The school was still segregated. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Sebring in the 1950s is difficult to write about today. There is a huge gap in the Sebring Historical Societys newspaper record. There are no editions until December of 1957. In Sebring, 1950 opened in sorrow with the death of Orville Sebring, the co-founder of the town. By December of 1957, there was a new newspaper in the city, the sixpage Highlands County News. Still in the large format, the News dealt almost exclusively with Sebring and Highlands County news. Most of the photos were of individual faces, or groups standing together. Fisherman a nd their catches often appeared on the front page, as did photos of wrecked cars. As 1957 ended, a new city council was being seated. Mayor J.D. Hunt had not been opposed for reelection, Ben Eastman was serving as council president, and Jack Stroup was elected city clerk for the first time. Aburst of activity occurs in 1958, beginning with a proposal to four lane U .S. 27, then State Road 25. Six million dollars were needed to fund the project, but work didnt begin right away. The highway upgrade was only one of several projects funded or begun in 1958. County Road 621 connected Lorida with Lake Placid, and a road was built from the Highlands-Hardee county lines to State Road 700 in DeSoto City. It was at this time State Road 64 was extended from Avon Park to the Bombing Range. In response to the nuclear age, Sebring was chosen as the site of the 1950s: Division under the surface Courtesy photo Sebring cofounder Orville Sebring died in January of 1950. See 1950s, page 4A

C M Y K As Amy Looney dove into cold, choppy English C hannel waters in the dark of night, the faces of three people filled her thoughts during a grueling, hour-long July 14 swim. The firsti mage she saw was her husband, LTSEALBrendan Looney, who was killed in Afghanistan on Sept. 21, 2010. A my met Brendan, a stoic, driven varsity athlete a t the United States Naval Academy, on Memorial Dayw eekend in 2003. The future Navy SEALwas so nervous that friends had to coax him into talking to the pretty girl by the bar. He was the shyest person Id ever met, Amy said. But by the end of the night, he asked for my number Brendan had just become a SEALwhen he married Amy on July 12, 2008, just 48 hours before a combat deployment to Iraq. While memorable, the Annapolis, Md., ceremony also had a backdrop of profound sadness due to a groomsmans absence. Brendans Naval Academy roommate, Marine 1st. Lt. Travis Manion, had been killed in Iraq just 14 months earlier. Amys thoughts shifted to Travis as the 50-degree water felt like a straight jacket around her arms, which were trying to navigate the Channel. I thought about Brendan a lot, but I thought about T ravis too, Amy said. I know theyre probably upt here laughing. Brendan and Travis became close friends while learning how to become leaders after 9/11. It was int he Navy where both Midshipmen showed early signs of the everlasting brotherhood that makes the military Americas mostr evered institution. One night when we went out, someone bumped into me so hard that I almost fell over, Amy said. Travis went over to the guy and was like you need to apologize ... you dont bump into my friends girlfriend. It showed how quickly Travis was there to back Brendan up, she continued. Brendan would have done the exact same thing for him. TravisApr. 29, 2007, death at the hands of an enemy sniper in Fallujah, Iraq, devastated Brendan, who was about to start Navy SEALtraining. But Travis mom, Janet Manion, encoura ged him to soldier on. Think about what Travis would want, the grieving mother told Brendan. On his wedding night, B rendan, who graduated as Honor Man of his BUD/S class, presented his SEAL Trident to Janet. I need you to have this, B rendan said. I wouldnt have gotten through it witho ut Travis. With the sky even darker a nd seasickness filling her stomach, Amy saw Janets face. She also thought of Brendans parents, Kevin and Maureen Looney, andh er husbands five siblings. Their courage motivated Amy to keep swimming.

The grant is part of Lets Play, a community partnership led by Dr. Pepper Snapple Group to get kids andf amilies active nationwide. e are thankful for this grant and hope that our community will assist i n the matching part of the grant. We live in such a wonderful community filled with folks who try to be good neighbors. Ahuge part of our mission is to help families with children and Ic ant think of a better way to help our local kids than to provide a safe place for them to play and dream of the future, said Habitat Board President Rev. Ronald DeGenaro. H ighlands County Habitat for Humanity has been awarded these funds to build a large outdoor playg round for the children living at Masons Ridge. The playground will be built by Habitat staff and local community volunteers and will be located adjacent to the neighbor-h oods community center. Aminimum of $9,000 in matching funds is required to start the project and it must be completed by July 10, 2013. The playground will benefit approxi-m ately 120 children. Contributions to the project can be made by sending a donation to H ighlands County Habitat for Humanity. Call 385-7156 for details. e are confident that we will raise the necessary matching funds as weve already received some interestf rom local organizations and local families who believe in the importance of outdoor play for our kids said Sarah Pallone, director of development for Habitat.

Local Habitat awarded $15,000 Lets Play grant Special to the News-SunFORTMYERS Samira K Beckwith, president and CEO of Fort Myers-based H ope HealthCare Services, announced Monday that it will conclude offering hospice care in Highlands, Hardee and Polk counties.T he not-for-profit hospice is confident that community n eeds once filled by their organization are now met by fellow not-for-profit hos-p ice, Good Shepherd Hospice. Our mission is to provide quality care wherever it is needed. When we beganH ope Hospice in midFlorida, we met the needs of individuals and families in a reas where services werent available, B eckwith said. When Good Shepherd Hospice announced plans to expand their services, we saw that patients have access to thec are they need and our services had become duplicative. Hopes mission is fulfilled. Beckwith said the transition of about 150 patients and families should be com-p lete within the coming month. H ope staff members will receive employee assistance during the transition and will have an opportunity to interview for positions withG ood Shepherd Hospice which, under its agreement with Hope, will hire many of Hopes employees to ensure ongoing continuityo f care for Hopes patients. Both of our hospice organizations believe thatt he not-for-profit hospice care model is best for the c ommunity. By choosing not to duplicate services, we will ensure that cost-effective and comprehensive end-of-life care will contin-u e throughout mid-Florida, said Kathy Fernandez, presi dent and CEO of Chapters Health System. Debbie Harley, executive d irector of Cornerstone Hospice, stated that C ornerstone Hospice was unaware of the changes that were being made betweenH ope and Good Shepherd. I have to say, Im a little upset as I sit here thinking t hat one good hospice, Shepherd, is the be-all enda ll of hospice care, Harley said. As for the future of the employees and patients at the hospices that will bec losing its doors, Harley has not heard what the other hospices plans aree. e work on just as much as a commitment as other hospices. We stand just as ready as Hope to takeo n patients and families. We are still a viable option for p eople facing life-ending illnesses as any other hospice in the area. We are willing and able to take on any patients and personnelt hat Hope loses. Our door is open, we are happy to take them on. We are a small hospice but we take pride in our commitment to care,H arley said. Hope HealthCare to halt hospice care in Highlands See WIDOW, page 6A

C M Y K They are posted online within seven days of receipt, although the goal is to make them available within 24 hours. Eventually,other agen-c ies in the executive branch will be included. P roject Sunburst was a welcome response to the missteps Scott and his staff made whenh e took office in January 2011. Then,several emails m ade during the transition were deleted a violation of open-records laws. Alas,it turns out that the state wasnt getting sunshinef rom Project Sunburst,but rather shadows. A fter the Tampa Bay Times/Miami Heralds Tallahassee bureau questionedw hat it called an unrealistically high percentage of f avorable emails on the public database,Scotts office acknowledged that two email accounts existed,and that the office had been posting correspondence from just one t he one used almost exclusively by the governors politi cal supporters. According to the Times/Herald,that emaila ddress rls@eog.myflorida.com was not on the offic ial state website,but does appear on many tea party websites across the state, under the heading Governor Rick Scotts email. T hus,instead of being able to read online the official e xecutive branch correspondence,Floridians were treated to such stimulating emails as Please stand strong,e Support you!and Dont s top fighting!!! Verified Voter Rolls:Amen! T hats not transparency,its treacle. It also proved to be misleading. Although emails from the governors official account have always beena vailable via a public records request,according to the Times/Herald,reporters acting at the urging of Scott have relied on the Sunburst database for official emails,t hinking they were all included. Several reporters have u sed those emails to gauge public sentiment on several issues. I nstead,they were getting partisan PR spin. ... S cott trumpeted the launch of Project Sunburst as an unprecedented open and transparent windointo how state government works,andh elped fulfill his campaign promise to make government m ore accountable to the people.

Rick Scott when he announced he was creating Project Sunburst,which was supposed to make public all the governors emails and those of his top staff. It has been suggested that Robinsons departure presents the opportunity to reassess Floridas heavy reliance on the FCAT as a measure of student progress and school accountability. But thats more a legislative matter than a bureaucratic one. That said,in replacing Robinson we urge the Florida Board of Education to look for someone who is more collaborator than combatant. Robinsons topdown approach to education reform drove an unnecessary wedge between the DOE and the school districts. He is leaving a department that recently admitted to botching the latest round of school gradings,which would seem to add weight to school superintendentsearlier call for an independent review of the DOEs testing regimes. People in Tallahassee have manipulated the FCAT standards both up and down so many times over the last couple of years that its hard to know what the results mean any more,Dan Boyd, Alachua Countys school superintendent,wrote in a Speaking Out published in The Sun last May. Last February,the Florida Association of District School Superintendents sent Robinson a lengthy letter detailing its objections to the DOEs ever changing grading and accountability standards and suggesting numerous alternative approaches. It provided a starting point for a cooperative effort that was largely ignored. Ending the cold war between the DOE and the school districts ought to be high on the next education secretarys list of things to. Collaboration,not confrontation,is key to solving the accountability puzzle. An editorial from The Gainesville Sun. Next education secretary needs to be more of a collaborator, not combatant Florida Education Commissioner Gerard Robinson is headed for the exit. Whatever else he may have accomplished,Robinsons combative leadership style made him a lightning rod; seemingly forever at odds with the states school superintendents and school boards.

Now,he is said to be o n the ascent since presumptive Republican Presidential nominee MittR omney seems stalled. Some pundits suggest r ecent polls and Electoral College projections indicate Obama is destined to beat Romney. One teeny-weenie bit of a dvice:dont count Romney out yet. F irst,forget Fox News pundit Dick Morrisclaim that the media is trying toc reate a sense of momentum and of inevitability a bout the Obama candidacy.Morris writes that he has seen state-by-state polls o f a firm he has known and respected for years,and they show Romney well positioned in key states. Fair enough about secret p olls. But as anyone in the news media,or who has worked for it and Im sure Morris himself knows,its utter bilge that the mediais trying to createa sense of moment um and inevitability. Theres no big media con-s piracy with editors and reporters trying to create an image to elect Obama. News outlets and reporters compete with one another.I f you believe the Morris assertion,then let me tell you about a nice,furry bunny thatll hop into your house on Easter and hidec andied eggs. A recent daily tracking poll by Rasmussen a favorite firm of GOPers put Obama with a slight lead over Romney,47 to 45 percent. So is Rasmussen part of this mediathat is trying to create a sense of momentum and inevitability or do we just exclude the ones that dont fit into institutional defining? Actually,theres speculation Rasmussen is the firm Morris is talking about. Lockstep partisanship is lucrative and affirms a partisan choirs existing political biases,but its better to listen to clinical analysts who dont have partisan axes to grind,such as the University of Virginias highly accurate Larry Sabato. Sabato repeatedly stresses that this race is a question mark,will go down to the wire and hinges on the economy and how its perceived. Heres one of his tweets:or Nov. 6, Romnes British blunders are less important than 1.5 percent GDP growth. Here are a just a few reasons why pundits falling into the trap of joining in on the moments fashionable narrative may wish to hold back on implying Romney is toast: Obamas 2008 Coalition Erosion:Yes,Obama has a higher likability rating,but hes leaking 2008 supporters. Gallup wrote this about a new poll:Eighty-six percent of voters who say they voted for Barack Obama in 2008 are backing Obama again this year,a smaller proportion than the 92 perc ent of 2008 John McCain voters who are supporting 2 012 Republican candidate Mitt Romney. Nine percent of 2008 Obama voters have s witched to supporting Romney this year,while 5 percent of McCain voters have switched to Obama. Republicans Unify A round Romney:So much for primary predictions that the GOP wouldnt get behind Romney.The desire to get Obama out trumps( excuse the expression) all. The GOPs coalition is b ack in place. Dont Underestimate R omney in Debates:In some primary debates he ruthlessly focused in message,content and attack. Big Bucks:Once again, T eam Romney trounced Team Obama in monthly fundraising. NBCs First Read wonders whether a sea of negative advertisingw ill hit a saturation point,but Romnes campaign war chest will negate some traditional incumbency advantages. Republican Media and Social Media Cohesiveness: Douglas Brinkles excellent new book on Walter Cronkite reminds us of when conservatives felt frozen out in broadcasting and unable to get their message out. Talk radio, Fox News and social media narrowcast messages and help keep partisans thinking rightin line. Historys Poetry:History often creates ironies or neat narratives. Will Americas first African-American President turn out to be a one-termer who voters booted out and deemed a failure? Or will he turn out to be returned to office to serve two terms,confirmation that his first term was, in personal terms at least, acceptable? Will the rhythm of recent history continue the trend giving GOPers control of the White House the bulk of the time? Conventional Wisdom is Ephemeral:Its really pack punditry,which is OK except voters dont always follow it. Joe Gandelman is a veteran journalist.

C M Y K control center for the civil defense Southeastern Command. Special equipment was sent in by the fed-e ral government, including litters, cover-alls, blankets and gloves. At the local Kwik Check, sugar was 39 cents for a fivep ound bag, bacon was 49 cents a pound, and lean ground beef was selling for 45 cents a pound. January 1, 1959 the News p rinted a front story by Ray Caldwell reporting that the winning of the Ridge Grid Title was the highlight of 1958. All the Blue Streak teams, basketball, footballa nd baseball had winning seasons, he wrote, and the g ridders put their school on the map with the first Ridge Conference Championship in2 1 years. There were two controvers ial municipal issues in 1958 and 1959. One was the proposed sale of the Sebring power plant and a transfer to the FloridaP ower Company. The controversy came f rom the power company bypassing the Sebring Utilities Commission andm aking its $2.25 million bid to the city council. C ritics of the sale also argued that the utility made a profit and should not be soldi n the first place. In any case, they said, the utility commission by charter had the polic y-making power and as such had sole control over the utili ty. Proponents responded that as city assets, the power plant belonged to the people and as such should be undert he control of the council. On March 5, 1959, the issue came down to a city council vote. The members voted 3 to 2 in favor of the utilities commission. On April 30, The H ighlands News reported a state bill providing for a r elief and pension protection for firefighters. The issue went to a referendum. Voters approved the new fund, to which the city would con-t ribute a tax not to exceed three tenths of a mil. Aboard of trustees, made up of the mayor, the fire chief and three firefighters,w as selected to oversee the new fund. In June, the Florida Power Company tried again to get the city to sell its electric utility, but the commission a gain refused. It began an expansion program of its own. In its response to the power company, the Newsq uoted the utility commission telling the company, We will n ot be interested in any proposition from Florida Power Company except fort he sale of power at wholesale rates. I n July, a small historic moment occurred when three Cuban helicopters made af uel stop at the Sebring airport during the small window of coexistence. They were a p art of the Cuban Revolutionary Government u nderFidel Castro. In August of 1959, work was well underway on C.R. 621 on the east and south of Lake Istokpoga. Fifty-fivep arcels had been bought for the SR 25/US 27 widening project. The parcels cost a total of $270,649. Gone were three service stations, a restaurant, a fruit s tand, a novelty shop, an ice house and the Walker Memorial Sanitarium, plus a several churches. Efforts to create a commun ity hospital in Sebring met with obstacles and resistance, w ith increased taxes being the major concern. Aspecial public hearing to g auge resident opinion was held on Oct. 1. Only 92 peop le turned out. They voted 4031 against building a hospital. A ccording to the News, Ill gladly make a donation, but dont put your hands in m y pocket and take money from me,said a bespectacled gentleman. In November, a hospital tax levy was killed during ac ity council meeting in a 2-2 vote. Growth during this time shows up in additions to several schools and the buildingo f Fred Wild Elementary School. The total number of students was 4,319. Schools, however, were still segregat-e d. It shows in the student count listed as 631 white high school students and 517 Negro high school students and in other ways. For example, on Jan. 8, 1 959, the newspaper ran a item announcing, Aworks hop for white teachers during the 1959-60 school year was approved. I n October of 1959, a white man and a black w oman in Venus were arrested on charges of cohabiting. She was also charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. P assing into the 1960s Sebring was no closer to d eciding what to do about building a hospital and who should provide city electrici-t y. As the News wrote in front p age editorial One thing is certain ... (the city difficult problems to solve,b ecause of the citys rapid growth and the increased demands for services. T he first few hours in stroke rehab involve being evaluated. Since you spend a lot oft ime in bed, the facility has to look at your butt. No lie. They have to check for bed sores, tom ake sure you are healthy and they have to make sure they are properly treating every ailment. S o grin and bear it, crack a smile and be prepared to reveal your bum. I later learned it was the insurance mafias, butt division for rehab centers, thatr equired the checks. They have whole divisions devote d to booty patrol. Just like falling in the hospital, the insurance mafias are seriousa bout cabooses. The first nurse who took a look was real apologetic, and complementary, which helps, but she still asked to see it. During the admitting, the nurse was real cool. Shee ven laughed when I replied Not since it was made illeg al to her question about smoking. We laughed and joked, but she still said, Mr. Baldridge, I am sorry, but it is policy Theres a little redness, she said. Near the top. Then she left for vacation.S he was riding a motorcycle from Florida to Sturgis, the yearly biker rally in S outh Dakota. Heh, her rear was going to be more sore t hen mine after that ride. I had already laid in bed for most of five days and, face it, everyone sweats. Before the stroke, I almostn ever sweated. Now I always felt like I was in a sauna with a heater under a beaver fur coat complete with raccoon hat. We are poor; I couldnt afford mink. S he wasnt the first to see my full moon. I learned in h igh school how to properly and timely moon people. I even minored in college asa lunar exhibitionist, but I gave it up when our firstc hild arrived and cell phones with cameras were invented. I didnt want one of the children browsing YouTube and discoveringD ad had a life and a few drinks BC (before children The next morning someone new arrived, said Mr. Baldridge and asked to see my buttocks. It was hard to roll over with the paralyzed arm and leg, but it was nice to be on my side instead of my back, so I made the effort and released the Kraken for her. She made some notes then thanked and left. Hmm. OK. I could understand a second opinion. Im not Brad Pitt, but I do havea muscular butt, however. She didnt explain or comment at all. About an hour later, two women arrived to view, and discuss, my posterior. Mr. Baldridge, if you would please show your rear someone in a slick business dress with a black leatherlooking binder asked. What do you think? the sharp dressed administrator asked. Does look a little red in this area, the other replied. Probably just a little bit of heat rash. I would recommend a topical, she said. Heat rash? Seriously? I am relatively positive it was heat rash. No one has literally drowned in sweat, but I was so done my belly button had popped like a Butterball turkey timer. DidI mention that the thermostat was broken in my room? I am not making this up. It was stuck on 75 degrees and would not budge. Edgar, my first roommate, was snug inside h is three blankets, but I was basting like one of those rotisserie chickens at Walmart. Ofc ourse it was heat rash. The administrator agreed to ask the doctor inc harge about the topical and they left without so much as how do you do. The next hiney attack c ame late that night. I had finished a cold washcloth bath. I wasnt allowed to shower yet by insurance mafia decree, and had hauled my sorry butt intob ed under a gifted fan when another person entered and s tarted with Mr. Baldridge, before she said she had a topical cream andw ould like to see my bottom. G eez. What was that, like five, six? I was getting frustrated by now. They say that is a side effect of the stroke, but really? Thism any times? She helped me to roll over and exposed my b um to the fan, which really felt kind of good. I dont see a problem, s he said. While she was taking a t hird look at her paperwork, I explained how my wife had rubbed a little aloe on ita nd it already felt better. ell, the doctor prescribed a topical cream, s he said. Thats nice, I tried to r eply.With my slur, I think it must have came out like Pffflpt tice because she just stared at me with a quizzical look on her face. A nd then she did something that I never would have expected in a million years. Let me take a picture of that. No kidding. Before I could flop over on my back,s he snapped a digital picture of my tooshie for the i nsurance mafia and fled the room. I was astounded. I was flabbergasted. It seems like I had just f inished ranting about it all and had went to sleep mad when I heard another knock on the door. Despite the six hours of sleep, I was stilli rritated so by the time there was a second knock and the familiar Mr. Baldridge I decided I would make a defiant stand.I would make a statement for bedridden patients everywhere. I would show them, I thought as I pulled my shorts down showing my rear. I was mad at having to expose myself so many times. Where was the dignity? I was put-off so I made a split decision to put it out there. I was showing my tail and proud to do it. Uh, housekeeping? she said. Ooops. I had just mooned the housekeeper. She didnt bat an eye, but I could see the small smirk on her face as she began emptying trash. I just lay there, trying to process the embarrassment while humility washed over me. I didnt know what to say. I wanted to apologize but finally figured that the best way to handle it was to roll back and be pleasant by not saying a word. Ed Baldridge is a News-Sun staff writer.

Elementary school vacancies are a r esult of a number of things, according to Waldron and recruitment manager Meribeth Colicci. Alot of the elementary teachers move up to positions at middle and high s chools, said Colicci. Most of our retirees this year were from the elementary level, so that also plays a role in the vacancies, said Waldron. D uring the orientations, break-out section veteran instructors Brian Buck R app and wife Allison Rapp (both Sebring High School instructors) spoke to a group of teachers about dealing with the different aspects of high s chool.

We have people from all over Florida, Louisiana, Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania. This group is very diversea nd recruitment this year was challenging because our department has been cut s o much. Its hard to do this job with the few people we have working in my d epartment, Waldron said. According to Waldron, district office cuts have had a huge impact on thee veryday function of the departments. The HRRPD was cut down to nine employees (including Waldron) from 14 in the past two years.

Currently single with two g rown children, Johnson said he began his career in the Navy as a carrier pilot who flew 200 missions off of three ships. He enjoys flyingt o this day. He also ran a Naval Training Center. Then he went into private business. Johnson moved to Sebring from Osceola in 2011. H e is in negotiations to open a new business in the industrial complex out by the airport. The discussions are still under way, he said and preferred not to say more, although he did say he expected to create jobs. Johnson said he has always loved Central Florida and sees it as an area of great potential. He pointed to the Sebring airport. Its exceptionally well located, well run, with a decent length of runway. It is cargo compatible. In fact, Johnson said, the entire county was ideally located, with a decent infrastructure. I see an opportunity, he said. There is a workforce, road access, a willing government. You can go in any direction port to port. Im excited about the inland ports being discussed for Okeechobee and St. Lucie. Highlands County has more to offer than business potential, Johnson said. It has the natural beauty to draw employees. It is stunningly beautiful, he said, the lakes and the wildlife. Regarding the present e conomy Johnson has concerns. People are barely making it. Theyve lost 40 percent of their assets and are living on a fraction of the money they had, he said, adding that taxes are a burden, ... a heavy boot on the neck of the families. I want to shrink this government to get out of the recession, he said. I believe in Ronald Reagans trickle down and supply side. He feels government should get of the way of the entrepreneurs, so he is opposed to government regulation. He is also proud of his conservative credentials. He has a 100 percent rating from the Florida Family Planning Council and the Christian Conservative voting guide. For example he supports expanding laws requiring waiting periods for divorce for couples with children, except in cases of domestic abuse, supports requiring a science teacher to provide a critical analysis of the theory of evolution and opposes gay marriage. The first thing (Ill do in Tallahassee) is completely review every statute and ordinance from state to city and get rid of those things that inhibit business, Johnson said. We have to make Florida the business capital of America. Continued from page 1A who arent waving flags or d rawing attention to themselves, but carefully get the business of the state done, Pigman said. Plus, this is a rural district. Anything ande verything I can do to make agriculture flourish in the 55th district is important to me. Pigman has a few main g oals if elected into office. One of the main issues is Medicaid. The medical home concept is an idea that Pigman fully supports and has alreadyb egun work on as a physician. I want to continue to work with (Medicaid make it a better system.M ake it one thats driven more by the outcomes. So m uch that we do in medicine currently is based on once the complications come fixing the heart attack when the heart attack happens, goingo n dialysis for kidney failure. Id like to move Medicaid t oward the medical come concept, Pigman said. The medical home concept p rovides a team approach for patients and people with c omplex illnesses. Agriculture is Pigmans second biggie as hed escribes it. One consideration for a country is food independe nce, thats strategic. We want to be food independent. L ets switch over to a regional perspective. The bottom line is if the 55th district was to lose cattle or dairy or citrus, not only would thosei ndustries collapse but all the businesses that support those industries would collapse. This area would turn into a scrub land with very littlep roperty value, tax revenues would collapse and the community itself would collapse. So while there are other industries and businesses int he area, we cant let that industry fail. We must do everything we can to support that business because it supports everything else in this area, Pigman said. P igman wants to work on job creation in the state three w ays. First, creating a regulatory environment (one that provides regulation but doesn ot strangle businesses), also a fair tax scheme for busin esses and an efficient use of allocations for education and Medicaid. Pigman agrees with Tallahassees term limits forr epresentatives and feels, as a professional in the communit y, that his election would be a contribution to the community If Im so blessed to be elected and so competent to b e re-elected, after your eight years is up you come back to your town and resume yourp rofession. For me that provides the right incentive. It really motivates you to do r ight for your district, because, by golly, thats w here youre going back to, Pigman said.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLike all dynasties the t hree centuries of the Ming, the Oakland As of the s a nd the Chicago Bulls of the 90s eventually they come to an end. Such was the case Wednesday night, as the Sebring Dixie dynasty was subdued by Sumter County, SC. Having won two straight Dixie Ozone World Series, this group sought to continue the run at the Junior Boys level, and reached the title game though with some ground to make up. They made up some of the ground with a rousing 19-9 win in Wednesdays early game, but fell 10-7 in the finale to clinch it for Carolina. The two teams had faced one another early Tuesday, in perhaps the most riveting game of the tournament, a 9inning, 3-2 South Carolina win. Sebring bounced back with a 16-3 thrashing of Team Tennessee to get them to the championship round, but having to stop Sumter County twice. In the opener, Team Florida, who head coach Dean Frazier had said wasnt hitting consistently as normal, sure kicked it into gear, scoring six in the top of the first. Seth Cannady started the opening rally with a walk of South Carolina starter Ryan Touchberry, before Jimmy Peck stepped to the plate. Mondays hero, with a record setting three home run game and nine RBI in a Sebring win, Peck reinjured a balky back in his at bat and was forced out of the game. Luis Lugo, however, pressed into emergency duty, came through with a single to left before a balk moved both runners into scoring position. Josh Crouch followed with a rocket through the Sumter third baseman to bring two runs in. Daniel Simons then drew a walk and one out later, Jay Bible blooped on into short left to load the bases. David DeGenaro singled one home and with two outs, Brendan Doty brought in two with a single to left. Cannady then was plunked by a pitch and during Lugos at bat, a wild pitch brought DeGenaro in for the 6-0 lead. lot of teams might have used that as an excuse to kind of throw in the towel, losing such a big player like that, head coach Dean Frazier said. But with these guys, they used it as a reason to fight. With them, its about the team. They all have their roles and if someone goes down, others step up and find a way Simons took the mound for the Florida squad and was greeted with a Dawson Price double before walking McLendon Sears. Jordan Holladay flew out to center, with Price moving to third, and Ron York lined one over second base to tally one run before Simons got out of it. Sebring then quickly added to the lead when Crouch walked and Simons helped his own cause with a two-run homer. Kyle Helms then singled to left and Bible to right, which prompted Hampton Rowe to come on in relief. DeGenaro grounded into a fielders choice, but a balk brought Helms in and later, after Doty drew a walk, a double steal was attempted. Doty was nabbed, but not before DeGenaro crossed home plate for a 10-1 lead. Team SC got one back in the bottom of the second, with Josh Whitley singling up the middle and moving to third when Rowes bunt attempt resulted in an throwing error to put Rowe on first. Daquan Ingram then singled Whitley in before Simons retired the next three hitters with no further damage. Sebring then added two more to the lead, with Crouch singling Cannady home and later coming in on an error fora 12-2 lead. But Carolina kept coming, with York singling through the left side to start the bottom of the third. Touchberry doubled to left center and Drew Talley walked to load the bases. Simons got the next two batters on strikes, but Ingram came through again with a single to score two. Price followed with an infield single to score another and Ingram soon came in on a wild pitch to cut the lead to 12-6 before Simons ended it with another strike out. Doty manufactured a run in the top of the fourth, as he singled to left, stole second, raced to third on a wild pitch and slid across the plate safely when the next pitch got away as well. Helms came on in relief, as Simons reached his pitch count, and was helped out by two fine defensive plays. First, after Helms struck out the lead-off batter, Doty made a leaping snare of a York liner. Later, Talley shot one into the gap in left-center, but Crouch made the long run in time to take it out of the air to retire the side. Sebring then looked to put this one away in the fifth. Crouch lead off with a home run over the centerfield fence, before Simons and Helms shot back-to-back In the 1960s, long before bass boats, electric motors, depth finders, GPSs and bass tournaments, the largemouth bass was still being pursued by fishing enthusiasts, but in a much simpler fashion. My father owned two boats, a small 12-foot jon boat that we kept staked at a small Ohio lake and a 16 Sea Nymph with a 25 hp Johnson motor. Both were equipped with state of the art oars. Growing up, we fished f requently out of both boats, often fishing with three in the boat one guy in the front, one in the back and o ne in the middle who was responsible to be the navigator and row the boat. Our strategy was pretty simple; whoever was on the oars continued to row the boat until someone caught a bass. Usually it didnt take long before one of the guys caught one, and regardless of t he size of the fish, he took over rowing the boat. It was a pretty simple method and we not only learned how to cast and catch bass, but we became excellent oars-men. We caught a lot of bass in those days, often a mixed bag of largemouth, smallmouth and an occasional walleye. Plastic worms hadnt been invented yet, nor had graphite rods and high speed reels. But we still caught plenty of fish on most every outing using what now seems pretty a ntiquated equipment. I was probably around 16years old when Crme Lures introduced their version of a p lastic worm. It was 6-8 inches long, with a propeller in front, rigged on a harness with two or three weedless hooks. Im sure many of you remember. One of my best memories w as a trip I made to Mogodore Reservoir, a small, natural body of water just east of Akron, Ohio. Launching the small 12foot jon boat, I was pretty excited to try out this new worm and before Id rowed 50 yards, I made my first cast to a small pocket of lily pads in about 5 feet of water. Mogodore was known for its gin-clear water, and as I stood to cast the worm harness, and began my retrieve I could see bass underwater moving towards my bait from every direction.

B y TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressLONDON Dwyane Wades recovery from knee surgery is right on schedule, and the All-Star guard expects to be ready to go when the Miami Heat open thed efense of their NBAchampionship. T he way he was walking around London o n Wednesday, it would have been tough to guess he had surgery a month ago. I feel good. Rehab is going very well, Wade told The Associated Press. Im happy with it. Im more e ncouraged than I was, obviously, when I knew I had to get surgery. So Im happy Wade was in London making a promotional appea rance at NBAHouse for Gatorade, one of his longtime sponsors, and its sports science institute. If the knee surgery wasnt needed, Wade would have been in London for another reason playing in the Olympics with the U.S. squad. He helped the team win a bronze at the 2004 Athens Games and gold at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He didnt hesitate when asked if he thought there was a chance his Heat teammate LeBron James and the rest of the U.S. men wouldnt win gold. No, Wade said. No. Simple as that. He had surgery on his left knee on July 9, after helping the Heat win the NBAchampionship despite his being bothered by knee pain and swelling throughout the playoffs. Once it was determined that he needed surgery, Wade removed his name from consideration for the Olympic team. Wade will spend a few days in London, planning to watch the U.S.-Japan womens soccer gold-medal match on Thursday, basketball and track and field, among other Olympic events. Then its off to Switzerland for meetings with a watch company that sponsors him and back home for the busiest part of his summer.

C M Y K landing, a feisty twopounder inhaled it and I was amazed as I reeled him in that other bass were following close behind. This new plastic worm was incredible! I must have caught 50 bass that day. None larger than three pounds, but this new-fangled worm was a fishermans dream come true. Later versions in every size and color would become my favorite go-to baits. Im not sure when I got my first tackle box, but I was probably 10 or 12 years old. I didnt have much in the way of fishing tackle mostly hand-me-downs from my dad, my grandfather or my uncle. But what I had were prized possessions. Prior to the Crme plastic worm, my favorite lures were Jitterbugs, Hula Poppers, Johnson Spoons and a Johnny ONeil Weedwing. Scratched and scarred from encounters with bass and walleyes, these lures continued to catch fish in spite of their condition. I had two fishing rods. Both were 6-foot fiberglass hand-me-downs graphite had not yet been introduced one spinning and one casting. Learning to use a Mitchell 300 spinning reel was pretty easy, but far more daunting was the challenge of mastering a Pflueger Akron, and later a Pflueger Supreme baitcasting reel. Countless hours of practicing in the backyard, combined with hours spent picking out backlashes, eventually resulted in a new-found skill and confidence fishing with a baitcasting reel. Ill never forget those early days in my fishing life. Fishing for bluegills on the beds with a fly rod, driftfishing with minnows for jumbo perch on Lake Erie and doodle-socking with minnows for crappies were all part of my life from the mid-1950s, through the 60s. There were no limits on the fish you could keep back in those days (or at least I dont remember limits), and no-one had ever heard of Ray Scott and his 1970s Catch and Release concept. We kept what we caught, and fish filets were a normal staple at the kitchen table. Cleaning fish was a family ritual. My father was a big fan of Henry Ford, so it didnt matter if we were mowing grass, raking leaves or cleaning fish everything was done on an assembly line. Some of us scaled fish while others filleted them out. The end result was a fresh pile of filets that would be that nights dinner or added to the freezer for a future meal. My wife thinks I have a lot of fishing tackle. I probably do have more than the average guy, but Ive been fishing for over 50 years. So I wiped the dust off three or four old tackle boxes, and selected a dozen of my favorite old lures. Determined to see if they could still catch fish, I madea trip to Lake Lotela in Avon Park armed only with my dirty dozen. My favorite old lure, a Johnny ONeil Weedwing was my first choice. Sliding a number 11 Uncle Josh pork chunk on the spoon, I sent it sailing into and across a small island of grass and reeds. Lifting my rod tip to get the bait on the surface, it was greeted with a huge strike and a hefty threepound bass. Right on the first cast! Acouple dozen casts, missed strikes and two small bass later, I was convinced my favorite old bass lure was just as good as it used to be. Next, I tried a Jitterbug, attempting the stop and go pattern my father tried to instill in me many years ago on Rice Lake. No takers. Thinking it was probably too early in the evening to expect much from a Jitterbug, I switched to a Johnson Spoon with an Uncle Josh yellow bass strip. Lake Lotela is a very clear body of water and as I retrieved the spoon just below the surface I remembered just how much fun it had been watching this lure cut through the lily pads on its way back to the boat. Next up was a Hula Popper, followed by a Crazy Crawler and then a Pikie Minnow. Over the next couple of hours I tried all 12 baits, getting more strikes than fish but proving to myself that the dirty dozen lures Id selected were just as good today as they were 40 and 50 years ago. Like me, theyre just a little aged. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

Follow Tim Reynolds on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/ByTimRey nolds Continued from 1B SpringLakeOn Tuesday, July 31, the SpringLake Mens Golf Association held a Two Man Team One Best Ball (net) competition (non-flighted, with balanced handicaps) on the Cougar Trail golf course. There was a tie for first place at 59 strokes between Joe Austin and Ed Clay and the team of Bill Lawens and Jack Hoerner. There was also a tie at 60 strokes for third place between Bob Hinde and Bryan Carlson and the team of Edd Vowels and Gene Hearn. F ifth place, at 62 strokes, went to Ken Kirby and Jay Payne. Wade keeping busy as knee heals singles through the left side. ABible ground out scored one run and DeGenaro put runners on first and third with a single to right. With two out, Doty drew a key walk to load the bases, which were quickly emptied when Cannady went yard for a grand slam. This put the lead at 19-6, with just three outs neededt o secure the mercy-rule win a nd force a second game. But South Carolina wast going to go down quite that easily. Whitley started the bottom of the fifth with an infield single and Drew Henkins hit a one-bagger i nto left. Ingram notched another RBI with a base-knock, before Helms got a fly out and strike out. But Holladay ripped a two-run triple to right to cut the lead to an even 10, at 199, with just one more run needed to force another inning. But Helms induced a York grounder to third and it waso n to the rubber match to decide it all. o lose a player like Jimmy, and then mercy-rulet hat good of a team, that shows you the character of t hese kids, Frazier said. And it shows the kind of p layers Sebring High School has coming to them over the n ext couple of years. And the nightcap started much the same as the first, with Sebring carrying that momentum over and jumping onto the board in their first at bat. Sears got the start for Sumter on the mound, and was greeted by a Cannady single to center. After Crouch flew out to center, Simons sent one out of reach for a two-run shota nd a 2-0 lead. It looked as if luck might be on the Florida side, too, as Price rocketed one backu p the middle to start the bottom of the first off of C annady. But the shot went off of C annady, literally, and was snagged by a diving Doty f or an out. But the luck quickly changed, as three straight singles and a double tied it at 2-2 and had runners on second and third. ATalley ground out scored another and a Whitely single to right made it 4-2. AThad James single up the middle spelled the end of Cannadys night, bringing Helms on again in relief. B efore even throwing a pitch, Helms then picked off James at first to retire the side. S ebring got the lead back in the second, with Cannady r ipping a two-run single and Crouch an RBI double. W ith two outs, Helms then singled home a run and i t was a 6-4 lead for the Florida squad. But the see-saw affair continued in the bottom of the inning, as South Carolina scored three to retake the lead. Frazier tied it with a double in the top of the third, but that would be the last of the scoring for Sebring on the night. The kids were fighting, but I think we just flat ran out of juice at the end, Frazier said. In the sixth, we had back-to-back strike o uts, and I think thats when it set in that the storybook ending wasnt going to happen. One run came across for Sumter in the third, another i n the fifth and one more in the sixth that would provide for the final margin and m ark the end of the Sebring reign. If you had told me at the start of all this that Id get five state titles with these kids, a third, two firsts and a second in the Dixie World Series, I dont know whatc oach wouldnt take that, Frazier said. With all they fought through this timea round, the adversity, sure there was some emotion afterward, but they stood up, congratulated the other team and showed a lot of character. Im as proud of what they did here as I was witha ny of the others, he continued. Ill take this and happily put it right up nextt o the championship trophies.

C M Y K D ear Pharmacist: What herb do you suggest for relieving stress? The side effects of alprazolam are intolerable. R.T.,Denver,Colorado Answer: Many herbs and nutrients can help,please use my search box at myw ebsite because I have many articles archived. Also,I wrote a full chapter,Frazzled,Frustrated and Freaked Outin my book, The 24-Hour Pharmacist. Today,Im excited to tell you about Magnoliae offici-n alis,a flowering plant used for eons in traditional Chinese and Japanese medi-c ine to control anxiety and promote better sleep. V arious parts of the plant can be applied topically, ingested orally,or taken as at ea to relieve digestion,cons tipation,toothaches,inflammation,depression, headache,and asthma. Youre going to love this next part. M agnolia bark extract has powerful stress busting effects,largely due to honokiola well-studied and potent anxiolytic. It workss imilarly to prescription medications like alprazolam (Xanaxchlordiazepoxide (Libriumdiazepam (Valium),and lorazepam( Ativan). Both magnolia and prescription sedatives work byi ncreasing levels of GABA, a relaxing hormone that helps calm and soothe ano veractive brain. The difference is that honokiol is p icky and works in specific areas of the brain (raising GABA). T he net effect is relaxation. Prescription drugs affect GABA receptorst hroughout your entire body, causing systemic side effects such morning hangovere ffect,muscle weakness, daytime fatigue and more. Magnolia,being more selec-t ive,should not produce these problems,and should n ot make you feel doped up. Magnolia helps manage stress eating so I suggest yout ake it while watching your f avorite reality show (wink. A couple of studies found that overweight women ate fewer calories while on magnolia,versus those who didn ot supplement. Its not an appetite suppressant,I suspect it just tames the compulsion to eat while under stress. M illions of Americans with generalized anxiety disorder,grief,depression and panic attacks may benefit from magnolia bark,so its ab right future. I love that magnolia bark offers a safe alternative forp eople concerned about addiction and excessive sedation from medications.T he biggest deal to me,as a pharmacist is that studies p ublished in the Journal of Pharmacology have shown that honokiol induces a spe-c ific stress-relieving effect a nd is less likely to cause motor dysfunctionas well as sedation as compared to medicine. d still tread carefully if y ou have to operate machinery or drive a car,until you are certain of magnolias effect on you. The best part is that withdrawal symptomsa re absent in people who discontinue magnolia bark. I recommend HonoPureby Econugenics,Magnolia Extractby eitherN utricology or Allergy Research Group. Even though multiple s tudies have confirmed the safety magnolia bark,I suggest you get your physiciansa pproval. Stop magnolia two w eeks prior to surgery,you dont want it in your blood stream while receiving anes t hesia. Alcohols sedative effect enhances magnolias effect so this combination should be avoided. And finally, magnolia is not recommend ed for pregnant ladies as certain forms may be harmful. Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

The results are surprising,given that t he childhood obesity rate didnt budge. How can that be? Some experts think t hat while most kids may not be eating less or exercising more,they may be getting fewer trans fats. Thats because the a rtery-clogging ingredient has been removed or reduced in many processed or fried foods such as doughnuts,cookies and french fries. Thats my leading theory,said Dr. S arah de Ferranti,director of preventive cardiology at Boston Childrens H ospital. She wrote an editorial that accompanies the study. The study did not look at the reasons f or the decline,but its lead author,Dr. Brian Kit of the Centers for Disease C ontrol and Prevention,said the theory makes sense. The research,released online Tuesday by the Journal of the A merican Medical Association,also showed that childrens average overall cholesterol levels declined slightly. Too much cholesterol in the blood raises the risk of heart disease. It isnt usuall y an immediate threat for most children, but those who have the problem often g row into adults with a high risk. Kit and his colleagues drew data from an intensive national study that inter-v iews people and does blood-cholesterol tests. They focused on more than 16,000 c hildren and adolescents over three periods 1988-94,1999-2002 and 2007-10. During the most recent period studied, t he number of children ages 6 through 19 with high cholesterol was 1 in 12. That was down from 1 in 9 in each of the earlier periods. Kids cholesterol down; fewer trans fats cited

C M Y K W e live in Florida and somewhere close,theres s ome water. You call up your friends; grab bathing suits and boards and head tot he beach. Forget something? No,the beer is in the cooler and friends are bringi ng the heavy stuff. The fire and sun are blazi ng. The air smells sweet with salt water,coconut tanning oil and sun block. Everyone is glistening while waiting for grilled goodsd uring this traditional all day event with food,music, fun and plenty to drink in the summer sun sounds like the perfect day. These are the things that good memories are made ofb ut right here in this perfect picture lays a deadly duo. W hat are they you ask? Why,its alcohol and the sun. Apart,these two have a huge reputation for inducing some of the most memorablee xperiences,both fun and not so fun. However,together they can be fatal. One huge risk of drinking a lcohol in the sun is heat stroke. If your body lacks fluids because of alcohol,it cant sweat to cool itself. When the humidity is high, which is a constant during a Florida summer,sweat will not evaporate as swiftly and prevents the body from releasing heat quickly. Symptoms of heat stroke include headache,dizziness, sluggishness,disorientation, confusion,loss of consciousness,hallucinations,seizure and other symptoms similar to those of dehydration. Alcohol lowers the bodys tolerance for heat and acts as a diuretic,meaning it causes the body to lose more fluid through urine,resulting in dehydration,said Alana Gold,a registered dietician and contributing writer for True Star Health. A dehydrated person is likely to feel the effects of alcohol more quickly and severely than someone who is properly hydrated. If one becomes intoxicate d,they may not notice the effects of the sun,which can lead to an experience of extreme sunburn. This is one of the effects of drinking in the sun because one may lose the capacity to makes ound decisions. During the summer people a re out and about,swimming,boating and fishing, all while consuming alcohol. The alcohol produces a breakdown of the centraln ervous system,which leads to poor judgment and recklessness. Statistics show that during the summer months,there is an increasei n car,boating and drowning accidents because of the mix of summer and alcohol. A state study concluded that Florida led the nation in boating crashes and fatalities last year. In 2011,the report said, there were 742 accidents and 67 fatalities. This is not what we want to think about when summer vacation arrives,but we have to be proactive. If you are going out in the sun and plan to have an alcoholic beverage,check your birth date and stop yourself if you are not yet 21,which is the legal drinking age. If you are of age then here are a few tips: Cover up:wear sun screen and/or light clothing. Hydrate yourself with plenty of water,at least three quarts a day in the summer If driving a car or boat, be safe and do not drink. If you are a passenger on a boat,remember that alcohol impairs your balance. Be careful not to go near the edges of the boat w here you could fall off and potentially drown. Always wear a life jacket. More than9 0 percent of drowning victims did not wear a life jacket,according to the L ifesaving Society. Do not swim if you h ave been drinking. Alcohol impairs breathing and swallowing reflexes. Avoid alcoholic sugary drinks as the sugar causesy ou to lose more body fluid. Drink responsibly. Have a designated driver. Just dont drink.

Diabetes now affects roughly 26 million Americans, with up to onet hird of cases remaining undiagnosed. Seventynine million more Americans havep re-diabetes and, without help,are at significant risk ford eveloping type II diabetes. Vascular and neurologic health areb oth affected by diabetes. Ocular complications r arely occur in isolation, rather,representing endorgan damage caused by as ystemic disease affecting all organ systems. In todays d ay and age,it has become easier to manage diabetes; however,it still deserves much respect,as it remains one of the leading causes ofb lindness in America to date. L ets review some basics: 90 percent of diabetics have the non-insulin dependentt ype of the disease (Type II),while the other 10 perc ent have the insulin dependent type (Type I). Type II diabetes is most o ften observed in grossly overweight adults (although we are starting to see it more and more in our younger populations) andu sually does not require insulin treatment. Type I diabetes usually occurs in people younger than 30,and does require regular insulini njections to live. Both types of diabetes c an affect a persons vision on many different levels,w ith the most common complication being retinopathy (bleeding within or leakage of fluid within the retinal tissue). The earli-e st signs of retinopathy are observed when structural changes take place in the capillaries,thereby preventing the flow of nutrientsi nto the retina. This lack of flow of nutrients and oxygen to the retina results in damage to the retinal tissue. Many diabetic patients have little to no visual signs or symptoms in the early stages of diabetic retinopathy,which is why its so important to have regular, dilated eye exams every year. Swelling of the optic nerve may occur in one or both eyes of a diabetic,and will usually manifest with mild visual loss. This condition does not necessarily correlate with the severity of any diabetic retinopathy, and can only be observed with a dilated eye exam. Diabetes can also affect the clear dome covering the front of the eye,also known as the cornea. Corneal swelling can reduce vision, sometimes dramatically,and decreased corneal sensation has also been noted in patients with this disease. The risk of cataract is two to four times greater in diabetics as compared to those without the disease,and in Type I diabetics the risk is 15 to 20 times greater. Cataracts also seem to grow at a faster rate in diabetics compared to those without diabetes. Results of cataract surgery are very good for patients who have no retinopathy; however,there seems to be a slightly higher risk of retinal tissue swelling after surgery in diabetics. Temporary paralysis of the isolated muscles around the eye may occur in diabetics,and is frequently the clue to a hidden diabetic condition. Often, the patient will complain of seeing doubleand asi rritating as that may be,a temporary solution (such as patching an eye) is sought since this c ondition usually resolves on its own in one to threem onths. Patients with diabetes are at an increasedr isk for open-angle glaucoma as well. Additional caut ion must be used in monitoring for side-effects if the patient is being treated witha beta-blocker.These medications can mask the warni ng signs of hypoglycemia (i.e. shaking,nightmares, sweating,etc.). A sudden change in visual acuity may also occur ind iabetics,causing blurred vision. In most cases,until a patients blood sugar has been stable for at least three months,glasses should notb e changed or prescribed. Diabetes also seems to be r elated to dry eye syndrome as well. All diabetic patients should be screened for evid ence of dry eye syndrome, and treated accordingly to reduce the symptoms of burning,foreign body sensation,and fluctuatingv ision. The first key in protecting your vision from the ravages of diabetes is in close monitoring of your bloods ugar. The Diabetes Control and Complications Trial ( DCCT) determined that control of a patients bloods ugar is critical in reducing the rate as well as progression of retinopathy. Diet and exercise are also essential components in main-t aining tight control of your blood sugar. Your endocrinologist or internist should be able to help you design a regimen that works the bestf or you. The second element in safeguarding your vision is to get annual dilated eye exams with your optometrist. As mentioned previously,early diabetic changes may not cause you any visual symptoms initially,but they still need to be closely monitored.If youre diabetic and havent seen your eye doctor within the last year,make an appointment today. Life is much more enjoyable when you know that youve taken charge of your health and your vision.

This may be an overstatement,but it does somewhat express what Pauls aw there:A city given over to idols (Acts 17:16As was Pauls track record,he reasoned with the Jews in the synagogue and others in them arketplace of the city. Eventually,the discussion moved to theA reopagus. There he told the audience his observation of the altar To The UnknownG odand stated,Therefore, the One whom you worship w ithout knowing,Him I proclaim to you.Observe carefully what is recorded by theH oly Spirit for our learning in Acts 17:24-31a masterp iece. It was the inspired genius of Paul that seized upon such a circumstance and made the inscription the text of his address. God,who made the world and everything in it. T he idols were made/shaped/molded by human hands. God Almightyi s the Creator,not created! In the beginning God create d the heavens and the earthGenesis 1:1. Before the mountains were brought f orth,or ever You had formed the earth and the world,even from everlasting to everlasting,You are God. Psalm 90:2. He is Lord of heaven and earth. There were idol gods for heaven,earth, water,etc. (Neptune,Jupiter) whereas Jehovah is one Godo ver all. He does not dwell in t emples made with hands. Visitors to Athens couldc learly see the many temples/buildings (Parthenon, etc.) used to house the idols. Pauls statement here fully agrees with Stephens wordsi n Acts 7:48 However,the Most High does not dwell in temples made with hands There was no such place there or any where on eartht o house God! His habitation is the church,body of Christ (Ephesians 2:19-22 He is not worshipped with mens hands as though He needed anything. The God of heaven was not made by mens hands nor cared forb y the same. Now recall the reputation of the city,or all the Athenians and the for-e igners who were there spend their time in nothing else but either to tell or toh ear some new thing(Acts 17:21). They were now h earing new things/truth they perhaps had never heard before! They were indeedg etting their wish,their hearts desire. He gives to all life, breath,and all things. He gives life to those who make lifeless idols and life to those who care for them.A lmighty God is not given life but rather is the giver of l ife! This was never said of any idol nor did the worshipers ascribe such power. He made from one blood every nation. There is n o such thing as racesbut rather one race the human race. And Adam called his w ifes name Eve,because she was the mother of all livingGenesis 3:20. All humans are equal before the eyes of the Creator. This wasa hard lesson for the snobbish Jews,Greeks and Romans to comprehend. Each thought they were superior to all others. Thec olor of skin does not affect the blood type! He has preappointed nations,times,and bound-a ries of their dwellings. First point of clarification is that Paul was introducing them to the Universal God, not just a national god.N ebuchadnezzar,king of Babylon,learned and then acknowledged that Jehovah, the Most High,rules in the kingdom of men,and gives itt o whomever He chooses (Daniel 4 They may seek God. T he result of the evidence is that God Almighty rulesn ations. This knowledge is to bring nations to Him andH is plan for mankind. Repeatedly in the record of Moses and Pharaoh,the phrase that he may know there is a God in heavenis used. The same purpose was also with Nebuchadnezzar, Cyrus and Darius. He is not far from each o ne of us. When an idol worshipper moved away from t he idol,there was distance. T he Jews even had a problem with this concept when they were in Babylon ase xpressed in Psalm 137. Yet, Psalm 139 gives assurance o f the nearness of God; i.e., o mnipresence. In Him we live,move and have our being. He is t he source of lifeCreator, n ot created! Therefore,no idol (dead,immobile,perishable,decaying) could represent Deity. Being the offspring of God,our Divine nature is not then gold,silv er,stone or something shaped by art or man. Knowledge brings responsibilityrepentance. Pauls sermon to the pagans in Lystra (Acts 14:16-18 deals with the same area ofi gnorance and then the evid ence provided that God is! N ow making them aware of the judgment is a manifestation of their Creators concern for their salvation (2P eter 3:9). The assurance of this salvation is evidenced b y the resurrection of Jesus! As in all opportunities to preach the gospel,there was/is a reaction/responsesome mocked and other wanted more information. A similars ituation occurred in Antioch (Acts 13:42-48aul took the opportunity to teach more information about the gospel of Christ. In both cases,precious souls were obedient to the gospel. Frank Parker can be reached at frankparker27@yahoo.com/ Great sermon series: Paul at Athens Guest Column Frank Parker GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE B y CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie CriticL OS ANGELES The word prolificgets tossed around a lot,but it couldnt be more appropriate in discussing the work of the late,g reat Marvin Hamlisch. This is especially true in considering his many contributions to film over the past five-plus decades. Y es,hes been duly decorated in other artistic realms the longtime Broadwayf avorite A Chorus Line, which eventually ended up on the big screen,earnedh im a Tony and a Pulitzer Prize in 1976 but he also c rafted some of the bestloved and most enduring songs and scores in movieh istory. Hamlisch died Monday a fter a brief illness,his family said. The former child prodigy,who was accepted to Juilliard School of Music at age 7,was 68. R egardless of the genre or year,Hamlischs music had a unifying factor something intangible,an oldfashioned sense of show-m anship,a feeling of substance and a respect for c raft. He tapped into our emotions in a way that felt intimate and personal,yet h e expressed yearnings that are universally relatable, One great example of this is The Way We Were,a soaring,unabashedly senti-m ental,achingly melancholy ballad from the 1973 Sydney Pollack romantic drama of the same name starring Barbra Streisanda nd Robert Redford. Nearly 40 years later,it still holds u p beautifully,and it gave Streisand one of her signature tunes. It also earned Hamlisch the Academy Award for besto riginal song,which he shared with lyricists Alan a nd Marilyn Bergman. (The couple said in a statement Tuesday:He was moret han our collaborator. He was our beloved friend. He w as family. 1974 was a huge year for Hamlisch at the Oscars:He a lso won for his original score for The Way We Wereand for his instantly recognizable adaptation of Scott Joplins music for The Sting,the seven-time Oscar winner that reunited Butch and Sundance,Paul Newman and Redford,as Chicago con men along withd irector George Roy Hill. The theme song The E ntertaineris so insanely catchy,itll probably be stuck in your head the rest of the week. Youre welcome. I n a reflection of his versatility,Hamlisch also comp osed the greatest James Bond theme song yet in the 22-film history of the fran-c hise (in my opinion at least you can have Goldfingeror Live and Let Die) with Nobody Does It Betterfrom 1977s The Spy Who Loved Me. Its romantic and wistful but with an increasing power,and like The Way WeWereis for Streisand,i s become a signature hit for Carly Simon. Its so enduring,though,even Radiohead has performed a cover of it,putting their owns pin on the song while remaining true to its e ssence. Hamlisch left his signature on decades worth of films MCT Marvin Hamlisch died Monday after a brief illness. He w as 68.

C M Y K By CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie CriticH eres how surprisingly effective Hope Springsis: I t will make you want to go home and have sex with your spouse afterward. Or at l east share a longer hug or a more passionate kiss. You dont have to be married for 31 years like the stuck-in-a-rut couple MerylS treep and Tommy Lee Jones play to feel inspired by the films message about the importance of keeping your relationship alive. Its ounds like a clich because it is a clich,and more:Its a cottage industry,one thats launched countless afternoont alk show episodes and shelf after shelf of self-help books. And yet,despite television ads that look alternatelyw acky and mawkish and suggest pat,glossy superficiality,Hope Springs unearths some quiet and often uncomfortable truths.T he first produced script from television writer and producer Vanessa Taylor (Alias,Game of Thrones) explores the complicated dynamics that develop over a long-term relationship with great honesty and little judgment. What looks like a standard rom-com turns into something akin to a contemporary Ingmar Bergman film. The performances from Streep and Jones go a long way toward elevating the rather straightforward direction from David Frankel, which includes some painfully literal musical selections and a few hokey comic situations. Frankel also directed Streep in her withering,Oscar-nominated performance in The Devil Wears Prada.But stylish magazine editor Miranda Priestly wouldnt be caught dead in the sensible ensembles that Streeps character here,Kay,wears and sells at a mall chain store for middle-aged women. Her wardrobe is one of many ways Hope Springsdepictsa safe,suburban Midwestern l ife vividly and without an ounce of mocking. Kay and her husband, Arnold,live in a comfortable home in Omaha,Neb.Theirc hildren have grown up and moved out,leaving them to settle into a drab routine. She cooks him bacon and a couple of fried eggs every morning,which he eats at the kitchen table while reading the newspaper. A quick kiss on the cheek and Arnold is off to work at an accounting firm where hes one of the partners. When he comes home at night,some sort of meat-and-potatoes dinner is waiting for him. Afterward, she cleans up while he dozes off in the recliner watching The Golf Channel. Then they head upstairs to go to sleep in their separate bedrooms. And its been this way for years. Tired of the sexless complacency,Kay insists one day that she and Arnold take part in an intense,one-week couplestherapy session. In Maine. Arnold grudgingly agrees to join her in the idyllic New England hamlet of Great Hope Springs,but once he sits down on thec ouch,it takes a while for him even to consider openi ng up to the soft-spoken but persistent Dr. Bernard Feld (Steve Carell,playing a s olid straight man to allow the two stars to stand out). The therapy scenes are just exquisitely acted and paced,with body languagea nd slight facial gestures that speak volumes. The silences provide tension and intimacy,but once these two do begin answering ques-t ions,they reveal regrets and resentments,yearnings and f antasies thed never dared to speak aloud before. A rnold is perpetually exasperated and emotionally closed-off but hes convinced himself hes content; Jones is doing his patented,h umorously gruff persona but with some eventual vulnerability that provides shading and depth. Hes great here. And Streep isj ust ... well,shes Meryl Streep. Lovely,slightly naive and goofy and always so accessible,she never hasa moment that feels forced or false. Kay longs to be loved so desperately,your heart just aches for her and yet,she also may bear much of the blame for the state of her marriage. Without a single special effect or explosion,Hope Springsis the unexpected summer movie with real punch. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, August 10, 2012Page 9B Fairmount Cinema; 1.736"; 6"; Black; -; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 3 3 6 6 0 0 DIVERSIONS D ear Abby: I am 38 and have been married to a good husband and provider for 11y ears. Wehave two beautiful children and a lovely home. Weappear to be the perfectc ouple. Our problem is,my husband seems to be intimidat-e d by my sexuality. In the past,I have told my husband what pleases me. Myc omments made him feel inadequate,and he has c ompletely given up. We havent had sex in two years. He says he wouldr ather pleasure himself so he doesnt have to worry t hat he isnt doing it right. I am a normal,redblooded woman,and I need sex several times a month.I s that so wrong? I have resorted to having an affair w ith a man whose wife isnt interested in sex,but I would prefer having a sexl ife with my husband. I think my husband k nows I am unfaithful.

We like the same things,and were so close that we finish each others sentences. Shes like a sister to me. However,the difference between us is that Alana gets crushes on boys that never work out,whereas multiple boys have liked me. After each crush falls through,Alana says her life is awful and it must be her fault. When I try to tell her its not her fault and shes a wonderful person,she ends t he conversation. It hurts me to see her upset,but sometimes I feel lost about what tod o. What can I do to help my friend know shes a beautiful person inside and out,and she d oesnt need a boy to be happy? I love her and just want her to be OK. Best Friends in Rancho Palos Verdes,Calif. Dear Best Friends: U ntil Alana learns for herself that she doesnt need a b oy to be happy,she will continue developing crushes that dont work out.B oys are attracted to girls who appear to be happy a nd confident,and your friend appears to be neither.

I t was the second Texas arrest this year for Travis, w ho was cited in February for public intoxication. A Pontiac Trans Am r egistered to Travis,53, had driven off a road west o f Tioga around midnight Tuesday,said Tom Vinger, spokesman for the Texas Department of Public Safety. T he vehicle had struck several barricades in a c onstruction zone, according to DPS. Vinger said Travis m ade threats against Texas Highway Patrol t roopers and was not wearing clothes at the time of his arrest. H e refused sobriety tests,Vinger said,so a blood specimen was taken. Travis was released on $ 21,500 bond Wednesday morning pending an appearance before a judge in Sherman,about 60 miles north of Dallas.B lood test results are pending. G rayson County Sheriffs Sgt. RickeyW heeler said Travis faces charges of retaliation or obstruction in addition to driving under the influence. Travis had a strong odor of alcoholic beverage on his breath and several signs of intoxication,according to a state-m ent from the sheriffs office. While Travis was being transported,Travis made threats to shoot and kill the troopers working the case. A Travis representative said there would be no immediate comment on the arrest. Travis in February was charged with public intoxication after being spotted in a vehicle parked in front of a church in Sanger,about 20 miles from Tioga, where the entertainer lives. He also has been involved in messy court proceedings with his exwife. Travis was divorced from Elizabeth Travis in 2010 after 19 years of marriage. Earlier this year, Elizabeth Travis,who had been his manager for more than three decades, filed a lawsuit claiming that Randy Travis made it impossible for her to do her job and terminated her management contract without proper notice. She said her ex-husband sent several men,including an armed guard,to clean out her offices. Randy Travis countersued in May,accusing his ex-wife of divulging confidential information about him in order to damage his reputation and career. The court documents dont say what information Elizabeth Travis is alleged to have betrayed.
