City officials mulled over whether filling the hole or placing warning signs around it was the best solution for four years. The city council voted in the fall to finally fill the dredge hole at a cost of $114,000. The dredge project began in late February and was completed around the first of April. Water and bacteria levels at City Pier were tested two weeks ago by the Department of Health and all the results came back within safe levels. Plans are in the works for a re-opening celebration event at City Pier in the coming weeks. But while one access point to the lake has re-opened, another will be temporarily closed again starting next week. Noethlich advised boaters and Veterans Beach visitors that the boat ramp will once again be shut down for about two weeks beginning Monday for a sheet piling project to improve the boat ramp. No boats, skis or other watercraft will be permitted on the ramp until the project is complete. It could be sooner than two weeks to complete.

Aperfect day for swimming, boating, golf, or having a lazy swing ina hammock. What else would a person do? Certainly not waste an afternoon on a dull movie called Bully, being shown at Sebring Church of the Brethren and co-sponsored by Peace of Highlands County. Why bother seeing children beaten up on buses, tackled on playgrounds and harassed in halls and lunchrooms? Kids will be kids theyll outgrow it. But how about the ones who are physically and emotionally handicapped for life? And what about the ones who commit suicide and have no more life? Shame on you, administrators, members of Highlands County Commission and parents and grandparents. You were all given the opportunity to attend this movie through the newspaper, library and county officials. Where were you? Marilyn Jacobs SebringMisuse of political power is our greatest threatEditor: The Chicago gang style takeover of America, The Rev. Wright of .0. America, should be proud of his star pupil protg. Secure Americas borders first, not last! The American people should demand that our Marine Corps should secure Americas borders first. The President and the gang of eight should all be impeached for the overthrow of America attempt, at bypassing the control of Americas borders and the bypassing of our Constitution and our immigration laws. All behind closed doors. The United States Marine Corps should take over from Homeland Security who has failed America for more than 50 years. Our immigration laws and the protection of our Constitution that has been under attack by our present executive branch of government. The United States Coast Guard should have control of points of entry by sea. Our Congress and Senate have lost complete control of the representation of the American people. Any law or laws adopted by the President, the gang of eight that do not represent the will of we, the people, should be ignored by the people. This attempt by the gang of eight and the executive branch is an attempt to overthrow our nation. This attempt should be dealt with to the fullest extent of our laws. All involved should be charged with treason against all Americans. The misuse of political power is the greatest threat to America in more than 200 years and should not be ignored by we, the people. An example should be made for future elected officials to see. To do nothing is to lose our nation. Act now. Write and let those Congressmen and women and those in the Senate who still believe in the Constitution and immigration laws and due process. If we, the people, have to take back by force our nation, it will not be a pretty sight. The deaths, by far, out number the Civil War.Act before it is too late. Billie E. Jewett Sebring Go v. Rick Scott pretty much got it right last week. T he governor signed into law ethics legislation that should make it easier for the state to enforce penalties against public officials who cross the line. He also enact-e d a campaign finance law that increases campaign cont ributions. He took a dim view, however, of lawmakersattempta t alimony reform and vetoed it. Though an override is u nlikely, the veto shouldnt be the end of the story. Applaud the governor for moving ahead with ethics reforms. ... T he new law makes the commission less of a joke, m ore of an enforcer. It also bans former legislators from lobbying any state agency fort wo years after they leave office. Usually, term-limited l egislators or those whove lost their shot at reelection hang out theirl obbying shingles so quickly their leather seats in the House or Senate chamber h avent yet cooled. The new provision puts a little space b etween former legislators hitting up the colleagues left behind for special favors on behalf of special interests that count on laws to work f or them, not for the public. In certain cases, legislators will be prohibited from taking second jobs on public payrolls, which could help tamp down on those no-show positions. And officials will be able to put their assets in blind trusts, which some critics say will allow them to hide wealth. A nother new law enacted this week will impose more frequent reporting deadlines o n candidates for political office and raises maximum contribution limits. ... As for hard-fought legislat ion that would have ended permanent alimony and pres umed that divorcing parents w ould share custody of their c hildren, it was a no-go for Gov. Scott. He vetoed the b ill, concerned that it contained a retroactive provision t hat could reopen thousands of divorce cases and upend m any familiesfinancial stability. Good point.

Opinions expressed in letters or columns are solely the opinion of that author and not necessarily the opinion of the staff or editors of the NewsSun In the early 1900s Anna J arvis accomplished something that, today, might be considered quite a feat. She brought both sides of the Congressional aisle together with the signing of a jointr esolution. It began when she promised to do whatever she could to establish a speciald ay honoring mothers. To that end, she and others who felt the same began a letter-writing campaign a imed at anyone in a position to help. Hundreds of letters went out and she spoke from any platform that was available. B y 1909 those efforts p aid off and 45 states were o bserving a special day honoring mothers with public tributes. Included in that, a tradition of wearing carnations began white to h onor a deceased mother a nd red to honor a living one. Eventually her efforts reached high political places. President Woodrow Wilson joined in with his request asking Americans to give a thank you to all mothers. And our political leaders signed that joint resolution recommending that Congress and the executive departments of the government observe Mothers Day. And so it was that 99 years ago, the first American Mothers Day was celebrated. Its a pretty safe bet this celebration has changed a lot over the decades. I dont suppose there are many surrey-with-the-fringe-on-top rides these days or fried chicken picnics with linen tablecloths spread across fresh spring grass. And since its also a safe bet I wont be here 99 years from now, I thought, for posterity, Id share some of the smiles my friends have enjoyed on their recent Mothers Days. Marsha has an 8and a 10-year-old. They decided to make breakfast in bed for her last year. So what if the toast was charbroiled and the eggs rubbery? She even endured the dark liquid in the theme park mug, which was made with hot tap water because her kids know of no greater wrath than hers if they dare to touch the stove. And the finishing touch? All was served on a tray boasting a bud vase filled with dollar weed straight from their front lawn. But true to motherhood, Marsha ooh-ed and ahh-ed over every munchy morsel and unsavory sip. Saris daughter took advantage of her home economics class by sewing a blouse for her mom and earning academic credit at the same time. Granted, the blouse had double the amount of buttons needed, meaning Sari had to allow an extra 10 minutes to get dressed. And truth be told, the overly bright zoo pattern didnt exactly blendw ith anything in Saris clo se t. But her oohs and aahs were just as sincere. All Wendy wanted was a q uiet day with no household chores. Her daughter knows her well so wash appy to accommodate. She decided last Mothers Day w as the perfect time to do a load of laundry on her own for the first time. Whens he announced with a Cheshire grin that shed just s tarted a load of dark clothes in hot water, her close-to-manic mother bounced out of bed and down the stairs, trippedo ver the dog, pounded the stop knob on the machine, w rung out each piece of clothing, then reset the machine for a cold cyclea nd started it all over. Not one word of criticism left h er lips during the interruption as she hustled right back upstairs and slid under t he still-warm covers. My friend Janice said her son surprised her by detailing her car one Mothers Day afternoon. Now thatsm y kind of gift. And what a perfect gift it was since he borrowed said car that morning, returning hours later from the beach. Hmm,s and-filled shoes? Wet towels? Well, you get the pict ure. On to quiet, easy-going C aren. Afamily bike ride followed by a swim would be perfect, thank you very much, she said. And later, some wings on the grill.J ust a quiet day with her husband and son, who even gave up watching his favorite baseball team on TV. Well, OK, when hes nuck inside to catch an inning or two Caren looked the other way, sighing and smiling as moms often do. Now, it isnt difficult to see that caring came through in the coffee and consideration in the car wash. Love left its mark in the laundry while appreciation anchored itself in the almost-abandoned baseball game. As moms we plant those seeds, along with kindness, fairness, patience and more. We nurture them with a hope theyll take firm and permanent root in our offspring. So how better to spend Mothers Day and every day than to watch these traits flourish in our children? What is it moms want on Mothers Day and every day? Its to see their children do their best so they can be their best. Thats what Mothers really want. Millie Richmond is a Sebring resident.

Of thef ive officers killed in Florida in 2012, two died in motorcycle accidents, two died by gunfire and one was stabbed to death. O range County Deputy Sheriff First Class Nick Sottile Jr. spoke at the ceremony. Sottiles father, Sgt. Nicholas Sottile of theF lorida Highway Patrol, was shot to death during a traffic stop on U.S. 27 northo f Lake Placid in January 2007. He was 48 years old. Sottile Jr. spoke from the h eart, putting a human face to cold statistics. He was a t rooper like his father and on duty that day. It was his mother who told him thet errible news over the phone. H e said, ... when my dad died, it wasnt just my dad who was gone. Awife lost her husband. Afather lost a son. Siblings lostt heir brother. Coworkers lost a mentor. Friends lost t heir friend. Acommunity lost a protector ... I could talk to you about how it feltt o have the most influential person in my life ripped a way from me in an instant, about how overwhelming the idea of healing seemed t o be at the time, and how friends, family, the community, and even strangers helped me through to the other side. Or, about how Ib egan questioning the very core of my being; my principles, my relationships and my faith. Its interesting how simple and clear-cut the idea of forgivenesss eemed to be before Dad was killed. Now, this seemingly simple idea of forgiveness is probably the longest and hardest struggleI ve found myself battling, Sottile told the rapt audience. He added, however, I want to focus on somethingt hat while in the pits of despair and struggle seems so elusive, and that is hope. .. Hope can easily get overshadowed and lost in the shuffle. Through reflectiona nd prayer Ive tried conditioning myself to celebrate t he future that my relationship with Dad has allowed me ...

C M Y K across central Florida within a matter of weeks, leaving a path of devastation and reminding area citizensw hat it takes to be prepared. At the 27th Annual Governor's Hurricane Conference being held this week in Fort Lauderdale,G ov. Rick Scott told an audience that federal sequestration could hurt Floridas ability to recover in the aftermath of a hurri-c ane as there would be less money available to prepare the National Guard. S cott said he mix of new residents within Floridas 19 million residents coupledw ith the forecast of a busy hurricane season could m ake 2013 a nightmare for emergency managers and first responders. N ext year will mark a decade since the trifecta of s torms raked Highlands County and there is a fear that many do not remember the long lines waiting for water or other recovery sup-p lies. The memory of astronomi cal prices for generators and other equipment to mitigate the impact of weeksw ithout electrical service also may have faded. I n his address, Director of the National Hurricane Center Rick Knabb echoed t hose sentiments, saying that in addition to the 250,000 new residents who moved to the Sunshine State last year, many people whoh ave lived in Florida for decades might not be as prepared as they should be. They dont even know basic information, like whethert hey live in an evacuation zone. H ighlands is not in an evacuation zone, but gener-a lly plays the role of a host county. That means in the event of a tropical cyclone, residents from coastal areasw ill (and have adding to the burden on a vailable supplies as well as safety services. But experience has shown t hat in the aftermath of a big storm residents cannot wait o n the slow and sometimes inadequate response from state and federal officials. They need to be able to survive on their own. Thism eans having personal stockpiles of food, water a nd other good to provide for immediate family. The general suggestion h as been a preparedness level of at least 72 hours, but 2004 showed the time frame could be much longer. A dditionally, basic services such as electricity, gas, w ater, sewage treatment and telephones may be cut off for days or even weeks.S upply kits should contain items to help residents mana ge during these outages. To some people, being prepared for two weeks of no electricity, limited phone service, cooking on the fam-i ly grill and generally camping out at the house might s ound very unlikely.

Although the Avon Park M ower-Plex on the western end of the Avon Park M unicipal Airport has become a Mecca for lawn mower racers from across F lorida, the Shiners have developed a 550-foot racing oval at the back of their property behind the big yellow meeting hall. A s always, there will be the Shriners flea market all morning long, but officials of the FLAwill open the gates at the Shrine track at 11:30a .m. so competitors can come in, register, set up their padd ock areas and perhaps take some test and tune laps. T he racing will commence at 1:30 Saturday afternoon with four classes to run exhib ition contests. ell have four classes on d isplay there will be the open twin, open single, IMOWand GPdivisions, said FLAPresident Wes Pyburn. F ollowing the races, plans are to open the pits so people c an see the racers, meet the drivers and learn about lawn mower racing. Theyll be able to come in and look at the mowers, sit o n them and get their questions answered, Pyburn said. H e estimated that would start no later than 3:30 Saturday afternoon. Because it is the end of the season, Pyburn said therew ould be a number of mowers for sale in the event there happened to be some budding racers who wanted a machine that already had been pre-p ared to FLAspecifications. For serious buyers, Pyburn s aid there could be an opportunity arranged for short, on-t rack test drives after the racing has concluded. Shriners will be charging a $ 5 admission fee for Saturdays exhibition races, w ith the FLAcharging $10 for pit admission. However, after the race card is completed, the pits will be opened at no addi-t ional charge. That will be our open h ouse,so to speak, Pyburn said. The Florida Lawnracing A ssociation was established in 2002 by a group of local m en and women who wanted to create a for-purpose lawn mower racing facility in H ighlands County. Alease was drafted with the city of Avon Park and the group set out to develop what proved to be the first dedicat-e d lawn mower racing complex in the United States. The last official points race for the season will be June 1 at the Mower-Plex in AvonP ark. They then will take a summ er hiatus and hold the first race of the new season on thef irst Saturday of this coming September.

They sign on to become firemen and work for 10b ucks an hour because they have a pension plan waiting for them at the end, Jim Lobozzo, business owner in the city of Sebring and fathert o firefighter Dan Lobozzo, said. What youre doing is removing a portion of that compensation package without increasing the other endo f it, Lobozzo said. Negotiations usually i nvolve give and take. There doesnt seem to be any give in these negotiations. All Is ee is that these benefits were available to these employees a nd now they are not going to be available to these employees. Lobozzo said the city should adjust the compensa-t ion plan to balance the loss of the pension in order to attract quality firefighters. oure going to have guys who have one eye on doing their job and one eye on theiri Pad or their iPhone looking to see what else is available out there. Youre going to get what you pay for, Lobozzo said. Fiscal conservatism isg reat, except when it adversely affects you. Lobozzo suggested leaving current employees under the pension plan, regardless ift hey are vested or not, and moving new hires to the new 401(a Hensley who doesnt have a vote has served on the fire pension board form any years and was more vocal than usual during T uesdays meeting. He agreed with Lobozzo and said he wasnt aware of anyo ther municipalities removing employees who are a lready in the pension system. Theres numbers and then theres, for me personally, the right thing to do. I dontt hink that it is fair. I dont think that the city of Sebring, the taxpayers, would think that it is the right thing to do, Hensley said. Council member John Clark strongly disagreed. It is not fair to shoulder the taxpayers with an unlimi ted potential liability, and thats what a defined benefit plan is. Its a liability untilt he last person drawing out of that plan expires. We all live i n the same world, we all take the same risks and thats what it is, passing risks back and forth. Ive just had enough; its a big fib and itst ime we all, at least here in this little tiny community, recognize it and we want to have a plan where there is money there, Clark said. Clark reminded everyone of what had taken place twoy ears ago at the start of the negotiations. A t the start of the city and fire negotiations in fall 2011, city management offered thef ire department, as well as the police department, the p roposal of allowing all current members of the department, vested and non-vested, to retain their pension plans. All new hires and incomi ng employees would have been given the defined contribution plan. The Sebring Police D epartment accepted the new contract deal with no objection two years ago. Fire union members refused the proposal, which the City thent ook completely off the table and the union opted to continue negotiations, which led to an impasse hearing and finally to Tuesdays decision. Reality is every single firefighter is going to draw Social Security benefits, too. Everybody keeps glossing over this stuff. I understandt he mayors sentiments. Unfortunately for whatever reason, the union populationr ejected the deal that I believe in hindsight was a terrible mistake on theirp art, Clark said. They rolled the dice and they lost. T hats what happens in negotiations. The citys decision for the other bone of contention in the negotiations the promotion process was top rovide greater flexibility and give the fire chief more discretion and flexibility. Items such as education, experience as a firefighter, e xperience with the city of Sebring, supervisory experience, work performance and d isciplinary background are all points that will now be used, along with test results, to determine which firefighters would be promoted. Edmonds and the fire union members felt that then ew proposed changes do not specify well enough what educational courses and certifications would be needed for promotion and that leaving the final say of hiring and promotional process solely to Chief Brad Batz was unfair. eve got no problem with flexibility, but we want some type of accountability o utside the chief, Edmonds said. The council members disagreed with Edmonds and stated that Batz should have t he final say on the employe es that he feels are best qualified for the supervisor positions in the fire department.

It was harder than it looked, although the first s tudent, Kenneth Palmerton, made it look easy. Trevor Taveniere talked his way through his turn. Way to go, he said when he made a good move. Come back, he cried whenever he dropped a piece. It was awesome, he said afterh e was done. I felt like I was a robot. Abraham Carrasquillo, the registered nurse who oversees the surgical staff during a procedure, told the News-Sun children today are uniquely able to handle advanced robots because of their experi-e nce with video games. Its actually easier for them, Carrasquillo said. D r. Thomas Lackey, a surgeon who uses the r obot and did a demonstration, agreed. The key to learn how to operate a robot, he said, is to play a lot of video games. The robot, of course, is no toy. It cost $1.2 mill ion, and that did not include operating instrum ents, which typically cost $2,500 apiece. But its advantages are many, said Mary Fergusen, director of surgery services. The arms and attached instruments can work in very small places with 360 degrees of rotation. Incisions ares mall, there is less bleeding, and the healing time is much shorter. The robot is ideal for procedures like gall bladder removal and hernia or colon repair. The long-term goal is to create a system that w ill allow doctors in one place to operate on p atients somewhere else.

A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Dep artments action is based must contain the following inf ormation: a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known; b) The name, address, and telephone number of the p etitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the a ddress for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's subs tantial interests will be affected by the agency determination; c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision; d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action; f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency's proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Departments action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice.

C M Y K I saw some postings Wednesday night that the Miami Heat beating the living crap out of the Chicago Bulls was, the best game I ever saw. from a handful of people. Really? A115-78 win, from the presumptive title favorites over a team that is short-handed was the best game they ever saw? Forgive me, but if that is truly the case, if this was, in fact, the best game these people ever saw, then I feel sorry for them. It brings you more pride to whip a hurt dog than to defend yourself and barely escape from the fangs of a fully strong wolf? Youd rather have all the advantages and bear witness to a full-on beat down than to get involved in a close, hard-fought game that your team scratches out at the end? Some might see this as a lifelong Bulls fan bitter at the resounding defeat, but its not. Honestly, as they are currently constituted, I agree with many others that this team has no shot to take this series. Im a fan, but also a realist when it comes to my teams I am also a Cub fan, after all. But maybe its just me, or my generation. I appreciate the full-on, evenly-matched brawl that takes us to the very end. And yes, there were times that, having been whooped by the Lakers, Pistons and Celtics numerous times in the late 80s, early 90s, that I adored watching the Bulls then stomp them decisively. But the point of it was, those teams from Boston, Los Angeles and Detroit were worthy foes, at the top of their games, which is what made the victories that much sweeter. Of course I wanted my Bulls to beat those aforementioned teams, and beat them decisively. But had the Pistons been missing Isiah Thomas, Sidney Green and Bill Laimbeer during such a win it would have felt much less gratifying. Had the Celtics been without Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Dennis Johnson, same feeling. Had the Lakers been without Magic Johnson, Byron Scott and Michael Cooper, again, same deal. Such games would certainly never be on my list of best Ive ever seen. If youre a true fan, a true competitor, you dont revel in your team beating the living crap out of a weak team. You may like that it helped your team in the series, but you likely would have turned it off at some point, given that it was so non-competitive. I read a Heat fan the other night whine that, Im so sick of Bulls fans bragging about beating us without three of their best players. This was within an hour of the game having ended, when Chicago somehow had outlasted Miami. By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentAvon Park High School graduate Greg Gentry has always been known for hist alent on the golf course. Recently, NAIAstandings r eflected his efforts, as his 74.44 average put him as the 6 7th high individual in the nation. When I broke top 100 I was happy, shared Gentry. I kept looking until they updated, then I was even more happy when I broke top 75. In addition to his national standing, Gentry is currently ranked 11th in the Sun Coast Conference and plays as the number one seed for Webber International Universitys team. My season went well. I practiced harder this year, which showed as I had some low rounds and a few good finishes. Gentry had three, thirdplace finishes for the season as well as two fifth-place finishes, one of which was during the Sun Coast Conference tournament. He also added an 8th place finish under his belt in one of the conference majors. These successes do not come as a total shock, however. Countless Sertoma Junior Tour championships went to Gentry during his career and he saw similar success in his Red Devil years as well, including a trip to the state finals. Gentry added that the transition to college-level competition came pretty smoothly for him. The hardest thing, I would have to say, is walking 36 holes the first day [ofa tournament] and 18 the second. He clarified that in high school students walk 9 holes for regular meets and 18 for tournaments. I remember my first time walking 36 was miserable, now it feels like a walk in the park. As he has adjusted to life as a Webber Warrior, Gentry has seen improvements in his game. My irons were the key to me playing better, he explained. I was missing less and less greens and giving myself more birdie opportunities. Gentry is a player who places high importance on As we get older, birthdays seem to come and go and unlike in our youth, the celebration, as well as the gifts, are often the same year after year. Multi-colored ties, c ologne, t-shirts with funny artwork and even funnier sayings, and of course your favorite home cooked meal or dinner in a restaurant, followed by the traditional birthday cake and candles to celebrate the event. But sometimes, a birthday can be special and the gift b ecomes a memory that youll have forever. Such was the case this weekend when I had the opportunity to take two trips out of Lake Istokpoga, with two different fathers and sons to celebrate their sons b irthdays. Saturday, I picked up Cliff Ables, an attorney in Sebring and his son Jason, for a day of fishing on Lake Istokpoga. Jason owns a construction company in Ft. Lauderdale and the original plan was to i nclude his 10-year old son and to do some good old, down-to-earth shiner fishing. But the day before our scheduled trip, Cliff let me know the grandson would not be coming along, and that he and his son Jason wanted to learn how to flip a nd pitch. We launched from the Windy Point boat ramp in Lake Placid, and by 7:30am., I gave a brief demonstration on the art of flippin. Both Cliff and Jason are e xperienced bass fishermen s o the course was pretty quick as we approached our first target, a small area on the southwest corner of the lake with scattered reeds and other vegetation, both men were flipping like theyd been doing it for years. Jason connected quickly with a feisty 2 pounder, followed by a beautiful 5 1/2 to 6 pounder which he expertly led to the landing net. Jason had caught many bass in the past but this was a new big-fish record for him and after snapping a few pictures, he gently released the bass back into the water. Continuing through the area, as the wind picked up, we caught and released a couple more bass, most in the 1-3 pound class. Running over to the south end of Bumblebee Island, we fished a lone reed patch and Jason hooked up again with a big bass. Unlike the first big fish he landed quickly, this bass decided to run back into the reeds and proved to be a bit of a challenge working her back out. But Jason kept tension o n the line and we soon netted a solid 7 pounder, re-setting his big fish mark. The 7 pounder was the only fish taken off this reed island so we headed into some new territory looking for an even bigger bass. By 11 a.m. the winds were getting stronger and it was getting tougher to find areas not impacted by the fierce north wind. Many of my usual spots were being pummeled by 3-4 foot waves so we finallyd ecided to work the east shoreline of the Big Island. We were still forced to fish faster than I like, but we d id manage to catch a few more. R ounding the trip out by f inishing up where we started, we called it a day around 1pm with a dozen bass ranging in size from a pound to better than 7 pounds. Jasons largest five fish would have put his 5-fish total at just under 20 pounds. Not bad for a guy whos never flipped before and a pretty nice birthday present as well! Thanks Dad! Sunday, Sam Wilkins drove down from Jacksonville with his son Colby. Sam and I had been out a couple of times already, most recently in early April when he caught a nice 7 1/2 pounder and lost one of the biggest bass Ive ever seen. Sam wanted to celebrate his sons birthday with a bass fishing trip that we hoped would surpass his last trip and put his son in a position to hook into a real wall-hanger. We met for dinner Saturday night, and as we previewed the weather channel, we could see we were in for some big winds early in the day Sunday. We decided to get out as early as we could, but at 6:45 a.m., Lake Istokpoga was already showing signs of rough water. Sam connected first with a nice 3 pounder, followed minutes later by Colby who landed his first largemouth bass, a beautiful 2 1/2 SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, May 10, 2013 Page B3 Fishin Around...

C M Y K pounder. We got a couple of pictures for posterity and beforeI could get the camera put away, Sam had tied into another nice bass. By now the wind was kicking up white caps and we had no choice but to finda calmer location. We moved around a couple of spots with no luck before venturing across the bottom half of the lake. With winds crashing out of the north, this proved to be a bad decision. Ranger bass boats are built to take rough water, and my Ranger is no exception, but the 3-5 foot waves that we were running parallel to were not only coming over the boat, but the wind was picking up water and spraying it over all of us. By the time we reached the eastern shore, we were soaked. The air temperature was cooler than normal and it took us a good half hour to dry out to make the trip back across the lake. I warned both Sam and Colby that it might be another wet trip, but as we donned our rainsuits, I knew if I ran at full throttle, we wouldnt get as wet, but it would be a rough ride. It was a pretty rough, but riding on top the waves kept us dryer and we finally got back to the boat ramp and loaded up the boat. I had suggested that we try one of the smaller lakes, since they wouldnt be as impacted by the wind. Lake Glenada, just off Rte. 27 in Sebring seemed like a good choice, particularly if we wanted to flip. Pulling into the ramp area at Lake Glenada, I was surprised to see that the ramp was closed. Obviously we wouldnt be fishing there, so we drove over to another of my favorite lakes, Lake Lotela. Ive always enjoyed fishing Lake Lotela, and Ive caught some really big fish there on topwater lures and with a plastic worm, but the opportunity to flip just didnt exist. We caught another five or six bass, most of them small, although I did get a nice 3-4 pounder before we called it a day. Two trips, two birthdays, two father and son combos. What a great way to say Happy Birthday and spend some quality time making memories with your son! Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder. He lives in the Golf Hammock area of Sebring with his wife Lexie, and is the owner of a custom rod building company appropriately named The American Fisherman. He can be reached at 863-273-4998 or 216-339-6571 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. His website address is theamericanfisherman.com. determination and working hard to improve his game. Im currently working hard on 100 yards and in. I just havent been able to execute lately from those yardages and those are usually the easy birdies for me. For next year, I plan on working hard all summer playing a few amateur events and winning some tournaments my upcoming year at Webber. Hopefully, I will bring my national rank down in the top 25. Throughout his 15-year career on the links, Gentry has had the constant support of his parents and he credits them for his accomplishments. My mom has taught me from the very beginning, he explained. Gentry also looks inward for the dedication he has to the sport and to improving himself now in his college years. I just want to do it on my own, similar to Bubba Watson he never had a lesson in his life, he said. I like to be independent and not ask anyone for help unless I feel I need it. O utside of his time on the course, Gentry also works hard on his studies as a Sports Business Management Major at Webber. He left some wise words for younger aspiring golfers. Golf is so much harder than any other sport; rarely are you just naturally good at it, he said. You do not get good quick with golf it takes time, dedication, and hard work. Gentry also advised that golfers be true to themselves and the scorecard as they improve their game. Reflecting back on the time Gentry discovered he had made the top 75, he stated, I just thought to myself, I cant wait until next year; I think it is my year Certainly, we can expect to see him continue to prosper and hopefully reach that goal as he continues to advance his game.

But when that team, with a week of rest, takes on an injury-laden team in the second round, and gets beat? Well, it happens, and rather than worry about bragging from the other teamsfans, you should be worried, ticked off at your own team. So many times, when the Pistons were clotheslining Jordan, bullying Scottie Pippen, sure I was ticked, hated the Pistons for it. But at the same time was yelling at the TV, Suck it up! Beat them anyway! Apparently these Heat fans, or is it current day fans on the whole, who dont get that bravado? You beat us? Dangit. You beat us with a team worn down and riddled with injuries? Jeez, what is wrong with us?!? Then when your team regroups and does what it is expected to do, to beat down this injury-laden team on your home court, its the best game youve ever seen? Really? Doesnt seem real proud to me. Dan Hoehne is the Sports Editor of the News-Sun. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Continued from B1 Heat rout expected, not a great game longest streak in NFL history. Ateam captain for the past nine years, Barber made the transition from cornerback to safety in 2012, Tampa Bays first season under coach Greg Schiano. Schianos top priority this offseason was revamping a secondary that nearly set a league record for most yards passing allowed in a season. The Bucs began reshaping the defense with the signing of Goldson, an All-Pro safety last season in San Francisco, to a five-year, $41.25 million deal in free agency. Last month, the team traded the 13th overall pick in the draft to the New York Jets in exchange for Revis, a three-time All Pro cornerback who also got a new six-year, $96 million contract. W ith veteran Eric W right returning and last years No. 1 draft pick Mark Barron entering his second season at safety, that left little room for Barber in Tampa Bays plans especially after Banks was selected in the second round of the draft to compete with Wright fora starting job. Barber is the only player in NFLhistory with 40-plus interceptions and 25 or more sacks. He returned eight picks for regular-season touchdowns and clinched Tampa Bays victory over Philadelphia in the 2002 NFC championship game with a 92-yard return for a TD off Donovan McNabb.

My doctor diagnosed Achilles tendonitis andp rescribed medicine that did reduce pain and swelling. Im still worried Ill not be able to hike again. Whatn atural remedies keep this at bay? J.S. Boulder, Colo. A nswer: Ouch, Ive had tendonitis myself from over-typing and exercising so I hear ya. Thisc ondition is usually an overuse injury and causes pain or swelling i n the wrists, knee caps, elbows or Achilles tendons. Actually, it can occur in any tendon and there are hundreds. Unfortunately, tendons dont have a rich blood supply andt hat hinders adequate delivery of oxygen and nutrients. Simply put, t endons are slow to heal. The most important thing you can do to improve tendonitis pain is to rest the area; thats hard to do when its your foot. But tendons dont recover if you keep overusing them. The next consideration( and this one is also free) is to ice the area to reduce inflammation, but icing doesnt help much after the first few days. Supplements or medications d o help. Most of you will opt for medications like ibuprofen or naproxen (these are NSAIDs and are contraindicated in people withb leeding ulcers among other conditions). My personal favorite antii nflammatory supplements include astaxanthin, saffron, and curcumin because they have other tremen-d ous health benefits. Here are some more options that c an help: Boswellia: Astrong antiinflammatory compound that worksa s effectively as NSAIDs. Sometimes called Indian F rankincense, this herb can be combined with any of the three supplements I mentioned above. Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM MSM supports healthy c onnective tissues like tendons and ligaments. Its used for arthritis t oo. This one is a must for prevention. White willow (salix alba : This is also know to increase fertility; willow bark may ease achesa nd pains. Aspirin comes from white willow, and you can trust the h erb to reduce pain and inflammation, however it is a mild blood thinner. Ginger: Great for inflammation and pain, especially around the j oints. You can buy fresh root at any grocery store and grate into your meals, or make tea. Ginger increases blood circulation (be careful with other blood thinners). Ruta (ruta graveolens This homeopathic remedy is used for t endon pain, especially in the Achilles, feet, hips, wrists, and areas near other joints. Boiron makes this in pellet form. Arnica (arnica montana A lso a homeopathic, arnica has been used for centuries to treat g eneral pain. It can be taken orally or applied topically. The topical cream Traumeel by Heel contains arnica and several other healing compounds targeted specifically tor educe pain and inflammation from strains and sprains. Im never witho ut Traumeel! Tendonitis can sometimes be the result of arthritis, gout, Reiter syndrome or A nkylosing spondylitis, Lyme disease or other c onditions. Its harder to treat or may recur frequently, so see your doctor for a correct diagnosis and to ask if these supplements are right for you.

This information i s not intended to treat, diagnose or cure your condition. Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen If you are a power walker,h ave started a new exercise routine or are an e xperienced r unner, you may g et shin splints at one time or another. Shin splints or tibial stress syndrome refers to pain in the front or inner part of the lower leg. This isc ommon in running sports such as basketball, tennis, soccer, and gymnastics and can occur at all ages. Also at risk are jumpers, dancers,m ilitary personnel. Shin splints are the cause of 13-20 percent of all running injuries. Shin splints arent really a single medical ailment. They are actually a symptom of an underlying problem that may be caused by: Irritated and swollen muscles. Stress fractures, which are tiny, hairline breaks in the bones Over-pronation or flat feet Shin splint pain usually develops gradually without a history of trauma, and can begin as a dull ache along the front or inside of the shin (tibia even walking. You may notice small bumps and tenderness along shin bone. To prevent shin splints, you should: Regularly stretch and strengthen the leg muscles. Check if your running shoes are old or worn down and not properly absorbing shock. Avoid running on hard surfaces, be cautious with downhill running (your foot impacts the ground in a plantar-flexed position toes pointed down) putting stress on the muscles on the front of your shin. Wear insoles or orthotics that offers arch support for over-pronation. Dont violate the 10 percent rule (do not increase training routines by more than 10 percent a week) For immediate relief: Rest (avoid activities that cause pain; cross-train with low impact activities such as pool training, bicycling or elliptical machine training) Take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory such as Ibuprofen Compression (with an elastic wrap or wear a compression sleeve) Incorporate a stretching and strengthening program into your workout routine Use a foam roller to break up muscle adhesions and increase blood flow to your leg muscles. If pain persists, your podiatrist may order x-rays, a bone scan or an MRI to check for a stress fracture. Whether you are walking for fun or training for your first 5K, dont let shin splints sideline you.

The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN By CANDICE CHOI APFood Industry WriterNEWYORK CocaCola says it will work to make lower-calorie drinks and clear nutrition information more widely available around the world, intensify-i ng a push against critics who say its drinks pack on t he pounds. The Atlanta-based company, which makes Sprite, Fanta and Minute Maid, already offers diet drinks inm ost markets. But theyre not always as readily available in emerging markets such as China and India as they are in the U.S. W ith sugary drinks coming under fire for fueling obesity rates, Coca-Cola Co. has been more aggressive in trying to convince customers its products can be part of a healthy lifestyle. That campaign has included the company touting its wide range of lowercalorie offerings. But CocaCola has also stood by its full-calorie drinks, saying that physical activity plays an important role in fighti ng obesity. There is a place for all of our beverages in a healthy lifestyle, CEO Muhtar Kent said in a call with reporters Wednesday. The announcement from C oca-Cola comes as packaged food companies across t he industry look for growth in developing markets, where middle-class populations are growing rapidly. As more people head toc ities and earn more money, theyre more prone to eating convenient packaged foods that critics say lead to obesity. T he shifting populations in such countries represent an enormous opportunity for U.S. companies. For example, Coca-Cola has noted that Americans on average drink 403 servings of its various beverages a year. That compares with just 12 servings per year in India and 38 in China. And the companys diet options arent nearly as popular in such countries. Coca-Cola takes anti-obesity campaign global
C M Y K Associated PressA new genetic test to gauge the aggressiveness of prostate cancer may help tens of thousands of men each year decide whether theyn eed to treat their cancer right away or can safely monitor it. The new test, which goes on sale Wednesday, joins another one that recently came on the market. Botha nalyze multiple genes in a biopsy sample and give a s core for aggressiveness, similar to tests used now for c ertain breast and colon cancers. Doctors say tests like these have the potential to curb a major problem in cancer care overtreatment. Prostate tumors usually grow so slowly they will never threaten a mans life, but some prove f atal and there is no reliable way now to tell which ones will. Treatment with surgery, radiation or hormone block-e rs isnt needed in most cases and can cause impotence or incontinence, yet most men are afraid to skip it. Were not giving patients enough information to make their decision, said Dr. Peter Carroll, chairman of urology at the University ofC alifornia, San Francisco. ou can shop for a toaster better than for prostate treatment, he said. A study he led of the newest test the Oncotype DX Genomic Prostate Score is set for discussion Wednesday at an AmericanU rological Association meeting in San Diego. The results suggest the test could triple the number of m en thought to be at such low risk for aggressive disease that monitoring is a clearly safe option. Conversely, the test also sug-g ested some tumors were more aggressive than doctors had believed.

This is a very exciting r ecognition for the Somers Hospice House, said Don Evans, Good Shepherd Hospice executive director. The Hospice Honors a ward is a result of exceptional family satisfaction survey scores and helpsd emonstrate that seriously ill patients and their loved ones value the care provided att he Somers Hospice House. Established by Deyta, this p restigious annual honor recognizes the top 100 agencies that continuously provide theh ighest level of satisfaction through their care as measu red from the caregivers points of view. Deyta used the Family Evaluation of Hospice Care (FEHC vey results from more than1 ,200 partnering hospice agencies contained in its n ational FEHC database, with an evaluation period of January through December2 012. Deyta used the five key d rivers of caregiver satisfaction as the basis of the H ospice Honors calculations, which included: Overall care patient r eceived while under care of hospice Family was kept informed of patients condition Would you recommend this hospice to others Hospice team response to needs in the evenings and w eekends Patients personal needs were taken care of L iz Silva, director of Hospice at Deyta, says that H ospice Honors define a new standard of excellence i n the patient/family experience for hospice agencies. Identifying these top per-f orming hospices is our way of recognizing organizations t hat have demonstrated high quality of care to both patients and caregivers, she said. That positive family e xperience is a key driver of ongoing patient-focused care a nd overall agency success. According to Evans, Good Shepherd Hospices cored higher than the national averages in all five k ey drivers, and the Somers Hospice House exceeded the n ational averages and leader benchmarks in the overall care, recommendation andp atients personal needs categories. We know that Good Shepherd Hospice delivers exceptional care at the Somers Hospice House, he added. T his survey compared our end-of-life care against hosp ices across the nation, and we came out on top. Good Shepherd Hospice o pened the Somers Hospice House at 1110 Hammock Rd. i n early 2011. The freestanding, 16-bed a cute-care facility is a healthcare option for hospice patients that are experienc-i ng pain and symptom management issues. W hile Good Shepherd Hospice staff members address medical issues at the hospice house, patients can find relief, avoid unwantedh ospitalizations and return to their homes as soon as possib le. The Somers Hospice House features privatep atient rooms and lanais, a c omfortable family room, a dining area, a chapel and a childrens play area.

The Somers Hospice House is named in memory of Highlands County residents Bud and DonnaS omers, who were strong supporters of Good Shepherd Hospice. B ecky McIntyre, Good Shepherd Hospice chief clinical officer, is based inS ebring and oversees the operation at the facility. Families continually tell us that they are pleased with the support they and theirl oved ones receive at the Somers Hospice House, she s aid.

STR8 UPwas honored to h ave Pastor Jack Canady preside over the ceremony. Canady and STR8 UPpresi-d ent Sammy Telesco joined hands as the kids were lowered into the water andb rought back up, symbolizing Christs death, burial and r esurrection. During a recent trip to see The Story of Jesus, severaly outh expressed their desire to be baptized. We made a decision to hold classes on what baptism means; we didnt want them to do it out of raw emotion, Telesco said. S everal local pastors came to educate the kids on bapt ism, after which all of the teens still wanted to follow through. We wanted to make it special for them and invite a ll of the families involved. The kids who were baptized received a Bible and a f ramed certificate, vicepresident Dana Telesco said. When Tamaya Hawthorne was asked why baptism was important to her, she replied, I was leading by example for my brothers and sisters. Jared Browning said, Being baptized made me feel new, not outwardly, but spiritually. I wanted to show m y family and friends what it means to accept and obey Jesus Christ. There are no words to explain what it meant to me. A lexis Battles-Fryback said, It meant showing everyone that I accepted J esus Christ and want to follow Him. It only took a few seconds, but felt like a lifetime. I felt like it was Jesus arms putting me under and If elt new when I came up.

A Mississippi high schoolf orced students to attend oncampus programs where fellow students urged them to turn to Jesus for hope and eternal life, according to an atheist group that has sued. The district has denied that assemblies were mandatory and says they were legal. Alawsuit filed by the American Humanist Association asks a federal judge to bar the Rankin County School District from having religious assemblies. The suit also seeks to hold Northwest Rankin High School Principal Charles Frazier personally liable. Humanist Association attorney Bill Burgess said Frazier should have known better than to allow the gathering. The district has yet to respond to the lawsuit filed April 24 in U.S. District Court in Jackson, and administrators could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Its the latest in a series of school prayer struggles in Mississippi. But while many of the cases have occurred in small towns, this one centers on a 1,600-student school in fast-growing suburban area that includes visible religious minorities including a Hindu temple.

C M Y K A ssociated PressNASHVILLE, Tenn. L ady Antebellums last album Own the Night opened on top of the charts, spawned two No. 1 hits and has sold more than 1.8 million copies. B y any measure the Grammy-winning trios follow-up to its life-changing hit Need You Now was a success except one: How thet rio feels about it looking back. The difference between that record and Lady As newr elease, Golden, is profound and reflects a new selfawareness for Hillary Scott,D ave Haywood and Charles Kelley. Were happier with this record, Kelley said. I think were a lot more proud of it.W e had more time. We had an album to separate us from ... The craziness, Scott said. ... the craziness and pressure that Need You Now kind of put on us going into that third record. It was therea nd now we feel just a little more confident about where w e are. Enter Golden, a laidback album that feels like a ride ina convertible on a sunny day. If Own the Night was Lady A trying to recapture the magic of Need You Now the song that spurred worldw ide fame and five Grammy Awards Golden is the band purposefully not. Gone are the strings and the heavy arrangements. Theyrer eplaced with simple songs built around the acoustic guitar, a forward-leaning groove and a s singer-songwriter feel. If you look at that Grammy night, if you look at t he timeline, how did we get there? Haywood asked. We just got there because wel oved writing songs and we loved putting them down. I k now that sounds so simple. And yet its not. Sitting comfortably on a couch in aN ashville radio studio, the trio engaged in a bit of selfa nalysis. They said there was no group meeting about changing the approach, but it was in everyones minds from the start When they sat down to write the title track with Eric P aslay, Kelley said it felt like those early days again when things werent quite so pres-s ure-packed. Haywood said they tried to r ecapture that feeling in the studio. e would go in and try to g et it in two takes and just go on because I think a lot of t imes you can overproduce and overdo this and try to add all these things and overdubs, Haywood said. And we really wanted to just pickt he best songs and if its a great song its going to sound g ood when you play it.

C M Y K www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, May 10, 2013Page B11 Diversions/Puzzles S olution, B10 By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticIf any piece of classic A merican literature should be depicted on film with wildly d ecadent and boldly inventive style, its The Great Gatsby. After all, who wast he character of Jay Gatsby himself if not a spinner of g randiose tales and a peddler of lavish dreams? And Baz Luhrmann would s eem like the ideal director to bring F. Scott Fitzgeralds story to the screen yet again, to breathe new life into these revered words, having shakenu p cultural institutions previously with films like illiam Shakespeares Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge! This is the man whod ared to stage the iconic balcony scene in a swimming p ool, so mixing in a little Jay-Z amid the Jazz Ages tandards strangely makes sense. But in Luhrmanns previous films, there still existed a fundamental understanding oft he point of the stories he was telling; beneath their gorgeous trappings, they still reflected the heart and the purpose of the works fromw hich they were drawn. His Great Gatsby is all about the glitter but it has no soul and the fact that hes directed it in 3-D only magnifies the feeling of artificiality. His camera rushes and swoops and twirls through one elaborately staged bacchanal after another but instead of creating a feeling of vibrancy, the result is repetitive and ultimately numbing. Rather than creating a sense of immersion and tangibility, the 3-D holds you at arms length, rendering the expensive, obsessive details as shiny and hollow when they should have been exquisite. (We should point out that the clothes, especially the dresses Carey Mulligan wears as the elusive, ethereal golden girl Daisy Buchanan, are magnificent, though the work of Luhrmanns wife and frequent collaborator Catherine Martin, who serves as both production and costume designer. Watching The Great Gatsby, the film, makes you wonder whether all of this might have functioned more effectively as The Great Gatsby, the Vogue magazine spread.) Luhrmanns adaptation, which he co-wrote with Craig Pearce, lacks the sense of melancholy and longing that emanated from the novels pages, even though the script invokes Fitzgeralds prose early and often through voiceover from Tobey Maguire as our narrator, guide and Fitzgerald stand-in Nick Carraway. Sometimes, as in the books famous, final sentence, the words pop right up on screen and linger in the air. But theres something about hearing and seeing them in this fashion that depletes them of the power they provide when we experi-e nce them on the written page. Its a reminder that one o f the most celebrated novels of our time, at its core, is a melodramatic tale of love andl oss, jealousy and betrayal. Gatsby himself, played w ith well-coifed panache by Leonardo DiCaprio, too often comes off as a needy, clingy s talker rather than a tragic figure and a victim of the American dream. But in general, though, Luhrmanns Gatsby doesnt get the factt hat the book was intended as a critical look at a crumbling dream. It gets too caught up in the buzz of the party. The plot, real quickly, in c ase its been a while since 10th-grade English class: The y ear is 1922, and young Nick Carraway has moved into ac ottage on the nouveau riche Long Island enclave of West Egg with dreams of making it big on the New York Stock Exchange. Across the bay ist he old-moneyed community of East Egg, where Nicks cousin, the dazzling socialite Daisy, lives with her cheating, blue-blooded husband,T om (Joel Edgerton But everyone, regardless of where theyre from, gathers each weekend for wild parties at Gatsbys palatial abode which happens to be next door to Nicks humble house. The normally mysterious Gatsby befriends Nick with hopes of reconnecting with Daisy, the one who got away five years earlier. Mulligans Daisy is more of an idea thana fully fleshed-out person, but then again, maybe thats always been the point: that shes alluring but tantalizingly out of reach. DiCaprio, meanwhile despite the usual depth and edge he can bring to a role comes off here as a parody ofa Fitzgerald character, tossing around Gatsbys jovial greeting of old sport so often in his affected accent, it could make for a dangerous drinking game. Now that would truly be intoxicating. Movie Review The Great Gatsby Rating: PG-13 (some violent images, sexual content, smoking, partying and brief language) Running time: 141 minutes Review: (of 4 At The Movies: The Great Gatsby Courtesy of Warner Bros.

Pictures release. Tobey McGuire (belowraway. All sparkle, no soul DearAbby: I am a l ongtime reader but a firsttime writer. My problem has been bothering me fors ome time now. We have a grandson who is 4 and very much a princess boy. He likes girl toys and dresses and d oesnt like any of his boy toys. Were at a loss about how to handle this. H s an adorable little boy and we love him to p ieces. His parents dont accept this behavior, and Im afraid it will affect him now and in the future. How would you handlet his? We dont say anything to his parents b ecause they are pretty much in denial. Worried Grandma D ear Worried: If he were my grandchild Id t alk with the parents. I, too, am concerned about how their attitude will a ffect the child in the future, because parents are supposed to love and accept children the way they are, and sexual orien-t ation is inborn. Children who feel consistent disapproval grow up thinking they arent good enough and dont measure up w hich can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. I would handle this by making sure my grandsonk new I loved, accepted and valued him just the way he is. If that means allowing him to play with the toyso f his choice in my home, thats what Id do. And if he showed more interest in art, music and dance and less interest ins ports, trucks, etc., I'd support that, too. Im glad you asked this question. Your grandson may or may not grow up to be gay or transgender, which is what I think your letter is really about. Regardless of what his orientation is, its very important that he knows he is valued for who he is. DearAbby: I know this boy that I really love. Hes nice, smart and funny and I think about him all the time. He says he loves me back. Is this true love, or just a mutual crush? I know Im only 13, but I think Im in love. Is it ridiculous to think I have found true love in seventh grade? How can I tell whether its love or not? And what would you consider the usual age to find your perfect other half? Confused in Love DearConfused: No one can predict how old you will be when you meet someone who is your perfect other half. Peoples interests and needs evolve as they grow older, and what seems perfect today can seem less so when viewed through the lens of life experience. I would never label your feelings as ridiculous, but when you are in love, there is usually no doubt about it. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.
