C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY email@example.comSEBRING When Richard Beeler was 28 years old he broke his neck. He wont say what exactly happened beyond,I was pretty frisky back then. The injury left him a quadriplegic that is,his spinal cord injury affected all four of his limbs. He cannot move his legs or turn his head. His hands dont close and he can only raise his arms a couple of inches. Now 70,he has spent the 42 years since the accident confined to his wheelchair. This does not mean,however, his life has been confined. In fact,he is fulfilled,content and makes a difference in this world. Odd to hear,but in many ways Beeler is grateful. ery few quads live to be 70, he said and smiled,adding, take no blood pressure medicine. Eighty percent is your outlook.Faith has a lot to do with it. I believe prayer makes a big difference. Talking to the Man upstairs. He cant fix problems,but Hell show you how to work your way through them. Ive been much worse,but brought myself back. Beeler,who was in the auto body business before breaking his neck,survived childhood polio and its paralysis to play football in high school. Beeler smiled,saying after polio and the accident he became positive God meant him to live life in a wheelchair. ve had such a feeling it was meant to happen. That this was Gods calling for me. For myself, its been a good life. In 1990,his life took a dramatic turn Congress passed the American Disabilities Act. Beeler became active,first as a volunteer,later as executive director of the Center for Independent Living in Fort Myers. The center is a place for those with spinal injuries to gather for seminars in the latest advances,therapy,talking one-on-one with doctors,and connecting with the network of social services. Because of the Disabilities Act, Beeler became a powerful and creative advocate in the movement to raise awareness and insure public access for the handicapped. For example,Beeler talked the Cape Coral mayor to have city hall staff work one day exclusively in manual wheelchairs Beeler providing the chairs. That day helped raise awareness,and Cape Coral is now highly handicapped accessible and a model to other communities.

Splitting his time between Tallahassee and Highlands County has become a regular task fort he 55th District Representative but come this summer that six-hour drive will be on hold for a while. Pigman will spend his summer months in another sunny,warm regiono f the world when he heads out for his third deployment since joining the Army Reserves in 2010. About three weeks ago they (Army they needed me, Pigman explained. There like your wife. When they call you asking for your help,the answer is always yes. Though Pigman is becoming more comfortable in his legislative role in Tallahassee,the physician is more than comfortable in his medical role,even with the duties he is sometimes ordered to fulfill. The upcoming deployment to Kuwait isnt something Pigman was expecting,but he always remains prepared for these types of happenings. They like ER doctors. We come, we get plugged in with a unit and we work. Its a little bit different than a traditional hospital job. There is a lot more trauma. The patients are younger but it is still the same work. I wont say that it is an easy job,but its the same job. Different uniform,Pigman said. The Army wanted Pigman to ship out as soon as possible,but Pigman had to explain his situation here in Florida with the Army regarding his newly earned legislative duties.

C M Y K I was filled with pride during my entire phone conversation with Cpl. Kyle Carpenter. As an American citizen,it makes me enormously thankful that this 23-y ear-old Marine,who is being considered for the M edal of Honor,is willing to sacrifice so much for others. Few have the courage to do what fellow Marines saidC pl. Carpenter did on Nov. 21,2010,in Marjah, Afghanistan. When a grenade landed on the roof of a compound he was help-i ng fortify,squad members said he dove on top of the explosive device to shield a fellow Marine. The grenade went off, and I woke up a month later,Carpenter told The Unknown Soldiers. The next thing I really remember is seeing Christmas stockings on the wall. Carpenter said he has no recollection of jumping on top of the grenade. But the Gilbert,S.C.,Marine does recall the harrowing events leading up to the day he lost his right eye. Just imagine what its like walking through mud and it being hard to lift your feet out,even if you dont have anything on your back, Carpenter said. On most of my patrols,I would carry 800 rounds on my back a lot of weight and the weather is well over 100 degrees. Carpenter is not seeking accolades or sympathy. He wants Americans to understand what thousands of U.S. troops still stationed in Afghanistan often go through. I didnt have a shower for three months,he said. On Nov. 20,Carpenter and his 2nd Battalion,9th Marine Regiment brothers in arms knew a confrontation with the Taliban was at hand. Carpenters squad was ordered to transform a local home into an American compound,deep in the heart of a terrorist stronghold. It wasnt a matter of I wonder if were going to get at shot at today? Carpenter said. It was a matter of when was it going to start? After trudging through a canal full of mud and sewage,carrying their weapons above their heads while sinking into the sludge beneath their feet,the Marines started building the makeshift U.S. base. As we were digging,we heard an extremely loud explosion,the Medal of Honor nominee said. I turned around and another loud explosion went off in the same area. Carpenter was shocked when he realized Taliban fighters were lobbing grenades,which were not the enemys weapons of choice. e had never seen or heard grenades throughout our entire deployment, Carpenter said. Needless to say,we were in disbelief. Carpenter said at least two Marines were injured in the attack,which included enemy sniper fire. Once night fell,however,they resumed digging and stacki ng sandbags before a Taliban rocket tore into the roof,which partially collapsed. That was pretty much the e nd of Nov. 20,Carpenter said. After grabbing a few hours of sleep,the young Marine awoke to a familiar sound. Like many mornings in Afghanistan,our alarm clock was AK-47 small arms fire,he said. Carpenter and a fellow Marine were repairing the damaged roof when the fateful grenade landed nearby. Both young men were badly injured in the blast,which squad members said would have been deadly if it werent for Carpenters heroism. Everything is a blur because of the medication, he said. It really was abouta year before I started to have fluid memories. As a Walter Reed patient in Bethesda,Md.,Carpenter is still adjusting to missing an eye,wearing artificial teeth,and enduring countless surgeries to repair his jaw. His ears ring constantly,and nerve damage in his arms makes it difficult to button his shirt. But instead of wallowing in pain,Carpenter uses his story to inspire others. The best thing thats come out of it is the impact ve had on other people,he said. If Cpl. Kyle Carpenter is ultimately awarded the nations highest military honor by President Barack Obama,the young Marine plans to use an increased platform to motivate veterans and fellow wounded warriors. I will never stop helping people that need to be helped or trying to make a positive impact on peoples lives,Carpenter said. I f this volunteer warriors words dont leave you cons umed with pride,I dont know what will.

PB:Power Ball Lottery Center By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY firstname.lastname@example.orgVENUS A wildfire across from the old posto ffice was called in at about 2 p.m. Tuesday. Melissa Yunas,wildfire mitigation specialist with the Florida Forest Service,saidt he fire grew from 50 acres to about 80 acres in an hour and a half,ultimately affecting 325 acres of palmetto and pine. It was contained by6 :30 p.m. No people were affected by the fire,and although oneu noccupied house was threatened,firefighters saved it. The challenges,Yunas s aid,included the wind and the dryness of the vegetation. This is an area that typically holds water,but is dried up. Dry ponds still haves quishy bottoms. The heavy dozers could n ot cross the unstable surfaces and firefighters had to work around them. Thirty-six loads of water, each delivering 360 gallons for a total of almost 13,000 gallons of water w ere dropped on the fire. By the time it was 100 percent contained,five dozers,t wo engines,one fixed wing aircraft and one Super Huey h elicopter were on the scene. Yunas warns that containment does not mean the fire i s controlled or extinguished. State Wildland Firefighters began the mopup on Tuesday night and Wednesday,Yunas said. That involves using enginest o wet down hot spots or burning trees,and making wider control lines. Concerns for the site persist. High winds could easi-l y rekindle the fire,Yunas said. The wind could move hot ash into unburned dry fuel. The investigation into the o rigin of the blaze has only begun. Those answers will take more time to find. I n the meantime,the Florida Forest Service wants homeowners and campers tor emember that spring is one of the most dangerous times o f the year when it comes to the threat of wildfires. Between the dry winter s eason,cold temperatures and high winds,natural veget ation is tinder waiting to combust. This is why homeowners are strongly urged to keep trees and shrubs well irrigat-e d within 30 feet of the house. It is safer to keep the w oods and underbrush 30 feet from all buildings. Maintaining the yard; raki ng dead leaves; pruning back dead wood; keeping gutters; p atios or decks debris free; keeping boats,propane tanks or wood piles away from b uildings adds greatly to safety. So does keeping a t hreeto five-foot space around all buildings fuel free, n othing that can allow fire to reach the building. The house roof is the most v ulnerable spot for firebrands that blow in and collect. F irefighters advise homeowners to invest in large numbers and letters to clearlym ark their address for a quicker response. Yunas reminds drivers that w here there is fire,there is u ltimately smoke,whether from a wildfire or prescribed b urn. Visibility on roadways is seriously impaired. Slow down and turn on your lowb eam lights. If the smoke becomes too thick to see p roperly,put on your hazard lights and pull well off the road. F inally,nine out of 10 wildfires are started by humans. Please be careful. 325 acre wildfire flares quickly Photo courtesy of Forest Area Supervisor Joe deBree Forest rangers Alton Padgett and Tony Currella mop up Tuesday evening after a 100-plus acre wildfire in Venus. They use water from an engine to extinguish a few hot spots.

C M Y K B y SAMANTHA GHOLAR email@example.comSEBRING Though varied opinions were revealed regarding the issue of SolidW aste during the Sebring City Councils first monthly meeting Tuesday evening, the councils majority won the vote to reject bids citya dministrator had received from hopeful vendors. Prior to Tuesdays meeting,the Solid Waste Committee (which com-p osed of workers as well as members of the council) met to discuss the commer-c ial rates for city businesses. Council member Andrew F ells had already shown a distaste for the bids prior to b oth meetings and stated that the bids should not be taken. Council PresidentJ ohn Griffin was put off by Fellssuggestion and felt s omething needed to be done quickly to solve the problem. My opinion is that weve been doing better than wew ere 10 years ago. If were going to raise the rates for c ommercial,the private sector will make more money ... we tried that before andt he council rejected it, G riffin stated. Still,Fells felt that the citys 138 commercial accounts,if rates are raised, could provide additionalr evenue to the city. The issue,however,was not so much the idea of raising the rates for those accounts but what to doa bout the less than successful Request For Proposal procedure. I think there is some selective memory going onh ere,councilman John Clark said. Looking at the $1.6 million for capital pur-c hases just for trucks,I thought our RFP was really well done. We took a buncho f ideas from other communities and somehow we still s crewed it up. If we can,we should be a little more clear in our specifications thist ime. Griffin stood firmly on his o bjecting opinion. These guys are going to manipulate the numbers so they can make a profit. We are wasting our time; itsg oing to be another five or six months down the road ... T here going to charge our business accounts more money,but if youre OK w ith that then ...,Griffin said. During the Solid Waste Committee meeting,a recommendation was made tor escind the recommendation to award the contract to WCA Waste Corporation. The recommendation was also made to reject all theb ids that werent useful to the city. Councilmen Scott Stanley also agreed that more concise direction was neededd uring the bidding process. I would support bidding again with clearer direction.A t this point,we dont have the proper information though,Stanley said. F ells made a motion to reject,rescind and rebid for t he solid waste commercial rates and services following further research and analysiso f other communities and cities. Griffin also made n ote that the city procedures could still change when the county makes its next move with its solid waste and recycling plans. T he motion was passed 32 with council members J ohn Griffin and Bud Whitlock casting the dissenting votes. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, March 8, 2013Page A3 GLADES ELECTRIC; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; annual meeting main; 00027938 M ARTIAL ARTS (pp care rhr top only; 00027966 c an cross every street and get into every building, B eeler said. Beeler inspected public buildings for access under the Disabilities Act. He often found inaccessib le bathrooms,or doors with round knobs impossible to o pen. The situation has improved drastically since1 992 for people in wheelchairs,Beeler said. Sebring, h e added,is ahead of some larger cities. They make a real effort,despite the older b uildings. The Sebring Chamber of Commerce has bent over backwards for us,and the county made changes in then ew government building after it was built,he added. It took a lot of pushing to get things done,Beeler said. The biggest citiess tarted first. The point was to enable those compensati ng for disabilities to live on their own. B eeler sits absolutely still in his wheelchair,an automated unit operated with a lever. An observer notices only over time how unnatu-r al his stillness is. His face,however,is lively. He has a radiant smile, twinkling eyes,and scowls with the best of them.

H e also asks everyone to remember the number ofw ounded veterans coming home from combat,many of whom are dealing with handicaps,either temporarily or for the rest of their lives.

C M Y K The name is RalphEditor: Im 47 years old and I was b orn with a learning disability. It is an intellectual disability that makes it difficult for me to learn. Over the years,people have made fun of me because of myd isability.When this happens,it often includes the use of the Rword. I am a slow learner and people in school and at work have toldm e that I need to be faster. I have problems with my reading. I dont like to hear the word mental retardation. It actuallyu psets me a little bit. As I get older,ve learned to blow it off but it still gets under my skin that people use the R-word. I have heard people make fun of severalo f my friends who have disabilities as well and it bothers me. I have worked in the maintenance department at South Florida State College for 23y ears; served as a volunteer firefighter at West Sebring Volunteer Fire Department for 21 years; served in leadership roles on many boards in our community including the Ridge Area Arc Board of Directors,Aktion Club and Special STARS; own my own home in Sebring; and pay my share of taxes in this state,so I deserve to be treated with respect like everyone else. That includes calling me by my real name, Ralph Meyers,and not referring to me as retarded. This year,The Arc of Florida is working to pass a law that would replace the words mental retardationwith intellectual disabilityin state laws. Thats what doctors call my disability. The Federal Government and 39 states have passed similar bills. Im supporting Senate Bill 142, the Intellectual Disabilities Bill, and hope others will too. Please help us end the R-word in Florida.

Nancy Hotchkiss Family Avon ParkSMS helps YMCAEditor: The Highlands County Family YMCA would like to give a special thank you to Sebring Middle School for the use of their facilities for several Y events this past winter. The YMCAs youth basketball league as well as our recent Christian Concert took place there. The help and support of organizations and schools in Highlands County like Sebring Middle School allow us to continue impacting our local community. Highlands County Family YMCAMeinholtz a welcome addition to AdelinesEditor: I attended the Heart of Highlands Sweet Adelines show chorus a few weeks ago with four other ladies at the Union Millennium Church in Avon Park. All I can say is if you missed their performance of On The Road Again,you missed a great show. The girls have a new barber shop director. Her name is Betty Meinholtz,who comes from a long background of Barbershop exposure within her own family. She had served on the International Womens Barbershop faculty from 19681983. She now coaches the Heart of Highlands chorus. They all love her and she brings out the best of their harmonizing talents. The theme of the show,On The Road Again,had two huge TV screens that depicted all the states,and the girls sang a tribute to them all. The singing,the costumes and the performance was wonderful and the afternoon seemed to just fly by. When the girls did take their break,we enjoyed the quartet group known as Live Out Loud, which placed 15th in the Sweet Adelines International competition throughout the United States. They were outstanding and will be competing in Denver this year. If you see or hear that our Heart of Highlands Sweet Adeline Chorus is performing,you wont want to miss purchasing a ticket because our local group of women put on a great show. Barbara Kelleher Lake Placid The spot is perfect for a beautiful entrance into Sebring onL akeview Drive what is more welcoming than a park? Wre not as thrilled about the scrolling electronic sign advertising Sebring events that is proposed fort he park. Yes,there is an advantage in letting people know about what is ono ffer in the city. We understand the benefit of getting the word out. But why in Centennial Park? W hat does modern technology have to do in a place that celebrates the t owns beginning? Parks,we feel,should be places of calm,quiet and relaxation.L akeview Drive is a heavily walked street. The park is bound to become a favorite site to sit and rest for a moment. We just dont see an industrial style sign,buzzing with electricity, as anything but a distraction and inc onflict with the natural beauty. We also are not sure what good the sign will do. Typically,travelersd ont bother passing through the historical part of town. They stick to the highway. Wouldnt a scrolling sign out on U. S. 27 where the entrance monuments are getm ore attention and draw more of the curious? Another element that concerns us i s the potential traffic hazard it creates. Centennial Park is at the center o f an unusual merging of roads Lakeview headed south,Ridgewood D rive South,and Lakeview headed north,drivers have to take a left turn dog leg against traffic. Visitorsu nfamiliar with the citys circular layout will be following the direct ional signs. A scrolling sign will only be a distraction,when its not overlooked altogether. In any case,anything happening downtown will be evident to any-o ne on Lakeview Drive by the time they get to Centennial Park. One of the wonderful things about Sebring is how it is so different from other Florida towns. The Community Redevelopment Agency has worked,along with the Historical Preservation Commission,the city and many businesses to bring back the Historic Downtown. A good part of its attraction is the older world charm. Another asset is the new stores,art galleries and other businesses opening recently.We need to d raw shoppers every bit as much as we need to fill hotels. Yes,we have to figure out how to a ttract more visitors and guests. We should do that carefully,however, n ot settle for tacky gimmicks better suited to a furniture store or auto dealer. Use natural beauty to guide visit ors to the citys busiest park Sebring Circle. If we must have a downtown electronic sign,why not there? It doesnt fit historical Sebrings d esign and atmosphere?

C M Y K That was the headline in B.A.S.S. TIMES, the o fficial publication of the worlds best bass anglers in the March 2013 issue. Its not often that we get national press coverage on our local lakes and I was impressed with the article, written by David A. Brown, highlighting not only one of our bestknown lakes but also Bobby Lane, a name rec-o gnized by many as one of the top tournament bass anglers from Lakeland. According to Lane, If there was one lake that I had to pick to catch a 10pounder or bigger in the springtime, it would be Lake Istokpoga, he said in the article, Youre not just going to get one or t wo good bites a day; man youre going to get 10 to 15 quality bites a day about any time of the year The article goes on to s ay this was not always the case. In the early 1960s, water level stabilization began limiting water fluctuations, resulting in excess vegetation and organic buildup, which impede habitat vegetation and flushing of Florida lakes. Natural lake cycles produce periods of low water, which exposes lake bottoms and allows accumulated muck to dry and disperse with the wind. This clears essential spawning areas where the bass nest on clean, sandy bottoms. Seasonal water fluctuations also allow native plants to establish, offer essential shallow water habitat to shelter young bass and provide feeding cover for adults. The ensuing decline in fishing productivity prompted the FWC and other environmental partners to use alternative means to rejuvenate the lake. From March through July 2001, Istokpoga was drawn down, and mechanical much removal scraped a total of 1,308 acres from 21 miles of shoreline. Since then, annual herbicide treatments and mechanical removal of tussocks and other detrimental vegetation reduce muck buildup and lessen the chance of plant die-offs, which cause fish kills. By 2003, scraped areas had eelgrass, a highly desirable native aquatic plant. By 2009, quality fish habitat covered 33 percent of the lake. FWC considers 20 to 40 per cent aquatic v egetation ideal. In 1997, Lake I stokpoga became a fish management area, and th e Lake Istokpoga Management Committee was formed at the request of Highlands County commissioners. Made up of county and FWC staff and representatives from local user groups (fishermen, guides, fish cam owners, homeowners associations, Audubon); the committee discusses management ideas and provides input. In addition, Friends of Istokpoga, a non-profit group, discusses management activities quarterly, including hydrilla treatment and habitat restoration plans. The FWC has also promoted a trophy fishery on Istokpoga through a 15 to 24 inch slot limit for bass and a three-fish daily bag limit (of which only one bass may be 24 inches or longer). The FWC conducts annual angler surveys and supplements that information with nonlethal electrofishing surveys. The 2012 surveys documented the highest largemouth bass success rate (0.82 fish per hour since the drawdown. Istokpoga is one of Floridas best success stories because it reflects the commissions philosophy of working with local citizens and businesses to try to provide the type of fishery that is wanted by the local community said FWC special projects coordinator Bob Wattendorf. Lane, who has fished the Istokpoga for much of his life, said hes amped over the lakes resurgence. From flipping reeds to trapping shallow grass, Lane expects quality and quantity from this lake. Lane said the FWCs SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, March 8, 2013 Page B4 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE K ara Faircloth got the Sebring run scoring started in the first and it wouldnt stop u ntil the Lady Streaks had piled up 17 runs on visiting Kathleen. By TAYLOR TUBBS N ews-Sun correspondentThe Lady Blue Streaks first game of the District 96Aschedule couldt have ended with a much better result, though head coach Joe Sinness still sees room for improvement even after the 17-9 domination over Kathleen at home on Tuesday night. Kathleen has improved a lot since last year, said Sinness. They have some new coaching. The girls were expecting an easy win, and maybe thats why we came out a little flat. They may have come out a little flat, but it didnt take long for the runs to start coming in bunches to pave the way to the eight-run margin of victory over the Lady Red Devils. Alison Hoffner, Mattie Coe and Kiana Antone lead the offensive charge with several runs batted in apiece for Sebring. Kara Faircloth hit two smashes that both earned her triples. In pitching action, Chelsea Bassett overcame some early control issues and walked away with the win for the Streaks. Sebrings district record stands at 1-0, 6-4 overall, and they look to maintain the winning ways on Friday night in an away game against another district team, the Winter Haven Blue Devils.

D on Norton Lake Istokpoga Big Bass Bonanza has returned See BASS, Page B4 News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Joy Donglasan and the Lady Blue Streaks got back on the winning track this week and are now 10-2 on the season. By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgIt was a dominant week for Sebring girls tennis as the team bounced back in fine form from just their second match loss of the season late last week. After dropping their second match of the season at Lakeland, the Lady Streaks reeled off seven wins in a row. That streak was halted last Thursday, Feb. 28, at George Jenkins, but Sebring seems to have used that to start another run of wins after sweeping DeSoto Tuesday and Lake Wales on Monday. At home against the Lady Bulldogs Tuesday, it was no contest as the Streaks lost a total of five games among the seven matches on the day. Ashley Castelli, Mackenzie Holmes and Sarah Beth Rogers took 6-0, 6-0 wins at Nos 2, 4 and 5 Singles, respectively. Teaoni Coker was virtually as dominant at No. 1 Singles with a 6-0, 6-1 win, while Amanda Rios certainly didnt have too much trouble at No. 3 Singles with a 6-2, 6-1 win. The two doubles matches followed the same pattern with Coker and Castelli cruising to an 8-0 win and Angie Patino and Rogers getting an 8-1 win. Mondays match at Lake Wales provided a little more resistance from the Lady Highlanders, but not too much. At No. 1 Singles, Nisha Patel rebounded from a 6-3, opening-set loss to Jessica Highnight to even it back up with a 6-2 win in the second set. Patel then took over in the tie-breaker and rolled to a 103 win. She really played smart tennis, head coach Jane Hollinger said. She was using drop shots, lobs and passing shots. The rest of the team then Sebring, Lake Placid girls serve up two wins See TENNIS, Page B3 By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comIt was bound to happen sooner or later, Avon Park baseball taking itsfirst loss of the season. In their case this year, it was a team of Bulldogs doing the trick to stop the D evils season-long win streak at nine, with Tuesdays 7-4 loss at DeSoto. F acing senior starter Donovan Day, Avon Park looked to start things early, in their usual way, when Alfred Brown reached on an error to lead off the game. But Brown was caught stealing, and a strike out, hit batter and ground out later made it a scoreless first and would set the tone for the first four innings. And it was the Bulldogs who jumped out to an early lead in the bottom of the frame when Garrett Anderson singled, moved to second on a wild pitch, reached third on a ground out and scored on a Tony Lalonde single. Red Devil starter Kenny McGrath struck two out of the next three batters out to s tem the tide, but the Avon Park offense could not get itself on track against Day. DeSoto added another run in their half of the seco nd, with Rogelio Santoyo singling, stealing second, taking third on a grounder and scoring when a pitch got away. Day worked a one, two, three top of the third and McGrath got the first two b atters out in the bottom of t he inning. But his control left him as he walked the next two Devils downed for first loss See AP, Page B3 Courtesy photo Kenneth Filppula is first in the mens 80-and-up aged ivision at the Panther 5K Saturday, March 2. Special to the News-Sun AVON PARK South Florida State Colleges Panther 5K Run/Walk attracted the highest number of participants in its four-year history, with 178 runners and walkers of all ages taking part in Saturdays race at the SFSC Highlands Campus.

Lake Istokpoga is and continues to be a Big Bass Bonanza. I hadnt been out to Istokpoga in a few weeks so I made a trip last Saturday probably should have checked the weather. For those of you that braved the unseasonable weather, you may recall we had a front come through and the air temperatures dropped and the wind was blowing at 15-20 mph. Avery tough, cold day on the water! I found a few places to get out of the wind, and although I was a little uncomfortable, the fish didnt seem to mind the cooler temperatures. With the wind blowing so hard, I finally gave up on flipping and tried ripping some Rattletraps around the hydrilla and other vegetation. The fish were there, as evidenced by some aggressive strikes from a number of 2-4 pound bass. Were lucky to have such a great body of water in our own backyard, and as the year progresses, Im sure Ill be reporting some nice fish caught and released in Lake Istokpoga. Hopefully, Ill catch a few. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

We a re pleased to have this opportunity to work witht he federal government, Health Care Navigator,LLC and Sunshine State Health Plan in leading the redesign of post-acute care servicesf or patients with a variety of orthopedic,respiratory and UTI-related conditions, said David Smith,administrator at Lake Placid HealthC are Center.

The Bundled Payments for Care Improvement initiative includes four models of bundling payments,varying by the types of health care providers involved and the services included in the bundle. Depending on the model type,CMS will bundle payments for services beneficiaries receive during an episode of care,encouraging hospitals,physicians, post-acute facilities ando ther providers as applicable to work together to improve health outcomes and lower costs.

Like any job,gardening requires the right tools.F irst is a good pair of gloves. The same weather t hat brings many of us here also brings many biting critters,not to mentiont horns and other sharp objects in the ground. They w ill also prevent blisters. Next,make sure your equipment is in good repair. Pruners are sharp,rakes have all the tines and shov-e ls are the right type (yes, there are more than one t ype of shovels,but you will need to ask the garden tool guy for help in decid-i ng) and handle length for your height. For those of us w ho are a little stiff,tools with ergonometric bent handles are available on theI nternet and at many garden supply stores. Avoid custom hand grips as these are often one size fits no one. Pick jobs that are realist ic. Let the nursery plant the very large trees. They also guarantee their work. Dont try to carry very large sacks of pebbles,m ulch,or sand. Use your wheelbarrow or wagon. There is no prize for pruning all of your hedges in one afternoon except perhaps a visit to your friendlyo rthopedist. Vary the jobs do a little digging,a little p runing,a little weeding so that different muscle groups are used. If a joint or mus-c le starts aching,stop,rest and put a little ice on so the j oint or muscle tends to forget who it is mad at. An easy way to make small ice packs is to get the original blue green Dawn,put it in aZ iploc and freeze. It will stay squishy and refreeze. D ont forget kneeling pads to protect your knees, also hats and sunscreen.G ardening may be more fun than other exercises but you s till need to remember to drink plenty of fluid as the days get hotter. I f you are working in a small area and do not want to work bent over,try a small stool. There are even some with handles makingi t easier to get up. If you still cant get down to put in those annuals,you can do pots or try to find a kid for hire. They are oftene nthusiastic,can turn into garden aficionados and, most of all,they bend easily. They just need a little supervision. Lastly sit back and enjoy y our lovely yard. Dr. Diana D.

C M Y K to reduce re-admissions, duplicative care and complications to lower costst hrough improvement. This marks the start of P hase 1 of Models 2,3 and 4. In Phase 1,(through July 2013) more than 100 participants partnering with more than 400 provider organiza-t ions,will receive new data from CMS on care patterns and engage in shared learning in how to improve care. Phase 1 participants are gen-e rally expected to become participants in Phase 2,in which approved participants opt to take on financial risk for episodes of care starting in July 2013,pending contract finalization and completion of CMSstandard program integrity reviews. The objective of this initiative is to improve the quality of health care delivery for Medicare beneficiaries,while reducing program expenditures,by aligning the financial incentives of all providers,said Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services acting administrator Marilyn Tavenner. The healthcare delivery s ystem is changing and in the future will certainly be based on the value of the service provided. That means the clinical outcomes must beg ood,the service great and the cost modest. More and more consumers are relying on publicly available satisfaction and outcome data to make decisions about who can best provide their healthcare. Service providers like Lake Placid Health Care Center that are guided by outcomes data and that have experience in both,improving customer satisfaction and coordinating care with other providers to achieve lower costs,will be in the best position to succeed in the future. I n the coming months, Lake Placid Health Care Center will continue working with its partners,local hospitals,physicians,home healthp roviders and other stakeholders to collaboratively develop clinical pathways, care transition protocols and quality measures in an effort to ensure that the people we serve receive the best possible outcomes. Ultimately, our goal is to help each person recover as quickly as possible from their illness and return back home safely and without complications, Smith said.

L.P.,Jacksonville Answer:Linden herb is so awesome and because it hass o many health benefits,I incorporate it into many home-made herbal teas. You may not have been heard of it before but this centuriesold herb has been historical-l y used as a non-narcotic treatment to help with sleep a nd anxiety and it lowers blood pressure. Linden herb is chock-full o f of antioxidants and ingredients that impact your card iovascular,digestive and respiratory tract. Linden is best known to help with mild insomnia and anxiety. One of the active ingredients inl inden is an essential oil called farnesol,which helps r elax the cardiovascular system. This may have a positive impact on arrhythmiasw hile also curbing stress. Most people report feeling r elaxed,and even drowsy. Linden can also help with indigestion as well as nauseaa nd vomiting. This is interesting. Linden mildly reduces blood press ure because the farnesol it contains acts like a natural c alcium channel blocker (drugs that are in this category include amlodipine, nifedipine and diltiazem among others. Linden also isa mild diuretic and gently dilates blood vessels allowi ng blood to flow more freely. Sweet,if you have high blood pressure. Thats aid,dont give up your medication,I dont think its a s strong as medicine unless you combine it with other antihypertensive herbs. This is a good time of year to mention that lindeni s capable of soothing the upper respiratory tract,great i f you have a cold or flu. It promotes sweating,so this as a great natural way to break a fever and release toxins from your body. It has natur al antiseptic properties so it could ward off infections. Having both expectorant anda nti-inflammatory properties, linden can help thin mucus and this could be very soothi ng for some people,especially those with bronchitis, e mphysema,chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD Linden supports liver health and enhances bile secretion and these actionsh elp you eliminate toxins better. Linden is not that popular (yetant it,these are only a few options:Dried herb is soldo nline and some health food stores,just make tea like I do (one tablespoon herb per cup of water); for a stronger effect,buy a pure extract made by Herb Pharm or cap-s ules made by Natures Way. L inden grows all over Colorado and its a gorgeous tree. If you have one,bec areful harvesting because of skin reaction. Also,too m uch linden can adversely effect the heart. Because it has widespread effects on the body,head to toe,it could interact with medica-t ions,especially lithium and diuretics. Its important to a sk your doctor ifnew herbs,even great ones like linden,are appropriate fory ou.

C M Y K O n the way home from the local worship service one Sunday morning,a little girl turned to her mother and declared,Mommy,the preachers sermon confused me today. The mother said,Oh? What did he say that confused you? The little girl answered, ell,he said that God is bigger than we are. Is that true? es,that is true,the mother replied with a smile. The little girl then affirmed,He also said that God lives within us. Is that true,too? Again the mother replied, es,that is true. God lives within all of His faithful children. Then,said the little girl, if God is bigger than us, and if He lives in us,then wouldnt He show through? If one is living a Christian life,then God is living in him. Therefore,God should be able to show throughin that persons life. Some might even say that God cannot help but show throughin that persons life. However,Jesus taught that at least some of the responsibility of God showing throughfalls upon us. In Matthew 5:16,Jesus commanded,Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works,and glorify your Father who is in Heaven. So,letting our lights shine is not good enough. Jesus wants us to let our lights shine so brightly that others will be drawn to them and saved,as a result. If we want to please God, then we must become His children and live faithful Christian lives. That means that we cannot keep our Christianity to ourselves. Rather,we must share God with others by teaching His truths and living obedient lives that allow Him to show throughto all those around us. Kevins Komments is presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway. On the Internet visit www.sebringcoc.com, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We continue our examination of the claim of Islam in the Koran/Quran (Surah IV,157) that Jesus was not crucified,i.e.d id not die on the cross. Therefore,they claim He did not rise from the dead. This claim by Muhammad is defended by Ahmed Deedat in his book byt he above title. We now examine more of Deedats arguments. Pilate marvelsto hear that Jesus was dead. He knew from experience that no man cand ie so soon by crucifixion. He suspected that Jesus was alive. Pilate learned from his centuriont hat Jesus was dead. (Mark 15:44,45) As previously stated, Muslin Deedat makes no men-t ion of Jesusbeating/scourging (Isaiah 52:14 f ixion as a factor in hastening His death. Report on winding s heets. German scientists who carried out experiments on the Shroud of Turinsaid that the heart of Jesus had not stopped functioning that he was alive. Ahmed Deedat is really desperate to back up the claims ofM uhammad that Jesus did not die on the cross. This shroud is a centuries old linen cloth that has an image of a man supposed to have been crucified.W ikipedia says The shroud continues to remain one of the m ost studied and controversial artifacts in human history. Deedat claims to know it was t he body of Jesus where is the evidence? Forbade Mary Magdalene to touch him. Touch me notfor this reason that itw ould hurt; because he was alive.Deedat writes on page 48,Though he appears normal to all intents and purposes,he had,nevertheless,been througha violent,physical and emotional ordeal. It would be excruciati ngly painful if he allowed her any enthusiastic contact.Thisa ccount is from John 20:17 and the KJV uses touchwhereas t he NKJV uses do not cling to me. The meaning of the haptois to cling to,lay hold ofand haptomaiis to touch, hold on,embrace. The obviousm eaning is not to literally touch because in Matthew 28:9 disciples came and held Him/Jesus by His feet and worshipped Him! In fact,Jesus explained to Mary,Do not cling to Me,for Ih ave not yet ascended to My Father Deedats purpose is t o claim that Jesus was not resurrected but resuscitated! Ate food again and again i n his post crucifixionappearances. Food only necessary if he w as alive.His purpose for eating in their presence was to demonstrate that He was not a spirit. (Luke 24:36-43) In this He was proving to them His res-u rrection. Deedat claims that if Jesus had died he would have b een raised a spiritual body. Observe his statements on pages 58,59 the disciples weret hinking that he had returned from the dead,that he had been r esurrected and if so he would be in a spiritual form a spirit! And Jesus is telling them that hei s not spirit not resurrected! ... Jesus was telling his disciples, when he said Behold my hands a nd my feet,that the body he wanted them to see,feel and t ouch was not a spiritual body, nor a metamorphosed body,nor a resurrected body. Because a resurrected bodybecomes spiritualised!How wouldD eedat explain Lazarus or Dorcas? Perhaps he is ignorant of the prophet David and Peters declaration on Pentecost:he, foreseeing this,spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ,that His soul was not left in Hades,nor did His flesh see corruption. This Jesus God has raised up. Of which we are all witnesses(Acts 2:31,32 27. Testimony of angels: angels who had said that he was aliveLuke 24:23. Did not say,resurrectedbut the actual word uttered by the angels was alivThis is a classic example of cafeteria style (picking and choosing) interpretation. The original statement of the two men/angels was He is noth ere,but is risen! Remember how he spoke to you when He was still in Galilee(Luke 24:6;M atthew 28:6). Now read the words of Jesus,The Son of Man must suffer man things,a nd be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, a nd be killed,and be raised the third day(Luke 9:22). Ahmed Deedats books, Crucifixion or Crucifiction and Resurrection or R esuscitationare filled with stories of people who were crucifiedyet did not die. The English word crucifixion comes from the Greek word Staurosa nd means an upright pale or stake. Crucifixion did not a lways result in death and the newspaper stories have no bearing on the death of Jesus on thec ross. There is an abundance of witn esses of His death and then the risen Savior in the four accounts of His life and the Holy Spirits l ist in First Corinthians 15:58enough evidence to convince any open-minded jury. But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits oft hose who have fallen asleep (First Corinthians 15:20This was the foundation for a living hope in the formerly distraught disciples (First Peter 1:3b oldly proclaimed from Pentecost (Acts 2ard.

C M Y K By FRAZIER MOORE AP Television WriterNEW YORK Valerie Harper,who played Rhoda Morgenstern on televisions The Mary Tyler Moore Shoand its spinoff, Rhoda,has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. People magazine reported on its website Wednesday that the 73-year-old actress received the news on Jan. 15. Tests revealed she has leptomeningeal carcinomatosis,a rare condition that occurs when cancer cells spread into the fluidfilled membrane surrounding the brain. The report says Harpers doctors have said she has as little as three months to live. I dont think of dying, Harper told the magazine ina cover interview. I think of being here now. Harpers character, Rhoda,was one of televisions most beloved characters during the 1970s,and the tart-tongued,self-deprecating Rhoda made Harper a star. She won three consecutive Emmys (1971-73 supporting actress on Maryplus another for outstanding lead actress for Rhoda,which ran from 1974-78. Harper began show business as a dancer in several Broadway musicals,and worked in summer stock and with the Second City improv group. I was a dancer but I was always a little overweight, she once told The Associated Press. Id say, Hello,Im Valerie Harper and Im overweight.d say it quickly before they could. ... I always got called chubby,my nose was too wide, my hair was too kinky. Accordingly,she played Rhoda at first as a plump, wisecracking contrast to slender,winsome Mary Richards. But as The Mary Tyler Moore Shoevolved, Rhoda trimmed down and her own brand of beauty was acknowledged. The character was wildly popular and soon inspired her own CBS sitcom,which saw Rhoda moving back home to New York City and even getting married. After her success on TV, she returned to theater. Several TV movie and feature films followed,including Chapter Twand Blame It on Rio. In 2000,she reunited with Moore in a TV film,Mary and Rhoda. Rhoda Morgenstern gave a wonderful impetus and propulsion to my career, she told the AP in 2001. At the time,she had stepped into the role originated by former Alicestar Linda Lavin in the Broadway comedy The Tale of the Allergists Wife. Harper played what she described as an angst-ridden Woman of a Certain Age,and she likened that character to Rhoda,whose shared creed,she said,is Get into life,and enjoy it. Just stop with the white knuckles and relax. Be OK with yourself. In recent years,Harper had guest roles on several TV series,and in 2010 was back on Broadway playing Tallulah Bankhead,a flamboyant star from Hollywoods Golden Age. AP Drama Critic Michael Kuchwara wrote that Harper submerges the iconic Rhoda Morgensternand has a ferocious sense of comic timing. In January,Harper published a new memoir,I, Rhoda.

Im not sure if Im blocking it or if Im being the strongwilled adult I was raised to be by my father and bestf riend. I was never raised with the men dont cryor be strong for your mother concept. Am I repressing my emotions? And if so,is there anything I can do to start dealing with this? Just A nother Inmate in Pennsylvania D ear Just: All people do not react to bad news in the same way crying,screaming or lashing out. Some go numb for a period of time,u ntil they are ready to process their emotions. Part of your problem may be that because youre incarcerated, you feel helpless. N ot knowing whether psychological counseling is available for prisoners in your jail or how effective it is if its offered at all Im recommending you discuss this with a chaplain. It would be a safe way to air some of the emotions you are struggling with. You have my sympathy. Dear Abby: I am the mother of a yours,mine and oursfamily. Between u s,my husband and I have six children. I have been for his three children since the oldest was 6. Fifteen years have passed,a nd I raised all of them as my own. Because the stress of such a large family has taken its toll at times,I have said I couldnt wait untile veryone was 18 and out of the house. Three of the children are on their own now and three remain. The youngest is 14. I recently took my 18-year-olds on to the Air Force recruiter to take his entrance test and a s I watched him walk into the building,I started to cry. I realized I dont really want t hem to go away. I have been a parent since I was 17,and now at 40 Im having a hard time imagining life without them. Im afraid of having only my husband to keep me occu-p ied. There has never been a time without kids around. I m afraid itll be like starting our relationship all over again,and he may not likew hat he sees.

Your nest will be full f or four more years and if there is something about yourself that you see that you dont like,there is plenty of time to do somethinga bout it. You are more than justa mother. Because your responsibilities as a parent have lightened,use the time to broaden your horizons and develop some mutual inter-e sts with your husband that you couldnt before.

It never really accomplishes either successfully. A prequel to the groundbreaking 1939 picture,Oz can be very pretty but also overlong and repetitive,witha plot thats more plodding that dazzling. Director SamR aimi also is trying to find his own balance here b etween creating a bigbudget,3-D blockbuster and placing his signature stampo f kitschy,darkly humorous horror. Hes done the lavish C GI thing before,with diminishing results,in the Spider-Mantrilogy,but here he has the daunting task of doing so while mining ane ven more treasured pop culture phenomenon. T he results are understandably inconsistent. Oz features a couple of fun per-f ormances,a handful of witty lines,some clever d etails and spectacular costumes. And its all punctuated by a Danny Elfman scoret hat serves as a reminder of how similar this effectsladen extravaganza is to the l atter-day (and mediocre work of Elfmans frequent c ollaborator,Tim Burton specifically,2010s Alice in Wonderland,also from Disney. At its center is a miscast J ames Franco,co-star of Raimis Spider-Man movies,as the circus huckster who becomes the reluctant Wizard of Oz. On the page (in the script from Mitchell Kapner and DavidL indsay-Abaire),Francos selfish,scheming womanize r provides an early glimpse of the famous fraud that Dorothy Gale and her posse of new pals will go on to expose. But Franco seemst oo boyish for the role; hes neither charismatic nor selfl oathing enough and his performance frequently consists of hammy goofing. So when his character does have a change of heart andd ecides to accept his destiny as a noble and inspiring leader,it rings hollow. Before he gets there, though,he must journeyt hrough the Technicolortinted splendor of this wildl y dreamlike place much of which resembles one oft hose Thomas Kinkade paintings youd see at the mall not once but many times,which feels redundant. But then again,so doest he whole structure of the film itself. Like Dorothy,Francos Oscar Diggs is whisked away from sepia-toned,rural K ansas of 1905 (projected in slightly boxier Academy r atio,a nice touch) through a tornado to the vibrantly hued,magical land that just happens to bear his nickname:Oz. Like Dorothy,hew alks along the yellow brick road with some new comp anions who have ties to his old life back home:a wisecracking,flying monkey( voiced by Zach Braff,channeling Billy Crystal) and a s pritely but resourceful china doll (voiced by Joey King). A nd like Dorothy,once he reaches his destination,he must face a witch. But w hich witch is which? You see,there are three,one of w hom is the truly wicked one. First,he meets the beautiful and naiveTheodora (Mila Kunis),who believesh e is the wonderful wizard her father,the king,said would come to save Oz in a prophecy before he was killed. Kunis is weirdly stiff and subdued in these early scenes,which squander heri nherent spark; later,as Theodora evolves,she s creeches in a tone thats reminiscent of her Family Guycharacter,the awkward teenage Meg,screaming at her brother Chris tog et out of her room. Next comes Theodoras sophisticated and deceitful s ister,Evanora (a funny, vampy Rachel Weisz),who r ules over Emerald City as its protector and fills Oz in on the riches that could be his if he fulfills the prophecy,kills the Wicked Witcha nd becomes the king. Finally,theres Glinda the G ood Witch,played by a sweetly ethereal Michelle Williams. She also appearsi n the Kansas prelude as a young woman whos clearly s mitten by Oz and hesitant to accept a marriage proposal from another man. (If shem arries him,by the way,her last name will be Gale.)

C M Y K LIVING B12 SE CTION News-Sun Friday, March 8, 2013 FAMILY FEATURES When it comes to adding technology to your home,the bedroom might not be the first place you would consider. But the reality is that high tech is becoming an integral part of every living space including the bedroom. A survey by the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA) looked at what designers expect to s ee in American homes by the year 2020. The report predicts that:Master bedroom suites will get busier,sharing time as a home office,media center or exercise room.97 percent of respondents believe that by 2020 many home furnishings will be activated by means such as voice and sensor. Primary candidates for remote control/motorized operation include lighting,entertainment gear,environmental controls and window treatments. High-tech is here to stay,said Emily Henderson, HGTV Design Starwinner and designer on Secrets from a Styliston HGTV. Technology can make your life easier in so many ways. And with so much activity centered in the master suite, it makes sense to add useful tech devices into that living space,too. Here are a few of Hendersons favorite ways to modernize the master bedroom in style: Emily HendersonAddingtechnologyandstyle tothebedroom |BedcontrolIt shouldnt take a lot of work to get comfortable enough to relax, said Henderson. Traditional beds only have one position,and thats not going to be a good fit for everyone or every activity. Thats why I love Leggett & Platts adjustable bed bases. With a wireless remote I can easily change my position to be comfortable no matter what Im doing. Henderson says that todays adjustable base beds are not only more functional than old models,but there more attractive,too. You can find a style to fit your room and a model that offers the level of technology that youre comfortable with,she said. For example,the Leggett & Platt Designer Series has intuitive digital remotes that let you adjust both the head and the foot of your mattress so you can find exactly the right position. They even have a massage feature for a little stylish pampering and a bed skirt option for a more traditional look.Learn more at www.lpadjustablebeds.com. |MusiccontrolYou want to listen to music on good quality speakers,but you dont want a huge speaker in your bedroom; nor do you want to have to get up and turn the stereo off. Also,I dont always like the music right next to my ear,on the nightstand,said Henderson,so instead I recommend a Bluetooth or wireless speaker that plugs into your wall. You can find speakers that are small and attractive with a great sound and can be controlled by your smartphone next to your bed. When choosing a speaker,keep a few things in mind:Bluetooth reach is limited to about 30 feet. Some speakers use Wi-Fi wireless network technology,which has wider coverage.Some models have a dock for smartphones or other devices, as well as additional audio inputs for connecting other devices such as your TV. Make sure the model you choose is compatible with your devices some only work with iOS or Android systems.Some wireless speakers come with remotes or voice recognition controls,but the quality varies. Read user reviews before making your decision.|HeatcontrolSleeping at the right temperature is crucial for a wakeless nights sleep, but finding an attractive thermostat can be tricky. There are thermostats which you can control with your iPhone even if you are traveling,so that when you are headed home you can make sure its warm enough without wasting a lot of energy,said Henderson. These thermostats are intended to save you energy and money by automatically learning your patterns and behavior and adjusting itself accordingly. You can also create your own personal comfort zone within the bedroom with temperature controlled pillows and blankets. And theres nothing quite like waking up and putting your feet down on heated flooring. |Remotecontrol TVmountall mounting your TV isnt anything new,but being able to lie in bed and control the exact placement (right,left,tilt up,tilt down) is a total luxury,said Henderson. Many companies are starting to do this so you dont have to have the TV across from your bed,instead you can put it on a side wall and have the long extendable arm bring the TV to you by remote. Make sure that your wall mount is compatible with your television. Check the weight rating on the mounts and brackets to make sure they can support your TV. Some mounts have different shapes to fit different screen sizes. Check the specification on the packaging to be sure. Hide ugly cables with a cord concealer. You can find lowprofile paintable flat screen cord cover kits at your local home improvement stores. Paint them to match your wall and thell blend right in.|Motorized window treatment controls such a luxury to be able to lie in bed and use a remote to open your curtains or shades in the morning,said Henderson. I think it officially means you are a grown up,but in a good way. Henderson recommends that you get shades or curtains that have blackout lining,and ideally two settings one for privacy and light control,which would be lighter and thinner,and one with the blackout lining for that perfect dark room that you can sleep in. Blackout curtains also muffle outside noise. Im a big fan of The Shade Store motorized window treatments,which are all custom made. They are super high quality so less likely to break down and are still very attractive. You can find motorized shades or shutters with a timer,which lets you program them to open and close whenever you like. Some have wall switches,while others have a remote control so you can operate them from anywhere.
