C M Y K By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentS EBRING Complaints by residents of the Highway Park neighborhood south of Lake Placid have resulted in H ighlands County Animal Control officials embarking on a trapping mission. e have better than 1 20 chickens now at our facility, said Highlands County Animal Control Director Darryl Scott. And thats not counting the biddies. S cott said they have placed two traps in the neighborhood and bring both roosters and hens in on a regular basis. When asked what variety the chickens represented, he said the free-range ani-m als were game fowl. The cocks are generally the kind used for fighting. They are lean and mean, he said. As for the hens, Scott said t here are eggs all over the place, but stopped short of saying they would be good meat producers. The RhodeIsland Reds a nd chickens like that are bred for eating, these are not, he said. Apparently the feral chicken problem in Highway Park began sev-e ral years ago, when someone either let A fter Cpl. Jake Hill stepped on an improvised e xplosive device during a chaotic battle in Afghanistans HelmandP rovince, the young Marine radioed his squad leader. This is Hill, he said. I j ust stepped on an IED, but Im fine. T hrough a dizzying haze of dust, smoke and ongoing gunfire, the Rapid City, S.D., native looked down at his feet. What I saw was a really badly broken left ankle, Cpl. Hill told The Unknown Soldiers. I was like OK, this is fine, people break their ankles all the time. Hill was later shocked w hen a doctor presented him with two difficult choices: r eplace his shattered foot with a cadaver bone or amputate his left leg justa bove the knee. The heel bone was gone ... justp ulverized, Hill said from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. I kind of made up my mind right (there wanted it cut off. Few are forced to make such excruciating decisions, especially at age 19. But Hill, who was in elementary school on 9/11, later chose to join the Marine Corps because he believes it's noble for young Americans to serve their country. In the World War II days, everybody thought that was something you had to do, and it was, but nowadays it really is not, he said. Not a lot of people do that anymore. About two years after graduating high school and leaving South Dakota, Hill was guiding Marines through A fghanistan as a team leader. Its an odd thing to have to tell your friends to go get in combat and get into dan-g er, he said. On Sept. 16, 2010, Hill could have been at the m ovies, playing video games or hanging out with friends. I nstead, he was on patrol in the rugged district of Sangin, one of Afghanistan's most dangerous places. Hill said nearly half the A merican and Afghan troops battling the Taliban were struck by bombs or bullets during the days patrol. There were two (Afghan soldiers) who died and everyone else was woundeda nd taken back, Hill said. e couldnt land (helicopt ers) because the fighting was so heavy out there in the combat zone. A s soon as members of his patrol were hit, Hill, who was servingw ith Company Lof the 3rd Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, took it upon himself to tend to the wounded. ith one of his team members injured by a rocket-propelled grenade, (Hill exposed himself to enemy fire a second time and ran to aid his Marine brother, a Marine Corps citation said. He applied first-aid and led the rest of his team through 200 meters of fire-swept terrain to extract the casualty Like so many combat veterans Ive spoken with, Hill skipped over his gallantry during our interview. He is too humble to take credit for his courageous, life-saving actions. Three or four days after my injury, my platoon commander told me that he was going to be putting me up for an award, Hill, now 22, said. I said no, I don't want i t. In October 2011, Hill showed the world that no matter the challenge, Marines will never quit. Ont hat chilly Washington, D.C., morning just before Halloween, the wounded hero ran the Marine Corps Marathon. It was awesome ... it made me realize that I really, really wanted to be a Marine again, Hill said. I was always a Marine, but I wanted to do Marine things again. Even though his lower left leg is now metal instead of flesh, Hill ran 26.2 miles in less than four hours. I was ecstatic, he said. On June 14, 2012, Lt. Col. Clay Tipton, Hills former commanding officer, presented him with the Silver Star for his heroic actions in Afghanistan. Everybody did things equally as brave, Hill said. s an award for the whole unit. Cpl. Jake Hills award should also serve as an example for young Americans, especially after the horrific terrorist atrocity in Boston. The next time youre presented with a seemingly impossible challenge, think o f what a 19-year-old Marine said after stepping on a powerful roadside bomb. This is Hill, he said.

C M Y K A mong many things, Deleon said, the city has invested $900,000 in u pgrades to the water plant, including a computerized monitoring system. With the new system the FDEP, Deleon said, allows the cityt o use fewer employees. He added the city has two dual certified operators of which he is one and is recruiting for a third. T uesday morning, the day after the council meeting, M acklin and Perry, neither of whom is currently a citye mployee, visited the NewsSun. The brought a detailed, written rebuttal to Deleons PowerPoint. They also brought copies of the unionsc orrespondence with the city and the FDEP, including the letter warning of a public health risk dated Feb. 25. No union representatives a ttended Deleons presentation. e were not aware, Perry said, because we didt know about it. It was not on the agenda for the April 8 meeting. The News-Sun reviewed the original and revised agendas for the April 8 meeting. There was no mention of the unions letter to the FDEPin the original agenda. Anew topic was added to the revised agenda in the committee reports, attorney updates and announcements portion. It was called City Operations Overview, and proved to be Deleons presentation regarding the letter of complaint. Perry and Macklin outlined the unions three main concerns regarding public health safety: The lack of a city safety committee, overworked employees at the w ater plant and the use of unlicensed operators in order t o save money. e want this done in a p rofessional manner. Had the safety committee been formed, Perry said, the union would never have sent the letter to the FloridaD epartment of Environmental Protection. We would have sent a letter to the safety committee. Macklin said the last safet y committee meeting took place in 2003, under former city manager C.B. Shirey. She said as of Monday, the city had not had a safety committee since. On Wednesday morning, the day after her visit, Macklin called the NewsSun and said the city had held a safety committee T uesday morning, but that she had not been informed about it. P erry said the unions contract with the city flatly states a safety committee to be made up of a representative from every departm ent and union must be in place within 90 days of signing the contract. Macklin said the contract was signed Oct. 1, 2011. The work force safety committee is the big issue of w hy the letter was written, Perry said, but the union alsoi s concerned about individual work loads and proper certifications. Macklin said non-licensed city staff, meaning adminis-t rative personnel and those on call, monitor the electronic, computerized system remotely, without the knowledge of the chief/leado perator. She also said, water leaks are being repaired without licensed operator supervision. Perry said, Were not here to bash. Julian has been good for the city. Our concern is public safety and employee safety Special of the News-SunSEBRING Amber Lynn Jackson now holds the new title of Miss Deland US 2013.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The Miss A von Park and Jr Miss Avon Park Chamber of Commerce Pageant is scheduled to beh eld at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 27 at the South Florida State C ollege Performing Arts Center. There will be 12 young ladies competing fort he title of Miss Avon Park and nine for the title of Jr. Miss Avon Park. T he contestants attend Avon Park High or Middle S chools, Walker Academy or home schooled and live in Avon Park (or are zoned to Avon Park schools).A ll contestants have a 2.5 GPA average and the new Miss Avon Park must maintain that 2.5 GPAthroughout her reign. Each contestant alsoh as references from teachers and/or coaches as well as no d isciplinary actions. Miss Avon Park Chamber of Commerce has been a local tradition for 27 years, however the pageant itselfd ates back to the 1960s. Jr Miss Avon Park was added by former director, Heather Howell, three years ago. This years pageant is q uite unique and unlike any of times past. Part of the queens duty is to choose the theme of the upcoming pageant. The reigning queens, Miss Avon Park Breauna W ashington of Walker Academy and Jr. Miss Avon P ark Taylor Massey of Avon Park Middle, did not have to ponder very long on theirc hoice. Both young ladieslives h ave been touch by heart disease. During her reign, and just after her 16th birthday onA ug. 1, Breauna lost her grandmother to heart disease. Exactly two years ago this m onth, Taylorsmother, Renae Massey, underwent a h eart transplant. Both girls have not only chosen to recognize heart disease in woman during thep ageant, but have chosen their theme as GoRed for Women and the American Heart Association. The young ladies have b een very busy raising money for pageant expenses a nd the GoRed campaign. They have attended speaking engagements, gone door to door to local physicians and business, worked with CathyA lbritton of Florida Hospital Heartland Division and even raised money in coin collection jars at school. This years pageant direct or, Celeste Carr, stated $1 will also be donated to the GoRed campaign for every pageant ticket sold. Tickets may be purchased at the door and the cost is $6 for adults, $4 children 12 and under, a ges 4 and under may enter free. Donations my also be made and are welcomed the evening of the event. Any and all donations to this great cause are welcome. According to the A merican Heart Association, every m inute someones wife, mother, daughter ors ister dies from a form of heart disease. Woman may have subtler, less recognizable symptoms such asp ain or discomfort in t he stomach, jaw, neck o r back, nausea or shortness of breath. Women age 45 and y ounger are more likely t han men to die within a year of their first heart attack. Only 65 percent of women said the first thing they would do ift hey thought they were having a heart attack is to call 911.

C ontinued from A1 By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEYchristopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK For the first time in a decade citya dministration is creating a city safety committee. Its first meeting was at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. Membership, by statute andu nion contract, must include representatives from every department and union. Tammy Macklin, president of the local AFSCME chapter, called the News-SunT uesday afternoon to say she discovered by accident t he safety committee had met that morning. She was concerned because she hadn ot been notified a committee had been formed and w as meeting. The News-Sun contacted city hall. Maria Sutherland, director of administrative services, and Julian Deleon,c ity manager, responded by e-mail. Sutherland also c alled and sent copies of email correspondence between the city and theu nions regional council. Deleon and Sutherland s aid the city has been working to resurrect the safety committee since October2 012. On Oct. 16, 2012, Jessica P antoja, the citys human resources specialist, sent an e-mail to Hector Ramos, the unions regional director. It stated in part: ... since T ammy is not an employee of the city anymore and she w as part of the safety comm ittee ... who will the union appoint as a representative? Ramos replied he would meet with the local and getb ack with you. Sutherland said that was the last time the city heard from the union. The News-Sun was u nable to reach Ramos by press time. In his e-mail to the NewsSun, Deleon said, It has been a long time since we actually had a safety com-m ittee to independently review concerns. I strongly s upport this effort. Mrs. Macklin has notified me and the city council that shew ishes to represent the Avon Park AFSCME work-force o n the safety committee, and on the upcoming health insurance committee meetings, Accordingly, I have forwarded her request toh uman resources and the city clerk for future coordin ation.

The history of this bill goes back to a 2010 court ruling that said Floridas Sunshine Law does not guarantee citizens a right to speak at a public meeting in essence,citizens may be seen butn ot necessarily heard before a board or commission makes a decision. B ills filed the next two years died before they could remedy that decision. This year,HB 23 is expected to be takenu p today in the State Affairs Committee its last stop which is good news for the citizens of Florida. M any boards already welcome citizen comment,and the bill does not offer an unlimited forum to every long-winded speaker. But it offers the people a reasonable opportunityto share their thoughts with those who represent them the least a citizen should expect. Two others bills in particular have b een spotlighted by the First Amendment Foundation,an open-government group based in Tallahassee, H ouse Bill 7161 would create an exemption from public record laws for d ata on studentslearning growth used by a school district or the state Department of Education to evaluate a specific teacher. This information is important because a large part of teach-e rspay will be based on student growth or achievement. Without access to the information,how would the people know how teachers are being judged? A second bill of concern,CS/SB 1 260,would exempt the email addresses of voters from public record. A bill such as this really tests ones commitment to open government. Sure,we might cringe at the thought of political ads filling the inboxes of voters. But sunshine laws aren ot about convenience or what is easy; there about the people having access t o the workings of their government. If we believe that,these two bills should die. An editorial from the Tallahassee Democrat. In the past month I have heard about three teenage suicides in my area alone.P arents and teens need to narrow the gap. They may not realize it or may refuse to acknowledge it,but the one thing teenagers wantm ore than anything is parental approval. Several years ago I was working on an article about teenage depression and sui-c ide and did a survey on the subject. Every response,negative or posi-t ive,was parent-related. They want to please,but feel they will never be ablet o please enough. They want to communicate,but n ot get into shouting matches. They want to understand their parents,b ut also want to be understood. C ommunication has a very simple definition one person speaks and another listens. Young people today are f acing a world of increased tensions,competitiveness, p ressures and demands from parents,teachers and peers. For some,its toom uch to handle and selfdestructive behavior r esults. Psychologists say the internal pressures in adolescents may be greater t han in any other period of human development. Teens have emotional ups and downs with rapid changes from laughter tow ithdrawal. They are particularly sensitive to comments from parents and others,and are easily offended; taking everythings aid as implying criticism. They are particularly likely t o be infuriated by parental criticisms of their clothes,a ppearance,hair style and friends. Parentsfailure to appreciate the sensitiveness of the adolescent is one of them ajor causes of friction at home. Friction between teens and parents is common,but certainly doesnt occur in all homes,and canb e avoided if parents are wise,tactful,tolerant and understanding in their dealings with teenagers. Not unnaturally,many parents find it hard to relax discipline,to balance overprotection with unjustifiable carelessness. If they go too far one way,the adolescent rebels; if they go too far the other way,he or she may get into trouble. For example,it is not easy for a teenage girl to accept that she cannot hitchhike. S he lacks the maturity and t he necessary experience to know the dangers. It is probable there are times when adolescents secretly want restraint. They do not always want to h ave their own way. T here willing to accept occasional refusal as long a s there are good reasons for it,and there hasnt been much restraint in the past. E ven when adolescents a re adjusting reasonably well,a certain amount of friction will exist within t he family. The children,especially w hen close in age,develop a keener sense of competition with one another, prompted by their growing interests in sports,physical d evelopment,scholastic a chievements and the oppos ite sex. Much teasing and disparaging banter is likely between them often seemingly belligerent. Buti n stable homes it usually amounts to no more than letting off steam,so itsb est for parents to relax and recognize thee xchanges for what they a re. Recognition and accept ance by parents of the significance of adolescence int heir childrens lives is a key for both. The children are becoming adults,in body and mind,and nothing can stop or reverse the process. O n the other hand, teenagers still lack the experience that only many more years of living will give them,so they cannot be expected to make mature judgments withouth elp. But help,in the form of parental guidance,cannot avoid all mistakes,an d then the adolescents need understanding,patience, and support. E ven the most conscientious parents must accept that,though they can love and nurture them and indeed must give them standards to live by they cannot live their childrens lives for them.

He arrived at a striking conclusion:There were more than 600,000 hunters this season in the state of Wisconsin. Allow me to restate that number over the last several months. Wisconsins hunters became the eighth largest army in the world. They had more men under arms than in Iran. More than France and Germany combined. These men deployed to the woods of a single American state, Wisconsin,to hunt with firearms. No one was killed. The number of Wisconsin hunters pales in comparison to the 750,000 who hunted in the woods of Pennsylvania and Michigans 700,000 hunters,all of whom have now returned home safely. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia and it literally establishes the fact that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world. Add in the total number of hunters in the other 46 states,its millions more. The point,you ask? America will be forever safe from foreign invasion with that type of homegrown firepower. Hunting is not just a way to fill up the freezer,its truly a matter of national security. Therein lies the reason as to why all enemies, foreign and domestic,want to see us disarmed. Food for thought when next we consider gun control. So if we disregard some assumptions that hunters dont possess the same skills as soldiers, t he question would still remain. What army of 2 million would want to face 30 million,40 million,or even 50 million armed citizens? D ont let the government take control of our guns. Floyd Rider Lake PlacidCould Canada be next?Editor: OK,see? We gotta kill somebody cause were the tough old United States. Remember how last month, just last month,before Obama went to Israel,war with Iran was imminent? Now theres no news about Iran. Did they surrender or something? They were never a threat in the first place. Thats the deal. Oh,wait,it wasnt Iranit was North Korea. Now I remember. What made me think it was Iran? This is straight out of George Orwells War preparation is the way that the elites gobble up excess productive capacity so they dont have to lower prices on commodities like refrigerators and cars and stuff,and make us all equal in standard of living. They have to justify cuts in social programs (butter) because of the self-evident primacy of guns (guns.They burn that stuff up by telling us were under attack,or,at least,we will be by noon tomorrow. Why is it,by the way,that we dont invade Mexico? Certainly something hosed up is going on down there because their people all wanna come here. Since were in the business of attacking countries to change their regime so their peoplewill be better off, s houldnt we fixour friendly neighbor to the south? And what about those scum-bags in Canada thath ave socialized medicine? Next thing you know,it will trickle into Washington and Wyoming the domino effect. The truth about North Korea is that we made (in 2012) an extra special dispensation for South Korea and allowed them to circumvent the Missile Control Technology Regime and expand the range of their missiles to target the entire nation of North Korea. And, we have amped up the belligerence by conducting intimidating and threatening exercises aimed at making North Korea flinch. Meanwhile,the missiles that the North have tested are universally known to be powered by rockets that are inappropriate for ballistic missiles but are,rather,the type of rocket that are used for orbital boost to launch satellites. But,stay tuned for more Loony-Tune episodes. One day,it may well be Canada (closet commies that they are!). Mike Pirkkala SebringPut U.S. Marines at our bordersEditor: The American bogustax system,the IRS,you and those who receive control of the tax money received the President,the VicePresident,the Speaker of the House and many public officials misuse the tax system by taking worldwide tours, taking family members and large groups of friends. The security for these groups is e xtra large. The cost to the taxpayer runs into billions of dollars. Now here is the rest of the story. Every nation on earth r eceives part of your tax dollar. The American tax systemp ays billions to form subsidies and pay for the millions of illegalshealthcare, schooling,drug care and for the prison system that many of them end up. Our prisons are busting at the seams. The millions of illegals have destroyed the housing industry,by putting millions of Americans out of work,they could no longer pay their mortgages and lost their homes and ability to care for their families. The sell-out of Americas health care to insurance companies and drug companies caused by Obama Care and the promoting of cutting Social Security and Medicare is criminal. Most of this present administration executive branch and the gang of eight should all be impeached and going forward. The United States Marines should take control of both our northern and southern borders,including our points of entry into the United States. There should be no tax dollars going to the United Nations. The United States should withdraw from that organization for their act in trying to re-write our Constitution. For Joe Biden,the vicepresident who suggested on national TV that world government should take control of these United States,he should be tried for treason and impeached. Billie E. Jewett Sebring

C M Y K Pete Barone, only one of the accused is cooperating with the state. (Makris the other isnt, Barone stated Wednesday. Makris is accused of holding onto a bag of clothing and shoes worn by Rodriguez and Felipe at the time the murder. Burgos, who is Felipes cousin, offered his Orlando apartment to the alleged killers after they had fled Highlands County. Barone said that a plea deal is likely to be accepted by Makris at the next pretrail conference. Makris and Burgos will appear in court again May 22. Two other defendants, Adriana Rodriguez (no relation to Jonathan Rodriguez) and Nicole Hebert, have already entered pleas. In March Hebert, 20, pleaded no contest to the charge of transporting the two alleged murderers out of the county and Adriana Rodriguez pleaded guilty to the charge of destroying evidence. S he cleaned blood off the walls at the site of the party where Doty was beaten to death. As a part of the plea agreement, both wom en agree to cooperate fully with the prosecution. J OHN LMAST John LMast, 90, passed away peacefully Wednesday, April 1 7, 2013, in Sarasota, Fla. John, who was born to a lovi ng Amish family near Goshen, Ind., in a timeb efore birth certificates were routine, began his exodus from his Amish roots at the age of 17 when he came home with a motorcycle.C ontrary to popular belief, his father, Levi, graciously accepted this youthful rebellion and even occasionally accepted rides in the carst hat followed shortly after that. In his young adulthood, John fought and was wounded in Italy in World War II. In fact, he was in one of the first landing craft on Anzio Beachhead during the invasion in January of 1944. After the war, John met a nd married his second wife, Hazel, and they created their own unique version of The Brady Bunch with their blended family. In order tos upport this ready-made brood, they established the f irst Mast Auto Sales in Goshen, Ind. With subse-q uent moves, those cars he loved as a teenager became his life work as he launched a new version of Mast Auto Sales in Sarasota, Fla., andt hen in Franklin, N.C. After his retirement, he moved back to Lake Placid, Fla., to live on Grassy Lake. This fueled his fishing pas-s ion, and he swore to the bitter end that he had indeed caught the big one in Grassy Lake. Of course, it got away; but if you knew John, you knew the story was true. John was preceded in death by his wife of 56 years, Hazel, in 2007. He is surv ived by only one of his 11 s iblings, Melvin Mast of Morristown, Ariz.; and by his six children, John Mast of Lake Placid, Patricia Mahar of Goshen, Ind., Terry Mast o f Waterville, N.Y., Grace B aty of Sarasota, Fla., Valorie Hipsher of Parker, Colo., and Joy Miller of Franklin, N.C.

TheSouth Florida Water Management Districtwithdrew a set of proposed maps in September of lasty ear towait on an in-depth flood elevation study to be prepared by the SouthwestF lorida Water Management District. Now, officials of the H ighlands County Homeowners Association h ave sent a memo to their members telling them if they have questions aboutt he new proposal or want to appeal any part of it, that t hey need to contact the Highlands County Planning Department with their concerns as soon as possible. Those with computers w ho want to see the map can go to h ttp://www.cfrpc.org/floodmapupdate/ then select Highlands County fromt he sites Floodplain Map Viewer option. T he maps reportedly will be used to prepare ne flood insurance rate maps that m ay be used to determine whether or not home owne rs and/or mortgage holders will be required to carry the sometimes pricey flood insurance. That reportedly could be a mandateforl oans thatare federallybacked. T he idea drew fierce opposition last year -especially when rate schedulesw ere revealed to the public. At that time, those rate s chedules ran between nearly $500 to more than $11,000 annually. T here-work offlood mapsacross the state has been in progress for better than a year, with open houses on the subject dating back to the fall of 2011 when SWFWMD spokesmen held a session to improve identification off looding risks in the areas s urrounding 17 lakes in Highlands County W ater management officialssay their engineers have usednew mapping t echnology and more up-todate data to prepare new flood mapsthat present a m ore current picture of the countys current floodr isks.

Highlands County Planner Martin Fittss aid at that time the appeals will be evaluated by the F ederal Emergency Management Agency.

C M Y K By TAYLOR TUBBS News-Sun correspondentWinning a district game is a great accomplishment, especially in such a flawless manor. The Sebring Blue Streaks traveled to Winter Haven on Tuesday night to take on Lake Gibson in the District 9 -6ATournament, and walked away with a 3-1 victory. Im very happy with h ow we played, said head coach Joe Sinness. We were consistent, and we had great pitching, hitting, and defense all around. Hannah Lollis took to the mound for all seven innings, throwing an impressive eight strike outs with only one walk. Sebring got things off to a good start by scoring two of their three runs in the first inning. Kara Faircloth singled, followed by another single by Kiana Antone. Tayla DaSilva and Carly Hoffner brought them around and across home plate, each getting an RBI and giving the Streaks a 2-0 lead that persisted until the bottom of the third. In the third, Lake Gibson got on board from an error, narrowing the lead to a single run. In the seventh DaSilva struck again, taking the wind out of the Lady Bravess sails for the final time by stealing home. It was a great slide, said Sinness. It really crushed Lake Gibsons spirits. We could literally see their shoulders drop. Spring is my favorite time of the year for bass fishing. Although the seasonal change isnt as dramatic here in Florida as it is up north, its still a significant change, and for bass fishermen, that change represents some great fishing opportunities. A s the water temperatures warm, fishing gets better and better every day, as evidenced just in the past cou-p le of weeks by the outstanding catches in many of o ur lakes in Highlands County. I n the past few weeks Ive had the opportunity to fish L ake Istokpoga, Lake Josephine, Lake June, Lake Glenada and Lake Lotela, and the fish have been cooperating on most every trip. Istokpoga, the fifth largest lake in Florida, has produced best with a number of fish in the 3to 8-pound range, followed closely by Lake June. Although the majority of the bass have spawned out, there is still evidence of a few spawners in some of the deeper lakes. Drifting over a grass bed on Lake June I saw two huge bass on separate beds, sharing the ritual with their smaller male partners. This time of year there are many bass tournaments held on the weekends, primarily Sundays, and the results have been just short of phenomenal. Two weeks ago, in a tournament on Lake Istokpoga, five teams weighed in 30 lbs or more. Thats an average of six pounds per fish. For you non-tournament anglers, a typical tournament allows two fishermen to catch and keep their combined five largest fish for weighing in, and after weigh-in all fish are released alive. Great care is taken with every fish since points (or weight) is deducted for injured or dead fish. When you consider a com bined five fish total weight in excess of 30 pounds, y oure talking about some mighty nice fish. B ut even more amazing is t he fact that in order to catch and cull down to their largest five fish, they may have caught dozens of smaller fish. It just proves how strong our fishery really is. But its not just the tournament anglers who are enjoying the springtime bonanza. Ive heard from dozens of readers who have had great success, not only on Lake Istokpoga, but all the lakes in Highlands County. Josey Ervin, who fishes almost every day with her husband Harry on Lake Glenada, Lake Lelia or Lake Lotela has had some nice catches recently. She sent me pictures of an eight-pound wallhanger caught at Lake Glenada in 14 feet of water, as well as a six-pounder on Lake Lelia. My fishing buddy Burt Watkins was out with his nephew, Jack Crunkelton on Lake Anoka, and they boateda nice 5 1/2 pounder, along with some 2-3 pound fish. And even the shore fishermen are proving that spring is a good time to fish, as evidenced by Pastor Derek Frymiers 8 pounder caught off the boardwalk at Lake Istokpoga. So what makes this the best time of the year to be fishing for largemouth bass? Well, there are a number SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, April 19, 2013 Page B4 Fishin Around...

News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Their season may have come to an end Tuesday, but Breauna Corley leads a core of strong underclassmen that has Lake Placid softball headed in the right direction. By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe topsy-turvy Avon Park baseball season was on the upswing Tuesday night, as a late rally blew the doors off the host Booker Tornadoes in a 144 win. S ince starting the season with nine straight wins, the Devils have gone just 6-8 since, with their bombastic bats too often sporadic, and a solid defense sometimes springing leaks. Tuesdays win in Sarasota, though, saw Booker break out to an early lead with three runs in the first and one in the third. Avon Park scratched for one in the second before a four-run fourth edged them into the lead. By then, Kenny McGrath was on in relief and the left-hander held the Tornadoes in check the rest of the way, allowing just one hit while striking out six in three innings of work. The big rally came in the sixth as the Devils p ushed nine runs across the plate before McGrath set the side down in order to end it early on the mercy rule. Kyle Kelley and Lou Martinez lead the offense with three hits each, with Kelley and Torri Pringle each accounting for three RBI. Avon Park finished the regular season Thursday night at Hardee against the Wildcats, and will head to Frostproof Monday to face the Mulberry Tigers in the District 10-4A Tournament opener. Devils blast Booker By ALEX COYNE News-Sun correspondentLake Placid Softball traveled to Mulberry Tuesday night for a second-round District 10-4ATournament game. But their strong season came to an ultimate end as they fell short on the road to the Tigers in a mercy-rule shortened, six-inning game, 11-1. But though their season was ended, senior Laine Weber-Callahan was more than satisfied with her final high school season. I couldnt have asked for a better season with a better group of girls, she stated. My teammates made it truly amazing. The game started out slow, due to the lack of runs for both the Dragons and the Tigers in the first two innings. In the top of the third inning, Raveen Gobourne scored the first run of the night. Mulberry bounced back in the bottom of the third with five runs of their own, making it a 5-1 game entering the fourth inning. Both teams failed to score in the fourth inning, freezing the score at 5-1 and keeping the Dragons within relative reach. But Lake Placid was left scoreless in the top of the fifth, and Mulberry earned four runs to make it a 9-1 game and pushing it further out of reach. With ever-extending deficit, the Dragons knew that they had to come up with some runs, but fell short when they were left empty-handed in the top of the sixth inning. The Tigers scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth, forcing a 10-run rule to end the game early with the scoreboard reading 11-1. It was a great season and I wouldnt trade the whole experience for anything in the world, senior Shelby Bertram said. And while it was a great season, with many big wins that seniors Bertram, WeberCallahan and Taylor Test played a big part in, this likely isnt just a momentary blip on the radar. While losing these important players, the Lady Dragons will return a strong core of underclassmen including the likes of Anne WeberCallahan, Courtney Delaney, Breauna Corley, Holly Krett, Gobourne, Shannon Huber, Hali Pollard, Carly Hopper and Tamija Douglas. Aturnaround season for Lake Placid softball, that has it moving in the right direction for years to come. News-Sun Sports Editor Dan Hoehne contributed to this article.

First and foremost would be warming of the water. A s our lake temperatures w arm from the high 50s, and low 60s to the 70and 80-degree range, the metabolism of largemouth bass increases as well. As a cold blooded creature, a bass is comfortable at almost any temperature, but the difference is they feed much more when their body temperature (lake temperature) increases. This increase in their metabolic rate gives them reason to move into shallower areas where baitfishes are more abundant and they become much more accessible to fishermen. The spawn, which takes place each year in late winter, early spring is also a reason for fish to be shallower. Although the spawn typically is kicked off by the first full moon in January, m any fish will spawn even earlier, as they did this year, due to the warmer winter water temperatures. But as often happens, the spawn was interrupted many times in January and February, running the bass off their beds due to cold fronts, dropping water temperatures and high winds. As a result, many bass that started the spawning ritual in January, never completely spawned out until March or April. With higher daytime temperatures, longer daylighth ours and an abundance of baitfish in the shallows, the post-spawn fish, recovering from their nesting activities, a re eager to feed. Thats good news for us f ishermen! S o how long will the good times last? Typically through June, and by then the water temperatures have gotten too warm, forcing many fish out of shallow water since high water temperatures hold less oxygen, and giving them reason to seek refuge in deeper, cooler, oxygen-rich water. Bass will still be plentiful and available through the summer months, but unlike this time of the year when they can be found feeding all day long, early morning will provide the best results. So put off mowing the grass, cleaning out the garage or planting those flowers this weekend and take advantage of the best b ass fishing of the year. There are a lot of people up north whod love to have the opportunity we have in o ur own backyards.

I didnt realize eating beans,peanuts,peas,l entils,soy or tofu was an issue. I eat these foods frequently,and I s till hurt. Can you tell me more? D.B.,Houston,Texas Answer: We have many medicat ions for autoimmune diseases,but what you eat could negate the e ffects of your drug. I feel the avoidance of lectin-containing foods is wise for people who have a pain s yndrome like lupus,MS,rheumatoid or Lou Gehrigs. Im not saying these food groups are bad,they have fiber and some nutrients,its just that some people experiencef lares from the consumption. Research shows that these foods m ay harm the delicate intestinal lining. If they pokedmicroscopic holes in there,then lectins and par-t ially undigested food globules would leak into your bloodstream. I s called leaky gutbut medically-speak refers to this process as increased intestinal permeability o r intestinal malabsorption.Once t he door opens in your small intestine,and your intestinal villi are compromised,all kinds of symptoms occur. I t happens like this: Lectins and undigested globules of food proteins are spotted in your bloodstream b ecause they leaked out of your gut. They are also spotted in an organ (because they will park themselves eventually). T hen your immune system gets fired up. Your immune cells c rank out pro-inflammatory cytokines which cause pain ands welling and attack the organ where they s ee the foreign protein parked.For example,if they park themselves iny our thyroid,you might have Hashimotos or Graves,parked in y our myelin,it spells more neuropathy for multiple sclerosis. Your joints,and it flares rheumatoid arthritis. Think of pro-inflammatory cytokines as pain-causing chemi-c als that you dont want hanging around in excess. I n case you share my column with clinicians,it goes like this: There are many food antigens,a mong them lectin and gluten (gliadin p ermeability,leading to intestinal malabsorption. You see an up-regulation of the NF-Kappa B pathway w hich launches production of proi nflammatory cytokines; food antigens can counter the positive effects of medication because they cause production of inflammatory cytokines,histamine or interferong amma. The theory suggests that foods (like wheat,cereal,beans,tofu and lentils) could spell trouble for autoimmune sufferers. This is whyt he paleo diet,and the work by Dr. Loren Cordain and Dr. David Wolfe is gaining so much traction,it is grain and lectin free and I think it couldr esolve many pain syndromes. I also recommend DougK auffmans Phase One diet. Foods with the highe st lectin activity include grains (espec ially wheat,legumes (especially soy),nuts, dairy and nightshades like eggplant,p eppers,potatoes,tomatoes and others. Id give this diet 4 months at l east,forever if you feel better. Many ask if soaking beans removes the lectins,I think it can help but I dont think it is 100 percent effective. Protect your gut lin-i ng with probiotics,digestive enzymes and avoidance of r efined/processed foods.

The best diet for people with autoimmune disease A lot of seniors are con-c erned about how The Patient Protectiona nd Affordable CareA ct (Obamacare) will a ffect seniors and their Medicare coverage. I f you have standard Medicare (red,white and blue card) there will proba-b ly be little or no effect. There is a proposal,not yet p assed,to increase premiums on high-income seniors. The money that is being taken from Medicare is coming from the Advantage Plans( Humana,Cigna BC/BS, etc). These plans,on avera ge,receive 9-13 percent higher payment per beneficiary than traditionalM edicare. Obamacare plans to narrow the gap,limit a mounts that can be spent on administrative costs,and use the savings to fund rewards t o quality plans and other parts of health care spending. Obamacare is closing the doughnut holein Part Dc overage for prescription drugs incrementally until 2020. Then the hole will be completely closed. Some of you may have already seens ome savings. In some areas of Florida, l arge practices such as Mayo Clinic Jacksonville are nol onger accepting Medicare. Here in Highlands County,I, like most of the doctors,still take both traditional and Medicare Advantage plans. W e have had a few of the primary care doctors close their practices. Why is this happening? One of the biggest problems is theS ustainable Growth Formula (SGRThe SGR was introduced in 1989 to help control costs. Medicare decides on a total payment goal for the fiscal year. If more people get sick or more services are rendered than the target, the amount paid to each doctor goes down by an amount to keep the total paid the same. Cost of delivering a service no longer influences the amount paid for it. Congress recognizes that large cuts will drive many doctors out of business There have been 14 shortterm fixes since 2002,the latest blocking a 27 percent cut in December 2012. According to the AMA,the overall payments to doctors have increased by 4 percent and costs have increased by 20 percent. Congress is finally addressing an alternative for the SGR,but like all things in Congress lately,there is difficulty in getting bipartisan support. Medicare payments to doctors,like every other federally funded program,got hit with a 2 percent decrease as part of the sequester. All the doctors in Highlands County want to continue to treat Medicare patients,so thank your primary care doctor for staying and,if you want,write your congressman about fixing the SGR. Dr. Diana D. Carr treats patients at The Hand & Shoulder Specialists offering specialty care close to home with a concentration on healing shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand problems. What is going on with Medicare? Guest Column D r. Diana Carr HEALTHSNAPSHOTS Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen The Paleo Diet may help those who suffer from autoimmune disorders. Research shows foods with lectin may need to be avoided Associated PressWASHINGTON A s enior Democratic senator who helped write President Barack Obamas health care law stunned administration officials Wednesday,saying openly he thinks its headed for a train wreck. I just see a huge train wreck coming down, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus,DMont.,told Obamas health care chief during a routine budget hearing that suddenly turned tense. Baucus is the first top Democrat to publicly voice fears about the rollout of the new health care law, designed to bring coverage to some 30 million uninsured Americans through a mix of government programs and tax credits for private insurance that start next year. The six-term Democrat is also expected to face a tough re-election in 2014. Baucus is still trying to recover from approval ratings that nosedived amid displeasure with the health care law in his home state. Normally low-key and supportive,Baucus challenged Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius atW ednesdays hearing. He said hes very concernedthat new health insurance marketplaces for consumers and small businesses will not open on time in every state,and that if they do,they might just flop because residents dont have the information they need to make choices. The administrations public information campaign on the benefits of the Affordable Care Act deserves a failing grade, he told Sebelius. You need to fix this. Responding to Baucus, Sebelius pointedly noted that Republicans in Congress last year blocked funding for carrying out the health care law,and she had to resort to raiding other departmental funds that were legally available to her. The administration is asking for $1.5 billion in next years budget,and Republicans dont seem willing to grant that either. I dont know what hes looking at,Sebelius told reporters following her out of the room after Baucus adjourned the hearing. Top Dem sees train wreck for Obama health law MCT Sen. Max Baucus speaks with President Barack Obama during a news conference about health care reform.

C M Y K BrandpointWhen youre done with spring cleaning,you may assume youve eliminateda ny allergy triggers that were lurking in your home. But the truth is,if you dont clean ther ight way,you might be making the problem worse. More than 40 million A mericans suffer from allergy problems,and 25 million h ave asthma. If your cleaning routine doesnt specifically focus on allergen control andr emoval,you may be only moving dust around,sending a llergens and irritating cleaning chemicals into the air which can affect allergy and asthma symptoms. To maximize your cleaning effortsa nd reduce allergens,consider these simple tips from the a sthma and allergy friendly Certification Program,the healthy home initiative of then onprofit Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America ( AAFA): Use a certified vacuum that has a high efficiency filt er with tight seams and seals to prevent particles from leaking out while you vacuum. Also,choose a style that requires minimal exposured uring canister emptying or bag changes. Dusting improperly can actually increase airborne dust particles in your home.U se moist cloths or special dry dusters designed to trap a nd lock dust from hard surfaces. Use vacuum attach-m ents to remove dust from soft and upholstered surfaces. Certain cleaning products can also contribute to airborne irritants,especiallyi f they contain harsh chemicals,strong odors or volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Choose products that contain none of these irritants,buta lso beware of green labels,as some of these solutions may be made with natural allergenic ingredients, such as lemon,coconut or tea-tree oils. Rodent dander and cockroach particles are common household asthma triggers. However,some pesticides may do more harm than good for people with asthma and allergies. If you have a pest problem,look for an exterminator with expertise in integrated pest management and experience treating homes of people with asthma. Whether you have a cat or dog,pet dander is present in most U.S. homes. If it is possible,keep pets out of the bedroom. Your cleaning routine should include frequently washing linens in your bedroom,where cat or dog dander can settle. Place certified allergen barrier covers on your mattresses and pillows. Wash your bedding at least once a week in 130 degree or higher hot water to kill dust mites and their eggs. Mold,a common allergy trigger,can grow anywhere in your home where moisture is present. Look for cleaning products that help kill and prevent mold from returning. Also,keep household humidity below 50 percent and fix leaky pipes and cracks to reduce standing puddles of moisture where mold can prosper. If children live in your home,look for certified plush t oys. Dust mites,mold and pet dander can accumulate on plush toys over time.C ertified toys can be placed in the freezer for 24 hours, t hen rinsed in cold water to remove dead mites. Dry completely. Do this monthly. Lots of air passes through window areas,and airborne dust and allergens accumulate on all types of window treatments whicha re rarely cleaned. In the family room and throughout the home,replace big,heavy linen drapes with more sensible window treatments such a s wood blinds or flat screens that are easy to wipe and keep clean. If your home uses central air conditioning or heat,r eplace the filter in the machine regularly,typically every 30 to 90 days. Choosea n HVAC filter that has been certified to effectively capture fine airborne particlesl ike pollen,dust and dander. Keep in mind that while c onsumers spend nearly $18 billion annually on asthma and allergy medications,theya lso spend more than $20 billion on nonmedical consumer p roducts marketed for people with asthma and allergies such as room air cleaners, bedding,vacuums and more, according to AAFA. Whiled emand for such products continues to grow,there is litt le regulation governing product claims,the Foundation notes. AAFAs asthma a nd allergy friendly Certification Program helps consumers evalu-a te and verify the allergen-reducing effectiveness of a varietyo f products,from cleaning supplies, a ir cleaning devices and vacuums to toys,bedding,h ome improvement products,paints, c lothes washers and more.

T he church is at 154 N. Franklin St.Christian Training Church SEBRING Rev. Linda M. Downing will bring the message t itled The Fall of Babylon:Part 2 at the Sunday morning service. The T he true story is told of a pair of Michigan robbers who entered a r ecord shop nervously waving guns in the air. The first one shouted, Nobody move!When his partnerm oved,the startled first bandit shot him. M any people treat their mouths like loaded guns,as they frequently shoot them off.Due to the pain and injury it can cause,one should be extremelyc areful with a loaded gun. Likewise,due to the pain and i njury it can cause,one should be just as careful with a loaded mouth! The Bible teaches us about the problems o ur tongues can create. James 3:5-10 reads,So also the tongue is a small part o f the body,and yet it boasts of great things. See how great a forest is set aflame by such a small fire! And the tongue is a f ire,the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body,and sets on fire the course of our life,and is set on fire by hell. For every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and creatures of the sea,is tamed and has been tamed by the human race. But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil and full of deadly poison.W ith it we bless our Lord and Father,and w ith it we curse men,who have been made in the liken ess of God; from the same mouth come both blessing and cursing. My brethren,t hese things ought not to be this way. A nd James was right. We ought not use our mouths the way we often do,yet we do it still. So how do wem ake the change? Starting today,let u s focus more attention on the things we say.Are the words we use beneficial? Do they serve a purpose that is good? Doeso ur language encourage those around us? Instead of allowing our words to be d estructive,let us be productive with our speech. Rather than tearing one another down, l et us use our tongues to build one another up.

C M Y K By JAKE COYLE AP Entertainment WriterEarly in the sleek sci-fi t hriller Oblivion,Tom Cruise,as a flyboy repairman l iving a removed,Jetsonslike existence above an invaded and deserted Earth,i ntones his home sickness. I cant shake the feeling t hat despite all thats happened,Earth is still my home,he narrates. O ne cant help but chortle and wonder if Cruise is speaking for himself. The chiseled blockbuster star carries so much baggage nowa-d ays that an audiences relationship to him often feels downright alien. But Cruise,that unrelenting bullet of headlongm omentum,is undaunted. He keeps coming back with even b igger films,most of which, despite it all,he reliably pro-p els even if its become harder to see Cruise as anything other than himself. I n Oblivion,the second film from Tron:Legac d irector Joseph Kosinski,he plays Jack Harper,a patroller of the drone-controlled skieso ver Earth. From a sparse dock where he lives with his s upervisor and girlfriend, Victoria (Andrea Riseborough),Jack makes d aily flights in his spacecraft to the Earths barren surface. re the mop-up crew,he says. He tells us that its been 60 y ears since aliens invaded, first knocking out the moon (goodnight moon,indeed) and then leading to a devastating nuclear war.Thoughh umans,he says,won out, they had to abandon the plane s surface (New York is buried up to the Empire StateB uildings needle),taking refuge on a moon of Saturn. On a desolate Earth,the only beings remaining are hiding bands of S cavengers (Scavs) that look something like a cross between the Tusken Raiders of Star Warsand Milli Vanilli. Monitoring the land are white,round drones that appear like giant,floating cue balls from afar,but menacing robot killers up close. Occasionally, they need servicing from Jack (Cruise as WALL-E). He avoids theirb lasters by authenticating himself,but as they bleep and b lork,he cowers anxiously not entirely certain there o n the same team. His faith is greater with Victoria,who guides his movements from her computerized desk. Her superior( played with a folksy Southern accent by Melissa Leo) is seen only in scratchy video communiques. So we are back in a posta pocalyptic world,a place to which movies lately cant help returning,all with various images of wrecked ironic monuments and unpeopled landscapes. We have seen many of the elements of Oblivionin countless science fiction tales before. But weve seldom seen them more beautifully rendered. Kosinski,who based the film on the ideas of his unpublished graphic novel,is an expert in 3-D modeling and computer graphics. His Tron:Legac was a critical flop for its muddled story but was never-t heless remarkable for its elegant digital architecture ( including the more natural but no less exquisitely structured face of Olivia Wilde).H is two movies now seem to owe as much to the iPod as a nything:glossy clean surfaces with throbbing electronic scores (Daft Punk for Tron,M83 for Oblivion). He filmed Oblivionwith cinematographer Claudio Miranda,who also shot ron:Legacand since didt he gorgeous filmography of Ang Lees Life of Pi.In Oblivion,they achieve a symphony of otherworldly sleekness when Victoria dis-r obes and dives into a pool on their space station,her d ark silhouette outlined on the sunset stratosphere. We,t oo,bath in the imagery. This carefully organized world is thrown when a NASA shuttle crashes with an astronaut,Julia (OlgaK urylenko),who seems to recognize Jack. His own memory has been scrubbed but flickers with images from his past. A s the film builds,it plays with familiar sci-fi themes of identity,memory,faith in institutions and human nature. Little can be said about Morgan Freemans character without giving much away,but suffice to say that he enters the film in shades,lighting a cigar and wearing a cape. Yes,a cape. Kosinski could have chucked all his visual effects and just gone with a cape-clad Freeman.

I am hopelessly in love with my wife and still see her as the most beauti-f ul woman in the world. I have always been selfemployed and have sometimes been at the extremes of feast or famine. Duringt he bad times,I often worked 110-plus-hour weeks to save the ship. E ach time things have gotten really bad,my wife has had an affair to make upf or the time,money and attention I cant provide h er. I found out about her latest affair (her third I found a secret cellphone i n her purse. For the last eight months,when she visi ted our daughter at college, she would check into a hotel with her lover. I feel responsib le for failing to meet her needs. S he doesnt want a divorce,but admits she doubtss he will ever fully stop dating,and s ays the effort she puts into deceiving me is proof she loves me and d oesnt want to hurt my feelings. I am amazed at the number of men willing to have sex with a married woman.M y heart is broken,and I feel like a failure. Am I a fool to keep fighting for her? Hopelessly in Love D ear Hopelessly in Love: I hope you realize t hat as beautifulas your wife may be,your relation-s hip with her isnt a healthy one. Please go online and look up the definition of the word codependency. If your wife loved you, s he would prove it by doing everything in her power to help you through the rough periods,including finding a job to help with the bills,n ot sneaking around with other men. That she would claim her deceit is proof of her love,and that you would believe her,is amazing. This woman has shown no remorse; she has told you she doesnt plan to be faithful in the future. Do not let her hoodwink you into believing her infidelity is your fault because you worked yourself nearly intoa physical collapse trying to save your business and prov ide for her. If you accept that,it would be foolish. Dear Abby: What is proper etiquette for some-o ne who takes pictures at a funeral? I am a recent widow who received a package from an out-of-town relative. In itw ere several envelopes for my family. One of them was for my sister,who lives 40m iles away. I gave my sister a call and told her it looked like it contained a stack ofp ictures. She said I should go ahead and open it. I nside were photos taken at my husbands funeral pictures of the funeralh ome,inside the church,the casket,and some of me and m y daughter sitting at the gravesite. Abby,it was like going to the funeral all over again! The latter werep articularly disturbing. T o me,it felt like voyeurism. Why would some-o ne take pictures of such a sad e vent? I hope you print this and tell me and others what your opinion is s o they may heed your advice particularly my inlaws. Grieving Widow in Indiana D ear Grieving: Please accept my sympathy for the loss of your husband. I can only imagine the shock you experienced when you sawt he photos. No one should take pictures at funerals w ithout first having received permission fromt he immediate survivors such as the widow,widower or children. That said,the practice is not as uncommon as youm ight think. After a period of time,family members have been known to find comfort in having them. Short of asking your per-m ission,your trauma could have been avoided had the relative who sent the pictures thought to label the envelopes or include a note explaining what was inside them. That way,you wouldt have had to view them until you were ready if ever and were prepared emotionally. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Elegant if familiar, futuristic Oblivion is mesmerizing Movie Review Oblivion R ating: PG-13 (sci-fi action v iolence, brief strong lang uage, some sensuality) R unning time: 124 minutes Review: (of 4 Dear Abby LAS VEGAS (AP Zack Snyder is hoping his Superman reboot Man of Steelturns out to be not just a blockbuster,but a movie with a capital M. There are panoramic aerial battles on Krypton,there are touching moments between young Clark Kent and both his biological and adoptive fathers,there are close-ups of a fist pounding into ice,and there is lots and lots of bigbudget flying. I wanted the movie to be a big movie-going experience,full of action,full of emotion and full of the biggest super hero in the world,Snyder said Tuesday before giving the Las Vegas movie theater convention CinemaCon a brief glimpse. I wanted to give to the cinemas of the world a big,giant moviemovie. The film follows in the modern tradition of the naturalistic superhero movies. It takes place in a grittylooking, colordrained world of grays, brown and icy blues. All the better to set off that red cape. The scenes of Clark Kents Kansas childhood are drenched in Americana,complete with freshly laundered flannels flapping on the clothes line. Snyder,who also directed the superhero film atchmen,said he wanted to find a poignancy to add to the familiar story. We get some hints of that tenderness in conversations between Kent and his farmer father,played by Kevin Costner,as they struggle to keep the young superheros powers hidden. But then we see Kent grow up,learn to fly and begin to take on an assortment of foes. Its this part of the legend not the troubled childhood that seems to most animate Snyder. ve been a big fan of the character my whole life,he said. He is the greatest super hero. Theres no competition between super heroes,but if there was,hed win. The new franchise is anchored by Henry Cavill,a British actor who starred on the Showtime series The Tudorsbefore taking on the mantle of the man of steel. His is the only chiseled face in the trailer not instantly recognizable as a mega-star. Man of Steel promises poignancy from Superman Zack Snyder Man of Steel directorThers no compeition between super heroes,but if there was, hed win.

C M Y K B12 PA GE News-Sun Friiday, April 19, 2013 You get your coffee from Starbucks.The company may be super-corporate,but they offer Fair Trade coffees,which ensure that coffee farmers are paid a fair price,and invest in social programs in coffee-growing c ommunities. If you prefer supporting nonchain coffee shops, ask them to offer Fair Trade selections. You download m usic to an MP3 player.Have you s topped buying CDs? Youre already cutting waste. You buy or sell on eBay.You get rid of stuff you dont need without trashing it,and y ou reduce the amount of packaging used to make new products. You dont rinse before putting dishes i n the dishwasher.C onsumer Reports tests s how rinsing first doesnt improve cleaning. By skipping this step,youll save up to 20 gallons of water per load,or 6,500 gallons per year.GREEN GLOSSARYBeing greenmeans being aware of your responsibility to the environment and to the community. Here are other common green terms and their meanings: Organic:O rganic food is produced by farmers who place an emphasis on renewable resources and soil and water conservation,and use minimal pesticides as defined by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Organic meat, poultry,eggs and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. The term organicmust be certified by the USDA. Visit w ww.ams.usda.gov/ nopfor more information. Fair Trade:Fair Trade helps family farmers in developing countries gain direct access to international markets,allowing them to compete fairly and receive a fair price. This also deters cost-cutting practices that diminish quality. Look for the fair trade certification on products,and visitwww.transfairusa.orgfor information. Shade grown:If you buy F air Trade certified coffee,tea and chocolate,it is usually shade-grown. This means that the products you buy provide shelter for migratory birds and help reduce global warming. Sustainable:A method o f harvesting or using a resource so that the resource is not depleted or permanentl y damaged. Biodegradable:The product has the ability to b reak down,safely and relat ively quickly,by biological means,into raw materials of nature and disappear into the environment.TAKE IT BACKWe cant all be green all the time,but there are ways to offset the damage we do. TerraPass (w ww.terrapass. com) helps reverse the global warming impact of your cars CO2 emissions. You pay a certain amount a year which helps fund clean energy projects that reduce industrial carbon dioxide emissions. You even get a w indshield sticker to show others your do-gooder side.WHAS YOUR IMPACT?Visit w ww.myfootprint.org and fill in your information,such as ZIP code. The site does the calculations to tell you how big an ecological footprint youre leaving on the Earth. In other words,how many acres of land are you using up? The results may surprise you. BYERINWADEThe Dallas Morning Newss a big world out there,and keeping it clean is a big task sometimes too big,with our busy lives. Thats why that occasional soda bottle ends up in the garbage can instead of the recycling bin,and that box of packaged food seems like such a better deal than the locally grown, organic version. But,believe it or not,little things can make a big difference. So if youre interested in going green,even just a little bit,dont be i ntimidated. Its not about judging, says Kate Macaulay,co-owner with Michael Johnson of Green Living in Lakewood,Texas. One woman said she was scared to come into the store because she drives an SUV,Macaulay says. But were just happy she came in. Going green doesnt make your life more complicated; its about simplifying. By making small c hanges you can save water and electricity,live healthier and help protect the environment. Macaulay and Johnson learned a lot about simplicity when they lived overseas. Wd see people live more simply,and to them its a way of life,Macaulay says. Johnson had a pair of shoes withh oles in the bottom and threw them in the trash,thinking they were useless. But a woman who cared f or their home asked if she could have them. Its about finding a use for everything,Macaulay says. We wanted to apply what we learned when we came home and try to influence others. We talked with them about simple,low-cost eco-changes that can make a big impact. You can build your eco-conscience gradually,and learn to love how easy it is and how good it feels to go green.LAUNDRY ROOMOLD WAY: Regular laundry detergent NEW WAY: Green laundry detergent WHY? Most regular detergents are petroleum-based and contain chemicals that are discharged into our water system, which can harm aquatic life. Green detergents such as Seventh Generation and Ecover are nontoxic and made with plant-based, biodegradable ingredients, saving oil for other uses. COST: Green detergents also use fewer fillers, so you dont need to use as much per load of laundry, Macaulay says. Select mass-merchandisers carry a selection of green cleaning products.LIVING ROOMOLD WAY: Incandescent light bulbs NEW WAY: Compact fluorescent light bulbs WHY? According to Energy Star, a government-backed program that helps people protect the environment through energy efficiency, compact fluorescent light bulbs use 66 percent less energy than a standard incandescent bulb and last up to 10 times longer. They also are cooler to the touch. COST: Replacing a 100-watt incandescent with a 23-watt compact fluorescent bulb can save you about $20 in energy costs over about three years, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.KITCHENOLD WAY: Using your stove or oven to cook small amounts of food NEW WAY: Opting for your microwave or toaster oven WHY? Microwaves and toasters generate less heat than stoves or ovens, so you can save energy and air conditioning costs in the summer. COST: Using the microwave or toaster oven to reheat small portions reduces the amount of cooking energy up to 80 percent. OLD WAY: Running your faucet while you wash the dishes NEW WAY: Installing an aerator WHY? Aerators mix air into water, which cuts water flow and reduces splashing. However, using an aerator wont deprive you of strong water pressure. COST: Aerators can cost as little as $2, and they reduce water flow from the faucet to 1.5 gallons per minute, cutting water usage by about 50 percent.You can find aerators at your home supply store and online.BATHROOMOLD WAY: Regular showerhead NEW WAY: Low-flow showerhead WHY? Showers account for 32 percent of home water use, according to the National Resources Defense Council. Low-flow showerheads (similar to faucet aerators) deliver no more than 2.5 gallons per minute compared to standard showerheads, which release about 4.5 gallons per minute. COST: A family of four using low-flow showerheads can save about 20,000 gallons of water a year, according to the council.GARDENOLD WAY: Gas lawnmower NEW WAY: Push lawnmower WHY? Push lawnmowers arent new, but there healthier for you and the environment.You dont have to buy gas, you get more exercise, and you dont pollute the air or your lungs. COST: A push mower is available at Target, Home Depot and elsewhere for about $90, while gas lawnmowers cost about $200 to $400 (not including gas).
