The event was a typical example of how IB students do more than read books and memorize facts.

C M Y K Thad Forester always knew his brother as Mark,e ven after he joined the U.S. Air Force. Pilots flying dang erous missions in Afghanistan,however,knew the 29-year-old Air Forcec ombat controller as JAG 28. Mark developed a great r elationship with the pilots, Thad,36,told The Unknown S oldiers. They tell me that he had such a great sense of humor,but he also commanded respect and knew what he was doing. S enior Airman Mark Forester didnt become a special operations warrior with a cool-sounding call sign overnight. His journey to a remote forward operating base in Afghanistan,w here he directed airstrikes and confronted some of A mericas worst enemies, was as long as it was improbable. He was serving a mission for our church at the time ofS ept. 11,Thad,one of Marks three older brothers, said. He was angered,he was outraged,and he felt like he needed to do some-t hing. It would be almost six years before Mark volunteered for the armed forces. Before he could serve his country at the highest level, the Haleyville,Ala.,native, wanted to strengthen his mind,body and relationship with God. Mark was pudgy and baby-faced with narrow shoulders,his big brother said. He got up to 230 pounds on the (church sion. As soon as Mark returned to Alabama,he hit the gym with a brand of intensity that surprised even those who knew him best. He was fully committed, Thad said. It was a drive d never seen in Mark before. After enlisting in 2007 and completing a grueling Air Force and special operations training regimen,Mark was hand-picked by senior officers for a crucial assignment at Afghanistans Forward Operating Base Tinsley. When he told us where he was going it didnt really mean anything to us,Thad said. All we knew was it was Afghanistan. The humble warrior didnt tell his family that being tapped to help defend theU ruzgan Province base, located in the heart of a dangerous,Taliban-infested combat zone,was a remarkable assignment for a senior airman going on his first deployment. He said Thad,dont tell anyone where Im going r ight now,but its a very active area and Ill have a lot of action,Thad said. It didnt really sink in ... at least to me ... I feel like Iw as so oblivious to everything. Mark never shared the details of an Aug. 6,2010, battle that earned him theB ronze Star with Valor or other instances where his actions saved American and Afghan lives. Like so many of this generations volunteer warriors,JAG 28 instead chose to lead by example. He had full awareness on the battlefield,Thad,who is researching his brothers deployment for an upcoming book,said. One of Marks teammates told me he got them what they needed not just bombs,but food. On Sept. 29,2010,Mark was on the second day of a combat mission when his units medic was shot by an enemy sniper. Without hesitating,JAG 28 ran toward his wounded comrade. That same day in Tuscaloosa,Ala.,Thad woke up with no premonition of his brothers final act of heroism. When they confirmed we were both home,they knocked on my parentsdoor first,Thad said. Then they knocked on my door and delivered the news to me and my wife. Senior Airman Mark Forester,the church missionary who transformed himself into a warrior,was killed while trying to save anotherm ans life. He was posthumously awarded the Silver S tar. The community sprung into action to support the Foresters,which deeplym oved Marks grieving parents and siblings. There were signs all over t own like thank you Mark Forester and your family a nd God Bless America, Thad said. Seven months before Navy SEALs killed Osama bin Laden,Mark devoted hisl ast full measure to a cause he believed in. While mourning,reflecting,and writing about his youngest sibling,Thad marvels at Marks metamorphosis from little brother to JAG 28. We all have missions on this earth and some of them a re different for each person,Thad said. One of Marks was to help defeat terrorism,and he did it.

Everyone is welcome; CO MMUNITYBRIEFS Continued on A5 Special to the News-SunS EBRING Wars and natural disasters dominate the world's daily headlines, but behind the scenes and far from the spotlight,h unger and preventable diseases claim the lives of more than 20,000 of the worlds children every day. Nearly 1 billion people goh ungry every day. More than 6 billion live on the planet. One in six will goh ungry tonight. Why so many? For some families,the only food theyh ave is whatever they can grow themselves. One d rought or flood can wipe out a years harvest. When it does,theres no super-m arket or food bank they can turn to. Others can b arely afford food despite their best efforts. Either way,hunger is anything but yesterdays problem. For 1 billion people,its a prob-l em right now. But world hunger is 100 percent prev entable,and teens from Faith Lutheran Church in Sebring are ready to help. O n April 26 and 27,they will be joining the efforts of h undreds of thousands of young people all over the nation who will set aside t he usual stufthat fills their daily lives. Instead, they will do World Visions 30 Hour Famine by going without food,and getting at aste of what the world's poorest children and families face every day. Prior to t he event weekend,students raise funds with the knowledge that every $30 they raise can help feed and care for a child for a month.G roups are also encouraged to perform hands-on service projects during the weekend in order to make a difference in their own communi-t ies. As part of the Famine, local participants will goi nto local communities to collect canned goods for Faiths Pantry and if thew eather holds out,a car wash to raise money to send t o World Vision. Funds raised by 30 Hour Famine participants helpf eed and care for children in communities in need a round the globe through World Vision. A portion of the funds raised assist families in need in the United States. Famine funds con-t ribute to World Visions response in areas where f amine,conflict,and other crises make children vulnerable to hunger and pre-v entable disease. Since 1992,30 Hour Famine has r aised close to $150 million,representing countless lives saved. World Vision w orks in nearly 100 countries,helping approximately 100 million people every year.

As the play opens town r esidents are grieving over the death of Miss Gertrude. H er funeral is about to take place. Well respected (even l oved) by town residents, everyone is sad at Miss Gertrudes passing. Well, everyone but old Mr. Mozel, whose only observation is, Im afixinto get sugar diabetes listento all this morbid sentiment drippinoutta your mouths. But then, Mr. Mozel, brought to grumpyl ife by Rich Shepard, doest like anyone. L ike in small towns all over the world, residents ares taggered when unexpected secrets are revealed by Miss Gertrudes death. The play i s about how the characters adapt to the new information. B Flat, the storys narrator, is played by Todd C oleman. B Flat makes his living doing odd jobs. For example, he collects cut hair from the beauty parlor and sells it for $5 a bag. Its aw ell know fact that if you put human hair in your attic, i tll keep the squirrels out, he tells the audience. While B Flat may be a s oda short of a six-pack, he is truly the wisest man in S econd Samuel. Coleman brings out B Flats innocence and compassion. J ennifer Westergom and George Miller play the married Marcela and Mansel. Marcela is a leader and sharp as a tack; Mansel is ah armless good old boy, and somewhat confused. The confusion might be because he was kidnapped by Nazis or maybe not. R eal life couple Amanda Mercer and Dewayne M ercer play Frisky and Omaha, another marriedc ouple in the play. Omaha owns the beauty emporium, Frisky owns the bar E very story needs a villain, or at least someone notn ice. Laura Wade, who has played many sweet heroines, t his time plays the character who is a well, it rhymes with witch. J et Hansen plays the town doctor, another voice of reason; Leonard Lakes plays U.S., B Flats best friend;H eather Hollan plays Ruby, a woman who finds courage a t Change of Life; and Steve Lundey is June, the towns mortician whose job hasm ade him more than a little nervous. Directed by Kristin Taylor, Second Samuel is a t rue ensemble piece. It moves quickly as characters play off of one another. T here is one drawback. The production is almost sold out. Only two perform-a nces have seats available: Friday, April 12 and Saturday the 13. T ickets are $15 for adults, and $10 for those 16-years old or under.

HLTvisits Second Samuel This particular experiment b egan when IB student Austin Dukes, who was preparing a new Facebook page for Mae Lee, read an article in the New YorkT imes about the new social media phenomenon of cash mobs. Excited by the idea, Dukes wanted to launch Mae Lees Facebook page with thea reas first such event. The general idea is to encourage people to go into small, local businesses and spend their money en masse, to give the business owner al ittle bit of stimulus, says cashmobs.com/. Word of a g athering is spread via social media sites like Facebook or Twitter. J ulie Giordino, who teaches economics for the IB prog ram, said the cash mob project began in class. We were looking into the challenges small businesses face in Highlands County, becausei s a seasonal economy Giordino said. We looked at t his as on opportunity to pay back the community while having a wonderful learninge xperience. DukesIB student partner, Matthew Brown, joined the p roject early working to get the word out through local mass media as well. Only radio did not get involved. Wednesday, Brown canvassed the students on handt o find out how each heard about the gathering. The n ews was a little disappointing from the social media perspective. By 2 p.m.,B rown discovered only one student had heard about the c ash mob through Twitter, and two through Facebook. The other students heard about the event the old-fashioned way: through word ofm outh. For her part Mae Lee was t hrilled. It was very, very successful, she told the News-Sun Thursday morn-i ng. Dukes and Brown look forward to the future. ere very excited, but w ould like to see even more turnout, Brown said. e expect to gain more people as time goes by Dukes said.

Heres the good news: There talking about giving us a tax break perhaps reducing the communications services tax that Floridiansp ay on their telephone and cable-TV bills,or offering a l onger sales tax holiday for in-store purchases. Heres the bad news: T here also talking about taxing online sales. Some l awmakers want to force Internet retailers such as Amazon to collect Floridas 6 percent sales tax. Politicians have been r eluctant to back an Internet tax. The latest thinking is that i f Internet sales are taxed but other taxes the phone and cable tax,for instance arer educed,the Internet tax will be revenue neutraland c ould win support. Sen. Nancy Detert,RVenice,is pushing for anI nternet tax. Senate President Don Gaetz,R-Niceville,said the other day her bill has a decent chance to make it. It also has the same old f laws. Florida-based businesses say companies whose online goods arent taxed have an unfair advantage. But salest ax revenue goes toward roads and water systems and other infrastructure,whichb enefits brick-and-mortar stores inside the state. Outof-state online retailers wills ee no benefit from a sales tax. THEN wholl have an a dvantage? Add to that the sheer complexity of the communica-t ions services tax. Paring it back to make an Internet tax revenue neutralmay be more difficult than some legislators think. If the state wants to lower our phone and cable taxes org ive us a longer sales tax holiday,terrific. But taking away o ne tax while hitting us with another is a crummy tradeoff.

TDC violates public trust againEditor: It seems there is no end to the arrogance and outright gall of our Highlands County Tourist Development Council (TDC it comes to ignoring their constituencs dictates. In 2001, Highlands County citizens voted to establish a 2 percent tax on visiting tourists in order to form the TDC and grow tourism in our county. Our citizens voted that no more than 29 percent (approximately one third) of the funds could be used to administer the program and 17 percent would be used to promote and advertise arts and culture events which have as one of their main purposes to attract tourists. For more than 10 years (and currently) the TDC has ignored the voters mandates by: 1. Denying arts and culture (A&C revenues (placing innumerable contractual impediments between the art community and funds designated to promote A&C events). 2. Diverting huge sums into sporting events (fishing,golfing, racing,etc.). 3. Inflating administration cost (salaries and paperwork) to almost half (42 percents entire revenues. The TDCs misuse of public funds finally attracted unfavorable attention from the State which resulted in an internal audit of the TDCs books last year. This audit resulted in the TDC returning a 10year accumulation of $162,000 back into the arts and culture account. Amazingly,these funds are still managed by the TDC even though: 1. Public designated funds for A&C have been found to be grossly mismanaged by the TDC. 2. The TDC is chaired by representatives from hotels,golf,racing, fishing but has no representative for arts and culture. 3. The TDCs members and administrative staff have no expertise in promoting A&C. 4. Members of the TDC are now erroneously complaining that the A&C community has historically failed to apply for the money and there is too much money in the A&C account. You might think after getting caught mishandling the revenues for A&C promotion and administrative costs,a reasonable business person would restore funds to the A&C account (which they reluctantly have),reign in administrative cost to match the publics mandate and move to insure all future revenues are distributed in accordance with the publics wishes. Wrong! The TDCs unbelievable solution to this problem is to take their excessive administration cost right off the top of all revenues rather than bringing it in line with the publics wishes (leaving less moneyj in each account to promote tourism). The public wont notice how little is being spent to promote tourism because the TDC also plans to eliminate several accounts (including arts and culture ing the money into one large gray area to spend as they please. They also plan to ask for an increase in revenues. In their Feb. 28 meeting they voted to ask the board of county commissioners to approve a new ordinance over riding the publics ordinance without public approval. If the county commission approves the TDCs proposal,the TDC will be even less accountable for greater revenues than they have mismanaged in the past. Bob Fishel Avon Park Whose rights will come first?Editor: Address to the county commission on March 26,2013 concerning the property rights of its citizens, business and corporate property owners. Gingerlee Mitchelllindo for the record,Good evening Commissioners, I think you only have two questions to answer here really. The first question is this:Who do you represent as a commissioner first,the individual citizen of Highlands County,or the commercial or corporate endeavors of Highlands County. I personally look at the Skipper business and the mud bog business as the same. And two:Whose constitutional property rights,both federal and state,are you going to defend first? Because both have equal property rights in my opinion now due to the recent Supreme Court decisions. The second question is:Will you stand for the individuals private property rights above others first,then commercial property rights secondly and corporate property rights thirdly,or will it be the other way around? Because your decision in this is going to determine the future of Highlands County and the future land use,I guarantee it. I personally,as a citizen of Highlands County,demand you put the individuals private property rights above all others as we,the People Constitution states. Thank you for listening to my opinion as a citizen. Gingerlee Mitchelllind o Sebring BouquetMany help with KLC career dayEditor: Recently the Kindergarten Learning Center conducted our annual career day. During this time,local business owners and community helpers visited classrooms for question and answer sessions with our students. We would like to thank the following individuals for volunteering their time:Susan Bible of Sebring Florist,YMCAs Michelle Cathey, Florida Hospital Heartland Divisions Kaylie Lindsey and Celin Joseph,Kim Heintz from Highlands Independent Bank, Sebring Police Departments Ryan Magnuson and John Garrison,We st Sebring Volunteer Fire Department member Kevin Stoker,and Judge Olin Shinholser and Bailiff Deputy Wilcox. We appreciate the time and effort these individuals spent with our students and staff. Andrew Lethbridge Principal S adly,bureaucracy is a time-honored tradition in the United States government, but perhaps no greater bureaucratic juggernaute xists today than the Veterans Administration ( VA) run by the Obama Administration. The abject failure of the V A under the leadership of the three-ring circus we k now as the Obama Administration is a case in point that increasing fundingd oes little to inject competence or efficiency. Recent documents from an I nternal Veterans Affairs Department reveal some vete rans actually die before receiving the care they need and others are forced to wait up to eight months to see a doctor,well beyond the VAss tandard of 14 days. A House Veterans Oversight and Investigations committee appointed to look into the problem found evidence the VA is falsifying numbers and closing out vet-e ransappointment requests in response to the backlog. A ccording to the Military Times,the committee chairman,Rep. Mike Coffman (R-COcites reasons for the closeouts include:ther equest was years old,too much time had elapsed,or the veteran had died. A March 14,2013 witness testimony by theG overnment Accountability Office (GAO) Health Care Director,Debra Draper stated no one actually knows how long veterans are waiting for care because the reported dates are unreliable-a large number of VA appointment schedulers dont know how to do their j ob,the whole system is obsolete, and datesa re massaged to show clinic wait times w ithin VHAs p erformance goals. I digress to note that similar complaints are also docum ented within Britains National Healthcare System w here workers manipulate numbers to meet quotas to keep their jobs. If the VA cant provide benefits to our nations veterans,how doest he Obama administration plan to deliver healthcare for 30-plus million Americans? Liberals would have us believe that a bloated federal government has the ability to play a meaningful role inn urturing peoples lives,but if they cant get this one r ight,they should just fuhgeddaboutit. Case closed. Done. Additionally,internal VA documents secured by theC enter for Investigative Reporting found wait times for first-time disability compensation claims and other benefit claims are muchl onger than the VA cares to admit,with claims taking anywhere from 316 to 642 days. In the first year of President Obamas presidency,11,000 veterans were on a claim waiting list for more than a year. Five years later, despite promises for i mprovement,and massive dollars invested,the situation has deteriorated. Those on a one-year waiting list for claims rose bym ore than 2000 percent,to 245,000 in 2012. Currently, t he average wait time for 900,000 veterans who have been willing to sacrifice lifea nd limb for our freedom is 273 days. With that kind of m alfeasance taking place under my watch,I think Id do a little less golfing if Iw ere president. If you think this has something to do with the mess O bama inherited,then think again. The Center for I nvestigative Reporting found,the average wait time for veterans filing disability claims fell by more than a third under PresidentG eorge W.Bush,even as more than 320,000 Iraq and Afghanistan veterans filed disability claims.Its actually about priorities,wouldt you say? Jon Stewart effectively n ailed it using humor March 27 on The Daily Show when h e said,McDonalds handles 10 times that many customers in an hour,and may I remind you,they are run by a clown.Sadly,though,thei neptitude of this administration is no laughing matter.

B renner owns several buildings in downtown Sebring that currently are being used for a variety ofb usinesses.

Cornerstones Bereavement Department reached out to HAL to present a series of workshops to h elp people going through bereavement and loss. K athleen Border,marketing d irector for Cornerstone,stated t hat the workshops are a first-time event in Highlands County. e have had them in other counties,in Lake and Sumter, where our corporate offices are,but we decided to extend it to Highlands County and see how it w ould do,Border said. C ornerstone reached out to HAL t o give the project more of a push; t he art focus of HAL compliments the education-focused mission of hospice. The three-part series included workshops:The Color of Grief, Unmasking Your Grief and Giving W ords to Our Grief. W orkshop attendee Hank Kowalski attended the first workshop in late March and made plans t o attend the final workshop T uesday afternoon. On the first workshop they gave y ou a blank sheet of special canvas p aper. They told us to paint and use c olors to represent how you were f eeling,Kowalski said. I painted two hearts; I didnt use a lot of colors. Then I connected the hearts together and it indicated mine and my wifes heart. Then I painted another set of heartsb ut they were kind of broken,they had two breaks in them. That indic ated my son and my wife. Kowalski revealed that he was in the midst of bereavement and wasw orking to overcome the pain of the loss of his son and his wife, b oth who died last year. I lost my 56-year-old son in February,then in August I lost myw ife. I lost them both in the same year,in 2012,Kowalski said. Kowalski,89,said he sometimes f eels very sad,much like the clouds he depicted on his canvas during the first workshop. Tuesdays final workshop is one that focuses on writing rather than images. Kowalski was looking for-w ard to attending the workshop again and that he has gained a little k nowledge and insight from going to them. I like to write myself,already. T his one will be interesting. I do want to put my thoughts on paper... W hen I do go out in public people dont know how deeply Im hurting,so I have to put on a mask,s ort of like what the second workshop was about. People dont want to deal with you if you have a sourpuss on all the time,so I put on a happy face. These (workshops) give you perspective andy ou see other people going through and feeling the same things you are feeling,Kowalski said. s good to have the guest artists there. When they (attendees)g et stuck,or have a sort of a writers block,they are there to walk them through it and get it out. Most of the people that have attended thought it was great,theya sked if they could come again. The HAL has a great interest in this and in doing it again,Border said. The workshop is targeted for individuals in the bereavementp hase. Anyone who has lost a loved one,no matter the length of time t hat has passed,is targeted for the workshop. e didnt have just people t here who recently lost a loved one. We have one woman attending who l ost her husband five years ago. Its good to have people there on different areas of their bereavement journey so that others can see that you can make it and that it does gete asier,Border said. Kowalski looks forward to that d ay. Following a somewhat lonely Easter holiday,the widower hopes that brighter days are ahead. Easter was very hard,it was the most horrific day Ive ever gone t hrough. I kept waiting on calls that never came,so Im looking forward to the workshop and Ih ope things get a great deal better, Kowalski said. Grief workshops help give hope to bereaved News-Sun photo by KATARA SIMMONS Local artist Linda Kegley (from left) watches Hank Kowalski of Lake Placid as he paints a picture depicting his grief recently during the Art and Grief Workshop in Sebring.

Following the special magi strates recommendations, City Administrator Scott Noethlich requested an executive session for the council members to open up discussion which was held Thursday night at city hall. The executive session was scheduled so that we could talk about the issues at a specific time so not to take up time during a council meeting,Noethlich said. We will still have a public meet-i ng in reference to what recommendations were made. The meeting deals with that specifically,Noethlich said. s hard to tell at this point what council will want to do. I dont think there going toa ccept the recommendations. We kind of knew going in that it (recommendations would be weighted more towards the union,otherwise there would be no use for a magistrate. E ach side will once again present its arguments. The council will ultimately decide what will be done about the issues.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comThey came, they saw and left triumphant as the Lake Placid girls tennis team laid claim to the District 9-2A Championship on Wednesday. Played at the Auburndale City Courts Tuesday and Wednesday, the Lady Dragons got just enough to stay ahead in the team totals with 13 points, edging Hardees 12 and Lake Wales10. Hannah Waller played a tough match in her No. 1 Singles opener, falling to eventual champ Jessica Hignight of Lake Wales, but Stephanie Rodriguez cruised to a 6-2, 6-0 win in her opener before winning a pair of marathon matches. Against Vanessa Martinez of Auburndale, Rodriguez bounced back from a 6-3, opening-set loss to win the next 6-2. She then went on to take t he tie-breaker 10-4 and move on to the championship match. There, against Hardees Susana Oceguera, Rodriguezs aw a reversal of fortune, winning the first set, but dropping the second. In a nail-biting tie-breaker, Rodriguez outlasted Oceguera 7-5 to be crowned District Champion and give the Dragons three big points in the team totals. Three more were added at No. 3 Singles as Claire LeBlanc cruised to a 6-0, 6-1 win to start and got past Katherine Dudamel of Lake Wales, 6-1, 6-2 to reach the title match. Pitted against Lady Wildcat Caroline Durrance, LeBlanc eked out a 7-5, opening-set win before taking control and winning the second set 6-3. At No. 4 Singles, Jenna Blount gave eventual champ Madison Burnett her toughest match of the tournament before falling in a third-set tie-breaker. After getting edged in an extended opening set, 7-6, Blount came back to take a strong, 6-3 win to even it up. But Burnett held on for a 10-6 win and would win her next two to take the No. 4 title. At No. 5 Singles, Rachel Shattler earned another three points for the Dragons and win herself a district title. After a first-round bye, Shattler bounced back from a 6-2 loss in her first set against Lake WalesStephanie Revello, to take a 7-6 win and set up a tie-breaker, which she won 10-7. She then made it look easy in the finale, taking a 6-3, 6-1 win for Lake Placids third individual championship Waller and Rodriguez then teamed up and got a firstround win at No. 1 Doubles, earning the Dragons a point, before falling to a Lady Highlander pair that would eventually win it all. LeBlanc and Blount then added the winning three points to Lake Placids total by winning the No. 2 Doubles title. The pair cruised to a 6-1, 60 win in their opening match against Avon Park, then went 6-2, 6-3 over Auburndale and rolled past Hardee 6-2, 6-0 for the championship. As an added reward for their win, the Lady Dragons will host their Regional match Tuesday and Thursday, April9 and 11., beginning at 3 p.m. each day. Sebrings girls of the tennis courts had a strong showing at this weeks District 10-3A tournament at the Beerman Family Tennis Center in Lakeland, but saw their season end just a bit earlier than hoped for. In Tuesdays quaterfinals, No. 1 Singles player Nisha Patel rolled to a 6-0, 6-1 win to move into the semifinals, a place Joy Donglasan was headed at No. 2. But while up 6-5 over Lake Lady Streaks stopped short As many of you know, the weather for March was challenging for fishermen. Cold nights coupled with high winds made it difficult to get out, and when we could, the falling water temperatures had a negative effect on fishing. Water temperatures in many of the lakes fell from the mid to upper sixties in February as much as 8 to 10 degrees in March, causing a stall for many breeding bass. The lack of rain has also impacted the spawn, lowering water levels and in some cases exposing would be spawning beds. Id wanted to fish Lake Walk in Water in Polk County and I finally got a chance last week when the weather report called for light winds. The water level was down slightly; making the boat ramp area extremely shallow except for the boat launch itself and the water temperature was a cold 62 degrees. I fished all of my primary spots, from north to south and managed to catch three small bass. No evidence of hydrilla or other vegetation other than lily pads and reeds along the shoreline. The water was stirred up quite a bit from all the wind weve had in the past few weeks. The forecast for last Saturday was a little better, with highs predicted to be 76 degrees and light to moderate winds, but the water temperature was still in the lower sixties and the bass werent cooperating there either. I could not get a hit in the reeds and managed a couple of small bass working the northwest corner with suspending jerk bait. After I got home on Saturday, I decided to try Lake Clara, a small lake behind my house in Golf Hammock. Walking out to my dock, I noticed a large swirl about 25 feet down the southern shoreline. I assumed it must have been a turtle or duck, but I made a couple of casts in the area anyway. Not too surprisingly, there were no takers. Fan casting the suspending jerk bait north to south, on my fifth cast, in the same general area as where Id seen the large swirl, my bait stopped dead as a huge bass exploded on the surface and headed out to deep water. My drag was pretty loose, and as line was being taken quickly, I managed to tighten the drag and begin working the bass back towards me. Two more attempted jumps and the fish finally came towards me, swimmin g directly under my Jon boat and then under the boat dock. Swimming on the inside of one of the main posts and then back out again to open SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, April 5, 2013 Page B3 Fishin Around...

However, Sebring still gave the Winter Haven Blue Devils a good run on Tuesday night at home, coming up short of t he win 15-6. eve lost to Winter Haven two times already said head coach Joe Sinness. e wont win the district title this year Although things fell apart deeper in the game, the Streaks had a dominating first inning. Chelsea Bassett pitched a strong top of the frame and t he fielders were able to get out the first three Winter Haven batters after line drives to second, short and center. The Streaks got on the b oard in the bottom of the first by scoring two runs. Tayla Dasilva got on base with a single to left, followed by a line-drive in the rightcenter field gap by Carly Hoffner, which brought Dasilva home and put Hoffner on second. Bassett got on base from an infield hit near short, and Hoffner moved up to third. The bases were loaded with only one out, giving the Streaks an opportunity for a huge scoring inning, after Mattie Coe got on base from a walk. But the next two batters would turn up outs, and only Hoffner was able to sprint home to make the score 2-0. In the top of the second the Blue Devils were nearly shut down again when their fir st two batters hits to outfield resulted in outs. Winter Haven was able to hold off the final out when their next three batters got on base from errors, loading the bases. Ahit to right brought the three Winter Haven runners int o give them the advantage 32 Luckily the Streaks were able to get the final out when Hoffner threw a Devil hitter out at first.

News-Sun photo by ALEX COYNE Taylor Test tags out this Frostproof baserunner, butt he Lady Bulldogs got the better of the Dragons Tuesday night. By ALEX COYNE N ews-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID The Lake Placid girls softball team hoped to add another win over the Frostproof Bulldogs to their record, but fell short Tuesday night at home. They dug themselves a d eep hole in the starting innings, and never fully recovered as the night ended in Frostproofs favor, 12-5. Frostproof started strong and early, earning three r uns in the first inning. Laine Weber-Callahan hit a double to start the batting off for Lake Placid but was left stranded when three immediate outs followed. With two outs, a man on third, and Lake Placid in dire need of an out, a Frostproof batter cranked a line drive to left field. With sheer athleticism, Raveen Gobourne covered an impressive amount of distance making a sprinting catch to end the top of the second inning and le ft Frostproof scoreless. Three quick outs left the Dragons scoreless, too, and the score was frozen at 3-0. The Bulldogs then came up to bat again and they executed, adding four runs to their score. Three strikeouts for the Dragons left the score reading 7-0 going into the fourth inning. Their pitcher did a great job. Breauna Corley stated. e just werent recognizing the outside pitches, which tore us up by the end of the night.Taylor Test added. Lake Placid only allowed one run in the top of the fourth, and it was their turn to put some numbers on the board. Annie Weber-Callahan drew a walk, and Courtney Delaney earned a single. Corley hit a long shot to the left field fence, bringing Callahan home for the Dragonsfirst run.

Laying the rod down, I grabbed the line and pulled the fish in, hand over hand. Both my dogs, Ranger and Riley, who are unable to reach the lake due to an invisible fence, were barking excitedly as I reached out and grabbed the big bass by the lower lip. She was a real beauty, 25 inches in length with a nice belly and thick, heavy shoulders. I walked up to the house and had my wife snap a couple of pictures, as I tried to get my scale to work properly. Of course the battery was dead, so rather than do a quick search for a fresh battery, I did a quick measurement and released her back into Lake Clara. Its pretty amazing when I fish all these recognized big bass lakes and make a half dozen casts and catch a beauty like this one in my own backyard. Just goes to show you that you cant beat blind luck! With my confidence restored, I decided to try Lake Istokpoga on Sunday. Again, warmer temperatures were predicted, along with 8-10 mph winds coming out of the SSW, so I felt pretty confident as I moved into one of my favorite flippinareas. My confidence was rewarded on the second flip when a big largemouth took the bait and almost pulled the rod out of my hands. Its funny, in a way, but even though as a fisherman you should expect or anticipate a strike on every flip, I didnt really expect to connect with a big fish on my second flip. Its called sleepinon the job. I wrestled the bass to the starboard side of the boat, reached down and after two attempts, finally grabbed her lower lip and brought her on board. Still no batteries in my scale, so I took a quick measurement, 23, and softly released her back into the water. One of the down sides of fishing alone is theres no one to take a picture if you catch a nice bass, and since Lake Istokpoga, like many of the lakes in this area has a 15-24 slot, you cant keep a big bass unless its over 24. As a lifelong believer in releasing all bass, its still nice to take a big fish home, get a few pictures and release it in a local lake, or in my case, in my own back yard. Sunday proved to be a great day on the water at Lake Istokpoga. Unlike Lake Glenada and Lake Walk in Water,the water temperature was much warmer in the 65 to 68 degree range and the bass were shallow enough to be caught in the reeds. By the end of the day, Id caught seven bass, the largest on my second flip of the day. Like I said, you cant beat blind luck!

By CURTANDERSON A ssociated PressMIAMI While Miami Heat star Chris Bosh was out celebrating his birthday at a Morocco-themed party complete with live camels, police said Thursday that thieves made off with about $340,000 in jewelry from the players nearby home. Miami Beach police spokesman Bobby Hernandez said the department received a call about 12:30 a.m. after Bosh and his wife, Adrienne, returned from the party at a bayside Miami nightspot. Hernandez said the couple noticed a jewelry drawer was open and numerous watches, rings and purses were missing. There was no sign of forced entry at the waterfront, 12,368-square-foot home, which Bosh purchased in 2010 for $12.3 million. Hernandez also said easily traceable items such as Boshs Heat championship ring from last years NBA title were left undisturbed. e think it was probably an inside job, Hernandez said. Its very difficult to prevent crimes such as this from happening. Police were interviewing Boshs housekeepers and anyone else, such as a contractor or repair person, who may have recently had access to the home. They were also fanning out to check local pawn shops for the stolen items. Bosh, celebrating his 29th birthday, arrived at the party Wednesday night via helicopter and a yacht. Numerous local and social media sites reported that most fellow Heat players were there, including stars LeBron James and Dwyane Wade, many of them dressed in Saharan garb. Guests were greeted by a pair of camels Henri and Jacob at the door and the birthday cake was a jewel-festooned chocolate elephant ridden by a miniature Bosh figure. Entertainment included belly dancers and fire eaters. The 6-foot-11 Bosh, now in his ninth NBAseason, is averaging 16.7 points and 6.7 rebounds for the firstplace Heat. His actual birthday was March 24, but the celebration was delayed until Wednesday. Thieves steal $340K in jewelry from Bosh home We think it was probably an inside job.

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Its a good thing South Florida head softball coach Carlos Falla keeps his head clean shaven. Then again, hed likely have torn his hair out anyway as his maddening squad continued to confound Tuesday night. In a Suncoast Conference doubleheader against the visiting Manatees of the S tate College of Florida, the Lady Panthers could do little right in a 12-1 openinggame loss. After a hit and an error put to on to start the first, Chelsea Wildey unloaded one over the left-field fence for a three-run homer and a quick 3-0 lead for SCF. Asingle, walk, hit by pitch and error allowed for another run in the second and two more came across in the third on three Manatee hits for a 6-0 lead. South Florida loaded the bases with two out in the bottom of the third on a Lexi Belardi double, Rayvin Vick walk and Alexis Adams single. But none would move any further as the next batter popped out to third. State College was held off the board in the fourth, and the Panthers would get on the board with a Taylor Upchurch RBI single, but it would stand at 6-1 into the sixth, when the Manatees put it away. Five straight hits, along with a wild pitch, brought three in, and with two out and two on, Kat Penn blaste d a moon launch for another three-run homer to bookend the scoring. And yet, after this underwhelming effort, South Florida got on track behind Adams in the nightcap tightening up the defense and producing just enough timely hitting to come away with a 3-2 win. I dont know what it is, sophomore outfielder Amanda Byers said. I guess we trap the other teams by getting them overconfident in the first game and then beating them in the second. T heir own confidence better start building as the conference race is tightening up. Hillsborough holds the top spot at 6-2, with the Panthers just a game back at5 -3. State College and Polk State are both just one more game back, tied for third at 4-4. South Florida hopes to push Polk a little further back Tuesday in a road date before returning home to face St. Petersburg Thursday.

Only one run was allowed again for the Bulldog squad, and the Dragons, none, in the sixth inning. With a 10-4 disadvantage going into the seventh, it was a crucial inning for the Dragons. Three walks, a single and a wild pitch allowed two more runs for Frostproof. Adouble play, tagging a runner at home and another at third, ended the rally. The Dragons were kept at only one run in the last inning, and the game was over by the 12-5 count.. They came to play. We beat them on their home turf and we just werent on our g ame. Test stated.

Continued from B1 Tennis continues for LP News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Tyler Carr helped himself out with a double and pair of runs scored, while giving up just two hits on the mound i n Tuesdays 12-0 win. By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comOn the road Tuesday night, L ake Placid baseball rolled to an easy district win, dismantling Mulberry by a 12-0 score. Four came across in the first inning for the Dragons, with Morgan Lott and Laine Daum each getting an RBI single and Jacob Cram bringing home two. Any one of those runs would have stood up as starting pitcher Tyler Carr was nearly spotless on the night. He worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the bottom of the first, and never really got in trouble again as he went five innings, gave up just two hits, one walk and struck out five. Carr helped his own cause in the third, leading things off with a double. Cram reached on an error, Carr scored on a wild pitch and Rufino Gutierrez also got o n safely due to an error, which also brought Cram in t o score. Heath Harris followed with an RBI single and the lead stood at 7-0. Daum added two more RBI to his stat-line for the night with a single to score Nathan Stanley and Lott in the fourth. And the final three runs came across in the fifth with Daum getting his fourth RBI of the game, before Carr finished off the mercy rule win by retiring the side in the bottom of the frame. That makes it three wins in a row for the Dragons and moves them to 4-2 in District 10-4A, a game behind firstplace DeSoto. Lake Placid is off until Tuesday, when it will host Frostproof in hopes of further solidifying the second-place seed. Dragons maul Mulberry Lake Placid12Mulberry0

C M Y K When I was a medical student,I spent some time at Queens Square,a wellknown neurologic hospital in London. They were just finishing up testing of the EMI (yes,the same people who brought you the Beetles) scanner. It only did heads and at least one of the professors said it would never catch on.The English may have invented it,but the Americans ran with it and it became what we now call the CT scanner. The CT scanner is very good at structure. For heads, it was miles ahead of the old painful tests requiring injection of air or dye into the ventricles of the brain to look for abnormalities. The CT uses x-ray to study structures throughout the body. It is especially valuable for bone. Instead of the x-ray beam going through the tissue and making a picture ona film,the computer analyzes the beam and makes the picture. It can make the pictures in slicesand by looking at each slice the doctor has a better idea of what a fracture or bone tumor looks like. The newer models make 3-D images that can be rotated and some can even produce in a plastic polymer what each bone fragment looks like. This is very helpful when trying to repair a broken pelvis or heel bone. The doctor can see what each piece looks like and how to fit them back together before taking the patient to the operating room. The MRI came next. This is a technology I used in grad school to analyze big organic molecules. In a magnetic field,the hydrogen atoms that exist in all organic tissues change their spin by what (for example carbon rings) is next to them. The computer takes this information and converts it to pictures very similar to those seen in the CT slices. Soft tissues appear more clearly in this scan. The drawback is that it is a very strong magnetic field so patients with pacemakers and some types of metal near the area being studied cannot safely have the scans. With both the CT and MRI some areas, such as the colon and kidneys,can have the pictures enhanced by the use of contrast materials (DYE) that is swallowed or injected in a vein. The newest tool is the PET scan. This looks at function rather than structure. It is often used with a CT or MRI scan. The PET scan is used for brain disorders,such as Alzheimers or epilepsy,to look for some cancers or to study the blood flow to the heart. A short lived radioactive tracer is tagged on to a substance that the target organ uses. For example, tagged glucose is used to study cancers because cancerous tissue uses glucose differently than normal tissue. The radioactivematerial is injected in a vein and after about an hour the scan is done. The radiation exposure is about the same as for the CT scan. All of this high tech allows us to diagnose many things more accurately and quickly than in the old days, but at a price. This is one of the many reasons that healthcare costs are going up. They should not replace physical exam or less expensive tests that will give the same answers. Dr. Diana D.

Please help me solve t his or recommend different medicine? A.P.,Tuscon,Ariz. Answer: This is a great question e specially since high blood pressure (a.k.a. hypertensionw affects one in e very three American adults. Thats a staggering 78 million people and the American Heart Association says this number will continue escalating. As a pharmacist for 23 years,ve w atched you endure uncomfortable side effects while trying to control blood p ressure with various medications. Please dont get off medicine cold turkebecause there can be backlash.R ather,ask your doctor if its better to wean slowly.That said,here are afforda ble solutions that should bring relief and allow you to stay on your medication more comfortably. Ive categorized t he information based on medication category. Discuss everything with your physician. Beta Blockers As implied by their name,these drugs block betarecep-t ors on cells of your heart and arteries, and all over causing symptoms head to toe. Two of the most popular beta blockers are atenolol and propranolol. A common side effect is vivid dreaming orn ightmares. That also happens to people who b ecome deficient in melatonin,a sleeppromoting compound you make in yourb rain. Guess what,beta blockers suppress melatonin levels,shown in 1999 by a study published in the European Journal of Clinical Pharmacology. CoQ10 is also depleted,which mayc ause chronic fatigue,depression,restless legs or cramps. Beta blockers are what I call drug muggers of melatonin and CoQ10; restoring levels may be your side effect solution. Take CoQ10 in the morning and melatonin at bedtime. Diuretics These include loop,thia zide and sulfonamide diuretics and cause you to urinate more fluid,reducing pressure in your pipeline. Furosemide and HCTZ are popular ones. This drug category causes side effects off atigue,weakness and leg cramps, twitches or muscle spasms. It happens d ue to the loss of an important mineral or electrolyte from all that excessive uri-n ation; its often magnesium or potassium loss. CoQ10 is also reduced. The side effect solution includes potassium,CoQ10 and a magnesium supplement. Also coconut water,forr eal; it restores electrolytes. ACE Inhibitors and Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers Medications in these two categories ultimately dilate blood vessels,thus reducing pressure. Enalapril and losartan are examples. A common side effect is dizziness. It can be caused by the sheer drop in bloodp ressure so try taking your medicine at night so you can sleep through the wooziness. Get up very slowly in them morning to avoid feeling faint,sometimes termed orthostatic hypotension. B ody aches and pains are common side effects too. Thats because these m edication categories are drug muggers of magnesium. You become deficient.T ry magnesium malate (or aspartate about 300mg taken twice daily,or whatever your practitioner says.

Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Highlands County HealthD epartment has asked the public to join in celebrating National Public Health Week,April 1-7,by observing daily themes as suggest-e d by the American Public Health Association. April 1 was Ensuring a S afe,Healthy Home for Your Family.A good website for creating a familyd isaster plan,it is called Get a Plan! This can be f ound on the Florida Division of Emergency Managements website atw ww.floridadisaster.org/fa mily/. A pril 2 was Providing a Safe Environment for Children at School. Raise awareness of the links between good health anda cademic achievement and how schools can play a big r ole in improving childrens health. Today is Creating a H ealth Workplace. Teach communities how public h ealth works for them, especially in preventing illness and injury on the job. P romote wellness in the workplace its good for employees,employers and the bottom line. The departments E nvironmental Health staff wanted to advise that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,handwashing ist he single most importantthing you can do t o keep from getting sick and to prevent thespread ofi nfection. Hand washing can prevent colds,as well as more serious illnesses, like influenza,food-borne illnesses,and hospital-a cquired infections. The CDC estimates that each year in the United States 36,000 people die from the flu or flu-like ill-n esses; 5,000 die from food-borne illnesses; and 78,000 to 90,000 die from hospital-acquired infections. There is a direct link between these deaths and the failure to wash hands. Globally,pneumonia,the l eading cause of death in children,and diarrhea,the second leading cause of child death,could be cut by one-quarter and one-half respectively through handwashing,according to CDC estimates. There is a correct way to w ash your hands. When u sing soap and water,scrub a ll surfaces for 20 seconds. T o time it right,you can h um the Happy Birthda song twice while washing. Rinse your hands thoroughly under running water,andd ry them with a clean towel o r air dry them. Turn the f aucet off with the towel, n ot the hands,to prevent rec ontamination. When soap and water are not available,use alcoholbased disposable hand wipes or gel sanitizers. You can find them in most supermarkets and drugstores. If using a sanitizer, rub the gel into your hands until they are dry. The gel doesn't need w ater to work; the alcohol i n the gel kills germs that cause colds and the flu. However,alcohol-based disposable hand wipes or gel sanitizers do not remove dirt. F or further information a bout hand hygiene issues, contact the Environmental Health Division,Highlands County Health Department, at 382-7219. T hursday is Protecting Y ou While Youre on the M ove.

How can it be that that one foot is flat and painful while theo ther still looks normal? Adult acquired flatfoot is also called posterior tibial tendon d ysfunction (PTTD Tendonitis is a common problem because we are typically on our feet nonstop. One of the most commonly affected tendons is the posterior tibial tendon,which holds the arch up andp revents overpronation. The posterior tibial tendon runs b ehind the inside bump on the ankle (the medial malleolusacross the instep,and attaches to the bottom oft he foot. Overuse of the posterior tibial tend on can result in flattening of the foot. Early symptoms can include a burning,shooting,tingling,stabbing pain in the inside of the foot and ankle. Swelling,warmth and flattening of thea rch also may occur. Later the toes start turning outward and the ankle r olls inward. Eventually,pain shifts to the outside of the foot. How did this happen? Aging leads t o decreased strength of our muscles, tendons and ligaments. The blood supp ly diminishes to tendons with aging as arteries narrow.Also,heavier people have more weight on the arch andm ore narrowing of arteries due to atherosclerosis. In some people,the posterior tibial tendon finally gives out or t ears. How do we check for this? We start w ith the single heel rise. We ask you to stand on your toes. Typically you will not be able to perform this maneuver and if you can,there will be significant pain upon the single heelr ise. If you are able to do the test you will be asked to repeat it and will soon start feeling intense pain if a tendonitis is present. An MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) scan is useful to determine whether the tendon has ruptured. H ow do we treat this? Many times, adult acquired flatfoot treatment can b e treated nonsurgically.Treatments can include: Foot and ankle supports give your a rch the support it needs. Immobilization by wearing a s hort-leg boot may calm down symptoms allowing the tendon to heal. Physical therapy including ultrasound therapy and exercises to rehabilitate the tendon following immobi-l ization. Medications. Oral and topical nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDssuch as Advil,help reduce the pain and inflammation. Shoe modifications. A change in shoes will include more supportivel ace-up footwear such as athletic shoes. F or some advanced cases,surgery may be the only choice. If the tendon has ruptured,surgery may be required t o either repair the ruptured tendon. In other cases,the joints may need to be f used. If you suspect that you have adult acquired flatfoot,seek care as soon as possible with your foot doctor who will work with you to eliminate paina nd improve the mobility of your foot.

C M Y K BEIJING (APirst look at the genetics of the bird flu strain that recently killed two men in China said Wednesday that the virus could be harder to track than its better-known cousin H5N1 because it might be able to spread silently among poultry without notice. The scientists,at several research institutes around the world,said the H7N9 virus seems troubling because it can generate no symptoms in poultry while seriously sickening humans. They said the virus,previously known to have infected only birds,appears to have mutated,enabling it to more easily infect other animals,including pigs,which could serve as hosts spreading the virus more widely among humans. The findings are preliminary and need further testing. In the meantime,the scientists are urging Chinese veterinary authorities to widely test animals and healthy birds in affected regions to detect and eliminate the virus before it becomes widespread. In addition to causing two deaths in Shanghai,the virus also seriously sickened five other people in two eastern provinces in the strains first known infections of humans. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, April 5, 2013Page B7 HIGHLANDS COMMUNITY CHORUS/Sus; 5.542"; 5"; Black; 4/5,7; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 8 8 9 9 0 0 3 3 By LAURAN NEERGAARD AP Medical WriterWASHINGTON A new global plan aims to endm ost cases of polio by late next year,and essentially e radicate the paralyzing disease by 2018 if authorities can raise the$ 5.5 billion needed to do the work,health officials said Tuesday. P art of the challenge will be increasing security for v accine workers who have come under attack in two of the hardest-hit countries. And the plan calls for changing how much of thew orld protects against polio,phasing out the longused oral vaccine in favor of a pricier but safer shot version. Intense vaccination campaigns have dropped casest o a historic low,a good opportunity for whats b eing called the endgame strategy for this paralyzing disease,noted Dr. Rebecca Martin of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control andP revention. e have a chance now, with the fewest cases in the fewest places,she said, joining officials from theW orld Health Organization, G ates Foundation and Rotary International to disc uss the strategy that will be finalized later this month. Officials acknowledged that financing the six-yearp lan upfront will be difficult given tight government budgets. The money would cover vaccinations as well as the monitoring required to be sure polio really is gone. L ast year,authorities counted 223 cases of polio w orldwide,down from 650 the year before. Once a worldwide scourge,vaccinations began in the 1950s, and were successful enoughi n developed countries that a global fight for eradication began in 1988. Now polio remains endemic in parts of just three countries Pakistan,Afghanistan and Nigeria where all b ut six of last years cases occurred. Other countries remain at risk,as travelersc an spread the infectious disease to the unvaccinated. R ecent killings of vaccine workers in Pakistan and Nigeria have made thea nti-polio campaign more difficult,but it hasnt stopped and it wont,said W HO polio director Dr. Hamid Jafari. Despite the a ttacks,those countries made progress against polio last year,he said. The new strategy says countries also must dealw ith a smaller but real risk: polio cases caused by the vaccine itself. The highly effective oral polio vaccine contains live, weakened virus that can occasionally regain strengtha nd cause the very disease it was intended to prevent. A shot version of the polio vaccine is made of a killed virus that poses no such risk. The polio-free U.S. switched to the shotso ver a decade ago,but 144 countries still use the oral vaccine. The new strategy calls for them to begin phasing out oral vaccine in2 016.

He thought to himself,That driver isj ust as dangerous as a speeder!So,he turned on his lights and pulled the driver over. Approaching the car,the p olice officer noticed that in it were five older ladies. Two of them were sitting in the front seat and three others were in the back,and all of them had their eyes wideo pen and were as white as sheets. The driver,obviously c onfused,said,Officer,I don't understand. I was going exactly the speedl imit! Whats the problem? Maam,the officer r eplied,you werent speeding,but you should know that driving significantly slower than the speed limit can be just as much a dangert o other drivers as speeding. Slower than the speed limit?she asked. No sir,I was doing the speed limite xactly exactly 22 miles per hour!the old woman s aid a bit proudly. The state police officer, trying to contain a chuckle,e xplained to her that was the route number,not the speed limit. A bit embarr assed,the woman grinned and thanked the officer for p ointing out her error. The officer then asked, Before I let you go,I have to ask,Is everyone in the car O.K.?Your passengerss eem awfully shaken,and they havent muttered a single word this whole time. The woman responded, Oh,thell be alright in a minute,Officer. We just got off Route 119. While some people believe t hat a Stop sign stands for Slow Til Others Pass,it a ctually means that one should come to a complete stop! Others will contendu ntil their dying day that there is absolutely no probl em going 70 mph in a 65 mph zone,because the police give you an extra five miles per hour.Whether the police give you an extra 5,1 0,or 20 miles per hour is irrelevant. A 65 mph speed l imit is just that. It states that the limit to your speed should be 65 miles per houra nd nothing more. We may not always agree w ith the decisions of our government. In fact,some people do not even like ourg overnment. With the corruption in politics that is so evident,is it any wonder? H owever,corruption or no corruption,we still have no e xcuse to disobey the laws of our land. If one has chosen to obey God,then he has chosen to obey the governing authori-t ies,as well (that is,as long as the government does not violate Gods laws). Paul wrote to other Christians in Romans 13:1-4, Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God. T herefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon t hemselves. For rulers are not a cause of fear for good behavior,but for evil. Do you want to have no fear of authority? Do what is good a nd you will have praise f rom the same; for it is a minister of God to you for good. But if you do what is evil,be afraid; for it does not bear the sword for noth ing; for it is a minister of G od,an avenger who bring s wrath on the one who pract ices evil. W e may not always like the decisions passed down to us by our government,but they are necessary tools in establishing order between that which is right and w rong. As long as the government submits itself to th e a uthority of God in creating its laws,then we must submit ourselves to the authority of the government by o beying those laws. My m other use to tell me to obey the laws of the land. T hat was not only good, motherly advice,it is Gods w ill for all of us!

Joe:Rise of Cobra: I m dreading this movie. I still havent recovered from that awful second Transformersmovie from a month back. Or that awful f irst Transformersmovie from two years ago for that matter. Wait,this isnt so bad. Sure its a glorified toy commercial,but at least Il ike these characters and the gags are landing better than I thought they would. Marlon Wayans actually makes a pretty effective action hero,Dennis Quaid has a wise presence,gottal ove Rachel Nichols as the hot nerd,Joseph GordonL evitt kills it as the villain, and this Channing Tatum kid seems to have a bright future. Now its over and I realize that I didnt spendt he entire time longing for it to end. Well done. And now my thoughts on G.I. Joe:Retaliation: This sure doesnt look p romising based on its commercials,but the first one was a pleasant surprise, maybe this one can pull it off again... Wre getting an introduction to the characters and apparently all of my old favorites are gone except Channing Tatum. But weve got Dwayne Johnson now, maybe he can salvage this movie. Theres a confusing action scene and some unfunny banter,and were off to a bad start... Now Jonathan Pryce is onscreen as the kidnapped U.S. President and his evil duplicate,a Cobra henchman. I like the way Pryce gnashes the scenery. Confusing action scene, unfunny banter,confusing action scene,unfunny banter. Its official,Johnson cannot come close to saving this movie. So much for all that range he showed in Snitch... Channing Tatum takes his leave after 15 minutes,and its goodbye to any connection to the original. The Joesa re down to Johnson and two dull new characters played by Adrianne Palicki and D.J. Cotrona. This movie is hemorrhaging star power,but Id ont blame Tatum for wanting out as soon as possible... Heres the inevitable Cobra Commander breaks out of prisonsequence where Walton Goggins plays the sleazy warden. I despise this character,but its comforting to know that hes probably not long for this world. Cobra Commander breaks out with the help of Storm Shadow (Byung-hun Lee) and Firefly (Ray Stevenson). Like Im going to be intimidated by a villain called Firefly.And why does Cobra Commander have zero personality?... Awkward location shift to Tokyo where we catch up with Snake Eyes (Ray Park) and Jinx (Elodie Young). Snake Eyes looks like a rejected Power Rangers villain. Some nonsense about them needing to settle a score with Storm Shadow. The Joes reach out to the original Joe (Bruce Willis) for help and we get more unfunny banter. Theres a c onfusing action sequence in Tokyo,but at least Im not u sed to seeing zip-line action scenes,so thats something new.Too bad thes pecial effects are unconvincing... Generic undercover miss ion in America,followed by a terribly-acted sad scene. L aughable resolution to the situation is Tokyo. The American Joes meet up with the Tokyo Joes and we get way too much unfunny ban-t er. The evil President reveals Cobras plan to destroy/take over the world. Clearly the plot isnt very well thought-out since Cobra Commander cant seem to make up his mind betweent he two. But at least Pryce is still fun... C onfusing action sequence,confusing action sequence,make it stop, make it stop (60 more make it stopsomitted for space).S o glad is over,that was painful. Should I give it one star? No,I liked Pryce too much,one and a half stars. But its really,really close too ne star. And no,I do not want to buy the toys. One-and-a-half stars out of five. G.I. Joe:Retaliation is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of combat violence and martial arts action throughout,and for brief sensuality and language. Its running time is 110 minutes. Contact Bob Garver at rrg251@nyu.edu/. G.I.

Her husband had dieda bout two months before our paths crossed. She has two teenage daughters Im veryf ond of. I have a history of alcoholism and shes a hoarder.A week ago,I had an epiphany:I am desperately trying to quit drinkingf or my own sake. Abby,I am a clean freak l iving with a hoarder. I come home from work and get depressed and stressedf rom looking at all the clutter. It is driving me insane. I feel like it is triggering me to stay drunk every night. I dont want to lose this woman and her family,butI cant co-exist in this house. I have left several t imes,only to miss her and go back. Im trying to kick the booze,but I know Iw ont be able to achieve sobriety while living in this h ouse. Truly Torn in Texas Dear Truly Torn: If you q uit drinking only a week ago,it is important that you find an AA group to help you hang onto your sobriety. Thats step one. N ext,realize that you and the lady youre living with may share a similar problem. You say you are a clean freak.This can be as ymptom of an obsessivecompulsive disorder. H oarding can be a symptom of the same disorder. T he International OCD Foundation is a reliable resource that may be able to help you both. It offers individuals with this disor-d er the support they need to manage their symptoms, and has many local chapters. You can locate it online at www.ocfounda-t ion.org or reach it by calling (617 Dear Abby: Maybe you would like to pass this on to the parents of teenage boys. It worked for me when I had the sex talk with my sons. I knew their brains had not yet fully developed. They thought they were invincible and had an it could never happen to meattitude. Because money seems to be the one thing at that age t hey can relate to, I decided to turn it into a mathematical problem:I told them that if theyg ot a girl pregnant,they could figure on a minimum of $300 a month child supp ort,multiplied by 12 months for 18 years. (That totals $65,000 u nless the girl has twins, which would double the amount.) T hen I told them if they were tempted to have u nprotected sex,they should look at the girl and ask themselves if theyw ould pay her $65,000 to have sex with them. If they c ouldnt answer yes,then they needed to walk away. Abby,it worked! No grandchildren appeared until after they were mar-r ied. Feel free to share this with other parents who w ould appreciate a nontraditionalapproach that is effective. Tony in SanD iego Dear Tony:Gladly. Im p assing your technique along because money is a great motivator,and your i dea makes cents. Dear Abby: My roommate insists that undershirts should be washedr ight-side-out. I say as long as youre using detergent and bleach,it doesnt matter. Who is right? Mr. Clean in O ceanside,Calif. Dear Mr. Clean: I dont c laim to be a domestic goddess,but I dont think therei s a right or wrong way to wash undershirts. I have heard,however,that washing garments inside out will prevent lint buildup ont he outside,and in the case of denim,less fading.

Man battling booze feels hes drowning in girlfriends clutter D ear Abby By FRAZIER MOORE AP Television WriterNEW YORK Animal P lanet wants to help you tap into your inner wild. Thats the networks message as it unveils 11 new shows along with 20r eturning favorites in the season ahead. Never fear:Super Bowl S undays wildly popular Puppy Bowlis right where it belongs on then etworks slate (to be officially announced to advert isers on Thursday). And there will be more awww-some cuteness on Animal BFFs,a new series that will document t he love of odd-couple chums in the animal kingdom. On the other hand, Polar Bear Crossingwillt ransport viewers to Manitoba,Canada,where t he human population of the tiny town of Churchill is outnumbered by its not-a lways-so-neighborly cohabitants:polar bears. Underworlddives into underwater caves around the world,where m ysteries lurk that were previously witnessed by few if any humans,and where danger is as prevalent as wonders. A nd dont forget Billy and Ami Brown,who,with their seven children,have taken residence deep in Alaskas wilderness. Fort his Alaska Bush Family, a harsh environment,dang erous critters and a challenging terrain are justp art of everyday family life. Going wild is the latest step for Animal Planet, which previously recog-n ized people as part of its animal equation with its Surprisingly Human push. There is no animal p lanet and human planet s all ONE planet, says Marjorie Kaplan,the networks president and general manager. So we decided to tell the human stories that happen at that intersection. It worked. In 2012,the network grew by 17 percent among viewers in the 25-to-54 demographic, and by 23 percent among men 25 to 54. It was the networks most-watched year among total viewers. But then we asked ourselves,is there more elbow room in this brand?says Kaplan. The intersection of human and animal is really about the connection of humans to the wild. Wre not getting rid of our animals,but there are places we can explore that are about how we,as humans,live on this wild planet. Example:Catch and Release,a back-to-nature game show that makes Survivorseem as tame as a round of Jeopardy. On this show,a group of five of what are billed as the worlds most elite, thrill-seeking survivalists choose one among them, then blindfold and dispatch him to a remote, unexpected location (whether a dense jungle or a frigid glacier) to fend for himself. He has 100 hours to find his way back to civilization or he loses the game big-time. This is our idea of fun,insists one of these chaps. s a heros journey, says Kaplan. Animal Planet unveils lineup NEW YORK (AP it satisfaction:The Rolling Stones have announced a nine-city tour.
