What it is and where it will be remains a closely guarded secret ... but officials think youre going to like it. I am under a confidentiality agreement with regards to the specifics of the organization, said Highlands County Economic Development Commission Executive Director Stephen Weeks at Tuesdays Highlands County Commission meeting. I can tell you it is a nationally recognized firm and that everyone will be more than pleased once it is divulged. Code named Project Impala, commissioners proceeded to recommend it as a Qualified Brownfield Business under the Brownfield Redevelopment Program. That designation will put it in the pipeline for state and federal tax incentives. In the state of Florida we have qualified target industries, of which this is not a part. By passing this resolution, commissioners have certified this to be a qualified target industry for the purposes of tax abatement via their sales incentives, rebates and credits, Weeks said.

The young ladies have worked non-stop on their Go Red for Heart Disease campaign since last winter and have collected nearly $2,000 in donations. Washington and Massey have both been touched by heart disease in a major way. Washington lost her maternal grandmother last August due to complications during heart surgery. Masseys mother, Renee, underwent a successful heart surgery a few months ago. Both of the young women t ook it upon themselves to create a campaign that will raise awareness of heart disease in women all while raising funds to donate that will help the cause. The girls created several events that promoted the color red as a visual reminder of the battle against heart disease and the campaign. They started fundraising in December. We had a lot of local people that donated and quite a few businesses that contributed, said Washingtons mother Kim. The girls raised most of the money at the Mall Festival and Blueberry Festival. They sold lots of baked goods and had a raffle. An Avon Park firefighter who won the raffle donated back $150 of his winnings to the girls. W ashington and Massey raised $1,860 through their efforts. The money will be donated to the American Heart Association Go Red for Heart Disease Campaign on behalf of Washingtons grandmother and Masseys mother. Theyre both really excited about it. They are so glad that they could raise the money and thrilled that it is being donated for this cause, Kim Washington said. Washington and Massey presented a check to the district American Heart Association representative Kendra Elam Thursday at the Hotel Jacaranda. Former Miss Avon Parks donate money for heart disease

Throw in a host of other compensation benefits and pretty soon youret alking real money. Too much, really, to be fair to students struggling to payf or a college education. And too much for taxpaye rs. These extravagant compensation packages for thep residents of Floridas state colleges, formerly known as c ommunity colleges, were revealed this month in a state audit. In handing out pay and perks, it looks like too many college boards of trustees approach the negotiating table with a blank check,r ather than a posture of protecting the public purse. Look no further than E dison State College in Fort Myers, where ex-president Kenneth Walker got$ 837,085 a year. ... Gov. Rick Scott deserves c redit for ordering the audit, which found presidential pay and benefits vary widely f rom $144,000 at North Florida Community College t o more than $630,000 at Miami-Dade College often with no clear rationale. Only eight of Floridas 28 state colleges tie their presidentspay to performance. The Florida Legislature p assed a law in 2010 that limits pay for presidents to $225,000 a year from taxpayers. But the law allows trustees to supplements alaries with private funds, and the average presidents compensation has swelled to $350,403. Scott says he wants taxpayers to get the best returno n our investment in higher education. Now that hes p ulled back the curtain on presidential perks, we encourage him to rein in thei ncreases, set clear performance measures and restore p ublic confidence that our dollars arent simply going to support the lifestyles of the rich and famous. An editorial from the Orlando Sentinel. Kudos to Scott for pulling back curtain on presidential perks Start with a six-figure base salary for s tate college presidents. Add five f igures for their retirement, another five for deferred compensation and another five for housing. Forget the past, then you will need to forget the futureEditor: I hope everyone read Michael Reagans editorial in the May 15, 2013, News-Sun, because he told it like it is. The young people of today have no idea about World War II and the shared arrogance of Japan and Germany. Together, they caused the cruel torture and murders of our brave servicemen and never apologized for any of it. I was born five years after the second world war ended, but I came into the world during the Korean War.The American attitude was much different then towards Japan, Germany and Korea. D-Day was a horrible sacrifice of good American men. Michael is right that history is a great teacher, but the problem remains that some Americans havent learned anything from history. They continue to trust countries that, in my opinion, have yet to prove that they are our friends at all. Do you hear that Japan, Germany and Korea? Heck, lets throw China in there too. If you ignore historys lessons, you are doomed to repeat them. No, I dont buy any Asian or German products. If it isnt American owned and made, I just pass it by. I have never had an American product let me down. I believe that young Americans very much need to learn about the past and take our so-called friends with a huge grain of salt. The four countries I mentioned have not only had a negative effect on our past, but at present they are pulling the rug out from under our economy as well as taken away American jobs for old and young alike. I know Ive mentioned this before, but for every one job lost at Ford or General Motors, nine other American jobs disappear as well. Mr. Reagan didnt take his writing in the same direction that I have. But the fact remains, if you forget the past, you might as well forget the future too. Just look at all of the unpaid student loans out there that have been reneged on because kids have received education for non-existing jobs. Jerry Nargelovic SebringTDC asking for undeserved trustEditor: May 28 the Tourist Development Council (TDC sioners to override a public vote. They want to institute an ordinance of their own making. TDC asks us to trust in their expertise to do what is best for the county. Hindsight shows us TDC violated the public trust. They ignored spending guidelines, let administration costs run way over the percentage allotted, and diverted funds designated to attract the cultural tourist. TDCs expertise resulted in its inability to tap into the largest, most prosperous, segment of the market, the cultural tourist. TDC would like to blame this on art and cultural organizations (A&C The creative community points out TDC's archaic sport-centric guidelines/forms discriminate against A&C and need to be revised to reflect what other counties are using to attract this market. No matter how you slice it, TDC is hindered in its ability to reach its goals. Tourism is Floridas largest economy and TDC is our gateway to it. Our gates are only partway open. TDC is proposing an ordinance they say will improve its performance. They will ask the commissioners to raise the bed tax to 3 percent. Administration costs would then be fixed and taken from the top. They want 70 percent of the remaining funds to be used at their discretion without guidelines. TDC suggests freedom from guidelines could benefit A&C. Hindsight shows they took this freedom before, and A&C was cut out of the mix. They also want to remove A&C as a percentage of revenue. This would give TDC the power to not fund A&C in the future. This is a curious way to build trust and a working relationship with A&C. Will this help TDC enhance the image of Highlands County, bring cultural tourists here, enrich the community and bolster our economy? I dont think so. Apparently neither does TDC Chair Don Elwell. He was the only vote on the council against removing A&C as a percent of the bed tax. Their proposal misses the mark. A decade of TDCs discouraging A&C involvement has been counterproductive. Its time to shape an ordinance mandating A&C retain its percent and revise the guidelines to encourage it to do what it does best: draw tourists and enrich communities. Working together with A&C is what would enable TDC to improve its performance and open the gates wide to the whole market. email@example.com Fred Leavitt, president Heartland Cultural Alliance Well, the Honor Flight for 2013 is now history and I am proud to have been a participant. T he group was made up of World War II and following warsveterans. Since I served in World War II and the Korean fra-c as, I got to go along. We assembled at the Ag Center in Sebring, had a wonderful breakfast served by the Boy Scouts of the area and then boardedb uses for the two-hour trip to the airport at Fort Myers a nd took off for the flight for Washington, D.C. Two hours later, we a rrived at Reagan National Airport, debarked and s tarted the longest walk I have made since leaving the service. The walk form the landing area to the bus stop felt like a couple ofm iles. The flight took two hours and it was daylight w hen we landed there and took another long walk to the buses, boarded and pro-c eeded to our first stop the World War II M emorial. I especially enjoyed this stop because there weren ames on the memorial of places where I had flown in to pick up badly wounde d GIs and return them to the states for the advanced c are they required. This area was on islands in the Southwest Pacific and the Philippines. Next was at the Korean W ar Memorial where we made a short stop. Lots of memories are here too for the guys who served in the untitled fracas in Korea. I was stationed in Japan (Tachikawa Army AirB ase), just a few miles from the base of Fujiyama, a good aid to pilotage in good weather but a killer in bad. Then to Arlington National Cemetery. Thec emetery must cover at least 100,000 acres of territory. We toured the burial grounds until time for the changing of the guard att he unknown soldiers grave. I marveled at the timing that the soldier on duty displayed. Exactly 21 steps in front of the tomb, pause, 20 seconds face the tomb; pause, 20 seconds about face; change the rifle to the soldier away from the tomb and move 21 steps back to his starting position; pause, 20 seconds and repeat the same routine again. I dont know how long their session lasts but the tomb is guarded 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and it was a magnificent display. F rom Arlington, we moved to the Iwo Jima Memorial where a group photo was made and we visited the noteworthy flagraising statue that hasb ecome famous! We were running out of time, so we h eaded for the airport to catch the return flight to Fort Myers. I have to comment on the way we were a cclaimed. Everywhere we went there was a crowd waiting to shake hands and thank us for our service to the country. My reply was, Thank you for caring. Heading home I got a nother reminder of an event that happened during my time in the Air Corps.A bout half an hour I noticed the plane veering f rom its intended course and watched through the window as the pilot wass kirting the edge of a blanket of clouds that were scattered with flashes of l ightning. I had been flying a C-54 loaded with wounde d GIs from Japan to Kwajalin when we got too close to a thunderstorm and were struck by a bolt of lightning. All the flightc rew were blinded and the plane was all over the sky. One of the flight nurses fought her way up to the pilots compartment to see what was wrong. Seeing that we were all blinded byt he lightning, she jumped into my lap and kept the s hip in the air until we got our sight back. Dont know how long we were blinded, but that gal saved 41 lives that night. Y es, the trip brought back many memories, good and bad. There are so many folks I want to say thank you fort he trip that I cant list them here. I must say a great thank you to the Rotary organization that sponsored our trip and a special thanks to Jim Cole, my guardian on the trip. To all the folks behind the lines, Thanks for caring!

C M Y K B y BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING When questioned about the rules and regulations as to how county commissioners conductt heir meetings, the late Jimmy Gose, who was commission chairman at the time, responded, We pretty much do what we want. T hat laissez-faire method of allowing the chairman to decide if and when and for how long the public may comment on issues before the board has goneo n for decades with only minor skirmishes. T hat all may change in response to action taken by the Florida Legislature dur-i ng its last session. The new law (SB 50 a response to appeals court rulings on Floridas open government Sunshine Law. Those decisions interpreted the law as requiringo fficials to meet in public but not requiring them to g ive citizens a voice. Ill be bringing somethingback to you on thisa fter speaking to the chairman and perhaps speaking t o the rest of you a little bit, County Attorney Ross Macbeth said. T he bill instructs that citizens be given a reasonable opportunity to be heard. It a lso allows governments to set time limits on public comment. It talks about limiting the right to be heard accord-i ng to rules or policies so it says you are to proscribe procedures, Macbeth said. T o that end, Macbeth said he now would formulate sugg estions for commissioners to consider, saying he didnt t hink it would be a great difficulty. The board attorney o ffered the example of his experience in the legal w orld. When I go to court, you have X number of minutes or hours for that action w here public comment is taken. Theres a certain amount of time then thats it, he said. Macbeth said that could s erve to limit long meetings. Some have gone on all day and into the night. In other places some contentious meeting have continued ont o the next day. He said citizens simply would have to adjust accordingly to the amount of time allocated for a certain subject. M acbeth explained that the new rules did not apply t o quasi-judicial matters, but would apply to such things as zoning matters. T here were no comments on the issue by any of the c ommissioners, nor any word when the topic might come up again.

Generally, there is a 20 percent local match required for the Brownfield Incentive Program. However, commissioners were told due to the countys population Highlands is exempt from that provision. The term Brownfield engendered much discussion, with Weeks explaining that the definition has been changed. Brownfieldby true definition is a contaminated site. However, it now is considered to be an under-utilized site or an abandoned site, the EDC director explained. To complicate matters, action by the Florida Legislature this year will revert the definition back to w hat it was originally a contaminated site. In 2006, county commissioners designated the entire Highlands CountyE nterprise Zone as a Brownfield Site. Weeks told commissioners that not all businesses could take advantage of the definition. It depends on their legal structure. For example,an LLC (a Limited Liability Corporation) may not be eligible for all the types of incentives that are available. If they are a corporation, they are. Weeks said the EDC planned to put together an instructional to help businesses find out exactly how to utilize the program. Continued from A1 LAURACOLLIER Laura L.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comIt is time again for S ebring to become the prep baseball mecca for the state of Florida, as the Florida Athletic CoachesA ssociation, Sebring Firemen and Diamond S ports present the 35th Annual Baseball All-Star C lassic, which gets underway today. E ighty-eight of the top high school seniors from around the state began arriving late in the week and will get down to business today at Firemens Field with the Pro/College workout in front of dozens of Major League and college scouts. Divided among four teams, each squad of hopefuls will be looking to garner some more attention from the various scouts and/or make one last impression before the MLB Draft, which begins Thursday, June 6. The history of the FACA Classic shows what an elite experience the showcase is, as the list of former participants can read like a whos who of Major League talent. Prince Fielder, Alex Rodriguez, Chipper Jones and Zack Greinke haved donned the FACAjerseys before, with Kansas Citys third-year first baseman Eric Hosmer the most recent alum to have made it to the Show, having played here in the 2008 Classic. Sebrings own Corbin Hoffner participated in 2011, was drafted in the 14th round one year later and is currently working his way up through the Cubs farm system. Lake Placid second baseman Ricky Miller was named to this yearsEast team where he will be joined by area players Matt Saliba, Mitch Piatnik and Luke Borders from Winter Haven and Lake Wales Taylor Cockrell. I feel very honored that Although we havent officially moved into summer, based on the calendar, temperatures in the high 80s and low 90s, combined with higher humidity and afternoon thunderstorms tell a different story. L ast Saturday, Pastor D ereck Frymier and his friend, Jordan Rogers, joined me on a morning fishing trip to Lake Istokpoga. Ive fished with Dereck in the past, and hes caught some pretty nice bass at both Lake Istokpoga and Lake W alk-in-Water on our previous trips, and we were hoping to put 16-year old Jordan on a trophy largemouth. Dereck is the Pastor of New Life Fellowship Church, 2213 Rainbow Ave. in Sebring. Jordans had a couple of surgeries in the past and will be going back into the hospital for his fourth surgery in early June, and, as a result,w ill likely be in a cast and unable to fish throughout most of the summer. The day couldnt have b een any more perfect. Light winds out of the s outh, warm over-night temperatures and virtually no b oat traffic to contend with. Since Id been catching s ome nice bass on the south end of the lake, we opted to put in at the Windy Point boat ramp in Lake Placid, just off Rt. 621. The water is getting lower on every trip, and I couldnt help but notice the 3-4 inch drop since my last trip. Motoring out of the boat ramp area now requires the use of your trim to navigate the shallow water. Within minutes, Dereck, flipping with his wackyrigged plastic worm, nailed a nice two pounder, followed by me with a fish that hit my bait as quick as it hit the water. Flipping the reeds can be a tough way to fish, with plenty of snags and underwater objects more than willing to grab your bait. I typically flip with a Zoom Baby Brush Hog orw ith a YumDinger 4-inch black/blue plastic worm. But Derrick loves to fish a plastic worm on a wackyr ig which would seem to be a challenging bait to use in h eavy cover. M y exas-rigged plastics are pretty much weedless, and unless the tip of the hook becomes exposed, will generally move through the reeds and pads without snagging. But Derricks wacky rig, fishing a plastic rig with an SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, May 24, 2013 Page B3 Fishin Around...

Baseball Classic comes to town See FACA, Page B4 MCTphoto LeBron James drives for the winning score in Wednesdays overtime win, giving the Heat a 1-0 edge in the Eastern Conference Finals. TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressMIAMI It could have been the perfect matchup to cap an unforgettable game. LeBron James driving to the rim to face Roy Hibbert, one play to decide Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. Alas, Hibbert was on the bench for the deciding moment. And James made Miamis gamewinner seem way too easy. James blew past Paul George and made a layup as time expired, and the Heat found a way to outlast the Indiana Pacers 103-102 in a backand-forth Game 1 of the East title series Wednesday night. There were 18 ties and 17 lead changes, two coming in the final 2.2 seconds, the last on a play that had Hibbert shaking his head in disbelief at his seat 75 feet away from where James beat both the clock and the Pacers in one swoop. Once I got the ball, James said, I was the only option. He finished with his ninth career postseason triple-double 30 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists which might have been easily overlooked on this night. The Heat looked like they had the game won in regulation, before George connected on a tying 3pointer from 32 feet away with 0.7 seconds left to extend the game. And then the Pacers looked like they had stolen Game 1 when George made three free throws for a one-point lead with 2.2 ticks left in overtime. They simply left James too much time. He caught the inbounds pass from Shane Battier, benefitted from George overplaying him to his left side James is left-handed, just plays right-hand dominant drove and released the ball with about four-tenths of a second remaining. By the time the shot dropped softly through the net, the clock showed zeroes. He continues to amaze, Heat guard Dwyane Wade said. The Pacers had a slightly different perspective. It was gut-wrenching, Hibbe rt said. So, too, was the decision that Pacers coach Frank Vogel had to make before the final play. Vogel calls James the best offensive player in the game. He also calls Hibbert the best rim protector in the game. He likely wouldnt face much argument on either point. Vogels dilemma was this: Put Hibbert on the floor and risk that he couldnt cover a possible jumper by Chris Bosh, the Heat center-bydefault who is probably the best outside-shooting big man in the game or hope the Pacers could get one more stop without him. And remember, Hibbert had one of the signature moments in these playoffs, his great block to deny Carmelo Anthonys dunk try in Indianas clinching second-round win over the New York Knicks. Hibbert stayed on the bench. James drove and scored. Secondguessing commenced. I would say we would probably have him in next time, Vogel said. Said James: You cant say what would have been different. LeBron, Heat dig deep to top Pacers I would say we would probably have him in next time. FRANKVOGEL Indiana head coach See HEAT, Page B4 By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Despite some last-inning rally action from Utility Tec, Pool Paradise held on to the lead and earned a 8-6 win as the two teams went head-tohead in Dixie Boys action at the Durrah Martin Sports Complex in Avon Park Tuesday night. Pool Paradise started the night with Hunter Martinezs single followed by two stolen bases, which was later brought home when Justin Bickman hit a shot that bounced off Utility T ec pitcher Hunter Warren. Warren was able to recover from the play to make a second out, then striking out the next batter to keep Pool Paradise at 1-0. Adarius Council led things off for Utility Tec in the bottom of the first with a single before Dillon Panteline hit a shot to the right-center gap to bring in Council and put himself on third base. P anteline was able to steal home on a passed ball to bring the score to 2-1 before Pool Paradise starting pitcher Bickman closed out the inning with a strikeout. Neither team could find any gaps in the second inning, keeping the score 21 in Utility Tecs favor. The tables turned in the third inning, however, as Pool Paradise earned back their lead and tacked on some insurance runs to boot. Logan Gregiss shot narrowly escaped the outstretched glove of the Utility Tec left fielder to put him on second base. Austin Garza followed with a successful hit-andr un, and an error allowed G ergis and Garza to come across the plate with the tying and go-ahead runs. B ickman offered up an RBI single and was foll owed by a Wyatt Cordell sacrifice fly to see the board Utility Tec persists, Pool Paradise prevails See DIXIE, Page B3 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Seth Hamilton leaps for an overthrow at third in T uesdays win for Pool Paradise.

C M Y K now at 5-2. S cott Hamilton then came in to relieve in the bottom of the third with the bases loaded. His efforts kept Utility Tec a t bay, with a fielders choice and a stikeout keeping the score at 5-2. The fourth saw another scoreless inning for both teams. Martinez reached on a walk and proceeded to steal second in the top of the fifth. Awild pitch went around t he back of Daniel Simons as Martinez was stealing third, so he rounded the bag and took off for home. Despite suffering an ankle injury in the process, Martinez was able to cross the plate to add to Pool Paradises lead. However, this injury left Pool Paradise with only eight healthy players for the night, as the team has suffered a number of injuries this season including the likes of Trey Frazier who has tendonitis in his elbow and is out for a few weeks. Bickman added another RBI along with Alex Colon to add more insurance for Pool Paradise. Utility Tec pitcher James Tomblin then came in to close the inning, 8-2. Both teams were once again scoreless for the next two at-bats, proving just how competitive the night had been. This left the game at the bottom of the sixth, with Utility Tec the home team battling a six-run deficit. The team rose to the challenge and had the fans on their toes as they crept on Pool Paradises lead. Tyler Young reached after a dropped-third-strike to lead off the inning before coming in on a double from Zach Landress. Pantelines single moved Landress to third as Warren stepped into the box. Warren followed with a two-run single to put the score at 8-5. Tomblin then laced a grounder up the middle to bring in one more run for Utility Tec. Pool Paradise then sent Simons to the mound, where he struck out the next batter. With the tying run at the plate, Tomblin was caught stealing third to finish the game. This game put Utility Tec at 2-7-1 for the season, while Pool Paradise kept their 6-0-1 winning streak. They played well, said Utility Tec coach Stacy Landress. This was the first time Hunter has pitched all year and he threw really well. Utility Tec has been facing a few challenges of their own, but as Landress explains it, They are coming around. The team played really well last night too, they have been way better these last couple games. As for the decreasing roster of healthy Pool Paradise players, head coach Dean Frazier explained, When you lose the backbone of your team ina league like this where the talent is so spread out, you lose one or two good players and it pretty much cripples you as far as the season goes. Its going to be tough for us. Most of my kids are young-years oldyou lose a 14-year old with experience, it is going to be tough to overcome. onight we gutted one out and that is what we are going to have to do the rest of t he year, Frazier continued. ere beat up and missing players, but this is the reality and the younger kids are going to have to step up and become leaders. They are going to have to take that next step. o-ring in the middle of the worm and the hook completely exposed, looped through the ring, seems to be all wrong for this type of fishing. But Derrick certainly makes it work and has proven to me many times that its often a more successful offering than my conventional Texas-rigged worm. The fish were aggressive and within the first couple of hours we boated close to a dozen fish, ranging from 2 to5 pounds. Jordan, fishing from the back of the boat was somewhat limited in his ability to flip due to his medical condition, but he continued to try different baits in the hope of getting a hit. Exhausting our first area, we moved to another spot, only to find the fishing slowing down as the sun rose higher in the sky. Its not unusual during the summer months to see some really good action early and then, often by late morning and early afternoon, as the sun hits overhead, the bass just seem to disappear. By 11:30 a.m., after trying a couple of spots with limited success, I decided to go back to where wed caught fish earlier. Its been my experience, particularly on Lake Istokpoga, that if you can find bass using a particular area early, theyll often be there all day, moving in and out of the reeds in search of food. My first flip into the reeds produced a hefty 5 pounder followed by another fish in the 3 pound class. Incredible! We had fished this area for the better part of two hours and truly believed we had caught every fish willing to bite when wed left to find other fish-holding areas. It was as if wed never fished this area at all. Being a tournament fisherman, I always mentally keep track of our five biggest bass, just to get a feel for what our total weight would have been for the day. We were pushing 15 pounds when Jordan finally scored. Struggling to stand, Jordan set up on a big fish who liked the looks of a baby brush hog and the fight was on. Expertly working the bass around pockets of reeds, Jordan wore the bass out and as I netted the fish, I couldnt help but notice the smile that reached from ear to ear. This was our biggest bass of the day, a nice 6 pounder, capping off our five fish total at around 18 pounds. Not enough to win most of the tournaments on Lake Istokpoga, but a nice fivefish limit and a great way to finish the day. Im sure as Jordan spends his summer recuperating from surgery, the memory o f catching this bass will keep him motivated to look forward to fishing in the Fall.

C M Y K Wade finished with 19 points for the Heat, who got 17 from Bosh and 16 from Chris Andersen who was 7 f or 7 from the field, and 2 for 2 from the line off the Miami bench. A ndersen is now shooting a ridiculous 29 for 35 in these playoffs, or 83 percent. George scored 27 points for the Pacers, who got 26 from David West and 19 from Hibbert. It just felt like everything was in our favor, George said. And you know, when that 3 went down and obviously when I got fouled at the 3-point line, us being in position to win that game, you feel confident (that going to be able to take care of business. Game 2 is Friday night in Miami. Officials reviewed James play at the end, though it was clear he beat the clock, and the Pacers walked slowly t oward their locker room, lamenting one that got away by no fault of Georges. George was fouled by Wade on the play where the Pacers had to think they had s tolen the series opener. Referee Jason Phillips said Wade hit George, and the Pacersstar made all three free throws for the 16th lead change of the night. The final lead change came moments later. elcome to the Eastern Conference finals, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Back and forth the whole way The final few seconds of regulation were stunning, with Ray Allen the sixthbest free-throw shooter in NBAhistory missing one that proved big, and George making a miracle happen. Trailing by two with 17.7 seconds left, the Pacers had to foul Allen, who surely would have been their last choice. But he missed one of the two free throws, and it remained a one-possession game. Indiana brought the ball into the frontcourt, called time, and then seemed to have nothing really working as the final seconds of regulation ticked away. So George simply made something happen. From way deep from the newly applied Eastern Conference finals sticker on the side of the court, technically George connected with 0.7 seconds left, tying the game and giving Indiana life. Allen didnt get much of a desperation shot off at the end of regulation, and to overtime the teams went. It took an overtime to get it done, Spoelstra said. Glad to get that one. The Pacers kept landing the first punches in the extra s ession. George made two free throws to open the OT, and Andersen tied it with two of his own. Hibbert scored from close r ange, and Wade answered with an easy one after a runout for the 16th tie of the night. G eorge was far from done. He went past James, got into the lane, tossed up a shot after contact and started what became a three-point play that put the Pacers up 99-96. M iami had three chances at the tie a desperation 3pointer by Battier as the shot clock was expiring, then a 3point try by Bosh and another 3 attempt by Battier. All missed. But Bosh grabbed the rebound, scored while being fouled by George with 49.7 seconds left, calmly swished the free throw and the teams were what else? tied again at 99-all. James scored on a drive with 10.8 seconds left in the overtime, and George answered with the three free t hrows. With Hibbert on the bench, Indiana had one plan for James on the last play. e wanted LeBron to shoot a jumper right there, G eorge said. He had other ideas. A nd after 3 hours, 18 mi nutes, it was over. ere excited about the win, James said. But we have to get better going into Game 2.

C M Y K NEWYORK (APThe American Cancer Society one of the nations best known and influential health advocacy groups is 100 years old this week. Back in 1913 when it was formed, cancer was a lesser threat for most Americans. The biggest killers then were flu, pneumonia, tuberculosis, and stomach bugs. At a time when average life expectancy was 47, few lived long enough to get cancer. But 15 doctors and businessmen in New York City thought cancer deserved serious attention, so they founded the American Society for the Control of Cancer. The modern name would come 31 years later. Some historical highlights: 1913 The American Society for the Control of Cancer is founded in New York City. 1944 The organization is renamed the American Cancer Society. The change is spurred by Mary Lasker, the wife of advertising mogul Albert Lasker. 1946 Aresearch program is launched, built on $1 million raised by Mary Lasker. Ayear later, Dr. Sidney Farber of Boston announces the first successful chemotherapy treatment. 1948 The cancer society pushes the Pap test, which has been credited with driving a 70 percent decline in uterine and cervical cancer. 1964 Prodded by the cancer society and other groups, U.S. Surgeon General Luther Terry issues a report irrefutably linking smoking to cancer. 1971 The cancer society helps lead passage of the National Cancer Act to ramp up research money. President Nixon declares a national war on cancer, which becomes an extended effort derided by some as a medical Vietnam. 1976 The cancer society suggests women 40 and older consider a mammogram if their mother or sisters had breast cancer. 1976 The cancer society hosts a California event to encourage smokers to quit for the day. Ayear later, the annual Great American Smokeout is launched nationally. 1988 Atlanta becomes headquarters for the society. 1997 The cancer society recommends yearly mammograms for women over 40. 2000 Dr. Brian Druker of Oregon reports the first success with targeted cancer therapy. 2003 The cancer society stops recommending monthly breast self-exams. But it continues to urge annual mammograms for most women over 40.

S.I., Atlanta, Ga. A nswer: When I heard about her double mastectomy, my heart sank for herb ecause Im sure she was paralyzed by fear. After all, n obody wants to hear the C word leave their doctors lips. Her decision was based on the doctors she trusts, but I disagree with it. S hes supposedly removing her ovaries next. Should w e tell her the BRCA1 gene increases risk of pancreatic cancer? Shell yank it. Inm en, the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene increases risk o f testicular and prostate cancer. Poor Brad, do you think hell humor his wife? T hese surgeons are going to dissect her while shes still alive and thriving. Good grief! She wont be thriving very long if theyt ake out her ovaries and begin drug therapy to replace progesterone and estrogen. Certain hormone replacement medicationsi ncrease risk of breast cancer (a tragic irony a s depression, gallstones, blood clots, uterine cancer,h eart attack and stroke. And she pays her doctors to keep her healthy. Preventative breast removal is a disturbinglyp opular trend that is being hailed as a reasonable, if not celebrated choice. Saline or silicone implants make it harder to detectb reast cancer and according to the British Medical Journal, increase a womans risk of dying should she happen to develop breast cancer. Angelinas story makes me admire Suzanne Somers even more. I know her from medical conferences and book signings because we share the same circle as a uthors of health books. I love her; everybody loves her. She was diagnosed with breast cancer years ago, and was forced to make a life or death decision. She chose well. The bombshell author still thrives today and is just as vivacious as Chrissy from Threes Company. Angelina could have peed in a cup and learned more a bout her breast cancer risk than taking a genetic test, which cost her several thousand dollars. Im talking about a 24-hour urine collection test that provides metabolite levels of your hormones, kind of like glimpsing inside your cells. For example, a naturallyoccurring estrogen metabolite called -methoxyestrad iol protects you from breast cancer. If youre low, y ou can increase levels with natural supplements such as DIM, B vitamins, magne-s ium and others. Detoxifying poisons is critic al. I have more information about this in my ebook, Breast Cancer P rotection, sold at my website. Since when is conventional medicine genuinely interested in preventing dis-e ase? Mastectomies and breast implantation generate trillions of dollars for surgeons, radiologists, hospitals, pharmacies and drugc ompanies. Lifestyle factors, diet, persistent organic p ollutants (POPS or mineral deficiencies andy our bodys innate ability to detoxify poisons all play a role in developing cancer. Common sense will tell you that if remove your breasts,o r ovaries, or whatever ... youre still a delicious host to cancer in your lungs, uterus, pancreas, wherever. Its a dangerous trend.D ont remove body parts to prevent cancer; make your body an inhospitable host.

The case concerns a 43-year-old husband and father who traveled to Rome from Mexico to attend FrancisMass on Sunday in St.P eters Square. At the end of the Mass, Francis blessed several wheelchair-boundf aithful as he always does, including a man possessed by the devil, according to the priest whob rought him, the Rev. Juan Rivas. Francis laid his hands on the m ans head and recited a prayer. The man heaved deeply a halfdozen times, shook, then slumped i n his wheelchair. The images, broadcast worldwide, prompted the television station of the Italian bishopsconference to declare that according tos everal exorcists, there was no doubt that Francis either performed an exorcism or a simpler prayer to free the man from the devil. T he Vatican was more cautious. In a statement Tuesday, it said Francis didnt intend to perform any exorcism. But as he often does for the sick o r suffering, he simply intended to pray for someone who was suffering who was presented to him. T he Rev. Gabriele Amorth, a leading exorcist for the diocese of Rome, said he performed a lengthye xorcism of his own on the man Tuesday morning and ascertained h e was possessed by four separate demons. The case was related to the l egalization of abortion in Mexico City, he said. Amorth told RAI state radio that even a short prayer, without the full rite of exorcism being per-f ormed, is in itself a type of exorcism. That was a true exorcism, he said of Francisprayer. Exorcisms arent just done according to ther ules of the ritual. Rivas took the Vatican line, saying it was no exorcism but that Francis merely said a prayer to free the man from the devil. Since no one heard what he said, including me who was right there, you can say he did a prayerf or liberation but nothing more, Rivas wrote on his Facebook page, which was confirmed by his reli-g ious order, the Legionaries of Christ. F ueling the speculation that Francis did indeed perform an exorcism is his frequent reference t o Satan in his homilies as well as an apparent surge in demand for exorcisms among the faithful despite the irreverent treatment the rite often receives fromH ollywood. Who can forget the green vomit and the spinning head of the possessed girl in the 1973 cult classic The Exorcist? I n his very first homily as pope on March 14, Francis warned cardinals gathered in the Sistine Chapel the day after he was elected that he who doesnt pray to theL ord prays to the devil. He has since mentioned the devil on a handful of occasions,m ost recently in a May 4 homily when in his morning Mass in the Vatican hotel chapel he spoke oft he need for dialogue except with Satan. With the prince of this world you cant have dialogue: Let this be clear! he warned. The Pope and the devil: Is Francis an exorcist? M CT The Vatican says Pope Francis did n ot perform an exorcism Sunday, but other disagree.
C M Y K A fter putting her children to bed, a mother changed from her work clothes into am ore comfortable outfit and proceeded to wash her hair. L ike children often do, they did not go to sleep as they had been instructed. As the m other heard the children getting more and more rambunctious, her patience began to grow thin. Finally, she threw a towel a round her wet head, stormed into the childrens room, and yelled at them to get back in bed. As she left the room, she heard her 3-y ear-old say with a trembling voice, Who was t hat? We have all undergone the s tartling metamorphosis of anger at one time or another, and we each deal with varying degrees of anger in our lives. Some people becomea ngry more quickly than others. Some people become angry more often than others. And, some people become angry more intense-l y than others. However, is anger always wrong? I have heard it said many times that we should never become angry because Anger is a sin. But, is that true? Is anger sinful? The Bible teaches us that anger is quite often sinful, but it is not always sinful. Let us examine why. First, if being angry is always a sin, then God sinned in Exodus 4:14 when we read that the anger of the Lord burned against Moses. But, God cannot sin. We read in James 1:13t hat God cannot be tempted by evil, and 1 John 1:5 d escribes God as being Light and in Him there is nod arkness at all. Therefore, anger must not always be sinful. Second, if being angry is always a sin, then Jesuss inned in Mark 3:5 when He looked with anger at a group of scheming Pharisees who were trying to trick Him. But, Jesus nevers inned. Hebrews 4:15 records that Jesus faced all of the temptations of life that we do, yet He did so without sin. Therefore, anger must not always be sinful. Third, if being angry is always a sin, then the Bible teaches us in Ephesians 4:26 to do the impossible. It reads, Be angry, and yet do not sin. This passage demonstrates that anger is n ot always sinful. Therefore, we conclude that two types of anger exist. Anger in con-t rol and for the right reasons is good. Anger out of control a nd for the wrong reasons is sin. It is true that anger is not a lways wrong, however, I believe that most anger we encounter is wrong. Next week, we will learn more about the type of angert hat is sinful and how to keep it out of our lives.

Kevins Komments Kevin Patterson A ssociated PressM UNCIE, Ind. Ball State University is investigating an atheist organiza-t ions complaint that one of the professors at the Indiana college is teaching religion r ather than science. The Freedom From R eligion Foundation has filed a formal objection to Eric Hedins teaching with university officials. Hedin teaches an honors classc alled Boundaries of Science, which the foundation maintains teaches creationism rather than science. The foundation is dedicated to nontheism and separation of church and state. H edin is listed as a member on the Ball State website a s a member of the department of physics and astronomy, not biology. The facul-t y directory says he teaches classes in nanoscience and cosmology. Faculty own the curriculum. In large part, its a facu lty matter, Provost Terry King told The Star Press. But we have to ensure that our teaching is appropriate. All I have so far is a com-p laint from an outside person. We have not had any internal complaints. But we do take this very seriously and will look into it. The course is an elective, not a required class, Kings aid.R eport notes increase in antiSemitism around the worldWASHINGTON The S tate Department has appointed a special envoy to monitor and combat antiSemitism as a new report documents a global increasei n incidents of antiSemitism and Holocaust denial.

Rather than buy the young couple a gift,w e instead gave them a check for $1,000. Imagine o ur astonishment when a month later the following arrived in our mailbox: Dear Lorettaand Evan, Thank you for the generous donation. We really enjoyed spending that money. If ever you feel like you have toom uch of it, we would gladly take it off your h ands. Love, Masonand Candace A bby, my husband and I have worked hard for m any years in our business and have been blessed by the Lord. We a re not millionaires. We were happy and humbled to be able to share with them until we received this. The money wasnt ad onation; it was a gift. Stung in Sioux City DearStung: Lets hope the note you received was an unfortunate attempt ath umor. While the message may have gone over like a l ead balloon and Im sure the parents would beb eyond embarrassed if they knew, at least you received a thank-you for your generosity. I hear from many people whoc omplain that their gifts were not acknowledged at all. DearAbby: One of my c o-workers takes company research presentation books into the restroom with him multiple times a day and spends upwards of half an hour in there with them. The unsanitary implications of this drive me batty. I am not germophobic, but taking shared materials into the bathroom while youre doing your business is just too much for me. Its not like hes taking in a newspaper that can be tossed out; these are research materials that we must all share. My co-worker told me I need to get over it, that this is a me issue. Am I crazy or is taking shared workplace materials into the bathroom gross and inappropriate? Waiting For E. Coli to Kill Me DearWaiting: You are asking the wrong person this question. You should be asking the head of human resources or your boss. Im no germophobe either, but I agree that what your co-worker is doing is extremely inappropriate. You should not have to sanitize your hands after touching anything your co-worker might have touched, but thats what Im suggesting you do. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Thank you hits sour note Dear Abby B y JOCELYN NOVECK Associatd PressEver wonder what it would feel like to suddenly wake up in another universe? You could find out, perh aps, by joining the next space mission to another g alaxy, or, slightly easier, you could go to your local multiplex and watch Fast &F urious 6 without having seen the first five movies. S hould you decide to undertake this anthropological experiment, youd immed iately discover there are things everyone except you already knows. For example: jokes about baby oil and big foreheads are very funny int his universe. Cars, of course, are the most important thing, and of course there are no speed limits. Weapons come next on thel ist, and the bigger the better but in one-on-one physic al combat, bald heads are surprisingly effective.S peaking of those fights: Theyre brutal, yet somehow, no organs get damaged and even bruises are minimal. And oh yes, bikinis and b ottoms are important. Not bikini bottoms well, those too but bottoms in bikinis. What this has to do with car racing is not entirelyc lear. Most importantly, in this universe, there is no such thing as less is more. More is always more, and so, Fast & Furious 6 will delight fans of the franchise,b ecause there is more of everything here. Director J ustin Lin gives us not only great cars doing ridiculoust hings at ridiculous speeds, but also a huge army tank and a great stunt involving a giant cargo plane. Newcomers will be a little c onfused as to who everyone is, since there is little explanation at this point, but fans will be glad to know their favorites are back, startingw ith Vin Diesels Dom, the hotshot driver with the clean-shaven head (the better to butt other heads with) and a strong sense of family. W hen we first see him, hes careening down a winding cliff road in the Canary Islands with cohort/former cop Brian OConner (PaulW alker). Turns out theyre heading to the hospital, w here OConners wife (and Doms sister), Mia (Jordana Brewster, in a small role thist ime) is giving birth. Asweet family moment. H appily, amid all the noise, the races theres a terrific one through the s treets of downtown London the crashes and the outlandish stunts, there is some humor, and its very welcome. P articularly funny are Tyrese Gibson as Roman and Chris Ludacris Bridges as Tej, Doms partners in crime. Also back for more adven-t ures are the attractive duo of Han (Sung Kang ( Gal Gadot); Gina Carano is a newcomer as an agent w hose fighting skills give Letty a run for her money. Not everyone gets out alive. As for the lucrative franchise, though, its moret han alive and kicking, judging from the new films overseas success. Apost-credits sequence teases the upcoming seventhf ilm. In the Fast & Furious universe, its not just international criminals who rake it in.

Fast & Furious 6 has it all. CANNES, France Robert Redford makes actions speak louder than words in shipwreck drama All Is Lost. He doesnt have much choice. Aman-versus-nature tale about a lone sailor adrift on the Indian Ocean, J.C. Chandors movie has no dialogue, just a few lines of voiceover at the start and a couple of heartfelt expletives. Redford said he was excited by the challenge of being solitary, alone, without having the crutch of words. The second feature from Margin Call director Chandor, All Is Lost is screening out of competition at Cannes, where both it and 76-year-old screen icon Redford got a warm reception Wednesday. I believe in the value of silence in film, Redford told reporters. I believe it in life as well, because theres a lot of talk around maybe too much. Silence forces you as an actor to be completely inhabiting your role, he added. If youre not, its going to show. And thats an attractive challenge. It allows you to be totally free and unaware of everything around you except what you had to be aware of, which is the boat, the sea and the troubles that were coming. Redford, himself the director of movies including Quiz Show and The Horse Whisperer, also said he really wanted to have an experience where I could give myself over completely to a director Redford swept away in shipwreck saga All Is Lost Redford
C M Y K DetermineYourCareerGoalsThink about what you really want to do with your career and be specific. Ask yourself some questions:What are the things that interest you most?What motivates you?In what kind of work environment do you thrive? What kinds of jobs fit these criteria? If youre not sure, it can be helpful to take a personal assessment. Doing so can help you uncover your passions and preferences, said Dean Berry. It can help you identify strengths and can help you make an informed decision about your careerIdentifySkillsGapsThere are more than three million job openings in this country, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, yet many companies are finding it difficult to fill those positions. Acommon reason given for this is that employers cant find qualified people with the appropriate skills. Asurvey by University of Phoenix found that many people are recognizing the need to add skills in order to improve their careers:89 percent of working Americans believe there is still room for them to grow in their careers, and can point to at least one skill they will need to learn.58 percent who are not currently enrolled in school full-time believe that going back to school would be crucial if they were considering a new career path.36 percent say they need additional education in order to get to the next level of their careers. aking an objective look at the skills you currently have and comparing them to the skills required for the type of job you desire, gives you a clear picture of what it will take to make the job changes you want, Dean Berry said.Start by writing down the skills, knowledge and qualifications you currently have.Next, research the types of jobs you want, and write down the qualifications needed.Compare the two lists, and take notes on the skills youre currently missing. Once you do that, you can make decisions on how youre going to bridge that skills gap, said Dean Berry. At the University, we are seeing working adults pursuing education in order to address their own skills gaps and its helping position them for career growth.BridgetheGapsIf you have a skills gap in one area, such as knowledge of current computer software, you can take a single course or seminar to catch up. But for many, getting or finishing a college degree is the key to making a positive career change. University of Phoenixs survey found that having a degree has given those surveyed tangible benefits:63 percent of those with bachelors degrees or higher believe that their education led to more responsibility.60 percent of those with bachelors degrees or higher believe that their education positively affected their ability to get promoted.Those with bachelors degrees also say they perceive that their education led to other benefits including receiving raises (58 percent), keeping a job (58 percent) and being given more management opportunities (57 percent). For those returning to the classroom after many years, theyll find that learning tools and platforms have changed significantly, said Dean Berry. With online learning and other innovations, the classroom is evolving to mirror the workplace and the skills that employers want. Online coursework is one way that many adul ts are achieving their goals while holding down a job and/or raising a family. Fifty-nine percent of those surveyed say they are currently taking such a course, or plan to in the near future. When investigating education opportunities, look into your online options to help you maximize your time and pursue the degree plan that best fits your needs. The bottom line is that you have to take charge of your career, said Dean Berry. With a good plan and clear goals in place, you can mak e yourself more marketable and put yourself on the path to a more fulfilling and rewarding career Learn more about available education programs and career services at www.phoenix.edu.
