C M Y K B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING The election proceeds a t its own inexorable pace. The first major deadline passed on May 7, w hen candidates had to present the 633 petition cards signed by eligiblev oters if they were to avoid having to pay election fees. Election fees are a percentage of the annual salary a candidate seeks. Therei s a 4 percent charge from the county. If a candidate is running as a representative ofa political party a nother 2 percent is charged by that party,for a total of 6 percent of the annual salary. Candidates must submit quarterly financial statements the most recent being on March 31. There have only been two candidate changes in the last two weeks the unexpected death of Richard Beebe, who was running for Superintendent of Elections,and the filing of Eileen Game for The School Board of Highlands County District 2 seat. Beebes loss means there are now three candidates in contention for election supervisor:Susie Bishop, David Flowers and Penny Ogg.

No wonder:DeGenaro knew the amount of thec heck hidden in an envelope,waiting for presentation to Habitat. Pallone explained that the Restore building is inn eed of essential repairs. The roof,for example,is 25 years old,but has an expected 15to 20-year life span. A sprinkler system has to be installed and a new floor laid. The repairs all have to do with customer and worker safety, Pallone said. In total,needed repairs will cost in the realm of $85,000.

John Komosa,Parks and Recreation director for the town, explained how the lack of a plan for tree planting has caused problems as the root system of several trees have invaded adjacent plots and upset headstones. Additionally,digging graves and servicing irrigation in the cemetery has become complicated because of the growth of the root systems. Kamosas plan included designating a specific area where memorial trees could be placed and developing a detailed landscaping plan for the towns cemetery. Kamosa outlined a tree package that could be used to help correct the issues.

C M Y K Less than a month after Staff Sgt. Travis Mills lost his arms and legs in a southern Afghanistan terrorista ttack, his wife, Kelsey, paused to reflect on an unimaginable ordeal. I can either curl up in a ball and cry or keep going,K elsey told The Unknown Soldiers by phone from the W alter Reed National Military Medical Center inB ethesda, Md., on May 8. I choose the latter Amazingly, Kelseys husband has also kept going. From the moment he wokeu p without his limbs after an enemy improvised explosive device detonated on April 10, Staff Sgt. Mills has been preoccupied with the well-beingo f his fellow 82nd Airborne Division paratroopers still fighting in Afghanistan. He worries about them constantly, Kelsey said. He makes me message them daily to make sure theyre safe. While fellow soldiers were injured in the attack, Travis was relieved to learn they are healing. In this brave soldiers mind, if anyone was going to live out his life as a quadruple amputee, it was going to be him. He wouldnt have let this happen to any of his guys, and thats why it didnt happen to any of his guys, Kelsey explained. He was always the first in line anywhere they went. The 23-year-old Army wife had one source of comfort after the shocking news of her husbands severe wounds changed her life. Her brother, Staff Sgt. Joshua Buck, was also deployed to Afghanistan at the time of the attack and accompanied Travis home to the United States. I woke up in Germany, and I would have been alone, Kelsey quoted her husband as saying at Walter Reed. I couldnt have faced it without Josh. Through searing pain and the thick haze of medication, Travisbiggest fear wasnt death or adjusting to life as a wounded warrior. It was the panic his wife and their seven-month-old daughter, Chloe, would endure the first time they saw him without arms and legs. Travis, 25, has spent his entire adult life putting others before himself. Hed give you the shirt o ff his back without hesitation, the soldiers wife said. If you meet him, youll never forget him. Kelseys quote is demons trated by a national outpouring that started in the soldiers hometown of Vassar, Mich. Even though he moved away eight years ago, thec ommunity made sure the wounded warrior knew he is still their hometown hero. Sometimes he says, Oh my God, why do people care so much, I was just doing my job, Kelsey said. And I say, You did a lot and have given a lot for all of them. After Fox News aired a segment about the wounded soldier and his family, hundreds of supporters became hundreds of thousands. Contributions poured in to the Travis Mills Family Fund, and stellar charities like the Fisher House Foundation, Gary Sinise Foundation and Travis Manion Foundation stepped up to help Travis, Kelsey, Chloe and close relatives. He gets letters at the hospital daily, she said. People write such nice things. While grateful for the media attention her husbands ordeal has garnered, Kelsey worries that the war in Afghanistan is fading from our daily national consciousness. I wouldnt have known any of these stories if I wast here walking through the hospital, she said. I never would have met these families or known what theyre going through. Kelsey believes the overwhelming support for Travis proves that if the national media reported more frequently about the sacrifices of our troops in Afghanistan, the country would rally around the military community. This shows me that people will pay attention, she said. All of Kelseys attention is devoted to making sure her husband knows he has a wife and baby girl who will always love him uncondition-a lly. Im looking forward to living a normal life, Kelsey said. But right now, I dont know what normal is. T he next time life gets you down, think of Staff Sgt. T ravis Mills, his remarkable wife, and their courageousl oved ones. Amid some of the most daunting physical and emotional challenges that human beings can experience, they are incredibly staying positive. Im happy that my husband is still alive, Kelsey Mills said. Hes still here. To find out more about Tom S ileo, visit the Creators S yndicate website at www.creators.com/.

In an e-mail addressed to the Board of C ounty Commissioners, Dr. Elton J. Gissendanner wrote his proposed plan could save a couple of hundred thousand dollars yearly and be a better service to the public, taxpayers and prevent lots of needless suffering of animals. I approached this without reflecting a ny positive or negative concerns of the current animal services or any persons therein and from scratchas if there was no present animal services operation in place, Gissendanner wrote. C ommissioners appointed five Highlands County citizens to a newly formed Animal Control Advisory Committee Tuesday and the group is tasked with looking at more efficient ways to operate and maintain the countys animal control department. A nother group of local veterinarians also made a proposal to commissioners and asked for similar items as Gissendanner. Dr. Gissendanners proposal varied from the other veterinarians when he included a to 5 year contract to a nonp rofit animal humane organization 501 Local vet says that non-profit should take over Animal Control duties See VET, page 7A Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The chairman of the Boardo f Governors on Wednesday added to the g rowing list of committees, task forces and other panels examining higher education in Florida.

T he cleanup site, 422 Park St., was formerly known as t he Park Street Water Operation. In late 2008, the site was determined to have gasoline and diesel contamination from the tanks thatw ere once there. The Florida Department of E nvironmental Protection approved the site for clean up as well as committed to pro-v ide available funds for the project mid-year 2009. A Performance Based Cleanup (PBCP ark Street station was started in early 2010 with an extract ion system (to remove petroleum f rom the contamination site) and clean up began in April 2010. By November of 2 010, the system had reduced the containment concentration by 50 percent. Shortly after however, a second, more concentrated con-t ainment was discovered that halted the clean u p process. Imperial Testing Laboratories (Lakeland ommended that an assessment be done to aid in the cleanupa long with completing the initial job at the site. The project calls for five shallow well monitors to be installed into the ground at the site to see ift he heavy product (oily substance) is at the former power plant site. The cost of the assessment is $36,661 to be paid by the City of Sebring Numerous questions were asked by the Sebring council in order to determine the route to take with the issue. The main question is what are our options, councilman Scott Stanley asked. Because I always consider doing nothing an option for anything; are we forced to do it and pay for it or does DEPor somebody else pay for it. The DEPcontracted the cleanup with a cap of $400,000, of which half has already been spent. The other half is spent as it will be used to complete the initial cleanup after the assessment is completed. DEPcan no longer fund additional work at the site. When you run across a situation when there is more work to do, like we have here, then it falls on the responsible party, said Polk County H ealth Department engineer Richard Spaulding. My understanding, from the last time, is that the chances of this contaminanta ctually causing an actual issue is slim to none. What are the repercussions of the city if we do nothing with it? councilman Andrew Fells asked. Spaulding informed the c ouncil that once the contamination is discovered the rule is i t has to be cleaned up. Spaulding also stated that if the assessment was not done,h e believed that DEPwould terminate the contract leaving t he entire cleanup project and $400,000 bill on Sebring. An initial fine plus daily fines would then be issued on the city. If fines are not paid they continue to accrue ... then it g oes basically into the courts. They will sue the city to do the cleanup, Spaulding said. P resident of Imperial, Al McGhin, then clarified what p rocedures must be done according to the DEP. The levels that we are finding right now, the levels are too h igh. There is a certain level where the D EPsays OK, this is contaminated enough where you have to clean it up.It could be an impact to thep ublic. The levels in these wells that we are finding are high enough and DEPwill make you clean it up, McGhin explained. And the impact to t he public is what? City Administrator Scott N oethlich asked. The ground water McGhin said. Noethlich asked what the ground water had to be uti-l ized for to make an impact on the public. McGhin stated that DEPworks off of a potential basis and any risk to ground water must abide byD EPrules. The report currently shows that the heavier product (containment in the 28-foot wells. The containment has yet to be found in the 54-foot wells; ground water and drinking water aquifers in this area are a couple hundred feet down, according to McGhin. The DEPhowever, will not consider that McGhin stated. I think what were doing is were jumping a little bit too far ahead. Lets assess this thing. It could be a very isolated area and were not talking about a whole lot of money..., McGhin said. After explaining the different technologies and procedures it will take to complete the assessment and get back on track with the initial cleanup, the council prepared to vote on the issue. The council passed budget amendment 41 with a 3-2 vote. Council members John Clark and Stanley cast the dissenting votes. Council will spend $33K for Park St. station cleanup assessment Former water p lant has fuel contamination The level in the w ells ... a re high e nough that the DEPwill make you clean it up.ALMcGHIN Imperial Testing L aboratories By SAMANTHAGHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comS EBRING Saturday was a long and exciting day for the World War II veterans that participated in this years Honor Flight. Nearly 100 veterans gathered togethe r to take a field trip to the nations c apital for a unique experience. It was wonderful. Everyone had a really great time, said Highlands County Veterans Service Officer JackieG raham. A total of 95 veterans, one being a woman, from Highlands and Hardee counties along with each of their g uardians climbed onto the Annett Bus i n the wee hours of the morning to head to the airport for their flight. e left at around 4:30 (a.m.We had a police escort set up by J.P.

T he short flight to Washington D.C.s Ronald Reagan Airport was the first in a long time for many on board, including 84-year-old Navy veteranD an Manderville. Oh, I havent flown in a very long time. My wife wont fly, so we drive e verywhere, said Manderville. Manderville, who brought along his d aughter June Fisher as his guardian for the trip, was excited to be a part of the Honor Flight and had a memorable time. The biggest thing I can think of while we were there was when wel anded in Washington. There were so many people. We saw a line of people t here just greeting us. I thought that it was terrific, Manderville said. T he veterans got a second fire truck water shower on the runway when they landed. U pon exiting the plane and entering the airport, the group was welcomed by a large group of Boy Scouts as well as law enforcement. Everyone was super nice and helpful to them. At the airport we didnt run into any problems really. The airportp ersonnel didnt make them take off their hats, belts or their shoes. They just checked their hands, said Graham. The veterans had a fun-filled day visiting multiple sites around t h e nations capital. The group visited the World War II Memorial followed by lunch at Haynes Point Park. The day ended with a visit to the Changing oft he Guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns at Arlington National C emetery and finished up at the Iwo Jima Memorial. I was amazed at how many vets w ere buried there, Manderville said. Manderville stated that it was a very m oving part of the trip. The group finished up and re-boarded the plane and headed back toF lorida, landing in Fort Myers around 11:45 p.m. Saturday night. It was a long day and I was tired. B ut it was a really enjoyable experience, said Manderville. E ach of the veteransexpenses ($350b. Guardians must pay their own fees in order to accompany a veteran for the trip. Some of these guys arent used to the attention. They are used to being in the background, but it was great to see them get recognized and doted on for the day. The vets are very appreciative. Its just wonderful to see the camaraderie and hear the stories betweent hem all. It was a refreshing, wonderful experience, Graham said.

For them to say that people feeding strays will be cited is just plane stupid. What would they want us to do,just have the poor animals starve? I have had dogs all of my life,but I had considered cats to just be stupid mouse catchers. Boy,was I wrong. One day years ago I saw a small white kitten in my front yard. A person riding by on his bicycle hollered do not feed it,we dont want stray cats hanging around here. So I did not feed it,but it bothered me through the night. I felt that if it was still around in the morning that I would feed it. The next morning I saw it laying in my drive way. It was just skin and bones; it had starved to death. This situation will bother me the rest of my life. I would go out and chase (another catway but it would keep coming back, finally we named her Lucie. ... One day I saw her come out from a shelter I made up off ofthe ground. I went to see why she had been there; there were four of the cutest little kittens. ... While trying to decide which of the kittens I wanted to keep,... I decided to have all of the cats neutered or spayed,rabies shots, dewormed,and vaccinated. I was able to borrow four cages from the Humane Society and one from the Animal Control. They were both very co-operative and helpful. One morning I saw Animal Control in the area. I asked to see what they had. It was a small all black cat. Since it was none of ours I did not say anything. About three days later a small all black kitten showed up on my back deck. ... It has turned out to be the most lovable cat. Due to the very bad economy,some people have to move out and cannottake their pets with them. I have found out that the family living behind me also loves animals,and has had several of them fixed. We have found good homes for several. I have built shelters for them in the woods. ... Several neighbors have brought cat food and donated money and thanked us for what we are doing. The feeding station and shelters are in the woods and can not be seen from any street or homes. As I said at the start ... that feeding strays ... people will be cited just shows arrogance and stupidity. Joseph J. Oros A ddressing Congress on May 25, 1961,President Kennedy challenged A merica and set a seemingly impossible goal:sending a person to the moon by the end of the decade. Kennedysa mbitious dream was realized by the Apollo program,and,since that time, manned space exploration has been an i ntrinsic part of both Americas national character,and its vision of t he future. As a result,our retreat from the final frontier is a clear illustration of the retrenchment accompanying the long,slow,slide of national decline. T he great retreat began with President Obamas decision in 2010 to kill the Constellation program,which was supposed to be the successor to the now-retired space shuttle,and a key component in our return to the moon (as well as future missions toM ars). As Charles Krauthammer has written,Americas manned spacef light program essentially died that year for want of $3 billion a year 1/300th of [the 2009] stimulus package with its endless make-work projects that will leave not a trace on then ational consciousness. The recent Republican presidential primary furnished further evidence of our nations withdrawal. Fifty-one years ago,when Kennedy said wew ould land a man on the moon and return him safely to the earth,he was neither mocked nor derided. This stands in sharp contrast to the reaction that greeted Newt Gingrichs proposal during the primary to develop a lunar colony. Gingrich,alone among all the Republican contestants,saw manned space exploration as an integral part of Americas future. He proposed building on the foundation laid by Kennedy,and taking it to its next natural stepa human colony.And this vision,so similar to one that,in former times,stirred our souls and led to great deeds,was met with scorn. Krauthammer,writing in 2010,drew a sharp contrast between Kennedys liberalism and Obamas. In his view, Kennedys was an expansive,bold, outward-looking summonswhereas Obamas is a constricted inwardlooking call to retreat. But as the reaction to Gingrichs lunar colony idea demonstrates,the inward-turning movement spans the ideological spectrum. Conservatives hear the bugles sounding the retreat in their own hearts as well. We cane xpect no bold visions from that quarter either. Something intrinsic in our national character has changed,or been lost. Historically,manned space explor ation hasnt been just another government program. It was an expression of our technological prowess and our faith in the future. And through the moon landings,we achieved something that transcended the boundaries of time,place,and culture,and spoke directly to the deepest longings and aspirations of the human spirit. Going to the moon is what the United States will be remembered for, long after everything else we have accomplished has been forgotten. This was brought home to me in a visceral way several weeks ago. I was in the backyard star-gazing with my 6year-old daughter. The night sky has always been an amazing canvass for the human imagination. Looking up at it,we encounter the eternal the deep depths of both space and time. I was pointing out and naming some of the constellations and visible planets. Then we came to the moon. I told her that people,people just like her and I,had walked on the moon. At first,she didnt believe me; going to t he moon seemed impossible. So we went inside,and watched the Apollo 1 1 launch and landing on YouTube together. It was a profound experience. The lunar landing is an event that,even after all these years,immediatelye vokes a sense of awe,wonder,and pride. I saw it on my daughters face. But as we watched,my joy was mixed with sadness,because things like the moon missions are impossiblen ow.Though we remain a big country geographically,we are fatally constricted in vision,spirit,and imagination. We wont be building moon colonies,or going to Mars. There will be no more great endeavors that capture the imagination nothing like the Apollo program,the construction of the transcontinental railroad,or even the interstate highway system. Wve lost something fundamental. No more can-do optimism. No more broad horizons. The sky is,most certainly,no longer the limit. A nation at dusk,we are lowering the blinds.

The goal is to keep money funneled into building and renovating new homes. H is church,DeGenaro said,has long been a active supporter of Habitat. Not only have individual parishioners contributed generous-l y over the years,but the church as a whole has as w ell having donated about $200,000 sinceH abitats inception here in 1990. The church has an electrical team,numbering as many as 30 members,thath as wired several houses. DeGenaro told the NewsSu n no sooner had a funding drive been announced then a member of his congregation stepped forward with a contribution the only requestb eing the donor remain anonymous and the sum r emain a surprise until the check was revealed. W hich is why Pallone couldnt help from squirming in her seat with excitement. A few minutes later outs ide,gathered with Stuart Spencer,the manager of the Restore; Alan Ball,who will be over seeing the repairs; J ohn Hawthorn,Habitats executive director and D eGenaro,Pallone watched as Hawthorn opened the envelope. His eyebrows flew up in amazement. It was for$ 10,000. Pallone gasped. She had known the donation would be a generous,but she hadn o idea how generous. This puts us a good way on the road to our goal,she said with a broad smile of relief. This is awesome,said Hawthorn,laughing out loud. Bring on the rain,said Ball. Not until the roof is done,said Hawthorn andt he preacher in unison. To make a contribution, call Habitat at 385-7156. C ontinued from page 1A Kamosa said,and that i ncludes the tree,the labor and planning as well as a memorial plaque,Kamosa said. This could also create a l ittle bit of revenue for the cemetery,Komosa said. Councilman Steve Bastardi said the plan was consistent with the previousc emetery committees plans. Bastardi was part of a cemetery committee that took a look into the finances, maintenance and repair of the cemetery last year. You wouldnt allow anyone to plant anything over t heir plot because the root system would interfere with a nothers plot,Bastardi said. Just be very careful where you plant the trees. If you are g oing to plant them next to someone who is not going somewhere,maybe it wont b e so bad,Bastardi quipped, b ut agreed that Kamosas p lan had merit. T he city would plant approximately 20 trees at a t ime and allow family members to dedicate a tree in m emorial to their loved ones. e would incur maybe $1,000 worth of debt upfront a nd when we have sold,say, 1 5 or so trees,we would plant another batch,offered Councilman Ray Royce during the discussion. Sand oaks were selected f or the memorial tree s according to Komosa, because they require little water and grow into a nice canopy. Councilman Mike Waldron also complimented Kamosa on the idea. I have been in the plant a nd tree business for quite sometime. I really like this. Good job,Waldron said. T he council directed Kamosa to return by June 11 with a solid outline for the council to review.

With it being the centennialy ear, we want to do a good job... Johnson said. Council member Bud Whitlock made a motion that the City donate $2,500 to thef ireworks fund. ouve already gotten $2,500 from the CRAyester-d ay. Id like to see the grassroots support, meaning merchants. Id like to see thate ffort pushed a little bit further before the city ponies u p, council member John Clark said. Johnson stated that the R otary is actively seeking other individuals and busin esses to contribute to the firework fund. I dont feel like its our responsibility as holding the purse strings of the taxpay-e rsmoney to spend the money that way, said C ouncilmen Andrew Fells. The request for the City to donate $2,500 for the firework fund was voted down 32, with Clark, Fells and Scott Stanley casting the dissentingv otes. The council suggested that Johnson possibly bring the request back at a later date if the funds were not collected. Alengthy discussion involving the use of the stage in Circle Park, the Community RedevelopmentA gency and the city was brought up after council members approved the use oft he stage for multiple future events. The stage was built by the C RAfor $11,000, according to former CRAchairmen G ene Brenner. Since then the CRAhas turned the stage over to the city for insur-a nce purposes according to Brenner. T he council eventually agreed to take sole responsibility of the stage rather than having interested parties run back and forth between thec ouncil and the CRAfor use. P ublic Works Director Ken Fields approached council requesting additional funds t o finish the Circle tree proje ct. C ouncil members unanim ously approved the request a llowing the Public Works Department to continue with improvements on the Circle. The project will call for removal of two weak liveo aks as well as declining laurel oaks. Two new live oaksw ill be planted in the place of the laurels; the new trees willb e approximately 14 feet tall. T he project is estimated to cost between $1,500 and $6,000. C ity Administrator Scott N oethlich closed out the m eeting revealing that the potential contract wi th P olston Engineering to d esign plans, bid documents a nd supervise the removal of t he wall located at 503 E. Center Ave. had fallen through. We could not come to an a greement with Polston, s aid Noethlich. The city has approached CivilSurv with a proposal to provide the previously stated e ngineering services. The s ervices would cost approximately $4,300. Council passed the propo sal with a 4-1 vote. Clark cast the dissenting vote and continued to express his dissatisfaction with the entire project. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, May 18, 2012Page 7A PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 3.639"; 16"; B lack plus three; process, main 90455 liquors; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 8 8 9 9 8 8 9 9 Special to the News-SunS EBRING Amber Lynn Jackson, Highlands County native and daughter of Andrew and Ida Jackson, was recently crowned MissT allahassee USA2013.

That waiver included lifting a requirement for the state to set aside 20 percent of Title I funds for special tutoring. In remarks in Washington before the Florida Council of 100, a nonprofit organization, Duncan noted a new study showing the mandated tutoring had no impact on student performance. He said a cottage industry of tutoring companies has emerged around the mandate, but there has never been accountability for results, Duncan said. Districts dont know if individual companies are actually having an impact on student achievement. The Florida Legislature passed a law that will take effect in July requiring 15 percent of Title I funds be used for supplemental education services in the upcoming school year. Title I funds are provided to schools with large numbers of low-income students, and the tutoring program is designed to offer extra help to students at schools deemed in need of improvement. As part of the Florida law, districts must contract with state Department of Education approved tutoring providers. Ed secretary questions state law on tutoring

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Confidence is built upon success. Keep succeeding and the confidence will continue to grow. W ith five wins in a row, Glissons Animal Supply, Inc. i s getting near the stage of bursting with confidence a nd just at the right time. The guys at the bottom of our order have been getting better and better, head coach Ed Crouch said. For some, its their first time playing, so t heyve had to gain confidence, and theyve been gaini ng it. Of course, in Tuesdays 122 win over Publix in Dixie Youth play at the Max Long Recreational Complex, it was the usual suspects who did the early damage. With lead-off man D.J. M cPhail on via a walk, Josh Crouch unloaded one off Publix starter David DeGenaro over the centerfield fence for a quick 2-0 lead. DeGenaro got out of any further damage and used a quick pick-off move to get through the second unscathed, but his defense faltered behind him as Glissons took control in the third. McPhail reached on an error, though was erased at second on Seth Cannadys fielders choice. Crouch walked and another error off of a Kyle Helms fly brought Cannady in and put runners on the corners. An error on a steal during Rey Moros at bat brought Crouch in, though another DeGenaro pick-off at third looked to ease the damage. But Moro walked, Grayson Caldwell singled to left and Brevin Gunn knocked one through the right side for an RBI single. Caldwell and Gunn each came in via a wild pitch and an error, respectively, and the lead was now at 7-0, before Alex Gomez came on in relief and got out of it. Publix got on the board when Garrison Dick singled home a run in the bottom of the frame.

Special to the News-SunP LANTCITY Team Venom, an 11-and-Under travel baseball team consisting of players from Highlands and HardeeC ounties, took on the field over Mothers Day weekend in Plant City at the 2012 Global Sports Alliance State Championship. Coached by Johnny H uergo and Carlos Cardoso, the youngsters worked t hrough a whopping 12 hours of baseball on Sunday to take home the tournament crown. A fter taking their opening game, a 9-8 nail-biter over the Seminole Storm, Team V enom made a valiant comeback to topple the Central Florida Prospects, 10-6, to reach the championship game. B ut the squad would need another comeback as the Dunedin Panthers held an 8-2 lead after three innings at Mike Sansome Park in Plant City. C ody Jolley was brought on in relief to try and quell t he Panther attack and held them in check at the nine-run mark. A s Jolley did his work, the Venom bats came alive and tied it at 9-9 in the fifth. F our more runs came across, all with two outs, in the top of the sixth to give Team Venom a 13-9 lead, with Dunedin having one lasta t bat. After a pop-up was nabbed by Jorge Martinez for the first out, a Panther batter reached on a single. But a grounder to second w as fielded by Martinez, who flipped to shortstop Isaac M oreno at the bag before Moreno fired to Carson Angell at first for the game-e nding, title-clinching double play. For their outstanding day o f play, each player received a Champion T-shirt and a first-place medal, while the team was rewarded with a three-foot trophy. J olley, who turned in the big performance to give Team Venom a chance for the comeback, was awarded the team MVP. In addition to Jolley, M artinez, Moreno and Angell, J.J. Huergo, Katwann W ard, Dylan Deford, Adrian DeLeon, George Martinez and Danny Cordoso allp layed a part in bringing home the championship. Team Venom takes crown By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Despite a slow start, Pool Paradise added a win to their record as they topped Lockhart Service Center 13-4 Tuesday night at Max Long Recreational Complex. Taking the field first would be Pool Paradise, with starting pitcher Trey Frazier facing the first of Lockharts batters. Leadoff Zach Waters would start things off for the visiting team as he reached third base on a fielding error. William Ebersoles hit would be a little hot to handle for Pool Paradises shortstop, granting him first base while also bringing in Waters for the first run of the night. An overthrow would later move him to third while putting teammate Angel Ojeda on second. Travis Russell would be thrown out by the Pool Paradise defense, but not before another run was scored for Lockhart Service Center. The Pool Paradise defense would still be a little shaky, allowing on more run on an error. Travis Hickey then ripped an RBI single up the middle to put the board at 4-0 before Pool Paradise approached their first at-bat. It was now the Pool Paradise offense against Lockhart pitcher Waters. Jordan Austin led off the bottom of the first with a double and was later placed into scoring position as an error followed a pop fly to right. Waters would intentionally walk Jimmy Peck, who later stole second base. Daniel Simons drove in both Austin and Peck and would be brought in himself by Alex Colons RBI after an error on the steal to second Pool Paradise swims past Lockhart See POOL, Page 4B News-Sun photo by LAUREN WELBORN Jimmy Peck lofts a sacrifice fly to bring Jordan Austin home in Tuesdays win for Pool Paradise. By MICHAELMAROT Associated PressI NDIANAPOLIS Dario Franchitti just wins IndyCar championships. At least thats been the case since he returned fro m NASCAR in 2009. B ut the combination of Hondas new engine, Roger Penskes dominance and some bad luck has Franchitti looking like anything but a champ in 2012. Hes 12th in the standings, trailing leader Will Power by 100 points after four races, and he will need a drastic turnaround just to get back in the title hunt. T he good news is Franchitti will be spending the next 11 days working at his favorite track, Indianapolis Motor Speedway, with a more confident outlook. In Brazil, I think we really turned the corner, the t hree-time defending points champ said during this w eeks practice. We were 1/100th of a second off the pole, we definitely felt good with the race performance in Brazil and how the car drove. But all that has no bearing on what happens in Indy Titles usually do. Five of the last seven Indy winners went on to win the season championship and since 2004 all but one IndyCar champ was also in the top 10 at Indy. Franchitti is the exception to both rules, finishin g 1 2th last season at the 500 and seventh in 2009 before capturing the points title each time. And fortunately for Target Chip Ganassi Racing, few drivers know how to get around the Brickyard bet-t er than Franchitti. H s had a front-row spot in three of his last four Indy starts, and from 2005 until last year, Franchitti hadnt finished worse than seventh on the 2.5-mile oval. There is plenty riding on this weekends qualifying and the May 27 race, too. Awin would make the Scotsman only the second three-time Indy winner from outside the U.S., joining Brazils Helio Castroneves. Awin also would put Franchitti in a tie with Paul Tracy and Sebastien Bourdais for No. 7 on IndyCars career victory list with 31, the most of any active drivFranchitti hoping Indy turns corner on slow start See DARIO, Page 4B

C M Y K By RICHARD ROSENBLATT Associated PressAll eyes will be on Kentucky Derby winner Ill Have Another when an 11horse field lines up for the $1 million Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course on Saturday. Avictory, and Ill Have Another will have a chance to become the first Triple Crown champion in 34 years if he goes on to win the Belmont Stakes next month in New York. But a whole bunch of 3year-olds are out to spoil the p arty. S ome are taking another shot after losing in the Derby, and others, known as new shooters, skipped the Derby, have fresh legs and are looki ng to pull an upset. Heres a look at five horses with a shot to defeat the Derby winner in the second leg of the Triple Crown. ___ BODEMEISTER He was the morning-line favorite in the Derby, and hes the morning-line choice in this one, too. Why? Because hes fast, and the 1 1/4-mile Derby distance was just a little too far for him to carry all that speed. The Preakness is a sixteenth-of-a-mile shorter, plus Bodemeister wont be pressured early like he was in the Derby by Trinniberg and Hansen, who are not entered. It probably doesnt hurt that his trainer, Bob Baffert, has won the Preakness five times in 11 tries. Mike Smith is back to ride, and look for the Hall of Fame jockey to put his colt in front right out of the No. 7 gate. ___ WENTTHE DAYWELL Atroubled trip that ended with a speedy finish in the Derby gives Went the Day Well fans hope for an upset. The same team that won last years Derby with Animal Kingdom only to finish a half-length behind Shackleford in the Preakness is confident their Spiral Stakes winner is ready to win a Classic. The New York-bred colt broke poorly from the No. 13 post under jockey John Velazquez, got caught in traffic through the first turn, but rallied in the stretch to close from ninth and 10 lengths back, to fourth and 2-1/2 lengths behind the winner. In a smaller field, look for Velazquez to avoid early trouble breaking from the No. 5 post and emerge as a major threat down the stretch. ___ CREATIVE CAUSE This gray colt is quite familiar with Ill Have Another. He lost to him by a nose in the 1 1/8-mile Santa Anita Derby, and finished fifth three lengths behind two weeks ago in the 1 1/4-mile Derby. However, Creative Cause beat Ill Have Another last year in the Best Pal. He also owns a win over Bodemeister in the 1 1/16mile San Felipe. If jockey Joel Rosario can position Creative Cause in striking position turning for home, the colt would have another chance to show he can finish strong. It didnt happen in the Derby, but the slightly shorter distance may be a positive. ___ TIGER WALK One of the new shooters in the field, hes competed in a trio of graded-stakes races this year.

In the bottom of the third, P ool Paradise tied things up a s Colon crossed the plate and later took the lead when Michael Ford scored on a passed ball. This left the board at 5-4, now in favor of Pool P aradise. L ockhart would have no response to these runs in the top of the fourth, and the Pool boys added insurance as Pecks sacrifice fly to left scored Austin, who hadt ripled. In the top of the fifth, Simons went in to relieve Frazer on the mound for Pool Paradise, and again theL ockhart offense could not sneak in another run. Back-to-back RBIs from Bubba Chavis and Austin added runs for PoolP aradise, at which time Lockhart Service Center sent Stanton to the mound. Simons then drew a walk to bring home Chavis.

The Lake Placid team really came out and played good baseball, said Pool Paradise coach DeanF razier. They put the ball in play and we made errors.

Florida Trail Association Heartland Chapter May Activities GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE News-Sun photo by LAUREN WELBORN Pool Paradise pitcher Trey Frazier makes this throw to first and would overcome his teams early fielding woes to hold off Lockhart in Tuesdays Dixie win. ers, and, of course it would give his championship hopes a real boost, too. By winning a fourth straight crown, Franchitti would become only the seco nd IndyCar driver in history to win five overall titles b reaking a tie with Mario Andretti and Bourdais. Only A.J. Foyt (seven won more. I dont think much in those terms, Franchitti said. I think about what we have to do to win this race. I dont think of any us look at in those terms. You just want to put yourself in the best position in qualifying and then the best position we can in the race. Honda is giving him some help. Last Friday, the only IndyCar manufacturer to use a single turbocharged engine this season won its case to add a new compressor cover a move series officials say will create a more level playing field with what has beena Chevrolet dominated season. T he cover was added at Brazil, where Franchitti had his season-best showing, and on Indys long, flat straightaways, the new design couldr eally make a difference. Theres no question it made them more competitive at Brazil, where they went from being pretty close to ust o having a slight advantage, Power said. Its a much bigger advantage on an oval than a road course because you run wide-open for longer, so the horsepower really makes a difference. Franchitti remains baffled by how the Chevys managed to get two more laps per fuel load in Brazil than he could a touchy subject for a team that gambled on opposite fuel strategies in last years 500 and wound up losing both. Franchitti dropped from second to 12th on the final four laps, partly because ofw orn tires, while teammate Scott Dixon made a late pit s top to get extra fuel and wound up fifth. This season, Dixon, the 2008 Indy winner and a twotime IndyCar champ, is sixtho verall in the points and second among all Honda drivers behind only Simon Pagenaud. Publicly, Franchitti has b een his usually unflappable self. At team headquarters, though, team managing director Mike Hull is preaching patience. What you do is instill on everybody in Darios program that everyone is working on this together and the harder we work, the better its going to be, Hull said. The first test will come Saturday at pole qualifying. Ganassis cars havent exactly been at the top of the speed chart this week. Dixons top practice speed came Monday, 221.499 mph,w hile Franchitti had his fastest lap of the week W ednesday at 221.623. Things are moving in the right direction as Franchitti jumped from 12th on this weeks speed chart to eighth. I s by design. Hull acknowledges Ganassis cars have not been working in qualifying trim and likely wont until Fridayw hen all drivers are given a horsepower boost that is to increase speeds by 4-5 mph. Until then, Franchitti will just keep grinding away. s been a great position for this team to win the last four championships, but you cant be complacent about it, Franchitti said. You have to work at it. We try and do the best we can every week, the guys on the team are always working hard at it. It was a slow start, but it is what it is.

T he change means m any more children could b e diagnosed with high levels of lead in their blood. Too much lead is harmful to developing brains and can mean a lower IQ. Recent research pers uaded government officials that children under 6 could be harmed from lead levels lower than the o ld standard. Most youngsters get it from paint chips or dust in older homes with lead paint. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the change Wednesday.

HEALTHYLIVING Follow the News-Sun online on www.twitter.com/thenewssun Dear Pharmacist: My w ife has osteoporosis in her back pretty badly. I read y our article a few years ago,about strontium being a good mineral for bone h ealth. Do you still recommend today? C.C.,Sacramento A nswer: Everything I said 4 years ago,in my first c olumn holds. Strontium has been clinically proven to support bone health. I wish more physicians would suggest over-the-c ounter strontium supplements before prescribing bone-building bisphosphonatedrugs like Actonel, Boniva and Fosamax or even Evista or Forteo. A 2004 study in New EnglandJ ournal of Medicine concluded that strontium r educes risk of non-vertebral fractures by 41 percent over three years,and increases bone mineral density by 14.4 percent.I mpressive when you compare that to standard treatments! Youre probably wondering WHY no one has mentioned this to you.C onventional practitioners educate themselves at seminars that are not based in functional medicinelike my educational track,so they are not aware of strontiums potential benefits. Doctors interested in scientifically-based holistic medical seminars should visit www.functionalmedicine.or g/. Strontium offers a one two punch with its dual mechanism of action. It prevents bone breakdown, while stimulating new bone growth! Medications work one side of that equation. It may support joint healtha nd prevent tooth decay,in sharp contrast to certain medications which destroy the teeth/jaw. I wonder if it could help with cancerrelated bone pain too? Brand new research publ ished in the Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine a nd Biology said The agent can now be considered as a first-line option to treat women at risk of osteoporosis fractures,w hatever their age and the severity of the disease. Strontium is a natural component of bone,about 100 micrograms in everyg ram of bone,so supplementing enhances more of what you have (or had in the case of osteoporosis). Strontiums brothers include calcium and magnesium,they are all chemically similar. In Europe,there are drug versions called Stronatand Protelos because they patented a unique salt called strontium ranelate. This drug version is used in clinical trials. In the US,non-drug versions of strontium citrateor strontium gluconateare sold at the health food stores,compounding pharmacies or holistic physicians offices. H igh-quality brands include Life Extensions Strontium Caps, O rthoMoleculars Strontium,Nutricologys Strontium Osteo Complex,Solarays BioCitrate Strontium,orD octors Best Strontium Bone Maker.You must have enough calcium iny our body for strontium to work well. Most people do, but if you dont,and youn eed both calcium and strontium,space them apart. For example,take strontium first thing in the morning (empty stomachthen at lunch,take calcium (preferably with vitamin D). When it comes to bone health,vitamin K2,natural progesterone hormone,silica,iodine,zinc,chromium and magnesium are impor-t ant players,and of course weight-bearing exercise. S ome experts now feel that whole grains,which contain phytates,preventa bsorption of minerals essential to bone health. Finally,gluten,caffeine and carbonated beverages are all associated with crumbling bones. Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen S napshots StatePointY ou may not realize it,but your lifestyle could be putt ing you at risk for common health problems that afflict women. Theres no bettert ime than now to brush up on some facts that can help y ou stay healthy.Breast cancer The causes of breast cancer are complicated,but s ome significant risk factors are preventable. Obesity is one such risk,and even moderate weight loss helps protect you. Cutting down ona lcohol will also improve your chances of staying breast cancer-free. Its impossible to eliminate your risk entirely,bute arly detection will improve your prognosis. Conduct regu lar self-breast examinations and let your doctor know ify ou detect anything unusual. Follow the National Cancer Institute guidelines and get a mammogram annually when you turn 40. Toxic Shock Syndrome You may regard Toxic S hock Syndrome (TSS rare,but one in 700 women will experience tamponrelated TSS,according to You ARE Loved,a non-profit working to educate girls and women about the disease. TSS is a bacterial infection characterized by sudden high fever,diarrhea, rash,muscle aches and headache. You can significantly reduce your risk of this life-threatening disease with a trip to the drug store. Historically,tampon use has been linked to half of all TSS cases,so simply switch-i ng to a safer product is a terrific safeguard against this d isease,says Dr. Christine Ko,an expert in womens health. You likely are familiar with pads,but there area lternatives you may find more convenient. For example,Softcup is a flexible cup worn internally around your cervix.Heart disease Many people think heart disease is an exclusively male risk. But women also need to protect their hearts. While severe chest pain is a symptom often associated with heart disease in men, women need to watch for different signs. Talk to your doctor immediately if you experience neck and shoulder pain,dizziness,fatigue and sweating. Y oure never too young to take steps to prevent heart d isease,particularly if it runs in your family.You can keep your heart healthier by reducing saturated fat,cholesterol and salt in your diet,a nd getting regular exercise. While depression and smoking can adversely affect anyones heart,The Mayo Clinic reports these risk fac-t ors are greater in women. So cut out cigarettes and take steps to treat mental stress right away. Most importantly,learn your risk for common health problems,so you can take steps to improve your chances of staying healthy. Tips for women to prevent common health problems StatePoint Look for products that arent related to TSS. WASHINGTON (AP expensive to eat healthy? A new Agriculture Department study counters a common perception that junk food is cheaper than a nutritionally balanced meal. It all depends on how prices are measured. Pastries and processed snacks high in fat,sugar or salt may seem a bargain if the price is measured by calories. By weight or portion size,grains,vegetables and fruits are less expensive. The cost of eating healthy foods has been the subject of growing debate. Experts warn that a third of U.S. adults are obese,and expect that number to grow to 42 percent by 2030. A report two years ago by University of Washington researchers concluded that calorie-for-calorie,eating junk food is more cost-effective for low-income people than eating healthy.

We often hear about wars on TV, churches splitting,b itterness and strife in homes, and local violence in schools and neighborhoods. The question you may be asking is what is t he cause? Furthermore, is there a cure? Gods word gives us a clear explanation. I Kings 12 tells about the division of Israel and Judah f ollowing the reign of Solomon as king over I srael. After obtaining great wealth and wisdom, S olomon turned away from the Lord and sought after o ther gods. God warned that He would take the k ingdom away. The Lords w ords to Solomon were the following for not obeying in I Kings 11:11: Because you have done this, andh ave not kept my covenant and my statutes, which I h ave commanded you, I will surely tear the kingdom away from you and give it to your servant. Solomons son, Rehoboam, took his place as king over all of Israel (I Kings 11:43). When Rehoboam became king, Jeroboam went to him along with the people of Israel and asked him to lighten their load. Your father made our yoke heavy; now therefore, lighten the burdensome service of your father, and his heavy yoke which he put on us, and we will serve you (I Kings 12:4 instructed them to come back in three days. While waiting for their return, he went before the elders who had stood under his father Solomon for counsel. There response was the following: If you will be a servant to these people today, and serve them, and answer them, and speak good w ords to them, then they will be your servants forever(I Kings 12:7 R eheboam refused the advice of the elders, and when Jeroboam returned, Reheboam told him, And now, whereas my father puta heavy yoke on you, I will add to your yoke; my father chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scourges! (I Kings 12:11).F rom this point on, the people of Israel rebelled a gainst Rehoboam except the tribe of Judah andB enjamin. When Jeroboam returned to the people after getting rejected, the people of Israel made him the King. I Kings 12:20 impliest hat this is when Israel and Judah became a divided nation. Following the divide of Israel and Judah,R ehoboam, proceeded to start a fight against Israel thinking that he might be able to restore the kingdom. He had 180,000 warriors prepared. However, God delivered a message to Rehoboam through a man named Shemiah, a man of God (I Kings 12:21, 22 Thus says the Lord: You shall not go up nor fight against your brethren the children of Israel, Let every man return to his house, for this thing is from Me(I Kings 12:24). If we consider the behavior of Rehoboam, many might agree that he was prideful. His rejection of the elderscounsel shows he may have been lacking a servants heart of humility. Selfishness was clearly evident. He decided it would be his way and that was all.H e was not willing to consider how other might have been feeling. Lets think about the story from I Kings and o ther events that you or I are even more familiar with in our lives currently. My original question was, what i s the problem? James 4:1,2 says, Where do wars and f ights come from among you? Do they not come f rom desires for pleasures that war in your members? Y ou lust and do not have. You murder and covet andc annot obtain. You fight and war What is the cure? Each of us on an individual levelc an only take responsibility f or ourselves in how we respond in any situationw here there is conflict. Lets remember that Godsw ays and mans contradict one another. God has given a clear answer that the cure for division and strife is h umility. James 4:6-10 says, But He gives moreg race. Therefore He says: God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble. Therefore submit to God.R esist the devil and he will f lee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you doubleminded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. Leslie Deese is a Sebring resident.

Avon Park Knights donate to Special STARS The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Finally, someone has come up with a weight loss program I can sink my teeth into without guilt. And, I say its about time. I cant speak for anybody else, but Im fed up with diet programs that simply beat me to death. Im tired of starving myself under the pretense of dieting, and exercising my body to the brink of absolute exhaustion. Its about time someone looked on the lighter side of dieting. According to a study in A thens, Greece, scientists h ave found a good laugh is a c alorie burner not to be i gnored. You can be sure this gained my attention. Some American researchers found that 10 to 15 minutes of genuine gigg ling can burn off the number of calories found in a m edium square of chocolate. T hese scientists discovered a w ay to measure how many calories people burn when they laugh. When I read this, I laughed for 39 minutes, allowing me to eat two medium squares of chocolate. At this rate, Ill be able to eat several pounds of chocolate a day. Now thats what I call a diet. According to their findings, the average person burns 20 percent more calories when laughing, compared to not laughing. If somebody laughs for 10 or 15 minutes a day they would burn up to 50 calories, depending on body size and the intensity of the laughter. This means if I laughed for 10 to 15 minutes a day, I would burn enough calories to lose 4-1/2 pounds in a year. Thats nothing to laugh at. This means in 50 years I would completely disappear from the face of the earth. Which poses a question; when a person loses weight, w here does that weight go? Im not one to jump on the latest bandwagon but there is nothing funny about carrying around extra weight. For some its like having a monkey on their back, for me its more like a gorilla. Up to this point, my w eight loss program has b een a laughing matter. Little did I know my laughing was burning calories! My exercise program has been a real joke, which may have done me good and I didnt know it. To be honest, m y regimen has not prod uced the results I desired. J ust a few years ago, I e xercised my right as an American citizen to vote for the president of my choice, w hich has been quite taxing on me, you can be sure. This kind of exercise takes more o ut of a person than realized a t the time and must be good because I lost a great chunk o f money in paying my taxes t his year. E very day I exercise my right to remain silent when t he Gracious Mistress of the P arsonage is giving me a piece of her mind. Although I have not lost any weight with this exercise, I havent lost any arguments, either. Personally, I think its a good trade-off. N ow, with this new information I shall change my whole approach to dieting. Instead of working hard,e xercising every day and watching what I eat, I shall throw caution to the wind and laugh all day long. I shall laugh off all criticism with good humor. I shall roll in the aisles with uncontrollable mirth. My only concern is that I dont die laughing. For the observant person, like Yours Truly, each dayp rovides plenty of things to laugh about. My only problem is to know exactly w here to start. I could start laughing at my Beloved but Im sure I would lose something other than weight, so I dont want to go there, if you know what I mean. Agood guffaw, Ive discovered, carries more thanj ust personal benefits. An old proverb says, Laugh, and the whole world laughs with you. So, I can see where my laughing is going to help other people lose weight. W hy didnt somebody think of this before? I may have lost some time; but be assured I am determined to giggle my way to supremeh ealth in the days and months ahead. To begin my regimen of laughter, I only need to wake up in the morning. Believe me when I say, not wakingu p in the morning is no laughing matter. W hen I wake up, I yawn, stretch and then go to the bathroom. One look in them irror is good for a good belly laugh, which helps s tart the day in the right direction. For the next laugh, I turn to the early morning news programs, which is good fora laugh-a-minute. We truly live in a funny world, at l east for the person who takes the time to see the f unny side of the street. All those people on early m orning television seriously think what they say is important. When in reality, very little of what they say makes any difference in any-o nes day. If they only knew how insignificant their opini ons are, they probably wouldnt get up in the morning and go to work. Theyg ive, on any given morning, sidesplitting, rib-tickling, l augh-a-minute exercises. If you happen to see me walking down the street with a smile all over my face, dont be alarmed. I ame ngaged in my Laughtercise for the day. merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.( Proverbs 17:22). The Rev. James L.

A good-looking cast of p opular actors can only do so much with material thats superficial and sitcommy. Director Kirk Jonesfilm is inspired bythe HeidiM urkoff advice book of the same name,one that every single pregnant woman on the planet surely has read since its initial publication in 1985. But similar to 2009s Hes Just Not That Into You,the script from Shauna Cross and Heather Hach merely uses a familiar non-fiction title as a leapingoff point to explore various intertwined relationships, ostensibly for hilarious comic effect. There are some laughs here and there and a few recognizable moments of honesty. Elizabeth Banks character begins to touch on something relatable; an author and owner of a breastfeeding boutique,she finds her militant stances hard to maintain once she becomes pregnant herself. As shes about to give a big speech,she realizes all the platitudes written on her note cards are glossy and false; instead,she opens her mouth and dares to share her third-trimester misery with a h uge,gawking crowd. Then again,this is one of those embarrassing moments of vulnerability that always seem to take place in fronto f a huge,gawking crowd in romantic comedies. More often,we get the kind of contrived,shrieky wackiness that breaks outw hen all the pregnant women whose stories weve been following just happen to give birth at the same hospital on the same night. Being crowd-pleasing was obviously more important that being truthful. We begin with Cameron Diaz as Jules,a fitness expert and the host of a Biggest Loser-style reality show. She didnt expect to be expecting with Evan (Matthew Morrison),her partner on a Dancing With the Stars-style reality show, but now these two must finda way to juggle a baby along with their new relationship and high-profile careers. Jennifer Lopez plays Holly,a photographer whos been trying for years to conceive with her husband,Alex (Rodrigo Santorowith no luck. There hoping to adopt an orphan from Ethiopia,an emotionally intense,lifechanging moment for which Lopezs character apparently felt the need to wear fake eyelashes. B anksWendy also has been trying to have a baby f or a while with her husband,Gary (Ben Falcone). Once the test finally comesu p positive and they go to tell Garys father (Dennis Quaid),an arrogant former N ASCAR legend,they find that dad and his new trophy w ife (Brooklyn Decker) also have gotten pregnant with no trouble at all. This competitive daddy-issue subplot, which culminates with az any golf-cart showdown,is one of the more flimsy and clichid elements of the film. Then theres the twentysomething Rosie (Anna Kendrick) and Marco (Chace Crawford),competing food-t ruck entrepreneurs and former high school classmates w ho werent all that careful when they finally gave into their flirtations one night. Kendrick is,as always, adorable and accessible ands he and Crawford have a nice chemistry with each other. Jones bops around between all these stories at as teady pace and only finds real energy when he comes back to the dadsgroup, which Alex joins in preparation for fatherhood. Within seconds of watching Rock riff on what its really like to be a parent, you get a glimpse of how good this movie might have been. Instead,you should probably keep your expectations in check.

Her two boys also live with us. Donnas older son will graduate from high school this year,and she hasp lanned a party that her mother and other family members will attend from out of state. My daughter,Sara,is graduating from the sameh igh school. Sara has shared her concerns with m e that Donnas family wont care about celebrating her graduation. I triedt o assure her that its my day to celebrate her a ccomplishment with her. I discussed this with Donna and asked if we could recognize Sara at her sons party. Donna refusedb ecause my ex is having a party for Sara,and her son w ould be an invited guest but not the celebrated graduate there. I say its a different scenario because Im Saras f ather and if I were remarried,wed celebrate the step-sibling graduationt ogether. Donna then told me she has some issues with the way Sara behaves a t times. I feel this has given me an insight that I d ont like. How should I handle this upcoming graduation and other important issues? Mixed Feeling in M issouri Dear Mixed Feelings: Handle the graduation and other important issues by keeping them SEPARATE. While it would be generous for Sara to be acknowl-e dged at Donnas sons party,it isnt mandatory a nd Im sure the reverse isnt planned for the party your ex is hosting for Sara. What the circumstances ould beif you andD onna were married instead of living together is irrelevant because you are not married and the graduates are not step-siblings.H owever,this does point up that Donna has not warmed to Sara as much as she might have and you might wish she had. And, because it could be a dealbreaker,this is an issue that should be examined carefully in the very near future. Dear Abby: Im a 16year-old girl. I love my mother,but she puts very little effort into how she looks. She has beend ivorced since I was a baby and hasnt dated m uch. When it comes to how we dress,we are complete opposites. I like top ut on real clothes,even if Im accompanying my m om to the grocery store. She goes out wearing sweats and no bra. Sometimes I try to help her by picking out her out-f its for the week,but she gets mad when I say anyt hing about her no-bra rule. She says Im trying to pressure her to be someones hes not. Maybe I am,but I want her to meet people a nd go on dates. It feels like she has no pride in what she looks like. I carea bout her,but I cant help but see that she could improve. Doting Daughter in Maryland D ear Doting Daughter: We could all improve, but if your mother is comfortable with herself as she is,you should try to accepth er that way. Many women find bras uncomfortable, and if they dont have to wear them they dont especially when wearing loose sweatshirts. Your mother appears to b e happy with her circumstances. When shes ready t o try to attract male attention,she will. You are sweet to want to help her, but trying to manipulate her isnt working,so forb oth your sakes,cut it out.

Dad not eager to celebrate at rival graduation parties Dear Abby Associated PressBruce Seidel is confident the future of food television wont be seen on television. Which is why the Food Network and Cooking Channel veteran has checked out of network TV to oversee the launch of YouTubes latest original content channel, HUNGRY.The channel,which goes live on July 2,is expected to feature a freewheeling blend of how-to and celebrity-driven food videos. The venture is part of the Google Inc.owned video sites plan to launch roughly 100 channels of niche-oriented programming. Earlier this month,YouTube pledged to spend some $200 million to help market those channels across Google and its advertising network. Seidel was drawn to the project in part for YouTubes ability to create a more direct community with viewers than generally is possible with network television. It also offered more flexibility not just for viewers, but also for producers,who can more easily experiment with format and content. YouTube also offers an enviably large and young demographic,truly the icing on advertiserscake. By CHRISTY LEMIRE A P Movie CriticThis is big,dumb fun that knows its big,dumbf un and enthusiastically embraces its big,dumb, fun nature. Director Peter Berg has crafted an almost fetishis-t ic homage to Michael Bay like the ransformersseries, this is yet another action extravaganza inspired by a Hasbro product withi ts epic set pieces,swaggering bravado,panorami c skies and cheesy romance. It doesnt lean all the w ay into parody,but rather feels more like an a ffectionate and knowing approximation of a very specific,muscular genre: one of those the-world-isending-were-all-gonna-d ie movies. And because its a little c heeky and doesnt seem to take itself totally seriously,its more enjoyablet han one might expect from a movie based on a b oard game created in the 1960s. Yes,it can be deafeni ngly noisy between the crunch and shriek of giant metal objects fighting e ach other and the blaring rock anthems meant to p ump up the crowd even further. No,its not subtle between the annihilation caused by alien invadersa nd the rousing sense of patriotism thats the real weapon in this battle. But then again,would you really expect (or want) subtlety from this type of big-budget sum-m er escape? Speaking of blockb usters,Taylor Kitsch gets more to work with here than he did earlier this year in John Carter as Alex Hopper. A slacker and troublemaker at the films start, he joins the Navy at the insistence of his older brother,Stone (AlexanderS karsgard). A certain gorgeous blonde named Sam (Brooklyn Decker) also provides some inspiration. Flash-forward and Alex is a lieutenant on one Naval destroyer while Stone is the commanding officer of another. Both answer to Adm. Shane (a withering,wellcast Liam Neeson),who happens to be Sams father. There all taking part in some international war games off the Hawaiian coast when oops! a satellite signal sent to a newly discovered planet that looks a lot like ours in a neighboring galaxy provokes some angry extraterrestrials. Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence,action and destruction,and for language. 131 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. Battleship i s big, dumb fun YouTube launching food channel
