Rainfall,for example,in the natural environment w ould soak into the forest floor,flow underground,be filtered by natural processes and then eventually feedn earby water bodies. This natural process is interrupted when the land i s covered with roads,parking lots, and buildings. Roofs,concrete, asphalt and other impervious surfaces do not allow rainfall to soak into the earth. Instead,the rainfall runs over the roads,fields and other surfaces picking up pollutants,such as oil,gasoline,pesticides,fertilizers and trasha long the way.The water then runs into a nearby stormdrain or body of w ater without the benefit of filtration. This is called stormwater runoff.

The YouthO lympics is the newest event produced by the YMCA that allows youth in the commun ity to put their talents on display. The Youth Olympics is a sports competition that includes a number of different sporting categories for athletes to participate in. The event will allow participants toc ompete in:an obstacle course,a foot race, football throw,broad jump,basketball shoot,and a freestyle swim. During each of the competitions,participants will go head to head with fellow ath-l etes in their specific age group. There are four age groups for the competition:6-7,89,10-11,and 12-14. Each age division will be split up into a boys and a girls group. This split will enable competitors a more fair and efficient competition. e want to make it as fair as possible, said YMCA Program Director Dave Scheck. Funds raised during the Youth Olympics will go to the Bo Alvarez Childrens Foundation.

Steve Kempe said Thursday evening, while cooking up a batch of chicken cordon bleu for himself and his fellow firefighters in the departments recently renovated kitchen. Editor's note:The first in a three-part series,Feeding the Fire(fighters).By SAMANTHA GHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comAVON PARK Not only is Lt. Steve Kempe a 24-year veteran on the fire department end, the man is no stranger to the kitchen. Everyone calls me the main chef,Kempe said with a chuckle. The experienced cook knows a thing or two about putting out fires as well as burning in the departments newly renovated kitchen. Kempe began cooking at the age of 10,learning the basics from family members. Once he began his career as a firefighter, he took his hobby with him to all of his previous stations before landing at Avon Park Fire Department. They took me in with open arms,Kempe said. When youre putting food in peoples stomachs,they definitely welcome you. Kempe has a number of specialties he brings out for the boys at the fire house,many of which the fellows enjoy and keep coming back for more. Salmon croquet,home dill sauce,chicken cordon bleu,and pork sandwiches are just a few of the staples that Kempe whips up throughout the week at the firehouse. According to Kempe, there are a few firefighter mealsthat every firehouse chef knows and continues to make year after year. Stuff like chili and spaghetti are regular. Its those things that we can cook and reheat if we have to go out on a call. But then there are certain meals that you have to plan ahead for so that they dont ruin during those call outs,Kempe said. The camaraderie of the firehouse meals is what makes the time so special. Each of the firefighters on Kempes C-shift work 24 hour days,so they spend usually three meals together throughout the day. I cook all three meals on a shift. There are five of us on Cshift so we split the costs. We try to keep it around $8 per meal per person,Kempe said.

PB:Power Ball Lottery Center The past year has been unimaginably difficult for Ashley Whitlock. But event hrough grief,the 28-yearold widow of U.S. Air Force Capt. Nick Whitlock knows her husband died doing what he loved most. Nick was a man of faith and passion,Ashley told The Unknown Soldiers from Atlanta. He very much felt that we were called to servei n any capacity we can. Ashley and Nick became friends after meeting as students at Mercer University in Macon,Ga. They started dating shortly after graduation,j ust as Nick was beginning to pursue his dream of b ecoming a military pilot. e all encouraged him to go for it,Capt. Whitlocksf ather,Jimmy,said. He thought about it from a far for a very long time, Nicks mother,Clare,said from the couples Newnan, Ga.,home. Despite competing against A ir Force Academy graduates,Nick,who majored in f inance,excelled in pilot training. But just like in high school,when the handsome,p opular star athlete would hide awards and trophies in h is closet,Nick remained humble and focused. He earned the highest p ilot slot,Ashley said. Doors were opening for him and he was doing what h e was supposed to be doing. A nother thing Nick realized he was supposed to do was ask Ashley to marry him. The couple exchanged vows on Nov. 10,2010 inJ acksonville. ou dont see too many people happily married anymore,Clare said. It was just a joy to see them together. Nick was stationed at H urlburt Field with the Air Forces 34th Special O perations Squadron. While thrilled to be starting a new life with the man she loved, Ashley,like so many military spouses,had to maked ifficult adjustments when her husband began deploying o verseas. d always heard in the military that your friends become your family,and its true,she said. You learn tow eather it together. On Valentines Day 2012, N ick kissed Ashley goodbye and left for another deployment. As usual,the airmanc ouldnt tell his wife much about the classified mission, b ut on Feb. 17,Nick called Ashley from his bases cafe. He told me he missed me l ike crazy,and we started counting down until he came back,she said. T he next night,with storms filling the northwest F lorida sky,Ashles father answered a knock on his daughters front door. It wasa pair of solemn,uniformed airmen,who informedA shley that her husband was dead. Theres nothing that can prepare you for that,she said. I have to believe that God had a hand in the fact that my family was therew ith me. According to the P entagon,Nick,29,and three fellow airmen were killed on Feb. 18,2012, when their U-28 aircraft crashed in the African nationo f Djibouti. The team flew surveillance and reconnaissance missions in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. In the beginning,youd wake up startled at night, and it was just horrible, because you were hoping it wasnt real,Nicks fathers aid. Now its set in. ou wake up thinking about it and you go to sleep thinking about it,his mom said. I n Florida,the base and surrounding area sprung into action. The community as a whole really stepped up to help all the families,Ashleys aid. In Georgia,where Nick w as buried,the outpouring of support astonished the fallen airmans wife and par-e nts. One year after Nicks death,American flags and y ellow ribbons still decorate Newnan. ve said it a hundred times,Clare said. Ive never felt alone. He wasnt just my young man,Jimmy added. He b elonged to the community. To harness the enthusiasm for keeping Nicks spirita live,the fallen hero's loved ones and friends joined to f orm the Captain Nicholas Schade Whitlock Memorial Foundation,which providesc ollege scholarships to ambitious young students. I want the whole world to k now about Nick and what he stood for,Jimmy said. I enjoyed the boy he was, but I loved to see the man he became,Clare said. Ashley will always treasure the time she spent withC apt. Nick Whitlock. But before she sees him again, she is determined to follow her husbands lead. Through our loss,theres a chance to do something for somebody else,she said.

C M Y K A t The Associated Pressannual legislative planning meeting recentl y in Tallahassee,Democratic and R epublican leaders pointed fingers a nd traded accusations over who w as to blame for the voting foulups last November in several areas o f the state. Naturally,the focus w as on the 2011 law that among other things reduced the number of e arly voting days. ... W hats important is to make changes necessary to ensure the p roblems dont repeat,not scoring partisan political points. Many of the provisions of the 2 011 law seemed unnecessary and ill-advised at the time,and the 2012 e lection only cemented that belief. R epublicans at the time argued that reforms were needed to combat v oter fraud,even though there was s cant evidence such fraud was o ccurring. At the meeting,GOP leaders didnt even mention voter f raud. M aybe thats because they were t oo busy fending off Democratic c harges that the real aim of the 2011 law was to suppress minority v oter turnout that overwhelmingly b enefits Democrats. One example o f racial bias Democrats pointed to w as eliminating early voting on the Sunday before Election Day,which i n 2008 had been the day many A frican-American voters had cast their ballots after attending church ( a get-out-the-vote effort dubbed Souls to the Polls). I f Republicans were trying to rig t he system,they failed spectacularly. Not only did President Barack O bama win Floridas electoral v otes,but the GOP lost seats in the state House and Senate. And they made lots of voters,in both parties, a ngry with the delays. R educing the number of early v oting days from 14 to eight also has been partially blamed for the long lines at polling places inC entral and South Florida. Gov. R ick Scott and Republican lawmakers appear amenable to increasing t he number of early voting days, and legislation has been filed to a ddress another reason for voting d elays an inordinate amount of constitutional amendments (all prop osed by the Legislature) that clogged ballots. T allahassee needs to work with l ocal election officials to fix whats broken and to leave alone what i snt. Senate President Don Gaetz has suggested giving counties more p ower to tailor certain election laws t o their communitiesneeds. ... Thats a good forward-looking a pproach that learns from the past w ithout clinging to it.

Ever since the road has been widened,the school zone signs have not been replaced. You have a speed limit of 45 mph in front of the school and do not start the school zone until you are closer to the high school. It can not be said that because there is a fence around the school that there is not a need for the zone. The high school has a fence around two sides that has zones. Also,if you travel past the high school on Kenilworth Boulevard,you come to a school zone and dont even see a school. My only thought can be, our elementary kids are smarter than the high schoolers and stay off the streets more. I dont think this is the case. There are plenty of children who walk that sidewalk every morning and afternoon with cars going 45 mph. Why isnt there a speed zone there? It doent make sense to me at all. There should be a school zone from Youth Care Lane to the red light at Commerce Avenue. That covers both schools,not just the high school.

Defense attorney Jack Buchanan said he will seek probation for his client,B enjamin Gerard Hawkins, 39,of Gainesville,who has remained free following his November conviction in the death of John Massie,46,ano ccupational safety and health worker at Hill Air Force Base in Utah. Hawkins didnt mean to kill Massie,and the felony conviction ruined his coaching and teaching career at Bradford County High School in Starke,Fla., Buchanan said. Prosecutor Maria Lavell said she will seek a sentence of one to four years in prison. Evidence at trial showed both men had been drinking before the confrontation. Hawkins is black,and Massie was white. H awkins testified that Massie started an encounter in a restroom with an unsolicited comment about black guys and these yellow shirts. Massie derided him with racial comments and tappedh im on the shoulder and chest in the restroom at OSheas C asino in July 2011,then approached him again after they walked separately to the gaming floor,Hawkins told jurors. H awkins said he thought Massie was threatening him. As they emerged from the mens room,security video showed the two men a fewf eet apart before Hawkins began to walk away. Massies hands were in his pockets as Hawkins then turned suddenly and threw the punch. A medical examiner testified that Massie died after his head hit the floor. Hawkins remained in the footage after the punch, apparently talking to his wife and friends before security, paramedics and police arrived. Florida ex-coach facing prison in Vegas casino death

As a result,the lakes in these areas have been acting as catch basins for urban runoff pollution. Over a decade ago,some Lake Placid residents were concerned enough about stormwater flow into Lake Clay to speak up about it. The nutrient levels in the lake were too high and they wanted something to be done to protect this beautiful body of water. As conscientious citizens,they approached Highlands County Lakes Manager Clell Ford and voiced their concerns. By June 2003,the SWFWMD completed the Lake Wales Ridge Lake Screening Project,which was a study of Ridge area lakes to determine which were at risk from stormwater runoff and in need of preservation. Lake Clay came up as one of the five lakes that were identified. The others include McCoy,June,Tulane and Isis. As a result of the study,the SWFWMD deemed the Lake Clay watershed area in need of a stormwater retrofit. Proposed treatment in this area included an exfiltration system for the plaza parking lot,trench drains in the existing drainage easement between Lake Clay Road and Lake Clay as well as other techniques. Pam Fentress was a member of the SWFWMD Governing Board for several years in the early 2000s. She p ushed behind the scenes to get the SWFWMD Lake Wales Ridge Lakes Screening Project done. The screening project was completed by SWFWMD staffers Keith Kolasa and Dr. Patricia Dooris. It led to the best management practices report in 2007. Many agencies joined forces to get the project off the ground. The lead agency was the SWFWMD,which provided 75 percent of the total funding up to $318,364.19. Other agencies that assisted included the Highlands County Board of County Commission with a contribution of $31,250,the Tourist Development Tax Lakes Special Projects fund of $40,000,the Highlands Soil and Water Conservation District with a $10,000 commitment and the Highlands County Infrastructure Surtax of $24,871.40. The county commission also assisted with acquisitions of easements and rights of way.The town of Lake Placid obtained easements from the owner of the Tower Plaza,which is within the laks watershed. The project broke ground in September 2012 and was completed in January 2013. The work was performed by a local firm,Excavation Point, and the managing engineering firm,AMEC,from Lakeland. The project came in $100,000 under budget. The Lake Clay Stormwater Retrofit project would simply not have been completed if private citizens,governmental entities,corporations and other agencies hadnt worked together toward a common goal. Ford said,This proje ct has shown real initiative on the part of the local folks to work with agencies regarding water quality on Lake Clay.The fact that the project came in so far under budget shows how cost conscious the Southwest Florida Water Management District staff are. Debra Worley,Lake Placid town councilperson,said, This project would not be in place if the private sector including corporations and citizens,government,municipalities,special districts, county,water district and state entities had not all worked together to save Lake Clay. The Lake Clay Project is expected to reduce pollutant loadings substantially every year,removing more than 2,700 pounds of total suspended solids,148.2 pounds of total nitrogen,17.5 pounds of total phosphorus,6.1 pounds of lead and 4.9 pounds of zinc from water draining into the lake. Plantings of Ridge native plant species will be used to beautify the area. This vegetation will require little or no irrigation and will be cared for by the contractor for the first year. The Lake Placid Garden Club has reviewed the vegetation plan and is delighted. Once the first year is over,the club will maintain the plants as part of a Nation Garden Club request in part of a Clean Water Project. Thanks to the passion of caring citizens,the efforts of various agencies and funding from several entities,Lake Clay will be preserved for future generations.

C M Y K Last weekend I hooked u p with John Wood, owner of Lorida General Bait and Tackle and professional bass fishing g uide, along with my brother Bill and Sam Wilkins from Jacksonville. John had been doing exceptionally well with a couple of bass fishing trips earlier in the week,f ishing a couple of his honey-holes and I thought it would be a great opportunity for my brother Bill, and our buddy Sam, both residents of Jacksonville, to join us for what we hoped would be a memorable fishing trip. Since wed be going o ut with four guys, we opted to take my Ranger 2400 Bay Boat with a 250 hp Yamaha, a saltwater boat set up perfectly for a larger group and roomy enough for four guys shiner fishing. O n the prior Thursday, John had taken a couple of guys out and they had had a field day! Catching and releasing 49 bass, many in the 4-6 pound range and one almost 8 pounds, John and I were both confident the fish would still be there on Saturday. Meeting up around 7:30 a.m. Saturday, we loaded up the boat with water and soft drinks, sandwiches and ice, while John filled the live well with specially treated water for the precious wild, golden shiners that we knew would be critical to our success. Launching the boat at the State Ramp on Rt. 98,I was surprised to find that there was only one parking spot available in the large parking area. Apparently other fishermen thought this would be an ideal day as well. As we idled out to the north end of the lake, we were greeted with a stiff northeastern wind which grew stronger and stronger as we headed south. Of course, Johns honey hole was on the south end of the lake and with the wind behind us, we were thankful we were in the 24Ranger Bay Boat, and not my smaller 19Ranger Comanche. By the time we arrived at the south end of Lake Istokpoga, white-caps were rolling and as we powered down the big motor, and lowered the Power Pole, we knew it would be a challenge to hold our position. Lowering two more anchors seemed to hold our position, so we baited up and casted out our first shiners. The Power Pole dug in deep and with the waves and wind poundings us, we soon realized, even with the holding power of three anchors, wed never be able to hold our position. Water crashed over the transom of the boat as we elected to move to another one of Johns hot-spots before we were pushed on shore. The second spot produced some action, with By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID History was made yet again Tuesday night as the Lake Placid Lady Dragons accomplished something never before done r eaching the Elite Eight of the State Playoffs. Before a full-house crowd that fed off the action on thec ourt, so too were the ladies pushed by the cheers on their w ay to a resounding, 64-39 win over visiting Tampa C atholic. Long the bane of many H ighlands County teams once playoff time rolls around, the Lady Crusaders brought in an experienced team coming off of deep playoff runs each of the last five years. And with their leading scorer Brittany Betts, who averages over 18 points per game and is signed to play at Rollins College, it looked like Tampa Catholic would be the Dragons toughest test yet. But the 1-0 lead the Crusaders took on a Dominique Eule free throw would be their only lead of the night. Raveen Gobourne soon gave Lake Placid the lead for good when she scooped up a turnover and raced for a fastbreak score. Bria Wilson then powered inside for consecutive buckets before Tampa got another free throw, this from senior Danielle Battle. Alex Coyne then drilled a three-pointer which momentarily amped the crowd up. Betts converted a lay-up off a Dragon turnover, but Gobourne hit a jumper from the wing, and after two free throws from Battle, Coyne flitted in a left-handed floater. With the lead at 13-6 in the waning moments and the home crowd just starting to get into it, Quiahja Williams got a steal and flipped it ahead to Coyne, who then drained a trey just before the buzzer and the Dragons Lair was rocking. The lead continued to grow in the second as Williams got it started with a score on the break. Coyne then got a steal and score before Battle converteda three-point play. Williams then took a slick dish from Coyne for an inside score, though Betts answered with a drive through the lane. But Gobourne answered back and Shaquavia Gayle got out on a break to make it 26-11. Battle got a drive to the hoop to go, but that would be the last score for Tampa in the half. Lake Placid added five more from the free-throw line in the final minute to make it 31-13 at the break. Normally the Dragons are known to try and keep things close in the first half, and ride a second-half burst to take over. But here they stood with an 18-point lead. Theyre a second-half team too, Alex Coyne said. e looked at their stats and saw that they usually come out stronger in the second half, so we really wanted to get up on them early. We did, but we were expecting them to make a run. On her matchup with Betts, who was relatively silent during the first half, Coyne was complimentary. s a really good player SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, February 15, 2013 Page 3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Quiahja Williams is hoisted up in celebration by Bria Wilson after the Lady Dragons trounced Tampa Catholic in the Class 4A Regional Semifinal Tuesday night.

Don Norton Bass Fishing Guide Trip See BASS, Page 3B Special to the News-SunSEBRING Pickleball is the game with the strange name that the majority of people still dont understand. Simply, its like tennis played on a badminton sized court with an oversized ping pong paddle and a net slightly lower than a tennis net. Who plays pickleball? More than 150,000 are now devotees and the number is growing rapidly. Boys and girls, men and women have all taken to the game but it seems to have found its niche with seniors who are tired of exerting themselves on a tennis court but still enjoy friendly, fastpaced competition. How did pickleball come to these parts? Charles Kuehn, who bought a house in Tanglewood in 2005, went back to Virgina in the summer of 2006 and was invited to try a game of indoor pickleball. He tried it, liked it, researched it and returned to Tanglewwood with a fire burning in his belly. He was determined to get the game started in his own community. Not sure how to go about it, he talked to some of the movers and shakers who lead him to the parks owner, John Greytak. After a few meetings with Mr. Greytak, Charles bought $600 worth of equipment, got permission to set up two temporary courts on the outdoor dance floor and within a month of being back in Tangledwood was selling the game to everyone he met by carrying his wooden paddle and whiffle ball with him. Those who took the time to ask got the full story. Soon, Mr. Greytak picked up the tab and a small group of players was meeting three times a week. The game grew in popularTanglewood Pickleball Club Founder Courtesy photo Charles Kuehn, who brought Pickleball to Tanglewood, stands by the courts dedicated in his name. See KUEHN, Page 4B

C M Y K ity and Charles grew bolder in his efforts to add another dimension to Tanglewoods facilities. Another series of meetings convinced Mr. Greytak that permanent courts were needed. Would there be two, three or four courts? The park owner didnt want to build more than would be used, but from his house across the street from the temporary pickleball facility he could see that it was gaining followers quickly. By the spring of 2007, the plans were in place and in the fall, four fully-fenced courts were built. Unfortunately, there was a slight problem with the height of the nets but Charles was able to chase down the contractor before he drove away. The kind fellow returned on that Sunday to make the needed adjustments and the courts opened on Monday. From his first time playing the game to seeing his dream fulfilled took less than 15 months. On March 19, 2008, the courts were named the Kuehn Courts Dedicated to Charles Kuehn, The Founder of Pickleball in Tanglewood. In the early days, eight wooden paddles, part of the original equipment purchase, were used. As players caught onto the game they started to look for lighter paddles which they ordered over the internet. Today, a wide variety of paddles can be seen on the courts; graphite, composite and aluminum. The Tanglewood Pickleball Club now boasts a membership of more than 140 players who compete ina variety of leagues within the park as well as friendly e ncounters where the name of the game is fun. Tanglewood has a very successful travelling team and several players have done well in local and regional tournaments. This summer, we will be represented at the National level by several players. Hats off to Charles Kuehn for making pickleball a reality in Tanglewood and a new passion for many of our active seniors. Build it and they will come. It couldnt be more true than with Tanglewoods pickleball courts. Tanglewood will be holding the South Central Florida Pickleball League shootout on Monday, March 4, at 10:30 a.m. The Heartland Games for Active Adults Pickleball Tournament will also be held at Tanglewood on Friday, March 15 an d Saturday, March 16.

They kept her in the game with three fouls in the first half and she played really smart to still be effective with three f ouls. And it looked like Betts might spark an opening run as she began the third by draining one from downtown. But it was the Dragons who continued their own trend with Gobourne scoring on a put-back and Wilson again getting inside for backto-back scores. Battle would go to the line twice, splitting a pair each time, but then Breauna Corley answered with a deuce down low. Back and forth it went as Betts and Battle helped actually cut into the lead a little bit. B ut while Betts had opened the third with a three, Coyne closed it with one of her own, just before the buzzer again, to send it to the fourth with a seeminglyi nsurmountable 45-26 lead. Again Betts got things started with one from beyond the arc, but after Gayle got o ut on a break, Coyne canned another trey and would at one more, to go with two free throws and a left-handed layin while driving in from the right, as part of her gamehigh 24-point total. The lead soon ballooned to almost 30, at 59-31, before some late Crusader scores provided for the final margin. A nd when the final buzzer sounded, the recently dedicated Malcom Bill Ross Memorial Gym was awash in a deafening roar of celebration as history was made. I cant say enough about o ur community and this crowd here tonight, head coach Jackie Coyne said. They really got the girls excited and as the game was going along, they helped create momentum for us as the girls were just feeding off the excitement. Defense was really the key for us tonight and helped get our offense going, she continued. And we had such big nights rebounding from Raveen, Quiahja and Bria, and everyone came up with key baskets. It was just a fantastic game. Agame that will be remembered in the annals of Lake Placid for years to c ome. But the Lady Dragons have little time to savor the win, as they have a quick turnaround and travel to Ft. Myers to face Dunbar Saturday night. The teams were facing are going to keep getting tougher, Alex Coyne said. But we keep getting better Continued from 1B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE As the final seconds tick off the clock, Alex Coyne lets the ball drop as the crowd begins to erupt in celebration of L ake Placids State Playoff win Tuesday night. LP stuns TC, Dunbar on tap Sam scoring a nice two pounder, followed by 2 1/2 and then a solid 3 pounder. The area John wanted to get into was occupied by another boat, so the choices were pretty limited since all the fishermen seemed to be clustered in one small area trying to get out of the wind. But there were obviously some bass in the area. An hour or so later, Sam hit a big fish and as John reached for the net, we all anticipated seeing a reall unker break water. I nstead, a rabid mudfish thrashed the water and reminded us that there were more than largemouth bass in these waters. I had told John when we planned this trip that Id pretty much be the camera m an and not do much fishing, but with the bite slower than we expected, I found myself baiting up and fighting the wind as I casted some mighty big shiners in the hope of catching a nice bass. For those of you who dont know John Wood, hes a great bass fishing guide. In addition to owning a nd running the Lorida General Bait and Tackle, John is busy throughout the year providing exciting and memorable bass fishing g uide trips as well as organizing and running some of the best tournam ents held in this area. Johns also a pretty r espectable tournament angler, winning many of the t ournaments he enters. As the day wore on, John moved us to a third and finally a fourth spot, hoping to find a good concentration of bass while staying somewhat protected from the wind and waves. We finally settled in on a nondescript area near the Istokpoga Canal. We saw some action right away with Sam putting a couple hefty 3 pounders int he boat followed by Bill a nd then me. P art of the reason for this trip was to find a trophy bass for my brother Bill. Hes been an avid bass fisherman for 40+ years and hasnt nailed a 10 pounder yet, so I was hoping John might be able to p ut him on one. Ive probably fished a good deal more than Bill and Ive been fortunate to catch more than my share of 10+ pound fish, so I wasnt really thinking about hooking into a big female w hen my float, just a few feet from Bills, disappeared from sight. Allowing the bass to run with the bait before you set t he hook is a key factor in getting a good hook set, so I waited, and as I did, I lowered my rod tip and r eeled in any slack line. R earing back, I set the hook and immediately felt the power of a big fish. She dug in, going sidew ays, then towards the boat and digging deep as I frantically reeled in line. She soon broke the surface and my line, providing only a glimpse of what might have been a trophy catch. We all just stared at the o pen water, not believing it all happened so fast. Sam said it was a 10 pounder. John thought it was a g ood fish, maybe 6-8 pounds. My brother Bill thought it might have been another big mudfish. And me I thought it was pretty damn exciting, adding another great memory to my bulging list of theo nes that got away. We ended the day around 3 p.m. with sunburns, some nice bass and sharing some great fish stories. As a bass fishing guide myself, I dont often get a chance to fish with other g uides but this was a first c lass trip. John knows Lake Istokpoga like the back of his hand and if anyone is g oing to put you on the fis h and give you your moneys worth for the trip, it would be John. His calendar is filling up but hes still got some dates open. You can reach him at the store, 863-655-5510, or his cell 863-412-9095 to book a trip. Believe me, youll have a good time and catch some fish. John shared a great story with us as we parted thatd ay. ears ago a fishing g uide booked an older gentleman for a Friday fishing trip and to the fishing guides surprise, he showed up on the Thursday prior tot he trip. The guide asked if hed made a mistake booking the trip for Friday and the old man replied, No, I booked the trip for Friday b ut I figured Id show up early because you always tell me I should have been here yesterday.

Do you recommend this? D.D.,Baltimore,Md. Answer: As a Broncos f an,ll answer your question,albeit reluctantly. Ive never recommended deer antler velvet extract,but its sold at health food stores and online. Deer antler sprayw as thrust into the Super Bowl spotlight with reports a lleging Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis ordered the supplement as as ublingual spray and a pill to help him recover from a torn t ricep injury,but interestingly this supplement is also touted as a male sexual per-f ormance aid. Hang on for more on that. Deer antlers grow incredib ly fast. The dietary supplements (when authentic v est antler velvet from growing deer,moose,elk and c aribou. The antlers are removed from the animal before they form solid bone, and the velvet is removed. It can be painful,and Im wor-r ied that new demand will shortcut proper harvesting techniques. Anyway,after processing,the extract contains calcium,magnesiuma nd zinc as well as glucosamine,chondroitin and collagen,all of which support bone health. This crazy stuff is banned by the NCAA and the NFL (NationalC ollegiate Athletic Association and National F ootball League respectively). Why? Because it contains IGF-1 (insulin-likeg rowth factor 1),a hormone that boosts testosterone. Its t he IGF-1 that is banned,not deer antler. This is a good time to tell you that IGF-1 is a totally natural growth hormone. Itsw hat makes children grow into adults. Its circulating in your blood as we speak,so IGF-1 is not bad,it happens to increase muscle strengtha nd improve muscle recovery while breaking down carbs faster. You can measure IGF-1 with a blood test. As I said,antler velvet tends to mildly increase lev-e ls of your sex hormone testosterone. Is it a substitute f or Viagra? While a little extra Tdoes improve desire and sexual function,Id oubt it will put enough lead in your pencil if your arteri es are truly clogged. You see,erectile dysfunction is often a sign of coronary artery disease,so to mask it with a supplement ord rug that gets your motor started doesnt make sense to me. Id rather you unclog the pipelines to get your blood flowing down south (and toy our heart) but thats a different column altogether. As for women,deer antler velvet supplements may increase estrogen levels. If youre low in estrogen andn eed it for menopausal concerns,I guess you could ask y our doctor about this supplement,but what if you are normal or high? Thats am ajor problem. These supplements contain estrogen c ompounds so it could worsen any kind of hormone-sensitive condition such as uterine fibroids or cancer,ovarian cancer,cervical problems,e ndometriosis,fibrocystic breast disease or breast cancer. While it all sounds impressive,I simply cantf ind solid studies to recommend it. Does deer antler velvet work?

This information is not intended to treat, diagnose or cure your condition. Pregnancy and your feetO ut of sight is not out of mind for a mom-to-be and h er feet. Even though you may not be able to see your feet anymore,you canti gnore them. Pregnancy triggers many different changes and complaints in a womans b ody. Two of the most common foot problems are e dema (swelling in the feet and over-pronation. These problems can lead to pain at the heel,arch,or the ball-offoot. Many women may alsoe xperience leg cramping and varicose veins due to weight gain. Factors that cause foot pain and edema include changes in your center of gravity,weight gain and hor-m ones. The pregnancy hormones relaxin and progest erone,relax ligaments for childbirth,and also loosen foot and hip ligaments. Edema normally occurs in the latter part of pregnancy.T he enlarging uterus puts pressure on the blood vessels in the pelvis and legs causing circulation to slow down and blood to pool in the legs. O ver-pronation,which is caused when a persons arch flattens out upon weight bearing,can cause the feet to turn in abnormally.The dense band of tissue in the arch of the foot called the plantar fascia becomes strained and inflamed due to increased flattening of the f eet. Orthotics/shoe inserts, s upport stockings and massage can help mild swelling in the feet,but heavy swelling can be a serious matter. In some cases,s wollen feet can signal preeclampsia,pregnancyinduced high blood pressure. Call your OBGYN if you have severe swelling in your feet,face or hands,sudden weight gain,vision changeso r headaches. Follow these remedies to e ase foot pain during pregnancy: Take short breaks during the day and elevate your feet to heart level to relieve pres-s ure and swelling. If you have to sit for long periods of time,place a small stool by your feet to elevate them. Wiggle your ankles and feeta s much as you can. Drink plenty of water. Cutting back won't diminish swelling. Your body and your baby needs at least eight 8-ounce glasses a day, as this helps rid your body of toxins. Avoid foods high in salt that can cause water retention. Have your feet measured s everal times throughout your pregnancy.They will probably change sizes. Wear shoes that are soft, comfortable and give your f eet room to move. Pack away the stiletto pumps and platform heels until aftery our baby comes. Get a nice pair of tie-on walking or cross-training shoes that p rovide extra support and shock absorption. Avoid thin f lip-flop or slip-on shoes because they dont give enough support. Wear seamless socks that do not constrict circulation. Exercise or walk regularly to promote overall health. Stretch legs frequently and avoid crossing your legs when sitting. Ask your loved one to rub your feet itsh is baby,too. Try rolling your arches on a rolling pin, i f nobody is around and you cant reach your feet. Pregnancy and pending motherhood should be a joyful experience. If foot painc ontinues,your podiatrist will find the best treatments for you. Remember that babying your tootsiesnow will benefit your legs,backa nd whole body. Congratulations on your little bundle of joy.

Out of sight, but not out of mind Footprints Olga Luepschen HEALTHSNAPSHOTS By LINDSEY TANNER AP Medical WriterC HICAGO The most comprehensive study of potential World Trade Center-related cancers raises more questions than ita nswers and wont end a debate over whether the attacks were really a cause. T he study suggests possible links with prostate,thyroid and a type of blood cancer among rescue and recovery workers e xposed to toxic debris from the terrorist attacks. But there were few total cancers and even the study leaders say the results should be interpreted with caution. The study involved nearly 56,000 people e nrolled in a registry set up to monitor health effects from those exposed to the aftermath of the trade center attacks. Most participants volunteered for enrollment, which could skew the results if people whoa lready had symptoms were more likely to enroll than healthier people. C ancers diagnosed through 2008 were included in the study,but thats just seveny ears after the 2001 attacks,and cancer often takes longer to develop. People diagnosed with cancer before the attacks were excluded from the study. Cancer rates were compared with those in t he general New York state population. But the researchers had no data on whether people in the study had risk factors for getting cancer,including a strong family history,or if they had existing cancer that wasntd etected until after the disaster. Participants are being monitored for health issues and may have gotten more cancer screening than other people,which also could skew the results. The increased risks were seen only in rescue and recovery workers,who likely had more direct,sustained contact with potential cancer-causing substances in the dust, smoke and debris from the attacks. But cancers werent more common in workers who had the most exposure a finding that would seem to contradict the theory that contact was the cause. The study comes just a few months after the federal government added dozens of t ypes of cancer to a list of illnesses related to the trade center attacks that will be cove red by a program to pay for health coverage. The study results wont settle the quest ion because its still too early,said Dr. Thomas Farley,NewYork Citys health c ommissioner. People are very,very interested in this topic and we thought it was important to get the data out that we have e ven though it is early. Marijo Russell OGrady,dean of students at Pace Universitys New York City campus, was at her office near the trade center during the attacks. She also lives nearby,ands aid she worries about how exposure to choking dust,ash and an overwhelming burnt plastic smellmight affect her family, including her then 1 1/2 year-old son. They are all enrolled in the health registry. C ancer is her greatest concern and its always present in the back of my mind, s he said. Researchers from the citys health departm ent led the study,which was partly paid for by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health. NIOSH spokesman Fred Blosser said the agency welcomes the results and that longer follow-u p is needed to examine risks for cancers with that take a long time to develop. The study appears in Wednesdays Journal of the American Medical Association. E arlier research from the same registry linked the attacks with respiratory problems including asthma and symptoms of posttraumatic stress. The new study involved a broader array of people,including firefighters and other emergency workers,along with residents and employees of workplaces near ground zero,Farley said. In the new study,possible links were mainly seen with cancers diagnosed in 2007 and 2008 in rescue and recovery workers. These included 67 cases of prostate cancer, 13 thyroid cancer cases,and seven cases of multiple myeloma all at rates higher than in the New York state population. 9/11 cancer study wont settle debate over risks

C M Y K The true story is told of a n airline passenger flying from San Francisco to Los A ngeles. By the time the airplane finally took off, there had already been a 45-m inute delay,and most everybody on board was a b it upset. Unexpectedly, the plane stopped in Sacramento on the way toi ts final destination. The flight attendant explained that there would be another 4 5-minute delay,and if anyone wanted to get off the a ircraft,they would all reboard in 30 minutes. Everyone got off the plane ... everyone,that is,except one gentleman who wasb lind. The passenger had noticed the blind man earlier and could tell he had flown before,because his seeing-eye dog sat quietly underneath the seats in fronto f him throughout the entire flight. The passenger could a lso tell the blind man had flown on that very flight before,because the pilot approached him and,calling him by name,said,ayne,w re in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?Wayne replied, No,thanks,but maybe myd og would like to stretch his legs. Now I want you to picture the following:All the people in the gate area came to an absolute standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with a seeing-eye dog. Adding to the problem, the pilot happened to be wearing dark sunglasses at the time. Passengers scattered. They not only tried to change planes,they also tried to change airlines. That story reminds me of a basic,biblical teaching. When a person boards an airplane,he relies on the pilot to get him where he is going. When a blind person uses a seeing-eye dog,he r elies on the animal to get him where he is going. The s ame is true of our spiritual journey. If a person wants to go to Heaven,on whom must he rely to get him there? J eremiah 10:23 reads, know,O LORD,that a mans way is not in himself, nor is it in a man who w alks to direct his steps. The Old Testament prophet, J eremiah,was stating a simple truth that is true for all people everywhere. Anyones eeking eternal life must allow the Lord to show Him t he way,because no one will ever get to Heaven on his or her own. O ver the years I have noticed the following bumper sticker:God is my c o-pilot. I have the feeling that many people want God t o their co-pilot. There is only one problem with this plan. God cannot and must not be anyones co-pilot. Rather,God must be thep ilot! In other words,do not tell God where you want to go. Instead,let God tell you where He wants y ou to go. The destination will always be better if you d o. So,spiritually speaking, who is your pilot? Whol eads your way? Who directs your steps? It is my p rayer that each one of you come to rely on the Lord to guide you through the trou-b les of this life. In so doing, you will ultimately arrive at your final destination of e ternal life with Him one fine day.

Woe to those who call evil good,and good evil;w ho put darkness for light, and light for darkness,who p ut bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.(Isaiah 5:20) Sexual perversion in any form has always been con-t rary to the plan of our Creator. Almighty God condemned such acts as in Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19L aw of Moses. Included in His laws given through Moses (Leviticus 18:20-29) such acts were an abomination. Sexual perversion was also condemned under the law of Christ,the gospel,as works of the flesh clearly outlined in Galatians 5:1921. Why? Gods plan for sexual relations from the beginning was between a man and a woman (male and female) within the bonds of marriage,a holy institution. (Genesis 2:23-25 Homosexual/lesbian conduct is still an act against nature,a sin and a choice. So,as in the days of Isaiah,so it is today. Hollywood,liberal media, courts and government are pushing relentlessly this evil as good,light,sweet and our anti-god society is accepting this sales pitch hook,line and sinker. According to various sources,50 percent of Americans now accept homosexuality as a normal l ifestyle. Woe to those who call evil good Gay rights activists will use any means to support their agenda. It appears that our society a nd nation are oblivious to the following unchangeable law:Do not be deceived. God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows,thath e will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption,but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life(Galatians 6:7,8We respect this law when planting crops/gardens but we want a crop failurewhen planting the seed of immorality. Sorry,this law does not have an of switch. What can we do who respect the sanctity of marriage as ordained by the great I am? First,of course, is to make sure our marriages are guided by the Divine marriage manual,the eternal Word Bible. We must teach our children/grandchildren those Divine values of marriage and help them realize that not everyone will honor those values,i.e. gays/homosexuals and those who live in fornication or an adulterous relationship. Jesus loves these precious souls (John 3:16),but not their sins. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to allm en.(Titus 2:11) Public school teachers who hold t hese sacred values must not compromise the Truth. And, of course,The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much(James5 :16). This is more than a social or political issue,but rather an issue dealing with eternity. Do you not know thatt he unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators,nor idolaters, nor adulterers,nor homosexuals,nor sodomites,nor thieves,nor covetous,nor drunkards,nor revilers,nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed,but you were santified,but you were justified in the name of Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God(1 Corinthians 6:911 emphasis added). This stand for Truth is in sharp contrast to the sectarian and denominational tolerance today towards sexual perversions. Thanks be to God for the power of the gospel (Romans 1:16,17 that can and will change lives and such were some of you. Frank Parker can be reached at frankparker27@gmail.com. Morality Biblical perspective Guest column Frank Parker Special to the News-SunS EBRING When the Vandenberg family rolls into town in their 45-foot Prevost coach,the comparisons to the PartridgeF amily might seem obvious.

Lloyd and Cathy along with four of their six chil-d ren Garrett,Elise, Kirsten,and Evan are New Generation,appearingT uesday through Thursday evenings at the 6:30 services a t The Salvation Army,120 N. Ridgewood Drive. The message,spun from L loyds own admission that he was addicted to pornogr aphy,is one of freedom from whatever is holding people captive. I know what its like to be in church and be boundu p,he said in a telephone interview this week. His s tory may seem particularly startling,but Lloyd says people with any type ofa ddiction seek freedom. Its not just porn or drugs or a lcohol he adds,its any type of hang-up that makes one feel bound. I t will be a powerful and hard-hitting story,but told in a way thats appropriate for a family audience,promised Lloyd. Theres a greatd eal of humor and the groups cover-versions of contemporary Christian songs set the stage. Criss-crossing North A merica to tell that story is the familys full-time job. Before that,Lloyd and C athy were part of another generation,traveling for 20 years with her parents as part of the Phillips Family.

M any friendships begin and end inside a few days, he says,and the rules ared ifferent at every place they perform. You have to have t he heart of a dove and the skin of rhinoceros,to adapt to the constant change of s cenery says Lloyd. Even little Elise has learned to take it all in stride. When we have to get up to sing, says Lloyd,whoever shess itting next to is whos taking care of her. The payoff for the entire family,says Lloyd,is seeing people leave with a sense ofr elease.

C M Y K By LEANNE ITALIE A ssociated PressNEW YORK Nancy Zwiers was genuinely psyched to see Lincoln,but something happened betweent he ticket purchase and the credits. Off screen,that is. es,I fell asleep,confessed the 54-year-old marketing executive in Long Beach,Calif. I only have two clear memories of the movie:a bunch of old white guys sitting around talking and Sally Field in a perpetual state of angst. That was shortly after its release in October. Fast forward to January and a dozen Academy Award nominations for the 150-minute epic and another accolade has emerged:nap worthy,with and without apologies from t he snoozy to Steven Spielberg and Daniel DayLewis. Movie napping is almost certainly as old as cinemai tself. It strikes the overtired and the well-rested,film nuts and occasional theatergoers. Some blame it on soporific popcorn. Others on the enveloping darkness and a comfy seat. The theater is too hot. The theater is too cold, too crowded,not crowded enough ... Any which way,cinematic snoozing seems near epidemic proportions this awards season with buzz plus ZZZs for Lincoln,the 157minute sung Les Miserables,the 169-minute The Hobbit:An Unexpected Journeand others cited as g ood for a snore,but not always due to extra minutes. Forget the theory that movie watchers of a certain age are more heavily afflict-e d. I dont realize I do it and I wake up 20 minutes later and then everyones,like, you were asleep,said Rose Liu,31,a program manager for a Los Angeles nonprofit. I snore and then its embarrassing,but I really cant control it. I wake up and Im re-energized! Liu has movie dozed on dates and out with friends, some of whom have nudged her awake at the request of strangers sitting nearby. She,too,was done-in by Lincoln.Shes not a fan, but she also caught some shuteye during the two-hour Argo,which she liked. A power napper in regular life and a moviegoer about once a month,Liu acknowledged it would make sense to avoid late screenings,but thats usually not possible. Lay watchers arent alone. Professional movie-watchers fall victim,too. One entertainment writer, who asked for obvious reasons that his name not be used,once fell asleep at an intimate screening for the 1994 satire Pret-a-Porter, sitting right next to the director,Robert Altman. And not just a few winks but a 45minute power nap about 10 minutes in. I dont think he noticed, the writer laughed. Count psychologist Jennifer Thomas,43,in Greensboro,N.C.,as a nap person outside of theaters and in. With four kids at home,she watches a lot on Netflix but gets out to the theater about once every three months. Thomas decided to take in Life of Piin 3D on the reco mmendation of friends who enjoyed the book. In a rare moment of parenthood, Thomas was alone in the dark,in a cushy seat. It was somewhere with the boat and the water and the lion,and they had settled into the story,and I just had this feeling that,Im just going to listen to the movie for a while and Im just going to close my eyes,she recalled of her 15-minute break from the largely symbolic action. The last movie nap for Thomas before that was Platoon,of all things. I slept right through the last half of that movie and I was in high school,she laughed. Who among us hasnt been there,at least once? Collin Roberts of Manhattan has seen four of the nine films nominated fora best picture Oscar:Argo, Beasts of the Southern Wild,Life of Piand Lincoln,the latter definitely not her thing but a favor to her husband. The soliloquies started. That was something I didnt know about Lincoln,his tendency to give long-winded speeches at inappropriate times. The elderly lady next to me fell asleep and started snoring softly and before I knew it,I was nodding off, too,she said. Entertainment Weekly has dubbed this the most thrilling race for Oscar in years,but the length of some contenders has earned attention. Over at Saturday Night Live,a recent skit suggests the next two Hobbitmovies morph into 18 instead, including The Elf Queen Tries to Pick an Outfit. In real life,Travers liked parts of the Lord of the Rings prequel but hated the whole 48 frames a second thing. Dear Abby: Please use yourw ide reach to educate wellmeaningp arents about how their children shouldb ehave when visiting cemeteries. Im a funeral professional who takesp ride in helping families honor their heritage and t ransition from grief to recovery. I especially enjoy helping to allay chil-d rens fears about death and cemeteries. O ften parents allow their children to roam the cemetery as if it were a playground or public park. I have seen kids pull upe xpensive flowers on other graves and take them to M ommy.Naturally,the family who bought the flowers come back a fewd ays later and accuses us of trashing them. I have seen mourners leave precious personal mementos on their loved o nesgraves only for kids to take them as playthings. I have seen kids deface grave markers,entertain themselves by bouncingr ocks off headstones or open up brass and bronze cameos,exposing the photos to the elements. The worst is unsuperv ised kids running off in packs and gathering up the l ittle colored flags that are placed to assure a graveg ets dug and set up in time for a pending service. Imagine flying in for the burial of a loved one and the grave isnt readyb ecause some child grabbed the marking flag while the parents stood idly by. Cemetery employees have been fired fort his. Parents,please teach your children that their natural curiosity and playfulness should find their outlet in more appropriate settings. And please,keep your dogs at home. You wouldnt want a strangers dog doing his business on your expensive marker or loved ones grave,would you? The Last Person to Let You Down in California Dear Last Person to Let You Down: Im happy to spread the word. Folks,if your children are too young to understand when you tell them the cemetery isnt a playground,that they must remain quiet,respectful and not touch other peoples property,then they should not be present at the burial. When entering or leaving the cemetery,children and adults shouldr efrain from walking on the graves. Ditto for using it as a dog park. The Golden Rule applies here:Dont do unto othersw hat you wouldnt want them to do onto you. D ear Abby: When I married,I moved away to another state and mades ome great new friends where I live now. My famil y visits every few months and I recently started including some of myf riends in my family gatherings and bringing some o f them home with me when my husband and I go to visit. I recently found out that my family has been invit-i ng my friends for weekend getaways and camping t rips. They even invited my friends to spend the last long holiday weekend witht hem without inviting me. I was hurt and offended when I found out. I have nothing against my family a nd friends getting along, but I always thought Id be included. Am I overreacting? Excluded in Rochester,N.Y. D ear Excluded: Perhaps. Not knowing your friends or family members,I can only guess that when you introduced them theym ay have found some interest in common that y ou dont necessarily share. But dont waste timeo n hurt feelings or pouting because you don't own your friends,and what your relatives choose to do with their time is out of yourc ontrol.

Thats the only way to explain the ridiculously over-the-top,repetitivelyn umbing fifth film in the Die Hardfranchise,the clunkily titled A Good Day to Die Hard. John McClane used to be a cowboy. Now,hes a cartoon character specifically,Wile E. Coyote,given how many times he should be seriously injured and/or killed in this movie. Hess hot at,involved in several serious car accidents,crashe s through glass windows and ceilings and plummets through floor after floor ofh igh-rise scaffolding. The most he suffers is a scratch h ere and there,and then hes ready to pop back up again with a bemused twinkle in his eye and a wry quip. Part of the charm of this c haracter,which was crucial in defining Bruce Willis c areer,was the regular-guy, Reagan-era resourcefulness he represented; now,hesw eirdly superhuman. But as charismatic as Willis ordin arily is in the role,even he cant fool us into thinking hes actually enjoying him-s elf this time. Essentially, this is an opportunity for Willis to show off how great h e still looks in a tight Tshirt at age 57; even the o bligatory yippee-ki-yay line feels phoned in. A Good Day to Die Hardis pointless and joyless,a barrage of noise andc haos,an onslaught of destruction without the slightest mention of consequence. Dozens of people should be dead from one lengthy car chase alone; Die Hardkeeps on driving. Director John Moore ( Behind Enemy Lines. Max Payne) mistakes shaky-cam and dizzying zooms for artistic finesse in his action sequences. This isa film that has not one but two scenes in which helicopters just sit there,hovering in the sky,firing countless high-powered rounds into buildings. B ut the most obnoxious element of all in Skip Woods a nd Jason Kellers script may be the hastily wedgedin father-son feel-goodery that occurs in the midst of all this madness. You see,W illisunstoppable New York cop has traveled to M oscow to track down his bitter,estranged son,Jack (Jai Courtney),whom heb elieves to be in some sort of criminal trouble. It turns o ut Jack is actually a spy working undercover to protect a government whistle-b lower named Komarov (Sebastian Koch),and dad has arrived just in time to r uin his mission. So now the two McClanes m ust team up to keep Komarov from being kidnapped by generically menacing Russian bad guys; Komaros heavily lipstickedd aughter,Irina (Yuliya Snigir),is also involved somehow,with wavering alliances. They all want Komarov to lead them to a hidden file it sounds so C old War,it may as well have been microfilm but o f course the file is the MacGuffin. It probably isnt even really a file. McClane picks up whatever weapon is nearby ands olves every problem that comes their way but he also f inds time to nag his son for calling him Johninstead of dad.Whether this isi ntended as comic relief in the heat of the moment or g enuine sentiment,it clangs and feels too cute. McClane also repeatedly laments Imo n vacation!just as things are about to get hairy.Wd all be better off if Willis t ook a vacation from this character for good.
