote cabin, the back of Kevorkians van. An official cause of death for Kevorkian was not immediately determined, but Morganroth said it likely will be pulmonary thrombosis. I had seen him earlier and he was conscious, said Morganroth, who added that the two spoke about Kevorkians pending release from the hospital and planned start of rehabilitation. Then I left and he took a turn for the worst and I went back. Nurses played recordings of classical music by composer Johann Sebastian Bach for Kevorkian before he died, Morganroth said. Nicknamed Dr. Death, Kevorkian catapulted into public consciousness in 1990 when he used his homemade suicide machine in his rusted Volkswagen van to inject lethal drugs into an Alzheimers patient who sought his help in dying. For nearly a decade, he escaped authoritiesefforts to stop him. His first four trials, all on assisted suicide charges, resulted in three acquittals and one mistrial. Murder charges in earlier cases were thrown out because Michigan at the time had no law against assisted suicide; the Legislature wrote one in response to Kevorkian. Devotees filled courtrooms wearing I Back Jack buttons. But critics questioned his publicity-grabbing methods, aided by his flamboyant attorney Geoffrey Fieger until the two parted ways before the 1999 trial in which he was convicted of seconddegree murder. I think Kevorkian played an enormous role in bringing the physician-assisted suicide debate to the forefront, Susan Wolf, a professor of law and medicine at University of Minnesota Law School, said in 2000. Ina rare televised interview from prison in 2005, Kevorkian told MSNBC he regretted a little the actions that put him there. It was disappointing because what I did turned out to be in vain. ... And my only regret was not having done it through the legal system, through legislation, possibly, he said. Kevorkians ultimate goal was to establish obitoriums where people would go to die. Doctors there could harvest organs and perform medical experiments during the suicide process. Such experiments would be entirely ethical spinoffs of suicide, he wrote in his 1991 book Prescription: Medicide The Goodness of Planned Death. His road to prison began in September 1998, when he videotaped himself injecting Thomas Youk, a 52-year-old Lou Gehrigs disease patient, with lethal drugs. He gave the tape to Minutes. Two months later, a national television audience watched Youk die and heard Kevorkian say of authorities: Ive got to force them to act. Prosecutors quickly responded with a first-degree murder charge. Kevorkian acted as his own attorney for most of the trial. He told the court his actions were a medical service for an agonized human being. In his closing argument, Kevorkian told jurors that some acts by sheer common sense are not crimes. Just look at me, he said. Honestly now, do you see a criminal? Do you see a murderer? The U.S. Supreme Court twice turned back appeals from Kevorkian, in 2002, when he argued that his prosecution was unconstitutional, and in 2004, when he claimed he had ineffective representation. Kevorkian was freed in June 2007 after serving eight years of a 10to 25-year sentence. His lawyers had said he suffered from hepatitis C, diabetes and other problems, and he had promised in affidavits that he would not assist in a suicide if he was released. In an interview at the time, Youks brother Terrence said his brother received a medical service that was requested and, from my point of view, compassionately provided by Jack. It should not be a crime. But Tina Allerellie became a fierce critic after her 34year-old sister, Karen Shoffstall, turned to Kevorkian in 1997. She said in 2007 that Shoffstall, who suffered from multiple sclerosis, was struggling with depression and fear but could have lived for years longer. In 2008, Kevorkian ran for Congress as an independent, receiving just 2.7 percent of the vote in the suburban Detroit district. He said his experience showed the party system was corrupt and has to be completely overhauled from the bottom up. Kevorkian said he first became interested in euthanasia during his internship year when he watched a middleaged woman die of cancer. She was so emaciated, her sagging, discolored skin covered her bones like a cheap, wrinkled frock, Kevorkian wrote. After building a suicide device in 1989 from parts he found in flea markets, he sought his first assisted-suicide candidate by placing advertisements in local newspapers. Newspaper and TV interviews brought more attention. On June 4, 1990, he drove his van to a secluded park north of Detroit. After Janet Adkins, 54, of Portland, Ore., met him there, he inserted a needle into her arm and, when she was ready, she flipped the switch that released a lethal flow of drugs. He later switched from his device to canisters of carbon monoxide, again insisting patients took the final step by removing a clamp that released the flow of deadly gas to the face mask. Kevorkians life story became the subject of the 2010 HBO movie, You Dont Know Jack, which earned actor Al Pacino Emmy and Golden Globe Awards for his portrayal of Kevorkian. Kevorkian himself said he liked the movie and enjoyed the attention it generated, but told The Associated Press that he doubted it would inspire much action by a new generation of assisted-suicide advocates. Youll hear people say, Well, its in the news again, its time for discussing this further.No it isnt. Its been discussed to death, he said. Theres nothing new to say about it. Its a legitimate ethical medical practice as it was in ancient Rome and Greece. Kevorkians fame or notoriety also made him fodder for late-night comediansmonologues and sitcoms. His name became cultural shorthand for jokes about hastening the end of life. Even admirers couldnt resist. Adam Mazer, the Emmy-winning writer for You Dont Know Jack, got off one of the best lines of the 2010 Emmy telecast. Im grateful youre my friend, Mazer said, looking out at Kevorkian. Im even more grateful youre not my physician. Assisted suicide advocate Jack Kevorkian dies at age 83 MCTphoto Jack Kevorkian earned the nickname Dr. Death for assisting suicides in the 1990s.

C M Y K DearAbby: Im running out of energy to compassionately relate with all the addicts and mentally ill people in my family. My mother is an alcoholic. My aunt is bipolar and schizophrenic. She is addicted to and abusing prescription painkillers and antianxiety medicines. My husband is an alcoholic in denial who lies about his alcohol consumption, and my stepmother is mentally abusive and, I strongly suspect, also bipolar. These people are all retired, while I work a physically and mentally demanding full-time job. Im usually the one who is blamed when things dont go right. Mother asked me to remove all alcohol from her home so she could stop drinking. When I didnt find it all, it was MYfault she drank. I escorted my aunt on a cruise during which she abused drugs to the point she could barely walk, and I had to find her wheelchairs at every stop. Now I hear she is blaming me for her illness. When my husband drinks, he runs up our credit card to the tune of $20,000. My job with medical benefits allowed him to retire from his job. My stepmother no longer communicates with my brother and me and seems to be alienating my father from his family. Im exhausted! I dont think I can take much more. I know youll tell me to see a counselor, but Im the one who has the full-time job and little vacation/sick time I can use. Short of divorcing all of them and starting a new life in an undisclosed location, what advice can you offer? Nearly Sucked Dry DearNearly: Since you cant get away to see a counselor because of the demands of your job, pick up a couple of books on co-dependency and read them cover-to-cover. Then practice protecting yourself by learning to say No! when an alcoholic makes you responsible for clearing the booze out of her house, or a drug-addicted relative invites you to take a vacation that guarantees youll become her nurse. Discuss with a lawyer how to separate your finances from your deadbeat husband so he cant dig you deeper into debt the next time he chooses to go on a bender. You dont have to divorce anyone as long as you learn how to draw the line. P.S. Al-Anon can be reached toll-free at (888) 4AL-ANON ((888) 4252666). DearAbby: My sister is always late sending birthday presents to my kids sometimes up to a month or two after their birthdays. I find it disrespectful and a bad example, so I asked that she either send them on time or not at all. It did no good. She complained that I am being unfair to hold her to a deadline. My sister has all year to plan around these events, and I feel she needs to be more responsible. Its affecting our relationship. Please advise. Calendar Gal, Rochester, N.Y. DearCalendarGal: If you could see all of the letters I receive from readers complaining that they receive NO gifts, you would realize that your children are lucky to be remembered. While I agree that sending birthday presents as long as a month or two after the fact sends a message that their special day is not of primary importance to your sister, please do not let this create a rift. Explain to your children that Auntie loves them, but she is extremely disorganized. (A ditz!) www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, June 5, 2011Page 13B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; 6/3/11 p/u DR.

Gemini (May 22-June 21) Gemini, a friend or relative might have overstayed his or her welcome. Let this person know in a tactful way that it is time to move on to greener pastures. Cancer(June 22-July 22) Cancer, people at work know nothing about your private life and thats just how you prefer to keep it. But you may need to open up to someone this week to prove a point. Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, no matter how many times people attempt to knock you down, you simply bounce right back. It will take a lot of effort to stop you once you have your mind set.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) You could be in an adventurous mood, Pisces. Maybe you want to take a few friends along on a secret adventure on the weekend. Plan a secret adventure this week, Pisces Breadwinner is out of patience for her dysfunctional family My husband Ken and I visited the little mountain town of Spruce Pine while in North Carolina. Immediately I sensed the towns heart and soul. Banner signs welcomed us to the Home of the Perfect Christmas Tree. As I wondered about the towns theme, I tried to ignore signs of deterioration. I was soon enlightened at Home of the Perfect Christmas Tree Store. It seems the town had come upon hard times when 2,500 textile and furniture manufacturing jobs had been out sourced. Then Author, Gloria Houston, who had grown up in the area, gave the merchandising rights for her award-winning childrens book, The Year of the Perfect Christmas Tree to Spruce Pine to contribute to its revitalization. Where hope had been nearly smothered in tiny Spruce Pine, her gift breathed new life into the towns heart rebirthing it with a new theme. Cottage industries sprung up among local artists infusing them with meaningful work and creating a scholarship fund to benefit area students. Artists created original, handcrafted decorations telling the story of the book through ornaments, pottery, painting weaving, etc. Spruce Pines faith walk had begun. Then First Lady, Laura Bush, learned about this endeavor and ordered glass ornaments and handmade Carolina snowflakes for the trees in the White House. Word got out and an explosion of orders set the town into a whirl of activity. Though all lost jobs couldnt be restored, the heart and soul of the town reawakened as perfection became their goal. This true story reminds me that though perfection actually may not be attainable this side of heaven, it is found in character not status or achievement. In the book, the quest for the perfectChristmas tree took preparation and a hard climb to where a tree, hearty and made strong from heavens winds would be found; and, where commitment and love made it a gift to all. Broken dreams and uncertainties may seem like hopeless dead ends in themselves. But, the hard climb and strong winds produce tenacity and beauty that results in hope reborna gift for all. In Matthew 5, NIV, Jesus is teaching about all the ways we are to live as his followers. Then he says in verse 48, Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Jesus was speaking of a pure heart and pure motives that seek to act as the Father acts. Aheart that pursues the Fathers best seeks his perfectiona gift to us all.

C M Y K LIVING 14B PAGE News-Sun Sunday, June 5, 2011 F AMILYFEATURES Finding ways to go green in the home does more than help the planet. It helps your homes environment, as well. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, levels of indoor air pollutio n can be two to five times higher than outdoor levels. These pollutants as well as chemicals found in many products today can irritate allergy and asthma sufferers. More people than ever are looking to make natural changes in their home to help improve their familys environmental health, said Dr. Shannon Thyne, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at UCSF and Medical Director of the Pediatric Asthma and Allergy Clinic at San Francisco General Hospital. It only takes a few extra steps to make a home healthier, cleaner and greener. T o that end, the maker of Green Worksproducts, HGTVpersonality and green living expert Carter Oosterhouse, and Lowes have teamed up to showcase ways to give your family a cleaner, greener home. Whether you could use help enhancing the look of your childs playroom, or youre lookin g for ways to reduce chemicals and their fumes and residues in your kitchen, there are simple steps you can take to make your home environ ment healthier, while still keeping it stylish and beautiful, said Oosterhouse. While every home is different, here are some ways to make any home naturally beautiful and healthier.Paint Afresh coat of paint is a great, low-cost way to bring new life to a room. But that new paint smell comes from Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which derive from vapors released from toxic compounds. Use non-VOC paint to create an inviting, comfortable and beautiful room. Check the back of the paint can for VOC levels those with fewer than 150 grams per liter are often labeled low-VOC or no-VOC .Buy only the amount of paint youll need for the project.
