C M Y K he motto of B rewsters Coffee House in Sebring is May all who enter leave with ar efreshed heart. That rings true for anyone, whether you are looking fora warm cup of hot c hocolate on a cold winters night, a m id-morning pickme-up on anu neventful Wednesday or a good story while you sip your latte on a Sunday evening. Modest and always humble, owner Bruce Rogers has always shied away from the spotlight, only wishing to do his deeds behind the scene and, if he can h elp it, with little recognition. Even in a troubled economy, Rogers is always willing to offert he coffee shop for musical performances, political rallies and meet-and-greets, concerts, theater shows, artd isplays and a number of different Bible study g roups all without charging a fee.

By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Council members turned down a request from Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray to take over maintenance duties at the Lincoln Gardens Cemetery Monday night. Described as a low-income internment facility, the cemetery is run by a volunteer board, of which Gray is a member. She told council members that while most cemetery plots in Highlands County cost $1,000 or more just for the land, people may be buried at the 6.8-acre site at Cummings and Garrett roads for just $300. That money goes into a maintenance fund. Gray told the council that there is no official owner of the land and no property taxes are assessed against it. When asked about its status as a notfor-profit facility, Gray said seeking that designation was found to be cost prohibitive. Theres a whole lot of things that the Federal government requires especially for a cemetery and we dont meet all those criteria, she said. Gray said one legal counsel told the group it was better to leave it as is. AP council calls on private sector to help with cemetery maintenance By CAROLKLINE News-Sun CorrespondentSEBRING Its one of those horrifying moments when a family realizes their father is very near death. The call to 9-1-1. The family gathers; they pray, but fear strikes relentlessly. Such was the case in the Edwin Serrano family on March 11 when he suffered a massive heart attack at about 1 a.m. It came from nowhere. Serrano is 54, very healthy, does not drink nor smoke, runs three miles every day, and has coached, as well as refereed, soccer at the YMCAfor 16 years. Moreover, Serrano has served as referee for the Florida High School Athletic Association at various sports agendas throughout Highlands, DeSoto, Hardee, and Polk counties for 10 years.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING The Sebring Police Department celebrated its 100th birthday with an open house and reception for the people they serve Wednesday afternoon. In addition to welcoming residents, the departments officers and staff paid homage to fallen fellow officers and renewed their oaths of honor. Mayor George Hensley, Judge J. David Langford and St. Catherine Catholic Churchs Very Reverend Jose Gonzalez took part in the ceremony. Hensley was applauded when he said, We are very, very proud of our police department. e hear about crime, but we dont hear when police help people (in their day-today lives). Our police officers are courteous, very kind and have passion for their job. Thank you for all you do. Stay safe out there, he said to the officers. Langford issued the oath of honor. He also commended the officers. (I know these are not just words spoken. These are words taken to heart, he said. The officers pledged: On my honor, I will never betray my badge, my integrity, my character or the public trust. I will always have the courage to hold myself and others accountable for our actions. I will always uphold the Constitution, my community and the agency I serve. So help me God. SPD renews vows and thanks the people it serves 100 years of dedicated service TALLAHASSEE (AP Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who has made job creation his top priority since coming into office, has rejected a proposed deal to bring major Internet retailer Amazon to the state. After months of behindthe-scenes negotiations, Scott ultimately said no to a deal that would have led to the construction of at least one Amazon warehouse in the state and brought jobs along with it. Amazons arrival in the state, however, would have meant that Floridians would have to pay sales tax on Internet purchases made through the company. Amazon wanted to defer collecting the states 6 percent sales tax until next February or when its warehouse was open and occupied. The retailer has reached similar arrangements in several other states. But accepting the deal meant Scott could have been portrayed as being supportive of allowing taxes on Internet purchases. Scott, whose poll numbers remain low, has said in the past he could only support the taxation of Internet purchases if the money were offset by tax cuts elsewhere. Gov. Scott does not want to raise taxes in Florida, and we are confident Amazon will invest in our state because of our low-tax, pro-business jobs climate, Melissa Sellers, a spokeswoman for Scott, said in a statement on Thursday. Scott rejects Amazon deal

C M Y K If the officers in charge w ere deeply committed to protecting women serving their country, they wouldnt issue memos that, in effect, tell those women who haveb een violated to shut up and get over it. I f servicemen who rape their fellow soldiers had any reason to fear punishment,t hey wouldnt do it. But when women are muzzled, and the f ew convictions are overturned, then whats a guy got to worry about? A nd if Air Force Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinksi really believed that the rules applied t o him, he would not have allegedly grabbed a womans b reasts and rear end in an Arlington County, Va., parki ng lot. She was a complete stranger. He is the officer in c harge of the Air Forces sexual-assault prevention program. He was arrested. ... President Barack Obama sounded appropriately out-r aged at the news of Krusinskis arrest and the D efense Department report. Talk is cheap. He needs to push his military leaders toa ct. Women in the Senate already are taking the lead. S en. Claire McCaskill has put the brakes on the nomination of Lt. Gen. Susan Helmsf or vice commander of the Air Force Space Command. Sen. McCaskill first wants a c lear explanation as to why Lt. Gen. Helms last year o verturned a jury conviction in a sexual-assault case. Sens. K irsten Gillibrand, Patty Murray and Kelly Ayotte prop ose a special victims counsel. Gillibrand also proposes removing the investigation and prosecution of a sexuala ssault case from the victims chain of command, which c learly has led to an insular and secretive process that too often gives transgressors ap ass. That authority would rest instead with impartial m ilitary prosecutors. In addition, Gillibrands bill would eliminate the ability of a sen-i or officer to toss out a jurys guilty verdict. Defense Secretary Chuck H agel, however, is balking at what could be a major step f orward in giving victims justice and punishing the g uilty. Sexual assault is as much a c rime in the military as it is in civilian society. Hagel must set the tone for zero tol-e rance and swift consequences. Discipline and integrity must rule.

Instead, rapes and assaults have increased. Rules shouldnt have been changed midstreamEditor: The Sebring City C ouncil has done a terrible injustice to the employees and citizens by cutting benefits to the firefighters, and by changing the benefitsp ackage of those employees who are not yet vested. These employees were hired with specific benefits, in writing, and trustedt hat the contract given them would be honored. Now you've decided thaty ou didnt really mean what you said? When you, as a businessm an, hire any employee, do you change what you o ffered them upon employment after theyve worked for you, maybe for severaly ears? My guess is that you wouldnt consider doing t hat unless it meant adding something to the package. I do understand economics, so if changes need to be made, start with newh ires. Sage advice would be dont change the rules i n the middle of the game. One of the main arguments for this action wast hat other businesses do not offer similar benefits. O ther businesses cannot be compared to any public service position. M r. Businessman, how many times in your entire career have you risked your life for your customer? How often have you stoodo n the highway to aid a traffic accident victim or given CPR to a heart attack victim who might just happen to be a friend, and thent ried to sleep that night? Have you ever been atop a t anker filled with flammable materials, desperatelyh oping to put out the fire before it blows and takes the school next door with it? Have you ever tried to save a SIDS baby or searchf or a frightened child in a burning building? My guess is that the most chilling experience youve ever had is calminga disgruntled employee or patron ... not a life-changing moment in all of your years. The job that a firefighter does is extremely physical. Staying at that job past 50 years of age is very risky. Cutting benefits means that these employees have to retain their employment beyond safe limits. Our firefighters, police officers and paramedics face potentially life-threatening situations every time the uniform is donned. To compare what they do to a business is ridiculous, and shows that you truly do not care about the people that you employ.

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 News-Sun EDITORIALPAGEPOLICY S cott Pelley of CBS News raised e yebrows and passions among journalists at a Quinnipiac University luncheon the other day whenh e said, Our house is on fire. He was talking about challenges to the news business from withi n, as reporters become careless in a rush to be first; and, from outside, where social media supply what he labeled more bad information than at any time in history. Pelley is a worthy recipient of the Fred Friendly First Amendment Award that provided the occasion for his remarks. But in assembling the facts he was unfair to his profession, while overlooking the real issues igniting fires that threaten journalism today. Referring to the Newtown school shooting and Boston Marathon bombing, Pelley said, Were getting big stories wrong, over and over again. Putting social media aside, thats a gross exaggeration. Errors are regrettable but nothing new when journalists operate under pressure, nor are they directly linked to social media, which Pelley went on to lambaste. We were attacked by terrorists, he said, and amateur journalists became amateur vigilantes. Those gossiping via Twitter and Facebook are not journalists. If news professionals were to put stock in such chatter without verification they would be wrong, but there is little evidence of that really happening. The wild frontier of social media shouldnt be conflated with the established world of journalism. Pelleys other main point was that journalists place too much importance on being first with a story, rather than having the patience to make certain its right. That, too, is valid but getting a scoop has driven journalists since the profession began. And, to some extent, it actually does matter. Viewers changing channels during high-drama events do get a sense of which network is ahead on a story and which is lagging behind, which is why ABC benefited greatly by fast reporting from its Boston affiliate during the days following the bombing. Coverage of the 1963 Kennedy assassination, and particularly Walter Cronkites reporting on CBS, is often cited as the gold standard for handling breaking news in the pre-Internet era. Cronkites work, brilliant as it was, along with that of affiliate KRLD, contained many errors in the early going, among them: that a suspect was under arrest, when in fact none was; that a secret service agent was killed; that a witness saw a colored man fire the shots. In his memoir years later, Cronkite boasted, We beat NBC onto the air by almost a minute. Here are three areas I wish Scott Pelley had touched upon. First, the biggest threats to established media are cutbacks. As I write this, new layoffs are reported at two New York papers, and NBC has canceled the news magazine Rock Center. Accurate reporting requires layers of editors and factcheckers, and its those layers that are going up in flames. Second, media shouldnt really be judged on emergencies that captivate the nations attention as much as they should on digging up the truth about topics like government and the economy, to name just two. Does anyone fear the impact of Twitter and Facebook in these areas? Need we worry about journalists trying to be first with this type of news? Finally, conventional news outlets are being influenced too much by creeping tabloidism and, in the case of electronic media, by an overdose of politically-weighted opining. These matters are governed largely by the business office, by the people also responsible for sweeping cutbacks. In the digital age there undoubtedly is more bad information than ever before. Thats not the fault of the choir Scott Pelley was addressing at a luncheon of journalists. Their house, as he referred to it, isnt on fire, but it is being fired upon.

C M Y K The doctors at Florida H ospital Heartland Medical Center were definitely perp lexed, but they believed from the outset he would have to have a heart trans-p lant. So destructive and damaging was the attack, t here seemed no alternative. Meanwhile, Serrano developed severe complications f rom a variety of medications he received to help with pain and to continue to stabilize him. That, in turn, caused him to sink very suddenlye ven closer to deaths door. Panic ensued. Prayer requests began filtering to and throughout St. John United Methodist Church,w here the Serrano family has attended for about 12 years. V igils and special prayers led by Rev. Ronald DeGenaro Jr.a re ongoing. Faith is the thread that knits this very active church family together. But soon another fear surfaced: Howw ould the Serrano family pay for all the medical expenses and the costs of Edwins month-long hospital stay? They had no insurance. T he Costa Rican-born Serrano was employed at the Holiday Inn Express on U.S. 27, north of Sebring. Edwin and Damaris have three children: Kenny, who served four years in the U.S. Army and is now assistant manager at Subway; Karen, who is employed at Newsome Eye & Laser Center; and Diego, who is now a student at South Florida State College, hoping to become a pilot in the U.S. Air Force, and working part time at Yiannis. The Serrano family is very close and very strong in their Christian faith. We believe our prayers were answered, Serrano said in a recent interview. The doctor at Florida Hospital said I should have a transplant, but the medications had really messed me up. After three weeks, Serrano continued, I was sent to Orlando where a wellknown professor and cardiologist said my situation was weird. The heart specialist quite obviously was referring to the tremendous damage his heart sustained and stated that, if Serrano had not been in top physical condition or had he been over weight, he would have likely died instantly. But the Orlando specialist decided against immediate transplant surgery, putting Serrano on new medications and setting a threemonth watch period. Serrano wears a Life Alert button. The Serranos still do not know what the future holds. The folks at St. John United Methodist Church have decided to help the Serrano family defray medical expenses by hosting a spaghetti dinner at the churcha t 4 p.m. Saturday. All proceeds will go to their cause. Tickets are: adults, $8; children under 12, $5. Seating times will be 4, 5 and6 p.m., with take-out and walk-in tickets available at t he door. If you wish to donate to the fundraisinge ffort, checks can be sent to St. John United Methodist Church, 3214 Grand Prix Drive, Sebring, FL33872.M ake checks payable to St. John U.M. Church, and mark in the Memo for Serrano Family. Call the church at 382-1736 for details. We praise God for my life being spared, Serrano said. Avalve does not work still, and the doctor said he doesn ot understand how I am still here.

No one knows better what is normal i n a community than the people who live there every day H ays said if residents see something suspicious, they s hould call the HCSO or their local police department. Summer also brings an increase in car burglaries,w ith three reported in the Sebring Country Estates a nd Sebring Hills areas Tuesday night. Hays said that car burglar ies tend to come in bunches. We seldom get just one. When this person or these people go through an area t hey hit numerous vehicles so well get three to maybe as many as 10 in one place, she said. Mobile home communit ies are especially vulnerable because of the proximity of residences next to one another. Neighborhoods like S ebring Hills and Sebring Country Estates are also l ikely targets because of the number of homes and its p retty easy to walk from house to house, not so much like maybe Spring Lakew here the homes are spaced a bit farther apart. Teens dont have the cons traints of school nights during the summer and may b e looking for something to do and that something to do doesnt always fall with-i n the confines of the law. Sometimes, they just go a round checking car doors. When they find an unlocked vehicle sometimes the temptation is too great and they help themselves toi tems such as cell phones, wallets, purses, credit cards, C D and DVD players. Simply locking your vehicle and taking these items withy ou can prevent this crime. Hays said that anyone w ho wishes to help their local Neighborhood Watch or wants to start one in t heir community should contact her at 402-7369. And dont wait until the seasonal residents return to get your group togethers he added. This is the time when extra eyes are most needed in our neighborhoods. Start the group now, and whent he northern residents return augment the program to a ccommodate them.

Tim Sheffield began work as the new warden at the facility ont he grounds of the Avon Park Bombing Range earl ier this month. Its actually a homecoming of sorts forS heffield, who began his career at APCI in the late 1 980s. I started here as a corrections officer back in 1989, he said. Since that time, S heffield has worked his way up through the r anks, from sergeant all the way to his last post at Martin CorrectionalI nstitution, where he served as assistant ward en. Like APCI, the MCI facility inI ndiantownhouses adult male inmates. The International E xposition Center, which is a joint venture between t he Department of Corrections and the Department ofA griculture for the purpose of housing and showing cattle, is undert he supervision of t he MCI. The Glades Work Camp, theLoxahatchee Road Prison, West Palm Beach Work Release Center,A tlantic Work Release Center, Sago Palm Work Camp and Fort Pierce Work Release Center also are part of the MCI oper-a tion. The Avon Park facility was established in 1957 to house minimumand medium-custody adult males. In 1977, it began accepting close-custody inmates. Avon Park Work Camp remains under the supervision of APCI. Sheffield said when he first began here, much of the old work camp was still in full operation. I think the chapel is the only original part of that camp left, Sheffield said. Interestingly enough, he said that over the years the census of the facility has dropped. e had around 700 when I first started. I think we have a little over 500 now, he said. In the past, APCI was noted for having a larger population of elderly and disabled inmates. However, Sheffield said that no longer is the case. e have them from 20 on up, he said. Sheffield has only been in the post for about two weeks. He said he has spent the bulk of his time getting to know the staff and the facilities as they are currently. Other thana few procedural changes, he said he had no plans to make any major modifications. Because of the current budget constraints, I dont see that there will be much different for a while, he said.

NEWS-SUN-6155 BOSTON (AP Boston Marathon runners who were stopped on thec ourse when bombs went off at the finish line will have a chance to come back and run again next year, race organizers saido n Thursday. One month and one day after the April 15 explosions that killed three people and wounded hundreds more, the Boston Athletic Association said that 5,633 people who were stopped on the second half of the course when the race was shut down at 2:50 p.m. will be allowed to register early for next years race. The opportunity to run down Boylston Street and to cross the finish line amid thousands of spectators is a significant part of the entire Boston Marathon experience, B.A.A. executive director Tom Grilk said. With the opportunity to return and participate in 2014, we look forward to inviting back these athletes. The B.A.A. said runners who passed the halfway checkpoint at 13.1 miles but hadnt reached the finish line will get a code to register in August; regular registration is scheduled to begin in September. Runners will be required to pay the entry fee the amount hasnt been determined yet but they will not have to re-qualify by running another marathon in a given time. Normal registration for the Boston Marathon requires a qualifying time from 3 hours 5 minutes for an 18to 34-year-old man to 5:25 for an 80year-old woman. The requirement forces most runners to spend a full year training.

When Ferrell needed to l ocate a place to house artwork from elementary stud ents who participated in a Peace of Highlands County contest by drawing about Good Deeds, Ferrell had only one location in mind. Brewsters popped in my head as a venue right away F errell said. When I thought about the contest and thought about Bruce, I didnt give it a s econd thought. No one else even came to mind. Ive known for some years that Bruce was a patron o f the arts here in Highlands C ounty. Bruce was quite e nthusiastic about it. The artwork has been on display inB rewsters for about three w eeks now and hes allowing i t to stay through the end of M ay, Ferrell said. Bruce is just a wonderful guy. Hes great to work with and he is just a great supporter of the arts. A rt Lefkowitz is one of the c oordinators for the Scribes N ight Out events that take place every second and fourth Sunday at Brewsters, a n event that allows local w riters, poets, novelists and s torytellers to showcase their written works. Lefkowitz has been a part of the organization since its inception and recalled how t he group went about decidi ng where to house their m onthly events and meetings. ell, years ago when Brewsters first opened, weh eard about the new coffee s hop and how nice the owner was, so we just started going there. About three years ago, when we started Scribes Night Out, we just thought that Brewsters would be the best place to have it,L efkowitz said. Rogers opens the coffee s hop doors to those looking for a place to share the things they love with like-minded p eople. Many writers and singers have performed and shared their intimate and private works in a safe, inviting place because of Rogersa ltruism. He is really a great guy and has become a great friend. Hes giving us a roof over our head for free. Hea llows us to use his speakers, his microphone, all of his e quipment for nothing. He constantly offers us his supp ort and help. Hes just a fun guy to know both socially and professionally L efkowitz said. The coffee shop has continued to grow over the years, yet Rogers still manages to find time to volunteera t events such as Heartland Idol. There are days when he works just horrible hours and hes on his feet 10 or 12h ours, but he will stay open late for us, Lefkowitz said. We try to have quick meetings and get out of his hair e arly but he always says No, no you guys just keep going, take your time. R ogers does more than just offer a meeting place. He sometimes offers advice, too. He jumps in from time to time and puts his two centsi n, Lefkowitz said with a chuckle. Its usually really great advice, to be honest. He doesnt ignore us.

C M Y K B y KELLI KENNEDY Associated PressFederal health officials say tare proposing to overhaul federally funded child care centers across the country,b eefing up safety standards including background and f ingerprint checks for employees and requiring states to better monitor the facilities. Roughly 1.6 million U.S. c hildren attend child care centers on subsidies from the federal government. But health, safety and program quality requirements fort hose facilities vary widely and states monitor them through a patchwork of rules, according to three senior administration officials, who spoke about the proposed rules to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly before Thursdays scheduled announcement. The proposed changes are part of a broader agenda by President Barack Obama to ensure health and safety across all early learning environments and to improve the quality of facilities and their workers to prepare children for kindergarten. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services officials said the rules would increase accountability among child care providers and improve transparency so parents know more about the facility their child is attending. States would have to comply with the standards to receive the federal funds. Workers would undergo fingerprinting and background checks and be required to receive training in first aid, CPR, safe sleeping for babies and poison prevention, the officials said. The proposal also would set guidelines for transporting children in an effort to reduce the number of deaths of children left in cars. States also would be required to conduct unannounced, in-person inspections at each child care center. States vary widely on how they monitor child care centers, with some allowing self-certification for facilities to check off on a mailed-in form whether they have smoke detectors and safety plans. That wouldnt fly under the new rule, the officials said. Many parents mistakenly think their child care facilities are already following these measures, and the officials said they want to better inform families about facilitiestrack records.

Rick Scott on Wednesday to veto legislation that would expedite the states capital punishmentp rocess, worrying it will condemn some innocent men to death. If (this bill, it would have ended my life.I am innocent, said Seth Penalver, who was exonerated after 18 years in prison. Penalver and Herman Lindsey, who was freed after three years on death row,p leaded with the Republican governor to grant him a m eeting, saying at least 13 people currently on death row have exhausted theirp ost-conviction appeals and gone through the clemency p rocess. They fear that if Scott signs the Timely Justice Act, the governor could be putting innocent inmates to death withouta mple time and adequate assurance that they truly are g uilty. The two appeared at a news conference Wednesday. The bill, which was r ecently passed by the Republican-led Legislature, e ssentially minimizes the time between sentencing and execution by creating tightert imeframes for appeals and post-conviction motions and by imposing reporting r equirements on case progress. The measure also r e-establishes a separate agency for north Florida to provide appellate-level legal representation to inmatess entenced to death, and requires them to pursue all p ossible remedies in state court. It would also require a g overnor to sign a death warrant within 30 days of a State S upreme Court review of a capital conviction. The state would be required to executet he defendant within 180 days of the warrant. The law comes as F loridas capital punishment process has come under i ntense scrutiny and has been criticized for allowing some condemned inmates to lang uish for decades on death row. ANew York Times edit orial published Tuesday said the bill was grotesquely named. Florida has exonerated 24 m en on death row since 1973, more than any other s tate, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. Florida now has 405 i nmates on death row, more than any other state except C alifornia. It takes an average of 13 years for an inmate to move from sentencing toe xecution. Penalver hired a private investigator and found new e vidence, which he said prosecutors had hid from h im, that pointed to other suspects. He was freed in December 2012, after crying like a baby and dropping to his knees in prayer int he courtroom as jurors exonerated him on three firstdegree murder convictions, armed robbery and armed burglary. After 18 years inp rison, the first thing he vowed to do was to find a church. It was 3:30 a.m. in downtown Fort Lauderdale, but Penalver, now 40, founda church and prayed. Then, he hit the beach, longing to see palm trees and the ocean. Lindsey said many attorneys handling death row cases are underpaid andd ont have the resources to conduct extensive investigat ions for new evidence. Critics worry that DNA evidence might be introducedl ater that proves a condemned prisoners innoc ence. oure willing to sign a bill for the death warrants, but youre not willing to takea look at what is really happ ening, Lindsey said, referring to Scott. T he governor has given little indication about where he stands on the bill, but hiss pokeswoman, Jackie Schutz, said Wednesday, We want to h ear from Floridians about the merits of this legislation, which our general counselso ffice is currently reviewing. Supporters of the measure s ay that numerous people have sat on Floridas death r ow for longer than 30 years, making a mockery of the justice system and further hurting the victimsfamilies because they have to wait fory ears for closure. Mark Schlackman, senior program director for Florida State Universitys Center for Advancement of HumanR ights, said the bill was illconceived but has also been mischaracterized by some advocacy groups. He said it wouldnt necessarily meani mmediate death warrants for a set number of inmates. He also said the portion of the law requiring the governor to sign a death warrant within 30 days of review ism oot because the governors clemency powers cannot be a bridged. Schlackman hopes the governor will sign the bill asa signal that the state is open to more meaningful reforms g oing forward, including unanimous jury legislation. Under state law, a jury now only needs a majority, not a unanimous recommendation,f or a death sentence. He pressed for similar reforms t hat were pointed out in a scathing 2006 report by the American Bar Association. The concerns about undue delay in the process s houldnt be ignored but they should be cast within the larger context of comprehen-s ive review of Floridas entire death penalty process to minimize risk that innoc ent people be put to death and that was not the emphas is of this bill, he said. Ex-death row inmates: Veto Timely Justice Act MCT James Richardson became a minister while serving 21 years in Florida prison five of t hem on death row before a woman, who was baby sitting his seven children and step children, admitted that she, not Richardson, killed them by lacing their food with pesticide and he was exonerated. Seth Penalver e xonerated after 18 years in prisonIf (this bill b een law, it w ould have e nded my life. I am innocent. Feds propose overhaul for child care centers Nevertheless, the board now has had the operation classified as a limited lia-b ility corporation, or LLC, through the state of Florida. Councilman Garret Anderson asked what lia-b ilities the city might be under were it to undertake a mowing program for the site. Any time you own or manage a property you are going to have liabilities, City Attorney Gerald Buhr said. ou have insurance for that, but if you start this you may be in the business of doing it. There were concerns about the council setting precedent by agreeing to maintain private property, with Avon Park Mayor Sharon Shuler indicating similar requests have been denied in the past. I remember very clearly when the folks from Bougainvillea Cemetery came up here and begged us to take over the maintenance and mowing of that area, she said. They did it several years in a row and each time the city said noand they had money to pay for it. She agreed with others that the city should not be in the cemetery business. If you talk with any of the other cities that maintain cemeteries, there is always a problem, she said. Gray said her request to the city was a last resort, with work days turning out fewer and fewer volunteers. She said that getting help for the project from area churches also had not been rewarding. Asuggestion that the Southside Community Redevelopment Agency might be able to help reportedly will be investigated. The question hinges on whether such a project would be allowed under the CRAs plan. It is the removal of slum and blight, suggested Avon Park Administrative Services Director Maria Sutherland. Cemetery Board member and former Avon Park city councilman Aljoe Hinson suggested there might be a racial component in the decision. It seems as though when it belongs to black folks you struggle .., he said. Council members responded that their hesitance was the issue of entering into a long-term contract with a private property owner. Former Avon Park mayor Tom Macklin offered his personal help in mowing at the site and said he would query his church about adopting a month for clean-up at the site. I think there still are some opportunities for the faith community to step up, even if its the men and the youth of the church, regardless of whether they are north of Main Street or south of Cornell, which seems to be a problem we run into, he said. Councilman Parke Sutherland doubled down on Macklins offer, pledging to personally chip in some money if needed.

C M Y K Retirement. I guess it happens in every mans life, or at least if youre lucky enough to make it to retirement age. In my case, after working in the corporate world for the last 45 years, Im finally hanging up my suits and putting the briefcase away toe nter a new phase in my life. I ve dreamed of this day for a long time being able to go fishing whenever I want, working around the house and finally getting around to some of my wifes honey-lists and finally having time to work on my m any hobbies. The good news is Ill finally be able to take guide trips during the week. As many of you know, my guide fishing trips have been pretty much limited to fishing on the weekend, with a few exceptions. Now, instead of referring folks to other guides that are able to fish Monday through Friday, I can schedule tripsa ny day of the week. Not to mention the fact that I can pick and choose the days I want to fish,b ased on the weather. Its always been tough w atching the weather channel and seeing the perfect d ays days with light winds, minimal chance of r ain or days just before a cold front and not being able to go fishing. I can also extend my fishing area to include places like the Stick Marsh, the Everglades and the phenomenal fishing in the canal system in Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. Trips to Santee-Cooper, Lake Fork and Toledo Bend are also on the horizon. Expanding my custom rod building business is also something Ill have time for. Ive been building rods for over 30 years, but its always been challenging trying to combine this small business with a full-time job. Over the years, Ive tied flies, poured jogs and spinnerbaits and worked on a number of prototypes for different lures. With time on my hands, I can finally get back into the many hobbies Ive been forced to shelve over the years. And finally, Ill have time to finish a book Ive been working on for the last 15 years. Ive started and stopped, edited and re-written, and all but started over a dozen times on this manuscript,o nly to reach those writerblock periods where I put it away and forget about it. Like all want-to-be write rs, I think the book will be a best seller, at least with f ishermen and women who a re passionate about bass fishing. The name of the book is Queenie, The Legend of Lake Okeechobee. Im sure you can figure out from the title, the story is about a legendary largemouth bass. In the past, Ive also written articles for a number of fishing publications, which I hope to continue, as well as my weekly column with the News-Sun. Although Ive had no real formal training, Ive always enjoyed writing and my colSPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, May 17, 2013 Page B3 Fishin Around... Don Norton The Golden Years See NORTON, Page B3 MCTphoto Trainer Shug McGaughey leads Kentucky Derby winner Orb at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore, Maryland, Tuesday, May 14. The 138th running of the Preakness Stakes is Saturday. By DAVID GINSBURG Associated PressBALTIMORE For a while there, it looked as if the Preakness was shaping up to be a runaway victory for Kentucky Derby winner Orb. Then came the post-position draw. Suddenly things got very interesting. Orbs pursuit of the Triple Crown received an unexpected jolt Wednesday when trainer Shug McGaugheys horse drew the rail for Saturdays race. McGaughey tried to brush off the development as a mere inconvenience, but he couldnt entirely mask his disappointment over starting inside eight other horses in the smallest Preakness field since 2007. Obviously, if I was going to pick it out, I wouldnt have picked the 1, McGaughey said. But with only nine horses in there to run a mile and three-sixteenths, with a rider like Joel (Rosarios going to figure out what to do. Hell have him in the right spot. Thats the plan. Yet, if Orb doesnt get in front early, he risks becoming pinned on the rail or pushed to the back of the field. The inside post is even worse in the Derby, where this year there were 19 horses in the field. If it had come out the 1 in the Derby, youd almost have felt like you needed to go home, McGaughey said. But I dont feel that way here. Still, history suggests Orbs advantage in this race has dwindled, even though he was made the even-money favorite in the morning line. Only twice since 1950 has a horse won from the No. 1 post Bally Ache in 1960 and Tabasco Cat in 1994. So the rest of the field has a little bit more hope than it did before Orb got stuck on the rail. Out of the nine numbers, the 1 is probably the one you want the least, said Al Stall Jr., the trainer of Departing. Mylute, who will start from the No. 5 post as the second-favorite at 5-1, trailed Orb for much of the race in Kentucky. This race could develop quite differently with Orb inside. e need to make up three or four lengths, and that may be one of the factors that helps us, said Todd Quast, general manager of GoldMark Farm, co-owner of the Derbys fifth-place finisher.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Spring, a time of r enewal, where seeds planted are hoped to flourish. S uch is the time and scenario for high school football teams througho ut the state. Perhaps some fresh new faces coming up from the junior varsity level to take their chance at cracking the varsity line-up. Often, it is a matter of a new offensive scheme, or set of plays, that even returning veterans need to get familiar and comfortable with. And above all else, it gives the players the chance to get ready in the relatively cooler conditions a far cry from the brutal, dog days of the late-summer practice season. And so the Blue Streaks were on Firemens Field Wednesday afternoon, continuing their spring practice schedule and getting set for tonights Blue and White game at 6:30 p.m., along with the 3rd Annual Spring Football BBQ preceding the game from 4-6 p.m. And at this stage of the proceedings, the usual stations of drills, from tackling to blocking to pass patterns, are at a minimum as the team gets itself fully familiar and fluid with the play calls. Two sets of offenses running through plays, with quarterback hopefuls Jair Watson and ConnorC ook leading their respective squads. Afew rounds of plays to get the timing down, and then full speed a nd virtually full contact against a defense. After the battle for in-team bragging rights tonight, the Streaks will practice for another week before facing Avon Park in the Spring Game to close out this season of preparation.

The 38-year-old Englishman recently won a league title in a fourth country with Paris Saint-Germain. He said in a statement Friday he is thankful to PSG for giving me the opportunity to continue but I feel now is the right time to finish my career, playing at the highest level. Beckham has two games left this season with PSG. He also played for Real Madrid and the Los Angeles Galaxy, winning titles with both those clubs as well as with United. If you had told me as a young boy I would have played for and won trophies with my boyhood club Manchester United, proudly captained and played for my country over one hundred times and lined up for some of the biggest clubs in the world, I would have told you it was a fantasy. Im fortunate to have realized those dreams, Beckham said. On the international stage, Beckham has made 115 appearances for Englands national team a record for a player other than a goalkeeper. o this day, one of my proudest achievements is captaining my country Beckham said. I knew every time I wore the Three Lions shirt, I was not only following in a long line of great players, I was also representing every fan that cared passionately about their country. Im honored to represent England both on and off the pitch. ... I want to thank all my teammates, the great managers that I had the pleasure of learning from. I also want to thank the fans who have all supported me and given me the strength to succeed. Beckham to retire from soccer at end of season

Quast said, Were ecstatic about it. With this horse,i t doesnt matter as much, but it sure is nice being inside, a little bit toward the middle, and then having Orbi nside us and Departing inside us, the two big t hreats. Its great to be outside of them. D eparting, a bay gelding, won the Grade III Illinois D erby on April 20 and skipped the Kentucky Derby because Stall did not think the horse was ready. The trainer thinks it might be an advantage at the Preakness. In this day and age, the modern thoroughbred seems to like a little time inbetween races. I dont know why, Stall said. So were fortunate enough to have 28 days between the Illinois Derby and now. It gave us time to improve and he really has improved. You can see it on a day-to-day basis when you train him. Stall is among those who believe the rail wont be a hindrance to Orb. The post doesnt really matter in this type of race, this type of track with a nine-horse field, he said. s just a good party to come to. Orb won the Derby by 2? lengths and has won five straight races, so hes certainly worth of being the favorite in spite of his starting position. I dont know that the rails all that bad, said Hall of Fame trainer D. Way ne Lukas, who has three horses in the race: Oxbow,Will Take Charge and Titletown Five. Orb is still the one to beat.

LeBron James scored 23 points, Wade added 18 and had a brilliant 45-second sequence that proved crucial, and the Heat clawed backf rom an 11-point second-half d eficit to beat the Chicago Bulls 94-91 on Wednesday night and close out their second-round series in five games. e gave it everything we had, James said. I have no energy left. T he Heat outscored Chicago 25-14 in the fourth quarter to escape and advance. I knew the fourth quarter was going to be tough so I wanted to re-tape my knee, said Wade, who has been battling bone bruises on his knee for several weeks. I knew I was going to come back into a grind. Our trainers did a great job of getting it taped ite nough so I could come out and play Did they ever. Wade had a blocked shot, d efensive rebound, offensive rebound and putback slam a ll in a late 45-second span to help cap a wild night of w ild comebacks. The Heat blew an early 18p oint lead, then pulled off a late rally to finish off the depleted Bulls, who still had two chances on their last possession to force overtime. But Nate Robinson and Jimmy Butler missed 3-pointers, time expired, and Miami moved on to face Indiana or New York next week. Dwyane is uncanny, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. When the competition is at its highest, and its fiercest, he finds a way Carlos Boozer finished with 26 points and 14 rebounds for the Bulls, who were without Derrick Rose for the 99th straight game, as well as Kirk Hinrich (calf Luol Deng (illness Robinson scored 21 points, Butler had 19, and Richard Hamilton 15 for the Bulls, who dropped the final four games of the series. Obviously were disappointed in losing the series, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. But I was never disappointed in our team. I thought our team fought hard all year long. There was no quit in them. True all the way to the end. Ateam that played without the 2011 NBAMVPin Rose, and dealt with a slew of other issues along the way, was within a couple shots from forcing the reigning champions to fly back to Chicago fora Game 6 on Friday night. eve got warriors here, Boozer said. If were healthy next season, were going to be pretty good. The Heat say they have more than a few of those warrior-types as well, including Wade, who said privately before the game that he was amused about constant speculation surrounding his knee which has been banged up for weeks. When the stakes were highest Wednesday, he was there for the Heat. Ill go on and on about how great he is, James said. I really dont care for the trash talk that he receives. Shane Battier opened the fourth quarter with a 3-pointer to get Miami within five. Another 3-pointer from Battier over Boozer, hisf ellow Duke alum came n ot long afterward, and he connected on a pair of free throws after being fouled on a 3-point try to cut Chicagos lead to 81-79. Norris Cole had a pair of baskets, the second being a left-handed driving dunk, to p ut Miami on top, and the Heat found a way to close it out from there, even though it wasnt easy, by any measure. Robinsons 3-pointer with 1:43 left got the Bulls to 9491. No one scored again, even though there were plenty of chances both ways. When it was finally over, the Heat lingered on the court in celebration. W ade held on to the game ball as he shook a few fans hands, and he, James and Bosh exchanged some highfives the last three Miami p layers to leave the floor. I had a good couple of minutes, Wade said. I knew t heyve seen a lot of LeBron and Norris. I knew they w erent prepared for me to attack which is what I was a ble to do. Miami will open the East finals at home next week, and itll be a playoff rematch from its march to the title last season. If Indiana beats New York the Pacers lead that series 3-1 on Thursday night, then the Heat and Pacers will meet in Game 1 in Miami on Monday night. If the Knicks extend the Pacers to at least six games, then the East finals would open Wednesday night, regardless of opponent. The Heat will almost surely be big favorites against either Indiana or New York, though its certain either opponent would enter a series against Miami with plenty of confidence. The Knicks went 3-1 against the Heat this season, outscoring them by 11.5 points per game and winning both of their games at Miami convincingly. The Pacers went 2-1 against the Heat, winning twice in Indianapolis and losing their lone game in Miami. To put that in some more perspective, the Heat went 2-5 against the Knicks and Pacers, and are now 72-12 against all other NBAclubs this season. It only gets more difficult and more challenging, Spoelstra said. Thats what competitors want. Then again, given how Miami has played over the last 3 1/2 months, the notion of the Heat losing to anybody four times might seem downright impossible. The Heat lost at Indiana on Feb. 1. They won at Toronto two days later, the first victory in what became a run of 27 straight wins and the start of a stretch that has seen Miami go 45-3 in its last 48 games. More than half the league 17 of the other 29 teams didnt win 45 games, total, this season, even including playoffs. Theyre a great team. A great team, Thibodeau said. Theyre not going to beat themselves. You have to beat them. No one would have thought the ending would be so exciting after the way this one started. Marco Belinelli took the Bullsfirst shot, a woefully short airball. Joakim Noah took their second shot, a very long airball. Their third possession was a turnover, and the night was shaping up like a Chicago disaster. It was 10-0 before half the crowd was in their seats, and 22-4 just past the midpoint of the opening quarter. Since the start of Game 4, in barely over 53 minutes of play, the Heat had outscored the Bulls by 40 points. Everyone in the building e xcept for the 20 or so guys in red uniforms or wearing suits on the Chicago bench had to be thinking that the series w as over. If so, then they were all wrong. Game 5 turned into a microcosm of the Bullsseason. They were unfazed, unflappable, unrelenting in the face of being counted out. And before long, the massive deficit was a thing of the past. e kept fighting, Noah said. And kept fighting. Boozer went 6 for 7 in the opening quarter, his layup late in the period getting the Bulls within seven before James scored to end the first and give Miami a 30-21 lead. The Bulls were unbothered, and just kept getting stops on one end, making baskets on the other. Butlers 3-pointer with 4:46 left in the half gave Chicago its first advantage of the night, 38-36. To recap, the game started with a 22-4 Heat run and in the 13 minutes that immediately followed, the Bulls rebutted with a 34-14 burst. By halftime, it was 53-47. In the third, after Chicago briefly led by 11 remember, they were down 18, making that a 29-point turnaround the Bulls took a 77-69 edge into the final 12 minutes. e grinded it out, Boozer said. We had chances. We just fell a little bit short. And Miami moved on, now halfway home in its quest fora second straight title. NOTES: Miami is 6-0 in its last six chances to close out a series. ... The Bulls had 16 turnovers, which Miami turned into 27 points. ... Hinrichs calf injury was improving, the Bulls said, but not to the point where he could play. Heat rally past Bulls to advance MCTphoto Shane Battier and LeBron James defend against Carlos Boozer in the low post Wednesday night. Boozers strong first quarter helped Chicago bounce back from a big early deficit to make a game of it. But the Heat rallied late to close out the series and advance to the Eastern Conference Finals.

C M Y K DearPharmacist: Ive had migraine headaches for 11 years and live on triptan drugs and ibuprofen. Therem ust be something else I can do. Please lend some sensible Suzy insight, Im desperate. J.C., Tuscon, Arizona A nswer: The sensible thing for me to do is help you determine the cause of your headaches, rather than list supplements youvep robably already tried. Migraines can steal the joy from your life, making youn auseous and sensitive to sounds, perfume and light, not to mention the pain!T here are 50 other symptoms too. E ven though your odds increase if a family member has migraines, I still thinky ou can overcome them if you know the cause, thats t he hardest part. Women are three times more likely to get migraines, compared to men,w hich speaks to an estrogen c onnection. A sudden drop in estrogen (like at theb eginning of your natural cycle or when coming o ff the pill for a week) can trigger a headache. Food sensitivities are common triggers, so Ida void foods that contain gluten, wheat, dairy, soy, eggs, corn,p rocessed cold-cuts, wine, sulfites and chocolate. Give it threem onths to be fair. Avoid food additives at all costs, such as artificial colors, sweeteners or MSG. Dont freak, its not thath ard to do if you choose to eat nothing from a box or can. Have you considered nutritional deficiencies?M agnesium deficiency is a common cause for headaches, depression, cramps and body aches. For the complete list of medications that rob you, refer to my book Drug Muggers. How crazy would you think I was if I told you thatH pylori (the same bug associated with ulcers) is tied to migraines? Arandomized, double-blind placebo controlled study proved it in2 012, and that was not the first study tethering bacteria, parasites, worms and viruses to migraines. Experts cannot agree on why migraines occur. Some think there are arterial changes which create more blood flow to the head.D rugs like Imitrex, Zomig, and Maxalt work by constricting blood vessels and should be taken immediately. Medicine wont preventf uture attacks. Thats why I stress the importance of finding the triggers. Speaking of stress, minimize it. O ther experts, including myself, think migraines have more to do with mitochondri al (mito pain-causing cytokines than with inflamed blood vessels. Your mito are energy generators and normally pump out ATP(energy molecule) but something goesa wry. Restoring mito health and reducing cytokines should become every migraine sufferers goal. Eradication ofi nfection can help while supplements that support mito health are critical. CoQ10 (or ubiquinol best. A 2002 study (Cephalalgiaat 61 percent of participantsf ound at least a 50 percent reduction in the frequency of migraine attacks over 4m onths with CoQ10. Migraineurs could also benef it tremendously from magnesium, riboflavin and lipoic acid. Wrap your head aroundt his type of thinking because my new ideas might h elp you reach your ultimate goal, a pain free life!

Whether you are looking to shed a few pounds that came with the cold weather, training for a race, or begin-n ing team workouts, there is no time like the present to g et moving. While some people find it easy to make a workout part of their daily routine, many struggle with creating a fit-n ess plan and sticking to it. Below are a few tips to help you create and maintain a diverse and healthy schedule this month and beyond: Bring a buddyExercise doesnt need to seem like a chore. Join a running group or grab a friend and head to the gym accountability will make you less likely to skip a workout. Track your tripsKeep a calendar and mark each trip you make to the gym, go for a run, or participate in a fitness activity. Tracking your progress and routines will allow you to make adjustments and improvements to your fitness plan. Start smallDont bite off more than you can chew. Set short-term realistic goals that are attainable. Lengthening your running distance each week, upping the number of reps you do on your favorite machine or increasing the weights you lift (by no more than 10 percent each week) will create a sense of accomplishment. Even when you feel like you do not have enough energy for a full workout, go outside for a walk, hop on the treadmill for 15 minutes or simply make it a point to take the stairs when possible every little step counts. Switch things upDo not get stuck doing the same routine each time you are heading to the gym. Try taking a class such as CrossFit, Boxing or Boot camp; join a summer sports league or sign-up for your first triathlon. Trying out different types of workouts will make you feel refreshed and allow you to exercise different muscles. Refuel your bodyIt is crucial to refuel your body post-workout with a mix of carbohydrates and high quality protein. One such protein-rich choice is RockinRefuel Intense Recovery, which is 100 percent real milk with 20 grams of protein and features a 2:1 carb to protein ratio which has been proven to maximize muscle recovery. Your muscles will feel the difference and your taste buds will appreciate the great taste of real milk. Remembering these tips can help you maximize your workouts and make them more enjoyable.

WASHINGTON (AP The Food and Drug Administration on Tuesday approved a genetic test from Roche to help doctorsi dentify patients who can benefit from a lung cancer d rug made by the companys Genentech unit. The diagnostic test is the first approved to detect genetic mutations found inr oughly 10 percent of patients with the most prevalent form of lung cancer, known as non-small cell lung cancer. P atients who test positive for the mutation are more likely to respond to Genentechs drug Tarceva as a first-choice treatment, and the FDAsaid it expanded the drugs approval for that use in its announcement. The drug was originally approved in 2004 as a second-line option after patients failed to respond to chemotherapy. Lung cancer is the deadliest form of cancer among men and women in the U.S. and is expected to kill nearly 160,000 people this year, according to the NationalC ancer Institute. Company studies found t hat patients with the genetic mutation detected by Roches test lived more than 10 months without their disease progressing, whent reated with Tarceva. That compared to more than five months for patients taking a standard chemotherapy drug combination. The approval of the cobas EGFR Mutation Test will allow physicians to identify non-small cell lung cancer patients who are candidates for receiving Tarceva as first line therapy, said Alberto Gutierrez, director of the FDAs office for diagnostics, in a statement. Companion diagnostics play an important role in determining which therapies are the safest. FDA approves genetic test for lung cancer drug The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN

C M Y K Page B6News-SunFriday, May 17, 2013www.newssun.com Healthy Living Are you one of the people who still have back pain one year aftert he symptoms started? Now what do you do? If you have not already stopped smoking, this is a good time to stop. Smoking has been shown toi ncrease back pain probably by its effect on the arteries to the discs. This is known to be the cause disc deterioration in the neck but is not as clear an effect in the back. Work with a physical therapist to s trengthen your abdominal muscles, loosen up tight sacroiliac joints (where the s pine attaches to the pelvis) or stretch out knots in your back muscles, both of which interfere with normal back motion and causep ain. The therapist can also mobilize (very gently if osteoporosis is present) stiff verteb ral joints. Beginning a fitness program to improve your cardiovascular fitness will not only help your heart but has been shown to decrease back pain although the reason isn ot clear. If your mattress is old you might consider buying a new more supportive one. I f you still have back pain after trying these, more study is needed. An MRI will show spinal stenosis, arthritic facet joints( the joints between vertebrae) or spinal stenosis (narrowing of the space for the s pinal cord). If you have a pacemaker or other reason that you cannot have an MRI a CTscan will give much of the same infor-m ation. It shows bone very well but does not show soft tissues, such as discs, as well as an MRI. E MG done by a neurologist will show if a specific nerve or nerves is pinched. Using t he information from these studies, your complaints and physical exam your doctor will help you decide on the best course of treatment. Acommon finding is small disc bulges not i mpinging on the nerve roots or spinal cord and/or spurring at several levels. This, combined with a complaint of generalized back pain and an exam without weakness or significant numbness, is the most common finding. Steroids arev ery helpful in relieving peripheral nerve pain. U nfortunately they do not get into spinal fluid well because the brain and spinal cord are protected against all foreign substances gooda nd bad by two layers of tough fascial tissue. Injecting steroids in to the area between these two layers (the epidural spaces teroids to the irritable area in a time-release dose. This relieves the pain in many cases. It is done by anesthesiologists as it is the same technique with different medicines used for anesthesia in delivering babies. If there are only one or two bad joints, the anesthesiologist can inject either the facets or the nerve roots near them with steroids under x-ray control. If the space for the spinal cord is narrowed on MRI/CTand you havei ncreased pain with walking, you probably have spinal stenosis. This is often confused with circulation problems. These also get worse with walking and better with rest-i ng. An exam of the pulses in your legs and oxygenation in your toes will differentiate these two diagnoses. Spinal stenosis will sometimes respond to epidural steroids but often requires surgery. The goodn ews is that especially in the older patient surgery for spinal stenosis has the m ost predictable good outcome. More on back pain and its treatment in the next column, so stay tuned.

The Massachusetts Medical Society offered testimony Tuesday at a Beacon Hill hearing by the Legislature's Joint Committee on Public Health. The bill would not only prohibit hospitals and clinics from selling cigarettes and other tobacco products, it would also block doctors from working in a professional capacity in locations where tobacco products are sold.

As he was getting out of the vehicle, a truck came along too closely and completely tore off the cars open door. Theb usinessman immediately grabbed his cell phone, dialed 9-1-1, and waited no more than five minutes before a policeman arrivedo n the scene. Before the officer could even ask any questions, theb usinessman started shouting hysterically. His beautiful Ferrari, which he had justp icked up the day before, was now completely ruined. H e exclaimed that no matter what a body shop did to it, the car would never be thes ame again. After the businessman f inally calmed down from his emotional tirade, the policeman shook his head in disbelief. I cannot believe how materialistic you are, hes aid. You have been so focused on your precious car t hat you havent taken the time to notice anything else! What in the world do you m ean? came the reply with shock and dismay. How can y ou say such a thing? The officer pointed out, Do you not realize that your l eft arm is missing from the e lbow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you! Oh no! screamed the horrified businessman. Wheres my Rolex? L earning to be content with what we do have is o ften difficult when living in a world that is obsessed with what it does not have. We arec onstantly bombarded with the idea of accumulating poss essions and keeping up with the Jones. God, interestingly enough, wants us to be wealthy. However, His desire is that we be spiritual-l y rich, not materially rich. Paul told Timothy in 1 T imothy 6:7-10, For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot takea nything out of it either. If we have food and covering, w ith these we shall be content. But those who want to get rich fall into temptation a nd a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all sortso f evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. W hen we earnestly desire material gain, we find the ruin and destruction that await the world. When we earnestly desire godly gain,w e find the eternal peace and contentment that await the faithful few. J esus taught in Matthew 6:19-21, Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,w here moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in a nd steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth norr ust destroys, and where thieves do not break in or s teal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Where is your treasure right now? Where is yourh eart right now? Make them both with God in Heaven!

Continued from B9 By JOCELYN NOVECK APNational WriterNEWYORK I hope that other women can bene-f it from my experience, Angelina Jolie wrote in a powerful op-ed article Tuesday, explaining her decision to go public with having her breastsr emoved to avoid cancer. B ut amid the accolades for the film stars coura-g eous revelation, doctors and geneti c counselors were careful to note that her medical situation an inherited genetic muta-t ion putting her at high risk of breast a nd ovarian cancer was very specific, and that herc ourse of action made sense for o nly a small category of women. Still, they hailed her b ravery and said that she would surely help increase awareness and thus, perh aps, help save some lives. Having this conversation e mpowers us all, said Rebecca Nagy, a genetic counselor who works frequently with women who test positive for a defectivev ersion of the BRCA1 gene, as Jolie did. Its wonderful what shes done. In a stunning op-ed piece in the New York Times, Jolie, 37, began by speaking of her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who died of cancer at 56, befores he was able to meet most of her grandchildren. The actress revealed that beginning in February, she underwent three surgeries which she succ eeded in keeping secret from t he public in which her breasts were removed,a nd later replaced by implants. I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastecto-m y was not easy. But it is one I am v ery happy that I made, Jolie wrote. My c hances of developing breast canc er have dropped from 87 percent to under 5 percent. I can tellm y children that they dont need to fear they will lose me to breast cancer T he actress also hinted that she might, at some p oint, have her ovaries removed, saying that she had started with the breasts because her risk of breast cancer was highert han that for ovarian cancer. She did not say how long ago she was diagnosed with the faulty gene. While admiring Jolies straightforwardness, cancer surgeons and others in them edical community were quick to point out that h ereditary cases of breast cancer account for only about 5 percent to 7 percento f all cases diagnosed each year. And those connected to the BRCA1 and BRCA2 g enes are an even smaller group. A nd so, women shouldnt just run off and get tested for those genes, said Dr. Robert Shenk, medical director of the BreastC enter at the University Hospitals Case Medical Center in Cleveland. My worry is that people will be inappropriately tested, said Shenk. wareness is great, butp eople shouldnt just run in off the street and get a test. I nstead, he said, genetic counseling, including a close review of a patientsf amily history, is crucial. Nagy, the genetic counselor, who is also president o f the National Society of Genetic Counselors, agreed. The clues are in the family history. Has there been cancer in multiple generations? she said. Are there clusters of cancers,l ike breast and ovarian, on the same side of the family? Has the cancer been diagnosed at an early age under 50? Jolie admired for bravery in mastectomy revelation M CT Angelina Jolie had three surgeries to remove her breasts and get implants after she learned she was highly likely to develop breast cancer. Angelina J olieI can tell my c hildren t hat they d ont n eed to fear they will lose me to b reast c ancer.

Please make your readersa ware that people driving motorhomes, towing fifth-wheel trailers andt ravel trailers cannot stop as quickly as a small car o r truck. When people cut in front of an RVor a larget ruck and slam on their brakes, it puts many peop les lives in danger. There is a reason we leave that large space between our RVand the vehicle in front of us. Itp rovides us room to stop as well as the ability to s ee whats happening in the traffic ahead. Your readers should a lso know that even though we RV-ers have m irrors and possibly rear video cameras, there are many blind spots espec ially if the car behind us is following too close or weaving in and out of lanes. The bottom line is: Be s afe. Be courteous. Drive like your life and the lives of others are in your control because it is literally true. Happy Camper, Pasco, Wash. D earHappy Camper: Im glad you wroteb ecause I have received several letters recently, asking me to alert my readers about the risk of driving too close to RVsa nd fifth-wheel vehicles. Too many motorists dont realize that its impossible to stop suddenly while pulling a load thatw eighs several tons. A word to the wise ... DearAbby: I have a friend who was raised Catholic. Im not Catholic, and every time I attend a wedding or funeral for one of her family members I feel uncomfortable and awkward. I often sit in the very back pew to go unnoticed. The Catholic Church offers beautiful, unique customs that I am simply ignorant about. I feel if I dont comply with customs at these events, I might come off as rude or disrespectful. On the other hand, if I do try, my ignorance may appear just as rude and disrespectful. What is the right thing to do in situations like these? I want to be respectful of any religion. Mannerly in Indiana DearMannerly: No rule of etiquette demands that you participate in the rituals of another persons religion. If you feel uncomfortable sitting while others kneel or stand, then follow their lead. Or, continue to sit quietly at the back of the church as you are doing, which is perfectly acceptable. However, only members of the congregation in good standing should take communion. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Rs need room to roam Dear Abby By DAVID GERMAIN APMovie Writer Star Trek Into Darkness is like fan-boy fiction on a $ 185 million budget. Its reverential, its faithful, its steeped in Trek mytholog y. Its also an excessively derivative what-if rehash of themes and interactions that came before, most of thec haracters lesser copies and even caricatures of the originals. The scenarios been hijacked and rejiggered from better Trek plots ofd ecades ago, the best verbal exchanges lifted nearly verb atim from past adventures. In short, the new chiefs of S tarfleet arent coming up with much to call their own. They pile on the spectacle in a way thats never been seen before in Star Trek,w hose old big-screen incarnations were so notoriously underfunded they had to go back and borrow props, miniatures and visual effectsf rom previous installments. The action in Into Darkness is top-notch, the visuals grand, though the movies needless conversion to 3-D muddies the images. But the heart is, well, halfhearted, as though the people of the 23rd century are there to mouth the standard logic-vs.-emotion, needs-of-the-many-vs.needs-of-the-few patter of Star Trek to count time before the next space battle or ray-gun shootout. Director J.J. Abrams was most definitely not a fan-boy for this franchise when he made 2009s Star Trek, which reintroduced Kirk, Spock and the rest of the starship Enterprise gang witha time-travel twist that allowed the William ShatnerLeonard Nimoy original to coexist with an entirely different destiny for the new players. Abrams grew up a fan of Star Wars, the next space saga hell be reviving witht he launch of a third trilogy. But his key collaborators, s creenwriters Robert Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof, are Trek fanb oys to their marrow. They know this world, they love this world, and like many fans, they have a particular fixation on 1982s StarT rek: The Wrath of Khan, the best that the franchise has ever had to offer, on the big-screen or TV. The 2009 reboot replayed a nd tweaked elements connected to Wrath of Khan, and Into Darkness mines that vein further. Some of that revisitation is cool in an alternate-history way, but the filmmakers remain so closely in orbit around yesteryears Star Trek that they wind up zigzagging fitfully through the Enterprises greatest hits. Into Darkness opens with a splashy action sequence to again show the cockiness of Capt. James Kirk (Chris Pine willingness to flaunt the rules and the icy intellect of half-Vulcan First Officer Spock (Zachary Quintow hos willing to sacrifice his life to stick to the Starfleet p laybook. Its clear these two younguns dont play well t ogether, but just as the space brass is about to split them up, Starfleet is hit by savage terrorist attacks by mysterious desperado JohnH arrison (Benedict Cumberbatch). Kirk, Spock and their Enterprise crew are dispatched to take Harrison out with weapons that couldp rove the mother of all drone strikes, maintaining t he usual see-how-relevantwe-are conceit of the Trekc osmos. But loyalties slip and shift as the Enterprise uncovers the strange history of Harrison and his connectionst o a hawkish Starfleet admiral (Peter Weller). Along the way, Spock hits some speed bumps in his romance with Zoe Saldanasb eautiful and brilliant Lt. Uhura, while Kirk meets Alice Eves beautiful and brilliant Dr. Carol Marcus rath of Khan fans well know who she is and her importance to Star Trek). The rest of the gang keeps up their routines. Curmudgeonly Dr. McCoy (Karl Urban moans, helmsman Sulu (John Cho) ably steers the ship, navigator Chekov (Anton Yelchin) does his precocious shtick and engineer Scott (Simon Pegg technical miracles. As Abrams moves on to Star Wars, it falls to some next-generation filmmaker to carry on Star Trek should more sequels follow. Abrams hasnt really guided the franchise into deep space, but he leaves it in a good place for successors to tell some riproaring sci-fi stories, without relying on reruns of old rek moments.
