C M Y K More than 20 million people tuned in for the seasonf inale of American Idolon May 23. While the programs r atings are down,many continue to obsess over every detail of a glorified talents how,even while tens of thousands of U.S. troops f ight in Afghanistan. With all due respect to Phillip Phillips,the winner oft his years contest,I got to meet a real celebrity on May 24 in Bethesda,Md. His n ame is Staff Sgt. Travis Mills,and the wounded warr ior represents all that is good about our country. The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is a place where startling exam-p les of our militarys post9/11 sacrifices are tragically commonplace. While walking through the enormous facilitys long hallways,I saw several wounded warriors many with severe injuries r oll by on their wheelchairs. Many of these heroes are b arely old enough to buy a beer. Staff Sgt. Mills is 25,and his wife,Kelsey,gave birth to their first child about sevenm onths before an Apr. 10 explosion robbed the soldier of both his arms and legs. I was holding their baby girl, Chloe,when the woundedA rmy paratrooper came out of the hospital elevator with his wife. Seeing a young,handsome man without four limbs for the first time is a visceral experience. But not for one second did I look away,as I was proud to be in the company of someone who sacrificed so much to protect the families of civilians like me. As I put my hand on his shoulder to say thanks,the Vassar,Mich. native looked up,smiled,and said five simple words. Hos it going?Staff Sgt. Mills said. Im Travis. Perhaps the most unique aspect of the visit was getting to see Travis interact with Ryan Manion. Ryan lost her brother,Marine 1st Lt. Travis Manion,26,in Iraq on Apr. 29,2007. We visited the Mills family to show our support and provide emergency financial assistance from the Travis Manion Foundation. Ryan immediately bonded with the wounded warrior, who shares her brothers first name and his powerful, intrinsic urge to serve our country.As they talked about the challenges of the six weeks since an enemy improvised explosive device changed the soldiers life, Ryan gave him a pep talk. oure allowed to spend some time feeling sorry for yourself,she said with a smile. But just remember that you get see your beautiful little girl grow up. Travis nodded his head, looked at Chloe,and incredibly,said he was a lucky man. If an enemy snipers bullet had struck Ryans brother a f ew inches in either direction, 1st Lt. Manion may have c ome home in a wheelchair instead of a flag-draped casket. I would give anything to haveTravis here,no matterw hat kind of shape he was in,Ryan told the Mills family. As Ryan showed compassion for another hero named Travis,the quadruple amputee showed the sameg enuine empathy towards her. Witnessing the interaction b etween two people who have been so deeply affected by Americas post-9/11 conflicts was both sobering and enlightening. B aby Chloe is too young to understand whats happened to her dad,yet she loves him more than ever. She often sits at the base of his wheelchair where a patients legs would normally rest and gives him huge bear hugs.G iven the love thats surrounding Travis,as well as h is positive attitude,there is reason for optimism amid incomprehensible pain. A s Americans,we can no longer ignore the sacrifices o f our troops and their families. While there is nothing wrong with distracting our-s elves by going to the movies or watching a realityTV show,too many of us part icularly some in the national media are creating an a lternate reality while our country is still at war. My reminder of Americas continuing conflict is a red, white,and blue braceletg iven to me by the Mills family. On one side is the address of a wonderful website set up to rally around the wounded soldier:travismills.org. American herois written on the other. S taff Sgt. Travis Mills objects to being called an A merican hero. In his mind, he was just doing his job. In mine,he is a real-life American Idol.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunS EBRING A Sebring man was charged with dama ging state lands along the northwest shore of Lake Jackson in Sebring by usinga tractor to clear and till a quarter-mile-long,100-yardw ide swath of lake bottom. A month-long investigation by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission resulted in ac itation to William D. Askin, 46. Askin admitted to mowi ng aquatic plants and tilling the exposed lake bottom without a permit. The viola-t ion (F.S. 375.314) for damaging state property with a m otor vehicle is a seconddegree misdemeanor punishable by up to $1,000 and/or6 0 days in jail. Askin will pay a $459.25 fine. In addition to damaging t he lake bottom,it is also likely that bird nests were d estroyed. However,we did not witness that damage occurring,said Matt Ervin, investigating officer for the FWC. Anyone responsiblef or destruction of state and federally protected species could face much steeper fines. Bird enthusiasts reported the violation to the FWC on May 6. According to Askin,f riends who live near the lake asked him to mow the area to i mprove their view.Askin admitted to having engaged in the practice for several years. Unfortunately,this type o f illegal activity is becoming more common as Highlands County and other inland areas grow in population,with our wildlife andf isheries suffering for it, FWC Lt. Joe Allen said. D amage to state lands or other illegal activity involvi ng fish and wildlife should be reported to the Wildlife Alert Hotline by texting Tip@MyFWC.com or by t elephoning 888-404-3922. Those reporting illegal activi ty may remain anonymous and be eligible for a reward upon conviction of a violator. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, June 8, 2012Page 3A PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 3.639"; 16"; Black p lus three; process, 90458-liquor; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 2 2 4 4 2 2 GB'S LADIES & MENS FORMAL WEAR; 5.542"; 5"; Black plus three; process, 6/8/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 4 4 4 4 1 1 News-SunSEBRING The identity of a 2o-year-old who drowned Friday was released by the Highlands County Sheriff's Office today.

Centennial Committee, Chamber prep for celebration By SAMANTHA GHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comS EBRING Sherell Simpson is beyond excited and ready for another year of the summer program she designed and founded. S impson is the mind behind the Smart Girls M inistry Inc.,a newly labeled a non-profit organi-z ation that focuses on uplifting and directing young girls on a path to a better life. This summer marks the s econd run of the Smart Girls Ministry Summer Workshop,which will take place June 25-29. The program is a unique a nd fun way for girls in grades 5-12 to get a new perspective on their lives while occupying themselves during the summer. e are losing our girls, said Simpson. We are losing them. They are becoming early moms,prostituting themselves,becoming dropouts. This program is a way to uplift them. Not only is Simpson hoping to steer the girls in a positive direction,she is working to break up the monotony of summer vacation. They get bored. My daughter tells me Mom, Im bored.This gives them something to do and look forward to,Simpson said. S mart GirlsMinistry works to present the young ladies with positive selfactualized women so that each girl will be able to seet heir potential.The program is faith-based and m inistry and religion play a major role in the everydayp rocess of the program. e want the girls to see the vision that God has for their lives. The Lord blessed me and put some-o ne in my path and planted the seed for this (program),said Simpson. The first workshop brought in 33 girls,most ofw hich were middle-school aged,Simpsons target group. Middle schoolers are at a persuasive age and Simpson wants to get those girls in a positive program and lifestyle rather than having them fall into the wrong crowd and begin a life of negative choices. This year we are hoping to get 50 girls. Of course,if we get more we wont turn them away. We will do what we can to accommodate everyone,Simpson said. Its going to be a fun and laugh-filled environment. We will boost them up,thats what we want to do. The Smart Girls M inistry also teaches the girls how to be a serviceminded individual through its community outreach day as well as teaching thea ttendees career goals, planning and life skills, s ocial interaction and much more. The program willa lso include entertainment from a well-known Miami gospel artist,activities, daily lunches,and snacks.

C M Y K And the GOP-led L egislatures law imposing a 48-hour deadline on the League of Women Voters,R ock the Vote and other thirdparty groups that hold voter registration drives is a bust,af ederal judge rules. Democrats cry voter supp ression. Republicans insist there simply trying to prevent voter fraud. Whos right? T he problem is the way state GOP leaders in Florida ( and various other GOP-led states) are going about it. They want to preventa problem that theres no evidence even exists. It carriest he stench of voter suppression in a presidential election y ear when Florida is among a handful of swing states key to victory for either PresidentB arack Obama or his Republican opponent,Mitt R omney. Back in the contentious p residential nail-biter of 2000,the integrity of Floridas voting system wasc hallenged by butterfly ballots and dimpled chads and a purge of thousands of voterst he state deemed to be ineligible felons when,in fact,they w ere eligible to vote. Those structural problems were fixed years later by federala nd state laws,with new ballot scan machines in Florida a nd rules that made early voting possible days before the official Election Day. The point was to have access to voting and transparency. B ut now,Florida seems to be heading back to those Flori-duhdays of purging voters who have every right to vote and finding ways to limity oung people,immigrants and minorities who typically l ean Democrat from voting with onerous rules on voterregistration drives,restrictions U.S. District JudgeR obert Hinkle called risky businessfor those groups that faced $1,000 in fines if they submit new voter forms past the 48-hour rule. H inkle struck down the 48hour limit and a requirement that voter registration groupsd isclose the names of volunteers who dont even collect the forms. His injunctionr eturns Florida to a much more flexible 10-day timeline t o submit voter forms. Scott,who set up residence in the Sunshine State only af ew years ago,should be sensitive to Florida votersconc erns about transparency, even if those voters are not from his party. He is the governor of all Floridians,after all. Appealing the judgesd ecision just a couple of months before the August prim ary for state and congressional elections would be the wrong course.

Are the teachers being allowed to teach them these basics or are they held accountable for how well they do on some test? Maybe I am way off base, but it seems we have a lot of educated fools and a lot of people with no common sense. Am I the only person who feels this way? I think not,but would appreciate hearing other comments.

Judy Bronso n Sebring The Obama administration is no friend of farmers,and the recent stunt involving the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sending spy planes over the state of Nebraska to keep an eye on where cows drop their patties is the latest example of overreach by an administration that is bent on controlling every aspect of our lives,but farming in particular. According to the Lincoln Journal Star,the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality has been overseeing the health of Nebraskas waters for more than 30 years,and its director, Mike Linder,says hes not sure why the flyovers are taking place. Why let the states do for themselves what our allknowing,all-seeing government can do for them? At an agricultural conference in November 2011 keynote speaker and environmental attorney,Harriet Hageman,warned The EPA is one of the most insidious organizations in the US.and is a prime example of regulation without representation. Farmers and ranchers have similar concerns about Obamas U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). During a bus tour across rural America last summer,Obama was confronted time and again by ranchers and farmers concerned that unsubstantiated regulation was regulating them out of business. According to the National Cattlemens Beef Association,proposed USDA regulations would cost 114,000 jobs nationwide and increase retail meat prices more than three percent.A statistic likely lost on a president whose discriminating palate includes $100 steaks. Certainly no one can forget the USDAs attempt to impose a Christmas tree tax(fee improve the image and marketing of Christmas trees.Bah humbug. Last fall,the Department of Labor (DOLgulate the relationship shared between parents and their kids on family farms. According to Politico,the proposed rule would have prohibited those under age 16 from manual labor like stall cleaning using a shovel and using a batteryoperated screwdriver. When I was a kid,this type of manual labor was called Saturday morning chores. The bill also limited exposure to sunlight based upon wind speed and humidity as well as participation in 4-H clubs. And Mrs. Obama wonders why our kids are so fat. Last but not least,the Department of Transportation (DOT) proposed a rule that would reclassify all farm vehicles as commercial motor vehicles meaning anyone driving a tractor or operating certain farm equipment would require a commercial drivers license. Never mind the fact that many farm workers are migrant workers who do not qualify for driverslicenses,let alone commercial driverslicenses. Admittedly,farmers have their hands dirty in this corner they find themselves backed into. Farming subsidies almost invite the government to meddle in an industry it plays such a big role in propping up. But farms are not just part of the fabric of this country; American farms provide much needed food aid to the third world. When you apply bureaucratic pressure to any industry, you run the risk of driving those same workers out of the industry,which becomes self-defeating. Government control of the farming industry is illustrative of the Obama Administration which operates more like a dictatorship than a representative democracy.Whether its farming, healthcare,the auto industry or energy production,there is no amount of government intervention and overreach that can replace good,old-fashioned American ingenuity and hard work.

C M Y K feet of clearance on the left. Breylinger pointed out the danger to the tubers. All was well,until Evan Stover who is autistic was swept toward the tree. The tube was pulled under the trunk and Evans legs were caught. He initially saved himself by clinging to the trunk,but the water flowed over his head and it was all he could do to keep from being sucked under. Breylinger,McGrath and another young man,Carl Rivera,saw what happened. Like Stover,however,they could not steer in the swift current,so shot by Stover and had to clear a rapids before heading back. Breylinger said what happened next was one of the bravest acts hes witnessed. McGrath steered to shore, threw his tube to one side and ran back to Stover as fast as he could. He was very quick, Breylinger said. He didnt stop to think. He raced across an island to reach the tree. McGrath said the only way he could help was to get into the water himself,wading in waist deep,dealing with a slick rock bed. Even then the current was so strong all Kenneth could was hang on to Stover and help him keep his head above water. Breylinger and Rivera were not far behind and quickly joined McGrath. It took all three of them to get Stover to shore. Breylinger and McGrath praise Stover for remaining calm in a life or death situation. He didnt panic at all, McGrath said. McGrath is a member of the high schools Air Force JROTC program. Breylinger wrote a letter documenting the incident. The letter was passed on the headquarters for AFJROTC at Maxwell Air Force Base, Ala. As result,McGrath has been awarded the Gold Medal of Valor. It recognizes outstanding voluntary acts of self-sacrifice and personal bravery ... (with ous risk of life above and beyond the call of duty. McGrath,going into his junior year,wants to go to the U. S. Naval Academy and then become a Marine. enny is special, Breylinger said Thursday morning. Hes a very responsible young man.

A dvertising fees for the lots,said Administrative Services Director Jed Secory,are $50.40,but the certified mail fees of$ 4.44 plus the registered mail fee to Canada,Puerto Rico,both close to $15, and the sheriffs office fee of $40 to process the tax deed are all part of the countys expenses on top of the taxes. It was a mess before the housing boom,and then it was solved for a short time,now its a problem again,said Macbeth. One of the problems with the sale of the property is the special assessments on Sun N Lake properties for internal improvements and golf course upkeep. Some of the folks decide they dont want to buy the lots once they learn of the assessments, Germaine said. A quick search of the Clerk of Courts website at www.hcclerk.org shows liens for assessments on several properties that exceed $45,000 on lots appraised around $7,000. The Sun N Lake Improvement District will not foreclose for special assessments,according to Macbeth,because the countys property taxes will be due. Germaine explained that approximately $2.1 million in back taxes were now due on the 1,655 parcels the county will soon own. e wont pay the assessments and they wont foreclose on the assessments because they dont want to pay the taxes. So these will sit in limbo,Macbeth said. Continued from page 1A in property values was driven this year by a drop in market values. or residential and some c ommercial property,we are seeing lower sale prices,McIntyre said. Agricultural property and some commercialr entals are based on income from the property,including mobile home parks. Those are kind of stable right now,McIntyre said. The removal of groves d ue to disease has affected some of the tax collections, a ccording to McIntyre,but not significantly. Grove owners get a sort o f abatement from the state to encourage them to r emove diseased trees,but that is expected. That property returns to a market value assessment if it remains vacant. Vacant land prices have continued to slightly decrease,said McIntyre. Based on the 2011 sales, we continue to see vacant land slow. It is not like roller coaster slide,and it seems to be tapering out.B ut it continues to drop, McIntyre said. County Administrator Ricky Helms explained to the public that the impact of the estimated tax dropw ould be approximately $2 million less in revenue in t he general fund. Property taxes equal 56 percent of the $56 milliond ollar general fund,Helms said. If you want to know t he dollar impact,just over $2 million.

When her father retired, t he family settled in Highlands County where he had grown up. Fleck entered Sebring High School,but moved ont o South Florida Community College in her junior year,graduating witha high school diploma through SFCCs adult edu-c ation program half way through what would have b een her senior year. She married Chuck Fleck r ight of school,had two beautifuldaughters,and stayed home to raise them. As time passed,however, she became restless. In1 975 she went back to SFCC and earned a Licensed Practical Nurse certification. It became clear to her b efore long,however,that she needed more education. Fleck went back to school and earned a bachelors degree in teaching. She chose to specialize in exceptional student education,joined the district and entered the classroom. I loved teaching,said Fleck,who was once voted teacher of the year at Sebring Middle School. She described a special five years when she and Sandi Whidden now principal at Sebring Middle School taught in a pilot program focused on early drop-out prevention. Something happened then that changed the course of her career. She began to lose her hearing. The problem got so bad she could no longer hear young voices,and needed aids to hear adults. Unable to teach,but unwilling to leave educa-t ion,Fleck turned to administrative work. She was an a ssistant principal at Sebring High School and later the principal of Lake P lacid Middle School. Fleck said the longer she spent in schools the more she became aware of the importance to prepare stu-d ents for the digital future. As a principal she helped pilot several programs aimed at bringing computers into the classroom andp roviding students with Internet access. W hen she was recruited to head the department ofM anagement Information Systems it was a natural fit, she said. Then curriculum director Anne Lindsey left the dis-t rict. Fleck was again recruited to take over that position. In keeping the 21st century economy, Fleck took on curriculum ina ddition to her MIS duties. Now,Fleck said,she has been recruited again,this time to run for elected office. People said it was time for an instructional leader at the helm,she said. Fleck said,My goals are committed to the classroom.They include increasing student achievement by providing more support and resources to schools and teachers,utilizing technology to the fullest,and developing a plan to create effective instructional leadership succession at each of our schools. Fleck also wants to coordinate emergency response efforts with county agencies and law enforcement and provide on-going emergency training for all school administrators and staff. Continued from page 1A v eteran Bill Farmer). Fiona,however,is having an affair with Bob Philips (played by newcomer Kevin Hacker). Bobs wife Teresa (played by HLT v eteran Ellen Lemos) is something of a shrew. She certainly isnt going to let him get away with anything. For example,in one scene she attacks Bob witha soup ladle. C hris Martin (another veteran HLT actor) plays the character of William Detwiler. Dawn Balsamo,a newcomer,p lays his wife Mary. William and Bob work for Frank. The complication occurs when Bob a nd Fiona independently use William and Mary as alibis to hide their affair f rom their spouses. This leads to confusion about who is having an affair with whom. T he staging of the play is different from the usual. With the curtain up as t he audience gathers,the set is divided into two living rooms the swank Foster home on the one side and the scruffy Philips house on the other. When the couples are in their homes a t the same time it is like watching two plays at once. Finely tuned timing k eeps the audience from becoming as confused as the characters. In one dinner scene the dinning room t able is divided in half and two meals on two different days are played sideb y-side. The play is very demanding, Lemos said,one of the hardest roles I ve played. Its been a real challenge. She laughed. There are a lot of fights. I kick everybodys butt. The worst part,Lemos added,is that Teresa is really mean,and I foundm yself talking to my real husband like t hat. I had to tone down the drama. Dobson-Hacker said she got involved because her husband is a good friend of W ades. Wade assured Dobson-Hacker she would be fine. Ill pull the performance out of you,Dobson-Hacker said Wade told her. And she did. Im hav-i ng more fun than Ive had in years, a nd thats a true statement. (Fiona a sexy side to her that I really enjoy playing. B ill Farmer has been in dozens of HLT productions.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comWhile Corbin Hoffner made his decision Wednesday and is off toward his baseball future, Lake Placid grad Dylan WeberCallahans is still up in the air. Much like his good friend from Sebring, WeberCallahan had a breakout freshman season with the Bees of the Savannah College of Art and Design, otherwise known as SCAD. After a few relief appearances to get his feet wet, he cracked the starting rotation a nd by seasons end was the staff ace. During my first few appearances I was definitely a little nervous, he said. After that first start against Flagler College, I began to relax a little bit more and realized that I could handle pitching a gainst teams of this cali ber The stats certainly bore that out, as Weber-Callahanw ould post a 2.17 ERA, givi ng up just 19 earned runs in 78.2 innings, tossing one shutout among his five complete games. In high school I batted, played first, third, right and pitched, which gave me minimal time to work on my p itching, he said. Once I got to SCAD, I was only focusing on one position. I think that was the main reason for my improvement this season. He and the Bees capped off the season in fine fashion, going into the Sun Conference Tournament as the final seed, they took down top-seed EmbryRiddle, 7-1, behind WeberCallahans complete-game performance. The team By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Its been a whirlwind this week for Sebring graduate Corbin Hoffner, who as of Wednesday night officially became a member of the Chicago Cubs organization. It was little more than 24 hours earlier that area social media was engulfed in the news that Hoffner had been drafted by the Cubs in the 14th round of the 2012 Major League Baseball Amateur Draft, and already area scout Ed Durkin was in the Hoffner home for his final decision whether to sign with the team or to give his college career one more year and perhaps improve his stock for next years draft. It had, after all, been a breakout season for the towering right-hander in his first year at St. Petersburg College. After a strong career as a Blue Streak, Hoffner took to the mound for the Titans and posted a 2.52 ERAand amassed 73 strikeouts in his 71 innings pitched. Those numbers, along with his 6-foot, 5-inch frame, had heads turning and he got an invite to a workout and an indication of what was to come. I went to a Cubs pre-draft workout a couple of weeks ago in Clearwater at Jack Russell Stadium, Hoffner said. They told me they would be in touch. After Mondays first two rounds were done, the 40round draft headed into Tuesday. Around the eighth round, both the Blue Jays and the Cubs called and were wonSebrings Hoffner selected, signed by Cubs T T w w o o a a r r e e a a h h u u r r l l e e r r s s h h a a v v e e v v e e r r y y d d i i f f f f e e r r e e n n t t o o p p t t i i o o n n s s SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, June 8, 2012 Page 3B Decisions, decisions News-Sun photo courtesy of KIM GAUGER Corbin Hoffner made it official Wednesday, signing his name in front of area scout Ed D urkin to become a member of the Chicago Cubs organization.

CHOICE, Page 4B Fishin Around Don Norton For those of you who read BASS TIMES, a publication of B.A.S.S., editor Matt Vincent started h is column with this statement, In a museum in Havana there are two skulls of Christopher Columbus; one when he was a boy and one when he was a man. In May of 2004, that w as my opening paragraph in my first column at a previous newspaper. Tall tales and outright lies have always been associated with fishing and fishermen. I have been known to stretch the truth a time or two when itc omes to fishing, but I will do my best to keep the information in this column honest, interesting and most of all informative. I moved from Avon Park, to Medina, Ohio in 2006 and moved b ack to Sebring in April of this year. My wife and I couldnt be happier! Although I grew up in Ohio, Florida became my home bac k in 1990 and for the last 6 years in Ohio, Ive been daydreaming about the great fishing and weather here. Sure, I did my share of fishing for walleye, smallmouth and steelhead, in fact I even qualified for a few Fish Ohio awards, but it just wasnt the same. Once bass fishing gets in your blood, it never leaves. So now that Im back, Im anxious to get out on the many great fishing lakes we have here in Highland s County and share my fishing successes and failures with you. One of the most interesting things abo ut this area is the variety of lakes and rivers we have to fish and I fish them all. I also fish bass tournaments or at least I make a donation and show up so from time to time I will be reporting on who won what they caught and hopefully, what they were using. Although Im passionate about bass fishing, I also fish for bluegills, specks and occasionally catfish, so theres no telling what I may write about in this column. I even do a little saltwater fly-fishing o n the flats, which often results in a fish or two. Youll notice the column is in Fridays paper and not Sundays. The reason is simBack in local waters See FISH, Page 3B By PAULNEWBERRY Associated PressKurt Busch is the Charlie Sheen of NASCAR. Both have made a wreck of their careers. The latest outrage from Busch got him barred from the trip to Pocono this weekend, giving him plenty of time to cut his grass, or clean out the garage, or fix that broken faucet. But the most worthwhile project on his to-do list should be figuring out how to stay on the track once he gets back on it. In case you missed it which wouldve been hard, since the whole thing was captured on video NASCARs mercurial former champion had another of his all-too-familiar meltdowns, this time when asked a relatively benign question by a respected motorsports reporter whos been around the garage for years. Busch answered with a none-too-subtle threat, and the governing body responded with what passes for a harsh penalty by its usually lenient standards. Hey, Kurt, why dont you sit this one out, came the word from NASCAR headquarters. In fact, we insist on it. Actions detrimental to stock car racing ... violation of probation ... verbal abuse to a media member Well, that about covers it. At least give NASCAR credit for doling out a onerace suspension, since they are usually the kings of vague probationary periods that dont amount to much of anything. But, since Busch already was on probation for behavior even more bizarre, the stock car suits shouldve leveled an even harsher sanction. Ahalf-dozen races wouldve been more appropriate, giving Busch a good chunk of the summer to consider what a jerk hes been, time and time again. Busch responded with a pseudo-apology through a public relations firm, but it may not be enough to save a job that was supposed to be nothing more than a fallback position to begin with. Not even halfway through their first season together, Phoenix Racing owner James Finch has just about had enough of the 2004 Cup champion and, really, no one can blame the boss. According to Finch, Buschs fiery impatience on the track has already caused him to wreck 14 cars this season, three of them beyond repair. For a low-budget team like Phoenix, thats inexcusable. But its his behavior beyond the actual racing that is the biggest concern. Busch, for all his talent, has simply become too much of a loose cannon for anyone to put up with. He cant seem to get out of his own way. Heres the deal: Quit wrecking the cars, get a good finish, be nice to people, Finch told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio on Tuesday. Thats not real hard to do. For Busch, it apparently is. Once the suspension is done, Finch said hell let Busch hang around on a raceby-race basis. But this partnership feels like its sucking on its last breath, which leaves one of the sports most talented drivers facing the very real possibility that hell soon be without a job, right when he should be in the prime of his career. Busch is just 33 years old, with a resume that already includes 24 wins, 15 poles and 170 top-10 finishes. But his act seems a lot older. Hopefully if we can get Kurts mind right, we can win some races, Finch said. If we cant get his mind right so we can race into the future, then Ill go do something else. Its just that simple. Whether this is the wakeup call that Busch finally heeds is anyones guess. Kurt Busch needs more than a weekend off MCTphoto Kurt Busch seems to be at a potential crossroads in his career.

C M Y K Associated PressTAMPA Former Tampa Bay offensive lineman Paul Gruber is the newest inductee into the BuccaneersRing of Honor. The fourth overall pick in the 1988 draft played his entire 12-year pro career with the Bucs. He never missed a regular season game because of injury and played 4,850 consecutive snaps during one stretch from his rookie year until 1992. Gruber is the fourth inductee, joining Hall of Famer Lee Roy Selmon, John McKay and Jimmie Giles. The soft-spoken left tackle was the most consistent player on a team that didnt post a winning record until 1997, when Tampa Bay earned its first playoff berth in 15 years.

Continued from 1B Fish column looks to hook into local scene Classified Ads 385-6155 NEWS-SUN But theres little reason to believe hes going to change his ways. He certainly didnt after breaking up with one of the biggest names in motorsports, Roger Penske, after last season. Busch called it a mutual decision, but it had all the makings of an owner dismissing a malcontent employee. T he Captain runs a tight ship, and that philosophy was constantly at odds with Buschs hair-trigger temper. Last season alone, he unleashed a rage-fueled rant on his team radio that drew widespread attention, sparred with two reporters in Richmond, and finally was caught on camera verbally abusing an ESPN r eporter during the season finale in Miami. NASCAR levied a $50,000 fine after the Miami video was posted on YouTube. P enske pulled the plug about a week later. B usch insisted he was ready to go because he needed to put the fun back into racing. Apparently it never occurred to Busch that none of the major teams would want someone with his baggage, no matter how good he is. He had to settle for a ride with Phoenix Racing, which simply doesnt have the money to run with the big boys. Busch figured hed bide his time for one season with Phoenix, then land one of the plum jobs opening up in 2013. W ell, its not much fun e ssentially going from the Yankees to the Royals, racing for a team that has little chance of winning each week. Through 13 races, he hast finished higher than ninth. Hes led only six laps. Hes mired at 26th in the standings, which has raised Buschs frustration level to n ew highs. Or lows, we should say. Last month, a flat tire caused Busch to wreck latei n the Sprint Cup race at Darlington. A fter going to the pits for repairs, he did a burnout through Ryan Newman box while crew members were over the wall ane xtremely reckless move that could have left someone seriously injured. Afterward, Busch ran into Newmans car on pit road and got into it with several o f the angry crewmen. T hat led Newman to speculate Busch has a chemical imbalance, which seems as good an explanation as any. NASCAR put him on probation, which was still in effect at the time of his verbal smackdown to a reporter after last Saturdays Nationwide race at Dover. Busch is supposedly seeing a sports psychologist to deal with his anger issues, but its clearly not working. He needs a thorough checkup to determine why he cant keep it together. Maybe thats what he c an do this weekend. Hes certainly got the time. Paul Newberry is a national writer for The Associated Press.

E leven succeeded in sweeping the K entucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont, and 19 came up short in the final leg. While were waiting to see how Triple Crown hopeful Ill Have Another fares in his bid Saturday, heres a look at some of those who just missed, and the alibis: ___ TIM TAM (1958 The Calumet Farm bay colt finished second to Cavan by 512lengths after running the final quarter-mile with a broken bone in his right front ankle. ___ CARRYBACK (1961 Ascrawny, unattractive little colt was poised to make another thrilling stretch run to victory, but when jockey Johnny Sellers asked for more, Carry Back spit the bit a racing term meaning he simply didnt feel like running anymore. He finished seventh behind 65-1 long shot Sherluck. ___ MAJESTIC PRINCE (1969 The great jockey Bill Hartack was criticized by many for moving too late in the stretch in losing to Arts and Letters. It was Majestic Princes first loss in 10 starts. ___ SPECTACULAR BID (1979 Considered a cinch to give racing its fourth Triple Crown winner in the 1970s, the Bid stepped on a safety pin in his stall the morning of the race. He finished third behind Coastal after young jockey Ron Franklin gunned Bid to the lead and the colt faded in the stretch. ___ SILVER CHARM (1997 After reeling in rival Free House with an eighth of a mile to go, Silver Charm was on his way to immortality. But with 75 yards to go, jockey Gary Stevens saw another horse out of the corner o f his eye. It was Touch Gold, and Silver Charm didn t see him either until 10 jumps from the wire. By then, it was too late. ___ REALQUIET(1998 Ayear after trainer Bob Baffert had his heart broken by Silver Charm, another of his horses Real Quiet took a run at greatness. But jockey Kent Desormeaux was criticized for making his move too early, and byt he time Real Quiet was a furlong from the finish at Belmont, he began staggering home. Victory Gallop, runner-up in the Derby and Preakness, was bearing down and the two hit the wire together. After several agonizing minutes, the photo went against Real Quiet. ___ CHARISMATIC (1999 T rainer D. Wayne LukasTriple Crown quest ended with a quarter mile to go, when Charismatic fractured two bones in his left front leg but still finished third behind 29-1 long shot Lemon Drop Kid. ___ WAR EMBLEM (2002 Baffert has had some tough luck chasing the Triple Crown and his front-running speedster was done in early he stumbled out of the starting gate and finished eighth behind 70-1 long shot Sarava. ___ SMARTYJONES (2004 After fighting off strong challenges from Rock Hard Ten and Eddington along the backstretch, Smarty Jones and jockey Stewart Elliott opened a 312-length lead into the stretch. But the early duels proved to be Smartys undoing. He tired in the stretch and was caught in the final 70 yards by 36-1 long shot Birdstone.

Florida Trail Association Heartland Chapter, June Activities dering if I was willing to sign, he said. Heard from them a couple more times, but was never notified that I was being drafted. That was, until I heard my name over the computer in the 14th round, he continued. I almost hit my head on the ceiling. Aphone call from Durkin was received, saying the team would be in touch over the next few days to get t hings finalized, though a new collective bargaining agreement came into play during this years draft, which made things a little more complicated. Following is an explanation offered early this week by writer Paul White in USA TODAY. The biggest change is the bonus pool, an updated version of the unofficial slotting (suggested bonus money based on draft position) that MLB tried to get clubs to adhere to in the past with mixed results. Aflaw in that system was that lower-revenue teams often passed on top talents because of the cost of signing them, allowing richer and more successful teams to add to their collection of talent. N ow, each teams pool for the first 10 rounds is based on a complicated system that takes into account draft posit ion, number of picks and money spent the previous y ear. Bonuses under $100,000 after round 10 dont count against the pool. This years pools range from $12.3 million for the Minnesota Twins13 picks to $1.6 million for the Los Angeles Angelseight selections. T eams can exceed the pool, but with penalties: A75-percent luxury tax on the excess amount for going 5-percent or less over the limit; a 100percent tax and loss of next years first-round pick for 510-percent over; ranging up to a loss of two No. 1 picks for more than 15-percent over. Adding to the decisionmaking pressure is a July 13 signing deadline moved up from Aug. 15 for players taken this week. Which might explain why it turned out to be more a matter of hours, rather than days, before Durkin knocked on the Hoffners door Wednesday evening. I decided to sign, Hoffner said. I felt that the money was right, especiallyb ecause money for school was included in the offer. Even though college is a step up in the process, I am looki ng forward to what is next. Having my family here w ith me was a huge blessing, he continued. And without my dad teaching me all he has over the years, Iw ould never be where I am today Today its at home in Sebring, flush with the k nowledge his baseball future is set and fast a pproaching. Im being flown out to Arizona Sunday morning, he said. To say Im excitedi s an understatement. s a dream come true t hat I have been working for my whole life. The dream fulfilled, and yet only beginning. Continued from 1B News-Sun photo courtesy of KIM GAUGER In his freshman season at St. Petersburg College, Cobrin H offner had a 2.52 ERA and recorded 73 strikeouts in 71 innings. Hoffner sees dream come true o say Im excited is an understatement.CORBINHOFFNER would knock off the Eagles again two days later to reach the championship game before falling, 4-3, to St. Thomas. For his standout season, Weber-Callahan was named to the Sun Conference first team in just his freshman c ampaign. But the twist to the story is that he and the Bees already k new it would be SCADs last campaign. e found out that the baseball, softball and volleyball programs were being cut one week before our first series back in January Weber-Callahan said. Everyone was pretty upset, but we still wanted to do our best in the last SCAD baseball season. Knowing it could be my first and last season of playing college baseball, it definitely set a fire and made me want to do my best on the field. The results of that fire being lit speak for themselves and also offered Weber-Callahan the chance for his college baseball career to continue, with other schools taking notice of his ability and making offers but at a cost. SCAD, after all, was the school of choice for the aspiring architect and when given the choice between an athletic or academic scholarship, he opted for the latter with the knowledge that he was still going to get his opportunity with the baseball team. Agood choice in hindsight, but one that also showed the direction he saw for himself. Though, that was before this newfound success on the diamond and the opportunities it opened up. I do have a couple of scholarship offers from different schools at the NAIA level, Weber-Callahan said. But I would have to major in something other than architecture if I were to go to any of those schools. Thats why Im having such a hard time deciding, because of the options I have right now And while his summer break is just getting underway, what lies ahead is some emotional wrestling with what his future holds. Im going to have to give up playing baseball to stay at SCAD, he said. Or keep playing and put off the degree Ive been working toward. I still havent made my final decision. Continued from 1B Choice weighing on Weber-Callahan C ourtesy photo D ylan Weber-Callahan has a lot to consider this summer. Associated PressORLANDO Even though they are two of the most famous athletes to come from Jacksonville, Tim Tebow and Chipper Jones have never met. That might change soon. The New York Jets quarterback and the Atlanta Braves third baseman are p artnering to open a D1 Sports Training facility in Orlando. It will house an indoor turf field and a state-of-theart weight room to go with a sports medicine and therapy clinic run by Orlando Orthopaedic Center, which also is an owner. I havent met Tim. I hope to in the very near future, Jones said before Wednesdays game at Miami. Hes probably the most recognizable figure in America right now. Were from the same area in Jacksonville. I know he comes from a good family. His faith is as strong as anybody youll ever meet. And I dont even know him, you know? So thats my impression of him froma far. That being said, Im a long-time loyal Gator, and he can do no wrong in my eyes. Tebow trained at D1 Nashville prior to the 2010 NFLdraft. He became a co-owner of D1 Savannah in April 2011 and joined Jones as a coowner in D1 Tampa in January. s one of those business opportunities that comes along, Jones said. D1 in Tampa has done really well. Other D1s around the southeastern United States have done well. Its a chance for young kids to get some constructive exercise from professional athletes. They could get some tips from Tebow, too. Tebow is scheduled to hold a members-only training event June 24 at the new facility, which will officially open the next day. D1 has 15 other locations. D1 has partnered with star athletes such as Peyton Manning, Ndamukong Suh, Philip Rivers, Herschel Walker and Heather Mitts, along with physicians, to open facilities that work out and provide physicalt herapy to people of all abilities 7 or older to train as if theyre preparing to be Division-I athletes.

After shaking a few pills out of the bottle,you happen to glance at the expiration date stamped on the side andr ealize those pain-relief pills have expired. You wonder if you will get sick if you swallow them or if you can get away with itt his time. Who isnt trying to stretch a dollar a little further these d ays? And with prescription drug costs rising and some companies cutting back onh ealth insurance coverage, there are thousands of peop le who may be between plans and cannot afford to continually restock theirm edicine cabinets with new drugs. I s it safe to take that antianxiety medication even if its expiration date has come and gone? Will those acid reducers make you evenm ore sick? These are viable questions. F or the most part,medical experts say that expired drugs are reasonably safe tot ake. According to information published in P harmacology Today,the expiration date stamped on over-the-counter medication i s a date at which the drug manufacturer can still guarantee full potency of the drug. The expiration date on your prescription medicine bottle may be the date that the prescription not the medicine expires,gener-a lly a year after the medication was filled. A law was passed in 1979 that required drug manufacturers to issue the expiration date as am eans to giving consumers what they paid for,and likely to avoid litigation over drugs that are no longer effective. M edical authorities state that the majority of expired drugs are safe to take e ven medications that expired years ago. However, their potency may ber educed. Liquid medications,such a s oral antibiotics,may lose their potency faster than pills. Tetracycline,abroad-s pectrum antibiotic,is one that causes some controversy r egarding safety after expiration. So its best to discard tetracycline pills once they have expired. Others say thatn itroglycerine and hydrocodone (Vicodin) may p resent some dangers after expiration,but this has not been proven in any large-s cale study. If you need some more r eassurance that those expired pills are fine to take, consider a study conducted b y the US Food and Drug Administration at the request of the US military. The military was consideri ng disposing of and replacing its drug store every few years because of expiration dates,which would have c ome at a considerable cost. After a lengthy analysis,the FDA determined that 90 percent of the more than 100 drugs they tested both prescription and OTC were still potent even 15 years after the expirationd ate. That doesnt mean it is always safe or effective to take an expired pill,especially if you are self-diag-n osing a medical condition and subsequently self-medicating. Medications should always be used under the guidance of a doctor whoc an monitor dosing and progress. Also,medications should never be shareda mong different members of the family for whom they were not prescribed. I ndividuals who stockpile medications also run the risk o f some other dangers. Theres the chance of grabbing the wrong bottle andt aking a medication that is not needed,a problem comm on with the elderly that can result in illness. With narcotic and prescription drug abuse a rising epidemic among young peo-p le,having a cabinet full of drugs could prove tempting t o adolescents thinking about getting high from drugs readily available int heir own homes. The best advice regarding e xpired drugs is when in doubt,throw them out. But if youve just swallowed s ome expired ibuprofen and are worried about side effects,chances are there is nothing to worry about. My pills are expired. Now what?

Kids often take their elders at their word. But some of these warnings bear more trutht han others. Heres the scoop on some of the more common misconceptions. Myth:Swallowed chewi ng gum stays in the stomach for seven years. W hile chewing gum cannot be digested and ism eant to be chewed and not swallowed,accidentally swallowing a piece here and there wont cause major issues. Thatsb ecause the gum will simply pass through the digestive system whole and come out with stool. If a large amount of gum iss wallowed in a short period of time,then there could be issues,including constipation and intestinal blockage in children. Myth:If you keep your eyes crossed too long,they will get stuck that way. The muscles in the eye are just like any muscles elsewhere in the body. Although they may tire and get sore,they are relativelyr esilient and can take a lot of wear and tear. Crossing y our eyes may tax these muscles,but you wont doa ny permanent harm. Rest assured that crossing the eyes will not leave them stuck that way. M yth:Covering your head is most important because you lose 75 percent of your body heat through it. T his calculation is more for an infant whose head makes up a greater percentage of his or her body. In an adult,the figure is closer to 10 percent. Heat can escape from any exposed area of the body.Therefore, it is helpful to bundle up all areas of the body when spending time outdoors in the cold weather. M yth:Going outside w ith wet hair will make you sick. Although you will feel colder stepping outside with a part of your body wet,it wont make you more susceptible to catch-i ng a cold. Researchers at t he Common Cold R esearch Unit in England o nce tested a group of volunteers who were given the cold virus. One half of the group stayed in a warm room,while the others tooka bath and stood wet in a h allway for a half hour. The wet group didnt catch more colds than the dry. Myth:Dont swim right after eating. The basis of this mantra is that when digesting food, t he digestive system pulls b lood away from the muscles and the idea is that youc ould cramp up and drown. While you may have less energy to swim vigorously, chances are you wont be so weak as to drown. Although many health myths prevail,knowing the truth can help parents educate their children better about which behaviors are safe and which are risky. Dear Pharmacist: I saw your Facebook post on iodine and have hypothy-r oidism. Im convinced Im deficient,tell me more about deficiency and how to feel better? E.P.,Scottsdale,Ariz. Answer: Iodine is so important and you may runl ow if you swim in chlorinated swimming pools, drink certain beverages orb rush your teeth with typical toothpaste. I odine is one of the components that helps make thyroid hormone. It startso ut as thyroxine or T4 for short. The refers to the n umber of iodine molecules bound on to the T, which stands for tyrosine. Thyroid hormone is just iodine and tyrosine gluedt ogether. At some point, one of the iodine molecules l eave,and youre left with T3 which is your bodys fuel. T3 wakes you up andb urns fat,it makes you pretty. Doctors cant agree o n what the best range is. I think youll feel well if your T3 is between 3.5 4 .2. The thyroid gland is the only part of the body that has cells capable of absorbing iodine,which it getsf rom food,iodized salt, seaweed but it doesnt get nearly enough. I was shocked when I learned that the American ThyroidA ssociation reported that approximately 40 percent o f the worlds population remains at risk for iodined eficiency. I think part of the problem is that foods grown in mineral-deficient soils are less nutritious. Bring in chemicals calledh alides such as fluorine, chlorine and bromine.These halides are annoying bullies and race for the same spot on thec ell that iodine does,the bullies win. Who are the bullies? For example,a very popular sports electrolyte drink contains bromine,your pool and jacuzzi contain chlorine and most toothpastes contain fluoride. Its not any one punch,its the cumulative effect. You know how you love that new car smell? Some of it is off-gassing of bromine, a nd youre breathing it in. Your thyroid gets upset. These bully halides are drug muggers of youri odine,they could cause d eficiency. This increases y our risk for becoming h ypothyroid:Hair loss, d epression,always feeling cold,weight gain,brittle fingernails,constipation, p ale,dry skin. Did I ment ion fatigue? Oh yeah,its constant and you wake up only after that triple shot latte. Iodine deficiency is not a lways the only cause for h ypothyroidism. Your doc tor can test you so dont take iodine indiscriminately because it can cause h yperthyroidism and nodules. If you read my 24H our Pharmacist book, youd know that I only rec o mmend supplements that contain both iodineand iodidebecause different tissues of the body respon d b etter to certain forms of Iodine. The thyroid gland l oves iodide while the breasts and prostate crave i odine. Thats why I recom mend either I-throid caps ules,or Iodoral tablets (however,those tablets contain pharmaceutical glaze in case you are sens itive). Health food stores can order either of thesef or you,or buy online. I dont like liquid iodine supplements,they usually taste unpleasant and Im never sure of consistency from drop to drop.

Wake up with healthy thyroid hormone HEALTHYLIVING Dear Pharmacist S uzy Cohen In the month of May,DrugF ree Highlands supported the Teen PregnancyP revention Alliance by helpingp ut on their annual eighth-grade Teen Panels.A s the month of May ended, all of the eighth-grade girls a nd boys in Highlands County were educated about sex,STDs,teen pregnancy,d rugs and personal hygiene. Every year it is an eye o pener for our eighthgraders,but also for the people putting it on,for the volunteers and for the teachers that participate. The statisticsa re disturbing. And our eighth-graders are shocked to f ind out that there are 2,400 teenagers in the United States every year that become preg-n ant; that in Highlands County,every week,three t eenagers become pregnant; that many of those pregnant young girls have an STD of s ome kind; and that a teen is 10 times more likely to experiment with sex if they are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. A s the school year comes to an end our teens are starving for freedom,for no homework days,for sleeping in late and,of course,in thish eat,bathing suit days. Summer is their favorite time o f year and,of course,for good reason. So,whethery our sons or daughters are going to summer camp,staying home or attending summer school,as parents and grandparents,we need tok eep our eyes open at the things our kids are doing this summer as well as in the future. A few things to do to l essen the likelihood of your teen having sex and abusing drugs: Talk to your teens about sex and drugs; Know what there doing on the computer,on their phones etc.,(set parental controls); Do not host parties at home so your kids can drink/abuse drugs safely; Know who your teen is hanging out with; check in with them frequently; and Urge your teen to become involved in sports and extracurricular activities. Unfortunately,quite often we hear people complain that there is nothing for teens to do in our county,but what people need to understand is that there are many things for children and teens to do. Between church,summer camps,the YMCA and all of the other organizations that provide events during the week and weekend,there are many options for teens to become involved in positive activities.

Popular health myths debunked When it comes to these things, Mom may not always be right Classified ads get results! Call 314-9876 Associated PressNEW YORK There wont be any more candy,sugary cereal or fast food on TV with the morning cartoons. The Walt Disney Co. on Tuesday became the first major media company to ban ads for junk food on its television channels,radio stations and websites,hoping to stop kids from eating badly by taking the temptation away. First Lady Michelle Obama called it a game changerthat is sure to send a message to the rest of the childrens entertainment industry. Just a few years ago if you had told me or any other mom or dad in America that our kids wouldt see a single ad for junk food while they watched their favorite cartoons on a major TV network,we wouldnt have believed you,said Obama,who heads a campaign to curb child obesity. The food that doesnt meet Disnes nutritional standards goes beyond candy bars and fast-food meals. Capri Sun juice (too much sugar Oscar Mayer Lunchables (high sodiumont be advertised. Any cereal with 10 grams or more of sugar per serving is also off the air.A full meal cant be more than 600 calories. Disnes rules which wont take effect until 2015 follow a proposal by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to take supersized drinks over 16 ounces out of convenience stores,movie theaters and restaurants,removing choices to try to influence behavior. Getting rid of junk food ads will make it easier to keep the family on a healthy diet,said Nadine Haskell,a mother of two sons,8 and 11. If they see a commercial on TV,then the next time we go to the grocery store thell see it and say they want to try it,said Haskell,of Columbus,Ohio. Disney declined to say how much revenue it stands to lose from banning unhealthy food. CEO Bob Iger said there might be a short-term reduction in advertising revenue,but he hopes that advertisers will eventually adjust and create products that meet the standards. The ban would apply to TV channels such as Disney XD,childrens programming in the Saturday-morning block aired on Disney-owned ABC stations,Radio Disney and Disney-owned websites aimed at families with young children. Disneys new diet for kids: No more junk food ads

Then he boldly proclaimed,Nor is there salvation in any other name,for there is noo ther name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved(Acts 4:8-12 The boldness of the Messiah was imprinted on their souls,I am thew ay,the truth,and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me(John 14:6l owing vital information about Jesus,the Savior!JehovaWhen Isaiah told of the coming o f John (Isaiah 40:3he was to prepare the way of Jehovah. When J ohn started his mission,the apostle Matthew (3:3ied,this preparer as the one spoken of by Isaiah with this statement,or this is he who was spoken of by thep rophet Isaiah,saying:The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord; make His paths straight.Lordis both o f these passages also translates Jehovahi.e. the existing one; the eternal living one.EternalSince we are surrounded with t hings related to time,it is very difficult to comprehend the eternal Word but that is the very thing John 1:1 proclaims,In the beginning was the Word,and the Word was with God,and the Word was God.And this is an inspired commentary on Genesis 1:1 and the word Elohim. This marvelousc haracter of Jesus is expounded upon by Spirit inspired writers like P aul in Colossians 1:15-17 and John in Revelation 1:8,I am the Alpha and the Omega,the Beginning and the End,says the Lord,who is and who was and who i s to come,the Almighty.SinlessThere was only one who would dare ask such a question as, Which of you convicts Me of sin?(John 8:46They desperately tried to charge Him with sin and set him up to sin,but For we do not have a High Priest who cannots ympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are,yet without sin(Hebrews 4:15). This attribute of Jesus is a must for Him to be a perfect sino ffering. The Hebrew letter continues in 7:26,27,or such a High Priest was fitting for us,who ish oly,harmless,undefiled,separate from sinners,and has become higher than the heavens; who does notn eed daily,as those high priests,to offer up sacrifices,first for His o wn sins and then for the peoples, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.UniversalAbraham was promised that his seed would bring forth a blessingt o all the families of the earth. (Genesis 12:3The Divinely inspired prophets for many generations added more information to this promised Messiah/Savior. Galatians 3:16 and 29 brings it allt ogether,Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say,And to seeds,as of many,but as of one,And to your seed,who is Christand And ify ou are Christs,then you are Abrahams seed,and heirs according to the promise.This universalism of the gospel was clearly stated in the world wide orders to take them essage of Jesus/Savior to every creature. (Mark 16:15,16S ufficientThe multitude of animal sacrif ices were unable to take away sin as is clearly stated in Hebrews 10:1-4. Early is his ministry,Johnd eclared about Jesus,Behold!

C M Y K B y DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie WriterBen StillersAlex the lion reviews Madagascar 3: Europes Most Wantedso we dont have to. Halfway into the third animated tale about New York City zoo animals on their overseas adventures,Alex tells some new circus friends that their act was not too entertaining for families because you were just going through the motions out there. So,too,for Madagascar 3,which goes through a lot of motions explosions of action and image so riotously paced that they become narcotic and numbing. With Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath,creators of the first two Madagascar flicks,joined by a third director in Conrad Vernon (Shrek 2the filmmakers just cant stop stuffing things,to the point of distraction,into Europes Most Wanted. The result:a cute story about zoo animals running off to join the circus becomes overwhelmed by a blur of color and animated acrobatics. The pictures certainly are pretty,but the filmmakers apparently are unwilling to risk the slightest lapse of audience attention,so they put the movie on fast-forward and let centripetal force hurtle viewers along from start to finish. Madagascar 3opens with Alex and zoo pals Marty the zebra (Chris Rock),Gloria the hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Melman the giraffe (David Schwimmer) still stuck in Africa,dreaming of their return to New York. Along with lemur king Julien (Sacha Baron Cohen and his flunky (Cedric the Entertainer),they follow Skipper (voiced by co-director McGrath) and his wily penguin cohorts to the casinos of Monte Carlo,hoping to hitch a ride home. The journey from Africa to Europe just happens,with no explanation,begging the question,how much harder would it be for the gang to find its way back to New York on its own? But thats the sort of thinking for which the filmmakers aim to leave no time. The critters raise a ruckus at the casino,setting vile French animal-control officer Chantel DuBois (Frances McDormand) on their tail. T he animals may be as cuddly as ever,but the design of Chantel is creepy in an offputting way; shes like an early take on Dalmatiansheavy Cruella De Vil,discarded by Walt Disney out of sheer repugnance. On the run from Chantel, the animals take refuge aboard a circus train,where they team up with Vitaly the tiger (Bryan CranstonGia the jaguar (Jessica Chastain and Stefano the sea lion (Martin Short The circus may prove the gangs ticket home,but only if they can turn the act into a dazzler. From this point on, Madagascar 3mostly is a cartoon kaleidoscope,filled with blinding pyrotechnics a nd impossible gymnastics that Cirque du Soleil could only dream about. The animation is grand, and the lovely images may be enough to send really young kids away happy. Their parents might leave feeling theve been taken in by some carny sleight-ofhand,though. By CHRISTY LEMIRE A P Movie CriticNothing could possibly satisfy the fervent expecta-t ion that has built for Ridley Scotts sorta-prequel to his genre-defining Alien,but Prometheus,the directors return to science fiction fort he first time in 30 years, comes close. Strikingly beautiful, expertly paced,vividly detailed and scary as hell,it holds you in its grip for itse ntirety and doesnt let go. Youll squeal,youll squirm at one point,I was curled up in a little ball in my seat in a packed screening room and youll probably continue feeling a lingering s ense of anxiety afterward. Thats how effective it is in creating and sustaining an intensely suspenseful mood. But the further you get a way from outer-space journey,the more you may begin t o notice some problems with the plot both specific,nagging holes and a gen-e ral narrative fuzziness. Describing some of them w ould give too much away, and we wouldnt dream of doing that. W ll just say that Scott and writers Damon Lindelof (executive producer of Lost) and Jon Spaihts vaguely touch on the notions o f belief vs. science and creation vs. Darwinism,philosophical debates that never feel fully developed. Still,the performances are e xcellent,especially from Michael Fassbender as a robot with the looks and impeccable manners of an adult but the innocence and troublemaking instincts of a child. His character,the gen-t eel,fair-haired David, serves as an homage to S cotts own work as he calls to mind Ian Holms android Ash from the original Alien.His eerily calm, precise demeanor also is reminiscent of the HAL 9000 computer program in :A Space Odyssey,a nd the pop-culture influences that shape Davids h abits and speech are a clever celebration of the power of classic cinema ing eneral. (Prometheus probably will not go on to be c onsidered one of Scotts classics in the same category as Alienand BladeR unner,but youve got to admire its ambition.) David is part of a crew of s pace explorers traveling to a remote moon on a trilliond ollar mission in the year 2093,hoping to find answers to nothing less than the origin of mankind on Earth. (Dont they know theys hould have been looking in central Texas? Thats where Terrence Malick searched in The Tree of Life.) Noomi Rapace,star of the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoofilms,con-t inues to forge a strong screen presence as Dr. E lizabeth Shaw,a scientist who has managed to find a balance between her religious faith and her workrelated discoveries. She and her boyfriend,the more spiritually skeptical CharlieH olloway (Logan MarshallGreen),have found signs in spots around the globe that aliens visited tens of thousands of years ago and left us an invitation to swing by and say howdy whenever weh ad a chance. Thats what they think,at l east. The rest of the crew includes Charlize Theron, radiating icy intimidation as the administrator from the private corporation funding the trip,and Idris Elba as the ships sexy,smart-aleckyc aptain. Everyone else is probably a goner. If youve e ver seen this kind of movie, you know this is not a spoiler. W hen they all finally awaken from their two-year s leep and arrive at this gorgeously severe land,they (naturallys ecrets and perils they never could have imagined. Some of them are gooey.Thats a bout all well say about that because you really s hould experience it all for yourself. But the paranoia becomes palpable,and a lot of its impact comes from how dra-m atic and dazzlingly seamless the special effects are. Scott makes crisp,immersive use of 3-D in Prometheus,providing encounters that would seem too close for comfort any-w ay with a nerve-wracking sense of claustrophobia. T he reason for the journey may seem a bit muddled,but what happens once they get there is undeniably powerful. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, June 8, 2012Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; movie listings; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 4 4 4 4 2 2 DIVERSIONS Dear Abby: My husband, Chris,wanted a motorcy-c le for seven years. Last year I finally gave in,with the stipulation that he take a safety course and buy a good helmet and riding gear. T wo months later,Chris was in a crash and suffered several broken bones and a concussion. The hospital bill was more than $60,000. His accident was a reality checkf or me. Ever since,I have been petrified of losing him. E very time Chris rides I worry,pray and often cry until he returns or calls tos ay hes OK. I have begged him to get r id of the bike. The stress is taking a toll on me physically and emotionally and creating tension between us. Im afraid it would be selfish toi nsist he get rid of something he loves; on the other hand,I f eel Chris is selfish for not taking my feelings into consideration. Im torn betweenw anting him safe and wanting him to be happy.What s hould I do? Stressed Out in Philly Dear Stressed Out: If his c lose call wasnt enough to convince your husband to rethink his motorcycle ridi ng,and your begging and obvious distress havent diss uaded him,accept that short of hog-tying Chris,you cant stop him from riding. You can,however,protect yourself from some of thef allout that might result from another accident. Tell Chris that if his heart is set on riding,you want him to buy a life insurance policy and sign an organ donor card, because healthy young meno n motorcycles are the most desired organ donors a f act shared with me by a former executive director of an organ donation registry.That way you will be provided for in case of a tragedy and itw ill ensure that part of him lives on when he is removed from life support. Its also important that you find ways to lessen yours tress. So start making time for activities you can enjoy while youre on your own. Itll give you less time to worry and something else on which to concentrate. Dear Abby: I am a woman who last year discovered I was gay. I was married with children. When I told my husband I was gay, he embraced and supportedm e with a great deal of love. We told our children in an o pen and honest way,and they,too,have supported me. I have also told a select g roup of friends whom I felt I could trust. O ne of these friends is the mother of one of my sons classmates. Her daughter asked her mom why I was always with a woman andh er response was,s her girlfriend.Her daughter a sked more questions,so her mother told her I was gay outing me to her daughtera nd my sons classmates! I am beyond hurt,and I am c onsidering dissolving my friendship with this person. I am unsure what I should sayo r do. Can you help? Confused in Seattle Dear Confused: Once a secretis shared,there is no guarantee that it will remain a secret. When you began coming out to your friends, you revealed who you are. You CANT be both in and out of the closet. P lease forgive your friend. Her daughter asked honest questions and was given honest answers. That is a good thing. There are worse things than being known as gay in Seattle such asb eing gay in a place thats less accepting. So start celeb rating who you are and the rest will fall into place.
