Come this summer, the USPS will have a new delivery schedule that will consist of mail being delivered only five days a week,Monday-Friday. According to the USPS postmaster general,the discontinuance of Saturday mail delivery is an effort of offset a $16 billion loss last year by the postal service. As of Aug. 1,the Saturday mail service on first class mail items will cease throughout the United States. Other items such as packages,mailorder medicines,priority and express mail will still be eligible for delivery on Saturdays. The USPS has lost $41 billion over the past six years due to a number of changes in the way Americans use the mail service. Services such as e-mail,online banking and private shipping have caused a huge bump in the financial road for the countrys postal service.

C M Y K According to worldcancerday.org, canceris responsible f or more deaths worldwide than HIV/AIDS,tuberculosis a nd malaria combined. Cancer causes one in eight deaths worldwide. O f the 7.6 million global deaths from cancer in 2008, more than 55 percent occurred in less developed countries.. T he news is not all bad. Because of increased awareness,early testing and new t reatments,the American Cancer Society reports a 20 pere nt decline in cancer mortality since 1991. This means approximately 1.2 million people were saved. T hat work must go on. F or men,the three most common cancer sites are the lung,the colon,and the prostrate. These alone account for 4 0 percent of all cancer fatalities in men. The three most common cancers among women occur in the breast,the colon and the cervix,accountiung for about 40 percent of all cancer deaths in women. G lobally,the United States is in the top 10 of countries suffering the highest cancer rates 300/100,000. A ccording to the National Cancer Institute,between 2 005-2009,cancer death rates per 100,000 people were a lmost the same in the country as a whole and the state of F lorida 178 and 170 respectively. In Highlands County the rate was lower,155 per 1 00,000. T he good news is the National Cancer Institute ranks H ighlands County 58 out of the states 67 counties in t his case the lower on the list the better and the countys cancer death rates are dropping. P art of this progress against cancer is possible because c itizens have joined together in Relays for Life to raise awareness,and money for research and patient support. F or example,the Tanglewood ResidentsCancer Benefit has raised close to $400,000 in the last 14 years. F or the rest of the winter and early spring keep a look o ut for funding raising events,and pass on a dollar or two. Remember April is the month of local Relays for Life. A von Parks is April 12; Sebrings April 20 and Lake P lacid April 26. Plan to spend one of those days playing games,eating homemade food,and listening to music,all f or a cause that touches just about every family in the c ountry God forbid,even yours. Fighting cancer is an everyday battle. Page 4AN ews-SunF riday, February 8, 2013www.newssun.comTODAYSEDITORIALTODAYSLETTERS Monday was World Cancer Day.

We want you to learn the Bible and grow with us. You may learn that Jonah went towards Tarshish instead of Nineveh where God instructed him. You do know how God helped get him back on course. You see Jonah was like so many evangelists today, wanting not to step on toes. When an evangelist today stays with the Bible,many times somebody will be offended by truth. The person does not stop and think that this is not the word of the speaker that hurts,but the Word of God. We humans tend to overlook our loved ones wrongs,and we do not like to hear about them. Creston Frezzell,a Godfearing young single man, will share his love of God with you. His knowledge of the Bible is far greater than most. You will get book, chapter and verse. If your toes get stepped on,he will show you book,chapter and verse if you are interested. Sunday evening we watch a vhs,So the World Might Know,what history you can learn. Wednesday you have the privilege to study with Frank Parker. Frank will show how Noah was saved by Gods grace. You will learn about your heart,intelligence,emotions,will,conscience and application of whole heart. Come fellowship and learn from the one and only book of Gods word. See if you can feel the love around you. Chapman Chamberlin Sebringreason by elected officialsEditor: We elected public officials to serve the people,not to dictate the laws or change the Constitution we all live by. The take-over of the American people,who they took an oath to represent and defend,is a crime against the people. The American people stated that they do not want another round of amnesty that nearly destroyed all of our social programs and our wage scale,making millions of Americans homeless. They also want to destroy the second amendment to disarm a free people so they can destroy us. The first amnesty nearly destroyed our electoral process by allowing illegals to create a voting block and it cost our social programs trillions of dollars. How was an invading workforce allowed to vote? Illegally? Where do they come up with these polls that state the American people want gun control or amnesty? Could it be their own polls? What makes the newly re-elected President think he has dictative powers? There are no dictators,kings or queens in America,with the power to re-write the Constitution. We are a nation of laws that we all are required to live by. The promotion of illegal voting blocks to stay in political power by either party,using an illegal foreign workforce,is criminal. This crime against the people of America by its own elected officials will not go silently.This creating of illegals,a new voting block, will not be tolerated by the American people. To reward a criminalinvading foreign nation citizenship will not stand. It will create a nation within a nation,two languages. You only have to look to your Bible to see the many problems that will befall us. Look at the world around us, continually at war. Is this what we,the American people,want for our nation and our children? Speak up before we have 20 million illegal citizens to compete within a nation where all of our jobs have been offshored and most of those replacing us speak a different language. The American immigration laws demand that there must be jobs before immigration can take place. It also demands control of our borders. If we are not a sovereign nation with borders,what are we? Many jobs now require Spanish. Immigration requires English. Billie E. Jewett Sebring BouquetSalute to Dealers honor is fittingEditor: Congratulations to Bill Jarrett for winning the Salute to Dealersaward from Ford for being an outstanding corporate citizen. Bills support of the Tanglewood Residents Cancer Benefit has been greatly appreciated. Every dealing with Bill and his staff has been courteous and helpful. Whenever weve asked for help theve gone above what we had expected. This week,258 Tanglewood community members had a chance to drive one of Bill Jarretts Fords. For this,he is donating $2,500 to our cancer benefit for the third year in a row.We thank you,Bill,for your support of our efforts and congratulate you on your achievement. Neil Simpson Chair Tanglewood residents' Cancer Benefit Fighting cancer every day Due to an act of Congress,Cubann ationals who arrive in the U.S. after 1959 cannot be illegal immigrants. Therea utomatically refugees. Its amnesty! The federal government has spent billionst o assist those whove fled Castros regime. It was aC old War policy,signed by President Johnson. If they can get to our shores( many have died in the process),they have an i nstant pathway to citizenship. They just have to get here. And since 1995,havew hat is referred to as dry feet. I say this to Republicans who seem to be aspiring now to win the Latino vote: Cubans are not Mexicans. So when the party toutsF lorida Senator Marco Rubio as their go-to Latino Politico called Rubio the fresh-faced ambassador to conservatives(Itss ince been scrubbed) there not wooing the 31 m illion Latinos who identify themselves as MexicanAmerican,the biggest L atino group and therefore biggest Latino voting bloc in the U.S. Cubans may speak Spanish,and be froms omeplace else,but their immigration experience is unique to the island they come from ... and our policy toward said island. A nd Puerto Ricans,the second largest Latino g roup in the country,are also not illegals.ThereA mericans. The island is a U.S. territory. Im just trying to help you out, Republicans. The point is:Putting M arco Rubio out on immigration reform is cynical conservative tokenism (ala Sarah Palin,Herman Cain and Nikki Haley),but ita lso proves the hypothesis by Mexican-Americans: Republicans dont actually care about them. One clue is that they assume there pretty much Cubans. Immigration reforms focus (and sticking point is what to do about the estimated 11 million people who live here without documentation. A 2005 Pew Hispanic Center report says 56 percent of them are from Mexico,22 percent from other Latin American countries (mainly Central America),13 percent are Asian,6 percent Canadian and European and 3 percent African. (None are Cuban.) These 11 million people nearly 80 percent of whom are Latino and using what Newt Gingrich called the language of the ghetto make up our underground economy and exploited underclass. Republicans have loved vilifying this group of people:From candidate for Governor of California Meg Whitman saying we should prosecute illegal aliens and criminal aliens in all of our cities,in every part of California,to Arizonas SB 1070 and Congressman Brian Bilbray say-i ng you can tell if someone is illegal (not by their race, but) by their shoes. Bilbray losth is seat,by the way. And Meg who? Mitt Romnes planwas fors elf-deportation. He also went after Mensa contender RickP erry for educating illegalsin his state. But then went on Univision with ad ark bronze tan to address Spanish speakers. M itt who? Republicans have opted for a Southern Strategy:aS outh-of-the-Border Southern Strategy. It failed. N ow there trying to reverse course. The Hispanic Leadership Network,a GOP-affiliated group,suggested the partyn ix the words illegals and aliensand not use t he word amnesty,which some tea-buzzed Republicans took as a chal-l enge to see how many times they could use all t hree in a sentence. Its hard to teach the Grand Old Party new tricks. R epublicans moralize about illegal immigrants. re a nation of laws: they broke the law. End of sound bite.If we canm ake the subjugated underclass somehow immoral then their continued exploitation is therefore acceptable. The labor theyd o doesnt need to be fairly paid for its penance for b reaking the law.To Republicans,the wave ofi mmigration from Mexico is a giant chain gang. When they get here,there automatically felons so they deserve what they get. B ut this has backfired on Republicans. It lost them the White House (yet again). They realize this. They want to be in power.T hat means they need the Latino vote. Their solution is to prop up a CubanAmerican (whose parents came to this country before Castro) to go on Hannity and relay that his plan for the undocumented is for them to stand in line:ou have to wait your turn behind everyone who applied before you legally, and when your turn comes up,you have to qualify for the visa youre applying for. Giving weight to a Cuban-American on illegal immigration is like giving credence to the head of HSBC (or Barclays or UBS for that matter) on prisons.

The Skyliners created a new style of music by combining the streetwise harmonies of rhythm and blues groups like the Moonglows and the Flamingos with the most sophisticated modern harmony style of the Four Freshman and the Hi Los. Just as important a factor in the longevity was the business partnership between Jimmy Beaumont and aptly named manager,Joe Rock, that kept the act commercially viable for more than four decades.

If this person has an out-s tanding warrant,would he tend to provide the correct identification? Chances are he might not. Now Highlands County s heriffs deputies have the solution. Simply call the sergeant on duty in your zone and have him run Rapid ID on your subjects. Identification is confirmed.T he rules of search and seizure still apply with the u se of these devises,however,any tool given to our deputies to expedite identifi-c ation in the field leads to efficiencies but most import antly to the safety of our deputies. They can quickly determine who they are really dealing with on the street under the proper circum-s tances. Rapid ID is a hand held f ingerprint scanner that utilizes modern wireless technology to verify identity.T his system searches the databases of known Florida c riminals and the FBIs Repository for Individuals of Special Concern (RISCT his unit captures forensic quality fingerprints for identification,however when time permits and upon booking into the jail,a ten print submission is still the best and most thorough identificationu sing fingerprints. The Highlands County S heriffs Office is fortunate to have nine of these units in operation at this time. Then orth and south patrol sergeants on each of four squads h as one and the Sergeant in the Safe Neighborhoods Unit accounts for the ninth device. A t a cost of just more than $2,000 each,they were purchased using Forfeiture Funds,monies seized and forfeited from criminal enter-p rises. In use for the past several m onths,deputies are pleased with this new tool for law enforcement. It works very well. I have positively identified several s ubjects and made an arrest on a subject who attempted to hide his identity during an i nvestigation,said Sergeant MickeCloninger. Sergeant Anthony McGann commented,I find this to bea useful tool and have been able to use it successfully. When members of his squad came upon a Hispanic male who was unconsciousa nd lying in an orange grove, McGann used Rapid ID to identify the man and was able to get his family to respond to assist him. S ergeant Jamie Davidson related that,Another subject who attempted to hide hisi dentity when he was served a warrant was convinced to provide the correct namew hen informed the Rapid ID unit was enroute. Even when s ubjects provide their correct names but they have no identification on their person,R apid ID can confirm their identity on the spot. S heriff Susan Benton is also pleased with this new technology. Anything we can do to provide our deputies with current accu-r ate information on subjects they are dealing with on the s treet increases their chances of going home at the end of their shift. The well-being ofo ur deputies is paramount as they uphold our mission day i n and day out to protect life, property and individual rights while maintaining p eace and order.

Duane Dively was returning from a mission over Afghanistan when the U-2 spy plane he was piloting malfunctioned. For the next6 3 seconds,Maj. Dively did what hed been doing for two decades. He put his country first. e think he tried to bring t he plane in,the pilots mother,Donata Dively,told The Unknown Soldiers. He could have ejected,but that wasnt the way he wasb uilt,his father,Bill Dively, added. Prior to the June 22,2005 mission,Duane risked his life in almost every United States conflict since Desert Storm.C iting what he felt was an obligation to serve,Duane joined t he Marine Corps shortly after 241 U.S. service members were killed in the 1983 terrorista ttack on the U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut. B ut ever since the Canton, N.Y. natives first time in an airplane,Duanes head was always tilted toward the heavens. He always wanted to fly, his mom said. Duane had a d etermination ... he was very tenacious. Duane later joined the Air F orce to fulfill his lifelong dream. After earning his wings i n 1990,the pilot flew wherever his country needed him. From Desert Storm to the B alkans to Somalia ... it seemed like he was always overseas,Bill said. A fter registering a perfect score on his pilot tests,Duane b egan flying the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft,which had become a household name during the Cold War. For most of the next decade and particular-l y after 9/11,Duanes parents, who live in Hollidaysburg,Pa., rarely knew where their son was flying. Hed say youre not on the need to know list,Donata said with a gentle laugh. Duane was usually collecting crucial intelligence overA fghanistan and Iraq during missions that he would often volunteer to fly. If other (pilots dren,particularly around the holidays,Duane would volun-t eer for those three-month deployments so they could s pend time together,Donata said. In early 2005,with America s uffering almost daily casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan, t he happily married pilot could have retired. Duane,who was about to turn 43,decided to keep flying. They go into the service b ecause they love what there doing,Donata said of brave m en and women like her son. They have the dedication to the people of the United States,t heir country and God. As the U-2 lost power over S outhwest Asia,Duane did everything he could to save a plane hed spent countless h ours navigating through the clouds of war. It costs about $7 million to train a good pilot,Duanes father said,his voice crackingw ith emotion. He made the most out of everything he did. The memorial service honoring Duane,who was one of a select few to ever pilot the U-2,w as held in a massive C alifornia hangar next to another spy plane he once flew. Whenever there was a trouble spot,Duane was there,an Air Force officer told the packed Beale Air Force Base audience. W hile its been more than seven years since Duane's final a ct of courage,the lives of his wife,parents and brother are forever changed. No birthday,holiday or any day having anything to do with t hat child is ever the same, Donata said. When Bill plays golf,he a lways tilts his head upward toward the blue sky,where his oldest son helped define several chapters of American history. I think of him all the time, h e said. Duane is buried at Arlington National Cemetery,where he rests among brothers and sisters in arms who also fought top reserve freedom. But as A mericas post-9/11 conflicts fade from our national cons ciousness,the fallen heros mother is worried. So many times its only the immediate families that realize the sacrifice,Donata said. And I just think we need other people to keep in mind the p rice that so many people are paying. Maj. Duane Dively devoted n early every second to keeping others safe. For that,along w ith the final 63 seconds of his extraordinary life,the hero pilot's parents have no doubt w here their sons soul now flies. I think the Lord felt that Duane had used every talent the Lord had given him,D onata said. It was time for his reward.

C M Y K By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical WriterDeep-fried foods may be causing trouble in the DeepS outh. People whose diets are heavy on them and sugary drinks like sweet tea and soda were more likely to suffer a stroke,a new study finds. I s the first big look at diet and strokes,and researchers say it might help explain why blacks in the Southeast the nations stroke belt suf-f er more of them. Blacks were five times more likely than whites toh ave the Southern dietary pattern linked with the highest stroke risk. And blacksa nd whites who live in the South were more likely to eat t his way than people in other parts of the country were. Diet might explain as mucha s two-thirds of the excess stroke risk seen in blacks vers us whites,researchers concluded. re talking about fried foods,french fries,hamburgers,processed meats,hotd ogs,bacon,ham,liver,gizzards and sugary drinks,said t he studys leader,Suzanne Judd of the University of Alabama in Birmingham. P eople who ate about six meals a week featuring these s orts of foods had a 41 percent higher stroke risk than people who ate that way a bout once a month, researchers found. In contrast,people whose diets were high in fruits,vegetables,whole grains and fishh ad a 29 percent lower stroke risk. s a very big difference, Judd said. The message for people in the middle ist heres a graded risk the likelihood of suffering a s troke rises in proportion to each Southern meal in aw eek. Results were reported Thursday at an American Stroke Association conference in Honolulu. T he federally funded study was launched in 2002 to explore regional variations in stroke risks and reasons for them. More than 20,000 peo-p le 45 or older half of them black from all 48 mainland states filled outf ood surveys and were sorted into one of five diet styles: Southern:Fried foods, p rocessed meats (lunchmeat, jerky),red meat,eggs,sweet d rinks and whole milk. Convenience:Mexican and Chinese food,pizza,p asta. Plant-based:Fruits,vege tables,juice,cereal,fish, poultry,yogurt,nuts and whole-grain bread. Sweets:Added fats, breads,chocolate,desserts,s weet breakfast foods. Alcohol:Beer,wine, l iquor,green leafy vegetables,salad dressings,nuts and seeds,coffee. There not mutually exclusiv for example, h amburgers fall into both convenience and Southern diets,Judd said. Each person g ot a score for each diet, depending on how many meals leaned that way. Over more than five years of follow-up,nearly 500s trokes occurred. Researchers saw clear patterns with the Southern and plant-based diets; the other three didnt seem to affects troke risk. There were 138 strokes a mong the 4,977 who ate the most Southern food,com-p ared to 109 strokes among the 5,156 people eating the least of it. There were 122 strokes among the 5,076 who ate the m ost plant-based meals, compared to 135 strokes among the 5,056 people who seldom ate that way. The trends held up after r esearchers took into account other factors such as age, income,smoking,education,e xercise and total calories consumed. Fried foods tend to be e aten with lots of salt,which raises blood pressure a k nown stroke risk factor, Judd said. And sweet drinks can contribute to diabetes,t he disease that celebrity chef Paula Deen the queen o f Southern cuisine revealed she had a year ago. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke,drugmaker AmgenI nc. and General Mills Inc. funded the study. This study does strongly suggest that food does have an influence and peoples hould be trying to avoid these kinds of fatty foods and h igh sugar content,said an independent expert,Dr. Brian Silver,a Brown U niversity neurologist and stroke center director at Rhode Island Hospital. I dont mean to sound like an ogre. I know whenI m in New Orleans I certainly enjoy the food there. But you dont have to make a regular habit of eating all this stuff.

Over the past two years, the USPS has slashed the hours of workers at more than 25,000 post offices nationwide as well as scaled back its workforce by 35 percent in hopes of saving money. USPS worker Tammy Lewis is an 11-year postal employee in the city of Sebring. Known as a city carrier,Lewis makes her rounds along U.S. 27,stopping at several local businesses. Lewis had caught wind of the upcoming changes in the USPS procedures from a work meeting that took place at the main branch near Lakeshore Mall on Wednesday. I do know that any of the branches that are currently already open on Saturdays will remain open,Lewis said. Lewis confirmed that the USPS will be discontinuing the Saturday first class mail deliveries in August,but will deliver packages and priority mail items. As far as lay-offs or employment at the local branch,Lewis believes there hasnt been any in quite some time. The local branch has implemented a different manner in which they take on employment issues. e do have a hold on hiring,like a hiring freeze, Lewis said.

C M Y K SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, February 8, 2013 Page 3D News-Sun photo by TAYLOR TUBBS Blue Streak southpaw Jonathon Struck pitched the bulk of Tuesdays season opener against county rival Avon Park at Head Field. Sebring jumped out to an early lead before the R ed Devils climbed back into it and tied it at 6-6 in the sixth inning. But the Streaks struck the last blow when they scored in the top of the seventh for the win. Both Sebring and Avon Park will be in action next week in the Bill Jarrett Preseason Classic. Streaks sneak out a win Fishin Around... Don Norton Last weekend was the first time in months that I wasnt able to get out and do some fishing, so I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce Dan Echols, a conservationist with a true passion for fishing and nature. Some of you may remember a previous article I wrote about Dans grandson, Louie, the 11-year old bass fishing phenom featured in numerous publications for his big bass catches. As they say, the apple doesnt fall to far from the tree, and in Louies case, his grandfather has been his teacher and mentor, as well as his constant fishing buddy. But in addition to being an avid fisherman, Dan is also an artist. Avery good one! Dan was born in Sanford, Florida, moving in his youth to Fort Myers and spending countless days on the banks of the brackish waters of the Caloosahatchie River. He had his first boat by the age of 10 and was allowed the freedom to explore a twenty-mile stretch, earning him the appropriate nickname river rat. At 14, Dan took a summer job on a shrimp boat where his love for fishing, nature and the great outdoors continued to grow. Drafted into the United States Army in 1970, Dan married his childhood sweetheart Lori and together, raised two daughters. Like so many of us baby boomers, Dan started his working career and was able to fit fishing, as well as his love of nature, into the many years that followed. Always an admirer of nature, Dan also enjoyed painting. Often too busy fishing, painting always took a back seat to his adventurous spirit and desire to spend his time The Art of Fishing See FISH, Page 4B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Gus Owens and the Red Devils ran past Lake Placid Tuesday night to advance to tonights District Tournament title game. By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Perhaps it was a bit of a hangover from an emotional victory the night before. Maybe the extra day of rest and continued progress in team chemistry and attitude played a part. Acombination of the two was in effect Tuesday night as Avon Park ran past Lake Placid in the 72-52, District 10-4ATournament semifinal contest. e may have been a little tired from last night, Dragon head coach John Million said, regarding his teams hardfought win over Mulberry. But we just dont have the athleticism to keep up with Avon Park. They played their game and took it to us. That certainly was the case as the Red Devils claimed the early lead and just kept building upon it. The lead reached double figures midway through the second quarter when Steven Roberts put-back made it 27-16, with Jovan Pratt extending it moments later with a three pointer. Marquavein Copeland would split a pair at the line and Nick Tuason canned a jumper for Lake Placid, but Travis Lawton scored on a follow and free throw and Tevion Chambers hit a three pointer just before the break for a 36-19 Avon Park lead at halftime. T he Dragons would continue to battle with Jonah Brown hitting a three and Tuason putting back an offensive rebound. But the Devils kept answering back, soon with a 6-0 run on two Alfred Brown free throws, a Roberts follow and a Lawton score inside. Anfernee Munnings hit a three to stop the run, but a free throw each from Tyrone Perry and Recarus Burley pushed the lead to 50-31 after three. Things stayed pretty even the rest of the way, and both offenses picked up the pace, but Avon Park got the better of the 22-21, fourth-quarter split to provide for the final score and send the Devils to the District championship game against DeSoto. The character and attitude of this team has gotten so much better as the year has gone on, Avon Park head coach Marty OHora said. Taking their time offensively, making the extra pass, which is what we hoped for, to be playing at our best at this time of the year On the match-up with DeSoto, OHora knows his squad will have to keep it going. e beat them both times during the season, by 10 here and by one at Red Devils cruise toward District Final See AP, Page 4B Avon Park72Lake Placid52 News-Sun photo by MARIANABECKE R Terrell Williams and the Blue Streaks saw their season come to an end Tuesday night, but have much to look forward to. By ERIKACORD News-Sun correspondent SEBRING In Tuesday nights game, the Blue Streaks laced up their shoes for the last time this season due to their loss against Kathleen in the District Tournament game with a final score 72-55. ith 161 deficit in the beginning, the boys kept up the intensity, and kept at the game. Sebring head coach Princeton Harris explained. And kept it up they did, coming out of the first half with a score of 39-29, Streaks only down by 10. To kick off the third quarter, Josh Austin started out with a layup but Kathleen answered back with a three pointer. Austin threw in a foul shot, adding another point on the board, and Quantrae Rouse followed that up with a layup off of a rebound. Austin, already on fire, finished off the third with four more points, but that couldnt dent the Red Devil lead as the period ended with Kathleen up, 52-38. Luke Ancrum put a point up with a foul shot to open the fourth, and Terrell Williams added two more with a layup. Ancrum made back-toback to back jump shots keeping the score on a fast ascent, hoping for a W. Williams soon sank a three pointer, which kept a glimmer of hope alive. In the last 35 seconds of the game Kevin Alvarado made a foul shot to put another point on the board, but Alvarados next basket would be Sebrings last of the game, and as it turned out, the season. Im not happy with the loss but Im happy with the way we fought, Harris said. We had a lot of turnovers tonight, and 90percent of the points Kathleen scored were from our turnovers. Although, we did play really good defense. They had a lot of heart, and believed in themselves, he continued. The skys the limit and anything is possible when you believe in yourself. And so the season comes to an end, with the team bidding farewell to seniors Decaris Jones, Josh Austin and Ezell Gammage. But with a slew of players returning, and summer league ball on the horizon, there is always an eye forward to the possibilities of what lay ahead. Blue Streaks strike out in Districts Avon Park72Lake Placid52 B y DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Its been a hard road for Sebring senior Arthur Williams, but in the end, his perseverance has paid off as he joined the ranks on National Signing Day by accepting a football scholarship to the University of Massachusetts. Having lost time in school and a piece of himself as his mother lost a long battle with cancer, Williams found a door openb y the empathy of the FHSAA, with waivers granted for his continued e ligibility. And with that door open, Williams made the most of i t. s a really great feeling, he said Wednesday morning. Ive worked so hard to get here and now I ve got a great opportunity at a great school. Adual threat with the Blue Streaks on both sides of the ball, as a receiver and defensive back, Williams will stick to defense with the Minutemen. I think Ill be getting time at both safety and cornerback, he said. They know I can play safety, but they said they want to work me more toward cornerback, where they think I can be more of a weapon. UMass, currently in the Mid-American Conference, but slated to move to the Big East for the 2014 seas on, is a big step to take, both football wise and scholastically. But rather than see it as an obstacle, its an opportunity for Williams who plans to pursue a degree in Criminal Justice. s a great school and I really like the location, he said. It will be different and cold. I know Ive got to keep hitting the weight room and work hard with my studies, but I cant wait to get started. For Sebring, this adds another to the long list of players head coach LaVaar Scott has seen take the next step. Williams headed to UMass News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Arthur Williams joined prep football players around the nation on National Signing Day, trading his signature for a scholarship to the University of Massachusetts.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThat hot start by the Lady Blue Streak tennis team got a cold dose Tuesday against a tough Lakeland squad, getting one match win and dropping the other six. That win came at No. 2 Singles, where Joy Donglasan got a bit of revenge against Sarah Coleman, who had beaten her in the District finals a season ago. Donglasan took a 6-2, first-set win before Coleman stormed back to even it up with a 6-0 second-set win. Donglasan prevailed, though, with a 10-4 edge in the tie-breaker for the victory. And though that marked the lone win of the day, head coach Jean Hollinger saw the benefit of playing such strong competition early in the season. The girls played exceptional tennis and the scores do not reflect their level of play, she said. They played great and fought hard for every point. Over in Lake Placid, the Lady Dragons have gotten themselves off to a 2-0 start with a Monday win over Clewiston and a Tuesday sweep of Avon Park. Hannah Waller fell in the No. 1 Singles match to Clewistons Anessa Leyva Monday, but was picked up by big wins in the rest of the singles matches. At No. 2, Stephanie Rodriguez went 6-0, 6-0, at No. 3, Claire LeBlanc won by 6-1, 6-0 scores and Jenna Blount was only slightly less generous with a 6-2, 6-0 win. Rachel Shattler then put an exclamation point on the singles matches with a 6-0, 6-0 rout at No. 5. Waller and Rodriguez then teamed up for an 8-4 win at No. 1 Doubles, while LeBlanc and Blount shared the court for an 8-2 win at No. 2. At Avon Park Tuesday, with an abbreviated match, Lake Placid got wins in singles from Shattler at No. 1, Nelida Torres at No. 2 and Jillian Gadsden at No. 3. Shattler and Torres then got an 8-2 win in the lone doubles match of the day. This year, the girls are working together to, as we call it, GWIT, head coach Jennifer Giguere said. Give what it takes. They already have this determination and drive for the season to be at the top of their game. e lost one senior, Deta Waller, but gained three new players with Torres, Gadsden and Sophia Hernandez, she continued. Theyve picked up the game very well and make the most of practice. The returning players are very consistent and strong at the net. They are playing with a lot of enthusiasm and having a lot of fun in the process. The season continued Thursday for both Sebring and Lake Placid as the two teams squared off with the Streaks looking to get back on the winning track and the Dragons hoping to continue on theirs.

C M Y K By MARK DIDTLER Associated PressTAMPA Adismal first half doomed South Florida against No. 24 Marquette. Todd Mayo and Vander Blue both scored 13 points to help Marquette beat South Florida 70-47 on Wednesday night. Mayo had all of his season-high 13 points in the first half as Marquette (16-5, 7-2 Big East) grabbed a 39-16 halftime lead. e dug ourselves a bad hole in the first half, South Florida coach Stan Heath said. Once they got off to that lead, it was hard to overcome that. Too good of a team to let them breakout toa lead, Junior Cadougan added 11 points for Marquette, which was coming off a 70-51 loss to then No. 12 Louisville last Sunday. South Florida (10-12, 1-9 which has lost five in a row, got 14 points from Zach LeDay. The Bulls made just 5 of 18 shots, and had 14 turnovers in the opening half. Marquette scored 23 points during the session off turnovers. s very frustrating being down, but we knew why we were down, its because of the turnovers, LeDay said. e need to fix that. We need to fix that, period. The Golden Eagles shot 53.8 percent (14 of 26 the opening 20 minutes. Marquette has dominated the all-time series, winning 19 of 22 games against the Bulls. The Golden Eagles won the other meeting between the teams this season, 63-50 on Jan, 28, behind 30 points by Blue. Obviously, I dont want to reveal some of the specifics of the changes that we made, but I thought we executed them pretty well, Williams said. And I think it looks better, too, when you make shots. It wasnt like it was James Naismith or anything as far as the adjustments. Cadougan opened the scoring with a 4-point play, part of an early 13-3 run by the Golden Eagles. Mayo had a pair of 3s during a 15-3 surge as Marquette extended its advantage to 32-13. The Golden Eagles took their biggest lead of the opening half, 38-13, with 2:10 left on Chris Otules basket. South Florida got within 20 early in the second half before Marquette again went up by 25 on Cadougans long-range jumper. Marquette later extended the lead to 29, at 62-33, when Blue scored on a layup. Theyre a dangerous team, a team with certain guys that want to play, especially down here, Blue said. ou get down here, you get caught up in the weather and then you play in an arena with 2,000 fans.

The first person to describe tennis elbow was DrH enry Morris who described his elbow pain after playing t oo much lawn tennis in an article in Lancet and his name Lawn Tennis Arms tuck. The muscles that extend the fingers,thumb,wrist and t urn the hand palm up all have a common tendon orig in on the outside of the elbow.Tennis elbow can be caused either by repetitive motion like hammering or turning wrenches or by a sin-g le high force injury to the common tendon such as a blow or a sudden stretch. The most common symptom is pain on the outside of the elbow. In severe cases there is pain with straightening thee lbow since the tendon crosses the joint. Using any of the m uscles that arise from the common origin is painful. Turning door knobs is often difficult. A strong grip is dependent on the wrist beings tabilized in extension. Pain with grip is another common problem with tennis elbow. The diagnosis is easy to make on exam. There is ten-d erness on the lateral side of the elbow in the area of the common origin.T he wrist is painful w ith extending (bringingt he back of the hand up) a gainst resistance. T here is sometimes pain with resistance to extending the fingers or turning the hand palm up or straightening the elbow. T he first treatment is to use a band just below the elbow. If worn snuggly,it keeps the muscles from moving under the skin and pulling on the real attachment at the elbow. This allows the sore tendont o rest and heal and lets the patient still use his arm. Antii nflammatories such as Naprosyn or a steroid shot in the tendon are helpful. If the elbow does not get better, then the therapist can assistb y helping to stretch tight muscles or tendons. Ninety percent of patients get better with these techniques,but it may take several months. Ther emainder will require surgery to get better. Surgery aims at lengthening a tendon that has become too tightw ith injury. A similar problem often c alled Golfers elbow occurs on the inside of the joint. This causes pain with flexingt he fingers or wrist or turning the hand palm down. It is treated the same as tennis e lbow and rarely requires surgery. Dr. Diana D.

Sometimes its hard to eat,but I am under physician care. What natural remedy can soothe myt ummy when its hard to eat? W.C.,Denver,Colo. Answer: Probiotics are fundamental to digestive health. And a diet free ofc ommon food allergens is in order. Today,but something like slippery elm could help. Known as Ulmus fulvto herbalists,the mucilage from the inner bark of the treep rovides extensive nutrition and easy-to-digest complex c arbs. Slippery elm forms a slick gel coating and soothing everything it comes inc ontact with including your mouth,throat,stomach and i ntestines. It could help you with acid reflux,ulcerative colitis, gastritis,chronic pancreatitis,constipation/diarrhea andu lcers. It may support tissue regeneration for people with leaky gut syndrome (a.k.a. excessive intestinal permeability).A bad cough orb ronchitis may respond to the soothing properties of slippery elm. Slippery elms is sold as tablets/capsules,liquid herbal extracts and lozenges.T he lozenges are nice for sore throats. Health food s tores carry powder which is basically just ground up inner bark of the tree. Therea re coarse and fine powders; coarse is needed to make topical poultices which help cuts,bruises and achy joints, such as that from gout. The fine powder can be eaten asa gruel (pronounced like cruel but with a g). S lippery elm contains calcium,manganese,iron,magnesium,phosphorus,potassi-u m,selenium,zinc,betacarotene,vitamin C and p lenty of B vitamins. Children,adults and the elderly can eat this when recuperating from an illness, having trouble digesting orh olding down food or wasting. Think of it as Mother Natures Ensure. The recipe for slippery elm gruel consists of abouto ne tablespoonful fine powder and enough hot water to make a thin,smooth paste. The amount of water used is up to your personal taste. I use one half cup myself andb lend it together. Ill confess right now,its slimy any way y ou make it but thats the point. Sweeten it with organic honey,agave,maple syrupo r stevia and flavor it with with cinnamon,nutmeg, l emon rind or vanilla. Go for the consistency of cream of wheat. Once made,the dosage varies tremendously, some say eat the whole thingi n one sitting,other experts suggest a tablespoon every hour until you can eat solid food again. Perhaps consider your weight,age and severi-t y of malnutrition as well as response. Ask your doctor if this wonderful remedy in any form is approved because there are individual consid-e rations such as your current health status and drug regim en. Some people are allergic to elmpollen,making this a no-no. Other naturally-o ccurring components in slippery elm include betas itosterol,campestrol and a little tannin (which aggravates kidney stones). I couldnt find documented interactions except a theoret-i cal one that says it may render meds and supplements less active,so separate administration of slippery elm from important drugs byt wo hours. Slippery elm soothes many stomach problems Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen S uzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

C M Y K A ssociated PressWASHINGTON The F ood and Drug Administration is warning U.S. doctors about another counterfeit version of the cancer drug Avastin,the third case involving the best-selling Roche drug in the pasty ear. The FDA said in an online p ost Tuesday that at least one batch of the drug distributed by a New York company does not contain the active ingredient in real Avastin,which isu sed to treat cancers of the colon,lung,kidney and brain. The drug was distributed by Medical Device King,which also does busi-n ess as Pharmalogical. The vials are packaged as Altuzan,the Turkish version of Avastin that is not approved for use in the U.S. The agency warned doctors in April about a similar case of fakeTurkish Avastin distributed by a U.K. distributor. Prior to that,the FDA announced in February an investigation into a different batch of fakeAvastin distributed to doctors in several states. Both of those cases appeared to involve different networks of distributors than the latest incident. The FDA said its currently unclear whether any U.S. patients have received the drug. Specifically,Altuzan labeled with the lot numbers B6022B01 and B6024B01 may be counterfeit. Importing even authentic Altuzan into the U.S. is illegal,since the FDA has only reviewed Avastin as safe and effective. The agency is asking doctors to stop using any products from Medical Device King,Pharmalogical or Taranis Medical,another affiliated business. A telephone number listed on Medical Device Kings website was not in service. Company representatives did not immediately respond to emails sent Wednesday. Roches Genentech unit sells Avastin in 120 countries and manufactures and packages the drug at eight sites worldwide. The drug had sales of $5.8 billion in 2012 and was Roches second-best selling drug overall. The injectable drug usually sells for about $2,500 per vial. T he FDA warned doctors to be wary of drug prices that seem too good to be true. Deep discounts may be offered because the producti s stolen,counterfeit,substandard,or unapproved,the agency states.

Jeffrey patted down the l ast heap of earth and replied,Because my goldf ish is inside your stupid cat! I must admit,if given the c hoice,I would rather be the cat. Sometimes,howeve r,we have more in common with the goldfish than we might like to admit. Peter warns us of a enemy that is far more destructivet o mankind than any other. He writes in 1 Peter 5:8, Be of sober spirit,be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil,prowls around like a roaring lion,seekings omeone to devour.If,in fact,we are being hunted r ight now by a predator more dangerous to our lives than any other known tom an,then what can we do about it? Fortunately,God h as already given us the answer. If the devil is seeking to devour us,then we must be prepared for his attack. Thei nspired apostle Paul tells us just how to it. In E phesians 6:10-17,he writes,Finally,be strong in the Lord and in thes trength of His might. Put on the full armor of God,so that you will be able to stand firm against thes chemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,but against the rulers,against the powers,against the world forces o f this darkness,against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore,take up the full armor of God,so that youw ill be able to resist in the evil day,and having done everything,to stand firm.S tand firm therefore,having girded your loins with truth, and having put,and havingp ut on the breastplate of righteousness,and having s hod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all,t aking up the shield of faith with which you will be able t o extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. W hen a country goes to war,it sends soldiers who h ave trained to fight and who are equipped with the tools necessary to win. In our battle with sin,we findo urselves in a situation that is no different. We must train ourselves to be spiritual soldiers by studying the word of God,and we mustf ight the good fight of faith by wearing the full armor of God. Then,we can we defend ourselves against evil; then,we can defeat thee nemy called Satan; then we can win the biggest battle of our eternal lives andb e rewarded in a home call Heaven. Remember,whether p hysically or spiritually,it is always better to be the o ne with the full stomach than to be the one in the full stomach.

Our daily walk in Christ is not always easy. Consider the life of Christ and all His diffi-c ulties on earth and where He walked. Can you imagine the terrain He covered? He went through more in His life than anyone of us on this earth ever will. He felt what we felt and was tempted in the same man-n er that we are,yet He remained without sin. How did H e manage to persevere through all of the difficulties of His journey? What can we learn from His example? The three key elements in H is life that helped Him to endure were prayer,and meditation,and a reliance on Gods word. Matthew 4 shows how Christ used the Scripture tof ight off the Devil when He was being tempted. Often when Christ was weary or afraid,He depended on His Father. One example was soon before His crucifixion in Luke 22:39-46. Prayer helped Him get through temptation,and He drew strength from His father. He also suggested His disciples stay up and pray in order to help them battle temptation. What are some of the difficulties you are facing currently? Are you going through a time where your ride is bumpy like a train going over a rough railroad track through a dark tunnel with a light at the far end? Do you see just a plain white gravel dirt road that goes on for miles with nothing in sight? Does this mean that one is to just keep walking regardless of what the eye cannot see ahead? Maybe this is the part of the journey where God wants His child to walk by faith,not by sight as suggested in II Corinthians 5:7. I dont know what your present situation is,but I encourage you to pray fervently through your situation asking God to give you strength and wisdom to help sustain you. Also,I pray that you will keep your eyes on Christ and trust Him and be still and know that He is God and God alone. Finally,remember,God knows your every need,and as you read the Bible,He will provide you with the truth you need to comfort your spirit. Leslie Deese is a Sebring resident.

C M Y K By JILL LAWLESS A ssociated PressLONDON Stuart F reeborn,a pioneering movie makeup artist behind creatures such as Yoda and Chewbacca in the Star Warsfilms,has died. He was 98. LucasFilm confirmed Wednesday that Freeborn had passed away,leaving a legacy of unforgettable contributions. Star Warsdirector George Lucas said in a statement that Freeborn was already a makeup legend when he started working on Star Wars. He brought with him not only decades of experience, but boundless creative energy,Lucas said. His artistry and craftsmanship will live on forever in the characters he created. His Star Wars creatures may be reinterpreted in new forms by new generations,but at their heart, they continue to be what Stuart created for the original films. Freeborns granddaughter, Michelle Freeborn,said he died Tuesday in London from a combination of ailments due to his age. Michelle Freeborn,who lives in Wellington,New Zealand,said her grandfather was like a heroto her and inspired her and her late father to get into the movie business,too. He was a really fun and imaginative individual.she said. He gave you the feeling that if you wanted to achieve something,you should just get on and do it, and dont ever use excuses. He enjoyed life and the amazing world we live in. Freeborns six-decade career led him to work on many classics,including Stanley Kubricks :A Space Odyssey. Born in London in 1914, Freeborn was the son of a Lloyds of London insurance broker. He told a BBC documentary last year that he resisted pressure to follow in his fathers footsteps, because I felt I was different. He began his film career in the 1930s,working for Hungarian-born director Alexander Korda,and honing his makeup skills on stars including Marlene Dietrich and Vivien Leigh. After air force service during World War II,he worked on British cinema classics including The Life and Death of Colonel Blimpand David Leans 1948 version of Oliver Twist.His transformation of Alec Guinness into Fagin complete with a large hooked nose was criticized by some as antiSemitic,a matter of regret for Freeborn,who said he was partly Jewish. Freeborn later worked with Kubrick,transforming Peter Sellers into multiple characters for Doctor Strangelovbefore designing the apes for s Dawn of Mansequence,in which primates react to am ysterious monolith. But he will likely be best remembered for his work on Star Warscreating characters such as the 7foot-tall wookie Chewbacca and the slug-like Jabba the Hutt. LucasFilm said that Irvin Kershner,who directed The Empire Strikes Back, would note that Freeborn quite literally put himself into Yoda,as the Jedi masters inquisitive and mischievous elfin features had more than a passing resemblance to Freeborn himself. (Yodas looks were also said to be partly inspired by Albert Einstein.) Freeborn recalled being approached by this young fellonamed George Lucas,who told him,ve written a script for a film called Star Wars. He was so genuine about it,I thought,well,young as he is,I believe in him. Hes got something. Ill do what I can for him,Freeborn told the BBC. Nick Maley,a makeup artist who worked with Freeborn in the 1970s, called him a mentor who ran his department like a headmaster. It was my years working with him that helped me learn how to think,how to solve problems,how to not take the most obvious path, Maley said. Everybody will remember him for Star Wars,but he did so much more than that. No one should overlook the groundbreaking work he did on :A Space Odyssey. That was really the forerunner of Star Warsand used a lot of the same technology. Freeborns wife,Kay, died in 2012. Freebornst hree sons Roger,Ray and Graham also died before him. In addition to Michelle, Freeborn is survived by seven grandchildren and a number of great-grandchildren. Associated Press writers Nick Perry in Wellington, New Zealand and Derrik J. Lang in Los Angeles contributed to this report. Dear Abby: When my 9-month-o ld grandson,Eli, comes to visit,I becomef rustrated to the point of leaving the room,ifn ot my house. Not only must we put away things he shouldnt get into,we mustt ape shut every drawer and cabinet,block access behind c ouches and chairs to keep Eli from electrical cords, then constantly be on guardf or the unexpected. Eli is never restricted in a ny way,and would never be confined to an inhumane playpen for even a few minutes. At the slightest whimper,he is picked up. Hesw alked to sleep (or taken on car rides to soothehim), a nd his parents literally run to him whenever he awakens. I m reluctant to criticize because I know thell be o ffended,but Im aching to suggest they teach the child about limits and restrictions a nd correct him when he misbehaves. Let him experience being in his playpen or even allow him to whine a little before jumping at hise very whim. Wre not allowed to say no-no the preferred response being to distract Eli and let him go about doing as he pleases.B y the way,both parents are professional psycho-babble p eople. Am I unreasonable to t hink my grandson is capable of learning limits with a simple no-noand,perhaps,a little smack on his hand? Or should I keep mym outh shut? WellMeaning Grandpa Dear Grandpa: Wellmeaning as you are,I doubt that you will be able to con-v ince two professional psycho-babble peoplethat by not giving their little one limits,they're creating a monster. Rather than allow his visits to upset you,I suggest you visit this family in their own home. Dear Abby: I am shocked at the rude treatment I see many older mothers receive from their children. I spend considerable time at various doctor appointments. Fortunately,I can drive myself,but many senior women must depend on theirc aregivers often their daughters who treat them badly. I cant help but wonder how they treat their mothers in private since theya re so insensitive in public. Im grateful to have a daughter who puts up withm y occasional crankiness and complaints. She loves me unconditionally and takesw onderful care of me when needed. I d like to ask sons and daughters to be kinder and more patient with their eld-e rly moms. They wont be around forever. Grateful M om in Phoenix Dear Grateful: I wish you had described more clearly the interactions you observed. What you saw mayn ot have been a lack of devotion to their mothers, b ut signs of caregiver stress or burnout. Daughters (and sons c aught in the sandwich generation earning a living a nd caring for their children as well as their aged parents are not always at their b est. However,you are correct. These frail,elderly parents need compassion and patience because they wont be around forever. Dear Abby: A question was recently raised at a family gathering. If the patriarch of a family is deceased and am an wants to marry his daughter,should he ask perm ission from her mother? Curious in Pennsylvania D ear Curious: It would be a lovely,respectful gesture if he did. But first he should be 100 percent certain that the daughter wouldl ike to marry him.

Studios come down from the holiday rush by releas-i ng the absolute worst of their back catalogue that would get creamed against real competition. But even when taken with this grain of salt,Hansel and Gretel:W itch Huntersis still a dreadful film. T he premise is that Hansel (Jeremy Renner Gretel (Gemma Arterton)g ot such satisfaction out of killing their first witch (she o f that infamous gingerbread house and fiery fate) that they made it their lifes work to kill the rest of them. Our heroes are sum-m oned to a small village where about a dozen child ren have gone missing. They soon discover that a congregation of witches ledb y Muriel (Famke Janssen) is in town for a ceremony t hat will make them impervious to fire. Naturally,the ceremony requires a bloods acrifice,and Gretels blood fits the bill nicely. But its mostly witch and sleazy h uman blood that gets spilled over the course of t he investigation. The story seems to take place in 19th-century Germany,yet the characters use modernized,automaticw eapons. So not only is the film dumb enough to transport these weapons to its antiquated setting,but it cant think of a way to kill its witches without cheating and resorting to guns. Thep romise of brainless violence is one of the films selling points,and the guns rob us of some creative1 8th-century methods. Also, I kept hoping to see someb ody impaled with a broken-off candy cane from the gingerbread house and itn ever happened. Most of the story takes p lace in a forest of unclear dimensions,so at any given time its impossible to tellw here the characters are in relation to each other. The special effects are terrible; t he witches arent scary and the action sequences make b latant use of bad CGI. The script is peppered with profanity that is maybe supposed to be funny but really just proves how desperatet he film is for a laugh. As for the actors,the film isnt going to do any favors for the careers of Gemma Arterton or Famke Janssen, but its Jeremy Renner who is going to suffer the mostb ecause of this mess. This time last year,he was a bankable action star hot off Mission Impossible:Ghost Protocol. He has sinceg one on to be the lamest Avenger,the face of the botched Bournereboot, and now has this blotch on his permanent record. I do believe that theres potential for a good R-rated Hansel and Gretelmovie. But instead of turning the main characters into adults who hunt witches,leavet hem as children who get lost. Theres plenty of room f or twisted,violent imagery in a straight-up adaptation of the Brothers Grimm tale.P lus you dont get all those embarrassing unintentional l aughs when a grown man and woman introduce themselves as Hansel and Gretel.T his response to the trailers gave me hope that I might be able to enjoy the film as a sort of comedy. It was a nice hope while it lasted, b ut it turns out that Hansel and Gretel:Witch Hunters isnt enjoyable on any level.

C M Y K LIVING 12B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, February 8, 2013 ometimes,history forgets. Sometimes,the big names everyone knows crowd out the smaller ones fewer people recall. Sometimes,when it is time to apportion honor and assign recognition,men and women who ought to be singled out are not. And so,those who inspired the dreams,fanned the flames and stood in the thick of revolutionary change can find themselves left out of the books,short-changed in the reminiscences. In this annual season of black historys celebration,much will be said,and deservedly so,about giants such as Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X,Frederick Douglass and W.E.B. DuBois. But here,in 10 fields of American endeavor,are 10 other names,lesser-known women and men whose contributions and heroism we should remember,always. Leonard Pitts Jr.,The Miami Herald THE POLITICIANP.B.S.Pinchback,1837-1921Pinckney Benton Stewart Pinchback was the free-born son of a white planter and a woman the planter owned and later freed. In 1862,he was assigned the duty of recruiting African-American volunteers for the Union Army forces,but resigned his captains commission in protest of the discriminatory treatment of his men. During Reconstruction,he was a leader in the founding of the Louisiana Republican Party and was elected president pro tempore of the state Senate in 1871. Pinchback became lieutenant governor when the incumbent died. Then,the governor was suspended during impeachment proceedings,and Pinchback succeeded him,too, serving as acting governor of Louisiana from December 1872 to January 1873. He was the first African-American governor in history and,until L. Douglas Wilder became chief executive of Virginia in 1989, the only one. THE ENTREPRENEURMadame C.J.Walker,1867-1919She was born Sarah Breedlove,daughter of a poor farm couple who died while she was still a little girl. She was married at 14; when her husband died,she supported herself as a washerwoman. In 1905,Walker p erfected a formula for straightening the hair of black women; it was the beginning of a cosmetics empire that,by the time of h er death would make her a millionaire one of the first black Americans to achieve that status,if not the first. Walker denied herself no luxury her mansion at Irvington-on-Hudson,N.Y.,is said to have been a regal showplace. But the hair-care magnate was also a generous contributor to good causes; she funded scholarships and gave to the indigent and the needy. THE ACTIVISTA .Philip Randolph,1889-1979His courtly,Sphinx-like demeanor belied the soul of a fighter. Randolph,a leader of the New Negromovement of the early 20th century,was tapped by black railroad workers to lead their fledgling union,the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car P orters,in 1925. It would take years for the union to even get the Pullman Co. to recognize them,years more before an agreement was hammered out,but when it was over,Randolph and his union had won workplace concessions once unthinkable for black employees. In later years, Randolph was instrumental in pushing P resident Franklin Roosevelt to do away with segregation in the defense industry. He was also an organizer of the 1963 March on Washington. THE SINGERM amie Smith,1883-1946Bessie Smith was better known,but Mamie got there first. Her hit,Crazy Blues,recorded in 1920,was the first blues vocal ever recorded and also the first recording by an African-American woman. Despite that distinction,Smith did not think of herself primarily as a blues singer she was a vaudevillian who sang many different styles. The Cincinnati-born vocalist spent the s and s barnstorming across the United States with her Jazz H ounds,a band that included such luminaries as James BubberMiley and Willie The LionSmith. THE JOURNALISTJ ohn Russwurm,1799-1851Although he was technically born a slave in Jamaica,Russwurm enjoyed many privileges of freedom because his father was a white American bachelor. His father, also named John Russwurm,provided a quality education for his son at Bowdoin College in Maine (he graduated in 1826, the third African-American to graduate from an American college). When the elder Russwurm relocated to Massachusetts,he took the boy with him. In 1827,this child o f privilege took up the plight of the American slave. With his partner,SamuelC ornish,he founded Freedoms Journal, the first black newspaper published in the United States. The papers then-controversial credo:Complete freedom and equality for African slaves. As the editors put it in their first editorial,it was time for black people to plead our own cause. THE FILMMAKEROscar Micheaux,1884-1951Oscar Micheaux came of age during the days when filmmakers routinely ignored African-Americans or confined them to subservient,demeaning roles. This was, paradoxically,the key to his success. During the s and s,Micheaux wrote, directed and produced about 30 films keyed to black audiences. Micheaux operated on a budget of next to nothing,raising money directly from his audiences. Thus, there was no such thing as Take twin a Micheaux movie not even when an actor blew his lines. Not surprisingly,the movies were usually awful. Also not surprisingly,an audience starving to see itself reflected on screen flocked to his films. Micheaux,a consummate promoter,would travel from town to town,screening his current movie while raising funds for the next. THE SOLDIERHenry Johnson,1897*-1929Early on the morning of May 14,1918, Henry Johnson and Needham Roberts were standing sentry on a bridge near the Aisne River in France when,without warning, they were attacked by a force of 32 Germans. Cut off from their regimental headquarters and armed only with pistols, knives and a few hand grenades,the two black soldiers somehow stood off the much larger force,pressing the fight even though Johnson was wounded three times and Roberts twice. At one point,the Germans rushed the pair and took Roberts prisoner. By now reduced to using only a bolo knife and the butt of his empty pistol,Johnson nevertheless charged the Germans. He managed to wound as many as 10 of them and to kill at least four more. The startled Germans dropped their prisoner and ran. Johnson and Roberts were both awarded Frances highest military honor,the Croix de Guerre.*Approximate year of birth THE FIGHTERJack Johnson,1878-1946Before there was Muhammad Ali,Joe Louis or Jackie Robinson,there was John Arthur Johnson,a boxer who became historys first black heavyweight champion in 1908 with a victory over Tommy Burns. Johnson spent 15 rounds whipping Burns, carrying on a running dialogue with him as he did so. Finally police stopped the bout. The victory was all the more impressive in light of the fact that Burnsmanager served as referee a concession Johnson had to make in order to get Burns to agree to the fight. Johnsons victory polarized the nation a state of tension made worse by the fact that he was a swaggering,boastful champion given to publicly romancing and marrying white women. Proponents of white supremacy seized upon former champion Jim Jeffries as their great white hopefor snatching the title back from this unruly black man. But the overweight Jeffries,who returned from retirement for the bout,was no match for Johnson,who toyed with him for 15 rounds before knocking him out. THE PREACHERAdam Clayton Powell Sr.,1865-1953He was the grandson of slaves,the father of a flamboyant namesake congressman and a towering figure in his own right. As a boy,Powell,a Virginia native,is said to have learned the alphabet in a day.A y ear later,he was reading from the Bible. A grandfather nudged Powell toward the ministry and he eventually served as pastor of churches in Connecticut and Pennsylvania. The pastorate that made him famous,however,was at Abyssinian Baptist Church in New York City. Under Powells leadership,Abyssinian practiced as ocial gospel that did not limit itself to the pulpit and pews; the church operated a facility for the aged,helped feed the poor, and agitated for racial and economic justice. By the mid-1930s,Abyssinian claimed 14,000 members,making it the largest Protestant congregation in the United States. THE EXPLORERMatthew Alexander Henson,1866-1955On the day in 1887 that he first met Robert Peary,Henson,though only about 21 years old,already had experience as a s tevedore,seaman,bellhop and coachman. Peary thought Henson might make a valuable valet on Pearys attempt to become the first man to reach the North Pole. But Peary soon discovered that Hensons abilities and experiences made him even more valuable as a colleague. As Peary once put it, couldnt get along without him.The men mounted seven expeditions to the Arctic, i ncluding the last,in 1908 and 1909,when t hey finally stood together at the top of the world,the first explorers to do so.
