The American Cancer Societys Relay For Life event will take place this year in Lake Placid on April 6 at the Lake Placid High School football field beginning at noon. Many enthusiastic local teams will set up campsites to prepare for the 18 hours of fun. Since the signature color for Relay For Life is purple, local merchants and individuals are encouraged to display this color in any way possible for the entire week preceding the event. Purple bows, purple clothing, purple banners and other creative ideas will remind everyone of the purpose for Relay For Life. Many businesses are already displaying their purple. Florida Hospital in Lake Placid has an actual tree in the lobby sporting purple ribbons and remembrance medallions, and folks are encouraged to hang one on in honor or memory of a loved one.

I am going to have to review it again, said JeffK ennedy of Swamp Hammock. I t appeared that commiss ioners moved to deny a requested zoning change and i nstead allow the Swamp Hammock group to apply for a special event permit, some-t hing which does not exist in Highlands County. However, i n making the motion, C ommissioner Ron Handley also mentioned a temporary u se permit. There is a huge difference between a special events anda temporary use permit, Kennedy said.

While women have served non-militarily as nurses and in other supportive roles for hundreds of years, young mothers are now going into harms way along with their male counterparts. More than 40,000 women have served in the Gulf Wars alone. These women are serving proudly, with dedication and courage and they are serving voluntarily. However, when they return home, theyre doing so with severe injuries, such as missing limbs, head trauma, and disfigurement in many forms, just like many of their male counterparts. The Veterans Administration has long been a highly recognized source of care, providing the very best hospitalization for the wounded service men and women. Highly skilled doctors, nurses, and surgeons, as well as neurological,p hysiological and psychological specialists make up the outstanding care teams in this countrys VA system. The Poly Trauma Center, which opened in February 2012, is a new and extremely high tech facility attached to the present Audie Murphy Veterans Hospital in San Antonio.

Eightyp ercent of the funding comes from the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The city matches with 20 percent. According to Maria Sutherland,direct or of administrative services,the surrounding basin area empties all of its water into Lake Verona. The basin extends from North Lake Avenue east to Highlands Avenue; and from East Pleasant Street north to Winthrop Street,at otal of 73 acres. Lake Verona covers 41 acres,and is an estimated 80 feet deep at i ts deepest. Several inlets collect untreated run-off ans discharge through various outfallsd irectly into the lake,Sutherland said. This puts the laks health at risk. T he project,through swales,flumes and re-signed curbing,redirects the raw run-off to areas where it can be filtered through the ground instead of directly into the lake. P reliminary design was begun Feb. 1 and should be complete May 1. C onstruction is schedueled to begin Dec. 1 and completed by October 2014. The total cost of the project is about $ 602,000. Of the total,the district pays just more than $450,000 and the city just o ver $150,000.

She is now retired,her time her own after 25 years working at T own Hall. Tuck took the town from typewriters and carbon paper to computers and printers; from ledgers toE xcel. She sent a message Thursday to h er colleagues and friends:oday is my last day with the Town of Lake Placid. Retirement Date is here. I h ave greatly enjoyed working with all of you. I appreciate all the support you have given me and all the friendship. I wish allg ood things for you in the future and look forward to our community and county prospering. Again,thank you so m uch for your kindness and to all of you who have stopped by,sent cards, e mails,etc. thank you so very much. Tuck spent her last day at Lake P lacid City Hall in a bittersweet way, enjoying visits and calls from local dignitaries and many people shes grown to call friends. Tuck revealed that she doesnt h ave any major plans but just looks forward to enjoying her time not working. Im going to do what I want, when I want,as I want,Tuck saidw ith a laugh. When I woke up this morning the first thing I thought when I heard my alarm go off was Im turning this alarm off for good tomorrow. B esides waking up in her own good time,Tuck has decided to take a w eek to herself before going on a spring cleaning spree in her home. Tuck,who has called Lake Placid h ome since 1958,has roots in Tampa but knows that Lake Placid is where s he has made her life and her living and has no plans to leave it. Im going to miss my co-workers t he most and just the people in the town. Lake Placid isnt big,so I will still see them out but I w ill miss the interaction, Tuck said. C o-workers feel the same and have made it clear that Tuck is a huge part of their everyday lives. U tilities Department employee Pam Pelletier has known Tuck for eight years and is saddened to see her friend leave. Her leaving is hard. The friendship weve developed and her vastk nowledge of the town and this county are going to be missed. She is not g oing to be able to replaced and its going to be a lot different. It doesnt make it a bad thing or a good thing, but she is going to be sorely,sorely missed,said Pelletier. Her professionalism,her calmness,her personality,shes just got all these great qualities all rolled up into one person. News-Sun staff writer Christopher Tuffley contributed to this report.

Organizers and concerned citizens sat downw ith Highlands County Sheriffs Office Chief D eputy Mark Schrader and County Code Enforcement approximately three weeksa go to discuss the event and procedures. S chrader revealed that discussion was held between the parties but did not give muchd etails regarding what went on at t he meeting. The sheriffs office can notg ive them approval for this e vent,thats up to the county. Code enforcem ent is who you would need to talk to; we did sit down with the organizers threew eeks ago down there. I cant comment on whether or not the sheriffso ffice will be there if the event g oes on, Schrader said. Z oning Supervisor Linda Conrad was unable to be reached for comment Thursday morning and no other individuals in theC ode Enforcement Office could give any further information. Onterial Clark,organizer and concerned HighwayP ark Citizen,spoke about the plans to continue the 10-year tradition of the Easter celebration. e still plan on going out,this is rooted in tradi-t ion and wed hate to see it go away,but we are warning everyone that they need to comply with the rules...We sat down withC hief Deputy (Schrader and two people from the County,but since then thereh as been no dialog. That was about a month ago, Clark stated. T he annual event poses difficulties in a number of s afety areas according to last years statements by Sheriff Susan Benton.L oud,obscene music,traffic flow,and safety issues a re the biggest concern for the HCSO; Clark feels those same issues are of most importancet o him and a great majority of t he Highway Park residents. This year we a re minus a lot of vendors. We w ill be keeping the music to a minimum and w e plan to follow any codes. We just hope (law and code enforcement)d ont do what they did last year. It was overkill and we have it in ourm ind-frame that its going to be t he norm from now on,Clark s aid. Clark admitted that the event itself is difficult to organize due to the residential area in which the blockp arty and celebration is held. Residents normally open up their yards to neighbors and visitors and provide everything fromp arking to vending spots for the event. Clark even Easter party planners hope for safe, quiet weekend event We want it to be a family fun event ... W e want p eople to c ome and enjoy themselves in a respectful manner.

C M Y K Take the case of whether to allow the Swamp Hammock o utdoor recreation club to open for business. It is not as if the commissioners had not d one their homework. They sat through hours of public discussion, consulted county staff, went on field trips to thep roposed site and the cattle r anch next door, talked to all o f the interested parties and researched county codes and zoning regulations. B ut, despite their diligence, at the county meeting Tuesdaya fternoon the commissioners ended up right back where they started, voting to allow Swamp Hammock to operate o n a special exception. In other words, it took the c ommission a year to approve the first recommended course of action. S wamp Hammock was proposed in the fall of 2011. In the spring of 2012 county s taff recommended the county a pprove the outdoor club through a special use exception in agricultural zoning. A few weeks later, in April, the staff withdrew that recom-m endation because one of the clubs managers said he w ould open the business even i f the county ruled against him. In the time since there have been public hearings, zoning reports, endless discussions, numerous delays and shifting d ecisions. Y oud think after all that t he commissioners would have been clear and confident Tuesday night. Unfortunately, that turned out to be expecting t oo much. The commissioners at times looked like a row of children passing a hot potato, ultimately tossing it in Linda Conrads lap. Conrad is the countys supervisor of zoning. It will be up to her to go over the 38 conditions imposed on the c lub by the commission with t he Swamp Hammock mana gement team. It will be her decision whether or not to g rant the special exception. W hen we think of the time and tax dollars spent this past year on this issue, the number o f equally pressing problems that are being put off because of the issue, and the delays both the applicants and localr esidents endured, it is disapp ointing commissioners didt rise to the occasion. R ecently one of the comm issioners quipped that no m atter how the vote went, half o f the people were going to be upset. Turns out he was wrong. With this wishywashy decision, closer to 100 percent of county residents will be gritting their teeth andw ondering where the decisive politicians live.

As one who d evoted much of his life to the family business of pranking people, Im often asked iff olks are more difficult to trick today than six decades ago when my dad, Allen Funt, invented Candid Camera. After all, were now so dialed ina nd media savvy, certainly were less susceptible to j okespractical or otherwise. Fact is, people are more e asily tricked than ever. Multi-tasking has a lot to d o with it; hardly any moments remain when we focus our complete attention on just one thing. Were easily distracted, anda ny magician will tell you that distraction is the key t o fooling people. Also, technology has made such incredible leaps that almosta nything seems possible, and thus believable. B ut the perfect storm for chicanery is in media. Ease of access via the Internet,c oupled with speedy distribution that leaves factcheckers in the dust, is crea ting a robust market for fake newsif you like that s ort of thing. How difficult can it be to fool Americans at a time when an alarming percentage of them tell pollsters they use JonS tewarts Daily Show as a primary source for news? Among the latest gems: a report that Paul Krugman, the New York Times columnist and Nobel winner in economics, hadf iled for bankruptcy. The item was written by a satiri cal website called The Daily Currant and then transmitted as real news by the financial blog Prudent Investor via Boston.com( owned by The Times) and picked up by the conservative site Breitbart.com. The Currant struck a few weeks earlier with a boguss tory that Sarah Palin was joining the Middle Eastern news service Al Jazeera. The Washington Posts Suzi Parker reported it as fact, prompting Palin to tweet, Hey @washingtonpost, Im having coffee with Elvis this week. This might be fun, except for what it says about our politics and our news. We increasingly rely on the Internet to reinforce our beliefs, so we naturally grab at things that appear to do that.W ere so enamored of click-andshare gossip that we pass things along withoutm uch question. Even the largest media outlets seem eager to link to the juiciest i tems that are trending. Media were so hungry for tidbits about Pope Francis that not one but several phony Twitter accounts were cited at vari-o us times as being the new popes true messages, until t he Vatican cleared things up. The public may be as g ullible as ever, but its also media professionals w ho are falling for the phony news stories. Thats nothing newits just that hoaxsters now have better tools. B ack in the early s I wrote an annual April F ools column in which I sought to fool media with fake news about media.O ne year, shortly after singer Michael Jackson a ccidentally burned some of his hair during a pyrotechnic stunt, I wrotet hat Paramount was making a movie about it called ingle, and that MTV h ad paid millions for the video, while USANetwork w as preparing a Tingle workout show and Parker Bros. was selling a ingle board game. I even said Allstate was han-d ling fire insurance for the entire Tingle enterprise. Richard Hack, a writer for the trade publication Hollywood Reporter, went on national TVto break the news. To his discredit, hed idnt even name his source for the story, claimi ng the reporting to be his own. I finally gave up writing April Fools columns after concluding that mediat ypes were so easily gulled it just wasnt fun to mess with them. Now websites like The Daily Currant and TheO nion do this sort of thing as a business. The public is occasionally tricked, but its media that increasingly play the fools.

I am doing a report on your state so I was wondering if you could maybe send me some supplies. Like: a mini state flag, seeds from state flower, pictures of state gem, stamps, candy, a coconut, a license plate, and last a stuffed animal of the state bird. If you could do this I would be very thankful. I really like your state because I thought it was a beautiful state. I like it because there is Disney World and Miami.

Editors note: The email address for Rosie D. is ktalbert@conway.k12.wa.us. The schools address is Conway School, 19710 State Route 534, Mount Vernon, WA 98274.A couple of thoughts to ponderEditor: In World War II, both parents were not allowed to serve in the military at the same time. It is a shame that parents leave their children with grandparents or others, both going off to a killing war. What a burden to place on little shoulders trying to learn at school, homework, school activities, fear of never seeing, hugging mom or dad again or perhaps losing them both. How can these little ones escape not being traumatized for life? If the unattached want to go, more power to them. One parent, preferably mother, needs to be with her children. The cartoon in the paper says it all. Another thought, the FDAis supposed to protect our life, health and well-being. I am interested in knowing the benefits the FDAgained for our health and life by trading sugar for aspartame in drinks and food prepared for consumers. Sugar, we know, is a major reason for obesity; now an epidemic in this country. There are also suspicions of secret additives hidden in foods and drinks making it much harder to resist over-indulging. Aspartame is dangerous to consumers because of scarring the inside walls of arteries. When blood passes through the cardiovascular system, cholesterol sticks to the damaged arteries. It continues to add on to the clump of cholesterol each time the blood passes through until arteries are completely occluded, resulting in a heart attack. How has the FDAhelped us? Pharmaceuticals, huge corporations, our officials in the highest positions in government have fell prey to the temptation of large gifts of money, luxurious vacations and other sweet deals, even doctors have been and are, lured into pushing medicines they know are insufficiently tested. Some medicines have been tested only on animals and are approved by the FDA. Lobbies, buying votes from our lawmakers and favors from others in high places have all but taken over our government. Our governmental finances were stolen, ravaged with billions of dollars missing under the auspices of eight years of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. This is the way lobbies put their chosen point men (candidates) in office. I believe these are the reasons President Obama has been blocked time and again. He did not sell out to the mob in Washington, so they hate him. From the Supreme Court downward to city and town officials, votes have been garnered for money and gifts. Our judicial system in this country, around the world for that matter, is as frayed and weakened by the influence of money. Our law officials are as tempted by the gifts of money and favors paliced by themselves, like the fox in the henhouse. Una V. McLaughlin Sebring BouquetPeople still care about each otherEditor: The Childrens Museum of the Highlands was one of the unlucky buildings that got hit by recent vandalism. One of our beautiful front windows was shattered in the early morning hours this past Sunday. As we surveyed the damage Sunday morning and tried to figure out what to do, it was heartening to have people stop by and tell us how sorry they were that it had happened. Not knowing how to proceed, we were lucky to have Darren and Meri from Darren Thomas Glass stop by and explain the art of boarding up a window without ruining the metal frame. Then, a gentleman walking down the street stopped and offered his help. He went back to his house, got some tools and spent several hours helping us clean the glass and board the window. There is no way to adequately thank John (John-Boy Payne of Tolar Automotive for his help and expertise. As frustrating as it was to have this happen to so many buildings in the area, the outcome still proved why the Childrens Museum exists after 22 years. People in this community still care about each other and reach out to help. Thank you to all that expressed their good wishes and especially to John Payne, a good friend to the Childrens Museum. Linda Crowder Director The Childrens Museum of the Highlands Floundering in the swamp Why is it so rare to find straightforward politicians working to solve problems? Either they think they know whats best, making deci-s ions regardless of public opinion; or they become overwhelmed by public opinion and cant make a decision.

NEWS-SUN-6155 ing need for facilities providing longer convalescent or rehabilitative care. In many states across the United States, Veterans Administration Homes offer such care, but they are geared toward older veterans. Neither the type of care, nor the dignity of young women returning home with injuries requiring long term care, is met in these types of facilities. Such is the situation with our daughter, Major Kristine Ratliff, RN, USAF Retired. Kriss life changed completely in the blink of an eye on April 21, 2010 as she traveled home from Wilford Hall Medical Center at Lackland Air Force Base where she served as a pediatric intensive care unit (PICUfered an extensive traumatic brain injury when the right side of her head was crushed as a result of being hit broadside by an F-350 pickup truck. After spending almost two years in outstanding rehab facilities, Kris was sent to a nursing home for a few weeks until another approved facility was available. Afew weeks became eight months, and our daughter deteriorated measurably. It was deplorable. Some organizations have seen the need, have stepped up to the plate, and are already answering the call by providing one-to-one care along with rigorous daily therapy from highly skilled therapists. One such organization is CORE (Center Of Rehabilitation Excellence), which has several small facilities in the state of Texas. Our daughter was sent to a CORE home in July 2012, and she is excelling. The months of struggling and often demeaning care she received prior to going to CORE is but one part of the poignant story that cries out for change. Dignity is key. Adeployment of 550 of Highlands Countys National Guard left in midFebruary. Many were young mothers as well as young fathers. While our heartfelt prayers and hopes go with them that none will come to harm, unfortunately, some may return with wounds that may take years to heal. The State of Florida is already home to one of the largest older veteran populations. We are in a new era of veterans and a new kind of home is whats needed for those brave men and women who put themselves in harms way to defend this countrys freedoms. Freedom is not free.

OB ITUARIES Norman Continued from A2 COMMUNITYBRIEFS Women soldiers not served well by some parts of VA health system over 75 incidents of criminal mischief that occurred last weekend throughout Highlands County, a press release from the HCSO said Thursday. These persons u sed BB guns to shoot glass windows out at numerous locations causing significant d amage. Sheriff (Susan e xpressed the gratitude of the community as the agencies worked together on this case. She said, Thank you, team, for utilizing all of your resources to find these b ad guys. Of the 75 cases, many will be felony charges due to the damage inflicted on the businesses, the HCSO release said. Additional charges that may be levied include firing a deadly missile into a building and grand theft. This joint investigation e xhibited the great working r elationship of the Highlands C ounty Sheriff's Office, Sebring Police Department and the Lake Placid Police Department. Investigators from each agency spent many hours working very hard for the businesses throughout HighlandsC ounty, Lake Placid Police C hief James Fansler said in t he press release. That hard work resulted i n giving some closure to many businesses owners who face the financial burden of replacing the glass in their businesses. When detectives from all three agencies met on Tuesday to compile their findings in these cases, a silver minivan emerged as a likely suspect vehicle. Other information led the detectives to believe there were three white male subjects in connection with this vehicle. The information gathered by detectives was provided to the Sheriffs Office SafeN eighborhood Unit (SNU b e on the lookout for this p articular vehicle and subj ects. Tuesday evening, SNU member Deputy Sheriff Jason Mulligan observed a vehicle matching the description of the potential suspect vehicle and was able to conduct a traffic stop. The occupants of this vehicle also matched thed escription of the subjects p rovided by the detectives. I nformation garnered through that traffic stop was provided to detectives from all three agencies who took the investigation from there and interviewed the subjects. Information from the interviews led detectives to believe they had the right persons in this case, the release said. C ontinued from A1 Window suspects identified leading up to Andersons filing a complaint against him,c harging misuse of power with a goal of putting him out of business. In a letter dated Nov. 26, 2012 to Kenny Long, ownero f Longs Air Conditiong Inc., Anderson wrote he faced a bill of $58,000 to $162,000 to repair or replace equipment lost during ap ower surge. Anderson writes, Due to the fact the damage was directly caused by negligent workmanship ...I would like to pursue comp ensation ... Long replied in a letter dated Nov. 29 that his elec-t rician had found a loose wire, not one improperly installed. Garrett, LongsA ir Conditioning Inc. is not responsible for your probl ems; we did not perform negligent workmanship. You owe me an apology. If youa re man enough to do so. On Jan. 22, Long wrote to D eleon requesting an investigation of Garrett Anderson for using his public office position unethically, for purely personal reasonsa nd/or private gain and said Anderson was harassing h im to get insurance information in order to file a claim. A t one point, Long said, Anderson used his office of c ity councelor to obtain insurance information Long repeatedly refused to hand o ver. Long also warned Deleon about deficient, unpermitted wiring at Anderson Arms. Because of the dangerousn ature of the ammunitionmaking business, this information caused concern. At the press conference, Deleon told the media it wasa t this time the city became involved. Having learned from earlier experiences regarding city staff and elected officials,t he city decided to keep out of the situation, asking outside agencies to step in instead. Deleon produced corres pondence between himself and City Attorney Gerald Buhr consulting on how toh andle the situation. It was decided it should be up to Long to carry the com-p laint to the Highlands County Sheriffs Office or t he state ethics committee. Around this time street gossip circulated thatA nderson had said if his building blew, it would take o ut three city blocks. The News-Sun made numerous unsuccessful attempts to identify anyone who actually heard Anderson make thatc omment. Anderson was given an opportunity to r espond to the rumor during the city council meeting Monday. He avoideda ddressing the issue. As the gossip spread the c ity became concerned it might have a serious safety issue at hand. D eleon reached out to the county in a Jan. 25 letter, asking building inspector S.Y. Mosley to inspect Anderson Arms to see if the business posed a danger to the neighborhood. In his inspection Mosley found a extensive, unpermitted wiring throughout the building. In his complaint against Deleon to the state ethics committee, filed March 12, Anderson wrote, He (Deleon. Mosley and Mr. (David Cloud (Avon Park fire captain and fire inspector) that their jobs would be in jeopardy if they did not comply with his demands and a comp laint with Anderson Arms. T hursday, Deleon produced a memo from Public Safety Director Jason Lister to Cloud dated Feb. 5. It says, As a matter of policy City of Avon Park Public Safety staff will not investigate complaints against city elected officials. Deleon added that as a county employee, Mosley has nothing to do with him, so there was no way Deleon could have threatened him with his job. The News-Sun reaching A nderson in person Wednesday. Anderson refused to comment, sayingh e was preparing a release a nd only wanted to have to tell his side of the story one time. As of press time Thursday, the News-Sun had not heard from him.

C M Y K neighboring landowners. County Attorney RossM acBeth began to formulate the provision and continued with the project as the meeti ng continued. As discussion ensued a bout that and other conditions,Commissioner Jim Brooks made a motion to deny the request altogether. Commission Chairman JackR ichie passed the gavel to Vice-Chairman Greg Harris and offered a second,launching into a long,sometimes disjointed explanation of his vote against the facility,citing television reports about as imilar facility in Charlotte County known as the R edneck Yacht Club. The story that Richie cited outlined such things as stripper poles,fights,drugs and underage drinking. We will have the same problems here and I will not be a part of it,said Richie. Brooksmotion failed on a 3-2 vote. T hat was followed by remarks from Harris,who gave an impassioned defense of the Swamp Hammock project and the hoops that developers had jumped through to please opponents and county staff. He then moved for approval the staff recommendation on the issue. Commissioner Don Elwell seconded that motion for discussion purposes,using the opportunity to outline a number of concerns he wanted addressed in regard to the facility. Those ranged from suggested hours of operation to the numbers of events and even the suggested means of fencing on the property. It was during those deliberations that MacBeth informed commissioners Harrismotion would do little more than approve the staff report. The board attorney said much more would be n eeded in terms of specifics included in a resolution that could be passed to permit thez oning change for the group. ou will actually approve nothing by your vote,he s aid. How can we get this far a nd nobody catch this? Harris asked. ouve been taking public input,MacBeth replied. Highlands County Zoning S upervisor Linda Conrad countered that the staffs report indeed contained a r ecommended action,including the resolution with conditions as well as a site plan, Harris then moved to amend his motion to includet he resolution and site plan, but that died for lack of a second as other commissioners a pparently still had concerns needing to be addressed. Brooks pointed out that a zoning change would be a permanent measure,whichc ould only be changed by a request from the property owner. A s the board began working on modifications and variations of proposed condi-t ions,Handley made a motion that commissioners deny the zoning change r equest and,instead,pass a special events permit,ment ioning Brookspoint about the permanent nature of a zoning change. Elwell then asked if this motion didnt just take thec ommission back to the exact same place they were over a year ago when hed proposed a temporary use permit in a county commission meeting on the facility. But after fur-t her discussion,Handles motion was passed by a 4-1 margin,with Harris dissenti ng. At the end of the meeting, c hairman Jack Richie told county staff to get to work on formulating a special events ordinance,and return that language to the commissiona s quickly as possible. No exact time frame was set for that next step. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, March 29, 2013Page A7 SFCC-COMMUNITY RELATIONS; 9.347"; 11"; Black plus three; process, tv p/u; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 8 8 0 0 2 2 2 2 64 WEST COLLISION; 1.736"; 2"; Black plus three; tv p/u; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 8 8 0 0 2 2 4 4 the Relay for Life event.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK South Florida head coach Rick Hitt knows what it takes for his baseball squad to be competitive, having stated we need good pitching and to keep games close. Were not going to hit a lot of three-run homers, so we need to limit our mistakes. That is certainly not what the Panthers did Wednesday, in dropping a 14-3 Suncoast Conference contest to the visiting State College of Florida. The first-place Manatees got their first run on the board without the benefit of a hit, as two walks and two errors got them on the board. Two singles and a sacrifice fly in the top of the second extended the lead to 2-0 before the visitors all but put it away in the third. With the bases loaded and nobody out, Hitt brought the infield in, but saw a bouncer up the middle score two. One out later, a walk reloaded the bases and a potential double-play was thrown away to score two more. This was followed by another two-run single and the lead now stood at 8-0. The Panthers finally scratched for one in the fourth on a Lane Crosson RBI grounder, and another in the fifth when Lucas Bagnara brought Carlos Matamoros in. But the Manatees added three more in their half of the fifth to make it an 11-2 marLady Panthers sweep St. Pete Wednesday, March 20 marked the first official day of spring, and its eems only fitting to offer up my suggestions for the top five best bass fishing lures and techniques to u se during this time of the year. E very year, along with o ther fishermen, I complain that the weather is screwed up too hot, too cold, too much rain, not enough rain, too much wind, etc. The truth is, seasonally speaking; the weather is very much the same, year after year. What most fishermen dont take into account is that our temperature highs and lows, amount of rainfall and even wind conditions are all based on averages. Taking into account whats happened over the past years creates a wide range of possibilities that are then averaged to give us what the conditions should be on any given day. Exceptions to these averages are rare. The seasonality of weather provides different fishing opportunities and spring is one of my favorites. Unlike any other time of the year, largemouth bass are actively seeking shallow, warmer water for their annual spawn. That, combined with more aggressive feeding, makes them extremely vulnerable to being caught by a knowledgeable fisherman. Im sure anybody that fishes could rank what they consider to be the top five lures to use during this time of the year, and for many of you, they may be different than those thatI recommend. 1. Suspended Jerk Baits: These long, slender baits, often made of balsa wood or plastic are an extremely versatile bait for early spring bass fishing when the water is at its cold and warming gradually. Most are designed to run no deeper than 6 feet, but unlike other lures, the key to their success is that when you stop retrieving the lure, it will suspend at the depth its at, allowing an interested bass to move in for the kill. Long, painstakingly slow retrieves, combined with a stop and go action will provide the best results. My personal favorite i s the Mega bass VISION One Ten, 4 1/3-inch GP Pro Blue II. 2. Tube Baits: Nothing compares to the effectiveness of tube baits for spawning bass. Tubes are nothing new, but in the past, as effective as they were, one strike and the bait was typically torn to shreds. I recommend the Zoom Salty Super Tube in either the 3 1/2-inch or 4 1/2inch size. These baits are hand dipped for a thicker, tougher body and will takea number of strikes without tearing. The tantalizing plastic tentacles make this bait irresistible to bass. 3. Plastic Worms: Plastic worms are one of the best bass baits year round, but early in the Spring, when the water is around 60 degrees, smaller plastic worms work best. Ive always been under the impression the smaller worms work better because they mimic food sources that are typically smaller at this time of the year. As the water temperatures warm, the length of the worm should increase. My personal favorite, a blue/black Yum Dinger. These worms come in various sizes, 4-, 5-, 6and 7-inches. Similar to the tube bait, the smaller Yum Dingers will drive a bass mad coming across their beds in full sunlight. 4. Spinnerbaits: Although effective throughout the year, spinnerbaits worked slow witha stop and go retrieve can be extremely deadly early in the fishing year. My favorite is the HARTX2 Spinner bait, available in 3/8, 1/2 and 3/4 ounce. Unlike conventional spinnerbaits, the X2 has dual arms, each with its own blades. Color selections are great, although at this time By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comW hile the temperatures remained frigid Tuesday night, the Avon Park bats heated things up and got the Red D evils back on the winning track with a 10-4 battering of v isiting Booker. T yrone Perry sparked the offense with three hits, falling just a triple short of hitting for the cycle, two runs scored and three RBI, while Gio Gomez threw six strong innings, scattering six hits and striking out four to halt a four-game losing streak. After the Tornadoes scratched for a run in the top of the first, Avon Park answered back with a Perry double, Josh Gomez getting hit by a pitch and a Steven Flowers walk to load the bases. Atriple steal then took place, with Perry sliding in safely to even the game at 1-1. After a scoreless top of the second, the Devils again proved daring as a Colton Brock suicide squeeze scored Mason Jahna from third for a 2-1 lead. Awalk, single and pair of errors allowed Booker to tie it up in the third, but Avon Park was about to explode and put the game away in the fourth. Kyle Kelley got it started by reaching second on an error and moving to third on a bunt single by Jahna. ACody Pearlman base knock scored Kelley and another squeeze bunt by Brock brought Jahna in for a 4-2 lead. Alfred Brown then singled to bring Pearlman in and after a couple of stolen bases, Brown also came in to score on an error. Perry then unloaded on a pitch for a towering homer over the right-field wall for a 7-2 lead. And they kept things going when Flowers was hit by a pitch and moved to third on a Torri Pringle single. Flowers would soon come in to score on an error and the lead stood at 8-2. Apair of errors allowed for a Tornado run in the top of the fifth, but the Devils got that run, plus another, back in the bottom of the frame. With Jahna and Brock on second and third, Perry singled to center to score them both and the lead stood at 10-3. Apair of singles and a sacrifice fly got Booker one more run, but that would be it as Kenny McGrath came on in relief and worked a perfect seventh to secure the win. Now 12-6 on the season, Avon Park hosted Bradentons Bayshore High School Thursday night at Head Field. See Sundays News-Sun for a recap of the action. SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, March 29, 2013 Page B4 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Seth Abeln connects for an infield single on this pitch, and would add a double later. But a six-run Manatee third would pave the way to a 14-3 State College of Florida win over the Panthers of South Florida State Wednesday night. News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Jimmy Peck had a pair of doubles Tuesday night, but it wasnt enough as Sebring fell to visiting Oviedo. News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Tyrone Perry belted a home run among his three hits Tuesday night in helping Avon Park end its four-game losing streak. By TAYLOR TUBBS News-Sun correspondentTheres always a positive we can take from a loss, said Sebring head coach Buck Rapp. A loss provides an opportunity for learning, and on Tuesday night the Streaks were given this opportunity when they took on the Oviedo High School Lions. Oviedo is a good team, said Rapp. And its tough to have two games in a row like we did. On Monday night the Streaks walked away with a huge, 12-0 victory over county rival Avon Park at Firemans Field, but in their repeat home game on Tuesday night Sebring fell short of the victory with a 73 loss. J onathon Struck pitched a quality first five innings and was able to keep the score a close 3-1. C.J. Payne stepped in to cover the final two innings, and heading into the top of the seventh the score became an even more closely contested 3-2.

C M Y K of the year I prefer the X2 in white with gold Colorado blades. I also use a split tail white plastic grub with a trailer hook for short strikes. 5. Rapala: No top five would be complete without the Rapala. This lure comes in so many sizes and shapes its no wonder that it holds more world record titles than any other lure ever created. With the wide variety of sizes and shapes, I prefer the Rapala Scatter Rap Minnow,4 3/8-ince, 3/16 ounce in silver. This bait will catch fish when nothing else seems to work. Aslow, steady retrieve with occasional stops will create incredible strikes from bass in shallow water. So there you have it, my top five baits for Spring Fishing. I could have written about my top 10, or even my top 20 best lures for this time of the year, but space is limited. The truth is, there are dozens of lures that work equally as well as the few that Ive mentioned. For flipping, the Medlock Jig, other jig and pig combinations, as well as imitation plastic worms, crayfish and other creature baits all work well this time of the year. In addition, Swim baits have grown increasingly more popular over the past couple of years and with good reason. These soft plastic, imitation fish, rigged properly with a weighted hook can provide some phenomenal fishing in areas with submerged vegetation. Buck Perry often stated that color makes no difference to a fish, and although I agree that hes probably correct, I think color does makea difference to the fishermen. So many times Ive heard the fish are hitting on watermelon or green pumpkin or junebug colored worms and I always ask the same question. Did you try any other color? And the answer is typically no. Most fishermen look at me as though Im crazy to even ask, but I remind them that if they caught their fish on a certain color and didnt try any other color, maybe the fish had just gotten active and it had nothing to do with the color. Who knows? But fishing is all about confidence. Confidence in the lake, confidence in your equipment and confidence in your lure selection. And confidence typically comes from experience. Its hard to imagine arming yourself with a lure that youve never caught a fish on, using equipment youve never used before, and being on a lake youve never fished. Its also all about getting out on the water. We are blessed to live in Highlands County where our biggest decisions are which lake to fish. With more than 100 freshwater lakes and rivers, making that decision will ultimately determine our choice of lures.

Ive tried medicat ions,but I want something natural. Suggestions? P.T.,Denver,Colo. Answer: There are many natural supplements that arek nown to help insomnia among them GABA,kava, valerian root,catnip, glycine,hops and melatonin. ll discuss the last three in todays column. Let me start with the simp le amino acid,glycine, which helps people suffering w ith Huntingtons,certain seizure disorders and memory loss. Like a blanket of calm,it helps you achieve deepers tages of sleep. Unlike most sleeping pills,glycine should not give you a groggy morning hangoveruntil noon,norw ill it result in dry mouth (very common with diphenhydramine sleep aids). Usually two to three grams taken an hour before bed time allows sleep to crawl into bed with you. As an interesting aside, research points to glycines use as an antibiotic,specifically against H. pylori,an organism associated with ulcers and stomach cancer. Even though glycine is found in meat,you wont get enough of its sleep-inducing effects unless you supplement. Capsules are available,but powders may be better if you want to titrate your dose. For those of you who love beer,one of the bitteringi ngredients is Humulus lupulus. Say that three times fast. W e call it Hopsherb for short. Without hops,beer would be sweet. (Hey, maybe I would like it then?!) Anyway,hops (as opposed tob eer) helps people fall asleep faster,and is one of the best insomnia remedies I can think of. Its been used for centuries. W hile Hops is safe for human consumption,it can be quite harmful for dogs,so keep away from Fido. The FDA gave hops GRAS status,which means it is generally recognized as safe. Theres an ingredient in hops called 8-prenylnaringenin or 8-PN that reduces the incidence of hot flashes. Aside from helping with menopausal concerns and insomnia,hops is touted to ease anxiety,earaches and cramps. An ingredient in it works as a COX 2 inhibitor, similar to the drug Celebrex so if you are in pain,this may be useful. For many night-time t hrashers,its a question of how much melatonin you s ecrete from your pineal gland. Melatonin production can be augmented if you supplement,because the pills (ors ublingual sprays) get absorbed into your bloodstream and trigger the same sleep reaction as if you had made the hormone yourself. For some,melatonin supplements are highly effective.F or others,it must be combined with glycine,hops, v alerian root or kava. I always suggest low dosages, about 0.2 to 0.3 mg per night,but you will find many supplements contain-i ng more. Be very careful with yourself; this is a hormone. That said,melatonin has a widespread (wonderful) effect ont he immune system and specifically awesome for people with auto-immune disorders and chronic infections. All of the supplements discussed today are sold at health food stores and some pharmacies,but always ask your doctor whats right for you.

Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen By RICARDO ALONSOZALDIVAR A ssociated PressWASHINGTON A new study finds that insurance companies will have to pay out an average of 32p ercent more for medical claims under President Barack Obamas health care overhaul. What does that mean for you? I t could increase premiums for at least some A mericans. If you are uninsured,or you buy your policy direct-l y from an insurance company,you should pay attent ion. But if you have an employer plan,like most workers and their families, odds are you dont havem uch to worry about. The estimates from the S ociety of Actuaries could turn into a political headache for the Obamaa dministration at a time when much of the country r emains skeptical of the Affordable Care Act. The administration is q uestioning the study,saying it doesnt give a full picture and costs will go d own. Actuaries are financial r isk professionals who conduct long-range cost estimates for pension plans, insurance companies and government programs. T he study says claims costs will go up largely because sicker people will join the insurance pool. Thats because the law forbids insurers from turning down those with pre-exist-i ng medical problems, effective Jan. 1. Everyone g ets sick sooner or later,but sicker people also use more health care services. Claims cost is the most important driver of healthc are premiums,said Kristi Bohn,an actuary who worked on the study. Spending on sicker people and other high-cost groupsw ill overwhelm an influx of younger,healthier people into the program,said the report. The Obama administration challenged the design of the study,saying it focused only on one piece of the puzzle and ignored cost relief strategies in the law,such as tax credits to help people afford premiums and special payments to insurers who attract an outsize share of the sick. The study also doesnt t ake into account the potential price-cutting effect of competition in new state insurance markets that will go live Oct. 1,administra-t ion officials said. At a White House briefing Tuesday,Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said some of what passes forh ealth insurance today is so skimpy it cant be comp ared to the comprehensive coverage available under the law. Some of thesef olks have very high catastrophic plans that dont p ay for anything unless you get hit by a bus,she said. There really mortgage protection,not health insurance. S ebelius said the picture on premiums wont start c oming into focus until insurers submit their bids. Those results may not bep ublicly known until late summer. A nother striking finding of the report was a wide disparity in cost impacta mong the states. While some states will see medical claims costs p er person decline,the report concluded that the o verwhelming majority will see double-digit increases in their individual health insurance markets,where people purchase coveraged irectly from insurers. The differences are big. By 2017,the estimated increase would be 62 percent for California,about 80 percent for Ohio,more than 20 percent for Floridaa nd 67 percent for Maryland. Much of the reas on for the higher claims costs is that sicker people are expected to join the pool,the report said. Part of the reason for the w ide disparities is that states have different populations and insurance rules. In the relatively small number of states where insurersw ere already restricted from charging higher rates to older,sicker people,the cost impact is less. The report did not make similar estimates for employer plans that most workers and families rely on. Thats because the primary impact of Obamas law is on people who dont have coverage through their jobs.

Pine St. in Sebring. All of the community is welcome. This Sunday is resurrection Sunday,but do you know that Jesus prophesiedo n Thursday about his f uture? H i,my name is Pastor Reinhold Buxbaum from The Church of the Waya nd Id like a word with you. It was Thursday night, when Jesus and his disciples were in the Upper Room, celebrating communion. It was then that Jesus told the disciples,I tell you,I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until thatd ay when I drink it anew with you in my fathers kingdom.(Matthew 26:29 NIV) M any Bible scholars b elieve that Jesus was referring to the Wedding Supper of the Lambfrom Revelation 19:9. It is a feast that Jesus will celebrate with all true believers from all tribes and nations in heaven while the seven years of tribulation is coming to an end. What an incredible wonderful event that will be! Some time later that day, Jesus made a short-term prophecy about his resurrection. In John 16:16,Jesus tells his disciples:In a little while you will not see me no more,and then after a little while you will see me. From Friday until Sunday m orning Jesusbody lay dead in the tomb. Then Jesus r ose from the dead and that Sunday evening Jesus showed himself to his disci-p les. It was earlier that same week that Jesus took his disciples up on the Mount ofO lives and briefed them concerning the year 70 A.D., when the Romans would destroy Jerusalem and the temple,When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies,you will know that its desolation is near: Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains...(Luke 20:20). Jesus also warned about a coming time when a world leader will go into the future temple and desecrate it by proclaiming himself to be god (Matthew 24:15). Jesus was also referring to the prophet Daniel,who prophesied that this world leader will confirm a contract with Israel for a seven-year perio d (Daniel 9:27 This prophecy is still in the future,but since Israel is back in its land (1948 since Jerusalem is back in the hands of the Jews (1967) and since voices for a third temple are getting stronger,J esusprophecy of the Passion Week might be just around the corner! A Jewish group by the name of Temple Institute has already finished some 150 articles found in the Temple. They even re-discovered the crimson worm,n eeded to give the priests 1 6-meter belt the biblical crimson color. The first har vest by the temple institute of the crimson worm happened on July 16,2008. Jesusprophecies in the Passion Week were truly remarkable and are pointing to his soon return! Yes,the stage is set for our rapture!

Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. Feasting with Jesus in heaven and on earth RELIGION S everal years ago,a radio program out of Michigan reported the following true story on the air. It involveda man who bought a brand n ew Jeep Grand Cherokee for $30,000. As a result of his purchase on credit,he ended up with monthly loan pay-m ents of $400. After his purchase,the owner and a friend decidedt o go duck hunting. Because it was winter,all of the lakes were frozen.T he two men went to one of those lakes with their guns, a dog,and,of course,the new vehicle. They drove out onto the lake of ice,u npacked their gear,and got ready to hunt. T he two men wanted to make some kind of a natural landing area upon which the ducks and the decoys could float. I n order to make a hole large enough to look like s omething a wandering duck would fly down and land on,it was going tot ake a little more than a hand-held ice drill. So,out o f the back of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee came a stick of dynamite with a s hort,40-second fuse. Now,these two rocket scientistsactually did take into consideration not to place the stick of dynamiteo n the ice at a location where they were standing (or where the new Jeep Grand Cherokee was parked). They also certainlyd id not want to risk slipping on the ice when they r an from the burning fuse and possibly go up in s moke from the resulting blast. So,they decided to light the forty-second fusea nd throw the dynamite far away. R emember the dog? Yes, the dog was a highlytrained black labrador usedf or retrieving (especially things thrown by his mast er). You guessed it! When the stick of dynamite was thrown,the dog took off ata high rate of doggy speed over the ice and captured itw ith 30 seconds left on the 40-second fuse. T he two men yelled, screamed,and waved their arms in the air. The dog,c heered on by his master and friend,kept coming. O ne of the men grabbed a shotgun and shot the dog. The shotgun,which was l oaded with No. 8 duck shot,was hardly enough to stop the big,black lab.The dog,however,did stop for a moment,slightly confused.W ith the burning fuse really short now and scared that he might be shot again,the dog took off to find cover the only cover available under the brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee. B OOM! Both dog and vehicle w ere blown to bits and sank to the bottom of the lake through a very large hole, leaving the two men standing there with dumbfound-e d looks on their faces. To add insult to injury, the insurance company told the owner of the Jeep Grand Cherokee that sinking av ehicle in a lake by illegal use of explosives was not covered under his insurancep olicy. And,to top things off, the bank said that he stillh ad to make those $400 monthly loan payments! W e read in Ephesians 5:15-17,Therefore be careful how you walk,nota s unwise men but as wise, making the most of your t ime,because the days are evil. So then do not be foolish,but understand what the will of the Lord is. There may not be anyt hing technically wrong with driving your new Jeep G rand Cherokee onto a lake of ice with your friend,a dog,and stick of dynamite,b ut it is not the WISE thing to do! Live your life for G od in the same way. Do not try to determine only what is technically r ight or wrong,but read the Bible and try to understand what the will of the Lord is.That is wisdom.

C M Y K Are you one of those kinds of women that area fraid to let people know who you are? Do you look different than the others? Are you ashamed because of things you have done ort hings that have been done to you? For some reason,it seems as though the other women are better than you. If you can relate,you are n ot alone. There was a woman just like you and I from a land,called Samaria.I think you might know who Im talking about. She has often been referred to as theS amaritan woman at the well found in John 4. O ne evening in the hottest part of the day the woman went to draw some waterf rom the well. It is apparent that no one else was around e xcept for a man who had stopped to take a break because He was tired from walking for so long. In verse 7,Jesus said to h er,Give Me a drink Why would He have shown a ny interest or acknowledged her? After all,she was different. She questioned them an in verse 9,w is it that You,being a Jew,ask m e for a drink since I am a S amaritan woman?(For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.) Can you relate to the way this woman must have been feeling? I wonder if shew alked with her head down at the ground and had a hard t ime looking up at the man when He asked her for a drink. By the way,this manw as not just any man. He was Jesus! Keep in mind, t he woman did not know this yet. Verse 10 says,Jesus answered and said to her,If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says toy ou,Give Me a drink,you would have asked Him,and H e would have given you living water.What was this gift and living water thatJ esus was talking about? The Samaritan woman a sked the man if He was better than the man who dug the well and who drank from ith imself and his cattle. In verse 13,Jesus answered and said to her,Everyone who drinks of this water shall thirst again; but whoeverd rinks of the water that I shall give him shall become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life. She instantly became veryi nterested. Could you imagine what it would feel like to never feel thirsty? In verse 15,the Samaritan would said to Jesus,,give me this water,so I will not bet hirsty,nor come all the way here to draw. B esides telling this man that she was interested in this water that could quenchh er thirst for eternity,was more needed than simply t elling Him she was interested? Verse 16 says that He said to her,Go call your husband,and come here. Continuing on in verse 17a nd 18,the woman answered and said,I have n o husband.Jesus said to her,ou have well said, have not husband;for youh ave had five husbands,and the one whom you now have i s not your husband; this you have said truly. At this point,the woman r ecognized that He was Jesus,the Messiah because He knew the truth about her and her sin. However,the difference between this par-t icular man and the others was that He loved her unconditionally in a way that no else could or would. What was needed on her partw as to see her need for Her Savior and recognize that she was a sinner. Romans 3:23 says,or all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. F rom this point,the Samaritan woman became a t rue worshipper of God in spirit and truth at the feet Jesus. If you can relate tot he woman at the well,I pray that you will be able to l ift your head up and see the love in your Fathers eyes and know He loves your regardless of the mistakes you have made.

C M Y K Dear Abby: My boyfriend and I have been dating for several months. Hes fun and caring,and we spend a lot of time together. Hes different from other boys I have dated. We can talk to each other about anything. My only concern is our relationship physically. He makes it very clear that he wants to go all the way with me. He isnt rude or pushy about it. I dont want to rush into anything. We are both virgins (he does have more experience),and while I have known him for a long time,I dont know him as well as Id like. I want to wait until we have dated for at least six months. He says he respects my decision and says he doesnt want to pressure me.I still feel a little rushed. All of our friends have had sex, but I dont want it to be about our hormones in the heat of the moment. I hate saying no to him. I know he wont leave me,butI feel bad for leaving him frustrated. Would it be wrong to agree to having sex with him something we both want even if I dont know if were ready for the next step? Unsure in Canada Dear Unsure: Yes,it would be wrong. The first time you have sex it should be because you are 100 percent sure you are ready,and he is the right person. If thats not the case, you will be cheating yourself. And as for feeling guilty because you are leaving him frustrated I have a solution. Socialize with him in group settings and spend less time alone together. \ Dear Abby: I am a single mother raising a 15-year-old son. For most of his life it has just been the two of us. I now regret that I put him in bed with me when he was a baby. As he grew older,I encouraged him to sleep in his own bed,but it would last only a few nights,and then he would sneak back into my room. I was married for three years when he was around 11,and hed sneak into my husbands and my bedroom after we were asleep and sleep on a couch in there. His problem is he is terrified of the dark and believes in ghosts,monsters,etc. He says he has a phobia and I believe him. I tried getting a dog for him to sleep with and night-lights,but nothing worked. If I lock him out,he lays awake all night,scared to death. I kept thinking he would grow out of this,but he hast. Please help. I cant really afford therapy,but if you think he needs it,I will try. Troubled in Arizona Dear Troubled: Some sessions with a psychologist who specializes in phobias would be the quickest way to help your son overcome his problem. And when you consult with one,I am sure the therapist will recommend that your son stay away from violent video games,and movies or television shows that feature ghosts,monsters or anything else that goes bump in the dark because they could only increase his fears. Dear Abby: Im different from other girls. I dont wear girly clothes. I prefer dark clothes and makeup. My mom thinks Im strange because I dress differently. Do you think I look like a freak for not conforming,or is there nothing wrong with being different? Different in Washington Dear Different: I would never call you a freak because of your attire. It is common for young people to express their individuality by their dress,hairstyle and makeup. There is,however,a point when a persons style choices can be limiting. My question for you would be,Are you getting the kind of attention you WANT from presenting yourself this way?The answer should determine how you choose to dress. \Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

DIVERSIONS By BOB GARVER Special to the News-SunLongtime readers know that I have a soft spot fora nimated movies. Sometimes when I go on a streak of bad r eviews,people will ask me if I ever praise anything. Ill point to some delightful ani-m ated films and then those people will roll their eyes a nd say,Okay,besides them. I keep hoping to see an a nimated Best Picture Oscar winner,and I consider it a grievous oversight that Wreck-it Ralphwasnt even nominated for the a ward for 2012. The Croodsis the first major animated feature of 2013, and it is proof that animation can be just as boring as allm anner of live-action junk. The story follows a family of cave-dwellers,led by Grug (Nicolas Cages main concern is the survival of his family,which he maintains by keeping every-o ne cooped up in a cave where nothing can harm t hem. This doesnt sit well with his daughter Eep (the aptly-named Emma Stone), who,like so many animated heroines,wants to go ona dventures and see the world. She sneaks out one night and meets a guy named Guy (Ryan Reynolds) who vaguely warns her of an upcoming apocalypse. A symptomatic earthquake soon destroys the Croodscave,and the familyj oins up with Guy to venture to a new home on a distant mountain. The whole situation drives Grug crazy because he hates leaving the cave and encountering new things. He also doesnt liket he way the family (especially Eep) takes to the forwardt hinking Guy. Grug is opposed to the very idea of ideas. The human cast is extremely small. TheresG rug,Eep,and Guy,then theres Grugs traitless wife Ugga (Catherine Keener), sassy mother-in-law Gran (Cloris Leachmandimwitted son Thunk (Clark Duke), and an infant daughter who just grunts instead of talking. Everything else is a prehis-t oric animal. The story could have used a villain,the close st we get are natural predators who want nothing more than a nosh. And evena mong them some of them turn out to be friendly. T he obligatory message of the film is that you shouldnt go through life hiding in ac ave and playing it safe. I cant accuse the film of tacking onthis message s ince it hits us over the head with it in almost every s cene. There are also some agreeable messages about the importance of family and perseverance,and some muddier stuff about chasingt he sun and its tomorrows or some nonsense. The humor is uninspired. A lot of the jokes involve beating a single character trait into the ground. The film never lets you forgett hat Thunk is dumb,Gran is crazy,and Grug is overprot ective (and also dumbThe worst gags are Flintstones knock-offs where the characters come up with modern technology using primitivem aterials. I cringed especially hard at the bits with conch shell cell phones. And whileI cant get too mad at gags with cuddly animals,please know that the film loves to have Guys pet sloth dramatically yell DUH-DUHD UHHHHHHHin a squeaky voice. T his gag has been shoved d own our throats in the films advertising,and sounds exactly the same in the feature film. Kids are p ractically encouraged to r epeat the phrase ad nauseam. You have been warned. A ctually,consider this your warning for The Croodsas a whole. Itsa nnoying and mostly unint eresting. The most involving thing about the film comes toward the end when a char-a cter decides to make a tremendous sacrifice. This is not to say that the film is inherently better in its bleakest moments,only that specific moments late in the film are more tender andp owerful than the scenes leading up to them. But mostly the film is just unfun-n y and unmemorable. Its as if the writers were living in a cave while humor was evolving. The Croodsis rated PG for some scary action. Its running time is 98 minutes.O ne and a half stars out of five. Contact Robert Garver at rrg251@nyu.edu/. Uninspired, annoying Croods should have stayed in cave Movie Review The Croods Rating: PG (some scary a ction) R unning time: 98 minutes R eview: (of 5 B y CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie CriticT he first image you see in The Place Beyond the Pinesis of Ryan Goslings shirtless torso,ripped and tatted atop a skin-tight pairo f leather pants. Dont get too excited. The long tracking shot that comes next is actually a better indication of whered irector and co-writer Derek Cianfrance is headed. His camera follows G oslings character from behind,Dardennes-style, through a garishly lightedt raveling circus. Goslings bleach-blonde Handsome L uklights a cigarette and strides calmly but purposefully through his depressings urroundings into a loud and crowded tent,where he c onfidently climbs onto a motorcycle before entering a ball-shaped cage with two other riders to perform a death-defying stunt. O ver the next two-plus hours and across three conn ected stories,it will become clear that everything is very dramatic ande veryone is doomed. You can try to redeem yourself b ut its no use; the past always catches up with us. Not a terribly novel concept b ut one that Cianfrance and co-writers Ben Coccio and Darius Marder hammer home with the utmost seriousness. G osling previously worked with the director on the 2010 drama Blue Valentine,in which he played the husband in ay oung married couple (opposite an Oscar-nomin ated Michelle Williams) that was slowly,irreparablyc rumbling. The Place Beyond the Pinesaims admirably for an epic sense of Greek tragedy,and it does haves ome powerful individual moments,but the characters are all so underdeveloped that the whole effort feels like studied posturing.R ather than helping to create a recognizable sense of place,the artful grunginess with which Schenectady, N.Y.,is depicted feels selfconscious and smothering. Thats down to the face tattoo Luke sports:a dagger with a drop of blood under his left eye,which is meant to look like a teardrop. (Once again,he is doing the quietly brooding Brando thing.) In this first section of Cianfrances triptych,Luke r uns into Romina (Eva Mendes),a waitress he had a fling with when he was in town a year ago. (Schenectady,FYI,means the place beyond the pinesin Iroquois.) Turnso ut her infant son is the child Luke was totally u naware he had. At the encouragement of a loner mechanic (an effectivelyc reepy Ben Mendelsohn), Luke starts robbing banks t o support the boy. This brings us to Bradley Cooper,who anchors the s econd section. Cooper and Goslings paths cross only briefly in one scene,but it is,of course,pivotal. Cooper plays rookie policeo fficer Avery Cross,who finds himself caught up with a group of more seasoned cops (led by Ray Liotta) who want to takeh im under their wing and make him part of their corr upt little gang. Finally,Cianfrance skips a head 15 years for part three. Luks son,Jason (now played by a wiry and intense Dane DeHaan),and Averys son,AJ (a swagger-i ng,trash-talking Emory Cohen),happen to cross paths themselves on AJs first day at a new high school. Of all the tables ina ll the lunchrooms in all the world,he has to sit down at Jasons. A palpable sense of danger permeates every moment they spend together but the coincidence is too clever,the parallel is too precious. Naturally,they are destined to have their legacies destroy them,too. Ultimately,none of this registers the way it should because its so monotonously morose.

Like family heirlooms,health beliefs tend to get passed from one generation to the next,even if they dont always make sense.A few,of course,are easy to discount once we put them to the test.For instance,my grandmother insisted that eating bread crusts would give me curly hair;it didnt.Others,however,are a lot harder to debunk through experience alone. We decided to put 10 persistent health beliefs under the microscope to determine if they have any merit.Heres what we found. Leslie Garisto Pfaff,FamilyFun magazineDONT SWIM FOR AT LEAST 30 MINUTES AFTER EATING When you eat,your body moves oxygen-rich blood to your digestive system; when you exercise, blood is redirected to your muscles. So,the notion goes,if you swim after downing that PB&J,your gut could be deprived of oxygen,which might lead to cramping and trouble swimming. However, ve never seen a patient who reported this problem,and Ive never read about it in a medical journal,says Dr. Jonathan Schreiber,a gastroenterologist at Baltimores Mercy Medical Center. Bottom line:While theres no evidence that swimming after eating has resulted in even a single drowning,it makes sense to avoid strenuous exercise on a full stomach.READING IN DIM LIGHT OR SITTING TOO CLOSE TO THE TV WILL HURT YOUR EYESYou can breathe easy:all those hours spent under the covers with a book and a flashlight or nose-to-nose with your favorite cartoon characters havent hurt your vision,and they wont hurt your childs either. The eyes are remarkably durable for reading,seeing and tracking,says Dr. John Hagan,an ophthalmologist and editor of Missouri Medicine. And kidseyes are even better than adultsat adjusting to different levels of light.Bottom line:Both practices could cause some minor but strictly temporary eyestrain.SWALLOWED GUM STAYS IN YOUR BODY FOR SEVEN YEARSDespite what you may have heard,the Hubba Bubba you swallowed as a kid didnt stick around for long. Although the main ingredient in gum is an indigestible synthetic base,it moves through the digestive tract at the same rate as any other food and isnt likely to get stuck in your intestines,says Dr. Mitchell Shub, a gastroenterologist at Phoenix Childrens Hospital.Bottom line:Always try to spit out your gum,but if you accidentally swallow it,just remember that it too shall pass.CHICKEN SOUP CAN CURE A COLDGrandma may have been on to something. Chicken soup has long been esteemed as a traditional remedy for colds,says integrative medicine expert Dr. AndrewWeil,And a growing body of evidence suggests theres more than folk wisdom at work here.A 1978 study,for example,found that sipping hot liquids,such as soup,helps temporarily clear clogged nasal passages. More recent research showed that chicken soup has the power to slow neutrophils,the white blood cells that cause many of your nastiest cold symptoms.Bottom line:It wont cure your cold,but a nice bowl of chicken soup might help you get over it faster and help you feel better while youve got it.D RINK AT LEAST EIGHT GLASSES OF WATER A DAYDr. Heinz Valtin,a retired Dartmouth Medical School professor who spent his career studying the mechanics of thirst,wondered where this rule got its start. His findings:After 10 months of very careful searching,I couldnt find its exact origin or any scientific evidence for the number eight whatsoever.And a more recent study showed that its difficult to upset the bodys finely tuned hydrating mechanism,whether you drink gallons a day or just a cup or two.Bottom line:K ids and adults need to stay hydrated,but if you live in a temperate climate and are not engaging in strenuous exercise,its probably fine to let your thirst dictate how much you drink versus strictly adhering to eight glasses. And keep in mind that water comes from lots of sources:juice,soups,veggies,fruits,even bread (a slice o f white bread,in fact,is one-third water!).AN APPLE A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAYI dont know if it would keep the doctor away,but your basic apple is a pretty good and healthful food,says Dr. Gerard Mullin,director of Integrative GI Nutrition Services at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Apples contain Vitamin C and are high in fiber,and there particularly abundant in quercetin,an antioxidant that revs up the immune system and helps protect against various diseases, including heart disease.Bottom line:Apples may help you stay healthy, but even an apple a day cant replace the benefits of a balanced diet. CARROTS ARE GOOD FOR YOUR EYESBugs Bunny didnt wear glasses,but his uncanny ability to spot a hunter at a hundred paces had nothing to do with his favorite food. While carrots do have a lot going for them, i ncluding fiber and vitamin A,eating them wont i mprove your vision. Truth is,the British Royal Air Force started this myth during World War II to explain its pilotsphenomenal success at locating enemy bombers in near-total darkness. In reality,it was the development of one of the first radar systems that gave the pilots super ior vision.B ottom line:If you dont get enough vitam in A,your vision can suffer. But vitamin A is stored in the body,says Dr. Clyde Kitchen, author of Fact and Fiction of Healthy Vision, so youd have to be on a starvation diet for a long time before youd run short of your natural reserves of it.S UGAR MAKES KIDS HYPERThis is one of the most pervasive health myths around. Its even s pawned a popular phrase:sugar buzz.But when researchers put it to the test,they found no evidence that sugar led to hyperactivity in kids or adults. So what turns an otherwise calm kid i nto a human pinball after an encounter with a birthday cake? Blame it on the excitement of the party or the caffeine in the soft drinks but not on the sugar in the cake.Bottom line:Sugar may have an effect on kids with established hyperactivity,but it wot make a nonhyperactive child hyperactive,says professor Richard Surwit,Ph.D., vice chair of the Department of Psychology and B ehavioral Science at Duke University.FEED A COLD,STARVE A FEVERThis one has been confounding folks for centuries. For one thing,half of us have it backward. Either way,s not good medicine,says Dr. David Donnersberger, a clinical instructor at Northwestern Universitys Feinberg School of Medicine. The saying may have arisen hundreds of years ago,when people believed illness was the result of the bodys being chilled (bringing on a coldverheated (a fever),and food was considered a fuel that could add more heat. In fact,says Dr. Donnersberger,during any infection,the body needs increased intake of calories and fluid.Bottom line:Feed a cold. And feed that fever too.GOING OUTSIDE IN THE COLD WITH WET HAIR WILL MAKE YOU SICKIf youd asked your doctor about this one a few years ago,she would have laughed and told you there was no correlation between the two. But a recent study in which half of the volunteers stuck their feet in ice water indicated that some people may be more susceptible to colds if they become chilled after exposure to a virus.Bottom line:Although its not definitive,your mom may have been right to nag you about wet hair. If youve run your immune system down chilling might be one way of doing that and youve been exposed to a virus,you could be more likely to come down with a cold, says Diana Noah,Ph.D.,a research virologist at Southern Research Institute.10652498PHOTOS BY P ETER N.FOX/ FAMILYFUN MAGAZINE3 7
